  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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. Vidyut Jamwal - Junglee © Instagram Probably the most popular stunt-focused action star in India right now, Jamwalâs physique isnât just for show - carrying out his stunt choreography and parkour techniques require impeccable coordination, discipline and strength to pull off. While his diet and food habits are as youâd expect, itâs his psychology and single-minded focus in the gym that gets him his results. âFirst they call me obsessed, or obsessive,â he tells Hindustan Times in an interview, âand then the same people will call me for training or diet advice. So this obsession is normally a compliment.â View the full article
  4. Ever since the trailer for Saif Ali Khan starrer Jawaani Jaaneman was dropped, fans were more than excited to see Khan in his good old 'playboy avatar', a role he plays the best on the big screen. The movie also stars Tabu and is the debut of Pooja Bedi's daughter Alaya F. Like always, this time as well, Saif hasnât disappointed his loyal fans as the movie is soaking in positive reviews right now from both the critics and audience. The movie hit the theatres today and the ones who have seen it already are out with their reviews. A majority of the audience is impressed by the cast and are calling the movie an entertaining, hilarious, bold and emotional one, basically a complete entertainer. Here are the reactions: #JawaaniJaanemanReview Winning Hearts. A must watch movie #JawaaniJaaneman Cuckoo :) â Irfan_A_Khan (@Khan_A_Irfan) January 31, 2020#JawaaniJaaneman & found it super fun, of course, an enthusiastic bond to the whole story made so well! Tabu & Saif together are FUN! Alaya is so positive as a debutante & sheâs awesome throughout the movie! Good content for sure!

Ratings - â­â­â­#JawaaniJaanemanReview @AlayaF___ @jackkybhagnani @vashubhagnani @nitinrkakkar @poojafilms @tipsofficial â Maaz (@beingmaaz1524) January 30, 2020Going by the reactions, we can totally recommend you can watch the movie over the weekend with your family. The story revolves around a middle-aged man played by Saif, who is popular among the ladies. But his life turns upside down when he finds out he has a teenage daughter, played by Alaya. Tabu plays the role of Saif's former lover who's the mother. Talking about playing a father in the movie, Saif had earlier said, âWell, this guy has no clue he is a father. He lives in London, has a crazy lifestyle and it is kind of a bachelorâs nightmare for him to suddenly find that he is a parent. The film is about accepting your age and responsibilities. Being a parent is such an important role. If not done properly it can really damage the kids and if done right, it can be so rewarding.â But before you book your tickets, take a look at the trailer here: Planning on catching this over the weekend? Let us know in the comments. View the full article
  5. Maniesh Paul is actually quite the hypebeast. Which, given Bollywoodâs obsession with sneakers is not that surprising. On any given day, you will find our B-Towners sporting some really cool classics, most of which are actually pieces that hardcore collectors and sneakerheads would happily shell out an exorbitant amount of rupees to get their hands on. © Instagram/manieshpaul It was, therefore, quite a surprise when Maniesh Paul showed up wearing one of the most quirky pairs of sneakers ever to have been made, for a recent film screening. © Viral Bhayani But first, letâs get to his outfit. Maniesh is seen here wearing a dope camouflaged hooded t-shirt. Or a rather hooded t-sweatshirt, if that makes any sense. With that, he has paired a quirky pair of jeans, which actually has a very interesting silhouette. © Viral Bhayani Thanks to the number of exposed zippers on the front, they have a very technical appeal, and actually look quite zany. However, they certainly donât hold a candle to the quirky sneakers that heâs wearing. © Viral Bhayani Maniesh is seen here wearing the Nike Air Jordan 1 âFearlessâ sneakers, which, actually is a pair that has had the most visceral reactions to a sneaker, ever. Theyâre often referred to as clown shoes or clown sneakers, thanks to the rather flamboyant colour scheme that they have. © Hypebeast The fact that they are made of patent leather, instead of the usual calfskin leather that goes with the Jordan 1s also seems to aggravate people. The end result is a sneaker that has a classically Jordan 1 silhouette, but with a rather bizarre finish. They would have been perfect for Joaquin Phoenix in Joker, thanks to their bizarre and colours and finish. © Warner Bros. Pictures With that being said, the other colours that are part of the drop have actually been well received, particularly their all-red version of the Fearless, which sold out in minutes once they went up for sale. © Hypebeast We quite actually like the red and blue Jordan 1s. Yes, they are a little unusual, but thatâs what makes them interesting. As for the manner in which Maniesh is wearing them, having changed the laces with a pair of blue laces, they are actually kinda cool. They certainly have our approval. © Viral Bhayani Way to go Maniesh! View the full article
  6. The news of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna's death shocked the entire world two days ago. Everyone is still trying to cope with the huge loss and how a tragic accident took away the legendary athlete. Tributes for him have been pouring in since the news broke, people are honouring him for everything he's done in their own way. One of the most wholesome ways men all over the world have decided to honour him is by celebrating the fact that he was an incredible father. © Twitter After a video of ESPN anchor, Elle Duncan, shared a story about how much Kobe loved his daughters and how he talked about them when she interacted with him went viral and gave birth to the best trend ever - #GirlDad. Dads everywhere decided to honour the late basketball player by sharing their touching stories about being a 'girl dad' and it's the perfect way to celebrate him. Nothing in the world is quite like being a #girldad pic.twitter.com/0MKP0ertgT â Mike Norvell (@Coach_Norvell) January 29, 2020 The greatest.

