  1. The Internet is an absolutely crazy place. It will make you see stuff and believe things you shouldnât. But with its superpower of virality, topped with the invention of great photo editing tools, we often find ourselves looking at viral photos which seem too real. Alas, thatâs the honey trap we tend to fall for every other day. Just like these 5 photos that went viral online because people believed them to be true but actually turned out to be fake. These photos created a lot of buzz around themselves because they were posted on the internet at an opportune moment and exploited an already roaring online trend. From changing the original context to photoshopping images, these have them all. 1. Prince Charles & Kanika KapoorNo wonder Prince Charles....#Corona #KanikaKapoor pic.twitter.com/k44ALoMDfz â Rajan ð®ð³ (@MissdOportunity) March 25, 2020Soon after it was announced that Prince Charles had tested positive for coronavirus, pictures of Prince Charles and Kanika Kapoor, who also tested positive for COVID-19 last week, happily chatting together began doing the rounds online. People on Twitter even began suggesting that this was probably how the Prince of Wales contracted the infection. However, in reality the pictures are from an old event and not recent. 2. âLast Momentâ Picture Of APJ Abdul Kalam © Twitter Soon after former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalamâs sudden demise due to a cardiac arrest in 2015, this image started doing the rounds on multiple online platforms claiming this was the âlast momentâ right before he passed away. However, thatâs false because this picture originally dates back to 2007 when APJ Abdul Kalam accidently slipped on a dais during an award function at the Sangeet Natak Akademi. 3. PM Modi Touching Sonia Gandhiâs Feet © BCCL In April last year, a photo showing PM Modi touching Sonia Gandhiâs feet went viral on social media. The context of the picture claimed that PM Modi was begging Sonia Gandhi to go easy on him following Rahul Gandhiâs attempts to uncover the PMâs âjumlasâ. However, it later turned out that the image was photoshopped from a 2013 picture of PM Modi touching LK Advaniâs feet during a public event. 4. Ranu Mondalâs Scary Makeover Photo © Instagram Ranu Mondal was one of the biggest online sensations of last year, and became an overnight social media celebrity after her melodious rendition of Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai broke the internet. However, following the news of her âmakeoverâ, pictures of Ranu in gaudy makeup began surfacing online. People began spewing hate on the makeup artist for the terrible makeup, but it later turned out that the picture had been edited which made Ranu look as weird as she did. The makeup artist took to her Instagram account to make things clear. 5. Ranbir-Aliaâs Wedding Invite © BCCL In October last year, an invitation card went viral online claiming that it was Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhattâs official wedding invitation for the coupleâs âJanuary 2020â wedding. The invitation details bore the names of Ranbir and Aliaâs parents and claimed that the couple is set to tie the knot on January 22, 2020 at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. However, on closer inspection many discrepancies were noticed and the card was confirmed to be fake. View the full article
  2. Ever since news broke that COVID-19 was a legitimate threat to us, we as a society went somewhat berserk and bought tons and tons of hand sanitisers and masks. Our European brethren went one step further and stockpiled toilet paper, fearing that soon, their supermarkets would run out of some of the basic, day to day commodities. © Reuters So great is this fear and might we add, quite rightly so, that it is becoming difficult for hospitals and health workers to get their hands on surgical masks and sanitisers. In essence, people who need sanitisers and masks to keep the contagion in check, are unable to get the right tools, because of mass hysteria. © Reuters Seeing the chaos that is ensuing from all this, and the fact that we as people are rather ingenious opportunists, there have been some incidents that are simply newsworthy. First, there was the entire episode of a group of people coming together and drinking cow urine, and inhaling the smoke from burnt cow dung, in a bid to âimmuniseâ themselves from the novel coronavirus. © IANS Then there was this incident in Noida, where a factory that made counterfeit hand sanitiser and N95 masks, was busted and shut down. Needless to say, there is genuine confusion all around us. Given how we choose our own âfactsâ now, and how facts do not necessarily mean facts anymore, there are a ton of videos and photos circulating on social media and messaging apps on how to protect yourself from COVID-19. © IANS There are a number of videos on YouTube, WhatsApp, and a number of other platforms which show how we can make our own hand sanitisers, using some basic hospital supplies. Now, weâre sure that they are well-meaning people and were trying to contribute to the effort of saving human lives in their own way. However, a number of medical professionals, people who are actually qualified, would beg to differ. Here, in this video, a reporter from The Telegraph, the digital wing of the daily newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, speaks to Dr Alexander Edwards, an associate professor at the Pharmacy Research Division at the University of Reading. They discuss how, for most hand sanitisers that work on coronavirus and other viral diseases, a specific quantity of ethanol holds the key. © Most Lovely Things The three main solutions that they work with, in the video, include one where they use vodka, one with surgical spirit and one with distilled witch hazel, a type of micellar water. All the three solutions are mixed with aloe vera gel, with the micellar water, being added with a couple of tea tree oil. Dr Edwards says he wouldnât recommend any of the three solutions, given how they do not get the amount of ethanol, or any anti-viral elements right. © iStock In Dr Edwardsâ opinion, vodka or any hard liquor for that matter will have 30 to 45 per cent ethanol, which falls short of the 60 per cent concentrate that most sanitisers use. Add to that the fact that we are diluting the ethanol with aloe vera gel, means that the strength of the ethanol is further depleted, thus rendering it ineffective. © iStock The surgical spirit, with over 90 per cent of ethanol, could have worked. However, it hardens up the skin with prolonged usage, and when mixed with aloe vera gel, gets a murky colour. Furthermore, the resulting solution is very runny and wouldnât stay on the hand long enough for the ethanol to work. Not only is not prone to work, using surgical spirit may prove to be harmful, and he strongly advises against it. © iStock For the herbal solution, Dr Edwards says that he does not have a reason to believe that they will actually do anything, since there has been no study on any of the elements used in making a DIY sanitizer, saying that they have any kind of anti-viral properties. There are a number of other issues that the video does not mention, mainly, because they are very local to us. First of all, we donât want people hoarding up on surgical spirits, even if they get their hands on ones that have 70 per cent ethanol content, mainly because at this moment, we cannot have hospitals running short of any other supplies. Secondly, sanitisers