  2. The popular belief is that one cannot be on good terms with their step or half brothers and sisters. However, many of us will agree to have come across numerous people who completely adore their half-siblings and share a pretty close bond with them. However, in an industry like Bollywood where every celebrity is always under scrutiny, it comes as refreshing news when we witness Bollywood actors bonding with their half brothers or sisters and changing the popular narrative that half-siblings cannot be family in the true sense of the world. © Twitter HDpopcorns From spending time with each other to genuinely hyping up one another and standing strong by their side, many Bollywood half-siblings have shown us the way forward when it comes to being great friends with their half-brothers and sisters. Here are 5 Bollywood actors who share a close bond with their half-brothers and sisters and showed us that blood-ties are more than social labels: 1. Arjun Kapoor - Janhvi & Khushi Kapoor © Star World Arjun, Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi really make for a great family picture every time the siblings pose together. However, this change truly came after Srideviâs passing which really helped the half-siblings connect on a personal level. Since then, Janhvi has often opened up about Arjun and Anshula and how much she appreciates their presence in her life. 2. Sara Ali Khan - Taimur Ali Khan © Facebook saraalikhanlove Sara and Taimurâs adorable pictures never fail to make people break into a smile. Little Tim seems very comfortable with his half-sister Sara and half-brother Ibrahim Ali Khan, who celebrate many festivals together apart from also chilling together as a family every now and then. While Sara calls Taimur a âbundle of happinessâ to be around, Taimur also has a special nickname for his dear sister - âGolâ. 3. Alia Bhatt - Pooja Bhatt © Twitter aliaasangels Despite a huge difference in their age, Alia and Pooja share a very close friendship and have never shied away from openly expressing their affection for each other. From praising younger sister Alia to sharing childhood pictures together and standing up for one another, Alia and Pooja Bhatt definitely prove that blood is thicker than water. 4. Shahid Kapoor - Ishaan Khatter © Twitter Pinkvilla-celebsandcinema Perhaps one of the most notable pairs on the list simply because of the strong bond they share with each other. On multiple occasions, Shahid has proved how much he adores and loves his half-brother Ishaan. Ishaan too completely dotes on his elder brother and often hangs out with him and his family. 5. Prateik Babbar - Juhi & Aarya Babbar © BCCL For the longest time, Prateik was rather shy about his personal life. However, recent years have brought a change in him and given us a glimpse of his personal ties beyond his immediate family. Ever since he made peace with his father and his family, Prateik also opened his heart to his half-sister Juhi and half-brother Aarya. From celebrating festivals together, to being Prateikâs biggest cheerleaders, the siblings publicly shower younger brother Prateik with lots of love. View the full article
  3. The Indian government's decision to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India is still making headlines across the globe. This is indeed a huge and unprecedented move by our government that is going to do a great deal of damage to TikTok, in particular. TikTok has a huge user-base in India with millions of daily active users. And since the app is completely unusable right now, TikTok's parent company is facing a huge loss of up to $6 billion. The same has been confirmed by China's state-run media The Global Times. Here, check it out - The loss of Chinese internet company ByteDance â mother company of Tik Tok â could be as high as $6 billion after Indian government banned 59 Chinese apps including Tik Tok, following deadly border clash between Indian and Chinese troops last month: source pic.twitter.com/wGvnqVO7mR â Global Times (@globaltimesnews) July 1, 2020 Bytedance could lose up to Rs 45 thousand crore given now that the app has been taken down from both the Google Play Store as well as the App Store. The report further noted that TikTok was downloaded 112 million times in May alone, a lot of those downloads came from India. Now, you can imagine the extent of damage we're talking about. Global Times also noted that the move has dealt a severe blow to the confidence of Chinese investors and traders. Not to mention, this decision comes just as China is yet to fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. For safety, security, defence, sovereignty & integrity of India and to protect data & privacy of people of India the Government has banned 59 mobile apps. Jai Hind! ð®ð³ â Ravi Shankar Prasad (@rsprasad) June 29, 2020 As far as India is concerned, we already have a ton of TikTok alternatives on the market. From Mitron to Chingari, we already have a lot of apps up and running. It's time for Indian developers to step in and come up with more innovative apps. View the full article
  4. There's been a lot of tech controversies over the years that made people burst out with anger and straight-up boycott the products. We've seen it a lot of times in the past and we're witnessing something similar right now. In case you don't know, here's a quick list of the biggest tech boycotts we've seen over the years: 1. Boycott Facebook © Facebook Back in 2018, Facebook was in a lot of trouble for the scandal involving Cambridge Analytica. It was one of the biggest data breaches we had ever seen, affecting millions of users across the globe. It sparked the conversation about privacy and data breach, but it came at a huge cost. People across the globe started boycotting Facebook by deleting their accounts and uninstalling the app. A lot of people still don't use Facebook, but the dust seems to have settled since then. That being said, it'll go as one of the biggest tech boycotts we've seen. 2. Boycott Chinese Products © Xiaomi A lot of Indians are currently protesting against the use of Chinese products due to the on-going border tensions between the two countries. When it comes to boycotting Chinese products, there are a lot of devices here like smartphones, TVs, appliances, and other peripherals. It's not as easy as it sounds, but the movement is going strong none the less. 3. Boycott Snapchat © Reuters There was a time when Snapchat was in the middle of an unavoidable controversy back in 2017 when CEO Evan Spiegel mentioned 'poor India' in one of his comments. It was definitely not a good look for the company. But a lot of people misunderstood the company name and started uninstalling 'Snapdeal' instead of Snapchat. 4. Boycott Microsoft ExcelSimilarly, an outrage over anti-Hindu detergent ad found a new target in Microsft Excel. Instead of raging against Surf Excel, people weirdly started uninstalling Microsoft Excel app from their phones. The same trended on Twitter too. View the full article
