Against a pale blue sky, they clap for those who are putting themselves in grave danger in this hour of crisis—Abhishek, Aishwarya, little Aaradhya, other family-members and the patriarch, Amitabh Bachchan. The latter apparently re-tweeted a post on the deleterious effect of state-sponsored clangour on the virus on March 22-an amavasya. Can’t believe your ears? You won’t if you’re a fan, but do investigate and decipher these revealing interstices of unreason. You’ve got time on your hands.

Why, oh why, did it come to this, a grossly, comically unfair humiliation of a bona fide fashionista? A sadsack tunic of dirty, red-speckled mauve with the most hideous of trains you’ll ever train your eye on. At the Paris Fashion Week, they should ban Giambattista Valli for this outrage. Did Aishwarya, longtime L’Oreal girl, have a choice? She certainly has the right to say no!

When the biggest of the biggies blow their trumpet, Bollywood stands in attendance. At the pre-wedding festivities of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal (inset) in Udai­pur, Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman willingly colluded in a happy dance. Earlier, pop princess Beyonce, generously tiara-ed and earringed, had lit up the sangeet festivities.

With wielders of poison-tipped pens poi­sed to stab you for that one fashion faux pas, only the great glamorous pull it off on the Cannes red carpet with com­­posed eclat. That rar­e­fied list must now include Aishwarya Rai, who, in her 17th year on the carpet, carries this peacock-butterfly inspired (rather gaudy, if you ask me) gown as if born in it.

Beneath Aish­wa­rya’s dazzling looks and come-hither Bollywood moves, you’d have noticed a touch of ster­nness. Then, one saw a growing, traditional motherliness take hold of her once Aaradhya was born and entered girlhood. Here the glitter of her white sari endearingly contrasts with her daughter’s scarlet skirt.

Was The Football In It? That's an ingenious device certainly, the stick-and-clasp used by Arjun kapoor to take a selfie. Was that original, though? It didn't matter for Nita Ambani (who, yet again, shows an amazing knack of being in the thick of things), Aishwarya, Rajnikanth, Sachin and Alia. The ISL opening ceremony in Chennai was done. It was time for cosiness.

Salman Making up after a fight was never as romantic as when Nandini makes Sameer eat those many chillies in HDDCKS.

Salman Nandini, Sameer and a swaying chandelier. That first meeting when she calls him khatta nimbooda and he tells her “agar mujhe yun hi dekhti rahin toh pyaar ho jayega”. Collective sigh. Hum Bhi Dil De Chuke Sanam.

Many Met By Starlight When superstar trumvirate Rajni­kanth, Kamalahaasan and Amitabh Bachchan congregate at a function, they practically own the stalking lenses. At Mumbai, the three met, were gracefully self-effacing, then effusive about each other, and posed gamely for the obligatory batch of photos on the stage. But the occasion was, through the music launch of Ami­tabh-starrer Shamitabh, scored by Ilaiyaraja, a tribute to the veteran music-­man himself. Everyone was there, including Aishwarya Rai, who is being polite to the megastars.

Chokher Bali (Bengali, 2003) Rabindranath Tagore’s eponymous novel on widowhood and patriarchy is the foil for Rituparno Chatterjee’s film. Widow Binodini (Aishwarya Rai) and new bride Ashalata (Raima Sen) give each other a common nickname ‘Chokher Bali’ (sand in the eye). The film is an interweave of their friendship, the man whose love they share, the mistrusts and falling out.
