  1. Remember Savji Dholakia? The generous diamond-merchant from Surat for whom almost half the country wants to work for. Why? Because he showers his employees with gifts and rewards, while most of us sit in our office cribbing about our jobs. But why are we talking about him now? Because Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's wedding details are out and their hotel rooms cost much lesser than what Dholakia spent on his employees this Diwali. He distributed 600 cars to his employees, at an event that was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Facebook While we don't know how Ranveer and Deepika's sangeet functions are coming around, we've got our hands on something equally interesting - the cost of their hotel rooms in Italy. Ranveer and Deepika are getting married at the Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como on November 14 and 15. According to a report in India Today, the couple and their families are staying at a luxury resort on the east side of Lake Como, instead of a villa. The resort has been booked for the wedding and is being decorated by the florists. According to reports 12 florists were flown in from Florence to decorate the wedding venue.

Given the resort has 75 rooms, then the price is around 25 lakh per day and for a week it cost around 1.73 crores for a week.

Did Ranveer and Deepika make the booking from MakeMyTrip or Goibibo? Instagram Fans of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone can't keep calm as the couple is about to get married in a couple of hours at Lake Como, Italy. Unfortunately, there's nothing else their fans can do apart from looking at their previous pictures, because the couple has asked the wedding guests not to carry mobile phones to the wedding venue in order to respect their privacy.
  2. The passing away of the 95-year-old creator of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, threw the world into a state of shock, and since yesterday, glowing tributes and emotional messages have been pouring in from across the world. Stan Lee passed away on Monday in Los Angeles, and people immediately went online to post their shock and disbelief at the heartbreaking development. Stan Lee! One of the most creative and inspiring creators of all time. R.I.P Stan Lee, the legend, today and always! Thank you for all that you've done, you'll never be forgotten. #StanLeeForever pic.twitter.com/HL6B3zd0Ya — Gonuguntla Sai (@GonuguntlaSai6) November 13, 2018 From the cast of Avengers to crushed fans everywhere, every tribute highlighted how Stan had changed their lives and given them hope and happiness. There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!! — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) November 12, 2018 View this post on Instagram I owe it all to you,,, Rest In Peace Stan... #MCU #Excelsior #legend #rip #stanlee #TeamStark A post shared by Robert Downey Jr. (@robertdowneyjr) on Nov 12, 2018 at 11:26am PST Sad, sad day. Rest In Power, Uncle Stan. You have made the world a better place through the power of modern mythology and your love of this messy business of being human... pic.twitter.com/x6yZ6ClNSX — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) November 12, 2018 Joining the world, the Mumbai Police also posted their tribute to the legend, calling on the common man to be a superhero and continue Stan's legacy. We believe so too, Stan! What a 'marvel'lous life! What a 'marvel' of a life! Let's keep Stan Lee's legacy alive and continue aspiring to be superheroes in our common ways #BeASuperhero #StanLeeForever pic.twitter.com/dD07YWNMx3 — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) November 13, 2018 Stan Lee's death has left a gaping hole in the hearts of people, especially Marvel fans. We sure will miss his energetic presence and jovial attitude, and most of all, his extremely awesome cameos. R.I.P. legend.
  3. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has always been guilty of some of its half-hearted romances, given the female characters from the MCU play very 'unlike female roles', for them to build a stronger romantic narrative. Of course, this view is very subjective but the bit about half-hearted romance not so much. When Stan Lee wrote most of the characters for the MCU, he carefully crafted their relationships and gave them very distinct dynamics. Be that of brotherhood, a mentor/mentee, siblings, frenemies, or even lovers; each equation was build on trust and history, that moulded their dynamic separately. While I am not sure if Lee was an ardent believer of love and romance, he surely did create some relationships based on pure fierceness and love, that never made them leave each other's side. © Walt Disney Studios In recent film franchise, we've seen the MCU get a little better at the love thing though. I remember watching the first Spiderman movie that was released with Toby Maguire and thinking 'wow, this guy's a wimp in the romance department but even so, he gets the damn girl'. Something very co-relational to Lee's interpretation of Spiderman and MJ's dynamic in the comic books. I did enjoy their relationship though. He always chose his responsibilities over loving her, or allowing her to ever get hurt, by revealing his identity or even by leaving her for doing what's right. I always imagined a love like that could never really die! And it didn't. It probably evolved along the way. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures So, keeping the love alive, and Lee's memory intact in all the future frames Marvel produces, here are some of the most iconic romantic relationships shared between two people in the MCU, both from the movie franchise and comic books. (1) Tony Stark & Pepper Potts (Iron Man) The relationship between Pepper and Tony has not just been well developed but sustained throughout the franchise, with additional scenes from 'Infinity War' and 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Pepper is the person Tony has always relied upon and even during his character build-up during 'Civil War', he's seen to be grieving her absence. The fact that she takes care of his needs and wants, gives the two characters so much heat and builds the basis of love between them. © Paramount Pictures While Ironman does entertain the people with humour, sarcasm and his wit, I don't think enough attention is paid to the developing romance between Tony and his woman. I also think the romance bit was an important crux for Ironman and if you see the subtlety of it, Pepper is always the antithesis of Tony. When the audience is losing hope in him she's always there to remind people to be patient and have enough faith in their hero and of course, she does the same for him. It's a beautiful narrative of their subtle love for each other. I guess men can learn to be true to their 'heart' and keep their love going in abundance just like Tony has for Pepper, over time! (2) Peter Parker & Mary Jane (Spiderman) Peter Parker and Mary Jane are one of the most iconic stories in both comic book lore and the movies. They've had each other's back for a long time and have gone through Green Goblins, Doc Oc's and Civil Wars together and survived. Jane was Parker's childhood love and that's the purest love that can ever exist and building a narrative of that through a comic book, is an exceptionally well-kept romance! © Marvel Comics The love they had had for each other was so precious that Mephisto wanted it as barter. That's when Jane made a deal with Mephisto that resulted in Peter and her never getting married. Well, you win some, you lose some! Ultimately they don't really end up together or get married, but Jane did tell Parker that their love was so strong that it would find its way back, eventually! Sigh! Remarkable dedication and pure honesty is what true love is all about after all. Every man should definitely learn how to love in the purest sense, despite the responsibilities overburdening his shoulders. (3) Peter Quill & Gamora (Guardians Of The Galaxy) While there has been a romantic liaison between Peter and Gamora in the past, there has been some serious romantic development between them in Infinity War. They exchange their 'I love yous' but Gamora also tries to convince Peter to kill her just so she doesn't fall into the hands of Thanos. He, of course, can't kill his one and only love, can he? Of course, he can. He does take his gun out to kill her while she's in Thanos's grip but bubbles instead of bullets come out of his gun. Any guesses why? Not only did he respect Gamorás wishes, he even sacrificed his one true love for what she willed when the time had come How many men do that nowadays? © Walt Disney Studios (4) Storm & T'Challa (Black Panther) Yup, we've usually seen Storm single in the movie franchise and T'challa with Nakia, but in the MCU comic series, the relationship between these two was great. They were actually married to each other for 6 years before they separated. They were also very similar in many ways. Both were warriors, both lost their parents at a very young age and they both understood what it was like to have the weight of the world on their shoulders. The only problem was that their relationship wasn't given much importance in comic books and it was fast-tracked and there was a giant jump from the time when they met as kids to when they fell in love as adults. Even after their separation, Storm and T'challa worked on their relationship and didn't let it die down immediately. I guess the only lesson men can take from T'challa is to always support their lady love, no matter how the relationship is going! © Marvel Comic (5) Vision & Wanda-Scarlet Witch (Civil War) I think they had a very twisted dynamic in all of MCU, which was worth a mention here. It's actually a romance between two unlikely characters. While in the movie it may seem like a fairytale, the comics depict a different picture altogether! In the comic series, he used to be a synthezoid automaton, created by one of Avenger's greatest enemies and she was a spell caster, who was always on the wrong side of the law. © Marvel Comic When Vision and Scarlet both joined the Avengers as outsiders, they both had a troubled past. When they got together, it actually made their equation quiet unexpected and adorable, to say the least. ' He was a robot who wanted to feel everything human and she was a mutant looking for acceptance. It actually fit perfectly and that's the dynamic we see in 'Civil War' and later in 'Infinity War' as well. I can only sum up this equation by qualifying it as 'twisted love'. © Walt Disney productions MCU has a string of other 'sweet romances' that I haven't listed. For example Hulk and Black Widow, where their relationship was more philosophical and seemed a little forced in an already stuffed 'Age of Ultron'. It just felt like an unnecessary distraction. But other than that we have Luke Cage and Jessica James, T'Challa and Nakia, Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter, to name a few, all filling in major gaps in the romance department of the MCU! So, all in all, the MCU is not just Stan Lee's heartless power force, but a subtle meltdown of action, love, romance, responsibilities, eccentricities and of course power. I suggest you read some comic book romances if you really want to understand the dynamic the romantics shared in the invincible MCU.
