Dabboo Ratnani’s Calendar 2013: Bollywood Stars say “Paneer!”

Pour Ratnani, Big B s'habille comme un sac!
It’s in the bag for Big B!

A few days ago, I published a strange picture on my blog. You remember how we laughed at Big B wearing Louis 14’s slippers and a skiing-puffa jacket!

I’ve just discovered where this picture is from!

It was actually taken from a calendar, a bit like Pirelli calendar, but in India, and less sexy of course! Photographer Dabboo Ratnani invited la crème de la crème from Bollywood to strike the pose for 2013, – I note that refined Aamir Khan didn’t take part to this “no-smile-shooting fiesta”. I must admit I hate that kind of calendars. I can’t imagine waking up every morning and finding myself face to face with Hrithik Roshan‘s abdominals stuck on the door of my fridge!

Anyway!

Once more, it is a little sad to see that these superstars still can’t get rid of the gender clichés : guys pose on a motorbike, wearing sunglasses, open shirts or showing such impressive muscles that even Poppeye would choke on his spinach! As for the girls, that’s not better! They are often half naked and their eyes seem to say “Take me now” to the camera! Basically, I have nothing against cigars and half-naked women, but it is so common!

 Well, I like a couple of photos all the same:

De toute façon, j'ai toujours un faible pour Akshay Kumar
Anyway, I’ve always had a little crush on Akshay Kumar
Kajol, (que je n'ai pas reconnue, comme d'hab mais qui a un joli sourire, une jolie robe et une jolie camionnette!
As usual, I didn’t recognize Kajol! But she has a lovely smile…and an ugly dress! But she looks like Cinderella: “I’m coming back from a bal on a dirty pumpkin.” I like it!
Un petit air de Nicola Sirkis d'Indochine...
Shahrukh, the new fragrance by Christian Dior…

But what I really prefer is the back cover of the calendar showing plenty of little photos of Ratnani, his models, and his family, I guess…
