  1. Microsoft, in case you don't know, is working on developing the highly anticipated 'Halo Infinite' title. The game won't be out until the end of 2019, but we've learnt something very exciting about the development. According to reports, the budget set by Microsoft and 343 Industries for 'Halo Infinite', is reportedly more than a whopping $500 million. Yup, it looks like Microsoft handed over a blank cheque to 343 Industries for the title, making it the most expensive video game project ever. © 343industries The report comes from a German outlet called Xbox Dynasty , which says that Halo Infinite's development costs currently dwarfs even the likes of 'Red Dead Redemption 2' and 'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2', which are known to be some expensive titles. With that budget, Halo Infinite will cost more than even Marvel's upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame' movie, with an estimated budget between $300 - $400 million. Even the Infinity War was estimated to have a similar budget. It is, however, worth pointing out that this is just a rumour and Xbox Dynasty didn't provide proof to back up its claim. So, it's best if you take the report with a pinch of salt. That being said, Microsoft investing significantly into the development of Halo Infinite makes sense. Microsoft is betting big on this title for the future of gaming and its consoles. So, it's not really a surprise that they're going all in to exceed all expectations.
  2. This year, Samsung debuted a new device alongside the highly anticipated Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus called the Galaxy S10e. It's the cheapest phone of Samsung's flagship lineup this year, yet it doesn't skimp out on features. In fact, we think some Galaxy S10e features make it better than the other two flagship phones in the lineup, and here are 4 of those awesome features - 1. The Size © YouTube The Samsung Galaxy S10e is, without a doubt, one of the most compact phones to come out this year so far. Having used a lot of 'big' phones this year, we really had a great time using the Galaxy S10e. The overall footprint of the phone is so small that you can comfortably hold it in your hands. The Galaxy S10e measures just 69.9mm in height, making it short and handy phone. Also, the phone weighs just 150 grams, which makes it very light too. It's comparable to the likes of some other compact phone which we've seen in the past like the Pixel 2. 2. Infinity-O Display © YouTube The Galaxy S10e has a 5.8-inch AMOLED display on the front with a punch-hole design that houses the front-facing camera. Despite being a small-sized phone, the display looks amazing. Of course, it's a Samsung panel, so it's simply great for content consumption, be it playing games, watching videos, etc. Also, the 5.8-inch feels like the perfect size for a phone. It's neither too small nor annoying big like some other phones that are out there in the market. 3. Dual-Cameras © YouTube Yes, the Galaxy S10e lacks the triple camera setup, which both the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus have, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the S10e cameras are bad. In fact, the 12MP standard lens and the 16MP ultrawide lens are really what you need for any given scenario. These are the same sensors that you'll find on the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus, and they work exceptionally well. Here's a sample image which we shot from the phone during our testing - 4. Wireless Charging With Powershare © YouTube Wireless charging isn't exactly a new or exciting feature nowadays, but we're glad that Samsung added that to the Galaxy S10e as well. Heck, the phone even has Samsung's new Reverse Wireless PowerShare feature, with which you can charge another phone or any other Qi-compatible accessory. How cool is that? Well, that wraps up this short and simple list of Galaxy S10e features that we love the most. These are some of the features which, according to us, makes the Galaxy S10e a stellar phone despite being the most affordable of the bunch.
  3. After the most anticipated wait in cinematic history, 'Avengers: Endgame' is finally around the corner and we can't wait to book our tickets already! Recently John Russo, one of the directors of 'Avengers: Endgame' was in the country, Mumbai to be precise, for the launch of the Marvel anthem composed by A.R Rahman and he revealed some interesting trivia he knows and keeps on Bollywood. © TOI Bollywood has a cult following across the world now. With its stark flamboyancy, colours that can give you a headache and songs that can probably mesmerise you, it's no surprise that Hollywood looks towards the East to draw some parallel inspiration every once a while. Well, Russo does the same. In an interview with a popular publication, Russo revealed how he loved watching Bollywood cinema when he found the time and that his favourite movies were 'Dabangg' and 'Robot'. This was definitely something we didn't expect. The Marvel Cinematic Universe director watching 'Dabangg'? Really? But he revealed that he loved the way the action sequences were shot and that he was a Salman admirer (like we don't have enough around already!) © Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd When Russo was asked where he caught these films, he said over the years he'd been watching a lot of fun stuff in the edit rooms, but these movies were mostly seen when he was on an aeroplane, off to his travels. “For the last seven years, I have been able to watch a lot of stuff other than these movies in the edit room. But when I get into airplanes and I have to travel a lot, I like to catch up on movies, especially global cinema,” he said. “I remember reading about 'Dabangg' so when I got into the plane, it was on there and I watched it and I loved it. I loved the camera work and the tone. It's very entertaining. It reminded me of some of the work we did in Community,” © Twitter He also mentioned how Rajinikanth's 'Robot' influenced 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' and that's the kind of revelation every Bollywood filmmaker needs to hear! Well, post this revelation from his end, he was asked the most pertinent question ever. Since he'd seen both Rajinikanth and Salman in action, he was asked what characters they would play best from the Avengers and to that he took no time to say Rajinikanth would perfectly fit the bill as Iron Man and Sallu would play the Hulk for sure! I mean wow, he'd probably envisioned the two as Stark and the Hulk when he saw their movies, in all probability. While I agree Rajini would kill it as Tony, Sallu's a little too damaged to fit into any superhero profile, even if it's the Hulk! But Russo knows best I guess. © Twitter While Russo met all his fans in India, he had come alone and not with the 'Endgame' ensemble. However, Chris Hemsworth who plays Thor, Paul Rudd who plays Ant-Man and Josh Brolin who plays Thanos sent rather endearing messages to all their fans in the country and expressed their wish to be here with the director. © Walt Disneys Atudio Motion pictures 'Avengers: Endgame' is out on the 26th of April 2019 and it will be the end of a decade-long journey the Avengers have had and hence, it's the most anticipated film of the year. We're gearing up for the big release already, are you?
