  1. It's been months since not only one of the finest actors we've seen but also one of the most genuinely great people passed away and left everyone to mourn such a huge loss. Irrfan Khan's death personally affected so many people and he will always be remembered fondly. And, if the people who had never even met him were so immensely affected by his death, one can only imagine what his family felt like, have been feeling like since he passed away. © Twitter His son Babil shared a heartwarming video of his parents on Instagram and saying people are feeling emotional would be an understatement. The video shows Irrfan and his wife Sutapa singing ‘Mera Saaya Saath Hoga’ and him asking, "Mera saya ki tera saya?" View this post on InstagramMera saya ki tera saya? Dropping ma off at the airport now :(A post shared by (@babil.i.k) Such a bittersweet memory! Wholesome. © Instagram So many heart emojis. © Instagram Everyone misses him, everyone will always miss him. © Instagram Stil so hard to believe he's gone. © Instagram Yes, thanks for sharing such videos. © Instagram And, everyone is crying. © Instagram View the full article
  2. Netflix is arguably one of the most popular streaming services on the market, if not the best. In fact, things have only gotten better for them ever since the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions came into place. People now have more time in their hands than usual and it means more time to binge something on Netflix. Needless to say, Netflix is also good at enticing people and luring them into getting their subscription. On the same lines, the company is now going to offer a weekend-long trial in India. That's right, Netflix will host what it calls a "streamfest" in India and allow anyone and everyone to access their service for free. © Unsplash As reported by the folks over at Protocol, Netflix will offer its service for free on the weekend of December 4. Yes, there's still plenty of time but you might want to plan out how you're going to take advantage of this if you don't have a subscription already. In an earnings call, Greg Peters, the chief operating officer for Netflix, said, "We think that giving everyone in the country access to Netflix for free for a weekend could be a great way to expose a bunch of new people to the amazing stories that we have, the service, how the service works, really create an event, and hopefully get a bunch of those folks to sign up. So we’re going to try that in India.” © Unsplash/Glenn Carstens-Peters Although this "streamfest" seems to be limited to just India for now, we expect the same to trickle down in other markets too. We think Netflix is going to see some crazy response to this and they might end up getting some new subscribers in India. In case, you're wondering, you can sign-up for a subscription for as low as Rs 199 per month in India. View the full article
  3. Okay, I get it that Bollywood has to show everything to be dramatic and over the top but sometimes their tropes cross over the line to become so unrealistic, you just have to laugh at it. When it comes to schools and colleges being portrayed in movies, it almost feels like not a single person who worked on these movies has ever seen a real place of education. Everything is so out of touch and absolutely unrealistic, and people breaking into a song at any moment is not even the biggest point. So, here are some movies that gave a lot of false hope to people about how colleges are supposed to be. 1. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai © Yash Raj Films Of course, this takes the top spot. From the colourful interiors of the college to every girl having a crush on one guy in the entire college, this movie's college was something else. Moreover, which teacher is discussing love with her students in class? That has never happened in the history of education. Moreover, how are you going to bully the new girl by making her sing 'Om Jai Jagdish'. It was just there to show 'sanskaari' Tina is and that's why Rahul will fall in love with her, not tomboy Anjali. 2. Main Hoon Na © Red Chillies Entertainment Yes, every college student starts off their day by singing and dancing with the entire college, that is something that most definitely happens. And, whenever one student makes a bet with another student, that too over a girl, everyone will gather with big ass posters to cheer them stupidly running on the roof of the college, even the teacher and the principal. Totally normal. © Red Chillies Entertainment Also, if I'm remembering correctly, who gave Lakshman permission to smoke on the college campus? Uhh, that's one way to get suspended. And, while talking about Lucky, if he's such a bad student that he's been in college for years, who gave him admission in a science course? 3. 2 States © Dharma Productions It's completely normal for your girlfriend to live in your room in a freaking hostel, all the teachers will be okay with it, for sure. © Dharma Productions Yep, the most unrealistic thing is this movie isn't that Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor are dating, it's how no one cares how students are living in the hostel. 4. Mohabbatein © Yash Raj Films I get the whole extremely strict principal narrative, but come on, how are they keeping track of students and their relationships? © Yash Raj Films Instead of actually studying, students are just learning how to 'love' in college. Feeling for the parents paying so much money to send their kids to this prestigious institute. 5. Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na © Aamir Khan Productions No, when your cat dies, the entire college won't come together to sing and dance for you to cheer you up. But, besides that, it's very unrealistic to believe that you'll find your soulmate in college and it'll turn out to be your best friend. Not saying that it doesn't happen, but way too rare. © Aamir Khan Productions Moreover, all of them finished their college in the beginning of the movie and just didn't do anything after that, no job, no internship. Just finding boyfriends and girlfriends for your best friends. View the full article
  4. A history teacher who has shown caricatures of Prophet Mohammed in class was decapitated and his assailant was shot dead by the police while trying to arrest him. According to the police source, the victim was a history teacher who recently discussed the caricatures of Prophet Mohammed in class. The police source also said that the murder is linked to a terrorist organization that has a criminal association with terrorists. © Twitter/ABP News The news of the beheading in Paris suburbs in the name of religion led to the anger of people on social media as people across the globe condemned the heinous act. Also, four people were taken into custody after the incident. Many Bollywood celebrities such as Kangana Ranaut, Swara Bhasker, and others were quick to react and demanding for a strict action to be taken against the barbaric incident. Kangana Ranaut took to Twitter saying, “Hindus lives don’t matter, west till this date makes movies on 5-6 million Jews genocide, so it’s not repeated, through the slavery of hundreds of years do we know how many Hindus were killed? 100 times more than Jews in WW2, but no movies on Hindu genocide #parisbeheading.” Hindus lives don’t matter, west till this date makes movies on 5-6 millions Jews genocide, so it’s not repeated, through the slavery of hundreds years do we know how many Hindus were killed? 100 times more than Jews in WW2, but no movies on Hindu genocide #parisbeheading https://t.co/SQYu2XVbpQ — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) October 17, 2020A teacher is beheaded for a caricature, we can only imagine what those invaders must have done to our people during invasion, in today’s digital age with education and exposure they act like demons what they must have done to Bharat when they were Nomads? #parisbeheading — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) October 17, 2020 Swara Bhasker tweeted saying, “HORRIFYING! What monstrosity makes people do this barbaric stuff. Speechless with shock. Remember if you think ur God wants u to kill in his name- START WITH YOUR EFFIN’ SELF! #parisbeheading.” HORRIFYING!

