  1. For every single person, TikTok has been a blessing during the lockdown. Everyone, from celebrities to regular people bored at home, has tried their hand at the TikTok dances and just creating hilarious content when they have nothing else to do. One famous person who has been extremely consistent on the app has been David Warner who has constantly made headlines with his TikToks. From duets with other celebs to just dancing with his adorable kids, it's safe to assume that the Australian cricketer is having the best time under lockdown. One of his latest videos has his two cute lil daughters dressed up in a ghaghras and three of them dancing to the song Bala from Housefull 4.

  2. We all know that star kids get as much attention as any other B-town celebrity. Even if they are not a part of the movie industry just yet, the paparazzi always ensure they are snapped and this gives us an insight into what their lives are like. Having said that, with a majority of star kids out there, Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan's son, has never failed to amaze us. He has been in the spotlight for a while now and even though he hasn't marked his debut yet, we are constantly updated about his whereabouts through social media. What makes his feed even catchier, is the fact that most of the pictures that he posts remind us of Shah Rukh Khan. Be it his looks or his way of dressing, Aryan clearly knows how to ace all sorts of silhouettes and give fierce competition to his father with his fashion game. Here's a compiled list of all the times when Aryan Khan aced the fashion arena with his sartorial eccentricities. View this post on Instagram Happy Mothers day #gaurikhan A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on May 12, 2019 at 12:07am PDT 1. Remember the time when we spotted all celebrities at Akash Ambani's engagement party? Well, our favourite star kid wasn't far behind in the fashion league. This well-fitted blue suit with a black-tie, shows that he is truly King Khan's son as he knows how to elevate his style statement, no matter where he goes. View this post on Instagram #suhanakhan #shahrukhkhan #aryankhan #gaurikhan #abramkhan #ananyapanday #saraalikhan #janvikapoor #iamsrk #naturephotography#naturalhair A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on May 24, 2019 at 9:41am PDT The saying 'like father, like son', is seen quite explicitly in this picture. This one, for example, is encapsulated quite well with a leather bomber jacket topped with denim pants and a basic T-shirt. On the other hand, SRK's way of wearing the jacket with cargo pants is relatable too. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Mar 17, 2019 at 8:19pm PDT We cannot take our eyes off that jawline. Add to that, oversized orange jacket for winter days, sums up this picture in the most pleasing manner. While we have seen SRK wearing such silhouettes, this one from Aryan's closet, shows where he gets his inspiration from. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Jul 1, 2018 at 8:37am PDT Balenciaga sock sneakers are hands down the most versatile pair of sneakers we have seen and it looks like the trend of wearing them runs in the Khan family. A look at this picture and you would see how Aryan, AbRam and SRK are all wearing the same sock sneakers in different colours. This is beyond words for us! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Jan 28, 2018 at 3:04am PST Aryan looks like SRK's spitting image in this one. Also, the way he is sporting the smart casual outfit is truly raising the temperature. A white shirt with undone buttons, layered with a black blazer is an instant way to stand out. If this is not tempting enough, we don't know what is! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aryan Khan (@__aryan____) on Mar 24, 2020 at 7:30am PDT Aryan clearly doesn't need any more fashion lessons as he has already struck a chord with us with his choices. This one, where he has layered a grey denim jacket over an oversized Givenchy red hoodie and camouflage pants is athleisure fashion at its best. Hats off! View the full article
