'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?

  • Arjun Tendulkar, on the threshold of adulthood, is a busy lad—honing his skills by bowling at the Mumbai Indians’ nets, acting as his father’s  younger self in a new docu-pic.... And he visits the Wankhede on IPL match days, like here, during a Mumbai-Gujarat face-off. The occasional big hit seems to distract him at times too!
  • Gargantuan in scope, box-ofice success, even in name, and a mighty confection between myth and an indeterminate past, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, like its precursor, is nevertheless technically sound. The crew converged  in Chennai for the Tamil audio launch, where stars Prabhas and Anushka Shetty soak in the accolades.
  • Whether at Benaras, Haridwar or Rishikesh, every celeb digs the pretty, photogenic poignancy of the evening Ganga aarti. Deepika’s choice of homage was at Rishikesh, to where she repaired with mom Ujjala (in white) for rest and recuperation. Jai ho!
  • Theresa May’s Brexit neg­otiations are tanglingly complex; Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon’s dem­and for a second independence referendum is pressing too. But all the  Brit press managed as a headline when the twain met was a caddish ‘Legs-it’. Just look up, boys!
