I don’t understand why media is swooning over Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s red-carpet moment on the Opening Day at Cannes Film Festival 2011. Okay the one-shoulder Elie Saab gown was beautiful but didn’t look great on her. I think Ash looked like an ‘Auntie ji’! I guess she wore the gown that had a flaring out layer at the hip to kind of take away the attention from her derriere, which I think looked really big. Even the Cummer (Waist) is like a Kamra (Room). And what about the folds on the under-arm and sagging back??? She’s really become like those heavy and busty South Indian actresses. Salma Hayek post her pregnancy looked hot and Uma Thurman, who is much older than our Ash looked chic.
Saif Ali Khan was royally ignored. As customary, even his name wasn’t announced as he walked down the red-carpet in a Tom Ford suit and not a single flash-bulb flashed. Really sad dude. I mean even Minissha Lamba dressed in a Gauri & Nainika gown had her paparazzi moment but Saif had none. I think Saif Ali should have done some preparation like hiring a high-flying publicist and stuff. Chivas Regal didn’t do any of it. I am sure the paparazzi took him to be a waiter or a random escort as he hurriedly walked down the red-carpet, unrecognised.
Danny Boyle, who directed the films “Slumdog Millionaire” and “Trainspotting,” will be the artistic director of the opening ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012. Boyle’s team also includes filmmaker Stephen Daldry.
What does Boyle plan to show the world for opening ceremony of the London Summer Olympics in 2012? Boyle gave an insight of his vision. Boyle said that the ceremony will feature plenty of pop and rock music from Britain’s greatest musical acts. He also plans to highlight British films. Winning acts from British reality television talent competitions could also have a role in the celebration. Acknowledging that it would be difficult to top the splendor of the Beijing spectacle, Boyle is opting for intimacy over extravagance. The ceremony will take place at the 80,000-capacity Olympic Stadium in Stratford, east London, on July 27, 2012.
Guess we could have got Mani Ratnam to do the Opening Ceremony of Commonwealth Games in Delhi this October. But on seconds thought, I would rather say NO. Ratnam’s Raavan is such a dud. Wonder why he made it??? And Ash looks like a total Auntie ji and Abhishek…well his turmeric smeared face reminds me of a Bengali marriage custom where the bride and groom are smeared with turmeric.
