Hope for the Indian judicial system: Salman Khan sentenced to 5 years in prison

This news makes me really happy, at least some hope for the Indian judicial system.

Bollywood super star Salman Khan who has been accused of drink driving, hit & run (killing 1 person), killing protected animals, domestic violence, and manipulating Indian judiciary system for over 12-13 years was finally found guilty of culpable homicide, and was sentenced to 5 years in prison.

Salman Khan has been manipulating the system for way to long.

After killing people and animals, bringing Black money from underworld and abusing women left right center for years he created this brand called Being Human to show the world how philanthropist he is. What a joke.

Glad that he will be away for 5 years and now hopefully producers won’t have to spend that money on silly scripts and good scripts and talent gets more money that they deserve.

Bollywood celebs seems to be in complete support of Salman Khan, completely ignoring the the victim, this shows that in india if your poor then you  are Nobody.

Wife of the victim Nurulah Mahbob Sharif, said she had been waiting a long time for justice, adding: “We have gone through a lot of hardships.”

“Everything is so expensive and we hardly have any income. My kids are always under stress,”

All those Indian celebs and fans standing by Salman, make sure it’s not on the pavement your standing on.

lets celebrate this great day with some Salman Khan memes.

Rang Rasiya: A movie about father of modern Indian art Raja Ravi Varma

Rang Rasiya_Colors Of Passion_Raja_Ravi_Varma_painting_posterAfter almost a decade Director Ketan Mehta’s Movie ‘Rang Rasiya’ finally hit screens today in India.

Rang Rasiya (Colors Of Passion) is about my favourite Indian painter and father of modern Indian art Raja Ravi Varma, who gave faces to Indian gods, and made saree a popular Indian garment.

I had a great opportunity to watch english version of this movie last year at Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Its an interesting movie on censorship of Art.

Raja Ravi Varma was dragged to court for painting God and Goddesses in half nudes and how he eventually fought back and won the case.

Both strikingly beautiful and audacious, Ketan Mehta’s film charts the life of the great Indian artist Raja Ravi Varma (played by Randeep Hooda), from his early days under the patronage of a King of Kerala, moving on to British Bombay in the late 1800s, where he makes his fortune.

Here the genius gives birth to Indian modern art and helps inspire the independence movement and the dawning of Indian cinema with his depictions, which bring to life the Hindu gods and goddesses. He must first find his muse who comes in the lavish form of Sugandha (Nandana Sen). Varma’s fascination for his model turns into a torrid, paint-smeared, love affair, which is reflected in his art. The religious power brokers see his increasingly eroticised work as dangerous and Varma is dragged to the British courts to be tried for blasphemy.

Mehta’s homage offers not only a spectacular insight into a turning point in Indian history, but also questions the freedom of the artist in contemporary society. Not to be missed!

Other good reason to watch this movie is because my friend Feryna Wazheir, a very talented British Indian actress who plays a parsi Journalist for Times of India in this movie. she was a last women in Raja Ravi Varma’s life.

Raja Ravi Varma (29 April 1848 – 2 October 1906) was an Indian painter and artist from the princely state of Kilimanoor (presently in Kerala) who achieved recognition for his paintings depicting scenes from Indian literature and mythology including the epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. He is considered among the greatest painters in the history of Indian art and his paintings are considered to be among the best examples of the fusion of Indian traditions with the techniques of European academic art. Varma’s paintings portrayed sari-clad women in graceful manner which became an important motif of that time, reproductions being found in many homes.

RIP Jiha Khan

RIP Jiah Khan

I am Shocked and saddened about this incidence

Jiah Khan (British Bollywood actress) allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself. Police claimed that she was heartbroken after a failed relationship with the son of an actor couple, which possibly drove her to take the step at her home last night.

The body of Jiah, 25, was found hanging at her ‘Sagar Sangeet’ residence in Juhu where she lived with her mother and sister who were not present when she ended her life.

25 is not really the age to run out of all the options, can’t imagine what pushed her to the edge.

I had met her twice, first time at London Indian Film Festival and 2nd time for a coffee meet in Soho, London for ‘100 years of Indian cinema’ documentary we were pitching to BBC.

She was very passionate about Indian cinema, and really wanted to go back and work in India, after 3 years gap.

She was brilliant in her debut film ‘Nishabd’ with Amitabh Bachchan, based on the novel Lolita. She had also acted with Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar.

I remember her as a very beautiful, bright and polite girl.

It’s sad to loose young Talent

No Kiss please, we’re Indian

No Kiss please, we’re Indian

kissing is not allowed but pissing on streets in India is Definitely allowed.

Two recent controversial kisses recently are choking the land of Kama Sutra.

1st A lawyer has filed a criminal case against a kiss between India’s two biggest heart-throbs — former Miss World Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan In their Bollywood blockbuster, Dhoom 2.
and 2nd is The picture of Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje greeting Biocon’s CMD Kiran Majumdar Shaw has for no reason kicked up a huge political storm, even within a section of the BJP. They’re all describing the friendly kiss between the two as obscene.

In Bollywood Kissing on screen is nothing new now, Amir Khan, Abhishek Bachan, Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan did it before, but the leading lady of Bollywood does it then it’s obscene.
Poor Aishwarya Rai as always at the receiving end of jealous and foolish people. When she avoids scenes, she is cold, when she does it even mildly, she gets sued.
Cmon, we have to learn to live along and live with. Can’t keep stopping and fighting over such petty issues. It is a talent to be able to act and these actors have just done their job. The lawyer seriously needs to get a life.

What’s the big deal about Ms Raje and Ms Shaw air-kissing each other at the concluding session of the World Economic Forum in Delhi? It was just the bad camera angle that gives the impression of a kiss on the lip, in what is just a friendly embrace. But one television channel picked up the picture and went with a sensational headline ‘Maharani Ka Chumban’ flashing the photograph again and again.

“Men are uncomfortable with women in male-dominated fields. A man doing something ‘Westernized’ like a kiss would have been fine. But with women like Aishwarya Rai, everything is scrutinised,

We Indians are hypocrites, aren’t we..? We have 2nd largest population in the world, and yet a kissing scene stirs a controversy…
How do we Indian make babies? By magic??
Great, ain’t it?

here is the kissing screen: Thank You
