Grin And Keep In Step

Going by the gossip pages, all Priyanka does is shoot for Quantico, get drooled over by Hollywood at glamorous dos and take sunny holidays. As tourism ambassador of scenic Assam, she had no less fun at Jorhat. At a girls high school, Priyanka joined in with students for a spot of Bihu. And she doesn’t look the snooty fashionista too.

The Largest Throw-In

Stadiums lit up at night and thronged by multitudes...in Ker­ala, they have a passion for sevens football, and African players are a staple. Sudani from Nigeria, a Malayalam film hea­­­­­­ded for Cannes, throws the spotlight on it. Here, director Zakaria Mohammed is seen with actor Samuel Robinson.

In The Summer Awards Season

If you think Farida Jalal only did matronly supporting roles, watch her making eyes in Aradhana. The veteran of over 200 films was honoured by the Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Awards. Keeping her company is Manisha Koirala, a heart-throb as ever.

A Chemical To Transform

Once they thought there was a danger that Virat Kohli might let his on-fi­eld intensity dominate him. No such fear now. Though RCB loses match after match, the skipper is as cool as ever. This Insta­gram photo, showing him feeding Anushka a piece of her birthday cake, proves the point.

Colour Blizzard In His Young Head

We know of musicians, writers, mathematicians being boy geniuses. Somehow, painting seemed immune to prodigies. Advait Kolarkar, 4 (!), breaks the mould. His canvases, inspired by galaxies, dinosaurs and dragons merited a solo exhibition in his hometown, New Brunswick, in Canada, and then was displayed at the ArtExpo in New York. And no, he’s no Vin­cent in the garret. Advait is already selling his stuff for thousands of dollars.

Out Of Her Coma

Banita Sandhu grew up in Wales on a diet of Shahrukh and Aishwarya. How she got spotted and was cast by Shoojit Sircar in October we don’t care about. What matters though is her Lily-white freshness in the face of the blinding arclights of Bolly­wood that sweetened many a soft drink in cinemas. Other than expre­ssing sincerity, Banita says she would like to work with Aamir, Irrfan and Alia.

This Too Happened

Actor Ashley Judd has filed charges of defamation and sexual harassment against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Judd, who was one of the first to speak out during the #MeToo movement, says Weinstein was the reason she lost a part in the Lord of the Rings after earlier refusing his advances.

  • Though the Russians presented a united front of splendrous symmetry, winning golds in synchronised swimming at the FINA world championships at Gwangju, S. Korea, we only have eyes for the Italians, caught here in the glistening throes of a cascading collapse, arms linked and eyes cocked. Olgas and Tatianas hit the podium; Giulias and Francescas smacked us hard in the solar plexus.
  • She takes after her mother in so many ways: the shape of her  face, that smile, the way her hair  tumbles back. He, as you all can see, is an image of his dad (has he inh­erited that two-generation-old dimple?) Saif and Amrita Singh’s children Sara and Ibrahim Ali Khan are holidaying in England. This casual, happy chat over some Earl Grey does confirm what they say—the siblings are inseparable.
  • It’s bad enough to earn millions while having a talent for nothing exc­ept indecently hogging attention; it’s worse to lay claim to a venerable tradition in service to one’s base business ins­tinct. But what do you expect from Kim Kardashian, who had the audacity to name her upcoming shapewear line (to be worn inside) ‘Kimono’. While you condemn her for the usual  self-centredness (as millions did), laud her for knowing something  about a place as further afield as Japan. The  name, thankfully, stands withdrawn.
  • Though the Trinamool cut a sorry figure, then took its rev­erses badly, our favourite MPs from Bengal—close pals  and actresses Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan, were unt­ouched by the sour petulance. Fresh from Nusrat’s wedding in Turkey, and so absent when other MPs took their oaths in Parliament, the duo did the needful later, not forgetting to use ‘Jai Bangla’. Didi is happy; can’t say we aren’t, too!
