  1. Vicky Kaushal is the actor who is giving our classic Bollywood heroes a run for their money. The man who started out with a dream in his heart and treaded on an unknown path has come a long way from his 'Masaan' days. His recent performance as DJ Sandz and a path-breaking record with 'Uri' has made him the favourite man of the moment and he is well aware of it. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) on Mar 20, 2019 at 1:47am PDT Vicky is celebrating his 31st birthday today and is ringing it amongst his family and friends. View this post on Instagram The smile on my face is because of the people you see in the reflection behind. Thank You guys. Also, feeling so damn blessed reading all your wonderful wishes. Thank You so much for this beautiful shower of love and blessings. Lots of love and a big hug to each one of you. And that btw, on the table, was my birthday cake! ðâ¤ï¸ð A post shared by Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) on May 16, 2019 at 2:12am PDT We stumbled upon some unseen, raw footage of his theatre days, which are notable performances in their own league. One of the videos shows Vicky in a theatrical production where he's seen essaying a comic character. Another short clip shows a talented Vicky playing the role of a rough police officer misbehaving with a woman. This has a carefree Vicky drinking with his friends and contemplating a plan to commit suicide. Interestingly, he was also a part of Vasan Bala's short movie 'Geek Out' . For any Vicky Kaushal fan, this is a gold mine right here.
  2. Sweden's football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made a name for himself as a notorious athlete, who looks for opportunities to get involved in scuffles and fights on the field only to boast his imposing frame. Throughout his professional football career in Europe, during which Ibrahimovic played with some of the best clubs in the world including Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona, despite his brilliance as a player, he was more famous for his cheeky elbows to the face, flying kicks to the face and headbutts to the face. When the Swede finally decided to take his talents to the States and joined the Major League Soccer franchise LA Galaxy in 2018, he was considered to be the biggest name in the league as he was. However, Ibrahimovic did not get rid of his habit of looking for a fight and began to mess with the players there as well. Just a couple of days ago, in a match against NYC FC, Zlatan bumped into the rival goalkeeper, Sean Johnson while trying to score a goal. Soon after, the 6-foot-5 footballer got his hand around Johnson's neck following which the two players fell, with the American crying out in pain almost as if Zlatan had choked him severely. A bizarre incident in MLS involving Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sean Johnson. The result? A yellow card each. pic.twitter.com/sPoIeGfSG9 — ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) May 12, 2019 These days, athletes are known to exaggerate the contact and 'flop' in order to make the referee take notice of the foul and none of the cameras picked up on whatever Ibrahimovic did with the hand, the fact that the Swede had the audacity to do something like that, must be taken into account and the league must take an action against him to make a statement, that no matter who you are, you are not above the league. Secondly, and probably a lot more important than Zlatan's actions from the day before yesterday, the need to punish him is crucial, because the rest of the players have begun to believe that Ibrahimovic has been receiving special treatment from the organisation. And even when Zlatan approached Real Salt Lake defender, Nedum Onuoha inside his locker room, after trash talking with him on the field moments ago, the league decided to remain silent on the whole thing. In the post-game conference, Onuoha went on to call him a thug and expressed that he felt as if the MLS was providing Zlatan with preferential treatment.
  3. Continuing his fine run this season, Lewis Hamilton clinched the first-place finish at the Circuit de Catalunya in the Spanish Grand Prix on 12th May. The Brit finished ahead of his Mercedes teammate Valterri Bottas and Max Verstappen who finished second and third respectively. While the top spots at the podium once again eluded Ferrari, Mercedes extended their record-breaking run to five-successive one-two finishes this season. Attempting to take a sixth world championship and third in a row, Hamilton's form is ominously strong and his 76th career victory was a befitting testimony to that. If his brilliant showing on the race track had everyone singing his praise, Hamilton's touching gesture for his special fan further won over fans. © Reuters Ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, Hamilton received a special video from Harry Shaw who has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. According to reports, the five-year-old boy was recently given just one week to live. The video shows Harry, wearing a Mercedes cap and lying next to a signed Hamilton picture in his London hospital bed, giving a message to the Brit driver: "Hello Lewis Hamilton. Good luck winning the race in Spain and thank you for all of the gifts. Lots of love from Harry and goodbye". View this post on Instagram Harry, you don't know how much this message means to me buddy. Thank you so much, you are my inspiration today Harry. I will try to make you proud. You are such a strong boy, I wish I was as strong as you, I wanted the world to see how strong you are and ask everyone to send their best wishes and prayers to you during this hard time. Sending you love Harry. God bless you. Your friend, Lewis #keepfighting #nevergiveup #wewinandwelosetogether A post shared by Lewis Hamilton (@lewishamilton) on May 12, 2019 at 2:59am PDT Sharing the kid's video on his Instagram handle, Hamilton said: "Harry, you don't know how much this message means to me buddy. Thank you so much, you are my inspiration today Harry. I will try to make you proud. You are such a strong boy, I wish I was as strong as you, I wanted the world to see how strong you are and ask everyone to send their best wishes and prayers to you during this hard time. Sending you love Harry. God bless you. Your friend, Lewis". And, Hamilton did make Shaw proud by winning the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday. Following his triumph, Hamilton also dedicated his victory to the youngster who inspired him to secure a podium