  3. Arjun Kapoor may still wear his favourite relaxed hoodies, but when it comes to promoting his films, all his ensembles are spiced up and they instantly strike a chord with us. For someone, who is mostly known for his low-key classics, this man has turned over a new leaf and has evolved with his fashion game. If you also take a look at the sneakers he sports, even they have a striking element to them. Then, be it his camo inspired sneakers, dirty ones or security tag shoes, he usually turns up dressing sharply in his edgy shoes. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the recent instance, Arjun and Parineeti Chopra have started promoting their upcoming movie Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. The two have been the quintessential couple on-screen ever since their first release, Ishaqzaade. In terms of fashion, Arjun and Parineeti both dialled up their style quotient but a look at Arjun's desert boots, and you would see that they surpassed Parineeti's basic white sneakers. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani Arjun was at the top of his style game for this recent event as he chose the right footwear for the summer months. While it is particularly tricky to pair them, these boots are easy and quite comfortable. Furthermore, with suede texture, lace-up detailing and muted colour palette, these features add character to the boots and the ensemble. Another versatile feature about these boots is that they ensure you don't look overdressed ever. What we also like here is the way Arjun has struck a balance in his outfit. Particularly, with regard to his casual brown jacket, it is an easy-to-deck-up for a chilled afternoon or weekend brunch hours as well. © Viral Bhayani Arjun opted for a rather cool outfit to go with these boots, which is a basic grey t-shirt paired with classic blue jeans. This simply looks outstanding as the shoes dictate this look since it's anchored neutral monotones. Plus, the brown sunglasses took the look a notch higher. © Viral Bhayani Sartorially speaking, even Parineeti's grey co-ord set are well-styled. The white sneakers are not far behind but when it comes to uniqueness factor, Arjun's boots sure win more brownie points. © Viral Bhayani As a trend, desert boots were adopted during World War II and later, as time passed, many brands emerged and started embracing this trend. It is made with multiple layers and is one of the most comfortable, stylish and casual choices that you can make for your feet. The texture, adds a highly polished feel to any look and that's exactly the case with Arjun's outfit. Way to go Arjun, we cannot wait to see more of your promotion looks for the upcoming movie. Keep going! View the full article
  4. The heartthrob of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan has donned many avatars in his movies over the years, however, the one role noticeably missing from his repertoire is that of a cop. At a recent event, Umang: A Mumbai Police Welfare Fund's Initiative, Hrithik expressed his desire to someday, essay the role of a police officer. Acknowledging the efforts of the Mumbai Police, the War star said, "Mumbai is one of the best cities to live in and it is because of the Mumbai police force. I couldn't make it to Umang 2019 last year but this year I made sure that I come here. I am feeling wonderful performing at a stage for all the policemen who work for us day and night and keep us safe." View this post on InstagramThis oneâs all about the iphone. #ShotonIPhonePro . Good morning !A post shared by (@hrithikroshan) He also said that the role of a cop is one that he has been wanted to play for a long time. "In my entire life, I have essayed all kinds of roles. However, I haven't got a chance to play the character of a policeman. I would urge the filmmakers to write a police officer's role for me because that will be the most challenging role of my life. I am sure I will make it the best role of my life," he added. Don't know about you guys, but we think Hrithik, as a badass cop, beating the crap out of goons and criminals will be a sight to behold. Well, it this happens, looks like our beloved Singham and Simbaa will have some tough competition. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  5. Ranbir Kapoor is currently busy shooting the much-awaited film of 2020, Brahmastra. Being spotted outside is a rarity since he has a rather busy shooting schedule. But, it's the holiday season, and he knows when to take a break. For a Christmas party, he was spotted along with Alia Bhatt in what looked like mismatched shoes. He was, in fact, wearing Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1. While the shoes look like two different silhouettes from a distance, if you look closely, they're in fact the same silhouette designed to look that way. The shoes have a leather texture and the inner sole is complemented with the cactus jack label. The intricate details of this pair are complemented with the different laces that make it more apparent. Take a look here: © Instagram/ Manav Manglani © Nike If you look at the picture closely, you'll notice that Alia Bhatt wore a pair of neon heels, but Ranbir Kapoor's sneakers definitely give that pair a tough competition. This is not the first time that Ranbir Kapoor has worn these sneakers. Recently, he was seen at the airport in the same pair. We wonder if this silhouette has become a favourite of Ranbir Kapoor.

  6. A few weeks ago when I reviewed Xiaomi's Redmi Note 8, I said it was the best phone to buy under Rs 10,000 in India and nothing comes close. Well, the Redmi Note 8 is still a kickass phone, but it's no longer the only phone we recommend in this price range. Yes, Realme has updated the Realme 5 with new optics and called it Realme 5s. But it's not exactly a bad thing because the Realme 5 itself was a really good phone and it only needed the optics to go head-to-head with Xiaomi's new budget king. So, is the Realme 5s a good phone to buy? Well, let's find out. 1. Design & Build Quality © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Realme has been making some really good looking phones and the new Realme 5s is no exception. I absolutely loved the design of the Realme 5 when it came out, so I am glad that they decided to stick to the same design. The Realme 5s looks exactly the same. I mean, if it wasn't for the new 48MP moniker on the camera sensor or the new Crystal Red colour, you won't be able to tell the difference between the two. Since we're looking at the same design, we must point out that it's a little unwieldy. I mean, it's a tall phone with a massive display on the front and a huge battery inside. So it's not a easy phone to hold and use, at least not with one hand. But if that's not an issue, then you'll love it. Realme has done a great job when it comes to the build quality. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP The Realme 5s has the classic Realme diamond pattern at the back. There's also a fingerprint scanner at the back, which is just as fast and reliable as any other physical scanner. It can be a little hard to reach if you have small hands. And since Realme hasn't changed anything else apart from the camera, we're looking at the same micro USB port at the bottom. It's a bummer, considering the fact that other competing phones are now offering a USB Type C port. 2. Display The Realme 5s sports a 6.5-inch LCD display with a waterdrop notch. It's a tall display, but it's only an HD+ panel, which means, it's not going to be as sharp as the displays on some other phones in the same price range. Also, the LCD isn't as bright and colourful as you'd expect, so I'd say the display is one of the weak points of the phone. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad display by any means. But we wish it was at least an FHD+ panel. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Apart from that though, I don't have any other complaints with the display. The bezels are slim, viewing angles are good and even the sunlight visibility is pretty good. It's a perfectly serviceable display for a phone that costs under Rs. 10,000. 3. Performance The Realme 5s has the same specifications as the Realme 5, which means it shares the same specs as the Redmi Note 8 too. It packs a Snapdragon 665 SoC chipset and 4GB RAM, which is a good combo for keeping things quite smooth on a budget phone. During my testing, the phone managed to push through all the day-to-day tasks such as web browsing, social media apps and more. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP However, gaming is not exactly a strong suit of Snapdragon 665 SoC, so you may notice lags and jitters occasionally while playing games like PUBG Mobile and Asphalt 9. But that's the case with most budget phones, so you might want to consider spending a little more if you want a phone to play games. I must point out that Realme's ColorOS based on Android Pie is pretty good. It has gotten a lot better over time and is now one of my favorite Android skins. Yes, it still comes with a ton of bloatware, but you can remove most of them. I just like how smooth the UI is. Software makes a whole lot of difference and I am happy to report that you won't have any issues with the Realme 5s when it comes smooth day-to-day performance. 4. Camera © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Yes, the cameras! Like I said, the only reason why this phone exists is the camera. The Realme 5s sports a quad-camera setup which includes a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The rest of the sensors are the same as what we saw on the Realme 5, so essentially the 48MP is the highlight here. So, how's the camera performance? Well, the 48MP sensor offers a lot of details in daylight photos with ample light. There's a ton of details on the images captured in the 48MP mode and the brightness is also on point. There's also a dedicated night mode on the Realme 5s and it can take some really good shots. Even the images captured using the other modes are really good, so I'd say this is a really versatile camera. Here are some samples - 5. Battery Life The Realme 5s packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery, which is what makes this phone a little bulky. If you're looking for a phone with good battery life, then look no further. The Realme 5s can last you a very long time on a single charge, even if you're a heavy hitter. I usually go hard on phones while testing them and hence they give up very easily. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP But with Realme 5s, I was ending my days with up to 40-percent charge, even on the day when I am using it extensively for watching media, taking pictures, etc. It's that good. But it only comes with a 10W charger, which means it'll take a lot of time to get fully charged. You'll be looking at around 2 hours to get this phone from 0 to 100-percent. 6. The Final Say So, is the Realme 5s worth the asking price of Rs. 9,999? Well, yes. At that price, you're getting a really good phone with a great internals, a massive 5,000 mAh battery and a really versatile camera setup. These are the only thing that matters to budget phone buyers and I think Realme has done a good job. Yes, I would've loved to see an FHD+ panel and USB Type C port, but it looks like, we can't have it all. So, I'll wrap up my review by saying that Redmi Note 8 is not the only phone that's worth checking out under Rs. 10,000. The Realme 5s is also here now and it has a lot going for it. Be sure to check out our detailed comparison between the Redmi Note 8 and the Realme 5s to learn more about them. View the full article
  7. Not just in the Indian cricket team, Hardik Pandya is definitely someone with an unconventional sense of style that stands out rather easily, even among B-Town celebs. Not just on the cricket field but outside of it too, Hardik is one of the best-dressed sportsmen in the country. Amongst celebrities who love to dip their toes in high fashion like Diljit Dosanjh and Badshah, Hardik is not too far behind. From splurging on blingy Versace sneakers) to a Louis Vuitton shirt that costs as much as the rent of a sea-facing apartment in Mumbai, Hardik has pulled it all off with some aplomb. All said and done, accessorising is clearly Hardik Pandya's MVP in styling his outfits. Recently for Katy Perry's welcome party at Karan Johar's place, he was spotted in an all-black outfit, with a neon blue jacket tied around his waist. To complete the look, he had chosen a blingy silver chain with a pair of white high-top Louis Vuitton sneakers with a chunky gold chain from their SS19 collection. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani It is a regular pair of white high-top sneakers with Louis Vuitton trinkets attached left, right and center of the silhouette. The gold chunky chain on his sneakers takes his outfit to another level. We wonder if Katy Perry was taken aback with the kind of bling that Hardik Pandya was flashing through his chunky accessories.

  10. The young guns of the current Ajax squad takes us back to the good old days of the 1990s when they were counted as one of the most dangerous clubs in the whole of Europe and by defeating big dogs like Real Madrid and Juventus, Ajax has surely made their intentions for the European title extremely clear. This epic run of the Dutch team started from the very first match of this UEFA Champions League season, where they defeated AEK Athens FC 3-0. Continuing their winning form, they went on to play some mind-boggling matches to reach into the semi-finals this year. Starting with: Ajax Vs Bayern Munich © AP For a young team like Ajax, scoring a draw against the mighty Bayern Munich and that too in the Allianz Arena was in itself a very big achievement. Later in the group stage, when they met the Germans again, they went on to give the home crowd a courageous six-goal draw equipped with an added time equalising goal by Nicolas Tagliafico. Earlier, these draws were considered as 'flukes' for the newbies but with time, they showed everyone what their true character is built of. With players such as Frankie De Jong and Dusan Tadic in the team, they did make a statement that they belong amongst the best clubs in the world. Ajax Vs Real Madrid © Reuters Surpassing their group stage while being undefeated, Ajax proudly marched into the Round of 16 where they faced their first drums against Real Madrid, who handed them their first loss at home this season. As dangerous as a wounded lion, the young Dutch team stunned Santiago Bernabeu when they thrashed the defending champions 4-1 in the second leg, entering the quarter-finals with a comfortable 5-3 win on aggregate. The rain of goals by Hakim Ziyech, David Neres, Lasse Schone and Tadic, made Real's defence seem invisible. With their scintillating win over Real, the world started noticing the immense talent in the youngsters who can be a tough competition for the rest of the teams in the 2018-19 season of Champions League. Ajax Vs Juventus © AP When the draw for the quarter-finals came out, everyone thought that reaching the semi-finals would be a cake-walk for a team like Juventus, but Ajax, on the other hand, had different plans. They believed that they could win if they continue playing the type of football they have been playing off lately. Soon enough, they registered a draw in the first leg and a week later, they displayed another awe-spiring play to defeat the ferocious Juventus by 2-1, in their home itself. A well-placed goal by Donny Van De Beek and later the winning header by Matthijs De Ligt helped them cross the line. Now, entering the semi-finals after 22 long years, Ajax will have their hands on the deck when they take on either Tottenham Hotspurs or Manchester City next, to go a step ahead in their expedition to win the trophy for the first time in two decades.
  11. While India is on a roll from one scientific invention to the other, we have some kids from IIT Madras stealing the show! Elon Musk's Hyperloop Technology concept took an amazing spin when a team from IIT Madras competed in the Hyperloop Pod competition held every year and reached the finals, making them the only Asian team to do so! © YourStory If you're wondering what Hyperloop Technology actually is, it's an advanced technique that could revolutionise travel in the future. The concept was developed by Elon Musk back in 2013 through his space exploration firm called 'SpaceX' and since then, many companies and firms have been working on strengthening this technology. When the competition was held this year, a student team from IIT Madras made it to the finals after they developed a prototype Hyperloop pod called 'Avishkar Hyperloop' that would take 25 minutes to travel from Chennai to Bengaluru. © YouTube The competition had 1500 teams from all over the world who were trying to create the fastest 'pod' or a travelling vessel for the entire concept. Their aim was quite specific to build the pod though. All they had to keep in mind was that their pod attained the maximum speed and correspondingly it had comparative deceleration. Other than that, the participants were allowed to go as crazy creatively as they pleased. As 'Avishakar Hyperloop' are amongst the top 21 finalists, they'd be visiting the 'SpaceX' facility in California in July 2019 to test their prototype in a more relatable environment aka the hyperloop tunnel. © YourStory The IIT team from Madras has managed to develop an achievable prototype that will in all probability be a success as well. Suyash Singh, the founder and the head of the project claims that the pod will be able to achieve 400 to 450 KMPH during the finals and we're super ecstatic about it. The team consisting of graduates and PhD scholars has decided to use a linear induction motor, while the system will be backed by a high-power battery pack. As for the deceleration part, the team is planning on using pneumatic brakes. The pod also runs on four wheels in a single race track and at the final demonstration, the team will have to make the pod run within a one-mile-long vacuumed Hyperloop tunnel. But before the finals, the team will be allowed to test run it to make any final refinements a week prior to the actual event. "Laying the foundation for an indigenously developed hyperloop system for India will take a few years; only after that, will it be tested on the tracks. We believe the team has a long way to go and we expect the student team to be involved till the hyperloop competition is held." Ankit, the co-head of the project told a popular publication. © Facebook Team Avishkar Hyperloop Interestingly enough, all the other teams shortlisted for the finals are returning finalists, while India has made it in for the first time, without any other Asian country to compete with. The total budget for the Avishkar Hyperloop was Rs. 1 crore, which was mostly raised through crowdfunding, in-house funding and via tech companies. © Twitter Well, while we wonder if the world is really shrinking, we're really proud of team 'Avishkar Hyperloop' and we hope they do an astounding job in sunny California in July 2019.
  12. The Internet is a fierce battleground for users, clicks, attention, and audience. Competition surrounds your community from all angles and new threats constantly emerge. The Internet has leveled the playing field for local businesses, solopreneurs, and small organizations which means more people than ever are competing for users. Online communities are no different, and as companies realize the growing power of communities, you too may face more challenges. Online communities are growing faster than ever: IDC predicts worldwide online communities market to grow to $1.2 billion in 2019 According to research by Leader Networks, twenty-three percent of marketers who have online communities indicate that the size of their communities doubled in the past year. How is your community competing against your competitors? Is your community growing or stagnating relative to your competitors? In this blog post, we identify core concepts of competitive strategy that stretch from traditional theory to unique methods of winning for communities. Theory of Competition The broadly-accepted understanding of competition in the business world rests on the seminal work by Professor Michael Porter, when he mapped out the origins of competitive forces in his 1979 book “How Competitive Forces Shape Strategy.” Fundamentally, all strategies for Porter distill into two basic options: Build on what you already do, or do something no one else can do. You can compete by doing what everyone else is doing but be more efficient, such as offering higher quality content, a better user experience, or having a lower price of member acquisition. Or, you can expand the pie by forging a new position in the marketplace, such as staking out an untapped niche or developing a unique service. What’s your current competitive strategy: be better at what you’re already doing and your competitors, or to do something completely new? Emerging Theories A new strategy on competition is emerging that is just as potent as Porter’s competitive forces. It’s especially relevant for online communities in the digital age: reacting opportunistically to emerging possibilities. Discovery-driven planning is the field’s most recent thinking. It was introduced 20 years ago in works like Tim Luehrman’s “Strategy as a Portfolio of Real Options” that talked about flexibility as a strategy. The idea was also introduced in the more recent “Stop Making Plans: Start Making Decisions” by Michael Mankins and Richard Steel, which argued for continuous strategic planning cycles. Online communities are impacted by – and can seize advantage of – fluctuating factors: Technical advances and digital disruptions Disruptions in your industry The faster you react to market or technological change, the greater your advantage will become over time. What disruption recently impacted your industry or niche? How can you capitalize on the opportunity? Application to Online Communities Online communities are at an especially powerful intersection of customers, superusers, industry experts, and brand representatives.

  13. Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer 'Simmba' turned out to be a bigger hit than anyone could have anticipated. The typical Rohit Shetty drama-action movie had a good storyline, a stellar star cast and of course, great music with 'Aankh Maarey' being a chartbuster now. Now, of course, the two actors are great performers and dancers but if Sunny Leone chooses to dance on your number then well, there is no competition at all. Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber did their own rendition of 'Aankh Maarey' and well, let's just say, they killed any competition they could have had from Ranveer's dance moves. View this post on Instagram Thanks everyone 18million!! Woohoo! Time to dance and celebrate with @dirrty99 Love all 18 million of you! ð A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Jan 20, 2019 at 12:18am PST Sunny posted the video to thank her 18 million followers on Instagram and her husband joined the madness. The gorgeous actress is known for being one of the best dancers in Bollywood, and all her dance numbers so far have been a super hit. On the work front, Sunny is keeping very busy as she is prepping for the remake of the Punjabi super hit 'Jatt & Juliet' which will star Maniesh Paul opposite her.
  14. When it comes to being popular, no one can compete with the Pataudi/Khan family. As if Saif and Kareena weren't enough, along came the whirlwind called Taimur, and took the nation by storm. Post that, Sara's spunky appearance on Koffee along with her mature performance in Kedarnath got her a huge fan base already. One person in the family, who hasn't yet been under the pap lights, is Ibrahim. His latest Instagram post, however, tells us that is going to change soon. Take a look. © Instagram/iakpataudi Ibrahim is already famous as Saif's taller carbon copy. He looks exactly like a younger version of his dad - only with better clothes. © Instagram/iakpataudi While Sara looks like a young Amrita, Ibrahim has the royal charm that Saif is all about, and we can't help but think that he has all the potential to make a kickass Bollywood star - at least superficially, for now. © Instagram/iakpataudi We like his old school style game, that is reminiscent of the Pataudi brand of sophistication. We love the subtle shirt along with the bow he is sporting here. © Instagram/iakpataudi What we find really interesting is that despite looking exactly like Saif, he is way taller. Plus, he has the unusual exotic features that will easily set him apart in an industry already crowded with good-looking men. © Twitter © Twitter © Instagram/iakpataudi All the best, Ibrahim!
  15. There are two types of people--those who like to play video games and then, those who are gamers. The all-new Honor Play is exclusively made for the latter. Crazy Fast. Crazy Smart. That's how Honor has positioned its latest low-cost top-spec launch. And we have no complaints! Honor Play doesn't deviate from the winning formula used by the last few top-end Honor smartphones: a flagship processor, plenty of memory and storage, a big screen and battery life reaching well into the second day.

