  3. After the immense popularity of the famous 'Rasode Mein Kaun Tha' scene among people on social media, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya makers brought a season 2 of the hit-television show. The producers announced a second season after a parody video by singer-music composer Yashraj Mukhate featuring one of the scenes that went viral. Recently, the makers of the show, in a new promo video, revealed that the iconic character Kokilaben, played by Rupal Patel, will be recreating the 'Rasode Mein Kaun Tha' scene all over again. Well, if not for anyone else, it is definitely a good news for all the meme makers. The promo video opens with a fuming Kokilaben standing in the middle of the living room and calling for Gopi Bahu (Devoleena Bhattacharjee). Soon, all the members of the household also gather in the living room. She asks all of them, "prasad kisne banaya? (who prepared the prasad)" Sneha Jain, who plays the house help named Gehna, claims to have made the prasad. Kokila then asks her if she has put pure ghee, jaggery, coconut milk, poha, cardamom, and egg in the prasad. Gehna says yes for all the ingredients except the egg. Kokilaben tells everyone that an egg has been found in the prasad. Kokila then, in her usual sassy style, asks in a loud voice, "Gehna jab rasode se bahar gai thi to rasode mein kaun tha." Check out the video here: View this post on Instagram The post garnered mixed responses on social media.

Talking about her return on the show, Devoleena had earlier said in an interview, "It is like continuing your own brand just like superstars Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar do in their films respectively.

  6. For a team that began their campaign with a defeat, Mumbai Indians (MI) are looking really good in their Indian Premier League (IPL) title defence this year. The Rohit Sharma-led side is currently on top of the table, seemingly confident in a bid to grab their fifth IPL title. While the team has clicked as a unit, their star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has had a pretty average tournament, so far. The right-hander has amassed just 224 runs in 11 matches. Though Mumbai, given their brilliant run, aren't really complaining, Hardik finally came to the party in their last game against Rajasthan Royals. © Twitter/@IPL The 27-year-old played a whirlwind of a knock that saw him smashing two fours and seven sixes en route to a 21-ball unbeaten 60. His batting masterpiece was critical to Mumbai posting a competitive total of 195 runs. Even as Mumbai couldn't win the match, Hardik finding his form was undeniably a silver lining for them. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/yzUS1bWh7F — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) October 25, 2020 The Mumbai all-rounder's carnage at Abu Dhabi earned him plaudits from fans and pundits alike. But, apart from his batting, Hardik also drew serious reactions for taking a knee during Mumbai's innings to showcase his support for 'Black Lives Matter' campaign. The Indian cricketer further shared the photo on social media following which fans didn't really seem impressed. Yeah Black Lives Matter. But I'll marry a White pic.twitter.com/MxWoAL2Ccr — A1mit 🇮🇳 (@A1mit) October 26, 2020Iski wife gori hai koi isse pucho vo matter karti hai ya nhi...? — SAFFRONIST/ Facts(Shashank) Stan Acc (@DESI_INDIAN98) October 26, 2020Before this match Pandya had played 10 games in this IPL in which he batted poorly. He didn't do this gesture in those 10 games. He was waiting for one fine performance because Black lives matter only if Pandya plays well. What if he hadn't scored in this game too? — THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) October 26, 2020Yes Hardik Pandya will support Black Lives matter but when comes to own country he will blame Ambedkar for reservations.

  11. The year 2020 has been nothing less than a nightmare as it is giving us all one blow after another. In yet another unfortunate turn of events, former Team India captain Kapil Dev suffered a massive heart attack on Friday morning, following which he was immediately hospitalised at the Fortis Escort Hospital in Delhi. © Reuters The 62-year-old legendary cricketer underwent angioplasty and is said to be in a stable condition now, as per reports. Fortis Escorts Hospital issued a press release which said, ''Former Indian Cricket captain Kapil Dev, Age 62 years, came to Fortis Escorts Heart Institute (Okhla Road) emergency department at 1:00 am on 23rd October with a complaint of chest pain. He was evaluated and an emergency coronary Angioplasty was performed by Dr Atul Mathur, Director of Cardiology Department, in the middle of the night." ''Currently, he is admitted in ICU and under the close supervision of Dr Atul Mathur and his team. Kapil Dev is stable now and he is expected to get discharged in a couple of days,'' the statement added. Meanwhile, Kapil Dev's family members are yet to give an official statement about the same. © BCCL As soon as the announcement was made public, celebs and well-wishers started sending across love and prayers for the legendary cricketer on social media.

