  1. From calling a rescue operator a “pedo guy” on Twitter, to smoking weed during one of the most-watched podcasts, and naming his child a seemingly random combination of characters, Elon Musk surely knows how to stay in the news. However, if there is one celebrity billionaire who is actually, at the face of it, seemingly working for the betterment of human lives, it is Elon Musk. © Reuters We have come to recognise him as that eccentric billionaire who has successfully privatised space travel and is making us rethink cars and personal automobiles, thanks to Tesla. Some of us, who have followed the man know him since his days at X.com or what came to be known as PayPal. What most of us don't know, is how he came to be the billionaire that he is. © Reuters Well, technically, we know how he earned his billions; what most of us don't know, is how exactly he earned his first billion dollars, the milestone that is the hardest to crack into. The thing is, once you have your first billion, it becomes relatively easy to expand your fortune - most billionaires have said so in a number of interviews. What one really needs to be careful about, is how they invest their money, and that they do not squander it away on pointless things. So how did Elon Musk manage to do it? Making the first billion for him was indeed difficult, as compared to the rest of his $54 Billion. © Reuters 1. Starting Out With Odd Jobs © Reddit/r/muskclan Musk got his first paycheck for $500 when at the age of 10, he developed a computer game. When as a teen, he moved to Canada from South Africa, is where he really started working. Before enrolling in college education, he worked as a lumberjack and would cut trees for a lumber company. During this time, he would also work a number of odd and hazardous jobs that would be paying high, like cleaning out the rooms where the logs were disinfected and cleaned, just because no one was willing to do it. Imagine a guy with degrees in Economics and Physics doing such odd jobs, today. 2. Establishing His First Company © Reddit/r/muskclan Borrowing some money from his dad, Elon and his brother Kimbal, during the Dot Com boom, started a company called Zip2, a company that provided real-time maps to media outlets. This was one of the first rudimentary GPS systems that was easily accessible for the common public. This company was bought by Compaq for about $310 Million, of which, musk got about $22 Million. The brothers went on to open up X.com the world's first digital payment and online bank that allowed international transactions. X.com bought a software security company called Confinity, the real founders of PayPal. Soon, the venture was renamed as PayPal. 3. Selling PayPal © Reddit/r/muskclan Contrary to popular belief, Elon Musk did not become a billionaire when e-Bay bought PayPal. All Musk earned from that venture was $180 Million. E-Bay made that acquisition for $1.5 Billion, but because there were a lot of investors, and partners in X.com, Elon got just over 10-12 per cent of the deal. 4. Establishing SpaceX © Reuters With the proceeds he got from the sale of PayPal, Musk started his 3rd company, SpaceX or Space Exploration Technologies. Within 6 years, it was regularly getting contracts from NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station. During this time, NASA also outsourced the development of some major projects to SpaceX. This is the business venture that vastly contributed to Musk's personal wealth. 5. Establishing Tesla Incorporated © Reuters Musk was always interested in the physics of energy, and had even gotten into Stanford University's doctoral program before he started his first company. After establishing SpaceX, Musk founded Tesla. Although we know Tesla today as one of the most valuable automobile companies in the world, automotive is just one of the many aspects of the company. There was a time when a majority of the company's cash flow came from providing plans and components for solar power plants and high volume electricity storages that were sustainable in nature. It was Tesla's energy division, which was earlier called SolarCity before it was acquired by him, that really earned Musk his first Billion. © Reuters Tesla won a number of government contracts, especially outside the USA regarding his energy storage solutions. We're talking about massive storage systems, ones that could power entire cities for days without end. From here on out, Musk went completely bonkers - he founded The Boring Company, which shares, invested more into his Hyperloop project, and invested in his AI company. View the full article
  2. One of the key members of the 2007 World T20 winning Indian team, Robin Uthappa has recently opened up on his battle with clinical depression. Yes, you read that right. âI donât think it matters where youâre from or what you are or honestly, how much money youâre earning, because when I was going through that, I was the second-highest paid player in IPL,â Robin Uthappa said in his interview with Quint while opening up about his battle against clinical depression from 2009 to 2011. Well, this was just years after winning the T20 World Cup with India and during a span when he was one of the most in-demand players in the IPL. That certainly sheds light on how depression can affect anyone irrespective of how successful one is or how much money is someone making or anything. It is an illness that can affect anyone. Period. The big-hitting top-order batsman, who represented India in 46 ODIs and 13 T20 Internationals, confirmed the above statement. He said, âYou think that depression comes because of lack of money or not being able to achieve your goals but no, anything can trigger it and it can happen to absolutely anybody.â Watch the full video here: Robin made his international debut in 2006 and there was no turning back since then as he gained immense popularity in Indian cricket over the next few years. However, the cricketer revealed that 2009 was the year when he started feeling something amiss. He said, âIn 2008, I played (IPL) for Mumbai Indians and I was just transferred to the RCB. I was very conflicted because the trade happened very close to the tournament. I think 3-4 weeks before. Suddenly, youâre preparing the whole year to play for one team and youâre thrown into a trade situation when you have to go to another team. Even though I was coming home (Bengaluru), I was very conflicted. And I think that was the hay that broke the camelâs back, so to speak, for me.â âI realised something was not right. I was constantly depressed, I was not okay. I would catch myself sitting on the window sill of my room on the 21st floor, with my legs dangling out and just thinking â what should I do with my life? Those are the kind of things you experience. You feel completely hopeless,â he added. Earlier, during the Royal Rajasthan Foundationâs live session "Mind, Body and Soul", the cricketer said, âI remember around 2009 to 2011, it was constant and I would deal with that on a daily basis. There were times where I wasnât even thinking about cricket, it was probably the farthest thing in my mind.