  1. One of the leading ladies of international cricket and Kiwi superstar Hayley Jensen and her fellow athlete from Down Under, Nicola Hancock decided to make their cricketing partnership last a lifetime, as the couple tie the knot last weekend. Having been teammates for two straight seasons for Australia's Big Bash League franchise, Melbourne Stars, the couple saw a lot of individual success in the T20 league. While Jensen, an all-rounder, won the prestigious Una Paisley medal for being Victoria Women's Premier Cricket league's best player of the 2017-18 season, Hancock finished the latest season of the BBL as her squad's second-highest wicket-taker with 13 scalps in 14 games with an average of 19.92. The official news of the wedding was broken online by Hancock's team last evening: From #TeamGreen, congratulations to Stars bowler Nicola Hancock who married her partner Hayley Jensen last weekend! ðpic.twitter.com/QvWb7Ue0Qx — Melbourne Stars (@StarsBBL) April 18, 2019 "From #TeamGreen, congratulations to Stars bowler Nicola Hancock who married her partner Hayley Jensen last weekend!" the picture was captioned. Australia legalised same-*** marriage in December 2017 while New Zealand granted it the royal assent way back in 2013. However, as soon as the wedding pictures were available online, homophobia took over with the blink of an eye and flooded the team's twitter handle with slurs demeaning same-*** marriage: It isn't ryt — NITESH KUMAR (@nkojha9060) April 19, 2019 Challenge to Natural law — Kapil Kumar (@KapilKu03594795) April 19, 2019 Oh no It is unnatural marrige I think human is very beg animals — बà¥à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾à¤° मà¥à¥à¤®à¥à¤®à¤¿à¤² फारà¥à¤à¥ (@MuzzammilFar) April 19, 2019 What a great indecent choice this sodomy women make to defile themselves — Joshua (@Joshua3059) April 18, 2019 If all girls will marry to each other then what will happen with boys or u can say who will marry with boys. I think this is unnatural. — kmljee (@kmljee) April 18, 2019 Pls stop these kind of activities this is uncertain and not good for the society — JSP Tarak (@TDPTARAK) April 19, 2019 Cricket is meant to be a gentleman's game,, what happened to the world??????? — Samiullah Saifi (@Samiull91563821) April 18, 2019 One common response to such homophobia is that it is the part of the society and that homosexual people have to be mentally strong enough to make such a decision and face the society with their heads held high, but why? Maybe that is the question that needs to be answered now. With the LGBTQ community being welcomed into society with open arms, why is it that marriage, a gesture to celebrate love, needs for the people involved to “prepare themselves”? Do straight couples need to worry about the kind of criticism that they might face from society after they get married? Sure, homosexuality has become a part of the world that we live in and sure people now have the right to identify themselves as “gay”, but normalising it, in our mundane lives, is something that continues to be our "to-do” list
  2. Looks like the audience cannot get enough of being 'tabaah ho gaye' after watching and experiencing the magnum opus of this year, 'Kalank'. The Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer movie is a tale of pain and love set amidst the backdrop of the pre-partition era and while many expectations have been shattered in a day, the memes cannot stop pouring on our social media feeds. Audience after watching Kalank. #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/FxGps5Bb2y — Sagar (@sagarcasm) April 17, 2019 Audience in theatre: #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/cdD93CUqEv — Bwoy Bakchod (@bwoybakchod) April 17, 2019 People are claiming they tried hard to find something they can actually like about the movie but alas, they couldn't. Audience looking for good story, plot, screenplay, entertainment in kalank. #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/bFdxBztsdv — SwatKatð (@swatic12) April 17, 2019 Also, while many loved Varun's acting, some ended up making him the meme itself.

  3. After teasing his fans for months, the official teaser of Arjun Kapoor's 'India's Most Wanted' is finally out and looks like we'll see Arjun in a never-seen-before avatar. The teaser begins with a voice-over and partial glimpses of a man who is nameless and faceless. He is the mastermind behind 52 bomb blasts, which killed as many as 433 people and left 810 injured and shook the nation from its core. Fox Star Studios In a bone-chilling voice, the man says "A soul never dies, only the body dies. I am not killing people, just sending them into another body. I am not saying this, this was said by Shri Krishna in the sacred Gita." The nameless man is then referred to as India's Osama, the most dreaded terrorist. Fox Star Studios Arjun Kapoor appears in the later part of the video as Prabhaat, an intelligence officer who is willing to catch the nameless and faceless terrorist, but without any guns or support. Jut like the description of the video says, "A manhunt with no guns, no glory, only guts." Since, Arjun Kapoor and his team of unsung heroes are not going to use any guns, we wonder if they will catch him by shouting 'Thain Thain'. While Arjun Kapoor appeared in the second half of the teaser, we are more intrigued to know more about the guy playing the antagonist. We'll get to know it once the movie releases on 24th May. Inspired by true events, 'India's Most Wanted' is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta.
  4. If you are a fan of some long shots that give the ball-collectors present in the stands a literal run for their money, then you have to appreciate the knock played by the West Indies cricketer and interim Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Kieron Pollard in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Ravichandran Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). His thunderous innings which included a 83-run-barrage in just 31 balls with 10 humongous sixes and three fours successfully delivered on the expectations of all of 33,000 MI fans present at the Wankhede Stadium and millions watching at home. Hardik: Kieron Pollard is a legend. Only one man could've done this.#OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/YcUKauYTWv — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) April 10, 2019 When the 6'5'' tall beast of an athlete had stepped in, MI's chances of winning seemed to be extremely slim as they had to score 142 runs in just 70 balls. However, when the captain got dismissed by getting caught out by David Miller off of an Ankit Rajpoot delivery in the final over, MI had to make only 4 runs off 4 balls. Such was the impact of Pollard's bat. Ashwin and the rest of the bowlers of Kings XI tried every single trick from their book but could not shake the batsman's concentration. Hardus Viljoen tried to get under Pollard's skin by walking up to him and checking for a ball's print on his shoulder but couldn't. Rajpoot himself tried to irk the veteran ahead of the final over when he took a long run-up down the ground only to stop in the middle with a smile on his face followed by a wink directed across the pitch to the man. In return, Pollard sent his delivery (which turned out to be a 'no-ball') for a six and a four in the following free-hit delivery. Things became so frustrating for the losing skipper that he even tried a different bowling action after Pollard swung for another maximum in the previous ball. Now, despite having a decent IPL season, Ashwin has been in the news for his odd behaviour on the field. Earlier being thrashed for 'mankading' Rajasthan Royals' batter Jos Buttler and getting a photo of his face shredded by Buttler's English teammate James Anderson for the same, later on. So when the Chennai-born all-rounder changed the way he bowls, the cricketing world wanted to know what's up: What is wrong with Ashwin! He has 3 actions to bowl now. — Miraj. (@MirajMUFC) April 10, 2019 Pollard's reaction changed Ashwin's action #IPL2019 #MIvsKXIP — Vivek (@say2vivekkk) April 10, 2019 What type of action was this by Ashwin to Pollard?ð#MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/aIA4x9YvPK — Yash (@imyash19) April 10, 2019 Ravi Ashwin trying different type of actions (including round arm) and deliveries in order to bring variations.

  5. If you ever wished for Monday to be eliminated from the calendar altogether, trust me you're not alone. There's some air around this day that makes everyone hate it. I mean, there has to be something seriously wrong with this day if people look for motivation to survive through the day. So much so that they make '#MondayMotivation' trend every week, every month and every year. Talking about the hashtag 'Monday Motivation', one honorary contribution was made today by Abhishek Bachchan. The actor took to social media to share this inspiring quote with Floyd Mayweather's picture in the background. The quote read, "To be the best you have to work overtime." #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/omFsCjfGfY — Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) April 8, 2019 If only reading these inspiring quotes made us half as productive as our bosses expect us to be, things will be so much more convenient and better for us. And looks like we are not alone in thinking this way. Bollywood's King Khan aka Shah Rukh Khan too feels the same way, at least his tweet does. Shah Rukh Khan was quick to reply to Bachchan's tweet and wrote, "Thanks baby. Got this. Now please motivate me to Work On Time too!!" We feel you SRK, the struggle is way too real. Thanks baby. Got this. Now please motivate me to Work On Time too!! https://t.co/9qejCH9tIx — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 8, 2019 Everytime we find something interesting on the internet, the first thing you do is tag our work BFF and then wait for them to comment and react to it. Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan's twitter interaction too looks like what we have with our work BFFs everyday.
  6. They say that the circumstances and situations we face in life make us. The good, and especially the bad experiences, mould us into individuals with unique battle scars that we can proudly walk around with. Yet, it takes one of those rattling experiences to turn our lives around and save it from going completely downhill. A moment of clarity is all we need to find the strength to steer our lives around towards a better future, and that is exactly how the journey of celebrity nutritional consultant Jaydeep Bhuta reads. View this post on Instagram Stay tuned with RJ Palak on #RadioCity 91.1 every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12.15 PM for some quick tips by me on healthy and fit living! . . . #JaydeepBhuta #Food #Healthy #Fit #Fitness #FitnessLifystyle #FitLife #HealthyLifestyle #Foodie #FitFoodie #Radio A post shared by Jaydeep Bhuta (@jaydeepbhuta) on Feb 8, 2019 at 12:39am PST A proud Mumbaikar, Jaydeep is a well-known name in Mumbai's Vile Parle neighbourhood as the guy who changed his life, and helped others make theirs better as well. Born into a typical Gujju business family, Jaydeep enjoyed the hearty vegetarian Gujarati meals and snacks he was brought up on. Until one fine day in February 2015, when 28-year-old Jaydeep found himself veering towards the wrong side of the weighing scale. At 145kg, Jaydeep was clueless when he had lost track of his life to such a great extent. The jarring reality of his obesity shook him to the core, just as much as the multiple health concerns that stared at him right in the eyes. Over the years Jaydeep's weight kept crawling up while he continued to live his life without inhibitions. View this post on Instagram 2015, 140 Kgs It all started from here .. A post shared by Jaydeep Bhuta (@jaydeepbhuta) on Jul 23, 2018 at 6:19am PDT Finally when things really got out of hand, Jaydeep decided to do something about his situation. “My weight gain was slow, but it kept growing over time. Genetics also played a role. My family history shows we tend to show up on the higher side of the scale. I began experiencing difficulty in moving, had trouble breathing and sleeping, was lethargic. That's when I thought if I don't do something now, it'll become a problem beyond repair.” View this post on Instagram You may look at this transformation and say Wow! How did he do it? Everyone wants the secret to weight loss and the "quickest way” for achieving it. . The truth is, it's not only about the consistency of getting out of bed every morning to exercise or eating clean "Whole Food" but also the dedication, the lifestyle change & being happy mentally. . That's something you don't see here. Everyone has a transformation journey of their own, you may take a month, 6 months, a year or more depending on your goal. . In short, pen down your goal, start and stay dedicated. . #JaydeepBhuta #StayFit #StayHealthy#Transformations #FitnessLifeStyle #FitnessMantra #FitLife #Fit#HealthyLifestyle #ThursdayTransformation #InstaGramFitness #FitLifestyle #FitFoodie #Fitstagram #Health #InstaFitness #BeforeAndAfter #WeightLossJourney #Inspiration A post shared by Jaydeep Bhuta (@jaydeepbhuta) on Mar 7, 2019 at 6:34am PST With a 52 inch waistline and a body that had never known exercising, Jaydeep decided to seize his fast fading life and turn it into a healthy, full life. Talking about that point of his life, Jaydeep said, “I consulted many dieticians but nothing worked. I would lose a few kgs, and regain it as quickly. Eventually, after a few failed attempts, I realised that I would have to learn the science behind weight loss myself. I studied nutrition for two years.” View this post on Instagram The godfathers who guided me through my entire journey. It's time to meet them soon! .

Within a year's time, Jaydeep lost over 60kgs! Now weighing around 85kg, he had not only saved his life but also found a passion he wishes to explore more. As a certified nutritionist and fitness consultant, and with his weight loss to show for it, Jaydeep then began helping a few friends in need. View this post on Instagram Only love for this boy gang, bye bye UK! You've been more than kind ð #Wow #FamBam #UK2018 A post shared by Jaydeep Bhuta (@jaydeepbhuta) on Sep 30, 2018 at 4:15pm PDT “It worked for them as well, and then simply through word of mouth, more and more people began to drop by for consultations. At one point, when the number of clients grew significantly, the family business took a backseat. My clientele grew and suddenly I had almost 1500 clients, and a lot of Bollywood celebs were amongst them. From Priyanka Chopra to Varun Dhavan, Bobby Deol, Huma Qureshi and many politicians, a lot of well-known personalities have been my clients,” Jaydeep told MensXP. View this post on Instagram Happy bday to this beautiful human being..ð A post shared by Jaydeep Bhuta (@jaydeepbhuta) on Jan 1, 2019 at 5:34am PST Jaydeep's initiation as a celebrity nutritionist began with actress Sonali Bendre's husband Goldie Behl's weight loss journey. Soon other B-town celebrities approached him, and that is how Jaydeep got a chance to work with Bobby Deol. Jaydeep tells MensXP, “When I met him for the first time he was a little heavy, and though he was fit, he wanted to become fitter for a shirtless scene in 'Race 3'. We worked together on a plan and within three months he lost approximately 10kg. Over time Bobby Deol lost close to 15kg, so from being 90kg or so, we got his weight down to approximately 77-78kg.” View this post on Instagram Entered 2019 with the Deols..

He used to eat 3-4 times a day, besides the sweets and stuff I would send from my clinic. I would often change his diet plan according to his blood tests. I created a low carb diet. Along with weight training and cardio, he began showing positive results within 3 months. Salman Khan's trainer was working with him on his weight training, while I handled his entire diet plan.” View this post on Instagram Happy birthday Dharmendra uncle! ⤠. . #Dharmendra A post shared by Jaydeep Bhuta (@jaydeepbhuta) on Dec 7, 2018 at 11:36pm PST Now in his early 30s, Jaydeep has completely transformed his life.

One simple decision to do something about his waning life, changed everything for Jaydeep. “Today I have gained so much confidence, found a passion and turned that passion to work.

  7. If you've ever aspired to be like Jon Snow after watching 'Game Of Thrones', to pledge your life and honour to the Night's Watch, kill a White Walker with Valyrian steel and lead the army to fight the army of the dead...you could start with the hair. Here are tips to have a mane just like Snow: 1. The Hair Length © HBO Firstly, you need medium-to-thick density and also have a natural wavy or curly texture. This will enhance the 'Snow' look you're trying to achieve. A minimum of 6 months' growth is necessary for the mane to be as long as Snow if you're starting out with short hair. 2. The Texture © HBO If your hair is straight and lightweight, a good texturizing product will enhance the look for straight hair. If the hair is naturally more straight and needs more texture, the diffuser helps in setting the style so the hair doesn't dry smooth. 3. Trim Routinely © HBO Your hair won't just transform into Snow's mane on its own. Routine trims transition it into the aspired look. Keep the growth on the nape shorter and let the sides and top catch up in order for them to begin to grow in unison with the back hairline. Don't get it cut too often though. 4. Here's How To Style It © HBO For achieving the right texture, length, and density: wash and condition the hair. Then, apply the texturizing or curl-enhancing product or a sea salt spray. Later, comb the product through your hair, using a wide-tooth comb for even distribution, lastly shake the hair out.
  8. 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.
  9. The past year for the Real Madrid F.C. has been a real struggle. Starting with Cristiano Ronaldo's exit from the roster for Juventus back in July 2018 for a massive €100 million contract, Los Blancos found themselves in one of the biggest slumps of their entire history as they lost rather badly to Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) in the Round of 16 matchup of the Champions League in a 1-4 (3-5 on aggregate) goals defeat. After the massive upset, the team's management has decided to start afresh after firing Santiago Solari, the pride of Argentine football under whose interim reign, Real Madrid saw very little to no improvement. Bringing back Zinedine Zidane to head the city to the glory it had seen during the three seasons he was the manager there, team president Florentino Pérez Rodríguez is now aiming to upgrade Los Blancos' home-ground. For days now, Real Madrid F.C. have been boasting about their plans to give Santiago Bernabéu, a giant and high-tech facelift. ðð Take a look at the plans for the new Santiago Bernabéu! #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/ntXWHidlaa — Real Madrid C.F. ð¬ð§ðºð¸ (@realmadriden) April 2, 2019 According to TOI, the ameliorating will take about four years to complete with the stadium being fully functional by 2023. The new features will include a retractable roof, a titanium outside wall, along with a 360-degree scoreboard. In order to increase revenue generation out of the new customisations, the pedestrian areas will be installed with a huge megastore, multiple restaurants and bars, and also a museum dedicated to the stars and moments of the club. "We want this to be a great digital stadium of the future, and it will be paid for by the income its renovation will provide," said Perez. "And it will make Real Madrid more competitive at a time when the footballing landscape is becoming ever less certain." What is rather odd about the plans, however, is that the project which is going to set Perez's bank account back by € 525 million approximately, does not include any ideas of increasing the seating capacity of Bernabéu by a single chair. Real's rivals, Barcelona F.C., on the other hand, are amidst an upgradation of Camp Nou's capacity from 99,000 to 105,000 and will be good to go by 2023 as well.
  10. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has been in hot waters for a while now in India. From being banned to people getting arrested for playing it while the ban was in force, there has been a lot of chit-chat about the game. But now after a lot of criticism on social media, the ban imposed by the state of Gujarat on PUBG Mobile has finally been lifted. The decision came straight from the police commissioner A K Singh, after taking feedback from the public. © PUBG Corp. “Today is the last day of the proclamation we had issued. Yesterday, this matter came up for review and we decided that as the exam session is over and the direct trigger to initiating the action is not valid any more, we will not renew the proclamation. We have also taken public reaction into account, said the commissioner.' The game, in case you don't know, was banned for being violent and for inciting violence. It was also leading to accidental deaths, kids stealing money to buy in-game items, and more. Of course, banning the game wasn't an ideal solution, but that's apparently what the majority of people wanted. © PUBG Corp. Well, now that the ban has been lifted, let's not get carried away and spend all of our time playing it. It's high time that we, the players of the game, give it some thought and take some responsibility of our actions. Unless you are looking to dive in professionally, gaming is just a form of entertainment. Too much of it is not good for both your physical as well as mental health. As it turns out, you may even end up getting a game banned or end up in a jail for playing too much. So, let's focus on creating a healthy gaming environment, and enjoy ourselves while we are at it.
  11. Another day, another disappointment for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) who continue their winless streak in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) having played four matches and have found themselves at the bottom of the league's points table. After captain Kohli got dismissed by a magnificent Shreyas Gopal (who ended up with a three-wicket-haul), the second RCB opener, Parthiv Patel put the burden on his shoulders to help his side reach a respectable total of 158. Patel's bat contributed with 67 runs off 41 balls which also included 9 boundaries and a maximum. However, Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler and Steve Smith were too hot to handle for the men in red and gold as they spearheaded Royals to win their first game of the season. Having said that, Tuesday's match against Rajasthan got Virat Kohli an incredible feat to boast about as it provided him with the opportunity to captain an IPL squad for the 100th time and make him only the third cricketer in the world to do so, behind Chennai Super Kings star Mahendra Singh Dhoni (162 matches) and former IPL player, Gautam Gambhir (129 matches between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils. Today our skipper – @imVkohli becomes the third captain in IPL history to play as captain in 100 matches. Congratulations Virat, keep playing bold! #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/Ar5FASqB24 — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 2, 2019 Ironically, such a record that should normally bring a sense of pride to any athlete, also brings immense shame to RCB skipper as Kohli has the worst record amongst the men who have reached such a status. Amongst the 162 games led by Dhoni, he has a win percentage of 60.24% while Gambhir's is at 55.42% with three and two titles under their belts, respectively. Kohli, on the other hand, is at a below average mark of 46.87% wins as captain. Not to forget the fact that Bengaluru have never won the trophy. With another loss of the season in what appears to be a lost cause, RCB fans have resorted to humour to hide their pain but we see right through it: RCB Fans: When will we win our 1st IPL title???

