At peace
In the city, Shamita Shetty talks about the role of spirituality in her life & much more
I am reading some scripts these days. I don't want to do just about any movie. As an actor, I want to experiment with roles…ask any actor (not the happening ones, of course) about their upcoming projects, these are the standard answers that 'invariably' come up time and again.

Fashion her way
No matter what brand she sports, no matter what designer outfit she flaunts, no matter how she does her hair, what accessory she carries, Amisha Patel's design sense never seems to go down well with the fashion critics. However, this does not deter this gossamer skin actor to wear her heart on her dresses.

Rakshanda Khan Of many facets
Handling celebrities and their tantrums is not an easy task
First it is modelling, then veejaying, then television and finally movies. This is the standard route every celebrity eventually takes. But exceptions cannot be overlooked and a little deviation in this route is acceptable. Television actor Rakshanda Khan too has taken a detour. Instead of the natural progression from television to films, she has taken up a different path and a new role - she is busy handling work of her event management company 'Celebrity Locker'.

Changing hues
Nowadays, exotic flowers are a hot favourite as gifts for your loved ones
We all like the pretty flowers blooming around us. Remember that tree laden with yellow flowers, which hang like a bunch of grapes? But how often have you wondered that these can be an excellent choice as gifts rather than the roses and carnations?

Horror tales

Picks & piques
Prakash Jha's much-awaited Rajneeti is in the theatres and hopes are flying high already. Kites has become an almost forgotten chapter and it's now time for the new release on the block to prove its mettle at the box office. The alleged Rs 63 crore price tag for the film will, in fact, be a major hurdle to cross. Initial trailers have generated audience interest though. The path is clear of all obstacles, yet will the single horse run away a true winner? Only the audience can tell for sure. As far as aesthetics go, Rajneeti is a commendable effort and needs to be seen!
