Swagger of 70s

When have superstar and  dreaded film editor come closer in terms of glamour? Never since Hema Malini and  Shobhaa De rocked Bollywood in the ’70s. Since when did such a friendly duo step into their 70s with oomph intact? Never before, till they got together for some gossip and photos. No, not for saree ads; they just happen to be this luminous.

New Match

He’s skipper of both India and Northeast United in the ISL. All he has time for this season is to hop from stadium to sta­­d­ium. Yet, when the shehnai sounds, all duty dissolves before that clarion call. So it was with Sunil Chhetri, when he trooped off to Calcutta, donned Nep­ali and Bengali (here, he’s seen with a topor on him) att­­ire, and mar­­ried Sonam, daughter of Mohun Bagan great Subrata Bhattacharya.

Together Again

Once a couple starts to app­ear in commercials together, it’s usually taken to be a sign of serious rom­antic intent. Naturally, with Virat and Anushka so mat­ure about their relationship, unwi­lling to hoodwink salivating celebrity writers, rumours have been rife and repetitive. It’s that ‘wedding’ thing, and it is supposed to take place in Milan. Small matter—Anushka’s manager knows nothing!

In The Dressy Circle

When the award is termed ‘glamour and style’, it’s incumbent upon the bearers of that hallo­wed quality to live up to the billing. Such was the case with Kareena and Rekha. Matched in white, K’s almost-wedding gown met the diva’s sari in good faith, but came away defeated.

Hit At The Very Top

After raking in millions everywhere it cared to wrestle, Dangal was chosen as best Asian film at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards. Both Shabana Azmi and Russell Crowe served as jury members there. The award was unanimous.

Oh, Show The Way!

Think hard: Who is hotter than Disha Patani in tinseltown? Not with the come-hither exertions of some, or the hard-won cutesy dressiness of others, but with the casual earnestness of someone sure of complete collapse of res­istance at the merest sight of that untamed hair. Found a name? Bet you haven’t.

This Too Happened

While reporting the news of veteran actor Shashi Kapoor’s demise, two national TV channels ended up mourning and remembering Congress’s Shashi Tharoor. By the time an apology came, the MP had taken to tweeting, saying his office had started getting condolence calls as a result of the mix-up.

  • Diego Maradona—the very name conjures up ima­ges of opponents genuflecting before his genius in 1986. But the ‘God of football’ has mellowed. In  Calcutta—where people contemplate violence if you speak ill of him—he said he was just a ‘simple footballer’.
  • When have superstar and  dreaded film editor come closer in terms of glamour? Never since Hema Malini and  Shobhaa De rocked Bollywood in the ’70s. Since when did such a friendly duo step into their 70s with oomph intact? Never before, till they got together for some gossip and photos. No, not for saree ads; they just happen to be this luminous.
  • The DDCA conclave pitched Virat Kohli at Bis­han Singh Bedi; respect was shown by the young man for his old coach, a hard taskmaster, who ret­­­urned love. Shift the scene to the IFFI in Goa, where poor Akshay Kumar bent towards Big B. In return, he got this surly tweet: “...no Akshay this is not done”.
  • The crafty Zaheer Khan mentored Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the art of fast bowling. They got hitched on the same day. Zaheer’s court marriage with Sagarika Ghatge in Mumbai was a first step in a three-tier celebration. Bhuvi, fresh from a great performance, and seen here at his baraat in Meerut, was married to Nupur Nagar. May the speedmen be happy!