  4. 1. Exfoliation Is Key © Getty Images © Getty Images There are exclusive face scrubs in the market for men in any departmental store or even online. Form a habit of using the scrub right before you shave every time. Dab some on your fingers and gently work it on your face. This not only helps with making the shave smooth and removes tan as well. 2. Witch Hazel As A Toner © Getty Images Witch hazel as a toner comforts the skin after a close shave and prevents nicks. You'll be surprised by realizing how the number of nicks you usually get begin going down once you start using this. 3. Moisturizing Is Key © Getty Images Sometimes, your daily moisturizer can be your best aftershave if you don't want to spend extra money on an aftershave. Dab it on your fingers and work it gently with your fingertips and see the difference. 4. The Cold Water Hack © Getty Images Here's a secret: post-shave, never wash your face with the same hot/lukewarm water you used while taking a shower. Instead, wash your face with cold water as it will close your pores and immediately tighten your facial skin. This means fewer wrinkles so you don't have to worry about ageing. 5. Keep The Strokes Short © Getty Images One hack that you might be aware of already is that you should always keep your strokes short. Instead of going for long-drawn-out strokes, go for short sharp strokes for a clean cut. 6. Substitute Baby Oil For Shaving Cream © Getty Images If you've run out of both shaving cream and hair conditioner, do it in the shower while using lukewarm water. That will open up your pores, soften the tough bristles of your whiskers and give a close shave. 7. For Nicks And Cuts Use Fitkaris © Getty Images Fitkari is extremely handy for nicks and cuts, better than using a tissue paper! You can even use a pinch of lip balm. Just dab some on the cut and you're good to go. 8. Wear The Shaving Cream For At Least Five Minutes © Getty Images A good hack to avoid razor burns is to let the shaving cream sit for at least five minutes. This prevents the red spots from coming back. It works better if you use a quality shaving cream as opposed to foam.
  5. Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy' is undoubtedly one of the biggest hits of 2019, which turned everyone into a rapper, a skill people didn't know they had until they saw the movie. This movie also marked Ranveer Singh's debut as an epic rapper, who introduced the world to 'Asli Hip Hop'. While people can't stop praising Ranveer Singh's flawless performance in the movie, there's another guy whose inspiring story deserves to be heard and must hog the limelight. The story of Naezy aka Naved Shaikh, the real-life 'Gully Boy' on whose life Ranveer's character was supposedly based on. Instagram From being an underdog rapper on the streets of Mumbai to making it big and finding success in the world of hip hop, Naezy bares it all about his life in a 'Humans of Bombay' post and how different it was from the movie. "I was born & brought up in Kurla, an infamous area. My family was full of academics, but I was different. I had an 'adventurous' childhood–I'd spend all day with my friends doing the craziest things! I'd hustle hard to get money from anywhere possible–I'd search & sell unused things for cash! I never let my family see this side of me, but they realised what I was up to." Instagram Naezy loved writing and once he got introduced to the 'rap culture', there were fireworks. "I had to study BSc, but I used that time to focus on Hip-Hop–I had so much to say; my songs were unsaid words from dusty street corners," he said. When he recorded his first song 'Aafat', it went viral. The song was loved by people, but his family was furous as they never wanted him to pursue rapping as a career. "Eventually, I got more offers, but kept missing out because of family restrictions. Just when I thought all was lost, I recorded 'Mere Gully Mein' & everything changed. That song was what made Zoya Akhtar approach Divine & I for Gully Boy," he further added. Instagram When someone says, this movie is based on someone's life we instantly assume that everything shown in the movie is factually accurate. We fail to realise that some things are fictional, like it was in 'Gully Boy'. "But not everything in it is true–there's no 'Saifeena' & my dad doesn't have 2 wives! But it showed the audience my roots; the reality of every street rat out there. Looking back, I can't believe I'm here!" View this post on Instagram “I was born & brought up in Kurla, an infamous area. My family was full of academics, but I was different. I had an 'adventurous' childhood–I'd spend all day with my friends doing the craziest things! I'd hustle hard to get money from anywhere possible–I'd search & sell unused things for cash! I never let my family see this side of me, but they realised what I was up to. My mom took care of us because my dad was in Dubai. She said the only way I'd improve was if I stayed away from my friends. I changed schools & houses, but the streets never left me. I found my way back, through Hip-Hop. I loved writing, but hadn't been introduced to 'rap culture' before, so I began researching. It was like a fire burned within me! I had to study BSc, but I used that time to focus on Hip-Hop–I had so much to say; my songs were unsaid words from dusty street corners. But who'd give a 'gully boy' a break? I decided to wait for nobody & record my first song, 'Aafat' on an iPad–it went viral! People loved me! But when my family saw the video–they were furious. They'd never let me pursue rapping as a career–I recieved love & support from everyone except them. It was heartbreaking. Eventually, I got more offers, but kept missing out because of family restrictions. Just when I thought all was lost, I recorded 'Mere Gully Mein' & everything changed. That song was what made Zoya Akhtar approach Divine & I for Gully Boy. But not everything in it is true–there's no 'Saifeena' & my dad doesn't have 2 wives! But it showed the audience my roots; the reality of every street rat out there. Looking back, I can't believe I'm here! There was a time when my friends & I'd bunk school to come to the Queen's necklace & look for coins on the street to have kulfi. Today, I've performed at Wankhede & was given a hotel room overlooking the necklace! I was on top of the world! Still, in that moment of joy, I felt heartbreak like never before because I couldn't share it with my parents. All of this success is stale without their acceptance...without their love. I wish they could see how far I've come, but I won't let this break me. I'll keep trying...Apna Time Kabhi Toh Aayega!” A post shared by Humans of Bombay (@officialhumansofbombay) on Apr 1, 2019 at 6:11am PDT Although he is experiencing fame and joy, it's heartbreaking for him because he couldn't share it with his parents. "All of this success is stale without their acceptance...without their love. I wish they could see how far I've come, but I won't let this break me. I'll keep trying...Apna Time Kabhi Toh Aayega!"