The World Cup-winning captain has been pretty active with his views on cricket in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The former Indian skipper was also dealing with diabetes-related health issues. © Reuters Did you know Kapil Dev is also the youngest all-rounder in the history of competitive cricket to have achieved the double of 1000 runs and 100 wickets at a mere 21 years of age? In fact, a biopic on the life of the cricketer is also being made into a Bollywood movie. Titled '83, the film stars Ranveer Singh in the titular role. © Twitter/Ranveerofficial Also, for the uninitiated, the legendary cricketer has three autobiographies: By God's Decree, Cricket My Style and Straight from the Heart - on him.

  12. We’ve been hearing about an Uncharted movie for over a decade now. And thankfully, we finally got the first look at what we can expect from the movie. The movie has suffered in the past with several directors, five release dates and actor replacements. However, a new picture of Tom Holland shows what his character as the young Nathan Drake will look like. Holland posted his first look for the character on his Instagram page and it shows that the movie is actually happening. © Naughty Dog However, we want to talk about his look since it’s probably the most accurate personification of Nathan Drake we’ve seen yet. He’s got the cargo pants, the pistol holders, a ring that probably belongs to Nathan’s ancestor Sir Francis Drake. The image also shows Holland playing a very young Nathan Drake even though the character we’ve played in the games was a much older Drake. It could be that the movie might be a prequel to the games or have its own story that we haven’t experienced before. We may also see an origin story for the character that we’ve only seen a glimpse of in the third Uncharted game Drake’s Deception. © Naughty Dog While we quite liked Tom Holland’s look, plenty of fans had mixed reactions to the image. Some fans wanted to see the older Nathan Drake look while some found Tom Holland’s personification weird. Here’s how everyone reacted to the image online: TOM HOLLAND AS NATHAN DRAKE IM SPEECHLESS pic.twitter.com/DFhSeTXziu — Maria (@quackzonqueen) October 22, 2020tom holland is going to own 2021 and I mean that pic.twitter.com/XdMbVqwU2m — joni (@lovleyholland) October 22, 2020Tom Holland actually makes a pretty good Nathan Drake pic.twitter.com/4PCGfJhovi — Hassan Hamid | BLM (@HassanHamid26) October 22, 2020No, you're not.

We’re yet to see any footage from the movie or any of the other characters and how they look. Personally, I’m quite interested to know how Sully and Elena Fisher will look, given that they would make an appearance in the movie. View the full article
  13. It was in 2010 when a 22-year-old Mesut Ozil first gave everyone a glimpse of his impeccable footballing skills. While Germany couldn't go past eventual champions Spain in the semifinals, Ozil left a big impression on the minds of football pundits and fans on the back of his impressive performances. Thanks to his rise to stardom, the German playmaker secured a lucrative contract with Real Madrid where he spent three years before swapping La Liga for English Premier League (EPL) with a move to Arsenal in 2013. His achievements and feats at Santiago Bernabeu earned him a spectacular reception at the Emirates stadium with the Gunners expecting their new signing to change their fortunes. © Reuters An elegant left-footed player blessed with great vision, Ozil dazzled in the Arsenal shirt in the initial years, under then-manager Arsene Wenger, before hitting a slump in form. Owing to his inconsistency on the pitch, Ozil fell out of favour under Wenger's successor Unai Emery - a situation their new manager Mikel Arteta inherited when he took charge last December. But, despite his past performances, Arteta gave Ozil a start in his first 10 league games in charge before the global pandemic led to the suspension of the Premier League. Since 7th March, Ozil has not seen a single minute of competitive action. And, despite being Arsenal's highest-paid player, earning a staggering £350,000-a-week in wages, Ozil was not included in Arteta's 25-man squad for the current EPL season. Dejected by his axing from the 25-man list, Ozil took to social media and penned down an emotional letter expressing his frustration at the club. "This is a difficult message to write to the Arsenal fans that I've played for over the past few years. I'm really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being," Ozil said in a letter he shared on Twitter. ️️ #M1Ö #YaGunnersYa pic.twitter.com/hF7abGklOT — Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) October 21, 2020 "Upon signing my new contract in 2018, I pledged my loyalty and allegiance to the club that I love, Arsenal, and it saddens me that this has not been reciprocated. As I have just found out, loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. Before the coronavirus break, I was really happy with the development under our new coach, Mikel Arteta - we've been on a positive way and I would say my performances were on a really good level," the letter read. "But then, things changed, again, and I was no longer allowed to play football for Arsenal. What else can I say? London still feels like home, I still have many good friends in this team, and I still feel a strong connection with fans of this club," he added. © Reuters If Ozil's dip in form isn't enough, his recent antics off the pitch, too, have weakened his relationship with the club and fans. During the pandemic, he was one of three players to refuse to take a 12.5 per cent pay cut which was later reduced to 7.5 per cent after Arsenal qualified for Europe by winning the FA Cup last season. Last December, the Gunners had also distanced themselves from Ozil's comments on Instagram where he spoke out against China's persecution of the Uighur population - a mostly Muslim Turkic people - by claiming the club "has always adhered to the principle of not involving itself in politics". Thus, many football fans slammed Ozil's heartfelt letter as a mere sympathy-seeking publicity stunt. Mesut you need to stop playing the victim, If you truly love our club, you would have agreed to move when given the opportunity to leave, rather than collecting Full pay knowing full well that there’s no future st this club for You! — The Chairman (@goonerck1) October 21, 2020The club have shown their loyalty to you in the shape of £350,000 PER WEEK. If the manager thought you could fit into his team you'd be playing. Arsenal have been ridiculously loyal to you despite your astronomical contract. If you actually cared about Arsenal you'd move clubs. — janderbend (@janderbend) October 21, 2020Bro @MesutOzil1088 if you aren't wanted....U leave!!!!stop all this PR stunts you are pulling,my country's headache is enough for me for now.whether you played well or not,it was communicated to you that aren't in the coaches plan as a good football player who knows his worth, — Orlando Innocent #BBnaija (@Straybulletz) October 21, 2020As an Arsenal fan I don’t want you to wear our shirt again. You have been supporting Erdogan and #Azerbaijan in their #WarCrimes against the Armenians in #Artsakh / Nagorno-Karabakh. Arsenal FC and it’s family of fans doesn’t stand for this. — 🇦🇲 (@hshay77) October 21, 2020Truth be told, Mesut is too greedy, the rest of the team agreed to the pay cut but he didn't, and now he talks about loyalty??? The discussion should be about greed, not loyalty. FOH! — Properties by WILLSTONE HOMES (@saomba) October 22, 2020You see, this right here is the problem. Always itching to talk.

