Dutta is currently shooting the last few sequences of his second war film “LoC”.

Jackets are a rage
Tribune News Service
Baby jackets — teeny-weeny toppers watching out for piercing cold, not biting stares — are a rage amidst the damsels of the world. Having doubts? Go to Cheryl's residence. As the clock hanging on the poster covered wall announces the time for bidding good-bye to the cozy comfort of the bedroom, the under-grad switches on the high-wattage bulb over the dressing table.

Navtej Singh Johar performs Bharatnatayam at Tagore Theatre Discovering continuity of dance tradition
Chandigarh, November 26

This issue has never been emotionally coherent to the man, who has gone out in the open to launch a crusade of sorts against “cultural chauvinism” in dance. That explains his promising growth through the three decades that he practiced bharatanatyam, a form with which he struck an instant affiliation.
