  1. Born in the locality of Behala in Kolkata, Sourav Chandidas Ganguly has been one of the most successful Indian cricketers, period. His aggressive batting style along with his eventually developed bowling and his relentless methods of leading a team as prestigious as the Men in Blue has left no doubt in the minds of the cricket-mad people of the country and those abroad. However, when 'Dada' decided to take up the role of a 'Special Advisor' to the Ricky Ponting-coached Delhi Capitals ahead of the 2019 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) little did he realise that his secondary role of being the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal might become somewhat of a hurdle of him being actively involved in the biggest cricketing league within India. Concerned about the possibility of 'conflict-of-interest' given the former Indian skipper's dual-role within the cricket fraternity of India, three fans of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ombudsman and Ethics Officer, DK Jain. The trio demanded a convincing justification from the former KKR captain with regards to the move he made in March. © Twitter/@IPL According to the Press Trust of India (PTI) , this is how the cricketer responded: "In my respectful submission there is no direct or indirect interest, compromising roles, commercial conflict, prior relationship or position of influence within the meaning of the BCCI Constitution which may deter my involvement with the Delhi Capitals." Having said that, ever since Ganguly has assumed the role of the 'Special Advisor' to the Delhi-based franchise, no one has been able to articulate what exactly is the legend going to be doing in his new journey with the Capitals. When Dada has first joined the team, Times of India reported that he would be working closely with the head-coach Ricky Poting. And recently when TOI asked the Australian about his relationship with his former rival, Ponting said that the two think in a similar fashion. "We have got very similar ideas and views on the game which has made us work well together. I love working with him." Even then, not even the head-coach himself, could describe Ganguly's role with the team. The closest to what felt like an actual contribution by the Bengali cricketer, according to Poting, was that Ganguly was spending time with all the southpaw batsmen of the team such as Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant, getting them ready for the Eden pitch, but is that it? © Twitter/@IPL What's worse is that not even the official website for the franchise acknowledges him as a member of the team, neither as one of the coaches nor as a staff member. Jeopardising an honourable role, one that of the president of a cricket board of a region, therefore doesn't quite settle in with the lack of recognition Dada is getting in return.
  2. The 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been off to a fiery start. With every match providing ample entertainment, we are witnessing some of the best performances from a bunch of players. Super Sunday's first match between Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) was yet another high-flying yet one-sided affair. Johnny Bairstow joined the elite list of players to score a century in the league. Building a partnership of 185 alongside David Warner for the first wicket, Bairstow showed his batting prowess by scoring 114 off just 56 deliveries, striking 12 fours and seven sixes. Later, the centurion was joined by Warner, who himself went on to score an unbeaten hundred off mere 55 balls. Both the batsmen took the score to an epic 231 in their share of 20 overs. View this post on Instagram Endearing himself to ð®ð³ and Hyderabad with a non stop onslaught ð¥ @jbairstow21, what an outstanding innings this was ð #SRHvRCB A post shared by IPL (@iplt20) on Mar 31, 2019 at 4:47am PDT Building on the magnificent performance of their batsmen, SRH excelled in the bowling department also by restricting the reds to a mere 113 and eventually winning the match by 118 runs. In the process, they registered their biggest ever IPL win. Bairstow later managed to bag the Man of the Match award for his thunderous century and a crucial stumping of Shimron Hetmyer as well.
  3. One of the proven all-rounders in limited-overs cricket, Ravindra Jadeja continued to add value to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during their six-wicket triumph over Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on 26th March. The 30-year-old rattled the stumps to send Keemo Paul packing before finishing with impressive figures of 1-23 against Delhi last night. In the batting department, Chennai didn't need Jadeja's services with the willow as Shane Watson (44) and MS Dhoni (32*) took the visitors home with two balls to spare. © Twitter/IPL Earlier in the opening match, Jadeja made merry on the raging turner at the MA Chidambaram stadium where he finished with figures of 2-15. Apart from taking the wickets of Colin de Grandhomme and Umesh Yadav, Jadeja was also electric on the field, taking two key catches to get rid of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. With three wickets in his kitty so far, Jadeja occupied the third position in the list of leading wicket-takers in the ongoing season. He is only behind his teammates Dwayne Bravo (4 wickets) and Imran Tahir (4 wickets) who currently dons the 'Purple Cap'. Also, the fact that four CSK bowlers - Tahir, Bravo, Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh - currently leads the list of leading wicket-takers in the tournament, goes on to show the bowling prowess of Dhoni-led side which is taking huge strides in their title defence.
