    Ever since, we told you that Rani Mukherjee who was set to walk the Cannes red carpet, has been replaced by Miss India Kanishtha Dhankar we had been keeping a look out for what she would be wearing on the big day.

    We what the ace designer Sabhyasachi would deck her in. We weren't disappointed at what we saw. Femina has more pictures -to view click here.

    Dressed in a "Madonna-meets-Maharani Gayatri Devi", Kanishtha literally made heads turn. She walked the red carpet with Sabyasachi Mukherjee for Chivas.

  • Mandira on motherhood

    Long before IPL and cheerleaders happened, there was one woman who is credited with bringing glamour to cricket — at least in India. Mandira Bedi.

    With her noodle strap blouses and plunging necklines, she added that dash of Bollywood glamour to cricket. Trust me — even though not many will openly admit — we were to an extent ready to put up with her ignorance of the game in the initial years; for the sake of her glam quotient.

    Mandira is glamorous even now. In a different way. Glowing as NDTV puts it in her new avatar. A new avatar? In case you didn't know, Mandira is taking time off because she is pregnant after 12 years of marriage.

    So, you may say, how come she is in the news? Stroll over to your nearest news agent, leaf through the People magazine and you will see that she has given an exclusive interview to the mag. Click here for photo and excerpt of the interview.

    In the interview, she says that she thinks she will be the 'softie mom.' We wait.

  • Minissha Lamba detained

    Minissha Lamba is back from her 'oh — so — brief' outing to Cannes and she has run into trouble. A lot of trouble by the look of things.

    Here is what PTI has to say - Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba , who walked the red carpet at Cannes last week, was detained by the Customs at the international airport here for not declaring diamond jewellery worth over Rs 50 lakh, a senior official said.

    26-year-old Minissha Lamba, who landed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport here from Cannes, was crossing the green channel when she was intercepted by the customs officials.

    While checking her luggage, she was found to be carrying jewellery worth over Rs 50 lakh, the officer said. She was kept in detention for several hours. But the airport episode was not the beginning of her troubles. One of her bags was stolen in Nice, France.

    "Disaster has struck. A baggage of mine has been stolen at Nice Airport. I can't believe something like this has happened," she tweeted. "Even with two

  • Is Shilpa Shetty pregnant?

    Shilpa Shetty has sure been keeping a low profile this IPL season. And that is something which is so unlike her. So, when Mid-Day came up with the report that Shilpa had sprained her neck due to excess travel, we were slightly suspicious.

    Shilpa has time and again proclaimed her love for her team and cricket. We just couldn't make two and two add up to four. Something kept nagging us. We wondered if it was because of Liz Hurley. And we were not very surprised when we read the Times of India report today morning which said that Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty have something other than Rajasthan Royals' victories this IPL to cheer for. The couple, who tied the knot after a two year long courtship on November 22, 2009, is ready to welcome a new member in their family.

    Shilpa has been quoted as saying 'I'm desperate to start a family. I just love children, and we've a beautiful readymade nursery (in the new house). I want at least two children.'

    We just hope her dreams come true.