  5. Ranveer Singh has made some insane style statements in the past. There have been so many instances where he showed us some zany ways to elevate one's outfit by adding an interesting element, either with his sneakers, his watch or his eccentric accessories. With time, his personal style has only become more distinct and quirky, and in some cases, also confusing. © Viral Bhayani From wearing denim curtain pants at the airport to turning heads in an all-animal print outfit, he has been seen in some of the most confusing and bizarre silhouettes at times. No matter how unhinged his choices are, the man clearly knows how to stand out, in a manner that no one has come close to, as yet. © Instagram/Ranveer Singh_Love Recently, the actor was seen yet again in an outlandish outfit, which looks more suitable for a football game. But instead of wearing it at the game, the actor rather wore it to a dubbing session and his choice of clothes left us quite puzzled. Take a look below: © Instagram/Ranveer Singh_Love Starting with his accessory choice here, Ranveer is seen wearing oversized white sunglasses, even when they aren't required. Well, that's his sartorial statement, which he usually tries and pulls off at an odd hour. As for his T-shirt, he has layered, a black jersey T-shirt over another white tee. Add to that, there's also a bright bandana, wrapped around his neck. © Instagram/Ranveer Singh_Love Next, he is seen wearing a pair of Adidas black shorts over a pair of blue tights. On top of it, he can also be seen wearing calf-length white striped socks, paired with Adidas black sneakers. While this is definitely a strange outfit, we have to say it's a glorious mismatch. He is a bonafide fashion icon but this recent look is an oddball, which is nothing like the past few appearances of his. © Instagram/Ranveer Singh_Love But say what may, even though we aren't able to relate much with this look, Ranveer didn't fail to garner our attention. It's certainly not the type of outfit men would choose or dare to wear in public but Ranveer shines through and through fashionably. Don't you agree? All in all, the actor has gone to the next level with this outfit and it perfectly complements Ranveer's persona. Well done, Mr Singh! View the full article
  6. On 24th September, when everyone was looking forward to the Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), one of the most popular and respected voices in international cricket, Dean Jones, passed away after suffering an unexpected heart attack in Mumbai. The 59-year-old had arrived in Mumbai at the behest of Star India who had organised a special commentary team for the coverage of IPL 2020. Like his fellow commentators, Jones was placed in a bio-secure bubble in a seven-star hotel in Mumbai. The former Australian cricketer had gone for a routine run early morning and had a cardiac arrest in the afternoon. His fellow commentator Brett Lee tried to revive him, but couldn't. Ever since the news of Jones' sad demise surfaced, cricket fraternity and fans have been paying tributes to one of the most iconic cricketers and an influential commentator on social media. His journey finally came to an end on 3rd October when his family and close friends bid him adieu in a private ceremony. One last lap of the @MCG for Deano, farewelled by ten of his closest family members over the weekend. Forever in our hearts! ️ pic.twitter.com/R2skRt2CkB — Cricket Australia (@CricketAus) October 7, 2020 According to media reports, Jones was given a lap of honour of an empty Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) with the tunes of Elton John and INXS played in the background. In a video shared by Cricket Australia (CA), a hearse carrying Jones' "handmade Indian coffin" was adorned with the Australian flag and a floral 324 arrangement showcasing the Oz's Test cap number. The private memorial service was limited to just 10 attendees, including his wife Jane, daughters Isabella and Phoebe and siblings, as per Victoria's ongoing COVID-19 lockdown rules. While a public memorial service is planned for a time when more mourners will be permitted to attend, Jane Jones revealed that her family was moved by the tributes pouring in for her husband.

It has been an awful time to navigate as a family, but I could not have thought of a more fitting place to say goodbye to my husband than under the lights of his beloved MCG," Jones' wife told ESPNCricinfo. © Twitter/@ProfDeano "What better way to honour him than with the music of his friends Elton John and INXS echoing throughout the empty stadium. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to the Melbourne Cricket Club and the MCG for their willingness to create our personal tribute to Dean and for Cricket Australia's support. We would also like to extend a big thank you to the Department of Foreign Affairs for ensuring Dean was returned home to us as quickly as possible. We will forever miss Dean's energy, his zest for life, passion for cricket and his love for us as a family," she added. Vale Dean Jones- A man that deserves no less than a standing ovation! We are all standing for you Deano. DJ1961-2020 Rest in Peace my friend #RIPDeano pic.twitter.com/Gm2KSCFLIG — Wasim Akram (@wasimakramlive) October 7, 2020 Born in Melbourne, Jones was a vital cog in Allan Border's world-conquering Australian side during his playing days. A natural showman who never hesitated from getting involved in verbal altercations with the bowlers, showed everyone the importance of running hard between the wickets and gave purpose to outfielders with his passionate fielding efforts, Jones wrote the virtues of being a successful limited-overs cricketer. Rest In Peace @ProfDeano One final lap of the MCG and his Theatre of Dreams is empty...a word that never featured in his lexicon. #RIPDeano — Alan Wilkins (@alanwilkins22) October 7, 2020 Often labelled as 'Prof Deano', the Australian legend played 52 Tests and amassed 3,631 runs including 11 hundreds, 14 fifties and a personal best score of 216 runs. The right-hander also played 162 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for Australia, scoring 6,068 runs including seven hundreds and 46 fifties. While the great Australian cricket icon might have left us all teary-eyed with his sudden demise, his legacy which is full of achievements, both on and off the field, will continue to live on.

