  1. Bad boy Badshah is Bollywood's reigning rapper, way before since Tareefan hit the radio stations and found itself on everybody's playlist. Fame and success have come along Badshah's way and he doesn't shy away from showing it off. Caught by our spy cams at the airport, Badshah was seen wearing a super-expensive tracksuit jacket, that only a Badshah could afford. Take a look for yourself. © Viral Bhayani Seen wearing a blue tracksuit jacket with red sleeves, Badshah paired it with grey gym shorts and Nike Air Jordan's. A price-by-price breakdown of each item will definitely blow your mind! © Balenciaga First up, is the oversized jacket. Courtesy of Balenciaga (a brand by which many B-town celebs swear too!), the oversized shell track jacket costs a whopping $950 (approx. Rs.63,650 only!). While you are still stuck on that figure, the jacket is lightweight with a two-way zip fastening and made in Italy (talk about videshi clothes). © Viral Bhayani If you are a Badshah follower and have stalked his social media, then you know that he is one of the Bollywood brand ambassadors for Balenciaga. And boy, he doesn't shy away from showing off his branded clothing. Considering B-towns love for the brand it makes us wanna buy something like this as well. (Though all we can afford is a rip-off) © Nike While the jacket may be the most expensive item of the entire look, don't forget to miss out the Air Jordan's. They aren't your regular Jordans but a retro alternate version, that cost another $205 (approx Rs. 13,700) Well the price of both these items is making our mind go numb. Moral of the story? Badshah is not only the Badshah of rap but also the Badshah of expensive tastes!
  2. Eid Mubarak! Yes, we maybe a little late to bring in the wishes but that's because we were busy eating home-cooked seviyaan. But now that we are back, we bring you updates from B-town and how our celebrities celebrated Eid. With Shabana Azmi's luncheon and Arpita Khan Sharma's dinner bash, here are all the celebrity looks from this weekend's Eid parties. Farhan Akhtar © Viral Bhayani For Shabana Azmi's Eid lunch, Farhan wore a light blue kurta with a white pyjama and brown closed toe sandals. That blue is perfect for a day luncheon. Anil Kapoor © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Anil Kapoor was rather busy on Eid attending two back-to-back parties, but he didn't forget to bring in the swag at the event. For his lunch trip, Anil wore a grey kurta with a small slit on the left (because kuch jhakaas hona chahiye) with a pair of black jeans and black sneakers. For the evening, Anil looked regal in an off-white Achkan-style kurta with a dhoti pyjama. He finished the look with brown slip-ons. Salman Khan © Viral Bhayani Sallu Bhai ditched his trademark kurta-pyjama look and showed up wearing a classic brown Being Human T-shirt with black jeans and shoes. Bobby Deol © Viral Bhayani Following Bhai's footsteps, Bobby showed up in a dot-printed grey shirt with black jeans and black sneakers. Please give notice to the uneven tucked shirt (easy styling technique for you there guys!) Saqib Saleem © Viral Bhayani Saqib showed up wearing an edgy black kurta with white pyjama and brogue black shoes. Double thumbs-up for that asymmetrical neckline! Kartik Aaryan © Viral Bhayani We were kind of hoping Kartik might twin with Bobby yet again, but Kartik showed up wearing a white Manish Malhotra kurta with blue jeans and fancy slippers. Aayush Sharma © Viral Bhayani Popular host Aayush Sharma wore a classic red-black combo with a deep-red kurta and black pathani salwar. He finished the look with black brogue style shoes. Ritesh Deshmukh © Viral Bhayani We saved the best for the last. Ritesh looked classic in a military green kurta with a deep side slit paired with white pyjama and white sneakers. We love how Ritesh pulled off the sneakers with a kurta-pyjama!

  4. Peru's last notable World Cup performance came in 1978 – a time when none of the current squad members were even born. Peru will be looking to finish 2nd in their group after France and give teams like Australia and Denmark a very tough fight. History Reuters Peru has its name in the history books. It was one of the only 13 nations invited to take part in the first ever FIFA World Cup, held in 1930 in Uruguay. It is quite surprising, therefore, that they have managed mere 6 appearances in World Cups thereafter. In fact, it is astonishing that after the inaugural tournament in 1930, their second appearance came 40 years later – in 1970! In spite of being an early footballing nation, Peru has failed to produce a team that can take them all the way to the World Cup. But being fair to them, the South American continent is full of giants like Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, and Chile. Playing qualification games against these nations has always proved to be tough. The South American giants play with an attacking flair that is difficult to neutralize, and if your team can't hold the ball during attack, it may be prone to counters, as Peru have been in the past. Peru's best performances at the World Cup were during two of their last three outings – in 1970 and in 1978. In both these campaigns, they reached the quarter finals. They are still remembered for the 1978 tournament, where they defeated Scotland 3-1 in a game that was one of their best performances in the World Cup. Current Form Reuters Peru have Brazil to thank for their World Cup qualification. Brazil's 3-1 hammering of Chile in the last game of CONMEBOL qualifiers, and Peru's 1-1 draw with Colombia saw them tie points with Chile. Peru had lost fewer games (6), as compared to Chile's 8, which meant that Peru grabbed the 5th place, and clung on to their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup. They had to play a qualifier against New Zealand over two legs - once in New Zealand and once in Peru to seal their World Cup fate. After a boring 0-0 draw where New Zealand played defensively, Peru was able to break their defence with a 2-0 victory during their home leg. One of the most relief inducing news updates for Peruvian fans and the Peru team is that they head into the World Cup with their captain Paolo Guerrero. Guerrero was almost on the verge of missing this World Cup after having been banned for allegedly consuming cocaine. However, just 2 weeks before the World Cup squads were announced, the court dramatically ruled in Guerrero's favour, thereby ensuring that Peru have the services of an experienced campaigner who had plied trade for Bayern Munich and Hamburger SV. Peru have been brilliant in defence, conceding just 7 goals in 8 games that they played in 2017. They are currently on a string of 5 wins, having won 2-0 against New Zealand, 2-0 against Croatia, 3-1 against Iceland away, 2-0 against Scotland, and 3-0 against Saudi Arabia away from home. Expectations At The World Cup Reuters Their defensive capabilities, possession-based football, presence of talismanic captain Paolo Guerrero, and recent run of victories will surely make them the 2nd favourites after France to qualify from Group C. In fact, it is the only one in group C that can contain France's counter attacking play, or even upset them. This Peru side is also being hailed as the strongest Peruvian team to take part in the World Cup. The players then, will be surely looking to better the 1978 record wherein they reached the Quarter finals! Apart from their captain Guerrero, experienced campaigners Jefferson Farfan who played for PSV Eindhoven and FC Schalke 04, and Andre Carrillo who played for Portuguese sides FC Porto and Sporting CP will have the onus of carrying their team over the line. Squad Goalkeepers: Pedro Gallese (Veracruz), Carlos Caceda (Deportivo Municipal), Jose Carvallo (UTC) Defenders: Aldo Corzo (Universitario), Luis Advincula (Lobos Buap), Christian Ramos (Veracruz), Miguel Araujo (Alianza Lima), Alberto Rodriguez (Atletico Junior), Anderson Santamaria (Puebla), Miguel Trauco (Flamengo), Nilson Loyola (Melgar) Midfielders: Renato Tapia (Feyenoord), Pedro Aquino (Lobos Buap), Yoshimar Yotun (Orlando City), Paolo Hurtado (Vitoria Guimaraes), Christian Cueva (Sao Paulo), Edison Flores (Aalborg), Andy Polo (Portland Timbers), Wilder Cartagena (Veracruz) Forwards: Andre Carrillo (Watford), Raul Ruidiaz (Morelia), Jefferson Farfan (Lokomotiv Moscow), Paolo Guerrero (Flamengo).
