5G slap .............. Juhi, who ?!?

By any chance, does anyone remember movie - Nattukku Oru Nallavan and its cast ??

Juhi Chawla won the  1984 Miss India beauty pageant, established herself as one of the leading actresses of Hindi cinema from the late 1980s  Chawla has been married to industrialist Jay Mehta since 1995.  Along with her husband and Shah Rukh Khan, she is the co-owner of the Indian Premier League cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders. Along with Khan, she was the founder of the production company Dreamz Unlimited, which produced three films. 

5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard that would enable  a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. 5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency empower new user experiences and connects new industries.

First generation  in 1980s was only Analog voice; 2G introduced digital voice (CDMA)  3G brought in mobile data, 4G was LTE and 5 is set to   provide more connectivity than was ever available before. 5G is a unified, more capable air interface. It has been designed with an extended capacity to enable next-generation user experiences, empower new deployment models and deliver new services. In telecommunications, 5G is the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks, which cellular phone companies began deploying worldwide in 2019, and is the planned successor to the 4G networks which provide connectivity to most current cellphones. The main advantage of the new networks is that they will have greater bandwidth, giving higher download speeds, eventually up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbit/s). 

5G technology in India is on the cusp of bringing a connectivity revolution. As its implementation gains momentum, concerns around its use have been raised time and again, pointing out the possible harm that 5G networks can have on citizens, animals, flora and fauna. The latest one to rekindle the debate in the country was  the suit filed by actress Juhi Chawla in the Delhi High Court against the setting up of 5G wireless networks in the country.

Today comes the news that her  petition against the rollout of 5G in the country was thrown out today by the Delhi High Court, which said in very stern remarks that the lawsuit was apparently "for publicity". "The suit is dismissed. Plaintiffs abused the process of law. Costs of  Rs.20 lakh is imposed on plaintiffs," the court said, directing Juhi Chawla and others to deposit court fees.

The court also ordered action against people who interrupted a virtual hearing on Wednesday using a link the actor had shared on social media and sang songs from her films. "It appears the suit was for publicity. Juhi Chawla circulated a link of the hearing on social media," the High Court said, asking the Delhi Police to identify and take action against the rogue singers.

When Juhi Chawla's lawyer Deepak Khosla asked for the order to be put on hold, arguing that the costs were without any legal basis, the court snapped: "The matter is over. You have your legal remedies. Counsel should know his limits."

On Wednesday, the High Court's virtual hearing was repeatedly interrupted by fans who logged on and sang hits from Juhi Chawla's movies, infuriating the judge. The Bollywood actor had, oddly, shared the link for the court hearing on Twitter and Instagram, inviting people to join in. When the hearing started, someone started singing the song ''Ghoonghat ki aad se" from Juhi Chawla's 1993 movie "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke". "Please mute," said Judge JR Midha the first time. A little later, he ordered another singer removed from the hearing. When it happened the third time, the judge directed that the person be identified and a contempt notice be issued.

The lawsuit by Juhi Chawla, Veeresh Malik and Teena Vachani said if the telecom industry's plans for 5G became a reality, it would cause irreversible damage to the environment and "no person, animal, bird, insect and plant on earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to radiation 10x to 100x times greater than what exists today."  ~  theme downloaded from 2.O perhaps !!!

Nattukku Oru Nallavan   written, produced and directed by V. Ravichandran and also produced by N. Veersamai was released in 1991 . The film starred Rajinikanth, Juhi Chawla, V. Ravichandran, Anant Nag and Khusbhu. The film was simultaneously shot in Hindi as Shanti Kranti with a slightly different cast.  The film marked the debut of popular Kannada actor Anant Nag in Tamil cinema as main antagonist. The music was composed by Hamsalekha. The film was simultaneously released in Kannada and Telugu under the Shanti Kranti title in 1991. Akkineni Nagarjuna was the lead in Shanti Kranti Telugu version & V. Ravichandran was the lead in Shanti Kranti Kannada version, while Rajinikanth was in the lead in the Tamil and Hindi version. Incidentally, all the versions failed at the box-office and Ravichandran incurred huge losses.
