A Decade in Bolly Visuals: #10- “Raat ka Nasha” from Asoka (2001)

A Decade in Bolly Visuals: #10- “Raat ka Nasha” from Asoka (2001)

So, we begin our series of end of year/decade lists, and we’ll start off with highlighting some of the visuals that have delighted us since 2000. And at #10, it’s “Raat ka Nasha” from Santosh Sivan’s, Asoka, a very fictionalized account of the Indian emperor.

Most Anticipated Comeback of the Decade

Most Anticipated Comeback of the Decade

2010 can’t come soon enough, especially now that it’s been announced that the new SADE Album is set for release in early February.

Rally for Marriage Equality Tonight

Rally for Marriage Equality Tonight

Having just stepped off a plane after a 15-hour journey from Buenos Aires, I was more than dismayed to read about the NY State Assembly’s rejection of the gay marriage bill. And, yet again, it’s a major religious institution arguing against tolerance – this time, New York state’s Roman Catholic Church. In protest of this decision, a series of rallies have been planned, including one for tonight, Thursday Dec 3rd

Kiss a Girl – Even for Charity?

In light of the recent news where Charlize Theron raised $140,000 for a charity event by making out with another woman, OneIndia decided to poll some of the top Bollywood actresses to collect their thoughts on the kiss, and whether they would do the deed, even for charity. And, while we aren’t too surprised by some of the answers, After Ellen calls it a “disappointing interview” where the top stars
