  2. In a massively-anticipated interview that was broadcast this morning, Meghan and Harry met up with Oprah and blew our minds away with one shocking revelation after another. No subject was off-limits, as revealed in the beginning of the show itself, and that became increasingly apparent as the interview went on. But if you missed it or can’t spare the time for the 90-minute show, we’ve got you covered. Here are 9 of the biggest revelations from the interview that are all you need to get up to speed. 1. Meghan and Harry got married 3 days before their royal wedding © CBS “No one knows that, but we called the Archbishop and we just said, look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world but we want our union between us,” Meghan said, adding that “the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.” 2. Kate Middleton was actually the one who made Meghan cry, not the other way around © CBS The British media had reported extensively after the wedding that Meghan had made Kate cry before her wedding over flower girl dresses. Meghan revealed in the interview that, actually, “the reverse happened”. She went on to say that, at that time, Kate took accountability for her actions, brought her flowers, and apologised. “Everyone in the Institution knew it wasn’t true,” she said. And yet no one from the palace had bothered to set the media straight on the issue. 3. Meghan had suicidal thoughts during her time as a royal, and was refused help when she asked © CBS On the topic of her mental health, she revealed that she had been “ashamed to have to admit it, to Harry especially,” that she “just didn’t want to be alive any more.” “That was a very clear and real and frightening, constant thought,” she said, further adding that she went to “one of the senior people” in the Institution to get help but was refused because “it wouldn’t be good for the Institution.” “There’s nothing we can do to protect you because you’re not a paid employee of the Institution,” she said Human Resources had told her, when she went to them. 4. There were conversations around whether their son Archie would receive a title, and consequently any security, due to the colour of his skin © CBS Meghan revealed that in the last few months of her pregnancy, there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born” between Harry and family members she didn’t reveal because it “would be very damaging to them”. The palace told them that due to not being a prince, he wouldn’t receive any security or safety. When asked whether that was due to his race, Meghan said, “If that’s the assumption you’re making, then it’s a safe one.” She also revealed, on the topic of not taking the traditional picture with their child, that they “weren’t asked to take the picture”. 5. Meghan was essentially trapped in the house © CBS She admitted that she had been lonely and that, at one point, hadn’t left the house for more than twice in four months — yet had been not allowed to go out because she “was everywhere [on the media]”. On the topic of seeking help for her mental health, she mentioned that there was no way for her to get it on her own without the Institution’s support, revealing that she didn’t have possession of her keys, her passport, or any such items inside the palace. 6. The royal family cut off their security after their move to Canada © CBS Shortly before the world went into lockdown due to the pandemic situation, the couple were told that their security detail was going to be removed due to their “change of status”. With their exact location being public knowledge, “courtesy of The Daily Mail”, they realised they weren’t safe where they were and moved to American director and producer Tyler Perry’s home in Los Angeles for several months. 7. They didn’t quit or walk away, but rather suggested a “part-time” or “non-senior” role in the royal family © CBS While the media had gone wild with news that the couple had stepped back from their royal duties to live more independent lives, the couple now clarified that they hadn’t “left the family.” Meghan said that they had specified that they were stepping back from senior roles to be just like the several other royal members who “earn a living, live on palace grounds, [and] can support the Queen if and when called upon.” Prince Harry also added, on the topic of whether they “blindsided the Queen [with their stepping back]”: “No, I’ve never blindsided my grandmother. I have too much respect for her.” 8. Prince Charles stopped taking Harry’s calls © Shutterstock Prince Harry revealed that, while they were in Canada, his father stopped taking his calls after two conversations about the couple’s role in the royal family. He said his father told him to “put this all in writing, what your plan is.” When asked why, he said it was because “he took matters into [his] own hands.” 9. Meghan and Harry are having a girl © AP In lighter news, they also revealed the *** of the child they are having. “It’s a girl,” Harry said, to much excitement. “Two [children] is it,” Meghan added when Oprah prompted. And those were some of the highlights. What was the most shocking part of this interview for you? Tell us in the comments below. View the full article

  4. In another episode of this happens only in India, the auction of a liquor store in a village in Rajasthan’s Hanumangarh district that started at around Rs 72 lakh got sold at over Rs500 crores. Yes, you read that right! The bidding started at 11 am in the morning and ended way after midnight and it’s shocking but the highest bid was around Rs500 crores. Auctioning of liquor shops is not a new concept and recently, e-auctions have started and around 7000 liquor stores are going under the hammer. © BCCL Former state chief minister Vasundhara Raje had earlier abolished the system but now under Ashok Gehlot, the bidding system has restarted again. For this auction, bidding started at Rs 72 lakh in the morning and bidders kept on bidding high prices for the store that the bidding went onto till midnight and ended around 2 am at night with the highest price quoted at Rs510 crores. © BCCL The liquor store was bought by two women belonging to the same family and one of them is Kiran Kanwar. The news has left many people astonished and even the officials from the Excise department who had never expected the bid to go up this high. What do you think?

  5. As the world celebrates the indomitable spirit and fantastic achievements of women, the Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Capitals carried out a special social media campaign in honour of International Women's Day. Focusing on the Superwomen of the national capital, the franchise got in touch with four women from within the city who are breaking the societal shackles to pursue their passion, as a part of their #MainHoonNayiDilli campaign. View this post on Instagram One of these four stories is of Mehrunnisha Shokat Ali, a veteran of 10 years as a bouncer in the high-class clubs of Delhi’s popular Hauz Khas area who went against the norms of the society, stood her ground against a father who didn’t support her wishes and finally did what she always wanted to do - protect people. “I grew up in an extremely conservative family, consisting of my parents, 3 sisters and 2 brothers. As the girls of the house, we were expected to do the household chores, get married young and stick to the path that had been followed by all the women in our family for generations. But that never felt right to me,” Mehrunnisha said in an interview with Delhi Capitals. View this post on Instagram “I wanted to become a policewoman. The power, the respect and the ability to protect others really appealed to me. But my father was against the idea and despite several pleas he refused to budge. I started losing hope and tried to move on from this pipe dream,” she said. “When I was 16, I came to Delhi with my little brother for his audition at a singing reality show. There, I saw bouncers for the first time, handling the crowd and keeping everyone safe. I realized this could be the way for me to finally live a part of my dream. I was always an active child and enjoyed spending time at my father’s gym. When I walked up to the bouncers and told them I wanted to do what they did, they saw my well-built physique and gave me a chance,” Mehrunnisha opened up about the beginning of her dreams once again. View this post on Instagram “My father once again opposed, but this time I was determined to fight for it. Eventually, he came around and I became the first female bouncer in the bustling lanes of Hauz Khas – Delhi’s popular nightlife spot,” she said. “The male bouncers didn’t accept me as their equals and even male patrons at the bars used to misbehave with me. They mocked me and questioned how I could be a bouncer if I couldn’t defend myself against them,” she said, explaining the typical gender-bias the job of a bouncer carries with it. View this post on Instagram “However, their words never bothered me. My only concern, then and now, is to protect girls and make sure nobody misbehaves with them. I take great pride in this responsibility. I have been a bouncer for more than 10 years now, and I have worked hard to prove my mettle and earn my due respect. I have also encouraged many young girls, including my little sister, to overcome their fears and take up this profession. Now, when I walk into the club, men view me with respect and girls feel safer seeing a woman bouncer,” she concluded. View the full article
  6. Weddings are a huge deal in India. There is excessive drama, a lot of fun, people getting drunk and also we see many people crying. And why not, after all a daughter leaves her home to live with her husband. However, no-one can expect something this tragic. Recently, a newlywed woman who was still wearing her bridal lehenga died of a heart attack due to excessive crying during her bidaai ceremony. © Unsplash According to News18, a heart attack was caused due to crying continuously or stress-induced at that moment. This incident took place in Sonepur, Odisha. The bidaai took place on Friday morning and at that time the bride was healthy and put-together. Gupteswari Sahoo (Rosy), was born to Murali Sahoo and Menaka of Julunda village in Binika block in the district. She was wed to Bisikesan Pradhan of Tentulu village and the wedding was small and happened at the girl’s parental home. At the time of her bidaai, she was seen crying inconsolably and she kept on crying continuously without stopping. The onlookers also reported that she cried so much that she fainted and a guest who attended the wedding also said that Rosy was distressed as her father also passed away a few months ago. © Unsplash Many people tried to revive her as people thought that she faints under emotional duress. However, once Rosy collapsed all her family members tried to revive her and bring her back to consciousness but nothing worked. She was then taken to Dunguripali CHC emergency and there the doctors declared her dead on arrival. The cause of death was identified as cardiac failure. This incident is scary and extremely tragic at the same time. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below! View the full article
  7. Leading financial services platform, ETMONEY’s latest investment report has debunked several myths about the financial behaviour of women. The report reveals that in each of the past four years, women investors on ETMONEY have earned around 10% more returns every year as compared to their male counterparts, with their investments offering the best returns in 2020, the year that challenged every investor. This difference in the average annual returns earned by men and women is reflective of two key traits - women investors turning savvier in finance and honing healthier financial habits. © ET Money Women investors have also mastered the art of maximizing tax savings - with an average of around 15% of their portfolio in ELSS funds, as compared to only 12% of men. This has helped women combine tax-savings with wealth creation. Additionally, women investors on ETMONEY also have a near-perfect asset-allocation ratio as per their age. They have demonstrated an extraordinary understanding of market movements, upping their investments during market corrections. © ET Money Besides women demonstrating the hallmarks of being more sound investors as compared to men, they also have their eyes set on their investment goals as they are more regular with their SIP instalments as compared to men. With 4X growth in the amount invested using the platform over the past 4 years, and more women across all age groups and geographies joining in, women are gaining confidence in their ability to invest. This is clear from the rising trend of women from tier II and tier III cities taking to investing, changing the conventional dynamics. “The role of women in India has undergone a sea change compared to yesteryears, challenging archaic notions of their impact on society at large. Today’s crop of modern women is standing tall and playing an active role in IT, Business, Finance, Law, Politics and other major fields. Given our rapidly changing world, financial equality and independence are imperative, and more so for the ones who aspire to build wealth, chase their dreams and live life on their own terms. This realisation is becoming increasingly pervasive as more women in India are becoming cognizant of the importance of investing. At ETMONEY, our primary objective with the investment report is to challenge the myth that women are not as savvy as men in terms of investing, or that they have a risk-averse ‘savings’ vs an ‘investment’ mindset. We are grateful to be a part of the financial journey of these women, and urge everyone to take charge of their finances and their lives,” said Mukesh P Kalra, Founder & CEO of ETMONEY.

