  1. OnePlus has already created a lot of hype for its launch event tomorrow where the company is expected to showcase a new phone called OnePlus Nord. Along with the new phone, we're also expecting to see OnePlus' first pair of truly wireless earbuds, the OnePlus Buds. In case you missed it, we already got a glimpse of the OnePlus Buds a few days back when OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei had an interaction with YouTube creator Marques Brownlee. You can check out the OnePlus Buds below - © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee But besides that, the folks over at 9to5Google have now showcased us some leaked renders. These renders give us our best look at the OnePlus Buds. So, the first thing to note is that the OnePlus Buds will be available in three colourways - While, Black, and Teal. Carl Pei is seen wearing the Teal variant in the video, but we'll have to see how it looks in person. As for the design, we can see a rounded case here that looks more or less similar to the Pixel Buds. The case seems to have a matte finish, although that could just be the rendered image. We also see an LED indicator for the battery on the front along with a physical button for pairing and switching button. The earbuds, well, they just look like any other TWS earbuds on the market. There's nothing unusually different here, so there's nothing much to talk about. © 9to5Google We are expecting OnePlus to launch these tomorrow alongside the OnePlus Nord. We'll have more to talk about its features once it becomes official tomorrow. OnePlus has officially confirmed that the earphones will weigh 4.6 grams each whereas the charging case weighs 36 grams. The company also noted that we can expect around 30 hours of life in total, so that's interesting. Let's just wait for more info about these tomorrow. Source: 9to5Google View the full article
  2. For someone who was often labelled as brash and overtly aggressive early in his career, Virat Kohli has come a long way to not only mature into an astute leader for Team India, but also as one of the best batsmen in modern-day cricket. Today, he stands tall with numerous batting and captaincy records highlighting his success in international cricket. Owing to his success with the willow, Kohli is one of the only three cricketers to enjoy a lucrative A+ central contract with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that allows him to earn a staggering Rs 7 crore per year. Apart from that, he earns quite handsomely through brand endorsements due to his popularity amongst fans. For someone who has success, fame and money, it's quite obvious to see Kohli boasting of some of the most desirable and ridiculously expensive things. From swanky cars, luxury pads to exclusive timepieces, 'King Kohli' has got it all. Here's a look at 5 of the most expensive things owned by the Indian captain that truly make him a cut above the rest: 1. Rolex Daytona Rainbow Everose Gold (Rs 69 Lakh) © YouTube Often labelled as the 'king' of modern-day cricket, the 31-year-old, for all his wealth, quite understandably owns properties in the plush areas of Indian cities. Amongst the houses he owns, Kohli has one luxurious bungalow in Gurugram, Haryana. Located in DLF Phase 1, the 500-square-yard bungalow is no less than a palace. With modern architecture and jaw-dropping interiors, Kohli's bungalow, just like its owner, breathes elegance and style. From the exquisite swimming pool, well-decked bar to alluring designs inside, the house is everything that Kohli represents, both on and off the field. The Indian captain shelled out a whopping Rs 80 crore to buy this property right after his marriage to Anushka Sharma in Italy. View the full article
  3. Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff has become the dancing star of the industry. After basking in the glory of his film, Baaghi 3, he is now making his fans groove to recreated version of the iconic Bappi Lahiri song âI am a Disco Dancer 2.0â. View this post on InstagramGetting the disco Groove back - 2.0 style! I am a Disco Dancer 2.0. Dropping on Wednesday 18th March. On the Saregama Youtube channel. Stay tuned! #DiscoNeverDies #DND @saregama_official @akanksharmaa @ba.media @boscomartis @dipankardesignstudio @salimsulaimanmusic @bennydayalofficialA post shared by (@tigerjackieshroff) The song is a Salim-Sulaiman composition and is bringing back Disco era in a never seen before avatar of Tiger Shroff. The dancing star filmed the complex choreography conceptualised by Bosco Leslie Martis in just 12 hours. Tiger only had a few hours between the promotion of his film Baaghi 3 and he aced the elaborated moves along with shooting for the song overnight. Amidst Tigerâs busy schedule, he didnât have much time to practise the moves during the day and used to practise late night with Bosco. View this post on InstagramDisco mode on! I Am A Disco Dancer - 2.0. Dropping tomorrow on the official Saregama Music youtube channel. #Staytuned #DiscoNeverDies #DND @saregama_official @akanksharmaa @ba.media @boscomartis @dipankardesignstudio @salimsulaimanmusic @bennydayalofficialA post shared by (@tigerjackieshroff) Reportedly, he didnât take any breaks in between the song shoot and finished the song within 12 hours straight. While explaining the challenges he faced due to a shortage of time, Tiger said, âI am a Disco Dancer is an iconic song, immortalized on screen by the legendary Mithun sir. The opportunity to pay homage to the disco era and recreate the vibe and verve of the song to a younger audience was too much to let go. Yes, it was a hectic shoot â but it was totally worth it, matching up to the impeccable choreography done by Bosco sir, set to a new sound by stalwarts - Salim Sulaiman. I am excited to share this video with everybody â hoping it gets everybody in the disco groove.â Recently, Bosco also took to his social media and shared a BTS video of the song wherein Tiger looks like a superhero. Check out the video here.