  6. Salman Khan, or 'Bhai' as he is lovingly called in Bollwood, is not only known for his movies but for his extravagant habit of indulging in expensive assets. Here are 9 such assets owned by 'Bhai' which is making us fel very poor compared to him: 1. Gorai Beach home Mumbai beaches do not provide the Khan family with any exclusivity towards the beach so Salman 'bhai' has a legit gorgeous 5 BHK beach home which he bought on his 51st birthday. The insane property is spread across 100 acres and has a gym, a big swimming pool, a theatre, and the sea-facing bungalow also reportedly has a dirt bike arena for some more fun. As per reports, this cost him close to a Rs 100-crore hole in his pocket. © Instagram 2. Panvel Farmhouse This place is the resident party place for the family's parties for their friends. This place is spread lavishly over 150 acres of land and besides the usual gorgeous room, a gym, a swimming pool and all that jazz, this farm also house horses and other domesticated animals. Reportedly, this came with a price tag of some Rs 80 crore. 3. Triplex Flat In Bandra The Khan family currently resides in the famed 'Galaxy Apartments' but Salman Bhai invested in this 11-storey building which is currently under construction. Rumour has it that the family might shift into this Rs 30 crore abode here once it's done. 4. Private Yacht Obviously, all the jet set getaways to Alibaug and travelling to their beach homes require a wonderful private yacht by the Khan family. Reportedly, Salman and his bhais have a yacht which cost him a whopping Rs 3 crore. © Instagram 5. Fleet Of Cars Salman has a wonderful collection of cars, courtesy his travel in Mumbai and the entourage that travels with him. His garage is overflowing with cars like the Mercedes Benz GL Class (approx. Rs 80 lakh), Mercedes Benz S Class ( approx Rs 82 lakh), an Audi A8 L (approx. Rs 1.13 crore), the BMW X6 (around Rs 1.15 crore,) a Toyota Land Cruiser (approx Rs 1.29 crore), the Audi RS7 (approx Rs 1.4 crore) and a Range Rover (over Rs 2.06 crore), an Audi R8 (costing around Rs 2.31 crore) and also a Lexus LX470 (approx Rs 2.32 crore). PHEW! 6. Crazy Expensive Bikes Salman Bhai owns the gorgeous Hayabusa which cost him over Rs 16 lakh. Along with that, he owns the Yamaha R1 which is around Rs 15 lakh, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000Z which costs Rs 16 lakh and the Suzuki Intruder M1800 RZ which is around Rs 16 lakh. 7. Super Expensive Bicycle Bhai is often spotted on Mumbai streets bicycling his stress away. Now, one would wonder an expensive bicycle would cost around a lakh or so but his Giant Propel 2014 XTC is over Rs 4 lakh. Yepp, 'shauq badi cheez hai'! © Instagram 8. Being Human Brand The brand has Salman Khan as the prime owner and is estimated to be valued for over Rs 235 crore. © Instagram 9. Production Company Salman ventured into production with his movie 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' and launched his banner SKF. He has co-produced numerous movies since then.
  7. If mothers are an epitome of love, warmth, and affection; fathers are sometimes the exact opposite! They might troll you in front of your friends, but will also turn into your biggest cheerleaders and at times, go simply overboard with excitement. From cheering at the top of their voice to moving mountains (if needed) if they try to block their way while making a video, fathers are the best people you need in your life and watching them do their 'dad thing' is priceless. And Amitabh Bachchan, too, did the most dad thing ever when his daughter Shweta Bachchan walked the ramp at a recent fashion show. View this post on Instagram To the best .. always .. tonight elegance grace and dignity ðð A post shared by Amitabh Bachchan (@amitabhbachchan) on Mar 24, 2019 at 1:09pm PDT Shweta Bachchan, who recently launched her own brand, was walking the ramp with Karan Johar for Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. Big B was attending the show with Jaya Bachchan and the moment Shweta came on the ramp, he took out his phone to record it. Honestly, he reminded us of our parents at our Annual Day celebrations in school, back in the day when the Kodak reel cameras were a thing. But, that's not even the best thing about the video. The best moment was when he apparently whistled at the videographer, to ask him to move as he was blocking his view and once he shifted he continued making the video (zooming in and zooming out in between). View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Mar 24, 2019 at 11:31pm PDT After watching this video, our dads be like "Yeah bro! Been there, done that." On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan whose latest flick 'Badla' was a super hit at the box-office, is now gearing up for his next movie 'Brahmastra' that also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
  8. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) underway in full steam, we are bound to see many new-comers who will make a name for themselves and go on to earn laurels. Established youngsters such as Prithvi Shaw and Shubhman Gill, who are already in the limelight, can be the ones to replace the current Indian squad in the coming two to three years. These are the predicted top five youngsters who own the skills and determination to make it to the Indian team by the next World Cup, that is in 2023. 1. Prithvi Shaw (Delhi Capitals) © TOI The young Mumbai lad, Prithvi Shaw, is all set to make a comeback in the limelight of Indian Premier League under Delhi Capitals. Having a wonderful debut last year in the league, overshadowing Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and many other stars, Shaw definitely made a name for himself and got retained by the side during the 2019 IPL auction. Giving some prolific performances for the Indian Test side and that too at the age of just 18 is another proof of why he is referred to as the 'Next Master Blaster' of Indian cricket. Despite his worth still to be proven in limited overs cricket, he remains our top contender to make it to the Indian squad in the coming years, especially for ICC World Cup 2023. 2. Shreyas Iyer (Delhi Capitals) © Instagram The captain of the domestic as well as the IPL team of Delhi, Shreyas Iyer, is known to be the man of focus as this IPL season kicks off. Replacing Gautam Gambhir's leadership of Delhi Capitals since last year, Iyer has flowered as a captain and a better player too. From scoring in IPL to playing some great knocks for India A, the 24-year-old Mumbai lad has been in a prime form which if continues, will provide him with the great opportunity to support Virat Kohli by the World Cup 2023. 3. Shubhman Gill (Kolkata Knight Riders) © Instagram Soon after the arrival of Shaw, Shubman Gill became the next big thing to be talked about in the Indian cricket circuit. The 19-year-old batsman from Punjab is completely determined to achieve big things in international cricket and has continued to deliver consistently whenever the opportunity is provided. Ever since his phenomenal performance in the ICC U-19 World Cup 2018 in New Zealand, Shubman has been knocking at the door of the senior team. After being declared as the 'Player of the Tournament' during the2018 U-19 World Cup, he has been hailed by the experts as a player to watch out for. Getting an early entry into the Indian team and sharing the dressing room with big shots like Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn and Andre Russell for the Kolkata Knight Riders, Gill will definitely gain more knowledge of how to become a mature player. In the next few years, we will be seeing some major transformations in the youngster and we hope he goes on to break many records and might get us the 2023 World Cup too. 4. Mayank Agarwal (Kings XI Punjab) © Instagram “International cricket has made me calmer” was a statement given by Mayank Agarwal in an interview to Hindustan Times on Sunday. Having scored 2141 runs for the domestic team of Karnataka in the 2017-18 season and 3472 runs in 70 India-A matches, Agarwal's long wait of getting into the Indian team ended in December last year. Called to Australia as a replacement for Rohit Sharma, the 28-year-old was finally selected for the Boxing Day Test at the MCG, where he responded with a brilliant 76, the highest score by an Indian debutant in Australia, and a 42 in the second innings. Now, making a comeback after his thumb injury for Kings XI Punjab, he seems all set to show the entire world what he is made of. Regardless of all the difficulties and drawbacks that he has had, we would still opt him as our favourite to showcase in World Cup 2023. 5. Mayank Markande (Mumbai Indians) © Instagram 21-year-old Mayank Markande, recently added an achievement to his resume as he received his maiden call-up for the India T20I squad against Australia. Playing for Mumbai Indians and sharing the dressing room with legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahela Jayawardene, will surely be helpful to the young leggie. Keeping World Cup 2023 in mind, it will be interesting to see how young Markande fills the shoes of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.
