  2. Sony's PlayStation 5 is not out yet, and we don't even have an official launch date for it. However, we already know quite a bit about the console. More recently, we've learned that the new console is going to have a shorter life cycle than the previous console. For those of you who don't know, the PS4 was launched in November 2013, which means people have been using the console for seven years now and it's still going strong. But from what we've learned, it looks like the PS5 life cycle could 'live' for just five years. © Sony According to DigiTimes, sources from Sony's back-end supply chain in Taiwan made the five-year claims for the PS5. That, as you can see, is less than what we've been seeing with the previous generation consoles. Obviously, there's no way to confirm this but five years sounds like less considering the fact that it's said to be a super-powerful console. Additionally, the supply chain folks over there claimed that Sony will ship between 120 and jio170 million consoles throughout its lifespan. That's an incredibly ambitious number given the fact that Sony has hit 110 PS4 units over the last six years. As to how it'll compare against Microsoft's Xbox Series X, Sony is expected to get double the numbers. Will We See A New Console? © Sony So what's going to happen after the end of the expected five-year period? Will we get a new console from Sony? Maybe. Sony has already filed trademarks for the PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and the PS10. So it's safe to say that Sony has tentative plans to continue releasing new consoles. Honestly, it's too early to dwell on this topic. We haven't got our hands on the console yet, so let's not speculate. We hope Sony announces release date for the console soon and we get to use it to see exactly how powerful it really is. Source: Digitimes View the full article

  4. For regular people, it can be rather tough to imagine what outer space would be like. However, with NASA's new specially designed fragrance called Eau de Space, we can at least find out what space smells like. © Reuters According to the website Kickstarter, NASA had created a formula decades ago that was used as a stimulus for astronauts as they prepped for their space missions. Now, NASA has decided to share it with the rest of the world. According to CNN, NASA first approached chemist and founder of Omega Ingredients, Steve Pearce, to work on the fragrance back in 2008. After four long years, the brand is now looking for help in order to mass-produce the fragrance to make it accessible to the public. © Reuters If you're wondering, what the fragrance is like or what notes it will be close to, in a 2002 interview with CNN, American astronaut Peggy Whitson described the smell of space as âkind of like a smell from a gun, right after you fire the shot. I think it kind of has almost a bitter kind of smell in addition to being smoky and burned," added Whitson. © Reuters Eau de Space product manager Matt Richmond describes the smell of the fragrance as "Astronauts describe the smell as a mix of gunpowder, seared steak, raspberries, and rum." But more than just exposure to people, another motive of developing this fragrance on a larger scale is for the organisation to garner interest in STEM learning for K-12 students, as a way to provide access to audio-visual stimulus in educating the students. This as Richmond puts it, will add to the "experiential education" for the students and will hopefully spark the interest in building the interest further. © Reuters Another product that the company is going to focus on is replicating the smell of the moon in a fragrance called âSmell of the Moon.â It's set to be priced at $15 which comes down to approximately Rs. 1,100, and will start delivering by October 2020.

  5. Ever since the tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput, people have been going after Bollywood and all the stars who they think are to blame. The debate surrounding nepotism has been reignited and all the star kids are getting called out and eventually getting 'cancelled'. After Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor, it was time for Arjun Kapoor to come under the wrath of the internet after news resurfaced that Sushant was originally going to play the main role in the movie Half Girlfriend, which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel. © ALT Entertainment While it's great to call out the inequalities in Bollywood and acknowledge how nepotism is rampant in the industry, this case might not be that deep. While everyone was busy trolling Arjun, no one seemed to get their facts right about the casting. It was actually Sushant who had walked out of the movie before Arjun was cast, and we're not trying to defend Arjun Kapoor, but facts are facts. Reportedly, Sushant had already agreed to do a different movie and due to dates clashing, he