  2. Ever wondered why they call it a fitness 'journey'? The obvious answer to it may be because we can't get that dream body overnight. But in all honesty, we all know there is more to it than meets the eye. And this journey, is in many ways, testing and teasing like all the others, and it is as much to do with a healthy 'body image' as it is to do with a healthy body. © Getty Images However, it would be a lie to call this journey regular, because it is certainly not and will never be. The journey to fitness is marked by many challenges, which are physical as well as psychological. The very decision to kickstart a fitness journey deserves many accolades in itself, and then comes in the constant battle we fight with ourselves over shedding those extra kilos and squeezing in another hour of sleep instead. From the dietary adjustments, to other long term compromises we are expected to make and a myriad of other miscellaneous things we are expected to abide by, makes this journey a real struggle. © Getty Images But then there exist some people who show us the real face of a fitness journey at their own expense, and it seems so true, every Indian guy would come to relate to it. Using Arjun Kapoor and weight loss in the same sentence may provoke a lot of you to break into laughter. But, can we spare a moment to consider that every “weight loss journey” is different from the last one you came across? That every individual who is on this journey is making a lot of effort to stop making excuses and charge towards a healthier body. © Twitter Well, if you are looking for an example to guide you on your own journey to a fitter you, then that's the man you should look out for. His isn't the most glitzy fat-to-fab story, it definitely doesn't make for a perfect example of a fitness journey either, and that is exactly what that makes Arjun's journey more real, more believable and therefore more inspiring. We witnessed Arjun Kapoor's drastic body transformation for his debut movie 'Ishaqzaade' back in 2012. When, as an aspiring actor, Arjun weighed 140 kgs, the dream of being a Bollywood actor seemed too far-fetched for him. But it was reportedly during his time as an assistant director for Nikkhil Advani's 2007 film 'Salaam-E-Ishq', that Salman Khan inspired him to lose weight, after which Salman allegedly also supervised Arjun's training sessions. Over the next three years, Arjun lost close to 50 kg before his big launch. © Instagram But hours ago, Arjun revealed his fitness journey over the years, and how his struggles with obesity have been a constant in his life since he was a child. Owing to many mental and personal reasons that always came in his way one way or another, Arjun has constantly battled with the weighing scale over the years. But nothing could make him give it all up, not when he knew what he is capable of. Read about his journey here. View this post on Instagram It's been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles I have had and continue to have mine. But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again... efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year... I started training with @shivohamofficial this January and slow and steady we have managed to At least lay a foundation during our prep for Panipat. I vowed never to give up in the 3 years it took me to lose 50kgs when I was 20 years old & I sure as hell won't be giving up and letting go now... keeping the belief is key, u gotta keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits... we all gotta keep the faith and keep at it cause what we do today will echo in time and reflect within us eventually... A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jun 17, 2019 at 11:18pm PDT Arjun's earnest and honest ways of always being candid about his weight issues and how he struggles and deals with it, is something most of us will relate to. Getting those 6-pack-abs and chiselled face comes at a cost, but how many people have been completely honest about their backstories, instead of posting daily gym selfies with sappy 'motivational' one-liners? © Instagram But, this guy here, brings forth the real story, and it will do us good to acknowledge it that while we are trying to get fit, it's okay to chase after it at the cost of your mental peace and happiness in general. The idea is to have a healthy body, that's the goal we are after.

  4. Before you remind me, I know that we are already halfway through 2019. But that doesn't mean you can't give your wardrobe a little upgrade mid-year to make an impression.

All you need to know are the essentials of pulling off a power look on a holiday. The keywords that'll guide your dressing style on a trip are – casual jackets, shorts and casual shirts. Sounds simple enough doesn't it? You can go for a simple tee with shorts and team it up with a bright casual jacket to complete the look. Try and add in some funky prints too.

  5. Let's face it, it's hard to keep yourself from asking for that slice of pizza, or ordering more 'bhature'. Well, that's exactly why a company decided to make an electric bracelet that delivers a 350-volt shock every time you decide to splurge on junk food that you'd be better off without eating. Called 'Pavlok bracelet', this piece of wearable tech is a behavior training device that utilizes aversive conditioning. Aversive conditioning, in case you don't know, is essentially behavior training that uses negative stimuli and association to reaffirm a specific action as undesirable. So yes, it'll know when you're doing something that you're not supposed to be doing. That being said, this bracelet can be used to keep you away from not just junk food, but any bad habits that you've been wanting to get rid of. Having trouble saving money? Smoking too many cigarettes? You name it and they know. The bracelet is capable of delivering 150 shocks on a single charge, which isn't too bad for something that's capable of tracking and stopping you from doing what you're not supposed to do. It connects and pair to an app on your phone, which even your friends an family can download to keep a track of you. © Pavlok This bracelet is currently being sold online on Amazon in the US for $199. It sounds a little expensive, but we think it's reasonable considering the fact that it's designed to help you curb your bad habits and replace them with good ones that help you live a better life. We really hope they start selling this bracelet outside the US because we all have cravings that are waiting to be kicked!
  6. We've already seen a couple of gaming phones from the likes of ASUS, Black Shark, etc. in India. And now, the Chinese smartphone maker Nubia has also launched the new Red Magic 3 gaming phone in the country. The Nubia Red Magic 3 has a lot going for it like an internal cooling, flagship specifications like Snapdragon 855 SoC, and more. Well, here's everything that you need to know about this phone. © Nubia The Nubia Red Magic 3, just like the OnePlus 7 Pro, sports a 90Hz 6.65-inch FHD+ panel with support for HDR. As mentioned earlier, the phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC and it comes with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The Red Magic 3 also has an Adreno 640GPU to take care of the graphics side of things. The Nubia Red Magic 3 is also the world's first smartphone to sport an internal cooling fan. Yes, this particular phone, regardless of the variant you buy, comes with a cooling fan to keep things nice and cool while you're gaming. In addition to a cooling fan, the phone also takes advantage of the liquid cooling system. © YouTube Yes, it sounds like overkill, but there's no such thing as 'too much' power when it comes to anything related to gaming, and we're glad that Nubia has decided to pack this phone with all these features. The internals of the Red Magic 3 will be kept powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 27W quick charging, just like the Black Shark 2. In terms of the optics, the Red Magic 3 sports a 48MP Sony IMX 586 at the back, and there's a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. The phone is also said to be capable of recording 8K videos and we're sure the cooling fan will come handy in such cases. Other noteworthy specs of the phone include shoulder buttons for gaming and front-facing stereo speakers for an immersive media consumption experience. Pricing & Availability The Nubia Red Magic 3 will be available exclusively through Flipkart. The Red Magic 3 starts at Rs 35,999 for the base variant and it goes all the way up to Rs 46,999 for the high-end variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
  7. Ayushmann Khurrana has sure come a long way and has made a name for himself in the industry. Being an outsider, it's not easy to make a mark, but with his versatile choices and acting skills, Ayushmann has managed to attract a massive following of movie buffs, who just wait to see him in all his glory on the big screen. Now, he is all set to show his acting prowess in his upcoming film, 'Article 15'. The trailer has already piqued the interest of the viewers and they are waiting with bated breath to see Ayushmann nail his character, like all his other roles. The plot of 'Article 15' bears a resemblance to the 2014 Badaun gangrape and murder case, and it will surely be a mirror to the society and its brutal practices. While a majority of people were all praises for the trailer, some users on social media found it a bit 'offensive' and Ayushmann somewhere knows that it has affected a certain section of the society. Well, according to Ayushmann, there is nothing 'offensive' as such when you will see the film. At an event, when he was asked about the criticism, he said, “But after they watch the film, (they'll realize) there's nothing offensive or maybe we have offended everyone because we haven't targeted any community.” The movie is all set to hit the screens on June 28 and the trailer has given us an insight into what the film has to offer. The film also stars Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat, and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub. The film talks about Article 15 of the Indian Constitution, which prohibits discrimination by the state against any citizen on the basis of religion, race, caste, ***, and place of birth. Talking about the idea behind the movie, the actor said, “Our country is a unique one because we have all kinds of people and we are very sensitive towards ourselves. We are proud of ourselves, of our communities. We are so depressed in our real lives that we need something to feel proud about. The appeal of this film is we should be proud of our country, but we can't be blindly proud of it. We need to better our nation.” We do agree with his thoughts. What about you?
