5 Grooming Habits That'll Make A Guy Better At Fashion

Consider this: you're in a double-breasted suit, with your mane in the best form and are greeting your next, big potential client. But while you're shaking his hands, his eyes wander and he notices that very unpleasant-looking — or rather, yellow — collar of your white dress shirt.  Now, chances are, he's either actually going to cite it to you (which is very rare, unless he's a work-friend) or well, just make a face and keep it to himself. Whatever may be the case, the baseline remains: your grooming habits can creep into your sartorial ways of living, easily. So, keep a close watch, boy.  Here, we list down 5 grooming habits that'll ensure your style-skills are always on point and come what your way, no one's going to notice anything amiss. © Instagram/Kartik Aaryan 1. To Avoid: Yellow Shirt Collars Maintain: Neck Hygiene It's a rather simple task, so to say, but neck hygiene is ignored by one and all. But starting today, begin with wiping the dirt off it with attention daily. Exfoliate the area every two days and trim any unwanted strands in/around the neck region and avoid too much hair product trickling down your neck (use a bare-minimum amount at the back of your hair).  © Hex Performance 2. To Avoid: The Absence Of Sandals In Your Wardrobe Maintain: Foot Hygiene (Or Get A Pedicure Regularly) Sandals are lovely. Even more, when the mercury rises and keeping your skin exposed is the best way to live. But what if you have disgusting feet? Well, you shouldn't have disgusting feet. Opt for a frequent pedicure or indulge in the little things at home: scrub your feet well, ensure you kick the dead skin cells off, trim your toenails regularly, apply a foot cream before hitting the bed daily and using a filer, always shape your nails. © Instagram/Best Sandals For Men 3. To Avoid: Not Wearing Tank Tops (Because Of Back Hair) Maintain: A Well-Planned, Hair-Trimming Regime  Strands of hair as natural entities, grow almost everywhere on the body. But well, on the back? Now, that's an unpleasant sight (but hey, it's a natural process too). But since you want to look your best in a tank top, turn to shaving/waxing your back hair. And while that's important, it's equally vital for you to maintain the skin on your back too.  While shaving the hair, always use a pre-shave oil, fresh blades, and invest in post-shave care as well. And in general, don't forget to scrub and moisturise the skin on your back as well.

The Only Jacket Every Man Needs To Travel Anywhere In The World

If there's anything that's best friends with travel-anxiety, it's the thought of not having packed for dwindly temperatures. Unfortunately, as the landscapes change and latitudes variate, the weather starts to play its cards. Meaning: every time you step into a new surface area, you've got to take efforts to keep yourself warm and alternatively, cool (depending upon the city you're travelling to).  Add to this, the air conditioning aboard and the cold-blast at the airport, and you're in for some serious airport-layering troubles.  In that case, we've got you a terrific deal today.  Lightweight parka jackets — the sole warriors of fickled weather — are going to save your day, when unexpected chills/warm weather are wrecking every hour possible. Throw them on as it starts to get cold and slip out of them if the mercury strikes. All in all, just keep them handy and use them, selfishly.  © Margaret Howell That said, it won't be completely out-of-the-blue to mention, that parkas are easy to stow as well. They're capable of being folded into the smallest size (meaning: you don't need a lot of space to store them) and well, don't get too crushed if stored in the right manner. Result? You can keep them on even if you're not at the airport anymore and are off to meet that important one. Believe us, she won't notice the jacket's travel-fatigue! © Just Jared A few of you may ask: what if it starts raining in the city I'm travelling to? Well, then for #1: most parkas comes with a hood, to ensure that your mop, which is laced with hair products, isn't exposed to the unexpected shower and stays in shape, come what may. For #2, since most parka jackets are water-proof too, you won't be answering any embarrassing how-did-you-get-wet queries once you arrive.  © Grailed But the question remains: what's the trick to invest in the best and most versatile one? We'd say, go for a neutral shade. Blacks, greys, blues or even olive greens (they're almost like neutrals in parka jackets) can be easily paired with any outfits of choice and in fact, hop them over your two-piece suits too and you'd realise how they'd seamlessly blend in. Just remember to take them off before entering the boardroom! Final takeaway: Temperatures may change, but your jacket needn't. That said, if you've arrived at your destination and it's a hell lot chillier, open that suitcase and layer up further. Don't catch a cold!

