In a series of IGTV videos titled Arjun Recommends, the actor can be seen talking about the show or the film, explaining the plot and giving out fun trivia.

No Rain, No Kartik

It appears that Kartik Aaryan reserves his love for his ladylove Sara Ali Khan for a rainy day. Pictures of Kartik escorting Sara from her dance class in Mumbai’s Andheri suburb went viral on Wednesday. And while he saved the damsel from the rain gods on that day, the next two days did not see much of rains, and Sara had to go home without an escort from her class. “Perhaps Kartik had come that day because it was raining rather heavily. Sara normally goes for her classes alone,” says a paparazzo. Meanwhile, Bollywood sources say that the Luka Chuppi...

The 'Khiladi' actor Akshay Kumar is one such parent.On the occasion of Aarav's birthday, Akshay penned an emotional note for his son.The actor passing on a teaching from his own father, asked his son to not freak out and reach out to him, no matter what. One thing which I learnt from my father was if I ever mess up,he’d be my go-to person instead of ‘Oh no!Dad’s going to kill me.’ Today, being on your speed dial makes...

On my radar: Gruff Rhys’s cultural highlights

Gruffudd “Gruff” Rhys was born in Haverfordwest in 1970 and raised in Bethesda, north Wales. His band, Super Furry Animals, broke through in the mid-90s, their freeform approach and penchant for psychedelia setting them well apart from their Britpop peers, with whom they were often grouped. Rhys, a passionate Welsh speaker, released his first solo album, Yr Atal Genhedlaeth, in 2005 and in 2007 he formed the electro-pop duo Neon Neon. His sixth solo album, Pang!, is out now on Rough Trade. 1. Novel Speedboat by Renata Adler This came out in 1976 but was reissued quite recently. Adler was...

Joyce DiDonato: ‘I’m trying to balance activism and joy’

Standing alone under the glass-and-iron canopy of the Royal Opera House’s Paul Hamlyn Hall, the American mezzo-soprano is in full dramatic flight: winking, grinning, pouting, flirting, twirling, giggling. It’s a lesson for the photo-phobic: always give your all, even to an inanimate camera lens. The Observer’s photographer makes one last request and it doesn’t sound simple: would she lie down on that sofa over there so he can snap her from the gallery above? Furniture is rearranged. They’ve already had an hour. Inwardly I’m an emoji scream. DiDonato is right there, splayed out Hollywood-starlet style, shoes on, off, hand this...

At home with Italy's ultras: ‘It isn’t about watching football, but watching each other’

Although I love football – playing it, watching it, talking about it – I’ve always thought the fans were more intriguing than the players. Maybe it’s an ideological inclination towards the masses rather than the elite; or else a belief that the meaning of sport resides not in the champions, but in those who are being championed. In many ways this story isn’t about football at all, but a portrait of an enduring Italian subculture inspired by it. For more than 50 years, the ultras have turned the curve (the “curved” ends behind the goal) into fairground mirrors of Italian...

Fiona Bruce on 40 years of Question Time: 'it's where the reality confronts the rhetoric'

Question Time turns 40 at the end of this month. The institution is not immune to that birthday’s particular mix of crisis and denial. While the programme’s 25th year was marked with affectionate celebration and nostalgic retrospectives, this time around there will be little fanfare. Mostly, you imagine, like many of us who have experienced that midlife milestone, the show would ideally like to take to its bed in a darkened room to fret about its blood pressure and its sell-by date, and to relive those golden years before any red-faced audience member ever yelled the words “no deal” or...
