10 Lesser-Known Facts About ‘Dil Chahta’ Hai That Even True Fans Might Not Know

It was the year 2001, social media, ‘influenza’ culture, travel and fashion bloggers were terms we didn’t even know and life was simpler. An iconic movie, which was way ahead of its time, which led a full revolution of how we perceived men’s fashion (courtesy the jazzy cuts and the ‘goatee’) and established how every group of friends just wanted to end up in Goa, casually released and changed the way we saw life. I am talking about Dil Chahta Hai, a film which was not just a script but an emotion which has continued to stay with us even after 20 years of its release. Here are some lesser-known facts about this epic movie which might surprise you if you’re a true fan:
1. The original choice of the lead cast was in fact Hrithik Roshan, Abhishek Bachchan and Akshaye Khanna. When Hrithik and AB didn’t sign up for this wonderful ride, Farhan Akhtar had to legit wait for over 10 months before he could meet Aamir Khan and convince him for this project. Also, Akshaye had originally signed up for playing Akash’s character but things changed after Aamir came on board. Aren’t we all GLAD this happened? Can't imagine anyone who could flawlessly play the role of this pensive painter. © Instagram 2. You know about writer's block? Similarly, the wonderful music maestros of this album, Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy were trying to come up with the title song. The three of them, along with Farrhan, went to Lonavla for 4 days to just relax and rattle their minds.  When they came back, the entire soundtrack of the movie was written and planned. We all witnessed the magic that ensued later. 
3. Talking about the title track in particular, the tune of ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ came to Shankar Mahadevan’s mind when the musical genius was just brushing his teeth one morning. Yeah it was THAT smooth! Also, the words ‘chamkeele din’ were initially not finalised because Farhan thought it sounded like a jingle for a detergent. Little did he know that this music and this movie would go on to give us so many ‘chamkeele din’. 4. The beautiful scene where Sid is explaining Deepa about how she needs to let go of Akash and the reference of holding sand in our hands is actually a literal ode to Edgar Allen Poe’s poem A Dream Within A Dream. 5. I remember how I was fascinated with the beauty of Australia and I am pretty sure, this movie became a big reason why so many of us eventually visited the country. But the original script had Akash and Shalini falling in love with each other in New York. Since it was Winter over there, the script shifted the aesthetic background to Australia. 6. Farhan and Preity first met when she landed in Mumbai for her audition for Kya Kehna. It was at that time that he told her that whenever he would make a film, she would be a part of it. 7. In case you are wondering how the storyline came into place, then not many people know that it was inspired by Farhan’s trip to Vegas with his friends and a loose script which was handed to him by his friend. Everything got stitched together and DCH happened.  8. The visualisations of every song in the movie are remarkable. My personal favourite was the way Wo Ladki Hai Kahan was shot. It was very different and what a refreshing change. While the choreography genius behind this was Farah Khan, the idea of having a film in a film was originally Arjun Bhasin’s idea, who was the costume designer.  9. For a movie which was so progressive in that period, it wont come as a surprise to you if I tell you that the original script and dialogues were in fact written in English.  10. After the huge success of this movie, Farhan had suggested that he would like to make a sequel to this iconic movie with an all-female cast. Well, it's 20 years and counting, but on the other hand, some things can never be remade, right?

‘Indiranagar Ka Gunda Hun Main’ Rahul Dravid’s New Avatar Has Left Virat Kohli Speechless

When we talk about patience, stability, and calmness on the cricket pitch, especially during a gruelling five-day Test cricket match, the first person that comes to mind, arguably has to be Rahul Dravid.
Over the years, he has become the primary example of how a ‘gentleman of the game should be’. He is classy, down to earth and there are only a handful of times when we’ve seen a frown on his forehead, regardless of how much stress the team must be under. Having said that, a new video online has been making people question their entire belief system and having them pinch their arms simply because of the kind of things ‘The Wall’ can be seen doing in it. Even the great Virat Kohli , who is known for his theatrics and hotheadedness on the field, is left surprised and absolutely speechless: Never seen this side of Rahul bhai 🤯🤣 pic.twitter.com/4W93p0Gk7m — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) April 9, 2021 “Never seen this side of Rahul bhai,” Kohli wrote from his official Twitter account. In the video advertising a credit card payment application, Dravid can be seen having anger-management issues while being stuck in heavy traffic. Among many, many things that Dravid can be seen doing in the video, the highlights include:  Throwing a cup of coffee at the window of an old lady’s car; Challenging a random stranger to “come man”; Smashing the outside rearview mirrors of the adjacent car with his favourite weapon - a cricket bat (while laughing maniacally); Sliding out of his car’s sunroof and yelling “Indiranagar ka gunda hun main”; And trying to smash the sh*t out of his own car's steering wheel.  Dravid fans were as entertained as Kohli himself and here’s how some of them reacted to the video: Seen him angry just once in my life that's throwing his hat after Rajasthan Royals loosing against Mumbai in 14.4 overs...
But this is different ️ pic.twitter.com/BQchRSYZPR — Guru (@okguru123) April 9, 2021*teacher steps out*

Back when he used to play for the Indian cricket team, he used to be a brand ambassador for multiple brands, most of whom capitalised on Dravid’s cool and composed nature and created fascinating advertisements around it. You can check out a few of them, here.

Kejriwal, Uddhav Thackeray During PM Modi's COVID Address Is Basically Every Backbencher Ever

There is a reason why many of us still remain petrified at the thought of stepping up on the stage and speaking directly to a bunch of people sitting in the audience. 
You can be speaking on important matters at hand like woman empowerment, gender equality, global warming, or saving dolphins, however, there is still a high chance of there being one or two individuals in the audience who will stop at nothing to make things hard.  Well, just to reassure you that you are not alone, something of a similar nature happened with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a recent event.  Amid the recent surge in Coronavirus cases across India, PM Modi on Thursday (April 08) held a virtual meeting with the chief ministers of all states in order to address the immediate situation at hand.  © Twitter Many viewers watching the reactions of the duo labeled their antics to be similar to that of backbenchers sitting in a boring school or college lecture and we don’t blame them either. 
Here are some of the reactions and memes posted by viewers on microblogging website Twitter: Teacher : Everyone Pay Attention.

