  1. LAHORE: After his stunning catch against rival team Quetta Gladiators, former captain Shahid Khan Afridi said that at his age he runs away from fielding but today he especially requested to be on fielding. Karachi Kings defeated Quetta Gladiators in the second match of the third edition of the Pakistan Super League. Shahid Afridi played a crucial role in the wining of his team by catching the ball at the boundary, hit by Umar Ameen. At the end of the match, Afridi in an interview said that good fielding cannot be done without enjoying it and at his age, he tries to avoid fielding. Afridi said that he wanted to field at the boundary himself and thought if there is a possibility of a boundary catch then he will do it. He further said that in the T20 format, one always has to be ready for fielding.
  2. 'Boom Boom' Afridi caught a stunner in the deep to remove Umar Amin for 31, as Karachi Kings opened their PSL season with a victory against Quetta Galdiators. DUBAI: All-rounder ?Boom Boom? Shahid Khan Afridi still appears to be supremely fit and at his peak, despite being just a few days shy of his 38th birthday. But, after a stunning catch for Karachi Kings in the second match of Pakistan Super League 2018 against Quetta Gladiators on Friday, the former Pakistan captain?who turns 38 years old on March 1?admitted that he may have finally 'come of age'. Karachi Kings successfully defended their target of 150, restricting Quetta to 130-9 to claim a 19-run victory in their season opener. Afridi?s stunner of a catch at the boundary to remove Umar Amin for 31 not only stunned the audience but played an important part in the team?s confident victory in the season opener. Speaking after the match, Afridi said that he now often ?runs away from fielding at this age". He said that a cricketer cannot field well unless he enjoys it too. But at his age, he said, he mostly tries to avoid fielding. "Today, I had wanted to field on the boundary myself, hoping for a catch to come my way," said Afridi. He said the catch helped the team come back into the match and Kings were eventually able to beat Gladiators by 19 runs in their season opener. He added that in the T20 format, it was important that a player is always ready for fielding. Team-mates congratulate Afridi after an athletic catch fielding in the deep for Karachi Kings.

  4. There are two types of people in this world – those who are terrible at math, and those who are math geniuses. Growing up, maths tuition was the only respite for us future engineers. If you've prided yourself for your ace mathematical skills till now, it's all going to change. A Chinese math problem is threatening to take over the internet and even the smartest of people have been left scratching their heads over it. What's more shameful – this was a question in an exam for fifth graders in China. Let's see the problem. © Weibo Relax, that's not the reason it can't be solved. There is an English translation: Before you dismiss this as a wrong question or a prank, let us tell you it's a perfectly legitimate problem. The education officials at the Shunqing Education Department confirmed that there was nothing wrong with the question. Rather, it is meant to test the students' “critical awareness” and “independent thinking”. "Some surveys show that primary school students in our country lack a sense of critical awareness in regard to mathematics," they said. Now that we've told you it's a legit question with a legit answer, put on your thinking caps and get cracking. Channel the inner Ramanujam in you. We're Indians, we can do anything. We clear IIT-JEE, we rule Silicon Valley! We're better than this! No? We're wracking our brains here. No wonder the internet is losing its collective sh*t over this math problem. Let's think like the fifth graders. If you found this question in your paper, and you had to answer it by hook or crook what would you say? Some kids attempted it rather cleverly: "The captain is at least 18 because he has to be an adult to drive the ship" was the closest a 5th grader came to making some sense, but of course, that's not the right answer. Given up? Here's the answer. "The total weight of 26 sheep and 10 goat is 7,700 kg, based on the average weight of each animal. In China, if you're driving a ship that has more than 5,000 kg of cargo you need to have possessed a boat license for five years. The minimum age for getting a boat's license is 23, so he's at least 28." Even Sharmaji ka beta couldn't solve this. The Chinese beat him to it.
  5. Celebrity stylist and image consultant Nabila has come to our rescue as summers are approaching and humidity; the sworn enemy of our style and makeup, is in near sight. The stylist appeared on Geo News programme ?Geo Pakistan? and shared what is in these summers and what?s not. As for hair, the stylist said that the latest trend is about mid-length hair, commonly called a long bob. She said that unlike popular belief the layers don?t taper at the ends and don?t make hair look thinner if it?s wavy or curly. She said that the hair can be styled either in a straight pattern or one can go for a Bohemian tone. The stylist was also in favour of a mermaid blow dry. ?Skin is always very supreme for me,? said Nabila on the topic of skin and the right kind of make-up. She said that she believes in a natural look having a dewy appearance and bright lips. Nabila was all in favour of bright lips in summers having colours such as pinks, oranges, reds, corals, ruby reds, all being in correspondence with the latest fresh summer prints. Hope the tips by the stylist help us too with the styling and make up this summer, you can watch the video here.
  6. Arguably one of the most popular and exciting sport across the globe, football is not just a game, but a way of bringing people together irrespective of their race, culture, and country. It is a symbol that allows everyone including the fans and players to compete and share the exploits together. While it enables the fans to share their passion with others, football as a sport has often transformed the lives of people. Providing a sense of real purpose, football changed the lives of Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Diego Maradona and Pele amongst others. Apart from being the legends of the game, these footballers have another thing in common - their rough childhood. A life spent growing up in the streets, without food, money or luxuries, working for their livelihood from a tender age, knowing it's a tough place out there, with the only thing that gave them comfort and solace being football. It was probably their tough upbringing that made them fight hard for success. © Reuters A similar story has come to the fore in India where a young boy, just like the legends, has taken huge strides to realise his dream of playing football. R Manikandan is a name that doesn't ring a bell, but once you get to know his story, he will be hard to forget. The 14-year-old has become the talk of the town after securing a month-long training with none other than Real Madrid - one of the world's most prestigious and iconic football clubs. The 14-year-old will be seen sweating it out with the prominent stars of the Spanish club during his one-month stay. © Hindustan Times While training with Los Blancos is undoubtedly a life-changing opportunity, it's Manikandan's journey to this very point that has struck a chord with the Indian football fans. Just like the football greats, life was not handed to him on a silver platter, he had to work hard to reach this level. The talented youngster, who's all set to travel to Spain, was sadly begging for alms with his sister on the streets of Kerala in 2011. It was a dark phase where, rather than fretting over his ball control, Manikandan's greatest struggle was to put food in his belly and find shelter for the night. © Photo For Representation, Reuters Hailing from Tamil Nadu, wearing only rags, Manikandan and his sister were wandering with an aged woman carrying begging bowls. When questioned by the officials of the Childline - a helpline for children - and the police officials, the woman disappeared leaving behind the two kids. But, life took an unimaginable turn for the young boy after R Sreekumar, supervisor of a children's home, rescued him from the streets. While Manikandan finally had some respite, the dilapidated orphanage soon ran out of space. In order to accommodate the kids, Sreekumar started taking the inmates to the nearby Fathima Mata College grounds in Kollam, a move that eventually changed the life of Manikandan. Initially, nobody cared about the bunch that was only restricted to collecting oddballs that went across the field. However, coach MP Abhilash, who used to train senior players at the same ground discovered Manikandan's potential and presented him an opportunity to play with the seniors. And, the rest is history. © Photo For Representation, Thinkstock/Getty Images Ever since his accidental discovery, there has been no looking back for this dextrous footballer. The six-foot lanky teenager is not much of a speaker, but his game now speaks volumes for him. An under-15 player of the I-League, Manikandan now represents the district and Football Plus Professional Soccer Academy in Chennai. It was his ever-growing talent while playing in Chennai that earned him praise from some foreign coaches. Such was the impact of his game that the foreign coaches told the academy about Manikandan's hidden talent and recommended his name for the special training. “I spotted him in last February. In just one year, he has improved brilliantly and I feel if he's groomed well he will be an asset to the country,” said coach MP Abhilash, who will be accompanying Manikandan to Madrid. “His technique and agility are superb and his height adds to his prowess,” he told HT. © Photo For Representation, Thinkstock/Getty Images “Football is a passion for me. I owe everything to my coach and supervisor of the children's home. They encouraged me well and stood by my side,” Manikandan, an ardent Lionel Messi fan, said. While Manikandan is still far from achieving the success of Ronaldo or Ibrahimovic, his humble beginnings on the back of hardwork and perseverance have already placed him in the category of the football legends, who fought against all odds to realise their dream. For these individuals including Manikandan, life is like a game of football where you need goals. If there are no goals in your life, then you can't win.
