letter from the editor

Young and restless The promos are out and it’s already a winner. Dhadak seems like a film, which is going to make you fall in love with its leads Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. By the looks of it, they are poised to be India’s next sweethearts for a long, long time to come. Looks like Dharma has got its hands on the next big romantic pair. Dhadak is a remake of Sairat but the promos carry shades of Dharma Productions, what with exotic locations, brightly lit scenes and a vibrant colour palette. Karan Johar needs to revisit college romance. How I’d love to have him direct the young hopefuls in the near future! Ishaan has proved himself as an actor in Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds. Majidi is known as a…

the sunshine girl

“I DON’T BELIEVE I’M A CELEBRITY. I WAS SICK OF MYSELF DURING THE PROMOTIONS. I’D WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, LOOK AT MYSELF IN THE MIRROR AND BE LIKE ‘CHEE YAAR... WAPIS NAHI!’ I HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING TO EARN THIS MUCH ATTENTION” She walks into the room asking if she can take a one-minute breather. She’s tired after giving a gazillion interviews. Fortunately, I’m the last one. She munches on a sweet and asks for an Americano to get her energy buzzing, all this while feeling apologetic. She may be tired but her face is ablaze. The sparkle of youth and the fire to prove herself is evident in her doe eyes. She may have made her debut with Dhadak but the fact is that Janhvi Kapoor unwittingly befriended celebrityhood way…

the millennial sensation

“KARAN SIR (JOHAR) HAS INFLUENCED ME GREATLY. HE’S INTELLIGENT, HE’S PERCEPTIVE, HE’S HILARIOUS AND HE’S THOUGHTFUL. HE THINKS AHEAD OF TIME... HE MAKES FILMS WITH HIS HEART” His energy reminds you of Ranveer Singh, his playfulness is somewhat like Varun Dhawan and of course there’s a lot of brother Shahid Kapoor too. Yet, Ishaan Khatter is unique. He grew up in the world of movies and now he’s all geared up to own it. Though an industry kid, he’s worked his way up the alley. After an unconventional but highly acclaimed start with Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds, Ishaan has made a full-blown splash in Hindi movies with Dharma Productions’ Dhadak. Bigwigs are already placing their bets on his unrehearsed spontaneity. Ask him about his journey and he gives credit to…

the fashion blitzkrieg

Amala Paul in a contrasting scarlet and mint green gown with a structured one-sided creation added a pop of colour on the red carpet. It was love with shimmer and shine for Kiara Advani, who added the ultimate glam quotient to the event with the Manish Malhotra creation. Wearing the soft hue to perfection, Sruthi Hariharan looked like a million bucks in this asymmetric embellished gown. Standing out from the crowd was the ethereal Priya Mani, who slayed with a simple yet classy royal blue saree. She was a red carpet favourite with her sartorial sass. A thousand-watt smile and that plunging neckline was all Rakul Preet Singh needed to scorch the red carpet. The classy blue and black combination was surely a good choice for the evening. Making a…
