  1. After the arrest of Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra in the alleged pornography case, actor Karan Kundrra has found himself in a bizarre situation and only because he shares the same last name as Raj Kundra. Many people mistook Karan Kundrra for Raj Kundra and his pictures were also used instead of the businessman alongside the ongoing pornography case. In a recent interview, Karan Kundrra expressed that he woke up one day and saw that many people thought that it was him who was arrested in the case and started tagging and tweeting about him. #staypositive pic.twitter.com/pzLUdX7Sc0 — Karan Kundrra (@kkundrra) May 2, 2021 The actor also expressed that it took a while for him to figure out what it was and that they wanted to tag Raj Kundra and instead tagged him. He further elaborated saying that while some thought that it was a mistake, some also thought that the person arrested for making porn is him. He also said that some people even abused him for the same and started tagging him on Twitter and then Karan’s fans corrected the trolls. Karan also expressed that this wasn’t the first time that this confusion happened. Earlier as well, the actor was mistaken for Shilpa Shetty’s husband. He also revealed that back then, he took it on a lighter note. View this post on Instagram A few days ago, Raj Kundra was arrested in connection with an adult film racket case. The arrest shocked everyone. According to reports, it is being said that he started this adult film company 18 months ago during lockdown which also showed rapid growth. Mumbai Police had arrested Raj Kundra after booking him under various sections of the IPC and IT Act as he is said to be the key conspirator in the case. View the full article
  2. Swara Bhasker recently reacted when some trolls compared Taapsee Pannu and her to table tennis star Manika Batra. The meme called Manika Batra more beautiful than both Swara and Taapsee and also said that she was more talented than both of them. It said, “More beautiful than woke actors like Taapsee or Swara Bhaskar and more talented than them. One and only Manika Batra.” View this post on Instagram To which Swara Bhasker responded saying, “Many congratulations to #ManikaBatra and every other female achiever in any field!!!” Swara has often been trolled and last month, when her film Veere Di Wedding celebrated three years of its release, she gave a shout-out to her haters. She shared a video from the film and said, “3 YEARS (June 01) to the birth of an obsession - my nafrati chintus obsession with my fingers! Happy 3rd to the film that gave rise to an economy: the two rupees per tweet employment guarantee scheme that it seems i launched for my trolls #veerediwedding #sakshislays.” View this post on Instagram Earlier, in an interview, Swara talked about how harassment of women on social media has been normalized. She said, “We deal with it and we’re almost kind of okay with it. That’s why you see Twitter timelines of a lot of people, including me, resemble those streets where men are passing comments at women. So, what happens to me when I walk down the road — chherkhani or eve-teasing — is exactly what happens to me on my Twitter timeline, too.” What do you think?

  3. LG made a face mask last year that looked like something Bane would wear while facing Batman in Gotham. However, now the company has announced a new iteration of the futuristic face mask that comes with an built-in air purifier. The new design of the face mask is far less scary as it gets rid of the side plates that made it look scary in the first place. © LG The new mask will first launch in Thailand and then might make its way to the rest of the world. It’s smaller in size even though it has the same dual-fan tech as the original PuriCare face mask. These fans control the airflow automatically by “sensing the user’s breathing patterns to make breathing easier and more natural.” I don’t know about you, but the new PuriCare face mask might be the perfect thing to get due to the current COVID-19 situation. It’s even perfect for users in India who do not want to be exposed to highly polluted air in cities like New Delhi. What’s great about the updated face mask is that it doesn’t look too out of this world and resembles a normal face mask. The biggest upgrade is the fact that it comes with microphones and speakers so that a user can easily communicate with others. The new face mask also comes with a 1,000 mAh battery which means it can last for about 8 hours on a single charge. The face mask takes two hours to fully charge once the battery has been depleted. © LG LG says that users can hold a full conversation without ever taking the mask off. The company also said that the new face mask’s sound system hit a 0.75 (Excellent) rating on the Korea Electronics Technology Institute’s Sound Transmission Index. While this mask is perfect for everybody, the company is currently focusing on athletes. In fact, the Thai Olympic team wore the mask as well to promote the product before they embarked on the journey. LG hasn’t mentioned whether the new PuriCare mask actually prevents COVID-19 as the company is still conducting extensive studies. While most air purifiers are able to target harmful particles, LG will not confirm anything about preventing the spread of COVID-19 with the PuriCare right now. The PuriCare may launch in other regions depending on local regulators, however the company has not provided any information about which countries might get the PuriCare next. View the full article
