Talking Of Michelangelo

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!

Take Three

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.

A Full Score Life

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.

The Same Cloth

“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!

Not Like A Father

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.

Say, Star

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.

This Too Happened

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.

  • 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!
  • Blink, and you’ll travel back to the glory days of disco, with Cardi B’s multi-­coloured jumpsuit transporting you effortlessly. But, disaster struck at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Man­chester, when this splendid  garment gave way along its nether seams, hurrying poor Cardi  offstage.  The singer arrived minutes later in a bathrobe, the picture of unfl­a­ppability. “We gonna keep it sexy,”  she crooned. That is style.
