  1. Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were the poster couple that the millennial world needed desperately. They looked simply perfect. © Instagram Well, it is 2018 and people break up sooner than we think. Our gorgeous couple here also unfortunately ended things and we did not see it coming. While many go for rebounds, some lie low-key, some take a vacation, but Zayn decided to get more tattoos as a coping mechanism! He got inked again and honestly, I couldn't help myself but compare him to our 'pandi ji's '. Why? Because he got a rose inked on him, which looks like a rat-tail tattoo actually. A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Mar 16, 2018 at 1:42pm PDT You know how the rat tail hairstyle resembles slightly to the little string of hair that most Hindu priests have? Turns out it is also a fashion statement now. © Twitter Zayn is famous for his love for tattoos and recently got Gigi's eyes inked on his chest. A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Mar 13, 2018 at 6:12pm PDT A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Mar 13, 2018 at 6:12pm PDT Well, I guess tattoos last longer than love these days.
  2. Possibly the only thing that hurts more than your crush rejecting you is a job rejection. Especially for a person who has big dreams and has just graduated from college. Being a fresher in any industry and getting people to trust your capability to give you a job is not an easy task. But what if another factor is added to this equation, say being visually impaired. Well, a Jaipur-based lad faced the same issue but you know how he overcame it- by starting his own company so that he can create jobs for others. © Facebook Prateek Agarwal was an excellent student throughout his education and graduated among the top three students in computer science from NIIT University in Neemrana. But every time he sat for campus recruitment, he was rejected due to him being visually impaired. © Facebook In an interview to The Times of India, he revealed his story, "Every time I sat for campus recruitment, I was among the top performers. I would score well in the aptitude test, reasoning, group discussions and was actively participating in the activities. But when it came to the final round, the HR team of those companies would say I was an inspiration and they were extremely moved by my talent. But at the end, they would say they cannot hire a blind student.” For a person who is superbly talented, the fact that he got rejected only because of something he has no control over was enough to break him down. “This happened so many times, over and again and then I started to feel devastated. I used to cry and ask myself what more can I do to get a job and what is more there in my hand to do,” Prateek added. After facing rejection over and over again, people around him used to 'suggest' that he should try his hand at singing. Why? Because blind people are thought to be best suited to pursuing such careers. However, Prateek was not a person who would back down easily. He decided to move on from these discouraging incidents and start his own company called 'Daedal Technovations' while in the final year of his engineering. © Times of India But of course, that wasn't an easy feat again because people would not trust a blind man with their work. Talking about his struggles he said, “Initially, I had no clients. I used to go shop to shop in the hot summer approaching local businesses asking them if they have any software requirements. At that time the businesses were getting digital in areas like invoicing, stock and HR management. Sometimes, I would call up people and have three or four rounds of discussions about their requirements. But finally, when I would meet them, they would feel flummoxed. Are you the same guy who was talking over the phone? They would ask me. Eventually, they would say they cannot give the project to a blind man.” Eventually, he managed to get some contracts but those were not enough for him to grow as an entrepreneur. He realised that he needs to look for opportunities online. And guess what? That realisation worked wonders for him. © Times of India He now has clients across the world, over 40 employees and has expanded his business too with some solid plans for the future, “Right now over 95% of my clients are online spread over many countries in the world like the US, UK, Australia, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia etc. Our range of services expanded over the years covering software application with expertise in B2B segment, digital marketing, social media, search engine marketing, project, and security consultancy. We also provide online training for some complex technologies. Currently, we are working on technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics and cryptocurrency,” added Prateek. © Daedal Technovations Throughout his life, Prateek was ridiculed and brought down by people because of his disability. However, constant support from his family and some excellent teachers during his school days helped him become confident about his skills and made him who he is today. Not only is he a successful entrepreneur now, he also provides personality and life skills training to corporate and individuals. Apart from that, he has taken up social causes and also teaches computer skills to visually-challenged people. You can listen to his incredible story in his own words in this video:
  3. I have often heard people say, “Good looks is just a bonus if you have a great personality!” Why does no one ever mention that sometimes looking too good or handsome can actually turn into a bane, instead of a boon? Well, no one can understand this bitter truth better than a 25-year-old Chinese airport technician who apparently got a 10% pay cut after his video went viral and turned him into a national heartthrob. Yes, his bosses deducted his salary for breaking the internet, with literally just one walk. But, before we tell you what his mistake was or why are people losing their minds over him, check out this video. The man in picture is South Korean actor Song Joong Ki, whose popularity skyrocketed after his performance in 'Descendants of the Sun'. This particular video shows him walking towards his leading lady, with an attitude that literally has 'zero f**ks to give' written all over. People are now comparing this handsome airport technician to the South Korean actor. Why? Is he also walking towards his lady? Has he been offered any movie role? No, the internet is losing its mind looking at the guy walk on tarmac with his cool shades and noise-cancelling headphones on. The video was shot by a passenger on board a flight at China's Xiamen airport, and within no time gained more than a million views on China's short-video platform Tik Tok. © Facebook While, women were busy debating about whether he looks like Song Joong Ki or not, the guy's company was busy discussing something more grave in nature. “How much pay cut should he get? Since, it's a 13-second video, maybe 10% is enough?” Probably that's what his seniors were thinking. This is the video we are talking about. However, there's more to it that just good looks. The man, who won millions of hearts on the internet, lost to his company that deducted 10% of his salary since his uniform was untidy and he had one hand in his pocket. Reportedly, his demeanor was against the company's code of conduct. According to a report in CGTN, a notice sent by the company mentioned, “Taking into consideration the influential impact this video has made, the aggravated penalty must be applied.” © weibo After his video went viral and people started reacting to the pay cut, the guy himself responded about the incident and said that he accepts the punishment given by the company. He said, “Honestly, I still feel quite happy because it is not easy to become so famous that quickly.” Well, I guess you should meet Priya Prakash Varrier, who can give you lessons on how to become famous in less than 24 hours. Anyway, the guy further said, “My company did nothing wrong, it was my fault for not keeping with the correct standards in terms of dress code and behavior.” He even took the person's side who shot the video, “Please don't bombard the passenger who uploaded the video online. I never blamed her, because she didn't mean to cause me any harm.” Honestly, being a fan of South Korean dramas, I am very particular about my favourite actors and do not appreciate anyone comparing them with others. But, given how this guy and his walk have the potential to beat Priya Prakash Varrier's wink, I can let this comparison pass. Well, although you got a 10% pay cut, you get a 100% from all of us for looking this handsome.
