  1. Bollywood is a churning machine of talent and while "catch ém while they are young" is the mantra for a lot of successful actors in the industry, some of the most talented people in the industry managed to find major success only after the age of 40. Here is the list of five actors who have proved that age has got nothing to do with talent: 1. Boman Irani No one could go back to what would have become of the Munnabhai franchise without the presence of this talented actor who began his career in the industry only after he was 40 years of age. View this post on InstagramNavroze Mubarak to one and all!!!!! For the first time on Navroze Iâm not at a Parsi Natak. On our terrace instead. Will go down and spend the evening with family. Not a bad idea at all. The terrace however displayed a rather crisp and pastel skyline. A positive takeaway from all this. So once again. NAVROZE MUBARAK. One more thing. Whatsapp forwards spread a disease called Panic. We know what to do. So just do it. Stay home with family and take the prescribed precautions. Soap, distance and smile. They arenât very tough to follow.A post shared by (@boman_irani)2. Adil MishraHe got some attention in the 2010 Ishqiya but after a few blink and miss performances, he was nowhere to be seen until English Vinglish happened. After some strong performances in Life Of Pi and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Adil is now a favourite amongst the new age directors. © Twitter 4. Pankaj TripathiA man who performs with grace par excellence, he has had his fair share of struggle in the industry but at the age of 43, life has come full circle and itâs the beginning of a new innings for him.

Piyush MishraThis gem of talent is not just a brilliant actor, but his creative bursts have given us some beautiful sonnets and poetry.

  2. Yes, it's almost been a year since Game of Thrones ended and we're still talking about it, deal with it. And honestly, this show is actually going to be talked about and will stay relevant for years, even if people just trash talk the last season, just because of how big of a cultural phenomenon it was. Throughout the show, I'm pretty sure Daenerys Targaryen was almost everyone's favourite character and Emilia Clarke gets a lot of credit for making that happen, since she portrayed her so well. Side note - shoutout to Emilia for giving such an incredible performance consistently throughout even though she was having major surgeries during that period. Respect. Coming back to our beloved Dany, I think we can all agree she had somewhat of an unfair ending. I mean, yeah, she became the mad queen and burned everything but people deal with things in different ways, self-care is different for everyone. But getting murdered at the hands of your lover, and nephew? That must have sucked after finally getting what you always wanted. Turns out, even Emilia herself is annoyed by the ending, like the rest of us. While talking to SYFY, she said, "I really felt for her. And yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didnât have to deal with something? He got away with murder â literally." The main thing about Jon Snow's ending that we talk about is how all the build-up to his Targaryen identity reveal was for nothing, but no one talks much about his getting away with Dany's murder. Dany herself had to come out and call him out. Well, lucky for us, she's open to another big franchise and hopefully, when that happens, she won't have to go through that painful death again. "I think, if I did, it would be me having a giggle. I want to do something absolutely stupid and silly, like, you know, The Avengers or whatever. Something where I got to have a giggle with mates," she said. No offence to Emilia, but Avengers: Endgame wasn't 'silly', everyone cried like babies when Tony Stark died. But yes, I see her point. Nothing would be more opposite of Game of Thrones than Avengers and she would probably be as great in it as well. Marvel, are you listening? You already have gathered up two GoT stars - Richard Madden and Kit Harington - in one movie, do you have space for one more? Maybe, Emilia can finally get her revenge on Jon Snow in a different universe. View the full article
  3. Coronavirus is the new scare in the world which has taken over every major event in the world. Be it the Olympics, the Euro Cup, and now even the National Basketball Association (NBA) has come under the radar of the deadly virus. However, one of the players from the league, Rudy Gobert has been diagnosed with the now-pandemic disease. The Utah Jazz centre was found to be tested positive Thursday morning after the match between the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder was cancelled. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@nbadab_) Ironically, Gobert took the virus a bit too lightly a couple of days before the test when after a press conference, he jokingly touched microphones and other audio devices which were kept in front of him as if he was going to give the reporters and other journalists the highly contagious disease. Well, based on his result, his immature prank might just have become a reality and those poor journalists might also be infected. Ever since Gobertâs reports went public, the entire Jazz roster has been kept in quarantine and their opponents for the day, the OKC Thunder, led by Chris Paul are also put under the microscope. Before tipoff, CP3 reportedly went over to the Jazz bench and asked "What's wrong with Rudy?â They all told him to get away. All the players are now quarantined in their locker rooms and are being tested for the coronavirus, per @royceyoung pic.twitter.com/eQ5x16l1iu â Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) March 12, 2020 After Gobert, the NBA, as a league, did not take too long to officially announce the suspension of the entire season after having contemplated carrying our regular-season games behind closed doors and banning fans from entering the stadiums. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@nbadab_) âThe NBA announced that a player on the Utah Jazz has preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19. The test result was reported shortly prior to the tip-off of tonightâs game between the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. At that time, tonightâs game was canceled. The affected player was not in the arena,â read the press release issued by the league. âThe NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of tonightâs schedule of games until further notice. The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.â Despite the childish joke which put the lives of numerous reporters at risk, hereâs hoping Rudy speedy recovery and wish the best of health to all those who could have come in contact with the virus through him.

