  1. As technology takes over more and more aspects of our life, it comes as no surprise that wearables are no longer limited to just smartwatches or smart wallets, but also include smart clothing that looks trendy and is a part of our day to day life. The Levi's Commuter jacket is a part of Google's Project Jacquard and is one of the first pieces of smart clothing available for consumers. The iconic bomber jacket combines Google's engineering efforts to bring wearables to the masses. © Levi's The Levi's Commuter jacket has Google's smart fabric woven in and has a bunch of smart features that can be triggered by gestures. The cuffs are touch sensitive, and with a simple brush or a swipe, you can control your music playback, turn on navigation and even respond to calls or texts without needing to touch your phone. All of this is achieved by a Snap Tag built inside the jacket, which connects to your phone with Bluetooth Low Energy and can be set up by using an app. Another feature called Always Together will ensure that you do not leave your phone or your jacket behind and will ring and flash if you happen to leave one of them behind. Considering how expensive phones have gotten, this could offer some peace of mind. © Levi's "You can use Always Together to make sure you do not leave behind your Jacquard Jacket or phone behind. When your phone and your jacket are separated, you will receive an alert on your phone. Your Snap Tag will also light up and vibrate" Google says. Talking about the jacket itself, it is a denim finish made of 100 percent cotton. The left sleeve has a pocket for easy access to the Snap Tag. It is not meant for extreme rough use as it can withstand only about 10 washes, of course, with the Snap Tag removed. The jacket costs US$ 350 which is about INR 25,000. A little pricey for something that you can do with a simple smartwatch or a fitness tracker. Though this is just among the first generation smart clothing and we expect to see more fashion labels get on board in the coming years.
  2. Qualcomm and Apple are in the middle of a legal fight that concluded to an injunction against the Cupertino giant in court. The ruling prevents Apple from importing and selling multiple iPhone models in China. Qualcomm and Apple have been in a legal battle for a while and the Chinese courts' order specifically bars the company from selling the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The iPhone XS, XS Max and XR are still going to be sold in China. It is also worthy to note that this ban only applies to China as the Chinese courts have no jurisdiction in international markets. © Reuters “Qualcomm's effort to ban our products is another desperate move by a company whose illegal practices are under investigation by regulators around the world,” Apple said in a statement. “All iPhone models remain available for our customers in China. Qualcomm is asserting three patents they had never raised before, including one which has already been invalidated. We will pursue all our legal options through the courts.” Qualcomm claims that Apple is apparently infringing Qualcomm patents which include users to adjust the size and appearance of photos. Qualcomm also claims that Apple is also infringing another patent which includes the procedure of managing apps on a smartphone. “We deeply value our relationships with customers, rarely resorting to the courts for assistance, but we also have an abiding belief in the need to protect intellectual property rights,” Qualcomm said in a statement. The company is upset that, “Apple continues to benefit from our intellectual property while refusing to compensate us.” © Twitter Apple has filed an appeal to overturn the court's decision and will fight the ban and are set to face off in court in April. Apple has been battling the San Diego based chipmaker since early 2017 and some companies in Apple's supply chain predict that the two companies will reach a settlement over Qualcomm's 5G tech.

  3. Diljit Dosanjh and Badshah just appeared together on the latest episode of 'Koffee With Karan', and we can safely conclude that this has been one of the best episodes of the season. While we saw the lighthearted camaraderie between the rockstars, we also saw the savage competition between them when it came to the game rounds. © Hotstar One of the highlights of the episode was the fashion quiz, which we have never seen on KWK before. Honestly, we could tell that this episode had to do a lot with fashion as soon as Karan Johar started telling us about how he is absolutely committed to his airport looks, and that they are a big deal for him. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 7:34am PST Karan packed a suitcase full of his personal clothes (a Louis Vuitton suitcase, of course, because nothing else will do), and pulled them out one by one, while testing both of their knowledge on high fashion brands. While Badshah started all guns blazing, Diljit caught up, quickly. © Hotstar © Hotstar The competition kept getting more fierce by minute, and one could see Diljit's focus getting steadier and steadier, till he started belting out the label names with a greater dedication than KJo chooses his airport looks with. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 8:12am PST Ultimately, it was Diljit who came out victorious, without having to struggle a lot. © Hotstar While Badshah's 'wakhra swag' is definetly infectious, desi hypebeast Diljit just proved that his fashion knowledge is in an entirely different league. Kudos, Paaji!
