Bollywood’s silence around many burning issues is almost deafening. But the barbarism of the alleged abduction, brutal gang-rape and killing of an 8-year-old Bakheral girl in Kathua - a political ploy aimed at ousting the nomadic community from the area in J-K - has roused B-towners and other celebs.

While the usual articulate voices from the industry expressed their opinions on Twitter, some others also spoke up and pointed out the deplorable law and order situation in the country. They also invoked the Unnao rape case, where a four-time lawmaker and his siblings allegedly gang-raped a girl and are also the accused in her father’s custodial death.

What started out as a mid-air conversation five years ago is now culminating into a wedding for Masaan and Haraamkhor actress Shweta Tripathi and actor-rapper Chaitnya Sharma aka SlowCheeta on June 29.

"We met because both of us were stepping in for other actors. So, from Bombay (Mumbai), we met in Delhi to perform and hardly spoke throughout. On our way back, we were seated next to each other. It was a 5 a.m. flight, so obviously the plan was to doze off. But we started talking and that was that," Shweta recounted as she broke the news of her wedding to IANS.