The Rock As POTUS? Nearly Half Of Americans Want To See Him Run For President In 2024

In a recent survey conducted by Piplsay, an American think tank and polling firm, people from all over the political spectrum have agreed on one thing - a vast majority want Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to run for president in 2024. © Instagram/therockfans97 It seems that given Dwayne’s history with the idea, it might be time for him to take one step closer to this dream. © Instagram/therockfans97 Back in 2017, Dwayne had confirmed in an interview that he would indeed like to run for the highest office in the United States of America, after seeing that Donal Trump won quite emphatically. He couched his aspirations in the term “a real possibility if that’s what the people wanted.” © Instagram/therockfans97 If indeed that turns out to be true, it will be the second time that the Americans will have elected a celebrity to the White House. © AFP People had speculated that Dwayne would contest the 2020 election against Trump, after he and Tom Hanks performed a bit for a show, announcing their “campaign.” However, he shut all of those speculations down later, saying that he wasn’t ready - yet. © AFP There are speculations that indeed if he files his nomination, a showdown between Kanye West and Dwayne Johnson, at least in the initial stages cannot be ruled out.
Twitter, meanwhile, upon finding this out, had some seriously strong opinions. Probably the same half that thought Trump would be a good president — MP (@matthew_pine1 April 9, 2021Naw....we've already had a celebrity prez. Didn't work out well at all. — Barb Dignan (@barbdignan April 9, 2021 We’re on team Terry… Fans of B99 unite! He'd make a great president! But I betcha he'd lose in a landslide to Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho. pic.twitter.com/BKFLsAVeH9 — Kevin Glennon (@kevinglennon April 9, 2021 That’s gotta burn. He’d be a better republican candidate than many who hold the offices now. — Andrew || Burning Forest (@Burning_Forest April 9, 2021 Now that’s one heck of a combo, we must say. And Vince McMahon will be his running mate, right? pic.twitter.com/6bbvJ89hNo — Al B (@Scene_By_ALB April 9, 2021 Ah...American elections are just fun to watch. Like a really bad comedy movie... Stone Cold for opposing candidate on the right... pic.twitter.com/QTZGomhZRk — Johnny_Cage (@4aces10 April 9, 2021Imagine the presidential election being decided by a hell in a cell match. Wouldn’t that be a spectacle worth watching? In all seriousness though, what do you think about celebrities joining politics, and aiming for the highest offices in their respective countries? We have some experience in this regard, don’t we?

Ranveer Singh's Strange Pair Of 'High Mist' Sneakers Remind Us Of Cement Blocks

It seems like Ranveer Singh is pulling all the stops when it comes to functional outfits. Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit us in the year 2020, things have been going back in forth in terms of adjusting to the 'new normal'. However, one thing that remained constant amid this surge is most people's inclination towards a functional, season-less, and comfortable wardrobe. In a pre-pandemic world, Ranveer Singh would leave no stone unturned in exploring all kinds of trends when it came to styling his outfits, from exploring androgynous silhouettes to embracing the street aesthetic, he's done it all. However, in the last year, he too has toned down his outfits and made them more relatable. We believe the primary reason for this sudden shift in his personal style can be attributed to the multiple rounds of lockdowns and spending more time at home than outside. Recently, Ranveer Singh was seen outside the dubbing studio post work in Mumbai. His outfit was in line with his all-new, toned-down aesthetic. Take a look at what he wore here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani On a closer look, it was confirmed that he was wearing the Yeezy 500 High Mist Slate sneakers. They are a recent launch and were dropped in February 2021 and were sold out instantly. They were priced at 220 Dollars which comes down to Rs. 16,000 approximately.
The sneaker silhouette features a moulded upper which is composed of cow suede, premium leather and elastane, with a padded collar. It also has a rubber wrap along with the midsole of the foot which provides additional support. Take a look at the sneaker silhouette here: © adidas

Poster of Ekta Kapoor's ‘His Story’ Called Out For Plagiarism & The Similarities Are Blatant

Recently, the first poster of Ekta Kapoor’s new upcoming series His Story was unveiled. And soon after the first poster was released, its similarities to a preexisting poster from a 2015 film LOEV were spotted by the films director. Also, unsurprisingly then, as it turns out, both the projects are about same-sex relationships. Art director and film strategist Jahan Bakshi of the film LOEV took to Twitter and wrote, "Bro @altbalaji are you okay? I mean if you need someone to design posters I can help you, I promise it doesn't cost that much." He added, "This poster for LOEV was designed by @TalkPigeonCo and illustrated by Rohan Pore. We spent months on it. Investing solid time/money on a poster for an indie film is difficult. And yet, a studio that surely has the resources to commission original designs opts to steal it. Sad." Checkout the post here- This poster for LOEV was designed by @TalkPigeonCo and illustrated by Rohan Pore. We spent months on it. Investing solid time/money on a poster for an indie film is difficult. And yet, a studio which surely has the resources to commission original designs opts to steal it. Sad. pic.twitter.com/XYzGcFBmdZ — JSB (@jahanbakshi) April 9, 2021 Earlier, he had also found out similarities between the posters of AltBalaji’s other series The Married Woman, and the films Ammonite, which starred Kate Winslet, and Ingmar Bergman's Persona.  He wrote, "WHY IS THIS INDUSTRY LIKE THIS?" LOEV director Sudhanshu Saria wrote on Twitter. "Woke up to find that our painstakingly illustrated, original poster for @loevfilm has just been blatantly ripped off by the geniuses at @altbalaji @ZEE5Premium for their show #HisStoryy."  Now these are both fairly generic designs, but when *both" the posters of a show resemble existing designs - then it's pretty clear the designers were only interested in replicating 'references'... pic.twitter.com/Fxk1iqy6lQ — JSB (@jahanbakshi) March 2, 2021  He added, "Thirteen months of back and forth and so many drafts by the amazing minds at @TalkPigeonCo with oversight by @jahanbakshi and amazingly illustrated by artist @rohanpore just ripped off without any decency. Am glad they liked our poster; am glad they're telling a queer story but why do this? What is the need? We made our poster with no funds to speak of. Why have massive machinery like @altbalaji @ZEE5India if you can't even come up with your own poster? Alerting my fellow artists @satyadeepmisra @MrinalDutt02 @Suparn -- if you didn't know, now you do. @ektarkapoor @TweetBaljit @ThisIsHowWeDing Let's all do better."  Jahan Bakshi also shared his opinion on the matter. He said, "In Hollywood, they actually have awards for outstanding poster art and film campaigns. Admittedly, the bar is set much lower in our country, especially in mainstream Bollywood. Back in the days of the hand-painted posters, we produced some beautiful poster art, but now in the digital era—while we have had some good posters cropping up sporadically, it’s actually tough to recall a single flat-out stunner.”  What do you think?