  4. The Indian cricket team has been blessed with a variety of spinners across all formats. With the Virat Kohli-led side currently battling the Australians in the first Test, Ravichandran Ashwin - who has become a Test specialist for his country - was seen bamboozling the hosts at the Adelaide Oval. The Indian offie picked three crucial wickets in the first innings and then claimed two more scalps in the second innings to ensure the visitors are just six wickets away, with one day still left to play, from clinching an emphatic win and taking a 1-0 lead in the four-match series. But, while Ashwin has spun a web around the Aussies to aid his team, a young spinner from Kashmir has taken the social media by storm with his bowling skills. Believe it, or not, a seven-year-old kid from Kashmir boasts of impeccable spin bowling skills that has even impressed Shane Warne. Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition. pic.twitter.com/GEanTVuVME — Mufti Islah (@islahmufti) 23 July 2018 In a video shared by a Jammu & Kashmir-based journalist on the social media, the young boy Ahmad, who hails from Ganderbal district of Kashmir, was seen bowling a googly that initially pitched way outside the line of the wickets before taking a sharp turn of more than a metre and clipped the stumps. “Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition,” the tweet read. This is outstanding ! Well bowled young man ð https://t.co/NfADPHXj4F — Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) 5 December 2018 Taking note of the talented young boy, the former Australian cricketer hailed praise at his bowling skills and tweeted: "This is outstanding! Well bowled young man”. Apart from Warne, the video of the young boy also impressed cricket fans across the globe. The video has already garnered nearly 90k views, while it has been retweeted over 500 times on Twitter. Wow masha allah , what a talent , Chinaman in kashmir . — eyelone (@aashirlone) 24 July 2018 What a talent , god bless this champion . — eyelone (@aashirlone) 5 December 2018 Was shown during extraa innings at ESPN as well ... MashAllaha great one from our land — Gowhar Bhat (@GowharBhat10) 8 December 2018 What a ball and above all look at the happiness on his face.. Great talent, India must nurture... — Pankaj Sharma (@journopankaj) 23 July 2018 Magician — Sofi Muddasir (@SofiMuddasir2) 23 July 2018 Well done kid. Keep spinning — Prasant Samal (@SamalPrasant123) 9 December 2018 recruit them young, get Kumble to work with him? — Giri Iyer (@GiriIyer1) 8 December 2018 The caption of the video 'ball of the century' originally refers to Warne's magical delivery that got rid of England's Mike Gatting during the second day's play of the first Test at Old Trafford in 1993. Warne's delivery had pitched outside the leg stump before turning sharply and clipping the top of off-stump. Hailed as the revival point of spin bowling in Test cricket, the delivery was later termed as 'ball of the century' by the cricketing fraternity.
  5. Ranveer Singh And Deepika Padukone's wedding has been pretty much the only topic that has been trending in Bollywood of late, till of course Nick-Yanka also joined the bandwagon. The last leg of the celebrations were held yesterday in Mumbai, where pretty much everyone was invited. While everyone looked like a million bucks, we couldn't help but notice one young lad, who fit right in, yet stood apart. We are talking about Arjun Tendulkar, the designated Prince of Indian cricket (Is Sachin the King or the God? Anyway, you get the drift). (c) Viral Bhayani Arjun looked like someone whom KJo will just swoop right in and sign a bunch of films with. His blingy yet sophisticated blue kurta, paired with the black Patiala trousers were understated, yet statement. (c) Viral Bhayani (c) Viral Bhayani What was striking about his appearance was how tall he looked. Well, he was standing next to his father, who's not so tall himself, so that helped a bit, but the outfit gave him a lot of height. The pairing of blue black in the ratio he wore them in had a lot to do in that area. (c) Viral Bhayani We also liked the fact that he chose to be basic, yet dignified. The choice of plain black Oxfords tell us that he's a no-nonsense kind of dresser who sticks to the tasteful basics. (c) Viral Bhayani All we can say is that, if he someday decides not to play cricket anymore, Bollywood will knock on his door right away. All the best, Arjun!
