  2. It has been more than two years since the Men in Blue lost by a massive 180 margin to Sarfaraz Ahmed's Pakistan cricket team in the final of the 2017 edition of Champions Trophy which took place at The Oval in London. Considered to be the most dominating force in the world of international cricket, Virat Kohli's boys were being viewed as the tournament favourites and were expected to take home the title for a record third time. But the Pakistan side were focused and had come to lift the trophy. After losing the toss, Pakistan were asked to bat first and thanks to some brilliant innings played by openers Fakhar Zaman (114) and Azhar Ali (59), their team total mounted up to 338 in 50 overs. On the other hand, bowler Mohammad Amir dismissed the best batsmen of the Indian side in Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, while Dhoni was dismissed by Hasan Ali. © Reuters Under such circumstances, when India desperately needed someone to control the bleeding and score big runs, all-rounder Hardik Pandya entered the field and was nearly successful in turning around the game in favour of his team. Hitting four 4's and six 6's during his innings, Pandya scored 76 runs off just 43 balls. However, a tiny miscommunication between Pandya and teammate Ravindra Jadeja led to the extremely unfortunate dismissal of the in-form batsman. In the 27th over, both batsmen came out of the crease for a single but Jadeja quickly turned his back on Pandya and saved himself, leaving Pandya in the middle of the pitch with Mohammad Hafeez running him out. This led to a fuming Pandya being forced to exit the field, visibly upset at his teammate. “When you are in that situation, nothing goes through your mind. That time it was just anger because I was in the zone… I went into the dressing room and started throwing things.” Pandya admits in the video interview with the International Cricket Council (ICC). “I went to 'Jaddu' and said 'I am extremely sorry. It was not intentional, no matter what happened, I am not that guy'.” “He is kind of a chill person who doesn't take a lot of pressure on himself,” Ravindra Jadeja praised Pandya in the same video. “He is kind of a rockstar, I would say.” It is such a camaraderie between the members of the Indian cricket team, one of the most effective and powerful sides in international cricket, that continues to bring in success for them.

  4. Bitcoin has plunged below far below US$ 5,000 and is currently trading for just US$ 4,300. The year has turned out to be a nightmare for investors who touted the cryptocurrency to be the future and had made high investments. Within a week, it has lost more than 25 per cent of its value due to sell-off by traders. The last time Bitcoin sunk this low was in October 2017. Even other cryptocurrencies like Ripple's XRP and Ethereum's Ether fell as much as 14 and 16 per cent respectively. Since last year, the rise in enthusiasm for bitcoin led to a rush of investment and speculation around cryptocurrencies and blockchain-related startups. © Reuters But the consistently declining prices and growing scepticism isn't going well with short-term investors. Also, there have been claims that bitcoin's previous price increases were artificially inflated. The U.S Justice Department is currently investigating whether Bitcoin's high market value last year was an outcome of trade manipulation. Bitcoin has plummeted over 75 per cent this year from a peak of US$ 20,000 touched in December. The cryptocurrency was holding off at US$ 6,000 for quite some time, but the lack of a bounce meant investors were seeing a red flag and getting bearish. © TradingView Adding to this, the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) penalised two cryptocurrency companies that held an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) without registration with the regulator. Bitcoin Cash has also undergone a "hard fork", meaning the offshoot of the original Bitcoin was split into two, and the community has been internally fighting. Hence, mainstream investors have stayed clear of Bitcoin with concerns over scant regulatory oversight. © SCMP A cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency that is based on a technology called blockchain. Here computers compete against each other to solve complex math problems. That computing power creates a distributed, secure and transparent network ledger- commonly known as a blockchain on which applications such as Bitcoin can be built. According to industry tracker Coinmarketcap, the total value of cryptocurrencies is now around $154 billion, down from a peak of around $800 billion in January.
