The Celeb Parade

The colours of solidarity were never brighter. True, when it comes to a disaster, our celebs are always there to mobilise funds. Aamir Khan is reportedly deeply involved in sending aid to Kutch, the location for his film Lagaan for six months, Sachin and Madhuri have donated the Rs 1 crore they won in kbc to the victims, Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia and Sonal Mansingh are holding special concerts to raise money, a special M.F. Husain painting in the City of Joy fetched Rs 1 lakh, P.C. Sorcar and Govinda have been going around Kolkota and Mumbai, exhorting everyone to donate liberally. And you thought our stars are only content living in their ivory towers! Think again.

  • 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. 82 Boulevard de Clichy, Please
  • Kendall Jenner, Camila Morr­one, Scooter Braun, Kim Kard­ashian, Joan Smalls...that’s a guestlist straight out of a Craigslist of new-world cel­e­­bdom. Except the model and the real-life showgirl, we hadn’t heard of anyone (had you?). They banded together at the wedding ceremony of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin in South Carolina. Don’t it look like they’re on a school trip?
  • His penchant for prancing about in outrageous clothes —the incessant, kitschy peacocking—might irritate you, but the one role tailormade for Ranveer Sinh’s exuberance was Gully Boy. Inspired by street rappers Divine and Naezy, Ranveer, his rapper team and Alia set Dharavi alight with their defiant poe­try. Acclaimed by all, it is now India’s official entry to the Oscars. We need them to break the fourth wall now.
