The FIFA World Cup might have finished cheering its winner but gear up to support an upcoming football match in Mumbai featuring some of Bollywood's coolest celebrities such as Abhishek Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Imran Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Tiger Shroff, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sohail Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Dino Morea, Nargis Fakhri and more...

"Trust In Goodness Inside" (TIGI) Foundation is behind the sporty initiative and will be raising funds to build a state-of-the-art animal shelter near Mumbai for abandoned animals. The match will take place at the Cooperage Football Ground on 20th July 2014. The latest buzz is that Salman Khan will also be attending the event.

 
Rewards will be given to contributors to the cause such as tickets to the football match, autographed DVDs or a chance to spend time with their favorite actors (clicking selfies, riding in a car, working out or being on a film set with them).

Listen to more details in the Bollywood Hungama video interview of organizer Ira Khan and her father, Aamir Khan below:

Anyone tuned into the world cinema scene and particularly Latin American cinema is surely familiar with Pablo Trapero's socially relevant films. Almost twenty years of his work have been applauded throughout the world, with films such as Rolling Family, Lion's Den, and White Elephant (featuring superstar Ricardo Darín). He was named President of the Un Certain Regard category at the Cannes Film Festival 2014. His newest project has taken him to Delhi and Mumbai to film the adaptation of Vikas Swarup's novel Six Suspects. Vikas Swarup is better known to literature lovers as the author of the book having inspired Slumdog Millionaire by Danny Boyle. The author read the script and expressed satisfaction with how the adaptation of his book was carried out.

 With summer having arrived, despite this blogger's busy schedule, time to watch films has become thankfully more available. Catching up on long-time unseen films, missing recent releases that are featured on my to-watch list, opening up my viewing experience to my first Tamil movie... This summer has it all.

All this viewing activity has left me with the conviction that I should blog about two films I watched this summer:

- Lootera by Vikramaditya Motwani, a recent film I had missed and had heard so much about. Definitely one of 2013's most acclaimed movies.
- Cukoo by Raju Murugan, very excited about watching my first Tamil film in a multiplex, where? In Paris pardi!