When Malaika Arora Had To Deal With Trolls That Called Her ‘Buddhi’ For Dating Younger Arjun Kapoor

Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora have been dating each other and it's no secret anymore. They have very much admitted to being in a relationship and it's out in the open for the people to see. The two often share pictures on Instagram too. When they made it official, it was Malaika who had to deal with trolls and people who called her desperate. People even slammed her for dating someone who was so much younger than her. Opening up about the age difference between Arjun and her, Malaika had told HT Brunch in an earlier interview, "The age difference doesn’t really pop up when you are in a relationship. It is about two minds and hearts connecting. Unfortunately, we live in a society that refuses to progress with time. An older man romancing a younger girl is hailed everywhere, but when the woman is older, she's called 'desperate' and a 'buddhi'. For people who think like this, I have just one line: Take a flying f***." View this post on InstagramShe was also asked about how his son Arhaan reacted to her dating Arjun. On this, she said, “I believe the best way to approach any situation is with honesty. It's important to tell your near and dear ones what's happening in your life and then give them time and space to understand and process things. We have had that conversation and I am so glad that everyone is in a much happier and more honest space today." View this post on InstagramIt’s sad that Malaika had to face the brunt of narrow-minded trolls. Calling her ‘buddhi’ and ‘desperate’ is downright demeaning. Even Priyanka Chopra Jonas was questioned when she chose to spend her life with Nick Jonas.  Isn’t it unfair to target women when you have examples of male celebs marrying younger women like Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan? We also have Shahid Kapoor’s example who married a much younger Mira Rajput. What do you have to say about this? Let us know in the comments section below.

Adarsh Gourav Calls His Middle-Class Upbringing An Advantage & He Has A Valid Point

Those who have seen Adarsh Gourav in Priyanka Chopra and Rajkummar Rao’s The White Tiger would agree with the fact he outshone both the actors with his rock-solid performance. The actor was even nominated in the Best Actor category for The White Tiger for BAFTA 2021. People appreciated his craft and wanted to know all about the actor who has managed to sweep all of us with his acting prowess. View this post on Instagram He started his career in 2010 with My Name Is Khan and was born and brought up in Jamshedpur. In an interview with IANS, he told how it was an advantage to be brought up in Jamshedpur. He said, "I think the fact that you do not get everything in life that you want, and how to deal with it (is an advantage). If I give a small example, at the age of nine, if I wanted a pair of Nike shoes, I wouldn't get that because either there was no showroom of Nike back then or my father thought it was an unnecessary expense. It wouldn't have been the same with a boy from a wealthy family. Not that I was upset or anything but we always knew what we could afford and what we couldn't. Having said that since my parents had a huge passion for travelling, we would go on a family vacation every year.” He also reflected on his childhood, on how he never went abroad for vacations, “We did not go abroad for those vacations but in India, as a child, I have travelled everywhere, and I know how beautiful my country is. We went to Himachal Pradesh, we went to Goa and also different places in South India. I felt the diversity, and whenever we travelled by train, we would chat with fellow passengers and the journeys were filled with memory." View this post on Instagram He also added that it was his middle-class upbringing that made him more compassionate and empathetic towards others. "I know the advantage of being middle-class. My spectrum towards life is wider because I have interacted with people from different walks of life. My compassion and empathy towards other people and their condition is more. I value my privilege of having good food, going to a good school, living in a good house and everything that my parents have given me. Honestly, I do not want to change those values,” added the actor. View this post on Instagram We hope to see more of the actor in the years to come and wish he gets to make it bigger in the industry.

Man Married To 2 Sex Dolls Says His Partners Have Fallen In Love & We Wonder What He's Smoking

This pandemic and the ensuing lockdowns that the world has had to go through, has been tough on people. Well, it turns out, it has been tougher on a certain few people, more than it has been on others. © Instagram/yurii_tolochko A bodybuilder from Kazakhstan, who goes by the name of Yuri Tolochko, had married a sex doll last year. Then, he apparently cheated on his “wife” with another sex doll, while the first wall was getting repaired. Use your imagination for what, exactly was the doll getting repaired for. © Instagram/yurii_tolochko Then, he divorced his plastic “wife” and married the second sex doll, cheats on the second doll, with a third doll, and starts living-in with the third doll as well. Oh, and if all this wasn’t confusing enough, the second doll, has the body shape of a chicken. 
View this post on Instagram Now, Yuri says that both the dolls, named Luna & Lola (of course, why not are happy together, and actually have fallen in love with each other. © Instagram/yurii_tolochko Speaking about Lola, the chicken bodied one, Yuri said - "Lola has a woman's head, a chicken's body, the navel has depth and can be used as a v****a and a penis inserted into it."
View this post on Instagram Why, is one of his fantasies shaped like a chicken? Well, again, use your fantasies, but do keep in mind that in case you can’t look at a chicken again after reading this story, do not blame us. If you’re feeling down, and are looking for some great ‘pick-me-up’ content that is laughable and hilariously stupid, you better check out Yuri’s Instagram account, and the kind of posts and captions that he puts up, describing his love for his two wives, in some great detail. © Instagram/yurii_tolochko Said Yuri in an Instagram post, “Anyway, logistics aside, Yuri wrote: "So me and Luna get along great. Lola also fell in love with Luna. I give each of them a separate time, but the three of us together are also having fun.”
One can’t help but wonder, how exactly a threesome between the three of them would work out. Well, to each, his own. People on Twitter were obviously not going to let this opportunity pass, and we did see some really funny comments on it. Nothing wrong with body hair man, come on... Now I can go about my day safe in the knowledge I've read this news, I feel better.

