  1. About two months ago, there were rumours floating about that Rami Malek might be the new Bond villain and well, it's finally confirmed! Can you imagine, a guy, who was once in a 'Twilight' movie is now not just an Oscar winner but also the new Bond villain? Yeah, me neither. I feel like no one really remembered Rami Malek playing a vampire in the last 'Twilight' movie, and it's safe to say he's come a long, long way since then. The announcement came during a press event which included a handful of the cast, including James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, along with director Cary Fukunaga where they teased the new movie. Even though Rami himself wasn't present, he did make sure to send a video message, confirming he'll be the new 'Bond 25' villain. A word about #BOND25 from Rami Malek pic.twitter.com/CLJ5mpO9mu — James Bond (@007) April 25, 2019 Already giving out a warning to 007, he said, “I promise you all, I will be making sure Mr Bond does not have an easy ride in this, his twenty-fifth outing.” Honestly, I can totally see him as an evil and menacing villain, he really fits the role perfectly. Well, the reason he wasn't in Jamaica with Bond himself was that he appeared on Good Morning America and obviously, he talked about his new villainous ways. He, of course, praised Daniel Craig and said, “It'll be very interesting to go up against that man.” .@ItsRamiMalek on being the villain in the next @007 movie: "It's thrilling...they're timeless movies." #Bond25 pic.twitter.com/p4Rcx54E3t — Good Morning America (@GMA) April 25, 2019 Well, he can't really say anything more as of now, but he had a warning yet again - “I'm gonna give him a run for his money.” Considering this is Daniel Craig's last stint as Bond, it'll surely be a memorable one and him going against Rami just makes it even more interesting.
  2. Four years after its original announcement, Aston Martin's first all-electric car is finally here. The company's Rapide sedan called the “Rapide E” made its debut at the Shangai Auto Show yesterday. Aston Martin didn't announce a price for the car, but it said only 155 Rapide E cars will ever be made. However, do you know what are we most excited about? To see Agent 007 drive the new all-electric car in the next Bond movie. For those of you who don't know, Aston Martin cars and James Bond movies have a huge history. Aston Martin's relationship with the 007 franchise began in 1964 when Sean Connery drove a DB5 sports car in Goldfinger. Well, if the reports are something to go by, the upcoming 25th James Bond (https://www.mensxp.com/special-features/james-bond-lifestyle/7551-10-best-james-bond-outfits.html) movie will see our 007 agent drive the new Rapide E. Of course, there's a lot of swift action sequences in the movie, and we think it's about time to put our agent in a zero-emission vehicle. © Aston Martin The new Rapide E is a powerful machine. It's powered by an 800-volt, 65kWh battery, which Aston Martin says will be able to travel over 200 miles on a single charge. The car has a twin motor fitted on the rear axle, which can generate 450kW and can get the car up to a top speed of 155 miles per hour. Also, the new Aston Martin Rapide E can go from 0 to 60 miles in under four seconds. The car is packed with a lot of other gizmos like a 10-inch digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, an 8-inch display mounted atop the centre of the dashboard, and more. The new Rapide E was said to hit the road in 2018, but there's no official word on its availability yet.
  3. Diljit Dosanjh and Lilly Singh are two celebrities who are most popular with millennials all over the world. While Lilly Singh is a social media sensation across the globe, and enjoys huge following even in her motherland India, Diljit Dosanjh needs no introduction as such since his every other song has been doing all the talking for this terrific singer-turned-actor. View this post on Instagram New video coming today and can I just say I went to literal hell and back to make it happen. So stay tuned... unless a lightening bolt strikes my laptop and destroys it which is honestly not that unlikely at this point ð #IfBollywoodSongsWereRap any guess which song this is from?! ðð½ A post shared by Lilly Singh (@iisuperwomanii) on Mar 27, 2019 at 6:46pm PDT A popular YouTuber, Lilly Singh aka Superwoman was recently topping trends charts for her video titled 'If Bollywood Songs Were Rap' where she talks about women's rights and being Indian in a world dominated by men and the white man's burden. While our man Diljit Dosanjh has been in the news for his upcoming Bollywood project 'Good News' which also stars Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Kiara Advani. The first look of the film was released a few hours ago. View this post on Instagram Superwoman ... Gud artist .. God bless her @iisuperwomanii #diljitdosanjh A post shared by Diljit Dosanjh (@diljitdosanjh) on Apr 30, 2013 at 1:28pm PDT However, today, Lilly and Diljit are yet again trending all over social media, and for a reason that is so desi, and so completely Punjabi that every Indian, regardless of their geographical location, will be able to relate to it. View this post on Instagram Toronto Di Lilly Te DosanjhanWala ð When Two Punjabis meet ð¤ð¤© @iisuperwomanii @humblethepoet A post shared by Diljit Dosanjh (@diljitdosanjh) on Apr 4, 2019 at 8:43pm PDT The video is their take on what happens when two theth Punjabis meet each other, in any part of this world, in whatever company and under any given circumstance. The video is on-point and totally relatable. © Instagram Lilly's caption for the video pretty much sums it up perfectly well: “When you meet someone from the motherland. This is DEF how Punjabis greet each other, complete with a 5 minute long hand holding session and family tree check in. To be honest, @diljitdosanjh and I aren't even acting... someone was just rolling when we met up.” Lilly was recently in India for the YouTube Fanfest and met up with Diljit who happens to be an old friend. These two go back a long way, and we totally love what they have whipped up.
