STAR KIDS

The Future of Bollywood? by AYESHA BABAR What do Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhavan and Salman Khan have in common? They all happen to be what are called ‘star kids’ in the language of Bollywood. All of these celebs and many more like them have grown up in celebrity families, mingling with the biggest names in the industry from the time they first opened their eyes.

The sheer clout that these young and old actors have in the filmmaking circles has sparked a huge debate on nepotism in Bollywood. Bollywood is increasingly being seen as a closeddoor clique, which you can enter only through connections, making it extremely difficult for so-called ‘outsiders’ to flourish in. While there are exceptions, the most note-worthy of course being Shah Rukh Khan, the

ARYAN KHAN If your father is one of the biggest stars in the world, let alone, India, it must be hard to avoid the limelight. Aryan is Shah Rukh Khan’s eldest son, born in 1997. The young lad, who seems to have the perfect mix of his parents’ good looks, has just graduated from school in London and will be heading to the US soon to start university. While there have been rumours doing the rounds that Aryan, who had a tiny role playing his dad’s toddler version in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, will be launched by godfather Karan Johar, soon, it seems that the only thing on Aryan’s mind right now is his education. We can see the influence of dad already, as he has always espoused the importance of academics and education.

industry overwhelmingly seems to prefer those from its own kin. Industry insiders defend this phenomenon by saying that regardless of the ease of entry, these star kids still have to prove themselves like any other actor or actress. While the debate will not be settled anytime soon, we bring to you celebrity kids that are already making the news!

NAVYA NAVELI NANDA Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter had a relatively low-profile childhood as she spent most of her time in Delhi where mum, Shweta Bachchan Nanda moved to after getting married. However the young girl was recently ‘introduced’ to society at the very exclusive ‘Debutante Ball’ and since then there has been a lot of interest around her, especially on social media. Navya, who attended the same school as Aryan Khan, often shares photos on her Instagram profile where she has been garnering a sizeable fan following. We wonder if the tall, dusky beauty will make a foray into Bollywood like the maternal grandparents and uncle, or is more inclined towards managing her father’s sprawling business in Delhi.

JHAANVI AND KHUSHI KAPOOR Ever since the legendary South Indian beauty, Sridevi, made a comeback into films, with English Vinglish, her daughters have often been spotted on the red carpet with her. Whether it is film premieres or Diwali parties, Jhaanvi and Khushi Kapoor (half-sisters of Arjun Kapoor) are frequently seen with their mom. With model-like physiques and such strong acting genes, we wouldn’t be surprised if Jhaanvi (and eventually Khushi too) makes her Bollywood debut sometime soon!

AARAV BHATIA (KUMAR)

IBRAHIM ALI KHAN Saif Ali Khan’s son from first wife, Amrita Singh, has grown up to be a dashing young man. Taking after his handsome father, Ibrahim looks all set to be a movie star already. He seems to have a particular fondness for Shah Rukh Khan’s dialogues though, and many of his ‘dub smashes’ have gone viral, with Shah Rukh himself also sharing a couple on twitter. Ibrahim definitely seems to be the most confident out of the lot. While elder sister, Sara, is more academically inclined and studying at Columbia University, Ibrahim has been in Mumbai living with his mom, Amrita Singh. He also shares a friendly camaraderie with step-mom, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and has been spotted holidaying with Saif and Bebo a few times. We’re waiting on tenterhooks to see when and how Ibrahim’s Bollywood career is launched!

Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s son, Aarav, had shied away from the limelight till quite recently but now appears to be more comfortable being in the spotlight. From attending his mother’s book launch, to walking the red carpet with his dad, it seems that Aarav is all set to brace the attention that comes with being the son of one of the biggest box office draws in the industry. Neither the parents nor the boy himself have ever mentioned a desire for the young Bhatia to be a part of Bollywood, but with movie star looks and a fully cinematic lineage (he is the grandson of Bollywood’s first superstar, Rajesh Khanna) it is not difficult to see him as one of the rising starts of the future.