  9. Weekend - that is honestly our only survival strategy from one week to another as we slog our way through hours of stubbing at the keyboard at work. Fridays come bearing a new lease of life post 3 pm when we can almost taste the weekend settling into the fine lines of our lips. The next 32 hours are buzzing with activity and all things LIT that we had been “eagerly looking forward” to the entire week. However, as soon as Saturday night makes its arrival felt, the Sunday dread begins to claw into us at the subconscious level. And once we are greeted by Sunday, there is no looking back. The reality of facing another week of same old drudgery can be pretty jarring, but that need not be your continual reality for the next 25-30 years at all. Try these 7 quick, easy and really effective things to do on a Sunday that can ensure that your week ahead goes real smooth and easy to the max. 1. Detox Your Desktop (c) Thinkstock-Getty Images Declutter your work desktop and prep it for the upcoming week by deleting the junk and placing the others into classified folders. Free up that space and increase your efficiency at work. 2. Start A New Series (c) HBO Sunday binging didn't become a craze for nothing. People swear by it because it works. It gives you something that you can look forward to without expending a lot of your energy. 3. Plan Your Outfits (c) Thinkstock-Getty Images This may sound silly on paper, but try giving this a chance and you will witness your life take a 360 degree turn. Pick up those outfit pairing, iron them and keep them ready. No last minute rushing ever again! 4. Have A Family Night (c) Thinkstock-Getty Images Goes without saying. The rest of the work week passes us in a blur, and most often than not we never get a chance to just sit down and spend quality time with our family. Doing something together or not doing anything, it doesn't matter. As long as you have their company it'll be relaxing. 5. Set Priorities (c) Thinkstock-Getty Images While plans work only 90 percent of the time, it is still advisable to have an idea of the things that need to be on priority, both at work as well as your personal life. It makes life a lot less chaotic, and prevents you from making goof ups like forgetting to get a birthday gift for your sister's baby girl. 6. Set Up A Task List (c) Thinkstock-Getty Images A to-do list is a must in today's time and age of multitasking. While we constantly juggle between our assignments, meetings, targets on one hand and numerous other responsibilities otherwise, a task list always comes handy. It allows your brain to take a break because you have it all written down in one place. 7. Recharge (c) Thinkstock-Getty Images That means sleeping in or retiring to bed early on Sundays. It helps set the body clock back after the previous two crazy nights. Also, it allows the brain and body to get enough rest, and refuel for the upcoming week, which is something we all need.
  10. When it comes to Bollywood, we guess we all can agree that our filmmakers have come a long way from where they began, and have given us some truly amazing movies in recent time. BUT, then there are some movies that are so senseless that their very existence makes us question our faith in Bollywood. However, not all of them are bad when you are high on 'bhaang' and want to waste your time doing nothing but watch a movie where you don't need logic. Since it's Holi today, we decided to share a list of movies that only make sense or you can sit through, after having a nice dose of good old 'bhaang'. 1. Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahaani Everything the writers thought was right was exactly what was wrong with the film - right from the CGI, costumes, storyline, huge list of actors, a ghost bride to the main lead turning into a snake, car, bike...truck, bus, ship, a walking flamethrower and every possible thing imaginable. Shankar Movies Manisha Koirala singing 'Aaja' was probably us asking our brains to come back. 2. Love Story 2050 Hrithik Roshan's doppelganger falls in love with Priyanka Chopra's character, who dies in an accident. To bring her back he decides to go back in time but instead, gets transported to 2050. If only he could have brought back some logic in that same time machine, things would have been easier for the ones watching it. Baweja Movies 3. Aap Kaa Surroor: The Moviee - The Real Luv Story Don't ask about logic here because it's as pointless as the number of ee's and aa's in the movie name. All we know is that the movie was shot in Germany and the writer made sure that everyone remembers this by the end of the movie. Also, since when did Germany have Indian auto rickshaws and why were we not told about this? Mehboob Studio 4. What's Your Raashee? After watching this I am sure a lot of us asked ourselves, "What's my IQ?" Again, the movie stars Hrithik's doppelganger Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra in the lead. The movie is basically about Harman meeting one woman from every zodiac sign so that he can decide whom to marry. Wow! If weddings were this twisted, half the people would have gone bald scratching their heads. UTV Motion Pictures 5. Action Replayy The film is based on 'Back To The Future' and features Aditya Roy Kapur as a son who travels back in time to make his parents fall in love with each other. Another time-travel movie where the script only led us to the time machine and nothing else. Blockbuster Movie Entertainers 6. Cash What started off as a diamond heist soon turns into a vicious battle where everyone was fighting everyone. The characters were fighting for their lives, the audience was fighting to get their money back and our brain was fighting for sitting through that. Seven Entertainment Ltd. 7. Fool N Final The only thing this movie gave us is the fact that gangsters' names can be weirder than a Bengali child's 'daak naam'. Moscow Chikna, Gunmaster G9...seriously? We won't blame you if you forgot about this movie's existence. Shemaroo Entertainment 8. Himmatwala All we have to say about this one is that if you manage to sit through the whole movie you're the real himmatwala. Also, it's not your bro, but a tiger who's the best wingman in the whole world. UTV Motion Pictures 9. Rudraksh Bipasha Basu plays a paranormal researcher, who's trying to gain "knowledge that cannot be explained by science or logic", which pretty much explains the whole movie. Off all the characters in the movie, it was the laser-shooting eyed CGI rat we felt really bad for. Karma Entertainment 10.

