Dear Reader,

Masala! - - INSIDE... - LEKHA MENON, ED­I­TOR

As we go to print, the ex­cite­ment for the Masala! Awards has reached sky high lev­els. Over the years, the month of De­cem­ber has al­ways come to be as­so­ci­ated with the Masala! Awards. The stars, the glory, the glam­orous night... and the pres­sure! Oh well, we en­joy it! This year is go­ing to be no dif­fer­ent and well, let’s just say that a big sur­prise is on her way!

When we talk about the best, how can we not men­tion Shah Rukh Khan? Did you know that this is SRK’S 30th year in show­biz? Yes! He first gained fame on telly in the TV se­ries Fauji that pre­miered in 1988! Now, as he awaits the re­lease of his big ticket film Zero, we found the per­fect per­son to pay tribute to him – his best friend and film­maker Farah Khan.

Farah pens a poignant, thought­ful and heart­felt es­say on the su­per­star. Filled with anec­dotes, shar­ing se­crets that we have never heard be­fore, this is one ar­ti­cle that will make you fall in love with Shah Rukh Khan all over again. Thank you Farah! (pg 22)

In other news, or rather, in the big­gest news, we take a close look at the Ran­veer-deepika wed­ding. The two stars kept the na­tion and mil­lions of their fans on ten­ter­hooks with their se­crecy. Se­ri­ously, there hasn’t been an­other wed­ding like this one! Oh wait, we have the Priyanka-nick nup­tials to cel­e­brate too! Love is cer­tainly in the air this De­cem­ber, what say? (pg16-17)

And since it’s De­cem­ber, it’s also the time to look back at the year that was. Don’t miss our year-end spe­cial where we cel­e­brate the movies like none other. Do our choices match yours? Let us know! (pg28)

Un­til next year!
