  1. After a gruelling tour of South Africa, the Indian cricket team gave rest to multiple senior players and presented an opportunity for young guns to prove their mettle in the Nidahas T20 Tri-series in Sri Lanka. With Team India fielding a second-string side, the likes of Washington Sundar, Rishabh Pant and Vijay Shankar were seen donning the iconic blue jersey. While Sundar undeniably emerged as one of the finds of the tournament with his majestic spin bowling, Shankar and Pant didn't really have a good series. While Pant lost his spot to KL Rahul after featuring in a few games, Shankar did get more opportunities but couldn't really impress. In fact, if the Nidahas Trophy final between India and Bangladesh is anything to go by, it's safe to say that Shankar would surely want to forget what had happened before Dinesh Karthik got their team over the line with a last-ball six. Dinesh Karthik after saving Vijay Shankar's career. #INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/cd5Uj87qjx — SAGAR (@sagarcasm) March 18, 2018 For a man who was replacing Hardik Pandya as an all-rounder in the Indian side, Shankar finished the tournament with three wickets at an average of 51 and economy of nine alongside 17 runs with the willow. In Sunday's final, the 27-year-old proved to be the most expensive Indian bowler with figures of 0-48 in four overs. A batting all-rounder who fared reasonably well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy, showcasing his hitting prowess with quite a few crucial cameos laced with sixes; Shankar was far from being at his prolific best with the willow at the Premadasa stadium. The right-hander, who was sent ahead of much-experienced Karthik, failed to justify his promotion. The fact that he had not faced a single delivery at the international level before this game was reflective in his low-on-confidence batting display. With India requiring 35 runs off 18 balls, Shankar struggled to connect, and only managed a leg-bye on the penultimate ball. The pressure created from Shankar's dot balls eventually resulted in Manish Pandey holing out to long-on on the last ball.

With India needed 12 runs off the last over, struggling Shankar managed a boundary but played two dot balls, including the penultimate delivery where he got out, leaving Karthik with five to get off the last ball. His forgetful batting debut had already made him subject of immense criticism, and while Karthik's heroics sealed the game for India and saved Shankar the blushes, it still couldn't stop the Indian fans from trolling him on the social media.

  2. Russia has promised to look after Arsenal fans when the Gunners play CSKA Moscow MOSCOW: Russia has issued a security guarantee to Arsenal fans who will visit Moscow for a Europa League clash in the heat of a diplomatic crisis over an ex-double agent´s poisoning. Moscow on Saturday announced the expulsion of 23 British diplomats in a tit-for-tar response to London´s "provocative" measures over the nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England. Britain issued a travel warning to people in or planning to travel to Russia after expelling the same number of Moscow diplomats on Wednesday. And Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Friday said it was "overwhelmingly likely" that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered the attack. The Kremlin called his comments "shocking and unforgivable". All of which has left Arsenal fans alarmed about the prospects of playing CSKA in Moscow on April 12 for the second leg of their Europe League quarter-final. One Arsenal supporters´ group called it "a hot potato of a draw in view of the political stand-off". The club itself re-posted on its website a Foreign Office travel advisory warning of possible "anti-British sentiment or harassment". Russia´s World Cup organising committee chief Alexei Sorokin expressed disappointment about the tensions and said Arsenal fans have nothing to fear. "It is a shame that the games will be played in such circumstance," said Sorokin, who is also a senior member of the Russian Football Union. "We will ensure security in equal measures to all -- from dignitaries to fans," Sorokin told TASS. Russia to expel 23 British diplomats: foreign ministry '23 diplomatic staff at British embassy in Moscow are declared persona non grata and to be expelled within a week' But he also expressed a hint of annoyance at Arsenal´s decision to put up the Foreign Office travel advisory after Friday´s Europa League draw. "To us, there is no difference which country people come from or what our diplomatic relations with them are," he said. "There are absolutely no grounds for such warnings." Sorokin has been fighting an uphill battle to clean up Russia´s image ahead of its first World Cup at home. The June 14 to July 15 tournament has been associated closely with Vladimir Putin ever since the Russian strongman wrested the hosting rights away from England in 2010. Organisers are keen to resolve all the controversies and the poisoning case does not help. Preparations have already been shadowed by concerns ranging from racism to hooliganism and doping that saw Russia perform at the Pyeongchang Winter Games under a neutral Olympic flag. British Prime Minister Theresa May decided to give the World Cup itself a snub by announcing that royals and ministers would not be attending. A boycott by the England team is thought unlikely despite wide-ranging speculations about it in the media and support from some British MPs.
  3. Chris Brown (left) and Rihanna. Photo: File LOS ANGELES: Pop star Rihanna urged fans on Thursday to delete Snapchat after the social media app ran an ad making fun of her 2009 beating at the hands of then-boyfriend Chris Brown. Shares of Snap Inc, the company that makes the app, were down 4.7 per cent in trading on Thursday. ?SNAPCHAT I know you know you ain?t my fav app out there! But I?m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!,? the singer wrote on Instagram on Thursday. ?You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!!,? she added, referring to domestic violence. ?Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away.? The ?Wild Thoughts? singer, 30, was speaking out after Snapchat earlier this week apologised and took down an advert on its platform for a mobile video game called ?Would You Rather!? The ad showed pictures of Rihanna and Brown with the captions ?Slap Rihanna? and ?Punch Chris Brown.? Both the ad and the game were unaffiliated with Snapchat. R&B singer Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009 in an incident that made headlines around the world when a photo of her bruised face was released. Snapchat on Thursday said the ad was ?disgusting and never should have appeared on our service.? ?We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again,? the company said in a statement. Rihanna?s comments were the latest bad press for Snapchat. Its shares lost about $1.5 billion in market value in February after social media celebrity Kylie Jenner, who has as many as 105 million Instagram followers, tweeted that she did not like the Snapchat site?s redesign. Dozens of fans on Thursday tweeted that they were following Rihanna?s call to delete the Snapchat app. ?Rihanna let them KNOW. RIP SNAPCHAT,? tweeted a user with the Twitter handle @loveonthebrain. ?y?all thought kylie killed snapchat, but rihanna dragged it to the grave! RIP september 2011-march 2018,? tweeted a user called cozy spice.
  4. While the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is slated to begin with much fanfare next month, another Twenty20 tournament is stealing the limelight, for all the wrong reasons. The Pakistan Super League (PSL) had already witnessed a lot of backlash after pictures of half-empty stadiums went viral on the social media, but on Wednesday the tourney witnessed a new low - thanks to the tempers flaring between a couple of players. Adding to the ongoing drama, Quetta Gladiators were engrossed in a tense battle with Lahore Qalandars who were breezing to victory when the incident occurred. In the final stages of the game, Gladiators bowler Sohail Khan found himself struggling to get the attention of fellow teammate Yasir Shah on the field. Sohail Khan decides if the fielder Yasir Shah won't stand where he wants him to he will just throw the ball at him #PSL2018 #LQvQG pic.twitter.com/8G6C4k5JH1 — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) March 14, 2018 Frustrated by his inability to make contact with Shah at the boundary ropes, Sohail lost his cool and ended up throwing the ball at him. The ball missed the Pakistani leg-spinner's head by a close margin which only infuriated him to give a strong reply. Shah picked the ball and threw it back towards the bowler while the other cricketers and fans were trying to make sense of their antics. The two Pakistani cricketers were later involved in a heated exchange before their captain Brendon McCullum interfered and defused the tension. I think I witnessed the funniest moment of my cricket career tonight, when the bowler couldn't get the attention of his boundary rider & threw the ball at him on the boundary... UNBELIEVABLY HILARIOUS! ððððððððððð — Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) March 14, 2018 The video of the entire episode has taken the social media by storm with Gladiators batsman Kevin Pietersen terming it as the 'funniest moment' of his cricket career. I think I witnessed the funniest moment of my cricket career tonight, when the bowler couldn't get the attention of his boundary rider & threw the ball at him on the boundary...UNBELIEVABLY HILARIOUS!," he tweeted. Here's how cricket fans reacted to the hilarious incident: Hahahahahaha. Yasir pagal hogya hai.

