  1. The Australia bushfire and the consequences that followed has not only affected the animals and humans living in the continent, but has alarmed the world of what awaits us in terms of climate change and the dire consequences of the same. View this post on Instagram Not all heroes wear capes, volunteer firemen to help with Australia wildfires. Salute to these heroes ! #bushfires #australiaisburning#australiaburns #climatechange#stopadani #climateactionnow#climatecatastrophe#climateemergency#AustralianBushfires #australiafires#bushfiresaustralia #bushfire#australiabushfire#australiabushfires #ScottMorrison A post shared by Kattee (@katteebags) on Jan 14, 2020 at 2:14am PST People and organsations around the world are trying to raise awareness and even donate towards the relief fund for the bushfires. One famous model hit the headlines when she offered to send nudes to her followers who were donating towards the Australia bushfires and managed to raise over a million dollars. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Metallica have donated over a million dollars as well but when Amazon founder Jeff Bezos posted on his social media, informing the world about his donation, he was roasted and trolled for it. View this post on Instagram Our hearts go out to all Australians as they cope with these devastating bushfires. Amazon is donating 1 million AU dollars in needed provisions and services. Find more about it and learn how customers can help as well. Link in bio. A post shared by Jeff Bezos (@jeffbezos) on Jan 11, 2020 at 10:17pm PST With his net worth being estimated close to $936 billion, he has offered to donate $690,000 towards the relief funds. People cannot fathom that he makes over $78.5 billion in a year personally and yet he decided to donate only a tiny amount (as per his wealth's estimate). If I had one million dollars and gave 75 cents to Australia, I would have given a bigger portion of my wealth than Jeff Bezos did https://t.co/gjBJ9aAlZL — mel (@MervinMastishin) January 13, 2020 Jeff Bezos gave $690,000 to wild fires in Australia, and has 116.7 billion dollars. To put this into perspective, my boyfriend has $1,500 net savings, and that would be the equivalent to him donating 0.88 cents. — Janet E. McSaxophone (@janeejpg) January 14, 2020 People are also mad that this amount is less than what he makes in 5 minutes, and we cannot even cook instant noodles in that time. Jeff Bezos makes $149,353 a minute. His company's board refused to pass a climate proposal. He just donated LESS THAN 5 MINUTES of work to Australia. This is simply not enough. Tax-the-rich! https://t.co/Sri3Xtkhos — Juliana Castro ð¤ð¼ (@juliacastrov) January 13, 2020 This is how much money #JeffBezos makes in 3 minutes. https://t.co/HL9dYadpVQ — Peter Daou (@peterdaou) January 12, 2020 Australia can have a little of Jeff Bezos' time. 3 minutes exactly. — ðJehoshaphat Bidenð (@CallMeGdubG) January 13, 2020 Over 2 months ago, he was trolled for donating around $98 million for homeless people across 23 states in the US because that was around 0.08% of his net worth. What is happening in Australia is the stark yet sad reality of how real the climate change is. Please contribute and do your bit in not just donating towards a relief fund but also doing whatever you can to contribute in saving our planet. View the full article
  2. The much awaited film Tanhaji hit the screens on January 10. Directed and co-written by Om Raut, Tanhaji is an adaptation of the lore of the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670 between the Maratha King Shivaji and the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. Besides doing extremely well at the box office, if there's one thing that people can't stop talking about, it's the multiple beard styles seen on-screen in the film. And here's the best part, you can actually get them from your local salon if you just take a picture reference. (Chances are, your barber has seen the film too which means you can get the exact look.) 1. Pornstache © Ajay Devgn FFilms Ajay Devgn's character as Tanhaji can be seen in a pornstache or otherwise known as a weighted moustache. Although the pornstar moustache has different variations, the most popular one can be defined as a thick, heavy moustache with slightly elongated ends and no accompanying facial hair. A similar version can also be seen on Ajay Devgn. 2. Short Boxed Beard © Ajay Devgn FFilms Uday Bhan played by Saif Ali Khan can be seen sporting short boxed beard. Now, here's the thing. A short boxed beard can be defined as a short moustache with a medium length beard as can be seen on Saif. The beard is fuller and covers relatively more surface on the face as can be seen. 3. Handlebar Moustache with Beard © Ajay Devgn FFilms Sharad Kelkar's character in Tanhaji can be seen in a visibly defined handlebar 'stache. But the look has been given a twist with an additional beard. If you think that a handlebar on its own is over the top, adding a beard to the picture can be a gamechanger. 4. The Weighted Beard © Ajay Devgn FFilms Aurangzeb played by Luke Kenny sported a weighted beard which is characterised with a relatively fuller beard with a fine moustache. This beard is the polar opposite of a weighted moustache where the emphasis is on the 'stache. View the full article
  3. British comedian Ricky Gervais on Friday expressed his views about the second season of his Netflix series, After Life. While responding to a tweet stating After Life has become the most-watched British-made comedy series, the Director said, "And season 2 is even better!". Directed by and starring Ricky Gervais, the black comedy-drama television series premiered on 8 March 2019, on Netflix. On 3 April 2019, Netflix renewed the series for its second season. A fan account on Twitter recently informed the viewers about After Life becoming the most-watched British-made comedy. Rickey Gervais re-tweeted the tweet with a comment that read "And season 2 is even better!" Last week, Gervais returned to host the Golden Globe awards, cracking scathing jokes about Hollywood’s elite that got both laughs and disapproving looks from the A-list audience. Gervais, known for his no-holds-barred style of comedy, joked about Hollywood’s lack of diversity, film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused by more than 80 women of sexual misconduct, and the suicide of financier and *** offender Jeffrey Epstein.