  5. In 2017, Bollywood saw a major shock coming almost every other weekend, with most of the films declared disasters at the box office. Except for a few, most went by without notice and barely lasted more than a week in theatres. So, what caused Bollywood to fail while Hollywood & local language films triumphed at the same time? Let us take a look: 1. Old Wine In A New Bottle Bollywood, time and again, has relied on the same fodder, while the audience is desperate for a change. Most of the films barely managed to hold the content together and the end result was either a headache like SRK's 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' or a sob fest like Salman's' 'Tubelight'. It was just the same remakes or usual masala flicks. © Red Chillies Entertainment 2. 'Baahubali' Further with the release of 'Baahubali: The Conclusion', the demand and expectations of movie-goers sky-rocketed. The movie-going experience was not proportionate to the price paid for a ticket at the theatre. The bar set by 'Baahubali' was sky-high and most of the films fell flat in comparison. These films where nothing when compared to the grandeur and the experience of the movies like 'Baahubali'. © Arka Media Works 3. Content Driven Cinema With new content being available in smaller films, the audience appreciated these films and finally, content-driven movies found their well-deserved space. With 'Newton' in Hindi, 'Aruvi' in Tamil, 'Shuddhi' in Kannada and 'Posto' in Bengali to name a few, content-driven cinema brought its own audiences eating into a chunk of the revenue share of other big commercial and mainstream cinema. 4. Box Office Success of Local Language Films With the acceptance of local language films in every corner of the country, like 'Baahubali' in Telugu, 'Vikram Vedha' in Tamil, 'Manje Bistre' in Punjabi, 'Kirik Party' and 'Raajakumara' in Kannada, and each of them earning huge sums while keeping the audiences interested, the competition only got tougher. © White Hill Studio 5. Competition from Hollywood Facing major competition from Hollywood, Bollywood was finding it hard to sail. Hollywood films bring a huge chunk of the audience to theatres because of the multiple formats on offer for a big screen experience - IMAX 3D, Regular 3D and the 4DX extravaganza. Also, it brought family audiences to the theatres with animated films like 'Boss Baby', 'Despicable Me 3', 'Ferdinand' and 'Coco'. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures With a cult following, Hollywood giants like Disney, Warner Bros, and Sony Pictures brought fans of different franchises like 'Fast and The Furious', the MCU and DCEU in huge numbers, with the success stories including 'Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2', 'Wonder Woman', 'Spiderman Homecoming', 'Thor Ragnarok' and 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle'. 6. Digitization of Content With the growing popularity of Netflix, Hotstar and the launch of Amazon Prime, there was a paradigm shift in content consumption as the same was available at affordable rates right at our fingertips. Furthermore, such content was easily available as internet costs fell drastically thanks to the neck-to-neck price war in the telecom sector. Furthermore, films would release in a window of 4-8 weeks on these digital platforms, which the audience did not mind waiting for. © Netflix With such changing economies in entertainment, the rising popularity of digital platforms and the speed of content consumption, Bollywood lost the battle. With 2018 looking good so far for Bollywood, it looks like it has finally found the much-awaited silver lining. Hope this winning streak continues and Bollywood focuses on rolling out good content much more.

  7. Ed Sheeran. -FILE LONDON: British folk-pop phenomenon Ed Sheeran on Monday was named the best-selling artist in the world in 2017 by the global recorded music industry group IFPI. Sheeran's "A Divide" was the best-selling album of last year and "Shape of You" was the best-selling single, London-based IFPI said in its announcement. Sheeran is the fifth recipient of the Global Recording Artist of the Year Award after One Direction (2013), Taylor Swift (2014), Adele (2015) and Drake (2016). "The success Ed has achieved is astonishing and a testament to his ability to write and perform songs that connect with a truly global fanbase," IFPI chief executive Frances Moore said in a statement. Drake came second in the ranking, followed by Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park and The Chainsmokers. The ranking includes digital and physical album and single sales, as well as audio streaming. Max Lousada, chief executive of Warner Music UK, said Sheeran´s "ability to tell stories and make people feel is what stands him out from the crowd". Sheeran lost out to grime star Stormzy at the Brit Awards in London last week but earlier this month took Best Pop Solo performance at the Grammies in New York for "Shape of You".
