  1. On his 47th birthday, Hrithik Roshan gave a treat to his fans by announcing his new venture, Fighter. He has collaborated with Deepika Padukone and people can't wait to watch them on the screens together in an action entertainer directed by Siddharth Anand. According to the report in Pinkvilla, the movie will be made on an insane budget of Rs 250 crore thus making it one of the costliest films ever. As per the PinkVilla report, a source close to the development said, "Siddharth and Hrithik have been planning to make Fighter for a while now, in fact, it’s a subject they were supposed to collaborate on before War. It’s a big scale areal action thriller, with Hrithik playing the character of an air force pilot for the first time in his career. Sid has envisioned the story on a massive scale, with areal fight scenes, chases, and a lot more, backed with a storyline with an undercurrent of nationalism, romance, and emotions." Presenting a glimpse of the MARFLIX vision as #Fighter! Looking forward to my first flight alongside the exceptional @deepikapadukone. All buckled up for this #SiddharthAnand joyride. pic.twitter.com/gaqv53xbO9 — Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) January 10, 2021 The source added, "Sid is planning to make it on a budget of Rs 250 crore, thereby making it one of the costliest and biggest action films to have come out of Bollywood. The Hindi film industry has not seen big scale action thriller against the backdrop of Indian Air Force for a while now, and that’s exactly the space that Hrithik and Sid are trying to explore." View this post on Instagram The teaser hints the film will be an action film high on patriotism. It is scheduled to hit theatres on September 30, 2022. Talking about the film, Siddharth Anand said, "This is definitely one of the most exciting moments of my life to bring together two of my favourite stars, Hrithik and Deepika, for the first time to the Indian and global audience. I am thrilled to begin the journey of MARFLIX, a production house dedicated to action film making in India. I started this journey of Marflix along with my life partner Mamta Anand. Starting MARFLIX with Hrithik is special as he is someone who has seen me even working as an AD, then as a director on two films and now I am not just his director but I’m also starting my production house with him."

  2. A couple of weeks ago, ahead of the Sydney Test Australian Pacer Mitchell Starc and wicket-keeper batswoman Alyssa Healy talked about an incredible encounter with Virat Kohli over a decade ago, in a YouTube video. “Ellyse Perry and I were sitting there and this guy wandered over to us, this young Indian guy. He didn’t introduce himself. He said ‘hello, how are you?’ and then he said ‘I am the next big thing in Indian cricket’,” said Healy in the video. At the time, the two Australian cricketers had taken that Indian cricketer’s words jokingly and simply laughed it off but clearly he meant every bit of it. “It was Virat Kohli,” Healy added. “I have never been able to confirm that story but I swear to god that that was Virat.” And even though the Australian cricketer left us with an unconfirmed story in that video, asking Kohli to reaffirm her memory, yet another source, closer to home also told the same story to his followers. In yet another YouTube video, Ravichandran Ashwin told the exact same story to his subscribers. “That tournament was a quadrangular series… The who’s who, the later superstars of world cricket played in that competition. Right after the series was over, there was a dinner and get-together,” Ashwin said. “At that time, Virat went and introduced himself to Alyssa Healy. He said ‘Hi, this is Virat Kohli. The next big thing in Indian cricket’,” added the Indian allrounder while talking about the memory he has from that tour. View the full article

  6. Amitabh Bachchan is extremely active on Twitter and was more so in 2020. Big B is the second most-followed person on Twitter, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He keeps sharing anecdotes from his past and also shares motivational poems but this time, he goofed up. T 3761 - थोड़ा पानी रंज का उबालिये खूब सारा दूध ख़ुशियों का *थोड़ी पत्तियां ख़यालों की..* थोड़े गम को कूटकर बारीक, हँसी की चीनी मिला दीजिये.. *उबलने दीजिये ख़्वाबों को* *कुछ देर तक..!* यह ज़िंदगी की चाय है जनाब.. इसे तसल्ली के कप में छानकर *घूंट घूंट कर मज़ा लीजिये...!!* pic.twitter.com/qwGbczzcLp — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) December 23, 2020 A fan pointed out that the lines belonged to her and was not credited for the same. “Sir, I am fortunate to have my lines on your wall.

However, he was quick to apologize publicly on his Twitter account. He wrote, “T 3765 - @TishaAgarwal14 ..