  5. After following fake accounts of Aamir Khan on Instagram for months, I now have a reason to rejoice because the Bollywood perfectionist has officially joined the Instagram family. For those scratching their heads wondering about the account they were following until now, sorry to burst your bubble; but Aamir Khan was officially only on Facebook and Twitter before this. If you too had this happy realization today after you saw his account, trust me you are not alone. We have proof that he has officially joined Instagram. First, is the blue tick that pops up right when I type his official username. And second, is the fact that within a few hours he had over 230k followers already, even without posting a single picture. That's the charm or should we say response the 'Dangal' star commands. Instagram Aamir Khan truly gave a big surprise to all his fans and friends and there couldn't have been a better day for him to join Instagram than his birthday. Yes, the birthday boy turned 53 today. In fact, Aamir made his Instagram debut by paying a tribute to the most special woman in his life - his mother. Aamir Khan is currently gearing up for his upcoming releasing 'Thugs of Hindostan' and we can't wait for him to post videos and behind-the-scene clips from the movie on his Instagram account.
  6. Actor Eddie Redmayne attends the premiere of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' in Manhattan, New York, U.S., November 10, 2016. REUTERS/Andrew Kelly LOS ANGELES: The second of the Fantastic Beasts movie spinoffs from author J.K. Rowling includes scenes set in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, directly connecting the story to the best-selling Harry Potter books and films, a first movie trailer on Tuesday showed. The trailer for Warner Bros? Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald ? to be released in November ? also gave fans a first glimpse of actor Jude Law as a dapper, bearded, young version of Hogwarts? venerable headmaster Albus Dumbledore, and featured parts of the famous Harry Potter music score. The Harry Potter spinoff, which will eventually include five movies, is set some 70 years before Harry Potter went to the British boarding school and learned to become a wizard. The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer was the first to show Hogwarts as part of the Fantastic Beasts story, which centres around Newt Scamander, a ?magizoologist? with a suitcase full of strange creatures. ?omg Hogwarts!! Dumbledore!! The Harry Potter Theme!! the chills!! the tears!! the memories!! sooooo hyped!!,? wrote one fan, Hunter, on YouTube after watching the trailer. ?Omg... I was dying... Like Hogwarts is magical... I can?t even express to you how happy I am that we?re going to be seeing that beautiful castle again?,? commented Dhanya Binoy, another excited fan. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ? the first movie that was written by Rowling ? made $814 million at the global box offices after it was released in November 2016. Rowling has said she thinks of the younger Dumbledore as a gay man who fell in love with Gellert Grindelwald, who later turned out to be evil and violent. In the trailer, Dumbledore is shown in a Hogwarts classroom, and later telling actor Eddie Redmayne?s Scamander: ?I can?t move against Grindelwald. It has to be you.? The movie also gives fans a glimpse of Johnny Depp as a pale, long-haired, dishevelled Grindelwald, the character who embodies the dark forces in both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies. The eight Harry Potter movies made $7 billion at the global box office. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released on November 16, 2018.
  7. Thirteen points adrift from Premier League leaders and arch-rivals City, Manchester United strengthened their position to finish second this season with an emphatic 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday. There were some serious doubts over United's ability to contain the fast-paced attacking play of the Kops, but in the end, the Red Devils achieved the impossible through Marcus Rashford's brace at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho's particular style of man management does not suit all tastes, nor is it always successful. But, when the right technique is used on the right player, it can inspire the perfect response - the one that propelled them to a five-point lead on the second spot over the weekend. © Twitter The victory over the Reds undoubtedly restored the faith of Man Utd fans in their controversial manager and also served as a reminder for their rivals - other than neighbours Man City - that they are still the second-best team in the league. However, all their hardwork and efforts eventually went in vain after pictures of Marouane Fellaini's abhorrent photoshoot surfaced on the social media. © Twitter Posing for a magazine photoshoot, the United midfielder - whose trademark afro has already served great purpose for hilarious memes - experimented with some extreme looks for their spring summer issue. © Twitter In another photo, Fellaini looked no different than Coronation Street character Hilda Ogden as he donned a headscarf and had his frizzy locks pulled. Apart from the photoshoot, Fellaini also gave an interview on the sidelines where he discussed his reputation for being overly aggressive, his manager Mourinho and his country Belgium's chances at the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia. But, it appears that no one is interested in what he had to say, as the football fanatics across the globe took turns to troll United and their controversial player.

