Prose Run Mads

Two smiles in this pic: one’s wooden, the other plastic. Can you tell the two apart? Tussaud’s clearly could not. A more waney likeness of the lyric to motion that was Madhuri there isn’t. Wax poetry? This is doggerel verse.

The Safety On?

Quite the little pistol, isn’t she? Yes, Paoli Dam is that. Make no misfire, though. This luscious Tollywood number is no mere six-shooter. She’s of a much higher calibre. The smoking gun: Chhatrak, where she shows how full Pray Vikram Bhatt handles her right in Hate Story.

No Minor Celebrity

Yes, we all remember little Latika. The thing is, she—Rubina Ali, that is—has grown up some since Slumdog. Somebody (Danny uncle) had better tell the director of Lord Owen’s Lady—her next outing, starring Anthony Hopkins. A £21,000 take at 13. Nothing to sneeze at.

Final Furlong? Here Are The Reins

Amid the rancorous hoofbeats, some thoroughbred footfalls. The Wadias—that’s Maureen, flanked by sons Jeh (left) and Ness—stirr(upp)ed Mahalaxmi Race Course during the C.N. Wadia Gold Cup.

  • Though the Russians presented a united front of splendrous symmetry, winning golds in synchronised swimming at the FINA world championships at Gwangju, S. Korea, we only have eyes for the Italians, caught here in the glistening throes of a cascading collapse, arms linked and eyes cocked. Olgas and Tatianas hit the podium; Giulias and Francescas smacked us hard in the solar plexus.
  • 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 The  name, thankfully, stands withdrawn.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!