had to opt out of Half Girlfriend. #ArjunKapoor IS IT???? Half girlfriend was given to SSR?? pic.twitter.com/YHJ3s7eWgl â Aishna Prabhakar (@AishnaPrabhakar) June 24, 2020 Moreover, even if Sushant was involuntarily replaced in the project, the blame would still fall on the makers instead of the actor. There's no denying that Arjun has obviously benefitted from the Kapoor surname and by belonging to a film family, but at least in this situation, he's not at fault. Yep. Arjun Kapoor did this movie finally because of Nepotism pic.twitter.com/UvkkpQttZ4 â Saffron Aayush (@iDubeyAayush) June 23, 2020 He's getting trolled now. #ArjunKapoor trending While planning to leave twitter Arjun Kapoor to other nepo kids: pic.twitter.com/lyKEPWuR8E â Vikram singh (@poptheIcons) June 24, 2020 Hmm. #ArjunKapoor *People after watching Arjun Kapoor's Acting* People to Bollywood:- pic.twitter.com/BeOeeoDux0 â Sarcasto (@Sarco69) June 24, 2020 People are really at it. #ArjunKapoor #halfgirlfriend My reaction after watching arjun kapoor performance in halfgirlfriend :- pic.twitter.com/vQbnXD3vjp â Billu (@sarcasmic_billu) June 24, 2020 Sonam and Arjun are the new target on Twitter. Sonam Kapoor has acted in over 20 movies and her success rate is below 38%. Is it because of bad Karma in her past life? Sonam's cousin Arjun Kapoor has acted in a dozen movies and proved himself to be a flop, mediocre actor. Is this also because of bad Karma in his past life? â Revolutionary Memes For Bahujan Teens (@RMBT_tweets) June 21, 2020 Bollywood is Full Of Nepotism & Hipocrites Half Girlfriend Movie : Sushant Singh Rajput Replaced by Arjun Kapoor Fitoor Movie : SSR Replace by Aditya Roy Kapoor Befikre Movie SSR Replaced by Ranveer Singh#justiceforSushantforum #SushantSingh #SushantSinghRajpoot pic.twitter.com/PwepMdPdOS â Abdul Raqib Saifi (@abdulraqibsaifi) June 24, 2020 Chetan Bhagat going viral in 2020?

  7. Making it big in the Bollywood industry and sustaining the success are two different things. It takes a while to resonate with the audience but in some cases, despite trying everything, it is merely impossible to catch everyone's attention, after all, it is all about making an impact, right? Be it for the star kids or the new entrants, unfortunately, success is a long call and more often than not, these celebrities just disappear from the big screen. Here's a list of actors who moved away from the limelight and this is what they are up to right now. 1. Uday Chopra © Twitter/UdayFC Uday Chopra is the son of the well-known filmmaker, Yash Chopra, who made his debut with Mohabbatein. But this actor's career graph was only declining and movies like Neal n Nikki, Pyaar Impossible etc all tanked at the box office. He was last seen in the third instalment of Dhoom. The actor, after all the struggle finally moved into the international arm of Yash Raj Films banner. 2. Vatsal Seth © Youtube/Bollywoodhungama Vatsal Seth's face is a reminder that Taarzan: The Wonder Car would not be the same if it wasn't for him. The actor is also remembered for the character of Jai from Just Mohabbat Show. But after being away from the limelight in B-town, the actor bagged a lot of television shows where he was able to prove his prowess. Recently, though. he was last seen in Malang where he did a cameo. 3. Rajat Barmecha © MXP Player After doing a great film like Udaan, it was expected that we will get to see more of Rajat Barmecha, who also won the Best Male Debut award. But since it was a highly acclaimed movie, the actor faded away from the limelight. Ever since he has only been doing cameos in short films. The talented actor was last involved in a series named Hey Prabhu. 4. Kumar Gaurav © Pinterest Kumar Gaurav gave his debut in Bollywood with Love Story but after a string of flop movies, the actor failed to make a mark in the industry.

Giselle Monterio © Youtube/Filmytoday The Brazillian model, Giselle Monterio had a mind-blowing start in Bollywood with Imitiaz's film, Love Aaj Kal.

Turns out, she had to quit Bollywood so that she could pursue architecture from the University of Vila Velha, Brazil and as per reports, the actress has no plans of coming back to the industry. 6. Fardeen Khan © Twitter/Fardeen Khan FC Fardeen Khan was touted to be the big thing in the Bollywood industry but unfortunately, due to back to back flops like Khushi, Dev etc, the actor failed to grab good scripts. Eventually, his stardom in Bollywood faded and his career went for a toss. After all sorts of controversies though, the last time we heard, the actor had moved to London with his family. 7. Sikander Kher © Twitter/Sikander Kher For the unversed, Sikander Kher is Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher's son. He gave his debut in Woodstock Villa after which he did several other movies but all of them failed to entice the audience and they tanked at the box office.

