  1. We don't know anything about Thor: Love and Thunder right now except for one thing - that it's going to be amazing. And, how do we know that? Because we can trust Taika Waititi to top himself and make the best Marvel Cinematic Universe movie after he gave us the incredible Thor: Ragnarok. Since there's a long way to go for the shooting to even begin for the fourth movie, we actually won't know anything about the plot for well over a year. So, what else can fans do in that much time except for speculating the plot and coming up with theories? Moreover, everyone has some extra time right now to completely geek out, so why not? © Marvel A fan theory about Thor: Love and Thunder not only ties together the entire phase four but also explains how Jane Foster might be able to wield Mjolnir, a hammer that doesn't even exist in the current reality. Basically, a theory from the r/FanTheories subreddit suggests that the movie will probably loosely adapt The Mighty Thor comics storyline where Jane Foster becomes Thor. But, it's not just that, it also ties in The Eternals and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It starts with "In present-day NY, Jane Foster is suffering from breast cancer after she was possessed by The Aether." While the aether was not the reason behind her cancer in the comics, this could be a great way for some continuation because after all, she did have an infinity stone inside of her. © Marvel Then comes the Doctor Strange connection - "A hammer from alternate timeline makes its way to the main universe through the portals opened by Doctor strange during MoM events, it's looking for new wielder and Choose Jane, she picks it up and becomes Mighty Thor." There is a small Guardians of the Galaxy connection since Thor did leave earth with them - "In space, Guardians drop Thor on Vanaheim and left for their own adventure. Thor is looking for lady Sif after she was absent during Ragnarok but he finds out that she is already gone somewhere." Lady Sif's absence was painfully felt in Ragnarok and honestly, it would be great if she came back. © Marvel The best addition to the new movie is obviously Christian Bale and here's a theory on what he could be playing - "Actually Sif and her new friend Beta Ray Bill are investigating about the same alien who was the lone survivor of his race, he is known as Gorr. It is said that Gorr was the one who killed Celestials for revenge.he is so powerful that even Celestials feared him and if he is freed again he will continue to wreak havoc on the universe. Odin feared Gorr himself and that is why he had Hela to protect Asgard." Then, of course, Gorr is freed and ends up meeting Thor and we get to know his backstory - "Years ago when his planet was dying of drought he prayed for rain but no one listened to them instead Celestials came and destroyed it and since then Gorr is on a vengeful mission to wipe anyone against his will." © Marvel This calls for a superhero team-up and Thor, along with Sif, Beta Ray Bill, Valkyrie, and Jane defeat the villain. Lastly, the theory suggests that the movie will end with Sif sacrificing herself and then finally Thor's retirement. Well, that is a compelling theory and honestly, pretty believable as well. But, I'm still holding out hope for Loki's return since it's not a Thor movie without Loki, of course. View the full article
  2. Amitabh Bachchan has always been active on social media and interestingly, he is now also interacting with his fans. Well, owing to the lockdown, celebs do have the time to chill and interact with the fans more often than they used to, thanks to their hectic schedules. So, one of the fans asked him âSir aap kabhi desh ka pm banna chate te?" To which Big B had a funny response as he replied, "arre yaar subah subah shubh shubh bolo" along with a laughing emoji. But, I am wondering how things would be if Big B ever becomes a Prime Minister. © Amitabh Bachchan After his response, many of his Instagram followers went on to comment that they will support him if he ever becomes the Prime Minister and also added that he is the only one who can replace PM Narendra Modi. © Amitabh Bachchan © Amitabh Bachchan Big B has won hearts after he made people nostalgic by sharing a throwback picture from the premiere of his film Sholay. This picture features along with his parents Teji Bachchan and Harivansh Rai Bachchan. The picture also features Big B's wife and Bollywood veteran Jaya Bachchan, who played Big B's love interest in the film. Big B, in his caption, revealed that the picture was clicked in 1975 and also shared that he, along with Vinod Khanna, sat on the floor of the balcony and watched the film till 3 am. Well, itâs like there are too many legends in one frame. View this post on InstagramAt the Premiere of SHOLAY .. 15th August 1975, at the Minerva .. Ma, Babuji, Jaya and a bow tied moi .. how pretty Jaya looks .. This was the 35 mm print at the Premiere .. the 70mm Stereo sound print , first time in India was stuck in Customs.. but after the Premiere got over by midnight, we got news that the 70mm print was out of Customs .. we told Ramesh ji to get it to the Minerva .. it came .. the first Indian film on 70mm Stereo .. and I sat on the floor of the Balcony with Vinod Khanna and finished seeing this amazing result till 3 in the morning ð¥A post shared by (@amitabhbachchan) Fans also resonated with Big Bâs emotions and said that Sholay is one of the cult movies and they even would want to see a film based on the making of Sholay. © Amitabh Bachchan The movie set a trend of bromance, and changed the definition of a quintessential villain and also showed live-action in Bollywood. It was way ahead of its time in many ways and continues to be a top favourite for Big B fans. View the full article
  3. In recent times, if there's one couple that seems to be making the best of the quarantine phase, it has to be Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. Right from conveying a meaningful message during lockdown to doing haircuts at home, these two are just are proof that lockdowns need not necessarily be so bad. View this post on InstagramI thought he must be missing being on the field. Along with the love he gets from millions of fans, he must be especially missing this one particular type of fan too. So I gave him the experience ðððA post shared by (@anushkasharma) The recent video is quite funny and will leave you laughing out loud. The actress is seen shouting 'Chauka Maar Na', a usual dialogue that we would hear in stadiums during a match while the Indian skipper is batting She took to Instagram and captioned it as " I thought he must be missing being on the field. Along with the love he gets from millions of fans, he must be especially missing this one particular type of fan too. So I gave him the experience " View this post on InstagramItâs from our primary care givers - family that we learn how to tread the journey of life, how to walk, how to eat, how to socialize & then face the world. This forms our initial conditioning that has a lasting impact on us. In the world we inhabit today, there is a lot of uncertainty and I'm sure a lot of you have found that solace & sense of familiarity with your families. Stay at home to take care of everyone precious in your lives. And also make the most of these moments ... smile, laugh, share, show affection, clear mis-understandings, develop stronger/healthier bonds, discuss life and dreams and pray for a better tomorrow. We all have been moved deeply, we all have been affected deeply and hopefully we will carry forward these lessons in the days to come. And hopefully, we have all conditioned ourselves to relook at the world we inhabited before all of this happened... P.S. : It was a super close game of Monopoly and the competitive side of everyone was out there. Any guesses who won??A post shared by (@anushkasharma) The couple has been quite active amidst lockdown on their profiles on Instagram.

