  1. Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly one of the greatest men to have ever kicked a football. With 5 Champions League trophies and 5 Ballon D'Or wins, he has established himself as one of the most decorated and successful players of his generation. However, an aspect of his journey that people tend to take for granted, is the incredible amount of work he puts in to keep himself fit and at the top of his game. This was highlighted particularly when Ronaldo, who has time-off in between his triumph with Portugal in the UEFA Nations League 2019 and the 2019-20 campaign with Juventus where they seek to win their 9th league title in a row, shared images of himself sweating it out in the gym. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano) on Jun 16, 2019 at 1:58am PDT While other players are photographed on holiday and taking genuine time off from the game, Ronaldo continues his quest for greatness and puts the work in to constantly improve himself. Even at 34 years of age, Ronaldo's work ethic continues to be inspirational for young footballers all over the world as he is essaying the drive and hunger that is required from a champion athlete, to achieve even half of what he has achieved in the game. After Euro 2016 triumph and the recent Nations League win with Portugal, three back-to-back champions league titles with Real Madrid and a league title with Juventus in his first season, Ronaldo continues to maintain an elite level and continues to be one of the best (if not the best) players in the world. After all that he has achieved in the game, to continue to have the hunger to achieve more, win more and improve as a footballer shows the winning mentality of Ronaldo that is often on display even on the biggest stage. He will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest footballers of all time and he continues to show why.
  2. Sanjay Gupta is all set to return to what he loves doing the most, making gangster dramas. The popular director, who is completing his 25 years in the industry, announced his upcoming movie, 'Mumbai Saga'. Sanjay has a knack of getting a stellar cast on board for his projects, and his next is no different. For those uninitiated, 'Shootout At Wadala' was the last gangster drama he directed and now, he has donned the director's hat yet again for his upcoming movie. Gupta's 'Mumbai Saga' traces the evolution of Mumbai from Bombay. It will cover the events that led between the 80s and the 90s, as the city underwent a major transformation. 'Mumbai Saga' will feature John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Rohit Roy, and Amole Gupte among others in significant roles. MensXP got in touch with director Sanjay Gupta and we asked him how did he manage to pull off such a casting coup. On this, he told us, “To be very honest, it was very easy to get all of them on board. See, this is one of the advantages when you're a part of the industry for long 25 years as you can get your work done on phone. I just spoke with them over a call and everything just happened smoothly. We were not planning to announce it now but then the marketing team decided that it's the best time because I will be completing 25 years in the industry. It was pretty simple and I am very much grateful to all my actor who had the faith in me.” Our first cinematic take on gangster drama #MumbaiSaga is set in 80's & 90's notorious era. Happy to collaborate with @_SanjayGupta backed by power cast @TheJohnAbraham @emraanhashmi @bindasbhidu @SunielVShetty @rohitroy500 @GulshanGroverGG @prateikbabbar #AmolGupte@TSeries pic.twitter.com/KoEus0Q0E8 — Bhushan Kumar (@itsBhushanKumar) June 14, 2019 So, there's this preconceived notion that getting a number of male actors on board for a movie is easier than getting female actors tagging along for a project. We asked him if he believes in this idea. “I don't really think there will be any issues. Fortunately or unfortunately, I never had the challenge to do so. I would be in a better space to speak about it when I will be making a remake of 'Charlie's Angels' (laughs),” said Gupta. Sanjay asserted that 'Mumbai Saga' is one of his most ambitious projects till now. Well, the idea behind the movie is to show how things panned out for the city when the mills were eradicated from the landscape. We asked him how did he zero down to this idea for the movie. Elaborating on this, Sanjay said, “I was working on 'Shootout At Wadala' and I got in touch with Hussain Zaidi to come on board with me as a writer on this project to do some research. He had mentioned about some characters and that intrigued me. When I went deeper into researching about them, I realized that there's this explosive story which hasn't been told, which is how the landscape of the city changed from Bombay to Mumbai over the years and that only happened when the mills were shut down giving space to the malls and high rises. It all happened because of the nexus between mill owners, the underworld, politicians, and the cops and that's why I needed an ensemble of actors in my movie.” Considering the 80s being the backdrop, we somehow thought if Dawood's narrative would be a part of the movie. But, Sanjay clarified that the movie primarily focuses on Hindu gangsters. “The story starts after Dawood left Mumbai in 1984. The movie will focus on the events between the mid-80s to the mid-90s. It's more about the resurgence of the Hindu gangsters, mainly Maharashtrians.” They rose from the streets of Bombay to rule Mumbai. Presenting #MumbaiSaga 1st Look@TheJohnAbraham @emraanhashmi @_SanjayGupta @itsBhushanKumar @SunielVShetty @bindasbhidu @prateikbabbar @rohitroy500 @GulshanGroverGG #AmoleGupte @tseries @Whitefeatherfilms pic.twitter.com/c93bhAYa7v — Suniel Shetty (@SunielVShetty) June 14, 2019 Further, into the conversation, we took Sanjay a little back to the time of 'Jazbaa'. Despite having Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Irrfan on board, the movie fell flat at the box office. We asked if the failure of 'Jazbaa' affected the director. “It did really upset me and when I look back, I know what went wrong. When the trailer of 'Jazbaa' released, it did find the connect but after that, it all went downhill because of the way the marketing team promoted it as they had no clue. It's not a coincidence that all the marketing team professionals who were working on 'Jazbaa' have been fired today. Aishwarya was playing a mother and before the movie was about to release, they wanted to show her as someone who has just come from the 'Dhoom' sets which sent a wrong message to the people. It was a marketing fiasco but again, I am not saying it was a great movie and I am taking the blame. But, then there are some bad movies with great marketing that work wonders but then you have some movies that fall flat because of the marketing and 'Jazbaa' is a prime example of that,” said Gupta. From his debut as a director with the 1994 film 'Aatish' to his projects in 2019, the industry has been completely revamped and things have changed drastically. We asked him about the changes that the industry should still imbibe. On this, he told us, “I don't know what changes the industry should imbibe, but the biggest change that has come is in these two words, 'likes' and 'dislikes'. Suddenly, the whole industry is perception-driven and everything is about what's the perception of people about you, or how popular you are and what's your brand value. It has taken away the basic tenet of entertaining. There has been a resurgence of UP cinema as I say but those are the stories from the heartland and should be shown. But, having said that, why are we shying from big-budgeted actioner and movies? Even if I make a masterpiece, there will be a few critics or reviewers who wouldn't like it and I have learnt to live with it, but this will not deter me from making the movie I want to.” Now that he is completing 25 years, he summed up his journey for us. “My journey has just started and I have done things in the past that I feel I could have done in a better way but I have no regrets. It has been a wonderful journey and it has made me a better provider to my family,” he said and signed off.
