By Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares pulled back from this week's three-year highs on Friday after a mostly flat day on Wall Street, though a fresh S&P closing record and upbeat U.S. employment data underpinned sentiment. "The German Ifo current assessment index and expectations index are both expected to decline, which could weaken euro/dollar," said Marshall Gittler, global head of FX strategy at IronFX Global. "The Ifo index is in contrast to Thursday's positive PMI figures, perhaps because the Ifo incorporates more recent data on the impact that sanctions on Russia are likely to have on the German economy," Gittler said in a note to clients. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down about 0.3 percent, though still on track for solid weekly gain of more than 1 percent.

- July 24 2014 23:22: Ex-investment banker turns to Bollywood script writing - Entertainment News Headlines — Yahoo! News
An Indian investment banker turned wildly successful novelist is taking a career turn in Bollywood, with a screenplay he says will tackle social issues in the same vein as the books that made him a youth icon. Chetan Bhagat shot to fame with his coming-of-age tale "Five Point Someone" in 2004 -- written at night while he kept up his financial day job -- which became a huge commercial hit and spawned a raft of Indian campus novels. Four of Bhagat's books have already been adapted into movies, but "Kick", an action-thriller released on Friday and starring Bollywood headliner Salman Khan, is the first screenplay he has written that is not based on his previous work.
