It may be recollected that the BJP MLA in a press meet held last week had shown a video and a photograph of the minor girl with accused youngsters. The MLA who is a lawyer himself, while showing the clip and picture stated that he was sharing them while claiming that it was proof of AIMIM MLA’s son’s presence in the car along with the victim.
The video clip was shared on social media. The MLA was severely criticized for making the identity of the victim public.
Two YouTubers and a journalist named Subhani were also booked for sharing the video clips.
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush.

There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