  4. Ayan Mukherji and Ranbir Kapoor are two best friends who managed to impress the entire world with their beautifully made movie Wake Up Sid. In 2014, Ayan decided to take a bigger risk and announced a sci-fi magnum opus called Brahmastra which was supposed to star his BFF Ranbir, Alia Bhatt and the legendary Big B in lead roles. It has been over 7 years and like a ‘tareekh pe tareekh’ joke, the makers have been postponing the release of the film and looks like the post production is taking forever to complete. © Twitter An old tweet from 2016 by trade analyst Taran Adarsh has gone viral with people demanding a Brahmastra update. Fans are mocking the delay and the memes around the same are hilarious. Okay, so we've been hearing about #Brahmastra for 7 years now. And guess what, we still DON'T know the exact release date. We don't even know whether film is complete or not. I just hope all the hardwork & wait pay off. #RanbirKapoor #AliaBhatt https://t.co/rm9qXTQTgs — Aavishkar Gawande (@aavishhkar) July 22, 2021Class 10 me tha jb announced hui thi Ab https://t.co/cJweGoWlZr Final year me hu — Shahrukh Ahmad (@imshahrukhahmad) July 22, 2021I was in college when this pic got released and now I started working!! I have some progress, but there's no progress in your movie #Brahmastra WE WANT BRAHMASTRA UPDATE pic.twitter.com/6VBTCmpIuY — V̾ (@RKs_Tilllast) July 22, 2021it's been 196491618793728 light years when #Brahmastra last update was released @karanjohar @DharmaMovies WE WANT BRAHMASTRA UPDATE pic.twitter.com/JAPqKmfkWP — V̾ (@RKs_Tilllast) July 22, 2021The movie was finally supposed to release on Christmas 2019 but the makers pushed the date for the umpteenth time due to the Pandemic. The last schedule is yet to be shot in Budapest. Ranbir and Alia started dating while filming for this movie and looking at the pace of its non existent release date, seems like the couple will even tie the knot before we actually get to see them together on the big screen.

  5. The Covid-induced quarantine led to several changes in the work environment. From decking up for office to sitting at home pant-less on Zoom calls, we all have come a long way. There was a time when no one had even heard about a conference meeting on Zoom chatroom. But now, thanks to the pandemic, we could locomote to the online world and learn new ways to have a professional life, from the comfort of our homes. © iStock Many people shared their experiences of working remotely. Some situations were cringeworthy, while others were downright hilarious. We have heard a toilet flush during a Supreme Court conference call and people naked on the screen. In July, a couple was caught having *** during a class online, and this came from Ho Chi Minh City. The incidents are countless, and some are embarrassing too. © iStock © YouTube/Helluvachic More recently, though, a video of a woman went viral. She had been wearing the same shirt for 264 days, ever since the pandemic hit and no one in her company ever noticed it. So, when Jem confessed the same in front of her colleagues, they had no idea what she was talking about. However, similarly, Alexandra Ceberio's rant about her ensemble recently went viral. The 24-year-old woman was heard talking about her outfit and had skipped entirely that she was not on mute during the conference call. Take a look at the incident here. She had recently started working as a sales job person and mentioned that when she joined the call, there was no one around, and the cameras were off. She then started ranting about her outfit to send the funny clip to her friends, surmising that no one was listening. But, unfortunately, a colleague did hear her. And, while Ceberio said, "My work from home fit today, some f*****g bulls***, 'cause I got ready and everyone has their cameras off. I got this frizzy ass gym hair from yesterday, this shirt is from..." the colleague responded, "Hey guys, I can hear you, just so you're aware." This incident left Ceberio stunned and embarrassed as she heard her colleague's voice. However, her fellow mates on TikTok said it's common these days, due to the WFH situation. © YouTube/Helluvachic However, Alexandra was glad that her new boss wasn't on the call. She also told Buzzfeed, "Luckily my boss or anyone important wasn't on it, but it was still so embarrassing. After the video ended, I muted myself and literally tried to change my voice for the rest of the call. I did not speak unless I was spoken to." If you have had such funny moments during Zoom meets, do let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  6. We have all heard of ‘old habits die hard’. Taking of which, Kangana Ranaut strongly reacted on Tuesday to the arrest of Shilpa Shetty’s husband, Raj Kundra. This was after Raj Kundra was arrested for making and distributing pornographic films via mobile apps. She again said that she will expose the ‘underbelly of Bullywood’, and also expressed she plans to do that through her upcoming production venture Tiku Weds Sheru. She took to her Instagram story and wrote, “This is why I call movie industry a gutter…all that glitter is not gold, I am going to expose the underbelly of Bullywood in my upcoming production called Tiku weds Sheru…we need a strong value system and conscience in the creative industry and of course a whip.” Check out the post here- © Kangana Ranaut IG For the uninitiated, Raj Kundra was recently arrested by Mumbai Police in connection with making and distributing pornographic films. He has now been identified as a key conspirator in the case. On Tuesday, he was brought before Mumbai court and was sent in police custody till July 23. View this post on Instagram Raj Kundra was arrested based on a complaint by a woman, who said that she was forced into doing a porn film on the promise of a film role. The police has made over nine arrests so far. They’ve also arrested Raj Kundra’s close friend Ryan Thorpe in the case. View this post on Instagram The Mumbai police commissioner said in a statement on Monday, “There was a case registered with the Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some Apps. We’ve arrested Mr. Raj Kundra in this case on 19/7/21 as he appears to be the key conspirator of this. We have sufficient evidence regarding this.” What do you think?