  4. The Indian cricket team has been busy scaling new heights in international cricket lately. Team India blanked West Indies 2-0 in the Test series, 3-1 in the ODIs and, more recently, 3-0 in the T20Is. While their clinical performances throughout the tour elated the fans, the absence of iconic cricketer MS Dhoni left many disheartened. The Indian selectors turned a few heads after dropping Dhoni from the recently-concluded three-match T20I series against West Indies. And, then, the absence of the Jharkhand cricketer from the Indian squad for the T20I series against Australia, too, left the home fans bemused. While his teammates have been busy cutting a sorry figure for the Windies, Dhoni seems to be making the most of his time away from the playing field. MS Dhoni on set in Mumbai! #shootday #mahi #dhoni #msd pic.twitter.com/gURQzZHZbK — Rhiti Sports (@RhitiSports) November 13, 2018 The 37-year-old was recently seen showcasing his kabaddi skills in a promo that he shot for the ongoing Pro Kabaddi League (PKL). Rhiti Sports, which manages Dhoni's endorsements, took to Twitter and shared the photos of the promo where Dhoni was seen enjoying his time in a sport other than cricket. Flexing his toned muscles on the Kabaddi mat, Dhoni was seen pulling off iconic moves that are associated with the sport, including the one that is generally performed by Shikhar Dhawan whenever he takes a catch on the cricket field. Apart from Dhoni, his celebrity stylist Sapna Bhavnani was also seen in the pictures. While Dhoni seems to be having a gala time off the field, the Indian cricket team now gears up for a sterner test as they travel to Australia for four Tests, three T20Is and as many ODIs. Eager to prove their mettle Down Under, Virat Kohli-led brigade will be eager to put their best foot forward when they begin the tour with the T20I series, slated to begin from 21st November.
  5. It took them six years of dodging public scrutiny before they could finally let their fans celebrate in peace with their wedding announcement. Ask any romantic around you how they feel about “DeepVeer”, and we're sure 9 out of 10 would declare the pair as the ruling Bollywood couple at the moment. Women are infatuated with Ranveer's overtly loving gestures, while most men find a blushing Deepika as a welcome sight to behold. The couple found a very subtle way of expressing their love publicly (remember those sweet comments on Deepika's Instagram posts?), while their not-so-subtle ways with PDA also never ceased to grab eyeballs. © BCCL But whether you love or hate how they choose to show the affection for each other, there can be no denying that their love story kind of makes us believe that there might indeed be “the one” for us too. Not many know how Deepika and Ranveer's love story unravelled, but if you're reading this that means you're surely interested. So here's all there's to know. The Pehli Mulakaat Ranveer and Deepika opened up about their first impression of each other at the recently concluded HT Leadership Summit, wherein Deepika shared that initially, she thought Ranveer just “wasn't her type”. Ranveer on the other hand, was smitten by her beauty after a starstruck Ranveer spotted her at a restaurant. Pyaar Ki Pehli Dastak It is believed that Deepika and Ranveer started dating on the sets of their first movie together, 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela'. On the film's fourth anniversary Ranveer used the hashtag “leela jaisi koi nahi” in the caption, for the photo he posted. View this post on Instagram "Don't we look great together?" ;) #leelajaisikoinahi #4YearsOfRanveerSingh A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Dec 10, 2014 at 2:57am PST Ranveer Ko “Loveria” Hua 2013 brought with itself some meaty muscle to add to their love story. The same year when Ranveer was admitted to a hospital with a case of dengue, he said it was a case of “loveria” instead. Ranveer went all out gushing over his lady love in an interview with TOI and said, “I have felt like this in the past also, but it's a strong feeling this time. When you feel so strongly then you can say I guess I am in love. I don't know what is love, but what I am feeling is quite strong and cannot explain it. [I like] everything [about this girl]. Her kindness and her being genuine and caring”. Deepika, on the other hand, had to say this about Ranveer's “loveria” comment, “no, it's amazing, the way he is. He is so unique. And I think what I admire about him is that he is so unapologetic about the way he is,” she told HT. Pyaar Ki Mulakaatein 2013 also saw Ranveer subtly hinting at “more”, when it came to Deepika and him. He was reportedly visiting Deepika on film sets. From 'Happy New Year', 'Chennai Express' to 'Piku' and even 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage', Ranveer literally went “saat samundar paar” for his lady.

Caruso (@Deejaycar) February 13, 2016 Deepika was also spotted in Barcelona when Ranveer was shooting there for 'Dil Dhadakne Do'. The 'IIFA' Declaration Of Love In 2015, apart from celebrating the new year in the Maldives together, and attending more industry parties together, Ranveer went all out with his declaration of love on a public platform like IIFA awards. He went down on his knees on the stage and presented a red, heart-shaped balloon to Deepika!

The duo was seen leaving the party together, hand in hand. Thereafter, the couple went all out and never bothered about keeping their mutual admiration or affection in check while in public. The Official Confirmation Soon enough, rumours about their wedding started doing the rounds at the beginning of this year. After months of speculations, the official announcement of their wedding was made on October 21st. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Oct 21, 2018 at 3:29am PDT Both Ranveer and Deepika made the announcement on their personal Instagram accounts, declaring to the world that they were ready to take their relationship to the next level. A lot of hearts broke in the process, but the couple was clearly ecstatic!
