Shakahari’s Beware. (Our Eyes) Are Devouring Some Mutton: Thumka Thursday

Shakahari’s Beware. (Our Eyes) Are Devouring Some Mutton: Thumka Thursday

I don’t know about everyone else, but there are definitely a few nights that are a little more than blurry because of external substances that became internal and  consequently effed with my memory. Luckily for me, (almost all of) my experiences were self-induced (and they may or may not have been the last four Saturdays). Sadly for the hottie in this video, his actions and memory have been altered by

It’s Time to Get DIRTY(ier) #Thumka Thursday

It’s Time to Get <em>DIRTY</em>(ier) #Thumka Thursday

Have you noticed how EVERYTHING right now is super retro? And by retro I mean 80s-90s (Does it scare anyone else to think that kids today think of the 90s as old?)  Along with the slap bracelets, neon, denim jackets and the resurgence of loose fitting men’s pants (thank god!), Bollywood too is all about the “old is gold” sentiment. Every other movie these days is a throwback to the

Don’t Go! Stay at Bolliday Holiday All Night! Thumka Thursdays: “Pardesi Pardesi”

Don’t Go! Stay at Bolliday Holiday All Night! Thumka Thursdays: “Pardesi Pardesi”

I may sound like the Weather Grinch, but I don’t really care. It’s December 1st and it’s bloody hot out! WTF?! As much as I’d like to live the Bollygay Baadshah lifestyle, I need the weather to start feeling a little less like Bombay more like The Himalayas. We are in New York, the Rockefeller Tree has been lit up already and everywhere you go, you’re bombarded with Christmas music.

Bolliday Holiday with The Banyan Tree Project

Have you caught the commercials during your favorite Hulu show about HIV in the South Asian community? If not, you’re clearly not watching the right shows. Well, we caught the extremely well produced PSA’s created by The Banyan Tree Project and are thrilled to be collaborating with them for the Bolliday Holiday party on Friday — which also happens to be the day after World Aids Day. One of the

Thumka Thursdays: A Butch Shilpa finds her “Jogan”

Thumka Thursdays: A Butch Shilpa finds her “Jogan”

How do you feel about Shilpa Shetty as a gay icon? She’s always been one in my dancey-Bolly brain with her undeniably fabulousness. Everything from the super lusterous locks (sure, that’s not a weave…and I look like Hrithik Roshan) to her liquid liner rimmed eyes, to her may-as-well-be lethal thumka, to her very own Bollywood love story, screams for every gay man to want to be her…or at least be

Thumka Thursdays: Madhuri Gives Sholay a Theme Song

Thumka Thursdays: Madhuri Gives Sholay a Theme Song

There are only two songs that, when they play over the Desilicious speakers, I toss my drink aside (and I NEVER waste a Ciroc coconut soda), throw on my invisible ghungroo and jump on the center box to bust out the film’s exact choreography in its entirety. One of those songs is Madhuri Dixit’s “Aaja Nachle.” From the first tinkle of payal, this song gets all the queens excited to
