  1. You can trust Akshay Kumar to take up interesting projects and add versatility to his already super versatile career path. The man knows exactly what kind of movies he needs to pick, which serve a bigger purpose than merely entertaining the audience. Last seen as a Sikh warrior in 'Kesari', Khiladi Kumar is all set for his next movie 'Laxmmi Bomb' and his first look has got everyone screaming.

The movie is a remake of Southern hit film 'Kanchana' which was the second part of a two-part movie franchise directed by Raghava Lawrence. The movie follows the story of a man who gets possessed by the ghost of a transgender woman, who is looking for vendetta against the people who ruined her life. This looks like a very interesting role for Akshay and social media is abuzz with raving reviews of his first look.

'Laxmmi Bomb' is all set to release next June in 2020.
  2. The Hindi film industry has evolved leaps and bounds in the last couple of years, with some really good content making its way to the big screen. Of course, a few senseless entertainment ('SOTY 2'...ahem) flicks also manage to slip through, but overall, Bollywood has managed to keep movie-goers engaged with quality films such as 'Raazi', 'Padman', 'Hichki', 'Parmanu', '102 Not Out', 'Andhadhun', 'Manto', 'Badhai Ho', 'Uri', 'Gully Boy' and the likes striking a chord with the audience. © Instagram The streak of quality content from Bollywood promises to continue with the release of some recent first looks, which have left the audience intrigued as well as excited for what's to come. Recently, Amitabh Bachchan shared the first look of his upcoming film 'Chehre' and the picture has got the grapevine working overtime, owing to the similarities between Big B's look in 'Chehre' to iconic 'Harry Potter' series character Dumbledore. © Twitter Well, the look has also made his fans anxious about what 'Chehre' is all about, since we have never seen Amitabh Bachchan in such a look. As per the latest reports, this much-awaited film starring Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi is being produced by Anand Pandit and directed by Rumi Jaffrey. The shooting for the film has already begun in Mumbai. Reportedly, 'Chehre' also stars Kriti Kharbanda, Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Dritman Chakroborthy, Raghubir Yadav and Annu Kapoor. It is scheduled to release on 21st February 2020. © Twitter Apart from Bachchan Sr's look in 'Chehre', the first looks of these 5 upcoming Bollywood films also made us go 'oh teri!'. Check them out here: 1. Vicky Kaushal in 'Sardar Udham Singh' © Twitter We recently got to behold the first look of Shoojit Sircar's upcoming directorial project 'Sardar Udham Singh' starring Vicky Kaushal. The pictures showed Vicky Kaushal shooting in Russia as the titular character, who was an Indian freedom fighter. 2. Deepika Padukone in 'Chhapaak' © Instagram Deepika's first look from 'Chhapaak', which is being directed by Meghna Gulzar, grabbed quite a few eyeballs when it was first released. Based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, people commended Deepika's look because it looked so convincing. 3. Kartik Aaryan in 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' © Instagram Kartik's look from his upcoming film 'Pati, Patni Aur Woh' which is a remake of the 1978 movie by the same name, left fans gawking at their screens. Also, starring Ananya Pandey and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead, Kartik as Chintu Tyagi in the film looked nothing like the dapper star and excited the audience for whatever is in store. 4. Ayushmann Khurrana in 'Dream Girl' © Twitter Recently, when the filming began for Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha starrer 'Dream Girl', Ayushmann took to his social media account and shared his first look and said, “As whacky as it can get! Here's the first glimpse of my look in and as #DreamGirl. Thoughts?” Of course, his fans had lots of thoughts to spare, because obviously! 5. Bhumi Pednekar & Tapsee Pannu in 'Saand Ki Aankh' © Twitter Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar's upcoming movie garnered a lot of buzz when they transformed into famous “Shooter Dadis” for Anurag Kashyap's 'Saand Ki Aankh.' Based on the lives of sharpshooters Chandro Tomar and Prakshi Tomar, who learnt shooting at the age of 60, the audience is looking forward to this one hitting the screens.
  3. The world's biggest boy band, BTS scripted history at the Billboard Music Awards 2019 last night, by becoming the first ever K-Pop group to win the Top Group award. 190502 ð BTS just wins Top Duo/Group at 2019 Billboard Music Awards!! ð­ð­ GUUUUUYYS @BTS_twt BIG CONGRATULATIONS!! #TopSocialArtistBTS #BTSistheTopGrouppic.twitter.com/NnUPW1oAj5 — BTS National (@BTS_National) May 2, 2019 They also won the Top Social Artist award for the third year in a row, thanks to their unbelievably powerful and devoted fan base called the ARMY. It goes without saying that the fans completely lost it, not only in South Korea but all over the world, as this was a very important moment for them. A Korean group, making Korean music, competing and winning against noted international artists, is nothing short of incredible, and BTS' fans are on cloud nine and beaming with pride. “I'd say after today's BBMAs win 'Team work makes the Dream work', is the right phrase suitable for BTS because they have come a long way by their sheer hard work and talent,” said Twinkle Choudhary, one of the administrators of BTSindiaofficial. BTS, who were nominated for the first time ever in this category, won the Top Group award by beating out Dan + Shay, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5 and Panic! At The Disco. © Getty Images The 7 members consisting of RM (leader), Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook walked up to the stage to collect the award amid the deafening cheers from their fans present there. “Thank you, ARMY. Still can't believe we're here on this stage with so many great artists, oh my God. ARMY, this is only possible because of the little things we shared together. The BTS and ARMY power, right? And we're still the same boys from six years ago. We still have the same dreams. We still have the same feelings; we still have the same thoughts. So let's keep dreaming the best dreams together. Thank you. I love you all," RM said in his acceptance speech. BTS also performed their latest single 'Boy With Luv' featuring Halsey at the BBMAs and it was incredible to see the sight of an American pop singer singing and dancing along with a K-Pop band on the prestigious stage. BTS & Halsey took the #BBMAs stage for a performance of "Boy With Luv" #BillboardNews pic.twitter.com/zvPpvvWCyv — billboard (@billboard) May 2, 2019 “I think a lot of people are really curious about the collaboration because obviously, the boys are from Korea and I'm from the States, but I think that we really show that despite what seems like a language barrier at first is really just kind of like unimportant when it comes down to a bunch of young people who really love music and who just love hanging out, and it really shows through," Halsey said at before the awards on the red carpet. © Getty Images BTS, looking dapper in Alexander McQueen, created a stir the second they landed at the awards and walked the red carpet, as besides fans, many celebrities began clamouring to take a selfie or just catch a glimpse of the boys. © Getty Images Now THAT's a photo.#UmusicBBMAs #Drake #BTS pic.twitter.com/KKaX7FEl7g — Universal Music CA (@umusic) May 2, 2019 Can they like...