  8. GAZA CITY: More than 50 Palestinians died waiting for Israeli visas to travel for medical treatment last year, with only around half of all applications granted, new figures showed Tuesday. A total of 54 Palestinians died awaiting permits in 2017, the World Health Organization said, in what rights activists called an overly bureaucratic system which deprives Palestinians of their right to healthcare. The WHO said it did not have a directly comparable figure for 2016, but Al Mezan Center for Human Rights said it had recorded only a couple per annum in previous years. Israel argues rigorous checks are necessary for security reasons for those coming from the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian enclave ruled by its enemy Hamas. Gazans require Israeli permits to leave the enclave and travel to Jerusalem or the West Bank for treatment which the Palestinian Authority, the internationally recognised Palestinian government, pays for. High-quality medical care for conditions such as cancer is not possible in Gaza, largely due to a shortage of facilities and Israel's restrictions on imports of key medical technology it argues could be seized by Hamas for military purposes. Of more than 25,000 applications to travel for treatment in 2017, only 54 percent were granted in time for their appointments. This was down from 62 percent the year before and 92 percent as recently as 2012, the WHO said. "There is a worrying decline in the approval rate for patients to exit Gaza, with 2017 the lowest rate since WHO began monitoring this in 2008," said Gerald Rockenschaub, head of WHO offices in the Palestinian territories. In a joint statement Tuesday, Al Mezan, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch (HRW), Medical Aid for Palestinians and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel called on Israel to ease restrictions. Omar Shakir, Israel-Palestine head for HRW, said they had seen "wider and wider" use of security justification to reject or delay permits for Palestinians. "It is not based on security but based on a political strategy to isolate Hamas that uses the people of Gaza as collateral in that calculus," he told AFP. No answer Five-year-old Aya Abu Mutlaq, from Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, was born with severe brain deficiencies. Her parents say she died after three appointments in an east Jerusalem hospital were missed. "We repeated the same process three times, but her condition deteriorated and she died 10 days after the date of the (final) appointment," her father Ghaleb told AFP. Israel has fought three wars with Hamas since 2008. Last year a cancer patient was caught smuggling explosives for Hamas through the Erez crossing, allegedly after being duped into taking a container. "Hamas operates every day to take advantage of the civilian measures that the state of Israel promotes," said a statement from COGAT, the Israeli defence ministry body responsible for coordination of such permits. But rights groups argue the knock-on effect is collective punishment of two million people effectively trapped in Gaza. The border with Egypt has also largely been sealed in recent years. Faten Ahmed, a 25-year-old mother of two, died of brain cancer in August 2017. She had once been given a permit to travel to East Jerusalem for treatment but then returned to Gaza as agreed. She applied for a new permit to continue treatment but did not hear back in time for her appointment and eventually died, her mother-in-law Nima told AFP. "We submitted three new requests to cross ... and return to the hospital and complete her series of treatments, but we didn't get any response."
  9. A photo taken on June 11, 2015 shows Hermes Birkin bags at the Maroquinerie de la Tardoire, a Hermes workshop specialized in products made with calfskin, in Montbron, southwestern France - AFP2 PARIS: Luxury goods maker Hermes said Thursday it shrugged off economic, geopolitical and monetary uncertainty to book record sales in 2017, thanks to the strong performance of all of its divisions across all regions. Hermes' said in a statement that revenues grew by 6.7 percent to 5.6 billion euros ($6.9 billion) last year. The group said that growth was driven by "well-balanced contributions across the business lines and all geographical areas" and the development was "particularly healthy as it is mainly based on an increase in volumes." "2017 was a very good year," said chief executive Axel Dumas. "We accelerated growth, which is once again faster than the sector average." Hermes had demonstrated its "solidity year after year," despite the "very unstable and volatile" environment, he said. The group's biggest division, leather goods and saddlery, lifted sales by 7.6 percent to 2.8 billion euros, with CEO Dumas pointing to "very strong demand for our bags." Hermes is scheduled to publish full details of its 2017 results on March 21.
  10. File photo ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's transit trade volume with Afghanistan declined in 2017 while its trade with other countries during the same period increased. Between 2009 and 2012, bilateral trade between the two countries decreased by 46 percent, however, after the signing of the Pak-Afghan Transit Trade agreement in June 2012 and its implementation in the mid of 2014, bilateral trade increased by 66pc to the tune of $2.07, said a commerce ministry official. The official said that traders from both sides of the border were unaware of the transit trade facilities at Chaman and Torkham borders. He added that Pak-Afghan trade volume could be increased to $5.5 billion and employment opportunities could be created directly and indirectly for around 200,000 Pakistanis. The official from the commerce ministry further added that an increase in trade would also support the bridging of the trade deficit. The official said the two countries under the Afghanistan Pakistan Transit Trade Coordination Authority should remove all obstacles hampering trade activities.
