  1. With the ICC World Cup 2019 less than 10 days, Virat Kohli and the rest of the Men in Blue have finally left for England, where they will be participating in a couple of warm-up matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh on 25th and 28th May, before officially beginning their World Cup 2019 journey with their first game against South Africa on 5th June 2019. The team was, however, spotted at the Mumbai airport lounge hours before boarding their flight. A couple of photos of the members of Team India in the BCCI uniform made their way to the internet and instantly went viral for all the right reasons. Jet set to go ââ#CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/k4V9UC0Zao — BCCI (@BCCI) May 21, 2019 In the images uploaded by the official Twitter account of the Board of Control for Cricket in Indian (BCCI), some of the most talented athletes of the roster can be seen putting their time to good use and indulging in a couple of games of PUBG Mobile, the hit Battle Royale game that has taken the Indian market by storm ever since it was launched a year and a half ago. Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and even the team veteran, Mahendra Singh Dhoni were caught squading up against the rest of the world in the streets of Erangel.

  2. He is unfiltered, unapologetic, never shies away from putting forth his opinions and steers clear of the privilege that the 'Deol' tag offers him, particularly in his career. We are talking about none other than Abhay Deol here, the man who took his sweet time to carve a niche for himself in the industry, solely on his acting prowess. While most actors were busy ensuring their box office scores kept soaring, we had Abhay on the other side, churning out meaningful stories with his power-packed performances. He is surely among the rare breed of sorted actors we have in the industry right now. Be it 'Dev D' or 'Aisha' or 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', Abhay has never failed to impress us with his brilliance in his craft. If you have been missing watching him on the big screen, we have some good news for you. Abhay is coming back with his Netflix series 'Chopsticks' and a film titled 'Jungle Cry'. If you go by the trailers, you would have gotten an idea by now that something great is in store for you. Before you see him on the big screen and on your laptop screens, MensXP got you the unfiltered version of Abhay Deol, as we got a chance to interact with him and talk about some rather controversial issues. When we asked him if he has come to terms with the idea of his persona in the industry, which is known for being someone with rather strong opinions, Abhay said, "not sure what there is to come to terms with. Isn't that a good thing? As long as you don't force your opinions on others and are open to new ideas, there's no problem." If you have seen any of Abhay's films, you would know that he is known more for his choices of offbeat cinema. As a movie buff, I wanted to know what does he see in a script before giving a final nod to it. "Relatability, originality, context. I'm attracted to stories and characters that I can relate to, I look for originality even if it is a genre that has been done many times, and context, by which I mean where is it placed, how does it relate to that place, what is it saying about that place and why." Abhay started way too early when we talk about content-based cinema. Now, Bollywood is completely changing and content has now become the king. We have unconventional heroes like Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmann Khurrana taking the lead. The actor is proud of the change in the industry and said, "I think it's great! Technology has played a disruptive role all across the world and I was waiting for it to happen in our industry. When I was making non-conformist films, they got a release because coincidently the multiplex boom was happening. That came to an end, as there could only be a finite number of cinema halls we could have. With the digital era, that space is now limitless! The change in audience tastes has also happened because the generation that is going to the cinemas now was too young to be consumers when I was pushing hard for change. They've grown up exposed to world cinema/shows from a very young age and that explains their rejection of the old guard of Bollywood lately, and their embrace of more relatable actors, characters, and stories." View this post on Instagram Basking in the light of the #wintersun. A post shared by Abhay Deol (@abhaydeol) on Dec 4, 2018 at 1:47am PST Abhay shocked everyone when he took on the who's who of Bollywood and slammed them for promoting racism through their fairness cream endorsements. Talking about endorsements, it has become a clear shot formula for actors to be in the scene, even if they don't really stand by the product. I asked Abhay if he thinks that the concept of celebs endorsing such products blindly, should completely disappear from the scene. "Yes, I think celebs should not endorse brands that go against their principles. For example, if celebs who endorse fairness creams actually believe that fairer is better than darker, then that's fine. The thing is if they actually believed that, then they should find themselves to be inferior to fairer people as they themselves are dark in real life. And no matter how fair you are, as an Indian, you will always be dark in the context of the world. Then there are brands that pollute not just the body but also the environment, like all colas. On one level, all products are destructive to a degree, some more than others and I tend to side with the ones that cause the least damage because, after all, endorsements have become integral to an actor's career. Even the media plays its part, as endorsements are (often) their only source of revenue. We need to call out all players, not just the celebs to be 'fair'." Abhay said loud and clear. Abhay has always been very transparent in his approach to everything that he strongly believes in. Has it ever happened that he was rejected because of his transparency? Turns out, "many times." Well, that's how it works for people who are very blunt and transparent. So, what's next for him, "My next release is 'Chopsticks' which is the first Netflix Original film out of India. It goes live on its platform on the 31st of May," said Abhay. Are you excited for this one? View this post on Instagram A stolen car sends a frantic Nirma to an Artist to take on a goat-loving gangster. Chopsticks premieres on 31 May, only on Netflix. @mipalkarofficial I LOVE your expression in this one ð! @netflix_in @viniyardfilms A post shared by Abhay Deol (@abhaydeol) on May 14, 2019 at 9:35pm PDT If you think Abhay's journey has been a bed of roses because of the Deol tag, then you are wrong. His journey has been turbulent and he has had his own set of struggles. But what's more important is that he actually learnt from the things that held him from growing even more. "Everyone goes through struggles, successes, and failures. It's part of life and I'm glad I've got to experience both, the highs and the lows. You cannot appreciate the highs unless you have gone through the lows. As I said, everyone goes through highs and lows but not everyone learns to appreciate both, as many people do not like the lows. This is why there's a whole industry selling you a pill for your 'depression' or 'sadness'. I am aware that I've to lead a privileged existence and I am grateful for it. I've done exactly what I've wanted to, lived my life authentically and there are not many people who can say that." View this post on Instagram From the multi-talented @sinbadphgura This was taken at home, with only the natural source of light and no hair and make up. Come to think of it, that's how he always shoots with me! A post shared by Abhay Deol (@abhaydeol) on Jun 15, 2018 at 7:08am PDT The Deol tag eventually got me asking him about Nepotism that became a huge deal a while back. For the uninitiated, Nepotism is 'the practice among those with power or influence of favouring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs'. I asked him if he relates to the word and does he think having relatives in the industry helps the person grow, or does one have to constantly prove their caliber? To which Abhay had a rather strong response, "It's both a privilege and a curse. If you look at the current crop of actors, 99% of them are from a film family, the 1% left over are proteges of those with influence. It's unfair to point to Bollywood alone and call out its nepotism. Don't you see it in politics and big business as well? Most people would not like to hear this, but nepotism is part of Indian culture. Where do you think cast, 'Jati' comes from? The son is born into a community and carries forward the work of his father while the women get married and become housewives. Most of the country still operates under this Brahmanical system, the very thing both Gautam Buddha and Mahavira rebelled against. So, if you want to criticize Bollywood for its nepotism, look at your own family and ask the question, 'am I willing to marry outside my cast?' or 'am I running my father's business?' or 'will I let my maid or driver sit at the dinner table with me and eat with me?' Because all of these questions, believe it or not, are linked to our unique brand of Nepotism." View this post on Instagram All natural look, by the ethereal @aetheria_ #thephotographerisfarprettierthanthemodel. A post shared by Abhay Deol (@abhaydeol) on Aug 10, 2018 at 11:32pm PDT Well, that's quite an honest and a strong take on Nepotism. Why only blame Bollywood if it starts from your own home?
