Sunny Leone unwilling to do adult comedies May 02, 2016 12:08

Bollywood actress Sunny Leone says that, she is no more interesting in doing adult comedy films. Basing on gaining the huge popularity as a porn star, Sunny Leone was offered several sex-comedies, after the actress gave off porn films. All the porn audience of Sunny, got adjusted with the limited amount of the erotic scenes and skin shows in her main stream films. But it seems, Sunny is irritated doing the films in the regular genre and so has made the latest statement. "Right now, I don't want to do sex comedy films”, Sunny says, but giving a little hope to her identical audience, she adds, “If the right project comes to me, I will see. I might say yes if someone comes to me tomorrow, it depends on what I am offered.” “I think if people keep making adult comedies, then it won't be shocking. But at the same time if there is consistency of these (adult comedy) films, then people won't take it seriously,” she said. Last outing Mastizaade was released amidst of the huge expectations, but unfortunately it could not reach any such expectations and ended up as a disaster. Even Sunny, during the early days of the movie release, accepted that Mastizaade could not work out and promised to come with a good movie in the future. “We could have done this or that (to make the film better). I am not a producer to point out things,” Sunny said, clarifying that she discusses all her queries with the director. By Phani Ch

Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu in ugly verbal spat May 02, 2016 11:04

29th match in IPL 2016, being conducted with Rising Pune Supergiants and Mumbai Indians, has witnessed an ugly spat between Harbhajan Singh and Ambati Rayudu. The two MI players were spotted in ugly situation in the 11th over of the Pune innings, when Rayudu failed in stopping a boundary hit by Saurabh Tiwary off Harbhajan despite a brilliant dive near the boundary rope. Harbhajan who could not take this, was spotted abusing his team-mate, which was sparked the altercation between both the cricketers. Rayudu, who is in no mood of taking it on lighter mode, gave him back and charged towards Harbhajan, to counter him. But the matured Sikh player tried to pacify Rayudu, unwilling to create the ugly atmosphere. The sportive personalities, however, were later seen celebrating with each other, after Harbhajan dismissed Peter Handscomb in his next over. It is to be recollected, that, in IPL’s first edition, Harbhajan had allegedly slapped pacer S Sreesanth, after MI's defeat to Kings XI Punjab. Even Rayudu has a history of such on-field outburst.

Rs. 5 in letter: Jharkhand’s villagers post to Modi May 02, 2016 09:53

Jharkhand villagers sent Rs. 5 enclosed in a letter to the Prime Minister’s office in Delhi. Latehar district residents sent those letters to the PM, protesting against the low increase of wages from Rs. 162 to Rs. 167 per day, that too in the drought season. Villagers opined that, Rs. 5 increase in wages has actually insulted them. “The government has done us a big favour perhaps by increasing the wages. In some other states, I am told, the increase is not even that,” said 65-year-old Kamlesh Oraon, a marginal farmer. “But we cannot accept such a raise. It is too little. So we are sending the money back to the prime minister... Maybe he'll have some use for it.” Jharkhand Chief Minister from BJP, Raghubar Das, in the recent March, sought Centre, to release the due NREGA funds immediately. Workers said that, they are not paid any wages for more than three months. Economist Jean Dreze, one of the architects of the MNREGA act said, as the drought was severe, NREGA could have been a great relief. “NREGA was meant to be a saviour for the poor. But there are no funds. It is not a good thing at all,” he said. Commenting upon the wage hike, Dreze said, the increase by Rs. 5 after a number of requests was a textbook case of too little too late. “The wages should have been raised to at least Rs. 300 in these times,” he opined. The issue is now on full heat among the villagers, Unless the Prime Minister personally intervenes and solves the issue, it is tough to comeback to the normal. By Phani Ch