  8. Often labelled as the mother of all battles, the Indian cricket team's much-anticipated clash against Pakistan at the ongoing ICC World Cup on 16th June failed to live up to the billing. The contest, that pitted arch-rivals India and Pakistan against each other, turned out to be a one-sided affair as Virat Kohli-led brigade proved too good for their opponents at Old Trafford. While Rohit Sharma's blistering knock of 140 runs set the tone for India's mammoth total of 336 runs, a collective effort by their bowling unit, thoroughly complimented by some mediocre batting from Pakistani batsmen, powered Kohli & co to a 89-run triumph via Duckworth-Lewis method (D/L). A splendid 140 from Rohit Sharma, which came off just 113 balls, guided India to their seventh straight victory over Pakistan in World Cup cricket ð¥ The Hit-Man is our @Oppo Shotmaker for India v Pakistan. pic.twitter.com/CIDOxS7bo3 — ICC (@ICC) June 17, 2019 On one hand, where the Pakistani fans were left red-faced in the wake of their team's dismal show, the mood on the other side of the border was celebratory. From Bollywood celebrities, prominent politicians to crazed fans, everyone lauded the clinical show produced by the Indian cricket team which has now extended their unbeaten run to four games in the ongoing World Cup. Amongst the innumerable messages and celebratory videos, there's one that clearly stands out and sums up the mood of Indian fans. While Kohli & Co were busy cutting Pakistan a sorry figure on the field, Rishabh Pant and Ziva Dhoni were having a gala time in the stands. View this post on Instagram Partners in crime ð @ziva_singh_dhoni A post shared by Rishabh Pant (@rishabpant) on Jun 16, 2019 at 11:42am PDT Pant, who recently reached England as a backup following Shikhar Dhawan thumb injury, shared a video on Instagram where he was seen rooting for Team India alongside MS Dhoni's adorable daughter. Their cute video was liked and cherished by Indian cricket fans who also expressed their desire to see Pant donning Indian colours at the World Cup soon.
  9. After a fortnight of conjecture, Chelsea Football Club announced the exit of Maurizio Sarri as their manager through their website. The Italian will now join Serie A giants Juventus, penning a three-year long contract with the Bioncaneri. Unlike predecessors Jose Mourinho and Anotnio Conte, Sarri was never a popular figure at Chelsea. Despite a winning start and going unbeaten for the first 12 league games of the campaign, becoming the first manager in the history of the Premier League to do so, and a home win against champions Manchester City in December; a poor run of form and dip in results in the beginning of 2019 led to discontent among fans and higher level management alike. © Reuters In a club that is used to watching adaptive and reactive football, Sarri's stubborn and tactical approach did not sit well with fans. The Jorginho-Kante situation is a perfect example of this. The brilliant Frenchman was made to play away from his usual defensive midfield position to accommodate Sarri's system that needed Jorginho in the center of midfield to bridge the gap between defense and attack. This did not go down well with the fans. Even after securing Champions League football with a third place finish in the Premier League and the Europa League title, Sarri will not be the manager of Chelsea next year. It has since been debated whether the Italian was forced out of the club or he opted to seek greener pastures at Juventus. But it highlights a major problem for the West London club- the owner and board of the club never bought into Maurizio's philosophy and hiring a manger like him without believing in him is a poor decision, given Chelsea's previous track record with managers. Sarri joins Juventus as part of a clear project, to win the coveted UEFA Champions League trophy and to implement an attacking and possession based style of football while doing so. For Chelsea, however, uncertainty rings throughout Stamford Bridge regarding who will take up the role. Thank you and good luck for the future, Maurizio. ð pic.twitter.com/dGHzekBNPT — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) June 16, 2019 Former Stamford Bridge hero Frank Lampard is the bookmaker's favourite with former players Jody Morris and Petr Cech set to take up roles as Assistant Manager and Technical Director respectively. It seems likely that Chelsea will be bringing the old guard back but they will be in charge of the backroom operations rather than taking the field. The appointments might excite fans of the club but it also highlights two major concerns, a major change of approach from owner Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board; and the lack of options at Chelsea's disposal to replace Sarri. Only one year into his management career with tier-two side Derby County, Frank Lampard may be a Chelsea hero, but he's a very inexperienced appointment which is uncharacteristic of Abramovich and Chelsea. Petr Cech, having just retired from football, filling the role of Technical Director is another massive risk. © Reuters With a particularly hard dressing room to manage that has gone through 4 managers in 6 seasons, the transfer of star talisman Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and a potential two-window transfer ban from FIFA due to the breaches concerning the transfer of players who are under 18, the problems are piling up for the Blues. Other managerial options such as former blues boss Jose Mourinho and ex-Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri are unlikely to take charge of such a problematic dressing room. Lampard and the old guard look like Chelsea's best option. After a successful campaign with Derby County, very nearly clinching promotion to the Premier League, Lampard has shown a Mourinho-esque swagger in his time at Derby and his promotion of youth and positive tactics are big reasons why Chelsea would consider the Englishman for the job. However, overwhelming questions still remain unanswered for Chelsea. Can Lampard do the job for them? If not him, then whom? How will they cope with the potential transfer ban? How will they balance a problematic dressing room with an up-and-coming academy? All things said and done, however, the appointment comes at a time when a legend like Lampard's appointment could be the bounce that Chelsea fans need to reignite their passion for the club as they will kick-off their Premier League campaign at Old Trafford on 11th August.
  10. Even though Father's Day is a self-made fraction of recognising the true essence of fatherhood, it's still a day to celebrate the most fundamental relationship people share. Father's Day is a day where you remember the one person in your life who changed your world around just by their endurance towards giving you the best life. But Father's Day isn't just about biological 'fathers', to be fair. It's solemnly about a father-figure, who gives you determination and courage to face life's worst challenges and come out as a winner. Men who take a stand to become a guiding light for someone and be their voice of reason also deserve a fair chance of being acknowledged this Father's Day. (c)Facebook We have someone amidst us, who gave up so-called an idealistic career like being a doctor, engineer or even a businessman, in life to become a father-figure to hundreds of slum kids who needed direction and inherent care. Murphy Raphael John nurtures and takes care of children from the slum, through his trust 'Reach Out and Pass It On' and this Father's Day, let's celebrate the work he has put in to raising numerous kids, with proper education and much-needed life skills and making them stand tall and proud on their own two feet. (c)Facebook 'Reach It Out and Pass It On' believes in empowering people just so they can empower others in the future. Murphy had never planned on doing this as a profession or even recreationally, but according to him, some things choose you and you have to go along with them. When he was in college he was actively involved in activities concerning Church Youth, a service orientated wing of the church and he used to spend a lot of time actively volunteering for various social causes. Amongst various efforts that were being made by young people, interacting with a bunch of kids, from the nearest slums was one of them. "I always wanted to start this as a project with members from the Church Youth, but no one seemed interested. One day someone told me to stop waiting for people to come and do something on my own instead. And whoever has to come, will follow. At first it was scary, but I had a bunch of friends helping me out and we decided to do this once a week. We spent a lot of time with these kids in Central Delhi, who would sit next to the Gurudwara and the Church, and from there on everything has been very evolutionary in nature. A situation came in front, and a solution to it was our next step. We started playing, teaching and spending quality time with these kids, everyday" - said Murphy, over a conversation with