Streetstyle Goals: Shahid Kapoor Wore A White Kurta With The Strangest Pair Of Jeans We've Seen

Shahid Kapoor pretty much ticks off all the checkboxes, when it comes to a 'complete package' in terms of a Bollywood 'hero'. Be it acting, dancing skills, fitness, or good looks, Shahid aces it all.  One area in which he has especially impressed us recently, is his style game. Shahid has been experimenting a lot with what he wears, and honestly, he nails it every time. The latest instance was his recent appearance in an all-white streetstyle outfit, in which he incorporated a - wait for it - white kurta. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani What bowled us over, however, is the pair of jeans he wore with it. They have to be hands down the strangest pair of jeans we have seen in Bollywood. The best thing about the pair is that they confuse you and play with your head. © Viral Bhayani Are they a pair of jeans? Or a kurta with a couple of cool vertical stripes? Or just a pair of white track pants? It's not until you see the rips and the distressed pattern that you can realise that they are, in fact, probably the coolest pair of jeans you've seen! © Viral Bhayani Coming to labels, Shahid is wearing a white kurta and a shirt jacket (shacket, if we may), by designer Kunal Rawal. The jeans we can't get over is from Embellish. © Viral Bhayani Shahid's shoe and accessory game is also absolutely on point. He's wearing a dope pair of black and white sneakers by Dong-Jun Kang, and statement sunnies by Irresistor. Stylist Anisha Jain clearly is on top of her game, we must say. © Viral Bhayani What we love about the outfit is that it's deceivingly simple, yet extremely eye-catching while being sophisticated. Who knew streetstyle could turn out this elegant? Well, now we know!

'Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se' Trailer Proves That The Deols Need To Stop Selling Crappy Comedy

The trailer for 'Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se' is out and prepare yourself for some bad news, which I'm sure you were already expecting. If you are a Deol clan fan and were waiting for this film with bated breath, then you are in for great disappointment. The third instalment in the YPD franchise just makes us wonder that why on earth can't Bollywood get over making sequels? How about making a good movie, instead of trying to cash in on the success of its previous parts? © Saregama Music The movie, no doubt, brings together Dharmendra, Sunny, and Bobby Deol. And who doesn't like seeing one big happy family in one frame? Yes, we love the Deols but can't say the same for their upcoming movie. © Saregama Music Bringing the same old stale comedy is YPDPS, which revolves around the same cliché concept that Bollywood has been selling for decades now. © Saregama Music Dharmendra is introduced to us as Yamla Parmar — a womaniser and an alcoholic. The man is full of life and aims to enjoy every moment. In fact, he also imagines about having pretty women all around him. But, the question here is, why make him play the same role again and again? He is a legend and sorry to say this, but this is downright insulting! © Saregama Music Sunny Deol is a 'vaidh' (Doctor) this time, whose 'dhai-kilo-ka-haath' still has the same effect but we doubt Millenials would connect with it. © Saregama Music Bobby Deol, who was brought to life by Salman Khan in 'Race 3', is seen trying to please actress Kriti Kharbanda in the movie. © Saregama Music This time, the three Punjabi mundas travel to Gujarat, the dry state, and pretend to be Gujus. Adding to the ruckus are Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Rekha (do the makers really think they can save this movie?). And that's not it; they are here with a new version of “Rafta Rafta Dekho Aankh Meri Ladi Hai”, because Bollywood's new goal is all about murdering iconic numbers. So much in the name of originality, we tell you! Check out the trailer here: Directed by Navaniat Singh, 'Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se' is slated for release on 15th August.

Anurag Kashyap Has Finally Made A Film With No Curse Words, 12 Songs & We Are Stunned

Taking a different road altogether, director Anurag Kashyap has given us something that we haven't seen before. Known for making dark and complex movies, Kashyap, this time, has experimented with a love-triangle. Believe it or not, one look at the trailer for 'Manmarziyan' and you can't help but love it as much as we do. © Eros Now The trailer stays true to its title and brilliantly shows the twisted and messy human relationships and emotions. Abhishek Bachchan is back on the silver screen after two years and saying that we are pleased to see him would be an understatement. Junior Bachchan's appearance is soothing and heartfelt. Adding to the leads are Tapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal, who are definitely Bollywood's great finds. © Eros Now Unlike Kashyap's previous movies, 'Manmarziyan' comes across as a surprise. There is no brooding Nawazuddin Siddiqui, no coal mining kingpin, no abuses, no gangster clashes, no bloodshed and no gunshots. Yes, 'Manmarziyan' is nothing like his previous films and it's just about pure human emotions, which Kashyap has beautifully showcased in the trailer. © Eros Now TBH, you will be very surprised to know that this movie has no cuss words, instead, has a whopping 12 songs. Well, no doubt Kashyap indeed makes brilliant movie albums. The 'Gangs of Wasseypur' soundtrack is an example of sheer brilliance and still rules our playlist, and we expect the same from this movie as well. And let's admit it, we already love the background score from the trailer. © Eros Now The 12-song journey is bound to leave the audience enthralled, and let us assure you that they won't be long and you won't be bored. © Eros Now A source told Spotboye, "A few of them even take the story forward. 'Manmarziyan' has turned out very well and it's gonna be fun. Nobody will believe when he/she sees the film that this has been directed by Anurag Kashyap." Well, we are totally rooting for this movie and can't wait to see how this complicated love story unfolds.

