Two Champs To Tango

He slew Nadal en route to the trophy; she tamed a rampaging Serena in the title clash. Sure, Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber have won themselves a right to have a ball at the Wimbledon Championship dinner.  The win is significant for both—Kerber was the first German woman to win in 22 years (Ah! Memories of Steffi!); for the Djoker, it’s vindication that he can beat everyone after two injury-hit years.

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My...

Salman’s bro-hood with Kamalahaasan began in 2013, when the latter’s Vishwaroop ran into trouble, and Salman had pitched strongly for it. Now that Vishwaroop 2 is com­ing up, where else can Kamal go for maximum traction but to the sets of Dus Ka Dum, where the two dapper men added to their chemistry. A glad Kamal tweeted: “Bhai ho to aisa.”

Riding, Running, Plunging

As her compatriots back in Delhi share notes on their latest fashion buys, Anju Khosla, 52, has punched through one of the toughest sports in the world—the dreaded Ionman Triathlon in Carinthia, Austria. Swimming (3.86 km), cycling (180 km) and marathon (42 km) form an awesome ordeal, but it’s the mental frontier that Anju has conquered.

More Workouts Per Movie

When fitness is your priority in life, you are lik­ely to seek an excuse for a new, gruelling regimen. Her inclusion in Housefull 4 was the spur Pooja Hegde needed to add to her already vigorous regime. Seriously? Yes, from 4 am!

Through Dark Eyes

If Pooja (above) has been  swinging and bending, Ranveer Singh, who now has an acting reputation to keep up to, has been sedulously pumping iron. This, prepping for his cop’s role in Simmba, with Sara Ali Khan being the recipent of his muscular charm.

Namely, The Issue

With Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, threatening to steam up screens, the SGPC has taken umbrage at her liberal appropriation of the surname, asking her to drop it, lest she ‘hurts sen­­­s­ibilities’. Will Sunny comply?

This Too Happened

Four members of Pussy Riot, a Russian feminist protest punk rock group based in Moscow, have been put behind bars for 15 days for invading the pitch during the France vs Croatia World Cup final. The group, a long-term critic of human rights violations in Russia, claimed responsibility on social media.

  • 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!
