  1. While revamping utility and public structures has been the need of the hour, the New Delhi Railway Station can't be left untouched for long. Just a month ago, Mathura Railway Station got an absolutely new look and now it's time for Delhi to literally shine. The station was given an artsy feel, rich in culture and heritage and now every time we're catching a train from there, we'd be afraid to miss it, because it's done up quite elaborately and beautifully. The station building looks quite vibrant with some colourful patterns strewn across, with wall art and geometrical designs all over the ceilings. It really looks like we're amidst a colourful little cultural village. The station has also upgraded its public facilities like LED lights, escalators and LCD displays, all over. © Twitter The station will be equipped with solar panels for deriving energy from them and it'll be kept clean throughout. Well, Delhi isn't the only station that has been revamped. Apart from Mathura, there is also Haridwar, Jaipur and Lonavla. They've all been beatified and upgraded just as Delhi and Mathura. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the development of the station: बदलता भारत, बदलतॠरà¥à¤²à¤µà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤§à¤¾à¤¯à¥à¤, सà¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° सà¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¯ सॠभरा नठदिलà¥à¤²à¥ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ नया à¤à¤à¤°à¥à¤·à¤ रà¥à¤ª यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ विशà¥à¤µà¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤°à¥à¤¯ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¹à¤¸à¤¾à¤¸ à¤à¤°à¤¾ रहा हà¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/rUiirbwjDj — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 14 March 2019 The new look of the Railway station went down pretty well with most people and they took to Twitter to praise the efforts made by the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation. The feeling!!!

Or you can just check out these pictures here: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for revamping and developing such structures, will invest about Rs 7,500 crore, for redeveloping close to 50 railway stations across India. Simultaneously with that, they will also have a beatification drive alongside, which will entail paintings and art along the premises of the station. We're glad the Indian Railways are making an effort to revamp old stations and after airports, this was pretty much the need of the hour.
  2. Football is not just a sport but an emotion which flows throughout the veins of its fans. No matter if a player has retired, he continues to be in the hearts of his fans. Moreover, a legend returning to his home club is a different feeling altogether. May 26th 2019, will mark the comeback of two legends of the footballing world. One being the best football manager the world has ever seen, in Sir Alex Ferguson, and the other being the best number seven Manchester United has ever had, David Beckham. David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Jesper Blomqvist join our Treble Reunion squad! See them at Old Trafford on 26 May: https://t.co/hlG9ZC18ol#Treble99 midfield: â ð¯ pic.twitter.com/YrklMdsdxn — Manchester United (@ManUtd) March 14, 2019 The two will reunite maybe for a final game at Old Trafford as Manchester United legends team up to face Bayern Munich legends in a charity event. Beckham, in a recent interview with the club website, expressed his excitement for making a return at Old Trafford and playing under Sir Alex Ferguson in the Treble Reunion game. 'I'm so excited to be going back to Old Trafford in May. 1999 was such a massive year for us so recreating that moment is going to be really special. To be back together as a squad and to be managed by the boss again is huge. Huge for us and for the fans; I can't wait.” Becks is ð Reunited with Sir Alex and the lads to help raise money for @MU_Foundation! #Treble99 pic.twitter.com/VWbHRkzUDM — Manchester United (@ManUtd) March 14, 2019 We fans count ourselves to be extremely lucky that we will get to witness the game-play of Sir Ferguson once again. His tactical prowess will be on full display when they take on the Bayern Veterans. Sources reveal that the former England captain will be accompanied by his Class of '92 colleagues Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt for this game. Other than this, Phil and Gary Neville will also join forces with Denis Irwin and Jaap Stam at the back, while the goal would be guarded by their iconic goalie, Peter Schmeichel. This match would be taking place on May 26th, exactly 20 years after United won the Champions League final against Bayern at Camp Nou in 1998/99 season, followed by Premier League and FA Cup titles, marking their best season of all time. © Reuters The proceedings collected would be donated as charity to Manchester United Foundation to 'improve confidence, life skills and employability' of the people in Greater Manchester. Though the match is around two weeks from now, the fans of the Red Devils are already buzzing over the return of DB7 and the rest of the iconic players of the past era. I would love to be part of this historic even that reminds us of the good olden days at Old Tramford.