â He added, âI was thinking about how I would survive this day and move on to the next, whatâs happening to my life and in which direction am I heading. Cricket kept my mind off of these thoughts but it became really difficult on non-match days and during the off-season. On days, I would just be sitting there and would think to myself on the count of three, Iâm going to run and jump off of the balcony but something kind of just held me back.â I cannot reiterate this enough. WE NEED TO SPEAK ABOUT WHAT WE FEEL WITHIN. we are stronger than we understand and IT IS COMPLETELY OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY. #depression #MentalHealthMatters â Robin Aiyuda Uthappa (@robbieuthappa) June 14, 2020 I thought I had two options in life, said Robin, to end it all or get out from where I am, uproot myself, go to some corner of the world and restart. âI reached out to my counsellor again and after I spoke to my counsellor again, I slowly started getting myself out of my way and it was with her that I realised I was going through clinical depression for the last 1-2 years. Once I went back to the counsellor, I made sure I stayed the course,â added Robin, who reached out to the counsellor prior to this but quit midway. âYou feel like the best thing to do under these circumstances is to finish it all. End it all. And thatâs where I think weâre very wrong. It has been a long journey, a tough journey, but one that required help. Itâs okay to not be okay, itâs okay to not feel okay,â Uthappa had said during this interview. We are reiterating here that depression is an illness and it is extremely important to seek help when you feel something is amiss as mental well-being is as important as physical well-being. If this can happen to celebrities, who we think are living the dream lives, it can happen to anyone. Uthappa subsequently had a great Ranji run in 2014-15 season, finishing as the national eventâs top run-getter. He hasnât retired yet but neither has he played for India since 2015. The 34-year-old top-order batsman was picked by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 3 crore for this yearâs IPL, which is currently suspended owing to the COVID-19 global health crisis. IMPORTANT: If you or anyone you know, is/are facing difficulties processing your thoughts, or feel that talking to someone can make you feel better, please do not hesitate even for a moment and reach out here or call +91-9820466726. A phone call can perhaps change the course of your/someone else's life, and it certainly deserves a chance. (With inputs from PTI and Quint) View the full article
  3. It's almost been three weeks since we got the news of Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic death and it's still hard to believe a brilliant actor and person like him is gone forever. © Twitter For weeks, people have been paying him tributes and celebrating his work. Now, the latest person to pay his respects to the late actor is PewDiePie. Recently, in a video, he talked about the #Unsubscribe hashtag along with Sushant Singh Rajput. Not wanting to get into the entire thing with T-Series, he just remembered seeing a video of Sushant addressing students at a university. He said, "I have seen people talk about it and there was something about Sushant Singh Rajput. It was a university talk about this guy. He seemed like such a good dude, like a genuinely good dude. So people were pointing to nepotism in the industry and then it somehow got in a clash with T-Series and that is why Unsub T-Series got trending. Itâs such a shame he decided to end his life. I donât know everything about him but from what I saw he seemed a really good dude and someone the industry needs. So itâs a huge loss. Rest in peace." Someone's first impression of Sushant is so pure just because of how genuinely great he actually was. PewDiePie is also seeking advice on whether he should make a video on him or not. love you pewdiepie Sushant Singh Rajput was an amazing Bollywood actor. pic.twitter.com/m38vIzfFwC â Dan (@Danmurai) July 1, 2020 A great gesture!

  5. Sushant Singh Rajput is no more and itâs still not easy to wrap our heads around this tragedy. His journey from a middle class to becoming a star inspired many actors who are trying to make their space. When he died by suicide, his family and fans were left devastated.

He was curious about just everything. He dreamed without restraints and chased those dreams with the heart of a lion. He smiled generously. He was the pride and inspiration of the family. His telescope was his most prized possession, through which he fondly gazed at the stars...We can't bring ourselves to accept that we wouldn't get to hear his easy laughs anymore. That we wouldn't see his sparkling eyes again. That we wouldn't hear his endless rants about science again. His loss has created a permanent, glaring void in the family that will never be filled.â © Sushant Singh Rajputâs Family His Patna house will be turned into a memorial and his family will put all his personal belongings, which include his books, telescope, flight-simulator, for his fans and followers. The family also intends to manage his Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages to keep his memories alive. Itâs sad to say that we have lost a gem. While the police are investigating the case, people on social media are asking for a CBI inquiry for the actor. Well, the mystery around his death will solve with time and till then, letâs pray for the departed soul RIP, Sushant Singh Rajput! View the full article
  6. In a cricket-obsessed country like India, cricketers enjoy unmatched limelight and fanfare that are second to none. Owing to their cricketing success, these superstars also serve as role models for youth and ambassadors for leading brands who rope them in to connect with fans for promoting their products. While everyone wants to be famous cricketers like them, only a handful eventually manage to realise their potential and play for the country. But then, there are those who, despite lacking the cricketing skills, still manage to achieve their own sense of fame owing to their uncanny similarities with the cricketers. Over the years, cricketers have seen their numerous doppelgangers who have not only captured the imagination of fans, but have also cashed in on their fame on the back of their resemblance to the players. For the last three decades, Balvir Chand has built his life around his resemblance to the great Sachin Tendulkar. View the full article
  7. Anil Kapoor reveals his thoughts on his 37th anniversary in Bollywood and how it has shaped him over the years