  3. Actors are heroes and idols for their fans who blindly follows their fashion antics, try to impersonate their personality traits and often times even try to follow their principles in real life. Big B aka Amitabh Bachchan is a mega star in his own way, and for decades, he's ruled everyone's hearts as well as the screens. Recently, when he shared a piece of information regarding a promise he kept, social media went abuzz with praises for him. Big B paid off loans for 2100 farmers from Bihar. "A promise made done... the farmers from Bihar that had outstanding loans, picked 2,100 of them and paid off their amount with a OTS (One Time Settlement) with the bank...called some of them over to Janak and personally gave it to them at the hands of Shweta and Abhishek," he mentioned on his blog. © Twitter © Twitter Last year, he helped over a thousand farmers in UP and cleared off their loans. He also mentioned what his other promise is. “To the family and wives of the brave hearts that sacrificed their lives for the country, at Pulwama, a small gesture of financial aid ... true 'shaheeds'.” It is wonderful when celebrities you admire set a great example by extending help in any way. He's truly the 'shehenshah' of Bollywood and of our hearts.
  4. Pulling off the colour, white may seem a little tricky. However, if you really want to position yourself as a true fashion icon, it is also a colour that you must have in your closet. If you think you have been wearing white the right way, think again. Here are a few tips you should keep when you go shopping: 1. The Classic © Getty Images Nothing works as great as the classic, white shirt with blue jeans. No, seriously, you CANNOT go wrong with this. It does not matter what your body type is, or what the occasion, this combo is simple, sweet and epic. Also, not to mention, really easy to assemble. Just take care of your footwear and check if it compliments your belt, and you are good to go. 2. Plain And Simple © Instagram A plain white tee is something that every guy has to have in his closet. Extremely versatile, and really easy to carry, just ensuring that you have the right size is more than enough. Pair it with a pair of jeans, or a slim fitting pair of chinos and voila! You are good to go. Alternatively, shirts with minimal printed designs work well too. 3. Playing With Forms and Styles © Instagram The thing with white is that you can actually play around with materials, cuts, designs and whatnot, without going horribly wrong. Sure, there may be moments when your choices may seem a little out of place, but as long as you are not wearing white on white without the physique to pull it off, you will be just fine. 4. White Denims © Getty Images Although this may seem a little weird for some guys, going for a white pair of denims, or a white denim jacket can work wonders for your closet and personal style statement. You can pair light coloured shirts such as cream or off white, with a pair of jeans. If you have a white denim jacket, try pairing it with a darker shade, as that is a better look. Again, no matter what, do not go for a complete, white-on-white outfit. 5. Contrast © Instagram In case you have not been able to spot a trend here, contrasting your outfit is always a good idea. Actually, that is a rule of thumb for any situation when you are confused as to what should you wear. Plus, it also allows for your individual pieces to stand out, no matter how simple and plain they may seem.
  5. Arguably one of the greatest English footballers of all time, Frank Lampard enthralled fans with his long-range screamers on the field and, a calm and composed demeanour off it. With 29 goals for England and a record 211 goals for Chelsea (in all competitions), Lampard was undoubtedly the best midfielder of his generation. Cherished by fans and respected by opponents, Lampard bid a teary adieu to his professional footballing career in 2017. But, the Chelsea legend couldn't stay away from the sport as he returned to football, this time in the managerial role, when he joined Championship club Derby County as their manager in 2018. And, for a man who thrived in the role of a midfielder, Lampard seems to be carving his own niche in the managerial role with the same vigour that once saw him capture the imagination of fans as a footballer. The 40-year-old has been having the time of his life with Derby County. And, more recently, he enjoyed his best night as a football manager on 16th May. © Reuters Building on, what is turning out to be a terrific season for them, Lampard guided Derby County to the Championship playoff semifinals after finishing sixth in the league. After losing the first leg 1-0 at Pride Park, Lampard helped Derby in staging a spectacular comeback in the second leg as they hammered Leeds United 4-2 to ensure they are now just a win away from joining the big boys in the coveted Premier League next season. ð¤©#FridayFeeling pic.twitter.com/n74XgRafGa — Derby County (@dcfcofficial) May 17, 2019 Incredible scenes as the Derby players sing “Stop Crying Frank Lampard” in the changing room ð ð¥ @dcfcofficial pic.twitter.com/0kmOIuULh9 — ODDSbible (@ODDSbible) May 15, 2019 The thrilling comeback win understandably called for celebrations which, as expected, went long into the night. Derby County players and staff celebrated their triumph at the King's Head in Duffield. The pub also shared a video of them celebrating their playoff victory. And, if that wasn't enough, the fact that Lampard and his boys wracked up a 2,800-pound (over Rs 2.50 lakh) bill in their post-match celebrations, shows what victory really meant to this bunch. ð» - 209 beers ð¥ - 75 Jaegermeisters ð¸ - 64 shots of Vodka ....and 1 diet coke! 𥤠@dcfcofficials's Frank Lampard took his players out after their play-off semi-final win over @LUFC and it looks like they certainly enjoyed themselves...ð pic.twitter.com/aujxl99JUn — Sky Sports Football (@SkyFootball) May 17, 2019 But, it was Lampard, once again, who ran away with all the praise - this time for being the responsible manager. It has been learned that Lampard took care of the hefty bill that was accumulated through 209 beers, 75 jagers, 54 sambuca shots and 38 tequila shots. Well, if that's how the Derby is going to celebrate in the Championship, we can't help but wonder what this lot will do once they come to play in the Premier League.