Suniel Shetty Stepped Out In A Pair Of Pants With Giant Pockets & DIY Mask

Suniel Shetty's style choices are just getting wilder as he gets older. At 59, we see Suniel wearing some of the best outfits out there. In fact, over the years, he's learnt the art of sprucing things up and serving us some rad street style looks. From his cazh airport looks to red carpet 'fits, he's always been on top of his style game. Moreover, in addition to his impeccable acting skills, he has also developed a signature beard style. Suniel's iconic salt and pepper hair and beard style, in recent years, has become a defining trend in Bollywood. In fact, from time to time, he keeps tweaking it a bit and presenting it with different variations of the same style.  Recently, he was seen on the streets. Take a look at what he wore here: View this post on Instagram Suniel was seen wearing a dull grey T-shirt with a pair of dark grey cargo pants with huge pockets. To complete the look he wore a pair of solid white shoes and a DIY scarf mask. Back when Suniel first made his debut in the industry, he wore vibrant colours and baggy silhouettes. Today, he sticks to neutral tones that complement his salt and pepper beard. Talking about the pair of pants that Suniel wore, we've noticed that it has become an ongoing trend in Bollywood to ditch a pair of jeans for pairs that are far more comfortable and cargo pants definitely checks all the boxes. The pockets are convenient for storing in a bunch of things especially when you don't want to carry a bag with you. It's been a year since we've been dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, with an upcoming surge things are shutting down once again which might mean that we won't be seeing Suniel for a while. But this also means, that in that interim, he might try a new beard style and we might see a new version of him when we finally see him again.

Apple To Pay More Than Rs 25 Cr In Chile For Slowing Down iPhones And Forcing Users To Upgrade

Apple will be paying $3.4 million to settle a lawsuit in Chile that accused the company of throttling some of its products to force consumers to upgrade. Over 1.5 lakh iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus and SE owners sued Apple in Chile which the company has been battling since 2017. Registered participants in Chile can get a maximum of $50 in compensation after the lawsuit was settled.  © Unsplash Apple released the iOS 10.2.1 update in 2017 with a feature that throttled the performance of older iPhones. The throttling occurred to prevent device shutdown at peak usage times due to degraded batteries. Apple did not clarify in the update that mitigating these shutdowns would require scaling down the performance of older iPhones. This upset many iPhone users which resulted in a series of lawsuits that are currently still active.  © Unsplash Since then, Apple has released updates that introduced measures to improve battery life and are aimed at making iPhones last longer even when battery health is at a decline. Apple also offered a battery replacement program all over the world for iPhones that have degraded batteries. Apple wanted to offer affordable battery upgrades/replacement for users who weren’t necessarily looking to buy a new iPhone anytime soon. 
This is not the first time Apple is facing lawsuits for throttling the performance of older iPhones. Apple faced similar lawsuits in other countries such as Spain, Italy, Portugal, Belgium and the United States. Apple settled the lawsuit in the United States and shelled out between $310 and $500 million. It was determined that Apple had concealed this problem that forced users to buy a new iPhone altogether. Apple denied these claims but agreed to settle outside of court.  © Unsplash Other companies such as Samsung have taken a dig at Apple previously with an ad that showed an iPhone user recommending her mom to upgrade to a newer model of the iPhone as it started to slow down.

‘Naagin’ Actress Shares Powerful Note In Response To Troll Who Asked Her Bra Size On Live Session

Though we use social media to connect with celebrities and friends, things can often get tricky as trolls often post comments that confuse us and at times, shock us deeply. Recently, something very similar happened with TV actress Sayantani Ghosh who hosted an Instagram live session with her fans and was asked about her bra size from one of the users. Later, recalling the incident Ghost shared a befitting note on body shaming. View this post on Instagram She wrote, "Yesterday in one of my interactive sessions someone asked me my bra size! Though I gave the person a befitting reply (which btw a lot of you appreciated) still I felt there is so much more I want to talk about.. Any form of BODY SHAMING is BAD!! Period.”  She said, “But particularly, I struggle to wrap my head around the fact that what is this fascination towards female BREASTS?? As to what size it is?? A cup, B, C or D, etc ?? And it's not only the boys, even us girls have this sort of a conditioning!"  She expressed how people are just fascinated towards a female’s body parts, especially breasts and wrote, “There are few parts to such mental conditioning. 1: Why is it so difficult to accept that it's just another body part?? I know it has meaning when it comes to a nursing mother or certain purposes of passion, but in the end isn't it another body part ??? What we don't realise is that such perspectives or hype over the female breast, throw few of us women, in fact most women get into a very f**ked up head space!"  View this post on Instagram She also wrote about how in today’s time women need to practice self-love. She added, “Where is the concept of Self- acceptance and Self-love ?? Few of us who are well endowed start feeling conscious about it, and start hoping that ‘I wish I was flat or small chested’ and few of us feel the need for implants!!! Remember those times when you went to buy a nice pair of dress and the only reason you didn't buy it because either your breasts looked too small or big in it ?? It's like we are never good enough !! We are so uncomfortable even talking about it!!"  View this post on Instagram She also said, “IT'S TIME TO STOP The next part of my thoughts is, who gives such rights to men?? Why do men feel that you are entitled to look at a woman this way or talk to her this way?? May be it's us ..yes girls its us for tolerating this sh*t and not speaking up! Often we shy away from facing these men due to a feeling of shame, or avoiding such points so that we don't create a scene and the list of reasons can go on… I too have kept quiet so many times feeling uncomfortable when I saw a man staring at my breasts!!" She questioned men about how they would feel if the tables turned. Kudos to the actress for tackling the troll head on and exposing deep-rooted misogyny and sexism in the society. What do you think?

