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.

Quiz
Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro is hosting the 31st Olympic Games from August 5 to 21. This is the first Olympics being held in South America and is going on even as a majority Brazilians are unhappy with their rulers. Here’s a quiz on some random Olympic facts and related trivia.
QUIZ STARTED ON: Aug 11, 2016
  • Bertolucci’s Last Tango in Paris has the city lit up in a smoky, russet light, charged with the eroticism of Brando and Maria Schneider, and jolted by that scene of sexual ass­ault. The recent row    over the ‘fact’ that Schneider was never told  about it by the conniving duo is now refuted by the auteur. Schneider read the screenplay, so she knew everything,   says Bertotlucci. Except that infamous stick of butter. That, too, is a ghastly violation, more so because it hurt the young act­ress immeasurably, casting a pall over her entire life.
  • We see him at IPL matches, or at the nets, rolling an arm over, but it’s a revelation to see Arjun Tendulkar towering over Sachin and Anjali at a Mukesh Ambani party. When did he  grow so tall? Ask that question to Father Time, and wait pat­iently for an answer.
  • Not only has the striking Gigi Hadid, dressed in curls and attitude, mounted a steed boldly, she also piled on hum­our at a music awards at the expense of Melania Trump. Just as taste, good or bad, shows who you are, the subjects of one’s barbs are equally revelatory. 
  • It’s possibly an ersatz legend, but that’s what the beauteous Twinkle Khanna is peddling these days. It was the release of her book,  The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, and lining up for her in solidarity were Ranbir, Alia, Sha­­bana Azmi and many more.
