  • Our souls are pickled in home food, or the memories of it. Thus, Pep­siCo chief Indra Nooyi and Michelin-starred chef Vikas Khanna rep­aired to a south Indian eatery to discuss plans. The idea is for the firm to expand in the ‘tradit­io­nal and healthy’ food category.
  • Rabindranath Tagore met Argentine poet Victoria Ocampo in Buenos Aires in the 1920s. Their tender, platonic relatio­nship is the subject of Pablo Cesar’s Thinking of Him. The director poses with Victor Banerjee (who plays Tagore) and Raima Sen.
  • Swooping down silently, Akshay scores a Rs 100-crore hat-trick in 2016—Rustom, Housefull 3, Airlift. A celebratory party was obviously on, except for the special guest who materialised all of a sudden—Hollywood megastar Will Smith. Genre-bending camaraderie followed.
