Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' Becomes The 'Blockbuster Of The Decade' But We Still Love 'Race 3'

The year 2019 is coming to an end and with that, we are also marking the end of the decade, and honestly, all this information is too much to process. Anyway, as we inch closer to bidding goodbye to this year and the decade, people are going on a nostalgic trip remembering all the good, the bad and ugly things they came across in the past 10 years. Recently, Yahoo India (we didn't know it's still relevant) too joined this bandwagon with their list of 'blockbusters of the decade'. And Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan has creates yet another record that only he can break.  According to Yahoo India's recent 'decade in review' report, Nitesh Tiwari's Dangal has now been crowned as the biggest 'blockbuster of the decade'. Yes, the same movie based on the life of wrestler-sisters Geeta and Babita Phogat and their father Mahavir Phogat, who strongly believed that 'maari choriyaan choro se kam naa hai', which went on to earn over Rs 2000 crore at the box office globally. © aamir khan productions Aamir Khan's PK too is on the list. Apart from Dangal and PK, the list includes Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, Dhoom 3, Sanju, War, Chennai Express and Dabangg. Honestly, we are kind of disappointed that Race 3 didn't find a place on this list. I mean, why is no one talking about this path-breaking movie which left such a huge impact on our lives? Why is no one talking about Daisy Shah who taught us the biggest life lesson - "Our business is our business, none of your business." © Salman Khan Films Looks like not everyone feels as strongly as we do for the cult movie, Race 3. Anyway, in case you don't have any plans for Christmas or New Year, you can spend your day binge-watching these movies.

Quarter-Life Crisis Is A Real Problem Among Youth & Here Are 5 Signs Your Life Has It Too

If you're in your twenties and constantly feel lost or confused and think your life is weirder than a bizarre Bollywood love story, we're here to tell you that you're not alone. It's going to be okay, my friend as you're just undergoing a 'quarter-life crisis.' Most people in their twenties are often confused about their careers, love life and life, in general. Maybe, your life is falling apart in front of your eyes but trust me, it will get better.  Before you start overthinking, here are a few signs that'll tell you if you're undergoing a quarter-life crisis and how to fix it: 1. You're Feeling Trapped © Unsplash This happens to everyone who is stuck between freedom and early adulthood as you're transitioning from practising independence to commitment. If you've committed to something at an early age, be it your work or a relationship, feeling trapped is 'okay'.  How to fix it? Rather than quitting your job or giving up on your relationship, the best way is to identify the problem and work on a solution. It might sound like a lot of work but trust us, there is no shortcut. 2. You're Constantly Worrying That You're Not Earning Enough © Unsplash The chances are that you're not earning enough. But remember, you are just in your twenties but are stressing like you're in your forties. It is paramount to earn enough and fulfill your dreams but it is also important to work at your own pace and not be part of the rat race. Your achievements and your learning curve isn't the only thing that makes your identity. There is so much more. How to fix it: Rather than focusing on how much you earn, focus on developing and evolving your work skills. Working on self-development will automatically enable you to reach where you've always wanted to reach. Quit procrastinating and jump onto the right track. 3. You're Perpetually Bored © Unsplash If you feel bored all the time, chances are that you're looking for a change and you're just not enjoying your regular schedule anymore. You can also feel bored or worked up in your relationship and it is normal to feel this way. How to fix it: The brainchild is to start doing what you actually like doing. If you don't know what you want to do, it's about time you make a list of things that you've always wanted to do. You can always start doing new things with your significant other to make things more romantic and interesting. Take that cooking lesson you've always wanted to take, join that dance class, hit the gym or take those acting classes that have been on your bucket list ever since. 4. You Dream About Plans That You'll Never Execute © Unsplash This happens with every one and this shouldn't be a big deal, honestly. The problem arises when you're only dreaming and not working on anything and that is called 'procrastinating' and you need to stop doing that. There is no better way but to just do the things that you plan to do unless you're planning on murdering someone. (Okay, please don't ever execute that plan!) How to fix it: Just execute them or don't make grand plans in the first place. It's like writing a to-do list and then not doing it. So, don't make a to-do list in the first place if you are not going to do it at all. 5. You're Unsure About Your Purpose In Life © Unsplash It used to be so simple in school. All we had to do was complete our homework and show up in class. Now, suddenly, we have to unleash a purpose that we are born for, why? How to fix it: It is rather difficult to find just one purpose in life. With the advent of learning to multitask, there is a chance that we've multiple purposes and as far as you are happy, you don't really have to have the ultimate and single purpose in life.