  5. Be it the La Liga, the Champions League, or the World Cup, every tournament invariably becomes about these two – Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. It has been 10 years since these two have dominated the world stage by winning all the Ballon D'Or trophies between them. The world has never been fixated on and divided by just two players so much. Yes, we still have the Pele vs Maradona debate but their careers hardly overlapped in terms of playing years. Source: Reuters Cup after cup, Messi has been carrying the expectations of not just his own nation, Argentina, but of millions of fans who worship him and consider him to be from another planet. It's an open secret that if Leo manages to lift the World Cup, he will stamp his authority as the greatest player of all time. However, the World Cup has eluded Messi. He came within touching distance of lifting it in 2014, but an extra time stunner by Goetze saw Germany lifting the cup. Source: Reuters Last night, people from around the world witnessed the brilliance of Ronaldo, when he struck 3 goals, taking his hat-trick tally to 51. What's more special is that he managed to score the goals against a formidable Spanish squad and, arguadbly, the world's best goalkeeper De Gea. He lit up the World Cup and gave an open challenge to Messi after stroking his chin while celebrating the first goal. It was an inkling that he's the G.O.A.T. – Greatest of all time. Source: Reuters They are such fierce competitors that both of them up their game after seeing the other perform. Will Messi be able to give the world reasons to celebrate ecstatically, just like Ronaldo did last night? Or will the pressure weigh too heavily on him as Argentina face World Cup debutants Iceland up first? We hope for the former! Messi vs Ronaldo at the World Cups The legends are almost neck-to-neck as far as records are concerned - Messi: Games: 15 Goals: 5 Assists: 3 Ronaldo: Games: 14 Goals: 6 Assists: 2 (Updated after last night's Spain vs Portugal game) Argentina play debutants Iceland today at 6:30 pm IST
  6. We have always looked up to our celebrities for style advice, and this week was no less. Whether it is a trailer launch, promotional event or a star-studded iftar party, Bollywood stars know how to show up in style. With a week coming to an end, we bring you the best dressed celebrity looks from this week. Karan Johar At The Screening Of 'Lust Stories' © Viral Bhayani Karan Johar slays it every time he steps out the door. Literally. His appearance at the much talked about Netflix original 'Lust Stories' was no less. Seen wearing a black round neck T-shirt with ripped jeans, the jacket just steals all the attention. Bombarded with stickers, Karan isn't afraid to wear what he speaks. He completes the look with matching olive green sneakers and thick, bold, black frame glasses. Bobby Deol At 'Race 3' Screening © Viral Bhayani Bobby Deol isn't just making a comeback to the big screen but is putting his best fashion foot forward with each appearance. While there were many looks that Bobby aced this week, we zeroed down to his look at the 'Race 3' screening. Wearing a Gucci Black Cat round neck T-shirt with a cat face graphic right in the centre, Bobby pairs it well with white distressed jeans and grey boots. Ranbir Kapoor For 'Sanju' Promotions © Viral Bhayani The bravest and the best from Ranbir. Ever! Ranbir's look at his recent outing for promoting his upcoming movie 'Sanju' deserves a place on this list. If you are looking for inspiration on how to pull off multiple colours in a look, then look nowhere else, because Ranbir tells you how. The bright T-shirt, slim fit trousers, elegant boots and the breezy jacket just got our eyes glued on to him. Varun Dhawan At A Book Cover Launch © Viral Bhayani While Varun has multiple things on his plate right now ('Kalank', 'Sui-Dhaaga' and what not), looking dapper comes naturally to him. At Amish Tripathi's book cover launch, Varun looked like he had walked right out of Hogwarts with that uniform-style jacket. Combine that with the blue round neck T-shirt and blue striped pants with those rugged shoes and you have got a perfect look to make it to the list! Ayushmann Khurrana At IIFA Mumbai Conference © Viral Bhayani Ayushmann looked like he had walked right out a fashion show. At the Mumbai leg of the IIFA press conference, Ayushmann wore a tartan check pant-suit over a black kurta. The Dhruv Vaish outfit was paired with Adidas Original sneakers and yellow tinted sunglasses with black bold frame from Tom Ford. Anil Kapoor At The 'Race 3' Screening © Viral Bhayani Even at 61, Anil's elegance and style are only maturing each day. For the screening of 'Race 3', Papa Kapoor decided to wear a white polo T-shirt paired with dark washed jeans and sneakers. What made Anil make it to list was that Jhakaas denim-appearing hooded jacket Virat Kohli At The Airport © Viral Bhayani No best-dressed list is complete without an airport look. We had many contenders but Captain Kohli made it to the list. Virat's uniform airport look consisted of a black T-shirt with distressed jeans and white sneakers. He finished the uber cool look with a pair of black tinted sunglasses with an orange frame. Virat gives us an easy and stylish airport look.
  7. The colossal convention E3 is upon us and this is the most exciting part of the year for gamers out there. E3 2018 has been filled with new announcements, trailers, and reveals. There are so many good games that it's easy to miss out on an important title from the event. We have compiled a list of the most exciting games that were revealed or shown-off this week! Keep in mind, the order of these games is random and the numbers do not mean its ranking. 1. Fallout 76: © Bethesda Softworks 'Fallout 76' was first revealed before E3, but Bethesda finally rolled out some solid details during its event -- it is now confirmed that the game is only online and multi-player centric. It is a prequel to the other games in the 'Fallout' Series where the player is cast as one of the first survivors of the retro-future nuclear apocalypse. The map is four times the size of 'Fallout 4', and it's all rendered with new terrain technology that should allow for more varied and interesting environs. 2. Last of Us Part II: © Naughty Dog It's been five years since the first iteration of the game was released and it was lauded for its storytelling and tense action. The trailer of the new game perfectly shows Ellie (one of the main protagonists) at a party with friends one minute, and silently taking out bandits the next. The animation has improved leaps and bounds and the physics engine has been seriously cranked to churn out impressive new manoeuvres like dodge mechanic, or using foliage for cover and bodies as a shield. 3. Assassin's Creed: Odyssey © Ubisoft This game has already been leaked on multiple occasions in the past few months, but it has finally made an official debut at Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference. The franchise is sticking to ancient times, moving from Egypt to Greece this time around. A lot of new RPG elements have been added like choosable characters, romance options, and a branching storyline. The game is scheduled to arrive in October. 4. Wolfenstein: Youngblood: © Bethesda Softworks After 'Wolfenstein: The New Order' and 'Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus' this game is back and there are way more Nazis to kill. Series protagonist BJ Blazkowicz is being succeeded by his daughters Jess and Soph as they search for their father in Paris. There isn't a lot of detail available right now but the game is expected to be launched in 2019 and is suitable for playing on both, single as well as multiplayer mode. 5. Ghosts on Tsushima: © Sucker Punch The protagonist, Jin, is alive during the invasion of Japan by the Mongols and confronts several of these marauders as they terrorize the locals. The developer, Sucker Punch, has exhibited Japanese combat systems including a Katana. The gameplay also boasts a portion of stealth gameplay too, along with an AI system in place as you fight with your ally to secure the objective. The trailer shows Jin infiltrating a temple, with some suitably exciting swordplay. 6. Spider Man: © Insomniac Games Insomniac Games has brought everything you'd want from a superhero game -- all the main characters, a fully open NYC map, a plethora of powers and ample crime to fight. The best part about this game is that it is based on the original storyline from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The game is scheduled to release on 7th of September this year. 7. Division 2: © Ubisoft This game is based in Washington DC where a "dollar flu" has managed to wipe out most of the city and other parts of the country. This is when the Division arrives. At first, you'll have to make your way to the affected region and keep hostile factions in check. The game will be available in March 2019 followed by three free DLC episodes coming out in the year to keep players coming back for more. 8. Resident Evil 2 Remake: © Capcom It's been 20 years, but ''Resident Evil 2' is finally getting a remake on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The remake of 'Resident Evil 2' will trade the fixed cameras of the original game for a third-person over-the-shoulder view, similar to more recent 'Resident Evil' games. Players will still be able to play as both Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy, as they explore a zombie-infested Raccoon City. We don't know how much of the original game will be retained. The game will be available from 29 January 2019. 9. Gears 5: © Epic Games The next instalment in the 'Gears of War' franchise is coming next year. There is also a PC strategy and mobile game on the way for a franchise that has been dormant and ignored for a few years. The gameplay shows off some new enemies and odd new melee weapons for players to wield alongside their massive guns. It will have support for 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR, and will run at 60 frames per second. Like all first-party Xbox games, 'Gears 5' will be available on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 when it does release next year. 10. Doom Eternal: © Bethesda Softworks The last reboot of 'Doom' came out in 2016 and it was a raging success. At the end of 'Doom', the Doom Slayer was banished back to Hell by Samuel Hayden, a cyborg with a boring name. The new game mostly takes place after the betrayal and takes the storyline forward. A brief teaser on YouTube shows a destroyed city, rife with the distinct demons of "DOOM," before the rage-filled supersoldier from the last game appears.
