Varun Dhawan’s Legacy ‘Chalk’ Sneakers Are Legit The Chunkiest Shoes We’ve Ever Seen

That fact that Varun Dhawan is a massive sneakerhead is no secret. He has one of the most varied and awe-inducing collections of sneakers in Bollywood.  Time and again, he has shown us, as well as the rest of the Hindi film industry, just how quirky his sensibilities are when it comes to sneakers. © Viral Bhayani From sneakers that legit look they have been made out of fur, to a pair of really zany, rainbow-coloured sneakers, he has worn every kind of sneaker that one can think of. © Viral Bhayani Well, this time around, he was spotted wearing perhaps the chunkiest of sneakers we have ever seen. 
So chunky, in fact, that the treads on the sole of the sneakers look as if they are as deep as that of a car’s tyre. © Viral Bhayani But first, let’s have a look at his outfit.
Varun was spotted outside the offices of Maddock Films, wearing a rather basic, but functional outfit - a black T-shirt with a pair of relax-fit, black joggers.  We also like the Idee clubmaster-styled sunglasses that he has paired with the outfit.  © Viral Bhayani All in all, this is actually a nice way to colour coordinate your outfits, and go for a monochrome outfit. © Viral Bhayani The centrepiece, so to speak, of Varun’s ensemble, however, are his sneakers, and boy are they something special. © Reebok Varun is seen here wearing the Classic Leather Legacy Sneakers In Chalk Blue, from Reebok. At first glance, they seem like any other, run of the mill sneakers.  © Reebok Upon looking closely, one will realise, that these are perhaps the chunkiest sneakers anyone in Bollywood has ever worn. 
In fact, the treads on the sole of the sneaks, look humongous. They, in fact, look as big and deep, as the treads we see on the tyres of a car.  © Reebok The upper of these sneakers are made using sustainable materials. The sneakers itself are a part of their ‘[Ree]Cycled’ sustainable collection. © Viral Bhayani Considering that we have seen Varun wear sneakers that cost as much as a new iPhone, these sneakers are actually affordable. 
Although they retail for about Rs 6,599, sneakerheads can pick these pair up for a lot less, if they know where to look and know how to play their cards right. © Viral Bhayani As quirky as these sneakers look, we actually kinda dig its aesthetic and colourway. The fact that they are somewhat sustainably made, is another cool aspect.

Rajdeep Sardesai 'Baffled' As India Today Survey Predicts Third Modi Wave

Rajdeep Sardesai is no stranger to being trolled. On Thursday evening, the senior journalist found himself occupying Twitter's number one trend yet again. The occasion this time was the Mood Of The Nation (MOTN) survey released by India Today in partnership with Karvy Insights and its findings. We'll come back to Rajdeep again in a bit. But first, a bit about the survey. MOTN is a bi-annual survey conducted by India Today in an attempt to gauge the political sentiment across the country. In this edition, a total of 12,232 interviews were conducted across 97 parliamentary and 194 assembly constituencies across 19 states between January 3 and January 13 to understand which party would come to power if the 2024 General Election was held today. MOTN survey highlightsNational Democratic Alliance (NDA) would win 321 seats as compared to the 353 seats it won in 2019 NDA's vote share is likely to be 43% as opposed to 45% in 2019 United Progressive Alliance (UPA) to show no improvement from its 2019 tally  73 % Indians are satisfied with PM Modi's management of the Covid-19 crisis PM Modi's approval ratings stand at an impressive 74%  With that context, let's shift focus back on Rajdeep who was 'slightly baffled' by one data point in particular.  66 % say income decreased during COVID times, 19 % say they lost jobs. And yet 67% say central govt has handled economic fallout of the pandemic well. Slightly baffling but then that’s what the poll says. Faith in govt remains high. #MoodOfTheNation @IndiaToday — Rajdeep Sardesai (@sardesairajdeep) January 21, 2021 That's not all. During the course of the discussion surrounding Covid-19 and its response, Rajdeep wondered why healthcare workers weren't particularly keen on getting vaccinated. To which he was met with this response from top cardiologist Dr. Naresh Trehan, who also happens to be Aroon Purie's (Rajdeep's boss and promoter of the TV Today Group) brother-in-law.  Now its Dr Naresh Trehan turn to scold @Sardesairajdeep on his own show Dr Trehan was speaking on Unnecessary Political controversy created on the Corona Vaccine but Rajdeep kept interrupting only to get scolded 🤷‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/g9yUDcTXiX — Rosy (@rose_k01) January 21, 2021 Twitter junta obviously had a field day thanks to this flashpoint between the two. Not to mention the delight of the pro-government section that made merry (at Rajdeep's expense) on account of the survery's results. Today, Rajdeep gets scolded by Dr Naresh Trehan. I think there is no one on his show except Rhea Chakraborty who has not scolded him. — saket साकेत ಸಾಕೇತ್ 🇮🇳 (@saket71) January 21, 2021In Modi's high approval ratings, Rajdeep sees his own failures. How irrelevant and ineffective he is. He sounds like the losing captain giving a post match interview. — Ram (@ramprasad_c) January 22, 2021 Interestingly, Prof Shamika Ravi reminded Rajdeep of another such instance of him being startled at the findings of India's Today's MOTN survey. Déjà vu! How can you be repeatedly surprised by your own surveys, Rajdeep? Exact same thing happened 6 months back when you found the numbers "bewildering". May I suggest, the next time just add a few open-ended questions to the questionnaire. It might not be such a deep mystery. https://t.co/0ab9y4rvks — Prof Shamika Ravi (@ShamikaRavi) January 21, 2021 Here's the clip from the MOTN survey in August 2020, when Rajdeep was 'absolutely bewildered' to learn that the Indian public stood firmly behind PM Modi despite the economic hardship triggered by the lockdown. Who handled the economy better - PM Narendra Modi or Manmohan Singh? This is what #MOTN2020 survey shows. @ShamikaRavi, Sr Fellow of Brookings Institute, decodes the findings. #MOTN2020 LIVE at https://t.co/4fqxBVUizL
(@RahulKanwal & @sardesairajdeep) pic.twitter.com/xRAVq0kMyz — IndiaToday (@IndiaToday) August 7, 2020 Apart from being roasted for expressing shock at India Today's MOTN surveys (past and present), Rajdeep has been right-wing Twitter favorite whipping boy for a while. From being slayed by Smriti Irani to the high-profile Sushant Singh Rajput death case, where he copped serious flak for his comments, Rajdeep continues to be at the centre of Twitter rage.

