  1. If you are blinded by the fact that the movie is headed by a star kid, then you are being unfair to the story of an unsung hero who we have completely ignored and didn’t talk about much. It’s the story of brave Gunjan Saxena, who became one of the first two women to fly in a combat zone during the 1999 Kargil War. In all the chaos of nepotism, we might forget that the movie is based on Gunjan Saxena and also stars actors like Pankaj Tripathi and Vineet Kumar Singh. The movie does dramatize Gunjan’s journey but manages to not go overboard with it. Sharan keeps the tone of the movie very humble and true to what the officer told him. The movie does deserve a watch because of the director’s attempt as not much information was available on Gunjan Saxena. The movie goes beyond the aspect of just celebrating Gunjan as it focuses on how supportive a father can be in the times when women were not allowed to chase their dreams. It’s a story of inspiration and courage even after being bogged down by the patriarchal notions. Coming to performances, Janhvi Kapoor did a decent job in portraying Gunjan Saxena. Well, it was expected more from her but she fell flat in the sequences where she had to be emotionally powerful. There’s a particular scene where she had to show that women are being suppressed by men but Janhvi couldn’t convey it powerfully. But, in the happy scenes, Janhvi did her bit and you would love her chirpiness. © Netflix Pankaj Tripathi as Gunjan’s father will make you fall in love with his character because he does no drama while portraying and keeps it very real. He is a father who wants his daughter to chase her dreams. Pankaj has, time and again, proved that he is someone who can pull off the easiest and most difficult of the roles. In the movie, he is a symbol of the progressive thought process and a man who believes in the concept of woman empowerment. © Netflix Vineet Kumar Singh as an Army officer depicts a more common portrayal of how men back in the 90s were. Back in those days, it was hard for men to accept that women can be pilots too, and here, Gunjan had joined the Air Force and is proving the old set notion wrong. Vineet is used as a symbol for men who can’t let their egos be defeated by women. His character tries everything possible to make it hard for Gunjan to survive in the male-dominated world. Vineet adds his charm to the character and he captures every scene in the movie. © Netflix Angad Bedi got less screen space and he plays the character of Gunjan’s brother. He is a metaphor for men who want to safeguard the interests of the women in the family. He is not very comfortable with Gunjan entering into the territory of men. He wants to protect her from the harsh society but in the end, he realizes that he doesn’t have to stop his sister from growing in his life. © Netflix Manav Vij and Ayesha Raza are also those actors who convincingly portray their characters. © Netflix © Netflix The problem with the movie is that it feels so rushed at the end. As a viewer, you would want to see more of the Kargil sequence and would be left a little less satiated. It would have been interesting if there were more of Kargil sequence. The editing and cinematography do give justice to the movie as they are done in accordance with the tone of the movie. I also loved the sound design aspect of the movie. In a nutshell, the script is good and you can enjoy it as a one-time watch. Also see it for Pankaj Tripathi, Vineet Kumar Singh, and Manav Vij. View the full article

Wishing love and luck to the team for this inspiring film. #GunjanSaxena https://t.co/yHxEa4eBk6 — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) August 1, 2020 The film is based on the life of Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena who made history by becoming the first Indian woman in combat during the Kargil War.

However looking at the trailer, looks like the star cast has done a wonderful job and this looks like a promising tale of courage. View the full article
  3. When the whole world was battling with COVID 19, our film industry is dealing with the loss of two legends, Irrfan and Rishi Kapoor . But, these two legends have left us with so many memories from their past. Well, the two were the ones who lived their life to the fullest and it was a treat to see the two of them together sharing the screen in Nikkhil Advaniâs D-Day. Thereâs a scene of the two actors thatâs going viral on the internet. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Advani recalled how Irrfan tricked Rishi Kapoor into staying in a desert for the scene they were shooting in Kutch by bribing him with âchicken and alcoholâ. Yes, you heard it right. At least one thing is for sure. There will be jashan in the heavens tonight. #RIPLegend #RishiKapoor #IrfanKhan pic.twitter.com/V4qXyWjeqp â Nikkhil Advani (@nikkhiladvani) April 30, 2020 Recalling the old days, Advani said, âWe were shooting in the desert and while Irrfan and a lot of team bunked out in tents, Chintuji would drive two hours back to the hotel. He was averse to early morning shoots but there was this sunrise shot we had to shoot with him and he was refusing to comply, saying, âIâm an actor, not a doodhwalaâ. He remembered how Irrfan bribed Rishi Kapoor with âchicken jungli and alcoholâ and finally managed to make his stay in the desert for the shot. âIt was a near-impossible feat in Kutch, but he delivered on his promise and I got my shot,â added the filmmaker. Not just the film industry people but fans are also missing the two legends and are remembering the scene where they saw the two of them together. Iâm just in shock,I just saw #dday movie yesterday night in which both #legends r in the movie sharing screen & at the end of the movie both have death scene & today both #Legends are not among us.But u both r always stay in our #Heart Sir. @irrfank sir ð½ @chintskap sir ð½ pic.twitter.com/X42oVp6zos â AMRIT GURDASPURIYA (@iamgurdaspuriya) April 30, 2020 In the movie #DDay both #IrrfanKhan and #RishiKapoor died in short interval of time.