finish. "I got a great message from this young kid called Harry and he just became my spirit angel," the Mercedes driver said after the race. © Reuters "When I woke up this morning, I was a bit lost and wondering how today was going to go. Then I saw that message and I was like, 'I see you, Harry, I've got you'. I was looking for inspiration and something to grab to, so I dedicate today's race to him. You try to go out there and do something for someone. It doesn't always turn out as well as it has but I hope he is watching. I will be sending him a message shortly after this, and we are going to try and do something special for him," he added. Well, Hamilton did reveal that he will try to do something special for Shaw, but no one would have possibly anticipated what was in store for the youngster. In a heartfelt gesture, Hamilton and Mercedes sent one of their Formula One (F1) cars to Shaw's home in Redhill. The lucky kid, cradled in his father James' arm, was then shown around Hamilton's F1 car by a Mercedes employee. .@LewisHamilton has brought the smile back to a boy fighting the final days of his young life. Hamilton dedicated his Grand Prix victory to Harry Shaw from Surrey. The Mercedes team hastily arranged for one of their cars to park outside Harry's home as @samholdertv reports pic.twitter.com/qdphRn3MP8 — ITV London (@itvlondon) May 13, 2019 Owing to his rare medical condition, Shaw was outdoors for the first time in three weeks. The youngster was also presented with Hamilton's winning trophy from the race in Barcelona and a pair of the world champion's racing gloves. Apart from that, there was also a personal video message of support recorded by Hamilton which was shown to Shaw. "I cannot describe how much it means to us all that Lewis won the race for Harry, and then dedicated it to Harry, too," his father James Shaw said. "At a tremendously difficult time in our lives, this has provided us with a big boost, and a big smile. Harry couldn't believe that Lewis Hamilton was talking about him, and had dedicated the race to him. He now thinks that Lewis is his absolute best friend, which, for a five-year-old boy, is amazing. Harry loves cars, and although he is frail, he was asking about the exhaust pipe," he added. © Twitter/@HarrysPledge5 Over the years, we've seen numerous sportspersons dominating their respective fields and earning laurels. But, far away from their titles, trophies and accolades, it's their conduct and demeanour away from sports - like the touching gesture of Hamilton for a young cancer-stricken boy - that truly makes a sportsperson great.
  4. It's raining sequels in Bollywood right now. It can also be said that sequels have now become a sure shot formula to score success at the box office. The latest one to join the league is Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa'. Earlier, there were reports about the sequel but now we have a confirmation about the same. Yes, you heard that right. The horror-comedy superhit will have a part two and we cannot help but hope for more twists and turns. T-Series honcho Bhushan Kumar will be producing the film and interestingly, he has got the first narration from director Farhad Samji. A source close to the development told MensXP, “Farhad Samji is both writing and directing the film. He has given the first narration to Bhushan Kumar and he has liked the idea. Currently, Farhad is working on the script and is also looking for a fresh cast this time. The title has always been registered and it's called 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2'.” Is Akshay a part of the sequel? Well, then the answer is no. Our source also told us, “Akshay is, for sure, not a part of 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2'. The makers will look for a new cast altogether. Right now, the latest development is this and Bhushan Kumar is quite interested in the idea of this sequel.” The original film was an official remake of the Malayalam hit film 'Manichitrathazhu'' starring Mohanlal and Shobana. Director Farhad is presently working on 'Housefull 4' and it features Akshay Kumar. It will be interesting to see who will step into the shoes of Akshay Kumar. Any guesses? Do let us know in the comments below. Apart from 'Bhool Bhulaiya 2', the producer is already remaking BR Chopra's 1978 drama 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' starring Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, and Ananya Panday and Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1975 comedy 'Chupke Chupke', in which Rajkummar Rao will reprise Dharmendra's role. Stay tuned in for more such Bollywood updates.
  5. There is no doubt about the fact that the game of cricket is highly male-dominated and the bigger portion of the cricket-watching audience prefer to watch men's cricket rather than women's cricket. However, this does not make cricketers like Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj less entertaining than Virat Kohli or Mahendra Singh Dhoni. All four of the lot have been dominating throughout their professional careers and continue to do so, even now when younger talents are entering the competition to lock horns with them. Recently, the 2018 ICC 'Women's Cricketer' of the year, Mandhana conveyed a rather important message for the entire cricketing world with a little bit of help from the Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC): Well said, @mandhana_smriti ðpic.twitter.com/xprYp9GFwb — ICC (@ICC) May 9, 2019 “I no longer see myself as a woman cricketer but simply as a cricketer,” said the young athlete. “Why should there be labels when none are required?” This clearly agitated someone, who supposedly is a cricket fan from Pakistan, who then decided to mock women's cricket, calling them “not fun to watch” and straight out “ugly”: I KNOW THE HATE WILL COME TOWARDS... ME AND MANY PISS DRINKERS FROM INDIA WILL AGREE WITH ME TO BUT WILL TALK SHIT. BUT FACT IS WOMEN CRICKET IS BS AND NOT FUN TO WATCH !!! THATS WHY U JUST CANNOT COMPARE IT WITH MEN'S CRICKET JUST CANNOT.......PLUS ALL THESE WOMEN ARE UGLY — WaPlarkaa (@Rockyenzo1) May 9, 2019 “I know the hate will come towards... Me and many piss drinkers from india will agree with me to but will talk shit.” said @Rockyenzo1. “But fact is women cricket is BS and not fun to watch !!! Thats why u just cannot compare it with men's cricket just cannot.......Plus all these women are ugly.” Hate mails and social media trolls these days have become as common as weed in the grass and organisations like the ICC seldom respond to such messages, however, this one tweet seemed to have irked the Council, who decided to him a lesson: It's 2019. Be better. Bye! ð#blocked pic.twitter.com/PPsvvgeT8f — ICC (@ICC) May 9, 2019 Short, sweet, impactful. Soon after, the real fans of the game, you know, the non-sexist kind, came to the support of cricketers like Mandhana and joined the ICC in trolling the troll: Savage ðð — Junaid Jabbar (@JunaidShaikhCA) May 9, 2019 Well done ICC. No room for narrow minded people. This shows their upbringing and their cultural conditioning. Such kind of people need this kind of treatment. — Vishal (@vishallovesall) May 10, 2019 Aukaat dikhayenge di usse apni.ððððð¤£ð¤£ — Rahul Kumar (@rk5444) May 9, 2019 @Rockyenzo1 why you gotta disgrace Pakistan like this on a public forum? — Shaikh Rasheeds Cat (@shaikhs_cat) May 9, 2019
