As FIFA edges towards the finals, Bollywood catches the next flight to Doha!

Ananya Panday was in the stands to watch the Argentina vs Croatia semi-final, which Argentina won.

But the highlight of the match was when she spotted David Beckham -- and swore that he waved at her!

Karisma Kapoor, who's a Messi fan like the rest of the world, was watching the match too.

Now, this picture of Rasika Dugal and her husband Mukul Chadda tasting the delights of Vietnam, demands a caption.

What do you think is Rasika telling Mukul? And what's going on in Mukul's head? Tell us in the message board below.

Meanwhile, Rasika writes, 'Sharing a Bánh mì (a baguette filled with many wonders) is the true test of a relationship! The one at Bánh Mì Phượng #HoiAn lived up to its #AnthonyBourdain recommendation and more...,' she writes.

'One of my top three meals of the vacation. Nothing beats street food. Needless to say... the next time round (because no one can eat just one) we got two!'
