  1. Shahid Kapoor had epitomised #outfitgoals for us in 2017. Be it the funky casuals he is known for, or the tailored to perfection red carpet looks, he's got it right every time, and we have noticed and noted it all. Which is why whenever he starts off with a new trend, we can't help but pay attention to that. The latest one, however, has confused us no end. Take a look and we're sure you'll agree. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to the bizarre and weird, in terms of trends, we usually just rely on Ranveer (and he delivers, consistently, thank you very much). This time, however, Shahid seems to have taken it upon himself to do that and jumped right in. Now, knowing the Shahid we all are familiar with, we'd have said that the poor thing probably was in a hurry and forgot to tie up the drawstrings of his track pants, but we are not doing that. There is a reason. © Viral Bhayani Last year, Shahid was spotted pulling off the same stunt at an event. He was dressed in all black, with a super cool ripped, distressed overall look - but all we could focus on were his long-ass white drawstrings that he chose to hang loose. We were equally confused then, but now we don't think it was an accident after all, nope. Shahid's newest obsession is the 'Nada'. Yes, people, it has happened. The latest entrant in the 2018 lookbook, is the protector of the sanctity of the good old Pyjama - the 'Nada'. © Viral Bhayani Why, though? We are compelled to ask. Not that it's a style blunder. Hell, we even think it has the potential to be the next big thing, but that is hardly doing anything as far as quenching our curiosity goes. We wonder what inspired that? He probably did get late the last time (actually scratch that, celebrities don't let 'getting late' come in the way of the way they dress, duh). He clearly just didn't bother tying it up, and looked at the mirror, and thought to himself, "Huh, interesting. Let's give you a taste of the limelight today, Nada. Not too shabby for me, nope!" © Viral Bhayani Getting past the drawstrings, though, we love his comfy AF airport look. Athleisure at its finest, we say. The fitted white T-shirt paired with the black track pants with the bold white stripe is effortless. The way Shahid has just flung over his matching track jacket over the fly AF leather sling bag (that we love) is a lesson in how to accessorize your look with your extra clothes. The white sneakers, the black watch, the black headband and the tinted sunnies - all of it looks like a part of a kit. © Viral Bhayani You know what, Shahid? If you want to bring the 'Nada' to the forefront, go ahead. We have had our reservations, but you have shown us that you can make it work, and we are sold. We are keeping an eye out to find out who else embraces this trend.
  2. You know you are in for some interesting scoop, the moment you hear the name Ram Gopal Varma. If anyone tells you that he does not know who RGV is, look at him closely because that's what a liar looks like. There is no way on earth that anyone can forget or not know RGV; the man is famous for his nasty tweets more than the movies he makes. But, let's keep that discussion for some other day and focus of his directorial skills. © Twitter Ram Gopal Varma is one fine director who is known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to making good movies. After giving us movies like 'Sarkar', 'Rangeela', 'Veerappan', 'Satya' and 'Nishabd'; RGV is back in action with his upcoming project and the cast will definitely leave you spellbound. Varma has worked with none other than Mia Malkova, the popular adult film star, who has helped many boys evolve into men. © Instagram Honestly, we were surprised to an extent that we thought this can't be true, but it is and Mia has confirmed this news herself, by sharing the movie's poster on Twitter. Interestingly, the title of the movie is 'God, *** and Truth' and this poster is totally NSFW. Indian film maker Ram Gopal Varma shot a video with me in Europe titled GOD , *** and TRUTH I will be the 2nd adult star after @SunnyLeone to be shot by an Indian feature film maker @Rgvzoomin pic.twitter.com/0lfaipKhAA — Mia Malkova (@MiaMalkova) 11 January 2018 The movie has been shot in Europe. Taking to Twitter, Mia wrote “Indian film maker Ram Gopal Varma shot a video with me in Europe titled 'GOD, *** and TRUTH'.” She further wrote, “I will be the 2nd adult star after @SunnyLeone to be shot by an Indian feature film maker.” Well, here Mia is kind of wrong because Varma has not worked on any film with Sunny and the man tweeted the same himself. He wrote, “Hey Mia it was such an elevating and thought provoking experience to film #GodSexTruth. I never shot with @SunnyLeone but will never forget the experience of shooting 'GOD, *** and TRUTH'.” Hey Mia it was such an elevating and thought provoking experience to film #GodSexTruth ..I never shot with @SunnyLeone but will never forget the experience of shooting GOD, *** and Truth https://t.co/rz5iwxHarI — Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) 11 January 2018 In fact, Varma also praised Mia and said she is the painting, while he is just the frame maker. @MiaMalkova I Thank you for the person you are and I admire and respect you for the way you project your thinking ..You are the painting and I am just a frame maker #GodSexTruth https://t.co/ykVvtOnUwP — Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) 11 January 2018 Well, the poster looks highly intriguing and Mia looks beautiful as hell. While, we can't wait for the movie to release already, watch out for this space as the trailer is going to launch on January 16, 2018 at 9 AM.
  3. ISLAMABAD: Deputy Chairman Senate Maulana AbdulGhafoor Haideri said on Friday that he does not see the Parliament completing its term under present circumstances. Speaking to newsmen at the Parliament House, Haideri said that if there comes a change in Balochistan, then he also does not see Senate elections being held. "The Imran-Zardari-Qadri troika seeks to topple the government before March," the Senate deputy chairman said. He said that Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) is in opposition in Balochistan and the opposition is supposed to give tough time to the government and topple it. "The matter can move towards Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for preventing elections in the Senate," Haideri said. He said the JUI-F chief has rested the decision, whether or not to bring no-confidence move in Balochistan Assembly, with the provincial chapter of his party. The Senate deputy chairman said Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and a faction of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have been making joint efforts for change of government in Balochistan.