5 Flattering Ways To Style A Cuban Collar Shirt Like A Dapper Dude

What Dian Von Furstenberg’s iconic wrap dress is to women, is a Cuban collar shirt to men. 
What we are establishing is it’s flattering to most body types, comes in the quirkiest of prints, and much like the DVF dress when Cuban collar shirts made a comeback, it found its loyal takers. Whether you wear this retro button-down to a tropical vacation with a pair of shorts, or under your earthy toned suit to a summer wedding memo, a Cuban collar shirt never disappoints.  Here’s your guide to picking the right Cuban collar shirt for different settings and 5 sure-fire ways to style it. 1. With Shorts For A Nautical FeelEmbrace the sunny days and pair your Cuban collar shirt with shorts. Pick a piece with broad stripes to keep up with a nautical vibe. Continue the holiday dressing theme with sandals or flats to cool-off in style.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1383__ 2. With Relaxed Suits For Summer Weddings Give a fresh spin to your traditional wedding suits by adding a layer of cuban collar shirt. Pick a suit in earthy or beige tone and style it with a pastel Cuban collar shirt underneath. Throw on a pair of mules and keep the suit jacket unbuttoned to vibe with a relaxed summer setting. __ECOMPRODUCT__1384__ 3. With Jeans For A Casual Summer LookA white T-shirt, a pair of regular fit denims and a cool pair of sneakers is what makes for a perfect everyday summer look.  Swap your white T-shirt with this white Cuban collar shirt with postman pockets to elevate your summer style.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1385__ 4. With T-shirt For A More Dressy Look Take a cue from the vintage lookbook by styling the Cuban collar shirt with a T-shirt, a style once popular in the ’50s. Something light and earthy looks best with bright colors.  Add a pop of colour to your summer wardrobe with this red Cuban collar shirt with palm print. To make the look more dressy, style it with a white T-shirt inside and finish the look with white chinos and espadrilles. __ECOMPRODUCT__1386__ 5. With Trousers For A Smart-Casual Dress Code When we say smart-casual, we think more well-fitted, sharp pieces that are less casual but borderline formal — exactly like what Saif is wearing.  Pick a well-fitted Cuban collar shirt in dark blue, team it with a pair of charcoal gray trousers, and add a pair of black oxford shoes to whip out a perfect smart-casual look. Don’t forget to tuck the shirt into your pants. __ECOMPRODUCT__1387__ The BottomlineWith a statement collar, short sleeves and a flattering fit, Cuban collar shirts are a great way to amp up your summer look. Build your look around the ones in bold prints or stick to a solid color, depending on your mood. Experiment with accessories like a pendant or chain since a Cuban collar is designed to have a plunging neckline. Finish up with a slick pair of chinos or shorts and sunglasses to rock a quintessential Cuban collar look.  Explore More

Female EU President Not Being Offered Chair In Meeting With Turkish President Reeks Of Sexism

At a time when the United States has seen history unfold with Kamala Harris becoming the first woman Vice President, and with work being underway to deal with issues like the gender pay gap and gender equality, there happen to be still some incidents that send us right back to the caveman era. 
The most recent example of this was when European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen had traveled to Turkey on Wednesday (April 08) along with European Council President Charles Michel to meet Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan. Despite there being three leaders present during the meeting, there were only two chairs kept in the room, and to von der Leyen's surprise, she wasn't offered a single one despite being the only woman in the talks.  Yikes. EU Commission Prez Ursula von der Leyen gets no chair in meeting with #Turkey’s Erdogan.

As EU Council chief Charles Michel is ushered in, seated next to Erdogan, the senior woman official looks around, says “Erm”, before ending up on sofa:
pic.twitter.com/LO9yrqGhVb — Joyce Karam (@Joyce_Karam) April 7, 2021  Von der Leyen, who is the first female lead of the EU executive, was taken aback and could only gesture in disbelief when Michel took the only remaining center-stage seat alongside Erdogan.  Footage of the meeting showed Von der Leyen uttering a surprised sigh after seeing the awkward game of musical chairs unfold right before her, before being relegated to the sofa adjacent to the chairs.  Yikes. EU Commission Prez Ursula von der Leyen gets no chair in meeting with #Turkey’s Erdogan.

As EU Council chief Charles Michel is ushered in, seated next to Erdogan, the senior woman official looks around, says “Erm”, before ending up on sofa:
pic.twitter.com/LO9yrqGhVb — Joyce Karam (@Joyce_Karam) April 7, 2021  Following the meeting, however, the EU executive arm's spokesman, Eric Mamer, released a statement saying, "The president of the Commission was clearly surprised."  "The president (von der Leyen) should have been seated in exactly the same manner as the president of the European Council and the Turkish president." There was no immediate response to the request for comment from the Turkish government.  However, as per reports, a member of the European Parliament, Sophie in't Veld, asked why Michel had not reacted to the distasteful incident.  Later, on the same day, Michel in a Facebook post admitted that the incident was "regrettable" and caused by "Turkish authorities’ strict interpretation of protocol rules". `The 45-year-old Belgian leader said he decided against a public confrontation. As per an EU official, who declined to be named, any public confrontation would have resulted in provoking a "protocol and political incident." "Turkey meant no disrespect. It extended a very courteous welcome to both presidents and strictly adhered to international protocol." the official said.  However, in the past when Turkish leaders had visited Brussels, three chairs had been provided for the meeting with the heads of the Commission and European Council. In the past, three chairs were provided when the Turkish leader visited Brussels for talks with heads of the Commission and the European Council. According to EU spokesman, von der Leyen still decided not to make "an issue out of it" and in the conversation brought up women's rights and the Istanbul Convention on violence against women, from which Turkey withdrew in March. Good first meeting with President @RTErdogan. Turkey has shown interest in re-engaging with the EU in a constructive way.

