  1. 2434.52 metres, that is how much Virat Kohli ran between the wickets during the three-match ODI series against the visiting Australian team. The first match in Mumbai turned out to be an unlikely outing for the Indian skipper, who gave away his wicket to Adam Zampa in a caught and bowled, early in his innings. While smashing a solitary six, the batsman could only manage to put up 16 runs in Indiaâs below average total of 255. Even then, 10 of his runs came from singles. Kohli falls to Zampa once again...for the 4th time in the ODIs. No spinner has dismissed Kohli more than 4 times in the ODIs. The best ball ever bowled to Kohli in the ODIs is also from a leggie. When Adil Rashid cleaned up Kohli. #INDvAUS â slowyorker (@slowyorker1) January 14, 2020 The other two matches were a completely different story altogether. In the second ODI in Rajkot, 78 runs came off Kohliâs bat in 76 deliveries as he helped opener Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul build a mammoth total of 340 after being asked to bat first by Aaron Finch. Out of Kohliâs 78-run stint, he scored 54 of them by taking singles and changing strikes with his partner. Yesterday Shikhar Dhawan Was Disappointed He Missed His 100. But Virat Kohli Was Even More Disappointed.! That's Virat Kohli For You Perfect Team Man.!#ViratKohli #KingKohli #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/2U8icUILA3 â Tamil Viratians ð¥ (@Tamil_Viratians) January 18, 2020 And in the third ODI in Bengaluru, 57 runs of his 89-run innings came the same way as well. Even though the top-order batsman is known for a variety of qualities such as his textbook cover drive and the well-documented capacity to chase big total, Kohliâs ability to take singles often goes unnoticed. The biggest, most recent example comes from Indiaâs win over the Aussies at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium on Sunday when the Men in Blue were to chase down 286 runs in 50 overs. Rohit Sharma was having his typical high-scoring game amidst which Kohli stepped onto the pitch after KL Rahul got trapped with an Ashton Agar LBW. Understanding that his deputy-in-chief was in the zone, Kohli tried to give Sharma more and more opportunities to reduce the gap as much as he could. The duo maintained a run-rate closer to what was required throughout the middle overs and prevented any massive gaps in scoring which would have returned later to haunt them. Best thing about kohli is no ego. He is happy to be silent when Rohit is playing. He is just taking singles and hitting odd boundaries. Making this partnership as big as it can. #INDvsAUS â Nishant Singh Parihar (@nsp2607) January 19, 2020 Once the opener gave up his wicket on a Zampa leggie after a masterful 119-run knock, the skip decided to take it upon himself to carry his team all the way to victory. With Shreyas Iyer on the other end, Kohli pushed for quick singles amidst a boundary every now and then. The strategy was simple. Choose the bowlers youâd like to score against and those you would just want to end their spells. For Kohli, it was Zampa, who had dismissed him five times in the last eight innings. Even then, Kohli managed to sneak four or five runs during his overs as well. It was because of Kohliâs activity between the wickets that the target felt more like cakewalk for Team India. Even though he got bowled out at the hands of Josh Hazlewood after being found to be a bit greedy for his century, it didnât affect the final result of the match. India now needed fewer runs than balls left to win, the damage was already done. Champions ð®ð³#INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/168H5qeSSa â BCCI (@BCCI) January 19, 2020 A couple of boundaries by Manish Pandey and a surprisingly good innings by Iyer and India finally won the match and the series to carry along the glory of beating one of the better Australian sides in the recent past. Kohliâs singles made it happen. They not only kept his side closer to the required run rate but also created a sense of frustration amongst the Australian fielders who couldnât stop these pesky singles from taking place. ð®ð³ð®ð³#TeamIndia ð pic.twitter.com/IQmm5Vrf8I â BCCI (@BCCI) January 19, 2020 These are the kind of things that Virat Kohli brings to the team. Things like the willingness to share the crease with his partner, watching him score big runs while standing on the other side of the pitch, and motivating younger cricketers amidst immense pressure. These qualities not only make him a great batter but also a phenomenal captain. View the full article
