  1. Speaking to Geo.tv, TikTok's biggest stars fear livelihoods and months of hard work wrecked after TikTok ban in Pakistan
  2. In the tug of war for entertainment, smart TVs beat the 6-inch smartphones every single time. Well, OnePlus realised that early on and rolled out premium smart TVs â the Netflix-enabled Q1 series, last year. However, our only itch was its starting price, a whopping Rs 69, 000, truly fit for the premium category. News is, the brand is now all set to turn that around with 3 affordable smart TVs launching on the 2nd of July 2020. Latest OnePlus TVs Will Be Thinner Than OnePlus 8 Starting at just Rs 20,000, the upcoming range of OnePlus TVs is touted to be heavy on specs, easy on the price. This series will include 3 smart TVs of 32-inch, 43-inch and 55-inch screen sizes, respectively. With a 95% screen-to-body ratio, we're pushing the boundaries of your TV experience.

We have to agree that the brand has risen in these testing times and has delivered a technological masterpiece. An Exclusive Live Stream EventWhile the brand has given us a sneak-peek into some features, thereâs a lot that still remains under wraps.

The simple answer being - tune into the live stream event for more details and big-ticket announcements. You can pre-book the OnePlus Smart TVs on Amazon now. View the full article
  3. Indian film stars and cricketers wearing insanely expensive watches isnât exactly anything new. Quirky Patek Phillipes, zany Audemars Piguets, Rolexes with cases made of gold - these have, somehow, become the norm for Bollywood if they want to be taken seriously by Indian horologists. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Having said that, every once in a while, someone, wears something so exquisite, that we just have to take a step back and take a good hard look. This time around, it was Ranveer Singh, who wore a watch so rare and exclusive, that even the 1 per cent-ers in India couldnât buy one. © Instagram/ranveersingh Ranveer was recently spotted outside the Mumbai airport with Deepika Padukone, wearing a rather simplistic and basic outfit. However, with Ranveer being Ranveer, there was bound to be a quirky element with that as well. © Viral Bhayani The light washed denim jeans that Ranveerâs wearing has a belt of sorts thatâs incredibly long, much like the one that Aparshakti wore. The manner the belt hangs out in a quirky manner from the side is quintessentially Ranveer. © Viral Bhayani However, as we said, it was his watch that caught our eye. Given that Ranveer endorses Franck Muller, the Geneva-based watchmakers, seeing wearing a piece from them, shouldnât be that surprising. © Viral Bhayani But this time around, Ranveer was spotted wearing their one of their rarest timepieces. Ranveer is wearing the Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting Watch Number 64716. What makes this watch so exclusive and rare, is the fact that the case, apart from being made of white gold, is also covered in tiny diamonds. Even the numbers on the dial are covered in diamonds. © Viral Bhayani Speaking of the dial, it is again made of precious metal and has a glossy finish to it. The band of the watch is made using finely quilted leather, which gives it an exquisite appeal. As for the technical aspects, it is a classic piece from Franck Mullerâs Yachting series. With a fair number of complications, the watch is a highly coveted collectorâs piece and already has a cult status among ardent horologists. © TraxNYC The reason why we say that even Indiaâs top one per cent couldnât buy one even if they wanted to, is again because of rarity. Some experts say that the watch is worth somewhere in the ballpark of $300,000, which converts to about Rs 2.1 crores. © TraxNYC However, considering how rare the watch actually is, and how difficult it gradually becomes to get your hands on legacy pieces as time flies by, if you were to try and buy this piece today, you would have to shell out at least Rs 2.6 crores. Add to that your regular import duties and taxes, and youâre looking at a figure thatâs ridiculously high. Almost as if it would cost you the Earth, all your bodily fluids, kidneys, lungs, and then some more. If you find someone who is willing to sell you this piece, that is. © TraxNYC Seriously, this just goes on to show that Ranveerâs operating in a different reality altogether. View the full article

  5. The LGBTQ community made a huge leap in their journey towards social recognition and equality in India and got an influential mascot in sprinter and Olympian, Dutee Chand, when she decided to come out and disclose being in a same-*** relationship with a girl from her hometown of Chaka Gopalpur in Odisha. In an interview with The Indian Express, the national record holder in 100-m sprint said, "I have found someone who is my soulmate. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be with whoever they decide they want to be with. I have always supported the rights of those who want to be in a same-*** relationship. It is an individual person's choice.” This made Chand the first and only Indian athlete to reveal her homosexuality and gathered attention from all over the world including the famous American talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres: She's the 100m record holder and the first openly gay sportsperson in India. I guess she knows a thing or two about being first. I'm so proud of her. https://t.co/auoyWY8yvk — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 21, 2019 We caught up with the fearless athlete and spoke about her decision to come out and become a beacon of hope for the rest of the members, especially of the sports fraternity, who are also involved in same-*** relationships but have not mustered enough courage to speak openly about it. 'Initially I was terrified of how people would react to my sexuality but now that it is out in the open, I find myself to be in a really happy place. The fact that big celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres have showed her support for my cause means a lot to me." © Reuters "Ever since I shared my struggle, all my friends and relatives, other than my eldest sister and parents, have been good to me. They said: “Dutee, this is your personal life and you have every right to live it however you want to. We will not interfere with it.” "Ours is a democratic State and people have the authority to live their life however they want to and with whoever they want to." "Times are also changing. Back in the day, rituals suggested that women were not allowed to marry a second time. They were supposed to spend the rest of their lives all alone, as widows had their husbands expired. Now, not only can women marry multiple times but they can do so without being judged, not by the people who matter, at least." "Whenever something new happens, it is always criticised at first." "As far as my career is concerned, I have shown my worth as an athlete time and again. I have passed all their tests and excelled in doing so. I have full faith in the Sports Authority of India and the Athletics Federation of India and know that my sexual preference will have no impact on my relationship with them." © Reuters "I liked her for a really long time and even she liked me but we did nothing about it until the Supreme Court passed Article 377. As soon as the judgement was passed, I went to the girl's parents and asked them if they were open to such a relationship. They said that she was their only daughter and they are willing to do whatever it is that keeps her happy." "It was only after her parents' blessings that I told the world about our relationship." "Just like the Supreme Court decrimilarised same-*** relationships last year, I urge the judicial system to allow same-*** marriage, it would be great for people like us." "I believe in the ritual of marriage and ever since I was a little girl, I have always dreamt of getting married to someone that I love dearly and spend the rest of my life with them. If in the future, the Supreme Court does make same-*** marriage legal, I would forever be thankful to them."