Monochrome Silver Decadence

Is there anything more timeless and classic that a monochrome colour scheme for your home? Something about pairing simple black and white together creates a perfect canvas for you to add your own individuality, especially when paired with touches of silver elegance. For this week’s lifestyle special, we have once again welcomed the expert help of interior expert and owner of the much admired store Artz-I, Mohammed Rasul. Artz-i is a stylish new lifestyle and gift store which designs, manufactures and retails modern and traditional

high quality gifts, artworks and other fine products, including hand crafted items. Their merchandise includes tiles, calligraphy, ornaments, appliqué art, paintings, photography and wood carvings as well as gift cards, contemporary and classical household furnishings. Read on for a veritable wealth of ideas on how to utilise this simple colour palate to add a serious touch of intrigue to your home, with detailed patterns, unusual art and high-shine silver to give that final decadent touch.

A dining room decked out in black, white and silver is guaranteed to impress guests even more than your cooking at your next party. Pair black and white elements with softer grey furnishings for a stylish look, and don’t be afraid to include fresh flowers to a pop of inviting colour. Top the look off with high-shine serving dishes and wine bucket for a professional touch.

Monochrome and silver looks fantastically modern in a living area, and can still be a very sensible choice for families with children if darker furnishings are chosen, as shown here. Keep walls and floors light to avoid the room becoming too dark, and mix in geometric patterns to draw the eye to accent pieces such as cushions and rugs.

Proof that plain colours don’t have to be boring, this pretty set-up would look perfect in a dressing room or bedroom. Using lots of silver and mirrors along with lamps gives a brightening effect to even the darkest of corners, while plush fabrics and fresh white flowers add classic decadence.

Big and bold patterns can often look a bit ‘busy’ when in a multitude of colours, so take advantage of monochrome to show them off. We love this matching dresser and footstool set in black and white with silver decorations, which would look just as fantastic in a teenage bedroom as a stylish living room.

Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with this style, as keeping your colours simple means a lot of room to play with shapes and textures. Unusual pieces like this birdcage-style chair and distinctive lightfitting add interest, while an over-sized monochromatic photo is timeless and classic.

Vidya Balan “I need to feel the need to play a character, to live this person.”

Sujoy Ghosh’s upcoming compelling suspense thriller, TE3N (Translated: THR3E) will see award winning actress Vidya Balan on our screens for the first time this year. The film sees her join a seasoned cast of some of India’s most coveted acting talents – celebrated veteran, Amitabh Bachchan; golden boy of new age Indian cinema, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The three, screen powerhouses are united onscreen in a darkly atmospheric suspense thriller, set against a cryptic backdrop of Kolkata’s labrynthian by-lanes and alleyways. An Indian film for an international platform, Te3n has been creatively produced by Sujoy Ghosh, whose 2012 release, Kahaani, with Vidya, was

globally lauded by critics and audiences alike. Masters of their craft, Dasgupta and Ghosh have collaborated to deliver an authentic, nouveau noir thriller, combining cinematic artistry with a compelling narrative. A haunting soundtrack by composer Clinton Cerejo blends seamlessly with the mise en scene to further immerse audiences. We managed to catch Vidya ahead of the film’s release and talk about the film, her look in the film and what excites her about a film. We have missed you. We last saw you in your only release for 2016 Hamare Adhuri Kahani. You’ve TE3N coming up and Kahaani 2, can we see more of you in 2016? Oh, thank you! Yes, I’ve also got a

Marathi film in which I’ve done a special appearance [upcoming movie ‘‘Ek Albela’], so hopefully you won’t miss me again for a long, long time. What made you choose to do a guest appearance in TE3N? I think firstly, you know, I liked the story. So even though it was a smallish role and they were offering me a special appearance, I was eager to do it, one always wants to be part of a good film. And I felt the director, Ribhu Dasgupta, had a different approach to the story – I thought it was slightly different from the usual kind of thrillers. And thrillers are my favourite genre, so I’m always excited to do a thriller. And then of course Sujoy Ghosh and I were working together after six years after

Kahaani, and Amitabh and Nawazuddin are people I’ve worked with before, but you don’t leave an opportunity to work with them anyway! But there are lots of reasons why I did Te3n, more than three! [Laughter] Sorry, that’s a bad joke! It is a special appearance though, and when you see the film you’ll see that I’m not all over the film as much as I am in the trailer. Let’s call it a longish guest appearance! Let’s talk about your look in TE3N. Do you ever have a say in how your character is presented in the film? Yes, I definitely have a say in terms of when you read the character, you have a certain sense of the person. You would then discuss this with your director and the costume director, and then in varying degrees, the director has a vision of how the character will be styled and will look, and the costume designer and the actor will follow his lead. But there is scope for dialogue and discussion, and then we arrive at a final thing. But Ribhu has done this for all the characters in TE3N and I think he has managed to make it very, very real. And another reason I wanted to do the film was I’ve always coveted the cop uniform, but unfortunately I didn’t get to wear it! But you know, at that level, apparently a lot of female cops don’t really wear a uniform. And the hair needs to be tied up, and it’s a very practical, non-fuss look. Naturally everyone is excited to see

