  1. While it is the general belief that being a celebrity who enjoys considerable fame, means you eat, breathe, roll around and even poop cash, the same might not be true at all times. People's celebrity status often makes them seem almost 'invincible', but what we tend to forget most often is that at the end of the day, even our most favourite and top celebrity is human, and that means they are not above the diktats of fate. The wheels of fortune can turn for anyone, no matter how successful and famous you are at any given time, and these five popular Bollywood celebrities are proof that when it comes to money, you can never be too confident. One wrong investment, one callous move and your entire bank balance can go for a complete toss. These 5 Bollywood actors lived to tell the tales of their bankruptcy and here is everything you should know. 1. Amitabh Bachchan © Instagram One of Bollywood's all-time biggest stars, Amitabh Bachchan had once shared with the media how he went bankrupt in 2000 with Rs 90 crore as debt. Reportedly, 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' became his only saving grace. He had said, “In the year 2000, when the entire world was celebrating the new century, I was celebrating my disastrous fortune. There were no films, no money, no company, a million legal cases against the company and the tax authorities had put notice of recovery on my home.” 2. Preity Zinta © Instagram Preity too didn't seem to have great luck donning the producer's hat. Reportedly, after her production 'Ishkq in Paris' crashed at the box office, the film's writer-director Abbas Tyrewala filed a case against Preity for non-payment of dues. Apparently, Preity had to put her apartment on rent to clear the dues, and along with a little help from good friend Salman Khan she got out of the soup. 3. Govinda © Instagram Govinda's bad luck with finances came into light when he confessed about being broke at his daughter's film premiere. An emotional Govinda shared how he barely managed to get by for days and struggled to even hire a taxi or rickshaw. 4. Abhay Deol © Instagram Reportedly, Abhay Deol too paid a heavy price (literally) for turning producer. His home production 'One By Two' was a major failure at the box office and made the actor suffer a huge financial loss. Things apparently got so bad that he had to sell his homes to repay all the loans. 5. Shah Rukh Khan © Instagram Megastar and Bollywood 'Badshah' Shah Rukh Khan was also on the verge of going completely broke after his home production 'Ra.One' and its disastrous innings at the box office almost sent him packing. King Khan confessed that the production of the film cost him a fortune and the film's crashing almost crushed his bank balance.
  2. It has been more than a day-and-a-half since Lasith Malinga delivered that extra slow ball as the final delivery of the 2019 season of the Indian Premier League, which not only provided the Sri Lankan with the most important wicket of the league but also his team their fourth title, making them the most successful IPL franchise in history. Sure, social media hailed the unorthodox pacer as the saviour of Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians and yes we had a good laugh with whatever MI owner Nita Ambani was chanting during the final stages of the match, but there was one person whose heroics went unnoticed amongst all the noise. When Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings failed to come up with a steady batsman on the crease, former member of the Australian cricket team and one of the most celebrated cricketers in the history of the IPL, opener Shane Watson remained the unshaken cog of whatever competition CSK were able to give MI. © IPL - Twitter Even though the Aussie did not have the most consistent season this year, Watson returned to his old self, as the man who helped the 'Whistle Podu' team win the championship exactly one year ago. Scoring 80 off just 59 balls, Watson almost won Chennai their fourth title, single-handedly had it not been for that failed attempt to score an extra single that got the all-rounder run out. What makes his efforts a lot more impressive is that Watson played a good portion of his innings with an extensively bruised and bloodied left knee. After losing the final, CSK's veteran spinner, Harbhajan Singh put up an Instagram story talking about Watson's injury: © Instagram - Harbhajan Singh “Can you guys see the blood on his knee... He got 6 stitches after the game...Got injured while diving but continued to bat without telling anyone,” wrote the 38-year-old athlete. The Super Kings consist of the oldest cricketers of the league on an average and despite the fact that in the past two years, they have won one title and reached the final once again, which, if you ask us, sounds like a great team but replacing older players like Watson, Singh and MS Dhoni is inevitable.