him. (c)Facebook From thereon, after recognising what these kids really needed, things began to spiral and become bigger. At that point Murphy or his friends hadn't thought about bringing this initiative under an umbrella or a name. They would all go spend time with them, whenever they found time and have conversations with them, like they were family. Even though Murphy's friends would visit the children sporadically, Murphy made it a point to spend a few hours with them, every day. The kids in turn loved their mentors and would come every day to meet Murphy and his friends. They would indulge in conversations about life and the universe, mental math, logical reasoning, life skills and eating healthy food. After realising the seriousness of how Murphy is impacting lives, he began to think of this project more seriously. During the monsoons, Murphy approached a school nearby to give these kids shelter while they would spend time with their mentors and when the school agreed, on an autopilot, the kids started attaining proper education, as they all got enrolled in to the school. (c)Facebook "We had a classroom in the school nearby and studies for these kids started. But obviously the kids never looked forward to studying, so they started running away. Which made me realise over time that street kids came to us because they got something from us, which they hadn't ever received from anyone else. They got human companionship, they got friendship, they got someone to play with them and of course their need was survival and because I was 20-years-old at the time, I could not give them that. So, I did what I thought was best. I approached the nearest slum, where these kids belonged and that's when our next phase started, where we started working with the slums." (c)Facebook Over time, Murphy and his team shifted to the slums and started working with the kids there. There were kids from the ages of 5 till 20, who were deeply engrossed in Murphy's teaching mechanism. Towards the end of 2010, the slum Murphy was working with got demolished without a notice that was given to the slum dwellers, so a lot of families were displaced and hadn't been rehabilitated. In such a dire time, Murphy would assemble as many children from the slums as he could and take them to a night shelter, and spend nights with them there, in harsh winters. "Whatever money we had collected we would buy food at night and feed them, while take the children to night shelters, after seeking permission from their parents. I definitely did not give up on the slum that was demolished as I had formed a bond with the families there. As a youth, one is more fiery and driven and I kept thinking we need to do something more for these kids. And that's where the idea of starting a centre came to me. We got a place on rent, after much difficulty. We managed to find a room and in a very small space, 25 kids and I shifted in." (c)Facebook Even though Murphy found a temporary set-up for the kids, he used the opportunity to help them, to the hilt and made sure, he helped them with their upcoming examinations. Apart from mentoring them for their exams, Murphy also taught them other life skills like cooking, cleaning, washing utensils and clothes, etc. Murphy realised that if he had to sustain this arrangement, to help these children out, he would need some form of funding and that's where, permanency started making sense to him. He realised in order to get donations and funding, he would need to register this ensemble as a trust, and that's when 'Reach Out and Pass It On' was born. "The set up was temporary, but the kids and I were so attached, we didn't want to give up on it. They decided that a bigger place would make sense and with the help of few donations, we shifted to a bigger centre in Patel Nagar, and we stayed put there for the next two-and-a-half-years. The kids would go to school, we would have lunch, they would study and then I would give them money to go back home. But the kids would tell me 'Bhaiya we travel so much, we don't have time to do homework and we can't study at home', so they started staying back with me twice a week, sometimes three times a week and eventually they started staying with me every day and I was like listen your parents will kill me. So then they started going back home once a week." (c)Facebook Everything was just a beautiful evolution for these kids and for Murphy as well. In 2013, the centre was shifted from Patel Nagar to Ramesh Nagar and they have been there for the past 7 years now. When the centre shifted, they approached another slum nearby and kids started coming from there to be a part of this beautiful journey. Today, the centre hosts about 100 children from two different slums, who come and imbibe some life skill training and learn to be better human beings. Reach out and Pass it On's main focus is overall development. They provide means for opportunity and whatever opportunity that can help a child with development and growth. They had a need for education, so they provided education through people who would volunteer to come and teach at the centre. They needed space to learn and grow, so a space was taken up, to accommodate everyone. A lot of kids have talent, so the centre found ways to befit that by enrolling kids in crafts, music, dance, sports, cooking and baking, etc. Workshops are conducted on health and hygiene, personality development and values. "We don't want to just create educated people. We want to create good people. We don't want just literacy, but people who have a sane head on their shoulders. and that's what the name 'Reach Out and Pass it On' means. Whatever you learn you need to pass it on. You can't just hoard it for yourself. So, if you built people to be capable and confident, then they will find their way in life."

When they reach grade 12th, they're given the option of either leaving the centre or staying. The ones who stay are the ones who volunteer and pass on their leanings to younger children in the centre. They're also involved with the running of the centre, by helping with daily accounts and the upkeep of the centre, which is a beautiful practice to actually pay it forward. We seldom indulge in paying back what we've truly learnt from the world and that's what Reach Out and Pass It On emphasises on. ''My first batch of kids, one girl did her English honours and now is a choreographer at Danceworx. I had two boys who completed their sociology honours. One gave a bank exam for Axis and got a placement there. The other one did his masters in social design and he will soon be graduating and getting a job in the social development sector. One of the students did economic honours and is now preparing for government exams."

Murphy has formed an incredible and inevitable circuit of 'doers', who pass on the good in them, to help other people perceive it and on Father's Day, all we can learn from this is the true meaning of gratitude and solidarity, along with a lot of trust and fun.

Eventually I want them to grow up to be good people, be a part of the world and make friends. This is my sole aim for these children," Murphy signed off.
  11. Over the last decade, Chris Gayle has established himself as the most dangerous batsman of this generation, if not of all time. A big part of his journey towards becoming the feared powerhouse that he is, has been plying his trade in franchise tournaments in the Indian subcontinent. He has featured for Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and teams from Lahore and Karachi in the Pakistan Super League. The love he has received from the subcontinent has been unparalleled. So, it comes as no surprise to see Chris Gayle show his support in creating the spectacle that is India vs Pakistan. In the run-up to the game to be played between the two rivals in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, he showed off his 'special outfit' for the game on social media. View this post on Instagram Yup!

  12. If you're a pet parent, then this piece of information will warm your heart and excite you in a wonderful way. Netflix's absolutely beautifully show 'Dogs' is up for a second season. Firstly, a big 'yay' for it, and secondly, the producers of the show are on the lookout for some beautiful tales to tell and are scouting for stories. For the uninitiated, 'Dogs' told the tale of pet parents and their dogs and the role of a dog in a human's life. The episodes made us cry and smile in equal measures because, duh, what else could a story about a BFF with a tail do to you? If you have a beautiful story of your own with your dog or you know someone who does and deserves to be on the show, then one just simply has to go on their social media, narrate their story using the tag @netflixdogs and the hashtag #netflixdogstory. Yes, that is all my dear friends. © Netflix Even if our story doesn't make it to one of the episodes of the docu-series, this is one game we all win because no doggo story is a bad story after all, am I right? The second season doesn't have a set date but will reportedly premiere in December.
