CELEBRITY COLUMN | Shirishly Speaking - Shirish is the agony uncle you never saw coming 21.7.2017 DNA: Money

Or to make news and show off? —Bollywood Buff There’s less crowd there, and so easier to get the Sexiest Vegetarian Award. Filmi fundas Dear Shirish, In a recent awards function, it was sad to see a bunch of privileged Bollywood biggies not only target an outsider who has achieved so much on her own merit, but also shamelessly chant: “Nepotism rocks!” I know how difficult it is for outsiders to break into Bollywood, as I myself struggled my entire life and never even got an opportunity to prove my talent. And now my daughter is pursuing the same dream of trying to break into Bollywood as an actor. Being an outsider, she always lost to influential insiders from Bollywood.

In an interesting turn of events, the Supreme Court observed that the issue of homosexuality would need to be revisited if the Right to Privacy was ruled to be fundamental. The gay community in India may have reasons to cheer as this opens up an avenue where decriminalisation of homosexuality can be reconsidered. The observation came from a nine-judge bench which was hearing matters pertaining to Right to Privacy as a fundamental right. The bench led by the Chief Justice of India JS Khehar was formed in pursuance to matters pertaining to petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Aadhar. Speaking on the scope of privacy, Justice DY Chandrachud said: "What would be the scope of the right? Would it include marriage – probably yes; procreation – probably yes; sexual orientation – probably yes. The moment we say there is Right to Privacy, the order in Naz Foundation becomes vulnerable." If the bench agrees that sexual orientation comes under the ambit of the Right to Privacy, then the 2013 Naz ...
