The sky is a contrast of breezy azure and an angry, roiling mass; as hills roll in the background, a giant statue of Lord Shiva raises its granite head. In the foreground washed by light rain, saree wrapped tightly around her, stands Kangana Ranaut. She says time stood still in Coimbatore that day.
Young Ziva, known for long by us as a baby blinking at the glare of cricket matches, has suddenly grown up, though not by so much as not to be dotingly carried by dad Dhoni. Thus they strode into the wedding reception of Praful Patel’s daughter Poorna. And Sakshi? If you draw inspiration from outlandish ’80s filmy apparel, who can sympathise?
Amitabh, Shahrukh, Amir...if you’ve always wondered where Madame Tussauds finds all the space to shove its Bollywood mannequins, drop it.

Here’s more of dafoos news: beautiful actress lets hair down off camera; pestilential waves of trashy trolls channel their inner sexual jealousy into a thick stream of abuse. Pakistani actress Saba Qamar (Hindi Medium) has a refreshing smoke in her dressing room, much like Mahira had had in NY.

If tiny kids are allowed to traipse and skip down runways (as a fave gimmick of designers), raising a shudder of ‘oohs’, a breastfeeding babe in the arms of her ‘model’ mom was a logical next. At the Sports Illustrated Swim search show in Miami, Mara Martin, in a one-shouldered bikini went down thus with her five-month-old, spreading a positive feminine vibe. The headphones? To cancel noise.
