Kings Of The Parties

Even though the game was lost (a T20 against the Kiwis), November 5 was to go down as capt­­ain-­bla­ster Kohli’s 29th birthday in the dressing room. That fiery stare and frantic pacing were dissolved thus, in the smear and blanch of fresh cream. But before that, on November 2, was Shahrukh’s birthday, traditionally celebrated by delirious fans before his Ban­dra house—some making the pilgrimage from across India. Impossible as it may seem, he turned 52.

How Things Work Here

Before he was recently outed as the head creep in Hollywoodland, Harvey Weinstein was just a topmost dog in the movie business. Here, on the sets of her dir­ectorial debut Main Hoon Na (2004), Farah Khan gives “Bollywood gyaan”, as she put it recently, to Harvey.

Climbing Up

The very pretty Aahana Kumra feels that, after her gusty, acclaimed performance in Lipstick Under My Burkha, she has to go forth and expl­ore other interesting roles, cha­­r­­a­­cters with identities of their own. To emphasise that point, or to just show us her sense of fun, she also posed thus for us.

Our Mary, Extraordinary

The gathering years haven’t slowed her punches, nor have they shrunk the circles she weaves around her opponents. Five years after her Olympic bronze, M.C. Mary Kom, now 34, has won her fifth gold ever at the Asian championships in Ho Chi Minh City. In 48 kg, she’s queen.

Inner’s The Outer Limit

Diamonds, sapphires, topaz...many a beauty’s heart has stopped down the ages at the tiaras, necklaces, earrings and bracelets studded with these pricey rocks. Now they will be put to (wasteful, if you ask us) use on the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, fashioned by Victoria’s Secret. Underneath is said article, as worn by model Lais Ribeiro.

This Too Happened

After a picture agency apparently tried to sell off pictures of her, with at least one of them in the nude, the mysteriously private Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler took to Twitter to post the picture with an upbeat caption for her fans: “Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!”

  • 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.
