  1. If you were in school in the early 2000s and watched TV, you know who Rob is. Harun Robert or Rob as he was called, was a television presenter for MAD or Music Art & Dance, a programme that actually made arts and crafts quite fun. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial It wouldn’t be wrong to say that for many, his tricks and tips were far better than what the school curriculum had to offer. Naturally, then he has a crazy following on Instagram and YouTube, where he has two channels, one of which has numerous videos on craft and making cool stuff. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Scroll through his Instagram feed and you’ll see that he quite fashion-savvy. In fact, saying that he is one of the most fashionable television presenters we have ever had, wouldn’t be an exaggeration. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Here are a few photos to help you understand what we’re on about. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Simple, clean colours, and a functional silhouette, this is athleisure done right. Also, a major lesson, that in terms of shoes, one does not need to stay limited to fabric-based sneakers. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial We’re glad that he got rid of those dreadlocks. Not that there was anything wrong with them, its just that they were a bit 2000s. We have to say, Rob has his grooming game on point. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Now that’s how you rock a dhoti! Classy, and cool. We also love how he has added a different dimension to the otherwise monochrome outfit, with that golden border of the dhoti. A nice touch indeed. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Alright, this is the kind of outfit we will be opting for, for the next casual and laidback party that we attend - a denim shirt with a baseball cap, and a chunky watch. © Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Another lesson, why going off the beaten track when it comes to silhouettes is always stylish. We love the situation that’s going on around the collar and the front cowl in this photograph. Clearly, the man knows how to dress up in style, and what works for him. Not a whole lot has changed at least on the surface. However, the minor tweaks that have taken place, were small steps to keep things contemporary & up to date. Nice! View the full article
  2. It's that time of the year when we get a new Galaxy Note flagship from Samsung. This year, it's said to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, the successor to last year's Galaxy Note 10. Thanks to all the leaks and rumours, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect, and here's everything you need to know about the phone a week before its official announcement: Design & FeaturesThis year, it looks like we'll be getting two new devices - the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. We're expecting to see a 6.42-inch display on the regular Note 20 whereas the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is expected to have a 6.87-inch panel. Both are expected to be AMOLED panels as always. The Galaxy Note 20 is expected to have a flat-screen whereas the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is expected to sport a curved display. Both phones are also said to come with Gorilla Glass 7 this year. As for the design itself, here's what the phone looks like in leaked renders - © Twitter Ishan Agarwal A Galaxy Note flagship is incomplete without an S Pen, so, obviously, the Note 20 will have the S Pen too. Sadly, there's not a lot we know about this year's S Pen, but we think Samsung will definitely bring some new software features to make it better than last year's S Pen. SpecificationAs for the specs, both the Galaxy Note 20 as well as the Galaxy Note 20 Plus are expected to come with Snapdragon 865 processor. It could also be the new Snapdragon 865+ processor, although we'll have to wait a bit more to know exactly which processor it has. While the Galaxy Note 20 is expected to have up to 8GB RAM, the Galaxy Note 20 Plus is expected to sport up to 12GB RAM. As for storage, you can expect to see up to 512GB. Note flagships always have good battery life and this year we're expecting to see a 4,300 mAh battery on the Galaxy Note 20 whereas the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is expected to have a 4,500 mAh battery. © Twitter Evan Blass CameraThe Galaxy Note 20 is expected to have a quad-camera setup at the back which includes a 12-megapixel main sensor, a 64-megapixel telephoto zoom lens, 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and Time-of-Flight sensor on top. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, however, is expected to have the same setup seen on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. If that's true, then we'll see a 108-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel telephoto zoom lens, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, and laser focus sensor. The Note 20 Ultra might not have the 100x Space Zoom feature though. We'll have to wait for confirmation. Pricing & AvailabilityExclusive for MSP: Here are the prices of upcoming Samsung Galaxy products in Europe. Note20 4G: €999 Note20 5G: €1,099 Note20 Ultra 5G starts at €1,349 256GB Base Storage. Buds Live: ~€189 Note: May differ a bit due to VAT Link for full info: https://t.co/ndWIMBVVU6 pic.twitter.com/MmDcGqshsK — Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) July 27, 2020 We have to wait for an official confirmation from Samsung for the pricing and availability details but rumour has it that the Galaxy Note 20 will start at €999 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will start at €1,349.

