  1. Before you start reading this article, please make sure you have watched season 8 episode 3 of 'Game of Thrones', for this one is full of spoilers, and surprises. Now that it's out of the way, we can get to the point. The Night King is dead. And who killed him? The one and only ninja assassin, slayer of entire houses, stabby little girl (not so little anymore after her 'interaction' with Gendry) Arya freakin' Stark. (c) Hotstar It came as a shock to everyone, but in hindsight, there was one scene that almost tried to tell us, point by point, that this is what is going to happen. The scene we are referring to is the much awaited reunion scene featuring Jon and Arya. Take a look at it here once more, before we delve deeper into discussion. Number 1: Arya sneaks up behind Jon Snow. Jon didn't so much as hear her come, to the point that that's how they start their conversation. He asks her: "How did you sneak up on me?". If that's not proof enough that Arya Stark perhaps is the biggest sneakmaster warrior there ever was, we don't know what is. (c) Hotstar Number 2: Arya doesn't answer the question. Instead, she asks: "How did you survive a knife through the heart?", to which Jon truthfully responds, "I didn't." We now know that Arya probably was just confirming whether it's possible to survive a knife through the heart. This is exactly what she did to the Night King, snuck up on him, and pushed her dagger through. (c) Hotstar Number 3: This is the exact location where she kills the Night King. The very same place. Has she been practicing? She did successfully manage to sneak up on Jon, who is, by the way, one of the best fighters in Westeros. The Night King is perhaps a better fighter, with all his magic, but he clearly couldn't escape Arya's crazy skills that she painstakingly obtained in Braavos while training under the Faceless Man. (c) Hotstar Guess they have been trying to tell us all along. Anyway, take a bow, Arya Stark!
  2. The character of Bhallaldeva is perhaps the only 'villain' ever, that got more attention than the 'hero' himself. The reason? The sheer charisma of the actor who played it. Rana Daggubati has it all - women want him, men want to be like him, kids idolize him. And why not? The man, apart from being an actor worth his salt, is quite the looker, add to that his raw charisma and inimitable beard game - and we get 'the full package'. His style game is super strong as well, and fashion designers and stylists know it. With a height of almost 6'3", he has slayed it on the runway multiple times. Here are some of those instances. 1. Can you picture anything else but this, when someone says 'sophisticated royal elegance'? © BCCL 2. We're digging the sheer kurta and scarf, along with the voluminous dhoti. © BCCL 3. What's royalty if not a bit extra? © BCCL 4. Who else can make such a simple, relaxed ensemble look this fancy? © BCCL 5. If this doesn't prove that men can wear colours while not compromising on their masculinity (not that it matters), nothing else will. © BCCL 6. He looks as tall as those designer sketches! © BCCL 7. We're all for the Lord Krishna vibe going on in here. © BCCL 8. He looks like he was born for the ramp. © BCCL Bravo, Rana!
  3. Tom Holland has done it again! And, if your mind didn't automatically go to giving spoilers right now, I'm sorry but you're not a true Marvel fan. Tom, along with Mark Ruffalo, are truly the best and the worst because of their tendency to give out spoilers. It's hilarious and even they know how much they screw up. Mark has reached a point where he's the one joking about it and was even fake fired by the Russo Brothers. And well, Tom is just Tom. View this post on Instagram Lmao same. #CommentsByCelebs A post shared by Comments By Celebs (@commentsbycelebs) on Jan 18, 2019 at 6:43pm PST But unfortunately, this is not the kind of spoiler he's given this time. Apparently, an old interview of him promoting 'Avengers: Infinity War' with Benedict Cumberbatch has resurfaced for a very important reason, as it basically confirmed a theory everyone already knew about. We knew that quantum realm will play an important part in the upcoming final Avengers movie, what with Scott Lang stuck there alone at the end of 'Ant Man And The Wasp' and then somehow appearing in the first trailer of 'Endgame', but obviously, Marvel will never confirm it. But thankfully, Tom did, and he did it before even 'Infinity War' released. Coming back to the interview and the unassuming spoiler, when both the actors were asked that out of the two, who flubbed the most lines, Benedryl Cucumber named himself but was Tom was quick to defend him. Tom said, “He has the most difficult lines, though. He has to talk about so much Quantum Realm... stuff. I just have to talk about, 'Yeah man, that's awesome!' So mine's easy, but his is all so difficult.” Well, back then a lot of people might have thought that it was an 'Infinity War' spoiler, but now we know Doctor Strange didn't mention quantum realm even once in that movie. This can only mean one thing, Doctor Strange is obviously coming back and he could also be the one to save Ant Man. Moreover, it seems like the quantum realm is the answer to all of the OG Avengers' problems and it will help undo Thanos' snap, and all the destruction it caused, and bring back all the 'dusted' characters. I can't stress this enough, but honestly, April 27th cannot come soon enough.
