      What rubbish. Gurmehar expressed her opinions in a free country. So did those who disagree with her. For your political madness, you will now compare her with a girl who was physically aulted and pictured in a moving car, you pervert?

          movies inspires us and we inspire movies. Whether life is fake or movie is fake is hard to understand. We should appreciate the guts shown by the actress who spoke against the evil but who is contributing to this evil in the society is something we all should check within us. We all have evil hidden inside but the goodness in us who acts like a guardian protects the evil from coming out.