  8. Earlier this April, with the major Grand Slams getting rescheduled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Mutua Madrid Open, an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 clay-court event, surprised everyone by turning the event into a virtual tennis tournament. The E-tournament saw the likes of Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Angelique Kerber amongst others swapping their racquets for a PlayStation 4 (PS4) controller. It was not only a much-needed source of entertainment for fans, but also a good platform for tennis stars to rekindle their love affair with tennis amid lockdown protocols. While the virtual tennis tournament couldn't possibly replicate the emotions or environment of a match on an actual court, it was undeniably a practical option given the situation at hand. Last month, Novak Djokovic, perhaps motivated by the success of the virtual tennis tournament, decided to take it a notch up. With the world combating the fast-spreading virus, Djokovic was left stranded in Spain for two months before he finally arrived in Serbia. The star player marked his return to Serbia with the announcement of his very own exhibition tournament Adria Tour. Iâm proud to officially share the news that the #AdriaTour will be held across the Balkans 13 June - 5 July kicking off with a tournament in Belgrade. Very grateful and excited we could make this happen to play and support humanitarian projects across th⦠https://t.co/8eQsx7CkMu pic.twitter.com/QDVXa4FbqV â Novak Djokovic (@DjokerNole) May 22, 2020 The tournament was divided into four parts, beginning with the clashes in Serbian capital Belgrade on 13-14 June before moving to Croatian city of Zadar on 20-21 June. The final two parts of the tournament was to take place in Montenegro (27-28 June) and then Bosnia and Herzegovina's city of Banja Luka (3-4 July). #AdriaTour @AdriaTennisTour @novakfoundation @jelenadjokovic @ThiemDomi @filipkrajinovic @AlexZverev @GrigorDimitrov @Dutzee @troicki_viktor @jelena_jankovic @danilovic_olga pic.twitter.com/yPQ1Rfxf2o â Novak Djokovic (@DjokerNole) June 15, 2020 The tournament was set up by world no. 1 Djokovic to help players get back to match fitness after several weeks without competition due to COVID-19 outbreak. With prominent names like Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov amongst others in attendance, the first part of the tournament attracted 4,000 fans in Serbia and several thousand in Zadar. Dimitrov and co standing in the middle of a big crowd in Zadar (a really nice place in normal times) two days ago. You can actually hear him call it "crazy" and Coric explaining that they did actually go into lockdown. pic.twitter.com/HiHj4BF8po â Tumaini Carayol (@tumcarayol) June 21, 2020 But, what was tipped to be a helpful tournament has now proved to be a disaster as Dimitrov and Borna Coric have tested positive for COVID-19. Both Dimitrov and Coric have tested positive for the deadly disease after playing in Djokovic's exhibition event. With both Serbia and Croatia easing lockdown measures before the events, players were not obliged to observe social distancing rules in either country and were seen embracing at the net at the end of their matches.

He was also seen putting his arm around Coric before their match at the Adria Tour. While the fans showed their support for both Dimitrov and Coric, they heavily criticised Djokovic for organising the tournament amid COVID-19 outbreak. Don't need the 20-20 hindsight of Grigor Dimitrov's positive COVID-19 test, to say that Novak Djokovic had -- at very best -- a reckless attitude to the pandemic at his tournament in Belgrade last week. pic.twitter.com/a6JklCfXm1 â Ali Walker (@AliWalker24) June 21, 2020Concur fully..Nole is a born Joker & most irresponsible, at best.. â Capt.

  9. If films could be a mirror to an individualâs take on life and become the light that guides them on their journey, film director Shoojit Sircarâs oeuvre would make for a comprehensive point of departure. More than a decade old in the industry, Shoojit Sircarâs body of work is diverse and exuberant, even as recurring tropes bind them in harmony. Life As He Sees It © BCCL Shoojit Sircarâs films may be works of âfictionâ but on closer inspection one sees them for what they are. His films are as alive as the characters you see in every frame, his locations speak volumes and even the costumes, props and get-ups are laced with metaphors that you cannot escape but draw meaning and connection from. That is how this man functions. For Shoojit Sircar, filmmaking doesnât have to be detached from life to be called a work of fiction. He incorporates active reality into his films. The idiosyncrasies and follies of human life peek at you throughout the storytelling, closely followed by hope, humour or a lesson. The Life As It Had Been © Twitter ShoojitSircar Yet, for a man so inspired by the life he lives, his own isnât out there for people to learn and draw inspiration from. So, here I am, prodding the soft-spoken, jovial man to spill the beans about his life and transition to the world of cinema in his own words. Shoojit told me that he grew up in the forests of North Bengal, where âmy childhood friends were elephants and I grew up amongst them.â His earliest memories are from the time he lived with his family in an Air Force colony in a small town bordering Bhutan, named Hasimara. Being a part of an IAF family meant frequent transfers and migrations and that became a trend for him pretty early on in life. âFrom Hasimara we shifted to Barrackpore where I studied in Kendriya Vidyalaya till class sixth. I remember the school was located bang in the middle of an airstrip at the time, and whenever old airplanes flew by and our classes would stop. We could go from one building to another only after the planes passed.â © Twitter ShoojitSircar But what Shoojit perhaps counts as his fondest memory of the place is that it introduced him to his first love. âThatâs the place where I grew up playing football and my whole upbringing was basically around it.â Living on the outskirts of Bengal for the most part, Shoojit confirms that during his growing-up years he didnât have the privilege of closely exploring mainland Bengal or the Bangali community, since by the time some level of understanding and independence came, his family shifted base to Delhi. A Life Made In Delhi, By Football, For Cinema © Twitter ShoojitSircar Recalling his first encounter with the Capital city, Shoojit said, âIt was an absolutely new place for me, it was a complete cultural shock. The language, the people...I hadnât seen so many turbaned people in my life before that point.â But slowly he adapted to this new city he came to call home and fell in love with it. âI completed my schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Andrews Ganj and then went to Shaheed Bhagat Singh college to complete my graduation in B.Com.