A 100-metre Dash In Madrid

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.

Life Takes Turns Like That

How do the rich & famous feel when they revisit and retread the hau­­nts of their younger years, when the mind was light and unb­ur­de­ned without experience and pockets were lighter? Akshay, who’s sho­­oting for Sooryavanshi in Bangkok, keenly recalled his days as a food delivery boy in the Thai capital. Still rides a bike to earn his living, does Akshay.

Add A Dash Of Spirituality

The trickster fakir complete with a snakily levi­ta­­ting rope had been a Western trope of India for generations. Old generalisations die hard, for Dha­nush’s first international film, The Extra­ord­inary Journey of the Fakir, puts one such warm-hearted ‘swindler’ in Paris, extracts com­edy and pokes at immigration too. That’s how it goes. Still.

Too High A Lift?

Halfway through his car­eer, Virat is already the greatest ODI batsman ever, per­iod. As Madame Tussauds mul­led about celebrating the World Cup, only one name would have recommended itself. Their creation, duly propped up at Lord’s, plays a nothing shot though. Don’t like the cover drive, ladies?

Don’t Blink

The song in Bharat, her latest, urges us to watch her Slow Motion Mein, playing a trapeze artist. If your heart is in danger of doing a trampolene leap just looking at her sandswept, snowstormed, total glamour, stay away. 

This Too Happened

Forbes has called Jay-Z the first billionaire rapper. The magazine has estimated Shawn Carter’s wealth at just about $1 billion, with his biggest asset being the $310m ownership of Armand de Brignac champagne. How appropriate for someone who sings about rags to bling-laden excess!

  • Blink, and you’ll travel back to the glory days of disco, with Cardi B’s multi-­coloured jumpsuit transporting you effortlessly. But, disaster struck at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Man­chester, when this splendid  garment gave way along its nether seams, hurrying poor Cardi  offstage.  The singer arrived minutes later in a bathrobe, the picture of unfl­a­ppability. “We gonna keep it sexy,”  she crooned. That is style.
  • 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.

  • 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.
