Fixed Match, Smash Hit

Even sceptics of marriages made in heaven see a grand design in the union of IPL chief Rajiv Shukla’s nephew Abhinav with T-series’s Aashima Kumar. The momentousness blinds us to Kajol’s toga. Ahhhh fine, we admit to wilful blindness.

Down The Peking Order

‘He isn’t either a Shih Tzu or a Pekingese, Akki’ Farzana Contractor seems to say. ‘He’s a Lhasa Apso.’ An honest mistake that. So Khiladi man needn’t look so chastised. Mollification was to be found at the UpperCrust Food Show ’12 spread. ‘Haanji, lots of Chinese fare on the menu.’

That Last Article Of Faith

Let’s see here. Everyone’s got their keshes and their kirpans. We have spotted a kadha or two. And we’ll take them at their word on the kangas and kachehras. All that’s missing at Amritsar’s International Turban Pride 2012 Show are the Kaurs.

Got Milk For Those Cookies?

After that Playboy call-up, Sherlyn Chopra knew a bar had been set. Shedding clothes needed to be tasteful now. Bring Xmas cheer to street kids? That would show Santa she’d been ‘an awful good girl’. If he ain’t hurrying down that chimney yet, we’ll help fill her stockings.

  • 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.
  • 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.