  3. In the list of million names who turned rappers and started singing 'Apna Time Aayega' after watching Ranveer Singh's 'Gully Boy', there's a new name that got added today. The person we're talking about is WWE star John Cena, whose latest post has sent his and Ranveer's fans in a frenzy. © Excel Entertainment "Welcome to my Instagram. These images will be posted without explanation, for your interpretation. Enjoy." This is not us. This is John Cena's Instagram bio and let's just say he's never disappointed us, neither earlier nor today. Cena shared a still from 'Gully Boy' with Ranveer Singh's image and 'Apna Time Aayega' written on it. View this post on Instagram A post shared by John Cena (@johncena) on Mar 6, 2019 at 9:35pm PST We don't think this post needs any explanation, but we sure want to know what Cena's first reaction was after watching the movie (if he has seen it, that is). Given that Cena too is known for his incredible rapping skills, we hope they get into a rap battle soon. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, 'Gully Boy' is based on Mumbai's underground rap scenario and also stars Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi (as MC Sher) and Vijay Varma (as Moeen Bhai).
  4. Respawn Entertainment's 'Apex Legends' is currently enjoying its time as one of the most popular Battle Royale titles of all time. The game recently hit 50 million players worldwide, which clearly means it's making some noise in the industry. Now that 'Apex Legends' has established a place for itself in the industry, it's important that we turn our attention to the future and see what Respawn Entertainment is cooking for us. Will there be a new map? New legends to play with? Yes, there are a lot of burning questions, so, here's everything we know about the Apex Legends battle pass: Apex Legends Roadmap Respawn Entertainment has always been pretty optimistic about the title and it even revealed its year one roadmap for the game during its launch last month. Here below is a peek at the roadmap: © Respawn Entertainment Yes, 'Apex Legends' season one will begin this month and the first battle pass will be available to purchase. We still don't have an exact date, but an anonymous source claims that March 12 will be the big day. Every new season, as you can see, will bring a new weapon (hopefully multiple weapons), legends, loot, and a new battle pass each time. We think there will also be an option to buy an annual battle pass, although there's no official word on that just yet. If everything goes as per the plan, then we'll get a new season every three months, which means the players are in for a slew of content throughout the year. Battle Pass Contents In the official Apex Legends FAQ page, the developer has clearly mentioned that the Battle Pass will reward players with exclusive cosmetic items. From legends and weapon skins to character quips and banner poses, we're expecting to see an influx of rewards. You'll also get Apex Packs, which will give you a chance of earning more cosmetic items. © Twitter The FAQ page also makes it very clear that new legends will not be a part of the Battle Pass. That, in all honesty, does make a lot of sense as the legends are a more valuable commodity and you can't have too many legends like, say, the skins. That being said, we think you'll be able to buy the new legends with Apex Coins or even with Legend tokens. Speaking of new legends, there are some leaks which suggest that we'll see a new legend named 'Octane' with some impressive abilities like restoring health, deployable jump pad, and more. We don't have all the info yet, but this is what the new legend could look like - © Electronic Arts Will There Be New Challenges? Challenges are the crux of every successful Battle Royale games like 'Fortnite'. Incentivize your challenges with high-quality rewards, and you can have the players engaged in your game for a long time. And if 'Apex Legends' truly wants to go head-to-head with the likes of 'Fortnite', then challenges would be a good place to start. However, there's no indication that the 'Apex Legends' Battle Pass will have any challenges just yet. © Respawn Entertainment How Much Will The Battle Pass Cost Respawn has remained tight-lipped about the Battle Pass so far, so your guess is as good as ours. But we hope 'Apex Legends' will undercut Fortnite's Battle Pass, which costs a little less than $10.