â Though he is quick to add that âeven at that point my life was still all about football and nothing else.â School and college days flew by running around grass-covered fields, covered in dust and sweat as he spent hours chasing after a ball that would reach its goal. Upon graduating, Shoojit found himself behind a desk, playing with numbers that didnât please him in the least as opposed to the smell of fresh grass under his feet. But who knew, this dissatisfaction will guide him to a universe that would completely overturn his world. © Facebook Shoojit Sircar âAfter college, I worked for a year in Hotel Meridian as an Accounts Assistant, and it was around this time that I got introduced to the world of theatre. My basic upbringing or the mirror to the world of arts was through theatre.â It was this close encounter with theatre that changed Shoojit in many ways. âMy basic disciple in life and what I create, be it advertisements, movies or anything else inspired by theatre. I keep telling people that you should go and do theatre regardless of what profession you follow. And slowly from theatre, I transitioned into cinema.â Art, Craft & Cinema Through The Eyes Of Shoojit Sircar © Twitter ShoojitSircar Shoojit shares that his fascination with cinema started with attending film festivals at the Siri Fort Auditorium, which also exposed him to world cinema, something that was otherwise quite difficult to access in those days since most movie theatres didnât screen them. âHowever, the turning point came when these film festivals introduced me to the world of Satyajit Ray. That changed my life, and then I just got hooked.â Shoojit admits that Satyajit Rayâs films completely changed his perspective about life and taught him a ton about the craft. From there he stepped into the world of Ad films, and after some initial struggles eventually found his way to cinema before finally deciding to shift to Bombay in 2000. âEventually I made my first film Yahaan in 2005.â © Twitter ShoojitSircar When I ask him if he ever thought life would turn out this way, pat comes his reply. âI never imagined life would take such a drastic turn for me, because before theatre happened I couldnât even finish a single novel. The most reading I did was limited to the textbooks in school and college. My life otherwise only revolved around football.â Only The Half Of ItToday, this man is called a filmmaking genius who breathes life into raw human emotions and feelings and presents them on-screen styled as the unique, memorable characters we meet in his films. Still, his Instagram bio gives you the absolute truth - âFirst a footballer, then a filmmakerâ it reads. How this passionate football player chanced upon the art of filmmaking and gave the world of cinema some of its greatest gems, seems to be too much of a good coincidence. © Rising Sun Films He confesses, âI believe my observations of life have helped me in filmmaking. I never went to a film institute, I have learnt everything about the craft on my own. Because I got addicted to cinema, I started reading a lot, I began writing and watching all the good work that existed. Eventually, I started with documentaries, not with fiction.â The rest, as they say, is history and we have all been witness to the rise of this tremendous talent who keeps raising his own bar with every creation he sends our way.

  10. Sushant Singh Rajput is gone leaving a void in the hearts of his family, friends, the ones he knew, and his fans. It's devastating and as it's said that when someone sets his or her foot on their last journey, they never come back. I had known Sushant for four years and let me tell you, he was one humble and down to earth human being who had no malice in his heart. I met him during the interviews for MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. I entered the vanity van and the conversation continued for a good 1 hour. When I was leaving, he asked me 'Won't you take a selfie as that's the culture now?' and I responded saying, 'I will take it when I will earn it and I just came to interview you and my job is done and I loved interacting with you'. We both laughed and connected because he remembered me, all credits to our interaction. We kept meeting for interviews, events, and even for a few parties hosted by some common friends. Sushant and I did talk over phone calls and messages at times but as time passed by, the interactions started to get lesser but we remained in touch and yes, he was a friend. Now, he is gone and all I see is the insensitive portrayal of his tragic demise. © MensXP It's hard to let go of people you know and have admired. I understand that there's this rage and we all need to know why he took such a tragic step but why can't we do it sensibly? A few media portals and news channels have gone way too far in telling the details of that morning when he left us. There are different conspiracy theories that are floating around but he doesn't deserve such a farewell. © MensXP His sister, Shweta Singh Kriti, also requested everyone to choose love over hatred. She wrote on her Facebook post (which she deleted a while back), "Mera baby, mera Babu mera Bachcha is not physically present with us anymore and it is ok... I know u were in a lot of pain and I know u were a fighter and u were bravely fighting it. Sorry mera Sona... sorry for all the pain u had to go through...if I could I would hav taken all ur pain and given all my happiness to u.Your twinkling eyes taught the world how to dream, ur innocent smile revealed the true purity of ur heart. You will always be loved mera Baby and so so much more... Wherever ur mera baby stay happy....stay fulfilled and know that everyone loved, loves u and will always love you unconditionally. All my dear ones... I know it is testing time... but whenever there is a choice.... choose love above hatred, choose kindness and compassion above anger and resentment choose selflessness above selfishness and forgive.... forgive yourself, forgive others and forgive everyone. Everybody is fighting their own battles.... be compassionate to yourself and be compassionate to others and everyone. Let not ur heart close everrrrrr, at any cost!!!! #Sushantsinghrajput." © Shweta Singh Kriti Facebook © Shweta Singh Kriti Facebook I wanted to give him a well-deserved farewell by talking about the acts of kindness he did over the years. 1. Donated Rs 1.25 Crore For Nagaland FloodsWhen many celebs didn't pay attention to the damage that happened in Nagaland in 2018, he stepped forward and donated a sum of Rs 1.25 Crore for the relief fund. CM Neiphiu Rio, in 2018, also tweeted about it and wrote, " I thank Sushant Singh Rajput @itsSSR for standing with #Nagaland. He personally handed over a cheque of Rs.1.25 crore towards CM Relief Fund. I am grateful to him and everyone who has come in support of our state #NagalandFloods #DonateForNagaland."