  6. The wedding celebrations of Priyanka and Nick, or as I lovingly call them- 'Prick', have kicked off with a colourful Mehendi ceremony In Jodhpur. Going by the pictures they both posted on their social media accounts, it was a great, happy party with the bride and the groom looking so much in love. View this post on Instagram One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Dec 1, 2018 at 7:31am PST Shoutout to Prick for actually sharing the pictures on the day of the function, instead of pulling a DeepVeer and making the entire country wait desperately for a glimpse of their big fat Indian shaadi. So, since all the festivities have begun, people on Twitter have also kicked off their own traditions and have started making jokes and memes of the two. I mean, if there aren't any funny tweets about something, did that thing really happen? No, of course not! So, here's what people on Twitter are saying: First, it's not exactly a Prick wedding reaction, but it's still hilarious. I love Twitter. pic.twitter.com/VdUomGJjmn — Angoor Stark ð®ð³ (@ladywithflaws) December 1, 2018 The power! So priyanka chopra really made Nick Jonas,Joe jones and sophie turner wear indian outfits...Wow WE STAN..!! pic.twitter.com/qyQiNWoYE3 — $alwa (@Salwa_S05) November 28, 2018 Nick is more desi than all of us. 1) this piece is really lovely 2) nick literally slid into priyanka's dm's...they didn't meet for a year...and then he proposed on the third date...nick jonas has actually been a desi man all along https://t.co/7P8knah6M8 — vandana (@vandanaiscool) November 29, 2018 They truly are. Wow nick and priyanka are actually schmidt and cece in real life pic.twitter.com/JcYlexRwo6 — Mack (@mackthomp_) November 28, 2018 Obviously. Priyanka and Nick will get married. What a lovely couple! Women should marry younger men to live a healthier and happier life. — taslima nasreen (@taslimanasreen) November 27, 2018 It's a competition and everyone is winning! .#NickyankaKiShaadi : Now, We Will Be In The Limelight!#DeepVeer : Bitch Please! pic.twitter.com/pkarHBLxWH — ^Chhola Bhatura^ (@ZiddiInsaan) December 1, 2018 All of us. My face looking at these Priyanka and Nick mehendi photos pic.twitter.com/KpoBUxaJ1D — Nabela (@Nabela) December 1, 2018 Well, of course! Sophie Turner will see how brutal Indian aunties are at weddings and realise that the Red Wedding was a lot kinder. — chethana (@iamdatemike) November 29, 2018 The Nick-ah of the year? Who called it Priyanka Chopra's wedding and not Nick-ah? — Avinash Iyer (@IyerAvin) August 18, 2018 Let her enjoy! The happiest Sansa Stark will ever look at a wedding #NickyankaWedding pic.twitter.com/Zbg6m8swCn — Shreemi Verma (@shreemiverma) December 1, 2018 What happens?

The best thing to come out of the #NickYanka wedding is that India is now related to Sansa Stark. — Abhipsha Mahapatro (@calmchutney) November 29, 2018
  7. One mega wedding just got over, and another one is happening right now as you read it. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are getting married right now, but the DeepVeer Saga still continues, and how! Today is the last leg of the celebrations, where the entire film fraternity of Mumbai is joining them. Of course, given how the power couple has been killing it in the pictues so far, people were curious about their look today, more than the previous occasions. The pictures are finally out, and boy, are they insane! Take a look. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Dec 1, 2018 at 7:46am PST After going the desi way for all the other functions, they finally chose to let their wild side loose, and it surely is a sight to behold! Ranveer's black complements Deepika's devil red in ways we can't even comprehend! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Dec 1, 2018 at 8:02am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Dec 1, 2018 at 8:05am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Dec 1, 2018 at 8:03am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Dec 1, 2018 at 8:08am PST We are speechless. We truly are.
  8. Bhai does what he wants to. His newest project, it looks like, is to keep the fashion flamboyance buoyant in Bollywood, now that Ranveer Singh is a married man and that might just influence his dressing sense (read, Deepika pre-approved clothes are likely to be rather grounded, just like she is). Why we are saying this out of the blue? He just stepped out wearing a pair of pants that made us go: WOAH. Take a look! © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani What a piece! Is there anything that is not going on in that piece? Ombre, patchwork, bootcut silhouette - it has everything! © Viral Bhayani Now, he has tried to keep it a little subtle by wearing black on top, but that's his go-to piece anyway. Also, nothing is enough to tone that Salmon red pair down. © Viral Bhayani What we think is really gutsy about the look, however, is that Salman has made absolutely no efforts to give any special treatment to this pair, even though it is a special pair. The frayed edges, the black leather clunky boots, and the irreverence with which he carries out the rest of his blue bootcut jeans - everything is all too conspicuous here, and that's what makes it a statement look. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that this is crazy, because we have never spotted Salman Khan in anything like this before. Is something new brewing?
  9. Mary Kom recently booked her spot in the pages of history with her 6th consecutive win in a boxing championship at the AIBA Women's World Championships. Manipur-born Mary Kom is by far one the greatest boxing champions the country has seen in recent times and it is not just her talent in the boxing ring that's commendable. © Instagram The entire nation has witnessed her grit and determination time and again, but her skills on display at every championship is an absolute treat to the eyes. Her moves are lethal and so craftily planted that the opponent hardly truly recovers from her take. However, if you felt that boxing is the only talent Mary Kom boasts of, you couldn't have been more wrong! Recently, at an event where Mary Kom was in attendance, the boxer took to the stage and sang her own rendition of the classic Lata Mangeshkar song, 'Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh' from the movie 'Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai'. Her soulful rendition of the song was well received by everyone present at the event, as she serenaded to the karaoke music of the song. The video has since gone viral across various social media platform. Imagine the amount of talent she possesses! She really is a complete package, and sure has a lot of feathers added to her hat. We shall be looking forward to seeing more of her hidden talents in the time to come, but in the meantime we're celebrating her massive win just like the rest of the country.