  8. Diljit Dosanjh is that rare mix of opulence and humility, that makes us wonder how he remains grounded despite reaching the zenith of success.

  9. Our wait is finally over! The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off yesterday with a bang and this year's host, Russia, took a lead by 5-0 against Saudi Arabia. Although it's too soon, but it's safe to say that last night's game was undoubtedly an interesting match. I mean, if Canada and Bermuda ever played against each other in a Cricket World Cup, this will be the kind of thrill and excitement I will have while cheering for them. For those who got the joke, pat your backs and those who didn't, let's move forward. © Reuters As many as 32 countries will compete with each other for the coveted World Cup this year. After all, it's one of the biggest sports events in the world and the trophy is way more valuable and expensive than most of our annual salaries combined. But, did you know that these teams are putting their lives on the field to win a fake trophy? FYI, the real World Cup trophy is made of 18-carat gold, weighs around 6 kg and is 14.5 inches tall. The base contains two layers of semi-precious malachite and the underside is engraved with a year and name of each winner since 1974. Anyway, the point is that the trophy that half of the world is competing for is not a real one; it's actually a replica of the original trophy. Wondering, who gets to keep the real one? Well, it's none other than FIFA aka the International Federation of Association Football. © Twitter And there's a legit reason behind it. So in 1946, the OG trophy was commissioned from French sculptor Abel Lafleur and was named the Jules Rimet Cup in honour of the founding father of the FIFA World Cup. “The trophy was a depiction of the goddess of victory holding an octagonal vessel above her head, produced in gold with a base of semi-precious stones,” is what the description of the original one read on the official website of FIFA. © FIFA Not many people know that the trophy has an eventful history of its own that's way more interesting than our drunken tales. During the World War II, the Jules Rimet Cup was hidden in a box under a bed, which was later stolen in 1966 and eventually retrieved by a dog named Pickles. It was then decided by FIFA that any nation that won the World Cup three times would become the permanent owners of the trophy. Brazil won it in 1970 but it was stolen in 1983 and never found. So in 1970s, FIFA commissioned a new trophy for the 10th World Cup and Italian artist Silvio Gazzaniga's design was selected out of 53 designs that were submitted. The one we see now is actually his creative masterpiece. © Reuters So after the first one went through so many adventures and the second one got stolen, the new regulations stated that the original trophy remains with FIFA and the winners are rewarded with a gold-plated replica instead.

  10. It is Eid, and 'Race 3' has finally hit the theatres. While we are busy minding our own business, when a ton of A-listers gather together we make that our business. The star studded 'Race 3' screening saw all the who's who of Bollywood come up to show their support. We bring you the latest pictures of who was wearing what and how. Take a look for yourself and see and decide who looks yay or nay. Salman Khan First off, the Bhai himself. Salman Khan showed up in what can be called the only colour he has in his wardrobe- black. Wearing a black round neck T-shirt paired with cargo style pants(with multiple zippers), Salman finished the look with black shoes and his lucky bracelet. © Viral Bhayani Anil Kapoor Daddy Cool Anil Kapoor showed up wearing navy blue polo T-shirt with dark-wash jeans (washed at the knees) and Ascis white shoes.He finished the look with a blue jumper style jacket. © Viral Bhayani Bobby Deol Bobby's Gucci Black Cat print T-shirt is just lit AF. Combine it with those white distressed jeans and grey boots, and well, Bobby seems to be making a fashionable comeback! © Viral Bhayani Saqib Saleem The youngest star of the ensemble, Saqib was seen wearing a white round neck T-shirt with blue ripped jeans and black slip on shoes. Talk about scribble artwork, Saqib just wore it with that white open shirt . © Viral Bhayani Remo D'souza Direct Remo's all black T-shirt and Jeans look was completed with a denim jacket and brown rugged boots. Don't forget the director's black hat on top. © Viral Bhayani Sohail Khan Sohail looked like a college dude with that grey round neck T-shirt with green sleeves tucked inside those ripped jeans and boy sneakers. © Viral Bhayani Aayush Sharma Bollywood newbie Aayush's black jacket with that red hood and those Alexander McQueen sneakers are the only things that got us gawking. © Viral Bhayani Kartik Aaryan Kartik showed up wearing an encore T-shirt as seen on Bobby. Though he paired it with blue jeans, white sneakers and a denim shirt on top, we can't help but wonder what happened when Bobby and Kartik saw each other! © Viral Bhayani Ajay Devgn Ajay looked rather regal in a black kurta with white pathani salwar and juti-style sandals. Ajay surely dressed up for the screening! © Viral Bhayani
  11. Marking their first FIFA World Cup appearance since 1990, Egypt will be eager to make a strong statement in the global football showpiece. Counting on their talisman Mohamed Salah (assuming he's fit for some game time), the north African nation have a great chance of breezing past their opponents in the group stage in a bid to secure their berth in the tournament's knockouts. Drawn in Group A, Egypt will undoubtedly face an uphill battle when they begin their World Cup campaign against Uruguay. But, even if they end up losing their opening game, Egypt should still be able to see off the likes of Russia and Saudi Arabia to qualify for the knockout stages as the second team from their group. History © Reuters The Egypt National Football Team, also known as The Pharaohs, was constituted in 1920 to compete in the Summer Olympics in Belgium. The opening match of the campaign was a loss to Italy. It has been the most successful team in the Africa Cup of Nations, winning it for a total of seven times, with the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations being the most recent one. Their first participation in the tournament was a semi-final against Sudan in 1957. They went on to win the championship that year. Though Egypt is the first African country to qualify for the World Cup, they have never won the championship. They sealed their place in the 2018 World Cup after a 2-1 win over Congo. Both the goals for Egypt were scored by Mohamed Salah, with the second one being a last-minute penalty. The official draw of the 2018 FIFA World Cup was held in Moscow and it placed Egypt in Group A with Uruguay, Saudi Arabia, and the hosts Russia. Current Form © Reuters Egypt started off clumsily in the third round of the World Cup Qualifiers losing the first match 1-0 to Uganda. In the second leg played in a week's time, they defeated Uganda 1-0. Then they won 2-1 against Congo, and drew the other with Ghana, before losing 2-1 to Portugal and 0-1 to Greece. The last two draws against Kuwait and Colombia were tied with the scores being 1-1 and 0-0 respectively. Managed by Hector Cuper and captained by Essam El Hadary, the team is yet to play Belgium and Uruguay in the third round of the World Cup Qualifiers. Their squad for the World Cup has been announced. Mohamed Salah has also been included despite his shoulder injury, which he picked up in the Champions League Final in Kiev. The injury might keep him out of play for three weeks and he is likely to miss Egypt's first two games in Group A, but could return for the stage's finale to be played against Saudi Arabia on 25th June. Expectations At The World Cup © Reuters With teams like Uruguay and the hosts Russia in the same group, Egypt is less likely to top the group. It is comparatively a weaker side as it lacks experience in the big tournaments. Still, having Salah by their side and looking at the form which he is currently in, they might get a chance to top their group but will have problems in the further stages of the tournament. Their chances of winning the World Cup are very less but having a squad like this, they are very likely to be amongst the top-ranked teams in the near future. Squad Goalkeepers: Essam El Hadary (Al Taawoun, Saudi Arabia), Mohamed El-Shennawy (Al Ahly), Sherif Ekramy (Al Ahly), Mohamed Awad (Ismaily); Defenders: Ahmed Fathi (Al Ahly), Saad Samir (Al Ahly), Ayman Ashraf (Al Ahly), Mahmoud Hamdy (Zamalek), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Al Fateh, Saudi Arabia) Ahmed Hegazi and Ali Gabr (both West Bromwich Albion, England), Ahmed Elmohamady (Aston Villa, England), Karim Hafez (RC Lens, France), Omar Gaber (Los Angeles FC, USA), Amro Tarek (Orlando City, USA); Midfielders: Tarek Hamed (Zamalek), Mahmoud Abdel Aziz (Zamalek), Shikabala (Al Raed, Saudi Arabia), Abdallah Said (KuPS, Finland), Sam Morsy (Wigan Athletic, England), Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal, England), Kahraba (Al Ittihad, Saudi Arabia), Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City, England), Trezeguet (Kasimpasa, Turkey), Amr Warda (Atromitos, Greece); Forwards: Marwan Mohsen (Al Ahly), Ahmed Gomaa (Al Masry), Kouka (SC Braga, Portugal), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, England).
