What’s in a name?
It’s hard to watch someone else in the limelight, especially when you’re used to hogging it for years. That’s probably what Sridevi thought when she attended Neeta Lulla’s show. A classical male dancer had the stage to himself for a show, and the actor was seen gazing wistfully at the performer on the ramp. She then turned to her elder daughter and said, “I used to dance like that.” Can’t be easy sacrificing the spotlight, huh?

Prateik can’t exactly be called A-list, but on a day when the celebrity count is low, the upcoming actor’s presence counts for more than what even he bargained for. He was on his way out of LFW, accompanied by designer-friend Kunal Rawal. Though the photographers were stationed at a spot, they didn’t notice Prateik. Until one over-enthusiastic media person suddenly recognised him, and called on him for a byte. But when they asked him for his opinion on the show, the brawny actor wasn’t quite sure what to say, and chose to maintain his brooding silent image, than commit a fashion faux pas.

Yuvraj Singh could probably give you a lesson or two on the cricket pitch, but the star seems eager to learn a few things about fashion too. Attending Wendell Rodrick’s show, the all-rounder caught the attention of everyone around for the way he paid strict attention to the models… and the clothes they were wearing. Nodding appreciatively every time a model caught his eye, there’s no arena this young star doesn’t seem to be a master of.
