  1. India won the 2018-19 Border-Gavaskar Trophy with a 2-1 lead which makes this series victory the first by any Asian country on Australian soil. After Day 5 of the fourth and final Test match saw no gameplay due to rain and bad light at the Sydney Cricket Ground, the Men in Blue were presented with the trophy at the award ceremony and one could see how much the victory meant to the squad. Loud roars and hugs surrounded the team as Virat Kohli lifted the cup in front of a rather supportive Australian crowd. Jai Hind #TeamIndia ð®ð³ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/meUaiPq2YJ — BCCI (@BCCI) January 7, 2019 “By far, this is my biggest achievement. Has to be on the top of the pile. When we won the World Cup (in 2011), I was a young player. I saw the others get emotional. This series has given us a different identity as a team. What we've been able to achieve is something really to be proud of,” Kohli expressed to the media in the post-match session. Understandably, when you are not one of the key players of a roster, you do not appreciate enough, the gravity of winning a tournament, let alone a World Cup. Kohli's comments can therefore be overlooked. What cannot be overlooked is the Indian cricket coach Ravi Shastri comparing this victory to the 1983 World Cup victory in England which was the first time ever India as a team lifted the World Cup ever since it came into existence. 'This is bigger than World Cup 1983 win,' an ecstatic Ravi Shastri reacts to India's maiden Test series win in Australia - https://t.co/2IYMtYadxq #AUSvsIND #INDvsAUS pic.twitter.com/feuii9v3jb — DNA (@dna) January 7, 2019 So, was Team India's recent success in Australia bigger than the 1983 win? Here are some facts that will help you figure it out yourself: As mentioned above, it was for the very first time that Team India lifted a World Cup trophy since its inception. It was a win at the biggest stage of them all against the reigning two-time World Cup champions, the Windies which included some of the biggest, most worrisome names of the time like Sir Viv Richards and Andy Roberts. Team India's journey to the final was not exactly made up of cotton candy as they faced elimination just before the semi finals began and had lost two straight games to Australia and the West Indies. The tournament completely transformed Kapil Dev into a legend, whose 175-run innings against Zimbabwe, to prevent India's exit from the tournament, is considered to be one of the performances by any Indian till date. #OnThisDay in 1983, India won the @cricketworldcup! ð®ð³ð pic.twitter.com/sksXdNeghT — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 25, 2018 On the other hand, Virat Kohli's team went against what is considered to be one of the weakest Australian sides without the like of Steve Smith and David Warner (banned for ball-tampering) included in the roster. That is not to say that Team India didn't deserve the Test series victory. With Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant coming up big during the series and Jasprit Bumrah's heroics completely justifying the accolades, Team India must relish this historical win. However, when compared to the 1983, this win is nowhere as big as the World Cup.
  2. Bollywood is famous across the globe for its legendary bevy of actors and directors, their calibre and the kind of stories they can create to entertain masses, while also delivering some really good messages through their work. However, if we look beyond the commercial appeal, the unnecessary glitz and running around trees, Bollywood also has some really cool stuff to offer. Transformative looks are one such thing and we, as an audience, like to appreciate such well done jobs, whenever we see it. So here are our top 12 picks of the greatest transformations looks in Bollywood in recent times: 1. Aamir Khan Sure enough, we had to begin with Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood. Aamir sure has a lot of 'hits' under his belt but some of his very prominent transformations till date would include titles like 