  4. If there's anything Salman Khan is known for apart from acting, Bigg Boss and controversy, it is the fact that he is also very generous. And every other day, the actor gives us a proof of the same with his random 'acts of kindness' and spoiling his friends by showering expensive gifts on them. And the newest addition to his list of celebrities at the receiving end of expensive gifts, is his Dabangg 3 co-star Kichcha Sudeep. © SKF films Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep, who played the villain Bali Singh in Dabangg 3, was recently surprised by Salman Khan who gifted him a Rs 1.55 crore BMW M5 post the success of the movie. Sudeep shared the pictures on social media thanking Salman for his generosity, "Good always happens when u do good. @beingsalmankhan sir made me believe this line further when this surprise landed at home along with him. BMW M5... a sweetest gesture." View this post on Instagram Good always happens when u do good. @beingsalmankhan sir made me believe this line further when this surprise landed at home along with him.

It was an honour to have worked with you and to have had you visit us." This is not the first time Sudeep recieved a gift from Salman. Earlier, he got Salman's favourite jacket and wrote on Instagram, "A line SK sir said when he put this jacket on to me. 'I never thought I would ever part with this jacket'. He got his fav pets pic painted on this jacket in its memory. I know what it means to part with something that's deeply connected. Thank you for this love sir."

  5. KL Rahul is not a stranger when it comes to flexing his muscles when it comes to style. And when we talk especially about street style, he has an entirely different ball game. We can go as far as to say that among the current cricketing pantheon, he made some of the best style statements throughout 2019. © Viral Bhayani From intentionally destroying a pair of sneakers worth Rs 50,000 to wearing a pair of sneakers that were legit inspired by Rubik's cube, the man has done really well when it comes to street style and athleisure. © MensXP All that being said, it seems that he is intent on amping up his style quotient by heaps.KL Rahul started the year with a major bang in one of the zaniest pairing of sneakers and a fanny pack. © Viral Bhayani First, let's get to his sneakers. The pair that KL Rahul is wearing is an exquisite piece, that's also quite zany. They are from the house of Dior and are called the B23 High-top Sneakers In Dior Oblique. They have a welded construction, which means they are tough and in spite of being a high fashion piece, they will last for you a lifetime. © Viral Bhayani As for the silhouette and the design of the sneakers, they are a thing to behold. The mix of calf-skin leather, cotton and canvas make it ideal for everyday usage, and also a party piece for any streetwear, or casual ensemble that you would be throwing together. The translucent rubber or plastic over parts of the sneaker does add a certain charm to the sneakers. The obliqued Dior logo all over the sneakers is a nifty touch that makes it even more appealing. © Dior The sneakers are listed on Dior's website for a whopping $1,100 or Rs 78,500. Mind you, that's before all the hefty import duties and taxes that you would be added on top of that 80K. © Dior Although the shoes are pricey, they don't hold a candle to the exquisiteness that KL Rahul's fanny pack exude. Now, we have seen a number of fanny packs and belt bags that are zany, and have the ability to turn heads. But this 'Pokemon' inspired belt bag is something else. © Viral Bhayani KL Rahul is carrying a piece from the Italian luxury fashion house, Fendi, called the Black Romano Leather Belt Bag. The plush leather bag comes with zippers and appliques in a golden finish, which give it a really classy appeal. © Fendi That appeal, however, is offset by the zany looking, bugs eyes bag that Fendi is known for. The 'eyes' again, are a golden applique. The eyes do look like an evil pokemon, don't they, almost like Gengar's eyes? © Pokemon Any which way, they do look cool. And the price for this zany piece? Well, on Fendi, they are listed for $1,490, or just over Rs 1,10,000. Add to that your usual tariffs and duties, and you are looking at a figure well north of Rs 1,50,000. © Viral Bhayani All that being said, KL Rahul does look dapper. The maroon cap and that understated outfit? A nice way to dress for the airport, actually. View the full article
  6. Besides Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, if there's another thing that still makes us laugh out loud, it is Sunny Singh's dialogue “Chal Jhoothi”. Even though he is low-key with his appearances, the time when he does make one, we can't help but notice all his looks. © Viral Bhayani Another thing that strikes the most about him is the fact that he is a low-key sneakerhead too. While we have seen many elite B-town stars making a statement in chunky pair of sneakers, Sunny accentuates his outfit wearing a snazzy pair that's also affordable. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Recently, he was spotted with his co-star Sonnalli Seygall, promoting his upcoming movie, Jai Mummy Di. He wore a black tracksuit that had the whole athleisure vibe to it. Even though the outfit had a street-style edge to it, did you see the way he took it a notch higher with his sneakers? We scoured and found that they are not just any pair but he legit wore 'alien' sneakers with bubble sole. If you are wondering what they are, take a look here! © Puma © Puma Sunny is wearing Puma's Cell Alien OG sneakers. The pair includes bubble heel that grants instant comfort to this pair. For running, this pair makes for the best choice. The mesh upper, rubber outsole, IMEVA midsole adds grip and traction. Furthermore, the pair has branding on the tongue. © Viral Bhayani The pair is designed in vibrant hues of blue, neon and white. The reason why its called alien sneakers is due to its edgy construction with a bubble sole that we have not seen on any other pair so far. It's a fantastic and an outlandish pair that easily passes off as one of the edgiest one of 2019. The maximum grip and durability make this one a must-have and why not? They are available just for Rs. 6,000 on Puma's website. It's a great investment and if you really wish to hoard a pair that's OTT, consider these sneakers. Well done, Sunny! View the full article