  11. Over the years we have come to think of Ajay Devgn as being synonymous to Bollywood's most sought-after action hero. Sure, Akshay Kumar is also a leading name in the category, but when it comes to someone who has been acing each and every role in this category, we can only think of Devgn. Ajay made the entire country eat out of his hands when he first graced the screen as Bajirao Singham, the righteous and daring cop who would go to the end of this world to bring the culprits to justice. View this post on Instagram What do you think are they telling each other? A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Jan 19, 2019 at 8:57am PST We have loved him and his daredevilry in the 'Singham' series, and feel that no one could have done it better than the man himself, but as per latest reports, it seems Ajay is all set to explore other aspects and roles in the action category and he will next be seen portraying the role of an IAF Wing Commander in the film titled 'Bhuj: The Pride Of India'. The film is reportedly based on true incidents, wherein Ajay will be seen essaying the role of Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik who was in charge of the Bhuj airport during the Indo-Pak war in 1971. The airstrip was destroyed by Pakistani air strikes and Karnik mobilised 300 local women to rebuild it for the Indian Air Force aircrafts to make a safe landing. Karnik played a pivotal role in helping keep the airstrip operational amidst heavy bombing from Pakistan. View this post on Instagram mood A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Jul 7, 2016 at 9:57am PDT The film has been written, and will be directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya and talking about Vijay Karnik and the feat he achieved during the war, producer Bhushan Kumar told the media, “This courageous tale needs to be told because we want the current and the coming generation to know about this brave soldier, Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, who played a significant role in India's victory in the 1971 war. He was heroic enough to take this bold step of involving civilians in a war. Also, who better than Ajay Devgn for the role of Vijay Karnik?” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Jun 6, 2016 at 7:26am PDT Karnik recalled the events from the eventful incident and he is glad that Ajay has agreed to play his character in the film. Talking to the media he said, “We were fighting a war and if there had been any casualties of any of these women, it would have been a great loss. But I took the decision and it worked out. I had briefed them where they could take shelter if attacked and they followed it bravely. Also, I could only see Ajay Devgn essaying my character and I'm glad that he's on board.” We can't wait for this one.
  12. The moment someone mentions Bollywood, the first thought that comes to our mind is the luxurious lifestyle of our beloved celebrities lead, the crazy fame and fan-following they enjoy and of course, the insane amount of money they earn per film. But, it's very rare when someone shows us the other side of the coin. A side which is dark and filled with thorns, miseries and struggles. Meet Savi Sidhu, whose story is a reflection of how unpredictable an actor's life can be. A man who was once an actor is now working as a security guard. © YouTube For most of us, Savi Sidhu might be a name we are hearing for the first time, but this man had once shared the screen with Akshay Kumar, Dimple Kapadia and Rishi Kapoor in 'Patiala House'. He has also worked in movies like 'Gulaal', 'Black Friday' and 'Bevakoofiyan'. He played Commissioner Samra in 'Black Friday'. But, today the man does not even have money to buy movie tickets. Now, Savi Sidhu is working as a security guard and a video featuring his life story was recently shared on YouTube. © YouTube The video begins with him talking about how Bollywood happened to him. "Anurag Kashyap mile, struggle karte karte toh mujhe Paanch mei liya, unki jo pehli film thi release nahi hui. Uske baad unhone mujhe 'Black Friday' mei liya, one of the main characters that is Commissioner Samra ka role kiya maine then unke sath maine 'Gulaal' bhi kari. Maine Yash Raj, Subhash ji ke sath, Nikhil Advani ke sath 'Patiala House' kari." While talking about his toughest phase, Sidhu who does a 12-hour shift as a security guard in a housing society said, "Sabse tough phase wo tha when I lost my wife". After that, he lost his father, mother and in-laws too. Eventually, he became alone, "akela hote hote alone". © YouTube Today he does not even have the money for bus tickets and watching a movie has become a distant dream for him. "Bohot filme miss kar raha hoon... dekhne ka mann karta hai par meri financial position aisi hai", he further added. Sidhu does not blame Bollywood for his struggle, "Kaam ki kabhi problem nahi hui. Mujhe hi chhodna pada ki mai nahi kar pa raha hoon. You know... it was like kya mere liye wait kar raha hai... yaha jaise logo ko kaam milta nahi aur mere pas itna kaam hai ki mai kaam nahi kar pa raha. Meri financial problems bhi badh gayi, health problems bhi badh gayi toh kaam khatam ho gaya." Although Sidhu might be going through one of the toughest times of his life, he is still hopeful that one day he is going to come back to Bollywood with a bang, and we hope that we get to see him on the big screen once more.
  13. Apparently Bollywood looked at the incredible Marvel Cinematic Universe and said, “I want some of that”. But, who needs superheroes when you have cops? Rohit Shetty is obviously THE guy who makes cop movies in Bollywood and has made three box office hits and 100 crore club movies with 'Singham', 'Singham Returns', and 'Simmba'. Now, he wants to tie all of the movies together in one Cinematic Universe and he has already started that process with Akshay Kumar's cameo in 'Simmba' as a way to introduce his character Veer Sooryavanshi for his own upcoming movie. Much like MCU's 'Captain Marvel', Rohit Shetty now also wants to have a female cop added to his 'Singham Cinematic Universe' after the release of 'Sooryanvanshi' starring Akshay Kumar. During a panel discussion at the FICCI Frames 2019, he said, “Soon we will be making it. We have a story in mind. We will do it definitely. We will take a year or so but we plan to do that to complete the universe.” He went on to explain his inspiration behind this cinematic universe, which was obviously Marvel. He also added that big-budget superhero movies are not really a possibility in the Hindi film industry at the moment. “Whatever happens in America, Hollywood, happens here ten years down the line. That's been the theory always. When I was watching the Avengers series I got an idea that why don't we create a universe. Obviously we don't have the kind of budget to make many super heroes movies year after year. Then I thought to make a cop universe from Simmba onwards.” He added, “I was a bit scared before the release of Simmba because this was happening for the first time in our country. I knew that youngsters and kids will know, because they have seen Avengers, but our mature audience hasn't seen that. I had doubts merging two worlds, but it worked big time.” Well, good for you, Mr Shetty! Let's just hope this doesn't really ruin MCU for us.image4
  14. 'Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein' was the movie that gave us a bashful but talented actor R Madhavan, and he is all set to start his directorial debut, finally. After a successful stint in Bollywood with films like 'Tanu Weds Manu' and '3 Idiots', the Tamil movie actor has decided to venture in to direction and will be churning out a multi-lingual film soon, in which he'll be acting too. © Pinterest 'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect', which will be based on the life story of Nambi Narayan, the space scientist and aerospace engineer will be Madhavan's directorial debut film and we're really looking forward to knowing how good the actor is with his directing skills. But that's not all. We hear that Bollywood's Baadshah- Shah Rukh Khan is playing a cameo in the hind version of the film, while the Tamil star Suriya will be playing a cameo in the Tamil version of the film. © Pinterest Though we aren't sure of the rest of the cast just yet, all we know is Madhavan has roped in SRK to have a small surprise stint in the film, which will probably give it the edge it needs. And apart from that, he himself is donning the role of the scientist Nambi Narayan. So far, the look that Madhavan's working on, for the film, bears an uncanny resemblance to the Indian scientist and we can't wait to watch how he portrays him in the film, as well. © Instagram I was advised to use this during the promotion of Rocketry or get a brand onboard to monetize it but I couldn't.. cause I owe it to all you lovely people who are worried as I was..BELIEVE —getting fitter is all in the mind.BELIEVE #Rmadhavan #actormaddy #rocketeyfilm #Nambinarayanan #Tricolourfilms #Vijaymoolan #Dramatictransformations #Believeyoucan #14daychallange A post shared by R. Madhavan (@actormaddy) on Mar 10, 2019 at 10:20am PDT The film will be released in English, Hindi and Tamil and is shot all across India, Scotland, Russia and France and its release date is set for the second half of 2019. After 14 hrs on the chair.. Who is who is WHO???ððððð #rocketryfilm @tricolourfilm @media.raindrop @vijaymoolan A post shared by R. Madhavan (@actormaddy) on Jan 21, 2019 at 9:32pm PST Well, we hope the film is out sooner than anticipated because this one's going to be a good watch for 2019 and with SRK and Suriya giving a special appearance, we're sure the movie will be worth the wait.