  6. Superhero movies can be inspiring. Characters like Captain America and Iron Man can motivate people to never give up, stay focused on their goals, try harder when things don't seem to go the way they'd imagined, and everything else in between. However, the beautiful thing about such movies is that they are open to interpretation. People are free to fall in love with whichever character they relate mostly to and aspire to become like them. Sometimes a little too much, but that's okay. Take this man, Henry Damon, for example. Currently 41-years-old, the Venezuelan comic book fan got up one morning and decided that he wanted to look like Red Skull from Marvel's 'Captain America: The First Avenger', a fictional (keyword) character played by the ever so talented Hugo Weaving. © Instagram/Henry Damon While the movie was released in 2011, Damon's resolution to look like the Hydra villain came around somewhere in 2012 when he tattooed his eyes black and realised for the first time that he was going to go the distance and modify his face completely to look like Red Skull. “He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it,” friend Pablo Hernandez said. © Instagram/Henry Damon After going through a series of operations to get subdermal implants to his forehead, Damon underwent surgery to chop off half of his nose to get the iconic nasal appearance the Nazi villain boasted so much in both the comics and the movie. © Instagram/Henry Damon “Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person,” said Emilio Gonzalez, a med-school drop-out with expertise in tattoo-making and extreme body surgeries. “He's an excellent son, husband and father, who has an extreme taste for body modification. Most of my customers know that body modification is the last step of body art, everyone knows very well what they want and as well as Henry, many of them are waiting for me for many years to make their dreams a reality.” After the nose surgery, Damon went on to put silicone implants on his cheekbones and covered his face with red and black tattoos to complete the look. Final result? View this post on Instagram Henry Damon's new look, achieved through heavy tattooing and various modification surgeries. #demon #henrydamon #tattoo #extreme #real #fun #virat #msdhoni #messi #ronaldinho A post shared by DREAMGURU11 (@11dreamguru) on Dec 31, 2018 at 8:21am PST

  8. Jason Momoa and his beard almost share a relationship like The Rock and his muscles - you just can't imagine him without it. Be it Khal Drogo or Aquaman, that macho beard gave every character he played an inimitable edge, something fans used to obsess over, rightfully so.

  9. There is still some amount of compassion and empathy left in this world, where war and hate co-exist. People recognise the dire need for compassion that can change the basic ethos of the current negative situation everywhere and bring about balance in a much needed way. Just recently we saw a prime example of the kind of empathy we're talking about when oil-rig workers rescued an exhausted dog off the coast of Thailand, giving him an absolutely new life. The tan-coloured dog who was later named Boonrod by his rescuers, which means 'survivor from karma' in Thai, was saved amidst heavy waves, in the middle of the sea in the Gulf of Thailand. The oil-rig workers saw the dogs head bobbing up and down, while they were busy at work and they brought him up on the platform. © CNN Boonrod was about 220KMS away from the shore when he was spotted by Vitisak Payalaw, who went on Facebook to talk about the rescue. Vitisak works with Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production and he said if there were high waves while the dog was in water, they probably wouldn't even have seen him. He put up a video of the dog when he was found, on Facebook. © CNN According to Vitisak, the dog made it to the platform, clinging on to the support structure, without barking, whimpering or showing any resistance to water. The crew then lowered a rope and tied it to his neck to haul him up. The oil-rig workers suspect the dog may have fallen off a fishing trawler and couldn't find his way back to the shore hence. Boonrod has luckily found a home as well and guess where it's going to be? Vitisak has decided to adopt the dog and take him to his home in Northeast Thailand.