WhatsApp Introduces Voice & Video Call Feature On Web Amidst All Privacy Concerns

WhatsApp is currently having a hard time retaining its users in India where its new privacy policy has stirred some controversy. There's a lot of misinformation about WhatsApp's new policy and how it aims to read our private conversation to serve us ads. Well amidst all the controversy, WhatsApp has decided to releases a couple of new features. WhatsApp users can now use both video and voice call features on the web. The feature is now rolling out slowly to all the users, so you should have it soon. © Reuters A lot of people have shared the screenshots of the new feature, although we don't see it go live for us. Looking at the screenshots, you can see the voice and video call buttons with beta written over. Wabetainfo, a popular source for WhatsApp info also confirmed the same and said the feature is now rolling out in more countries.
Since the feature is currently in beta, it may not be available for all. You'll have to be a part of WhatsApp's beta program. Even then you may or may not get the feature due to the location limitation. “WhatsApp is rolling out beta calls for specific users but unfortunately, being a beta feature, it’s available for very few people. We hope you’re lucky but, if it doesn’t, don’t worry: every day more users receive that activation and, at present, WhatsApp Desktop has a higher priority,” the Wabetainfo read. © Unsplash We don't have much info about how the feature works, but if the reports are something to go by, then it looks like a new window will open up every time you receive a call or try to make a call through the WhatsApp web.
This particular feature was first said to be in development back in October 2020 and it's finally rolling out. WhatsApp is yet to officially announce the feature, which means it's going to be a while until it rolls out for everyone. And since we're talking about new features, it looks like WhatsApp is also planning to introduce a "Read Later" feature. You'll be able to mark chats as "Read Later" which is basically an improved version of Archived chats and the incoming notifications for that particular chat will be muted. Source: Indiatoday

Kartik Aaryan Wore A Super Quirky T-Shirt & Its Unbelievable Price Left Our Jaws On The Floor

Kartik Aaryan's career graph in Bollywood is definitely on the rise. 
After giving some stellar performance in movies like Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Luka Chuppi and Me Meri Patni Aur Woh, he has proved his mettle in Bollywood. But, it's not just this arena that he has been excelling in.  Stylewise too, Kartik has been hitting it out of the park and when it comes to street style fashion or normcore fashion, he has been able to score some massive points. © Viral Bhayani Coming to his recent style statements, we couldn't miss out on his looks, especially when he was seen wearing a pair of dirty white sneakers or the time he wore the most colourful sneakers to the airport. 
For the unversed, Kartik is a major sneakerhead, who has been on a roll with his collectables. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani While the recent instance too made it clear that Aaryan is all about the sneakers he wears, our eyes this time went to the T-shirt he wore, instead. 
The style is quite unique and is definitely not an everyday T-shirt. Take a look. © Off-White Kartik is seen wearing Pascal Medicine Oversized  T-shirt by Off-White. 
This is a short-sleeve T-shirt in white, inspired by Pascal Paintings and it comes with an 'Off' logo print on the front, with Pascal medicine graphics on the back.  Furthermore, it has a crewneck collar and oversized fitting. Overall, the T-shirt looks unconventional and since it's made in cotton, it's a breathable style option. © Off-Whiite Speaking of its price, this T-shirt is a tad bit expensive than the usual cost. It's worth $224, which, if you convert, sums to Rs 16,359. Add customs and import duties to it, and the price will definitely shoot up. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the other details of his outfit, he is seen wearing a long parka in beige layered over the quirky T-shirt. 
He has paired it with classic blue denim and the sneakers, are on a whole new level. These drool-worthy pair are Armani's high sneakers, which Kartik has worn before and they look really exquisite.  The outfit isn't loud and actually makes for a very fashionable street outfit, if you ask us. © Viral Bhayani We guess Kartik, besides upping his acting skills is also working hard on the fashion front, as he never fails to look dapper.
On the work front, he will soon be seen in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Dostana 2 and Dhamaka.