  12. From playing gully-cricket to EA sports '07, we screwed up somewhere. The kind of f*ck up which can't be easily reversed. There are numerous ways in which digital world has helped us but it has also made us dull-witted and superficial. We have become the generation who survives on likes and shares. Here are some of the peculiar fads which the youth are following: The 'Intellectual' Selfie Check out your timeline, people. You'll see many intellectual quotes like “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.” And what are they associated with? A selfie! A selfie with pouted lips or half a face! We have just one question. WHY? It's one thing to post a relatable quote with a beautiful landscape that you clicked but posting some deep (copied) thought with your portrait is, sorry to say, stupid. It's hard to know if this trend came first or the word 'lame.' Best Hubby (Ever) Hashtag Not being a male chauvinist but the fairer *** is the guilty one here. Maybe he's your knight in the shining armor, a great guy, as good as a man can be, but ladies, best is a comparative degree and you simply can't claim that he's the #BestHubby. (Actually, you can. But in order to do that you would have to try every other man, then the hashtag is all yours). Similar is the case with #BestHubbyEver. Ever in the hashtag means you've tried something similar before but this one is the best among all. If it's not your first marriage, then you're good to go. Otherwise, just tell him how great he is in person and not with such senseless hashtags. Wishing Parents/Loved Ones on Social Media Again, why? Find your phone, dial the number, say “Happy Birthday Mom. God has already blessed you with a child like me so, I'm not sure what can I wish for. Still, May God give you what you want,” and stop right there! There's no need to open Facebook, post a vintage picture and tell the world how much your mom means to you. There's no point in showing off your 'love' to your digital friends. It's quite a personal thing, don't you think? Likes For Likes Hashtag People, it's just…desperate! It's one thing if you're making a living out of Instagram by being some kind of blogger or a marketer but posting it for sheer attention is not normal. Such behavior is desolate if you ask us. It's fine to share your pictures on social media but thriving this much for likes, comments and shares is ill-flavored. For your own stature, please stop! If you found yourself guilty of any of the things that we mentioned, there's still time. Use social media for entertainment, not to boost your superficial egos. You don't need the world's validation, be happy from inside.
  13. After a heavy dosage of T20 cricket through the IPL, the Indian sports enthusiasts now gear up for some scintillating football action on arguably the biggest stage - FIFA World Cup - which is slated to begin from 14th June. With 32 nations vying for the top prize, the month-long tournament has plenty in store to satiate the large appetite of football fanatics. While the quadrennial event is looked upon as a great opportunity for participating nations to build on their rich footbaling history, it also acts as a pivotal platform for the young and rising stars to make a mark on one of the biggest sporting extravaganza. Whether it's a goalkeeper, defender or a midfield maestro, every player will be eager to step up for their respective sides on the world stage. Though every player - in their own respective roles - will be key to their success in the upcoming tournament, it's needless to say that it will once again be the forwards - including the strikers and wingers - who might end up deciding the fate of their teams. Arguably the most important players in a football team, forwards can single-handedly turn the tide in their favour during a game. A good goalkeeper and robust defence can surely make an impact for their team, but for that moment of magic to change the outcome of a match, it's the ferociously attacking forwards a coach will look to for inspiration and a potential result. And, the coveted tournament in Russia this month could very well witness the same. With some of the biggest strikers in attendance, the upcoming tournament is surely going to see a tough battle for the Golden Boot honour. From Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo, here's a look at the top 15 forwards who are expected to shine at the mega stage: Timo Werner (Germany) Reuters From being one of the breakthrough stars in the 2016/17 Bundesliga to becoming Germany's first-choice striker for the upcoming World Cup, Tim Werner has undoubtedly come a long way to prove his mettle in the No 9 position for his respective clubs and country. The 22-year-old began his professional journey with VFB Stuttgart at the age of just six. By the time he was 17, Werner had already become the youngest ever UEFA Europa League debutant in 2013. A few months later, he went on to become the youngest Stuttgart player ever to score in the Bundesliga and the youngest ever to net a brace in the history of the German league. After Stuttgart's relegation, Werner moved to RB Leipzig where he developed into a more rounded striker and established himself one of their driving forces in the league. A strong finisher who can move pretty fast on the counter attacks, Werner also has a knack for getting in behind defences and creating spaces in deep-lying positions which has allowed him to become Germany's first-choice striker ahead of the likes of Mario Gomez and Sandro Wagner. And, the fact that Werner walked away with the Golden Boot honour in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, highlights his ability to deliver on the big stage. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) Reuters Given his astronomical feats and envious exploits, Cristiano Ronaldo clearly needs no introduction in the footballing world. Labelled as one of the greatest players to have ever graced the game, Ronaldo boasts of the 2016 Euro trophy, five Champions League titles and a record-tying five Ballon d'Ors. Today, aged 33, the mercurial forward might not be the goal-scoring machine he once was, but his presence on the field is still good enough for his side to turn the tide in their favour during crunch matches. For a man who began his career as a trickster, Ronaldo, over his career, has become a menacing force for his opponents. A versatile attacker, Ronaldo was ostensibly right-footed, but, with training and hardwork, he has managed to become very strong with both feet. Whether with or without the ball, Ronaldo ranks amongst the world's fastest footballers. Harry Kane (England) Reuters With mercurial Gareth Southgate as their coach, England will be desperately looking to make amends for their poor showing in Brazil where they couldn't even get out of the group stages four years ago. And, if there's anyone who can make it happen for them, it's got to be their captain Harry Kane. A leader, key player and England's undoubted talisman; Kane has been on a rampage this year scoring goals at will in both Premier League and the Champions League. He's good with both his feet, absolutely menacing in the air and not afraid to fire a long-range shot to find the back of the net. His consistency to score also earned him the Golden Boot in both 2015-16 and 2016-17 Premier League seasons. It's needless to say that England's success in Russia will heavily rely on Kane. The Tottenham Hotspur star was pivotal in his side's road to Russia. He scored winning goals against Slovenia and Lithuania before securing a late equaliser against Scotland - all those goals alone