  15. One of the better football clubs in the history of the sport, with a massive following of diehard fans who take their game very seriously, Real Madrid have found themselves to be in a bit of a slump ever since Portuguese fame Cristiano Ronaldo decided to say goodbye to the Spanish club to play in Italy for Juventus back in July 2018 for a massive €100 million contract. Ronaldo's move followed his then manager Zinedine Zidane's decision to quit the team last year. Ever since, the management of Los Blancos has shifted thrice in less than a year. First was Julen Lopetegui, who was brought as a compensating replacement of the French superstar but was quickly fired after Lionel Messi's Barcelona defeated them in a humiliating 'El Clasico' match up. Next came Santiago Solari, the pride of Argentine football under whose interim reign, Real Madrid saw very little to no improvement. They crashed out of Copa del Rey and lost all hopes of winning the UEFA Champions League for the fourth consecutive time after a depressing 1-4 loss to Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) in the Round of 16. Now that Florentino Pérez, Real Madrid President, has decided to bring Zidane back to Santiago Bernabeu while letting go of his disagreement with the Frenchman, the franchise hopes to bring back its glory days. But, the real question is, will Zidane be able to help Los Blancos become the entity they used to be during the 'Ronaldo Era' without Ronaldo? Till now, the experiments Lopetegui and Solari tried, all of them crashed and burned while the club continued to spiral. On the other hand, the man that Madrid fans put their trust into in the absence of Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, has not only failed to step into the Portuguese's shoes but has also made no improvements to his game like he said he would if CR7 wasn't there. The fans of the club feel the same way as they took to Twitter to show their concerns about Zindane's success without Cristiano Ronaldo: I want to see if Zidane was the one who lead Real to fame or was it Cristiano Ronaldo all a long pic.twitter.com/WiJn0P8ukA — Will ™ ð¬ð§âï¸ (@ftblWilll) March 11, 2019 He is back, but can Zidane do it without superstar Ronaldo at Real Madrid pic.twitter.com/ruNjR5tba6 — BrandonKB (@chiseledout) March 12, 2019 Zidane's tactics without Ronaldo pic.twitter.com/yfKMPGan0A — Juanito Lucha Libre (@FrankSno9) March 11, 2019 Zidane's tactics without Ronaldo pic.twitter.com/yfKMPGan0A — Juanito Lucha Libre (@FrankSno9) March 11, 2019 Is it just me who thinks that Zidane coming back to Real won't change anything. Fact is they have an ageing squad and NO RONALDO NO PARTY. pic.twitter.com/RwaubcSbfr — Saman Dhawan (@DhawanSaman) March 11, 2019
  16. Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India and its first sale is scheduled for March 13. We've been using the phone for a few days now and it sure gives the competition a run for their money. The Note 7 Pro's starting price has been fixed at Rs 13,999 for the 64GB variant and Rs 16,999 for the 128GB variant. What's so special about this phone? We've made a list of things we love about the phone. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia 1. Near Perfect Camera: Xiaomi has been teasing the 48MP camera for months and it is the main highlight of the phone. The rear has a Sony IMX586 sensor paired along with a 5-megapixel secondary camera. Thanks to the high resolution, pictures have an incredible amount of detail. For low-light pictures, four pixels are merged into one and a 12-megapixel picture is created that has lower more detail and sharpness. 2. Camera Software: Using AI, not only can the phone add a bokeh effect but also completely change the background into 6 presets. After a preset is applied, you can also further change the type of lighting overlay. This opens up the option of having much more customization and using the same depth sensor, newer edits can be applied. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia 3. Stunning Design: The Redmi Note 7 Pro has an all-glass design with a gradient finish. The company says it has used a 6-layer process to add the gradient finish and it is available in Neptune Blue, Nebula Red, and Classic Space Black. Not only has Xiaomi built the phone like a beast from the inside, but also equally stunning from the outside. 4. MIUI 10: The phone ships out of the box with MIUI 10 (Android Pie) and brings in gesture support, picture-in-picture mode, new recent menu, and AI performance enhancements. Thanks to the faster processor, the experience is even more smooth and refreshing. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia 5. Better Display: The phone has a 6.3-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and features a smaller notch on the top. Xiaomi has further cut down on bezels and it also gets a 2.5D curved glass. The screen-to-body ratio has been improved to 81.4 per cent. 6. Faster Processor: © Qualcomm It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor built on TSMC's 11nm manufacturing process. The device comes with an Adreno 612 GPU. The new SoC employs software “gaming enhancements” that promise up to 90 per cent fewer stutters. Qualcomm enables the hardware and software to support both bokeh (portrait modes) and HDR shots in a single shot. 7. Battery: It has a 4000mAh battery and the phone finally ships with USB-C. The phone supports Quick Charge 4 but it comes bundled with a 10W charger. The battery is sufficient to get you through a day's heavy usage.
