Jugni Style founders Manjot Bains and Joti Dhesi are scouring Toronto's streets and A-list parties this week, looking for their favourite Bollywood fashionista, Sonam Kapoor. Follow their exploits as they travel to Toronto's hot spots, restos, high street and designer boutiques, and the IIFA Green Carpets. Do they find Sonam? Or Arjun Rampal, their second love? Tune in to find out.

Desperately Seeking Sonam: Day 2.5

O.M.G. Be still our tender hearts. Not only did we spot Anil Kapoor on his way to dinner with Salman Rushdie and Michael Ondaatje (the intellectual capital in that room is enough to make us swoon), but amazing stylist/producer/one-half-of-the-fashionable-Kapoor-sisters, Rhea Kapoor is in Toronto! So effing excited.

So after Yorkville, split with Joti who went to Fairmont Royal York's media pit to elbow her way to some star photography, while I took the tube to the Royal Ontario Museum for a rousing panel discussion on Bollywood, Hollywood and global cinema, starring super smarties Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi, who were joined by Lisa Ray, Kabir Bedi and producer Ajay Virmani. Developed small crush on Javed + Shabana. Sigh.

After traumatizing episode with a cat-sized rat sighting off of Bloor Street, regrouped with Joti at O&B for some light nosh before heading to the office. Exchanged celeb + media pit stories before collapsing over gluten-free pasta. Possible Sonam sighting. See photos below. Is Sonam hiding behind papa Anil??? Maybe! Just maybe…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also spotted, Bipasha Basu on her way to a private shopping event hosted by Bonnie Brooks at The Bay's fancy boutique, The Room. So stoked about our new fancy paparazzo camera and our mad skills – isn't that an amazing shot of her hair?

Next: IIFA Weekend officially starts. Press conferences, media briefings, private parties and patio meetings – we've got it all. Plus, our hunt for Sonam continues – will we meet sister Rhea? Twitter stalking – oops – Twitter talking continues.

 

Love,

Manjot
