Lack of innocence in Hindi films worries Juhi (Movie Snippets)

July 19th, 2012 - 4:41 pm ICT by IANS  

Abhishek Bachchan Mumbai, July 19 (IANS) Actress Juhi Chawla says recent Bollywood films had begun to worry her about the lost charm and innocence, but Abhishek Bachchan-starrer clean film “Bol Bachchan” has restored her faith.

“Just watched ‘Bol Bachchan’ at a movie theatre in Kampala. Had a good laugh! The movie is completely cracked! Ajay Devgn and Abhishek were hilarious. Everyone in the movie was fun,” tweeted Juhi.

“And what I liked about it most… it was a clean film! The girls skirts were long… The necklines high… No nonsense unnecessary kissing or sleeping around… Call me old fashioned but I was beginning to get worried about Hindi films. Wanting to be so much like Hollywood films… losing their charm, originality, innocence,” added the 44-year-old, whose popular films include “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak”, “Darr” and “Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke”.

Rani to get award for helping stray dog

Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji’s noble deed of helping a dog in distress has won her an award. Her kind deed has been recognised by animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.

Rani was shooting for her upcoming film “Aiyya” when she reportedly saw a stray dog being harassed by a few onlookers on the set. She rushed to help the dog by stopping them.

For this, Rani will receive a Hero to Animals Award from PETA India.

“This dog would have been terrified and suffered more abuse were it not for Rani’s compassionate and quick action,” said Sachin Bangera, PETA India manager of media and celebrity projects.

“We encourage everyone to stop and speak up for animals who are subjected to pain or suffering, because if you don’t, maybe no one else will,” he added.

Past recipients of PETA’s Hero to Animals Award include actors like Zarine Khan, for rescuing a cat from the street, and Cyrus Broacha, for refusing to perform a stunt that involved riding a bull.