  8. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, last year was great for Ali Fazal in terms of his acting projects. After the huge success of the second installment of Mirzapur and the much-awaited international release of the film Death On The Nile, things are looking up for Ali Fazal. These days, Ali Fazal is busy shooting for two of his upcoming films which include the likes of Bhoot Police which will also star Arjun Kapoor, and Tadka directed by Prakash Raj. But when it comes to Ali Fazal's style statement, he's never failed to surprise us by trying out quirky seasonal trends. We usually see these as a part of outfits he wears whenever he steps out, be it for work or even promotional events for that matter. Recently, Ali Fazal was spotted at an event in another such experimental outfit. Take a look at what he wore here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Ali Fazal was seen wearing a crisp white shirt with a pair of mid-rise flare jeans in grey with a pair of black shoes. Take a close look at the jeans here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The same jeans fit for women are usually called the 'mom jeans'. The term 'Mom Jeans' first came into mainstream culture back in May 2003, in one of those famous Saturday Night Live skits, with an episode written by Tina Fey. The episode followed the story of a fake brand of jeans called 'Mom Jeans', which used the tagline "For this Mother's Day, don't give Mom that bottle of perfume. Give her something that says, 'I'm not a woman anymore...I'm a mom!" © Viral Bhayani Mom jeans have excess space in the zipper, crotch, and leg areas as can be seen with Ali Fazal's pair of jeans as well. On the work front, for a new role, Ali is actively learning kickboxing under the MMA fighter Rohit Nair. This leads us to believe that he is soon going to be a part of some gripping action sequences in upcoming films. We can't wait to see Ali Fazal surprise us yet again with his work.

  9. In another episode of 'this happens only in India', a woman from West Bengal changed her name to something that triggered a series of queries on social media and also reminded us of one of our favorite scenes from the TV show FRIENDS. A woman published an advertisement in the newspaper informing the change of her name from Anamika Mazumder to ‘Supreme Imperium’ and this move has many people on the internet questioning her choices. People are confused and worried as to why she chose an uncommon name and are trying to make sense of it. Checkout the post here- I want to know her story pic.twitter.com/4hQUdOBafN — wanandaf vision (@nah_im_abdulla) March 6, 2021 The affidavit said, “The woman, a resident of Bararankua village under Ramnagar police station in the East Midnapore district posted the affidavit saying from March 1, she would be known by her new name of ‘Supreme Imperium’.” A part of the advertisement in the newspaper read as, “Henceforth, I recognized and known as Supreme Imperium instead of Anamika Mazumder.” Her unusual name choice has now made the advertisement go viral on the internet. The post on the internet has almost around 8.2K likes and around 1.2K retweets on Twitter.

  10. While the captain of the Indian cricket team is going through a bit of a rough patch when it comes to collating runs for his Test side, one of the greatest joys of his life came back in January 2021 when he became a father for the first time. His daughter Vamika, who shares her birthday with the legendary Indian batsman Rahul Dravid, is just a little over a month and a half old now. The feeling of becoming a father is still fresh to the Indian skipper and he penned down his thoughts towards his wife Anushka Sharma and the baby in an Instagram post, on the occasion of Women’s Day. View this post on Instagram “Seeing the birth of a child is the most spine chilling, unbelievable and amazing experience a human being can have. After witnessing that, you understand the true strength and divinity of women and why God created life inside them. It's because they are way stronger than us men. Happy Women's Day to the most fiercely, compassionate and strong woman of my life and to the one who's going to grow up to be like her mother. And also a Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women of the world,” Kohli wrote in the caption. Kohli had taken a paternity leave from his duties as an Indian cricketer in the middle of India’s tour of Australia and came back home after the first of four Test matches, which took place at the Adelaide Oval. Now, after defeating the England side 3-1 in a Test series, the cricketer has a couple of months at home, albeit packed with limited-overs cricket against Joe Root and Co. as the five-match T20I series begins from March 12. The Men in Blue would then play the Englishmen in a three-match ODI series before Kohli starts preparing for his role as the captain of the Indian Premier League franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and hope to finally win the trophy of the most lucrative T20 league in the world. The future also holds a long time away from family for Kohli as following the conclusion of the IPL in May, the Men in Blue will once again be on the road, traveling to England for the World Test Championship against New Zealand followed by a five-match Test series versus England.

  11. President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took to Twitter to wish women on the occasion of International Women’s Day and also urged the people to take a resolve to promote gender justice and eliminate gender inequality. President Kovind took to Twitter and wrote, “On the occasion of International Women’s Day, greetings and best wishes to all fellow citizens. Women in our country are setting new records and achievements in various fields. Let us collectively resolve to promote gender justice and eliminate inequality between women and men.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi saluted the spirit of women and also saluted the women on International Women’s Day. He took to Twitter and wrote, "Saluting our indomitable #NariShakti on International Women's Day! India takes pride in the many accomplishments of the women of our nation. It is our Government's honor to be getting the opportunity to work towards furthering women empowerment across a wide range of sectors.” Checkout the tweet here- Saluting our indomitable #NariShakti on International Women's Day! India takes pride in the many accomplishments of the women of our nation. It is our Government’s honour to be getting the opportunity to work towards furthering women empowerment across a wide range of sectors. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2021 Here’s what people on the internet have to say about PM Modi’s tweet on Women’s Day- Thank you Modi ji. May we women be truly empowered enough to make a remarkable difference not just to our lives but to our families, our community & hoping that our women in every nook & corner of this great Nation receive the basics that are lacking in their life. — FlameKppr (@kppr87) March 8, 2021#NariShakti को नमन — Karan Singh Shekhawat 🇮🇳 (@KaranShekhawa1) March 8, 2021नारीशक्ति को नमन। #NariShakti — ब्रह्मानंद मिश्र 🇮🇳 (@BNMishraji) March 8, 2021Cheers 🥂to Women Power — Sona (@sona0906) March 8, 2021Woman is power many congratulations — ER ABHISHEK THAKUR (@ERABHISHEKTHAK1) March 8, 2021Union Minister Smriti Irani also took to Twitter to wish women and persuade them to be the torchbearers for change.