  4. Saurashtra has been in a comfortable position in the Ranji Trophy final against Bengal, all thanks to some excellent defensive batting partnership between Arpit Vasavada and Cheteshwar Pujara. With the former scoring his second successive hundred and latter reaching his 50-run mark in an innings full of patience, last yearâs runners-up are looking to finally get their hands on the championship cup. While things are going smoothly for the Gurjarat-based team, it got a little roughed up for one of the umpires present on the field on Day 1 of the final when he got smacked with the ball in the lower abdomen region by a Bengal fielderâs throw, late on Monday. Soon after the injury, the official Twitter handle of BCCI Domestic wished C Shamshuddin a speedy recovery. We wish umpire C Shamshuddin a speedy recovery. He is not officiating on Day 2⣠after being hit on the opening day of the @paytm #RanjiTrophy #Final. Video https://t.co/Sc3ppBJPrC#SAUvBEN pic.twitter.com/v978SB9KvQ â BCCI Domestic (@BCCIdomestic) March 10, 2020 The official was rushed to the hospital nearby after his pain aggravated and upon check-up it was decided that Shamshuddin was unfit to carry on with his duties. In an ad hoc situation, Shamsudidinâs on-field partner Anantha Padmanabhan was required to officiate on both sides of the pitch and one of the local umpires, Piyush Kakker was affixed at the square leg spot on Day 2 of the final. SCA president and former Saurashtra captain Jaydev Shah said, âUmpire Shamshuddin got hit and he complained of pain on Monday night. This morning he had to be taken to hospital, so we had to call one of our local umpires (Kakkar), whoâs also qualified for Ranji Trophy.â Umpire Hit On Abdomen, Ruled Out Of Saurashtra-Bengal Ranji Trophy FinalOn-field umpire C Shamshuddin was on Tuesday ruled out for the remainder of the Ranji Trophy final after he got hit around the lower abdomen area on the opening day of the title clash. source ⦠â neosez (@hgpvt19) March 10, 2020 âBut he could only be the leg umpire as we had to ensure allegations of biasness didnât get raised,â he added. Syed Saba Karim, the BCCIâs general manager â cricket operations, according to Telegraph India. said, âIf this kind of an incident happens, the match referee and other officials have to take it forward and discuss the matter with both teams.â âIf the two teams are okay with it, then there shouldnât be any problem as such. You can say itâs within the rules,â he added. âItâs difficult to say if such an incident has happened in the past, but this was certainly a rare occasion. From this incident the authorities will hopefully learn and do something about keeping a reserve umpire, especially for a final,â Karim said. UPDATE: Yashwant Barde has joined the team of officials for the @paytm #RanjiTrophy #Final, replacing injured C Shamshuddin. Follow the #SAUvBEN game live https://t.co/LPb46JOjje pic.twitter.com/grURuuwdW3 â BCCI Domestic (@BCCIdomestic) March 11, 2020 For Day 3, the BCCI finally found a replacement for the injured umpire in Yashwant Barde, who will be helping Padmanabhan carry on the contest without many hiccups. Hereâs hoping the official C Shamshuddin, gets well soon. View the full article
  5. Whatâs in a name? Not too much if youâre a person - but if you happen to be one of these fifteen megacompanies, a name invokes far more than just a brand label - some of these iconic names have stood for decades and will probably continue on for several more. Company founders usually find a name somewhere between clever hidden meanings, plain functionality and often, just dumb luck. Today, navigating through legal restrictions makes it a lot harder - so hereâs a list charting through some of the more unique, interesting names youâll find on stock markets today. Nike © Reuters The central idea is pretty straightforward - Nike refers to the Greek goddess of victory, usually depicted with outstretched wings and laurels as a sign of triumph - the ancient Greeks would be proud today. Lesser known in Nikeâs story however, is the brandâs original name - the much less catchy âBlue Ribbon Sportsâ. The catalyst for the name change was Blue Ribbonâs first full-time employee, Jeff Johnson, who convinced his team that successful brand names had two essential qualities. First, they were short. Second, they contained an âexoticâ letter, such as an X, K or Z. Soon, Nike took off the ground - and it all came from advice Johnson read in an airplane magazine. Google © Reuters Some meetings were just destined to happen - such as when Stanford university prospective Larry Page met Sergey Brin on the campus grounds in 1997. Soon, Google was officially registered as a domain in the same year - instead of hunting for an iconic or thoughtful word, the pair decided that one of the most obscure words in the English language would serve as their companyâs inspiration - googol, or the mathematical term for the value of 1 followed by 100 zeroes. Whatâs amusing is that before Google, the pair had initially settled on the much cosier sounding name of âBackrubâ. Imagine - an entire universe of awkward jokes and moments missed out on, where weâd spend countless hours âbackrubbingâ instead of googling stuff. Starbucks © Reuters While most of us are content with ordering a quick latte and rushing out the door, you might want to take a look at the Starbucks branding next time youâre looking for a caffeine fix. The coffee chain originated from Seattle - a city well-known for its prolific ports and history of rugged seafaring. Match that heritage to the mermaid character and her 19th-century woodcut design⦠but what about the name? For that, you need to look no further than the legendary novel Moby Dick - the whale-obsessed captain Ishmael happens to have a first mate named - you guessed it - Starbuck. Pizza Hut © Reuters Sometimes, naming a brand is less inspiration and more of working with the limitations youâve got. In the case of mega-pizza chain Pizza Hut, the story began way back in 1950 - long before the Italian favourite permeated every layer of American food culture. While attending the University of Kansas, brothers Frank and Dan Carney launched the first Pizza Hut with a $600 loan from their mother. The name was easy to remember and naturally became quite famous, but there were actually just two reasons as to why the name was chosen. First, the pizzas were made in a literal brick hut - even in 1950, not a lot you can get from $600. Second, the cramped sign only had enough space for nine letters - the rest is history. Apple © Reuters Itâs no surprise that when it came to finally naming Apple, absolutely no one would take on the duty other than marketing genius, eccentric CEO and perhaps one of the most famous late men of the 