  7. Ultramarathons are considered to be one of the greatest tests of a person's physical and mental toughness. You find 100km of path ahead of you and the only support that you have in the quest of conquering the distance is your determination to be able to succeed. But for Kolkata's 45-year-old Anjali Saraogi, the journey to the finish line proved to be exponentially more difficult than possibly all the other contestants present at the 100k World Championship in Croatia in 2018. She started her career as a professional athlete at the age of 41, which is by the time the best of the sportspersons decide to say goodbye to their sport and retire. A conversation with her then 18-year-old daughter Mamta had encouraged her to participate in a half-marathon in the city. It was however with her own willingness that she challenged her body to achieve greater feats and eventually turned to ultramarathons. The 100k World Championship was scheduled to take place on September 8, 2018 and by the time Anjali had applied for the race and started training for it, it was already the last week of July. Preparing for a 100k run on the hilly roads of Croatia in just a month and a half seems to be a task next to impossible but she knew she was going to do it regardless. After training for one week, Anjali found out that she had dengue and had to be immediately hospitalised. No athlete, no professional can anticipate such a disease that it takes a massive toll on one's body. With the race just a month away and her body completely drained of energy, Anjali was in a completely defeated mental state of mind. “It was a very low point in my life. The doctors were unsure of my situation. I told my mother that I didn't know whether I will wake up the next day or not. I looked at my parents and my husband and my daughter's face and I just felt so bad. 'Why is this happening to us,' I used to ask myself,” she tells MensXP. Due to severe loss in blood platelets Anjali required two blood transfusions and the process wasn't easy. “With severe dengue, the patient not only requires the donor of the same blood group but also with an extremely high platelet count. Women aren't allowed to donate and men only in the age group of 18-50 can give their blood, so we were finding it extremely difficult to find a suitable donor,” says Anjali. This is when she asked one of her friends from Kolkata's running community who not only donated his blood but also asked around the entire community for suitable donors. View this post on Instagram Got the opportunity to get a pic with someone who has literally not only saved my life but given me a new life 'blood donation ' is such a noble act Anant Sanjeev Doogar.. @shunya_sarv ... always indebted to you Celebration of sweet 4 th Birthday of my favourite hydration and nutrition brand #fastandup You rock #fastandup #fastandupindia #fastandup_india #intelligentnutrition #fastandupfitsquad #fit #ï¬tfam #marathons #runnersofinstagram #runnergirl #ultrarunning #pushyourlimits #pushyourlimitseveryday #running #100k #hydration #strongnotskinny #crushyourgoals #workhard #runinspiration #happyrunning #healthy #keeprunning A post shared by Anjali Saraogi (@runjali1973) on Sep 21, 2019 at 12:34am PDT “Within a couple of days there was a line of donors ready to give their blood for me.” “The whole time, my family was my biggest support system. My mother used to tell me constantly that I will be alright and will one day I will run for my country. 'It might not happen now but one day you will run for India,' she used to tell me.” In that hospital bed, Anjali made a promise to herself: “If I come out of this situation all okay, I will do everything that I can to fulfill all my aspirations.” And that's exactly what she did. Miraculously, not only did the athlete got on her feet (although not 100% recovered) by the end of August, she was on her flight to Croatia as the only woman from the six-member Indian contingent for the World Championship. She ran the distance and crossed the finished line as the 74th female participant.

Everyone has ups and lows and the way to deal with them really defines who you are,” Anjali says.

  8. Grooming industry saw a huge shift over the last decade but certainly, there were a few trends that have stayed with us the longest. Men are more aware as they are delving more into this arena and taking care of themselves with a routine that suits them well. The classic grooming trends made it big in the past and honestly will continue to realm this industry even after a decade. The rise of these trends is sure a safe bet for you! 1. Handlebar Moustache Handlebar moustaches are a classic for an elegant look. So, if you are hoping to grow one, we would say go for it. This particular moustache is curved on top and is lengthy. Also known as the spaghetti moustache, this trend made its mark in this decade. Moustaches were once an asset for soldiers during the 19th century but even now, this unconventional style is garnering all the attention. © Instagram/Ranveer Singh 2. Thick Beard It's no more a secret that beards, especially the long, luscious ones, have become a popular trend in the grooming industry. The best thing about having a beard is the fact that it can be styled in many ways and this asset can instantly add an oomph factor to your look. The bushy beard adds a great texture to your skin and also exaggerates your jawline. It's been 10 years but this trend stayed put and is reigning the industry. © Instagram/Suniel Shetty 3. Man Bun If you have long hair and you are having a bad hair day, a man bun will come to your rescue. The man bun is now a signature look and many street-style aficionados have been nailing the man bun. In 2014, we saw Chris Hemsworth and Leonardo DiCaprio knocking it out of the park with this hairstyle. Even Kit Harington's hairstyle in GOT was a big inspiration and it proves that man bun will never fall out of fashion. © Instagram/Riteish Deshmukh 4. The Fade Haircut The fade haircut first saw its way in the 40s and 50s. This hairstyle has been popular in the military due to the strict grooming standards. Over the last 10 years, it has proven to be a testament for many men. Undoubtedly, the trend has now modernised and we see versatile hair cuts like a short fade haircut, razor faded pompadour or mid-tier fade. We have definitely come a long way! © Instagram/Hakim Aalim 5. Manscaping Manscaping is no more an uncommon phenomenon. Every guy used to and still spends time to upkeep the game. Manscaping before was quite bold and over the top. In the 60s, it was all about hairy backs and chest hair. Speaking of 21st century, manscaping revolutionised and men started taking care of their body hair quite seriously. Everything, right from back hair to chest hair to armpits, there were open conversations and it all started becoming mainstream. Now, manscaping is as important as grooming, all thanks to these ten years that made it a significant topic. © Instagram/kartik aaryan View the full article
