‘Mausam’ which is set to be released this Friday had a grand premiere which boasted of a guest list which comprised of who’s who of the industry. However, the star who was conspicuous by her absence was Shahid’s ex Kareena Kapoor. This becomes all the more obvious owing to the fact that Shahid and Pankaj decided the guestlist. They personally called or texted everyone from the industry.
While there were lot of beautiful persona present at the premiere including the likes of Sonakshi Sinha, Rani Mukherjee, Bipasha Basu, Amrita Rao and so on, both Kareena and Vidya Balan were absent from the occassion....

After Celina Jaitley announces her marriage to Dubai-based hotelier Peter Haag on Twitter, we have yet another actress who claims that she is in a relationship with a foreigner. Talking about Kangana Ranaut, the actress claims happily that she is once again in a relationship (After having an ugly break up with Aditya Pancholi and Adhyayan Suman).
She revealed this on Simi Garewal’s India’s Most Desirable saying, “I’m in a relationship and this guy is a very nice guy.”
Without giving out his name, Kangana elaborated that her beau knows to play the guitar and usually serenades her with his singing, which is amazing and magical. “I’ve known him for a year and a half … he is a doctor and a scientist. I met him in India, through a friend. We travelled together. We lived together. But his job is so demanding you know. He lives in a lab for days and days ..........



Kajal Agarwal played Aishwarya Rai’s friend in Kyun! Ho Gaye Na… way back when in 2004. A lot has changed in the last seven years. America has fought wars with Iraq and Afghanistan. India has crashed appallingly out of one world cup and won the other. The world has gone through two recessions. The one thing that has not changed though – are her airs. Miss Agarwal seems to be strangely lacking in any. She lacks even the regulation ‘I live in town’ air that makes all South Mumbai citizens walk in slow motion surveying the ‘urbs’. Miss Agarwal has grown up a proud South Mumbai citizen, her fondest memories are that of the fair at the CCI (Cricket Club of India) and eating cotton candy she tell us at the shoot, when we hand her a box. It’s two boxes actually and not on a stick as she used like, but she gets by.
All cute girls now wear glasses. Miss Agarwal does too...

I’m having what you’d call a crisis of faith – only unlike Hank Moody I’m not standing in a church and there’s no hot nun offering me a blowjob. Fortunately or unfortunately, despite the naked temple carvings, the religion my father was born into doesn’t lend itself to anything more than bhajans.
For me and many others like me who’ve been raised on a steady diet of American television and other colorful “literature”, the realities of India kick our ass every day.
Last two times I’ve been in a hospital for surgery, I’ve opened my eyes through the anaesthesia induced drowsiness to find my pajamas pulled down and a painkiller injection planted in my left butt cheek an have looked up hoping to find the nurse MR. Charlie Harper used to run into regularly before he was bumped off the show.
Thankfully though, unlike sex, school had prepared me for this eventuality – the school nurse was a friend’s mother. Umm, so yeah that was that. True, growing up I had an electronic teacher so hot, solder irons seemed like a waste of money.
There were the hotties of the basketball team, but that theory was quickly trashed when I found out that a number of people in the group fancied him same girl and she wasn’t exactly the typical basketball hottie.
Every time I read about the hot cop fantasy, Kiran Bedi leaps out, and you don’t actually want to read what comes to mind. If the Yanks saw the man who cleans my car, they and Jessica Simpson both would get synchronized strokes. And turns out that the personal assistants that Don Draper employed don’t exist in India either, nor do desks to hide whiskey bottles in, but that’s for another day. The school girl fantasy is out too – what are we Japanese? Staying with education – Our librarians look more like Anna Hazare than that hot librarian in a two button open white shirt, tight skirt and spectacles recommending the latest bestsellers.
Strauss Kahn been in India, he wouldn’t really have wanted to help himself to the help.
In India, we have clichés like the slutty bhabhi with a taste for her younger brother-in-law. The hot NGO chicas – girls who wear Fab India kurtas over their perfect bikini bodies and quote Kundera the sort you wouldn’t have had a shot with, had it not been for Anna. True, if this piece is ever charged with objectifying women, then Moody and my lord together will not be able to defend it, but the clichés do still exist in the west – a place also credited with giving birth two the bra-burning movement. The problem then is not in the existence of these clichés so much as in them being as useful in India as fur in Mumbai, a trend that does exist, mind you.
Till some kind soul takes up my suggestion, I’m just gonna park my thoughts and myself at the side of the road waiting for that raunchy meter maid to drop by, oh wait, that isn’t going to happen either is it! 

SAINA NEHWAL

Audrina Patridge
Sometimes a celebrity becomes so famous that their surname becomes superfluous. If we say Britney, you think Spears.
I don’t really care are read what people say. I used to, but then I realized that if you care about what everyone else thinks and try to please them all, then you will end up destroying up yourself.
About dance she says that; she was dancing with two sprained ankles. I had to wear numbing pads, because it heart so much, but I kept smiling and won the judges over, so I was really proud of myself. Appearing on that show and dancing in front of an audience of 20 million people was the biggest accomplishment of my career so far.
Ballroom dancing is good for her body she says. She said that favorite part of her body is stomach. Because when she was little she had a good, athletic stomach and than I made my high school swim team...

In a game where the focus is on numbers, Nicollet has quite a few to her credit. She’s only 20, stands just an inch short of six feet and is already the best player in India. Blessed with eyes that are a curious mix of brown and grey whirlpools and an attitude that’s forthcoming, this Bangalorean has got the golf circuit excited for reasons that go beyond her swimming skills. Within months of going pro, Nicollet’s not only accumulated titles and the No.1 ranking, but also legions of fans. For her, the male attention has never been in short supply and she confesses that it gets a tad irritating at times. “But I’m not a fighter or a hater,” comes her teasing reply.
“ I like fashion and love to wear bright colours. Sania (Mirza) changed tennis in India and I want to bring young people to golf,” she explains.
Before swinging those clubs, Nicollet was on her way to becoming a champion swimmer – “I was a state – level swimmer” – and also played basketball and tennis. But soon enough, the 11-year-old Nicollet developed a greater love for the greens.
She also getting used to being alone on tour and handling everything she earlier relied on her mother for. “ The past year, I’ve been traveling alone. It was tough initially because suddenly I had to do everything from scheduling practice to clearing hotel bills, but it’s all part of growing up isn’t it?” she asks.
Getting better at her game is the constant thought running through her head. A keen student – she scored 85% in Class X – Nicollet’s now studying Psychology with the objective of being able to help herself and her game. “I would say 60% of golf is mental and just 40% is physical, Psychology helps me be better prepared to handle the mental side of things.”
A big fan of hip – hop, the leggy lass never misses a concert in the city unless she’s traveling. “I need to have a life. I deserve some space and keep the course out of my life at least on weekends. I don’t restrict myself totally. I watch TV all the time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t train properly. For five days a week I’m golf obsessed, on the weekend, I’m just a girl,” she shays sweetly. Spending time with her seven dogs  “I’m an animal lover, wherever I go, they follow me” and zipping around in her car is another way Nicollet unwind. “I love cars. My Honda City is all pimped up,” she says excitedly.
For the young hopeful who has her eyes set on the 2016 Olympics-when golf will finally be included in the games – there seems to be a lot of fun waiting to be had in the process...

Remember the chiffon sari fluttering in the icy Swiss Alps winds? How could you not, since growing up on a hearty YRF diet has embedded that image in every impressionable mind.