  4. In the era where the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were leaving everyone behind, Novak Djokovic undoubtedly stepped up his game to give the proven stars a run for their money and stake claim as one of the modern-day greats. His consistent performances on the big stage also helped him forge a partnership with Nadal and Federer as tennis' 'Big Three'. But, apart from running past opponents with his aggressive baseline play, the Serbian star has also struck a chord with tennis fans with his sense of humour. Staying true to his nickname 'Djoker', the 31-year-old continues to be an exciting prospect for his antics both on and off the field. © Reuters His pun and wit were once again in full display during a media interaction following his Australian Open triumph over Nadal in the final. Justifying his World No. 1 ranking, Djokovic proved to be too good for his Spanish counterpart, securing a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 win in the all-important clash at the Rod Laver Arena. After winning his 15th Grand Slam title, a joyous Djokovic sent the press into hysterics by imitating an Italian journalist during the post-match media interaction. The Italian journalist was curious about Djokovic's thoughts on his record Australian Open haul. But, before the poor journo could complete his question, the Serbian interrupted midway to pull off a hilarious Italian accent while mocking him. .@DjokerNole sent the press into hysterics ð¤£#AusOpen pic.twitter.com/7blHxlDfHM — #AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 27, 2019 “Novak, congratulations. Seven Australian Opens, 15 Grand Slams...,” the Italian reporter began. Not too bad (with an Italian accent),” replied Djokovic as the press room burst into laughter. The reporter quickly said: “Cannot complain.” Djokovic, with a wry smile, apologised saying, “Sorry but you're always like 'Okay, man, yeah (Italian accent)'.” What a charming Champion ! !we love DJOKO ! !! — philomene pierre eti (@rosecarmelpierr) January 27, 2019 While his antics left everyone in splits, Djokovic's latest triumph is no joke. After beating Nadal in the final, Djokovic lifted his seventh Australian Open title, going clear of Federer and the legendary Roy Emerson in the list of most title wins in Melbourne Park. He also has a 100 per cent record in Australian Open final and a defeat-less streak in the tournament's history as a world no. 1. Too funny! He is a loveable character! ð — Lizzie K (@lizkoroneos) January 27, 2019 When it comes to Grand Slam titles, Djokovic, following his Australian Open win, now has 15 to his name as he overhauled tennis legend Pete Sampras in the all-time list. He is now only behind Federer (20) and Nadal (17) in the all-time list of most Grand Slam title wins in men's singles.
  5. CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is the world's largest tradeshow for everything electronics and will be starting this week in Las Vegas. All the latest products and technologies are unveiled at the event, and due to the exponentially huge number of companies trying to make a mark, we often see them take a dig at one another. This year, Apple has a strong message for Google, Amazon and a plethora of other companies who utilize user data for advertisements. “What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone,” says a billboard facing the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is right outside CES 2019, and while Google and other companies actively participate at the tradeshow, Apple has always kept a distance. © Twitter / Chris Velazco Apple has also mentioned the link to its privacy website where users can better understand the data policies of iPhones. Even though the company has no official affiliation with the industry event, it sure wants to send across a strong message. The timing is even more interesting because Apple has revised its revenue forecast due to lower than expected sales of the iPhone. The statement is similar to the popular statement, "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." Also, while Google's ads are filled with colours, Apple has opted for a black and white only palette, indirectly meaning it's damn serious. © Twitter / LVMonorail As far as technicalities are concerned, Apple isn't wrong with the ad. Even though iPhone's have suffered some really embarrassing bugs in the last few years, privacy is one point that always remains unhindered. iOS is crystal clear about these privacy norms and doesn't let any app or service access your data without explicit permission. Even if we ignore third-party services, Apple never "processes" your usage data to target ads. On the other hand, Google is definitively an "advertising" company and relies on metadata to feed your phone with relevant ads. Amazon too had a number of dubious moments last year with the latest case being-- Amazon sharing 1,700 Alexa recordings of a man with a stranger. © Reuters After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, even the end user is more aware of data privacy and the industry has undergone drastic changes. Companies have been trying their best to convince people their data is safe. Apple's CEO Tim Cook has also been very vocal about user privacy in recent times. He also called on tech companies to essentially to “deidentify customer data or not to collect it in the first place.” While the Apple vs Google fight will go on indefinitely, these snarky ads are surely very entertaining for us.