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

  11. We have said this before and we will say it again - if there is anyone in India, on whom men and women alike have had an intoxicating crush on, it is Milind Soman. © Instagram/milindrunning So naturally, when the man drops some serious knowledge about modern relationships, and how our actions and choices in those relationships shape us social animals, we were all ears. Having seen Milind play Dr Aamir Warsi in Amazon Prime Video's Four More Shots Please! which, in its essence is a show that is made about women, by women, but not necessarily just for women, we thought why not have a chat with one of the charismatic men from the show, about what modern-day relationships actually entail. © Amazon Prime Video One thing that pops up in mind when one watches 'Four More Shots Please!' is, the parallels it draws about the four women in lead and the women from *** and the City Series. In both the shows, it was the urban space and the cityscape that allowed the women to make the choices they make. However, in terms of cultural conscience, there is such stark difference, that what would have been “normal,” and insignificant in SATC, takes on a much more nuanced position in Four More Shots Please!. © Amazon Prime Video Milind as Dr Warsi inhabits a rather unique position in the scheme of the show. His portrayal of Dr Aamir Warsi in the series is layered and has a lot more going than what meets the eye. We asked him about the dynamics of changing relationships in these times, where and how do we go ahead in the post-COVID-19 era relationships, and most importantly, we try to ask the age-old question - what do women want from a relationship. © Amazon Prime Video Edited Excerpts: The show deals with relationships in a rather nuanced manner, and in ways that we don't often get to see in Indian films and shows. It has instances of polyamory, it talks about co-parenting, and then there is the conversation about having an agency in a relationship. How would you say have these ideas been received by the audience? These aren't entirely new concepts for us as Indians, especially if we have been exposed to the West in any way. But yes, these are situations where we as a society and as individuals have never faced before. For us, even if we inhabit the urban space and the sensibilities that accompany that space, it has always been about not talking about them. Four More Shots Please! explores these concepts, and places the four women in a position where they come face to face with things like co-parenting and polyamory. The show is not just about four women drinking, and having a good time, it is much more than that. On the other hand, for a series like *** and the City, it wasn't something new, even back then when they were making that show. In the Indian context, Four More Shots Please! tries to explore, the choices and options that people now have, seeing how sub-cultures and influences all over the world, and again, in India, are evolving. © Amazon Prime Video There is this very fleeting but poignant instance in the show when Sayani Gupta's character, Damini, talks about having 'the talk' with your partner before you start a relationship. How does one ensure that both the people are on the same page, assuming they truly get there at all? You can never be truly on the same page unless you talk. When you are starting out in a relationship, you want to present only the good things, what your dreams are and where do you want to go. However, what makes a person are the choices that they make, and what are they willing to do to get to their dreams, what actions to they take, and this is where the differences often creeps in. This is why it is important to have 'the talk', just so that you know what is expected outcome of a relationship is, how do we get there and what do we do once we get there. © Amazon Prime Video Let's talk about fatherhood and how the show deals with it. How would you say the show deals with fatherhood? I think the most crucial thing about fatherhood that the show explores, is the concept of choices, and its notions in these changing times. We have been conditioned in a way that has forced us to see fatherhood using only one lens. The show points towards the free will to make different choices, something that did not occur to most men, like Siddhi's father. Dr Warsi as a character is a very laid back person who lives each day as it comes by. There is no sense of planning. © Amazon Prime Video However, when Damini informs Dr Warsi, that they are pregnant, he jumps on board, even though he knows they have no future together. This is where Warsi's actual personality comes to the foreground. He is no longer a passive character. He switches into overdrive, and starts planning, starts thinking what are they going to do about the situation, and about the baby. That being said, he does not impose what he thinks is best, but rather, adapts to what Damini would want. She does not take a stance when asked about their future as co-parents, and that of their child's. But had she taken one, Warsi would've accepted it and adapted. Then we have someone like Siddhi's father, who even though was a distant father at the beginning of the second season, comes around and becomes one of Siddhi's biggest and most vocal supporter towards the end. He has also been conditioned to go by a certain way, and yet, he breaks those conventions. The point that the show makes is that it is no longer feasible to stand behind what we have come to call conventions and “culture.” You need to take a stand according to what you believe in and look at the virtually limitless options that you have. © Amazon Prime Video One recurring aspect that the show talks about is the idea of being friends with your exes. From your personal experience, would you say that is feasible, and more importantly, a healthy thing to do? This actually depends on the situation. Once you enter into a relationship with someone, it stays. Yes, the dynamics, the meaning, the name of the relationship changes. For example, when two people part ways, they still have a relationship after they have parted. If they are romantically involved, we call them exes. It still is a relationship, albeit a different one. It is up to the individuals to work out what will the new boundaries be, whether it will be productive and healthy for both of them or not. Sometimes, it genuinely is, whereas sometimes, it is not. © Amazon Prime Video Let's talk about your acting career for a bit. You were a supermodel before you took up acting, and after you, we had John Abraham. However, we don't see that happening often, when men who are really successful and established models take up careers in acting. What would you say has changed? It was easier earlier for people to get a part in a film. Casting directors would often meet someone in the most mundane of places and just pick them up. Now though, the process has become very professional. You won't be at the top of a casting director's mind at this day and age, because there is a very limited context in which models are represented in the media. There are no supermodels any more. Models or for that matter anyone who wants to act in films or OTT platforms have to get in touch with the casting directors and agents and actually show that they can act, before getting the green light. © Viral Bhayani Or perhaps, the easier and shorter answer would be they probably aren't that interested anymore. Tell us something about your acting process. How do you prepare yourself for a role? I have come to realise that at the end of the day, it is about human characters. How would a certain human being behave in a certain situation and how I as an actor make it interesting for the screen and the audiences, without going over the top. Of course, there are some technical things that one needs to take care of, but the director and the writers help you out with those things. You cannot expect an actor who plays a gynaecologist, to have undergone the same training as a real-life gynaecologist - that would be impossible. So you construct the character in your mind, how he would behave in a certain situation, and fine-tune those things. © SonyLIV This lockdown is something that has forced people to spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with each other, without any scope of a momentary respite, which is quite antithetical to the way modern relationships have come to function. How should one go about this and deal with it, so that they come out of this situation, stronger as partners and stronger as individuals? The key is to have compassion and understand that the position that you are in, your partner is also in a similar position, that they too are finding it extremely difficult to do normal things. You need space, so ensure that you give your partner the same. This requires discipline, respect and understanding, all of which has to be mutual. View this post on Instagram Day 6. Plain, simple, slightly warmed up, coconut oil for my hair ð¤ A post shared by (@milindrunning) Cases of domestic violence have increases in the lockdown. Although it is much easier said than done, you have to take a stand for yourself. There is a tendency for things and people to breakdown so it is very important for people to find spaces for themselves and afford the same to their partners. Understand where your partner is coming from and work on yourself. And most importantly, talk things out. View the full article
  12. Amid the Coronavirus crisis, where we're still under a nationwide lockdown, TV channels that were previously not doing so well have started getting all-time high ratings. This is also courtesy of the introduction of classics like Ramayan and Shaktimaan on DD National that are being re-aired to keep people entertained in their homes. The mythological series originally aired during 1987-1988 and became a household staple.

  14. Elon Musk is the most unusual billionaire, and we don't even know what he'll do, because it's always the unexpected. Along with being the genius owner of Tesla and SpaceX, he's also basically a troll on Twitter at this point. Just going through his tweets sometimes makes me question, "how high is this guy right now?" And well, I of course picture this iconic moment. © Twitter Now, we all know that Tesla's latest exciting offering is the Cybertruck, which looks like something we all drew as a kid, and it's so weird that it's actually cool. People have already pre-booked this unique looking car/truck/whatever and Elon himself has been driving the prototype around LA for months, increasing the hype even more. Along with sharing 'dank memes', he also regularly answers questions by people about his various cars and this time he was discussing the Cybertruck with a few people and said that it can even float for a while. Yes. It will even float for a while. â Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 20, 2020 Again, the question stands - what the hell is he exactly making? We all live in a grey submarine? Cybertruck can float for a while. The first real submarine car from Tesla. https://t.co/yHkJ3CHGPq pic.twitter.com/Lj5Hey0Vfm â Legacy is f***ed (@tesla4k) April 20, 2020 We'll see.

  15. We wonder if there is anything that engineers canât pull off? From studying engineering for four years to pursuing a career in a creative field, youâll find them with the hidden talent to making a success out of anything they choose to do. © Unsplash Recently, The Madhya Pradesh police found an engineer living in a cave ever since the lockdown began on March 24. The man is a Mumbai resident and embarked on Narmada Parikrama which is a very popular pilgrimage in the area when he got stranded in a forest. Now the police has handed him over to his relatives. Virendra Singh Dogra was found living in a cave in the forest in Raisen district and he has been living there for over a month now. © BCCL The police found a few clothes and a copy of the Mahabharata with him and it couldnât get any more dramatic. The man was on a journey to Namada Parikrama but left it halfway as the journey involves walking around the Narmada River on foot from Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh to the river mouth in Gujarat. © BCCL Virendra stopped at Kuandevri Village at the house of a relative when the lockdown began on March 22. Later, people spotted him living in a cave and reported the matter to the forest department and the police. Virendra explained to the police that he lives in Navi Mumbai and also told them that his sister lives in Hyderabad. Later, his sister corroborated the story to the police. Then the police sent him to his relative's house in Kuandevri village. © BCCL Now, thatâs a lot of drama and it sounds like a script from a very dramatic Bollywood movie that wouldnât impress the audience that much.