You just need to look for it. © Netflix - I realized I was scared. Scared I would hate every second for the rest of my life. - You’re being emotional, it is understandable but unnecessary. - Mother believed privacy was the highest virtue, and the one most frequently violated. © Netflix - The choice is always yours. Whatever society may claim, it can’t control you. View the full article

  9. Open-world games are not only exclusive to PCs and consoles as there are plenty of games available to play on Android devices as well. If you’ve got a phone and a bluetooth gamepad, you can get the same experience in the palm of your hands. You don’t really need a gamepad but using one will surely result in a better experience. If you’ve been looking for the best open-world games on Android, check out our list below: 1. Stardew Valley © PlayStore If you are looking for a full farming simulator experience that has an explorable world and RPG elements, Stardew Valley is a great game to consider. In this game you can plant crops, vegetables, and even get married to another NPC if you want. There’s an entire town where you can befriend people and develop relationships with them. You can explore caves for precious minerals that you can later use to upgrade your tools. This game has everything and we highly recommend playing Stardew Valley if you want to kill some time. 2. Minecraft © Mojang The highest selling game in the world is also available to play on Android phones where you can explore an infinite world and build structures like simple homes or extravagant mansions. You can either use the creative mode to get your ideas flowing or play in survival mode where you have to avoid zombies and collect minerals from caves. Stardew Valley has definitely taken some inspiration from this game as it also has farming elements, but on a much more advanced level. You can even play with friends on other devices such as Windows 10 and iOS. 3. Portal Knights © PlayStore This 3D sandbox RPG has everything you would expect from an open-world game. Level up your character and create powerful weapons that you can use to defeat your enemies in real-time action combat. It’s a mix of Zelda and Skyrim but presented in a very cartoonish fashion. Explore dozens of randomly-generated islands and restore peace to a world torn apart by The Fracture. 4. Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath © PlayStore This game already looks like it belongs on consoles and PCs and is by far one of the better looking games on this list. In the undeveloped wastelands of Western Mudos, several settlements are besieged by outlaws. You play as the ‘Stranger’ a bounty-hunter who has a double-barreled critter-firing crossbow. This game is highly recommended by serious Android gamers who want to play a full open-world game on their phones. The game does have intuitive touch controls, but we recommend playing this one with a gamepad. 5. GTA San Andreas © YouTube Who could have thought you can play GTA: San Andreas on your phone right? You play as Carl Johnson who is deeply involved with gangs, drugs and corruption. Set in the 1990s, Carl goes back home to find his mother has been murdered. After his return, corrupt cops try to frame him for the murder of his mother. He is then forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets. View the full article
  10. Whenever people are talking about Priyanka Chopra, they end up using the words second-hand embarrassment more often than not. A lot of people agree that she crosses over to the cringe territory with a lot of what she does and it has been amplified so much more since she is one of the biggest Indian representation on an international level. From making statements that make no sense to doing stuff that makes us shake our heads in disappointment, she has made almost every desi person say that 'we don't claim her'. The desi girl has had so many cringe-inducing moments, but nothing can beat these five. Let's get some second-hand embarrassment together, shall we? 1. Photoshopping herself in a picture View this post on InstagramI’m always with you @nickjonas 😜😍Congratulations @jonasbrothers! I’m so proud of all of you! #suckerA post shared by (@priyankachopra) Nick Jonas awkwardly standing alone in the middle was hilarious and yes, Priyanka was just trying to be funny and a good wife by photoshopping herself in there. The intention was good but how are you going to photoshop yourself in such a way that you're whiter than actual white people? Like always, this was followed by a lot of trolling, and rightfully so. 2. The truly eerie vibe of this videoPriyanka Chopra shows her appreciation for first responders by clapping from her balcony during coronavirus lockdown. pic.twitter.com/f6wViUmlAw — Pop Crave (@PopCrave) March 24, 2020 She tried to celebrate Janta Curfew back in March, something that was happening in India, on the balcony of her mansion that is clearly not in India and also seems to be miles away from any civilization. The entire video is so bizarre and has such haunted vibes that it was mocked even in the USA. I kind of feel bad for Nick who was probably recording this video. 3. "Shexy shexy shaari"Happy 5-Month Anniversary to this embarrassment from Priyanka Chopra pic.twitter.com/H90sLSANui — Laraib (@ThandiLaash) November 15, 2019 Now this is something that haunts not just me, but so many other people. We really need a support group to deal with Priyanka saying "shexy shexy shaari". Why would you subject us to this atrocity, PeeCee? What have we ever done to you? As soon as I think I’ve found peace of mind I remember priyanka chopra saying “shexy shexy Shari” and then I get secondhand embarrassment & wanna scream at the top of my lungs all over again — sukhi (@mairanotmaria2) July 2, 2019 4. Her take on India rockDostana is Rock Music. DDLJ is a Superhero movie. Fashion is Horror. pic.twitter.com/vtcc18StNK — Old School Mausa (@AdvancedMaushi) September 18, 2015 What do you suggest to Bono when he asks about Indian Rock music? She has the answer. "The two men I found amazing were Bono and Bruce Springsteen. Bono asked me if there was rock in India. I consider myself a good brand ambassador and immediately sent him Rockstar, Rock On and Dostana as he wanted one of my films too." Just everything about this is too much to handle. 5. "Girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love" The best for last, this started a revolution online of sorts. Remember the little phrase "girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love" and how it was all over Twitter last year? The entire incident was too embarrassing on Priyanka's part as she just dismissed someone asking a question, and told them to not yell. 3. You claim you're "here for love" but elsewhere, you're NOT for love. That's the whole point. You're only HERE for love. Positivity culture is such bullshit and nearly always reeks of privilege and dismissal. 4. Patriotism and warmongering are two completely different things. — Imaan Sheikh (@sheikhimaan) August 11, 2019 View the full article
