  1. Vijay Verma is like a rare diamond found in a heap of coals. His acting was priceless in 'Gully Boy' and has us hooked on him ever since. For an actor, to say so much with his expressions and his eyes without saying anything at all is an achievement that not many actors can claim to have. But Vijay Verma is not just great at acting, he also has impeccable taste in fashion which reflects every now and then when he steps out of the door. His sense of style is raw, rugged and yet classy just like his acting. He has that rare Tumblr-esque aesthetic to his pictures which is rarely found among the Bollywood actors lot. For the Filmfare awards 2019, actors have experimented with all sorts of outfits, From Ranveer Singh's extra Versace shirt to the porn star moustache seen on so many actors like Ayushmann Khurrana and Arjun Kapoor. The red carpet is a place where crazy experiments take place and are appreciated. © Instagram/ itsvijayverma Vijay Verma wore a classic three-piece that consisted of Satya Paul, NM design studio and Trumpet shoes. Take a look: © Instagram/ itsvijayverma © Instagram/ itsvijayverma And the outfit is one glorious piece of art, don't you agree?
  2. In a wonderful meetup ahead of the first match for Delhi Capitals (DC) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede stadium, Delhi's newly appointed team advisor Sourav Ganguly shared a few moments with Yuvraj Singh. Yuvi meets Dada and it will surely give you goosebumps ð­ððð»#CricketMeriJaan #MIvDC @YUVSTRONG12 @SGanguly99 pic.twitter.com/yPmeaLWUT0 — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 22, 2019 After sharing a couple of laughs, the two legends of the game were parting ways when Dada said: “Have a great season, play like Yuvraj Singh...”. And boy, did Yuvi oblige to the statement just a day later. Now, if there is someone who the Indian cricket fans expect to bounce back after having years of bad run with the game, it has to be the 37-year-old, son of Punjab, Yuvraj Singh. Time and again, Singh has shown his worth as a fighter, a warrior, not only inside the circular, green field but in the biggest race of life when he came triumphant, out of the battle against cancer, which was diagnosed in 2012. Nearly seven years later, last evening, in his first match as a Mumbai Indian, Singh once again turned back the clock and appeared to be the same beast of a man who hit six 6's in an over against England in a group stage match of the first edition of ICC World T20, 12 years ago. In MI's season opener against Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals, Yuvi scored a total of 53 runs in just 35 deliveries, which also included five boundaries and three maximums. Rolling back the clock and HOW! A fifty on his #MI debut. Keep fighting, @YUVSTRONG12 ð#CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #OneFamily #MIvDC pic.twitter.com/Otcjf8wbot — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 24, 2019 Even though Mumbai went down swinging in a losing effort to chase DC's massive total of 213, the 53-run inning has to feel like a personal victory to the Chandigarh-born, who got to raise the bat in celebrating the half-ton for the first time in two years in the IPL. What makes the feat a lot more commendable is the brains that came along with all the brawn in Yuvi's primary game as the member of the MI Paltan. Losing skipper Rohit Sharma and the Proteas wicket-keeper-batsman, Quinton de Kock early in the early overs, the responsibilities on the veteran's shoulders multiplied. However, when the left-handed batsman took to the crease, he looked calm and composed, only to send a couple of deliveries over the boundary with extreme ease, shortly after. “I took my time there. The wickets were falling and I thought if I take a chance early, we (don't) want to end getting close to the game, so I just took my time. I am happy with the way I was hitting the ball,” Yuvraj said, in the post-game press conference. Singh's loyal fans, who have been literally waiting for years to celebrate the return of their beloved “Thalaiva”, finally got the opportunity to do so and they did not disappoint: Form is temporary..

  3. Ever since he burst onto the screen in 2012 as Rohan Nanda in 'Student Of The Year', Varun Dhawan has risen by leaps and bounds to become one of Bollywood's most bankable stars. As he prepares to wow the audiences with his latest offering, the period drama 'Kalank', we can't help but notice how effortlessly he has brought to life the wide range of characters he has portrayed on screen. Whether it's playing a flashy young upstart in 'Main Tera Hero', a sombre young widower hellbent on revenge in 'Badlapur', or a small town tailor struggling to make ends meet in 'Sui Dhaaga', he has carried off every role with aplomb. His on-screen versatility and charisma are just two of the reasons each of his films are played in packed theatres across the country, turning into huge successes at the box office. Moreover, his off-screen style game is just as strong as his skill set in acting, which is why he has built up such a loyal fan following. Women love him, and men want to be like him. That's where we at MensXP come in - to help you guys out there emulate Varun Dhawan's effortless yet always on-trend style. So without wasting any more time, here are five easy-to-follow tips inspired by the man himself. Pro Tip 1: It's Time To Go For Quality Over Quantity © Instagram / Varun Dhawan Look inside the wardrobes of most Indian men today, and you'll probably find them filled with the same t shirts, shirts, jeans, and even the same underwear, all in different colours. The reason? When we see an item of clothing we like, we have a habit of picking up at least a couple of differently-coloured variants of the same thing simply because we know it'll work. Well, those days of buying clothes in bulk are over. It's time to ditch the cheap and cheerful in favour of the smart and stylish. Start looking at superior materials, fashion forward cuts and fits, and big name brands. Add a couple of the finest Supima cotton t shirts or the best organic cotton t shirts to your wardrobe, and you'll notice the difference in quality right away. Sure, they might cost you a little more than their regular cotton counterparts, but the improvement in style, and the sophistication they bring to the table is definitely worth it! Pro Tip 2: Aim For “The Best A Man Can Get” © Instagram / Varun Dhawan Just like you shouldn't be pinching pennies when it comes to your wardrobe, you shouldn't be trying to save money when it comes to your personal grooming either. If you thought that using a cheap shaving cream and a disposable razor on your face everyday was enough to get the job done, you've got another think coming! Investing in quality shaving supplies, even something as basic as a quality shaving brush or the best shaving foam can make a huge difference to your grooming routine. If you're prepared to invest a bit more time into your shave, but are still keen to keep the process uncomplicated, then going for the best shaving gel on the market is a great option. Not only will this allow the razor to glide over your face effortlessly, it'll even nourish your skin and make it look healthier and more refreshed. Just give this approach a try, and we're sure you'll appreciate the filmstar-like smooth, close shaves you get with these new tools in your grooming arsenal! Pro Tip 3 : Get Your Wardrobe Fundamentals In Orde © Instagram / Varun Dhawan The key to looking your best doesn't always entail buying the flashiest clothes you can get your hands on.Believe it or not, but your wardrobe is well-equipped enough to make you look good, even if you don't realize it. Most men would agree that a t shirt is one of the most basic articles of clothing in a man's wardrobe, which is why we all have so many of them. Although a plethora of t shirt styles are available on the market, round neck t shirts happen to be the most common variant. This is not thanks to some random coincidence either - they can be worn on their own, or seamlessly paired with an outfit like a jacket and jeans or a smart blazer and chinos. Come the winters, and they can be part of any stylish layered ensemble. As a fashion accessory that will make you look good all year round, investing in the best round neck t shirts for men is really a fashion no-brainer. Pro Tip 4: Don't Be Afraid Of Experimenting With Your Look © Instagram / Varun Dhawan Most men settle upon a hairstyle (as well as a facial hairstyle) from a young age and tend to stick to it throughout their lifetimes. However, the various looks actors like Varun sport in their movies showcase how change can be good, especially with the advancements that have been made in the world of shaving tech. Just zero in on the best razor to suit your particular shaving needs, and you can keep things fresh by switching from a sporty stubble to a classy clean shave (and anything in between) whenever the mood suits you. Pro Tip 5: 'Playing It Safe' Is No Longer Safe! © Instagram / Varun Dhawan If you've been sticking to solid colours for your t shirts and plain variants for your trousers, claiming it to be a 'classic' style, we've got some news for you. The world of men's fashion has moved on, and Bollywood is at the forefront of the movement! If you want to stand out from the dully dressed crowds, eye-catching colours and stylised prints is the way to go! The red carpet has been seeing some of the best printed t shirts for men, distressed jeans, brightly coloured sneakers, and similar fashion accessories being flaunted by our favourite male celebs, and Varun is no stranger to rocking these styles himself. This is one Bollywood fashion trend you'll want to follow, because it'll take your style game to the next level!