  2. ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised to take stern action against hoarders and profiteers responsible for the wheat flour crisis in the country, said Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Sunday. “Prime minister will defeat profiteers and those who are hoarding flour,” she said, adding that the premier had made a promise to take stern action against those responsible for the wheat crisis and he will ensure that that promise is fulfilled. Awan said Prime Minister Imran had allocated Rs6 billion for utility stores via a special package due to which flour, pulses, and rice will be available for the common man at low rates. The statement from the prime minister’s aide comes at a time when the flour crisis has gripped the nation, making life difficult for masses around the country. Read more: Food security ministry rejects reports of wheat shortage in Pakistan Flour prices have skyrocketed across the country in recent days, selling for as high as Rs62 per kilogram at several retail stores. The PPP and the PML-N have blamed the government for the crisis. The price of the flour has increased by five rupees in just the last week due to a shortage of wheat supply. “Fine flour is available for Rs62/kg while the price of mill flour increased by five to six rupees and is being sold between Rs 62/kg to Rs70/kg,” the president of the flour retailers association had told Geo News. In Karachi, a sack of flour was being sold for Rs500 a couple of days ago. In some parts of the city, a bag of 10kg flour which cost Rs450 before the crisis was being sold for Rs700 after an increase of Rs250. In Lahore, the Punjab Flour Mill Association increased the price of flour by Rs6 per kg, after which it was being sold at Rs70 per kg across the province. Read more: PM Imran orders 'grand operation' to curb flour crisis Prime Minister Imran Khan took notice of the recent surge in wheat prices, instructing all four provincial chief secretaries to initiate a "grand operation" against those involved in hoarding flour and selling it at exorbitant rates on Saturday. The Prime Minister's Office ordered the provincial governments, chief commissioners and deputy commissioners (DC) to take stern action against the culprits.
  3. Kangana Ranaut was 'demanded' by armed thugs to take selfies with themKangana Ranaut, one of the most outspoken actors in Bollywood, is afraid of no one. Not even armed thugs. Proving just that, the 33-year-old Queen actor during her appearance at The Kapil Sharma Show recalled an incident that left fans taken aback and startled. The actor revealed that during the filming process of Revolver Rani, the crew had taken to the unsafe locations of Chambal where they had an encounter with armed thugs and robbers who had forced her to take a selfie with them. “We shot the film in the actual locations of Chambal. The director mentioned it’s a risky area and not an ideal place for shooting a film, but we shot there irrespective to make it realistic,” she said. “I asked him why he had brought us to shoot in the place. He had just one thing to say that I am brave enough to face them,” she added. She further revealed: “We met a group of dacoits when we were returning from that area. They demanded a selfie with me. Kabir, who is a good friend, protected me.”
  4. Our Bollywood celebrities do love their bikes. From some really mean machines that we have seen John Abraham strut around on, to some really speedy masterpieces that Shahid is a fan of, Bollywood seems to be fascinated with bikes, and biking outfits. © Instagram/shahidkapoor The latest B-Towner to be bitten by the speed bug is Rajkummar Rao. He was recently spotted riding a Harley that in its truest sense is a machine that a lot of biking fans have coveted over the years. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar is seen riding his latest toy, the 2018 Harley Davidson Fat Bob. The bike, which retails for just shy of at least Rs 15 lakhs, depending on how you deck it out is an iconic piece from the American motorcycle company. © Viral Bhayani With its iconic rectangular headlights and an all-black colour theme, the bike that Rajkummar has does look cool and dapper. However, if you ask us, it's his biker outfit that really steals the show for us. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar is wearing a rather laidback co-orded set of a black t-shirt, with a pair of black denims and black sneakers. The outfit, paired with a red shirt actually works well for him, considering his rather lean and fit physique. © Viral Bhayani The red shirt, which at first seems rather simplistic and plain, is actually a dapper one. If you look closely, you may be able to see the Viking emblem on the left side of his shirt. © Viral Bhayani Also zany are the pair of Gucci sneakers that Rajkummar is wearing. The nappa leather sneakers are dope, and look particularly swell with that shoelace tag that it carries. Although not conventionally a pair of biking boots, these sneakers do actually make a lot of sense, both ergonomically as well as sartorially, considering how atrocious Mumbai's stop and go traffic can get sometimes. © Gucci We're not sure though whether we would risk a pair of wearing a pristine pair of Guccis while riding a bike as heavy as the Fat Bob. But then, if you look this swell, can you really complain? We certainly can't. © Viral Bhayani All in all, a rather dapper way to go on a ride, Rajkummar. Badass indeed. View the full article