The First Teaser For 'Black Widow' Is Finally Here & Well, It's Extremely Underwhelming

You know how you wait for something for so many months and then when you finally see it, you're extremely disappointed? That's exactly what the first teaser for Black Widow is like. It's been months since anything new Marvel-related came out and fans had been desperately waiting for Black Widow's first look. The first teaser for the movie, that's supposed to release on May 1st finally dropped and honestly, I had just one word after watching it - underwhelming. After movies like Endgame and Infinity War, we have way too many expectations from Marvel movies (or maybe we don't since nothing can top those movies?), whatever the case may be and whatever the level of expectations may be, it wasn't met at all this time. Starting off with that one Natasha Romanoff quote from Endgame - you know which one I'm talking about - the trailer is packed with snippets of action sequences. It also shows Natasha reuniting with her 'sis' and their 'family' coming together. Guess we'll get to see how everyone's related. One more important part of the trailer - Is this Clint? Are we finally getting to see what happened in Budapest? Did they force him to wear a mask to keep the suspense? Okay, this is just a cool shot. Very unrealistic, but cool. New cool suit alert. Here's the full teaser: Maybe I'm just not feeling that excited about the teaser because we're so used to knowing all the characters already in all the recent Marvel movies and the fact we don't know anyone but Natasha, is throwing us off a little. Maybe. No doubt that it will probably be a great origin story for Black Widow because of how badass of a character she is. People are actually pretty excited about it, and I have a feeling I have an unpopular opinion. Here for it. Obviously https://t.co/55hU4afmju — Helen O'Hara (@HelenLOHara) December 3, 2019 Oops. scarlett johansson finally gets her own movie just to be outacted by her costars https://t.co/uzLrt2pBeo — christina (@lavenderhatchet) December 3, 2019 The suits are awesome.

Rajkummar Rao&apos;s &apos;Discoloured&apos; Sneakers Worth 55K & Tattered Jeans Are Dressing Down Goals

Dressing up for the airport may seem like a task, considering the number of things that one has to keep in mind. Starting from the security check, to staying comfortable throughout the duration of the flight, there are several things that impact how do we dress up for the airport. And perhaps, that's also the reason behind our obsession with airport looks and how the check-in gates have become a runway of sorts. Viral Bhayani Believe it or not, there are some people from Bollywood who do it far better than others. And time and again, they have not only shown up how to ace that casual, laidback, norm-core outfit, but how to own up that look. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar Rao, is one such B-Towner. Recently he was spotted outside the Mumbai Airport in a pair of rather zany and uber-cool sneakers. The fact they are minimalistic in the manner in which it implements the camouflaged aesthetic makes them even more dapper. But more on that later. Let's get to his outfit first. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar is seen wearing a black sweater with white horizontal stripes which has been paired with a rather plain and simple, blue coloured bomber jacket. The jacket, as plain and simplistic as it is, works rather well with the blue, strongly washed and heavily distressed pair of blue denim. © Viral Bhayani The choice of his accessory, the cat-eyed frameless pieces are really something on their own and do stand out. But honestly, the sunglasses, as zany as they are, do not really gel well with the rest of the outfit.  © Viral Bhayani Finally, coming to the sneakers, they clearly are the statement piece of the ensemble, and draw attention.  The sneakers in question are a pair of leather sneakers from Prada, which are listed on their website for $790, which stands at roughly just shy of Rs 57,000. Mind you, since these are a luxury leather item, be ready to shell out north of 20 per cent more in import duties and customs. © Hypebeast The sneakers are primarily made of grade A calfskin leather, nylon fabrics and rubber, with rubber being concentrated at the sole. The camouflaged aesthetic of the sneakers is it quite appealing. © Hypebeast © Viral Bhayani All in all, we'll have to say, that this is an airport look done really well. Kudos, Rajkummar!