'Ghajini', 'PK', 'Dangal' and more recently, as Firangi in 'Thugs Of Hindostan' besides many other superior characters he has portrayed. © Geetha Arts © Aamir Khan Productions © Yash Raj Films 2. Randeep Hooda Now again, Randeep Hooda has proved to the audience that he is an actor of great potential. From Imtiaz Ali's 'Highway' to Omung Kumar's 'Sarbjit', Randeep left a lasting impact in our minds. However, his transformation in the latter film was so true to life, it's commendable! © Pooja Entertainment © Pooja Entertainment 3. Shah Rukh Khan King Khan remains a ubiquitous personality in the Hindi film industry. A truly versatile actor, SRK has also tried his hands on transforming himself for specific roles. No one can forget the 'Dard-E-Disco' song from 'Om Shanti Om' that reveal his glazed six-packs, or 'Happy New Year' wherein he went a step further. SRK's portrayal of Gaurav in 'Fan' was superb too besides the uncanny resemblance! © Red Chillies Entertainment © Red Chillies Entertainemnt © Yash Raj Films 4. Farhan Akhtar An all-rounder in the industry, Farhan also happens to be a great actor apart from being a director, singer, screenwriter and what not! However, his depiction of Milkha Singh in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' helped him make his own niche as an actor in the industry. He completely transformed himself to get into the role. © ROMP Pictures © ROMP Pictures 5. Rajkummar Rao Another rising star of Bollywood, who has been constantly treating us to quality films over the last few years, Rajkummar has done a commendable job in films like 'Newton', 'Trapped' and shows like 'Bose: Dead Or Alive'. However, Rao's transformation in 'Trapped' and more specifically in 'Raabta' as a 324-year-old man was terrific! © Phantom Films © Maddock Films © Maddock Films 6. Hrithik Roshan Hrithik Roshan also has a few competitive looks under his belt, but when we talk about transformations per se, one cannot ignore the good work that was done on the actor in 'Dhoom 2'. © Yash Raj Films © Yash Raj Films 7. Ranbir Kapoor One of the best transformations of recent time, Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt and the transformation over the years has been one of the most memorable journeys to trace. Ranbir's looks were so close to reality, one could only marvel at the resemblances and the acting. © Rajkumar Hirani Films © Rajkumar Hirani Films © Rajkumar Hirani Films 8. Amitabh Bachchan Of course, BigB gave us the most awesome transformation back in 2009 when 'Paa' released. BigB's transformation into a 12-year-old boy with progeria was well-created, but more recently, '102 Not Out' also did a very fine job at it. Dattatreya, as a 102-year-old man, looked very realistic, to say the least. © MAD Entertainment Ltd © SPE Films 9. Akshay Kumar Though the movie is yet to release, '2.0' will soon allow Akshay Kumar to officially join the list of incredible transformations. But with the trailer already out, we can see for ourselves the cool transformation he has undergone for his role in the upcoming film. © Lyca Productions © Lyca Productions 10. Rishi Kapoor Just as the man maintains his wit, it is nice to see another veteran actor join the list. Rishi Kapoor as 92-year-old Amarjeet in 'Kapoor & Sons' was almost unrecognisable. Fans had some really good stuff to say about his look in the movie too. © Dharma Productions © Dharma Productions 11. Emraan Hashmi Though we aren't sure how many of you are aware of it, Emraan Hashmi apparently did a movie called 'Mr. X' in 2015 in which he sported a rather “different” look. Looks good enough to be put on the list, no? © Vishesh Films © Vishesh Films 12. Saif Ali Khan Saif Ali Khan's upcoming movie 'Hunter' will present the actor as a naga sadhu, and some time back a leaked image from the set of the movie began doing rounds on social media. The look sure looks promising, and somehow does a good job of reminding us of Jack Sparrow. © Filmfare Weren't these transformations really cool to look at? Did we miss any that you personally enjoyed? Let us know!