  6. Christmas is celebrated globally and pretty much marks the end of the year. Everyone is in a relaxed mood, schedules are filled with holidays and everyone just wants to relax. Seems like the holiday season now extends to "artificial" beings as well. Amazon's Echo smart speakers went down across the network on Christmas Day, with thousands of people reporting that the company's artificial intelligence assistant Alexa appeared to have gone on a festive break. © Amazon Amazon recently reported that it had sold "tens of millions" of the Echo range of smart speakers powered by the company's AI assistant Alexa. It's simple to conclude, a lot of people opened their presents in the morning, fired up the speaker and asked it way too many questions. It's natural for all of us to play around a maximum time when the gadget is new, and this flood of new users downed the servers. Thanks to the tens of thousands, or maybe even millions of commands coming in from all over the globe, the system just couldn't handle it. Even Alexa had it with humans and decided to be Absent Without Leave (AWOL), and I'm sure HR folks at Amazon weren't very excited about it. Oh dear. Red ring of death #alexa pic.twitter.com/aPqlE6LUX5 — Angus Fox ð´ó §ó ¢ó ³ó £ó ´ó ¿ (@nuxnix) December 25, 2018 Multilingual Alexa, who has more than 70,000 different skills, told over 100 million jokes in 2018, but people were less than impressed with her Christmas day stunt. Rather than give the desired response, when the system crashed at about 10 am, Alexa said: "Sorry, I'm having trouble understanding you right now." Though, the system was slowly back on track by the end of the afternoon. Replying to a query on Twitter, Amazon said they were aware of the issue and a technical team would resolve it within 12-24 hours. © Outage(dot) report The Amazon Echo speaker has a ring on the top, it usually is blue in colour, but turned red on Christmas Day. This obviously, wasn't planned to match along with the festival, but a sign that Alexa is unable to connect with the server successfully. The system wasn't globally down as many users in the U.S.A reported no issues while the most affected seem to be UK and Italy. The Amazon Echo Dot was Amazon's most popular gift in the lead up to the holidays.
  7. “MenXP, are you using internet explorer?” “Admin, the trailer came out like 10 days ago.” “Admin, keep up, we already know everything, you're late.” Before anyone comments anything like this, I'm saying sorry, yes everyone did the story as soon as the trailer comes out and not 11 days late like us, but at least better late than never. Thank you. The trailer is tragic, obviously, but it's still brilliant. I mean Marvel finally gave us the trailer but they made the trailer in such a way that you still can't figure out exactly what's happening. This has given rise to plenty of fan theories already and if you want to read about some of those, we'll have you covered, just check MensXP in the next few days for those. Coming back to the trailer, here are some things that stood out for me after watching (and rewatching, and rewatching, and rewatching…) the trailer and the things that might have been missed by some people when they watched the trailer. 1. The A in the title reveal 'reassembling' The title reveal in the trailer is pretty cool, to say the least, and it might be giving us a hint because Marvel doesn't do anything randomly, it's all calculated. Okay, just look at the A coming together, or rather reassembling, so it could be pointing to all the characters who turned to dust coming back together. Basically, the trailer might be telling us for sure that everyone will come back and honestly, that's the kind of positivity I need in my life. 2. Whose hand is that? The trailer sets it up to look like it's Nebula's hand on Tony Stark's shoulder but we all know Nebula's hand doesn't look like that and we all also know how misleading Marvel trailers can actually be. Well, my guess is that it's Captain Marvel there to save Tony since she's going to play a huge role in the movie. 3. Shuri also turned to dust in Infinity War It's kind of a blink and you miss it moment but when Bruce Banner is looking at Scott Lang's picture in the missing people database, you can see a slide with Shuri's face which quickly turns to Peter Parker. This kind of contradicts the assumptions people made about how Tony was getting help from Shuri because of some set pictures that showed Tony somewhere that looked like Wakanda. 4. Whose hand is it? Part two Seeing Peggy Carter's picture in the trailer was unexpected to say the least and again the trailer sets it up to look like Steve is actually holding that. But come on, it's not Steve's hand but rather a woman's. Could it be Natasha holding it? Is it foreshadowing Cap's death? 5. 'Endgame' has been mentioned not once but twice before 'Avengers: Infinity War' is still fresh in everyone's mind and so are Dr. Strange's words foreshadowing the title of this movie - “We're in the end game now.” But, it has been referenced in the Avengers movie preceding Infinity War as well. Yep, Tony said the line “That up there, that's the endgame” in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.