  4. A new image of Apple's AirPower was spotted on the company's Australian website and was spotted by Twitter user Michael Bateman. The image appeared on the AirPods page and shows an iPhone XS charging alongside an AirPods wireless charging case. The new image does not show an Apple Watch previous images shown by Apple before. © Apple AirPower has been the long-awaited wireless charging pad by Apple that was announced in 2017 alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The mat has not been since that event as it has been rumoured that the wireless charging mat has been suffering from over-heating issues in the past. Apple that removed any mention of the charging mat from its website, fearing that it may have been cancelled stealthily. © YouTube The new image looks very similar to the previous image released by Apple; however, this time it showcases a smartphone with a wallpaper that was released on the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS. Earlier this week, Apple announced new AirPods and a new wireless charging case that can be used with the AirPower. Earlier this year, it was reported that Apple has started production of the wireless charging mat and would be available for customers later this year. © Apple It is possible that Apple may launch the AirPower quietly today before the company's event on March 25th that will primarily focus on services. The press conference is expected to focus on video streaming service and a new subscription platform.
  5. The fact that Anil Kapoor doesn't look anywhere near his age has long been established and envious 30-year-olds across the country have been trying to make peace with that. However, he recently clicked some pictures with son-in-law Anand Ahuja, and he legit looks younger! In fact, courtesy their all-black ensembles, Mr Kapoor almost looks like he could even be Anand's younger brother. Now that's a lot to digest, considering he's 62, and as impressed we are, we are also confused AF about what on earth he is doing to 'reverse the ageing process', if you will. © Instagram/Anilskapoor Doesn't he look younger? And no, we aren't even referring to Anand's salt-n-pepper scruff and Mr Kapoor's jet black and partially highlighted crowning glory. He just looks younger, miraculously. That skin, that glow, that overall demeanour - age has got nothing on him and he proves it every single day! © Instagram/Anilskapoor In his Instagram post, he captioned the images "Boys Day Out! Subtle, no? Calling myself one of the boys?!" Well, you are, Mr Kapoor. You definitely are!

Three whole decades? And not a single sign of ageing on this man here. View this post on Instagram A post shared by anilskapoor (@anilskapoor) on Jan 26, 2019 at 10:45pm PST Please let us in on your age-defying techniques, Mr Kapoor, for we could all use some help!
  6. Xiaomi has finally launched its first Android Go Edition smartphone, the Redmi Go in India today. With the new Redmi Go, Xiaomi is targeting the first-time smartphone users in the country, and it's priced at Rs 4,449, which puts it head-to-head with other entry-level devices in the country like the Nokia 1, JioPhone 2, and more. Redmi Go comes packed with a bunch of India-focused features like support for up to 20 Indian languages, Hindi language support for Google Assistant, and more. © Xiaomi As for the specifications, the Redmi Go sports a 5 inch HD screen and it's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor. It also has 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB thanks to the microSD card slot. 1GB RAM does sound dated in 2019, but it shouldn't be a matter of concern since the Redmi Go runs Google's Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition), an OS which essentially allows low-end phones to run smoothly despite limited memory and storage capacity. The phone also comes with some pre-installed applications like Gmail Go, Assistant Go, Maps Go, and more. © Xiaomi Other noteworthy specs of the phone include an 8-megapixel rear camera with HDR mode and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Redmi Go does feature dual-SIM support, but sadly there's no dual VoLTE support. Redmi Go will be available to purchase from 22nd March onwards, and you'll be able to pick one up for yourself from Flipkart, mi.com or the Mi Home stores across the country.
  7. This year clearly belongs to biopics. With so many already released in this quarter, the much awaited biopic on everyone's beloved PM Modi is already in the pipeline and is being shot. Actor Vivek Oberoi is coming back after a long hiatus and will be playing the titular role himself. While the news created a lot of buzz because Modi Ji's life story is something everyone wants to watch, many were divided on the choice of the actor. Vivek Oberoi shared his nine different looks which he will portray in the biopic and social media cannot fathom how he looks like Modi Ji at all. Vivek Anand Oberoi's different looks in the biopic #PMNarendraModi... Directed by Omung Kumar... Produced by Sandip Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit... 12 April 2019 release. pic.twitter.com/lkIMrbBhJT — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) March 18, 2019 Looks more like Suresh Oberoi Biopic. — HJSSINGHAM (@HJSSINGHAM) March 18, 2019 Ek bhi look match nhi ho rha hain..... — Manish Singh (@Manish6_singh) March 18, 2019 Na yeh modi dekh raha h na yeh vivek oberoi dekh raha h. Total mess. — Haroon Amin/ÛارÙ٠اÙÛÙ (@haroonamin17) March 18, 2019 While many people are annoyed wondering what angle makes him look like Modi Ji, many feel it's just another stunt for the elections. @RGVzoomin this would be helpul for you to counter attack the censor board, right before elections — BeTheChange (@WizardChoice) March 18, 2019 Does it align with election commission's directives? — sourabh g (@sourabhgdg) March 18, 2019 Movir releasing on the day of election. ðð Election campaign is ON. ðð»ð¤ð»ð — Ananya Shekhawat (@Ananya18531677) March 18, 2019 Also, many feel they only want Paresh Rawal to essay this role. He doesn't look like Modi ji.... I think paresh rawal is the best for this role but see what will the impact of story — Chowkidar Akanshaðð®ð³ (@Akansha2380) March 18, 2019 Paresh Rawal should have played the role. — HJSSINGHAM (@HJSSINGHAM) March 18, 2019 ðððð ye casting director kaun tha ......koi agar kah de ye modi jaisa dikh raha hai ð¤£ð¤£ — विà¤à¤¾à¤¸ वरà¥à¤®à¤¾ (@Traveller_Vikas) March 18, 2019 What do you think, given the fact that maybe the looks probably don't match but we still don't have a trailer of the movie to judge the performance of Vivek Oberoi? The guy is a good actor, so let's hope he's done a fine job. Don't know about 'acche din' but a Modi Ji biopic is releasing on 12th April.
