Carpet Bagger

Huma Qureshi is a natural on the red carpet of the Berlinale’s Potsdam Theatre—not a glimpse of the extra preening or pouts Bollywood dames save for such occasions. Huma, seen with actor Manish Dayal, was there for the premiere of Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House

Sister Act

If Katrina didn’t come to the aid of a sister as dishy as this, we’re sure others would have, but poor Isabel, who debuted in Dr Cabbie (2014) pines for a Bollywood rel­­e­ase. Launcher Salman was rumoured to help, but backed out. ‘Bad!’, as Potus would tweet.

They Sang Of Joy-Filled Hymns Of Peace

They won the Grammy for ‘best new age album’ for White Sun II, and they are (from left) Adam Berry, Gurujas and Hari Jiwan Singh. What’s special? Ten prayer-filled songs are from the Granth Sahib; another is influenced by Guru Gobind Singh. Well Done Grammy!

How Walls Are Torn Down

It takes a sloganeering rump to answer the bumbling Trump. Fashion and politics are old comrades in arms, and LRS Studio didn’t want the well-attended stage of the New York Fashion Week to go waste. Off went a model down the runway, giving the finger to ‘The Wall’ with every swing of her hips.  

The Boys Think Twice

Is au naturel normal? Yes, says Playboy in a joyous harking back to its unclothed roots. Readers (well, viewers too), forget last year’s ill-adv­ised cover-up. Playmate Elizabeth Elam (look up!) would make your flesh tingle.

Lady Flash

Even if this reminds you, for a blink, Salma Hayek with a python around her neck, Beyonce’s open-bellied celebration of maternity was more poignant. Described as a ‘sci-fi fertility ritual’, her Gra­mmy routine fea­­tured her mother and daughter.

This Too Happened

Congratulations, Adele! The British singer won the 2017 Grammy Award for the Album of the Year, this time for 25. Adele has made history as the only artiste ever to sweep the Album, Record and Song of the Year twice. Adele beat Beyonce (Lemonade), Drake (Views), Justin Bieber (Purpose) and Sturgill Simpson (A Sailor’s Guide to the Earth). Adele won all her five nominations, including Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album in addition to the above.

  • He left the White House in charge of a trumpet and exchanged Air Force One for a kiteboard without batting an eye. That’s how cool Barack Obama is. At the Virgin Islands, Obama ceded aquatic control to billionaire Richard Branson.
  • You don’t want to museumise Virat Kohli just yet! But Boria Majumdar’s sports shrine in Cal has a lot of bric-a-brac: Sachin’s ‘100th 100’ gloves, Messi’s boots etc.  We want David Shepherd’s Triple Nelson hop!
  • It’s 25 years since A. R. Rahman’s Chinna, Chinna Asai first held his fans spellbound. Now his sister Isshrath Quadhre is all set to make music for the Hollywood movie Lake of Fire. Jai Ho to her.