  4. Tom Hardy with a receding hairline is not something we thought we'll see anytime soon, but oh well. The first trailer for Capone, a biopic on Al Capone, is out and Tom Hardy is looking a little too sick playing the gangster as he's riddled with disease. While multiple stories have been told and retold about the notorious gangster over the years, Capone dramatically promises to bring to everyone something new - an untold story. © Vertical Entertainment Basically, the movie will show the later years of Al Capone - hence the receding hairline - as he "lives like a king in Florida". They even managed to slip in a minor romantic plotline - Capone and his cigar as there are barely any scenes where it's not hanging from his mouth. Based on true events, the movie is about the Chicago mob boss' life after he was released from prison after an 11-year stint and how his health is dealing because of syphilis along with showing signs of dementia. © Vertical Entertainment But even though he's diseased, he's still deadly as the trailer shows him going on a killing spree towards the end of the trailer. Here's the trailer: Al Capone did suffer through a lot of diseases before he ultimately passed away on January 25 after suffering from a cardiac arrest a couple of days earlier. This is obviously the latest Al Capone movie in an already long list but since it's supposed to be an untold story, it'll be exciting to see how Tom Hardy portrays him. Actually it already looks quite promising. View the full article
  5. Calling a remake of a game the 'greatest game of this generation' is quite bold and sometimes risky, but in the case of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, that statement will hold true even after a decade. While I had played the original way back in 1997 as a child, I didn't remember the finer details of the game before I started playing the review copy of this game. The original was by far the biggest game I had ever played as a child. However the remake of the game made me remember why I loved the game in the first place. I've always been a fan of great story-telling and Square Enix hit it out of the park with their latest release. To the uninitiated, this may feel like a cash-grab since most remakes tend to be that, but Square Enix made enough changes and additions to warrant the remake a must-buy game this generation at full price. © MensXP_Square Enix Remaking a game is quite ambitious, simply because fans of the franchise have many memories attached to the original. It is an enormous task to remake a game and satisfy fans of the game; which Square Enix manages to achieve easily with the reimagination of Final Fantasy 7. It's more of a modern interpretation of the classic story we love but is far more expansive when it comes to the lore. It is a faithful remake that also detaches itself from the original with much flair and grace. Every character, iconic locations is a reminder of everything that was left to the imagination way back in 1997. Every key location is instantly recognisable and it leaves you awe as modern graphics make the environments look more realistic, believable and immersive than ever before. © MensXP_Square Enix The game follows and tells the story of Cloud Strife, a sword-for-hire mercenary that is working with an eco-terrorist/eco freedom fighter group 'Avalanche' to destroy the Mako reactors owned by the evil corporation Shinra Power Company. The company has been harnessing the power of Mako (a precious resource of the planet) and rules the region of Midgar with fascists laws and beliefs. Mako Energy is the life source for the planet and Shinra's greed for higher profit margins is killing the planet which motivates the eco-freedom fighter group to destroy reactors across the city to put an end to Shinra's abuse of the precious resource. While the plot of the game remains similar to the original, Square Enix has added entirely new sequences to flesh out the plot even more. For example, after blowing up the first reactor, you get to walk through the upper-city of Midgar and see how citizens react to the loss of the reactor. You see a part of the city in flames and see direct consequences of your decision to blow up the reactor. Some sequences shed more light on Avalanche's motivations and give more background on the politics of Midgar. Some sequences even have revelations that were not addressed in the original which makes this remake worth the full price. Square Enix explores many grey areas with the story this time around; making it a more compelling story than ever before. © MensXP_Square Enix Having said that, some additions have been added to extend the overall gameplay time where the content is more fluff than having any relevance to the story. While these sequences aren't really important, it still was fun to play these sequences right before major climax moments. Sure, some people may find these moments annoying, however, we found it to be extra lore to soak in that was not present in the original game. © MensXP_Square Enix To make a plot compelling, the voice acting, cut-scenes and key moments need to be executed to perfection. Square Enix managed to achieve this with great moments in the story thanks to great voice acting for characters. We originally played the game in English but could not feel the emotional connection as the voice-acting was not at par. However, in Japanese, the voice-acting takes key moments to the next level. You can feel the emotion in each dialogue and instantly get familiar with close relationships between Tifa, Barret, Wedge, Biggs, and rest of the supporting cast. There's a lot humour, romance, drama and tension between the main cast which adds to the overall plot during key moments. © MensXP_Square Enix While the story is very engaging that kept us going, the gameplay mechanics was another factor that played a key role in wanting us to play the game non-stop. The battle system has changed from the original where it is more action-orientated than turn-based however it does amp up the difficulty at the same time. You can perform melee attacks and pause the game with the X button to get into the more strategic mode. While slowed down, you can switch between character and perform magic attacks, special abilities and assess your enemies to formulate a strategy. We advise using the “Assess materia" as the very first ability in every battle to figure out the weaknesses of your enemies. This new battle mode is highly addicting and makes you want to plan every battle you approach. What makes this battle-system work is the fact that is extremely fluid. If the new battle-system was more obtrusive, our opinion would have been entirely different. © MensXP_Square Enix The key to beating every opponent is to figure out their weaknesses and staggering them in order to bombard them with attacks as they are unable to defend themselves. This is also applicable to bosses and sometimes you will find yourself battling for 30 minutes at times due to the complex nature of battles and the fact that bosses keep transferring changing their weaknesses with each transformation. Changing characters during battles is absolutely crucial as it gives more time for your main character to heal up. When changing to a different character, the enemy AI automatically changes focus to the character you're controlling which can be handy during intense battles. Whether you are a Final Fantasy fan or not, we encourage everyone to experience the game and the story whenever they can. The game's narrative is very friendly for newcomers as well and doesn't need you to know the lore from previous games. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake may not be superior to the original due to the fact it isn't the full story and Square Enix will release is subsequent episodes sometime later. It still manages to come close and accomplishes what was expected from Square Enix. It exists alongside the original gracefully and is a must-play for every gamer who likes good stories. The Final Say With beautiful graphics, immersive worlds, awesome gameplay and believable characters, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a faithful yet bold remake of the original. It improves upon its origins and offers new experiences that make the game a faithful remake of the original. The game excels at retelling a story in a more modern setting with a great combat system that complements the overall game beautifully. With compelling voice-acting, well-directed cut-scenes and fluid gameplay, it is by far the best game of this generation yet. PSA: Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, shipments of Final Fantasy 7 Remake's physical copies to India have been delayed. However, you can still grab a copy by topping up your PlayStation Wallet.

