Two Champs To Tango

He slew Nadal en route to the trophy; she tamed a rampaging Serena in the title clash. Sure, Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber have won themselves a right to have a ball at the Wimbledon Championship dinner.  The win is significant for both—Kerber was the first German woman to win in 22 years (Ah! Memories of Steffi!); for the Djoker, it’s vindication that he can beat everyone after two injury-hit years.

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My...

Salman’s bro-hood with Kamalahaasan began in 2013, when the latter’s Vishwaroop ran into trouble, and Salman had pitched strongly for it. Now that Vishwaroop 2 is com­ing up, where else can Kamal go for maximum traction but to the sets of Dus Ka Dum, where the two dapper men added to their chemistry. A glad Kamal tweeted: “Bhai ho to aisa.”

Riding, Running, Plunging

As her compatriots back in Delhi share notes on their latest fashion buys, Anju Khosla, 52, has punched through one of the toughest sports in the world—the dreaded Ionman Triathlon in Carinthia, Austria. Swimming (3.86 km), cycling (180 km) and marathon (42 km) form an awesome ordeal, but it’s the mental frontier that Anju has conquered.

More Workouts Per Movie

When fitness is your priority in life, you are lik­ely to seek an excuse for a new, gruelling regimen. Her inclusion in Housefull 4 was the spur Pooja Hegde needed to add to her already vigorous regime. Seriously? Yes, from 4 am!

Through Dark Eyes

If Pooja (above) has been  swinging and bending, Ranveer Singh, who now has an acting reputation to keep up to, has been sedulously pumping iron. This, prepping for his cop’s role in Simmba, with Sara Ali Khan being the recipent of his muscular charm.

Namely, The Issue

With Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, threatening to steam up screens, the SGPC has taken umbrage at her liberal appropriation of the surname, asking her to drop it, lest she ‘hurts sen­­­s­ibilities’. Will Sunny comply?

This Too Happened

Four members of Pussy Riot, a Russian feminist protest punk rock group based in Moscow, have been put behind bars for 15 days for invading the pitch during the France vs Croatia World Cup final. The group, a long-term critic of human rights violations in Russia, claimed responsibility on social media.

  • Handspring 360 and Tsukuhara 720 are just names that go with the twists, turns, tumbles and landings in the sport with the lowest margin for errors. Then there is the Produnova, a fiendish routine containing a handspring and two somersaults. The only Indian to dare dream of it, then execute it in Rio in 2016, Dipa Karmakar, will be back in action in the Jakarta Asiad after a long injury-­induced break. The death-defying vault, its difficulty level axed recently, is very much on the mat, says Dipa.
  • A picture you seem to have missed: Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi in earnest conversation with former PM Manmohan Singh. Ah, no wonder you’ve never seen this, for Anupam Kher (Singh), Arjun Mathur (Rahul) and Aahana Kumra (Priyanka) promise to be master impersonators of personages much in news. They might as well be, for they’ll be judged and scrutinised!
  • With Russia doing fabulously well at the World Cup, they thronged the stadium in noticeable numbers—from the dowdiest of Dunyashas to the sveltest of Svetlanas. But the one the cameras fell for was tiny-tee’d, blonde Natalya Nemchinova, Russ­ian flags fluttering gaily from outstretched arms. The Kremlin is a fan too!