Sent Two Kids For NASA TrainingAs we all know that Sushant was interested in the theories of how space functions. He even went to NASA and also attended a workshop there. He also sent two kids to the space centre as they wanted to fulfill their dreams of understanding astronomy. Sushant, in an interview with IANS, told, "When I was a kid I really wanted to be an astronaut but I did not know where to go. I always wanted to go NASA but was declined again and again, so I got myself a really powerful telescope, which can zoom in on any crater on a bright moon night. It was two years back that I had a chance to go to NASA and I did a small workshop there. One year later I sent two kids to NASA, they were very bright kids and one of them won a gold medal there and he now trains to become an astronaut. I am now planning to send at least 100 kids this time to NASA."

  11. This yearâs much-awaited film Dil Bechara will become one of the most-loved films for more than one reason - the most important one being, this would be late actor Sushant Singh Rajputâs last film. Unfortunately, after this one, we wonât get to see the 34-year-old actor on big-screens anymore. Helmed by Mukesh Chhabra, Dil Bechara is a perfect mix of a talented, experienced ensemble cast and crew together with a well-written, multi-layered story and AR Rahman's music track, that would instantly hit the right chord with the viewers. âJab baat Dil ki ho, then let everyone know.â#KizzieAurManny is now #DilBechara@foxstarhindi @sanjanasanghi96 @CastingChhabra pic.twitter.com/T3aqfsbYZ0 â Sushant Singh Rajput (@itsSSR) February 8, 2019 The filmâs premise revolves around a love story between two teenagers who suffer from cancer. Here we have listed out six reasons why you should watch Sushantâs yet-to-be released Dil Bechara: 1. Sushant Singh Rajputâs Last FilmAs we mentioned earlier, Dil Bechara will be marked as Sushantâs last film as his sudden and tragic passing has left people across the country and the Bollywood industry completely in shock. Sushant was only 34 years old when he took this drastic step of ending his life. Reports suggest that he was suffering from depression over the years. This film would be nothing but an ode to the talented actor that we have lost too soon. âIâ am just âyouâ away from Glory. #selfmusing ï¸ pic.twitter.com/Q5vZb4VCGq â Sushant Singh Rajput (@itsSSR) August 19, 2018 2. Storyline Will Take You Through Roller-Coaster Of EmotionsThereâs no doubt that itâs an epic romance story. But let me warn you - you're going to cry. Just accept that now. Not only because of the hard-hitting narrative, but seeing Sushant playing a role that only screams - hope & positivity, will make us miss him more as we watch him. Youâll not only be engrossed in the film till the end, it will also make you think about how life is precious. Also, there's no time like the summer to indulge in a sweeping love story, right? 3. Based On Critically & Commercially Successful NovelDil Bechara is a coming-of-age romantic drama which is based on renowned American author John Green's 2012 novel The Fault in Our Stars. The novel is his sixth solo and quite interestingly, the novelâs title is inspired by Act 1, Scene 2 of Shakespeare's most popular play Julius Caesar, in which the nobleman Cassius says to Brutus: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings." The novel was a massive hit and in 2014, it was made into an American romantic drama film directed by Josh Boone in the same name. That film was a commercial success. 4. Ensemble CastHelmed by Mukesh Chhabra, Dil Bechara marks his directorial debut and apart from Sushant Singh Rajput, the film also features debutante Sanjana Sanghi and Saif Ali Khan in pivotal roles. Although, Saif makes a guest appearance in the film. 5. AR Rahman MusicARRâs name itself is enough to make one excited about the upcoming songs. Academy Award-winning music composer AR Rahman has been roped in to score music for this most-awaited film. In one of his media interviews earlier, he said, "When I heard the narration of their Indian adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars and especially how music is so beautifully woven into the narrative, I got quite excited." Produced by Fox Star Studios, the filmâs release got delayed several times earlier due to post-production delays and recently, due to the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. It was supposed to be released on May 8 but now, as per the reports, the film will be released directly on OTT platforms soon. The release date hasnât been announced yet. Besides, according to news reports, the filmâs director was also suspended from his services after getting allegedly accused of sexual harassment in October 2018. However, eventually he returned after receiving a clean chit from ICC on the allegations. This perhaps also added to the filmâs delay. Dil Becharaâs lead actor opposite Sushant, Sanjana recently took to her social media account to share an emotional message about her co-actor.

Meanwhile, fans of Sushant are now demanding the film to be released in theatres as a tribute to the actor, however, if the film will have a digital release or not, is yet to be seen. Wont this be injustice to @itsSSR if movie is released on OTT instead of multiplex.

Maybe I could have, you know, helped in some way or not⦠I donât know. But after working with him, I quite liked him because he was nice.â The film was largely shot in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand and few portions were also filmed across Paris, France. View the full article
  12. Everyone is still in shock, people are still not able to believe that a brilliant actor like Sushant Singh Rajput is gone. People are mourning him, condolences are being shared, fans are remembering all the memorable movies he has been a part of. In his fond memory, we've listed down some roles that he's played that will forever be his legacy and something for people to remember him by. 1. Kai Po Che! © UTV Motion Pictures He was one of the rare actors to seamlessly transition into a Bollywood actor after starting his career on TV and that's what makes his first movie that much more special. The movie was met with loads and loads of positive reviews and proved the fact that Sushant Singh Rajput had the makings of a Bollywood star already. The movie is currently streaming on Netflix. 2. PK © Vinod Chopra Films While he may not have had a huge role in this movie, it was a crucial one nonetheless. We'll always remember him as Sarfaraz and how âusne dhoka nahi diya.â In a movie that already had big stars like Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma, he made sure to give a performance that we won't forget anytime soon. You can watch the movie on Netflix or Sony Liv. 3. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! © Yash Raj Films The action-thriller received so much critical acclaim and Sushant shined through as the titular character. He was praised for bringing an iconic Bengali character to life with so much elegance and the entire movie was appreciated for being one of the best crime mysteries in Bollywood. The movie is available on Sony Liv. 4. M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story © Fox Star Studios Of course, now comes his breakthrough role as none other than M.S. Dhoni. Portraying a real-life person is so much harder than a fictional one but he told the untold story of the former Indian Cricket team captain flawlessly. The biopic has been highly praised and of course, Sushant's acting as well. This seemed like a turning point for him as it is his biggest hit. The movie is streaming of Disney+ Hotstar. 5. Chhichhore © Fox Star Studios Last but not the least, we have the movie Chhichhore that everyone is remembering today. The movie deals with the topics of suicide and depression and shows people, especially students, how to live life to the fullest. His character is dealing with his son's attempt at suicide and how he handles that is something that is making everyone emotional today. The movie is available on Disney+ Hotstar. Rest in peace, Sushant. You will be missed! View the full article
  13. For every single person, TikTok has been a blessing during the lockdown. Everyone, from celebrities to regular people bored at home, has tried their hand at the TikTok dances and just creating hilarious content when they have nothing else to do. One famous person who has been extremely consistent on the app has been David Warner who has constantly made headlines with his TikToks. From duets with other celebs to just dancing with his adorable kids, it's safe to assume that the Australian cricketer is having the best time under lockdown. One of his latest videos has his two cute lil daughters dressed up in a ghaghras and three of them dancing to the song Bala from Housefull 4.

  14. If thereâs one actor who is both on-screen and off-screen hero, it is undoubtedly actor Sonu Sood. With his generous initiatives to send the migrant workers to their respective home states who were stranded in the middle of nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus, he has earned a ânational heroâ status. This time around, the 46-year-old actor has come to the aid of his R... Rajkumar co-star Surendra Rajan. The latter had come to Mumbai to film a web series when the lockdown was announced in March, and has been stranded in the city ever since. According to a Navbharat Times report, when Sood came to know of Rajanâs plight, he offered his assurance that heâd send Rajan back to his hometown of Satna before June 18. Rajan, who has also appeared in Munna Bhai MBBS, said, âSonu Soodâs work is amazing and I am surprised that a man is working like this. One cannot do this unless he has a tremendous will to help people from within. He is doing extraordinary work and people like Sonu Sood are rare.â View the full article
  15. The purest relationship in the world is between a person and their pet. The unconditional love that people have for their tiny little best friend is adorable. And, it's not surprising that the best Chris in Hollywood also has the best little pupper. Chris Evans found his rescue pup Dodger while filming the movie Gifted. It was basically love at first sight for both of them and Chris knew immediately that Dodger was going home with him. Basically, in the movie, one of the last scenes was shot at a shelter and at first Chris didn't realize that the dogs in the scenes were actually up for adoption and not just dogs hired for the scene. And well, the rest was history. He was so sure that Dodger and he were destined to be together that he even filmed the first time they met and shared it a couple of years ago. This is the moment we met. He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello.

  16. Alright. So, we are about to get into some serious weirdness, which essentially originates from one manâs undying passion for professional wrestling - Dustin Rhodes. Son of the legendary wrestler Dusty Rhodes, Dustin saw a lot of success in the early stage of his career as he teamed up with his dad and got loud cheers from the audience in the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). Even on his own, he quickly became a fan favourite during his run with the WCW as 'The Natural Dustin Rhodes'. He grew up adoring the kind of creative and interesting work his father did. Wrestling became a passion for the man and he was completely invested in it. Ironically, it was his affection for the business which got him fired from WCW because he bladed his head (cut himself with a blade) in order to make the fight look more realistic. He did this, despite the companyâs warning, and it ended up costing him his job. Dustin then reached out to Vince McMahon for a fresh contract with WWF but was also worried about not getting enough attention from the audience on his own, simply because of having a Hall of Famer of the show as his father. He wanted to make a name for himself and asked McMahon for advice. The notorious genius that McMahon is, he asked Dustin to cover his entire head in gold