Ton Of Kisses

David Warner’s screaming bat has been pulling Sunrisers Hyderabad along this IPL. But at least some of the myhem is due to the near-constant, dainty presence of daughter Ivy Mae. For her, Daddy’s the man!

A Grab At A Time

It’s a stalemate. Rhea Pillai, profitably divorced from Sanjay Dutt, now wants a queen’s ransom from est­ranged husband Leander Paes—house, money, child’s custody.... But he wouldn’t have any of it. Lawyer-Lee!

Watch Those Rings

As her brother keeps a grim watch over Mumbai’s IPL games, Isha Ambani, Mukesh’s daughter, dazzled in this Christian Dior beige gown at the Met Gala. We may take note of only Priyanka and Deepika, but richie rich Isha is up there in the game of gowns.

An Open Mind Swings Every Way

Kickass gym-going dames don’t only rock to techno beats. Parineeti Chopra felt Meri Pyaari Bindu was her “life story”. That’s our desi girl!

Writing On The Podium

Bookers of the winning feather flock tog­­ether. The bescarved Salman Rushdie and Kiran Desai made a happy stand at the New York Indian Film Festival before heading in to watch the opening film, the sensitively made Lipstick Under My Burkha, which, till rece­ntly, wasn’t cleared by the censor board in India.

The Turn In His Stars

Many said the real star in Lion wasn’t Nicole Kidman or Dev Patel, but brilliant little Sunny Pawar. As if to confirm, he won the Rising Star Award at the Asian Awards in London. Being unfazed at Amy’s glittering presence, shaking mayor Sadiq Khan’s hand...Sunny was tops on the carpet.

This Too Happened

Prince Harry follows the noble tradition of taking his lover to polo. Meghan’s presence at an exclusive polo event could be counted as their first public appearance at an official event as a couple, who has been dating since last year. It is also reported that Meghan has been invited to Pippa Middleton’s wedding. Pippa is said to have made an exception for Meghan to an otherwise strict ‘no ring no bring’ rule. Do we hear engagement bells?

  • 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.