  7. Irrfan Khan is one of those Bollywood actors whose movies are awaited by almost everyone. The actor has managed to make such a mark in the industry that even our parents love his performances and are always eager to watch his next project. And with his upcoming film 'Blackमà¥à¤²', the trend is here to stay. Irrfan is well known for his sarcastic and quick-witted attitude. So when we got to know that his upcoming film is going to be a comedy, we couldn't contain our excitement. We got our first look at the movie with this weird AF poster, which shows Irrfan wearing a paper bag with eye cut-outs over his head: The teaser of my next film, a quirky comedy titled #Blackमà¥à¤². Directed by #AbhinayDeo. Produced by @tseries & RDP Motion Pictures. Trailer on Feb 22 https://t.co/P8AQ30PlDb pic.twitter.com/T64Y09kBHS — Irrfan (@irrfank) February 14, 2018 And soon after, we got to watch this hilarious teaser. If you ever wondered how would Irrfan Khan look like running semi-naked on the streets, then you will love it: On a day when the whole world is painted RED, we offer you the teaser of #BLACKमà¥à¤² - https://t.co/Vvucq71IEz@irrfank @IamKirtiKulhari #ArunodaySingh @divyadutta25 #AbhinayDeo #BhushanKumar #Blackmail @TSeries — Blackmail (@BlackmailFilm) February 14, 2018 Following this teaser, we got to see a plethora of posters of the movie, with different characters hiding their faces: Hey Bag-waan! What did this person do? Find out on 22nd Feb.@IamKirtiKulhari #Blackमà¥à¤² @irrfank @divyadutta25 #ArunodaySingh @TSeries @OmiOneKenobe pic.twitter.com/KFCyHOqmbE — Blackmail (@BlackmailFilm) February 17, 2018 Reputation is as fragile as a glass. Find out why this woman is hiding her face on 22nd Feb. #Blackमà¥à¤² @divyadutta25 @irrfank @IamKirtiKulhari @OmiOneKenobe @TSeries #ArunodaySingh pic.twitter.com/NgavhqFZRb — Blackmail (@BlackmailFilm) February 17, 2018 Those paper bags definitely caught our attention and we were left wondering as to what are all the characters so ashamed of? Luckily we got our answers today. First things first, the trailer is chaotic AF and takes on the subject of infidelity in the most comical way. We see Irrfan on his way home to surprise his wife but unfortunately, he is the one who is surprised out of his wits: He catches his wife in bed with someone else. © T-Series The first thought that would come to anyone's sane mind would be to confront both of them but Irrfan's insane character, Dev, decides to go a different way. No points for guessing that he decided to 'blackmail' his wife's boyfriend. © T-Series What follows is a tale full of chaos and a vicious cycle of blackmail, where Irrfan finds himself caught in his own web. And honestly, we have never seen Irrfan so confused and bewildered. © T-Series Watch the trailer here: Apart from Irrfan Khan, the film stars Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh and Omi Vaidya and is directed by 'Delhi Belly' director Abhinay Deo. It is slated for a release on April 6, 2018.
  8. Cricket is a sport that thrives on the contest between the bat and the ball. Apart from the occasional byes and leg-byes, the contact with the body parts is neither ideal nor intentional. When you compare it with football, where legs and head usually do the job, cricket is all about making contact with the willow. And, given the restrictions in gentleman's game, it's quite bizarre if anyone scores runs with their head, right? Wrong. In a crazy turn of events, a batsman ended up scoring a six after the noticeable help of an opposition bowler. During the Ford Trophy - a domestic 50-over competition in New Zealand, a batsman smashed a six after the ball ricocheted off the head of the bowler and sailed over the ropes. Ol' Jeets used Andy's head as a ramp today. Don't worry, nobody died. #FordTrophy https://t.co/g2EsYaYifJ — The Niche Cache (@thenichecache) February 21, 2018 The incident occurred in the third preliminary final of the tournament between Auckland and Canterbury when Jeet Raval struck a delivery straight back at the bowler Andrew Ellis. Such was the power of the shot that even before Ellis could get out of the way, the ball hit his head and then soared over the boundary for a six. Despite the massive impact of the ball on his head, Ellis seemed okay as players from both sides checked up on his well being. He was taken off the field for a concussion test and was declared fit enough to resume the match. He went on to bowl seven overs for figures of 2-52. Canterbury Captain Andrew Ellis was Struck on Head by a straight Shot from Jeet Raval who scored 149 The ball hit him so hard on head that it struck on his head and then sailed for a six, he left the field for concussion test but was able to return for the Match #FordTrophy pic.twitter.com/rS0hDnzlU5 — Abhijeet (@TheYorkerBall) February 21, 2018 Raval, who has represented New Zealand in nine Tests, said he was concerned about the Ellis' well-being and was relieved when he returned to the field. "Whenever anybody gets hit in the head, your immediate concern is for the person, and I was worried Andrew had hurt himself," Raval was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. "But, thankfully, it soon looked like he hadn't been injured by what had seemed a nasty blow. He's a true Cantab, a very tough nut, and it was a relief for me to see him carry on and complete the game without any visible effects. My hope for him is that he won't experience any delayed concussion. It's certainly not pleasant for anyone to experience that in a game," he added. Despite being shaken by the incident, Raval didn't let it affect his batting as he went on to score a match-winning 149 off 153 balls with 10 fours and four sixes, powering Auckland to 304/6 in 50 overs. In reply, Canterbury were bowled out for 197 in 37.2 overs with spinner Tarun Nethula recording figures of 4-43.