  6. Salman Khan recently opened up about his lockdown story which has left his fandom terrified
  7. Every kind of love thatâs celebrated is worth sharing. When you love hard, and as purely as the feeling itself, itâs hard for the world to not get a whiff of your rapid heartbeat or roiling emotions. You see, that is how love works in our world. There is no timeline to it. It sees no cultural or linguistic barriers. There is no stopping it against different skin colours or places of worship, and when it finally does arrive, it brings us to our knees, quite literally. © Instagram Ace Kings XI Punjab player and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell who recently got engaged to his girlfriend Vini Raman would agree with this from personal experience. Because when all else failed, it took Maxwell to drop to his knees and turn his then-girlfriend into his current fiance, and future wife. Before we get to that part, letâs take a quick look at Maxwell and Viniâs little-known love story. © Instagram According to tabloids, the first wave of speculation about Maxwell and Viniâs âfriendshipâ started doing the rounds when Vini posted a picture of herself with Maxwell back in August 2017. The post came with no captions, and to this day comments on the picture is disabled. Still, since actions speak louder than words, the picture spoke volumes. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@vini.raman) Both look pretty close and comfortable in each other's company in the picture. And though not much is known about their initial phase of dating, it is believed that the two first met at a Melbourne Stars event, a domestic cricket team Maxwell represents. © Instagram As for Vini, she is a Melbourne-born and brought-up, Indian-origin Tamilian who also happens to be a certified pharmacist. In fact, it has always been Vini herself who would often share pictures of herself and âbest friendâ Maxwell on the âGram, along with other cryptic captions every now and then. View this post on InstagramWe're the best of friends... except for when the jenga comes out ð¬ #topdeckA post shared by (@vini.raman) Besides popping up on Viniâs feed now and then, and going on a Europe trip together, Maxwell and Vini succeeded in keeping speculations rife about their relationship status for a long time. This was until Maxwell took Vini as his plus one to the Australian Cricket Awards in February last year and even posted their first picture together on his personal Instagram account. The gossip mills took this as an official announcement of their budding romance. View this post on InstagramAwesome night at Crown for the Australian cricket awards. Congrats to @patcummins30 and @a_healy who both had incredible years! Personally I thought @vini.raman was best on ground last night, she looked absolutely stunning! ð A huge thanks to @nadeneduncanstylist , @marquisebridal , @calibreaustralia , @lajeenartistry , @valerejewellery & @olgabergofficial #australiancricketawards #crown #calibre #marquisebridalA post shared by (@gmaxi_32) This was soon followed by pictures of the coupleâs trip to Paris, though Vini was otherwise quite diligent about filling the gaps with her own set of Instagram posts which captured their blooming romance. However, earlier this year, soon after taking Vini as his plus one to the Australian Cricket Awards for the second consecutive year, Maxwell made things official by announcing his engagement to girlfriend Vini Raman on Instagram. View this post on InstagramðA post shared by (@gmaxi_32) But according to Maxwell, a lot went on before this picture-perfect moment. Things that toppled all his plans for a memorable proposal, turned it into a ânightmareâ and ended up bringing him to his knees instead. During an interview with Cricket Australia Maxwell shared how a perfect proposal for Vini would have been on a beach during sunset, but how it was everything otherwise in reality. When his initial plan failed, Maxwell asked Vini to meet him in a park near Port Melbourne. It was late in the afternoon and the park was full of people and school kids, so all the while he hid behind a tree to wait for Vini to reach the location. © Instagram But as his luck would have it, Vini walked past him in the wrong direction. So, Maxwell had to give her directions until she was in the exact place where he wanted her. When they finally met up, Maxwell wasnât feeling ready enough to pop the question just like that, so he tried to make her look in the other direction on the pretext of locating a cafe. © Instagram As soon as Vini turned around to check, and with no other way to do it ârightâ, Maxwell dropped on one knee and ended up proposing to Vini in a public park! View this post on InstagramLast night we celebrated our Indian engagement and I gave @gmaxi_32 a little teaser of what the wedding will be like 𥰠Shout out to both of our incredible families & all our friends who came to celebrate with us on such short notice - we are so grateful to be surrounded by some pretty amazing people â¤ï¸ Canât wait to get our hands on more photos from @shevan_j_photography ð¸ H&M - who else but ... @lajeenartistry Venue - @lincoln_of_toorak Catering - @tandooriflames Mandap - @rupalis_mandaps_melbourne Henna - @fadziiesmehndiandbeauty Lehgna - @gbcreations_ Arm candy - @gmaxi_32 ðA post shared by (@vini.raman) Soon, the pictures of Maxwell and his fiance made it to social media, which was later followed by pictures from their Indian engagement and a promise that the wedding will be a grand, Aussie + desi affair.

