Bang For Money

Well then, if you look like, as well as have a bod like Hrithik, you too, my friend, would see no harm in walking down the ramp at Myntra Fashion Weekend—wristband in place, about to lose his shirt, followed by a merry band of eccentrically, sportily dressed models. See if you can tease out more from this photo, as our film reviewer did while watching Bang Bang.

At one-and-a-half years, it is the right age for a grand debut for a star scion. It was Id-ul-Zuha, and Shahrukh, moved by the festive spirit to give his fans something, shared a picture of his son Abram on Twitter. A favourite toy clutched in each hand, Abram looks at the camera with poise. That's a gift.

This Is Resplendence

For those who live and breathe Durga Puja festivities, indeed, wait the whole year for this total immersion in a whirligig of sounds, smells, tastes and longings, Bijoya Dashami is tinged with the sadness of having to let go. Except for the beauty unlocked by the traditional 'sindoor khela', where married maidens smear vermillion on each other and the goddess at the end of the pujas.

As Actors Prepare

It's not a new film that merits Sonakshi's inclusion this week, but gossip and accompanying whispers that typically confirm it, that force our hand.

  • If you’d like to stitch together a Hollywood dream team, it has to have Marty, Bob and Sonny. The BFI London film festival saved its hushed breath for The Irishman—a gangster drama by the man who helped define the genre in Goodfellas and The Departed. Yet, in this autumnal light, Frank (De Niro) and Jimmy (Al Pacino) are just not snarling desperados, six-shooters at the ready. Time is also spent on sombre reflection—old reg­rets, moral reckonings and the one important thing that finally matters: mortality.
  • An evening in Paris is kinda incomplete without appreciating up-close those high-kicking cancan dancers in flesh-exposing ostrich feather costumes at Moulin Rouge. It’s a touristy tradition of 130 years, a milestone the cabaret reached this aut­umn. Enjoy the choreography and quaff your way through a bottle of champagne. 82 Boulevard de Clichy, Please
  • Kendall Jenner, Camila Morr­one, Scooter Braun, Kim Kard­ashian, Joan Smalls...that’s a guestlist straight out of a Craigslist of new-world cel­e­­bdom. Except the model and the real-life showgirl, we hadn’t heard of anyone (had you?). They banded together at the wedding ceremony of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin in South Carolina. Don’t it look like they’re on a school trip?
  • His penchant for prancing about in outrageous clothes —the incessant, kitschy peacocking—might irritate you, but the one role tailormade for Ranveer Sinh’s exuberance was Gully Boy. Inspired by street rappers Divine and Naezy, Ranveer, his rapper team and Alia set Dharavi alight with their defiant poe­try. Acclaimed by all, it is now India’s official entry to the Oscars. We need them to break the fourth wall now.
