Y-Films Makes A Li'l Film With A Big Heart

Image
Y-Films, the team that loves pushing big boundaries, be it for the cause of gender equality (Man’s World), transgender equality (the Cannes’ Lion Grand Prix winner 6-Pack Band), feminism (Ladies Room), sex education (Sex Chat with Pappu and Papa), or, umm, weddings (Bang Baaja Baaraat), makes a li’l film that will pull your heartstrings. What happens when kids read all the atrocious sexist rubbish that adults (mostly men) land up saying... from Trump to Indian politicians? Y-Films decided to actually put that to test with a bunch of really bright kids, who teach us all a thing or two about why it’s important that we don’t judge, label or discriminate by gender.

Sonakshi is NOTEworthy, says astrologer

Image
Sonakshi Sinha had once been told by an astrologer that books are lucky for her. She isn’t much of a reader or even superstitious but, the statement amused her. Sonakshi was not sure if the astrologer meant religious books or was recommending her to buy some book, so she let it pass without giving it much thought but the statement stuck with her. Now, looking back on what the astrologer said has piqued her curiosity since Lootera and Noor are both book adaptations. Her character Pakhi in Lootera got her a lot of love and appreciation from the audiences. It is a film that is really close to her heart and Pakhi is a role she is yet fondly remembered for. With Noor's trailer and songs receiving positive reactions, Sonakshi has been really excited for the film. It baffles Sonakshi that what the Astrologer had said is actually true or is the thought just playing on her mind. She shares "I don't believe in these things but, it is a happy coincidence. Noor and Lootera both are films…