  10. The world hasn't completely recovered from the storm called 'DeepVeer Ki Shaadi' that came in November and blew our minds away. But, that isn't stopping Bollywood's power couple (Ranveer and Deepika), from breaking the internet every single day, with their gorgeous pictures. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 21, 2018 at 6:04am PST Right from their wedding (pre and post) and everything in between, every picture and aspect about it is stunning and mesmerizing to say the least. And so is their FIRST picture from their Mumbai reception, which they have hosted today for their close friends and family members, at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 28, 2018 at 6:59am PST If this doesn't epitomise royalty and elegance, we wonder what does. In case you are waiting for Bollywood's bigwigs to make an appearance, you guys will have to wait for a few more days. The couple will be hosting another reception in Mumbai for their B-town friends on December 1.

View this post on Instagram #ranveersingh laughs his heart out as he hears the word 'bhabhiji' A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Nov 28, 2018 at 7:22am PST View this post on Instagram Royal #deepikapadukone #ranveersingh A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Nov 28, 2018 at 7:23am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Nov 28, 2018 at 7:30am PST Ranveer and Deepika got married at Villa del Balbianello in Lake Como, Italy on November 14 and 15.
  11. Just as the DeepVeer phenomenon got over, we are ready to witness another mega wedding - one that possibly might just be bigger, given its international appeal. Priyanka and Nick are finally about to get married, and the fact that we are as excited about it as DeepVeer is only fair, because A, our Desi Girl is finally getting hitched, and B, it's as much a Hollywood affair as it is Bollywood. The fam is already in the country, to all the fans' delight, and the affair just started off with a Puja. People that we never thought of seeing in full-on Desi attires (read, Sansa Stark), appeared in Lehengas and Sherwanis. Take a look! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Manav Manglani (@manav.manglani) on Nov 27, 2018 at 11:06pm PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Priyanka & Nick FCðð (@prickfanclub) on Nov 27, 2018 at 11:07pm PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Nov 28, 2018 at 12:25am PST We love the pastel Sherwanis the Jonas brothers are wearing, and let's just say Sophie Turner looking divine in a blood red lehenga and yellow dupatta is only making us wonder about the sartorial fireworks the actual wedding will entail.
  12. Millennials have had the best experience by far when it comes to kids' entertainment. We had the chance to watch the best cartoons on TV that weren't just entertaining but also taught us a great deal about life. From 'Tom & Jerry' to 'Duck Tales', 'Jungle Book' and 'Pokemon', every cartoon promised a lot more than just senseless fun. Another such memorable creation was 'The Lion King' which totally enthralled the young minds, wanting us to catch on the next episode ASAP. If you grew up loving Simba, Mufasa, Nala and Timon, as earnestly as we did, then you're up for the greatest news of your life time. Millennials shall get to relive those fine moments from their childhood with Disney's remake of this classic! © Walt Disney Pictures What's more, the very first teaser trailer for the remake just dropped a few hours ago and we are dizzy with excitement! A minute and a half in length, the film is being produced by Walt Disney pictures and shall be helmed by Iron Man and The Jungle Book director, Jon Favreau. The photorealistic, computer animated movie promises to be hell lot of fun with prominent actors lending their voice to our favourite characters. The film will have Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa. © Walt Disney Pictures Here's the trailer: In the trailer, we can see Rafiki presenting a young Simba to the animals of the Pride Lands, with the classic shot of Simba being hoisted up in the air. The film is scheduled to release on July 19th, 2019 and we simply can't keep calm!
  13. Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar are perhaps the most competitive people in Bollywood. While KJo always makes sure that no one stands a chance when it comes to the conquests of his sartorial adventures, Akshay Kumar does it in life. The recent 'Koffee With Karan' episodes are proof. We just saw a glimpse of that IRL. KJo stepped out wearing an insane pair of shoes, like he usually does. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani He's wearing the 2 Chainz X Versace Chain Reaction sneakers. © Viral Bhayani The statement white bulky sole with chain link details makes the pair stand out, along with the black and red colour palette. © Viral Bhayani You'd think it would be near impossible to beat this pair in terms of making a statement, but Khiladi Kumar clearly thought otherwise. He stepped out in a pair that stood out in its own right, and how! Take a look. © Viral Bhayani High tops are in, but Akshay has always been one to stick to the basics, and not go all out in terms of sticking to a trend. Clearly, times are changing and so is he. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Just look at that insane pair of white sneakers. Not only are they runway-ready, they are giving a whole new dimension to Akki's all-black athleisure outfit. © Viral Bhayani Do we have a new fashionista to look out for in Bollywood? Let's just say KJo sure has competition.