  3. Having a six-pack is something that every guy aspires when it comes to having a good physique. If you are reading this article, it is highly possible that even you have searched something like this on the internet: 'How to lose belly fat?' 'How to get six-pack abs?' 'Easy way to build six-pack abs?' The search results that you may have gotten would be of fat burning drinks or fat loss exercises or belly fat burning techniques. Like everyone, you do those things and the end result is... nothing! © Getty Images It is high time you get it into your brain that there is no magical fix that can help you get a six-pack in a week. It needs hard work and dedication. Start with these basic steps: 1. Go On A Diet Everyone has abs, as it is the part of human physiology. The only reason people are not able to see their abs are for two reasons: a. They have a lot of body fat covering it b. They do not have developed abdominal muscles Let's cover the first part here. The reality is that you need to be on a diet to bring your body fat percentage down. At the same time, you would want to preserve the muscle mass you already have. To calculate the number of calories you need to eat for fat loss, simply multiply your body weight in pounds with 13. To preserve your muscle, have one gram of protein per pound of your body weight. If you weigh 160 lbs., this would mean: a. Calories = 160x13 = ~2100 calories b. Protein = 160 grams 2. Do Weight Training You need to lift weights to hold on to your muscle when you lose fat. © Getty Images Make sure that you are doing compound exercises aka exercises that engage your core, and are moving more than one muscle group at a time so that you build your core. You can also include direct ab training with and without abs to build them further ahead. 3. Lose Around 0.5 To 1% Of Your Body Weight Every Week You will definitely get started on a diet once you plug in those numbers from step #1 and start losing weight. Then, there will be two questions: a. How much weight to lose? b. How fast to lose it? To reveal a six-pack, you need to have around 10 to 12% body fat. So, until you reach that number, you will have to dig deep. To find your body fat number, you can use a lot of tools like online calculators or Inbody machines. Ideally, you should be losing around 0.5 to 1% of your body weight every week. If things are faster than this, you could eat some extra calories. If you are comfortable with it, you can pick up the pace a bit. If things have slowed down, you can either calculate the numbers again on your new body weight or you can simply drop 100-150 calories and things should pick up. So, go do the work and follow a plan instead of finding the next quick-fix for six-pack abs.

  4. Ajay Devgn's upcoming film 'De De Pyaar De' has been making headlines since the day the makers launched the trailer of the film. Just a day is left to witness the madness that the actor has to offer. The film has a very interesting to take on modern era relationships. So, it's about a man who is 50-years-old dating a girl half his age. Yes, that's the plot. You might have seen the trailer and must have thought the story is about two women eyeing a man. Well, then you are probably wrong. So, MensXP got a chance to meet Ajay while was he is in the capital promoting his film, 'De De Pyaar De'. When we told that we really liked the trailer and it does have the humour element, he told us that the movie also has a matured storyline. "The film is just not about humour, it's a nice drama also. The film has a mature storyline and character are also way too matured characters. It says a lot which you might not expect out of the film. So, many things in the film have been said in a lighter vein but that will surely make you think of what's happening in the society," said Ajay. View this post on Instagram The countdown is on! 2 weeks until @dedepyaarde!⣠⣠@tabutiful @rakulpreet #AkivAli⣠@tseries.official @luv_films #BhushanKumar #LuvRanjan @gargankur82 A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on May 2, 2019 at 9:00pm PDT While talking about the movie, we decided to talk about his fitness. He has indeed aged like fine wine. He is 50 but his fitness levels are that of a 20-something guy. For those who have known him would know that Ajay has always been fit. Being fit doesn't mean flaunting your chiselled abs all the time; it's way beyond that. We asked about how does he manage to look this fit at the age of 50. He told us, "I do nothing. I have a clean diet but I do cheat a lot. I eat whatever I feel like sometimes. When you start thinking that you have to be on a strict diet, you always tend to break it. Cheat once or twice a week. It shouldn't be just a cheat meal but cheat days. It's all fit and fine till the time you have incorporated physical training into your daily routine be it Yoga or Cardio or Weight Training. I don't have a routine. It's been like 15 days I haven't gone to the gym. I feel like I am gaining weight. As soon as I am done with the promotions, I will hit the gym. The whole idea is to get back. At the end of the day, you have to keep your mind sane and healthy." Well, that's what we call being honest. There's no sugar coating here. Further, into the conversation, we dug out the observation by some Twitter users who called the trailer very SEXIST. There were tweets that said that movie doesn't have a strong viewpoint taking into consideration that the movie has two female characters. On this, Ajay told us, "When you would see the film, it's vice-versa. We have two very strong female characters and their point of view holds value. I would say it's more progressive." Yes, the movie is about relationships but Ajay has always avoided being intimate on the big screen. When we asked the actor if there's any particular reason to not kiss on-screen, he said, "We have a section of the audience which really feels that if it's an Ajay film, it would be clean. I don't want them to think that what has he started doing all of a sudden. I don't have a problem with it and I am not against it but for us, it doesn't work. We have the younger generation to do it and they are doing it." The conversation then panned to the whole idea of whether the society is ready to accept such a relationship in the real case scenario. Answering to our query, "It's changing and whatever you are trying to say is what the film is about and is trying to convey." In the film, Tabu plays his ex-wife and people have loved their scenes in the trailer. We asked him how has his relationship with Tabu evolved in all these years. "Mine and Tabu's relationship cannot evolve because of the fact we have known each other from the college days. We have been friends and it has nothing to do with films. The relationship that we formed in good old days, it's still the same," told Ajay. Ajay's son Yug has started training and his video went viral on the internet. We asked about Yug and daughter Nysa's inclination towards fitness. Replying to our question, "Yug trains everyday. Earlier, he used to like all those burgers and pizzas. Now, he is the one who says that 'I will be clean in a few days'. Imagine an 8-year-old saying this. Nysa is not too much into fitness, but she stays on a healthy diet." View this post on Instagram Eight complete... on my way to nine! Thank you for all your love! A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Sep 13, 2018 at 5:56am PDT Then, we asked Ajay if he is interested in joining politics just like his contemporaries. Well, his answer is a big NO. Ajay told us, "Zero politics for me. I don't understand it. I am cut for it and I don't like going out much. I don't like interactions that much so I believe I can't be a part of politics." Last but not the least, we asked him about an article which claimed that he wanted his love story with Kajol should be made into a film. He told us, "I told them that there's no great story in my life that can become a film." View this post on Instagram By Popular Demand. A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Aug 5, 2018 at 11:15pm PDT Before we finally said goodbye to Ajay, we wanted to inquire if he would also like to tap into the market of the web series. On this, he said, "As a production, we have already tapped into the web space. As an actor, if I find something great, then why not?" Would you want to see Ajay Devgn doing a web series? Let us know in the comments below!
