Ashwin Mushran & Rebecca Maria Vaz
Have you seen Fashion? Well you know the funny guy who plays Priyanka Chopra’s gay best friend (he’s growing up to be the next Boman Irani in my opinion) got married last week over a heady mix of celebrations. Apart from having absolutely brilliant comic timing Ashwin Mushran is also quite the salsa star, so of course his wedding extravaganza featured a most unique Salsa-Sangeet!
Perhaps you’ve seen them, there are a whole bunch of die hard salsa fans including Sophie Chaudry, Ishita Arun & Suneeta Rao in Mumbai led by Kaytee Namgyal from the Salsa India Dance Company who hang out at Zenzi (Bandra) on Sunday evenings – and now Dragonfly (Nariman Point) on Wednesday’s too. At the wedding they pulled off an extraordinary Bollywood inspired medley with some killer Latin dance moves along with a good measure of desi jhatkas to boot!
If you get a chance, swing by this week to Dragonfly and watch them in action. (Whether you fancy a twirl yourself or just want to watch some seriously talented social spinning – everyone’s invited.)
We all have our favourite thing to do when it rains, have you ever wondered how the glitterati like to pass the time when it pours?
Raveena Tandon: Take a long drive, enjoy songs on romance and the rain, have hot coffee and bhutta, drive out to the countryside and enjoy the rare greenery…
Chetan Hansraj: Enjoy a nice cup of hot tea with steaming hot bhajiyas with fried green chillis. It goes perfect with the rain!
Arshiya Eappan: sit at home snuggled under a comforter and watch a good movie with Rij. If I’m fortunate enough and have time off I’d love to go to my house in khandala and enjoy the rain there.
Archana Puran Singh: Walk on the mall road back home in Mussoorie, or on the beach in Madh island (my home in Mumbai.) Earlier I would go for a drive but after environmental awareness and to curtail my carbon footprint drives have been replaced by walks!
Shveta Salve: Sit by a quaint little café with a really nice book or just go for a swim!
Yudhistir Urs: Go for a run in the rain and sit by some seaside place watching the ocean go mad. It would also help if I had some good company once in a while.
Milind Soman: Run in the rain at night, sit on the beach and watch the sea or else trekking in the Sahyadris.
Simone Singh: (If work schedules permit) Fahad and I like to escape to Goa in the rains. It’s a much more enjoyable experience outside the city.
Sunita Rao: Sing.
Nikhil Chinapa: drink adrak chai and watch movies! And if I can manage it adrak chai in Goa, that’s exactly what I’m doing right now.
Anish Trivedi: Listen to jazz. Smoke a cigar. Drink an old whisky.
Tupur Chaterjee: Sit at home, relax, drink tea and feel the rain mist on my face. I really love the smell of rain soaked soil.
