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.

Quiz
Kashmir has been the scene for massive protests following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani on July 8. “Non-lethal” pellet guns used against the protesters have blinded many and 45-odd people have died in the face-off against security forces. The scale of protests have led to frayed tempers in the mainland with many resorting to high-voltage jingoism. But how well do you know Kashmir? Find out, take this quiz.

  • Melanie Hamrick eschews the traditional tutu for an unusual garment for her part in The Swan Lake, but that is not the point. It’s that the 29-year-old ballerina is 72-year-old veteran rockstar Mick Jagger’s latest girlfriend. The couple are expecting a child—Jagger’s eighth. Well done, man! You are an inspiration.
  • In Jaipur Palace was held the circuitous, ritual-heavy (‘col­­o­­ur­ful’) coming-of-age celebrations of the titular maharaja, Pad­manabh Singh, a keen polo player and a student in England.
  • Which PM worth his salt would come out in open support in a gay pride march? Canada’s warm, intelligent, popular, handsome, popinjay of a prime minister was in his elements at a pride in Tor­o­nto. And he made selfie-­takers and hand-shakers happy.
  • No, this is not a dignified lady diplomat parlaying with Dalai Lama. It’s Lady Gaga, in her demurest avatar, apparently discussing yoga. While you marvel, the Chinese seethe with anger, adding one name to a list that bothers nobody.