21st century, Steve Jobs. Thereâs a whole set of rumours about the name Apple - one says that Jobs took inspiration from the story of how Sir Issac Newton observed a falling apple before devising the laws of universal gravitation. The true answer is much simpler - during the time, Jobs happened to be living on an all-fruit diet. The name simply came to him while visiting an apple farm. Coca-Cola © Reuters Serving as one of the great faces of modern capitalism, right alongside McDonalds and more, Coca-Cola is a pretty ancient company - almost 130 years old. Back in the early days, the drink was promoted as a headache cure, and two of the most important additives were cocaine and caffeine - both obtained from the âcocaâ leaf and the âcolaâ nut. If youâre curious, each bottle contained some 9 milligrams of cocaine - a standard âlineâ of the substance contains 50-60 milligrams. Soon after in 1903, the dope was removed, and the world began to move on to everyoneâs favourite carbonated sugary drink, as we know it. Facebook © Reuters Ever seen Aaron Sorkinâs film, The Social Network? If you have, youâll know that before the tech giant had its name, it also had a common prefix as âThe Facebookâ. Originally, the website was a networking tool inspired by Harvardâs annual paper guide distributed to first-year students, which profiled staff and students. Launched in 2004, Mark Zuckerbergâs original site was intended solely for Harvard students but quickly spread to other U.S. universities. By 2005, Zuckerberg dropped the âtheâ and Facebook was born. Royal Enfield © Reuters An icon of both Indian riders and classic British motorcycling heritage, the Royal Enfield name has absolute cult status in the country - even though its origins were far more colonial. Whatâs interesting about the Enfield marquee is that the name has changed twice - back over into Royal Enfield once again. It began in 1890, when the British crown cleared licenses for the brand. Soon after, the motorcycles made a reputation for themselves, especially in World War II. By 1955, the brand had a decent following in India as well, where the government ordered a massive 800 units of the motorcycles for its police and army forces. Soon after, Madras Motors were looped into a deal and Enfield India was born. It wasnât until 1990 that Enfield India merged with the Eicher Group, forming the Royal Enfield we know and love today. Amazon © Reuters Before he created Amazon in 1996, founder Jeff Bezos christened his company Cadabra. That was short for Abracadabra, or the word he felt best conjured the idea that a book would magically appear âAbracadabra! â on a customerâs doorstep. After Bezosâ lawyer thought âcadabraâ sounded like âcadaver,â and Bezos reconsidered. His perfect name would begin with an A, thus appearing first in the alphabetical listing of a web search. As the largest river in the world â strong, swift and exotic â the Amazon proved to be his ultimate inspiration. View the full article

  7. Indian dance crew V Unbeatables who previously rose to fame after appearing on Americaâs Got Talent wowed the audience again when they participated in the second season of Americaâs Got Talent: The Champions which had some of the best participants coming together to compete for a grand title. Their performance on âMarana Mass' left the judges and the audience speechless. It was loved immensely on social media as well. After a long wait of all the votes pouring in, the heavily emotional finale saw the dance crew beat the other participants Duo Transcend and win the grand title of being the champions. The audience roared in chorus as the place was filled with cheers for the well deserved win. Give it up for your new #AGTChampion winners, @v_unbeatable! pic.twitter.com/Ov4gkqnaEm â America's Got Talent (@AGT) February 18, 2020 Before the results were announced though, all the finalists performed for one last time on the show and while for their fans they were already the winner, V Unbeatables danced to a wonderful choreography routine on âTattad Tattadâ from Raam Leela . In case you are wondering, they look unbeatable but what does the V in their name stand for, then let us tell you itâs not victory , even though they seem to be destined for it. The âVâ in their name stands for a team member named Vikas , who met with an accident while performing a stunt for a show and sadly succumbed to the tragic fate. This is a beautiful tribute and is a reflection of how united the team is. Well, Indians are born to take the world by a storm and an Indian dance crew winning a talent hunt in America proves India has truly got the real championship-winning talent. View the full article
  8. Sometimes, entertainment comes at a great cost, things get stuck in places where they shouldn't get stuck, but that's showbiz baby. A teenager from Ontario, Canada probably learned the hard way that putting random things in your mouth is not as safe as it may seem. (This is not meant to be dirty, please get your head out of the gutter!) Basically, in order to keep her little cousin entertained, Mollie O'Brien decided to try and fit an entire harmonica in her mouth. And, of course, it did not end well, there's literally no other way it would've ended. The poor girl had an entire musical instrument stuck inside her mouth. That's hilarious, tbh, but also sounds so painful. My mouth hurts just thinking about it. Guess what was the first thing she did? Go to her patents? Go to a doctor? Nope, don't forget she's a teenager. She made a TikTok documenting her adventure. Using the 'just did a bad thing' meme format, she shared the thing she regretted doing. The best part? When she breathed, you can actually hear the harmonica playing, that's as bizarre as it can get. @mollieobrien going to cheo to get my harmonica removed... #foryou #fyp #foryoupage #dissapointment #failure #mymomdoesntloveme #idiot ⬠I just did a bad thing bill wurtz - cameron.tr Talking to a Buzzfeed, she said, "Every time I breathed heavily out of panic, it made a noise. After 30 minutes it hurt, but then it was kinda numb." At least, she only suffered for half an hour. © TikTok/Mollie O'Brien She also had the same reaction after realizing that she couldn't get the harmonica out that all of us have whenever we're stuck in a sticky situation - "****, my mom will kill me now." Well, at least her mom wasn't mad, she was just "shocked she raised such a weird kid." © TikTok/Mollie O'Brien She had to then rush to the hospital, of course, and there, a dentist used a mechanism to hold her mouth open and remove it. The dentist had just one thing to say to her - "He said, 'Let's not do this again, OK dear?'" Fair enough. She managed to safely get it out and also went viral on TikTok, so not bad I would say.

