How hollywood inspires bollywood from time to time...

The poster of Murder 3 was 'inspired' from the movie Jennifer's body
Bollywood movies had been notorious in copying from hollywood and the rest of the world. Following the Bollywood traditions, our own film industry, often called Dhallywood, also chose this route. They can't even come up with a name for the industry itself.

Evolution is not limited to a living being
Evolution is the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. 

The law of conservation of energy states that the total amount of energy in a system remains constant ("is conserved"), although energy within the system can be changed from one form to another or transferred from one object to another. Hence obesity is not our fault at all. Blame physics for that.