Bad News For Music Fans: The New iPhones May Not Come With The Lightning To Headphone Jack Adapter

Apple ditched the headphone jack two years ago when the company launched the iPhone 7. It forced users to either buy a Bluetooth headphone or use the Lightning-to-Headphone Jack Adapter for wired headphones. Apple included the adapter with the smartphone so that it does not cause more inconvenience for its users and so far, it has panned out well.  © MensXP A new report by Macrumors says that Apple is not going to bundle the adapter with the new iPhones in 2018. According to the Barclays research report, Cirrus Logic, a supplier for the adapter has apparently confirmed that this situation may just be true.  © BCCL "Reported a beat but gave mixed guidance with revenue below but earnings ahead. Cirrus didn't update its FY19 guide… but they did finally confirm the dongle loss, adding more support for our below estimates," the research note reads.  © Apple Apple has been committed to a wireless future as the company launched the AirPods and BeatsX headphones that can connect to the iPhone reliably and easily. It's all thanks to the W1 Bluetooth Chip incorporated by Apple in these headphones.  So, if Apple has decided to remove the adapter from the retail box, it won't make much difference as people have either started using the AirPods or some other Bluetooth headphone. There are rumours that the new iPad will also ditch the headphone jack and possible the adapter as well.  © YouTube The removal of the adapter may generate controversy, but you can always buy the adapter separately. It's priced relatively cheaper than most Apple accessories and is easily accessible on various e-commerce portals and Apple authorised sellers.  Would you be able to live without the Lightning to Headphone adapter? Or are you already using a wireless headphone? Let us know in the comments.  Source: Macrumors

Chicken Tikka, Dal & Lasagne: Team India's Lunch Menu Steals The Limelight On Day 1 At Lord's

After enduring a heart-breaking loss at Edgbaston, the Indian cricket team was looking to turn things around against England in the second Test at Lord's on 9th August. The Indian fans were surely expecting some noticeable changes in the line-up with hopes of an improved showing from the world's no. 1 Test side. But, contrary to popular perception, the turn of events on the first day left everyone disappointed. Thanks to the incessant rains in London, the first day's play was called off, leaving the fans and the players from both the sides frustrated. Will India make a good start at Lord's or can England tame the visitors in the second consecutive game? All these questions were lingering on the minds of fans and cricket pundits alike ahead of the second Test. And, Day 1 eventually being washed off only made everyone wait a little more for the answers. Update - Day 1 play has been called off here at @HomeOfCricket.#ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/hCY5Z2dHC6 — BCCI (@BCCI) August 9, 2018 With not even a single ball was bowled on Day 1, cricket fans didn't have much to enjoy, which probably explains why the Indian cricket team's menu for lunch ended up grabbing the spotlight. While it was pouring down heavily outside, Virat Kohli's men were digging into chicken tikka, dal and lasagne amongst other dishes. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared the picture of the players' lunch menu for Day 1 on Twitter. "Delicious and how. Lunch menu for Day 1 here at @HomeOfCricket. #ENGvIND," the Indian cricket board tweeted. Delicious and how.

Lunch menu for Day 1 here at @HomeOfCricket.#ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/WomcJwF4U8 — BCCI (@BCCI) August 9, 2018 The menu began with wild mushroom and chestnut soup which was followed by fresh lamb saddle, roasted stone bass and chicken lasagne. In order to make the visitors feel at home, the menu also included Indian dishes like chicken tikka curry, paneer tikka curry, dal and mixed vegetables. Then, there were prawns, mashed potato, basmati rice, popadoms, baby carrots and corn, French beans, garden salad and boiled eggs to satiate the hunger of Indian cricketers. For dessert, the players had a wide range to choose from: apple pie custard, dark chocolate and cherry cheesecake, fresh fruit salad and ice-cream. The tweet carrying details of the players' lunch menu was equally liked, shared and commented upon. While some couldn't stop themselves from drooling over the delicacies, others wasted no time in using their wit to poke fun at the Indian cricket board. No Amritsari Kulcha
No Laccha Paratha
No Missi Roti
No Butter Naan
No Kadhi Chawal

