  1. The year 2021 looks destined to be a promising year for movie buffs as they will have a chance to watch a list of exciting Hollywood films that include The Matrix 4, Fast & Furious 9, Conjuring 4, Mortal Kombat, A Quiet Place Part II and the latest Bond film, No Time to Die. However, amongst this very list is a movie of a certain Hollywood superstar, who refuses to age with time and still chooses to do his own stunts- the Mission Impossible star, Tom Cruise. The 58-year-old actor is set to return as US Navy's daredevil pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to the 1986 American action drama film, Top Gun. © Pinterest Recently, it was announced that the movie's release date was shifted from June to November, and while fans may have been left disappointed for not seeing their hot-shot fighter jet pilot sooner, the wait is only going to make things a lot more sweeter. Amid the wait, we decided to make a list of things about Top Gun 2 that surely will get fans excited: 1. Maverick Returns as a Flight Instructor: © Cinemablend Decades after passing out as an ace pilot from the Top Gun, the US Navy's most elite flight school, Tom Cruise's character Maverick returns to the training academy as a top-flight instructor. While we saw his exploits as a lethal fighter pilot in the first film, we cannot wait to explore how he trains and flies along his trainees to shoot down enemy planes in the sequel. 2. The Iceman-Maverick Rivalry: © DigitalTrends People who saw the first Top Gun movie know that movie revolved around the rivalry around characters Maverick (Cruise) and Iceman (Val Kilmer). Kilmer has been confirmed to return as Iceman in the second installment, and we cannot wait for them to take the competition to the next level while flying top-end fighter jets. 3. New Fighter Jets: © Twitter Maverick and the rest of the pilots flew in their F-14 Tomcat fighter jets in the first film. However, a lot has changed in the span of decades, and with the new movie trailer showcasing some mean machines ranging from Boeing F/A 18F Super Hornets and the mysterious SR-72 Darkstar aircraft, it sure looks like a visual treat. 4.

  2. A man in the United Kingdom shopping at a local Tesco supermarket was left stunned after ordering a bag of apples. He was caught by surprise as the supermarket substituted a bag of apples with a brand new iPhone. © Twitter_Nick James Nick James collected his groceries from a local Tesco Extra in Twickenham and was told by the staff that there was a “surprise” in his bag. Mr James was left stunned after he found a brand new iPhone SE in his bag. He told the Mirror: “I was half expecting the surprise to be an Easter egg or something - I was a little bit shocked, to say the least.” A big thanks this week to @Tesco & @tescomobile. On Wednesday evening we went to pick up our click and collect order and had a little surprise in there - an Apple iPhone SE. Apparently we ordered apples and randomly got an apple iphone! Made my sons week! #tesco #substitute pic.twitter.com/Mo8rZoAUwD — Nick James (@TreedomTW1) April 10, 2021 Tesco Supermarkets also have a subsidiary business i.e. Tesco Mobile which is giving away free iPhones, AirPods and Samsung devices as a part of a promotional campaign this week. The campaign involves substituting people’s groceries with gadgets and has been aptly called the “super substitutes” promotion. © Twitter_Nick James Other lucky customers have also received substitutes such as a brand new Samsung Galaxy S21 in place of Galaxy chocolates. a Motorola E7 instead of a bread roll and an iPhone 12 Mini instead of Mini Cheddar cheese.

