Controversy queen Mallika Sherawat has been invited to the prestigious Oxford University in the UK for a debate on Gender oppression.

The Bollywood diva, who openly expressed her opinion on the treatment of women in India, was accused of depicting India in a negative way. Mallika’s heated argument with a journalist went viral last year and left the actress open to the scrutiny of many. This obviously isn’t going to stop her from speaking her mind and we’re not the only ones who feel she would be a good pick for the debate. A team member, who is part of managing the event, had this to say: “We feel that as a figure who recently was very outspoken about the image of women and women’s rights in a country like India, she would lend an interesting angle to the debate.”

Mallika has confirmed that she’s accepted the invitation and commented,“Yes, I have accepted the invitation. The date is set on Feb 27th. A lot of preparation is required.” Elated over such an opportunity, she further stated, “Its a great honor. I come from a small town so it means a lot to be invited to speak at such a historic venue. I can use the platform to highlight issues like drop in the conviction rate in rape cases across the country.”

Check out this video where Mallika gets into a heated argument with a journalist on the sensitive topic.

Hollywood’s favorite Indian import Irrfan Khan is heading back to the small screen with a new show called ‘Emergency Room‘ on National Geographic Channel.  National Geographic Channel, in association with Medanta Hospital in Delhi, is launching the show in support of Nat Geo’s ‘Be Emergency Ready!‘ initiative in India.

When asked about the show Irrfan said “There is a certain negligence and dehumanization that plagues the society today. I am glad that a credible entity like National Geographic Channel has come forth to take forward this cause. I am happy and proud to be a part of this campaign and will do my bit in educating audiences. It will also be insightful for the viewers to watch the show ‘Emergency Room’ and recognize real life tensions and how it affects those who are dealing with it.”

The show will give viewers a look into the hectic efforts of the emergency room medical staff at Medanta Hospital in attempting to save patients’ lives when they are admitted with Irrfan ostensibly providing a voiceover narrative to their efforts.  Fans need not worry, as Irrfan will be seen in a slew of upcoming movies including 2014’s ‘Gunday‘ with Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh that he is currently shooting.

Jackie Chan said he would like to see more co-operation between the Indo-Chinese film communities and is looking for a role to feature him in a Bollywood film.  The martial arts expert and action star is currently in Delhi for the China Film festival. He even mentioned that he was “looking for a good script” and that he was looking for collaborations for a role “for my acting and not my action. I am a pretty good actor.”

What’s Mr. Chan’s favorite Bollywood movie?  Why, ‘3 Idiots‘ of course!  The 59-year old star added that he would love to use Indian choreography, but sorry fans, he says he can’t dance.

Chan is currently in India touring and promoting his musical film ‘My Life in Action‘ and is in talks to perhaps star in Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables 3‘.  Let’s hope Mr. Chan gets a chance to bring China to Bollywood!