  6. When you are looking to buy a new smartphone, the first thing people ask me is, “How's the camera?” That's a question I have to answer for budget and flagship smartphones. With mobile photography becoming more popular thanks to social media apps like Instagram and Snapchat, users need smartphones that can take great pictures, last long and deliver a smooth experience. Google answered that question with the Pixel 3, however, it really isn't affordable for everyone. Google announced the much more affordable Pixel 3a and 3a XL that delivers the same computational photography advantage as its flagship counterpart. It's got some key differences but overall offers a great value for money. Here's what we think about the new Pixel 3a XL and how our experience has been with the smartphone: Design & Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to the design, the Pixel 3a Xl is very similar to the Pixel 3 in terms of looks but has some key differences. The body is now made of polycarbonate that feels very premium even though it isn't supposed to. The back has the same design as the Pixel 3 with single camera setup, a fingerprint sensor and a small Google logo at the bottom centre. It has the same minimalistic ethos as the Pixel 3 and overall has a very alluring vibe. Since the Pixel 3a is made out of polycarbonate, the device does not support wireless charging. It isn't necessary for the device however we do miss the convenience of charging it wirelessly on our bedside. The phone also has stereo speakers and the bottom audio speaker has now been moved from the chin to the bottom of the phone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla At the front, the display is where the differences come to light as it does not have a notch design as the Pixel 3 XL. There are thick bezels at both top and bottom which gives it the classic Pixel look we've seen earlier on the smaller Pixel 3 and Pixel 2 devices. The display itself is a fullHD+ gOLED panel that is 6” in size. It has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and has an aspect ratio of 18:9. Overall, the experience on the display was extremely satisfying especially when we would watch videos on Youtube and Netflix. In fact, the colours very vivid and the blacker shades were represented well. The viewing angles were also on point, however, were a bit disappointed with the brightness levels. The brightness level is just over 400nits which isn't enough for outdoor settings with bright sunlight. Apart from the brightness level, the display was sharp and overall a great OLED panel. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of other design aspects, the Pixel 3a also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack for people who still like the option of using their own wired headphones. This also means that the Pixel 3a is not water resistant which is not a big deal if you ask me. Our senses are now naturally trained to keep our smartphones away from water and we can live without any water resistance unless you want to pay a premium for it. Camera © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Pixel smartphones are known to offer computational photography that visibly blows the competition out of the water. It uses AI and algorithms to make it easy for the average user to take some phenomenal shots. The camera on the Pixel 3a XL works the same way it does on the Pixel 3. However, it does take a bit longer to process images due to the underpowered chipset when compared to the Pixel 3. The Pixel 3a XL can take some spectacular Portrait shots that were even better than our DSLR in many instances. Pixel 3a XL also comes with Google's Night Sight feature where it takes multiple images with different exposures and contrast levels. Google's algorithm then gives the best shot with unbelievable results. Other camera features such as Top Shot, Photobooth, Playground, Super Res Zoom, Google Lens and more are built right into the app. The Pixel 3a XL has a single 12.2MP Dual-Pixel Sony IMX363 primary camera with an aperture of ƒ/1.8. The camera sensor has a field of view of 76° and 1/2.55" Sensor Size. The primary sensor has autofocus with dual pixel phase detection and optical + electronic image stabilisation. As for the selfie camera, the devices have an 8MP with an aperture of f/2.0. It has a field of view of 84° for wider selfie shots. Google also intruded a new time-lapse mode where you can set your frames to record at various intervals. This essentially will let you record a 20-minute video and condense the final video into 10 seconds. This is a handy feature for people who like to tell visual stories via video. It can be used to show more information or video content for users who love to use Instagram's story feature. We've seen this feature on other smartphones before but it's a first for Pixel devices. Camera samples from Pixel 3a XL: Software © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Pixel 3a runs Android Pie out of the box and will receive an Android Q update later this year. In terms of software, Google is running the same build as Pixel 3 and offers a similar experience. However, the only caveat is that it is slower than the Pixel 3 due to the processor. Having said that, the Pixel 3a XL can handle every feature such as AR navigation, reliable Google Assistant performance and overall offers a smooth pure Android experience. It even comes with Active Edge that basically lets users squeeze the side of the phone to access Google Assistant. Pixel 3a and 3a XL also come with unlimited storage for images