  8. This is a 27-year-old story where two titans of the technology world were competing with each other for the dominant personal computer spot. In August of 1997, Bill Gates saved Apple, which at the time was on the brink of bankruptcy. While most companies would let their rivals die out, this is the story of when two companies decided to help each other out instead of letting one fold. © Pinterest âBill, thank you. The worldâs a better place,â Jobs told Gates when Microsoft invested $150 million in Apple and offered free access to use Microsoft Office on Mac personal computers. This historic move saved Apple from going down under and in exchange, Apple dropped their lawsuit against Microsoft, claiming the company copied their operating system. 20 years ago this week, Steve Jobs was on the cover of @TIME, thanking @BillGates for "saving Apple." pic.twitter.com/AhUnLnOZ8t â Codecademy (@Codecademy) August 24, 2017However, 10 years later, the two CEOs met on-stage at the D5 tech conference and relived the memory of coming together. In the interview, Jobs said "Apple was in very serious trouble,â and what was really clear was that "if the game was a zero-sum game where for Apple to win, Microsoft had to lose, then Apple was going to lose.â âThere were too many people at Apple and in the Apple ecosystem playing [that] game,â he explained. âAnd it was clear that you didnât have to play that game because Apple wasnât going to beat Microsoft.â © Pinterest âTo me, it was pretty essential to break that paradigm,â Jobs said. âAnd it was also important that you know, Microsoft was the biggest software developer outside of Apple, developing for the Mac. So it was just crazy what was happening at that time. And Apple was very weak and so I called Bill up and we tried to patch things up.â For Microsoft, it was a new business opportunity as well as a way to get Apple back on its feet. While Gates did end up with 18.2 million Apple shares, but these were non-voting shares as Microsoft was their fiercest rival. Eventually, Gates sold all of Apple shares in 2003, however as of 2019, those shares would have been worth $40-50 billion. âThatâs worked out very well,â said Gates at the D5 tech conference. âIn fact, every couple years or so, thereâs been something new that weâve been able to do on the Mac and itâs been a great business for us.â Well, many thought that this tech mythic story wasnât true until the two CEOs met for an interview together. Thereâs no doubt it is a great story about the two rivals. It proves eliminating competition isnât the only way to win and in turn, working together helped both companies to become the richest organisations in the world. What makes this story extraordinary is the fact that Bill Gates at the time was a cut-throat businessman and had a reputation for not being apologetic. Today, Bill Gates is known for his generosity and philanthropy, but he was a very different person in 1997 who chose to save his rival rather than see it sink. View the full article
  9. Irrfan Khan opened up about how he relates the plot of the upcoming film 'Angrezi Medium'
  10. We can't wait to catch Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone back on the big screen again playing one of India's favourite cricketers Kapil Dev and his wife Romi Dev, respectively, in the upcoming movie 83, out in April 2020. The movie will, obviously, focus on Kapil Dev's career and of course the World Cup victory for team India in the 1983 Cricket World Cup. © Reliance Entertainment But we're more fascinated and excited about Deepika and Ranveer's jodi onscreen because it mirrors the fantastic love story of Kapil and Romi and we would love to narrate that to you, because it's so simple and real and a great inspiration for today's generation. Moreover, what today's generation truly needs is a constant reminder of how love should be interpreted and how it's not solely dependent on frivolity and random dating apps, at all times. Both Kapil and Romi are a standing testimony for everlasting love and maybe we can learn a thing or two from their beautiful relationship. © YouTube Romi has always played a huge part in Kapil's cricketing career and has been a famous entrepreneur who's managed to balance out her career with that of her husbands, and has taken care of their home and lives, all at once. Maybe that's why Kapil fell insanely in love with her, upon meeting her for the first time, through a common friend and that's how it all began. They stayed together for a year, romancing each other. Kapil was mesmerised by Romi's beauty and her strong personality and he popped the marriage question exactly a year after being with her. © BCCL The two were on a train when he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. Yes, today's wedding proposals are a bit more elaborate, where people are taken to fancy new destinations to propose, but to make a relationship last, it needs a lot more than a fancier dose of initial euphoria. After Romi said yes to Kapil on a moving train, they got married in 1980 and seemed like the happiest couple in love. In 1994, they had a daughter named Amiya, who was born almost 14 years after they got married. the couple has been together for almost 40 years now and it's reflective in the way they've been there for each other. Kapil considers Romi to be his lucky charm since he won the World Cup three years after she came into his life. Kapil had to face tough times in his career but Romi stood by him as fiercely and as strongly as a rock and helped him overcome everything. If anything, we can learn to be there for the ones we love even in their most daunting moments. We can learn to love people without leaving their side when they need us the most and we can also learn to love people a little less frivolously and a little more responsibly. © BCCL As Deepika and Ranveer tell us more about Kapil and Romi's Journey through their film 83, here's wishing both Kapil and Romi a lifetime of happiness and love!

