  1. After making us wait for almost two years, the final season of 'Game Of Thrones', one of the greatest shows ever made, is going to drop in a few hours. Finally that time is here when people will exit all their Whatsapp groups, delete their social media apps and stop answering phone calls, JUST to avoid getting any spoilers. This is the time when your real fandom will be tested. HBO While everyone is busy asking, "Who will sit on the throne?" if there was one for the greatest fan, we know who would sit on it. This guy who recreated the dragon egg from scratch and made it look better than the one used in the show. YouTube This might be a 5-minute long video, but the hard work that went behind making this is over 40 hours. This dragon egg was made by Rextorn Metalwork, a design shop in Poland. YouTube This guy, whom I will now call the biggest fan of GOT, used various techniques like repousse and metal spinning, to turn a copper sheet into a gorgeous and flawless dragon egg. There is honestly no dearth of talent in the world and almost every other day, someone somewhere is proving it right.
  2. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly are considered to be two of the most successful skippers of the Indian cricket team, especially in the modern era, when India truly came out to become a giant in the world of the game and in the hearts of its followers. Having said that, the two leaders are completely opposite to each other when it comes to their characteristics and their nature in general. While Dhoni is known to keep his cool even under extremely testing conditions Ganguly was famous for his exceptionally outspoken and energetic attitude. But after the recent incidents of the Indian Premier League matchup between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, Dhoni's antics have blurred the line between 'Captain Cool' and Dada as the leader of the Men in Blue. On one hand, we have Sourav Ganguly's 17-year-old iconic moment of extreme joy in which the Kolkata-born took off his shirt and swirled it around in celebration of his team's victory against the notorious English team at the Lords Stadium during the 2002 Natwest series. Ashamed of his way of celebrating the win, Ganguly even addressed the incident to journalist Barkha Dutt he said: “Everybody says that it's the most iconic moment. But I wouldn't do it again. My daughter sees it asks why did you do that and I say because I was happy. I came from a very conservative and shy Bengali family. It just happened in the heat of the moment.” On the other hand, someone who was considered to be cool as a cucumber turned out to have a nasty temper. After the umpire's decision to revert from the 'no-ball' call, Dhoni left behind his persona as 'Captain Cool' and demanded an honest answer from the officials as he charged into the field from the dugout, after being ousted by Ben Stokes a delivery before. When MS Dhoni lost his cool Boss..... pic.twitter.com/v4wJ7r98pf — Shakti Solanki (@shaktisolanki00) April 12, 2019 Having said that, people are having a tough time choosing between the two iconic moments of Indian cricket: Ganguly - Shirt wave at Lord's balcony Dhoni - Storming the field at Jaipur Kohli - ??? — Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) April 12, 2019 Ganguly's Legendary shirt waving was proud moment which was an answer to Flintoff, While Dhoni storming at field is no GOOD moment Kohli - Showing middle finger to Australian crowd — Harsh Bhatt (@IamH4rshBhatt) April 12, 2019 FYI..Ganguly's shirt wave >>>>> Dhoni storming into field. — rohit ranjan رÙÛت (@rht_ranjan) April 12, 2019 Taking shirt off and running through Oxford Street on 14th of july — Chetan JS (@jschetan) April 12, 2019 Lords — VaiBhAv (@vaibysays) April 12, 2019
  3. Sleep is very important for human function. Not just from the bodybuilding perspective but also from the perspective of good health and performance. © Getty Images Poor sleeping habits can not only sabotage your fitness goals but it will also be harmful to your overall health in the long run. Now, there are various sleep boosting supplements available out there in the marking claiming to be effective sleep enhancers but I am going to discuss only the ones that actually work. Disclaimer: None of these supplements is a pure recommendation. They are just suggestions. Consult your doctor before taking any of these. 1. Magnesium Magnesium performs various essential biological functions including neurotransmitter synthesis. However, due to poor eating patterns people these days fail to take the recommended daily dosage of magnesium through diet. This eventually leads to various behavioural changes like stress and anxiety. Research conducted at the University of Geneva established a possible correlation between magnesium levels and sleep quality. In this research, subjects who supplemented with magnesium and whose magnesium levels were higher in the blood were able to have a more restful sleep as compared to people who were deficient. Thus, magnesium supplements can actually help you to enhance your quality of sleep. Start with a small dosage of 200mg to see the tolerance of your body and then increase the dosage according to your needs. 2. Ashwagandha According to research published in U.S national library of Medicine, Ashwagandha leaves contain 'triethylene glycol' which is a compound that has been found very useful in inducing sleep in humans. Another important finding of this study was that supplementing ashwagandha also increases the quality of sleep as subjects who took Ashwagandha supplements were able to go in the 'deep sleep' mode. Another advantage of Ashwagandha as a sleep supplement is that the body does not become addicted to it. You can stop taking Ashwagandha once you don't feel the need to take it anymore. © Getty Images 3. Valerian Valerian is a sleep-boosting herb that is more commonly used in the United States and Europe. However, these days you can find valerian herb supplements in the Indian online market too. According to a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, valerian has proven benefits to enhance the quality of sleep. These benefits come with no side effects like morning hangovers. Valerian is a potent herb thus you want to make sure that you start consuming it only in small amounts. 4. Melatonin Melatonin is a common over the counter drug that is generally prescribed to get rid of jet lag and to manage any kind of sleep disturbances. It is helpful in managing unbalanced circadian rhythms from jet lag. According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine, evidence exists to prove that melatonin may reduce the time it takes for people to fall asleep. However, melatonin is not a supplement that you can play around with. If you are taking concentrated melatonin alone, make sure to start with a low dosage. Compound supplements that contain melatonin as one of the components contain melatonin in small doses only which you may not worry about. Though the above supplements can help you to increase the quality of your sleep, it is always better to let your body do its routine activities without any supplements. Use any of these supplements to manage your sleep and discontinue when you feel that your sleeping cycles have become better.