  7. Actress Kangana Ranaut, after getting banned from Twitter, has actively taken to Instagram stories to express her views and opinions about current affairs. For example, the recent development of the Pegasus spyware and how it can secretly activate the phone's camera and get access to messages, emails, important data and photos in a device, seemed to be the inspiration for her latest post. Considering that Kangana usually talks about recent topics, her recent remark came in right on the heels of the leak, even though she claimed otherwise. © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut She took to Instagram and, in a lengthy note, spoke about 'kings' and how they disguised themselves to secretly visit the remotest parts of their country to know what others were discussing and talking about. She cited the example from Ramayana. However, after the long post, she clarified that she wasn't talking about the Pegasus leak. © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut She said, "Even in ancient times greatest kings used to disguise and secretly visit the remotest parts of their country, people and their homes to know to hear what their subjects talking or discussing, this exercise is a part of administration, biggest example is in Ramayana, during one such visit lord Rama got to know about Maa Sita's perception among general people when he heard them secretly." © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut She wrote, "No big deal if the king wants to know about antisocial element's whereabouts or general issues of people and their mindset. It is his right, prerogative and business to keep his eyes and ears open. So hyenas stop crying foul and No I am not talking about #pegasus Ha ha ha." What #Pegasus does to your phone? Graphic from BBC. pic.twitter.com/GS9VUT2iqD — Stanly Johny (@johnstanly) July 20, 2021 For the unversed, Pegasus is a malware that gets access to iPhones and Android devices. It allows for pulling all the data. The Washington Post recently reported that around 180 journalists, 600 politicians and government people and more than 60 business executives were allegedly targeted by the NSO Group. The Wire reported 40 journalists, two serving ministers in the Narendra Modi Government, oppositions, constitutional authority and new and former heads of security organisations and several business people in the database, according to reports. © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut After Kangana's account was banned on Twitter, the actress asserted in a statement that it's the entitlement of 'white' people to 'enslave a brown person.' She has also been explicit about using Instagram and said in a post that while it helps influencers, it's not a great place for conversations and the exchange of ideas. She wrote, "I am not interested in your clothes and skin I want to see deeper I want to see your mind and intellect." On the work front, Kangana will soon be seen in Thalaivi. Some of her other projects include Tejas, Dhaakad, etc. View the full article
  8. Bollywood has a long history of portraying the hero as the ideal man who is macho, a fighter, a protector and a gentleman who isn’t gentle, but a man. Or as they say in the movies, asli mard! However, the badass dialogues about being a ‘real man’ end up becoming nothing but an endorsement of toxic masculinity. © Zee Studios These movie dialogues must have gotten a big cheer from the audience in the theatre but lately, we have been realising how problematic and false they are. They are actually guilty of fueling the wrong idea of manliness and further promoting social and gender stereotypes that real men are expected to abide by. © Balaji Motion Pictures Here are 7 such iconic dialogues from Bollywood movies that have gotten the idea of ‘being a man’, all wrong: 1. "Ek mard ka sir sirf teen auraton ke saamne jhukta hai. Ek apni ma ke saamne, ek durga maa ke saamne aur..." (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) © Dharma Productions This dialogue reeks of a male’s ego. A real mard bows his head in front of a woman only if she is his mother, a goddess or the woman he loves. Someone needs to tell Rahul that a real man respects everyone equally and doesn’t think his masculinity is compromised if he bows to greet a woman that isn’t one of those three. We don’t know if it was a tactic to propose, but Rani should’ve just run as far as she could have. 2. Yeh kaisi shirt pehni hai, aur ladkiyon wali perfume laga rakhi hai. Tumhara naam Jay Mehra nahi, Gay Mehra hona chiye tha” (Prem Aggan) © FK International Here comes the ultimate gender stereotype about how a man should dress to look like a well, man, and not gay. This woman tells this guy his name should be 'Gay Mehra' because he dresses like a woman. It’s sad how men who wear androgynous clothes are still ridiculed in the same way. 3. Mard ko dard nahi hota (Mard) © MKD Films This popular dialogue has promoted the wrong idea of masculinity for years now and is still used by people to show off their mardangi or assert the same notion on other men. However, it’s a social lie that cages men to feel anything, be it pain or emotions. 4. “Tu ladki ke peeche bhagega, ladki paison ke peeche bhagegi. Tu paison ke peeche bhagega, ladki tere peeche bhagegi" (Wanted) © Zee Studios According to Bhai's logic, the only thing any man ever needs to get the girl is dollar bills. If you have an impressive bank balance, women will run after you blindly, otherwise, you aren’t worthy of dating. No wonder, a man’s value in an arranged marriage is reduced to how much he’s earning. 