Watch Their Steps

When the biggest of the biggies blow their trumpet, Bollywood stands in attendance. At the pre-wedding festivities of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal (Bottom Right) in Udai­pur, Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman willingly colluded in a happy dance. Earlier, pop princess Beyonce (Bottom Left), generously tiara-ed and earringed, had lit up the sangeet festivities.

Victory And A Cake

When we saw Virat’s impro­mptu dance steps standing at first slip in the Adelaide Test, we were surpised that he managed such a cool move. Ah, but twas the first anniversary of Virat and Anushka—the hand­somest high-profile couple that hove into our crowded ken in recent times. If Virat isn’t the impulsive whirlwind we knew, much of it, says he, is due to her inf­luence—a widening of horizon, a deepening of wisdom.

Bells and Bulls Eye

If they get mad at each other they might reach out for their bows and arrows (a dramatic possibility for a romcom), but for now, with an enga­gement ceremony in Ran­chi, India archers (and team mates) Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das have announced their plans for marriage next year. Let medals flow freely along with smiles!

To Where The Honey Is

At the Miss Universe national costume show in Thailand, the chosen gorgeous pranced about, each left to their own apparel. Wrapt in a bronze bodysuit, hair cascading down, a crown of flowers on her head, a pair of wings on her back, eyes raised to the sky, Miss Uruguay Sofia Marr­­ero could have taken flight. Oh, what a butterfly!

Passing Beauty

Where do old beauty contest winners go? To their national film industries? For now, India’s Manushi Chhillar, winner of the 2017 Miss World  had that une­nviable task at hand: look pleased to crown the new winner, Mexico’s Vanessa Ponce de Leon.

This Too Happened

In the news for allegedly suffering racist abuse during the defeat to Chelsea, Manchester City and English winger Raheem Sterling took to Instagram to show the stark difference in tabloid coverage when two City players, Phil Foden and Tosin Adarabioyo, bought houses for their moms, saying it ‘fuels racism’.

  • When the biggest of the biggies blow their trumpet, Bollywood stands in attendance. At the pre-wedding festivities of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal (Bottom Right) in Udai­pur, Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman willingly colluded in a happy dance. Earlier, pop princess Beyonce (Bottom Left), generously tiara-ed and earringed, had lit up the sangeet festivities.
  • You’d believe if  someone told you this was a frieze, frozen in time, of a particularly opulent celebration. That painterly quality of Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas’s sangeet at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan owes much to the rich raiments of the bride, soon-to-be-wed Isha Ambani and Parineeti Chopra. National, international art­istes performed, Bollywood numbers thumped about and the light reflected from the assembled jewellery blinded many a man.
  • When he’s not driving expensive cars, Salman Khan enjoys a bit of bicycling too. Brand ambassador of breathtakingly scenic Arunachal Pradesh, he put on his cycling shoes (and a handsome Monpa jacket) for promoting the Mechuka Adventure Festival. Flanking him are Arunachal CM Pema Khandu (left) and MoS Kiren Rijiju.
  • The couple, warmed by wedding happiness, cooled by the temperate north Italian sun, have arrived in India; long live the party! Bollywood- loving types drooled over the strictly portioned photos; hope Deepika-Ranveer will let common photographers take a few at their Bangalore rec­eption to grace local albums too.
