Women Power!Bollywood News and Gossips

We Indians have always bowed down before woman power – our Goddesses are proof enough, if proof is needed. Goddess Durga personifies strength and determination. When all the Gods put together failed to find out ways and means to conquer the evil forces, they prayed to her, they prostrated themselves before her and requested her to deliver them from the evil forces. That was probably the starting point …. Centuries have passed by since then. Today we swear by science and technology. A look at the software scenario tells its own story; the boys go after the hardware leaving those delicate fingers to solve the puzzles of softwares that make the world tick! The choices are obvious. There are exceptions but, then, exception are supposed to prove the rules. In the arena of fine arts, women rule – 76 years of age has not mellowed the golden voice of Lata Mangeshkar. Women past their prime can still be found to be making waves – Aparna Sen and Shabana Azmi are best examples. Yesterday, we saw them on the sets of Aparna’s latest movie 15 Park Avenue. The first frame and whatever little information one could gather about the story show promises. Political heavyweights have their share of persons of the fair sex – when the situation demands, they can be even more tough and non wielding compared to their male counterparts. We had the likes of Indira Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, Srimavo Bandernaike, Benazir Bhutto and Sheikh Hasina. At present we have a large group of women leaders. Each of them has left her mark of authority in all her dealings.

Shahid Kapoor And Priyanka Chopra Make Their Romance Official

Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have now decided to make their romance official. Last Saturday, the couple was spotted leaving Karim Morani’s 50th birthday party (held at his Juhu bungalow) together in Priyanka’s white Mercedes with Shahid’s car following behind.

Says a guest at the party, “Priyanka walked in with a friend a bit after midnight while Shahid came in after 1 am. But during the entire time Priyanka was there, Shahid kept calling and talking to her throughout till he reached. After which, they both circulated a bit and quickly withdrew to a secluded corner where they remained, talking in hushed tones, almost till the time they had to leave around 5 am. When it was time for them to leave, Priyanka, Shahid and Priyanka’s friend left together in Priyanka’s white Mercedes (MH-02 BG 6345) while Shahid’s driver followed behind with his silver Mercedes (MH-02 AQ 4244). While Priyanka is quite happy to show the world that she’s in love with Shahid, apparently, he’s not in a hurry to do it. He was hiding his face when the reporters photos were trying to take pictures.”

The source adds that the Priyanka-Shahid love story appears to be blossoming. “Apart from their quiet get away together at Karim’s party, neighbours at Shahid and Priyanka’s apartment complex, Raj Classic, talk about their both taking walks together holding hands, mostly after midnight because that’s the time when the grounds get empty and they have some privacy.”

The source says, “While Priyanka appears to be smitten by Shahid, one wonders if there were hot sparks between the couple when they were dating other people. In fact, when Shahid and Kareena were going around once Priyanka and Harman had joined them for a holiday in Bali. Shahid would often tell mutual friends of theirs that he found Priyanka hot. But as both were dating others nothing came out of it.”

A cultural programme preceded the glittering award function held at sports city at Balewadi, about 20 km from here.

Amitabh Turns Down Australian Doctorate

Amitabh Bachchan

Saddened by the continuing racist attacks against Indians in Australia, Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has refused to accept an honorary doctorate from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

The University’s highest honorary award was to be conferred on Big B at a major public event on July 30, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, to recognise his outstanding contribution to creative industries over several decades.
Expressing his distress on the issue, Amitabh, in his latest blog post, said, "I have been witnessing with great dismay and shock, the recent violent attacks on Indian students in Australia, on the electronic media the entire day."
"I mean no disrespect to the Institution that honours me, but under the present circumstances, where citizens of my own country are subjected to such acts of inhuman horror, my conscience does not permit me to accept this decoration from a country that perpetrates such indignity to my fellow countrymen," he added.
Amitabh is only the second person from India, after IT leader Narayan Murthy, to be chosen for such an honour from QUT.
Australia has recently seen a series of attacks on Indian students, the most serious being the assault of Shravan Kumar, a 25-year-old student from Andhra Pradesh who is battling for life in a hospital here after being stabbed by a screwdriver by a group of teens in a weekend attack that also left three of his friends injured.