  4. Spewing theories and speculating the 'real meaning' behind certain scenes is second nature to 'Game of Thrones' fans. So obviously, when this scene happened right in Season 1, besides tears and heartbreak, there was also an avalanche of conjectures and suddenly everyone was frikkin' Sherlock Holmes. via GIPHY Unless you are one those who read the books, no one saw this scene coming. The mighty Ned Stark losing his head just like that because of a spoiled, psycho brat? It was preposterous. But it happened nevertheless and everyone felt like their hearts had been ripped out from their mouths. © Arya Sansa But then, those with eagle eyes spotted something--something that could have massive significance, something that could change the course for many major characters. via GIPHY That's right. Ned mutters something to himself, which later sparked a row of speculations. Some believe he said “I kept my promise” in reference to Jon Snow's lineage, while some are absolutely convinced that it was “Valar Morgulis”. Regardless, everyone was sure that those last words had tectonic, earth-shattering implications. via GIPHY So, in a recent interview, Sean Bean, who played Eddard Stark finally revealed what his last words were and boy, do we feel stupid for coming up with those incredible theories! So brace yourself and read ahead. “I couldn't be too specific, because I don't know if religion [like that] was around in those days, whatever they were. I just thought, "What would you do if this were really gonna happen?" You probably would pray. You probably would murmur some words and you'd keep it quiet. You'd keep it to yourself.” via GIPHY WTF! Praying? He was only praying?? No special last message, no secret code, no answer to a mysterious question? The poor guy was only praying before the blade sliced his neck! Clearly, Sean empathised with the fans, who were bound for a rude shock after this revelation and he tried to pacify them. “It's quite subtle in that many people wouldn't pick it up. It was an interesting thing to do for me at that point. There's not much you can do really, you've got your head on a block. That's about the only thing you can do is murmur,” he said. via GIPHY So, I guess now this serves as a lesson in not going overboard with our imagination when it comes to theories and speculation. Fine Ned, we learnt our lesson! Thanks! But wait a minute…which God was he praying to? Old Gods? The New Gods? Lord Light? Or some other force of nature? Great, here we go again. Sorry Ned, some things will never change.
  5. Trump and McMaster shake hands after the latter was announced as NSA in Feb last year. Photo: Reuters WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has decided to replace his national security adviser, HR McMaster, but the move is not expected to be made immediately, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. Citing five people with knowledge of the plans, the Post said Trump was considering several possible replacements, including former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton and Keith Kellogg, the chief of staff of the National Security Council. The White House did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment. Trump fires Tillerson, replaces him with hawkish spy chief Pompeo Gina Haspel will become the CIA director On Tuesday, Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the president has signaled in recent days that a shake-up at the top levels of his administration was not over. ?I?m really at a point where we?re getting very close to having the cabinet and other things that I want,? Trump told reporters after Tillerson was fired. McMaster is not expected to be ousted immediately, the Post reported. Trump is willing to take his time making the change to avoid humiliating McMaster and carefully choose a strong replacement, the Post said. Trump Chooses HR McMaster as National Security Adviser General known for sharp questions will be Trump's new top security adviser Trump never personally gelled with McMaster and the president recently told White House Chief of Staff John Kelly that he wanted McMaster replaced, according to the Post. Trump has complained that McMaster, a three-star army general, is too rigid and that his briefings go on too long and seem irrelevant, the Post reported. McMaster is Trump?s second national security adviser, succeeding Michael Flynn who was dismissed a year ago for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States.
  6. Ever since the reports about 'Baaghi 2' started doing rounds – be it its trailer, promo, teaser, poster or first look – people have been primarily talking about Tiger Shroff's insane stunts and ripped physique. © Instagram But, in case, if you haven't noticed already, Tiger Shroff's killer 'fade' haircut is getting equal attention or probably more than the movie itself. Just like how people were talking more about Henry Cavill's moustache and how Warner Bros. spent $25 million to remove it using CGI than 'Justice League'. The only difference? Tiger has not turned into the butt of all jokes for his haircut, as people actually love this transformation. Yep, it's the same look he sported while holidaying with Disha Patani in Sri Lanka and broke the thermometer by raising the temperature. © Instagram However, he wasn't initially prepared for this change. Since his 'Heropanti' days, Tiger Shroff was usually seen sporting a long mane and the actor too admitted that he does not like cutting his hair. But, thanks to producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director Ahmed Khan, and his hair stylists; who convinced him to try a different look, we finally got to see the new avatar of Tiger. Check out this video to see his insanely great transformation, his nervousness and the end result that makes his look more dapper and killer than ever. 'Baaghi 2' also stars Disha Patani and is expected to release on 30th March 2018. “I was sad to cut my hair but I guess it's worth it!” Tiger said in his transformation video, which perfectly explains our anxiety, when we used to go for a haircut in our younger days.