accounting for seven qualifying points for the Poms. After impressing at the club level, Kane now finds himself staring at a much-needed opportunity to make a mark on the biggest stage. Thomas Muller (Germany) Reuters For a man who has 90 international caps and 38 goals for Germany, Thomas Muller clearly needs no introduction to football. Aged 28, Muller has already played in two World Cups (2010 & 2014) where he scored a total of 10 goals (combined). And, that probably explains why he is guaranteed a spot in the ever-competitive German team when they begin their title defence in Russia. Irrespective of his unconventional brand of football, Muller presents a potent goalscoring threat, especially at major tournaments. While he may lack physical strength for a forward, Muller adequately makes up for it with his pace, technique, awareness, tactical intelligence and positioning. Majority of Muller's goals have been attained through his ability to find gaps in the opposition defence. Given the fact that he clinched Golden Boot (2010) and Silver Boot (2014) awards in the last editions, Germany will hope that Muller's knack for making the big tournaments his own by consistently scoring goals continues in Russia. For someone who describes his own role as Raumdeuter (an interpreter of space), Muller will surely not surprise anyone if he walks away with the Golden Boot award, yet again. Lionel Messi (Argentina) Reuters After losing a third final in three years with his national team, Lionel Messi sent shockwaves across the footballing world by announcing his retirement in 2016. Ofcourse, being an emotional decision, Messi's retirement didn't last long and he returned to play for Argentina to the sheer joy of his fans. Two years later, everyone's asking the same question: "Can Messi win the elusive World Cup trophy this time?" Whether Argentina comes out on top or not in Russia, Messi doesn't really need to win a World Cup (though it'll be great if he does) to prove how great a player he is. Despite his short stature, Messi's lower centre of gravity has given him greater agility to move quickly and evade opposing tackles. His dribbling skills are phenomenal and when he's not busy finding the back of the net, Messi can be found setting up his teammates for crucial goals. The road to glory in Russia will require something similar or maybe more from Messi. But, for all his might, Messi is undoubedly one of those star players whose presence on the pitch alone is capable of aiding any team. "This is Messi's Argentina, not mine," coach Jorge Sampaoli's comments further highlight just how important he is for his team. Sergio Aguero (Argentina) Reuters On the back of great passing ability, tactical intelligence and vision, Sergio Aguero has undoubtedly established himself as one of the best strikers in the world. Though he's naturally a right-footed player, Aguero is more than capable of striking with his left foot. He can finish well both inside and outside the area with enough power and accuracy in his shots. However, the last year hasn't been too exciting for someone as talented as Aguero. His troublesome knee injury denied him enough game time at Manchester City, further denting his form during the World Cup qualifiers. Struggling to nail down a starting place, Aguero failed to improve Argentina's wayward finishing in the qualifiers, scoring just one goal in eight appearances. But, despite all that, Aguero will still be pivotal in Jorge Sampaoli's tactics in Russia. And, the fact that the 30-year-old is still chasing his maiden world finals goal in his third consecutive appearance in the tourney, might just fuel his hunger to make an impact this year. That also explains why Sampaoli still sees Aguero as Lionel Messi's ideal strike partner, just as he was at the U-20 World Cup, thirteen years ago. Robert Lewandowski (Poland) Reuters For someone who is often regarded as one of the best centre forwards in the world, it's not hard to guess that Poland's play will pretty much revolve around Robert Lewandowski. The undisputed superstar of the Polish team and arguably one of the highly-anticipated players in the upcoming tournament, Lewy will be seen carrying the hopes of his nation when they travel to Russia. An outright attacker, Lewandowski is a clever dribbler, great in the air, capable of scoring with either foot and very difficult to shrug off the ball. Making full use of those traits, the 29-year-old etched his name in the history books when he went past Wlodzimierz Lubanski's 48-goal mark to become Poland's all-time leading scorer after a hat-trick over Armenia in 2017. Given his exploits, it's not really surprising to see Lewandowski being hailed as his country's biggest sporting idol. And, going into the mega event, Poland's number nine will be expected to rise to the occasion and drive his team to great heights in his maiden appearance at the FIFA World Cup. Neymar (Brazil) Reuters Back in 2014, a young Neymar carried the burden of Brazil on his shoulders as his nation played host to the FIFA World Cup. While his performance was still better than his compatriots, Brazil's dismal show including the shambolic drubbing against Geermany, was an outing the Selecao would surely want to forget. Four years on, Brazil is completely a different team and Neymar is full of experience which puts them in contention for the coveted World title. It's needless to say that going into this year's World Cup, Neymar will once again be the main man for Brazil. And, the fact that their coach Tite has managed to provide Neymar the star status and a position of responsibility withhin the team, promises a better showing this time around. He might have failed to score in the qualifiers prior to Tite's arrival in the dugout, but Neymar seems to have made amends with six goals and eight assists to his name under their new coach. For a man who is capable of playing as a central striker, second striker and even a winger; Neymar has rightly earned the label of a 'true phenomenon'. Playing as a left-sided forward, Neymar offers pace and energy, while his playmaking skills are second to none. In Russia, Brazil will expect their star man to lead from the front, and we won't be surprised to see this man deliver on the biggest stage. Mohamed Salah (Egypt) Reuters Whether you've followed football lately or not, the name Mohamed Salah would really have been hard to miss this season. Arguably the most globally-acclaimed player in the Egypt squad, Salah has won over Europe with his goal-scoring ability lately. For a man who began playing with Arab Contractors, Salah has undoubtedly come a long way to become a key figure at Liverpool on the back of a prolific 2017/18 season. A quick, hard-working and tactical player, Salah has a good technique and great eye for goal. He is predominantly known for his speed, dribbling skills and ball control. A versatile forward, Salah primarily plays as a winger on the right flank - a position that allows hum to cut into the centre onto his stronger left foot and either shoot for goal, or initiate quick exchanges with other players to create a scoring opportunity. All of those attributes were in full display during Egypt's qualifying games for the World Cup. The 25-year-old scored five goals for his national team in six games during the final round of qualifiers. Two of those goals came in the crucial meeting with Congo which sealed Egypt's qualification. As the tournament begins, Salah will once again be expected to lead from the front and help the Pharaohs secure their first-ever berth in the knockout stage. Eden Hazard (Belgium) Reuters Finishing fifth in the Premier League, Chelsea might have been forced to endure a forgetful outing in 2017/18 season, but there's no denying to the plethora of talent Eden Hazard brings to the table. A natural-born footballer, Hazard is a player whose impeccable football skills are capable of filling stadiums and inspiring youngsters to take up the game. For a man who is capable of playing either as an attacking midfielder or a winger, Hazard looks comfortable on the ball and has established himself as an elusive dribbler. Seemingly immune to pressure, the 27-year-old offers dazzling skills and can play the game with remarkable calm and ease. After a bit of an underwhelming FIFA World Cup debut in 2014, Hazard will be eager to make the most of his second chance to shine at the biggest stage the sport has to offer. And, despite the presence of big stars in his team, expect Hazard to make a mark in Russia.