Looks Like Ali Fazal Can’t Ditch His ‘Guddu Bhaiya’ Aesthetic Even In Mumbai’s Winters

Ali Fazal, without a doubt, is one of the most talented actors in the OTT space and in cinema.  Heck, the man is so good, that every now and then, you can see in some notable Hollywood or British production, playing a vital character. © 20th Century Studios When it comes to fashion, we love how Ali aces the boho-chic aesthetic from time to time. 
However, it seems that no matter how hard he tries, he just can’t ditch the ‘Guddu Bhaiya’ aesthetic.  © Viral Bhayani Very recently, Ali was spotted at the screening of Richa Chadda’s upcoming film, Madam Chief Minister in his quintessential boho-chic style.
Guddu was seen in a double-denim outfit, compromising of a denim shirt and jeans.  Now, going double denim is always a bit of a risk, given just how difficult it is to pull off this sort of a coordinated outfit.  In fact, it is actually considered to be a fashion faux pas by many. © Viral Bhayani However, given that this is Ali we are speaking about, you can safely assume that he styled the outfit in a rather sophisticated manner.
First off is that white undershirt, which helps by lending the outfit some semblance of contrast. One of the biggest aspects that work against double denim is just that, a lack of contrast. Secondly, we love how he anchored the outfit using a pair of tan leather Chelsea boots.  We believe that no matter what one’s sense of style is, every man should have a pair of a dope looking Chelsea boots, given just how versatile they are. © Viral Bhayani The reason why Ali’s Chelsea boots become so vital for this outfit, is again, contrast. The brown leather boots are set against the monotony of the rest of the outfit and give it a much-needed splash of colour to the overall look.
© Viral Bhayani We also like the manner in which he has tied a plain bandana around his arm. 
The highlight of the outfit though is that shawl that Ali is carrying. It completely changes the vibe of the outfit and gives it a more rustic appeal, something that we have come to expect from Fazal’s outfits.  © Viral Bhayani The grey chevrons on the black base of the shawl, give it a very tribal, but modern appeal, and sits in contrast with the ensemble, both thematically, as well as in terms of colour.
All in all, this is one heck of an outfit from the man.  Take a bow, Ali, for that’s a great way to class up a regular evening outfit!

FAU-G Is Coming Out Next Week And The Game Developer Says It's Not A PUBG Clone

There's a lot of hype around FAU-G and it's finally coming out next week. We're still a few days away from the release date, but we now have a lot of info about FAU-G and what to expect from it when it officially comes out on January 26.   The folks over at IGN India spoke to FAU-G developer Ncore Games Founder and Chairman Vishal Gondal, and Co-Founder and COO Ganesh Hande to learn more about it and here are some of the key points to note - ©Ncore Games No Battle Royale or Multiplayer Mode At Launch

Ever since FAU-G was announced, everybody thought it was going to be a PUBG Mobile alternative and it'll have a battle royale mode. However, Ncore Games has confirmed that the game won't have a BR mode or even a multiplayer mode for that matter at launch.

“We do want to be clear and we will also mention this in the game,” he says. “There will be battle royale mode and PvP [player versus player] modes, but they will clearly be labelled as ‘Coming Soon’," Vishal said.

So when the game comes out, it'll have a story mode that stays true to the Galwan Valley setting. Ncore Games says we can expect more features and updates over the period of the next six to eight months.  
©Ncore Games FAU-G Will Have Ads?

Yes, FAU-G will have ads, however, they won't be of the kind that spams you all the time. Ncore Games says a player can watch an ad once or twice a day to get some currency to buy cosmetics. So yes, the game will also have cosmetics that'll eventually be tied to players' progression across different modes. The game will also have a battle pass but it won't be available at launch.

Can Your Android Phones Run FAU-G?

Ncore Games says that the game will come with support to set your graphics options between Ultra to low. So if a player thinks the game is lagging on his/her device, they can change the settings accordingly and try. The game will be capped at 60FPS even on devices with a higher refresh rate.

You can check out the detailed write-up on IGN India to learn more about the game and be prepared to play it next week. We'll have more to talk about the game once it comes out, so be sure to stay tuned.

Galaxy S21 Ultra Review: Taking The Android Flagship To A New Level That Will Be Hard To Beat