  6. For all parents, their baby girls are no less important, valuable and beloved than the Princess of Sussex! So it goes without saying that, when these little girls mature into independent women, their folks start wondering if any man could ever match their standards of approval. And by standards, we mean a susheel and samajhdaar boy with Nick Bateman's dreamy-looks and Jerry Seinfeld's sense of humour and wealth, not to mention a personality that would rival even Sidharth Malhotra's. Well boys, sorry to put you in a state of self-analysis, but you do understand that you really don't stand a chance if you aren't able to win over your in-laws. Well, fret not, as it's time to brush your wit, pull up your socks and start acting smart by impressing your in-laws and win them over. And to help you achieve just that, here is a five-step guide you should follow to a tee. Step 1: Appearances Matter, So Dress To Impress © Official Instagram/ David Beckham Just how you shouldn't - scratch that - mustn't attend a wedding function sporting a pair of white sneakers (unless it's Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's wedding reception), you can NEVER meet your girlfriend's parents looking any less dapper than David Beckham in a suit. So don't shy away from donning the best outfit in your wardrobe. And just in case you don't own a fancy suit or simply cannot afford one, you could always beg, borrow or steal (okay maybe not the last one!) to impress your prospective in-laws. Step 2: Take Them Out For Some Fine-Dining © Official Instagram/ Kunal Khemu Browse through Dineout or Zomato and choose from the finest places in your city to relish a flavourful meal, and even more flavourful conversations, with your in-laws-to-be. A rooftop restaurant with prime-setting and live classical musicians, or a heritage restaurant in the bustling-old streets of the city, should ideally do the job! Oh, and it goes without saying that you need to pick up the tab! Step 3: Take Them Back To Malgudi Days © Unsplash Conversations, especially ones highlighting a personal connection, have traditionally worked as effective ice-breakers. You can actually take this one step further by kick-starting a conversation about Mohammad Rafi's melodious tunes, or about those times when Amitabh Bachchan ruled the silver screen. Not only would doing so take her parents on a trip down memory lane, but it will also make you their favourite person to share all of their memories with. Step 4: Having A Sense Of Humour Goes A Long Way © Official Instagram/ Nick Jonas As already mentioned above, conversations are great ice-breakers. But apart from developing personal connections during those conversations, one more highly effective way of winning over your to-be in-laws, or anyone for that matter, is to showcase your sense of humour. So fill the aura of nervousness and hesitancy with a little laughter, for a good sense of humour goes a long way in helping you leave a lasting (and positive!) impression. Step 5: Finally, Get Them A Nice Gift © Unsplash Finally, one tried and tested way of getting in anyone's good graces is to get them a gift. So why not have something nice delivered at their doorstep? Especially if you want to make sure that your in-laws-to-be don't think of their prospective son-in-law as a cheapskate. So for her father, you can always pick a classic and branded wrist watch, whereas, for her mother, you could get her the iDiva beauty box, which you can get by clicking here, that is the perfect amalgamation of premium beauty essentials for women.
  7. You might be the one promising them protection on Rakshabandhan, but your sisters are actually the saviours. From shelling out a little extra for your fuel expenses to backing you up at all times, they might not be your best friend, but they definitely are your backbone. And as much as you want to deny it, growing up in our generation means not having enough time to spend with family, which means not having enough time to thank them, too. So if you think you have missed out on opportunities to tell your saviour that life without her would be so dud and boring, then here is your chance to make up, with these four gestures. 1. Nothing Beats A Thoughtful Gift © Unsplash Let's be honest, and admit to liking gifts, because, apart from being things that you like, they are tokens of love, and proof of how well someone knows you. And before you begin to count all those festivals celebrating the brother-sister bond, while sisters are bombarded with gifts they demand with an intimidating authority, we want to remind you of the difference between customs from emotions. Those Rakshabandhan and Bhai Dooj gifts, no matter how well-thought they are, are still a part of the ages-old customs; and these customs overshadow your gifting intent. So, if you think you have done your part by getting her a nice Rakshabandhan-gift, you should know that you haven't. Get her what she wants, without letting an occasion justify it - because there can never be enough pampering for the girl who stuck by you even when you pulled her ponytail and tattled on her. And if you are at a loss when it comes to picking gifts, we have found the ONE gift every woman would love to own - the IDiva Beauty Box. Packed with 11 mind-blowing, premium beauty essentials, this box makes for a perfect gift, and caters to women from all age groups. So now that we have cracked the gifting code for you, it's time you buy this amazing beauty box: https://www.idiva.com/beauty-box?utm_source=Idiva&utm_medium=Article&utm_campaign=Appreciating_Sisters 2. Bond Over A Few Drinks © Unsplash Even the shiest and most introverted people on the planet talk, if you serve them the right liquor in the right quantity. If you two share a relationship where the conversations only happen at the dinner table, and revolve mostly around grocery-shopping duties, we advise you to go out with her, and let your hair loose! Spending a fun night together will actually tell you how different the two of you are, but if it's a partner-in-crime bonding you share, then we can promise you a memorable already. From telling you about her deepest, dirtiest secrets to agreeing to play a wingwoman, you will be surprised to know how amazingly fun and cool she is. And who knows, maybe the two of you can also cover up for each other when you go on those date nights next! 3. Go On A Vacation Yes, the two of you live in the same house, or used to, but how often do you get to sit with each other, and spend some quality time? Hardly ever! Plan a weekend getaway, and escape to the hills or simply hit the beach - but whatever you choose to do, make sure you are both at your peaceful best. Taking some time off will not only help her relax, but it will also give her a sense of appreciation for this effort you make. It is not very common for a brother-sister duo to travel together, unless it is the entire family vacationing, but we bet that this is going to be one of the most calm and rejuvenating holidays you will ever have, and one of the best gestures you could make for her. 4. Listen To Her As basic as it may sound, more often than not, we tend to overlook the importance of simply hearing our loved ones out. Just brew two cups of coffee, sit with her in the balcony, and watch her open up gradually. There is no shortcut to this, let her take all the time she needs, to suddenly have a brother-turned-friend wanting to know about her life - just be there with all your heart, and listen. If she tells you about the complexities of her life, feel proud, because you know you have reassured her with all the support she was looking for; she might not even need guidance, just someone to unravel in front of, so just be that. There really can be no better way of telling her that you care.