  9. You know how the saying goes that follow what your heart desires and everything shall follow? Looks like actor/comedian and now a soon-to-be Marvel hero Kumail Nanjiani has struck gold in life and how. He shook his entire fanbase and the world when he got insanely jacked recently for his upcoming outing in Eternals and surprised everyone with his new found hot body. Seems like his desires followed him in life! View this post on InstagramI never thought Iâd be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but Iâve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvelâs Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didnât have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. Iâm glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise Iâll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)A post shared by (@kumailn) Turns out that it was not just a stellar female fan base that he had established but also caught the attention of the people at Pornhub who decided to use his picture for the âmuscular menâ category. Yeah it was no joke or photohshopped and it legit surprised Kumail himself as well. View this post on InstagramItâs been a weird couple of days... This is NOT photoshopped. Pornhub changed their picture of the Muscular Men category to... me. As I said, weird couple of days.A post shared by (@kumailn) So turns out that setting him as bait for thirst trap on the website kind of worked for Pornhub and hence the website decided to give the actor a free premium subscription for 10 years! Yeah bro, this is one token of thanks which sets the bar too high for anyone wondering how to thank their bro. "Free porn is good, but when you go to premium! I can develop fetishes â crazy ones â over the next 10 years, and I know I'll be taken care of. There's a lot," he revealed in his interview. Well, if this is not your motivation to hit the gym and become a âsakht laundaâ of your own dreams, then what else will make you leave that bed, bro? View the full article
  10. Disha Patani is not just a pretty face, she's got a head and heart too: Mohit SuriDisha Patani is one of the few faces in Bollywood known for their endless beauty. However, the 27-year-old Baaghi actor boasts of more than just a pretty face as her acting prowess is no less of a crowd-pleaser than her unmatched beauty. Nodding to that, is Indian director Mohit Suri who is working with the diva for his upcoming film Malang. Speaking about her skills, the filmmaker dished the details in an interview saying: “The whole world feels that Disha is just a pretty face and a hot body. She has something more in her. She’s got head and heart too.” "There is a perfect blend of glam quotient and bohemian vibe surrounding the character, both qualities which I could imagine Disha to compliment effortlessly. The response to Disha’s role has been great so far, I’m sure the audience will be able to connect with her even more after watching Malang,” he added.
  11. Blink and you might miss it - as Youtube and digital media continues to dominate public consciousness, yet another record was shattered this Thursday, when megagroup BTS's rapper, Suga released a new music video - a mid-album interlude titled Shadow. Not only did the video smash past the group's previously held record by 3 minutes - it now proved that content on the internet could amass a staggering 1 million likes in barely half an hour. With supportive comments pouring in from all over the world in various languages, the 'Korean/Hallyu Wave' is perhaps the greatest revolution in music since the early 2010s. With the music video tackling serious themes such as the dark side of fame and fortune, it also serves as a reflection of the highs and lows of the industry that created it. Here's why K-Pop's become the international phenomenon it is today. Old Town Seoul Despite the flashy, hyper-produced quality associated with K-Pop today, the origins of westernised Korean pop music were surprisingly humble. Back in 1885, an American missionary by the name of Henry Appenzeller started performing and teaching American and British folk songs at schools in the Korean capital, Seoul. These songs became widely popular and were performed with Korean lyrics, retaining their original English tunes - a form of music called changga. © principlesofknowledge; Court musicians performing for the Joseon dynasty, late 1800s. During the postwar era of the 1940s, Korea experienced a similar cultural revolution as Japan - huge influxes of American soldiers brought about a revolution in music and filmmaking, with demand increasing for rock musicians to perform in bars for the troops. Several young musicians from both countries saw the option as well-paying and interesting work, a rarity in Korea after their civil conflict in the 50s. This led to the rise of several live-music bars in Seoul - nearly 300 venues hosted live bands that performed Beatles covers and their own compositions. © Korea Times; Add4, a band formed in 1962 that revolutionised the landscape of Korean music. Soon, Korean cinema followed suit - propelling Korean media into widespread fame across the east as the country's economy bloomed. Groups such as the Kim Sisters, shown below, reached popularity in America as well - even hitting the #7 spot on Billboard. It was all a taste of things to come. The Modern Era K-Pop Machine Today, Korean pop music is characterised by huge entertainment conglomerates, and intensely trained stars that either work solo, or more commonly, form their own groups. These massive companies are dominated by what's known as the 'big three' - SM Entertainment, YG Entertianment and JYP Entertainment, all of which were founded in the mid-90s. The first and most obvious reason as to why K-Pop, and Korean culture, in general, has become a global hit, is the well-oiled machine that runs the entire show - the most important people aren't necessarily the artists themselves, but the people who manage, guide and often exploit them. © Washington Post; Dance lessons at Def Dance Skool, one of Seoul's most famous K-Pop academies. Out of all these students, barely a handful will become truly famous. Through intensely selective trials starting at the age of 10-12, music studios scout and recruit talented children, who are then enrolled at specialised schools that train them in dance, singing and even guide them in moderating a public persona to keep them PR ready. They're then groomed to focus on hours of rehearsals, public performances and group shows while simultaneously preparing for the trials and tribulations they may face as future pop-stars. Once a group (or the rare solo artist) has been trained to perfection, the studios chart out music releases, marketing plans and tours - and depending on how well they're received, watch the money rake in. In an almost uncanny level of planning and meticulousness, the group is then scheduled for a 'comeback', where a new album release, special TV spots and new visual themes are explored. According to the Wall Street Journal, SM Entertainment invests an average $3 million to train their idols. © Wikimedia; Kim Jong-Hyun of Shinee is one of the victims of K-Pop's pressures, had tragically committed suicide in 2017. His suicide note mentions a 'devouring