And then we shot it in 12 hours flat, which could be done only with someone as committed and dedicated as Tiger. Tiger, once again you did it bro - tirelessly striving to get the right vibe and moves - it speaks volumes of your dedication. I hope you guys enjoy this song as much as I did creating & shooting it! Let's DISCO WITH AN UNCONVENTIONAL SWAG!â Check out the full video of the song here- On the other hand, Baaghi 3is inching close to the 100 crore club at the box office. However, the filmâs box office collection is largely affected as the theatres are shut down till March 31 to contain the Coronavirus outbreak. View the full article
  4. The coronavirus outbreak in the country is gradually sending people into a tizzy, and it might not be long before real panic strikes as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in India sees a steady climb. However, despite having witnessed the havoc coronavirus has wreaked across the globe, if our country is still managing to stand tall, it is because of the unsung heroes who are braving all odds, risking their personal safety and working relentlessly to serve the people and help contain this life-threatening contagion. © Twitter These 7 heroes are godsend and the real saviours during this global pandemic, and without their selfless service, our world would not only come to a scary standstill but perhaps also collapse altogether. 1. Doctors, Nurses & Public Health OfficialsWe couldnât have kicked off this list without these miracle workers who are literally saving lives right now. With 162 countries trying to fight the pandemic, we have heard of enough heroic tales of the doctors and nurses who are literally working straight 8 hour shifts wearing diapers and shaving their heads off to wear the safety gear - just so that their patients find relief. © BCCL For instance, this Indian plastic surgeon who stayed back in China to help the infected victims instead of seeking the safety of his homeland. There are thousands of more such inspiring stories. 2. Armed Forces © Twitter Over 890 Indians have been evacuated by IAF and Air India rescue flights so far. The IAF is also set to rescue Indian nationals from Iran, The Indian armed forces has been doing extensive work not only by opening its bases to serve as quarantine facilities, but also by carrying medical supplies and serving the general public amid the outbreak. 3. Public Transportation Drivers & Conductors © BCCL Remember that Hubli bus conductor who was handing out free masks to passengers? That is just one way these guys have been serving the country. Imagine what would happen if these public transportation drivers went on indefinite leaves? Life really would come to a standstill. 4. Delivery Guys © B P Deepu-EPS With so many people working from home amid the nationwide coronavirus outbreak, and with 80 percent of them being clueless about cooking, a vast majority of people are relying on food delivery services to keep them well fed. But despite the fact that even they have faced a dip in their sales, deliveries are still being made. These men on bikes and cycles risking their safety to deliver food to these less culinarily-endowed (or just too lazy/entitled) people, also deserve a special mention. 5. Security Personnel © BCCL We feel safe because we know they are out there guarding us. Be it our guard bhaiya or the security personnel on the roads and public places who are helping maintain law and decorum at this point, we ought to acknowledge their service especially at a time like this. 6. Shopkeepers & Salespersons © Pixabay We donât often think about it, but imagine how lucky and privileged we are to have people out there who are putting out food on the shelves for us. If the salesperson stopped coming to work and decided to stay home, or if the shopkeepers shut shop, how would we manage to survive the mass quarantines? Quarantines have already taken an ugly face with empty shelves and people crying for basic commodities, imagine living through a complete lockdown like that? 7. Sanitation Workers © BCCL Last but definitely not the least, because all of it will be equally meaningless without these people who are relentlessly going about their job cleaning and sanitising not only our streets, offices and public places, but by also helping sterilise public transport, airports and railway stations therefore playing a vital role in containing the contagion. There is so much we take for granted in our daily lives. There is so much to be grateful for and itâs sad to see that it took something as dreadful as the COVID-19 pandemic to open our eyes and appreciate the efforts of these unsung heroes put in every day of their lives.

  5. There are a ton of truly wireless earbuds available out there in the market. We've reviewed a lot of them here at MensXP, including both the budget as well as expensive ones. But I recently stumbled upon something that caught my attention. I am talking about the HiFuture TidyBuds Pro wireless earbuds. Yes, it looks like any other pair of truly wireless earbuds, but this one has a nifty feature up its sleeves. The charging case which is used to charge the buds can be used as a power bank to charge your phone as well. Isn't that cool? While most truly wireless earbuds struggle to keep the buds charged at all times, these earbuds' charging case can charge other devices as well. Now that's very interesting so I decided to check it out and see if they're worth the price. Here's my full review of the HiFuture Tidybuds Pro - Design & Build Quality © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer In its flesh, the TidyBuds Pro looks just like any other pair of truly wireless earbuds in the market. The earbuds are fairly small and lightweight. They're not too heavy so I'd say they're very comfortable to wear as well. Both the buds have a touch surface with which you can interact with the buds and do things like play or pause music, skip track, and more. The earbuds are made out of plastic and honestly, they don't feel super-premium. But I like how they fit my ears well. They feel secure in place and won't budge even if I am, say, running or doing some sort of exercise. You get extra ear tips inside the box, so you can choose the one that fits your ear size. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As for the charging case, there's no denying that it's massive. That's probably my only complaint because you can't put it into your pockets. It has to go inside a bag. But I like how they've used a rubberized material for the construction. It gives it a good grip to hold and makes it look fairly premium too. The highlight feature of the charging case, however, is the fact that it comes with a 3,000 mAh battery inside. That's not normal for a pair of truly wireless earbuds. I also like the fact that the charging case uses a USB Type C port to charge. The same cable can be used to reverse charge other devices with a USB Type C port or you can always use other cables to charge them. This came in really handy to me while I was testing these out while reviewing the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Audio Quality © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Yes, the reverse charging feature is cool and all, but ultimately these are a pair of truly wireless earbuds. So how's the audio quality? Well, to my surprise, they're pretty good. The TidyBuds Pro comes with a dynamic 6mm graphene driver and it outputs decent bass and high-mids. The audio quality is also very clear with crisp details. I am happy to report that the vocals are crisp and continue to remain that way even at peak volumes. So regardless of what you like to listen to, be it RnB, pop music or hard rock, the TidyBuds Pro will deliver a very good experience. In comparison, I'd say the TidyBuds Pro sounds louder than my AirPods (1st gen), but the sound does leak out so you might want to keep the volume low if you don't want others hearing what you're listening to. Battery Life © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The battery life, as I mentioned, is one of the highlights of these earbuds. The buds themselves have a 75mAh battery inside with which they promise to deliver an 8-hour battery life. I'd say you'd get about 6 hours max on a single charge, which is still not that bad by any means. And you know what? That's nothing to worry about because you literally have a 3,000 mAh battery waiting to charge the buds. The charging case has two ports out of which one can be used to charge the case itself whereas the other can be used to charge other devices and take advantage of that reverse charging feature. The company claims that the charging case can give you up to 100 hours of listening time, which is absolutely insane. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Well, I'd be lying if I said I managed to kill the battery inside the charging case, like, ever. I only use earbuds to listen to music when I am commuting to work, and that's barely like an hour every day. So I'd say I was able to use the buds without charging the case for more than two weeks, which is just awesome! As I mentioned, you can also use it to charge other devices like smartphones and accessories. But I'd say it's best if you use it to charge some other device instead of a smartphone because the output is very low and it would take forever to charge it. But it's nice to have it as a backup in case you need it. The Final Say The HiFuture TidyBuds Pro is available to purchase for Rs. 4,499 on Amazon. For that price, you're getting a good sounding pair of earbuds with exceptional battery life. Honestly, those are the only two things to look for primarily when it comes to buying a good pair of truly wireless earbuds. Yes, there are some trade offs like the massive size of the charging case and okay-ish build quality. But those are not deal-breakers in my opinion and I really enjoyed using this product. In case you're looking for other options then we suggest you check out the 1More Stylish TWS or even the Realme Buds Air, which are both around the same price range as this one. However, none of them have an impressive 3,000 mAh, so take your pick. View the full article
  6. Back from the ancient civilisation of Mohenjodaro to the nationâs broad-sweeping civil enterprises in the post-Independence era, India has been home to engineers of incredible tenacity and ambition. Along with making our lives more modernised than ever before, theyâve also resulted in grand opportunities for employment and connections between cities and states. An excellent future example can be found in recent plans to construct a 20-kilometer long, four-lane bridge between Assam and Meghalaya - a behemoth Rs. 4,997 crore project that sweeps over the vast Brahmaputra river, and promises to become the longest bridge in the subcontinent by 2027. Here are some marvels that have already made Indiaâs civil engineers and the rest of the populace proud alike, over the last few decades. 1. Pamban Bridge © Government of Tamil Nadu A stunning railway bridge that floats between Tamil Naduâs mainland and the southward island of Rameswaram, this 100+ year-old marvel has been recently restored in 2019 and has perhaps one of the most stunning, immersive views you can experience while travelling by the Indian Railways. While it isnât the longest at around 2 kilometres, cyclone threats and the worldâs second-most corrosive coastal environment made this bridge a serious challenge for engineers. It even features a picturesque âBasculeâ style lifting section, which allows ships to pass through. 2. P.V. Narasimha Rao Expressway © YouTube Opened to the public in 2009 after a long 4-year construction process, the âPVNR Expresswayâ was named after âIndiaâs Father of Economic Reformsâ and perhaps rightly so - the Rs 500 crore project forms a major lifeline for Hyderabadâs economic centres as the longest flyover ever constructed in the country. 3. Pir Panjal Tunnel © Wikimedia Railway tunnels are perhaps one of the most fun parts of train travel through Indiaâs several mountainous regions, and this massive-scale infrastructure project happens to be the longest one in the country at just over 11 kilometres. Taking a lengthy 9-and-a-half minutes to cross, it was the first time India had ever used the New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM) to construct a railway tunnel - using the Pir Panjal mountain rangeâs unique geological structures to keep the tunnel stable and structurally sound. 4. Chenab Bridge © Wikimedia Currently under construction, the Chenab bridge is located in the Resai district of Jammu. Spanning the width of the Chenab river, this bridge is supported at around 1,178 ft above the riverbed, making it the worldâs highest rail bridge. Itâs an incredible engineering feat considering not just the height and logistical challenges involved, but the rugged terrain and tough geological conditions of the Himalayan ranges it intends to connect. 5. Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project © Wikimedia The Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project (KLIP) is the largest of its kind in the world and one of Asiaâs greatest-ever infrastructure investments, costing a whopping Rs. 1.2 lakh crore to complete. After the state of Telangana experienced serious water woes in the the mid-2010s, the project was initiated in 2016 and completed in 2019 - allowing the Godavari river to extend into a near-2,000 kilometre chain of water supply thatâs helped thousands of farmers and replenished groundwater supplies in villages across the state. 6. Project Himank Roads © Conde Nast Traveller You may have thought that the famed Khardung La Pass in Ladakh is the worldâs highest road, but this lofty title was recently snatched away in 2017 by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) Project Himank road, which runs through Umlingla Top at a dizzying 19,300 feet - thatâs over half the height of Mt. Everest! The road also has its fair share of amusing caution signs, that read messages such as âI'm curvaceous, but please take me slowly,â and âLet your insurance policy mature before you.â View the full article
  7. âAgar aap focused aur dedicated hain toh raaste apne aap bante jaate hain, Google ki zaroorat nahi padti navigation ke liye.â - Pankaj Tripathi This statement completely sums up Pankaj Tripathi's career and how, with time, his achievements have only grown bigger. He has now bagged a lead role in a movie titled Kaagaz that is backed by Salman Khanâs production house. Pankaj Tripathi entered the film industry with Run and Omkara in 2004 and has every time made his presence felt on the big screen. From Sacred Games to Stree, he has proved his versatility too. And now, with him getting the center stage in Kaagaz, we can safely say how he has redefined the role of a hero in Bollywood. View this post on Instagramà¤à¤¸ à¤à¤­à¤¿à¤¨à¤¯ वालॠà¤à¤¾à¤¦à¥ à¤à¥ बनानॠमà¥à¤ à¤à¥à¤°à¥à¤¥ à¤à¥ à¤à¤à¤ बहà¥à¤¤ à¤à¤¼à¤°à¥à¤°à¥ हà¥à¥¤A post shared by (@pankajtripathi) In an interview with Mid-Day, Pankaj Tripathi said that when he started off, things were completely different and he never imagined good things would come to him. âAbout 10 years ago, the idea of a Bollywood hero was different. Today, we honour the story and its requirements," said the actor stating his happiness as he is playing the lead role in Kaagaz that is based on the real-life story of Lal Bihari, a farmer who was declared dead on paper. âWhen I joined the movies, I had never imagined that any of these wonderful things were possible for me. I came to the movies with modest expectations, looking for good work. The very fact that the audience welcomed me with so much love is humbling. Kaagaz is my first solo hero project, and there's nothing more fulfilling for an actor than the after-feeling of being part of such a strong story,â added the actor. Interestingly, he is also a part of Kabir Khan's '83 and the makers shared a poster featuring him, today. The actor would be playing PR Man Singh, the manager of India's cricket team in 1983. Singh led the Indian cricket team as its manager both in 1983 and 1987 when the team reached the semi-finals of the World Cup tournament. Fans have been loving the first look and are looking forward to watching him in the movie.

  8. A heartwarming video of an elderly man rescuing a cat has surfaced on the internet and is winning hearts. In the video, we can see the cat has climbed on top of a tin roof over a shop, wherein it got stuck. One elderly man spotted the cat and decided to help. So, he took a chair and held it over his head so that the cat could jump on the chair and then could be freed. Soon, the cat jumped on the chair and ran away as soon as it was brought to the ground. The video has already been viewed around nine lakh times on Facebook and has also created a lot of buzz on Twitter.