  4. Netflix has been on a roll these days, and doesn't think twice before trolling people on Twitter. Remember this brutal callout? To the 53 people who've watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you? — Netflix US (@netflix) December 11, 2017 And then continued trolling people in the replies. Now, it looks like Netflix India has also been inspired and used one of the biggest memes to make the best promotional video for a show ever. Please provide #Aadhaar details for more information. pic.twitter.com/siuuLr1I06 — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) January 4, 2018 Combing two of the most trending things on the planet, Netflix took the perfect dig at the biometric identification system Aadhaar and honestly, won the internet in the process. I thought we had seen all the Adhaar Card jokes that could've been made last year, but Netflix brilliantly pulled this one out; A joke so cool that it would put all the others to shame. The person behind this promo clip definitely needs a raise as of this minute. © Twitter/Netflix India The clip, posted by Netflix India on Twitter, came from 'Hang the DJ', an episode from the fourth season of the most talked about show of the moment 'Black Mirror'. The episode revolves around characters using a device that helps them find romantic partners, and no it's not Tinder. This particular device dictates how long the partners can stay together, and it comes with an 'expiry date' of sorts. In the 19-second clip posted by Netflix, one of the protagonists asks the device how long his relationship will last, and the unexpected answer he gets is 'Link Aadhaar Card To Find Out'. Wow, that sucks, doesn't it? Adhaar has literally taken over our lives! It's absolutely amazing how Netflix India incorporated one of the biggest running jokes in the country to one of the biggest TV shows at the moment. People on Twitter loved the shot Netflix took on Adhaar that the tweet already has over 3k retweets in less than a day. A round of applause, please. pic.twitter.com/QodTKk2N3P — José Covaco (@HoeZaay) January 4, 2018 Very gutsy, indeed. Cannot believe a major corporation would have the balls to take stand. This isn't common in India. Well done! — Saptarshi (@hatfullofrain) January 4, 2018 We all are. pic.twitter.com/x7aVZqGtSt — Dharmesh Gandhi (@dharmeshG) January 4, 2018 How to join Netflix: A Tutorial. pic.twitter.com/zZGkaQlgfd — Neeraj Vohra (@neerajvohra) January 4, 2018 Someone won't be happy. pic.twitter.com/NBxaph1klK — Dhiraj (@AAPlogical) January 4, 2018 True. you know you got it wrong when even Netflix is hustling you @UIDAI — rishabh (@soul_LFC) January 4, 2018 That gif, though. Thanks for saying it like it is. pic.twitter.com/0HNpzSlG4z — Ratnabali B (@reallybadhairda) January 4, 2018 Aa gaye? Aache din? pic.twitter.com/lO8OpafiSt — Bibzz (@Bibin_Alexander) January 5, 2018 If you don't have a Netflix membership, then I feel like this is enough to convince anyone to splurge a little bit every month. Well done Netflix, here, have some more appreciation from our side.
  5. Whether it's a celebrity, a popular personality or a member from the Royal family, it's difficult to imagine them getting nervous while talking to someone, because it's usually the other way round. Our hands start shaking when we get a chance to click pictures with them or just get to stand next to them. But, Prince Harry was visibly nervous, when he got the chance to interview former President of the United States of America, Barack Obama and we can totally understand why. © Twitter When you share the same frame with Mr. Obama, and are sitting on the interviewer's chair, it's tough to keep calm and speak while trying not to sound like an over excited fan. As a part of guest editorship for BBC Radio 4's 'Today' programme, Prince Harry interviewed Obama, where he was asked to share memories from the day when he left office and his plans for his post-presidential life. The complete video of the interview will release next week on December 27, but the teaser is out and all we can say is that Obama and Prince Harry get full points for setting new standards of bromance. 'Do I need a British accent?' @BarackObama is interviewed by Prince Harry for his guest edit of @BBCr4today. In this warm-up, the prince jokingly warns the ex-president he'll get "the face" if he pauses too long between answers #r4today pic.twitter.com/2887dGlJkG — BBC Radio 4 Today (@BBCr4today) December 17, 2017 Obama is hands down one of the coolest leaders we have seen so far, and this interview only goes on to prove the same. “Do I need to speak faster because I am slow speaker,” Obama said and before Prince Harry could finish answering that, Obama floored us all when he jokingly said “Do I need a British accent?” To which Harry said that if he takes long pauses during his speech, he will get 'the face' to which Obama laughed and said “I don't want to see that face.” © Reuters According to Kensington Palace, the interview was recorded in September in Toronto during the Invictus Games. The conversation with @BarackObama includes his memories of the day he left office and his hopes for his post-presidential life, including his plans to focus on cultivating the next generation of leadership through the @ObamaFoundation. — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) December 17, 2017 In fact, Obama had volunteered to interview a nervous prince Harry when he told him that, “You're excited about this, I'm nervous about this, that's what's quite funny.” © Reuters Barry and Harry have been friends for some time now, with the latter even attending the inaugural summit of the Obama Foundation in Chicago. Obama also congratulated Harry for his engagement with Meghan Markle and the chances are that the Obamas might be attending the royal wedding next year. Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement. We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together. — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 27, 2017 Well, after looking at this killer bromance, we are wondering what happened to Obama's best bud, Joe Biden? Can someone smell Biden's heart burning with jealousy?
