Heeramandi craze! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's sister-in-law stuns in viral pic

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s first web series, 'Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar,' is now on Netflix. The show is filled with stunning sets, beautiful songs, and exquisite costumes and jewelry, all showcasing Bhansali’s signature style.  Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's sister-in-law stuns in viral recreation           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Shrima Rai 🧿 | Beauty Fashion Momlife (@shrimarai) Like many others who are recreating its songs and dance sequences, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s sister-in-law, Shrima Rai, couldn't resist dressing up in the Heeramandi style, and her photos are absolutely breathtaking. Shrima Rai wrote, "What would you name my character?” while sharing her recreation.  “I personally loved Heeramandi on Netflix and I am looking forward to the next season. My favourite character was Bibbijaan by Aditi Rao Hydari and uff the Queen Manisha Koirala,” she further penned.  About the fashion in 'Heeramandi' Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for the opulence and grandeur he portrays on screen. His latest venture, Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, brought out the very best from renowned designers Rimple and Harpreet. Having previously worked together on Padmavat and created magic, they truly are the dream team. Recently, Rimple and Harpreet have been dissecting the various looks from Heeramandi. One of the characters who had a big impact on the audience was Richa Chadha as Lajjo. She especially left an impression with a heartbreaking dance number 'Masoom Dil Hai Mera'. It's only fitting that we get into the details of this ensemble. The designer duo labelled this look, "Ensnared by the coils of the most vicious malady- Unrequited Love, Lajwanti (Lajjo) @therichachadha , Mallikajaan’s foster daughter dances her swan song before her untimely demise." Explaining the ensemble, the caption read, "She (Richa) wears a deep blue French chiffon kalidar paired with an earthy red silk coaty (gilet), a rust brocade pyjami and a gold hued jaali dupatta for her finale mujra. We chose this particular shade of ultramarine blue (which we had to ultimately paint by hand to get the cloudy tone right) as we intuitively felt that it resonated with the intense pathos of the state of her opium infused delusions and the ill-fated end of the character’s narrative arc as well as how the colour would blend in and also contrast with the earthy green tones of Nawab Zoravar’s European inspired ballroom which was the setting for this spectacle of a lovelorn dance performance (sic.)"

Sameera Reddy recalls being pressurised to get a boob job

Although Sameera Reddy claims to be a social media star "by coincidence," she made the switch soon after getting married and giving birth to her firstborn. Sameera is a content producer who excels at juggling several facets of her life, from being a mother to her two kids to cooking and taking her of the home, to sharing beauty and wellness tips. Those who enjoy a 'saas-bahu' banter should tune into her handle for some surprises. Sameera, who has appeared in films like 'Maine DilTujhko Diya', 'Taxi No. 9 2 11', and ‘Darna Mana Hai', opened up about the time she was working hard in showbiz and was pressurised to get her body altered by going under the knife. She told Hindustan Times, “I can’t emphasise enough on the amount of pressure that was put on me to get a boob job at the top of my career. So many people kept saying, ‘Sameera, sab log kar rahe hain, aap kyun nahin’. But I didn’t want something like that inside me. It’s like you are hiding a flaw but it’s not a flaw, it’s how life is. I will not judge someone who wants to have plastic surgery and Botox, but what works for me is internally fixing myself.”           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Sameera Reddy (@reddysameera) The former actress has flaunted her greys on Instagram and embraced aging like no other celebrity out there. However, when she hopped on the influencer bandwagon, she was asked to take the help of filters. She states, “I said I’ll show my skin when it is bad, I’ll show my cellulite and my weight. This is who I am. I am more grateful for doing this rather than being that perfect 36-24-36 figure. I get to be real which I never got to do when I was an actor. There was always this parda between me and my audience. We only put out what people wanted to hear, but it gives people anxiety when you show you ‘wake up looking like this’. No, you don’t. I wake up every day looking like crap, running behind my children. But I have the capacity to look amazing as a 45-year-old, and I own it. When you show your grey hair, your belly fat, and your stretch marks, someone out there feels ‘there is somebody else like me’ and it takes away the pressure on them.” Sameera got married to businessman, Akshai Varde in 2014. In 2015, the couple welcomed their son, Hans Varde, and in 2019, Akshai and Sameera were blessed baby girl, Nyra.

