Arrival Of The Queen

The successive stages of the making of Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika has been greedily recounted, so the release of the trailer came on its downward crest. But it’s not only Kangana’s proud Laxmibai with her bevy of attendants, there are Tatya Tope and Bajirao II to contend with too.

Space Shuttlers

There we go again...this curious wedding phenomenon whereby comely people look stunningly gorgeous on their special night. Would you put it down to Saina’s elegant lehenga and exquisite jewellery and  Parupalli Kash­yap’s colour-matched sherwani? Nope, it’s just the sense of occasion, something they excel at.

Beauties, Sadly, Go Too

If we Indians think that, other than Venezuela and Colombia, our girls are top cats at Miss Universe, we’re wrong. The Philippines has four crowns now, the latest being Catriona Gray, here being cro­wned by 2017 queen Demi-Leigh Nel Peters (you admiring her still?). Miss Spain Angela Ponce, the first transgender contestant, failed to break into the top 20.

In The ‘Bravest Battle’

Give fulsome credit to make-up artistes, if you marvel at how authentically  period-­Punjabi Parineeti and Akshay look in this still from Kesari. We imagine the duo would cavort around the central theme: the Battle of Saragarhi in 1897, when 21 Sikh soldiers fought off 10,000 Afghan invaders.

Tie Them Down

He paid for the shoes so he tied the laces too! Ha, so we paraphrase an Instagram post by Sakshi Dhoni, adm­iring the wrists that bowlers fear perform a prosaic job. The piece, of course, is adm­irable because of Ms Dhoni herself, effortlessly chic in a skirt and a top, a cooler persona than the one we see cheering in IPL matches.

In Her Sacred Space

Turn right and look at Harshita Gaur, hinting at her ample charms in mildly faded denim. Unsurprisingly, small-town fabric was ruffled by her in the web series Mirzapur. That’s how Har­­­­sh­ita is operating these days—next to fall for her was Mumbai, for that’s where you’ll find her next, in Sacred Games 2. Bollywood, beware!

This Too Happened

Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush has denied claims that he behaved inappropriately with Orange is the New Black star Yael Stone in a theatre production eight years ago. An article in 2015 had also pointed a finger at the 67-year-old Australian, where Stone said his attention was “unwanted and sustained”.