  4. Pankaj Tripathi made his Bollywood debut in the year 2004 with a minor role in the movie Run. He is an actor par excellence who has proved his mettle as a versatile actor in many impactful roles over the years. His turning point in his cinema career was his power-packed performance in Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur that showcased his acting prowess. Since then there was no turning back. Adding one more feather to his hat, Tripathi even won the National Film Award – Special Mention for his role in Rajkummar Rao starrer Newton that was India's official entry to the Oscars. Here we have curated a list of some of the lesser-known impactful performances of Pankaj Tripathi over the years that made him the star that he is today. 1. Mithya © pankaj tripathi The 2008 film Mithya featured Ranveer Shorey and Naseeruddin Shah in lead roles. Creating a niche audience for itself, the film had a unique take on the famous Don story (that originally starred Amitabh Bachchan and was recreated with Shah Rukh Khan). Pankaj Tripathi had a small role to play in the film, yet he managed to prove his mettle as an actor par excellence, even while sharing screen space with seasoned actors like Saurabh Shukla, Harsh Chayya, and Vinay Pathak among others. 2. Dharm © Netflix This 2007 film starred Supriya Pathak and Pankaj Tripathi (in a supporting role as Suryaprakash). Dharm garnered a lot of critical appreciation and received a National Film Award for the best feature film on national integration. The movie was helmed by debutant Bhavna Talwar who courageously questioned the true meaning of religion through the film. You can stream it on Netflix. 3. Gurgaon © Netflix Another finest example of Pankaj Tripathi's innate talent is Gurgaon. The film is actually a testament to his talent as an actor, that despite playing characters that appear similar on paper, his performance on screen never feels repetitive. In this film, Pankaj completely internalized the character's emotions and gave a restrained performance as the real estate tycoon whose daughter gets kidnapped. You can watch this too on Netflix. 4. Powder © Yash Raj Films No one can forget his strong performance as the crime lord in popular film Gangs of Wasseypur. However, did you know Pankaj Tripathi played this role for the first ever time in Powder that showcased his acting prowess? As Naved, Tripathi's performance was layered, and he managed to create a villain that people were scared of and yet unwittingly sympathized with. If you haven’t watched it, go watch it on Netflix. 5. Coffee with D © Apex Entertainment This film didn’t do well at the box office. However, it was widely appreciated for the blazing performances of seasoned actors like Sunil Grover, Zakir Hussain, and Pankaj Tripathi among others. The satirical drama, that deals with an ambitious news anchor and his hunt for an 'ideal interviewee', was appreciated for the subject choice but not the treatment. 6. Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa © YouTube Interestingly, Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role, never got a commercial release in India; however, it premiered at the 2013 BFI London Film Festival. The movie also starred Pankaj Tripathi and Ananya Chatterjee, and marked the return of director Buddhadeb Dasgupta to Hindi cinema. The film’s plot is about a detective who decides to investigate his own life and the results that ensue. 7. Maazii © YouTube This thriller drama, starring Sumeet Nijhawan and Mona Wasu in lead roles, and Pankaj Tripathi, Zakir Hussain, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in supporting roles received great critical acclaim but failed to rake in moolah at the box office due to its limited release. Helmed by debutant Jaideep Chopra, the film was lauded for being an exceptionally well-crafted thriller and revolved around a family's struggle to deal with an unexpected tragedy. You can stream this online on YouTube. 8. Global Baba © YouTube This satirical comedy film is based on the spiritual babas that are so unique to Indian culture. The film stars Abhimanyu Singh, Pankaj Tripathi, Sanjay Mishra, and Ravi Kishan among others in pivotal roles. According to critics, this film greatly benefited from a dependable starcast 'led by Pankaj Tripathi', although some reviewers did believe that the idea did not translate well into the script. You can stream this on Prime Video. 9. Sarojini - Ek Nayi Pehal © Zee This lesser-known drama series featured Shiny Doshi, Mohit Sehgal and Pankaj Tripathi in lead roles. The show’s plot revolved around the struggles of the lead character against the patriarchal setup of the family she is married in. Even though Pankaj Tripathi played the antagonist, he shined in his role without resorting to melodramatic performance - a feature common in many Hindi soap operas. He absolutely stoodout among other actors in the show. 10. Doosukeltha © YouTube Finally, here we talk about Tripathi’s Telugu film, which is a romantic drama. Titled Doosukeltha, the film was commercially successful and it featured Vishnu Manchu and Lavanya Tripathi in lead roles. Pankaj Tripathi played the role of the antagonist Minister Dilleeswara Rao and his nuanced performance was widely appreciated by audiences and critics alike. That is Pankaj Tripathi for you. He was also widely appreciated for his role of a godman in the second season of the popular Netflix series Sacred Games. He will now be next seen in Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl which features Jahnvi Kapoor in the lead role. He plays her father in the upcoming film which is directed and co-written by Sharan Sharma.

  5. Game of Thrones is one of the most iconic shows aired on Television and everyone had high hopes from the series finale season. The watch has literally ended but the last episode of the show demonstrated how every character chose their path in the end. © HBO Some of us were not happy the way the show ended or were disappointed in general with the whole season. As investing years into the TV show, the audience expected the finale season to be beyond our expectations. © HBO Recently, a Digital Spy poll has voted Game Of Thrones as the greatest TV show of the 21st century and the list is closely followed by Stranger Things and Doctor Who. What came as a surprise to people is that Breaking Bad has been placed 5th on the list. Now, that is a shock for a lot of us but it seems like that people on Twitter didn’t take it well as according to many GOT’s finale wasn’t worth it. So, here’s what people have to say about this – Just to clarify, GOT is a great show, but having 5 great seasons and 2-3 ok seasons does not win you greatest show of 21st century. Breaking Bad and Mad Men can duke it out for the top spot Sidebar: Even though Sopranos started in 1999 is it still considered a 21 century show? — Sick&Tired (@FuneeClips) July 30, 2020really enjoyed the show. but the best of the 21st century? naaaaaah.... it was great initially but trickled off in the last two seasons for sure. — Lasselelle (@Lasselelle) July 30, 2020*Watches season 8 “game of thrones is the worst tv show of the 21st century!.” — Badass (@g_carroll16) August 1, 2020It was a cultural phenomenon until the final season. Now, it may as well never have existed. pic.twitter.com/VY2kXkc6OI — an cailín cainteach☘️ (@Trillian_01) July 30, 2020It COULD have been the greatest TV show of the 21st Century. — . . .