  4. Growing up in the 2000s meant we were exposed to the best of television content. Be it cartoons, reality shows or even family dramas, our generation got a taste of the best. One such show that fills our heart with happy memories and made us laugh out loud without a miss was Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai. © Hotstar There is no forgetting SoBoâs up-class Maya, adorable daddy-cool Indu, their âmis-fitâ of a daughter-in-law Monisha and of course the Sarabhai bros Sahil and Rosesh with their own set of quirks. Now given that the show is reportedly all set to make a comeback on TV yet again amid the coronavirus lockdown, I personally cannot wait to re-watch these seven iconic episodes from the show. In no particular order, the below sequence is merely a reflection of which Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai episode had had the most impact on my psyche. 1. Dushyantâs Entry © Hotstar Gadget-freak Dushyant or Indu and Mayaâs son-in-law, no matter whatever you want to call this guy, he did bring with him a fresh burst of comedy. His unabashed love for gadgets and the ability to laugh off every failure stole my heart. 2. Mallika Sherawatâs Special Appearance © Hotstar Who can forget Sunehri? Besides you and me, I bet Indu and Sahil havenât been able to forget her either. She came, she saw, she played and then she made a run for it with her prize. 3. The Motherâs Day Episode Ft. Rosesh © Hotstar In all these years of being a fan of this show, if there is one moment thatâs literally carved into my mind, it has to be Roseshâs Motherâs Day special poetry - Momma ka purse, jaise hospital ki pyaari koi nurse Purse mein rakha tissue paper karta hai paseene ka ilaaj Aur lipstick ho jaise, bhooke hotho ka anaj Momma ke purse ka hai makhmali sa sparsh Momma ka purse, momma ka purse. I mean, come on! 4. Monishaâs Sophisticated Avatar © Hotstar I remember this one happened around the end of the first season, but boy was this role reversal cathartic or what! Things got so out of hand at one point, that Monisha succeeded in making Maya uncomfortable. This one was a complete win. 5. Monisha & Sahilâs Flashback Lovestory © Hotstar This came in parts, but even with its hilarity, Monisha and Sahilâs cute flashback love story helped fill so many unknown gaps. Also, it was such a revelation to find out that Monisha is Manisha, after all. 6. Mayaâs Role Reversal As A Middle-Class Woman © Hotstar Again, Mayaâs middle-class avatar is unforgettable. You simply donât forget someone becoming the exact thing they detest the most in life - and in Mayaâs case that would be being middle-class. 7. Kaccha Kelaâs Poetry Episode © Hotstar The only other person in the entire show who could rival Rosesh in his poetry skills was this man. Anirudh aka Kaccha Kelaâs Main Lukkha Hu takes the trophy, hands down. Do you have your own favourites? Let us know! View the full article
  5. Lady Gaga and the World Health Organisation crossover is not something we knew we needed but here we are. She has been doing an incredible job at raising funds during this pandemic and using her platform the best way possible - raising money for all the healthcare workers on the frontlines risking their lives to fight coronavirus. And, along with the millions of dollars raised, WHO and Global Citizen have also announced a virtual concert to take place on April 18th to show support for the health workers. The One World: Together at home event is going to be a grand one, just look at the lineup - Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan and Stevie Wonder. Yes, Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly representing Bollywood during the event and people are very proud of it, of course. That's a weird way to look at it, but okay. This best thing coming out of this stupid rona is Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, and SRK on the same event It doesn't get more surreal I love it â ãã¡rike ð¹ð·ð©ðª (@meriked) April 7, 2020It's going to be great.

  6. Vicky Kaushal has now conclusively proven that he can do anything and make it look charming. Don't believe us? He just posted a video of himself cleaning his ceiling fans with a pocha, and fans are legit swooning. © Vicky Kaushal/Instagram Like everyone else, Vicky is under quarantine, and he's completely dedicated to finishing his household chores, like all of us desi boys out there. Now, there may or may not be an inspiration here, not that we are insinuating anything, but we clearly were very inspired when a certain Miss Kaif had started posting super cute videos of herself doing household chores. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@katrinakaif) View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@katrinakaif) Vicky, however, chose something which is extremely difficult. If there were a contest for household chores, cleaning ceiling fans would surely appear on the final round, because of how cumbersome it is. However, Vicky is making it look like a cakewalk, and he's doing some grade A Shayari while he's at it. © Vicky Kaushal/Instagram Halfway into the video, we get to see Mr Kaushal standing barefoot on the floor, without any stool or elevated platform whatsoever, using his height to his full advantage. He clearly was aware of that too, as was evident from the subject of his Shayari. © Vicky Kaushal/Instagram The verse goes: "Jiska ladka lamba uska bhi bada kaam hai, Pankhe saaf karwalo stool ka kya kaam hai?" Now, it did look like mommy dearest had put him to the task, judging by the playful poetic taunt. Notwithstanding it all, Vicky clearly is used to this, as can be seen in the video.

