'Stop Playing The Victim', Fans Call Mesut Ozil's Bluff For Seeking Sympathy Over Arsenal Axe

It was in 2010 when a 22-year-old Mesut Ozil first gave everyone a glimpse of his impeccable footballing skills. While Germany couldn't go past eventual champions Spain in the semifinals, Ozil left a big impression on the minds of football pundits and fans on the back of his impressive performances. Thanks to his rise to stardom, the German playmaker secured a lucrative contract with Real Madrid where he spent three years before swapping La Liga for English Premier League (EPL) with a move to Arsenal in 2013. His achievements and feats at Santiago Bernabeu earned him a spectacular reception at the Emirates stadium with the Gunners expecting their new signing to change their fortunes. © Reuters An elegant left-footed player blessed with great vision, Ozil dazzled in the Arsenal shirt in the initial years, under then-manager Arsene Wenger, before hitting a slump in form. Owing to his inconsistency on the pitch, Ozil fell out of favour under Wenger's successor Unai Emery - a situation their new manager Mikel Arteta inherited when he took charge last December.
But, despite his past performances, Arteta gave Ozil a start in his first 10 league games in charge before the global pandemic led to the suspension of the Premier League.  Since 7th March, Ozil has not seen a single minute of competitive action. And, despite being Arsenal's highest-paid player, earning a staggering £350,000-a-week in wages, Ozil was not included in Arteta's 25-man squad for the current EPL season. Dejected by his axing from the 25-man list, Ozil took to social media and penned down an emotional letter expressing his frustration at the club. "This is a difficult message to write to the Arsenal fans that I've played for over the past few years. I'm really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being," Ozil said in a letter he shared on Twitter. ️️ #M1Ö #YaGunnersYa pic.twitter.com/hF7abGklOT — Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) October 21, 2020 "Upon signing my new contract in 2018, I pledged my loyalty and allegiance to the club that I love, Arsenal, and it saddens me that this has not been reciprocated. As I have just found out, loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. Before the coronavirus break, I was really happy with the development under our new coach, Mikel Arteta - we've been on a positive way and I would say my performances were on a really good level," the letter read. "But then, things changed, again, and I was no longer allowed to play football for Arsenal. What else can I say? London still feels like home, I still have many good friends in this team, and I still feel a strong connection with fans of this club," he added. © Reuters If Ozil's dip in form isn't enough, his recent antics off the pitch, too, have weakened his relationship with the club and fans. 
During the pandemic, he was one of three players to refuse to take a 12.5 per cent pay cut which was later reduced to 7.5 per cent after Arsenal qualified for Europe by winning the FA Cup last season. Last December, the Gunners had also distanced themselves from Ozil's comments on Instagram where he spoke out against China's persecution of the Uighur population - a mostly Muslim Turkic people - by claiming the club "has always adhered to the principle of not involving itself in politics". Thus, many football fans slammed Ozil's heartfelt letter as a mere sympathy-seeking publicity stunt. Mesut you need to stop playing the victim, If you truly love our club, you would have agreed to move when given the opportunity to leave, rather than collecting Full pay knowing full well that there’s no future st this club for You! — The Chairman (@goonerck1) October 21, 2020The club have shown their loyalty to you in the shape of £350,000 PER WEEK. If the manager thought you could fit into his team you'd be playing. Arsenal have been ridiculously loyal to you despite your astronomical contract. If you actually cared about Arsenal you'd move clubs. — janderbend (@janderbend) October 21, 2020Bro @MesutOzil1088 if you aren't wanted....U leave!!!!stop all this PR stunts you are pulling,my country's headache is enough for me for now.whether you played well or not,it was communicated to you that aren't in the coaches plan as a good football player who knows his worth, — Orlando Innocent #BBnaija (@Straybulletz) October 21, 2020As an Arsenal fan I don’t want you to wear our shirt again. You have been supporting Erdogan and #Azerbaijan in their #WarCrimes against the Armenians in #Artsakh / Nagorno-Karabakh. Arsenal FC and it’s family of fans doesn’t stand for this. — 🇦🇲 (@hshay77) October 21, 2020Truth be told, Mesut is too greedy, the rest of the team agreed to the pay cut but he didn't, and now he talks about loyalty??? The discussion should be about greed, not loyalty. FOH! — Properties by WILLSTONE HOMES (@saomba) October 22, 2020You see, this right here is the problem. Always itching to talk. Socratis hasn't said anything about being excluded from either squads.....but you.....always with a point to prove.... — kome lincoln e (@lincblaq) October 21, 2020Arsenal is moving on from Özil. When he finally leaves everyone will forget about him and focus on the Real thing which is Arsenal. Lobatan! 🤷‍♂️ — PaulAmo (@Paulexy02) October 22, 2020Dear Mesut, nice PR as always unfortunately outside of football you've concentrated more than on the pitch , since your arrival you've had two decent seasons...@adidasfootball dropped you aswell because let's face it your very average now and the football world knows it. — "Be Excited FC" (@GoonerCraig41) October 21, 2020At USD460,000/week anyone would be "loyal". Didn't he refuse a pay cut at the beginning of the covid19 crisis? Was he loyal then? — Alexei Ramotar (@AlexeiRamotar) October 21, 2020Had Ozil's performances in the last 3 years been as good as his PR we wouldn't have reached this situation. No player is bigger than the club. Time for us fans to move on. — Padfoot (@Prakhar_8) October 21, 2020You only have yourself to blame here. If you was loyal to our club you would of walked away in the summer, giving us more financial firepower. You chose money over helping the club and that is what most fans will remember you for. — Dave Boulton (@DaveyB92) October 21, 2020

Crocodile Makes Surprise Entry Into Kerala Temple & Priests Assure That He Is ‘Pure Vegetarian’

Every day we come across many bizarre incidents and this time, it was rather a scary one. Recently, priests of the Sri Ananthapura temple in north Kerala’s Kasaragod had a visitor that none of us can guess. Yes, a vegetarian crocodile.
According to the priests at the temple, the crocodile had made the temple lake its home for the past many years and this time, he visited the temple and entered the temple premises. The priests also confirmed that this is Babiya’s first-ever entry into the temple. © Unsplash Croc Temple official Chandrasekharan said, “Some reports suggest Babiya entered the sanctum sanctorum but it is not correct. However, it came to the temple premises on Tuesday evening and spent some time there and went back after chief priest Chandraprakash Nambisan asked it go to its permanent habitat-- the temple pond.”
Also, Babiya the crocodile is believed to be vegetarian and no one has any idea as to how the crocodile came to the pond and who named it. But, people around say that the crocodile has been in the temple for over 70 years now and has never acted wild with people. Babiya eats whatever offerings come to the temple and come out whenever the temple priests call for him. © Unsplash Croc However, it is also said the circus personnel must have deposited hatchlings years back in the pond and only one of them survived. The best part is that the crocodile has never attacked anyone.
“The priest feeds Babiya twice a day. At times he puts the rice ball right into its mouth. The priest has a unique chemistry with Babiya. The temple pond has enough fishes and we believe it never attacks or consumes them. It is a fully vegetarian crocodile keeping with the tradition of the ancient temple,” said the temple official. © Unsplash Croc Also, Babiya is a star attraction of the temple and only comes out during feasting hours. Now, that’s a pretty smart croc.