Most popular? Sure, maybe. But greatest? No. https://t.co/JT8YCRJRzP — Brendan McDonald (@BrenTalksMovies) July 31, 2020Seasons 1-4 were alright. In 5 it started to falter, but still had good episodes. In 6 it fell apart, and by season 8 it was a pile of pig feces, which is probably an insult to pigs. Greatest TV show of the 21st century? I can think of a few dozen that were greater. — A. Bear Esq., MBE, ICBM, PSU, E173, ISO2171, QED. (@Bearocalypse) July 31, 2020It is many people’s favorite but we are not sure if it is the best show of the 21st century. Also, it got the popular vote which means the show is extremely popular and all of us have watched it. But, is it really the best show of the 21st century? Let us know in the comments section below.

  7. Money Heist has a huge fan base across the globe and it got crazier when Netflix’s originals TV show released its 4th season in April. And now Netflix announced that Part 5 will be released shortly but that’s going to be the final season of the show. While the fans were expecting that the heist at the Bank of Spain Should have ended in part four but the end left us all thrilled. So, here are some fan theories that have flooded the internet and we have found the most popular ones for you. Inspector Alicia Sierra will help Professor and the gang. I think Alicia Sierra will make a deal with El Profesor and become a new member of the group. The police threw her under the bus and she wants revenge on them more than she wanted to catch la banda.#LaCasaDePapel4 pic.twitter.com/kpXteXF991 — mia (@lmwh3) April 4, 2020 At the end of part 4, Alicia Sierra was successful in finding the professor and fans think that she will change sides to join the Professor. Fans also think that she’d be doing this to take revenge from the police. The gang will escape from the main gate of the Bank of Spain. © Netflix The gang didn’t dig any tunnel for escape and so fans believe that they will exit through the main door this time. Also, a Reddit user thinks that the gang will throw gold granules from the sky which will cause chaos and help them escape wearing Dali masks. Berlin is Alicia Sierra’s husband. © Netflix In the show, Berlin was suffering from a disease and in Season 4, Alicia also reveals that her husband German died of cancer. Not only this she told Raquel that his last words were, "Turn on the news". The brainchild behind the popular theory is that Berlin is the capital city of Germany and Alicia’s husband's name was also ‘German’. Alicia Sierra and Tatiana are one person and her heist name is Paris.MONEY HEIST 4 THEORY (Spoiler) Sierra (the Pregnant Woman) is deep undercover. She is Tatiana. Do you remember who Tatiana is? Tatiana is BERLIN'S EX GIRLFRIEND! Sierra (Tatiana) is part of the Heist and her heist name is Paris. 🤯#MoneyHeist4#LaCasaDePapelS4 pic.twitter.com/cpqnVwYCLL — LANCE (@pajo_leeland) April 5, 2020Apart from Berlin and the Professor, the only person who knew details about the heist was Tatiana and that’s what has led to this theory. People think that Alicia Sierra and Tatiana are one person. Berlin Might be alive © Netflix According to one theory, which I think is given by a Kyuki Saas Bhi Bahu Thi fan as a few think that Berlin will return in the final season. Berlin was wearing a vest when he was shot by the police in season 2 and season 4 showed many flashbacks from Berlin’s wedding. All this is leading to a probability that Berlin might not be dead. Tokyo is the only gang member alive in the end © Netflix The narration of the whole show is done by Tokyo and which makes fans believe that she is the only gang member who survived through it till the end. Which theories do you believe? Let us know in the comments section below! View the full article

  13. The Beckham family has always been known for having a great fashion sense. While football legend David Beckham modelled for different brands during and after his athletic career, his wife Victoria Beckham runs a fashion business and their son Brooklyn Beckham is a model as well. So, it should not be surprising that these guys love to take care of themselves and groom their bodies in the finest ways possible. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@cruzbeckham) Having said that, when you are given a ‘testicle trimmer’ by your own 15-year-old, people aren’t too sure of how to react to it. Recently, the former English football team captain shared an image on social media thanking his youngest son, Cruz Beckham for gifting him a trimmer for his ‘nether regions’. © Instagram/David Beckham “Things my son buys all us Beckham boys,” David wrote. “Thanks @CruzBeckham.” The gadget comes from a company named ‘Balls’ and claims to provide the best shave for “beautiful, shining balls”, so that David or any of their other customers don’t have to worry about… hair. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@davidbeckham) Ever since 2001, David Beckham has also been known as ‘Goldenballs’ because of his wife’s hilarious exchange during the chat show Parkinson. Speaking on the show at the time, Victoria said: "What better person to look at than my own husband to see how somebody can turn that all around? I call him Goldenballs now." "That's one of those things I shouldn't have said," she added in a failed attempt to take it back. The former Spice Girls singer was obviously talking about the 1998 FIFA World Cup. During the match between England and Argentina, Beckham was issued a red card for tripping an opposing player and was thrown out of the field. When eventually, the match went to penalties, many believe that it was the absence of Beckham, a specialist for England, that led him to a 4-3 defeat against the Argentines. That one small nudge cost Beckham millions of fans from all across the world and it took him over four years to redeem himself and once again become England’s hero. View the full article
  14. There exists a very popular saying “Never meet your heroes, because they will surely disappoint you.” For Muhammad Shahab Ghauri, a fan of the Pakistani cricket team, that phase took a whole new meaning when he met Haris Rauf, a right-arm pacer who plays for the Men in Green, that is Pakistan. The young cricketing fan thought that it was going to be one of the greatest days of his life when he managed to get a selfie with the athlete. For the image to be more special, the two slid their masks down to their chins so that both their faces would show. © Muhammad Shahab Ghauri - Facebook Ghauri got closer to Rauf for the image and got a nice smiling image captured that he’d remember for the rest of his life… just not because of the reason he thought at the moment. A little while later, Ghauri, happy as he was to get that photo, wondered why Haris wasn’t selected for the 15-man Pakistan squad that is set to take on England in the next couple of weeks. So he searched for information on Google and what he found, left him worrying for his life, literally. Fast bowler Mohammad Aamir is set to join Pak cricket team in Eng for the T20 Series. He will replace Haris Rauf whose 5th Covid test came positive out of six.#PAKvENG — Mirza Iqbal Baig (@mirzaiqbal80) July 19, 2020 Rauf was refused entry into the team because the cricketer was tested COVID-19 positive a few days before the team was scheduled to leave for England. What was even more worrisome was the fact that Rauf was tested six times, five of those tests showed positive results. So, instead of him, Mohammad Amir was picked for the spot. Ghauri eventually went on Facebook to share his experience with the world: Hahahahaha Also Haris, stay at home you arsehat. Posted by Dennis Does Cricket on Tuesday, 28 July 2020One of the most important measures for a Covid-19 positive patient is to practise social distancing and quarantine at home or the hospital depending upon the severity of the infection. It was later brought to light that Rauf had broken the quarantine protocol established by the Pakistan Cricket Board ahead of the England tour and this might have led to the cricketer getting in touch with the contagion. To be aware of carrying the virus and still roaming around publicly is not only a safety hazard but can also lead to an exponential amount of people contracting it as well. It was a highly irresponsible move by Haris Rauf who is not only a public figure but also an inspiration to thousands of his fans. View the full article
  15. Sanjay Dutt made his Bollywood film industry debut with a box-office blockbuster hit Rocky. He has a huge fan following even after many trials and tribulations that he faced in his life. Sanju Baba has given us films like Yalgaar, Gumrah, Dushman, and many more. He has been the Bollywood heartthrob and people have loved him for the roles he played and the movies he did. But, it’s not always rainbow and sunshine! And Sanju baba has also tasted failure with some of his films. So, here we go- Zila Ghaziabad The film stars Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, Vivek Oberoi, and many more. The film’s plot revolves around a gang war that takes place in a district of Ghaziabad due to the rise of the rivalry between gangsters Fauji and Satbir. The film left the audience disappointed and bombed the box-office. Department Sanjay Dutt is playing the role of an inspector in the film and the film left most people sleeping while watching the film. The film’s storyline was plain boring and didn’t make any sense. Also, the film didn’t get numbers at the box-office. Rascals The film tanked at the box-office and wasn’t critically acclaimed.

