  22. Football as a game, for the general viewer, is associated with the goals scored, strikers and star names. A Lionel Messi or a Cristiano Ronaldo is world famous today solely because of their goal-scoring exploits, but when they do score these goals for their clubs and country, we forget that someone, at the back, is always there to protect the lead, someone who does excellent hard work to ensure the opposing team does not score. Defenders! The World Cup in Russia is older by one round, and now that all teams have played out their first games, it's time to name a few top defenders who could prove crucial for their nation's run in at the tournament in Russia. Had Italy been playing in Russia, their defence would have taken up at least four spots on this list, but unfortunately, they are not, and we have to make do without them for this edition. While the Italians are imperious defenders, there sure are many who are out there to showcase their skills and protect their nations pride by not scoring but defending with all their heart and will to help their teams progress at the World Cup. 1. Thiago Silva (Brazil) © Reuters When Brazil was thrashed by Germany in the semi-final of the 2014 World Cup, it was the lack of leadership in defence that lost them the match in this manner. Thiago Silva was suspended for the game, and his absence was deeply felt by his teammates. Such is the importance of the 33-year-old to this Brazil side, and at the World Cup, no one doubted that he would be the first choice. Former club teammate David Luiz was dropped from the team and Marquinhos, has been left on the bench so far by Brazil, leaving the keys to the defence in the able hands of Silva. With Brazil drawing their first game against Switzerland, Silva played a key role in damage control. If Brazil is to travel the distance in Russia, Silva would have to be at his best and lead the team from the back. 2. Nicolas Otamendi (Argentina) © Reuters Argentina has not been known for their defence since the entire limelight is always stolen by their prodigious attackers up front, most notably a certain Lionel Messi. Going back to the 2014 World Cup Final, current first choice defender Nicolas Otamendi was not present in the starting lineup, as other experienced stars were preferred. Today, the scene has changed entirely for the Manchester City defender. In the last four years, slowly but steadily Otamendi has developed a reputation for being a hard man in defence and the previous season with his club showed that. City won the Premier League, and without a doubt, the Argentine was one of their star performers. Now at the World Cup, there will be a lot of pressure on him to defend in matches and help Argentina reach the World Cup final in successive tournaments. 3. Sergio Ramos (Spain) © Reuters Four Champions League titles in the last five years speak something about a team and its captain. Ramos has been the backbone of this highly successful Real Madrid side in the previous five years or so and at 32-years of age, he is showing no signs of slowing down or a lack of hunger. Already a World and double European Champion with Spain, there is hardly anything left for the defender to win in World football. Yet, he will be hungry for success at Russia and lead his team at the World Cup, as the Spaniard bid to reclaim the world title and reinstate their dominance on international football. In the new era post the 2010 World Cup, Ramos has been the undisputed leader for Spain and will have to perform at his best if he wants to achieve more success for his team in Russia. Watch out for him in the next games. 4. Mats Hummels (Germany) © Reuters Germany is a complete side, with the best of attackers, goalkeepers, midfielders, and defenders to choose from. Their manager of 12 years now, Joachim Low has seen the rise and fall of many star names in his side but has kept few players consistently in the team, year after year. Mats Hummels is one of them. The towering Bayern Munich defender has been one of the best in the business in his position. After success in the 2014 tournament, this is Germany's real chance to lay the foundation for absolute domination on international shores, and Hummels is undoubtedly going to play a vital role in that quest. He is one of the most experienced players in the side and with upcoming games at the World Cup where Germany aim to dominate and reach the Final yet again, Hummels will play the most critical role in the defence. 5. John Stones (England) © Reuters The criticism of English players has always made it to the front pages for a long time now. Year after year, World Cup after World Cup, English players receive more scrutiny than praise. John Stones is no stranger to that world either, but Russia represents a unique chance for him to surprise everyone. England, to everyone's surprise, has opted with a rather young pair of central defenders and John Stones suddenly finds himself as the leading man at the back. After a reasonably successful season with Manchester City, the Englishman will be hoping to inject fresh ideas into a defence that has traditionally opted for ageing, experienced defenders in tournaments such as the World Cup or Euros. If England shows signs of progression, that sure would be due to a rock solid foundation laid in defence and John Stones will be a definite part of it. 6. Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal) © Reuters The only African player on this list, Kalidou Koulibaly has forged his reputation as one of the hard men in football. His physical presence would be enough to terrify any set of attackers, and, his growing stature with club and country tells a great story of his development. He was tipped for success at the World Cup as Senegal made their way back into the tournament after a 16-year gap, and there is already pressure on Koulibaly's shoulders to take his side as far as possible. On paper, Senegal, known either for their 2002 World Cup exploits or Sadio Mane, their star forward; but the real deal lies at the back with Koulibaly as he marshals his defence expertly, in the way he did against Poland in their first game in Russia, beating their European opponents and keeping a confident Robert Lewandowski in his pockets for 90-mins. 7. Jan Vertonghen (Belgium) © Reuters Jan Vertonghen from the outside seems like a quiet personality, but he is someone who does his job so efficiently that quietly that often people don't realise his value to the team. If Tottenham could be regarded as a modern and successful team in the last three years, then Vertonghen has played a crucial role in that transformation. A regular for Belgium, Vertonghen has been a stable presence at the back as he oozes composure from his style of play. Not the goal-scoring defender every team needs, he certainly knows how to stop one from opposing attackers. At the World Cup in Russia, he will be looking to expertly lead his side too as far as possible, and finally erase the tag of his national team as being failures at tournaments such as this. To conclude this, Vertonghen is as essential to Belgium as Eden Hazard is, and he is the real leader in this team. 8. Hector Moreno (Mexico) © Reuters Hirving Lozano might have scored the ultimate goal that helped Mexico start their World Cup campaign with a win over defending champions Germany, but how many of you saw what Hector Moreno did to protect that lead? If Germany is regarded as one of the most potent attacking side, then Moreno & Co. Did an excellent job protecting a slender lead for over 55-minutes. Additionally, the time before the goal was scored cannot be forgotten as well, as Moreno expertly led his backline to sniff out potential attacking moves from the Germans. At the World Cup now, Mexico has boosted their chances after that win and Moreno has to be at his best to achieve probably what was earlier deemed impossible. The Mexican side might not have the caliber to win the World Cup, but they sure have shown signs of advancement in their play. Moreno for his part will logically be playing in his last World Cup and will be hoping his performances here makes it a memorable one. 9. Kari Arnason (Iceland) © Reuters One cannot calculate the importance of individual stars in the Icelandic team. Iceland has been a revelation for World Football and duly entered the big stage at Euro 16' and showed a rare spirit of the game by reaching the quarterfinals, also beating England en route. Performing above expectations has been their USP, and they duly showed that against Argentina in their opening game, and finished the game with a draw and their central defender Kari Arnason played a big part. Argentina is an attacking side, and Lionel Messi alone took 11-shots during that game. Arnason was very much responsible for keeping Messi not seeking the perfect shots that he could possibly score, but also took care of other attackers and nullified any chances Argentina potentially were trying to create. Iceland is an outside bet to qualify for the knockout stages, and if they do, it would be based on their ability to defend against teams and in the way they did against Argentina. Arnason in this quest will have to play a big part, and at 35-years of age, he sure does seems to have plenty of energy left in him. 10. Samuel Umtiti (France) © Reuters A substantial presence for Barcelona for the best part of the last two years, Samuel Umtiti has proven to be a total defender for his national side as well. Breaking into this French team at the back of a relatively successful Euro 2016 campaign where they reached the Final, Umtiti's presence has been compared to the likes of Lilian Thuram. A regular for club and country, France too, like England have opted for the younger crop of defenders in Umtiti and Varane, and among those two, Umtiti is the clear leader. Umtiti has the experience and presence at the back to terrify any set of attackers. He also chips in with the occasional goal from set pieces, for the French are a valuable asset. Despite not having the best of starts at the World Cup where he conceded a penalty against Australia, there are big things expected from him in defence as France bid for success at the World Cup. If France is to achieve any success in Russia, Umtiti will play a crucial role in taking his team there. With the many imperious attacking talents in the French squad leading the headlines, Umtiti will be looking to do his work in the shadows and aim to achieve total success for his team.
  23. Apart from 'Race 3', if there's anything else Bollywood has given us – it is biopics and more biopics. And out of the lot, there's one that has all the ingredients to become a commercial success and a critically acclaimed movie. We're talking about Ranbir Kapoor's 'Sanju', an upcoming biopic on the life of Sanjay Dutt. RHF After watching the jaw-dropping trailer and poster of 'Sanju', we're convinced this is going to be Ranbir's best performance so far. In fact, he is so dedicated towards his role that he even dared to pose and dance with a Naagin. Well, not really! But, someone who plays a naagin on-screen. Recently, actress Karishma Tanna posted this picture on her Instagram, where she can be seen happily posing with Vicky Kaushal and Ranbir (with sunglasses on). The trio look like they might break into the party mode anytime soon and the 80s vibe only excites us more. Their outfits are enough for us to figure out that it's probably for a song in the movie. Happy faces one frame!!! Watch out for more!!;) ðâ¤ï¸ @hirani.rajkumar @vickykaushal09 #ranbirkapoor #karishmatanna #ktians #sanju #Repost @filmfare with @get_repost ã»ã»ã» #RanbirKapoor, @karishmaktanna and @vickykaushal09 in the latest still from #Sanju. A post shared by Karishma Tanna (@karishmaktanna) on Jun 19, 2018 at 6:18am PDT Earlier, there were reports that Karishma will play the role of Madhuri Dixit in the biopic. However, we found out later that Sonam Kapoor's character will play Sanjay's love interests at the beginning of his film career. Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, 'Sanju' also stars Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt, Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma, Manisha Koirala and Jim Sarbh in prominent roles. The movie is expected to release on June 29.
