Bendre tells her son about rape

Actress SONALI BENDRE shared an example of explaining rape to her son. She revealed, “The conversation started because I mistakenly said the ‘F’ word out loud. He asked me why was it such a big deal to use that word? We were in a dilemma. Goldie said that there is never later. If the question has come up, that means its the right time.” Her husband explained, “It is very important that he realises the word’s meaning. He needs to understand, that sex isn’t a bad word. When two people are in love with each other, it is the most beautiful thing. But rape is the most atrocious thing to do to a human being, since you are violating a person’s innermost being, forcefully. The same act, which can give you immense pleasure and love, can be the most horrendous.”

‘Even my sons take me for granted at times and I feel embarrassed when I keep calling them, but I cannot help it. In fact, every mother in this world is protective about her child. When I was small, I used to do the same thing, but now that I am a mother I realise how this feels.’

—Madhuri Dixit-Nene

Actor AKSHAY KUMAR shares a close bond with John Abraham but he doesn’t seem to be happy with his film Gold and John’s forthcoming movie Satyameva Jayate releasing on the same date. Akshay sarcastically expressed his displeasure over the issue by taking a jibe at John’s statement. “It is true that he is my friend and I have learned that anyone can release their film with other actor’s film so, next time, I will also do the same.”

Arnie-Maria still married

Actor and author ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER and his wife Maria Shriver are awaiting their divorce to be official seven years after filing it. Journalist and author Maria Shriver filed the divorce on July 1, 2011, after she learned that Schwarzenegger fathered a child with their housekeeper. There was never any custody complaint of their four children, two of whom were minors at the time. Christopher is now 20, so there hasn't been a theoretical custody issue for years. As for a property settlement, there was a pot of around $400 million to split. The couple reportedly started dating in 1982 and married in 1986. As per reports, Schwarzenegger has not shown interest in making the divorce final.
