Scorching the ramp

Amrita Rao wowed the City of Joy as she became the showstopper for the grand finale at the Kolkata Fashion Week — Season 2. Amrita donned an outfit designed by Manish Malhotra. Walking along with her were actors Ronit Roy and Dino Morea.
Apparently, many designers are keen to tie-up with Miss Rao these days. A few months back, there were rumours about the growing friendship between Amrita and Priyanka Chopra and now, it’s incidental that Amrita will be featured in two leading beauty magazines on the cover of which Priyanka had appeared recently.
Is this filmy friendship here to stay? Only time will tell.

Paired after 38 years

Sanjay Sharma’s Dunno Y... Naa Jane Kyun not only marks the comeback of two sirens of yore — Zeenat Aman and Helen, it is also after 38 years that Zeenie is going to be paired with Kabir Bedi. The two did an advertisement for a soap way back in 1970 following which, they acted together in Hulchul in 1971. In this film, the duo meets after a gap of 20 years and in reality, they saw each other after 40 years. Director Sanjay needed a stylish and handsome actor to match up to Zeenat. And who better than Kabir Bedi who has been know as one of the most stylish actors ever? However, Kabir was himself apprehensive about doing a film as senior artistes do not get roles like they used to. But when he heard this script, he instantly liked the emotional role that he would be playing.