The Samsung Galaxy Series has come a long way since its inception. It has finally culminated in an almost perfect smartphone with the S21 series this year. After years of experience in launching premium smartphones, Samsung may have finally got almost everything right with the S21 Ultra. I have been using Samsung's latest flagship for almost a week now and my experience with this smartphone has left me wanting to make this phone my primary device in 2021. From the camera to the performance to the build quality, everything seems right about the Galaxy S21. Here's what I think about Samsung's latest flagship that will be hard to beat this year. Design and Display  Hands down, my favourite thing about the S21 Ultra has to do with the build quality and the tone of the 'Phantom Black' colour. It's the blackest of black you can find on a smartphone and to be fair, pictures really don't do justice for the beautiful design Samsung has opted to use this year. The Galaxy S21 Ultra makes other premium smartphones feel cheap with the exception of the iPhone 12 Pro. The Galaxy S21 Ultra makes smartphones like the OnePlus 8 Pro feel like budget offerings which is a testament to what Samsung has achieved with this phone.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla At the back, you will find a very minimalistic look with a camera module at the top left corner. There is a more prominent bump this time around which didn't really bother me as much as I thought it would. It looks quite good and doesn't really interfere with the overall experience of the smartphone. Sure, you will have to use a case in case you want to keep the smartphone flat on a surface, however you will need to purchase that separately. Apart from the massive camera module, the design of the smartphone is fairly simple and elegant. We do have to mention that the phone feels great to hold in the hand, thanks to its aluminium frame.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Much like any Samsung flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S21 Ultra has IP68 water and dust resistance rating, supports wireless charging and uses the Infinity-O display design. Having said that, Samsung has removed the ability to expand storage, as the phone does not have a microSD slot in the SIM tray this time around. This might be disappointing for existing Samsung users who require extra storage space for apps, games and pictures. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Samsung is known for using the best display units for its flagship phones and the case remains the same with the Galaxy S21 Ultra as well. In fact, it may just be the best display we've used on a smartphone yet - even better than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The phone has a fairly large 6.8-inch WQHD+ display with a resolution of 3,200 X 1,440. The display does have a slight curve to it but it's rather easy to use. The display also uses an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz where the screen can go as low as 10Hz for maximum battery output. Browsing on the S21 Ultra was a delight, thanks to the animations and scrolling speed optimised for OneUI 3.1. The combination of the vivid display and the great implementation of the adaptive refresh rate is by far the standout feature on the S21 Ultra here. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Needles to say, the display quality is second to none and watching movies, TV shows, Twitch and gaming is a sublime experience on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Colour calibration on the display is extremely accurate and is not over saturated either. The display also supports HDR10+ content which makes watching content on apps like Netflix feel like a dream. In addition, users can also use the display with Samsung's stylus, the S-Pen as it now supports all the features you can use on the Galaxy Note Series. You will have to purchase the S Pen and the case separately so that you can use it more effectively. Camera The Galaxy S21 Ultra comes with a wide array of sensors such as a 12MP wide-angle camera, a 108MP main sensor with OIS, a 10MP 3x optical telephoto sensor with OIS, and a 10MP 10x optical telephoto sensor. In our experience, the S21 Ultra can capture some incredible images with great detail. We particularly like the 'Single Take' feature quite a bit which was also present in the Galaxy S20 Ultra as well. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The S21 Ultra's dual telephoto lens setup does help in capturing images from afar with better detail, however, I do feel the images feel a bit soft. The 10X telephoto lens needs a bit of work in our opinion as the final image doesn't really feel like an image shot using optical zoom. Having said that, Samsung has improved the stability in this mode as the S21 Ultra shakes far less when zoomed as compared to its predecessor.  Similarly, the S21 Ultra's night mode could also use some improvement in order to catch up with its competition i.e. the iPhone 12 Series. For an Android device, the Night Mode works fairly well and beats most of the other Android devices with ease. Portrait mode on the S21 Ultra is accurate most of the time at detecting edges of people, however we do feel that there haven't been any noticeable improvements from its predecessors. Overall, the images do look quite impressive and for once, feel more balanced instead of having the usual Samsung tuning with pictures looking a bit oversaturated. Pictures look crisper than usual, however we did notice a bit of softness in low-light images taken without the Night Mode.  Some housekeeping notes about the camera app - it does feel a bit unintuitive to use as some features are buried deep into menus. It would be prudent if Samsung could streamline some of the key features and bring them to the forefront such as Night Mode, rather than have a user dig these features from the 'More' section. Samsung could also implement something similar to Apple where the cameras toggle night mode automatically if there isn't enough ambient light.  If you want to get a better idea of the Galaxy S21 Ultra's picture quality, have a look at the gallery below: Performance and Battery Life  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Now, this is a hot topic for Indian consumers since Samsung uses Exynos chipsets for its smartphones that are sold in the country. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is powered by Samsung's latest 5nm Exynos 2100 chipset and unlike past experiences, Samsung has sorted out most of its silicon problems on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Right out of the box, we did not see any throttling of any kind or any overheating issues unlike the Galaxy Note 20 from last year. In fact, the Exynos 2100 may just be the best chipset Samsung has ever made and trust me when I say this, they have listened to fans this time around.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Exynos 2100 is suprisingly well optimised in terms of performance. In some of our graphic tests, it even beat the iPhone 12 Pro this year. For example, in our 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme test, the Exynos version scored 7523 points in the test and in comparison has better performance than its predecessor, landing it a spot amongst the top five performing smartphones. Having said that, the Exynos 2100 does need better-sustained GPU performance in games like Genshin Impact or with games that have to render more assets.  Stability is a slight issue for larger open-world games at the moment which may be fixed in a future update. We do have to point out that games like Genshin Impact have not been optimised for Samsung's new chipset yet which could be the reason behind the stability problems. This isn't really Samsung's fault as the developer needs to optimise the game for the chipset and not the other way around. However, you should face no problems in competitive games like Call of Duty or upcoming MOBA games like League of Legends: Wild Rift. We did not notice any frame rate drops in any of our gaming sessions which is the ideal situation you want any smartphone to be in.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla If you are wondering about CPU performance, after a recent update, there was a huge difference in performance which left me quite surprised. In our Geekbench 5 test, the S21 Ultra (Exynos) scored 1035 (single-core) and 3136 (multi-core) points which are at par with recent flagship smartphones. In real life usage, the phone performed reliably well and did not falter in the overall experience. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is by far the most balanced smartphone yet, made with a chipset that may not be the popular choice amongst Android fanboys but it really does hold its own.   I also have to give a special shoutout to the software team at Samsung mobiles for the incredible experience we got with OneUI 3.1. The software is highly optimised for the hardware and has become our favourite Android skin this year, overtaking OxygenOS 11. Samsung has made improvements to the overall software experience that in my opinion is the best you can get right now. It feels more streamlined, stable and looks absolutely phenomenal. The only issue I have is the lack of using my own icon packs natively. Features like Samsung DeX, Link to Windows, a dedicated Kids Mode are some of the thoughtful features other phones lack. Other features like connectivity with Galaxy Buds Live, Buds+ and other Samsung accessories is flawless and is the only thing that comes close to Apple's offering. When I say the phone is highly optimised for the hardware, it also reflects in the battery life of the phone. The Galaxy S21 Ultra can easily last you 1.5 days, thanks to its massive 5000mAh battery. However, if you do use the display in WQHD+ mode, you can expect it to go down a bit, especially if you have adaptive refresh rate turned on for the higher resolution. The Galaxy S21 Ultra, unfortunately, does not come with a charger in the box, however the good news is you can use any third-party Power Delivery (PD) charger with the phone. The phone supports up to 25W PD fast charging and 15W wireless charging which makes it easier for existing Samsung/Android users to use their previous chargers.  The Final Say  Samsung has really knocked it out of the park with the Galaxy S21 Ultra this time around with a great software experience, improved performance and a premium design that is currently unmatched. With one of the best displays we've ever used on a smartphone to offer great flexibility with its cameras, the S21 Ultra will be setting a new standard for flagship devices in 2021.