  13. If you would ask me what I would like to do for the rest of my life, I would always answer with one word: Eat! via GIPHY If there is anything in the world that I love unconditionally, it is food. Is there anything better than eating your favourite food? Digging into that freshly prepared chicken curry, finished with some chopped coriander, or having your fingers turn yellow after eating that delightful fish curry? via GIPHY Or having a heavenly helping of dal with steamed rice? Or biting into the piece of that decadently gorgeous chocolate cake? via GIPHY Or a spoonful of that Biryani? via GIPHY Who can resist the smell of freshly fried garlic or not get enchanted by the sound of sizzling onions? (The answer is always a resounding “NO”) I mean, can there be any love more sincere than the love for food? If there has to be a unanimous entity for bringing people together, I don't think that can be accomplished by anything other than food. Food has an intrinsic quality, an all-pervasive nature: it serves as a mirror to culture, a part of the tradition, a bond for communities, an allegory for desires, an expression of love. I have hardly come across another entity as ubiquitous as food, its inherent diversity; how its excess can cause you discomfort and so can its dearth. How it trickles down to the most downtrodden parts of society but is also adulated in haute living. How it can be sensual, ignite passions, add spice to your life, and in turn, can also be a proponent of disgust or the start of a grotesque fiasco. Another facet which accompanies food and is crucial is its presentation, its ocular appeal. And as humans, who are visual by nature, our gastronomical desires are magnified tenfold when we see food on the big screen. via GIPHY Remember that Chocolate Cake from the movie “Matilda”? via GIPHY Film and food share a relationship of yore; movies celebrating food are shot gorgeously, are aesthetically pleasing while they tell stories of people like us, and how food influences us all. In these films, food drives the story forward, changes the protagonist's life. Movies also incorporate sound, which is an important aspect of food: be it cutting into it or its preparation, the clanging of utensils, the sizzle of a pan. Essentially, these movies provide the union of two of the senses: visual and aural, which is always an amazing combination. So, here are 16 delectably scrumptious movies that quite literally serve a piece of life (and make you raid your fridge in the middle of the night): 1. Julie and Julia (2009): Stuck in the rut of her bureaucratic dead-end job (Hello there!), Julie Powell decides (Amy Adams) to take on a project to relieve herself from the boredom of her uneventful life. The project: Cooking her way through Julia Child's enormous cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, in 365 days and blogging about it. Little does she know that this little venture of hers will change her life forever. Two stories, two women, bound by their mutual love for food. © Columbia Pictures Starring Amy Adams as Julie Powell and Meryl Streep as the famous, celebrated cook, Julia Child, the movie explores the lives of the two women parallelly in two different eras: Julie, in 2002, as she starts her blog and cooks up all the 524 recipes, and Julia, in 1949, as she moves to Paris and finds her calling as a chef and collaborates on the now-famous cookbook which made her into a culinary icon. © Columbia Pictures Julie and Julia, directed by Nora Ephron, is one of the most heartwarming movies which celebrate food and its importance in life. It drives home the fact that inspiration can come in any form, you just need to believe in yourself. (If you wish, you can read my review on the movie here: USP: The food! The gorgeous, divine, decadent food! Especially the “Butter Monologue” and the “Boeuf Bourguignon”. via GIPHY via GIPHY Meryl Streep as Julia Child is a phenomenon; not only is the resemblance uncanny, she impersonates Julia Child's idiosyncrasies to the T, be it the trademark, out-of-breath, slightly tipsy voice or the quirky mannerisms. via GIPHY via GIPHY “Bon Appetit!” via GIPHY 2. Chef (2014): When Carl (Jon Favreau), a renowned chef of a famous restaurant in California decides to be more creative with his recipes, he is met with resistance from the restaurant owner, Riva (Dustin Hoffman). To make matters worse, he gets into a public altercation with a prestigious food critic, Ramsey Michel, after the latter writes a distasteful review of his food. © Aldamisa Entertainment Heartbroken, he quits the job and embarks on a journey of self-discovery through food; food that he actually loves and that fulfils his creative aspirations. Eventually, he opens a food truck while trying to mend his frail relationship with his estranged son, Percy (Emjay Anthony). Will he be successful? USP: The food scenes are aesthetically attractive, kudos to cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau. via GIPHY Jon Favreau's directorial prowess and love for food is apparent in the movie. via GIPHY 3. The Lunchbox (2012): In an attempt to add some zing into her unromantic marriage, Ila (Nimrit Kaur) turns to the most trusted entity of all: food. And in her quest to quite literally spice up her love life, she decides to send her inattentive husband, Rajiv, a lunch every day with the help of ever-dependable dabbawallas in Mumbai. But by a curious twist of fate, the dabba prepared for her husband lands on the table of Saajan Fernandes (Irfan Khan), an aged, lonely widower who works as an accountant. © UTV Motion Pictures Upon realizing her mistake, she sends in a letter with her next lunchbox elaborating on the predicament, which starts a correspondence that soon turns into a beautiful friendship, guided by letters and an erroneously delivered lunchbox containing delicious food. © UTV Motion Pictures USP: The movie encapsulates the beauty of human relations: how we can forge connections with people we have never met yet can completely relate to and understand. And it helps even more when food is involved in the equation! via GIPHY Again, the food! Especially, the Paneer Kofta which Ila makes as a thank you gesture. :D via GIPHY The superb performances by Irfan and Nimrit tug at your heart. And not to forget, Deshpande Auntie (who is not seen but only heard)! 4. Chocolat (2000): When free-spirited, single mother Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche) arrives in a quaint, quiet village in France with her daughter Anouk, her unconventional ways earn her the ire of the village folk, especially the staunchly conservative mayor, Comte de Reynaud. © Miramax Films Vianne, an expert chocolatier, opens up a small chocolate shop in the village, much to the displeasure of Reynaud who vehemently opposes her, publicly accusing her of bringing temptation into the lives of the people, especially during Lent. via GIPHY As the story progresses, Vianne's eponymous temptation, the aforementioned chocolate, brings about a change in the village and its inhabitants in varied ways. The plot thickens when Vianne's own desire comes in the form of Roux, a gypsy who wants more than her chocolate. via GIPHY USP: The chocolate! Duh! :P via GIPHY 5. Like Water for Chocolate (1992): A passionate Mexican movie, directed by Alfonso Arau and based on Laura Esquivel's novel, showcasing how food affects life, and how our emotions influence not only the food we cook but also the people we serve it to. With themes of magic realism, the movie focuses on the illicit relationship between Tita (Lumi Cavazos) and Pedro (Marco Leonardi). © Miramax Why illicit? Because as per family tradition, Tita, being the youngest of three daughters cannot marry and needs to live her life as a help to the other members, especially her mother, Mama Elena (Regina Torné). Resigned to her fate, Tita learns cooking under the tutelage of the chef, Nacha (Ada Carrasco), who teaches her the relationship between food and life. © Miramax Heartbreakingly, when Pedro comes to express his love for Tita, he is betrothed to her sister, Rosaura (Yareli Arizmendi), in exchange as the tradition still stands. As her affair with Pedro intensifies, her feelings start to seep into the food she cooks, eventually becoming an outlet for her emotions, but also inadvertently manifesting itself the behaviour of the people around her. via GIPHY USP: There are two scenes: As she prepares the cake for Pedro's wedding, Tita weeps, and her tears fall into the batter which leads to an eventful dinner reception. When she uses roses gifted by Pedro to make a quail dinner with rose petal sauce, it leads to her family feeling inexorable carnal desire. via GIPHY 6. The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (1989): Michael Gambon (Yes, Dumbledore!) stars in this vogueish black comedy/ crime drama as Alberta Spica (The Thief), an uncouth and repulsive gangster who, along with his band of thugs, has taken over the French restaurant “Le Hollandais” but calls himself an urbane gourmet. © Palace Pictures He terrorizes everyone in the restaurant, but the brunt of the terror is unleashed most on his sophisticated wife, Georgina (Helen Mirren/The Wife) and the head chef, Richard Borst (Richard Bohringer/The Cook) who despises Alberta but is unable to do anything about it. Drama ensues when Georgina finds herself lusting for a regular customer, Michael (The Lover/Alan Howard), who is a bookshop owner and reads while he eats. As her affair progresses, Alberta finds out and then makes life hell for the staff which helps Georgina with her lover. USP: The performances by the lead cast. The film uses food as an allegory for the voyeuristic attitude of Alberta and his pretentiousness. His supposed gourmet personality is a far cry from his real one, which he tries to hide like spices are used to mask uncooked food. Warning: You need a strong stomach for this! :P 7. I Am Love (2009): In this Italian film, Tilda Swinton stars as Emma, the Russian-born