Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s glittering golden dress at the red carpet of the 69th Cannes Film Festival, left her husband Abhishek Bachchan truly awestruck.

Abhishek expressed his admiration for Aishwarya, whom he married in 2007, on social media.

Abhishek posted an image of the “Jazbaa” actress in black and white hue on his Facebook and Instagram accounts and captioned it as: “They say a picture speaks a 1000 words. Seeing this photo I can think of many more…”.

The photograph features Aishwarya’s side profile as she poses for shutterbugs in the gold designer beaded cape couture gown — designed by Kuwait’s Ali Younes — that she wore for her first appearance at this year’s edition of the Cannes movie extravaganza.

This time, the actress marked her 15th year at the Cannes Film Festival.

More rape cases being reported is a good thing: Naseeruddin Shah

Naseeruddin Shah

Mumbai, April 24: Iconic actor Naseeruddin Shah who feels disturbed about the recent barbaric rape and murder cases of young girls, says that more rape cases are reported to police and media these days, as compared to earlier, which is “a positive sign”.

Asked at the trailer launch of his upcoming film “Hope Aur Hum” on Monday for his opinion about the rape and murder of an eight-year-old child in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua, he said: “Well, rape is not a new phenomenon, such horrors have always happened; but the positive thing is, these days such cases are reported more.

“In fact, there is a very wonderful thing that read yesterday in a newspaper where a rape survivor was saying that why should the victim has to hide her face? It, in fact, the accused, who committed the crime should be ashamed, they should hide their faces. It’s a threatful situation… I guessait’s a good thing that media is so alert about all these things nowadays.”

“It surely makes our morning horrifying, as the moment you open the newspaper, such news appears. But it is good that such incidents are talked about.”

Naseeruddin admitted that he doesn’t know if this is the solution.

“We are talking about a generational change of mindset, that cannot happen overnight. What we can do, is to trend set the example in our personal lives. We cannot keep on policing or not every girl possibly keeps a pistol or learns martial arts. It has to begin with us, with each one of us,” said the veteran actor.

The trailer launch was attended by the cast and crew of the film including actress Sonali Kulkarni, Naveen Kasturia, along with child actors of the film and director Sudip Bandyopadhyay.

Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan defends casting couch, says ‘provides livelihood’

Published

New Delhi, April 24: Noted choreographer Saroj Khan on Tuesday defended the practice of casting couch in the film industry, said it’s done with consent and at least provides the livelihood.

The 69-year-old artist, who has choreographed over 2000 songs, further stated the ‘tradition’ has been going on since ages and blaming just Bollywood is unfair.

“This is going on from ‘baba Adam’s times’, it is not new. Someone or the other always tries to take an advantage of a girl. The government officilas do it too, then why are we only behind the film industry? It provides livelihood at least,” she added.

Further putting her thoughts forward, she said as to why would anyone want to sell herself if she is confident about her talent.

“Does not rape and leave you. It is up to the girl, what she wants to do. If you don’t want to fall into wrong hands, you won’t. If you are talented, why would you sell yourself? Don’t blame the film industry’s name, it is everything to us,” Khan asserted.

New Delhi, April 24: Welcome Tiana Gia Johnson! Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and his partner have become parents to another ‘strong girl’.

The ‘Jumanji’ star, in an adorable social media post, revealed he has welcomed his second child with girlfriend Lauren Hashian.

The new father also shared a picture of his newborn cradled in his arms.

“Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar,” he said.

“I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there,” he continued.

The actor and semi-retired pro wrestler also stressed to his male fans the importance of supporting their significant other during child birth.

“Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer – watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless.”

Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan.”