  9. For a team that lost two consecutive Tests in the beginning of their much-anticipated tour, the Indian cricket team has come a long way to clinch the One-Day International (ODI) series 5-1 and then win the first of the three T20Is against South Africa. The Virat Kohli-led India might have lost the Test series, but what followed later is nothing short of being clinical. A 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series has surely boosted the Indian camp which will undoubtedly go for the kill in the second match at Centurion today. © BCCL With a historic ODI series win and a T20I triumph recently, the Indian team surely earned themselves some downtime. And, that's exactly what they were seen doing in their final days in the Rainbow Nation. While the Proteas - eyeing a comeback - were sweating it out in the nets, the Indian side called off the optional training session ahead of the second T20I at the SuperSport Park in a bid to try out a new sport. Substituting the cricket bat with the golf club, the Indian cricketers were seen enjoying themselves on the golf course. © Instagram/@rohitsharma45 Indian opener Rohit Sharma was seen in the company of spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik and batting coach Sanjay Bangar on the golf course. Taking to Instagram, Rohit shared a photo with the caption: "Great day on the different field @yuzi_chahal23 @dk00019 @imsanjaybangar #DJ". Earlier, Kohli also took his teammates out for dinner after an emphatic 28-run win over the Proteas in the first T20I. The Indian captain took to Twitter and shared the moments of their celebratory dinner after the game. "Last night dinner with the boys after a good win!," Kohli tweeted alongside a picture. © Twitter/@imVkohli The photograph featured the likes of Dhawan, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul and Suresh Raina - who made a comeback to the Indian side after a hiatus of 12-long months. Pushed on the backfoot, the Proteas will have to play out of the skin of their teeth to return to the winning ways and stay alive in the three-match series when they lock horns with India in the second T20I at Centurion today.

  11. The wild world of cryptocurrencies brings new winners every day and the talk of the town for the past few weeks has been the upcoming hardfork of ZCL (Zclassic and BTC) into BTCP (Bitcoin Private). From $92 back on 11th Feb, the cryptocurrency reached $208 on 19th Feb before settling back at $190 currently. What the fork means is simple – anyone who possesses ZCL in a wallet will get equivalent BTCP (Bitcoin Private) after the fork, two days after the snapshot on 28th Feb. Similarly, owners of BTC will also get an airdrop of equivalent btcp in their wallets. Therefore, expecting the near future bull-run of a privacy coin that has the bitcoin brand behind it, the price of ZCL has doubled over the past week. © Twitter BTCP or Bitcoin Private is one of the most sought after upcoming cryptocurrencies with support from Rhett Creighton, the founder, and innovator behind ZClassic. BTCP makes use of ZK-Snarks to obscure transaction participants thus earning the badge for a classic privacy coin with anonymous features. One of the major reasons for the rise in popularity of anonymous transactions coupled with privacy features is the fact that recently a lot of governmental regulations have recently come up in a bid to better understand the cryptocurrency market. Going forward, a lot of countries will come up with their own interpretation of the blockchain technology in order to best exploit the real-world use cases. It is because of this regulatory environment that insiders feel the need for a bitcoin branded privacy coin that can be used in the future. © bitcoinprivateorg In India too, the government has clearly said that disruptive technologies like Block-chain and IoT will have a great impact on the way we live and work. Disruptive technologies such as Block-chain and the Internet of Things, will have a profound impact in the way we live and work. They will require rapid adaptation in our workplaces: PM @narendramodi — PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 19, 2018 While exchanges are yet to announce support for the ZClassic fork, many expect the price to almost 3x on the back of strong headwinds from positive investor sentiment in the market at the moment and a need for a bitcoin powered privacy coin.

  12. It is not yet known whether the Mi Mix 2S is going to be announced officially at MWC this year. However, countless leaks have already pointed towards details that we already know. The Mi Mix 2S is said to sport Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor and there's something else. A leaked video suggests that Xiaomi's high-end smartphone will use gestures to navigate exactly like how it works on the iPhone X. Originally spotted by weico.cc and later posted by OnPhones on YouTube, the video shows that the phone does not feature a home button and has a near bezel-less display. © Youtube In order to navigate, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to launch the must-tasking app switcher. The gesture has been directly lifted from the iPhone X and if the video is authentic, it means Xiaomi may not adopt the fingerprint sensor from the Mi Mix 2. Other leaks have also suggested that Xiaomi's latest device may feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, further solidifying the rumour of the fingerprint scanner being absent. The smartphone is expected to launch at MWC 2018 and according to rumours, it will be the first smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and is expected to have a 3400 mAh battery, 8GB RAM, a dual camera setup and 256GB internal storage. © Weibo An official banner had also surfaced on Weibo that shows the design of the smartphone. From the banner we can gather that the device has a very high screen-to-body ratio and also sports a notch just like the iPhone X. Xiaomi has not sent any invites for the keynote that is expected to take place at MWC. However, we will keep you updated as soon as we know more details about the smartphone.
  13. It's safe to say that last week was all about Priya Prakash Varrier. Even if you aren't an active social media user, there is no chance in hell that you missed out on the whole obsession with Priya and her wink. The girl was everywhere- right from your Facebook feed to your Whatsapp and was very quickly labelled as the 'national crush'. And now we have a new woman in town who has taken the country by storm- Himanshi Khurana.