Creators Of 'WandaVision' Breakdown The Process Of Producing A Show With Different Timelines

Marvel Studios' latest feature, WandaVision is given treatment like no preceding Marvel storyline. It follows the seemingly peaceful and idealised suburban lives of super-powered beings Wanda and Vision, but soon, both start to suspect and question everything around them. © Marvel The series stars Elizabeth Olsen who plays the role of Wanda Maximoff, Paul Bettany who plays the of Vision, along with Kathryn Hahn as Agnes, and Teyonah Parris who plays Monica Rambeau, Monica was introduced to everyone with Captain Marvel earlier. Here, actor Kat Dennings has reprised her role as Darcy from the films, Thor and Thor: The Dark World, and Randall Park reprises his role as Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and The Wasp. 
© Marvel WandaVision's Director and Executive Producer Matt Shakman said, "It was really important to us from the get-go that we weren't parodying sitcoms. We studied tone and style from era to era. We wanted to make sure the actors were fluent in all of these different styles. So, we had a sitcom boot camp with the cast before we began."
© Marvel "We watched old episodes and we tried on different styles to figure out the physicality and the sound for each era. We wanted to make sure that what we were creating was absolutely faithful to the original touchstone shows. To that end, we watched lots of episodes, read books about the making of those shows, and interviewed, whenever possible, people who had actually worked on those shows. I went to lunch with the great Dick Van Dyke and Kevin Feige before we started production on WandaVision. That was a lovely experience and a great way to hear how they approached production on his show, which was an inspiration for our first episode.”

© Marvel Talking about her experience, Writer and Executive Producer Jac Shaeffer pointed out, "I had all these posters of great series through the years for the initial pitch to the writers. We watched episodes together and everybody went home with DVDs to bone up. At the heart of all of the shows, we landed on his family. That’s what we were chasing. It’s a love story and then the twins arrive—the home is the hub, the life force of the show. We are not creating a parody of sitcoms. We really want to celebrate them and do our own version of these shows."
© Marvel WandaVision is releasing its new episodes every week on Friday. The show has each episode with a distinct theme that pays homage to a particular decade of television history.

Rahane Was Offered A ‘Kangaroo Cake’ To Cut For Victory Celebrations & What He Did Next Won Hearts

Sometimes, winning is easy, but what truly defines a person is how they handle that win and how respectful they are to their competitors and Ajinkya Rahane just proved to be the most humble and respectable person in that regard. Proud to be a part of this unit 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/bZZupXEAfE — Ajinkya Rahane (@ajinkyarahane88) January 19, 2021 The cricketer was, of course, leading the Indian cricket team in the absence of captain Virat Kohli and he was instrumental in Team India's victory against Australia in this historic test series. Thank you everyone for sending across all your good wishes
It’s your constant support and belief in the team that kept us motivated to bring the trophy back home🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/koPpqcW1VW — Ajinkya Rahane (@ajinkyarahane88) January 20, 2021 The entire country is celebrating, but no more than the players themselves who made this win possible, and well, rightfully so. Everyone's finally reaching India after months in Australia and they're being welcomed back with so much love and appreciation. Rahane returned to a grand welcome and a special cake was made for him in his honour.  The cake looked like a cricket pitch with a kangaroo sitting on top of it holding the Indian flag. © Twitter While the cake seemed like a genuinely great gesture for his victory, he still refused to cut it. Why, you ask?
Well, out of respect for his opponents, of course. Since the Kangaroo is the national animal of Australia, and the Australian team is often referred to as the Kangaroos, he thought it wouldn't be appropriate to cut the animal on top of the cake.  So wholesome, this is why cricket is called the gentlemen's game. The whole incident was telecasted on a Marathi news channel, TV9 Marathi. Very inspiring. Great gesture @ajinkyarahane88!
Your simplicity, humbleness, sportsmanship & dignity is very inspiring. pic.twitter.com/BHdXC3zC6f — Dipanshu Kabra (@ipskabra) January 21, 2021 So wholesome. That lady was telling 'Cut the Kangaroo' but he politely declined — AKshay M Wagh (@wakshay29) January 21, 2021 What is that picture, though? Ajinkya Rahane refused to cut cake with kangaroo on top of it.

