College student Karishma Jalendra and her friends believe in the adage -- study hard and play harder.
So, while they do give serious attention to their studies, they also have a lot of fun hanging out at the malls that have cropped up in Mangalore over the last few years.
For those of you who came in late, Mangalore is where bride-to-be Aishwarya Rai was born. The light-eyed beauty belongs to the city's Bunt community, whose most famous branch are the Shettys, known for their hold over the Udipi hotel and small eateries business.
Karishma, who counts Ajay Devgan and Kajol amongst her favourite actors, thinks the "Aishwarya-Abhishek wedding is not happening."
Lookswise, she prefers the Rani Mukerji-Abhishek Bachchan pair to the Ash-Abhishek one. "It's not just me," she says. "A lot of youngsters here think the Ash-Abhi pairing is not happening."
Presenting a week-long special in which we bring you video clips of reactions from Mangalore and Mumbai about what people feel about Aishwarya-Abhishek's wedding.
