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.  

  • From Dharamshala to Spiti Valley, from McLe­od­­ganj to Andretta, from rocky outcrops to soul-stirring vales...old pals Cyrus Sah­­­u­­kar and Kunal Kapoor are on one heady trip. Soon on your TV!
  • The way Zainab Abbas looks, Angelo, de Villiers or Virat won’t say nay when asked for a selfie. Problem is, their teams all lost the match afterwards. Yet the Pakistani journalist can’t be accused of casting an evil spell on the opposition, for her run started when  Sarfraz Ahmed gave in to her beguiling cameraphone before the match against India. All we can do is to caution Virat not to fall for it again!
  • It’s funny, how Indian relatives of achievers in foreign (Western) lands make such a show of celebration bef­ore a pandering media. The same goes with the Varad­kar family—shown here in their Mumbai home—vis-a-vis Leo Vara­dkar being chosen the PM-elect of Ire­­land. Did the very young (38) and openly gay Leo burst crackers in Dublin?
  • Someday, deeper sociological theses will be written on why Dangal—apart from being a hearty entertainer—has done so well in China. But now for some brute figures—it’s poised   to cross Rs 1,000 crore in just this one market, the biggest non-Hollywood foreign movie. The app­eal is equaly strong across the Taiwan Strait. Would this gaggle of clicksome  Beijing girls visit Haryana next?