  14. We are not sure about 'achhe din', but it seems like the popularity of moral policing around porn consumption in the country is really gaining momentum. Recently, The Indian Express carried a report that talked about how a neurology professor from the Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS) in Banaras Hindu University (BHU) launched an app that blocks porn sites and plays bhajans instead. © Google Playstore Called the 'Har Har Mahadev' app, it was created under the aegis of professor Dr. Vijay Nath Mishra from the Department of Neurology at IMS. Created with the aim to help curb people's addiction to porn and violent content online, the app blocks over 3,800 porn websites. What it does instead is, play devotional songs and inspirational speeches by personalities like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela when one tries to open a porn site. Talking about his intention behind this move, Dr. Mishra was quoted by The Indian Express as saying, “When I decided to develop this app, I had my children and family in mind and my patients who come in with behavioural problems. Devotional songs praising God will play if anyone tries to open a porn site. Addiction to pornography cannot be treated but this is a humble attempt at changing one's behaviour.” © Twitter/mishravijaya25 Dr. Mishra belongs to the family of head priests at Varanasi's Sankat Mochan Temple and seems to have undertaken this initiative to “cure” patients who are addicted to “social evils” such as watching porn by introducing them to religious songs. We're not sure if that would work, but just to get it out of the way, will you download this app?
  15. The moment Ranveer and Deepika shared their wedding announcement on Instagram, a particular round of memes started doing the rounds on the Internet. 'Ranveer is going to wear a Lehenga on his own wedding' was the essence of those memes. Now, a typical Indian man would probably feel a lot of emotions in such a scenario - ranging from anger to embarrassment, but Ranveer Singh is no ordinary man. He dealt with it like a pro, and shut the trolls up in a way that should be legit textbook material. He went ahead and wore an insane Angrakha by Sabyasachi with an elaborate flare - an outfit that gave all the Lehengas and skirts of the world a run for their money. © Instagram/Deepikapadukone Just look at that man, will you? Hell, he probably wore it to hide his massive steel balls. Take THAT, haters! © Instagram/Deepikapadukone Who else can take a joke, and convert that into a statement? Actually, that was just a bi-product of his nonchalance tbh. We're sure Ranveer didn't even flinch once the memes started pouring in. He went ahead and did his own thing, just like he has been doing it since he stepped inside the kaleidoscope called Bollywood. © Instagram/Deepikapadukone Plus he got Deepika as a partner in crime - someone who has always conducted herself with utmost grace and sophistication in the industry, even in the face of difficulty (remember 'Padmaavat release?) © Instagram/Ranveersingh Clearly, Deepika probably just told him, "You do you, baby." And boy, did he, and how. © Instagram/Ranveersingh Can we also take a moment to appreciate the Goddess that Deepika is, here? Look at that zen face, while being absolutely gorgeous at the same time. © Instagram/Deepikapadukone We don't care how cliched this term is, we will still go ahead and say that this couple is legit #CoupleGoals.
  16. In our growing years, comic books, especially 'The Jungle Book', stayed with us for most part of our childhood. Kids today will never understand the excitement and thrill of watching a young kid being raised in the jungle by a pack of wolves, a panther and a bear and how they help him fight Shere Khan. Netflix Now, Netflix is coming up with its own version called 'Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle', which is darker and spectacular than any other version we've seen. In case, you missed the trailer that was released earlier this month, you can watch it here again. Today, Netlfix announced the Hindi cast of the movie that will premiere globally on December 7, 2018. Actor Anil Kapoor has been roped in for the role of Baloo, Abhishek Bachchan will play Bagheera, Madhuri Dixit Nene will be Nisha, Kareena Kapoor Khan will play snake Kaa, and Jackie Shroff will play Shere Khan. View this post on Instagram The voices of the jungle are calling. Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle on Netflix December 7. A post shared by Netflix India (@netflix_in) on Nov 19, 2018 at 9:30pm PST Andy Serkis, who is making his directorial debut with this movie will play Baloo the bear, Rohan Chand will play Mowgli, Christian Bale will play Bagheera, Cate Blanchett will play snake Kaa, and Benedict Cumberbatch will play Shere Khan. Mathew Rhys and Freida Pinto too will be a part of the movie. Netflix In the Netflix adaptation, Mowgli will find himself torn between two worlds and how he accepts his destiny and becomes a legend. Reportedly, Netflix has picked India for the world premiere of this movie, and it's a huge deal because it will be for the first time that a big-budget Hollywood movie will have its premiere in India.