  4. What can be more exciting for an Indian sports fan than seeing two of the country's biggest sporting icons come together? Recently, one of the best cricketers in the world, Virat Kohli, invited the prolific skipper of the Indian football team, Sunil Chhetri, who has more goals for his country than Leo Messi for Argentina, to a net session with the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad. © AP As we all know, both the skippers get along really well and have a history of making their friendship known publicly. Last year, Kohli reiterated Chhetri's plea to support Indian football and this year, Chhetri showing up at his training camp shows the growing bromance between both the icons. This meeting was just another chapter in their bromance. Both Chhetri and Kohli looked quite dynamic on the field. While the football skipper was cheered by his recent exploits in the Indian Super League (ISL) with Bengaluru FC, it was interesting to see King Kohli smiling, especially after his team, FC Goa ended up on the losing side against Chettri's Banglore FC 1-0 in the final of the tournament. © AP Keeping their ISL loyalties aside, both the players were seen sharing a laugh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. A video uploaded by a fan page shows Kohli giving a heart-warming welcome to his beloved friend before the RCB squad. Later in the day, both went on sharing a few dribbles and strokes on the field. View this post on Instagram @chetri_sunil11 today with @royalchallengersbangalore team at Chinnaswamy ! ðâ¤ï¸ A post shared by BleedKohlism2.0ðµ (@bleedingkohlism) on Mar 19, 2019 at 5:57am PDT On the one hand, where Chhetri's side just wrapped up their league season, Kohli & Co are gearing up for the Indian Premier League opening match against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings on 23rd March. This season, Kohli and his men will be hoping to better their disappointing IPL records and showcase their true worth on the field.
  5. For the second Ambani Weddding run, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta tied the knot at Jio World Centre in Mumbai on March 9. The wedding was attended by celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, among others and we saw a lot of interesting outfits by the end of it. The one interesting twinning we want to talk about today is not of a couple or two best friends or of two people linked by blood. © Instagram Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar decided to show their bond to the rest of the world by twinning in Sabyasachi yellow. While Alia wore a a bright yellow lehenga choli, Johar went for a kurta pyjama in the same colour. Karan Johar undeniably has major influence on Bollywood. People definitely can't take him lightly. Having mentored Alia, he shares a close bond with her. If the popular kids of Bollywood decide to make yellow the new pink, no one can object to that. © Instagram View this post on Instagram Alia Bhatt @aliaabhatt in Sabyasachi clothing and jewellery for Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's wedding in Mumbai.