depression' and his struggles with fame. While the industry is notorious for exploitative contracts, abusive business practices and perhaps an over-orchestrated sense of perfection, the results speak for themselves - and several artists accept the sacrifice of their personal lives and freedom as necessary for success. What Makes K-Pop, K-Pop? Taking a step back, we can finally focus on the fun part - the songs and music videos themselves. The most immediate and common characteristics are heavily stylised, catchy and universally appealing music, slick dance routines and a heavy emphasis on dramatic fashion choices as well as aesthetic visual backgrounds. Each of these is further divided to give each idol their own individual 'place in the team', forming a broader image that defines a K-Pop group. Lyrically, Korean lends itself well to the pop-rap synthesis that's become immensely popular in modern music. English also makes a common appearance - allowing fans across the world to sing along. According to a representative from the University of California, “contemporary Korean pop culture is built on transnational flows taking place across, beyond, and outside national and institutional boundaries.” Perhaps this explains how even the Arab world and India have become devoted fanbases despite major cultural differences. Some of this implies that K-Pop is entirely designed to present an easily-digestible, mass produced form of music, but on diving a bit deeper into the subculture, it's very likely that you'll find something unique and interesting, regardless of your tastes. Take the BTS music video of Mic Drop - it's a loud, proud club banger with a focus on attitude, sass and a haters gonna hate message. It contrasts completely with 2018's Self-Love Ballad, Epiphany - putting across a similar message but with completely different visuals and genres of music. Personally, what I feel has helped K-Pop and specifically BTS retain their throne is the ability to consistently maintain their high standards while subtly reinventing themselves. Suga's latest track casts aside the usual cliche of love songs and flaunting *** appeal with money. Instead, it's a direct addressal of the sky-high tensions a performer has to live with, directed straight at a fanbase that has grown accustomed to perfection from their idols. And if anything, further helps cement the legacy of K-Pop as we move into a new decade of innovation in global music. View the full article
  12. Kumail Nanjiani knows how to break the internet. From some really zany and off the cuff comments and jokes to some really colourful interviews, the man knows how to keep an audience at the edge of their seat. © Reuters When he posted a few photographs after getting ripped as a lumberjack, the internet went berserk. So much so, that PornHub acknowledged his physique, in the most unique way possible. © Instagram/kumailn Now, you might imagine that Kumail had to work out like a beast and practically had to live in the gym to get a physique as chiselled as that one. However, his trainer, Grant Roberts of Granite Gym in Beverly Hills, California, revealed, that his intensive workout routine was just a part of his transformation. Notably, Roberts himself has acted in a number of films, including the 2009 sports drama, Invictus, which starred Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. © Instagram/grantrobertsfit In a recent interview with a major US-based fitness magazine, Roberts revealed that although Nanjiani did work out like a mad man and went full gung ho on whatever was asked of him, his intensive workout regime was just a part of it. It seems the devil's in the details. Here's what exactly Kumail had to go through to get in shape for his role in Marvel's The Eternals. © Instagram/kumailn An Individualised Fitness Plan © Instagram/kumailn First and foremost, it was important to formulate a customised fitness regime that would work for Kumail in a manner that suited him the best. The thing is, most people forget that what works for someone else, might not work at all for them. In such a case, a personalised plan, that has been developed by expert nutritionists, fitness trainers and gym trainers becomes a must. Says Roberts, “With Kumail, the main goal was increasing muscular size, dropping excess body fat and creating total body symmetry, so keeping his composition and lifestyle in mind, we came up with a plan that would work around him.” Nutrition © iStock Robert says that apart from working out 4-5 days a week, Kumail had to tweak his diet a number of times. “Initially, the focus was on protein, water, healthy fast like omega 3and just the right amount of carbs. However, with time, he had to make some finer adjustments to make him look more vascularly fit, without dropping muscle,” he continues. Recovery © Instagram/emilyvgordon Notice how in the previous point we wrote that Kumail worked out for 4-5 days a week? Well, that's because your days for rest, or days where you let your body recover, are important. Says Roberts, “Whether you're working out for 15-20 mins, or attending two sessions a day, intense work out routines are exhausting, can be painful, and drains you completely.” On his days for recovery, Kumail would often go for massages and stretching exercises, so that his muscles wouldn't atrophy. Disciplining The Mind © iStock The first actual step in one's journey towards a fitter self is making the decision, and setting reasonable plans and achievable goals. Says Roberts, “Intelligent program design includes achievable landmarks and checkpoints while leaving room for modifications, whether results are ahead or behind schedule.” Maintenance © Instagram/kumailn Finally, there is the manner in which you maintain yourself after you've got the physique that you wanted. It is alarmingly easy to let things go once you've hit your desired inches, or hit a certain weight. However, what follows next is the actual task. Says Roberts, “Maintenance requires working out hard enough to keep everything from atrophying and consuming a maintenance diet of just the right amount of essential water, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals while keeping non-essential carbohydrates in check.” Now, it may not be as intense and seemingly rigid as the process of whipping yourself in shape, but because it is a constant endeavour, things become challenging. Considering the people that Kumail would be cast opposite in The Eternals, which includes the likes of Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek & Kit Harington among other stalwarts, being funny in an action film, while it may have its moment, won't simply cut it. No wonder, Kumail turned towards the professionals for help. View the full article
