There was once a time when parties at the Bachchan household, particularly during Holi, was among the most talked about bash in Bollywood, matching up to late Raj Kapoor’s parties. With newer stars, things have changed and while many stars have been hosting Diwali parties, for the Bachchans, it was a quiet Diwali, at home with family, puja and some sparklers.

Bollywood actress Radhika Apte expresses her happiness over the upcoming Critics' Choice Short Film Awards. While the actress is ruling the year with her back to back successes at the box office as well as the digital platform, Radhika Apte is glad that short films are winning accolades and awards like full-length features. The actress created a rage amongst the audience with her sensational short film 'Ahalya' directed by Sujoy Ghosh. After impressing the audience with her sensual act in 'Ahalya', Radhika Apte further garnered immense appreciation for other short films in varied languages.

Over a month since the #MeToo movement triggered a much-needed dialogue in the country, it was almost imperative to go back and chat with the woman whose story started it all — Tanushree Dutta. Though her account of being sexually harassed by Nana Patekar on the set of Horn Ok Pleassss (2008) inspired a sea of women to come forward and name their sexual perpetrators, the movement appears to be unfortunately petering out.But Dutta insists the revolution is here to stay. "This is a spark that has ignited the consciousness of people. True, the initial burst is over, but now it will remain in people's minds and help cleanse the industry. The movement started with Bollywood and then, women, who never thought they would speak up, came forward."
