20 Photos That Show 80s Bollywood Was Always Met Gala Ready

Published

on

Like always, the Met Gala saw some fashionably fierce looks this year too, as celebrities presented their interpretation of the theme, ‘Camp’. 

And looking at the outfits one thing became glaringly clear – Bollywood of the 80s could easily be the inspiration for the MetGala of 2019:

1. For starters, we’re pretty sure Rekha would have rocked multiple costume change like no one’s business. 

2. Mithun Da has always been a trendsetter. 

3. And no one does a ‘period look’ better than him. 

4. But can anyone really shine brighter than Govinda and Juhi’s metallic styling?

5. You don’t have to explain to Bollywood what arriving in style is all about. 

6. Pretty sure 80s Bollywood invented monochrome.

7. And don’t even get us started on outrageous hairdos. 

8. Also, move over MetGala cuz this here is the perfect bodysuit.

Rishi Kapoor says he won’t return to India for birthday

Published

on

A day after actor Shakti Kapoor said on a comedy show that Rishi Kapoor will return to India in August end, Rishi has reportedly said that he will not be able to be in the country for his birthday on September 4.

A Mumbai Mirror report quoted Rishi as saying, “I have to be here for 11 months, so I will not be back before the end of August. It’s been a difficult time, very taxing, but Neetu (wife), and my children (Ranbir and Riddhima) have been very supportive. I am grateful to everyone. I am waiting to come back and raring to get going. I will plan my return five-six weeks after my last treatment. It is called consolidation or pushback, whereby I will have to undergo chemotherapy to ensure that the ailment does not return. This is the second time I am going through the treatment. I am hoping that I can plan an end-August return but all this talk that I will be back in early September for my birthday, is again nothing but speculation.”

Shakti, who celebrates his birthday just a day before Rishi does, told Hindustan Times, “My and Chintu’s birthday is just a day apart and we have been celebrating together and cut cakes from the times when Raj Kapoor [Rishi’s father] was alive and we would be shooting in Chembur,” says Shakti, sharing his recent conversation with Rishi.

Rishi, 66, who is currently in New York undergoing cancer treatment, told the tabloid in detail that he still has to undergo treatment. “On the subject of my health, thanks to the prayers and good wishes of my family, friends and fans, I am perfect now. The cancer is in remission, but I am still under treatment. I have a crucial meeting with the doctors today at 10.45 am, there’s one treatment still left to be done. The problem is not the treatment but the reaction time. There is a six-week gap between one treatment and the next when all you can do is eat, shop, watch movies, live a normal life which I would rather do at home than here in New York. It’s been nine months and 16 days—I know since I have been counting the days—that I have been away. I really miss home,” he said.

He also talked about getting diagnosed for cancer and said, “When I first came here, everyone was worried for me. The problem was detected when I was shooting in Delhi and was required to dye my hair white. I was told to immediately rush to the Sloan Kettering Hospital. I came here with my hair still dyed white. When word got around that Rishi Kapoor had gone to New York for some kind of medical examination, rumour spread that I was so unwell that my hair had turned white overnight. To counter this, whenever friends of mine came to see me, they posted pictures so people could see what Rishi Kapoor really looked like. Thankfully, my health started improving, week after week, month after month. I had lost 26 kg as I had no appetite for the first four months. Now, I’ve gained seven-eight kg. I don’t want to look too lean, but I haven’t gone back to my original self either. Thank God for that.”

He also talked about how supportive his family has been: “All my siblings, my children and Neetu in particular, who has been like a solid rock, have been around me, supporting me through all this. Right now, my daughter and grand-daughter are with me. Ranbir keeps coming every five-six weeks. I am overjoyed by all the love and concern, the solidarity of my family. Here I have to make a special mention of my niece Natasha and my elder sister Ritu Nanda who is also here for the same reason. They were our anchors who kept Neetu and me going. When your anxiety is so high you need this kind of support and such motivational people around.”

Reacting to reports of him being upset with producers of Jhootha Kahin Ka, a film that released recently and featured Rishi, he said that he is upset that “nonsense is being written”. “In the last 10 months, I have not spoken to anyone from the media, though they have always supported me. I agree with Kangana Ranaut that some people write anything and as a result, serious journalists get drawn into the controversy. When did I say I was upset? I have not been in the country for months. This is not done, it tarnishes the credibility of other journalists who write and report well. Though I do not entirely agree with what Kangana said, on this point anyone can get upset.”

Priyanka Chopra, Joe Jonas celebrate Sophie Turner’s Game of Thrones Emmy nomination

Published

on

Actor Priyanka Chopra has joined the world in celebrating her sister-in-law and actor Sophie Turner’s first ever Emmy nomination. Sophie was nominated in the Supporting Actress Drama category for her role in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Priyanka shared two pictures of herself and Sophie on her Instagram Stories, writing, “Congratulations to all the Emmy nominees this year, but especially to…you, @sophiet! We love you and are so incredibly proud of you #JSisters.” Priyanka also gave a special shout-out to Rachel Broshanan of Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Milo Ventimiglia of This Is Us, Viola Davis for How to Get Away With Murder, Jimmy Kimmel for Jimmy Kimmel Live, James Corden for The Late Late Show with James Corden, Laverne Cox for Orange Is the New Black, Netflix’s Queer Eye and Beyonce Knowles Carter for her film Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé.

Sophie’s singer husband Joe Jonas also congratulated her. “Emmy nominated @sophiet I am so incredibly proud of you,” he wrote with a photo of the two, sharing it on his Instagram stories. Nick Jonas also congratulated her on Instagram.

Sophie is nominated in the Supporting Actress Drama category with three other Game of Thrones co-stars — Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey and Maisie Williams. The show also led the pack with a record-breaking 32 nominations, the most ever by a drama series in a single year.

Emilia Clarke was nominated in the Lead Actress Drama category while Kit Harington was nominated in Lead Actor Drama category. Actors Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage were also nominated for Supporting Actor Drama.

Sophie played Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones for 10 years and eight seasons. The actor was 14 when she started filming the show in 2010. “When you’re starting your career at a young age, you’re forced to grow up much faster. Also, playing a character like Sansa and having to endure all the things she did, toughens you up,” Turner, 23, told Psychologies magazine.

Sophie recently tied the knot with her boyfriend and singer Joe Jonas in France. The wedding was attended by Priyanka and her husband Nick Jonas.