paint and wear a body-hugging golden suit and come out as âGOLDUSTâ. An excited Dustin was all-in for the idea and despite McMahon repeatedly saying that the character was going to be androgynous, he agreed to play the part (Dustin later confirmed that he didnât know what the word âandrogynousâ meant and had to look it up in a dictionary). When his gimmick first appeared on a show back in 1995, nobody knew how to react to it but people sure as hell werenât going to forget him anytime soon. McMahonâs idea at the time was to make Dustin appear to be of indeterminate *** and âconfuse his opponents, gaining a psychological advantageâ according to ProWrestling Stories . As you could have guessed, the character caused a lot of controversies wherever the WWF travelled. Quite a few riots also took place in certain cities and McMahon was called out for spreading homophobia. Vince created this notion that Goldust wasnât gay but was playing on the homophobic fears of others. However, the notion didnât sit well with the people and Dustin was asked to tone down the âsexual actsâ as the character. The gimmick quickly lost all the gossip which used to surround it and the wrestler had to come up with an idea to make it interesting again or he might have to give it up altogether. Vince Russo, who used to write scripts for the show and for Goldust, writes in his autobiography: âMoments before we were about to pronounce the character dead, I got a call from Dustin. "give me one million dollars for breast implants" - goldust pic.twitter.com/wFFLVPz5OA â :) (@yourasshurtdone) May 6, 2019ââVince, Iâve got an idea,â he said. âTell Vince if he pays me one million dollars, I will get implants. ââWhat?â I said. âA penal implant?â ââNoâ answered Dustin. âBreasts.â âLet me break that down for you. Dustin Rhodes was considering getting breast implants for the wrestling business. Mind you, Iâm sure Dustin was reacting out of panic. Iâm sure if heâd really thought this through â a man walking around with womenâs breasts and all â he would have come to his sensesâ¦I think. And yes, McMahon did contemplate it. But thatâs what the business does to you. It makes sane men go nuts.â Former WWE commentator Jim Ross writes in his book titled JRâs Cookbook: True Ringside Tale, BBQ, and Down-Home Recipes: â[Dustinâs] vision was that it would be so weird and bizarre that our fans and new fans, for that matter, would pay good money to watch him wrestle. He suggested that he would be huge on the talk show circuit, and people all over the world would be clamouring to see the âBizarre Oneâ in person (especially in prison, and perhaps Amsterdam)!â According to JR, when Rhodes went to McMahon to pitch the idea of getting breast implants just to revive his character, he was absolutely stunned. To McMahonâs credit, he managed the situation in the best possible way. He commended Dustin for coming up with creative ideas for the show but that the company wasnât doing to go down that road. Now, over a decade and a half later, Dustin because of his love for the business, his in-ring capabilities and his performance with the microphone is considered to be one of the most well-respected professionals. But make no mistake, even at 51 years of age, he is still considered 'The Bizarre One'. View the full article
  17. Former West Indies skipper Darren Sammy has been making headlines in India ever since he opened up about facing racism and realising what the term âKaaluâ meant, the slur which was used to address him during his time with SunRisers Hyderabad for the Indian Premier League. Ever since, many have spoken about the kind of man Sammy is, why is he finally talking about something which happened over six years ago and why is he talking about personally getting in touch with all those people who referred to him by that name. recently I discovered a word that I was being called was not what it actually meant I need some answers. So before I start calling out names I need these individuals to reach out and please tell me thereâs another meaning to that word. I saw u as brothers https://t.co/Ouf7eh5Yu8 â Daren Sammy (@darensammy88) June 9, 2020 Well, hereâs a story about the Saint Lucian cricketer which might help you understand the kind of man he is. Back in 2013, when Sammyâs West Indies side visited India for a two-match Test series, it was a special occasion as Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar was about to hang his boots after the Wankhede clash. While the Windies roster failed to impress or have an impact throughout the series, it was Darren Sammyâs catch to dismiss Tendulkar and the reaction which followed, that became the talk of the town. Batting at 74, the master blaster misjudged Narsingh Deonarineâs delivery in the 48th over and edged an easy catch to Sammy who was standing at first slip. While Tendulkar realised that this is how his career was going to end and immediately started walking towards the dressing room, Sammy sat on the spot with the ball in his hand and head bowed down. His team mates approached him to celebrate the wicket but Sammy didnât move a muscle. âI took a brilliant catch to dismiss him but there was no emotion shown. Thatâs the level of respect I have for the man,â Sammy said at the end of the day. âWe have utmost respect for Sachin, respect for what heâs done for the game. He is a special man but he is made even more special the way the fans treat him. I donât think any other sportsman in any sport has gotten that type of treatment from his or her followers. Darren Sammy's reaction after taking @sachin_rt catch in his retirement match. pic.twitter.com/haWGmfPvM7 â R Dutta ð®ð³ (@RD_justRD) December 20, 2018 âIndia has set the benchmark as to how you support your own son of the soil. Many great cricketers have come and gone but Sachin is one that will never be forgotten. Kids who are probably not born yet, they will grow up in India and they will hear about Sachin Tendulkar. Thatâs the legacy he has left behind. So, to be part of it is a wonderful experience. Cricket, we would love to forget, how we played, but to be part of this momentous occasion is something I will never forget.â Thatâs the kind of man Darren Sammy really is. His love for the game, his respect for the players and his admiration for cricketing fans from all over the world make him one of the most well-regarded athletes one could ever come across. © Twitter - Darren Sammy To make him feel âdegradedâ by referring to the colour of his skin, thus not only insults the man himself but everything that he stands for. Casual or not, racial discrimination should never be supported. What Darren Sammy is doing right now is standing up for himself and all those who have come across such moments in their lives so that, maybe one day, their kids donât have to go through the same.