  6. If you've ever seen John Cena's Instagram account, you would know it's a piece of art that no one understands. It's just a bunch of pictures, that don't really go together, with no explanation whatsoever. And, all along that was his intention. He wants to leave it all up to interpretation, like a true artist. Or maybe, just maybe, he's in all the pictures, but we just can't see him? Wait, is that it? Have I cracked the code? I feel like no one really pays much attention to his weird AF Instagram, but a few days ago he posted one of his obscure images with no explanation that got everyone talking. Actually, it was mostly just Indians who were confused and proud at the same time. The picture in question is of none other than Rahul Dravid, along with one of his inspirational quotes, and obviously, all the desi people caught on. A post shared by John Cena (@johncena) on Dec 10, 2017 at 1:50am PST Obviously, the whole comment section started flooding with Indians appreciating how one legend is acknowledging another legend. John himself didn't say a word, but all the people in the comments are thanking him, but that's still kind of nice. Even Varun Dhawan decided to share his views, by commenting on the picture. Everyone gets excited whenever an international star like him references India in any way, and rightly so. But wait, that's not it. Johnny has posted another picture on his Instagram that has attracted a horde of Indians once again. This time it's a picture of Amitabh Bachchan and Kapil Dev. A post shared by John Cena (@johncena) on Dec 13, 2017 at 7:41am PST Well, it seems like after years of suppressing it, John Cena is finally showing his love for cricket and Bollywood through his Instagram, and we're so here for it, it's okay Johnny, we love you no matter what. Varun Dhawan is also back, but he just liked the picture this time. And now, my personal favourite comment on the picture – Lurkdaddy, I have so many questions. Who was this directed!at – John Cena, Kapil Dev or Amitabh Bachchan? Why do you want to see their 'bobs'? And, what about the vagene? Are you okay, man? Well, but one thing's for sure now, John Cena loves India as much as all the Indians love him. Finally, we're receiving some love, doesn't it feel nice?
  7. The newly weds have a luxury apartment waiting for them in Worli area of Mumbai Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who tied the knot in Italy on December 11 in a fairytale ceremony, will soon move into their dream house in Mumbai. The newly weds have a luxury apartment waiting for them in Worli area of Mumbai, purchased for a whopping INR 34 crore, according to Indian media. Omkar Realtors website The 7,171-square-foot apartment, which Kohli bought in 2016, faces the Arabian Sea and is said to be located in the most luxurious of the three towers of the Omkar 1973 Towers complex. Omkar Realtors website According to details shared by Architectural Digest, the four-bedroom apartment has a few defining features: a ceiling height of 13 feet that creates a large space, and decks or verandas that extend from each bedroom. Omkar Realtors website Other features include a grand entrance lobby, dedicated spa for pets, fitness and sports facilities, a sky terrace for hosting parties and dedicated areas for kids ? including a crèche, pool, and play area. Omkar Realtors website The couple will also have a familiar face as a neighbour ? fellow cricketer Yuvraj Singh also purchased an apartment in the same tower in 2013. Kohli and Anushka will host a reception in New Delhi for relatives on December 21, followed by a celebration in Mumbai on December 26 to be attended by Bollywood stars and cricketers. They will then honeymoon in South Africa before moving into their new home in Mumbai, the cradle of India´s multi-billion-dollar Hindi film industry.
  8. It feels great to see people turning towards doing more and more compound lifts while realizing the benefits these movements have to offer. One of the best compound lifts that people have started doing is the deadlift. People now know that the deadlift is one of the best exercises they can work on to hit their upper and lower body. As someone who loves to deadlift and having pulled 200kgs in a competition at 75 kg (bodyweight) and having helped people break their PRs (personal records) through precise coaching, you could say that I know a thing or two about how to improve your deadlift numbers. Only Do Deadlifts To Get Better At Deadlifts? While it's certainly true that practice makes perfect, but including a bit of assistance work will make your form even better. It's always an intelligent decision to train the synergetic muscle groups that work together in a compound lift. Here are 5 such exercises. 1) Back Extensions © Tnation This can be done either on a hyperextension machine. This exercise trains your lower back effectively which many people don`t train as much as they should. A strong lower back is must to move heavy poundage in a deadlift. Beginners can use their body weight while advanced and intermediates must use heavier weights. 2) Barbell rows © Thinkstock This exercise will not only teach you how to take barbell off the floor but also teach you to maintain a neutral spine, which is critical during a deadlift. Apart from the benefits mentioned above, it hits your lats, traps and even the biceps, thereby making the entire upper body musculature stronger, for an explosive pull. 3) Heavy Shrugs © bodybuilding wizard Strong traps are critical for maintaining posture/stabilization during a deadlift. One of the best ways to build massive traps is shrugs. Do heavy shrugs with only a barbell since it will have a carryover effect to your deadlift. 4) Train abs/Obliques © Thinkstock Both these muscle groups act as antagonist stabilizers during a deadlift. In simple terms- they will help you to not hyperextend your back which most people end up doing, putting additional stress on the lumbar spine. You will see some people pulling huge loads on deadlifts even without a belt. Those guys usually have very strong abs. Training abs separately 1-3 times a week for 10-20 minutes serves the purpose well. The goal here is not to build six or eight pack but to help increase your lift. 5) Train Glutes © tnation Exercises such as glute bridges, hip thrusts, high step ups, Dumbbell sumo squat train the glutes very effectively. Glutes are the synergists during a deadlift. Synergist muscle group stabilizes the joint through which the movement is taking place. Since most working people sit on their glutes all day, they tend to be weaker and un-activated. Doing the exercises mentioned above will give you a nice booty, apart from increasing your deadlift.