Wishing everyone - women & supporters of Women-led Development, a Happy International Day of Women!” Defense minister Rajnath Singh also took to Twitter and wrote, “Today, women have become an integral part of India’s security and defense architecture. The targeted outcome of such empowerment is to create an atmosphere where women feel free, safe, and secure to pursue any vocation, profession or take a road less taken.” View the full article
  12. After the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League was taken away from Indian soil only to be hosted in the United Arab Emirates, the 14th edition of the tournament is once again back at home, although with some massive precautionary measures to keep the coronavirus pandemic at bay. One of those measures, as confirmed by the IPL Governing Council (GC) would be that none of the eight franchises will be allowed home-ground advantage during the season which will be held behind closed doors (welcoming of spectators will be reconsidered during the tournament). #IPL2021 @IPL 2021 from April 9 to May 30, no home games, no fans Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Ahmedabad - will host the 60 matches of the tournament this season with Ahmedabad hosting the three play-offs and the final. Read More ▶️ https://t.co/olx61oruaj pic.twitter.com/oswga2bD6O — TOI Sports (@toisports) March 8, 2021 The GC’s call to take away home-advantage from all of the franchises came after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had previously decided to not hold any IPL 2021 matches at Mohali, Jaipur, and Hyderabad due to the Covid-19 outbreak and farmer’s protest in the region. Teams from these cities had raised an issue about the potential of being at a clear disadvantage while playing at the competitors’ grounds throughout the season, which the GC found valid and therefore established the rule that none of the eight sides will play in their own city. No home venues No spectators at the start 11 double headers Each team will travel just thrice during the league stage Everything you need to know about #IPL2021 — Cricbuzz (@cricbuzz) March 7, 2021 Desperate times call for desperate measures and this is certainly one of them. It was therefore obvious that not everyone participating in the tournament either as a player or an official will be completely convinced and will find some issues with the new emergency model. One of the IPL franchise official said the BCCI are denying MS Dhoni to play his potential last IPL in Chennai. If there are to be no crowds, what stops CSK to play in Chennai and Mumbai Indians to play in Mumbai. (To Cricbuzz). — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) March 8, 2021 One such franchise official spoke about his dismay with the fact that former India skipper and one of the most successful players in IPL history, Mahendra Singh Dhoni would not get to play what is possibly his final season in the league, on Chennai ground, the city he remained loyal to throughout his IPL journey. “You are denying MS Dhoni to play his potential last IPL in Chennai. If there are to be no crowds, what stops CSK to play in Chennai and Mumbai Indians to play in Mumbai,” the official told CricBuzz. View this post on Instagram As unfortunate as that is, fans of the Indian Premier League argued that one player, regardless of who he is, will never be bigger than the game itself and that the entire structure of a tournament must not be changed just to accommodate a single athlete’s legacy. Lol....IPL will not be scheduled according to one franchise or player...no one is bigger than the game not even fraud finisher thala... — (@Pullshot_expert) March 8, 2021What do we call this being dumb or something else. No Home advantage means not for fun. It is the point here as a precaution to safety. — Praveen Kumar Bheema #indian🇮🇳 (@praveen_bheema) March 8, 2021Lol, whoever said it has an IQ less than room temperature. That would have been really unfair to teams like RR, Punjab, Hyderabad. I am an MSdian for life but tournament like IPL doesn't revolve around one player or team. — Akshat Abhishek (@akshatabhishek0) March 8, 2021This argument is totally illogical. If there is no Chennai crowd available then how does it matter if Dhoni plays his last IPL in Chepauk or Wankhede or Lords? Also it doesn't matter at all to Dhoni otherwise he wouldn't have retired without a farewell match. — Rishabh (@HereComesTrophy) March 8, 2021I think it's the people behind him (maybe the csk management) who what him to play his potential last ipl at Chennai. I think dhoni couldn't care less about where he plays or finished his last ipl, as far as the team plays well, his last ipl is in no danger of losing its charm. — JayC (@Mediocre_Genius) March 8, 2021 View the full article