  4. Falling in love with the right person and then getting married to the love of your life is a blessing not everyone is graced with in their lives. Sonam K Ahuja and Anand Ahuja's wedding last year was surely a grand affair. From the starry guest list to the very first picture of the newlyweds, everything was just perfect. The bigwigs of Bollywood didn't only make their presence felt at one of the biggest weddings of 2018 but actively participated in all the functions. From Salman Khan to Shah Rukh Khan, everyone celebrated the big day with the Kapoors. They walked the aisle on May 8, 2018, and this year, the lovebirds will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary. View this post on Instagram that smile is everything! ð #everydayphenomenal A post shared by anand s ahuja (@anandahuja) on Jun 9, 2018 at 2:28pm PDT If one remembers correctly, Sonam and Anand had to cancel their honeymoon plans because the actor had prior commitments. What if we tell you that, this time is no different? MensXP got in touch with Anand Ahuja to know more about their first wedding anniversary plans and guess what? Sonam is busy again with her erratic and hectic schedules. When we asked Anand what has he planned for his wife, he cracked up and said, "It's funny. Sonam is always messing on my plans. Last year, she had canned right after the wedding. We didn't do a honeymoon. We did a really short one in Japan. This year, we were again planning to go to Japan but then her 'Zoya Factor' schedule is there and it has changed a bit. We are not going in June but we will go after her birthday. We are so fortunate that with our schedules, we travel so much and get to spend time. We will be in London for the anniversary. London is a little break for her. We will surely do a Japan trip at the end of the year." We wonder what Sonam has to say to this? View this post on Instagram ...Time to eat in @discoverLA! ð Getting down w a cool, vegetarian -friendly restaurants in town: @salazarfrogtown! ð#ComeFeeltheLove #everydayphenomenal A post shared by anand s ahuja (@anandahuja) on Jan 20, 2019 at 12:24am PST We all know Sonam is an uber fashionista and doesn't go wrong with her fashion choices. Both Anand and Sonam have been setting the bar high with their individual fashion sense. From their airport looks to their red carpet style, everything is just to the point and perfect according to the occasion. On Twitter and Instagram, people tag them as one of the most glam couples and we do agree with it. When we asked Anand about the tag they are given, he told us, "It's more Sonam. Whenever you are with your partner, you just gain more confidence. We have just amazing stylists. Everyone in her family be it Anil Kapoor or her mom, they all are style icons." View this post on Instagram âð¼ð®ð¹ A post shared by anand s ahuja (@anandahuja) on Sep 24, 2018 at 10:58am PDT Before we parted ways, we gave him a suggestion saying that a book should be written on the two of them with a tagline - 'A couple that travels in sneakers'. Anand agreed with us saying, "We actually do travel in sneakers. Now, she has a couple of sneakers and she pairs it everything now." On this note, we wish the two a Happy Wedding Anniversary well in advance.
  5. Four years after its original announcement, Aston Martin's first all-electric car is finally here. The company's Rapide sedan called the “Rapide E” made its debut at the Shangai Auto Show yesterday. Aston Martin didn't announce a price for the car, but it said only 155 Rapide E cars will ever be made. However, do you know what are we most excited about? To see Agent 007 drive the new all-electric car in the next Bond movie. For those of you who don't know, Aston Martin cars and James Bond movies have a huge history. Aston Martin's relationship with the 007 franchise began in 1964 when Sean Connery drove a DB5 sports car in Goldfinger. Well, if the reports are something to go by, the upcoming 25th James Bond (https://www.mensxp.com/special-features/james-bond-lifestyle/7551-10-best-james-bond-outfits.html) movie will see our 007 agent drive the new Rapide E. Of course, there's a lot of swift action sequences in the movie, and we think it's about time to put our agent in a zero-emission vehicle. © Aston Martin The new Rapide E is a powerful machine. It's powered by an 800-volt, 65kWh battery, which Aston Martin says will be able to travel over 200 miles on a single charge. The car has a twin motor fitted on the rear axle, which can generate 450kW and can get the car up to a top speed of 155 miles per hour. Also, the new Aston Martin Rapide E can go from 0 to 60 miles in under four seconds. The car is packed with a lot of other gizmos like a 10-inch digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, an 8-inch display mounted atop the centre of the dashboard, and more. The new Rapide E was said to hit the road in 2018, but there's no official word on its availability yet.
  6. After a really long time, we got an opportunity to watch the Indian opener play his kind of game in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League in the matchup between Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and his Delhi Capitals (DC) in a charge led by the youngster, Shreyas Iyer on Friday. Playing his best innings in the T20 format of the game, 'Gabbar' hit 11 fours and two sixes to build a career-best individual score of 97 runs in just 63 balls as he played a major role in Delhi Capitals' fourth victory of the season. With enough runs to make and enough deliveries left in hand, Dhawan found himself on the non-striker's end, with the thought of celebrating his maiden T20 century visible in his eyes clear as day, when his teammate and South African batsman Colin Ingram edged the ball for a four off the second delivery of the 19th over of KKR's bowling before managing a couple of singles in the following two deliveries. With only five runs needed, you'd imagine the Proteas hitter to make an effort to give the strike to the Indian southpaw. Alas, on the final ball of the 19th over, Ingram opened his bat and sent one flying over long on for a maximum, winning the game in great fashion while also becoming a party pooper for Dhawan's century dream. Evidently, Gabbar's fans did not take nicely to Ingram's heroics and let him hear it on social media: #KKRvsDC Colin Ingram: Sorry mate,Team comes First.. Dhawan: Yes of course..!! pic.twitter.com/ec7XcvW7ym — Jaimin Morbia (@jaimeme_morbia) April 12, 2019 Shikhar Dhawan fans waiting for Colin ingram pic.twitter.com/EwF4Fmzt0m — Shantanu kashyap (@Memeboishantanu) April 12, 2019 Shikhar dhawan waiting for Colin Ingram in dressing room @SDhawan25 #VIVOIPL #IPL2019 #KKRvsDC #KolkataKnightRiders #DelhiCapitals #Ingram #century pic.twitter.com/FlS5X0tav3 — Laxmikant (@Laxmika39545440) April 13, 2019 Kanipisthe narikaistha....