  9. If you were handpicked as one of the few buyers for a rare supercar, you would obviously want to hold on to it, right? But, John Cena is not like everyone, and doesn't care about that, apparently. Ford had personally chosen buyers for the $450,000-plus Ford GT supercar, and John Cena was one of the few lucky people who managed to get their hands on this super exclusive supercar. © Ford But, he didn't waste any time and soon sold this car for cash, and has ended up with legal troubles now. But, really though, he's a millionaire, why did he need cash so bad that he breached his contract. Moreover, if he had waited to sell the car, he would have made a hell lot of money because one, it's a rare supercar and their value just increases over time, and second, who wouldn't to buy John Cena's car if they can afford it. And then, Ford got wind of Cena flipping the car before he was legally allowed to, and has decided to sue him. Apparently, the 40-year old star was bound by a contract that specified that is supposed to hold on to the car for at least 2 years. The lawsuit, which has been filed in U.S. District Court in Michigan, reportedly says John got a massive profit from the sale. “Mr Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorised resale flip of the vehicle, and Ford has suffered additional damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale.” Okay, but honestly, if John Cena didn't say “You can't sue me!” at least once when he got the news, that would be the biggest disappointment of this highly disappointing year. Even though he is worth millions of dollars, he, apparently, sold the car and some property just to pay bills. And, if is actually in a financial crunch, this whole thing has probably backfired on him, as Ford now wants all the proceeds from the sale as well as damages. He was interested in buying the car, but it wasn't like Ford just handed it over to him because he's famous. Those who were interested in purchasing had to apply for it, with more than 7,000 doing so. Those who were selected for the ultimate prize includes artist Deadau5, actor Scott Eastwood, American NASCAR driver Joey Logano, baseballer C. J. Wilson and YouTuber Shmee150. He also appeared in a YouTube video on the Bella Twins' channel promoting the 2017 Ford GT, back in October. Even though he couldn't properly fit inside the car, he had nothing but praise for the car's carbon fibre materials and stunning aerodynamics. He also noted it's the most powerful V6 ever made. Throughout the video, he was so happy talking about the car, it's hard to understand why he sold it so suddenly.
  10. Photo: Indian Meteorological Department KARACHI: A powerful cyclone that has killed over a dozen people across India and Sri Lanka is expected to show effects in Pakistan's coastal areas, the Met Office said on Saturday. Cyclone Ockhi is expected to enter Arabian Sea from south east and will impact Karachi, Badin and Thatta on December 3 and 4 in the form of cloud cover, Geo News quoted the Met Office as saying. The effects will begin to subside from December 4, the Met Office added. Cyclone Ockhi barrelled into the Lakshwadeep islands in southwestern India on Saturday after drenching the neighboring states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, claiming so far around 14 lives with many fishermen still feared trapped at sea. Authorities including the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), India?s Coast Guard and Navy have rescued about 223 fishermen and evacuated thousands of people from cyclone hit areas, officials said, as they continued their operations on Saturday. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken to the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, assuring him of support operations including necessary funds, according to local media. Ockhi is expected to travel north towards Mumbai and Gujarat in the next 48 hours, according to Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) Director S. Sudevan in Trivandrum, though it is likely to lose intensity. ?The intensity of the wind may come down and the cyclone could change into depression,? Sudevan said, adding fishermen have been warned not go to the sea for the next few days as waves are likely to be 3-5 meters (12-15 feet) high.
  11. ISLAMABAD: Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah shared that he doesn?t see the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as any ?threat? in the upcoming general elections. While speaking on Geo News show, Naya Pakistan, on Friday, the CM said that ?PTI has been trying to win over Karachi but they remain popular only in small pockets now.? He said that the confidence comes from their support base. ?People know that no one can serve them better than PPP [Pakistan Peoples Party]. We have crowded out everybody.? ?At one point MQM [Muttahida Qaumi Movement] used to have total control over Karachi but we have encroached upon their support base,? he said. Weighing in on the MQM-Pakistan and Pak Sarzameen Party saga, he said that everyone knew that an alliance was brewing. ?I was personally happy with the decision and was not surprised.? However, he shared that he was disappointed as the alliance was so short-lived. ?It didn?t even last 24 hours and it became very bitter,? adding that they even tried to drag PPP into it. 'Have no problem with current IG' Murad also clarified that Sindh government has no problem with Inspector General of Police Allah Dino Khawaja. ?We have no problem with the individual but the verdict of the high court. We think that the verdict was in contradiction to the country?s law and Constitution.? Not disappointed by court's verdict in IGP case: CM Sindh 'We have a few reservations [with the IGP's case] but consultations are underway, In a verdict passed on September 7, the Sindh High Court (SHC) dismissed the provincial government's order to remove Khawaja as Sindh Police?s top boss. The two-judge SHC bench also restored the IGP?s powers of transfers and postings within the police department, declaring all postings and transfers carried out in the province after July 7 as illegal. Census process Murad said that when the census process was started he had shared his reservations during a meeting of Council of Common Interests. However, they were dismissed on the grounds that the census process will remain confidential. "I want transparent process so that people can be taken into confidence over it," he said, adding "I can't say if the census process was correct or not." Pakistan?s population reaches 208 million: provisional census results The annual growth rate has been recorded at 2.4pc over a time period of 1998 to 2017 However, he shared that he doesn't want elections to be delayed because of the census results. "It is important to ensure that the democratic process is not derailed and elections should be held on time," he added. Earlier in the day, the Council of Common Interests (CCI) decided to verify five percent results of the census by a third party. Improvements in Karachi On the development in Karachi, he shared that the garbage situation in the city is much better than before as the cleanliness was outsourced to Chinese companies. ?Especially in districts South and East, there is a vast improvement.? He also claimed that there is no tussle between the Sindh government and municipal corporation. The District Municipal Corporation just needs to sign an agreement with Sindh Solid Waste Management, he said, adding ?We even told them we are willing to help them if they want to outsource cleanliness drives.? Murad remarked that the health situation has also improved. With regards to National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases, he shared that the institute was handed over to Sindh government in 2011. ?Federal government should to allot Rs700million funds to the hospital, while we have allotted Rs5.8 billion.? Moreover, plans are in process to inaugurate NICVD satellites all across Sindh, he added. It is not feasible for the government to open a hospital in every village, but we have given special packages to doctors to encourage them to help people in far fetch areas, he said.