  14. The coronavirus pandemic has left the Indian cricket team with a unique predicament of having too much cricket on their platter and this may lead to some rather drastic measures with the hopes of participating in every tournament. Following the dominating 3-1 win in the Test series against the touring England side, the Men in Blue have qualified for the finals of the World Test Championship against Kane Williamson-led New Zealand cricket team. The series is to be held at London’s Lord’s Cricket Ground in June 2021. View this post on Instagram Coincidentally, Team India has yet another major cricketing event to tend to - the Asia Cup (in a 20-over format) scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka around the same time as above. So, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is trying to negotiate a situation with the Asian Cricket Council in which they can send a second India roster completely dedicated to the Asia Cup while one team remains in England itself. Top Source (in TOI) said "If Asia Cup happens this year, India will have no other option but to send a second string side for the tournament". — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) March 8, 2021 "There's no other choice. We can't risk the preparation for the series in England. And cricketers can't twice undergo quarantine. If the Asia Cup happens, India will have no option but to send a second-string squad," top sources confirmed as per a report in the Times of India. To be honest, the priority for the Men in Blue will be the World Test Championship, which means that some of the biggest names of the squad including Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Jasprit Bumrah would be likely to miss out on the Asia Cup, even after the WTC gets over, as they have yet another five-Test series against England on their turf. Now, if the BCCI does get the green-light on assembling a second team, one of the biggest topics of discussion becomes that of the second captain for the shortest format of the game. Fans of the Bleed Blue army are debating the potential second captain on Twitter: Shreyas iyyer or Rishabh pant shld lead If Rohit and Virat both not going https://t.co/NGy8moOMpJ — This is Rohit & Shreyas stan Account (chitra) (@chittu_chitra12) March 8, 2021My Asia cup 11 Sanju samson Devdutt padikal Shreyas iyyer Suryakumar yadav Ishan Kishan Rahul tewtia Shivam dube / Vijay Shankar Bhuvnewhwar kumar (captain) T Natrajan Chahal V chakrvarty @CricCrazyJohns how's it ?? — Onkar Gawade (@OnkarGawade11) March 8, 20211) KL rahul (c) 2) Shikhar dhawan 3) Shreyas iyer 4) Surya kumar yadav 5) isan kishan ||| 6) Hardik pandaya 7) rahul Tewatia / w sundar 8) Bhuvneshwar kumar 9) T Natnajan 10) yuzvendra cahal 11) Deepak cahar Reserves: N saini Shardul M Pandey Samson — Dream11insider (@Dream11Insider) March 8, 2021Send a team under KL Rahul, ensures India's participation as well as some game time for deserving talents like SKY.

  15. The head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri has many traits that make him an enigmatic figure, and getting worked up about social media trolls isn’t one of them. Following India’s dominating series win against the touring England cricket team in a four-Test clash, the former Indian skipper got in front of the camera for an online interview and addressed the numerous social media posts that revolve around him and his fondness for alcoholic beverages. .@RaviShastriOfc reacts to his memes doing the rounds #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/pNvZxKgUmM — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) March 7, 2021 "It's banter all the way. They do it to have fun. It's at my expense, but it's okay," Ravi Shastri in the post-match press conference the day after his Men in Blue thrashed Joe Root and CO. in just two and a half days to win the series at the newly inaugurated Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. "Have a drink on my name. When you post those kinds of things, so many people have a laugh," the India coach said. "Enjoy, it doesn't affect me.” Doctors extracting alcohol to make sanitizer pic.twitter.com/XKAx4Hh2H3 — Sir Yuzvendra (parody) (@SirYuzvendra) March 2, 2021 "In cricket, if you are playing well and succeeding, people will be happy with you, and when you are not winning, you have to face some kicks and slaps," he added. While some would still like to carry on with the trolling trend, Shastri’s simplistic response to the situation has led to getting support from the masses: congratulations Ravi. Well Said. next time, don't even reply. They don't deserve replies. U r the best manager, who delivered a lot.

One such incident took place at the end of the third match of the India-England series when writer and columnist Shobhaa De tagged the coach on a Twitter meme that made fun of Shastri’s fondness for drinking. Smart! ⁦@RaviShastriOfc⁩ pic.twitter.com/Mc22OIxVmb — Shobhaa De (@DeShobhaa) February 26, 2021 Instead of reacting in a not-so-friendly manner, the former athlete kept his cool and responded with class. Love the banter ! Feels good to bring some smiles in these tough times 🏻 https://t.co/mzPe5MtItj — Ravi Shastri (@RaviShastriOfc) February 27, 2021 Shastri is considered to be one of the most polarising people who has held the position of the head coach of the Indian cricket team, especially after someone as credible as Anil Kumble ended up resigning from the post following disagreements with skipper Virat Kohli. However, if we take a look at the kind of dominance that Team India has had across all formats of the game, especially in bilateral series, Shastri’s case as one of the most successful Indian head coaches becomes really strong. After the comeback series in Australia and a 3-1 victory over the English side, India are once against the best team in world cricket in the longest format of the game and are looking forward to locking horns against the mighty New Zealand roster in the finals of the World Test Championship come June 2021 at London’s Lord’s Cricket Ground.

  16. Recently Siddhant Chaturvedi took to Instagram to post something that fans had been pointing out for over a month now. It looks like Siddhant Chaturvedi has a celebrity look-alike and the actor is taking it in great strides. He posted a close-up picture of his face from Gully Boy in contrast with the actor, Rege-Jean Page. Take a look at the post here: View this post on Instagram Sharing a collage of the two pictures on Instagram, the Gully Boy actor wrote, “Sacchi? ” The actor in contrast with Siddhant Chaturvedi, Rege-Jean Page played the role of Simon Basset or the Duke Of Hastings from a recent show on Netflix called Bridgerton. which has already received over 82 million views. Also starring Phoebe Dynevor, Bridgerton is set during the Regency era in England, following the lives of eight close-knit siblings of the powerful Bridgerton family as they attempt to find love. View this post on Instagram However, what caught Siddhant's fans' attention was the fact that Rege-Jean Page as Duke of Hastings holds a striking resemblance to Siddhant. From his stubble to the slightly curled hair, to a similar-looking hairstyle. People were also amused by how the two actors had similar facial features. In fact, they could even play twins in a film one day and no one would guess them apart. Although, the comments' section was filled with people who were split into two teams: ones who nodded head in agreement and the other side that just didn't see any similarities. Later, Siddhant posted another Instagram post where he was seen prepping for another role with the caption, “Manzil jitni upar hogi, Ghutne Utne phootengey. Thikaano pe ruk gaye agar… toh peeche waale lootengey. Isliye Chal Bhaag! #MyNotes #Yudhra.” The film Yudhra is being directed by Ravi Udyawar who also made Mom starring Sridevi back in 2017. Siddhant will be acting alongside Malavika Mohanan in this film. Besides this film, Siddhant is also prepping for the release of his upcoming film Bunty Aur Babli 2. The second installment of the iconic film will also star Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji & Sharvari Wagh. The film is scheduled to release on April 23, 2021. Alongside its film, Siddhant will also be working on Shakun Batra’s next project alongside Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday. View the full article