  9. When Akshay Kumar kidnapped his boss' dog in the movie 'De Dana Dan' and demanded extortion money, every desi person had a good laugh. Most people were like, "Yeah right, you think she's going to pay crores to get her dog back?" Well, you might think it's a crazy idea, but people in real life love their pets more than they love humans, and they can go to any lengths for them. It's fine if you don't believe my words, but this dog parent from San Francisco is proof that I am right. View this post on Instagram // we caught feelings // A post shared by emilie talermo (@emilie.talermo) on Oct 14, 2019 at 10:26am PDT A few days ago, Emilie Talermo lost her 5-year-old dog Jackson after he got stolen from outside a grocery store, and since then she's been looking for him everywhere frantically. Jackson is a blue-eyed Australian Shepherd who was tied outside the grocery store and according to the store's surveillance camera footage, a man wearing a hoodie walked towards it, clicked pictures, petted it and then untied it and walked away with the dog. "He's always with me. It's a very real love. I just need help finding him," Emilie told media. © Bring Jackson Home (Dot) Com Now, Talermo has started her search mission where she has created a website to find her dog and is also offering $7000 as reward. It's close to Rs. 5 lakh by the way. In fact, she has even hired a plane to look for her lost dog. Reportedly, the plane will circle San Francisco and Oakland with a banner that will display the name of that website. The plane is apparently going to circle for 2 hours over the cities and cost $1200 which is Rs. 85,350 approx. However, due to bad weather that flight got delayed. © Bring Jackson Home (Dot) Com She's also raised more than $7000 on GoFundMe and she plans to donate the extra money to a dog rescue organization. We hope Emilie finds Jackson soon. This is true love, guys. View the full article
  10. The winters are here and most of us have already started leaning towards hitting the snooze button and going back to sleep instead of hitting the gym. But, there's one guy who has already unlocked the ultimate level of fitness and is now making men burn in jealousy and women go weak in their knees. That guy is actor-comedian Kumail Nanjiani who has set social media on fire with his insane and unbelievable transformation. Until a year ago, Nanjiani was a guy with a great sense of humour and wit. Now, he's a guy with talent, humour and a ripped body with abs that will hurt when he laughs at his own jokes. Well, the guy even got an honorary mention in the 'Muscular Men' category on PornHub. View this post on Instagram It's been a weird couple of days... This is NOT photoshopped. Pornhub changed their picture of the Muscular Men category to... me. As I said, weird couple of days. A post shared by @ kumailn on Dec 17, 2019 at 8:44am PST In case you didn't know, Nanjiani has been roped in for Marvel's upcoming movie The Eternals and his transformation is for the role of Kingo. The same movie that has names like Kit Harington, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek. Nanjiani wrote while sharing the pictures of his transformation on social media, "I never thought I'd be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I've worked way too hard for way too long so here we are." Same dude, same! We never thought, we'll be talking about your 'thirsty shirtless' pictures. Anyway, he further wrote, "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel's Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn't have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I'm glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time." View this post on Instagram I never thought I'd be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I've worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel's Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn't have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I'm glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I'll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!) A post shared by @ kumailn on Dec 16, 2019 at 8:10am PST He also thanked his trainer for helping him achieve this and his wife Emily for putting up with his workout and dieting. The star cast also includes names like Richard Madden, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Lia Mchugh, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan and Gemma Chan. Seriously, if the names like Kit Harington, Angelina Jolie, and Salma Hayek weren't enough to raise our curiosity bar, Kumail just took things a notch higher with his unbelievable transformation.

  11. Prakash Javadekar is currently serving as the Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change; so we assume that whatever he says about the environment and climate change will be fact-based, research-based and in short, make sense. Well, turns out, it's not necessarily true. On one hand where Delhi is choking on the polluted air, Prakash Javadekar on the other hand apparently claims that there is no connection between air pollution and a shorter life span. He made this remark in the Parliament where he said that no Indian study has shown that pollution shortens life and criticised the Opposition for allegedly creating a "fear psychosis among people". © Reuters Wait! Does that mean we can take deep breaths outdoors or throw those pollution masks away? Not at all. Before you even think something like that, check out WHO's reaction towards his statement. The World Health Organisation said that the world body wished that air pollution "did not kill people but it unfortunately does". In fact, according to Dr. Maria Neira, WHO Director (Public Health), "Independent of which methodology is used or what are the estimates, it is urgent to take action because the levels of air pollution in certain cities in India are very high and this is definitely having an impact on the health of citizens." © BCCL Neira further said, "We urge the Indian government, which has enormous amounts of expertise and competencies, to do its best in tackling the sources of air pollution and reducing toxic pollutants that citizens are exposed to at the moment." Looks like we still have a long way to go before we can throw those masks in some corner of our room. Desi people, as expected could not believe Javadekar's words and took to social media to express their concern and join WHO to virtually facepalm at his statement. What kind of minister is this ? @PrakashJavdekar - you need to read about what medical fraternity has to say on pollution ! @IndiaRebellion / @CPCB_OFFICIAL / @PMOIndia / @narendramodi - we need to act on this crisis with sense of emergency & panic !! https://t.co/SchY3LGwud — Anupama Pande (@AnupamaPande2) December 8, 2019 Wow ð® so we should just embrace pollution now and call it part of “economic growth” ? @PrakashJavdekar - sad to see such mindset !! @CPCB_OFFICIAL - so no action needed now !

  12. Normally, when a cricketer moves away from the game on an “indefinite sabbatical”, people don't fret too much over him and the athlete eventually fades away from the headlines in a couple of months. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not just another cricketer. He has been one of the greatest to have led the Bleed Blue Army. His athleticism, even at 38 years of age, is manifolds better than that of international cricketers 10 years younger than him; his unique ways of making things work out for Team India, his ability to stay calm under extremely crucial moments in big games and his skills as a wicket-keeper batsman make him a once-in-a-generation player. Everything he does off the field, his love and respect for the Indian Army, his donations and selfless work for the betterment of the society make him an exceptional human being off the field as well. Everything that Dhoni does feels great. GOD can't be everywhere so he made Mahendra Singh Dhoni https://t.co/hdvcSctdvz — Prachi Das (@PrachiNotDesai) October 19, 2019 However, there is nobody, not even Mahi, that's bigger than the game. Ever since the former skipper moved away from his roles as a Man in Blue after the disappointing exit from ICC World Cup 2019, the world has been puzzled about his return to the game and what exactly is going on in the mysterious mind of 'Captain Cool'. And when he extended his leave from the Indian dressing room in November, it only infuriated the fans of Indian cricket even more. Finally, last week, Dhoni made a comment about his future. He said, “January tak mat poocho (don't ask me till January),” moving his comeback date forward by another two months. "Okay bye, Don't ask me till January" ð This is how Dhoni responded when reporter questioned about his future plans at yesterday's event. ðâ¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/XT1uB8D7Tt — DHONIsm™ â¤ï¸ (@DHONIism) November 28, 2019 Just like in a relationship, it might be too late for Dhoni to comeback and the Indian cricket team might already have moved on with someone younger like Rishabh Pant or Wriddhiman Saha. On Friday, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly spoke to the Indian media on his thoughts of Dhoni's timeline to return and whether he will be a part of the T20 World Cup or not. Dada simply said, “Please ask MS Dhoni.” In response, he said, "Please ask #MSDhoni." The former skipper recently said that till January he won't answer questions on his cricketing future. #Dhoni has been out of action since India's semifinal exit from #WC2019.#sauravganguly — newsblunt (@newsbluntmedia) December 1, 2019 "There is clarity, but certain things cannot be said on public platform. There is absolute clarity on MS Dhoni and you'll find out in time," Ganguly said. Maybe the "clarity" only suggests that Dhoni's breakup with Team India is going to be as anti-climactic as it gets. Given his quiet and noiseless nature, this could be the way the former skipper wanted to move away from the game, maybe forever this time. View the full article
  13. Imagine this situation - a man is married to a woman who loves someone else. For his wife's happiness, the man decides to file for divorce and help her reunite with her lover. Wow, now that's a story of selfless love that we don't get to see often. I know what you guys are thinking. The last time it happened was in 1999 with Ajay Devgn, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Salman Khan in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Well, you're right, but something similar happened recently in Bhopal too where a man agreed to divorce his wife so she can marry her lover and we guess it's time someone thought of a sequel to the movie on these lines. Mahesh (name changed) is a software engineer by profession who has been married to Sangeeta (name changed), a fashion designer for seven years now and have two kids. They were living happily or so the people around them thought, until one day Mahesh found out about the man his wife was in love with before their wedding. She wanted to marry him but her father was, reportedly, against their relationship and married her off to Mahesh instead. After her wedding, she found out that the guy was so heartbroken that he decided not to marry anyone else. So, they started talking and she fell for him again. This led to arguments between Mahesh and Sangeeta as she realised that she wanted to live with her lover. So, Mahesh approached a family court to file for divorce from his wife to help her reunite with the man she loves. For his wife's happiness, Mahesh was willing to let her go and live with her lover. However, Mahesh also said that he doesn't want any of these developments to affect their kids, so he filed for divorce and sought custody of the children. He further said that the wife can visit the children whenever she wants. Now, that's a really brave thing Mahesh did there. View the full article
  14. Apple's current-generation iPhones, as we already know, are extremely powerful. When it comes to the performance, there's hardly anything out there that's as powerful as the new iPhones. There are a ton of benchmarks out there to prove the same. And if the new report is something to go by, then it looks like, the next set of iPhones will be more powerful. The report by MacRumors suggests that the iPhone 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max will offer up to 6GB RAM. That's right, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max both are likely to have 6GB RAM, up from 4GB in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. © Apple Apple is one of the very few companies that has managed to nail OS optimisation. The iPhones work so well with iOS that RAM has never really been an issue. While Android phones have been carrying 6GB and 8GB RAM for a long time now, the 3GB RAM on the iPhone X has been a bottleneck. iPhones have great memory management and we expect them to remain the same, if not get better over time. Now that we're hearing rumours about the next iPhones having up to 6GB of RAM, we think it'll only make them more powerful. Although we don't have an official confirmation yet, we're expecting the RAM to be faster too. That way, the phones won't slow down over an extended period of time since it won't be a bottleneck, to begin with. In addition to that, the new iPhones are also expected to feature rear-facing 3D sensing and mmWave support for higher-performance 5G. And as far as the base model iPhone 12 is concerned, it's said to have 4GB of RAM. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Lastly, the report also says that the iPhone SE2 is still in the pipeline and its production is set to begin in February, 2020. All these information come from a reliable source, but we won't know anything for sure until we get any sort of confirmation directly from Apple. View the full article
  15. Kartik Aaryan is one actor whose sense of style seems to be constantly evolving. Post his birthday, Kartik has started experimenting with some of the more rad trends right now. For instance, when he was recently seen with his Pati Patni Aur Woh co-actor Ananya Pandey, he was in a rather cool all-black co-ordinated set and sneakers. Kartik's hoodie was from Represent and his joggers were from UJNG with graphics printed all over, making the pair of joggers all the more quirky. He completed his look with heeled rubber sneakers by Both. Take a look here: © Manav Manglani © Manav Manglani However, this outfit is consistent with Kartik's boy-next-door aesthetic styled by Priyanka and Kazim, his stylists. This is not the first time he's worn something offbeat along with Ananya. They have been spotted wearing coordinated iridescent sneakers together. Last week, the 29-year-old actor wore edge boots and a nocturnal hoodie for his birthday party. And while he is usually seen in quirky silhouettes, for his upcoming film Pati Patni Aur Woh, he's also developed a different persona altogether. The much awaited film is scheduled to release on December 6, this year. This only means more quirky outfits for Kartik for the film's promotions and that we honestly, can't wait to see.