  14. I am sure that you're aware of the fact that your body needs the energy to digest the food that you eat. Therefore, your body burns calories while it makes an effort to digest it. So, wouldn't it make more sense to consume more 'calorie-less' foods if your target is to lose fat and weight? After all, the more calorie deficit you create, the more reason you give your body to utilize all the stored fat reserves in the body. Though there isn't any food item that has zero calories as such, there are certain food items that have less number of calories than what your body needs to burn. Following is the list of such food items: 1) Beets © Pixabay Easily available at your nearby vegetable market, beets serve as a very good option to be taken as a part of a salad or to prepare them as cooked vegetables.

A cup of 70 grams of a serving of mushrooms gives you only 15 calories. Its easy availability also makes it a good choice for diet conscious people. 6) Zucchini © Pixabay Another low-calorie vegetable that's commonly used in soups and salads; Zucchini has only 15 calories in one serving of 120 grams.

  15. It was just two days ago when the world was shook by those Rs. 48,000 jogger pants that Ranbir Kapoor casually decided to wear for a basic trim. The said joggers also caused a major frenzy in the world and have given us many sleepless nights. Well, those joggers are back, but this time Ranbir upped the cool quotient with his fit (thank God!). © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani On the first occasion, Ranbir wore those Balenciaga black jogger pants for a visit to the salon. However, this time around, the all-black avatar is back (with some changes of course!) and it looks like Ranbir just walked out of the sets of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' giving us those Ayaan vibes! (#throwbackthursday) © Viral Bhayani Stepping out of his car, Ranbir can be seen wearing an oversized black round neck T-shirt, paired with the infamous pair of Balenciaga joggers. This time, instead of the beanie, we get to see him in a Homburg-style. Talk about evolution, people! He completes the look with a pair of round, thin rim framed, semi-black tinted sunglasses and a pair of OG Nike Jordans. © Viral Bhayani While we were still contemplating as to what Ranbir was thinking while wearing those joggers at the barber's, he had a good comeback planned for us! Though we are still unsure as to what occasion were the joggers worn around this time, Kapoor has definitely gone from looking like a rich kid who ran out of pocket-money, to now looking like a rich kid who just got richer! Takeaway: You can always revamp your look with the same pair of clothing!

  17. Being a midfielder is perhaps the toughest position in football. Yes, people might argue that each position comes with its own list of difficulties, but everyone should agree that the midfield is where the game is won or lost… most of the time. With teams like Italy, Chile and the Netherlands missing out on this years edition, we're not going to see players like Thiago Motta, Arturo Vidal or Arjen Robben. But, that in no way means there's a lack of talent on offer. This is the biggest football event in the world, after all. So, let's take a look at 11 midfield maestros who will be vying for top honours at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia: 1. Andres Iniesta (Spain) © Reuters Spain has the kind of line-up which could win the World Cup. This is their chance to pick up a second World Cup this decade and Andres Iniesta is going to be at the center of this for sure. He's been one of the country's key players for a while now and has also been called 'the most talented player in the history of Spain by his international teammate Xavi. 2. Angel Di Maria (Argentina) © Reuters It's tough to shine when you're in the same team as Lionel Messi. But, it seems Angel has put his Manchester United days behind him and found his form at Paris Saint-Germain. The World Cup is the perfect opportunity for Angel to show he still has some football left in him at 30, as he looks to move to an Atletico Madrid side that's reinventing itself under Diego Simeone. 3. Dele Alli (England) © Reuters Will he be another Steven Gerrard or will he end up like Jack Wilshere? That's the big question when it comes to Dele Alli. So far, he's proved the critics wrong at every turn. But, will he be good enough to carry England to their second World Cup trophy? It's a tall ask, even for this 22-year-old footballer from Milton Keynes. 4. Gylfi Sigurdsson (Iceland) © Reuters One of the most popular Icelandic footballers ever, Gylfi has made quite a name for himself in the English Premier League over the years. He was instrumental in Iceland's success at Euro 2016 and he's going to be the focal point of their attack this year round as well. But, if there's one thing we learned about Iceland at Euro 2016 though, it's that they don't rely on just one player. 5. James Rodriguez (Colombia) © Reuters The Colombian football team that's going to feature at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, is arguably one of the strongest teams they've ever fielded. At the last World Cup, James was the top goal scorer with 6 in 5 games. He'll be looking to better that performance this time around for sure. 6. Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium) © Reuters One of the strongest sides at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Belgium have a number of midfielders that have the potential to be match winners. Right at the top of that list is Premier League title winner, Kevin De Bruyne. This is going to be De Bruyne's first major test in what is, the biggest football contest in the world. He's come a long way from Gent, that's for sure. 7. Luka Modric (Croatia) © Reuters Croatia are the proud owners of a 3-0 win over Germany at the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Modric was just 12 at the time. But, ever since he made it into the squad for the 2006 World Cup, there's been no doubt about his place. He is the centerpiece around which the team operates. It's not a long shot to say the team's success will depend on Modric's form at the event. 8. Mesut Ozil (Germany) © Reuters When you're a part of the number one team in football going into the World Cup, there is already too much expected from you as a player. But, pressure isn't something new for Mesut Ozil. A lot of fans aren't happy with the player right now for getting a photo clicked with Turkish President Erdogan and it's pretty obvious he's going to face some heat heading into the tournament. A couple of good performances and he should be well on his way to redeeming himself. 9. Paul Pogba (France) © Reuters The second most expensive player in the world, Pogba has a lot riding on him at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. France have the kind of squad which could win the World Cup and if that happens, Pogba is undoubtedly going to have a major role to play. He's no Zinedine Zidane and is nowhere near the best player at the World Cup, but if he gets going, he'll certainly prove why he deserves that £89,000,000 price tag. 10. Philippe Coutinho (Brazil) © Reuters Philippe's name is in the list of players that could be vying for the Golden Boot at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. While Coutinho debuted for Brazil back in 2010, this is the first time he's going to be playing at the World Cup. A lot of eyes are going to be on the prolific attacking midfielder and with Neymar's fitness in question, he may just end up being the talisman for Brazil if they are to win a 6th title. 11. Toni Kroos (Germany) © Reuters Toni Kroos is the kind of player who's easy to miss. He doesn't stand out, he doesn't score a ton of goals, he doesn't create a lot of chances, but he's one of the best midfielders in the business right now. Why? When he is on the pitch, he is the one controlling the game. There's no two ways about it. But you'll never notice it. That's what makes Toni Kroos so special.
