The actor’s hook step of song First Class was widely picked up by everyone and from award shows to house parties, this song has been raging. How has been your journey with American Idol? It’s been great. Well, I was really proud of the last season, especially when we got to the top 10. It was so diverse. It was so unique. There weren’t just, you know, people with good voices. There were great people with personalities that had star power. Nora Fatehi’s Dilbar Dilbar has been in the music charts ever since its release.

Though the term is very generic, a combination of numerous dance forms, anyone can claim to know it even if all one knows is just one dance, and that’s the beauty of it. “Whether I am in Budapest or Moscow, as beats go on, the crowd is always moving.” High recall value, being aspirational and fun at the same time, Bolly dancing is one packed class at her Dance Dacha. “Bollywood numbers are high on the go-to list, whether it’s a fitness class or a family function!” What qualities are you looking for in the next idol? Of course, it’s a singing competition if you can’t sing, you can’t be on this competition. But it’s not just that. You know, it’s not like American singer. It’s the idol. And for the idol factor, you’ve got to have so many different things going for you and that’s what I’m always going to look for. Who is a true ‘idol’ from your point of view? Someone who stands out! I think it is talent, personality and story, you know. And in that, personality is presentation. Some people can turn a little bit sour or like change when they come to Hollywood and they lose that vulnerability. They lose that relatability. I think it’s just people that they feel really connected to. How well do you bond with Luke and Richie? Lionel, Luke and I have all grown really as a family. I mean, they feel like my brother and my uncle. We are so relaxed with each other and maybe that’s a bad thing sometimes. But we have such a great chemistry, all three of us. We play on each other’s strengths. I think we got used to an incredible top 10 on the first season. And so, we’re not really giving anyone the benefit of the doubt, I guess, more so. How do you guide the contestants? I try to be able to pay it forward by caring. I care so much about these kids. And being a real mentor, I give them advice that they can hopefully take and really apply so that they can win. I mean, I’m just so encouraged by these kids and it makes me feel like a good person while doing it, so I love it. Avengers: Endgame rewrites record books in India Still in suspense Scarlett Johansson might take political plunge ‘some time in future’ Actor Scarlett Johansson says she will not rule out the possibility of her entering politics “some time in the future”.

Discussing her activism during an interview, Johansson said she harbours political aspirations. “Maybe some time in the future. I think the greatest way to effect change is in local politics. Maybe at some point in the distant future I will feel that calling, but I just haven’t,” the actor said. Johansson currently stars as superhero Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame. She is also set to headline a stand-alone based on her Marvel character. — PTI What a marvel!

Ferguson passed away on Friday night at his home in Palmdale, California. His son Jace told the publication that he found his father next to his bed with the TV on, and it comes as a shock because he was spry and seemed healthy in the days leading up to his death. “He was a strong, beautiful intelligent black man and he wanted the best for his son and all people,” he added. —PTI c m y b Sari’s ‘sorry’ saga Disha Patani’s sari look sparks debate Actress Disha Patani has rekindled Bollywood’s romance with the yellow sari through the Slow Motion song from Salman Khan’s Bharat. But it has left many asking “Where’s the sari?” In the video of the peppy number by Vishal and Shekhar featuring Nakash Aziz and Shreya Ghoshal, Disha is seen matching her dance moves along with Salman. But it is her sensual yellow sari with a pallu twisted like a rope and thrown over her shoulder that has caught attention. The song garnered over 24 million views on YouTube in just 24 hours. Award-winning textile designer Gaurang Shah feels the essence of the sari has got completely diluted. “Well, everyone one has a choice to reinvent, but that doesn’t mean you do away with fundamental essence that made sari a beautiful attire for generations. It is a celebration of our cultural legacy and heritage. A sari is a sari. You must drape it in a manner that retains its magnificent character,” Shah said. Designer Varija Bajaj called it a poor rendition in the name of reinventing ways to drape the six-yard wonder. “Designers all across are working of reinventing the classic saris into sari gowns, lehenga saris, saris with jeans and some of them are extremely beautiful inventions,” said Bajaj. “There is a very thin line between a beautiful innovation and a tragic disaster when it comes to designers reinventing a sari. A poor rendition not only looks distasteful, but also kills the very essence of feminism in a sari, and I guess that forms the majority chunk of such reinventions,” she added. Ace designer Ritu Kumar feels the stylist hasn’t broken “any norm” with the look. “A sari is an unstitched garment and it is worn in different ways in different parts of the country. A sari can come in nine yards to three yards. There is no standardisation of a sari and there never has been,” said Kumar, adding that there is no “traditional way or a hard and fast rule to wear a sari”. — IANS
