Taapsee Pannu, Riteish Deshmukh React to Bombay HC’s ‘Groping Without Skin Contact Is Not Sexual Assault’ Verdict

Published

By




Justice Pushpa Ganediwala of the Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court, in a judgement passed on January 19 said that if a person is groping a child without any ‘skin to skin’ contact, then it will not be considered as an act of sexual assault as defined under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. The verdict left many in shock where celebrities like Taapsee Pannu, Riteish Deshmukh took to social media to react to the decision taken by the court. ‘Skin to Skin Contact With Sexual Intent’ Must be There And Mere Groping Would Not Amount to Sexual Assault, Rules Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court.



Taapsee shared a post with a news headline that mentioned the ‘skin to skin’ statement and said she had no words to describe how she feels about this decision. A few hours later, she tweeted again putting the hashtag #NationalGirlChildDay2021 in her message and said this is what she has to say about the whole incident. Yesterday marked the National Girl Child Day and Taapsee made sure she used it to make it clear how she feels about the verdict.




Ritesh Deshmukh also shared the same post and asked netizens if it was fake news. Director Onir also tweeted a long message expressing his anger towards Bombay HC’s decision. He even tweeted saying, “#BombayHighCourt owes an apology to all children and CSA survivors. This is so disturbing.” Shibani Dandekar, Raghu Ram also condemned the decision through social media posts. Kangana Ranaut and Sister Rangoli Chandel Get Interim Relief by Bombay HC in Sedition Case Until January 25.

The Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court passed the order while hearing a petition by Satish. The man has been convicted by a local court under Sections 354, 363 and 342 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012. Back in December 2016, the accused had taken the minor victim to his house in Nagpur on the pretence of giving her something to eat. He then grabbed her breasts and attempted to remove her clothes.

“The appellant/ accused is convicted for the offence of ‘sexual assault’. As per the definition of ‘sexual assault’, a ‘physical contact with sexual intent without penetration’ is an essential ingredient of the offence. The act of pressing of the breast of the child aged 12 years, in the absence of any specific detail as to whether the top was removed or whether he inserted his hand inside top and pressed her breast, would not fall in the definition of ‘sexual assault’. It would certainly fall within the definition of the offence under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code,” read the court order. Let us tell you that section 354 necessitates a minimum sentence of imprisonment for one year while sexual assault under the POCSO Act causes minimum imprisonment of three years.

Godzilla vs Kong Trailer: Fans Spot ‘Mechagodzilla’ in the Promo, Call Him the Real Villain in This Monster Showdown

Published

on

By




No matter how dumb Godzilla vs Kong turns out to be, fans would be really excited to see King Kong share some pretty heavy blows with the giant mutant lizard. Just hoping that the scenes won’t be shrouded in darkness and haze as we saw in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Or not wait till the third act for the actual showdown to begin, as we were left disappointed in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (and let’s also hope that Kong won’t stop punching Godzilla, because the latter says, ‘Save Mothra’!). The trailer that dropped on January 24has surely amped up our excitement. Godzilla vs Kong Trailer: Two Fan-Favourite Titans Exchange Mighty Blows In This Exhilarating Promo (Watch Video).



One thing that left fans curious about the trailer is that it pitched Kong in a more positive light and puts him as kind of saviour for humankind. While Godzilla is shown as someone who is destroying humanity, as Kyle Chandler’s returning Dr Mark Russell (from Godzilla: King of the Monsters) puts it, though he is clueless as to why Godzilla is doing so.




For Kong was the hero of his movie, Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla the hero of two other movies, Godzilla (2014 film) and of course, King of the Monsters. At the end of the latter, Godzilla, having killed King Ghidorah, becomes the undisputed king among the Titans (except Kong). So has power gone to his head, and he is now hell-bent on killing humans?

Watch the trailer:

Well, it looks like Godzilla vs Kong could be going Batman V Superman way, as there is a possibility that there could be a Lex Luthor involved. By Luthor, we mean a third manipulator. Eagle-eyed fans have spotted two references of Mechagodzilla in the trailer, and they believe it is he/it that is causing the havoc.

The first scene is the below:

In the background behind, you could see they are working on something that is like Godzilla (check the legs), but more like a robot.

And then there is this very small scene in the trailer…

A closer look at the monster emerging from the debris doesn’t exactly look like Godzilla.






A Still From Godzilla vs Kong Trailer

Either it could be a case of bad CGI or something else. Like a Mechagodzilla!

So what is Mechagodzilla? In the Kaiju-universe (as Godzilla’s cinematic world is known in Japanese Cinema), Mechagodzilla is like a robotic doppelganger to Godzilla, created by man to protect them from the lizard with atomic breath. Fan theories are doing the rounds that in Godzilla vs Kong, some evil human corporation wants to show Godzilla in a bad light, so they create Mechagodzilla and pin blame of all the destruction he does on Godzilla.

If that’s the case then, we might be heading towards an actual ‘Save Martha!’ scene between Godzilla and Kong. Still, it would be cheesy fun to see two fan-favourite monsters hitting each other on the big screen.

Godzilla vs Kong is directed by horror filmmaker Adam Wingard in his first big-budget production. The movie stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler and Demián Bichir. Produced by Warner Bros, the movie is releasing in theaters and also streaming exclusively on HBO Max from March 26.
