The pair seemed to get on like a house on fire, as they laughed together, before taking notes from the film's director. It's important to note, however, some of the specifics of this living arrangement.

The 55-year-old editor of the Kannada weekly publication "Gauri Lankesh Patrike" was gunned down by unidentified men outside her home in Bengaluru's suburbs September 5.

Kavitha, a film-maker, told The Asian Age in an interview that Gauri was a liberal leftist, but soft-spoken just like their father, P Lankesh, and not aggressive on public platforms.

"When I say "I am Gauri", it means that we will not allow us to be silenced", he said.

A security guard walks past a placard installed at the Press Club of Kolkata in solidarity with Lankesh. "Who all will you target?" he asked. It will be launched by freedom fighter HS Doreswamy. "If I can fight for change at 99 years old, why can t you fight?" "If you freely voice your ideas, you may even get killed", she added.

Most speakers at the five-hour rally that included CPM secretary general Sitaram Yechury, activist Medha Patkar and Prashat Bhushan, pointed to the "celebratory" and "congratulatory" messages post on social media by BJP and Sangh Parivar activists upon the death and said it was an indicator of who the people behind the crime were.