  4. Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone XR, an 'affordable' iPhone that shared many of the same hardware features as the more expensive XS and XS Max. The iPhone XR turned out to be our favorite iPhone of the bunch last year, and you can read our review here. Now, Samsung has launched the new Galaxy S10e which follows the same footsteps. The Galaxy S10e is a compact phone that shares a lot of hardware advancements added in the standard Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. So, we decided to compare them & find out which one's a better affordable flagship. Here's how they compare: Display © YouTube Samsung's Galaxy S10e features a 5.8-inch 2280 x 1080 OLED display, whereas Apple's iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch 1792 x 828 LCD display. Both, on paper and in the real world, the Galaxy S10e is a better-looking display. Samsung's OLED is crisp, bright, and vibrant, just like any other flagship phone's display. That's not to say that the iPhone XR's display is bad by any means. It's one of the best LCD panels around, but it can't quite match the OLED display. When it comes to the cutouts, the Galaxy S10e has a punch-hole design, which Samsung likes to call an 'Infinity-O' display. The iPhone XR, on the other hand, uses the same notch as the iPhone XS and the XS Max as it packs the same FaceID system. Both are equally intrusive when it comes to content consumption like videos, etc. but again, the Galaxy S10e display's looks more modern and just better in person. Winner: Samsung Galaxy S10e Performance © YouTube The iPhone XR is powered by Apple's A12 bionic chip, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S10e model, which we used, is powered by an Exynos 9820 SoC. Apple's iPhones typically beat Samsung's when it comes to processor performance. Even the Snapdragon 855 SoC is no match. Of course, you won't find much of a difference in everyday tasks, but the A12 Bionic is a beast. As for the RAM and storage, the Galaxy S10e is equipped with 6GB RAM, double the RAM in the iPhone XR. It sounds like a small number of paper, but Apple is traditionally known to make better use of low RAM, thanks to the deep integration between hardware and software. When it comes to the storage options, the base variant of the Galaxy S10e comes with 128GB storage & the iPhone XR's base variant comes with 64GB. BTW, you can also expand the storage via a microSD card on the Galaxy S10e, but you can't do that with the iPhone XR. Winner: iPhone XR Biometrics © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Apple's FaceID system is the best in the business, and seriously there's no match to it. Even the Galaxy S10e has a facial recognition system, but Apple's system is more reliable and secure. But thankfully, the Galaxy S10e has a physical fingerprint scanner on the side. Yes, it's a deviation from Galaxy S10 devices that have an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but that's better because the Galaxy S10e's scanner is more fast and reliable than that of the standard S10 variants. Both phones, however, have strong points when it comes to biometrics. With the Galaxy S10e you get a physical scanner, whereas the iPhone XR has the reliable FaceID. So, you can't go wrong with either of them. Winner: It's a tie. Camera © YouTube Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e have scaled back on the rear camera to, you know, cut down on cost. However, the iPhone XR uses a single-lens camera while the Galaxy S10e has a dual-lens camera. The S10e features both wide and ultra-wide lenses, while the iPhone XR sports only a single wide-angle lens, with which it can also do portraits. We found both cameras to be equally good. With iPhone XR, you're looking at a typical iPhone camera with a very familiar interface. The images look very crisp, natural and true-to-life, which is always something we all can appreciate. With the Galaxy S10e, you'll get a typical Samsung camera which captures, you know, more vibrant and saturated (sometimes over-saturated) images, which one may or may not necessarily like. Unlike the iPhone XR which has a software portrait mode that doesn't work pets, food or anything but people, the Galaxy S10e can handle it all. It doesn't have any limitations. Add an ultra-wide lens to that, you have a very capable camera in your pockets. Winner: It's a tie, again. The Final Say © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e, as you can see, have ups and downs of their own. Apple is offering FaceID, the powerful A12 Bionic chip, great software/ hardware integration, etc. while Samsung is offering a dual-lens rear camera setup, a great OLED display, and expandable storage. However, there are other things to consider like the fact that the Galaxy S10e is a more compact phone, it runs Android instead of iOS, etc. So, at the end of the day, it comes to personal preference. But if you want to an affordable device that packs all the modern day tech, then you really can't go wrong with either of them.
  5. The past two days of the Indian Premier League has seen some rather bizarre series of events taking place that have changed the complete scenario of the matches with outcomes absolutely different from what the viewers were expecting. We are talking about the matches that took place between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Friday, and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday. You did not even have to look carefully to realise how similar the two games got in the final overs of the second innings, respectively. Let's start by talking about the game between RCB and KKR. During the 17th over Bangalore's bowling, it was Mohammad Siraj who bowled his second dangerous beamer of the match and had to give up the rest of the over with four deliveries left. During this situation, RCB captain, Virat Kohli was standing at the boundary, waiting for the situation to untangle itself. It was only after the umpire had taken the ball away from Siraj that the RCB captain ran down to the pitch to decide what needs to happen. Eventually, he decided to give the ball to Marcus Stoins and KKR's Andre Russell had himself a grand feast. Ruthless. Relentless. Russel ðªð¥ The absolute hitting that led to this though ðð@KKRiders @Russell12A #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/4Ou1HzYS34 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 Now, let's talk about the match between CSK and KXIP. In the second last over of Chennai's bowling, Deepak Chahar bowls back to back beamers at Sarfaraz Khan, who manages to hit a four on the first but takes a single on the second to give the strike to David Miller. This is where MS Dhoni steps in to have a word with the youngblood. Visibly upset with the consecutive no-balls, Dhoni lets Chahar hear it. It felt more like a discussion between an angry school teacher and a student who keeps quiet with hands at the back the whole time. Moment of the day. #DeepakChahar was almost in tears after a terrible start to the over. Couldn't look into the eyes of #Dhoni. Would love to know what from Chahar himself on what was said. Because clearly after this, he seemed a different bowler altogether. #CSKvKXIP #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/iwq3yVXjtI — Abhishek Barthur (@imabhi27) April 6, 2019 Instantly, Chahar looked like a different player altogether. After two scary yorkers he ended the over by dismissing Miller. We could not have made this up. One day after another, the two leaders of the Indian cricket team were put in similar spot but while one chose to continue to abuse at his players from the boundary line, the other decided to find out what's wrong with his teammate, shared a few words of wisdom and encouraged him to be the best version of himself.
