Happy Birthday, AB Sr.!

The Big B celebrated his 68th birthday in style and with the usual media frenzy. For starters, his tv show Kaun Banega Crorepati threw him a bash, and the Bachchans et all later celebrated at the Bachchan residence, Jalsa. Honestly, it does seem like the Bachchans themselves appeared on their driveway for the sole purpose of waving to cameras and being photographed. I guess the Bachchan Machine lives by the saying "no publicity is bad publicity"!You'll notice between events that it appears as though La Rai is paying tribute to her FIL by color coordinating with him. During the daytime, I have no issues with either AB Sr. or La Rai's choice of attire. Both look crisp. But who let AB Jr. out of the house looking like a reject from the sets of High School Musical?! Dress your age, man!Again in the evening, the Bachchan Machine geared up for some family photos on their driveway in classic style. Man do these guys love posing together! They all look fantastic. But where is poor Shweta Nanda and her hubby? Anyway, La Rai and AB Sr. are color coordinated again. It looks like La Rai is slipping back into her favorite pastel colored chudidaar-kurta rut. The silhouette does look great on her so I can't really quibble with wearing what works. Photos: getty.

Is it just me or does she wear the same kind of kurta churidarr combo 90% of the time when shes photographed!?
Why must she always look like an aunty? She looks so damn good in western wear why doesnt she embrace it?

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…

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.

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.
