  1. The three-match ODI series between India and the visiting Australian team came to an end in favour of the hosts on Sunday after the experienced Indian batsmen paved way for the younger, more energetic players to chase down the total in style. Two of the best batsmen in the world, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli played their natural games - Sharma with his fireworks, capitalising on every opportunity to hit boundaries, and Kohli keeping in pace with the required run rate with quick singles in the early and mid phases of the Indian innings. INDIA WIN A clinical performance by #TeamIndia as they win by 7 wickets and clinch the series 2-1.#INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/LnhgbjdDI8 — BCCI (@BCCI) January 19, 2020 Having said that, there was one man who had the potential to become the bane of success for the Men in Blue during the three 50-over matches between Mumbai, Rajkot and Bengaluru - Adam Zampa. As a 27-year-old, Zampa has already made a name for himself as one of the more successful leg spinners and his reputation preceeded him ahead of the series. Before the first match at Wankhede, the Australian had dismissed Kohli three times in the given format of the game. The Indian batting lineup was taken by surprise with the level bowling produced by the men from Down Under and history repeated itself when Zampa picked the skipper's wicket for the fourth time on January 14. Kohli falls to Zampa once again...for the 4th time in the ODIs. No spinner has dismissed Kohli more than 4 times in the ODIs. The best ball ever bowled to Kohli in the ODIs is also from a leggie. When Adil Rashid cleaned up Kohli. #INDvAUS — slowyorker (@slowyorker1) January 14, 2020 “I just don't think he [Virat Kohli] is showing Zampa enough respect and he paid the price,” former Australian cricketer Steve Waugh had commented after the match. Zampa got the best of the Indian Captain yet again during the Rajkot match. Regardless of the fact that Kohli went on to strike a heroic 78 off 76, the leggie dismissed him for a record fifth time in ODIs eight innings. He also trapped Sharma with an LBW eight runs ahead of his half-century. Virat Kohli dismissed off the bowling of Adam Zampa for the 5th time in his ODI career. Among the bowlers who have played ODIs against Kohli, only Ravi Rampaul has dismissed Virat Kohli more often (6 times). #INDvAUS — Israr Ahmed Hashmi (@IamIsrarHashmi) January 17, 2020 Finally, Zampa picked the most important wicket of the day during the Bengaluru match when he forced Sharma to go for a big shot which led to him getting caught at the boundary by Mitchell Starc. Rohit Sharma skies one off Adam Zampa, falls for 119 India still need 80 off 78https://t.co/ECkYWX3Mmh | #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/rDJnNZH0Nq — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) January 19, 2020 While Zampa was responsible for removing the biggest names of the game from the crease in three consecutive matches, it was also evident that they were afraid to take risks against the bowler. Both Sharma and Kohli tried to live through his spell and waited for his six deliveries to get over before they could slam other bowlers for boundaries. But how is it that the spinner was able to create such terror in the hearts of two of the most fierce hitters of the sport? In an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Zampa explained: “I keep saying India is one of the toughest places to tour. I think keep it simple, don't be too hard on yourself. Preparation against these guys is really important. Virat [Kohli] is a really intense player, so body language is really important,” he said. “The conditions here, you see a lot of dew at night time so a couple of preparations with the wet ball is really important. And obviously you prepare differently for different guys,” he continued. “So, someone like Virat, you know he's sweating on bad bowling, he's got his strengths. And then you have guys like Rohit [Sharma], who obviously is a six-hitter, he loves hitting boundaries. You might bowl some good balls to him and he might defend them but you know that he's going to come hard at you, early or at the back-end of your over. So it's definitely individualised preparation. “I think very minor variations; good defensive bowling is important here. I don't think over-attacking as a leg spinner is really beneficial sometimes particularly on smaller grounds. I think your best ball and your best defense as a bowler is really important,” he added.

  2. Elon Musk is very active on Twitter. His tweets even landed him in court several times. So let's just say that he knows a thing or two about Twitter. And it looks like the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, himself wanted to get some advice. There's a video that's floating around on the internet, in which Jack Dorsey is seen seeking some professional advice from Elon Musk. In the video, he's seen asking for some direct feedback. “What are we doing horribly? What could we be doing better? What's your hope for Twitter's potential as a service?” Dorsey asked. What @elonmusk thinks Twitter could be doing better. #OneTeam pic.twitter.com/BvAUee7rmn — Mary Kate (@_maryjordan) January 16, 2020 He further asked, "If you were running Twitter, what would you do?" Well, Musk had one simple reply and he said Twitter could do better at distinguishing bots from real people. Musk said, "I think it would be helpful to differentiate between real and you know, not just like a verified person, but is this a real person, or is this a botnet or a sort of troll army or something like that? Basically, how do you tell if the feedback is real or someone trying to manipulate the system? Or probably real or probably trying to manipulate the system." © Reuters This is something that Twitter has heavily invested in. In fact, this is something we recently encountered during an on-going protest in India. It became really difficult to tell whether it was real people who were tweeting and spreading misinformation or just some random bots. We're glad Elon Musk decided to point it out directly to the CEO in an open forum. Furthermore, Elon Musk also answered some really interesting questions. Elon believes that the first tweet from Mars will be sent in the next five years from now. .@elonmusk on when the first tweet will be sent from Mars. #OneTeam pic.twitter.com/mW4y6FLDBq — Mary Kate (@_maryjordan) January 16, 2020 Elon Musk is one of the most influential people on Twitter.