  5. Bollywood actors have time and again surprised us with their brilliant acting skills but it's not just acting that make them so well-established in the industry. These actors are multi-talented and have proven their prowess in a lot of other fields for example direction, production and in some cases, even writing a film as well. Here's a list of actors who actually turned scriptwriters for movies and showed us that talent has no bounds. 1. The Girl In Yellow Boots By Kalki KoechlinA movie that was highly acclaimed in Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, Kalki had turned scriptwriter for That Girl In Yellow Boots. Even though the movie failed to strike a chord with the audience, her dexterity with acting was highly lauded. 2. Satte Pe Satta By Kader KhanKnown for his exemplary comedy back in the 90s, Kader Khan had not just tickled our funny bone but also had a hidden talent of writing good scripts. He penned down the storyline, not for one but many movies that include Coolie, Toofan, Agneepath, Yaarana, Mahguru and a few others. 3. Ghayal Once Again By Sunny DeolSunny Deol's Ghayal was a massive success in 1990 but the actor came back with another hit Ghayal Once Again, where he wasn't just an actor or the director of the film but he also indulged himself into writing the whole plot with the help of other writers for the movie. That's what we call multi-talented! 4. Mukkabaaz by Vineet Kumar SinghActor Vineet Kumar Singh impressed us with his stellar acting in Ugly and Gangs Of Wasseypur. But he didn't limit his skills to just that and took to writing for Anurag Kashyap's movie, Mukkabaaz. He was also the lead actor and this sports action movie was quite well-received. 5. Shahenshah By Jaya BachchanNot many people know this but Shahenshah was the reason why Amitabh Bachchan's career soared high and it got back the lost fame, courtesy his wife Jaya Bachchan, who was the scriptwriter for Shahenshah. The screenplay though was later done by Inder Raj Anand. 6. Love Per Square Foot By Sumeet Vyas Owing to his popularity with TVF's Permanent Roommates, Sumeet Vyas has now become a well-known face even in Bollywood. Besides his comic riffs in the series, the actor has time and again shown a keen interest in writing. He actually went ahead and penned down season 2 of TVF Tripling. Not just that, he has also co-written Vicky Kaushal's movie called Love Per Square Foot which was launched on a digital platform. View the full article
  6. Windows Phones are no longer available to buy now, but there was a time when these phones were huge. People went crazy for these phones because of the whole idea of being able to enjoy Microsoft's Windows OS on a phone. Sadly, we can't get our hands on a new one right now, but we still have a special place for those phones. There were a lot of things we loved about the Windows and here's a quick look at some of them: 1. Live Tiles © Microsoft A lot of people hated Live Tiles, but that's also one of the reasons why others wanted to own Windows phone. The beauty of Star Screen is that the Live Tiles can be resized and moved around to suit your own needs. You could change the aesthetics and make it look however you want. 2. PerformanceIf you've ever used a Windows Phone, then you'll know exactly what this means. The software was so well-optimized that these phones used to be snappy. We're talking smooth animations with solid frame rates even on the lower end models. You'd hardly notice any stutters or lags while using them. Impressive performance indeed and it was a joy to use them. 3. Action Center © Reuters Windows had something called the 'Action Center' where all your recent notifications would sit. It also had a row of customizable settings shortcuts at the top to provide quick access to useful features like switching to Wi-Fi, adjusting screen brightness and more. It's similar to how we have the drop-down notification centre on Android phones now, but it was a breath of fresh air back in the day. 4. CortanaBelieve it or not, Cortana was actually a lot of fun to use back then. Of course, we're also talking about a time when the Google Assistant was exactly as powerful as it is today, but still. Cortana was able to monitor particular topics for you and suggest content that's worth checking out. All this was way ahead of the time for Windows Phone users. We probably won't be able to use a Windows Phone as a daily driver today without proper updates. That being said, we miss these phones a lot. Picking one of them up and using it even for a while now makes us want to go back and use a Windows Phone. View the full article
  7. Making it big in the Bollywood industry and sustaining the success are two different things. It takes a while to resonate with the audience but in some cases, despite trying everything, it is merely impossible to catch everyone's attention, after all, it is all about making an impact, right? Be it for the star kids or the new entrants, unfortunately, success is a long call and more often than not, these celebrities just disappear from the big screen. Here's a list of actors who moved away from the limelight and this is what they are up to right now. 1. Uday Chopra © Twitter/UdayFC Uday Chopra is the son of the well-known filmmaker, Yash Chopra, who made his debut with Mohabbatein. But this actor's career graph was only declining and movies like Neal n Nikki, Pyaar Impossible etc all tanked at the box office. He was last seen in the third instalment of Dhoom. The actor, after all the struggle finally moved into the international arm of Yash Raj Films banner. 2. Vatsal Seth © Youtube/Bollywoodhungama Vatsal Seth's face is a reminder that Taarzan: The Wonder Car would not be the same if it wasn't for him. The actor is also remembered for the character of Jai from Just Mohabbat Show. But after being away from the limelight in B-town, the actor bagged a lot of television shows where he was able to prove his prowess. Recently, though. he was last seen in Malang where he did a cameo. 3. Rajat Barmecha © MXP Player After doing a great film like Udaan, it was expected that we will get to see more of Rajat Barmecha, who also won the Best Male Debut award.

The talented actor was last involved in a series named Hey Prabhu. 4. Kumar Gaurav © Pinterest Kumar Gaurav gave his debut in Bollywood with Love Story but after a string of flop movies, the actor failed to make a mark in the industry. Since his career graph was only declining, the actor resorted to working on television along with some dubbing roles. At the moment, he is into travel and construction business. 5. Giselle Monterio © Youtube/Filmytoday The Brazillian model, Giselle Monterio had a mind-blowing start in Bollywood with Imitiaz's film, Love Aaj Kal. Post that, she was also a part of Always Kabhi Kabhi but she has been under the radar since then. Turns out, she had to quit Bollywood so that she could pursue architecture from the University of Vila Velha, Brazil and as per reports, the actress has no plans of coming back to the industry. 6. Fardeen Khan © Twitter/Fardeen Khan FC Fardeen Khan was touted to be the big thing in the Bollywood industry but unfortunately, due to back to back flops like Khushi, Dev etc, the actor failed to grab good scripts.

Sikander Kher © Twitter/Sikander Kher For the unversed, Sikander Kher is Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher's son.

Adhyayan Suman © Twitter/AdhyayanSuman Adhyayan Suman is the son of Shekhar Suman, who also made an entry in Bollywood but none of the movies he did were able to make his mark in the industry.

  8. The Bigg Boss house is a place wherein we will see some contestants fighting and some of them turning into best friends. But, as soon as the housemates get out of the house and step into the real-life dynamics between the celebrities totally change. From ugly fights to announcing that they are in love on national television, the Bigg Boss contestants have done it all. So, here is a list of contestants who stopped talking to each other after getting out of the show and their friendships only lasted till the finale: 1.