  17. Spotify's silent launch in India last week sent out waves around the music industry, and the streaming app has already added more than 1 million users in the country. It's a remarkable number, but there's no denying that the service already has stiff competition from the existing streaming platforms, especially Apple Music. As an Apple Music user myself, I was really excited about Spotify's India launch and I instantly pulled the trigger on Spotify. Having used Spotify as my primary music streaming app this past week, I have a few observations. So, just how good is Spotify when compared with Apple Music, one of its biggest competitors in the country? Here's a quick look at the points that matter: Pricing Pricing is honestly one of the first and most important factors while picking any service in general. In this case, I would say Spotify has an upper hand, mainly because of the varied subscription packages. Unlike other music streaming services, Spotify gives its users an option to opt for either the daily, weekly, half-yearly or yearly packages, in addition to the monthly subscription. Essentially, you can avail all the premium Spotify subscription for as low as Rs. 13/ day to see if you like the service and all the features that it offers. Apple Music, on the other hand, offers only one option, i.e. Rs. 120/ month. You'll effectively be shelling out Rs. 360 for three months, Rs.600 for six months and so on. So, Spotify is the clear winner here. You can just sign up for a single day and check out the app and all its features which we'll be discussing below. Music Selection & Beyond As soon as you start using Spotify in India, it won't be too long until you realize that a lot of your favourite music isn't there. Yes, it's really a bummer. It's like the Netflix debacle all over again, when a lot of binge-worthy shows like 'House of Cards' wasn't available at launch in India. Of course, things will get better over time (hopefully), but if you love your Iron Maiden or Led Zeppelin playlist, then Apple Music is a no brainer. © Spotify The native-language song selection, on the other hand, isn't bad on either service. Both Apple Music and Spotify will ask you for your preference in music to suggest similar kinds of tracks, artists, and more. If you are into local Indian music, however, I think you'd be better off using services like Gaana.com and JioSaavn. They have partnerships with better record companies under their belt and therefore you'll get to enjoy more comprehensive libraries. Again, Spotify may end up signing better labels, but for now, it is safe to say that they're barely scratching the surface with T-series. Both platforms also suggest curated playlist, but I found myself spending more time on Spotify's curated playlist than Apple Music. Apple has its own way of doing things, and the curated lists are based on the genres you select, as opposed to the songs you listen the most as Spotify does. It comes down to personal preference, but I found Spotify's 'Your Daily Mix 1' or 'Your Daily Mix 2' etc. to be more appealing than Apple Music's 'Friends Mix', and 'Chill Mix' playlists. Lastly, it is worth pointing out that Apple Music gives you a lot of options like podcasts, music videos, short films, etc., whereas Spotify only gives the option of listening to podcasts apart from songs. Music Sharing & Platform support Both platforms let you follow your friends and family members using the service. You can share, say, a playlist or keep a track of what others are listening to. The sharing features, however, are much better on Spotify. Besides connecting to your friends, you can also share your tracks via mediums like Instagram Stories, which is where most people are spending their time these days anyway. © Spotify Coming to platforms, both Spotify and Apple Music are available on Android, iOS, Windows and macOS. But if I was to switch back to Apple Music again, I'll definitely be missing the web player. It's effortless to pull up a web browser and switch over seamlessly from your phone, tablet, etc. Just a convenience that I am not ready to give up anytime soon. Final Thoughts Both streaming services in their current state have caveats of their own. While Spotify has better algorithms in place giving it an upper hand on the music discovery over the others, Apple Music has a strong music selection and has its own ecosystem with deep Siri integration. I personally won't be switching to Apple Music again, because I am not particularly bothered by lack of artists. I am also quite optimistic about Spotify's growth in India. If it's not a major a concern for you too, then I highly recommend checking out Spotify's premium subscribing at least for a day.
  18. Women's Day is just round the corner, and I'm sure all you men out there are set to woo your lady love with extravagant candlelight dinners and expensive wines and larger-than-life bouquet of flowers, just to show your affection for her. But wake up, that's not what she wants. You don't need to celebrate a grandiose Women's Day date to express your love, however, you don't need to be a scrooge either. Why not look for simple and affordable ways to show your appreciation for her and celebrate in a way that doesn't break the bank? Here are some romantic ideas you can do on Women's Day, but on a budget: 1. Begin Her Day With Gifts Unsplash Starting the day itself with exchanging gifts is the best way to go. If your budget isn't too high, DIY the f*** out of it. Unlike popular opinion, your partner will certainly observe the amount of effort you've put in the gift rather than the amount of money you have spent. Think handmade jewellery. You can customize a piece to your partner's tastes by making it yourself. Craft stores carry beads in every shape, colour and style, along with the supplies to fashion them into necklaces, earrings, and brooches, and the Internet is flooded with videos and articles on DIY-jewellery. 2. Set Up A Picnic In Your Living Room Unsplash We are using the word 'picnic' here quite loosely. Do the regular picnic setting – lay down a blanket on your living room rug and you chitchat with your bae about nothing in particular. Turn off the lights and fire up some scented candles. Regular candles will also do. Some light music in the background will be perfection given the little cosy nest you've created in your living room. 3. Ditch The Fancy Restaurant Taco Bell Don't bother with fancy three-course meals and expensive wines to express your love. This Women's Day, there is a sweet surprise for women awaiting in all Taco Bell stores. Show her what a star she is to you, without burning a big hole in your pocket with Taco Bell's new Chickstar wrap. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd know about this already. But in case you don't, fret not! It is basically a star-shaped wrap tossed with crispy chicken nachos, veggies and signature sauces of Taco Bell- Creamy Habanero and Nacho Cheese Sauce. "Yum in your tum?" Actually, we will leave the being cheesy with your girlfriend part to you. And oh, in case, either of you is vegetarian, there's a paneer version available as well. And if you're wondering how expensive this one-of-a-kind treat is, it is NOT. It will cost you ONLY Rs. 149 for the non-vegetarian wrap and Rs. 129 for the vegetarian wrap! So, rush over to your nearest stores today! 4. Plan A Scavenger Hunt And Go Down Memory Lane Unsplash Plan a scavenger hunt for her with a selection of love notes and sneak them around the house and elsewhere- her coat pockets, lunch box, her purse, etc. so she will find them during the course of the day. At the end of the hunt, you get to find old photographs and videos and watch them together and cuddle. You get the drift, don't you? 5. Gift Her A Pet! Unsplash If your loved one nurtures a soft spot for animals, why not give her a pet to remind her of you, even when you're out of town? And now if you're thinking how can this option be cheap... well, ADOPT! You get to kill two birds with one stone on Women's Day this way. Not only will your girlfriend be absolutely happy to have it, but you'll also give a home to a lovely dog, cat, hell, maybe even a lizard! The choice is yours!