  4. The casual fans of the Indian Premier League (IPL) may not be aware of the name, 'Nitish Rana' who enjoyed a supreme 68-run innings in Kolkata Knight Riders' season opening game against Bhuvneshwar Kumar's SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday. However, the left-handed batsman has made quite a name for himself in the first-class cricket circuit and has come to be known as more of a game-winning player for his side much like the former skipper of the Indian cricket team in Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Rana, who hit eight boundaries and three maximums in a heroic run-chase by his KKR last evening, is a Delhi born athlete who made his first-class cricket debut during the 2015-16 season of the Ranji Trophy and ended up being the lead-scorer of the team (557). He also scored a total of 218 runs during the 2015-16 season of Vijay Hazare Trophy and was the second highest run-getter for Delhi. The 2015–16 season of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy has to be the highlight of the cricketer's career (until yesterday) during which he helped a struggling Delhi survive through tough games against Andhra, Baroda and Jharkhand whilst scoring a total of 299 runs in 8 innings at a staggering strike rate of 175.88. With an aggressive batting style and the ability to fill in the bowling lineup as a part-time off-spinner, Rana eventually made it to the roster of Team India A for the 2018-19 Deodar Trophy and the squad for last year's ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup. On Sunday, Rana contributed immensely towards Kolkata's successful 183-run chase while forming a decent partnership with Robin Uthappa (35) only for Andre Russell and Shubman Gill to seal the deal and bring a great start to his side. For his efforts, his fans took to Twitter to praise the 25-year-old: Nitish Rana showing positive character, prevailing his fantastic form , how prudently he hit reverse sweep to Rashid Khan.#KKRvSRH #KKRHaiTaiyaar — amey guthe (@amey_guthe) March 24, 2019 Russell you beauty ð¥ð¥ð¥ð¥ Nitish Rana ð¥ð¥ð¥ Subhman Gill ð¥ð¥ð¥ — A Quantum Dot (@aQuantumDot) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana's cut shot is a thing of beauty.#KKRvSRH — Naresh Singaravelu (@NareshVelu) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana On ð¥ Great batting.#IPL2019 #KKRvSRH — Prince ð®ð³á´°áµË¡Ê°á¶¦ á¶áµáµá¶¦áµáµË¡Ë¢ (@iPrince55) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana >>> Rinku Singh End of debate.#KKRvSRH — Akshay Sharma (@akshaypasu) March 24, 2019
  5. In a wonderful meetup ahead of the first match for Delhi Capitals (DC) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede stadium, Delhi's newly appointed team advisor Sourav Ganguly shared a few moments with Yuvraj Singh. Yuvi meets Dada and it will surely give you goosebumps ð­ððð»#CricketMeriJaan #MIvDC @YUVSTRONG12 @SGanguly99 pic.twitter.com/yPmeaLWUT0 — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 22, 2019 After sharing a couple of laughs, the two legends of the game were parting ways when Dada said: “Have a great season, play like Yuvraj Singh...”. And boy, did Yuvi oblige to the statement just a day later. Now, if there is someone who the Indian cricket fans expect to bounce back after having years of bad run with the game, it has to be the 37-year-old, son of Punjab, Yuvraj Singh. Time and again, Singh has shown his worth as a fighter, a warrior, not only inside the circular, green field but in the biggest race of life when he came triumphant, out of the battle against cancer, which was diagnosed in 2012. Nearly seven years later, last evening, in his first match as a Mumbai Indian, Singh once again turned back the clock and appeared to be the same beast of a man who hit six 6's in an over against England in a group stage match of the first edition of ICC World T20, 12 years ago. In MI's season opener against Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals, Yuvi scored a total of 53 runs in just 35 deliveries, which also included five boundaries and three maximums. Rolling back the clock and HOW! A fifty on his #MI debut. Keep fighting, @YUVSTRONG12 ð#CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #OneFamily #MIvDC pic.twitter.com/Otcjf8wbot — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 