  5. Rapper Dave and Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi lead the nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards // PHOTO: ReutersRapper Dave and Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi lead the nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards with four nods each, in a new, slimmed-down list of prizes at Britain’s top pop music honors. Both will contest the same categories at next month’s ceremony: male solo artist, best new artist, song of the year and Mastercard album of the year. Dave is in the running for his single Location and the album Psychodrama, for which he won the Mercury Prize last year. Capaldi was nominated for his chart-topping track Someone You Loved and his album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent. Organizers have previously said this year’s show, the 40th in a series that began in 1977, will feature fewer categories, allowing for more music to be performed on the night. They also said they would allow performing acts to “fully take the reins by encouraging them to create and curate performances unique to them”. Grime star Stormzy is nominated for best male solo artist as well as for his song Vossi Bop and album Heavy Is the Head. The nominees for male solo artist include Harry Styles, who first found fame in the boyband One Direction, and singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka. Both are also nominated for their albums Fine Line and Kiwanuka respectively. Mabel is nominated for her song Don’t Call Me Up, and also in the best female solo artist and best new artist categories. The other nominees for best female solo artist include singers Freya Ridings, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX and Mahalia. Coldplay, Foals, Bastille, D-Block Europe and Bring Me The Horizon will compete for group of the year. The song of the year contenders also include Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s I Don’t Care, Calvin Harris and Rag’n’Bone Man’s Giant, Nothing Breaks Like a Heart by Mark Ronson and featuring Miley Cyrus, AJ Tracey’s Ladbroke Grove, Tom Walker’s Just You and I and Dancing With A Stranger by Sam Smith and Normani. Competing to be best international male solo artist are Bruce Springsteen, Burna Boy, Post Malone, Dermot Kennedy and Tyler, the Creator. Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Lana Del Rey and Lizzo are in the running for best international female solo artist. Singer Celeste has already been announced as the winner of the BRIT Rising Star award. The award ceremony takes place in London on February 18.
  6. Robert Pattinson has recently disclosed why he decided to essay the role of Batman in DC's upcoming movie. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Twilight actor explained the reason behind his choice, saying Batman always attracted him. There is a prestige attached to Batman's role, which he finds attractive, the actor said. He said there has been an aura of quality in every live-action Batman project throughout the character's history, including the original Batman TV series. The 33-year-old actor, famous for his lead role in Twilight, left his fans surprised with the announcement that he will now be starring in a huge action-thriller film. However, the Twilight actor is still fretting about his fan's response to his newly adopted avatar.
  7. I once read somewhere, "I've learned so much from my mistakes...I'm thinking of making a few more." I think people working at Madame Tussauds either came up with the quote or religious follow it. How else can we justify what they did to Nicki Minaj and her wax statue? This is Nicki Minaj from her hit song Anaconda. © Young Money Entertainment This is how Madame Tussauds thought Nicki Minaj looks like in the 2014 music video. Reportedly, it took them 20 craftspeople and six months to complete the wax figure that looks nothing like her. © Twitter Honestly, if Nicki Minaj fans closed their eyes and draw her based on their imagination, it will still be closer to Nicki than what people at Madame Tussauds turned her into. The statue was originally located in Madame Tussauds museum in Las Vegas and was there for four years before it was recently unveiled in Berlin, Germany. This wax statue looks more like a college assignment that was finished in a span of few hours, despite a month-long deadline and Minaj's fans are clearly not impressed. And we can't even blame them. Did they use @faceapp_ai to make @NICKIMINAJ wax figure? Sis don't look like that.. pic.twitter.com/AOOng7RKC4 — Broke Mom (@BrokeMomLife) January 8, 2020 y'all look at this wax figure ð@NICKIMINAJ i'm so sorry pic.twitter.com/s2Tk3M1rsF — ari (@lordarquaad) January 8, 2020 Listen, I'm not even die hard Nicki Minaj fan but she can RAP & ppl don't give her talent the credit it deserves. That wax figure Madame Tussaud's put out…that's not Onika Maraj. I'm so sorry. Does google not exist? They looked at that mess & said “yh, we got it”. No, you don't. pic.twitter.com/VtQmLYgy0D — Zu (@ghetto004) January 7, 2020 somebody said- the nicki minaj wax figure...look like a Mexican stripper from Houston pic.twitter.com/osTLnxdrNl — Got Chips and Eating Ruffles.