  11. If you're a Game of Thrones fan and are still bitter about how things ended in the final season, there's a 'Stark' ray of hope for you guys. Yes, it's been a while since the series ended but taking personal offence on how one of the best Tele series ended is absolutely fair, we think. A petition was doing the rounds after the season ended to remake the series but this piece of information we're about to give you has nothing to do with the petition, per se. In an interview with a German newspaper called Welt, the author of the books George RR Martin said that the television ending isn't the full story and that he is yet to give a befitting ending to it. How's that to lift your weekend blues? Martin shed light on how he would like to finish his two books in the series he's been writing since the 1970s- The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring and eventually give the series the true ending it deserves. Well, we're actually glad Martin is finally finishing his long-lasting project as well. © HBO "People know an endingâbut not the ending. The makers of the TV show had overtaken me, which I didn't expect." Martin surprisingly revealed. Although to our disappointment he didn't reveal how the series would eventually end, but he did say season eight was ânot completely faithful,â and we absolutely agree! Season eight was a bit rushed with the character arcs that took years to develop only to miserably fail at delivering their real stories and eventual ends. In fact, in a post on his blog after the Game of Thrones finale aired, Martin wrote about his intentions to conclude character journeys that the show wasnât able to address. âI am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before Iâm done⦠and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, Iâll add them. And of course, the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not A Blog will know that Iâve been talking about that since season one. There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books⦠so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns⦠of a sortâ¦â © Twitter Working on the books and finishing them without the pressure of the television series airing at the same time might actually be a big relief for a writer and he can focus more on the real plot lines and the eventual twists each character goes through in the story. According to him, the show completely outpaced him and as he struggled to work through the oppressive nature and pressure of writing these books when the show was in the making. "Every day I sat down to write and even if I had a good day - and a good day for me is three or four pages - I'd feel terrible because I'd be thinking: 'My God, I have to finish the book. I've only written four pages when I should have written 40. But having the show finish is freeing because I'm at my own pace now. I have good days and I have bad days and the stress is far less, although it's still there." Martin said. © Twitter While you will definitely get to read the books, Martin has confirmed that the long-awaited Game of Thrones movies is not in the pipeline anymore and you can thank HBO for that. "At this point in time, it wouldnât be for me to decide, because HBO controls the film rights for Game of Thrones. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss actually wanted to end the saga after the seventh season with three big movies⦠The executives said, 'We produce TV shows, we are not in the cinema business" Martin added. © Twitter So, there you go. Finally, a closure to all the die-hard GoT fans who probably have unanswered questions, which in all probability, will be answered in Martin's upcoming books, finally! View the full article
  12. Varun Dhawan's film, Street Dancer is releasing this month. No surprise then he's bringing his A-game to promote the film. It all started a month back, from teaching Charlotte Flair never-seen-before steps from one of the songs of Street Dancer to pulling off stunts in an auto with fellow actor Shraddha Kapoor, and even recently, working up his disco-aesthetic to an almost unrecognisable look. © Viral Bhayani But if there's something that clearly stands out every time Varun puts his best foot forward, it's exactly that. (his rad kicks) Case in point, the time when he was with Prabhu Deva, he wore the Reebok by Pyer Moss Experiment 4 Fury Trail silhouette with a quirky outfit, also by Reebok by Pyer Moss' collection. © Viral Bhayani The sneaker is nothing like we've ever seen before. With the sneaker being split into three different layers, the silhouette represents the climb to success in the face of adversity, the first section utilizes rubberized leather and hard protective TPU to shield the rest of the shoe. The third and final section features deconstructed and soft materials for the inner tongue, the outer tongue, and the lining. Take a look: © Reebok © Reebok This is a rather fitting outfit for Street Dancer promotions considering it highlights the street dance aesthetic as well. Street Dancer is set to release on 24 January 2020, so we're hoping to find some of Varun's best looks in the film. View the full article

  14. Kajol reveals her most painful memory leaving fans heartbroken. Photo: MyNationThe bubbly, easygoing and beloved Kajol recently went candid and revealed some of her most personal memories. During a conversation with Humans of Bombay, Kajol spoke about her marriage, meeting her husband and one of her most painful life experiences. Kajol revealed that during the shoot for Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham in 2001, she was pregnant and although the film was such a success, she could not bring herself to celebrate the occasion because she had suffered a miscarriage only a while prior. She was quoted saying, “Over time, we began planning to have kids. I was pregnant during Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham in 2001, but had a miscarriage. I was in the hospital that day–the film had done so well, but it wasn’t a happy time. I had another miscarriage after that–it was tough,” she said in the interview. “But eventually it worked out–we had Nysa and Yug and our family’s complete." In regards to how she met her husband, Ajay Devgn, Kajol revealed, “We met 25 years ago, on the sets of Hulchul–I was ready for the shot & asked, ‘Where’s my hero?’ Someone pointed him out–he was broodily sitting in a corner. So 10 minutes before I met him, I bitched about him! We began talking on set & became friends.” She went onto say, “I was dating someone at the time & so was he–I’ve even complained about my then boyfriend to him! Soon, we both broke up with our significant others. Neither of us proposed–it was understood that we were to be together. It went from hand-holding to a lot more before we knew it.” Humans of Bombay shared her interview to their Instagram page. She went onto say, "We got married at home & gave the media the wrong venue–we wanted it to be our day. We had a Punjabi ceremony & a Marathi one! I remember, during the pheras Ajay was desperately trying to get the pandit to hurry up & even tried to bribe him!" "I wanted a long honeymoon–so we traveled to Sydney, Hawaii, Los Angeles… But 5 weeks into it, he fell sick & said, ‘Baby, book me on the next flight home!’ We were supposed to do Egypt, but we cut it short," she added. "We’ve been through so much–we’ve formed our own company, Ajay’s on his 100th film & every day we’re building something new. Life with him is content–we’re not too romantic or anything–we care for each other. If I’m thinking idiotic things, it’ll come out of my mouth without a filter & vice versa. Like right now I’m thinking that he owes me a trip to Egypt!” the star concluded.