daughter-in-law of a wealthy, Milanese family, the Recchi's, who is trying to find herself, away from the glittery, Haute living her family expects her to lead. © Mikado Film As she ruminates over her predicament during a lavish family dinner, help comes in the form of young Antonio Bisceglia (Edoardo Gabbriellini), a celebrated chef who incites her dormant passion with the aid of food. Matters worsen when her son Edoardo Jr. clashes with the family regarding the set path for him as Emma finds herself drawn to Antonio. © Mikado Film USP: Tilda Swinton and the prawns. via GIPHY 8. Ratatouille (2007): What can I say about this delightful movie? Not only is it one of the best animated movies to have ever been made, but it also features delicious food! The wonderful comedy revolves around a rat, with a highly developed sense of smell and taste named Remy (Patton Oswalt) who aspires to become a chef. As luck would have it, he ends up in the kitchen of the restaurant of his recently deceased idol, chef Auguste Gusteau's (Brad Garett). © Walt Disney Pictures Once there, he manages to strike up a friendship with the garbage boy, Alfredo Linguini (Lou Romano), helping him and guiding him in creating dishes and earn the appreciation of the new owner, Chef Skinner (Ian Holm). via GIPHY But soon, a secret is revealed that changes the course of the movie. Friendship, love, and food in one neat package! USP: The entire Anton Ego (the irascible food critic portrayed by Brad Bird) sequence and the ratatouille dish, confit byaldi! via GIPHY Never have I seen such a beautiful rendition of food in mainstream animated movies! (Not counting the stunning food shown in Anime :P) via GIPHY 9. Burnt (2015): Starring Bradley Cooper as a drug-addled former executive chef Adam Jones, the story revolves around his quest to put his life back on track and earn a third Michelin Star. © Shiny Penny Productions Adam is a brilliant but mercurial chef whose creativity is marred by his drug habit and unstable temper, which destroys his mentor's restaurant in Paris along with Adam's credibility. Adam realizes his self-destructive streak and goes on a self-imposed exile to New Orleans to gain perspective. He travels to London to pursue his dream of the Michelin Star, under the banner of his restaurateur friend, who grudgingly allows him to become a chef in his hotel. © Shiny Penny Productions His luck seemingly changes until ghosts from his past and his own mental stability conspire to take him down. USP: The food porn! via GIPHY 10. Big Night (1996): In this dramedy, two Italian brothers, Primo and Secondo, put out all strings for the 'Big Night' that will catapult their sinking authentic Italian restaurant, Paradise, to dizzying heights. © Timpano Production Primo, the perfectionist of the two, is annoyed and frustrated by the Americanized version of authentic Italian dishes, which he refuses to serve to customers, insisting on cooking only the true version, leading to him losing customers by the score. Secondo, the businessman of the duo, is more concerned with the running of the place and keeping it afloat than to retain cultural heritage. © Timpano Production With nowhere else to go, they try to strike out a deal with their nemesis, Pascal who owns a successful restaurant, who refuses to give them a loan. But, in an unlikely liberal gesture offers them to treat Louis Prima, a renowned American-Italian singer, to a meal at their restaurant who can change their fortune. Will they be successful? USP: The crowning glory has to be the timpano! via GIPHY Tony Shalhoub as Primo and Stanley Tucci as Secondo are delightful in their roles; the best part of the movie is any scene they are together! 11. 'The Trip' Trilogy (2010/2014/2017-): This BBC series which was made into a feature film stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as themselves on a gastronomical journey through Northern England (in the first movie/series) commissioned by the Observer; their job is to visit different restaurants, try their food and review it. © BBC Worldwide When Steve's girlfriend refuses to go with him on the trip, he invites his frenemy, fellow actor/comedian Rob Brydon to accompany him on the journey. As they travel through England, locking horns with each other on everything. Guided by their egos, trying to outwit each other, while being clueless about fine dining, their animosity dissolves into a camaraderie which is fun to watch. © BBC Worldwide Be it their fight over who can do a better Michael Caine impression or which syllable should be pronounced first in kumquat, Rob and Steve meander across beautiful locales, eating decadent, delicious food. via GIPHY And it isn't over in England! They return to wander across Italy in the sequel with renewed vows to upstage each other. And if that wasn't enough, they are back to eat more and traipse around in broken Spanish in the next sequel, The Trip to Spain! © BBC Worldwide One of the best road trip movies ever! via GIPHY USP: The nearly pornographic shots of the food: The buttery scallops frying in the pan! Absolute bliss! The cheesy pasta in “The Trip to Italy”; divine! Not to forget, the Michael Caine impersonation by Rob Brydon is spot on! Rob and Steve' bromance, their will-they won't-they chemistry, their asinine fights, has to be one of the most hilarious parts of the movie, cementing them into iconic duo status. 12. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971): One of the most adored children's books of all time, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', was adapted to screen in 1973 in a movie written by Roald Dahl (who later disowned it), with Gene Wilder playing Willy Wonka in a now-iconic role. © Paramount Pictures © Paramount Pictures And who can forget the Oompa Loompas? via GIPHY The story focuses on Charlie Bucket, a poor boy who finds himself the winner of a Golden Ticket giving him access to Willy Wonka's bizarre and unconventional Chocolate Factory along with four other children (and his whiner of a grandfather). via GIPHY The children, each with their unique personalities, are promised a lifetime supply of chocolate at the end of the trip. via GIPHY But will it be as easy as it looks? via GIPHY USP: Willy Wonka's legendary forward roll! via GIPHY The Chocolate Room: All you can eat candy! :D via GIPHY via GIPHY Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka is perfect, and no one has come close to his sweetly comical yet maniacal (and terrifying) portrayal of one of Roald Dahl's most notorious characters. © Paramount Pictures 13. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005): While both iterations of this children's book capture the quirky Willy Wonka and Charlie's adventures inside the Chocolate factory superbly, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is truer to the novel than its predecessor. © Warner Bros. Pictures Starring Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka, this movie has superior special/visual effects and a more whimsical setting, typical of Tim Burton's movies. © Warner Bros. Pictures The movie stands out in terms of character development, giving a backstory to Willy Wonka which serves a reason for his eccentric personality, something which wasn't quite clear in the 1971 movie. via GIPHY USP: The chocolate river! It truly looks edible (also because it is faux melted chocolate) and is much better than the 1971's dull version. It is visually more appealing. via GIPHY The squirrels breaking the nuts always cracks me up! Johnny Depp's portrayal of Willy Wonka is superb; wacky and quirky (but still not close to Gene Wilder), with just a touch of authenticity. via GIPHY 14. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009): Eccentric wannabe scientist Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) is always working on a new project: spray-on shoes, hair un-balding serum, a monkey thought translator. But unfortunately for him, all his endeavours result in failure. via GIPHY When his new project, a machine that converts water into food, the FLDSMDFR, fails and inadvertently gets launched into space while wreaking havoc on the town, Flint decides to hang up his shoes. © Sony Pictures Animation As he miserably walks around as the social pariah, his machine makes a comeback in style: it starts raining cheeseburgers all over town. via GIPHY Flint then uses a communicator to let the machine cater to the epicurean needs of the residents of Chewandswallow. Overjoyed, the town people keep making requests until their greed and gluttony sets in. via GIPHY As a catastrophe seems to be imminent, Clint sets off with his new friends, Sam Sparks (Anna Farris), Officer Devereaux (Mr. T), Brent (Andy Samberg), Manny (Benjamin Bratt), and his BFF Steve the Monkey (Neil Patrick Harris), to end it. USP: The food storm! All the spaghetti and the meatballs, and the ICECREAM! Flint's father, Tim (James Caan), is the absolute best! via GIPHY 15. Eat Drink Man Woman (1994): In this Taiwanese comedy-drama, Mr Chu (Sihung Lung) is a widowed Chinese master chef with three unmarried daughters, who cooks up a dinner feast every Sunday for his daughters as a tradition. © The Samuel Goldwyn Company His independent daughters, with their ideas of the modern world and diverse dispositions, clash with their traditionalist father over the dinner table. © The Samuel Goldwyn Company As the struggle over the superiority of values continues, with generation gap running rampant, the daughters and Mr Chu realize that perhaps traditions and new ideas can mix well, just like food with unconventional ingredients. via GIPHY Directed by Ang Lee, the movie has a quiet grace about itself, its wisdom percolating in the viewer's mind through the brilliant story. USP: The food throughout the movie, especially the opening sequence. Mr Chu's passion for food and his dexterity in his craft is apparent in the scenes. via GIPHY The beautiful, intricate dumplings! via GIPHY 16. Waitress (2007): Keri Russell stars as Jenna, a down-on-her-luck waitress who creates ingenious pies with uncommon names. Stuck in an unhappy marriage, Jenna's world is further complicated when she finds out that she is pregnant with her abusive husband's child. © Fox Searchlight Pictures As Jenna struggles with the new revelation, her only comfort being the therapeutic pie making she indulges in, respite comes in the form of a pie baking contest with a $25,000 prize which can be the key to her happiness and freedom. © Fox Searchlight Pictures As she gears up for the competition, luck seems to have a different plan for her. via GIPHY USP: The pies and their creative names: The Strawberry Chocolate Oasis Pie, Baby Screaming Its Head Off In The Middle Of The Night And Ruining My Life Pie, Kick In The Pants Pie. via GIPHY As decadent as they sound! :P via GIPHY So, what are you waiting for? Watch these now! Let the foodie in you reign supreme! via GIPHY P.S.: Don't watch these on an empty stomach. :P