  24. Kapil Sharma is a name that needs no introduction. He is one of the greatest comedians of India and the favourite child of controversy. Be it his fight with Sunil Grover, both mid-air and on Twitter, his infamous telephonic conversation with a journalist or his show dropping massively in the TRP chart and eventually taking a toll on his health; controversies and problems have somehow always managed to stick around Kapil Sharma. And since then, the comedian was missing from the scene for quite some time. Viral Bhiyani But now Kapil is back in Mumbai and was spotted at the airport yesterday. Kapil recently connected with his fans on Twitter and mentioned that he's put on some weight and will come back soon to entertain his fans. But, honestly we did not expect this massive change. Viral Bhayani People undergo transformations, but looks like Kapil had, for the lack of a better word, a reverse transformation. Kapil was spotted with his furry pet, smiling for the shutterbugs. Honestly, you won't be able to recognize him if he walks past you. You will think he's some random guy who is happily walking his dog. Viral Bhayani Having said that, now that Kapil is back, his fans can rejoice. Maybe we can expect some new shows from him soon.
  25. Karan Johar had officially entered our list of Bollywood Style Icons, much before his well curated looks at #SonamkiShaadi. From talk shows, film screening to award functions, Karan adds a bit of bling wherever he goes. This time though, Karan decided to wear a shiny new accessory and that too around his neck. While hosting the 55th Femina Miss India contest last night, Karan stepped out in what can be easily cited as the brightest bow-tie in the history of fashion. See for yourself. © Viral Bhayani Seen wearing an all-black 3 piece-suit, Karan brought the glam with those dandelion flat Christian Louboutin shoes. Though the shoes did shine on, what caught our attention was the accessory on his neck. We don't even know whether we should call it a bow-tie or a piece of jewellery. Whatever the correct terminology maybe, Karan just pulls it off in style. © Gucci After searching our archives, we found out that this piece was seen on the ramp during Gucci's 2018 Cruise show. It is basically a neck collar with an emblem in the middle and leaves coming out of it. The accessory looks right out of some Greek God's wardrobe. Set in gold, the bow-tie looks like it just descended from heaven and found its way right around Karan's collar making it the talking point of the evening! © Viral Bhayani Whatever said and done, Karan never fails to impress us, but we weren't ready for such a bold and gold fashion move. Karan has clearly shut down everyone who think that men can't pull off a piece of jewellery on the neck! With this style statement, Karan has officially entered our list of Greatest Bollywood Celebrities in the History of Fashion. Takeaway: Don't be afraid to add a little bling to your look!
  26. You have a date. You're ecstatic. You have figured out your outfit. Everything is in place. Before heading out, though, you look at the mirror and your face looks like it needs major help, even though you just washed it with a face wash and even applied a cream. Especially, given India's extreme weather, this is a major challenge for everyone. Don't worry, for we have the solution - and it works like magic. You just need to try it out once and you'll swear by it forever. © Twitter The product we are talking about, is something you definitely find in your girlfriend's bag. It's called a 'BB cream'. A BB cream is just like a regular cream, except you need to apply just a tiny bit as compared to a regular cream. It's tinted, but don't worry about that, as that is precisely the reason that gives you an even complexion, post application. © Twitter Technically, a BB cream is neither a cream nor a foundation - but something in between. It's much lighter than a foundation (which you probably have never used unless you work in front of the camera), and heavier than a regular cream. You can use it just like you use a regular cream - but make sure the quantity is much, much less, and you apply it all over your face in tiny dots and then blend it really well with your finger tips. © Twitter Apart from making your face look like a million bucks, BB creams usually come with other benefits as well, such as sun protection and anti-oxidising agents. We say try it, and embrace it like a man. Here are some of the best BB creams in the market: 1. Garnier BB Cream With an SPF of 24, this BB cream here mosturises your face and keeps it fresh for 8+ hours. Price: INR 135/- © Amazon India Buy it here 2. POND'S BB Cream It brightens your face instantly, and SPF 30 is amazing for protection against the sun. Price: INR 140/- © Amazon India Buy it here 3.
