Peace and love to all," Sonam tweeted Earlier this week, a Twitter user wrote: "Sonam, it's because of people like you, who don't use public transport or less fuel consumption vehicles. You know that your luxury car gives three or four km per litre mileage and 10/20 ACs in your house are equally responsible for global warming. First control your pollution. In response, Sonam tweeted: "And it's because of men like you that women find it difficult to use public transport for fear of being harassed." The Khoobsurat actress uses the digital platform to promote her films, fashion label and also to speak up on various issues including harassment.

Malaika Arora: Women Should Call Out Perpetrators To Create Safe Work Environment


img

Malaika Arora says it is important to create safe working environment for women and believes the only way to achieve that is if women come out and name perpetrators. In the wake of the #MeToo movement gaining momentum in Bollywood, film personality Malaika Arora says it is important to create safe working environment for women and believes the only way to achieve that is if women come out and name perpetrators. After actor Tanushree Dutta alleged harassment by Nana Patekar on a film set, a debate has opened up about the safety of women in a professional space. Malaika, who has featured in several films and has been a former model, is aware of the importance of women safety in the entertainment industry. "We can keep talking about it that we want to work in a safe environment. But the only way we can achieve that is when we talk about it and actually call out the supposed perpetrators. That's the only way," Malaika told PTI. "If someone is violating your space, dignity, life, if you won't talk no one will know. Everytime you step out of the house you can't be in the fear that oh my God my work space is going to be a hell whole. We need to change this," she added. For both, the modelling and the film industry, the perception has been that these are tricky places to work in, especially for women and Malaika says the mentality that everyone is "easy" to get needs to change. "There's tons of opportunities in front of you. A lot of people feel it's very easy just because they wear a short skirt or drink and smoke, they label a girl. "Apparently that's what makes her easy for anybody to prey on. That mentality needs to change. She's a woman and that's her choice to do what she wants," she added. Malaika will be seen as a mentor in the fourth season of India's Next Top Model on MTV. The former VJ says this year the emphasis will be not only on the way models look but also their backstory. "It's now about the journey from where they've come, how they made it Mumbai and their dreams and aspirations. We really tap into their journey. It gives us a better insight into the girls, some of them don't have money, don't know how to put on a lipstick but by the end of it they just transform." Malaika is seen on different reality shows on TV but has largely stayed away from acting on the big screen, something which she doesn't feel is a "necessity." "Film industry has given me so much love even though I'm not an actress. I really appreciate that. In today's day and age, it isn't just about the big screen anymore. With the online space taking over, it has become larger than life. That's where you should be. So never say never," she says.

Deepika Padukone: Me Too Movement Is Not A Man Versus Woman Debate, It's About Righ


img

Deepika Padukone said that the Me Too movement is about the victory of right over wrong and should not be reduced to men versus women debate. Deepika and actor Ranveer Singh, who made a joint appearance at a recent event on Friday, were asked to comment on the raging Me Too movement in Bollywood. She said: "For me, the Me Too movement is not about gender. It's about the victory of right over wrong. So anyone who faces any sort of discrimination or any sort of abuse, I think we as a people must support that person. It's not about a woman or a man or female vs male, let's not get confused in that conversation." While not directly addressing Tanushree Dutta's allegations against Nana Patekar, Ranveer said gender irrespective, any kind of harassment is unacceptable. "Harassment per se, is wrong. Harassment of anyone. Women, men... Any person being harassed is wrong, whether it is in the workplace, public place, the street, at home... harassment is wrong. Right now there is something that has happened, and there are all kinds of speculations, but if it has happened, it takes a lot of courage to speak about it. "You've been through some very disturbing experience. It takes courage to speak publicly about it. Therefore you must consider what the person is saying. But it's inconclusive yet, so we are confused about what actually happened. But if it has, it is absolutely wrong and I condemn it emphatically. It is beyond gender... Harassment of any kind. If you maliciously act against anyone, it is absolutely wrong," Ranveer said, eliciting loud applause from the audience.

