Sunny Leone in ‘row’ over obscenity!

Sunny Leone is a name which is synonymous with obscenity and seduction and probably there is none who must have not heard of her or her career as a porn star. 

Hence when a Thane based housewife registered a police complaint alleging Sunnny Leone of corrupting the minds of children through her vulgar and titillating website a huge furor has been made over the social working sites like Facebook and twitter. 

According to reports a housewife from Dombivali, (Thane District), Anjali Vinod Palan, 30, in her complaint to Dombivali police reported that she was left dumbfounded when she found objectionable and strictly obscene material while she was surfing about Sunny Leone.

Confirming about the complaint SB Shivarkar, senior inspector, Dombivli police station informed, “The lady was surfing Leone’s pictures on a social networking site after being inquisitive about her popularity. However to her utter shock when she clicked a link to a website bearing the actor’s name, she was extremely aggravated at what she watched.”

“With two colleagues she lodged a complaint against the actress alleging Sunny Leone for distribution of obscene content on web and social networking sites,” he added. 

When the news spread on social media a lot of people criticized the lady stating targeting Sunny Leone is wrong as the internet is filled with multiple such sites and it up to the intelligence of the user which content to watch! 

A critic from Mumbai in his message rightly said, “If the internet was to be censored than in all probability half the content on Internet would be banned. Hence Ms. Anjali, instead of fighting a battle against Sunny Leone, it is better you teach your kids on what to watch on Internet.”

The Dombivili police have transferred the case to the Cyber Crime cell of Thane police for further probe.


‘History repeats itself’ goes a famous English axiom. It seems in the case of Anurag Kashyap's directorial venture BOMBAY VELVET, history is repeating itself! Not Understood? 

Well according to the latest reports by trade pundits Anurag Kashyap's much anticipated and much publicized film BOMBAY VELVET has failed to set the box office ringing! 

Trade reports pouring from famous trade magazines have revealed that the Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma starrer BOMBAY VELVET has only managed to pull in 45-50% film buffs in cinema halls across the country. What is most shocking is that in many places in India the cinema owners were compelled to cancel their morning shows due to a poor occupancy!!

Eminent Trade analyst Komal Nahta in his tweet informed, "Bad start for BOMBAY VELVET. 1st show at Fun, Gwalior cancelled due to lack of audience. In addition two Inoxes Cinema halls in Indore too reported a dismal collection.” 

Nahta added, the opening of BOMBAY VELVET was even poorer than Ranbir Kapoor’s last flop ROY. He tweeted, “Even ROY had a better opening than BOMBAY VELVET.” 

If readers would recollect in the past history is packed with several films that were highly publicized but when they released they fell flat on their face. Remember Salman Khan’s VEER, Hrithik Roshan’s KITES, Aamir Khan’s MANGAL PANDE, Mani Ratnam’s RAAVAN the list is long. 

However the movie that shall go down in history as the biggest ever debacle was Anil Kapoor’s ROOP KI RANI CHORON KA RAJA (1993). 

Produced by Bonny Kapoor at a rough estimate of Rs 9 Crore (a huge amount then) the movie was started in 1987 but it took six years in making.

It was written by Javed Akhtar (of Slaim Javed fame) and was initially directed by International fame director Shekhar Kapur, who left the project halfway through and was later directed by Satish Kaushik.

The media was ablaze with juicy tales about the making of movie just like Anurag Kashyap's directorial venture BOMBAY VELVET and the film folks gave a thums up at its screening but when it released the audience declared it a flop on day one!! 


Well the movie has a good weekend without no new film release as competition, hence it can turn the table, if the movie is really good and worth watching!