  8. Even though the gentlemen's game started off with a basic all-white outfit in the field to begin with, glamour has finally caught up with the sport, and now it's perhaps more fashionable than any other sport. Indian cricketers, at the moment, are giving Bollywood actors a run for their money when it comes to being stylish, and brands are using that to their benefit, rightfully so. 2018 has witnessed a plethora of such instances, because cricketers in India now are more fashionable than ever. Here, we have compiled a list of 6 Indian cricketers who hit some huge fashion boundaries throughout the year. 1. Virat Kohli Virat Kohli got married last year, and his wedding outfit legit haunted Ranveer Singh - even after a year. If that doesn't say a lot about the man and his fashion sense, we don't know what else does. Virat's fashion game is as strong as his prowess on the field, and he has been proving it time and time again. © Instagram/viratkohli © Times Now © Instagram/viratkohli © Manyavar 2. Hardik Pandya Hardik Pandya is the poster boy of all things 'bling' in Indian cricket, and he clearly intends to take things far. Be it his statement outfits or funky jewellery, Hardik sure knows how to play it cool. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 © Instagram/hardikpandya93 © Instagram/hardikpandya93 © Instagram/hardikpandya93 3. KL Rahul When it comes to new talent in the Indian cricket team, KL Rahul is among the most promising faces. His fashion sense is also as intense as his boundaries on the field. © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP 4. Manish Pandey Manish Pandey is one of the most promising faces when it comes to potential in terms of being a kickass middle-order batsman. His style game is also as promising. © Instagram/manishpandeyinsta © Instagram/manishpandeyinsta © Instagram/manishpandeyinsta © Instagram/manishpandeyinsta 5. Shikhar Dhawan Shikhar Dhawan's raw, edgy style statement is something every man looks forward to emulating in their daily lives. © Instagram/shikhardofficial © Instagram/shikhardofficial © Instagram/shikhardofficial © Instagram/shikhardofficial 6. MS Dhoni Captain Cool is not one to experiment a lot with his aesthetic, but his natural disposition in terms of classic style is something that works every time. © Instagram/mahi7781 © Instagram/mahi7781 © Instagram/mahi7781
  9. Remember waking up on a Saturday morning, loving that you didn't have to go to school, heading straight to the TV, putting on your console and playing your favourite game? Yeah, that's what the weekends looked like when we were kids. Wasn't it fun? Way better than the present day when all we have to look forward to on the weekend is paying electricity bills and getting the flush repaired. Yes, we're all at an age where nostalgia is hitting us hard at every single turn, so today, let's look back at 5 video games we never got enough of as kids: Contra There's no way we're ever forgetting this game. From the cool music to the endless action, it was pretty much the best shooting game of its generation. I'm yet to meet anyone, gamer or non-gamer, who hasn't heard of Contra. As a kid, it was the ultimate video game for me. Shooting games couldn't possibly get any better, right? Boy, was I wrong! Still, you know how they say you never forget your first. Yeah, that! Super Mario Bros. There have been tons of different versions of Mario but the original will always be one of our favourites. No, we're talking about Mario's first appearance (Donkey Kong), we're talking about the game the entire family can enjoy. I remember my brother and my cousins patiently waiting for their turn to play. Spare a thought for Luigi though, the poor guy never stood a chance back then. Road Rash This list wouldn't be complete without paying homage to the first co-op video game in Indian history. No, Road Rash wasn't actually a co-op game, but all of us remember controlling the bike while our younger siblings got to kick anyone who came close to us. If that's not teamwork I don't know what is. I have some fond memories of this one. Midtown Madness Road Rash was our first tryst with racing games, but Midtown Madness was a cut above in more ways than one. We had so many vehicles to choose from, so many different maps. It was a dream to play. It was also my first introduction to the roadster. Boy that car could move. Pac-Man We end this list with possibly one of the most iconic games of the millennium, Pac-Man. The concept was simple, fun and the music just made it so much more enjoyable. It also taught us that eating fruit would scare ghosts away. Now that's top-notch life advice, right? We will never forget any of these video games no matter how many years go by. But, if you're looking for a, sort of, mini-jolt of nostalgia, check out 'Ralph Breaks The Internet.' It is a more than apt successor to the first movie and nostalgia is just one of the reasons why you should check it out.
