Think Pink!

Ladies (and gents too!), October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the States. I don't know for sure, but I believe many other countries are also marking October as BCAM. If any of you know of goings on in the Desh and would like to share, please do write in! I know I don't need to tell you, but this is one helluva worthy cause! Actress and model, Lisa Ray, is a cancer survivor herself. Throughout her battle with cancer, she was very candid about the disease and its toll on her both physically and emotionally. As a survivor, she is a tireless crusader for breast cancer awareness and fundraising for a cure! She was absolutely radiant at a recent breast cancer awareness event in Mumbai - hence the hot pink. It's a pretty fantastic color at baseline, but as a symbol of the fight against breast cancer, we love it even more! We here at desipolitan wish Lisa well in her endeavours and certainly hope to see her return to films in the future. "Shabash" for all your efforts in this arena, Lisa! Remember to wear pink this month, everyone! Photos: getty.

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.
