Magic Of ‘Touch-Up’…Ooh-La-La

Katrina-Kaif-untouched1katrina7_vogue copyKatrina Kaif, the cover girl for Vogue, India’s June 2016 issue has definitely pushed the sales of the glossy. On the world-of-web too, Katrina Kaif as the beach-babe is most-viewed. She definitely looks sexy and well-toned. But do we give the credit to the photographer, Luis Monterio and the uber stylist come Vogue-India’s Fashion Director, Anaita Shroff Adjania for the series of scintillating pictures???

katrina5_voguekatrina4_vogueSomebody clicked a picture of Katrina Kaif paddling in the blue waters at the Filipino beach, getting ready for the shot. This candid picture is not-so-flattering, even when we factor in that it is shot by some amateur, using possibly a mobile phone. The final shoot that is published in Vogue show Katrina Kaif more tanned, her facial features more defined and her arms a wee bit slender.


katrina2_voguekatrina1_vogueAnyway the Katrina Kaif shots in Vogue are worth a dekko. Touch-up and digital corrections are a given for any photoshoot of any celebrity in anywhere in the world. Enjoy!


corridors of power



Not much has changed in the capital since the dawn of 2016, but there are novelties though very few. With a new government in the center it is obvious to see the emergence of new players in the corridors of power. I am not talking about official players like top bureaucrats and cabinet ministers. I am talking about typical Delhi back-channel players who wield the power. After all Delhi is infamous Jugaad capital. The person monopolizing the privileged status in the corridors of power is a lady who has been discreet but power make everyone bloom. Corridors of power is savoring the pomegranate flavor! Is it too cryptic for you to decode? Well Gujarati lady, Anaar Patel is ruling the roost. She is the daughter of Gujarat CM, Anandiben Patel. Anara’s access to power goes all the way to the top, which makes many cabinet ministers envious of her clout. The buzz-word these days, if you know Anara ben, you have AAA (All Area Access) Pass. She is the lady-to-know about town! Anaar Patel has a mall coming up in Ahmedabad and her daughter is studying fashion in London and hence she is showing lot of interest in fashion industry.

Romancing in Koh SamuiWhat’s Delhi’s social-circuit up to? Same old shit! Oh by the way the infamous Ms. Date and Grizzly Bear are back together. Guess the adventure for greener pastures did not work out. The couple had a romantic New Year’s eve celebration in Koh Samui and on the way back were spotted cozying up like honeymooners on-board Singapore Airlines.

By the way…Micky Punj and his girlfriend, Vasuki hate the the guts of ‘yours truly’. Wonder why? A site titled ‘fashionscandal’ will obviously serve oily and fatty sinful comfort food and not gluten free vegan dishes to its readers. So if we write that Micky has a trophy gal, what’s the big deal???


katrina_fitoor1Leggy_1Leggy_2It seems  Hotties are all in their Forties. The women in their 40’s are grabbing the attention in Delhi. Was pretty impressed to see these leggy lasses all toned up, minus cellulite and the podgy knees sunning up in Goa. Nothing like toned legs but was pretty surprised by Katrina Kaif’s muscular legs until I discovered that she is gearing up for Mumbai Marathon and her trainer , Karishma Karachiwala is preparing Kat for a long haul. I am not a fan of muscular feminine legs. A taut and toned pair of legs are any day more desirable.

Men are still the same – Thadki but Jerky! Driven by libido but handicapped by performance, what else can you expect from the ‘Jerks’….

Indian actress Aishwarya Rai waves as she arrives for the screening of the film "Asphalte" (Macadam Stories) at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, southeastern France, on May 17, 2015.   AFP PHOTO / BERTRAND LANGLOIS        (Photo credit should read BERTRAND LANGLOIS/AFP/Getty Images)Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Sonam Kapoor had their red-carpet moment at the Cannes 2015. They all wore couture gowns and pouted for the paparazzi. Katrina Kaif was the first one from Team L’Oreal at the French Riviera. She wore a nude Oscar de la Renta gown and a red Elie Saab mermaid gown but who the hell suggested that reddish tinge on her hair??? It was such a disaster. And that ‘selfie’ moment with Jullianne Moore – all you see is Kat’s long nose.

CFOG_FAUgAEXx-Dsonam-kapoor-cannes-film-festival-2015_143180130020katrina-julianmoore-cannes2015Coming to the ‘Babes in Blue’Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a Elie Saab gown that gave a peek of her thighs and Sonam Kapoor in a Ralph and Russo deep-neck gown, were high on fashion but what to do with those big arms that both the ladies are blessed with. They beat Sunny Deol’s ’21/2 Kilo ke Haath’. Sonam Kapoor’s pictures were later hurriedly photoshopped by L’Oreal to take-off inches from those butter-chicken fed arms but by then it was too late.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dd some valuable work at Cannes. She joined in Salma Hayek and Parker Posey leading a call for greater gender equality in film at Cannes on Saturday. Speaking at the forum organised by trade magazine Variety and UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, the actors spoke of their own experiences of institutional sexism and called on studios, audiences and journalists to alter the discourse.

Upen Patel Blames The ‘Khan(Daan)’ For His Exit From Bigg Boss 8

upen-patel-biggboss8The NRI Gujju guy – Upen Patel is finally out of Bigg Boss Season 8.The wooden-faced actor survived 15 weeks and that itself is surprising. But Upen Patel believes his exit from Bigg Boss 8 was ‘engineered’ by none other than the host of the show – Salman Khan.

Amrita Arora and Upen Patel shown to userkatrinakaifandupenpatelinanoldphotoshoot-smallDuring his first lackluster stint in Bollywood, Upen dated Amrita Arora for a while. Now since Amrita Arora Ladak is related to the ‘Khan(daan)’ by virtue of her sister, Malaika Arora – Salman’s bhabi, Patel is ensuing that Amrita got him evicted for their failed relationship. In fact Katrina Kaif and Salman relationship too came in way of Upen because long time back Upen and Katrina worked in a Tamil movie and some unsubstantiated gossip linked Upen with Katrina Kaif. Upen is dumb and doesn’t know that Katrina only falls in love with ‘winners’ and not ‘losers’.

And Malaika Arora Khan is not really very close with Salman Khan. In fact if B-Town buzz is to be believed then there’s a strong under-current between Sallu and Malaika. Malaika’s sister, Amrita Arora influencing Sallu is far-fetched. In fact Amrita and Shakeel Ladak’s best friends are Kareena and Saif. Anyway let Upen Patel enjoy his bliss that he had been evicted under conspiracy and not the fact that he was the biggest bore in Bigg Boss’ House!



Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt Are Dating

Ranbir Kapoor_Alia BhattRanbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif love-story is over for sure. I believe the breaking point was over the word ‘commitment’, which Ranbir shies away from. Now the lady who occupies all the space in Ranbir Kapoor’s heart is the dainty Alia Bhatt. I am sure many will laugh this off but that never had deterred me from posting facts. And in no way this news is based on the fact that Ranbir is actively promoting Alia-Randeep starrer – Highway.

ranbi-alia-highwayNor is the news of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt based on their mutual admiration for each other, which both have voiced openly. My source is more reliable than so called ‘tabloid gossips’.

Arjun_MalaikaArjun-Kapoor-Alia-BhattYou may ask what happened to Arjun Kapoor. He was linked with Alia Bhatt. Folks Arjun Kapoor is loyal to madam Munni . I had written about it way back in April 2011 and the saga is still on, though very discreetly. Link to the earlier post is here:
