ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsDiljit Dosanjh and Badshah just appeared together on the latest episode of 'Koffee With Karan', and we can safely conclude that this has been one of the best episodes of the season. While we saw the lighthearted camaraderie between the rockstars, we also saw the savage competition between them when it came to the game rounds. © Hotstar One of the highlights of the episode was the fashion quiz, which we have never seen on KWK before. Honestly, we could tell that this episode had to do a lot with fashion as soon as Karan Johar started telling us about how he is absolutely committed to his airport looks, and that they are a big deal for him.

While Badshah started all guns blazing, Diljit caught up, quickly. © Hotstar © Hotstar The competition kept getting more fierce by minute, and one could see Diljit's focus getting steadier and steadier, till he started belting out the label names with a greater dedication than KJo chooses his airport looks with.

Kudos, Paaji!
Thanks To Social Media, Millennials Are Now Creating Their Own Online Brands & It's A Stellar Win
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWe have moved on from the long landline calls that carried the most minute details of our lives, to more real-time mediums of “keeping in touch” such as WhatsApp, tweets and writings on the wall. The physical holiday postcards and bulky photo albums have given way to “aesthetically woke” Instagram feeds, and the family reunions seem insincerely more crazy in the visual stories on social media platforms, than they did in real life. © Y-Films These are just a few instances of how heavily we've come to depend on social media for our daily dose of “getting by”. Be it the news we consume, the communities we follow or the influencers we allow to “inspire” us, there is so much that social media adds to our life on a daily basis. Exchange of information and ideas has to be the greatest highlight of social media's portfolio, but there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. With 'age no bar' as its tagline and the democratisation of social media, more and more people are getting on these platforms to find something or the other that caters to their interests. This has not only led to a big boom in the virtual space, but has also allowed an entire generation to get a breakthrough, in the form of voice, reach and audience. © Y-Films Let's take the TikTok rage that's gripped the nation this year, into consideration. TikTok, erstwhile known as Musical.ly, was the world's most downloaded app in the first quarter of 2018, with as many as 45.8 million downloads! From Bollywood and Hollywood A-listers to TV stars and the common man, almost everybody has given in to the temptation of these short video formats, that majorly showcase people posting their dance or acting videos on the app. The world has found innumerable rising stars on the platform, who have also caught the attention of the who's who in the world of cinema and TV. Remember Najeem Khan? This comes with the added benefit of ditching the middlemen and the casting couches, but more than anything else, it allows talented individuals to “launch” themselves in the visual arts market on their own, purely on the basis of their creativity and merit. © Y-Films The same goes for the YouTubers, bloggers and Instagrammers, who have found a way to create their own brands across social media platforms, influence and inspire people, as well as make big bucks, and a full-fledged career out of it. The online community and its reach are such, that 'followers' hold the power to turn you into an online celebrity of sorts, within a span of a few months. However, the promise of a lucrative career isn't the only aspect we're looking at when we talk about the power of social media. There's so much more to this entire space, that's unequivocally potent. India's #MeToo moment is still gathering speed, and all the outing is enabling men and women to call out their abusers/harassers and publicly shame them for their deed. This initiative, regardless of the painful wounds and trauma it reignites, has armed and enabled people to take courage and speak out. The power dichotomy is finally being shaken, due to the mass movement online. So, whether it is an exposé involving a celebrity or a politician, that we love to lap up at all times, or the possibility of reaching out to the people concerned with your opinions and grievances, social media has suddenly turned into a tool that's enabling people from all walks of life, and allowing them a medium and chance to get heard. Social Media Marketer and Quoran, Megha Anand, believes that more than importance, “necessity is an apt word” for social media. She adds that “it is a fact that social media has tremendously changed the way people interact and carry on with their everyday lives, it's as essential as any other thing in your life”. Hence, whether it is job hunting, creating a support group or starting your own business, social media plays a key role in trying to help you shape and present yourself to the world. Of course it has its shortcomings, yes it can be addictive in nature, and social media can definitely be put into negative use by the virtual mafia, but it largely depends on how you use it to communicate with an audience, and share your most private moments, thoughts and opinions with the rest of the world. Social media gives you the popularity, recognition and power to reach out to millions of people at the click of a button, who most often take you by your word and look up to you to make up their personal opinions. That is a power every social media user must put to good use at all times, thereby helping the world to be a more positive place.
Almost everybody works out (or at least everyone should), but if there's one mistake that most men make, it's of not wearing the right workout apparel or worse, turning up to the gym in loungewear. Unfortunately, your gym is the one place that calls for specific apparel, technologically-enhanced clothing (made from sweat absorbing fabric), to ensure you work out in your best capacity and don't end up annoying your skin too much. After all, the wrong fabrics through excessive sweating can cause more harm to your skin than good. But why do a lot of men not invest in proper workout gear? In our opinion, besides laziness, it has a lot to do with budget constraints as well; a lot of brands aren't affordable for the common Indian man. But voila, today, we've concised a list of (really) affordable brands, from which you can easily source your workout gear: 1. HRX by Hrithik Roshan © Facebook/HRX Hrithik has always been a fitness freak! Hence, he channeled all that passion and created an apparel brand for the gym wear needs of Indian men. HRX is your one-stop shop for literally everything — gym trainers, socks, T-shirts, vests, joggers and track pants, all available in a range of sizes for Indian men. Made from breathable cotton fabrics, each of these HRX's pieces allow the skin to breathe, while you're working out and sweating profusely. USP: Literally, A one-stop shop for Gym Gear Approx. Price Range: Rs. 500 - 2,000 Buy it here! 2. Fiber Fit © Fiber Fit Though Fiber Fit is a brand that specialises in T-shirts and vests for the gym, their motivational slogans are the biggest USP. Every piece is made of bio-washed cotton, that's extremely soft and very durable. The company aims to create relatable and affordable pieces to wear to the gym and be your go-to source for effective but also, very spiffy clothing.

Aesthetic Nation © Aesthetic Nation A brand that aims to add some aesthetics to your gym wardrobe, Aesthetic Nation's clothing range is very diverse- track pants, shorts, T-shirts, vests and even hoodies for when the temperature drops.