  11. Indians are one of the most ‘Jugaadu’ people in the world and here is the perfect example of the same. Recently, a class 10 boy from Chandigarh has managed to make his motorbike with just scrap material. © Twitter/ANI The motorcycle made by Gaurav runs on petrol and can cover 80Km on just one liter of fuel. Also, this is not Gaurav’s first attempt in creating a vehicle from scratch. In an interview with ANI, he revealed that three years ago, he created an electric bike from scrap material. He also expressed as to how it was only for speed issues that he converted the bike to petrol. Just looking at the motorcycle, one can judge that Gaurav has managed to put together parts from various other vehicles. The front fork tires are made from a bicycle and the rear half seems from some other motorcycle. He has also put in rearview mirror and lights on the motorcycle. © Twitter/ANI We are not sure if the bike can do speedy rounds on the road but the bike is getting famous on the internet. People have been praising Gaurav for his extraordinary efforts as a class tenth student was able to come up with a vehicle of his own. There are also major safety concerns associated with self-built vehicles. But the fact that he was able to build a bike is praise-worthy. View the full article
  12. Apple is somewhat considered a premium and luxury brand even for technology enthusiasts, however, we’ve seen the company shift away from that image this year. Apple launched the iPhone SE in April 2020 which is the most affordable iPhone the company has launched in years. We could see the Cupertino Giant apply the same strategy for one of their most successful products ever, i.e the Apple Watch. © andres-urena-unsplash The company usually launches a new Apple Watch alongside the latest iPhone every year, however, according to reliable leaker Komiya, Apple Watch SE may also be in the works. Currently, customers can buy the Apple Watch Series 5 and if they are looking for something cheaper, Apple Watch Series 3 repeatedly goes on sale. The fact that an older Apple Watch still manages to sell well may have prompted the Cupertino giant to launch an affordable version of the Apple Watch this year. It may even be a replacement for the Apple Watch 3 with a familiar design and longer battery life. © daniel-canibano-unsplash The leaker detailed that the Apple Watch SE will probably have the same design as the AW3 but will only come in an aluminium version. Having said that, Komiya also detailed the hardware that will be used for the rumoured watch. The new affordable Apple Watch is expected to use the S6 and W3 chips that are currently found on the Apple Watch Series 5. This means that the watch will not have a new design but impressive hardware that currently powers the latest Apple Watch. It is a similar strategy as the iPhone SE, where Apple uses up-to-date hardware but retains the classic design to distinguish with their latest products. How Much Will It Cost? Apple Watch SE - Old design - Replacement of Series 3 - S6 & W4 chip - All 16GB - Only Aluminium model - Digital Crown with haptic feedback? - Bluetooth 5.0 - international SOS calling (only cellular model) - Coming next March - Same prices as Series 3 pic.twitter.com/AV3IApxvnH — Komiya (@komiya_kj) August 16, 2020 The Apple Watch SE is rumoured to cost $199 i.e, around Rs 15,000 which is significantly cheaper than the flagship model. The new Apple Watch could be a new way for Apple to capture the wearables markets further as it would be a gateway for users who do not want to spend huge amounts of cash for Apple products.

  13. Remakes are barely ever a good idea. That statement holds true today, and it was true 21 years ago as well. Once upon a time, someone had the brilliant idea of just remaking the most popular TV show instead of, you know, coming up with something original. Piggybacking on something else's success is sadly not uncommon and it almost always has disastrous results. Proof? Just watch one episode, no actually just five minutes, of the Hindi version of a little known show called Friends. Very originally named Hello Friends, the show came out in 1999, when Friends was actually airing for real. Who came up with this idea of the Indian version? I just want to talk. I don't know what's worse - the blatant rip-off of every plot, or the fact that Cyrus Brocha is playing Chandler's character. And, of course, they can't keep the storylines involving *** or the fact that Carol, or Priya in this version, actually left because she was a lesbian. And, let's not even begin with the acting. All the actors on Friends were great actors, and on this, there's nothing but overacting. It's honestly painful to watch. Friends ran for ten seasons and fans would've honestly watched even hundred of seasons if they made them, but unsurprisingly, Hello Friends only has 26 episodes. People recently discovered or re-discovered the show, I guess people have a lot of time for obvious reasons and haven't stopped cringing since. If anyone wants to torture themselves, all the episodes are available on Zee TV's YouTube channel. experts are saying coronavirus is the worst pandemic of our time? thats cute. i think ur forgetting about summer of 1999 when the entire executive board of https://t.co/bq6CuYEvK4 did acid and decided to make desi Friends pic.twitter.com/KgY50doG87 — no-neck Ed from 90 day fiance hate account (@lookitshnb) August 12, 2020 Yep. Wow. Zee TV remakes FRIENDS as Hello Friends in 1999.

