The Sub-Text

Good call going with those oversized cuffs, Shreyas Navare. Wheeling R.K. Laxman on a tour of your illustrations was reason enough for sweaty palms. Having him pause to actually read into them should have been just cause for the IIT-schooled part-time cartoonist’s penhand to waver. A biting comment at this point? Overkill? Oh boy, You said it.

Bearing Strait

A silk shirt ought never to look as straight-laced as it does on Manmohan at the 18th India-ASEAN conclave in Cambodia. A positively arrestinged look. Just call it the summit’s trough.

The Booster Seat

The first birthday present from daddy, a red Mini Cooper S, may have been a tad premature. Aradhya won’t be pulling them Italian Job-style getaways from the paparazzi for another 17 years yet. And even then, in Mumbai traffic? Fuggedaboutit, Mini-B.  

Getting A Leg Up

For someone so refreshingly generous with both swell and swill, Amisha Patel’s star faded fast. A mag cover and five films on tap, the “hotest” actress looks to be waxing again.

  • A wannabe beauty queen is an idol too. For, to represent India at Miss Universe, Bangalore’s Roshmitha Harimurthy had hurdles to leap over. At her alma mater, Mount Carmel, Rosh aims a selfie, as students and teachers creep in closer.
  • Jennifer Lopez, et al would certainly concede the point that as far as ‘plunging necklines’ go, Deepika’s black blouse is up there with their best dressy efforts. The occ­asion for Deepika’s dazzle statement was the Mexico City premiere of her film xXx: Return of Xander Cage. One can well imagine a Spanish air to her, on what was also her birthday.
  • Post-marriage airiness doesn’t mean Yuvaraj lost sight of his darkest days. On Christmas, when the world celebrates,  Yuvi gave his time to children battling cancer at the St Jude Childcare in Mumbai. We all owe him a bow.
  • Barack Obama is a legend, and a film on his crucially formative years in Columbia is natural. Vikram Gandhi’s Barry stars Devon Terrell and Anya Taylor-Joy (in pic), among others.