  3. 'Avengers: Endgame' was incredible, yes, but we were still robbed of a very important scene that would have made it even better, IMHO. Apparently, a Thor vs Thor sequence was being planned, but it ultimately never saw the light of the day. Not cool, Marvel, we deserved to see Thor kicking his own ass. Now that the spoiler ban is lifted, the Russo Brothers are openly talking about everything 'Endgame'-related and the topic of an almost fight scene also came up. During an interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the directors talked about a fight scene they had originally planned between Thor and well, Thor, but it would have been “Lebowski Thor facing off against Buff Thor”. Joe Russo said, “We did have a sequence where they finally confront each other in Asgard. I can't remember exactly why we moved off it,” with Anthony Russo adding, “I think it got overly complicated and we liked Cap vs Cap better.” Well, considering how much they had to perfectly execute in one movie and how the Cap vs Cap scene was one of the best things about the movie, it's okay to let this one slide. As much as I would've loved to see the showdown between the Thors, Cap's very self-aware fight with the 2012 version of him was great. Joe said, “Once you start developing it, you can see how crowded it gets. We wanted to make sure we had story space to create real conflict for the Avengers that were going back [in time].” Moreover, we maybe got a better storyline with present-day Thor going back in time to collect the Reality Stone from Asgard. The conversation he had with his mother was extremely important for him and you could really see it during the rest of the movie. A Thor who had lost everyone, and also lost the chance to kill Thanos in time had just given up, he was down in the dumps and Frigga really did help him out, and honestly, no one other than his own mother could've helped him at that point. And, that's exactly what the Russos also intended. Anthony said, “I think there we also deferred to the storyline of Thor and his mother, which was more resonate. That was more part of Thor's journey and repair than confronting his former self.”
  4. This is the most common question asked by anyone trying to lose weight - “How do I lose the tummy fat and my love handles?” Well, yes. This query makes total sense. After all, everybody wants a flat tummy and we get sold every day on products that promise results with minimal effort. Products like: “Use this special ab machine and get a flat stomach in minutes!” “Flat tummy in 21 days via FitTea." “Eat this superfood to target belly fat and get toned!” “Put this cream on your tummy and burn fat in 10 mins” "Drink Green Tea, it increases metabolism and decreases body fat”, as promoted vigorously by an already skinny Bollywood actress. And surprisingly, people fall for it! If you clicked on this article link for the next magic solution, I am sorry. There is no such thing! Wake up! Instead, I'm going to give you some actual information which can help you in getting a flat stomach: 1) Nutrition: a) Consume fewer calories than you are currently eating and drinking, aka calorie deficit. In order to do that, you need to know how much you currently eat and you need a plan to eat less, and then, you need to track how consistent you are with it. To know how much you eat? Use an app like MyFitnessPal or FatSecret to diligently track your calorie intake and then adjust your numbers down from there. b) Consume more fruits and vegetables: I'm talking about green veggies, not potatoes here. Green veggies have a high amount of fibre and micronutrients which helps you in general well being. © Getty Images Fruits are also high in fibre and micronutrients. If you're facing a problem regarding your bowel movements then you should implement them in your diet. c) Eat enough protein: This one should be fixed in your nutritional strategy. Animal sources at every meal for non-vegetarians and for vegetarians, whey protein, grains and dairy products. This helps to preserve, repair and build the muscle. This will keep you satiated during your fat loss phases. d) Eat Carbs: Carbs are your primary source of fuel. It gives you instant energy to blast your workout. Pre and post workout carbs are a must to build a good body composition. Carbs make you bigger and fill your muscles with water. e) Eat dietary fats: Fats are calorie dense but eating in moderation can help you avoid hormonal issues, joint issues and various other health problems. Dietary fats can come from nuts, olive oil, eggs, nut butter, etc. 2) Training a) Incorporate compound movements- Learn the exercise form to build your core strength. Full body movements like the squat, the bench press, the deadlift or the overhead press engage and train your core. Implement big movements properly in your training plan so that you can lift heavy overtime and gain a good amount of muscle. © Getty Images b) Machines and isolation movements are your best friend: These specific exercises like hack squat, chest press, cable curls can directly work your muscles and can help you to gain a good chunk of muscle. Incorporating them with compound movements are the best thing when it comes down to build a good physique. c) Train your core: Pick 2-3 exercises and stick to them at least for 8-10 weeks. Don't swap your exercises every week like your so-called favourite bodybuilder. Swapping exercises will keep you away from progressive overload and won't grow your physique. Progressive overload is the secret sauce to build muscle. d) Do some cardio: Cardio isn't bad if you have a balanced training plan. Cardio can be a great tool to increase your energy expenditure and hey it's not necessary to do cardio in the gym, you can count your steps and keep a daily target. 3) Last But Not The Least, SLEEP- Sleep is very important, as important as nutrition and training. Less sleep can hammer your testosterone levels and recovery. If you don't recover from your training stress, you might end up losing your present muscle tissue. It can also make more difficult to lose body fat – particularly around the mid area, which you want to lose as soon as possible.

