Protestors caused another disturbance on the Red Carpet of the 75th Cannes Film Festival on May 22. A group of black-clad ladies unfurled a poster and fired black smoke bombs while raising their hands in the air. The names on the poster are those of women assassinated by men in domestic abuse incidents in France. A spokesman for the film "Riposte Feministe" later claimed responsibility for the demonstration.
A Mumbai court passed an order in the domestic violence case filed by model-actor Rhea Pillai, against her former partner and tennis player Leander Paes. In addition, the court directed Paes to pay a monthly rent of Rs 50,000 and monthly maintenance of Rs 1 lakh to Pillai if the latter chooses to leave their residence. Notably, Pillai had approached the court in 2014 alleging domestic violence against Paes.