  11. Supreme Court of Pakistan. Photo: AFP/File ISLAMABAD: A three-member Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar will hear today several petitions challenging the Elections Act 2017. The Supreme Court has taken up around a dozen petitions against disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif being reelected party president after the passage of the Elections Act. At the last hearing of the case on January 23, senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Khawaja Saad Rafique appeared before the court. During the hearing, the chief justice remarked that Rafique gives very passionate speeches and should speak for himself in court. The chief justice also instructed that after the hearing, there will no media talk outside the court. ?Can?t let my institution be used for political gains,? the chief justice had observed. ?I don?t watch TV but we get the message on whatever is said about us.? The chief justice asserted that no one can pressurise the Supreme Court and the institution itself determines its constitutional limits. Speaking on the occasion, Barrister Farogh Naseem, representing petitioner Sheikh Rasheed, had said that he is pleading disqualification of one person not the annulment of the entire law. SC cannot be pressurised, says Chief Justice Saqib Nisar Supreme Court took up as many as 13 petitions against Nawaz's party presidency after his disqualification in light of Panama case July 28 verdict The chief justice responded by saying how can he a person becoming party president be stopped without suspending the law which has allowed him to do it. Senior PML-N leader Raja Zafarul Haq requested the court to give the government 15 days for the case but the chief justice gave 10 days to the government to prepare the case. Nawaz's disqualification to Elections Act Following Nawaz's disqualification as prime minister in July 2017 in the Panama Papers case, the ruling party managed to amend the Constitution to allow the former premier to retain his chairmanship of the PML-N. As a result, the Elections Act 2017 was passed by Parliament bringing Nawaz back as the party president despite his disqualification from the National Assembly. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid, MNA Jamshaid Dasti, National Party and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), among others, challenged the law for allowing a disqualified parliamentarian to become a party head. The petitions, challenging specific clauses of the recently passed Elections Act 2017, state that Nawaz's appointment as party president is in violation of Clause 5 of the Political Parties Order 2002 and Article 17 of the Constitution.
  12. Dubai airport was the world's busiest for international passengers in 2017 for the fourth year running, with 88.2 million travellers, the United Arab Emirates´ state news agency WAM said Monday DUBAI: Dubai airport was the world's busiest for international passengers in 2017 for the fourth year running, with 88.2 million travellers, the United Arab Emirates´ state news agency WAM said Monday. International traffic at the UAE airport increased by 4.6 million passengers compared to the previous year, WAM said, despite a laptop ban temporarily imposed on its long-haul flights to the United States. A major transit hub situated on transcontinental air routes, Dubai is one of several Gulf-based airports to have experienced prodigious growth in recent years. Dubai airport, the base for UAE carrier Emirates, surpassed London´s Heathrow airport in terms of international passengers in 2014 and has maintained its lead since. The United States in March last year imposed a ban on laptops and tablet computers inside the cabin on inbound flights from several Middle Eastern and North African countries including the United Arab Emirates. But Emirates airline in July announced it had won an exemption from the ban for flights from its Dubai hub after implementing new security measures.
  13. The title of this story should not be surprising to you at all! 'Aadhaar' and all the pros and cons attached to it have been the highlight of the year that just went by. © Twitter So in case you were not aware, the Oxford Hindi dictionary worked hard to select the word of the year and after evaluating so many terms that emerged in 2017, 'Aadhaar' has taken the cake. After reviewing the hundreds of public suggestions received, and consulting the opinions of an advisory panel of language experts, Oxford Dictionaries has chosen its first ever Hindi Word of the Year: aadhaar.#HWOTY https://t.co/wPy7kCo94r — Oxford Dictionaries (@OxfordWords) January 27, 2018 Other words which made it to the list and lost the competition include 'Mitron', 'Gau-Rakshak', 'Notebandi', and 'Vikas'. While the woes of the 'Aadhaar' card have been the premise for so many jokes and memes on Twitter, this time many people took to social media to share their thoughts which include some positive ones, and some of course are downright hilarious. Government of India mandated Oxford to link Aadhar by 31 Jan otherwise their sale will be prohibited. See the impact ðð https://t.co/6Tb9SQ44QO — Amit Jain (@Amit_J) January 28, 2018 And obviously the first thought that comes to your mind when you realise that 'Aadhaar' is the word of the year, also became a joke. It's funny when even Oxford links the "Aadhaar" to the dictionary! #aadhaar #thenewoxfordword — Maitri DAND (@crazy_maitri) January 28, 2018 Finally linking is now spreading globally. Aadhar is linked to oxford dictionary and selected Hindi word of the year — Amit Dubey ð®ð³ (@iAmitDubey_) January 27, 2018 So by making 'aadhar' the word of the year , Oxford dictionary also linked it self from adhar before 31st march and avoided disqualification from online and offline bookstores ! Wise ! pic.twitter.com/3FKVateB2n — sumit (@sumitsaurabh) January 28, 2018 On a serious note, we hope you remember that you need to link your accounts to your Aadhaar card before 31st March!