  8. Fielding a fairly new-look side amid the absence of prominent names like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket got off to a worst possible start in the Nidahas Trophy under the tutelage of Rohit Sharma when they lost the tournament opener by five wickets against hosts Sri Lanka. The Men in Blue did stage a comeback in the second match, defeating the likes of Bangladesh by six wickets in Colombo. And, on 12 March, with revenge in their eyes, the Indian team once again locked horns with the Lankans with a desperate need to settle the old score. Source: Twitter - BCCI It's needless to say that Lanka in its own backyard is fairly competitive and hard to overcome. Thus, Team India needed individual brilliance in all facets of the game to overwhelm Thisara Perera's men. Electing to field first in a rain-curtailed tie, India knew they had to bowl and field well in a bid to restrict their opponents and stay in contention of registering a win. However, the start was far from what India needed or their fans expected. The likes of Shardul Thakur and Washington Sundar were taken to the cleaners by Lankan openers who amassed 24 runs in the first two overs of the innings. With pressure mounting on them, Team India needed a moment of brilliance to get a breakthrough which eventually came through Suresh Raina. What a catch by Suresh Raina...ð± @ImRaina rocks... Mind blowing, fantastic, superbð¤ð#SLvIND #INDvsSL pic.twitter.com/ZlEdRKU8cO — Vikash Gupta (@DigitalBaniya) March 12, 2018 In the third over, Danushka Gunathilaka was looking to deposit Thakur's delivery deep into the stands when he failed to get enough elevation in his shot. While many believed that the ball would eventually reach the ropes for a boundary, Raina flung himself to the left and plucked the ball out of thin air at midwicket, despite being slighty off balance. For a man who dropped an absolute sitter against Bangladesh in the previous game, Raina seemingly found a way to redeem himself with a pouching stunner. His brilliant effort didn't just attract plaudits on the social media, but also silenced the home fans.

