Indian origin man busted in US for letting Tesla car autodrive from back seat

New York, May 14 (UiTV/IANS) - An Indian origin man who pulls off stunts to flaunt his wealth was arrested in California for letting his Tesla car illegally "autodrive", but as soon as he was let out he bought a new one and repeated the stunt, according to media reports.

The California Highway Patrol said it arrested him in the Silicon Valley on Tuesday and impounded his car after he was found letting the electric car drive by itself while sitting in the backseat in violation of laws that require a driver to be in the driver's seat in case of emergencies.

Sharma, 25, was kept overnight in jail and let go after being charged with reckless driving, according to the police.

Officials said that they had received several complaints from the public who had spotted a car like his being driven without anyone in the driver's seat.

Police had posted pictures of the car with an empty driver's seat and asked anyone spotting it to call them.

Sharma had himself posted on social media recordings of him letting the car go on "autopilot" while in the backseat.

Arif Zakaria: Digital format shooting allows more trial and error for filmmakers

Mumbai, May 18 (UITV/IANS)- Actor Arif Zakaria has been in the entertainment industry for over two decades and has witnessed a lot of subtle changes. He feels the current wave of OTT has ushered a lot of change, including the fact that a lot of filmmakers get to tell the story they want to.

"A lot of small, perceptive and real narratives are finding space on OTT. So much content that wouldn't have found theatres is now getting space. Being in the business for two decades I have been a witness to a lot of subtle changes in the industry," he told IANS.

While a lot has been for the better, there are changes that Arif fails to fathom. He says: "...