  14. A man of many talents – an adventurer, writer and TV presenter, Bear Grylls is one of his kind. When people get to know about this genius, at first they do not believe in his skills. Then they watch him doing weird & unbelievable stuff and just get hooked onto him forever, such is his identity. The 43-year-old calls himself 'a bit stupid and incredibly lucky' for having survived some of the toughest terrains in the world. Whether it is about having survived to fly without a reserve parachute or having been bitten by deadly snakes a number of times, Grylls' story is enthralling and larger than life. He has believed in developing awareness about his own body, making it fit for survival in harsh circumstances and choosing his own battles. Where on one hand we see him every now and then challenging the odds, he often mentions that age is just a number. As he takes the road less travelled and inspires millions of young and old people throughout the world to explore life at best, we bring to you a must read story of his journey which made him the toughest survivor on Earth. Bear Grylls: The Born Survivor © Instagram British explorer Bear Grylls, popularly called 'Born Survivor' is best known to TV audiences for Discovery's 'Man vs. Wild'. The magic of TV makes Grylls look like the ultimate survivor, but the truth isn't so black and white. From his genuine close calls with death to embarrassing leaks about his so-called survival shows, no one knows the complete truth behind Bear Grylls and his life. Bullied In School, Grylls Took To Karate Well, anyone who has seen his shows might be surprised to learn that Grylls was bullied in school. The guy seems pretty tough now, but he wasn't always like that. In response to the bullying he received at school, young Grylls decided to take up karate classes along with a few of his friends. Three years later he got his black belt and went to train in Japan as the youngest member of the Karate Union of Great Britain. Grylls describes the experience in his book 'Mud, Sweat and Tears' as follows: "Each night we slept on the floor in small wooden Japanese huts, and by day we learned how to fight — real and hard. The training was more exacting and demanding than anything I had previously encountered." Hiking In The Himalayas, Excursions In India And Joining The Army © Instagram After leaving school, Grylls spent several months hiking the Himalayas. He told The Hindustan Times during an interview: "I spent quite some time in India before joining the Army. I went out there climbing, and up in West Bengal and all around Darjeeling. We were in Calcutta for a while and then we were with the Indian Army as well." Grylls even flirted with the idea of joining the Indian Army himself at the time, but ultimately decided to enroll in the military at home in Great Britain. Grylls joined the United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve in 1994 and served with 21 Regiment Special Air Service, or SAS, for three years, receiving training in everything from desert and winter warfare to evasive driving, climbing, and explosives. A Daredevil And Not So Easy To Scare © Instagram Grylls might have only been an SAS reserve, but that doesn't mean he got to skip out on any of the dangerous stuff. His second deployment to Africa ended in a terrible accident that almost claimed his life. He broke three vertebrae in a deadly 17,000 foot fall. But Grylls didn't let that accident be an obstacle in his adventures. He lived his childhood dream to climb Mount Everest when he scaled earth's highest mountain in 1998, less than two years after his near-fatal Africa fall. Everest is obviously no walk in the park, and Grylls almost met his end for a second time when some loose ice left him hanging on for dear life. At The Top Of The World – The World's Highest Dinner Party In 2005, Grylls and fellow explorer Lieutenant Commander Alan Veal staged one of the weirdest stunts of Grylls' career. They broke the record for the world's highest dinner party when they flew a hot air balloon to a height of 24,262 feet and climbed down to a dinner table suspended below the balloon, braving temperatures of minus 50 degrees Celsius. After enjoying a three-course meal together, the daredevil duo dedicated the venture to Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth and skydived back down to ground with full bellies. Controversies Around Grylls And His Work Grylls was the subject of controversy in 2008 when U.S. survival consultant Mark Wienert started talking to the British media about his time working on Grylls' show 'Man vs.Wild', claiming that the star was a fraud. Wienert revealed that during one episode he personally assembled a Polynesian-style bamboo raft off-camera only for Grylls to add the finishing touches and take the credit. And after shooting on the episode concluded, Wienert claims the ex-military man left for a motel. He also claimed that Grylls apparently spent a few nights in a luxurious lodge during the filming of the Sierra Nevada mountains episode. However, no one knows the authenticity of these allegations. An Adventurous Dad—Did He Go Too Far? © Instagram When your dad eats bugs and gets peed on for a living, you're bound to have an interesting childhood. That's definitely true for Bear Grylls' kids. When they aren't staying on the houseboat they moored on the banks of London's River Thames, Grylls and his family live on a remote island off the coast of Wales. In 2013, Grylls found himself in hot water with the local council after erecting a huge metal slide that ended with a drop off a cliff face into the sea below. Grylls defended his decision by saying, "The slide has an element of danger to it, you do hit the water pretty hard. But do you know what? There are a lot more dangerous things around." He was criticized again in 2015 when he purposely stranded his 11-year-old son on a rocky outcrop off the island to serve as a training aid for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. 'Survivor Games', China Bear Grylls is hugely popular in the U.S. and his native U.K., but he also has a massive following in an unlikely place: China. Grylls' 2012 bestseller 'Mud, Sweat and Tears' was voted the most influential book in China the year it was released. And in 2016, Grylls invited several Chinese celebrities to join him in the wild, including former NBA star Yao Ming, Olympic swimmer Fu Yuanhui, and Robin Li, one of China's richest tech moguls. The show aired under the name Survivor Games and featured a premise similar to Mission Survive, a UK series in which Grylls takes eight celebrities on a two week hike through unforgiving terrain and eliminates them one by one. Despite the country's love for Grylls, however, the Chinese version didn't go over well. Viewers complained that the show was 'tasteless' and 'disgusting' after Grylls forced the contestants to drink their own urine. Disgusting? Oh yeah! But, tasteless? We'll have to trust Grylls on that!
  15. Taimur Ali Khan- a name we all see on our news feeds every single day, whether we like it or not. © Twitter Never in our lives could we have thought that a child, all of one-year-old, could become the country's obsession. We have seen him wearing sunglasses, dancing, playing and have even laughed at memes of him. We know he is adorable AF and is the son of two Bollywood superstars, but the obsession behind the squishy-faced- cherub is borderline unhealthy. © Twitter In a country like ours, where we see more of a kid than actual news, how do you attract people to read about something that may add to their knowledge? By using that very kid, of course. There is a Facebook page with the name 'Pictures of Taimur Ali Khan to distract you from real issues'. No, we are not kidding. But before you decide to leave this page because you don't want to see any more of little T, we are asking you to calm down and give this a chance. Trust us. So, the page is not just another fan page of Taimur but is in fact, a satire on the media's obsession with him. (We too are guilty but hey, at least we don't post about him every day.) By using Taimur's 'adorable' pictures, the admin of the page will try to get your attention towards more important and pressing issues that are prevalent in the country. And honestly, we think it's pure genius. Have a look at how he does it: When Social Samosa contacted the admin of the page to ask him about the purpose of the page, he revealed that he was frustrated with the amount of news of Taimur he saw on his Facebook news feed. And so, he decided to satirize the media by using pictures of Taimur. He also clarified about how none of his posts are meant to 'hurt Taimur or his parents in any way'. The admin's unusual yet amazing way of discussing serious issues has won people over. Not even a month old, the page has garnered over 5000 likes and has got people desperately waiting for his next post.
