  • Big fat fashion disaster

    When it comes to representing India abroad, why do we always go overboard? Here’s why

    When Anil Ambani walked the Oscar red carpet last year with his Dream Works Studios partners Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider, one couldn’t help notice the contrast in the attires. Ambani opted for black velvet, red-trimmed bandhgala, with ruby and diamond buttons, as opposed to a tuxedo. While it is commendable that he went for the Indian attire, surely he could have done better than the ill-fitting pants and the over the top bandhgala. The otherwise suave businessman is known for his crisp suits and formal clothes but why did he lose the plot while walking the red carpet?

    Cut to 65th Cannes Film Festival, the hotbed of the latest in style, fashion and couture. Cannes 2012 saw Aishwarya Rai bounce back after the public backlash regarding her weight post pregnancy.

The casting process though was not all smooth sailing. Rishi Kapoor was initially skeptical about whether he would be able to carry off the role. However, once his look test was done, the veteran actor needed no more convincing that he was the right choice, so much Read More »from Rishi Kapoor's look inspired by Dawood?
  • ‘Formula films don’t work for me’

    Says John Abraham as he talks about his character in ‘Shootout At Wadala’ and choice of films

    When John Abraham burst into the small screen with ripped body and dimpled cheeks in ‘Jism’, the critics were quick to put him under ‘models can’t act’ slot. The film grabbed a lot of eyeballs for its erotic content and audience approved of his chocolaty looks. After a string of flops, his role in Yash Raj’s Dhoom set him in the league of A-list actors and proved that he was here to stay. After 11 years in the industry, he is gearing up for a life-changing performance as Manya Surve in Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Shootout At Wadala’. In a candid chat, John talks about his character and why formula love stories don’t work for him.