  6. Apple's AirPods are now an iconic piece of hardware that has now become more of a status symbol. Even though it was met with much criticism at launch, the cultural impact of these earbuds can't be ignored. We've already seen companies like Samsung trying to get a piece of the pie with Galaxy Buds and now it's Amazon's turn. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla According to a report from Bloomberg, Amazon is now looking to make their own version of AirPods that will also have support for Alexa. The true wireless earphones are expected to look exactly like the AirPods but will apparently have better sound. Apple already launched the new Powerbeats Pro to further their hold in the true wireless market with other companies trying to replicate Apple's success. The report said “the Seattle-based e-commerce giant is readying earbuds with built-in Alexa access for as early as the second half of this year, according to people with knowledge of the plans. The headphones will look and act similar to AirPods, but people working on the product inside Amazon are striving for better audio quality, the people said. Like the AirPods, the Amazon earbuds are designed to sit inside users' ears without clips around the ear.” © Apple Amazon's earbuds are expected to work just like Echo products where users will be able to fire up the digital assistant by saying “Alexa”. Users will need to be connected to the internet via an Android or iOS device in order to use the digital assistant. Just like the AirPods, Amazon's wireless earbuds will come with a charging case and will be available in two colours i.e. grey and black. Amazon's earbuds are expected to launch sometime in 2019 and we can expect it to be priced similar to the AirPods. Source: Bloomberg
  7. Earlier this week, the Powerbeats Pro were spotted in an iOS update and has now been made official by Apple. The company's Beats division is now making its mark in the true wireless earphones market and will be available to buy from this May. The Powerbeats Pro is going to be more expensive than the AirPods i.e. $250 (Rs 17,200 Approx) and reportedly offers better sound quality. The Powerbeats Pro is also expected to last longer than before and comes with Apple's new H1 chip that can also be found on the new AirPods. The H1 Chip enables the new AirPods to fire up Siri by simply saying the command “Hey Siri”. The wireless earbuds also offer a more secure and comfortable fit as compared to the AirPods. © Apple Beats This reduces sound leakage which has been the only known issue with AirPods. It works similar to the AirPods with the ability to control volume and tracks with any of the two earbuds. The earbuds also automatically play/pause when they are removed from your ear. © Apple The Powebeats Pro is expected to last for up to nine hours or up to 24 hours of playback time with the charging case. The charging case also has a fast-charging feature that can give the earbuds an additional 1.5 hours of usage after five minutes of charge. As of now, there is no word whether we will get to see the Powerbeats Pro launch in India.
  8. Even though Apple announced an updated version of the AirPods, the company accidentally revealed a brand new true wireless earphone that is expected to launch soon. According to a report by 9to5Mac, the company is expected to launch its second true wireless earphones. Apple mistakenly left animations and images inside the iOS 12.2. update which shows off the new Powerbeats wireless earphones. © 9to5Mac The new earphones will be called 'Powerbeats Pro' and will replace the Powerbeats 3 which has better sound quality than the AirPods. It will have a tight seal which is a major missing feature of the AirPods and also has swappable tips. These tips will add better water and sweat resistance for the earphones and keep them in place. The new AirPods come with Apple's H1 chip which could also be included in the Powerbeats Pro. The new chip enables the new AirPods to have an always-listening feature which simply allows users to activate Siri by saying “Hey Siri” © 9to5Mac The Powerbeats 3 offered 12 hours of battery and we could only guess what the Powerbeats Pro is expected to offer. The pricing of the unexpected wireless earphones is also unknown but could be a bit more expensive than the AirPods. The Powerbeats are also expected to launch in two colours i.e. white and black which should be a saving grace for many users. Black AirPods have been one of the most requested product by Apple Fans, and we may just see it on a different set of wireless earbuds for now. We can only be sure of the price and battery life once Apple announces the Powerbeats Pro officially. Source: 9to5Mac
  9. It seems like Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's Miami vacation is never-ending - just like their wedding - and people talking about it and it's just going on and on. But, why talk about a few seconds of 'Mera Wala Dance' at the end of their video, when you can just edit an entire Bollywood song? Sucker vibes in Miami. pic.twitter.com/uTTARhpudg — Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) March 25, 2019 There were so many videos that people decided to start making spoofs of it, and I have to admit, the entire Jonas clan dancing to 'Jeene Ke Hai Chaar Din' is so much better than them dancing to 'Sucker'.

  10. On Tuesday, around 11 AM, a time when most of us were either waking up or getting ready or stuck in traffic; PM Modi was busy writing a tweet that was about to shake the nation to its core, the moment he clicked the post button. He wrote this, "I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media." This tweet sent everyone into a frenzy and reminded them of the day when PM Modi suddenly announced Demonetisation. Panic amongst public rose to another level when PM Modi didn't turn up at 11:45 to make the announcement, and he was half an hour late. मà¥à¤°à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤°à¥ दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤, à¤à¤ सवà¥à¤°à¥ लà¤à¤­à¤ 11.45 - 12.00 बà¤à¥ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ महतà¥à¤µà¤ªà¥à¤°à¥à¤£ सà¤à¤¦à¥à¤¶ लà¥à¤à¤° à¤à¤ª à¤à¥ बà¥à¤ à¤à¤à¤à¤à¤¾à¥¤ I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 If you're wondering why we're talking about it now. Well, that's because we were standing in a queue outside the ATM near our office. Don't lie, you too checked your wallet and your bank balance,right? Jokes apart, the announcement had nothing to do with Demonetisation, so your money is safe. In the journey of every nation there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today. India has successfully tested the Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Missile. Congratulations to everyone on the success of #MissionShakti. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 PM Modi's special announcement was about 'Mission Shakti', an operation under which an Indian-made anti-satellite weapon called A-SAT shot down a live satellite on a low earth orbit. In fact, with this India has become the fourth country after Russia, the US and China to get this technology. An important message to the nation. Watch. https://t.co/0LEOATgOOQ — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 Well, this is indeed a remarkable achievement for the nation, but by this time, Twitter was not even bothered about it because they were busy ranting and cracking jokes on demonetisation and PM Modi. And in all honesty, these memes and jokes are so funny that they are actually better than PM Modi's speech.