  13. Delhi's air pollution problem needed urgent fixing and the government has finally launched a pilot project to tackle the ongoing problem of smog. In the capital, a 20-feet air purifier has been installed in Delhi's Lajpat Nagar market. © Kickstarter/Concept Image The Air Purifier tower has been installed to reduce the particulate matter in the area and experts involved with the project claim it will be able to reduce the same by 80%. Delhi has experienced dangerous levels of air pollution this winter which has been at an alarming level these past few days. © Youtube This is not the first time we've seen air purifiers being installed in cities to combat the problem of air pollution. China has already been experimenting with air purifiers appropriate for cities for a while and has installed the world's biggest air purifier two years ago. As a result of the same, air quality saw improvement in an area of 10 square kilometres over a period of few months and the tower produced more than 10 million cubic metres of clean air in the same period of time. #Delhi gets first #smog tower to combat #Airpollution in LajpatNagar, cost borne by @BjpEastdelhi's #MP @GautamGambhir Foundation - delhi news - Hindustan Times pic.twitter.com/4SYljfDAha — The Sunil Kapoor™ (@sunilkapoor8) January 3, 2020 Similarly, the Supreme Court asked the Centre and the Delhi Government to take inspiration from China and come up with a roadmap on installing smog towers in NCR. The newly installed tower cost Rs 7 lakh and was procured by the Gautam Gambhir Foundation. The average running cost of the tower is Rs 30,000 per month and will be paid by the traders' association of Lajpat Nagar. This particular smog tower will treat the air in a circumference area of 500-750 square meters and will be able to treat 2,50,000 to 6,00,000 cubic metre of air per day. View the full article
  14. Jackie Shroff’s daughter Krishna Shroff might not have any plans to make her debut in Bollywood, but the lady surely knows how to keep herself in limelight. Krishna is reportedly enjoying vacations with her boyfriend, Eban Hyams, who is a basketball player by profession. The couple started dating this year, and looks like the duo is having fun together. Krishna recently posted a lovely photo with boyfriend on Instagram captioned, “Always making me laugh. Grateful to have met my best friend, twin soul, and love this year.” While the picture surely turned the heads up, the thing that garnered the most attention was Tiger Shroff’s comment on sister’s upload, possibly inviting a desi bro-sis war on internet. Tiger commented, “Eban…poor guy”. Well, this isn’t the first time Tiger has done this, and tried to tease her sister. The War actor previously commented on a bikini-clad photo of Krishna with a nauseated emoji. Hmm… waiting for a sibling war to start! For the record, Krishna is three years younger than Tiger, and has clearly remarked that she has no plans to become an actor. The actor said in an interview in 2018 that “when it comes to acting, she has always been very clear from the beginning that it's not something that intrigues her. She is not the one to face the camera."
  15. Few things in life make us as happy as finding true love makes one feel. Watching someone blossom into a beautiful human after the kind of effect real love can have on them is a visual delight and social media was blessed by one such gorgeous aesthetic in the form of a lovely picture of this 'newly married' couple. Now you're probably thinking why and how a generic couple picture makes any difference during the shaadi season and the plethora of shots already flooding our news feed. This couple is the wonderful 65-year-old Lakshmi Ammal and her husband Kochaniyan Menon who is 67-years-old. They fell in love at an old age home, a place that is usually associated with sad endings for our elders, and married amidst a lot of love and affection. Kerala: 67-year-old Kochaniyan Menon and a 65-year-old Lakshmi Ammal, tied the knot yesterday at a government-run old-age home in Ramavarmapuram in Thrissur district. pic.twitter.com/EXJeXyv34G — ANI (@ANI) December 29, 2019 Lakshmi took refuge at this old age home after she lost her husband and Kochaniyan was abandoned by his family when he also started living here. The two connected well and fell in love. They wanted to solemnise their relationship and the good people at the old age home decided to make it happen. Soon this beautiful love story reached the agriculture minister VS Shivakumar and he decided to be a part of this journey for them. The wonderful pictures of this couple are warming all our hearts on a cold winter day. That's so beautiful and satisfying that love exist â¤ð — Backchod Indian (@IndianBackchod) December 29, 2019 How specially sweet is that. What I loved the most is the joy on everyone's face in the first to pictures âºï¸ — ASAP (@aniketsapre) December 29, 2019 Never too late for together towards tomorrow! — OwlSpeaks (@SpeaksOwl) December 29, 2019 For anyone who believes that a broken heart cannot love again, that once a certain age is crossed, finding true love is a myth, this example proves that the society puts a certain kind of unfathomable perception over our heads and we continue believing it with our eyes shut. This is what true love looks like, so never let that love go to waste, for it will come back to you one day. View the full article
  16. American comedian Kevin Hart's wife breaks down in the middle of an episode from the latest Netflix docuseries revolving around his life. The docuseries focuses on his personal life and includes the recent events, including his cheating scandal and the Oscars drama that he went through. The series titled "Kevin Hart: Don't F**k This Up" has grabbed a lot of eyeballs mainly for his wife, Eniko Parrish's revelations about how she found out about the scandal. According to her, Parrish was seven to eight months pregnant when the bombshell was dropped on her courtesy a DM. "How I found out was a direct message (DM). I don't know who it was," she said. "They sent me an edited video of Kevin, and you know, another woman... I was pregnant at that time. I was about seven or eight months pregnant. I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately and I just lost it. I called him, I'm crying, I'm like pissed. Right then and there, I kept saying, 'How the f**k did you let that happen?'" Parrish said she felt Hart had "publicly humiliated" her. She spoke about how it felt suffocating that the entire drama surrounding her husband was on Instagram. Parrish recalled how "it was an ongoing fight all the time" and that she had told her husband that if this was what he wanted to do, she couldn't be part of it. However, her baby was what helped her "maintain a level head" at the time and she kept worrying about her family. Parrish said she wanted her child Kenzo to be able to grow up and get to know his father hence she forgave him. She credit Hart by saying "he's a better man now because of it [scandal]". The actor had admitted to cheating on his wife in 2017. He had written a lengthy Instagram post on how Hart had "put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did". In a later scene from the documentary, Hart can be seen with his wife and child. He can be heard in the voiceover saying: "The toughest thing was just telling my wife. That conversation was a tough conversation. There was no easy way to have that conversation." The actor said that the worst part of such a behaviour was knowing how it made others, closest to someone, feel. He said by looking at the effect it had on Parrish, he was able to feel her pain. "That really tore me up," he said. Hart's wife said she believes in second chances "so, as long as he behaves, we're good."
