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.

  • 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?