5. “Ladki jab roti hai na bahut saare reasons hote hai ... par jab ladka rota hai ... reason ladki hi hoti hai” (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!) © Balaji Motion Pictures This line literally translates to ‘men don’t cry’. Or rather, men aren’t allowed to cry. Unless, of course, a girl broke his heart. Then, it’s allowed. It perpetuates the most harmful social stereotype that men don’t show their feelings and sobbing for little things is simply out of the question. 6. Usne teri khuddari ko lalkara hai, Kya kar raha hai yaar… mard ban mard (Dil Chahta Hai) © Excel Entertainment As much as we love this movie and find this scene funny, the dialogue is plain problematic. Aamir urges Saif to man up and confront his girlfriend for disconnecting his call in rage. It shows a man isn’t ‘a man’ if he puts up with his girlfriend’s tantrums, not a khuddar one, for sure. 7. Bande bike kyun chalate hai, macho dikhne ke liye … jean kyun pehente hai, macho dikhne ke liye. Bike ho ya ghar, handle hamesha apne haath mein. Warna bhabhi kabhi izzat nahi karegi (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi) © Yash Raj Films If society wasn’t enough to put pressure on men to shoulder all the responsibilities of a household, there are friends like Bobby who make sure the patriarchy is still alive and thriving. And, the thing about looking macho is where we go wrong and encourage toxic masculinity. View the full article
  9. Former Indian middle order batsman Yuvraj SIngh has commended Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his presence in international cricket by suggesting that he has already achieved a high and respectful status in the game at such a young age. “Virat showed some great promise when he came on board. The moment he got the opportunities, he grabbed them. That’s how he took a spot in the World Cup (Indian squad) because he was very young at that time. And it was between him and Rohit. At that time, Virat was scoring runs. That’s the reason, Virat got the spot. And compared to now, there is a complete change in him,” Yuvraj told The Times of India. "Virat Kohli already become a "Legend" - Yuvraj Singh pic.twitter.com/lvbEjLvdOu — harika (@haarika888) July 20, 2021 “I have seen him grow and train in front of me. He was probably the hardest worker, very disciplined with his training. When he was scoring runs, you could see that he is somebody who wants to be the best player in the world. He had that kind of an attitude. He has got that swag." “He was scoring a lot of runs and then became the captain. Sometimes you get bogged down, but when he became captain, his consistency became even better. At almost 30, he has achieved a lot of things. View this post on Instagram “People become legends when they retire. At 30, he already became a legend. It was really great to watch him grow as a cricketer. Hope he finishes on a high, because he has got a lot of time,” Yuvraj further said. It goes without saying that Kohli has proven himself to be a modern-day cricketing marvel and the fact that the followers of the game from all over the world acknowledge him to be a top-level batter at the moment, despite some severe struggles in his form, only doubles down on his iconic status. View this post on Instagram Making his international debut in 2008, the Delhi-born has experienced some heart-breaking moments like the World Cup 2019 and the World Test Championships final losses but he has also become the highest international run-scorer among active cricketers over the last decade and continues to be the only player in the world to average more than 50 runs in all three formats. Nonetheless, the non-believers of Kohli simply decided to overlook everything that he’d achieved and went on to challenge what Singh said about the skipper: A captain who hasen't won a single big tournament becomes Legend nowdays. IPL, T20, 50 over WC, WTC, Champion's Trophy..Yuvraj dosen't understand meaning of Legend i guess. Personal achievements in sub-continent flat wickets do not create legends.

  10. Bollywood, or films, in general, put an actor under such scrutiny that every little so-called "imperfection" of one's body is subjected to criticism. (One only needs to ask professional models). As a result, there are plenty of actors and models who end up going under the knife to look even better on the screen. © Istock Well, while sometimes it works out, many times, it certainly doesn't. If one is to listen to what people are saying on social media these days, retired Bollywood actress Ayesha Takia Azmi is speculated to have gone under the knife, with people visibly taken aback at what she's done with her face. © BCCL The 35-year-old actress, who appeared in films like Tarzan: The wonder car and Wanted, recently posted a boomerang of herself on Instagram in green ethnic wear. Soon after the post went up, there was a barrage of comments from her followers who were apparently left disappointed with her new look, with many suggesting that she had done something to her lips as well as the rest of her face. View this post on Instagram One user commented, "Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeks....what has she done to herself ...she looked so pretty earlier" © Instagram/Ayesha Takia Another user said, "Pehle hi acche lagte the (You used to look good earlier)" © Instagram/Ayesha Takia Many other people too commented on her post, with most criticizing her for changing her appearance. © Instagram/Ayesha Takia © Instagram/Ayesha Takia © Instagram/Ayesha Takia © Instagram/Ayesha Takia © Instagram/Ayesha Takia While we are certain that online trolling is certainly not a helping hand in a tough time like the pandemic, Ayesha had also opened up on the whole debate earlier. “Having personally been through many incidents of trolling and workplace bullying…I wish to spread the word about this and I want you to speak up please if someone is making you feel less, small, or worthless. Please know that you are incredible and unique. You are meant to be here and fight for what you deserve. You are bright and different, you must not let them win.” said Ayesha. View the full article
