    Karan Johar, who will be making his acting debut as the sinister Kaizad Khambatta in Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet, was in a mood to pull his director’s leg rather mercilessly during the launch event of the second trailer of the film. When asked if he would ever return the favour by directing Anurag in a movie someday, KJo guffawed, "Of course not! I would never direct Anurag in a movie...I only work with good-looking actors!

  • Nepal is not the big one: Next Himalayan earthquake maybe closer to home and far more serious - Firstpost

    The quake, which reduced large parts of Kathmandu to rubble, is not the 'great Himalayan quake' that the region has been bracing for. Down To Earth magazine quoted Roger Bilham, geologist with the University of Colorado Boulder who studies the seismicity of the Himalayan area as saying, "At a magnitude of 7.9 on the Richter scale, the April 25 earthquake has caused devastation but it is not the anticipated “great Himalayan earthquake”. This does not qualify as a great earthquake which needs to be of magnitude 8".

    So India is finally coming around to the practice held dear by budget airlines across the world - each piece of checked in luggage could be charged extra on a flight. A senior official in the DGCA had then said that only partial unbundling of services has been allowed and AirAsia cannot charge extra for every piece of checked in luggage.A senior AirAsia India official had indicated last week that though M Sathiyawathy, now heading DGCA, has liberalised unbundling of services and the airline was keen to offer a scheme where each piece of checked in luggage would be charged, he was unclear if the latest DGCA circular on unbundling actually meant all airlines were free to do so.A SpiceJet spokesperson said the airline has been granted permission to launch the 'Travel Light, Save More' scheme by the DGCA. q

  • Sorry, India is in Nepal to offer relief, not just evacuate stranded Indians - Firstpost

    The narrative in India’s ongoing relief, rescue, rehabilitation and evacuation efforts in the quake-hit Nepal under “Operation Maitri” has suddenly changed – and changed for worse. Why is the Indian media focusing on the evacuation aspects only of OP Maitri? The very objective of Indian efforts in Nepal has been lost due to the focus on evacuation – and that too of Indians “stranded” in Nepal. True, Indian Air Force’s IL-76 planes are bringing back stranded Indians from Nepal to India as it means putting IAF’s assets to better use.
