In Brief

Monday, June 11, 2018

We hear from the Reuters news agency that the US television studio ABC has apologised to Indian fans of its crime drama ‘Quantico’ after an episode featuring Indian nationalists trying to frame Pakistan in a terrorist plot went down badly with Indians. “The episode has stirred a lot of emotion, much of which is unfairly aimed at Priyanka Chopra, who didn’t create the show, nor does she write or direct it,” said Walt Disney-owned ABC, as a part of its apology statement.

London is flooded with Bollywood celebrities at the moment. While Sonam Kapoor is vacationing there with hubby Anand Ahuja, as of last week, even Kareena Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha were in the British capital. While Kareena was on vacation, Sonakshi was a guest at a Women’s India Association (WIA) event – the well-known Vintage Glamour Charity Ball which was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Friday.

Our friend and foodie Rashmi Uday Singh posted on Facebook a few days ago, a photo of herself saying cheers as she held a beer mug at the Hofbraeuhaus tavern in Munich -- which once hosted the legendary musician Mozart. Writes Rashmi: “Hofbraeuhaus was built in the 16th century by King Maximilian of Bavaria. What I love most (here) is the famous Bavarian white sausage (called ‘weisswurst’) with the sweet mustard as the oompapapa band plays.” Globetrotting indeed!