  16. Varun Dhawan is a big-time WWE fan. As a self-confessed Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson fan, he also doesn't mind hanging out with other wrestlers and divas from the industry. In fact, he's more than willing. For example, when Varun met WWE women's champion, Charlotte Flair, his excitement was reflecting through his outfit rather clearly. Now usually, Varun Dhawan would wear something offbeat or rather a glow-in-the-dark outfit which has now become his signature. But for this special occasion, he surprisingly chose a bright yellow coordinated outfit that looked like a onesie. Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani However, what took our attention were the shoes that he was wearing. He was spotted wearing the Instapump Fury Boost, a silhouette which is a product of a recent collaboration of both adidas and Reebok with classic white, royal blue, and solar orange Fury colourways. This silhouette comes for the price of Rs. 18,999. For his film, Street Dancer, which is set to release in 2020, he anyway has collected a major collection of rad sneakers that fit the aesthetic of a street dancer. This outfit falls under this category, perhaps. Considering, this was a one-off occasion wherein Varun got to meet Charlotte Flair, he clearly put his best foot forward with the 'Fury' silhouette quite literally. View the full article
  17. Was Avengers: Endgame an incredible, marvellous movie? Definitely. Was it the best Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to date? Probably, still debatable. Is it an Oscar-worthy movie? Oh, hell no. But, Disney is not ready to accept that even though they made the highest-grossing movie of all time, it's still not worthy of an Academy Award. It's kinda funny, but well, they're shooting their shot by submitting literally everyone for an Oscar, probably thinking 'kisi ko toh galti se mil jaayega'. The list of actors and everyone else who worked on Endgame that was submitted by Disney for an Oscar nomination consideration is out, and it reads more like the end-credits of the movie, tbh. From RDJ to Kevin Fiege, here are all the people who may or may not end up getting an Oscar nod. © Disney Wow, that's a lot of people. Disney, just calm down man, this is way too much. It's kind of nice to see there are a lot of sensible die-hard Marvel fans who agree that Disney is just making a fool out of themselves for thinking any, let alone all of them, deserve an Oscar nomination. On the other hand, a lot of fans think that Endgame does deserve an Oscar and it's making me think that maybe, just maybe, Martin Scorsese was somewhat right. This person just said what everyone else is thinking. no single actor in avengers endgame deserves an oscar lmao this is not the people's choice awards — josie (@nightwving) November 7, 2019 Can't get over this. when joaquin phoenix gets an oscar nom over all the avengers cast pic.twitter.com/8EboMUs3Q0 — j (@eunbisana) November 7, 2019 Yep.

Sorry not sorryð¤·ð»‍âï¸ — Charity Salposial (@imaweirdgirl) November 8, 2019 This is it. This is the best tweet. It's laughable that Disney thinks any performance from Avengers: Endgame deserves an Oscar, much less *thirteen*.

Is Brie Larson really being pushed to possess an Oscar Award for her performance in Avengers: Endgame?

  18. Diwali is over and so is our reason to officially take any leaves in the name of festivals until Christmas; but what's left with all of us is a thick layer of smog and 'hazardous' air that we'll have to breathe on our way to work from now on. Well, thanks to the air quality, at least we can now apply for sick leaves. According to the reports and surveys, Delhi's overall air quality index (AQI) was at 506, a day after Diwali. In the early hours, the AQI reached 999. So, unless you're really terrible in Mathematics, you can calculate how toxic the air has become for us. © Reuters When some people were busy bursting firecrackers and doing their bit to contribute to the already high air pollution in Delhi, there were some who were doing what they are good at - making hilarious memes on air quality. Soon, the hashtag #DelhiChokes started trending and while we were already coughing and sneezing in the 'hazardous' air, these hilarious made us choke more with laughter.

  19. Apart from being a stellar actor, Ranveer Singh is a B-town hunk known for his impeccable sartorial choices. The king of quirk never fails to grab eyeballs with his OTT outfits and he plays his cards just the right way. His fashion-forward styles are lauded at times but have also raised eyebrows of the netizens at times and yet he makes a statement in everything like it's NBD. Be it his long sneakers or his baggy pants, his fashion choices are as crazy as they can get. © Viral Bhayani Recently, the 'Gully Boy' actor stunned us stepping out in a most basic outfit. But one thing that definitely stood out in his entire 'lewk' were his neon orange sneakers. © Viral Bhayani Ranveer being known for his eccentric style took his look a notch higher with a pair by Adidas and when we dug deeper, we found that this pair is actually quite affordable. So affordable that even an intern can buy them! Exhibit A: © Adidas © Adidas Ranveer here is wearing EQT Support 91/18 shoes that have a built-in stretchy knit, making it a comfortable choice for runners. Not just that, these sneakers look stylish and have an innovative equipment spirit designed with the latest, advanced technology. The boost cushioning makes this pair quite distinct. © Adidas © Viral Bhayani We have seen Ranveer opting for luxury brands that can easily burn a hole in our pockets. This time, the sneakers that he is sporting are available on the Adidas website for just Rs 8,999. Quite affordable, right? He went all black with his attire but his neon orange sneakers amped up his whole repertoire. Keep up the game, Mr Singh. View the full article
  20. If there's one B-town star whose fashion sense has no bounds and limits, we would all know the answer and that is Ranveer Singh. He is called 'the king of fashion' and literally no other celebrity has been able to dethrone him. His eerie outfits, from extra AF long pants to the longest sneakers, he makes us all go berserk over all his looks. © Viral Bhayani And just when you thought he might stop for a bit, he was spotted yet again with his quirky style game. Ranveer walked down the ramp for Simple Simone in a metallic outfit with space-age sneakers that totally have a futuristic vibe to them. Exhibit A: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Oct 19, 2019 at 7:04am PDT © Viral Bhayani These metallic sneakers have avant-garde aesthetics. They are so out-of-the-box that the pair can instantly up your street style creds. Not just that, these sneakers sure have a futuristic vibe with their dramatic construction. And since these sneakers do have space-age aesthetics, we believe that NASA might approve of the style and would want to redesign their own version too. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani It was not just Ranveer's shoes that had the futuristic feel to them but even his outfit checked all the boxes right. He walked the ramp with an embroidered bomber jacket coupled with metallic pants. Plus, the cap and super edgy sunglasses are just perfect with the 'lewk'. What can we say, you nailed it again, Ranveer!