  12. Indian cricket fans have witnessed a good rapport and great camaraderie between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli which has also benefitted the Men in Blue. The two cricket icons share mutual respect and have been often seen coming to each other's aids in difficult times. While Dhoni was graceful in making way for the Delhi lad to take over Team India's captaincy, Kohli was later seen returning the favour by throwing his weight behind the Jharkhand cricketer who was recently criticised for a poor run with the willow. © Reuters Similarly, when it comes to their love-interests, it's only understandable that both Anushka Sharma and Sakshi Dhoni are also fond of each other's company. From being snapped together in the stands to accompanying each other on team outings, the two beauties are often seen hanging out together. But, if you thought it was cricket that has bought Anushka and Sakshi together? You're wrong. In fact, long before the duo fell in love with cricketers, they lived in the same town and also shared the same school. © Twitter/@AnushkaSFanCIub It's already known that Anushka comes from a family with Army background. And, unlike other families of the Indian Army personnel, they, too, travelled quite a lot amidst the postings of her father. ð· | New/Old pictures of Anushka with @SaakshiSRawat and #KarneshSharma â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/ecfgRMLSTg — Anushka Sharma FC™ (@AnushkaSFanCIub) November 19, 2017 While they were posted in Assam, Anushka and Sakshi attended the same school together - a fact that was recently highlighted by a popular fan account that also shared pictures of the two women at different stages of their lives. © Twitter/@AnushkaSFanCIub Apart from the photos, Anushka had also revealed details about her time with Sakshi in Assam, early in her career. In a recent interview, the Bollywood actress spoke about her reunion with Sakshi years after graduating. © Twitter/@AnushkaSFanCIub “Sakshi and I lived together in a very small town in Assam. When she told me where she lived, I said wow, I have lived here too! She said I went to this school, I said I went to this school too. And then I found a picture in which Sakshi is dressed as a fairy and I'm dressed in a ghaghara like my favourite idol Madhuri. Sakshi is extremely funny,” Anushka had said.
  13. Wigan Athletic winger Ryan Colclough scored two goals for his team before being substituted so that he could get to hospital in time to see the birth of his son. Colclough left the pitch after his brace in Wigan?s 3-0 third-tier League One victory over Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday after finding out at halftime that his partner had gone into labour. But he stayed on long enough to score his second and secure the victory before leaving for the hospital still in full kit. ?I?m still overwhelmed by it all,? Colclough told BBC Radio Manchester after the birth of his second son, Harley Thomas. ?It?s a great feeling and I can?t have wished it any better.? The 22-year-old said he reached the hospital 30 minutes before the baby arrived. ?We had gone for a scan that day and they said it could be a couple of days, so we weren?t too worried. But when my dad (who was in the stands) gave me the sign I panicked a bit and got there as quickly as I could.? Colclough said he hoped to be back in action for Wigan against Rotherham on Saturday.
  14. Looking at the present scenario, it would be apt to say that the element of freedom of speech is fighting to survive every day in our country. We tend to get offended and our levels of intolerance seem to be spiking. It doesn't matter which field you work in, you will often find someone or the other curbing your right of expression. And filmmakers these days are falling victim to this menace. © Reuters Be it Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' or Ravi Jadhav's 'Nude', people always find a reason to not like something about the content of the films. Which often makes us wonder about what happened to the liberty of expressing your views on the silver screen? Despite being recommended by a 13-member jury to be the opening film for the Indian Panorama section at the 48th International Film Festival of India, director Ravi Jadhav's Marathi film was dropped out of the final list of the major movie festival. © RaviJadhav Films Well, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting dropped the film along with another critically acclaimed Malayalam Film 'S Durga' (which was screened in Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival) from the list of the movies that are being shown this year at IFFI. Such interference makes us question why is there even the need of a jury when I&B Ministry tends to interfere and not even give a clarification about its absurd decision? A lot of debate has been going around this issue and recently filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh who was heading the panel resigned after this decision by the government. However, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who heads the State-owned Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), which co-hosts IFFI, said on Wednesday that Nude was dropped because it was not fully complete, reports The Hindu. © Reuters “Nude is not even complete. Even if it is selected by the jury, if it is not completed and unless it gets a certificate from Board for film Certification, unless the entire procedure is complete and it is ready, it cannot be screened. There will be an issue with the Cinematography Act,” Parrikar said. Amidst all this, the makers of 'Nude' have finally released the teaser of the film which the government surely doesn't want us to see. The clip gives us a peek into the story of a poor woman (Kalyanee Mulay) who leaves her husband and comes to live with her aunt (Chhaya Kadam) in Mumbai. And finally, she comes to the classroom of Sir JJ School of Art in Mumbai to discover what her aunt does to earn her living. Acting Master Naseeruddin Shah plays the role of an art teacher who concludes the teaser saying, “Beta kapada jism pe pehnaya jaata hai...rooh pe nahi aur mein aapne kaam mein rooh khozne ki koshish karta hoon. Samjh mein aaya? (Clothes are meant to cover the body, not the soul. And I, through my art, am attempting to seek the soul. Do you understand?)” Well, the title of the film might lead you to form some judgment but the film takes an artistic route to take us through the journey of the main protagonist of the film. There is absolutely no nudity in the teaser and the story has been presented in a very beautiful manner. 'Nude' might make you uncomfortable as it is questioning life and people in a way, but it doesn't look like a film that should have been banned! How about we don't judge a book by its cover? © RaviJadhav Films Check out the teaser here and let's be glad there is still no censorship of the digital medium (for now) or the teaser wouldn't have seen the light of the day!
  15. Rishi Kapoor. Photo: Reuters/File Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor has expressed a wish to see Pakistan before he dies and hoped his children are able to [go to Pakistan to] see their roots. The actor made the remarks in a late night tweet, where he commented on the statement of Farooq Abdullah, the former chief minister of Indian occupied Kashmir, who recently said the Pakistan side of Kashmir belongs to Pakistan and demanded more autonomy for the Indian side of Kashmir from New Delhi. Kapoor?s tweet stated: Farooq Abdhulla ji, Salaam! Totally agree with you,sir. J&K is ours, and PoK is theirs. This is the only way we can solve our problem. Accept it, I am 65 years old and I want to see Pakistan before I die. I want my children to see their roots. Bas karva Dijiye. Jai Mata Di ! Rishi Kapoor ?concedes?, congratulates Pakistan on victory ?Yes Pakistan, you have defeated us. Well played, outplayed us in all departments! Kapoor, whose activities on Twitter often go viral, originally hails from Peshawar, Pakistan. The family's ancestral haveli is located in the Kissa Khwani Bazaar locality of the old city. The house was constructed by Dewan Basheshwarnath Kapoor, father of Prithviraj Kapoor and grandfather of Raj Kapoor in 1918. The Kapoor family's haveli in Peshawar.