After winning four of their first seven games, Delhi Capitals are placed fourth on the league's points table and hope to get into the playoffs after having a disappointing season last year.
  7. From artsy nooks and streets, renaissance architecture, beautiful museums, picturesque landscapes to the breathtaking alps and lakes, Switzerland is hands down the most beautiful country in the world. As for those with calculators in their hands and the perennial question on their minds, yes it is one of the most expensive countries, but trust me it's totally worth it. You get what you pay for. After all, it ain't called 'Heaven on Earth' for no reason. And I am not talking to those who click selfies in traffic while coming to Gurgaon and post it with '#wanderlust'. I am talking to those who actually love to travel and are willing to go to any place to experience new things. Just like most of you people, my dream of travelling to Switzerland finally came true two weeks ago. Thanks to Switzerland Tourism and their fine hospitality, I got to experience how beautiful Luzern, Engelberg and Mount Titlis are and how there's so much more left to see than what meets the eye. MensXP You can find innumerable pictures of Switzerland on the internet, but what I captured on my phone is something you get only when you experience it all on your own. Switzerland is so beautiful that even these pictures I clicked on a phone look like the works of a professional photographer. MensXP If you ask me, I will say March is the best time to go. You get to experience surreal things and lots of winter sports activities. MensXP You can watch the sudden rain showers turn into a sunny day, while sipping hot chocolate in a boat cruise in Luzern (aka Lucerne). MensXP MensXP MensXP You can just stand in the snow and the backdrop will make you feel like you've entered Narnia. MensXP MensXP And, you can travel to Mount Titlis in minus 20 degrees and come back alive to talk about it. MensXP You can walk through the Glacier cave and manage to capture its beauty, despite your phone covered with frost. MensXP MensXP Switzerland is one place where you cannot crib about bad pictures, and if these pictures did not convince you, then here are some more that will make you fall in love with the place all over again.

  8. "A character that will stay with me forever...#Malti", wrote Deepika Padukone while sharing the first look from her upcoming movie 'Chhapaak'. Looks like, not just her, but this character and her first look will stay forever with everyone, given how amazing she looks as Malti. In fact, the credit goes to Deepika, the make-up artists who worked on the prosthetics and the entire crew of the movie. View this post on Instagram All things are ready, if our mind be so-William Shakespeare #Chhapaak @meghnagulzar @foxstarhindi @vikrantmassey87 A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Mar 20, 2019 at 1:51am PDT In case you missed it, this is Deepika's first look from the movie, where she plays the role of an acid attack survivor.

Laxmi was attacked when she was all of 15 by a man, after she refused to marry him. Ever since Deepika shared the picture on social media, people can't stop raving about her look, which has since gone viral on the internet.

  9. As one of the original eight teams that were established for the first season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) first in 2008, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have had a lot of experience in the league but not the silverware to boast about through the years. While having made it to the IPL final in 2009, 2011 and 2016, RCB have never won the trophy. Ever since the beginning, the team has seen some brilliant players like Rahul Dravid, AB de Villiers, Kevin Pietersen and now Virat Kohli, lead the squad in red and gold but have failed to win the tournament even once, making it one of three original franchises to have never lifted the cup. Last year, in the franchise's eleventh season in the league, Virat Kohli's men consisted of an outstanding coaching staff. With former Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori and Ashish Nehra as their bowling coaches and the World Cup winning coach for Team India, Gary Kirsten looking after the batting department, there was a lot of experience backing up RCB. The roster was loaded with big hitters like de Villiers, Brendon McCullum and King Kohli himself and a unique blend of spin and fast bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal and Australia's Nathan Coulter-Nile, who are wicket-hungry and in their prime shape. However, despite all the experience, skills and talent aboard, the Royal Challengers were not as good as they appeared on paper. Injuries, bad judgement calls and the lack of team chemistry on their part made Bangalore one of the worst teams of the league that did not even qualify for the playoffs and were at the third last position on IPL's points table, just two points above the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals), which was the worst team of them all. After their season ended on a rather forgettable note, Kohli expressed his displeasure with the team's performance in a tweet: I really believe in the concept of, "you either win or you learn". We fought hard and gave it our all but one thing is for sure, next season we definitely will bounce back stronger than ever with our learnings from this season. Take care. @RCBTweets #RCB #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/b0QM9chRAN — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 24, 2018 Kohli made a pledge to the RCB fans that they would look to make the necessary changes and try their best to be better this season and it looks like the management is dedicated to keeping that pledge. During the IPL auction ahead of the twelfth season of the league, RCB spent a total of Rs. 16.35 crores out of their purse of Rs. 18.15 crores on buying talents Shivam Dube (Rs 5cr), Shimron Hetmyer (Rs 4.2cr), Akshdeep Nath while retaining the core members of the team like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal. Squad: Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Moeen Ali, Mohammed Siraj, Colin de Grandhomme, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Shivam Dube, Heinrich Klassen, Gurkeerat Singh, Himmat Singh, Prayas Ray Barman, Mandeep Singh
  10. Disha Patani may be on the 'wanted' list of all movie makers right now (courtesy her insane good looks and of course sheer talent and hard work), but there was a time when the young girl from Bareilly was a struggling actress like most of her contemporaries.

