Entertainment is no longer confined to movie nights with the extended family or patiently waiting until 8 p.m. to catch your favourite soap opera. TV, movies, fashion, art, music or even the news — the ways that we consume culture and use our free time has radically altered. In our latest issue, Made in Heaven actor, the web’s current It girl and our cover star Sobhita Dhulipala gets introspective with Richa Kaul Padte about being a celebrity in the age of the internet. Despite growing up disconnected in Visakhapatnam, the 27-year-old’s pithy Instagram captions prove that an aptitude for social media was simply lying dormant in her DNA, as was her star quality. Flip through our pages to find Nagma Mirajkar, whose 9 million-plus followers on Tik Tok are proof of the India 2.0 we are in, followed by our fashion team's modernistic spin on home-grown textiles. Vivek Tejuja, in the introductory piece for his column, Me, My Shelf & I, breaks down the available modern platforms for consuming books, while actor Puja Sarup and photographer Pulkit Mogha come together to discuss the queen-dominated drag culture in India and their own representations of queerness through art. Discover the individuals who are riding the crest of content’s new wave in our Entertainment issue, now on stands.