From Bunty Aur Babli 2 to Bhool Bhulaiya 2, here is a list of 5 Bollywood sequels we are expecting to watch this year: 1. Go Goa Gone 2 The first instalment of the film left us on the floor crying from laughter, as Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, and the rest of the equally brilliant cast floored us with their hilarious performances.

The cast for the sequel includes Janhvi Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan, Lakshya Lalwani, and Abhishek Banerjee, among others. 4.

  18. Butt acne can be described as a weird bumpy texture or spots on your buttocks that sometimes, also hurt. These bumps can also look and feel like pimples. However, while they're called butt acne, they're not actually acne. While 'butt acne' is more common than you think, it is more likely folliculitis—a kind of acne that is slightly different from the acne most people get on their face. These bumps are usually caused by inflammation of the hair follicles and sometimes, also itch a lot. But do you know for sure that you have it? © istock On the bum, the folliculitis has hair in the centre of what looks like a red pimple, and white gooey material inside the bump, this is often the dead skin and the white blood cells. Usually, butt acne appears when there is a bit of friction caused in the region, which automatically means that you'll experience more of it in the Summer months and it can be exaggerated when you wear tight-fitted clothes. So, how does one get rid of butt acne? 1. Actively Exfoliate Your Skin © istock You could use an apricot scrub or even a mild chemical exfoliator with ingredients such as lactic or glycolic acids) or beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) to keep dead skin cells from clogging your pores. This will prevent the formation of new bumps and get rid of the clogged gunk from the butt region. 2. Choose Breathable Fabrics © istock The lighter and looser your briefs and the pair of pants or shorts you're wearing will be, the more your skin gets room to breathe. Your skin is then less likely to experience folliculitis flare-ups as well. Trapped sweat and friction can cause easy inflammation so, steer clear of polyester blends and other clingy fabrics in the Summer months. __ECOMPRODUCT__1196__ 3. See A DermatologistVisit a dermatologist who can recommend spot treatments for a bad case of inflammation that hurts. Spot treatments are great for reducing inflammation and killing the bacteria once and for all. 4. Change Out Of Sweaty Clothes © istock Take off the sweaty workout gear you wore to the gym as soon as you come back home. Sweaty clothes can trigger inflammation and make things worse. Ideally, get in a shower to wash off all the sweat so you don't give the bacteria a thriving atmosphere it can grow in. View the full article
  19. Actor Mithun Chakraborty finally put an end to all the speculations around him joining the Bharatiya Janata Party, as he arrived at the Brigade Parade Ground in Kolkata on Sunday for the mega rally held by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Speculations were already rife after the news spread that Mithun Chakraborty as well as Sourav Ganguly both would be seen at the rally and would also possibly join the BJP. © Instagram/Mithun_Chakraborty FC More news around this subject came in when Chakraborty had earlier hosted Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat at his Mumbai residence. © ANI Chakraborty had said, “I have a spiritual relation with him. It is a very deep spiritual relation. There was a plan that he would come to my home when he visits Mumbai. It so happened that I returned to Mumbai from Lucknow after a shoot and he too is in Mumbai. So ‘jud gaye hum (we connected)’,” However, Chakraborty had earlier denied any plans to join politics or the BJP, but speculations of him joining the ruling party were quite strong. Even the National General Secretary of BJP, Kailash Vijayvargiya met with Chakraborty at his residence in Belgachia. © ANI Mithun's presence in the rally today right ahead of PM Modi's address finally cleared the air. Addressing the crowd, Mithun da got the crowd going by saying this line: "Here is my new dialogue. Ami joldhorao noi, bele borao noi... ami ekta cobra, ek chobol-ei chhobi (Don't mistake me for a harmless snake, I am a pure cobra, one strike and you become a photograph." His words were met by a cheering crowd. Mithun was also a part of the Rajya Sabha by the Trinamool Congress, in 2014. However, his stint in politics was short-lived and he resigned from his post in 2016, citing health issues. © Twitter/Swapan 55 © Twitter/Swapan 55 Mitun's name was involved in the Saradha scam controversy, where, besides him, other leaders from TMC were also questioned regarding the same. Post this, Chakraborty decided to stay away from the public eye in terms of politics and it was also rumoured that he went under treatment abroad. Meanwhile, as per the visuals, a decent crowd was seen at the rally and Prime Minister Modi addressed everyone ahead of West Bengal's eight-phase assembly, which will commence on March 27.