  11. 1More has a stellar lineup of earphones that offer superb sound quality at an unbeatable price. The company's most popular products till date include the 1More Pistons, which Xiaomi licensed and sold at a ridiculously low price, and the 1More Triple Driver earphones, which we think is worth every penny. Now, it looks like 1More is on a quest to make a wireless variant of all its popular wired ones, so we decided to check out their Dual driver BT earphones. I am not a huge fan of neckband-style earphones as they don't fit into my lifestyle. I'd rather go fully wireless and use something like the Bose SoundSport Free or just use a wired pair of earphones and completely avoid the hassle of dealing with cords. But I've been using the 1More Stylish Dual Dynamic Driver BT for a week now, and I have to say that it's indeed a winner. To my surprise, I fell head over heels in love with this pair, and let me tell you why. Here's my review of the 1More Stylish Dual-Dynamic BT earphones: Design As I said, I am not a huge fan of neckband-style earphones in general, but I was ready to make an exception for this mainly because my first impressions were fairly positive. Unlike some pair of neckbands, this one has a soft silicone band that blends into the plastic sound chamber. The band itself is not that thick or heavy, so they felt comfortable for the most part. The left chamber houses the button layout which includes a power button and a volume rocker that also doubles up as the previous/next track function. The buttons are clicky and are very easy to get used to, so no complaints there. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla The wires, which connect to the earphone housings, are fairly thick. I always prefer thick cables like these as they tend to age well over the thin ones. The earphone housing themselves are bigger than average and they protrude out of your ears when you wear them. The protrusion, however, is given considering the fact that they include two drivers inside. Thankfully, 1More bundles a bunch of silicone ear-tips inside the box with which you can find a snug fit. Trust me, that's very important because it can make or break your experience of using this pair of earphones. The medium-sized ear-tips, with which the earphones ship with, weren't good enough for me. It wasn't a snug fit and I couldn't hear the base at all. But switching to the large tips did the trick for me, so it's really important that you find the right fit. I can't stress that enough. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla How Does It Sound? This particular earphone, just like many other 1More earphones, is tuned by Grammy award-winning sound engineer, Luca Bignardi. Not that it should influence your purchase decision, but it's definitely something to consider. If I have to put it in simple terms, then I must say that these earphones sound great. The passive noise isolation, to begin with, is pretty good. I used them primarily during my metro commute and I am happy to report that I couldn't hear all the annoying chatter and announcements around me. Honestly, it made all the difference to me as I could focus on my music at all times. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla The drivers are warmer sounding, thanks to the base bump. It's more pronounced in electronic, pop and rap music, and they're all very enjoyable to listen to. The mids are well-presented as well. However, I found them a bit muddy at times. The high, however, are well-detailed and the earphones have a great sound stage with which I was able to make out individual instruments. That's not really a surprise given 1More's reputation. Their products are known for quality among the audiophile community after all. If I have to compare this pair of earphones with the likes of, say, the OnePlus Bullets wireless or Skullcandy's Ink's Bluetooth wireless earphones, then I'd say I like the 1More's dual-driver BT earphones better. It offers great soundstage, thumping bass, good clarity and everything in between. It's not all roses when it comes to the sound quality though. The microphone definitely needs some work. The call quality is below average and I found myself switching to phone's earpiece almost every time since the other person couldn't hear me properly. Charging & Connectivity The 1More Stylish BT has decent battery life. The company claims that you can listen to music for about 6 hours on a single; however, I was only able to push it to maybe like 4 hours on a single charge. Yes, it's not that impressive, but I am willing to give it a pass mainly due to the fact that it supports fast-charging. Also, it uses a micro-USB cable for charging, which is not a deal-breaker, but definitely worth noting. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla You can fully charge the earphones in just about 50 mins. That, in my opinion, is pretty good. But even if you don't have about 50 minutes to spare, I'd suggest you charge it for like 10-15 minutes to get around 2-3 hours of music playback at, say, about 75 per cent volume. Again, that's not too bad given the fact that it packs two drivers to push. That being said, I highly suggest you keep an eye on the battery level of your phone since the voice prompter is very unreliable, and it alerts about the battery being low until it's about to die. Also, I had paired the 1More Stylish BT with an iPhone XR throughout my testing. These earphones run on Bluetooth v4.2, and I found the connection to be fairly reliable. You can literally leave your phone and move up to 30ft away and still be able to listen to your music. Not too bad, right? I didn't experience any latency issues either while listening to music or while watching videos, so that's great as well. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla Is It Worth It? The 1More Stylish BT is currently retailing for INR 5,499 (https://india.1more.com/collections/earphones-headphones/products/1more-dual-driver-stylish-wireless), which makes it slightly more expensive than the likes of OnePlus Bullets Wireless and the Skullcandy Ink wireless, which I talked about previously. But is it worth the extra money? Well, I'd say yes, especially if you're looking for a pair of bass-heavy neckband-style earphones. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla For me personally, these earphones check all the right boxes in the checklist of what makes a pair of wireless earphones good. Yes, it may sound like an expensive proposition, but it's got great audio quality (better than others in this price range), it's nice and comfortable to wear, and it keeps your music isolated from the din of the outside world.
  12. No one tasted success in the year 2018 like Ayushmann Khurrana did, perhaps except Vicky Kaushal. Whatever he touched turned to gold, and he clearly has decided to keep the momentum going in 2019 as well (he already has started shooting for 'Article 15'). One thing that Ayushmann is as consistent at, just like his acting chops, is his fashion and grooming game. He never stops experimenting, and everything seems to work for him. The latest example? His pornstar moustache. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Ayushmann just won an award for the most popular performer, and along with an amazing tailcoat, he showed off his brand new pornstache - something he's a natural at pulling off. © Instagram/Ishabhansali Don't you love this sharp new look? © Viral Bhayani When it comes to his style game, as usual, stylist Isha Bhansali went the extra mile and made Ayushmann look like a sophisticated Duke from the Victorian era. As if the ladies already weren't weak-kneed! © Instagram/Ishabhansali We're loving the interplay of grey, white, and black in his ensemble. The white bowtie is an unusual quirk that's adding the distinctive vintage look. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is, full marks on the moustache, as well as the outfit, Ayushmann. Now, we can't wait to see the magic you're about to bring to the big screen.
