(That’s “Hello” in Zulu by the way.) So Mumbai just got itself an Indo-Afro Restaurant called “Ubuntu” and lounge and Bar called “Marimba.”

FYI Ubuntu is the African counterpart of Om and Marimba, is a musical instrument which adds a romantic quality to African music.

Spotted GJ, aka Geet/Gita Jivan (the owner, how adorable and oh-so-slightly goofy is her costume?!) food critic Rashmi Uday Singh, Alyque Padamsee, tele stars Alex and Shweta Keswani, Actor and model Aryan Vaid, the illustrious Mr. Pervez Damania, models  Hazel, Gazel, Konkona, Talat & Bina Aziz, Anil Dharkar, Timmy Narang, Naved Jaffrey, Gary Richardson (wearing what he must have assumed to be the dress code – an animal print tie) and Cindy Khajol in an animal print backless dress. Um… apologies to PETA, although I’m sure they meant well.)

(From the several oddly attired models the ultimate fashion victim award goes hands down to Gazel here who appears to have taken her role (given her name) a little too seriously. Also the ultra red lipstick is a little too vamp(ire-ish) no? Even Consul General of South Africa, Ms. Busi Kuzwayo attended the opening on Friday where South African drummers from the Drum Café drummed up a delight (I’ve tried the Drum Café workshop by the way SO FUN, do it do it!)

Make up that wants you to “Be Yourself.” (Eh?)

Actress Rukhshar with "a friend"

Elder Health Care Ltd. , a leading manufacturer and marketer of self care products run by (the TV actor) Anuj Saxena (really? A bow-tie?!) launched the German cosmetic brand called ‘BeYu’ at a fashion show at Sahara Star, Mumbai last night. A range of mineral make up, lipsticks, foundations, eye shadows, mascaras, eye liners and nail enamels which all encourage 25 to 40 year old women (and perhaps some experimental men) to “Be Yourself” hence BeYu. (Ironic isn’t it?)  The press note stressed that this is a product for “the independent, broad minded woman who is confident with a mind of her own.” (This reminds me of a line from Zoolander (I think I explained why I use this movie all the time), “Do you understand that the world does not revolve around you… and your “do whatever it takes, ruin as many people’s lives… so long as you can make a name for yourself as a journalist… no matter how many friends you lose… or people you leave dead and bloodied along the way… just so long as you can make a name for yourself as a journalist… no matter how many friends you lose… or people you leave dead and bloodied and dying along the way?”)

Anyway this time the focus was on the faces (instead of the bods) of models like Anupama Verma, Fluer Xavier, Nehtra Raghuraman, Alicia Raut, Simran Kaur Mundi and Aryan Vaid (ooh I wonder how Aryan and Anupama are getting on after their Big Boss romance that the world watched unfold and which lasted just about 0.3 seconds post them being voted off the show!) The evening’s showstopper was Udita Goswami, while Anusha Dandekar sizzled through her performance (I love love love her blazing star-belted red mini dress) Spotted: Arjan Bajwa-of “Fashion” film fame, Lalit-music composer, Pervez Damania (who’s going to back at the Sahara Star hotel Mumbai tonight to launch their new Lebanese restaurant), Ronit Roy with wife Neelam, Barkha Bisht & Indraneil, Ruksar, Deepshikha, Apoorva with wife Shilpa Agnihotri and Mrinalini Sharma.

Take a look at the Aryan and Anupama Big Boss romance and tell me if you think it was a) real-life romance or b) reel-life romance (aka strategy to stay in the game!)