  10. Christopher Henry Gayle, this man has grown to become the bane of a lot of bowlers' existence through his 20 years of batting for the Windies team and the thought of bowling six deliveries to this batting legend seems to be a harrowing one. But, as a member of a cricket team, you have got to do what your captain says. Thus, came in the 25-year-old Mohammed Siraj to bowl his first over of the game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) with the 'Universe Boss', himself on strike. To add to Siraj's misery, his first over also happened to be the final one of the batting Power Play for the Kings XI so Gayle had a little extra motivation to lookout for bigger shots during these six deliveries. Opening the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowler's over with a four on the first ball, Gayle smoked Siraj for a six and another four on the second and third deliveries, respectively. Letting the gasping pacer breathe for a dot ball, Gayle continued the onslaught hitting another six and a four on the last two deliveries of the spell, bagging a total of 24 runs in the sixth over, all for himself. SIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRAAAA-J WELCOME! ð 4,6,4, Gayle has decided to unleash and he's taking on Siraj here. ð#SaddaPunjab #KXIPvRCB #KXIP #VIVOIPL — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 13, 2019 Siraj went on to bowl three more overs of his quota but resulted in becoming the most expensive bowler for the Virat Kohli side giving away 54 runs in 24 legal deliveries. Throughout the 2019 season of the IPL, Siraj has been one of the costliest bowlers not only for Bangalore but the entire league. Having bowled 22.1 overs this season, Siraj has let off 210 runs while bagging just six scalps with an economy rate of 9.47. After his first showing of the match, RCB fans took to Twitter to speculate as to what keeps the team managers of the squad from dropping him: Mohammed Siraj has @imVkohli 's nudes. Why else would he be selected? #KXIPvRCB — Harshith (@CS_Harshith) April 13, 2019 It's hard to understand why @imVkohli is still having Mohammed Siraj in the @RCBTweets team after so many disappointing performances by him. #IPL2019 #KXIPvsRCB — Vaibhav K (@VaibhavKajarek2) April 13, 2019 Still a better bowler than Mohammed Siraj ð𤣠#VIVOIPL #PerfectFan #HYDERABAD #KXIPvRCB #PLAYBOLD pic.twitter.com/C2hKZg4eNj — Prithvi Cena (@prithvicena21) April 13, 2019 Hey @RCBTweets why is #MohammedSiraj is in playing X1 such a useless player — Sushith (@Sushithsuvarna) April 13, 2019 Mohammed siraj = lol — Prashanth Karanth (@Prashanth511) April 13, 2019
  11. Summer months are cruel for everyone. Besides the heat and the sweat that comes along, you also have to deal with body hair. The crop gets annoying in the Summer. While the decision of getting rid of it is completely yours, you should know that you have options to get a hot bod this Summer that would attract a lot of lingering eyes and in a good way! We talked to women to find out how they prefer body hair on men. Before we begin, you should know that chest hair is, in fact, attractive, (obviously not in the excess bushy way that Anil Kapoor and Akshay Kumar advertised it as) but in a mild sheath sort of way and that can only be maintained if you groom it well. And we're not just talking about chest hair here, but also shoulder hair, back hair, upper back hair, hair on the stomach. So here's what women think: 1. Shoulder Crop © Getty Images "Winter might leave a layer of fur across your shoulders. But if you're planning to hit the beach or a water park, it's better to get rid of it," says Apoorva Sharma, 27. So, here are your options: you could shave these with the help of a professional or get them waxed if you have good pain tolerance. However, if you shave, the hair might pop back up even thicker. So you could also consider getting them trimmed too which is faster and hassle free but you'll need assistance. 2. Chest Hair © Getty Images "I don't mind chest hair at all, as long is it's not in volumes that make it hard to see the chest underneath. Grooming chest hair is always appreciated," says Divya Arora, 22. The 'très bon' technique to groom the chest hair has been hotly debated for years. There's no one way to groom your chest hair. From a smooth care chest, to the bush and the light crop in the middle, there are different ways in which you could groom your chest hair. So really, it's entirely up to you. Waxing works great if you want to go bare-chested for a longer duration but if you can't handle the pain, you could consider more permanent options like laser. An electric trimmer could also work if you don't mind cropped strays. In fact, these cropped strays add a touch of authenticity and work best for emergencies(like an unplanned hook-up night). 3.The Nape Strays © Getty Images "I don't mind body hair at all except the hair that pops out of the back of the shirt, that is a turn-off," says Ruhi Sarkar, 25. In contrast to your chest, there's no question at all as to what to do with unwanted outcroppings of the nape: get rid of them. These pop out of basically everything that doesn't have a collar attached to it and not in a good way. Shaving's not going to do the trick here, at least not without complications. This time, though, your best course of action is to book an appointment with a professional, as ripping the hair out from the root will help to keep them at bay for longer otherwise get the same professional to trim them because there's no way you can reach all of them. 4. The Stomach Fur © Getty Images "It's a little odd to see the if the chest hair is groomed but the stomach hair is left out, I personally think all body hair should be groomed uniformly," says Vani Kapoor, 28. Follow the principle of uniformity. Assuming that you're grooming your pubic hair, in the very session make sure to groom hair on the stomach as well. Uneven growth looks odd visually. The easiest way out is trimming them out. 5. Butt Hair © Getty Images "I love beach bums. They're even more attractive if men groom before wearing swimsuits," says Radhika Bedi, 25. The stubble on your butt cheek and butt crack could look better in a swimsuit if you groom it. You could get rid of it with a trimmer or going to the salon and getting professional help which always eases the job.
  12. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is credited for many things in cricket. His leadership skills allowed India to scale new heights in international cricket. Dhoni's unorthodox glovework has become a case study for budding wicket-keepers. And, needless to mention, his famous 'helicopter shot' has now become a trademark amongst batsmen. We've seen a few batsmen in the past repeating Dhoni's trademark shot. Whether it was Rashid Khan, Prithvi Shaw or Rishabh Pant, everyone appears to be busy emulating Dhoni on the field. And, Hardik Pandya isn't far behind. This is how Hardik Pandya got the helicopter to land in Wankhede against CSK #IPL2019 #IPLT20 #IPL12 #MI #HardikPandya #CSK #OneFamily (Video Courtesy: Hardik Pandya Instagram Page) pic.twitter.com/ofIfv6qmXk — CricFit (@CricFit) April 3, 2019 The 25-year-old, who had earlier shared a video of himself practicing the iconic stroke, officially joined the bandwagon after successfully pulling off the 'helicopter shot' against a team led by none other Dhoni himself during the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) on 3rd April. Twitter/@IPL Coming in to bat in the 17th over, Pandya showed signs of aggression on the first delivery of the penultimate over after he smashed Shardul Thakur for a six over square leg. Then, after Kieron Pollard hammered Bravo for a six on the third delivery, Pandya gave Mumbai a final flourish by scoring 16 runs (6,4 and 6) off the final three balls. M15: MI vs CSK – Hardik Pandya Six https://t.co/GjfmMNB7va via @ipl — Dixit Bhargav (@dixitbhargav09) April 3, 2019 He helicoptered Bravo's yorker into the top tier - something Dhoni would have also enjoyed from behind the stumps - on the fourth delivery. Then, he punched a drive through extra cover for a boundary. And, finally, slashing a fuller delivery over third man to finish with a six. A staggering 29 runs came off Bravo's final over with Pandya finishing at an 8-ball 25 alongside Pollard's 7-ball 17. While Pandya played some brilliant strokes, his version of Dhoni's 'helicopter shot' undoubtedly captured the imagination of cricket fans on the social media.