  16. The entire nation is amid lockdown and while the government is trying its best to control the spread of the deadly coronavirus, a lot of things are going haywire when the public refuses to adhere to the rules and guidelines laid down for safety. The current lockdown has been extended till May 3rd and in his last address, PM Modi announced that certain relaxations will be applicable in many zones of the nation starting 20th April. This included allowing the restart of several industries, e-commerce being able to deliver non-essential items and so on. So while many people are happy to know that life is at least moving towards the direction of normalcy, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal addressed the city and announced that these lockdown relaxations will not be applied to Delhi for now. After assessing the prevailing situation in Delhi, we have decided not to permit any relaxation of the lockdown, as of now. https://t.co/mPIOpuF2KR â Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) April 19, 2020 His logic is actually not as flawed as some people are assuming it to be. Around 12% of the total coronavirus cases have been reported from the capital and with a humungous population, controlling the situation can actually backfire is relaxations are put into place. Delhi has 11 districts and sadly currently, all of them are hotspots. With over 77 containment zones, the situation can become alarming if people are allowed to move around. âI am concerned about children not going to schools, people not being able to earn their livelihoods. But if we relax the lockdown and fall short of hospital beds, ventilators... what will do then? For now, we have decided not to relax the lockdownâ, he explained. © BCCL The other looming danger is the fact that a lot of fresh cases donât have the prescribed symptoms and that explains the severity of the situation. âYesterday, of 736 tests that were conducted in the city, about 25 per cent tested positive. All 186 patients had not shown any symptoms. This is dangerousâ, he exclaimed. The situation will be assessed in a weekâs time before the state government can draw any further conclusions. This means if you were building up a cart on an e-commerce site planning to stock up the ânon-essentialâ category items which are probably essential for you, it wonât be possible for a while to do so. While a lot of people are questioning this move and are unhappy about it, we need to understand that Delhi is currently like a wild fire which will keep spreading its danger if the residents donât cooperate.

  17. A lot of memes come from cringe content, of course, and that's something India never has a shortage for. We have had some iconic moments of viral videos and it honestly doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Why should only desi people suffer? We have the most over-the-top daily soaps and it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that any reality show produced here is a goldmine for memes. Bigg Boss alone has blessed us with so many gems over the years, and I think we, as a nation, would forever be thankful for that. Sometimes, way less often than I would like, these hilarious videos cross the border and get the international fame it so desperately deserves and I'm so happy about it. So, I thought I would make a list of all the instances where desi videos ended up going viral all over the world. 1. Pooja, what is this behaviour? Hands down, the most iconic Bigg Boss video of all time. People know the entire conversation by heart and honestly, that's legendary status right there. And, the fact that our beloved Pooja changes her accent like four times will never not be hilarious. Please do yourself a favour and watch this video again, you deserve it. © Reddit 2. How can she slap? Another great moment in Indian TV history and I really hope this one lives on forever, it's just that funny. The violence, the drama, the titular slap? It has something for everyone. An iconic video, out and out. © Twitter 3. Gopi bahu washing the laptop Oh no Gopi bahu, what are you doing? I can't believe this level of comedy originated from a freaking saas-bahu serial but oh well! Moreover, I love how it became relevant again recently after people were using this video as joke about cleaning their laptops because of coronavirus. © Pinterest 4. The curtain slap I really find it so hard to believe that this is genuinely a scene that exists and it's not intended to be something hilarious. I mean, just look at her, what the hell is she even doing? Who goes and wraps a curtain around their neck like this? Indian TV peaked with this, tbh. © Youtube 5. The other guys in her DMsHer: **** you, I got plenty other guys in my DMs Her DMs: pic.twitter.com/e09cLFw2oq â The real GSK (@GSKINOT) September 15, 2018Okay, I kind of feel bad for this one, but at the same time, I don't. It's just a fun video and its main intention was to make everyone laugh and it did. Also, you can't deny desi guys, just like all other guys, are creepy in the DMs. BONUS © Twitter How can we have a list about desi things going viral without the iconic 'Bobs and Vagene' comment? That phrase is recognised all over the world and is probably the first thing people relate with India, and I don't know if it's a good or a bad thing. View the full article