and many of these cleansing products are made in a very clean, and controlled environment, which, would be rather impossible to recreate at our houses. Manufacturers also use very nuanced and highly technical methodologies to make these sanitisers, which, again isnât something that can be replicated with half baked scientific temperament. © iStock This brings us to what we actually should be doing. Dr Edwards points out that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has presented with some very solid ways that should help us contain the deadly virus. © iStock First of all, wash your hands with liquid soap thoroughly, for about 20 seconds at the minimum, when you have access to a washbasin. Secondly, maintain social distancing properly and thoroughly, step out of your houses only if you have to. And even then, try to step out during non-peak hours. In case you donât have access to washbasins, only then use a sanitiser that actually works against COVID-19. © iStock Finally, and this is significantly important, do not panic. Thereâs no need to get all worked up as if the end of the world is upon us. Having said that, taking this threat lightly and not quarantining yourself as and when required will be downright foolish. Take the necessary precautions, and keep an eye out on the WHO, CDC and IMA (Indian Medical Association) websites. View the full article
  3. Aamir Khan, Bollywoodâs very own Mr Perfectionist, is believed to be a true magician when it comes to turning all that he touches into gold. Well, barring Thugs of Hindostan. But this 55-year-old Bollywood veteran has so many good titles to his name, that something like a Thugs of Hindostan doesnât quite succeed to shake our faith in his calibre as an actor. But did you know that there are a handful of superhit blockbuster films that Aamir rejected over the span of his 32-year-old career? We agree you may have thought about it, but wait till you find out about some of the priceless ones our Mr Perfectionist missed out on: 1. Saajan © Eros International Before Sanjay Dutt took on the role of Sagar in this superhit movie, Aamir Khan was approached to star opposite Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit. However, Aamir declined the offer because he didnât like the character. 2. Darr © Yash Raj Films This was perhaps one of the earliest times when the âobsessive loverâ was brought alive on the silver screen in Bollywood. Itâs almost impossible to forget the psychotic Rahul Mehra and his âK..K..K...Kiranâ. But reportedly, Yash Chopra had first offered this iconic role to Aamir, who declined it because he wasnât sure about playing a villain so early on in his career. 3. Hum Aapke Hain Koun © Rajshri Productions A Rajshri Productions classic, this one really added a substantial fan following to Salmanâs Bollywood journey. But Premâs role was first offered to Aamir, who ended up rejecting the role because he didnât find the script meaty enough. 4. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge © Yash Raj Films Weâre so sure this must have hurt Aamir a whole lot. This Aditya Chopra directorial debut was first offered to Aamir who declined it. Later Salman also rejected the film, which was finally taken up by Shah Rukh Khan and boy, did it change SRKâs career graph or what! 5. Mohabbatein © Yash Raj Films This is yet another Aditya Chopra directorial that Aamir declined, and we think he shouldnât have. It was after Aamirâs rejection that SRK was roped in to play the âlove guruâ Raj Aryan Malhotra. 6. Swades © UTV Motion Pictures Having worked with Aamir in mega-blockbuster Lagaan, director Ashutosh Gowariker wanted to cast Aamir in Swades too. But Aamir wasnât convinced about the story and therefore rejected it. And as we know today, Aamirâs loss was SRKâs gain. 7. Bajrangi Bhaijaan © Salman Khan Films Reportedly, the makers of this 2015 blockbuster had first offered the lead role to Aamir who suggested a few changes in the script which were rejected by the director. So, Aamir then suggested that Salman be approached for the role instead. View the full article
  4. Coronavirus is the new scare in the world which has taken over every major event in the world. Be it the Olympics, the Euro Cup, and now even the National Basketball Association (NBA) has come under the radar of the deadly virus. However, one of the players from the league, Rudy Gobert has been diagnosed with the now-pandemic disease. The Utah Jazz centre was found to be tested positive Thursday morning after the match between the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder was cancelled. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@nbadab_) Ironically, Gobert took the virus a bit too lightly a couple of days before the test when after a press conference, he jokingly touched microphones and other audio devices which were kept in front of him as if he was going to give the reporters and other journalists the highly contagious disease. Well, based on his result, his immature prank might just have become a reality and those poor journalists might also be infected. Ever since Gobertâs reports went public, the entire Jazz roster has been kept in quarantine and their opponents for the day, the OKC Thunder, led by Chris Paul are also put under the microscope. Before tipoff, CP3 reportedly went over to the Jazz bench and asked "What's wrong with Rudy?â They all told him to get away. All the players are now quarantined in their locker rooms and are being tested for the coronavirus, per @royceyoung pic.twitter.com/eQ5x16l1iu â Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) March 12, 2020 After Gobert, the NBA, as a league, did not take too long to officially announce the suspension of the entire season after having contemplated carrying our regular-season games behind closed doors and banning fans from entering the stadiums. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@nbadab_) âThe NBA announced that a player on the Utah Jazz has preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19. The test result was reported shortly prior to the tip-off of tonightâs game between the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. At that time, tonightâs game was canceled. The affected player was not in the arena,â read the press release issued by the league. âThe NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of tonightâs schedule of games until further notice. The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.â Despite the childish joke which put the lives of numerous reporters at risk, hereâs hoping Rudy speedy recovery and wish the best of health to all those who could have come in contact with the virus through him.

  5. There's not been so much build-up for a Bollywood movie in a long time as much as there has been for Brahmastra. We know almost nothing about the movie, but there's so much hype that people are already eager for its release, even though that's months away. © Dharma Productions Actually, it's understandable, I mean, just look at the star-cast! Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt - that alone would be enough to make a hit movie and on top of that, the idea of a trilogy is exciting in itself. [More Pictures] Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt on sets of #BrahmÄstra. pic.twitter.com/50O4cRxwqi â Ranbir Kapoor Universe (@RanbirKUniverse) June 4, 2019 Now, Big B has increased the anticipation even more by sharing a few pictures from the set, with a great caption.

