letter from the editor

#Deep impact Deepika Padukone has given up her singleton status. The new bride is appearing lovelier each day. Marriage clearly has agreed with her. She’s happier, more open, more relaxed. There’s an inner glow to her that can’t be defined, rather can only be experienced. She’s brimming with a radiance unseen before. And her joy is infectious. You can’t help smile back when you talk to her because it’s coming from a good place. She hasn’t come to this without her share of heartbreaks. In fact, she was one of the few stars, who spoke so openly about depression. We see them at their best on screen and believe that’s the kind of life they lead in reality too. But beneath the rosy facade they are as human as you and I.…

guess who?

Last time, we had told you how this director was upset when her brother’s name popped up in the #MeToo campaign. We’re told there was more to that. The sister was deeply upset that her famous cousins threw a party that very week her brother was ousted from a film. She didn’t expect the cousins to support the brother, no way. But she expected them to scale down their celebrations, considering they’re family. Now this star twosome, who recently parted ways, hasn’t been on talking terms with each other. The two it seems have been avoiding each other in public. Recently, they bumped into each other at an award function but didn’t exchange a word. So much that when the actress was on stage to receive an award, her ex-boyfriend kept…

what’s up bro?

“Vicky (Kaushal) and I are good friends. But at times, he acts like my father. I look up to him. As kids, we had common friends. He’s protective about me” Yet another Kaushal has walked away with laurels in the past year. Sunny Kaushal, younger brother of the dashing Vicky Kaushal, won critics and audiences with his bravura act in Reema Kagti’s biopic Gold. His character, Himmat Singh, was reportedly based on Indian hockey player Balbir Singh Dosanjh, who played a key role in India’s win in London in 1948, Helsinki in 1952 and Melbourne in the 1956 Olympics. “The best compliment for me was that people believed I was a Sardar,” he says. But unlike the fiery Himmat Singh, Sunny insists he’s calm as a person. “I may be impulsive…