  3. It is safe to say that Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s debut in the Indian Premier League 2021 did not go the way he or any of his fans had thought. Walking down to the pitch after the dismissal of Suresh Raina, the skipper gave up his wicket on just the second delivery he faced as he helped bowler Avesh Khan get some caught-and-bowled practice early in the season. MS Dhoni's first duck in T20s since the 2015 IPL https://t.co/n0I9J7qh68 | #CSKvDC | #IPL2021 pic.twitter.com/hft1VnxGQd — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) April 10, 2021 Scoreless, ‘Thala’ had to return to the dugout without making an impact in favour of the Chennai Super Kings franchise. However, the duck-out wasn’t even the end of his misery through the night as the Delhi Capitals batsmen walked all over Dhoni’s bowlers and successfully chased down a 188-run total with eight balls to spare. To add to his pain, Dhoni was also slapped with a Rs. 12 lakh fine at the end of the match for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second half. Captain MS Dhoni fined INR Rs 12 lakh for Chennai Super Kings' slow over-rate against Delhi Capitals. #CSKvDC | #IPL2021 pic.twitter.com/ZpcI8eHzsK — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) April 10, 2021 Fans and staff members of the CSK continue to feel that Dhoni is still the same old Mahi who smacks bowlers for sixes on demand and that his mysterious captaincy will continue to bring him success even at the age of 39, however, cricket analysts believe that the ‘Whistle Podu’ gang is set for yet another disappointing season after missing out on the IPL Playoffs for the very first time in league history back in 2020. Sure, during the two practice matches that CSK had within their squad, Dhoni’s power and unorthodox batting were put on display and were highlighted by social media platforms all over the world to make the followers of the game believe that he was back for a revenge season but the fact remains that Dhoni hasn’t had a decent innings since ICC World Cup 2019. A remarkable partnership between @msdhoni and @imjadeja provided some wonderful shot-making and took India to the brink of a thrilling comeback. See their best shots here #TeamIndia | #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/ZxlDtJzn8i — ICC (@ICC) July 10, 2019 On the other hand, his apprentice Rishabh Pant went on to have a dream start to his career as the captain of a franchise. He was not only praised for his calmness and decision-making as the top-guy but even got to score the match-winning runs in the 19th over of the game to get his side at the top of the IPL 2021 Points Table with 2 points and a +0.779 Net Run Rate (highest in the league so far).

  4. We have said this before and we can confidently say it again - Ranbir Kapoor has often shown us that he has one of the best collections of sneakers. The man truly is a hypebeast, and owns some of the most sought after sneakers in the world. © Instagram/RanbirKFanClub Recently, on a visit to a dentist in Mumbai, he showed us again why people think that he is a proper sneakerhead. © Viral Bhayani Ranbir was seen wearing one of the most expensive sneakers that money can buy. But first, let’s take a look at his outfit. © Viral Bhayani Ranbir was seen wearing a rather basic looking grey coloured T-shirt, and a pair of really dope-looking jeans. The jeans were slightly distressed and were decorated rather elegantly with bleach stains. © Viral Bhayani Along with that, he was seen wearing a rather dapper-looking baseball cap, and mask that matched his shirt. © Viral Bhayani As we said, the highlight piece of his ensemble was the pair of sneakers. Ranbir was seen wearing the Jordan 1 Retro High Dior, a pair of sneakers that was a part of a capsule collection made by Nike & Dior. © Viral Bhayani Also known as the Air Dior, the sneaker had a limited production run of 8,500, which when you compare it to other Air Jordan 1s, is not that high a number. © Nike When it was brand new, it retailed for $2,000 or just over Rs 1.56 Lakhs and sold out within minutes. Add your import duties and taxes, and you’re looking at a pair that would have cost north of Rs 2.3 Lakhs, easily. But that’s not what the sneakers are worth today. © Nike Today, they resell for as high as $9,000 or roughly Rs 6 Lakhs. At a minimum, they resell for about $7,200 or Rs 5.8 Lakhs. © Nike However, Ranbir has got a trick up his sleeves that allows him to pick up the choicest of sneakers for much less than what normal mortals like us would have to pay. © Viral Bhayani Speaking to a popular men’s lifestyle magazine about his obsession with sneakers, Ranbir gave away some juicy tidbits about his sneakers and how he collects them. © Viral Bhayani He said that he has a guy in London, a reseller who is in the business of picking up the latest pairs of kicks as soon as they drop. This guy apparently reserves 2 pairs for Ranbir, which he picks up each time he visits London. He buys 2 pairs of each pair, one to wear and one to stock. © Viral Bhayani That’s one neat trick to pick up kicks that go out of stock as soon as they drop. But then, isn’t it a bit obvious for someone who’s as massive a sneakerhead as Ranbir? We just can’t wait to see what other exotic pair Ranbir shows up in. View the full article