The fact that so many people are shocked that a desi version of FRIENDS exists is proof of how young people are here , it was called Hello Friends btw and it sucked balls. https://t.co/Tdrre1GWAN — Shreemi Verma (@shreemiverma) August 13, 2020 True. This should’ve stayed in 1999. Why did I see this — Thanos (@JainHritik) August 13, 2020 Hmm. pic.twitter.com/BSYkTo1atR — Rana Hasnain (@RaNaHaSnAiNsays) August 13, 2020 Yep. Yikes.

  14. While 2015 might not hold good memories for Indian cricket fans, especially after their heart-breaking loss against Australia in the World Cup semifinals, the year was made memorable by the unlikeliest of the nation's sports heroes. Satnam Singh Bhamara had etched his name in the history books after becoming the first-ever Indian to be drafted in the famed National Basketball Association (NBA). The then 19-year-old, standing tall at seven feet two inches and weighing just above 131 kg, was picked by the Dallas Mavericks as their 52nd pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. And, since then, that's the only thing he's ever been associated with. No one knows about his plight when he was warming up the bench. No one knows how Satnam felt when he was forced to move to the G-League after not featuring in a single NBA game. View the full article
  15. Ajay Devgn has done over 100 films and has been in the industry for the past many years now. Just like any other actor, he has also given many flops in his career. He is one of the topmost actors in the industry and has a huge fan following. He made his debut with the film Phool Aur Kaante and won a Filmfare for best male debut actor. So, here is a list of Ajay Devgn flops that disappointed the audience- Baadshaho Budget – 90 Crores Box Office Collection- 123 Crores The film was set in the 1975 emergency period and revolves around 6 people who take advantage to pull off a heist worth millions. The film failed to impress the audience and couldn’t match the expectations of the critics. Action Jackson Budget – 75 Crore Box Office Collection- 90.37 Crores Prabhudeva's directorial venture was an action comedy that couldn’t impress the audience. The Film starred Yami Gautam, Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role but even this stellar cast couldn’t keep the audience hooked to the screen. Satyagraha Budget – 68 Crores Box Office Collection- 65.7 Crores The film stars Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal amongst others in the film. The film revolves around a plot where Dwarka Anand serves prison time for assaulting a corrupt official while trying to get compensation for his dead don. Himmatwala Budget – 68 Crores Box Office Collection- 65.7 Crores The film was one of the biggest hits of the year 1983 and the songs of the film made people fall in love with them. But the remake of the film did exactly the opposite and made people cringe to another level. The remake starred Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah in the leading roles and we wouldn’t recommend anyone to watch this one, ever! Rascals Budget – 45 crores Box Office Collection- 49 Crores The film tanked at the box-office and wasn’t critically acclaimed. The film’s story revolves around two con artists who fall in love with a girl and try to win her over. However, an old victim kidnaps her to get his money back. View the full article
  16. Hrithik Roshan is known as the ‘Greek God’ of the industry and he is also a heartthrob of Bollywood. He has given us some amazing films like Super 30 & War recently but in the past, he has done blunders just like any other Bollywood actor. He is one actor who has surprised us by keeping a well-toned body throughout his journey in Bollywood. Also, his fitness regime has often motivated his fans to become better and make a better physique. He gave his Bollywood debut with Amisha Patel in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and the movie turned out to be a hit. The film left the audience impressed but then, he gave some flops that were total disasters and made the audience think twice before watching his films. Mohenjo Daro The film starred Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in the lead role. The story of the film revolves around a farmer who travels the city of Mohenjo Daro and grows to fall in love with a rich woman. The film was declared a flop as it didn’t make much money at the box-office and also couldn’t impress the audience. Kites The film starred Barbara Mori and Hrithik Roshan in the lead roles. The storyline of the film revolved around a dance teacher who marries an immigrant woman so that they could get a green card. But, when they meet again, they fall in love with each other. The film disappointed the audience and apart from the songs of the film audience didn’t find anything worthwhile. Mai Prem Ki Diwani Hun The Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan starrer film are still talked about and made fun of as both the actors overacted in the film. The film’s story wasn’t that bad but the movie turned out to be a cringe-fest due to Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan’s overacting in it. Mujhse Dosti Karoge The movie stars Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherji in the lead role. The film’s plot revolves around a bizarre storyline of how Raj falls in love with Tina after she writes him emails every day after he has moved overseas with his family. However, he is unaware that Pooja is the one writing the emails to him on Tina's behalf. The film couldn’t do numbers at the box-office and tanked badly. Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage This film starred Hrithik Roshan and Amisha Patel in the lead roles. The film did not impress the audience at all and flopped at the box-office. The film revolves around the story of a girl who desires nothing more than love in life and wants to get married to Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) but her family doesn’t agree and created problems for them. Her father wants her to get married to a family friend’s son and would stop for nothing. View the full article