  6. Ever since Ishaan Khatter made his entry into Bollywood with Dhadak, all eyes have been on his acting chops. But that's not just it. A quick look at his sartorial choices and you would also see how gutsy and stylish this young lad is. He is Shahid Kapoor's younger brother, and just like him, even Ishaan is a sneakerhead who has sported some zany sneakers from his collection. View this post on InstagramBaby boy I always got your back.A post shared by (@shahidkapoor) Recently, the actor who is set to star in Khaali Peeli with Ananya Panday was spotted in a casual, relaxed outfit and the most badass pair of kicks we have seen in a while. This pair, which looks like it would burn a big hole in your pocket, is actually actually quite affordable. © Viral Bhayani But, before we go any further, what's also noteworthy is his ensemble that legit makes it possible for men to take notes for their style upgrade. © Viral Bhayani The joggers in question are gaining all the style points, specifically because they are not a usual pair that we see. Add to that the well-fitted salmon pink t-shirt is arguably the best way to elevate a regular day out attire. © Nike As far his sneakers go, these are certainly quite quirky. He is wearing NIKE MEN AIR MAX UPTEMPO 95. This iteration features a white leather upper with black nubuck overlays. The blue accents added to these sneakers actually make it look quite royal. That with swoosh logo and pull tabs adds to the retro appeal of these sneakers. © Viral Bhayani These sneakers are originally priced at $160 but you can find great deals currently and get them under $95 which sums to Rs 6, 900. Not bad, right? © Viral Bhayani While he has coupled his sartorial choices in a pleasing manner, what we also took notice of were his accessories. The oversized beanie and opaque rounded glasses added a dose of insouciance to his overall look. All in all, Ishaan took top points for casual coolness and undoubtedly, we stan for his style. Keep it up! View the full article
  7. If there's one thing that we've learnt from Kartik Aaryan, it is that he knows how to amplify any basic outfit and turn it around 180 degrees. Whether it's a baggy sweater or double-breasted suit, he never fails to inspire us with his great style wardrobe. © Viral Bhayani The resurgence of oversized silhouettes went really big and the exaggerated nonchalance it has, is truly the key to ace the street style aesthetics. Coming to Kartik's outfit, he is seen wearing a loose, lilac blazer layered over a satin grey shirt and pants. The unlikely shade of this overall ensemble is what makes for an outstanding choice. While it may not be as elegant and sharp as a tuxedo, the boxy silhouette is kinda cool to make a statement. View the full article
  8. Sometimes, entertainment comes at a great cost, things get stuck in places where they shouldn't get stuck, but that's showbiz baby. A teenager from Ontario, Canada probably learned the hard way that putting random things in your mouth is not as safe as it may seem. (This is not meant to be dirty, please get your head out of the gutter!) Basically, in order to keep her little cousin entertained, Mollie O'Brien decided to try and fit an entire harmonica in her mouth. And, of course, it did not end well, there's literally no other way it would've ended. The poor girl had an entire musical instrument stuck inside her mouth. That's hilarious, tbh, but also sounds so painful. My mouth hurts just thinking about it. Guess what was the first thing she did? Go to her patents? Go to a doctor? Nope, don't forget she's a teenager. She made a TikTok documenting her adventure. Using the 'just did a bad thing' meme format, she shared the thing she regretted doing. The best part? When she breathed, you can actually hear the harmonica playing, that's as bizarre as it can get. @mollieobrien going to cheo to get my harmonica removed... #foryou #fyp #foryoupage #dissapointment #failure #mymomdoesntloveme #idiot ⬠I just did a bad thing bill wurtz - cameron.tr Talking to a Buzzfeed, she said, "Every time I breathed heavily out of panic, it made a noise. After 30 minutes it hurt, but then it was kinda numb." At least, she only suffered for half an hour. © TikTok/Mollie O'Brien She also had the same reaction after realizing that she couldn't get the harmonica out that all of us have whenever we're stuck in a sticky situation - "****, my mom will kill me now." Well, at least her mom wasn't mad, she was just "shocked she raised such a weird kid." © TikTok/Mollie O'Brien She had to then rush to the hospital, of course, and there, a dentist used a mechanism to hold her mouth open and remove it. The dentist had just one thing to say to her - "He said, 'Let's not do this again, OK dear?'" Fair enough. She managed to safely get it out and also went viral on TikTok, so not bad I would say.

  9. If you have planned on shelling out on some extra money on grooming products, you might as well get the right one that suits your skin type. When it comes to buying these products, men usually skip this bit and end up getting random drugstore products that can do long-term damage to the skin. The manufacturers of various brands promise some astounding results. Now, when the product doesn't work, it can be downright infuriating. If this is an issue that you have been facing for the longest time, here's you can invest in the right one and compare your options for better-looking skin. 1. Beware Of Artificial Scents © istock The very first thing that you might want to consider before buying a product is to take a good look at its ingredients. The main issue is that a lot of items have scents or fillers in them that can irritate your skin. Many of them can also end up causing allergic reactions. So opt for products that have organic ingredients like essential oils as they are best suited for any skin type, 2. Harsh Detergents © istock The best of face washes can also end up ruining your skin's texture and strip you away of all the natural oil. One of the top reasons for the same is harsh detergents that are infused in these products. Stick to mild cleansers instead that are made with olive oil, activated charcoal or have a coconut oil base. Also, opt for products that have zero sulfates and are paraben-free. 3. Say No To Products With Alcohol © istock Alcohol and menthol are two evil skin irritating ingredients that you do not want in your routine. The aftershave you use is a common example of the same. Instead of using that, you can use a moisturiser to soothe your skin. Better yet, use aloe vera gel. It is handy as well as anti-septic that works well on sensitive skin. 4. Be Consistent © istock A skincare routine is like a test and you need to follow it regularly to understand if it's working or not. Some products like a face wash or sunscreen have to be used every day while exfoliants can be used twice a week. Besides a regular routine, you also need to know the right order in which you have to use all your grooming products. Once you have mastered the art, these skin problems will hardly exist.

