OUTLOOK Monday 22 February, 2016
A Study In Scarlet

Katrina Kaif struck an arresting figure in a dark red jumpsuit at the Janpath market the other day. She’s in Delhi for the promotion of her upcoming film Fitoor, and decided to add to the fan craze by stepping out with her co-star Aditya Roy Kapur. Rumour is that she bought him a scarf from the market.

Ready and Steady

Ravindra Jadeja and Rivaba Solanki look blissed out for good reason. They got engaged a week back at Jadeja’s own restaurant, Jaddus Food Field. Fanfare and high-profile invitations aside, the best moment was when Rivaba was hailed as Lady Luck for the cricketer’s career. Meanwhile, Irfan Pathan did it traditionally and wedded Safa in Mecca. Love is clearly in the air this February!

Head Held High

Virat Kohli may be spattering Instagram with his emo antics (a ‘heartbroken’ selfie? really?) but Anushka is silent and so far only tweeted about her intense routine for Sultan. Now that’s classy!

Out of the Cage and Dangerous

Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut is suddenly the talk of town. And you can’t blame us—the first look of The Return of Xander Cage is absolutely awesome. Both Deepika and her ­co-star Vin Diesel look like they are in top form and ready to kick some serious ass.

This Too Happened

A Sharp TURN : After 15 years on BBC Breakfast, Bill Turnbull is set to step down. The 60-year-old is excited about the exit and says he won’t miss the 3:34 am starts. Turnbull­­ bids goodbye to the red sofa and the gruelling mo rning routine on the 26th of February.  He promises there will be no tears on the last day; if any, he hopes they are not his.

  • As a snarling Dirty Harry teases out criminals in LA; as Frank Serpico goes und­ercover in New York, Chulbul Pandey does age-old, comic acrobatics to hurt ‘baddies’, then giggles around his lady love. Flogging the same masala, here comes the trailer of Dabangg 3, at the launch of which Salman points at the same direction, while Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar prepare to follow the leader with loving attention.
  • What do they actually do in Bigg Boss—that synthetic morass of shape-­shifting loyalties, gro­up­­ings and couplings by people clinging on to the skirts of fame, dragg­ing along an endless stream of stragglers agape before their boxes? At least Boman Irani, Rajkummar Rao and Mouni are doing something specific—horsing around joyfully, canvassing for their film Made in China. Major domo Sal­man, of  course, is there at every step, falling in and out with practised difficulty.
  • 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