  5. It’s April Fool’s Day in India and all over the world and each year companies try to fool their customers with some sort of prank hoping to go viral —unless you’re Google. The search engine giant cancelled its plans for April Fool’s pranks for the second time in a row but that didn’t stop other companies from cracking a joke or two. From OLA to Flipkart to Volkswagen, here are some of the most hilarious April Fool’s pranks carried out by tech companies all over the world. 1. Voltswagen Not Volkswagen © VOlkswagen The German car company briefly fooled its customers by changing its name to ‘Voltswagen’ to highlight the launch of the all-electric ID.4 SUV. Many people fell for the change in nomenclature as it was carried out a few days before April 1st. The German company has now confirmed that the name-change was part of an elaborate April Fool’s prank and will be reverting to its original name. What began as an April Fool’s effort got the whole world buzzing. Turns out people are as passionate about our heritage as they are about our electric future. So whether it’s Voltswagen or Volkswagen, people talking about electric driving and our ID.4 can only be a good thing. pic.twitter.com/Rzx8mJgxkT — Volkswagen (@VW) March 31, 2021 2. OLA © Twitter/Bhavish Aggarwal Indian ride-hailing company also tried its hand at fooling its customers with a video that was posted by Co-Founder and CEO Bhavish Agarwal. The video feels very much like an official briefing video where the company introduces an electric flying car/taxi called the ‘OLA AirPro’. While electric flying cars have become a reality, which is probably why OLA managed to fool many of its customers easily. Unfortunately, the video was yet another elaborate prank that kind of messed with our expectations. Excited to unveil the world’s first and only fully autonomous electric flying car. The Ola AirPro. Ab har family bharegi udaan. Test flights now at https://t.co/UbwKCwikg1 #OlaAirPro #TheFutureIsHere @Olacabs @OlaElectric pic.twitter.com/dy31ZS8FQ8 — Bhavish Aggarwal (@bhash) April 1, 2021 3. Flipkart © Twitter/Flipkart eCommerce websites aren’t usually known for being funny or pulling pranks by Flipkart caught quite a few off guard last night. The company announced that it will start accepting Bitcoin as a way to pay for products on its website. However, not many people were fooled by this stunt as India has been quite apprehensive about cryptocurrency for the past few months. The future is here. We now accept Bitcoin as a convenient mode of payment. Update your app now. pic.twitter.com/l3MlY2qwRd — Flipkart (@Flipkart) March 31, 2021 4. BMW ‘Lunar paint’ © BMW The German luxury car company announced that it has developed something called “lunar paint.” The company claimed that the new paint can charge a car on-the-go using solar power and also use something called “revolutionary photovoltaic technology,” allowing electric and hybrid models to recharge under the moonlight. This one cracked us up real hard, to be honest. The future is here. We now accept Bitcoin as a convenient mode of payment. Update your app now. pic.twitter.com/l3MlY2qwRd — Flipkart (@Flipkart) March 31, 2021 View the full article
  6. Not everyone is born with a silver spoon and very few end up being lucky enough to be gifted with one as well. Many famous celebrities who we know today have their own share of struggles and some have pretty interesting back stories of being rejected as well. Here are 5 celebrities who were rejected on a reality show, only to become a big face in real life: 1. Rajkummar RaoThis stupendously talented actor, who fits a role like a hand in a glove, has managed to make us believe that he is one of the finest actors of this generation. However, besides being rejected in numerous auditions back in his struggling days, not many are aware that he had a thing for dancing and was rejected at the age of 16 when he auditioned for Boogie Woogie, everyone’s favourite dance reality show back in the 90s. View this post on Instagram 2. Kapil SharmaThe uncrowned ‘comedy king’ who has the entire nation rolling in splits with his comic timing and his own show has not had it very easy as well. Long before Kapil had every big star coming on his show to promote their movies and borrow some humour from him, he was an aspiring singer and was in fact rejected during an audition for Indian Idol, as per some reports. View this post on Instagram 3. Sanya MalhotraThe ‘Dangal’ girl who has managed to carve her own niche in Bollywood and is riding high on the success of Pagglait right now was once a dancer. Interestingly, Sanya was recently seen as a celebrity judge on dancing reality show Dance Deewane 3 when she told the audience that once upon a time, before making it big in Bollywood, she auditioned for a dance show and got rejected by Dharmesh Yelande. “Aap ke wajah se clear