  11. It is probably every actor’s dream to star in a magnum opus directed by the one person who does grandeur in cinema like no one else: Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The craft master behind movies like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Raam Leela has been busy for a very long time in prepping up for his next grand movie, Gangubai Kathiawadi, which stars Alia Bhatt in the lead role. In the background, for several years now, the title of Baiju Bawra has been floating in media outlets and B-town, with a lot of A-listers' names being associated with this big project. Rumour had it that Ranbir Kapoor was signed for this movie and this was actually also a catalyst of his reconciliation with his master SLB, who launched him with Saawariya opposite Sonam Kapoor. However, as per a few reports, RK is probably opting out of this project and the sources cited that “Ranbir has expressed his confusion to Bhansali and the team as well. He is not sure of Baiju Bawra and with another Dharma project in his kitty; RK doesn’t seem to be keen anymore on working with SLB again. Not many know that he did not have a great experience working with him during Saawariya and they have never done a film after that. So it’s most likely that Ranbir is going to opt-out of the project, although nothing was ever locked on papers”. © Instagram Now, the news doing the rounds speak that none other than Kartik Aaryan might be filling these boots and will probably be working with the ace director. © Instagram Kartik has been spotted at SLB’s office quite a few times now and looks like this will be an interesting project. Earlier Kartik fans were upset over the evident nepotism in Bollywood after reports of him being replaced in Dharma Productions Dostana 2 did the rounds. The original Baiju Bawra was based on a musician by that name and starred Bharat Bhushan playing the titular role opposite Meena Kumari. View the full article
  12. The pandemic cooped us all in the four walls of our houses and forced us to bring our work to our home. It’s been more than a year that most of us have been working from home and while some can’t wait to go back to their office, there are some who would rather not. People who belong to the latter section recently discussed why they don’t want to go back to work, anytime soon. © iStock While the indefinite EODs and never- ending zoom call meetings can be incredibly stressful, it is still better than putting on pants in the morning and being stuck in traffic to get to the workspace can be unpleasant. Plus, for people dealing with mental health issues like anxiety, depression and more, it can be overwhelming to meet hundreds of people on a daily basis. © iStock Remote work allows us to work in our comfort zone, be it alone or with our family or friends around. Apart from that, it gives the flexibility to work according to our time and comfort, without having the fear of being observed and judged. Also, people have been working from cafes, a friend's house and even from an Airbnb as and when they please. © iStock People struggling with mental illness and mental health issues shared how work from home has been more of a blessing than a bane for them. Someone on Twitter shared, “As someone who suffers from depression, anxiety, and insomnia, some days the idea of going into an office (or, frankly, leaving my home at all) is just ... completely overwhelming. but I can function well enough to do my work at home on my own terms.” And, more people said they could relate to it. as someone who suffers from depression, anxiety, and insomnia, some days the idea of going into an office (or, frankly, leaving my home at all) is just ... completely overwhelming. but i can function well enough to do my work at home on my own terms — heather schmelzlen (@anchorlines) July 14, 2021 Here is the wholesome thread that is a testimony of how work from home has been really helpful for people struggling with mental health issues. it has 100% been instrumental in me 1) doing well at my job 2) balancing everything else, mental health included. Not having to worry about functioning in a place filled with other people for several hours a day is...beyond helpful. — melwrites (@melwrites5) July 14, 2021Yes this is so true. I have anxiety and sometimes am very low functioning. I never realized how draining coming into the office was until I WFH for a year. There's no way I can go back. I can't handle the stress anymore and I'm way happier now & feel more balanced. — Serahe (@SeraheWrites) July 15, 2021Me and my sensory issues had a DAY at the office today. I don’t know how long I can do this. WFH time was the most successful I’ve been able to feel since I was in my 20s. — Sarah B (@thesarahbot) July 14, 2021My anxiety disorder is pretty much manageable without medication largely due to working from home. Still get some spikes but not nearly as much or as severe. The trick tho is making sure I go outside and get some fresh air and take a walk. So theres a slight drawback there — Levi (Retroinactive) (@RetroInactive) July 16, 2021It is literally life changing for some of us. Also my friend who is in a wheelchair saying that she has spent the last year not having to make coworkers feel comfortable around her - no one knows she is disabled at her job now. (new team)...she is not thrilled about going back. — Cautiously Pessimistic (@PantherAlyxx) July 15, 2021It’s great that this ‘new normal’ has helped people deal with their mental health issues better. A lot of people also said that their productivity increased because they could focus better on work. © iStock While some people wouldn’t think twice before rejoining office, there are many who are finding this more beneficial for them.