  10. Ever since its launch on Amazon Prime Video on November 16, 'Mirzapur' has been the talk of the town for reasons even we cannot deny. From a stellar cast to sharp dialogues and a thrilling story line, this web series has our stamp of approval for a binge-worthy watch during a lazy weekend. While the web series revolve around Pankaj Tripathi, Divyenndu Sharma, Vikrant Massey and Ali Fazal's characters, we couldn't help but notice other characters that a massive contribution in shaping the plot of the show. 1. Kulbhushan Kharbanda As Bauji Okay, we got to be honest here! We have been eagerly waiting to see Kulbhushan Kharbanda on our screens for quite sometime and this comeback of his was long due. His role as bauji in 'Mirzapur' may be short albeit his performance is beyond perfection. The veteran actor plays Akhandanand's father in the show. Bauji is an ex-con and despite being wheelchair-bound plots a series of underhand dealings and plans to tackle various problems. Besides, Kharbanda's one-liners are a treat to listen if you are into dark, dry humour. 2. Amit Sial As Ram Sharan Maurya Amit Sial plays IPS RS Maurya in Mirzapur; a character that will bring you some hope amidst all that bloodthirsty power struggle and violence. Maurya saab is bold, valiant, righteous and unapologetic. Portrayed as one of the few good guys in the series, he is determined to put an end to the crimes that happen in Mirzapur. 3. Sheeba Chaddha As Vasudha Pandit Sheeba Chaddha is a terrific actor and her role in 'Mirzapur' adds yet another feather in her hat. She plays Vasudha Pandit, wife of Ramkant Pandit played by Rajesh Tailang. She is a strong woman and a stronger woman who takes pride in her sons' newfound money and status and she doesn't shy away from flaunting it. 4. Subhrajyoti Barat As Rati Shankar Shukla Subrajyoti Barat's character as Rati Shankar Shukla in 'Mirzapur' is a small one yet it sets the tone for the overall story line. Rati Shankar is the crime lord of Jaunpur and a flashback towards the start of the series reveals a deadly rivalry between Kaleen Bhaiya (played by Pankaj Tripathi) and him that marks the trigger point for the endless murders, betrayals and illegal weapon trade in Mirzapur. 5. Harshita Gaur As Dimpy Pandit The internet can't seem to get enough of Harshita Gaur's character Dimpy Pandit in Mirzapur and we get it why. She is Guddu's (played by Ali Fazal) and Bablu's (played by Vikrant Massey) sister and at first shown as extremely docile. But as the story progresses, she grows into a stronger character who fights for her own individuality. Directed by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna, the series is a gangster drama set in the little-known lawless town of Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh. The town is functions around the whims and fancies of underworld boss Akhandanand Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya. He is feared and respected by his people but despite his reputation, he has his own vulnerable point - his son, Munna who cannot wait to inherit his father's legacy. Sounds interesting, right? Go ahead and watch 'Mirzapur' on Amazon Prime Video. Trust us, you'll get hooked!
  11. Just when people thought that Virushka was the wedding phenomenon of the decade, out came DeepVeer, all guns and missiles blazing, to prove the world wrong. They not only succeeded, they made the world wait 2 full days to take a look at the proof. Finally, the pictures came out, and the country is in a state of euphoria. We all were waiting with bated breath to see what Ranveer Singh - the poster boy of path-breaking fashion in Bollywood - will be wearing on the most important day of his life, and boy, did he deliver and how. It was obvious that comparisons will be made to the Virushka phenomenon, because of a number of reasons. One, the glamour quotient of both the couples are incredible, and two, both were styled by the wedding outfit virtuoso - Sabyasachi Mukherjee. (c) PTI (c) Instagram/deepikapadukone Looking at the pictures, however, it became clear that Ranveer won this match, fair and square. The winning sixer? A piece of jewellery he wore for his Sindhi wedding, with a gorgeously, intricately embroidered red and gold sherwani. (c) instagram/deepikapadukone Ranveer wore a piece of signature Sabyasachi heritage jewellery - a huge falcon pendant made of uncut diamonds and emeralds. The pendent was not a piece in itself, but a part of the elaborate diamond-encrusted neckpiece, that took the place of pride, over his strings of rich maroon garnets. (c) instagram/deepikapadukone Just look at that beauty! Now, compared to that, Virat had no jewellery on, at least conspicuously so (though he had a turban brooch). (c) PTI Not that it's a competition, but Ranveer certainly is breaking barriers when it comes to more inclusive choices in terms of men's fashion. Take a bow, Baba!