  3. No Bollywood movie seems to be complete without a convincing antagonist who contrasts the virtues of the protagonist and surfaces as the major threat that would allow the plot to develop and lead the audience to their moment of catharsis by dessimating himself. Over the years, Bollywood has gifted us with numerous baddies who have left a mark in our memories. Some we hate to the core, some scare the wits out of us and yet there are a few whose performances you can't seem to negate, no matter what. Well, listed below are 8 such marvellous performances by Bollywood antagonists in movies who have made it to our list of fave baddies of recent times. 1. Alauddin Khilji - 'Padmaavat' © Bhansali Productions Of course we had to begin with Ranveer Singh's portrayal of the cruel King Khilji in 'Padmaavat'. For those of you who have seen the man in action will relate that those sinister eyes would haunt you for a much longer time. Ranveer as Khilji set a new benchmark for newer bad guys to come. His narcissism is palpable, his manipulations mess with your head, while his demonic obsession grosses you out, and you come to loathe him through and through. 2. Rameshwar aka Tauji - 'Raid' © Panorama Studios Though surely not as terrorising as Khilji, Tauji played by Saurabh Shukla comes across as a deadly menace any honest officer would have a field time weeding out. Tauji is a MP but most importantly he is the don of Sitagarh, who has evaded taxes for the longest time. His tactics let you peek into the minds of such corrupt politicians who threaten to disrupt state cabinets by the use of their might and (black) money. They would do anything to maintain their autonomy and power, going as far as killing government officials if need be. 3. Bhallaladev - 'Baahubali 2' © Arka Media Works Another marvel of an antagonist India got to behold and look deeper into was king Bhallaladev of Mahishmati. The ruthless tyrant played by Rana Daggubati in the franchise, is known as much for his skills as a warrior, as he is known for his thirst for power. He has no room in his heart for empathy and compassion, as well as displays no signs of greatness in character once he stoops down to kill for power and the throne. His is one such character in the duology who undergoes major transformations and appears to be devil in disguise. 4. Tony - 'Naam Shabana' © plan C studios The role played by Prithiviraj Sukumaran, is one thrilling bad guy to behold. Tony, who is later found out to be Mikhail, is an international arms dealer and supplier, who also happens to top Indian secret service's 'most wanted' list. He is cunning, deadly and knows how to effectively get away with homicide and treason without leaving any clues in his wake. However, he also comes across as a bad guy you would want to see get punished because he is that repulsive. 5. Vikram Sethi - 'Ittefaq' © Dharma Productions This mystery-thriller was a rather fresh take on the Rashomon effect and Sidharth Malhotra delivered an impactful performance as the lead hero as well as the antagonist in the movie. Vikram is a British author of Indian origin, who is turned into a suspect and as the story moves on it is revealed how Vikram uses his cunning to change the entire case against him. He may not be the ideal bad guy we are accustomed to, but he is pretty ruthless and shrewd when it comes to getting what he wants and how he wants it. 6. Abu Usman - 'Tiger Zinda Hai' © Yash Raj Films One of Sajjad Delafrooz's most memorable performances in Hindi movie, Abu Usman in 'Tiger Zinda Hai' is terrifying to say the least. Portraying a merciless terrorist, his character lets us see the possible ways in which a terrorist thinks and behaves. His ruthlessness and insensitivity catches on to you and slowly rubs your face into the helpless situation where you can only wish to see him being brought to justice and live through similar pain he induces on others. 7. Madhavrao & Amit Shellar - 'Kaabil' © Filmkart Productions The Roy brothers seem to have a knack for playing baddies and we are totally not complaining about it. The duo played the role of Shellar brothers in Hrithik-Yami starrer 'Kaabil' and have won many critical acclaims for their performances. Rohit Roy as a local troublemaker and Ronit Roy as a promoter and politician let you witness how powerful people get (away with) whatever they want. The spite and insensitivity the two brothers exude is enough to make you nauseous and well, we are glad when Rohan brings them to justice. 8. Kabir - 'Begum Jaan' © Shree Venkatesh Film Another character that is sure to leave a mark on your memory is Chunky Pandey's portrayal of Kabir in 'Begum Jaan'. Having previously seen the actor play comic characters only intensifies the contrast and brings depth to his devilish performance. Kabir's methods of intimidation are repulsive and gross that makes the character appear all the more shady. Kabir truly epitomises how it must be when a person is said to be the devil's ally. What do you think about these antagonists? Are any of them your favourites too?