  3. One of the healthiest aspects of a successful relationship is the fact that two people have a difference in opinion. Sharing different beliefs is what makes a relationship more interesting and long lasting because you have an array of things to talk and debate about compared to people whose views are too similar in nature. The dread with that is you may get bored too soon if you agree on everything simultaneously. That's why, if you find someone who can share a reversibly interesting perspective to yours, you're sure to have thriving conversations with them, which will inevitably teach you a lot too. © Thinkstock But most times the opposing views you hold, to that of your partner, can cause little or more friction if they're sensitive in nature and that something you have to recognise if you're with someone. You have to know that if you do have difference in opinions then what is the threshold of your partner's sensitivity towards their opinion and this mostly plays out a little unguarded when two people who're together have different political views. Now political view is not just the current political climate of your country or the government you've elected to govern you. Someone's politics can be their world view. It's whether they think certain humans deserve rights, it's how someone thinks the world should be, it's also someone's view on how the world can change or how they can change the world. To a lot of people their political views are sacrosanct and they'll do anything to defend them, since their views are actually a collation of what they understand of the world around it and how they want it to change for the better. © Thinkstock Currently the political scenario in this country has changed the narrative of how people think, act and react. Due to the current situation, the people who do not agree with the government policies are out on the streets protesting them and those who do, are making sure they protest the rightist realm and keep it intact. Well, I can't cite examples for any other intense political scenarios except the one India is facing right now and if you and your partner have opposing views about this, it can get a little stifling and infuriating, apart from the fact that you share diverse opinions on a lot of things in general. So, in case your discussion are leading to fights, screaming matches, a rollercoaster of emotions, anxiety and dilemma or making you question companionship with the concerned person in general, there are things you can do to pacify this situation and meet each other halfway. "Even people who deeply love each other are falling victim to the 'politics of personal destruction' where it's not enough to disagree with someone but you have to destroy them and everything they stand for in the process," says a popular marriage and family therapist, Gary Brown, Ph.D. So, here's what you can do, to lighten the argument a bit and make the other person see your point of view, and meet you halfway in what you believe too, while you do the same with them. (1) Listen & Acknowledge Thomas Haller and Chick Moorman, authors of the book, Couple Talk advise couples to encourage each other to keep talking, rather than tuning out. Tuning out or leaving a conversation is rude and unethical and can make the other person feel like you don't respect their opinion. Rather than walking away or tuning out, thinking it'll save you an argument, reason with them their philosophy behind their thought. Hear them out and acknowledge what they're saying, while you share your opinion and ask them to do the same. Make sure you let them know that you are listening and acknowledging and agreeing with their point of view, but you have a different opinion of the same! © UTV Motion pictures (2) You Can 'Agree To Disagree' "Be non judgmental and accepting of yourself and your friends n partner... understanding that ur bond is based on connection n love... even though you are different people from different backgrounds. Also unless you're willing to participate in political changes.. no points getting touchy or having a heated argument just for the sake of discussion" says clinical psychologist and life coach, Preeti Sethi. While you and your partner may have opposing viewpoints, it's always easier to agree to disagree, which means you can tolerate your partners viewpoints without accepting the opposing position. You both can respect each other opinion but you necessarily don't have to agree with everything your partner puts forth. Knowing your partner doesn't agree with you yet respects your views as a person is a good step towards resolution. © Fox Star Studios (3) Understand & Empathise "Seek to learn why your partner thinks differently than you do. This is a skill you'll need in many areas if you are to create lasting relationships," says Tina B. Tessina, a psychotherapist. Understanding the truest nature of your partner to resolve this particular dilemma is important. You have to understand what drives her, where she gets her view from, what experiences she had, what she's been through to know the fundamental crux of her debate with you. Once you understand these things, learn to empathise with them. Well, it'll be easier to empathise with someone you love than with someone you barely know, so it shouldn't be difficult to put yourself in her shoes, every once in a while. One you do that you will see the genesis of her thought process and learn to accept her and her ideology, which is her identity and who she really is. Make her do the same for you. © UTV motion Pictures (4) How Does Your Partner's Political Affiliation Affect The Relationship? "I would say politics is personal, but yes , if it impacts your gender roles etc, then you need to look at not only the political inclination but also other things One may support a political party for various reasons - money, business, connections, social pressure etc but one needs to look beyond the vote and question how it seeps into the relationship. How does it affect your mobility, child care, marital status - the legalities of it all?" - Says Prachi Gangwani, a Relationship Writer. Knowing if the effects of your partners political affiliation are negative or positive is very important. If the government she supports is doing more harm than good then it's important to make her see another perspective to her approach on all this. Without being pompous, and condescending, try and make her see why her ideology is not suited for the family and that she needs to see the larger picture. There are many people who take this approach, especially in India's current political scenario, a lot of people are educating others on what the right thing to think and do is and you can take a similar step. If you're the one thinking regressively, on the other hand, allow her to do the same for you. © Instagram (5) You Both Can Learn A Lot Even though you may have opposing views, you both can learn so much from each other and help each other grow ideologically. If you share the history of the current government, which you are well versed with, with your partner, she may learn a great deal and do a bit more research to know if she wants to continue supporting the current regime or not. It could work both ways. She can educate you about something you're unaware about and change your political stance on something too. You should be grateful and not take it upon yourself to have an ego war with your significant other. "I've been in a relationship with someone who has opposing political views we but don't dismiss each other's points of views. I have learnt a lot from her political affiliations and beliefs and I can so has she from mine. Currently we both are on opposing sides of the spectrum, where India's politics is concerned and we spend a quality amount of time trying to make the other see what's important and we've realised that we've been learning and growing simultaneously and also respect each other's points of view. Yes, there are arguments, but which relationship doesn't have any?" says Amit Sinha, a Chartered Accountant by profession. © Zee Studios Even our celebrity couple's share different points of views and educate and influence people about what is right and what's wrong and I believe that is very important for people to take a direction and read up more on what's happening. Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar, for example are one such couple who openly practice their political beliefs. While Twinkle opposes the current government, Akshay, who was seen holding the ABVP flag, stands with the government. But even so, they're an epitome on how to not hold each other accountable for holding different views and opinions, politically. India,where cows seem to receive more protection than students, is also a country that now refuses to be cowed down. You can't oppress people with violence-there will be more protests,more strikes,more people on the street. This headline says it all. pic.twitter.com/yIiTYUjxKR — Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) January 6, 2020 So, if you are in a relationship with someone who disagrees with your political views and ideologies, accept them regardless and follow the steps above to reach a neutral consensus and a lasting relationship!

  4. Samsung has already confirmed that the company will be hosting its “Unpacked” launch event on February 11, 2020. It is usually the time when Samsung announces new Galaxy S phones and this year the Galaxy S20 is expected to launch. A previous leak suggested that the Galaxy S11 will probably be called Galaxy S20 and we can expect three models this year from the South Korean giant. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We kind of have an idea that the Galaxy S20 will feature some of the latest specifications thanks to a recent leak put together by Phone Arena which details every single piece of information about the three upcoming smartphones. In the below image, the three phones that will be launching are the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. © Phone Arena The Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the first Samsung phone to sport a periscope zoom camera which will be an exclusive feature for the handset. The Galaxy S20 is also expected to launch on March 6, if this leak by Phone Arena is to be believed. At the moment, Phone Arena's information cannot be verified, which is why we advise you to take this leak with a pinch of salt. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Pricing for the three smartphones also leaked, revealing a $799 price tag for the S20, $999 for S20+ and $1,099 for the S20 Ultra. The Indian prices for the smartphones are expected to be different as Samsung tends to price it a bit lower in India, thanks to the presence of their manufacturing units in the country. We will learn more about the three units closer to the reveal event where the prices and the launch date will be officially announced. Source: Phone Arena View the full article