  12. Disclaimer: The author or MensXP does not promote the usage of performance-enhancing drugs or androgenic anabolic steroids. If you choose to do so, it is purely your choice. Steroid usage in the recent times has become as normal as people taking protein shakes post workout. Like it was/is pretty normal to have a shake of whey if you go to the gym, the same holds true for anabolic steroids. Boys, in their teenage, are pinning needles to their butts just to look a certain way and think that it will instantly make them buff up and become muscular. But does that always happen? Let's find out. Guys these days, looking at their #fitspiration bros on Instagram, have started taking steroids even before learning how to squat or bench correctly. And boys tend to make this assumption that they are definitely going to get huge and look jacked just because they are taking steroids. There are two components that play a role in how well you may look if you start taking steroids 1. Your natural muscle building genetic potential. 2. Your response to anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS). Now, there are guys who may be skinny fat or be fat normally without training whereas there would be some who look lean and have abs without any training as well. This also comes down to lifestyle choices and factors. Taking the above two considerations and doing permutations and combinations, we get four scenarios. Let's look into all of them. © YouTube 1. You have a great muscle building genetic potential and your response to anabolic steroids is great. If this is the case, you might as well go on and end up winning Mr. Olympia and bag a trophy for yourself. These are the hyper-responders to both training and AAS which will lead to a very strong synergetic effect and make you gain mass like a monster. 2. You have a great muscle building genetic potential and your response to anabolic steroids is poor. This is a very real possibility and there would be individuals who respond magically to training alone, they just blow up on touching the weights. But when they go the dark side, they do not have much growth or a very negligible response to AAS, if any. For them, taking AAS does not provide any benefit in terms of muscle growth. 3. You have a poor muscle building genetic potential and your response to anabolic steroids is great. These are those hard workers in the gym who do not show any impressive changes in their physiques irrespective of how many hours of dedicated work they put into training, having a great diet, etc. But once they go to the dark side, they have that magical overnight muscle building transformation that Captain America had in the sleeping pod. They magically get buff and huge. © YouTube 4. You have a poor muscle building genetic potential and your response to anabolic steroids is poor. The permanently doomed individuals as I'd like to call them. No matter what they do, no matter how many drugs they take, they will still look like they do not lift at all. So, if you are someone who really wants to go the dark side and be enhanced, it is still better to take a decision after getting 8 to 10 years of serious training and nutrition under the belt.

  13. 'Bigg Boss 12' has started with a bang and we can't get enough of the delicious supply of drama. Like it or not, BB is the talk of the town and almost everyone around us is definitely talking about who is doing what inside the House. It's only been a couple of days and Anup Jalota, Jasleen Matharu and former Indian cricketer Sreesanth are making headlines. While Anup and Jasleen are the talk of the town for their 'relationship', Sreesanth is getting into heated arguments, as expected. He simply can't seem to have people messing around him and recently, he ended up having an argument with commoner Somi Khan. Things got so out of control, that they started attacking each other's upbringing, to make matters worse. View this post on Instagram Will this be @sreesanthnair36's last night in the #BB12 house? Janne ke liye dekhiye #BiggBoss12 tonight at 9 PM! @iamappyfizz @oppomobileindia @thegarnierman @letsdroom A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 18, 2018 at 11:53pm PDT Well, we all know how Sreesanth can get quite aggressive and true to form, the former Indian cricketer lost his cool and threatened to leave Salman Khan's show if this is how things were to continue in the House. However, if this is what he plans to do, his decision will cost him a lot more money than he thinks. The player will lose around Rs 50 lakh if he quits the show mid-way. As he is a celebrity contestant, the contract comes with a hefty clause. View this post on Instagram Socha tha karenge jodiyon ko all-out, but @sreesanthnair36 ne task se kiya walk out. BB conference mein aaj raat hoga ek naya dhamaka! Make sure you tune in at 9 PM. #BiggBoss12 #BB12 A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 18, 2018 at 2:02am PDT This isn't the first time he has done something like this. Previously, he had walked out of another reality show 'Jhalak Dhikla Jaa' after he got into a heated argument with the judging panel consisting of Madhuri Dixit, Remo D'Souza and Karan Johar, when they gave him their feedback about the flaws in his performance. View this post on Instagram He's definitely got both the swag and style! Catch cricketer @sreesanthnair36's mind-blowing entry only on #BB12 . @BeingSalmanKhan #BiggBoss12 A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 16, 2018 at 10:49am PDT Talking about his reaction he told PTI, “The outburst was more because of the disappointment than anger, as I was doing extremely well on the show during the past six weeks. I think I just had a bad day. It was the wrong timing and wrong choice of song.” Well, it will be interesting to see if Sree is willing to pay the massive amount in exchange for his freedom, or if he finds a way to survive in the House.
  14. We already know how Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are all kinds of goals. Two good looking and talented people so in love, who wouldn't want that? But, the most enviable thing about both of them is their ability to flawlessly troll each other. I'm sure everyone remembers their hilarious birthday posts for each other which, once and for all, set the bar high for anyone wishing anyone online.

A few days ago, he posted a picture of an advertisement of his gin company with his picture on the side of a truck, with a funny caption, of course.

Obviously very excited for Ryan, like every supportive wife, Blake commented “Who needs a minivan?! I'm driving this from now on. Subtle, gorgeous, and OHMYGAWDYOUREHUGE.” Wow, I never thought I would see Blake talking about Ryan's size so publicly.