  12. Alright! So, it's over. PewDiePie's fierce battle against T-Series has finally come to an end as the latter has gained a significant lead in terms of the subscriber count. In fact, Pewds knows that there's no coming back for him, and he has acknowledged his defeat in by releasing a new music video called 'Congratulations'. But you know what? The music video is not just PewDiePie conceding his defeat to T-Series. It's more about him taking a jab at the Bollywood music label and India, in general. To begin with, PewDiePie made it a point to accuse T-Series' executives by pulling out an old dirt on them. In the video, as you can see, he shows a Times Of India article from last year, which says that T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar being investigated for tax evasion. He also noted how T-Series started its business by selling pirated songs. Pewds also revealed that T-Series sent him a cease and desist letter following the release of his original diss track called 'Bitch Lasagna'. He then used the video to pull out things which people usually regard as defamatory. He even took a racist-jab at Indians by saying, “Indians are poo-poo in their brains'. Felix then went on to talk about India's caste system, crippling poverty, and more. That being said, the video is not just about accusations, and poop slurs. Towards the end of the video, PewDiePie also took a moment to thank his fans for all the support. He said, “So this is it, thanks for sticking with my channel. Ever since I was a nobody, screaming at barrels. This is it, it's been an adventure. It's the end of the reign of Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. Through all the change and controversy you've been by my side, there's no army in the world I would rather give me watch time. It's been a wild ride, so while I can still be heard, here's one last bro fist, from the number one in the world.” © Pewds - YouTube So unlike Bitch Lasagna, Congratulations is not essentially just a diss track for T-Series. It's just Pewds' way of showing his grievances with T-Series' cease and desist letter, and thanking his fans at the same time for all the support. It's a typical PewDiePie move. The music video has been watched over 10 million times in just 13 hours, and it's currently trending on the platform.
  13. The Desi community in the UK right now are going to feel even more at home. Cab giant Ola has now launched autos in England! Ola has launched an entire fleet of Bajaj and Piaggio autorickshaws in the Liverpool area with the aim of overtaking Uber. © Twitter People were pleasantly surprised to be surrounded by colourful 'tuk-tuks' and were offered free rides as well. Also, these auto rides will ensure that a large amount of the fare will go to the driver itself. From India to the streets of Liverpool.

However, funnily enough, this is not the first time we are looking at pictures of an auto in the streets of Europe because in 'Aap Ka Suroor', Himesh Reshammiya already showed us how autos work in Germany, remember? © Action Concept Film Well, hope our Desi crew in Britain is having fun now.
  14. Let's begin with two things: 1. As we all know, fake news is one of the best ways to grab people's attention. 2. Also, Conor McGregor just announced his retirement for a second time, hours after talking of his next fight in July. Now, how are these two sentences related, you ask? Rumour has it that this announcement is another publicity stunt from the extravagant UFC fighter, who is notorious for his outside-of-the-ring statements. Hey guys quick announcement, I've decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas! — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 26, 2019 The Irishman announced, on social media, about his retirement from mixed martial arts. He called this news a 'quick announcement'. But this news does not seem that easy to digest as the 30-year-old, hours before this announcement, discussed on “The Tonight's Show with Jimmy Fallon” details about his future bouts. “We're in talks for July. There's a lot of politics going on, it's a mad game, the fight game,” he said. “To my fans, I am in shape and I am ready. There are many opponents, in reality I can pick who I please.” © AP Adding to which he said, “I don't necessarily need to fight. I am set for life, my family is set for life. We are good, but I am eager to fight. We will see what happens, but I am just staying ready.” Having been away from the octagon since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomdeov, the UFC lightweight champion, Mcgregor was serving a six-month ban for the post-match brawl that ensued with the Russian and his contingent. Soon after his tweet, sports enthusiasts around the world sarcastically reacted to his announcement calling it fake and a bait to grab attention. We haven't yet forgotten when, in April 2016, Mcgregor had pulled off a similar stunt after not being awarded a rematch with Nate Diaz. And now, quitting at a time when he is perfectly in shape, seems a bit off to all UFC fans around the world.

  15. On days when Sushant Singh Rajput is not busy impressing us with his performance or working for the welfare of the society, the actor is busy entertaining his millions of followers with his goofy and funny antics on social media. It won't be wrong to say that his Instagram account is a goldmine of inspiration, entertainment, humour, and all things amazing and this video is one of the gemstones we found. © Instagram Sushant is currently working on his upcoming film 'Chhichhore' and after the pack up, he decided to recreate 'Koi Mil Gaya'.

  16. It was a night full of drama at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur during the fourth game of the Indian Premier League in its twelfth season. While we got to see some brilliant shots being played and powerful innings being carried out by Chris Gayle and Jos Buttler, there was that one instance that sucked all the charm right out of the game. After the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) were able to put forward a more than respectable score of 184-run total in 20 overs behind Chris 'Universe Boss' Gayle's thunderous 79-run innings, it was up to Ajinkya Rahane's Rajasthan Royals (RR) to make the run-chase happen successfully, otherwise this will be Punjab's first victory in Rajasthan ever, in the history of the league. Kinni tareefan kare tuhaddi, Gayle paaji ð Describe @henrygayle's innings with one emoji!#SaddaPunjab #KXIP #RRvKXIP #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/CorltLx6AV — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) March 25, 2019 From the get-go, Rahane and Co. looked determined to keep things the way they were with no intention of letting Punjab get a one up early in the tournament. With the skipper returning to the dressing room after scoring just 27 runs, it was the second opener and English cricketer Jos Buttler who took the command and thrashed anyone and everyone who came his way, while scoring 69 in just 43 deliveries which included 10 4s and two 6s. And just like that, it's 5ï¸â£0ï¸â£ off 29 balls for @josbuttler You 'Jos' can't take your eyes off this man! ð#HallaBol #RRvKXIP #RR pic.twitter.com/hlgEwye8EE — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) March 25, 2019 With loss in sight for KXIP, they looked desperate to get Buttler's wicket. They tried spinners, pacers and bowled a couple of googlies as well but the Englishman remained unfazed. This is when R. Ashwin decided to do the unthinkable. In the 13th over, when Buttler was standing in the non-striker's end and was out of the crease (which all runners tend to do in order to complete the run more quickly), Ashwin went half-way into his bowling routine, stopped in the middle, turned around and knocked the bails right off the wickets right next to him. Spirit of cricket thrown out of cricket, Some1 just tell @ashwinravi99 is not playing in streets but an International game @ICC must abolish Mankad rule. If u want to get @josbuttler Out then get him "OUT". Don't use silly ways to get rid of Best player @awais_hameed #Ashwin pic.twitter.com/kgdubqBhMG — Naveed Qaiser Rana (@journalist4871) March 25, 2019 This move is infamously known as 'mankading' based on the name of one of the most controversial bowlers in the history of Indian cricket, Vinoo Mankad, who started out this unholy, unsportsmanlike practice all the way back in 1947 when he dismissed Aussie batter Bill Brown twice (once in a practice session and then again in a Test match). Anyhow, Ashwin's appeal after 'mankading' Buttler led the umpire to take the decision upstairs where the third umpire gave a decision in favour of the bowler and asked Buttler to leave the pitch. Make no mistake, 'mankading' is not an illegal move. A bowler is well within his rights to get the non-striker run-out anytime he is found to be outside of the crease. Law 41.16 a batsmen at non strikers end should not leave his ground UNTIL the bowler has released the ball! SO OUT! Lesson.. batsmen watch the bowlers release the ball! #easy #SelectDugout — Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) March 25, 2019 “No real argument on that and it was pretty instinctive. I didn't even load and he just left the crease. We ended on the right side of the coin, but I definitely think that those are game-changing moments and batsmen need to be wary of it,” Ashwin told Harsha Bhogle in the award distribution ceremony after the game. Even though the official books of cricketing rules don't deem 'mankading' as illegal, it has been frowned upon ever since Mankad carried out this practice for the very first time. It makes the bowling side look weak, desperate and it most certainly does not help them look like the gentlemen of the game. Ravichandran Ashwin has been out of action for the Indian cricket team for quite some time now and the fact that he can resort to something this grave, especially in the golden era of Indian cricket in which stars like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah are making their country proud, says a thousand words about his spirit as a sportsman. Clearly, the millions of fans of the true nature of cricket did not like the taste of Ashwin's desperate attempt to win the game, left in their mouth: Harsha you are missing the point completely & I'm disappointed in you as you always push the spirit of the game - now you condone this behaviour ? Ashwin's actions were simply disgraceful, and I hope the BCCI doesn't condone this sort of behaviour in the #IPL ! #spiritofthegame https://t.co/BsIKDBN51X — Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) March 25, 2019 I would say to all India ex players/Pundits who are supportive of what R Ashwin did ...

  17. Have you ever imagined surviving on the internet without Google? Don't bother if you haven't, because it's not as easy as it sounds. I mean, just think about it for a minute. If you're using a Google-owned Android phone, then you're already out because that phone is probably one of the first things you check in the morning after you've woken up. Even a lot of iOS apps rely on Google's services. You take an Uber to work, you're using Google Maps data. You open Safari browser, you're again using Google's Search engine by default. In fact, even a lot of news websites, which you trust, run Google-owned ad services. © Pexels Look, I can pull out a lot of examples like this, but the point that I am trying to make here is that Google is everywhere. It's really difficult to avoid Google, and there's no easy way around it. That, however, isn't stopping a Reddit community from trying. A dedicated community which goes by 'r/deGoogle' on Reddit is filled with thousands of users trying to live a life without Google. The goal, apparently, is to try and avoid handing any personal information over to Google and its services. The subreddit, at its core, looks like a dumping ground for various links to apps and services which you can use without relying on Google. Think of the subreddit like a collection of 'tips and tricks' for surviving on the internet without Google. © Reddit - deGoogle Is it really possible to cut out Google from your life? The answer, unfortunately, is no. Yes, it's almost impossible to avoid Google without having a major effect on the way you use the internet. Between all of its products, Google has billions of users. Besides the Google search engine and other services like YouTube, G-Suite, etc., you're looking at Google's presence in other domains like artificial intelligence, fibre internet, and more. Heck, the company just announced its entry into the world of gaming with Stadia. Even if you manage to keep yourself away from these Google services, you're still relying on Google while using apps and services like Snapchat, Spotify, Pokemon Go. Why? Well, these services are all based on Google's Cloud platform. So as a netizen, you're relying heavily on Google in some way or the other. © BCCL Yes, it sounds a little terrifying considering how much Google knows about you and your day-to-day activities. Of course, there are ways to avoid Google and it's services up to an extent. However, if you choose to go that route, then you may have to make some serious alterations on the way you use the internet. In case you're interested, you can check out some ways with which you can cut out Google from your life here.