However, after the Partition in 1947, the family moved to India. Rishi is said to have visited the family home in 1990 while shooting a film in Pakistan, according to some media reports.
  16. Angela Merkel ? the leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) ? arrives at the German Parliamentary Society offices before the start of exploratory talks about forming a new coalition government in Berlin, Germany, November 10, 2017. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch BERLIN: German parties cited progress on Friday after three weeks of talks about a three-way coalition, with their leaders due to thrash out remaining differences over transport and climate on Sunday. Chancellor Angela Merkel?s conservatives, which bled support to the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) in the Sept. 24 election, are trying to forge a coalition government with the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and the environmentalist Greens. The chiefs of the parties huddled on Friday evening to review progress in the talks thus far but planned no statements. They had initially hoped to agree on the outlines of a coalition deal by Friday after the two smaller parties dropped demands this week on tax and climate policy but later decided to meet again on Sunday before a final push by full delegations for an outline deal next week. Still, the overall tone was more upbeat than at the end of the previous week. ?We?re heading into the home stretch,? Horst Seehofer, head of the Christian Social Union, the Bavarian sister party of Merkel?s Christian Democrats (CDU), told reporters. Seehofer and FDP leader Christian Lindner said they were optimistic that the exploratory talks could be wrapped up next week, paving the way for weeks of detailed negotiations about the exact terms of a coalition contract. But Michael Kellner, a top negotiator for the Greens, demanded more compromises from the other parties. Giving ground The FDP this week gave ground by agreeing to accept more modest income tax cuts than a campaign pledge of 30-40 billion euros ($35-46 billion) of relief. In an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel on Friday, Lindner also signalled a readiness to compromise on the euro zone?s European Stability Mechanism, moving away from a campaign pledge to shut down the rescue fund. The Greens for their part dropped their insistence on fixed dates for shutting down coal-fired power stations and banning cars with internal combustion engines. But the parties remain divided on whether or not to push for a eurozone budget, on Europe?s banking union and on the use of drones in military conflicts, as well as German participation in foreign military missions, according to draft papers seen by Reuters. They must also agree how to meet key targets for reducing carbon dioxide emissions, how to deal with the pollution caused by diesel cars already on the road, and whether to introduce a law that would ease tax rates for venture capital projects. If the parties fail to reach an agreement, Germany could be forced into a new election that could unsettle investors at a time when many in the European Union are looking to Europe?s biggest economic power for leadership on issues ranging from eurozone governance to transatlantic relations. Merkel, seeking a fourth term as chancellor, hopes to reach agreement in the exploratory talks by November 16. She plans to take the broad outlines of what is agreed to key conservative party leaders in five meetings the following weekend, the CDU said.
  17. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman receives French President Emmanuel Macron in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, November 9, 2017. AFP/Handout via Saudi Royal Palace/Bandar Al-Jaloud DUBAI/RIYADH: French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Riyadh on Thursday for hastily scheduled talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman amid rising tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran, notably over Lebanon and Yemen. Macron ? who flew in from a visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ? had earlier declined to discuss a wave of high-level arrests for corruption in Saudi Arabia but said it was vital to work with the kingdom for the stability of the region. He told a news conference in Dubai that the decision to go to Riyadh had been made on Thursday morning, and that his first face-to-face talks with the prince would focus on ?regional questions, in particular, Yemen and Lebanon?. Two top Lebanese government officials said on Thursday that Riyadh was holding Lebanon?s Saad al-Hariri captive and a third told Reuters that the Saudi authorities had ordered al-Hariri to resign while he was in Riyadh last weekend, and put him under house arrest. Saudi Arabia has denied that he is under house arrest but Hariri himself has not denied that his movements are being restricted. France has close ties with Lebanon ? a former colony ? and with Hariri, who has a home in France after spending several years in the country. Macron said there had been informal contacts with Hariri but no request to transfer him to France. Two French diplomats also said they were unaware of any plans to bring Hariri to France. Macron said he would ?emphasize the importance of Lebanese stability and integrity? in his talks in Riyadh. ?My wish is that all Lebanese political officials live freely in Lebanon? which means having a very demanding stance on those who could threaten any leader,? he added. Television pictures showed a smiling Macron being met at Riyadh airport by the crown prince. In recent years, France has been able to nurture new links with the Gulf Arab states due to its tough stance on Iran in nuclear negotiations, and the broad similarity of their policies on conflicts across the Middle East. However, the 32-year-old crown prince has emphasized closer ties with US President Donald Trump at a time when Macron has, in turn, sought to improve relations with Iran, Saudi Arabia?s rival for regional influence. 'Strong concerns about Iran' In Yemen, the Saudi-led military coalition fighting the Houthi movement said on Monday it had closed all air, land, and sea ports to stem the flow of arms to the Houthis from Iran. The United Nations said the move risked causing ?the largest famine the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims?. Macron said he would insist to Prince Mohammed that Riyadh must open the borders to allow humanitarian access. On Iran, Macron repeated that he wanted to keep the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, which US President Donald Trump has challenged. But he said he was ?very concerned? by Iran?s ballistic missile program, mentioning a missile fired from Yemen and intercepted by Saudi Arabia on Saturday, and raised the prospect of possible sanctions with regard to those activities. ?There are extremely strong concerns about Iran. There are negotiations we need to start on Iran?s ballistic missiles,? he said. ?Like what was done in 2015 for the nuclear activities, it?s necessary to put a framework in place for Iran?s ballistic activities and open a process, with sanctions if needed, of negotiation that would enable (that).? Iran has denied providing ballistic missiles to Yemeni Houthi rebels and says its missile program is purely defensive and should not be linked to the nuclear deal. Macron reaffirmed his intention to go to Iran as part of efforts to talk to all the actors in the region but warned about decisions that could destabilize the region further. ?Iran is a regional power? there should be no naivety in terms of Iran, it is about standing beside our allies, in particular, the United Arab Emirates, but it is about not having any policy that could create imbalances, conflicts in the region.?
