Marriage and Millionaires — not Related

A recent survey shows that China is home to nearly half a million millionaires … I don’t know but presume that these folks are dollar millionaires …

It’s good to see people choosing to live life on their terms like Kareena and Saif Ali Khan.

Also, Lara Dutta saying that she’s ‘seeing’ Mahesh Bhupati but not only him …

Sushmita Sen has always taken the road less traveled …
