Fixed Match, Smash Hit

Even sceptics of marriages made in heaven see a grand design in the union of IPL chief Rajiv Shukla’s nephew Abhinav with T-series’s Aashima Kumar. The momentousness blinds us to Kajol’s toga. Ahhhh fine, we admit to wilful blindness.

Down The Peking Order

‘He isn’t either a Shih Tzu or a Pekingese, Akki’ Farzana Contractor seems to say. ‘He’s a Lhasa Apso.’ An honest mistake that. So Khiladi man needn’t look so chastised. Mollification was to be found at the UpperCrust Food Show ’12 spread. ‘Haanji, lots of Chinese fare on the menu.’

That Last Article Of Faith

Let’s see here. Everyone’s got their keshes and their kirpans. We have spotted a kadha or two. And we’ll take them at their word on the kangas and kachehras. All that’s missing at Amritsar’s International Turban Pride 2012 Show are the Kaurs.

Got Milk For Those Cookies?

After that Playboy call-up, Sherlyn Chopra knew a bar had been set. Shedding clothes needed to be tasteful now. Bring Xmas cheer to street kids? That would show Santa she’d been ‘an awful good girl’. If he ain’t hurrying down that chimney yet, we’ll help fill her stockings.

  • Malaysia still has sult­ans, did you know, and they remain mighty rich too. The  elegan­tly dressed, exp­e­ns­ive-looking cou­­ple are Princess Tunku Tun Aminah, daughter of the Sultan of Johor and her Dutch football executive beau, Dennis. The occasion was their royal wedding, solemnised acc­ording to Muslim Malay tradition and opulent family custom.
  • This has to be one of tennis’s strangest communions—two abs­olute legends, once rich like princes, now reduced, by bankruptcy and misfortune, to being stone broke. Yet the old spirit fights back, for Becker and Borg met at Ibiza. Smiling along are Becker’s wife Lilly (with Bjorn) and the Swede’s wife and son.
  • Donald Trump obviously has a thing for sup­er­models—before Melania there was Ivana (who served a long sentence, from 1977-92). Here’s Mallika Sherawat, a collector of selfies with famous Ame­­r­­ic­­ans, schm­oozing with Ivana.
  • When some in the Wem­bley audience booed A.R. Rahman for singing in Tamil, Lata Man­­g­eshkar step­ped in, slamming the ‘int­­­ol­­er­ance’, then pro­udly recalling her bilingual hits with Salil Chaudhury and Hemant Kumar, as well as her regional classics.
