The Young’uns

Comment image 62


The young’uns attended the MxS Launch on Saturday evening with most of them wearing mini-skirts except for Navya who sported a sequin dress from her Mom’s newly launched label.

Of them all, loved Ananya’ outfit the most but her makeup was heavy handed that it distracted quite a bit. Have a favorite?

P.S. Suhana is also wearing an MxS top.

  1. I think Suhana looks lovely! What beautiful hair and bronzed skin. As much as people are negative towards her, it’s nice to see someone of a darker complexion and with different features who is getting mainstream attention. I hope things go well for her.

  2. These girls are so pretty, but none of them have the spark that a Priyanka or a Deepika or a Katrina have. I dread the future of Bollywood.

  3. What the heck is there to love in Ananya’s outfit? It’s a bra top and mini skirt, nothing that you don’t find in high street labels. Ridiculous rubbish in the name of fashion, by a star daughter turned ‘designer’. All the outfits are awful and have no business being called ‘designer’.

    • It is not about complexion but features. Kareena is considered beautiful because of her features. Not every fair skinned female is beautiful and not every dusky one is exotic. It is so simple to understand. People unnecessarily complicate it. 🙂

      • perhaps you would say the same about karishma as well,features over complexion indeed,do u live in india??even aishwarya used to get criticised during her younger days as she was not fair enough for some people then ,

        • @aspa – Goodness, you really have an ax to grind over this complexion point! If that was the case, we would neither have had supermodels like Mehr or Noyonika, nor beauty pageant winners like Priyanka or Diana Hayden! Kajol was a dark beauty during her heyday in the 90s and even later we had Bipasha etc.

          yes, there are some people who do value fairness above all else, and thats sad. but really, its no where near as vociferous as you make it out to be with your “typical indian mentality comment”

          • sorry i can vouch that all these women had to face the stgma bcos of their skin tone many times in their lives despite all their achievements,remember priyanka talking about her aunt calling her kaali,
            the stigma starts from a childs birth,whole world knows that indians are obsessed with fair skin,that is why i said typical indian mentality

            • Unless you are personal friends with all of them (mehr, noyonika, kajol etc) – ill take that comment with a pinch of salt 🙂
              and by your logic – every country in the west is obsessed with tanning.. lets not paint an entire country of billions in just 1 stroke, is all im saying. Anyway – Peace!

              PS – i live in india – since that seems to be a point you raised up-stream.

              • there is hardly any fairness obsession noticeable among bollywood folk or in the indian modelling world,iam talking about the general indian public ,attitudes need to change,

            • It’s true the skin color bias.. even for actresses. Fairer actresses get loved instantly.. darker ones are told ‘Kitni kaali dikhti hai’ =p heard this about a lot of fabulous and dark actresses.. look at Kajol.. after a brilliant time she’s whitewashing herself now! Even male actors face it though.

              On an aside: this blog could also stir social issue conversations.. threads will cross 50 ?

      • I think I like Karishma and Kareena for their fabulous skins and we know it is coming from lifestyle changes and I appreciate that sort of rigor. I have often seen Kareena and Karishma following Rujuta Divekar’s sensible food habits about eating local, doing everything in moderation and eating Indian food, not exotic broccoli. In England, people eat broccoli because it is rich in Se and Vit C but Indian soil is not rich in Se so if it is not there in soil you won’t get it in your vegetables. It is sensible food advice based on common sense.

  5. OMG ! Why are all these young kids collectively hell bent on flaunting their bodies so blatantly, that too in such trashy vulgar clothes ?! These tacky clothes reflect no class or personality whatsoever. Do their mothers even notice or advise them on what to or rather what not to wear in the public domain ? I am getting a serious case of sore eyes just looking at them !

    • They are all clones of Kendall and Kylie, two other overexposed children. Sad that the likes of those two are now considered role models by these kids. There are so many other examples to look upto , girls. There really should be no need to grow up too soon.

  6. Their Dads (yes Dads, all Moms have a phony “career”) are millionaires, billionaires or trillionaires. And these girls looks so wrong.
    I cant even use that word to describe them it would be offensive
    Whyyyy?

    Why cant they grow up normally? What are they afraid of? Why is greed for attention and fame? Twenty years from now if they look at these pictures will it make them proud?

    They have zero achievements to date. Not one… achievement not a single one of them. Indian media will indoctrinate us that this is fashion and they are the next Smita Patils and Tabus

    So so sad

    • Media is just as sold.. they are the ones getting the star kids clicked way before they become stars!! Recently Suhana was on cover of vogue.. if I’m correct. Read the cover page story! Seriously nothing against them but this whole flow of tiny, thin, curated star kids is so desperate.

    • this is the way all the rich posh girls dress up especially if theyve had their education abroad,if their parents are hell bend on teaching them indian values like aishwarya or ambanis they may turn up different,but i doubt if aishwara would have as much hold on her daughter as she has now when she reachers her teenage years ,dont judge them,they are just being teenagers

    • I agree about the pressure. The other issue is they usually never have a Plan B. Have you seen any star kid taking a route that doesn’t give preference to their privilege? Maybe a doctor or a chartered accountant or even a professor in college? I would also like to think about laziness and inability to think beyond shortcut to success. Making it big here is hard too but they do get an upper hand for at least getting the first break!

      • Don’t forget if you are Abhishek Saif Athiya Alia or Aishwarya or the other 100 married to or born to or a sibling with a famous last name
        Then you get hundreds of “first breaks “

        And we categorically get told “the movie crossed 500 crores” after first weekend

  8. Its soooooo sad when such young girls think that the road to attention is to wear short clothes, flaunt their bodies and just do away with classy chic clothing. Teenagers can also cover up and look beautiful.
    Suhanas ‘skirt’… how is that clothing? How do you sit decently in that?
    And the question is why? Do we expect boys of that age to turn up at events half dressed? Where is our culture and our sense of style? This looks like the set of a kjo movie… the girls look the same with no individuality or sense of definition. Short clothes, open hair, face dipped in make up… off we go to the grown ups party! I respect both kajol and karishma for not flaunting their daughters like this.
    Girls should also be taught that its not their bodies but their achievements and their mind which they should exhibit.