24, 2019 Even though Mumbai went down swinging in a losing effort to chase DC's massive total of 213, the 53-run inning has to feel like a personal victory to the Chandigarh-born, who got to raise the bat in celebrating the half-ton for the first time in two years in the IPL. What makes the feat a lot more commendable is the brains that came along with all the brawn in Yuvi's primary game as the member of the MI Paltan. Losing skipper Rohit Sharma and the Proteas wicket-keeper-batsman, Quinton de Kock early in the early overs, the responsibilities on the veteran's shoulders multiplied. However, when the left-handed batsman took to the crease, he looked calm and composed, only to send a couple of deliveries over the boundary with extreme ease, shortly after. “I took my time there. The wickets were falling and I thought if I take a chance early, we (don't) want to end getting close to the game, so I just took my time. I am happy with the way I was hitting the ball,” Yuvraj said, in the post-game press conference. Singh's loyal fans, who have been literally waiting for years to celebrate the return of their beloved “Thalaiva”, finally got the opportunity to do so and they did not disappoint: Form is temporary..

  6. More often than not, the busy travelling schedule of the members of the Indian cricket team does not allow the Men in Blue to stay at home during major festivals, surrounded by their loved ones, their friends and family. A couple of years ago, the captain of the Indian side, Virat Kohli, while sending his wishes for the festival of colours in 2017, he said that his Holi would be spent on the road as the roster was going to Patna for a series. Happy Holi everybody. Have a great day today ðð¼ð. Please make sure no harm is done to the animals on the streets. God Bless all. pic.twitter.com/3a3NbUib0a — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) March 13, 2017 Holi 2019, however, could not have come at a better time. There was a small gap between the tiring ODI series against the visiting and the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the festival fell on such a day that all the cricketers of the Indian squad were at home, happily celebrating the festival of 'good over evil' with their loved ones. "Happy Holi to everyone! Let's celebrate the vibrant hues, the beautiful relationships and the joyous laughter," Virat Kohli wrote in a Tweet. Shikhar Dhawan, who is currently in India preparing for the IPL, shared an emotional post on Instagram. While celebrating the festival with his mother, 'Gabbar' expressed his joy of watching his kids get in on the fun, thousands of miles away, in Australia. View this post on Instagram My festivals brighten up a little extra thanks to these colourful memories. Missing my munchkins a lot! Happy holi from our family to yours. ð #HappyHoli #HoliCelebrations A post shared by Shikhar Dhawan (@shikhardofficial) on Mar 21, 2019 at 1:19am PDT “My festivals brighten up a little extra thanks to these colourful memories. Missing my munchkins a lot,” said the Delhi Capitals skipper. “Happy holi from our family to yours.” Mayank Agarwal, another athlete who had a great start to his international cricketing career in the first days of 2019 in his debut against the Australians on their home-turf, also shared a vibrant photo from yesterday's celebration: Here's wishing everyone a Happy Holi! May you have a colourful year ahead!#HappyHoli pic.twitter.com/S3HLk5cf3u — Mayank Agarwal (@mayankcricket) March 21, 2019 Some of the major franchises of the IPL too sent their best wishes to the world on the joyous occasion: Yeh din hai rangon ka, yeh din hai khushiyon ka! #HappyHoli, Royals family! #HallaBol pic.twitter.com/TCY6oUExkt — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) March 21, 2019 Bina Gabbar ke Holi bhi koi Holi hai? ð#HappyHoli #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/EewQPoc51G — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 21, 2019 Saareyan nu Holi diyan lakh lakh vadaiyaan. ð¨ Here's wishing everyone a very #HappyHoli from the KXIP family. ♥#SaddaPunjab pic.twitter.com/6pPAx5yAcm — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) March 21, 2019 Let the colour for this Holi be ð!#HappyHoli and have a safe one!#KKRHaiTaiyaar pic.twitter.com/CwbsBwmevG — KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) March 21, 2019