  17. Much before he starred in Sooraj Barjatya's Main Pyaar Kiya, Salman Khan faced the camera for the first time for an ad for an aerated drink. Many of us don't know how he bagged his first ad and well, there's a hilarious story behind him landing his first project. Salman, back then, had no idea that his attempts to woo a woman would land him an ad. Yes, that's true. For all those who don't know, the actor was first seen in the ad for Campa Cola. And recently, on The Tara Sharma Show, he opened up about the hilarious incident that got him the big ad. © Campa Cola Salman Khan revealed that his attempts to impress a girl, who later turned out to the director's girlfriend, got him a commercial for the cola brand. “I was swimming one day at the Sea Rock club and I saw this really beautiful, young lady walking past in a red sari. To impress her, I dived in the water and being such an idiot, I swam the whole length underwater. So when I came out on the other side, she was not there. The next day, I get a call from Far Productions, saying that they want me to do a cold drink commercial – it was Campa Cola, at that point in time. I was wondering, 'How did this come about?'” he said. For those who haven't seen the ad, here's the video: He went on to add, “I went to meet Kailash with my aunt. I said, 'Okay, done. But who gave you my number?' He said, 'That girl that you were trying to impress is my girlfriend. She told me that this guy swims really well. We were supposed to shoot that in the Maldives and they did want somebody who knew how to swim underwater. Me and Jackie's (Shroff) wife Ayesha were the only two who could do those laps underwater. That's how I faced the camera for the first time.” On a side note, Salman's latest release Dabangg 3 has been doing extremely well at the box office as it has entered the 100-crore club. Dabangg 3 is the 15th film in Salman's career to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic circuit after Dabangg, Kick, Ready, Dabangg 2, Ek Tha Tiger, Bodyguard, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Jai Ho, Tubelight, Tiger Zinda Hai, Race 3, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Bharat, and Sultan. Salman will next be seen on the big screen in Prabhu Deva's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. View the full article
  18. Recently, Deepika Padukone revealed that how emotionally exhausting and taxing her role in the much awaited film Chhapaak was for her. She was seen telling in many of her interviews how she burned a piece of her prosthetic makeup to disassociate herself from the role. According to Indiatimes, Deepika recently confessed in a video interview that her depression resurfaced during playing the role of Malti in the film Chhapaak. © Fox Star Studios She said, “I needed to have my counselor on the sets of the movie with me. It came out of nowhere and I was also caught off-guard. I started feeling it coming on and I thought maybe I am just tired or it is the long hours. But then it got really bad and I started feeling claustrophobic. It was very tough for me emotionally. To think about those days and put me emotionally through that.” She also said that even during her wedding celebrations, the role of Malti stayed with her, which she couldn't easily let go. © Fox Star Studios Meghna Gulzar's directorial Chhapaak is based on a real-life story of an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who suffered an acid attack at the age of 15, in the year 2005. Laxmi had to undergo several surgeries before she started helping other acid attack survivors and promoted campaigns to stop such attacks from happening. Chhapaak also stars Vikrant Massey in a lead role alongside Deepika and is scheduled to release on January 10, 2020. View the full article
  19. It is 2019 according to the calendar, but seems like our nation is stuck in a wheel of time where the word 'sense' made zero sense. Every day we read or witness something which is absurd beyond measure for our brain cells. A school in Karnataka is facing some wrath after a viral video from a cultural event went viral on social media. Apparently, the students were enacting the Babri Masjid demolition and chants of 'Jai Shri Ram' were echoed. Karnataka school run by RSS man makes kids 'demolish' Babri Masjid in a play The Chief Guests for the event were Union Minister of Chemicals and Fertilizers, DV Sadananda Gowda; Puducherry Governor Kiran Bedi; and several Ministers from Karnataka. pic.twitter.com/hVdqxvfdvI — Sanyukta (@dramadhikari) December 16, 2019 Surprisingly, the chief guests for this function included some eminent personalities, which include Union Minister of Chemicals and Fertilizers, DV Sadananda Gowda; Puducherry Governor Kiran Bedi; and several ministers from Karnataka as well.

  20. Anand Mahindra took to his Twitter and shared a picture of a shayari (couplet) to explain the importance of mobile phones in everyone's life today. However, he committed one mistake thinking that the couplet was actually written by Gulzar. Turns out, Gulzar didn't write it and the internet pointed it out soon after Anand Mahindra shared it. He shared an image that said, "Khud se zyada sambhal kar rakhta hoon mobile apna, kyunki rishtey saare ab isi mein kaid hain (I care more about my phone than myself because all my relationships are trapped in it).” Thank you Gulzarji, for giving me the logic for remaining wedded to my device! ððð½.

But just want to point out that I couldn't find any reference of Gulzar sahab making this shayari, so unsure of its verification.

  21. Kartik Aaryan's promotion strategy for his latest film, Pati, Patni, Aur Woh has been the most interesting and engaging strategy we've seen in a while. From dancing over the top of a Marks and Spencer's store in Delhi, to dancing with Deepika Padukone to the #DheemeDheemeChallenge song, and near to the release of the film, his marketing team has also added a sartorial twist to the promotions which could possibly be an inspiration from the film War's promotion. Remember how Hritik (Roshan) and Tiger (Shroff) got memes printed on t-shirts and wore them for the promotion of their film? They would be spotted casually stepping out and (probably) going to the gym in a t-shirt with the other's face and a dad joke on it to engage their fans. © Manav Manglani/ Instagram Well, Kartik Aaryan's character in Pati, Patni Aur Woh called Abhinav 'Chintu' Tyagi has a moustache and a distinct personality. So, for the promotions, Kartik and Ananya got a bunch of hoodies and t-shirts with Chintu's face on it along with the hashtag: #ChintuTyagi. Take a look here: © Manav Manglani/ Instagram In fact, both Kartik and Ananya Pandey timed it so well, it almost looks like they're twinning. © Manav Manglani/ Instagram Another major aspect from Kartik Aaryan's outfit are his super long white sneakers. If you take a closer look at them you'll notice that they're not just chunky but also have an impressive width. Kartik Aaryan's outfits are clearly taking promoting a film to the next level.