  6. 'Brahmastra', starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Amitabh Bachchan is surely one of the most anticipated projects and movie buffs are waiting to see it on the big screen. We all know that Ranbir pours his soul into all the movies he becomes a part of. Considering 'Brahmastra' is one high budget venture, Ranbir is leaving no stone unturned and has completely sunk his teeth into the character. The 'Barfi' actor has already started prepping for the next schedule of the film. Director Ayan Mukerji took to Instagram to share one of the behind-the-scenes videos where Ranbir is seen practising moves with a movement and culture expert group from Germany, Ido Portal. Ayan shared the video and wrote, "Shiva Sessions Last Saturday, Berlin. Prep work for our next shooting schedule is on... and once again, our path led us to one of our most special collaborators on this journey - Ido Portal. (More on his role in helping Ranbir build his performance in another post...) For now, some random moments from our weekend brainstorming session with Ido... #preplife #traveldiaires #brahmastra."

For now, some random moments from our weekend brainstorming session with Ido... #preplife #traveldiaires #brahmastra A post shared by Ayan Mukerji (@ayan_mukerji) on May 7, 2019 at 8:08am PDT We are sure that Ranbir would create an impact on the audience with his performance in the film. In the video, you can also see Alia Bhatt recording the whole session. For the uninitiated, Ranbir will be seen playing the role of Shiva whereas Alia will be playing the role of Isha. Fans are wanting to see Ranbir and Alia romancing each other on the silver screen. The movie recently hit the headlines after Ayan decided to change the release date. It was initially slated to release in December 2019 and now, it has been moved to Summer 2020. The film also features Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Dimple Kapadia in key roles. Stay tuned in for more such Bollywood updates.
  7. 'Sacred Games' is one of those shows that's highly appreciated for its dark and gritty content. Fans went into the tizzy after they saw the first season and now, they are waiting with bated breath for the second season as well. Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte did a brilliant job in portraying their director's vision throughout the series. And for those who have seen the first season, they would now be looking forward to knowing the story of Ganesh Gaitonde and how Sartaj Singh decodes it all. With fans clamouring for the second season to air already, we tried to find some exclusive details regarding just that. According to one of our sources, the show will start streaming online from July end or the first week of August. Another source gave us more exclusive details about the show being delayed saying, "Netflix is going through it again and that's why the delay. It seems like the platform isn't happy with the final outcome. Rumours suggest that this season isn't that great as the first one. Well, only time will tell if the audience likes the show or not but we all have high hopes." The show has been shot in India and foreign locations including Cape Town. Anurag Kashyap has yet again taken charge for Nawazuddin's portions, and 'Masaan' director Neeraj Ghaywan has replaced Vikramaditya Motwane to direct Sartaj Singh's part. Are you excited for the new season for the show? Let us know in the comments below.
  8. When Sunny Deol's pictures with BJP Chief Amit Shah splashed all over the internet a few days ago, everyone made the obvious assumption of the legendary actor joining the BJP. Well, today he has actually joined the ruling party and has been inducted as a member, following the steps of Hema Malini and his father Dharmendra, who are already members of the BJP. Sunny 'paaji' joining the party has ended up being the only thing catching everyone's fancy on the social media today. Next time an F16 heads towards the Indian border... #SunnyDeol pic.twitter.com/fCDZHhDIOk — Raj Shekhar Jha (@rajshekharTOI) April 23, 2019 His fans are actually believing that Tara Singh from 'Gadar' is a real hero now.

  9. In an unexpected news last week, Sony's lead architect Mark Cerny dropped a bunch of new details about Sony's upcoming console, the PlayStation 5. From the looks for it, it appears as though the PS5 will be the most powerful gaming console ever built. But that's only until you hear what Microsoft is said to be cooking for us. If the rumours are to be believed, it looks like Microsoft is readying a beast of a console dubbed 'Xbox Anaconda'. We're not entirely sure about the innards of this next-gen Xbox console, but it certainly looks like it'll dwarf PS5's AMD Ryzen CPU, RAM, and SSD. © Unsplash Ainsley Bowden, founder and head editor of Seasoned Gaming, tweeted out saying that Microsoft's Anaconda will be more advanced than its rival. It was apparently confirmed by 'multiple insiders'. Exactly how Anaconda will outperform PS5 is still something that remains to be seen, but we're very excited to how it's all going to go down. If we're to guess though, we think the next-gen Xbox console would have a faster CPU, a more powerful GPU, extra RAM, and more. There are a lot of unanswered Yes, very exciting indeed. We just hope they'll avoid some of the mistakes they made with the last console. © Microsoft Will it manage to outperform PS5 and become more successful? Honestly, there's no guarantee of success. Think about it, the Xbox One is currently the most powerful console on the market, yet the PS4 has outsold it by a significant margin. Nonetheless, it's an exciting time for all the console gamers, and we just can't to wait to see what's in store for us.