They will now take on Bangladesh in the fifth match of the tournament on 14 March.
  9. Iron Man has been more than just a superhero to his fans, as he is also a major source of inspiration. Maybe it wasn't just the comics that made us love this Marvel character, but more than that it was Robert Downey Jr who totally nailed the role with his spot-on sense of humor, action, and dialogues. With Iron Man already being one of the most loved superheroes, his fans are totally in for a surprise today. Marvel has finally announced the release of new Iron Man comic entitled 'Tony Stark: Iron Man', and we are totally excited! © Marvel Artist Valerio Schiti and Author Dan Slott have collaborated for this. Talking about this new work, Slott told Nerdist that in the new comic Stark's character will reflect today's work where the lines of science are being pushed and challenged almost on daily basis. "He wasn't bitten by a radioactive spider. He took his own two hands and built everything he needs. He's always going to push the boundaries of science and tech to build a world he wants, and that's going to lead to stories that go to insane places.” said Slott. © Marvel What's even more interesting about this new comic is how artist Schiti shared that he was inspired by 'Transformer', 'Ghost in the Shell' and 'Gundam' when it came to animation work. And also how the 'Iron Man' franchise influenced his thinking. Talking about it he said, “In the movies, Tony Stark creates and collects his armor in his garage, like some sort of petrolhead. So I immediately looked for race cars. But then I thought: why just cars? So now I have hundreds of images of planes, boats, spaceships, factory robots, prototypes... my Pinterest folders are exploding!" © Marvel For Schiti this feels like heaven and we totally understand why. "To do new designs is one of my favourite things in comics, and here I have the chance to play with such an iconic character, to try different styles, to use classic suits, and to create new and extraordinary armors,” he added. Iron Man was originally created by Marvel doyen Stan Lee but ultimately, the premiere issue was written by Larry Lieber as Lee was busy with another deadline. Lee actually wanted to create a character who fans would dislike but eventually, Iron Man become the most popular character. Later the series was turned into a film featuring Robert Downey Jr and we don't need to tell you how successful the film was both at the box office and among the viewers. © Marvel For fans, who haven't read the previous comics and have just followed the film, the best part is that Iron Man will have all the elements from the entire book series, and those fans still unfamiliar with it will be able to connect with the story without having to worry about reading the previous issues. Now ain't that pretty amazing?
  10. Barring Sachin Tendulkar, no other cricketer from India comes even close to the kind of popularity and fanbase Mahendra Singh Dhoni has enjoyed over the years. Coming from the cricketing backwaters - the mining state of Jharkhand, Dhoni's home-made batting and wicket-keeping technique, and a style of captaincy that scales the highs and lows of both conservatism and unorthodoxy have undoubtedly propelled him to the pinnacle of the sport. While his marauding stroke-play adds teeth to the Indian middle-order, Dhoni's lightening-quick glovework makes him a nemesis for the opposition batsmen. When it comes to his leadership skills, the fact that India have swept the top honours in all formats - the No. 1 Test ranking for 18 months (starting December 2009), the ICC World Cup in 2011 and the World T20 on his captaincy debut in 2007 - puts him high in the list of the country's most successful captains. © BCCL Though his exploits on the field and cricketing skills are enough to make him a fan-favourite, Dhoni's sense of style and especially his unique hairdos have been a huge hit with the spectators. The Jharkhand cricketer burst on to the international scene with long hair and then, immediately after winning the 2007 World T20, he shaved his head. Since then, Dhoni has sported almost all kinds of haircuts. He was seen donning a mohawk during the IPL, while his buzzcut rapidly became a popular choice for his fans. Amongst all the hairdos he has ever had, his iconic long-haired look has always stood out. So much so that former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf once told Dhoni not to cut his hair. © YouTube Today, Dhoni is no longer the Indian captain and his long hair paved way for a more mature look. But, in a welcoming surprise to his fans, Dhoni turned back the clock by sporting the long-haired look for a television commercial. . Who wore the skirt better? With my main man @mahi7781 . .

  11. A sensational batsman, fearless leader and great human being; Virat Kohli has the ability to woo fans like no other in international cricket. His consistency with the willow saw him clobber one record after another, while his leadership skill in the role of captain has allowed the Indian cricket team to scale new heights. On the back of an aggressive brand of cricket, Kohli has become a prized-possession for India that other teams can only dream of. Thanks to his success on the field and stylish personality off it, the 29-year-old has established a fanbase across the globe. While Indians take pride in the fact that he is one of their own, neighbouring rivals Pakistan, too, has taken note of Kohli's prowess. © BCCL During the Pakistan Super League (PSL) clash between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators, the fans were once again seen ruing the absence of Kohli in the T20 league. With playful placards and touching messages, the Pakistani cricket fans urged the Indian skipper to join one of the franchises and feature in the PSL.

Last year, during the World XI series, when international cricket finally returned to Pakistan after overcoming security concerns, the fans were seen flashing the posters of Kohli and expressed their desire to see him play in their country. @imVkohli.we miss u in lahore virat kohli.y u not comeee? — Imran rajput (@Imranra31593414) September 11, 2017 Aaja o tenu akhiyan udeek diyan @imVkohli — Moiz.

  12. Shah Rukh Khan is an icon for some, a legend for many and an idol for the youth. The superstar, after all, is known as 'King Khan' for a reason. Switzerland main aake yeh na kiya toh kya kiya...?!

Recently he tweeted a personal thought about life in general and his fans decided to draw a wonderful perception around it. How can one not just feel love & beauty & be grateful for a life that became a part of yours in some small way by making it prettier....isn't it just easier to feel love & give towards that life, even in death...the comfort of appreciation and gratitude. — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 28, 2018 His fans are now urging him to quit smoking, because they want him to live a longer and healthier life.

  13. When it comes to cricket, there will always be the debate of India vs Pakistan, no matter what the topic is. The on-field rivalry extends to off-field trolling and it's nothing short of entertaining, almost as entertaining as an actual match. Indian Premier League, which has been going on for years, attracts audience from all over the world – even Mick Jagger is a fan and watches the matches religiously. On the other side, we have Pakistan Super League with its third edition in Dubai that is going on at the moment. Ever since the series started, cricket fans have been engaged in some harmless trolling on Twitter, and it has been hilarious. Recently, Indians noticed something a little off about the PSL matches – the stadiums where the matches are held seemed to be quite empty, especially compared to IPL matches and the hundreds and thousands of people they attract. Okay, in all fairness, the league is being held in Dubai, there would definitely be more people there if it was happening in Pakistan itself. But, this was enough for Indians to go to any lengths to troll the hell out of PSL, but it's all in good fun. Everyone appreciates a good meme and jokes are the only things that unite us, right? From poking fun at the stadiums to the PSL trophy, nothing was spared, not even the cheerleaders. Well, look at the silver lining. - PSL is the only league where everyone in the stadium gets to be on camera at least once. — Uß ðµð° (@_Biryanified) February 26, 2018 Oops. **Students making noise in class** Teachers In Other countries : Pin drop silence.