  8. Have you ever felt frustrated when your girlfriend, during an argument, tells you that you are not a good boyfriend? Have you ever felt intense jealousy when she compares you to a fictional character and sighs, ruing the fact that why can't you be as romantic as them? If your answer to the above questions is “Yes”, then this post is just the one for you. Often, while rolling your eyes when something romantic happens on screen (with your girlfriend slyly pointing out how great a boyfriend the character is), you contemplate whether the term “good boyfriend” is a myth. © Pinterest The truth is that you can hardly compare to a fictional boyfriend; the charm, the intensity, the articulation, the good looks, everyone is not blessed with all of these. And even though your girlfriend is well aware of this fact, people can hope, can't they? (Don't act like you have never compared her to Hermione or RobinScherbatsky :P) © 21 Laps Entertainment/Netflix Oft-misunderstood and perpetually trying to achieve the perfection required by the girlfriend, being a boyfriend seems like quite a job, eh? :P But that doesn't mean that every character in fiction, or to be precise, every fictional boyfriend is the stuff of dreams and are faultless. They, like real people, make wrong choices, have fights, do the wrong thing. © Warner Bros. Television/Alloy Entertainment/ The CW In fact, all these years, through various series, novels and movies, we have seen a parade of superficially great fictional boyfriends who get the girl. And the girl seems happy with him. © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions After multiple viewings and thorough character analysis, this is the truth we arrive at: All this while, they have been masquerading as perfect boyfriends who can do no wrong while in reality, they are terrible human beings. © Elizabeth Meriwether Pictures/20th Century Fox Teevision So, the next time your girlfriend accuses you of being a bad boyfriend, you can tell her that there are still worse ones out there, and you have fictional characters to back you up. Here are 12 of the worst boyfriends in fiction: 1. Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother): © CBS/Bays and Thomas Productions/20th Century Fox Television Intense, dedicated, romantic. He is the most relatable guy on TV. Could there be anything wrong with Ted Mosby? Unfortunately, yes. Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) is one of those people who keep whining because they are not in a relationship and when they are in a relationship, they whine about how it was better being single. He is that proverbial nice guy who makes you feel bad about yourself. Ted is the textbook definition of obsequious; he lets people walk all over him in a relationship just so they continue to be in one with him. No doubt that Ted loves with passion and no one else can love as Ted does, but he lets his emotions get the better of him. His ambition to be perfect always comes in the way of his love. Moreover, he tries to manipulate the person he is dating in his own way and throws a tantrum every time they don't concede. He is sweet, but he tries too hard to prove that he is good and better than the rest of the men on the planet. He is narcissistic in the worst possible way, which overshadow his good qualities. In his quest of becoming the “Best Boyfriend Ever,” he hardly thinks about others, in fact about the girl he is dating. His over the top gestures might seem romantic but he but it just comes across as annoying. The biggest problem is he knows what's wrong with him but conveniently chooses to ignore it. 2. Mr Big (*** and the City): © HBO Oh, where can I start on Mr Big (Chris Noth)? He is perhaps the modern equivalent of Mr Darcy, but a very abominable one. He is handsome, smart, rich and articulate. But all these have no value when you are a douchebag. After proclaiming to Carrie that he is no ready for a serious relationship, he ends up getting married to the next woman he runs into. He is commitment-phobic; he finds relationships stifling and he has no qualms in starting an affair with Carrie when he is married. He is unsure of his own feelings and never says what he means, tries to hide the fact that he is dating from other people because others may judge him for the person he's dating. He never seems to care for Carrie or any of his wives. He loves Carrie but is never sure about it and brings out the worst in her (leaving aside the fact that Carrie is terrible herself) and even after a long, long, long courtship leaves her at the altar. 3. Joe Goldberg (You): © Netflix/Berlanti Productions/Alloy Entertainment/Warner Bros. Television The personification of the “Nice Guy Syndrome”. The more you say about Joe (Penn Badgley, who seems to be cursed to play bad boyfriends, but he does it so well), the less it is. He may be the guy next door, but he is the type who doubles up as a murderer/stalker (talk about multi-tasking :P). He seems to take the notion of loving someone to death quite literally, that“someone” usually turning up dead. Yes, all of it is not his fault, Beck isn't completely innocent, but killing another person isn't justifiable. Doesn't really qualify him to be “Boyfriend of the Year”. Worse is he thinks himself to be the victim and justifies his murdering people with being a “protector”. He is a sociopath: he schemes all his movements to the tee and tries to show himself in the best light possible and can lie with élan. He sweet-talks, fakes the good boy act and gaslights with alarming ease. He is delusional; after only a chance meeting and superficial flirtation, he believes that Beck is meant for him and they met because of some plan, that she belongs to him, then tries to manipulate everything in order to achieve that, eventually even choosing violence on the way to get her. 4. Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries): © Outerbanks Entertainment/ CBS/ Warner Bros. Television Sexy vampires cannot hold a candle to the suave and debonair Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). He is a different kind of bad boy: the supernatural bad boy; not only is he wicked but he also is a vampire (what more can you ask for, right? :P) This does not change the fact that Damon is not the perfect boyfriend material. He is selfish, possessive and fights dirty, is abusive (*drinks blood*) and has the worst possible track record in dating. To his credit, he is not afraid to declare it and that is where the problem is; he is too invested in his interests to care about his partner or anyone for that matter. He loves Elena with a fierce intensity which quickly transforms from compelling to dangerous. His desire for Elena stems from the fact that his brother also wants her; he fights for her, not because he loves her but because he hates to lose. To him, Elena is a prize to be won over, not an equal partner. That is hardly the foundation of a good relationship. 5. Don Draper (Mad Men): © Weiner Bros./Silvercup Studios/Lionsgate Television Don (Jon Hamm) is possibly the king of bad boyfriends, a poster child of what a fuckboy should be. He continually cheats on his wife (because why not, it's the '50s, right?), lies to her and treats her with as much respect as people give to a doormat. A true womanizer, one who would put Casanova to shame, he has a string of girlfriends whom he does not care about and are mostly for his sexual gratification. He tries to run away from responsibilities and can hardly be true to someone. He thinks that money solves all his problems and just spending it or throwing it around on people makes up for all his mistakes. To be true, he is a *** addict and a psychopath, with little regard for the feelings of the person he is involved with. Moreover, he is dominating (again the '50s) and can never let the woman have the upper hand or her opinion for that matter. His dangerous charm, good looks and devil-may-care attitude seem good on paper, but does it hold up in real life? He might be the best advertising mind out there (his only redeeming quality), but an advertisement about his skills as a boyfriend won't take off in the market anytime soon. 6. Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls): © Warner Bros. Television/Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions Ah, the messiah of bad boys! Brooding, hot and a lover of books makes Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) the perfect fictional boyfriend, but nothing can be further from the truth. Of all of Rory's boyfriends, he is the brashest and most uncouth. He is rude to everyone; his teen angst is misplaced, and his self-assuredness is annoying. His rebel without a cause attitude seems appealing only to Rory, who is blind to his emotional manipulation. He is perhaps the worst “bad boy” trope out there: exasperating the girl he is interested in until she gives in. He makes Rory break up with Dean, with his apparently nonchalant run-ins and woos her by showing how much they have in common, but once he makes her his girlfriend, he takes her for granted and starts ignoring her, doesn't call her back and becomes increasingly rude. To top it off, he tries to force her to have *** with him and gets angry when she declines and runs off to California. Though he seems to have finally turned a new leaf in the reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. 7. Rhett Butler (Gone With The Wind): © Pinterest Well, we all know that Rhett (Clark Gable)“frankly doesn't give a damn”. And he means it. A roving eye, a cavalier attitude and a megalomaniacal nature hardly come together to make a good boyfriend. But he is glib, a smooth talker and says what he means and yes, that is very sexy. That's what makes him so desirable to Scarlett O'Hara. Then again, talking is so much easier than doing, isn't it? He is prejudiced, he belittles Scarlett throughout the novel/movie, demeans her (Scarlett isn't exactly the faultless heroine either) and worries only about himself. Just like his slippery talk, his qualities and personality are also “gone with the wind”. 