  8. Gali Janardhan Reddy (GJR) a.k.a. 'Bellary King' has made headlines all over again. The mining baron who is based out of Karnataka and an erstwhile politician, seems to be controversy's favourite child, and this time too he has managed to live up to this title. The man's net worth is hundreds of crores and the last time he was trending all over social media was in 2016, when it was reported that GJR had spent a whopping amount of Rupees 500 crores on his daughter Brahmini's wedding. With star celebrity performers, international dancers and just the wedding attire worth 70 crores, GJR caught a lot of people's attention that year. © Twitter Now with the mining czar's arrest by the Central Crime Branch police on Sunday, in connection to a 600 crore Ambidant Marketing Ponzi scam, he has come under the spotlight yet again. While the details related to the scam are not what we are interested in right now, we sure can tell you about how GJR, who was once a police constable's son, went on to become India's richest mining mogul. The Beginning When GJR started out in 1989, he set up a finance company at the age of 21 and named it Ennoble India Savings & Investment Company Limited. It had 125 branches and had a turnover of 350 crores. However, it collapsed with unpaid debts of Rs 200 crore. In 2001, he took over the mining company OMPC. With significant rise in iron-ore demands in 2003, GJR's business skyrocketed and there was no looking back. © BCCL The 'Gold' Rush When the CBI raided the three-storey Reddy mansion in 2011, it was reported that the mansion featured an office, an indoor swimming pool facing a 70 mm screen, a massage parlour, a bar, and even a bomb shelter. Additionally, it came with a three-tier security cover and CCTV surveillance up to half a km on all sides. Gold plated bowls, plates, spoons, cups, pots and much more worth, 20.87 lacs were also recovered. Bags with cash worth 3 crores were also found on the premises. But wait till you hear about the material gold that was found at his place in the form of jewellery. The house came close to being a gold mine with the recovery of 45 necklaces, 610 gold bangles (35 of which were diamond encrusted), 300 pairs of earrings (75 with diamonds), 1,200 gold rings (100 with diamonds), several bracelets, antique and platinum jewellery, from GJR's home. © AP The 'King Of Thrones' Besides all the gold rush we just mentioned, it was also reported that a 15 kg, golden throne with his initials monogrammed in diamonds was also found in his home. Worth over Rs 2.2 crore, it was believed that Reddy got himself 'crowned' on the throne, in a secret ceremony in Hampi. Need For Speed - Royal Edition GJR's fleet of cars included a Rolls Royce, Range Rover, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, an Audi, BMW and over a dozen Scorpios and Boleros, as well as a custom-made bus. He also owned a Bell helicopter named Rukmini. Gold-Laden Outfits It is also said that each of Reddy's shirts was worth at least a lakh, since they were interwoven with gold threads. A jewel encrusted belt that he wore was priced at 13 lakhs and carried a gold-plated cell phone. © Wikipedia Golden Lord, Literally GJR's mansion housed a one foot long idol of Lord Venkateshwara made out of solid gold besides six others, and the combined worth of them all was equal to 2.3 crores. What's more, their in-house temple also had a gold bell that weighs 1 kg! It's also a known fact that Reddy donated a throne similar to his personal one to Tirupathi temple which was worth a whopping 43 crores. Tryst With Politics Reddy is a known face in Karnataka politics and even worked as Bellary's BJP President. Later on, he was elected as a Member of Legislative Council in 2006 and also became a Cabinet Minister for Tourism and Infrastructure in B. S. Yeddyurappa Cabinet. "We went into his shackles even before the BJP government was formed in Karnataka. He had clout with our national leadership, with Sushma and Nitin Gadkari openly endorsing him. Our then Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa was helpless in his hands," a senior Karnataka minister was quoted by India Today. © AP Imprisonment The mogul has been in and out of prison over the years. In 2011 he was arrested by CBI for his involvement in illegal mining of iron ore in Bellary. The arrest came after Lokayukta Santosh Hegde's report. After scrutiny and investigations, Reddy and his brother-in-law, B.V. Srinivas Reddy were taken into judicial custody and sent to Chanchalguda Jail. GJR was granted bail by the Supreme Court in January 2015, but the man was arrested again by the Central Crime Branch police in relation to a 600 crore Ambidant Marketing Ponzi scam. Life seems to have come full circle for the mining mogul, but his personal assets continue to knock the breath out of us.
