'Eyes On The Ball Now'

An old sports adage reasons that neither talent nor heart can be coached. What, if not the innate abundance of both, explains Padma Lak­s­hmi's ability to nab bill­ionaires on the rebound? Vikram Chatwal ought to shake off that Dream state.

Psalm Of The Son

The Book of Fletch spe­aks of how God sent his only begotten son out into the world so that whosoe­ver believed in him enjoy everlasting (shelf) life. Arjun Tendulkar might not be the mess­iah, but his coming (into Mumbai's U-14 team) will be much followed.

Treasures Of The Land

For all of Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima's ovoid loveliness, the paths clicker icon Steve McCurry tread for the Pirelli calendar have nothing on the dusty tra­ils his Kodachrome rolls once blazed along the Oxus.

That Fighting Spirit

After her tiresome exe­rti­ons in Jism 2 failed to aro­use anything more than a premat­ure interest, Sunny Leone tries anot­her backdoor entry into Bollyw­ood, in the Ragini MMS sequel. Will seeking divine int­ervention at Siddhivin­ayak help exorcise old ghosts?

  • From Dharamshala to Spiti Valley, from McLe­od­­ganj to Andretta, from rocky outcrops to soul-stirring vales...old pals Cyrus Sah­­­u­­kar and Kunal Kapoor are on one heady trip. Soon on your TV!
  • The way Zainab Abbas looks, Angelo, de Villiers or Virat won’t say nay when asked for a selfie. Problem is, their teams all lost the match afterwards. Yet the Pakistani journalist can’t be accused of casting an evil spell on the opposition, for her run started when  Sarfraz Ahmed gave in to her beguiling cameraphone before the match against India. All we can do is to caution Virat not to fall for it again!
  • It’s funny, how Indian relatives of achievers in foreign (Western) lands make such a show of celebration bef­ore a pandering media. The same goes with the Varad­kar family—shown here in their Mumbai home—vis-a-vis Leo Vara­dkar being chosen the PM-elect of Ire­­land. Did the very young (38) and openly gay Leo burst crackers in Dublin?
  • Someday, deeper sociological theses will be written on why Dangal—apart from being a hearty entertainer—has done so well in China. But now for some brute figures—it’s poised   to cross Rs 1,000 crore in just this one market, the biggest non-Hollywood foreign movie. The app­eal is equaly strong across the Taiwan Strait. Would this gaggle of clicksome  Beijing girls visit Haryana next?