  11. 35-year-old Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, the IAF combat pilot who took down a Pakistani F-16, and did the unthinkable using a MiG-21 to achieve this feat, had been in the news all of last week for his show of valour and selflessness, when it came to performing his duty with the utmost bravery, and maintaining his cool during his captivity. (c) Twitter Abhinandan was captured by the Pakistan Army after he crash-landed across the LoC post an aerial dogfight with his Pakistani counterparts who had infiltrated the Indian airspace early morning on 27th February, in retaliation to India's airstrike on terror camps in Pakistan and PoK on 26th February. Abhinandan became international news when the entire world took notice of the combat pilot's show of courage and calm under during his interrogation, inspiring respect from people around the world. (c) Twitter Having spent over 58 hours in Pakistani captivity, Abhinandan was finally released by the Pakistani government late evening on 1st March in keeping with the diktats of the Geneva Convention for Prisoners of War. The entire nation joined in the celebrations to welcome Abhinandan back, and now, the Akhil Bharatiya Digambar Jain Mahasamiti has declared that the Wing Commander shall be the first recipient of the 'Bhagwan Mahavir Ahimsa Puraskar' instituted by the organisation. (c) Twitter The announcement regarding the award for Abhinandan was announced in New Delhi by Manidra Jain, whereas the Maharashtra chapter convener Paras Lohade stated that the award. carrying a cash prize of Rs 2.51 lakh, a memento and a citation, will be presented to Abhinandan on Mahavir Jayanti, which will be celebrated on April 17th this year.
  12. With the weekend coming up and maximum number people looking forward to party hard, a true sports fan would be the happiest, sitting at home, glued to the television box and watching back-to-back fixtures across all sports. From India and Australia's last series before the World Cup starting tomorrow to a mouthwatering El Clasico, you have got to cancel out on all your plans for the next two days. India Vs Australia, 1st ODI (Saturday 1:30 PM ) © AP Before the Australian challenge, the Indian cricket team were carrying themselves with confidence from their victories on foreign soil in the recent past. But an astonishing comeback for the underrated Aussies reversed the equation of this on-going tour of Australia. Having being white-washed in the T20I series by 2-0, the Men in Blue would definitely pull up their socks for the Aussie's challenge in the upcoming five-match ODI series. With first ODI taking place at Hyderabad, tomorrow, let's see what Kolhi & Co. have in store for us. Real Madrid Vs Barcelona (Sunday 1:15 AM) © Reuters We should consider ourselves really lucky that we are witnessing back-to-back El Clasico matchups in a space of three days. The last fixture between Real and Barca was a one-sided event where Barca completely ruled over Santiago Bernueba and registered a 3-0 win to book a place in the final of Copa Del Ray. Eyeing revenge, Sergio Ramos & Co. would make sure that they put forward their best team effort unlike last one. With Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele on the other side, one thing can be confirmed, that this would definitely be a super exciting match to watch. Tottenham Vs Arsenal (Saturday 6:00 PM) © Reuters With El Clasico on one side, there is North London Derby on the other, where Arsenal would be travelling to Wembley Stadium to face Tottenham Hotspurs in a league match. While the Gunners are coming from an emphatic home win over Bournemouth by 5-1, Tottenham are still being trolled over their late-game blunder by Trippier in their 0-2 lose against Chelsea. Tottenham, currently on the 3rd position in the league table, can get a tough competition by the away team as if Arsenal wins, it would place them just a point away from Spurs to take the third spot. Other fixtures from the English Premier League are : Manchester United Vs Southampton (Saturday 8:30 PM) Bournemouth Vs Manchester City (Saturday 8:30 PM) Fulham Vs Chelsea (Sunday 7:35 PM) Everton Vs Liverpool (Sunday 9:45 PM) Napoli Vs Juventus (Monday 1:00 AM) © Reuters In Series A fixture, the table-toppers Juventus go head-to-head with Napoli, who are right behind them. Both played an away game as their last match and where Napoli won 4-0 over Parma, Juventus could only score a single goal to register the win over Bologna. This would be a challenging game for Massimiliano Allegri and his men, as Napoli seems to be a strong side keeping in mind their unbeaten seven-match streak in the league. Other fixtures to look forward in Series A are: Lazio Vs Roma (Sunday 1:00 AM) Atlanta Vs Fiorentina (Sunday 10:30 PM)
  13. The Indian cricket team created history after beating Australia in the Test series and, then, they clinched a 2-1 win in the ODIs, bringing an end to their much-anticipated tour on a high. On the back of a prolific showing Down Under, the Virat Kohli-led brigade was once again tipped as favourites, when the Australian team came calling for two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five ODIs. But, contrary to popular perception, the hosts stuttered to a narrow three-wicket loss in the first T20I against Aaron Finch's men in Visakhapatnam. Nathan Coulter-Nile's impressive figures of 3-26 and Glenn Maxwell's blistering knock of 56 runs powered Australia to a thrilling win and allowed them to take a pivotal 1-0 lead in the series. © AP Despite a mediocre performance with the willow that saw India posting a paltry total of 126 runs, the bowling unit did a fairly decent job to keep the hosts in the game. In the end, it boiled down to 16 runs off 12 balls when Jasprit Bumrah came to bowl the penultimate over. With his side in dire need of his expertise, the right-arm seamer bowled arguably the best over of the match, conceding just two runs and taking two wickets. Bumrah's brilliant 19th over tilted the game in India's favour, as Australia found themselves facing at a potential defeat with 14 runs required off last six deliveries and tailenders Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson at the crease. © AP But, if Bumrah gave India an upper hand with an impactful over, Umesh Yadav's toothless bowling ensured all his teammate's efforts went in vain. Asked to bowl the final over, Umesh had 14 runs to defend off six deliveries against the Aussie tailenders. But, the 31-year-old failed to keep his nerve and gave away two crucial boundaries (including one off a poor full-toss) to eventually spell doom for his side. Umesh's poor bowling display that cost India the game in Vizag attracted a lot of criticism from the fans. While some asked him to learn the art of bowling in death overs from Bumrah, others went on to label him as India's villain for the match.

  14. One year ago today, the nation mourned and woke up to the tragic news that Bollywood's legend and one of the most beautiful women this world had seen, Sridevi, left us after her untimely demise. Her family, friends and fans are still numb and find it hard to believe that the veteran actress left the world too soon, leaving behind a legacy and a million memories for her loved ones. Today, on the first anniversary of her untimely death, her family & friends are paying tribute to the legend in their own way. View this post on Instagram My heart will always be heavy.

