Actress Bhumi Pednekar is busier than ever, and she says that an increase in professional responsibility and fan frenzy is a happy problem for any actor.

“When you want to become an actor, you dream that your responsibility increases, that your fan-following and their love for you increases. You want to keep them happy and satisfied with your films, so it’s a happy problem to have,” Said Bhumi.


Last year was fabulous for the actress. Her roles in “Saand Ki Aankh”, “Bala” and “Pati Patni Aur Woh” were universally applauded, and she has great roles coming up. “2019 was really a special year because my films were appreciated by the audience. I am getting the love and respect at award ceremonies as well,” said Bhumi, at NexBrands Brand Vision Summit and Awards 2020.

At Filmfare Awards this year, where she shared the Best Actress (Critics’ Choice) trophy with her “Saand Ki Aankh” co-star Taapsee Pannu, there has been major controversy over “Gully Boy” sweeping the awards. Twitterati slammed the decision and #BoycottFilmare began trending.

On the controversy, Bhumi said: “I feel each body or panel takes its decision, so I don’t think I am in a place to comment about what is right or wrong. We (Taapsee and Bhumi) won the award in critic’s category, which was decided by jury. I am thankful for that.”

Bhumi has a couple of heroine-centric projects lined up over the next few months. There is the horror thriller “Durgavati”, her first solo release as a heroine. The film directed by G. Ashok, is based on his 2018 Telugu film “Bhaagamathie”. Bhumi reprises the role of an IAS officer that was played by Anushka Shetty in the original.

Recently, Tom and Jerry was made into a live action film

Every child who grew up in the 90s and the early 00s has certainly grown up around Tom and Jerry, the adorable, infamous cat-chases-mouse cartoon. The idea of naughtiness and playing mischief had the standards that this particular series set for children and defined how much wreckage was funny enough.

The show's creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera initially named their characters Jasper and Jinx. They did not plan for the fame that Tom and Jerry brought them when they released a movie by the name of "Puss Gets the Boot". This movie featured a certain cat and mouse who were a notorious pair, named Jasper and Jinx. When the movie became a hit, the names of the characters were changed and the show shot to fame.

Indians Rarely Make Time For Arts And Culture, Says Survey

One of India's leading private museums, the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) Bengaluru, has released new primary research conducted by the ReReeti Foundation, on audience behaviour in India's cultural sector. While more than half of the respondents thought the arts and culture are essential, they rarely manage to make time for it. The majority (60.6 per cent), mostly young people under 30, felt Indian museums could present more engaging content, and most perceived culture as anthropological/ sociological. Of the diverse categories included, music emerged as the most popular cultural activity.

The report is based on a survey of 500 people, which included school and college students, professionals across sectors, homemakers and senior citizens. The first initiative of its kind in the cultural space, the report shares valuable insights into the behaviour and expectations of Indian audiences engaging with a broad range of cultural activities. As part of MAP's mission to foster meaningful connections between communities and the cultural sector globally, which includes its innovative digital programme Museums Without Borders, the report shares a wealth of insights that can help museums across the country understand their audiences better. As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.
