Many of fashionscandal.com readers have fed me with history of Cultured Nawaab-Saif Ali Khan Pataudi’s brawls. I knew about Saif’s brawl at 32nd Milestone, a nightclub in Delhi way back in 1994. Saif Ali Khan got involved in a brawl with youngsters on the dance floor of Fireball, the discotheque. The youths were drunk and reportedly upset, when the girl accompanying them was wooed by Saif to dance with him. Saif sustained cuts on the forehead and received six stitches.
Paris and Eatprayshop, two readers of the blog gave me the links that reported about Saif Ali Khan Pataudi’s brawl in a bar in New York. This was in 2006 and the brawl was reported in New York Post and Saif threatened to sue the newspaper but eventually never did. The links are below for your benefit:

So I remember it, and this whole thing seemed like deja vu- http://www.bollywhat-forum.com/index.php?topic=13162.135;wap2
The Day 1 at Couture Week had Sabyasachi Mukherjee showcasing his collection. His signature look was extended in his couture collection where Sabyasachi extensively used Bhagalpur and Murshidabad Silks. Intricate tapestry work, ornate embellishment with pearls and dori embroidery on voluminous kalidar lehengas sure would allure the bride-to-be(s). Loosely woven plain lehenga with gold sequined borders and sheer net lehengas paired with embroidered angarkhas were perfect juxtaposition of minimalist and maximalist look. I just felt Sabyasachi could have edited his collection and made it crisper.
Manish Malhotra’s collection was supposedly inspired by Spanish culture but besides a tiered flowing ensemble replicating the ones that Flamenco dancers wear, I did not find any such Spanish element. My expectations were higher for a Couture collection. I am not sure what Manish showcased could be really called Couture.