  5. Spoilers ahead. If I ask any Marvel fan which quote started the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, they would tell me one thing - He's fucking Iron Man and he wants the world to know that! This was such a huge defining moment for the MCU. What a line, so simple yet so powerful, and it made the first 'Iron Man' movie so much better. Side note, Happy Birthday to the first Iron Man movie! 'I am Iron Man', the last line spoken in the first 'Iron Man' movie made a comeback in 'Avengers: Endgame' as well, of course. 'Iron Man' was RDJ's first appearance as the iconic character that changed the world of Marvel forever and 'Endgame' marked the last time, sadly. So, it's kind of symbolic to see everything come full circle, just like his character arc did. But, it came as such a surprise to me that the iconic line almost didn't make it to the movie. In the last moment, during the final battle in 'Endgame', Thanos finally has the gauntlet with all the Infinity Stones and says “I am inevitable”. At that moment, all hope was lost for a second and we thought everyone would disintegrate again when Thanos snaps his fingers again. But, Tony Stark comes to the rescue and prevents the repeat of the final 'Infinity War' scene. He steals - very sneakily, I might add - all the stones from Thanos and delivers the one line, the best line at that moment - 'I am Iron Man' - right before snapping his fingers and making Thanos and his entire army disintegrate. Turns out, that line was actually a last minute addition. He originally wasn't supposed to say anything, but the Russo Brothers talked about how difficult it was to nail the final line. They said, “We were in the editing room going, 'He has to say something. This a character who has lived and died by quips.' And we just couldn't, we tried a million different last lines.” Then, Jeff Ford, the Russo Brothers' right-hand man and editor on 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', 'Civil War', 'Avengers: Infinity War', and 'Endgame' gave the best suggestion - “Why don't we just go full circle with it and say 'I am Iron Man'?” They loved it so much that they immediately went, “Get the cameras! We have to shoot this tomorrow.” And, the rest is history. I would personally like to thank Jeff because without that final line in 'Endgame', the movie wouldn't have been the same.
  6. Why do some companies make really hideous clothes and then try to sell them at a really high price? Because they know that no would actually buy it and they'll get free publicity out of it? Well, that honestly seems like the only reason for a monstrosity like this to exist. View this post on Instagram Two words: Denim panties. The SSENSE editors show you five ways to take your Canadian tuxedo to the next level, featuring @yproject_official, @muglerofficial, @junyawatanabeofficial, and more ð Link in bio. A post shared by SSENSE (@ssense) on Mar 26, 2019 at 8:07am PDT Why? Just, why? I would like to believe that no one ever thought this was a good idea and it was just put up on the website, that too for Rs 21,873 freaking bucks, to get people talking. Yes, I know we're giving them exactly what they want by writing about it right now but I can't help it. They're so unsettling to look at and people are confused, and just disgusted with them. The biggest question, though, is what kind of occasion would actually require these. I also want to know the purpose of denim panties, like are they supposed to be worn on their own or are you supposed to wear pants on top of them? Safiya, the weird clothing queen has spoken.