Dell XPS 15 Review: The Best Windows Alternative To MacBook Gets Even Better

We've seen plenty of good options on the Windows laptop side of the fence in 2020, yet there's hardly any laptop that comes close to Apple's MacBook line up. Only a handful of them get a respectable nod from enthusiasts and the Dell XPS 15 is one of them. Dell's XPS series laptops are often the ones that are looked upon as equals to MacBooks, so we wanted to see if it stands true for the new one that came out in 2020 or tells a different story. Well, we've been using the Dell XPS 15 9500 for the better part of a month now and we can't wait to tell you more about it. Let's begin - Design & Build Quality © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Dell's XPS laptops have been ranking high up on the list of best-looking Windows laptops for years now. That said, we were worried about the design this year because they were beginning to look a bit dated. A bit of a facelift was in order and Dell delivered it with the XPS 15 this year.
Taking a closer look at the laptop, you'll see the laptop is now more compact than ever before, particularly in its width. It's not the lightest laptop in the world but the dimensions are well under the acceptable limits. The lid and the chassis are made out of aluminum and the keyboard deck comes fitted with soft-touch carbon fiber. You'll also notice that the speakers are next to the keyboard on both sides, facing forward. This placement helps push the sound directly towards the user and the result is simply great when compared with the laptops that have down-facing speakers. This is another quality of change that we welcome and the speakers sound excellent, in case you're wondering. They get plenty loud without having to crank all the way up. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Overall, we think the Dell XPS 15 9500 screams quality in a way most Windows laptops fail to do. We love that Dell has still managed to keep it classy here without making any compromises. If you were to buy a Windows laptop purely for the looks, then this is the one.
DisplayYou'd be spending most of the time staring at the display and we're glad that the Dell XPS 15 has probably the best display we've seen on a laptop this year. In fact, the display is one of our favorite things about this laptop. We've been using the variant that has the optional 4K resolution (3,840-by-2,400-pixel) touch panel and boy, has it been a fantastic experience. It's a 15.6-inch panel with super slim bezels around it. The 92-percent screen-to-body ratio will make you instantly fall in love with it. If that's not enough for you then how about the fact that you get to stare at more vertical pixels, thanks to the 16:10 aspect ratio? It makes it look more modern and aesthetically more pleasing to look at. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The panel is incredibly sharp and vibrant to look at. It's rated for HDR 400, and it maxes out at 500 nits of brightness. It also covers 100 percent of the Adobe RGB spectrum and 94 percent of DCI-P3. It's a stunning panel to use and we think it's just perfect for content creators. You can also choose to opt for the full HD non-touchscreen too.
Keyboard & TrackpadThe Dell XPS 15 9500 also has one of the keyboards on a laptop. If you are a writer who appreciates a good keyboard on a laptop, then this will definitely put a smile on your face. The keys have great tactile feedback and the layout is perfect with no odd key placements. It's just a great experience to type on this laptop. The keys are also backlit so you don't have to worry about that either. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The trackpad is also a huge upgrade over any other Windows laptop you've probably used. The sheer size of the trackpad may surprise you at first, but it's definitely one of those things that you can't go back from. It's gigantic, to say the least, but we're not complaining about the space we're getting for smooth scrolls and pans. It uses Windows precision drivers, so they're very reliable too.
Overall, a great keyboard and a trackpad. That, along with the beautiful display will definitely make you happy every time you open the lid and start using it. It just never gets old. PortsWe're not too happy about the ports situation though. Besides an SD card slot and a headphone jack, you only get USB-C ports on this laptop, which is a bit of a bummer. Yes, the future is moving towards USB-Cm, but that future isn't here yet and we still find ourselves bamboozled looking for a USB-A port quite often. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The two on the right side of the laptop include Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort support, whereas the one on the right only offers DisplayPort support. Thankfully, all three of them can be used to charge the laptop. Dell also includes both USB-C to USB-A and USB-C to HDMI adapters in the box, so that a relief.
PerformanceThe variant of the laptop we used for review was armed to the teeth with an Intel Core i7-10750H processor, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and an Nvidia GTX 1650Ti GPU. You can choose between a few RAM and storage options to see which one suits your budget the best. Day-to-day tasks were no big deal for this beast and it handled everything we threw at it like a champ. Windows laptops have gotten better now thanks to the software advancements too, so no complaints there either. We ran benchmarks on this laptop to see the kind of numbers we could get. Well, the XSP 15 didn't disappoint.  © MensXP/Karthik Iyer It scored a respectable score of over 5,000 in PCMark 10, which is higher or on-par with most other similarly-specced Windows laptops on the market. We got a score of around 1,500 in Cinebench 15 which is higher than what we got on the MacBook (around 1,300). We were also able to run all popular photo and video editing tools on this machine without any hiccups.
The Dell XPS 15 9500, though it has great internals, is not a gaming laptop, so we don't recommend pushing it to the limits with resource-intensive AAA titles. It can run all the popular titles like Apex Legends, Valorant, Fall Guys, etc., with ease. But again, it's not a gaming laptop so you need to keep an eye on thermals as they're nowhere close to the sophisticated ones found on gaming laptops. Battery LifeThe Dell XPS 15 9500 comes packed with an 86WHr, which was surprisingly good. Though it doesn't measure up to the competitors, it was respectable for a device with a 4K panel running constantly at 75-percent brightness at any given point. The laptop should comfortably get you through a full day provided that you're not pushing the envelope. Of course, things like video/photo editing, gaming, or pretty much anything that gets the core kick-in will consume more battery power, but we don't think you should be doing any resource-intensive work without holding hands with the charger. The Final SayDell's XPS line up has given us some of the best Windows laptops in the past and we're glad that the XPS 15 9500 will carry that torch hereon. Simply put, the Dell XPS 15 9500 is the best version of a laptop that was already amongst the best in the market. You get what we think is one of the most beautiful laptops on the market with some powerful internals. The display is just oh-so-good to look at and it gets a solid recommendation from us for that alone. Honestly, there are no major downsides here except for maybe the price. Coming in at over Rs 2 Lakh, the Dell XPS 15 9500 is surely going to put a deep hole in your pocket. But the XPS 15 9500 will fill that by delivering a great experience and by putting a smile on your face every time you open that lid. It's one of the best laptops we've used this year.