  16. For today, let's turn the tables a bit. Instead of devising a list of the best-dressed men this week, let's look at how the fairer-***, fared. Because really, while gender distinctions are key players in human dressing abilities, there's a lot to learn from each other nevertheless. Following the exact theory, while a few hot lasses on the red-carpet this week wore nothing close to menswear, here's what to learn from them anyway: 1. Aditi Rao Hydari © Viral Bhayani Aditi Rao Hydari's idea is simple: don't succumb to palette-conventions. Red-carpets events could be calling for darker shades/tones, but the actress has never been in a mood to relent. As seen here, she's gone lighter, opted for Ostrich feathers as details, and turned up in a one-of-a-kind Swarovski-studded, lilac Shriya Som ensemble for the event. Takeaway For Men: Black, blues, greys are great. But not at the cost of looking like a safe, conventional dresser. If you haven't yet, go lighter on the palette while venturing out in the evening. And much like Aditi's play with ostrich feathers here, turn to soft, feathery lapels/hats for those added stakes. Be rebellious. 2. Malaika Arora Khan © Viral Bhayani The men-approved red beacon of Bollywood, Malaika Arora Khan knows how to strike the right sartorial balance. While her fits are always on point, in this outfit here, she's opted for an equipoise of sight with fluidity around her bust. It's a well-fitted outfit, sure, but thanks to the soft knot on the top-half, she isn't appearing like she's choking in it. Takeaway For Men: While the suit could be your holy grail for most formal occasions, second-skin (skinny) fits aren't always the best bets. Slip some ease into your ensembles, and relax your pieces around the right corners, striking an equilibrium of being appropriately-dressed, all while being at ease. Or, if you're wearing skinny-fitted trousers, try a robe-coat-hybrid on top. Just balance it out. 3. Disha Patani © Viral Bhayani Needless to say, Disha has worn the red-carpet uniform: glam, shiny, much like your party disco ball (of course, Manish Malhotra). But while she's looking like she's woken up to bring the others to shame (with her terrific outfit), don't think the outfit is what's making her look like a stunner. She's hot anyway. Takeaway For Men: Talking of suits on the red-carpet, if the runway is any indication, there's immense use of sequins and glitter in evening wear for men. Take Falguni and Shane Peacock's recently-concluded show, for instance, that was a glorious personification of this theory. So, the idea is simple: bring in some change in your tailoring antics — try some shine and textures on your ensembles. They won't bring you harm. 4. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan © Viral Bhayani The only meaning of the word 'Beauty', Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's ombre-like crystal-studded gown (from Kuwait-based brand 'LaBourjoisie') made a few headlines this week. Signifying our growing affinity towards ombre effect-led menswear pieces, that are available at any small/big-box store. Takeaway For Men: Let's be frank, most men don't own an ombre piece of apparel (nothing to be proud of). However, today, do us a favour and invest in an at least one piece. Whether in the form of these dope joggers, or a must-have henley T-shirt. Believe us: you need these. 5. Rekha © Viral Bhayani As usual, the eternal Rekha turned up in a drop-dead gold number on the red-carpet this week. And as a shout-out for men who're always extra, her gold potli too walked with her in tow. Let's admit that's Rekha for the world, and that's what made her special for Mr. Bachchan. Takeaway For Men: You need to wear gold at least once in your life. While it may be a big no-no for most men across the globe (including me), let's tell you: there's a way of wearing it, without looking like your grandmother's bangle. If not all-over, just try adding a bit of it in your outfit? Take a cue from Ranveer Singh here: © YouTube
  17. If you've ever needed a reason to start learning martial arts, here is it, and honestly you won't ever get a better one. A guy fought off a gang of five armed intruders and literally saved his family. What a hero! 55-year-old David Pugh was asleep when the robbers broke into his house around 3 am. When he went downstairs, he found the thieves threatening his teenage son and dog and demanding money. And, in that moment, David went into superdad mode and fought off all the guys. © SWNS It honestly sounds like a miracle that he was able to defend his house and his family alone, but he did manage to make them flee without the miscreants taking anything. But, on the downside, he did sustain some pretty brutal injuries. He suffered a broken nose and other facial injuries, and to show the extent of all of it, he immediately took pictures where he's covered in blood. © SWNS Talking to the Daily Mail, he said, “There was a loud bang at 3am when they smashed the patio doors to get in but I thought Zeus had knocked something over. By the time I got out of bed, totally naked, I was approaching the door and it was kicked in. It went with a right smash and there were four or five guys on the landing in balaclavas. The men kept shouting 'Where's the money? Give us your money!'.” Luckily, he's trained in the Israeli military self-defence system Krav Maga, and according to him, basically his 'instinct' took over after he saw the men in his home. © SWNS He said, “I grabbed the first couple [of robbers] I could - it turned into a brawl and a battle. I just grabbed what I could and hit them with aftershave bottles and chairs.” David also mentioned that they had machetes, a baseball bat and a golf club. He also added, “I was desperately trying to get to my son's room, but I had so many splits to my head, I was drenched in blood. We could only assume they saw that and thought, 'we have gone too far' and got out of here. They must have thought they half-killed me. In retrospect we were probably quite lucky.” His son is understandably shaken up after the whole incident, but one of the worst things about the unfortunate event was the fact this his puppy Zeus received a nasty cut to the head and fell into a canal after becoming disorientated. © SWNS Reportedly, this was one of the most brutal attacks in a home the police had ever seen. Actually, judging by David's pictures covered in blood, it's not surprising at all.
  18. While one can indulge in an hour-long discussion about how successful Riteish and Genelia are as actors, there will be not be a single person in the room who would doubt that they are indeed one of the most adorable couples in tinsel town. If you are single and sad about the same, we advise you to never look at either one of their social media handles. Why? Because you'll see a lot of this: Happy Birthday My Everything... You will Forever be my Always. #Myheart #partnerincrime #myboyfriend #mybestfriend #lifeislivingyou A post shared by Genelia Deshmukh (@geneliad) on Dec 16, 2017 at 4:12pm PST And this: Sometimes just sometimes in our ordinary, mundane, boring lives GOD gives us a fairytale and that fairytale for me is our story.. Happy Anniversary to the man who still makes me fall in love with him everyday.. I Love You @riteishd A post shared by Genelia Deshmukh (@geneliad) on Feb 2, 2018 at 6:54pm PST Oh, and this too: I will always hold onto you so tight and that's because I know something so amazing doesn't happen twice..Happy Anniversary @riteishd .. thank you for changing the meaning of "Home" from a place to a person for me.. #mykindalove #wedidgoodhoney #tothebestandrestofourlives A post shared by Genelia Deshmukh (@geneliad) on Feb 2, 2017 at 2:51pm PST Evidently, these two never shy away from social media PDA and we are always here for it. Their adorable pictures and mushy captions can melt anyone and everyone. But this time, it isn't just another one of their birthday or anniversary wishes that is making the rounds on the internet. It is their re-enactment of a rather 'iconic' scene from everyone's favorite 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. Remember the 'Rahul is a cheater' scene? Of course, you do! There's no way one can forget it. Here, jog your memory: While we have seen never-ending recreations of the scene, nothing has ever been as good as the original one. Until now. Riteish and Genelia, being the adorable couple that they are, decided to re-enact this very scene from their 'Fav movie'. Obviously, it HAD to go viral on the internet because no one can resist them, but we have to say that they did a pretty good job! Have a look: #RahulIsACheater ï¼#musicallyindia #DuetWithMe #CoupleGoals @geneliad One of our FAV Movies :) @musicallyapp Download https://t.co/yfNcfixjrj app and check my videos! pic.twitter.com/oH94LZvg05 — Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) February 13, 2018 The original scene ends with Rahul and Anjali all ready to fight, Riteish and Genelia added their own little twist to it towards the end. Well, maybe they had to. You CANNOT get scared when your wife shouts at you, right? While we had a gala time watching them turn into Rahul and Anjali for a brief moment as a form of tribute, even 'Anjali' couldn't help but laugh at the same. This is what she tweeted after watching the video: ððð https://t.co/MKEMeQBabT — Kajol (@KajolAtUN) February 13, 2018 Well, what else do you need apart from Kajol's validation? Riteish and Genelia, your job is done. Now please stop being so adorable and giving us relationship goals, all the freaking time.