She applied chilli powder on his face and eventually she was successful in forcing him to leave the seat during the task given by Bigg Boss. After a point, Gautam couldnât take it anymore and abused Karishma in front of the whole house which led to turning everyone against him. 5. Tanishaa Mukerji and Gauahar Khan View the full article
  9. The Bollywood industry, like any other industry, has its own merits and demerits. Full of glitz and glamour, it never ceases to attract people from far off places. Hundreds and thousands of people, every year, come to Mumbai to get into this dream industry but not everyone succeeds. Sometimes all you need is a little luck to get recognised by someone who can see your true talent. Here is a list of such actors who were really lucky and got spotted by people in the industry before they made it this big in the glitz-town. 1. Kangana RanautNow known as Bollywood's "Queen", Kangana Ranaut was first spotted by director Anurag Basu at a coffee shop in Aamchi Mumbai. He instantly liked her and offered her a role in the movie Gangster, in which she made her debut. The movie then went on to become a super hit and people totally loved her acting. Besides, she was even awarded a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for this movie. © Reuters 2. Arjun RampalIf you want to be spotted by someone from the industry, you should start frequenting discotheques. No, we arenât kidding. Actor Arjun Rampal was first spotted by Rohit Bal, ace fashion designer, at a discotheque. He suggested Arjun to try modelling because of his sharp features and well-built body and the rest is history. Going forward, the 47-year-old actor was awarded the National and Filmfare award for the best supporting actor for the movie Rock On. He is currently in a relationship with South African model Gabriella Demetriades. © rampal72/Instagram 3. Akshay KumarHereâs a perfect example of how one needs both hard work and also little luck to succeed in life. Akshay Kumar is reigning in the industry today with back to back hits. But do you know how he started out? Originally called Rajiv Bhatia, he started out as a waiter and then as a cook in Bangkok. After returning back to India, he started teaching martial arts, and also had a flair for photography. One of his photographer friends suggested he try modelling and he did. Later when he approached film studios, he got his first film the same day. He made his debut with a minor role in the 1987 Mahesh Bhatt directed Indian film Aaj. Then he appeared as the lead actor in Saugandh in 1991 before making his breakthrough with the suspense thriller Khiladi in 1992. © akshaykumar/Instagram 4. Bhumi PednekarThis 30-year-old actor stands out in the industry for bravely experimenting with her roles. Before starting out to act, she was working as an assistant to Shaanoo Sharma (the casting director) at Yash Raj Films for more than six years. However, she did give auditions many times but was rejected. But one day, out of sheer luck, her audition video landed at Aditya Chopraâs desk and he signed her for her debut film Dum Laga ke Haisha to play an overweight bride, after which she got immensely famous. The rest, as they say, is history. © Instagram 5. JeetendraAn actor, TV and film producer as chairman of the Balaji Telefilms, Balaji Motion Pictures and ALT Entertainment, yesteryear actor Jeetendra has given more than 100 hits since the 1960s. However, his back story of how he got into this industry is interesting. His family was into the business of imitation jewellery without any Bollywood background. One day, he went to supply some pieces of jewellery to V Shantaram, an Indian filmmaker, and he immediately liked him and cast him as actor Sandhyaâs body double in the movie Navrang. This was his screen debut. From then on, he went on to become Bollywoodâs superstar. © Ekta Kapoor/Twitter Even though some of these B-town actors made it into the industry through luck, it's with their sheer hard work, determination and passion for acting that has made them superstars of the industry. The takeaway is that it has never been a cakewalk for them, and with utmost dedication, anyone can become a star in their respective fields. However, it's also true that you have to be in the right place at the right time to get things working for you, as sometimes it is a matter of chance. View the full article
  10. The pandemic has made the privileged generous and a lot of people have come forward to help the needy. While all of us continue to stay in lockdown, our brave cops brave the virus and the heat as they guard the country ensuring we stay safe. These real heroes also need some protection and relief from whatever is going on in the world. As a gesture of gratitude, the Producers Guild of India has decided to donate fully equipped tents and Bollywood starâs vanity vans to the police personnel. The name of the initiative is âMission Surakshaâ. © BCCL The vanity vans will be provided to the female cops and will be available across 22 locations in Mumbai to make things easier for our police force in the scorching heat. A statement released by the Guild says, "We are delighted to launch ''Mission Suraksha'' to protect our caretakers, especially women cops on âbandobastâ duty. Fully equipped tents and vanity vans used by cine stars have been provided across 22 key locations as restrooms for break-time.â Recently, many Bollywood stars took to their social media to express how grateful they were to the Mumbai Police for their efforts amid the on-going lockdown. This move can turn out to be wonderful for our female cops who can take a break from duty and rest in these vanity vans. © BCCL After all, what are we without them? The frontline workers are the real warriors during the lockdown. Even before the lockdown was announced the Guild had announced a relief fund for the daily wage earners so that it becomes easier for them to sustain the Coronavirus outbreak. Reportedly, they helped the daily wage earners of the film fraternity by direct bank transfers into their accounts. © YouTube The Coronavirus has crossed the 15000 mark in India, so far and the virus has claimed around 480 lives. The death toll is dismally increasing and it calls for people to come forward and help the ones in need. View the full article
  11. Amid the nationwide lockdown owing to the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus, which came into effect from March 25 and now extended till May 3, all passenger train services and domestic and international flights have been suspended. However, as per the recent developments, two special trains are scheduled to run on April 17 and 18 for the Indian Army personnel. According to a news report in HT, citing national security reasons, the central government has given permission for the running of two special trains to be deployed for the Indian Army personnel, according to officials aware of the development. The Ministry of Home Affairs has given its nod for the running of two special trains for security forces, the officials said. âThe MHA authorities have given their nod for deploying two special trains for security forces,â HT quoted a senior official on request of anonymity. This initiative to run two military special trains is in a bid to meet the operational requirements for Northern and Eastern borders. âThese are, Bangalore - Belgaum- Secunderabad - Ambala- Jammu on April 17, and Bangalore - Belgaum- Secunderabad - Gopalpur - Howrah - NJP - Guwahati on April 18,â the official said. âThis will enable decongestion of Category A and B training establishments at Bangalore, Belgaum, Secundrabad & Gopalpur as well assist in op preparedness of active formations deployed in the borders.