  14. Ayesha's parents. Photo: Geo News screen grab KASUR: Mother of five-year-old Ayesha, who was kidnapped and killed, says she would have died had she been in Zainab?s father place when Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif was applauding for the police officials at the controversial news conference. ?My wounds became fresh again when they were clapping,? Shazia Asif, Ayesha?s mother, said while speaking on Geo News? show Lekin. ?They say these policemen should be lauded, I [would rather] send curses on them.? The aggrieved mother slammed Shehbaz and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, saying if they cannot provide justice then should ?hold their tongues.? Although the Punjab government claimed of arresting the accused, Imran, Ayesha?s mother said she was not satisfied with it. Shazia said if the authorities concerned want to pacify her then they should bring the culprit in front of her. ?I want him to sit in front of him and see fear in the eyes of the person who held our daughters by their hands taking them away.? While expressing disappointment over her daughter?s incident being brushed under the carpet, Shazia said had Ayesha?s case been solved similar ones would not have taken place. ?I have come on the media for the first time,? Shazia said, adding no one from the government came to console the grieving couple. ?Had they come to me, I would have said today that they gave me hopes albeit false.? According to Ayesha?s father Asif, their daughter went missing from the door of their house on January 7, 2017 and after two days her body was found from the plot near her school. He said that ever since the body was found, they have neither been visited by the police nor were given any DNA report. After the case was reported, Asif said, the police brought two suspects before him whom said they killed Ayesha. ?But when I cross-questioned them about my daughter, they could not answer a single question.? Iman Fatima's parents. Photo: Geo News screen grab The father said they request the chief justice of Pakistan to take notice and cooperate with them Asif added that if Imran if the culprit then he should be publically hanged and pieces of his body should be given to the bereaved families for them to burn it. However, Asif believed, the kidnapping and killing of minors in Kasur was not done by an individual but an entire gang was behind the heinous crime. The same was reiterated by the parents of five-year-old Iman Fatima, who was also abducted and killed. They too believe that a gang was operating behind such incidents. But they were unsure whether the arrested person Imran?s statements were true or government?s claims as they could see loopholes in the investigation. Speaking on the show, Government of Punjab Spokesperson Malik Ahmad Khan said they have constituted a committee and will contact the families. There are some processes which are time-consuming, he added. But the spokesperson also said there was no effective police oversight in the areas, which led to these cases. Malik Ahmad also spoke about the allegations made by Dr Shahid Masood of Imran, the main accused in the Zainab murder case, having dozens of bank accounts. The spokesperson said the anchor?s allegations were damaging the investigation. ?This is imagination and he should not have reported such allegations which detracked the investigation,? Malik Ahmad said.
  15. Transformers: The Last Knight led the pack with nine nominations Monday for the Razzies, Hollywood´s anti-awards celebrating the worst films of 2017. LOS ANGELES: Transformers: The Last Knight led the pack with nine nominations Monday for the Razzies, Hollywood´s anti-awards celebrating the worst films of 2017. The fifth instalment of the Transformers franchise was tapped in the categories of the worst picture; worst remake, rip-off or sequel; worst screenplay and worst screen combo. It also netted nods for worst director (Michael Bay), worst actor (Mark Wahlberg), worst supporting actor (Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins), and worst supporting actress (Laura Haddock). The other worst picture nominees were Baywatch, The Emoji Movie, The Mummy and Fifty Shades Darker -- with the steamy film sequel based on EL James' bestselling "mommy porn" novels just trailing Transformers with eight Razzie nods. Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Russell Crowe, Mel Gibson, Kim Basinger and Susan Sarandon were among stars given the dubious honor of being nominated for a Golden Raspberry. Wahlberg, who was named the world´s highest paid actor in August, was recognised for terrible acting in not just Transformers, but also Daddy's Home 2. The nominations were unveiled in a tongue-in-cheek, Cold War-themed YouTube video titled "How to protect humanity from Razzie toxic waste." "Hazardous waste is generated from many sources, ranging from the industry´s lack of original content, recycled scripts -- usually from a stable of hack writers -- derivative dialogue, phone-in performances and brilliant studio bean counters overseeing the entire process from cradle to a quick grave," the video said. The Razzies were created in 1980 as an antidote to Hollywood´s star-studded back-slapping annual awards season. The "winners" of the Razzies will be announced on March 3, the eve of the Oscars.
