    June 30, 2016, NewsCrunch

    The former Miss India runner-up Sobhita Dhulipala is on a high.

    Her dream Bollywood debut in the Anurag Kashyap film Raman Raghav 2.0 opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui earned a nomination in Cannes.

    She told Deccan Chronicle that though she always wanted to be an actress, she finds it hard to believe where she is now. All it took was a 45 minute audition for her to bag the role of Simi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s girl friend in Raman Raghav.

    A Telugu girl from Vizag, she says the Kollywood is yet to take note of her and she also wants to give her first shot to Bollywood.

    Though Sobhita Dhulipala has modelled for Kingfisher calendar, fans recall most her modelling pictures in sarees. Here are a few of them.

    Twitter users alleged on Thursday that Bollywood actress Celina Jaitley was seeking to get some publicity in the horrifying terror attack at the Istanbul airport on Tuesday.

    The ferocious Twitter response followed three tweets from Celina Jaitley, in which she mentioned that she had passed through the Istanbulairport a month ago, enroute to Miami, where she was honoured for her work.

    Celina Jaitley has won acclaim for her work for the LGBT community, though using Istanbulattacks to remind her followers was a little disconcerting for many.

    In the third tweet, Celina Jaitley posted a ‘lovely’ sunset photo she had
    captured while landing at the Istanbul airport.

    In another tweet she expressed horror at the attack.

    In the third tweet she posted a ‘lovely’ sunset photo she had captured while landing at the Istanbulairport. A photo was attached and the tweet, which also had a prayer for victims,  was hashtagged #IstanbulAttacks.

    After she got badly mauled, Celina Jaitley was seen rebutting the allegations with a couple of tweets and asking the trolls to behave themselves.

    We find that her veins have collapsed from abuse and she finds it hard to find one to shoot up the heroin. (video below)
    June 30, 2016, NewsCrunch

    If you want to grasp the epidemic of drug addiction in Punjab, this video may help.

    A young woman is shown on a terrace cooking heroin - that is, she is trying to dissolve powdered heroin in water while heating it in a container to speed up the process.

    She is perhaps aware that she is being filmed. There are a few other men, including the person who is recording the act and asking questions.

    She tells him she has been married for two years and has even miscarried because of her addiction.

    After preparing the mix, she injects it in one syringe to one of the men, who pumps up his arm to expose the vein.

    Then she sets out to inject herself, but struggles to find a vein. There are black marks on her arms - spots where she usually injects. We find that her veins have collapsed from abuse and she finds it hard to find one to shoot up the heroin.

    She inserts the needle into her forearms, then tries the knuckle, but fails to find a vein. She then sits down and starts dabbing her leg with the needle.

    She tries the ankle in vain and then goes for the knee, where she finally manages to inject the drug.

    The real shocker follows. We learn that the site of the drug mixing and injection is the terrace of her own home. Her mother comes up, has a casual conversation and goes back.

    It is scary when heroin finds social acceptance  and becomes routine, like say having a paan.
    The girl is asked, why is she not able to kick the habit. She rambles...

    The video has been shared by Baltej Pannu, a journalist from Patiala.

    After dishing out young Madhuri Dixit from its archives, Doordarshan has thrown light on early Shahrukh Khan.  A video showing Shahrukh Khan, close to his mid-20s, anchoring a music show and long way from his rise to super-stardom has gone viral.  Shahrukh Khan was active in television for three years between 1988 and 1990; the video was probably shot in late 1989 or 1990.

    After dishing out young Madhuri Dixit from its archives, Doordarshan has thrown light on early Shahrukh Khan.

    A video showing Shahrukh Khan, close to his mid-20s, anchoring a music show and long way from his rise to super-stardom has gone viral.

    Shahrukh Khan was active in television for three years between 1988 and 1990; the video was probably shot in late 1989 or 1990.

    In the show he introduces budding singer Kumar Sanu, saying he sounds similar to Kishor Kumar. Shahrukh Khan's reading was correct and Kumar Sanu, would have agreed with it.  The singer had shifted to Mumbai in 1989 and changed his name from Kedarnath Bhattacharya to Kumar Sanu to encourage such comparisons.