  6. Can you imagine a guy, who was once in a Twilight movie is now a freaking Oscar winner? Yeah, me neither. I feel like no one really remembered Rami Malek playing a vampire in the last Twilight movie, and it's safe to say he's come a long, long way since then. Rami is still being smothered in praises for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and now, he has another incredible role already lined up. Turns out, he's going to play the villain in the next Bond movie. Actually, it's not like his Oscar win had to do anything with him getting the role, the only problem was scheduling, as he had to shoot for 'Mr Robot'. But, now it seems like everything has been figured out and the negotiations are almost done. Get ready, we will probably have a cool new Bond villain soon! Everyone is! Rami Malek going from Freddie Mercury to Bond villain? I'm down for that! https://t.co/mqZJ63mOTw — Tyler Calvert (@Tyler_Calvert23) February 27, 2019 Just to be clear, they wanted him before the Oscar win. They love getting recent Oscar winners for their villains. First Javier Bardem, then Christoph Waltz, now Rami Malek. I dig it. — charley15z (@tcallerman) February 27, 2019 Let him! Please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth. https://t.co/d0lzkKx84j — Adam Lowes (@adlow76) February 27, 2019 He would be, tbh. This makes me very happy. I could see Rami Malek becoming an iconic Bond villain given the talent involved in this movie. https://t.co/u9vIoxxecd — Nolan Dean ð(he/him) (@nolandean27) February 28, 2019 Everything is a surprise! Damn, Rami's career is like rocket science. I remember when he was playing as Benjamin in Breaking Dawn. Now he got an Oscar and playing as villain in Bond 25. ðhttps://t.co/Yu8mLTrHEV — Dinda. (@ClaireBearStory) February 27, 2019 I need to check them out now. If you've seen Rami Malek in interviews you'll know he's already a Bond villain. — Dan Marcus (@Danimalish) February 28, 2019 He really is. Awards season made me side eye him, but he's a great actor. I'm into it. https://t.co/DoVqO4rN4G — Ami (@Amic_8197) February 27, 2019 He would be so good. LISTEN I like this. Despite the steaming pile of garbage that is Bohemian Rhapsody, I think that Malek is a very good actor and I definitely think he would make a cool, suave, unpredictable villain. Especially in a Cary Fukunaga movie! https://t.co/fPwfE2xSFa — Mary (@mareli221) February 27, 2019 Yes, everyone. Am I going to watch a Bond movie purely for Rami? Of course https://t.co/pt00ayKnhg — zoe is kinda ia (@arcofagamotto) February 28, 2019 Someone make it happen! Me reading this tweet still waiting for @idriselba to be announced as bond. pic.twitter.com/VGx7juuMpv — Mike Namez (@MikeNamez) February 27, 2019 It would kill it! imagine idris elba as bond and rami malek as the villian... THE FLAVOR https://t.co/2YcFNke6wJ — amber (@tyrellwellthic) February 27, 2019 Can't wait. Rami Malek is rumoured to be the next Bond villain, can't wait for him to add 16 syllables to "Mr Bond" — Cam Williams (@MrCamW) February 28, 2019
  7. You have read her name in headlines all this week, you have seen her trending on all social media platforms and you know you have already stalked her on Instagram, but there is very little that is known about Harleen Sethi, a gorgeous woman with immense talent inculcated in her. View this post on Instagram But "just friends" don't look at each other like that ð #justsaying #aankhonhiaankhonmein #indianwedding #ranipink #anitadongre #gotapatti A post shared by Harleen Sethi (@itsharleensethi) on Sep 21, 2018 at 8:25am PDT Just like most people on the internet, our curiosity got the best of us and we finally got to speak to the beautiful woman herself. I had a few questions in mind before we talked, you know how you try do a bit of Google search, gather whatever little information you can, wondering how the celebrity in question will be like. We hit it off well from the word 'Hello' because first of all, similar names you see, and secondly, Harleen comes across as a very warm person. My first obvious question was that how did acting happened to this pretty woman. Harleen spoke about the days when she was a dancer and during one of the projects where she was a dancer, she got the offer to do an ad film. Then one thing led to another and before she knew it, she had already done over 50 to 70 odd ad films.

She is currently being seen on ALT Balaji's web series titled 'Broken But Beautiful', which Harleen explains is about how two broken people , who are stuck in time in their respective ways, meet and end up being a mirror for the other person. The love story is a mature, complicated and a layered one which takes you on a journey of its own.