nahi hua tha (I couldn’t get selected because of you). And see, today I am here on the same set to promote my film,” she said, leaving everyone surprised. View this post on Instagram 4. Ayushmann KhurranaThe Andhadhun actor who is a star in his own right was once a shining star on reality show Roadies. However, not many know that during his audition days for acting, Ayushmann was rejected on Cinestars Ki Khoj. Well, life came full circle for him now! View this post on Instagram 5. Raghu RamA lot of people disliked his attitude on Roadies, some felt he was too hard on contestants, but believe it or not, he was certainly an essential part of this big deal. Raghu Ram has been a known name in the entertainment industry for decades now, but not many know that he once had a penchant for singing and was outrageously rejected on Indian Idol. Interestingly, Farah Khan was on the judge panel, and years later, she cast him in her film, Tees Maar Khan. View the full article
  7. Akshay Kumar is back at what he does best, doing movies of societal and social relevance. His latest movie ‘Ram Setu’ has resumed shooting and ‘Khiladi’ Kumar shared his first look from the movie, where he’s playing the role of an archaeologist. The journey of making one of the most special films for me begins today. #RamSetu shooting begins! Playing an archaeologist in the film. Would love to hear your thoughts on the look? It always matters to me🏻 @Asli_Jacqueline@Nushrratt@Abundantia_Ent@LycaProductions pic.twitter.com/beI6p0hO0I — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) March 30, 2021 Ram Setu or the Adam’s Bridge is a long chain of limestone shoals between Rameswaram island in Tamil Nadu and Mannar island in Sri Lanka. The Ramayana mentions the existence of this bridge and believes it was built by Lord Rama with the ‘Vanara sena’ to reach Lanka and save his wife Sita from Raavan. The location mentioned in the epic is decrypted to be modern-day Sri Lanka. Other academic sources call it the Adam’s Peak, the place where Adam fell on the Earth. Legends also have it that after the Fall Of Eden, Adam was banished from there and he walked on this bridge to move towards modern-day India. Hence the term ‘Adam’s Bridge’ came into existence. After Akshay tweeted his look, sporting long hair and rimmed glasses, his fans were quick to respond and looked like it was a hit for them.

(@Akkians_BT) March 30, 2021‘Ram Setu’ is being directed by Abhishek Sharma and will also star Nushrat Bharucha and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles. The movie will have a Prime Video release probably and in one of the interviews, the actor was quoted about why he chose this project and how it will be significant. “Ram Setu is a bridge between generations past, present and future. I look forward to telling the story of a significant part of Indian heritage, especially for the youth and I am happy that, with Amazon Prime Video, the story will cut across geographies and strike a chord with viewers across the world,” he said. Here’s looking forward to another entertainer. View the full article

  9. In another episode of ‘someone just got extremely lucky', a Thai woman found an orange Melo pearl that is worth crores in her meal. Yes, you read that right! Kodchakorn Tantiwiwatkul had bought sea snails for Rs 163 from a local market for making dinner in Satun Province. © Twitter As she was cutting the snails into smaller pieces for making dinner, she noticed that one of the snail shells had a round orange object inside. She thought it was a rock but later she discovered that it was a six-gram Melo pearl. She was shocked. The pearl was 1.5cm in diameter. She assumed it only to be a small fortune according to its quality. Her family and she decided to keep the fortunate discovery of the pearl to themselves and didn’t tell anyone as they were scared that the snail vendor might ask her to return it. However, Kodchakorn has now decided to sell the pearl to pay for her mother’s medical expenses. In an interview with Daily Mail, she said, “I showed it to my mother and she said it’s a Melo pearl and very valuable. We also watched the news on the television where a fisherman sold his for a fortune.” © Unsplash Kodchakorn’s father Niwat Tantiwiwatkul said that they needed money and he recently had an accident which made things worse. Not only this, his wife also needs cancer treatment and now they might be able to afford that. The whole family’s medical bills amount to more than Rs 23.34 lakh. Niwat said, “We can’t wait any longer. Now, we are desperate. My wife was diagnosed with cancer while I had an accident. This Melo pearl is our only hope to help them access the better treatment.” The family has now decided to find potential buyers who will offer them a good price for the valuable Melo pearl. © Twitter There is a wide variety of Melo pearls that range from orange to tan to brown. However, orange is the most valuable shade of all. These pearls are usually found in the South China Sea and the Andaman Sea off the coast of Myanmar. Didn’t they just get extremely lucky?