  17. There's a feud going on currently post Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely demise. Kangana Ranaut has now expressed her displeasure and raised her voice against nepotism, talking about the movie mafias of the film industry. © MensXP © Twitter/TeamKanganaRanaut The actress recently was on a talk show with Arnab Goswami, where she didn't shy away from speaking the truth and highlighted the names of several moviemakers, who are out there, 'destroying the career of many newcomers and are tormenting them emotionally and mentally'. Kangana has been at loggerheads with filmmaker Karan Johar, ever since she came on his show, Koffee With Karan in 2017, where the whole fume of Nepotism started to spur. © Twitter/Kangana_FC After the recent interview with Goswami, Kangana's statement on Karan asking her to leave the industry, made the netizens dig up the clip, where the filmmaker told Kangana to stop playing the victim card. All this happened at a summit, which was downright humiliating. This the clip Kangana is talking about, Karan telling her to leave and people applauding. He attacked her on an international summit #KanganaSpeaksToArnab pic.twitter.com/ODl0jTHaxe — Navi (@NaviKRStan) July 18, 2020 In this interview, Karan Johar was asked about his opinion on the statement made by Kangana on his show at the LSE Indian Forum in 2017, to which he replied “I am done with Kangana playing the woman card and the victim card. You can’t be this victim who has a sad story at every given point of time, to tell how you have been terrorised by the bad world of the industry. Leave it." He also added "Who is forcing you on a gunpoint to be in the movies, leave, do something else,” And obviously, after hearing such bitter words for the actress, it became a talking point for the netizens and they are leaving no opportunity in slamming Karan for his insulting remark. Here's what everyone is saying: Look how he is smiling with an attitude after insulting their own industry talents. This is the first& foremost wish of karan to fill the entire industry with only starkids and that only starkids get all appreciation,fame& recognition not only in this industry but also worldwide. — Trishna Sharma (@Trishna82233652) July 18, 2020 WOW, I dont understand why are people applauding?! He is bashing a woman on interantional stage? Why do we tolerate him? #OnlyCBIForSSR — Isha Kaur (@IshaKaurssr2) July 18, 2020 Indian youth is so much brain washed & degraded that..a Chaka is their hero while a girl fighting for her place in film industry is laughed at. — bansi lal kaul (@Bansikaul) July 18, 2020 Went too far! Shameless hijda @karanjohar what's your talent? Running father's money to suit agenda? Apologise to @KanganaTeam , return Padma award, You don't deserve it — Only NamasteOnly Veggie (@Anu18Radha) July 18, 2020 @karanjohar She didn't come into the industry with your help or to appease you. She came to pursue acting which she likes. Who are you to ask her to leave? And students of @LSE who applauded to this, what a great achievement to make it to LSE without a spine. — Grrrrrrr! (@CherryColaZing) July 18, 2020 She has the guts to take on bollywood and this is the label given to her.. Victim card? She is standing up for herself + the many others who do not have a voice. She is also talking on behalf of the future upcoming talent that will be shut down if they don't play by their rules — Billy the Kid (@Baaaaadgoat) July 19, 2020 Run by their chamchas...I must confess I was blindfolded by their stunts and fake PR against @KanganaTeam but now I respect her more than ever — Reneesie (@Reneesie1) July 18, 2020In the interview, the actress remembered the time when Karan debased her with such a statement and there was hooting and people even clapped for it. She also mentioned that the industry choked everything for her, including marriage and financial security. She further asked, "Don't you think the thought of suicide would cross my mind?" Not just that, Kangana has also raised questions against other filmmakers including Mahesh Bhatt and Aditya Chopra, accusing them of vandalizing the career of the newcomers. What do you think about this recent war of words? Let us know. View the full article

  20. Thanks to novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the world is reaping all possible benefits of living in the age of social media. Amid travel restrictions, quarantine camps and lockdowns, social media has emerged as a desperate attempt for people to keep their sanity and overcome frustration while staying indoors. Ever since the deadly virus brought the world to a standstill, people across the globe have found refuge in social media that continues to throw viral challenges to keep everyone occupied and equally entertained. After the likes of 'Toilet Paper Challenge' and 'Stay-At-Home Challenge', another trend has gripped social media and its users. Enough pressure & public demand. Here's my #MeAt20. 1995, Rawalpindi. pic.twitter.com/f1zXS62JL2 â Shoaib Akhtar (@shoaib100mph) April 18, 2020 Taking social media by storm in the past 24 hours, the new '#MeAt20 Challenge' has already witnessed several celebrities taking it up. The latest social media fad, similar to the '10-year Challenge' in the past, shows the users sharing the pictures of their younger, 20-year-old selves. #MeAt20 pic.twitter.com/LtVB2B2dDG â Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) April 18, 2020 From Bollywood celebrities to even cricket icons, everyone has been having a gala time. But, while people embrace nostalgia on social media, let's go down the memory lane to revist the old cricketing gods we worshipped while growing up. Kumar Sangakkara © Reuters A law student, who broke into the Sri Lankan side at the age of 22, Kumar Sangakkara was destined to achieve greatness in international cricket. Arguably one of the few cricketers who looked graceful in their batting, the left-hander eased into his strokes with elegance which hinted that he was cut from a different cloth. Making his debut in 2000, Sangakkara matured steadily as a batsman and soon emerged as one of the vital cogs in the Sri Lankan batting order. Apart from his batting, Sangakkara's wicket-keeping skills, depite not being one for the purists, also helped him in establishing himself as one of Sri Lanka's greatest cricketers of all-time. Whether it was his batting skills, impressive glovework or ability to lead the side, Sangakkara was one of the few skilled cricketers who managed to become an all-time great. With over 594 international appearances for Sri Lanka, Sangakkara proved his credentials of an all-time great and captured the imagination of fans with 28,016 runs across formats. Brett Lee © Reuters For years, speeding and fiery bowlers from the West Indies ruled the charts for their impeccable fast-bowling skills. But, in the late 90s, Australia gave the world a new fast-bowling hero in Brett Lee. A bowler who could easily reach speeds close to 160kmph, Lee exercised great control over the line and length of his deliveries to make the task even more difficult for opposition batsmen. Arriving on the international circuit in 1999, Lee made an immediate impact by taking five wickets at the MCG against India. Competing with another speedster in that era, Shoaib Akhtar, Lee was probably helped by the former's knack for