Lionel Messi Won The Ballon d&apos;Or But Virgil van Dijk Won Our Hearts With Class & Sportsmanship

Didier Drogba was seeking in all the glory at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris when he was given the envelope that carried the name of the 2019 Ballon d'Or winner on Tuesday. When he peeked inside, he knew that he would be creating history when he would announce who had won the prestigious title, it was Lionel Messi's name.  The Argentine footballer won the Ballon d'Or for a record sixth time and has overtaken his long-time legacy rival Cristiano Ronaldo after a one-year stalemate when both Ronaldo and Messi had five and the award was given to Luka Modric in 2018. Not Messi or Ronaldo fan. Just a football fan. But this guy makes football looks like simple 1+1=2.

Six ballon d'or is unreal!! pic.twitter.com/CLEAoX1Vcc — WAN-BEASTSAKA !ð. (@hussainimk) December 2, 2019 “I would like to thank the journalists, who voted me to have this prize. Of course, thank you so much to my colleagues both club and country, who have contributed to this amazing prize,” Messi said after receiving the award. “10 years ago I received my first Golden Ball in Paris. I remember that I came with my three brothers. I was 22 years old, it was unthinkable for me. Today, 10 years later, I receive the sixth, at a special time with my wife and three children," he said. Messi has had a spectacular 2019 which makes it very difficult to argue that the 32-year-old did not deserve the honour. 41 goals in 44 games to lead Barcelona to the La Liga title last season and a visit to the Champions League semis alongside a Copa del Rey finale make a solid case for the all-time great.  Messi Stats with Barça in year 2019 ð´ðµ #6

41 goals
15 assists
44 games (37 starts)
207 dribbles completed
121 chances created
40 BIG big chances created
1866 accurate passes pic.twitter.com/EeCkVleLIT — MKð±ð§ (@BarcaStat) December 1, 2019 Having said that, many believe it was the year of Liverpool football, more specifically a certain Virgil van Dijk. The man who albeit doesn't have any individual statistics to be justifiably compared to Messi, was the major reason behind his club's illustrious season.  With van Dijk leading the defense, the Reds only gave away 38 goals in 45 games in the year which is far better than the rest of the teams in the entire European continent. He has the best solo record than any other defender in the world and has to be credited with the major portion of Liverpool's defense despite having Joel Matip and Joe Gomez to support him. Virgil Van Dijk in 2019:

ð Champions League
ð UEFA Super Cup
â UEFA Nations League finalist
ð¥ PFA Players Player of the Year
ð¥ Premier League Player of the Year
ð¥ UEFA Men's Player of the Year
â PFA Team of the Year
â UEFA Defender of the Year

Ballon d'Or â pic.twitter.com/zUNQnIm7I0 — Yaw Ampofo Jnr (@IamC_crazy) December 2, 2019 Despite knowing how much he'd contributed to the great season that Liverpool had and understanding that he was back by an enormous number of football-watching fanatics, the 29-year-old star showed great class and sportsmanship when he was placed second in a close race with Messi for the Ballon d'Or.  "It was amazing. He (Lionel Messi) is pure natural. He is a six time winner so I need to respect that. I hope we can do again what we did with Liverpool and Netherlands last year," he said afterwards.  While Juventus' No. 7 failed to show up at the event just like he did when Luka Modric was to be given the award last year, van Dijk was not only there to support Leo Messi but also had genuinely positive words to share about the Barcelona legend's monumental achievement.

Sweden&apos;s King & Queen Find Fans In Desi People After They Carry Their Own Bags At The Airport

We desi people are so used to seeing the 'babu or VIP culture' here that we have started assuming that it's an unsaid norm and the global leaders too are following the same culture. But, not everyone follows the same culture and there are some who set an example for the world to follow soon after.  Not everyone makes other people open doors for them, just because they're famous. And not everyone makes other people pick their luggage just because they are royalty. We're talking about the Swedish royal couple King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who are currently on their five-day visit to India. Now, you might expect the royal couple to come in their private aircraft from Stockholm, but they chose an Air India commercial flight instead and carried their own bags after landing at the airport. © Reuters The official Twitter account of Air India tweeted about them travelling in Air India and wrote, "Very Proud moment for Air India when we had a Special Guest onboard. His Majesty Carl Gustaf Folke Hubertus , King of Sweden and Her Majesty Silvia Renate Sommerlath travelled AI168 Stockholm to Delhi. Ms. Sangeeta Sanyal Country Manager Sweden greeted the Royal guests." #FlyAI : Very Proud moment of Air India when we had a Special Guest onboard.