I dont like this family... ð¡ð ð ð pic.twitter.com/VHHJ7SW944 — Ms Spiritual Bunny (@sn_snowbunny1) January 8, 2020 Madame Tussaud's Germany is trying to convince the world this is Nicki Minaj Lol pic.twitter.com/6Yfmutmi4Y — Chocolate Jay (@JayWatkins83) January 7, 2020 So I'm no expert, and I had to google pictures to make sure I was right, but has Madame Tussauds actually SEEN Nicki Minaj before? — Danny Hearn (@Gnoweigh) January 8, 2020 But hey, at least they got her outfit and pose right! As the desi kids say, there should be some marks for the steps even if the answer is wrong. This is not the first time that people at Madame Tussauds went horribly wrong with a celebrity's wax figure. Earlier, celebrities like Beyonce, Nicole Kidman, Selena Gomez, Katrina Kaif, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Hemsworth and Justin Bieber were victims of wax figure fails.

  8. In yet another case of animal brutality in the capital, a street dog was tied up and beaten to death by some people from a popular locality. This isn't an isolated incident of street dog torture and murder and while we condemn any form of brutality, why do we fall short of doing the same for an animal? Especially for street dogs in India. © Instagram While Australia is battling with saving their own animal species in wildfires, India is a notch ahead, killing animals without much remorse. A street dog (female), whose legs were tied together, was found badly injured, with a cracked skull, after she was beaten up by the locals of Masigarh, Sukhdev Vihar - a posh locality in South Delhi. Although no one has been identified behind the crime committed, it is believed a group of people were behind this and the only reason they beat her to death was because she was biting a few residents there. The dog, left to die, was then spotted by an animal lover, who called others from the fraternity for help. While she was taken to Friendicoes, the capital's leading dog shelter, another volunteer stayed back to round up some formalities with the police. While at Friendicoes, the dog was diagnosed with a broken skull and multiple fractures on her snout. Unfortunately, she didn't survive and passed away a few days ago. This incident alone is very unfortunate and we definitely believe the perpetrators need to be punished. But what is the punishment for animal abuse, torture and murder? Because we don't have stricter laws for animal abuse, most of us are unaware of a fulfilling and rightful punishment for the accused. © Instagram Currently a complaint under Section 11(1) of the PCA and Sections 428 and 429 of IPC against unknown accused persons who beat the dog, has been filed. The section states that anyone who tortures an animal in any way or kills them shall be liable to imprisonment and fined as well. "We took the dog to tis hazari hospital where the doctor Rekha Kumari, informed us that she had no jurisdiction and was the duty doctor for that day. After speaking with several authorities and waiting for 3 hours with the body of the dog, the doctor informed the IO that there were no instruments to do the post mortem and it's the IOs responsibility to get the instruments to cut the dog's body" said Gauri Puri, a lawyer by profession and an animal rights activist, in an interview with MensXP As it is, Delhi Police has been facing a lot of wrath from the capital for their inactions towards particular incidents that occurred around the city, and in this case too, they failed to mitigate the dire situation. View this post on Instagram A dog was tied and beaten nearly to death in the morning at Masihgarh, Sukhdev Vihar. The dogs leg was tied and repeated beaten by an iron rod till her skull cracked. She was spotted by an animal lover who immediately called me and Gauri. I took her to Friendicoes whereas Gauri stayed back to do the necessary formalities with the cops. The poor dog has a broken skull, multiple fractures on her snout and her prognosis is poor. We have shifted her to Earthlings for personalized care. All the necessary steps for identifying the culprit and filing a FIR are being taken.