at high quality, however, it does not store images of the original quality unless you are subscribed to additional storage on Google Drive. Other useful features such as Digital Wellbeing, Night Light and constant updates make this the best Android experience you can have on an affordable smartphone. Performance The Pixel 3a and 3a XL both come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 670 processor clocked at 2.0GHz and 1.7GHz and has been paired with 4GB of RAM. It's an underpowered chipset when compared to the Pixel 3's Snapdragon 855 processor but in order to offset this difference, Google has optimised the software for Pixel 3a. To be honest, when it came to performing basic tasks such as communication, navigation, internet browsing and emails, the phone did not falter once. In fact, we did not notice any slowdown during our testing period. Having said that, we did notice some underperformance while playing games like PUBG and when it came to processing images. The benchmark tests show the Pixel 3a has a good performance score considering the processor it's being powered by. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There is some improvement when it comes to battery life as the Pixel 3a XL comes with a 3,700 mAh battery. The device lasted us for approximately 14 hours on a single charge and can be fast charged thanks to the supplied Power Delivery or PD charger. In just 15 minutes our review unit would go from 5% to 45% and add an additional 6 hours of battery backup. Having said that, we expect the battery life to improve over time with future updates and remains our only concern in the performance department. The Final Say We live in a country where it gets harder to recommend smartphones because of what it has on offer. The Pixel 3a XL offers the best photography you can find on a smartphone for its price. The Pixel 3A XL is priced in India for Rs 44,999 which is a bit hard to recommend when considering other options in the same price bracket. Having said that, if you look beyond the price you get a great smartphone that delivers amazing photography at a reduced cost. In fact, with the Pixel 3a, Google just proved that great imaging on smartphones is not reserved only for flagship smartphones.
  7. For someone who has developed a knack for shattering records at will, Virat Kohli romped his way to yet another individual milestone as he brought up his 40th hundred in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) on 5th March. Carrying the baton for his side, Kohli led from the front as he hammered the opposition bowlers all around the park during his strokeful innings of 116 runs including 10 fours against Australia in the 2nd ODI in Nagpur. In the process, the Delhi lad became only the second man to reach 40 ODI hundreds after great Sachin Tendulkar who currently leads the list with 49 tons. King Kohli scores his 40th century against Australia in Nagpur. ð¯#INDvAUS https://t.co/7V5ywUDPMl — Twitter Moments India (@MomentsIndia) March 5, 2019 Coming out to bat, with India reeling at 0/1 following the early dismissal of Rohit Sharma, Kohli held the fort at one end as he stitched crucial partnerships with his teammates to stabilise the innings for his side and ensure they managed to post a competitive total of 250 runs. As he reached the 22-run mark, the 30-year-old also reached 9,000 international runs as a captain. He achieved the feat in 159 innings while breaking Ricky Ponting's record that was notched up by the Aussie great in 203 innings. ð¯ Stand up and applaud. The Run Machine brings up his 40th ODI Century ðð What a player #KingKohli ð#INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/9s2ziwh6kR — BCCI (@BCCI) March 5, 2019 Kohli also became the sixth player to score 9,000 runs in international cricket as captain. Graeme Smith (220 innings), MS Dhoni (253), Allan Border (257), Stephen Fleming (272) are the other former captains in the list. Later, Kohli also brought up his 50th ODI fifty and now boasts of over 10,570 runs in the 50-over format with a brilliant average of over 59. #KingKohli Has Completed 9,000 International Runs As Captain ð®ð³ 159 -- Innings* 9000 -- Runs 66.66 -- Average 35 -- ð¯ 4515 -- Test 3879 -- ODI 606 -- T20i#INDvAUS #AUSvIND @imVkohli Congratulations skipper #ViratKohli ðððð pic.twitter.com/cWGLiNBNJ4 — KARTHICK (@KarthickS_31) March 5, 2019 Overall, it was Kohli's 7th ODI hundred against Australia, two less than Tendulkar, who also leads the list of most hundreds by a batsman in India-Australia ODIs. For a man who had a sensational run in 2018 where he scored 11 tons across formats, Kohli appears to be in ominous form this year. Already touted as one of the greats, Kohli has been enjoying a sensational run ever since he took over MS Dhoni as India's captain in 2017. The right-hander has slammed 18 hundreds while leading India in ODI cricket. As many as 24 of his 40 ODI tons have come while chasing - something that proves how efficient he has been under pressure. On a day, when other Indian batsmen failed to get going, Kohli stepped up to the task and aided his side with a brilliant knock. There was no surprise to see 'King Kohli' drawing plaudits on the social media following his majestic innings. Top innings. Another day at work. Century for Virat Kohli. 40 in 224 innings is an unreal stat. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 5, 2019 Virat Kohli moving towards maximum international hundreds... #IndvsAus pic.twitter.com/Jx0TePb3bF — The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) March 5, 2019 Kohli.