  10. 'Gully Boy' frontman MC Sher stole a lot of limelight from leading stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the movie. He came as Murad's mentor and stepped up as that voice of reason that turned Murad's life around for the better. © Excel Entertainment The man behind the terrific performance of rapper MC Sher was Siddhant Chaturvedi who portrayed the role with conviction. Ever since the film's release, people have spoken of him in the same breath as Ranveer and Alia, whenever someone thought of Zoya Akhtar's blockbuster musical drama 'Gully Boy'. © Excel Entertainment Since the film's release, Siddhant became a household name with his more than perfect debut, while girls simply couldn't get enough of him. With so many people wanting more of MC Sher, and others wondering about the rapper's own backstory, struggles and future after Murad's raging popularity, reports are now rife that producer Ritesh Sidhwani and Zoya Akhtar have decided to create a spin-off around MC Sher becoming an overnight sensation, which will help smoothen out all the ruffled feathers. © Excel Entertainment “The film is entirely based on Siddhant's character and traces MC Sher's journey to becoming a hero. This will also give the makers a chance to delve deeper into the hip-hop culture and you can expect many engaging rap battles,” a source was quoted as saying. © Excel Entertainment This has come as good news for hundreds of MC Sher and Siddhant Chaturvedi fans who will now get to behold the rapper's life story in a standalone movie, who played the role of a terrific mentor and an even better friend in 'Gully Boy'. We cannot wait to watch his side of the story on the big screen. What about you?
  11. Shah Rukh Khan, one of the most refined actors in the industry adds another feather to his cap. The 'Zero' superstar received an honorary doctorate in philanthropy by the University of law, London. He'd already received the same honour from the University of Bedfordshire and the University of Edinburg and now, it was the University of Law's turn to honour the deserving actor. © Twitter The graduation ceremony was held on the 4th of April with close to 350 students attending it in London. The University also tweeted photos of King Khan receiving the honour and also wrote: “Our next Honorary Doctorate goes to actor, producer and philanthropist Shah Rukh Khan (@IamSRK), in recognition of his work in championing human rights, access to justice and crime reduction #ULawGrad #SRK #ShahRukhKhan #ULaw.” Our next Honorary Doctorate goes to actor, producer and philanthropist Shah Rukh Khan (@IamSRK), in recognition of his work in championing human rights, access to justice and crime reduction #ULawGrad #SRK #ShahRukhKhan #ULaw pic.twitter.com/mm8ZmBAdJI — The University of Law (@UniversityofLaw) 4 April 2019 We're almost ready to begin the #ULawGrad ceremony with @brawnm, @iamsrk, Professor Andrea Nollent and Guy Beringer QC pic.twitter.com/ZMFWi94uBl — The University of Law (@UniversityofLaw) 4 April 2019 .@IamSRK is ready for the #ULawGrad ceremony #srk #ShahRukhKhan pic.twitter.com/iunMcAZNne — The University of Law (@UniversityofLaw) 4 April 2019 Thank u for the honour @universityoflaw & my best wishes to the graduating students.

He mentioned the work that's done by his organisation, Meer Foundation, that primarily works towards empowering acid attack survivors. “The acid attack victims are the bravest women I have met in my life. They have suffered tremendously.” He mentioned in his acceptance speech. Honorary Doctorate Shah Rukh Khan giving his acceptance speech today at #ULawGrad.

One cannot speak about their charitable acts because it loses its purpose. I have been privileged to be able to use my status as a public personality to champion causes close to my heart. I actively participate with the causes of women empowerment, rehabilitation of the underprivileged and basic human rights.” the actor added in his speech. "I actively participate with the causes of women empowerment, rehabilitation of the underprivileged and basic human rights. I firmly believe that I have to give back to the world that has given me so much. I am humbled with this honorary doctorate bestowed upon me and would like to thank everyone involved for choosing me," he mentioned in his speech. © Twitter Shah Rukh was also honoured with the Crystal Award for his work towards acid attack survivors, at the World Economic Forum 2018, in Davos. We believe every celebrity should do their bit towards society and we have amidst us an excellent example of the same!