  13. There's been a lot of banter about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's camera prowess. My colleague reviewed the phone earlier this week and found it to be really good, but I wanted to test it out myself before passing my judgement, if any. So I decided to borrow our review unit and took it out for a spin. And boy, was I in for a surprise! I use an iPhone XR as my daily driver and I really like that phone, its cameras included. In fact, it has been one of my favorite phones to shoot pictures with lately. Given how much I like the iPhone XR's cameras, I wasn't expecting the Note 7 Pro to take me by surprise. But trust me, I was wrong. At first, I started capturing random pictures with the Redmi Note 7 Pro to get the hang of the camera and Xiaomi's camera app. Even when I wasn't really putting much effort, this phone managed to produce shots like this: © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Yes, it was at this point that I decided to pull out my iPhone XR out of curiosity to see how they compared. It was somewhat a gloomy day here in New Delhi, which I thought was just perfect to push these cameras to their limits. So, I did. Just take a look: Note: All photos captured from the Redmi Note 7 Pro have a watermark. The images used for comparison were shot on an iPhone XR. Also, none of these images have been edited in any way whatsoever. The images, which you see below, were shot from a metro station. Both phones did a really good job here, but I personally like the Redmi Note 7 Pro's photo mainly because of the colors. They're natural, and the overall image look a lot presentable with lots of detail. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Next up, I decided to go with a shot which, honestly, even a lot of flagship smartphones struggle with. As we all know, it's pretty hard to expose the subject when there's a strong source of light right behind or around the subject. But both the phones did great in this case. The fact that Redmi Note 7 Pro managed to make it just as good as the iPhone XR did, is truly impressive. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another one. The Redmi Note 7 Pro's image is the clear winner for me here. The focus on the subject is on point, and there's a ton of detail. Not that the iPhone's image is bad, but it's not something I would post on social media without doing a bit of tinkering unlike the Note 7 Pro's image. It's truly a stunning shot, is it? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Even as I was losing the light and things started getting more gloomy, the Redmi Note 7 Pro didn't fail to impress me. This is one of those images, which truly made me question the point of buying an expensive phone to get good cameras. Great dynamic range and really good exposure. Just take a look - © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another shot taken in low light/ artificial lighting. This restaurant is better known for its food than lighting, but the pictures aren't too shabby, are they? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer I can keep throwing in more images here from my gallery, but I think we've established a point here. No, I am not trying to pick a winner and justify my opinion. However, I must say that Xiaomi has done a phenomenal job with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. I mean, just Rs 13,990 for a smartphone that's capable of competing with big dogs like Apple's iPhone? Sign me up. Of course, I am not ready to ditch my iPhone, at least not yet, but the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a star. If you like taking pictures on your phone among other things and you don't want to burn a huge whole in your pocket, then the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a no-brainer. It's truly the budget king that everyone needs to beat. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla Well, that wraps up just about everything. Again, most of this is subjective since not all people tend to prefer the same kind of images. But as someone who loves taking pictures for Instagram and craves a bit of a self-validation, I really enjoyed my time shooting with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. If you're looking to check out more camera samples or want to learn more about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's overall performance, then be sure to check out our review of the phone.
  14. Marvel vs DC is an argument that will never end, even when Jason Momoa has said “screw it”, and supported all the other superheroes from other universes as well. © Instagram But, fans always love a heated debate on crucial matters like which cinematic universe is better, which superhero is better than the other, and now, even which villain is better. A new form of Marvel Vs DC argument began yesterday, with people trying to figure out who's a better villain - Thanos or Bane. Thanos or Bane? Let's argue. — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 5, 2019 Both of them have proved how powerful and well, villainous, they are in their own right. I mean, Thanos basically defeated the Avengers the last time we saw him, and 'dusted' half the life in the entire universe and Bane is, well, the bane of Batman's existence. And thus, a discussion began. Compelling argument. Bane lost to Batman, Thanos destroyed the Avengers. — David Weissman (@davidmweissman) March 5, 2019 Well. Bane lost to the dude that took down the Justice League, depending on how you slice things — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 5, 2019 There's a lot of love for Thanos. Thanos no question. U caping for DC Comics I see lol — Damien Woody (@damienwoody) March 5, 2019 A very, very important addition. pic.twitter.com/UzpQ2Cor1G — Edgar Fernandez (@Edgar_usmc) March 5, 2019 More love for Thanos. Okay. Thanos defeated the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Bane was essentially Talia's henchman who got taken out by Catwoman pressing the wrong button on the Batpod. — Sean Campbell (@Melanism) March 5, 2019 Good point. Thanos hung his own jersey from the rafters... #NoBrainer pic.twitter.com/GQldt3TcwS — Chuck Whitlock II (@2Kalculated_) March 5, 2019 Thanos, all the way. If it's Bane from Dark Knight Rises, Thanos wins in a landslide. If this is juiced up, big hulking Arkham Asylum/comics Bane.......Thanos wins in a landslide https://t.co/zCyVpk9oET — Vox da ghost (@Goldyvox) March 5, 2019 Oh, wait. “Thanos or Bane? Let's-“ *snaps* https://t.co/Nv6frGjJV7 — lauren warrenðSXSW (@iamlaurenp) March 5, 2019 A nicely put argument. If you're asking who would win in a fight, Thanos would beat Bane without breaking a sweat, infinity stones or not. He's a titan. If it's whose performance was better, Tom Hardy is 3 car lengths ahead of Josh Brolin. — Rusty Westerholm (@RustyWesterholm) March 5, 2019 Thanos wouldn't dare. Bane even died in a cartoonish way. Got hit by Catwoman crashing in on a moped. Thanos would never. — ðððATLANTA IS A SOCCER TOWN! ððð(@Lex_Naija) March 5, 2019 No one can compete with Thanos' powers. Hmmmm………. Tough question. I'll say it depends on what we are comparing here. Physical powers? Ideology? Their respective personal stories? Bane's story and personality are far more interesting but Thanos's powers are not up for discussion. https://t.co/zkgvptb63H — Puff Mammy. (@PaolaAudrey) March 5, 2019 Some love for Bane. This isn't even a contest. Bane broke Batman without a bunch of all powerful infiniti stones. His motive is he just wants to burn everything down because society is too corrupt. That's more interesting than some arbitrary bullshit about getting rid of half of everyone. https://t.co/8sbwKkh72e — Chett Manley (@ChettManley) March 5, 2019 Finally.