  7. At a time when weâre down in the dumps, it shouldnât take much to make us feel good. Even this story of Babar Azam being praised for being the 'best T20I batsman in the world' by a 5-year-old fan is enough to make us feel a little better. Babar Azam The hero of millions including 5-year-old Oscar who sent in this... #WeAreSomersetpic.twitter.com/oxOtDaYVQ9 â Somerset Cricket (@SomersetCCC) April 2, 2020But, as one of the people (Daniel Alexander) who replied to tweet said, âBabar Azam is class, on and off the field. #KingBabarâ Itâs his down-to-Earth response that made us respect him a little more. Babarâs tweet goes, "Hey Oscar, thank you so much for such a kind note. I am so proud of you buddy. You are a rockstar. Study hard & play even harder champ! Look forward to meet you. #RiseAndRiseâ Hey Oscar, thank you so much for such a kind note. I am so proud of you buddy. You are a rockstar. Study hard & play even harder champ! Look forward to meet you. #RiseAndRisehttps://t.co/ZKEVVhwM3b â Babar Azam (@babarazam258) April 2, 2020 Irrespective of the whole India-Pakistan rivalry and whatever your personal feelings and beliefs are, itâs important to give credit where creditâs due. The response is impeccable. I mean thatâs exactly how Iâd imagine replying to one of my fans on social media, if I had any that is. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the response, though, is that itâs something Umar Akmal can learn from. I donât think I need to justify myself here. Of course, Umar Akmal needs lessons on how to tweet. Who doesnât remember his infamous 'mother from another brother' tweet? Now, imagine if Babar had passed on some of his wisdom to the younger Akmal sibling. Letâs hope one day in the near future we see Umar Akmal tweeting something similar for one of his fans. (Does he have any?) And while Umarâs learning from Babar, perhaps he can take some tips on how to be the best T20I batsman as well? No hate Umar, weâre all friends here. Peace. Iâm ending with some of the responses people had to Babarâs tweet. Enjoy! Perhaps one of his biggest fans? What a kind soul Babar. And then we have people like Kohli who received the "Spirit of the Cricket Award" for doing all kinds of nuisance on and off the field. Someone like Babar or Kane deserved that award. â (@okaySTFU007) April 2, 2020 Even Oscarâs dad replied: Oscar is going to be so chuffed when he finds out in the morning that you sent him a message I will video his surprised face... cheers...stay well stay safe â Andrew larder2 (@andrewlarder) April 2, 2020 Obviously thereâs someone trying to get a shout out from their favourite cricketers: Bhai appreciate kardainpic.twitter.com/ZjCFPsfDBP â Muhammad sohail (@iamsohail86) April 2, 2020 Some people donât even care about the tweet. They just want a picture of Babar for their phones: Bro can you send me this wallpaper please â Raheelðµð° (@Raheel0194) April 3, 2020 View the full article
  8. When you manage to tear your eyes away from the sheepish smile that plays on his lips, you get the chance to behold Bollywood's most prolific underdog-turned-mega-star, that is Irrfan Khan. With his rugged handsomeness, terrific performances, and earthy, personal charm, Irrfan makes for the perfect prototype to be called the ultimate Bollywood âdark horseâ. © Maddock Films Irrfan has been away from the mainstream acting scene since 2018 when he first announced about suffering from a neuroendocrine tumour. Having battled with cancer for over a year, Irrfan came back to face the camera once again last year for his latest film Angrezi Medium. While many are claiming Angrezi Medium to be Irrfanâs much-awaited comeback film post his fight with cancer, true-blue Irrfan Khan fans would beg to differ. For a true Irrfan Khan fan like myself, Angrezi Medium is more than a comeback film and here is exactly why: 1. Itâs The Most Weâll Get To See Of Him Since The Cancer Detection © Maddock Films Irrfan was last seen in the 2018 road film Karwaan, following which broke the news about him leaving for London to get treated for a brain tumour. Itâs been almost two years since, and now, with Angrezi Medium, I will get to witness this man spill his magic on-screen once again. Ever since the detection of his cancer, Irrfan has stayed away from public appearances, choosing to get treated and recuperate away from the public glare. So, this gives his fans the next best shot at beholding their favourite star up close on the silver screen! 2. It Is A Living Example That We Are Stronger Than The Things Trying To Hold Us Back © Maddock Films I can list a number of reasons why Irrfan Khan is one of the most inspirational Bollywood stars out there. But the one thing that trumps it all, currently, is his spirit. His resilience and dedication put Irrfan in a league of his own. Despite not being completely in the clear, Irrfan shot the film for director Homi Adajania, who swore to not make this film with any other actor. Irrfan came back, kept his promise and finished the shooting before heading back to London to continue his treatment for the shooting wrap-up. 3. It Might Be A While Before He Graces The Silver Screen Again © Maddock Films Letâs get a little realistic. Unless someone has been a survivor themself, or has witnessed a loved one battle with cancer, you and I will never be able to imagine how taxing even the recovery process can be, let alone the treatment itself. And though Irrfan has put on a brave face and finished this latest project, it might be a while before we see him on the silver screen again. Even with a few projects in the pipeline, we cannot be sure when they will see the light of the day. 4. Itâs A Reminder Why We Love Him The Way We Do © Maddock Films I donât know about others, but for me, Angrezi Medium is yet another reminder of why I adore this man and his craft so much. Itâs not about the story (Irrfan chose to do it, of course, the story will be worth it) or the supporting cast (Kareena chose to do this film only because of Irrfan, need I say more?). Itâs the promise to witness my favourite actor do what he does like none other. This gifted actor eats, breathes and lives his craft. He weaves stories and teaches his audience a thing or two with every film. His 30-year long, roller-coaster Bollywood journey makes him unconquerable and a striking beam of hope that there is hope for each one of us. Angrezi Medium is not just Irrfanâs comeback film for me, it is proof that this is what a devoted artist can do when lifeâs challenges are met with dedication and undiluted honesty for oneâs craft.