  15. How many times have you dated a woman and noticed that she may have some quirks that would often come up in conversations or actions, which have nothing to do with you at all? Maybe it was when she got a little too possessive when you’ve given her no reason to be insecure? Or could be her trying to bail out of a perfectly fine relationship because she was scared? © Ram Gopal Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Well, it could be that you have on your hands is a partner with the infamous ‘daddy issues’. It’s when your partner may have dealt with a distant father while growing up and now, either projects their own insecurities or fears on your relationship or, chooses a similar spouse as their father, in hopes of working out their adult relationship, in a form of finally winning their father’s approval and love. © T-Series But before you go about confronting your partner about it, it’s always good to first be sure. Here are 4 signs to look out for if you think your partner is dealing with daddy issues - 1) She’s Attracted To Older Men © T-Series One of the most telling signs for daddy issues, but not the only one, is that most women dealing with such issues find themselves drawn to older men in their lives. Study says it could be because they have had an absent father figure while growing up, and somewhere deep down, always feel the need to fill that space. 2) She’s Too Possessive At Times © MAD Entertainment Seeing your partner hot and bothered, even a tad bit jealous is endearing in its own way. But when that possessiveness and jealousy transcends every other emotion, it is when your partner might be displaying signs of having daddy issues. Something that stems out of her need for attention that she would constantly want to be satisfied. 3) Fear Of Being Single © Ram Gopal Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Having felt abandoned in childhood, those who deal with daddy issues often fear being alone in their lives. And for that very reason, staying single doesn’t come easy to them. In fact, they may even find themselves becoming serial daters, because handling a break up and being by their lonesome haunts them. 4) Indulges In Self Sabotage © Vishesh Films Many times, subconsciously, a person struggling with daddy issues would end up sabotaging perfectly good and healthy relationships. Not because they would have a problem with it, but simply because they wouldn’t be used to what actually happy and healthy relationships are like, having experienced something completely different in their prime years while growing up. Now, chances are that if your partner is displaying most of these behaviours, they might be dealing with certain daddy issues in their life. Which, no matter how it seems, is never easy to live with. But that is where you come in, for if there is anyone who can help them walk through this, it is you. Here are 3 ways to keep in mind when you’re dating someone with serious daddy issues: 1) Tread With Patience & Support © MAD Entertainment It is a fact that no one can actually ‘fix’ you, but it always helps when you have a partner who is willing to stand with you while you figure your way out. If you believe your partner is struggling with daddy issues, you might already be aware of their fears and traumas. Use that knowledge to address their concerns and make sure you make them feel loved and heard. 2) Don’t Use It Against Them © iStock Fights, arguments and heated discussions can go south very fast, especially between couples. It is then that you have to remind yourself to never use her daddy issues against her, because it is a part of her life that she has no control over. A strained relationship with fathers leaves a lot of children with life-long scars and the last thing your partner wants is to be ridiculed over a part of their life they are still not over. 3) Take Professional Help © Red Chillies Entertainment As much as you try to be there for your partner, and even offer them unmatched support and understanding, it is best to recommend professional help. A therapist might be in a better position to help your partner work through their issues in the longer run. View the full article
  16. Virat Kohli, the batsman, has already achieved what most players only dream of accomplishing at the international stage but he still has a solid few years ahead of him to go even farther. Going by his batting stats, there’s no doubt he is already a modern-day great and if he keeps going on like this, he might make his case for being called the greatest of all time by the time he retires. But as they say, no one is perfect and Kohli’s case is no different, as he is yet to deliver silverware as a skipper and his leadership skills have come under huge scrutiny, especially since India lost the World Test Championship final to New Zealand last month. © Reuters Kohli has been an indispensable part of India’s batting line-up for several years now but his captaincy has been a hit-and-miss thus far and slowly, fans are starting to lose their patience. He has often been blamed for 'creating insecurity' in the team and former India player Mohammad Kaif also feels that this Indian team has 'no clarity' and players are insecure because they are not sure of their place in the side. He feels that Kohli believes in the current form more than anything and that’s why we have seen players like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishant Kishan and others making their international debut in recent times. “There is no clarity in this Indian team. As commentators, we also talk about that there should be clarity but this Indian team doesn’t want to go that road. You have to accept that’s not how (Virat) Kohli operates,” Kaif said on Sports Tak YouTube channel. © Instagram Mohammad Kaif “Kohli believes that whoever is in form, you include him in the playing XI. That’s the reason why Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan played for India while Shikhar was dropped and Rohit Sharma was also given a break,” he added. After losing the WTC final, Kohli hinted at a huge overhaul in the Test squad just like the limited-overs side and argued they would bring in players with the right mindset, who aren’t afraid of expressing themselves in the middle. © Reuters Kohli’s comments became a huge talking point and people started speculating who might lose his place in the side. Kaif believes that this has been the norm on the side for quite some time now and not even senior players like Rohit Sharma is certain of his place in the side. “No one can be certain of his place in this team and even Rohit is aware of that. It’s not a new thing, it has been going on for a long time and even the players have moved on knowing that they’ll have to cash in on whatever opportunities they get. © Twitter BCCI “At the end of the day, one should judge Kohli on the basis of whether or not he can win India trophies but so far he hasn’t been successful in the ICC events,” Kaif stated. Frankly speaking, in Kaif’s era there was no platform like IPL and Sourav Ganguly had a limited pool of players to choose from whereas Kohli has no dearth of options and there is no harm in picking players who have proved their calibre by scoring tons of runs in the domestic T20 league.