  10. Imagine you are getting married to the love of your life and on your wedding day, you find out that she cheated on you with your best friend. Or that your husband ran away with your girl friend. While even the mere thought of it will pain a lot, nothing can come even remotely close to the pain that imam from Uganda is going through. Two weeks into his marriage, this imam found out that his wife was actually a...man. Honestly, we don't even know whether it counts as cheating or not, but it's outright bizarre that it took him two weeks to figure that out. We have so many questions right now, but more than that we feel so bad for this guy who not only lost a wife but also got suspended from his duties for absolutely no fault of his. © Twitter 27-year-old Sheikh Mohammed Mutumba, who was a cleric at the Kyampisi Masjid Noor mosque, got married to a woman called Swabullah Nabukeera in a traditional Islamic ceremony, in December. All was going well, until two weeks later his wife was caught stealing their neighbour's TV and clothes. When the cops were called and a female officer started searching her, that's when he got caught and the guy confessed that his real name is Richard Tumushabe. Reportedly, he married the imam to steal his money. Now I am sure you're wondering how did the imam never find out about his wife's 'obvious' secret? Well, according to him, he and his wife never had any sexual relationship because his wife said she was menstruating. What's more, his wife also "refused to undress while they slept". The guy even fooled the imam's friends and relatives since she usually wore a hijab, and "had a sweet soft voice and walked like a woman". Poor Mutumba never realised he got married to a man, he is now traumatised and needs counselling and he also got suspended till the matter is getting investigated. The world truly is unfair.

  11. We sometimes find many relationship habits unhealthy and try to quit it, though some habits just make our lives and relationships easier. Being in a toxic relationship is not a good idea but falsely accusing your relationship as being toxic is also a dumb thing to do. We are not asking you to stay in a relationship if you're unhappy but at times we need to find the thin line between toxic and 'tolerable'. So, here is a list of five habits in a relationship that we think are toxic but will actually help your relationship go a long way- 1. Letting Go Of Conflicts At Times © Dharma Productions People focus on resolving every argument when in a relationship but at times it's healthier to let go of some fights. Some conflicts are un-resolvable and fighting upon them are only going to make things worse. So, just keep in mind that some battles are not worth fighting for and save your relationship by avoiding conflicts. 2. Feeling Attracted To Other People © Dharma Productions We want to be attracted to our partner all the time but that's biologically not possible. You need to accept that you might feel attracted to other people and that's okay. It doesn't mean that you're falling out of love with your partner but just admire someone else apart from them for their qualities. Acting upon our attraction or liking is in our hand and our actions are responsible for making or breaking a relationship, as attractions are mostly temporary and love is real. 3. Spending Time Apart © Dharma Productions It's always better to do what you want to do rather than focusing on your partner all the time. Valuing your relationship is important but moving ahead in your life and fulfilling your dreams is equally important. It's important to give space in a relationship as it only makes the bond stronger. Spending time apart also makes you regain the lost spark in a relationship. 4. Accepting Each Other's Flaws © Dharma Productions No one is perfect and as soon as we accept each other's flaws the better the relationship is going to be. You need to like and accept each other for who they are then decide for yourself if you really want to be with them. Somewhere or the other we have to settle as no human being is perfect. 5. Unintentionally Hurting Each Other © Dharma Productions When in a relationship, we do things at times that the other person might not like or get hurt due to it. Sometimes they get hurt and sometimes we get hurt. The bottomline is to not pretend that you're happy and express if you're hurt as it is okay to be hurt. Your honest opinion is only going to make things easier for both of you. View the full article
  12. It was nothing short of a fairytale coming true when Meghan Markle got married to Prince Harry. Almost everyone across the globe seemed to be talking only about them. Fast forward to the present time and people are still talking about them. The world went into a mini shock when the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle announced that they are stepping down from their roles as "senior royals". Their long note on social media, Prince Harry's friends sharing "anecdotes" about what could have possibly led to the exit and Madame Tussauds London moving their wax figures away from the royal family further fuelled the fire around what people are calling "Megxit". View this post on Instagram “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on Jan 8, 2020 at 10:33am PST How often do you see a man going against his family and leaving them behind to be with and protect his true love? The last time we saw it was in 2001 when Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was released starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. And that's exactly what people on social media were reminded of.

  13. Kumail Nanjiani knows how to break the internet. From some really zany and off the cuff comments and jokes to some really colourful interviews, the man knows how to keep an audience at the edge of their seat. © Reuters When he posted a few photographs after getting ripped as a lumberjack, the internet went berserk. So much so, that PornHub acknowledged his physique, in the most unique way possible. © Instagram/kumailn Now, you might imagine that Kumail had to work out like a beast and practically had to live in the gym to get a physique as chiselled as that one. However, his trainer, Grant Roberts of Granite Gym in Beverly Hills, California, revealed, that his intensive workout routine was just a part of his transformation. Notably, Roberts himself has acted in a number of films, including the 2009 sports drama, Invictus, which starred Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. © Instagram/grantrobertsfit In a recent interview with a major US-based fitness magazine, Roberts revealed that although Nanjiani did work out like a mad man and went full gung ho on whatever was asked of him, his intensive workout regime was just a part of it. It seems the devil's in the details. Here's what exactly Kumail had to go through to get in shape for his role in Marvel's The Eternals. © Instagram/kumailn An Individualised Fitness Plan © Instagram/kumailn First and foremost, it was important to formulate a customised fitness regime that would work for Kumail in a manner that suited him the best. The thing is, most people forget that what works for someone else, might not work at all for them. In such a case, a personalised plan, that has been developed by expert nutritionists, fitness trainers and gym trainers becomes a must. Says Roberts, “With Kumail, the main goal was increasing muscular size, dropping excess body fat and creating total body symmetry, so keeping his composition and lifestyle in mind, we came up with a plan that would work around him.” Nutrition © iStock Robert says that apart from working out 4-5 days a week, Kumail had to tweak his diet a number of times. “Initially, the focus was on protein, water, healthy fast like omega 3and just the right amount of carbs. However, with time, he had to make some finer adjustments to make him look more vascularly fit, without dropping muscle,” he continues. Recovery © Instagram/emilyvgordon Notice how in the previous point we wrote that Kumail worked out for 4-5 days a week? Well, that's because your days for rest, or days where you let your body recover, are important. Says Roberts, “Whether you're working out for 15-20 mins, or attending two sessions a day, intense work out routines are exhausting, can be painful, and drains you completely.” On his days for recovery, Kumail would often go for massages and stretching exercises, so that his muscles wouldn't atrophy. Disciplining The Mind © iStock The first actual step in one's journey towards a fitter self is making the decision, and setting reasonable plans and achievable goals. Says Roberts, “Intelligent program design includes achievable landmarks and checkpoints while leaving room for modifications, whether results are ahead or behind schedule.” Maintenance © Instagram/kumailn Finally, there is the manner in which you maintain yourself after you've got the physique that you wanted. It is alarmingly easy to let things go once you've hit your desired inches, or hit a certain weight. However, what follows next is the actual task. Says Roberts, “Maintenance requires working out hard enough to keep everything from atrophying and consuming a maintenance diet of just the right amount of essential water, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals while keeping non-essential carbohydrates in check.” Now, it may not be as intense and seemingly rigid as the process of whipping yourself in shape, but because it is a constant endeavour, things become challenging. Considering the people that Kumail would be cast opposite in The Eternals, which includes the likes of Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek & Kit Harington among other stalwarts, being funny in an action film, while it may have its moment, won't simply cut it. No wonder, Kumail turned towards the professionals for help. View the full article
  14. Last week, when Ranveer Singh posted the 'entertainer for hire' caption, we knew it was a joke. View this post on Instagram Shaadi Season is here! Entertainer for Hire. ðºð¿ Available for events, wedding, budday party, mundan ð A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Oct 30, 2019 at 7:31am PDT Even Deepika Padukone played along and gave everyone some more relationship goals. People were actually going crazy about Ranveer being hilarious and then Deepika being her witty best. © Twitter But, looks like it wasn't a joke after all. Recently, Ranveer was in Delhi and the only thing he did while he was in the city was go to a wedding. Videos of him dancing and basically performing at the said wedding are everywhere online and it honestly looks like someone hired him to be the 'entertainer'. Scroll to see all the videos.