I was scared to become a dad because of the unknown. Even more terrified to have a girl. Not because i didnât want a girl, but because I thought I would have no idea how to raise a girl. I was so wrong! Itâs been the greatest thing and I am so glad I get to be a #GirlDad pic.twitter.com/rBK5Hqn2ck â Clayton Evans (@MrCoachEvans) January 29, 2020 Wholesome.

  7. If there's one trend that has been showing up consisently, it has to be oversized chunky sneakers. Though many have a second opinion about this trend, it looks like B-town celebrities cannot get enough of it. Varun Dhawan is a perfect example of someone who has been regularly working the chunky sneakers and makes one heck of an ensemble with them. Be it his 6-inch long leather boots or super funky sneakers, he has never failed to surprise us with his sartorial choices. © Viral Bhayani As he was recently papped while promoting his upcoming movie Street Dancer 3D with Shraddha Kapoor, we noticed him in yet another zany pair of sneakers, While we have seen many stars donning some insane pair of sneakers, he took it a notch higher by wearing 'thorny' sneakers. We didn't see that coming! Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani © Sneakernews Varun is seen wearing Reebok Shaq Attaq "Big Shaqtus". These sneakers have a whole story behind them. The pair is a nod to Shaqs as a member of the Phoenix Suns, the classic 'shaq attaq' silhouette has Suns inspired look. Furthermore, to make it more appealing and give it a desert appeal, this pair has a cactus embroidered on the heel. The threads have been designed in a way that it looks it has thorns. Now, that's definitely a 'wild' fashion choice! © Sneakernews © Viral Bhayani The pair is further with updated colour-blocking that makes it look eccentric. Now, if you are this trend's chaser, these shoes don't cost a bomb. The original price as per Sneakernews is $140. Now, that makes it a worthy deal, right? © Viral Bhayani As for his outfit, Varun made a casual statement with a checked shirt layered over a white T-shirt. Add to that, his minimal distressed jeans elevated his overall look. All in all, even though they are ridiculously large, we still love its sartorial eccentricity. Hats off, Varun!