  18. Vicky Kaushal is making headlines every day and for good reason. Delivering great movies one after the other, he's no more the boy next door. He has arrived. From supporting roles to carrying his own films flawlessly, the actor has really evolved. © Instagram/amandeepkaur But aside from his stellar acting, and great performances the actor also has a relatable sense of style. It's the kind of style that is neither too experimental and nor too loud and yet it makes a statement and an impressive one at that. Unlike actors like Ranveer Singh and Aparshakti Khurana who rely on the element of shock value to express their sense of personality pulling off impossible things with stride, Vicky Kaushal stays conventional and hits the right notes of style pairing the best of everything together. © Instagram/amandeepkaur Case in point: for the Filmfare awards, Vicky Kaushal wore the classic bow tie with a tuxedo. The thing about something so classic and conventional is that anyone can easily go wrong with them. But not Vicky Kaushal. He added a classic pair of brogues by House Of Sunil Mehra with a surface that has the perfect balance of shine and ruggedness on it. The shoes were the star of this outfit. They lifted the outfit and took it to another level. Take a look: © Instagram/amandeepkaur Hands up if you too want to get shoes like Vicky Kaushal because we do.
  19. Seems like the iconic character of Tyrion Lannister who drinks and knows things way too well has more than just one 'desi' doppelganger. After Imtiaz Ali and his team spotted Peter Dinklage's doppelganger in Kashmir, another man in Pakistan is now reaping the benefit of sharing the facial features of the GOT star. His name is Rozi Khan and he is a waiter who is now busy starring in selfies. © AFP Ironically, Rozi Khan had never heard of Peter or GOT before people made him aware of his new-found celebrity status. He was leading the common, simple life, serving tables when everyone now wanted to click pictures with him and make him an overnight social media star in Pakistan. In an interview with AFP, Rozi said, “I don't mind. A lot of my pictures have been taken, that's why I have become very famous everywhere. Wherever I go, someone says to me: 'Sir, who is this man with you on Facebook', I say that he is my friend. 'He looks like you'. I tell them he is my brother. It's not a bad thing”. © AFP Needless to say, his presence has also boosted the business of the restaurant he works at, benefitting his employers equally. With a doppelganger in both sides of the border, looks like someone needs to get Peter down here! Until then, we'll soon be able to witness his action on 'Game Of Thrones' because the countdown to finale has already begun.
  20. The Indian contingent for the 2019 Special Olympics, which is currently taking place in Abu Dhabi, is atop the medal tally with 30 gold, 33 silver and 32 bronze medals in events ranging from roller skating, powerlifting to table tennis. Such is the versatility of Team India. But, who cares, right? The fact that 19-year-old powerlifter Manali Manoj Shelke failed thrice, redetermined her resolve, and finally succeeded in crossing her hurdles with just a little bit of persuasion by her coach, will mean absolutely nothing to us in not more than a couple of days when the Indian Premier League (IPL) begins. Special Olympics athlete Manali Manoj Shelke shows us what a true athlete is pic.twitter.com/H2XkzIHnux — Athlete Swag (@AthleteSwag) March 15, 2019 All the effort put in by the young prodigy will be clouded by the fireworks of cricket, the sport that has achieved 'celebrity status' in a nation which takes immense pride in the diversity it possesses. No hate towards the “gentleman's game” though. The game has led to providing a living (a very luxurious one at that) for a lot of athletes, giving deals worth lakhs and crores of rupees to these players, some of whom have not even played a single game at a noteworthy level. But that's okay, right? In some days, names of Special Olympians like Supreet Singh, Rishabh Jain and Priya Prakash Gaba who, despite their disabilities, brought home the greatest laurels that they could, will be nothing more than a Google search. Hey, if they are lucky enough, maybe their names will appear in one of the questions in the next season of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. Who knows? Who remembers Ranvir Singh Saini, the athlete diagnosed with autism at the age of two, who became the first Indian to win the gold in a golfing event? Who can recollect the memories of the powerhouse of a sportsperson in Phoolan Devi, who bagged yet another gold medal in powerlifting (bench press) not too long ago at the 2015 Special Olympics 2015 in Los Angeles, USA? Four days of mild to no news coverage and maybe a couple of retweets about how they have made their country proud, that's all they are worth. That's exactly what they had signed up for when they stopped feeling sorry for themselves and took up sports in this country. But, they are no cricketers so, obviously, they have no legacy. They are not worthy of well-documented stories to tell the future generations, but who cares?
