Yes, He’s That Old

Donald Trump obviously has a thing for sup­er­models—before Melania there was Ivana (who served a long sentence, from 1977-92). Here’s Mallika Sherawat, a collector of selfies with famous Ame­­r­­ic­­ans, schm­oozing with Ivana.

Only Deep Draws

You’d have thought that those horrible dances in Telugu films came from faulty aesthetics. Now, it seems the place is awash with drugs, with many stars suspected to be suppliers! Among those under the scanner is the comely Cha­rmi, whose name the SIT allegedly found in a smuggler’s phone.

Let Chitra Run

Her parents are daily wagers, and she has had to work out of her skin to make it big in athletics, winning the 1,500 metres at the Asian Athle­tics meet this month. Yet, Chitra P.U. was denied a berth at the Lon­don World Champions­hips, leaving the 22-year-old from Kerala heartbroken. The Athletics Federation’s reason? Performance not up to scratch. That’s as opaque as can be.

Eye On The Future

Silver-smeared tennis shoes and a stockinged tennis shorts made an inspiring appearance at Sania Mirza’s tennis academy near Hyderabad. Along with actress Neha Dhupia and WTA officials, the six-time Grand Slam winner played along with 30 local junior players from the Freedom Again Foundation. Say, isn’t she looking fit!

She Says She Doesn’t Smoke

The sun carved shadows on Kendall Jenner’s  prone form, laid on cold stone, under a chandeliered bough, much like how a supermodel, her eyes drowsy with lazy wonderment, would like to be cast on Instagram. But those fingers seem to nestle a cigarette and that’s spoilt it for many. But doesn’t it intensify the thrum of a hot afternoon?

Solving The Completeness Theorem

Since the moment Sunny has set foot in India, she has been hounded for her former profession, but has handled the leering morons with consummate dignity. Now, she and husband Daniel Weber have adopted a baby girl, Nisha, from Latur. Theirs will be a happy family.

This Too Happened

Mac Miller speaks for us when he says that oversharing, especially during Game Of Thrones, is a bad move. Miller had his experience ruined thanks to bloggers who gave away spoilers within seconds after it aired. “You gotta stop live tweeting Game Of Thrones. It’s just not morally responsible,” tweeted Miller.

  • Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla started designing trousseaus fit for a princess for the catwalk when designers weren’t famous in their own right. Thi­rty-three years on, they are well-known now, and celebrated with a show in Mumbai, They dressed up the reliably gorgeous Deepika in this intricately woven, ivory-embellished lehenga. At the end of the walk, she broke into a jig. For joy, certainly. But, given an inch, Bollywood will out!
  • With every conceivable sporting activity speedily shuffled up into a corporatised league for maximum milking, it’s unsurprising that the annual boat race on the Punnamada lake inaugurated the Cha­mpions Boat League. Sachin, outrigged by Kathakali dancers, spoke of Kerala’s resilience in the face of floods and its passion for cricket.
  • For all his Bhangra moves, Justin Trudeau had a diplomatically disastrous tour of India, but the boyishly handsome Canadian premier  rem­ains a darling of the masses, especially swooning womenfolk. It was no surprise then that at an informal gaggle of world leaders at the G7 summit, Melania turned to  him for a peck, as the weight of the world kept the scowl fixed on Donald’s face. As a Twitter wag put it: “Find someone who looks at you like  Melania looks at Trudeau.”
  • Our nationalist cine workers associations have passed a diktat—anyone who dares to perform in Pakistan will be ostr­acised henceforth. Poor Mika Singh peddled his fare at a Pakistani wedding and was, consequently, banned from performing in India. Our steadfast protectors didn’t stop at this—Mika is in Salman’s entourage for a US tour, so they have theatened the superstar with a shut-out too if.... Appeal to our dearest Bhai: flex those muscles, do, and call these cowards out.