    In the video, Shahrukh Khan stands out with his screen presence but acts a bit a bit wooden and is self conscious. He would overcome these limitations in later years with dollops of overacting.

    Though Shahrukh Khan started shooting for a television series called Dil Dariya in 1988 it got delayed. It was the 1989 series Fauji, in which he played Army cadet Abhimanyu Rai, got him good recognition.

    He went on to act in Aziz Mirza's television series Circus, and Mani Kaul's miniseries Idiot, besides bagging minor parts in Umeed and Wagle Ki Duniya.

    His TV career took off earning him enough fame to draw comparisons with legend Dilip Kumar and making it easier to transition to films, which happened starting in 1991.

    Kumar Sanu also got a major break in 1990 with the movie Aashiqui turning him into a popular playback singer.

    Subramanian Swamy tweeted on Friday morning threatening to burst government claims that economy was witnessing on uptick under Modi.  The government especially the Finance Ministry has been claiming that India's GDP has touched 7.4% under Modi, though many experts have accused it of tampering with the methodology to boost up the numbers.
    Subramanian Swamy and his Harvard University teacher Paul A Samueslon published a
    paper on the Theory of Index Numbers in 1974.

    July 1, 2016, NewsCrunch

    Subramanian Swamy tweeted on Friday morning threatening to burst government claims that economy was witnessing an uptick under Modi.

    The government especially the Finance Ministry has been claiming that India's GDP has touched 7.4% under Modi, though many experts have accused it of tampering with the methodology to boost up the numbers.

    In the Friday tweet, Subramanian Swamy hinted that the truth would come out if 'Samuelson-Swamy Theory of Index Numbers' was applied to India's GDP calculation or RBI interests rates.

    The revelation would be damaging and media would scream that he was indulging in  anti party activity, the tweet noted.

    Subramanian Swamy and his Harvard University teacher Paul A Samueslon, the highly acclaimed economist, published  a paper on the Theory of Index Numbers in American Economic Review in 1974.

    The often cited paper lays down a methodology to use index numbers to compare disparate entities such as trucks and fertilisers to evaluate different sectors of the economy.

    Though the tweet seems to target Arun Jaitley and Raghuram Rajan, given that Modi has thrown his weight behind them, Subramanian Swamy may be angling for a bigger kill.

    Instead of the sidekick, the peddler gets the glimpse of Muffler Man in the advertisement (video below)

    July 1, 2016, NewsCrunch

    An AAP-inspired ad puts ‘Kejriwal Sir’ in the forefront of the fight against drug epidemic in Punjab.

    A drug peddler is in his car, with a sidekick, to supply drugs to a rave party. The sidekick gets into trance and asks him to stop selling drugs.

    “It is time for them to go to rehab, not rave party,” he says.

    “The sky is clearing up, drugs sadness, corruption and slavery will end. All clouds will clear,” he continues.

    Why?

    “Because ‘Kejriwal Sir’ is coming.”

    The peddler dismisses the rant and says he has seen it all and looks back in the rear view mirror and gets spooked.

    What does he see? Instead of the sidekick, he gets the glimpse of Muffler Man.

    The video ends with profuse thanks to Kumar Vishwas Sir and ‘Kejriwal Sir’

    AAP chapter of Chicago seems to be behind the video.

    Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, known  for his good sense of humour, has done a cute impersonation of Virat Kohli’s famous flying kiss to Anushka Sharma. 

    Playing a friendly cricket match at Jaipur palace grounds, with his kabbadi team Jaipur Pink Panthers Abhishek Bachchan hit a ball for four.

    Then the slightly overweight impersonation ran for some distance and waved his bat Virat Kohli-style and blew a flying kiss to the audience.

    When Virat Kohli sent his kiss flying, there was Anushka Sharma in the stadium to receive it.

    For his luck, Abhishek Bachchan had to blow his flying kiss it to a group of  tough and unshaven kabbadi players.