Ms. Sangeeta Sanyal Country Manager Sweden greeted the Royal guests. pic.twitter.com/LXrLeEoDqd — Air India (@airindiain) December 2, 2019 Now, this is something we don't see happening every day and probably is what makes them different from Indians. They may have just arrived in India, but they've already won hearts with their humility. Inspiring to see a king travel by a commercial service and that too of another country's airline. In these times of economic slowdown can India's leaders not demonstrate the same frugality? — Bangalore Aviation (@BLRAviation) December 2, 2019 Royal Visit by a king and Queen and they carry their own bags!!

No vip business. When do we learn from them and shed the babu culture? — Basu (@BosuBasudeb) December 2, 2019 According to news reports, the Swedish royal couple will meet President Ram Nath Kovind, visit Jama Masjid, Red Fort and Gandhi Smriti in Delhi and will also travel to Mumbai and Uttarakhand.

Looks Like, Arjun Kapoor Forgot To Remove The Security Tag From His Sneakers

No matter what the season is, there are certain fashion trends that tend to make a huge comeback and stay with us for a while. Of late, if there's one thing that's definitely making sense to us is that there are various sneaker styles that have become a big deal. From mismatched to worn-out sneakers, these trends are outlandish and artistic at the same time. © Viral Bhayani While many elite B-town celebrities have been hoarding on such sneaker trends, it looks like even Arjun Kapoor couldn't stay behind in this league. Recently for the promotions of his upcoming movie Panipat, he stepped out wearing sneakers without removing the security tag. How was he even able to pass the store? © Viral Bhayani © Hypebeast © Hypebeast When we dug, we found that this pair comes with a security tag attached to them and it's a trend that's certainly quite quirky. AK is seen in Off-white x Nike Air Max 990 'Desert Ore'. These sneakers have unfinished edges and tongue tabs with a signature zip-tie. The deconstructed pair has a monochromatic upper and is further decked in hyper jade bright mango Nike logo on the side. © Hypebeast As per Hypebeast, the Off-white x Nike pair is available at 160 USD that rounds off to Rs 11,468 in India. Lately, Arjun is spotted experimenting with various sneaker styles but this one with security tags is hands down our favourite. © Viral Bhayani At the moment, he is promoting his upcoming movie Panipat and hence, we are hoping to see him in more such striking ensembles and sneakers.  This is a major statement and we guess only Arjun could do it right!

From Being Sanju Samson&apos;s Coach To Attending His Wedding, Rahul Dravid&apos;s Been A Great Mentor

What is it that makes a teacher something more than just that? A mentor, an idol, somebody one would be extremely lucky to have in their life as a guiding light? For Sanju Samson, former Indian batsman and the current head of the National Cricket Academy, Rahul Dravid has been all those things for the better half of the decade.  It was recently announced that the 25-year-old will be replacing Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan in the upcoming T20I series against a visiting West Indies side which is scheduled to take place later this week.  Sanju Samson gets a second wind as he returns to the India squad as a replacement opener for the West Indies series. https://t.co/6IWyxUE6lO — ICC (@ICC) November 27, 2019 Following the update, Samson spoke about Dravid's influence on his cricketing career in an interview with MensXP. “I consider myself to be extremely lucky that I was being trained by someone as great as Rahul Dravid ever since my teenage days,” he says. “Whether it was the India A team or Rajasthan Royals or Delhi Daredevils, I think I was very fortunate to build my career with him by my side.” Sanju Samson thanked Rahul Dravid for Everything ! https://t.co/gs99jUOHJh — ICT - Bleed Blue (@ICT_Bleed) April 11, 2017 Despite making a name for himself in the domestic circuit, the only opportunity Samson got to play for the national Indian roster was a 2015 T20I match against Zimbabwe in Harare. Since then, the talented yet unlucky wicket-keeper batsman has been looking to return to the squad but didn't get the call until now.  And even though he describes his career as a “roller coaster ride”, the success he saw during multiple Ranji Trophy seasons as one of the best athletes Kerala had to offer Samson credits Dravid for the way he bats.  “I have learnt a lot about my game and the way I bat from him. After every match, we used to talk about the way I played and he'd tell me what I could have done to have a better performance and I have seen a significant improvement within me because of him,” Samson added. Not only did Dravid make himself available to coach Samson on the field, but also made sure that he'd become a part of the young cricketer's happiness off of it. When Sanju decided to tie the knot with his college-mate and longtime girlfriend Charulatha in December last year, he decided to keep a very low-key wedding with not more than 30 people being invited to the wedding, including the family members of the bride and the groom. Even then he invited his coach to be a part of such a close gathering and Dravid made sure that he'd be there for him. “Rahul Sir has been a mentor to me and all players who made their India A debuts in the last few years,” Samson had told ET Panache earlier this year. “He is very approachable. You can just walk up to him for tips.” Even Prithvi Shaw, the man who led the junior Indian cricket team to U-19 World Cup championship in 2018, has spoken about how Dravid helped him get back on his feet when he was banned from cricket for unintentionally consuming prohibited substances. This is who Rahul Dravid is. The man who has never believed in showboating but has always put in the work to make himself, his team and eventually his students become better versions of themselves.