Insane James Bond Bike Stunt Required Coke Worth Rs 50 Lakhs Because It Was No Time To Slip & Die

Making an action movie, obviously, costs a massive amount of money, especially, if it's a freaking James Bond movie. But, I've never heard of a movie production having a substantial coke budget. No, not that coke. Reportedly, to perfect a bike stunt scene in the upcoming Bond flick No Time To Die, almost 32,000 litres of Coca Cola was used and yet, no one drank a single drop of that. Basically, the scene had Daniel Craig on a bike on the cobbled street of Matera in southern Italy. To make the road more sticky and safer to actually drive a bike, the aforementioned outrageous amount of coke was sprayed all over. The added bonus was that the coke left the streets looking cleaner than before. Well, we all know coke is the best thing to clean stuff, apparently. © Universal Pictures However, the thought of producers of the movie spending $71,000, or over Rs 50 lakh, on just coke is pretty hilarious, but also extremely wasteful. To put things in perspective, the bike in the scene cost less than one third the amount spent on coke. Hmm.
Triumph Scrambler 1200 Bond edition is worth $18,500, and well, that's basically nothing compared to the $71k. © Universal Pictures Stunt head Lee Morrison, the man behind the bizarre idea, said, "I spent nearly €60,000 spraying Coca-Cola around Matera. I’ve been spraying Coca-Cola on slippery surfaces for a very long time."
Well, it's great that the coke did the trick because performing a bike stunt really is no time to die.

4 Timeless Lessons Every Millennial Continues To Learn From ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’

“Jaa simran jaa, jee le apni zindagi”, "Bade bade deshon mein, aisi chhoti chotti baatein hoti rehti hai Senorita”. These are just some of the many one-liners our brains have registered over the years, courtesy the ageless magic and the cultural impact that a certain blockbuster managed to create. The timeless appeal and the charisma of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge continues to live on, much long after the perennial hit celebrated 25 years of its golden existence.
So what is it about Raj and Simran’s love story that has managed to pass itself down, from generation to generation and continues to make everyone watch it every time it is on TV? Here are some timeless lessons that every millennial can learn from this NRI model romance: 1. Utopian Love Doesn’t Always WinRaj’s love for Simran, his lack of expressing it even once on that Europe tour, Simran’s attraction to him and her acceptance of the fact that everything they shared amongst them, all those moments, that was love for these two characters. While in a Utopian world, this kind of Shakespearean romance is all one would want, the reality is that for most Indians, family acceptance and marriage go hand in hand. The movie reminds us that while fighting for love is important, having a reality check of your situation is also crucial. Not everyone can chase a Simran to India like Raj. Use social media, connect before you disappear. © Yash Raj Films
2. Importance Of Chasing Your FreedomOn one hand, we have Simran being the perfect daughter who is weaved in the patriarchal system and is aware that a scripted fate awaits her and is somewhere trying to make peace with it. She tries to bargain for her freedom from ‘Bauji’ as she cajoles him to let her go on one last voyage before he gets her married to a stranger back home. On the other hand, we’ve got Raj who epitomises the ‘spoilt brat’ image and mirrors the callousness that is often attached to the clichéd image of rich NRI kids. Anyway, both of them, in their own way, chase and fight for their freedom. Be it opposing the views of your parents, or yearning for them to understand your perspective, freedom is a choice we have to make for ourselves. © Yash Raj Films
3. Defining Your Own MoralityThe movie emphasizes the importance of family values, morals and loving your parents to the point that you got to agree & fulfil all their wishes. The projection of this idea is wonderful but in 2020, as we continue being the ‘woke’ generation, please don’t embrace any disrespect towards the people who love you the most, but also draw your own line of ‘morality'. Have a mind of your own, turn disagreements into discussions but build your own value chart that is not burdened with generational trauma. © Yash Raj Films
4. Love DeeplyIt’s a love story, right? So it’s meant to preach this message. Love one another, love yourself enough to allow good things to happen to you, love your parents, love your family. Above all, trust the process. The movie shows how some situations are not the best in life, but someone always comes through, offering advice, offering their love, which will help you sail through it all. Be it Raj’s father who leaves everything to be his wingman, or Simran’s mother, who is aware of the price she will have to pay if her daughter elopes with the lover, or be it everyone’s favourite ‘Bauji’ who wins every heart with ‘Ja Simran, jee le apni zindagi’, the movie is a stark reminder that love is a process that needs to be instilled and practised with care and determination. © Yash Raj Films

63YO Anil Kapoor Drops A Masterclass On How To Take Right Swipe-Worthy Shirtless Photos

Seriously man, how does Anil Kapoor manage to look so young, day and day out?  Just take a look at his contemporaries, and you’ll see that at times it seems that the man hasn’t aged a single day ever since he turned 35. © Instagram/anilskapoor Just a few weeks ago, he posted a few pictures on Instagram, showing his biceps off, which went viral on the Internet. Honestly, it wouldn’t be farfetched to say that he definitely put most 30-year-old men to shame. © Instagram/anilskapoor And if that wasn’t enough, he is now seen to be working out at a beach in Alibaug.
View this post on InstagramDuring the lockdown I was dreaming about the beach...dreaming of escaping...finally I get to the beach and my trainer @marcyogimead, makes me sprint...fitness always comes first...It’s not about the location but about the dedication... 📸 @marcyogimeadA post shared by (@anilskapoor) Well, now, he has dropped a rather tasteful masterclass on how to pose for and take elegant, but drool-worthy shirtless photos. © Instagram/anilskapoor First of all, there is the whole manscaping bit. Although we strongly believe that men ought to accept their body hair as it is, we also support it, if someone chooses to get rid of it, as long as it is done in a healthy manner.  
Then there is the backdrop of the photos. A clean, sandy beach, without any people or pesky hawkers in the background, with a part of the sea in the background, making waves, is just perfect.  © Instagram/anilskapoor And then, of course, you ought to have the obligatory photograph, inside the pool.  
Now, it may seem to be a cliche, at times if you pose in a very cheesy way, it is, but this is far better than those shirtless selfies people click at the gym, trying to pop a vein. © Instagram/anilskapoor Say what you will about the man, but it seems like he has an endless supply of the elixir of youth.  
In all seriousness though, if we manage to look this good, and are somehow this fit when we cross 60, it will be nothing short of a miracle.

Man Utd Unearth New Heroes In Axel Tuanzebe & Alex Telles During Their Miracle In Paris