  15. Akshay Kumar sometimes forces us to think that he's barely human. With a volley of movies releasing one after the other at breakneck speed, one can only imagine the energy levels this man must work with, to make it all look like a cakewalk. He has been really working his fashion game of late, for the promotion of Good Newwz. He was just spotted with Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani for the same, but stood out in his own right because of his wicked sartorial shenanigans. © Viral Bhayani Akshay wore a T-shirt that will give every Disney kid a tour of their childhood, with the Toy Story characters. He wore a super relaxed tee that has Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Rex the dinosaur, and Hamm the pig - all playfully chilling together. © Viral Bhayani As much as we love the Toy Story T-Shirt, what really captured our attention was his shoe-sock hybrids from Philipp Plein. The leather blend white sock sneakers featuring a ridged sole, a pull-on style and logo to the side, these sock sneakers are perfect for pulling off an aesthetic that's edgy, playful, and sophisticated at the same time. © Farfetch © Farfetch © Farfetch They are worth a whopping 935 Dollars (as per Farfetch, with import duties included). Talking about statement white sneakers to wear when you're stepping out alongside someone like Diljit, it really doesn't get better. All we can say is, we can't wait to watch them together on the big screen. View the full article
  16. They say âdonât chase love, itâll find you when the time is rightâ and many couples around the world will testify how this simple adage unexpectedly filled their lives with unexpected joy one fine day. Thatâs how it is supposed to be you see. It floors you, knocks the wind out of your lungs and sends your heart into a frenzy because of that one person who suddenly means the world to you. For one of Indiaâs most celebrated footballers and captain of the Indian football team Sunil Chhetri, love came visiting just like that - unannounced and completely unpredictable! Bas phir kya tha, when cupidâs arrow strikes even the mighty are bound to fall. Sunilâs first interaction with his future girlfriend and eventually his wife was truly unexpected. Talking to Humans of Bombay, Sunil recalls what the fateful day had been like when an 18-year-old Chhetri spoke to 15-year-old Sonam for the first time. âHer father was my coach, and he used to always specially mention this guy called âChhetriâ to her. I was 18, and she was only 15. She was really curious about me so she stole my number for her dadâs phone and texted me saying, âHi! Iâm Sonam and Iâm a big fan, I want to meet you!â.â Sounds simple enough, right? The good olâ days of romancing over sweet text messages. But soon these innocent text messages gave way to more. âI had absolutely no idea who she was. She was really sweet and kind on text so I decided to give in and met her â when we met I realised that she was just a kid! I told her, âYouâre a kid, go studyâ and walked off. But for some reason, we didnât stop casually texting each other.â But with the sweet scent of affection, came the dramatic twist that every hit love-story has to survive. For Sunil and Sonam, that climax was to come in the following months. âThat went on for two months, and then one day my coachâs phone stopped working â so he gave it to me to fix. While I was fixing it, the coachâs daughter called and her number looked familiar to me. Thatâs when I realised that it was Sonamâs number! I was so livid! I immediately called her up told her that if the coach would find out that I was chatting with his daughter, he would end my career! I vowed to cut all ties from her. She apologised for not telling the truth, but I wouldnât have any of it.â But we all know how love is, distance only makes the heart grow fonder and sure enough, Sunil had to surrender when love came calling. âA couple of months passed by, and I just couldnât get her out of my mind. I really enjoyed having her around. So I texted her and we started talking again. Soon, we started to meet. We had to be really careful and couldn't let anybody know. I used to travel a lot so weâd only meet twice or thrice a year. I remember I used to go to the cinema, buy two tickets â and leave one on her name at the counter. Iâd enter first and sheâd enter 10 minutes after me.â Their love and respect for one another only grew from there on, and there was no looking back. âYears went by and our bond only grew stronger. As I excelled in my career, she was there to always cheer me up, calm my fears and be my backbone. It was almost as if we grew up together and fell in love in the process.â Then came the day to take things to the next phase and hereâs what happened. âWhen we were both old enough, and wanted to get married. I knew it was time to talk to her dad. I was filled with jitters when I walked into her house. When we sat down, her dad started talking about everything under the sun. Until I finally mustered the courage and told him, âSir, I love your daughter and I believe she loves me tooâ. He just said, âYa, ya itâs okayâ and went to the bathroom. Finally when he came out, he gave his nod of approval! And in a few months, we got married.â Thatâs how Sunil Chhetri ended up scoring the greatest goal of his life by marrying his âbiggest fanâ. âWe dated for 13 years, and have been married for 2 years now. Sonam has literally been there through every monumental moment in my life. When I was a nobody and had no money, she was there. When I had my first win and even my first loss, she was there. When I made captain, she was there. I just canât imagine my past without her, and definitely not my future. âTill date she calls herself my âbiggest fanâ, but I hope she knows that Iâm always and so much more, in awe of her.â Whatta wow, eh?