  5. Majority of Indians residing within the geographic coordinates that map out the boundary of the subcontinent, fall under the category of medium to dark wheatish or “olive” skin tone. By most “English” or Western standards, we are the perfect specimen of “brown people”. While such demographic segregation and racism prevalent in the West aren't new to Indians, there is a painful truth to be experienced in the kind of off-handed racism that is practised within India, by Indians and for Indians. © Instagram The Indian subcontinent's collective blind love for the “fairer ones” is something all of us are aware of. For ages now, Indians have drooled over and craved for the lighter shades of skin tone one might find on those shade scales they proudly show off in TV commercials. However, while Indian women have had to suffer from and live under the constant scrutiny of old hags nagging them and lamenting over their “dark skin” colour for ages, they found solace in their grandmother's home remedies, that promised to lighten their skin and make them “look more desirable” as per the requirements of the Indian marriage market. © Instagram Enter commercialisation, and the home remedies were quickly replaced by magical tubes of modernised (albeit chemically formulated) “ubtan” recipes that had made their way to fancy fairness creams and lotions that thrived on women's insecurities and constant pressure to match up to the (unrealistic and cruel) social standards of beauty. The “fairness” furthering business opened a gold mine of money making opportunity that these fairness cream companies exploited for years. But things took a new turn when they made a discovery that would forever change how we saw the fairness cream industry. © Instagram Until the mid-2000s shaving creams and deodorants were the primary grooming products that were sold to men through commercial ads. However, the market study showed there was a solid opportunity of expanding men's grooming range, and soon, fairness products for men were launched. Dheeraj Sinha, chief strategy officer at Leo Burnett told QZ India that, “The men's fairness segment came about because almost one-third of users of women's fairness creams were men.” Even a Vice News report aired on HBO stated that around 60% of women and 10% of men say they use fairness products. © Instagram This led to a boom in the men's skin-care industry and as of 2017 the market grew by 40% and the industry was said to be worth around rupees 5,000 crores. That's not all, a 2015 research study by Nielsen showed that men got into the bandwagon because they believed that a fair complexion could improve their professional prospects. This only confirms that the “idea” of fair as handsome is both personal and is slowly making its way into people's reflection of themselves professionally. Yet, there also exist a lot of aware men who realise that companies are feeding on people's insecurities to cash in on more money and jump the success ladder. Bollywood actors such as Nandita Das, Kangana Ranaut and more recently Abhay Deol, have joined in to call out such companies and their products, and even fellow actors who endorse such brands and their skin whitening products. © Instagram However, since awareness is growing by the day, and more men (and women) continue to realise that they are being fooled by these companies and their products, brands are coming up with more cunning ways of selling their products to consumers. According to Sinha, “My sense is that brands will wake up to the new reality, and you will see propositions reworked around clearer skin (and) glow, rather than pure fairness,” and honestly we have already seen that happening lately. © Instagram It's disheartening to see how society's idea of “normal” and “beautiful” can disrupt people's perception of themselves, wherein they come to think of themselves as inferior to someone, merely because their skin is a shade or two darker than that of others around them. We often hear women say “love and accept yourself for who and how you are” and we hope men also follow this thumb rule and come to take pride in what has been given to them at birth. Trust us, women love that in a man, the ability to be comfortable and confident in their own skin.
  6. What were you doing when you were 16 years old? The majority of us were sitting in our rooms, doing 'important work' from 'research material' folder on our computers. But this 16-year-old proved that he is gifted with superhuman abilities and is somebody India can look up to in the coming years. Hailing from a small town in Uttar Pradesh, Saurabh Chaudhary proved his mettle at International Shooting Sports Federation World Cup, that took place in Delhi, when he created a world record of 245 points before eventually clinching the gold medal in 10m air pistol final. His stellar performance and incredible record helped clinch first Tokyo Olympics quota for India as well proving it to be the icing on the cake. © BCCL Where we are all in awe of Chaudhary's abilities and achievement, his national coach Samresh Jung saw it a long time coming. After his apprentice's incredible feat, Jung said, “He was shooting like he was always shooting at the senior level. Even with the crowd cheering and yelling, there were no slip-ups from him and he made a world record.” The thing that is a testament to the 16-years old potential is his incredible ability to concentrate. The prodigy's new coach Amit Sheoran claimed, ” Shooting 245 is not new for him. During training, he tries to hit more than 248 so that he doesn't feel that some score is big. It showed now that 245 is normal for him. Even in the qualifying, he tries to go beyond 590.” © BCCL Chaudhary's dominance can be showcased by the point difference between him and the Serbian silver medalist who bagged 239.3 points and second quota spot. “I knew I had a big lead but didn't bother about it. I just kept doing everything I do in practice. I don't think about a nine as well. Coaches train us for such situations and I keep doing that'' said Saurabh. The thing we're certain of is this potential mixed with hard work that Saurabh puts in will eventually lead India to glory on a stage where India has often underachieved. Next Abhinav Bindra? We think not. It's a new Saurabh Chaudhary. Remember the name.