  17. You shared some wonderful times with this person, being there through thick and thin, helping them navigate through some of the roughest parts of their lives as well. But now you’ve reached an impasse. There’s barely any energy left in you to invest in this friendship. And you know you’ve tried your level best to be the friend that they need you to be, but have they for once reciprocated any of your efforts? Nobody likes it when a friendship turns toxic. I'd much rather move ahead in hopes that things would get better someday. But reality is that unless we are honest and upfront about our feelings, this toxic relationship will only get worse. Here are five warning signs that your friendship has turned toxic and that it’s time to have an honest conversation: 1. Over-possessive Who doesn’t like feeling wanted or needed? I enjoy the odd occasion when people are possessive over me. I’ll be honest, It even gives me an ego boost at times. However, this possessiveness turns toxic when they start demanding all of your time and attention, flip out when you’re hanging out with other friends and start making you feel like shit for having a life of your own. Just because you’re best friends doesn’t mean your lives have to be completely co-dependent. © iStock 2. Uncalled Rudeness Every relationship has its own boundaries. My closest friends and I are comfortable trashing each other verbally. But this does not mean that they get a free pass for being a dick all the time, especially in front of others. Bullying someone under the guise of close friendship is a definite red flag. © iStock 3. Emotional Vampires Your phone rings and you pick it up, it’s your friend calling you. They tell you about everything that bothered them that day, and once they’re feeling better they drop off. Friendships are meant to support and nurture each other, but if it’s beginning to feel increasingly one-sided, then you’ve got an emotional vampire at your hand. If you try asking for help, they’re gonna ghost you faster than a vampire hiding from sunlight. You can try and try to always be there for them, but they’ll never be there for you. Sooner or later, all the emotional labour you’ve done will be long forgotten. © iStock 4. Forever Drama You’ve got to be honest with yourself if spending time with them has begun to feel like a burden. Ask yourself why? Does it have anything to do with the constant barrage of drama you’re subjected to? If just being friends with them feels like a stressful game of minesweeper, then either plan a conversation for clarity or plan your escape route. © iStock 5. Passive-Aggressive Guilting You’re a person with your own personal tastes and preferences. And you’re allowed to have that. But if your friend likes to make you feel bad or tries guilting you for them, try to engage in a conversation. But if the passive aggressive snarky remarks don’t stop, then it’s time to ask yourself what you’re actually gaining from this friendship. © iStock Friendships aren’t meant to feel like an additional burden to your lives. Yes, there may be situations where you might go through rough patches with your friends, but you shouldn’t be left constantly mentally exhausted trying to fix that equation. View the full article
  18. A Hyderabad based software engineer who ran the illegal app ‘Thop TV’ has been arrested by the Maharashtra Cyber Cell. Satish Venkateshwarlu was arrested for distributing pirated content ripped off from OTT platforms and satellite channels. He has been remanded to seven days of police custody by a Mumbai court. Sanjay Shintre, SP, Maharashtra Cyber told media, “Maharashtra Cyber cell has done a technical investigation into the FIR and accordingly we have arrested one culprit from Hyderabad. The culprit had used Thop TV as a platform and as an app. He primarily provided free content on Telegram.” © APKPure Thop TV became popular amongst internet users as it charged a very nominal fee of Rs 35 to let users stream premium content on the app. The Thop TV app would also host live streams of Indian TV channels from Star, Jio, Airtel and other DTH providers. The app would also provide content from streaming apps such as Netflix, HotStar, Prime Video and other regional OTT platforms. Thop TV’s service has been taken offline since the arrest and the app has stopped working for users who already had it installed as well. © nahel-abdul-hadi-unsplash The 28-year-old digital pirate had been operating the app from his home for the past two years. It had lakhs of subscribers including paid customers. Satish was arrested after a complaint was filed by Viacom 18 Media Private Limited, along with another broadcaster. The broadcasters approached the Maharashtra Cyber Cell and informed them that Thop TV was transmitting content without authorisation. The platform was also abused by users who wanted to watch live sports, movies and TV shows. The police have now booked Satish for cheating and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code. Many users of the app reacted to the news with memes on Twitter: No more #ThopTV now! pic.twitter.com/Y5GS2tHSqO — Shubham Dutt (@shubhamdutt13) July 14, 2021#thoptv we will miss you. pic.twitter.com/mFesCsJv2r — DipConfused (@dipconfused) July 14, 2021#thoptv owner arrested by maharashtra police users : pic.twitter.com/gv6v53877F — Harry Potter (@iampotterr) July 14, 2021THOP TV: CEO got arrested #thoptv pic.twitter.com/ALvBBMihN7 — (@vishal_stark9) July 14, 2021Main Image for representation purposes only.

