former follows a stereotypical pattern of stories The director says there are people making attempts to come up with content-driven Hindi films as compared what is happening in mainstream “I wouldn’t call the cinema made in Mumbai as Bollywood That’s a different kind of cinema In Hindi cinema there are people making better films There are attempts being made” Adoor told PTI “But Bollywood cinema is a different world It is badly stereotyped It is like a mould where everything fits in” The 75-year-old director’s first film “Swayamvaram” in 1972 is credited to have started the ‘new wave’ cinema movement in Kerala Even in south the films have become commercially-driven feels Adoor “The audience is going towards films which have violence In Malayalam cinema it has become a commercial element with a lot of bloodshed killing and rowdyism That works There is an audience for that” The director says when he saw some of the films with high violent content he thought they wouldn’t work with the audience but he was proved wrong “In the past women would not turn up to see those films now it has changed I think it started with films like ‘Paruthiveeran’ and others Those films were so terribly violent that I thought they won’t work with the audience “But they did so well I thought there is something wrong with the audience A good society should never celebrate films like these” The filmmaker has returned to the big screen after a gap of eight years with romantic-drama “Pinneyum” which marks his 12th feature film The movie released this Friday brings the popular pairing of Malayalam cinema Dileep and Kavya Madhavan “It is a simple story It is romantic with love and family as a backdrop but it is not the typical running-around-the-trees romance… I knew I had an audience

France champion Chris Froome says he has “no issue” with his private medical records being leaked in a cyber attack by Russian hackers on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) A group known as APT28 and Fancy Bear by US cyber-security researchers released a second batch of data on Wednesday with the British cyclist among 25 athletes to have their Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) publicised “I’ve openly discussed my TUEs with the media and have no issues with the leak which only confirms my statements” said 2013 2015 and 2016 Tour winner Froome in a news release “In nine years as a professional I’ve twice required a TUE for exacerbated asthma the last time was in 2014” TUEs allow athletes to take banned substances to treat ongoing medical conditions Compatriot Bradley Wiggins who triumphed at the Tour in 2012 and last month landed a team pursuit gold to win a British record eighth Olympic Games medal was also on the list of 25 athletes The Fancy Bear website published Wiggins’ TUEs from 2008 2011 2012 and 2013 that all refer to asthma-related treatments The rider has yet to comment Cycling’s governing body the UCI joined the condemnation of the cyber attacks and defended the way it issued TUEs “The management of Therapeutic Use Exemptions in cycling is robust and fully safeguarded” the UCI said “The UCI TUE Committee (TUEC) is composed of independent experts in the fields of clinical sports and exercise medicine and the coordination of the Committee is handled by the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF) the independent body mandated by the UCI to carry out anti-doping in the sport “A TUE can only be granted if there is unanimity amongst the panel of three TUEC members” UK WARNING Britain’s anti-doping agency UKAD said it had written to its athletes to warn that their data may be at risk in the attack on WADA’s anti-doping administration and management system (ADAMS) via an International Olympic Committee-created account for last month’s Rio Games “UKAD strongly condemns actions of this nature and we are appalled that five members of Team GB have had their private data published illegally online” it said “Not only does it undermine our work and the protection of clean sport but it is grossly unfair to the athletes whose personal data has been put at risk “We are working hard with WADA to urgently determine what impact if any this may have on other British athletes and exactly what information may have been compromised” said UKAD British golfer Charley Hull was also victim of the latest leak as were 10 American athletes including swimmer Kathleen Baker and tennis player Bethanie Mattek Sands both gold medal winners at the Rio Games Twice Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic also had her TUEs published as did athletes from Germany Denmark Poland Romania and Russia On Tuesday Americans Simone Biles Elena Delle Donne and Serena and Venus Williams had details of their TUEs published by Fancy Bear WADA believes the attacks are being carried out in retaliation for the agency’s investigations that exposed state-sponsored sports doping in Russia The agency’s independent McLaren report released in July said Russians had swapped positive doping samples for clean ones during the 2014 Sochi Olympics with the support of the country’s secret service “We condemn this criminal activity and