  7. The ongoing Test series between Australia and South Africa has already witnessed its fair share of excitement which further paved way for controversies. If David Warner's explosive run-in with Quinton de Kock wasn't enough, Kagiso Rabada's inappropriate contact with Steve Smith further fuelled tempers. Following a thorough investigation by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the South African pacer was found guilty after an hour-long hearing with match referee Jeff Crowe and handed three demerit points to take his tally to eight, equating to a two-Test ban. © Reuters During the second Test at Port Elizabeth, Rabada - who was dangerously living on the edge - found himself in hot waters when he brushed shoulders with the Australian captain after dismissing him in the first innings. He was later charged with a Level 2 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct and was also fined 50 per cent of his match fee. But, the biggest blow was undoubtedly his suspension from the remaining two Test matches in the series which is currently tied at 1-1. However, as the Rabada-Smith controvery continues to gather steam, Virat Kohli seems to have found his way into the fracas - courtesy former South African cricketer Paul Harris. If he has to then everyone does. I watched Kohli behave like a clown for three tests here in SA and nothing. Seems to me that @ICC either have an issue with Rabada or with the Proteas in general. — paul harris (@paulharris12) March 12, 2018 The 39-year-old clearly wasn't impressed with the ICC's decision to reprimand Rabada when he took to Twitter and called the Indian captain a clown. "If he has to then everyone does. I watched Kohli behave like a clown for three tests here in SA and nothing. Seems to me that @ICC either have an issue with Rabada or with the Proteas in general," he tweeted. Incidentally, the ICC had sanctioned Kohli for repeatedly complaining to the umpires about a damp ball and then aggressively throwing it to the floor during the second test against South Africa in Pretoria. He was fined 25 percent of his match fee and received one demerit point. It's safe to say that Indian cricket fans weren't impressed with Harris' tweet as they took turns to give the former Proteas star a piece of their mind. Oh, Dude, Paul @paulharris12 ! You just opened up the proverbial hornet's nest. This kinda talk actually endorses your team's CHOKER tag. See you at the IPL, with your begging bowls! — Aniket Warty (@funandlearning) March 13, 2018 So Kohli scoring loads of runs against SA make him clown ... Please stick to Rabada nd Warner and ICC ... If someone wants to play rugby and hit each other on field it's thr problem. Why bring Kohli in this..chokers mentality — Saurabh Thapliyal (@saurabhthapliya) March 14, 2018 Well said. Stick to Rabada n Warner. Indian Team has had it's share of inconsistent rulings from ICC. Denness incident comes to mind, where six Indian players were handed at least one test match ban during the 2001 Port Elizabeth Test. None of you came out n voiced it opinions! — à®à¯à®ªà¯à®³à¯à®³ (@SnakeBabuItsMe) March 15, 2018 When you keep getting demerit points in every series you deserved to be banned . Guy hasn't learnt a thing from what happened in England — Abhigya Pranshu (@abhigya10) March 13, 2018 Rabada has crossed the 8 point mark...he has continuously got demerit points so he was banned!! And the main reason to get demerit points in the second test is because Steve Smith has consulted the empires regarding the shoulder touch..so a strong decision was taken!! — Harsha (@hvk99) March 13, 2018 First of all ,#IND_Vs_SA series is already https://t.co/xxEQzpgg5e why are you asking about #KOHLI is not making any sense.If you would ask about Warner,people may understand why that.I think you have a personal problem with Mr.Kohli,Right..!!? — Utkal Gourav (@Utkal_Gourav) March 13, 2018 Hey paul ! U remember 5 Indian cricketers were suspended for an appeal many years back including Match ban for Sewag ! We felt he same so move on bro — Binayak Kar (@KarBinayak) March 14, 2018 haha look who is talking,a wild frustrated crawling chokerðð — Aman srivastava (@Aman87Sri) March 14, 2018 Last but not the least, You are going to get popular by your rubbish tweet as you will be trolled by billion+ Kohli fans. — Vinod Ahir (@vinodahir1) March 15, 2018 Why you bring in Kohli ? It's not fare. Thank you. — Tridib Phukan (@phukan_tridib) March 14, 2018 Very classy PaulHarris! PaulHarriswho? What a joke..Yes we all watched Kohli too.. and he was guilty yes - of scoring mountains of runs against SA. PaulHarris is the biggest clown there can ever be! The worst part - he tweets like one! Even worst - he does not know he is one. — Krishna Beerakayala (@Krishbeer) March 15, 2018 Poor choice of words. Clown?? You wanted attention and you got it so deal with it. I can imagine the frustration as you know u will lose 3rd test without Rabada but that doesn't mean u vent ur frustration on Kohli. Deal with it. — Manoj Shetty (@mashetty4) March 15, 2018
  8. On December 2nd, 2000, Vikas Khanna landed at New York's John F Kennedy International Airport with no job offer in hand but only a dream in his heart to make it big in life. When he arrived there, a small restaurant had an opening for a dishwasher. Vikas took the job but he was thrown out in no time when he was asked to step in as a waiter. He says, “I couldn't speak English at all. Who knew Wild Turkey was a drink and not a meat dish?” With no job in hand, he turned towards some odd jobs. He helped elderly people walk their pets and worked multiple part-time shifts at a small cafe in Tribeca, Manhattan. He remembers that one Christmas Eve, where he was left with only $3 in his pocket and had to choose between paying for food or travel. Well this is not just the story of someone becoming one of the most well known chefs from India, but also of the pain and failures he had to go through in his childhood, the courage he showed irrespective of his disability, the determination in the struggle he chose for himself against all odds, the people who helped him achieve the impossible and the polite and empathetic nature that made him become a better and respectable human being. Vikas says, “America mein toh yeh sab karte hai. Udher toh presidents bhi college ke time pe waiters thhe(Everybody faces hardships in America. Even presidents have waited tables during their college years.) © Vikas Khanna/Forbes Vikas Khanna, the son of a video cassette library owner in Amritsar, who is today known as the global food icon from India, was born with a condition of misaligned legs and had to wear wooden shoes till his teens. His inability to walk or play like other children often made him a victim of being ridiculed by his peers. Despite the crushing sadness, there was one thing that interested Vikas in in his early days. Instead of playing outside with other children he used to stay home and watch his Biji cook different dishes at home. He says, "at that time, people thought it was crazy that I was being taught to cook and wash utensils. Biji was the only one supporting me in those early years." When he turned 13 his braces came off and the doctor said he was now fit to run. By now he had already developed an interest in developing a catering business of his own and one fine day the principal of a school got in touch with his mother and himself to make 580 sweaters to help them raise money for their catering business. © Vikas Khanna/Forbes Even though he had no idea how to knit still he took the opportunity and learned the skill from his Biji. When Vikas turned 17, he bought his first tandoor and decided to set up his business, Lawrence Gardens, in his backyard with the Rs 15,000 he had earned from knitting sweaters. So, now he had a steady business of his on but what next? Another important person entered his life and changed his perspective of how big the world is and its immense opportunities. That person turned out to be his uncle from Ireland. © Vikas Khanna/Forbes His uncle then took him for the midnight buffet at ITC's Maurya Sheraton in Delhi. It was then Vikas realized that there was life beyond his tandoor. On his uncle's insistence, he applied for a degree in hospitality management from the Welcomgroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration in Manipal, Karnataka. But, if you think that things were going to be smooth for him from this point on, you are wrong. Khanna could only speak Hindi and had a very loose grip on English. This came as a roadblock in his admission to the course, which hinged upon his performance in the group discussion and a personal interview. Khanna