6 Of The Tallest Players In NBA History Who Have The Right To Be Called Giants

Basketball has always been in favour of those with good height and reach and the NBA is no exception to that rule. It's no wonder that we have seen some really tall guys play. You have to literally look up to them because they can make you feel pretty small, like in the true sense of the term. In the last seven decades or so we have seen some really tall guys on the court. At five feet eleven and a half inches, I used to think I had decent height. However, when I watch an NBA game now, I just wonder, how did I even dare to think that? So in this land of giants, let's look at the ones who lead the pack with the highest of heights: 1. Gheorghe Muresan - 7 feet 7 inches © Getty Images His longest stint was with Washington Bullets (now the Washington Wizards) between 1993-95 and 1995-97. He was named the NBA Most Improved Player in 1996. With over 3000 points to his name, this Romanian towered over his opponents and always had the height advantage. 2. Manute Bol - 7 feet 7 inches © Getty Images Born in Sudan, Manute shares the tallest height with Gheorghe and spent his best years with Washington Bullets (1985-88), Golden State Warriors (1988-90) and Philadelphia 76ers (1990-1993). He migrated to the US after a civil war broke out in his native land. The man's arm span was 8 feet 6 inches which is the most in NBA history and his reach was 10 feet 5 inches. 3. Shawn Bradley - 7 feet 6 inches © Getty Images He played for the Dallas Mavericks for 8 years (1997-2005). Born in West Germany as his family was stationed there, he holds dual citizenship in Germany and USA. In the 2000-01 season, he blocked 228 shots for Dallas. In his first game for Philadelphia 76ers (1993-94), he blocked 8 shots in 25 minutes. 4. Yao Ming - 7 feet 6 inches © Getty Images Pretty much the guy who put Asia on the NBA map. This Chinese player could jump above most of those facing off on court, of course his height was an extra bonus. From 2002 to 2011 he played for the Houston Rockets. He reached the NBA Playoffs four times, and the Rockets won the first-round series in the 2009 postseason, their first playoff series victory since 1997. He retired in 2011 because of a series of foot and ankle injuries which made him miss many games in his last six seasons. 5. Chuck Nevitt - 7 feel 5 inches © Getty Images The highlight of his career was winning the 1985 NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers. He is the tallest player ever to have been part of a title winning team. 6. Pavel Podkolzin - 7 feet 5 inches © Getty Images Pavel played for Dallas Mavericks from 2004 to 2006. He was a member of the junior Russian national basketball team that won the silver medal at the 2000 European Cadets Championship. Utah Jazz picked him in the 2004 NBA Draft. He was promptly traded to the Dallas Mavericks for a future first-round pick in the 2005 NBA Draft.

5 Ways In Which Google Home Has Changed My Life For The Better

Google has been nailing it when it comes to launching complimentary hardware for their ecosystem. When it was first announced, I bought the Google Home and the Home mini from the United States, before it was even launched in India. I got to use it extensively for a few months before the official Indian launch and today, it has become an integral part of my life — I simply can't live without it.  I'm deeply embedded in the Google and Apple ecosystem, however, Google Home is my go-to smart speaker. I use the smart assistant speaker for various purposes and here's how it changed my life:  1. It Helps Me Wake Up On Time © Akshay Bhalla I'm a very heavy sleeper and due to that fact, I don't wake up to my traditional alarms on my smartphone. I usually end up putting 35 alarms to help me wake up in the morning, however, I found a new way to make it easier for me to wake up. I tried waking up with the default alarm sounds on the Google Home but that didn't work either.  I ended up telling my Google Home to wake me up in the morning with some music and now it works like a charm. In order to make this work in India, you have to subscribe to Google Play Music (which I'm not a fan of). You simply have to say “Hey Google, wake me up at 7:00 AM every weekday with Hip-Hop music” and Google Home takes care of the rest.  I'm also a big fan of snoozing my alarm and there have been countless times where I've told Google Home (in my sleep) to “wake me up in 20 minutes”. It's probably my most used feature up until now.  2. I Can Control My Entertainment System © YouTube I use the Chromecast audio and Chromecast ultra extensively every day in order to listen to music/podcasts or watch TV shows on Netflix. The Google Home can control the two connected devices as long as you are on the same Wi-Fi network. I can simply play/pause music on the chrome cast audio or my TV shows on Netflix by simply saying the relevant command.  Another handy feature on the Google Home is that it will automatically pause your content if you get a phone call. You will no longer have to hunt down your remote as Google Home will take care of it automatically.  3. It Helps Me Navigate  Lately, I've been using this feature more often than anything else because of the current weather condition in Delhi or when there are some goons on the road disrupting traffic. Before I leave my house, I always ask my Google Home for the shortest route to my destination. Google Home takes weather and the current traffic situation into consideration and sends me the directions on my phone.  4. It's My Constant Reminder As I Tend To Forget Everything  © Google I have a very bad habit of forgetting appointments, shopping lists or even things I need to do at work and home. I use the Google Home to remind me things at a later time such as paying bills. I even use it to make notes when I'm reviewing a phone or formulating story ideas (that's how this story came about). Google Home has officially replaced my notepad on the bedside table.  5. It Makes Me Laugh Google Home is funny at times. A post shared by Akshay Bhalla / Høax (@editorinchief) on Aug 10, 2018 at 12:48am PDT When I'm totally bored out of my mind and not watching anything on Netflix, I tend to ask my Google Home some weird or funny questions. It's probably my favourite pastime and I often find myself laughing hard, thanks to some ridiculous answers by Google Assistant. Just ask “Tell me a joke”. You can even say “Ok Google, I'm Bored” and Google Assistant will reply, “You think you're bored, I came out of a cardboard box. But I learned a lot of jokes in there.”  There are plenty of other rudimentary things you can do with Google Home such as get a weather update or set a timer when you are cooking something. You can even play games on the Google Home if you want to kill some boredom. Google Home is not only for the tech fanatics, it's for people who want to manage their life better or use it for productivity. It's a smart speaker for everyone.

