Set for a September 21 release,Madhur Bhandarkars ambitious project,Heroine,will now have three trailers. Since the film has got an A certificate from the Censor Board,there will be three different trailers for the audience. The first,with an A rating,will be available only online. The second trailer,with U/A certificate,will be for theatre and TV audiences,and the third will be for the UK audience,which will be for those above 12 years of age. For the U/A trailer,cigarette scenes will be blurred,some adult scenes will be cut down and offensive words will either be beeped or replaced. The censor boards explanation is that the trailers were very bold and not appropriate for TV viewing. In a bold avatar,Kareena Kapoor,who is known to despise smoking,will be seen puffing and mouthing expletives.
On a MAD Hunt
Its one of the fastest growing youth volunteer networks in India,with 1,200 youngsters across 23 cities,who are committed to providing quality education to over 5,400 underprivileged children. Initiated by a few college students in Cochin,when they saw a large disparity in the way the rich and poor learned,Make A Difference (MAD) now has a Chandigarh chapter,with 40 volunteers. At present,we teach 100 children in four shelter homes here, informs Vidur Varma,team leader of Friends of MAD in Chandigarh. With the current focus on children in street shelters,orphanages and poor homes,Varma says,the aim is to ensure that underprivileged children are brought into the mainstream,so that they can choose their careers based on their potential and interests and not their financial constraints. As part of the fund-raising activity,the Chandigarh team has organised HUNT 4 MAD,a treasure hunt that will be held on July 29 with the start point at Hotel Icon in Sector 8,Chandigarh.