  7. The much-awaited, extremely hyped up and super interesting 'Gully Boy' is all set to be our Valentine's Day treat, and since the movie has oversold itself and opened to rave reviews and packed houses at the Berlin Film Festival, it's natural to set our bar higher. Here are 4 things we are looking forward to witnessing in Zoya Akhtar's super ambitious movie: 1. Ranveer & Alia's Power-Packed Performances- This is the most obvious and our first and foremost reason to watch the movie. Ranveer has been very vocal about how he just couldn't resist this role and knowing that he is a closet rapper himself, this will be a good watch. Also, this has already been declared his career's best performance so far, so there's that as well. As for Alia, this actress never fails to surprise us with her powerful performance. 2. Zoya Akhtar's Brilliant Vision- Probably one of the most iconic directors this industry has witnessed. Zoya's storytelling has 'brilliance' written all over it and her personal style of including a 'slice of life' angle to it, is what makes the audience fall for her amazing narrative. 3. Platform For The Growing Rap Scene In India- India, for a while now, has been witnessing the burgeoning growth in the genre of Hip Hop and rap. This movie is a great platform to give centre stage to the wonderful voice of this particular form of music. Also, this will pave way for more similar movies, where our home-grown artists can get their due recognition. 4. The Music Is A Breath Of Fresh Air- Since the movie deals with the rap circle in India, it has also opened our up ears to a newfound sense of sound and music with this movie. It's already a big hit right now. In case you haven't watched the trailer yet, prepare yourself for some major awesomeness. The movie hits theatres on 14th February. If you are someone who is looking for a movie date this Valentine's Day, then this is your pick.
  8. While talking about trains, one thing that often pops up in our minds is Narendra Modi's long fetched promise of Bullet Trains. And guess what, he actually has kept it. Well, not exactly a Bullet Train but a desi version of it. Well, that is Train 18 aka Vande Bharat Express. With its Bullet Train-inspired design and super cool features, the driverless train will be flagged off by PM Modi on February 15 and will cover the route between New Delhi and Agra replacing the veteran Shatabdi Express. As per the results from the trial runs as of now, Train 18 can clock up a speed of over 180 kmph making it the fastest ever train of the Indian Railways. Being a desi product (Yes! Make In India, guys) and built at a cost of Rs 100 crore, this train is making Rs 88,000 crore India loaned from Japan seems like a total rip-off. According to a report by The Hindu, here are some of the cool features that the Vande Bharat Express comes packed with that really give it a futuristic feel. 1. Aerodynamically designed driver cabins at both ends for quicker turn-around at destinations 2. Alternate coaches are motorised to ensure even distribution of power and faster acceleration or deceleration 3. Regenerative braking system to save power © BCCL 4. Inter-connected, fully sealed gangways 5. Automatic doors with retractable footsteps 6. Onboard Wi-Fi and infotainment © Twitter 7. GPS-based passenger information system 8. Modular toilets with bio-vacuum systems 9. Rotational seats which can be aligned in the direction of travel (executive class) © Twitter 10. Roller blinds and diffused LED lighting 11. Disabled-friendly toilets 12. Emergency talk-back units to contact train crew 13. CCTVs in all coaches for safe and secure travel in numbers The report also mentioned that the approximate cost to build the train is around Rs 100 crore, and if the train runs at 200 kmph as per the report, then it sounds like a fairly decent deal. The makers of the train - Integral Coach Factory, Chennai is believed to have around five Train 18s in the pipeline and the time taken to conceive, design and develop the train is said to be around 18 months. All in all, Vande Bharat Express being a driverless train packed with other mind-blowing features is going to be an exceptional experience and we can't wait to get aboard.
