mid-day exclusive: Akshay Kumar's PadMan trailer packs a solid punch 15.12.2017 mid-day.com
At the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa recently, Akshay Kumar had quipped, "America has Batman, Superman, Spiderman. India has 'Angry Young Man'," referring to actor Amitabh Bachchan. It's interesting that the trailer of Akshay's latest film, in turn, opens with Big B's voiceover referring again to the American superheroes, except he says that India has in fact Pad Man . Akshay Kumar in Pad Man That twist apart, the trailer of R Balki's Padman, produced by Twinkle Khanna, which drops online today, takes some fine turns to reveal a very realistic story (it's based on innovator Arunachalam Muruganantham's life), told in an extremely entertaining format — a formula of sorts that Akshay has lately mastered, to deliver six back-to-back hits in a row already! His last release, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, on the problem of open defecation in India, was predominantly set in Mathura. From the look of it, Padman is shot in both, picturesque India (mainly Maheshwar, near Indore), and the US (the ...

GMADA hikes fee for sports complexes 15.12.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Mohali, December 14 Close on the heels of increase in the water tariff, the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) has increased the fees for the five sports complexes across the town, lending a blow to the budding sportspersons and residents who avail various services at these centres. Interestingly, all the five centers — Phase V, Phase VII, Phase IX, Sector 69 and Sector 71 — have poor infrastructure. The wooden flooring of badminton courts is broken at several places and so are the tiles in swimming pools and change rooms.  The football ground at Phase VII Sports Complex is uneven, due to which several budding players sustain injuries. There is no water supply to the change rooms attached to the swimming pools. Lighting at the badminton courts is also not up to the mark. Toilets in all the sports complexes could be found stinking at any given time. Taps are missing from water coolers. Several windowpanes in the sports halls are broken and the authorities never bother ...

Oppn slams govt on forest scam 15.12.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, December 14 Opposition parties today hit out at the state government for turning a blind eye to the “siphoning off” of Rs6 crore in the name of afforestation, and demanded an inquiry into the matter. The Tribune on Thursday reported that not a single pit was dug up nor a single sapling planted even as Rs6 crore was sanctioned from September to November for the purpose. Leader of the Opposition Abhay Singh Chautala said, “The Manohar Lal Khattar government pretends to be an honest one, but almost all ministers and MLAs of the ruling party are neck deep in corruption.” He cited examples of a scam in the purchase of “dal” under the dal-roti scheme of the state government, mining of minerals and purchase of electricity equipment. The INLD leader demanded an investigation from an independent agency, as the State Vigilance Bureau (SVB), he said, was not expected to conduct a fair probe.