  15. In an avalanche of political biopics this year, there is a new surprise entry which no one knew about. After 'The Accidenal Prime Minister' and 'Thackeray' creating a major buzz in the nation, the trailer for a biopic on Rahul Gandhi dropped today, completely unannounced. Before we even begin to dissect it, let's just have a look at it first. The trailer follows a young Rahul swimming while his grandmother Indira Gandhi looks upon him dotingly. It is established that he shares a very warm relationship with his grandmom and his father and the death of the PM affects him more than others. 'My Name Is Raga' Trailer Out: Rahul Gandhi's Biopic Unveils First Look #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi @INCIndia @WithPGV @rahulgandhi2020 @rupeshpaul @priyankac19 @BJP4India @AjayLalluINC @SaralPatel @Chiranjeev_INC https://t.co/jOavO0AOLD pic.twitter.com/erMQskqHap — News World India (@NewsWorldIN) February 10, 2019 The trailer then shows a caricature (if I may call it that) of ex PM Manmohan Singh and an agitated Modi Ji as well. We see the grown up leader form of Rahul Gandhi who ends up winning hearts of everyone. The trailer ends on a very vague note and while the acting and dialogue delivery is quite questionable, we wonder why couldn't the direction be a bit more serious? This looks more like a parody and that's exactly what social media is wondering about. Brace yourself, biopic on Rahul Gandhi is on its way. The trailer is terribly cheap, it's as poor as his political ability.. Such a third class making & what a director is chosen who has made legendary movies in the past. ðð #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi https://t.co/gUzml5VEe1 — Vikram Joshi (@vikramajoshi) February 9, 2019 Trailer starts with "tumne hume jeetna sikhaya hai"ð Is this movie made by @RahulGandhi haters to troll him under the pretense of a bio pic?ð#MyNameIsRaGa https://t.co/28x8JqR24d — Voice Noteswali Krutika ð¹ð (@certifiedKruti) February 9, 2019 People are wondering if this is some sort of an elaborate joke and if the movie is releasing on 1st April.

  16. Joining Chelsea from Real Madrid for a then club-record fee of 60 million pounds, Alvaro Morata was looked upon as the next big striker who would go on rule the goal-scoring charts for the Blues in the Premier League. But, contrary to popular perception, Morata suffered a goal drought that eventually saw him becoming the weakest link at the Stamford Bridge. Amid high criticism and consistent backlash from fans, the Spanish could only make 45 appearances for the Blues - wherein he scored just 16 goals - before being loaned out to Atletico Madrid until the end of the 2019-20 season. While Gonzalo Higuain occupied his place in the Chelsea and immediately made an impact scoring twice on his home debut, Morata's poor run continued on his first game for Madrid.

But, the Diego Simeone side struggled to break down Real Betis before stuttering to a 0-1 defeat at the Benito Villamarin stadium. Morata was preferred for full 90 minutes, but the Spaniard had little influence on the game. The Madrid forward had four efforts on goal but none managed to go past Betis shot-stopper Pau Lopez. A 63-minute handball by Felipe Luis inside the penalty box gave the hosts a chance to take the lead and Sergio Canales made no mistake from the spot-kick. Real Betis goal. Barcelona go six points clear on top as it stands. #RealBetis #Barcelona #atleticomadrid pic.twitter.com/hoL7bVHtA0 — Maestro Messi (@Messischip) February 3, 2019 The victory was Betis' first against Madrid since Simeone took over late in 2011. On the other hand, the visitors suffered their first loss in 19 league games on Morata's debut. Simeone's team was unbeaten since their 0-2 loss at Celta Vigo in the third of games. Their latest setback was only the third loss for Atletico in 33 games in all competition this season. For a man who has been desperate to break away from his slump at Chelsea, Morata did his reputation no good following a poor show on his debut for Madrid. Owing to his lacklustre form, the Spanish footballer became the butt of all jokes with football fans taking turns to troll him on the social media.

  17. As Mithali Raj walked today into the Seddon Park for the toss as the captain of the Indian cricket team ahead of the third ODI in Hamilton, she created history once again, becoming the first woman to play 200 ODIs. Adding another feat to an already decorated career, Raj's spot in the ICC Hall of Fame is a no-brainer. What's your favourite memory of @M_Raj03'S ODI career? pic.twitter.com/h7HGFJfWYv — ICC (@ICC) February 1, 2019 At the age of 36, if she was asked what career-path would she want to pursue, she would certainly choose that of a cricketer, but a 9-year-old Raj would have said that she wanted to pursue a career in dance. Unlike a lot of aspiring cricketers, Mithali Raj was never one to have sleepless nights fantasizing about donning that blue kit and representing India on an international level. In fact, as a child, Raj had no plans to join the sport which is so famously known as a 'gentleman's game'. The skipper has made it absolutely clear that the only reason she took to cricket was because her father, Dorai Raj forced her to play cricket just because she was extremely lazy and her dad wanted her to be more active, which had no impact on her lifestyle whatsoever as she continues to be equally lazy (her words, not ours). “My dad made a decision to turn me into a professional cricketer. The hours of training sessions and the performance in the game… these are the things that started too early for me as an 11-year-old,” Raj shares in an interview with the ICC. “At that phase when I started putting so many hours in the game, I really realised that… I have stopped enjoying the game and at some point, I hated my dad for putting me into the sport.” Ever since she made her ODI debut on 25th June 1995, she's had multiple spells as the captain of the Indian women's cricket team, the first one coming just before the 2005 World Cup. The young batswoman was nervous to shoulder the responsibility one because it was during the biggest tournament of all and two, because a lot of senior players and even an ex-captain was in the team, which now belonged to her. But that was probably the only instance Mithali truly shook in her boots. With a résumé with 20 years-worth of experience, the Indian skipper has no more jitters to confront. While most players indulge in boosting their morale before going out to bat, the veteran can be calmly reading a book with her kit on. “I am the senior-most player in the team. I am a more mature leader and I have no apprehensions any more,” she said in an interview with the Times of India. © ICC Mithali Raj is probably one of the wisest sportspersons of our generation who, despite facing so much of criticism as a player, a teammate, and even for just being herself, continues to do her thing without caring about what the world has to say. She has turned something that she used to completely despise, into something which helped her make a mark for herself and become one of best, and that is something every young athlete must try and imbibe.
  18. Priyanka Chopra is back to work after a month-long hiatus courtesy her lavish wedding to Nick Jonas. She was on Ellen De Generes' popular show where she announced that her next big project will be a biopic on Ma Anand Sheela, which will be a very exciting project for sure. Currently, she is awaiting the release of her next Hollywood movie 'Isn't It Romantic' which stars Rebel Wilson and Chris Hemsworth. The romantic comedy follows the story of Natalie, an architect who tries very hard to get noticed at her job. Priyanka is playing the role of a Yoga ambassador in the movie. The movie is hitting theatres in February but there's some good news for Indian fans, because this will be her first movie which will release on Netflix directly on 28th February. In terms of Bollywood releases, Priyanka will be seen in 'The Sky Is Pink' opposite Farhan Akhtar.