One always you and Mr Bachchan back on screen after your last successful film Paa. Do you ever feel awestruck when working alongside such legends as Amitabh Bachchan? Well you know, I’ve been a fan of his since I was a child, there are stories that my mom tells me that if his songs were shown on the television at dinner time then I wouldn’t eat! But thankfully for me, I think in front of the camera I just see that person as their character and not as the actor or in this case, the legend that he is. Also I think there should be huge, huge credit to him because for example in Paa, he was

un-recognisable which meant that I could definitely perform comfortably and easily with him. And in this again, when I saw him, it was a very different Mr. Bachchan than the Mr Bachchan I meet at social functions – it was the character John Biswas. So I think that helps transport me, and also audiences, into his world. And then you aren’t intimidated. What are the key factors you look at before agreeing to be part of a film? What excites you about a film? I think for me it has to grab me, instinctively. I need to feel the need to play a character, to live this person. Also very important is that I share the director’s vision, because I may like the character and I may like the story, but do I share the director’s vision? A good producer ensures that the film gets its dues, in the making and finalising and all of that. So I think there are a few considerations that I take into account, before I take part in a film. We’d like to wish you all the best for the film TE3N, and we’re looking forward to seeing more of you! Thank you!

#Instah t by AYESHA BABAR

We bring you the roundup of the trending Instagram posts from the fortnight. Definitely #InstaHOT, we say!

Bollywood seems to be having a rather busy summer, with stars taking holidays and movie promotions in full swing. Shah Rukh Khan was in London with wife Gauri and kids to attend the graduation ceremony of elder son, Aryan Khan. While Aryan finished school this summer and is now all set for college (off to the US, so we hear!), sister Suhana still has another year to go at the same school. The day was a double celebration for the Khans as it also happened to be Suhana’s birthday on the same day. Their mother, Gauri, shared this photo of Shah Rukh with the two and we couldn’t help but feel her sense of pride.

Aishwarya Rai is back from Cannes where she walked the red carpet as a L’oreal spokeswoman in addition to hosting a market screening for her latest film, Sarbjit. Seems like she has brought her fashion A-game back with her (thankfully, none of those Abujaani and Sandeep anarkalis!). She donned this gorgeous Naeem Khan gown for an awards function but her favourite accessory seemed to be husband, Abhishek Bachchan, who couldn’t help gushing over his beautiful wifey. We don’t blame you one bit, AB Baby!

Varun Dhavan and John Abraham are back with a bang with Dishoom. Directed by Varun’s elder brother, Rohit, the film promises to be a real commercial entertainer. This is Rohit’s second film after his debut, Desi Boys that had John Abraham and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles. Following in dad, David Dhavan’s, footsteps, this genre has so far seemed second nature to Rohit. Let’s see what the film has to offer!

London seemed to be the go-to place for Bollywood celebs this last fortnight, as many A-listers gathered to celebrate director, producer and talk-show host, Karan Johar’s birthday in the British capital. Karan held a bash at the exclusive Annabel’s club to bring his friends, including the Khans, Shweta Bachchan, Kareena and Saif among others, together. This selfie from the birthday totally gave us #squadgoals!

Talking about the youth brigade, Aditya Roy Kapur and Bollywood’s sweetheart Shradda Kapoor wrapped up the shooting of their next movie, OK Jaanu. Produced by Dharma, this film features Adi and Shradda as young lovers for a second time after their blockbuster hit Aashiqui 2. While the two are rumoured to have been in an on-off relationship ever since Aashiqui 2 came out, we are quite excited to see if the pair can repeat their magical chemistry at the box office again!

There has been much excitement around Parineeti Chopra’s comeback film ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. The film, which also stars actorsinger Ayushmann Khurana in the lead role, will be Parineeti’s first release in almost two years. After a short and sweet teaser announcement last year, Parineeti shared this behind the scenes fun photo from the film’s shoot. Looks like Parineeti and Ayushmann are all set to bring something interesting to our screens soon!

