70th Anniversary of India-Thailand relations

“Thailand was one of the first countries with which India established diplomatic relations in 1947. The relationship between Indian and Thailand is actually rooted and antiquity. Our relationship covers all aspects, covering political aspect, economic and commercial, education, scientific, technology, basically just about everything (smile). We have frequently hosted High-Level Exchanges between our two countries. Also, India and Thailand have always been solid bilateral economic partners.

Slut Shaming Won’t Work, Not Ashamed Of My Desire, Says Kangana Ranaut

kangana-ranaut_640x480_71460113376

Actor Kangana Ranaut has said “slut-shaming won’t work” as she accused Hrithik Roshan of “blackmailing and threatening” her by circulating her “love poems” and photographs.

Ms Ranaut’s lengthy statement comes a day after her lawyers asked the Mumbai Police to advise Mr Roshan from sharing emails and other material sent to him by the 29-year-old who has thrice won the National Film Award.

“I am not ashamed of anything, not my past, not my affairs, not my body and most definitely not my desire,” said Ms Ranaut today, alluding to a past romantic relationship she claims sharing with Mr Roshan when they co-starred in the movie Krrish 3 in 2013.

Mr Roshan has flat out denied that they dated, and has in a legal notice to Ms Ranaut asked for an apology for using the term “silly exes” to refer to him. The 42-year-old says Ms Ranaut is trying to milk a fictitious relationship to gain publicity.

Mr Roshan has also asked the police to identify and prosecute an imposter who allegedly emailed Ms Ranaut, pretending to be Mr Roshan. She has said it was Mr Roshan who regularly communicated with her, not from his usual account but from a separate email address created to avoid detection at a time when his marriage to Sussanne Khan was strained. They divorced in 2014.

In a legal matter only on record statements can be addressed not gossips. So here’s my final word:

“If the other party who sued me for defamation and asked for a public apology can prove defamation, I promise to apologise publicly. I request the other party to respond to the legal matter which they have started and not turn this defamation suit in to a media trial and judgement. If they are sincerely seeking an apology then they must help me understand their perspective because blackmailing or threatening won’t work with me.”

Though my legal team is taking strict actions against blackmailing and threatening me but as a girl it doesn’t scare me. You won’t get a sorry by threatening me or circulating my love poems, letters or images.

I am not ashamed of anything, not my past, not my affairs, not my body and most definitely not my desire. So slut-shaming won’t work either. If they want an apology then they have to come to the point, beating about the bush won’t help, me and my team are eager to help as hurting sentiments isn’t our intention.”

Reportedly, the producers, Percept Picture Company has roped in the three finalists of IPL Miss Bollywood 2009, while Hashmi was keener on doing it with a known actress.

Then there was a disagreement over the girl. Percept wanted to take some new girl to save costs, while Emraan felt a known face would get better mileage.”
