Amid the bad news of child marriage, molestation, female infanticide and puberty girls dropping out of schools for lack of toilets and non availability of proper sanitation during periods in the country, atleast, a certain sort of escapist news is from the lofty world of Bollywood.
With news of demi-goddesses ranging from 45 year old Malaika Arora dating 33 year old Arjun Kapoor to our Hollywood export, 36 year old Priyanka Chopra getting hitched in December to American singer Nick Jonas and even to the very recently confirmed news of former Miss Universe, 42 year old Sushmita Sen dating 27 year old Rohman Shawl, gender seems to have hold no bar for dating spouses much younger than themselves.
Whilst Bollywood is most infamous for lower pay to the fairer sex actor vis-a-vis their male counterpart, atleast, things looks upbeat as far as the real relationships of these reel stars are concerned.
A hero-centric film have always been the norm in Bollywood, although, there have been, few and far between, sporadic films that had women as protagonists.
In a deeply rooted patriarchal country, where cinema upholds the torchbearer for pop culture, these new phenomena of older female actors -dating and marrying- much younger actor should set a precedent for their forthcoming films which would , hopefully, catch up as pop culture in the society that have been entrenched for far too long in a norm that has always been of older men marrying much younger women.May the tribe of these female actors grow.

There are a lot of embarrassing first YouTube videos out there of Vloggers staring into their webcams with no idea what to do. The Rock is obviously not going to be one of those Vloggers. Dwayne Johnson launched his YouTube account today with nothing less than a movie trailer about how epic (or not so epic) his channel is going to be.
Hey wait, why are we babbling around you can see for yourself!
Johnson has become a huge fixture across social media, and it’s easy to picture this channel becoming another powerful tool for him to connect with fans, if not a platform his company can actually start to monetize. At least, as long as Johnson manages to find the time in his increasingly busy schedule.