  21. Be it talent in terms of acting, charisma, popularity, or raw magnetism, if there are two stars can give each other solid competition in the current scenario, they have got to be Vicky Kaushal and Ranveer Singh. While 2018 has most certainly been Vicky's year, Ranveer is smashing everything on his way with movies like 'Gully Boy'. However, one more area where they are giving each other solid competition is their style game. In a recent award ceremony, Vicky and Ranveer shared the stage, shook a leg, and had a 'suit off' of sorts.

The reason might lay in the atypicality of the love story that 'Photograph' stands for. The film traces the journey of two strangers - Mumbai-based street photographer Rafiq (Nawazuddin) and accountancy student Miloni (Sanya) - and how they come together to smoothen out the ruffled feathers in each other's lives, forming a special bond along the way.

A post shared by Sanya Malhotrað¥ (@sanyamalhotra_) on Jan 25, 2019 at 9:06am PST Now, even though Twitter has shown close to no interest in the film whatsoever, some earnest movie-goers have given this movie a chance, and from what we have gathered from the Twitter reviews so far, it seems that while the audience has loved the director's vision, the execution hasn't been followed through. Moreover, people aren't convinced about the leading pair's chemistry and seem disappointed with the half-baked character sketches that surface in the film. View this post on Instagram Super Excited to inform you all that after being officially selected at the prestigious #SundanceFilmFestival2019 my film #photograph will also be screened at the #berlinale2019 Thank You @riteshbatra for doing this wonder & @sanyamalhotra_ for being a wonderful part of this. A post shared by Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@nawazuddin._siddiqui) on Jan 17, 2019 at 11:13pm PST While we are all for unusual love stories and happy endings, there is something to be said about poor delivery and going by the audience's words, 'Photograph' doesn't seem to be making the cut this time. Here is what Twitter is saying about the film: #Photograph is an amazing experience. I felt it, can't really explain. It lingers when it's done. @riteshbatra certainly knows to hit the right cord. @Nawazuddin_S is phenomenal as always. But I could actually feel @sanyamalhotra07's character, very relatable. #PhotographReview. — Anwesh Panda (@anwesh_panda) March 15, 2019 Photograph (U/A) Runtime - 110 Minutes Rating - ð ð ð ð 1/2 Review - A very well crafted film. Acting - Nawaz is fantastic What's good - Screenplay,Direction What's bad - No chemistry between the leads — Cinema200 (@cinema200) March 15, 2019 Ritesh Batra has a knack for making his actors forget about the camera. Nothing ever seems filmed. Or designed. My #Photograph Review: A delicate little gem https://t.co/v0SK78gI6n pic.twitter.com/70gFbRf4yO — Sukanya Verma (@SukanyaVerma) March 15, 2019 Watched #Photograph, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra. Longing, nostalgia and a rather unique take on love, this film speaks most in its silences. But it's not everyone's cup of tea. Here's my review.https://t.co/nktV200UjD pic.twitter.com/ddZMos3Hbm — Lakshana Palat (@lakshanapalat) March 15, 2019 Photograph Review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra starrer is slow paced, ambiguous and melancholic — Bizma Gul (@BismaaGul) March 14, 2019
  24. The much-awaited first teaser of the upcoming period drama 'Kalank' is finally out amidst much hype. The movie marks Dharma Production venturing into the Sanjay Leela Bhansali genre with a period drama that is set in the pre-independence era. The onus lies on the love story between Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, but the teaser shows a heart broken Alia marrying Aditya Roy Kapur instead. © Dharma Productions Besides the three leads, the movie brings together Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Diixit after an insane hiatus. Also Sonakshi Sinha will be seen in a pivotal role. Sure, the teaser ensures us that this will be a stunning visual delight but however, it's not something you feel like you haven't already watched before. The movie is directed by Abhishek Varman and is set to release on 17th April.
  25. Diljit Dosanjh is probably the only other fashionista in the country who can give Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar a solid run for their money when it comes to maximalism. His raw, rustic appeal is a perfect contrast against the hypebeast appeal his clothes exude. His wardrobe can legit be used as a fashion masterclass when it comes to brand-spotting, and some of them are super expensive (duh). Here are 5 pieces that we love, and probably can never afford. 1. The Dapper Dan Necklace From Gucci © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh This one, without a doubt, is Diljit's favourite accessory. He has worn it with almost every statement outfit of his and rocked it every single time. It costs a whopping Rs 2.4 Lakhs. 2. The Oversized Purple Teddy Bear Sweater From Amiri © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh The super playful oversized purple sweater from Amiri with a teddy bear patch costs 1190 Dollars, which when converted to INR, is around Rs 83,500. In its defence, it's really cute. 3. The 'Blame It On My Youth' Leather Jacket By Misbhv © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh Who won't want to own this classic piece with the super funky slogan? They can, of course, if they can spare Rs. 82.500. 4. Balenciaga Oversized Padded Logo-Print Cotton-Poplin Shirt © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh This cotton-poplin shirt with extra-big sleeves from Balenciaga costs INR 1,22,520. 5. Jeans From Gosha Rubchinskiy © Viral Bhayani It's 'not much', but will you be willing to pay INR 36,270 for a pair of jeans? Probably, if you're Diljit! Some day, Paaji, some day.