  5. Kangana Ranaut’s 'Panga' coach awestruck over how fast she learns. Photo: Pinkvilla Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming film, Panga, has been piquing the attention of audiences and critics alike. The film features Kangana playing the role of a mother who makes her comeback as a Kabaddi player. Kangana's trainer recently weighed in on her training programme and preparation schedule for Panga, during a conversation with the Mumbai Mirror. Her trainer, Gauri stated, “She told me to teach her the basic moves on our first meeting itself. I was shocked as I teach young girls and even they take almost six months to reach that level of training. Kangana picked up the dodging techniques just by observing it a couple of times. I was awestruck.” Explaining the rigors of training, Gauri explained, “Starting at 8 am every day, we would train for two hours. Kangana never missed a session and was punctual throughout. We shot in Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai in different weathers, but Kangana’s dedication never wavered.” “Kabaddi requires swift legwork, so her workout routine included squats and lunges. We trained on attack strategies, defence, how to go for the bonus and which leg to put the weight on in each position," she added. She further went on to talk about how pre and post pregnancy workout modules are different. She stated, “She had to weigh more than usual for the post-pregnancy shoot, so for that segment we focused on gaining muscle rather than losing weight.” Check out the film's trailer below

  7. Blink and you might miss it - as Youtube and digital media continues to dominate public consciousness, yet another record was shattered this Thursday, when megagroup BTS's rapper, Suga released a new music video - a mid-album interlude titled Shadow. Not only did the video smash past the group's previously held record by 3 minutes - it now proved that content on the internet could amass a staggering 1 million likes in barely half an hour. With supportive comments pouring in from all over the world in various languages, the 'Korean/Hallyu Wave' is perhaps the greatest revolution in music since the early 2010s. With the music video tackling serious themes such as the dark side of fame and fortune, it also serves as a reflection of the highs and lows of the industry that created it. Here's why K-Pop's become the international phenomenon it is today. Old Town Seoul Despite the flashy, hyper-produced quality associated with K-Pop today, the origins of westernised Korean pop music were surprisingly humble. Back in 1885, an American missionary by the name of Henry Appenzeller started performing and teaching American and British folk songs at schools in the Korean capital, Seoul. These songs became widely popular and were performed with Korean lyrics, retaining their original English tunes - a form of music called changga. © principlesofknowledge; Court musicians performing for the Joseon dynasty, late 1800s. During the postwar era of the 1940s, Korea experienced a similar cultural revolution as Japan - huge influxes of American soldiers brought about a revolution in music and filmmaking, with demand increasing for rock musicians to perform in bars for the troops. Several young musicians from both countries saw the option as well-paying and interesting work, a rarity in Korea after their civil conflict in the 50s. This led to the rise of several live-music bars in Seoul - nearly 300 venues hosted live bands that performed Beatles covers and their own compositions. © Korea Times; Add4, a band formed in 1962 that revolutionised the landscape of Korean music. Soon, Korean cinema followed suit - propelling Korean media into widespread fame across the east as the country's economy bloomed. Groups such as the Kim Sisters, shown below, reached popularity in America as well - even hitting the #7 spot on Billboard. It was all a taste of things to come. The Modern Era K-Pop Machine Today, Korean pop music is characterised by huge entertainment conglomerates, and intensely trained stars that either work solo, or more commonly, form their own groups. These massive companies are dominated by what's known as the 'big three' - SM Entertainment, YG Entertianment and JYP Entertainment, all of which were founded in the mid-90s. The first and most obvious reason as to why K-Pop, and Korean culture, in general, has become a global hit, is the well-oiled machine that runs the entire show - the most important people aren't necessarily the artists themselves, but the people who manage, guide and often exploit them. © Washington Post; Dance lessons at Def Dance Skool, one of Seoul's most famous K-Pop academies. Out of all these students, barely a handful will become truly famous. Through intensely selective trials starting at the age of 10-12, music studios scout and recruit talented children, who are then enrolled at specialised schools that train them in dance, singing and even guide them in moderating a public persona to keep them PR ready. They're then groomed to focus on hours of rehearsals, public performances and group shows while simultaneously preparing for the trials and tribulations they may face as future pop-stars. Once a group (or the rare solo artist) has been trained to perfection, the studios chart out music releases, marketing plans and tours - and depending on how well they're received, watch the money rake in. In an almost uncanny level of planning and meticulousness, the group is then scheduled for a 'comeback', where a new album release, special TV spots and new visual themes are explored. According to the Wall Street Journal, SM Entertainment invests an average $3 million to train their idols. © Wikimedia; Kim Jong-Hyun of Shinee is one of the victims of K-Pop's pressures, had tragically committed suicide in 2017. His suicide note mentions a 'devouring depression' and his struggles with fame. While the industry is notorious for exploitative contracts, abusive business practices and perhaps an over-orchestrated sense of perfection, the results speak for themselves - and several artists accept the sacrifice of their personal lives and freedom as necessary for success. What Makes K-Pop, K-Pop? Taking a step back, we can finally focus on the fun part - the songs and music videos themselves. The most immediate and common characteristics are heavily stylised, catchy and universally appealing music, slick dance routines and a heavy emphasis on dramatic fashion choices as well as aesthetic visual backgrounds. Each of these is further divided to give each idol their own individual 'place in the team', forming a broader image that defines a K-Pop group. Lyrically, Korean lends itself well to the pop-rap synthesis that's become immensely popular in modern music. English also makes a common appearance - allowing fans across the world to sing along. According to a representative from the University of California, “contemporary Korean pop culture is built on transnational flows taking place across, beyond, and outside national and institutional boundaries.” Perhaps this explains how even the Arab world and India have become devoted fanbases despite major cultural differences. Some of this implies that K-Pop is entirely designed to present an easily-digestible, mass produced form of music, but on diving a bit deeper into the subculture, it's very likely that you'll find something unique and interesting, regardless of your tastes. Take the BTS music video of Mic Drop - it's a loud, proud club banger with a focus on attitude, sass and a haters gonna hate message. It contrasts completely with 2018's Self-Love Ballad, Epiphany - putting across a similar message but with completely different visuals and genres of music. Personally, what I feel has helped K-Pop and specifically BTS retain their throne is the ability to consistently maintain their high standards while subtly reinventing themselves. Suga's latest track casts aside the usual cliche of love songs and flaunting *** appeal with money. Instead, it's a direct addressal of the sky-high tensions a performer has to live with, directed straight at a fanbase that has grown accustomed to perfection from their idols. And if anything, further helps cement the legacy of K-Pop as we move into a new decade of innovation in global music. View the full article
  8. With the success of Ghost Stories and a couple of more ambitious projects in her bag, Janhvi Kapoor is currently on cloud nine as she officially entered the '2020 will be my year' club. She maybe only two projects old, but she's already proved that she's here for the long run. Recently, the Dhadak actress graced the cover of iDiva and had what can be called an honest conversation about herself, her stardom, people's expectations from her, her strategy of dealing with social media trolls and her idea of an ideal man. While the rumours of Ishaan and Janhvi float on social media once in a while, Janhvi just revealed who her ideal man is. When asked about who she will kill, marry and date; she conveniently dodged the options of 'kill' and 'date' but she did reveal who she wants to marry. View this post on Instagram Stylist - @devanshi.15 Makeup & Hair - @eltonjfernandez Photographer - @rohanshrestha PR Agency- @hypenq_pr Social Media Marketing: @shivanichatterjee, @akankshasharad @shawali_gupta_ Video Editor: @sushiljaiswal2013 Styling Assistant - @20simran A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor (@janhvikapoor) on Jan 7, 2020 at 11:30pm PST She said, "I think I would marry Jack Lemmon's character in this film called 'The Apartment'. I think I would be happy if I married him. He's super cute and I also think he has a great sense of humour which is very important." Take notes, guys, take notes! Every time people talk about star kids, they assume that things are pretty easy for them, they don't have to work that hard to stick around in the industry. Well, that maybe true but so is the fact that they sometimes have to work extra hard to prove that they can survive even without their family name. Janhvi said, "I think of it as a responsibility. My family, my mom in particular, got so much love and appreciation from the audience. As a consequence, I have also got some of that love. I now have to work doubly hard to prove that I deserve it, on my own, also." She further said that she's not vying for stardom, she's here to do good work. While she has yet to learn a lot about movies, she's cracked one thing - dealing with social media trolls which is not everyone's cup of tea. Janhvi has been a constant target for trolls on social media, who seem to be always looking for reasons to take a dig at her. He pro-tip: she doesn't care. View this post on Instagram Ghost Stories ð» now on Netflix! A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor (@janhvikapoor) on Jan 1, 2020 at 2:00am PST "You have to be brave to put yourself out there. In the beginning it was really weird, but I have gotten used to the social media hate. I am just trying to be as authentic as possible," said Janhvi who has 7.1 million followers on Instagram. She further added, "I don't care if you think I am wearing too much makeup, even though I am not. If you think my gym shorts are too short, then you probably don't sweat on your legs as much as I do. I am sorry, my sweat glands work like that. You probably don't work out as much as I do." On the work front, she is currently working on Takht, Dostana 2 and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.

