Going to Manali and getting yourself photographed with a friend lost its cool sharpness circa 1995, so why are ‘fan clubs dedicated to Alia and Ranbir’ on Instagram (remember, unemployment is at a four-decade high) excited with this? Great Himachali topi...ghastly, bluish shades...flowers...shooting for a movie called Brahmastra.... Oh, the high of spotting stars!

No, this Ganesh Chatur­thi cel­eb­rati­ons at the Amb­anis’ (do they have to dance attendance, tho­­ugh?) wasn’t Ran­bir’s best show. Nope, not because of the silver text­ure of his kurta peeking under that spotty galabandh, but beca­use of the rad­­ia­­nce of Alia—the floral pattern mirrors her smile, and finds completion in those substantial earrings.

Gosh! We thought these two are getting married as a runaway couple! But no, Ranbir and Alia are merely ‘launching’ their film Brahmastra at the Kumbh Mela. A further gimmick: 150 drones spelt out the name on the night sky. Shouldn’t sadhus protest?

When Twinkle Toes Alia and Happy Feet Ranbir meet King Khan on stage, thumkas are expected to fly. Let the cobalt green anarkali (paired with chandelier earrings, coy smiles and jibber-jabber stolen on the side) swirl for Prince Charming in a blue suit. The Mumbai cops can’t be happier, their Umang is high. But where is pest control? The photobomb squad, to be precise.

Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor participates in Ganapati immersion procession, at RK Studio, in Mumbai, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018. The Kapoor family has decided to sell off the landmark RK studio -- 70 years after it was established -- as it was not "economically viable" to rebuild it after it was gutted down in a fire last year.

Why, ask Bollywood gossipers, could not Ranbir Kappoor latch on to one of the several glamorous Bolly­wood actresses he has dated? A commitment problem, or have the lad­ies something to add to the riddle? The one actress who is bent on kee­ping Ranbir secure, we hear, is Alia Bhatt. It’s up to Ranbir now!

We’ve expended ink on this before...these age-defying visitations from Rekha. The IIFA Awards in Bangkok will now be remembered not for the mandatory waffling of tired actors mewling stilted jokes, but for the prima donna in her anarkali, as perfectly preserved as she was in Umrao Jaan, as nimble on her feet while the nostalgic tunes played out. The aud­ience was overwhelmed; the whole galaxy of male stars swirling at her feet only marked her pull.

First, the foreground: Ranbir Kapoor, flanked by director Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, flashes a ‘heart’ at the press at the teaser launch of Sanju, which promises much in terms of flying high-down in the gutters-picking oneself up drama. Now look at the background—the utterly wondrous transformation of Ranbir into the man he impersonates, Sanjay Dutt. Modern make-up has done its bit. Can Ranbir motivate himself to complete the likeness?

With football giving Indians a lucky respite from bat and ball, a team from Bollywood (capt: Abhishek Bachchan) met one made of sportsmen (led by, who else, Virat). Competition was stiff, and shots at the goal came in flurries. In the end, All Hearts FC outran and outplayed All Stars FC. They won 7-3.

If you’re thinking Rani could just walk in into a movie, know this: Durga Puja furnishes eno­ugh beauties to fill up two Bol­l­y­woods. But at the North Bom­­-bay Sarbojonin puja, known for its starry footfall, Rani met up with Ranbir, loo­k­ing han­dsome as the devil in a peach-coloured kurta. But then, Rani will be back, in a movie called Hichki!

It’s late, and the two club-hopping friends just needed a smoke break. But, even in the Big Apple, a furtive lensman was keeping watch on the casual Ranbir and gorgeously gowned Mahira Khan. The usual social media baloney ens­ued. Next time, guys, just take a break in Tallinn.

The grace and humility with which San­jay Dutt has borne his years of incarceration is one of filmdom’s warmest tales, and his comeback in Bhoomi was cheered by all. Ranbir spoke of the man whom everyone has come to love. He got a hug in return.

A Lennon-esque look bodes well for Ranbir Kapoor’s next venture, a bio­pic. But for all his attempts at ‘into-­the­-­skin’ met­hod, the viewer has to make a leap of the ima­­gin­ation to liken him with a young Sanjay Dutt. Can he not make his eyelids droop a bit?

It’s possibly an ersatz legend, but that’s what the beauteous Twinkle Khanna is peddling these days. It was the release of her book, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, and lining up for her in solidarity were Ranbir, Alia, Sha­­bana Azmi and many more.

Swing, But Not A Miss Dress like the way Ranbir does—jacket, tie and trainers—for giving the pony-tailed Anushka, in polka-dotted slacks and short-cropped top, a swing that would make her whoop with joy. The occasion was the now-familiar release of a trailer—of Bombay Velvet in this case, pairing the pictured duo for the first time.

POOH-poohing any suggestion of a romance is one thing. But Katrina and Ranveer post a series of photos on a Spanish beach, have taken different stands. She is alternately jokey and sullen; he is grumpy, then more grumpy.

Directors' Final Cut This snap at a 2009 fashion show threw grist at the rumour. Since then, the Ranbir-Katrina rom­ance—mount, plateau, plain—has been tracked by troops of Page 3 bloodhounds. What prompts us to take note? A rumoured recrudescence of their filmy ‘lurve'.

AFP (From Outlook Magazine 13 May 2013 Issue)

Multi-Course Grace Of the many wazwans Ranbir's partaken of in the Valley, this post-Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani shoot sit-down with Deepika was thought to be the one that'd overturn the tarami. The doomsayers didn't account for the healing properties of cured meats.

PTI

Words Unspoken Who’d have thunk it? A flower plucked from Ranbir’s screaming legions to plant one on her man at a Barfi! promo wilts. Was it charm, cologne, or his wisecrack to a ‘where to peck, sir’ query? ‘Keep it simple, silly’.

Fotocorp (From Outlook 24 September 2012)

A Step Out Of Place Ah, the Robot. The default dance setting for Star Wars shut-ins and Asimov otakus, but an odd choice of move at an initiative to spread the fitness gospel. Not to tell tales out of school, but perhaps Ranbir was cut up about losing the Marks for Sports ambassadorship of Mumbai to Bipasha.

Sub-Subliminality Let not eyes linger on Ranbir’s ‘lip-lock’ with Barfi! director Anurag Basu lest the subtext be lost. If actions > words, Priyanka’s look-away and Ileana D’Cruz’s smile-cringe speak volumes about using loud gimmickry to promote a film on a deaf-mute.

After the split comes separation and friendship follows soon after. The script has been played before! It’s Ranbir and Deepika now, Bollywood’s former ‘it’ couple, flaunting their ‘friendship’. Seen together at a late night show of her film Housefull, their ‘singledom’ appears compromised.
