With Mallika Sherawat’s hype brigade going all out to promote her ‘sizzling’ item number Jalebi Bai in forthcoming Bolly (for a change) flick Double Dhamal, it wouldn’t be any great surprise to see legions of hoodwinked youths throng ticket stalls. The hoopla over her real-life jalebi-frying is one such ominous portent.

One Horse Race

After an eminently forgettable showing at Cannes, Aishwarya sought to make the most of her French getaway by taking in a race or two. Brand Ash couldn’t afford any more faux pas—especially during the prestigious Prix de Diane Longines in Chantilly. So, did it trip or did it trot?

Banking On Andalucia

If it could be said that the sole saving grace in Kites was its infusion of Latin sound, then Hrithik will come off looking like a genius for re-engaging with the genre for the fun song Senorita in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. If not, he’s going to look like a dunce. Time will tell.

A Master’s Last Muse

Perhaps the highest praise for Anushka Sharma’s acting chops came from M.F. Husain, who found her performance in Band Baja Baraat so nuanced and inspiring that he supposedly didn’t require the use of his glasses to watch her. So smitten was the maestro with Anushka that he saw the movie eight times and had sought to paint her.

  • She takes after her mother in so many ways: the shape of her  face, that smile, the way her hair  tumbles back. He, as you all can see, is an image of his dad (has he inh­erited that two-generation-old dimple?) Saif and Amrita Singh’s children Sara and Ibrahim Ali Khan are holidaying in England. This casual, happy chat over some Earl Grey does confirm what they say—the siblings are inseparable.
  • It’s bad enough to earn millions while having a talent for nothing exc­ept indecently hogging attention; it’s worse to lay claim to a venerable tradition in service to one’s base business ins­tinct. But what do you expect from Kim Kardashian, who had the audacity to name her upcoming shapewear line (to be worn inside) ‘Kimono’. While you condemn her for the usual  self-centredness (as millions did), laud her for knowing something  about a place as further afield as Japan. The  name, thankfully, stands withdrawn.
  • Though the Trinamool cut a sorry figure, then took its rev­erses badly, our favourite MPs from Bengal—close pals  and actresses Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan, were unt­ouched by the sour petulance. Fresh from Nusrat’s wedding in Turkey, and so absent when other MPs took their oaths in Parliament, the duo did the needful later, not forgetting to use ‘Jai Bangla’. Didi is happy; can’t say we aren’t, too!
  • Blink, and you’ll travel back to the glory days of disco, with Cardi B’s multi-­coloured jumpsuit transporting you effortlessly. But, disaster struck at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Man­chester, when this splendid  garment gave way along its nether seams, hurrying poor Cardi  offstage.  The singer arrived minutes later in a bathrobe, the picture of unfl­a­ppability. “We gonna keep it sexy,”  she crooned. That is style.