5 Golden Rules To Live By If Putting On Muscle & Getting Big Is Your Goal

I am sure you are familiar with the concept of 'bulking'. So, before I lay down the 5 golden rules for putting on mass, here are a few things that you must always consider first:  1) Bulking requires you to eat plenty of food, which you may not be used to. 2) A little bit of fat gain in the bulking phase is completely fine. Don`t fret over it. 3) Consistency is a must for a successful bulk. 4) Utilizing gym time doing more compound exercises is better than isolation work when bulking. Almost everyone in the gym culture, at some point in time, feels unhappy at their current size and wants to take their physique to the next level by adding more mass. This doesn`t come easy especially when you are an ectomorph aka a skinny dude. 1. Stop Doing Any Form Of Steady State Cardio. Stick To Walking Most people have this fear of getting fat when on a bulking phase. So in order to counter that, they will try adding more and more sessions of aerobic workouts in their training, which doesn`t really makes sense. You see them running like mad cows or marrying the stationary bike. Cutting and bulking strategies are two very different things and should be treated like that- differently, not simultaneously. If you fail at gaining weight, then cardio is not for you! © YouTube 2) Keep The Rep Range From 6-8 By this, I mean training certain compound lifts like rows, squats, presses, deadlifts etc in the 6-8 rep range. Muscle grows by various mechanisms and mechanical tension is one of them. If you are always lifting in bodybuilding rep range (considered 6-15 usually), you are missing out on a lot of potential to gain a considerable amount of strength, which the 6-8 rep range can provide. 3) Prioritize Rest. Take More Off Days You don`t need to hit the gym every day to gain muscle mass. Training 3-4 days with good intensity can get you there. Resting properly before hitting the gym will allow your body to recover quickly, restore glycogen levels and not let the stress hormone 'cortisol' kill your gains. © Thinkstock Images 4) Use Creatine Creatine is one of the most studied supplements in the field of sports nutrition and is completely safe (unless you have kidney issues or high BP). I`ve been personally using it for the last 6 years without any issues. Just make sure you drink enough water along with it to maximize results. Supplementing with creatine helps you produce more ATP, or in other words, it increases body ATP reserves which in turn gives you more energy to lift more and grow more (provided you are eating enough). Read more about creatine here. 5) Learn To Eat, A LOT! Failure to eat is the failure to get big. Set your surplus calories and get chewing. Track your weight. If it goes up, stick to the set surplus. If it doesn't, add more calories slowly and steadily. If you can eat anymore, add shakes.  But the point is to be very consistent with eating.

Shahid Kapoor's 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' Trailer Is A Fused Bulb Forcefully Lit With Bad Humour