  20. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called on the nation to buy medicines at a significantly affordable rate from Jan-Aushadhi Kendras. This came after the Prime Minister celebrated Janaushudi Diwas and inaugurated the 7,500th Jan-Aushadhi Kendra at North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences in Shillong. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurates 7500th Janaushadhi Kendra at NEIGRIHMS, Shillong, via video conferencing pic.twitter.com/az16PJTO3s — ANI (@ANI) March 7, 2021 Addressing the event via video conference, PM Modi mentioned how he thinks this initiative will certainly help the poor more than anyone. "Medicines are expensive, that's why we have PM 'Jan Aushadhi ' yojana for the poor which saves their money. Some people who do not buy medicines due to how expensive they are, are now purchasing medicines. I urge people to buy medicines at an affordable cost from Janaushadhi Kendra. If people call it 'Modi ki Dukaan' then buy it from that centre," © Twitter/Narendra Modi While interacting with the beneficiaries, PM Modi further also said "The PM Janaushadhi Pariyojana is being run across the country for poor and middle-income families. This yojana is a medium of seva (service) and rozgar (employment) as it also provides employment opportunities to the youth. As part of the scheme, sanitary pads for girls available at Rs 2.5." According to PM Modi, to spread more awareness about 'Jan Aushadhi', a whole week, from 1st March to 7th March, would be dedicated to it and marked as 'Jan Aushadhi Week' across the nation, along with the theme, 'Jan Aushadhi - Seva bhi, Rozgar bhi'. © Twitter/Narendra Modi This development comes after PM Modi spoke to a woman named Rubina from Madhya Pradesh, who shared her experience about how she benefitted from using Janaushadhi Yojana. She said "My son has some medical issues. I used to buy Rs 5,000 medicines for him per month and could not afford it. But my neighbour told me about affordable medicines available at 'Modi Ji ki dukaan'. I went there and purchased medicines for Rs 2,000 only. I am happy that Modi Ji is helping us," The Pariyojana's initiative offers budget-friendly medicines for everyone and has around 7,499 stories in all the districts covered. In 2020, the sales led to a total savings of Rs 3,600 approximately for common citizens, since the medicines were cheaper by at least 50 to 90 per cent than market rates. Even Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers, Mr D V Sadananda Gowda was a part of the video conferencing. As soon as the video conferencing concluded, many people shared their views on Twitter.

View this post on Instagram Vinesh blanked Canada’s Diana Mary Helen Weicker in the 53kg title clash and the score was 4-0, as she bagged the gold.

  22. Recently, there has been a ton of light shed on how the media treats female celebrities. Interviewers and reporters with access to famous personalities have long tried to catch them off-guard and dig out reactions worthy of sensational news. To no one’s surprise, many have gone overboard and crossed boundaries, asking especially invasive and sexist interview questions when it comes to female celebrities. Some may think these were isolated or minor incidents, but the fact is that if we were to outline all of them in one place, we would sooner run out of paper (or the digital equivalent of it) than reach the end. So, rather than creating an exhaustive list, here are six times female celebs had been treated horribly by interviewers and asked sexist questions no man would’ve been subjected to: 1. This interview where the guy incessantly probed into Sunny Leone’s background in adult entertainment, saying that there are “many married women who view her as a threat to their husbands” and that “they would be taken away by Sunny Leone”. To which, of course, she easily replied “I have my own husband” and that “Sorry, ladies, I don’t want your husband.” The interview went increasingly and disgustingly downhill, with him trying to instigate a response out of her about how she “felt” about various (often made-up) instances of people holding a bias against her due to “her past” that will apparently “continue to haunt” her. I would go on but… it’s much of the same BS. Have a look yourself, if you can stand it: 2. This Q&A session where a reporter asked Priyanka Chopra who she would want to co-host with on Filmfare Awards, and then went on to ask “Don’t you think if you and Shah Rukh hosted together, then we would’ve gotten to see more ‘romance and masti [fun]’?” With a smile, she shut him down saying that “that’s her job” and that she could do that with anyone. But of course the guy couldn’t get the hint and kept prodding her with Shah Rukh Khan’s name until she went, “You want me to take his name, right? Or you want that some kind of drama is created?” 3. This interview where a reporter asked Parineeti Chopra, point-blank, no-joke, if she thought going on a foodyatra as promotions for her movie “Daawat-e-Ishq” was a good idea since she had “already faced so much criticism for her weight”. Big yikes. Parineeti replied, “I’m sorry but this question is ridiculous for me,” and set her straight in not so many words that gym was a concept that existed—not that that should be any of our concerns. The reporter, though, continued to put her foot in her mouth. But Parineeti simply reiterated her point and gently but firmly shut her down. 4. This whole interview with Diane Sawyers that Britney Spears went through when she was merely 22 years old, where she was ruthlessly questioned about her relationship with Justin Timberlake and even brought to tears, asking to stop the interview. “He has gone on television and pretty much said you broke his heart,” then went on to accuse, "You did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering. What did you do?" The entire interview seems to paint Britney as the bad guy in the relationship, and honestly that’s not even the worst of it. You can check out the video here if you’re curious: 5. This creepy guy who seems obsessed with female superhero costumes and what goes on underneath them, asking intrusive questions to both Scarlet Johansson and Anne Hathaway regarding their roles as Black Widow and Catwoman respectively. With Anne Hathaway, it starts seemingly innocently, although I’m not sure what could be innocent about someone commenting on a woman’s body, movie star or not. “You are in great shape. You’re always in great shape, but you had to make sure you were in perfect shape for this one, didn’t you?” But then, as expected, it got weird. “What was that suit like? It looked comfortable to wear but it looked like it was form fitting, was it?” It didn’t end there, with him pressing her about her diet regimen and work out… Thank goodness for Anne Hathaway, though, who quickly questioned whether he was trying to lose weight and gave this remarkable quip that I’m absolutely going to use every chance I get — “No, no, seriously, we have to talk about this. What, what do you want? Are you trying to fit into a catsuit?” 6. If you thought that was bad, then you better believe it gets worse. This man, when he had the chance to interview Scarlet Johansson and Jeremy Renner, asked Scarlet, weird hand gestures and all, whether she was “able to wear undergarments” under her suit. “What is going on? Since when did people start asking people about their underwear?” Scarlet exclaimed. Any sane person would back off, but this guy was not to be deterred. “Is it inappropriate?” he asked. And, honestly, I can’t do this anymore, here’s the whole thing: The list could go on and on, but I’m going to end it here for the sake of all of our sanity. Do you know any interviews like these? Call them out in the comments! View the full article
  23. When it comes to controversies and being outspoken about certain matters, Kangana Ranaut always makes headlines with her Tweets. From dealing with the bigwigs of Bollywood to stirring a debate with politicians, there have been several feuds that have left the audience divided. © Viacom Motion Pictures Recently, she also called Tapsee Pannu a 'Sasti' actor, further intensifying their already-ongoing feud.