  12. In an industry which should thrive on gender fluidity because of equal opportunities, there is still gender disparity that's visible from every archaic lens. Recently, after the success of her film 'Luka Chuppi', Kriti Sanon, the lead actress, spoke about how the entire credit for the film went to the lead male actor Kartik Aaryan and it seemed absolutely unfair. According to her Kartik was lauded for bringing the audience to the theatre to watch the film and she said this is always the case where the male actor steals the show mostly, when the female has an equal part to play for the success of the film. © Pintrest "This business of overlooking the leading lady has been going on for a while and it's so unfair. I am glad this conversation is finally happening." she told a leading entertainment publication in an interview. "It's logical to talk about only the male protagonist when the leading lady doesn't have a lot to do, but when they are both carrying a film on their shoulders, the credit should be equally shared. Everybody deserves a mention," she added. © AA Films The actress had fair points to address because they've been visible since the genesis of the industry. For the success of every movie, the male actor is always brought forward for his commendable work, while the actress is criticised for what she was wearing or how she carried herself out in the movie, completely objectifying her, istead of paying heed to her acting prowess. It's time we change the dialogue of how we perceive our films and make them more gender equal when we talk about them, especially if the actor and actress both have an equal role in the movie. Kriti also spoke about gender pay disparity in Bollywood and said it needs to be equal to set a good example to the country. “Actors are also paid more than their female counterparts in Bollywood. Remuneration should be in sync with two things — your role in the film and your capacity to pull in the audience. There have been instances in the past when actresses have been paid more than their hero,” She opened about disparities in gender pay in Bollywood with a popular entertainment publication. © AA Films I think Kriti is certainly moving talks towards a more progressive standpoint. Equal pay has been a fight in our country since long and if an industry like Bollywood demonstrates it within their own realm, it will set a good example for other industries to make equal pay more sustainable and possible. While we're grateful to Kriti for bringing up such pertinent points and addressing them, we hope more actresses come forward and talk about things that really matter. Kriti is currently working alongside Arjun Kapoor on Ashutosh Gowarikar's 'Panipat', which is about the third battle of Panipat.
  13. One of the newest Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members, who also happened to be one of the better batters for the Indian cricket team, Gautam Gambhir, found himself in a Twitter battle against Omar Abdullah, when the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir made a rather controversial statement hinting that the state had bargained for a separate Prime Minister and President and are hopeful to get them. Ever since the comments were made, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has addressed them without taking Abdullah's name. "He says we will take the clock back and replicate the situation before 1953 and there will be two Prime Ministers in India, Kashmir will have its separate PM,” the Prime Minister said at a Hyderabad rally. “(The Congress) must answer how its ally can say such a thing." Standing in full support with the leader of his party, Gambhir decided to join the war of words this afternoon. He tweeted: "Omar Abdullah wants a separate PM for J&K and I want to walk on oceans! Omar Abdullah wants a separate PM for J&K and I want pigs to fly! More than a separate PM Omar Abdullah needs some sleep followed by a strong coffee!

  14. There is no greater joy for a teacher than to see his/her students living their dreams, and touching new heights of success. A teacher meets her success through every achievement and milestone her students touch, and experiences the joys of life through their success stories. A similar story unravelled some 30,000 feet above air for a play school teacher named Sudha Satyan, who was aboard a plane flying to Chicago in the US. When she was all settled in for the journey, the in-flight announcements from the pilots revealed that Sudha was being flown to the US by a Captain Rohan Bhasin, and she wondered if it was the student from 30 years ago. Just imagine that moment when she hears “Capt Rohan Bhasin” Your son must have been thrilled. Indeed #WarmsTheCocklesOfMyHeart . — Louvina Andrade (@LouvinaA) March 25, 2019 The 3-year-old zealot had introduced himself as a 'Captain Rohan Bhasin' to Sudha, during their first introduction, and this possible coincidence 30 years down the lane from that incident made Sudha reach out to the cabin crew and inquire how she could get in touch with the captain. Turns out Captain Rohan Bhasin of Air India was indeed the same boy Sudha Satyan had taught many moons ago at her play school, and he really did fulfill his dream of becoming a 'Captain' after all. #WarmsTheCocklesOfMyHeart.... During Playschool admission, the teacher asked my son his name. Nonchalantly he answered, "Capt Rohan Bhasin". And he was just 3. And today, the same teacher was enroute to Chicago. And he was indeed the Captain. ð¤ð¨‍âï¸#StudentTeacherReunionâ¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/nGAqZSKUnF — Nivedita Bhasin (@nivedita_bhasin) March 24, 2019 Captain Rohan's mother, who is also an Air India Pilot, shared a heartwarming post of their reunion with a then and now photograph on Twitter, and wrote: 'During playschool admission, the teacher asked my son his name. Nonchalantly he answered, "Capt Rohan Bhasin". And he was just 3. And today, the same teacher was enroute to Chicago. And he was indeed the Captain.' The reunion was teary and full of happy smiles, but it seems Twitter is all for this reunion, and cannot stop gushing over it.

Greater still is that the teacher remembered his name. That I think was the best Gurudakshina ever in recent years.

  15. 'PUBG Mobile', as we all know, is currently dealing with a lot of backlash from the authorities in the country for being “addictive”. The situation was escalated to a point where people started getting arrested for playing the game. Amidst all these controversies, it's been reported that Tencent has now decided to restrict the game to only 6 hours of play time a day. As soon as you hit the time limit, you'll be shown a message saying, “You've played the game for 6h today. Please come back later”. Here, take a look - © Indian Noob The game will reportedly show you a warning message after 2 and 4 hours play time before reaching the 6-hour limit. There's no official word from Tencent as of now, but looking at the screenshot, it looks like you won't be able to get into a game for the next 24 hours once you reach the 6-hour limit. The play time restriction isn't showing up for all the players just yet. We couldn't spot this “Health Reminder” option in our phones, so there's no way to confirm this. Though the screenshot looks legit, we'd still suggest you take this with a grain of salt. We'll hold on to our thoughts until we get an official statement from Tencent.