Deepika Padukone has been away from Mumbai for a couple of months now, shooting for her Hollywood debut, the XXX franchise. The star actress recently shared this photo from the set and we can’t get over how on-point she looks. From the all black everything attire to the makeup to the perfect body – is there anything that this woman cannot do?

Sonam

Kapoor by AYESHA BABAR

9

Actress Sonam Kapoor made waves at the recently concluded Cannes Film Festival. Critics could not stop raving about her red carpet gowns, which were all custom-made pieces by Ralph and Russo and her interesting makeup and hair choices. Travelling with her trusted makeup artist, Namrata Soni, Sonam delivered one fresh look after another. We bring you her most celebrated makeup look, which she wore to the AmFAR Gala reception which is one of the highlights of the film festival.

Look

As Sonam has confessed in the past, she does not have the best skin in the business and has to prep and moisturise it, especially when travelling. I would suggest those with similar problems use a facemask at home to take the dullness away before a big event. Choose a light – medium coverage foundation, building it up in areas where your skin tone is more uneven and letting your skin breathe overall.

Once you have moisturised your skin thouroughly, apply a primer down the centre of your face and across your forehead. In the summer months espeically, this will help the foundation adhere to the skin and prevent your t-zone from becoming an oil-field! Instead of her usual smoky eye, Sonam has gone for a wash of colour on her eyelids with a single colour – a yellow-based gold eyeshadow.

To create the shadowy wing that Sonam is sporting, use a liquid eyeliner to line the top lid and then go over that with black eyeshadow, winging the shadow at the outer corners. This creates a more subtle wing that complements the overall softness of the look. Finish the eyes with lining the waterline with a black eye-pencil.

For the lips, choose a soft pink colour that complements your skintone. Top it with a gloss in the same colour.

Avoid heavy contouring and instead of bronze tones, apply a pink blush to the apples of the cheeks, taking it towards your ears. For added oomph, take inspiration from Sonam’s hairdo and you are all set to be the belle of the ball yourself!

Ask Ayesha Ever wondered about how to carry off the latest beauty trend of the season? Or what products to use to make those dark circles disappear? Well, help is finally here. Send in your queries to our resident hair and makeup specialist Ayesha Babar to ayeshababarmakeup@gmail.com, and we will get you your answers!

Dear Ayesha, I really like wearing bright lipstick but often when I wear my lipstick it goes on my teeth, which can be awkward. Can you please suggest what I can do to stop it from going on to my teeth? (Tanzy, London) Ayesha Says:

A

Dear Tanzy, It can indeed be quite embarrassing when lipstick bleeds on to teeth and becomes even more prominent when it is a bright

colour. Before you start your makeup, exfoliate your lips and massage a balm into the lips. Line and fill your lips with a lip pencil of the same colour as your lipstick, or a neutral colour if you don’t have the same colour available. Apply the first layer of lipstick and then blot your lips using a clean paper towel. Then, apply a second layer of lipstick. Doing so, will not only stop your lipstick from bleeding out on to your teeth but will also make it last much longer.


Q

ASIAN STYLE MAGAZINE

Q A

Dear Ayesha, My hair tends to become very flat during the course of the day, no matter how I style it. What can I do to increase the volume in my

hair?

(Sophie K, London) Ayesha Says: Dear Sophie,

Voluminous hair is every woman’s envy! Depending on the texture of the hair, choose a shampoo that provides a deep clean. Clean hair provides lift from the root and volume that will last till your next wash. Also, keep your hair hydrated. It might sound surprising but oiling it before washing it will give it a deeper clean. There are a few other things to keep in mind that will help. When drying your hair, turn your head upside down, and then blow your hair on a medium setting. Change your parting often as having the hair parted the same way makes it flatter over time. Changing the part will ensure more volume on the crown.