  14. Sanjay Gupta is all set to return to what he loves doing the most, making gangster dramas. The popular director, who is completing his 25 years in the industry, announced his upcoming movie, 'Mumbai Saga'. Sanjay has a knack of getting a stellar cast on board for his projects, and his next is no different. For those uninitiated, 'Shootout At Wadala' was the last gangster drama he directed and now, he has donned the director's hat yet again for his upcoming movie. Gupta's 'Mumbai Saga' traces the evolution of Mumbai from Bombay. It will cover the events that led between the 80s and the 90s, as the city underwent a major transformation. 'Mumbai Saga' will feature John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Rohit Roy, and Amole Gupte among others in significant roles. MensXP got in touch with director Sanjay Gupta and we asked him how did he manage to pull off such a casting coup. On this, he told us, “To be very honest, it was very easy to get all of them on board. See, this is one of the advantages when you're a part of the industry for long 25 years as you can get your work done on phone. I just spoke with them over a call and everything just happened smoothly. We were not planning to announce it now but then the marketing team decided that it's the best time because I will be completing 25 years in the industry. It was pretty simple and I am very much grateful to all my actor who had the faith in me.” Our first cinematic take on gangster drama #MumbaiSaga is set in 80's & 90's notorious era. Happy to collaborate with @_SanjayGupta backed by power cast @TheJohnAbraham @emraanhashmi @bindasbhidu @SunielVShetty @rohitroy500 @GulshanGroverGG @prateikbabbar #AmolGupte@TSeries pic.twitter.com/KoEus0Q0E8 — Bhushan Kumar (@itsBhushanKumar) June 14, 2019 So, there's this preconceived notion that getting a number of male actors on board for a movie is easier than getting female actors tagging along for a project. We asked him if he believes in this idea. “I don't really think there will be any issues. Fortunately or unfortunately, I never had the challenge to do so. I would be in a better space to speak about it when I will be making a remake of 'Charlie's Angels' (laughs),” said Gupta. Sanjay asserted that 'Mumbai Saga' is one of his most ambitious projects till now. Well, the idea behind the movie is to show how things panned out for the city when the mills were eradicated from the landscape. We asked him how did he zero down to this idea for the movie. Elaborating on this, Sanjay said, “I was working on 'Shootout At Wadala' and I got in touch with Hussain Zaidi to come on board with me as a writer on this project to do some research. He had mentioned about some characters and that intrigued me. When I went deeper into researching about them, I realized that there's this explosive story which hasn't been told, which is how the landscape of the city changed from Bombay to Mumbai over the years and that only happened when the mills were shut down giving space to the malls and high rises. It all happened because of the nexus between mill owners, the underworld, politicians, and the cops and that's why I needed an ensemble of actors in my movie.” Considering the 80s being the backdrop, we somehow thought if Dawood's narrative would be a part of the movie. But, Sanjay clarified that the movie primarily focuses on Hindu gangsters. “The story starts after Dawood left Mumbai in 1984. The movie will focus on the events between the mid-80s to the mid-90s. It's more about the resurgence of the Hindu gangsters, mainly Maharashtrians.” They rose from the streets of Bombay to rule Mumbai. Presenting #MumbaiSaga 1st Look@TheJohnAbraham @emraanhashmi @_SanjayGupta @itsBhushanKumar @SunielVShetty @bindasbhidu @prateikbabbar @rohitroy500 @GulshanGroverGG #AmoleGupte @tseries @Whitefeatherfilms pic.twitter.com/c93bhAYa7v — Suniel Shetty (@SunielVShetty) June 14, 2019 Further, into the conversation, we took Sanjay a little back to the time of 'Jazbaa'. Despite having Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Irrfan on board, the movie fell flat at the box office. We asked if the failure of 'Jazbaa' affected the director. “It did really upset me and when I look back, I know what went wrong. When the trailer of 'Jazbaa' released, it did find the connect but after that, it all went downhill because of the way the marketing team promoted it as they had no clue. It's not a coincidence that all the marketing team professionals who were working on 'Jazbaa' have been fired today. Aishwarya was playing a mother and before the movie was about to release, they wanted to show her as someone who has just come from the 'Dhoom' sets which sent a wrong message to the people. It was a marketing fiasco but again, I am not saying it was a great movie and I am taking the blame. But, then there are some bad movies with great marketing that work wonders but then you have some movies that fall flat because of the marketing and 'Jazbaa' is a prime example of that,” said Gupta. From his debut as a director with the 1994 film 'Aatish' to his projects in 2019, the industry has been completely revamped and things have changed drastically. We asked him about the changes that the industry should still imbibe. On this, he told us, “I don't know what changes the industry should imbibe, but the biggest change that has come is in these two words, 'likes' and 'dislikes'. Suddenly, the whole industry is perception-driven and everything is about what's the perception of people about you, or how popular you are and what's your brand value. It has taken away the basic tenet of entertaining. There has been a resurgence of UP cinema as I say but those are the stories from the heartland and should be shown. But, having said that, why are we shying from big-budgeted actioner and movies? Even if I make a masterpiece, there will be a few critics or reviewers who wouldn't like it and I have learnt to live with it, but this will not deter me from making the movie I want to.” Now that he is completing 25 years, he summed up his journey for us. “My journey has just started and I have done things in the past that I feel I could have done in a better way but I have no regrets. It has been a wonderful journey and it has made me a better provider to my family,” he said and signed off.
  15. Late last night when passengers travelling on the Goa-Mumbai Air India flight found themselves stranded in Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, due to a several-hour delay in their flight take-off, they were left distressed and fuming. The passengers began raising slogans within the airport premises after a four-hour delay. At this point, a Goa Forward Party office-bearer Ketan Bhatikar, who was one of the passengers on the delayed flight, decided to reach out to Goa CM Pramod Sawant and seek his intervention in the matter. Stranded at #Mumbai's #ChhatrapatiShivaji airport late on June 13 night for several hours, protesting passengers of an #AirIndia Bombay to Goa flight were offered free meal from an airport restaurant at the instance of Goa CM #PramodSawant, a passenger said. Photo: IANS pic.twitter.com/pf6wwG1VhR — IANS Tweets (@ians_india) June 14, 2019 Upon narrating their troubles, Sawant didn't only intervene but also gave a pleasant surprise to all the hassled passengers. The CM arranged food for all the passengers from Kebab Grill restaurant, and also made sure that the flight took off ASAP. What makes this all the more special is the fact that Sawant was not even in Goa at that point. He managed to get all this done sitting in the national capital where he was on a work trip. Several passengers including Goans thanked Chief Minister @DrPramodPSawant for helping arrange flight and food, the passengers were stranded at Mumbai Airport on Thursday night due to lethargy of Air India and were helped by CM Pramod Sawant. pic.twitter.com/QRTPCRONBX — PrimeTVGoa (@PrimeTVGoa) June 14, 2019 "I tried calling Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant who answered my phone within two rings at 1.13 am. He called me back five times, arranged food for all passengers at Indian Kebab Grill, and exactly at 1.27 am, he told me that the flight was ready to take-off in 30 minutes. We finally reached Goa at around 3.30 am," Bhatikar informed IANS. That was a very kind and thoughtful gesture on the Goa CM's part and shows other ministers the best way of holding offices and serving people in the truest sense.
  16. Corporal Jyoti Prakash Nirala's death was an honourable one. He was martyred during a terrorist encounter in Jammu and Kashmir back in 2017. The late Garud commando, who gunned down five terrorists before sacrificing his own life for his motherland, was awarded the Ashok Chakra posthumously last year. Recently, his friends and fellow soldiers from the Indian Air Force's Garud Commando Force decided to honour his memory by lending a hand in his sister's wedding in Patna.

The collected amount was used to fund Nirala's sister's wedding.