We are ready to work on a new momentum in our relationship ahead of the June #EUCO. https://t.co/OKK1gdo3TC — Ursula von der Leyen (@vonderleyen) April 6, 2021 While the 62-year-old Brussels-born German leader chose to take the high road, viewers reading about the incident could not choose to let the incident slide down just like that. Here are some of their reactions on the microblogging website Twitter: Truly shocking, Von Der Leyen is possibly one of the most important politicians in the world today. Turkey should hang it's head in shame — Andy_tradesmantrucker (@Andytrdmntrucka) April 7, 2021Are you kidding me????!!! Disgusting!! She looks as angry as I feel!!! Do better, people! — One Voice (@Resist4Dem) April 8, 2021Charles Michel fault for sitting down when he should have gestured to her. — ملکMalik (@Malik__73) April 7, 2021Why are men so jealous of smart women?

I admire their physical strength.

But they cringe at our intelligence. — Terra Cotta (@TerraCo90720232) April 7, 2021Charles Michel should be standing up for Gender Equality and European Values and refusing to sit down until both he and Ursula von der Leyen were given chairs. Sexist! — Smartipants (@smartindc) April 7, 2021Fact: that's not his culture apparently. However much I find it distasteful, I will not project my values onto him. However, the EU man should have sat with the lady on the couch in a united front. More mad at him. — Tippypivrad (@tippypivrad) April 7, 2021The senior woman official should have walked out! — Atiya Izhar (@AtiyaIzhar4) April 7, 2021

7 Ways To Include Colours Of The Year 2021 In Your Summer Wardrobe

Considering the collective sentiment of people for the year 2021 – optimism and strength – colour authority Pantone announced Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, a brighter shade of yellow, as the colours of the Year 2021 in December last year. Symbolizing warmth and resilience, these two independent yet complementary colours prove to be a winning combo when incorporated into your wardrobe, almost creating a magic similar to that of sunlight dancing on the gray pebbles on a beach. Tempted to work these colours? Here are 7 staples to buy to build your summer wardrobe around the Pantone colours of the year 2021. 1. Gray Sweats For A Laid-Back Style If you are still reeling in the 2020 mood of lounging all-day-long in your sweatpants, it’s okay, just throw on a slogan T-shirt on your gray sweats to work that laid-back summer style. __ECOMPRODUCT__1376__ 2. Tank T-shirts Making Summer Bearable Nothing spells comfort in summer better than a tank T-shirt with deep armhole cut. Invest in this summer staple in a shade of yellow to brave through the sweltering heat with ease and oodles of swag.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1377__ 3. Yellow Tinted Sunglasses Talk about summer essentials and chances are sunglasses may come second in your checklist preceded by a sunscreen with a hat being the next item on the list.  Let’s check our summer essential list the Pantone way. Opt for a tinted pair of sunglasses in yellow and team it with a gray bucket hat to be summer ready. __ECOMPRODUCT__1378__ 4. Cap With A Tie-Dye TwistOr if bucket hat isn’t your thing, bank on a reliable baseball cap. If you haven’t been smitten by the tie-dye trend yet, opt for something like this yellow-gray tie-dye number to fall in love with the summer trend. __ECOMPRODUCT__1379__ 5. Fanny Packs FTWHigh on fashion and functionality fanny packs have gained a reputation of being one of the most versatile and stylish accessories for men.

Effortless Espadrilles Give your sneakers a break and kick Lana’s Summertime Sadness away with a pair of yellow or gray espadrilles.  While Espadrilles in classic gray can go with your office formals or for party wear numbers, a pair in these ultimate summer slip-ons in yellow would add a pop of colour to your everyday summer look. __ECOMPRODUCT__1382__ The BottomlineMen have banked on the dependability of gray since ages to build a solid look, and it’s about time that they add a dash vivacious yellow to their summer wardrobe.

There’s Now A Tiny Washing Machine To Clean Wax On Earbuds So That You Don’t Feel Embarrassed

There’s now a tiny washing machine available for people who get embarrassed taking out earbuds out of ears in public because it might be infested with wax. If, for some reason, you don’t like to clean the wax off of earbuds, there’s now a product for you. It’s practically a mini washing machine that can sit on your desk and clean your earbuds. It's called the Cardlax EarBuds Washer and is now up for crowd-funding on Kickstarter right now.  © Kickstarter Cardalax The earbuds washing machine works very similarly to a traditional washing machine where you open the lid and see a tiny brush that spins. The brush is used to clean any debris and wax on your earbuds that can be found in the deeper crevices of the earbuds. Once the pre-wash is done, the earbuds then go into a cleaning drum that has a spinning core. The tiny machine also has lightweight foam inside which is soaked with an anti-bacterial cleaning solution. Once you close the lid and start the process, the core spins and rub the earbuds against the walls of the drum. In the process, the wax on the earbuds gets cleaned and should look brand new. 
The Cardalax is compatible with a range of earbuds such as the AirPods, AirPods Pro and TWS earbuds from companies like Bose, Samsung, Jaybird, Jabra, ECHO, Soundcord, Aukey, Pamu, Tribit, Tozo, Mpow, Kwrdene, Superx, Enacfire and other major brands.  © Kickstarter Cardal Once you are done cleaning your earbuds, the inner part of the machine can be removed and cleaned by rinsing it with water. You might be a bit apprehensive about using Cardalax but the creators reassure that the entire cleaning procedure is quite gentle and does not harm your earbuds. The  Cardalax is available for $33 on Kickstarter at the moment and will start shipping as early as June. There’s a chance that it could be delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, however the Cardlax EarBuds Washer is expected to go into production this month.