  10. Online shopping has become our go-to thing during the pandemic, all thanks to the novel Coronavirus. And many times shopping online has led us to waste our money and not getting the exact product that we expected to get. Something similar happened with a teen from Thailand who was waiting for his iPhone and got something that he never expected. According to Oriental Daily, the teen had placed an order for an iPhone after it was priced lesser than what he was getting at other places. Thinking it’s a deal, he went ahead and bought the Apple smartphone. But when he received the product it wasn’t anywhere near to what he hoped for. © Twitter The package he received was as tall as him and looked like an extremely large iPhone. After looking at the package closely, he figured that it is an iPhone-shaped coffee table and not the actual smart-phone. Now, his pictures with a gigantic iPhone have surfaced on the internet but he seems happy with his purchase. The coffee table looks like an iPhone 6s but only it is bigger. It has a screen that is black in color, a touch ID, and a fake mic. The table is of rose gold color that got extremely famous and four white legs. © BCCL However, the table looks far better than the fake iPhones, detergent soaps that are sometimes replaced with the original iPhone in the box. In 2019, a man from Bangalore had ordered an iPhone worth Rs 93,000 but received a fake phone with camera stickers. The phone was identical to the iPhone XS but was an android. Later, the e-commerce platform replaced the delivery with an original iPhone. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below! View the full article
  11. The day has come! In the fourth installment of the MonsterVerse by Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures, Godzilla vs. Kong is finally out in Indian theatres today. And the reviews, both from critics and the audience who grabbed the seats for today’s shows, have got me super excited to catch the movie myself! The movie, which was supposed to release in November last year but had been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, centers around two giant monsters, King Kong and Godzilla, and their battle for dominance. It also introduces Mechagodzilla to the MonsterVerse, which a lot of people were pretty hyped about! Here are some promising reviews that explain why, exactly, I’ll be heading to my local movie hall as soon as the weekend's here. Godzilla vs kong is a complete blast ..Pure mad stuff with insane action scenes ..

  12. Whether you like Bollywood or hate it, there’s one thing no one familiar with the industry can deny: the sensationalization. As with any type of mainstream Indian media, the masala is what drives a vast majority of Bollywood movies and the craze of biopics did not manage to escape this treatment either. Bollywood has a long history of distorting or even making up facts to suit films’ narratives, which has been evidenced in the many biopics that have come out in the recent years. With Parineeti Chopra-starring Saina Nehwal biopic just around the corner (with a release date of 26 March), we thought we’d have a look at three of the biggest fails we’ve seen in the past — with hope that this time it might turn out different! 1. Dangal © UTV Motion Pictures Starting with Dangal, the 2016 Amir Khan-starring film that goes into the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his older daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat. The film is overall enjoyable and tackles important issues with care; however, there were still facts that the movie got wrong while trying to keep viewers at the edge of their seats. For one, there was the depiction of the character of Geeta’s coach, PR Sondhi. In the movie, the coach had taken up somewhat of an antagonistic role, who at the very end of the movie had even locked up Geeta’s father inside a storeroom during the last match. The real-life coach had objected to this portrayal, saying it was damaging to his reputation and that the security would’ve found out had he actually ever done that. It had been later clarified that the incident had been fictionalised. Another glaring distortion of reality to create drama were the matches itself, with the movie showing lost matches where there hadn’t been an incorrect point division in the last match at the climax of the movie. © Sweta Arora on Quora 2. Gunjan Saxena © Instagram/janhvikapoor One of the most recent examples, the 2020-released Gunjan Saxena had been heavily criticised for borrowing from reality