  18. KARACHI: Former president Pervez Musharraf Wednesday said he is "pleased" to see Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) unify. The statement came shortly after the MQM-P and PSP formally announced regrouping with "one name, one symbol and one manifesto", a year after the two political factions announced complete disassociation from their former leadership based in London. "We will contest the upcoming elections under one name and symbol," MQM-P head Farooq Sattar said at the press conference in Karachi, sitting alongside PSP chief Mustafa Kamal. In his video message, the former president said he does not see MQM having a future and a new force should surface and come to the fore. "Mohajir community should come close," he said, urging for mobilisation in rural Sindh, so that they may form the government defeating Pakistan People's Party (PPP). Musharraf said his sympathy is for Mohajirs, not the MQM for the party has defamed itself all over Pakistan. "Mohajir community is in anguish due to the MQM," he added. Earlier, APML leader Mohammad Amjad also said if the MQM-P and PSP become part of their alliance, then Pervez Musharraf may assume the role of [their] leader. "They (MQM and PSP) should change their respective names and form a new party," Amjad suggested. "Everyone knows what compelled the two parties to unify today." "If they become part of our alliance, then Musharraf may assume role of [their] leader," he said.
  19. 2017 may not have officially closed its doors, but we're dead sure the best of it has already entered the room. From Ranveer Singh's dreadlocks to Tiger's most recent 'fade' acquisition, Bollywood witnessed some sharp eff-n cuts this year. Establishing that when it comes to drastic and pro-grooming moves, our movie biggies don't bat a lid. Presenting 5 of the most unpredictable ones of 2017. 1. Aamir Khan's Highlighted Spikes © Biz Asia For some weird/whacky reason, this looks like a bus tour to the Indian gullies to us. Though a pendulum difference, it looks neither modern-age nor anything 'superstar'. Sadly, just plain shoddy. Maybe Dangal's erratic schedule got him a little heavy on the head? 2. Ranveer Singh's Dreadlocks © Jack & Jones India There's no denying that Mr. Singh does super-human things. But besides going clean shaven (out of nowhere) and maintaining a longer-than-usual mane, his dreadlocks are undoubtedly his Grooming Moment of 2017. DGAF, celeb-hairstylist-perfected, badass hair at their best. 3. Shahid Kapoor's Scar-Led Messy Mop © Viacom 18 Bonus points for Shahid for always playing safe in life—while constantly experimenting with his big, fat rug. For his role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati', his grooming goal was simple: horny, royal but hair-sprayed strands. Clearly, they're looking exactly like that. 4. Tiger Shroff's Fade Adventure © Viral Bhayani To sum it up, Tiger's best decision till date. And every beard trend be damned, we're thanking our stars that there's only a slight stubble there. A medium fade on the sides, manageable length in the centre and just finger-tip worth of wax to put things in place. 5. Ranbir Kapoor's Nerd+Hipster Hybrid © Walt Disney Pictures Five miles away from the regulation cut, in ideology a quiff, but in a rather bigger move: a slight whacked-out version of a side parted comb-over—Mr. Kapoor's 'do as Jagga is a droplet of nerdy innocence. Plus, a living example of the fact that grooming changes can cut some age off your face.
  20. Parliamentarian Mazoor Hussain Wassan speaking to media on October 31, 2017. Photo: Geo News screen grab2 KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Home Affairs Manzoor Hussain Wassan claimed that there is no future for political opponents, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan. ?MQM?s name will cease to exist and the party will be dissolved. More people will leave the party and another party will be formed in its place,? he predicted while speaking to media on Tuesday. In the future, MQM?s head will be in Dubai, he claimed further. Speaking of the PTI chief, he remarked ?people who wanted to use Imran for their personal gains have done so. Don?t see a future for Imran either.? Instead of Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari, it will be Imran who will be imprisoned, he claimed. ?Imran says that Zardari will be imprisoned. I say that Imran will be imprisoned.? He also remarked: ?Time for dreams has ended, now I predict future.? Speaking about the future of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, he said that it is possible that either Maryam Nawaz or her uncle Shehbaz Sharif will become the prime minister. Reacting to PML-N Head Nawaz Sharif returning to Pakistan, he said if Nawaz Sharif returns to Pakistan, it is possible that he is not able to go back to London. ?Nawaz Sharif will definitely be jailed.? Wassan claimed that important decisions will be made in November.
  21. State Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Expressing surprise at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan?s apology to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) today, State Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Thursday she is surprised to see someone who attacked Parliament in front of the entire nation being forgiven today. Talking to the media, the minister said she is amazed that someone who lambasted state institutions in the middle of D-Chowk [Islamabad's Red Zone] has been forgiven so easily. Aurangzeb said it is amazing that someone who undermined institutions, called them mafias and abused them was instead trying to make them stronger. Earlier today, the ECP accepted the PTI chief's apology over his contemptuous remarks against the commission and concluded the contempt proceedings against him. Later, addressing the media, Imran said he did not mean to attack the ECP but was instead trying to make it a stronger institution.