  9. This year we saw many web-series releasing on OTT but Scam 1992 received a lot of unexpected appreciation from the audience. It got a lot of rave reviews from the audience on the internet. The story of the series revolves around Harshad Mehta who single-handedly took the stock market to dizzying heights. The series follows his meteoric rise and his bad downfall. The businessman and stockbroker were accused of many scams and he ultimately died in prison. © sony Liv Pratik Gandhi played the role of Harshad Mehta in the series and the actor is getting lauded for his acting and most of all the way he delivers his speeches. The series made him an overnight star and now the success of Hansal Mehta directed how has reported given sleepless nights to the makers of The Big Bull. According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, just like Scam 1992, The Big Bull is also made on the life of Harshad Mehta. They knew that the series was based on the same man but they never thought that the series will be such a big success and will be largely accepted by the audience. View this post on Instagram A source said, “They are confident about their film but fear that it’ll be massively trolled by the lovers of the web show. There’ll be comparisons of Abhishek Bachchan’s performance and look with that of Pratik Gandhi. Even the other actors as well as the dialogues and music will face the wrath.” The makers had initially planned to release it on Disney+ Hotstar on December 18. But obviously, that won’t happen now. Producer Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, and co-actors Sohum Shah and Nikita Dutta have, in fact, even shot for an episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ way back on November 4. They were hoping that the hype around Scam 1992 would die down soon. However, it hasn’t happened yet. View this post on Instagram "The producers are aware that they can’t keep pushing the film indefinitely. It’s now expected to release in early 2021,” the source added. However, it is also said that the film was pushed to release in 2021 after Abhishek Bachchan contracted Coronavirus and some parts of the film were yet to be shot. What do you think?

  11. We’re pretty sure that everyone in Bollywood loves to wear cargo pants, given just how comfortable and practical they tend to be. It seems though, there are a few people who just can’t seem to be getting enough of it. We’re of course speaking of Asim Riaz. © Viral Bhayani Asim seems to be fascinated with militaristic, combat-styled cargo pants. Then, there was also this instance, when he went full military base-camp, with his outfit. © Viral Bhayani Well, just recently, he was spotted in a similar, military-meets-street aesthetic, which he seems to be acing, quite naturally. © Viral Bhayani Asim was seen wearing a rather dope, black coloured sweatshirt, patent leather boots, and cargo pants. Now, although the entire outfit is a classic example of athleisure and normcore, his pants do stand out on their own. © Viral Bhayani Asim’s cargo pants are stylised like combat trousers and have some ridiculously big pockets. So big in fact, that they can easily carry an 11-inch laptop in them. At the very least, they can carry an iPad-Pro. Guess that’s a nice way to ditch a cumbersome laptop bag. © Viral Bhayani The cargo pants that Asim is wearing are the DNWR Technical Cargo Pants from Zara. For the uninitiated, DNWR is the streetwear/activewear branch of Zara. One might assume that because they come from a specialised division within Zara, the pants would be expensive. They actually retail for about Rs 5,500. © Zara Now, this may not cheap, but consider how certain activewear makers charge astronomically for their products, this is not tear-inducing expensive either. © Viral Bhayani Coming back to the rest of his outfit, we really like his choice of boots. The patent leather actually sets up a nice contrast to the rest of his outfit and gives it a very urban appeal. © Viral Bhayani All in all, that’s a dope outfit. We’re really liking this technical, militaristic aesthetic that Asim seems to have cracked. Well done, man, seriously, hats off. View the full article
  12. Hrithik Roshan is known as the Greek God of the industry and also a heartthrob of Bollywood. He has given us some amazing films like Super 30 & War recently. But, he has always carved his way around controversy and has often fallen into trouble. From legal troubles to link-up issues, he has been through all. So, here are some controversies that stirred up in Hrithik’s life. View this post on Instagram Hrithik-Kangana Controversy This controversy turned into a legal case and it started when Kangana alleged that Hrithik proposed to her for getting in a relationship. She claimed that all this happened in Paris and later Hrithik’s passport cleared that he was in Mumbai. View this post on Instagram Alleged Link-Up With BarbaraAnother interesting controversy was Hrithik’s alleged link-up with Barbara Mori. Kite might have disappointed the audience and flopped big time at the box-office but their link-up rumor was widespread. Hrithik’s ex-wife Sussane was also not okay with the kind of chemistry they shared and it's also one of the reasons behind their divorce. View this post on Instagram The DivorceThe couple was together for 14 long years and then decided to part ways after the rumors of Barbara Mori and Hrithik Roshan’s link-ups. It was also said that Sussane left home several times amidst these rumors and it eventually led to a divorce. Another Alleged Link-Up Hrithik was also linked to Kareena Kapoor. She was supposed to be the lead in Hrithik’s debut film but Amisha Patel ended up getting the role. Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan worked in many films together and rumors kept coming up. However, Susanne cleared the air stating the rumors are false. View this post on Instagram Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan Controversy Salman said after the release of Hrithik and Aishwarya film Guzaarish that not even a single dog went to watch the film. This comment infuriated Hrithik and he expressed how it isn’t right to judge a movie’s success by its box office collection. View the full article

