What is it with actors and actresses—Akshay Kumar in Hindi, Shivraj Kumar and his brother Puneet in Kannada, Prabhu in Tamil, etc—so readily endorsing jewel stores, exhibitions and exchanges? Is it just a gold and glamour thing? Or are they just unavoidably susceptible to the lure and lucre of the advertising rupee? Here, the actress formerly known as Divya Spandana, at the inauguration of a jewellery show, at the palace grounds in Bangalore on Friday.

Like, bombers get scared looking at bombshells?
Now, what will those fools do with these kids?
Surely all that glitters is more than just gold
The best ice-candy melts before nice eye-candy
What it takes to smoothen some rough blades of grass
Denims, diamonds, Miss India and the Mahatma
See, a brand ambassador always gets good press
Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear
You are almost tempted to say ‘Intel Inside’