  9. When Jose Mourinho signed a contract with Tottenham Hotspur, many were convinced that the Portuguse would drown the team even deeper in the points table of the Premier League than where they already were. However, ever since the former Manchester United manager was brought in, the Spurs have surged from their 14th place to an impressive 6th position within his first 10 games with a win percentage of 60. To be fair, protecting their own goal has not been all that great as the Hotspur defense has allowed at least two or more goals in seven of the first 10 games since Mouriho took over the driving seat. No teams should fear our defense right now, not even Norwich (no disrespect). Agree for the most part that it's not completely tactics. Individual performances must be better so hopefully Mourinho can tweak it. It's hard to see though right now. Defense was completely flat. — zman11215 (@spurdawg1) December 5, 2019 It is also true that the former La Liga championship winning coach hasn't got the time to breathe ever since he acquired his new job north of London. Having said that, it feels as if the infamously outspoken Mourinho might be back to make the headlines. Just like during the loss to Southampton when he ripped apart everyone on and off the field except his Lillywhites. It starts with Mourinho calling one of the coaching staff members of Southampton an “idiot” and then goes on to challenging the very existence of VAR. Mourinho also believed that St Mary's ballboys were well trained in delaying the game and wasting valuable time. Admitting to being issued a yellow card for being rude to his opponent's goalkeeping coach the Hotspur coach said: “I think the yellow card is fair because I was rude, but I was rude to an idiot. For some reason I was rude. But I was, and because I was rude I deserve the yellow card. Basically, I had bad words with the guy.” Jose Mourinho on his yellow card after spying on Southampton's tactics: "I think the yellow card is fair because I was rude, but I was rude to an idiot!" The real Jose is back. 𤣠pic.twitter.com/loaliWG1i8 — FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) January 1, 2020 “The second half was not easy,” he said. “They were winning, they were defending basically with 10 players, fighting hard and being aggressive, a good aggressive, with lots of fouls, lots of [times] the match stopped and the ballboys were well coached in the delaying of the game and there was not much play.” Angry at the VAR after losing his star player Harry Kane to a hamstring injury, a potential penalty opportunity missed. “In this moment the referees are not the referees. I think the VAR should change their name because 'video assistant referee', that's not true. It should be VR, video referees, because they are the referees, they are the assistant. It is strange because you see the referees on the pitch and they are not the referees, they are the assistant referees. The other guys in [Stockley Park], they are the ones that make the big decisions in the game.” It is also being rumoured that the “being rude” for which he was booked with a yellow card was because Mourinho went to the Southampton dugout and tried taking a look at their tactics.

  10. 2020 is probably going to be the biggest year for blockbuster games, as many awaited titles are going to release for the current generation while we will also see new console launch towards the end of the year. This means many games will launch for both consoles and even work via backwards compatibility. However, just because a new generation of consoles is around the corner, it doesn't mean we won't be getting new games this year. In fact, 2020 is packed with games that may just define the current generation of gaming. 1. Final Fantasy VII Remake © Square Enix Platform(s): PS4 (Timed exclusive) Release date: March 3, 2020 It has been a long time since the fans of the series have been wanting to get a remake of the seminal RPG Final Fantasy 7. The game is being remade with modern graphics, updates mechanics and real-time combat. The game will also be split up as full-game-sized episodes. 2. Doom Eternal © Bethesda Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch Release date: March 20, 2020 The game was delayed for unknown specific reasons but the sequel to the 2016 reboot game is coming in March 2020. Developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, Doom Eternal will bring familiar gameplay, epic battles and new demons to fight in the upcoming sequel. 3. Resident Evil 3 Remake © Capcom Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One Release date: April 3, 2020 Capcom is finally remaking the highly requested Resident Evil 3 where we will encounter the iconic villain Nemesis from the series. If the game is going to be anything like the remake of Resident Evil 2, we can expect this classic to be awesome as well. The game originally released in 1999 and it will be interesting to see Capcom's modern version of the game. 4. Cyberpunk 2077 © CD Projekt Red Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One Release date: April 16, 2020 We've already seen what the game looks like and the game is being made by none other than renowned developers CD Projekt Red. It is based in a futuristic city where you get to play as your custom character and explore the dense city from a first-person perspective. The game features high-tech weapons, a day and night cycle, and our favourite Keanu Reeves as a character. 5. The Last of Us Part 2 © Naughty Dog Platform(s): PS4 Release date: May 29, 2020 The first part is unequivocally considered as one of the games of this decade and the sequel of this franchise has been awaited ever since the original released for the PlayStation 3. From what we have seen, survival in the post-apocalyptic world is still the main themes of the game but the franchise shines in telling stories that are emotionally impactful. We can't wait to see what the game hold for us when it eventually launches in May this year. 6. Halo Infinite © 343 Industries Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X Release date: Holiday 2020 While the Halo franchise has been away from almost four years, Halo Infinite is going to be the next game in the franchise. It isn't really a direct sequel to Halo 5 but the game is expected to have MMO gameplay mechanics and more of a sandbox theme. The game is not exactly a linear story like previous installments which makes this game a bit more exciting than expected. 7. Watch Dogs: Legion Platform(s): Xbox One, PS4, PC, Release date: TBC 2020 © Ubisoft The game was revealed last year where it is set in the post-Brexit city of London. The game has been delayed due to a change in Ubisoft's strategy for future games, but we will see it launch sometime in 2020. The game comes with a unique mechanic where you can play as any NPC in the game. You can play as a teenager, or even as a grandmother. The possibilities are unlimited and each NPC comes with unique abilities you can use to your advantage. View the full article