  8. Kartik Aaryan has never shied away from sartorial experiments, and he can legit claim that he has almost never failed at pulling off anything he has tried. Be it statement jackets or strange sneakers, he has always maintained a playful aesthetic when it comes to his wardrobe. While it may be a popular perception that whatever celebs wear can't be worn by us because they are extremely expensive, Kartik just proved it wrong by wearing a pair of sneakers which are actually affordable. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Kartik Aaryan wore a pair of sneakers that are inspired by the black adder snake. We love how playfully wild they are, thanks to the black and yellow snake-patterned sole. Also, what caught our focus was the price point of the shoes. © Hummel Kartik is wearing the Marathona Black Adder sneakers by Hummel, that costs somewhere around 60 Euros post discount. When converted to INR, it costs about Rs. 4,700. © Hummel The wild soles of the sneakers coupled with the black scaly surface clearly show us the inspiration behind the sneakers, and it doesn't get better when it comes to inspired pieces. © Hummel We're just glad this is one pair we can actually afford.

  9. Australia is going through a severe drought amidst the wildfires and a lot of people and animals are paying for the unfortunate circumstances there, losing both lives and property. Animals too have succumbed to their fate as more than 500 million animals have died due to these bushfires, and many more will be injured or dead, till these fires stop. In all this madness, Australia has decided to kill about 10,000 camels, and we really can't understand why! © Twitter Thousands of camels will be shot dead from helicopters, as a result of extreme heat and drought. While the bushfires have been on for a few months now, the culling isn't dependant on that. They're being culled because of the drought situation prevailing in Australia currently and there are complaints that camels are endangering locals as they desperately search for water. "They are roaming the streets looking for water. We are worried about the safety of the young children" - a woman named Marita Baker, who lives in the community of Kanypi, told the BBC in an interview. The five-day cull has already begun and a lot of aboriginals have complained about camels damaging towns and building trying to look for water. Australia has hired a professional marksman, who will shoot the animals, and ironically, he comes from Australia's department of environment and water. They will eventually be slaughtered in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) area, which is a sparsely-populated part of South Australia which is home to a number of indigenous groups. © Twitter "There is extreme pressure on remote Aboriginal communities in the APY lands and their pastoral [livestock] operations as the camels search for water," says APY's general manager Richard King in an interview with BBC. "Given ongoing dry conditions and the large camel congregations threatening all of the main APY communities and infrastructure, immediate camel control is needed," he added. Camels, though, don't originally belong to Australia and are not native species. They were brought to Australia by British settlers from India, Afghanistan and the Middle East. Although we're not sure how many camels have made Australia their home, more than a hundred thousand camels inhabit parts of central Australia. They're believed to cause havoc in farmlands by damaging fences and farm property and are also believed to drink excess water which is needed by people who live there. And apparently, they also emit methane, a greenhouse gas which contributes to climate change. But even so, are these reasons good enough to kill animals, regardless of how they behave or how much they consume? Well, if that's the case, humans should stand in line next, ready to be executed! © Twitter While camel culling is absolutely unfair in Australia, there is nothing much we can do about it, except just watch and wait. Australia has lost a phenomenal amount of wildlife and even after such devastation, they're ready to kill some more of their animals, which says a lot about how humans actually handle sensitive situations, which need a strong scientific approach to it. But Australia alone has a history of culling its animals due to various circumstances, which we can't seem to overlook. Around 1932, Australia literally went into war with emus while soldiers armed with Lewis Guns were killing emus as they were causing too much havoc and crop destruction. Before seal culling was banned in 2018, Australia was a big advocate for killing seals due to the increased interaction of the long-nosed fur seal. And recently in 2013, Australia was culling (shooting) kangaroos, as the population of 500 million kangaroos was becoming an erstwhile problem for the Aussies. They killed 90 million Kangaroos and wallabies, lawfully, for commercial purposes. © Twitter Seemingly, the only way Australia can handle a crisis amongst the wildlife is by taking extreme measures and this time, 10,000 camels are targeted for the same. We really hope and wish Australia and other nations find a more respectful way of solving a crisis, that does not involve the specie to give its life for it. View the full article
  10. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is one of the most influential cricket boards in the world. Some even believe that they are so powerful that they dominate the International Cricket Council (ICC) because of the unbelievable fan-following the sport enjoys in the country. One would therefore presume that the members of the organisation would be well prepared to combat any sort of crisis ahead of an international match and that too on home turf and not put their reputation in jeopardy. But the first of three T20I matches which was scheduled to take place in Guwahati's Barsapara Stadium would force you to think otherwise. © AP Rain is one of the biggest enemies of the game of cricket and it is a mandate for every state-level cricket association to be prepared for dicey weather. However, the Assam Cricket Association did a disappointing job in dealing with the water as the covers used to protect the pitch were reportedly leaking. According to Akash Chopra who was reporting the on-field conditions, the water seemed to be seeping out of the covers and led to the formation of damp patches on the pitch. © AP As if that wasn't enough, the best counter-solution to the issue that the organisation could come up with was to use vacuum cleaners, hair dryers and steam irons to dry the wet spots! Obviously failing in their attempts, the match had to be abandoned without a single ball bowled and the Guwahati crowd didn't get to experience what could have been the first international match in three years. Despite the horrible preparation (which was barely any) it was the warm spirit of the fans present at the venue that kept the night alive. While the game was put on hold, the entire Barsapara stadium sang 'Vande Matarum' together and created a memorable moment. Guwahati, you beauty ð#INDvSL pic.twitter.com/QuZAq7i1E3 — BCCI (@BCCI) January 5, 2020 But the rest of the fans weren't as forgiving and roasted the Indian cricket board for their lack of efficiency ahead of the match: Shame on u @BCCI @BCCIdomestic Richest cricket board in the world, well said pic.twitter.com/gYf3SH5YKA — bp_honnkal (@HonnkalBp) January 5, 2020 BCCI Fans/Clowns :- We've Got The Richest Cricketing Board, We're The Greatest Cricketing Nation, Giant Among Minnows Etc Etc BCCI Reality :- HaHaHaHa ð#INDvSL ð pic.twitter.com/zGXtm964A4 — CriCkeT KinGð¤´ð»ð (@imtheguy007) January 5, 2020 #HareemShah_leaks BCCI Million of rupees zaya karta hai puri dunya me politics kr kei.!

