Foreign touch
There is a reason why Falguni and Shane Peacock are opening a store in New York, why Jai Parvesh travel across the US holding fashion and trunk shows, why Kanika Saluja shuttles so often between India and the West or why city based fashion designer duo, Suneet-Puneet, is flooded with orders from abroad during this season.

No pun intended
He cannot sit still--that's what his whats app status usually says. And he makes sure that he justifies his own status. Actor-singer Sippy Gill is a workaholic from the word go. Give him plenty, and he still longs for more.

Saucy seduction!
When I'm saddled with leftover bits of cake, I'm always inclined to give it a facelift. I like to serve them with a sauce, maybe some nuts and chopped seasonal fruit. I know a scoop of ice cream marries well with cake but that itself is ordinary fare, married to mediocre imagination.

Second innings
After completing the shoot of the first season of TV series 24, Anil Kapoor is set to soon start with the second season. The aim is to create a better product, says the actor-producer.

Using more than one language in a movie is not really a new thing. Blending two languages in one movie is now a regular fare in Bollywood. Hindi films are dubbed in various other languages to appeal to the local audiences in specific parts of the country. But the upcoming Dimple Kapadia starrer What The Fish has taken the importance of incorporating varied languages too literally.
