A picture you seem to have missed: Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi in earnest conversation with former PM Manmohan Singh. Ah, no wonder you’ve never seen this, for Anupam Kher (Singh), Arjun Mathur (Rahul) and Aahana Kumra (Priyanka) promise to be master impersonators of personages much in news. They might as well be, for they’ll be judged and scrutinised!
If recent rumours of a grand falling out between Katrina and Jacqueline are true, they seem to be truly talented actresses, a secret they’ve managed to keep from us. For, the glamorously bemasked (and generously sequinned) duo, along with Sonakshi on a Dabangg tour in the US, look very comfortable with each other. Bhaijaan needn’t worry, he is in good hands.
As a modern purveyor of Indian dance, Uday Shankar was unparallelled. His prodigiously talented wife, danseuse and choreographer Amala Shnkar, turned 100. Her house, in Calcutta, filled up as family gathered around the grand dame, including her daughter, actress-dancer Mamata Shankar. A perfect occasion, then, to screen the path-breaking Kalpana (1948), directed/acted by Uday Shankar and also starring Amala.
“Shahrukh!!!”cried the assorted paparazzi as he stepped out of his car with wife Gauri at a party at the Ambanis’. A few steps nearer, and they were struck dumb at the preternatural likeness between father and son. Aryan Khan can take comfort that it’s a case of life imitating an old Bollywood trope. He could also act in remakes of his dad’s movies!
The youthful Mithun extracted appeal from a lissom roughness that hinted at a softer core. It’s not only unfortunate that his son Mahakshay has nothing of the same, now the boy has been charged by an actress (a former girlfriend) with being an unspeakable cad. Our hearts go out to Mithtunda for having to endure all this.
Okay, she has oomph, but Rebekah, wife of England striker Jamie Vardy, also has the wisdom and character to scoff at OK! mag’s title of ‘Queen of the World Cup Wags’. A role in a galaxy of ten wives and GFs who cheered England as they broke the WC penalty barrier is enough for her.
The North American box office has clocked its highest ever figures in a quarter, between April and June this year. With sequels like Avengers: Infinity War, Jurassic World and Incredibles 2 raking it in, the total stands at $3.3 billion at a time when online streaming is said to be challenging the theatrical experience.