  17. Often labelled as the greatest batsman of his generation, Virat Kohli continues to elevate his game and, in turn, popularity amongst the fans. If his impeccable batting skills or disciplined fitness regime wasn't enough, Kohli's leadership skills which has allowed Team India to scale new heights, has further enhanced his reputation as one of the most iconic sportspersons in the country. However, in the fast-growing digital age, someone's popularity can be misused for leisure and fun. We've often seen celebrities falling prey to parody accounts on the social media. And, the Indian captain is no different. Instagram/@virat.kohli While there are many parody accounts in the name of Kohli, one particular Twitter account - @imVlkohli - seems to be making a lot of noise on the micro-blogging website. Capitalising on Kohli's love for brands and his endorsements, the parody account was created on Twitter earlier this month and, in a short span of time, already boasts of over 3000 followers. The Twitter account hogged the limelight after Kohli was slammed for his comments that "people who do not like Indian batsmen should leave the country". Following Kohli's remarks, the Delhi batsmen attracted a lot of criticism on the social media. At the same time, when everyone was trolling Kohli, the parody account in question tweeted that the 30-year-old has decided to discontinue his endorsement deals with non-Indian brands. I am discontinuing my brand endorsement contract with non indian brands with immediate effect. I will now endorse only Indian brands, hope the Indian fans too, will like and endorse Indian cricketers over English and Australian cricketers from now on. Thank you. — Virat Kolhi (@imVlkohli) 7 November 2018 Since then, Kohli's parody account has been seen excessively promoting and tagging multiple brands in a single tweet. The account has also quote-tweeted Anushka Sharma, Virender Sehwag and Cheteshwar Pujara, pretending to be Kohli.

  18. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are finally married! The wait is over, the couple has blessed us with two beautiful pictures from their Italian wedding and it was worth the wait and those two pictures made up for the fact that we have just been looking at those blurry pictures and videos from Lake Como for more than a day. View this post on Instagram â¤ï¸ A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 15, 2018 at 6:36am PST But, going by so many comments, so many people may have been actually interested in their wedding pictures but still commented 'no one cares' so we're giving them something everyone loves – funny memes and jokes about the wedding – because let's be real, who doesn't love a good old funny tweet compilation. Enjoy! Literally all the haters.

  19. 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!
  20. The Tesla Roadster that Elon Musk launched a few months ago, has now crossed Mars after travelling in deep space for 8 months. The roadster was launched on a Falcon Heavy in February, has made its way beyond Mars and is now going to get back on its current path. © Twitter The mission was sent using Musk's personal Tesla into space with a spacesuit-equipped dummy in the driver's seat and David Bowie's "Space Oddity" playing on loop. The car also has a 5D quartz storage device that can withstand the harsh environment of space. According to WhereIsRoadster.com, the car is currently around 179 million miles from Earth and is moving at a pace of 35,000 mph. The test flight of the Falcon Heavy marked the start of the world's most powerful rocket and it has the ability to send a 140,700-pound payload into low Earth orbit. © YouTube The Roadster will come within a few hundred kilometres of our planet in 2091, as it has resumed its current path to orbit the Sun. SpaceX used the roadster for the test payload in part, because they deemed it fun. As part of NASA's Commercial Crew program, SpaceX will be sending astronauts to the International Space Station.

Next stop, the restaurant at the end of the universe," SpaceX wrote on Twitter, referring to the second book in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
  21. Some say that one can find as many as 7 people in the world who look exactly like them. Given the 7.6 billion population of the world, chances of finding your lookalike or doppelganger are literally one in a billion. Despite this, almost every other day we come across people who turn out to be carbon copies of our favourite celebrities. After successfully finding the doppelgangers of Tom Hardy, Tiger Shroff, Saif Ali Khan, Karan Johar and even Virat Kohli; the Internet has now found the doppelganger of Ravi Shastri and turned him into these hilarious memes. Twitter Recently, a picture of a man travelling in a Mumbai local started making rounds after people realised that the man looks strikingly similar to the current head coach of the Indian cricket team. Twitter being Twitter, it immediately pounced on the opportunity to meme the hell out of him. People were at their savage best and these hilarious memes are a glimpse of their savagery.

  22. Just like everything else, Chinese companies try to copy or steal ideas from innovative companies and sell it as their own. Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule however in a new scandal, Chinese hackers and spies were caught by U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for stealing confidential aircraft technology from American and French companies. According to the indictment, the two accused were Chinese intelligence officers. © YouTube We've already seen Chinese companies lifting ideas, technology and designs in other products such as smartphones, earphones and even cars; however, this is the first time Chinese intelligence officers have been caught stealing information. According to DOJ, that from January 2010 until May 2015, the officers and their teams attempted to hack and steal tech related to a new turbofan engine. Stealing the information would enable Chinese companies (public and private) to copy and build similar jet engines. Stealing of this information would prevent the Chinese from investing a lot of money into research and development. During the time of the hacks, a government-owned aerospace company was working to develop a comparable engine. © Pexels The Chinese hackers targeted firms like Capstone Turbine, French company Safran SA, that co-develops engines with U.S.-based General Electric and other companies in Arizona, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oregon, and the United Kingdom. The packers used techniques such as phishing schemes, domain hijacking, and using the companies' own websites to steal visitor information. The two accused were employed by the French company and used their position to install the Sakula remote access trojan onto their systems. "State-sponsored hacking is a direct threat to our national security," said U.S. Attorney Adam Braverman. "The concerted effort to steal, rather than simply purchase, commercially available products should offend every company that invests talent, energy, and shareholder money into the development of products.” Seems like Chinese entities can't help themselves from stealing information and ideas rather than investing in research and development. Earlier this month, Yanjun Xu, a spy for the Chinese ministry of state security, was arrested for economic espionage and attempting to steal trade secrets from US aviation and aerospace companies.