It isn't even close for the best ODI batsman ever any more. Kohli wins hands down. — Peter Miller (@TheCricketGeek) March 5, 2019 Sources: Virat Kohli looking to break Sachin's ODI record by early 2020. — Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) March 5, 2019 I mean, Kohli's last 10 hundreds came in his last 25 innings. That is just ridiculous. Otherworldly. — Peter Miller (@TheCricketGeek) March 5, 2019 Number 40 for the King, what a champion. A great innings on this surface by Kohli. #IndvAus pic.twitter.com/GPH9o4uuA0 — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 5, 2019 ODI century No. 40 for Kohli.

  8. We caught up with Chris Pratt recently to talk about his experience filming Lego Movie 2. He had some very interesting things to let us in on.
  9. Robert Horry was in India recently and we spent some time with the 7-time NBA Champion talking about everything under the sun. But, amidst all the fun and games, we also asked him a few hard hitting questions about the state of affairs of basketball in India. © Getty Images Even though we kind of blindsided him with these questions, Robert had some astute advice on how Indians can become better at the sport. Here's a look at what he had to say: What is the best thing about basketball in India? The best thing is the NBA academy and the way they're trying to implement basketball to the youth at an early age. Once you implement basketball and start a grassroot programme it gets the youth more active in the sport and when the youth is more active in the sport, they start to love the sport. If you don't feed them the sport they don't know about the sport, they don't try the sport. This way you get them young, get them to fall in love, and see how competitive the game can be, how fun the game can be and more importantly how it can bring forth a brotherhood, a sisterhood because it's just not a sport for guys, but also a sport for young ladies also. © Getty Images What's the one thing that surprised you with reference to Basketball during your trip to India? I think the one thing is the love and the athletic ability from watching them practice here at the NBA Academy to see how good these guys were and see how young they were. And that's the whole thing. You catch these guys at a young age and are able to teach them the game so they can end up growing with the game in India and maybe one day someone that I just saw can maybe ascend to the NBA. In a cricket-crazy country like India – how can NBA change the focus to basketball or any other sport? I think the best thing to do is to present it to them. Present it to them, let them watch and the thing is you have to let them watch good basketball because. Just think about it. If a cricket match is not a good cricket match, you're not going to watch that. So present it, have some tape delay NBA games here in India so people can get a taste of it. Once you get a taste of it I think you will love it. You will want to go out and play it and the next thing you know it will probably be your favourite sport. It probably won't take over cricket but it will be up there hopefully. © Getty Images What do you think aspiring Indian players need to do to play in the NBA? I think the most important thing is to learn the game. Learn the game, watch tapes of old guys and go out and play the game. There are so many kids who want to watch the game but don't emulate the guys they need to emulate. You see a guy try to do some trickshots and you're like hey slow down. Learn how to shoot a regular shot before you do a trick shot. There are so many things that come into it. You have to be able to pass, dribble, shoot.

After narrating the notorious tale of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar in the first two seasons, and then following it up with an even stronger Season 3 that revolved around his rival Cali cartel, Netflix's popular series 'Narcos' is back with a brand new instalment, 'Narcos: Mexico'. Exclusive footage released by Netflix, ahead of the show's premiere on November 16, identifies the protagonist DEA Agent Camarena and his counterpart Miguel Felix Gallardo, the convicted druglord commonly referred to by his alias as El Padrino ("The Godfather"). The Mexican drug mafia formed the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s and was at the helm of all drug trafficking in the country and the corridors along the Mexico–United States border. “I'm more powerful than any other trafficker in the history of Mexico,” he says in the clip. © Netflix The date-announcement trailer told the story of another merciless cartel as the original 'Narcos' seasons. Michael Pena plays the undercover DEA agent while Rogue One's Diego Luna dons Gallardo's shoes. © Netflix It's understood that the streaming service refuses to call it a sequel to the previous seasons. This comes in the wake of the tragic murder of Carlos Munoz Portal, the location scout for the show, and then a lawsuit which was filed by Escobar's family. © Netflix Will they use the same theme song? Will they show agents Javier Peña and Stephen Murphy again? Gotta wait till November 16 it seems.

  13. After years of stalking aka following the maestro of all things trendy- Virat Kohli, on social media, we know one thing for sure– never expect the ordinary from him. He has more than often stunned us both on and off-the-field! And he isn't about to stop anytime soon. In a series of probably many firsts, Virat Kohli laid another maverick off-the-field when he joined hands with PUMA to turn shoe designer and design a classic sneaker for his fans. View this post on Instagram 100% classic, 100% me! And it's finally here! I'm launching the Basket Classic one8 today. ð It's the very first sneaker that I have designed and it is simple, has a bit of cricket and is perfect for any occasion – just the way I love it! What do you guys think? ð #one8 @PumaIndia @PUMA A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Oct 18, 2018 at 12:17am PDT Often spotted flaunting his love for sneakers, Virat sure knows what he wants. Exploring their PUMA Basket collection, Virat set out to make the most of the opportunity, engaging in long conversations with the designers, adding his unique style to the design and creating a mix of comfort and style that suits him the best. Minimal and stylish, the captain of the Indian cricket team made sure that the sneakers bore more than a few elements inspired by cricket in the design. For instance, the stitched details on the kicks are inspired by the seam on a cricket ball. PUMA Opting for neutral colours that perfectly team up with every outfit, he kept the variants as simple monochromes – black and white! While the translucent outsole of the sneakers has a futuristic look, the leather upper has a retro vibe. That's a classic Virat move, mixing styles to create a unique piece. PUMA Designed by Virat for himself and his fans across, the Basket Classic one8 (available in two different colours) is one that you cannot miss. These trendy kicks are absolutely wardrobe goals for any cricket fanatic – 100% classic, 100% Virat!