  16. Star kids grow up fast. Actually they grow up at the same pace as every kid, but since their lives are constantly monitored during their childhood, and they go off the radar during adolescence (as they should), it appears to us as if they suddenly grew up one fine day. Akshay Kumar's son, Aarav, had the same effect on everyone, when they started noticing him as someone who is growing up to be a fine young man. The shocker? He's only 15. © Instagram It has to be a challenge, being the teenage son of Bollywood's fittest man, but it shouldn't be a problem for Aarav because he clearly has inherited his dad's raw magnetism, his mother's charm, along with his grandfather's face structure. The bonus? Dimple Kapadia's light eyes (his are blue, though). Add to that his own fashion sense, and we get a promising new talent in Bollywood who would surely grow up to be as big a 'Khiladi' as his father. © Instagram Aarav was just spotted at the airport along with dad Akshay, who managed to steal all the limelight with his blue co-ords and salt-n-pepper awesomeness of a beard, Aarav dressed in a way that is perfect for a new-age 15-year-old (perhaps a little to mature for a 15 year old?), and looked like a responsible gentleman who still retains his innocence, as he walked beside his mother and baby sister. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The black and white Raglan T-shirt along with the black ripped jeans plus those basic black sneakers make for the perfect casual ensemble that is super cool, and playfully charming. The best thing about the outfit is, it's not 'extra' and is super relatable - something any 15-year-old will be willing to wear. © Viral Bhayani Another thing we couldn't help but notice is how tall the lad is, already! He is taller than his dad and he's still growing. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that we can't wait to see his Bollywood debut, if he chooses to pursue his dad's footsteps - because he clearly has everything he needs to (superficially so, at least, for now), in order to make it big. Good luck, Aarav!

  20. Ramzan is on, and Iftaar is definitely something everyone looks forward to. When it comes to Bollywood, it's a no-brainer that Iftaar parties constitute the flavour of the season. We recently came across one such 'mega-party', and it was an ethnic costume extravaganza, as we expected. It legit looked like a red carpet event, where the theme was Indian ethnic wear. Take a look at who wore what. 1. Anil Kapoor Mr Kapoor clearly doesn't believe in anything mainstream. He proved it yet again by going with a flap collared kurta with jeans. © Viral Bhayani 2. Suniel Shetty Suniel 'swagger' Shetty chose the classic black and white kurta patiala combo. © Viral Bhayani 3. Bobby Deol Bobby was spotted wearing an easy breezy sky blue kurta with white floral embroidery. © Viral Bhayani 4. Arbaaz Khan Arbaaz went the traditional Pathani-Patiala way in milk white. © Viral Bhayani 5. Saqib Saleem Saqib stole the limelight with a satin kurta and bandhgala in a rare shade of rust-moss. © Viral Bhayani 6. Karan Tacker Karan wore a navy blue silk kurta with side ruffles. © Viral Bhayani 7. Maniesh Paul Maniesh Paul chose to wear a long achkan in seafoam green with a white dhoti. © Viral Bhayani 8.