  20. In a one of a kind incident, the first of five ODI matches to be played between India and New Zealand was temporarily halted as the setting sun was adversely impacting the batsmen's sight, causing them discomfort. Meanwhile in Napier...#NZvIND pic.twitter.com/3p5j18O3hg — ICC (@ICC) January 23, 2019 "The setting sun is directly in the eyes of the batsmen. So we got to consider the safety of the players, umpires. So we have decided to suspend play until conditions improve. This is the first time in my 14 years that I have seen something like this happen on a cricket field. Good news is we have 30 minutes extra time. We are hoping to be back in 30 minutes and it will still be a 50-over game," umpire Shaun Haig explained. The problem seems to be with the orientation of Napier's McLean Park cricket ground in which the wicket runs from East to West unlike a typical pitch running from North to South. After the match, when Bill Dalton, Mayor of Napier was asked about the uncanny incident by local press, he said: “To be absolutely honest with you, my view is that these guys are sportsmen who play outside. If they get a bit of sun in their eyes that's part of the game.” “It's an outdoor sport and they've got to toughen up… It's all a bit weird to me,” said the unsympathetic mayor. To be clear, the mayor was not targeting the Indian cricketers in particular. The decision to pause the game until sunset was that of both sides and Kane Williamson's silent agreement to the umpire's suggestion to delay the game was enough to prove the legitimacy of the issue. Clinical. #TeamIndia start off the series with a 8-wicket win against New Zealand in the 1st ODI. 1-0 ð®ð³ð®ð³ #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/P4lLKjoCvu — BCCI (@BCCI) January 23, 2019 The hold-up had little effect on the game as only one run and one over were reduced following the Duckworth-Lewis method. India won the game comfortably with eight wickets in hand while Mohammed Shami won the Man of the Match who scalded three wickets to become the fastest Indian to take 100 wickets in One Day Internationals.
  21. Over the years, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has added value to the Indian cricket team in multiple roles. His wide array of stroke-making has aided Team India in crunch situations. Then, his leadership skills allowed the Indian team to scale new heights in international cricket. And, when it comes to his wicket-keeping skills, not many can match Dhoni's brilliance from behind the stumps. Such has been his know-how of the game that despite renouncing his captaincy, Dhoni is still seen setting up the field and guiding bowlers as to where to bowl. Dhoni's advice has, for long, been hailed by the Indian bowlers who've often credited the former Indian captain for their wickets. © BCCL Following an impressive outing Down Under, the Jharkhand cricketer continued to make his presence felt during the 1st ODI between India and New Zealand at McLean Park in Napier. Mohammed Shami's effective first spell had already pushed the Kiwis on the backfoot when the spin-bowling duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal came together to bamboozle the opposition batsmen. In the 38th over, the hosts were nearing their end with just 157 runs on board at the loss of nine wickets. With Kuldeep bowling his final over in the match, the likes of Tim Southee and Trent Boult were looking to get as many runs as possible to give their side a chance of defending the total. And, those intentions bore fruit as Southee clubbed the Indian chinaman for a six over the square boundary. A single on the second-last delivery of the over brought out-of-sorts Boult on the strike. Fancying the opportunity to claim the last wicket, Dhoni was heard instructing Kuldeep before his final delivery of the game. "Ye aankh band karke rokega. Andar nahi aana chahiye. Idhar se daal. Isko doosra wala dal sakta hai," Dhoni quipped from behind the stumps in his usual baritone. "Yeh aank band karke rokega. Dusra waala daal sakta hai isko." MS Dhoni from behind the stumps reads Boult, suggests Kuldeep to bowl a googly. Kuldeep obliges and Rohit takes a simple catch at first slip. NZ have been bowled out for 157. #CricketMeriJaan #NZvIND — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) January 23, 2019 Soon after, Kuldeep followed suit, bowling the googly - advised by Dhoni - from around the wicket. The trick worked like magic as a clueless Boult tried his best to defend before edging the ball straight into the hands of Rohit Sharma at the first slip. Following Boult's departure, Kuldeep, who finished off with impressive figures 4-39, beamed with joy and disbelief as to how exactly Dhoni managed to predict the nature of the dismissal. How wonderfully @msdhoni set up the last wicket for Kuldeep if you heard his instructions to the bowler! Terrific performance by India, terribly disappointing by New Zealand: dented by Shami, demolished by the spinners. Should be an easy chase — Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) January 23, 2019 It was, once again, one of those priceless moments where Dhoni, on the back of his vast experience, helped a bowler in effecting a dismissal. The 37-year-old might not be able to do a lot of things he once used to pull off with relative ease, but Dhoni, in all the ways possible, continues to prove how important he is for Team India.
  22. Looks like, the year 2019 will be owned by politicians. Not because the elections are here, but because of the killer line-up of political dramas. From 'Thackeray' to 'The Accidental Prime Minister', a lot of big movies are releasing this year that revolves around the lives of politicians and the impact it had on the country. We all know that Vivek Oberoi will be playing Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an upcoming biopic, 'PM Narendra Modi'. The movie is being directed by Omung Kumar. Now the first look is out and let's just say he looks unrecongnizable in the poster. Well, can't say anything about looking like PM Modi though. à¤à¤¯ हिनà¥à¤¦. à°à± హిà°à°¦à±. à®à¯à®¯à¯ ஹிநà¯à®¤à¯. Jai Hind ð®ð³ð We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. #AkhandBharat #PMNarendraModi pic.twitter.com/t0lQVka7mJ — Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) January 7, 2019 As soon as the first look was out, Twitter turned its savage mode on and trolled the hell out of the reel-life PM Modi. From Salman Khan's cameo to calling him the "ugliest lookalike in history of all biopics", there was no shortage of memes and jokes on his first look. Honestly, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Anupam Kher have set the bar so high with their transformation, that comparisons are bound to happen.