While there is hope with the FIR, in the absence of any efforts to investigate the culprits or inquire who the accused were, the police has been taking statements of people allegedly bitten by the dog. This cruel act was admittedly done by the local residents of Masigarh, all of whom are known to be goons. Each one claims to have knowledge of how the incident happened , but with the lack of action of police, no name has been forthcoming" - Gauri added. There are a lot of incidents pertaining to animal torture that go by without the perpetrators paying for their heinous crimes. Remember Lucky? the Worli based street dog, who was beaten to death when he came to a gated colony to take refuge from rain? He died, and with him died the struggle to nab the culprits and put them behind bars. #SaveLucky We spoke with #IramRizvi who along with her friends is trying to #SaveLucky the #WorliDog Let's pray to #SaveLucky Let's have your suggestions also. .@MumbaiDog .@MumbaiMirror .@MirrorNow .@DeShobhaa .@Sonam_Kapoor .@AnushkaSharma .@TheJohnAbraham @fayedsouza pic.twitter.com/WZXjDxJwQV — jeeturaaj rj (@MirchiJeeturaaj) July 30, 2019 So, at any given point in time, if you see animal torture in any form around you, this is what you can do! (1) If you see someone hurt/torture/abuse an animal, the first thing you should do is confront them an ask them to stop. If you think that's not a safe option, try and gather a crowd and humiliate them for doing what they are. (2) Write to an active animal welfare group on social media, with adequate evidence of the abuse in the form of pictures and videos. Do this to garner as much support as you can. (3) Call the police and make sure the complaint is under Section 11 of the Prevention to cruelty to animals and section 428 and 429 of the Indian Penal code. Read up on these sections and do your research beforehand. Make sure your complaint is registered under all three sections. Many times complaint is only under Section 11 of the PCA, where the punishment is nothing. © Instagram (4) Legally file a complaint and take a DD No. Make sure to take a copy of it. It's the complainant's right (5) Follow up with the Investigating Officer. Give a letter for reservations of CCTVs, as that can at as a vital proof of the incident. (6) Give the animal first aid ASAP. MLC (medico legal complaint) of the dog can be done afterward also (7) If the animal dies, and there is a complaint, it's the IOs responsibility to preserve the body, get the PM and dispose the body. While you follow these legalities, make sure to reach out to prominent people who can help you with such cases, legally an otherwise. While the investigations are still ongoing for this dog who succumbed to her injuries, we only hope we can prevent animal torture of this degree in the future and make a safe haven for all living creatures, around us.

  9. New Pakistan cricket head coach Misbah-ul-Haq (pictured here) has stressed that fitness will be paramount as he tries to lift the national team's standards.—File photoKARACHI: Pakistan's cricket board on Friday warned the national players to meet fitness standards or lose up to 15 percent of their salary, as officials seek to address the team's fall in the international rankings. Pakistan failed to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in England last year, and won only one of their six Test matches. They also fared badly in one-day internationals, winning just nine of their 25 and just one of their ten Twenty20 internationals, leaving the team as low as seventh in Tests and sixth in ODIs. They did manage to cling to their world number one rankings in Twenty20 internationals – but by just one point. New head coach Misbah-ul-Haq had stressed fitness will be paramount as he tries to lift standards. "All the available centrally contracted players will attend the two-day testing on January 6 and 7 in Lahore and any player failing to meet the minimum fitness requirements will be fined 15 percent of his monthly retainer," said a Pakistan Cricket Board release Friday. The cut will be maintained until the player gets fit again, it said. Any player failing consecutive tests "will risk the chances of retaining his central contract category and may face demotion," warned the PCB. The fitness tests will cover fat analysis, strength, endurance, speed endurance and cross-fit, and will carry equal weightage. Currently 19 top players are under contract in A, B and C categories and get monthly salaries ranging from 1.1 million to 0.5 million rupees based on their contract. Pakistan are scheduled to play three Twenty20 internationals and two Tests at home against Bangladesh starting later this month, but pending clearance from Bangladesh Board.
  10. Renowned Indian poet Javed Akhtar on Thursday voiced his support for his Pakistani counterpart Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s poem Hum Dekhainge, slamming nationalists for claiming it was "anti-Hindu". Akhtar said: "Saying that this poem is anti-Hindu, is just so absurd that I cannot speak on it in a serious manner. When you talk against fundamentalism, shortsightedness, and hatred, people call you anti-national," he said. Such claims were made by dull and dumb people, he said, adding that the poem was written by "Faiz against Pakistani dictator Zia-ul-Haq's government … which was a communal, regressive, and a fundamentalist regime,” he noted. Further explaining Goonjayga An-Al-Haq Ka Naara, which people claim was anti-Hindu, he said it was the word of Sufi poets who were against fundamentalist and regressive regimes. The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur set up a committee to look into whether the poem, Hum Dekhenge, was offensive to Hindu sentiments. The move came after a faculty member complaint that the students who took out a peaceful march in the campus on December 17 against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, and in solidarity with Jamia Millia Islamia students who sung it as a mark of protest. Since the CAA's enactment on December 12, 2019, protests have erupted in various parts of the India, including New Delhi. It grants citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists, and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh and came to India on or before December 31, 2014.