Imagine reaching home after a tiring day at work and your landlord hands you the electricity bill. You look at the bill and you can feel the ground beneath your feet shaking. Why? Because the electricity bill is not in hundreds or thousands, but in several lakhs and you clearly did not see it coming with your greasy glasses. T-Series This is a major problem which our protagonists will fight against for the most part of 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu', a movie that explores the issue of power or electricity theft like no one else.  If you follow Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam on social media, then you must have already come across the posters and regular updates about this movie.  Unfortunately, the trailer that released today is like a fused bulb, which did not create the kind of magic we expected from the makers of 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha'. T-Series After giving us a movie like 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', a brilliant take on the problem of open defecation, our expectations were high from 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu'. However, keeping the weird accent and forced humour aside, the trailer had some good moments from the film's cast - Shahid, Shraddha, Yami and Divyendu Sharma. T-Series Set in the backdrop of a small town in Uttrakhand, the trailer stars Shahid, an advocate by profession, as a carefree person who doesn't care about the problem of power-cuts. In fact, he's made ways with the darkness in his town and starts romanticising with the problem, until his friend (Divyendu Sharma) decides to open a factory and soon gets slapped with an electricity bill of several lakhs.  Under the pressure of being unable to pay the monstrous bill, his friend commits suicide and Shahid decides to drag the electricity company to the court and teach them a lesson. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' is releasing on September 21.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali Likely To Bring Deepika Padukone & Salman Khan Together In His Next Project

For a very long time now, people have been clamouring to see Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone together in a movie, however, no maker was able to pull off this mega star power casting, and now, it seems like Sanjay Leela Bhansali might just have done the unimaginable.

But now, it looks like the fans will finally get what they have been waiting for. If reports are to be believed, Bhansali is keen on casting both the actors in leading roles for his next movie 'Inshallah'. (c) Colors It's no secret that after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone became his ultimate muse. The director and the stunning diva have given us three amazing films so far, 'Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela', 'Bajirao Mastani' and 'Padmaavat', that became blockbusters and were loved by the audience. And now once again, Deepika is his leading lady. Interestingly though, Bhansali seems to be veering towards Salman, instead of Ranveer Singh. (c) SLB Talking about the movie, a source revealed to a leading daily. "Inshallah might be the title of the film that will reunite Sanjay and Salman. He got the title registered last week with IMPAA. And looking at Bhansali's working style, he might take six to nine months to complete the final draft of the script, and he may start shooting by next year, after Salman is done with his other prior commitments including his next film, Bharat.” (c) SLB If things go as planned, then Salman and Bhansali will be working together after a gap of 11 years since 'Saawariya'.  The movie will hit the screens on Eid 2020, and we can't help but say 'Inshallah'.

3 YouTubers Ordered To Clean A Railway Station As Punishment For Doing The 'Kiki Challenge'

I think everyone, including the mysterious Kiki herself, is as done with the stupid 'Kiki Challenge' as I am, and we just want the internet to move on to the next trend and let this one die a peaceful death. But, as sick of it as we are, it's nothing compared to how much the different police departments in our country have come to hate this viral challenge. I mean, after all the PSAs and tweets warning against it, people still don't get it and continue to put their life in danger for some views online. Now, even the Railway Protection Force (RPF) has had to step in to save people from killing themselves.  Recently, a video on the YouTube channel 'Funcho Entertainment' caused a lot of problems for the people running the channel. The 'Kiki Challenge' video posted by Nishant Rajendra Shah (20), Dhruv Anil Shah (23), and Shyam Rajkumar Sharma (24) was considered so dangerous, that all three of them were actually arrested. Side note – the video currently has over 2 million views, so you know stupidity is actually rewarding. It's such a sad world we live in. The part that caused the controversy was when they were dancing to the song in a moving train at Virar station's Platform No. 1. I don't even have to explain how unsafe that is. YouTube A Western Railways official said, “We will take legal action against Dhruv Shah as Funcho Entertainment belongs to him and even he is featured in this video. Making such videos on local trains is illegal.” Twitter And now, the action has been taken as promised and boy, it's a good one. The punishment is so hilarious yet appropriate, and it honestly seems like the best course of action The three were given a penalty for breaking the law at the Vasai railway court, and have been ordered to do the following: - Clean up the Vasai railway station three times this week, - Visit the stations from 11 am to 2 pm and from 3 to 5 pm to prevent other commuters from practising such stunts, - Film themselves raising awareness against such stunts and show it as proof to the court. The culprits have not yet given any statement regarding this but they did write “Everything is fine guys. We're all good. You'll get all the updates of what exactly happened and everything in one of our upcoming video. Till then stay tuned,” in the description of their video. People are loving this punishment and sharing on Twitter how brilliant it is. Truly a brilliant judgement. Clean the railway station for three days. ð No sarcasm, no jokes. I truly appreciate this decision. Simply wish for more such judgements for other petty crimes. #india #kikichallenge #india #Mumbaihttps://t.co/A67nC7xeD4 pic.twitter.com/Dn487WUmG1 — Anirudh (@rudha13) August 9, 2018 This is kind of funny. Next time while boarding a running train, please dont smile. #KikiChallenge #ARRESTED https://t.co/N5Md3iTKbF — Siddhesh Shirwadkar (@PrimeOneSid) August 9, 2018 And, don't forget. We love your safety and can't leave it to be decided by Kiki! #GetInToTheCar #kikiChallenge #InMySafetyFeelings pic.twitter.com/OqOgmPgJA6 — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) August 2, 2018