  16. Much before Diet Prada — the fashion industry's most savage critic rose to fame — we at MensXP.com reported Shahid Kapoor wearing a blatant copy of a Kris Van Assche suit. Shahid's suit was custom-made by designer Anuj Madan to look exactly like Mr. Assche's. So much so, that the Artistic Director of Dior Homme called the entire incident out through a carefully curated Instagram story. Ouch! This idea of ripping off H-to-T designer outfits is extremely popular among Kitty Aunties, lesser-known designers, wannabe stylists and so-called costume designers and obviously clothing giant, Zara. So what fuels the multi-billion dollar rip-off industry? 1. The ever-growing demand of looking (and dressing) like an A-list celebrity 2. The vast difference in price point between the original and the copy 3. Not enough access to original designers Now, let's address the elephant in the room. Shahid Kapoor wore this aesthetically cut bespoke Khanijo jumpsuit at the HT Style Awards in March 2017. The earthy-hued piece — as noted by one writer — was a true innovation especially when it comes to pushing the envelope of fashion in India. Menswear is often very traditional and dare we say … limiting, but Shahid's Khanijo piece showcased how linen — a very traditional menswear fabric — can lend itself to fashion-forward cuts. © Instagram Fast forward to Karan Wahi who can easily be confused for a slightly more beefed-up, bro-y Shahid Kapoor with a bedroom voice. He also hosts a show on national television, where for his latest appearance he wore a piece strikingly similar to Shahid's. The piece that… at first, glance looks like was designed by Mr. Khanijo was in fact... not. It designed by a Mumbai-based designer called, Aombray who pride at creating custom-made dream outfits that give us a tinkle! It's an unfortunate move for someone like Mr. Wahi who has a crazy following on social media and among pec-loving girls. But we are guessing the stylists at fault here since they are the ones coordinating and sourcing looks for celebrities to wear the events. Or are their assistants at fault? © Instagram Disclaimer: Most stylists borrow outfits for their celebrity clients and return them immediately after the event is over, often accounting for dry-cleaning bills and sweat stains whatsoever. Here's what stands out in Karan Wahi's copy: 1. The fabric is out of place and is cheap looking 2. The buttons are different 3. Shahid's pants are cuffed and Wahi's aren't! Moral of the story? Don't copy. Don't copy from a young designer. Don't make a cheap copy. Simply. Just. Don't. Copy. And if you do, we'll come for you… gently and swiftly!
  17. If you've been tracking Jackie Shroff through the years, you'd know that the man's got a swing to his style. He may be a little 'Bidu' to some, a tad bananas to the others; but that's what makes him special. He was born with sensibilities off the hook. But as much as a few might hate him for them, for Shroff, that's his way of living life; and he has no regrets whatsoever. So, you can imagine, the kind of sh*t he's into: cowboy boots, barn hats, boot-cut jeans, among a million other lesser-worn pieces. Having said that, his recent acquisition that he wore to the Mumbai airport, is a jacket worthy of the biggest movers and shakers across the globe. For beginners, here's the jacket he wore: © Louis Vuitton x Supreme With reading glasses or maybe even not, every human can figure where this jacket belongs — on the runway of Kim Jones' Fall'17 show or on the racks of the world's most prestigious retail stores. Because to blow its trumpet, this jacquard denim trucker jacket is straight off 2017's biggest fashion collab: Louis Vuitton x Supreme. © Louis Vuitton x Supreme Informally, also known as the stuff worn by global style gods, the jacket has already been worn by the likes of Kanye West, Future, Jaden Smith and even Beckham's son Brooklyn. Price of which, comes to a whooping 3 lakh Indian rupees (approx.). © Just Jared © Just Jared © Just Jared Hence, let's give it to Shroff — he's really caught us off guard here. But digesting the fact in an instant now, let's talk of how he's paired the piece, his way. For one, of course there's a neck-wound, knotted bandana involved. And two, he's gone a little monotone here, with bottoms of a slightly darker shade and striped in nature. To top the outfit off, however, he's chosen to wear a three-buttons-open white shirt below (folded rather effortlessly-well on the arms) and a jhola bag, that's easily the masterpiece off any global bohemian rhapsody. © Viral Bhayani Not to forget, he's opted for dad-like kicks to complete the outfit and a timepiece that's a little too loose on the wrist. Plain 'Dada' and 'Bidu' style. Period. © Viral Bhayani For sane men however, looks like, this style sensibility isn't going to appeal as much. So, if you happen to be one of them, we'd suggest you opt for chinos/slim-fit jeans to go with the trucker jacket. And instead of sneakers and a white shirt, switch to a white T-shirt and chelsea boots/another variant of boots instead. A route, that a certain Varun Dhawan would take, you know.