  15. We've already heard enough about the PlayStation 5, but Microsoft is also working on a next-gen console. Some details about Xbox Scarlett were revealed at E3 this year and one of the most important features Microsoft claimed was the ability to push 120 frames per second on the console. Currently, consoles support 60fps simply because the hardware on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is not capable of delivering PC level performance. However, Microsoft is now looking to prioritise high frame rates on the next Xbox, thanks to a massive upgrade in the CPU department. © Microsoft We got to know more about the CPU on Xbox Scarlett as Aaron Greenberg discussed details in an interview with the Xbox Official Magazine. He claimed that the CPU upgrade will let developers make no compromises on frame rates. “But, with the next-gen, I think you'll see a big upgrade in the CPU department because we really want to make sure that you don't have any compromises with the framerates. Yes, we can do 4K, but we can also do 120 frames per second. So I think that type of capability will be something that people don't see today,” Greenberg said. We don't think Greenberg meant that the Xbox Scarlett will be able to push 120fps at 4K resolution. We feel it's an “either-or situation” as even the top-of-the-line GPU i.e. RTX 2080 Ti with the best rig is not capable of doing that right now. It is possible that gamers will be able to choose whether to play a game in 4K resolution or prefer the higher frame rate for certain types of games. Higher frame rates give gamers the added benefit in online competitive games as it reduces the response times and is also smoother to play. Higher frame rates can provide a valuable edge to competitive gamers, while people who like single-player games can always opt for the 4K resolution for better graphics and textures. © Microsoft How Microsoft plans to implement these features remains to be seen. However, if the console is able to push true 120fps, you can expect it to be the most powerful console ever made for competitive gaming. Do you prefer a higher resolution when gaming or do you prefer the higher frame rates for online games? Let us know in the comments what you think about the next console's support for 120fps.

  16. Adam Savage, the co-host of Mythbusters has launched a new show called “Savage Builds” and in the first episode, he built a real-life Iron Man suit that can fly. Savage and his team used a 3D printer to build the Iron Man armour and it can actually fly. The major challenge in making this suit was using 3D printers to make the armour light enough so that it could fly. © YouTube As for the flying bit, Savage worked with jet pack company Gravity and its owner, Richard Browning, to build jetpack that was capable of flight. The Iron Man Mark II armour from the movies is made entirely out of titanium. © Youtube/Cnet "It sounds like hyperbole, but I swear… if Tony Stark was not fictional and he was building an Iron Man suit right now, this is precisely how he would do it and this is the exact technology he'd be using," Savage told CNET. © YouTube The show “Savage Builds” is all about Savage trying to build things which involved the entire process of trials, tribulations, collaboration and even failures. The show will run with 8 episodes and in one of the episodes, Savage will also build the British army's Great Panjandrum. It's basically a car that has been outfitted with a massive, rocket-propelled, explosive-laden cart designed by the British military during World War II.

  17. What happens when you take meat-loving, fruit and vegetable-hating, fallacy-advocating men and design a diet for them? The Carnivore Diet is born. The introduction in itself would come across as a strong one, and you would agree with it once you know more about this new emerging diet that has been doing the rounds of social media galore recently. © Getty Images Popularized by Shawn Barker, a mid-50s strong and ripped world indoor rowing record-holder and an ex-MD, the carnivore diet is a dietary pattern that promotes only eating animal products. Mainly meat for all your meals. And it strongly advocates against eating any fruits and vegetables. It's not known if this was started as a strong contention to the vegan diet or an extreme extension of the ketogenic diet, but it sure as hell makes some questionable claims and promises that would fall flat in the face of science and logic. Here are some of the claims propagated by the Carnivore Diet: 1. Fruits & Vegetables Are Actually BAD For You © Getty Images Yes, you read this right. The carnivore diet goes ahead and makes claims on the lines of fruit and vegetable consumption being detrimental for your health. Even a fifth-grader can tell you the benefits of it, namely being fibre intake, nutrient intake, etc., and the carnivore diet makes an absurd claim against the same. 2. You Should ONLY Eat Animal Products © Getty Images Yup, just animal products and consume meat, primarily, for all your meals. Though the ketogenic diet also suggests eating mainly fats and protein, there are still some carbohydrates in your diet like green veggies. The carnivore diet, on the other hand, is virtually ZERO carbohydrates. 3. Calories Do Not Count Another absurd claim by this diet is that calories DO NOT count. As you are technically cutting out an entire food group, rather limiting yourself to just one food group in this diet, stating that it overcomes the law of thermodynamics is absurd. Calorie counting may NOT be necessary when you have such a restrictive dietary pattern but stating they do not matter at all is downright dubious. A sample carnivore diet and food options permissible in it looks like the following: • Food Options: Meat, fish (fattier the better), eggs, dairy (though most do not consume any due to carbs), bone marrow, fatty meat products, salt and pepper. Basically, anything that walks, crawls, flies, swims, or has had parents (barring humans, of course). • Breakfast: Coffee, scrambled eggs and bacon • Lunch: Steak or chicken liver • Snack: Bone broth or cheese • Dinner: Steak or hamburger patty or fatty fish For me, this diet would go down as an extremely misleading fad due to the following reasons: 1. Science Claims Otherwise Saying that fruits and vegetables are harmful is outright misleading. The fallacy is outright stupid in this case. You will hardly ever find any study showing unfavourable effects of fruit and vegetable consumption on human health. A study by Boeing et. al. concluded that regular fruit and veggie consumption has protective effects against coronary heart disease, hypertension, and stroke. 2. It Is Expensive Animal products all day long, all life? A diet has to be economically feasible as well in the long-term. An all-animal diet goes far off the reach for a majority of the population in terms of the cost. © Getty Images 3. Unsustainable Having an exclusive diet is hardly sustainable, be it any kind of a diet. If you think that you can follow an all-animal diet (I still think it is a bad idea) all your life, go ahead. For almost 99% of the population, this may not be the case. 4. It May Be Unhealthy Eating just meat all-day long adding lard and butter on top of it and consuming it day-in and day-out. You may as well put up a big fancy board inviting a host of cardiovascular diseases and health problems. I'd say that the carnivore diet is just a new addition to the host of pre-existing fad diets and I am sure many people would still fall for it. Like I have mentioned multiple times, it is yet another fad that is far from healthy. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  18. Labelled as one of the most unpredictable sides in the tournament, West Indies looked at their menacing best during a seven-wicket triumph over Pakistan in their ICC World Cup opener. The Windies pace attack turned out to be the nemesis for the Pakistani batsmen who were hurried on by the pace and bounce of the opposition bowlers. Amongst the multiple pace options in their armoury, Sheldon Cottrell is arguably the one that stands out. The left-arm seamer can not only generate serious pace, but his searing bouncers and control on length make him more lethal. But, Cottrell isn't just famous for his bowling capabilities, in fact, if anyone has seen this man bowl, they'd have found his unique and animated wicket celebration just too hard to go unnoticed.