While their rivals have been making merry, Manchester United has struggled to find their elusive form and even match-winning players in a painful era post Sir Alex Ferguson's trophy-laden reign. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been trying his best to bring the days of glory back to the hallowed Old Trafford, but it has undeniably proved to be an uphill battle. But, on 21st October, neither their past performances nor the lack of match-winners in their squad mattered, as Manchester United turned the clock back with a spirited performance against much-stronger rivals Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stage clash.  Taking on one of Europe's biggest clubs, the Red Devils left everyone shell-shocked with a thrilling 2-1 win at Parc des Princes. © Reuters Solskjaer's men had taken a first-half lead following a Bruno Fernandes penalty. But, it looked like PSG would escape with a draw despite a poor performance when Anthony Martial headed a Neymar corner into his own net 10 minutes into the second half. In the end, Marcus Rashford, who had also scored a winner against PSG in 2019, once again stepped up to the task and slotted home the deciding goal in the 87th minute.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - tactically outplayed PSG away in the Champions League yet you’ll still hear people repeating the phrase “he has no tactics” that they’ve read from someone on the internet. — Jack (@UnitedHeaven_) October 20, 2020 For a team that had nowhere to hide following their embarrassing 6-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, United's result was a much-needed result for their distraught fans. From Solksjaer's tactics to Rashford's winner, the match had many positives for United. But, there were only two names, Axel Tuanzebe and Alex Telles, on the lips of Man Utd fans who're seen singing their praise. We finally have someone that can cross a ball, Telles you beauty 🇧🇷 — Aidan Walsh (@AidanWalshMUFC) October 20, 2020Tuanzebe is so clear of every other defender we have it’s not even close — Moe (@MoeThe6th) October 20, 2020Deploying a more defensive 5-3-2 formation to contain the attacking threat of PSG, Solskjaer handed their Deadline-Day signing Telles his debut on the left and academy graduate Tuanzebe his first senior start in 10 months to play with Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof in a three-man central defence. Both Axel and Alex couldn't have asked for a tougher assignment, but, contrary to popular perception, the performance of the Man Utd duo was nothing short of impressive. While the England defender impressed everyone with his defensive abilities that allowed him to successfully contain the PSG top three, his Brazilian teammate was lauded for his accurate crosses. Mental that Tuanzebe hasn’t played a game since Colchester in the League Cup last December because of injury and he’s not looked out of place tonight against PSG! — Ryan Jones (@RyJones93) October 20, 2020 Quick on his feet and physically strong, Tuanzebe has the right attributes of a top defender. But, it's his inability to stay fit that has worked against him in the past. But, in Paris, a fully-fit Tuanzebe looked in ominous form. © Reuters On a couple of occasions, the 22-year-old was left one on one with Kylian Mbappe but he stood up against the French star, dispossessing him of the ball without going to ground. He won 100 per cent of his aerial duels, had a 92 per cent pass accuracy and made seven clearances (more than any other United player in the game).
these Telles crosses my word we might have the Brazilian Beckham — ‘ (@vintageredss) October 20, 2020 While Tuanzebe impressed in defence, Telles had a debut to remember against PSG. The left-back's technical ability showed that he can cross the ball with pinpoint accuracy - something United has missed dearly in the past. He ended the night with most crosses (eight) and created more chances (three) than anyone else on the pitch © Reuters He took a couple of excellent corners in the first-half and then followed it up with some menacing crosses in the box after half-time. In Telles, United have a player who'll not only bust a gut to make those overlap runs but also aid his teammates with solidity in defence.
Placed in a difficult group, United will now face Rb Leipzig at home next week, with the German side looking dangerous following their 2-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir. After that Solskjaer's men will find themselves bracing for a double-header against the Turkish champions before hosting PSG in December.

Swara Bhasker Gets Trolled For Criticising Shah Rukh Khan’s Raj From 'DDLJ'

Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge completed 25 years yesterday and people celebrated the day as the nation's favourite jodi Raj and Simran continue enjoying a cult following, 25 years on. Just like many others, Swara Bhasker took to Twitter to share some photos of Shah Rukh Khan’s character Raj and wrote, “Find a guy who looks at you the way Raj looks at Simran!!!! #DDLJ25.”Find a guy who looks at you the way Raj looks at Simran!!!! #DDLJ25 ⁦ pic.twitter.com/49PrSmVF1J — Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) October 20, 2020 Soon, a Twitter user reminded her of how problematic Raj was. He wrote,  ‘Raj does the following to Simran: 1. Lie that he raped her as a joke. 2. Tears her clothes in public (accidentally, but who pulls a woman by the back of her dress anyway?) 3. Forces her to dance, and in the process gropes her and feels up her bareback Why do women love creeps?”Replying to the same, she too criticized Shah Rukh Khan’s character in the film. In her tweet, she wrote,  “Sadly u r are right.. I mean about what all Raj does. This is precisely the power of #Bollywood, right? It makes stalking seem romantic. And we all are influenced by it - sometimes in the form of nostalgia & sometimes despite our own best intentions. We all need to learn & change.”Sadly u r are right.. I mean abt what all Raj does.. This is precisely the power of #Bollywood right? It makes stalking seem romantic. And we all are influenced by it - sometimes in the form of nostalgia & sometimes despite our own best intent. We all need to learn & change :) :) https://t.co/LTXIDMz3NP — Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) October 20, 2020 Well, we do agree with the fact that we have been idolizing Raj for all the wrong reasons and the film did promote stalking and managed to send out quite a few wrong messages. Unfortunately, however, Swara was trending by the next morning for calling out Raj from DDLJ and people started to troll her opinion. Ha penchow...... Movie mat banao... Bas Bhagwat Gita ka path karate raho TV per aur Theatre mein.. bahut gyaan milega sbko... Movie ko movie rhne do. Do not think that movie is for some higher purpose and u are part of it — Batman, Who Laughs (@patriotjoker27) October 20, 2020Thats what u took ?? I saw Raj as someone who was willing to win over her entire family , because he loved her . He helped the ladies of the house in the kitchen , serving and fasted with kajol , respect for elders , had an amazing relationship with his father . RAj we love . — Niharika (@NiharikaB25) October 21, 2020Disagree with u @ReallySwara..adolescence romances dont start with swipe left/swipe right..there’s hell n heaven difference between stalking & being cupid stuck..
Moral- 2 be “Raj” 1 have to love & respect d girl & her wishes till d very end..society need 2 teach dat 2 their men. — Voice Of Reason (@Voice_OfReason) October 21, 2020U mean u r influencing all women for use of fingers by your b grade movies — shashwat prakash (@shashwat0504) October 20, 2020But how he grows n love makes him so matured . Sigh . Growth ! Criticising a legend of a movie sigh ... Not right — Niharika (@NiharikaB25) October 21, 2020To each his own, perhaps. Do you also agree with Swara or do you think the people who trolled her are right?

There's A Pakistani Version Of 'Money Heist' & It’s So Bad That Even Pakistani Folks Are Cringing

While Indian people were busy debating who would play all the characters in a Hindi remake of Money Heist and wondering if Shah Rukh Khan would actually play the professor or not, Pakistan has gone ahead and actually made their own version of the show. © Netflix Yes, a lot of popular shows are remade in different countries and the results are almost always disastrous, and yet, people have not learned the lesson that it's not okay to copy, especially when it's turning out to be extremely cringey.
© Twitter I mean, look at the Pakistani Money Heist copy called 50 Crores, an action movie with an uncanny resemblance to the hit Spanish show.
#50crore #action #ComingSoon #aijazaslam pic.twitter.com/GwGKtGkLhp — aijaz aslam (@aijazz7) October 18, 2020 Hmm. An another action film is here, titled as '50 CRORE'. The cast includes Faisal Qureshi, Aijaz Aslam, Asad Siddiqui, Mehmood Aslam, Saboor Ali, Faryal Mehmood, Zhalay Sarhadi, Noman Habib, Naveed Raza, Omer Shehzad & Anoushey Abbasi. #Lollywood #50Crore @aijazz7 @faysalquraishi pic.twitter.com/jsOc7RaHHd — Lollywood🇵🇰 Movies (@Real_Lollywood) October 19, 2020 Of course, it started getting roasted online and rightfully so.

