AWARDS NIGHT DONE RIGHT I must begin by admitting that I don’t read magazines much, but I have been picking up the last few editions of HELLO! and I enjoyed every bit of it. After the insightful and rich Art Special, Aditi Rao Hydari issue, I was waiting for what’s next and HELLO! didn’t disappoint. I absolutely love how versatile Ranveer Singh is and to see how he carries off such an outlandish suit on the cover is brilliant. I also appreciate that you featured Vicky Kaushal on the cover because I feel he’s one of the best actors around in Hindi cinema, now.

editor’s note

It is that time of the year, when everyone has pretty much switched off from the humdrum of daily life with the summers setting in. The heat wave in North India has already intensified, but in the rest of India the heat is on, on different fronts – the 2019 Lok Sabha elections which is the hottest news right now. Who will form the next government to lead the country? Will PM Modi’s BJP make another thumping comeback or will Baba Rahul be given a chance to prove his political prowess or naivety, whatever we want to call it? My vote would be for someone who can promise us clean air to breathe and let us live like normal human beings. Alas, this is not even a point of discussion…

TARAS TARAPORVALA The Bangalore-born Taras only discovered his passion for photography at 20. He subsequently studied his craft in Melbourne and then worked for half a decade with the Times Group of magazines. Capturing the effervesence of this month’s cover girls, the debutantes Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria, was clearly a highly engaging experience. Says he, “It is always refreshing to work with debuting stars; they are super-enthusiastic and bring a lot of positive energy to the set,” he observes. “And of course, we appreciated all the thought and support from the HELLO! team.” ASHIMA MEHRA Ashima has worked with Atul Kasbekar prior to starting her career as a freelance photographer and also done a Masters in Fashion Photography from the London College of Fashion.