Show releases on 27th Nov at 1pm on @altbalaji #BrokenButBeautiful #2daystogo #AltBalajiOriginal A post shared by Harleen Sethi (@itsharleensethi) on Nov 24, 2018 at 11:33pm PST I asked her about the kind of roles she'd like to take up and if there was any role she'd love to do and she was quick to add that she is a fan of women-centric roles and Alia's role in 'Raazi' would be something she'd have loved to take up. Amongst the name of directors who she really wants to work with, Imtiaz Ali , Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane are on top of the list. Moving to her favourite actors she'd like to share the screen with, Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal made it to Harleen's list. View this post on Instagram I am. Photographer ð· @amitverma_in A post shared by Harleen Sethi (@itsharleensethi) on Nov 21, 2018 at 10:09pm PST When Vicky's name came, I had to address the elephant in the room so I was quite eager to ask about the rumours doing the rounds about this wonderful lady being the special someone in B-town's eligible bachelor Vicky Kaushal's life. For some context, the handsome actor was on Neha Dhupia's show where he was asked to dedicate a song for Harleen and he was quick to sing Diljit's 'Do You Know'. View this post on Instagram He's self obsessed and we are obsessed with him. Hear @vickykaushal09 at his most wicked best on #nofilterneha only on @saavn Co produced by @wearebiggirl ð link in bio âï¸ A post shared by Neha Dhupia (@nehadhupia) on Nov 22, 2018 at 1:28am PST Naturally, I had to ask her if she could throw some light and put our curious minds to rest because there are girls who have their hearts broke thinking about Vicky not being single, and then there are boys who have realised that Harleen is their latest crush and are already crushed wondering if she is not single as well! She of course has a hearty laugh (that too a melodious, musical one), and then spills the beans on their 'bond'. 'We share a good bond, there is a kind of comfort level we have that is wonderful', she says. I ask her if she would dedicate a song for him, so she adds that Diljit's 'Putt Jatt Da' would describe him well. If you're wondering how did they meet, well, they met at a party, through common friends and connected instantly. Well, that's exactly how love stories blossom in today's age after all! We can't wait for the two 'close friends' to work together in a project soon and let their natural chemistry reflect on the screen.
  8. A father and son share a rather inscrutable equation, which is often regarded as a rocky terrain to tread by both the parties, mostly once the son attains adulthood. While it is believed that a son shares a much deeper bond with his mother, what is often left unsaid is that a son and a father continue to share a bond that isn't marked by an overt display of affection or endearments, and yet each remains in the other's thoughts and prayers. Dads give it off to you when you become unruly, they have your back all along the wobbly patch of life and they always shadow you, keeping a watch out and a step forward, even before you can form the sentence to call out for help. A son might not always express what his father means to him, but continues to hail him as his personal hero, even as he challenges his father's orders or argues over other issues of lesser importance. No matter the disagreements and clashes in their point of view, he always acknowledges his father's presence and importance in his life. While there have been numerous, successful movies in Bollywood that have captured the myriad shades of this relationship, we picked 5 recent Bollywood films that have managed to do justice to the father-son dynamics. 1. 102 Not Out (2018) © SPE Films India '102 Not Out' is quintessentially the best representation of how a father-son dynamic remains at the very roots, even after both of them enter the twilight of their lives. A father, without ever making it obvious, selflessly continues to look out for his son and love him from afar. Though misunderstandings loom large even at this stage of their lives, love ultimately triumphs over the petty tussles. Before Dattatraya departs from this life, he ensures that Babu lives a full life, free of life's drudgeries and finds ways of remaining happy after his father is gone. 2. Sanju (2018) © Rajkumar Hirani Films It is common knowledge that Sanjay Dutt has always shared a rocky relationship with his father for a number of reasons. Yet, Sanjay Dutt continued to regard his father as an almighty saviour. 'Sanju' beautifully captures all the bumps that marked their relationship, be it fighting against his father's opinions on his acting skills or not living by his father's ideologies. Yet, when life brought him to the edge, he turned to his father for help and Sunil Dutt continued to place his faith and hope on his son regardless of the shortcomings. 3. Mulk (2018) © Benaras Media Works This may not come across as an ideal father-son relationship but on a closer look, Bilaal Ali Mohammed's portrayal of Shahid's father significantly captures a father's innate essence. He depicts a father who places undying trust and faith on this son he has reared and would move mountains to protect and love. Bilaal continuously tried to bring Shahid back from devil's side and onto the path of repentance, but when he realises there remains no coming back for his son, he literally gives up on Shahid, thereby exhibiting a father's wrath in the truest sense. 4. Chef (2017) © T-Series 'Chef', the official Bollywood remake of the Hollywood movie by the same name, is the story of Roshan Kalra who is a Michelin star chef at New York's Gulli restaurant. Having gotten fired from his job, he has to come back home to his son and wife in Kochi. The trip helps Roshan to mend his relationships that had gone sour, especially his bond with his son. This story beautifully charts out how the duo reclaims and rediscovers their relationship, which ends up changing their lives and they set out on a culinary journey together. 5. Dear Dad (2016) © Peppermint Studios A coming of age movie in the truest sense, this one explores how a young son steps up to stand by his father's side, much against the inner conflict he faces. Based on a difficult subject, the story follows the son's battles of coming to terms with his father's sexuality. It truthfully showcases how testing situations can become when family becomes the one to hurt you and how you make peace with the reality of the situation. If you haven't already, be sure to watch these movies at the earliest.
