Goa is a place where the glitterati takes a breather. Be it at their secret haven across the sunny state or just to catch up with friends. Designer Wendell Rodricks is usually at the heart of these social gatherings... as he opens the doors to his gorgeous Portuguese bungalow at Colvale. He recently posted a happy picture of Lara Dutta Bhupathi with hubby Mahesh Bhupathi, having a sunny day out at his home, even as his cute pooches ran about in abandon. Rodricks said about his dog called Athena, “Athena: “I don’t care about these guests and staff photo, I am gonna SSTRRECCCH it out” ?? — with Lara Dutta Bhupathi and Mahesh Bhupathi.”

 

Gaurav Natekar, the former tennis champ was also in Goa... and with august sporting company. He clicked a relaxed picture with Mahesh Bhupathi and Sunil Chhetri on a golden beach, saying, “#legendsoftheball #tennis #football #bhaichungbhutia #maheshbhupathi#oneforthealbum #goa #legends,” and it is three-fold smiling picture. Infact, Gaurav seems to be among the creme de la creme of sporting icons as he had earlier this month posted another picture saying, “Over 300 national and international tournament titles in #tennis and #badminton in this one photo!! Epic afternoon at home with the Amritraj brothers and Charu Sharma!!#nandunatekar #legends #homefood #sportstalk,” and we would have loved to be a part of the conversation on both occasions!

 

Why is actress Hari Prriya elated? Well, the talented actress is currently in the capital city, exploring Dilli the real rustic way! The actress posted a rather cute image of herself drinking tea from an earthen pot captioned, “sipping chai in Delhi” From what we hear, the actress is on a holiday food trail and is checking into popular spots and even went to Rishikesh, according to some updates.

When did fans spot actor Mohanlal with his family? He was enjoying a yummy Chinese meal at a five star restaurant in the city. We heard that he has lost oodles of weight and looked extremely dapper and handsome. Fans could not help their surreptitious glances towards the star!

 

What celebration was everyone talking about? Well, the birthday celebrations of the very popular Lily Hirani, who turned 70 last Friday, had a party thrown in her honour by her daughters Jaya and Kanak. The invite was accompanied by lovely black and white visuals of a young Lily, and these were sent out a month in advance. The ladies luncheon at a popular star hotel saw not just Lily’s friends but also her daughter Jaya and Kanak, making it one big happy bash!

Who was spotted at a party recently? Ujala and Prakash Padukone. The low profile couple was seen mingling with their close friends. Ujala looked lovely in a light-hued linen suit and was animatedly chatting with her pals.

 

Where did the Ooreans have a total blast for New Year’s? It was apparently the KGA that hosted the most happening, wonderfully-organised party for the countdown, and we heard that many who were there were completely impressed with the arrangements, the staff and Rodney’s set. Kudos are definitely in order for a bash that was well-organised!

Actor Srii Murali is a doting father and lets no opportunity pass when it comes to spending quality time with his children. This Sankranti was no different. Srii Murali kept it private and low key, and dug into traditional savouries on the occasion — “Ee Habbadha special food items... “Sweet Pongal, Kaara Pongal, Awarekaallu Saaru, Mosaranna and Ofcourse Kabbu,Yallu and Bella” hmmm Tc all!” the actor captioned his celebration as he posted a photograph with his children.