  19. If you're a fan of zombie-filled action, you'll definitely be aware of the Resident Evil franchise. © Capcom © Capcom Well, in all fairness, it's not really that easy to keep track of the series as the original Japanese horror video game series created by Capcom, has been converted into a live-action movie franchise as well as television series. But the more, the merrier, right? It seems like Netflix sure knows our old, never-dying habit of always wanting more, and well, the streaming platform has delivered. © Capcom It just released the first season of the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CGI anime series, and here are five reasons why you should definitely give it a binge-watch. 1. A Zombie Civil War © Netflix If you've played the games, the first season of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is set somewhere between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The series sees the return of protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who once again, join forces to investigate the aftermath of a civil war in Penamstan, a fictional middle eastern country, which is very similar to the Zombie-plagued Racoon City of the previous installments, is a testing ground for the zombie creating T-virus. © Netflix What's next? Well, we see special force soldiers becoming even deadlier after turning into blood-sucking, brain-eating scary zombies. 2. Zombies In The US White House © Netflix The series starts with the US White House, the one institution which is guarded by the goddamn Secret Service, infiltrated with Zombies. While the American President is kept under tight security and escorted away, we see how the Zombie-fighting heroes of the Resident Evil franchise, spread out inside the dark and eerie halls of the soul-less White House to kill the undead and get out alive. 3. The Graphics Are Freaking Insane © Netflix Say what you will after watching the series but you can't deny one thing about it. It has absolutely mind-blowing CGI animation that makes the characters and the scenes, and even the buildings like the US White House, look absolutely life-like. I'm pretty sure that if you had a closer look, you could even start counting the strands of hair a character has. (I know, weird, right? But you still can.) This might not be the best Resident Evil piece of action out there for the die-hard fans, however, it sure promises to be a 100 percent treat to the eyes. 4. Mysterious Characters © Netflix Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness brings back some old characters along with some new ones. One thing remains in common with almost all of them. They've had some history and are all battling demons from their past. Be it the civil war soldiers or Leon and Claire themselves, the events of the zombie apocalypse at Racoon City as well as the one at Penamstan, give each character a mysterious vibe, which certainly adds more meaning to the plot. 5. It's A Mini-Series With Just Four Episodes © Netflix That's right! While I'm not entirely happy with the series being so short, there are just four episodes in the first season and each episode is not more than 30-minutes long. This makes it very easy to watch, especially if one just wants to browse what the Zombie-anime genre is all about. Having said that, I'd still have wanted the series to dive more into the plot to make it more interesting, and maybe adding more episodes to the first season could have helped in making that possible. However, for now, you can be happy that it's just a sign of things to come, and I cannot wait for the next season to arrive to make the plot thicker, and for the Resident Evil series to become even more captivating!

  20. On Tuesday, media reports suggested that the former Indian cricket team captain and the current president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly has given a final nod to a biopic being made on his life. “Yes, I have agreed to the biopic. It will be in Hindi but it is not possible to say the name of the director now. It will take a few more days for arranging everything," Ganguly told News18 before getting into the details and how far has the process already been. View this post on Instagram According to the report, it is believed that the movie will revolve around all the major events of Ganguly’s life and the phenomenal international cricketing career that he’s had, and everything that led up to the moment he assumed the position of BCCI president. At the moment, the script is being written and there is no news of the film’s potential release date. Who Will Play Sourav Ganguly’s Role In The Biopic?Ganguly mentioned the name of actor Ranbir Kapoor as the front-runner for the part. However, reports suggest that there are two other actors who are in contention to play the role of the ‘Prince of Kolkata’. This choice has left the fans of the Indian cricket team divided as suggestions for other big names of Bollywood began to flood in as recommendations: Ranbir Kapoor is doing aggressive roles in Animal & Shamshera, and he is a brilliant actor. He can surely portray Sourav Ganguly really well imo. — 𝙨𝙤𝙝𝙤𝙢 ४ 🇦🇷 (@AwaaraHoon) July 13, 2021Need hrithik roshan for that pic.twitter.com/9Lem1NPBIF — Soham (@Soham718) July 13, 2021R madhavan is best in terms of looks — Arijit (Mask Up ) (@SRKian_Arijit) July 13, 2021He is completely opposite to Saurav Ganguly's character 🤣🤣 — vi$h_12 🇮🇳 (@Vishaltweets12) July 13, 2021Ranbir?

As far as the Indian cricketers are concerned, there have been a couple of players who have had biopics made on them. M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story in which former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s role was played by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput turned out to be a massive success, while the biopic Azhar, which was based on Mohammad Azharuddin with Emraan Hashmi playing the role of the cricketer also achieved moderate success. Another film, 83 is also in the works, which revolves around Team India’s 1983 World Cup victory with Ranveer Singh playing the role of skipper Kapil Dev. Rumours of Ganguly’s biopic have been in the air for a while now, but Dada had been shooting those down one after another until today. View the full article