  5. One of the worst kept secrets in the history of modern cricket has to be the real age of the former Pakistan cricket team captain, Shahid Afridi. The man, who is considered to be 44 years old right now, based on various public records, has finally revealed in his autobiography titled 'Game Changer', that at the time of registering his name for an Under-14 cricket tournament during his childhood, he had no idea how old he was and filled in whatever age the people around him told him to. That age got recorded into the Pakistan Cricket Board's files and went on to become Afridi's official birth year. Amused by the fact that Shahid Afridi has revealed the worst kept secret in international cricket. But I have always believed that unless you are playing an U19 World Cup, your age doesn't matter. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 3, 2019 The record for the fastest hundred in the ODI format of the game was under the name of Afridi who, while batting in international cricket for the very first time hit a ton in just 37 balls, which is 11 fewer than the previous record set by Sri Lanka's Jayasuriya against Pakistan in Singapore six months earlier. At the time, it was officially declared that the Afridi was in fact a 16-year-old, which made the record that much more impressive. Now, the former skipper has come out in the open saying that his actual age at the time was 19 (21 according to the autobiography) and the gravity of that record just crumbles down. A byproduct of the revelation of the whole facade is that cricket fans have now brought back Afghanistan's extremely talented cricketer, Rashid Khan into the spotlight, trying to figure out his “real age”. According to his ICC profile, Rashid Khan was born on 20th September 1998, which makes the ICC World Rank 1 (T20I, Bowling), all of 20 years of age right now. Clearly, after the Shahid Afridi episode, people online are not buying Khan's story: Shahid Afridi : I was born in 1975 and not 1980 Cricket fans to Rashid Khan : pic.twitter.com/d1HCXXgAE0 — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) May 3, 2019 Shahid Afridi today, Rashid Khan tomorrow ðð — ACS ð¹ð¹ð¦ð¬ (@AdamSamuel__) May 3, 2019 Is Shahid Afridi younger than Rashid Khan? — Keyur (@_bollywoodlover) May 11, 2019 Rashid Khan koi angle se 20 21 ka nhi lagta ...his actual age is above 25 ....just like Afridi.. — Abhishek Pandey (@paandey1993) May 9, 2019 After the successful release of Shahid Afridi's game changer Rashid Khan has started working on his autobiography as well. The name of the book will be The Age Changer Will have at least 1 chapter dedicated to Afridi in that too.#GameChanger — Azlan Mahmood (@azlanmahmood1) May 4, 2019
  6. Whether you have a desk job or you're an athlete, a good night's sleep is important for all. Not getting enough or not getting quality sleep results in feeling drowsy at the office, low performance, irritability and more coffee. For an athlete who`s training hard, this translates to poor recovery between sessions, fatigue and higher chances of a crash and burn. In this article, I`m going to give you science-based pointers which can improve your sleep quality: 1. Use Blue Light Blockers: Ideally, you should be avoiding mobile and laptop screens a few hours before your bedtime because blue light from them mess up with melatonin production and thus interfering with your sleep. © Getty Images If still by any chance, you can`t avoid it, you should be using blue light filtering apps. Remember, these apps only reduce the blue light, not completely eliminate it. Latest smartphones are coming with pre-installed night mode features. In case you don`t have one, you can install “Twilight” app built for Android. iPhone generally has the same feature with the name “Nightshift”. This will ensure less strain on eyes before you want to hit the bed. 2. Massage: Remember when you were a kid/infant and would have a sound sleep after a soothing massage from your mother? Well, that`s because massage helps in relaxing your muscles resulting in better sleep. According to the research gathered by American Massage Therapy Association, massage improves the sleep of everyone ranging from infants, children, adults and individuals with various medical disorders. The best thing about a massage is that you can do it yourself as well. Areas that are easy to self-massage include – scalp, neck, foot, wrist, arms, legs and shoulders. 3. Meditate: Multiple studies support the claim of regular meditation that can help fight insomnia and help to fall asleep quick. Not only this, but meditation at night is also proven to increase melatonin levels. Melatonin is a hormone released at night which regulates sleep cycles. When your body does not get enough Melatonin, it's not getting the signal to sleep which makes you stay awake late at night. © Getty Images Synthetic melatonin supplements are also used by people suffering from insomnia or have trouble falling asleep at night. So, give meditation a try before you reach out to that bottle containing pills of melatonin. 15-30 minutes of meditation is all you need. Meditation also gives anti-ageing benefits, so you are killing two birds with one stone. 4.Warm /Hot Water Bath: It is proven that taking a hot/warm water shower right before bed relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and reduces body stiffness which increases your chances of a good night's sleep. This drop in body temperature after a bath before bed also makes you sleepy. 5. Supplement Magnesium:- Magnesium is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions inside our body. It is needed for many processes inside the body yet most of us don`t get the basic daily requirements for magnesium. © Getty Images Magnesium has a calming effect on the body, making it useful for reducing blood pressure and building deep sleep patterns. Dosage is generally 300-500mg a day. In one of the multiple studies conducted to prove its impact on sleep, a group of older adults suffering from insomnia, which included difficulty in getting to sleep, early awakening or feeling unrefreshed upon waking, showed significant improvement after supplementing with magnesium. Not only this, but magnesium also helps in the absorption of Calcium and VitD3 and not getting enough causes muscle cramps and irritability.

  7. After months of creating hype and buzz around the film, Karan Johar's production 'Student Of The Year 2' has finally hit the screens across India today. Directed by Punit Malhotra, 'SOTY 2' had a lot riding on its shoulders, simply because its predecessor 'Student Of The Year' starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra had given the Hindi film industry three of its crowning jewels upon its release back in 2012. © Dharma Productions Yet, as per the latest Twitter reviews for 'SOTY 2', the audience seems less than thrilled by the movie. Apart from receiving criticism for its sorry storyline to the bad attempts at acting and poor song choices, people have shared their disappointment for extravagantly promoting actors who are not talented enough. © Dharma Productions What's more, people are no longer sure if the film is about a young romance or Tiger Shroff's preparation for representing India in the Olympics in the near future. Some have even gone so far as to claim that the film looks more like a Pro Kabaddi league than a love story. © Dharma Productions A wasted plot, half-baked dialogues and poor acting also remain recurrent complaints. Check out what people are saying about 'SOTY 2': Mindless storyline (honestly we had been expecting this since the trailer released). #SOTY2 is a trash mindless action ,sorry (so called youth oriented college flick) .@iTIGERSHROFF should enroll himself in acrobatic instead of films,#TaraSutaria stands out while #AnanyaPanday is cute , story is trash (old routine drama) with good cinematography. â­â­/5 (2/5) . — Rahul verma (@RahulVerma4860) May 9, 2019 Nepotism, much?

  8. Taking steroids to make your physique look a certain way has become as common as sipping on BCAAs in the gym today. Youngsters have started using it as a supplement and have normalized it beyond stupidity. A lot of gym trainers openly promote and sell these steroids to young kids to make a quick buck. Not only do they understand the downsides, but they also do not have the medical background or a degree to be recommending this. © Getty Images Before digging into fools who advise this, let me give you a brief on steroids. What Are Steroids? The definition of steroids is man-made oil testosterone, the male hormone. They integrate protein and help promote muscle growth. Types of steroids include anabolic and growth hormones. The definition of an anabolic steroid is, "Any drug or harmful substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens, progestin, and corticosteroids) that supports muscle growth, burns fat, any drug or hormonal material that stimulates the endogenous result of steroids in the human body which acts in the same manner". Now Let's Check The Downsides Of Using Steroids: - Your heart health, kidney health, and liver health can go for a toss. - Your natural sperm production may get shut forever. - You can go bald. - You can develop breasts. - You will get acne. - The list can go on... Steroids can also affect you psychologically, as they can push you towards a state of depression, aggression, and can make you very hostile. Some bodybuilders and users are so aggressive that they have to use tranquillizes when not competing so they keep themselves calm and cool. People who advise you to take steroids are alarmingly not educated in this field. Who are they? 1) Bodybuilders: A lot of bodybuilders are not experts in the science of exercise and nutrition. They have coaches and they follow what's on their plans. Their knowledge is absurd and certain pieces of advice from them can harm you and aren't sustainable. © Getty Images Here are some gems of advice coming from them which do not make any sense: 1) Eat 6-7 meals: Well you don't have to eat 6-7 meals, because it's all about net calories. You can eat 4 meals per day and still gain muscle. 2) Train single muscle per day: Well, to grow muscle and recover you can train your all muscles 2x/week because our muscles recover within 24-72 hrs. You can put quality work for each session. 3) Eat a ton of protein to grow muscle: Well you don't have to consume a ton of protein. Muscle grows if you consume 1.8g-2.0g/kg/day. What actually is helping these bodybuilders build muscle? ANABOLIC STEROIDS. 2) Gym Trainers: Most gym trainers are a pain in the ass, as they will sell you literally anything just to pull money from your pocket. For them, money matters and why? Because through your money they can buy their steroids. It's like a toxic business circle. Let's understand a few facts: 1) You can build a good physique without taking steroids. As you read the disadvantages it can really harm you in many ways. 2) You are not a professional bodybuilding athlete and your earnings do not depend on it. 3) The steroid lifestyle is not sustainable cannot be done on a regular basis by many of you. 4) You need a huge amount of money in your bank account, to deal with regular checkups and various other requirements. 5) You will lose your gained muscles as soon as you come off steroids. Being natural will help you to keep those muscular gains forever. If your goal is to really look good with your shirt off, do this instead: 1) Proper customized nutrition which supports you to lose fat and build muscle. 2) A training plan which supports you to lift heavy and do more overall work overtime aka Progressive overload and high volume. 3) Manage training fatigue by taking some light week sessions and managing life stress. 4) Sleep 7-8+hrs daily to recover well so that you can build muscle. 5) Be consistent and have patience. It takes time to build a good physique.