  15. The Indian cricket team might have initially struggled to get going Down Under, but they did fairly well to stage a brilliant comeback. Losing two successive games in the ODIs, Team India bounced back with a consolation win in the third match before bagging two consecutive wins to seal a 2-0 win in the T20I series. They did fail to pull off the clean-sweep in the shortest format, losing the 3rd T20I by 12 runs, but the 'Men in Blue' did look impressive despite the noticeable absences of key players. With the spoils of the tour evenly shared so far, Indian cricketers KL Rahul and Virat Kohli gained key points to rise in the ICC Player's rankings. © Twitter/@imVkohli The Indian captain looked in ominous form in the recently-concluded T20I series. After an early dismissal in the first match, Kohli returned stronger with a 24-ball 40 to contribute in India's 11-run win at Canberra. He followed it up with a sensational 85-run innings which almost won the 3rd T20I for the tourists. Scoring 134 runs at an average of over 44, Kohli ascended to the eighth spot in the T20I rankings for players. © Twitter/@klrahul11 On the other hand, Rahul began the T20I series with a bang, scoring an impressive fifty at the top of the order in the first match. The second match saw him scoring 22-ball 30 before getting dismissed for a golden duck in the final T20I of the series. With 81 runs in three matches, Rahul also jumped a place and reached the third spot with 816 points to his name in T20I rankings. © Twitter/@Sundarwashi5 In the bowling department, Washington Sundar remains the highest-ranked Indian bowler in T20Is. The 21-year-old is currently placed at the 11th spot in the coveted list that is led by Afghanistan's Rashid Khan. The Indian off-spinner could only manage to take two wickets in the recently-concluded T20I series against Australia, but it was his economy of 7.08, despite bowling in Powerplay overs, that impressed everyone. With Australia winning the ODIs 2-1 and India pegging the hosts back with a 2-1 win in T20Is, the action now moves to the longest format where Kohli & Co face the biggest test of their tour. Both the teams will be eager to finish the ongoing tour on a winning note as they get ready for the four-match Test series, slated to begin from 17th December in Adelaide. View the full article

  18. There’s finally some respite for people across the world, as it looks like we finally have the first COVID-19 vaccine set for public use. © AFP The United Kingdom has become the first western country to license a vaccine against Coronavirus, paving the way for mass immunisation with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for those most at risk. UK authorises Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, to be made available across the country from next week pic.twitter.com/gHVXZ98cLD — ANI (@ANI) December 2, 2020 As per the news reports, the vaccine has been authorised for emergency use by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA), ahead of decisions by the US and Europe. The MHRA was given the power to approve the vaccine by the government under special regulations before 1 January, when it will become fully responsible for medicines authorisation in the UK after Brexit. When Will The Vaccine Be Launched A news report in The Guardian mentioned that the first doses of the vaccine will arrive in the coming days, according to the company. The UK has bought 40m doses of the vaccine, which has been shown to have 95% efficacy in its final trials. © counterpoint research “Today’s emergency use authorisation in the UK marks a historic moment in the fight against Covid-19. This authorisation is a goal we have been working toward since we first declared that science will win, and we applaud the MHRA for their ability to conduct a careful assessment and take timely action to help protect the people of the UK,” Albert Bourla, the chairman and chief executive officer of Pfizer said. “As we anticipate further authorisations and approvals, we are focused on moving with the same level of urgency to safely supply a high-quality vaccine around the world. With thousands of people becoming infected, every day matters in the collective race to end this devastating pandemic.” Who Will Get The Vaccine First © Reuters The first priority groups for vaccination are the Care Home residents, who may not be able to come to a vaccination centre, together with the staff who look after them. At fridge temperatures, it may be possible for the vaccine to be brought to them. Next in line will be the over-80s and NHS staff. Here’s What The Trial Data Showed The trial data showed the vaccine had equal efficacy among younger volunteers and those over 65 who are most at risk from Covid. Gender, race and ethnicity also made no difference. © BCCL Pfizer and BioNTech say their combined manufacturing network has the potential to supply globally up to 50m vaccine doses in 2020 and up to 1.3bn doses by the end of 2021. Other Details The delivery of the UK’s 40m doses will start immediately. UK Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, has said he expects 10m doses to arrive this year. Delivery will continue throughout 2020 and 2021 in stages “to ensure an equitable allocation of vaccines across the geographies with executed contracts.” The US, which has ordered 100m doses, and Europe, which has bought 200m, are expected to approve the vaccine within weeks. © Reuters The MHRA has moved with unprecedented speed to grant emergency use authorisation within just a week, having received the final data from the companies on 23 November. It has been carrying out a rolling approval process, scrutinising data from early trials as they came in. “The emergency use authorisation in the UK will mark the first time citizens outside of the trials will have the opportunity to be immunised against Covid-19,” said Ugur Sahin, the CEO and co-founder of BioNTech. “We believe that the rollout of the vaccination programme in the UK will reduce the number of people in the high-risk population being hospitalised. Our aim is to bring a safe and effective vaccine upon approval to the people who need it. The data submitted to regulatory agencies around the world are the result of a scientifically rigorous and highly ethical research and development programme,” Sahin added. Well, this certainly gives us all hope for a better future and finally, a COVID-free world! View the full article