  16. While revamping utility and public structures has been the need of the hour, the New Delhi Railway Station can't be left untouched for long. Just a month ago, Mathura Railway Station got an absolutely new look and now it's time for Delhi to literally shine. The station was given an artsy feel, rich in culture and heritage and now every time we're catching a train from there, we'd be afraid to miss it, because it's done up quite elaborately and beautifully. The station building looks quite vibrant with some colourful patterns strewn across, with wall art and geometrical designs all over the ceilings. It really looks like we're amidst a colourful little cultural village. The station has also upgraded its public facilities like LED lights, escalators and LCD displays, all over. © Twitter The station will be equipped with solar panels for deriving energy from them and it'll be kept clean throughout. Well, Delhi isn't the only station that has been revamped. Apart from Mathura, there is also Haridwar, Jaipur and Lonavla. They've all been beatified and upgraded just as Delhi and Mathura. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the development of the station: बदलता भारत, बदलतॠरà¥à¤²à¤µà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤§à¤¾à¤¯à¥à¤, सà¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° सà¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¯ सॠभरा नठदिलà¥à¤²à¥ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ नया à¤à¤à¤°à¥à¤·à¤ रà¥à¤ª यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ विशà¥à¤µà¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤°à¥à¤¯ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¹à¤¸à¤¾à¤¸ à¤à¤°à¤¾ रहा हà¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/rUiirbwjDj — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 14 March 2019 The new look of the Railway station went down pretty well with most people and they took to Twitter to praise the efforts made by the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation.

Or you can just check out these pictures here: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for revamping and developing such structures, will invest about Rs 7,500 crore, for redeveloping close to 50 railway stations across India. Simultaneously with that, they will also have a beatification drive alongside, which will entail paintings and art along the premises of the station. We're glad the Indian Railways are making an effort to revamp old stations and after airports, this was pretty much the need of the hour.
  17. Whether it's the Big Bash League (BBL) or their domestic competitions, the Australian cricket has produced some of the most memorable moments in cricket in recent times. From spectacular catches to bizarre dismissals, the cricket fans continue to be treated to the never-before-seen moments on the field. Last month, Australia's Heather Graham claimed one of the most bizarre wickets when New Zealand's Katie Perkins played a shot which ballooned off the bat of her teammate Katey Martin at the non-striker's end and went straight into the hands of the Oz bowler. But, if that wasn't bizarre enough, Australian batsman Steve O'Keefe became the latest victim of a chaotic cricket moment. During a Sheffield Shield clash between Victoria and New South Wales, O'Keefe came out to bat with a runner on Day 2 of the match at Drummoyne Oval after tweaking his hamstring. But, unfortunately, the former New South Wales captain forgot that he had his buddy running for him wide off the pitch. Steve O'Keefe came out to bat with a runner... Then he forgot he had a runner ð#SheffieldShield | #NSWvVIC pic.twitter.com/Uz6BQAki7o — #7Cricket (@7Cricket) March 13, 2019 After taking guard, the 34-year-old punched the ball towards mid-on for a quick single. But, rather than staying put at the crease and allowing his runner - Nick Larkin - to sneak a single for him, O'Keefe suffered a 'brainfade' as he began sprinting down the pitch. As Jon Holland made a diving stop, both O'Keefe and his runner were at the non-striker's end. And, finally realising his blunder, O'Keefe turned and tried to run all the way back to the striker's end before Holland's throw caught him short at the crease. While the commentators repeatedly called it a "calamity", it was arguably one of the most comical dismissals you'd see on the cricket field. Was most likely drunk again. He's got history. — 8856Saints (@PatD8856) March 13, 2019 Which brings us to our next point of discussion kids.

  18. You remember the English wicket keeper-batsman Ben Duckett, right? No? Well, we don't blame you. He used to play for the main English roster all the way back in 2016, before they became really, really good and one of the top contenders for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019. However, the lefty has been sent to their second-tier level team called 'England Lions' that recently lost to India's second-tier squad 'India A' in the One-dayers and unofficial Test series at the latter's soil. While the southpaw did have a brilliant 50-run innings during the second unofficial Test in Mysore, he would be better known to the Indian cricket fans as 'the guy who tried to troll Virat Kohli'. Even after the Indian captain bagged his career's 40th ODI in Ranchi, the Men in Blue lost to a rejuvenated Australian cricket team who took a breath of fresh air and have been dominating ever since (checkout Australia's exceptional run-chase in the fourth ODI at Mohali). Post the defeat, a cricket-enthu Twitter account trivially asked a fill in the blank question: Complete the sentence. Virat Kohli is _______________ — Cricket Shouts (@crickshouts) March 8, 2019 While the question got a lot of positive reactions like calling his “annoyingly good” and “a batsman even better than Sachin Tendulkar”, there was one particular response that was put under that spotlight. Ben Duckett's response: A joke?.............................. https://t.co/APryZGy3lf — Ben Duckett (@BenDuckett1) March 8, 2019 Apparently, Duckett called Virat Kohli “a joke” in order to show his regards towards the genius of the batsman, maybe somethings in the lines of 'he is a joke to the ODI format because he is that good', but the Viratians weren't buying it. It is plausible that as soon as the Englishman tweeted, he regretted his decision as he was hit by a barrage of raging Indian fans who called him out.

