Water Worlds

Well surely, Bollywood would use the splashes of Holi in adding colour to one of its splotchy efforts. Such was the case with Badrinath Ki Dulhania actors Alia and Varun, as youths danced attendance with their cellphones. In contrast was the adorable domestic scene presented by Rakhee and Gulzar. She wielding a pichkari, sporting an impish smile; he looking on indulgently. Memories are made of this.

The Wind Carries Him

Is spending your birthday on the sets of a sitcom a great idea? Amir and wife Kiran look thrilled to bits though on the popular Marathi show Chala Hawa Yeu Dya on March 14, performing a Gudi Puja. But Amir is not alone—the other two heavyweight Khans have already been there.

Dreamy Eyes

When an aspiring act­ress announces herself as the inheritor of Nutan’s legacy, that’s a heavy cross to bear, and one to be borne with some of the veteran’s dignity and pur­ity of grace. The claimant is Pranutan Bahl, Nutan’s ­grand­-daughter, and thus deserving of our patience.

Her Memorable 45th

That Irom Sharmila didn’t hide her crushing disappointment at the hustings and plaster it with a plastic grin showed her honesty. Instead, she took herself away to Kerala’s Attapady region, in the  healing arms of meditation, and a birthday cake.

Secret Thoughts

With a practised twirl of her flimsy skirt, Evelyn Sharma, an old flame of this page, announces her plans for ‘Evelyn’s Secrets’. No, not her beach tips, we don’t care about that. It’s her lingerie line. That’s talking business!

This Too Happened

The internet has a new ‘frequently searched’, and this time it is ‘complicit’. According to Merriam Webster, lookups for ‘complicit’ meaning “helping to commit a crime...in some way”, spiked after the mock commercial for Ivanka Trump’s perfume, Complicit, aired on Saturday Night Live. Featuring Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka, it gushed, “A woman like her deserves a fragrance all her own, a scent made just for her. Because she’s beautiful... she’s powerful... she’s... Complicit.”

  • Blessed are the restaurateurs of Innato, in Tenerife, Spain, where patrons eat off unclothed model-waitresses and waiters while in the buff. Bamboo partitions offer privacy, but they fall away as morsels uncover more, leaving only the final lettuce. The top draw? A slurpy affair with molten chocolate.
  • Is imbibing white wine the sec­ret to the Queen Elizabeth’s sprightly gait at 90? Be that as it may, she was at her sober best at the UK-India Year of Culture party. Kapil Dev and Kam­ala­hasan crowed about our  ‘shared culture’ and hobnobbed with royalty. Here, Sukanya and Anoushka Shankar chat up the monarch.
  • Lord Venkateswara, generous granter of wishes and acceptor of gifts, would be pleased. The person paying obeisance, helped along with Rs 5 crore worth of jewellery, is Telangana CM K. Chandrasekhara Rao, bound by a vow when he had prayed for the creation of a new state. His donation, then, was due in 2014.