  11. When we talk about a gym ensemble, the most important pieces would be a t-shirt, joggers and comfortable trainers. That being said, if there's someone who has been constantly serving us with all the motivation, it is Arjun Kapoor with his latest transformation and his impressive gym looks. View this post on Instagram Getting ready for the new decade with a smile on my face ð A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jan 2, 2020 at 10:33pm PST Sartorially speaking, Arjun has time and again proven his fashion prowess and turned heads with some impeccable ensembles. Then be it him wearing kurta pyjama with security tag sneakers or strutting in strange pants, he is ruling the fashion arena, lately. While his promotion looks are head-turning, even his gym looks are nothing less than an inspiration. © Viral Bhayani Arjun is now known for his fashion quotient and here's another proof of that. Recently, he was papped wearing buttoned joggers with super comfortable sneakers. We have to say he has established his claim of being the most fashionable at all hours. © Myntra He is wearing OG Adibreak Track Pants by Adidas Originals. The brand brings back the basketball silhouette of the 90s. The original making of these pants has now been modernised with recycled polyester. Furthermore, these pants feature contrast panel with metal snaps from ankle to waist. © Myntra This product minimises the environmental impact with its recycled fabric which truly makes it an exemplary choice. Not just that, these track pants are available on many e-commerce websites for Rs. 4,000. Now, that's what we call affordable. © Amazon Coming to his sneakers, Arjun looked zany with his Asics FuzeX Lyte 2. Just as the name suggests, this pair snugs well and is super light on the feet. You can strut wearing them wherever you like, even snug in your bed! The seamless construction causes less friction with its fuzeGEL technology. © Viral Bhayani Even the sneakers are inexpensive and cost about Rs. 4,000 approximately. And since we are constantly hunting for an affordable pair of sneakers for the gym, we guess this one is it! Truly, we love how Arjun is refashioning his gym look and making it relatable for us. Well done! View the full article

According to NDTV, an airline official said, “The flight got delayed due to a technical snag on Thursday. It had to return to the bay. Passengers started knocking on the cockpit door, asking and taunting the pilots to come out.” He also said, "One passenger even said that he will break open the cockpit door if the pilots didn't come out and the situation inside the plane went from bad to worse".