  12. Twitter is a unique world on its own. The microblogging platform is a melting pot where the worldâs greatest and its most commonplace individuals can get a chance to share and interact. But whatâs also true is the fact that much like most social media platforms, Twitter too is often misused by people. Individuals overstep their sense of liberty and entitlement to plague and hurt others, and for the same reason Twitter has the provision of suspending accounts. Be it temporary or permanent, Twitter account suspensions, especially those of famous people, create a lot of buzz and for obvious reasons. Just like in the case of these 5 famous personalities whose Twitter accounts were suspended and the reasons seem good enough. Well, mostly: 1. Rangoli Chandel © Instagram Kangana Ranautâs dear sister, spokesperson and personal cheerleader Rangoli Chandel is the most recent celebrity whose account was suspended by Twitter for violating its community guidelines by hurting peopleâs personal and religious sentiments through her tweets. Reportedly, following the attack on police and health workers amid the coronavirus outbreak in India, Rangoli tweeted saying, âA Jamati died of Corona when police and doctors went to check their families they were attacked and killed, secular media, make these mullahs + secular media stand in a line and shoot them dead...f****k the history they may call us nazis who cares, life is more imp than fake image (sic).â Well, weâd say she had it coming for a long time. 2. PewDiePie © Instagram The famous Swedish YouTuberâs Twitter account was suspended temporarily back in 2016 for reportedly for pretending to be a member of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), otherwise known as the IS. Yes, it was all a joke and his stupid attempt at playing along with a piece of fake news doing the rounds on Twitter following his decision to un-verify himself on the social media platform. Itâs obvious that not every joke is funny. 3. Abhijeet Bhattacharya © Twitter Once-popular Bollywood singer Abhijeet has turned pretty weird over the years. He has often been caught publicly putting out offensive comments and crass remarks. Well, in 2017 this became the reason why his Twitter account was suspended. Abhijeet had posted a series of offensive tweets against JNU student-activist Shehla Rashid after she tweeted against BJP. His tweets were condemned and reported, finally resulting in the suspension of his account temporarily. 4. Donald Trump © Reuters In November 2017, US President Donald Trumpâs official Twitter account was deactivated by an outgoing Twitter employee on his last day of work at the microblogging company. The deactivation lasted for 11 minutes before it was identified and restored. Twitter made a statement saying the suspension happened âdue to human error by a Twitter employeeâ. Many Twitter users lauded the unnamed person for doing the deed. 5. Kamaal Rashid Khan © BCCL In the same year of 2017, (in)famous personality KRKâs Twitter account was also suspended. The self-proclaimed âbestâ film criticâs account was suspended after he revealed the climax of Advait Chandanâs Secret Superstar in his tweets. Thatâs not all, he even criticized the movie on Twitter and made personal attacks on Aamir Khan. Reportedly, KRK said that he planned to take legal action against Twitter and later created a new account. View the full article
  13. Nature has mysterious ways to heal itself. In fact, the current situation has proved to us that nature can flourish well without any human intervention. Of late, owing to the current nationwide lockdown, there have been several instances of animals and birds reclaiming the land and the sea while we are confined to our houses. Hereâs another such heart-warming instance from Mumbai that is doing the rounds on the internet. Recently, hundreds and thousands of pink flamingos flooded the water body near Navi Mumbai and put up quite a show for the residents of Seawoods Complex in Nerul. Undoubtedly, they were a treat to the eyes! Mysterious ways of Nature? Mumbai backwaters, as seen from Seawoods Complex in Nerul. Every year 100s of pink flamingos migrate to this spot. But this year, numbers are truly spectacular. Itâs mystery, sitting 1000s of miles away, how did flamingos come to know about the change? pic.twitter.com/SZiVSH49j0 â Harinder S Sikka (@sikka_harinder) April 16, 2020 The video shows how these pink feathered creatures have migrated to this lake in huge numbers due to a decrease in human activity. People on social media were ecstatic about these pink flamingos flocking together in Mumbai. Here, check out some of the reactions: @sardesairajdeep the snaps of the Flamingo 𦩠as you have shared the video which is Navi Mumbai Palm Beach Road Wetlands.

  14. 2020 truly marks the end of an era. Among other things, this is the year when we see two of the most iconic car manufacturers shut their operations in India. Both Mitsubishi and Fiat are bowing out of the fiercely competitive automotive market that India is. Even though both of these car manufacturers are engineering and commercial powerhouses when it comes to cars, the uncertainty and paradoxical nature of the Indian automotive market has dealt the final blow to these manufacturers. © Fiat This is the year when all new cars that will start plying on Indian roads have to comply with BS-VI. Both, Fiat's as well as Mitsubishi's automotive departments had been ailing with slipping sales and the churn that the Indian automobile industry was going through. © iStock Both of these manufacturers have given us some of the most iconic, and aspirational cars for the petrolheads of this generation. The Premier Padmini, or Fiat Premiere as it was also known, taught us how great and cool cars could be, in the 1960s. The Mitsubishi Pajero was instrumental in developing the notion that off-roading cars could be luxurious and fairly affordable. © Wiki Commons Here are five cars, from both of these manufacturers that proved to be iconic for the Indian petrolhead. Mitsubishi Lancer © Wiki Commons We have to start with the Mitsubishi Lancer, simply because of how iconic the car was. In India, you could only get your hands on the top variant, which came with that iconic spoiler. Furthermore, you could only get your hands on one if you were really well off, and had some really good connections. Depending on the year you bought the car, you would get a slightly different front grill; although we loved how understated the car was, some of the styling aspects were ahead of its time. As for the performance, it does look dated today, but for the early 2000s, this was a rocket ship on wheels. Fiat Punto Evo © Fiat There were a number of variants of the Punto that we got to see over the years. Be it the first, original, unadulterated one, or the most recent one, the Avventura, all of them were actually good cars. However, the Evo was a little bit special. It had marginally better handling than the closest competitor, it certainly was a thing to behold. For city roads, it was the perfect car - light, nimble and quick to accelerate. On the highways, it was stable at high speeds and powerful enough for some spirited driving. The only reason it did not sell that well, because of its pricing, and the fact that by the time it was launched, Fiat was already in a downward economic spiral. Mitsubishi Pajero © Mitsubishi There was no way this one did not make it to the list. Simply put, this was the most iconic car from the bunch. There was no mountain high enough, neither a valley deep enough that the Pajero couldn't drive over if it was paired with a skilful driver. Although the refreshed version did not impress even the most ardent fans of the Pajero, people will still recall this one, when asked about the most iconic SUV that was seen on Indian roads. Fiat Abarth 595 © Fiat The Abarth 595 was limited to a very few numbers in India and for good reasons. At almost Rs 30 Lakhs a piece, this was by no means a car that made fiscal sense. However, from purely a driver's and an enthusiast's perspective, this was a bargain. You would get a sportscar like performance and handling, in the size of a small hatchback and the price of a luxury sedan. The Abarth 595 was powerful, nimble, and could accelerate like a stabbed rabbit. This was a car that India was simply not ready for. Fiat Linea © Fiat The Linea was an unlucky car in a number of ways. It was sporty enough, handled well, was spacious and well equipped, and in its segment, was one of the most luxurious offerings. However, it was way more expensive than it should have been, and because of Fiat's issues with after-sales services, the car never really got the chance it deserved. Although Mitsubishi is completely out of the automotive market in India for now, Fiat's parent company, FCA, or Fiat Chrysler Automobiles India will continue to operate and will continue with the Jeep brand of cars.