  23. Chris Hemsworth is in India! That's it, that's the story because the God of Thunder has finally made his way to our country and everyone's so excited about it, and rightly so. Just a couple of months ago, we heard about the new Netflix project Chris was going to be a part of and all of us took some extra interest in it because it's an India based movie called 'Dhaka'. All we knew at that time about the project was that Chris was playing the role of a man who is on a rescue mission to rescue a kidnapped Indian boy in Dhaka. View this post on Instagram The #GodofThunder aka #ChrisHemsworth is in #Ahmedabad to shoot his #Netflix movie #Dhaka with our very talented actors #ManojBajpayee and #RandeepHooda ð #aditiraval A post shared by Aditi Raval (@aditiraval) on Oct 31, 2018 at 10:38pm PDT Along with Chris, the Netflix thriller also stars Manoj Bajpayee and Randeep Hooda. While we were all already excited about him coming to India, we only realized how much when he was spotted at the Ahmedabad Airport. He clicked selfies with a lot of fans who were lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time. View this post on Instagram #MetAnAvenger in Ahmedabad!

Also, looks like he'll be here for Diwali and I personally can't wait to see him in a kurta celebrating with everyone. After Ahmedabad, the shooting will continue in Mumbai. A source was quoted as saying, “Dharavi and Byculla are two of the locations that have been zeroed in for the shoot. Though it will primarily be work, the Indian crew has decided to play perfect hosts to Chris. Feasting in gullies of Colaba and Khau Gully in Mohammed Ali Road is on the cards.” Apparently, he also wants to Rajasthan before leaving for Thailand for the shoot. All the fans are excited and sharing their excitement with everyone on Twitter, no surprises there.

  24. Recently, I caught the flu which made me hibernate for a few days at home, lest I distribute my germs evenly at office. While grappling through various bizarre channels on television I realised I can in fact Netflix something chill and spend my sick days more viably. What I didn't know was I wasn't prepared for what was coming my way. © FlanaganFilm While glancing through the new shows to watch on Netflix I stumbled upon 'The Haunting of Hill House' (THoHH) and as intrigued as my spirit forever is, I started cuing the show. Fair warning though- don't ever watch it while you're sick or down in the dumps. It gets beneath your skin and up your psyche and tries and fiddles around with your timid mind space at that point in time. And that's exactly what it did to me. THoHH isn't just another horror show waiting for an audience popularity award and some serious reckoning on social media. It's a bit mind altering and shrewd with it's content. The kind of show you'd want to cue if you feel your inhibitions are right in place...and then suddenly they skyrocket to another galaxy. © FlanaganFilm The series starts with unfolding a familial structure slowly. The Crain family spends a considerable amount of time in a haunted house, away from the city, near the woods and they slowly realise all their demons lie in that house. How? Well, like I told you, it's not just a horror series. it's way more than that. When you grow up in a big family, you go through a lot of ups and downs. Some serious issues escalate, some serious traumas find their way to settle in, inside your mind but in time you learn to deal with these traumas through certain realisations and by facing them head on. But that wasn't the case here. And by here I mean within the series, inside Hill House. © FlanaganFilm Okay, let me explain how. *spoiler alert* . The Crain family moves in to a huge mansion called the Hill House, somewhere far away from civilisation. The house originally belonged to the Hill family, who'd died in different circumstances and they became the house, literally. There isn't much background thrown about them though. There's an elderly woman who was living there, who certainly died of a sickness and then there was a couple - Poppy and William Hill who'd met at an asylum and fallen in love and of course died at the house too. The story revolves around two timelines. One in which they show the Crain family living in the house as kids, being haunted by every nook and cranny of the house and the second timeline shows them all grown up, years later, living separately, still being haunted by their own ghosts, without realising it's all connected to their childhood in the house. © FlanaganFilm Despite all the hidden ghosts and the not-so hidden ones, not many are given a back-story and as viewers you have to imagine the best or the worst scenarios and that's what I did, while I deduced every little scene into a metaphor, for familial relationships in general. The five siblings Steven (Michiel Huisman), Shirley (Elizabeth Reaser), Theodora (Kate Seigal), and twins Nell and Luke (Victoria Pedretti & Oliver Jackson Cohen), grow up in the house as close as they can be with their parents Hugh (Timothy Hutton) and Olivia (CarlaGugino). Each one of them has a demon to fight and a ghost to let go off, while living in the house. But they're all in some sort of spatial denial about what they usually see. Except maybe Nellie, who sees a 'bent-neck-lady' often at night and freaks out and screams. Luke sees Willian Hill, who comes to look for his hat which is in