  11. If you've never heard of the French acoustic engineering company called Devialet, then you're either not into sophisticated audio equipment or you're not the kind who'd spend freaking Rs 1.3 lakh on a speaker. Either way, I won't blame you, but I'd like to introduce a fantastic piece of technology today. Meet, the 'Phantom Reactor 900' by Devialet. A tiny speaker that literally packs a surprising amount of punch. It's one of those speakers that'll make you appreciate the music that you're listening to. The folks over at Devialet let me borrow a Phantom Reactor for a couple of weeks and here's what I think about it - © MensXP Tiny Alien Egg From The Future! As you can see, the Devialet Phantom Reactor looks like a tiny alien egg. Not going to lie, I've never seen a speaker so pretty that I don't even feel like tossing it off aside unlike most other speakers that I have. It's something that you'd want to keep at the forefront like a showpiece. I got the Matte Black colour variant of the speaker to use, but it also comes in an "Iconic White" colour, which has a glossy surface. I would, any day, prefer the white variant over this one, but that's just me. © MensXP Although the overall footprint of the speaker is small, it's surprisingly heavy. It's over 4kgs, which is why I'd say it's not exactly portable. I mean, you can unplug it and carry it around in your house or to your backyard, but it's not ideal to be carried outside. It doesn't have a battery too, which means it'll always be hugging a power outlet. Overall, I'd say it's one of the most beautiful looking speakers out there. If you have a minimal setup at your home, then the Phantom Reactor would blend in seamless without sticking out like a sore thumb. The iconic egg-shaped design of its big brother, Phantom, adds a lot of personality to it. It looks straight out of a sci-fi movie, to be honest. © MensXP Impressive Sound The Phantom Reactor looks cool and all, but what about the sound quality? Well, it's fantastic. In fact, it's loud and exquisite, to be precise. Yes, that's how I'd put it. I was blown away by the output coming out such a small package. I mean, who'd have thought a small speaker like this would piss off my neighbours? It's one thing to listen to music, but it's a completely different experience to feel it. The Phantom Reactor will make you feel the music. Be it underground music, a mainstream EDM rave track or a pop title, the speaker sounds phenomenal. The bass response is the first thing that stands out. It's also a lot of fun to look at the bass drivers wobble. Here, take a look - via GIPHY The bass is super smooth and it leaves a kind of impact that no other speakers have been able to match, at least for me. Playing titles like Ricko James' "A Samurai's Death" or "Moon Face" that sends waves across the drivers is truly a sight to behold. What's interesting about the speaker is that there's no vibration on the speaker's body or its surroundings. You won't feel a thing if you touch the speakers, which is quite impressive. Besides the bass, there's another driver that handles the mids and the highs. The output for that comes from the grille on the front and it's said to output sound in a three-dimensional form. See that fancy grille on the front? Yes, that's it. I don't think it handled the whole 360-degree output very well, but if you place it appropriately in the room, then it'll fill very easily. It's all about the placement. © MensXP You can also choose to pair two of them and have a stereo effect. But that'll, of course, cost you a lot of money. But hey, good audio is expensive. There aren't a lot of speakers out there that'll make you feel like you're in a concert hall. It has a 900W peak power, after all. Connectivity The Phantom Reactor comes with an app that can be used to connect and lay music. You can use it as a Bluetooth speaker or sync it to a local network and play it via AirPlay, Spotify Connect or UPnP. There's a 3.5mm jack for input too in case you want to use that. The Phantom Reactor has touch-sensitive controls on the top and you'll be prompted to use these while setting up. You can also just tap the Bluetooth button to pair on the go, and that's the easiest way to connect to the speaker and play music. The Devialet app also works well, but for some reason, it asked me to set up the speaker every time I closed and opened the app again. © MensXP The setup process, mind you, takes quite a bit of time, so it's quite annoying to see it happen all the time. The companion app definitely needs some work, but otherwise, I really like the UI and the way it lets you control everything. The Final Say So, is the Phantom Reactor worth buying? Well, in case you don't know, the Phantom Reactor costs Rs 1,29,000 in India. Yes, that's Rs 1.3 lakh, which makes it one of the most expensive speakers that you can buy in the country. Assuming that you're willing to splurge that much on a speaker, I'd say you won't regret it. © MensXP Powerful and punchy bass is Phantom Reactor's forte and it'll truly make you feel like you're in a concert hall if you turn the volume all the way. It'll truly change house parties for you, and you'll never want to go back to normal speakers again. The Phantom Reactor looks fantastic and sounds incredibly good. Save for a couple of minor issues with the app, I'd say it's a damn good speaker. Buy it, if you want to feel and experience the song instead of just listening to it. View the full article
  12. A lot of places across the globe saw massive uncontrollable wildfires. These wildfires also made a lot of people evacuate their houses and caused a lot of destruction to the wildlife and eventually, death of animals. In the Australia wildfire that is still not under control, hundreds of koalas died and hundreds are still in danger, nearing death every day. Volunteers, along with the fire department of the affected places, tried to save as many wildlife and animals as possible. Recently among other surfaced videos on the internet from the wildfires, this one caught everyone's attention. IFS Susanta Nanda took to her Twitter to share a video of a baby bear that was rescued from the fire and refused to leave the person behind who saved him. Watch the video here: Angels are ordinary people with god's power. A baby bear refuses to leave the angel who rescued it from forest fireâºï¸ pic.twitter.com/5sgsiNCtf5 — Susanta Nanda IFS (@susantananda3) December 18, 2019 Nanda shared the video writing, “Angels are ordinary people with god's power. A baby bear refuses to leave the angel who rescued it from a forest fire.” In the video, one can see the baby bear hugging the rescuer's leg and he is clinging to his leg so tightly that one can almost tell just from looking that the baby bear is thanking the rescuer for saving its life. The rescuer is seen loosening the baby bear's grip but the bear runs back to him. The video is heartwarming and shows how the wildfires have disturbed the wildlife. The volunteers are also lauded by the netizens on the internet for their kindness and for making heroic efforts. View the full article
  13. “Hum aapki khubsoorti ka raaz hai, aapke sarr ka permanent taj hai,” - yes, the narrator is talking about your hair and the very quirky voiceover by Vijay Raaz, in the beginning, sets the whole mood for Bala, and you are assured that what you have signed up for is not some half-baked dish. Amar Kaushik's new movie, which highlights the ordeal of a prematurely-balding young man, asserts on how our society is obsessed with one's appearance and almost neglects everything else, irrespective of how one is from the inside. Interestingly, the movie kills two birds with one stone as it's not only talking about the woes of a man who has lost his hair at the age of 25 but also targets the unhealthy obsession with fair skin, particularly for women. From attacking age-old, bizarre 'solutions' that help you make your hair grow back (like applying cow dung on your head!) to how fairness creams are being sold by luring darker-skinned people, the movie touches all aspects of our society's obsession with 'looking beautiful', without paying heed to the cost it comes at. © Maddock Films Ayushmann Khurrana, who we know by now has a knack of picking out-of-the-box scripts, shines bright once again in Bala. He is the