Shivan & Narresh Talk About 'Wilding20s' & How The Pandemic Has Changed The Way We Consume Fashion

Shivan and Narresh, for their 10-year anniversary, showcased their collection Wilding20s yesterday.  Earlier, scheduled in March, the launch of the collection was postponed as the country was put under the lockdown amid the Coronavirus crisis.  Now, changing the format of the show entirely and going digital for the first time, the resortwear luxury label set their show amid the rocky lakes of the Aravallis. The collection showcased 5 prints (represented by the 5 Iconodots of the label's logo), namely Gardenia, Oriri, Nebulous, Dame, and Camo Heart.    © Shivan and Narresh We caught up with the designer duo to better understand how they organised this show and what challenges they faced.
1. The pandemic delayed your ten-year anniversary show which was originally scheduled in March. Have you altered the collection in response to the pandemic? © Shivan and Narresh It (the pandemic) changed everything, from the way things were done and the way we felt about everything. We have worked on the entire thing again. There is a drastic difference between the illustrations that were planned for the original show in March and the one that is taking place now. We have really simplified the show now.
I think before the pandemic really hit us in March, like the rest of the world, we too were consumed with the consumerism of the fashion industry. Earlier it was defined by a lot of excessivenesses. However, in the pandemic, we just felt a lot more lighter in relaxed silhouettes. This, made us change the collection completely.  This collection is completely refined, and completely wearable when you are on a holiday. It is generally a more ready-to-wear collection.  View this post on Instagram#WILDING20s ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #ShivanAndNarresh #10thAnniversaryShow #Oriri #Swimwear #ResortWearA post shared by (@shivanandnarresh)2. What precautions have you taken for the show? What was the process of organising it and dealing with COVID-19 restrictions? There are both positives and negatives that come with organising a show in the middle of the pandemic.  Getting 50 people to a location, getting them tested, making sure that they all reach on time. Shooting when a crowd of over 1000 people is watching us, the locals had gathered around, and we had to handle the crowd as well. Figuring out the technology and making sure it ran smoothly on the internet, were all things that were incredibly taxing. On the plus side, digitising fashion makes it very democratic. We're now able to reach out to so many more people than a physical show would have made possible. If it reaches that many people, they also get to see our dream and vision.  View this post on Instagram#WILDING20s ⁣ ⁣ Stemming from the Latin word ‘origin’, the genesis of existence is constructed with a stirring blend of colors in Oriri, namely a syrupy Rouge, musky Fern, and sombre Haemo. A vibrant reimagination of the building blocks of life - the foundation of a single cell binds human evolution; the print is a textural amalgamation of whimsical yet chromatic undertones.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #ShivanAndNarresh #10thAnniversaryShow #Swimwear #ResortwearA post shared by (@shivanandnarresh)3. You have displayed iconograms this time for your show? What do each of them represent?  © Shivan and Narresh The iconograms have been with the brand for ten years. We felt like it was time to show off all five animals together. 
With this show, we're showcasing all 5 holiday lifestyles which include the snail which represents the beach, the peacock represents resort wear, the dolphin represents the cruise, the elephant represents a safari and a reindeer represents the ski. We're also showing all 5 collections with this show. 6. In the last 6 months, there has been growing debate about luxury face masks, however, considering it is a crucial part of the 'new normal', what was the idea behind the conceptualisation of your line of masks? © Shivan and Narresh When this pandemic happened, we were the first ones to launch the designer masks here. 
For us, the economic argument played precedence. We felt that we needed to take care of our workers and continuing to employ them meant producing what was needed in the market.  In order to ensure that their livelihoods were taken care of in these tough times, we decided that if the only category of clothing being purchased online was masks, we had to endorse it.  © Shivan and Narresh Fashion is always the first industry to adapt to changing times. Fashion designers adapting to a new product line which the world wanted, was only natural in these changing times. 
Within the first few hours of going online with the face masks, we were selling them like crazy. In the pandemic that is here to stay till the time the vaccine is out, the mask is the new t-shirt of today. It's going to exist at all price points from Rs 20 to Rs 20,000. We're catering to the market that was anyway buying our products.  © Shivan and Narresh 7. You introduced Menswear for your brand in 2016. How has the market changed since then for men? Are men more open to experimenting than before?
We started out menswear only because we knew it would be a guilty purchase category at the beginning for us. Women would splurge lakhs on resort wear and we would constantly get asked about a collection for their significant others.  Initially, we started off with swim shorts and polos for men. It became a kind of a guilty buy for women that if they're shopping anyway, they might as well shop for the men in the family as well. But within three months, we had men coming to the store asking for options in polos, varying styles in swimwear, asking for looser silhouettes, espadrilles, trousers, towels, and even accessories.  Indian men are evidently not as conservative as we make them believe. In fact, their category is far stronger, as men in our experience have been extreme loyalists to our brand.  Our repeat customers, in terms of men, have been so much higher. Once they buy a particular type of polo then they want the same in other colours as well and so it goes on.  © Shivan and Narresh 8. How do you think the industry as a whole is dealing with the issue of sustainable and 'eco-friendly' fashion, especially this year when there is a growing use of plastic this year?
The fashion industry is being affected in a huge way. Customers now care where the clothes that they buy are coming from, who is making them, and what will they do with it once they've worn it.  This sort of awareness is cornering designers and brands to have a sustainability discourse that examines everything. From the chemicals that are used for dyeing fabrics, if they are harmful to the environment, to the number of collections that designers make in a year.  There's no reason today to only make collections that are for editorials. All these arguments are simplifying fashion. They're making sure that if we make a collection, the edit is much smaller. Capsule and ready-to-wear collections are becoming more prevalent.  It's completely rewiring the way our industry works and I feel like it was a much-needed change.

People Are Now Demanding The Release Of Vibhor Anand, Who Was Arrested In SSR Death Case

In actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s case related to his sudden and unexpected death, several angles have come to the limelight, including fake theories and false claims too by people on social media. © Twitter In that context, on Thursday, the cyber cell of Mumbai Police arrested a Delhi resident, identified as one Vibhor Anand, for allegedly spreading misinformation and levelling false claims around the deaths of Sushant Singh and the latter's former manager Disha Salian.
© BCCL Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14, 2020, and the CBI probe into his death case is still going on.
Who Is Vibhor Anand? © Twitter Vibhor Anand claims to be a lawyer (also a former pilot and self-styled aviation expert) by profession and has apparently had an unsettled past on the internet. From making sensational allegations on certain popular Bollywood actors and political bigwigs to dropping provocational statements regarding the 2012 Delhi gang rape and murder (Nirbhaya case), Anand has left no stone unturned in stirring controversy on the micro-blogging site. 
Recently, a Reddit user posted about Vibhor's profile. A post on Reddit's r/BollyBlinds community by u/BornJinx, which has now gone viral, elaborates a take on the backstory behind the internet notoriety of this self-proclaimed “lawyer”. Here’s What The Reddit Thread Says"Mr Anand has an interesting past: in 2012 he was calling Modi a murderer, but now calls himself deluded. Then he claimed that he fought for the Nirbhaya rapists for legal reasons and then lately claims that the girl's boyfriend who was also beaten up was the"biggest villain" and part of the rape. But "Delhi Police" was "helpless" and so they let him off.” Why Was He Arrested?Vibhor Anand was arrested from Delhi for allegedly spreading fake conspiracy theories in connection with the deaths of Sushant Singh Rajput and talent manager Disha Salian. The FIR was registered with the police in August this year after he allegedly posted three YouTube videos in which he was making defamatory statements and allegations against the Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray, along with the state home home minister Anil Deshmukh.  Why Is #ReleaseVibhorAnand Trending?Now many people on Twitter are demanding his release in relation to this case. Although, Anand's Twitter account remains suspended now and is the reason why some of his more ill-famed posts remain inaccessible to the common people.  Here’s What People Are Posting On TwitterVibhor Anand is in Judicial Custody and None can meet with him till ,23rd October. His life could be in DANGER and father is very SCARED as he apprehended the possible end of Life to Vibhor !