  7. Even if you are just a casual fan of cricket, you know that the former Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is famous for his unorthodox style of playing the game. Be it his uncanny ways of stumping the opponents from behind the wicket or the unique commentary as the keeper, Dhoni's mind works in mysterious ways. In more than 15 years of brilliance on the cricketing field, Dhoni's atypical methods have very seldom failed to provide the cricketer with desirable results and have continued to make his fans marvel at the way Dhoni's genius works. The man has even contributed to the game by coming up with a shot of his own! Popularly known as the 'Helicopter shot' this extraordinary maneuver isn't the prettiest shot in the world but it surely gets the job done for 'Thala'. In an unprecedented combination of wrist movement and beastly power from the shoulders, Dhoni's 'Helicopter shot' normally hits the ball on a low point while making the bat go in a circular motion instead of the typical 'above the shoulder' follow-through. While this is MSD's own creation, him attempting the shot has become extremely rare as his raw nature evolved with the help of experience and practice. However, there's a video that's surfaced on YouTube that shows Dhoni trying to hit the iconic shot on almost every single ball delivered by the Pakistani bowler Mohammad Asif. According to the video, India were in a comfortable spot requiring just 28 runs from 30 ball to win the game when Pak bowler Mohammad Asif came in to bowl the fifth last over of the game. It seems 'Mahi Bhai' was in some kind of hurry as he scored a couple of boundaries and even a maximum using just the Helicopter. He also hit two more deliveries in similar fashion but failed to collect runs on those. We'll never know what goes inside the cool and calm mind of the future ICC Hall of Famer. All we can do is sit back and acknowledge his greatness.
  8. Respawn Entertainment's 'Apex Legends' is currently enjoying its time as one of the most popular Battle Royale titles of all time. The game recently hit 50 million players worldwide, which clearly means it's making some noise in the industry. Now that 'Apex Legends' has established a place for itself in the industry, it's important that we turn our attention to the future and see what Respawn Entertainment is cooking for us. Will there be a new map? New legends to play with? Yes, there are a lot of burning questions, so, here's everything we know about the Apex Legends battle pass: Apex Legends Roadmap Respawn Entertainment has always been pretty optimistic about the title and it even revealed its year one roadmap for the game during its launch last month. Here below is a peek at the roadmap: © Respawn Entertainment Yes, 'Apex Legends' season one will begin this month and the first battle pass will be available to purchase. We still don't have an exact date, but an anonymous source claims that March 12 will be the big day. Every new season, as you can see, will bring a new weapon (hopefully multiple weapons), legends, loot, and a new battle pass each time. We think there will also be an option to buy an annual battle pass, although there's no official word on that just yet. If everything goes as per the plan, then we'll get a new season every three months, which means the players are in for a slew of content throughout the year. Battle Pass Contents In the official Apex Legends FAQ page, the developer has clearly mentioned that the Battle Pass will reward players with exclusive cosmetic items. From legends and weapon skins to character quips and banner poses, we're expecting to see an influx of rewards. You'll also get Apex Packs, which will give you a chance of earning more cosmetic items. © Twitter The FAQ page also makes it very clear that new legends will not be a part of the Battle Pass. That, in all honesty, does make a lot of sense as the legends are a more valuable commodity and you can't have too many legends like, say, the skins. That being said, we think you'll be able to buy the new legends with Apex Coins or even with Legend tokens. Speaking of new legends, there are some leaks which suggest that we'll see a new legend named 'Octane' with some impressive abilities like restoring health, deployable jump pad, and more. We don't have all the info yet, but this is what the new legend could look like - © Electronic Arts Will There Be New Challenges? Challenges are the crux of every successful Battle Royale games like 'Fortnite'. Incentivize your challenges with high-quality rewards, and you can have the players engaged in your game for a long time. And if 'Apex Legends' truly wants to go head-to-head with the likes of 'Fortnite', then challenges would be a good place to start. However, there's no indication that the 'Apex Legends' Battle Pass will have any challenges just yet. © Respawn Entertainment How Much Will The Battle Pass Cost Respawn has remained tight-lipped about the Battle Pass so far, so your guess is as good as ours. But we hope 'Apex Legends' will undercut Fortnite's Battle Pass, which costs a little less than $10.