  18. When Indian actors have some nasty run-ins with the law, news outlets, as well as the common public, have a field day, thanks to the voyeuristic sensibilities that we have developed. Obviously, when it comes to Indian singers and musicians, the fervour among audiences is not different at all. © Viral Bhayani For some reason, most of us think that musicians and singers lead a larger and wilder lifestyle, and have come to expect them to be involved in all kinds of stuff, from hard drugs to an insane drinking habit. More often than not, this might not be the case. However, when we see them get embroiled in a legal battle, we often assume that the people in question live a wild life. © Twitter/its_badshah Here are a few singers and musicians that have been embroiled in some or the other legal battle over the years, which their fans want to forget. 1. Daler Mehndi - Human Trafficking © Wiki Commons Daler Mehendi was actually convicted in a case back from 2003, which accused him of being involved in a human trafficking ring. He was sentenced to two years in prison, but was later granted bail by a district court in Patiala. Apparently, the singer, along with a couple of his brothers would charge up to a crore to take people abroad as a part of their touring troupe and drop them off in USA. 2. Honey Singh - Obscenity & Outraging The Modesty Of Women © Twitter/asliyoyo It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but Honey Singh, like a number of Punjabi Rappers, has been accused of obscene lyrics, and outraging the modesty of women, a number of times now. Several police complaints have been filed against the rapper, a number of times. However, things got a little serious for the rapper when an infamous song by the name of Volume 2, whch glorified sexual misconduct and rape, were attributed to him. Honey Singh & his camp have maintained that they did not have anything to do with the song. 3. Badshah - Outraging The Modesty Of Women & Insulting Religious Sentiments © Twitter/its_badshah Badshah’s Genda Phool has caused him more pain than any other song perhaps. First of all there was the bruhaha over cultural appropriation and issues with credits to the original singer, Ratan Kahar. Once that thing was settled, a West Bengal NGO filed a formal complaint, stating that Badshah offended Bengali sentiments by showing Bengali Women in a vulgar manner. The complaint also stated that it hurt religious sentiments by showing the Goddess Durga in a vulgar manner. The complaint eventually led to an FIR. 4. Mika Singh - Sexual Misconduct & Outraging The Modesty Of Women © Viral Bhayani Mika Singh just had to make it to this list. Although he has been embroiled in a number of cases over the years, including possession of illegal currency and alcohol, the two main legal cases of his that are well known for is one involving Rakhi Sawant, and one involving a 17-year-old Brazillian model, for which he was arrested in Dubai. Apparently, he sent some unsolicited nude photos to the minor, and behaved inappropriately, after promising the model a role in a Bollywood film. 5. Aditya Narayan - Rash Driving & Endangering The Lives Of Others © Sony Entertainment Aditya Narayan too has been embroiled in a number of controversies. A few years back, he was seen in a video verbally abusing and getting into a physical altercation with the ground staff of a reputed airline. Soon after that, he was arrested for crashing into an auto and seriously injuring the driver, and a passenger. Although not much details of the case are available in public forums, several reports claimed, that at the time of the accident, Narayan was under the influence, and was intoxicated behind the wheels. 6. Papon - Sexual Misconduct With A Minor © Wiki Commons While judging a reality singing contest, Papon allegedly kissed and inappropriately touched a minor girl. Papon was mentoring the girl in the show. Apparently, the incident took place when they were shooting a celebration sequence for Holi. Papon was charged under POSCO or the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act of 2012, and is under trial. 7. Ankit Tiwari - Sexual Misconduct & Rape © Twitter/ATFans Ankit Tiwari made headlines in 2014 when he and his brother were accused of raping a 28-year-old woman. In 2017, the court acquitted the singer and his brother, after the woman changed her statement was deemed hostile. However, after the hearings, she gave a number of interviews, where she claimed that she was forced to change her statement. The most recent development of the case is that it was being considered to be reinvestigated, once the case is reopened. 8. Sidhu Moosewaala - Violations Of The Arms Act © Twitter/sidhumoosewala A Punjabi singer who has been rising among the ranks of the most popular Punjabi singers, Sidhu Moosewaala, is also currently under investigation, after a video clip showing him shoot an AK-47 at a firing range went viral. Common citizens are not allowed at any firing ranges, and neither are they allowed to own and possess automatic firearms. View the full article
  19. Hrithik Roshan is known as the ‘Greek God’ of the industry and he is also a heartthrob of Bollywood. He has given us some amazing films like Super 30 & War recently but in the past, he has done blunders just like any other Bollywood actor. He is one actor who has surprised us by keeping a well-toned body throughout his journey in Bollywood. Also, his fitness regime has often motivated his fans to become better and make a better physique. He gave his Bollywood debut with Amisha Patel in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and the movie turned out to be a hit. The film left the audience impressed but then, he gave some flops that were total disasters and made the audience think twice before watching his films. Mohenjo Daro The film starred Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in the lead role. The story of the film revolves around a farmer who travels the city of Mohenjo Daro and grows to fall in love with a rich woman. The film was declared a flop as it didn’t make much money at the box-office and also couldn’t impress the audience. Kites The film starred Barbara Mori and Hrithik Roshan in the lead roles. The storyline of the film revolved around a dance teacher who marries an immigrant woman so that they could get a green card. But, when they meet again, they fall in love with each other. The film disappointed the audience and apart from the songs of the film audience didn’t find anything worthwhile. Mai Prem Ki Diwani Hun The Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan starrer film are still talked about and made fun of as both the actors overacted in the film. The film’s story wasn’t that bad but the movie turned out to be a cringe-fest due to Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan’s overacting in it. Mujhse Dosti Karoge The movie stars Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherji in the lead role. The film’s plot revolves around a bizarre storyline of how Raj falls in love with Tina after she writes him emails every day after he has moved overseas with his family. However, he is unaware that Pooja is the one writing the emails to him on Tina's behalf. The film couldn’t do numbers at the box-office and tanked badly. Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage This film starred Hrithik Roshan and Amisha Patel in the lead roles. The film did not impress the audience at all and flopped at the box-office. The film revolves around the story of a girl who desires nothing more than love in life and wants to get married to Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) but her family doesn’t agree and created problems for them. Her father wants her to get married to a family friend’s son and would stop for nothing. View the full article
