Pannu to hold self-defence classes

Actress Taapsee Pannu, who is collaborating with FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) for a self-defence training workshop, said, “I have always tried to push the importance of self defence in girls. It is more than just learning about martial arts, it's about instilling this confidence among girls that they are capable of taking care of themselves. They need to be their own heroes.” The actress has played strong characters in Naam Shabana and Pink, herself practises martial arts as part of her fitness routine. She will even be presenting demonstrations at the session.

There never has been competition. It is not a sport. I came as an actor... as your films start getting successful, you become a star. But I still prefer to be an actor. I never look back at the journey because it is still on. I like to take every day as a new day and move ahead.

Swedish actor Bill Skarsgard says he had nightmares for weeks after he finished filming It. “It was weird. I really enjoyed myself doing it, but the day after we wrapped, I went back home to Stockholm, Sweden, and it's always a weird experience when you work really hard on something and then you go back to regular life at your childhood home.” The actor added, “And that's when I finally realised what an impact the character had had on me. For the following two weeks, I would have these really disturbing dreams about Pennywise. It was very strange.”

Beyonce visits Harvey survivors

Singer Beyonce visited a church to speak to the gathered survivors of last week’s catastrophic Hurricane Harvey. “This today is a celebration of survival. This church is my home. I was maybe nine or 10-years-old the first time I sat there where my daughter is sitting. I sang my first solo here and I just want to thank you for lifting my family up, for praying for me, and for being such an incredible example of what light and love is,” she said. The singer was joined by her mother Tina Knowles and daughter Blue Ivy, as well as fellow bandmate Michelle Williams.
