Shashi Tharoor, 63, a member of the Indian National Congress Party, is high up on every list of India’s best and brightest. He’s written 19 best-selling books including a collection of short stories and three novels, notably “The Great Indian Novel” (1989). He’s also published a biography of India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, seven nonfiction works, plus two books of photographs, about his country. Until he entered politics in 2009, he wrote a weekly column, “India Reawakening,” that was syndicated in 80 newspapers worldwide. But in today’s spirit one can say Tharoor’s main claim to fame is the number of followers he has on Twitter. No fewer than 7.1 million people imbibe his cogitations avidly, more than any other rank-and-file politician in the world. He’s known for his extremely well articulated sentences, correcting grammar and coming up with new unknown words for the twitterati. As famous as ever Tharoor is an icon for today’s generation. 📖📖📖

2. Each time she appeared on the camera, the symbol that screamed boldness, the OG fashionista, and all-time trendsetter, Zeenat Aman posing for a candid photo.

It is said that the glam doll of 70s was the first to introduce westernized look and boldness on the screen. Zeenat Aman’s sultry on-screen personality was refreshingly different from other leading heroines of that era. She did not mind wearing revealing outfits. She did not mind smoking, which was in a first, on screen. Her fashion style and charm were strikingly divergent from others. Aman aced her screen presence with more than just her acting and sexiness. Her clothes added to her armour with cleavage revealing blouses and bell bottoms. She set forth the hippie trend in India with large rudraksh beads and bindis with jeans. Her chosen bright patterned shirts and loud colours made heads turn with every single look on screen. For a brief period, she even went back to writing for magazines like Savvy and Super in a special column. 🎥🎥🎥

3. Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan, very young and cute.

Saif Ali Khan was considered a misfit when he started his career in the early 90s. He just did some mindless commercial B movies and was never in the A-list. In an attempt to avoid typecasting and broaden his range as an actor, Khan starred as Karan Singh Rathod in the thriller Ek Hasina Thi (2004), a character he described as “a Charles Sobhraj-meets-James Bond kind of a guy”. When Khan was initially offered the project, he was unable to do it due to his busy schedule. However, he agreed when Raghavan approached him for the second time, and in preparation for the role, exercised extensively for six months to achieve the physical requirements of his character. Upon release, the film was positively received by critics, with Khan’s performing earning praise and probably a big cornerstone in his career.🎥🎥🎥

8. Until Salman made it famous, Dharmendra went shirtless.

The trend of bare chested heroes started with long back in Hindi cinema. Dharmendra bared his upper-half for OP Ralhan’s Phool Aur Patthar in 1966. The story of the streetwise Shaka, who brings home a distressed woman (Meena Kumari), and is reformed by her love, hinged on the ‘revealing’ sequence. A drunk-to-the-gills shaka stumbles onto the room where the petrified woman pretends to be asleep. A sharp gasp pierced cinema halls all over the country when Dharmendra tore off his shirt and advanced menacingly towards the inert feminine figure on the bed. At that precise moment, the celluloid beefcake was born. Before Phool Aur Patthar, heroes had bared their chests mainly in stunt films. After that, overt manifestations of machismo were in. The picture looks quite different today as Indian cinema has a clear cut pre requisite from its leading 9. men to have a body to flaunt. 🎬🎬🎬

10. A vintage photograph of a play by Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri.

That’s naseeruddin shah and Om Puri performing a play in their younger days. With a friendship spanning over four decades, the warmth of their relationship informed each other’s career and performance in more than one ways. Shah said in an interview that Puri is one of those rare persons in the industry whom he could frankly critique, and in turn be critiqued by. Puri and Shah met at the prestigious National School of Drama in the 1970s where Puri was an acting student and Shah was pursuing a directorial course. They then went on to continue their education at the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune. In fact, it was Shah who had joined FTII first, he coaxed Puri into joining him there. Two of the most rigorously trained actors in the industry, both maintained a steady distaste for mainstream commercial Hindi cinema. 📷📷📷