  13. For a team that has often been labelled as the underachievers of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi Capitals (DC) made a roaring start to shrug off past disappointments in the 2019 edition. The Shreyas Iyer-led side stunned three-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in their opening match before a narrow loss against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). But, a spirited show against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) that saw them record their second win of the season after surviving a nerve-wreaking one-over eliminator, highlighted Delhi's improved character this season. Having secured two wins out of three games, Capitals were on their way to record their third triumph before Sam Curran's sensational hat-trick turned the game in Kings XI Punjab's favour. Sam Curran, you beauty ð¥ð¥#VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/3ls47GBt0t — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 1, 2019 Chasing a total of 166 runs, Delhi were cruising at 144/3 in 16.3 overs before suffering a massive batting collapse. The visitors lost seven wickets in a mere 17 deliveries as Punjab pulled off a 14-run win out of the jaws of what initially seemed like a certain defeat. Mohammed Shami and Sam Curran were the heroes for Punjab, but it was arguably the young Englishman whose figures of 4-11 (including a sensational hat-trick) made the difference. For someone who had earlier slammed a 10-ball 20 before rattling Delhi's line-up with the ball, Curran was rightly adjudged the 'Man of the Match'. But, after impressing everyone with his batting and bowling, the 20-year-old saved the best for the last as he was seen flaunting his 'Bhangra moves' with KXIP owner Preity Zinta after their cracking win. ðºðºðº Some bhangra moves there, courtesy @realpreityzinta & @CurranSM ðð pic.twitter.com/VAeXq3I07o — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 1, 2019 A brief video of the Curran's dance with Zinta was, later, shared on the official handle of the IPL.

  14. Holi parties are great, but post-Holi skincare can be traumatizing for you considering it's very tough to get rid off these colours off your face. But here's a guide for you filled with tried and tested, super-effective products that make it easy to get rid off those clingy colours. Now, in good faith, we obviously hope that the first thing you'll do after coming back is going to the shower and wash your face. Aside from the basic products, you should also use: 1. A Glycerin Cleansing Agent Glycerine is one of the most effective ingredients when it comes to skincare. Using this glycerine cleansing agent will ensure effective cleansing while maintaining the pH balance. © nykaa 2. A Heavy Duty Scrub A scrub is more aggressive than a face wash in weeding out seeded dirt( in this case colour) from your skin. A scrub with tiny granules rubs against your pores gently and makes sure all the dirt is removed. © nykaa 3. A Deep Cleansing Shampoo For your brittle hair from all the colour that you've been exposed to, you need a deep cleansing shampoo to get rid of all that extra dirt. © nykaa 4. An Oil To Gently Rub Off The Excessive Dirt Massage your skin and scalp with this sweet almond oil before the second run of cleansing, in case there are still colour stains left. Oil also helps in cleansing your skin and moisturizes it at the same time. You could choose from almond, coconut or sesame, whichever you're most comfortable with. © nykaa 5. A Good Moisturizer After aggressive cleansing sessions, your skin needs some pampering. Use a good moisturizer so that all the lost hydration returns and your skin is left glowing once again. © nykaa
  15. Accused of corruption and spot-fixing in an internal inquiry held by BCCI's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit led by Ravi Sawani, during the sixth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2013, S Sreesanth gets partial relief from the Supreme Court, that slashed the life ban imposed on the Kerala-born cricketer while urging the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) to revisit the punishment for his alleged crimes. A similar verdict was made public back in 2017 when a single-benched Kerala High Court which was spearheaded by Justice A Muhamed Mustaque, removed the BCCI-led lifetime ban on the pacer's cricketing career. However, the decision was reversed within two months as a division bench of the high court restored the life sentence following the Indian cricket board's appeal against Justice Mustaque's verdict. Now, after years of relentless appeals made by the cricketer to the Indian judicial system to override the Board's “completely unfair” punishment, the Supreme Court may have given him a second chance to make good of his career as an Indian cricketer. Having said that, the highest court of the country didn't fail to mention that they did not question the efforts put in by BCCI's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit nor did it challenge the authenticity of the findings made by the committee towards Sreesanth's guilt. "In the context of facts and manner in which these things have happened, this court should consider that it (life ban on Sreesanth by BCCI) is unfair. He has suffered for the last five-six years. People want him to play cricket. He was extremely loyal to BCCI," Sreesanth's lawyer and senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appealed to the bench. With Supreme Court providing the cricketer with a green chit to rejuvenate his cricketing career, the ball is in the BCCI's court. Having won the World Cup with the Indian cricket team in 2011, Sreesanth has often expressed his desire to officially return to the field. At 35 years of age, he even promised to give the youngsters a run for their money if the Board lifted the ban.