  22. Recently, Akshay Kumar, along with Karan Johar, helped two stuntmen who injured themselves while they were rehearsing for the launch of one of the songs from his upcoming film Good Newwz. According to HT, Bittoo and Hari Singh Injured themselves while rehearsing for the song launch of 'Chandigharh Mein' and the actor with the help of Karan Johar arranged for an ambulance for them. View this post on Instagram #ChandigarhMein at #ChandigarhUniversity wasð¥ð¥ð¥Literally! Thank you for the love ♥ï¸ #GoodNewwz @kiaraaliaadvani @badboyshah @harrdysandhu @raj_a_mehta A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Nov 27, 2019 at 6:58am PST Akshay Kumar wasn't present at the time of the mishap but he made sure that both the stuntmen reach Mumbai on time and get the required treatment. Bittoo and Hari Singh work with senior director Sham Kaushal. Sham Kaushal said, “I sent three members of my team for the rehearsal. It was important to check if the wire work was smooth and performing the stunt was a safe proposition. As part of the stunt, Bittoo and Hari Singh were attached to the winch machine and were performing [stunts mid-air]. But during the second round of rehearsals, the machine collapsed due to a technical malfunction and the boys had a freefall from a height of nearly 10-12 feet.” He also added, “Akshay paaji was at a shoot in Hyderabad, but was keeping a constant check on the boys. On Friday, he and Karan's team arranged for an air ambulance so that Bittoo could be flown down to Mumbai. Now, he has been advised two months of bed rest." Akshay Kumar had earlier launched a stuntmen insurance scheme in 2017. The policy covers the cost of accidental or injury treatment for a stuntman up to Rs 6,00,000 in 4000 hospitals through a cashless system. Also, in case of death, around Rs 10 lakh will be given to the nominee chosen by the stuntman. On the work front, Akshay Kumar will be seen with Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in his next film Good Newwz which is set to release on December 27. View the full article
  23. The basic truth of life lies in the fact that it is transient. In many ways we're all born with that knowledge. However, if there is one other thing that is synonymous to such 'overnight' changes, it is politics. And we are not saying this merely based on the recent political fiasco that we all witnessed in Maharashtra (or maybe we are… *winks*). Given how the kissa 'kursi' ka played out in the Maratha state over the course of the past month, it wouldn't be wrong to talk about the impermanence of power and authority that comes with politics. What one has today might be taken away from them overnight, and figurative overthrowing from 'power' shall still reign high so long as we live in a democratic country. © Getty Images But while some politicians enjoy the 'quirks' of satta or popular mandate for years on end, there have also existed ministers who have held important positions for just a couple of hours before having to resign. We've curated a list of top five such ministers who have had the shortest tenure as Chief Ministers of Indian states. 1. Jagdambika Pal (1 Day) © BCCL Back in 1998, former Congress minister was made the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister after the then governor dismissed the Kalyan Singh government before restoring them into power again. Which meant, Pal assumed the chair for merely a day's time. 2. Harish Rawat (1 Day) © BCCL In 2016, Congress MP from the state of Uttarakhand, Harish Rawat, had to step down as the state's CM only 24 hours after assuming the chair. This happened after a number of Congress MLAs pulled back their support and the Congress-led government became a minority. President's rule was, eventually, imposed in the state. 3. Devendra Fadnavis (3 Days) © BCCL The most recent addition to this list, Devendra Fadnavis. He was recently (and kinda secretly) sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra before he finally resigned from the position, having failed to maintain the majority. Uddhav Thackeray, following the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance, is all set to formally assume the position now. 4. BS Yeddyurappa (3 Days) © BCCL Last year, Yeddyurappa became Karnataka's CM for three days before he lost the opportunity to continue due to his failure to gather the set numbers ahead of the floor test. HD Kumaraswamy-led JD(S)-Congress government took over post that. 5. Nabam Tuki (4 Days) © Wikipedia Back in 2016, Congress minister Nabam Tuki served as the Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister for four days before resigning due to internal fights within his party.

  24. It's more than comforting to know that we live in a world that's replete with humanity and compassion. Recently, in a heartwarming incident, a photo of a small girl from Hyderabad peeping into the classroom with an empty bowl has surfaced on the social media, which has also now led to getting her admission in the same school. The picture showcases a girl, identified as Mothi Divya by news reports, waiting outside a classroom of a government school, in the hope of getting some food. The picture, since then, has gone viral on social media. Interestingly, the girl is now enrolled in the same school and will get a mid-day meal every day. © BCCL According to The Indian Express, the viral photo was originally published in a Telegu daily Eenadu and was clicked at the Deval Jham Singh Government High School in Gundimalkapur. The girl, belonging to a marginalised community, wasn't a student at the school but visited the school premises daily in the hope of food every day without fail. Divya is a daughter of garbage collector living in the nearby slum and she visited the school once her parents left for work, reports said. Thankfully, the picture caught the attention of the National Convenor Venkat Reddy at MV Foundation, which works for girl child rights. Here's what he wrote while sharing the picture online, “Why not this child is enrolled and have her right to food and right to education...it's a shame.” Reddy, later coordinated with his foundation and a few other volunteers and spoke with the school authorities in order to get Divya enrolled in the same school. Reddy also shared another post, wherein he expressed how happy the little girl is to finally get admission in the school and enjoy a good meal daily. Isn't it heartwarming? View the full article