8. Nate (The Devil Wears Prada): © Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Selznick International Pictures The most annoying character in “The Devil Wears Prada” has to be Nate (Adrian Grenier), Andy's seemingly perfect (with a slight clothing fetish), saintly (*ahem*) boyfriend. He sulks around the screen like a petulant 5-year-old whose candy has been snatched away. His tantrums are worse than Miranda Priestly, he can easily give her a run for her money in that department. He ridicules Andy every chance he gets; about her job, demeans her job, never supports her and masks it with a veil of fake concern for her. He keeps telling her that she has changed, like that is a bad thing, because she doesn't cater to his every need like she used to. He tries to make her feel bad for choosing her career over him though he has no problem in doing the same and is angry with her when she stands up for herself. He seems very sweet and encouraging but that's a façade for his insecure personality. 9. SteveHarrington (Stranger Things): © 20th Century Fox/Fox 2000 Pictures/Dune Entertainment Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry) is the best babysitter in all of Hawkins. Fashion expert par excellence. Dedicated mother hen to the Stranger Squad.Awesome big bro to Dustin. But as a boyfriend, he is a jerk. Though he does realize his mistake later on (sadly after Nancy has moved on), his abysmal treatment of Nancy (and Jonathan) in the first season makes one's blood boil. He is one of those entitled jocks who run around making others miserable. Also, when Barb dies, he is flippant about it and his lack of emotion is appalling. The indifference about it plays a major role in Steve and Nancy's break-up. He loves Nancy but he has an odd way of showing it; he pushes her to be cool and let down her inhibitions, but he also wants to control her. He wants Nancy to be more free about herself, loosen up, but forgets that she is a reserved person and they need time to open up. As of Season 2, he has redeemed himself as a person, but not as a boyfriend. Ah well, there's still the next season. 10. Ross (Friends): © Netflix/21 Laps Entertainment Ross “We were on a break!” Geller (David Schwimmer) is the epitome of the “Nice Guy Syndrome” (A well-natured cousin of Joe Goldberg in that way). He suffers from intense jealousy, can't seem to comprehend that his girlfriend can have a life which does not revolve around him. He hangs on for Rachel for 10 years, until she gives in. People might call it persuasive and romantic, I say it is borderline stalkerish and psychopathic. He tries to justify his atrocious behaviour by blaming the people around him and tries to prove himself right on a technicality. He does not trust his girlfriends, even though he is hardly perfect. He is extremely conflicted about the possibility of being wrong and thinks himself to be blameless. Touchy about his masculinity is just another feather in his boyfriend's cap. His goofy ways are supposed to be endearing but they don't come across as extremely childish and irksome (at least to me :P). Even when he is not in a relationship with Rachel, he keeps sabotaging her relationships and behaves abominably when he finds out that she is dating Joey. 11. John Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility): © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions John Willoughby (Greg Wise) is handsome, chivalrous, classy, eloquent and can make girls go weak in the knees. He can read poetry with dramatic intensity and gusto, he can be effectively charming and speaks with unnatural grace and economy. Granted everything, that doesn't change the truth that he is a flake; a spineless gold-digger who would rather be married to an heiress than to the supposed love of his life who is penniless. He leads Marianne on, takes her on wild horse-rides, is extremely romantic with her, makes her feel that he loves her but does not tell her the truth about himself. Instead, he breaks her heart and goes off to London and ceases communication. When they meet in London again, after Marianne's unsuccessful but relentless attempts to communicate with him, he is cold and acts aloof. The reason? He has been engaged to Miss Grey, who has a formidable fortune and tells her that there was nothing between them. Classic case of “literary fuckboy”: leading on for personal gain. Not only that, he impregnates Eliza, Colonel Brandon's adopted daughter, and runs off leaving her pregnant and helpless. Not so gallant after all! 12. Lucas Scott (One Tree Hill): © Warner Bros. Television/Tollin/Robbins Productions One word: Indecisive. A total and complete jerk! No doubts on this one, please. Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) is like a child with a shiny, new toy: He knows what he wants but doesn't want to work for it. Once he gets what he wants, he doesn't want it. He cheats on his girlfriend repeatedly; does so just before proposing to Lindsay and pulls the quintessential “sleeping with the best friend” when he is with Brooke. He knows that he wants Peyton, but when he finally ends up with her, he behaves in a weird way with her. He has no remorse and is selfish, he just needs what's good for him and does not care what happens to others. Moreover, he thinks that making a grandiose speech about how he loves someone is enough to make the other person forgive him. So, there you have it. Who's the worst according to you? Tell us in the comments!
  9. The worst thing that could ever happen, happened. Instagram and Facebook were down for over eight hours. Yeah, the internet went through a dark time today. But, at least we were all in this together. Both the websites were down for everyone across the globe and not one particular area was being personally victimized. What do you do when two of the biggest social media websites are down? Turn to a third social media website, of course. Who wants to go and experience the world like people did before internet and social media? Twitter became everyone's knight in shining armour and everyone flocked to the site to complain about the other two sites. But, since it's Twitter, the complains soon turned into jokes and memes because that's just what you do on Twitter, okay. #Instagramdown and #Facebookdown started trending soon, right on track.

  10. There's no doubt that 'Black Mirror' spinoff 'Bandersnatch' was a huge success which sparked a change in the course of storytelling. Even though the concept is not new, as we have previously seen it in video games, a live-action interactive movie was a first and it seems like Netflix is looking to double-down on the strategy. © Netflix Netflix VP of product, Todd Yellin revealed that the company is looking into investing in interactive storytelling. It was first introduced via interactive kids shows a few years ago and has now been adopted by other shows like 'Black Mirror'. Even though 'Black Mirror' primarily explores the science fiction genre, Yellin added that future interactive content, “won't necessarily be science fiction, or it won't necessarily be dark. It could be a wacky comedy. It could be a romance, where the audience gets to choose, should she go out with him or him.” It would be interesting to see whether Netflix can emulate a similar experience on a different kind of show. Interactive story-telling has been seen before in books, games like 'Detroit: Become Human' and on laser-discs in the past. If you haven't checked out 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch' yet, here's how you can watch/play the movie. © Netflix We hailed 'Bandersnatch' as a game-changing storytelling format that will change how we consume content forever. You can read about our experience here and it's completely spoiler free. In order for an interactive movie or show to work, Netflix pre-caches content so that users can stream the content even with poor internet. The app pre-caches two paths every time you are faced with a choice. Due to this very reason, the interactive episode can be experienced only on supported devices such as Android smartphones, iOS devices, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and certified Smart TVs.
  11. Every year, OnePlus comes up with a new version of OxygenOS with some not-so-major tweaks. On the same lines, OnePlus is now building a new version of the software, and it's time for us to see what it may look like. The winner of OnePlus' Product Manager Challenge, Léandro Tijink, submitted some amazing renders, showing an entirely new UI and improved UX of OxygenOS. As a part of the prize for the challenge, OnePlus pledged to implement his ideas into a future version of OxygenOS. So let's take a look at some of his ideas - New & Improved Setup Menu Currently, the setup menu of OxygenOS is more or less identical to stock Android's setup menu. It looks very basic at the moment, but Tijink's design focuses on improvements to make it look more welcoming. The design, as you can see, lets you see more languages, gives you the ability to set the system-wide accent colour, and more. Take a look - © Léandro Tijink A Better Ambient Display & Lock Screen The ambient display will give you the basic information like the time, date, and notifications, and you can tap the display to get more info associated with each notification. The ambient display will also wake up to show new notifications, however, everything else will remain hidden. © Léandro Tijink As for the lock screen, there aren't a lot of changes, but there are a lot of rounded edges. It hasn't been changed all that much, and it's probably because it wasn't too bad, to begin with. OnePlus Launcher & Other Changes OnePlus Shelf, which comes as a part of the default launcher, can turn out to be very productive if used properly. Well, Tijink design imagines that space to be a lot more efficient, and hey, he made it look good at the same time. Who wouldn't want an AMOLED black mode for the shelf? Other aspects of the OxygenOS launcher also appear to be tweaked. Things like the app drawer, hidden space, and all the first-party apps have been made to look consistent with the rest of the system. © Léandro Tijink As of now, it's hard to tell which of Tijink's ideas will be implemented but OnePlus did say that it will consider Tijink's vision and add them in the future version of OxygenOS. These renders look amazing and it would be interesting to see the ones which OnePlus decides to pick. You can head over to Tijink's custom page to check out all his renders.