himself sensed the unimpressed vibe at the interview. This was the first thought that came into his mind after the interview was over, “I had told my family that now I am going to get trained in Manipal, and later set up the best Indian hotel in the world. Now, I didn't know how and where to go back to.” But Vikas hadn't quit yet and walked up to the professors and narrated his passion for food in Hindi. Professor Tharakan says, “It convinced the two of us(Prasad & Tharakan) that he indeed had a flair for cooking and we decided to admit him.” Here is where Vikas experimented with his inventive fusion cooking, that perfectly blended Indian tastes with Western techniques and ingredients, which would later earn Khanna plaudits from his Western colleagues. © Vikas Khanna/Forbes During his days at Manipal, he had never even heard of a Michelin star. But, one day while flipping through a magazine he came across an article on the culinary equivalent of an Oscar. He then asked Tharakan that how one could earn the prized tag. The professor replied with a simple answer: “Work hard.” Vikas finished his college in 1994 and was rejected by ITC, the first company that came for campus recruitment, for his poor English skills. Recalling the experience he says, “They asked me to name a variety of cheeses. I told them I could write them, but couldn't pronounce. Obviously, I wasn't selected. Back then, our people were trained not to become good Indian chefs, but to be good corporate chefs and serve in big five-star hotels. This has changed thanks to top chefs like Sanjeev Kapoor and Tarla Dalal, who have validated our profession. Now, for the next five years he remained in Amritsar but then one day his brother Nishant gave him Richard Bach's seminal work Jonathan Livingston Seagull and narrated how the protagonist, a bird learning to fly, pushes boundaries for greater glory. This book changed his life. Vikas says,” Drawing parallels, my brother pushed me to be successful at the global level. He told me there's no greater country in the world than the US that supports creative freedom and freethinkers. And my sister Radhika was the one to support me emotionally and help me make it through in the US every day.” At the visa office, the staff in Delhi told him they had seen many an impulsive “weekend visitors” such as him. “I told them I am not coming back, that I wanted to set up the best Indian restaurant in the US and that was my only dream,” he recalls. © Vikas Khanna/Forbes Since then, he has cooked for former US President Barack Obama, spiritual guru Dalai Lama, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and has worked with top chefs in the world like Gordon Ramsay. In 2010 he started his restaurant 'Junoon' for which he later earned a Michelin Star. He has been in 'Masterchef Australia', Ramsay's 'Hell's Kitchen', 'Throwdown with Bobby Flay', 'The Martha Stewart Show' and 'MasterChef India' and is a world-famous chef, a writer, a TV show host, and a filmmaker as well. © Madhu Kapparath This was the tale of Vikas Khanna who never ignores but acknowledges anyone who gives him a knowing smile, attends to every photo request that his customer and fans make and also stops to shake every hand that's extended towards his way. The most important takeaway from his tale is that, just having and nurturing a dream is not enough, but you need to take concrete, measurable steps towards it in order for it to come true.
  9. Aamir Khan has always done things differently. Be it his movies, or his opinions, or even his perspective when it comes to how things work in Bollywood. So when he stepped out wearing a super unusual pair of footwear to be worn with a pair of jeans and t-shirt on his birthday, we weren't really surprised. © Viral Bhayani Aamir chose a pair of good old Kolhapuris. Now that is a pair that's a staple in every Desi guy's wardrobe, but we doubt whether anyone's sense of aesthetics is evolved enough to pair them up with jeans and t-shirt. © Viral Bhayani Aamir's new look for his latest movie 'Thugs of Hindostan' is anyway being talked about everywhere - and rightfully so. The rustic badassery of that handlebar moustache coupled with that of the raw wickedness of those five piercings across his nose and ears is a vision in itself. © Viral Bhayani The way he is making it all work seamlessly is a style lesson worthy to be noted. The muted shades of blue are working flawlessly with the dark brown Kolhapuris. No wonder he is called Mr Perfectionist. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that it has now been established that like a true blue imaginative Piscean, Aamir doesn't follow trends but creates his own. Kudos!
  10. Shah Rukh Khan is an actor who is loved by millions across the globe. This man is the sheer example of making it big on his own without any strings in the industry. Being an outsider, he struggled a lot in his early days and despite not belonging to an influential Bollywood family, he made his way to the top of the ladder, becoming a household name. Lovingly known as 'King Khan' or 'Badshah' of Bollywood, Shah Rukh's success story is emotional, inspiring and at the same time heartbreaking. It takes a lot of hard work and courage to rise in tinsel town, which is known for proudly supporting nepotism. © Twitter While today, the actor rules millions of hearts, early in his life, Shah Rukh Khan faced one of the biggest roadblocks of his life. The demise of his parents left him shattered but it never stopped him from believing in his dreams. In a candid chat with Rani Mukherji during the promotion of her upcoming film 'Hichki', SRK revealed how losing his parents had crushed him. He spoke in detail about how he converted his grief into his passion for acting, which only helped him soar in the industry. © YouTube “My greatest Hichki moment is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 26 when my mother passed away. We were not financially stable and I was pursuing my Masters. It was sad all of a sudden, we could feel that void. The loneliness, loss of both my parents, this pain could have made thing difficult for us. I decided to overcome that Hichki by letting acting take it away,” Khan said. “The pain never really went away but it used to focus a lot on my work. For me acting is that little vent. People close to me will tell you that acting is my vent, my place to manifesting these emotions. I always say this to my family that one morning, when I wake up, I will realise that I have spent all these emotions and now have nothing more to give as an actor. So, death is a hiccup from where you can't come back. I knew it and hence gave it all in my work. God might give you hiccups but he always gives you a way out of it as well. I found my friends and family in this industry again.” Check out the video now: SRK is one of those actors whose journey to fame is not just inspiring but emotional as well. It's a story that can inspire you and help you to make a name for yourself in this big world.
  11. When Indian skipper Virat Kohli is not giving reasons to his fans to cheer for him while he is on the field, he is giving everyone couple goals, courtesy team 'Virushka'. While the world is bowled over his form on the field, the cricketer has his personal favourites as well. Everyone is aware of how he has admired Ronaldo and Sachin Tendulkar, who is the God of cricket for every player out there. © Instagram However, in a recent interview, Virat spilled the beans on who is his ultimate favourite athlete, and it is not Ronaldo or Sachin. He revealed that he is the biggest fan of tennis legend, Roger Federer. Federer is in his best shape and has been constantly retaining his number one spot on the ATP rankings chart. “Roger Federer is my ultimate favourite. When he plays it's so beautiful. He has a family now, priorities set, he takes time out of the game without worrying about opinions and criticism of people and then he comes in and wins Grand Slams at 36, he is defying all the logic and that's something I totally love”, he said. ð A post shared by Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) on Feb 18, 2018 at 8:50am PST Talking about what sets the Swiss icon apart, Virat added, “I hate following the norm and he is someone who is breaking barriers on a daily basis and I have huge respect for him.” Virat is currently enjoying some chill time with his beautiful wife Anushka. Chilling and how! ð A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Mar 11, 2018 at 4:22am PDT We thought his favourite athlete is a cricketer, but then Virat and his choices are never the clichés anyway .
  12. 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.