  9. With the closing season of 'Game Of Thrones' almost here, Adidas has launched a collaboration of Ultra Boosts that have been inspired by the iconic show. The Game Of Thrones x Adidas pack was unofficially dropped this week and they clearly indicate the House they've been inspired from or the character. Here are some of the most obvious pairs that fans have pointed out. Take a look: 1. The Night's Watch © HBO © adidas At the north point of Westeros, the Night Watch guards the seven kingdoms like the army guarding the borders of a country. The patrol the Great Wall wearing the thickest furry coats in black. The inspired shoes take a cue from their uniform to make a black upper prime knit upper surface and give a white sheen in the white mudguard, Boost midsole, and outsole that symbolize the never-ending snow in the North. A leather lace cage puts the shoe together which represents the leather armour of the Night Watch. 2. The House Of Lannister © HBO © adidas The Lannister sigil prides itself with a lion and a "Hear Me Roar" tag line and a confluence of gold and crimson. These indicators are clearly visible in this shoe. Take a look. The red primeknit is a marker of their house, and the three gold lines mark the wealthy reputation of the Lannisters that always makes them say: via GIPHY 3. The House Of Targaryen: Daenerys © HBO © adidas With white, cream and silver accents on the laces, lace cage, heel cup, and heel tag this shoe is probably the most elegant of the lot. Targaryen is considered the noblest House of the lot, their family has distinct features of pale skin and silver hair which are accounted for in this Ultra Boost. 4. The House Of Targaryen: Dragons © HBO © adidas The House of Targaryans: the former ruling House of Westeros' sigil is appropriated for this shoe. Their slogan, "Fire And Blood" is used both here and for Dany's Ultra Boosts. 5. The House Of Stark © HBO © adidas House Of Stark is the warden of the North and their sigil entails a grey direwolf on a white background. Black and grey that represent the house have been visibly used on the prime knit surface and touches of black on the lining, mudguard, Boost midsole, rubber outsole, heel cup, and their signature three stripes. The heel has a very significant and nostalgic tagline, "Winter Is Coming" because Winter is here, and people will die. via GIPHY 6. The White Walkers © HBO © adidas The White Walkers represent the destruction that is going to consume Westeros. The White Walkers are icy dead creatures that turn people into walking zombie-like digits that initiate destruction. For its Ultra Boost, ice blue is used on the prime knit surface, white Boost mid-sole and white rubber out-sole continue the theme with hints of black and the tagline, "Winter Is Here" to send a chill down your spine. via GIPHY

  11. It wouldn't be saying much if we tell you that Ranveer Singh has had one of the best years of his career so far in 2018. Actually, you know what, we just did. But anyhow, while last year was good, and we have a feeling that this year might just turn out to be better, but it is actually the next year which is screaming 'best' because Ranveer is set to star in his first ever biopic '83', which will release in 2020. Based on the life of India's legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, '83' has been garnering a lot of momentum lately ever since it finally received its date of release. From a stellar supporting cast to finally zeroing in on who would play coach to Ranveer Singh's Kapil Dev in the film, it seems like Kabir Khan directorial project is finally set to hit the floors after much delay. © BCCL So if the latest reports are to be believed, Pankaj Tripathi shall be seen training Ranveer Singh, who will be portraying Kapil Dev in the film. It has also been reported that Nawazuddin was approached for the role initially, but he declined the offer due to prior commitments. However, all we can say is that we are thrilled by this change of events because we feel this pairing is an absolute show stealer and the duo would set the screen on fire with their terrific acting skills and the freshness they bring to each of their characters. © Twitter Even when Ranveer and Pankaj recently met each other during a shoot, the pair couldn't stop praising each other's work. Later, Ranveer also shared his desire to work with Pankaj and suggested that a possibility might be in the works. View this post on Instagram Training begins... #83 #kapildev @ranveersingh @83thefilm #balwindersinghsandhu A post shared by Kabir Khan (@kabirkhankk) on Jan 12, 2019 at 3:14am PST More recently, the makers also announced that Punjabi singer-actor Ammy Virk is set to play Balwinder Singh Sandhu in the film, while another Bollywood Hungama report shared that, Sunny Kaushal, Harrdy Sandhu and Tahir Raj Bhasin have also been roped in for the film. With the film set to release on 10th April 2020, anticipation around the film is definitely running high amongst movie-goers and cricket fans alike.
  12. When you venture out to buy yourself a new smartphone, you know it's going to be a long day. With the market being flooded with a sea of options, it makes mobile shopping a Herculean task! But if a smartphone brand that you've loved, far and long- for it's high-end specifications and affordable prices- announces a new launch, you know you only have to pick the right colour that goes with your personality! And rejoice, mobile-shoppers, because OPPO has announced its new series and we are all damn excited to see what it brings home! OPPO We know how OPPO has been one of the most desirable smartphones in budget segments in India. Keeping up with the legacy of churning out the best specs at the best price, the Selfie Expert brings to the country a new series, which has done grandly worldwide! And according to the grapevine, this new launch would have an in-display fingerprint sensor at a cost less than Rs. 20,000! OPPO While OPPO has had a pretty tight stronghold in the offline markets for the past 5 years– and with a potential growth rise from 2.5% in 2016 to 5% in 2020, what else do we say?- , they aim to come out stronger and better to their online customers because "we are the world, we are the future". Everyone in the country has access to the Internet now, which means that not only are the consumers- US- getting more hands-on, easy access to newer products, but also have a fair amount of knowledge with respect to what to buy and what not. And like I said before, OPPO knows this and will never disappoint! OPPO We have seen in the past that OPPO gives full priority to its target audience, that is you and me, and does thorough research before launching new phones. And hence the phones keep getting better and better. The fact that we get a number of high-end technologies at prices that wouldn't burn a big hole in our pockets, is a testimony to the fact that they aim at improving user experiences. From improvised cameras in every newly launched smartphone to smarter charging solutions to suit the needs of us fast-paced millennials. So, let's just say that I cannot wait to get my hands on the new series! What about you?