  4. A father and son share a rather inscrutable equation, which is often regarded as a rocky terrain to tread by both the parties, mostly once the son attains adulthood. While it is believed that a son shares a much deeper bond with his mother, what is often left unsaid is that a son and a father continue to share a bond that isn't marked by an overt display of affection or endearments, and yet each remains in the other's thoughts and prayers. Dads give it off to you when you become unruly, they have your back all along the wobbly patch of life and they always shadow you, keeping a watch out and a step forward, even before you can form the sentence to call out for help. A son might not always express what his father means to him, but continues to hail him as his personal hero, even as he challenges his father's orders or argues over other issues of lesser importance. No matter the disagreements and clashes in their point of view, he always acknowledges his father's presence and importance in his life. While there have been numerous, successful movies in Bollywood that have captured the myriad shades of this relationship, we picked 5 recent Bollywood films that have managed to do justice to the father-son dynamics. 1. 102 Not Out (2018) © SPE Films India '102 Not Out' is quintessentially the best representation of how a father-son dynamic remains at the very roots, even after both of them enter the twilight of their lives. A father, without ever making it obvious, selflessly continues to look out for his son and love him from afar. Though misunderstandings loom large even at this stage of their lives, love ultimately triumphs over the petty tussles. Before Dattatraya departs from this life, he ensures that Babu lives a full life, free of life's drudgeries and finds ways of remaining happy after his father is gone. 2. Sanju (2018) © Rajkumar Hirani Films It is common knowledge that Sanjay Dutt has always shared a rocky relationship with his father for a number of reasons. Yet, Sanjay Dutt continued to regard his father as an almighty saviour. 'Sanju' beautifully captures all the bumps that marked their relationship, be it fighting against his father's opinions on his acting skills or not living by his father's ideologies. Yet, when life brought him to the edge, he turned to his father for help and Sunil Dutt continued to place his faith and hope on his son regardless of the shortcomings. 3. Mulk (2018) © Benaras Media Works This may not come across as an ideal father-son relationship but on a closer look, Bilaal Ali Mohammed's portrayal of Shahid's father significantly captures a father's innate essence. He depicts a father who places undying trust and faith on this son he has reared and would move mountains to protect and love. Bilaal continuously tried to bring Shahid back from devil's side and onto the path of repentance, but when he realises there remains no coming back for his son, he literally gives up on Shahid, thereby exhibiting a father's wrath in the truest sense. 4. Chef (2017) © T-Series 'Chef', the official Bollywood remake of the Hollywood movie by the same name, is the story of Roshan Kalra who is a Michelin star chef at New York's Gulli restaurant. Having gotten fired from his job, he has to come back home to his son and wife in Kochi. The trip helps Roshan to mend his relationships that had gone sour, especially his bond with his son. This story beautifully charts out how the duo reclaims and rediscovers their relationship, which ends up changing their lives and they set out on a culinary journey together. 5. Dear Dad (2016) © Peppermint Studios A coming of age movie in the truest sense, this one explores how a young son steps up to stand by his father's side, much against the inner conflict he faces. Based on a difficult subject, the story follows the son's battles of coming to terms with his father's sexuality. It truthfully showcases how testing situations can become when family becomes the one to hurt you and how you make peace with the reality of the situation. If you haven't already, be sure to watch these movies at the earliest.
  5. We don't need to remind you how the whirlwind romance of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas managed to flood our timelines all day, every day for a while back there. So much so, that even those who could not care less about the couple, knew literally everything about their story. What started as casual dating from the Met Gala turned into a beautiful relationship, as they got engaged on August 18th with a traditional Roka ceremony in Mumbai. © Instagram Priyanka and Nick, at present, are simply enjoying their time together as a newly-engaged couple and the shutterbugs can't get enough of them. From vacationing at happening destinations to planning romantic getaways at their favourite spot in the Mammoth Mountain, California, they are living a beautiful life indeed. While Nick has spent a lot of his time there, this was the first time he took Priyanka along with him. A man and the mountains. ð· @priyankachopra A post shared by Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) on Sep 2, 2018 at 4:12pm PDT Speaking