  9. I’m so disturbed by this picture…They are evidently the new crop of actresses that will be shoved down our throats soon and absolutely none of them stand out with their individuality. Its like they’ve all been prototyped. Such terribly tacky dressing & posturing.

  10. Unfortunately, there is so much personal attacking going on here. Folks are critiquing their style by blaming the young girls for the families they are born into. These young girls are doing nothing wrong by enjoying their privilege, just as each one of us do. You don’t like their style- say so. Why bring their families (mothers being phones, mothers not teaching them) in?!? Such poor taste!!

    It’s not for them to give away their privilege. It’s for media (and perhaps blogs like P&P) to take a stand by not featuring folks who they don’t believe are deserving, if the issue bothers them at all (and it’s also fine if it doesn’t… they are a fashion blog after all, and not an acting talent critic)

      • The commentators react to what this blog is for…fashion. and this being teen fashion, being put out as teen fashion is all kinds of wrong. And i think its time someone said it rather than sit back and let it being absorbed by young girls as the norm when it shouldnt be.

    • Parents are supposed to influence and show direction to the child?? I think.. even if it’s a star parent. These appearances are so evident of what the upbringing is like.. it’s out there to see.. nobody is criticising in air. Your rich, a star, or whatever the hell, you could still be simple.. this is like spoilt in choice. I have a lot of friends who used to dress like that in teenage.. years back.. all of a certain ‘rich’ privilege.

      • They are at a party, for heavens sake!! I can’t believe people are judging their personalities and their parents’ for wearing these outfits.

        I wonder what is worse for an 18 year old – wearing tiny skirts , or the continuous vicious online feedback and character judgment from public who don’t even know these young ladies.

        Any way, I really wish personal attacks would be moderated P&P. I remember the good ol days when you were more judicious about what comments to allow.

    • Yes I am sorry I should have complimented the phony career woman Shweta Bachhan on ripping off famous designer’s style (Diet Sabya) and “launching” her career with Daddyji’s help (FYI Jaya quit acting after marriage:)
      I repeat, most Bollywood wives have phony careers. The girls in this picture couldnt afford this fame or limelight if it had to be bought with their Moms’ “career”

      Thats the truth

      Their Daddys pay for it all

  13. Many of her designs are blatant copies. Check diet sabya or simply Google. Shame on all the “designers” who make money on others’ talents.

  14. Navya’s dress appears as though she draped a chunni at the last minute.. Designer indeed! As someone said, they are just raking in the moolah and attention .. when someone literally their mother age is getting away with it, why should they not try!?

    • And that terrible dress is priced at 55K+ INR in the website. I can buy a good US designer wear for far less. I don’t understand how they could even come up with that. Are they so far removed from reality that they think they can get away with anything!?!? Entitlement much?

  16. The picture is sad. For many reasons:
    1. The clothes in themselves are terrible. I understand the money, the constant exposure to glamor and living in tiny bubbles where no one interacts with the regular people in India BUT these are terrible clothes. The dressing is super haggard and indecently short. Fashionable or not, millionaire or not, these clothes are very very ugly. I have seen high-fashion labels with much prettier outfits. The irony that people go so badly dressed to a label launch is too hard to ignore.
    2. I understand nepotism. Film making is always a “family” business in bollywood and unless there is a proper legal industry like mindset and rules created, nepotism cannot be ignored. It is useless to keep debating about it when the bare fact is families make movies, the studios are family owned and connections land movies. It is no surprise that these girls will be the next crop of actresses. However, as someone pointed out, it is sad to see acting as an “easy” route when it is actually very hard with the constant judgement and very high risk of failure. But money obscures such facts.
    3. I miss the old days of actresses having an “aura”. I have seen these girls and their IG pictures (public or not) being published every single day. Swimsuit, friends, dinner, lunch…so much exposure will only make it harder and harder to remove the actor from the person guaranteeing failure and risk of fading out too early. Jhanvi’s debut is a classic example – she was always Jhanvi, the gym-going, ultra-fashionable, overly made-up Sridevi’s daughter and never a Rajasthani girl or whatever character she had in that movie.
    4. These pictures only show that showbiz and the glamor world are very far removed from reality. The upbringing, the parties, the exposure, the infidelity, divorces and publicity wreak havoc on young minds and these people are just from another planet. Looking at these teenagers, it is hard to find them “relatable” and goal-worthy. I find it funny when these bollywood folks try to be “role models” for the regular people when their mindset, values and upbringing are out here for all to see and comment.
    Judgemental much? Maybe. The least they can do is be fashion-goals. Currently, they are failing spectacularly in that too.

  17. They don’t intend to act, their goal really is to be famous, because famous = endorsements, product placement, ads, and ribbon cutting ceremonies = moolah.

    If in between all this they also end up in a few hit movies, never mind any real scope for acting, that’s just bonus and more moolah. They are playing at movie career like one would play at a roulette. Spin it enough number of times and you can win at least once and then milk it to the max.

    But like any game of chance, too many people trying to game the system leads to two things. One the house wins bigly (in this case production houses like Karan’s, because they don’t care about talent and they are going to lower remuneration) and two, the system itself breaks (too many people competing for the same thing).

    So no, none of them actually aim to be actresses, they just aim to be popular. But let’s actually hope there are enough numbers like them that they break the system.