    Abhishek Bachchan owns the Pro Kabaddi League’s Jaipur Pink Panthers, which  is based in Jaipur,Rajasthan. The Jaipur Pink Panthers won the inaugural edition of the league in 2014.

    Virat Kohli had blown his famous flying kiss to Anushka Sharma at Melbourne in 2014 after hitting his ninth Test ton.

    The video was published by Sportskeeda quoting a caption from Abhishek Bachchan, which said, My best Virat Kohli impersonation.

    A few accounts associated with radical Hindutva started posting comments on Swati spouting abuses on the imaginary Muslim killer.

    July 2, 2016, NewsCrunch

    When Gandhiji was assassinated, the news broadcasts emphasised that he had been shot by a Hindu to prevent the tragedy from taking a communal colour.

    Now that an engineer Ram Kumar from Tirunelveli has been arrested for Swati’s murder, it needs to be emphasised that he is a Hindu, if only to show the spiteful rumour-mongers their place.

    Over the last few days, many have been blogging and tweeting irresponsibly, without an iota of evidence that Swati’s murder was a love jihad conspiracy. The theory was that she was hacked by a Muslim after she spurned his advances.

    So, how did these fanatics hijack the terrible murder?

    Swati was hacked on June 24. The next day a few extreme Hindutva websites  carried reports suggesting that it had been committed by an ISIS sympathiser.

    An article by an extreme Hindutva website, which has been deleted now, tried to marshal evidence to make its case:

    One, in Bangladesh, jihadis were hacking the bloggers…so there was a similarity in modus operandi.

    Two, the murderer was seen in CCTV footage wearing a  backpack. Remember, how Kasab went on a rampage wearing a similar backpack.

    The article produces further evidence. It quotes a ‘frightened resident near Nungambakkam railway station’ speculating that ‘the killer must have been influenced by IS video of slitting the throats of the non-Muslims.’

    The resident, also adds that the identity of the murderer is yet to be ascertained.

    This article was published by several other extreme Hindutva websites and that was cue for their wards on Twitter to take over.

    A few accounts associated with radical Hindutva started posting comments on Swati spouting abuses on the imaginary Muslim killer.

    The alleged Muslim killer even acquired a name, Bilal Malick, and that fuelled the hate tweets even more. Many of these tweets were tagged to #LoveJihad and some to #JusticeforSwati.

    A campaign also started calling upon Hindu parents to trend for Swati. Bollywood singer Abhijeet was among those stalwarts who came out to mobilise Hindu parents to seek justice for Swati.

    Trailer launches in Bollywood are yawn-yawn affairs. Tired stars and bored journalists, and that pretty much sums up the action.

    But the forthcoming adult comedy Great Grand Masti’s trailer has gone viral thanks to Urvashi Rautela, who was looking stunning in a dress that was, well, quite revealing.

    As the cameras zoomed in on you now what, a few loud gasps could be heard.

    The 19-year-old girl from Firozabad in Uttar Pradesh had deep connections with Bangladesh. Her father has been running a successful garment business there and she had also studied at the AmericanSchoolin Dhaka.

    The Dhaka eatery where the terrorists struck was a popular haunt for the Dhaka elite. Tarishi Jain had probably stepped in for a bite like she may have had done so many times earlier, when the terrorists seized it.

    Tarishi Jain’s cousin sister Saloni took to twitter on Saturday morning posting frantic tweets asking for prayers and help. She informed that Tarishi Jain had been taken hostage and wanted the India government to step in.

    But she fell silent as the news trickled in that Tarishi Jain was among the 20 foreign nationals, who had been murdered.

    Tarishi Jain’s father is reportedly in Dhaka. Minister Sushma Swaraj has promised to facilitate visas on priority to help the rest of the family reach Dhaka

    The Friday night terror attack in Dhaka cut short a life that had a long and interesting life ahead.

    Daughter of a successful entrepreneur in garments business in Bangladesh, Tarishi Jain knew the dirty underbelly of the industry.

