Eye for fashion
Cyrus Poonawalla is known for his sense of fashion. And this diarist was pleasantly surprised to see Poonawalla Sr at a local fashion event.
He certainly left the diarist with no lingering doubts that he is the ardent connoisseur of fashion. Wearing a snazzy coat , the baron, your diarist noticed was keenly observing models, designers and their creations at the fashion show.
Completely at ease and looking cheerfully relaxed, he carefully scrutinized every outfit displayed, making sure to check out the footwear too — see didn't this diarist say this man is very particular? And like a good sport that he is, Poonawalla heartily applauded, appreciating all the designs.
When actress Amruta Khanvilkar made an entry on the ramp, he confirmed the name of the showstopper and continued clapping.
He only got up only when breaks were announced unlike the other guests who made a hurried beeline for the bar even before the show started —or was it because the fashion event commenced almost two hours late? Tsk, tsk, fashionably late as usual?
Aamir Khan is known for his sense of occasion. And you cannot but expect him to turn the completion of his TV show into a moment. The diarist has learnt that the actor with his wife Kiran and son Azad are taking off to their Panchgani home for a special celebration.
With only close family and friends in attendance, the evening has all the makings of a monsoon soiree – we hear Kiran, who is a big fan of classical music has invited Pandit Chhannulal Mishra from Benaras to grace the occasion.
The noted exponent of Kirana gharana is no stranger to Bollywood, having sung for Aarakshan and Mohalla Assi. As for baby Azad, he is surely privileged to grow up in a house where maestros perform live.