  19. It is not every day you come across such stories of strong will and unbreakable commitment that people make to themselves. This guy did exactly what all millennials dream of. Actually, he took it to another level altogether. With the increasing inflation rate, buying a house for oneself is one of the biggest milestones we face today, and this Australian guy has been able to buy 12 properties at the age of 26! Eddie Dilleen owns $2 million worth of investment properties - and he did it without any additional support. He did it while working at a fast food restaurant and growing up in a hard-up household. Now, the question is what led him to become so determined and accomplish such big goals at such an early stage. Eddie's parents split up when he was a child and he grew up with his single mum in the Sydney suburb of Mount Druitt, thus relying solely on her single pension after. Growing up in such circumstances, Eddie made up his mind for success and started wiring his brain for the same. He became so obsessed with owning a home at a young age, as he promised himself to never be in the same situation when he became an adult. © Eddie Dilleen Eddie says, "I remember it was very hard. We didn't have any money at all growing up and I just remember it would always be a struggle every single day to put food on the table. I said to myself when I'm older, and I have a job or whatever, I don't ever want that to happen again." After leaving McDonald's, until recently he was working as an industrial tools salesman, saving his income by working two bartender jobs on the side while pushing his limits and working for almost 80 or 90-hours a week. Do you want to know his secret weapon? Well, he always kept an eye on the ordinary properties that could make him money. He tried to learn as much he could from potential investors about buying and selling homes and by buying books and reading up. Eddie says, "Obviously you've got to educate yourself - you can't do it without the knowledge. You'll get in trouble that way for sure." The good news for us is that he is already working on a book explaining his experiences and learning, allowing him to share the knowledge with everyone else. © Eddie Dilleen If we look at his stepping stone, then we see that he bought his first property on the Central Coast of New South Wales when he was just 19 years old. For that, he had saved $20,000 deposit about two years after he started working. Today he has several properties across South Australia, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and New South Wales. Eddie says, "I had a plan in place from day one. I only purchase the properties that put money into my pocket. I knew it was a mathematical equation. From all the property I was buying, it allowed me to quit my job. I only work when I want to now." That's his story. Are you ready to make yours? One advice Eddie has for millennials is that being positive and staying focused on saving enough money for a deposit remains the single major factor.
  20. Here's a Call of Duty player who just loves bringing knives to a gunfight. Grinding levels is a pretty common objective in 'Call of Duty's' multiplayer mode, but one YouTuber has become the first player to reach the ultimate “Master Prestige” rank in WWII without firing a single bullet. That in itself is no easy feat, but earning that achievement without using powerful long-range rifles or any sort of guns? That's simply insane. YouTube sensation TheseKnivesOnly has managed to rake in more than 32,000 kills to hit the milestone, and during this time only utilised the Recon Aircraft and Counter Recon scorestreaks. Once you are Master Prestige, you can keep earning experience points all the way to level 1000, but your rank won't change anymore. TheseKnivesOnly has been documenting his road to the coveted title of Master Prestige, showcasing his ability to run the battlefield and gain experience points by only throwing knives and melee weapons. He has a video available for each Prestige rank, breaking down his stats and weapons used 'Call of Duty: WWII' developer Sledgehammer Games has acknowledged his achievement, which is reportedly the first in the world to hit Master Prestige in the game without firing a single shot. He managed to accrue over 32,000 kills using the Infantry Division's bayonet charge, shovel, ice pick, throwing knives, and combat knives. © Twitter “The main reason I was inspired to knife only was during a Search and Destroy match on WMD where a random guy in the lobby hit a straight up tomahawk bomb defend,” TheseKnivesOnly told Kotaku via email “I thought it was the coolest thing ever and it sparked my interest for using knives.” TheseKnivesOnly is a member of the professional gaming organization KARNAGE clan, and he's been mastering his virtual knife skills since the original 'Call of Duty: Black Ops' was released in 2010.
  21. For anyone and everyone who is single, Valentine's Day is perhaps the worst day of the year. Seeing couples indulging in mushy PDA online and offline makes you nauseous and even celebrities don't make it easy for us to tolerate this day, when they take to their social media to post pictures with long-ass captions with their partners. But Anushka Sharma is celebrating this day with a little twist this time. © Clean Slate Films Never would we have imagined that hearing Anushka Sharma saying 'I love you' can give us sleepless nights but this new teaser of 'Pari' proved that anything's possible. First, she made us start this week on a scary note when she shared yet another poster of the film. Here's something more haunting than your #MondayBlues. #PariTrailerOnFeb15 ⬠âª@parambratachattopadhyay @officialcsfilms @kriarj @pooja_ent @kytaproductions A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Feb 11, 2018 at 10:34pm PST She revealed that the trailer will finally be released on 15th February and we thought we are done with the never-ending posters and teasers till then. But little did we know, that she has a V-day surprise for us all. The kind of surprise we would never want. Today, she posted a special teaser and asked us, 'Will you be her Valentine?' Will you be her Valentine? https://t.co/3xiKG8lYyZ#PariTrailerOnFeb15 @paramspeak @OfficialCSFilms @kriarj @poojafilms — Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) February 13, 2018 Honestly, Anushka asking anyone to be her Valentine will make the person jump with joy. And this teaser will in fact make you jump, but not with joy. But with fear. While watching TV, Anushka's character suddenly says 'I love you' to her partner who is sitting next to her. She does receive a reply to the same, just not from the person she expected. Watch and find out who loves her back: Can't believe we are saying this, but no Anushka, we would never want to be her valentine. And if this is how you say 'I love you', we don't want to hear it either.
  22. A very conventional way to approach your favourite love sick festival-Valentine's Day is by giving bae the best gift(s) she deserves. Valentine's day started off as a cheer to commercialism when lovers used to buy each other cheesy Archies or Hallmarks greetings cards, that were available back in the day. Like that wasn't bad enough, Archies upped their merch to swaggered little stuffed teddies holding a red heart which read 'I love you' most times. Flowers were important gifts too along with a quintessential heart shaped box of chocolates. And that was that. Celebrations were dignified with everything red and heart shaped and people were happy. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Today, it's a lot more complicated than that. Sometimes the misery of gifting your significant other baffles you so much, you end up with some serious gift psychosis. No, I am not going to suggest what you should get your better half (how the hell are we to know what they'd like, anyway?) but I will give you a few pointers on what NOT to gift them. If you ever come across one of these on your list, take a fat bold marker and strike them out, immediately! Greetings Cards OR Teddy Bears Are you kidding me? First off, greeting cards died a slow death (just like your imagination) and no one wants to receive one. So what if she's a cheesy, mushy gal, she could seriously do without 'my heart belongs to you' kinda messages on cardboard. And no, E-Cards are the worst things to hit the internet FYI. We'd also strongly recommend you stab teddy and give him the death he deserves because she'll flip at the sight of a Teddy Bear holding a heart. Seriously man, get real. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Pencil Sharpeners Or Any Sort Of Stationary Stationary is cool. I mean, giving someone some uber cool stationary is a great idea but don't go pick up random stationary kits from your local 'Bunty Stationary shop' is all I am saying. Yeah, someone actually bought me one of those old age pencil sharpeners once (the one that make the sound), and all I sharpened was my brain, by eventually dumping the guy. So no, stationary doesn't work unless you're getting us WD-40. Now that's a useful gift. © Thinkstock/Getty Images An Ex's Clothing No sir, we're no fools. If your ex has left her ganji behind, don't you dare give it to your current girlfriend. That's just plain disgusting. If you're doing your best to get rid of all the remnants of your past relationships, then we suggest you make cute little outfits out of them for your dog or your cat. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT pass them on to your SO. That's just bad manners. A Sexually Transmitted Infection/Disease Finding out you have an STD while you're in a serious committed relationship is bad. Finding out you have an STD on Valentine's Day is even worse! So, spare each other that trouble and get yourselves tested. The last thing you want is a big fat reminder of herpes on your lip, on Valentine's Day! Anything From The Petrol Pump Store Valentine's day gifts needn't be expensive but they can't be from one of those 'In & Out' shops you see at petrol pumps. Why would you go there to pick a gift in the first place? Unless you're gifting her some rad, over-the-top-branded toiletries or some gum for that bad breath, petrol pump shops are a big NO, NO. Adultery You don't wanna be giving more than one Valentine's Day gifts, if you're in a serious and committed relationship. I mean, keep your girlfriend happy and let the other woman go! The worst gift is the feeling of being cheated on and you really don't want to gift your partner that, this Valentine's Day! © Thinkstock/Getty Images A Happy Meal Toy What are you, 7? What is she, 5? Buy something real, man! Heart Shaped Balloons From Traffic Signals They're not an urban Valentine's Day myth, they seriously crop up every year without fail at traffic signals and unless you're Subodh from 'Dil Chahta Hai' , you really don't want to give your girl those balloons! Buy her some soap bubbles from the signal instead, that'll make her happier! © Thinkstock/Getty Images A Keychain Unless you're coming back from the Bahamas, loaded with souvenirs, a keychain makes for a really bad gift. What is she even gonna do with a keychain? Buy more locks just so she can use your gift wisely? Maybe get her a fridge magnet? At least that'll proudly display your failure as a reasonable man. Buying gifts on Valentine's Day is highly overrated and what's worse is you can never turn away from a bad gift. So either don't gift her anything and just cover her in mush and cuddles to last her a year or get her some make-up, a good read or the promise of being a better man, instead.