AP special status: TDP, BJP declare war on each other May 02, 2016 09:48

Special status issue has been a big reason for raising a new fire in between TDP and BJP leaders. While the ruling TDP is blaming BJP by raking up key issues like non-release of promised central funds and special status, the BJP at a meeting in Kadapa yesterday, declared war against TDP, taking Rayalaseema issues as the weapon. BJP leaders said that, on May 5th, they would visit Srisailam dam backwaters and also plan to take the state government to task for locating all the projects and schemes in the coastal districts, while neglecting Rayalaseema. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is unhappy with the Centre, for not keeping up the promises made in the AP Reorganization Act. Reportedly, Naidu recently commented that the Supreme Court had come to the rescue of AP and did justice on the contentious sharing of assets and liabilities of state institutions listed in the 9th and 10th schedules of the AP Reorganisation Act but not the Centre though he has requested it to intervene for the last few months. Naidu said that, he has visited Delhi 30 times and represented AP’s issues, but Centre is least concerned about it. On May 4th in Delhi, the Niti Aayog will be holding a day-long meeting, to review the implementation of provisions in the AP Reorganization Act. Speculations are now taking good hope, that BJP would soon join hands with YSRCP for 2019 elections, as the alliance with TDP has anyway turned ugly, with Naidu fighting against the Centre for the special status and several other issues. “If the reports that the TD wants to move away from us is true, it is unfortunate. We never tried to weaken the TD. In fact we have pumped a lot of funds to AP and we never betrayed mitra dharma. We are not for moving out of the alliance, we know that the Central funds that have been sanctioned have not been spent for the intended purpose,” AP State BJP president and Visakhapatnam MP K. Haribabu said. But Mr Vishnuvardhan Reddy said, “So far, we have been a bit hesitant in attacking TD, but we will not tolerate the manner in which the ruling party has been going at us. We know how to expose the state government. As part of it at the meeting at Kadapa today, we decided to take up agitations against the state government for the injustice it is doing to Rayalaseema.” By Phani Ch

Kabali, Brahmotsavam teasers get divided talk! May 02, 2016 08:53

Super Star Rajinikanth’s Kabali movie teaser and Mahesh Babu’s Brahmotsavam teaser have been released on Sunday, trending in the social networking sites all the day. But it seems, both the teasers have got mixed response. While few say, the teasers are just ok, others say, they are extraordinary. If Kabali teaser is considered, right from the beginning of the project, the makers have hinted that, Rajinikanth would be playing a don role. Since then, most of the fans started relating the role to that of Baasha movie, which was a trend setting one, in those days. But unlike the serious dark shaded Baasha, Super Star in Kabali was seen in bit active and entertaining role. However, Rajini’s style, background score all together gives a thumbs up, if it is not compared with Baasha. Coming to Brahmotsavam, Madhuram Madhuram song teaser released yesterday is being applauded for the soothing music. But the shots of Mahesh, as shown in Brahmotsavam first teaser were repeated in latest teaser too, hinting a negative sign to the movie. However, teasers cannot alone decide the fate of the movie, it should be seen, how far the two big movies would conquer this Summer. By Phani Ch

Petrol and diesel rates hiked May 02, 2016 08:06

Petrol and diesel prices in the country, got hiked by Rs 1.06 and Rs 2.94 respectively. State-owned fuel retailers IOC, BPCL and HPCL revise rates on every fortnight (1st and 16th of every month), based on the average oil price and the foreign exchange rate in the preceding fortnight. “The movement of prices in the international oil market and the rupee-USD exchange rate shall continue to be monitored closely and developing trends of the market will be reflected in future price changes,” IOC has once said. As the main engine of global demand growth for the past several years starts to sputter amid signs of a gasoline glut, the rebound in the oil prices internationally from 12-year lows is in danger of coming to a crashing halt. Crude oil, from January, has rallied more 2/3rds, nadir on robust demand from refineries across the world, stoking cautious optimism among producers and exporters that the epic rout that slashed global prices by 75 % between mid-2014 and early 2016 is finally over. But, especially in Asia, the rampant production of the oil products, is threatening to derail that recovery. Several major gasoline importing countries have started exporting, keeping in mind the chances of overflowing of the excessive supply of fuels in the storage facilities and erode refinery profits. However, the Indian consumers are yet to get proper benefits from the sharp price reduction to a decade low, as the government on 5 occasions since November, has raised excise duty on the petrol and diesel. The total 5 hikes add add up to Rs 4.02 per litre on petrol and Rs 6.97 on diesel, thus the government makes an additional revenue of Rs. 17000 crore. According to global price movement, diesel prices were deregulated in 2014, giving freedom to the oil marketing companies to hike or reduce the prices. By Phani Ch

