Ragini MMS-2 romantic song: Too hot for Censors

After the rip-roaring success of ‘Baby Doll’ and ‘Chaar Botal Vodka’, Sunny Leone’s tender love-making number in ‘Ragini MMS-2’, is set to create a new round of waves.

Being pegged as the hottest make-out number, ‘Maine Khud Ko’, rendered by Pakistani singer, Mustafa Zahid, was too hot for the Censors to handle.

The steamy sequences between Sunny Leone and debutant Sahil Prem had to be toned down for television, though a portion of the unrated version is out online.

It is believed that the video went through multiple rounds of changes lasting over a fortnight before the CBFC cleared it for broadcast.

“It is true that the song too long to censor. Several changes had to be made to the video to get it on to television,” confirms Tanuj Garg, CEO – Balaji Motion Pictures.

The good news is that the song will be seen in entirety in the film.

Dr. Sunita Dube requests & advices citizens to play safe Holi

Medscapeindia a unit of “Aryan Medical & Educational Trust” and its Chairperson Dr Sunita Dube requests Mumbaikers to play safe Holi with echo friendly color & save the water to protect environment. Celebrating Holi is changed in this modern era.

Unfortunately many wrong incidents have occurred during last few years like, some people were electrocuted, some had massive cardiac arrest due to exertion in drinking and dancing, at some places violence took place because of color and bonfire, some were drowned due to excess drinking, many get injured due to balloons throwing and colors used in form of synthetic and oil paint.

Whereas it should by enjoyed with exchanging embraces and wishing Happy Holi to all friends and foes, and by using organic colors and Eco-friendly colors which is not harm full.

Dr Sunita Dube advices some precaution to play safe Holi.

· Put sun block allover body before 20 min playing Holi Apply thick coating of paint on your nails- both in fingers and toes so that they remain protected.

· Oil your hair well, so that color doesn’t stick on your hair and can be washed off easily later.

· Cover your hair. Make use of hat or caps to protect your hair from being colored with hard-to-rinse dyes.

· Make sure that powder or any other product does not get inside your eyes. Eyes are extremely vulnerable on Holi because of their strategic place in body and also because of the use of harmful chemicals in colors these days. Please ensure that your eyes remain protected at all times. Use a sunglass to protect your eyes from a misfire of colour filled darts or water jets.

· Use dental caps to save your teeth from any unwanted stains.

Say goodbye to first signs of ageing with Juvederm Refine

Dr. Simal Soin, Dermatologist, New Delhi

Have you off late started taking note of the fine lines that have appeared on the corners of your eyes, or the wrinkles that become prominent around your mouth when you smile? If the first signs of ageing are worrying you, it’s perhaps time you get rid of them.

The search for the eternal ‘Fountain of Youth’ may lead to places and ideas never thought of before, but if you happen to visit a cosmetologist, chances are she may recommend you a dermal filler as a cosmetic fix.

Fine wrinkles around the eyes and smile lines around the lips may be the first indication that your age might be catching up with you as you silently undergo the stress of the daily regimen of life.However, you can now effectively push back those early signs with new age treatments that can replenish the skin and give you a renewed confidence of looking into the mirror.

Launched recently in India by the makers of Botox, Allergan’s Juvederm Refine is the latest kid on the bloc in the anti-ageing treatment segment. An injectable therapy, it is a hyaluronic acid based product that works to replenish your skin and reduces fine lines the natural way.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring biodegradable complex sugar found in the human body which adds volume and hydrates the skin by enhancing the skin’s moisture retention capability. As skin ages, it loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid, a primary reason for the appearance of wrinkles. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid revives the skin by producing the same effect as natural hyaluronic acid would.

There has been a shift in people’s perception of beauty and there is more willingness to get their looks enhanced with the help of cosmetic fixes as seen among women. The availability of products that can visibly reduce the signs of ageing has given women of today remarkable options in skin treatment. The hyaluronic acid based fillers are an option women are actively using today. These are really fast to administer and their results last for quite some time.

Experts say Juvederm Refine, the fourth in the series of Juvederm fillers is best suited to undo the early signs of ageing as it is designed to be injected in the upper layers of the skin to work on fine and superficial lines. So, relatively younger women, who are in their early 30’s or even those in their late 20’s can use it to cut down their years and get that flawless look.

A scar-less and brief procedure, experts say Juvederm Refine dermal filler works wonders on finer lines like Crows feet that appear around the corners of your eyes, Accordion lines or large smile lines, as well as Forehead lines that require very superficial injections. Its effect lasts for as long as six months.

Juvederm Refine is also good for reducing fine lines on hands, and the tear trough – the dark circles that appear around the eyes. It is designed to work in the superficial layers of the dermis and is hence also suitable for relatively younger women, who have just started getting those fine line.

So, stop worrying about your early signs of ageing. Go ahead and get rid of them.