4 Exercises Everyone With A Desk Job Must Do

Right from desk jockeys to gym monkeys, almost everyone complains of lower back pain. Blame it on the lack of exercise for desk jobbers and overlooking lower back exercises for gym goers.  With this article, I break down 4 of the best exercises that everybody must do to keep lower back pain at bay:  1) Pull Through © YouTube This exercise is great for the glutes. This also teaches you to hinge your hips correctly, which eventually assists in weightlifting, jumping, sprinting and not to mention, humping.   This exercise is so effective that you will find its mention in most of the powerlifting accessory movement programs. Another good thing about this exercise is that it`s fairly easy to learn and doesn`t strain your lower back.  Make your glutes stronger via this exercise and you will see your squat or deadlift numbers rocket up. Use moderate weights and please, no grunting on this exercise. 2) Back Extensions © YouTube You can do this exercise on a regular bench with the help of a partner or on a hyperextension bench by yourself. Doing it on a hyperextension bench is generally better due to additional ROM. Keeping your glutes stationary on the pad, you can work on isolating your lower back.  This exercise is also great for warming up before a heavy deadlift or squat session. Once you have mastered the basic version, you can add resistance in the form of a weight plate or a dumbbell. And if you still feel they are very easy for you, try using a barbell with a wide grip and add load as per your capacity.   3) Floor Hip Extensions © YouTube The best thing about this exercise is that you can do it anywhere to train your glutes and hamstrings (a little). At home, the office, or a park, literally anywhere since it doesn`t require any equipment and is perfect for beginners too. How to do it:- 1. Support yourself on your elbows and one knee. The other knee should be lifted slightly off the floor and just behind the supporting leg. 2. Contract your glutes while you fully extend your leg. Return to starting position. 3. Use ankle weights if it is very easy for you. 4) Rack Pulls © YouTube Also known as deadlift from the knees, this exercise is very common among powerlifters and strongmen. And when I mention Powerlifters and Strongmen, we are talking about the people who have a bulletproof back that can handle 100`s of kilos on deadlift, squats and farmer walks.  It is also one of the very few hardcore lower back exercises that you can do. You can always add weight to the bar as per your level of experience and strength. Daman Singh is an internationally certified sports Nutritionist and an athlete competes in Strongman and powerlifting without the aid of Anabolics .He also runs a YouTube channel named :- SIKHSPACK and you can follow him on Instagram and trains Drug free population .

A Momo Challenge One Doesn't Want To Win, Because It Can Be Your Death

These are the times of the internet where being online and going viral is every netizen's waking dream. While we get the fascination behind the WWW, given that it is home to some of the most awesomesauce, exotic and enlightening content from around the world and across the board, yet we fail to fathom the unrestrained dependence people exhibit towards all things “trending” or “viral”. How acceptable are such forms of validations, be it in the form of likes or views? It wasn't long ago since the trend of undertaking viral social media challenges began, with some of the extremely popular ones being the Ice Bucket Challenge, the Mannequin Challenge and more recently the Kiki Challenge made popular by numerous celebs. While these “challenges” started out as means of harmless entertainment, the ungoverned cyber world has allowed other freaky challenges to make their way into our lives via phones and laptops. The 'Fatal' Momo Challenge © YouTube One such challenge that has surfaced most recently is called the Momo Challenge and it will remind you of the Blue Whale Challenge that troubled the nation not so long ago. Targeted at unsuspecting young minds, this challenge came into the limelight after a 12-year old Argentinian girl allegedly killed herself over the 'challenge'. It works pretty similarly to the Blue Whale Challenge as well - people are lured and given instructions to follow, failing which they are blackmailed and threatened with dire consequences. How It Works © YouTube Mexican Computer Crime Investigation Unit has reported that the challenge started in a Facebook group wherein members were 'challenged' to contact a particular number. Once the contact was established they were ordered to follow instructions and if they refused, they were threatened and sent violent and disturbing images. With Japanese artist Midori Hayashi's artwork 'Mother Bird' as its avatar, the Momo accounts have been found to be connected to three numbers in Mexico, Columbia and Japan. A number of alleged Momo cases have been reported from France, the US, Germany and Mexico. Though there haven't been any reports of the challenge having reached the Indian subcontinent, but with a growing number of Indians subscribing to mobile data services and getting online, the possibility of the challenge reaching India might not be too far into the future. Here Is What You Should Do © Twitter Though the challenge is targeted at teens but there is no denying that a lot of 'adventurous' souls out there might also feel the urge to give this a go, even if simply for the “kicks”.  What we need to do as a society is to accept that the challenge might hit the screens in India any day now and we need to be prepared. Talking about it and cautioning the youngsters around us is a no brainer but the next best thing is to have open conversations around cyber bullying and mindlessly giving in to every other online challenge that surfaces, either for the likes or the kicks you might expect to get out of them. This Momo Challenge surely isn't as fun as the name might suggest and it will do us a great deal of good to give this one a miss.