  22. Thousands of people turned out in Bangkok to watch the funeral procession of Thailand?s late King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Thursday, with buildings draped in yellow marigolds and mourners lining the streets on the eve of his cremation. Mourners dressed in black slept overnight on thin plastic mats on pavements near the Grand Palace in the Thai capital in order to secure a good view of the procession, which was expected to begin at 7 a.m. (1200 GMT). The king?s cremation will feature ancient rites and a series of processions winding from the Grand Palace in Bangkok?s historic quarter to the 50-metre (165-feet) high Royal Crematorium that has been erected in a square near the palace. His body will be pulled from the Grand Palace to the cremation site on a golden chariot. A sum of $90 million has been set aside for the funeral, the likes of which has never been seen in Thailand, officials in preparations have said. King Bhumibol, also known as King Rama IX, died last October aged 88 after ruling for seven decades. He played a pivotal role in maintaining stability during years of political upheaval and rapid development. Piyamat Potsopho, 38, said she had been waiting for the king?s funeral procession since Wednesday night. ?I was very fortunate to have been born under the reign of King Rama IX,? she said. Another Bangkok resident, Suchinda Samparp, 67, said: ?It?s so hard to describe the dedication I?ve seen, how people have come out to help each other and how the late king has inspired this.? Analysts say the king?s death has left a large vacuum in the Thai psyche. Thailand has observed a year of mourning for King Bhumibol and radio and television stations have played songs dedicated to the monarch almost non-stop since his death. The songs urge Thais to follow in ?father?s footsteps?. King Bhumibol is often referred to as ?father? by Thais and is credited with reviving the popularity of the monarchy in Thailand. Days of heavy rain failed to deter mourners, many of whom pitched tents in order to gain the best access to the funeral. Many businesses around the Southeast Asian nation were shut, while Bangkok?s old quarter was draped in floral garlands made of marigolds early. Some government buildings placed potted yellow marigolds around portraits of the late king. King Bhumibol was born on a Monday, a day which Thais associate with the colour yellow. Thai Buddhists traditionally keep the bodies of their dead for seven days before a cremation. Funerals of Thai royals, however, have historically taken place months after death.
  23. It's not every day that we see a politician celebrating the festivities or traditions of another nation's community; that too with full pomp and show. But this is where Justin Trudeau comes into the picture and wins over our hearts. (Like always!) The Canadian Prime Minister is not only loved by his countrymen but also by people across the world. His gestures, quirky tweets, his advocacy for secularity and of course, his handsome looks have managed to steal the hearts of people worldwide. And yet again, this young politician has managed to steal the show this Diwali, all the while looking dapper in a traditional black sherwani. We don't need to tell you how many Indians reside in Canada and how happy they are with everything that the great white north has to offer to its citizens. But watching Trudeau immersing himself in a festival so close to India sure does warm our hearts. Last night, Trudeau took to Twitter to wish people a happy Diwali and also talked about how he is going to celebrate this auspicious occasion. Diwali Mubarak! We're celebrating in Ottawa tonight. #HappyDiwali! pic.twitter.com/HBFlQUBhWX — Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) October 17, 2017 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau participates in a reception in Ottawa celebrating #Diwali. pic.twitter.com/8DYFrl2F5Z — CanadianPM (@CanadianPM) October 17, 2017 Tweeting a picture of himself, wearing an ethnic Indian outfit while lighting a ceremonial lamp was all what that needed to set the internet abuzz. The Indian High Commissioner to Canada, Vikas Swarup couldn't have been happier as he took to his Twitter share some pictures of the festivities. And from what we see, the night definitely saw a grand event which was named #DiwaliOnTheHill. There even were several entertaining cultural dance performances for the guests to enjoy. © Twitter/Vikas Swarup © Twitter/Vikas Swarup The ceremonial Diwali puja was performed by Trudeau and he even delivered Diwali greetings to the “strong and vibrant Indian communities” of Canada present there. © Vikas Swarup And here is Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau conveying his very warm Diwali greetings to everyone pic.twitter.com/7YkD6B5Jxm — Vikas Swarup (@VikasSwarup) October 17, 2017 But as Mr. Swarup himself declared, the highlight of the event was the “Ottawa unveiling of the joint India Canada stamps.” © Twitter/Vikas Swarup © Twitter/Vikas Swarup The party was later followed by a dinner at India House in honor of the Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra, who was present there with his delegation. Diwali on the Hill was followed by a Diwali Dinner at India House in honour of the Chief Justice of India &his very distinguished delegation pic.twitter.com/AKu9TVzTvj — Vikas Swarup (@VikasSwarup) October 17, 2017 However, this is not the first time that Justin Trudeau has celebrated an Indian festival, as Twitter is flooded with images of him celebrating Holi, Gurpurab. He does so almost every year and he always been vocal about his love and respect for different cultures and faiths across the world which makes our fondness and respect for him increase manifold!
  24. There's nothing that can't be done with a little motivation and lots of hard work. That's the thing about humans – we are capable of achieving the impossible if we wrap our minds around something. Man has scaled mountains, swam through oceans, created cities (burnt them to ashes too), and yet somehow we find it difficult to get out of from bed in the morning. Life is not only about success, about the end goal. It's as much about the journey as it is about the destination. There are some moments in life when you realise it's not always about getting it right. It's also about accepting being wrong. We compiled a few inspiring quotes that will help you change the way you look at life. The next time you feel bogged down, mull a little on these.

  25. What's the first word that pops in your head when you hear the legendary words JOHN CENA? Wrestling? Muscle? Well, what if we told you that after you're done reading this it'll probably still be "muscle", but a different kind of muscle... the "muscle car" kind of muscle? Hang tight, John Cena has something in store for you. Those that love Cena but also love some quality road action will surely have a lot to say about his whips more than about his slick ring game, and - you - will - be - awed - by - what - you - see. Cena's car collection can give car collectors envy, but we're just showing these to you for automotive relief. Low key car enthusiast, Cena has a horde of vehicles in his garage and we've managed to uncover about 23 of them.
