Consider It Slippery

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.

Five Hours To Lullaby

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?

Measure Her Thus

Amitabh, Shahrukh, Amir...if you’ve always wondered where Madame Tussauds finds all the space to shove its Bollywood mannequins, drop it. Just know that Deepika’s statue will now join the ‘A-list’—hitherto the preserve of Hollywood stars. The­ first Indian to be admitted there, Deepika certainly deserves recognition in wax.

Blow A Kiss

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. The offending cigarette, her attitude...ever­ything was fired upon by those not fit to stand next to Saba’s white shirt.

We Give You a ‘V’

When the emperor of maladies lays its dire finger upon anyone, it needs a reserve of inner steel and  loving care to stare him down at his court. Irrfan, being treated in London, may have lost some weight, but not his good cheer. Sonali Bendre, who is in New York, has been parrying the adva­nces of ‘Big C’ with the adoring support of her cute son, Ranveer Behl. May victory be theirs.

In Her Way

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.

  • If you’d like to stitch together a Hollywood dream team, it has to have Marty, Bob and Sonny. The BFI London film festival saved its hushed breath for The Irishman—a gangster drama by the man who helped define the genre in Goodfellas and The Departed. Yet, in this autumnal light, Frank (De Niro) and Jimmy (Al Pacino) are just not snarling desperados, six-shooters at the ready. Time is also spent on sombre reflection—old reg­rets, moral reckonings and the one important thing that finally matters: mortality.
  • An evening in Paris is kinda incomplete without appreciating up-close those high-kicking cancan dancers in flesh-exposing ostrich feather costumes at Moulin Rouge. It’s a touristy tradition of 130 years, a milestone the cabaret reached this aut­umn. Enjoy the choreography and quaff your way through a bottle of champagne. 82 Boulevard de Clichy, Please
  • Kendall Jenner, Camila Morr­one, Scooter Braun, Kim Kard­ashian, Joan Smalls...that’s a guestlist straight out of a Craigslist of new-world cel­e­­bdom. Except the model and the real-life showgirl, we hadn’t heard of anyone (had you?). They banded together at the wedding ceremony of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin in South Carolina. Don’t it look like they’re on a school trip?
  • His penchant for prancing about in outrageous clothes —the incessant, kitschy peacocking—might irritate you, but the one role tailormade for Ranveer Sinh’s exuberance was Gully Boy. Inspired by street rappers Divine and Naezy, Ranveer, his rapper team and Alia set Dharavi alight with their defiant poe­try. Acclaimed by all, it is now India’s official entry to the Oscars. We need them to break the fourth wall now.
