Scathing yet saliently amusing

The title is my description of the Esquire article describing the Bollywood Movie Awards. The article, "Booray for Bollywood" is terribly funny even if it is a bit unkind.

I'm pretty sure the pop artist described is Raghav but I'm awfully curious to know which actor did the fugly striptease. Beth and I vote for Salman. If you know the answer, please let us in on the secret...

I need to ask Danny who his tailor is. I want the hook up! [Seriously, anybody know where I can get a Babli-esque kurta? Holla!]

Thanks girlie. I might actually try that...

What Danny Glover is wearing is called a 'sherwani' which usually comes in a trouser, top and scarf set - sherwanis are formal Indian menswear. 'Kurtas' are a casual Indian menswear. The closed-necklines on sherwanis are in fact the inspirations for the design of the US Navy's formal uniform... USA is very multicultural and its Americana are always based on another nation's culture.

Yes, this is a sherwani since it looks more like a blazer than a shirt (kameez). Kurtas may also come in a scarf and trouser (salwar) set and can be formal menswear.