  14. When India and Pakistan play cricket on the ground, the entire world is divided and waits with bated breath. The adrenaline touches the sky and there is no way to measure the level of excitement that spices up the air in every household. While sportsmanship on the cricket ground is a great factor, and all cricketers of both the teams enjoy the love of their respective fans, Shahid Afridi is one cricketer who often makes it to the headlines due to some reason. Breaking all barriers,crossing all boundaries for love & peace & humanity. ThankU harbhajan3 for supporting @SAFoundationN #HopeNotOut A post shared by Shahid Afridi (@safridiofficial) on Oct 26, 2017 at 6:21am PDT Contrary to popular belief, Shahid Afridi enjoys a lot of love from Indian fans as well. Recently while he was in Switzerland for an ice cricket match which was being played between his team and Virender Sehwag's team, Afridi was spotted obliging fans with selfies and autographs. However, one video has gone viral which is making everyone respect the player even more. Afridi was asked by an Indian fan to get clicked while she was holding the Indian flag. Afridi realised that she wasn't holding the flag how it's supposed to be held, so he was quick to politely reprimand her and asked her 'flag seedha karo apna'. Thank u Switzerland ð A post shared by Shahid Afridi (@safridiofficial) on Feb 9, 2018 at 7:56am PST As soon as the video made its debut on social media, people started paying respect to Afridi for this wonderful gesture. Want to Show that Indians too are his huge fans — Shakirsalam (@Shakirsalam7) February 10, 2018 Thank you for this gesture boom boom afridi...loads of love â¤ï¸ from India ð®ð³ — ð®ð³Aman Pandeyð®ð³ (@_iamanpandey) February 10, 2018 It is just refreshing to see that people from both the countries are just bonding over a respectful gesture and for a change, no is calling him out. Twiterrati only has love to offer. Sportsperson r always above others. They know what a flag means. Shahid Afridi does my win hearts of Indians despite hitting Indian bowlers outside stadia but also with his sportsman spirit. — Bhola Nath, IG (Retd) (@BholaNath_BSF) February 10, 2018 Such a nice gesture. Hats off to @SAfridiOfficial Bhai ð — Abhijeet (@abhic4ever) February 10, 2018 Shahid Afridi clearly took the cake back home. His team won the match and Afridi won all the Indian hearts as well, so I guess no one is complaining about Sehwag's team losing.
  15. When he first tried on his black spandex suit in 2016 for 'Captain America: Civil War', little did he know that his relationship with his suit will soon turn into a long-lasting affair. A relationship that he will commemorate and celebrate for the rest of his life. © Marvel It happened last year when the news about a stand-alone film featuring Chadwick Boseman as the 'Black Panther' in the Marvel Cinematic Universe made headlines. Not many could believe that this was finally happening and it was enough to create a stir in the town. Well, while many fans were excited, it was Chadwick who was living the dream. Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is one of the most talked super-hero films in the tinsel town and Marvel fans look forward to the release to this long-awaited tentpole which is all set to hit the screen on 16th February. © MensXP/PriyadarshiniPatwa While the trailer has received a great response, MensXP attended the Black Panther red carpet at Seoul, South Korea and talked to the leading man himself about his experience of donning the black-suit. “This is one of the most amazing experiences I ever had with the film, its cast, the script that we had. I know everyone is going to enjoy this film,” shared Chadwick talking to us. A small conversation with him and you just know that he is the right choice for the role after all.

