Actor-turned-politician Ravi Kishan will now raise the issue of vulgarity in Bhojpuri films in Parliament and demand the setting up of a separate Censor Board for Bhojpuri films.

The MP from Gorakhpur told reporters that “The Bhojpuri language is 1,000 years old and is spoken by 25 crore people. Some people are tarnishing the image of the language by adding vulgarity in Bhojpuri songs. I will demand a stringent law against it and also discuss the matter with chief minister Yogi Adityanath about setting up a separate Censor Board in Uttar Pradesh for films, especially for those in the Bhojpuri language.”


Ravi Kishan said that Gorakhpur will soon become a film shooting hub.

“Not many people knew about Switzerland till they saw the films of Yash Chopra shot there,” he said.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
