Gulf Weekly Jalal’s timely tips on the latest trends

When Bollywood divas hit the stage together they generally bring down the house! That was precisely what happened when three of the Hindi film industry’s most sought-after superstars were pictured wearing exclusive Roger Dubuis timepieces at a photo-shoot.

Sizzling on the cover of the Harper’s Bazaar India magazine, was Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha and Alia Bhatt – three of the most bankable superstars that rule the multi-million dollar world that is Hindi cinema today.

They represent three different generations. The shoot also celebrated the release of the film Kalank, which features all three actresses in prominent roles. The watches that sat pretty on the actresses’ wrists were from the Roger Dubuis Excalibur and Velvet ranges.

Madhuri has appeared in acting and dancing roles in many hit films of the 1980s and 1990s and the Indian government awarded her with the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour of the country.

Sonakshi is the daughter of actors Shatrughun Sinha and Poonam Sinha and made her acting debut in the action-drama film Dabangg opposite Salman Khan, which won her the Filmfare Award for best debutant female.

And, Alia, the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan, is one of the nation’s highest-paid contemporary actresses. Her 2018 spy thriller Raazi emerged as one of Hindi cinema’s biggest-earning female-led films, following which Bhatt starred in the musical drama Gully Boy, her highest-grossing release yet.