  15. There's so much going on in the world right now - a pandemic, basically the entire world under lockdown, all of us trying to work and survive while the anxiety of being part of a historical event is trying to take over us. In short, it's been a shitty year so far. So sometimes, it's nice to take a break and watch something very calming and aesthetically pleasing so that we can take our minds away from stuff, even if for a little while. Here comes in Studio Ghibli and their wholesome movies. The Japanese animation studio has some of the best movies that will make you feel like you're part of that universe. Here are some of our top picks that can be streamed online right now. 1. Howl's Moving Castle Based in a fictional kingdom where both magic and early 20th-century technology are prevalent with a backdrop of a war with another kingdom, the movie has a very strong anti-war message. Actually, the director - Hayao Miyazaki - made the movie after being outraged about the United States' invasion of Iraq in 2003. There are witches, there's a magical curse, there's a freaking castle that walks, and a talking fire. And, the English dubbed version has Christian Bale voicing the character of Howl. 2. Spirited Away The Oscar-winning movie is about a 10-year-old girl who, while moving to a new neighbourhood, ends up trapped in a world of spirits where her parents have been turned into pigs to be slaughtered later. Now, she has to work for the witch Yubaba and find a way to free herself and her parents and return to the human world. Even though it released in 2001, it is, to this date, the highest-grossing movie in Japan. 3. My Neighbor Totoro The 1988 movie was not only a hit back then but has also garnered a cult following in the years following its release. The movie is about two sisters and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan. The movie's titular character of Totoro has become a cultural icon over the years, and it's even the Studio's mascot. 4. Kiki's Delivery Service The 1989 movie is basically about a 13 years old girl named Kiki, who happens to be a witch and follows the journey of her leaving home for her independence with her pet black cat Jiji. She uses her ability to fly to her advantage and earn a living. The movie came out a year after My Neighbor Totoro and is much loved by the Japanese as well as the international audience to this day. 5. Princess Mononoke Set centuries ago in a Japan where fantasy elements exist, the movie follows a young Prince Ashitaka, who's stuck in a struggle between the gods of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. The movie was released back in 1997 but is still one of the most famous movies by Studio Ghibli. View the full article
  16. If you have seen John Cenaâs off-stage interviews and when he is not performing as a WWE superstar, you would know that the man leads his life based on the rules and principles that he had created for himself. Itâs his set of principles that got him to this point of stardom and success. His workout routine, his diet, his commitment to being in his best physique, no matter how busy his schedule maybe, everything seems to look like words engraved in stone. © Reuters However, it becomes unreasonable for Cena to expect such dedication and strictness from someone else who hasnât lived a similar life as the leader of âCenationâ himself and it becomes that much more difficult for that other person to live freely, when theyâre supposed to spend the rest of their life with him. Here are 5 bizarre rules that John Cena used to make Nikki Bella follow when they were in a relationship: 1. Dress To Dine Growing up, Cena did not have a lot to be thankful for but now that he could afford the finer things in life, he wanted to appreciate it completely. One of the main ways to do so was to dress formally when it was dinner time. Suits for men, gowns or dresses for the ladies and a formal dinner once every week. Cena did it and expected everyone in his house, even Nikki to do it. 2. Stretching For An Enormous Period of Time There may be a reason behind the longevity of John Cenaâs extremely successful career, his insanely long stretching sessions before starting with the cardio or hitting the weight room, sometimes even an hour. He expected similar dedication from Nikki. 3. No Sharing Of Assets John Cena made it certain that the two people in the relationship werenât going to share assets. Even though it may sound a bit too harsh at first, the reason why Cena did this was because he had a mother and a younger brother who needed special medical care and he wanted to be able to be there for them both in spirit and financially if things didnât work out. 4. Different Sets Of Dirty Clothes You know how we donât care about sweaty gym clothes as opposed to the everyday clothes that are dirty? Well, not for Cena. He maintains two separate laundry buckets for clothes that need to be washed and when Nikki Bella once returned from the gym, he gave her a proper lesson for the same. 5. A 75-Page Contract Even before Nikki was to move into la casa de Cena he made her sign a 75-page long contract. In an interview with the daily live broadcast show Today, Cena agreed to being wrong about this move as well: â I was very abrasive and stern and she had to sign this huge, crazy agreement to come in the front door.â View the full article
  17. People often like to say that it doesnât take much to become an actor these days. Of course, not all of it is fair when they say itâs a matter of good looks, decent acting skills, admirable dancing calibre or a just great âlegacyâ to put someone up there for the world to see on the silver screen. We all know of some great talent that Bollywood has discovered over the years. Actors who have succeeded solely based on their talent and hard work. And as if that is not enough, many of them have proved themselves twice over by not only becoming popular Bollywood actors but also published authors who have distinct titles to their name. Check out these 7 Bollywood actors who have written books too: 1. Emraan Hashmi © Instagram Following his son Ayaanâs successful fight against cancer, Emraan penned The Kiss Of Life which talks about his journey and the struggles his family faced while Ayaan went through the ordeal. The book is also aimed towards helping others who have family members fighting against cancer. 2. Nawazuddin Siddiqui © BCCL The very talented method actor co-authored An Ordinary Life with Rituparna Chatterjee which was published in 2017. The autobiography traces Nawazuddinâs journey as a struggling actor from UPâs Budhana and how he moved from doing theatre to big-banner Bollywood films over the years. 3. Naseeruddin Shah © Twitter Naseeruddin Shah wrote his own memoir titled And Then One Day which takes the readers through his early years as a Meerut-born, catholic-taught, leading theatre persona who made a mark for himself as an actor in Bollywood. 4. Ayushmann Khurrana © Instagram/Isha Bhansal A 2015 publication, Cracking The Code was co-authored by Ayushmann with his wife, director Tahira Kashyap. The book talks about the making of the Bollywood star through his personal journey in the industry and offers guidance to aspiring actors. 5. Anupam Kher © Pinterest Veteran actor Anupam Kher has written two books so far. Aap Khud Hi Best Hain was his first title which came out in 2011 and is a self-help book that helps readers find inner happiness and change their life. His second book is called Lessons Life Taught Me, Unknowingly which is the actorâs honest-to-god autobiography. 6. Pankaj Kapur © Twitter Theatre stalwart Pankaj Kapurâs Dopehri was first written in 1992 as a one-act play which earned him a lot of critical acclaim and was much appreciated by the audience. It was finally published in 2019 as a novella by Harper Collins. 7. Rishi Kapoor © Twitter The outspoken yesteryear Bollywood star penned his autobiography Khullam Khulla which came out in 2017. The memoir is every bit like Kapoor himself with tons of unapologetic spilling of beans. BONUS: Not many of us know this, but superstar Shah Rukh Khanâs own memoir titled Twenty Years In A Decade has been in the pipeline for some time now and reportedly, SRK is writing the book to help his daughter Suhana learn from his experiences ahead of her Bollywood debut.

