    NOT AN ARTICULATE,ARTISTIC,SOBER LAUNCH.LOOKS LIKE ANY COMMERCIALLY MOTIVATED COFFEE TABLE ISSUE.LOOKING FORWARD TO AD INTERNATIONAL FOR UPLIFTMENT AND NOT DOWN GRADING.LAYOUTS,CONTENTS NOT UP TO THE INDIAN AESTHETIC STANDARDS.

    I love the way AD has faked it. On reading it I realised its not even Deepika’s home! Now that’s the most desperate move ever. Shame on you Conde nast.

    AWFUL! Sick of the need to put b’wood “stars” on every god damn thing! Deplorable.

    Umm…have they forgotten they’re an architecture magazine? Can the Conde Nast group not sell mags without celebs on their covers?

    So AD comes to India and decides to forgo the architecture and become yer another downmarket film magazine that markets itself with starlets who show skin. And Mumbai Boss decides to cheapen itself and show us pictures of Deepika’s legs for no reason as well. If only we could get one Indian media outlet that didn’t pander to the lowest common denominator all the time. We already a gazillion Bollywood tabloids. We don’t need this in Mumbaiboss. And the less said about AD’s joke of a first issue, the better,

    Striking!… Great styling… Deepika compliments the setting!

    Hey she looks smokin’ hot!…and her home looks good man though pictures look a little dark.

    This is just ridiculous. Bollywood star on the front? In her so called “home”? Get real AD.

  9. Éclat |

    Does even AD have to have a Bollywood starlet on the cover? And that shoot inside… What architecture, what interiors? Only Ms. Padukone and a really horribly styled set. Meh.
