Under the Confluence

Yes, that double dip Anil Ambani looks about ready for ought to get him out of the deep end. Kokilaben knows there's still nectar enough in this pitcher to pull that off. Preity does not seem as confident. Her glass has been half-empty for a while.

Delhi Is Not Far

The night train from Deoli just doesn't hold the same lusty appeal it once did, eh, Mr Bond? We und­erstand. A warm bed and full inkwell in Kasauli trumps having to peddle Hancocks to the boo­kless in Delhi. The blank pages beckon.

Brass Continuum

Does not the end of one act go hand in hand with the opening of another? From providing succour to Aditya after Yash Chopra's passing to mem­orial­is­ing him.... not to jump the (shot)gun, but Rani's ticking all the right boxes.

Bikini Atoll

She may be sporting a two-piece better suited to one of J-Lo's bodaci­ousness, but that is no reason to poke holes—much as we would love to—in Sonal Cha­uh­an's rendition of the dish-out-of-water staple in Fiji for 3G. No, we'll play things close to the chest till it's all busted.

  • Lord Venkateswara, generous granter of wishes and acceptor of gifts, would be pleased. The person paying obeisance, helped along with Rs 5 crore worth of jewellery, is Telangana CM K. Chandrasekhara Rao, bound by a vow when he had prayed for the creation of a new state. His donation, then, was due in 2014.
  • 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!