  11. Ah, the National Cricket Academy (NCA), the place which was supposed to be a gold mine of world-class cricketers who'd help India dominate international cricket for decades to come. Located in Bengaluru's Chinnaswamy Stadium, the NCA was the brainchild of the former president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Raj Singh Dungarpur and was established in the year 2000. The BCCI signed massive contracts with other cricketing boards such as Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Cricket Board to bring some of the best coaches and staff members onboard with the hopes of realising Dungarpur's dreams. But ever since its inception, the NCA has been looked at as nothing more than a rehabilitation centre for national players. With time, the Academy's image plummeted even further as cases of corruption began to surface. The latest hit that the institution's reputation took was when these so called “best doctors” in the business failed to diagnose Indian bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar's sports hernia and cleared him to play. Bhuvneshwar Kumar's injury puts a question mark over specialists team at NCA Bhuvneshwar Kumar was recently diagnosed with a hernia in Mumbai after he complained of discomfort post the two T20Is against West Indies.

Injured cricketers like Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah have said "no" to seek medical attention at the NCA and preferred spending lakhs more to get treatment in London. Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya had refused to go to NCA: Sources https://t.co/rWs0wzsmCp — TOI Sports News (@TOISportsNews) December 14, 2019 Even though the Indian cricket board decided to improve the academy's name by appointing former Indian batting legend Rahul Dravid as its Head but even 'The Wall' couldn't bring about any radical changes. Well, that was until Sourav Ganguly became the new BCCI President. After Ganguly traveled to Bengaluru to have a discussion with Dravid in October, the power-duo has finally decided to team up once again and revive the NCA and make it the treasure chest it was always supposed to be. Sourav Ganguly - BCCI President Rahul Dravid - Head of the Cricket at NCA, Bengaluru Indian Cricket is in Safe hands now. pic.twitter.com/xUpoXuRVkF — Satyam Singh (@MyFreakyTweets) October 15, 2019 "The BCCI will consult a London-based clinic, Fortius, for setting up its medical panel," a top BCCI official told PTI. They have also decided to hire a social media expert to bring forward constant update on the on-goings inside the facility. Data analyst, another role that has become more and more important with the evolution of the sport, will also be appointed to keep a check on the cricketers' progress. They have also decided to hire a fast bowling coach who will be entrusted with the inception of a fast bowling program. A nutrition expert will also be brought onboard for forming personalised diet plans for the athletes under training. Ganguly and Dravid have expressed their hopes of revamping the NCA within the next 18 months. While things like introducing a medical panel and the inclusion of technology and opening a new Instagram account for the NCA don't sound like revolutionising ideas right now, they will continue to work in favour of the improvement of its reputation and bring about greater transparency in what goes on behind the closed walls of Chinnaswamy Stadium.

  12. Remember watching Bollywood horror movies as a kid? Wasn't it more or less a movie that was filmed around a poorani haveli, had a scary Ramu kaka and creaking doors? These films were more funny than scary. But not all of them were funny, as some of the films that we watched as kids can still give us nightmares. So, here is a list of Bollywood horror films that you cannot watch alone but loved watching them as a kid. 1. Makdee This film was directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and was also screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003. Shabana Azmi's scary costume actually made us believe in the presence of a character she was playing. The pit that was shown in her old mansion scared us kids to another level. The film was also promoted as The Web of The Witch in English. 2. Raaz This film has had its on-going sequels but the first one was the best of all. The film revolves around a story of a couple that is being haunted by a spirit of a woman. Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea who played the lead couple lived in an isolated huge house that had a forest nearby. This film till date can be watched again and again and will still give you goosebumps for sure. 3. Krishna Cottage If you don't remember this film, then we are judging you! A group of college kids is forced to stay at a deserted house called the Krishna Cottage at night and after that, unfortunate events start to happen. The cottage is haunted by a spirit which is now after Sohail Khan as the spirit was in love with him in her previous life. It sounds dramatic but it was really scary, try watching it tonight! 4. Vaastu Shastra It is a story of a family that moves into their new house with their son Rohan. Rohan befriends a kid who is actually a ghost and lives on a haunted tree that is located outside the house. Rohan keeps on talking to the kid and he is the only one who can see him. Sushmita sen plays the role of his mother in the film and thinks that he has an imaginary friend. Later, it turns out that the house is haunted by the dead. 5. Darna Mana Hai A group of six friends get stuck on a highway, and one by one tell each other scary stories. Each story continues to get scarier than the previous one and people start to go missing. © Ram Gopal Verma Productions Which one of these are you watching tonight? Let us know in the comments below.