  9. Donald Trump criticized Academy Awards during his speech at a rally in Colorado.
  10. Sometimes you wake up in the middle of a deeply gratifying dream and wish to drop dead asleep again to resume or finish the storyline that your subconscious mind was playing out. I was invited to London to watch an English Premier League game, and my consciously Manchester United-crazy mind demanded that I squeeze in a visit to Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams, to fulfil a lifelong dream of watching my favourite club play live. And much to the dismay of my boss, thatâs exactly what I did. View this post on InstagramIn need of some #WednesdayMotivation? Why not book a trip to the city of Manchester? ð ð¸: @asinglestepblogA post shared by (@nationalexpress) United were due to play Burnley in an English Premier League encounter (honorary mention to partners Budweiser 0.0, who made my trip possible) on January 23, 2020, having endured an eventfully ill-fated month till that point. Recent losses against Arsenal, Liverpool and (in the cup vs) Manchester City meant that tickets were easily available on manutd.com for this home fixture against a then-bottom table side. Little did we know that the game would end 0-2 in favour of the visitors and would trigger the infamous walkouts that might even continue after the ongoing winter break; but more on that, later. To buy tickets for home matches, follow these steps: - Sign up for a free membership on the website - Use the membership number to sign in - Visit the ticketing section on the website and select the game you want to watch - The blocks coloured in blue will have vacant seats - Upon selecting, the website suggests the best available seat - Among âadult,â âunder 16,â âseniorâ etc, pick the category that you belong to and proceed to pay - Tickets are delivered if booked well in advance, otherwise you can collect them on matchday at the ticket counters with valid ID Note: You can follow a similar process to buy tickets for the stadium tour. Categories include but are not limited to âEnhanced Tourâ and âLegends Tour.â Next step was to find accommodation and stay, hostelworld.com and rome2rio.com always being my go-to websites. A four-hour non-stop bus is the most affordable and time-effective commute. Mine was a 12-pound National Express coach that drops you in the heart of Manchester, near Piccadilly Gardens. The dorm was at walkable distance, in the most hipster-ish neighbourhood on Hilton Street. The ClubI checked in, lit a cigarette and immediately after the first drag, it sank in. I WAS IN FUCKING MANCHESTER! FOR REAL, I WAS GOING TO WATCH A GAME AT OLD TRAFFORD! At a loss for words, my overcome state of mind at this point is best summed up by a fellow Red Devil from USA, Chris Castaneda, who told B/R after visiting OT for the first time in 2015 : âThe buildup is incredibly unnerving, you struggle so much waiting for the moment that you show up at the stadium five hours before the match, when no one else is around, and just take the time to walk around and admire everything about the ground.â © MENSXP/Alshaar After a quick kebab meal (I love eating doner kebabs in Europe), I was advised by the hostel staff to take the tram to Old Trafford. The tram was right next to Piccadilly Gardens. Tickets can be purchased from vending machines. Mine cost £ 2.40. I got off at Trafford Bar station and exited on to Warwick Road, Google Mapped my way down towards the stadium, passed the Old Trafford cricket stadium, bought a retro Eric Cantona scarf, and here I was (exactly five hours ahead of kickoff) â staring at the glass walls of my footballing mecca through the silhouette of the Holy Trinity. One big downside of travelling alone (apart from not having a personal photographer) though is that sometimes when youâre dumbfounded, getting a second opinion becomes a daunting task. Your mind simply goes blank and instincts take over. Some might call it âliving in the moment;â for me it translated into paying a father-son duo three pounds to click pictures of me with replica trophies in front of the stadiumâs main entrance â guilty pleasures; not complaining. © MENSXP/Alshaar By the time I was done collecting my ticket, video calling loved ones back home, indulging in front camera vanity and realising that you should always book the stadium tour in advance, the sun had set and more matchgoers had arrived. A stadium parikrama was followed by joining the crowd in anticipation of the team buses. That would take another hour or so, but I encountered two very interesting young men from Nottingham leaning against the barricades. In his late teens, Joe Roberto, a fellow Man United supporter, was here for the first time with his friend Antonio, who is half Italian and is more interested in the Serie A than the EPL. The duo was fascinated by my work that takes me around the world (very humbly; you can read about my trips to Russia , Italy , Vietnam , France etc and decide for yourself), but more so because they were both considering applying for police jobs given the high crime rate in their county. © MENSXP/Alshaar So far, the day had only been about my dreams and my ambitions, but this conversation gave me a window inside the lives of the actual people living in this part of the United Kingdom. Thereâs sport, thereâs religion; of course money matters; and then, thereâs a growing sense of national pride, which one might not be unfamiliar with, irrespective of your current coordinates. The light-hearted banter, nonetheless, very much continued with Joe and I outnumbering Antonio. But the team buses had now arrived and the starting XI on the day would set the tone for the impending doom that awaited United and its frustrated fanbase, on the pitch. View this post on Instagramð´ And in the red corner... #MUFCA post shared by (@manchesterunited) Up in Block N42 of the Sir Alex Ferguson stand, a few flights of stairs, a pint of beer and half an hour later, the chatter was about Mason Greenwood not starting, Phil Jones replacing an injured Victor Lindelof, and Andreas Pereira being given yet another shot at the #10 role. The teams came out and bitterly honest words from a loyal United fan Steven Narloch, which I had read online in his Old Trafford testimony, flashed across my mind: âExit off the tram, see those huge white arches as I walk up Warwick Road, enter the ground, climb up a few flights of stairs, find my seat, and then do something that always baffles me; clap out the teams as they emerge from the tunnel, as if youâre thanking the highly paid people playing for the team of your choice just for turning up.â © MENSXP/Alshaar But despite a continuously intensifying grudge against how the club is being run, fans warmly welcomed the players onto the pitch. The game got off to a yawn-inducing start and all the frustration from watching United play on TV in the last few years started coming back to me. To make matters worse, the hosts went a goal behind by the 39th minute, after Chris Wood headed a free kick past David De Gea. Nothing much changed in the second half and the 56th minute saw Burnley double their lead this time via Jay Rodriguez. My dream debut in Old Trafford started feeling more and more anticlimactic. But we hang on till Fergie time, donât we? Turns out, we donât because a) the tram gets super cramped if you leave late b) the commitment of the current lot doesnât live up to the indomitable spirit of Sir Alex Fergusonâs legendary United sides. As I held back my tears and exited defeated, around the 80th minute mark, the turnout outside was astoundingly greater than what was left behind in the stadium. We would later learn that this was one of the most infamous walkouts in the recent history of the club and fans have in fact made a tradition of it since then. Most of us have had enough; and itâs not just about this one loss. The way the club has been run since the Glazer takeover is appalling â from transfers and wages to ownership and fund allocation. Sir Alex Ferguson had preserved the old guard, but since his departure in 2013, the widening cracks at Old Trafford have now become full-sized craters. The big quandary is that the Glazer family borrowed a load of money to buy Manchester United in 2004 and shifted debts to the tunes of a billion dollars within 15 years onto the club. Misery is compounded by United announcing record high revenues in the 2010s, which has not really translated into on-pitch success â raising glaring doubts about the ownersâ vision for a club with arguably the richest history in the PL. © MENSXP/Alshaar Gab Marcotti writes for ESPN: âThere's something doubly infuriating in knowing that even while you're suffering at your team's underachievement, the guys who own it and run it continue to cackle all the way to the bank. It's not that they don't necessarily care -- maybe they do, maybe they're fans too; they never speak, so we don't know -- it's just that you're left with the feeling that, however much it pains them to see United struggle on the pitch, when they put on their businessman hats, all that pain magically melts away.â Depressed and feeling an existential sense of defeat, I took the tram back and my day ended in complete contrast to how it had begun. The club that I grew up watching dominate all of Europe has been reduced to a laughing stock and distressingly because of non-footballing reasons. The cityI woke up early next morning to typically gloomy Manchester skies. A septuagenarian gent was making breakfast â atypical of the most such lodgings â a recipe for some interesting conversation. Michael Celle Clarke had spent his young years in Manchester and his rendezvous with the city had stayed with him. Over a cuppa, he shared stories that involved women, odd jobs and finances. Now settled, with grandchildren and great grandchildren, he still finds excuses to visit Manchester, âthe city that has seen so much and has given people so much.â © MENSXP/Alshaar So, what exactly is so special about this city? One of the better ways to find out was to sign up for a walking tour. Most such offerings are usually free â something that I absolutely love about European cities. The reception desk was handing out brochures for this one called the Free Manchester Walking Tour, which starts at 11 am from the Alan Turing Memorial in Sackville Park. On my way to the meeting point, I encountered this tiny, funny-named eatery called Pottyâs Kitchen, where a bunch of local construction workers were walking in and out of. Who knew you could get a fabulous full English breakfast for less than five pounds, with a bunch of pescetarian and vegan options. Quick note: having proper meals helps survive the cityâs windy weather, which suddenly started approaching zero-ish temperatures that morning.

