Ed­i­tor’s Let­ter

Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONTENTS -

I’m one of those peo­ple who gets re­ally ex­cited about birth­days. And I don’t just mean be­ing in a good mood on the day—I’m talk­ing about plan­ning the party five months in ad­vance, buy­ing 20 ‘out­fit op­tions’, and send­ing out a list of presents I’d like, so friends and fam­ily needn’t worry about what to get me. Yes, I’m ob­ses­sive about birth­days, so you can only imag­ine what a jack-in-the-box I’ve been the last few weeks, in an­tic­i­pa­tion of Cosmo’s 16th an­niver­sary.

Wel­come to our most an­tic­i­pated is­sue of the year—our 16th birthday blowout, where we’ve asked ev­ery big name around to come join the party. The re­sult is an is­sue packed with so much raz­zle-dazzle, it de­serves its own glamour in­dus­try! We got Sonam Kapoor to hand­pick the hottest fash­ion finds for now (page 348); had Shilpa Shetty re­veal her re­la­tion­ship rules (page 208); asked Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez and Ka­reena Kapoor to give us beauty tips and tricks (page 372 and 380), and I haven’t even got­ten to our spe­cial fea­tures with Priyanka Cho­pra, Malaika Arora, Dia Mirza, Freida Pinto, Shruti Has­san, Pari­neeti Cho­pra, and Im­ran Khan ( whew)!

This spe­cial is­sue is also where Cosmo takes a very im­por­tant stand— against do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. Sup­port­ing us are some of Tin­sel­town’s most-wanted men, in­clud­ing Shahrukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Prateik, Neil Nitin Mukesh, and Sidhartha Mallya. Turn to page 212 to learn about our Real Men Don’t Hit Women cam­paign.

And while we’re thrilled to have so many Bol­ly­wood big­gies cel­e­brate with us, at Cosmo we’re very clear that it’s you, our reader, who will al­ways be the real star for us. And to thank you for be­ing such fab­u­lous (and in­volved) read­ers for 16 years, we’ve put to­gether a mega give­away, with hun­dreds of fab­u­lous prod­ucts for you to take home. Have fun win­ning them, and don’t for­get to tell me how you liked this is­sue!

Till next month,