  9. When you have so much money that you don't even know what to do with it, you start spending it on honestly the most bizarre, frivolous things. Case in point - Drake's new diamond encrusted iPhone case. Oh, and it apparently cost him $400,000 which is exactly â¹2,85,92,000. Basically, while we're all struggling to even afford an iPhone, he spent the money it would take to buy, say 400 iPhones, on a single phone case. I mean, it's his money and he can do whatever he wants with it, so Champagne Papi just decided to call everyone a broke bitch at the same time. Well, here's the cover, and please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this is a little tacky. View this post on Instagram Because we can't do basic! Diamond iPhone case cover for our friend @champagnepapi ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼ A post shared by JASON OF BEVERLY HILLS (@jasonofbeverlyhills) on Feb 14, 2019 at 5:21am PST Not so basic, for sure. But, I still have some questions - What will happen when a new iPhone comes and it's time for Drake to upgrade? Will he stick to his current iPhone or drop another half a million dollars on a case? Is he being this extra just because he has a song called 'hotline bling' and this is literally hotline bling come to life? Does this case offer any extra protection when his phone inevitably falls? Will the diamonds prevent a broken screen? But, most importantly, I'm just scared of him losing his phone or someone stealing it. I mean, it would hurt us if we lost our iPhone, but he would not just lost his iPhone but 3 crore worth of diamonds as well. It hurts just thinking about it. Drake, be careful man, your phone is probably a target now.
  10. Revenue from services was a major contributing factor in Apple's revenue growth even though iPhone sales have plateaued in various countries. However, according to the latest estimates by Goldman Sachs, Apple received a lot of money from the search engine giant to remain the default search engine of Apple's Safari browser. An analyst for Goldman Sachs wrote in a note to investors: “Apple will need to add mid to high single digits growth back to Services revenues through successful launch of the 'Apple Prime' bundle including original video that we expect to be rolled out this Spring/Summer.” Estimates tell us that Google paid Apple anywhere near $9 and $10 billion which is a lot of money to spend to remain as a default search engine. Having said that, Apple is probably one of the biggest source of traffic for Google and in order to maintain those numbers, Google has to pay Apple a substantial amount every year. To put things into perspective, Apple accounts for roughly half of all mobile revenue and traffic. The payment basically ensures that Google remains as the default search engine on every iOS device. Apple is in a very good position where the company can demand more money over the years. Apple can obviously approach other search engine websites like Bing if Google choses not to pay the price in the future. This payment ensures Google will continue as the default search provider on iOS devices rather than a rival search engine. The downside to the agreement is that Apple can continue to push prices up each year and, if Google ever refuses to pay the amount, the Cupertino firm can simply approach a rival such as Microsoft and make Bing the default search engine. This is pure profit for Apple as the company's install base is increasing to grow even though sales of iPhones may have staggered.
  11. Following the first leak of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 a few weeks ago, more images have surfaced of the flagship and details about the phone are slowly getting clearer. We're just a month away from the launch but now high-quality photos of the device have popped up online, thanks to the German blog AllAboutSamsung. We've seen numerous render leaks and the prototypes come very close to them. The bezels have been snipped even further and there are radical changes on the back as well as the front. Samsung was the only mainstream brand to not embrace the notch last year and it intends to continue the same for its flagship. © AllAboutSamsung Instead of a notch, Samsung is embedding a punch-hole camera on the front. The “Infinity-O” hole-punch display, as they're officially called, first showed up in Samsung's A8 phones, which were only released in China. What we are looking at here are the prototypes for the 6.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ having a different punch-hole cut-out. The S10+ has a dual front-facing camera setup, while the S10 has a singular module. The back of the phone has a huge camera arrangement, with three lenses and LED flash and Samsung's typical PPG heart rate sensor. It's surprising that even the smaller S10 has three cameras, given that the S9+ has two cameras compared to the S9's single camera. It's possible Samsung could go with a dual camera setup on the S10 Lite variant. © AllAboutSamsung Lastly, the bottom of the phone has a USB-C charging port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This'll make Samsung among the few who still find space to house the ancient port and many users out there are going to be extremely happy about it. For now, we've seen the ceramic black and ceramic white colour options and rumours suggest we'll be seeing more options at launch. A few reports earlier in the week also mentioned the new phones will come with a Samsung Blockchain Keystore app. Ethereum has been listed as a supported cryptocurrency and it will have support for Bitcoin, Ethereum-derived token ERC20 and Bitcoin Cash as well at launch. © Twitter / VenyaGeskin1 The Galaxy S10 line will be unveiled in San Francisco on February 20th, which is less than a month away. There have also been leaks suggesting the price of the phones and Samsung is trying its level best to keep them consistent with last year's offerings. What are your thoughts on the initial design of the phone?