Here's him talking about his experience shooting with @Marvel pic.twitter.com/kKMKhVsogP — MensXP (@MensXP) February 6, 2018 When asked about how to land a superhero role, the man simply said, “To be a superhero, work hard and play hard, that's the thing.” Before heading for the red carpet, we asked him to give a message to his Indian fans and in one go he happily said, “Namaste India. Just enjoy the movie, I hope you love it, we have put our whole heart and soul for you. I hope I can come and see you all soon.” Here's @ChadwickBoseman with a special message for his Indian fans. #BlackPanther @Marvel_India pic.twitter.com/SBsaCV8zgt — MensXP (@MensXP) February 6, 2018 Now ain't that really something? Well, we got to agree; the man is as amazing off-screen as he looks on-screen and loves to laugh as much as possible.
  16. Fans set off fireworks while celebrating the Philadelphia Superbowl LII victory over the New England Patriots in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania The Philadelphia Eagles´ first Super Bowl victory set off rowdy celebrations in Philadelphia as people who poured into the streets set at least one fire and damaged property early on Monday, images on social media showed. Joyous football fans burst into jubilation in gatherings at bars and took their party into the streets, jumping up and down, setting off pyrotechnics and singing the fight song "Fly Eagles Fly." Some went further and ignited a fire in the middle of a street that firefighters soon extinguished. Other images showed a light pole tipping over and the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News website Philly.com reported smashed windows and toppled awnings. Police in riot gear and on bicycles formed lines to control crowds and push people back, social media images showed. Fans celebrate the Philadelphia Superbowl LII victory over the New England Patriots Some people broke a display window at a department store near City Hall, and looters broke into a convenience store, grabbing merchandise and screaming, "Everything is free," Philly.com reported. Nearly all the light poles on one side of City Hall were toppled, and a car outside a hotel was tipped on its side, Philly.com said. Philadelphia police and fire officials did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for information. The Eagles, coming into the game as underdogs, defeated the five-time National Football League champion New England Patriots 41-33 in Minneapolis on Sunday. In Boston, local media reported somber Patriots fans spilling out of local bars and heading home in the cold winter drizzle as temperatures dipped into the 30s (Fahrenheit). Eagles stun Patriots to win maiden Super Bowl title Philadelphia Eagles upset New England Patriots 41-33 to win Super Bowl "We haven´t had a single incident, thank God," said a Boston police dispatcher. Over in Amherst, Ma., State and University of Massachusetts police had more trouble as about 2,000 people flooded the streets near UMass Amherst and began throwing objects, setting off smoke bombs, fireworks and starting fistfights. The Boston Globe reported a number of injuries and that at least six people were arrested as police used pepper spray to disperse the angry fans.
  17. Let's face it; the upcoming Star Wars film has made fans a little nervous. With crazy amounts of reshoots and massive delay in the release of the trailer, everyone speculated if the movie is going to be any good. But we have news for you guys. The first teaser is here and it'll help you get rid of all your doubts and concerns. After waiting for months, Disney finally released the teaser during Super Bowl and we get our first look at a young Han, played by Alden Ehrenreich, signing up to be a pilot and confidently proclaiming that he's going to be the "best in the galaxy." Typical Han! © Lucasfilm While the video is just 45 seconds long, we get glimpses at the star-studded cast. What else do you expect from a teaser anyway? We see the beautiful Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, who plays a character called Kira. © Lucasfilm We also see an extra AF fur coat- clad Donald Glover, who plays a young Lando Calrissian. © Lucasfilm The trailer also teases footage of the Millennium Falcon, Woody Harrelson and quick shots of everyone's favourite Chewbacca. © Lucasfilm And of course, the teaser is high on action and stunning visuals: ships, twisting trains, fight sequences et al. © Lucasfilm Have a look at the teaser: If you are left wanting for more (like the rest of us), the full trailer will be released tomorrow. Despite the delay in production and reshoots, the good news is that there is no change in the release date. As of yet, the movie is all set to hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
  18. Arguably one of the best all-rounders in limited-overs cricket, Dwayne Bravo rendered his all-round services to various franchises across the globe. While his explosive batting is capable of accelerating the innings for any team, the deceiving variations in his bowling are an absolute nightmare for an opposition batsman. From Trinbago Knight Riders to Essex, Lahore Qalandars to Melbourne Renegades, Bravo is a T20 franchise's delight with his multiple skills of power-packed batting and bowling during death overs. Thus, it was no surprise to see the Trinidadian snapped up by his old team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during the IPL auction. The 34-year-old was retained by CSK for a staggering Rs 6.40 crore after the franchise exercised their Right to Match (RTM) card during the crazy bidding war in the auction. While Chennai were clearly adamant on bringing their old war horse back into the team, Bravo, himself, expressed his happiness on rejoining his old employers.

Dear Super Fans, thank you for all the patience, prayers, roars and whistles in the past two days! Just like all our matches, it was a nail-biting finish. Presenting the #PrideOf18. Here's wishing them a roaring summer ahead!ð¦ðð #NewTeamSamePride #WhistlePodu #SummerIsComing pic.twitter.com/zqTXa3ZFTm — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) January 28, 2018 “Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu (he played with them for MI) to just name a few guys who are going to join us and wear the Yellow jersey. can't wait. I am happy, blessed and honoured to be retained by the Chennai Super Kings,” he added. Bravo, who played for Chennai from 2011 till 2015 in the IPL, amassed 706 runs and claimed 79 scalps. The right-hander also termed his CSK return as a big moment that a lot of individuals were waiting for. “The return of CSK to the IPL is a big one, a special one, a moment that a lot of people were waiting for,” Bravo said. © BCCL “Chennai Super Kings are one of the most successful franchises in IPL history. Definitely, IPL without Chennai Super Kings, it didn't have the same impact it had in the previous years,” he added. On Dhoni leading CSK again, Bravo said: "“I think the return of CSK, you know, Dhoni again representing Chennai Super Kings, being the leader, the fan base, the fan following that we have in India and outside of India, they mean a lot". Apart from Bravo, CSK also managed to secure the services of the South African paceman Lungi Ngidi and the West Indies star was all praise for his new teammate. “A young, talented fast bowler… I am very happy to be in the same team with him. I am looking forward to embracing him when he comes to represent the best franchise in the world,” Bravo said.
  19. The internet has gone into a meltdown AGAIN and if you too feel that the drop in temperature and this cold and chill is not affecting you anymore, you can partly thank our beloved Kim Kardashian for that. Kim Kardashian needs no introduction. Apart from being a mother of 3 and a diva with unparalleled hotness, she is also one of the reasons why we are constantly hooked to Instagram, and this new picture of her speaks volumes about why people are losing their minds over social media. © Instagram Sorry folks, but if Kim K's 'Bo Derek' braided look is not the first thing that popped up in your mind, you are clearly living under a rock. But then again, she has posted so many pictures in the past that it's not shocking anymore. Anyway, here's the picture in discussion. A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Jan 29, 2018 at 2:06pm PST Kim Kardashian recently posted a picture of herself wearing a white thong and fur coat and if that fur is the only thing on your mind right now, congratulations; you can go and add 'Fashion Expert' in your bio. Note: We love how she dodges the social media guidelines on nudity with such perfection, every single time. Having said that, while you might have scrolled down after looking at the picture, there are some people who are clearly not getting over this post anytime soon. While, Kim left nothing for imagination, people took “we've got you covered” to a whole new level and the results are 'Sanskaari' AF. No offense, but is that Alok Nath creating memes from different accounts? Anyway, here are some of the golden tweets.