getting entangled in controversies that eventually denied him the glory he truly deserved. Charging in from a long run-up, bowling at sensational speeds and leaping high in the air to celebrate the dismissals, Lee was an embodiment of everything a fast bowler was expected to be. Adding to the popularity was also his smooth and silky hair, and not to mention, his wide smile. It's needless to say that everytime a kid raced in to bowl in a candid game of gully cricket, we bet he had Lee in his mind. Herschelle Gibbs © Reuters The world of cricket has witnessed numerous batsmen who've captured the imagination of fans on the back of their artistry with the willow. But, there remains some who did so with disdain. At a time, when someone like Chris Gayle was yet to arrive on the international circuit, Herschelle Gibbs was undeniably one of the most destructive batsmen around. Making his debut in 1996, Gibbs went on to become one of the most feared batsmen, batting at the top. But, his striking ability never got affected by his batting position. From cutting fast bowlers for a six, driving fiery bouncers down the ground for fours to effortlessly pulling the ball off the front-foot, Gibbs ensured there was never a dull moment till the time he was on crease. His most memorable knock came at the Wanderers in 2006 when he slammed a sensational 111-ball 175 to help South Africa chase down the unbelievable total of 434 runs and seal the ODI series win against Australia. It was innings like those that saw youngsters idolising Gibbs and cherishing his unique style of batting. And, if it wasn't for his run-ins with controversies later in his career, Gibbs would have probably had a greater fan-following. Daniel Vettori © Reuters In an era, where the likes of Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne and Anil Kumble had already stamped their authority in spin bowling, Daniel Vettori was busy carving his own niche on the international circuit. Making his debut in 1997, Vettori became the youngest man to play Test cricket for New Zealand at the age of just 18. His ability to drift the ball and back it up with subtle variations in flight, speed and length quickly earned him a reputation as New Zealand's most dangerous spinner. It was the mix of his impeccable spin-bowling skills that often confused the batsmen and turned the innocuous deliveries into unplayable rippers. But, Vettori's efficiency and contribution to the New Zealand brigade wasn't just restricted to his spin bowling. Apart from spinning a web around the opposition batsmen, Vettori was also more than handy with the willow lower down the order. In fact, he is one of only eight players to have managed the double of 300 Test wickets and 3000 runs in the longest format. And, his bearded look paired with elegant spectacles further made him one of the highly sought after cricketers amongst fans in those days. Sachin Tendulkar © Reuters Over the years, the world of cricket has witnessed numerous stars who've managed to capture the imagination of fans and etch their respective names in the history books, owing to their success on the field. But, no one comes close to the stature or popularity of great Sachin Tendulkar. His perfect balance and precision in stroke-making didn't just help the 'Master Blaster' to terrorise the opposition bowlers, but also allowed him to be looked upon as a case study for budding talents across the globe. But, his greatness wasn't derived from his exploits on the field alone. The right-hander's batting genius was backed by a calm and composed demeanour, both on and off the field, which is why he continues to be an adept role model, seven years after his retirement.

  21. People will do anything to secure a win in their favourite battle Royale game and Modern Warfare Warzone is facing problems due to hackers on PC. While this problem would only affect PC gamers in other games, Warzone comes with a cross-play feature that lets console gamers play with PC players as well. However, the game is now flooded with hackers that use aimbots and wallhacks to know the position of every player in the map and automatically aim to get over 50 kills in games. Hackers are able to automatically hit enemy heads, shoot through walls and play without recoil and are not getting any ban in return. © Reddit In our session, out of 6 games, three of them had multiple hackers that ruined the experience for us. Thatâs 50% of our sessions that involved hackers in the game. The problem is that there is no way to report players from within the game and Infinity Ward, the developer behind the game is not actively banning hackers. Even though the developer has banned 70,000 accounts that were using these hacks, the numbers are increasing exponentially. © Activision This form of hacking is only possible on PC due to which console players are now turning off the cross-play feature to avoid these hackers. However, due to the feature turned off, console players are finding fewer sessions as they are now confined to their platform (Xbox or PS4) only and there arenât enough players in every region to fill up these sessions. Hereâs a good example of how these cheats and hacks work in Call of Duty Warzone: Another Day, Another Game with Cheaters. IW, You NEED to disable cross-play with PC until you fix this. from r/CODWarzone Call of Duty fans are now urging developers to implement a better anti-cheat system that actually works and disables cross-play functionality with PC gamers. Since the game is free for everyone, hackers can simply make a new account and continue to cheat in the game. View the full article

Casting and story line was brilliantly done. â Aftab A Khan (@i_affy) April 19, 2020You kept me awake all night last night bro LOVED #Hasmukh Its wicked, funny, dark and such amazing performances! Especially by the supporting cast! 𤪠Love you bro! You ROCKED! And a huge round of applause for @Nikgonsalves 𤩠https://t.co/Iznkr1aX8d â Milap (@zmilap) April 19, 2020Watched #Hasmukh on #Netflix. Compelling dark narrative. @thevirdas does a marvellous job immersing totally into the role. â Sanjeev Chhabra (@chhabs63) April 19, 2020Talking about the show, Vir Das had earlier said, Hasmukh is purely a fictional tale. But every fictional story is founded in some wild imagination. As the writer, thatâs what I have applied here. One can never imagine looking at Amol Palekar on screen and say that he can have a dark side. His on-screen characters are so affable and endearing. Hasmukh is similar.â Since many people have already recommended it, I will give it a shot and watch it tonight. What about you? View the full article