  14. Following the official debut of the OnePlus 6 earlier this week, OnePlus also said they've teamed up with Marvel Studios and unveiled an Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 in India. Last year, OnePlus partnered with Star Wars to release a limited edition OnePlus 5T and fans were all over it. © OnePlus The “Karbon Black” phone comes fully coated in what looks like a mix of Kevlar and carbon fibre, though it would've been a lot better if it was built of actual Vibranium (we know that's not possible!) On the back, you'll find the Avengers logo directly under the OnePlus symbol etched in with a gold finish. © OnePlus In addition to all of this, the touches of gold continue onto the device's frame in the form of the traditional OnePlus Alert Slider that is featured on the right side of the smartphone. As one final detail, the limited edition OnePlus 6 will ship with a custom Avengers wallpaper. © OnePlus The phone box sports a lot of new things as well, this includes a new Ironman Case for the device that actually looks like the phone's armor, Infinity Wars stickers and metal collectable. OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers edition comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Rest of the specifications of the smartphone remain the same across all OnePlus 6 variants. Just for a quick recap, it sports a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 20-megapixel secondary lens that enables portrait mode. Also, a 16-megapixel selfie shooter is placed up front. The device is water resistant and has a better screen-to-body ratio thanks to the notch. © OnePlus Just like its predecessor, the OnePlus 6 too supports "Dash Charging". This built-in battery feature is said to be able to give the handset a day's worth of power, in just half an hour. The price of the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition in India has been set at Rs 44,999. It will be available on an open sale at Amazon.in starting May 29. © OnePlus Obviously, because it is a Limited Edition, if you plan to buy one, you'll have to be really quick to get it, otherwise, you'll be left staring at out of stock message on your shopping cart.
  15. Indian cricket team's captain, Virat Kohli and one of Bollywood's most acclaimed actors, Anushka Sharma got married in Tuscany and caused the internet to shut down. Fans and enemies were OBSESSED over the next couple of days while covering the event and going gaga for every minute detail. From flowers to the picturesque location, it was an affair to remember. Fast forward to a chilly Diwali evening, where a quintessential couple of the year, A.K.A Virushka has staged yet another Internet-breaking moment. Here's Virushka arriving at the ceremony... When we dream of an Indian bride, we've always envisioned her to look like Anushka Sharma at her reception... I mean just look at her... The simple sophistication of an Indian bride...in a red Banarasi sari... One more time! The most exquisite of them all. Anushka Sharma is truly a vision of love! Iconic designer Sabyasachi described her as an epitome of elegance in a Banarasi weave sari. Here's why she choose the sari and decided to be the bride of our dreams... OUR DREAMS!! Ok, one last time! Ok. Bye!
  16. I have seen her various films where she stood out with her unique acting, but what made me fall completely in love with Tabu was her acting in 'Maqbool' and 'Cheeni Kum'. Two movies, which according to me, branded her as a powerhouse actress in Bollywood. She doesn't believe in rules and that's what makes her an extraordinary actress. She isn't our normal mainstream heroine and the extravaganza and unnecessary drama doesn't exist in the films she picks. (c) Eros Today, one look at her and you can't help but admire the way her face and eyes express emotions that most actors can't convey with words. Her on-screen persona is so remarkable that you feel moved by her sheer brilliance. Not many know this, but acting didn't happen to her as she was discovered and we thank the stars for that, or we would have missed an extremely gifted person like her. This gem in the industry, who was introduced 16 years ago, is one hell of an artist and no one can say otherwise. MensXP spoke to Tabu and she gave us an insight into her life. Always good to be shot by @prasadnaikstudio Hair n make up @subbu28 styling by @naheedee @karishmashaikhh @prasadnaaik A post shared by Tabu (@tabutiful) on Jun 30, 2017 at 8:25pm PDT How would you describe your journey in the film industry till date? Do you feel some void or that something is missing after all these years? I don't think I could have asked for more having been on this long and fulfilling journey. At times it has been extremely challenging, but always gratifying. I've learned so much and am thankful for all the experiences that I have had. I just wish I had taken more vacations and spend quality time with my friends and family (Laughs!) Success, fame, a huge fan following. What is that one dream you still think you have not fulfilled? Honestly, success, fame and huge fan following were never my dreams, but they came to me unexpectedly. I had never planned to become an actress. But these 'rewards' are things I cherish the most. It's a huge blessing in this lifetime and to be able to be connected to millions of fans and supporters, it's an extraordinary feeling and a phenomenon according to me. I have never been a dream/goal kind of person, but of course there are smaller wishes that I want to fulfil like I want to travel the length and breadth of India by road, I want to trek and would love to do an Everest base camp, I have a big group of friends in Hyderabad that are regular trekkers, but I have still to find the time and courage and dedication to build my stamina to prepare for a trek. But it's something