MUMBAI — Bollywood actress has slammed the attitude of taking lives and chose some harsh words to express her feelings towards suicide.

It seems that actress Malini is somewhat irritated with TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s sensational suicide and the controversy blanketing the entire episode.

The Bollywood ‘Dreamgirl’ took to her Twitter and said “All these senseless suicides which achieve nothg! Life is God’s gift for us to live not for us to take at will. We have no right to do that”.

The actress in another tweet spoke about fighting such a situation with strength and bravery. “One must learn to overcome all odds & emerge successful, not succumb under pressure & give up easily. The world admires a fighter not a loser,” read her tweet.

“Just becomes food for the hungry media who chew on news like celebrity suicides until the next sensational news happens. Then it is forgotten,” she added.

‘Balika Vadhu’ famed Pratyusha Banerjee had committed suicide on April 1 on her own flat in a misterious condition.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