When he finally leaves everyone will forget about him and focus on the Real thing which is Arsenal. Lobatan! 🤷‍♂️ — PaulAmo (@Paulexy02) October 22, 2020Dear Mesut, nice PR as always unfortunately outside of football you've concentrated more than on the pitch , since your arrival you've had two decent seasons...@adidasfootball dropped you aswell because let's face it your very average now and the football world knows it. — "Be Excited FC" (@GoonerCraig41) October 21, 2020At USD460,000/week anyone would be "loyal". Didn't he refuse a pay cut at the beginning of the covid19 crisis? Was he loyal then? — Alexei Ramotar (@AlexeiRamotar) October 21, 2020Had Ozil's performances in the last 3 years been as good as his PR we wouldn't have reached this situation. No player is bigger than the club. Time for us fans to move on. — Padfoot (@Prakhar_8) October 21, 2020You only have yourself to blame here. If you was loyal to our club you would of walked away in the summer, giving us more financial firepower. You chose money over helping the club and that is what most fans will remember you for. — Dave Boulton (@DaveyB92) October 21, 2020 View the full article

  15. Whether it's a man or woman, their wedding day is arguably one of the most important days in their life. Starting a new journey with a person is full of excitement and the pre-wedding functions add to the fervour. Similarly, the photoshoots have also become an integral part of the modern-day wedding. From picturesque locations, eye-catching attire to romantic poses, wedding shoots remain a big hit among modern-day couples. While everyone's looking to make theirs a memorable one, have you wondered what a wedding photoshoot of a cricketer looks like? Well, thanks to Sanjida Islam, now we know the answer. © Twitter/@BCBtigers The Bangladesh women's cricketer recently tied the nuptial knot with Mim Mosaddeak, who plays first-class cricket for Rangpur. While there is nothing new about cricketers finding their soulmates in the same profession, Mitchell Starc and Alyssa Healy being a prime example, the 24-year-old Bangladeshi cricketer stumped everyone with her unique wedding photoshoot. Dress ✅ Jewellery ✅ Cricket bat ✅ Wedding photoshoots for cricketers be like ... 🇧🇩 Sanjida Islam pic.twitter.com/57NSY6vRgU — ICC (@ICC) October 21, 2020 Dressed in traditional attire and sporting pretty ornaments, Sanjida got her wedding photoshoot done on a cricket field where she was snapped playing her favourite game. The International Cricket Council (ICC) took note of her uncanny photoshoot and shared it on social media. Lovely pic...one of the best I have seen in recent times. God bless her.. — Prit (@prit_raman) October 21, 2020 Making her international debut in 2012, Sanjida has represented Bangladesh in 70 matches. A top-order batswoman blessed with natural timing, the right-hander has scored 174 runs in 16 One-Day International (ODI) games. When it comes to Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), the Bangladeshi cricketer has 520 runs to her name in 54 matches. She last featured for Bangladesh in a T20I against Sri Lanka on 2nd March.

