Right. Another line-up of pretty youngsters photographed against another (fancy) brick-wall. The cast of Malang has Kunal Kemmu, Aditya Roy Kapur and the delectable Disha Patani.

Imagine fighting breast cancer, then a full recovery after dispiriting chemo sessions and lumpectomy. Imagine, now, the foe surfacing in your liver and backbone. Another spirited fight, another defeat for the Emperor. Such is the pluck of Indian-origin Malaysian Vaishnavi Poovanedran. Does spirit enhance beauty? Ask that on her Instagram account.