  12. If the Indian Premier League (IPL) is considered to be one of the most lucrative T20 tournaments across the world, Australia's very own Big Bash League (BBL), too, continues to entice cricket fans with entertaining and exciting clashes over the years. From some breathtaking bowling spells to batting masterclass of marauding batsmen, the BBL has given cricket fans some of the greatest moments in the sport. Staying true to its nature, the eighth edition of the BBL is proving to be one of the best since the league's inception. More recently, the 29th match of the ongoing edition between Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat, too, produced some priceless moments that enthralled pundits and spectators alike. Yes, Baz! He goes large to bring up another half-century, this one from 31 balls!#BBL08 | @Weet_Bix pic.twitter.com/XqpNstvA2a — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) 13 January 2019 If the blistering batting display of the 'Bash brothers' Brendon McCullum (69) and Chris Lynn (66*) - who combined to score nine sixes for their side - helped Brisbane to post 192 runs, the magical spells of Brendan Doggett (3-16) and Mitchell Swepson (3-22) forced Melbourne to bundle out for just 91 runs in their run-chase. While a massive 101-run triumph for Brisbane was already a talking point, the best, or should we say, the priceless moment of the game came through a fan in the stands at the Geelong Cricket Ground. A 16-year-old spectator produced one of the most cherished moments of the game in the 15th over when Lynn hit a massive six straight down the ground. This would've been the greatest catch in sporting history ðð He didn't get the catch, but he gets a Bucket Moment! #BBL08 pic.twitter.com/03o3HBlxDU — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) 13 January 2019 While the Brisbane batsman wasn't too bothered with the fielder at the ropes since the ball was travelling well beyond his reach, the young boy, who was sitting in the stands, ran from his seat and attempted to catch the ball near the sight screen. Showing great determination, the youngster nearly pulled off what would've surely been the greatest catch in sporting history, but he just couldn't hold onto the ball which slipped in the last moment. Though he missed out on completing the catch, the youngster's effort was hailed by cricket fans across the globe. Great effort considering he nearly copped it in the face ð ð ð ð — stephanie williams (@steph_983) 13 January 2019 Love bbl for these reasons basically.

  13. Ninja, the prolific games streamer whose real name is Tyler Belvins, has been ruling the internet with streaming games online. Ninja was already a competitive Halo player for the year; however, he achieved new found success after streaming Fortnite with rapper Drake in 2018. © YouTube The success has obviously paid off and he told CNN in an interview that he made nearly $10 million (Almost Rs 70 Crore) in 2018. He told CNN in an interview that 70 percent of his earnings came from Twitch and YouTube via ads and subscriptions. 30 percent of his income came from sponsorship deals with companies like Samsung, Red Bull and Uber Eats. Let's not forget that Ninja's $10 million earning is probably before tax. However, it's still a lot of money for a streamer to make in 2018. Earlier in 2018, Ninja reported that he was making around $500,000 every month from various sources. © YouTube In the interview, Ninja mentioned that he spends around 12 hours each day streaming, and in 2018, he estimated he played over 4,000 hours of Fortnite. Ninja has also seen success in other areas such as a cover star of ESPN magazine and also made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late night show. Fortnite and other Battle Royale games have been taking over the world for the past two years and it doesn't seem like the game will lose steam anytime soon. Ninja believes Forntite still has a lot of room to grow and will continue to stream the game. Ninja has also expanded to his own clothing line which he sells via his website and streams.