  15. Can you even imagine Bollywood without Shah Rukh Khan? The man is indeed an essential part of the industry and owns the hearts of millions. But have you ever wondered who gave King Khan the initial support he needed to become the man he is today? “Friday Night: Me u and my leather jacket...” Finally a chilly enough day to wear my jacket & yeah 60's kinda hairstyle. This is the most fashionable I can get...! A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on May 18, 2018 at 2:08pm PDT We are familiar with the story of how he struggled initially in the industry, but there was someone who played an essential part in transforming him into the King of Bollywood, and we finally know who it is. SRK recently made an appearance on the final episode of Salman Khan's show 'Dus Ka Dum' and threw light on an unknown chapter from his life. Rani Mukherjee was also a part of the episode and the three stars walked down the memory lanes of their 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' days, making us nostalgic as well. © Twitter Whenever SRK and Salman are together, you can't expect it to be anything less than a fun-filled episode. There is something about their dosti that makes us admire Karan-Arjun even more. However, SRK isn't close just to Salman, as he also shares a special bond with his family. In the episode, SRK dedicated his success and fame to Salman Khan's father Salim Khan. “The first time I came to Mumbai as a struggling actor, I had my meals at Salman's place where Salim Khan Ji supported me a lot. It is because of them I have become 'Shah Rukh Khan'. I have come on the show only because of Salman and I will go wherever he tells me to go.” IANS quoted him as saying. © Twitter A beautiful tale indeed! © RedChillies On the work front, SRK is gearing up for Anand L Rai's 'Zero', in which Salman has a cameo. We can't wait for the movie to release and see SRK in a never-seen-before avatar.
  16. Compelling evidence has emerged suggesting that a huge reservoir of liquid water has been found under the ice, near the South Pole on Mars. The European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter captured radar measurements and spotted a 20 kilometer-wide stretch of water in the region, known as Planum Australe. © Nasa It's the first time in history, that scientists have identified a stable body of water on Mars and they suggest that there's a good chance microbial life may have existed thanks to this lake. The planet's climate has been called inhabitable due to its thin atmosphere, which resulted in leaving most of the water locked up in ice. Scientists have been searching for signs of present-day water on Mars, but their search has often resulted in empty or ambiguous findings. This latest discovery was possible, because researchers in Italy analysed three years of data by something called the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (Marsis). "It's probably not a very large lake," said Prof Roberto Orosei from the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics, who led the study. Marsis was not able to identify the thickness of the layer of water, but research suggests that it is a minimum of one meter. © Wikipedia Commons "This really qualifies this as a body of water. A lake, not some kind of meltwater filling some space between rock and ice, as happens in certain glaciers on Earth," Prof Orosei added. Marsis is a form of a radar instrument, that examines the surface and subsurface of a planet by sending out signals. The instrument then examines what is bounced back and in this case, a white line at the top of the radar suggested the beginning of the South Polar Layered Deposit. © Nasa As of now, there is no certainty whether the discovered lake is ideal for life, however, the liquid could potentially support microbes that have adapted salt water. The water is also far under the surface of Mars which presents a problem for life as of today. The surface is also exposed to intense radiation which basically is inhabitable for life. Having said that, experts have said that as long as there is an energy source or a source of nutrients or raw materials, life is possible on the red planet.
  17. Irrfan Khan is currently in London undergoing treatment for a neuroendocrine tumor. Time and again, the actor keeps giving a glimpse of what's happening in his life. Just some time ago, we spotted him in a stadium enjoying a match and now, the actor took to his Twitter sharing a picture of him which is all smiles. © Twitter © Twitter The picture, which has now gone viral, makes us salute the man for his brave heart and his wonderful and positive outlook towards life, which quite honestly, is a lesson for all of us. The actor changed his display image on Twitter, which made his fans go crazy after seeing him in a happy space like this after a long time. Well, we must admit it is really wonderful to see Irrfan taking life in his stride and showing us that he is a true fighter indeed. Yogi aur Jaya ko pyaar dene ke liye dhanyawad ðð A post shared by Irrfan (@irrfan) on Nov 12, 2017 at 7:09am PST Everyone is trying to be there for the actor in every way possible. In fact, some reports suggested that Shah Rukh Khan even gave his London home keys to the actor. However, Irrfan's spokesperson has dismissed the rumours. Coming back to the picture that is creating a buzz on the internet, Irrfan can be seen through a glass window with earphones on and carrying that heart-warming smile. Good news : He is smiling!!! @irrfan cancer (ððð) ki ma******t !!! A post shared by Gulshan Devaiah (@gulshandevaiah78) on Jul 15, 2018 at 8:12am PDT Last month, Irrfan even won the IIFA for Best Actor for his role in 'Hindi Medium'. The actor couldn't make it to the event, but thanking IIFA on Twitter, he wrote, "Thank you to IIFA and our audience who have been part of my journey." Thank you to @IIFA and our audience who have been part for my journey ð #IIFA2018 https://t.co/GpxSmflkLx — Irrfan (@irrfank) June 26, 2018 Some time ago, Irrfan opened up about battling cancer and told Bombay Times, "It's been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game. In this chaos, shocked, afraid and in panic, while on one of the terrifying hospital visits, I blabber to my son, 'The only thing I expect from ME is not to face this crisis in this present state. I desperately need my feet. Fear and panic should not overrule me and make me miserable'.” God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night. These are the words we dimly hear: You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final. Don't let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand #rainermariarilke A post shared by Irrfan (@irrfan) on Mar 19, 2018 at 1:27pm PDT Here is hoping he gets better soon! Sending you all our love Irrfan, can't wait to see you on the silver screen again!