The actor turned politician said, “United Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated by Congress 2 years back and did a big crime. Andhrites would never forget that insult. Modi government has gained so much of confidence and at this stage, I hope the Centre do not make such range of blunder mistake committed by Congress earlier.”Pawan Kalyan earlier, as known, has supported BJP-TDP and has become one major reason for the formation of the state and Central governments.

Panel pushes women to register for draft April 30, 2016 15:23

The House Armed Services Committee has decided to make the women register for the draft as a handful of Republicans joined Democrats recently, to back a measure whose own sponsor hoped would fail.“Right now the draft is sexist,” said Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Calif.), who filed an amendment to the House’s annual defense authorization bill to require women falling in the age group of 18-26, to register for the Selective Service, the government agency that keeps records of who is eligible to be conscripted.As per the recent administration policy proposed by Obama, women will be allowed to serve in all combat roles. Hunter, who is against this proposal opined that, the measure was proposed only to begin the discussion about the draft. He voted against his amendment, arguing that anyone who favored it would be siding with the administration.But Hunter’s gamble that committee members would shy away from forcing women into the draft backfired when a slim majority, including 5 Republicans, opted to endorse the measure by 32-30 vote. “We have a standards-based force now, and we don’t have a standards-based Selective Service,” Rep. Christopher P. Gibson (R-N.Y.) argued, joining Democrats, all but one of whom also supported the measure.“We should be willing to support universal conscription,” said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.). “There’s great merit in recognizing that each of us have an obligation to be willing to serve our country in a time of war.”However, the proposal to include women in the draft, is yet to survive a full House vote and then make it through the Senate. As women did not have to register for the draft, women could not hold combat jobs, Supreme Court told in 1981. However, the change in policy has got a boost, after Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he is open to the idea. “As far as I’m concerned, if we’re going to put women into combat roles then that’s certainly logical, but I’d like to consult with the committee - all the members of the committee,” he said.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) sounded a more skeptical note, declining to support having women register for the draft.“We need to take a comprehensive look at the entire Selective Service process, and we shouldn’t just deal with one issue at a time,” Ryan said. The underlying defense authorization bill commissions a study of the draft to help answer questions about “what it would mean to keep it, to do away with it, to include females in it. My view is, we need to get those answers,” said the committee’s chairman, Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Tex.), who voted against the amendment.The House in mid-May, is expected to vote on the annual defense authorization bill, which also includes the draft registration for women. If the amendment comes into the process, the change could also preempt ongoing court cases about whether excluding women from the draft is discriminatory. Along with the intention of changing the draft policy for women, it was revealed that, the several lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, have great reservations about the continued necessity of the draft.“I would much rather have someone who I know wants to be there, someone who is trained, who is highly capable and who is a professional warrior, to have my back,” said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a veteran. She voted for the amendment to include women in the draft but said she thought the discussion was “misguided.”“The bar would have to be dramatically lowered if we were to return to conscription again,” said Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), who voted against the amendment, remarking that most eligible youths would not meet the standards for service anyway because of any number of problems, including drug addiction, emotional problems or simply being overweight.“We have the most elite military that we have today in the history of this country, and I want to keep it that way,” he added.By Phani Ch