  14. As we near the end of the year, we're beginning to analyse how 2018 was for relationships. While some of them lasted longer than they should have, some saw a sad demise while the others made it to the apparent end goal- marriage. I would say 2018 was a mixed bag for relationships, where couple goals made an entry into the graph as non-reluctantly as possible. Although I'd also like to believe 2018 was the year for single people, who merely put themselves out there and probably faced the onslaught of a singleton as and when they had to. Maybe 'onslaught' is too harsh a word since single people have really lived up to their vices this year. © Thinkstock Interestingly, a popular online dating portal called OkCupid released some statistics and data on relationship movement and behaviour in 2018 and some of it was quite accurate from what I know. They definitely dismiss the theory of '2018 is the year for single people' and use data that are relevant for couples who love to spend time together. For those couples who met on the dating app, it was a thrilling year, to say the least. There were recounts of what they love doing together, where they like holidaying or have been throughout the year and what they individually like about each other. © Pintrest One thing that really caught our attention though, was something really specific the millennials like to indulge in, as a romantic gesture. The findings narrate that couples today like to indulge in an immense amount of PDA (public display of affection) and aren't shy or ashamed to proclaim their love for one another, in front of an audience. Of course, they don't want to see someone indulging in PDA, but when it comes to them, they're really big on PDA nowadays. According to the given data, 31% of men and women alike are big on PDA and aren't afraid or shy at showing off their physical affection in public one for each other. Another major indulgence we found through their data was men and women who like to pamper their respective GFs and BFs are more successful in their relationships. I guess PDA is a prominent part of that. According to OkCupid, 79% of men and women love to pamper their SOs silly. Which leads to healthier relationships with adequate attention given to both the individuals in the relationship. © Pintrest The new millennial dating structure is trying to ape the quintessential old-school methods of being around a partner and making relationships last. Earlier on, when dating techniques were relatively new, everything was a swipe away and fastidious. Millennials, this year, are learning to slow down with their respective relationships and care for the smaller things in life like pampering each other or showing an immense amount of physical love, publicly. Another aspect that came about on dating in 2018 was the couple's therapeutic release-travelling together. According to the given data, a lot of couples take travelling together as an undisputed way to spend time with each other. Goa happens to be the chosen destination of the year by most couples and a lot of them prefer stay-cations, where they can spend quality time together, just staying put in one place-like the couch and having a good time. © Pintrest Real-time relationships did see a bit of dynamic change in 2018, wherein men and women both mustered the will to do things a little more old-school than what we've been seeing as relationship trends. So, if you ever want to indulge in a long-term relationship and keep your partner happy, maybe spend a lot more time vacationing with them or travelling as a whole, pampering them and, of course, not limiting your sense of PDA, every once a while, whenever you get a chance to!