  16. Gone are the days when it took us more than a few seconds to put a face to the name Vicky Kaushal.

  17. The Men in Blue are currently guests in the former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's hometown of Ranchi for the crucial third of five ODIs against Team Australia, scheduled to take place on 8th March 2019. It is a well-known fact that a major reason why the Jharkhand capital is known globally is because of the inspirational ascend of the wicket-keeper batsman, who rose from the streets and went on the win big trophies for the country, in a game which is treated as a religion. Dhoni is a star, nay, a god in Ranchi. Tourists from all over the world visit the city literally to be a part of a 'Dhoni Tour'. Where he went to have tea, his locker room, his favourite place to sit back and experience Ranchi cricket in all its glory, everything has been well documented by the cricketing world. Now that the prodigal son has returned, the streets are his to rule. An automobile enthusiast, Dhoni has a massive garage of beasts like Ferrari 599 GTO and GMC Sierra 3500HD but the car that our 'Captain Cool' is particularly fond of, is his silver Hummer H2 (probably because that's the only car out of his collection that would move on Indian roads and over monstrous speed-breakers). Whenever Dhoni is in Ranchi, he loves to move around in his shiny Hummer. Remember the time Thala rode past the New Zealand squad in his supercar while Kiwi batsman Ross Taylor's jaw dropped to the floor? Remember when Dhoni drove to the ground with his Hummer and NZ players were left in awe ðð. Look at Ross's face. Mass pic.twitter.com/6JpE1AdWEY — Naveen (@ImNsamy) March 6, 2019 This time around, ahead of the third ODI against the Aussies, Dhoni decided to take the youngsters of the team, Rishabh Pant and Kedar Jadhav, for a spin in the H2. As expected, the car was surrounded by Dhoni's most ardent fans making it difficult for the cricketers to even get inside SUV. View this post on Instagram ♥ï¸♥ï¸♥ï¸ A post shared by Team Indiað®ð³ (@indiancricketteam7) on Mar 6, 2019 at 2:02am PST Pant and Jadhav, who might not have expected such a crowd around Dhoni's car, looked startled and had boyish expressions on their faces as they comfortably placed themselves of the expensive leather seats.
  18. Anil Kapoor must be doing something weird - something no one knows about, something that's keeping him young, in fact, perhaps even turning the clock in reverse for him. We are not saying it, it's just the general sentiment among people, who constantly wonder how on earth this man seems to be getting younger by the day. Now, we have made peace with just believing that he's another case like Benjamin Button, but what baffles us is that his fashion sense is also getting edgier by the day! He just clicked a picture with a bunch of youngsters (compared to him, of course) like Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kunal Khemu, and stole their collective thunder by wearing a pair of funky AF pink shoes. Take a look. © Instagram/Anillskapoor © Instagram/Anilskapoor Isn't Mr Kapoor standing apart by a mile, thanks to his footwear game? He's wearing the OFF-WHITE x Nike Zoom Fly in Tulip Pink - a pair of sneakers that are extremely conspicuous, while being comfortable at the same time. © Kicksonfore © Kicksonfore The signature Off-White typography along with the multiple shades of pink make this a pair that's a definite collectable, and every sneakerhead will agree. Right, Anand Ahuja? © Kicksonfore © Kicksonfore We're in love with the ergonomic design, as well as the signature laces. All we can say is, Mr Kapoor, take a bow because you're doing it just right.
  19. The unannounced OnePlus 7 is the next flagship smartphone to be released later this year and there has been plenty of speculation in regards to its design. Previous leaks have suggested that the OnePlus 7 will have a brave new design that may include a full-screen design. In order to implement a full-screen design, there are speculations that OnePlus may have to implement a sliding mechanism or a pop-out selfie camera similar to what we have seen on OPPO and Vivo smartphones. (c) Twitter That's the same story being told by renders that were published by Pricebaba and OnLeaks. OnLeaks generally has a good track record of leaks based on renders and it shows that the OnePlus 7 may have a design that might not excite everyone. Personally, we love the pop-out selfie camera as we finally saw the innovation being affordable thanks to the Vivo V15 Pro. It might be possible that may see this design on the OnePlus 7 as well however there are a few drawbacks with this design. (c) PriceBaba The OnePlus 7 already uses an in-display fingerprint sensor and it seems like that the OnePlus 7 will take a page from Vivo's book. It is said to have a 95% screen-to-body ratio which will be a first for any smartphone. Having said that, in order to have a design similar to the Vivo V15 Pro, it would come at the expensive of negligible water resistance and fast facial recognition. The OnePlus 6T's facial recognition capabilities were exceptionally fast however a pop-out selfie camera will naturally delay that process. (c) PriceBaba Apart from a pop-up design, the OnePlus 7 renders also show a vertical triple-camera setup at the rear. It's lined up straight at the middle without a fingerprint scanner to give it a more plush look. OnePlus already removed the headphone jack with the 6T and we can see a similar design choice on the OnePlus 7 as well. Needless to say that these renders are based on leaks and are not what the final outcome may look like. We can only be sure when OnePlus announces the OP7 later this year and see how these design choices may affect the practicality of the smartphone, if true. Source: Pricebaba
  20. MWC 2019 is in full swing and it's all about 5G and foldable phones. Even before the tradeshow started, Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold alongside the S10 and grabbed everyone's attention. This was soon followed by Huawei's Mate X, however, the two folding phones have a different approach and are the hottest products in town. Now, OPPO has also joined the bandwagon and revealed the images of their "concept" folding phones. OPPO VP Brian Shen shared a few pictures of the concept phone on Weibo and said the company isn't planning on shipping the phone unless there is sufficient demand. The most interesting part of the phone is its design though. © Weibo The pictures reveal a phone that looks eerily similar to Huawei's Mate X. A single large OLED panel wraps around both the sides when folded, instead of folding towards the inside (like the Galaxy Fold). A bar on the outside houses a dual camera setup and offers grip in holding the tablet-cum phone. Shen said, that he doesn't think a foldable phone brings significant improvement in user experience and hence OPPO is refraining from mass producing the phone right now. Basically, OPPO intends to let Samsung and Huawei launch their offerings, analyse the market response, and then decide whether the product is viable in short-term. © Weibo Xiaomi has also confirmed that it is working on a foldable phone with dual-fold technology. We've previously seen them teasing a similar prototype, and expect the brand to join the trend in the coming future. OPPO hasn't named the concept yet and even the internal specifications remain unknown. With so many companies trying to make their mark, it's ultimately going to be good for the consumer. Samsung and Huawei are charging upwards of US$ 2,000 (Rs 1,42,000) for the foldable phones right now, and with more companies joining the trend and investing in development, the costs are bound to gradually come down. © Weibo So far, OPPO has announced it will launch a phone with 10x "lossless" zoom technology in the second quarter of this year. The phone will have a triple-lens camera structure including a 48-megapixel main camera, 120-degree ultra-wide lens and a telephoto lens. "Our 10x Lossless Zoom is mass-production-ready and will appear in a product soon," said Chuck Wang, Product Manager, OPPO.