5 Actors Who Risked Their Lives & Performed Their Own Stunts To Make The Scene Look Authentic

Acting is no child's play and while most people assume that looking good and dancing around trees is all that an actor requires to do mostly, it is far from being true.  From losing and gaining weight for a certain role, to performing their own stunts for certain movie scenes, some of the best actors work very hard to maintain the authenticity of a particular scene or a movie and here are five such actors who risked their lives to do the same. 1. Amitabh Bachchan The accident on the sets of his movie Coolie almost turned fatal, but thanks to the good fortune of this mega star and the millions of prayers showered on him by his loyal fans across the nation, he breathed a new lease of life. He was shooting for a sequence with Puneet Issar at Bangalore when an action scene was misjudged by the actor as he jumped and fell at the wrong point. He had to undergo multiple surgeries and was on bed for months before he became normal. 2. Aamir Khan In Ghulam, his character was required to run towards an incoming train at full speed. A crazy sequence was performed by the perfectionist himself who refused to have a body double for the shot. He later revealed that in the editing room when he saw the clip, he realised he was extremely close to the running train and was a close save from anything bad happening. 3. Hrithik Roshan The Greek God has done some kickass action in most of his movies but one such incident which left everyone gaping for breath was when he was shooting for one of the movies in the Krissh franchise when he was tied to a harness and was supposed to jump. Strangely, it came off and Hrithik came flying down, but luckily Hrithik was saved from the fall. After a few surgeries and post his recovery, the actor recently also shot a very dangerous stunt with co-star Tiger Shroff in Finland for War. 4. Ajay Devgn He is one actor who defies age by staying insanely fit and performing his own stunts ever since he stepped in Bollywood. He is the son of one of the biggest action directors of Bollywood, so this always came naturally to him. From balancing himself on two bikes for a Rohit Shetty action comedy to shooting in the Balkan mountains for Shivaay, Ajay has risked his life for ensuring that a scene remains authentic. 5. Akshay Kumar He's knows as Khiladi Kumar for a reason. The insanely fit actor is basically perfectionism packed in an energy ball. Akshay has always maintained the fact that he believes in performing his own stunts, no matter how risky they are. Being over 50 has not stopped this fit actor from continuing this tradition as well. He was last seen hanging from a helicopter for an action sequence in Sooryavanshi as the director Rohit Shetty was seen riding on a bike giving out instructions.

She will be flying the Dornier surveillance aircraft of the Indian Navy. https://t.co/2Atjwl8kal pic.twitter.com/biqfG9Ff3u — ANI (@ANI) December 2, 2019 She further added, "Women were always there in the Navy. They were not in the cockpit. Observers were there. This is something different...woman in the cockpit for the first time. It will create more opportunity for other women who want to join Defence...maybe they will start going for choppers and fighters." 24-year-old Shivangi was born in Bihar's Muzaffarpur and completed her schooling from DAV Public school. Reportedly, she completed her training at the Indian Naval Academy last year and came to Kochi to train with the Indian naval air squadron, the INAS 550.

