Tiger Shroff reminds us of Michael Jackson in Munna Michael’s first poster

Tiger Shroff is not only known as a great actor but also a super dancer. The first poster of his much awaited action-dance film Munna Michael is out and we must say it’s one of a kind. The film stars Tiger Shroff and debutant Nidhhi Agerwal along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. 

The poster has Tiger looking great with his oozing confidence as he walks through a crowd cheering for him. Filmmaker Sabbir Khan is directing the movie who has previously also directed Tiger in Heropanti (2014) and Baaghi (2016).

Tiger Shroff will be seen paying tribute to the legendary Michael Jackson in the film while Nawaz would be play a grey character in a never-seen-before avatar.

Tiger Shroff shared the poster of his next saying, “Moonwalking in the steps of the legend! 🙂 #MunnaMichaelPoster #MunnaMichael @sabbir24x7 @eros_now @vikirajani @filmsnextgen.”

Do tell us what you think about Tiger’s look in the poster.

Varun Dhawan defends Priyanka Chopra from the trolls

Recently, Priyanka Chopra met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin and she was trolled by social media for wearing short dress and showing her legs. Recently at an event when Varun Dhawan was asked about it, he said, “She is someone we all should be proud of in our country. She is making our country proud abroad and all this is very stupid. Social media trolling is not something that needs to become a national issue.”

Shruti Haasan and Rajkumar Rao have kickstarted the promotions for their upcoming rom-com Behen Hogi Teri and we love how Shruti is flaunting her easy breezy summer loving looks.

And hence, we have decoded Shruti Haasan’s style. Cold shoulders it is! Leaving her mane loose with minimal accessory, Shruti does it simply yet stunning.

First spotted at the airport, Shruti donned a black silk top with a fringe jacket and ripped jeans turning the paparazzi towards her in an instant. And next the diva was snapped with her co-star Rajkummar Rao promoting the film in Delhi. While Rajkumar Rao wore a zesty yellow jacket over a grey t-shirt and blue trousers with of course his cap, Shruti slayed, first in a blue floral cold shoulder dress with statement UFO earrings and then in a quirky abstract cold shoulder dress with white sneakers. 

We just have two words, love love!

Movie Review: Dear Maya

This post was originally published on this site
Movie Review: Dear Maya

Rating: 3 stars

Quick take: Happy and fluffy film on love and letters

We live in an age when concepts like love, letters and innocence seem like old library nostalgia rather than real-life facts. But that’s exactly the charm of these old-world ideas. Once you see them, you appreciate the charm and candour associated with them. Manisha Koirala’s new film, Dear Maya builds on these jaded but engaging ideas. Two seemingly naïve girls in Shimla write letters to their reclusive neighbor Maya Devi (Koirala) in an attempt to stir some Shah Rukh Khan type love in her life. The story is pure fluff, there’s no womb trembling insights in here. Just a plain vanilla story of three women reclaiming their lives and finding out the world isn’t all that bad. You know love letters, dolls and bird cages aren’t going to change the world. But they do spin an interesting yarn, like an old granny tale.

The story starts off in the quaint environs of Shimla where school girls Anna (Madiha Imam) and Ira (Shreya Chaudhary) decide the only way to get rid of their listless feelings was to write prank letters to their mysterious neighbor Maya Devi. Maya’s the dark, shady figure who lives in a dilapidated old house. She has two huge dogs as company and a local help that looks like the female version of Igor from the Dracula stories. Anna’s mother informs them of Maya’s tragic past. So the girls decide they’ll write hopelessly romantic letters to the lady in black just add colour to all their lives. But their seemingly harmless idea of fun, goes wrong, when Maya get convinced by her paramour to the extent that she decides to go meet him in Delhi. Anna has a panic attack of sorts, but all her innocent guilt can’t stop Maya from disappearing into obscurity.

While that premise may seem like it leads to some high drama and thrills, Dear Maya never gets dark or grim. It maintains a level of happiness and hope about it. Anna does have nightmare fueled 6 years, but even then, she manages to fall in love and grows up to be an alluring and charming girl. She continues to look for Maya though. Ira on the other hand has her set of tragedies too. All three women though get their much-deserved happy endings. Dear Maya turns out like an old Guy de Maupassant story where good things happen to good people.

The movie has detailed dialogue even though the screenplay isn’t all that fancy. The self-aware writing ensures the characters ask relevant questions and establish good self-critique. Even in its most outrageous moments, Dear Maya maintains a good level emotional intelligence. The most remarkable part of the film is Manisha Koirala of course. One of the most beautiful faces to ever grace the Indian silver screen, she’s grown older and with the aid of some half-decent make-up she plays the haggard Maya Devi with no inhibitions and great sense of abandon. When Manisha’s character disappears for a major part of the second half, the movie feels a lot less engaging. Her performance is truly remarkable. The young girls Madiha Imam and Shreya Chaudhary do well with their parts too. Madiha’s on and off accent does feel a bit out of place, but she does really well with moments of heightened drama.

Dear Maya is a happy film about innocence, love and compassion. There’s no hard-hitting drama. Just a pleasant film with lots of love and genre fluff. A good film for those who believe in being hopelessly romantic.