  12. If you're someone like me who is simply, obstinately and irrevocably stuck in the past, well, then it's moments like these that just make you feel alive! So, last night, when my fever-addled mind was trying to decide between going to bed ridiculously early or just binge something Korean on Netflix till I pass out, a notification literally had me screaming my already hoarse throat off. Mother of God, the trailer for the live-action remake of Disney's classic 'Aladdin' was finally gracing my laptop screen! I will not lie. I think I cried a little. Well, how can one not, when those opening bars with the scintillating Arabic music, take you right back to 1st grade? And that aerial market shot of the bustling Agrabah market? Perfection. So, without further ado, let's jump into the 10 moments from the trailer that almost cured my fever and then left me for dead within minutes: 1. Aladdin's Freaking Parkour Skills Yea, we all knew from the original movie that he could jump across rooftops with ease, but when you throw in those angles right in the opening shot with our boy literally flying through the air, well, excuse me while I pick up my jaw off the floor. 2. Aladdin & Jasmine's Oh-So-Filmy Yet Perfect Eye Contact Could it get any more Bollywood than this, people? Not that I'm complaining. I love me some slow-motion, frozen-in-place, googly eyes, rose-petals-floating-in-the-background, action. Just look at Al, he is a complete goner. And Jasmine...daymmmm! 3. Jafar Tempting Aladdin To Enter The Cave Of Wonders Kudos to this scene for looking legit Xeroxed from the original movie. And might I add that that giant tiger/panther/jaguar cave sounds 10 times scarier now, even though I am a fully grown adult female? 4. Aladdin Rubbing The Golden Lamp & Letting The Genie Out The cave of wonders filled with riches looks freaking brilliant, almost giving competition to Smaug's hoard in the Lonely Mountain. And yes, Aladdin's expression of pure horror and bewilderment upon letting the Genie out is on point. 5. Will 'Genie' Smith In All His Blue Glory Recreating 'Friend Like Me' Okay. Hold on. Don't even think of coming at me with your “he is so lame” comments. I will hear nothing, absolutely nothing against my man Will. He is going to nail this role so hard, all you naysayers gonna wish you had a magic carpet to fly away on. Just look and listen to this clip of 'Friend like me' and tell me it's not perfect? 6. A Glimpse Of The Awesome Song 'Prince Ali' “Prince Ali - fabulous he - Ali Ababwa”. Remember this? Genie singing as Aladdin makes his way through Agrabah to meet Princess Jasmine, decked as a Prince, in a glittering, extravagant procession along with his “seventy-five golden camels” and “ninety-five white Persian monkeys”? 7. Aladdin & Genie's Sassy Yet Hysterical Chemistry Can't stress enough but the entire movie rests on this particular element. The bromance between these two. Sure, like any purist concerned with the sanctity of the original work, I had my worries too. But the trailer assured me that I had nothing to worry. Plus, it's Will. The man has never disappointed me before! 8. A Whole New Woorrrrlllllldddddddd! Sigh. This is literally one of my all-time favourite Disney tracks and music videos. Aladdin and Jasmine starting something new as they soar about on that magic carpet...slowly falling in love...while singing...okay. Earth to Marina! Anyway, I'm gonna be belting this so hard in the movie hall, pretty sure they will have to fling me out. 9. Abu & Rajah While Rajah definitely looks super ferocious here, and not as cute as in the original, given that this is a live-action movie, Abu has managed to look mischievously adorable and still play a pivotal role in getting that lamp to Aladdin. 10. Jafar Becoming A Genie/Sorcerer This was literally a blink-and-miss shot. But what I could deduce from that second of a shot, is that this is when Jafar orders Genie to either change him into a genie himself or the greatest sorcerer in the world. Will have to wait for the movie to confirm that. So, there you have it. Now that we have broken down the trailer all the way, how about you let me know in the comment section as to which scene from the trailer was your favourite moment?
  13. It's been a while Sanjay Dutt has been MIA from the big screen (unless you count his brief appearance in his own biography 'Sanju' during the end credits). However, he's all set to return with a bang with 'Kalank' - probably the biggest multi-starrer movie this year has to offer. The teaser just launched today, and as excited as we are for it to release, Sanjay Dutt's all-black ensemble had our attention in a heartbeat. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani We love the elaborately textured sherwani paired with the super relaxed patialas. The fact that he almost never steps out like this, makes it all the more special. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani We are digging the salt and pepper (well, more of salt tbh) beard game. His buzz cut is making him look like the ultimate new age 'Khalnayak' that we all deserve. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to accessories, the black glasses and the gold sherwani buttons spell 'classy' like nothing else, and they do complete justice to the intense vibe. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is, we can't wait to see him on the big screen.
  14. Google is exploring the idea of launching a new game streaming service later this month at a Game Developers Conference presentation. We were already pretty pumped about this rumored game streaming service, but a new patent design, which shows us what Google's first controller may look like, has gotten us even more excited. © USPTO Google's patent application, as you can see, shows us the design of the controller. The patent itself is for a notification system for the controller that notifies you when, say, a game is available or when you've received an invitation. It looks like the controller can also store your account and host settings like brightness, in-game volume, and more. The illustrations don't give out much, but you can clearly see its design, complete with a dual-joystick setup, trigger buttons and more. We can also spot what appears to be a microphone button, which means we could see some sort of assistant compatibility. Also, the folks over at Yankodesign have created a series of renders based off the patent illustrations, and it looks really cool. Here, check it out: © Yankodesign It's worth pointing out that it's just a render, and the final product may look different than what you see here. Google is expected to reveal more info about its game streaming service as well as the controller at the Game Developers Conference on March 19th, so keep your eyes peeled. Source: USPTO
  15. Back in 1909, the Socialist Party of America designated 28th February as the first National Women's Day to honour the 1908 garment workers' strike in New York, where the women protested against working conditions. That day, marked a new chapter in the lives of women and, in 1975, when the United Nations began celebrating International Women's Day on 8th March, as it helped create a historic legacy of internationally-agreed strategies, standards and programmes to advance the status of women globally. Since then, the date 8th March has been a focal point in the movement for women's rights. And, this year's International Women's Day has proved to be no different. There has been a plethora of celebratory messages on social media platforms and, needless to mention the inspirational 'Google Doodle', all celebrating the achievements of women in different fields. Joining the bandwagon, India's limited-overs vice-captain - Rohit Sharma - also stressed on the need to celebrate the day with unmatched fervour and love, like any other festival. "#WomensDay has to be the most celebrated day in India!"ð From @ImRo45, @Jaspritbumrah93, @YUVSTRONG12 and every one of us at MI, a very #HappyWomensDay to all the special women out there ðð#HappyWomensDay2019 pic.twitter.com/FRIxz4TVZW — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 8, 2019 In a video shared by the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians on the social media, Rohit said: "Women's Day has to be the most celebrated day in India. The women who have played a part in my life have changed me completely. So, I think, it is important that we celebrate Women's Day as big as Diwali or any other festival that we celebrate". Our future is only as strong as our women. ð ON #womensday #Empowering #women #riseup #livepools #india @livepoolsindia #HappyWomensDay2019 #InternationalWomansDay pic.twitter.com/DUpYz4pMxh — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) March 8, 2019 On the other hand, Mumbai's new signing Yuvraj Singh also gave a heartfelt message to the fans. "They are very integral part of our life. I think without them we would be nothing. In my perspective, in my books, I really hold them in high regard. Definitely my mother, who has nurtured me over the years and kept me very safe, to my sisters as well," said Yuvraj. Apart from Rohit and Yuvraj, India's death-overs specialist Jasprit Bumrah, too, shared his views on International Women's Day. “I always feel women are way above men. They always give me strength, they always give me confidence. So, I am very happy to have them in my life. During any situation, they never feel weak. They are always there in tough times, in happier times,” said Bumrah.
