Of late, Vivek Oberoi has been extending a lot of support to improve the condition of underprivileged children and the doting father has been associated with many causes for the same.

Frieda Pinto has written an exclusive column about India’s Daughter, her take on the ban along with the need for uplifting and empowering women in today’s day and age. Check it out!
I recently visited my dear friend Zoë’s beautiful six-month-old-baby girl, Orla. When I looked into her big bright eyes, I saw a raw spark of pure light – alive, dancing to its own tune, full of potential, oblivious to skin color, status or gender.
But in more places around the world than we imagine, a newborn girlchild has has been damned, undervalued, called a burden, or even been killed before she was born. Because to be a female in today’s world is at best an exercise in subtle injustice or at worst a living hell.
In the film India’s Daughter you heard an educated lawyer claim that “in our culture there is no place for a woman. »

They may have split last year, but that doesn't mean that we don't still want Dev Patel and Freida Pinto to live happily ever after, together, right? The two broke hearts everywhere after revealing that they had parted ways after nearly six years together, shortly before the New Year last year. But it looks like the exes are on extremely friendly terms, as E! News just caught up with the Chappie actor at the red carpet premiere and he couldn't help but gush about his former leading lady. Patel joked that he's "not Hollywood" when asked how he's able to stay so civil with his ex, and added, "She's a wonderful human." His lovely words about Patel didn't »
Men might enjoy break-overs, too! Just months after splitting from his longtime girlfriend Freida Pinto, Dev Patel stepped out to attend the NYC premiere of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel—except, we almost didn't recognize him. The Slumdog Millionaire alum, 24, who's been rocking a clean-shaven look since he broke out with the film at age 16, appeared much more mature on the red carpet on Tuesday, March 3. Not only was he working grown-out locks, long enough to curl up at the nape of his neck, but [...] »
Dakota Fanning celebrated her 19th birthday this week and showed new maturity and sensuality in her latest photo spread for Vs magazine.

It's been more than six years since the release of Slumdog Millionaire—the film which catapulted Dev Patel to stardom. "People ask how hard it is to stay grounded. It's f--king easy," the 24-year-old British actor tells the U.K.'s Guardian, opening up about his rapid rise to fame. "Because you just do normal s--t like everyone else. My friend circle is very small, and that's a conscious choice." Patel also has ex-girlfriend Freida Pinto, whom he met on the set of the Danny Boyle-directed flick in 2008, to thank for his level-headed approach to Hollywood. Although the two split before the New Year, the former lovebirds remain close friends, and »
Freida Pinto turned host for her colleagues in Hollywood yet again at the Vanity Fair Pre-Oscar party which was held in La on Friday. During the most attended Pre Oscar weekend bashes, this was the second time she had hosted the event because of her special and committed connection to Girl Rising. As a celebration of cinema at the Oscars, Vanity Fair magazine and Freida decided to unite the fraternity with the magic of the movies. The occasion was also a platform to build awareness and benefit the cause of Freida's non profit production venture - Girl Rising - a movement centered around a film with stories of nine girls born into unforgiving circumstances. With some heavyweights in Bollywood now attached to the Indian version of the film and cause as ambassadors, Freida, as co producer, is also working towards creating a movement that will effectively action change.

Broad Green Pictures has acquired the U.S. rights to Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” as well as his untitled film which is currently in post-production. The deal marks the beginning of a creative partnership between Bgp and Malick’s team, effectively creating a collaborative home for the filmmaker. The announcement follows the news that Bgp and Malick will be teaming up on “Voyage of Time.” Christian Bale stars in “Knight of Cups” alongside Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Joel Kinnaman, Jason Clarke, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Antonio Banderas, Joe Manganiello and Nick Offerman.

From the Berlin International Film Festival, Adam Cook and Daniel Kasman continue our series of festival dialogues. Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups had its world premiere in the Berlinale's Competition.
Daniel Kasman: I must admit it's a bit difficult to begin speaking of this overwhelming film so immediately after seeing it, and especially in the atmosphere here in Berlin of almost immediate derision. I remember the boos that instantly followed the final shot of The Tree of Life's in Cannes and here I'd swear I felt that negative energy going into the giant Berlinale Palast, the anticipation of yet more Malick. Whatever that means. Few still describe well his method as a filmmaker, and whatever you may think of his last film, To the Wonder, it certainly revealed more about how Terrence Malick, a very unique filmmaker, thinks about cinema as a language, and how his cinema "works"—moves, »
Sneak Peek footage from writer/director Terrence Malick's new romantic fantasy drama "Knight of Cups" starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley and Imogen Poots:
"...a screenwriter living in Los Angeles tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him..."
The title of the film refers to the 'tarot' card of the same name, where 'Knight' is the face card, similar to a 'Jack', 'Queen', or 'King' and 'Cups' is the suit, roughly equating with the traditional suit, 'Hearts.

Terence Malick is possibly the only living director that I think has had a perfect career so far. Many directors have at least one stumbling block, and for many years I believed Malick’s brilliance was only because he rarely made a film. I still remember what a big deal The Thin Red Line was when it first came out. Nowadays though, the man is a lot more prolific, with Knight Of Cups being his third film in four years.
Being a man who once gave himself a 20 year hiatus, you can always count on Malick’s films to be considered almost necessary. His latest sees Christian Bale star as a screenwriter trying to make sense of the world around him with the title derived from a tarot card:
Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. »

Just hours after FilmNation held the world premiere of Knight of Cups at the Berlin Film Festival today, the studio has released the first poster from director Terrence Malick's upcoming drama. FilmNation has not announced a theatrical release date at this time, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we hear anything official from the studio.
Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick's (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth? Isabel Lucas, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, »
You go into a Terrence Malick movie expecting a gorgeous collage of sound and image, but not necessarily the sight of a neon-lit strip club, a Caesars Palace pool party, or a fashion shoot where a model is told to pose like “a dirty f—ing housewife.” In other words, there’s something at once vividly familiar and strikingly different about “Knight of Cups,” a feverish plunge into the toxic cloud of decadence swirling around a Los Angeles screenwriter gone to seed. Having made contemporary American life seem both recognizable and alien in “To the Wonder,” Malick now extends that film’s tender romantic ballet into a corrosive critique of Hollywood hedonism — a poisoned valentine to the industry by way of a Fellini-esque bacchanal. Those who have had their fill of the director’s impressionistic musings will find his seventh feature as empty as the lifestyle it puts on display; for the rest of us, »

Having had its premiere over the last weekend at the Berlin Film Festival, the first poster for Terrence Malick’s (Badlands, Tree of Life) new film Knight of Cups has now been revealed by FilmNation Entertainment…

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems »
