Bollywood mourns the death of Delhi rape victim

The young girl brutally gang-raped in New Delhi which shocked the nation, has died in a Singapore hospital early Saturday.

Bollywood

The stars had a lot to say about this tragic incident.

Sridevi (in an interview) – We should ensure that such incidents don’t not happen again and the accused should be punished.

(via Tweet) My heart goes out to the girl & her family in Delhi. Hope justice is served to the guilty of this heinous crime with a severe punishment.

Esha Gupta (in an interview) – Rape is the worst of all crimes that a man can commit. Even murder… the person is dead. But rape – you ruin another person’s life. Leave her living, but she dies inside. In my opinion, this is worse than murder. Capital punishment is too easy – rapists and molesters should be stoned in public, they must be given a slow, painful death.

Priyanka Chopra (via Facebook) – It’s so scary that an independent woman in her own country cannot take a bus without the fear of being attacked.. This is not just a crime against women.. It’s a crime against society.. With so much being said about how women need to dress appropriately or behave appropriately.. I find this whole dialogue absurd.. A woman is not raped because She’s out at night or wearing a short dress or drinking.. She’s raped cause SOMEONE bloody RAPED HER!! And there is no excuse or explanation for that!! Small men who feel powerful by taking on a young girl minding her own business?! Living her beautiful life?! Why Kind of a democracy r we living in? Where a girl can’t be all she is wants to be just out of fear if Man!! Is this India Shining?? Is this even India? Whr is the fear if the law? Of the Govt? It’s shameful!

Juhi Chawla (via Twitter) – Read the newspapers this morning & I wish I hadn’t. Read the heart rending, shocking & saddening news about the gang-rape on a Delhi bus! My heart goes out to the little girl & her family. I hope those men are found & publicly punished for this heinous act. Sometimes I wish our laws were as simple & strict as tooth for tooth & an eye for an eye. Crimes like this wouldn’t happen!

Shabana Azmi (via Twitter) – Certainty of punishment acts as deterrent Death penalty not d answer. Conviction rate in rape cases is non existent.Guarantee safety of women.

Ayesh Takia Azmi (in an interview) – Traumatic, watching news of traumatic news of brutal gang rape in delhi!!! This is truly becoming an epidemic in this country, SHAMEFUL!

Lisa Ray (in an interview) – Public outrage and debate is healthy. Wise punishment is called for. Wisdom comes from introspection and turning the gaze in.

Gul Panag (via Twitter) – Heartening to see women take to the streets. Needed, lest we forget. Of course our elected representatives remain cocooned:p.

Sophie Choudry (via Twitter) – SHAME! Takes incidents like Delhi gang-rape 4 ppl/MPs to show outrage! What about girls who r raped by family members?!Who’s protectin them?

Kareena Kapoor (in an interview) – It really should not have happened. In our country, we always take safety measures after any shocking incident happens. I definitely would like to say that getting justice in the country is really time taking. Our laws should be reassessed. Justice has to happen faster.

Huma Qureshi (via Twitter) – Rape is saying-I can violate u whenever I want. Killing rapists wnt solve nything. Respect women on an everyday basis. Stop nurturing men 2 think they r masters. Its not ok to b rude,uncouth even in seemingly small ways.In dat attitude is d seed of d problem. Or women to think that they r either 2 be put indoors, away from d male gaze nor goddesses to b put on a pedestal. Eveteasing,sex selection,domestic violence,dowry,honor killings…If u have seen ny injustice on women n been silent. YOU guilty as rapists

I normally don’t post about such events, but this one I couldn’t ignore. As a human being, we have God given rights. Life is one, and being able to live that life happily, is another. These rights aren’t tied to ones race, sex or religion, these rights are for everyone. When these rights are violated, what is left for us? I seriously think we as a human race need to wake up and stop blaming the victims of such tragedy, and take proper action to ensure that evil, like in this girls case, doesn’t happen again. How can we do this? No, it isn’t easy, but if people are properly punished for such crimes, instead of the victim being scrutinized–maybe then we will start to see changes. 

God rest her soul.

Photo of the week: Rihanna and Chris Brown at the Lakers game

Photo:Instagram

Rihanna and Chris Brown are seen out together, in the open for the first time since 2009. Check them out sitting side-by-side at the Lakers vs. Knicks game at Staples Center. No one knows for sure if they are a couple again, but it sure does seem like it. Chris did dump his girl friend Karrueche recently, and Rihanna has been spotted secretly meeting up with Chris. So, I guess that pretty much sums it up!

Ranveer Singh’s new look!

Ranveer Singh is starving himself and working out religiously for his upcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film with Deepika Padukone. The bollywood star is so dedicated that when the director ordered some biryani (an Indian rice dish)  he refused to have it. So no cheating for Ranveer, and a source added  “So impressed was Bhansali with Ranveer’s dedication that he promised him that after the day’s shooting got over, he would take him to a restaurant of Ranveer’s choice and treat him to the most scrumptuous meal ever!”

You always hear about hollywood stars starving themselves, working out, etc  for movies. It’s refreshing to see a bollywood star go the extra mile to deliver a more convincing performance. Kudos to Ranveer!

Ben Affleck wants to work with Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart and Ben Affleck are reportedly going to be working together in a romantic comedy called “Focus.” Stewart revealed, now that she’s done with Twilight Saga- Breaking Dawn 2, she would like to switch it up a bit. She tells a source “I’m kind of desperate to get a job right now. I’m itching to get back to work.” As for Ben, well, he thinks Kristen is just “Terrific,” and wants to work with her. The Actor/Director told a source, “I’m hesitant to get into casting stuff because I don’t know what’s finished or isn’t because people come in and out of things all the time. But she’s terrific and hopefully it will work out.”

I wonder what Kristen’s die hard fans will think when they see her in a completely different role than what she’s known for…

Justin and Selena’s breakup update

So here’s an update on Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber for all you fans. According to sources, Selena wants nothing to do with Justin and is doing everything to get away from him. Thats right, she has went as far as blocking her phone number and text messages. OMG! Justin must’ve caused some serious damage there. Hmm, so maybe the rumors about “another woman” are true. Could it be a Victoria Secret model? He was drooling all over the models backstage at The Victoria Secret show in NYC.

Poor Selena, keep your head up babe…we know relationships can suck.

Stars come together for Yash Chopra’s final movie

Stars gathered for the movie premiere of ‘Jab tak hai jaan’ in Mumbai’s Yash Raj studios. Everyone who is a somebody in Bollywood came out to pay a tribute to one of Bollywood’s greatest filmmakers, Yash Chopra. Even Salman Khan who’s rumored to have “beef” with Shahrukh Khan, put aside his differences and showed up to the event.  Good to see the Khans are finally growing up ;)

Anushka Sharma, Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif

Bipasha Basu, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Shahrukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor, strike a pose for the cameras.

It’s fun to see what Bollywood’s wearing these days. Some of them have come a long way from kurta pajama and saris, thats for sure. I still feel A LOT of them could use some fashion advice and are in serious need of a stylist.