  7. Indian Premier League(IPL), one of the most entertaining tournaments in the world, has been on a roll since its arrival in 2008. Not only has it improved the level of cricket but has also been instrumental in discovering new talent from around the world. Players such as Hardik Pandya, Sarfraz Khan and currently the no.1 ranked bowler in the world, Jasprit Bumrah, are few of the many stars who showcased their flair in IPL and later went on to become International heroes. The recent IPL promo follows the mantra of 'Name Chhod, Game Dikha,' meaning putting the game forward will ensure that the name would follow itself. Even this year, there are some immense talents who are just waiting for an opportunity to show the world their powers. Here are some of the new players who got their name on the IPL teams because of their prolific performances in the domestic season: 1. Prabhsimran Singh © Instagram Prabhsimran Singh, a wicket-keeper batsman from Punjab has turned out be a big talking point in this years IPL auction. Being bought for a hefty amount of Rs.4.8 crores by Kings XI Punjab, Prabhsimran is a lump of coal expected to turn into a shiny diamond as the season progresses. Talking of his achievements, the Patiala boy has given quite a performance in the Indian Under-19 because of which he has reached this stage. Inspired by his idol Adam Gilchrist, it would have been surreal for him to represent the same team that of the former Aussie skipper. 2. Prayas Ray Barman © RCB Website Royal Challenger Banglore has always had a knack of entrusting young guns, earlier it was Sarfraz Khan and now its the 16-year-old, Prayas Ray Barman, who they bought for Rs.1.8 crores. The Bengali leggie is all set to make a name for himself in this year's IPL. Making his debut for the senior side this year in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, the teenager has already made a mark in the domestic circuit by picking 11 wickets in 9 games at an economy rate of 4.45. To beat that, another mind-boggling stat of his came on his debut game against Jammu and Kashmir, where he bagged 4 wickets for 20 runs to star in his team's convincing win. 3. Himmat Singh © BCCI Another Delhi boy, Himmat Singh, joins Virat Kohli in the RCB squad. The 22-year old right-handed batsman has been bought for Rs.65 Lakh by the Challengers. Singh is currently one of the most promising batting talents in the country. Coming through the ranks of Delhi's age-group cricket, he has been a leading star for Under-16 and Under-19 teams and is renowned for producing his best during the knockout stages. Currently a part of India's Under-23 side and a regular member of Delhi's senior team, the Delhi lad would be all geared up to take yet another challenge with the likes of Kohli and Ab de Villiers. 4. Shivam Dube © RCB Website Shivam Dube, a well-known name in the Mumbai circuit, is a medium pace all-rounder. Bought for Rs. 5 crores by RCB, Dube somehow seems to be a carbon copy of Sourav Ganguly in terms of style, turning out to be a right-arm bowler but a left-handed batsman. Gaining an edge over his fellow teammates, he gave his reputation a massive uplift in the last one year with some big hitting in the Mumbai T20 League. He has given some outstanding performances in the recent domestic season. One of them was when he hit Pravin Tambe for 5 sixes in an over in the Mumbai T20 league and soon after recreated the moment in a Ranji Trophy match against Baroda's Swapnil Singh, just a day before the auction. 5. Varun Chakravarthy © Facebook Another mysterious spinner from Tamil Nadu, Varun Chakravarthy, has been bagged by Kings XI Punjab for a sum of Rs.8.4 crores. Being an architect-engineer by profession, Varun sets to be a perfect example of a person following his passion no matter at what age. He has almost fulfilled every role on a cricket field, starting off as a wicket-keeper batsman in school, to be a pacer after reconnecting to cricket post his job (which didn't go well as his play was halted by a knee injury), to being a mystery spinner who could bowl over 7 variations. Already being tested and proven at club level, Chakravarthy would surely be one of the top stars in the upcoming IPL season. With all these budding stars on a roll, let's see “Kaun apni game se apna name banata hai”
