Another Chapter in the Disgraceful Behavior of Salman Khan

Another Chapter in the Disgraceful Behavior of Salman Khan

We were not surprised to hear about Salman Khan’s latest comments about his film schedule being so “grueling” that he “felt like a raped woman”.  His horrific and insensitive comments have erupted in global condemnation with a trending hashtag of #InsensitiveSalman on Twitter.   It’s unfortunate that an internationally known celebrity and India’s Goodwill Ambassador to the Rio Olympics would make these comments, with the increase in sexual violence in India.

We Will Not Be Silenced by Homophobia and Gun Violence

We Will Not Be Silenced by Homophobia and Gun Violence

There are simply no words to express our sadness and outrage over the horrific shooting in Orlando, Florida. We  send our deepest condolences to friends and families of the victims. An official Go Fund Me account has been set up here to help provide support to victims and family members. It’s hard to think that almost a year ago, we were celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision affirming the constitutional right of same-sex couples to marry.  We will not be

Ranveer Singh on Bollywood’s Casting Couch

Ranveer Singh on Bollywood’s Casting Couch

“Just let me touch it.” Ranveer Singh describes his early experience being the target of a small-time casting director in Andheri who was more interested in Ranveer’s body than the modeling portfolio the young actor had put together for his interview. In a candid interview on NDTV, the actor says that its an open secret in the Bollywood film industry that exploitation and trading sexual favors for acting roles is

India’s First Transgender Band Gets “Happy”

India’s First Transgender Band Gets “Happy”

Y-Films—a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films—has set the Internet on fire with the launch of their new video “Hum Hai Happy.” Is “India’s first transgender band” a groundbreaking musical group or a corporate formula for a viral hit? Our cynical side smells corporate spirit given the splashy corporate underwriting by the folks at Red Label Tea and the earnest sell copy —“Brooke Bond Red Label has always