    That made her step out in support of Ethical Apparel, a social venue that was started by two University of California Berkely students. It sells t-shirts and invests the profits to help poor individuals start business.

    In April, Tarishi Jain had noted on her Facebook page that she was excited to launch Ethical Apparel's new clothing line and sought to mobilise support.

    International Students Association of Berkeley (ISAB), was another organisation she was actively associated with at University of California Berkely, where she was pursuing a BA course in Economics.

    ISAB helps foreign students integrate with the university system.

    ISAB president Aradhana Sachdeva told The Telegraph that Tarishi Jain had to cut back on her work when she underwent surgery for three ligament tears.

    That prevented her from physically attending  a few meetings of ISAB. But she still worked the phones and the Internet to tap funders, draw students and coordinate events.

    Despite her engagements outside the classroom, Tarishi Jain also excelled in academics. She had  won an internship with Eastern Bank Limited that had taken her to Dhaka, where she had spent a decade and had passed out of American International School.

    Journalist Sagarika Ghose has responded to Times Now editor Arnab Goswami's recent blog, in which he had attacked her as a has-been anchor.

    Though Arnab Goswami did not name her, the reference was clear and  a troll-driven hashtag #ArnabSlapsSagarika trended for sometime on Saturday.

    Sagarika Ghose tweeted on Sunday morning describing the present times as India's version of McCarthyism drawing a comparison to the infamous episode of the US history in which liberal-leaning individuals were hounded as communists.

    She said people like her who were not acting like cheer leaders were being hounded. Most had sold their souls, she added, perhaps in an oblique reference to Arnab Goswami.

    Taking on the trolls, who had gone after her on Saturday, Sagarika Ghose tweeted a link to her article on the chamchas of Modi regime and advised them to read it, again making a subtle reference to Arnab Goswami as a cheer leader.

    Sagarika Ghose and her husband Rajdeep Sardesai have been critical of the ascendance of Hindutva politics under Modi and are frequently targeted by those swearing by it.

    Arnab Goswami had written a blog in the Business World recently taking on his critics, who had stated that he had gone soft on Modi during his interview with the PM.

    Singer Abhijeet  has reportedly come under the scanner of Mumbai police for posting a hateful tweet against senior journalist Swati Chaturvedi on Saturday.

    The hate tweet has been described as a sexual assault by many woman activists, who have come out in support of her.

    Singer Abhijeet  tweeted on Saturday that while he would kick Pakistan, its Indian supporters would suck up to the country. He used a truncated sexual expletive that rhymed with his chosen word, Kick.

    This controversial tweet was in response to a post critical of him and made by Swati Chaturvedi.

    The singer was angry at the criticism he had received for a tweet on Swati, the Chennai software engineer who had been last week.

    Before the Chennai police caught a Hindu man Ram Kumar, many on Twitter had alleged that a Muslim man had killed her. Though there was no evidence of any kind, Abhijeet was among those who had upon Hindu parents to protect their children from love jihadis.

    Swati Chaturvedi had taken part in the discussion that had sought action on the rumour mongers including Abhijeet, who is known for his anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan stance.

    Swati Chaturvedi tweeted that Abhijeet was jealous of Pakistani singers who had taken down his mediocre career. That seems to have provoked Abhijeet's tweet.

    Swati Chaturvedi was supported by many women journalists and activists, who urged her to approach Mumbai police and tag Chief Minister Fadnavis, who is known to keep a close eye on social media.

    Following the controversy, the Mumbai police advised her on Friday to lodge a complaint and also approach cyber station.

    In the meanwhile, Abhijeet also re-tweeted a post that said Indian intelligence agencies should eliminate Swati Chaturvedi, journalist Rana Ayyub and JNU student leader Shehla Rashid

    On Sunday afternoon, Swati Chaturvedi informed that Mumbai police had spoken to her assuring tough action against Abhijeet.

    Abhijeet has been known to post intemperate messages on social media.  He claims his support for 'nationalist' positions has cost him offers in Bollywood but is unrepentant and says his tweets are in national service.
