As if it was not enough that Priyanka Chopra and Anoushka Shankar shared a slice of their life with you or that Imran Khan tickled your funny bone with amazing humour every week —we have a jackpot for you starting tomorrow.
Joining our popular Celeb and the City columnists are a gang of fab four — Superstar Akshay Kumar, filmmaker par excellence Karan Johar, the gorgeous Deepika Padukone and every girl’s dream-man Kunal Kapoor.
In the past few months, all Celeb and the City columnists, including the sexy John Abraham, the very talented Madhur Bhandarkar and cool dude Rannvijay touched a chord in a million hearts through their weekly columns. The new entrants are hoping to do the same — and much more. Says Akshay Kumar, “I’m so looking forward to writing this column each week. It’s my way of telling my fans that they have direct access to me, and my thoughts.”
Never short of humour, our now ‘senior’ columnist Imran had this to say as he welcomes the new four on board, “I’m pleased to welcome the new ‘kids’ into HT’s ‘mentor programme’ and will be happy to provide guidance —and discipline as and when required. Feel free to contact me for advice, feedback or even just a pressure point massage. I’m here for you.”
But could the freshers take the good humoured dig so meekly? Kunal Kapoor responds to his good buddy Imran and says, “Thanks Shakespeare.
But as the late Rajkumar would say, ‘bachhe, jis school mein tum padhte ho, wahan ke hum Principal hain.’ The pressure point offer is tempting though. Call me once you are done with Akshay, Deepika and Karan.”