of vacations, they do seem to be on a roll don't they? And here we can't even afford to be jealous of them! © Instagram © Instagram © Instagram The duo made their first appearance together at the Met Gala, where they met and walked for Ralph Lauren. Talking about how they actually met, our Desi girl told Jimmy Kimmel in an interview, "Yeah, we were on the same table and we already knew each other. So he was like 'Hey, you wanna go together?' And I was like 'Yeah, OK, let's go together'. It ended up working out." © Instagram Both Nick and Priyanka have aced in their respective professional lives and have millions of fans across the globe. While Nick is an acclaimed pop singer, Priyanka, on the other hand, after ruling the Indian film industry, is now eyeing to conquer Hollywood as well. Priyanka, who does not know the meaning of taking a backseat, has been on the rise ever since she came into the spotlight. In 2000 she was crowned as Miss World and since then, she has only soared further in her career. 12 years of knowing these girls and in minutes they get all love struck by the #lovebug... thank you @nickjonas and our families. Thank you to the sisters and all the girls at St. Catherine's orphanage for opening your hearts to us again. I'll see you next time A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Aug 20, 2018 at 5:05am PDT From being an actor, a singer to even starting her own production house Purple Pebble, she has donned many hats and has mastered them all. In 2017, we saw her being ranked 97 in the Forbes list of most powerful women in the world. As per reports, PeeCee's yearly income is around $10 million (Rs 64 crores) and her net worth is estimated to be at $28 million (Rs 200 crore). A post shared by PC_globaldomination (@pc_globaldomination) on Sep 2, 2018 at 3:31pm PDT Priyanka gets a major chunk of her earnings from the movies she picks. She has also changed the brand game and represents many brands across the globe. She has done over 50 films and her career in the West is soaring high. She has worked in Hollywood movies like 'Baywatch', 'A Boy Like Jake' and was the lead character in the ABC series 'Quantico'. In her latest Hollywood project, she is soon to be seen in the upcoming rom-com 'Isn't It Romantic', starring Liam Hemsworth, Rebel Wilson, and Adam DeVine. More candids from yesterday's party ðâ¤ï¸ #priyankachopra #nickjonas #nickyanka #priyankanickengagement A post shared by Priyanka&Nick (@nickyanka18) on Aug 19, 2018 at 4:02am PDT Nick Jonas, on the other hand, has a net worth of $25 million (Rs 171 crore). Jonas has also ventured in acting and was seen in 'Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle'. However, we can't help but wonder how many zeroes will be added to their cheque in case they star together in a project? Pretty sure it will result in more fabulous vacations that we can only dream of going on.
  6. Think of sartorial sensibilities for 30,000 feet above and you'd be blessed with names of a lot of stylish men. #AirportStyle — as they call it — is now a move of the top dogs and is soon, even trickling down to the ordinary. After all, you can find the love of your life anywhere, right? Even at a boarding terminal; so you rather be prepared. Saif Ali Khan, though married, exudes his personal swagger even while flying. But mind you: he may be a high-flying, business class traveller, but he hardly dresses the part; that's just his way of life and we're no one to complain. Because after all, he's a Nawab, who's always raining on his own parade. So, for his recent airport outfit in Mumbai, he did exactly that. © Viral Bhayani Going by this visual above, Saif's style slogan seems simple: walk into a terminal like you're getting into bed (and just keeping rolling in it). Throw in a bandana in the combo (a style-signature), Kolhapuris (because, he's in an Independence Day hangover) and headphones, because "I don't care if you're shouting my name, bro". Takeaway: whether at the airport or in situations outside, Khan's style is chill at all times. Does this mean dressing up adversely for #AirportStyle is a trend that's now officially dead? © Viral Bhayani That said, as much as we say and call his 'chill', we must appreciate the fact that this is a unique, well-planned out style flex. Sure, there's just a T-shirt and trackpants in there, but notice the timepiece on the wrist, tinted sunnies, colour-twinning with the bandana and headphones and, well, that Louis Vuitton bag, that's the single-most symbol of his bank balance here. Worth just a few lakhs maybe? And though, we would have loved some trimming on the beard, let's just call this his lazy day! © Viral Bhayani Clearly, this is a reminder that Airport style isn't something that needs to be forced down one's throat. What style-route you want to take or whether you even want to really care is something you don't need to push yourself into. Much like Saif Ali Khan, men like Shah Rukh Khan too prefer chill dressing over being overtly dramatic (or forcibly put-together) at the airport. Looks like, bigger the bank balance, more the modesty. Since when did this become a famous man-thing?