  17. The ICC Champions Trophy Final between India and Pakistan took place on 18th June 2017, nearly 728 days before the two famous rivals face each other again in the initial stage of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Pakistan reigned supreme in a massive 180-run victory, but here we see how both the teams have progressed in ODIs since their last meeting in an ICC Tournament: India India have established themselves as a cricketing powerhouse since their defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final in 2017. With the top two batsmen in the world (as per ICC ODI Rankings) among the ranks of the top order batting lineup and three of the world's top 10 ODI bowlers in their team, Team India, along with hosts England, are the out and out favourites to lift the World Cup this year. Since the 2017 final, India boasts of a winning record of 38-13 in ODIs with big series wins in their tours of South Africa and the West Indies, as well as a dominant display at the Asia Cup last year, where India defeated Pakistan convincingly on two occasions. 2 in 2 for #TeamIndia as they clinch the ODI against Australia by 36 runs #CWC19 #INDvAUS ð®ð³ð®ð³ðð Full scorecard here https://t.co/T0QT6nNmtc pic.twitter.com/Ux2c5NkgXA — BCCI (@BCCI) June 9, 2019 India's batting lineup is feared by all teams. Skipper Virat Kohli, ranked 1st in the ODI Rankings and has the highest batting average in the world at 59 and since the 2015 World Cup, has maintained a whopping average of 78. Swashbuckling opener Rohit Sharma is ranked second in the world and he boasts of a career batting average of 48, and he has averaged 69 since the last World Cup. India's strengths are not limited to their batting as they boast of a bowling lineup featuring three of the top 10 bowlers in the world. Jasprit Bumrah, ranked no.1, is one of the best inswinging fast bowlers Indian cricket has seen recently. With middle-over wicket-takers in Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, ranked 7 and 8 respectively, the Men in Blue have a well-rounded bowling attack to support their mighty batting lineup. Key Players: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah. © Reuters Pakistan Pakistan have a reputation. Whether they like it or not, they are known as the most unpredictable team in this World Cup. On their day, everything clicks and they are capable of superlative performances but on other days their top-order collapses and their bowling provides no support. With a losing record of 15-21 in ODIs since the 2017 final, they might not be consistent enough to be a favourite in this tournament, but in no way can they be taken lightly. Their biggest strength is their top-order batting lineup. Opener Fakhar Zaman is the 10th best batsman in the world according to ICC Rankings with a career batting average of nearly 49, he is one of just six players in the history of the game to have scored a double century in ODI Cricket. Touted as Pakistan's answer to Virat Kohli, Babar Azam has been the most consistent batsman in the Pakistani batting lineup. Ranked 8th in the world he has a career batting average of 51. © Reuters However, opener Imam ul-Haq is the danger man in this Pakistani side. Having debuted in 2018, he has scored runs in 31 innings leading to a career batting average almost 58. He is an unknown entity for the Indian team, capable of causing substantial damage. With veteran Mohammad Hafeez and captain Sarfaraz Ahmed supplementing their top-order, Pakistan have an experienced and potent batting lineup. Uncharacteristically, however, Pakistan's bowling is somewhat of a weakness for the Men in Green. With no bowlers ranked in the top 25 of the ICC Rankings, their selection is often uncertain and performances are inconsistent. Mohammad Amir, however, did produce a career-best 5 for 30 spell against Australia in their last match and leg spinner Shadab Khan has the potential to cause all sorts of problems for Team India as he did against Virat Kohli's boys during the Champions Trophy final 2017 when he dismissed Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and the skipper himself.

However, their commendable form and Pakistan's consecutively poor fielding performances as well as uncertain bowling lineup, Team India are the firm favourites in their clash on Sunday. But complacency could prove to be fatal for the Men in Blue as they go head-to-head against an unpredictably explosive Pakistani side. World Cup Head-to-Head: India: 6 Pakistan: 0
  18. Boardrooms are battlegrounds in disguise, and anyone who has ever attended a meeting in one will agree. Talking about non-verbal elements in a boardroom that can make one appear more powerful, how one dresses definitely plays a huge role. Since the ruthless Indian Summers often don't let one wear formal suits replete with ties that can make one look sharp, seemingly trivial factors like the colour of your shirt or the fit of your pants can be crucial to your demeanour. Keeping that in mind, we have curated 5 boardroom looks for you that will definitely make you look more powerful in a Summer meeting, effortlessly so. 1. Sophisticated patterns © MensXP Unique but sophisticated patterned shirts in muted shades of blue will make you look superbly confident, while not making you compromise on the 'professional dressing' factor. Pair them with trousers that fit you well, and slip into a pair of tan leather Oxfords/Brogues. __ECOMPRODUCT__1__ __ECOMPRODUCT__2__ 2. Fitted Shirts © MensXP A blue-hued grey shirt that fits you like a glove when paired with well-fitted (but not tight) navy trousers will make you look ultra sleek, which translates to fluidity, essentially making you look like you're someone who can get things done. You can experiment with your shoes, as long as they are not from a loud colour palette. __ECOMPRODUCT__3__ 3. Half-sleeved Shirts © MensXP A more playful variation of the previous aesthetic with a half-sleeved powder blue shirt will fetch you equally impressive results. Plus, it's perfect for Summer. __ECOMPRODUCT__4__ 4.

Polo shirts © MensXP Polo shirts when paired with sharp trousers along with a brown belt and matching Oxfords/Brogues, will make you look like someone who not only is absolutely self-assured, but also likes to be on their toes.

  19. For a team that shocked hosts England earlier in the tournament, Pakistan looked a mere shadow of themselves during their disappointing 41-run loss against Australia in their fourth match at the ongoing ICC World Cup. From poor fielding, wayward bowling and irresponsible batting, Pakistan were overwhelmed in almost all the facets of the game. For a team that was tipped to scare the other teams by captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan's off-day didn't just leave their skipper red-faced, but would have left their fans really disappointed. After their loss, there was a lot of criticism aimed at Pakistan on the social media by the cricket fans. But, during the game, a Pakistani fan rose to stardom after his emotionless picture in the stands surfaced on the social media. Asif Ali had already become a subject of immense criticism after dropping Aaron Finch in the slip cordon in the 13th over. But, it was his second attempt at another opportunity that left Pakistan loyalists baffled. © Reuters In the 37th over, David Warner had already notched up his hundred and was looking set to accelerate the innings. But, his decision to play the upper-cut off Wahab Riaz presented an opportunity to Pakistan to send him back into the hut. But, to the sheer horror of Pakistani fans, Ali dropped an absolute sitter. As the cameras panned over him, Ali cut himself a sorry figure, appearing apologetic with hands on his hips. As the cameras remained stationed on him for a few seconds, the reaction of a Pakistani fan in the backdrop perfectly captured the mood of the team. Struggling to come to terms with the fact that Ali had dropped a regulation catch, the fan simply stood there with hands on his waist before turning away. This Guy is the Mood of whole Awaam watching the teams fielding.... pic.twitter.com/RK9OTGQlXb — Taimoor Zaman (@taimoorze) June 12, 2019 The International Cricket Council (ICC) also shared a gif of the Pakistani fan's reaction on the social media which struck a chord with the netizens. After Australia's innings, a Pakistani reporter tracked down the man and sat with him to know why he reacted the way he did. “It was just a straightforward catch. It was really disappointing to see it happen right in front of me getting dropped. It probably showed all over my face," he said. But why didn't he heckle the cricketer, especially when Ali was stationed metres away from him? We found him! ð Interview coming soon... pic.twitter.com/u2pFYvUrUm — ICC (@ICC) June 12, 2019 “I could see it land on his hand and then he dropped it, so it was really disappointing to see it happen right in front of me. And I couldn't say anything because he had just come off a family tragedy, so I didn't shout at him,” the Pakistani fan added. The fan was referring to Ali's 19-month-old daughter's demise earlier this May, after which he was recalled to the side for the World Cup tournament. While Pakistan lost the match, their fan won a lot of praise for his thoughtful gesture in the stands.
  20. In a development that comes as a pretty big and a happy surprise to the people on social media, especially the residents of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, the country is all set to open its doors to its first ever nightclub called the 'Halal' nightclub. Dubai and Beirut's famous club chain 'White' is already in talks and the place has been in the pipeline for a long time. The bar and the nightclub will cater to the needs of residents of the country and help them enjoy a well-deserved night-life, according to the Islamic norms. The news spread like wildfire on social media and people obviously have all sort of opinions. Bruh white jeddah night club is gonna be like 90% awkward people in it bruh. Wtf are you gonna do at a halal nightclub anyways? ð — . (@Lakofabettrname) June 12, 2019 Anyone interested to explain to me what is a Halal Disco/night club? I'm almost confused. — Walaa Al Ghussein (@WalaaGh) June 12, 2019 While some people are merely confused about this concept, many feel that the move is unnecessary. being civilized & modern does not need an opening of a night club with halal bar #justsaying hehehehe — Nurah AlSabah (@NurahMeshal) June 12, 2019 I can't believe that they're opening a nightclub in Jeddah! I mean wth it's right next to Mecca! oh wait the bar is HALAL lol.. — s (@xsuhyx) June 11, 2019 Also, some Twitter users are just interpreting the concept in their own way, of course.

