Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who became the proud father of baby girl Nitara three months back, says his family is now complete with the arrival of the new born.The 45-year-old actor also has son Aarav, 10, with wife Twinkle and he said he does not face any problem taking care of a newborn all over again after so many years."I seem to have remembered all the little techniques that make a baby go gaga when I enter the room. So far everything has just been so smooth. My wife is over the moon and in her elements right now. A baby girl is exactly what our home needed," Akshay told PTI."Now me and my son are going to have to stick together to fight for male pride in the house. Or least fight for our Sunday cricket matches and that is about it. The rest of the time we are more than happy to live for all the women in our family," he added.This has been a good year for Akshay with three of his films Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and OMG! Oh My God tasting roaring success at the box office.His last film of the year Khiladi 786, a very commercial action film, has just hit theatres."It is the kind of action that makes you be a part of some good fun at the cinema. You can call it over the top, or insane, even incredible if you wish! Action of any kind can be admired in any way you wish; there are a million or more opinions and expectations to please," he said.The actor is often referred to as 'Khiladi Kumar' for appearing in action films like Khiladi, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Mr and Mrs Khiladi, International Khiladi and Khiladi 420."All 'Khiladi' films have had action - whether it was real, over the top or unimaginable. Of all the films out there, my action films have been stepping stones to so many," he added.Khiladi 786 also has Asin Thottumkal, who was Akshay's leading lady in this year's release Housefull 2 and the actor said that they share a great comfort level."Our comfort level was built pretty much by the second day of shoot in Housefull 2. So by the time she walked onto my sets in Khiladi 786, we already had our own way of working together. For me she is very easy to work with and considering the amount of successful movies she has in her pocket, her attention to detail and positive drive to work is wonderful to endure. Many I know would be over confident by this point but Asin is truly an asset to work with," Akshay said."Khiladi 786, directed by Ashish R Mohan, also features Mithun Chakraborty, Raj Babbar, Manoj Joshi and Himesh Reshammiya, who has also composed the foot tapping music of the film."Himesh has created superb music for Khiladi 786 and you can't doubt that even for a second," Akshay said.PTI

'Transcendence' review: The film is clunky and lifeless

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