  18. With the COVID-19 quarantine by and large in effect for the foreseeable future now, things will be going haywire. The pressure to work from home and stay productive, the constant bickering of siblings and family members, and the manner in which we feel trapped in our own houses, is surely going to get on our nerves. © iStock It is very easy under such circumstances to panic and actually lose sight of things that are actually important. Taking proper care of yourself is one such thing. Now, you may be washing your hands every now and then, and cleaning your hands with some really good hand sanitizers which ultimately, are actually quite harsh on your skin. We recommend you follow what this dermatologist says about taking care of your hands that have gone dry from constant washing. © iStock But what about your face? How do you take care of your skin when youâre under quarantine, and supposedly safe from all the external factors that normally cause havoc on your skin. Well, when youâre under quarantine, you need a skincare routine even more, simply because you lose track of things at times. Also, do you really want to take risks right now? © iStock Here are six super easy steps that can actually prove to be quite effective and useful for your skin, especially when youâre under quarantine. Inculcate A Sleeping Routine © iStock First and foremost, inculcate a proper sleeping routine and follow it. Since youâll be spending possibly the entire day at home, you may get complacent and do things lazily. Especially on the days when youâre working from home. Instead of staying up late at night, binge-watching your favourite shows, stick to a proper sleeping routine, wherein you get at least eight hours of sleep. Now, thanks to the quarantine, you actually donât have an excuse not to sleep for eight hours or more if needed. Wash Your Face At Least Twice A Day © iStock Given that you have to wash your hands quite a few times throughout the day, it would behove you if you wash your face as well. Wash your face at least twice a day, with a face wash that suits your skin type. Also, go for something that is friendly for the environment and also on your skin, otherwise, you risk drying up your skin, which will make it all itchy and sensitive. Moisturise Thoroughly © iStock Pick a moisturiser that suits your skin, and make sure you actually use it thoroughly. Even though you might think that there is no need to moisturise your face regularly because youâre always indoors anyway, you actually should be moisturising your face, on a regular basis. Given you will have to wash your face regularly, do not skip on moisturising. Avoid Touching Your Face Unnecessarily © iStock Your hands touch all sorts of surfaces and things through the day. God knows what all germs and pathogens they pick up. Health experts, medical professionals and even the WHO suggests keeping your hands away from your face. Unless it is imperative and an unavoidable circumstance, avoid touching your face. If just have to touch your face, to adjust your spectacles, or to itch or something, rub your hands with some hand sanitiser first. Exfoliate At Least Once A Week © iStock This is actually somewhat a leisurely activity, but again, something that you should go for often. Exfoliate your skin using a slightly coarse cleansing agent. We suggest you go for something like multani clay, or some other form of clay. That not only helps your skin in maintaining its pH balance, but also gives it a thorough and deep cleansing. Stay Hydrated © iStock Finally, and this is the most important thing that you can do, keep yourself hydrated properly. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day, even though you may not feel thirsty that often. To take things to the next level, use a face mist, or some micellar water. View the full article
  19. With the gyms closed, training camps being postponed and the uncertainty of the 2020 edition of the summer Olympics looming due to the Coronavirus, athletes from all over the world are disheartened and morally discharged right now. A couple of days ago, we got in touch with 2016 Rio Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi Malik who opened up about the kind of mental impact COVID-19 is having on the hopefuls and why more people need to talk about it. © Reuters Today, we approached some of the other leading sportspersons, who were looking forward to representing their country at the biggest sporting event in the world and hustle to win the honour of getting an Olympic medal placed around their neck. Captain of the Indian hockey team, Manpreet Singh and ace shuttler Ashwini Ponnappa share their thoughts on the contagious virus which has led to the global sports apocalypse and how it is that the Olympic aspirants are preparing for the upcoming event. © Twitter âWe're all very much aware of the current situation, but the important thing for us is to concentrate on what's to be done right. We've all been briefed by doctors and our support staff in the best way possible, and currently, we're in the middle of our training camp, where we are undergoing training as usual,â says Manpreet Singh. âBeing an important phase in our preparations for the Olympics, we are not looking at the things which are not in our control, the only thing that is in our control is to train well, and make sure we're following all the instructions," he added. Former World Rank 10 in Womenâs Double, Ashwini Ponnappa says: âThe COVID-19 has definitely thrown everything off track. The first focus would be to stay healthy and be safe during this period.â © Twitter âAs weâve travelled so much, I am not going out and mostly sticking to staying at home. In this day and age doing fitness at home to stay fit is possible. So definitely, [it is] going to be doing exercises with loop bands and therabands and racket drills at home to stay fit and work on some finger power until we can get back on court,â she adds. We also got to hear from Rushdee Warley, CEO- Inspire Institute of Sport, where many Indian Olympic hopefuls had practised and have been practising for the Tokyo edition. Hereâs what he said: âThe facility hasnât been shut down; we are operational with training happening through the day. We are, however, taking strict precautionary measures since all the athletes and staff live in a closed community here in IIS and the neighbouring JSW Vidyanagar township. Update We organised an informative and interactive session on raising awareness about #COVID19 for all our athletes and staff A team of doctors from Jindal Sanjeevani hospital spoke about the precautionary measures that can be taken amidst the pandemic. #CoronaVirusUpdate pic.twitter.com/3wPuH3b4V6 â Inspire Institute of Sport (@IIS_Vijayanagar) March 13, 2020 âThe athletes and staff who were not on campus as of March 13 and were planning to return here, have been advised to stay home. We had a team of doctors from the Jindal Sanjeevani Multi-speciality Hospital come to the institute for an informative session on the COVID-19, raising awareness and precautionary measures for those inside the institute.