  20. Last month, the Indian government decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India, which included some of the popular apps like TikTok. Now, the government has banned 47 more Chinese apps in India, and this time, we're looking at the apps that were acting as clones to the ones that were banned previously. This news comes hot on the heels of the reports about PUBG Mobile and other Chinese apps getting banned in the country. While we don't have an official confirmation on that, we do know that these 47 clones have been banned. #Breaking 1st on TIMES NOW | Indian Govt bans 47 more Chinese apps which are reportedly, clones of the 59 applications which were earlier banned. Mohit Bhatt with details. pic.twitter.com/uUNNsALz4w — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) July 27, 2020 Following the government's order to ban 59 Chinese apps on June 29, they've repeatedly warned the makers of the banned Chinese apps to strictly comply with the ban. The government said that those violating the order would face serious action. And now, we're looking at 47 more apps. It goes to show how seriously the government is tracking down these apps. People are calling it the government's 'second digital strike on China'. As of now, we don't have a confirmed list of apps banned this time. But as mentioned earlier, it includes the clones of Chinese apps that were banned previously. © Reuters In case you didn't know, the government is banning Chinese apps citing privacy reasons. The government said they've received numerous complaints against the Chinese apps about how they're "stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India". "The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," the ministry said. We're not sure if the government is tracking down more apps, but we won't be surprised to see more Chinese apps getting banned in India. Source: TimesNow View the full article

  22. Microsoft’s hardware division has started to churn out some incredible devices that were missing for quite a few years. Then the company announced the Surface series of laptops which not only combines great design but also explores the future with new chipsets, a stylus and a more integrated design. The new Surface X Pro is amongst one of those laptops from the Surface series that comes with a custom ARM chipset that may just be future of laptops and Microsoft tablets. This time around, Microsoft has made a more comprehensive laptop for everyday users who are always on the move. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla While many have opinions about netbooks/tablets/laptops that are targeted towards “mobile workers”; the landscape has changed ever since the COVID-19 pandemic. People are working from home and not everyone needs a full-blown laptop for emails, basic image editing and using Microsoft office. Surface Pro X is the perfect offering for Windows users who are looking for the most portable laptop that can last all day, has a sexy design and can always stay connected with mobile internet connectivity. Here’s why we think the Surface Pro X may just be the future of portable computing machines: Design If you are looking for something sexy, beautiful and eye-catching, you cannot go wrong with the Surface Pro X. We’ve tested quite a few laptops at MensXP and the Surface Pro X may just the most gorgeous laptop we’ve used all year. The laptop has extremely thin bezels on the sides, a curved aluminium body and a beautiful 13-inch display. It looks very much similar to the Surface Pro 7 however there are some design aspects that make the Surface Pro X stand out. While the entire body is made of metal, the back of the laptop is a major fingerprint magnet. A laptop with a design that is more in-line with a tablet; you will be holding this laptop quite a lot and subsequently have a lot of fingerprint at the back. You can’t really avoid this problem unless you use some form of skin to cover up the back of the laptop. As we mentioned earlier, the Surface Pro X has a very tablet-like design, you can draw comparisons with Apple’s iPad Pro. It is 7.3mm thin and has a premium feel to it similar to the iPad Pro. It is particularly light and weighs only 775 grams which is lighter than most laptops you can buy today. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In order to give a more of a laptop vibe to the Surface Pro X, the laptop comes with a keyboard cover that is at par with modern keyboards on laptops. We loved the fact that the keyboard case is quite lightweight and doesn’t make the total weight of the laptop as heavy as the iPad Pro. There are magnets to keep the cover in pace and doesn’t come out even if you try aggressively shake it off. Additionally, the outer layer of the keyboard cover has a black Alcantara fabric that has a very similar texture as suede. Additionally, the keyboard cover also comes with the Surface Slim Pen and is not sold separately unlike the Apple Pencil for the iPad Pro. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla For people wondering about the ports and connections, there aren’t many on offer as the design resembles more of a tablet than a laptop. Due to space constraints, the Surface Pro X comes with two USB-C ports that can be used for charging, data transfers and display out. Having said that, we couldn’t ignore the fact the Surface Pro X does not have a headphone jack and neither a microSD slot to expand storage. You can use a USB-C to 3.55mm dongle for audio output if you’re not a fan of Bluetooth audio but we would have loved to see that flexibility. Having said that, you can install a physical SIM card for LTE connectivity or alternately use the e-sim feature via Windows 10. If you plan to use e-sim; do note that currently, only Airtel and Reliance Jio have support for the new form of connectivity. You will find the SIM tray below the kickstand that can be popped and is highly accessible making it easy to switch SIM cards if you are always travelling internationally. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Finally, in order to use the Surface X Pro, there is a small wedge at the back from which you can take out the metal kickstand that lets you rest the Surface Pro X on the table. While this the kickstand design is great to use practically anywhere; it isn’t comfortable to use on your lap. If you don’t use your laptop on your; you know lap; using the Surface Pro X won’t be an issue. However, if you want to relax and work at the same time let’s say on a bed or a recliner; you will find it difficult to use as the laptop needs a flat surface for the kickstand to rest on. Display As we mentioned earlier, the touchscreen display on the Surface X Pro is absolutely gorgeous and has a resolution of 2880 x 1920. However, the display does not have a few features that are now part of modern laptops and tablets. For example, the display does not have support for high-dynamic-range (HDR)/Dolby Vision or wide-colour gamut. The display also does not have any anti-glare which could be disadvantageous for using outdoors or brightly lit areas. Having said that, the display does have an “enhanced” colour mode for boosting contacts and correcting sRBG colours whenever needed. We would recommend turning on the “enhanced” display mode if you intend to watch movies and TV shows on Netflix and other video streaming platforms. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In our tests, the display on the Surface X Pro had a brightness level of 410 nits, which is higher than most laptops and in line with the more premium offerings. Watching movies and TV shows is an absolute delight on this display however with no support for HDR/Dolby Vision; you really don’t get the full experience, especially since the iPad Pro, does both those things flawlessly. Surface Slim Pen The Surface Pro X also comes with a new slim pen that can be stored in the keyboard cover. The dedicated storage space of the Pen is a nice touch and holds the pen firmly with magnets. The Slim Pen also charges in the storage space wirelessly which was a smart move on Microsoft’s part. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The pen works very similarly to a stylus and the back end of the pen can be used as an eraser. The same back end also functions as the Bluetooth button for paragon purposes. The stem of the pen has two buttons that can be assigned certain functions. The Microsoft Surface Slim pen can also be used when tilted and has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Having said that, the pen is not really meant to be used by artists for graphic design work as it has a jittery effect when drawing straight lines. It seems Microsoft made this particular pen for more rudimentary purposes such as taking notes, making annotations and navigation. Keyboard and Trackpad The keyboard, trackpad and camera have a direct impact on the overall experience of a laptop and it wasn’t disappointing on the Surface Pro X. The keyboard feels quite familiar and is very similar to previous Surface laptops. The keys feel great to type on and has ample key travel to make you feel right at home. The keyboard also has three different levels of backlighting which is always good to have when working in dimly lit environments. The keyboard is as good as any previous Surface laptop and other offerings in the same price category. In fact, this is the closest thing Apple’s magic keyboard cover for the iPad Pro. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The trackpad is also large enough to use so that you don’t feel fatigued when using it for navigation and other actions. It is probably the most used part of any laptop and the glass-topped trackpad makes using it a breeze. It’s smooth and does not have a rough texture that could add any friction when using the trackpad repeatedly. Performance When it comes to the performance, the Surface Pro X is powered by Microsoft’s custom SQ1 professor based on ARM64’s architecture. Most recent laptops have been based on the X86 architecture either from Intel or AMD, however, this is the first time we got to check out something based on ARM by Microsoft. The most impressive feat of this laptop would be the fact that it runs Windows 10 Home. Even though the ARM64 architecture may not sound capable of handling traditional 32-bit apps, in our tests they ran without any hiccups. In fact, most of the time this app ran fine however there was a slight hit in performance. Native apps built for the ARM architecture ran flawlessly however if you plan on using apps that were developed for the X86 architecture, you will not get the optimum experience. If you plan on using Adobe’s suite of applications like Photoshop, you may have to wait a bit as the Surface X Pro simply emulates the X86 app versions. Adobe has said they are in the process of making or porting the apps optimised on ARM64 chipsets. Having said that, if you need a comparison, the SQ1 chipset does outperform i5-8250U CPUs and did fairly well in our benchmark tests. The Surface Pro X has 8GB of onboard RAM that cannot be upgraded, however, it was more than enough for launching heavy apps and carry out basic tasks. As for SSD, our tests showed it is capable of 2,019 MB/s of reading speed and 832 MB/s write speed. That’s more or less in line with modern laptops that come with NVME SSDs and is even higher than previous Surface laptops. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In our Geekbench 5 test, the Surface Pro X managed to score 752 in the single-core test and 2,980 in the multi-core tests which easily beats other ARM-based laptops in the same category. As for graphics, the Adreno 680 GPU is good enough to emulate mobile games and console games from previous generations but do not expect it to run modern PC games. Having said that, we can expect the Surface Pro X to run Microsoft’s upcoming game streaming service quite well which could be great for portable gaming. That’s kind of expected with the ARM63 architecture but it was still impressive to see score 7,065 in 3DMark's GPU-intensive Night Raid 1.0 benchmark. The Final Say If you’re in the market for a laptop that offers decent battery life, LTE connections, modern design and something more portable, the Surface X Pro is probably the perfect laptop for you. Based on an ARM64 chipset, the Surface Pro X gives us a glimpse into the future of portable laptops that will become the norm for most professionals. The Microsoft Surface Pro X is available at a starting price of Rs 1,01,990.00 while if you want to get the keyboard along with it; it is currently available for Rs 1,14,180.00 on Amazon.