Luke's possession. The rest have their fair share of visions and anomalies but the less they talk about it, the better they feel. © FlanaganFilm The second timeline is all of them dealing with what they should have talked about in the first place instead of suppressing it. Which is a clear indication of how families need to be more open with each other and not let anything find its way under the rug. © FlanaganFilm The timelines are almost intertwined because the grown up siblings find it hard to cope with normal life, while going through serious PTSD, having grown up in a house that magnified their life fears. Steven is a struggling author, who writes a book about the house, which is a mere narration of all the horror stories he heard from his siblings and while not penning down his own experiences in the house, since he kept everything in the realms of denial, when it came to him facing his demons. Luke is a drug addict, struggling to keep clean, while jumping from one rehab to another, Shirley tries to face her demons for having an extra marital affair and not telling her husband about it, Nell still sees the bent-neck-lady and believes she never left her side and has taken over her life in more ways than one and Theodora feels everything she touches and sometimes that makes her inept to connect with other people, most days. © FlanaganFilm The trauma lurks through grim shadows all their life, while they struggle to find themselves again, 20 years later and the only way to live a normal life is to confront the ghosts of the past, literally. Since their mother Olivia's suicide in the house, their father never lets them explore the real truth about why Olivia kills herself in the first place and the mystery only unfolds for the siblings when one of them-Nell, goes back to the house and kills herself too. The only way for them to come to terms with what happened and let everything go is to actually go back to the house, years later. And they do. Okay, no more spoilers, you need to watch it to know what really happens in the end. © FlanaganFilm While the series kept me upright, all night, with a really icky feeling in the pit of my stomach it also made me realise the latent message the show is trying to sublimely give out. The fact that we all live like the Crains, throughout our life and never confront our own demons when we should. We never lay out what's in our mind or what we see and what we defy, most days. That we don't listen when someone needs to be heard. And all these instances become something malicious in our own head and make us go through post traumatic strife all our life. It just seems like we're all living a post traumatic lifestyle and it's time to change that. The serious message the director Mike Flanagan is trying to deliver is that of solidarity within a family, to avoid fighting our ghosts from the past. The 'Red Room' for instance was a room in the house, which was called the 'heart' of the house. It was a room for everyone to recreate their solace and become one with the house again. We should do that as a family. Recreate and share our solace and misery with the ones we truly love and not let anything lurk in the shadows to actually let go of any sort of darkness, that inhibits our days while we're grown adults. While I loved the series, this is in no way a review but an interpretation of a subjective understanding of the show. The treatment of the series is top-notch and I couldn't help think about the hidden message time and again and write about it, to help people understand the creepy yet significant moral of story. Although, I am done watching the show and it really hasn't stopped hounding the pit of my stomach yet and once the feeling goes away, I might just watch it again!
  25. Ayushmann Khurrana and Aparshakti Khurrana are perhaps the only pair of siblings in Bollywood who not only are talented in terms of acting, but are also slowly climbing the charts when it comes to commercial success. Add to that the effortless likability both of them exude, and you get the entire package. However, acting isn't their only forte. When it comes to being fashion-forward, they have evolved at an unmatched pace, and now are perched on top of the pyramid. They were recently spotted together, and showed us why they are the most fashionable siblings in Bollywood right now. © Viral Bhayani Be it Ayushmann's mesh trench coat paired with a longline T-shirt, or Aparshakti's Virgin Mary Relaxed longline T-shirt, the Khurrana bros are the champs when it comes to new-age street style. It almost looks like they are the members of an uber cool band that only allow people who are woke in terms of their style game. © Viral Bhayani Both of them chose to wear relaxed black trousers - an apt choice for both of their outfits, which are distinctly different but are alike in terms of their cool quotient. While Aparshakti chose a pair that are cropped at the ankle, Ayushmann chose a regular one that can also pass off as a relaxed pair of black joggers. © Viral Bhayani They decided to go separate ways only in terms of their footwear. While Ayushmann went for the tried and tested aesthetic of a pair of Air Jordans, Aparshakti chose a pair of classy black leather shoes. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that we are mighty impressed by the crazy aesthetics both of them have embraced unabashedly. Way to go, boys!
