After being a part of hits such as “Ajnabee”, “Raaz”, “No Entry” and “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, she has been away from the silver screen for almost four years. Actress Bipasha Basu, who is now set to make a comeback with the film “Aadat”, says she fears losing relevance.

Asked if she ever feared losing stardom, Bipasha told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “I have never been a desperate person. I have been a lucky girl and I have always lived by my own rules and not the industry norms, because when I started off I was called a bohemian because of the way I was… Fearing losing stardom, I don’t know, but yeah, fearing losing relevance definitely.”


She said the fear exists because there is so much investment involved as a person into it, and not just as an actor.

“I would have that little fear of losing relevance, but losing stardom, not so much, because I am the same person that I am. Right from the beginning…my wants have been simple,” said the actress, whose roles in films like “Jism” and “Raaz” stereotyped her as a ‘bold’ actress.

Bipasha’s last big screen outing was the 2015 film “Alone”. Among her other films are “Footpath”, “No Entry”, “Corporate”, “Omkara”, “Dhoom 2”, “Goal” and “Race”.

The 40-year-old, who married actor Karan Singh Grover in 2016, says her family life is always a priority for her over work and career. Her new film “Aadat” will reunite her with Karan on-screen once again after “Alone”.

What kept her away from the silver screen?

“I have been working since the age of 15, right after school as a model for the first three years. And from 19 when I started my first film till now. I have been acting for a very long time. I had very little time to spend with my family and post my wedding was my time that I reconnected with my family and I could spend a lot of time with them. It is essential to spend that much quality time with your parents and your entire family,” she said. (IANS)

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.

It's not surprising that over half of those surveyed feel more comfortable using emojis than talking on the phone or in person.

The tiny emojis being shared on billions of devices worldwide can play a major role in digital communication, with most people saying that emoji compels them to feel more empathy towards others, according to an Adobe report.

Adobe's global emoji study found that emoji even helps people overcome language barriers and form connections that would otherwise be difficult to do.

"We were surprised and delighted by the discoveries made in the survey, most notably how enthusiastic respondents were for emoji as a means to express themselves," the company said in a statement.

Emojis sometimes get criticized for being overly saccharine, but this sweetness is key when it comes to diffusing some of the heaviness of online communication.

"Many of the emoji are focused on positive emotions, so it's easy to insert them into our conversations and lighten the mood," the Adobe study said.
