Actor Ram Kapoor’s weight might be a point of discussion among his fans, but his wife, actor Gautami Kapoor has stopped discussing it with him.

    “I used to initially tell him a lot about losing weight, but not now. If someone wants to change something, it has to come from within them. So I don’t nag him ­anymore,” says Gautami, who is currently seen ­playing the role of Sneha Rishi Mathur in a daily soap.

    On the brighter side, Gautami says that people have started connecting with Ram because of his family man image. “There are friends of mine who call me up and tell me that their husbands can relate to Ram because of his paunch. I guess in a way, Ram’s physique complements the roles that he plays on-screen,” says Gautami, who has worked with Ram in shows such as Ghar Ek Mandir and Kehta Hai Dil.

France's Michel Hazanavicius on Sunday took home the Oscar for best director for silent movie The Artist, at the 84th Academy Awards ceremony.

The 44-year-old, who triumphed over veterans including Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen, had already won a series of gongs for his black-and-white homage to the silent movie era.

"I am the happiest director in the world right now," he said in his acceptance speech.

He is only the second French filmmaker honored by his Hollywood peers, following in the footsteps of Franco-Polish director Roman Polanski, who won a best director Oscar in 2003 for The Pianist.

Hazanavicius is married to Berenice Bejo, with whom he has two children, and who starred in The Artist along with Jean Dujardin.