  20. After crazy bidding wars and enough drama to last a lifetime, the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction for the eleventh edition has finally come to an end. The two-day auction witnessed the eight franchises assembled under one roof in a bid to rebuild their squad for the upcoming season, slated to begin from the 7th of April. While many would have predicted Ben Stokes to bag the biggest payout in the auction, seamer Jaydev Unadkat emerging as the costliest Indian shocked a large section of the fans. And, as always, there was some social media banter around the strengths and weaknesses of the new squads assembled by the eight participating teams. The IPL auction ended on Sunday, but the trolls are not done yet. Continuing their tirade against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who are making a comeback to India's cash-rich T20 league after a two-year ban, the cricket fans targeted the MS Dhoni brigade for their player selection strategy with funny comments on the social media. Dear Super Fans, thank you for all the patience, prayers, roars and whistles in the past two days! Just like all our matches, it was a nail-biting finish. Presenting the #PrideOf18.

  21. Pakistani heartthrob Mahira Khan is an embodiment of grace and aplomb. Recently, it was the first anniversary of Bollywood film ?Raees?, in which the Pakistani actress starred against none other than Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan. The film was a crucial step in propelling Mahira?s talent across the border. The actress gained wider recognition for both her acting and gorgeous looks. After the passage of a year, Mahira gave a royal throwback to the film, by posting movie stills on her social media accounts. The black-and-white pictures of the movie were enough to make the fans nostalgic.
  22. Media mogul Oprah Winfrey apparently ended her brief flirtation with a run for the US presidency in 2020, telling InStyle magazine in an interview published on Thursday that she was not interested. Photo: REUTERS/file Media mogul Oprah Winfrey apparently ended her brief flirtation with a run for the US presidency in 2020, telling InStyle magazine in an interview published on Thursday that she was not interested. But the leader of a political action committee supporting Winfrey said it would still to try to persuade her to run and continue seeking to recruit 1 million supporters. Winfrey, 63, stole the show at the Golden Globes awards ceremony earlier this month with a speech against sexual harassment and assault. It sparked an online campaign to lure her into running against Republican US President Donald Trump in the next election cycle. ?It?s not something that interests me,? Winfrey told InStyle. ?... I met with someone the other day who said that they would help me with a campaign. That?s not for me.? Winfrey, long associated with Democratic Party causes and fundraising, could not be reached for immediate comment. Winfrey?s friends had backed the idea with her longtime partner in business and life, Stedman Graham, telling the Los Angeles Times ?she would absolutely do it? if there was sufficient public support. Confidante Gayle King said on ?CBS This Morning? that Winfrey was ?intrigued? by the idea. After the Golden Globes, Democratic political consultant Cormac Flynn said he began receiving calls from associates who immediately persuaded him to support a Winfrey run, and he formed the National Committee to Draft Oprah Winfrey for President of the United States 2020. The committee would continue despite the InStyle interview, Flynn said, noting that other politicians have decided to run after initially declining. ?The purpose of our committee is to convince Oprah to reconsider,? said Flynn, whose independent expenditure committee, or Super PAC, consists of two unpaid staff and two consulting firms that are donating their time. ?She?s an exceptional leader and would be a tremendous president,? Flynn said. Known by millions on first-name basis, Winfrey first rose to fame as the host of a television talk show, using it to build a media empire that spans magazine publishing, movie and television production, cable TV and satellite radio. Born into poverty, she is now one of the world?s wealthiest women and been nominated for two Academy Awards. Trump relished the idea of a celebrity-versus-celebrity campaign, telling reporters earlier this month he did not think Winfrey would run but believed he would win that matchup. ?I?ll beat Oprah,? Trump said. ?Oprah would be a lot of fun.?
  23. There is a reason why cricket is considered a religion in India. Every one of us is an expert of the game. Despite our team's performance, we always find a reason to laud our boys - even in defeat. And, irrespective of anyone's stature in the game, no one's allowed to criticise our favourite cricketers, but us. So, when former England captain Michael Vaughan decided to conduct a poll on Twitter asking fans to pick between MS Dhoni and Jos Buttler, little did he know that his harmless comparison between the two cricketers would spark a massive outrage on the micro-blogging website. Intrigued what you all think...You are allowed 1 of these 2 now in your team... Who you going for on present form !?? — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) January 22, 2018 Taking to Twitter, Vaughan asked fans: "Intrigued what you all think...You are allowed 1 of these 2 (Dhoni and Buttler) now in your team...Who you going for on present form!??". With over 2,500 retweets and over 2,200 likes, Vaughan's tweet has attracted a massive response from the cricket fans, with 61 percent voting for Dhoni against Buttler. Hey Indian Twitter, pls do your thing, Thanks. https://t.co/tuyO4KRqUI — The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) January 22, 2018 But, that was not all. Irked by Dhoni's comparison with Buttler, the Indian fans, thereon, decided to give their opinion on Vaughan's poll in the way they know best. And, in his present form, @msdhoni hits @MichaelVaughan out of the park https://t.co/z0DHblnwWi — Garg Ankit (@graciousgarg) January 23, 2018 Dude @MichaelVaughan ,not for nothing dhoni is called the best finisher.