If I could calculate respect for him it would be more than SENSEX these days...

#AjinkyaRahane pic.twitter.com/IVzdJgDeQ3 — चमन Prawn 🦐 (@MachaliFry) January 21, 2021 He did cut a non-kangaroo cake! In this covid time they are celebrating with cutting cake
Imagine the grand welcome to Team India if it was a normal day@ajinkyarahane88 @ImRo45@imShard @PrithviShaw pic.twitter.com/6OR3glioYp — 𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒎𝒚𝒂 (@Soumya401) January 21, 2021 Rahane, who was expected to pull out miracle victories with a struggling Team India in the absence of Virat Kohli, turned out to be an absolute wizard as the captain. © Reuters Team India defeated Australia in the fourth and final Test of the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the infamous ‘Gabba Fortress’, the stadium in which the hosts hadn’t lost a single Test match in the last 33 years.
© Reuters And contrary to what happens in most of the white-ball matches, this series win was not the result of the efforts put in by anyone or two “in-form” players. 
It was truly a cohesive effort by the deep talent pool of Indian cricket that made this remarkable journey come to such an elite conclusion.

Hitman 3 Review: The Best Game In The Series Yet That Gives a Spectacular Send-Off To The Trilogy

If you were to tell me that the Hitman series would become one of my favourite stealth games of all time, I would not take you seriously. However, that’s exactly what IO interactive has managed to achieve with the third and final instalment of the modern Hitman series. I’ve been craving a Splinter Cell-like stealth game all of the last generation and Hitman 3 fulfilled my needs this time. Previous titles in the franchise were a bit goofy and lacked a compelling narrative that makes me care about the franchise. However, with Hitman 3, IO Interactive has managed to turn all of that around and delivered a Hitman game that also has a great storyline. © IO Interactive The Hitman series’ formula has not changed much from a decade ago, however the new games offer more freedom than ever before. Hitman 3 has a total of six missions and it's up to you how you want to go about them. Each mission starts with a briefing in the style of a Mission: Impossible movie and the first level even seems inspired by Ghost Protocol. While six missions may not sound like a great deal, each mission can be replayed to death with countless variables or styles of play. You can also play different levels in different modes to amp up the difficulty or completely change how a level can be played again. © IO Interactive To spice things up, IO Interactive have also included a level set in an old family mansion where you have to solve a murder mystery. You get to check out the secret passages and disguise yourself as a detective or sleuth. It is a big departure from Hitman’s traditional mechanics and how levels play out but we liked how it shakes up the traditional style of playing Hitman is known for.
Every mission is different from each other and has been designed with painstaking detail, giving you the freedom to approach it in every manner possible. You can poison your target, go in guns blazing or come up with creative ways to eliminate your target. Much like thriller movies, the game takes you to different parts of the world with each mission. The first missions take place in a glamourous Dubai skyscraper while in another you might find yourself in a nightclub in Berlin. Each level offers something new that makes you want to replay missions and approach them differently each time. Each mission offers a different level of immersion that I truly did not expect from a Hitman game. IO Interactive has managed to craft levels that will be remembered until the franchise makes a return.   © IO Interactive As we mentioned before, Hitman 3 is a huge departure from previous games where it tones down the goofiness and takes itself seriously. There’s an overarching story here which takes the game back to its roots instead of being a sandbox game. The story is quite intriguing and very much in line with spy movies you may have seen in the past decade. The plot of the game is mostly enjoyable, but some of the conspiracy tropes were quite predictable. Nevertheless, it still is a great story to experience in the end as it ends Agent 47’s story on a high note. © IO Interactive When it comes to the game mechanics, Hitman 3 has not expanded much, probably because there was nothing left to fix. The “don't fix it if it ain't broke” idiom is perfectly applicable here as every mechanic from the starting of the franchise is at your disposal here. While I would have liked to see some new gadgets thrown into the mix, we only get a smart camera that aids in achieving objectives, surveying your surroundings and solving puzzles. The new gadget doesn’t reinvent the wheel in any way or form, however it is a welcome addition to your arsenal. Apart from the new gadget addition, Hitman 3 is still very much a stealth game where you have to focus on sneaking past people, change disguises if suspected and hide bodies in closets like the previous game. It’s very much a sequel to Hitman 2 in terms of gameplay but this time around there is focus on the story as well. While the formula largely remains the same, you will experience some twists and unexpected moments that show us what future Hitman games can become.
The Final VerdictHitman 3 is probably the best game in the new trilogy that puts more focus on the story while keeping the gameplay mechanics true to its roots. From exhilarating levels to beautiful graphics and a compelling story, Hitman 3 is the perfect send-off any franchise could get.