  19. Smartphone companies have always been battling amongst each other to innovate or create a product that may sway customers towards them. Some companies rely on offering competitive prices while others try to innovate. Innovation as a word is thrown around by presenters and company representatives, however, only a few are able to achieve that. Apple innovated with the introduction of Face ID while other companies simply copied the concept. © BCCL Having said that, there's a new player in town that is making waves more than any other smartphone company in the world. It could be argued whether this company is innovative or not, however, there is one thing for certain — creative. BBK electronics, the holding company behind companies like Oppo, VIVO, and OnePlus have been selling smartphones like hot cakes in India and China. The company shipped 39 million devices in 2016 alone, and is now looking to disrupt the smartphone market with clever features and creativity. How the in-display sensor works on the #vivox21. Been playing with the phone for a week and I'm surprised to see this new technology already in mass production. The phone is the first of its kind and will be available to buy from 29th May #vivox21 #smartphones #gadgets A post shared by Akshay Bhalla / Høax (@editorinchief) on May 29, 2018 at 1:39am PDT BBK electronics has managed to launch an under the display fingerprint sensor on its VIVO branded smartphones while being creative to solve common smartphone problems. In the age of full view displays, smartphones companies have found it very difficult to launch a product that is truly bezel-less. Apple launched the iPhone X with a notch while others simply copied the concept. © BCCL Oppo and Vivo managed to creatively tackle this issue with a creative idea. Smartphones were unable to achieve a truly bezel-less display, simply because companies could not figure out where to stick the selfie camera. Some tried to place it at the bottom while others just adopted the notch. Both Oppo and Vivo managed to hide the selfie camera in a very creative manner. The concept isn't new, but BBK electronics managed to hide the selfie camera by using mechanical moving parts. © YouTube Both companies i.e. VIVO and OPPO have showcased the 'NEX' and 'Find X' where both smartphones were able to achieve a full view display without any bezels. This was possible because of the selfie camera that would pop-out whenever needed. The Vivo NEX and Oppo 'Find X' both have Full View displays, no visible selfie camera, no notch and a near-non-existent top bezel. That's more than what Samsung and Apple can say about their products. What's impressive is that BBK electronics has managed to mass produce these concepts in no time and is already making its way to the Indian smartphone market. Sure it can be argued that Apple's Face ID is nearly perfect and doesn't require a feature like this on iPhones, however, we can confidently say that the competition is being damn creative.
  20. Motorola finally launched its much-anticipated Moto E5 Plus in India today. The phone is currently an Amazon Exclusive and can also be grabbed offline from the Moto Hubs throughout the country. The E5 Plus is supposed to be a budget contender and lately, this segment has seen an enormous availability of options. While there is the near perfect Redmi 5 and Realme 1, the Mi Y2 focuses on the front camera while the Honor 7C is high on AI. In this crowded segment, Moto aims to stands apart by offering the largest battery that will easily last you up to two days on a single charge. © Motorola The Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play have already made their way to India and now it's time for the more pocket-friendly E series. There is still no word on when the E5 will be launching though. Coming to the specifications, it sports a 6-inch HD+ (720x1440 pixels) Max Vision IPS LCD display and aspect ratio of 18:9. Powering the phone is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor along with 2GB of RAM. It has an inbuilt storage space of 16GB which can be further expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card. © Motorola On the rear is a 12-megapixel shooter while the front houses a 5-megapixel lens with an LED flash. On the software front, the Moto E5 Plus runs Android 8.0 Oreo along with a few Moto tweaks in the UI. The front, as well as the rear camera, now support a Pro Mode in the camera app. Like we've said earlier, the Moto E5 Plus has a 5000mAh battery under the hood, and supports Motorola's TurboPower charging technology. Motorola says this means you can listen up to 200 hours of music or 20 hours of web browsing on a single charge. The fingerprint scanner is located under the Moto logo on the back. © Motorola The phone is slightly on the heavier end in terms of weight coming in at 196 grams due to the huge battery. Furthermore, it has dual SIM support and can run 4G on both the SIMS simultaneously. The phone ships with a 10W adapter for charging. It is available in Black, Flash Grey, Mineral Blue, and Fine Gold colour variants for Rs. 11,999.