  13. When Heath Ledger played the iconic Joker in 'The Dark Knight', the actor left an imprint on our minds and convinced us that no one can ever recreate the role to perfection like he did. His role not only earned him a posthumous Oscar but also redefined what it meant to be a true villain on the big screen. © Twitter The character Ledger played was so iconic, that when he passed away due to an accidental prescription drug overdose, thinking of anyone else stepping into his shoes was next to impossible. Recently, we heard that we are soon going to get a standalone Joker origin film. In fact, if Variety reports are to be believed, then Joaquin Pheonix was in talks with Todd Phillips for the role, however, someone else is trying to stake claim to the important role. Tommy Wiseau- the man, who directed, produced and starred in 'The Room', tweeted Philip asking him to send him a message about the role. Todd. DM me. https://t.co/DHYg3EXvhs — Tommy Wiseau (@TommyWiseau) February 10, 2018 In his next tweet, he stated that "Yes! I want to be THE JOKER!" Well, we don't know if Philip will be interested in this or not, but Wiseau is quite adamant and wants this role for himself. And that's just not it, he even came up with an audition tape where he can be seen playing the Joker. Decked up exactly like the Joker, the actor can be seen yelling, shouting and laughing creepily all the while. You also see actor Greg Sestero making a cameo as Batman. Wiseau indeed knows what he is doing and looks pretty convincing to some extent. But obviously, something is missing. Taking to his Twitter he also asked what the viewers thought of his tape: What do you think of me as The Joker? Link in story. See @bf_movie March 30th#tommywiseau… https://t.co/brbzQJRB1n — Tommy Wiseau (@TommyWiseau) March 12, 2018 There were many who were totally sold for his act and loved every bit of it. One wrote, "They'd be stupid not to hire you. In fact, if you don't get the role then I'll be tempted to write my own superhero movie and cast you as the villain because I'm smart and I know a golden opportunity when I see one." While another said, "I think you'd play a great Joker. I think if you could feed off the emotion of everyone telling that you can't do it, you could be the best Joker yet." Now, all we have to see is what Philip thinks of this. Will Wiseau get this dream role? Let us know what you think of it.
  14. If Priya Prakash Varrier's video taught us anything, it is that some people can literally get a million followers with just a wink; while the rest of us have to spend most of our time sending requests to our friends in hopes that they will follow us back. © YouTube Well, having said that, I think we all know the basic universal rule of social media - the more followers you have, the more viral your posts go and naturally, more virality brings more fame. Everyone loves followers on social media. While we crib about the number of 'I can literally count on my fingers' followers, nothing pinches more than knowing that more than half of those followers are fake. Our PM Narendra Modi and the world got to know of this bitter truth in the most hilariously painful way, after a Twitter audit revealed that 60% of his Twitter followers are fake. © wikimedia So trusting my calculation skills, out of Modi's 41 million followers if 60% are fake, it means approximately only 26 million followers are real. When the data was released on February 21, Modi had 40.3 million followers according the statistics. In less than a month he earned 7 million more followers. Honestly, this massive jump is way more promising than those hair-gain or weight-loss in 30 days messages. © wikimedia Last year, Modi was rewarded with the title of being the world's most followed leader across all social media platforms. Who knew that the pool of victory he was swimming in all this while will be shrunk by half, all thanks to the fake followers. Look at the bright side, just like any other list, Modi managed to top this one too. Although we don't think he will be any happier to know this. World Leaders and their Fake followers Some of the most followed world leaders and their share of bot followers as determined by https://t.co/TdNIomSdNt. Graphics prepared by @Saosasha @gzeromedia#DigitalDiplomacy pic.twitter.com/viid9ZTReV — Twiplomacy ð (@Twiplomacy) February 21, 2018 According to a report published in Outlook, these followers include internet bots and inactive followers. Internet bots are kind of “an automated application that helps to imitate workings of accounts of actual humans.” But Modi is not alone. The list includes some of the world's biggest names like Donald Trump (37%), Pope Francis (59%), Pena Nieto (47%), King Salman (8%), Taylor Swift (19%) and Kim Kardashian (44%). At 37% fake followers, this list comes as an assurance that a lot of people are now saved from Trump's covfefe tweet and his childish argument with North Korea. After this revelation, we have realized one thing. Memes are not the only savage thing Twitter can think of to mess with someone. It has a lot of evil cards up its sleeves. This data was determined by Twitter Audit's algorithm, which factors in number of tweets, date of the last tweet, and ratios of followers to friends.
  15. At first, the sight of the alleged Whatsapp conversations between Mohammad Shami and multiple women leaked on the social media seemed nothing more than a sick prank, insinuating a potential hand of trolls who thrive on throwing dirt on popular individuals. But, soon, the doubts subsided when Shami's wife Hasin Jahan was seen opening the can of worms during her interviews to multiple media outlets. The allegations levelled against Shami by own wife included infidelity, domestic violence, torture and pretty much everything there was to sabotage the reputation of a cricketer of his calibre. To top it all, Jahan has also accused Shami of cheating his country after she claimed her husband took money from a Pakistani girl named Alisbah over the insistence of England-based businessman Mohammed Bhai. © Instagram And, just like that, one of India's premier bowlers, a cricket icon and an inspiration to the youth became a pantomime villain. A personal matter that, ideally, should have dealt with behind closed curtains has sadly become a matter of great public debate, enticing media scrutiny. With the police investigation is still in progress, it's almost ludicrous to brand Shami as the perpetrator or calling his wife's claims baseless. We don't know if he really tortured, abused or even cheated on her, but it's just too hard to overlook his never-ending support to his wife in the past, at least on the social media. © Instagram Every time an Islamic zealot took aim at Jahan or their daughter with their moral policing drive, Shami stood up for his family and gave a befitting reply. At a time when traditionalists, in the name of religion, criticised Jahan for her choice of clothing, Shami rallied behind her and made the naysayers eat their own words. And, at the end of it all, it's just hard to wrap our heads around the fact that Shami would mean harm to his wife, let alone assault or cheat on her. Having said that, there's is no doubt that Shami's social media activity makes his case stronger, but what it does say a thing or two about his character, reflecting the kind of person he really is. And, maybe that's why someone as close to Shami as his former captain MS Dhoni had no qualms in throwing his weight behind the Indian seamer in these troubled times. © Instagram “As far as I know, Shami is a great human being. He cannot cheat his wife and country. This is Shami's personal matter and we should not make any comment on it,” Dhoni said in an exclusive interview with Jansatta.com. Apart from MSD, Shami also found support from another World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev who questioned Jahan's allegations and asked as to why she didn't voice her concerns earlier. "I refuse to believe the allegations that have been levelled by Shami's wife. If she knew about match-fixing then why didn't she report it earlier?" Dev told ABP News. © Instagram "When the relationship was fine, why was she silent then? There is an investigation team. Let them do their work. If Shami has done something like this then it is unacceptable and disgraceful. Shami is a brilliant hardworking cricketer. I agree that his personal relationship is in trouble currently but such kinds of allegations by his wife are nasty and sickening until proven," he added. Guilty or not, the explosive revelations by Jahan already seems to have hampered Shami's career with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) putting his central contract on hold amid the investigation. On the other hand, the Indian cricket fans who once cherished Shami's exploits on the field, are now deeming him unfit as a role model. The case also brings back the memories of the sensational Tiger Woods controversy that saw one of world's highest-paid athlete shot to the ground, losing pretty much everything he had or ever accomplished. Ever since his admission to infidelity, Woods have never been the same. The US golfer who once looked invincible winning one Major after another, is today struggling to stay afloat on the professional circuit.