  15. Anil Kapoor must be doing something weird - something no one knows about, something that's keeping him young, in fact, perhaps even turning the clock in reverse for him. We are not saying it, it's just the general sentiment among people, who constantly wonder how on earth this man seems to be getting younger by the day. Now, we have made peace with just believing that he's another case like Benjamin Button, but what baffles us is that his fashion sense is also getting edgier by the day! He just clicked a picture with a bunch of youngsters (compared to him, of course) like Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kunal Khemu, and stole their collective thunder by wearing a pair of funky AF pink shoes. Take a look. © Instagram/Anillskapoor © Instagram/Anilskapoor Isn't Mr Kapoor standing apart by a mile, thanks to his footwear game? He's wearing the OFF-WHITE x Nike Zoom Fly in Tulip Pink - a pair of sneakers that are extremely conspicuous, while being comfortable at the same time. © Kicksonfore © Kicksonfore The signature Off-White typography along with the multiple shades of pink make this a pair that's a definite collectable, and every sneakerhead will agree. Right, Anand Ahuja? © Kicksonfore © Kicksonfore We're in love with the ergonomic design, as well as the signature laces. All we can say is, Mr Kapoor, take a bow because you're doing it just right.
  16. In 1999, Sooraj Barjatya came up with 'Hum Saath Saath Hain', a movie that gave us the iconic song 'ABCDEFGHI...I LOVE YOU' (is it just me or you too sang this while reading it), and gave Salman Khan a bag full of controversies. Now, after a decade, people are going crazy over 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' once again for the most hilariously relatable reason. After a hiatus of 5 years, the Jonas Brothers are back in business and have released their latest song 'Sucker', which also features their respective partners Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas. While 'Sucker' is a huge hit globally and has already garnered over 33 million views in 48 hours, in India, the song ended up making 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' trend, as people couldn't help but draw funny comparisons between the two. Jonas Brothers While most of us were busy laughing on the joke, someone actually went ahead and created a parody video that will leave you in splits.

  17. Actress Shraddha Kapoor turned 32 today and the makers of her upcoming film 'Saaho' have the most kickass birthday gift for her - 'Shades Of Saaho Chapter 2'. This one-minute teaser gives a sneak-peek into the making of the high-octane action scenes and her character. UV Creations For someone who spends 70 crores just to blow up cars, bikes and trucks in Abu Dhabi, you can't expect anything but the best and this behind-the-scenes video is proof of the same. Call it a tradition or an epic promotion strategy, the makers of 'Saaho' sure know how to get people's attention. Last year, they released the first BTS teaser of Chapter 1 on Prabhas' birthday and this year, they picked Shraddha's birthday to release the second teaser and introduce her character too. UV Creations While Shraddha plays a cop in the movie, everyone's beloved Baahubali will have to face enemies more fierce than Bhallaldeva, Kalakeyas and Katappa. By the looks of the teasers and trailers, Prabhas is all set to burn the screen with his high-octane stunts and performance. In fact, people can't get over how amazing the two, especially Prabhas looks. His dialogue, or just one word (to be precise), "Boom!" has already stirred a storm on the internet. To be honest, this one-minute teaser is better than half the Bollywood movies out there. Gunshot visuals and #SAAHO team is surely going great guns for delivering a slick 'n' stylish Hollywood level action feast! ð Rebelstar #PRABHAS...mass mentalllssss anthe! ð In @sujeethsign we believe!#ShadesOfSaaho2 #ShadesOfSaahoChapter2 pic.twitter.com/IMMNvmPzA2 — M S Krishna Prateek (@mskp_29) March 3, 2019 Just One Dialogue BOOM ð¥ð¥â#Prabhas #Saaho Full Video Linkðhttps://t.co/nNoDgYjQ8n #ShadesOfSaaho2 #ShadesOfSaahoChapter2 #ShraddhaKapoor #HBDSaahoQueenShraddha @ShraddhaKapoor #HBDshraddhaFromPrabhasFans #HappyBirthdayShraddhaKapoor #BOOM pic.twitter.com/GBb1SKSSA7 — Prabhas Raju⤠(@sandy_prabhas) March 3, 2019 Review in one Word : Fucking Awesome. #ShadesOfSaaho2 — Indian Military (@INDIAN_FORCEE) March 3, 2019 We getting Gouseboms for only making video wt abt movie ð±ð±ð±OMG...! #ShadesOfSaaho2 #Prabhas @ShraddhaKapoor@sujeethsign@SKNonline pic.twitter.com/VTokpNjNnb — Gopi kommera (@KommeraGopi) March 3, 2019 Directed by Sujeeth, 'Saaho' is expected to release in 2019 on Independence Day.

  18. On days when the genius minds on Twitter are not busy laughing at memes, they are busy making one. This particular crossover between Donald Trump and Ranveer Singh, which we never knew we needed, is one such meme that we just can't stop laughing at. Eros International No, Donald Trump didn't follow Ranveer's millions of fans to rap to 'Apna Time Aayega' from 'Gully Boy', but he did show off his kickass dance moves by grooving to one of his popular songs. I am sure no one, even in their wildest dreams, imagined the US President to dance to a Bollywood number, but thanks to a genius, we just got a glimpse of how epic it will be if he ever did that. Eros International In case you missed it, there's a video going viral on social media where Trump is dancing to 'Malhari' from 'Bajirao Mastani'. Of course, the video is fake and photoshopped, but it's too damn funny and definitely something you can't unsee.

On the work front, Ranveer is currently basking in the success of 'Simmba' and 'Gully Boy' and working on his upcoming movie '83, where he will play the role of legendary Indian skipper Kapil Dev and recreate India's historic win at the 1983 Cricket World Cup.