  9. With the release of 'Logan' in 2017, we probably saw the end of one of the most iconic characters in the last decade and a half. Played by none other than Hugh Jackman, the character Wolverine was brought to life in a way no other man could have. So much so, that it is now very hard to imagine someone else playing the character. © Marvel One thing, in particular, that was very commendable about it was the way Hugh developed his physique over the years. From the first 'X-Men' movie to the last one, you could see a noticeable improvement in his physique as he got more and more ripped as time went by. He recently mentioned in an interview that he has been following Intermittent Fasting (IF) protocol to get in shape. This generated bucket loads of interest in IF and it made IF one of the trending topics on both Twitter and Google. As it is with everything else, people have started talking and wondering if IF is the ultimate secret to getting fit and ripped? Is Intermittent Fasting The Secret We've Been Looking For Since Ages? Before I answer this question, let's first look at what Intermittent Fasting is and how it works? Intermittent Fasting is simply the time between eating and non-eating. It is a dietary-pattern rather than a diet which most people mistake it for and start thinking that IF is what makes them lose fat/get ripped. It is just a conscious decision to fast and then eat. This means you consume your calories within an eating window which in turn makes it harder to overeat for some people. © Getty Images The most popular way of doing IF is setting fasting and an eating window, for example fasting for 16 hours and then eating within the remaining 8 hours of the day. Although there are other protocols that people follow such as the alternate day fasting method where you eat normally for 24 hours and then fast for the next 24 hours. Another method is eating normally for 5 days a week and fast for 2 days. You might have noticed by now, all that these patterns do is that they stop you from eating for a certain period of time. Now, if you think about how you lose weight, the simple answer would be to eat less than what your body needs to maintain its weight. Any rational person here would understand that any dietary pattern that helps you eat less would help you lose weight, it's not magic, just good old science. In the case of Hugh Jackman, you have to remember that he is a genetically lean guy and he finds it hard to put on weight rather than losing it. © Twitter/realhughjackman Any person who finds it hard to put on weight will always get lean putting in a lot less effort than some who is on the heavier side genetically. So much so, he was put on a diet of around 4,500 calories when he was bulking up and around 3000 calories when he was cutting down (yes, a dream for most of us). Will It Work For You? If you are someone who likes to consume larger, less frequent meals, then IF can help you stick to your diet better which can, in turn, help you lose weight faster. But if you are thinking that just following the Intermittent Fasting protocol will help you get ripped, you have a very big misconception. As mentioned above, you'll only lose weight if you eat less food than what your body needs to achieve its weight i.e in a caloric deficit, not eating at certain times and not eating at others. Is It Safe? Studies have shown that almost all the patterns of Intermittent Fasting are harmless and can help people who like to eat that way stick to their diet better, resulting in better weight loss. However, there has been no evidence whatsoever which shows that Intermittent Fasting will help you lose weight faster or improve your health markers when compared to a linear caloric deficit.

  10. Virat Kohli is a name that doesn't really need an introduction, as he is the most popular cricketer that India has seen since the legend Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli is someone who is always seen leading the Indian team from the front, be it with the bat or on the field. But what really sets him apart is not just his cricketing skills, but his fitness too. © Reuters When it comes to fitness, the Indian captain just keeps on raising the bar and has become the fitness icon of India when it comes to sportsmen, as no other Indian athlete can match his fitness levels at present. In fact, I am also sure that his chiselled and amazing body is something that a lot of people are striving to get for themselves. In this article, I am going about how you can build a sportsman-like physique just like Virat Kohli: 1. Dietary Control In a recent interview, Virat himself said that he hasn't tasted 'butter naan' and 'butter chicken' in the last 5 years which used to be his favourite dish. This not only shows his immense discipline towards his diet but also tells you that he stays away from any kind of junk foods at all. You can't expect your body to look and respond like a sportsman if you're going to feed it junk food every now and then. Your diet should be as nutritious as possible. Avoid eating highly processed and less nutritious food all the time. 2. Increase Your Protein Intake The combination of the chiselled physique with explosive energy is impossible to achieve without a good amount of protein in your diet. Your body needs to have muscles to look muscular. Protein is the building block for muscles, thus it is very important that you include enough protein in your diet on a daily basis. Having 1.5 grams protein per Kg of body weight is a good place to start with and thereafter you can increase it according to your own individual needs. 3. Combination Of Resistance And Agility Training If you look at Virat's physique carefully, you will realize that he doesn't have too much of muscle mass. He is not bulky like a bodybuilder but yes, he has muscles. © Reuters To build muscles, you need to train with weights. When your muscles are subjected to resistance training regularly, your body tries to build new muscle fibres. Also, sport-specific performance like Kohli's will need regular agility training as well. You could choose from various forms of agility drills like ladder drills, cone drills or medicine balls. Working out at least 5 to 6 days in a week with a combination of resistance training and agility training will be best suited for a body like Virat's. 4. Consistency Virat didn't become Virat overnight. It took him years and years of hard work, dedication and discipline to become what he is today. You have to keep this in mind when you make a target to be like him. There will be temptation around you for skipping your workouts or to cheat on your meals, but you have you show your commitment towards your goals. This is what differentiates an achiever from a loser. Just do the hard work, be patient and you will see the results coming your way.