@vibhor_anand pic.twitter.com/ugk94BT5UE — Raj Patil (@raj_rvp) October 3, 2020 What Is Vibhor Anand's 'India Against Biased Media' (IABM) All About?In 2018, Vibhor launched a group called 'India Against Biased Media' (IABM), in a bid to "counter the rampant menace of Fake and Biased Media reporting in India." In its crowdfunding campaign ad, Anand stated, "Since its inception, IABM has filed over 100 criminal cases across India against actress Swara Bhaskar, Dhruv Rathee, Sagarika Ghose, Shekhar Gupta, Aroon Purie, Barkha Dutt, Shehla Rashid, Rana Ayub, etc. collectively for spreading Fake and Biased News. And all these cases would soon reach courts for logical conclusion." In relation to this, High Court lawyer Abhinav Chandrachud, as quoted by a report, went on record two years ago to agree that IABM was trying to "silence dissent with the threat of harassment." Vibhor Anand has been booked for defamation along with other charges under the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology act, as per the reports.

8 Real Cops Who’re Giving Singhams & Simmbas A Run For Their Money With Their Style

Say what you will about our film industries, but the one thing that they do get right most of the times, is making cop films very interesting, whether you speak of Rohit Shetty’s cop universe, or any other film. It's as if they have perfected the formula for making films, based on the police.
© Reliance Entertainment Believe it or not though, as good as those films are, and as stylish as the actors playing those cops can be, they don't hold a candle to the people who are cops in real life. Heck, some of these cops should act in their own films.
© Instagram/sachinatulkar_ips Here are a few real-life cops, who are giving all the Singhams and Simmbas of Indian cinema, a good and hard run for their money through their style.
1. Sachin Atulkar © Instagram/sachinatulkar_ips Often dubbed as the most handsome cop in India, Sachin Atulkar is an IPS officer, who is currently posted in Madhya Pradesh. Apart from being one of the fittest cops in India, he is also one of the most impeccably dressed ones, with an amazingly sharp sense of style.
2. Naveen Kumar © facebook/naveen.kumar Naveen Kumar won the title of Mr Haryana in 2013, so that should tell you just how ripped the man is. He is currently with the Haryana Police, and is currently a senior sub-inspector. 
3. Tejender Singh © facebook/tejendersingh Tejinder Singh was already a renowned bodybuilder in Punjab and Uttarakhand before he joined Uttarakhand Police in 2006. He is considered to be of the fittest policemen in India and has set many fitness records for the police, at a national level. 
4. Motilal Dayma © facebook/motilaldayma Motilal Dayma is with the Madhya Pradesh Police force as a constable today, but that wasn’t his plan. Initially, he wanted to join the army and had started preparing for the fitness rounds for the NDA. However, he decided that he would be able to serve his country better, by joining the MP police force. He is currently posted in Indore.
5. Kishor Dange © facebook/kishoredange Currently a constable with the Maharashtra Police, and based in Jalna, near Aurangabad, Kishor Dange has often been called the Arnold Schwarzenegger of the Indian Police. Dange too holds a number of national records in fitness and strength tests for the police and has won a number of titles, including Mr Maharashtra, and Mr Marathwada. 
6. Rubal Dhankar © Instagram/rubaldhankar Rubal Dhankar had a brief stint with reality television before he joined the Delhi Police as a constable. He has been a fitness model for a number of years prior to his stint in reality television and continues to be a major fitness influencer on social media platforms.
7. Baldev Singh © Facebook/baldevsingh 52-year-old Baldev Singh is an SHO with the Chandigarh Police and has represented India in a number of international bodybuilding competitions, including the Asian Body Building & Physique Sports Championship and the 11th World Body Building & Physique Sports Championship. He is an antithesis to the notion that only young, under-30 cops are fit, and truly is an inspiration for a number of people.
8. Deepak Sharma © Instagram/deepaksharma_jailor Finally, we have Deepak Sharma, a jailor at the Tihar prison in Delhi. His transformation from a skinny fellow, weighing just 60 Kgs, to a chiselled mass of pure muscle, weighing 90 kgs, is truly inspiring. So inspiring, in fact, that criminals that are under his charge at Tihar, often take fitness tips from him.

People Are Convinced PM Modi Addressed The Country Today Mainly To Flaunt His ‘Quarantine Beard’

When the news dropped today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was going to address the nation at 6 pm, everyone was bracing themselves for something super serious, but it's fine people, we don't have demonetization-level news today.  PM Modi basically gave an update, of sorts, with no big bombs dropping and just updated the people about the pandemic situation we have going on.  He talked about how India is doing pretty well in handling COVID-19 compared to countries like Brazil and the USA and assured citizens that the government is working on the vaccine. Sharing a message with my fellow Indians. https://t.co/tNsiPuEUP3 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 20, 2020 But, the main reason people believe that the national address happened was so that PM Modi could also get a chance to show off his quarantine beard. © Twitter/PM Modi No shave November? Nope, this year has been 'No Shave 2020' and everyone is participating, because well, who's thinking about shaving when there is a freaking pandemic going on and everyone's lives are turned upside down? And, from the looks of it, PM Modi has also hopped on the trend.