  16. Realme is a very young brand and intends to take over the budget phone segment in India. They've launched a new phone every quarter in an effort to cover up every possible price bracket. The brand has been targeting its phones towards the youth and hence, focuses on performance and design the most. With the Realme 3, the brand wants to lure buyers with its powerful MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. The new processor has performed extremely well in our previous review of the Realme U1, and now it's available at an even better price. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia On the front, it has a 6.2-inch HD+ display (1520 x 720 resolution) and comes with Gorilla Glass protection. Realme claims it has achieved 88.30 per cent screen-to-body ratio thanks to a small water-drop style notch. Like we've said, the new P70 processor has four cores clocked at 2.1Ghz and boasts 15 per cent lesser power consumption when compared to previous generation offering. It also has a multi-threaded APU for AI processing. It comes in to two variants, 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The internal memory is expandable via a microSD card. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia The rear houses a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. For authentication, a fingerprint scanner is located on the back and it also supports face unlock. For low-light pictures, Realme has included a Nightscape mode that improves the quality of pictures using AI. A Chroma Boost mode also helps in producing better colour by adjusting exposure and dynamic range. For selfies, a 13-megapixel camera has been provided on the front. Backing these innards is a 4230mAh battery. The phone ships with ColorOS 6.0, built on top of Android 9.0 Pie. The software has kept many stock Android elements untouched and added features include Game Space and quick app drawer on the left. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia The 3GB + 32GB option is priced at Rs 8,999 and the 4GB + 64GB variant is priced at Rs 10,999 . Sales start from March 12thh via online channels. The phone will be going up against the recently launched Redmi Note 7, Nokia 5.1 Plus, and ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2. It'll be interesting to see how the brand is able to continue its steady rise in the country considering the competitive environment.
  17. 'Gully Boy'opened to rave reviews and immense appreciation, both at the box office and by the audience. While it was already expected that Zoya Akhtar'storytellingng will kill it with the brilliance of Alia and Ranveer mixed together, what really stood out as a brilliant surprise was the character of MC Sher, played by actor Siddhant Chaturvedi.

However, like most successful stories, Siddhant had his own share of blows and lows to reach where he is right now. He shared his story of how acting happened and what all he traded on his way up to reach this juncture with 'Humans Of Bombay'. View this post on Instagram “My father has always been fond of Cinema, so he'd take me to watch movies every Friday & my love affair with Cinema began. My dad would play Salman songs on tape & I'd dance! I even had Shahrukh's 'COOL' necklace! I was always inclined towards art-the first poem I wrote was for a girl in 9th grade. She turned me down, but I continued writing, not knowing where it'd lead. Still, my primary career option was to become a CA, like my father! So I studied, never once thinking about acting. That seed was planted when in college, I got into the drama team. I realised I loved it! But I had to leave it to focus on my CA exams. Between college & my classes–I barely slept! But I knew I had to finish my education– I was doing it for the heck of it, but once I started, I needed to reach that finish line. So I cleared my exams, just 15 marks away from the rank! If you ask me, what my biggest achievement is–it's not acting. I knew I'd achieve that, but it's passing my exams, because that's something I never wanted to do. Later, before my finals, I asked my dad for time to focus on acting. I'd go with my friends to auditions. In my first audition, they told me to 'learn how to look at the camera first & then come back.' But through it all, my dad was my true MC Sher. He said, 'be patient & don't undersell yourself ever, to always chase my dreams & he'll give me food & a roof so that I could do what I wanted. He gave me the freedom to decide & dream. So after 4 years of struggle, with more auditions & more rejections, Inside Edge happened. Because the makers had a vision which my talent fit into! After which– I met Zoya Akhtar at the success party & danced with her on Gallan Goodiyan. As fate would have it, she asked me to audition for Gully Boy, for the role that changed my life. After the release, I received a letter from Mr. Amitabh Bachchan himself & when I handed that over to my father, the biggest Bachchan fan, it was the best moment of my life. His face said it all.

  18. Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is not my relative. I know nothing about him except his name and his profession. As a matter of fact, I did not even know about his existence as of this past Wednesday. But in a matter of 48 hours, the man has managed to become something much bigger than just another Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter pilot to me. He has become a visual representation of the very hero I would envision as a kid, as I watched my father and my friends' fathers go to battle as Indian Army officers. © Twitter Earlier this week, I remember being in a particularly chirpy mood and my Instagram and Whatsapp stories were flooded with praises for the IAF on the day of the air strike on the Jaish-e-Mohammed camp in Pakistan. Oh, what a glorious moment it was. For someone like me, watching our nation's forces go head-to-head with the very evil that has been threatening our nation's security on a daily basis, and most recently snatched over 40 precious lives from us, was nothing short of spectacular. But like a tight slap on my face that I never saw coming, the next day, my phone blew up with the headlines that an Indian pilot had been 'captured' by Pakistan. And the first thought that popped in my head was not about the pilot, not about Pakistan or what they were doing to him, but it was about his family. The family of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. Look, when you live in the defence world, you find heavy terms like 'war', 'death', 'missing' and phrases like 'so sorry for your loss', 'our prayers are with you' and 'be strong' being peppered everywhere in your surroundings. It could be your own father, a younger brother, or even a classmate; and you just have to be ready for the worst, at all times. Funny thing is that no one really tells you how to prepare for the worst. There is no course given to us as kids in some secret barrack on 'what to do when your daddy/brother/friend goes to battle and may never come back'. We don't walk around discussing the potentially terrible future of our loved ones. It's a silent fear that we carry in our hearts every day and keep it locked in there, praying it remains a fear...and does not become a reality. Which is why the second I heard that an Indian pilot has been captured in Pakistan, my mind jumped to the worst possible conclusion. And when those God-awful videos popped up all over Twitter showing 'Abhi' being paraded on the streets, all bloodied and bound, surrounded by a mob clearly baying for his blood...it took everything I had to not breakdown right there on my desk in the middle of work. There he was, one of our own, almost like a family member, all alone in enemy territory, facing what looked like a gruesome death. But then another video surfaced, where the officer, still bloodied and blindfolded, was calmly addressing his captors. Yes, calmly. Not an ounce of panic in his voice. No high-pitched whimpers of a man who knows he is facing death...but a calm set of simple, straightforward words leaving his mouth. He flatly refused to answer certain questions, while being confident and composed, but still bleeding. I was stunned. Not surprised, but stunned to the core. Surely he was trained in what to do in a grave situation like that, but still, the man was displaying something I had never seen in my entire life. Something that I had only heard of from my many friends serving in the Army themselves...it was courage. Courage is a word we use so liberally in our daily lives. “Come on. Be brave. Down that flaming vodka shot!” Yes, we throw it around loosely without really thinking about the true meaning of the word. But the Wing Commander took courage to another level by showing his nerves of pure steel and maintaining his wits about himself while in enemy territory. It was nothing but a sheer display of absolute class. This instantly transported me back to school, when on one particular day, my friend and I were asked to rush to the house of another close friend. Turns out, his father was on life support after being severely wounded in a terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir, and he was leaving to see his dad that very day. My friend was visibly shaken. We, the kids, could just look at him and hold his hands while he choked back tears and crushed a Frooti pack in his palm. But what I will never forget is what his mother did that day. Aunty was sitting on the sofa, surrounded by other officers and their wives, who were consoling her and assuring her that everything was going to be okay. She was wearing white, her face was ashen and her eyes were lowered, but her head wasn't. There were no tears running down her face and she seemed to be giving polite responses to everyone. I was stunned right to my bones. How was this woman doing that? How was she, after listening to such ghastly news, still looking so unfazed? A 12-year-old me thought it was something almost rude and unnatural, but at 29, today I realise that it was a display of extraordinary courage by a brave woman. Courage to get a grip of one's emotions, especially in situations when any human can simply break down into a helpless puddle. Which is exactly what Wing Commander Abhinandan displayed while captured in enemy territory. It reminded me of the values and the belief system I was brought up in while my parents were serving. While no one really tells you these things, but somehow, as you grow into an adult, these virtues of pride and honour keep developing within you, and reflect somehow in your daily life, without you even realising it. It's something you will only see if you've lived life as a 'privileged Army brat', as some civilians fondly like to call us. The officer radiated three things while in captivity – honour, class and bravery, which I reckon should be seen as the ultimate life lessons for every youngster in this country. You will not find a book telling you how to inculcate these traits in your life, but you will just have to experience and embrace it. I miss watching these three traits in constant action around me, now that I have moved to the civil life. As for Abhi, who has now become the face of the page-turning diplomatic relations between India and Pakistan, I am pretty sure every single person across the nation is by now familiar with his name, his heroics, where he is from and how he returns home today. As the nation proudly welcomes back its son into its arms, I, a tired-old Army kid, has never been more ridiculously proud of my defence background. We are the lot that, from the outside, appear spoiled and privileged, living the 'good life'; but only we know the cost paid for those comforts. We are those few who truly know what sacrifice and courage mean, and what it takes to live a life of honour, and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, is our new-age Superman, who will forever be remembered as the man who showed the word the true class of the Indian Armed Forces, even while facing death in enemy territory.