  8. It's that time of the year again, folks. The 61st Academy Awards, also known as the legendary Oscars, was held and the best in the business showed up in all their glory. While it's hard for men to compete with the glitz and the glamour that the ladies bring to the red carpet, they're not so far behind. From head-to-toe velvet to sequin trains, the red carpet had it all. The event has a black tie dress code, leaving lesser room for experiment. While there were a few classic tuxedos, a few edgier outfits also grabbed the spotlight this year. Here's our list of the 10 best dressed men at the Oscars 2019: 1. Jason Momoa © Getty Images Wearing a pink velvet suit designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi, Jason Momoa looked classy AF. No one does it like Aquaman! 2. Chris Evans © Getty Images Cap wore a light blue velvet dinner jacket by Salvatore Ferragamo to the award show. Who else pulls off blue better than Captain America himself anyway? 3. Chadwick Boseman © Getty Images The Black Panther himself wore a black sequin jacket by Givenchy with a train and Bulgari jewelry. We're team Chadwick forever, just like Wakanda. 4. Billy Porter © Getty Images Actor Billy Porter wore a custom tuxedo gown by Christian Siriano and looked fabulous. It's 2019 and gender fluid clothing is definitely here to stay. 5. Michael B. Jordan © Getty Images Michael B. Jordan looked fine as hell in a midnight blue velvet dinner jacket by Tom Ford. Now that's the 'Creed' we believe in. 6. Paul Rudd © Getty Images Paul Rudd looked downright classy in a blue Canali suit with a bowtie. Never underestimate the power of blue, Ant-Man would agree. 7. Henry Golding © Getty Images The 'Crazy Rich Asians' star showed up in a custom Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo. He opted for a white bowtie instead of a classic black one and made the look understated yet edgy. 8. Nicholas Hoult © Getty Images Nicholas Hoult looks chic in an asymmetric all-black Dior Homme outfit. The striking jacket has asymmetric pleat detailing which is a refreshing change to a classic tuxedo we didn't know we needed. 9. David Oyelowo © Getty Images Jewel tones never did anyone wrong. David Oyelowo rocks an all velvet green tuxedo by Etro at the red carpet and 'be-dazzled' everyone. 10. Bradley Cooper © Getty Images All things aside, a classic tuxedo is a fail-safe red carpet stunner. Bradley Cooper looked dapper in custom Tom Ford tuxedo. We're still in this look's 'Hangover' (excuse the puns please). Congratulations to all the award winners and these men who blessed our eyes with their style!
  9. The 91st Academy Awards got off to a fantastic start, thanks to a memorable performance by the surviving members of the iconic band 'Queen' and Adam Lambert. A rocking performance which included them singing the classic 'We Will Rock You' from 'Bohemian Rhapsody' saw the crowd engage immensely with the aura of their music. The so called 'hostless' Oscars' stage was then taken over by Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph. The trio's 'Not Your Oscar Hosts' opening was received with a huge roar of laughter from the crowd. Moving on, just like every year, this year's 'Biggest Night Of Hollywood' was another memorable affair. From winners to reunions to special moments, here are some highlights from 91st Academy Awards. 1) Making India Proud © BCCL Oscars 2019 proved to be a historic night for India as Guneet Monga's 'Period. End Of Sentence' won 'Best Documentary Short Subject' at the awards. The film based on menstruation was competing with the likes of 'Black Sheep', 'End Game', 'Lifeboat' and 'A Night at the Garden'. 2) Real Life Captain © Twitter/9gag Chris Evans had a real life 'Captain America' moment because of his chivalrous act towards 'Best Supporting Actress' winner Regina King. Evans helped King up the stairs proving him to be the leading candidate for 'Best At Supporting Actors' award. 3) Wayne's World Reunion © Entertainment tonight Mike Myers and Dana Carvey had a reunion (which we're not worthy of) at the Oscars. The duo's coming together reminded people of the iconic friends headbanging violently while singing along a Queen song in the car scene. Mike and Dana came together to introduce 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. 