amazing grace!

Back when I was in school, we were asked to read Shakuntala Devi’s books, which promised you that you culd have fun with math. Of course, most of us steered clear of them as we clearly thought it was a misinformation campaign. Math was something to be endured, because it was compulsory. Those good at it were subject to both envy and loathing. I never believed one could have fun with numbers till I saw Vidya Balan acting as Shakuntala Devi in the latter’s biopic. The way Vidya’s face lit up while doing difficult sums, like she was eyeing an all-you-can-eat Onam sadhya instead of a ginormous set of numbers, made me aware that the human mind is capable of finding joy in anything. Vidya is no mathematician but she caught…

PRIYASHA BHARDWAJ X FACTOR: HER GO-GETTER ATTITUDE Priyasha Bhardwaj grew up in Guwahati, Assam before moving to New Delhi for her education. She’s a trained Bharatnatyam and Kathak dancer and has also trained in several Western dance forms over the years. She wished to pursue dance as a profession.

Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is based on the exploits of Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena, the first woman Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot to fly in the combat zone. For a film of this kind, research is critical and director Sharan Sharma was lucky that the reallife Gunjan Saxena was there with him every step of the way. Detailing is critical in depicting the world of the IAF with authenticity and integrity. “Gunjan Ma’am luckily gave us all the time and attention we needed to be able to tell the story with honesty and with attention to detail in terms of recreating the world of the IAF,” he gushes. When he first called up Gunjan, in February 2017, to broach the idea of makng a film on her life, she…

daring to dream

Actors lead an extraordinary life. They have to look good all the time. Every Friday seems to be a litmus test. Like gladiators, they enter the arena with a smile which never wavers even if they lose. Like Olympic athletes, they have to keep striving to go higher, swifter, ahead of the rat pack. But their childhood is just like that of the mango people – big dreams in their eyes, dancing in front of the mirror and mimicking their favourite stars. That’s exactly how Shivaleeka Oberoi spent her growing up days. The actress who surprised the audience in her debut film Yeh Saali Aashiqui (2019) and later in the OTT release Khuda Haafiz (2020), has always been a Hindi film buff. Just like millions of millennial girls, she too…

“The future of make-up is minimalism. The idea is to have good skin that looks fresh and dewy. These things will never go out of style” A dash of highlighter, a pop of glossy tint, a stroke of perfect liner and your face is transformed. Make-up is nothing short of art. From the exaggerated pancake look of the ’70s to the minimalism of the current decade, make-up is more than just some brush strokes and concealers hiding your blemishes.
