Outlook Laurels

At a sparkling do in Mumbai last week, finance minister Jaswant Singh gave away the Outlook Money Awards 2004. Two financial groups hogged the limelight: HDFC got five awards while ICICI walked away with four. The nation’s oldest bank, SBI, bagged the coveted Outlook Money Hall of Fame award. Seen here (from right) Outlook Group editor-in-chief Vinod Mehta, Jaswant Singh, Outlook Group chairman Rajan Raheja and A.K. Purwar, chairman, SBI.

Engagingly Yours

After the silken VVS, Sehwag of the blazing willow has done it. Last week, the prince of Najafgarh slipped a diamond solitaire on Arti Singh’s finger as the Sehwag khandan watched approvingly. They want Arti to be a “simple Jatni” at home while Sehwag goes about belting bowlers. The auspicious day is April 22 after the Pak tour.

Maharani Ravs

Amidst the grandeur of Udaipur’s Shiv Niwas Palace, Raveena Tandon’s marriage to distributor Anil Thadani was the stuff of fairy tales. As the groom zipped in on a motor boat, the camera crew stood by to roll. The footage will be used for a film later. Octopussy Indified?

Yuvee-Duvee

There is no doubt about the cricketing prowess of Yuvraj Singh, but on home turf, he’s mama’s little prince. Well...in Mumbai recently, he was seen with Mohabbatein starlet Kim Sharma on V-Day. Spinning her web around him, she made sure he didn’t leave her side for the next three days. “Kim is not my girlfriend,” he quips. Does Mom know?

Elsewhere

Can you imagine George Castanza (Jason Alexander) dabbling in the Middle East conflict? The former Seinfeld star has launched a new peace initiative, the One Voice campaign, to seek solutions to the political crisis online. “It’s about emboldening moderates on both sides.”
