Edible Morsels

Blessed are the restaurateurs of Innato, in Tenerife, Spain, where patrons eat off unclothed model-waitresses and waiters while in the buff. Bamboo partitions offer privacy, but they fall away as morsels uncover more, leaving only the final lettuce. The top draw? A slurpy affair with molten chocolate.


Though it’s a no-brainer who you would actually cast—mother or daughter—in a new Bollywood movie, one has to admit that expert advice, excellent make-up, Manish Malhotra creations and mat­ernal love have worked wonders for Janhvi Kapoor. Now for that debut in a Karan Johar film.

Their Pledge Ours

On Women’s Day, it’s this one scourge  we have to combat. Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis’s wife Amruta and daughter Divija flank a young acid att­ack survivor in a show. Take their pledge.

Count Them Out

The human body can’t get more muscled, rippled, bronzed and sculpted than this awesome display at the Women’s Body Building National Championships. The winner was a mother of two, Thingbaijam Sarita of Manipur. Do her kids pull pranks on her?

Peace Be Unto Him

Varanasi has been in the news, but not for Steve Waugh’s poignant service for his friend Stephen.
As per his last wish, the Aussie great immersed his friend’s ashes in the Ganga before Manikarnika Ghat.

The Tides Are High

Alas, to all-round disappointment, Katrina doesn’t dress much like this anymore. But a Facebook photo-­post of hers talks about “rowing against the tide” all her life. They say she was dressed accordingly too.

This Too Happened

After his Twitter battle with Donald Trump over who did a better job of hosting The Apprentice, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 69, has quit the show. The actor-turned-Governor-turned-reality-TV-host had taken over from Trump, who stayed on as executive producer despite being elected president. Striking back at Trump’s talks about the fallen ratings, Arnie said that he loved working with NBC and would love to be part of another show that didn’t have “this baggage”.

  • 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.