  18. A police cordon reading "Danger" is pictured at a crime scene where unknown assailants gunned down people at a garage in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico-Reuters MEXICO CITY: There were more than 25,000 murders across drug-ravaged Mexico in 2017, the highest annual tally since modern records began, government data showed. Investigators opened 25,339 murder probes last year, up nearly 25 percent from the 2016 tally, interior ministry data released on Saturday showed. It was the highest annual total since the government began counting murders in 1997. Mexico has struggled with years of violence as the government has battled vicious drug cartels that have increasingly splintered into smaller, more bloodthirsty, gangs. Violence is a central issue in July?s presidential election. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto faces an uphill battle to keep his ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party in office. There were 40 percent more murder investigations opened last year compared with 2013, Pena Nieto?s first full year in office. Mexico on Thursday dismissed a claim by U.S. President Donald Trump that it was the most dangerous country in the world.
  19. Photo: File Mahira Khan?s Bollywood debut movie Raees was the most pirated film of 2017, Indian media reported on Thursday. According to a German piracy tracker, more than six million users shared Raees in peer-to-peer networks. ?I would love people to see Raees but not this way. It?s frustrating and all the more disheartening because the pirated prints are now getting HD quality,? the film?s director, Rahul Dholakia, told an Indian news outlet. ?You put so much money and effort and theatrical sales get badly affected.? Dholakia said that the talk of the film being uploaded online had started when it was being released. ?I kept getting calls from the United States. On the day of the release, we brought it down on 175 sites.? A report stated that India accounts for 60pc of the total file sharers of pirated movies online, while Pakistan accounts for 16pc. In the list of most pirated movies, Raees was followed by Hrithik Roshan?s Kaabil, which was released on the same date as Raees. As per the German piracy tracker, around five million watched Kaabil online. The reason why Bollywood films are pirated is lack of unity, director of the film, Sanjay Gupta, told Pinkvilla. He added rampant piracy did not exist in the south as they took a united stand against the problem. ?Bollywood is far from united,? Gupta said.