Wasim Jaffer Shares A Flamingo’s Pic, Says It Depicts A Player To Watch Out For In 1st IPL Game

With the season of the Indian Premier League upon us once again, Wasim Jaffer, crowned to be the social media king, has also made his return with yet another one of his iconic riddles. This time around, he has kept it simple and has tweeted the image of a pink flamingo standing on one leg, in a shallow end of a beach. Guess my player to watch out for tonight. I'll reveal the player at 6pm, but let's see how many decode it before that #MIvRCB #IPL2021 pic.twitter.com/9MvrF66Yxc — Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) April 9, 2021 “Guess my player to watch out for tonight. I'll reveal the player at 6pm, but let's see how many decode it before that #MIvRCB #IPL2021,” wrote the former Indian batsman. This means that the man Jaffer is talking about, belongs to either Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians or Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore , which narrows down the answer to about 30 people. With the given information in mind, the fans of tournament and T20 franchise cricket got to work and started offering their answers to Jaffer on Twitter. Kyle Jamieson, I guess. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) April 9, 2021 Hardik Pandya?... standing on one foot with one ahead of the other and hitting helicopter shot ..btw bohot dino se apka meme nehi dekhne ko mil raha ab to har roj milega🥳 — Himangshu Sekhar Das🇮🇳 (@Himangshu_2002) April 9, 2021 AB DE VILLIERS "MR. 360 degree"
since, he can equally hit all around the ground and a flamingo can bend in many directions in most unnatural ways — random twiteratti (@Twitersss007) April 9, 2021 Suryakumar Yadav because of his one-legged shot to kick off his international career! — Srinivas Ramamohan (@srini_ramamohan) April 9, 2021 @Swannyg66 pic.twitter.com/BYQhx5Y0Pd — Diptiman Yadav (@DiptimanYadav) April 9, 2021 But then a couple of fans figured out Jaffer’s reference to the ‘Flamingo Block’ that New Zealand pacer Trent Boult had played on Day 5 of the first Test match against Australia at Adelaide way back in 2015 that had the cricketing world raising their eyebrows at the cricketer’s willow-wielding abilities. One of the biggest reasons why Mumbai Indians seem to have a clear advantage over Bangalore is left-arm pace ace Boult and the statistical upper hand southpaw fast-bowlers have against RCB skipper Virat Kohli. In the history of the IPL, Kohli has been dismissed a total of 30 times at the hands of the left-arm pacer and continues to have the worst dot-ball percentage against them, according to Hindustan Times.  Having said that, the Chepauk stadium has not been kind to pacers in recent matches and the first two Tests of the India-England series have enough evidence to prove it. It would therefore make it very interesting to see how Boult uses his expertise to find a way to use the Chennai deck to his advantage in the season opener. As of now, all we need to do is wait until 6PM for Jaffer to give out the answer to the riddle followed by enjoying a couple of hours of non-stop action as the two titans of the game lock horns once again.

5 Clever Hacks To Stop Looking Sweaty In Pictures In 2021

Summer months have never been picture-friendly. If you happen to get a picture clicked while you've stepped out, you'll often find yourself looking sweaty in the picture. This can be attributed to the seasonal perspiration as well as greasy skin, but nothing that can't be fixed. Here's a quick guide to help you deal with these two problems so you can get great pictures even when you step out in the heat. 1.  Switch To A Matte SunscreenSometimes using sunscreens can prove to be counterintuitive. Switch to mattifying sunscreens that make sure your skin doesn't seem oily post-application. You could try the Re'equil Ultra Matte Dry-Touch Sunscreen gel SPF 50. 2. Add An Oil-Control Face WashWe tend to secrete more oil in the summer months, which may make our face look greasy in pictures. Switching to an oil-control facewash tends to remove all the excess oil and also gives your skin a matte look at the same time. You could try something mild that gets the job done flawlessly, like MUD Natural face wash. __ECOMPRODUCT__41__ 3. Switch To Breezy 'FitsStepping out in Summer months can be a tricky situation. No matter what you wear, you will find yourself drenched in sweat in no time. While you can't stop the inevitable perspiration, you can minimise it with clothes that are breezy, so that you can dry up just as quickly. Shirts with minimalist designs made with breathable cotton are perfect for the summer heat.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1374__ 4. Make Sure You Have A 'CTM' Skincare RoutineA standard 'CTM' skincare routine consists of cleansing, toning and moisturising. While we're certain that you have your face wash and moisturisier in place, adding a toner to the routine can be a total game-changer. You could try the Plum Green Tea Alcohol-Free toner. __ECOMPRODUCT__1375__ 5. Always Keep Face Wipes HandyIf you find yourself sweating in the middle of the day, face wipes can really help fix that in a minute. You can keep a bunch handy in your stash

Jaya Bachchan Ruthlessly Pushing A Fan Off Her Rally Coach Is Goldmine For Twitter & Trolls

When you’re in a political rally as the star-campaigner you might want to keep your anger issues to the side, no matter how rowdy things might get. Politics, after all, is all about maintaining one’s image. © BCCL For Jaya Bachchan though it seems that there is a certain limit to how close your fans should be allowed to get to you, and probably rightly so. 
© BCCL While campaigning in Howrah for the ongoing Bengal state elections, Jaya Bachchan pushed a fan off of her rallying coach. The fan, who was perhaps a little too eager to see the senior actress, had just climbed up on to the coach, stood beside the senior actress and tried to take a selfie.
#BengalElection2021: जब हावड़ा में रोड शो के दौरान सेल्फी ले रहे युवक को देखकर एक्ट्रेस और सपा सांसद जया बच्चन हो गईं नाराज#WestBengalElections2021 #JayaBachchan