Anand L Rai talks about casting Anushka Sharma with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in his next

Aanand L Rai’s film with Shah Rukh Khan has been in the news ever since its announcement. While Katrina Kaif came onboard earlier this year, there was ample speculation surrounding the casting of the other female lead in the film that is being produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions.

The makers have now finally confirmed that Anushka Sharma has been cast in the movie. Anushka , who has earlier worked with Shah Rukh Khan in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, also stars opposite him in Imtiaz Ali’s next . The two now reunite for Aanand L Rai’s ambitious directorial venture, where Shah Rukh Khan essays the role of a dwarf.

Says a source, “There were rumors of several actors having signed or being approached for Aanand L Rai’s film but that was pure conjecture by the media. The makers never confirmed or commented on the casting of the female leads before this. Few were aware of the fact that, Shah Rukh Khan had discussed this film with Anushka quite a while ago, while they were shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s film and were looking for the right time to make the announcement.”

Confirms director Aanand L Rai, ” I’m thrilled that Anushka Sharma joins Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif for my next. From our very first meeting, she had an instant connect with the character. She seemed very excited about the challenges that this role entails. She’s at a more than ready stage in her career to essay a complex role like this. We have been working on her look and prepping for the film. It was only once things fell into place that we wanted to announce Anushka’s casting.”

Two exciting breakthroughs in autonomous vehicle cybersecurity, though questions remain

Researchers in academia see the writing on the whiteboard when it comes to autonomous vehicle security, and are working hard to develop technology that will prevent cybercriminals from subverting what amounts to powerful computers that can drive, float, or fly.

SEE: Why the age of connected cars presents a ‘very real threat’ in cybersecurity (TechRepublic)

One such researcher is Nicola Bezzo, assistant professor of systems and information engineering at the University of Virginia. “About 50 percent of my work is understanding how to detect cyber attacks on modern vehicles, such as the car you drive every day, or robotic systems in airborne vehicles,” Bezzo tells Matt Kelly in this University of Virginia press release. “I try to understand the state of these systems, to see if they have been corrupted or not. The other 50 percent of my work is dedicated to making such systems more autonomous and smarter.”

More about IT Security

Bezzo gets right to the point, telling Kelly that autonomous vehicles are loaded with computerized systems and sensors that work great, adding that autonomous vehicles will be designed and tweaked so as to make them safer than current vehicles when it comes to movement and collision avoidance.

However, there is a caveat according to Bezzo: He suggests that autonomous vehicle manufacturers consider their computing platforms difficult to compromise. “I believe we are never going to be able to solve this problem completely,” explains Bezzo. “There is always a way to compromise your systems, to do something that you did not take into account.”

Why redundancy might be the answer

Redundancy is what Bezzo suggests to overcome attacks designed to compromise sensor systems or the computing platforms of autonomous vehicles. By using multiple sensors, for instance, the operator would see variations in sensor readings that might indicate an intrusion. Bezzo told Kelly, “If you compare the information from your sensors with others in your system, you can see if something is compromised or not.”

SEE: Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust (TechRepublic)

A slightly different approach to cybersecurity

Researchers at Texas A&M’s Cyberphysical Systems Laboratory are also concerned about sensors. “Sensors are like GPS navigation in the network that gather information about the environment,” graduate student Bharadwaj Satchidanandan is quoted as saying in this Texas A&M University press release. He added: “Actuators such as motors, or controls such as the steering wheel, interact with them. If the sensors are corrupted or hijacked by malicious agents through the internet, they can provide false information on vehicle locations resulting in collisions.”

SEE: Research: Defenses, response plans, and greatest concerns about cybersecurity in an IoT and mobile world (Tech Pro Research)

The Texas A&M research team headed by Dr. P. R. Kumar, professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, along with graduate students Woo-Hyun Ko and Bharadwaj Satchidanandan, have figured out how to apply dynamic watermarking to sensor traffic as a way to weed out malicious traffic.

The researchers are able to inject a random private signal called a watermark into traffic sent to the actuators. From the press release: “The presence of this watermark and its statistical properties were known to every node in the system, but its actual random values were not revealed. When the measurements reported by the sensors did not have the right properties of this watermark, the actuators assumed that the sensors or their measurements have been tampered with somewhere along the line. With this new information, the researchers could predict a collision.”

In this YouTube video, the researchers show how a tampered autonomous vehicle avoids collisions.

Kumar, Satchidanandan, and Woo-Hyun Ko caution that the ability to falsify sensor information applies in other industries as well. “This is an instance of the broader concern of security of cyberphysical systems,” notes Kumar. “The increasing integration of critical physical infrastructures, such as the smart grid or automated transportation, with the cyber system of the internet has led to such vulnerabilities. If these technologies are to be adopted by society, they will need to be protected against malicious attacks on sensors.”

The three researchers offer more details in their paper Theory and implementation of dynamic watermarking for cybersecurity of advanced transportation systems.

Unanswered questions

All the researchers expressed concern, adding there are a significant number of unanswered questions. “A lot of things in my research are about predicting,” alludes Professor Bezzo. “What happens if we have a wheel that is deflated or propellers that fall off or the motor stops working or the computer shut down? How long a time do I have before recovering?”

Bezzo also states, “In the end, you are trying to deflect an attacker as fast as you can.”