Aziz Ahammout from Lille was here for the previous nightâs game too, and has grown up supporting United from across borders like yours truly. Leeds-born Charlie Tatman also follows football and had even been to India (he fortuitously ended up playing a British officer in Aamir Khanâs Mangal Pandey: The Rising on the trip), before settling down with his wife and a set of twins. Czech student Laura, who resides in Poland currently, had been flatmates with Indians and of course proclaimed her love for curry with me. The three-hour tour began with a brief timeline of Manchester, through its multiple eras: of the Romans christening it Mamucium; of canals enabling it to become a global textile hub; of the bombing during the Second World War; of the abandonment of the textile mills and the subsequent rise of an underground music culture â notable Manchester musicians include The Smiths, The Verve, Oasis, The Red Army, Van der Graaf Generator among numerous others. Today, Manchester is the second most populous metropolitan area in the United Kingdom with more than three million people. The city bears unique distinctions for establishing a university in as early as the 1820s, producing around 25 Nobel laureates and a host of artists. Alan Turing, whose statue we met at, though remains the most controversially timeless figure. View this post on InstagramReminiscing about the Parade and our Deep Space Pride: A Future World of Equality theme at this year's Manchester Pride Festival! The Parade was by far the biggest to ever walk the streets of Manchester and we cannot thank you enough for coming to support the community, whether you walked with us in the Parade or encouraged us from the crowd! ðð And can we just talk about some of these outfits?! Incredible! #MPFestival2019A post shared by (@manchesterpride) His genius, biographed in Benedict Cumberbatchâs (another University of Manchester graduate) Imitation Games, lies in being the father of modern computing. Even more relevant is his life as one of the first openly gay public figures in the history of the Western world. Despite playing a crucial role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to defeat the Nazis in many crucial engagements, Turing was prosecuted under Victorian anti-homosexuality laws and is said to have not received enough respect before a premature death (allegedly suicide), at the age of 41. After widespread internet campaigns, he was retrospectively pardoned in 2013 and even features on the new £50 note now. Turing remains an accurate representation of Manchesterâs contribution to liberalism through the ages. Apart from housing the countryâs oldest public library (since 1652), it has also been at the centre of labour right activism in the 1850s, which eventually led to the repeal of the infamous Corn Laws; it has been home to remarkable feminist movements in the 20th century; and it has constantly rallied behind free trade, pacifism and the separation of church and state. In fact, even great men like Abraham Lincoln have written to the âworking men of Manchesterâ for their anti-slavery stance.