â âThere are some foreign coaches here currently, they are staying here on campus. A few coaches who were travelling for the past couple of weeks have been advised not to come to the campus until further notice. Two of our foreign staff were away and are currently self-isolating in India away from IIS. They will return to IIS after 14 days and be tested again to ensure that they are negative for COVID-19.â © Twitter/IIS âAll the athletes present here right now are training as per their schedule. We are meeting with the concerned authorities periodically to decide on a further course of action.â Every day, more and more people are being tested positive for the virus. In India, over 150 positive cases have been reported while Japan, where the 2020 Olympics were scheduled to be held, has reported over 880 cases. While the qualifying rounds of different sports from all over the world are being cancelled or postponed indefinitely, the mega-tournament, which is no more than four months away, doesnât look to be in good shape.

  20. OPPO announced its very first smartwatch yesterday and if youâve seen any pictures online, you know it looks almost identical to the Apple Watch. The Oppo Watch instantly reminded me of the âcopy homework memeâ. The design language of the OPPO Watch largely remains the same with a few minor changes to avoid getting sued by Apple. Some people may say it looks promising, but before everyone gets delusional, it must be highlighted that the smartwatch is mostly unimaginative. © Oppo It has a similar square watch face and curved edges as the Apple Watch Series 4 and 5. Hell, even the strap looks identical to the ones that come in the box with the Apple Watch. Subtle changes include two buttons on the right side of the device while Apple Watch has one button and a digital crown. It has a 46mm chassis and a 402 x 473 1.91-inch OLED screen, a heart rate sensor, water-resistance up to 50 meters, eSiM support and fitness tracking. The only original feature on the Oppo Watch we can think of is its support for VOOC fast charging. It can be charged to 45 percent in 15 minutes and can last 40 hours on a single charge. © Apple,OPPO But Oppo copying Appleâs homework just doesnât stop at the design of the smartwatch. Even the way it was presented including the presentation slides take a cue from Appleâs event last year. It seems like Oppo is trying really hard to sell a smartwatch for Android users that actually looks like an Apple Watch. Having no identity of its own, the Oppo Watch already has negative points in our books and we are not entirely sure who would want to wear an Apple Watch copy in public. © Oppo Oppo says the watch will run a version of ColorOS that will work in tandem with Oppo phones and will not use Googleâs WearOS. Oppo also says that the software will be a bit different for international markets. It would be interesting to see how Oppo has implemented software features on the smartwatch. What makes the Apple Watch great is its software integration with the iPhone and features that work out of the box. While Oppo promises similar functionalities, we can only be sure how it works once we get to test it for ourselves. The one thing that works in favour of the Oppo Watch is the price of the smartwatch. It will be available for 1,499 Yuan which is around Rs 16,000; which is considerably lower than the Apple Watch. It seems like a reasonable price for everything you will be getting for the Oppo Watch, but we can only know once we use the watch ourselves. View the full article
  21. We have often seen Rajkummar Rao wearing some really interesting footwear. From a pair of sneakers that looked like they were legit space boots, to one of the classiest pairs of high top boots, clearly, when it comes to shoes, the man doesnât mess about. One can always count on him to lay down some serious footwear goals, whether it is a zany pair of sneaker that youâre looking for, or for something else. © Instagram/rajkummar_rao Well, Rajkummar, it seems to have outdone his own zany footwear choices, by wearing one of quirkiest pairs of sneakers we have seen. What makes his sneakers quirky, you ask? Well, they come with their own jewellery and embellishments. © Viral Bhayani But first, letâs get to his outfit. Rajkummar is wearing a seemingly basic t-shirt from Dsquared2. Although the t-shirt may seem basic, it actually has a few nifty touches here and there that make it a little quirky. The shoulders, for example, are very subtly distressed. The rest of the torso as well has those distress marks. Just to get an idea of how exquisite the t-shirt exactly is, consider this - they are listed for about $145 or just under Rs 11,000. Yup; Rs 11,000 for a t-shirt. © Viral Bhayani The denims too are quirky. They are ripped from the knees and have a very aggressive wash. On top of the aggressive wash, they also have a very light bleaching as well. The denim jeans do look good on Rajkummar, we must say. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the highlight of the ensemble, the sneakers that Rajkummar is wearing. They are the #54 LV Trainer Sneakers from the Paris based luxury retailers, Louis Vuitton. The sneakers are based on your run of the mill, vintage baseball sneakers, and have a flat construction. © Louis Vuitton As far as the materials and construction is concerned, the Virgil Abloh designed piece ticks all the boxes that come with high fashion item - exquisite materials all around, a rich heritage to call back one, and the name of a designer that has a cult following. © Hypebeast So exquisite are the pieces, that they have embellishments of their own. Around the heel of the outsole, youâll see three micro-inserts, that add a very distinct characteristic to the sneakers. © Louis Vuitton Such an exquisite pair of sneakers will surely be expensive. Just how expensive, you ask? Well, they are listed for $1,200, or just under Rs 90,000. Add to that your regular set of import duties and customs, and youâre looking at a figure thatâs well over Rs 1.20 Lakhs. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar surely does know how to pick some really exquisite sneakers, doesnât he?

