Mannara looks tacktastic, says Aniket Satam about the Zid actress’s fashion statement this week!

Our in-house fashion designer and critic Aniket Satam decodes celeb style statements of the week. Some impress, some depress and some are plain disasters! Teaser-Aniket-Says Manara-0111214 Shraddha-kapoor-011214 Sonaksh DSC_5481-0111214 27-11-2014-112114 Read on what he says…

Barbie Handa aka Mannara : With a name like that you can’t help and draw similarities with your namesake plastic icon.The match-up is plain patchy and the bright mouth just makes it worse.The slouchy top with those Gym leggings, off Hill road street shops makes the look more tacky and who wears two different styles of cuff in both the hands firstly. Tackastic!

Shraddha Kapoor : How stunning does Ms Kapoor look in this elegant floral 50s style dress.Old school sash belt dress with painterly print can be extremely tricky but Shraddha with her evergreen (Pun intended) girl-next-door charm makes this classic American style work.With that print so loud, minimal accessories route compliments the entire impact of the casual yet formal dressing.

Sonakshi Sinha : After last weeks misses, Sona bounces back in her stylist best in this classic monochrome number.The fitted pencil skirt with button white shirt works stunningly with those curled short hair.Laid back pendant chain and strappy sandals complete this look with a fun quotient. She looks radiating and stunning.

Ranveer Singh: That perfect pastel suit combination is just murdered with an odd maroon bowler hat. A sassy beret in grey or classic beige fedora would have added to this look but this weird-colored funny hat just ruined the entire effort of dressing up. An all bald appearance would add to the quirkier appeal to Mr Funny Bone.

Shruti Haasan: Worst thing can happen to any couture gown is an awkward pose which kills the soul of any well crafted design. That leg formation and hands on hips makes one look funny.

So you agree with Aniket’s judgement? Tell us in the comments section below!

Sonakshi Sinha to romance Fawad Khan?

Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha may be the second Indian actress to romance Pakistan’s Fawad Khan in a Bollywood film.

If the latest report is anything to go by, then Shotgun junior will be paired opposite India’s latest heartthrob from across the border in a film based on poet-writer Amrita Pritam and Sahir Ludhyanvi’s lives.

Fawad made a million hearts skip a beat as Zaroon Junaid in Zindagi’s ‘Zibdagi Gulzar Hai’. He then wooed his female fans as a majestic Rajput Prince in Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Khoobsurat’.

It will be interesting to see if Fawad and Sona’s chemistry succeeds in creating magic on screen. 


Bigg Boss 8 highlights: Puneet Issar and Karishma Tanna lock horns, Renee gets evicted and Gautam Gulati makes peace with Praneet Bhatt!

Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha begin the show with their performance on Tere Mast Mast Do Nain.A cheerful banter between the two ensues but somehow it seems too rehearsed. Sonakshi makes a joke about how “waat lagne wali hai”. Salman makes a joke about how Sona has lost a lot of weight. He refers to her as Sonakshi devi, he even mimics her dad Shatrughan Sinha. But somehow the banter seems too forced.

Sonakshi goes inside the house

Salman sends Sona inside the house. Upon entering the house Sonakshi makes a joke about Diandra Soares’s hairstyle rather the lack of it! Sona gives away sweets to Puneet who dance best to Prabhu Deva’s song with Dimpy Ganguly! In other performances Diandra gives Gautam Gulati a peck during the performance. Gautam shows off his excellent dance moves.

Sonakshi makes the contestants speak their mind

Jr Shotgun makes the contestants name each other for the proverbs she says. Diandra says she thinks “naach na jaane aangan tedha” fits Sonali Raut the best. Gautam names Praneet as the most suited for “ghar ka bhedi Lanka dhaye” proverb. Sonakshi stops the fight with the song “dost dost na raha” Well done, Sona!

Sonakshi thinks Puneet is the most negative contestant!

After exiting the house Sonakshi tells Salman that she thinks Puneet ji ”bohot politics khelte hain“. Sona doesn’t like how Puneet controls P3G. Sonakshi finds Sonali most ajeeb but Salman says he likes her.

Gautam and Praneet fight but finally make peace!

Praneet and Gautam’s fight escalates after Gautam makes the ghar ka bhedi lanka dhaaye comment. But the two talk it out and the differences are resolved! Thank God for that!

Salman makes the contestants play the Battery Saver task

Salman makes the contestants play the Battery Saver task asking them True or False question about comments they may or may not have made about each other in the house. It is basically a recap of all the bitching the housemates have ever done about each other so far. The Battery Saver tasks reveals that Karishma Tanna thinks Sonali Raut doesn’t have any personality. Salman also reveals that Puneet had made a comment about how he thinks Karishma is brainless! Diandra comes out as the the winner in this task. Well we just want to say the old saying that goes”digging up old graves never helped anyone.” We just want to tell the makers of BB 8 that making the inmates relive their old animosities wont help the TRPs because they anyway hate each other way too much!

Renee gets evicted

Salman makes Renee realise that her friendship with Upen could have influenced the audiences in her favour but she couldn’t save that bond in the house. Sonali and Praneet are saved from elimination.