  18. Heaping praises on the kids, the 'Ertu?rul' actor penned a heartfelt caption in Turkish as well as Urdu
  19. The world of sports has witnessed numerous stars leaving their mark on history. Some enticed the world on the back of their natural talent, others captured the imagination of fans through hard work and passion for the sport. Cristiano Ronaldo is an athlete who belongs to the latter category. Throughout his life, Ronaldo has been compared to Lionel Messi. The Portuguese surely doesn't have the natural talent of Messi, but he adequately makes up for it with his impeccable hard work and unmatched dedication to succeed. Just like Kobe Bryant's 'Mamba Mentality', Ronaldo's willingness to improve himself by the day is what makes him a worthy adversary to Messi and an inspiration to budding talents. As expected, Ronaldo was on a rampant run this season, scoring 25 goals in 32 games. During December and February, he scored every week from Matchday 14 to 23 without a failure, including three braces and a hat-trick. But then, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak saw the sporting events getting suspended as the world came to a standstill. © Reuters The last game Ronaldo played was the much-anticipated derby against Inter Milan who lost 2-0. And, with the situation getting slightly better, the resumption of football across countries has left many fearing potential injuries for players. The likes of Danny Rose and David Moyes have already raised concerns over the degraded fitness levels of footballers which can lead to injuries upon resumption of football. But, Ronaldo is in a league of his own. Returning to Italy early in May, Ronaldo was forced to observe two weeks of quarantine in a Turin house as imposed by the law. Following the frustrating quarantine, Ronaldo began his individual training with Juventus trainers. On 31st May, Ronaldo shared an Instagram post of him practising his long-range shooting skills with goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio. He captioned the post: Practice to perfection with @carlopinsoglio Feeling stronger". And, stronger he emerged. View this post on InstagramPractice to perfection ð¯â½ï¸ with @carlopinsoglio ðð» Feeling strongerðªð»A post shared by (@cristiano) On June 1, the physiological data of Ronaldo measured by the Juventus staff was unbelievable. According to 'AS', The 35-year-old was subjected to multiple tests which included athletic evaluation and skill-performance with the ball with varied intensity. And, the results are not just good, but actually much better than his performance evaluated before lockdown in March. So, how did he do it? Here's the answer.

Arriving in Madeira after suspension of Serie A, worked tirelessly with the tools available at home. As claimed by 'Goal', Ronaldo worked out four hours a day to attain what many feel is impossible. View this post on InstagramKids, let the Dad do his work ð¤·ð»ââï¸â¤ï¸ð #stayhome #stayactiveA post shared by (@cristiano) For someone who returned back to Italy, not just looking like a beast, but also feeling like one, you'd expect the footballer to take it easy, as after all he is in better shape than before, right? Well, not Ronaldo. After completing his quarantine and tests, the Portuguese footballer was to join his first team training session on June 2. And, the Juventus talisman arrived for training four hours before any of his teammates showed up. View this post on InstagramExplode mode ð¥ð¨A post shared by (@cristiano) According to 'Tuttosport', Ronaldo arrived at the Continassa JTC at 12:52pm yesterday. Paying attention to the smallest details of his athleticism, Ronaldo trained by himself through multiple drills and sessions for four staggering hours before joining his teammates, who all arrived at 5pm, for the full-blown team session. That's the kind of commitment and passion that separates Ronaldo from the rest. And, believe it or not, it's nothing new for Ronaldo. View this post on InstagramHappy birthday to me!!ððªð½ð¤ªA post shared by (@cristiano) Carlos Tevez, who shared the dressing room with Ronaldo at Old Trafford, once opined: "If you got there (training ground) at half seven, he was there. I said to myself, 'How do you catch this guy out?' So I got there one day at half six and he was there. He was half asleep but he was there". The Portuguese former fitness coach Giovanni Mauri, too, had an interesting incident to share. "Cristiano is a phenomenon and an elite level athlete. We are talking about a world-class player who, when we returned home at 2am from a Champions League away match, would not jet off home in his car. No, he would stop at the training centre for at least an hour for various recovery exercises and cryotherapy," Mauri once said. View the full article

I wonât let them lose their trust in humanity and the system. The best part of this duty is that I get a good sleep no matter how many hours. It is true that I too get sleepless nights, because in the middle of the night I get up to check messages on social media or mail to see if anybody needs my help. I keep telling myself that there are many more people still waiting on the roads and I guess I will be able to complete my full quota of sleep only when I am able to send all of them back home." Well, we can't thank you enough, Sonu Sood! View the full article
  21. Former Pakistani pacer Waqar Younis canât get away from internet trolls and computer hackers who, according to the man himself, took over his social media account for the third or fourth time. Twitter users and Younisâ followers found something fishy when they noticed that the former athleteâs account had liked a pornographic picture and immediately started talking about it. © Reddit/umaravvan Addressing the issue, Younis posted a video from his social media account clarifying what had happened and that his account being hacked wasnât an isolated incident. He also said that in order to take care of the name and reputation of his family, he will deactivate all his social media accounts and move away from the platforms. pic.twitter.com/cl8iZFykVC â Waqar Younis (@waqyounis99) May 29, 2020 âToday I have to say with great regret that when I woke up this morning, someone hacked my Twitter account and liked grossly inferior videos from my account,â Waqar said in the video. âSo, it is a matter of great shame, it is a matter of great regret and discomfort. For me and my family too. I used to think that social media or Twitter is a way of interacting with people. âBut unfortunately this man ruined everything. By the way, the hacker has not done this for the first time. I have had an account hack three or four times.â View this post on Instagram#psl4 #psl #A post shared by (@waqyounis99)âI do not think this man is going to stop, so I have decided that I will not come on social media after today. I love my family more. You will not see me on social media after today. I am sorry if this hurts anyone.â Watching Younis being disappointed in whoever did this, and listening to him talk about how he will not be on social media platforms anymore, hundreds of his fans came to his rescue, showing love and support for him: Aap farishtey ho Waqar bhai. Mujhe to pehle hi yakeen tha ki aap aisa nahi kar sakte. â THE SKIN DOCTOR ð®ð³ (@theskindoctor13) May 29, 2020We know you Waqar bhai. You are a true Gentleman. No Hackers can change your Reputation.