Here are some of our best ones - which one is your favourite?A post shared by (@officialuom) After walking past the university, the Royal Exchange Theatre, the Town Hall, the Bridgewater Hall, the Rochdale Canal and the library, we finally ended up at the Exchange Square. It was here where, according to our guide Mike, the latest, most modern, era of Manchester was born. A bomb explosion (planted by Irish right-wing militants during the Euro Cup â96; Manchester was one of the host countries) caused devastating and largely irreversible damage, estimated by insurers at £700 million (equivalent to £1.3 billion in 2019). The detonation, according to locals, ripped the heart out of the city centre but remarkably no-one was killed. Contrastingly, the blast has been viewed by some as a 'catalyst' for starting the city's mass regeneration by attracting hundreds of millions worth of investment and resulting in above national average economic growth in the 20 years following the bombing. Manchester received about £583 million in private and public funding towards its regeneration that completely transformed the business sector, the growth of which could have otherwise been much slower. At the 2002 Commonwealth Games, Manchester played proud host and set a worldwide example on how to get back on oneâs feet.

Once Mike left to resume his dayâs routine, we ended up at Sinclairâs Oyester Bar, after a visit to the nearby National Football Museum. The rustic pub is located in one of the oldest buildings in the city, The Shambles. Usage of phones/electronics is strictly banned inside; an attendant is on the vigil at all times. But the upside â besides getting hammered for a mere £15 â is that you tend to initiate conversations with strangers. Manchester serves up to be the perfect city for this kind of socialising, especially if youâre a United fan. Aziz and I ended up befriending almost each table adjacent to ours despite heated debates over Ole Gunnar Solskjærâs future as the boss. Most of these men and women were locals, ranging from ages between 20 and 70. My acquaintance with the city, from two decades of supporting United, was validated by the open arms that the locals offered towards my devotion. It was at this point that I realised what knits the bond between the club and its overseas fans. © MENSXP/Alshaar My girlfriend, a distant observer of the sport, often asks why I donât support another club since Manchester United have been shit most of the 2010s? I couldnât offer a convincing response before visiting Manchester, but I can almost physically feel my connect with the city now. Itâs almost like a home away from home, and in its core value system, also resonates with my most fundamental beliefs in life. Thereâs another club in the city and why I donât support them would require another article. But as I munched on my last kebab before taking off for India, and made peace with the clubâs fall from grace, the city, like few others, didnât make me feel alone as a solo traveller anymore â and despite the heartbreaking recent performances of Manchester United, ensured that I return one day regardless. Although more new signings will help. View the full article
  11. In a country where cricket is considered to be a religion, India equally celebrates its cricketers like demigods. Garnering an unmatched public interest, many cricketers, over the years, including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli consistently enjoy the limelight. But, while the cricketing icons continue to hog the spotlight, one woman has carved her own niche in the country's beloved sport. For someone who once aspired to be a graphic designer, Myanti Langer has undeniably come a long way to establish herself as one of the most recognisable faces in a sport that continues to be dominated by men. Owing to her unique insights, a great understanding of the game and exceptional analysis, the 34-year-old has managed to create her own fanbase in cricket-crazy India. View this post on InstagramBack in the habit ð #cricketlive #cricketloveA post shared by (@mayantilanger_b) While her ability to analyse the gentleman's game on television has earned her plaudits over the years, Mayanti's 'no-nonsense' approach to set the trolls straight on social media has further struck a chord with cricket fans. For an independent woman who has achieved success and fame on the back of relentless hard work, Mayanti is often targetted for her husband Stuart Binny's brief stint with Team India. Whether her hubby scores a hundred or gets out for a duck, social media trolls just won't let the sports presenter catch a break. Even her normal posts, that has got nothing to do with Stuart, end up garnering baseless comparisons on social media platforms. In the latest case, Mayanti and her husband were once again targeted by a troll who eventually learned a key lesson. Itâs a rather colourful life in our studio ?? @StarSportsIndia #cricketlive #NZvsIND #firevsice pic.twitter.com/ys3pgzPdLS â Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) February 4, 2020 Taking to Twitter, Mayanti shared a photo of herself where she was seen striking a pose inside what looked like a studio. "Itâs a rather colourful life in our studio," she tweeted. While many liked her picture in the tweet, a cricket fan posted with a query: "Where is Stuart Binny nowadays???". Where is Stuart Binny nowadays ..??? â Shafqat Yousuf (@shafqaty6) February 4, 2020 In response to the question, another fan joined in and suggested that: "He is helping her in carrying her baggage". While Mayanti generally refrains from engaging with such trolls, she made this one an exception to shut the troll down. I can carry my own baggage thank you very much ?? heâs busy living his life, playing cricket, just being awesome in general, and not passing comments on people he doesnât know ?? â Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) February 4, 2020 In what turned out to be a befitting reply, Mayanti didn't just step up for her husband, but eventually managed to shut the troll for good. "I can carry my own baggage thank you very much heâs busy living his life, playing cricket, just being awesome in general, and not passing comments on people he doesnât know," she replied.

