Amber Heard feared her ex-husband Johnny Depp would accidentally kill her during an alleged assault on their honeymoon, a US court has heard. Testifying in a defamation case Mr Depp has brought against her, Ms Heard, 36, painted a picture of the actor as an abuser plagued by drug addiction, jealousy and self-harm. Mr Depp is suing Ms Heard for $50m (£40m) over an article in which she claimed she was the victim of domestic violence. He has repeatedly denied any abuse. The high profile case in Virginia has resumed for a fifth week after a pause, before which Mr Depp had told his side of the story and Ms Heard had begun some of her testimony. In court on Monday, Ms Heard tearfully told jurors that she believed she’d likely “not survive” if she had remained married to Mr Depp, 5

Nepali films get low priority from cinemas, but who is at fault anyway? Here’s a case in point

On May 6, along with Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness, two more Nepali films–Shatkon and Lakka Jawan–were released in the movie halls. Whereas Doctor Strange has been enjoying a lot of attention and business, the two Nepali films have not been that lucky. In fact, of the two, Shatkon has been removed from a majority of Nepali movie halls, after barely surviving its first weekend. A Nepali film to exit the halls in just three days of its release might sound quite regular. However, the fate of Shatkon, said to be in an experimental genre with some potential, has triggered questions about the low priority these films get from the cinemas. Amid the ongoing debate and even demand that movie halls should prioritise Nepali films, Shatkon can be a case in point that will
