So Russel Peters was on fire on Monday night in Mumbai. The best part was he ripped into three non-descript Bollywood personalites in the front row. A producer for the film “Contract” the struggling actor Mazhar Khan who’s only film “Wanted” is his grand accomplishment in the last 10 years and non other than the prodigal child Sikandar Kher.
Sammera Reddy revealed that she had been playing poker with Russel and his crew rthe night before when Sikandar showed up and cleaned them out. So apparently Russel got his own back at the gig (although unanimously, people who I know, who know Sikander, think he’s had it coming a long time!)
Monday night (post the Russel Peters show in Mumbai) Risha Acharya is hosting an after party at his nightclub ‘Play’ for the funnyman himself thanks to their mutual friend Sameera Reddy. (Turns out Sameera and Russel are pretty tight and she’s one of the few Bollywood Belle’s with a sense of humor anyway!) Patch that in with Rishi, who’s always looking for an excuse to throw a party and “somebody’s gonna get high!”
So this is my all time favourite Peters gag. Check it out! You kill me? I kill me!
Day 1: backstage was abuzz bright and early. Shantanu & Nikhil and their gorgeous creations opened the week. Certain ‘so called’ stars were thrusted upon them but luckily for them Sameera Reddy didn’t fit into their outfit and Neha Uberoi was late~

But the brother duo were only too happy as their clothes didn’t need stars or even jewellery to complement them. Seriously, their clothes are celebrities in themselves. Their show started on time and this situation was the perfect example as to why we models are the only ones who should stick to the ramp. We’re professional, always on time, and fit into everything!
Meanwhile, a couple of girls who can actually be given due credit turned up on time for Narendra Kumar’s show. Priyanka Chopra and Mughda Godse. These girls have been models before and are even more familiar now with how the industry works as they’ve slipped into their characters for their film ‘Fashion’.
We joked, laughed and chatted backstage like one big family. Priyanka was ready on time and hung out with us, warm and friendly like she’s always been – that’s what I call being professional and humble.
Shamita's Peacock Pick
The last show for Day 1 was Shane & Falguni Peacock. Their collection was true to the upcoming Spring/Summer trend – colourful and non-coordinated. Young, but with a hint of vintage style and very funky, perfect for ‘spendthrifts’.
Tired and hungry we all made our way to Olive for a big, big dinner. Who says models don’t eat?