  19. Every sportsperson, at some point in their career, eventually finds that opponent who goes on to establish themselves as their nemesis. No matter how hard they try, their nemesis always finds a way to upstage them. In the world of badminton, Saina Nehwal has found that nemesis in Tai Tzu-Ying. The Taiwanese shuttler had won 14 out of the 19 head-to-head clashes against Nehwal. Thus, when the Indian shuttler geared up to take on the world no. 1 in the quarterfinals of the All England Championships on 8th March, Nehwal knew she had to be at her prolific best to come out on top. Instagram/@nehwalsaina But, sadly, Nehwal was outplayed by the defending champion in the opening exchanges of the match. Starting the match on a high-tempo, Tai Tzu didn't allow the Indian shuttler to get into the game and some weak shots further added to Nehwal's misery. She was trailing 3-11 during the break in the first game when her husband Parupalli Kashyap gave the Indian shuttler an earful. "If you want to win the match, understand that you have to be disciplined. You're playing some stupid shots," Kashyap was quoted as saying, to Nehwal during the break, by India Today. Paying heed to her husband, Nehwal fought back hard and reduced the massive gap to 12-14 in the first game. Instagram/@nehwalsaina However, as Nehwal pressed on the gas, her opponent, too, upped the ante before running away with the first game 21-15. Following an early setback, Kashyap once again advised Nehwal to be more disciplined. "Control karke maar, last me maar rahi thi. Drop ko baar baar lift karke court open chod rahi thi (Control the shuttle and go for the shots, like you did in the end. You were lifting the drop shots again and again and leaving your court open)," Kashyap said. "She (Tai Tzu) wants to keep the points short, you can't play into her hands. Be disciplined, she will play strokes and open the court for you and then you can go for your shots. You have to play her that way otherwise it's difficult," he added while directing his wife. Reuters But, Kashyap's advice was just not good enough to beat Tai Tzu who eventually sealed the 37-minute clash with a convincing scoreline of 15-21, 19-21. It was Nehwal's 13th straight defeat against the Taiwanese who has not lost against the Indian shuttler since 2015.

  21. Once a unified nation, India and Pakistan have gone on to become arch-rivals following the hurtful partition in 1947. Since then, the cross-border tensions, political differences and the prolonged issue of Kashmir have all fuelled the rivalry between the two neighbouring countries. However, despite the differences in opinion on numerous matters between India and Pakistan, the cricketers from both the countries share mutual respect and admiration. Virat Kohli was probably the first individual to praise Mohammad Amir after he returned to cricket following his match-fixing saga. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also sent a signed Team India jersey to Shahid Afridi upon his retirement from cricket. Then, Afridi struck a chord with Indian fans after showing respect to the tri-colour during an ice cricket tournament in Switzerland. But, it seems times have changed. © AP The dastardly Pulawama attack that claimed the lives of more than 40 CRPF personnel has got everyone on the edge with the ties between the two nations reaching an all-time low. The suicide terror strike carried out by Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) has enraged India and its citizens who are now calling for a complete boycott of Pakistan. And, amid all the backlash, Afridi did his reputation no good after he was seen spewing venom on India during an interview on a Pakistani news channel. Lauding Pakistan PM Imran Khan's recent statements, Afridi blamed India for targeting Pakistan under the garb of the Pulwama attack without any proof. Pakistani Cricket Star @SAfridiOfficial endorsing the message of @ImranKhanPTI sent to India through a speech and saying Pakistan want friendly relations with all neighbours “Indians should behave like a well educated nation” watch tonight in #CapitalTalk on Geo News at 8 PST pic.twitter.com/2PxkesHmzq — Hamid Mir (@HamidMirPAK) February 20, 2019 "Without any proof they are putting all the blame onto Pakistan straight away. PM Imran Khan has once again spoken on this matter in a positive & clear way to explain that Pakistan wants to have good relations with not only India, but also Afghanistan, Iran & China," Afridi was heard saying on the show. In the wake of the ghastly attack, IMG Reliance recently pulled out as the main broadcaster of the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which is currently in progress. Reacting to that, Afridi once again took a dig at India by claiming that educated people don't behave in this manner. "You find out who your friends are at difficult times. What are they trying to show the world that they are educated? Educated people don't behave in such a manner," Afridi said. While the Indian government has already taken measures to isolate Pakistan, the BCCI is also mulling the idea of boycotting Pakistan at the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, later this year. Amidst all that, Afridi, rather than behaving like an ideal sports icon, has got Indian fans up in arms.

  22. Owing his valuable contribution to Indian cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has established a fanbase that is hard to beat for any other cricketer in the country. From fans invading the pitch to shake his hand to the crowd giving him a standing ovation every time he comes out to bat, there is no bigger crowd-puller than the former Indian captain. Thus, it's quite a no-brainer to anticipate the reactions of fans when it comes to meeting or getting some personal space with the Jharkhand cricketer. But, while the world continues to celebrate his genius and fans shadow his every move, a kid refused the opportunity to get up close and personal with Dhoni. During a charity match in Mumbai recently, the 37-year-old was spotted flaunting his football skills on the field. Following the match, Dhoni - staying true to his nature - took the time to greet the large crowd that had gathered at the venue to catch a glimpse of one of India's biggest sports icons. View this post on Instagram Lil kid says no to #msdhoni ð as is not in the mood. A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Feb 19, 2019 at 3:17am PST As he made his way through the crowd, he stopped by for a kid and offered to pick him up in his arms. In a video that has since gone viral, Dhoni can be heard saying, "Aaogey?" before being turned down by the kid who began crying. While he couldn't do much with the kid, Dhoni will be looking to continue his fine form when Australia lock horns with India in two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), slated to begin from 24th February. Considering the upcoming series will be India's last international assignment before the ICC World Cup in England and Wales, Dhoni will be eager to make the opportunity count and anchor the middle-order in the build up to the ICC spectacle beginning in May.