  9. The world of football has seen many superstars over the ages, but the ongoing reign of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is arguably something that's going to last in our memories for a really long time. The two footballing greats have made the sport their own playing arena and the fact that they have won a record five Ballon d'Ors, goes on to show how dominant they have been in the last decade. The duel for football's top individual award began in 2008 when Ronaldo pipped Messi to bag his first Ballon d'Or. But, the Argentine was not to be underestimated as he went on to bag the coveted award for four successive years. While many had ruled Ronaldo out of ever coming close to his nemesis, the Portuguese didn't lose hope and went on to clinch the Ballon d'Or in 2013 and 2014. The next year saw Messi staging a comeback, taking his tally to a record five Ballon d'Or wins in 2015. But, Ronaldo shut all the naysayers after bagging the prestigious award in 2016 and 2017 to equal Messi's record of most Ballon d'Or triumphs. With both the Phenoms tied at five wins apiece, this year's Ballon d'Or is being anxiously awaited by football pundits and fans to see who'll come out on top and take the lead in most Ballon d'Or wins. © Reuters However, contrary to popular perception, it has emerged that we might have to wait a little longer to see the showdown between Ronaldo and Messi. If the recent reports are to be believed, neither Ronaldo, nor Messi will win the Ballon d'Or this year. In fact, there will be a new star who'll bring an end to the Ronaldo-Messi era that has dominated the Ballon d'Or since Kaka won it in 2007. As per Eric Macruth, a French journalist who works for French radio station RFI, it's Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric who will clinch the 2018 Ballon d'Or. “Exclusive #BallondOr: After counting half the votes, the head trio is as follows: 1) Modric 2) @raphaelvarane 3 @KMbappe. @xbarretfoot @RFIRadioFoot Info @RFIsports,” he tweeted. Earlier this year, Modric had also bagged the European Player of the Year and FIFA's Best Player awards, beating both Ronaldo and Messi. The Croat helped Real Madrid win the UEFA Champions League back in May for the third year on the trot. And then, the veteran played a pivotal role in guiding Croatia to the FIFA World Cup final in Russia. © Reuters Raphael Varane claiming the second spot on the list would not surprise many, owing to his exploits on the football pitch this year. Just like his club mate Modric, the French international won this year's UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid. And then, the star defender celebrated one of the biggest moments of his career as part of the French side that recently lifted the FIFA World Cup. The third name on the list, Kylian Mbappe, was touted to pip the likes of Ronaldo and Messi to claim the Ballon d'Or this year. The 19-year-old propelled Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to another Ligue 1 title earlier this year, starring alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani in attack. He also got his name on the scoresheet in the final as France won the FIFA World Cup for the first time since 1998. While we aren't sure whether the recent reports or the tweet that allegedly leaked the top 3 can be trusted, but the news will surely not go down for Ronaldo who was really keen on bagging the award this year. “I already know, in my heart, that I am one of the best players in history. Of course, I want to win this sixth Ballon d'Or!”, Raonaldo had said earlier this year.
  10. The big day is almost here, finally. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are about to tie the knot in a day. After endless guesswork and conjectures, we finally have some direction on what Baba might be wearing on his big day. Just like last years mega wedding - the behemoth Virushka phenomenon - this year's biggest wedding may also just have Sabyasachi's name written all over it. Not convinced? Take a look here. View this post on Instagram A post shared by yogen shah (@yogenshah_s) on Nov 9, 2018 at 1:56pm PST When it comes to traditional Indian wear, after all, what is the first name that comes to your mind, anyway? Let's just say Ranveer wearing Sabyasachi makes perfect sense, and we are beyond excited. While we still don't know what exactly Baba will be wearing, we definitely can get close in terms of guesswork. Here, we have compiled a list of 10 Sabyasachi groom outfits, that may just be the inspiration behind Ranveer's wedding outfit. 1. Our first pick is this pink number with an elaborate flare. Ranveer loves pink, and he will look stunning in this beige and pink ensemble. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 2. All of us are familiar with Ranveer's fascination with floral prints and patterns. An outfit like this one here does complete justice to that. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 3. Ranveer likes pop colours, and a sophisticated quilted green number like this one here will be perfect. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 4. Ranveer likes experimenting and surprising his fans. What is he goes ahead with a traditional, suave black sherwani with a statement ivory shawl? © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 5. 'Exuberant' should be the primary adjective to describe Ranveer's wedding outfit, and this embroidered sherwani along with a safa, adorned with diamonds, emeralds, and pearls fit the bill perfectly. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 6. Ranveer is fond of maximalism, and what better to opt for than an opulent sherwani, embroidered top to bottom with gorgeous threadwork? © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 7. We think Ranveer will look divine in this Royal Prussian Blue sherwani with a matching shawl. Striking, yet classy. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 8. This rare aesthetic comprising of shades of green and yellow makes for a sherwani that is a definitive head-turner. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 9. Ranveer has a history of wearing white to weddings, and he might just pull a stunner like this one for his own. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial 10. We associate this super rich shade of rose with a typical Sabyasachi lehenga (which the designer fondly has named 'Gulaab'), and Ranveer might just turn out to be the signature Sabyasachi groom - one who will be referred to as the benchmark when it comes to wedding attires for generations to come. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial All we can say is that we can't wait.
