A big-budget, Baahubali-like Tamil film being announced at Cannes? That’s how big it is, folks! Lead actors of Sanghamitra, Jayam Ravi and Arya flanking the gorgeous Shruti Hasan pose for the camera.
Meanwhile, screening the curtain-raiser of Manto at the riviera meant Rasika Duggal, Nawazuddin and director Nandita Das also had a shot taken.
It’s just another notch for Aishwarya at Cannes. But how many man-hours did the making of this fabulously detailed gown (by Filipino designerMichael Cinco) consume? Also, did her ‘namaste’ go well with it?
The 1-4 drubbing at the hands of the Danes at the Sudirman Cup must have hurt, so the stunning 4-1 reversal of scores against Indonesia would have cheered Team India’s shuttlers. Time then, for a day out at the scenic Gold Coast for P.V. Sindhu. A few months training, one thinks, and she’d churn up the ocean as well—so natural she looks in the company of a surf board.
On the question of joining politics, Thalaiva Rajnikanth is sometimes as silent as the sphinx, while often speaking in oracle-like riddles. His recent speech at a fan club actually shows that the time is his to pick.
Rumours of a rough patch in his relationship (or a nightmarish IPL season) hasn’t cooled the ardour of Virat Kohli, who arrived, hands locked, with Anushka Sharma at Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge’s engagement. We hope his spare hairstyle and bare ankles bring him luck in the Champions Trophy in England.
Johnny Depp’s public image seriously needs a rehab. It’s being claimed that Depp is broke (by Hollywood standards), and that he spends $30,000 a month on wine—this on the heels of his ugly divorce from Amber Heard. Depp possibly decided to get just a little bit more drunk. When Depp appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, looking “tired” or “out of it”, it is safe to speculate that he’d had a few. A man with a bellyful of a ’47 Bordeaux that costs more than your annual savings!