  13. 2019's been a year of truly stellar performances, both homegrown and international for Indian stages across the subcontinent. World-class venues and massive-scale festivals have worked across the last decade or so to make India a serious pitstop for music enthusiasts - and there's nothing quite like the end-of-year (and this time, decade) spectacle of the Magnetic Fields festival. Held in mid-December, Fields is perhaps the closest thing to a 'Burning Man' that India has - infused with heady doses of Rajasthani culture and the most eclectic lineup of artists you can expect to find in one place. We caught up with three of them during this fateful weekend at Budweiser's BudX Stage, each with their own unique stories to tell. Ross From Friends/Felix Weatherall - Colchester, United Kingdom © Abhishek Shukla; The 25 year old has a fistful of releases under his belt, the distillation of myriad influences from hip-hop cut 'n' paste culture, 80s Eurobeat, Hi-NRG and Italo into lithe, irresistible, raw dance floor trax. It's been around a year-and-half since Brainfeeder got you on-board and Family Portrait came out. What's different for you, comparing then and now? How have you changed? I feel like now I'm probably more willing and able to try new things with my music. I think there's a tendency for artists that once they get known for one type of sound, they stick to it because they know it works and it's comfortable. Since releasing on Brainfeeder, I'm not saying I've started making mad left-field jungle stuff, but I've got the confidence now to know that if I ever do want to go in that sort of direction, and I do it with integrity, that it'll work. Magnetic Fields is a pretty unique festival in a wildly different venue for most Indian artists - let alone European acts. What's going through your mind as the festival draws near? What are you looking forward to the most? It's really exciting to have been invited to play here. It's such a unique festival. I'm really looking forward to catching some of the other acts, especially some of the Indian artists that I'm not so familiar with. As for what's going through my mind, I'm just prepping for this gig as I do for any gig, hoping we can rise to the occasion! © Avirat Sundra One of my favourite parts of your music are your awesome choices when it comes to sampling. How does the process go, and where do you think your taste comes from? The sampling is a really important part of it for me, actually. It's not something I can rush. I try to build up a really bulky sample library before I even think about making proper music with it, so in that sense I don't go looking for samples to fit a beat I've made or anything like that. I spend hours trawling through the dark corners of YouTube trying to find a good little snippet of dialogue, or a cool instrumental. For that, my taste is really wide-ranging, it can come from anywhere, to be honest. I'll then build a track around what I've managed to find. There are multiple stories I've heard behind your stage name. Do you think 'Ross From Friends' would be friends with Ross Geller himself? No probably not. Everyone knows Ross is the worst. Of anyone, I'd probably be more mates with Chandler. We share more of the same humour I think. Ross is too straight-laced for me! Fieldlines/Andi Teichmann - Regensburg, Germany © RC Photography; Bridging the gap between eastern and western, this week-long project brought together Berlin's and Rajasthan's musical talents - a unique fusion of old and new, analogue and digital. Naturally, the Fieldlines project is, in many ways, representative of MagFields as a whole. What's been the biggest challenge in combining traditional folk music through modern production techniques? We see ourselves more as electronic musicians than as producers, in the sense that we want to perform music together in real time. We've been working on various interdisciplinary projects, from contemporary music to traditional music from Nigeria or central Asia. The task is to open and create common grounds and spaces to interact in a musical way. The local folk music is rooted in a traditional context with complex rules and social meanings. The challenge is to include both traditions, from the electronic contemporary music and the local folk music, on an equal level in that musical space. The aim is to create a musical language that goes beyond companying or illustrating each other's music. I'm sure that the entire process has been a cultural education of sorts for both sides. What's something that you've imbibed from the experience? For us it is fascinating to see how music works as a communication tool. For a verbal dialogue we need two translators: from the local dialect to Hindi, from Hindi to English and the other way round. The musical dialogue works directly in real time. Once we reached a point where we understood each other's expressions and techniques better, we could just go together on a musical journey and explore unknown territories. It's also amazing to see how music and musicians play an important and respected role in society and how knowledge has been transferred through generations. Ustad Hakim Khan - the kamaicha player, plays an instrument that has been handed from father to son for over 300 years. © Avirat Sundra As the festival takes place, I'm excited to take a look at the interactive sessions planned ahead. Could you shed some light as to what the experience promises? The first few days were spent trying to find common grounds, it was a lot about rhythms and techniques, the various types of Indian folk and classical music, the context of the ragas. On the third day we had an intimate performance, in front of a small audience at our studio. At that point a 'switch' turned on, everyone left the songs and ideas, we've been practicing, behind and entered a total free and improvised space. After we finished, there was a big smile on everyone's face. That is the journey we want to present and share with the audience. It's not just a fusion of styles, but a fusion of ages as well - with legendary artists such as septuagenarian Ustad Hakeem Khan playing alongside musicians in their teens. Could you share some thoughts on this? To play together with diverse generations and without gender boundaries is a very normal and important approach in our collaborative practice. Nevertheless, we've been told that in the local context, it is a quite revolutionary breaking with traditions to have this mixed group: Having Sumitra Devi a female singer and harmonium player, Firoz Khan, who is 16-years-old and Ustad Hakim Khan, who is almost 80 years. Three Oscillators/Brij Dalvi - Mumbai, India © Ayush Jajoria; Formed in 2015, Three Oscillators is a project consisting of Brij Dalvi and Avit Rane. Their sound falls under the realm of glitch, sci-fi influences and futurism - all while seamlessly blending various shades of emotion and electronica. It's your first time performing at a festival of this scale - what do you feel about the audience at Magnetic Fields? The crowd here is intense, man. I've only ever heard stories - for three years, MagFields was just an enigma for me. I never thought I'd come here and check all of this out. Everyone here is very receptive and just really into it. This sort of intimacy hasn't happened yet - in Bombay, most people just stand by the bar, it's really different here. It's been a transformative journey over the last few years - do you think often about the old days, before you decided to go serious with producing music? Yeah, I mean… honestly, there was no specific point from where I wanted to commit to making music. It was a gradual process. Things just kept happening, and I kept listening to more music. I don't look back, honestly - things happened, and now I'm here. *laughs* What are you looking to catch while at MagFields? Ross From Friends. That's the only act I'm familiar with *laughs*, but honestly, this festival is all about discovery. There's a lot of stuff out here to see and hear - a lot of DJ sets, a lot of selectors… it's crazy. Now I know why people rave about this festival so much, it really is that good. View the full article
  14. There is no dearth of policing in the country right now wherein every Tom, Dick and Harry has come to believe that their opinion is the Bible, and it gives them the right to go around shoving their stunted opinions down people's throats. Well, guess what all you pseudo-policemen, we have had enough of your verbal (and mental) diarrhea aimed at directing how we live our lives. © ANI Why this sudden surge of emotions you ask? Well get this. At a religious function being held in Begusarai recently, Union Minister and Bihar MP Giriraj Singh made a shocking comment when he said that convent-taught students who go abroad start eating beef because missionary schools don't imbibe Indian “sanskaar” in them. © BCCL Here's what he said exactly, "I say this because it has been seen that at schools run by missionaries, children from well-off families excel academically, go on to have successful careers... but when they go abroad they eat beef. Why? This is because we have not inculcated 'sanskaar' (tradition) in them.” Err, are you serious sir? © BCCL Not just that, the old man didn't stop until he suggested why teaching the Bhagavad Gita and Hanuman Chalisa should be made mandatory in private schools because obviously that's where we can find all the anti-nationals. It's appalling to watch these top ministers and public representatives make such drastic comments about what people eat and how it defines them. View the full article

