For Thumping Fun

Zoya Akhtar—who's grabbing Ranveer Singh, who is flanked by the gorgeous Priyanka, who is hugged by another—thought up a brunch as a promotion for their film Dil Dhadakne Do. It was to be about ‘love, eating and dancing' but an impromptu Ranveer-Anil Kapoor dance to My name is Lakhan was the highlight. Caught the elegant dame in white in the background—hair brushed up, all earrings and shade? Yes, the lassie of the moment, Anushka, is in this one too!

A New Pace Pack

He thinks India ought to have a home-grown coach and has advanced ideas about how to groom fast bowlers. The best left-arm pacer of all time, Wasim Akram is a happy man—and this shot from Calcutta shows the reason. Wife Shaniera Thompson, and their new baby girl.

Pray For Her

In sharp contrast to the desperate fashionistas in New York, the Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai was a picture of propriety personified by no other than our own (haven't we made her so?) Sunny Leone. Apparently, Kuch Kuch Locha Hai needed help. But they were saying even the lord can't do much in the matter.

Almost In Her Skin

Has Givenchy forgotten how to sew clothes? Or is haute couture for the likes of Beyonce (in pic) a game of bare-skin hide and seek with sequins and materials with varying diaphanousness? That's how things were at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's gala ball. If you want to start hating the vacuous narcissism at the heart of high fashion, check out Kim K's unforgettable outrage at the same event.

  • 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!