  13. Apple's AirPod wireless headphones have been one of the firm's most successful products - and a much anticipated new version is in the works and expected to be launched in the first half of 2019. Patent filings suggest the company is pretty much ready with the design and mass production is just around the corner. Reports by DigiTimes and 9To5Mac indicate the new AirPods 2 are just on the way. Up till now, we've barely heard about the second generation earbuds and many expected Apple to launch them last year. According to 9To5Mac, a "Hey Siri" configuration tool found in Apple's latest iOS 12.2 beta suggests the new AirPods are coming soon. © 9To5Mac If Siri setup has AirPods inclusion, it means the second generation AirPods could bring in "Hey Siri" functionality. In this case, the audio processing shall be done by the AirPods itself, and not the connected iPhone. The new AirPods are expected to have a heart rate sensor, enabling tracking of fitness activities. Since the launch of the Apple Watch, the company has increased its focus on health tracking and slowly started integrating everything in the Health SDK. © Apple "If you zoom out into the future and you look back and you ask the question: 'What was Apple's greatest contribution to mankind?' It will be about health," Tim Cook said in a recent interview to CNBC. According to a fairly old report from Bloomberg, the new pair of earbuds are also going to be waterproof and house better Bluetooth connectivity than their predecessors, thanks to the inclusion of the W2 chip. The same chipset has also been used onboard the Apple Watch Series 3. © Apple Lastly, the AirPods 2 are expected to have wireless charging capabilities. Since the launch of the iPhone 8, Apple has committed itself to going completely wireless. Though, the company still hasn't been able to launch the AirPower mat that can charge multiple devices at once. Rumours suggest the brand could finally launch the AirPower mat along with the AirPods 2. Keep in mind, much of this is speculation and based on informal reports. There has been no official confirmation from Apple about the AirPods 2 development.

A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Sep 27, 2017 at 4:09am PDT With so many biopics lined up for this year, we sure are excited to catch them all on the big screen.
  16. For the bunch of us who love watching Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan's brilliant on-screen chemistry, there is some super good news! Rohit Dhawan, Varun Dhawan's brother is launching his own production company and according to some really awesome reports, the first movie to be produced under his banner will be none other than the remake of the iconic hit 'Coolie No. 1'. The star cast has reportedly already been decided with Alia and Varun, and Papa Dhawan will take the onus of directing the film, once again. © Twitter Remember 'Coolie No.1' though? Of course, you do. Anytime you get a chance to sing 'main toh rastein se jaa raha tha', you absolutely go gung-ho over it! Yes, the David Dhawan directorial film had Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead along with Shakti Kapoor, the late Kader Khan and the late Sadashiv Amrapurkar. Going by the cast, you'd know those were the hay days of the 90s era! © Tips Industries Limited Now, Varun wants to remake all of David's No.1 films including 'Hero No.1', 'Biwi No.1', 'Jodi No.1' and of course, 'Coolie No.1', and we're guessing all of them are going to be an absolute laugh riot! According to reports, the film is expected to start rolling sometime this year and we can't wait to watch Varun and Alia get into the good 'ol shoes of Govinda and Karisma respectively. © Twitter Earlier, another report stated that Sara Ali Khan was being considered to play the lead actress in the film, but eventually, David went along with Alia. Maybe because Alia and Varun have successfully been the Jodi No.1 with films like 'Student Of The Year', 'Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya' & 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya'. Here's hoping we see them together as Raju and Malti in the remake of 'Coolie No.1'.

