Is India no longer safe for children, wonder Bollywood film celebrities like Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Deshmukh, expressing anger over the gang rape and assault of an eight-year-old schoolgirl in Madhya Pradesh.

The child was abducted while she was waiting for her father outside her school on Tuesday. She was gang raped, her throat slit and left to die.

A day later, the Madhya Pradesh Police arrested Irfan alias Bhaiyu, 20, a labourer, on the basis of CCTV footage, followed by the arrest of another construction worker in the case. Both were booked under relevant sections of the IPC and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Here’s what celebrities, disheartened and disturbed by such incidents of crimes against children, tweeted:

Riteish Deshmukh: Nothing angers me more than this. A 7 year old is kidnapped and gang raped. Enough is enough. The culprits should be flogged and hanged publicly.

Farhan Akhtar: Given the alarming frequency and the sheer perversion of the crime, one must ask… Is our country no longer safe for children?

Swara Bhaskar: Shameful and horrifying news from Mandsaur where a child was gang raped and brutalised. Glad to note that leaders have assured a speedy trial. These monsters deserve the harshest punishment.

Esha Gupta: I am sorry little girl. Sorry this country isn’t safe for you. Sorry these men don’t see you as a God’s child that you are. Sorry that the people are seeing just politics in this, but not the love that you are.

Farhan Akhtar: Given the alarming frequency and the sheer perversion of the crime, one must ask... Is our country no longer safe for children?

Richa Chadha: How can anyone do this to another human being, let alone a child? Depravity! Kudos to Mandsaur Superintendent of Police for nabbing the culprit within the day and to Yunus Shaikh for announcing the accused will get no burial.

Vishal Dadlani: Ain’t it amazing? Instead of questioning the government about the disgusting Mandsaur rape, right-wing heroes only e-question those who demanded justice for Kathua and Unnao? By the way, has BJP taken out rapist-bachao rallies in Mandsaur yet? They did, in Kathua.

Shruti Seth: Instead of name calling shouldn’t we all unanimously condemn all rapes and every rapist? How about committing ourselves to keeping every child of our country safe from crimes. It’s a fight we must fight together. (IANS)

Hobbies are relaxing and help us cope with the everyday stresses of life. Celebrities lead busier lives than most of us so it should come as no surprise that many of them have hobbies too. That said, you might be surprised at what some of their interests include, although really they are no stranger than yours or mine.

George Clooney Makes Shoes

According to Listverse, George Clooney makes shoes in his spare time. He revealed that this is his favourite pastime on Reddit in 2014, stating that he is a better cobbler than Daniel Day-Lewis who also has the same passion.

Kate Moss Plays Bingo

Kate Moss developed her love of bingo as a young girl and according to articles in the Telegraph and the Mirror, she still loves to play although these days she tends to play online.  She joins the many thousands of others who play on sites such as Buzz Bingo largely because of the variety of games.

 According to Cultbox, she is not the only one with this pastime. Mick Jagger even holds bingo parties at his luxury home, and there is no shortage of celebrity pals ready to attend.

 Bill Murray Loves Gatecrashing

 Bill Murray just loves to turn up where he is least expected. As well as making us all laugh on TV and the big screen, he loves to put joy into people’s day-to-day lives. There are many stories of him serving in bars, giving out drinks for free and even making surprise appearances at events. He has joined bachelor parties, engagement parties and even once crashed a private house party where he washed the dishes for the host. In fact, there are so many of these antics that a website, Bill Murray Stories, has been started to make them more public.

 Nicolas Cage And Comic Books

 Nicolas Cage has an obsession with comic books and has an extremely large collection. Even his surname “Cage” comes from the Marvel character, Luke Cage, as he did not want to be accused of using his true family name to further his career. He is actually the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola, Coppola being his real surname. According to GEMR, his collection was built up, sold and then rebuilt. Although he has sold some of them again, he decided to retain most this time around.

He also has several exotic pets.  On top of that, among his collection of motor vehicles, there are nine Rolls Royce cars and 30 motorbikes. Property wise, he owns an island, a castle and a mansion that is said to be haunted.
