ACTOR OF THE MONTH

MW_VaaniXAsics

While many had written her off as arm candy, Vaani Kapoor surprised everybody with her performance as a trans-woman in Abhishek Kapoor’s Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui. With her measured acting and nuanced delivery, she reminded us of her sparkling performance in her debut film, Shuddh Desi Romance (2013), and showed us that she can be more than just a PYT. And with Shamshera coming up, opposite Ranbir Kapoor, 2022 looks like a very promising year for Vaani Kapoor.

While it might have been the venue for this year’s most talked-about Bollywood wedding, Six Senses Fort Barwara is much more than just a wedding destination. It is a rejuvenating getaway that helps you slow down, pampers your senses, and heals you from within. A 14th century fort has been intelligently restored to create the wellness sanctuary that is the Six Senses Fort Barwara. The luxury resort has 48 suites, three restaurants, and possibly one of the country’s best spa experiences. Situated in the heart of the Barwara village, the resort is a short drive away from the Ranthambore National Park. The decade-long restoration beautifully incorporates two palaces and two temples, and is a tasteful amalgamation of 14th century architecture with contemporary minimalistic sensibilities. It is an art fiend’s dream to explore the medieval sections of the property, still intact, steeped in history and folklore.

Along with a gorgeous spa that offers intensive Ayurvedic and other unique therapies like sound journeys, the resort has luxurious open spaces, pools and baths, studies stocked with potent local liquor, hosts regional activities and heritage walks, and conducts entertaining evenings with live performances around fire pits. Six Senses Fort Barwara is a multi-sensory experience, scoring high on sustainability, farm-to-table practices, and contemplative ambience and architecture.
