Keep Movin’ It

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.

Big Match Specialists

What holds true for advertisers goes for Bollywood’s publicity seekers too—nam­ely, with over a billion eyeballs tra­i­ned at the India vs Pakistan, there couldn’t be a bigger platform. Saif Ali Khan chaperoned his young co-star, debutante Alaia Fur­niture­walla at Old Trafford, while the atrociously dre­ssed Ranveer, used his wel­der’s glasses to forge selfies with cricketers former and current.

Break From The Scare

If you doubt a ‘horror comedy’ will act as a div­ersion to the ample talents of Sunny Leone, you should consider her, in the best traditions of horror, as a foil to the bone-chilling suspense. That, along with her using a local UP dialect, will make Koko­kola a perfect draw. For now, learning a language is occupying Sunny full-time. She doesn’t need to work on her acting, see?

To Her Credit

Does the Miss India competition still function as an assembly line for Bollywood hopefuls? It would do to ask rec­ently-crowned Suman Rao, 20, from Mumbai, about her future plans. Modelling and dance are usual pet passions, but as a  CA student, she can well tweak the double entry system!

Kindest Aspect

The latest belle to rap at the doors of Bollywood is actress Shubra Aiyappa, who plies her trade in the south. Look at her, and you wouldn’t take much convincing to believe that she’s a fitness fanatic. Acting, she says with the air of a sav­ant, is not “the kin­dest career”, but delivers “unma­t­c­hed satisfaction”. She’s “honing her craft”, she says. A worthy avocation, we opine.

This Too Happened

Banned former UEFA President Michel Platini was arrested in France after allegations had led to a criminal investigation into FIFA’s decision to have Qatar host the 2022 World Cup. The ex-French captain’s arrest is the first significant move in an investigation which began two years earlier.