Renee drops the Bigg Bomb!

Renee tells Sonali to get her act straight and not do everything for the camera. In turn Sonali retorts that the cameras focus on her whenever she does anything, to which the crowd and Salman cheer most loudly! Renee snaps at Puneet and Pritam and Salman says that had she shown such spunk inside the house she wouldn’t have been nominated. We totally agree with Salman!

Renee nominates Pritam Singh and Praneet for captaincy

Before leaving, Renee drops the Bigg Bomb and names Pritam and Praneet as the potential candidates for captaincy.

Salman ends the episode with his patent “Do whatever you what!” We want you to tell us who you think deserves to be the captain this time?

Bigg Boss 8: Gautam Gulati and Praneet Bhatt argue over the former’s “ghar ka bhedi Lanka dhaye” remark!

Sonakshi Sinha made the inmates play a game in this episode of Bigg Boss 8

Sonakshi Sinha just came out of the house. She had asked the contestants to take names at the proverbs she says. When she asks Gautam Gulati who he thinks is “ghar ka bhedi” the former names Praneet Bhatt.

After that Gautam and Praneet get into an argument. Praneet clarifies that his intention was never to hurt Gautam. He even clarifies that he still thinks of Gautam as a good friend. Gautam in turn hears out Praneet and says that he is hurt that Praneet calls him negative. He asks Praneet to promise him that if they meet outside the house they will be as friendly as they used to be in the past!

Praneet promises that he will try his best to keep the P3G group intact and the fight is resolved. Now that Gautam and Praneet have extended and accepted each other’s olive branches we hope that peace prevails in the house!

Bigg Boss 8: Sonakshi Sinha calls Gautam Gulati the Action Jackson of the house!

In tonight’s episode Action Jackson actress Sonakshi Sinha’s entry in the Bigg Boss 8 house shakes things up!

Sonakshi Sinha enters the Bigg Boss 8 house and is seen merrily chatting with the contestants. Apart from mingling with the contestants she also engaged them in a little game of her own!

Sonakshi gives some Hindi proverbs asking the housemates to name the first contestant who pops in their mind when they hear that proverb. She asks Puneet Issar who thinks of when he hears the proverb, ‘unchi dukaan, pheeka pakwan‘, and pat comes Puneet’s reply, “Karishma Tanna!” Well, that wasn’t entirely unexpected, hai na?

Sona asks Praneet Bhatt to tell who he thinks suits “bandar kya jaane adrakh ka swaad” and he names Ali Quli Mirza.

Jr Shotgun then asks Diandra Soares to tell her who fits the proverb ‘Naach na jaane angan tedha‘ best and they both name Sonali Raut. Way too many haters in the house for Sonali! Sonali calls Ali a “garajne wala baadal jo barastaa nahi!” Sadly, Ali’s dog barking didn’t help this time! Sonakshi then asks Gautam whose name comes to his mind when she says “ghar ka bhedi Lanka dhaaye!” and he names Praneet. Then a mini-fight between Gauti and Bhatt ensues and Sona ends the argument with singing “dost dost na raha”!

Stay tuned for more Bigg Boss 8 episode updates!

Sonakshi Sinha doesn’t feel insecure in muti-starrer

Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha will be seen in the forthcoming film 'Action Jackson' and the actress says she doesn't feel insecure due to the presence of multi-stars in the movie.

"In my four years' career, this is my first multi-starrer. I've always played solo heoine. But the fact is even in this film, I was very pampered," Sonakshi, who will be seen along with Yami Gautam and Manasvi Mamgai in 'Action Jackson', said.

"I do films with all my sense. When I signed the film, I knew there are two more girls in it. But I am not the kind of person who gets insecure," she added.

Sonakshi, who has worked with established actors like Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar as well as young stars like Ranveer Singh, says she has gotten along with all her co-stars.

"Every actor is different and their personality is different. So, you can't compare. I have gotten along well with all my co-stars. From senior actors, you get to learn a lot. But with the young lot, you learn things together," said the 27-year-old.

Directed by Prabhudeva, "Action Jackson" will hit theatres Dec 5.


I was intimidated off-camera: Manasvi Mamgai

Mumbai: Model Manasvi Mamgai is set to make her Bollywood debut with the film "Action Jackson" and she says initially she wasn't comfortable off-camera.

Asked if it was difficult to make her acting debut with a star like Ajay Devgn, she told reporters: "At first, I was very intimidated, not on-camera but off-camera. The film's shooting had begun in India while most of my scenes were to be shot abroad at a later stage. 

"So I asked the producer to let me come on the sets and get to know everybody. They made me very comfortable. (Director) Prabhudheva sir is like an icon, especially for dancing. And Ajay sir is a sweetheart he gave me lot of technical tips. My main focus was on expressions. He taught me how to look at the camera and be aware of the angles too," she added.

"Action Jackson" also features Sonakshi Sinha and Yami Gautam. And Manasvi got along well with them too.

"Sonakshi is a fun girl. Yami belongs to Chandigarh so, we bonded very well. All three of us have equal roles. No one is overshadowing anybody. So, no cat fights on the sets," said the former beauty queen.