  16. If there was an award for the super fashionable sibling duo in Bollywood, we are certain that Vicky and Sunny Kaushal will take the award home. While one Kaushal has already hit the headlines, the younger one isn't far behind. Not just limited to acting, but a quick look at their fashion game and you would notice that they give each other some serious competition. © Viral Bhayani With excellent sartorial choices, the Kaushal brothers turned heads yet again. They were both at their casual best; however, their sneakers looked so edgy that we just couldn't ignore them. © Viral Bhayani © Sneakernews While Vicky was seen making a statement wearing Golden Goose Superstar sneakers, Sunny, on the other hand, turned heads with his 'Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Citrin'. © Sneakernews Vicky's grey golden goose sneakers appear dirty due to its distressed finish but in reality, it's only the effect that makes it look like that. Furthermore, the golden goose features a round toe with lace-up front. The modern aesthetics of these sneakers will let you stay calm even if they get dirtier. It's a smart fashion move we would say, Vicky! © Sneakernews Coming to Sunny's sneakers, the pair sticks to the split colour palette that makes it look effortless. It has a knitted upper with transparent mesh stripe. Down below, you would notice its boost midsole that adds the comfort factor. The subtle colourways came together to make a pair that's certainly hard to ignore. © Viral Bhayani Both the pairs have unique aesthetics that will instantly take your breath away. We have to say that if you are looking to add some zany pair of sneakers to your collection, consider investing in these ones. Take a bow, you two! View the full article