An Abandoned Gurudwara In Pakistan Was Renovated & Reopened By Hindus & Muslims Together

Recently a gurudwara has been renovated and reopened in Pakistan's Sindh which has been closed since the India Pakistan partition. The Gurudwara Baba Nanak has been removed by the followers of Guru Nanak. The gurudwara has been lying abandoned in the Janoji village in Sukkur district of Sindh and was reopened last week as part of celebrations of 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. According to Indian Express, there is no Sikh population in Janoji and the arrangement was undertaken by the Hindu and Muslim communities. Dewa Sikandar, member, Pakistan Hindu Council said, “The local Muslim villagers arranged langar for the devotees. They prepared lunch and karha prasad and also decorated the gurdwara for opening day. Nanak Naam Lewa Sangat chanted Waheguru prayers as well as an aarti.” “Gurdwara Baba Nanak has been reopened after a year of renovation work, which was carried out with the help of donations from Nanak Naam Lewa Sangat. The Hindu community living in Sukkur and Khairpur districts contributed and nearly Rs 6 lakh was spent to renovate the two-room gurdwara,” Sikandar added. Such initiatives are a way to strengthen ties between citizens of both countries and show that love and spirituality is the same irrespective of religion and nationality. What do you think?

Get Ready For Higher Mobile Tariff Plans Now As Operators Have Increased The Rates By 40-50%

India has billions of mobile phone users and all of us will be paying up to 40-percent more to make calls and use data from this month. And the price is not limited to one or two carriers but includes all the major players including Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone. This particular price hike will increase the tariff prices for the first time since 2016. Vodafone and Airtel have been incurring losses for a long time now and they have a January end deadline to pay up thousands of crores in additional statutory dues. Jio, however, is stepping in, to help sustain the industry and has hence confirmed that it'll be increasing the prices too. The telecom industry in India is burdened with over Rs 7 lakh crore of debt and the world's lowest average revenue per user, as noted by the Economic Times. © Reuters Analysts have predicted that this would be the biggest price hike in India's telecom industry and we'll even have to start paying for voice calls which is now being given to us for free. Both Vodafone and Airtel will increase the rates for only prepaid customers starting December 3. There's no word about the prices and it remains to be seen as to what'll happen with the postpaid subscribers. Jio will increase its prices starting December 6. Vodafone Idea says the charges will be in line with our commitment to provide simple, convenient and affordable products. Airtel said the tariff increase will range from 50 paise a day to up to Rs 2.85 per day. Jio also noted that its new prices will be up to 40-percent higher, although it has promised to provide up to 300-percent more benefits. © Reuters We'll soon be curating a list of all the new tariff plans and the best ones to choose from. We doubt if the new prices will significantly the data usage for its subscribers, although you'll certainly be paying more than the current rates. Source: Economic Times

Kartik Aaryan Wore A Fascinating Pair Of Sneakers That Look Like A Vibrant Web

It looks like Kartik Aaryan's sense of style is as fluid as it can be and keeps evolving with time. Kartik recently dipped his toes in spiffy trends; like the time when he was seen at the airport with Deepika Padukone for an impromptu dance-off, he was seen in a pair of strange joggers with 6 dangling zippers. Recently, Kartik Aaryan stepped out in an outfit with a similar aesthetic. Kartik wore a t-shirt that most of us would want to steal and keep in our closets. It had 'Unforgiven' printed on it along with graphics of a gun. He paired this with joggers from Rhude and accessorised with sunglasses from Burberry. However, his edgy Calvin Klein sneakers took the trophy, courtesy an intriguing web design on it. Take a look here: © Instagram/Manav Manglani © Instagram/Manav Manglani After keeping a track on Kartik Aaryan's outfit for quite some time now, we can safely say that this outfit too is in line with Kartik Aaryan's boy-next-door aesthetic styled by Priyanka and Kazim, his stylists. This is not the first time he's worn something offbeat. And, we never forget the nocturnal hoodie he wore for his birthday party. But the version of Kartik Aaryan that we shall be seeing in Pati Patni And Woh will be poles apart and we can't wait to see how that turns out.