  18. There is no need to beat around the bush here, Bollywood has made some really terrible films over the years. When we consider this, along with the fact that a lot of times, some Bollywood filmmakers have directly picked up scripts, given it a few twists and remade them into films that were perhaps purely meant to torture audiences, it all makes sense somehow. © PVR Pictures With Ayushmann Khurrana tweeting recently that he would love to play the Professorâs character from Money Heist, Twitter went kind of berserk and started imagining which Indian actor or actress should play which character. This got us thinking, do we really want to besmirch such a masterfully made show? Heck no. View this post on InstagramBella Ciao! Kartik Aaryanâs lockdown look reminds us of The Professor from Money Heist ð¥. I guess there is one Professor in every house today. I"m sure you too have a similar picture to share in this #quarantinelife #quarantinetime #KartikAaryan #viralbhayani #moneyheist @viralbhayaniA post shared by (@viralbhayani) What is really frustrating at times is the sheer absurdity with which films often have been remade. They had a great and mind you, proven scripts, stellar star casts, and yet, they failed miserably, because of how lazily the film was made, or the makers simply thought that Indian audiences ko kya hi pata hoga kuchâ¦. © BCCL Here are 5 films and their terrible Bollywood remakes, which for once and for all, prove that Bollywood ought to be very careful when making remakes: 1. Players (The Italian Job) © Paramount Pictures Whether you speak of the original 1969 one, or the one that was released in 2003, The Italian Job was a masterfully made film. It certainly is one of the best heist films in English. What Bollywood gave was, was this. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Players was a disaster and rightly so. An over the top acting that would put even the most dramatic of K-serials to shame, some ridiculously senseless dialogues, and concepts that are completely foreign to India that were simply lifted from the originals ensured that the film tanked for good. 2. God Tussi Great Ho (Bruce Almighty) © Universal Pictures I am sorry, but Salman Khan does not have the comic timing of Jim Carrey - thatâs just a fact. And one of the main reasons why Bruce Almighty was so good and such a laughter riot, was Jim Carrey - he was the driving force behind the film, the thing that kept audiences glued to their seats. © Eros International God Tussi Great Ho was a disaster - the script was shoddily repurposed, the CGI was terrible especially for 2008âs standards. Just watch a few scenes from both the films and youâll know what weâre on about. Even though Bruce Almighty was released 5 years prior to the Bollywood remake, its graphics and CGI have actually aged well. 3. Action Replayy (Back To The Future) © Universal Pictures Much before Akshay Kumar came to be known for his comic timing, he had given a string of films which were torturous to sit through. One of the worst was Action Replayy. © PVR Pictures Back To The Future had a wonderfully, and intricately written plot revolving around time travel, and in a lot of aspects, was a genre-defining film. So iconic was the film, that a car used as a prop, the DeLorean is still relevant today. Saying that Bollywoodâs attempt at a remake was disastrous would be grossly understating the fact. 4. Chocolate (The Usual Suspects) © Gramercy Pictures The Usual Suspects was a massively impressive film and remains one of the best neo-noir films of all time. People often compare it to Tarantinoâs Reservoir Dogs and trust us, thatâs high praise for a film. The filmography, the editing, the plot, everything was gritty and nuanced. The Usual Suspects won a number of Academy Awards, thatâs how good it was. © Pen N Camera International Chocolate, on the other hand, was a mess, and thatâs putting things mildly. The plot was convoluted, the cinematography, in a bid to be artsy was dreary, and the worst of all, it was a snoozefest compared to The Usual Suspects. 5. Prince (The Bourne Identity) © Universal Pictures Finally, we have the disaster that was Prince. The Jason Bourne series may not be as well-made or nearly as gripping as the first one, The Bourne Identity. However, they still are watchable. © Tips Music Films The same cannot be said for Prince. There is no other or softer way of saying it - the film was a cringe-fest. The film and the script were incoherent at times, and one was genuinely left asking themselves, âwhat the actual hell is going on,â through the entirety of the film. If you have had to sit through any of these Bollywood remakes, we feel strongly for you. Also, you need to learn to make better decisions in your life. View the full article

  21. Every successful actor needs a smart makeup artist who is good at blurring out imperfections for shirtless/ naked scenes on screen. This, apart from all the working out is what makes them attractive on-screen. For Brad Pitt, it has always been Jean Ann Black, his make-up artist. In fact, when push came to shove, she even went ahead and colour corrected Brad Pitt's bum for a scene requirement on the sets of The Legends Of The Fall. © Reuters Considering Jean is like a 'sister' to Brad, imagine how awkward these bum colour correcting sessions maybe. The remodeling of the space, meanwhile, was a total surprise and was carried out when she was out of town for three weeks straight. The Scott brothers began remodeling her stand-alone garage in Santa Monica into a guest suite complete with bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom, as well as a make-up studio and storage unit, and Brad Pitt was happy to help make the project successful.