Exclusive | Uorfi Javed: β€˜I don't need Cannes to show my talent’

Uorfi Javed has become a social media sensation. The actress has been impressing the world with her amazing and unique outfits. Whether making an outfit out of phones or creating a dress out of prints, she has done it all with remarkable excellence. As the world witnesses the glamour of the film industry on the Met Gala and Cannes red carpet, Uorfi, in conversation with mid-day.com, talked about how she feels she can do a better job. The actress also rated a few Indian actresses' Cannes looks. Uorfi started the conversation by sharing how she came up with the idea of creating these unique outfits. The actress said some of her outfits are based on inspiration, while others are the result of her own imagination. Uorfi said, "Sometimes, like today’s outfit, where the birds were moving, I was inspired by Cinderella. Like in the scene where the birds make her an outfit. Yeah. So, in my mind, I thought if we merge the dress Angelina Jolie wore in Maleficent with Cinderella’s outfit in a cute way, what could we create? That was the inspiration." Further, when asked if she feels that she could have done a better job, the actress shared, "I would've killed it. I would've, oh my God, you can't even imagine. If something like this happened to me, I would kill it. I don't need Cannes to show my talent. I will show it in my India." While talking about all the unique and heavy outfits she has made so far, Uorfi said that there are a lot more coming. "I’m gonna go crazy. In these next two or three months, you’re gonna see some crazy outfits," she added. Further in the chat, Uorfi called digital creator Nancy Tyagi's outfit a big 10 out of 10 and expressed her wish to have Nancy design one of her outfits. "I've spoken to her a lot of times. That would be sweet. We've spoken about a collaboration many times. But now she's very busy, She doesn’t have time," Uorfi jokingly said. While rating everyone out of 10, Uorfi rewarded Preity Zinta an 11/10, while Aishwarya Rai's green dress only managed to get a 7. It was Aditi Rao Hydari's black and white gown that made Uorfi say she would definitely want to try it. For more such interesting news, stay tuned to mid-day.com.

Prateik Babbar reuses late mom Smita Patil's Kanjeevaram saree

Actor Prateik Babbar, who made a style statement when he attended the Mumbai screening of his late mother Smita Patil's film 'Manthan', wore a suit-pant made from her Kanjeevaram sarees. Designer Rahul Vijay, who designed the outfit, recently took to his Instagram to share details about it. Rahul also thanked Prateik for giving him the chance to create the masterpiece. Discussing the creation process of the outfit, he wrote, "Thank you @_prat for letting me dig into the archives of your late mother, and the very iconic Smita Patil. When Prateik called me up asking me to dress him up for the Indian premiere of 'Manthan', Smita Patil's first movie that was shown at the recent Cannes Film Festival, I knew I had to bring in elements of Smita Patil's style into his look". "Now this was challenging because we were getting womenswear pieces and moreover we didn't know what we would end up finding from Smita Patil's wardrobe that would match Prateik's style," he added. Rahul shared that Prateik's aunt helped them choose two silk Kanjeevaram sarees that had been preserved over the years. His idea was to merge Indian textiles with modern silhouettes, and he designed the outfit in consultation with Monica Shah of Jade by MK. They created a cropped double-breasted tuxedo in plain black silk, with the pinstripe pattern from one saree turned into wide-legged pants. The red border of the second saree was used for the sleeves, adding a touch of elegance to the ensemble. Rahul wrote, "We wanted to keep the silhouette very very modern considering we were recycling Indian sarees. I always like the juxtaposition of Indian textiles with modern silhouettes. And finally, we decided on a cropped double-breasted tuxedo in plain black silk and we recycled the second pinstriped saree into wide-legged pants and used the red border of the saree as trims on the sleeves ( the design was lifted from a recent look that the brand did for their couture collection)".           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Rahul Vijay (@rahulvijay1988) At the screening, Prateik was joined by his girlfriend, actor Priya Banerjee, who added a personal touch by wearing Smita's saree and her jewelry. Apart from Prateik, attendees included Naseeruddin Shah with his wife Ratna Pathak Shah, Dr. Kurien's daughter Nirmala Kurien, and Amul MD Jayen Mehta. Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, the founder of the Film Heritage Foundation, the non-profit organization responsible for the restored print, was also present.

Cannes: Anasuya bought her outfit from flea market to receive Best Actress award

In an unprecedented and momentous event, Anasuya Sengupta has become the first Indian actor to win the prestigious Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival.

I am deeply grateful to the festival jury - artists I have long admired - for recognising my work among such talented peers. To me, this award is much more than just a personal achievement. I am here because of my film, 'The Shameless', tirelessly mounted by my producers from all over the world; Urban factory, Akka films, House on Fire productions, Klas films, TPHQ, and Shanta Nepali productions that line produced in Nepal. I am particularly grateful to my cast and my director Konstantin Bojanov for believing so fiercely in me. He is nothing short of a magician in my eyes!” "This film bears testimony to the power of storytelling and the invaluable contributions of all who worked so lovingly on it, not thinking about glory or possible accolades.