  18. Netflix is releasing a super cool show called 'Selection Day' and we're waiting with bated breath for it to finally come out on the 28th of December, 2018. The show has a mix of some promising debutants along with seasoned and veteran actors like Ratna Pathak Shah, Mahesh Manjrekar and Shiv Pandit. We got an actual sneak peek of the show from the producer himself-Anil Kapoor. When I walked into the room to interview him about the show, I thought to myself - "wow, he doesn't age at all!" He was sitting tall, beaming with an innate yet fresh sense of self and I felt butterflies at the pit of my stomach. He asked me if I was feeling okay and I let him know about the nervousness I was drowning in. He immediately made a little joke and made me feel at ease, while I tried to reason the summation of the fact that I was interviewing someone I've grown up seeing on screen and, of course, one of the biggest Bollywood stars that exist today. © Netflix Moving past the untimely nervousness, we found a comfortable footing and started the interview about the new show on Netflix called 'Selection Day', which is an adapted version of Aravind Adiga's book by the same name. The series focuses on the journey of two brothers from a village who're forced to understand and play cricket by their cricket-fanatic father, to later be selected for Mumbai's under 19 cricket team. Along with Anil Kapoor, I was also joined by Karan Boolani, the creative producer of the series, to talk about the one thing that's dominating our screens at the moment- Over The Top Content (OTT), which comprises of content delivered over the internet without the involvement of multiple system operators. © Netflix Both Anil Kapoor and Karan Boolani are in favour of OTT content and believe it's the future for India. While conversing with Boolani, he emphasised on how the content was contained in television earlier and how it's become more global with these shows, that are a buffer away from viewing by anyone, anywhere. The audience, according to them, is a lot more malleable and attainable than it was before and of course, with that comes the global phenomena of connecting to every house and every individual on a more personal level. When asked if OTT content will affect the film industry or the market in any way, both strongly disagreed. "This is the future for India and somewhere, even the viewer feels empowered to watch where he wants, when he wants and what he wants and there is so much of content available that is great for today's consumer, making the competition even better and you work even harder so that you try to balance it and for us actors and producers it's a fantastic time to tell stories, so it's a great future for us", said Anil Kapoor. © Netflix The film industry definitely holds your attention in place when you see a movie for two hours or over. Whether the characters are relatable or not, you always come out with a sense of accomplishment of having absorbed a story that made you feel a certain way but with OTT content nowadays, there are characters that come forth in a string of stories that can grow on you and become much more relatable. Speaking more about the new show on Netflix- 'Selection Day', both Karan and Anil feel it's a coming of age story, where they've tried to do justice to make sure the theme of the series is well represented. From the dynamic that each character shares with one another to the way the story is carried out, everything has been taken care of flawlessly. © Netflix All in all, we're wishing great success for the show, which releases on the 28th of December and are also hoping to see Anil Kapoor in his new avatar producing top quality content for numerous others TV series, while others follow suit too!

  20. Last month Samsung showed off a brand new concept phone that has a foldable screen and closes just like a book. The current smartphone market has become extremely saturated and demands a unique offering. This is the core reason why brands have been trying new things like edge-to-edge displays, sliding cameras, and dual display setups. Dubbed the "Galaxy F" or "Galaxy Fold", it was shown-off for a very short period under dimmed lights to protect its design aspects. Samsung is calling its display technology "Infinity Flex" and claims it can be folded to fit inside a pocket. The display will measure 7.3-inch with a 1536 x 2152p resolution and 4.2:3 aspect ratio in an unfolded state. © LetsGoDigital Now, a recent report by a Korean market research group has perfectly detailed interesting bits of specs about Samsung's foldable smartphone. It is expected to have a total battery backup of 6000mAh and will consist of two batteries, one for each half of the chassis, and the suggested battery size combines the capacity of both batteries It will be powered by the Samsung Exynos 9820 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, depending on the market. Along with the beefy processor, it shall house 8GB of RAM along with 128GB internal storage. The handset is also expected to feature a dual 12MP primary camera setup paired with an 8MP front-facing selfie camera. © YouTube The report claims that all the information has been verified with the component suppliers and further adds it will have two cameras on the back with 12-megapixel sensors and an 8-megapixel on the cover. Suppliers of OLED screens, flexible printed circuit boards, and batteries are expected to benefit the most from the new form factors. Samsung is the leader in display technology and is expected to maintain supremacy over competitors like LG until 2020. © Reuters However, the cost of all this technology and flexibility is not going to be cheap. The phone will cost almost 70 percent more to make than the Galaxy S9+ at a whopping US$ 636.70 (Rs 45,500). The firm claims that it will carry a 65 percent markup and sell for a whopping US$ 1,800 (Rs 1,30,000). The price of foldable phones is expected to go down till US$ 1,300 (Rs 93,000) by 2022.