  22. After ruling the box office for years, Shah Rukh Khan's net worth has been increasing every year, which is why it is not surprising that in 2020, Shah Rukh Khan has one of the highest net worth figures in the country. In such a scenario, with an annual income of Rs 256 crore, SRK's net worth can easily give any contemporary actor out there a tough competition. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter But before we get right into it, it's important to understand what consists of net worth. Net worth is the value of all assets, minus the total of all liabilities. Put another way, net worth is what is owned minus what is owed. This net worth calculator helps determine your net worth. It also estimates how net worth could grow or decline over the next 10 years. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter Shah Rukh Khanâs net worth has reportedly been estimated to be 600 million Dollars. This comes down to approximately Rs 4,575.9 crore. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter The assets aside from his annual income include the likes of luxury cars like BMW 6 series (convertible), Audi A6, BMW 7 series, BMW i8, Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, Mitsubishi Pajero SFX, Bentley Continental GT, and Harley Davidson Dyna Street Bob Toyota Land Cruiser Prado from his collection. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter Among properties, it is noteworthy to mention an estate called Villa K-93 in Palm Jumeirah, Dubai which is priced at Rs 17 crore. He also possesses a place in Park Lane, London which approximately costs big Rs 167 crore. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter Among other assets, fans also buy him things, this includes land on the Moon certified from the Lunar Republic Society. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter We all know SRK's stake in the IPL. He owns a strong and winning IPL team with a stake of 55% adding Rs 575 crore to his bag. The team as you must know is the all-time winners, Kolkata Knight Riders, also known for its initials as KKR! © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter Besides, he runs a production house under the name of Red Chillies which also consists of two huge components - production and VFX. The annual turnover of the same is around Rs 500 crore. Another venture is Kidzania, designed for children aged 4-14. The program blends learning and reality with entertainment. It is a four-hour experience where the kids can independently pick several activities and test their potential in a vast number of professions. © Shah Rukh Khan FC Official/ Twitter Besides that, having brand ambassador deals with Airtel, Pepsi, Hyundai, Sprite, Videocon are also noteworthy income sources.

  23. With no signs of the Coronavirus ending anytime soon, a complete lockdown all over the world continues to be in order. People arenât supposed to get out of their houses, working from home seems to be the only way to make things happen and sports, as we know it, has come to a sudden halt. Under such circumstances, it is obvious that the average time a person spends on his phone is going to increase rapidly. Gaming, streaming movies and web series, and reading articles on your smartphone are all bound to go up. Not sure how I feel about this ð¤·ð½ââï¸ #quarantinelife #SocialDistancing #screentime #COVIDã¼19 pic.twitter.com/qBvg1ejmtI â Eric K. Singhi, MD (@esinghimd) March 23, 2020 Even though COVID-19 is the scare of the hour, doctors are worried about a very specific kind of problem that has emerged as the byproduct of the lockdown against the virus - the âsmartphone pinkyâ syndrome. According to Dr Sachin Bhonsle, Sr. Consultant, Orthopedic Surgeon, Fortis Hospital Mulund, âthe regular use of phones, especially the one with a bigger and wider screen to type messages or emails causes the thumb and the other fingers to be over-used, through repetitive movements.â © Pexels As days of under lockdown go by, more and more people are complaining about pains and developing a deformity in their little finger (pinky finger). âShort term, this causes hypermobility of the smaller joints around the fingers; the ligaments of the thumb gradually become slightly stressed. Looking at this long term, over-use of the fingers causes stress in a repetitive manner and can further lead to Osteoarthritis, as the cartilage between the joints begins to degenerate,â he says. âWhen Arthritis sets in the fingers, there is a possibility of excess bone formation around the joints, which can then lead to enlargement or deformation of the finger.â © Pexels To what extent will the degenerative changes take place depends on multiple factors such as diet, family history and underlying health conditions but there are a few steps to combat this problem and nip it in the bud: 1. Avoid using your smartphone too often. 2. If you are using it, use it for shorter durations. 3. Divide texting or gaming time into shorter sessions. © Pexels 4. Take a break and put down your phone before your hand starts hurting. 5. Exercise your hand by stretching your fingers. 6. Instead of typing, use the swipe keyboard or use speech. 7. Use a stand for your mobile phone or airplay the content on TV. 8. If your hand is hurting, take an over-the-counter pain reliever to reduce swelling and inflammation. 9. Switch hands at periodic intervals, so the device isnât held in one hand for a long time. Staying at home all seven days of the week and not going out from time to time can get frustrating and our mobile phones have become one of the top ways to vent it out but during these testing times, you donât need more reasons to worry about, right? So, show your pinky finger some mercy and keep that phone aside for some time! View the full article