  15. We were all desperately waiting for the 'Avengers 4' trailer and then when it came out, after watching it, someone basically thought, “hmm, it's good but it needs Deadpool to make it better” and I think that's beautiful. Just to clarify, no that someone wasn't Ryan Reynolds as we would expect (but I mean I am sure Ryan definitely did think that but we're talking about someone else right now). The original 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer was brutal, to say the least; Tony Stark is slowly dying in space, almost everyone is dead, Thor looks defeated, Captain America is crying. There's just too many bad things happening but this parody trailer kind of takes some of the pain away because it's Deadpool and you know it's going to be hilarious. Starting off, it's not Tony sending a message to Pepper, but Deadpool talking to a Wolverine mask, so basically already off the best start. “Part of journey is the end, and I'm mad at Fox we couldn't do a film together.” Then it goes on to giving the best description of Thanos ever - “purple Homer Simpson.” I mean, it's better than my purple grape. Then, back at Avengers HQ, we have Deadpool looking at the Deadpool or actually Wade Wilson being dead. Such a sad moment. © YouTube You know what was one of the best parts of the original trailer? Hawkeye's entry but Deadpool improved it. Forget Peggy Carter, we have Deadpool looking at Hugh Jackman, obviously. And then, Deadpool was blonde. “I hope this doesn't work.” “Let's hope it does because I don't want to see a fifth Avengers movie.” In the end, we get another name for Thanos - “That Bruce Willis looking asshole.” Here's the weirdest and best Avengers-Deadpool crossover you'll ever see:
  16. Everyone knows that if you have a big Bollywood star in a movie, it's going to easily cross the 100 crore club, the 200 crore club or the 300 crore club, and it doesn't matter if it's even a good movie or not ('Race 3' and 'Thugs of Hindostan', I'm looking at you) But, all that usually happens after the movie. However, things are different in the case of '2.0', as you need some real star power to recover almost the entire budget before the movie has even hit the theatres. Yep, it seems like only Rajinikanth has the power to do that, and adding Akshay Kumar in the equation has its benefits as well. lyca productions '2.0' is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and apparently the costliest movie as well. With a budget of about 530 crores, the Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer is the most expensive movie to come out of India, surpassing even the two 'Baahubali' films. lyca productions With a crazy budget like that, forget profit, you would think that it's going to be an enormous task to just recover all the money back, but nope, the makers didn't even have to wait for the release of the movie to earn mone Reportedly, the movie has already earned about 490 crores. Yep, that means only about 40 crores to go, which seems no big deal at all. #2Point0 TN Pre-release Theaterical total advance is valued the highest in Tamil Cinema.. Nearly â¹ 120 Crs.. A First in Tamil Cinema to cross â¹ 100 Crs.. pic.twitter.com/sAGp6PFxxf — Ramesh Bala (@rameshlaus) November 19, 2018 Along with breaking records, here's also a little technical breakdown, if anyone's interested: Satellite Rights: Rs 120 crore (All Versions) Digital Rights: Rs 60 crore (All Versions) North Belt Rights: Rs 80 crore (Advance Basis) Andhra Pradesh/Telangana Rights: Rs 70 crore Karnataka Rights: Rs 25 crore Kerala Rights: Rs 15 crore Total: Rs 370 crore So yeah, the movie we all knew would obviously do well at the box office is already earning more money than any other movie and even breaking records.
  17. According to a report, Apple will finally revive its Mac Mini desktop computer, and will also release a redesigned version of its MacBook Air later this year. The new Mac Mini will be a professional-focused upgrade while the new MacBook Air is said to get cheaper. Starting with the MacBook Air, the design will remain the same as the current one but will feature thinner bezels around the screen. The 13-inch display will now have higher-resolution, in line with Apple's Retina display technology. The new display panel will have better brightness, a wide color gamut, and an extremely high contrast ratio. © BCCL "The new MacBook Air will be geared toward consumers looking for a cheaper Apple computer, but also schools that often buy laptops in bulk," say Bloomberg reporters Mark Gurman and Debby Wu. The current MacBook Air lineup starts at US$ 999, the newer version along with the Retina display is expected to cost around US$ 1200. Way back in 2015, Apple launched a 12-inch MacBook which was expected to be a successor but came in with a hefty starting price of US$ 1300. The newer variant is expected to fill the gap and will be targeted towards students and educational institutes. © BCCL The Mac Mini, on the other hand, will be receiving an upgrade after almost four years. The desktop computer costs a lot lesser at US$ 500, but does not include peripherals like the display monitor, keyboard, and mouse. According to the report the new Mac Mini will be targeted towards professional users and hence will receive upgraded storage, newer processor options, and maybe some new ports. Apple usually releases new Macs in October, after the iPhone launch. The Mac has been a consistent performer for the company and accounts for 11 percent of all Apple sales. In the recent years, we've seen Apple launching new products that are specifically targeted for students, accompanied by slightly lesser marked prices. © Apple Google's Chromebook has managed to grab a considerable amount of market share and in response, Apple has been ramping up its iPad lineup. Considering the current report, the new additions and price tag may not be able to put a dent in Google's ecosystem, but will definitely stand up against Microsoft's Surface series. Source: Bloomberg