  12. Itâs no secret that a lot of our B-Town celebs are ardent fans of some of the most popular cartoons out there. However, the fan following that Pokemon seems to enjoy, be it with us or celebs, is something that no other anime or cartoon has witnessed. © Viral Bhayani Akshay Kumar, who is normally seen in some of the most basic, but classy sneakers one can buy, seems to have finally given in to the temptation of going a little bonkers with quirky footwear, for he was recently spotted wearing a pair of black trainers, that looked like they were straight out of the Japanese Anime series that we all have grown so fond of. © Viral Bhayani First, though, letâs get to his outfit. Akshay is wearing a rather simple and understated black sweatshirt, which actually, works well with the finely checkered joggers that he is wearing. The joggers themselves are actually quite dope, thanks to the mix of the patterns around the knees, and the two zipped pockets that they have. © Viral Bhayani This is actually somewhat unusual for Akshay, who normally tends to stay away from such pieces and prefers wearing basic cargos, or jumpsuits. Well, weâre glad that heâs switching things up a bit and experimenting. © Viral Bhayani Now, comes the pièce de résistance of the ensemble, the black loafers that Akshayâs wearing. They are as zany as they are exquisite. Akshay is seen here wearing the Men's Black Monster Eyes Suede Loafers from Fendi, an Italian luxury fashion brand, which primarily deals in leather and faux pieces. © Fendi The yellow eyes that we see here are a classic Fendi design and are called the Bugs Eye motif. The pieces that these eyes are featured on, are normally labelled under Monster Eyes. The eyes themselves seem to have been inspired by Pokemon. The eyes do look like an evil Pokemon, don't they? © Viral Bhayani To add even more to the âmonsterâ theme, Fendi has added some spikes at the counter or the back of the loafers. Sure, these spikes are small and arenât that outrageous. However, they are quite zany and give the loafers a rather unique dimension. Thatâs actually quite a nice way to amp up a basic and simplistic outfit. © Fendi For someone who prefers functionality and comfort over aesthetics, Akshay sure knows how to surprise people around him. Take a bow, man, seriously, thatâs one heck of a way to make a style statement. View the full article
  13. A few years ago, Shubman Gill was being looked upon as a budding batsman who could potentially realise his dreams of playing for the Indian cricket team. And, by the time India clinched the 2018 U-19 World Cup trophy, Gill, who was eventually adjudged the 'Player of the Tournament', was hailed as a key ingredient to his team's success in the tournament. Upon his success in the U-19 World Cup, many wondered if he had the temperament of repeating his heroics while playing with proven masters of the game. But, Gill, since then, continues to dish out one brilliant performance after another, bolstering his case for selection in the national team. © Twitter/@IPL From turning heads in the Indian Premier League (IPL), earning a national call-up to raking in runs on the domestic circuit, the 20-year-old, in the past year or so, remains one of the most consistent performers in Indian cricket. His consistency in batting and the temperament of a proven batsman has allowed him to capture the imagination of cricket fans. When will @KKRiders make @RealShubmanGill the captain ? #AskSrk â Vivek Subramaniam (@viveks1996) January 22, 2020 And, that's probably why a cricket fan ended up asking Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) co-owner Shah Rukh Khan as to when his franchise will make the young Gill the captain of their team. "When will @KKRiders make @RealShubmanGill the captain?," the fan asked on Twitter. As soon as KKR makes you the Head Coach my friend. https://t.co/1SSCwWLS8E â Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) January 22, 2020 The Bollywood superstar has been vocal about his admiration for Gill in the past, but he came up with a witty response to the query of the fan in his recent interaction, a candid Q&A, on Twitter. Responding to the question in his own uncanny manner, 'King Khan' wrote: "As soon as KKR makes you the Head Coach my friend". As soon as Shah Rukh posted his response, netizens began sharing their own views on the hilarious banter between the Bollywood actor and the poor fan. #SavageReplies ??@Bazmccullum #AskSRK pic.twitter.com/UeDgmSSgCq â KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) January 22, 2020 ??????

  14. Kareena Kapoor irked by fan pestering her for selfiesKareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Taimur Ali Khan have a colossal fan base comprising several hyped up fans. And while the super famous trio entertain to the requests of fans more often than not, the hyped up devotees do tend to cross the line quite frequently which results in the A-listers getting infuriated. Addressing one such incident, a reporter for the Deccan Chronicle spoke about a female fan, who after getting a selfie urged for more upon her dissatisfaction with the first one. “That lady came in for a picture. Then she again stopped Kareena for another picture. Now Kareena had been stopped twice for selfies. It is not that that lady was taking pictures when Kareena was on the move but had to be stopped. So, when she stopped Kareena for the third time, it wasn’t just Kareena but everyone around her who got upset with the fan and asked her to vamoose,” he said.
  15. A fan reveals her experiences with Adele and Harry StylesOn Adele's and Harry Styles vacation, the pair not only enjoyed themselves, but made the day of a couple of fans who dropped in on them by chance. Lexi Larson was the lucky 19-year-old from Massachusetts, who got the surprise of her lifetime in Anguilla. When the young girl walked towards Blanchards Restaurant and Beach Shack for dinner on January 3, she was mesmerised seeing Harry Styles dining at the table nearby, however the surprise got even better after Adele walked in. The girl reiterated her experience to PEOPLE, stating, “A few minutes later, Adele came over and sat down next to me and my friend and was like, ‘So what can I do for you girls?'” She went on to say, “We were so excited. We were talking to her for a little while, and then she got Harry Styles to come over and sit with us also. We took a picture with Harry, and we talked to them for 15 minutes probably.” The young fan, who is a student of psychology at the Elton University stated that they all “talked about life and college and what me and my friend wanted to do.” “They were more asking us questions,” she revealed. “It was a really positive experience. It was really cool.” Larson revealed that at first her friends and she barely recognized Adele due to her slimmer frame and chiseled features. “She said she lost something like 100 pounds, and that it’s such a crazy positive experience,” she says. “She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident.” Larson was able to mark her luckiest day with a picture with Harry Styles, however Adele had to decline the request because she was with her young son and she didn't want the extensive media attention her way, for the sake of her son. “She said no because she didn’t want a lot of paparazzi at the moment or anything to get too crazy with her kid,” Larson recalled.