Content Ratings U/A 13+ pic.twitter.com/vIOS3n0zU2 — Prabhat Khabar (@prabhatkhabar) April 8, 2021 This is not the first time where the senior actress has shown her displeasure towards unruly fans. There have been a number of documented cases in the past, where the actress did not shy away from giving an earful to fans and the paparazzi who were behaving in a rather unruly manner. © Prabhat Khabar This, of course, did not go down too well with Twitterati, who took this incident a little too seriously.
Ye humesha naraz hi rehti hai. Isko aur kuch aata nhi hai, bolegi to bhi naraz, uthegi to naraz, baithegi to naraz aur dekhegi to bhi naraz . Iske to daanto ke bich me battery ka taar rakh kr charging krwana chahiye — complaint.boy (@complaintboy) April 9, 2021 There were a few people who suggested that she should enrol herself in some anger management classes. This gentleman went a step further and asked Amitabh Bachchan to get her enrolled. Namaskar Shri @SrBachchan sahab. By the grace of god you have earned a lot of name and fame and money . Can you enroll your dear wife in some anger management program. Dhanyvad in advance 🏻🏻🏻 — Varun Bahl🇮🇳 (@bahl65) April 8, 2021 Then there were people who trolled her for being a public figure and being “egotistic” & “people-unfriendly.” Such an egotistic and people-unfriendly person. Why is she in public life I wonder. https://t.co/8XJlxHOFxL — Smita Prakash (@smitaprakash) April 8, 2021 This is just below the belt. Funny, but still, below the belt… Ab main smjha ki ye beech mein pillow daal kr kyu sote pic.twitter.com/83NTwdNYY5 — 𝐌𝐫. 𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐖𝐨𝐥𝐟 द्वितीय :): (@mr_loneWolf__) April 8, 2021 Ah, memes from WhatsApp University...

Taking selfies with someone without their consent. She has every right to do that. Just because she is a celeb, doesn't mean she can't say no to people — Tushar Singh (@Dhruv__Chauhan) April 8, 2021 She has said it many times she doesn't like taking pictures, people should leave her lol — Mohabbatein (@sidharth0800) April 8, 2021 Although we do feel sorry for the man, we have to say, that it was rather hilarious, how he was shunted away. Also, do note, that he wasn’t wearing a mask. Not that it really matters in political rallies, I mean who cares, right? Do let us know in the comments below, what do you make of the situation. Do you think her actions were justified, or should celebrities, and more importantly, political leaders just learn to deal with irritant fans in a camera-friendly manner?

5 Reasons Why Abhishek’s 'The Big Bull' Fell Short Of Expectations & Didn’t Hit The Bull’s Eye

Harshad Mehta was often referred to as the 'Big Bull' of Dalal Street or the 'Amitabh Bachchan' of the Indian stock market. It was his involvement in the scam of 1992 that exposed the loopholes in the country's banking system. We saw the story in detail when Pratik Gandhi collaborated with Hansal Mehta for the Scam 1992 web series. Just months later, we were given one more opportunity to see Harshad’s life but this time in the form of Abhishek Bachchan starring as The Big Bull. The film went on air yesterday and I certainly had high expectations because I wanted to see what new the film could bring to the table. One cannot help but compare it with last year’s Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. It’s not that Abhishek didn’t do his part well but there were shortcomings in quite a few departments.  Abhishek Bachchan plays the role of Hemant Shah, a lower-middle-class Gujarati who dreams about making it big and stumbles upon stock market investing as a way to achieve everything he has been desiring for. We have Sohum Shah as Hemant’s younger brother Viren. Ileana D’Cruz plays the role of the journalist who exposes the big scam while Nikita Dutta plays the role of Hemant’s wife in the movie. We also get to see Ram Kapoor in the role of Hemant’s lawyer. If you have seen the movie, you might agree with the fact it did fall short of expectations. And here are five reasons why we feel it didn’t hit the bull’s eye. 1. Characters Lacked Depth and ConvictionAbhishek does show patches of great performance as Hemant and reminded us of his character Dhirubhai Ambani in Mani Ratnam’s Guru but he still couldn’t manage to convince us as he couldn’t sink his teeth into the character. The character lacked finesse that might have made it seem more believable. With Sohum Shah, we had high expectations because of his strong performance in Tumbbad but he fails terribly here as he didn’t get enough material in terms of the screenplay to make his character feel real. Ileana D’Cruz also looked unfit for the character of a journalist who exposed such a big scam as she was sidelined by the writer. She has a strong part to play as she is the narrator of the movie. Nikita as Hemant’s wife was only reduced to just a pretty face. View this post on Instagram 2. Nothing New To Offer And Wavered ScreenplayAs we had already seen the story in detail, we were expecting something new and fresh. The film was surely at a disadvantage because the show had raised the bar way too high. The director could have taken a different take on the entire fiasco, maybe he could have focused on the emotional journey of Hemant. There were some scenes that weren’t just required and didn’t fit in. One more thing in the screenplay and plot that we found off was Bachchan’s evil laughs in between because that was genuinely annoying. View this post on Instagram 3. Dialogues Lacked PunchThe dialogues seem half-baked and badly written. Why do we say that? For instance, there’s a scene wherein Ileana’s character and Hemant are in conversation after he gets to know that there’s someone from his team who’s exposing all his secrets to her. He asks her, ‘Vibhishan Kon Hai’. Yes, you heard it right. There’s one more dialogue in the movie that makes you feel like the writing needed to be a tad bit sharper - ‘jo baadal garajte hai, woh baraste nahi.’ Dialogues are the soul and backbone of the movie and they didn’t do justice here. The characters fell victim to overdramatized writing. 4. Too RushedYou can argue with us on the fact that it’s a movie and it wasn’t easy for the director to put in everything in just 2.5 hours. We somewhere agree too but the way it has been shown, it looks rushed and the damage could have been fixed if the age-old method of flashback story-telling was avoided as the movie missed detailing. Perhaps, had the movie followed the linear progression, it wouldn’t have looked this rushed. Also, the director could have focused a little more on his initial struggles. 5. Great Supporting Cast Left With No Scope To ActThe supporting cast consists of Saurabh Shukla, Samir Soni, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ram Kapoor and Supriya Pathak but unfortunately, they didn’t have enough screen time to make their mark and it’s sad that such talent was wasted. Final Verdict:It could have been much better if the characters didn’t fall prey to the overdramatized writing style. Have you watched the movie yet? If you have, then do you agree with us?
