Bollywood Fashion Update: Imran Khan Covers Filmfare Magazine – August 2012

Looking too cool for school in a classic white tee, faded jeans & wayfarer sunglasses Indian actor Imran Khan covers filmfare magazine’s first issue for the month of August 2012.

I love Imran Khan (Fashionwidget’s choice for best dressed bollywood male 2011) the actor and the stylish bloke. I have not seen enough of him this year on the red carpet but wherever & whenever the reclusive actor has shown up, he has delivered the style as expected even at somewhere as simple as the airport. He just knows how to bring something special to the traditional suit look and I think that’s the style factor I appreciate most about him. His wife Avantika’s style (pictured below) is a different tale entirely but she is a star-wife and is free to dress any way she chooses to. I appreciate those who try to make fashion statements but if they do not care for fashion then they should be left alone. While we’re on fashion statements, I’m hoping that new beard Khan has been sporting is for an upcoming movie role…it keeps growing and looks a bit creepy. Nothing against bearded people or beards or anything.

Indian Runway-Model-Turned-Actress Anushka Sharma Covers Filmfare Middle-East – July 2012

It’s not so much as a statement cover but Ms. Sharma does look pretty in a beige-ish pink sequins et sheer mini dress styled up with tousled locks, nude makeup and a simple black chain bag. Three hit films strong (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Band Baaja Baaraat & Ladies vs Vicky Bahl) with a film career that began in 2008, the former model discusses her upcoming film projects with ace directors Anurag Kashyap and Raju Hirani among others. The issue is available on international newsstands now or press/media representatives can request a digital copy at filmfare.com/magazine.

Side Note: The other headline on the cover quoting French-Indian actress Kalki Koechlin (wife of director Anurag Kashyap) as saying she cannot play Bengali village-girl is so hilarious. I don’t believe I need to read the magazine to figure out why she has said this and if you know what Ms. Koechlin looks like versus a Bengali village girl, you will be laughing at her statement too. I just love Kalki, she is one of my favourite new Indian actresses and a fabulous fashionista might I add. Nice to know she has such a healthy sense of humour and does not take herself too seriously. Hopefully, somebody will challenge her and cast her in this role she does not think she can do.

Open Note To Kalki Koechlin: Meryl Streep would never give such a quote! You can do it Kalki, don’t limit yourself. If Robert Downing Jr. could convincingly play an African-American in ‘Tropic Thunder’ without causing any racial uproar, certainly you can play a Bengali village girl. All you need is a tan and drop your Tamilian accent, the acting thing is already in the bag.

Bollywood Update: Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor Cover Filmfare for Teri Meri Kahaani

Team TMK

Yes, she did it again (see: https://fashionwidget.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/cover-girl-an-open-letter-to-fashion-actress-priyanka-chopra-23/). Ex-Miss World Priyanka Chopra yet again has graced the cover of Filmfare magazine with that now signature hand-on-hip pose but at least this time she has company in her ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ co-star Shahid Kapoor to make things interesting. The pair appear on the July 4th, 2012 issue on international newsstands now.