4) 'Wa-kanda' Awards © Bustle After the amazing year that Marvel has had, many people questioned, “Wa-kan-da awards Marvel hasn't won?” It turns out it was the Oscars. Marvel ended its barren run of the prestigious awards by winning not one, not two, but three trophies as 'Black Panther' won awards for 'Best Costume Design', 'Best Production Design' and 'Best Original Score'. 5) Cooper And Gaga's Show What stole the show was Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's intimate performance of their song 'Shallow' from the movie 'A Star Is Born'. We cannot be thankful enough for a performance like that. Shallow also led Lady Gaga to her first ever Oscar in the 'Best Song' category. 6) Brian And Melissa's Parody Brian Tyree Henry and Melissa McCarthy performed a subtle parody by putting on a fashion show when they came out to announce the category for 'Best Costume Design'. McCarthy stepped out in a mash-up of 'The Favourite' and 'Mary Queen of Scots' in bunny rabbit couture, completed with a bunny hand puppet, while Henry rocked a 'Mary Poppins Returns' look with lots of lace and a dress to match. Below is the list of all the winners of the coveted trophy. Best Picture Green Book Best Director Alfonso Cuaron, Roma Best Actor Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody Best Actress Olivia Colman, The Favourite Best Supporting Actor Mahershala Ali, Green Book Best Supporting Actress Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk Best Original Screenplay Green Book Best Adapted Screenplay BlacKkKlansman Best Cinematography Roma Best Film Editing Bohemian Rhapsody Best Sound Mixing Bohemian Rhapsody Best Sound Editing Bohemian Rhapsody (John Warhurst and Nina Hartstone) Best Original Score Black Panther, Ludwig Goransson Best Original Song "Shallow" A Star is Born (written by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, Andrew Wyatt; performed by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga) Best Animated Feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Best Costume Design Black Panther (Ruth E. Carter) Best Visual Effects First Man Best Animated Short Film Bao Best Documentary Feature Free Solo Best Documentary Short Period. End of Sentence.

  10. The Oscars this year was an interesting blend of glamour and glitz with some surprise wins, some well-deserved wins, and some power-packed performances which took our breath away (you're living under a rock if you still haven't watched Lady Gaga perform with Bradley Cooper today on TV). However, since these good looking people always dress to kill, we decided to do our own little round up of the best-dressed and the most gorgeous women, who shined bright like diamonds on the red carpet today. 1. Emilia Clarke- The mother of dragons shone brighter than the Sun as she walked down the red carpet and stole our hearts.

Charlize Theron- Charlize left us gasping for air as she looked like she brought down the whole sky, walking on the red carpet looking like something out of our dreams. © Reuters 6. Jennifer Lopez- JLO has a secret behind that radiance, which we will probably never know about. Shining like a disco ball, she looked like a groovy diva. © Reuters 7. Constance Wu- The 'Crazy Rich Asians' star can make a sunflower look pale with her charm. © Reuters Who do you think owned the red carpet this year, let us know in the comments section.
  11. The Lakmé Fashion Week 2019 saw five days of groundbreaking designs. Here are two designers who tried to incorporate the ethnic Indian identity with the identity of the modern working man and created silhouettes that will work really well for the Summer of 2019. We're talking traditional khadi and prints that go along with it sewn into asymmetrical kurtas, dhotis and more. So, let's take some inspiration from Amrich by Urvashi Kaur and Padmaja, The Good Loom by GoCoop. Padmaja Krishnan's creations uses khadi and linen from Maheshwar-based NGO Gudi Mudi. GoCoop.com, an online marketplace which enables handloom cooperatives and artisans to connect with consumers, presented The Good Loom, a ready-to-wear menswear line of shirts, trousers, stoles and pyjamas. Here are ways you can incorporate a kurta in your everyday wear. 1. Monochrome It A monochrome set looks better than you think it will.