Dear Ayesha,

My problem is rather embarrassing. I am 16 years old and have been suffering from body odour for a few years. I use a deodorant but still I would like some kind of a solution that will reduce it naturally. (Sana, Bradford)

A

Ayesha Says: Dear Sana,

You are not alone in this. Body odour is something that affects many people. Puberty and adolescence are especially difficult times as our bodies are undergoing hormonal changes, and one of the main changes that occurs during this time is that our body starts producing odour. The odour is usually caused by bacteria that grow in different areas on our body, especially the areas where we tend to sweat more. This is why the problem is usually worse in the warmer summer months. The key to minimising body odour is hygiene. Washing the affected areas daily will also help. Wearing natural fabrics such as cotton and silk instead of nylons and polyester allows the skin to breathe and reduces sweat and thus odour. For smell emanating from your underarms, take a piece of cotton wool and dab tea-tree oil daily. Tea-tree oil is extremely effective in getting rid of odour-causing bacteria. Mixing one tablespoon baking soda with one tablespoon of lemon juice and dabbing (not rubbing) it on your underarm area for a few minutes daily before you shower will also reduce odour considerably.

Varun Dhawan found underwear sequence in ‘Dishoom’ fun

Actor Varun Dhawan, who will be seen clad only in an underwear with his co-star John Abraham in their film “Dishoom”, says the sequence was “fun”, At the trailer launch of the film on Wednesday, Varun spoke about the underwear sequence, saying: “It was very good... It was ‘mast’ (fun). There was a good breeze, and John was there, so you get good inspiration. We were happy.” Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is also a part of the Rohit Dhawan directorial, shared that for the particular sequence, John and Varun had to undergo intensive workout sessions and were following a strict diet.

Raj Kundra rubbishes trouble with wife Shilpa rumours Businessman Raj Kundra has rebuffed the claims of ‘trouble in paradise’ in marriage with wife Shilpa Shetty. The 40-year-old co-owner of Super Fight League took to twitter to dismiss the claims that he has moved out of his family home in Juhu. Attaching a link to Pinkvilla’s report, Kundra tweeted “like seriously?? I better spend more time at home... whoops 1.30 am returning HOME

Here’s how Shahid scares his pregnant wife Mira Almost within a year of their ‘full of romance’ marriage, actor Shahid Kapoor managed to scare the hell out of his pregnant wife Mira Rajput.

When asked how Mira reacted after watching ‘Udta Punjab’, the 35-yearold revealed that she was sitting two inches away from him during the film’s screening, reports PinkVilla.

‘Udta Punjab’ , which revolves around drug abuse in the affluent north state of Punjab and how the youth have succumbed to it en-masse resulting in a socio-economic decline, also stars Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh.

Here is why Sanjay Dutt is working out in an enclosure enclosure Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is gearing up for his first film after being released from jail, the actor has been sweating it out as part of his prep for Siddharth Anand’s next. His character in the action flick requires him to perform commando- style stunts and the actor has been training in martial arts on the ground floor of his Pali Hill home. However, he seems to want to keep those rigorous sessions low- key. Dutt has now covered the boundary of his house with green cloth after a snap of him boxing recently did the rounds. But when he was recently clicked by the

It’s official: Opioid overdose caused Prince’s death

The Midwest medical examiner’s office has recently confirmed that Prince died of an opioid overdose. The single-page report, which was issued overnight, more than a month after the music superstar was found dead at his Paisley Park mansion, said Prince “self-administered fentanyl,” referring to a synthetic opioid many times more potent than heroin, News.com.au reported. The report, which was signed by Quinn Strobl, the office’s chief medical examiner, included only the manner and cause of death and the office said that all other medical examiner data is considered nonpublic under Minnesota state law. It also listed the clothing the pop star was wearing at the time of death: a black shirt and pants and a black cap. The 57-year-old musician’s death came less than a week after his plane made an emergency stop in Moline, Illinois, for medical treatment as he was returning from an Atlanta concert.

Amber Heard ‘still loves’ Johnny Depp Actress Amber Heard will reportedly not file a police report against estranged husband Johnny Depp because she “still loves” him.

However, sources close to the 52-yearold Depp have dismissed Amber’s apparent sympathy, insisting she deliberately timed her allegations to coincide with the release of his new movie “Alice Through the Looking Glass”, Sources said the 30-year-old actress “still which has tanked at the box office, taking just $65 million internationally loves” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” on its opening weekend, a figure even star and “doesn’t want to bury him” lower than was projected just for US with the allegations.

anything to go by, she wants to refrain from making a police report as she feels it would trigger an arrest and subsequent prosecution.

While Mrs. Khan looked her graceful best, the teenager who just celebrated his graduation ceremony with the family in London appeared to be nothing less than a star in the making. Though SRK is back in Mumbai, the mom and son duo seems to be having a barrel of fun.