  21. You read that right, folks. If you're a crazy Avengers fan and booking cool vacations is your thing, then this is the ultimate amalgamation for you. The gorgeous cabin which was Tony Stark's residence in the 'Endgame' chapter is now listed on Airbnb website, which means you can legit book it and stay in it. © Airbnb This is the same cabin where he's shown living with his wife and daughter and also where his funeral takes place in the movie. The lake-side, rustic looking cabin has 3 rooms and can house 6 guests, has to be booked for minimum 3 nights and initially the listing began from around 300 dollars but now it's already up to 800 dollars a night, which means around Rs 55,000 per night, which is steep but if you save well and have a group of 6 crazy friends up for this adventure, then maybe this can be a good plan. © Airbnb © Airbnb The location is pretty close to the Atlanta airport; so if you are visiting the US and you have the budget to squeeze in this tiny 3-day retreat, then may be you should think about it. Even if you're not a superhero in real life, doesn't mean anything should stop you from living like one.
  22. It has been more than two years since the Men in Blue lost by a massive 180 margin to Sarfaraz Ahmed's Pakistan cricket team in the final of the 2017 edition of Champions Trophy which took place at The Oval in London. Considered to be the most dominating force in the world of international cricket, Virat Kohli's boys were being viewed as the tournament favourites and were expected to take home the title for a record third time. But the Pakistan side were focused and had come to lift the trophy. After losing the toss, Pakistan were asked to bat first and thanks to some brilliant innings played by openers Fakhar Zaman (114) and Azhar Ali (59), their team total mounted up to 338 in 50 overs. On the other hand, bowler Mohammad Amir dismissed the best batsmen of the Indian side in Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, while Dhoni was dismissed by Hasan Ali. © Reuters Under such circumstances, when India desperately needed someone to control the bleeding and score big runs, all-rounder Hardik Pandya entered the field and was nearly successful in turning around the game in favour of his team. Hitting four 4's and six 6's during his innings, Pandya scored 76 runs off just 43 balls. However, a tiny miscommunication between Pandya and teammate Ravindra Jadeja led to the extremely unfortunate dismissal of the in-form batsman. In the 27th over, both batsmen came out of the crease for a single but Jadeja quickly turned his back on Pandya and saved himself, leaving Pandya in the middle of the pitch with Mohammad Hafeez running him out. This led to a fuming Pandya being forced to exit the field, visibly upset at his teammate. “When you are in that situation, nothing goes through your mind. That time it was just anger because I was in the zone… I went into the dressing room and started throwing things.” Pandya admits in the video interview with the International Cricket Council (ICC). “I went to 'Jaddu' and said 'I am extremely sorry. It was not intentional, no matter what happened, I am not that guy'.” “He is kind of a chill person who doesn't take a lot of pressure on himself,” Ravindra Jadeja praised Pandya in the same video. “He is kind of a rockstar, I would say.” It is such a camaraderie between the members of the Indian cricket team, one of the most effective and powerful sides in international cricket, that continues to bring in success for them.
  23. Shahid Kapoor is all set to entice his fans with his performance in his upcoming film, 'Kabir Singh'. Being touted as an intense love story, the film revolves around Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor) who fall in love with Preeti (Kiara Advani), his junior in college. Well, things change when their love story doesn't pan out the way they wanted it to. There's painful heartbreak and guess what? Shahid turns into a lovelorn man, trapped in the world of drugs and alcohol. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film is a remake of the popular Telugu movie 'Arjun Reddy'. For the film, Shahid really had to push himself, considering the body transformation the role required. At the age of 38, projecting a college boy with a chocolatey charm isn't that easy, but Shahid managed to pull off the character of young Kabir pretty well. You have to look a certain way to be convincing as a college boy on the big screen and Shahid left no stone unturned to ensure he looked apt for the role. For the character, he had to gain 8 kilos and then lose 14 kilos. View this post on Instagram As a star one is so conditioned to showcasing oneself at ones best. But as an actor one has to have the guts to show yourself at your worst. #kabirsingh in my blood. Hope you feel him too. A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Apr 11, 2019 at 12:45am PDT “I wanted to look boyish for the younger portions to play a medical student. I didn't want a perfect body; one that was manicured or chiselled because that's not how college-going boys look. Seventy-five per cent of what you eat depends on your diet. I don't drink alcohol and am a vegetarian. Generally, I live a healthy lifestyle. To lose weight, I needed to severely cut the calories I consumed, and train harder. Even though we were training, the look was achieved more via the diet; not so much in the gym. We had two months to lose weight. I didn't want to rush into anything since that is not healthy.” Shahid told Mid-Day. Well, we can say a lot of hard work has gone into the making of this film and fans are waiting with bated breath to see Shahid nailing the character on the big screen. 'Kabir Singh' releases on 21st June 2019. Stay tuned for more such updates.
  24. Exactly a week from now will mark the one month anniversary since the last episode of 'Game of Thrones' was aired across the globe. While fans have not yet been able to get over the shocker that was the final season of 'GOT', it seems that the makers are not in the mood to let the fans get over the pain and disappointment any time soon. © HBO After HBO submitted the dissatisfactory final episodes from its highly criticised final season of 'Game of Thrones' for Emmy consideration, fans have been left furious. They simply cannot wrap their heads around why the worst episodes from the worst 'GOT' season were sent for the nominations. © HBO According to a TV Guide report, 'GOT' Season 8's only appealing episodes, 'Winterfell' and 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' have been overlooked in favour of the worst-rated episodes under the writing and directing categories. © HBO HBO submitted Miguel Sapochnik's name for 'Game of Thrones' season 8's 'The Long Night', David Nutter for 'The Last of the Starks', and DB Weiss and David Benioff for 'The Iron Throne', in the Best Directing category. Benioff and Weiss' script for the finale - 'The Iron Throne' - was the only submission in the Best Writing category. Fans are fuming at all the possibilities that this presents. so who thought it was a good idea for hbo to submit 8x06 of game of thrones for an emmy nomination in best writing category when this episode is of the most boring season finales to ever exist pic.twitter.com/UkI5dGFPdG — ellie (@odairannies) June 11, 2019 TFW you realize the best episode of #GameOfThrones' last season—"A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," obviously—is submitted for neither Directing nor Writing at the #Emmys. pic.twitter.com/PpSDtxjI4q — Myles McNutt (@Memles) June 10, 2019 you: surely it's been a month and you've run out of new Game of Thrones things to complain about me: THEY DIDN'T SUBMIT A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS FOR OUTSTANDING WRITING OR DIRECTING AT THE EMMYS — Victoria Edel (@victoriaedel) June 10, 2019 The #GameofThrones team submitted their episodes for writing and directing Emmy categories and none of the ones submitted are the best one of the season.

  25. Drake, who has churned out hit songs like 'In my feelings', is also a big fan of the NBA. When not producing songs, he's an active spectator at the NBA matches. He was last seen at the Golden State Warriors versus Toronto Raptors in Game Five of the NBA Finals, where the Golden State Warriors won. © Getty Images But here's why this match is so important: Drake wore an erotic timepiece that said, "I'd love to kiss your p***y.” © Getty Images To be precise, he wore a black Nike T-shirt and track pants with a $750,000 (which translates to 5,20,06,875 rupees, which is almost 5.2 crores) Richard Mille '69 Tourbillon Erotic' watch which has bars like a cinema box that you can twist to your fancy. The bar has settings with random sentences broken down so that you mix and match. The top bar can be changed to, “I want to,” “I need to,” “I long to,” “I lust to,” “I'd love to” and “Let me.” The middle bar adds in “explore,” “taste,” “kiss,” “arouse,” “devour” and “caress.” And the bottom bar gets into the specifics: “you tonight,” “your lips,” “your body,” “your n*****s,” “your p***y” and “you madly.” These are end number of sentences you could form on the dial to flatter your woman. © Richard Mille According to the brand website's description: "Activated on request by pressing a button at 10 o'clock, it plainly reveals the wearer's deepest desires.” Sounds like a horny watch which, although rather expensive, is making a statement, and we're just wondering if Kiki is impressed.