  9. Kumail Nanjiani knows how to break the internet. From some really zany and off the cuff comments and jokes to some really colourful interviews, the man knows how to keep an audience at the edge of their seat. © Reuters When he posted a few photographs after getting ripped as a lumberjack, the internet went berserk. So much so, that PornHub acknowledged his physique, in the most unique way possible. © Instagram/kumailn Now, you might imagine that Kumail had to work out like a beast and practically had to live in the gym to get a physique as chiselled as that one. However, his trainer, Grant Roberts of Granite Gym in Beverly Hills, California, revealed, that his intensive workout routine was just a part of his transformation. Notably, Roberts himself has acted in a number of films, including the 2009 sports drama, Invictus, which starred Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. © Instagram/grantrobertsfit In a recent interview with a major US-based fitness magazine, Roberts revealed that although Nanjiani did work out like a mad man and went full gung ho on whatever was asked of him, his intensive workout regime was just a part of it. It seems the devil's in the details. Here's what exactly Kumail had to go through to get in shape for his role in Marvel's The Eternals. © Instagram/kumailn An Individualised Fitness Plan © Instagram/kumailn First and foremost, it was important to formulate a customised fitness regime that would work for Kumail in a manner that suited him the best. The thing is, most people forget that what works for someone else, might not work at all for them. In such a case, a personalised plan, that has been developed by expert nutritionists, fitness trainers and gym trainers becomes a must. Says Roberts, “With Kumail, the main goal was increasing muscular size, dropping excess body fat and creating total body symmetry, so keeping his composition and lifestyle in mind, we came up with a plan that would work around him.” Nutrition © iStock Robert says that apart from working out 4-5 days a week, Kumail had to tweak his diet a number of times. “Initially, the focus was on protein, water, healthy fast like omega 3and just the right amount of carbs. However, with time, he had to make some finer adjustments to make him look more vascularly fit, without dropping muscle,” he continues. Recovery © Instagram/emilyvgordon Notice how in the previous point we wrote that Kumail worked out for 4-5 days a week? Well, that's because your days for rest, or days where you let your body recover, are important. Says Roberts, “Whether you're working out for 15-20 mins, or attending two sessions a day, intense work out routines are exhausting, can be painful, and drains you completely.” On his days for recovery, Kumail would often go for massages and stretching exercises, so that his muscles wouldn't atrophy. Disciplining The Mind © iStock The first actual step in one's journey towards a fitter self is making the decision, and setting reasonable plans and achievable goals. Says Roberts, “Intelligent program design includes achievable landmarks and checkpoints while leaving room for modifications, whether results are ahead or behind schedule.” Maintenance © Instagram/kumailn Finally, there is the manner in which you maintain yourself after you've got the physique that you wanted. It is alarmingly easy to let things go once you've hit your desired inches, or hit a certain weight. However, what follows next is the actual task. Says Roberts, “Maintenance requires working out hard enough to keep everything from atrophying and consuming a maintenance diet of just the right amount of essential water, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals while keeping non-essential carbohydrates in check.” Now, it may not be as intense and seemingly rigid as the process of whipping yourself in shape, but because it is a constant endeavour, things become challenging. Considering the people that Kumail would be cast opposite in The Eternals, which includes the likes of Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek & Kit Harington among other stalwarts, being funny in an action film, while it may have its moment, won't simply cut it. No wonder, Kumail turned towards the professionals for help. View the full article
  10. Vikrant Massey, who has charmed the audience with a slew of diverse roles, is now trying something different yet again with his upcoming movie, Chhapaak. He will be seen essaying the role of Amol, the life partner of Malti, an acid attack survivor played by Deepika Padukone. In one of the interviews during the promotion of the movie, he was asked about how can acid violence be eradicated from society, to which he said that parents should give sensible schooling to their sons and tell them to accept a woman's no as a no. © Fox Star Entertainment “There is a different kind of upbringing we give to the son of the house than the daughter, where we do not teach a little boy how to accept rejection. Later, it turns into an ego issue. In most cases of acid-violence, the boy throws acid on a girl when she rejects his marriage proposal,” Vikrant told IANS. View this post on Instagram Those in love don't mind the #NokJhok. Where there is love, there is forgiveness. . . . @deepikapadukone @meghnagulzar @foxstarhindi @_kaproductions @mrigafilms @zeemusiccompany @shankarehsaanloy @siddharth.mahadevan #Gulzar A post shared by Vikrant Massey (@vikrantmassey87) on Dec 17, 2019 at 8:55pm PST He went on to add, “The first step to stop the crime is to change the upbringing, and parents need to take that step. Boys need to learn to accept 'no' for an answer and (realize) why consent is of utmost importance. The right kind of parenting can build a progressive society I guess.” Well, that's quite a strong statement indeed that Vikrant has made. Calling on men to bury their egos and accept a woman's rejection, Vikrant wants men to know that throwing acid just to seek some sort of revenge is nothing short of barbaric and inhumane, and has no place in our society. © Fox Star Entertainment Coming to the movie Chhapaak, it is trying to start a conversation on acid attacks showing the life of real-life survivor Laxmi Aggarwal on the big screen. Deepika Padukone will be seen stepping into the shoes of Laxmi in the movie. Here's the trailer: Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is slated to hit the screens on January 10. View the full article
  11. Maintaining hair follicles is already a difficult job. From using the wrong type of products to getting a wrong haircut, there are plenty of mistakes that can ruin your overall your appearance. To bring an end to it so your follicles stay safe. You don't need to blame your barber or diet routine anymore because there's a fix to everything. Here's how you can steer clear of common hair mistakes. 1. Being Rough With Your Scalp A busy schedule can make you rush to shower. It might look like this won't cause any issue but it's actually weakening the hair follicles and also increasing the risk of dandruff. Instead, rub the shampoo in your palms and gently apply it on your scalp. This promotes hair growth without spoiling your hair texture. © istock 2. Using Two In One Shampoo/Conditioner If you think it is a good deal, you are highly mistaken. Shampoo and conditioner both have different jobs for the hair. The shampoo helps in cleaning up your pores and it also helps to get rid of accumulated dirt. Conditioner, on the other hand, acts as a moisturising agent. Don't bother using 2-in-1 products and instead get different items. © istock 3. Over Styling Sometimes the fragrance of hair products can make you use it more than necessary. Applying hair styling products excessively can be disastrous for your follicles. Instead, invest in a decent comb and hair styling products. Be it wax or gels, choose it as per your hair type to get the most out of it and avoid hair mistakes. © istock 4. Wrong Hairstyle Your favourite actor can probably pull off a particular hairstyle because it suits the face type. Now, if you plan on getting something similar impulsively, well, that will be the biggest mistake of your life. Don't get carried away and let the hairdresser do his job. Check for hairstyles that suit your face type and then recreate it in versatile ways. © Instagram,Hakim Aalim View the full article
  12. Arguably one of the most vital cogs in Team India's set-up, Hardik Pandya has been away from cricketing action on the field as his teammates enjoyed a great home season. A persistent back injury which saw him undergoing surgery last October might have kept him on the sidelines, but the Indian all-rounder has become the talk of the town ever since he broke the surprising news of his engagement. The 26-year-old left everyone in disbelief after he announced his engagement with Serbian actress Natasa Stankovic at the start of the new year. The news was not only a surprise for the cricket fraternity and fans, but also for Hardik's parents who had no idea that their son was going to get engaged anytime soon. Hardik's father Himanshu spilt the beans on how they reacted to the surprising news of their son's engagement. “Natasa is a very nice girl, and we have met her in Mumbai on a number of occasions. We knew that they were going on a vacation to Dubai, but had no clue that they were going to get engaged. This took us by surprise. We came to know about it after they got engaged,” Pandya Sr. was quoted as saying by Bombay Times. © Instagram/@hardikpandya93 Hardik shares a close bond with his father and has been showering him with gifts including expensive cars in the past. It was his father's poor health conditions early in his life that saw Hardik mature before his age as he joined his elder brother Krunal to earn a living for their family. However, those days are far gone and the Pandyas seem to be doing just fine.