rather than staying true to it, coming from various ex-officers of the Indian Air Force (IAF). Besides questions over some of the “firsts” claimed in the movie, the biggest issue had been the portrayal of gender bias. Many had pointed out that the infrastructural disadvantages shown in the film were not actually true and basic facilities for women had been well provided. It had gotten to the point that Gunjan Saxena, whose life the film had portrayed, had responded to the critics citing “creative license” taken by the filmmakers. © Instagram/janhvikapoor While that is certainly true, and to no fault of the real Gunjan Saxena, there must be certain things that cannot be excused in a movie when it comes to a biopic. And much can be said about how many strides the movie could’ve taken towards representing true gender bias had it not distorted basic facts. 3. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag © Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures Yup, the wonderfully inspiring movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag had its moments of factual inaccuracies as well. Though overall it seems to remain true to real-life occurrences, it wouldn’t be a Bollywood production if the creators didn’t try to add even more drama to the story! For one, the movie shows Milkha as breaking the 400m world record with a time of 45.8 seconds in 1960, which is entirely untrue. In actuality, it was merely his personal goal, and the record had then been set by Lou Jones at 45.2 seconds in 1956. © Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures The film features various other distortions, such as the Lahore race (and the consequent earning of the title “Flying Sikh”) occuring after Rome when in real life it happened well before, besides tiny inaccuracies in period depiction. What are some other movies you know that have distorted facts and presented wrong information? Tell us in the comments below! View the full article
  13. Just a day after sharing the teaser, Mumbai Saga makers have now released the first song of the film Shor Machega. The foot-tapping number has been sung by none other than Yo Yo Honey Singh and also, he has composed the track along with Hommie Dilliwala. The song takes place in the jungle-themed bar and it takes you back to the era of the 80s and 90s as the movie is set in that time period. You do get to see Emraan Hashmi and John Abraham in the song but it’s mostly the artists themselves conquering the screen. After listening to the song, we were a tad bit disappointed and felt the song was respective to a point where it started to feel stretched. Here’s the song: There were people who loved the song and are calling it a hit. © Honey Singh Instagram © Honey Singh Instagram Then, there were people who echoed our emotions and felt the song wasn’t up to the mark. They, in fact, went to say that Honey Song has lost his charm and he has got the ‘Tony Kakkar virus’. It’s because even Tony has the habit to repeat his lyrics and has a particular style. People want the old Honey Singh back in the game. © T-Series YouTube © T-Series YouTube © T-Series YouTube Sharing his journey with us, Honey Singh had exclusively told us, “It's been a long journey and I think mein ek jawab mein isko sum up nahi kar sakta. Keeping it short, I would want to tell you that I started as a music producer and I had never imagined that I will be pursuing singing. In the initial stage, I was serving the Punjabi music industry for a good 5 to 6 years and during that time, I bagged quite a few awards as a music director. And then dheere dheere, I started writing songs for other people and then finally, my team decided that we should start singing. Well, I, then, launched myself as a solo artist. I made Brown Rang in 2011 and shot in 2012. The song started to trend and from there, there was no looking back. I think I haven't really struggled. I believe the struggle is when you have the talent and you still are not getting your due. I have been lucky as I have got opportunities since the beginning.” Talking about Mumbai Saga, the film follows the story of John’s character Amartya Rao who has only one goal in life - to rule the city. Amartya rose from the streets of Mumbai and wanted to own the city as a ruthless gangster. He had a stronghold but things change for him after he murders a top industrialist. A prize of Rs 10 crore is announced for his life and it’s Emraan Hashmi who plays the cop that takes up the challenge. Excited about the movie? Let us know in the comments below!

