Sonam Kapoor launched the trailer of Khoobsurat which is an adaption of Rekha’s film of the same name but with a different-ish plotline.
Sonam’s in Australian designer Toni Maticevski’s silk, diamond and skull print dress. I’ve stared so long and hard at the dress to find the diamond and skull prints that now I can see them in 3D.
I spent even more time wondering why she wore two different coloured and shaped earrings. Turns out it’s a take on the ‘misfit’ in the film’s tagline – the royal misfit. Let’s not make this a thing, guys. Spend those extra five minutes looking for the matching earring.
And being the fabulous actor that she is, Sonam perfectly emulated how I look when I do not visit the parlour for a few weeks. Only I don’t look this good.
And here she is doing an imitation of me emerging after a hair bath. Only I’m crabby because shampoo has gotten into my eyes and now I’m late for work and there are water stains on my top.
That’s her being me as I try to convince my parents to frame at least one photo of me and put it up next to the ones they have of all my well-educated and married cousins.
And behold the very khoobsurat (I couldn’t resist) Fawad Khan from across the border – Pakistan, not Bhutan. If your filmy repertoire extends to ‘foreign films’ then you’ve seen him in Khuda Kay Liye and in a TV show, which I suspect but cannot vouch for, that’s based on Gulzar’s life. Or it could be a love story between a poor girl and a rich guy. Either way, here’s some more eye candy to ogle.
