Dance Like An Egyptian

There’s no reason, we agree, to gaze again at the lovely faces of Ananya and Tara at another promo for Student of the Year 2. But this one is for that lithe, mean, dancing-fighting machine, Tiger Shroff. The man who can kick aside the whole lot of simpering actors is set to reprise his role (“a larger-than-life, shirtless hero”) in the next instalment of Baaghi.

Is That Sunshade Doing Its Work?

You’ve have ogled at the beauteous Kiara Advani cooing with pleasure in Lust Stories; here she wades into an emerald lagoon, sighing in a different sort of ecstasy. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara had just completed shooting their Kabir Singh, a remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, a sad tale of a surgeon going bonkers after his heart is broken.

You Can Carry That Weight

A flashy, impulsive guy he often seems, wearing outrageous clothes and grinning at the camera as if he cannot ever give offence. But here’s another Ranveer Singh, sombre in a quiet bandhgala, reconciled to his husbandly duties as retainer, carrying wife Dee­pika’s silver sandals at her cousin’s wedding. As if they know his mood, they’re leaving him pretty much alone too!

Come Fly With Us

Poor, innocent Air Vistara! After it tweeted a photo of its cabin crew with Maj Gen (retd) G.D. Bakshi—that choleric, jumpy, frothing-at-the-mouth terror of prime time news—it was set upon by those who deplore the general’s comments. A deletion later, Bakshi’s supporters cried foul! Is Vistara outta its daze?

Final Hour

Mentored by Rituparno Ghosh, Raima Sen has evolved into an actress who can ooze an ent­ire lifetime’s bleeding wounds with a pained look of those expressive eyes. And when she did a glamour photoshoot, she didn’t have to pout. Catch her at Asif Kapadia’s web series The Last Hour.

This Too Happened

A paper published in open access journal Nature Communication sought to gauge the impact of climate change monetarily and says that permafrost melting in the Arctic region due to carbon dioxide and methane emissions will cost the world 70 trillion dollars in total.

  • Since the moment we set our eyes on him on that October evening in 2000, that cracklingly clean ‘plock’ of the ball on his bat, with the whistle-fresh swing and follow-­through, marvelled us. It was the same in Yuvraj Singh’s last inter­national inn­ings. Sandwitched within were six miraculous, now-mythical sixes in an over, the no less magical performances in the 2011 World Cup, and a great, big-hearted recovery from illness. You have a great life after retirement, Yuvi.
  • As Liverpool and Tottenham muscled it out in the major kickabout that’s the Champions League final, after Moha­med Salah pumped in a penalty for a 1-0 lead, as bands of Liverpudlians seriously contemplated a conversion to Mo’s creed, she jumped right in. Comfortably sneakered, ash blonde hair aflow, arms raised, her amplitude tucked into an ungenerous swimsuit, she peddled a porn site. Play stopped for a bit, then the spoilsports threw her out.
  • Amidst the mucky filth, smelling of cordite, that is Bengal’s bipartisan politics on the ground, there emerged two flowers empowered to fight the dominant one in Par­li­a­­ment. TMC’s Mimi and Nus­rat, beloved of cameras in this poll season, were sharply dressed as ever on their first day in the House.
  • Black cape, leather footwear, eyepatch and a tiara—say what you will about Madonna’s outfit in the Eurovision in Israel. Or the fact that her Like A Prayer was woefully out of tune. An inn­ocent espousal of peace—two dancers in her troupe, dressed in Israeli and Palestinian flags, and walking arm in arm—has been castigated as an unwarranted pol­itical comment. But politics is life, the beating heart of art.