  16. Mahendra Singh Dhoni was undeniably enjoying all the fanfare in lieu of his success with the Indian cricket team. He was shattering records and setting up winning streaks as captain, while his ability to finish the game gave Team India and their fans reason to keep on dreaming even in dire situations. But, after successfully establishing himself as one of the most popular and cherished Indian cricketers, Dhoni and his fellow teammates witnessed the rise of Virat Kohli who carved his own niche on the back of consistent performances across all formats. While his never-say-die attitude reflected a new brand of cricket, his artistry with the willow quickly turned him into one of the most influential cricketers for his side. It was Kohli's ability to assess match situations and mould his game accordingly which forced the team management and Indian fans to believe that maybe this was the guy who could succeed Dhoni as captain of the national team. Soon, he was seen shepherding the Indian side in Tests and, in January 2017, he finally took over the reins from MSD to become the new skipper across all formats. © BCCL For a man who came and conquered the very world that was once ruled by MSD, it would have been understandable if Kohli and his predecessor didn't see eye to eye or had some understanding issues. But, thankfully for Indian cricket, there was none of it. Despite the change in leadership, Kohli and Dhoni didn't let it affect their relationship. In fact, the duo further strengthened their bond on the back of trust and mutual respect. Irrespective of Kohli's position in the team as captain, Dhoni is still seen guiding the bowlers, setting up the field and even calling for Decision Review System (DRS) in the matches. On the other hand, at a time when cricket pundits and fans were questioning MSD's place in Team India, Kohli threw his weight behind the former Indian captain and tipped him to stage a comeback. © Reuters Today, whether it's family outings or discussions on the field, the two cricket icons are inseparable. However, the scenario, 10 years ago, wasn't as rosy as it seems now. If Dilip Vengsarkar - the former chief selector of BCCI's national selection committee - is to be believed, Dhoni was not in favour of handing Kohli his debut with Team India in 2008. Vengsarkar claims that he wanted to hand Kohli his Team India debut during the ODI series against Sri Lanka that year, but then skipper Dhoni and coach Gary Kirsten challenged their decision and favoured S Badrinath's selection ahead of the Delhi dasher. But, Vengsarkar stood his ground and the world witnessed the debut of Kohli. © Reuters "I felt this was an ideal situation to include Kohli in the squad. Although the other four selectors agreed with my decision, Gary Kirsten and MS Dhoni were reluctant as they had not seen much of Kohli. I told them that I have seen him and we have to include him in the team,” Vengsarkar revealed. “I knew that they were keen on keeping S Badrinath in the team because he was a Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player. If Kohli would have come in, Badrinath would have been dropped. N Srinivasan was the BCCI treasurer at that time. He was upset that Badrinath was dropped because he was their player,” he added. © BCCL Vengsarkar further claimed that it was his decision to select Kohli and drop Badrinath that made then BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan very angry, ultimately costing him his job as India's chief selector. "When Kohli was preferred over Badrinath, Srinivasan was not happy. He got fed up as his player was kept out and he questioned me as to how I didn't pick Badri? I replied that I had gone to watch the Emerging Tour in Australia and found this boy Kohli exceptional. So I have picked him in the team and Srinivasan reasoned that Badrinath had scored 800 runs for Tamil Nadu. I told him he will get a chance and angry Srinivasan asked "when he will get a chance, he is 29-years-old? I replied: 'Whenever the time comes'," he disclosed. © Reuters "Srinivasan then made (Kris) Srikkanth the chairman and I was sent home. That was the end of my career as a selector," he concluded. Though Vengsarkar's decision that cost him his job didn't bear fruit immediately as Kohli was dismissed for just 12 runs on his debut, but the right-hander made his mark with a half-century in the fourth game of the series which eventually turned out to be an historic ODI series win for India in Sri Lanka. Today, given Kohli's growing list of batting records and ever-improving stint as captain, Vengsarkar will surely be proud of his decision which cost him his job, but gave Indian cricket an indispensable player who continues to rise in stature with every game.
  17. With the highly-anticipated players' auction already setting the ball rolling, the Indian Premier League (IPL) once again got the cricket fans excited after releasing the much-talked about anthem for its eleventh edition, slated to begin from 7 April. In a unique partnership, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Star India collaborated for the very first time to create the anthem for this year's campaign. Taking to Twitter, Star Sports - the official broadcaster of the IPL - released the promotional video. Still some time for the tournament to start but as expected a brilliant campaign to kick it off @IPL @StarSportsIndia pic.twitter.com/NgivOugSqB — Mahendra Singh Dhoni (@msdhoni) 12 March 2018 Titled 'Best vs Best', the gripping lyrics, swanky tunes and touching scenes of the promotional video successfully encompass the spirit of the IPL - a tournament which takes pride in bringing the best in business together. The anthem has been released in five languages - Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, Kannada and Telugu - across all platforms (TV, radio and web). A talented ensemble of artists worked on the anthem including South African film maker Dan Mace, music director Raajeev V Bhalla and vocalist Siddhart Basrur - who sung the anthem in five different languages.