A hilarious turn of events has made The Greek Prime Minister an overnight sensation on social media. 
Let's take you through the events that quickly made his name enter the list of heartthrobs in the country. © Reuters Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the 52-year-old Greek Prime Minister had gone to receive his second dose of the vaccine at the Attikon hospital, on Monday. 
In order to seamlessly complete the procedure, he had to take off his shirt rather than rolling his sleeves up. When he took off his shirt to reveal his bare shirt, a couple of photos were taken which were later posted on social media.  A photo from the moment is making rounds on social media which left people admiring the Greek Prime Minister's bare chest. © Reuters The Greek Prime Minister has now become an instant sex symbol after he receiving his COVID-19 vaccine shot.
Underneath his shirt,  the Prime Minister has a toned and ripped physique that people on the internet clearly noticed.  In fact, internet users started downright thirsting after the PM, calling him things like, “daddy” and “hella sexy”. LAAAAAAAAYYYDIIIIIIIIIEEESSS pic.twitter.com/Ctp5HFiODP — Dino Sofos (@dinosofos) January 18, 2021 British folks on Twitter wondered if their PM Boris Johnson would follow the Greek PM's footsteps, while others compared the Greek PM to 'doing a Putin', in reference to the famous photo of the Russian president half-naked on horseback. © Reuters Another Twitter user called the PM a 'sexy daddy' for his ripped physique and chest hair.
Our prime minister is a sexy daddy 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷 pic.twitter.com/4ggBiGYpLV — Doomed (@profilepicnotme) January 18, 2021 The fact that we're moving away from a clean bare chest to appreciate a chest with hair on it is also worth noticing. Damn the Greece 🇬🇷 prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis surely has a sexy gorgeous hairy chest love it , but sure love Croatian Prime Minister Zdravko Marić Captain Croatia 🇭🇷 pic.twitter.com/E2AVYaUxIh — Alin Campan (@GURBEDIU1987) January 20, 2021 One can be well-groomed without having to remove chest hair contrary to some popular misconceptions out there. The Greek Prime Minister, Mr Mitsotakis received his first shot first on December 27, this was when the doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had first rolled out across different countries in the European Union. The PM had pointed out how the rollout was “a great day for science and the European Union. We hope that, with time, even those of our fellow citizens who are suspicious of vaccination will be convinced it is the right thing to do.”  He was one of the first people in Greece to get the first dose of the vaccine back in December.  Following the rounds of vaccination of healthcare workers and vulnerable people, Greece has begun vaccinating the 'general population' earlier this month.

Varun's ‘Brain Dead’ Sneakers With Fur Laces & Luggage Strap Pants Have Puzzled Us Completely

Sneakers have become a huge part of every celebrity's style. Some bank on a basic pair of sneakers, while some are seen in outlandish shoes. 
Irrespective of the style, sneakers are undoubtedly a statement piece that can instantly amplify any basic look. © Viral Bhayani Varun Dhawan too has banked on this style several times and the formula has worked for him often. 
Dhawan is quite fashion-forward with his choices. Even though he is mostly seen wearing Reebok sneakers, he still never fails to make every look count.  Think colourful sneakers, classic legacy shoes or dad sneakers, Varun has plausibly done it all. © Reebok Varun is wearing Brain Dead sneakers by Reebok and the iconic silhouette comes draped in mesh and nappy suede. 
These also have the brain dead logo on the tongue tag and the sides. Add to that, the sneakers have fuzzy yellow laces. © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we are a fan of his cargo pants here, since they have extra long strap protruding out of the pockets. Not just that, these pants are also minimally distressed. 
He has paired it with a white T-shirt and layered it with a grey hoodie. Overall, this is a perfect mix of street-style fashion.

Shardul Thakur’s ‘Made In India’ Custom Backpack Is As Dope As His Affordable Jordan Sneakers

Shardul Thakur surely is on cloud nine.  After a stunning performance at the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Australia, particularly in the test match in Gabba, it is actually reasonable to expect one of the star performers to be so ecstatic. © Reuters It seems that apart from smashing Australian bowlers to smithereens, Shardul also knows how to dress down in style.
© Viral Bhayani Recently, he was spotted at the Mumbai Airport, returning with the Indian Cricket Team after their Australian tour, where he was spotted in perhaps one of the coolest outfits that one can wear while taking a flight.
© Viral Bhayani Shardul was seen wearing a white T-shirt with basic black joggers. On top of that, he had thrown on an oversized jacket in military camouflage. 
What caught our eye though, was the rather quirky pair of sneakers that he was wearing. © Viral Bhayani Shardul was seen wearing the Jordan Max 200 Lace-Up Sneakers from Nike. 
Designed in collaboration with Michael Jordan, arguable one of the all-time greats of basketball, the Jordan Max 200s or the Air200s as they are commonly referred to, are a pair of legacy sneakers. © Nike Although they are available in a number of colourways, the one that Shardul is seen wearing, in white, cream and red, was one of the original designs that was commissioned by Jordan. 
© Nike One would assume that such legacy sneakers would be insanely expensive. Although they aren’t exactly cheap, they are actually quite affordable, when you consider the legacy of those sneakers.
© Viral Bhayani While the Jordan 200s are listed for an MRP of Rs 10,495, you can actually pick these up for as low as Rs 6,000 if you know where to shop, and if you play your cards right.
© Nike Another piece that caught our eye was Shardul’s bright yellow Backpack. 
They are customised piece from Brune By Voga-Now, one of India’s most prominent luxury leather product makers. They also supply the Indian cricket team with their backpacks and duffle bags. © Viral Bhayani The particular backpack that we see Shardul carrying here is a customised version of the CZ-92, which retails for about Rs 21,999. 
Depending on your customisations, you’re looking at a price tag of roughly Rs 25,000-Rs 30,000. © Viral Bhayani It is actually quite nice to see Indian brands being appreciated by Indian athletes. As for Shardul, all we can say is, take a bow, man.

