That Cold Shoulder Ardour

From staring down Arjun (see left) to falling for John in I Me Aur Main. Why must Chitrangada bend over backwards for mere posers when even that corset doesn’t enkindle a spark in deadwood?

The Slick Sleekness

His bid for a podium spot in the Mumbai Marathon was a lesson in playin’ fast and losin’. That honour proved a lap too far for Anil Ambani; impressing emcee Haile Gebrselassie didn’t.

In Riotous Indignation

That stagger may well be further pronounced, Mr Rushdie, come the release of Midnight’s Children in Mumbai. A rainbow coalition of the motley is expected. Forecast: weak knees and a drippy nose.

A Viral Form

We cannot, for propriety’s sake, abide fanning Sherlyn Chopra’s naked ambition. It’s getting harder to keep abreast of the bare facts though—a lakh googled, and then ogled, her 3-day-old Kamasutra teaser.  

  • Huma Qureshi is a natural on the red carpet of the Berlinale’s Potsdam Theatre—not a glimpse of the extra preening or pouts Bollywood dames save for such occasions. Huma, seen with actor Manish Dayal, was there for the premiere of Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House. 
  • He left the White House in charge of a trumpet and exchanged Air Force One for a kiteboard without batting an eye. That’s how cool Barack Obama is. At the Virgin Islands, Obama ceded aquatic control to billionaire Richard Branson.
  • You don’t want to museumise Virat Kohli just yet! But Boria Majumdar’s sports shrine in Cal has a lot of bric-a-brac: Sachin’s ‘100th 100’ gloves, Messi’s boots etc.  We want David Shepherd’s Triple Nelson hop!
  • It’s 25 years since A. R. Rahman’s Chinna, Chinna Asai first held his fans spellbound. Now his sister Isshrath Quadhre is all set to make music for the Hollywood movie Lake of Fire. Jai Ho to her.