Turning to Instagram, the 43-year-old Legally Blonde star penned a moving and emotional note reflecting on her journey of the show that brought the two crowd-favourite stars back on small screens. Along with the monochrome photo of Reese and Jennifer hugging and appearing to be visibly emotional, the Big Little Lies actor wrote: “There are not enough hugs, heart emojis or words to express how much I cherish working with @jenniferaniston.” “She is one of the hardest working people I know,” she continued to sing praises Jennifer, who essayed the role of her character Jill Green’s sister Rachel Green on the hit classic sitcom Friends. “To all the writers, producers, camera operators, assistants, actors, set & costume designers.... THANK YOU! I am honored to work among women & men who feel equally passionate about story-telling and collaborated on all levels to bring this show to life,” she continued.

  21. Even though Anil Kapoor is 62 years old, his persona looks like he is ageing in reverse. Besides that, if there's one more fact that can easily give other B-town stars a run for their money, then it has to be his fashion game. He is seen strutting in outfits that make him look a million bucks. From layering his outfits the right way to wearing sneakers that are chunky, Mr Kapoor does all the fashion things right, we would say. View this post on Instagram Monday?

Check it out: © Viral Bhayani © Sneaker Bar Detroit Anil Kapoor keeps himself abreast of the latest trends and these sneakers are a proof of that. He is seen wearing Air Jordan 1 All-Star 'Chameleon' sneakers. The sneakers are decked in white, black, silver and green tones.

Furthermore, these sneakers have black overlays on the toe as well as the inner liner. © Sneaker Bar Detroit © Sneaker Bar Detroit Not just Anil Kapoor, but many other elite Bollywood stars have experimented with their Jordans. Abhishek Bachchan, for example, wore his pair of sneakers with two different laces while Arjun Kapoor chose to keep his Jordans fearless. © Viral Bhayani These Retro sneakers released in 2017 and they retail at $175 as per Sneaker News.