  18. Well, a fighter does need all of their body parts to work in that line of profession, and I'm saying that in the least offensive way. But, then there are people out there who don't play by the rules and prove everyone wrong in the best way possible. Here we have Nick Newell, who is a fighter in more than one sense. The 31-year-old MMA fighter from Milford, Connecticut, was born with congenital amputation of his left arm, which finishes just below his elbow. But, he did not let that come in the way of his dream and proved everyone who thought he wouldn't stand a chance in a normal fight wrong, in the best possible way. Bloody Elbow Recently he beat Vicente Luque, at LFA35 in the first freaking round, or you could say, he beat him single-handedly. (Okay, I'm sorry) Reportedly, Newell was able to take Luque down and started a rear-naked choke. It seems like the submission was too much for the American-born Brazilian MMA fighter as he tapped at the 2:10 mark. In his post-match speech, he said, “Life is a cold hard place. It will chew you up and spit you out. But if you make it your bitch, you can do anything. You can either become a victim of circumstances or you can create your own. I'm out here, I'm creating my own circumstances. I'm one of the best fighters in the world and I belong in the UFC. That's it. That's final. I gave you 14 reasons why I belong in the UFC. I'm one of the best fighters in the world and I proved it 14 times.” Youtube Out of his 15 fights, this became his 14th win. Even though the fact that he only has one hand doesn't really slow him down, he does need time to prepare his body for fights. He fought after a long time since his last match was over two years ago. He announced his retirement from MMA following his win against Tom Marcellino at WSOF 24 in 2015, saying his body couldn't keep up with the sport any longer. Facebook But, he sure as hell isn't giving up anytime soon. Now, we all hope he soon gets his contract with the UFC.
  19. The people who are grow the food we eat work in trying conditions. Cultivating a crop is not child's play and our farmers deserve all the respect they can get. In a country like India, where the sun scorches the earth for most of the year, you automatically learn to do the best with the resources you have, and our farmers have been toiling it out commendably. Armed with demands and marching in discipline.#KisanMarch #KisanLongMarch #CPIM #RedSalute pic.twitter.com/levWc7pEwm — vijesh krishnankutty (@vijeshpk) March 12, 2018 A case in point is Lakshman Bhasre who has marched from Nasik to Mumbai along with his fellow farmers. Walking for a straight 7 days in the sweltering heat, with feet bleeding from walking too much, the farmers made our hearts cry with their plight and perseverance. While they had stocked up on food and other necessary amenities for the way, one major challenge was the lack of electricity and plug points to charge phones. Phones are no longer a luxury but a necessity today. Lakshman Bhasire, who hails from Tryumbakeshwar Taluka, just taught everyone a lesson in jugaad. The man has been walking with a small solar panel propped on his head. The hours of walking in the sun keep the panel charged. He has not only been charging his phone but also provides charging for other people's phones. Favourite photo from #KisanLongMarch this afternoon -- Farmers have no access to electricity so Lakshman Bhasre from Tryumbakeshwar Taluka has been marching for 6 days with a tiny solar panel on his head. He uses it to charge his phone and help other marchers charge theirs. pic.twitter.com/3He32abd4z — Pragya Tiwari (@PragyaTiwari) March 12, 2018 As we sit in the comfort of our air-conditioned homes and offices and whine about having to sit in our air-conditioned cars in traffic jams, our farmers are fighting in the worst possible conditions and yet fighting ways to keep afloat.
  20. Shashi Tharoor is our very own English teacher. He has improved our vocabulary more than any teacher we've ever had in school. Just because of him, we know the meanings of words and phrases like “exasperating farrago of distortions” and “rodomontade”. Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations&outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalst — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) May 8, 2017 To all the well-meaning folks who send me parodies of my supposed speaking/writing style: The purpose of speaking or writing is to communicate w/ precision. I choose my words because they are the best ones for the idea i want to convey, not the most obscure or rodomontade ones! — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) December 13, 2017 These tweets went so viral, that since then, all big and complicated words just became associated with him, and he became the 'rodomontade guy'. Well, we know for sure that no one in their right mind would question his English skills, but what if we turn the tables a little bit. His English is exceptional, but what about his Hindi? © Twitter We finally got something we did not even know we needed until now – Shashi Tharoor taking a Hindi vocabulary test. This already sounds so interesting, and we haven't even got to his hilarious answers. All thanks to Akash Banerjee, host of the political satire show 'Why So Serious?', we got Mr. Tharooraurus giving funny definitions to Hindi words, all while throwing so much shade at BJP, that we couldn't even handle it. Let's begin. After taking a 'thandi goli', Akash explained the rules of this very important quiz; he was going to throw 20 words in Hindi, and see how he does. Let's see some of the most hilarious ones. His definition of 'hunkaar' with a bad pun. Yes, it was bad, and yes, he admitted it as well. Now, comes the best part – he was asked to explain what 'Jumla' means. And, we got the prefect reply from Shashi Tharoor. Acceptable answer? Don't know. Perfect and most hilarious answer? For sure. Now, comes the best part of the whole freaking interview – his answer to what 'ache din' means. “It is an elusive concept, the Greek equivalent is 'chimera', it is something people talk about, but no one has ever seen. It floats in the illusion distance and as you approach it, it recedes further and further away.” © YouTube Wow, but wait for the part that tops it – “It is copyright by a certain man with a beard and a certain man with a potbelly and not so much hair and they will keep offering it to you to entice you to follow them like a Pied Piper of New Delhi.” That is the best definition of 'ache din' anyone has ever given and anyone will ever give.

  21. Since the first time we saw the 'Avengers', we couldn't help but get connected with the Marvel Cinematic Universe personally. Every super-hero film only increased our devotion to the franchise and now with a new Avenger movie in the pipeline, we just can't keep calm. (c) Marvel It's been almost a decade since the fans formed a solid bond with this franchise and it's the same with the crew of the film. After working for over 10 years together, Robert Downey Jr. shared how 'The Avengers' team felt more like a family now and we have no trouble believing him. (c) BCCL The 52-year-old actor, who has left a strong imprint on our mind as 'Iron Man' in various Marvel movies, said that the whole cast and crew are looking forward to the release of the forthcoming 'Avengers: Infinity War'. (c) Giphy Talking about it he said, “We're going to pull out the stops, and stop exploring conventions, and look to do stuff where we go, 'Oh, but if we do that, that's very, very definitive'.” Isn't that really great? (c) 9e3K "We're like a family now. Ten years later, we're hanging out and having lunch, and kind of wondering when the draft is going to come in. Which one of us bites it and when?" Downey Jr added. Well, the 'Avengers' film is nothing less than watching a star-studded affair with a talented cast like Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo.
