'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?

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.