  21. Spotify is finally coming to India according to reports by Variety and Bloomberg. The story was confirmed by unnamed sources who detail that the streaming service has reached a settlement with major rights holders in India. It will enable the company to launch in the fastest growing music market in the world i.e. India, that has a population of 1.3 billion and potential 100 milling customers. Rumours suggest that Spotify will offer a trial period for full access which is normal than longer when compared to the company's 30-day period. Bloomberg notes that India's primary source for music streaming is YouTube and can be used for free. Spotify will face an uphill battle in India to make users pay for a streaming service. Spotify has faced major hurdles in getting music rights, as local record labels threatened the company from withholding rights as the company attempted to licence music directly from artists. These issues have now been resolved and Spotify will launch officially within the next six months. Spotify will also need to take various other languages into account before the launch. Spotify works with a credit card which only a small amount of the Indian population owns. It could also introduce gift cards in order to tackle this problem for Indian users. Spotify will be competing in India with other music streaming apps like Gaana, Saavn, Apple Music, Google Music, Youtube and Amazon Music. It indeed would be a massive opportunity for the company to launch in India, as the company's stock price is declining over the past three months and losing major money. Source: Variety

  25. For all those who laid their eyes on this quintessential beauty throwing a coy look at the camera, and found her charming her way into their hearts this noon, this is what we have to say to you. We know that much like the rest of the nation you've also found your latest celebrity crush in Sara Ali Khan. The teaser for Sara's debut movie 'Kedarnath' was released earlier today, and almost the entire nation was left hooked to their screens in rapt admiration. The teaser has its bonuses (read flaming Sara-SSR chemistry), but it was Sara's portrayal of small-town girl Mukku that caught people's fancy. © Twitter The one minute and forty seconds long teaser gives us a glimpse of the potential Sara holds as an actor. It's convincing enough to make movie-goers feel they've got to watch out for this new girl on the block, and we wouldn't disagree. While there's still a week's time to kill before we can see for ourselves how much truth this assumption holds, in the meantime we bring you everything else there's to know about the Pataudi princess, who is set to become the latest entrant in Bollywood. The Royal Princess © BCCL Born to star parents Saif Ali Khan and his first wife Amrita Singh in 1993, she is Saif's eldest child. She is a doting big sister to her brother Ibrahim Ali Khan, who is 8 years younger to her. Sara and her brother are known to have been brought up by their mother Amrita, after their parents got divorced in 2004. Daddy's Girl It has often been speculated that the sourness of Amrita and Saif's relationship dribbled into Saif's equation with his kids; however, that doesn't seem to be true. View this post on Instagram Thank you for my first cup of koffeeee @karanjohar âï¸ð¤© #fatherdaughter #koffeewithkaran #suchfun #seeyousoon ð A post shared by Sara Ali Khan (@saraalikhan95) on Oct 3, 2018 at 7:21am PDT In an interview with DNA, Saif shed light on the strong bond he shares with his kids, “I have given my kids the freedom and space, which is why I trust them not to misuse it. They (Sara and Ibrahim) are young, but they tell me everything. I'm always in the know of what's happening in their lives. I don't know if I can call myself a friend, but we are really close as family and they know they can share anything with me.” He was particularly all-praise for his daughter and said, “Sara is a sweet and a bright kid. I don't know what I should be saying because it seems weird to praise my own daughter. But she's hardworking, I have noticed that about her”. More On Her Private Life Sara is a 2016 Columbia University graduate, who caught some serious eyeballs when she graced the cover of Hello magazine along with her mother. Ever since, she has been seen as an exact replica of her mother Amrita. © BCCL It is also known that Amrita plays the role of a key influencer in her kids' life. Right from picking their outfits for public appearances and events, to looking into the kind of projects Sara gets involved in, Amrita has a say in the matter. Amrita recently made headlines when she demanded that changes be made to the script of Sara's next project 'Simmba'. We've Got More Scoop Through Sara isn't very active on social media as of now, she did start making frequent public appearances over the past one year. Known for being a Bollywood movie junkie, she is also known to be a fitness enthusiast. © BCCL Apart from hitting the gym regularly, she is also known to visit the suburban gymkhana to indulge in her favourite sport - tennis. She has been clicked playing on a tennis court, along with Saif and Ibrahim a number of times. Equation With Step-Mom Kareena & Step-Brother Taimur Sara is known to share a great bond with her step-mom Kareena Kapoor Khan, and it is known that both of Saif's kids are in great terms with little brother Taimur. In an interview with a leading newspaper Kareena was quoted as saying, "We're like best friends. Saif refuses to come out with us. She's my bar hopping partner. I enjoy my equation with her. They are the most well brought-up children”.