perfect fit for a script like this, as his character is convincing and relatable. A man consumed by self-loathing and his continuous hair-loss makes him even more miserable and he desperately looks for a permanent solution to get back the perfect hair that he had in his childhood. How would you react if you were the hottest person in the school because of your hair and cut to the present, you are struggling to keep a lush mane on your head. It's pretty common knowledge that men are obsessed with their hair and premature balding is a subject which was neglected earlier but now, the movie is trying to create a healthy discussion around this matter © Maddock Films Khurrana adds a certain vulnerability to the character and makes a point to convey the message with some well-written dialogues in the movie. In the movie, Bala falls in love with a TikTok sensation Pari (Yami Gautam) who is only obsessed with looking good all the time (in a way, the movie also attacks the whole social media culture). Following a failed attempt to tell Pari the truth about his wig, the two get married and when Pari discovers the truth, her reaction is just epic. Truly, Yami has done a brilliant job and you will end up feeling mighty impressed by her work. © Maddock Films As I mentioned earlier, the movie has also dealt with how our society tends to look down upon darker-skinned women. In the movie, it's through Bhumi Pednekar's character, Latika that the director touches upon this much-talked-about, but often neglected issue in our society. Bhumi doesn't believe in outer beauty but focuses on the idea of accepting the real you. But somewhere, I feel the movie had more potential in terms of showing the predicaments faced by the dark-skinned people in our country. Well, I cannot really complain here since the movie is about premature balding and still, they have tried to incorporate this issue. The movie boldly attacks the idea of using fairness creams that promote the concept of fairness being equivalent to being beautiful. © Maddock Films All the three leads have given their messages loud and clear but it's always the supporting cast that helps the lead actors shine. In Bala, we have an ensemble cast that includes Saurabh Shukla, Abhishek Banerjee, Seema Pahwa, and Javed Jaffrey. They help in bringing the extra laughs and have given justice to their roles and somewhere, without them, the movie wouldn't have been this interesting. © Maddock Films Now, moving to technicalities, the movie's music and score blends perfectly well and glides smoothly with the narrative of the movie. It has been shot pretty well and there are no such bumpy rides in the film. To sum it up, Bala is a light-hearted comedy that hits the bullseye with the message being loud and clear, which is to accept the real you and overcome the fear of body shaming. Takla, Nata, Mota, Patla, Gora, Kala are just tags and they don't define the real you. Bala is a must-watch indeed and I strongly recommend you to check it out at the earliest. View the full article
  14. Recently, President Ram Nath Kovind, in a kind gesture, paid attention to a policewoman who fell and had apparently twisted her ankle during an award function in the Capital. According to the PTI report, the cop was standing in front of the dais at Vigyan Bhawan during the first National CSR Awards function in the city, when she collapsed while the national anthem was playing. Subsequently after the anthem was over, President Kovind walked down from the dais along with Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs Nirmala Sitharaman, and Union Minister Anurag Thakur to attend to the cop. Soon, the video of the incident went viral on social media. Check out the video here: #WATCH A woman security personnel deputed at National Corporate Social Responsibility Awards event collapsed during playing of National Anthem, today.President Kovind, FM Nirmala Sitharaman & MoS Finance Anurag Thakur came down the stage to inquire about her health. #Delhi pic.twitter.com/HUSvzkizHu — ANI (@ANI) October 29, 2019 Besides, President Kovind also offered the policewoman a bottle of water while having a brief conversation with her. Usually, the president leaves the venue soon after the national anthem gets over but this noble gesture of his was loved by the audience, who lauded him with applause as he walked out from the venue, stated the news report. VIP culture still exists in India and despite that, such kind gesture, which was both surprising and heartwarming, is totally worth appreciating. View the full article
  15. If there was an award for someone who, even at the age of 62, can nail any silhouette, trend or prints right, it has to be the ageless actor Anil Kapoor. This actor defies age with his suave style and gives us enough reasons to look 'Jhakaas'. He recently caught our attention and we couldn't help but notice the way he layers his outfit each time.

  16. Elon Musk, are you doing okay, buddy? Everything good? You know, you can always talk to professionals about your addiction, your addiction to memes. Yep, it's no secret that our favourite billionaire may have developed a little bit of an obsession with memes recently and that too, memes involving him. Everyone loves having a good laugh and Elon probably is just making sure to keep everyone happy, and it's honestly great to see him make jokes at his expense. Just a few days ago, he blessed us with this piece of art. Oh hi lol pic.twitter.com/9WvbtTHoxS — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 26, 2019 Now, he's posted another meme involving himself and it's honestly the true face of horror. Take a look.

  17. Akshay Kumar never ceases to amaze us with all the outrageous things he does. He's the ultimate stuntman of Bollywood and well, his stunts are now even escaping the big screen to real-life. He can set any stage or runway on fire just because it's him, but yesterday, he decided to make things a little more literal. By now, everyone has probably seen a literally lit Akshay Kumar walking down the ramp in a suit that was on fire. Literally, all fired up for my association with @PrimeVideoIN's THE END (working title). Trust me, this is only the beginning ð@JSalke @vikramix @Abundantia_Ent pic.twitter.com/BL2PS4iJPQ — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) March 5, 2019 Akshay Kumar is honestly the only person in the world who would light himself on fire to promote a show, and the only explanation is that he's Akshay Kumar. This fiery stunt obviously got even better - and of course lit - reactions and jokes online and his wife Twinkle Khanna decided to start it off. Crap! This is how I find out that you decided to set yourself on fire ! Come home and I am going to kill you-in case you do survive this! #GodHelpMe https://t.co/K7a7IbdvRN — Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) March 5, 2019 The man's not afraid of fire, but he's still afraid of something much more scarier.

  18. Neymar Jr., the world's most expensive footballer, may have been ruled out for 10 weeks because of a metatarsal injury, but that didn't stop him from celebrating his birthday in the most epic (and fashionable) way possible. He wore a red suit, layered impeccably and accessorized with a hat. © Instagram The fact that he's truly fashion forward was proved by his choice of outfit and the way he accessorized them. Who in the world would have thought of using one's crutches as a fashion accessory? He just did that by carrying crutches that matched the colour of his outfit. © Instagram © Instagram Coming to footwear, he wore a pair of Jordans by Nike that had his name and birthday written on them.

Get well soon, Neymar!