  22. Almost everyone knows about solar energy and its various uses, yet in our fast-paced lives we've become so heavily dependant on using non-renewable resources to create electricity that we totally forgot about it. At a time when the world is struggling with major climate change, global warming and various environmental issues; looks like our 'prayers' have finally been heard, quite literally all thanks to a temple in Gujarat's Surat. In a bid to save electricity, the Badrinarayan temple in Surat switched to solar energy and installed solar panels on the terrace of the temple. But, that's not even the best part. The best part is, they are going to use that saved money to promote education in the region. The shrine has started a college and a school for Sanskrit. So far, 50 kilowatt capacity solar panels worth Rs 25 lakh have been installed on the terrace of the temple. Praveen Chandra, temple's trustee: The electricity bill used to be very high. So motive behind this was to save money. The bill dropped from Rs 1.5-2 Lakh per month to Rs 10-12,000 per month now. With the money that was saved, we started a college and a school for Sanskrit.(6.12) https://t.co/Ahm5yuiFB7 pic.twitter.com/kGuU2ga88g — ANI (@ANI) December 6, 2019 Reportedly, temple's trustee Praveen Chandra said that the electricity bill used to be very high, so they switched to using solar energy, "The motive behind this was to save money. The bill has dropped from Rs 1.5-2 Lakh per month to Rs 10-12,000 per month. With the money that is saved every month, the shrine started a college and a school for Sanskrit." Gujarat: A part of Badrinarayan Temple, a temple in Surat's Adajan, is being run on solar power. 50 kilowatt capacity solar panels have been installed on the terrace of the temple with an expense of Rs 25 Lakh.

  23. We desi people are so used to seeing the 'babu or VIP culture' here that we have started assuming that it's an unsaid norm and the global leaders too are following the same culture. But, not everyone follows the same culture and there are some who set an example for the world to follow soon after. Not everyone makes other people open doors for them, just because they're famous. And not everyone makes other people pick their luggage just because they are royalty. We're talking about the Swedish royal couple King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who are currently on their five-day visit to India. Now, you might expect the royal couple to come in their private aircraft from Stockholm, but they chose an Air India commercial flight instead and carried their own bags after landing at the airport. © Reuters The official Twitter account of Air India tweeted about them travelling in Air India and wrote, "Very Proud moment for Air India when we had a Special Guest onboard. His Majesty Carl Gustaf Folke Hubertus , King of Sweden and Her Majesty Silvia Renate Sommerlath travelled AI168 Stockholm to Delhi. Ms. Sangeeta Sanyal Country Manager Sweden greeted the Royal guests." #FlyAI : Very Proud moment of Air India when we had a Special Guest onboard.

  24. Even though Shah Rukh Khan has been in the industry for more than two decades now, his fashion game still remains indubitable. His style has evolved over time and has gotten only better. We swooned over his uber-cool way to accessorise back then and now, and his appearances in classic suits or relaxed outfits are unmissable. © viralbhayani Recently, he was spotted in a subdued and a casual avatar. His airport game looked like it has evolved by miles as he was seen wearing ill-fitted jeans that are extremely baggy. A leap that was least expected from SRK happened and we couldn't stop digging his look. © viralbhayani Speaking of extra-long or extra baggy pants, even Ranveer was wearing them. We loved how he was seen making a statement in such ill-fitted jeans and still looked dapper doing so. On the other hand, when the 'Badshah Of Bollywood' styled his baggy pants, we must say, he did it better than Ranveer could. Looks like someone else is ready to take the throne. © viralbhayani © viralbhayani It's not just Ranveer or SRK who have delved into it but even Tiger Shroff was seen turning heads in such dope pants. The unaltered style is definitely the right way to look relaxed and stylish. As for SRK's overall airport ensemble, he wore a plaid bomber jacket with patchwork baggy pants. If this is not experimental, we don't know what is. Must say, SRK is truly ageing in reverse when it comes to his sartorial sensibilities. View the full article