I want to experience, these are a few of my small dreams and goals that I have. One of my best and biggest takeaways from my professional journey has been that I have got to work with some tremendously gifted and talented people. The experience of working with renowned directors like Ang Lee on 'Life of Pi' and working with so many people across nationalities and races, really made me stretch my bandwidth and every time I came back a newer person. I really value such experiences that took me far away from my comfort zone and exposed me to newer avenues. (c) Instagram How would you describe your struggle when you entered the film industry? (Laughs) I never struggled, I was discovered. In fact, I was begged and cajoled and completely convinced to do just one film 'Prem' by Shekhar Kapoor and they promised me that after this one film they would get me enrolled in a university abroad. I was never interested in doing movies, I even frowned upon the idea, because I just wanted to study. You are known to be a perfectionist. So how do you think that affects your work and the people working with you? I want to do things to the best of my ability and would never want to leave things to chance or take it for granted. I know it's really unfair to expect the same from others and now I am mature enough to not expect this from everybody, because everyone has their own method of doing things. When it comes to me, I want to give it my all and never settle/compromise till the time I feel I am convinced with my shot/work. Even fame comes at a price, what price do you think you had to pay? Fame has been the most contradictory element in my life and career. Sometimes it's great while other times it's not. But honestly it feels fantastic; I think it's a huge social phenomenon to be able to reach out to the millions across the world that recognize you for your body of work. I consciously did not seek fame, but now that I have been fortunate enough to have it, I value it and can use it for a greater purpose instead of selfish gains. Your characters are very intense. Be it in 'Fitoor', or 'Haider', do you think these roles resonate with you? I don't know if these roles resonate with me, but at least for a moment, I can identify with these characters emotionally. Be it with 'Fitoor' or 'Haider' I could understand the emotional core of these characters which were so amazing to bring to life and must thank and acknowledge my writers and directors who wrote these roles envisioning me to play them. That's a huge compliment to transmute a character from paper to life and it's the most important part of my profession that I really connect with. It gives you free range to paint them in your colours and give them a little bit of your personality. (c) UTV Motions You look exquisite and refreshing all the time? What's your secret behind it? My secret, when you think about it is fairly simple – making sure I take care of my skin. This is something my mother ingrained in me right from my childhood. I make sure to keep my skin well hydrated and moisturized. A personal favourite is making my own body scrub using sea salt and Vaseline Petroleum Jelly as a pre-bath exfoliator. It works especially well to take care of dry skin on your elbows and knees. Apart from that I make sure to drink enough water, get sleep, exercise, eat well. Besides acting, what are you passionate about? Writing, travelling, trekking, listening to music. I love writing just for me.

  19. Photo courtesy: Malala Fund official Twitter Education and rights activist Malala Yousafzai has urged her fellow Pakistanis to speak up for their rights, as she celebrates her 20th birthday today, July 12 ? which has been declared as ?Malala Day? by the United Nations. In a special message delivered through Geo News, Malala has called on her countrymen and women to pay the utmost importance to education. ?On my birthday today.. this is my message to all Pakistanis: believe in yourself, speak up for your rights, [acquire] education because it is very important for the future of Pakistan. It is only through education you can change the future of your country and take it forward,? she said. ?My message to all parents is, if you can give something [precious] to your children, it is education. Through education they can progress and contribute to their country and family.? Malala also demanded that the government give priority to education. ?I ask the government to spend on education, to fulfill its promise of allocating 4% budget to education. The government must ensure that all children are given the opportunity to acquire education, so that they can make their country proud.? Birthday tributes have poured in for the young Nobel laureate from around the world. In his message on Malala Day, Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif said Malala Yousafzai has set an example of bravery and courage for all women. He said that the struggle of Malala for the promotion of education and elimination of terrorism is a beacon-house, and that she thwarted conspiracies hatched to push the country into darkness and backwardness. Malala has emerged as an ambassador of peace and knowledge all over the world, he added. Ziauddin Yousafzai?, Malala?s father, tweeted picture of an adorable birthday card written by her mother. Last week, Malala announced she would be celebrating her 20th birthday with internally displaced girls from conflict-ridden areas in the Middle East on her Girl Power Trip. Malala, who was shot by Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan terrorists in 2012 in her hometown of Swat, Pakistan, joined Twitter only a few days ago where she informed her followers about her plans. Born on July 12, 1997, Malala rose to fame by authoring a blog as a young student while Swat was under occupation of militants in 2007.