Riteish Deshmukh Riteish wore a pathani-achkan hybrid on charcoal black, a perfect choice with that moustache. © Viral Bhayani
  21. Yes, you heard it right! Fortnite comes out on Android devices this summer. Fortnite is free to play and has attracted millions of players thanks to its competitive Battle Royale mode. Fortnite first came to iOS in April after its initial release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac in the summer of 2017. This news was announced by Epic Games in a developer blog post stating that the highly-awaited Android version is slated for a release later this summer. © Epic Games One of the primary reasons why Fortnite has yet to come to the Android ecosystem is because the current mobile version of the game is still relatively unstable, and has a tendency to crash. Beyond that statement, Epic Games didn't release any further details about its development for the Android OS. Epic Games has listed out some of the features that the mobile version will have: 1. Voice Chat – users will be able to chat with their teammates as well as mute other players for an uninterrupted experience. 2. Battery Saver Mode – it increases performance by lowering the graphics quality and reduces power consumption so that the game can be played even on devices with midrange hardware. 3. Customizable HUD – Same as the one we see in the iOS version. 4. Reduced Installation Size – the overall update patches will be smaller and be downloaded in the background. © Epic Games The company's statement said, "We're also looking to make it really easy to mute yourself, other players, or open up all communications with a simple tap. There will be a button on the screen that lets you mute yourself, mute everyone in your party, or go back to open-microphone.” Epic Games hasn't announced a firm release date yet, their same blog post promises that “when we have more information to share, you'll hear it from us first.” © Epic Games The game is already reported to be making close to $2 million a day from its increasingly popular iOS mobile version. Fortnite Battle Royale, which is free to download and play, earns revenue through in-game purchases for cosmetics like skins and emotes, none of which grant players competitive advantages. The game has already surpassed the achievements of games like Candy Crush and Pokemon Go and it's obvious that addition of Android compatibility will further help strengthen its userbase as well as statistics. Keep in mind though, only the free multiplayer Battle Royale mode is available for mobile, and that's unlikely to change with the Android update.

  22. Not all superheroes wear capes, some can be spotted wearing an RCB uniform. For those wondering who we are refering to here? It's AB de Villiers, who scripted history with literally just one insane catch in yesterday's match against SunRisers Hyderabad. A quick recap: It was RCB vs SRH, and Alex Hales was proving to be a strong opponent by the 8th over. Right when RCB fans lost hope as Alex Hales smashed the ball towards the boundary, de Villiers leapt towards the ball, caught it a few steps ahead of the boundary and sent Hales back to the pavilion. © BCCI Bengaluru's Chinnaswamy Stadium echoed with cheers and roars for the South African superstar, whose unbelievable catch won't be forgotten anytime soon. In fact, Virat Kohli was so impressed with the catch that he wrote on Twitter, “Saw #SpiderMan live today.” Saw #SpiderMan Live today! ð®@abdevilliers17#RCBvsSRH #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/mUuGVKuTn4 — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 17, 2018 In fact, after the match, Kohli said, “That was Spiderman stuff. You don't do that as normal human beings. I thought it was going for a six but he pulled it off. I thought it's going for a six but he pulled it off. The jump and then the balance, he can do freakish things and I am used to it now. His shots still leave me in awe.” We feel the same Virat, de Villiers can really do freakish things. © Twitter While, AB de Villiers' catch was brilliant, if there's anything that can come even remotely close to that epic catch, it's these unimaginably hilarious memes. Desi Twitter had a field day churning out these hilarious memes and we dug out some of the golden memes, which just like his catch, won't be forgotten anytime soon.

  23. Remember when Mr Modi knocked the ultimate fashion sixer outside the park by wearing a suit the stripes of which actually were his own name embroidered in a loop? Here is a reminder. © Twitter Well we thought no one could top it, because of its sheer uniqueness. Probably we are right, too, but that doesn't mean no one can give him a tough competition. It just happened, and the attempt was made by none other than our very own Mr Shah Rukh Khan. SRK was just spotted wearing a jacket that had his own name - SRK - embroidered on it. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Isn't it dope? We are in love with this 'Got my name on, so?' vibe - delightfully nonchalant, yet charmingly narcissistic. We don't know anyone who can pull it off without looking like they are trying hard. © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we approve of the choice of white t-shirt and white sneakers. What other colour can possibly hold its own against the black playfulness going on? The plain white t-shirt is the perfect accompaniment to the casual baggy black jacket with its yellow detailing. © Viral Bhayani We like the vertical slogan detailing on the jacket sleeves, not to mention the 'S R K' in yellow on the left side, casually embroidered on as a part of the design. If someone didn't know who he is, they could totally overlook it as a part of the jacket itself. But who doesn't know SRK? Is it the part of an inside joke or a bet against someone? Knowing how humorous he is, it's totally possible. All we can say is that it's dope.