  19. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League is almost here and Twitter is already ablaze, with fans representing all of the eight teams coming up with funnier, more creative ways of roasting their rivals. With the announcement of the IPL 2019 schedule for the first two weeks of the tournament making headlines yesterday, we learnt that the opening game would be between Royal Challengers Bangalore and the reigning champion Chennai Super Kings. ð¨ Announcement ð¨: The #VIVOIPL schedule for the first two weeks is out. The first match of the 2019 season will be played between @ChennaiIPL and @RCBTweets Details - https://t.co/wCi6dYHlXL pic.twitter.com/TaYdXNKVSx — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) February 19, 2019 It will be a contest of aggression versus experience as Indian cricket team's current captain Virat Kohli and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will square up against each other. Although there's still more than a month to go for the first IPL match to take place in previous champion's home ground in Chennai, the two franchises decided to get on with social media savagery already. As soon as the schedule came out, Royal Challengers Bangalore came up with this tweet: A spicy south Indian Derby for starters - but we prefer the sweet sambar... Our VIVO IPL 2019 begins away from Bengaluru on Day 1 ⤠#PlayBold — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) February 19, 2019 Quick on the response, the official Twitter account of the Chennai Super Kings tweeted: But sambar is always #Yellove in colour no? ð¤ðð¦ https://t.co/f5Rw9ZtpH6 — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) February 19, 2019 The Whistle Podu gang's hilarious response led to the troll-hungry fans to get in on the fun: Before i die...

What makes the victory even sweeter is the fact that the franchise was banned from the league due to match-fixing allegations and this was their year of redemption. Not so exciting for Bengaluru though as Kohli and gang were amongst the lowest ranked teams (6th in 8 teams) and did not even qualify for the playoffs.
  20. Try tossing any idea or concept towards Amul and you can trust them to blow your minds away with their creativity. Time and again they have proved why people love their creative side more than their butter. Recently, they won or should we say cried together with millions of hearts, by paying homage to the CRPF jawans martyred in the deadly Pulwama terror attack. Earlier, they paid tribute to Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri' by showing everyone the 'Makhan Ka Josh'. #Amul Topical: Homage to our CRPF martyrs... pic.twitter.com/Q6mEl3eV7I — Amul.coop (@Amul_Coop) February 15, 2019 Now, Amul has won praises from people for their take on Ranveer Singh's blockbuster movie 'Gully Boy'.

Even before its release, 'Gully Boy' had blockbuster written all over it and now that it has hit the theatres, the movie has lived up to the expectations quite well. Apart from Ranveer Singh, people are also loving the performances of Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz and Vijay Varma in this movie directed by Zoya Akhtar.
  21. While modern day romance fails in extremity today, we still cling on to that hope of making everything porous and walk through the nuances of an equation, without giving it much purpose. After the advent of dating apps, the romantic behaviour between two people changed with time and there was definitely a slight curve in how relationships or any sort of romantic dynamic works today. © Instagram The generation that grew up post the 90s has trouble dealing with the likes of patience. Not because they're not inherently patient people, but because patience is no longer a prerequisite that's required to see the eventuality of a fruitful relationship. The 90s was an era without mobile phones, constant meet ups or even chatting. There were no DMs, no texts, but there were humble beginnings, and sleeping and waking up with a solid thought always on one's mind, without knowing what's going on in the other person's mind. Not because you didn't want to know, but because there was no way to find out unless you spoke to them over a wired phone, aka a landline. Obviously we're not in the 90s anymore and couples who're thorough with the philosophies of this generation know just how easy it is to communicate anything at anytime. So, then why aren't relationships malleable and long lasting anymore? Why does no one make much of an effort? Why is it so simple to let go, making boredom and not wanting to work hard a default flag bearer for crumbling relationships? Something to think about, isn't it? © Instagram Well, in a literal needle in the haystack situation, I came across a couple, who'd been acting like they're from the 90s, wherein they were absolutely brand new! They certainly proved me wrong and made me believe that old-school love and lasting relationships aren't always a myth and they dwell in the realms of genuine hardships too, if you try hard enough. Meet Siddhant and Naina. Two people who're individually so comfortable in their skin, they had no qualms about coming together and making their dynamic as stable as breathing. The two are young and in love and have been together for 5 years now, which means they started their journey when they were just 21! Siddhant and Naina set a benchmark for all couples old and new to take relationships a little more seriously, by being grounded and true to their roots and by displaying ample patience and understanding of what it really takes to make a relationship as solid as possible. © Instagram We became "phone friends" in high school but never actually met each other till much later. She was still hung up on her ex and I was in love with someone else and I guess we just found some solace in each other. Not in a romantic way but just in a 'here is this disembodied voice on the other end of the phone and this person is kinda fun to talk to.' Anyway, we lost touch soon after until we finally met again when were both older and the attraction was immediate - Siddhant That's how equations begin most times. You meet someone, you like their energy, you go ahead and speak to them and if your thoughts and ideas form similar semblances, you connect and continue that dynamic further. Both Siddhant and Naina were young and absolute novice to a 'romantic' space and they built it from the scratch to hold on to something at a time where holding on is just passé. They've endured most hardships relationships throw your way, including blood boiling fights, long-distance and understanding how friendship works side-by-side in a dynamic that's becoming stronger each day. © Instagram We are best friends and we connect on every level. And added to that he is the best human being I know. So I think I'd pick our first fight as a memory I can never forget, which was over something ridiculous on our way to watch Inception. We went through the silent treatment and the anger bubbling. That was the moment I realised this human being can also REALLY get on my nerves. - Naina Their First Date Ever They didn't choose a bar or a club or have rendezvous with drinks. I mean, it's believed they would because they belong to the generation where people seek thrill and adventure to get to know a stranger. You know, the inconsequentials of city life. But they didn't want a sense of instant gratification. They did the old school coffee date to get to know each other better and maybe see where their equation went after. We met at a cafe on a roof in Hauz Khas village, had a few beers and ate pizza. We were in this weird place where we were almost too friendly. Nobody was making flirty advances or anything, we were just chatting like old buds. I remember thinking that the cafe was totally empty, why wouldn't he just kiss me and I think when it finally occurred to him it was too late. - Naina © Instagram The imposition of making the overture of any relationship a