  11. After shattering numerous records with Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is now on a quest to conquer Italy with his new club Juventus. The Portuguese might have taken some time to get going but he seems to be enjoying a strong start to life under Massimiliano Allegri, netting nine goals in 15 games. The Juventus forward showcased his striking abilities after smashing a breath-taking volley past goalkeeper David de Gea during their 2-1 loss against Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League. Then, during their Serie clash against AC Milan, Ronaldo's advice to his teammate Wojciech Szczesny helped the Juventus shot-stopper to save Gonzalo Higuain's penalty, before the Portuguese doubled the lead for his side in the 81st minute, securing a 2-0 win for his team. It's needless to say that Ronaldo had a great game and there was no surprise to see Milan youngster Raoul Bellanova asking the Juventus forward for a picture. Ronaldo and Bellanova eventually clicked a photo together, right outside the Juventus changing room at the San Siro. But, whosoever was clicking the picture, didn't take into account the individuals in the background. When you see it pic.twitter.com/K3KyhlJz09 — Troll Football (@TrollFootball) November 12, 2018 In what has now turned into one of the most hilarious football jokes on social media, a shirtless Ronaldo and young Bellanova were snapped together with Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini walking naked behind the two footballers. While Chiellini seemed unaware of the photo, his unintentional expose surely left the football fans in splits and Ronaldo probably red-faced. Chiellini looks like the evolution man who is always walking. pic.twitter.com/kaGemw99H3 — Riddhiman Medhi (@riddhis_life) November 12, 2018 Chiellini's "little boy" is probably better at lasting the full 90 mins of the game than Jones and Smalling combined for Man Utd. — Aumogh Sengupta (@aumogh24) November 12, 2018 pic.twitter.com/MtGQoI2RAY — Isaac™ ðºð¬ ð¯ (@tumisaac) November 12, 2018 pic.twitter.com/WlKU4syeUl — Gabriel Ogundele (@kneelyee) November 12, 2018 It's so small I can't even see it — Bay Zone (@MrAwisha) November 12, 2018 pic.twitter.com/0FKFrac9K4 — AZ (@awz94) November 12, 2018 pic.twitter.com/vyi0wgW1VW — dony (@dyfjrr) November 12, 2018 Literally ð pic.twitter.com/th3GrPOP6l — ` (@useful23) November 12, 2018 That guy is still defending his privacy..what a defender — Salah (@anderlukeshaw) November 12, 2018
  12. Bodybuilding as a profession is rife with steroid use. Bodybuilders have been using steroids since forever to get bigger, muscular and freakier. It has very well reached to a point that most top-level bodybuilders don't even look aesthetically pleasing anymore, instead, are complete freak shows. Along with looking big and nasty, the steroid (ab)use comes with tons of side effects. A lot of people, especially gullible teenagers with Instagram #fitspiration body goals, think that they will do these steroids once and leave it. They reckon they will do it once, get the gains, and then maintain it. Sadly, they assume it is a smart decision and things work that way. Guess what?! It DOES NOT work that way. Here are a few before and after pictures of top professional bodybuilders. The before pictures are from their competitive years. The after pictures are of their retired physiques. These should prove that the saying 'needles once, gains forever' is nothing but an invitation for a lifetime of trouble. 1. Paul Dillet © YouTube He was nicknamed 'Freak-einstein.' Got a clue why? In his 21-year professional career, his most notable wins were two Grand Prix and placing first in the Night of the Champions. 2. Mustafa Mohammad © YouTube In his 17 year spell as a competitor, he won 2 NABBA championships at the beginning of his career. 3. Flex Wheeler © YouTube Described as one of the best bodybuilders, Flex has a rich history of wins and even did a comeback in 2017. 4. Tom Prince © YouTube After having a long professional career, Tom retired from competing following a kidney failure while preparing for the 2003 Night of the Champions. Shortly after, he called it quits. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  13. There's some good news for Tinder users in India as the dating app is going all the way for gender inclusivity. Earlier one could only choose the options for 'man' or 'woman' but as per the latest press release , Tinder is now adding more options to its list for people who identify as transgender or even gender-neutral. © Tech crunch The initiative is meant to celebrate all the genders and allow everyone to have a smooth dating life. India's oldest LGBTQ organization, 'Humsafar Trust', was on the panel committee which actively recommended this change. The chairperson was quoted explaining the whole idea behind this initiative: “Tinder's new initiative celebrates the diversity and pluralism and truly represents the idea of India. For numerous Indians who identify as trans and non-binary, this will be their chance to be their true selves online and in person. It gives us great pleasure to be associated with Tinder on this bold move.” This will enable and ensure that everyone gets to authenticate themselves and have a healthy dating life. These options have been a part of Tinder in the US since 2016 and even though we might be late to the party, we are finally there.