  18. SRK's much-awaited movie 'Zero' is soon going to see the light of the day. Turns out that King Khan playing a dwarf is not the only highlight of the movie. The movie will also see a mini reunion of Salman and Shah Rukh. A few stills from the teaser got leaked and were enough to leave fans in a frenzy. © red chillies entertainment © red chillies entertainment As per the rumoured storyline, SRK will play the role of a man who is a big fan of Katrina Kaif. Perhaps this is the song where he meets Salman and Katrina in the movie. 'Zero' also stars Anushka Sharma in a pivotal role and will release on 21st December. Earlier a small teaser was released where it was shown that SRK's character is talking about how he might be a zero, but he increases the value of anyone if he stands behind them. This is his never-seen-before avatar and is also the last movie in which we will see Sridevi make an appearance. SRK (Bauaa) will dance with @BeingSalmanKhan in the boxing ring & will see salman picking bauaa up & kiss him on the cheeks. #Zeroteaser will break the internet & will create digital records for sure. #Zero — Sumit kadel (@SumitkadeI) June 12, 2018 SRK & Salman's Chemistry, SRK's Expressions & Madness & Dance Moves & Music & Everything.

  19. The world of Bollywood is all about inspirations, rip-offs, and blatant copying. Over the last few years, B-town has effortlessly and shamelessly copied the content from global cinema time and again. Be it music, storyline, camera angle or poster, each and everything is just picked from a certain place and replaced with our popular faces. So much for originality, we must say. The booming industry of Bollywood literally owes a lot of its inspiration to the West. Admiring someone's work and getting inspired by it has always been the case but now makers have taken it to a whole new level. Such instances just make us wonder about the condition of Bollywood and for how long we can continue doing things like these. When the poster of 'Ra One' or 'Rowdy Rathore' was launched, we couldn't help but focus on the uncanny resemblance it shared with popular Hollywood flicks. But, for ages now, Bollywood has been copying posters without even considering the need to modify it a bit. Bringing you 20 such movie posters that are just “inspired” from Hollywood! Baahubali 2: The Conclusion © Twitter When the poster of the film was released we indeed loved it until we noticed that it has a striking resemblance to 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage'. If you thought this was the first time, let us tell you 'Baahubali' has found its inspiration from the other side of the world multiple times. © Twitter Remember the poster of Prabhas standing tall on an elephant? Well, that was inspired by Tony Jaa's 'Ong Bak 2' poster. Ghajini © Twitter Yes, the movie was one of the biggest hits when it was released and people couldn't get over the movie. But at the same time, they were also disappointed with the fact that how it looked so much like the poster of 'Hulk'. Ra One © Twitter Well, there was nothing worthy enough to talk about this Shah Rukh Khan movie except that its poster was an exact rip-off of famous Hollywood film 'Batman Begins'. PK © Twitter Aamir Khan's 'PK' created a buzz for a lot of reasons but one of the things was how the poster looked so much like an album cover of a Portuguese musician named Quim Barreiros. The original cover was released in 1973 showed Quim holding an accordion to hide his bare essentials. Ek Villian © Twitter In the case of this Shraddha Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh movie, 'Step Up' and 'Face Off' happened. Facepalm! © Twitter Murder 2 © Twitter Yes, you guessed it right; it is a legit copy of 'Anti Christ'. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara © Twitter Well, this movie did give us various friendship goals but at the same time it looked a lot similar to 'Lords of Dogtown'. Kites © Twitter What came first: 'Notebook' or 'Kites'? Ugly Aur Pagli © Twitter Just love the way Indian makers get away with piracy! Murder 3 © Twitter When art is murdered again and again! But brownie points for adding those thorns. Gulaal © Twitter Remember 'The Shield'? Yeah, you know what we are talking about! Rowdy Rathore © Twitter A remake of a Telugu super flick and poster copied from 'The Replacement Killers'. All hail India's originality. Anjaana Anjaani © Twitter Is it just us or do you even see the genius mind who copied this poster from 'An Education'? Hiss © Twitter King Arthur didn't appreciate this for sure! Mausam © Twitter This is how you destroy a classic! Sonam Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor, we love you, but this could have been avoided. Hulchul What fun copying 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'; isn't it? © Twitter Aitraaz © Twitter An amazing film no doubt; but the poster was copied from 'The Graduate'. Agent Vinod © Twitter So much difference! P.S. To all the copycats, let's try being original for a change.
  20. In over 70 years, the NBA has produced some breathtaking performances. Also basketball, like all sports, is a game of records, and there are bound to be some which are just out of the ordinary. After all while no player admits to playing for records, it is the ultimate aim in any sporting field. Here's a look at 9 such instances where the benchmark is so high, that going past it is going to take some serious effort. In fact, we may not see them broken in our lifetime. 1. Highest single-season scoring average - 50.36 © Thinkstock/Getty Images Wilt Chamberlain holds the record for Philadelphia Warriors in the 1961-62 season. Nobody has come close. Kobe Bryant's 35.4 points per game in 2005-06 is the second best. 2. Most points in a single game - 100 © Thinkstock/Getty Images It's Wilt Chamberlain again. He scored 100 points in 1962 for Philadelphia Warriors vs New York Knicks. Kobe Bryant is the closest with 81 points in 2006. 3. Most career rebounds - 23,924 © Thinkstock/Getty Images Wilt Chamberlain is the man with the records. This record is not going anywhere soon. Dwight Howard is the highest among active players with 13,101. 4. Most career assists - 15,806 © Thinkstock/Getty Images John Stockton looks like your average guy on the street and yet he was one of the greatest point guards in NBA history. Among active players only Chris Paul comes close and he has only 8,708 to his name. 5. Most career steals - 3,625 © Thinkstock/Getty Images John Stockton again has his name in the history books. This record too looks out of reach as Chris Paul on 2008 is the only one close enough to get it. 6. Most consecutive NBA titles - 8 © Thinkstock/Getty Images The honour for this goes to Boston Celtics. They won all titles from 1957 to 1964. In 1965 and 1966 they made it to the finals, meaning 10 straight final appearances. 7. Most career NBA titles as a player - 11 © Thinkstock/Getty Images Bill Russell holds this record. Nobody is anywhere within striking distance to this one and it's safe to say this one is going to stay for a long time. 8. Most wins in a single season - 73 © Thinkstock/Getty Images Golden State Warriors set a new benchmark when they achieved this feat in 2015-16. Chicago Bulls with 72 had the record in 1995-96. 9. Most career points - 38,387 © Thinkstock/Getty Images Kareem Abdul-Jabbar may have retired in 1989, but his record of most career points remains at the top. Among active players Dirk Nowitzki, is the closest with 31,187.
  21. The trailer of 'Dhadak' launched amidst a grand public hype with fresh faces, who are already famous in the industry. Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are making their Bollywood debut with this remake of 'Sairat', produced by Karan Johar himself. Even though the trailer has garnered mixed reactions from the audience, one particular section of the audience is absolutely unhappy. Turns out fans of the original move 'Sairat' are simply livid. They are asserting that 'Dhadak' is not the remake they were expecting and are being very vocal in expressing their ire.

RIP Sairat. #Dhadak — ajinkya ketkar (@ketkarajinkya) June 12, 2018 When you take story from Sairat, colors from Raanjhanna, set locations inspired from bhansali and still can't give viewers something to root on.#DhadakTrailer — Anurag (@anurag__mishra) June 11, 2018 And then people had a few questions for Karan Johar as well. #DhadakTrailer pic.twitter.com/RdTVZEls9U — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) June 11, 2018 Karan Johar : movie bana lo Director : kaise? K Jo : star kids, good costumes, great location, script utha lenge koi purani Director : acting? K Jo : woh next movie mein dekhenge#Dhadak — Pakchikpak Raja Babu (@HaramiParindey) June 11, 2018 The kids in Stranger things can do much better acting than Ishaan and Jhanvi in Dhadak.#Nepotism #DhadakTrailer — Aman (@TheAlteria) June 11, 2018 If you've not watched the original trailer of 'Sairat' then it's not too late, as it is a brilliant movie indeed. While Janhvi and Ishaan might prove their mettle and justify their fresh pairing in 'Dhadak', 'Sairat' fans continue to stay offended. We wonder if they will take back their words after watching the movie.