6 Child Actors Who Grew Up In The Public Eye & Became Legit Style Icons In Their Own Right

We have had a plethora of people who started out with their acting careers pretty early in life, and then continued to entertain us with their films, and impress us with their style.  There is Kunal Kemmu, Aftab Shivdasani, Imran Khan and Kamal Haasan, for example, all of whom started acting, before they were 10.  © BCCL The thing is though, even though they did make their debuts at an early age, most child actors take some sort of a hiatus, and disappear from the public eye for some time, before resuming their filmmaking careers.
© Facebook/ActorImranKhan These 6 child actors, however, never disappeared from the public eye. Sure, they may not have acted in films for ages now, but you can still see them pop up in TV commercials, OTT series, or YouTube videos, every now and then.
Here are 6 child actors who grew up to be legit style icons: 1. Darsheel Safary © Instagram/dsafary Darsheel Safary had a debut that people can only dream of, in 2007. 
Since then, he has acted in a few movies and a few YouTube sketches, and music videos. Mostly though, he has stayed away from the big screen.  He now has grown up to be a proper style icon, who has a dope sense of fashion. 2. Siddharth Nigam © Instagram/thesiddharthnigam Now 20, Siddharth started out with a TV commercial, before making his debut in Dhoom 3, as a young Aamir Khan. 
Since then, he has gone on to work in a number of television shows. In a few of these shows, he also played the male lead. He has a very vocal fan following on Instagram, all thanks to his sense of style. 3. Abhishek Sharma © Instagram/abhisheksharma_4 Remember Hrithik Roshan’s brother from Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai? Well, that’s Abhishek Sharma, who has grown up to be a model and a television star. 
Apart from that, he is also seen in a number of minor roles in cinemas. Given that he is an established model, and has often been a part of print and television ad campaigns, it is safe to say that he knows his style. 4. Athit Naik © Instagram/athitnaik Athit Naik was a part of a number of really good films, which included the likes of Kal Ho Naa Ho. He was also the lead actor in a number of movies that were centred around kids.  
Now, though, he prefers to be behind the camera and is learning the ropes of filmmaking. Take a look at his Instagram profile, and you’ll see, just how good his sense of style is. 5. Jibraan Khan © Instagram/jibraan.khan Another child actor who has taken up directing instead of acting, is Jibran Khan, the boy who played a son to Shah Rukh Khan & Kajol in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. 
As of late, he has been working as an assistant director to Ayan Mukerji, & reportedly, to Karan Johar as well.  6. Ali Haji © Instagram/iamalihaji As a child, Ali Haji was seen in films like Fanaa, Partner and family. After a brief hiatus, during which he was focussing on his studies, he resumed acting and worked in a number of sketches, and TV shows. 
He was last seen in Super 30 opposite Hrithik Roshan. Just take a quick scroll through his Instagram profile, and you’ll see a number of really tasteful and yet, hip-looking outfits.

Pixel 4a Review: Camera So Good That It Puts The Flagship Smartphones To Shame Very Easily

What makes a smartphone great? Is it the performance? Its build quality or it's the ability to take incredible pictures? Usually, you would settle for one of these features but what if I told you can get all of them in one phone that doesn't cost a lot? Don't believe me? The Pixel 4a is here to prove you wrong. We've been using the phone for a week to play some casual games, browse the Internet and click photos; a lot of photos. It was by far our favourite thing to do with the Pixel 4a and here's what we think about the recently launched smartphone. Design And Display  When you look at the Pixel 4a, you won't find any flashy design or a glossy back that most smartphones have started to adopt in 2020. Instead, you will find a design that looks like it came out of the German art school 'Bauhaus'. The bezels have been slimmed down considerably, the camera sensor is on the top right corner and it's got that polycarbonate finish that hides smudge and fingerprints.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Pixel 4a is not particularly big as compared to any recent smartphone launched in the past three years and only comes in black. The phone measures around 5.7 (h) by 2.7 (w) by 0.3 inches (d) which makes it one the smallest and thinnest smartphones of the year. The smartphone can fit in almost every hand and feels kind of cute to operate. The back of the phone borrows the design from the Pixel 4 including the square camera module. However, it only houses one sensor. There's also a fingerprint sensor at the back that lands perfectly on your index finger when using the smartphone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The smartphone also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB-C port for charging. The left side of the phone has a distinct mint colour power button and the volume rocker. The design is quite standard here apart from the fact that it doesn't have any water and dust resistance.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Pixel 4a has a 5.81-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,340 by 1,080 pixels and 443ppi density. The display is easy to use in closed environments; however, the brightness could be better as it gets particularly hard to read the text under sunlight. We also noticed some issues with the auto-brightness feature as some of the shifts were too aggressive and not appropriate to the environment we were in. We instead chose to use the brightness slider manually.  The display on the Pixel 4a is decent overall; however, we did notice a slight blue hue and colour than what we're used to with OLED displays in general. Having said that, the pixel density of the display is quite impressive and is a dream to watch video content in general. Camera  The marquee feature on the Pixel 4a is its photography capabilities, thanks to Google's computational photography algorithm. While it uses the same 12.2 MP Sony IMX 363 that was used in Pixel 3; Google's computational photography makes it one of the best camera smartphones to own in 2020.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We tested the camera in multiple lighting conditions and we have to say that phone did not falter in delivering great results. The algorithm gets the colours right most of the time. However, you will notice a bit of oversaturation after the image has been processed. In good lighting conditions, the Pixel 4a can take some incredible shots, especially when capturing portrait images. The portrait mode worked incredibly well on my hairy dogs and even objects. Many phones can't do portrait shots of objects well but the Pixel 4a delivered every single time. Sure, sometimes it can get the details wrong since it isn't perfect; but we would pick the Pixel 4a's portrait mode over the iPhone 11 Pro and Samsung Galaxy devices any day. If you want a comparison with OnePlus phones, let's say it's not even worth doing because the recently launched OnePlus 8T doesn't even come close in almost every photography mode.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Pixel 4a can even take some incredible night mode shots with its Night Sight feature. The phone excels in this department. When you are clicking a night-mode image from the Pixel 4a; you will find a lot of grain, noise and light flare which disappears after the Pixel 4a is done doing its magic. Check out some of our camera samples below to get a better idea about Pixel 4a's photography capabilities: Performance  The Pixel 4a is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 730G chipset and has been coupled with 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. In our usage, the overall performance was quite impressive, although there were a few jitters when opening apps. However, that was quite rare and even when it happened it wouldn't hinder your overall experience. The smartphone also comes with 128GB of internal storage and cannot be expanded since it doesn't come with a MicroSD slot.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The other time you will notice some delay is when you click images on the smartphone. Expectedly, it takes a tad bit longer to process the image in the gallery which we weren't bothered by since the final result was quite impressive. In terms of gaming, the Pixel 4a performs on the same level as smartphones priced at the same category. We didn't notice any problems while playing Asphalt 8. However, with games with large environments such as Genshin Impact, we did notice some frame drops when the world was populated with multiple enemies. The chipset yielded a score of 469 (single-core) and 1179 (multi-core) in our Geekbench 5 benchmark test.  The Pixel 4a has a 3,140 mAh battery that can be fast-charged using the supplied PD-charger or any other power delivery adapter. The smartphone can last longer than you would expect it to. We streamed video content in full HD on Netflix and it lasted about 7.5 hours on a single charge at full brightness. That's quite impressive given the size of the phone and it's battery. However, it's not the best when compared to the other options available in a similar price range.  Software  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Pixel 4a ships with Android 11 out of the box and it delivers the pure Android experience Pixel smartphones are known for. Having said that, OEMs have spoilt Indian smartphone users with features that might make the Pixel 4a seem bland. Having said that, you get all the improvements Android 11 offers on the Pixel 4a and will keep getting the latest updates by Google for the next three years. The most loveable features on the Pixel 4a are the Android 11 features such as live captioning, voice note captioning and better texting experiences via the messages app. Live Captions comes most handy when you are listening to podcasts or watching videos and even phone calls. As of now it only works for the English language but we expect Google to add other languages soon.  The Final Say  If you're looking for a smartphone that can take incredible photos, isn't too big and gets all of Android's latest updates; then the Pixel 4a is a great option to consider. We particularly like the photography features and its performance that even puts 2020 flagship phones to shame. The Pixel 4a comes with Google's unparalleled image processing capabilities that nobody has been able to match yet. For Rs 29,999, you simply can't pass up this great smartphone.