  13. Even though Arjun Kapoor is known for his understated style, the time when he experiments, he instantly turns heads. He has been spotted wearing super relaxed outfits. Be it at the airport or casual outings, he looks equal parts of comfortable and stylish with his ensembles. © Viral Bhayani If you didn't know this, Arjun is also a massive sneakerhead who has a sartorial taste for quirky pair of sneakers. From wearing sneakers with a security tag to making a statement in super worn-out sneakers, he knows how to truss up tastefully. Recently, he was spotted at Mumbai airport and we have to say he looked dandy AF. While his outfit had a relaxed vibe, his shoes were so eye-catching that we couldn't stop gazing at them. © Viral Bhayani Speaking of his garb, Arjun has shown us some simple ways to deck up at the airport. His t-shirt with neon hands looks quite outlandish. The faded dark blue jeans coupled with a blue hoodie makes a perfect ensemble to jet-off in style. It's noteworthy and we are totally inspired. © Sneakernews Coming to his sneakers, Arjun is seen wearing Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low. These sneakers shook up the whole sneaker culture with its edgy construction. It's Nike's newest innovation that's designed with translucent uppers. The pair has an explicit "AIR" message along with exposed stitching. The back of these sneakers has the word ''logo" on it. Furthermore, the hue of this pair is a bit dull, which makes its appearance a tad bit shabby. © Viral Bhayani This pair is a classic and is one of the best iterations of Off-White that has an uber-cool canvas. Add to that, the red tag and green laces make this one an OTT pair. © Viral Bhayani White sneakers, as a trend, are a classic now and this particular pair, with its unique design, definitely takes it to a whole new quirky level. Finally, a new trend we can hoard in our shoe-drobe too! As for its price, these are available on Nike's website for Rs. 12,000 approximately. A pair at this price is a steal! We have to say Arjun, this is the most fashionable airport look. Well done! View the full article

  17. To mark the fifth anniversary of the Army Public School (APS) massacre, Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed that he will not allow the militant mindset to take over the country, reported Radio Pakistan.In his message, PM Imran pledged that the militants will not be allowed to hold the nation hostage to its “bigoted vision”.The premier said the blood of the innocent united the entire nation against all forms of extremism, terrorism, violence and hatred. The PM also lauded the sacrifices of the armed forces, police and law enforcing agencies in the fight against terrorism.Also read: The mothers of APS martyrs: Waiting on a promise, longing for justiceWhile, Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that the APS carnage will never be forgotten.General Bajwa’s remark were shared by Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor on Twitter."Five of the involved terrorists have been hanged through military courts,” the army chief said as he offered a "salute to the martyrs and their families"."We have come a long way in failing terrorism as a nation.