  21. Aero India is a biennial event happening in India since 1996, and the program has slowly gained a lot of momentum. These trade shows are a perfect platform for companies to show-off their offerings, and in a rapidly developing market like India, the possibilities are limitless. While India has shared deeper roots with the then-USSR in terms of defence and aviation acquisitions, the tides are slowly turning. India is among the top defence equipment importers in the world, and with nascent domestic aviation manufacturing, targeting India as a potential customer is natural. For the aviation geeks out there, the show is a mesmerising experience. Not only does it offer newer civilian aircraft, but also demonstrates the capability of India's armed forces. This year, more than fifty aircrafts were on static display at Aero India. Aerobatic performances were held by numerous aircrafts, and we've listed down our favourites. 1. Dassault Rafale © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Rafale has become a household name in India now, but keeping aside the political controversies, it is among the most capable multirole fighter planes out there. It can perform air superiority, reconnaissance, ground support, as well as nuclear deterrence. The French Air Force primarily operates it, and Indian Air Force has placed an order of 36 aircraft. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The French Air Force (regionally called Armée de l'air) brought a couple of their Rafale's at Aero India, and they undoubtedly attracted the most people. The delta wing design provides higher maneuverability and the jet can reach a maximum speed of Mach 1.8 (1,900 km/h). It can also go as slow as 213km/h and take off as well as land on aircraft carriers. It is a symbol of French engineering and carries forward the legacy of Dassault's Mirage 2000 jets. 2. Sukhoi 30MKI © MensXP / Shivam Vahia It is a 4.5-generation air superiority aircraft developed by Russia and India has more than 250 of them in service. With state of the art avionics and thrust vectoring nozzles, it can perform a cobra manoeuvre in which it suddenly raises the nose momentarily to the vertical position and slightly beyond. This lets it reduce air speed instantly, providing an edge in air-to-air combat. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Indian variant can carry a BrahMos supersonic missile and employs a variety of weapons for ground-based offensive as well. It can also fly at double the speed of sound and pick up enemy at ranges in excess of 200kms. 3. LCA Tejas © MensXP / Shivam Vahia It is an indigenously developed aircraft and the first squadron was raised in July 2016. The complete structure is made of composite materials to reduce weight and increase performance. Just like the Rafale, it has a delta wing design for increased maneuverability. The air show depicted its exceedingly high rate of climb along with sharp turns to provide an edge in air-to-air combat. It features a complete glass cockpit along with a heads-up display and fly by wire technology for simpler handling. Aero India 2019 dazzled when Tejas rose to the sky, thundering amidst the much hyped Rafale and staple warhorse Sukhoi. 4. C17 Globemaster III © MensXP / Shivam Vahia Transport aircrafts like the C17 were another spectacular sight. United States Air Force brought their giant from Pearl Harbour, along with the P-8I Poseidon. The plane is made by Boeing and features four engines that enable it to carry more than 77,000 kgs of cargo. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The plane has multiple roles and can perform troop drop, strategic airlifting as well as relief operations. The Indian Air Force currently has 10 of these and they play a crucial role in maintaining logistics supply to the remote parts of the country. 5. Airbus A330neo © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Airbus A320neo have become a common sight in India thanks to a huge operational fleet of IndiGo, GoAir, Vistara, and Air India. The A330 is a wide-body aircraft that can carry up to 400 people in a single class configuration. The "NEO" stands for New Engine Option and new Rolls Royce Trent 7000 engines are extremely efficient in terms of operating costs. So far, only three have been built and the first scheduled flight of the A330 will be operated to Mumbai. The cockpit looks very similar to the A350 and the two share a lot of common design elements.
  22. The early hours of 21st February had sports fans on the edge of their seats. While everyone was waiting for the pulsating clash between Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the UEFA Champions League clash, actual carnage was happening somewhere else. The first One-Day International (ODI) between West Indies and England in Barbados was witnessing the return of Chris Gayle. And, there was no shortage of entertainment. After making his intentions pretty clear in the pre-match interview, the 'Universe Boss' stayed true to his word as he bludgeoned the England bowling attack to all parts of the ground. The Jamaican marauder slammed a blistering 135 which included three fours and 12 sixes. Owing to his ability to clear the ropes, Gayle also surpassed Shahid Afridi to record most number of sixes in international cricket. © AP The left-hander's breathtaking knock powered the hosts to a formidable total of 360 runs. But, if Gayle stole the limelight early on, the pivotal hundreds by Jason Roy (123) and Joe Root (102) ensured England - on the back of a six-wicket win - etched their name in the history books with the highest successful run-chase in ODI cricket. While the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown witnessed multiple individual brilliances that had cricket fans in awe, but there was one unlikely candidate whose particular shot became the talking point on social media. With the Windies already amassing 345 runs with one over to go, the instructions for the batsmen - Ashley Nurse and Devendra Bishoo - in the middle were quite predictable - score as many runs as possible. But, while everyone would've expected Nurse to play the big shots and improve their already-intimidating total, Bishoo surprised everyone with a gem of a shot. Did that really just happen a NUMBER 10 Bishoo batsmen just switch hit Adil Rashid for 6! How cricket has changed!?!? ð #WIvENG pic.twitter.com/7aOG9nkckN — James (@Surreycricfan) February 20, 2019 After taking a couple of singles on the first two deliveries of the final over, the West Indies spinner produced a spectacular 'switch hit' off Adil Rashid. Flaying his premeditated shot, Bishoo smashed the England spinner from outside the off-stump to send the ball sailing over deep point for a big six. Such was the timing of his shot that the normal-looking stroke resulted in the maximum. Bishoo's unbelievable hit helped the Windies to equal the record for the most number of sixes in an ODI innings and, later, took social media by storm. Bowlers after seeing this. pic.twitter.com/3vzR4KY1QJ — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) February 20, 2019 Clever batting though knew rashid would bowl googly so hitting with the turn , into to the wind and targeting smaller part of the ground. — Ash (@Ayadav1808) February 20, 2019 Unbelievable — Super Joshi (@1SuperJoshi) February 20, 2019 can someone please explain Carlos Brathwaite what Carlos Brathwaite is supposed to do in international cricket?

