Still A Lot To Say

Shillong-based Big-Ri (left) is a sharp card, a founder of hip-hop group Khasi Bloodz. Meba Ofilia’s style—note the robust armbands—is also steeped in hip-hop and R&B. The music they make together, like the edgily rusty Ambassador they choose as a prop, takes you unawares. The duo won the Best India Act for Done Talking at the 2018 Europe Music Awards, held in Barakaldo, Spain.

Treat Her Nice

Namaste England, the film was to be called, and its (possibly) oafish director thought a corny desi name gave him the lic­ence to misbehave with a beautiful  ingenue by  promising her a lead role in it. Iranian actor Elnaaz Norouzi’s pained allegations scorched the front pages of a tabloid in shame. Till the charges are acted upon, we stand by the petite Sacred Games star.

Stars Only Hit ’Em Straight

Not that ‘Supershtar’ needs advance publicity for his films like other mortals, but a boxer’s pose with the inimitable Mary Kom in Chennai can only bring Rajnikanth luck. In case you have forgotten, 2.0 is out later this month. Mind it!

He Knows Zero Is A Number Too

As if to emphasise the shape that’s inevitably summoned up by the mere mention of his next film’s name, Shahrukh tucked in golgappas in Mumbai on his birthday. But Zero—about a vertically challenged man—has now fallen afoul of some Sikhs, who think the film disrespects the kirpan. We hope they would forgive old SRK.

Hey, Sweet Paparazzo!

Now this is dramatic! Italy’s deputy PM Matteo Salvini, member of the anti-imm­igrant Northern League, was on a flight to Ghana when girlfriend Elisa Isoardi, TV star, dumped him with this happy, tender reminder. Not with anger, mind you, but a gentle whisper of what more was in store.

In Case You’ve Forgotten Her, Boys

J-Lo, jello, jelly...what are the first things that pop in your mind when you see this intolerably shiny smock blinding your eyes? Posing for InStyle  magazine, Jennifer refashioned a Valentino cape so that her ample proportions spill out. She doesn’t intend to inspire women with this, she says. The other half then, surely.

This Too Happened

The centuries-long mystery of how the Egyptian pyramids may have been erected may at last be solved after a group of archaeologists stumbled upon an ancient quarry. The presence of a ramp with stairways and postholes suggest that the pyramids may have come up faster than earlier expected.