  14. Call it destiny or a joke that universe tends to play more often than not, everyone's favourite comedian and actor Kapil Sharma has been landing into controversy soup quite a few times since the past few years. Recently, he was spotted on a wheelchair at the airport. Naturally the paparazzi got curious and wanted to get a closer look at the comedian. Kapil was recorded hurling abuses like "ullu ke patthe" and such to the photographers. This created a lot of hullabaloo and triggered quite a few reactions online. While this is the latest that we hear of Kapil, here are four other such instances along with the latest incident that makes Mr Sharma controversy's favourite child. 1. BMC Bribe ControversyCall it brutal honesty, or a dig at the BMC, but Kapil’s rant against the municipal corporation got him under the radar when back in 2016 he tweeted about paying tax of about 15 crore and bribing the BMC officials for his office space. I am paying 15 cr income tax from last 5 year n still i have to pay 5 lacs bribe to BMC office for making my office @narendramodi — Kapil Sharma (@KapilSharmaK9) September 9, 2016Yeh hain aapke achhe din ? @narendramodi — Kapil Sharma (@KapilSharmaK9) September 9, 20162. Kapil vs Sunil GroverEveryone knows about an apparent fight that ensued between these two colleagues who were once best friends and also co-mischief makers on Kapil’s show. Even though the actor/host tried to clear the air and brush off any amount of animosity, Sunil Grover called him out in a very sophisticated manner. From a friend, with love @KapilSharmaK9 pic.twitter.com/2c7uQ5jqH5 — Sunil Grover (@WhoSunilGrover) March 21, 2017 3. Misbehaviour With Marathi Co-starsBack in 2015, during the Marathi International Film Festival Awards, some actresses accused Kapil of misbehaving with them and showing uncouth behaviour at a wrap-up party. The actor didn’t immediately clarify anything but did tweet something which was hinted as an apology for the same. 4. Upsetting The Kayastha communityLast year in March, in one of the shows, Kapil took a dig at a deity of the Kayastha community which didn’t go well with people of the Kayastha community at all. After being called out online, the actor issued an apology for the same. प्यारे कायस्थ समाज के लिए @kayasthasabha @SubodhKantSahai pic.twitter.com/sord7gTxba — Kapil Sharma (@KapilSharmaK9) May 21, 2020 5. Kapil Vs The PaparazziJust a day ago, the actor was clicked at the Mumbai airport on a wheel chair, going towards his car with his team. It was understood that the camera people should probably not hound him, or maybe he was having a bad day, clearly, but being a celebrity comes with a price. The actor lost his cool and was caught on camera while he abused the paparazzi as he drove away. View this post on Instagram View the full article
  15. Recently, Salman Khan got relief in the blackbuck poaching case as the Jodhpur District and sessions court dismissed the Rajasthan government’s plea against him. The Rajasthan government had accused the actor of submitting a fake affidavit regarding the license for arms in 2003. After the news of getting relief from the poaching case was out, Salman Khan took to social media and shared a photo of himself on Instagram and wrote, “To all my fans.. thank u for your love support n concern. Khayal rakho apna n parivaar ka (Take care of yourself and your family). God bless n loveee u too.” Check out the post here- To all my fans.. thank u for your love support n concern. Khayal rakho apna n parivaar ka. God bless n loveee u tooo... pic.twitter.com/8zPGfQx5Lk — Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) February 11, 2021 Here’s what people on social media have to say about Salman Khan getting relief from the case that he was fighting since the year 2003- We love you sir Jag ghoomeya thare jaisa na koi — Susmita Adhikari (@Susmita89398291) February 12, 2021Love You Bhaii.

For the unversed, Salman Khan was arrested in the year 1998 for killing two blackbucks in a village near Jodhpur. It was the same village where he was shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s Hum Saath Saath Hai. A case under the Arms Act was registered against him and the court had demanded the submission of his arms license. However, in 2003, he told the court that his license had gone missing and the prosecution fought that he had submitted a false affidavit as he had now submitted his license for renewal.