  20. We all know Raghav Meattle from the famous singing platform- ‘The Stage'. Yes, he was one of the six finalists who won everyone's heart with his melodious voice and a powerful stage presence. For Raghav, music was something he pursued as a hobby initially, but he soon turned it into a successful career. And that's not the only thing that impresses so many youngsters about him. Did you know that Raghav is also a runner? Yes, he has been running a lot of races which has now become an important part of his life. Running is that one thing that gives him a happy high, an incomparable feeling, just like his music. It's the only thing that helps him stay focused and pursue his passion by eleminating his self doubts. It's running, that has made him so energetic and that's why he's so lively during his gigs and always a hit amongst his fans. Here's what he had to say about his love for music and running. 1. From Where It All Started Running with the crew. Behind the scenes from a shoot I did today. Something is coming up, stay tuned! @101india @nikerunning #werunmumbai #nrcmumbai #nikerunning A post shared by Raghav Meattle (@raghavmeattle) on May 27, 2017 at 3:32am PDT Raghav started running during his school days when he was a part of his school's sports team. Fitness and running were an essential part of his routine and that's where it all started. Though he got injured and it affected his running, Raghav Meattle never gave up. He met a physiotherapist and over time came over his physical problems. He made running a part of his recovery and now he runs 30-35 kms a week. He has also been a part of many 10k and 5k timed races in Bangalore and Mysore to raise funds. This gives him a feeling of contributing to the society. 2. His Journey As A Musician And As A Runner See you guys at @raastabombay this Sunday night! A post shared by Raghav Meattle (@raghavmeattle) on Jun 2, 2017 at 2:45am PDT Raghav was a member of his college music band in Delhi University. The band, however, never took center stage and he eventually took a job after his graduation. But his entire life changed when he was selected for ‘The Stage's' second season. He knew that it was his calling and he immediately quit his job, relocating to Mumbai, to become a full time musician. He knew his passion was bigger than a 9 to 5 job. That's the time he decided to outrun the normal and do something bigger. Running, on the other hand, has been a constant journey for him which has always helped him take a step closer to his dreams. It's not just a great workout for Raghav but a way to tune out of everything and focus on his music. Running helps him build his stamina and that's why he is always so energetic and a favourite while performing live. The exhilarating feeling he gets from running makes him feel accomplished and gives him the motivation to keep outrunning the normal. 3. His Love For Running And Other Sports The worst days turn into the best ones as soon as you start sweating. Running gives me an unparalleled high and makes me feel like I'm improving everyday.

He also loves to play tennis with friends. But nothing comes close to running. A 40-50 minute session of running gives him a feeling of calmness and achievement which he doesn't get from any other sport. “It's an amazing feeling, just incomparable,” says Raghav. It helps him increase his mental strength and overcome all his psychological barriers. According to him "It's the best full-body workout there is." 4.

Apart from this, running gives him some beautiful moments to spend with his sister who also goes for a run with him. The days when he's running alone he makes sure to listen to his newest tunes and try to improve them. He says, "The first 15 minutes are annoying but slowly you start enjoying it and that's when your mental strength increases." He also told us how it has helped him in his races and how appreciated he feels when people cheer for him. That's one of the best moments of his life that he will always cherish. It's something that gives him the strength to stay focused on his career. 5. What Are His Favourite Spots To Run And What Are His Future Goals Sweating it out before the French Open Final!

  21. We all remember Yuvraj Thakur as a boy next door from the hit TV show 'Hum Se Hai Life'. Beneath this cute and romantic facade, there is a man who is passionate not just about his acting but also running. Running is not just a hobby, but a way of life for him. We talked to the famous Indie star to know what keeps him going and how acting and running inspire him to keep doing great stuff. Here's what he had to say. 1. Running To Feel Liberated Took my first step by your side. Look, how far we have come! Today we run together. I wouldn't ever go ahead of you, because there's nothing ahead. I was born to walk by your side, I was born to run by your side, I was born to live by your side. I didn't know that that this was my only dream. Well, now I know! So I am living my dream, by your side. @dishathakur_ . Tag your dreams! Tag your loved ones. #soulsister #onedream #nikerunning #nrcmumbai A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on Jun 6, 2017 at 2:06am PDT Yuvraj played football in school and that's where he started running - it was a part of his training. With time, as he started acting, his schedule got very hectic and he discovered he barely got time to himself. He started running to give himself space and clear his mind. During those couple of hours he felt so liberated that he made running a part of his life. It's no more a sport for him. He runs to introspect, gain a perspective on life and stop anticipating the future. It helps him to live in the present and feel free of the past. Though his fitness routine includes playing football, mix martial arts, parkour, and calisthenics running is what he enjoys the most as it makes him feel better about himself. As he said, “No matter what happens or where I am I always go for a run.” 2. His Journey As An Actor And Runner Hi Guys, first of all let me just say from the bottom of my heart to all of you who took the time to go for a run yesterday, Thank You!!! I am sorry I couldn't post live stories of my run as my phone got messed up last night.. but I successfully completed my 5k run with #nrcmumbai + 50 other amazing runners!! Regardless of where you are I want you guys to continue sharing your runs using the Nike + Run Club App with me.. cause if you believe in the power of the run.. together we will achieve great things and hopefully inspire many more. #werunmumbai #nrcmumbai #outrunexpectations A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on May 26, 2017 at 10:26am PDT Thakur believes running taught him a lot of important things but the most important learning was to prove himself every time life tossed him a curve ball. He’s seen a lot of ups and down in his acting career but one thing that’s always brought him back stronger is running. It helps him stay grounded when he’s on a high. It makes him cherish life and keep trying to succeed when things aren't going so great. Both acting and running are the two things which help him reflect and become better than before. 