  14. Touted as one of the favourites in the tournament, Indian women's cricket team fired warning shots early in the ongoing ICC World T20 on the back of some sublime performances in the West Indies. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side stunned New Zealand in their tournament opener before decimating arch-rivals Pakistan in the second match. While there have been a lot of positives for the Indian eves, pragmatic skipper Harmanpreet has arguably been the one that stands out amongst the rest. The right-hander became the first Indian woman to hit a T20I hundred when she smashed a 51-ball 103 against the Kiwis in the opening game at the Providence stadium in Guyana. © Reuters Going into the second game against Pakistan, Harmanpreet's leadership skills were also on full display as her side skittled the opposition with an emphatic seven-wicket triumph. Though a low total and Mithali Raj's 56-run knock didn't give Harmanpreet an opportunity to showcase her big-hitting abilities, but still the Indian T20I captain found a way to grab the headlines. Ahead of the Indo-Pak encounter, both the teams stood in unison for the customary national anthems on the field. The cricketers were also accompanied by young mascots who stood right in front of them before the national anthems from the two countries were played. pic.twitter.com/06Q3KxvfMU — Mushfiqur Fan (@NaaginDance) November 11, 2018 During India's national anthem, the mascot accompanying Harmanpreet fell ill. Taking notice of the young girl's health issues, Harmanpreet wasted no time in carrying her in her arms and handed her over to the management before taking the field. Harmanpreet didn't just showed her concern for the youngster, but also had the respect for the national anthem as she waited for it to get over before doing the needful. The Indian skipper's touching gesture was caught on tape and later shared on Twitter. Since then, every cricket fan across the globe has showered praise on Harmanpreet for showing her concern for the young girl. @ImHarmanpreet is and will always be a legend. As for why some of us see this as a no-biggie, everyday act of kindness & the west fawn over such displays of genuine care & look at it as a rare event, this thread is all you need. https://t.co/1kW5sO23IH — YonSolitaryHighland (@YonSolitary) November 12, 2018 Salute sister — Krio Fezzil (repeat mode villain) ðð (@mkkrioanku18) November 12, 2018 You showed the world it's not special about wining the game it's all about the wining the hearts.

But, their biggest test awaits on 17th November when Harmanpreet's side will take on mighty Australians in their Group B clash at the Providence stadium in Guyana.
  15. The drama in the 'Bigg Boss' house keeps dwindling in terms of low and high. Currently Sreesanth and Karanvir Bohra are locking horns over difference of opinions. The arguments between them have got heated up ever since Karanvir became the captain of the house and Sree has been flouting rules openly. .@KVBohra ne sunaayi @sreesanth36 aur @imrohitsuchanti ko gande bartan saaf karne ki saza kyunki unhone tode the ghar ke rules! Watch #BiggBoss12 tonight at 9 PM for all the drama. #BB12 pic.twitter.com/QuUce6YrQZ — Bigg Boss (@BiggBoss) November 12, 2018 Salman Khan is known to infuse humour and jokes in his conversations with the contestants every weekend. This weekend, during a task, he happened to make a joke about the 'fizz' missing from Karanvir's life and that has not gone down well with his wife, Teejay Sidhu. She has penned an open letter for the makers and Salman Khan and accused them of bullying her husband. View this post on Instagram It's okay to joke around and tease someone, but there comes a point when a person may be feeling genuinely upset. He may smile, but it doesn't mean he's happy, it just means he is trying not to show his pain. @karanvirbohra #BiggBoss12 A post shared by Teejay Sidhu (@bombaysunshine) on Nov 12, 2018 at 10:41am PST Her concern is being backed by his fans and the audience as well. Just #KaranvirBohra is humble and taking things sportingly doesn't give you the right @BiggBoss and #SalmanKhan to harass him torcher him amd bash him every weekend. You guys are doing this so that you can easily evict him. Shame on you losers.#StopTargetingKaranvir — KVBarmyð¥ (@KVBarmy) November 11, 2018 The way #KaranvirBohra was hysterically laughed upon in today's episode at Sultani Akhada was horrible to witness - I felt so uncomfortable watch that.