  20. Shah Rukh Khan, also lovingly known as the King of Romance, has had a career that some can only dream of. However, the Badshah of Bollywood wasn't exactly satisfied with all the good-guy, romantic roles that he usually performed. So, he decided to take up bold and diversified roles in movies which didn't really go down that well with his audience. One such movie was the 2017 release 'Raees'. © Excel Entertainment The film starred Pakistani actress Mahira Khan which was a major reason as to why it garnered widespread attention. © Excel Entertainment And despite getting good reviews by the critics, the film was only regarded as a semi-hit. However, it has now emerged as the most pirated film of 2017. Germany-based company TECXIPIO GmbH compiled the list which is based on the number of file sharers who downloaded and shared the respective movies in P2P (peer to peer) networks. This news reached director Rahul Dholakia who took to his Twitter to ask the producer Ritesh Sidhwani about his thoughts on the same. #Raees most Pirated film of 2017. Now how does one react to this ? @ritesh_sid — rahul dholakia (@rahuldholakia) January 17, 2018 Ritesh reacted to this news positively and with his reply, he got our hopes way up as he hinted towards a sequel. Look at the brighter side the audience we have for the sequel #RaeesReturns — Ritesh Sidhwani (@ritesh_sid) January 17, 2018 Now we know it's a little unclear and of course, this cannot be taken as an official confirmation. But being SRK fans, we obviously can't miss out any news concerning the superstar and would always want more of him on screen. Now let's just wait and see if this indeed turns out to be true. *fingers crossed*

  22. Even though we're 10 days into 2018, the most important year end analysis is here – Pornhub's '2017 Year In Review'. (c) Pornhub In 2017, the users and content partners uploaded over 4 million videos which made up about 5,95,482 hours of content was uploaded to the website, which makes up 24,811 days or 68 years. Yes, 68 years. India featured heavily on this analysis, and honestly, no surprises there. So, let's dive in on this educational journey. 1. India has claimed the third spot when it comes to the traffic on the site. Indians are horny, and now we're getting receipts. 2. Some of the most searched terms of the year were – 'Indian *** Video', 'Indian Homemade', 'Indian Wife', 'Indian Teacher', 'Indian HD', And 'Desi ***'. So, basically Indians search for Indian porn on PornHub a lot. Apparently, terms like these saw a 1000% jump in 2017, and that increase can be attributed to the rise of 4G data services in the last year. (c) Pornhub 3. Actually, about 86% of all the traffic from Indians comes from smartphones only. I think we all have to thank Reliance Jio for this incredible achievement. 4. In India, Sunny Leone managed to maintain her position of the most searched pornstar in the country, for the third year in a row. Moreover, she's also the fifth most searched person on PornHub all over the world. People just really love them some Sunny Leone. 5. The number of female visitors on the site from India increased by 129%! Quite impressively, the jump in India was the highest out of any other country. Also, about 30% of users in India are women. Yay for female empowerment! 6. Now, comes a little less impressive stuff – Indians only spend 8 minutes and 20 seconds on the site per visit, while the average is around 10 minutes. Work on your timing, people, step it up! 7. Some of the top searches and trending searches in India were 'Indian aunty', 'Indian bhabhi devar' and 'Tamil aunty ***'. Honestly, I have no words. (c) Pornhub 8. The average Indian user on Pornhub is 30-years-old, the youngest in the world, whereas the overall average age is 35. Does this count as an achievement? 9. The biggest drop in users in India happened on 12th March – which was Holi. Surprisingly, the site saw 16% less Indians users on Holi. 10. Even though the worldwide average traffic dropped by 37% on New Year's Eve, India only saw a 12% drop. So basically, most of Indians just stayed in, celebrating and bringing in the new year on their own.
  23. Top of the world Pakistan?s bowling sensation Hasan Ali ended 2017 with a bang, holding on to his number one spot in ICC ODI rankings thanks to an impressive tally of 45 ODI wickets during the year. So it doesn?t really come as a surprise when we see him named in ESPNcricinfo?s ODI team of 2017 ? an awe-inspiring group of cricketing behemoths who dominated the field during the bygone year. Batsman Babar Azam, with 872 runs at an intimidating average of 67.07, has also been included in the ODI team of 2017, where he joins a batting lineup comprising the likes of Virat Kohli and Joe Root. Hasan Ali also made it to the website?s T20 team of 2017, where he joins India?s Jasprit Bumrah to make up a fearsome pace attack. No player from Pakistan made it to the Test team of 2017. Indian skipper and World Cup runner-up Mithali Raj and England?s World Cup hero Anya Shrubsole made it to the Women?s team of 2017. The women's XI takes into account performances in both ODIs and T20s.
  24. 'Dangal' has continuously been living up to its name and the movie has been smashing records left and centre ever since its grand release catapulted it to a worldwide success. The movie has turned out to be the biggest blockbuster release in China and the fact that it made more than $300 million soon after its much coveted release there, speaks a lot about the thunderous response it garnered. Another feather has been added in the successful cap of 'Dangal' with the movie now enjoying the position of the No.1 rank on the IMDB charts. © UTV The movie traces the story of Mahavir Phogat and his daughters, Geeta and Babita. The movie stars Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Sanya Malhotra. The fact that a Bollywood movie is roaring in China explains that when a story is told perfectly, it strikes a chord everywhere, regardless of the culture because emotions have no language. Besides China, the movie was a huge hit in many other countries, namely the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, the United Arab Emirates, and Taiwan.