2. On Overcoming Hurdles Heard my favourite song. I can't listen to it anymore? A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on May 2, 2017 at 11:29pm PDT His fitness journey has been an interesting one with some hurdles and injuries, but he goes the extra mile and keeps pushing himself. According to him, his biggest hurdle is himself and his thoughts. His physical injuries have taught him to keep moving. He once ran from Lokhandwala to Carter Road in Mumbai when he was angry, in just 1 hour 08 mins. That's approximately 14kms! Not only did it help him release steam but he bettered his personal record. It was a significant step in his journey of self-improvement. 4. The Take-Away Looking up on you. You looking down on me. In this moment, everything is accomplished. You are the sky. I am the weather. I appear and disappear on you. You watched everything that I have done, you watch everything that I do! You will keep watching this hide and seek. I will keep on appearing and disappearing on you, just to let you know that I know, what it's like to be noticed by you. . #yuvwrites #iamtheweather #youarethesky A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on May 21, 2017 at 1:44am PDT Yuvraj believes in not stressing out too much. According to him, life has its own rhythm, so one should relax when their body says so. He also believes in the power of simplicity. But it's not as easy as it looks and requires patience to embrace. That's why, for him, running is not about keeping targets but the feeling of being free. He applies the same belief to his personal and professional life to keep a healthy balance. He lets go of things to enjoy life. Surrendering to that moment makes him feel liberated from everything else. 5. His Idols Listen to it carefully. What sir lee says in here is that empty your mind (thoughtlessness), in nothing you are everything, it's the mind where thought lives, it's the mind where all your ideologies about yourself and life live, he is talking about the nothingness in here, he talks about the timeless, ageless eternal truth with such simple words but the point is, simple is the most difficult thing to achieve. Maybe that's why it took 25 years for me to get a grip on these three words "EMPTY YOUR MIND" . . #yuvwrites #formrlee #theimmortal #apartofme A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on Apr 26, 2017 at 10:21am PDT He is a huge fan of martial art legend, Bruce Lee. His fitness and life philosophies have always inspired Yuvraj and he feels that a part of him is wired to Bruce Lee. As a kid, Thakur also admired Goku's character from Dragon Ball Z. His love and compassion for others and his dedication to his work is what made Yuvraj his fan. 6. Tips For Aspiring Youngsters What's on your mind today! #OOTD #airforce1 #nikesportswear A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on May 3, 2017 at 9:00pm PDT Running is an important part of Thakur's life because it liberates him and he gets to know himself better. He urges everyone to just enjoy running and not think of it as your training. He advises to people remember that there is no competition - It's not about defeating others but about defeating your own weaknesses. 7. His Cool NIKEiD Story Finally! They are home. You can get anything anywhere but you ain't getting NOTHING! because nothing is everywhere and nothing is nowhere. #nikeid #mymagicalshoes #oneandonly #nikerunning #outrunexpectations A post shared by Yuvraj Thakur (@yuv_thehuman) on May 20, 2017 at 4:11am PDT He recently designed a customized NIKEiD shoe, which he thinks is unique and cool because there is no pattern to it. He chose the colour scheme so that no pattern could be made out of it. He even got NOTHING written on his shoes for the same reason. He did this because he believes that everyone is stuck in a pattern these days - Be it a job or a workout routine, everything is done in a particular way. To break this monotony, Yuvraj came up with his unique NIKEiD. When he runs, he doesn't know where he will end up and the same goes with the colours of his shoes. He symbolizes how he wants his life’s journey to be - unpredictable. Inspired by his story and can't get more? Start moving with the Nike + Run Club App or sign up for a weekly session here.

  22. For some godforsaken reason, Dhinchak Pooja is a nation-wide sensation now, all thanks to her latest song 'Selfie Maine Leli Aaj'. She is literally setting the whole internet on fire, because the first thought we had was to burn our phones and laptops after listening to this song. The fact that 'Selfie Maine Leli Aaj' has over 12 million views is beyond me. © Youtube Well, this wasn’t a first, though. She had a few cringe-worthy songs before this one as well, but 'Selfie Maine Leli’ beats them on the cringe scale any day. If you still haven’t listened to that song, here you go, but proceed at your own risk. And, since she’s such a big ‘star’ now, people really want to interview her as well. Here’s a look at one of her exclusive interviews, and if you love to hate her, this one is just for you. Enjoy! Also, it would be hilarious to see her music in a Bollywood movie. Someone make that happen just for the shits and giggles.

  24. OnePlus has partnered with boutique fashion concept store collette, to launch a special edition black version of the OnePlus 3T. The smartphone has been dubbed as the “OnePlus 3T colette edition”. Colette as a store completes 20 years and OnePlus will be hosting a pop-up shop to sell these black variants on March 21st.

The exclusive, colette-engraved black edition of the OnePlus 3T (128 GB) is only available starting at 11:00 am (GMT +1) on March 21 at the colette store at 213 Rue Saint Honoré, 75001 Paris, France.