After almost a decade long struggle I was told I am too good an actor to be a Bollywood leading lady, curly hair and vulnerable voice made it worse, I signed Queen thinking this will never release, signed it for money with that money I went to film school in Newyork (cont) https://t.co/bOnicdmKet — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) March 7, 2021 Kangana took to Twitter to talk about the movie and wrote, "After almost a decade long struggle I was told I am too good an actor to be a Bollywood leading lady, curly hair and vulnerable voice made it worse, I signed Queen thinking this will never release, signed it for money with that money I went to film school in New York." In Newyork I studied screenwriting, directed a small film in California at the age of 24 which gave me a breakthrough in Hollywood, after seeing my work a big agency hired me as a director, I buried all my acting ambitions, did not have the courage to return to India (cont) — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) March 7, 2021 She also mentioned how her journey started in New York where she studied screenwriting and also filmed a small movie. This gave her a breakthrough in Hollywood.

While some people spoke in her favour, others bashed her for 'seeking attention'.

  24. While a few celebrities have already established their position as a hypebeast, there are some TV actors as well who joined the bandwagon, flaunting their zany collection of sneakers. We are talking about Maniesh Paul here, who hasn't just shown his talent as a TV host but has also done a brilliant job on the fashion front. He is known to have the quirkiest collection of sneakers and his choices are such that he can easily give B-towners a run for their money. © Viral Bhayani Maniesh knows his pairs well and every time he makes an appearance, most of us are left green with envy just looking at his collection. From wearing two different sneakers at the same time to sporting super colourful shoes, there's nothing that Maniesh hasn't aced. © Viral Bhayani To prove the same, he was spotted yet again, in an insane pair of shoes. His outfit looked subtle but the sneakers, no doubt, are a winner here. Take a look: © Nike Maniesh is seen wearing Zoom LeBron 3 QS sneakers. The pair was released back in 2006 and now, it brings royalty to the street through the signature line, with little reiterations. The style has Nike Zoom Air cushioning, premium leather details and a throwback lion logo, that makes the pair look edgy. © Nike Now, coming to the rest of the details of his outfit, every piece here screams fashion.

The Price: © Viral Bhayani As far as the cost of the sneakers is concerned, the pair might look like an expensive deal but these cost Rs 14,995 including taxes and duties, on Nike's official website.

His sense of style is no doubt distinct and the outfit here is easy to pull off. The contemporary elements, made the overall look stand out. Keep it up, Maniesh. View the full article
  25. It’s almost undeniable that cinema has an impact on our daily lives and how we perceive certain things. And there are obviously a few aspects of cinema that are extremely fancy and somewhat unrealistic, especially how they depict work life.Just imagine, if you had the chance to live the life of Ranbir Kapoor from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, would you ever turn down that opportunity? In fact, we are so influenced by Cinema and these jobs in particular, that somewhere we feel our work lives are kinda miserable. That’s the kind of impact Bollywood has on us. Nonetheless, here are five such jobs that gave us major FOMO. 1. Radio Jockey If you have seen Vidya Balan in Lage Raho Munna Bhai, you must have felt how cool the profession is and it won't be a stretch to assume some of us would have even wanted to pursue a career as one. 2. Diving Instructor It might not have been on your list of likely professions, but Katrina Kaif’s portrayal of a diving instructor in Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara might have changed it. If you’re someone who loves water, it can be your dream profession and will save you from sitting long hours at your desk job in the office. 3. Photographer/ Travel Journalist After seeing Ranbir Kapoor’s portrayal of these professions in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Wake Up Sid, you must have thought about pursuing these as serious career options. Thanks to Bunny, quite a few of us were actually enlightened that one can pursue travel journalism as a career option. 4. Chef From the times of Rajesh Khanna’s Bawarchi, Bollywood has been trying to experiment with the idea of men working in the kitchen. Saif Ali Khan, in films like Salaam Namaste and Chef made it look like a cakewalk. Thank you Saif for rubbing our dull desk jobs right in our faces. 5. Hairstylist Thanks to Bollywood, the thoughts of people who stereotyped the profession of a hairstylist as the old school naayi have completely changed. Whether it’s Kajol in My Name Is Khan to the super-stylish Kareena Kapoor Khan in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, Bollywood has helped us understand that there’s more to this profession than just having scissors in your hand.
