Watery Nymphets

Make no mistake here. Moon Moon Sen’s daughters, Riya and Raima Sen, are on the prowl—where else can you have those captivating smiles, the stunning beauty and the panache. And if you still have any doubts, do get a copy of the latest Elle where the sisters get down to the bare facts of the magazine’s Swimsuit Special 2001 collection. You couldn’t have asked for more—two sultry beauties flaunting their bikinis of all shapes and prints, from crochet to vinyl to floral prints.

Aesthetic Sense

Daler Mehndi could only cry hoarse about the “rich sufiyana essence” of his latest album Nabi Buba Nabi but Mumbai’s Raza Academy didn’t see anything beyond semi-nude women dancing to words like Nabi (Prophet), Madina and Ali. In the end, Daler decided to “edit” and redub the song, and rechristen the album Lehriya. Wonder what’s with him that lands him in trouble every now and then? Remember the recent controversy of featuring Sikh children with painted moustaches in a previous album. Watch out Daler paaji!

Ramp Wars

Before the show, the air was rife with all kinds of rumours—will it be Pierce Brosnan or Michael Schumacher who’d walk the ramp for the Rohit Bal-Omega show in Paris, will tennis star Anna Kournikova do the concluding round of the extravaganza? The hype was indeed too much to handle. But at the end, Gudda was the winner—ending Ritu Beri’s monopoly on the Parisian ramps.

The K Factor

The very talented daughter of Jeetendra is now training her eyes on Bollywood. Ekta Kapoor is producing a film titled Kyonki Main Jhooth Nahin Bolta with Govinda and Sushmita. Here’s hoping that the ‘K’ word will prove lucky for the big screen too.

Speed Formula

Good news for all you race enthusiasts. After a string of successes on the Formula 3 circuit, Narain Karthikeyan is now all set to graduate to Formula 1 with a test for Ford Jaguar in mid-June at Silverstone. Surely, “the fastest Indian in the world” couldn’t have asked for a better chance to prove his skills to the other speedsters of motorwold.

Top Spin

Seems like our moviemakers have at last woken up to the idea of cashing in on the mass appeal of cricket in this country. Remember what Sunil Shetty said about Ajay Jadeja’s plunge into Bollywood—he called it a marketing ploy! And now the buzz is that Anil Kumble has said yes to a key role in good friend Rajiv Menon’s latest movie on the real-life relationship between the cricketer and a handicapped boy.

  • She takes after her mother in so many ways: the shape of her  face, that smile, the way her hair  tumbles back. He, as you all can see, is an image of his dad (has he inh­erited that two-generation-old dimple?) Saif and Amrita Singh’s children Sara and Ibrahim Ali Khan are holidaying in England. This casual, happy chat over some Earl Grey does confirm what they say—the siblings are inseparable.
  • It’s bad enough to earn millions while having a talent for nothing exc­ept indecently hogging attention; it’s worse to lay claim to a venerable tradition in service to one’s base business ins­tinct. But what do you expect from Kim Kardashian, who had the audacity to name her upcoming shapewear line (to be worn inside) ‘Kimono’. While you condemn her for the usual  self-centredness (as millions did), laud her for knowing something  about a place as further afield as Japan. The  name, thankfully, stands withdrawn.
  • Though the Trinamool cut a sorry figure, then took its rev­erses badly, our favourite MPs from Bengal—close pals  and actresses Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan, were unt­ouched by the sour petulance. Fresh from Nusrat’s wedding in Turkey, and so absent when other MPs took their oaths in Parliament, the duo did the needful later, not forgetting to use ‘Jai Bangla’. Didi is happy; can’t say we aren’t, too!
  • 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.