  23. You know cars are your life when your Instagram does not have any pictures of you, but only showcases your passion for cars and the never-ending number of cars you own. And that's exactly the case of Kris Singh. © Motoroids Kris is an Indian-American businessman. He is the managing partner of a private investment company but that's not exactly what he is famous for. The man's collection of luxury and one-of-a-kind cars can make anyone die of jealousy. My favorite time of the day is when everyone else is still asleep. Happy Monday! ð¤ð¤«ðð¨ðð I hope you have a great week ahead! ðð¯ð _______________________________________________________ #Lamborghini #Veneno #LamborghiniVeneno #Sunday #Monday #SundayFunday #LateNightDrive #Peace #Quiet #OpenRoad #Lambo #MondayMorning #StartUp #StartTheWeekRight #BullsOverBears #305 #KeyBiscayne #CoralGables #Brickell #Miami #MiamiBeach #SouthBeach #BocaRaton #FtLauderdale #UFO #Drive #Driven #GetOutAndDrive #KrisSingh #BLESSED A post shared by Kris Singh (@lamborghiniks) on Feb 12, 2018 at 1:48am PST If you notice closely, even his Instagram username includes a car in it- 'lamborghiniks'. Enough said! In the past, he made headlines around the world for being one of the only three owners of the ultra-rare $4 million plus Lamborghini Veneno that costs around $4 million (Rs. 25 crores). Still pinching myself and still cannot believe it's mine. The Lamborghini Veneno. ððð ððð¨ð ð #BLESSED ð _____________________________________________________________ #Lamborghini #Veneno #VerdeSingh #MiamiBeach #Verde #Singh #LamborghiniVeneno #AventadorSV #Green #SV #FL #Centenario #NotPoweredByDuracell #Lambo #Ferrari #McLaren #SuperVeloce #SouthBeach #Miura #Countach #Diablo #Murcielago #Florida #Aventador #SouthBeach #Miami #Huracan #MiamiBeach #HuracanPerformante ð #BLESSED ð A post shared by Kris Singh (@lamborghiniks) on Apr 30, 2017 at 6:05pm PDT He also made another exceptional purchase: Agera XS by the Swedish car manufacturer Koenigsegg that costs $3 million (Rs. 19 crores). The Koenigsegg Agera XS live from Milano! No filter or photo adjustments. Straight off the iPhone. This color, under the sun, is pure madness.

And in another attempt to be as unique as possible, Kris has made an announcement that has taken aback the world by the sheer insanity of it. He is now getting his hands on an Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, out of the 150 that will be made. Apparently, the car has been priced at $3.2 million (Rs 20 crore) and will be customised to the needs of each customer. With the upcoming changes to regulations, this is not just the Greatest of all Time, this is the Greatest that will Ever Be. The Aston Martin & RedBull Racing Valkyrie. ð ð¬ð§ð If you don't get it yet, don't worry. You will. _______________________________________________________ #AstonMartin #Valkyrie #AstonMartinValkyrie #RedBull #RedBullRacing #AdrianNewey #MarekReichman #MilesNurnberger #AndyPalmer #TheGreatestOfAllTime #THEGOAT #AMRB001 #KrisSingh #BLESSED A post shared by Kris Singh (@lamborghiniks) on Jan 29, 2018 at 11:39pm PST But that isn't the insane part. So, when Kris got the opportunity to get it customised and basically get anything and everything done, he decided to go the extra AF way. He will now get his yet-to-be-delivered car painted with real moon dust. No, moon dust is not a specific colour. We mean ACTUAL moon dust, straight from the moon. Don't believe us? Have a look at what he posted: BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! My visit to Aston Martin was very inspiring. A few weeks ago @milesnurnberger had commented to me that a spec we were discussing reminded him of a Space Ship. I immediately responded, “The Valkyrie makes a Space Ship look like a Car!” ðð That got me thinking... How do I raise the bar of my spec to be worthy of Valkyrie level? ð¤ If ever there was a machine that could grip the ground and rip around the craters of the Moon like it's on rails, it would be the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Unfortunately, science won't allow me to be the first person to drive on the Moon (gravity is still an issue, they say), but nothing is stopping me from bringing the Moon to my Valkyrie!! ð I have sourced, gotten proper verification, and purchased an actual Rock from the Moon which will be ground to dust and used as a key ingredient in Karosserie Lunar Red which will be the color of my Aston Martin Valkyrie. This will be the first car ever to feature a paint formula that includes actual ingredients from #SPACE !!! Thank You to everyone at @astonmartinlagonda, @redbullracing and Karosserie in Wayne, PA. More renderings will be released in the coming weeks and months. We will also document and share some of the process of making actual Moon Rock part of this very special color being developed exclusively for the most special car of my lifetime: The Aston Martin Valkyrie. ðð½ð Thanks to ð@marcovanoverbeekeð for helping refine my spec and providing me with renderings and thanks to ð @capitolsunsetð for setting the mood of the image on the Moon. More to come!! #ToTheMoonAndBack #ð ððð ______________________________________________________ #AstonMartin #Valkyrie #AstonMartinValkyrie #Moon #MoonRock #KarosserieLunarRed #KrisSingh #Red #BloodRedMoon #ToTheMoonAndBack #ComingSoon #2019 #RaiseTheBar #NASA #RedBull #RedBullRacing #AdrianNewey #MarekReichman #MilesNurnberger #AndyPalmer #AstonMartinRules #GameChanger #LunarRed #F1 #AstonMartinLive #RedWillNeverBeTheSame #TheRedOfAllReds #BLESSED ______________________________________________________ PS - No information or details regarding my source, purchase price, weight of the Moon Rock, or other, will be shared. A post shared by Kris Singh (@lamborghiniks) on Feb 1, 2018 at 4:48am PST The gist is that after getting proper verification, he has purchased an actual rock from the Moon which will be ground to dust and used as a key ingredient in 'Karosserie Lunar Red' which will be the colour of his Aston Martin Valkyrie. That would make it the first car in the world to have a paint formula with ingredients from space. And just when we thought he must be kidding, he further mentioned that he will document the whole process in the coming months. If you're going to be a bear, be a grizzly! ð»ð¨ðð The Karosserie Lunar Red color for my Aston Martin Valkyrie is coming together!!! Jamie at Karosserie came up with the brilliant idea! As a starting point, Karosserie will match the iconic Red found on Christian Louboutin's “Red bottom heels” as the base color before working the moon dust into the formula. Fret not Ladies and Gents - No shoes will be harmed in making this color. ððð âï¸ Why this post? Because that's what you do when you claim new land. @astonmartinlagonda ... the Moon is ours! ð¨ðð¨â³ï¸ðâ¤ï¸ð.

