Vicious Gulenist schoolteachers and other grave threats might have contributed to Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s grim visage, but Aamir, buoyed by Dangal’s reception in China, looks pleased nonetheless. He was in Istanbul to promote Secret Superstar, a cry for equality for women. Isn’t that more of the same?
For a man who has looked at his own face peering out from all types of screens, billboards and pages for half his life, doesn’t Amitabh tire of it, as here in Lucknow, with Jaya and a selfie stick?

The horror of it! But this embroidered jacket, paired with a denim shirt, are surely not lifts? Anyone, nothing less than a protest from Beijing will satisfy us.
The Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer came out during Monday Night Football, and it was well worth the wait. The trailer combined our first ‘real’ look at Luke Skywalker in decades and Carrie Fisher’s final appearance. The trailer was chilling and exciting and just titillating enough to get us to December.