  19. It's Computex week and there have been some crazy concept machines that were unveiled during the show and we came across a very unique device. HP unveiled a VR gaming backpack that basically runs RTX 2080 and comes with a VR headset. The entire setup where all the computing and processing takes place is strapped on your back while you can enjoy VR games anywhere. © HP The concept basically comes from VR gamers who complain that they are often confined in their room or a specific area. HP has come with a solution who want to enjoy VR games and not be confined to an area by putting everything that powers a gaming machine in a backpack-like-device. HP has launched something similar for their Omen gaming computers however this version comes with all the bells and whistles of a desktop gaming PC. © HP The VR backpack comes with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU and can also be used via a display port for high-res VR gameplay. Compared to the previous model, HP says that the new VR backpack has 30 percent better performance and 25 percent faster graphics. In the case of wanting it to use as a traditional desktop, it can be plugged into a dock. It would look something like this: © HP Other specifications include 16GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. The backpack can only last for 1-hour on battery life which is more than enough for VR gaming. Naturally, the HP VR backpack doesn't come cheap as it will sell for $3,300 (approx Rs 2,30,000). With the backpack, you get a battery charger, desktop dock, two batteries and a harness. The VR backpack is expected to be available sometime this summer.
  20. When your character has always been the good guy no matter what (even when you have to execute people who literally murdered you), finding out that you have to kill that one person you love has to be a hard and emotional thing. Poor Kit Harington was so distraught, so much in disbelief when he learned that Jon Snow is the one who'll have to stop the 'mad queen' who is also his aunt and the person he loves. (He's also a Targaryen - not that it mattered - so incest is okay I guess) A new documentary called 'The Last Watch' which basically shows what was happening behind-the-scenes while the filming and production of Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' was taking place is out. It shows all the actors preparing and shooting for the final season, and learning the ending and their character's fate. The documentary also shows the table read for the final episode and well, Kit's real reaction to finding out Jon kills Dany and well, as expected, it's the same as our reaction to that scene. He's so emotional, almost crying, that people are calling it better than the actual final scene. Look at it yourself. Poor Kit is having a proper existential crisis. And, compare to the episode. The best part is Emilia Clarke's reaction. How are her eyebrows like that? I mean, people aren't exaggerating that much. Kit looks like he went through so many emotions in just a few seconds. Obviously Sophie knew. The stages of Jon finding out he was the one to kill Dany. Note: Kit Harington did not read his script ahead of time, so this is him finding out for real. Sophie Turner obviously did, because LOOK AT THAT KNOWING SMIRK. Sansa knows what's up. pic.twitter.com/sVjKUi9Ye6 — Alex Bruce-Smith (@alexbrucesmith) May 27, 2019 I know, right?

  21. Pre-workout supplements are always a hot topic to discuss. Supplement manufacturers know this quite well and are thus quite responsive towards the surge in the demand that has recently caught up. You can find a new pre-workout supplement on the shelves of the supplement stores, whenever you visit the market. However, not all of them work and are as effective as they claim to be. Here is the list of pre-workout supplements that are really effective and are backed up by solid research: 1. Creatine Monohydrate © Getty Images One of the most researched supplements out there, Creatine Monohydrate has been tested for long term safety as well. If you train for mass and strength, Creatine Monohydrate is the supplement that you should be consuming. Research over the decades has shown its efficiency in increasing lean muscle mass and strength without any major side effects. Creatine serves the crucial role in your energy system by increasing your ATP production. Consequently, you will be able to lift more weight and build more muscles. Though the timing is not that relevant when it comes to consumption of creatine monohydrate, yet it's a good option to have it as your pre-workout.' 2. Caffeine © Getty Images Caffeine is a natural stimulant which is also found in coffee. It is extensively used in almost all the blend pre-workout supplements available in the market. Caffeine intake before a workout can improve your exercise performance by increasing your mental alertness and increase in power output. Since it is a stimulant, it works quickly once it enters your bloodstream. In less than 30 minutes of consuming caffeine, you will start feeling more energetic. It helps you to set yourself in that workout mode even if you were earlier feeling tired. If you work out in the morning and find it difficult to push yourself to the gym, caffeine has to be your supplement. Though stimulants work differently on different individuals, generally a preferred dose would be around 3-6mg per kg of body weight. 3. Beta Alanine © Getty Images Beta-Alanine is an amino acid. It is also one of the most researched and effective sports supplement which is easily available these days. Once taken in the correct dosage, its positive effects on human exercise performance has been documented in various studies. Beta Alanine is especially helpful in exercises that last from one minute to four minutes. An example of such exercise would be hypertrophy training where you perform 8 to 12 repetitions in a set. With the increased concentration of beta-alanine over a certain period, you may be able to pull in more reps than before. The recommended dosage is around 4-6 grams daily. You may feel a slight tingling sensation with its use which is harmless and will go away in approximately 30 minutes. 4. Citrulline/ Citrulline Malate Citrulline or Citrulline malate is also an option to be used as a pre-workout supplement. Though your body produces this amino acid by itself, increasing its concentration with the help of supplementation may help you to increase your exercise performance. Citrulline helps in increasing blood flow which, in turn, may help you in increasing oxygen supply to your muscles. Most studies on endurance exercises have been done on citrulline and effective dosage of 6 gm is recommended to boost exercise performance. Studies on weight training used Citrulline Malate as the supplement and found an effective dosage of 8 gm to reduce soreness by 40% after the workout. However, there have been recent studies that disputed this claim. Though one thing that the studies still agree upon is that citrulline helps you with more blood flow and thus can help with better vascularity as well. 5. Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) Though I am not a big fan of this supplement, yes, there are places where you can fit in EAAs. Before I tell you how exactly to do that, let me be clear that you really don't need to supplement EAAs separately if your total protein intake for the day is enough according to your goals.

