Shah Rukh Khan’s useful tips on romance!

Shah Rukh Khan, who is considered Bollywood's unquestionable king of romance, had some valuable tips on romance to share on his recent visit to the capital.

Shah Rukh has featured in a string of romantic movies like "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", "Dil To Pagal Hai", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and "Kal Ho Naa Ho" in his over two-decade career in Hindi filmdom.

Here's what he had to say:
- Never disrespect a woman in words, action or spirit.
- You should always take care of small things like opening the door for a lady and never sit before she sits.
- Learn to be gentle with a woman.
- I never abuse in front of a woman and try not to be aggressive with a woman or even in front of her.

- A real man is one who can touch his feminity. I find my masculinity in the fact that I can touch my feminine side. 

If art provocates crimes against women , Ajanta-Ellora and "Kamasutra" must be banned, says Priyanka Chopra!

If art provocates crimes against women, historic sites like Ajanta-Ellora and Vatsayana's "Kamasutra" must be banned, tells Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who believes cinema is an "art" too and it should not be blamed for the rising crimes against women in the nation.

"I feel people are becoming less tolerant and more judgemental. Hindi films are meant for entertainment...If people think songs and films are causing an increase in rapes, why not first shut Ajanta-Ellora? We are a land of the 'Kamasutra'...let's ban books," told Priyanka.

"Sculpting is an art, poetry is an art, filmmaking is an art... We have the freedom of speech in our country, and we also have a system of film certification. Follow the law! If a film has been given the 'A' certificate, why let children go for it? There's lawlessness here. I feel a filmmaker should just make what he wants to," Priyanka told at the Agenda Aaj Tak conclave.

The portrayal of women in Hindi cinema and the viability of item songs is always questioned. She received an applause for speaking her mind out on the issue brought up every time that a rape case comes up.

But Priyanka, who backs girl child empwerment via diffferent campaigns, tells violation against women will only reduce when "laws will be implemented".

"We have strict laws now, but there's no implementation. There's fearlessness," told the actress, who has grooved to item songs like "Babli badmaash" and "Ram chahe leela".

"Film industry is for entertainment, like music and books. If they are fiction, they are fiction, they should not be taken so seriously. Any form of art must not be made responsible to change society. Films can't change the society, the government leads society and government has to implement laws to bring change," further added the former beauty queen.