  23. Social media is a bizarre place. Here anything and anyone under the sun is just a click away from going viral. From dancing uncle, chai peelo aunty, dhinchak Pooja, wink queen Priya to an egg (yes even an egg) can break the internet and get the world to talk about them. Recently, a picture of a bunch of kids went viral that has left people emotional and teary-eyed. © Twitter "You're only as happy as you choose to be," said Boman Irani about this picture, which is now being termed as the 'Selfie of the Year'. Honestly, we couldn't agree any more. While most of us crib about things we don't have, these kids with their innocent smiles teach us how one can be truly happy and content with whatever they have. “You're only as happy as you choose to be”.

  24. Over the years, Indian cricket has seen many spinners come and go. Some have managed to make a mark in the history books, while others have faded with time. In the current crop of the Indian team, the likes of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have forged a vital spin-bowling partnership. On one hand, where the chinaman cuts down the flow of runs for the opposition, the leggie is seen bamboozling the batsmen with his attacking leg-spin. While Kuldeep has proved effective across formats, Chahal has only been tried in limited-overs cricket. But, despite the limited opportunities he's got, Chahal makes it a point to contribute to his team's cause whenever he walks out on the field. However, that's not the only thing Chahal is good at. © AP The 28-year-old has struck a chord with cricket fans with his own chat show 'Chahal TV' where he is seen doing candid interviews of fellow cricketers. Making an exception to the format of the show, Chahal TV's latest episode saw India's very own 'Bharat Army' making a brief appearance. Following India's 35-run triumph in the fifth ODI in Wellington, Chahal resumed to his role as host and spoke to India's 'fan troop' that continues to cheer for the team in different countries, at different venues. “Bharat Army was founded 20 years ago in the UK. After that, it spread all over. You've seen them in Australia, New Zealand and in India as well. Wherever the team travels we are there to support them. We call ourselves the 12th man of the Indian team,” a member of the outfit said on Chahal TV. MUST WATCH: Meet the bunch that support #TeamIndia everywhere they go. Say Hello to The Bharat Army - by @RajalArora P.S. Let us know how you find Bharat Army's original "Chahal TV soundtrack" ð¼ðï¸ð - @yuzi_chahal ðºðº Full Video here â¶ï¸â¶ï¸ https://t.co/qbFQXa3Xuv pic.twitter.com/f8Xvl5m4tV — BCCI (@BCCI) February 4, 2019 The 'Bharat Army' also composed a special song for Chahal who emerged as the joint-leading wicket-taker alongside Mohammed Shami with nine scalps in the ODI series. Chahal was then seen dancing to the beats of the 'dhol' as some members of the 'fan troop' also joined in. A brief video of the episode was also shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on the social media. "MUST WATCH: Meet the bunch that support #TeamIndia everywhere they go. Say Hello to The Bharat Army. P.S. Let us know how you find Bharat Army's original "Chahal TV soundtrack" @yuzi_chahal," the BCCI tweeted.
  25. For a man who was busy honing his skills as a chess player before representing India at junior levels, Yuzvendra Chahal has undoubtedly come a long way to become one of the country's preferred spinners in limited-overs cricket. Making his debut in 2016, the leggie has managed to rise through the ranks in Indian cricket and forged a vital partnership with fellow spinner Kuldeep Yadav for his side. Continuing his fine form, the 23-year-old played a pivotal role in India's historic 4-1 win the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series in New Zealand. In the five games he played, Chahal bagged nine wickets - emerging as the joint leading wicket-taker alongside Mohammed Shami in the recently-concluded series. © AP During India's massive batting collapse in the 4th ODI, Chahal also emerged as the top-scorer for his side, scoring 18 vital runs for India. Then, in the fifth and final ODI, Chahal's attacking leg-spin bowling saw him bagging three wickets - once again, the most by an Indian bowler during the match in Wellington. But, apart from bamboozling the opposition batsmen and providing vital breakthroughs to his side, Chahal has also thrived in another role where he has been seen interviewing fellow cricketers on his very own 'Chahal TV' - a show that has now become a one-stop shop for fans to watch their favourite cricketers talk about the game. The popularity of 'Chahal TV' could have touched new heights after India's 35-run win over New Zealand in the fifth ODI. But, it wasn't meant to be - thanks to a shy and reluctant MS Dhoni. pic.twitter.com/msk6z3ynaX — Dhoni Fan (@WastingBalls) February 3, 2019 Following their win, Chahal was eager to get Dhoni on his chat show for a candid conversation. But, the former Indian captain was in no mood to give the interview and ran away from the leg-spinner who was seen chasing MSD across the ground. Well, who won between Dhoni & Chahal in the race is a no brainer. But, the video of the hilarious incident has taken social media by storm.

Following their emphatic win in ODIs, the Indian cricket team will now lock horns with New Zealand in the three-match T20I series, slated to begin from 6th February in Wellington.