  13. Former Iranian general Qasem Soleimani. Photo: FilePARIS: The world reacted with alarm on Friday after top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in a US strike in Iraq, with leaders appealing for restraint. The assassination was praised by US President Donald Trump´s Republicans but elsewhere there were warnings of the danger it could inflame regional tensions. Following are some of the reactions from around the world: 'Severe revenge'"Martyrdom was the reward for his ceaseless efforts in all these years," Iran´s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Twitter, declaring three days of mourning. "With him gone, God willing, his work and his path will not be stopped, but severe revenge awaits the criminals who bloodied their foul hands with his blood and other martyrs´ in last night´s incident." Khamenei called Soleimani the "international face of the resistance" and said he was killed by "the most cruel of those on earth". All people who back the resistance would be his "avengers". "The lack of our devoted and dear general is bitter, but continuing the fight and achieving final victory will embitter the murderers and criminals even more." 'Price of killing Americans'"In a display of resolve and strength, we struck the leader of those attacking our sovereign US territories," top House of Representatives Republican Kevin McCarthy said in a statement. "Wow - the price of killing and injuring Americans has just gone up drastically," Senator Lindsey Graham, a close confidant of Trump, wrote on Twitter. 'Adventurist step'"The killing of Soleimani... was an adventurist step that will increase tensions throughout the region," the Russian foreign ministry was quoted as saying by news agencies RIA Novosti and TASS. "Soleimani served the cause of protecting Iran´s national interests with devotion. We express our sincere condolences to the Iranian people." 'Dangerous escalation'The killing of Soleimani risks provoking a "dangerous escalation of violence", US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. "America -- and the world -- cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return." "President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox," former vice president Joe Biden said in a statement. "Iran will surely respond. We could be on the brink of a major conflict across the Middle East." 'Appeal for restraint'"China has always opposed the use of force in international relations," foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a press briefing. "We urge the relevant sides, especially the United States, to remain calm and exercise restraint to avoid further escalating tensions." He said Iraq´s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity must be respected. China, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, is a key partner of Iran and major buyer of the country´s oil. 'Spark a devastating war'Iraq´s caretaker prime minister Adel Abdel Mahdi said the US strike, which also killed an Iraqi commander, was an "aggression" that would "spark a devastating war". "The assassination of an Iraqi military commander in an official post is an aggression against the country of Iraq, its state, its government and its people," he said in a statement. Abdel Mahdi said the strike was a "flagrant violation of the conditions authorising the presence of US troops" on Iraqi soil. 'World more dangerous'"We have woken up to a more dangerous world," France´s Europe Minister Amelie de Montchalin told French radio, saying President Emmanuel Macron would consult soon with players in the region. "In such operations, when can see an escalation is under way, but what we want above all is stability and de-escalation," Montchalin said. "All of France´s efforts... in all parts of the world aim to ensure that we are creating the conditions for peace or at least stability," she added. "Our role is not to take sides, but to talk with everyone," Montchalin said. 'Cowardly aggression'The Syrian government accused Washington of trying to fuel conflict in the Middle East. Syria is "certain that this cowardly US aggression... will only strengthen determination to follow in the path of the resistance´s martyred leaders," a foreign ministry official was quoted as saying by the state news agency SANA. 'Divine victory'Iraqis who have demonstrated for months against a government they see as beholden to Iran broke into song and dance after the US strike. "Oh Qasem Soleimani, this is a divine victory," they cheered in Baghdad´s iconic Tahrir Square, the epicentre of their movement. "This is God´s revenge for the blood of those killed," one added, after nearly 460 people were killed in violence that many demonstrators have blamed on Iran-backed security forces.
  14. Selena Gomez had an amazing 2019, away from all the media glare. The star who was recovering after a kidney transplant, did manage to steer clear from the limelight, while also keeping her fans updated regarding her life through social media. If you are wondering how the Lose You To Love Me songstress spent 2019, be sure to get surprised as she did have a pretty unusual year. Selena, in her first Instagram post of 2020, revealed what the last year comprised of and it is none other than her majorly ‘third-wheeling.’ There were card games, trips, friends' weddings, and a lot of third wheeling, the singer declared. "2019 year of being the third wheel.. I loved it," she wrote on one photo from July. The singer then uploaded almost a five-minute long video, capturing everything she achieved during 2019, and we have it all covered. Here's how Selena third-wheeled all through 2019Selena hung out with her BFF Taylor Swift and her cat Benjamin Button at the latter's house. Currently, the singer is anticipating and working towards the release of her album RARE scheduled on January 10.
  15. Sara Ali Khan while getting ready to bring her magical performance on theaters with her third film, has a special surprise for her many fans. Turning to Instagram, the 24-year-old starlet revealed that her fans can now watch her upcoming offering Aaj Kal exclusively with her even before its release. Along with a video message, in which she dished the details about her fans getting a chance to hang out with the star to watch the Imtiaz Ali-directorial, Sara wrote: “Don’t be late Don’t miss the date Come fill your plate Come enjoy with me and your mate.” “@fankindofficial and I bring to you a one of kind experience where YOU and I can watch a special screening of my next movie together, even before the movie releases in the theatre!,” she added. “All you need to do is log on to fankind.org/Sara and contribute now! Your donations will support ‘Committed Communities Development Trust’ to help provide care and support to children & families affected by HIV,” the caption further said. The film starring Kartik Aaryan alongside Sara, will hit hit theaters on February 14, 2020.