  22. 'Game of Thrones' may be over, but the craze around it will not get over anytime soon, for reasons that we all are aware of. If you ever wondered whether the show has any Indian connection (apart from the well-known Indira Verma who plays Ellaria Sand), here is one more. The Dothraki 'Qhono' has a solid Indian connection. Before we get on with it, here's Qhono, in case you don't remember who he exactly is.

  23. Sadly, most theories and prophecies didn't work in 'Game of Thrones', as we saw a rather clustered final season, with a lot of loose ends, that did not even make sense. Even so, towards the bittersweet end, the fog finally settled and things played out as and how they had to. But truly, if 'Game of Thrones' has taught us anything, it's how prophecies don't always come true even though they've been predicted by a reliable source. For instance, the infamous Valonqar prophecy, where Cersei was told by a fortune teller that her younger brother would eventually strangle her to death, didn't see the light of day. Although, all the other predictions Maggy the Frog had made, came true eventually. Cersei lost all her children but she died with Jaime when the Red Keep structure collapsed on them. (c)HBO Just like the Valonqar prophecy, the show emphasised a lot on the 'Prince That Was Promised' as well. The prophecy entailed a reincarnated form of the folklore warrior Azor Ahai, who ended the long night and brought light into the world, again. Azor Ahai killed the White Walkers in the past, by forging a sword by the name of 'Lightbringer' and brought in an era of peace and tranquillity. In a conversation with Ser Davos, Melisandre once stated: “There will come a day after a long summer when the stars bleed and the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world, In this dread hour, a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him.” (c)HBO So, in all practicality, she was predicting Azor Ahai or the return of the 'Prince That Was Promised', to end the long night again. At first, we all concluded that Arya Stark could be the warrior reborn, as she was the one who killed the Night King in episode 3 of Season 8 but as the Season progressed, we saw the possibilities of that not being true. (c)HBO The final twist towards the end of the show reveals that perhaps Jon Snow actually fulfilled the Azor Ahai prophecy and could clearly be the 'Prince That Was Promised.' Let's go back many years, shall we? According to legend, when Azor Ahai became a warrior, he needed to forge a hero's sword to end the darkness. A sword that would burn bright, while being used on the enemy. He spent 30 days and 30 nights to create his 'Lightbringer'. But when he tempered his sword in water, it broke. He didn't give up that easy and started making it from scratch, again. This could metaphorically be seen as Jon gathering an army to defeat the Night King. Even though Arya killed the Night King, Jon assembled the resources to defeat him and his army. Coming back to Azor Ahai, the second time he tried to create the Lightbringer, he took fifty days and fifty nights to make the sword. To forge it properly, this time he tempered it by capturing a lion and driving the blade through his heart, but alas, the steel shattered again. (c)HBO Again, this could have a metaphorical angle as the lion here can refer to Cersei, the ruling queen, whose house sigil is indeed a lion. Even though Jon didn't kill Cersei, he did defeat her army and fought till the very end, till there were no Lannisters aka lions left in Kingslanding, except, of course, Tyrion. Again, getting back to Azor Ahai's third attempt to forge his sword, it wasn't too disappointing this time. He knew what he had to do to create the perfect blade. He worked straight for 100 days and 100 nights and finished it. This time though, he called his wife Nissa Nissa and asked her to bear her bosom. He drove the blade right through her heart, where the steel combined with her heart and her soul to create the ultimate sword the 'Lightbringer', the Red Sword of heroes, finally. The sword was as warm and lit as Nissa Nissa's heart. (c)HBO Now, going back and connecting the dots, Jon did something similar, for the greater good of the realm, to drive any evil away. He stabbed Dany right through her heart and protected the world from any darkness and fire, bringing in the light, so that the kingdoms could be ruled peacefully. Azor Ahai's prophecy also reads the following: “Once Azor Ahai fought a monster, when he thrust his sword through the belly of the beast its blood began to boil. Smoke and steam poured from its mouth, its eyes melted and dribbled down its cheeks and its body burst into flame.” (c)HBO In this case, after Jon kills Dany, the monster refers to the Iron Throne, which Drogon, Dany's dragon burnt down to ashes, as it was a monster of sorts that drove Dany towards the depth of madness and didn't bring her back. So, all in all, you can see that Jon's personality is somehow very synonymous to who Azor Ahai actually was, as Jon too made the ultimate sacrifice. Even though he was the rightful heir to the throne, he gave that up to let Dany rule the world. But when he saw grave injustice and her act of violence towards the end, he ended her life, someone he deeply loved, to protect the realm and making a world a better place to live in. (c)HBO It might not be everything that was prophesied, but there are similarities that do match up to what Azor Ahai did years ago and Jon selflessly, almost did the same. Well, we'll only know more once George RR Martin finishes his last two books, shedding some more 'light' on this prophecy.