  16. Much like the first two days of Test 1 of the India-England series, the hosts are struggling to stay afloat against Joe Root’s side even though it was India’s turn to put in some work with the bat at the Chepauk Stadium now. After leaking 578 runs in the first innings with the ball, while allowing Root to score 218 runs off 377 deliveries and Dom Sibley’s 87 off 286, fans had attached a lot of expectations from the very talented top-order of the Indian batting order. View this post on Instagram Renowned names like Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane needed to stick to the crease, play with utmost care and stitch together enough runs in order to take the load off the middle order batsmen like Rishabh Pant and Washington Sundar’s shoulders. Sadly, the first two sessions of the day saw the world-class players drop like flies one after another. After Sharma’s cheap dismissal for just six runs in the fourth over, Gill’s action-packed yet small innings also came to a disappointing end in the 10th over when he was caught out by James Anderson following an excellent diving effort. What a catch by 38-years old James Anderson. Brilliant catch taken by James Anderson and Shubman Gill out. #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/xg5iBs7UMF — CricketMAN2 (@man4_cricket) February 7, 2021 Big things were expected out of the Indian skipper who is yet to make a huge batting comeback in the longest format of the game but even Kohli could not score more than 11 runs and gave up a simple catch while misjudging Dom Bess’ spin in the 25th over. India’s deputy in command, Rahane has also struggled to put up big numbers ever since his remarkable century at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during India’s first win in the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy but was forced to return to the pavilion thanks to a stinger of a single-hand catch by Root. Poor fans of the Men in Blue are in absolute denial as they see their idols go down one after another and are simply blaming the beginning of Valentine’s Week with Rose Day for the losses. #INDvsENG Virat : Bhai thode run banale Rose day bad me celebrate kr lena.

The last two matches in Australia are also a testament of the batting abilities of Washington Sundar who is yet to pad up. The team will also depend on Ravichandran Ashwin’s experience to get out of the Chepauk stadium without losing the first Test. View the full article
  17. International cricket is back in India with the inception of the four-match Test series against the touring England side. This means that the confidence with which the Men in Blue play at home has also returned. It has also boosted the ability of the analysts and fans to kick-start the sledging game against the visiting rivals and maybe even throw some shade towards the Australian side whom they'd recently conquered, for good measure. Former Indian batsman and the freshest meme-master of the cricket fraternity, Wasim Jaffer took his shot against the Englishmen a day ahead of the first red-ball match with the following tweet. #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/blqtWFxkyd — Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) February 4, 2021 While directed towards England skipper Joe Root, Jaffer’s tweet is an obvious jab at the captain of the Australian side in the longest format of the game, Time Paine who went overboard in the trash-talking department during the third Test in Sydney. “Can’t wait to see you in Gabba, Ash,” Paine had said to Ravichandran Ashwin during the second innings of the SCG Test. What happened next was absolutely unfathomable for most cricket viewers from all over the world and not just Paine. Despite most of the big names of the team being ruled out of the series due to personal reasons or injuries, the Men in Blue spearheaded by Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill were able to win the match at the Brisbane Cricket Ground, end the 33-year old undefeated Test-cricket record of the Aussies at the venue and retail for Border-Gavaskar Trophy in a heroic fashion. Here’s how Jaffer’s fans reacted to the tweet: But paine actually said pic.twitter.com/rpL5G35eJD — Bond__James Bond (@MoviesAssemble) February 4, 2021Tim Paine to his team mates after losing Gabba Test pic.twitter.com/HzLWtIPBlV — Akshay (@AkshayCric97) February 4, 2021Joe root after listening words from Paine: pic.twitter.com/IpmGhTqZUv — बनारसी बाबू (@BanarasAurMai) February 4, 2021One bhakra to another #INDvENG #INDvsENG pic.twitter.com/iEi2rYYgo2 — THE ROCKSTAR (@VivJonty) February 4, 2021Day one of the first Test match at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai saw some great work by the hosting side. Even though a couple of catch opportunities were dropped by wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and a few misfield led to some extra runs leaking out, the first session witnessed two of England’s top batsmen getting dismissed early. First it was Rory Burns who was tricked by Ashwin to try a cheeky shot which backfired on the hitter as the ball connected with the top-edge, his hand and floated up in the air for a simple catch into the hands of Pant. Then came Jasprit Bumrah, playing his first international Test at home, who stunned Dan Lawrance with a blistering delivery for a Leg-Before-Wicket appeal which was so evident that umpire Nitin Menon didn’t have to think twice before raising his finger.
