The voice lives on...
The voice behind eternal hits Pyaar hua ikraar hua hai, Ay mere pyare watan, Ay mere bichhade chaman; Zindagi kaisi hai paheli, Aye meri zohra jabeen is no more. As Manna Dey, one glorious name that topped the playback singing scene in Indian cinema, breathed his last on early Thursday morning, his admirers couldn't miss him more. Here's catching up with some in Chandigarh.





Oz Oomph!
She couldn't believe her ears when Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh complimented her. "He said I look like a mermaid," Erin Victoria Holland, Miss World Australia 2013, runs her hands through her blonde hair. "I have heard this compliment once or twice before, but coming from SRK was really special," she smiles. The brand ambassador for AECC (Australian Education & Career Consultants), this Australian beauty was promoting the Chandigarh branch on her first visit. Petite and pretty, Erin looked a million bucks in the tangy orange outfit.

Screen of his own
If variety be the essence of life, the name would certainly be Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Ever since his talent was truly discovered in year 2012, the gifted actor has not only been going from strength to strength but also essaying roles each dramatically different from the other.

Bachelor’s day out
Never mind the influx of reality shows, there's no discouraging the aspirants. Eliminations notwithstanding, there's hardly anything to regret about. Apart from a close shot at fame, there is a lot to look back at-an experience, an adventure, an exploit. "I think one of the biggest advantages of being on the show was that I overcame my fear of heights. They made me bungee jump twice because for the first time, the cameras didn't roll," Rohit Sachdeva, 26, just back from a stint at The Bachelorette India, is glad for the entire grind of having been at the show, including the auditions.