6 Movies Where Some Of The Best Bollywood Actors Gave Really Bad Performances

We all make mistakes and we all learn, at least we try to. Our favourite Bollywood stars are no different. While this movie making factory dishes out movies like crazy with so many new faces to experiment with, some movies only work for the beloved super stars acting in them. After all, loyalty has a price.  However, some movies saw some of the biggest stars losing their senses and pelting out such bad performances that it legit hurt their fans.  Here are six movies where some of the best actors gave really bad performances:  1. Love Story 2050 Our 'desi' girl is a global icon today with volumes of great works that speak for her. When she is not slaying on the red carpet or working on a good project, she is spotted in some virtual PDA with her beloved husband Nick Jonas. However, long before PeeCee became a Hollywood star, Love Story 2050 saw her dishing out a bad performance and as per rumours, it was reportedly because of her not-so-good relationship with her ex-flame Harman Baweja.  2. Khushi Bebo is one gorgeous actor who can look fiery and dish out immensely fiery performances in equal measure. However, it is a known fact that in her initial days of Bollywood, she signed some of the random projects but Khushi kind of tops the list, because what was that performance, you queen? 3. RGV Ki Aag You are not supposed to touch master pieces like Sholay because that is like playing with fire. And looks like, this is exactly what RGV wanted to do when he made this dud and managed to make BIG B look so intensely bored in this movie, that it probably made it to his regret list soon enough.  4. Aap Mujhe Acche Lagne Lage There is a reason why Hrithik Roshan is known as a Greek God. Those looks, that ripped body and a talent house of wonderful acting, I have no idea what went into him prepping up for this movie where nothing at all looked good to us. Why, Hrithik?  5. Besharam Ranbir Kapoor's work speaks for him. With tremendous acting done by this genius of an actor in films like Rockstar and Barfi, this movie has no explanation of how it landed in his kitty and why! 6. Dil Ne Jisse Apna Kaha Salman Khan's screen presence is strong enough to get the cash registers ringing but we have no logical explanation for what went into him doing this movie with Preity Zinta and Bhumika Chawla. Three good looking people, one badly written script. So glad that bhai is back to doing Dabangg and entertain us in a way which only he can do.

Here Are 5 Entertaining Recommendations To Stream Online For A Lazy Sunday Binge Watch

In case the first Sunday of December is turning out to be overwhelming for you or today is the day you take out your woollens and pack away the tshirts, then I am guessing going out brunching or dining would not be on the list.  So, for those of you who want some good recommendations on what to stream online today as you order your pizza and change back into the same pair of pyajamas after a hot shower, here are five new suggestions that have hit the streaming services and are ready to entertain you:  1. War The highly recommended action warfare with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff is all the aesthetic pleasure one needs on a lazy Sunday. Battle, bullets, ego, and some good action dished out by Bollywood's most flexible men. Stream it on Amazon Prime and chill with a pizza as their ripped figures make you consider getting a gym membership.  2. The Irishman The much awaited Martin Scorsese movie has been on our lists but given that fact that it is a long watch and one needs a lot of time to soak in the brilliance of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, today seems to be the perfect day to do it and relax with a beer on the couch.  3. One Mic Stand I know there are a plethora of stand up acts out there but if you're in the mood of a funny intellectual watch and want to ditch your brains to spend it on a movie, then stream this instead.  Bonus: Shashi Tharoor dishing out humour is more entertaining than reading a thesaurus decrypting his words.  4. Avengers Endgame I know we have a strata of fans who will go back to something comfortable as they scroll through their social media feed. This one needs no introduction and is ready to be your Sunday friend on Hotstar today.  5. Inside Edge If you loved the first season then you already have plans to stream the second one online this Friday. In case you didn't, then imagine a good looking fictional T20 team, match fixing, some hot cricket politics and more drama all packed in one. Stream the first season again and prepare for the next season, and make the most of today.

Bill Gates Is Ready To Give Rs 70 Lakh To Whoever Makes A Payment App For Old Feature Phones