Karan Pairing His Chappals & PJs With A Rs 25 Lakh Watch Is Casual Dressing Goals

Karan Singh Grover has a dope sense of style. From acing power suits to acing a classic, Indian ethnic outfit, the man has done it all. 
© Viral Bhayani His street outfits, however, are on a different playing field altogether. Very often you will see him wearing some dope looking drop-crotch pants or jogger pyjamas, and some very casual slippers.
© Viral Bhayani Well, he was spotted with Bipasha Basu once again wearing something similar, and boy oh boy, does he look awesome. Karan was seen wearing an unstructured T-shirt, and a waterfall cardigan, and his trademark drop-crotch pyjamas. And of course, there was his trademark pair of slippers, this time in white.
© Viral Bhayani However, the piece that caught everyone’s attention, was the watch that he was wearing.
Now, we have seen a lot of celebrities wearing some really dope looking watches. There was this awesome piece from Hardik Pandya, and also this exotic looking piece from Honey Singh. However, the piece that Karan was seen wearing trumps them all, even though it may be a quarter of the price of what those guys were wearing. © Viral Bhayani Karan is seen here wearing a rather sic looking piece from Hublot, the Swiss luxury watchmaker, based out of Geneva. He is wearing the Big Bang Unico Blue Magic. 
© Viral Bhayani The main case is made out of polished ceramic. The watch has an in-house movement, the HUB1242 Unico Chronograph, which consists of 330 parts, and 43 jewels. It is a work of art, to say the least.
© Hublot The bezel, just like the case, is made of polished blue ceramic and has all of Hublot’s signature design elements - a hexagon, titanium screws et al. All of this gives the watch a very robust appeal.
© Hublot Hublot limited the production of the Blue Magic to just 500 pieces all around the world, which basically means that if someday, the Blue Magic turns out to be a classic Hublot piece, which is extremely collectible for Hublot fans, the watch may be expensive.
© Hublot As of now, getting your hands on one of these will be a task, as they are really difficult to locate in retail. Even if you do manage to find one in retail, be prepared to shell out about $20,900, or roughly Rs 16.75 Lakhs. Add to that your customs and imports and you’re looking at a figure over Rs 25 Lakhs.
© Viral Bhayani Now that’s one heck of a way to tell the world that you’re a baller of a guy when it comes to fashion and style. Well done, Karan, well done indeed.

'Mirzapur' Gets SC Notice For 'Maligning UP's Image' & People Say UP Doesn't Need A Show To Do That

Mirzapur is one of the most beloved shows on an OTT platform across the country.   People loved the first season so much, they were literally counting down the days for the second season to come out. © Prime Video Reportedly, the Supreme Court has sent an official notice to Mirzapur and Prime Video, the platform where it's available to stream, because of a complaint filed about how the web series 'maligns' the image of Mirzapur as well as the state of Uttar Pradesh.
#Mirzapur pic.twitter.com/L4ou0TSKxI — NDTV (@ndtv) January 21, 2021 Yes, we all know Uttar Pradesh is one of the best places in India to live and no, of course, we wouldn't want people to think otherwise.  UP is known for how safe it is, especially for women, and what great infrastructure it has.  UP CM Yogi Adityanath has also done so much to better the condition of the state and not just rename a few places. People are, obviously, unhappy with a fictional show being subjected to this and of course, are questioning the Supreme Court if they're entertaining such complaints instead of working on the real important issues.

Netflix Has Over 200M Subscribers Worldwide & It's The World's Biggest Streaming Service Now

Netflix now has over 200 million subscribers worldwide. Yes, that's the numbers Netflix closed 2020 with, making it the biggest streaming service of its kind in the entire world. 200 million is indeed a huge number and the other services are nowhere close to them. By comparison, Disney Plus, which is gaining a lot of subscribers as well, managed to get 86.8 million subscribers in its first year. Even other services in the US like Hulu, HBO Max, etc. are far behind. Even the services here in India like Prime Video, Hotstar, etc. fall behind. Netflix noted that the subscribers increased by 8.51 million between October and December to hit 203.66 million total. This is not only a huge number but it's also more than what analysts and Netflix itself expected to add in that period. © Unsplash A lot of this goes to Netflix's efforts of creating new and original content.  Among its popular originals during Q4 2020 was Season 4 of The Crown. The streaming service noted that more member households had opted to watch S4 than each of the prior seasons in the first 28 days after its November 15 premiere. The show is said to have over 100 million views, a number that's only going to grow over time.
The COVID 19 pandemic also must have helped Netflix add more users. As more countries around the world started initiating lockdowns, people were flocking to Netflix for entertainment inside the closed walls. The number of subscribers is obviously not going to remain the same throughout the year. It'll depend on whether or Netflix manages to keep its content library fresh. The streaming service apparently has more than 500 titles currently in post-production. So we're expecting a lot of really good movies and shows coming our way in 2021 and beyond. It's going to be awesome! © Unsplash Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings believes that there's a lot more headroom for growth. “We’ve got a lot of subscribers here in the U.S. But we still have a lot more viewing time that we would like to earn with incredible service and incredible content," he said.