  23. The opening partnership between Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag is considered to be one of the best and most successful duos to open the batting order for any international cricket team. Having shared the pitch in 93 One-Day Internationals, the two went on to form a 3,919 run-partnership over the years and with an impressive average of 42.13. In the process, the two also share 12 centuries and 18 half-centuries and have the fourth-best record in all over international cricket. © Reuters But because of the extremely shy and reserved nature of Sehwag, the idea to go ahead with this partnership might not have worked in the first place. Thankfully, Sachin had already been in this spot before and he knew what he had to do for Sehwag to start opening up and feel like a part of the partnership they were destined to make. In a conversation with Vikram Sathaye on What The Duck, Tendulkar said: “When Viru (Virender Sehwag) had just joined, he was a shy guy. He just wouldn’t talk to me. I thought this can’t work. If we need to play together, bat together, I need to make him feel comfortable. So, I told him 'let’s catch up on dinner'. Where he told me he was a vegetarian.” © Reuters “He was not eating chicken because he was told he will become fat. Only thing I told him was if I looked fat! Ever since, he has been eating chicken,” he added. The relationship between Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar continues to remain as great as it once was on the field. © Reuters For Tendulkar, Sehwag is just Viru, the man who can only be kept from talking only if he is given something to eat. While for Sehwag, Sachin is nothing short of his god. They laugh, make fun of each other and share hilarious stories from their time in the middle of the ground but the sense of mutual admiration and respect that they have for each other comes from years of getting to know each other and become family. And that’s what they are, family. View the full article
  24. There's a feud going on currently post Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely demise. Kangana Ranaut has now expressed her displeasure and raised her voice against nepotism, talking about the movie mafias of the film industry. © MensXP © Twitter/TeamKanganaRanaut The actress recently was on a talk show with Arnab Goswami, where she didn't shy away from speaking the truth and highlighted the names of several moviemakers, who are out there, 'destroying the career of many newcomers and are tormenting them emotionally and mentally'. Kangana has been at loggerheads with filmmaker Karan Johar, ever since she came on his show, Koffee With Karan in 2017, where the whole fume of Nepotism started to spur. © Twitter/Kangana_FC After the recent interview with Goswami, Kangana's statement on Karan asking her to leave the industry, made the netizens dig up the clip, where the filmmaker told Kangana to stop playing the victim card. All this happened at a summit, which was downright humiliating. This the clip Kangana is talking about, Karan telling her to leave and people applauding. He attacked her on an international summit #KanganaSpeaksToArnab pic.twitter.com/ODl0jTHaxe — Navi (@NaviKRStan) July 18, 2020 In this interview, Karan Johar was asked about his opinion on the statement made by Kangana on his show at the LSE Indian Forum in 2017, to which he replied “I am done with Kangana playing the woman card and the victim card. You can’t be this victim who has a sad story at every given point of time, to tell how you have been terrorised by the bad world of the industry. Leave it." He also added "Who is forcing you on a gunpoint to be in the movies, leave, do something else,” And obviously, after hearing such bitter words for the actress, it became a talking point for the netizens and they are leaving no opportunity in slamming Karan for his insulting remark. Here's what everyone is saying: Look how he is smiling with an attitude after insulting their own industry talents. This is the first& foremost wish of karan to fill the entire industry with only starkids and that only starkids get all appreciation,fame& recognition not only in this industry but also worldwide. — Trishna Sharma (@Trishna82233652) July 18, 2020 WOW, I dont understand why are people applauding?! He is bashing a woman on interantional stage? Why do we tolerate him? #OnlyCBIForSSR — Isha Kaur (@IshaKaurssr2) July 18, 2020 Indian youth is so much brain washed & degraded that..a Chaka is their hero while a girl fighting for her place in film industry is laughed at. — bansi lal kaul (@Bansikaul) July 18, 2020 Went too far! Shameless hijda @karanjohar what's your talent? Running father's money to suit agenda? Apologise to @KanganaTeam , return Padma award, You don't deserve it — Only NamasteOnly Veggie (@Anu18Radha) July 18, 2020 @karanjohar She didn't come into the industry with your help or to appease you. She came to pursue acting which she likes. Who are you to ask her to leave? And students of @LSE who applauded to this, what a great achievement to make it to LSE without a spine. — Grrrrrrr! (@CherryColaZing) July 18, 2020 She has the guts to take on bollywood and this is the label given to her.. Victim card? She is standing up for herself + the many others who do not have a voice. She is also talking on behalf of the future upcoming talent that will be shut down if they don't play by their rules — Billy the Kid (@Baaaaadgoat) July 19, 2020 Run by their chamchas...I must confess I was blindfolded by their stunts and fake PR against @KanganaTeam but now I respect her more than ever — Reneesie (@Reneesie1) July 18, 2020In the interview, the actress remembered the time when Karan debased her with such a statement and there was hooting and people even clapped for it. She also mentioned that the industry choked everything for her, including marriage and financial security. She further asked, "Don't you think the thought of suicide would cross my mind?" Not just that, Kangana has also raised questions against other filmmakers including Mahesh Bhatt and Aditya Chopra, accusing them of vandalizing the career of the newcomers.