  19. NASCAR races are extremely fun to watch. The sight of sports cars covered in sponsored logos just whizzing past in a split of a second, the sound of engines working on overload combined with the smell of burning tyres grinding against asphalt just gives a rush of adrenaline to the viewer. What makes the sport so exciting, rather nerve-wracking, is the fear of a blunder that could take place even with the slightest of nudges between the races that are going at 320 kph. Car crashes are pretty common in racing events, much like NASCAR Daytona 500 which produced one of the biggest collisions in the history of the sport. When driver Paul Menard tried to do a 'bump and run' around Matt DiBenedetto's car number 95, he nudged the rear passenger side of DiBenedetto's ride resulting in it to spin out in the middle of the race track while knocking out 17 cars in his way with the race in its last leg. Although nobody got injured during the crash, which is miraculous to say the least and Menard took complete responsibility for the entire incident, what prepares a race driver's psyche to take the hit during the smash is worth talking about. In an interview with Tampa Bay Times, NASCAR driver and one of the sufferers of the Daytona crash, Aric Almirola shares his experience. “At a certain point in the wreck, you're just kind of along for the ride. The initial instinct is to try to drive the car and avoid the wreck. Once you know that you're in the wreck, you kind of just brace for impact,” said the driver. “A lot of people take their hands off the steering wheel, but that is very unnatural for me. I keep my hands on the steering wheel. I kind of lock my elbow in and just, everything tenses up and tightens up and you brace for impact.” Amongst the first cars to get involved in the chain reaction that Menard had started, Almirola's ride (# 10) got tagged behind car #12 and almost did a somersault. Due to the momentum of the drag in favour of the car, Almirola stayed on his wheels and didn't turn over. © NASCAR In totality, the crash led to wrecking 21 cars (almost half of the contestants) but luckily not a single driver got injured. Obviously, it wasn't long before people took to Twitter to show their concerns towards the mishap and the safety of the racers: This still amazes me how big this crash was even for Daytona #NASCAR #Daytona500 pic.twitter.com/Shh7tLzp0c — Penske17 (@Penske_17) February 20, 2019 Now that's a nasty crash... #Daytona — Steve Twynstra (@SteveTwynstra) February 17, 2019 The biggest Daytona 500 crash of the whole night!!! pic.twitter.com/dvYojiuAzG — Gameoholic1994 (@gameoholic1994) February 17, 2019 Daytona 500.

  20. Think of the toughest or the hardest role possible, and for Bollywood's OG Khiladi Akshay Kumar, portraying it will still be child's play. Be it creating awareness on cleanliness and building toilets or teaching people about women's sanitary issues, Akshay Kumar has always impressed his fans with his versatility. Looks like his next movie, 'Kesari', too will be a blockbuster and the trailer that dropped today is proof. © Dharma Productions The famous Battle of Saragarhi (1891) was one of the bravest battles ever fought in the history. Decades later, Akshay Kumar is all set to recreate that battle in 'Kesari' and the 3-minute trailer speaks volumes about the valour and courage of those 21 Sikh Soldiers (of the British Indian contingent) who fought against 10,000 Afghan invaders. © Dharma Productions Talking about the trailer, the fight scenes and war sequences are brilliantly shot and the dialogues spear right through our hearts. Honestly, we are not surprised because when its Akshay Kumar, people expect nothing but the best from him. This time too, the actor has not disappointed us at all. Parineeti Chopra too has a 'blink and miss' appearance in the trailer. Directed by Anurag Singh and produced by Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar, 'Kesari' is expected to release on Holi i.e. March 21. 'Kesari' also stars Siddhant Sharma, Ashwath Bhatt, Pawan Malhotra and Rana Ranbir.

  22. If you were to pick just one muscle group to grow the best which would result in you looking muscular, what would it be? Pretty sure a lot of you would pick the biceps. But if I were to pick one, it would be the shoulders any given day. Why is that? Shoulders are the muscles that give your upper body the illusion of being big and the much desired V-taper. The V-taper is what the golden era glorified. People found the taper aesthetic and beautiful, all for a reason. © YouTube A lot of you may be doing front raises and dumbbell overhead presses but do not see any good changes in your shoulder. The main reason for this is that you are not training your shoulder for all its functions. Let's understand the functions and look at the exercises you should start incorporating if you want to build those 3D shoulders. Your shoulder muscle is made up of three different muscle fibres 1. Anterior deltoid or front delt 2. Lateral deltoid or side delt 3. Posterior deltoid or rear delt These muscle fibres have distinctive functions or movement patterns. For example: 1. The anterior deltoid enables you to perform shoulder flexion, i.e. raising your shoulders in the front of your body. 2. The lateral deltoid allows you to perform shoulder abduction, i.e. taking the shoulder away from the body at the side. 3. The posterior deltoid enables you to perform horizontal shoulder abduction, i.e. moving your shoulder away in a horizontal position. To build those 3D delts, you need to create a mechanical tension and overload it with time for all the muscle fibres that make up the shoulder. Do you get it why doing a hundred sets of front raises have not yet built your shoulders? Here are the exercises you should do to build 3D shoulders: 1. A Vertical Press © YouTube The vertical pressing has to be the bread and butter of your shoulder workout. You could pick an overhead barbell press or overhead shoulder press to activate the front delts. Data has shown that any vertical press in an incline from 30 degrees to 90 degrees activates the front delts. If you find overhead pressing difficult, you could use a high-incline dumbbell or barbell press as well. Front raises is not a good option to include in my opinion, as a lot of people simply ego lift here. Due to internal rotation during the movement, there are chances of shoulder impingement. 2. A Lateral Raise © YouTube The function of your side delt is to lift your shoulder to the side. Lateral raises are your best bet when it comes to building the side delts. You can pick any method that suits you better and that you enjoy. For example, you could pick any of the following: a. Lateral dumbbell raises b. Lateral cable raises c. Lateral kettlebell raises 3. A Rear Pull © Scott Herman Fitness Isolation exercises beat compounds when it comes to your rear delts. The exercises that help you engage your rear delts the most are: a. Rear flyes on a machine b. Face Pulls Coming to the volume and frequency to build 3D shoulders, here's what the data says: a. A minimum frequency of 2x per week b. 8 to 20 sets per muscle or 80 to 210 reps per muscle group. I would suggest including shoulders in a push-pull-legs or an upper-lower fashion and incorporating exercises for all the three muscle fibres to build 3D shoulders.