  16. Bollywood’s emerging queen Sara Ali Khan’s fan left all in shock when he crossed the limits and kissed the hand of the actress. The Simmba actress, who returned to the gym following Maldives visit, was asked for a photoshoot by the paparazzi where one of her fans requested for a handshake. When Sara extended her hand, the man kissed her, leaving the actor in extreme shock. The security guards of Sara threw the man away and retreated the actress's hand. The incident took place after Aaj Kal actor posed for paparazzi following her Pilates session. Sara Ali Khan returned to gym to shed the extra weight she gained during her vacations in Maldives. The actress returned to India after vacationing in Maldives with brother Ibrahim and mother Amrita Singh last week. On the work front, Sara will be seen alongside former beau Kartik Aaryan in Aaj Kal. The film will hit the cinemas on February 14, 2019.
  17. Superstar Mahira Khan on Wednesday sent New Year greetings to her millions of her fans across the globe. Taking to Twitter, the actor prayed for love , joy and tolerance "especially for those whose start and end of the year has remained the same - dark and displaced". Some of the fans insisted for a question and answer (Q & A) session on the beginning of New Year and the actor obliged. During the #AskMahira session, the Raees star responded to multiple questions that ranged from her acting career to what meal she loved to savour the most and to travel destinations she adored. A Twitter user Shahbaz Ali Ask her "Don't you think you should get married again?". "Will do when i feel like doing it," she replied with an Upside-Down Face emoji.
  18. Anupam Kher is one of the few names that have made it big even beyond the Indian subcontinent and he often shares videos of his fans from the foreign lands. This time, Anupam took to Twitter to share a video of a female fan from Senegal. Kher was in New Yorkâs Bellevue Hospital for a shoot for the US TV show New Amsterdam where he met Ayesha and was touched by her warm gestures as a fan.

Interestingly, Ayesha was fluent with her Hindi and had a better command over the language than most of the millennials in our country. People on Twitter were impressed with her fluent Hindi and appreciated the actor for putting the video on social media. One of the users wrote, âLet's take a moment and appreciate her command on the language that is totally alien to her. That too by just watching Hindi movies.

  19. Arguably one of the best cricketers in his playing days, Yuvraj Singh aided Team India on the international stage for almost two decades. While his explosive batting added teeth to the Indian middle-order, his commitment to the game and happy-go-lucky personality continues to make him a fan favourite. After 25yrs in cricket Ive decided to move on. Cricket has given me everythin I have.ThankU 4being a part of this journey.This game taught me how to fight,how to fall,to dust off,to get up again n move forward. It has been a lovely journey.

Currently plying his trade with Maratha Arabians in the Abu Dhabi T10 League, Yuvi has been busy playing a key role in his team's aspirations for the all-important title. But, the star cricketer, as much as his batting display, has garnered plaudits for his light-hearted moments with the Maratha Arabians teammates. Following Arabians' recent win over Team Abu Dhabi, Yuvi 'the prankster' was seen enticing cricket fans after making his teammate Chadwick Walton speak in Punjabi.

The former Indian cricketer captioned the video as, "Nice punjabi bro @chadwick59. oh chal yaar chaliye". The hilarious video didn't just strike a chord with cricket fans, but also seemed to evoke some response from Indian cricketers including the likes of Suresh Raina and Praveen Kumar. Responding to Yuvi's post, while Raina couldn't contain his laughter, Kumar wrote, "Hahaha.....jatt power".

  21. Arguably one of the greatest captains of England, Michael Vaughan, long after retirement, continues to garner great public interest over his insightful match analysis and unmatched knowledge of the gentleman's game. But, every now and then, the former England cricketer's brutally honest comments often draw criticism for fans. And, lately, Vaughan seems to have found a way to ruffle the feathers of Indian cricket fans. His comments on Indian pitches during the Test series against South Africa drew the ire of cricket fans in the country. And, on 14th November, Vaughan's tweet on the Indore pitch, where India and Bangladesh are currently playing the 1st Test, once again had the social media buzzing. This Test Match pitch in India is a belter .... #Justsaying #INDvBAN — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) November 14, 2019 Taking to Twitter, Vaughan gave his opinion about the Indore pitch, calling it a "belter". "This Test Match pitch in India is a belter....#Justsaying #INDvBAN," he tweeted. Vaughan was probably lauding the ground staff for preparing a competitive, fast-bowling pitch at the Holkar Cricket Stadium which explains why Bangladesh were bundled out for a mere 150 runs as the seam-bowling trio of Mohammed Shami (3-27), Ishant Sharma (2-20) and Umesh Yadav (2-47) made merry in the first innings. Why because it's green and represents a seamer instead of a turner? Expand your mind Vaughn, not every wicket has to represent a white mans pitch.. diverse wickets make test cricket interesting @nikkrishnan #INDvBAN — Anks (@anks1606) November 14, 2019 But, despite Vaughan's intentions, an Indian fan thought the former England captain was being sarcastic while taking a dig at the country's fondness of preparing spin-friendly wickets. In response to Vaughan's tweet, the fan wrote: "Why because it's green and represents a seamer instead of a turner? Expand your mind Vaughn, not every wicket has to represent a white mans pitch.. diverse wickets make test cricket interesting". White mans pitch !!!!!!!! What a strange comment .... Do you not see the diverse nature of the England Cricket team these days !!??? #OnOn https://t.co/cuT67z22t1 — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) November 14, 2019 Not the one to back down from a fight, Vaughan wasted no time in scripting his response. "White mans pitch !!!!!!!! What a strange comment....Do you not see the diverse nature of the England Cricket team these days!!??? #OnOn," Vaughan responded. Have seen ur tweets re a particular type of wicket that apparently gives credence in the eyes of aussies and the English.. we Indians enjoy the green decks england and SA provide.. but also enjoy the dry turners we get in ind.. diversity is what makes test cricket great! Embrace — Anks (@anks1606) November 14, 2019 Vaughan's response further drew a retort from the Indian fan who explained his stance while urging the England great to embrace "dry turners" as much as the green surfaces in cricket. "Have seen ur tweets re a particular type of wicket that apparently gives credence in the eyes of aussies and the English.. we Indians enjoy the green decks england and SA provide.. but also enjoy the dry turners we get in ind.. diversity is what makes test cricket great! Embrace," the Indian fan tweeted back.