  21. Who said your job has to be monotonous, and that you should tolerate a drab and dull day at work? Humans are known to be innovators and we always find ways of changing things around us to serve our purposes better. Take the example of this Sikh traffic cop, for instance, who not only took care of his duty but also made it musical and fun. A video featuring a Sikh traffic cop from Chandigarh has gone viral on social media, where he can be seen delivering lessons on traffic rules and regulations through a Punjabi song. This can only happen in India and that too by a Punjabi cop.pic.twitter.com/7jdhZaakaO — Tarek Fatah (@TarekFatah) October 18, 2019 And the tunes of this cop's anthem is not just any random combination of musical notes, but inspired by our OG Punjabi singer Daler Mehndi's memorable 90s song Bolo Ta Ra Ra! The only difference being that the lyrics no longer talks about a woman, but instead, reminds people on the road about traffic rules that must be followed to avoid any unnecessary hassles. The cop urges people to park at the appointed spots and avoid getting their car towed or stolen in the process. The cop seems to be enjoying this part of his job, and we're sure commuters wouldn't have complained either. People online cannot stop enjoying themselves and laugh along with the video.

  22. If you boil down a film to its fundamental parts, it's really a marriage between two things - sound and visuals, both of which happen to be seeing dialogue and plot on the side. It's no secret that David Fincher happens to be a proud master of them all - a title well-earned after his commercial failure and utter cult success as the director of Chuck Palhanuik's Fight Club. That's right. We're going to be diving into that thing we're not supposed to be talking about. Through its commentary on everything from emasculated 21st century men to the modern trap of consumerist culture, this film managed to capture the ethos and very spirit of pre-9/11, urban rat-race America. 20 years on however, we're provided with an interesting viewpoint to revisit some of Fincher's best scenes, especially considering how the subject matter has evolved over time - so here's four of the film's most iconic themes, and how we ought to look at them today. Insomnia & Consumerism (We don't order furniture from catalogues anymore, for a start.) The most overt and obvious theme in Fight Club is, well, overt consumerism and capitalism. The Narrator (Edward Norton), finds himself a prisoner of his own life - blankly staring into nothingness no matter where he is and what he is doing. At one point, The Narrator tells us 'when you have insomnia, you're never really asleep, and you're never really awake,' mirroring a very common sense of half-consciousness experienced by average people today. As he says this, the camera pans to reveal him mindlessly gazing at an infomercial for balding men which is unusual, considering 30-year-old Edward Norton's pretty full head of hair. The fact that he's so paralysed by this suggests that he's not just half-conscious due to lack of sleep, but that consumerist culture is also eating away at him. via GIPHY It's even more prevalent when you consider just how far he's distanced himself from the world and his dreary life - the very space required for Tyler Durden to sneak into existence. The lack of sleep, and said sleep replaced by an endless parade of advertising - you'll even find it right here while reading this article. There is no escape. When Life Gets Predictable While you may assume that the term 'Rationalism' is simply reliance on logic and reason, it also refers to a sociological concept - the replacement of traditions, values and emotions as social motivators with concepts grounded in logic, such as efficiency and productivity. It's pretty much impossible to avoid noticing this today - corporate email jargon and modern advertising have bleached the colours out of life for pretty much everybody. In the narrator's story, everything in his life is mass-produced and exceedingly predictable - right down to the colour of his boss' tie. It's after the narrator blows up his own apartment (while repressing the memory) and grabs a drink with Tyler, that he comes face to face with this problem. Tyler's answer? “The things you own, end up owning you.” Mind you, Palhanuik wrote this shit down ages before the first iPhones - although Fincher did pull a fast one on Starbucks. If you're rewatching this film, try and spot all the Starbucks cups he's included in this film - there's almost one for every single scene. How Toxic Masculinity Is Born Tyler Durden's purpose, statement and general idea is made pretty clear to the audience once the Fight Club itself is established - he wants to frame consumerism as the downfall of masculinity. Some of this is made clear from the very beginning, where The Narrator is portrayed as a perfect example of the emasculated male. He feels degraded by his job, he's psychologically weak and goes to support groups to hug strangers and cry - not exactly an example of peak masculinity, according to Tyler. As the group shares stories of being cuckolded and thrown aside, we meet Bob, introduced to us in the famous 'bitch tits' scene. Bob, once a bodybuilder, literally and figuratively loses his balls to testicular cancer, along with developing pseudo-breasts due to his hormone therapy. Along with his manhood, he ends up losing his family, his career and as a result, his sense of humanity. These men seek their answer by resorting to something they can never do in their dissatisfying everyday lives - reaching for one extreme of masculinity by being really, really violent. While Tyler ridicules the world of mass-produced masculinity, he sells them another, more visceral kind of manliness - one that changes them almost instantly. This isn't where the echo of emasculation ends, however. As the film goes on, Tyler reveals Project Mayhem - a scheme cooked up to demolish the consumerist nature of modern society. It's here that we see things coming full circle - as the men found meaning in Fight Club, Project Mayhem simply takes it away from them - this time turning them into identical, nameless soldiers willing to listen not to their bosses, but to Tyler Durden. (Note: The above clip contains a narration directly from the novel.) The emasculation is even more obvious when you take a look at Project Mayhem's punishment for interfering with the plan - straight up castration. In retrospect, this was a film destined to remain forever stuck in the 90s. It was a straight-up commercial failure during its release, and treads dangerous ground when we speak about modern portrayals of men and violence in cinema. Things don't attain cult status for nothing though, and despite every rewatch and reread of this story… there's something about blood, sweat and a penchant for chaos that resonates with every man who's sat in a cubicle, and thought about these words: via GIPHY
  23. Over the last decade, Chris Gayle has established himself as the most dangerous batsman of this generation, if not of all time. A big part of his journey towards becoming the feared powerhouse that he is, has been plying his trade in franchise tournaments in the Indian subcontinent. He has featured for Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and teams from Lahore and Karachi in the Pakistan Super League. The love he has received from the subcontinent has been unparalleled. So, it comes as no surprise to see Chris Gayle show his support in creating the spectacle that is India vs Pakistan. In the run-up to the game to be played between the two rivals in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, he showed off his 'special outfit' for the game on social media. View this post on Instagram Yup!