  16. When the Age Of Empires III: Definitive Edition was announced, I probably screamed at the top of my lungs because it evoked so many feelings from my childhood. The original game launched 15 years ago and Microsoft Studios remastered, in my opinion, one of the most underrated games in the franchise and the real-time strategy (RTS) genre. In many ways, this is the perfect remaster fans could have asked for while some changes baffled me as well. During our playthrough of the game, we had special moments just like they were 15 years ago while also getting a bit overshadowed by its predecessor, both the original and the remaster. © Microsoft Studios However, it is prudent to point out Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition is a lot of fun once you get into it. I spent most of my time in the campaign mode but my experience in the multiplayer mode is also worth mentioning. Proving my worth in the multiplayer mode quickly showed me that I needed to brush up my RTS skills that have become rusty. I still prefer AOE2’s multiplayer but the game truly shines in its campaign mode. The game is a faithful remaster of the original and there’s no denying that AOE: III was one of the best games that came out in the series. Our only complaint is that it is way too faithful to the original as there were no new features or mechanics added to to the overall gameplay. If you’ve played the original, the game is set in the 17th century and takes you on a journey up to the 19th century. You can get to pick from five of the major civilisations from the time i.e. the British, the Dutch, the Ottomans, the Sioux or the Japanese. Your main goal is to build up an empire that is not only technologically advanced but can also take over regions occupied by the four other empires. Much like any RTS game, you will start with a Town Center and a few villagers that help in gathering resources for building your city and military. You start out collecting essential resources that you need to build up barracks, homes and research new technologies so that you can develop new weapons. Once you go from one “Age” to the other, even more buildings, military units and other resources open up for you to keep building your empire. You need to be careful about how you use your resources as you may need it right away to build more stuff you need or save some for the future when you develop new technologies and powerful units. You also need to be wary of which civilisation you choose to play with as each has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, the Dutch can produce a lot of gold which you can use to build a great army, however it will be costly. Similarly, you can play as the Russians and it will be harder for you to create a thriving economy but far easier to amass an army. © Microsoft Studios We loved the fact that developers Forgotten Empires and Tantalus did not mess with the balancing of the game much. It provides a challenge for everyone no matter which empire you choose to play with. Having said that, we cannot comment about balancing for the multiplayer mode as players tend to find exploits with more time they spend with the game. The biggest difference you will find between AOE: III and other games in the franchise is that the game is more than just city-building. You get an explorer unit in every match where they can cover a broader area of the map and collect treasures along the way. You also gain experience which can be used to collect shipments from your home base. You can use different types of cards that can be used together for these shipments. These cards add a new facet to RTS games which makes you think harder about what your next move will be. © Microsoft Studios Having said that, we spent way too much time exploring and even the game puts more focus on this mechanic, which is also a big complaint amongst players in the community. It takes attention away from what AOE games are known for, building and fighting with other empires. It also affects the pacing of the game which may not be great for hardcore RTS players who like to play the traditional way. When comparing AOE III Definitive Edition with its predecessor, new additions will feel lacklustre. There are three new features and other quality-of-life upgrades that don’t feel exciting enough for old and new players alike. Some of the biggest changes include Art of War modes and Historical Battles. You get to play with two new civilisations i.e. the Inca and the Swedes where the latter are quite aggressive with their military tactics. The Inca on the other hand have vast resources especially food which can be stored and used for the military in the future. We didn’t get into detail with the new mode, however it seems like a value addition for players who want something more than the original game. © Microsoft Studios Historical Battles on the other hand was far more interesting as the mode depicts early modern military campaigns you may have read about in your history books. You get to play in Ethiopia, Russia and other regions where scenarios are longer and more challenging than the fictional campaign. It’s a great way to practice your skills for the multiplayer as well since some of these battles can get intense real quick. © Microsoft Studios Having said that, overall we did feel there was a lack of content, especially when compared with AOEII: Definitive Edition. There are far fewer civilisations to play with and lack a good number of campaign missions. AOE II: Definitive Edition came with over 100 campaign missions which is not the case here. Speaking of campaigns, in AOE III Definitive Edition, the main campaign does not follow historically accurate military campaigns and instead focuses on a fictional family feeding with a secret society. Having said that, you will experience real-life events from history during your campaign but they don’t play a bigger role than you would expect. Regardless of its setting, the game is worthy of playing because the story is still engaging enough for AOE fans. We did mention earlier that Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition is a remake of the original and it wouldn’t be fair if we don’t mention how good the game looks. The game did get a major overhaul in the graphics department and sounds better than ever before. Every character model has been redone and playing this game in 4K resolution was a dream. Even when you are zoomed in to the fullest, characters still look great. You will also notice major improvements in particle effects, especially during battle.