  16. Music festivals are a dime a dozen these days, but often times it's very hard for the organisers to get things right. It takes a lot to blend the world of fantasy with powerful dance music, all while hosting a diverse crowd and world renowned artists. Sunburn's homecoming this year in Goa after many years promised all of that and then some. If you've attended any of the Sunburn events before then you already know that it's all about the music, the ambiance, the production, the vibe, and the overwhelming energy of the artists performing live. You can expect an incredible turnout bustling with energy. And that's exactly what this year's Sunburn was all about! © The Moneta Line Up That'll Leave You Spoilt For Choice This year's main stage saw some of the biggest artists in the world perform and turn it into the biggest party of the year. From Lost Frequencies, Jonas Blue and DJ Snake on Day 1 to Flume, The Chainsmokers, and Martin Garrix performing over the next two days, I think it's safe to say that the festival lineup left the audience spoilt for choice. It was truly incredible to see all the artists perform live. I think the old-school carnival theme was just perfect for this year. We'll get to the production part a bit later, but let's just say that it was fantastic. © Rudgr I am a huge fan of the young Belgian prodigy, Felix aka Lost Frequencies, and his set was among the best. As expected, he dished out thumping deep house with Like I Love You and Are You With Me. I also found myself spending a lot of time at the Psychedelic Circus Stage to jive to the sets by gems like Progressive Brothers, Shiva Manvi and more. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Lost Frequencies (@lostfrequencies) on Dec 27, 2019 at 9:01pm PST Dj Snake was at his best too. His ultimate anthems and classics amidst a barrage of LED panels, strobes, pyrotechnics, fireworks, CO2 cannons, and lasers sure worked its charm on the crowd. Greeting fans with "Namaste" and closing his set with a positive message was what I'd say, the highlights of the festival. © RUDGR I couldn't get a chance to interact with DJ Snake since he was on a tight schedule, but I did sit down with the Australian Grammy Award winning producer Flume the next day before his maiden performance in India. "This is my time first performing in India, so I don't know what to expect from the crowd. But I've been told that the energy is really high, so I can't wait to go out there," he said just minutes before his performance. Flume, by the way, is really excited for his new album which he plans on releasing in 2020. He's also looking forward to some interesting collaborations next year, but we'll have to wait a bit to learn more about it. © MensXP While Flume didn't reveal much about this project, Ritviz, was super excited for his Sunburn set and revealed some of the things that he's working on. Before he pumped up the audience with his signature sound, he said that he's releasing a full album this year and he's super excited. "I am also working on music for a movie, but I can't talk about it yet," he said. The main stage also hosted some big names like Fedde Le Grand, The Chainsmokers, and more. The “Closer” and “Paris” hitmakers seemingly brought everything they had to the performance and the duo took us through the highlights of their discography. The third day of the festival was also buzzing with energy as everybody was waiting for the final performance of Martin Garrix to end the show on a high note. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Martin Garrix (@martingarrix) on Dec 29, 2019 at 10:10am PST The Sunburn performance was Martin's last show this year as he's taking a break for New Years. This is the first time he'll not be playing anywhere during the New Year's as he intends to spend some time with his family and friends. Garrix is a man who knows how to get the crowd moving and that's exactly what his performance was all about. A Circus Theme For The Ultimate Homecoming As I mentioned earlier, this year's Sunburn festival was based on a circus theme, and the entire arena was dolled up for the big celebration. With stellar production, six massive stages, assorted adventure zones, a lively flea market, a lip-smacking food zone and a dynamic camping site; the festival was truly lit AF. © RUDGR Karan Singh, the COO, Percept Live says, "We wanted to do something that's bigger and better than anything has never been done before, so that's what we came up with." This year, we also saw a brand-new underground music venture , the Solaris Stage host label showcases by Sin City and Vivrant with acts like Hosh, Jeremy Olander, Khen, Anish Sood, Ana Lilia, Marino Canal, Pierre Ravan and Greenage. The main stage had a completely different vibe on the last day when Maceo Plex, DJ Luciano took over people with their psychedelic sets. © RUDGR Overall, I think the Sunburn 2019 was quite an event. It definitely wasn't looking like a normal show where they'd put up a couple of stages with few random artists. "It has evolved into a cultural phenomenon, it's almost like a piece of art. Sunburn is really a next level festival," said Karan while talking about the three-day extravaganza. For me, personally, Sunburn was a magical mix of breathtaking production, brilliantly choreographed acts and a phenomenal lineup of artists. Obviously, nobody knows what to expect from the event next year, but in the meantime, you can check out other Sunburn gigs like Sunburn Arena, Sunburn Campus and more that keeps happening throughout the year. Sunburn is also getting into the live music space like Rap, Hip-hop, Pop. etc., so I've been told that we should expect more of that in 2020. View the full article
  17. For almost a century, the car as we know it did not change much. It was powered by the same principles of internal combustion that had powered the first mass-produced car, the Ford Model T, was driven around in the same manner for almost 100 years, and had basically the same problems and issues that cars had, a hundred years ago. © Wiki Commons Sure, there were attempts to change the dynamics a little here and there, but they were purely experimental, and far from any sort of homologation, or becoming mainstream. However, as we approached the 2010s, things started to look a little different, and how. There's no denying that Tesla has been the most influential carmaker of the decade, with reasons that go beyond the manner in which they popularised the electric car. This was the decade that we petrolheads got a glimpse, of what the future holds for us, thanks to these cars: 2012 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Electric © Daimler The 2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Electric is the first true GT roadster that combined the prowess of electric power with practical everyday usage, at least as far as a sportscar is concerned. Even though it was shockingly expensive and obviously beyond the reach of the masses, irrespective of the fact that whether people could afford it or not, in many senses, it was largely responsible for people (mainly pedantic purists) to even consider adopting electric cars. This was the first sign that cars that excite and appeal to the nine-year-olds in adult men would not die when the planet finally runs out of petroleum. Porsche Taycan 4S © Porsche The Porsche Taycan 4S solidified what the SLS AMG & Tesla had been doing and really brought it home for the masses. As revolutionary and pathbreaking as Tesla and their cars were, there was no denying the fact that their cars had some serious quality control issues. As a car, the Taycan was not groundbreaking; however, what it signalled was the arrival of legacy and reputable brands in the market for the masses, in a manner that was easily accessible, and more importantly practical. In other words, although Tesla showed us the path to the future, it was Porsche who showed us how to get there, collectively. Tesla Model S © Tesla No other car had as much on carmakers and the zeitgeist around cars as much as the Model S. Sure, it has its share of problems, and has for long been the controversy's child, but make no mistake, the Model S reimagined how cars would be. Not only was it the first car to have a practical and reliable range that made it usable in the real world, it was fast, and had features that made it very futuristic. The ones made after 2017 even had the capability of complete autonomous driving, at SAE Level 5, the highest level of automation. However, due to regulations, the feature had to be implemented in a very constricted manner. The Tesla Model S was truly ahead of its time and helped usher in what the car from the future might be like. Tesla Cybertruck © Tesla Even though it was the butt end of a number of jokes, the Cybertruck is monumental when it comes to envisioning SUVs and performance vehicles in the future. If ever we are to colonise Mars, this is how cars will be. Yes, there are a few kinks here and there that Tesla really needs to iron out, but the fact that we have a car as capable as this one, means that in case we ever have to face a post-apocalyptic armageddon, we will survive. Ferrari LaFerrari © Ferrari SpA Finally, we have the LaFerrari. Considering that it is the final Ferrari to have a mid-mounted V12 engine, and quite possibly, the final iteration of the V12 engine, it is truly a poignant car. In that sense, it truly is the definitive Ferrari, or as LaFerrari translates into, The Ferrari. Although Ferrari had stated that they would never go all-electric, and that petrol engines will always find a way in their roster, we know that one day, eventually, they will have to phase out the internal combustion engine. Still, it is a nice touch how, for what may be the swansong of their V12s, they came up with a car that harnesses the best that electric power has to offer, with the prowess of a powerful, naturally aspirated V12.

