And The Two Rode In

The crafty Zaheer Khan mentored Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the art of fast bowling. They got hitched on the same day. Zaheer’s court marriage with Sagarika Ghatge in Mumbai was a first step in a three-tier celebration. Bhuvi, fresh from a great performance, and seen here at his baraat in Meerut, was married to Nupur Nagar. May the speedmen be happy!

More Sweets For Father

As many worthy men have noted, with their steely stares softening, dadship is the best feeling of them all. Flanked by snugly fitting daughter Iqra and the rakishly jacketed Shahraan, San­jay Dutt is clearly in a zone he’ll never ever reli­nquish. As parent, too, Sanjay is a hulking bear of a dad, pretty much a softie. Yeah, he spoils them, but doesn’t get into the way when Manyaata shows the occ­asional iron fist. That’s good parenting.

Lotus Beater

North India might be kicking up a lot of fuss over the depiction of a medieval queen in what is ess­­­­entially a Bolly­woodian excuse for an extravaganza, but the leading lady at the centre of it, the inimitable Dee­pika Padukone, is going about her pro­selytising work dil­igently. At a dance contest, the diva, in a golden sari, shook legs with Shi­­lpa She­tty, all the while plugging Padmavati. Nice work. 

Just Chill For Change

Tasteless puns on that platform of impulse, Twitter, made by a politician who’s fast becoming an expert, notwithstanding, this is the bri­­g­h­­test face that swept all at Miss World. Newly crowned Manushi Chhillar refused to take the spoiler, too. Her nonchalant advice: just chill.  

Net Gain: $22 Million in 22 years

For 15 years, the undimmable Gisele Bundchen had clattered on the world’s ramps to be the world’s highest earning supermodel. Her castle has  finally fallen—22-year-old Kendall Jenner instagrammed, reality acted and catwalked her way to the top spot. Her feathers have a new cap.

This Too Happened

Arrested in 1969 for his part in the Tate-LaBianca murders, serial killer Charles Manson died aged 83 in confinement. The man whose name had almost become synonymous with mass murders and who was handed nine consecutive death sentences had been plagued by intestinal bleeding since January.

  • Italy, all of a sudden, has overtaken Provence, Switzerland and grand European chateaus as the destination for celebrity Indian weddings. Preparations were afoot at the Villa del Balbianello on the impossibly picturesque Lake Como for the nuptials of Deepika and Ranveer, a duo who looks no less handsome than the fancy environs of their grand day on November 14 and 15. We hope Como lives up to their dreams.
  • Shillong-based Big-Ri (left) is a sharp card, a founder of hip-hop group Khasi Bloodz. Meba Ofilia’s style—note the robust armbands—is also steeped in hip-hop and R&B. The music they make together, like the edgily rusty Ambassador they choose as a prop, takes you unawares. The duo won the Best India Act for Done Talking at the 2018 Europe Music Awards, held in Barakaldo, Spain.
  • It’s curious that Sachin should be made ambassador for UNICEF’s ‘hand washing initiative’ and packed off to roofy Bhutan. But, ever the sportsman, he’s taken it in a batsman’s stride. The beneficiary is Bhutan’s national cricket team, and this lanky, teenaged batter.
  • Haute, they have always bel­ie­ved, is a seven-hued thing, and the cause of the LGBTQ has alw­ays been dear to the fashion fraternity. A parliament of forty designers conjured up the ‘Rain­bow’ show to celebrate the rec­ent junking of Article 377. Red mascara and blue-glittered coi­­ffure caught the eye; so did a message of love across a bare back.