Arjun Kapoor Stepped Out In His Signature Outfit- A Hoodie Worth Rs 36K & A Mask Worth Rs 1K

Kapoor's signature style consists of oversized hoodies and classic suits and now that Winters are on the way, we will be seeing more of his signature looks soon.  Apart from his signature style, the actor also keeps experimenting with risqué silhouettes from time to time. A big part of this is his collection of iconic sneaker silhouettes, which he sports from time to time.  © Viral Bhayani However, this year, amid the pandemic, as we're in the middle of Unlock 5, Arjun Kapoor too is keeping his style low-key like his contemporary actors. 
This essentially means he's now sticking to basic, wearable, and functional outfits that also happen to be extremely relatable for his followers.  © Viral Bhayani With three films underway in production at this point, Arjun Kapoor has a busy schedule once again. He is currently working on films like Kaneda, Bhoot Police, and Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. 
Unlike the pre-pandemic times, now stepping out is a completely different experience for everyone. Arjun Kapoor too, having fallen sick once, is taking all the necessary precautions seriously. Recently, he stepped out in a colour-block outfit that we loved.  Take a look at his outfit here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani He was seen wearing a bright blue hoodie by Palm Angels for 495 Dollars which comes down to Rs 36,000 approximately. 
He paired the versatile hoodie with a pair of black jeans and neon orange sliders. He also completed the look with a mask from Adidas worth Rs 999.  Evidently, Arjun Kapoor knows how to turn around a basic outfit with simple tricks like colour blocking. This regular outfit does become a lot better with the mix of colours that Arjun Kapoor has simply thrown in.  © Viral Bhayani This is not the first time that Arjun has decided on a specific theme for his outfit. Last week, he stepped out in a 'nocturnal' themed outfit which was also a big hit. 
We hope to see more of such themes in his outfits soon.

Shah Rukh Khan To Begin Shooting For YRF's 'Pathan' After 2 Years & Here's What We Know

Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s 2018 film, Zero. The film didn’t do well at the box office and the actor hasn’t shot for any other film since the release of Zero two years ago. 
© Red Chillies Entertainment However, fans can rejoice now as Shah Rukh is finally getting back to work again. 
As per reports, he will begin shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Pathan, from November-end this year. Initially, SRK was expected to collaborate with director Rajkumar Hirani but due to a delay in the script, Khan is set to work on YRF’s Pathan first.  © Instagram Shah Rukh Khan The Ensemble Cast The film, as per the reports, also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham among others in pivotal roles. The two are expected to join the shoot from January 2021.  The reports suggest that John will be seen playing the antagonist in the much-awaited film.  © Twitter Shah Rukh and Deepika shall be romancing in this film which would be their fourth collaboration after films like Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and Happy New Year. 
When Will The Shooting Begin? As per a report in Mid Day, Khan will commence shoot of Siddharth Anand’s Pathan at Yash Raj Films studios in Andheri, Mumbai.  The report says that given that there will be a lot of excitement around Shah Rukh’s return to films after nearly two years of sabbatical, producer Aditya Chopra has planned for a ‘tentpole actioner’.  Other Details An unnamed trade source was quoted as saying, “The first schedule will be a two-month affair that will focus solely on Shah Rukh’s portions, after which the unit will take a New Year’s break. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, who plays the antagonist, will join the second stint that is slated for January 2021. Like Siddharth’s previous outing War [2019], Pathan will be a slick and stylish revenge drama. Since the film marks Shah Rukh and John’s first on-screen union, Adi and Siddharth have etched out dramatic scenes featuring them. They have roped in action director Parvez Shaikh, who has worked on War, Brahmastra and Bell Bottom, to design high-octane fight sequences between the duo.”  © KKRiders Twitter Shah Rukh is currently in the UAE, where his team Kolkata Knight Riders are taking part in the ongoing IPL 2020. He is often seen sporting long hair with a light beard, reportedly, the look for his upcoming film Pathan.  The source added, “Shah Rukh will sport a stylish look with outfits curated by stylist Shaleena Nathani. Like Raees [2017] where he was seen wearing spectacles, this film will have him flaunting customised sunglasses.”  SRK On Not Signing A Film After Zero © Red Chillies Entertainment Shah Rukh Khan had told Filmfare last year, “I have no film with me right now. I am not working on any film. Usually, what happens is when your one film is coming to an end, you begin work on your next film and I get involved within 3-4 months. But this time I am just not feeling like...My heart doesn’t allow me to...I just felt that I should rather take time out, watch films, listen to stories and read more books.
“Even my kids are in their college stage...my daughter is going to college and my son is about to finish his studies. So, I just want to spend more time with my family,” he added.  Well, one thing is for sure, SRK fans are going to be waiting with bated breath for the return of their hero.

KL Rahul's Heartfelt Gesture For 'Under-Fire' MS Dhoni Is Exactly What Our 'Thala' Needs

Often labelled as one of the most popular and successful teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), to everyone's surprise this season, have looked a mere shadow of the three-time champions we cherished in the past. From losing key players, struggling for form to unfavourable results, nothing has gone CSK's way in the tournament this year. With seven losses in 10 matches, the Chennai brigade is currently languishing at the last spot in the points table. Their recent seven-wicket loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR) has potentially ended their Playoffs hopes and the fans aren't impressed. Amid CSK's poor run, skipper MS Dhoni has drawn a lot of flak for the fortunes of the 'Yellow Brigade' this season. © Twitter/@IPL The Punjab opener had anchored the chase for his team with a brilliant knock of 77 runs which allowed them to tie the match and push it into a 'Super Over'. Facing a daunting task of defending just five runs in an over, Punjab were once again aided by Rahul whose brilliant piece of glovework, that led to the run-out of Quinton de Kock, allowed his team to tie the first 'Super Over' before eventually winning it in the second.
My thala ️️ pic.twitter.com/Av7DUPyn8R — ɢαjαl (@Gajal_Dalmia) October 18, 2020 Rahul's performance with the willow had already earned him plaudits, but it was his exceptional run-out that became the highlight of the match. The right-handed batsman was lauded by cricket pundits and fans alike on social media. Amongst all the praise, one Punjab fan shared the photo of Rahul's run-out on Twitter alongside the caption: "My Thala". There is only one Thala Gajal and everyone knows who he is. — K L Rahul (@klrahul11) October 19, 2020 In response to the fan's tweet, Rahul, who can't seem to do any wrong this season, won many hearts by reminding everyone that there is only one Thala. "There is only one Thala Gajal and everyone knows who he is," Rahul replied. A thrilling win against Mumbai did give Punjab a ray of hope to turn their fortunes this season but the road ahead is extremely tough. Having lost six games in nine matches so far, the Rahul-led side have little margin for error if they intend to make the cut for the Playoffs this season. And, their next clash, which against table-topper Delhi Capitals (DC) on October 20, is not going to be easy either.