  11. Cersei Lannister's famous dialogue, “when you enter the game of thrones, you either win or you die” rings a bell now more than ever. As we settled down to sit through the viewing of the premiere episode of the final season of a global phenomenon called the 'Game of Thrones', years worth of journey with the main cast relayed before our eyes. © HBO Death and gore happen to be one of the dominant themes in the series, wherein people have been burnt alive, skinned to death, their heads crushed, stabbed in the eye and what not. While the body count at the beginning of the show rested at 26, it has undergone tremendous dips and rises over the last 8 years of its existence with the body count rising to a whopping 58 in season 6 following the destruction of the Great Sept of Baelor by wildfire. © HBO So talking of death, we couldn't let go of the nagging feeling that death is indeed waiting to rear its ugly head even in the final season of 'GoT', and just like millions of fans across the world, we would not help but wonder which of our favourite character might end up dead in season 8. © HBO While speculations and memes have already started to fill the internet, we decided to do some digging and got our hands on this survey conducted by Morning Consult, who asked die-hard 'GoT' fans to vote for the character who is most likely to die in the final season of 'Game of Thrones' which premiered earlier today. View this post on Instagram April: the month that kills your favorite charactersâ #gameofthrones #avengers #endgame #9gag A post shared by 9GAG: Go Fun The World (@9gag) on Apr 15, 2019 at 12:00am PDT Now, while that is just a speculation, the survey has shown that, fans believe these 5 characters from the series are mostly likely to die by the end of season 8. *Insert Drumroll* 1. Cersei Lannister © HBO 36 percent of fans believe that Cersei, the cunning and extremely ambitious Queen Mother of the realm of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will bite the dust this season. Known for her haughty, conniving persona, she is above the feelings of empathy, and bears a tongue laced with poison. Her betrayal of Daenerys and Jon was in keeping with her true nature. How many of you want her dead? 2. Night King © HBO Next up, almost 34 percent of fans feel the Night King will be dead by the end of this season. The supreme master and the first of the White Walkers is all set to lay siege to Winterfell, armed with a terrifying army of White Walkers, wights and an undead Dragon. Will he succeed? Or will he die trying? 3. Euron Greyjoy © HBO Currently the King of the Iron Islands, and uncle to Theon and Yara Greyjoy, Euron is cunning, highly intelligent, barbarous and dangerous in a number of ways. Having a reputation as the worst of all the Greyjoys, Euron fights on Cersei's side and 32 percent fans want him to be the one saying goodbye this season. 4. Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane © HBO With 31 percent fans voting for Sandor in the survey, this original House Lannister ally might just be the one. While fans are also anticipating that the final season will see him kill off his brother Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, we will have to wait and see how that unravels. Having shifted his allegiance over the years, we're still not too sure about believing him even now. 5. Theon Greyjoy © HBO Having grown up with the Stark children like a brother, he is also the prince of the Iron Islands. Theon has been on a quest to save his sister, Yara from the clutches of Euron Greyjoy, their uncle. 30 percent believe that Theon might be the one to warm the grave before the curtains fall this season. That is not all, fans have also voted for 20 other characters from the show, who might end up dead instead of the top 5 listed above. Take a look at the stats here: © HBO Who do you think will be dead this season?
  12. 'Game Of Thrones' first premiered on 17 April 2011. The season 8 (beginning of the end) of the show is premiering on 15 April which is right here. But looking back to the first season, we realise that all these actors were babies when they started out. Jon Snow, or Kit Harington, has now taken major spotlight in Hollywood. We will see the last few episodes of 'Game Of Thrones' in just a few days. We don't know if he'll survive or not, but we hope he does. But before that, let's step back and appreciate Kit for all these years of hard work. Clearly, his style has evolved, and how! Here's Kit through the years parallel to the production of GOT. 1. 2011 In 2011, we saw a young Kit sans beard. He's clearly become a mature version of himself now. © Reuters © Reuters 2. 2012 Jon Snow had only started to become popular and teens would use pictures like these for posters in their room. © Reuters 3. 2013 Balancing a fine stubble is tough. Here is Jon Snow pulling it off casually. © Reuters 4. 2014 A scarf with a coat is an underappreciated Winter style that men should wear more often. © Reuters 5. 2015 A classic two-piece with a black tie can never go wrong, courtesy Kit. © Reuters 6. 2016 Using black on black to his advantage again, here is Kit with a black bow tie that complements his outfit seamlessly. © Reuters 7. 2017 Here's the thing: a blazer can be worn casually without it looking extra, and here's proof. © Reuters 8. 2018 While we think that this is a stellar outfit, we hope to see Kit try and embrace other colors like yellow. What do you think? © Reuters 9. 2019 Kit Harington at the premiere of 'GOT' in 2019. He is going to move on from his Jon Snow appeal and we'll miss this aesthetic. © Reuters
  13. People didn't wait for their exam results as desperately as they are waiting for the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' to drop. And with each passing day, the wait is only getting harder. © HBO While season 8 is still a few days away, the GOT fever arrived early for Mumbaikars all thanks to the Aarambha Dhol Tasha Pathak. On Saturday, people in Maharashtra and most parts of the country were submerged in the celebrations of Gudi Padwa. So was the Aarambha Dhol Tasha Pathak but in their own way. How? By making everyone groove to the beats of dhol-tasha with 'Game Of Thrones' music in the background. © YouTube Who could have thought of playing dhol to the intro track of GoT, on Gudi Padwa? Well, this group did and their performance gave goosebumps to everyone, including the people who watched it on the internet later. © YouTube The band is famous for their energetic performances during Ganesh Utsav, Makarsankranti, Navratri and more. And this time, they chose to surprise everyone with their GoT performance and we're glad they did. The video's description reads, "Aarambha dhol tasha pathak performing on (Game of Thrones) in Dombivli Gudhipadwa shobhayatra with fusion of traditional instruments #Bulbul (Benjo) and Dhol Tasha." Desi fans are so impressed with this cover that some even joked that they want Daenerys to do Lavni while fighting the White Walkers.
  14. 'Kalank' is a period film, set in pre-independent India about an elite family and conflicts that escalate to communal tensions parallel with impending partition. With a stellar cast of Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Kunal Khemu, the film does look very promising. Set to release on 17 April 2019, Kalank's marketing has been a mix of having the on-screen couples twin in the same colour and wearing long flow-y ethnic kurtas and sherwanis to commemorate the film's appeal. We saw the entire cast dressed as if ready to crash a destination wedding. These outfits are so good that you'll want to steal them for the next wedding season. One of the recent outfits that we really liked was Aditya Roy Kapoor's, who was wearing an asymmetrical sherwani. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The sherwani comes in two layers. The outer layer is powerful, blue solid with thick contrasting white buttons, the inner layer extends till the ankle on one side and is stitched in an assymetrical cut. The sherwani is so fascinating that we think it's a perfect option for a bestfriend's wedding because firstly, it's not the kind of sherwani just anyone would wear to a wedding, so you'll look different but it doesn't even look bizarre. In fact, people will be only envious of this outfit.
  15. Considering the fact that it's the first thing we put on in the morning as we get ready to face the day, it's almost criminal how little thought we put into picking out our underwear. The same applies to underwear shopping as well - most of us just grab the same type we always buy, without so much as a second thought, and repeat the same process time after time. After all, it's only underwear, right? No one else is going to see it, so what difference does it make if it's the same style (and sometimes even colour!) that you've been wearing for years? Well, we've got a newsflash for you! Picking out your underwear is one of the most personal and private decisions you can make when it comes to menswear. After all, you wear it right next to your skin all day. It plays a vital role in ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout the day regardless of what you're doing. Making the wrong choice leaves you open to a whole host of annoying problems including excessive sweating, irritating itchiness, and repeated adjustments. So, unless you're okay with spending the whole day with your hands stuffed down your pants, it's high time you paid as much attention to what's going into your underwear drawer as you do to the other contents of your closet. That's not to say that underwear shopping has to be boring, pricey, or time-consuming. A little knowledge about the variety of underwear options available to you is all it takes to ensure your comfort every day. That's exactly what we hope to provide with this extensive guide to the best underwear for men, which will make underwear shopping as comfortable and satisfying an experience as the products themselves. But First, A 'Brief' Guide To Buying Your Briefs: 1) Fit: Ill-fitting underwear can play havoc with your daily routine, which is why it's extremely important to pick up the right size of underwear (especially if you're experimenting with different brands). If it's too large, you'll spend the whole day pulling them up. If it's too small, it'll cut off the blood supply to your nether regions, and you don't need us to tell you that that's not a pleasant sensation! 2) Fabric: Cotton is the tried and tested material here, but there has been a lot of innovation in this department in recent times, which means there are many more options. Various other cotton blends and fibres come with their own pros and cons. For a luxurious experience, you might indulge in some silk boxer shorts. Similarly, spandex or lycra trunks underneath your workout attire or mesh or lenzing modal underwear with your running shorts is a smart choice. 3) Colour: The world of men's fashion is ever-changing, and you're not limited to solid colours or simple stripes or checks any more. An attractive print might catch your partner's eye when things get hot and heavy in the bedroom. You can also sport printed boxers bearing the logo of your favourite superheroes or cartoon characters during a weekend movie marathon. Just be sure you don't mix up the two! 4) Brand: When it comes to underwear, most men tend to have a fierce loyalty towards a particular brand. We're not saying there's anything wrong with that, we just recommend keeping an open mind. Who knows, you might be missing out on the perfect fit or style by refusing to try out another brand's offerings! So there you have it, guys - it's time for an underwear overhaul. Broaden your horizons and restock your underwear drawer with a variety of styles, fits, colours and fabrics based on your particular needs! Looking For The Best Underwear For Men? Here's A Helpful Guide 1. Saxx Men's Fiesta Boxers © Amazon Let's start on an upbeat note with a literal party in your pants, with these Fiesta boxers from Saxx.