  22. How much do you think a cab driver earns in a year? Maybe just enough to provide his children with basic education and necessities of life, right? But enough to build a hospital? Definitely not. At first glance, Saidul Laskar looks like just another taxi driver struggling to make ends meet but after you get to know about his mission and vision in life, you'd realise he is like no other man. © Twitter Saidul's sister was only 17 when she died of a chest infection in 2004 because he couldn't afford to get her treated in a hospital. Her death obviously left him crushed and the fact that he couldn't find an affordable hospital in time gave him a new purpose in life; he vowed that he would not let anybody in his village suffer the same way as his sister. That's where his journey of building an affordable hospital in his village, Punri (Kolkata) began. But how can a taxi driver have enough money to do so? Saidul decided to convince his wife to sell off whatever jewellery they had to raise around Rs. 3 lakh to buy the land for the hospital. His wife showed immense faith in him and handed over all her jewellery. © Facebook He then moved on to the next step: raising funds by requesting donations from his passengers. Now it's pretty obvious that not every passenger would have contributed to his mission so no wonder he had to struggle for about 12 years. © Twitter However, there was one donor who decided to give up her entire first month's salary. 23-year-old mechanical engineer Shrishti Ghosh and her mother boarded Saidul's cab and learned about his goal. At that time she handed over a Rs 100 note to him but also took down his number too. Soon after, she came to him and gave him Rs. 25,000. And after struggling, saving up and raising funds for 12 long years, Saidul was finally able to achieve his dream last month when the Marufa Smriti Welfare Foundation — the hospital named after his late sister opened. And for her generous contribution, Saidul specially invited Shrishti to inaugurate the hospital. © Times of India This hospital, which will serve people from at least 100 neighbouring villages, is the first one in the area and began its outdoor department operations recently with six beds. However, it is expected to have another 30 beds in the next six months and many locals are coming forward to donate money so that the same is achieved. NGOs and other organisations are also contributing in kind such as in the form of an X-Ray machine and an ECG machine. But this tough journey isn't over yet. The next step is to collaborate with a nursing school and help train local girls to work as nurses at the hospital. We can't help but salute Saidul for his mission and his dedication to achieving his selfless dream for the benefit of other people.
  23. Yes, most of the time the world seems like the worst possible place ever, but every once in a while, something good happens and everything seems alright. Sorry, it got too deep. Do you believe in karma? It honestly seems impossible, but it's actually true that if you put out good in the world, good things will happen in return, because obviously every good and honest person deserves that. I know it's getting too deep, but this story of a good person being rewarded calls for just that, because honestly these kind of stories do make everyone's day. The story involves an auto driver and one particular passenger who improved his life for good. A passenger forgot her bag in an auto which had about â¹80,000 cash and other important documents. But, her auto driver, identified as Amit Gupta, came to her rescue. So basically, about two months ago Sarla Namboodiri, who runs Arunodaya English School in Chembur for primary and preprimary kids, took Gupta's auto to reach her car that was parked a little away from the institute. But, she accidentally left her bag which contained the cash, which was collected as school fees, along with her credit and debit cards, Aadhar card, driving licence, PAN card, car registration documents, two cell phones and moreover, even her house keys. But, just as she was contemplating calling the police to report her missing stuff, Gupta showed up at her school, about an hour later, to return all of her stuff. According to her, another passenger had spotted the bag and he remembered it was Namboodiri's. She said, “After he left, it struck me that I hadn't taken his contact details and I wanted to do something for him.” And, that she did. TOI She continued her search and was finally successful, and she decided to reward him by taking the responsibility of educating his children. She said, “I found out that he wasn't doing well financially. I learnt that he had two kids but couldn't afford to send them to school. Being a former teacher and with my experience in the education sector, I decided to provide his children free education.” But wait, there's more good news. Gupta was felicitated and awarded Rs 10,000. Namboodiri added, “Had Gupta not brought my bag back, I would have had to face a lot of trouble.”
  24. Being a celebrity means that you and your life is always in the limelight and everything is up for speculation, and most of the time, it is still bearable and okay, but sometimes people cross a line. Yes, they chose this life but people also need to respect their privacy, after all they are also human, and not everything is supposed to be shared with the public. Twitter/Irrfan Khan Recently, Irrfan Khan revealed that he's suffering from a rare disease, probably because he appreciates his fans so much that he wanted to share everything with them, the good and the bad. But, the problem is that this was all he shared, but rumours started flying and there were way too many different theories since he posted his news on Twitter. ðð» pic.twitter.com/JXD8NKwH3D — Irrfan (@irrfank) March 5, 2018 Yes, everyone is curious and everyone wants to support him, but this is a private matter and he will share more when he feels the time is right. Making up random stories and starting rumours about different diseases he is suffering from just seems very insensitive right now. Youtube Soon after his tweet, rumours of him having a brain tumour went viral. Even after clarifications from his friend, the speculation continued and everyone was just focussing all their energy on the wrong thing. It seems like the rumours got so bad that Irrfan's wife, Sutapa Sikdar has finally spoken about the issue. She wrote a heartfelt message for everyone on Facebook, addressing everyone's concerns, thanking them for all the prayers and apologising for all the secrecy (which she doesn't need to, tbh). Here's the post: This is so well put, hopefully everyone will give the family time and privacy to deal with it. This is a time to just pray for him and he has doctors to figure out his condition, so no doesn't need media and random people on Twitter to diagnose him.
  25. Men like Suniel Shetty (who're ageing in reverse) have started a style-revolution of sorts. Even at 56, the salt-and-pepper good looker is in no way dressing like he's close to that age or at least, fast approaching it. Think of every outfit he's worn, how he's paired them and you'd think that there's something wrong with your eyes. But that's in the past. Well, for now, he's not seeming to look back at all and is struggling to escape from the 20-something dressing. If his recent appearance is any indication, the actor's in the mood for iconic pieces of menswear right now and is a league away from the ballgame of dated, cliche clothing. © Viral Bhayani Here's the thing: this is an insane outfit we're seeing here. While there's nothing extraordinary or even remotely experimental about this — it's no droop either. Minimal effort and maximal impact have always been Shetty's forte. And over time, he's only gotten better and has now, turned to iconic pieces that can summarize our teenage years. Boys and men, Suniel Shetty too, is a part of the Canvas Shoes Club! © Viral Bhayani Now, there's a chance you'd say, "Converse shoes are dated, bro". Then let's inform you, few pieces of fashion can never go out of style, including a pair of easy-to-maintain and washable canvas shoes. Come dirty sneakers or crisp white kicks, canvas shoes won't see an exit. And well, Shetty's also paired the pair quite well — with a well-fitted knit and classic jeans. Which may be a little too wide-legged for some, but are completely age-appropriate for him. Much like Saif Ali Khan, looks like, Suniel Shetty too is into his own version of dad jeans. And since Shetty's son, Ahan is all about canvas footwear too, clearly — he's going to raid his dad's closet very soon. © Viral Bhayani All in all, if you're looking at easy dressing without the fear of judgment, we suggest you turn to this outfit here.
