The Karnataka government has decided not to grant permission to Sunny Leone’s New Year’s Eve show in Bengaluru following protests from right-wing groups

The Karnataka government has decided not to grant permission to Sunny Leone’s New Year’s Eve show in Bengaluru following protests from right-wing groups. The Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) and some other organisations have been opposing the event as they consider Sunny an ‘assault’ on the city’s culture.

For the past week, KRV members have been taking out rallies, burning effigies of the actor and even threatening suicide. “Don’t bring her [Leone] here. People are opposed to the event. Let them [organisers] hold events related to Kannada culture and literature, which is our heritage,” Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy has reportedly said.

According to latest reports, Shah Rukh Khan is apparently planning to surprise his fans with the title of the film by New Year. His fans, who are eagerly waiting to see King Khan play a pint-sized character, have been referring to the project as ‘dwarf film’.

The Baadshah of Bollywood is reported to be playing a dwarf in the film due to which the film is expected to be high on VFX and the post-production to consume more time after the shoot is wrapped up.

Helmed by Himanshu Sharma, the film is scheduled to release on Christmas 2018.

Bollywood diva Malaika Arora shut down a hater who called her a ‘s**t woman’ and accused her of living off ex-husband Arbaaz Khan’s money and divorcing him for alimony.

It all started when a Mumbai-based photographer posted a picture of Malaika Arora in shorts. In the comments, a troll attacked Malaika for feeding on her ex-husband Arbaaz Khan’s money and claimed she divorced him for alimony.

A user going by the name ‘feelgoodfabric’ wrote, “This what these s**t women do these days. Marry a rich guy then divorce him for huge alumni. And then have fun with that alumni. Why do u need alumni if u are capable of earning… I respect ppl and not the gender…. (sic)”

He added, “Her life now is aal about wearing short clothes, going to gym or salon, enjoying the vacation. Do u seriously have any work… Or just feeding urself on the husband’s money (sic)”

He also commented, “The word is alimony (sic)”

Malaika Arora hit back at the hater and commented, “I donot indulge in such conversation coz it’s below my dignity,but I jus had to @feelgoodfabric coz u certainly got to get ur damn facts right before spewing shit n slagging me off when u know nothing bout me.except sit n pass judgement on other people’s life.i seriously suggest u find something to do with ur time coz u clearly have nothing better to do in life (sic)”

Here are screenshots of the comments:

Malaika gave a fitting reply to her troll, don’t you agree?

Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora have always maintained cordial relations with each other. The two were granted divorce in May. The couple, who married in 1998, had filed for it on mutual consent last November.

The custody of their son Arhaan remains with Malaika, while Arbaaz has access whenever he wants.

Malaika and Arbaaz have not let their divorce come in the way of spending quality time with their son Arhaan and other family members. Take a look:

Despite their split, Arbaaz insists his equation with Malaika’s family has remained unchanged. In anearlier interview with mid-day, Arbaaz said, “My association with Malaika spans over two decades. So, I have always been on good terms with her family. We celebrated special occasions earlier too. If things haven’t gone well between us, it doesn’t mean that the equation with the family changes. They still have a lot of love and affection for me and I have respect for them. Malaika wasn’t with us on New Year’s, but was there a few days before that. But, that’s not the point. We are very amicable.”

The two do not want their teenage son, Arhaan, to be affected by their separation. “We are responsible parents and don’t want our child to get affected. We want him to grow up in a healthy atmosphere rather than be worried if his parents will confront each other when they meet. Malaika and I are mature individuals and don’t want anyone around us to be affected,” he said.

While the rest of the country was welcoming the New Year with much joy and fervour, women in Bengaluru were trying to protect their lives from the hands of reprehensible eve-teasers, who left no stone unturned in making the New Year’s Eve a nightmare for them.

From groping and harassing to beating and sexually molesting the women, the Bengaluru incident has yet again brought to light a question that was shoved deep beneath the ground for some time now – Can women ever feel safe in this country? Some of our ‘honourable’ ministers are trying to defend the act with their comments that blame the women and the Western culture for this mishap, but the fact remains that the country has once again failed to provide protection to the women and are only trying to find ways to justify their dereliction.

However, with their overwhelming response, people have proved that they are not going to stay quiet this time and will do whatever it takes to fight for the justice. Bollywood too has been very vocal about the entire incident and has been constantly condemning the entire incident. Earlier, actor Akshay Kumar ( strongly spoke it and now actress Anushka Sharma has spoken up against this horrendous act.

— Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) 5 January 2017

In this emotional post on Twitter, Anushka wrote, “In all of this I wonder – why did the bystanders do nothing? Whoever stood & watched, is as much at fault as the perpetrators.” “So it’s not just those men but also us, as a society, that failed on the night,” she further added.

Condemning the insensitive statements made by the politicians on women, Anushka said that one should teach their kids to respect women, instead of making them feel more entitled and important. She ended her post, she wrote “Save your sons from turning into such beasts. And spare us the grief.”

Despite all this, there was one troll who tried to make fun of Anushka by picking the issue of casting couch in Bollywood.

Tu na bhai , Kabhi kuch naa likh ????????

— Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) 5 January 2017

But given the badass Anushka is, she did not mince her words and gave that troll a piece of her mind.

maxresdefaultSuperstar Shah Rukh Khan on Wednesday urged people not to drink and drive, especially around the New Year’s Eve.
Shah Rukh posted a 20-second-long video on Twitter.

In that, he says, “Party ka mahaul hai khoob party karo. Majnu banke laila ke saath naacho, Lekin sharaab peeke gaadi mat chalao. (Live up the party mood. Dance with your beloved, but don’t drink and drive.”

He captioned the video: “This NYE (New Year’s Eve), be smart not stupid. Don’t drink and drive. Love u all. Raees ki suno.”

The ‘Laila’ in his tweet is a promotional plug for his forthcoming film “Raees”, which features the song “Laila main laila”, a remixed version of the evergreen peppy dance track.

Set against the backdrop of the prohibition in Gujarat, the film touches upon the way alcohol industry crumbled followed by several illegal activities.

Shah Rukh essays the title role of Raees, a bootlegger. The film also has actor Nawazzuddin Siddiqui chasing him to expose his smuggling activities.

“Raees” is directed by Rahul Dholakia and is slated to release on January 25, 2017.