  19. Ever wondered why they call it a fitness 'journey'? The obvious answer to it may be because we can't get that dream body overnight. But in all honesty, we all know there is more to it than meets the eye. And this journey, is in many ways, testing and teasing like all the others, and it is as much to do with a healthy 'body image' as it is to do with a healthy body. © Getty Images However, it would be a lie to call this journey regular, because it is certainly not and will never be. The journey to fitness is marked by many challenges, which are physical as well as psychological. The very decision to kickstart a fitness journey deserves many accolades in itself, and then comes in the constant battle we fight with ourselves over shedding those extra kilos and squeezing in another hour of sleep instead. From the dietary adjustments, to other long term compromises we are expected to make and a myriad of other miscellaneous things we are expected to abide by, makes this journey a real struggle. © Getty Images But then there exist some people who show us the real face of a fitness journey at their own expense, and it seems so true, every Indian guy would come to relate to it. Using Arjun Kapoor and weight loss in the same sentence may provoke a lot of you to break into laughter. But, can we spare a moment to consider that every “weight loss journey” is different from the last one you came across? That every individual who is on this journey is making a lot of effort to stop making excuses and charge towards a healthier body. © Twitter Well, if you are looking for an example to guide you on your own journey to a fitter you, then that's the man you should look out for. His isn't the most glitzy fat-to-fab story, it definitely doesn't make for a perfect example of a fitness journey either, and that is exactly what that makes Arjun's journey more real, more believable and therefore more inspiring. We witnessed Arjun Kapoor's drastic body transformation for his debut movie 'Ishaqzaade' back in 2012. When, as an aspiring actor, Arjun weighed 140 kgs, the dream of being a Bollywood actor seemed too far-fetched for him. But it was reportedly during his time as an assistant director for Nikkhil Advani's 2007 film 'Salaam-E-Ishq', that Salman Khan inspired him to lose weight, after which Salman allegedly also supervised Arjun's training sessions. Over the next three years, Arjun lost close to 50 kg before his big launch. © Instagram But hours ago, Arjun revealed his fitness journey over the years, and how his struggles with obesity have been a constant in his life since he was a child. Owing to many mental and personal reasons that always came in his way one way or another, Arjun has constantly battled with the weighing scale over the years. But nothing could make him give it all up, not when he knew what he is capable of. Read about his journey here. View this post on Instagram It's been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles I have had and continue to have mine. But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again... efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year... I started training with @shivohamofficial this January and slow and steady we have managed to At least lay a foundation during our prep for Panipat. I vowed never to give up in the 3 years it took me to lose 50kgs when I was 20 years old & I sure as hell won't be giving up and letting go now... keeping the belief is key, u gotta keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits... we all gotta keep the faith and keep at it cause what we do today will echo in time and reflect within us eventually... A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jun 17, 2019 at 11:18pm PDT Arjun's earnest and honest ways of always being candid about his weight issues and how he struggles and deals with it, is something most of us will relate to. Getting those 6-pack-abs and chiselled face comes at a cost, but how many people have been completely honest about their backstories, instead of posting daily gym selfies with sappy 'motivational' one-liners? © Instagram But, this guy here, brings forth the real story, and it will do us good to acknowledge it that while we are trying to get fit, it's okay to chase after it at the cost of your mental peace and happiness in general. The idea is to have a healthy body, that's the goal we are after.