7 Controversial Horror Movie Posters That Were Banned From Public Display For Strange Reasons

How many times have you walked to your movie hall and stopped midway to check out a movie poster? I do that all the time and I love everything about them. The graphics, the text and of course, the little ambiguous giveaways of the movie mentioned. Posters are usually graphic pieces of art, which are bold and daring in nature. A good movie poster has the artist's work immersed deep in it and the creative license does demand a lot of credit.  Horror movie posters have some extra creativity to make sure the audience quivers with the graphic images on them. Some of them are so graphic, that you'd not want to look at it again! © Tristar Pictures Right now, the content on most horror movie posters has been dialled down a notch, but back in the day, some posters were so graphic, that parents and religious groups protested to have them taken down, for the sake of not terrorising the kids. Here's a list of banned horror movie posters, and each and every one of them makes for an interesting piece of history, keeping its shock value in mind: Saw II (2005) 'Saw II' had an image of two severed fingers which the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) was not too happy about. The image was eventually rectified by replacing the version of the severed fingers with longer fingers, so they wouldn't seem severed on the poster. Old Poster: © Lionsgate Films New Poster: © Lionsgate Films The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007) Okay, I am not sure why this poster was banned by the MPAA. The poster shows an entity dragging a body bag with a hand coming out of it, which is barely that scary! All they did later was replace the hand with a pair of legs! How is that any different? Old Poster: © Fox Atomic New Poster: © Fox Atomic Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) A remarkable poster to mark the end of the franchise and the death of Jason Voorhees, 'Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter' had quite a spine-chilling graphic on it. The iconic image of a knife going through the hockey mask defined the ending well but unfortunately, the poster was considered to be too extreme and the image was replaced with the hockey mask, with no knife at all. Old Poster: © Paramount Pictures New Poster: © Paramount Pictures Teeth (2008) Remember the movie? If you haven't seen it or heard of it, it's time. Although the concept is quite warped. It's about a girl who's sworn to chastity but she falls in love with a boy and when they get around to doing it, she discovers she's a living example of the vagina dentata myth (a vagina with sharp teeth).  She uses that to her advantage and if anyone tries to act fresh with her, she dismantles his member through her vaginal teeth! Okay, I just gave the plot away but it's absolutely hilarious in the scariest way possible. The poster is a visual representation of the movie in a very funny, semi-cartoonish way and although the x-ray poster was quite innovative, it was not approved and had to be changed to something a little less uncomfortable. Yeah, a girl in the bathtub, naked, with her legs apart. Great job on making it a little less uncomfortable, guys. Old Poster: © Roadside Attractions New Poster: © Roadside Attractions Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) The poster was the 8th part of this franchise and was actually quite harmless and really simple too, depicting fairly well what the movie was about. It had Jason slashing his way through the classic 'I heart NYC' logo and that was the main problem. The New York Tourism Bureau was not happy with the way the logo was shown and since they had the copyright on it, they decided to not give the original poster the approval. It was later changed to Jason's mask towering over New York's skyline and that was an absolute awesome poster too. Old Poster: © Paramount Pictures New Poster: © Paramount Pictures Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) Silent Night, Deadly Night' was one of the most controversial horror movies to ever be made in the 80s and all the parents were dead against it. I mean, I don't blame them if Santa's going around town killing kids in the movie!  The movie luckily survived a ban but the poster had to be changed. The original one had an evil man dressed like Santa holding an axe. Even though it was an animated poster, it was still taken down due to protests against it. It was later changed to 'Santa's' hand brandishing an axe, while he's making his way through the chimney *shudders*.  Another one came out later which had a creepy looking reindeer with a red-light backdrop. I don't see the difference really. Isn't that Rudolph? Old Poster: © TriStar Pictures New Poster: © TriStar Pictures Final Destination: 5 (2011) The poster had a skull with knives coming out of it. Completely scary I agree, and that's why it was pulled off when the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received about 13 complaints from parents, saying their children were facing distress after viewing the poster at a local underground subway in London.  It was later changed to the characters in the movie standing on a collapsing bridge.