  23. When it comes down to building an amazing physique, we all admire the greatest bodybuilder of all time Arnold Schwarzenegger. His size and conditioning are one of the best in bodybuilding. Arnold had the best chest during his time. Now in this article, I will share the tips to get your chest huge and in shape like Arnold. The chest is one of the favourite body parts when it comes down to building a jaw-dropping physique. It is also one of the most difficult muscles to develop as it needs size and symmetry. © YouTube As every one of you always trains your chest once or twice per week it's really hard for most of you to get the symmetry and conditioning. While developing size and symmetry, it really comes down to choosing exercises that allow symmetrical growth in the upper chest, middle chest, and lower chest while still providing overall mass to your chest. If your chest workout is unbalanced and supports one portion of your chest over the other, over time this will lead to imbalances and take away from the aesthetics of your chest. When doing chest workouts, you need to have a solid mind-muscle connection so that secondary muscles don't take away the tension when performing chest exercises. Coming down to the anatomy to develop the chest- © YouTube The chest is divided into 3 parts: 1) Upper Chest- involves shoulder flexion. 2) Middle Chest- involves horizontal adducting movements that don't involve shoulder flexion or extension 3) Lower Chest- involves shoulder extension Things you would need to apply to grow your chest over time. 1) Progressive Overload: The magical rod to grow your muscle is progressive overload. It means that to put more tension on your muscles over time. In simple terms, to lift more weight or perform more volume than before! It is the key driver of hypertrophy. If you're progressing time to time, you'll build muscle. It has a greater impact on muscle growth than any muscle building secret. This can be achieved by increasing a rep or a set or load. (Volume= sets x load x reps) 2) Full Range Of Motion: Scientific Literature says doing full reps on a given exercise recruits more muscle fibres when compared to half reps or partial reps. Perform all your chest exercises with full range of motion. 3) Mind Muscle Connection: Remember Arnold talking about feeling and squeezing your muscles when working out? Well, there is science behind it. Mind muscle connection concept is very simple—you have to connect your mind with the muscle which you're targeting during your exercise. Mind Muscle connection can be beneficial when doing single joint movements like cable flys. A sample chest workout plan for you, which covers your entire chest: © YouTube Barbell or dumbbell bench press: 3sets of 6-8 reps Incline Dumbbell press: 3 sets of 8-10 reps Chest Double Bar Dips: 3 sets of 8-12 reps Cable Flys: 3 sets of 12-15 reps Author Bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  24. While it's safe to say that an average man is most likely to sport a printed shirt just on a tropical getaway, a recent trend boost may make you think twice. Over the last couple of years, prints on men have been making their way to the mainstream fashion world. Ranveer Singh may be the king of prints, but that doesn't mean prints have to be as maximal as he is. As more and more men embrace this trend, there is a whole world of possibilities emerging with this look. Prints can add a whole new level of edge and make your basic outfit exciting. Here's a definitive guide on what pants to wear with all kinds of printed shirts: 1. Minimal Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not all prints have to draw attention, you can go classic with paisley, gingham or polka dots. A printed shirt can even elevate a basic jeans and sneakers look, if styled well. If you're opting for print for the first time, go easy on the colour scheme. © instagram @ishabhansali Keeping it monotone and building your outfit around one colour is advisable. Keep the accessories and layers basic with either black or brown when it comes to formal wear. For casual, a basic white or black jacket and white sneakers should do your outfit justice in the most minimal way possible. 2. Hawaiian Print © instagram @diljitdosanjh Just because Hawaiian shirts are associated with being on a holiday doesn't mean these babies can't be rocked all-year round. As prints go for a modern upgrade, so do the age-old classics. Major fashion houses took a spin on Hawaiian shirts in grown-up colour schemes of black, forest green, and sand offset by pops of colour making it super trendy. © instagram @naheedee Choose a Hawaiian shirt in a slim cut, contrary to the older boxier version for a more structured fit. Pair your shirt with chinos and oxford boots for a spin on casual Friday or well-fitted jeans and sneakers for a relaxed fit. Evoke holiday vibes all through the year! 3. Floral Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not everyone dares to pull off this supposedly 'feminine' print, but it's 2019 and we need to get over these outdated gender norms for good. One can rock a floral printed shirt with a pair of rugged denims or shorts and sneakers for a casual brunch look or pair it with a solid coloured suit for understated elegance. © grazia If you can't find any other way to pair your floral shirt, black jeans will be your saviour. It's also important to pair the textures right in terms of look and feel. For example, a shiny or leather bottom won't flatter a cotton dress shirt. Go for a smaller print size or minimal colour scheme if you are a little hesitant to wear bright florals. Your style will blossom, anyway! 4. Animal Print © viral bhayani When we say animal print, Ranveer Singh's all leopard print suit comes to mind, doesn't it? As daring as it was, pulling off animal print doesn't have to be a very difficult task. Considering that these animal prints are super bold, it's best to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Sticking to basic silhouettes and pieces like chinos, classic denims and blazers are key to make your shirt the centre of attention. © instagram @ishabhansali For an understated yet classy way to pull off animal print, opt for monotone prints like zebra and pair with bold solid coloured separates. This contrast will definitely act as a welcome change from your usual take on animal print, which mostly involves warmer tones. Now go out there and rock prints like a pro!
  25. If dry skin constantly troubles you no matter how much you moisturize and have a regular skin routine in place, it's probably because of other factors like your stubborn skin type and harsh weather conditions. However, lucky for you, it is easily fixable. Here is a list of things you can do to tackle the problem of stubborn dry skin, so you never have those icky cracks breaking out in the middle of your skin surface: 1. Take Shorter, Spaced Out Showers In the Winter, long, hot showers might sound enticing, but they have a negative impact on your skin: hot water reduces the skin's moisture and further removes the natural oil in your skin that is responsible for making your skin stay soft and smooth. So, if you really want to commit to getting better skin, you need to try lowering the temperature a few notches. Secondly, limit your showers to one a day, especially in the Winter when the dry air is already harming your skin by making it dry. 2. Use Other Moisturizing Products Too © Getty Images Your grooming routine would at least comprise of soap, body wash, and body cleanser. Make sure you replace them with products that promise to hydrate your skin and lock in the moisture. 3. Moisturize Everywhere © Getty Images Hydration is not only necessary for the face and hands. You should hydrate your entire body, from your face to your feet. 4. Switch To Balms In The Winter © Getty Images Having a moisturizing routine in the Winter is great but if it's not working well for your skin in keeping it hydrated, it's time you switch up things a bit. Balms usually work better than moisturizer as there are more chances of the goodness to seep into your skin with a moisturizer instead of a cream. Petroleum jelly is also a good option. 5. If You Use The Heater Frequently In The Winter, You Also Need To: Add water in the room. Heaters tend to make the skin dry and scarred. Adding water in a bowl and or starting the steamer in one corner keeps the humidity in check. Don't forget to shut the door so the moisture stays put in the room.