  20. If you are not from a filmy background or are an outsider in the movie industry, things won't come that easily to you and you will have to chase your dreams till you finally achieve it. And well, Chetan Rao from Delhi is one such person who is following his passion and his story is surely inspiring in many ways. Rao is an actor who did a small role in Salman Khan's Bharat and he was also seen in the TV series 'Savdhaan India' and was also part of Netflix's 'Delhi Crime'. You might be thinking what's really the struggle here if he is getting to be on the big screen. So, basically, in his free time and when he isn't acting, he works as a delivery boy with Swiggy in Delhi. It all came into the limelight when actor Rajesh Tailang tweeted about Rao, as they both have worked with each other in 'Delhi Crime'. He had tweeted, “Today the #swiggy delivery guy, who delivered food at my place is an actor and he did a cameo with me in #delhicrime. Whenever (he) is not getting an acting job, he does this. RESPECT.” Here's the tweet: Today the #swiggy delivery guy, who delivered food at my place is an actor and he did a cameo with me in #delhicrime . Whenever is not getting acting job, he does this. RESPECT ð — Rajesh Tailang (@rajeshtailang) May 29, 2019 Well, he does get roles but they are not big enough to get him the recognition he needs or even serve his hunger enough to perform. Rao spoke to Hindustan Times and spoke in detail about his struggles and his passion. He said, “I generally get a role of about 2-3 minutes but that doesn't matter to me. Even a minute role is enough to fuel my passion for acting.” Rao confessed that he always wanted to be an actor and he loves to watch movies. He wanted to join a film institute but he couldn't afford to do the same so learnt acting by watching shows and movies on TV. © Twitter He doesn't earn much through these side roles and to make up for his expenses, he works as a food delivery man. When asked if people recognize him, he said, “Sometimes, log pehchan lete hain, kabhi nahi pehchantey. Acha lagta hai jab koi kehta ki aapko kahin dekha hai, aur acha lagta hai jab kehte hain ki aapko TV ya film mei dekha hai... (Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. It feels good when they say they've seen my work).” He ended the conversation with a positive note, “I know that I am a delivery boy today, lekin ek din mehant se mai superstar jaroor banunga (One day I will become a superstar because of my sheer hard work.)” Well, his story is surely inspiring and gut-wrenching at the same time.
  21. There's a reason why a dog is a man or a woman's best friend. They're the actual healers we need in our lives and if times are not so good for us, they know how to make us feel better for sure. Don't believe me? Well, Hank the dog certainly did something extraordinary for his owner and the Twitter user recently shared his story with the internet , and it truly melted our hearts. This story surely teaches us to be patient with our pets, as they might do things to annoy us but will also do heroic things to compensate for their bad behaviour. So, we really shouldn't be too quick to punish them. © Twitter So, if you have a dog and he or she is up to some mischief, always resign to the fact that they will act intelligently when they really need to, if they have to save your life. Dogs are quite clairvoyant like that. Ever noticed, if you're sad or low, they usually come sit next to you, and you feel better? That's because they figure you're sad and they come to cheer you up, kinda like saving your life, isn't it? Well, Hank actually did save his owners' life, even after getting a scolding. So, if you have a dog, give them all the love they deserve and yes, make sure you have some fire-fighting apparatus at home, always. People online really loved the story and vouched for more show-chewing days for Hank!
  22. Before this year's semi-finals, all 4 of the semi-finalists at Roland Garros had a combined total of 3 wins at the event. None of them had ever featured in the semi-final of a Grand Slam tournament before. Fan-favourite and veteran Serena Williams as well as world no.1 Naomi Osaka bowed out in the third round whereas defending champion Simona Halep was defeated by 17-year-old American Amanda Anisimova in the quarter final. Women's tennis keeps throwing curveball after curveball for the bookmakers, making some of the edgiest and most intriguing events in sports currently. © Reuters The semi-finals this year made for the most entertaining matchups, as Brit ace Johanna Konta came up short against Czech 19-year-old Marketa Vondrousova and Anisimova was defeated by 23-year-old Ashleigh Barty who was the ultimate champion. Barty, the current world no.8 actually returned to the WTA tour three years ago ranked 623 in the world, after an absence in order to play cricket in the women's Big Bash League in her native Australia. After her triumph in Paris yesterday, she will be ranked no.2 in the world as of 6th June. Hers is a story of real intrigue. This could be the biggest drawback of slipping women's tennis under the radar. The story of Ash Barty is inspirational to all those that seek a career change and the fact that it fails to reach a large audience is simply disappointing. © Twitter/HeatBBL None of the 4 semi-finalists were given much of a chance to go very far in the tournament by many; and they did so clinically and professionally, playing world-class tennis along the way. In fact, 14 of the women currently active on the WTA tour have been in the top 2 of the rankings. Only 4 of the active players on the ATP tour have featured in the top 2- Tennis' fabled 'Big Four' consisting of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. As inspirational as the 'Big Four' have been for men's tennis this generation, they have made the sport somewhat predictable, leading to a lack of stories coming out of men's tennis except those of their incredible caliber. To put things into perspective, Naomi Osaka became the first woman in four years to win back-to-back Slams after her wins in New York and Melbourne. She is also one of the few players ranked among the top 10 to have multiple Grand Slam titles. 'The Big Four' on the other hand, have amassed 54 of the 61 Grand Slam titles that have been contested since 2004. © Reuters Yet, the efforts of the players on the WTA Tour seem to have lacked any appreciation from the rest of the tennis world. Both semi-finals of the women's draw took place on the outside courts in Paris as the men's semi-finals took place in Court Philippe Chatrier. For the second time within a year, the women's finalists were asked to wait to contest the final, as there was an overflow from the men's semi-final on Center Court. This makes one ponder whether the same measure would be taken if the tables were turned. In no other sport has the movement for equality been more prevalent than in tennis. As viewership and ticketing dictate most major decisions in the sport one has to feel sorry that the quality of women's tennis is going under the radar not just due to institutional problems, but due to negligence from viewers as well. The men's draw may be the main source of inspiration for tennis fans, but the more competitive, unpredictable and entertaining tennis is coming from the women's draw, which is unfortunately going rather unnoticed. A story like Barty's is unconventional and rare, and it must be highlighted rather than slipped under the radar like most stories coming out of women's tennis these days..
