Both – Vikram Chatwal and Esther Cañadas had been married earlier. Chatwal got married to Priya Sachdev in 2006 while for Esther if this engagement matures to a wedding, it would be her third marriage. She was married to male model Mark Vanderloo in the late 1990s and then race-car driver Sete Gibernau. The couple split in 2008.
Tabloids were linking Vikram Chatwal to Lindsay Lohan and were rather surprised when news came in that Chatwal proposed Esther. Well they should have known that Lindsay Lohan and Vikram Chatwal are just Coke-Buddies!
Hotelier Vikram Chatwal, the ex husband of Delhi socialite – Priya Sachdev was arrested on 2nd April at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport with an arsenal of drugs hidden on his person, in his crotch and in his bag. Chatwal’s association with drugs in nothing new. He was also at a drug rehab hospital in Mumbai few years back and many US Tabloids have many a times reported Chatwal and his BFF – Lindsay Lohan as coke-buddies.
Vikram Chatwal was booked on one count of trafficking (6 grams of heroin) and seven counts of possession … including cocaine, buprenorphine (an opioid), clonazepam (a sedative), alprazolam (Xanax) and lorazepam (muscle relaxants), ketamine (a horse tranquilizer) and weed.
According to the police report, Chatwal admitted to cops that he illegally purchased and possessed the drugs.
Wearing the latest couture outfit or wrapping yourself up in latest fashion labels head to toe doesn’t make you fashionable. Yet our so-called fashionistas do just that so very often. Preparing this list of ‘fashion victims’ was difficult as had numerous suggestions. In fact I have totally avoided the new breed of crappy Page-3 types that find space in out newspaper tabloids as they don’t even qualify to be called ‘fashion-victims’. So Sapna, Dimple, Pushpanjali, Salloli, Vandy, Meenakshi, Ramola, Sangeeta, Kanchan, Preeti, Mamta and the types, you are spared. Will probably create a section – ‘fashion assault’ sometime soon.
A fashionable lady for me is somebody who knows her assets and flaws and dresses accordingly. The fashion victims I listed here are simply ignoring that basic factor about dressing up. Look at Nita Ambani. She looks graceful in a sari or an Anaarkali but what on earth made her wear these apron-type dresses? Nita you can go-back 20-years on Cover shoot courtesy airbrushing but not when it comes to dressing. Same goes for Sunanda Tharoor. She looks pretty in a sari but hey please make sure your blouse doesn’t have a wet patch around the under-arms. The dhoti-salwar is ugg! And Gauri Khan…that bronze look and cleavage show is getting a wee bit too much. Satin is an unforgiving fabric that reveals every bump and roll so if you wearing one, you better keep your posture taut.
Sonam Kapoor is the darling of the desi rag-mags. She’s been on the cover of almost all. But I feel at times Sonam go-overboard to flaunt the esoteric labels she has in her closet and look like a ‘pelican’. Remember her boobs almost spilled out of the Gaultier gown? Her broad shoulders aren’t flattering too in bare-shoulder numbers. Tanisha Mohan too has a wardrobe that any woman would envy and yet at times she wears clothes that can’t help but being labeled as ‘fashion victim’. Priya Sachdev in a sleeveless number is a disaster. I had written about it earlier here. Those unsightly folds around the armpit are better kept covered. Don’t you think so?
And what do I say about Queenie Singh? She has gone so much under the knife that she looks like a shriveled up raisin. Wearing short dresses doesn’t make her look fab. In fact those bony knee-caps stand out as an eyesore. Plunging necklines are fine but what about the saggy boobs?
It is not a secret now that Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur are getting divorced and the matter is in the court. In fact fashionscandal.com was the first to break this news way back on the 3rd of August 2012 when the post highlighted Sunjay Kapur’s new lady-love – Priya Sachdev. Here is the link to that post: http://wp.me/p1C8a1-13y
What actually led to the separation and the eventual divorce of Karisma and Sunjay Kapur? If very-very reliable sources are to be believed they were silly little domestic issues. Karisma would throw tantrums if she found her babies’ toys strewn around the house or see the tri-cycle of the kid in the lawn. These were primarily the main reasons between husband-wife tiffs. Come-on Karisma a household with kids will have toys strewn around or a tri-cycle left on the front lawn. What’s the big deal??? Any household with kids usually have toys all around. In fact it shows that the house is happy with happy toddlers full of energy. This obsession about things in order in a household with two infants is a bit too much.
Then the Bollywood bug bit Karisma Kapoor and she moved base to Mumbai. A marriage is difficult when husband – wife are leaving under separate roofs in different cities. Nothing much was achieved by Karisma in the so-called ‘second innings’ in Bollywood. All she managed was a C-grade movie that disappeared silently and some random advertisements deals selling rice. I wonder what’s the the future of Madhuri Dixit Nene’s return to Bollywood. Poor Dr. Nene left his medical practice to shift to Mumbai and be a house-husband. This Bollywood kida is dangerous. Once bitten, you can’t stay away from it!
Did I forget to mention Saasuma’s role in the whole Karisma-Sunjay splitsville saga? Oh well, being the dominant mother she is, Babita was a constant irritant in Sunjay and Karisma’s life. It is better to end the marriage that’s so bitter. Hope Sunjay Kapur and Priya Chatwal (who are virtually living in) will have a lasting marriage if they wish to tie the knot.
Well the whole town knew that Priya Sachdev (Priya and Vikram Chatwal are officially divorced now) is dating the much-married Sunjay Kapur (better known as Karisma Kapoor’s hubby) but they denied and often came out with statements in the Press that all is hunky-dory between Sunjay and Karisma.
The much-in-love couple – Priya and Sunjay earlier used to make separate entries to a party and also make separate exits. But last Saturday at Gaurav Karan’s party, Priya and Sunjay Kapur were like teeny love-birds. All through the night they wouldn’t leave each other’s hands and often get lost into each other’s eyes. If I believe my sources Priya has moved in with Sunjay Kapur.
So now what’s Karisma Kapoor gonna do? Still claim all is perfect between her and Sunjay Kapur? A marriage doesn’t fail because of the man or the wife. Both are equally responsible. Informed sources believe that Karisma married Sunjay Kapur on a rebound after her marriage alliance with Abhishek Bachchan fell through. I got lot of calls and that gave me tons of information. Babita, mother of Karisma and Kareena is a very interfering mom. Be it film producers, directors, boyfriends or a husband, Babita often rubbed them on the wrong side. Karisma though married in Delhi never really could give up Mumbai. And the addiction of Bollywood is something that stars can hardly give up. Probably her plans of rejoining Bollywood was too soon post marriage and motherhood. I would say Madhri Dixit Nene timed the Bollywood allure well. She is making her comeback only after her kids are grown up and family life is on a smooth track. Karisma sure did make a hasty return. Resultant her Bollywood return bombed disastrously and marriage is in the docks. It may not have been easy for Sunjay Kapur to comeback to an empty house month after month.
Anyway I am no marriage counsellor and the love birds – Priya and Sunjay were spotted last night at The Library Bar in Leela. This time the duo made separate exits once they discovered many shutterbugs were around. Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya???