  22. New in the dating game? Still testing out the warm waters? That's alright, it does take courage and a lot of patience to play the game right and once you get the hang of it, you're pretty sorted. Making the first move on a girl is quite tactical and takes a lot more than confidence but the trick is to get it right the first time so you don't mess up the next time! Not like you can't mess up. Of course, you can, and by mess up, I mean you can try your best and even then she may not be impressed. But the fact of the matter is you did try your best. © UTV Motion Pictures Sometimes, making a move on someone can apply initiating a kiss or a make-out session but here, we're just going to talk about how to address your interest in a girl if you like her, have seen her and want to know her better or have known her a while and are a little clueless about how to approach her. Here are 5 sure-shot ways that can help you in making your first move: (1) Signs Are Important Signs are like an indication of whether or not you should make your move, so they are important. Signs can come through body language, the way she interacts, eye contact and other gestures. For example, if you like someone at a bar, you will know if she's interested in you if she makes eye contact with you, which reeks of interest. That's your cue to go up to her and start talking to her. Similarly while in a conversation if she strokes your arm, laughs at your jokes, then you know you can make a move further because that's a sure-shot indication of the fact that she's interested in you. © AA Films (2) Go With The Flow By that I mean stop over-thinking about the how's and what if's and just go with the first thought in your head. If the first thought is just going to the girl you like and telling her about how you feel, then go for it. Wing it as best as you can, it works most times because it reflects the confidence you exude! © Eros International (3) Try Humour You can approach a girl and crack a funny one to get her attention since girls love men who're humorous. In fact, that's one of the best ways to make a move. If you floor her with humour she would automatically want to spend time with you because you make her laugh. It's as simple as that. © Zee Tv (4) Approach Her Friends If you know her friend(s) then maybe you can try and approach them first and strike up a conversation with them and gain some perspective about the girl you like, if they're willing to help. This helps you kill the awkwardness you may develop while talking to her and boost some much-needed confidence too! © Eros International (5) Compliment Her Mind Yes, she loves hearing she's beautiful, she'd appreciate you getting her a drink but what most men don't do is compliment her mind. Strike up a rather interesting conversation with her. It could be about life, likes and the universe but pick up anything and hear her perspective on it. If it makes sense to you, definitely pay her a compliment because she deserves it. © Fox Star Studios Making the first move isn't hard if you follow through with these points. Just keep in mind to know that it's okay if she says 'no'. Rejection is part and parcel of the process, so it should be taken with positivity. After all, it all boils down to consent and how respectful you are in general towards women. Other than that, keep trying till you ace your moves!
  23. Remember the epic promo that introduced Australia's tour of India for the Twenty20 and ODI series, the one in which former Indian opener Virender Sehwag acts as a babysitter managing infants dressed in Australian jerseys roaming around the dressing room cluelessly, crying? Yeah, that promo just backfired. Australia's T20I series against the Men in Blue is a testament to the fact that they are not only an assembly of mature, elite class cricketers but also one of the dominating teams in the world. Handing Team India their first series defeat on Indian soil in 40 months, Aaron Finch and Co. swept the series clean. The first match showed the immense potential the extremely talented bowlers of the Australian cricket team consist of. Following the leadership of pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile (Man of the Match), the bowlers blew away every batsman that pose a threat. Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik were some of the witnesses of the storm that the Australian bowling was. Limiting Virat Kohli's side to a mere total of 126, they won the game with three wickets to spare. The second match, on the other hand, showed the team's batting prowess. All-rounder Glenn Maxwell took over the game with his thunderous innings in which he scored 119 runs in just 55 deliveries to bring home the game and the series in a jiffy. When the India-Australia promo came out, a lot of people were unhappy with the “cockiness” the Indian side displayed in the name of casual sledging and friendly banter. The fact that India won their ODI and Test series during their time Down Under against a depleted Australian side was hugely missed out on. Back in the day, Australian cricket legend Matthew Hayden sent out a tweet as well, warning Indians against underestimating the team and boy, was he correct in doing so. #BeWarned Never take Aussie's for a joke Viru Boy @virendersehwag @StarSportsIndia Just remember who's baby sitting the #WorldCup trophy https://t.co/yRUtJVu3XJ — Matthew Hayden AM (@HaydosTweets) February 11, 2019 Just as the promo ended with Sehwag expressing his concerns about the chances of Australia defeating our boys, reality has struck Indian cricket fans like lightning and might as well be a reminder of exactly how strong their side can be, especially with the 2019 World Cup coming up.
  24. The Motorola RAZR has been that one nostalgic smartphone we all want to see make a return but with updated features. According to a new report by The Wall Street Journal, the foldable display version of the Motorola RAZR will make a comeback, but will cost $1500. The original RAZR was one of the most popular and iconic phones before the iPhone was unveiled and it looks like Motorola wants to cash-in on the nostalgia. The new RAZR smartphone is expected to be launched in the US as an exclusive device with network carrier Verizon. The report suggests that the device is still in testing and further details are yet to be confirmed. © Concept Design This is not the first time Motorola has launched a smartphone with the RAZR branding, as we saw two smartphones in 2011 and 2012 respectively with the same branding. Having said that, the two smartphones did not have the flip device which was one of the reasons why it was not well received back in the day. As of now, there is no word on its specifications such as the screen size, its functionality or what is powering the smartphone under the hood. It is expected that Lenovo (the company that owns Motorola) will follow the original design of the RAZR and have a tall folding device. This design choice will be different from what we have already seen from Samsung and Huawei in the past week. © YouTube The WSJ reports go on to detail that Lenovo will manufacture over 2 Lakh RAZR devices and will be sold as more of a luxury product. The hefty price tag of $1,500 (Roughly Rs 1,06,700) definitely defines it as a luxury product, considering foldable smartphones are expensive to manufacture right now. The original RAZR V3 managed to sell over 130 million units back in the day and if Lenovo implements the folding display technology correctly, the company can achieve this goal in the near future.

  25. Amidst national tensions, the National War Memorial made its presence felt when it was inaugurated on Monday, 25th of February, 2019 by PM Narendra Modi. The memorial honours all the soldiers who laid down their lives for the country, since India proclaimed Independence in 1947. The memorial is sprawled over 40 acres, at the India Gate complex, right at the heart of the capital and it was first proposed nearly 6 decades ago. The wait is finally over and we can salute our memorable war heroes, in a way they truly deserve to be remembered! The memorial, built at the cost of Rs 176 crore, has 5 concentric circles, a central stone obelisk and an eternal flame. Here are 12 pictures of the greatest symbol of honour and valour, we have in India today. © Reuters © Reuters © BCCL © Reuters © Reuters © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © Reuters The memorial has names of 25, 942 fallen heroes etched on stones there and it will soon create interactive panels for general public who want to pay homage to the war heroes. The memorial will also be a place for the armed forces to conduct future ceremonies there. Along with the wall memoir, the memorial also has four Chakras (circles) that signify the value of the armed forces. The Amar Chakra is the circle of immortality, the Veerta Chakra is the circle of bravery, the Tyag Chakra is the circle of sacrifice and the Rakshak Chakra is the circle of protection. More than any other heritage site you may want to visit in the capital, the National War Memorial should be the first on your list, as it's a symbol of true honour and pride for India.