  23. Colin O'Brady from Portland, Oregon just wrote history by becoming the first person to get across the Antarctica alone, with no outside aid. He trekked across the continent over a span of 54 days, which was almost considered impossible until the man did it, and achieved the impossible! While O'Brady made his journey across the 1,500 kilometres in the bone-chilling cold, his friends and family could track his movement real-time online. Once he successfully completed his journey, O'Brady called his family in Portland and said “I did it” through his teary exhilaration. View this post on Instagram Day 54: FINISH LINE!!! I did it! The Impossible First â. 32 hours and 30 minutes after leaving my last camp early Christmas morning, I covered the remaining ~80 miles in one continuous “Antarctica Ultramarathon” push to the finish line. The wooden post in the background of this picture marks the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf, where Antarctica's land mass ends and the sea ice begins. As I pulled my sled over this invisible line, I accomplished my goal: to become the first person in history to traverse the continent of Antarctica coast to coast solo, unsupported and unaided. While the last 32 hours were some of the most challenging hours of my life, they have quite honestly been some of the best moments I have ever experienced. I was locked in a deep flow state the entire time, equally focused on the end goal, while allowing my mind to recount the profound lessons of this journey. I'm delirious writing this as I haven't slept yet. There is so much to process and integrate and there will be many more posts to acknowledge the incredible group of people who supported this project. But for now, I want to simply recognize my #1 who I, of course, called immediately upon finishing. I burst into tears making this call. I was never alone out there. @jennabesaw you walked every step with me and guided me with your courage and strength. WE DID IT!! We turned our dream into reality and proved that The Impossible First is indeed possible. “It always seems impossible until it's done.” - Nelson Mandela. #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible A post shared by Colin O'Brady (@colinobrady) on Dec 26, 2018 at 12:55pm PST His wife Jenna Besaw said in an interview, “it was an emotional call. He seemed overwhelmed by love and gratitude, and he really wanted to say thank you to all of us.” 33-year-old O'Brady posted about the first leg of his journey on Instagram, which he labelled as 'The Impossible First'. On Wednesday, O'Brady wrote that he covered the last 129 kilometres in one big impromptu push to the finish line that took over a day's time! View this post on Instagram Day 50: STRUNG OUT BUT STILL MOVING. I can't believe I been out here all alone for 50 days. Even having lived it, I can't quite wrap my mind around it. This wind storm still has not subsided so I spent another day getting beat down. Fingers crossed I catch a break on the weather soon. I've been writing a lot about the mental game as it's clearly the most crucial part of this challenge (or any challenge for that matter). However today I want to honor my body and health. I wholeheartedly believe that nothing in life is more important that being healthy. Without that it's hard to do or do fully. I'm so fortunate to have parents that instilled that in me from a young age, teaching me the importance of healthy eating and exercise. My dad is an organic farmer so I guess you could say it's in my blood. Despite feeling exhausted and worn out, I'm grateful for having lived a healthy lifestyle, for without that I'm certain my body would have given up by now. And on the health front, I'm glad to be partnered with @Grandrounds who go above and beyond to guide people to the highest quality healthcare. It's incredible to know they provide access to medical expertise literally anywhere on the planet! #GrandRounds #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible A post shared by Colin O'Brady (@colinobrady) on Dec 22, 2018 at 8:46pm PST In his exact words, this is how he felt once he crossed the 'invisible line' onto the other side where his goal lay, “While the last 32 hours were some of the most challenging hours of my life, they have quite honestly been some of the best moments I have ever experienced. I was locked in a deep flow state the entire time, equally focused on the end goal, while allowing my mind to recount the profound lessons of this journey.” View this post on Instagram Day 42: DREAMS INTO REALITY. Even though I'm 50 miles past the South Pole now, I can't help but post one more image from the day I arrived - a dream come true. Plus, today is a very historic date. On December 14, 1911, this day exactly 107 years ago, Amundsen became the first person to reach the South Pole. Talk about inspiration. That was a true journey into the unknown that took years and years to complete. I finished a bike ride in 2016 and got the spark of inspiration for this project. I immediately came home and wrote it all down on my whiteboard. Since that day I've been working everyday to turn this dream into reality; training, fundraising, researching. The key is that each day I took a step toward making my dream a reality even with countless setbacks and mistakes made along the way, I kept trying. I haven't realized the dream yet. That's what I'm doing every day out here...taking step after step to make it come true. Whatever you are dreaming of in life, be that in business, art, music, love, entrepreneurship, sports - it can be anything. Stop just dreaming and take the first step. As in the immortal words of Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it!!” But dreaming alone won't get you there. If it's going to work, action is required. #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible Shoutout to @samuel.a.harrison for snapping this amazing shot of me. Samuel and another scientist from the South Pole station read about my journey in the @nytimes and came outside to the Pole to cheer me on! A post shared by Colin O'Brady (@colinobrady) on Dec 14, 2018 at 4:55pm PST It isn't the first time that someone has tried to traverse across Antarctica, but all those who did, either had assistance, reinforced supplies or kites that propelled them forward. 2016 saw the tragic end of British explorer Henry Worsley, who attempted an unassisted journey across Antarctica, and died of exhaustion towards the end of the trek. View this post on Instagram Day 37: GROWTH. I'm no longer the same person I was when I left on the journey, can you see it in my face? I've suffered, been deathly afraid, cold and alone. I've laughed and danced, cried tears of joy and been awestruck with love and inspiration. They say growth happens when you step outside your comfort zone. I can safely say that's 100% true in this case, and I'd say it's very possible I haven't yet felt the highest highs and the lowest lows of this journey yet. Nearing the bottom of the world...18 miles in the books today. Closer each step. #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible A post shared by Colin O'Brady (@colinobrady) on Dec 9, 2018 at 5:24pm PST The trek hasn't been an easy one for him, and he confessed that he considered quitting a number of times along the way. In November, this is what he had to say, “There were several times I considered stopping, putting my tent back up and calling it a day. I wanted so badly to quit today as I was feeling exhausted and alone, but remembering all of the positivity that so many people have been sending, I took a deep breath and focused on maintaining forward progress one step at a time and managed to finish a full day.” View this post on Instagram January 2016 at the South Pole. This photo was taken at the beginning of my Explorers Grand Slam expedition. Less than three years later, I'm looking forward to passing through there again! I'm 30 days into my journey to complete a solo, unsupported, unaided crossing of Antarctica. Yesterday I reached 87 degrees the final waypoint before turning my path directly toward the Pole. Today, I'm ~170 miles from the South Pole and making my way one step at a time! If you haven't seen the Sunday @NYTimes article already, pick up a copy today. Top of the fold cover of Sunday Sports, the article features a day in the life rundown of what my hour-by-hour routine looks like as I cross Antarctica. @jennabesaw tells me there is a beautiful illustration of my IG photo update from Day 15. I can't wait to see it; will someone save me a copy? ðThanks again to @adamskolnick for reporting. Link in Bio. Check it out! And, be on the lookout for my regular evening IG update later today. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/29/sports/antarctica-ski-race.html A post shared by Colin O'Brady (@colinobrady) on Dec 2, 2018 at 9:53am PST O'Brady didn't give up on his dreams and constantly kept his goals in sight, which is why he was able to achieve the unachievable! All of us, regardless of our nationality must be proud of O'Brady's grit and achievements! View this post on Instagram DAY 9: THE NEW YORK TIMES. This photo ran in NYTimes today with a great piece “Man Against Nature, And Man” about my Impossible First project and Lou Rudd's expedition. I have nothing but the utmost respect and empathy for anyone who sets audacious goals for themselves and takes action to achieve them. Wishing Lou a safe and successful journey. #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/11/sports/antarctica-race.html A post shared by Colin O'Brady (@colinobrady) on Nov 11, 2018 at 6:05pm PST The man who has 3 world records to his name, covered 7 summits and is a pro-endurance athlete, deserves to be at the top of the world for what he has achieved. This one calls for major celebrations, which only seem inevitable once O'Brady reaches home to the cheerful welcome of his family and friends.
  24. The Kargil War had been one of the most dramatic, turnaround military events at the turn of the century in 1999. Hundreds of soldiers were martyred on the battlefield and thousands ended up as war casualties between May-July 1999. While the war ended with the ousting of the Pakistani Army from the Indian territory and put into display the terrific side of Indian warfare, the mentions and accolades for the Kargil warriors are limited to just a few. The war saw the best of joint efforts by all the warriors involved, the Army, Navy and the Air Force, yet names such as Gunjan Saxena do not get the amount of recognition and mention which is due to them for their contribution during the war. © Facebook Gunjan Saxena - we haven't heard of this name enough. We do not know about her enough. Somehow the world does its share to remember and revere the ones who gave their lives for the motherland, and rightly so. But why is it that we end up losing sight of all the others who stood up and stood out during such moments of crisis? Gunjan Saxena happens to be one such person. She is a warrior, and one to be feared at that. Gunjan is one of India's first combat aviators who went all guns blazing into the battlefield and came out a winner! Coming from a family of warriors, sensational patriotism ran in her blood since she first let out her warcry as a baby! Her father and brother were Army warriors, and her choice to join the forces was a natural inclination. A Delhi University graduate from Hansraj College, Gunjan became one of the 25 young women who formed the first batch of women IAF trainee pilots in 1994. She was the first one to set precedent back in 1999, by getting inducted into the fighter squadron. She, along with a few other female pilots became the ideal role model who showed the then apprehensive society, that women could do wonders as fighter pilots too! © Twitter Even after her induction, tough times were ahead for Gunjan. The Armed forces was a male-dominated space, much like today, and women had to constantly prove their mettle while carrying out their missions. Her chance finally came with the outbreak of the war with Pakistan over Kargil in 1999. Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Sharma flew over a highly troubled zone, where the Pakistani had let its senseless killing on the loose. With all hands on deck, Gunjan was assigned the task of carrying out medical evacuations, supply drops and spotting Pakistani positions on the ground. Equipped with the tiny, unarmed Cheetah helicopters which were very vulnerable to enemy attacks, Gunjan continuously flew in and out of the trouble war zone without giving a damn about her safety. Reportedly, a Pakistani missile barely missed her chopper right before take-off during an attack, and many more death scares looked her at the time, but she continued to carry out her tasks without any slack. Gunjan even carried a fully loaded INSAS assault rifle and a revolver with her, in case of a crash landing near the enemy base, so she could die fighting, if that's what it took. © BCCL Talking to NDTV, she said, "I think it is the ultimate feeling that you can ever have as a helicopter pilot. That was one of our main roles there - casualty evacuation. I would say it's a very satisfying feeling when you save a life because that is what you're there for.” After seven years of service, Gunjan's tenure as a chopper fighter came to an end, while she also ended up getting awarded with a Shaurya Veer award for her excellent show of courage and valour. That also makes her one of the first women to be awarded such honour by the Indian Army. Her story is not often told but needs to be put out there, and seems like we won't have to wait much longer to witness it unravel before our eyes. Earlier today, the first look of Janhvi Kapoor, who is playing the role of Gunjan Saxena in the war hero's biopic went viral on social media. View this post on Instagram Janhvi Kapoor's first look as Gunjan Saxena, the first female IAS pilot will leave you in awe of the actress! @pinkvilla ð. . #janhvikapoor #firstlook #gunjansaxena #iaspilot #actress #bollywood #sweet #beautiful #adorable #celebration #pinkvilla A post shared by Pinkvilla (@pinkvilla) on Dec 25, 2018 at 10:53pm PST As per latest reports, Janhvi will undergo basic flying lessons and will also spend more time personally interacting with Gunjan to understand and portray her role better. It has also been reported that Dulquer Salmaan will be paired alongside Janhvi in the movie that is being produced by Karan Johar.
  25. Microsoft has overtaken Apple to become the most valuable company in the world and the two companies are still battling it out for the top spot. This has come after a gruelling week for tech companies, where the stock for major tech companies has been recovering. Microsoft reached a valuation of $814 billion as of Tuesday, while Apple's cap was slightly less at $805 billion. © Reuters The two companies are still battling it out and Microsoft's rise could be credited to its continued traction with cloud computing. The last time Microsoft secured a lead over Apple was back in 2010 whereas Apple became the first company in the world to achieve a $1 trillion market cap earlier this year. Amazon shortly followed while Microsoft is yet to achieve that milestone. © Microsoft Microsoft mainly caters to business which has attributed to the company's rising stock price, whereas investors have punished consumer-centric companies. Both Apple and Amazon are down 23 percent since the start of October. In the past, Microsoft fell behind Apple as computing needs moved from desktop computers to mobile devices such as the iPhone. This made Microsoft's dominance in the PC market null and resulted in a decline in stock price. Having said that, Microsoft now caters to businesses and even governments with its Azure cloud computing platform. According to Bloomberg “the rise of cloud computing changed Microsoft's fortunes about five years ago. Under Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella, the company invested heavily in data centres and other infrastructure to run applications and store data for corporate customers.” Microsoft is now second behind Amazon Web Services in the cloud computing business, which has resulted in making the company one of the most valuable companies in the world.