The viscose is not only smooth and doesn't trap body heat, but also retains its colour very well thereby ensuring the longevity of the boxers.

  16. We adore Aparshakti Khurana not just for his acting skills (which are brilliant by the way, have you seen him in 'Stree' or 'Luka Chuppi') but also his fluid fashion choices which have never failed to surprise us. Recently, he was spotted wearing a Dhoti with Balenciaga shoes and an interesting 6 and half ft Off-White belt. Recently, Aparshakti was spotted along with his sister in law, Tahira Kashyap. Now, he probably was coming from the gym because he was spotted wearing a pair of super airy joggers with zippers that cover the entire length of their joggers. They're mean zippers that start at the ankle and can unzip till the top. © Viral Bhayani The great thing about these trousers is the fact that you won't feel hot and restricted in these joggers and if the hot Summer heat decides to bite you, you could always unzip them till your knees and voila, you won't feel hot anymore. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani It's time that men start experimenting with fashion that makes them comfortable but is also versatile at the same time. And thanks to actors like Aparshakti Khurana, we finally have inspiration that we can take with us.
  17. If you're a Marvel fan, the second you read this headline you probably thought, "hey. I'd do it for free"! But jokes apart, an American company called Cable TV is willing to pay $1000 to a die-hard Marvel nerd to basically binge watch 20 MCU movies. © Marvel It's not just hard cash that's going to come their way. The winner will also get lots of Marvel goodies like a Thanos mug encrusted with Infinity Stones, a Captain America popcorn popper amongst other super cool things. This is a promotional event for the upcoming movie 'Avengers: Endgame' and hence, they want someone with a high level of patience and will love to binge-watch this truckload of action more than anything else. The company is looking for a Marvel nerd who can over-enthusiastically live-tweet their entire experience and also have an outgoing personality. As a submission to participate in this contest, one needs to sum up in 200 words so as to why they are the ideal choice. Sadly, this is only valid for people living in America and over the age of 18, so well, there's a lot of FOMO attached here. Maybe you can help a friend living in the US to apply for it.
  18. At the beginning of 2019, it was announced that a biopic on our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in the works. The news also confirmed that it would be actor Vivek Oberoi who would be seen essaying the titular character in the film, which has been titled 'PM Narendra Modi' and is being directed by Omung Kumar. View this post on Instagram Jai Hind ð®ð³ð We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. #AkhandBharat #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Jan 7, 2019 at 5:59am PST When the first look of the film was revealed in January, we saw Vivek Oberoi in a brand new avatar, bearing a close resemblance to PM Modi. However, now it has been further revealed that the actor shall be seen sporting nine different looks in the biopic, and the said looks seem pretty striking. Take a look at the looks here: Vivek Anand Oberoi's different looks in the biopic #PMNarendraModi... Directed by Omung Kumar...

While we know that the biopic is said to narrate PM Modi's journey from his humble beginning to his rise as the Prime Minister of India, these looks have piqued the interest of the audiences. It has also been reported that the film will be released in 23 Indian languages! #RajendraGupta as Mr Narendra Modi's father and #YatinKaryekar as Lakshman Rao Inamdar in the film #PMNarendraModi Here is the look!@Sandip_Ssingh @Sureshoberoi @OmungKumar pic.twitter.com/vwMjTvEbqA — Komal Nahta (@KomalNahta) February 26, 2019 Last month, Komal Nahta had also shared that actors Rajendra Gupta and Yatin Karyekar have been roped in to portray the role of Modi's father and Lakshman Rao Inamdar respectively. Moreover, it is also being said that Boman Irani will be seen as Ratan Tata in the biopic. The trailer for 'PM Narendra Modi' is expected to release tomorrow, while the film will hit the theatres on April 12th.
  19. Have you ever felt frustrated when your girlfriend, during an argument, tells you that you are not a good boyfriend? Have you ever felt intense jealousy when she compares you to a fictional character and sighs, ruing the fact that why can't you be as romantic as them? If your answer to the above questions is “Yes”, then this post is just the one for you. Often, while rolling your eyes when something romantic happens on screen (with your girlfriend slyly pointing out how great a boyfriend the character is), you contemplate whether the term “good boyfriend” is a myth. © Pinterest The truth is that you can hardly compare to a fictional boyfriend; the charm, the intensity, the articulation, the good looks, everyone is not blessed with all of these. And even though your girlfriend is well aware of this fact, people can hope, can't they? (Don't act like you have never compared her to Hermione or RobinScherbatsky :P) © 21 Laps Entertainment/Netflix Oft-misunderstood and perpetually trying to achieve the perfection required by the girlfriend, being a boyfriend seems like quite a job, eh? :P But that doesn't mean that every character in fiction, or to be precise, every fictional boyfriend is the stuff of dreams and are faultless. They, like real people, make wrong choices, have fights, do the wrong thing. © Warner Bros. Television/Alloy Entertainment/ The CW In fact, all these years, through various series, novels and movies, we have seen a parade of superficially great fictional boyfriends who get the girl. And the girl seems happy with him. © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions After multiple viewings and thorough character analysis, this is the truth we arrive at: All this while, they have been masquerading as perfect boyfriends who can do no wrong while in reality, they are terrible human beings. © Elizabeth Meriwether Pictures/20th Century Fox Teevision So, the next time your girlfriend accuses you of being a bad boyfriend, you can tell her that there are still worse ones out there, and you have fictional characters to back you up. Here are 12 of the worst boyfriends in fiction: 1. Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother): © CBS/Bays and Thomas Productions/20th Century Fox Television Intense, dedicated, romantic. He is the most relatable guy on TV. Could there be anything wrong with Ted Mosby? Unfortunately, yes. Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) is one of those people who keep whining because they are not in a relationship and when they are in a relationship, they whine about how it was better being single. He is that proverbial nice guy who makes you feel bad about yourself. Ted is the textbook definition of obsequious; he lets people walk all over him in a relationship just so they continue to be in one with him. No doubt that Ted loves with passion and no one else can love as Ted does, but he lets his emotions get the better of him. His ambition to be perfect always comes in the way of his love. Moreover, he tries to manipulate the person he is dating in his own way and throws a tantrum every time they don't concede. He is sweet, but he tries too hard to prove that he is good and better than the rest of the men on the planet. He is narcissistic in the worst possible way, which overshadow his good qualities. In his quest of becoming the “Best Boyfriend Ever,” he hardly thinks about others, in fact about the girl he is dating. His over the top gestures might seem romantic but he but it just comes across as annoying. The biggest problem is he knows what's wrong with him but conveniently chooses to ignore it. 2. Mr Big (*** and the City): © HBO Oh, where can I start on Mr Big (Chris Noth)? He is perhaps the modern equivalent of Mr Darcy, but a very abominable one. He is handsome, smart, rich and articulate. But all these have no value when you are a douchebag. After proclaiming to Carrie that he is no ready for a serious relationship, he ends up getting married to the next woman he runs into. He is commitment-phobic; he finds relationships stifling and he has no qualms in starting an affair with Carrie when he is married. He is unsure of his own feelings and never says what he means, tries to hide the fact that he is dating from other people because others may judge him for the person he's dating. He never seems to care for Carrie or any of his wives. He loves Carrie but is never sure about it and brings out the worst in her (leaving aside the fact that Carrie is terrible herself) and even after a long, long, long courtship leaves her at the altar. 3. Joe Goldberg (You): © Netflix/Berlanti Productions/Alloy Entertainment/Warner Bros. Television The personification of the “Nice Guy Syndrome”. The more you say about Joe (Penn Badgley, who seems to be cursed to play bad boyfriends, but he does it so well), the less it is. He may be the guy next door, but he is the type who doubles up as a murderer/stalker (talk about multi-tasking :P). He seems to take the notion of loving someone to death quite literally, that“someone” usually turning up dead. Yes, all of it is not his fault, Beck isn't completely innocent, but killing another person isn't justifiable. Doesn't really qualify him to be “Boyfriend of the Year”. Worse is he thinks himself to be the victim and justifies his murdering people with being a “protector”. He is a sociopath: he schemes all his movements to the tee and tries to show himself in the best light possible and can lie with élan. He sweet-talks, fakes the good boy act and gaslights with alarming ease. He is delusional; after only a chance meeting and superficial flirtation, he believes that Beck is meant for him and they met because of some plan, that she belongs to him, then tries to manipulate everything in order to achieve that, eventually even choosing violence on the way to get her. 4. Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries): © Outerbanks Entertainment/ CBS/ Warner Bros. Television Sexy vampires cannot hold a candle to the suave and debonair Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). He is a different kind of bad boy: the supernatural bad boy; not only is he wicked but he also is a vampire (what more can you ask for, right? :P) This does not change the fact that Damon is not the perfect boyfriend material. He is selfish, possessive and fights dirty, is abusive (*drinks blood*) and has the worst possible track record in dating. To his credit, he is not afraid to declare it and that is where the problem is; he is too invested in his interests to care about his partner or anyone for that matter. He loves Elena with a fierce intensity which quickly transforms from compelling to dangerous. His desire for Elena stems from the fact that his brother also wants her; he fights for her, not because he loves her but because he hates to lose. To him, Elena is a prize to be won over, not an equal partner. That is hardly the foundation of a good relationship. 5. Don Draper (Mad Men): © Weiner Bros./Silvercup Studios/Lionsgate Television Don (Jon Hamm) is possibly the king of bad boyfriends, a poster child of what a fuckboy should be. He continually cheats on his wife (because why not, it's the '50s, right?), lies to her and treats her with as much respect as people give to a doormat. A true womanizer, one who would put Casanova to shame, he has a string of girlfriends whom he does not care about and are mostly for his sexual gratification. He tries to run away from responsibilities and can hardly be true to someone. He thinks that money solves all his problems and just spending it or throwing it around on people makes up for all his mistakes. To be true, he is a *** addict and a psychopath, with little regard for the feelings of the person he is involved with. Moreover, he is dominating (again the '50s) and can never let the woman have the upper hand or her opinion for that matter. His dangerous charm, good looks and devil-may-care attitude seem good on paper, but does it hold up in real life? He might be the best advertising mind out there (his only redeeming quality), but an advertisement about his skills as a boyfriend won't take off in the market anytime soon. 6. Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls): © Warner Bros. Television/Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions Ah, the messiah of bad boys! Brooding, hot and a lover of books makes Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) the perfect fictional boyfriend, but nothing can be further from the truth. Of all of Rory's boyfriends, he is the brashest and most uncouth. He is rude to everyone; his teen angst is misplaced, and his self-assuredness is annoying. His rebel without a cause attitude seems appealing only to Rory, who is blind to his emotional manipulation. He is perhaps the worst “bad boy” trope out there: exasperating the girl he is interested in until she gives in. He makes Rory break up with Dean, with his apparently nonchalant run-ins and woos her by showing how much they have in common, but once he makes her his girlfriend, he takes her for granted and starts ignoring her, doesn't call her back and becomes increasingly rude. To top it off, he tries to force her to have *** with him and gets angry when she declines and runs off to California. Though he seems to have finally turned a new leaf in the reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. 7. Rhett Butler (Gone With The Wind): © Pinterest Well, we all know that Rhett (Clark Gable)“frankly doesn't give a damn”. And he means it. A roving eye, a cavalier attitude and a megalomaniacal nature hardly come together to make a good boyfriend. But he is glib, a smooth talker and says what he means and yes, that is very sexy. That's what makes him so desirable to Scarlett O'Hara. Then again, talking is so much easier than doing, isn't it? He is prejudiced, he belittles Scarlett throughout the novel/movie, demeans her (Scarlett isn't exactly the faultless heroine either) and worries only about himself. Just like his slippery talk, his qualities and personality are also “gone with the wind”. 8. Nate (The Devil Wears Prada): © Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Selznick International Pictures The most annoying character in “The Devil Wears Prada” has to be Nate (Adrian Grenier), Andy's seemingly perfect (with a slight clothing fetish), saintly (*ahem*) boyfriend. He sulks around the screen like a petulant 5-year-old whose candy has been snatched away. His tantrums are worse than Miranda Priestly, he can easily give her a run for her money in that department. He ridicules Andy every chance he gets; about her job, demeans her job, never supports her and masks it with a veil of fake concern for her. He keeps telling her that she has changed, like that is a bad thing, because she doesn't cater to his every need like she used to. He tries to make her feel bad for choosing her career over him though he has no problem in doing the same and is angry with her when she stands up for herself. He seems very sweet and encouraging but that's a façade for his insecure personality. 9. SteveHarrington (Stranger Things): © 20th Century Fox/Fox 2000 Pictures/Dune Entertainment Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry) is the best babysitter in all of Hawkins. Fashion expert par excellence. Dedicated mother hen to the Stranger Squad.Awesome big bro to Dustin. But as a boyfriend, he is a jerk. Though he does realize his mistake later on (sadly after Nancy has moved on), his abysmal treatment of Nancy (and Jonathan) in the first season makes one's blood boil. He is one of those entitled jocks who run around making others miserable. Also, when Barb dies, he is flippant about it and his lack of emotion is appalling. The indifference about it plays a major role in Steve and Nancy's break-up. He loves Nancy but he has an odd way of showing it; he pushes her to be cool and let down her inhibitions, but he also wants to control her. He wants Nancy to be more free about herself, loosen up, but forgets that she is a reserved person and they need time to open up. As of Season 2, he has redeemed himself as a person, but not as a boyfriend. Ah well, there's still the next season. 10. Ross (Friends): © Netflix/21 Laps Entertainment Ross “We were on a break!” Geller (David Schwimmer) is the epitome of the “Nice Guy Syndrome” (A well-natured cousin of Joe Goldberg in that way). He suffers from intense jealousy, can't seem to comprehend that his girlfriend can have a life which does not revolve around him. He hangs on for Rachel for 10 years, until she gives in. People might call it persuasive and romantic, I say it is borderline stalkerish and psychopathic. He tries to justify his atrocious behaviour by blaming the people around him and tries to prove himself right on a technicality. He does not trust his girlfriends, even though he is hardly perfect. He is extremely conflicted about the possibility of being wrong and thinks himself to be blameless. Touchy about his masculinity is just another feather in his boyfriend's cap. His goofy ways are supposed to be endearing but they don't come across as extremely childish and irksome (at least to me :P). Even when he is not in a relationship with Rachel, he keeps sabotaging her relationships and behaves abominably when he finds out that she is dating Joey. 11. John Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility): © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions John Willoughby (Greg Wise) is handsome, chivalrous, classy, eloquent and can make girls go weak in the knees. He can read poetry with dramatic intensity and gusto, he can be effectively charming and speaks with unnatural grace and economy. Granted everything, that doesn't change the truth that he is a flake; a spineless gold-digger who would rather be married to an heiress than to the supposed love of his life who is penniless. He leads Marianne on, takes her on wild horse-rides, is extremely romantic with her, makes her feel that he loves her but does not tell her the truth about himself. Instead, he breaks her heart and goes off to London and ceases communication. When they meet in London again, after Marianne's unsuccessful but relentless attempts to communicate with him, he is cold and acts aloof. The reason? He has been engaged to Miss Grey, who has a formidable fortune and tells her that there was nothing between them. Classic case of “literary fuckboy”: leading on for personal gain. Not only that, he impregnates Eliza, Colonel Brandon's adopted daughter, and runs off leaving her pregnant and helpless. Not so gallant after all! 12. Lucas Scott (One Tree Hill): © Warner Bros. Television/Tollin/Robbins Productions One word: Indecisive. A total and complete jerk! No doubts on this one, please. Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) is like a child with a shiny, new toy: He knows what he wants but doesn't want to work for it. Once he gets what he wants, he doesn't want it. He cheats on his girlfriend repeatedly; does so just before proposing to Lindsay and pulls the quintessential “sleeping with the best friend” when he is with Brooke. He knows that he wants Peyton, but when he finally ends up with her, he behaves in a weird way with her. He has no remorse and is selfish, he just needs what's good for him and does not care what happens to others. Moreover, he thinks that making a grandiose speech about how he loves someone is enough to make the other person forgive him. So, there you have it. Who's the worst according to you? Tell us in the comments!