  24. Ever since its advent in 1844, the game of cricket has evolved over the years. With technological advancements, we've seen the introduction of Decision Review System (DRS). There has been a massive change in cricket equipment too. The cricket bats - much bigger and more effective - are now capable of sending a mis-hit deep into the stands. Similarly, the cricket stadiums have also witnessed their fair share of upgradations. From the air-conditioned private boxes to well-equipped dressing rooms, there is pretty much everything available in a cricket stadium these days. So much so that we even have a few stadiums that provide the luxury of watching the gentleman's game from a swimming pool, few inches away from live action. © Twitter Brisbane's Gabba stadium is one such haven whose fine facilities are capable of putting a five-star hotel to shame. On 19 January, when Australia and England were busy sweating it out on the field during the second ODI, few cricket fans were seen enjoying all the action while cooling off in Gabba's popular Pool Deck. © Instagram While temperatures were rising on the pitch, fans in bikinis and swimming trunks clearly had the best view in the stadium. In a bid to attract more fans to cricket, the state-of-the-art Pool Deck debuted during last year's Day-Night Test between Australia and Pakistan - with Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice acting as the Gabba's pool ambassador. © Twitter The pool is more than capable of accomodating up to 140 spectators, and more than ten times that number experienced live cricket action from the spot last season. Set in between two large decking areas complete with loungers and shade, fans can take in the action on the edge of the pitch while enjoying drinks and food as they spalsh around in the water. © Twitter However, securing the best seats at Gabba is not that easy. Surprisingly, entry to the pool area is reserved only for the fans who wear the most fetching swimwear - with random spotters in the crowd tasked with inviting them in. And unlike the viewers in their pools at home, the Gabba pool revellers are forbidden from having any booze at arm's reach. © Twitter You also might expect to cop a fair bit of attention, being in a kind of human fishbowl. The pool has platforms of multiple depths for your viewing pleasure, or for your display to the envious masses – whichever way you choose to look at it. © Twitter On one hand where the pool revellers were having a gala time, the home side eventually ended up on the losing side. Riding on the heroics of Aaron Finch (106), Australia managed to post 270 runs at the loss of nine wickets after opting to bat first. In reply, a brilliant peerformance by their middle-order batsmen ensured England romped to a four-wicket win with almost six overs left to play. Opening the innings for his side, Jonny Bairstow turned out to be the top-scorer for 'The Poms' with his gritty knock of 60 runs. He was well supported by Alex Hales (57), Joe Root (46*) and Jos Buttler (42) who all collectively devised England's triumph. Now this is how to watch cricket... ð#fridayfeeling #bbccricket #AUSvENG pic.twitter.com/lUi0tYm0GC — Test Match Special (@bbctms) January 19, 2018 Though their team lost the second consecutive game in the ODI series, we reckon the home fans - especially the ones who enjoyed all the action from the Pool Deck - wouldn't be complaining at all.
  25. After a sensational comeback in 2017, Roger Federer is set to embark on a new challenge as he gears up for the first Grand Slam of the year - the Australian Open. With Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic setting the bar very high early in the tournament, Federer, too, got off to a solid start to his Australian Open title defence by brushing Aljaz Bedene aside in straight sets, in his first game. While many have labelled him as the man to beat at the ongoing Australian Open, Federer himself feels that a 36-year-old like him should never be the favourite at a major. That's the humility this legendary World No. 2 player brings to the table. But, apart from being humble and grounded, Federer also has a great sense of humour. ðð·ð¨ð­ð¸ð¨ pic.twitter.com/zvy6itZoDm — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) January 14, 2018 Ahead of his opening clash at Melbourne Park, Federer - who's arguably the world's greatest hero in tennis - shared a picture of himself alongside a few famous superhero characters. But, that was not all, the Swiss ace had social media buzzing after asking his fans to photoshop him as a superhero. I doubt that... but let's give it a shot.. been awhile since the last #PhotoshopRF. Let's see your best/funniest photoshops of me a superhero https://t.co/jCvlaCPaVH — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) January 15, 2018 While his photoshopped tour of India still lingers in our memory, Federer's latest request was once again fulfilled by his fans, who wasted no time in showing off their photo-editing skills and honestly, the results are beyond words.