  24. It's 2019, a ballpark year where millennials are taking over new ways to think and act freely and as a rejoinder to that, a recently conducted survey on Tinder suggests that most millennials prefer being single than in relationships. It's apparently cooler flying solo than choosing a partner to spend time with and most young people agree. © Pinterest Back in the day, being single was looked down or lamented upon and everyone was trying to find the 'right partner' or get back in the game till they hit jackpot but now, it's out of choice, men especially, like to remain single and dabble in either light dating or just hooking up once in a while. The fair assumption of ending up with 15 cats or as a loner ceases to exist as people embrace singlehood more willingly. © Excel Entertainment Being single does have its perks though. You can roam about freely without having to check with your significant other if you can! You don't have to share your dessert and you don't have to try hard to look good for someone else. Maybe just do that for yourself instead. Men and women between the ages of 18-25 are selectively choosing to remain single and live life on their terms and it's certainly a good evolutionary curve and a step away from getting married at a particular age. The results from the survey are quite fascinating, to be honest. So much so, they inspired Tinder's new 'single is a terrible thing to waste' campaign, promoting the single life to be fun, fascinating and aspirational. © Eros International The survey was conducted by the consultancy firm Morar HPI and over 1000 young people from the age groups of 18-25 were asked about their attitude and ideas of singlehood and dating. About 72% of men and women claimed they had made a conscious decision to be single and not because they didn't have a choice and that's quite a high percentage for a survey like this! About 81% of them agreed to the fact that being single benefited them as they had more room for personal growth, platonic friendships, scope to find new people all the time and time and space to work on themselves. More than 17% of men felt the need to stay single and not give relationships a thought, in general. Most of them were a little apprehensive on commitment and getting hurt in the longer run of the relationship. © Eros International The fear of becoming 'boring' in a relationship made at least 39% of the population a little wary to get into one in the first place and about 55% thought being single opens up new and fresher experiences than being in a relationship! Apart from these reason, 66% didn't want to get into a relationship because of a cultivated fear of being with the wrong person. Of course, single friends have friends in relationships that could have gone absolutely south, making them believe it's better to be single than to end up with the wrong person. A lot of men believe that they don't want to compromise on their independence so they choose to be single instead of tied down to another person. © UTV Motion Pictures So, mostly the reasons the millennial generation prefer staying single in this day and age is to be more independent, make selective life choices without anyone else's intervention, the fear of heartbreaks and ending up with the wrong person and establishing an identity that's synonymous with being fun and exciting rather than boring. Well, in my opinion this is a progressive standpoint taken over by the younger generation today and unlike before, this view will help the generation understand how to make relationships work a lot better, whenever they do decide to get into them.
  25. Spoilers. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a long-standing tradition of heavily manipulating their trailers, especially when it comes to movies like 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame'. Or, maybe it's just the Russo brothers being very extra. We all know how much of a secret the plot of 'Endgame' was, as even the actors weren't given full scripts and the Russo brothers even made some of them shoot fake scenes to keep them in the dark. Yes, they went to extreme lengths to keep everything under wraps so obviously, they wouldn't have undone all of that by just straight up giving away scenes in the trailers, teasers, and TV spots. Last year, we managed to find a bunch of differences between scenes in trailers and the actual scenes in the movie for 'Infinity War'. Now, for 'Endgame', the stakes are higher and so it the secrecy. Here are all the scenes from the trailer that were manipulated or just didn't appear in the movie: 1. Nat Practicing To Fight Thanos With A Gun??? Well, if a freaking axe made from a dying star can't kill the giant grape, a gun will, apparently. Okay, I don't want to be so mean about a scene that never even made it to the movie - probably because it was stupid - but what was the point? Sorry Nat, you can't kill Thanos with a gun. 2. Black Widow's Hair, Part One If you recall, Scott Lang showing up at the Avengers compound is what set everything in motion. Also, that happened five years after the Avengers managed to kill the present day Thanos. So, during that time jump, Nat has been keeping busy making peanut butter sandwiches and getting emails from a racoon, so of course, she let her hair grow out. In this particular scene in the movie, her hair is long and almost entirely red and not short and blonde. 3. The Avengers Walking In Their New Suits This was one of the best moments from all of the trailers when it came out because we saw everyone together. At that time also, a lot of people noted the absence of Thor and Bruce Banner. Well, now we know they were there but their look for the movie couldn't be revealed before. 4. 'Bring Me Thanos' (Again) A scene from 'Infinity War' that wasn't even in 'Infinity War'. This is basically a different version or maybe just a close of the best moment from the third Avengers movie - Thor's entrance in Wakanda. 5. Steve Crying In the trailers, the scene is set up as if he's crying because they couldn't stop Thanos before he snapped his fingers, but in reality, this comes after Natasha Romanoff's sacrificial death to get the Soul Stone. Moreover, there's someone else in the shot as well, standing in the back. (I can't remember who, I'm sorry, I've only watched the movie once yet) 6. Black Widow's Hair, Part Two I love how Natasha's red/blonde hair is used to make a timeline and also used for manipulation. This exact scene happened after the five-year time jump in the movie, therefore her hair was red and not 'Infinity War' blonde by that time. 7. Cap's Shield Captain America's shield is literally the most reliable and constant thing throughout the entire MCU and it's almost indestructible. But, it was time for Cap to get a new, improved weapon so the shield's gotta go. In the movie, when he's strapping on the shield to his arm, it's almost completely broken, thanks to the grape I mentioned before, so that crucial information sure as hell couldn't be revealed in the trailer. Also, is it just me or does this gif has 'I can do this all day' energy? 8. Cap's Giddy Optimism 'I missed that giddy optimism' - turns out Cap and Tony weren't all hugs and smiles when Tony actually said this line. In the trailer, it seems like he said this to Cap as a joke right at this point, but obviously, it came at a different time in the movie. Tony said this to Cap at his house, not the Avengers compound and plus, it wasn't a friendly comment but rather a taunt. 9. Captain Marvel's Helmet I really don't think anyone cares about this one, but in this scene, she wasn't wearing her helmet. I'm pretty sure the edit here is just to not reveal her new hairstyle, which again no one cares that much about. But hey, it got us a funny quip from Rocket so it's all good.
