Pussy Riot
Three members of the Russian punk band, Pussy Riot, were sentenced to two years' imprisonment for their protest against President Vladimir Putin in a church. The girls had stormed the altar of Moscow's main cathedral in February to belt out a song deriding Putin.

The girl band has the support of a host of international celebrities including Madonna, Paul McCartney and Sting. success of film, which crossed the Rs 100-crore mark in record time, has led to Salman Khan becoming perhaps the most bankable star in Bollywood. This is the fourth Salman Khan movie to make it to the coveted Rs 100-crore club, reinforcing the axiom that bad boys can also be a good thing.