IF YOU FIND THIS OFFENSIVE, please unfollow. It's a harmless joke. @sparky18888 zoom in for the payoff. ð A post shared by Kris Singh (@lamborghiniks) on Feb 3, 2018 at 4:12pm PST While he has clearly mentioned that he won't be discussing about his source or the cost of the moon rock, it didn't stop Jalopnik (https://jalopnik.com/some-guy-is-planning-to-paint-his-aston-martin-valkyrie-1822881863 ) from doing their own calculations after considering multiple factors. Bottom line being that the moon rock would cost him somewhere around $4 million (approx. Rs. 25 crores) which is more than the cost of the hypercar itself. However, it needs to be noted that the cost calculated is of the rocks acquired on an Apollo mission. If Singh's source is something else, it is likely to cost him less. But whatever, it's his money so he can spend it any which way he likes. As for us, we are desperately waiting for his documentation of the whole process (assuming he does undertake it).
  24. Ever since her Bollywood debut in 2016, Saiyami Kher has become a popular name in the Indian glamour industry. The 26-year-old impressed everyone with her acting skills in Rakesh Omprakash Mehra's film 'Mirzya' which also earned her the Dadasaheb Phalke award in the Best Female Debut category. For a girl whose mother Uttara Mhatre Kher is former Miss India and represented her country at the 1982 Miss World pageant, Saiyami has come a long way to establish herself in the industry and looks set to make her family proud. But, while good looks and glamour seems hereditary for her, not many are aware of the skills Saiyami possesses in sports. © Instagram On Monday, the fitness freak gave her fans a glimpse of her efficiency with a badminton racket. Taking to Twitter, Saiyami shared a video of herself going hammer and tongs at the shuttlecock in a gruelling practice session before challenging Saina Nehwal for a pending match between them. Played last evening after very long. @NSaina I'm going to practice really hard to get 2 points from you whenever we play our pending match ð #Badminton #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/cPHbDOB3wE — Saiyami Kher (@SaiyamiKher) February 12, 2018 "Played last evening after very long. @NSaina I'm going to practice really hard to get 2 points from you whenever we play our pending match," Saiyami tweeted with a hashtag 'Monday Motivation'. Waiting for the match ððª.... https://t.co/z9PzNFaaQI — Saina Nehwal (@NSaina) February 12, 2018 Her tweet also evoked a response from India's ace shuttler Nehwal who wrote: "Waiting for the match". Before her stint in Bollywood and modelling, Saiyami was a total sports freak. She played badminton at the national level during her school and college days. And, if that wasn't enough, the fact that Saiyami also played cricket and was part of the Maharashtra State team goes on to highlight her love for sports. My @harbhajan3 inspired action. Friends and some cricket.. a perfect way to spend my Sunday! #cricket #sports #harbajansingh #sundayfunday #bowling #gullycricket A post shared by Saiyami Kher (@saiyami) on Sep 10, 2017 at 5:34am PDT In fact, Saiyami's sports background has also been one of the main reasons behind her envious levels of fitness. “Being a foodie I am not particular about my diet, but I never overeat. Also, I make sure that I run. I usually run 10 km and on days when I feel I need to work out more, given the kind of food I had, I run about 15 km,” she told HT last year. “While shooting for Mirzya (2016) in Ladakh, I used to run to and from my hotel to the set. Exercise for me is not punishment because I have gorged on too much food. But I enjoy doing it to stay fit, and enjoy my food more," she added. âªRoger Federer makes me cry with happiness. He has become the curious case of Benjamin Button. At 36 he plays like he's 18. ⬠âªLONG LIVE THE KING!⬠#federer #rogerfederer #tennis #australianopen #champion A post shared by Saiyami Kher (@saiyami) on Jan 28, 2018 at 4:53am PST Saiyami recalled another incident during 'Mirzya's' shoot where she ran into a former Indian cricketer. “Kiran More (former cricketer) is the father of one of the assistant directors on the film. While visiting his daughter on the sets, he recognised me and complimented me on my fitness. He also told me that I just need two months of proper training to play for India,” she revealed. âªI've learnt cricket, living and being happy just watching you play. A little attempt at trying to look like you @sachintendulkar âª#HappyBirthdaySachin⬠#sachintendulkar #sachinsachin #fangirl #cricket #legend #inspiration #mondaymotivation #straightdrive #smaaash @smaaash_live @adidas.cricket A post shared by Saiyami Kher (@saiyami) on Apr 23, 2017 at 9:46pm PDT Given her experience as a sportsperson, the budding actress wishes to portray a sports personality in their biopic. “Yes, I would love to and hope to do something around sports soon. There are films (being made) on Saina (Nehwal), Mithali Raj, etc. and I feel I could do justice to them, given my skills. Words can't express this feeling! @rogerfederer on centre court . . . #Wimbledon #RogerFederer #Tennis #GrandSlam #ATP #NowWatching #Dreaming #SweetDreamsAreMadeOfThese #Travel #DreamComeTrue #BucketList #Excited #Happy #London #InstaTravel #LondonDiaries #England #Holiday #Vacation #fangirl A post shared by Saiyami Kher (@saiyami) on Jul 12, 2017 at 11:21am PDT I had even played opposite Saina during a Junior National tournament, and she smashed the living daylights out of me (laughs). I am still in touch with her,” she claimed. Well, we couldn't help but wonder; what if Saiyami chose to be a sportsperson and represented India in badminton or cricket? And, anyone who has seen the video above where she's seen driving the ball would agree that this Bollywood hottie would have undoubtedly been a great addition to the Mithali Raj-led Indian women's cricket team.