  24. This week, Monday came bearing its own set of saddening news for all the cricket fans in India. As an emotional Yuvraj Singh sat there informing the media about retiring from all forms of international cricket, all of us were forced to go back down the memory lane reminiscing all the magic tricks Yuvi pulled off throughout his colourful cricket career. © Reuters From being a 17-year-old making his international debut in 2000, to being a prominent stalwart in Dhoni's top squad for a long time, Yuvraj will remain one of the most prolific batting all-rounders that the cricketing world has witnessed. Nothing could hold back this champion who wielded his willow as thunderously, as he demolished the cancer in his lung that threatened to take over. © Reuters Yuvraj will always remain the unrivaled “sher” Indians have had the luck to witness. That's the reason why industry bigwigs and fans have been showering the man with well-deserved praises. All that said, the latest celebrity to join the bandwagon is Bollywood rapper Badshah who penned an emotional and elaborate message for Yuvraj Singh, giving him credit for instilling hope in the hearts of thousands of youngsters like himself to dream big and turn it into a reality. © Instagram Badshah praised Yuvraj not only for his superb skills on the field, but also for being a genuine sportsman who has always been devoted to the game, and risen above every challenge that came his way. Read Badshah's heartfelt message here: View this post on Instagram This man in the picture will always be a legend to me. Yuvi paaji is probably one of the reasons for where i am in life right now. The young kid from chandigarh who excelled in his profession and became world class. He gave hope to a lot of kids from chandigarh. One of them was me. Through his game, he made a statement that it does not matter which city youre from, what matters is where you want to go, where you want to reach and what you want to be. A typical chandigarh guy who loves his cars and his food became an inspiration for millions of kids. He taught me not to give a **** about people who put you down and how you should let your work do the talking. And his work screamed. His work roared, straight into the face of the opponents. Not a flinch. Sweeping and pulling 360 degrees. Sher khan on the field and bagheera off the field. He taught me how to bounce back. He taught everyone how to bounce back. And that too with swag. Took cancer by its horns and defeated it without a frown. Crushed whatever doubts anyone had about him or his form and fitness post cancer. Again, no words, just some magnificent batting on field. Let his bat do the talking. And once the destruction was done, he'd go back to normal life of a typical chandigarh guy - food, friends and family. No media gungho, no glorifying PR stories. Just a simple guy who loved to play for his country. I feel blessed and lucky to be able to see you play live paaji. Im a little emotional as i write this. I will miss you. India will miss you. There would never be anyone else worthy of jersey no. 12. A post shared by BADSHAH (@badboyshah) on Jun 10, 2019 at 12:15pm PDT
  25. From prediciting (years before they actually happened) Donald Trump's presidency, Ebola virus outbreak, 5th episode of 'Game of Thrones Season 8' to predicting almost every breakthrough in technological invention, The Simpsons family knows the future like no one else. For those who don't know or have never heard about 'The Simpsons', I will assume that you were living under a rock all this time. FYI, the show that made its debut in 1989 is a satirical portrayal of a family, who lives in the fictional town of Springfield. The members in the family are Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. © Fox Studios However, except for the fact that the show made some crazy predictions that came true, how well do you know 'The Simpsons', one of the legendary families and sitcom in the history of television? We've compiled a list of some interesting facts that even the show's fans (except the biggest ones maybe) probably didn't know. 1. It usually takes around 6 to 8 months to create a single episode of 'The Simpsons'. 2. 'D'oh' is actually a word that was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2001. The word is defined as: "Expressing frustration at the realisation that things have turned out badly or not as planned, or that one has just said or done something foolish." 'D'oh' is my favourite word now. © Fox Studios 3. This is the longest-running prime-time comedy and animated series in the history of American television. The show also holds the record for most guest stars on a television series. 4. In case you missed it, all the characters in the show have only 4 fingers on each hand, except God. Only God has five fingers. 5. Wonder why the show's main characters are yellow in colour? In order to attract the attention of channel hoppers. And you thought there was some hidden meaning behind it! 6. Bart's hair always consists of nine points, except for when it's combed. 7. Until 1998, the six main voice over actors earned $30,000 per episode. Between 1998 to 2004, they made $125,000 per episode. Today they make $507,000 (approx) per episode. © Fox Studios 8. TIME magazine in 1998 once called this show the century's best television series. In fact, in the same edition, they included Bart Simpson in the list of the century's 100 most influential people. Bart was the only fictional character to make it to the list. 9. In 1990, 'The Simpsons' released an album called 'The Simpsons: Sing The Blues'. One of the songs, 'Do The Bartman' was a global hit. But, did you know that the song was co-produced and co-written by none other than Michael Jackson, who was a huge fan of the show? Jackson also provided background vocals to the song. 10. 'The Simpsons' have visited all the seven continents. © Fox Studios 11. The show is the first, and so far, the only animated series to be nominated for Golden Globe for Best Television Series - musical or comedy. 12. Elizabeth Taylor, Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Mark Hamill, Steve Buscemi, James Caan, Ricky Gervais, and Joe Mantegna are the only guest actors to play both themselves and a fictional character on the series. 13. The character of Otto the bus driver is believed to be based on 'Guns N' Roses' guitarist Slash. Both have long black curly hair and are avid snake collectors. © Fox Studios 14. The website that Homer created with false 'dirt' on many citizens, was accessible at www.mrxswebpage.com. While the website still exists, it now appears to be identical to www.fox.com. 15. Bart Simpson's voice is actually that of a woman. Nancy Cartwright first tried out for Lisa's voice, but eventually ended up lending it for Bart. 16. The show's creator Matt Groening named the characters after his own family members, except for Bart. 'Bart' is an anagram for 'Brat'. © Fox Studios 17. A kid who was Bart's age when the show aired for the first time will now be as old as Homer. You can catch the latest episodes of the 'The Simpsons' on Star World.
