1. Katrina Kaif Gives This Lady Cop a Major Thumbs Up

#Repost @officialhumansofbombay ・・・ “I grew up watching my brothers and uncles working in the police force. When the time came to pick a profession, I chose to be a police constable myself because I wanted to be able to protect myself and others without being dependent on anyone. Today however, I feel like because of a few incidents, we’re misunderstood on the whole. Everyone thinks we’re lazy, corrupt and that if they dial an emergency number it’s useless -- but let me tell you that I’ve attended to those emergency calls myself. I drive this van during the night slot, and if any woman in the locality I’ve been assigned calls 103, I will be there within a few minutes. Next time, trust in us and dial any emergency number…we won’t let you down.”

A post shared by Katrina Kaif (@katrinakaif) on

Katrina Kaif is supporting this lady cop’s message, which is meant to encourage people to trust the police force. While this lady says in her message that she became a police officer so that she didn’t have to rely on a man to feel safe, she also makes the point that the police force is often misunderstood. Katrina encourages women to call Police helpline numbers when they feel threatened, because there are honest and hardworking cops out there like this lady, who dedicate themselves to the safety of others.

The CBFC has cleared Priyanka Chopra’s upcoming Hollywood film Baywatch with an ‘A’ certificate with four verbal and one visual cuts. And what’s more, no bikini shots have been cut.

According to a report by DNA, this was not an easy decision for the CBFC to make. Nevertheless, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani spoke about how Indians should totally get used to the bikini.

3. Would Anurag Basu Make Kishore Kumar Biopic Without Ranbir Kapoor?

Director Anurag Basu says even if Ranbir Kapoor is unable to give dates for the biopic on legendary actor-singer late Kishore Kumar, he might start the film with another actor.

It (biopic on Kishore Kumar) is not shelved. I don’t know with whom I will make and when exactly. After Sanjay Dutt biopic Ranbir will be busy with his another film Dragon. I don’t want to wait for too long for the film, so if Ranbir can’t give dates this year then I will go with someone else (another actor).

While we debate over which star’s Cannes red carpet look this year is likely to go down in history, here’s a bit of a flashback. Shabana Azmi shared a stunning picture of herself with another legend Smita Patil and director Shyam Benegal from 1976 Cannes. They were there to promote their film Nishant.

Azmi’s jibe on the contemporary focus on clothes rather than the film is right on point too.
