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 there was a couple encased in classiness at the Laureus Sports Awards in Monaco, France, it was wrestler Vinesh Phogat (up for the World Come­back Award, along with Tiger Woods and others) and husband Somvir Rat­­hee. Winner of the Sport for Good gong? Jharkhand-based NGO Yuwa.
  • Whether the world premiere of Gully Boy at the Berlin Film Festival reiterates Bollywood’s hold more than it indicates the Berlinale’s decline is another matter, but the irrepressible Ranveer was in character as his goofy rapper: shockingly meretricious tuxedo, blown-up hair, machine-gunning away to everyone’s delight. Beside him Alia was a soothing balancing act, her silkily trailing train a rival to that of a British princess on her wedding day.
  • Anil Kapoor almost did the Ram Lakhan tapori jig when Slumdog Millionaire won the Oscars—but a lashing from dear wife the night before held back his legs. What stopped him from doing one at the #Slum-dogTenYears event, we don’t know. Perhaps the sobering presence of Gulzar saab and Rahman. Anyway, Jai Ho!
  • Healed is a word we want to hear from anyone with cancer. And Manisha Koirala, 48, has healed. And Healed is what she wrote. She sealed, and signed, it with her melt-the-mountain smile at the JLF.