  19. Ten years is a long, long time. That much time can change your life for the better or for the worse, but thankfully, for Rahul Jadhav, it was the former. He went from being an autorickshaw driver, struggling to make ends meet on a salary of â¹200 to becoming the mayor of a city, and now his life is changing drastically. The 36-year-old has now been declared the mayor of the city of Pimpri-Chinchwad at the PCMC headquarters in Maharashtra. Twitter Since he has faced a lot of hardships, he wants to do everything in his power to help people in similar situations. While talking to The Indian Express, he said, “I know the pain of ordinary people like autorickshaw drivers. During my tenure as the mayor, I will work for the upliftment of the poor.” For five years, he used to drive a six-seater autorickshaw in Chikhli, Bhosari and Moshi areas. Then, he tried out farming as an alternative job, but soon shifted back to driving to earn a liveable wage. But, things got better in 2007 when he joined the MNS. Soon after that, he was elected to the PCMC on an MNS seat. Twitter Jumping to 2017, he joined BJP and was elected from the Jadhavwadi area by a small margin of 3,000 votes. Now, he will serve one year as the mayor of the industrial city of Pimpri-Chinchwad.
  20. We hate them. They are our greatest enemies. Sometimes, we even wish for them to disappear from our lives. But, we also love them so much that we're ready to turn the world upside down if someone dares to mess with them. There are no points for guessing that I am talking about our siblings. I am sure I am not alone in getting jealous of them, assuming they had things easy in life. But, in reality, they were the ones who actually struggled throughout their lives. They always tried to push themselves, not only to prove to their parents that they are worth something, but to also set an example for us to follow. And one of India's leading comedians, Bhuvan Bam's story only reiterates the same. Instagram Recently, in a post shared by Humans of Bombay on Instagram, Bhuvan Bam who is known for 'BB Ki Vines', opened up about his brother and his dream of becoming a pilot. “My brother was always adored by everyone in school and at home. We all wanted him to become a pilot someday…even though it took a lot of money – my parents were ready to do anything to watch him fly,” the post read. In the post he mentioned how his superman brother had to struggle so much to fulfill his dream. After his brother, Aman, met with an accident and injured his knee cap, Bhuvan and his family feared and that his brother will give up on his dream. While, he was recovering, people started throwing comments on him. Aman couldn't handle the pain and the harsh words and took to alcohol. Instagram On one hand where people were appreciating his success, the same people were busy criticizing his brother's so called “failures”. How can we forget, commenting on other's “failure” come as naturally to some as breathing! But, he didn't give up. “Frustrated with these taunts, he eventually snapped and decided to prove himself. He quit drinking, picked up the pieces and started working as the ground staff for an airline. But he never gave up on his dream of becoming a pilot.” The post further read, “I've always been proud to call Aman my brother…but after the way he's turned his life around, I'm in complete awe of him. For someone who has had to give up on his dream and build himself back up all over again, he can't be labeled as anything but a hero – and now he can fly too! He's most definitely Superman!” “My brother was always adored by everyone in school and at home. We all wanted him to become a pilot someday… even though it took a lot of money––my parents were ready to do anything to watch him fly. One evening, after he was back from flight school, he decided to go out with his friends. But he wasn't back by midnight and somehow we just knew that he had gotten into an accident. Right then a car pulled up with my brother inside––his knee cap was broken and bleeding so we rushed him to the hospital. We were told that his recovery was going to take a long time. While I was terrified that he would have to give up on his dream, I had never felt so thankful that my brother had somehow survived. Because of his recovery time, he had to stay at home and go for physiotherapy while watching his friends become pilots. I don't think anyone's witnessed the amount of pain he has gone through––it was easy for people to throw comments like 'Ab Aman kya karega?' But I saw the tears that those comments caused. He couldn't handle the pain of losing everything that he had built himself up for––he turned to alcohol. At this point, my career had taken off, and while everyone was calling to congratulate my father for my successes, they always mentioned my brother's so called “failures”—why do people always find the need to compare? Frustrated with these taunts, he eventually snapped and decided to prove himself. He quit drinking, picked up the pieces and started working as the ground staff for an airline. But he never gave up on his dream of becoming a pilot. In fact, he worked twice as hard. The universe finally listened and he found out about a vacancy for an airline and applied for it. He cleared all his exams, went for the training again and finally got the position! We celebrated with a pizza party at home––it was the best night ever! I've always been proud to call Aman my brother...but after the way he's turned his life around, I'm in complete awe of him. For someone who has had to give up on his dream and build himself back up all over again, he can't be labeled as anything but a hero––and now he can fly too! He's most definitely Superman!" A post shared by Humans of Bombay (@officialhumansofbombay) on Jun 24, 2018 at 5:30am PDT Honestly, we don't just get orders, comparison, be-my-slave days or hand-me-downs from our elder brothers or sisters; we often get life lessons and inspiration from them, which no other teacher in this world can ever give us.
  21. As the final whistle blew in Volgograd, the England fans breathed a sigh of relief as they picked up their first victory at a World Cup since 2010. Fans rejoiced in the streets of London and why not? They had just witnessed England win at a World Cup for the first time in 8 years with a genuinely praiseworthy performance. © Reuters Although England fans had to wait until the 91st minute of the match before roaring, it was their captain Harry Kane they really rooted for as he led from the front and headed in the winner. In a team devoid of “superstars”, Harry Kane, owned the show against Tunisia and showed exactly why he's one of the best strikers in the world right now. Kane – The Predator Having scored 30 goals in the Premier League in the season gone by, Harry Kane serves as the only real goal scoring outlet that England can consistently rely on. As pundits decipher the various facets of his game, it was his biggest quality on display against Tunisia, his tenacity. On a day when England's finishing was extremely woeful and his hold up play, surprisingly suspect, he realized that set plays served as his best chance to score on the day. © Reuters What followed was the perfect execution of training ground set pieces. Kane wasn't the first to react on both the corners that resulted in goals, but his predatory instincts meant that he found himself unmarked when the ball eventually fell to his feet. Such game intelligence was previously credited to Thomas Muller who desperately fell short against Mexico. © Reuters Neither did Gabriel Jesus or Kylian Mbappe do enough in their first matches. However, Kane's display against Tunisia proved that great strikers don't necessarily need to have the best of games. Rather, it is their penchant to draw goals from unlikely situations which puts them among the best. Combine Kane's tenacity with his finishing, passing and physical abilities and we have a textbook striker who will prove to be one of the best for many years to come. Kane – The Leader While the technical aspects of Kane's game are undoubtedly brilliant, it is something far more intangible that is likely to make him a footballing immortal. His passion and desire to lead a team and see them through really sets him apart. © Reuters His discipline and regimen with his club have regularly been lauded and it is that level of dedication and focus that he brings to this team. And the result was there to witness. The entire team rallied behind their captain and pounced on him as England broke the deadlock. Subsequently, the vanity of such a moment did not consume him as he caught the game by the scruff of the neck and scored the winner just when his team needed him most. In the days preceding the game, Kane arrogantly proclaimed that he wished to emulate Ronaldo's hat-trick in his first game. Given how unforgiving the media has been to him this season, it seemed like a reckless statement to make. However, he scored a brace, and came very close to achieving that feat which in itself is a massive statement of intent. With such a high performance benchmark, expectations from Kane are very high, but with such talent and self-belief, few doubt that he could emerge as one of the stars of this World Cup.