  9. The might of an actor lies in their ability to act, yes, but it is equally about creating an impact capable of leaving the audience intrigued and hooked on for more. An actor does not just portray a character and performs on stage or the screen, but also works on the delivery that does justice to the demands of the character and renders it memorable to every theatre or movie-goer. While we talk about such fine actors, there's got to be a mention of the man of the moment, who has every cinema enthusiast going gaga about the endless possibilities over a particular '007' development. © Reuters News has surfaced that we might be looking at Idris Elba as the next “double-o-seven” in the making and we couldn't be more satisfied with the choice. Known best for his dynamic acting skills and a voice that has played a pivotal role to making many roles highly memorable (think Shere Khan in the 'Jungle Book'), we bear no doubts that Idris makes for a great fit as “Bond, James Bond” in the upcoming movies after Daniel Craig's departure from the franchise next year. More On The Man Himself © Reuters For those who might not be well aware of the man in question, Idris Elba is a 45-year-old British actor, who has made a name and carved a niche for himself in Hollywood. Fondly remembered for his stellar performance as Stringer in 'The Wire' and BBC's home production drama 'Luther', Idris has time and again showed the world that he holds immense potential to go from suave to ruthless and from sinister to disarming in a matter of few characters (or even frames for that matter). The news of him having potentially bagged the role of 007 started doing the rounds when he posted this intriguing tweet - my name's Elba, Idris Elba. pic.twitter.com/kEyyaVg8JX — Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018 This got the tabloids into a frenzy and the news soon hit the screens across the world. However, within a little while, after the 'hype' began to gain momentum, Elba posted a new tweet that acted as sort of a killjoy to all the premature celebrations. This is what he had to say - Don't believe the HYPE... — Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018 While we agree that we'd love to have a confirmation, this tweet has, however, left all of us hanging and we simply can't wait for a confirmation (or sadly even a denial) on the rumours! Now, while we have been voicing our support for this choice, you surely didn't expect us to leave you hanging without giving you valid reasons for it. Here are Elba's performances in 5 major productions that will re-affirm that he is indeed the best choice for the iconic role. 1. Stringer Bell From 'The Wire' © YouTube We had to kick off our argument with this one. The character of Stringer Bell portrayed by Elba in 'The Wire' is perhaps how the world went gaga over the man. His captivating and charismatic take on the aide de camp to a drug lord Barksdale, goes well with the cool and panache exhibited by Bond in difficult situations. Stringer Bell is calm and calculative with a display of intelligence we identify with 007. Convincingly cutthroat and well assessed in his means to achieve his targets, Bell reminds us of Bond's obsession of completing his missions to the T. 2. John Luther From 'Luther' © YouTube The titular role that put Elba on the map was that of detective John Luther who exhibited more than a few similarities to Bond's ways in this show. The otherwise calm Luther's demeanour stood out in greater contrast when he lost his cool, again reminding us of Bond, who is known to play to cool and sharp at all times. The show's violent edge also comes in handy when we're trying to pitch the two characters' combating skills against each. Severe and exuding vibes that scream danger, Luther chooses to stay aloof and within a shell, with not many friendships to count on, much like Bond. 3. Commandant From 'Beasts Of No Nation' © YouTube Another one of Elba's memorable portrayals, he does justice to the characters that are complex and flawed with defunct morals. His portrayal of a brutal and nuanced commandant or leader of a militia sets him as the predator who fights for the cause. The Commandant stands as an example of how situations can turn any man into a beast. The character and its struggles are relatable and on the other hand, remind us of Bond and his skilled antics and methods to achieve his goal without caring about the means. Charisma, strategy and resources all pulled into one - like Commandant, like Bond! 4. Nelson Mandela From 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' © YouTube When most actors shuddered at the idea, Elba came through as the perfect fit to play one of the world's most loved political leaders of all times. The stellar performance he renders in the movie befits Mandela's amazing life story. Elba effortlessly presented the leader's struggles and strengths, thereby giving the world a closer look at the man's life. From the myriad shades of Mandela that he showcases on the screen, it can be said that he possesses the capability to portray the multi-hued and demanding character of James Bond. 5.