Varun Dhawan: People Took Some Time To Realize That I'm A Good Actor


img

Actor Varun Dhawan, enjoying success of his recently released Sui Dhaaga, has said that people took some time to realize that he is a good actor. Varun Dhawan was interacting with media at the success meet of 'Sui Dhaaga' along with his co-actors Anushka Sharma, Raghuveer Yadav, Yamini Das and Sawan Tank on Friday in Mumbai. Varun has worked in critically acclaimed films such as Badlapur and October. Post-Sui Dhaaga, there is a talk of him becoming a strong contender for National Film Awards for his impressive performance in the film. Talking about the audience's changing perspective towards him over the years, Varun said, "I don't know how to react when people talk about my work. My career has been bit funny until now." He said when he started off, people would call him a 'chocolate boy' and they didn't talk about his acting. "They would say he is there because of his body. Now, I have entered sixth year of my career, and this year, people have talked about my performances. So, it is very encouraging for me," he said. "I always felt that I am a good actor, but I think it took some time for people to realize that. I am genuinely thankful to the audience because that's what matters to me," said the actor. 'Sui Dhaaga' is based on 'Make in India' campaign launched by the government in 2014, which was aimed at promoting the country's indigenous industries. Since its release, 'Sui Dhaaga' has managed to collect Rs.62.50 crore in India and has crossed Rs 100 crore figure combining domestic and international markets. On the success of 'Sui Dhaaga', Varun said, "It's a mixture of content and commerce. So, it feels really nice when a common man appreciate your performance. This film is a tribute to a common man." Varun Dhawan will be seen in Dharma Productions Kalanka along with Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha in lead roles.

Richa Chadha On Singing Debut: It Was Happy Accident


img

Actress Richa Chadha says making her debut as a singer with Punjabi track 'Gwandian from Dr. Zeus' album Global Injection, was a decision that came about as a "happy accident". What drew her to come up with a song? "It was a happy accident at best. I met with some friends and they were looking for a vocalist. I hummed and they asked me to record it. We were done with the whole thing in about 5 hours," Richa told IANS over email. The song, launched on Thursday, features the dynamic duo Dr.Zeus and Zora Randhawa and Richa Chadha with her Fukrey co-star Varun Sharma. Its video has already received over 1,757,750 views. "Gwandian is a party track and also could be a wedding song. Hence, we didn't want to shoot it in a typical fashion. We wanted to give it a family feel and make it relatable for people who live in big cities in apartment complexes," she said. Is the response encouraging enough to follow it up with another track? "Sure. Since I am an actor first and not a singer, if anyone wants to collaborate with me, I am more than happy to," said Richa, who is not opposed to the idea of singing for a film. "Why not? If some one trusts me with it, why not?" As a listener, she enjoys light Hindustani classical music "because it's vast".

Anupam Kher: Indian Cinema Will Always Remain Important For Me


img

From working in Indian films for over three decades to achieving global fame with several international projects, veteran actor Anupam Kher, who is currently in the US shooting for his new American series "New Amsterdam", says he can never overlook Indian cinema for foreign projects. "It feels good when I get recognition for my international movies and shows, but for me, my own (Indian) cinema is very much important. When I am in some foreign country, I always introduce myself as, 'I am an international actor from India'. "Being an Indian actor, I cannot overlook our cinema. And I feel there is no dearth of South Asian actors in world cinema because it completely depends upon the person whether he/she wants to act in international projects or not. Our Indian cinema is self-sufficient in its own way," Anupam told IANS over phone from New York. After playing pivotol roles in Oscar-nominated Hollywood movies like Silver Linings Playbook and The Big Sick, the 63-year-old is currently working in medical drama New Amsterdam. According to Anupam, he has "reinvented" himself by essaying the role of Vijay Kapoor in the show. "Through 'New Amsterdam', one of the main things I have learnt is the relationship between doctors and patients. For this show, we are shooting in a real hospital, so I often get a chance to meet patients and doctors. Interacting with the patients made me understand the real value of relations and emotions. "Now I know what families go through if their loved ones are battling with some illness. I am evolving as a person with this project." As the show is already on air and is garnering great response from viewers, Anupam considers this project a "huge achievement". Like Anupam always says, "Kucch bhi ho sakta hai (anything can happen)", seeing his journey so far, he wonders how god has forever been kind to him. Be it his negative role in Dushmani or his comic avatar in Haseena Maan Jayegi, the versatile actor, who has been entertaining people with his performances for over 30 years. He has also been feted with civilian honours like the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan. "A young boy from Shimla who dreamt of becoming an actor, successfully paved a path in Bollywood and is now working in Hollywood. What else could I have asked for? I feel blessed that god has always been kind to me. This project has given me a different kind of achievement. I always wanted to do something different and now I have reinvented and explored my new side with 'New Amsterdam'," he added. Apart from his international projects, Anupam is also preparing for his next Hindi film The Accidental Prime Minister, a biopic based on the life of former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Anupam, who plays Manmohan Singh in the film, underwent transformation to get into the role. He says it is one of the most challenging roles he has ever done. The actor said: "It took 4-5 months to make my body language similar to Manmohanji and a complete month for having control over my voice. It was not like 'Go inside (the make-up room) and come out (dressed) as Manmohan Singh'. The character demanded huge hard work and I tried my best to play the role with sincerity and conviction. "Portraying Dr Manmohan Singh's life on-screen was like a scientist working on his/her discoveries and theories because it is not easy to represent someone who is known by the world. Manmohan Singh is a politician and leader of this generation. People know everything about him. I hope I have done justice to his character."