  18. American comedian Kevin Hart's wife breaks down in the middle of an episode from the latest Netflix docuseries revolving around his life. The docuseries focuses on his personal life and includes the recent events, including his cheating scandal and the Oscars drama that he went through. The series titled "Kevin Hart: Don't F**k This Up" has grabbed a lot of eyeballs mainly for his wife, Eniko Parrish's revelations about how she found out about the scandal. According to her, Parrish was seven to eight months pregnant when the bombshell was dropped on her courtesy a DM. "How I found out was a direct message (DM). I don't know who it was," she said. "They sent me an edited video of Kevin, and you know, another woman... I was pregnant at that time. I was about seven or eight months pregnant. I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately and I just lost it. I called him, I'm crying, I'm like pissed. Right then and there, I kept saying, 'How the f**k did you let that happen?'" Parrish said she felt Hart had "publicly humiliated" her. She spoke about how it felt suffocating that the entire drama surrounding her husband was on Instagram. Parrish recalled how "it was an ongoing fight all the time" and that she had told her husband that if this was what he wanted to do, she couldn't be part of it. However, her baby was what helped her "maintain a level head" at the time and she kept worrying about her family. Parrish said she wanted her child Kenzo to be able to grow up and get to know his father hence she forgave him. She credit Hart by saying "he's a better man now because of it [scandal]". The actor had admitted to cheating on his wife in 2017. He had written a lengthy Instagram post on how Hart had "put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did". In a later scene from the documentary, Hart can be seen with his wife and child. He can be heard in the voiceover saying: "The toughest thing was just telling my wife. That conversation was a tough conversation. There was no easy way to have that conversation." The actor said that the worst part of such a behaviour was knowing how it made others, closest to someone, feel. He said by looking at the effect it had on Parrish, he was able to feel her pain. "That really tore me up," he said. Hart's wife said she believes in second chances "so, as long as he behaves, we're good."
  19. Oh yes, waking up wrapped around in your cozy blanket, three hours later than your normal wake-up time, staying in bed to finish your favourite web-series instead of doing laundry and deal with the dirty dishes, skipping showers on weekends, wait what? Just me then… hmm. Do you feel that your productivity during the winters goes way down as compared to warmer days? Well, you are not the only one. In fact, research shows that January is the least productive month of the year. But why is it that we feel exhausted or out of energy during the winters? Is it all in our head or do physical factors actually affect us in ways that make us in this season? via GIPHY Turns out there is one thing and one thing alone (outside of our psyche) that is to be blamed for not letting us go to the gym like we used to in summers and that is: the sun. According to physician Dr. Jennifer Ashton, the smaller days and lack of sunlight that the winters bring along with them have a direct impact on a person's mood and the ability to make things happen. Dr. Ashton says that sunlight affects your circadian rhythm or your internal clock. This changes the serotonin levels in your brain. via GIPHY The National Institute of Mental Health (USA) states that the changes in the serotonin levels in your brain leads to various symptoms such as lethargy, losing interest in activities you normally loved to do and yes, the temptation to crawl under a bulky blanket. While productivity goes down for everyone, it is found that people working from 9-5 get affected the most. When they leave for work in the morning, the sun isn't out yet and on their way back, it has already set. So they are missing out on all the goodness of serotonin that the sun has to offer. via GIPHY And hence as the time passes, and your serotonin levels continue to go down and your become less and less productive. This seasonal lapse in productivity is known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD). “We have a tendency to want to blame everything on psychological causes,” Dr. Norman Rosenthal, one of the experts who named the condition, told The New York Times. “We overlook the obvious, which is that it's dark as pea soup outside. That's why I think [SAD] goes unrecognized — it's right in front of our noses.” Thankfully, there are some simple yet effective ways to overcome SAD. All you need to do consciously take care of yourself. The reason behind such laziness simply comes from not getting enough sunlight. Head out for a brief walk after lunch or stand next to the window for five minutes. via GIPHY The Independent also suggests maintaining a good sleep cycle and trying to stick to the one that you have during summers. This helps maintain that internal clock we were talking about before. It is normal to feel a bit more lazy during the winters as compared to the months of May, June and July. All you need to do is keep reminding yourself of why it is that you started doing something. Self-realisation is the biggest motivation factor that you need to skyrocket your productivity right up.

  20. Actress and singer Anna Kendrick has finally responded to the flirtatious tweet she received from Hockey player Anthony Beauvillier on Christmas Day. Although the 22-year-old New York Islanders star said only “hi” to the 34-year-old Kendrick, it was the amount of funny third party replies that promoted the actor that prompted her to respond. Here are the hilarious replies that Beauviller received on his “hi”. ““Remember Beau when you saved me from a burning building, cooked me a 7 course meal and taught me 8 languages , that was a great day,” former Islander Bruno Gervais wrote about Beauvillier.” “Dude. You donated all 5 of your kidneys to everyone of my children. Thank you! Thank you! Just in case they need a spare. So generous,” podcaster Dave Wheeler posted. “Hi Beau, Just wanted to say thank you again for passing on that film role and surgesting me! Massively appreciate your heart!” actor Matthew Postlethwaite joked. After reading the jokes Kendrick took to Twitter admitting “these replies have been my entertainment for the last two days”. “Thank you all for regaling me with the true tales of this man’s heroism,” Kendrick added.
  21. A basic T-shirt, check. Torn jeans, check. Quirky sneakers, check. If there's one word that can sum this up, it is casual. No wardrobe is complete without these staple pieces. They are a must-have and you can never go wrong as you team them together. Leave it to B-town celebrities and you would always learn a lesson or two on how to masterfully ace the casual statement pieces. Sartorially speaking, if there's one actor who has actually made it possible, it has to be Varun Dhawan. He has a knack for casual statement pieces and knows how to add that perfect street style edge and turn heads while he is at it. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani He is currently promoting his upcoming movie Street Dancer 3D with Nora Fatehi and Shraddha Kapoor. We have had our eyes on his promotion looks and this time around, he was seen in a very laid-back, super chill outfit. He showed us some clear hacks on how to dress down impeccably with a pair of torn jeans and platform sneakers. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani A quick look at his recent fashion experiment and you would see how relatable his style is. The minimally distressed jeans coupled with a baby pink T-shirt looks easy-going and has a relaxed vibe to it. The way he has incorporated such a zany pair of sneakers makes this look even more drool-worthy. The striking hue further added a quirk element to it and funked it up even more. We have seen elite Bollywood stars wearing highly tattered jeans but the way Varun has decked up in a minimally distressed version proves that you don't need to go all out with your jeans. © Viral Bhayani Coming to footwear, chunky trainers have definitely shattered many trends but making them workable with your everyday style can be a challenge. The platform sneakers that Varun is wearing stresses on how all of us can get inspired and add it to our shoe-drobe too due to their versatility and comfort factor. This pair, in particular, has an innovative silhouette that has earned the title of coolest sneakers of 2019. You slayed it, Varun and we cannot wait to take more style lessons from you.