  24. After days of denying the spreading of the Coronavirus or Covid-19 at a community level in India, the government has finally accepted the presence of âlimited community transmissionâ or âstage 3â in the country, according to Livemint. What Exactly Is âCommunity Transmissionâ Aka âStage 3â? According to the World Health Organisation, âcommunity transmission is evidenced by the inability to relate confirmed cases through chains of transmission for a large number of cases, or by increasing positive tests through sentinel samples (routine systematic testing of respiratory samples from established laboratories).â In other words, if a community enters stage 3, a large portion of the population will get infected without knowing how they got exposed to the contagion ie; even if they didnât travel to the infected places or come in contact with anyone whoâs been tested positive. According to CNBC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for example, could not trace the source of a California patient in the USA, who contracted the virus in February 2020. The USA now has over 1,40,000 reported cases. âAt this time, the patientâs exposure is unknown,â the CDC had said in a statement. âItâs possible this could be an instance of community spread of COVID-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States.â Should India Be Worried About Entering Stage 3? On March 19, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) had said that they had examined over 800 random samples and found that the results did not indicate community transmission yet. "We can consider that we are in the community transmission stage only when there are about 20 to 30 per cent cases with no clue on how they got the virus," said Lav Aggarwal, a joint secretary in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, later in the week. "If India enters that stage, we will not hide it. We will tell people so that we can step up the level of alertness and awareness." © Center For Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy Having said that, the Centre for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy (CDDEP) believes the situation might be worse than the ICMR feels. According to them, stage 3 is already in India and began somewhere in the early days of March. Their report also says that between 300 and 400 million Indians are likely to be infected by July if no interventions are made (although, most of these cases will be mild). According to yet another report shared by The Economic Times, community transmission in India is âinevitableâ. ICMR director general Balram Bhargava said âthe virus will behave the same way it has behaved in China. It will follow the same pattern.â On March 14, 2020, Bhargava said that the âIf we manage 30 days (until April 14), if community transmission doesnât happen in the next 30 days, we may be at a good wicket.â What Do We Do In Case We Do Enter Stage 3? © Twitter The CDDEP recommends that in theory, social distancing can reduce the effectiveness of community transmission by over 75%. However, the task of carrying out the phenomenon on a scale as wide as the Indian population could be difficult. It is an absolute must for people over the age of 65 to take shelter as the virus is more effective towards them. The thought of a country like India with a population of 1.3 billion entering phase 3 is harrowing and the potential damage, irreversible. Therefore the best we can do now is just stay at home, we canât stress its significance enough. View the full article
  25. The ongoing coronavirus outbreak outbreak may have stalled things worldwide, it's safe to say that 2020 has seen kickass smartphones. We've already seen a ton of new phones that have come out so far this year, and the new OnePlus phones are next in line. While we don't exactly know when these new OnePlus phones will come out amidst all the chaos, we do have the specification details of the phones. Thanks to a tipster, we now have the complete specs of both the OnePlus 8 as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here's everything that you need to know - OnePlus 8 Pro The OnePlus 8 Pro is said to feature a 6.78-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It'll be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC and will have up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. As for the optics, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to sport a quad-camera setup with two 48MP sensors, along with an 8MP and a 5MP sensor. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal In terms of the battery, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to pack a 4,510mAh unit with support for up to 30W Warp Charging. This time around, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also said to have wireless charging and an IP rating. OnePlus 8 The OnePlus 8 will also be powered by the same processor and is expected to come with the same amount of RAM and storage. As for the display, the OnePlus 8 will obviously be a little smaller and hence it'll sport a 6.55-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal As for the cameras, the OnePlus 8 is said to sport a triple-camera setup which will include a 48MP sensor, a 16MP sensor, and a 2MP sensor. It'll have a 4,300mAh battery with support for 30W Warp charging, but there's no mention of wireless charging. It looks like the OnePlus 8 will also miss out on the IP rating. All this is making the OnePlus 8 Pro look like a way better phone with major upgrades. Also, Oppo's Find series phones usually give us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming OnePlus phones. So looking at the new Oppo Find X2, we think the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 will indeed be something to look forward to. Exclusive: They're coming! Here is the full specification list of the #OnePlus8 & 8 Pro. Seems like #OnePlus8Pro is gonna be a beast with 6.78" 120hz QHD+ Display and 48+48+8+5MP Camera Setup. Will have 30W Wireless Charging & IP68 Rating too. I'm so excited! #OnePlus8Series pic.twitter.com/j1AAo19q4J â Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) March 25, 2020 As mentioned before, we don't know when these phones will hit the market. There's a global pandemic going on right now, so it's safe to say that these phones won't be arriving anytime soon. Note: The header & social images are for representation only. That's not the final design of the upcoming OnePlus phones. View the full article