  22. We remember Zayed Khan from movies like Dus, Love Breakups Zindagi and more importantly Main Hoon Na along with fellow actor Shah Rukh Khan. All these movies can easily make any 90s kid nostalgic, in fact, this only makes us wonder why Zayed Khan stopped coming in films. Recently, Zayed Khan was spotted with Hrithik Roshan in what seemed like a coordinated outfit. Take a look here: © Manav Manglani Both of them are seen in casual airport looks. Both of them are also wearing a pair of shades and a cap each that makes it appear like this was indeed a pre-planned look. Despite the fact that their outfits do not entirely match, Zayed Khan is wearing a pair of jeans and a t-shirt and Hrithik Roshan is wearing a t-shirt with a jacket layered on top along with a pair of track pants below, their looks still appear to be pretty damn similar. In fact, it does look like they are twinning with their outfits. This also reminds us of Shahrukh Khan and Zayed Khan together in Main Hoon Na. In the film, post the initial rift between the two characters who were also brothers, they started bonding which also started reflecting through their outfits. © Red Chillies Entertainment In fact, Hrithik Roshan is a fan of Zayed Khan's performances. For one of the Filmfare awards, he performed to Zayed Khan's song from Dus. Here's a look at that: With the current wave of Bollywood sequels and remakes, if Main Hoon Na were to get a sequel or even a remake for that matter, we definitely would be invested in a film with Hrithik Roshan and Zayed Khan, considering how well the two gel together when it comes to their fashion choices. They would make for the perfect set of separated brothers who are already setting fashion goals for us. View the full article
  23. Leave it up to Shahid Kapoor and he will show you some zany ways to elevate your sartorial statement with a pair of sneakers. Every pair from his sneaker collection has an extravagant element to it. Sometimes they are overly chunky or he wears sneakers that look like a failed science experiment. With so many stylish instances, it is established that he is a true sneaker god. © Lyst At the moment, oversized silhouettes with a quirky message are in rage. Shahid's powder blue hoodie says 'There's No Future For You' at the back. This hood is by Haculla and it features a hood with drawstring fastening and kangaroo pockets. Furthermore, this versatile style also has a distressed finish and a loose fit. While this hoodie looks super relaxed, his bouncy, oversized sneakers, on the other hand, took his overall debonair a notch higher. Take a look: © Lyst He is wearing Valentino Garavani's Bounce Lace-up Sneakers. This pair has a disruptive design and the bulky style with a tonal mesh upper and suede overlays are further accentuated with electric blue, preinstalled in-sock. Additionally, this pair also has a thick rubber outsole and detailed with gold accents that add to the luxe finish. View the full article
  24. Itâs nothing new, but itâs always fascinating - some of our favourite action stars have really pushed the bar in recent years with body transformations that seem to defy the laws of biology. From inspiring fans with straight-up gym-dedication to bringing unconventional workouts in vogue, here are 6 Bollywood actors that packed on some serious muscle - and the secret behind their beefed-up onscreen looks: 1. Hrithik Roshan - War © Instagram After going a bit soft for Super 30, Hrithik followed up with an incredible, well-documented body transformation for his role as rogue ex-RAW agent, Major Kabir, for War. Given just two months to pull it off, the actor went through an extreme zero momentum reps (ZMR) regime, supplemented by band work - all through his mid-forties while nursing his ankle and spine injuries. His secret? âThe most important being writing down each dayâs progress,â revealed Hrithik in an Instagram post. âIâd aim to do one more than yesterday - there is magic in consistency.â 2. Aamir Khan - Dangal © Instagram Similar to Hrithik, Aamirâs amazing fat-to-fit body transformation occurred under less than half a year and saw the actor go from 38% body fat (which he required for 80% of the role), to a hulked out 9.67% and a physique weâd usually expect from WWE superstars. Aamir attributes the success of his workout to his expertly crafted diet - designed by Nikhil Dhurandhar, a professor in nutritional sciences at Texas Tech University in the US. The diet was tailored to take advantage of Aamirâs workout schedule - he would eat a lean 1800 calorie meal plan during days focused on cutting out fat, and pack on the protein with a 2500 calorie plan during days when building muscle was the primary focus. âNo matter how hard you exercise,â says Aamir, âif your diet isnât right, you wonât get the desired results.â 3. Vicky Kaushal - The Immortal Ashwatthama © Instagram Unlike Aamir and Hrithik, however, Uri star Vicky Kaushal is going the path less travelled for his upcoming film, The Immortal Ashwatthama. Playing the son of Dronacharya, a legendary figure from the Mahabharat epic, Kaushal aims to get pretty big for this role. While he weighed around 90 kilograms in Uri, his trainers are helping him get to around 115 kilos for the upcoming role. Whatâs interesting is that Kushalâs route to buffdom isnât just dependant on pumping iron at the gym - in order to keep up with the filmâs action scenes, heâs relying on MMA training, with a focus on Israeli martial art Krav Maga and the Japanese techniques of Jiu-Jitsu. 4. Aditya Roy Kapur - Malang © Instagram Similar to Kaushal, Aditya Roy Kapurâs latest Bollywood outing saw him taking on his most physically demanding role yet in Malang - through an unusual workout routine that saw him dive into yoga, 20-minute runs and even the ancient martial art form from Kerala, Kalaripayattu for his transformation. This was all supplemented by a razor-sharp focus on his diet - which was pushed even further to the limit for key scenes. According to nutrition expert Anmol Singhal, âjust before the body shots (that you see in the trailer), we cut down salt from all his mealsâ7 days prior to the shoot so that there is no water retention in the body (allowing Kapur's muscles and veins to pop on camera).â 5. Tiger Shroff - Baaghi 3 © Instagram True - Iâd much rather see Tiger Shroff work on better scripts than he currently has, but thereâs no denying that the man is in absolute control of his body ever since he burst onto the industry with Heropanti in 2014. This time, heâs preparing for the third film in his Baaghi series - and the routine involves an interesting combination of cardio, weights, bodyweight exercises and to break the monotony - MMA combined with dancing. âWhen you are dancing you are listening to music you like or you are enjoying the choreography,â shared the actor with GQ India. âYou don't come to know how much you have burnt until you are done with your session. I think I lose up to around 1 to 1.5 kg of water weight after dancing.â 6.
