The substitute for ghaghra with sahara pants and fitted tops was elegant and neat. The ghaghra pants and skirts had detailed embroidery work towards the hemline. The saris and ghaghra cholis had a lot of embellishment and blings that added grace and style to the attire. With a blend of silk, nets and georgettes, Malhotra played with different collars and cuts that gave the clothes an interesting look.

Film review: Raaz 3 - better keep this secret
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
Believe it or not, Bollywood is still making films about black magic, evil spirits and holy spirits and the war between evil and holy spirits. Raaz 3, in essence, is about this war between the spirits and how religion is the only force that is capable of winning this hypothetical battle. The film’s plot is filled with clichés. Among the most disturbing clichés that Raaz 3 reinforces is regarding the innate negativity of women; the other adage that women themselves are their biggest enemies becomes true after considering the fact that a female writer has written the story of this film that so unabashedly berates women. Don’t be surprised if shots and even complete scenes in Raaz 3 look a bit too familiar. It’s not you, it’s Vikram Bhatt who has copied, or as the Bhatt’s would say “been inspired by”, entire scenes from films like Arachnophobia, It, Final Destination and The Ring. The concept of Raaz 3 is also “inspired by” or rather is an “Indiani ...

Exploring the box office journey of Priyanka Chopra Part I
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
First things first - There is a bad news and there is a good news. First the bad news. In her nine year long career that started in 2003 and resulted in 30 outings as the leading lady, Priyanka Chopra's success rate has been just around 50%. And now the good news. Despite a career that has seen a constant flip-flop ever since she first came into limelight with Andaaz, her first flick as a quintessential Bollywood heroine, Priyanka today finds herself in the list of top Bollywood actresses. What has only made this journey special is the fact that, while her box office journey has been eventful (to put it mildly), the performer in her has seen a constant growth with every passing year. Simply put, if someone would have remarked nine years ago that the girl who was playing a second fiddle to Preity Zinta [The Hero] would one day walk away with murder after killing her seven (or were they actually six?) husbands [7 Khoon Maaf], it would have met with a mocking response of 'Oh really!' ...

'Essence of yoga lies in sincerity, not commercialisation'
The Express Tribune Blogs - almost 5 years
NEW DELHI: Yoga is not boring and one can do it anywhere – from a construction site to a spiritual environment, says noted exponent Deepika Mehta, clearing myths about the routine, adding that it has transformative powers. “There are so many misconception about yoga like doing yoga is boring, takes time to show result, meant for older people and is not a form of fitness,” Mehta told IANS. She is currently hosting Yoga City on NDTV Good Times and says that through the show she wants to clear misconceptions about the form. “I will try my best to inspire people about the transformative powers of yoga as it has given me so much in my own life. I was convinced to do the show because I believe that people in cities need this ancient practice of yoga the most. The concept of the show proves that yoga can also be done at a construction site and not specifically in a spiritual environment,” added the 34-year-old. Quite a few celebrities like Lara Dutta ...

Housefull 2: Old recipe, new spices
The Express Tribune Blogs - almost 5 years
KARACHI / LAHORE:  Despite being an underdog in the league of upcoming young directors, Sajid Khan has still managed to gain recognition in B-town through his stale sense of humour which he displays at award show and his trying-too-hard and almost-there films. Sajid’s films like Hey Baby and Housefull belong to the pool of supposedly comedy films that fail to impress us. Although, Hey Baby wasn’t that bad of a film, it wasn’t original either. Housefull, a film that starred comedy king Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmuk, Lara Dutta and Deepika Padukone, on the other hand, was all about hot girls, good-looking men, beautiful beaches and occasional humour — a formula that earned a decent response at the box office in 2010. With its sequel however, Sajid has multiplied the same formula and sprinkled it with a few good item numbers. In addition to Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh, Housefull 2 stars John Abraham, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez and Zarine Khan. ...
