Rishi’s merit lesson for RaGa

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's idea of citing Bollywood as an example while discussing dynasty politics in India during his Berkeley speech has irked veteran actor Rishi Kapoor. He tweeted, “Rahul Gandhi in the 106 years of Indian cinema, Kapoor's contribution is 90 years. And each generation is chosen by public on merit.” The actor further added, “So don't bullshit people on dynasty. You have to earn people's respect and love through hard work, not zabardasti and gundagardi.” In his speech, Rahul Gandhi mentioned Abhishek Bachchan while making a statement on how most of India runs on dynasty politics.

JLaw delves into ‘dark emotions’

Actress Jennifer Lawrence says shooting the horror movie Mother took her on an emotionally-charged journey. “Emotionally I had to go to darker places than I would ever want to go in my life and I would never want to go there again. And finding a more sort of vulnerable, softer part of myself that I think I had been like covering up or shoving away for a long time,” Lawrence said. She plays Veronica in the film, directed by her beau Darren Aronofsky.“I popped my chest rib and I tore my diaphragm. It actually took a long time to heal but emotionally I was better as soon as we finished that scene,” the actor added.