  23. Given how we are stuck in our homes and bored out of our minds, a lot of us have found a weird and convoluted refuge in social media. And we are not just talking about mindlessly scrolling through our social media feeds, and sending unsolicited DMs - we are more active than ever before on social media, posting stuff, tweeting out and participating in challenges. © iStock During such a time, it is imperative that you bring your A-Game on social media, and sound intellectual. And what better way to do that than to sprinkle some really dope and cool-sounding words in your captions and tweets? And the best thing of all, these words are already becoming viral, so expect to get a lot of traction using these. Covidiot © iStock Etymology: Covid + Idiot A covidiot is a moron who just doesnât take the quarantine and the lockdown measures seriously and is, therefore, risking getting infected, and then infecting others with the novel coronavirus. They should be officially declared Public Enemy Number 1. Usage in a sentence: Nitin went out today to buy cigarettes and some alcohol, that too without wearing a mask, proving that he is a total covidiot. Quarantigue © iStock Etymology: Quarantine + Fatigue The mental exhaustion and fatigue that sets in after spending what seems to be an eternity in lockdown. Can also refer to the actual, physical exhaustion, and fatigue people experience, due to working from home, all the while having to do household chores, all by themselves, with no help whatsoever. Usage in a sentence: I had to clean up my room, wipe the floor for the entire house, cook my meals, and wash my clothes, all the while attending numerous conference and video calls for the office. My quarantigue knows no bounds. Covidcation © iStock Etymology: Covid + Vacation The false sense of vacation that some people get, given that all classes and work in some offices have been cancelled. What these people do not realise is the mountain of work awaiting them, when the lockdown is finally lifted. Usage in a sentence: Enjoy your covidcation as much as you can now; be ready to pull a number of all-nighters, when we start working on the project again after the lockdown. Covidanoid/Covinoid © iStock Etymology: Covid + Paranoid Someone who is extremely paranoid about everything when it comes to the coronavirus, and COVID-19. Easily susceptible to rumours that they get through forwarded messages, these are the people whose WhatsApp and Twitter apps should be deactivated for some time. Covidanoids can be a pain to deal with at times. Usage in a sentence: Nilesh looks very suspiciously because a distant cousin of mine, whom I havenât met in over three years has contracted the virus. He fears that I will infect him with the virus if I get close. He is such a covidanoid. Covidcrazy © iStock Etymology: Covid + Crazy These are the panic mongers and conspiracy theorists who believe that everything that is taking place has an ulterior and convoluted reason behind it. Not only do they believe in and forward those ridiculous WhatsApp forwarded messages, they also create messages which are absolutely bonkers. These are also the people who question everything that the government and medical bodies tell us to do because apparently, they are in cahoots with big pharmaceutical companies to make us sick. These are the people who should be labelled Public Enemy Number 2. Usage in a sentence: Atul just sent me a message saying that if we take a hot shower, and clean everything with hard liquor like vodka and whiskey, the coronavirus will die, before infecting us. He truly is covidcrazy. Covismart © iStock Etymology: Covid + Smart Rarest of the bunch, a covismart is someone who, well, is smart. They follow the rules of social distancing, are smart about managing things, do not spread rumours and false news, keep proper hygiene and take all measures to ensure that the contagion is contained, seriously. Usage in a sentence: Varun does not step out of his house unless it is absolutely necessary, and he washes his hands thoroughly every hour. He is being covismart about the situation in hand.

  24. There's so much going on in the world right now - a pandemic, basically the entire world under lockdown, all of us trying to work and survive while the anxiety of being part of a historical event is trying to take over us. In short, it's been a shitty year so far. So sometimes, it's nice to take a break and watch something very calming and aesthetically pleasing so that we can take our minds away from stuff, even if for a little while. Here comes in Studio Ghibli and their wholesome movies. The Japanese animation studio has some of the best movies that will make you feel like you're part of that universe. Here are some of our top picks that can be streamed online right now. 1. Howl's Moving Castle Based in a fictional kingdom where both magic and early 20th-century technology are prevalent with a backdrop of a war with another kingdom, the movie has a very strong anti-war message. Actually, the director - Hayao Miyazaki - made the movie after being outraged about the United States' invasion of Iraq in 2003. There are witches, there's a magical curse, there's a freaking castle that walks, and a talking fire. And, the English dubbed version has Christian Bale voicing the character of Howl. 2. Spirited Away The Oscar-winning movie is about a 10-year-old girl who, while moving to a new neighbourhood, ends up trapped in a world of spirits where her parents have been turned into pigs to be slaughtered later. Now, she has to work for the witch Yubaba and find a way to free herself and her parents and return to the human world. Even though it released in 2001, it is, to this date, the highest-grossing movie in Japan. 3. My Neighbor Totoro The 1988 movie was not only a hit back then but has also garnered a cult following in the years following its release. The movie is about two sisters and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan. The movie's titular character of Totoro has become a cultural icon over the years, and it's even the Studio's mascot. 4. Kiki's Delivery Service The 1989 movie is basically about a 13 years old girl named Kiki, who happens to be a witch and follows the journey of her leaving home for her independence with her pet black cat Jiji. She uses her ability to fly to her advantage and earn a living. The movie came out a year after My Neighbor Totoro and is much loved by the Japanese as well as the international audience to this day. 5. Princess Mononoke Set centuries ago in a Japan where fantasy elements exist, the movie follows a young Prince Ashitaka, who's stuck in a struggle between the gods of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. The movie was released back in 1997 but is still one of the most famous movies by Studio Ghibli. View the full article
