India's Newly-Weds: AbhiAsh
most famous couple is revelling in their newly wed status. Aishwarya
Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are greeted with love and affection
everywhere they go. Famously famous, they are enjoying every custom
that comes with marriage... visiting temples, celebrating karva chauth
and attending community events for each other. We love the restrained
Ash now giggling, as newly-weds are wont to and Abhi playing the
mature, caring husband.
Cupid's Games: Kajol - Ajay Devgan
brought together two strikingly different people to create great
chemistry. Kajol and Ajay Devgan are both strong headed and it shows in
the way they deal with their relationship in public. It is a love-bound
relationship that is replete with family, kids and a satiated married
life. We love their restrained public appearances. No PDAs for them and
yet – it's hard to miss how much in love they really are!
Age No Bar: Farah Khan & Shirish Kunder
Khan and Shirish Kunder were in the news this year for the triplets
they are now ready to welcome. It seems humour brings together this
remarkable couple. Farah is eight years elder to Kunder but they seem
to have a blast together with age being a well-received joke between
the two. Despite the age difference and Farah being the more famous
one, they lead a blissfully married life. We love how there are no
insecurities here - just lots of love and understanding.
Accepting Lot: Malaika Arora - Arbaaz Khan
is easily India's ultimate sex symbol and he is the coy, confident
husband. Malaika Arora Khan and Arbaaz Khan live a beautifully Indian
married life with their son Arhaan. Despite work, family and a kid
Malaika is going great guns with her career. Arbaaz supports her
through everything she does. We love the way they have taken their
marriage, and a Hindu-Muslim one at that, and made it an average part
of their not-so-average lives.
Bindaas Bol : John Abraham - Bipasha Basu
going strong, this remains the hottest couple on the block. Bipasha and
John it seems are most likely to get married and we sure hope they do.
What we love about the two is their 'khullam khulla pyar karenge
' attitude. No coy games for them. What you see is exactly what you get!
Awesome Twosome: Preity Zinta - Ness Wadia
don't speak much about their personal lives but they aren't reticent
about it either. Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia are evidently in love. We
love their ability to keep away from controversies. Both of them are
super-cool, famed people with extrovert personalities. But they have
what it takes to keep away from the rumour blitzkrieg, keeping the
press aptly at bay. We're certainly eager to hear when they plan to
ring some nuptial bells.
Influential Liaisons: Amar Singh - Amitabh Bachchan
together at almost every do, Amar Singh and Amitabh Bachchan it seems
are best friends for life. They visit weddings and temples together,
invest in companies promoted by the other and even fight for the
other's purpose. They have stood by each other at the worst of times
and no ego hassles have troubled them. Their friendship is something
everyone can learn something from.
Evolving Together: Akshay - Twinkle
took a Twinkling star to reform the proverbial playboy. Akshay is going
strong as the man of the year. And Twinkle is making everything work at
home. The couple's synergy is impeccable and their respect for the
other is apparent. Marriage with Twinkle changed Akshay's image from a
Casanova to Daddy cool. Twinkle also turned to her love, making
candles, thanks to Akshay. This is the perfect give and take in a
marriage. Kudos, shall we say?
Love in the Air: Kingfisher - Air Deccan
Mallya's Kingfisher picked up a 26% stake in G.R. Gopinath's Air Deccan
for $135.57 million this year. It has been a union of two major airline
players. Post-alliance, Mallya is vice chairman of Deccan Aviation
while Gopinath is executive chairman. It is hoped the deal will provide
a much-needed financial boost to Air Deccan. The low-cost carrier and
the flamboyant United Breweries group are now India's largest domestic
airline group connecting 75 cities and offering over 558 flights daily
with a fleet of 80 aircraft.
Arty Romance: Javed Akhtar - Shabana Azmi
celebrated their 23rd anniversary in Dec '07. Shabana and Javed set a
sterling example of mature love. Shabana made it clear on a chat show
that the greatest writer of Indian cinema is not a romantic. The
relationship of these two culturally evolved personalities comes across
subtly and with a lot of wisdom. A lesson in marriage for all
True to the Nation: Ratan Tata - India
Ratan Tata became chairman of the Tata Group in 1991 and the revenues
of the company have grown six-fold since. Ratan Tata was adopted by
Lady JRD Tata as a kid and he joined the family business in 1962. He is
not simply a businessman but also a Samaritan who has made the Tata
Group a global firm in all respects. Ratan Tata has always thought of
the nation first. He has been acquiring international names like Daewoo
Commercial Vehicle and Corus, permanently marking India Inc. on the
global map. Now, with his Rs.1lakh car he is set to change the face of
Indian roads as well.
