_____ Got Talent.

Imran Khan was smokin' hot at India's Got Talent where he and co-star Shruti Hassan promoted their film Luck. The guy's got his act together in a sharp, black suit, accented with a crisp button down with black buttons. Shruti, on the other hand, left much to be desired with her fashion choice for the event. It was so ... how do you say ... boring. A loose-fitting, tablecloth-like, shirt dress? Really? With the cute shoes and rock star cuff she's got on, I had hoped for something edgier. Perhaps next time.

Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, check out the desi flava on America's Got Talent (thanks, Manish!). Yes, it's a performance to "Jai Ho" and yes, the Slumdog craze is still going strong in the States. It was a pleasure to catch a desippearance on NBC. I still get thrilled whenever it happens! And admittedly, thanks to the powers of Slumdog, it seems to be happening more often! Anyway, back to the dance performance: I thought the movement was crisp and synchronized, but the choreography was totally uninspired. I know this is intended to be the Bollywood genre of dance, but c'mon guys. Give Farah Khan, et all credit - their choreography is usually amazing.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