  22. Throughout our childhood, we were told that we should always obey our elders and listen to everything they say, without questioning them. But, we guess sometimes it's ok to listen to children and follow their footsteps too. Because it's children, who unknowingly teach us some of the greatest lessons of life, which even learned people are not able to at times. I am sure in every school, there was a good 15 to 20 minutes dedicated to morning assemblies where we all used to sing the national anthem and on special occasions 'Saare Jahan Se Acha'. I still remember that there was a particular line, “Mazhab nahi sikhata aapas mein bair rakhna.” (Religion does not teach us to fight amongst ourselves.) © twitter representation This young kid taught us the real meaning of that line and what being secular truly means. A twitter user named Rohan recently shared the story of his daughter innocently combining Hinduism and Islam. He wrote, “My daughter just said that she needs to do the namaz. She bent down in proper Muslim prayer form and started chanting the Gayatri mantra, because that's the only prayer she knows.” My daughter just said that she needs to do the namaz. She bent down in proper Muslim prayer form and started chanting the Gayatri mantra, because that's the only prayer she knows. — Rohan (@rohansonalkar) 9 June 2018 This kid's gesture melted the internet's heart and people started sharing similar stories from their childhood. She is the true Indian: she holds up the mirror for all of us. I pray that she remains like this all her life. Heaven's choicest blessings to her. https://t.co/2o0KHmRhT6 — Debiprasad Mishra (@DebiprasaMishra) 10 June 2018 In a world full of hatred, this gives a hope that the at least the kids are being raised the right way.ð https://t.co/bluce37hBa — Niket Sinha (@niketsinha) 11 June 2018 How adorable! Sometimes it's the children who teach us what we need to know.

Gupta (@KrAbhinavGupta) 11 June 2018 U know what I seriously did the same during #Ramzan when I was almost 8. Wore Mummy's black dupatta and chanted - Om Namah Shivay as it was Shivratri dat day. I clearly remember God bless the little doll.. I got reminded of my childhood ð — Swati Sachdeva (@swati_aap) 10 June 2018 I'm somewhat similar to your daughter...Take the name of Allah and reads Hanuman Chalisa coz that is what I know... Have been doing this past 7 years so now for me God is just one who resides in heaven so whatever name we take if ur intention is right it will definitely be heard — Mohini (@93mohini) 11 June 2018 If only everyone learned from this kid's innocent and wonderful gesture, the world will be a better place to live in.
  23. Changing names on social media or taking their partners' names isn't a big deal for most of us. In fact, after marriage most women do that, isn't it? But, when Sonam Kapoor changed her name to 'Sonam K Ahuja' on her social media platforms, everyone lost their minds. Many even trolled her for calling herself a feminist, when eventually she took up her husband Anand Ahuja's last name. Sonam Kapoor Sonam Kapoor Ahuja Sonam K Ahuja Sonamakapoor Poor girl. So confused what to call herself now to fit feminist standards. pic.twitter.com/UCRCYGQv5l — Deepika Bhardwaj (@DeepikaBhardwaj) May 10, 2018 . Ohh so ... A feminist changed her last name ... Why ? Is it woman empowerment ? — मलà¤à¤ ð¦ (@kuldeepkarwasr7) May 9, 2018 First of all, people really need to get a good dictionary to understand the true meaning of the term 'feminism'. And second of all, trolling someone for their decisions regarding their personallives isn't cool at all. In fact, Sonam herself addressed all those trolls and reportedly said, “If people don't understand the concept of feminism, they need to go online and look at the description. And how do you know Anand has not changed his name?” Twitter She further said, “I am a true feminist. I believe in my choice. My husband or his family have not asked me to do anything. I have decided to do it myself. I never asked my husband to do it. He did it himself.” Instagram While, the internet continued to troll her, we were more concerned about what she said about Anand changing his name. So, we tapped into our inner Sherlock and searched his profile and voila! Anand just proved to the whole world what equality in any relationship truly means and earned our respect as well. Just like Sonam, Anand too changed his name and added Sonam's name to his. So his profile now reads 'Anand S Ahuja'. Instagram In case you're confused and thinking that it can be the initial letter of his father, Sunil Ahuja's name too, you're not alone. We thought the same, but Sonam kind of cleared the confusion with her Instagram story. Instagram The same Twitter that once mocked Sonam, was clearly impressed with Anand and let's just say he's set the benchmark really high for all the men out there. Anand Ahuja just added Sonam's name to his! Okay is this a benchmark?

  25. It takes a lot from an actor to make his own place in Bollywood without a godfather. Ali Fazal is one of those few names who has made their own path, faced the challenges and made it big without any strings. In an industry where actors are still struggling to get a grip on the nuances of acting, this man has done some exceptional films and has already got a major fan following around the globe. Being in Bollywood, which is very much dominated by a few names, it's stunning to see how Ali is making his way up the ladder with his talent. This is what makes him a shining example of the quote 'where there is a will, there is a way.' Looking at last year, we can say that it has been all rainbows and butterflies for Ali who has upped his career graph by becoming a part of some major projects. And the most noticeable one is his recent movie 'Victoria & Abdul' with veteran actress and Oscar winner, Dame Judi Dench. While it takes ages for actors to establish themselves overseas, he has not only worked with an exceptional actor but also became the first Indian actor to get featured in an international biopic. Even though the movie didn't do wonders at the box office in India, his stellar performance was raved about. Ali sure is a happy man these days. From a booming career to being in a happy relationship with his lady love Richa Chadha, he is living the life one always imagines. What's remarkable is that he wants to find interesting projects but not get typecast, a thing that many actors forget while signing movies. At present, he is shooting for his next Hollywood project. Clearly, he is making it big like a boss and there is no stopping him. So today, we bring you some never-before-seen exclusive pictures of him by ace London based photographer Sinbad Phugra. Shot across London's nook and corners and bustling streets, the photos introduce us to different shades of Ali that prove he is the next big thing. Check out these pictures: © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra © Sinbad Phugra
