Trump administration approves Keystone XL pipeline 24.3.2017
Washington: The Trump administration issued a permit on Friday to build the Keystone XL pipeline, reversing the Obama administration and clearing the way for the USD 8 billion project to finally be completed. The decision caps a years-long fight between environmental groups and energy industry advocates over the pipeline's fate that became a proxy battle over global warming. It marks one of the biggest steps taken to date by the Trump administration to prioritize economic development over environmental concerns. The State Department, responsible for reviewing the project because it crosses an international border, determined that building it serves US national interests. That conclusion followed a review of environmental, economic and diplomatic factors, the department said.

Mumbai: National Award winning actor-producer Arjun Rampal, who is gearing up for his upcoming film 'Daddy', says he might land up in jail if he talks much about the research done on Arun Gawli, for the flick. Arjun, who was present at FICCI Frames 2017 along with director Ashim Ahluwalia, talked in depth about his film based on the infamous gangster-turned-politician. "A lot of research was done for the film and if I talk too much about it, then probably I will land up in jail," said the 44-year-old.

We also had to get the rights and permission from the family; making it clear to them that this is not something which is just going to be a propaganda around the character.