  12. Asa Kazingmei exhibits are always an exciting event filled with unparalleled energy. For the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019, Asa experimented with their signature, 'the leather jacket' and tried to create unconventional but badass looks. Using defined silhouettes and structures, he has created a futuristic themed ensemble called 'Bionic' with space age elements and trinkets. You can even spot bold accessories like the bum bag, face masks, chunky lockets, ripped patches, graffiti scribbled fabrics among other intricate details. The collection is perfect for achieving a rad gangster vibe, which is perfect for a trip with the boys to the mountains. We think that face masks are not only cool but also important today because of the increasing levels of air pollution and Sneha Arora for Asa Kazingmei shows how to style them in the most fierce, gangster way. The show also saw Gurmeet, Nikhil Chinapa and Prathamesh Maulingkar walking the ramp. Take a look at the collection to see how easy it is to achieve a rad gangster vibe. © Lakmé Fashion Week Keep in mind that kohl, dreadlocks and black are your essentials. You start with taking care of these first. However, you can do without dreadlocks if you want to. © Lakmé Fashion Week A leather jacket, patchy ripped jeans and bulky boots add metal to the outfit. © Lakmé Fashion Week Throw on a bunch of trinkets and baggy black joggers, a counter intuitive way to achieve the look. © Lakmé Fashion Week Graffiti doesn't belong to the walls. Wear it on your sleeve with pride, for it is a great medium for self expression. © Lakmé Fashion Week Bumbags work really well with this look. PSA: Never forget the mask. It saves you from the toxic pollutants in the air too and also contributes as a major factor in making you look rad.
  13. The Lakmé Fashion Week 2019 opened with Gaurav Gupta's show titled "(Un)folding" on Tuesday, at the Royal Opera House. It was an interesting comeback for Gaurav to the Mumbai runway after four long years. © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik Gaurav's signature gowns, that are magnificent yet defining power in the truest sense, sparkled the runway. © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik There was also an interesting collaboration with poetess Navkirat Sodhi, who recited her original poetry suspended in the air, while dressed in a (traditionally) long floor-sweeping gown while models strutted on the ramp. With Tabu and Karan Johar as showstoppers, the show really did reach its peak in the end. Tabu wore a powder blue sparkly chikankari-worked gown, © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik while Johar wore a red blazer with silver and black embellishments on the shoulder.

  15. It would not be wrong to say that the saviors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have done an incredible amount of work in the year 2018, thus adding a significant number of new age fans to a saga that has now turned a decade old. via GIPHY Films like 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Black Panther', and 'Deadpool 2' are responsible for grossing almost one-third of the total box office revenue worldwide this year. While these films have turned out to be highly commercial, they have also made the fans go crazy as phase 4, which is also the last phase of the MCU is going to mark its initiation in 2019. Information in bits and pieces is being given to the media so that the storylines could be avoided from getting leaked. Fans are expecting the bigger and larger than life version of their superheroes in the upcoming set of Marvel films. via GIPHY Though we don't really know the certainties of the future team Avengers, we may surely get a major hint in the 2019 release, 'Captain Marvel'. via GIPHY After digging a few sources and a lot of research, we have come up with a high-end scoop about the upcoming Marvel films (releasing in 2019). If you are a die-hard Marvel fan and missed something amidst so many films in production, this post is for you. Read ahead and know about what's coming up from Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. Let us tell you that there is going to be the latest, more evolved versions of the old superhero characters that will be associated with these films: Captain Marvel With 'Captain Marvel', Academy Award winner Brie Larson is getting ready for the release of the most awaited female superhero film of 2019. via GIPHY By playing the lead in the film, which is also the alter ego of cosmic hero Carol Danvers, Brie Larson is making her debut for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's powerful trailer which was released in September has already exceeded our expectations. Let us tell you that Captain Marvel has remained an accomplice to the Avengers, the glimpses of which would also be seen in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame'. The film also stars, Quentin Tarantino's favorite Samuel L. Jackson, actors Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg. Not to be forgotten, 'Enemy at the Gates' star Jude Law is also in the film. via GIPHY The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. From