Be it Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor or Parineeti Chopra, the new kids on the block are indeed proving themselves to be a fun-loving and funky yet intelligent lot.

Joining the bandwagon this week is Mandana Karimi, the dazzling new face in Vikram Bhatt’s forthcoming film Bhaag Johnny.

Mandana, who will feature as a lead alongside Kunal Khemu and Zoa Morani in the movie, is the new cover girl for Stuff magazine’s latest issue, where she has revealed some interesting things.

It turns out that one of the most expensive gadgets the girl owns is a water-proof camera. “I’m yet to test it underwater! Maybe, after I buy myself an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini,” she grins. Ooh la la! We’ll sure wait for that one!

Ask her about the simplest gadget she loves and she says, “I’d give that position to my trendy-looking mini hair dryer. I’m a girl who likes to travel light and this one fits neatly into my little traveling bag.”

More on the techno side, Mandana reveals she has a fascination for a big futuristic television set for her living room. “It should be a Full HD web-connected TV, preferably with stereoscopic 3D,” she quips, saying she’s already saving up for something like that. Atta girl!

Chennai Express to bring Kolkata jhaal muri, Delhi chaat and Mumbai bhel

As Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express rolls in this week, select cinema halls in the country will have audiences getting a taste of some delicious snacks from different Indian states.

If you are wondering how, we can let you in on a little secret. The exhibitor chain Rathi Group of Cinemas has tied up with the 60-year-old Kolkata-based company Mukharochak Foods to offer popular snack dishes like jhaal muri from Kolkata, kabuli chana chaat from Delhi and bhel from Mumbai at some of their theaters in their cinema hall chain.

Starting with Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express starring SRK and Deepika Padukone with a special song dedicated to none other than Rajnikanth, the mouth-watering experience will extend to Milan Luthria’s Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara! (OUATIMD) starring Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha; closely followed by Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha starring Amitabh Bachchan with Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor.

OUATIMD producer Ekta Kapoor is kicked about the idea! “It’s a novel initiative in elevating the viewer’s movie-watching experience,” she quips.

Akshaye Rathi, the brain behind the association with the Kolkata-based company, sums it up saying, “Indians are passionate about films and food, so it can’t get better than offering the best of both worlds”. Indeed, with path-breaking marketing concepts such as these, Bollywood sure is on a fun romp.