social extravaganza to fulfil our societal needs and wants in today's day and age rules rather high. No one takes the time out to find out more than they should from the other person. Either it's having a drink or two at the local watering hole, where you and your SO surrounded by friend and acquaintances, or it's meeting each other over a lot of drinks to lower inhibitions. But here we have young guns, who'd established a long lasting equation, with silent promises to make it work as and when, over a cup of coffee! The Best Learnings From A Long-Term Relationship The thing about long term relationships if you start really young and make it till the end is you learn a lot. From yourself as a person and of course from the other person too. You learn early on how to give, how to commit to a moment, how to become absolutely selfless and flawless while dealing with certain obstacles in life. You treasure things that are imperative and you stop mocking patience as an obscure tool. You feel complete. Couples today, who're superfluous with their feelings, or callous with their associations, seldom get a chance to learn the significance of empathy and attachment, while also realising the importance of being an individual. In my relationship with Naina, I've learnt how to be confident, believe in myself, speak my mind, take no shit, be honest, be loyal and learn to accept people and understand where they're coming from. - Siddhant © Instagram We thrive in a hook-up-break-up generation, where *** is not a limited want anymore. Callous flings happen all the time, every time and the word commitment is losing its supposed meaning. While millennials love to experiment in open relationships, polyamory, extra-marital triumphs, flings, casual ***, bisexual curiosity, the entire thread of making a commitment more transparent is wavering off from people's minds. But then we have some couples like Naina and Siddhant who're holding on the very existence of 'love and friendship' and shaping it as a long-term commitment goal, even at 26. This is what we want to retain, in a space where everything is so fragile and intangible, and we really hope more couples aspire to be like them and their easy going, beautiful philosophy of a long-term relationship. © Instagram We completed 5 years together in October last year. Now I'm looking forward to a milestone and he rolls his eyes at me every time I hint at it. We've grown together over and over. He really is my best friend and we have that ability to look at each other as girlfriend and boyfriend but also as human beings/friends. We look out for each other like that. I think how Sid's grown is that he's become more vocal and confident about what he wants, what he loves, what he doesn't love and I think I've become calmer and more level headed because of him. - Naina
  22. Last year, PM Narendra Modi was announced as the world's most followed leader across all social media platforms. In fact, his social media presence and active response to his followers' tweets and posts speaks volumes about why so many people follow him. Even today, no other leader (not even Donald Trump) gets to enjoy such fame and popularity on social media, or so we thought. © Wikimedia Sorry to break this news to you PM Modi, but, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has successfully managed to dethrone you and has now become the biggest rage on social media. From being a favourite fodder for memes to getting weird hashtags to trend, Mamata Didi (as people lovingly call her) is breaking the internet like a boss. © Twitter While she is currently busy protesting against the Central government and PM Modi is meeting people from the Bollywood fraternity; people on social media are busy making hilarious memes and parody videos on these two. One such video is this what I like to call 'Didi Ka Gussa', which has started doing the rounds on the internet once again, thanks to an FB page called 'Unofficial PMO India'. This video is pure gold and PM Modi's rap is even better. Can we say, PM Modi is a better rapper than 'Gully Boy' Ranveer Singh? After watching this video I am sure you will agree with me. The video also has a cameo of Rahul Gandhi and Lalu Prasad Yadav.

  24. POCO F1 was launched last year and has been in the news quite a lot, thanks to its pricing and offered features. It is still the cheapest phone to house a Snapdragon 845 processor, along with minor additions like liquid cooling. Xiaomi's POCO initially pushed the F1 as a performance phone, built for those who want speed. Slowly, the brand improved the camera output via multiple software updates and even gave out many new features in the POCO launcher. This made the phone have a good balance of features over time. © YouTube DxOMark is regarded as a formidable benchmark to test camera performance. They tested the POCO F1's rear cameras in terms of quality, and the device performed at the same outstanding level as the iPhone 8. The POCO F1 got a score of 91, at par with the iPhone 8 and very close to the Note 8. Taking a look at the results of the tests, DxOMark praised the device for fast and accurate autofocus while shooting both photos and videos. The camera also recorded “pleasant” and “vivid” colours in photos and videos “in all lighting conditions”. The POCO F1 shines in capturing stills with its fast autofocus, eye-pleasing colours and accurate white balance. © DxOMark The phone scores 90 points in the video department which is the same score that's awarded to the iPhone 8. Thanks to Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), the POCO F1 is able to reduce focus time significantly. We must keep in mind that the iPhone 8 costs two times more than the POCO F1. The POCO F1 sports a dual rear camera setup that includes a 12-megapixel primary sensor along with a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth sensing. The iPhone 8 has a single 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization. © Reuters This isn't the first time POCO's camera has been appreciated. In a blind camera test last year, it scored the second position, beating even the likes of iPhone XS and Google Pixel 3. Considering the price, the POCO F1 is turning out to be a no-nonsense package that can deliver on performance, as well as above average camera. We're already hearing rumours about the POCO F2, and hope it'll continue forward the same legacy. Source: DxOMark
  25. Whatever style gaffes Suniel Shetty might be a victim of during the '90s, he has more than made up for all of that now. He probably is the fittest dad in Bollywood right now with grown up kids, and his fashion game is so on point that the only proper analogy would be that of aging wine. From giving 25-year-olds a run for their money to giving SRK style complex, this man is a force to reckon with. He just proved it once again by attending Amit Thackeray's wedding reception wearing a plain white dhoti and making it look runway-ready. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The white cotton dhoti is perhaps the most 'Indian' outfit of all times, when it comes to menswear, but it is terribly underrated. Be it the comfort, the grace, or the raw, natural, masculine appeal it exudes - there is no other outfit that can score better. Suniel Shetty clearly understands it, as he stood tall, wearing a simple dhoti amongst the glam and glitz around, and stealing everyone's thunder nonetheless. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani A white kurta and a cotton dhoti not only makes for the most comfortable outfit ever, it is also the most regal one - in a sophisticated, subtle manner. The fact that he chose to wear a pair of brown Kolhapuris with it, and kept it comfy yet classy, shows that his style game is as effortlessly functional as it is smart. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani All we can say is the new crop of Bollywood youngsters need a style lesson from him about how to keep it simple yet stunning, urgently. Kudos!
