Fine. Ok. I’ll start. I’m addicted to Lays American Cream and Onion chips. I can eat a whole bag (the share pack) by myself anytime! *Phew* glad I got that out there. But I promise to back off the potato action till after my Goa wedding :) I swear!
So I went to this awesome (and very unique) book launch the other day where everyone from Dimple & Twinkle Khanna, Rahul Bose, Parmeshwar Godrej, Rashmi Uday Singh, Anuragh Kashyup, Poonam Dhillon, Nisha JamVwal, Jatin Kampani, Kalki Koechlin, Soni Razdan and Gul Panag were either participating or in attendance. Kalki and Soni performed hilarious monologues from the book, directed by captain Kashyap and Dimple & Twinkle took part in a free-wheeling discussion; revealing that Miss Twinkle struggled with her weight and was put on a fruit diet by mommy Dimple as a child!
My favorite part of course, was meeting Kalli Puri the author who has unabashedly chronicled her love affair with food (and her love/hate relationship with her weighing scale.) I’m sure this book will ring true with even the mildly body-conscious and who knows, with 43 diets to choose from you might just find the right “fit” for you!
So you know Rahul Bose used to date Kalli’s sister Koel Puri right? I was kinda curious why he showed up but she didn’t, but I’m gonna assume she was busy shooting since she did Tweet this:
Watch the videos that follow for a peak into the book launch and get a flavor of Kalli’s writing; witty and honest, I like!
Both Soni and Kalki were amazing. Breathing character into the pages of a book. Soni made my feel bad for people who struggle with their weight and laugh at jealous conversations I’ve overheard at a million Page 3 parties and Kalki? Well she made me very, very hungry!
During the free-wheeling Q&A my favorite response was Anurag Kashyap’s when asked if his wife Kalki’s slender physique makes him conscious. He said, “it’s not so much her physique as the fact the she looks 17 that’s the problem!” *roflmao*
I caught up with the gorgeous Gul who was sweet, as always. (And to her credit handled a swarm of creepy older men with a great deal of poise!)
Style check: I’m digging the pink on Poonam Dhillon and the bling on Nisha JamVwal…
And just before I left, I got Kalki to say cheese in her boho-chic gear, love the hat!
Psst! Catch all my star interviews and more from the event on Style Police, UTV Bindass on Monday at 8pm, and check out where I ended up that night…
…yup, you guessed it. Back at Royalty in Bandra for the 4th time that week! xoxo