  23. The ghastly suicide terror attack that resulted in the loss of lives of brave Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel continues to be condemned across the globe. While many have come up to aid the families of the martyrs, others have called for an immediate to isolate Pakistan for their alleged role in the Pulwama terror attack. The sports fraternity, too, has joined hands to do their bit in one of the darkest hours. While Virat Kohli was seen postponing the 'Indian Sports Honours' to show solidarity for the jawans, Virender Sehwag was seen offering educational support to the children of the slain soldiers. While Pakistan continues to face backlash following the terror strike, their decorated T20 tournament - Pakistan Super League (PSL) - is now in danger after losing its prime broadcaster. Are you ready for #KhelDeewanoKa? â³ pic.twitter.com/ZL8bLu4bAG — PakistanSuperLeague (@thePSLt20) February 14, 2019 IMG Reliance has pulled out from broadcasting the fourth edition of the PSL in protest against the Pulwama terrorist attack. The PSL 2019 had already become the butt of all jokes after the headliner Pitbull refused, at the last minute, to perform at the opening ceremony, leaving the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) red-faced. And, the latest development has further marred the league. "Due to unfortunate events a couple of days back which resulted in the death of Indian soldiers, IMG Reliance is pulling out with immediate effect, from offering broadcast production services for PSL. The incident that occurred is deeply regrettable," stated a mail addressed to Sohaib Sheikh and Kamil Khan of the PCB, the content of which is in possession of PTI. Being the lone producers of the event, IMG Reliance's pull-out means that the PSL 2019 will go off the air unless the PCB brings in alternate production services, an official told TOI. PCB statement on production of #HBLPSL 2019 https://t.co/Pc7kV5P4rW — PCB Official (@TheRealPCB) February 17, 2019 In response, the PCB also issued a statement wherein it expressed disappointment at IMG Reliance's move, claiming that "sports and politics should be kept separate". “We have been informed by IMG Reliance that they will be unable to partner with us for the remaining HBL PSL 2019 and PCB has reserved all its rights. The PCB always had a contingency plan in place, and we are confident we will be in a position to announce the new partner on Monday after the completion of the formalities,” PCB's Managing Director Wasim Khan said. “The PCB has also noted the recent turn of events and expresses its extreme disappointment as we have always believed and emphasised that sports and politics should be kept separate. History tells us that sports, particularly cricket, have always played a key role in building bridges between people and countries," he added. Voicing PCB's dissent at the covering of Pakistan PM Imran Khan's portrait at the Cricket Club of India (CCI), Wasim said: “Unfortunately, denying India cricket fans the right to follow HBL PSL by blocking all digital coverage as well as covering or removing portrait of former Pakistan cricket captain and Prime Minister Imran Khan and other legendary cricketers from one of the most historic cricket clubs and venues are highly regrettable actions. The PCB intends to take up these incidents with the BCCI and the ICC at the upcoming ICC committee meeting in Dubai later this month”.

  25. Imagine you're on a date and everything's going well, by the end of it, you drop your date home. You lean in expecting a kiss but as you start to extend yourself in a half-hug, to your surprise they shrug away quickly with a pinched expression. You wonder what went wrong, and hope for a text later. But you never get that text. What went wrong? One of the possible reasons could be body odour. The thing is, a perfume or a deo can only protect you for so long. You need an organic and more permanent fix. Home made remedies fall in this category. Here are some of the home remedies that you could try: 1. Lavender Oil © Shutterstock Lavender stops the growth of the odor-causing bacteria. And the essence emanates a soft fragrance. Cornstarch and baking soda keep the skin dry, thereby preventing any accumulation of bacteria. You will need 10 drops of lavender essential oil along with 3 teaspoons of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Mix the lavender oil with the cornstarch and baking soda and store the mixture in a dark place for a couple of days. Try applying this daily in order to see a prominent difference. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar © Shutterstock Apple cider vinegar has acidic properties that kill and prevent any kind of bacterial formation, which in turn, prevents foul body odour. Take some apple cider vinegar and directly apply to your underarms and other body parts using a cotton ball. Alternatively, in half a cup of ACV mix a cup of water and then use a deodorant. 3. Tea Bags © Shutterstock Tea bags have tannins present in the tea that keep the skin dry and prevent any sweat formation. Just bring the water to a boil and add the tea bags. Pour this tea into your regular bath and soak in it for 15-20 minutes. Repeat at least thrice a week to see effective results. 4. Lemon Drops © Shutterstock Lemon drops have ingrained acidic levels that lower the pH of our body, making it difficult for the bacteria to survive on our skin. Just cut the lemon into two halves and rub it directly on your underarms. Allow it to dry completely. Wash it off with lukewarm water. If you have sensitive skin, you can dilute lemon juice with a few drops of water and then apply it on the underarms. 5. Rose Water © Shutterstock Rose water is an astringent which reduces the size of the pores present on the skin, and this decreases sweat production. It additionally leaves behind a floral fragrance. Just mix rose water with apple cider vinegar. Store this mixture in a bottle and spray on your underarms and other body parts whenever required.