  18. Ever since OnePlus came to existence, the whole ethos of the company was to offer flagship-level smartphones at an attractive price. However, with the recent OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro, we've seen the company divulge into making more premium smartphones that also come with an increased price tag. However, the Chinese company may change that with a mid-range smartphone next year. A mid-range smartphone will not only let OnePlus keep the prices down, but it will also expand its portfolio and bring the company back to its roots. © 91Mobiles and OnLeaks OnePlus smartphones are highly successful in India and western markets; however, with rising prices, OnePlus has not been able to offer a smartphone in the mid-range segment. A new leak via 91mobiles and @OnLeaks suggests that the OnePlus 8 Lite will be the answer to all of the company's problems. The rumoured smartphone is said to come with a flat punch-hole display similar to the Galaxy S10 and without a notch. The display size is rumoured to be 6.4-inches or 6.5-inches and the fingerprint sensor will be under the display like the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. The camera sensors are also going to get a slight update as it will come with a dual primary camera setup and an additional Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors for better 3D photography and AR features. © 91Mobiles and OnLeaks The most interesting part of the smartphone will be its specifications. Normally, every OnePlus smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset. However, the recently announced Snapdragon 865 chipset comes with a 5G X55 modem which will eventually drive up the cost. The Snapdragon 865 chipset does not come with a 4G modem which means OEMs like OnePlus will have no choice but to use the X55 modem or use an alternative chipset. It could be possible we might see the OnePlus 8 Lite using a different chipset to control the price of the smartphone. We can expect it to be powered by Snapdragon 765 SoC or some other chipset. We should know more about the mid-range smartphone closer to its launch. However, if rumours turn out to be true, OnePlus will return to its roots of offering the smartphone at an even more affordable price. For now, we would advise you to take the above information with a pinch of salt as it is based on leaks and rumour. Source: 91Mobiles View the full article
  19. Akshay Kumar recently,in an interview, revealed as to why he only works with debutant directors and not big directors. The 52-year-old actor, who will be next seen in his upcoming film Good Newwz, told IANS in an interview, “I work with new directors because big directors don't take me (in their films). That is the truth.” He added, "When big people don't take you (in their films), you have to start your journey. If you don't get a job in a big publication, you will go through a smaller one. From there you jump. You cannot just sit at home and wonder why people don't take me (in their films) despite me being so capable.” © Dharma Prroductions Akshay 'Khiladi' Kumar has worked with more than 20 newcomer directors such as Jagan Shakti for Mission Mangal, Shivam Nair for Naam Shabana, Tinu Suresh Desai for Rustam and many more. Besides, he also expressed how the films were gone to the ones who deserved it. "They (big directors) went to the people who deserved it. You see, it's not that only the Khans were around. There were the Kapoors and the others. I presume I didn't deserve it, so I earned it my way," he added. "I still don't have big directors (directing me). They are producing films with me but they are not directing. Karan Johar is there, you should ask him. You should ask Adi Chopra (Aditya Chopra)," said the actor. Speaking about having worked with a new director yet again in his upcoming film, Akshay said, "Raj Mehta is my 21st new director. I also feel their greed to do good work is far more than many old directors. For them, it is a do or die situation because (they think) if the film doesn't work, then they are finished." In the film Good Newwz, which is scheduled to release on December 27, Akshay will be seen with Kareena Kapoor, Kiara Advani, and Diljit Dosanjh in pivotal roles. View the full article

  23. In case your real life is so good that you don't feel the need to look at the virtual world of social media, then you will not know about the latest meme trend called 'gonna tell my kids'. Well, whoever created this trend is a genius. I mean, how can we miss out on an opportunity to mess with our future generation and misguide them about history by rewriting it incorrectly, right? Why make history when you can 'rewrite' it and have million others to vouch for it? Amidst the thousands of 'gonna tell my kids' memes, there was one that actually gave us a celebrity doppelganger of Alia Bhatt. The resemblance is so uncanny that it's making people regret not thinking of it before. We're talking about comedian and YouTuber Bhuvan Bam. That was the first thing I said to the photographer when I saw it: “Damn! I think I look like Alia” ð https://t.co/vhP1ICSqN0 — Bhuvan Bam (@Bhuvan_Bam) November 23, 2019 It all started when someone made a meme on Bhuvan Bam and wrote, "Gonna tell my kids this was bearded Alia Bhatt". Now, that we look at it, he actually does look like Alia who also happens to be Bhuvan's crush. Since everyone was talking about the meme, Bhuvan decided to share it with his fans but also play his shot at asking her out for coffee, "@aliaa08? Please let's go for a coffee date because I've started looking like my crush!" .â¦@aliaa08â© Please let's go for a coffee date because I've started looking like my crush! pic.twitter.com/DFBDrEZM0v — Bhuvan Bam (@Bhuvan_Bam) November 24, 2019 While Alia is yet to respond to this offer, Ranbir Kapoor fans have already turned him into 'Meme of the Year'.
