82 Boulevard de Clichy, Please

An evening in Paris is kinda incomplete without appreciating up-close those high-kicking cancan dancers in flesh-exposing ostrich feather costumes at Moulin Rouge. It’s a touristy tradition of 130 years, a milestone the cabaret reached this aut­umn. Enjoy the choreography and quaff your way through a bottle of champagne.

B’wood Beach Bummer

Even a hot-bod needs a sun-soaked Maldives getaway to let the steam out after those steamy swirls and twirls in Made in China, Mouni Roy’s yet-to-open eye-popper. The lady in pink sure knows a thing about vacay dresses and poses.

Nine Nights of the Goddess

The Durga Puja pandal is a smorgasbord of happiness, and piety. You can’t fake it. Like the joy in Rani Mukerji and Karan Johar’s sindoor-smeared faces; like the devoutness in Mr and Mrs Bachchan’s eyes; like the jig Nusrat Jahan did to hubby Nikhil Jain’s drumrolls—in a crimson sari, vermillion on her forehead and hair neatly tied in a bun. The svelte Bengali actor-MP’s dhak dance is her first as a married woman.

That Edgy Sense Of…

Does the billycock fit my crown? Be honest, I can see you through these dark glasses and the brass globe on my walking stick is a shiny virgin ready for its whack hunt. Umm, get bemused Bebo, lovely as ever, a pair of lorgnettes to tackle Takht co-star Ranveer—their first together.

Trolls, Get a Mirror

She is a cut above the rest—Janhvi, 22, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s darling daughter. She channelled her inner seductress in a gown with a thigh-high slit and plunging neckline at an awards. And trolls screamed risqué. They’re a cut too low.

This Too Happened

Women in Iran will enter football stadiums, finally. FIFA warned Tehran of suspension if it doesn’t lift the ban on women in the audience of men’s football matches. Already, 3,500 women have bought tickets for Iran’s 2022 World Cup qualifier against Cambodia. But men and women will be seated seperately.

  • As a snarling Dirty Harry teases out criminals in LA; as Frank Serpico goes und­ercover in New York, Chulbul Pandey does age-old, comic acrobatics to hurt ‘baddies’, then giggles around his lady love. Flogging the same masala, here comes the trailer of Dabangg 3, at the launch of which Salman points at the same direction, while Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar prepare to follow the leader with loving attention.
  • What do they actually do in Bigg Boss—that synthetic morass of shape-­shifting loyalties, gro­up­­ings and couplings by people clinging on to the skirts of fame, dragg­ing along an endless stream of stragglers agape before their boxes? At least Boman Irani, Rajkummar Rao and Mouni are doing something specific—horsing around joyfully, canvassing for their film Made in China. Major domo Sal­man, of  course, is there at every step, falling in and out with practised difficulty.
  • If you’d like to stitch together a Hollywood dream team, it has to have Marty, Bob and Sonny. The BFI London film festival saved its hushed breath for The Irishman—a gangster drama by the man who helped define the genre in Goodfellas and The Departed. Yet, in this autumnal light, Frank (De Niro) and Jimmy (Al Pacino) are just not snarling desperados, six-shooters at the ready. Time is also spent on sombre reflection—old reg­rets, moral reckonings and the one important thing that finally matters: mortality.