the trailer, one can easily figure out that the film is set in the 90s and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is dealing with amnesia. via GIPHY The protagonist finds it difficult to recall her past and leaves the viewers stunned, amidst an unpredictable dialogue, “I am not what you think I am”. While, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) background monologue explains much about the film's theme, which definitely includes aliens, one looks forward to the film, especially when Captain Marvel is a female at the center of the narrative. We are getting 'Wonder Woman' vibes though! Avengers: Endgame While 'Avengers: Infinity War' was believed to be the biggest Marvel film ever, the audience gave a mixed reaction to the film. Let us tell you that the biggest Marvel film is yet to come and is already in the making. via GIPHY 'Avengers: Endgame' will conclude the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be a follow up to 'Avengers: Infinity War' and is also considered to be closely linked. The film will also be giving the final touch to many plots. via GIPHY The team of 'Avengers 4' is working day and night to take the Avengers game to the next level which also means that one would get to see the best from the MCU through this film. via GIPHY The flick will be releasing on May 3, 2019. The principal cinematography for the film started in 2017. The makers of the movie had earlier named it 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II', however, it was later discarded. 'Endgame' is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Spider-Man: Far From Home Though Spider-Man has always remained one of the favorite characters for Marvel fans, the superhero's popularity might see a major rise due to his inclusion in the upcoming Avengers films. via GIPHY It would not be wrong to say that Spider-Man is here to stay and entertain us for a good number of years. For now, Marvel and Sony have teamed up for a sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which is temporarily being called 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (as per Tom Holland's Instagram post). via GIPHY Let us tell you that the film has been scheduled for the release on July 5, 2019. This would also mark the initiation of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Tom Holland who was also seen in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would play the protagonist in the sequel, it has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal might play the villain. via GIPHY However, we are just not sure as to how Peter Parker would make his return after the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The direction of the film will be handled by Jon Watts who also directed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Dark Phoenix In September this year, 20th Century Fox released the trailer of another 'X-Men' film and named it 'Dark Phoenix'. If we talk about the 2016 film 'X-Men: Apocalypse', it was the young Jean Grey who saved Professor X (James McAvoy) from getting killed at the hands of the Apocalypse, ultimately discovering her superpowers. via GIPHY 'Dark Phoenix' will feature Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as the protagonist and will be a mix of her present and past lives. Though 'Dark Phoenix' is believed to be a forceful attempt to bring twists and turns into the already saturated series, the film seems to be losing its charm even before its release. Reason – The two major characters of the entire 'X-Men' franchise i.e. Logan and Professor X have already died in the 2017 film 'Logan'. 'Dark Phoenix' may only mix things up, as fans have already seen how Jean Grey died years back. via GIPHY Other than Sophie Turner, actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult would also be seen, maybe for the very last time if this film has to be the end of the 'X-Men' franchise. 'Dark Phoenix' is directed by Simon Kinberg and will hit the theatres in June 2019. The New Mutants The 'New Mutants' is one film Marvel and 'X-Men' fans are eagerly looking forward to. As the title suggests, the film explores the horror-superhero genre and displays the story of teenage mutants getting a grip of their superpowers, while being captive at a secret facility. via GIPHY The film-makers have finalized a stunning cast for the film including actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, and Henry Zaga. Earlier, the film was scheduled for April 2018, however, it has now been pushed to August 2, 2019. As per a few reports, certain scenes of the film are now being reshot to add the pinch of horror to it. In fact, major parts of the film are being shot again taking in view of the horror angle. The rating of the film has not been decided yet. 'The New Mutants' is being directed by Josh Boone. via GIPHY It will be interesting to see these teenage mutants getting to understand their powers. Remember, how it happened for the first time with the likes of Logan, Scott, Storm, and Mystique? via GIPHY Got any interesting scoop about these films? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Marvel films!