  22. Imagine this: you're stepping out in a T-shirt, a pair of sweatpants and some dope-arse sneakers. Now, add an expensive (international) label to this narrative and you'd arrive upon Diljit Dosanjh's recent outfit. Point being, at the trailer launch of his upcoming movie 'Soorma' —a biography based on the life of hockey player, Sandeep Singh, releasing on the 13th of July — our shutterbugs spotted Dosanjh in a rather easy, breezy combo of sorts. Though, the usual drill involves most actors opting for formal or semi-formal gear for their movie's trailer launch, Diljit was quite the rebel in this case. See for yourself! © Viral Bhayani Give yourself a moment. If you thought this day would finally come, when wearing oversized T-shirts and baggy sweatpants would become mainstream, let's inform you: this is that day. Diljit has finally paved the way for this big style move. Wearing a Balenciaga Homme-embroidered cotton-piqué striped polo shirt paired with the most relaxed bottoms and dad-like sneakers, Diljit just showed us that the knack of wearing oversized wear and pairing it right really does run in his blood. Let's not forget his pink turban and that gold timepiece. © Viral Bhayani © Balenciaga Talk about out-of-bed outfits, and Diljit clearly, has taken the trophy home. Only difference? He's ensured that the out-of-bed vibe doesn't look very sloppy, after all. Big ups! As for the palette of the ensemble, the colour aren't extraordinary in any way, yet, simply cool enough for the Indian summer. Plus, the fabric of the polo is quite breathable, so thankfully, the actor surely didn't drench himself in sweat here. © Viral Bhayani And though, there's a lot to rave about this ensemble, our favourite piece has to be the sweatpants. For one, the fabric looks like a denim hybrid (woah!, is pairing well with the striped polo T-shirt and is also, helping maintain the sanctity of Diljit's Balenciaga sneakers. While we often associate baggy pants with just a lazy Sunday, Diljit finally proves that it's time to step out of his house in baggy clothing. © Balenciaga However, while this may look like Diljit has just gotten out of bed, the price of his Balenciaga kicks will make you lose your sleep. They're priced at a whooping $895 (approx. Rs. 60,300), after all. All in all, looks like, while the singer/actor's capable of setting new rules of fashion, he knows how to afford it too
  23. Everybody in the gym has a different take on training for hypertrophy aka 'muscle size badana'. Most gym bros do what has been etched in stone by desi gym trainers. They work one muscle group once a week. You might know it as the 'bro split'. This comes down from old school bodybuilding wisdom and is being passed on till date. Just because the pros did it back in the day, we should do it too, right? No, absolutely wrong. First things First, You Aren't A Professional Bodybuilder. Stop Training Like One. © Breakingmuscle While idolizing a professional bodybuilder is all good, trying to mimic his training and nutrition is outright dumb. Why? Firstly, everyone is built differently. Your genetics are not like his. You process food differently than he does. His musculature and bone structure aren't like yours. The human body is like finger prints—nobody is alike. Secondly, most professionals you idolize are on steroids. Once on steroids, the game changes entirely. Your muscle protein synthesis doubles up, nutrition partitioning becomes better and muscle recovery goes through the roof. Sum it all up and you grow bigger and stronger in a very short time. Yes of course, all this comes with side effects that 90% of you will never be able to cope with. Hence, stop mimicking the bodybuilders. How Muscle Growth Works For Natural Guys Building muscle naturally takes time, a long time in fact. You have to be patient. Sometimes you have to bear with looking a little fluffy and spend longer time 'not' training than you would have thought. More work doesn't mean more muscle. 1) Train Each Muscle When It Is Ready To Be Trained. Never Sooner And Never Later. The above line was popularized by world renowned powerlifter and PhD Fred Hatfield. Decipher the line and you will come to a conclusion that different muscle groups recover differently. Now a ton of researches have proven that it takes round about 24-72 hours for every muscle to fully recover. Taking this into account, every natural lifter is ready to train the same muscle group after 24-72 hours. Then why only train a muscle group once a week, when you can reap twice as much benefit by hitting it twice a week? Likewise, if you hammer a muscle group that requires 72 or more hours of rest in less than 24 hours, you are just limiting your progress. Muscle like the abs, forearms and rear deltoids recover rather quickly while, pectorals and hamstrings can take longer. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2) Nothing Is Set In Stone. Identify Your Recovery Time. Leading from the point above, most natural lifters fail to grow big because they don't recover enough because they don't pay attention to each muscle recovery time. It's all in your hands, pay attention to your training and see how well you recover. You have to find a middle ground as to where you find yourself recovering well while not training too much and training too little. 3) An Understanding That Can Be Drawn Keeping In Mind The Above Points a) You can hit muscle like the biceps, lateral delts, rear delts and the calves at least 4 times a week. b) Keep chest, quads, hamstrings and front deltoids for 2 days a week. c) Back can be hit 3 times a week. Note- This is just a general guideline. Remember, nothing is set in stone. 4) Sample Workout Monday- Chest, Shoulders, Back Tuesday- Off Wednesday- Legs And Arms Thursday- Off Friday- Chest, Shoulder, Back Saturday- Legs And Arms Pro tip- Pick the big lifts in the above workout for every muscle group and focus on progressive overload with correct form.

  25. E3 2018 is currently taking place in Los Angeles, where major publishers reveal their latest games for 2018 and the following years. The video game trade show is known for showcasing new games and hardware, that will eventually become a part of the everyday life of gamers. Microsoft and Electronic Arts showcased a new technology at their press conferences, to showcase streaming services that will be coming to various devices. These streaming services will be able to offer console-level games that were not possible on smartphones previously. © Electronic Arts Smartphones and their GPUs are often limited to offer a complete gaming experience due to many constraints like the silicon chip itself. This has prevented publishers from releasing AAA level games on smartphones that may be overcome, thanks to the new streaming services by Microsoft and EA. Even though both companies did not reveal the launch date of the service or pricing details, one thing is certain, it is coming in the near future. Microsoft's Phil Spencer confirmed last night that the company's cloud technology team is working hard to build a platform that will let smartphone users play games with console-level graphics quality. Spencer said Microsoft is “dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play; your Xbox, your PC and your phone.” EA's teaser was somewhat similar, where the service will host games like FIFA, Battlefield and other titles on its streaming service. © Electronic Arts The smartphone gaming business is very lucrative as the player base is bigger than traditional gamers on consoles. It will not only make games more accessible to audiences all over the world, it will also result in huge profits for the two companies. Imagine playing FIFA 18 on your smartphone that works exactly how it does on consoles and PCs. The new streaming service will be a paradigm-shifting move for the industry as a whole and will take the game to a whole new level. Will it be practical? It most definitely will be. Indian telecom companies have already started investing heavily in broadband and OTA services that will make game streaming possible. It's quite possible that these gaming services will rely on 5G networking technologies which will be rolled out soon in various countries. It's no secret that gaming streaming services will use up a lot of data which can be problematic for Indian smartphone users. Regardless of all the hurdles that will be faced by these companies, it sure is a move that a lot of people will love and appreciate.