The smartphone market has seen significant growth not just in India, but across the globe. More are buying smartphones than ever, making it one of the fastest moving commodities. That being said, there's a good chunk of the population that prefers using a good old feature phone. I personally prefer using a dumb feature phone instead of a smartphone to stay away from all the buzzing notifications. However, there are things which you simply can't do on a feature phone. Making payments, for instance, is a huge pain. Although that could change very soon as NCPI has now partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundations to help create an app for the same. Exciting opportunity for #innovators worldwide to build payment solutions for feature phone users in India! Congrats to @CIIEIndia, @NPCI_NPCI & @gatesfoundation for launching the Grand Challenge. More details here - https://t.co/L52lNwLTvb — Nandan Nilekani (@NandanNilekani) November 22, 2019 NCPI (National Payments Corporation of India), for those of you who don't know, are the same people who brought us BHIM, which is a UPI-based payment. And they've collaborated with CIIE.Co and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to give away a huge reward to folks who make a working payments app for feature phones. They've essentially come together to announce a competition, in which they're calling out developers to provide innovative solutions to make this happen. The winner of the competition will walk away with $100,000, which roughly translates to about Rs 70 lakh. That's indeed a lot of money for making an app. That and think about the exposure which you will gain from this particular gig. Vishal Anand Kanvaty, Chief of Innovation at NPCI noted that a significant chunk of population in India still relies on feature phones. And he thinks a solution is necessary to move India into a cashless economy. “Feature phones hold a significant share of the mobile user base in rural and semi-urban populations to anchor India's move to a cashless economy rapidly. With the help of the government and the payments ecosystem, it is crucial that we should focus on providing smart and simple payment solutions to feature phone users," he said. © Reuters Obviously coming up with a proper solution isn't going to be an easy job, but that's exactly what the competition is all about. Winners will also get support from CIIE.Co Bharat Inclusion Initiative, that provides support to sustain startups in the country. If you think you have it takes to come up with a solution or if you think you somebody who can then let then ask them to do the needful by clicking right here.

Kartik Aaryan Wore The Most Bizarre Pair Of Joggers With 6 Dangling Zippers

With celebrity outfits becoming quirkier by the day, Kartik Aaryan is someone who doesn't shy away from dipping his toes in bizarre trends.  Recently, for the promotional event for his film, Kartik was seen at the airport in an impromptu dance-off with Deepika Padukone. And while at it, he was seen in the strangest cargo pants we've seen in a long time.  Here, take a look: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Nov 30, 2019 at 8:42pm PST If you take a close look at these joggers, you'll notice that they are full of zip-up pockets. We think this is partly the reason why they're rather quirky. © Viral Bhayani Here's the thing. Cargos do not have that many enclosed pockets usually. Also looks like, these cargos are spacious enough to store all the things possibly you'll need for a night's sleepover.  © Viral Bhayani One could easily fit in the basics like a brush, fresh undies and other knick-knacks that you'll need and you're good to go without actually feeling the need to carry a bag around.  This is extremely convenient as it turns out, Kartik's decision to wear bizarre cargo pants is not just style-centric but also practical. It is rather a comfortable attire with multiple pockets, which is why you don't see him carrying a bag around. Let us know what you think about his quirky look in the comments section below.

English Teacher In This UP School Failing To Read From The Textbook Is Every Parent&apos;s Nightmare

Our parents, students and society in general, put a great amount of faith in teachers. They entrust their kids' future in the hands of teachers. They believe that even if the whole world says no, if the teacher says 'Yes' then that's right.   But, what if that teacher is not right? We get it that it's not possible for everyone to know everything. Even teachers make mistakes. But, for an English teacher to have difficulty reading from the English textbook is not one of them. That's not a mistake, that's plain ignorance and scary on a whole new level. © Pexels Recently, an inspection was done in a government school in UP by the District Mgistrate (DM) Devendra Kumar Pandey. During the inspection he asked an English teacher to read a few lines from a class 8 textbook. However, she failed to do so. She couldn't read properly.   Reportedly, Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) Pradeep Kumar Pandey said, "An inspection was done by District Magistrate (DM) Devendra Kumar Pandey, and I was also part of the inspection. In classes 6 and 8 when the lessons were asked to be read in Hindi then most students were able to do that. But when the students were made to read in English then most of them failed, and even some teachers failed to do so." #WATCH Unnao: An English teacher fails to read a few lines of the language from a book after the District Magistrate, Devendra Kumar Pandey, asked her to read during an inspection of a govt school in Sikandarpur Sarausi. (28.11) pic.twitter.com/wAVZSKCIMS — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) November 30, 2019 The DM further scolded the teacher that if she can't read properly then how will she teach the kids. He said that she should be suspended immediately. She is an English teacher and she can't even read English properly. When the teacher started defending herself, he cuts her short, saying, “So what? You're BA pass, aren't you? I did not even ask you to translate, all I asked for was that you read a few lines in English from the text book…and you couldn't do that.” Further action will be taken after the district magistrate submits his report.