  24. While the Indian cricket team ended the decade with a historic series win against the West Indies in Cuttack, their fans already have something special to look forward to as the calendar turns to January 2020. Three months ago, the national team's star bowler, Jasprit Bumrah experienced a stress fracture in his lower back ahead of the Freedom Series for Gandhi-Mandela Trophy against South Africa. Nonetheless, the cricketer went out with a bang, scalping seven wickets in the second Test match against a hosting West Indies team whilst helping his side get the win ahead of being diagnosed with the injury. Fair bit happened on day two in Jamaica - Ishant Sharma's maiden Test fifty, Jason Holder's five and Hanuma Vihari's 100. Oh, and that bloke Bumrah with a hat-trick and six of the seven West Indies wickets... #WIvIND https://t.co/Er59hh1Nxc pic.twitter.com/Moxz3e7PE1 — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) August 31, 2019 While Bumrah did a standup job in letting the fans know about his road to recovery, there was some tension in the air, especially due to the fact that stress fractures have proven to be devastating for cricketers in the past; just ask England's James Anderson and Australia's James Pattinson and they will cry their eyes out to you.

One, a healthy Bumrah can pick up his career right from where he left it three months ago and two, India desperately needed his excellence to be a genuinely good bowling attack once again. India's T20 squad against Sri Lanka: Virat Kohli (Capt), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer,Manish Pandey, Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav,Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit Bumrah, Washington Sundar#INDvSL — BCCI (@BCCI) December 23, 2019 India's ODI squad against Australia: Virat Kohli (Capt),Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul,Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Rishabh Pant (wk, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal,Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini,Jasprit Bumrah,Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Shami. — BCCI (@BCCI) December 23, 2019 Even though Deepak Chahar was doing 'OK' with the new ball, he was getting slammed out of the park in the death overs. His swings worked only so much and made him go out of variations once a set batsmen got a good read on him. On the other hand, Mohammed Shami justifiably couldn't shoulder the responsibility single-handedly, especially when odd weather conditions made it difficult for the spinners to work their magic. © Reuters With Hardik Pandya's unavailability and the unfortunate two-month sit-out for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, thanks to the National Cricket Academy's negligence, the situation begged for Bumrah to rise from the ashes. Even though the Windies failed to make the most out of the situation (and they nearly did), replacing Chahar with Bumrah would have ensured a whitewash series win against the Carribeans in both white-ball formats of the game. This was simply because of Bumrah's ability to act as an enforcer and provide results (or at least prevent bad results) at any moment of the bowling attack. It is this unique quality of his that made him the nuclear weapon for skipper Virat Kohli during the ICC World Cup 2019. © Reuters From trapping South African batsmen Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock in the early overs of India's tournament opener to deeming the lower order of the Sri Lankan batting order useless, and even acting as damage control during the New Zealand contest in a losing effort, Bumrah was clearly the pillar Indian bowling massively depended on. Why is it that you don't see batsmen 'experiment' with their shots when it is Bumrah on the other side of the pitch? Miss the ball for a millisecond and you give away your wicket to one of his darting yorkers, swing the bat in the air carelessly off one of his bouncers and there is a fielder ready to dismiss you. Seldom does this freak of a pacer gives away extras and easy full-tosses are hard to come by. © Reuters Such is the terror of Bumrah, a man who doesn't look more intimidating than a Teletubby. And it is this terror that Virat Kohli's India thrived on for the better half of 2019. What does the new year and the new decade have in store for Bumrah, we are not sure. All we know is, the Men in Blue are exponentially better when "Boom Boom Bumrah" is there to back them up. View the full article
  25. It has been less than a week since Dabangg 3 released and the movie is well on its way towards touching the Rs.100 crore mark. Say what you want about the movie, the story or even the job the actors have done in the film, one thing that ensures any Salman Khan starrer film to be a hit is simply his presence. The mega-star that the 53-year-old has become has a lot to do with the kind of trendsetter he has always been. One of the biggest, most revolutionary trends that he got to Bollywood was the idea of leading heroes with great bodies. © GS Productions Sure, there is a massive difference between the actor's physique in Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya and Dabangg 3. He was a lot leaner and had a better muscle definition as compared to now but the fact that he has kept his workout regimen so strict is impressive in itself. View this post on Instagram Work in progress... A post shared by Chulbul Pandey (@beingsalmankhan) on Jul 27, 2019 at 1:03am PDT But how does he do it? We got in touch with Rakesh Udiyar, a renowned celebrity fitness expert who has been training the actor for more than 10 years to know more about Salman's workout plan and diet. Here's what he had to say: “He (Salman Khan) always takes a clean diet and is very particular about his workouts. Rarely has he lived in Mumbai and missed exercising. This kind of dedication has kept him for so many years. “Even when Salman is not preparing for any movie, his four-pack abs are visible on any given day because of his everyday routine. “During Tiger Zinda Hai, it was rumored that his abs were made from VFX. But this is completely wrong. A person who is so dedicated to diet and workouts, abs come naturally to him.

He continuously takes part in a lot of health-related discussions. “For Dabangg 3, I had to make a lot of changes to his workout routine. For the look of this movie, I prepared his workout and diet plan which he followed quite well. You can find the result of this plan by looking at his impressive physique in the movie.

Regardless of if Salman Khan is at home or away on a shoot, there is a certain diet-plan he strictly follows. â Egg whites and oats in the morning â For snacks, he carries some dry fruits and a fruit â Biryani, Fish / Chicken and Salad for lunch â Some more dry fruits and a fruit as an evening snack â Fish, brown rice and some green salad for dinner. “Salman always prefers home-made food. Even on the shoot, he loves to take food made by his mother,” Udiyar says. What Does Salman's Workout Routine Look Like? “The credit for Salman's fitness goes to his honesty and discipline,” says the trainer. “Working on his body for over 30 years, he has made it a priority to never skip working out even for a day. If he is unable to workout during the day because of work, he covers for it late at night.

Instead, I replaced it with kickboxing, stretching, volume training, body weight training etc. “Salman spends about 40-45 minutes doing cardio on an empty stomach in the morning. After this, he stretches and works on smaller muscles. “One hour after lunch, he performs slow cardio or simple body weight workouts such as, pushups, simple squats, lunges .

A post shared by Chulbul Pandey (@beingsalmankhan) on Jun 18, 2019 at 12:18pm PDT “In the evening, he focuses on bigger muscles and areas such as back, chest and legs. At night he goes on a 40-minute walk," the trainer said. While Udiyar understands that Salman Khan's fans idolise his body and wish to look like him, he says “Salman Bhai's body is 30 years of hard work. Dedication is necessary if you want his kind of body. There is no shortcut to fitness.” “Avoid ego lifting in the gym so that you can train yourself for a long time. If you see someone doing heavy lifts and you try to do the same in the beginning, you may get hurt. “Diet is very important for any transformation. Always go for a well-balanced diet and stay fit by working out. “Finally, both cardio and weight-training play have important roles in weight loss. For this, train one body part daily and do not apply more than 18-20 sets," he added. NOTE: Check out the original article on MensXP Hindi, here View the full article
