Shrikant prepared for class 12 exams all by himself and after passing, went on to join a flight school in Madhya Pradesh.

- Hedi makes it to Berlin Film Festival: Tunisian film Hedi, set against the aftermath of Tunisia’s watershed revolution will kick off the competition at the Berlin film festival as the first Arab contender in two decades. The film is a narration of a love story set in the backdrop of the Arab Spring. While the movie makes certain references to the uprising, it focuses more on individual insecurities.
The Berlin Film Festival was opened by George Clooney with his wife Amal, a Lebanese-born human rights lawyer. Known for his goodness, Clooney offered to do his best for refugees who were seeking shelter in Europe. While he understands the plight of the asylum seekers, he also indicated that it will take time for Hollywood to make such subject films.