  20. The entire nation cheered with pride when Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was released by his Pakistani captors to come back home and serve his country once again. From people in small villages to the Bollywood fraternity, every nook and cranny of the country was thrilled to welcome him back home, like a hero who'd just returned from war. © Twitter From people naming their newborns after him to some men aping his gunslinger moustache, everyone has been in awe of the brave pilot, whose presence of mind during his capture will always be remembered. Recently, some folks took to Twitter and raised notions about making a movie about him and also suggested that Ranveer Singh would be best suited to play him in the biopic! Fair enough, Ranveer with his rogue style and a definite moustache clash with Abhinandan can do apt justice to the role for sure. © Twitter While we're sure a movie will definitely surface on Abinandan's bravery, it's just a wait-and-watch situation as to when that happens. After all, we're eager to see who plays him. But for now, the audience seems pleased with Ranveer and here are some endearing tweets they've shared. @RanveerOfficial Why don't you try a Abhinandan style moustache. #AbhinandanMoustache — Pulkit Shah (@pulkitshahh) 3 March 2019 #SanjayLeelaBhansali to produce a film on Balakot airstrike.https://t.co/rJ1vOAQM6J — Filmfare (@filmfare) 4 March 2019 Now he'll cast @RanveerOfficial as Abhinandan — Mohammed Touqeer (@mohd_touqeer_) 5 March 2019 Ranveer Singh to Play "Abhinandan" in Movie Wo 56 Ghante! https://t.co/ZoaTB5z8ZB — sargamarora (@comsargamarora) 4 March 2019 You should enact Abhinandan when his Bio/ Pulwama attack movie will be made — Police (@snjay0) 3 March 2019 You missed one thing Ranveer singh to play the character of abhinandan varthman. — Pinkesh D Chawda (@ChawdaPinkesh) 4 March 2019 I propose that Ranveer Singh should play the role of #Abhinandan in the Bollywood movie about to be made - no one else can carry off that moustache.

  21. First dates can be really agonising. Meeting a stranger for food and drinks isn't exactly a comfortable situation to be in. From not disclosing TMI to keeping it chill, striking the balance can be really tricky. Then there's the question of how to dress for the date. Apart from grooming habits that your date can instantly notice to, an emergency pimple popping guide, here's some women answering the burning question of how they want men to be dressed on the first date.

  22. Kartik Aaryan has always been at the forefront of the 'cool millennial style revolution'. Relaxed, oversized, and often meticulously layered - Kartik's outfits boast of the edgy aesthetic that modern street style is all about. The chirpy, bright colours sure do help, when it comes to the cheerful demeanour associated with his overall style (that his stylist The Vainglorious clearly has decoded, and now mastered). We particularly have always had an eye out for all the sweatshirts Kartik wears, as there is something inherently stylish and sophisticated about them that scream hypebeast.

  23. MWC saw quite a few interesting and weird smartphones, however, the show was stolen by all the foldable smartphones that were announced. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event, followed by a more practical foldable smartphone by Huawei called the 'Mate X'. As of now, foldable smartphones have been teased by various companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, LG, Motorola and others. Apple has considered making a foldable smartphone in the past and has also filed a patent that covers “Flexible Display Devices”, however, we have not seen anything from the Cupertino giant as of now. Even though Apple may just be the only manufacturer that has not flirted with a foldable prototype, it didn't stop Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak from wanting one. © LetsGoDigital Speaking to Bloomberg, Wozniak said that he really wants to get his hands on a foldable iPhone and wants Apple to be a leader in this segment of smartphones. “Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as Touch ID, (Face ID) and easy payment with the phone,” Wozniak said during the Bloomberg interview. “They're not the leader in areas like the folding phone, and that worries me because I really want a folding phone.” Apple is known to have surprises up its sleeve and we cannot be sure whether the company is already working on a foldable smartphone. Even though the Mate X and Galaxy Fold have been announced, the two smartphones are not yet ready for consumers. It's still quite expensive and is in the initial stage of development. Apple, on the other hand, is known to launch devices that just work and it may be too soon for the company to unveil its own foldable device. © LetsGoDigital Even if Apple does make a foldable iPhone, there's a good chance it may look like the image above. It's a render based on the patent filed by Apple and developed by LetsGoDigital. Do you want a foldable iPhone in the near future? Let us know in the comments. Source: Bloomberg
  24. Fashion is essentially subjective, of course, but there are some things that one should just stay a hundred miles away from - unless of course, they enjoy wallowing in bad taste. Men's fashion is becoming more and more inclusive every passing day, but that should never be the license for wearing 'the bad and the ugly'. In spite of all the subjectivity, trust us, there do exist some unforgivable fashion faux pas, that every man should steer clear of. Don't worry if it sounds too confusing, we're here to tell you what not to wear. We have listed out 6 things that men should never, ever wear. 1. Shiny shirts © FashionLeisure They were popular once upon a time, but we'll never understand why. No one can pull them off! Shiny shirts will make you look weird AF, even if you look like a Greek God. They look super cheap, extremely gaudy, and plain ugly. 2. Ill fitted, baggy jeans © Alibaba If you want to convert your Tinder right swipes to left swipes in real life, please go out on a date wearing these atrocities. Yes, comfortable and blah, but so are a pair of nice, crisp pair of linen trousers that fit you just right! Why would you want to look like a confused teen from the hood in a Gangsta movie who's had a trip or two to the juvie? 3. Socks with sandals © Getty Images We can't stress upon how harmful this one right here can be for your romantic/*** life. It, however, will work as a great contraceptive method because you will never be getting laid if you're seen in public wearing them. Go on, try it out. 4. Huge belt buckles © Democratic Underground You're not a cowboy (unless you actually are). But even if you are, why should you be a fashionably deprived one? Plus, it's not the '70s anymore and they should just be discarded. 5. Square toed shoes © ShoesLovetoknow Who can pull them off, honestly? Your feet would look 60 if you wear them. 6. Too much of jewellery © Saavn You aren't Bappi Lahiri, and you should save it only for him.
  25. Is there a better way of finding out what women want than asking them? No, there isn't. That's why we decided to ask women in 2019 what they want from men.
