Best friend, sibling, distant relatives and quirky colleagues - every good screenplay comes with a wide variety of characters to flesh out the lead role's journey through a film. Bollywood's history is lined with actors who've made a name by immersing themselves in a role, sometimes so much so that the role becomes synonymous with them - think Amjad Khan in Sholay, for example.
Today, Bollywood's best boast of some of the most incredible and intense performances ever captured on film - here's a few who did such a good job with their roles, they've outshone the main leads on the films they've worked with.
Manoj Bajpayee as Bhiku Mhatre, Satya
Possibly one of the greatest castings in Bollywood history, Bajpayee's performance in Ram Gopal Varma's critically acclaimed crime thriller was nothing short of iconic, but did you know that the actor himself wasn't confident about the role? “Everybody used to feel so excited about my performance but I wasn't sure if we are doing it right,” he said, nearly 20 years after the film. “That feeling of unsureness was always looming large because no one of the film industry was making this kind of a film.”
Vijay Raaz as Somayajulu, Delhi Belly
Raaz has become a go-to choice for voice overs, and perhaps the best example of his gruff baritone is in this incredible black comedy from 2011. Perfect comedic timing, the ability to absolutely steal every scene he's in and a script that props it all up - if only we had more villains like him in the industry.
Arshad Warsi as Shakti, Hulchul
I'll admit I've got a soft spot for Priyadarshan films, and while the over-the-top drama and hilarious gags from Hulchul make it a prime candidate for my favourite one, a large reason why is Warsi's amazing performance. He's jumpy, completely owns his role and outshines lead Akshaye Khanna in every scene they both are in - although reportedly, Warsi had been disappointed with his role during the shoot, and resigned himself to commit to a 100% performance. He sure did.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Shaikh, The Lunchbox
It had to be either Paan Singh Tomar or this - one of the most interesting matchups in the history of Bollywood has been Siddiqui opposite Irrfan Khan, and given that the two were roommates during their days as struggling actors gives huge weight to their scenes together. However, Irrfan acts like he always does, and Siddiqui - instead of his gung-ho gangster or small-time crook typecasts, absolutely nails the role of a bumbling office salesman.
Saif Ali Khan as Langda Tyagi, Omkara
Another fantastic Shakespearean adaptation of Vishal Bhardwaj's Omkara brought together an epic cast - yet the surprise standout remains Saif Ali Khan in the role of the crafty, ruthless gangster Langda Tyagi. After a series of light-hearted roles, watching Saif pull off this intense performance was an absolute treat - and remains one of the best performances of his life.
Pankaj Tripathi as Principal Srivastava, Nil Battey Sannata
Similar to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi's reputation as an antagonist in film is legendary - but watching the actor's rich, lovingly crafted performance as an upstanding school principal betrays the long years he spent developing his skills as a theatre actor. 'Nil Battey Sannata' is my story,” the actor said to Times of India. “It says that one should keep dreaming, stay focused and the dreams will come true.”
Annu Kapoor as Dr. Baldev, Vicky Donor
Famous for his roles and captivating talent as a TV show host, Annu Kapoor blew expectations out of the park with his work in Vicky Donor, splitting audiences' sides with his portrayal of an eccentric fertility clinic doctor. Apparently the role was first offered to Boman Irani - while we think he would have done the role justice, Kapoor's work was just the extra kick of humour that the film needed - making Ayushmann Khurrana's debut a truly special and iconic movie.

Amid the novel coronavirus outbreak, people have been asked to self-quarantine themselves in order to stop the virus from spreading any further. The very first step taken by the government was to shut down all the gyms, theatres, schools, malls and all the other public places where people could gather in large numbers. Itâs already been more than two weeks that people are locked in their homes with no physical contact from the outside world. Now, PM Narendra Modi has also announced a 21-day lockdown which means we have been restricted to our homes for a longer duration now. Well, people are also working from home and with gyms being shut, their movements are also restricted. So, the only thing to keep your body active is to either work out or burn off calories in doing the household chores.
People on social media platforms are complaining that they are lacking the motivation or are finding it difficult to figure out a few easy and handy exercises that can be done at home.
In order to address their problems, I got in touch with Shah Rukh Khan and Varun Dhawanâs personal trainer Prashant Sawant and asked him to share some of the easy exercises that can be done by anyone at home.
View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@prashantsixpack)
He told us, âI have built my career on the basis of repetitions so I advise you should start with a minimum of 20 reps in one set. Let me tell you that anyone can do exercises at home without weights.â Here are 5 exercises you can do as advised by Prashant :
â1. Surya Namaskars
When I started, I used to do like 100 in one go. But, I would suggest starting with 10 as a beginner.
You can totally do squats as they will help you burn those extra calories quickly.
You can have something to hang on to, and easily incorporate pull-ups in your daily regime.
4. Planks and Whole Abs Workout
This is the time you can focus on strengthening your core muscles. You can do planks and crunches staying at home.
5. Cleaning and Focusing On Household Chores
I have been taking care of my kid and playing with him and also cleaning the house and this is helping in burn calories. I would suggest to keep yourself busy with something.â
Furthermore into the conversation, I told him that people who werenât actively involved with working out earlier at the gyms have now become even more lethargic given the current situation. So, I asked him for his suggestion for the people who are completely inactive during this lockdown.
On this, he told me, âFor all the people who are not active, they should start taking small steps. They can start with a 20-minute workout regime. They can do a bit of warm-up and they can start with 10 reps (repetitions) and then keep increasing their stamina. I would suggest a very basic workout regime as nowadays, all the movements have been restricted and the body is going into a lethargic mode. As people are working from home, they are sitting in one place and no one knew that they would be restricted for this long. It's better to start moving a bit as this can only help in keeping your body active.â

I also wanted to understand why are people getting demotivated and are not willing to continue with their workout regime at home. Explaining his stance on the same, he told me, âPeople, maybe, are getting demotivated by seeing workout videos on Instagram. One reason could be that they are not able to cope with what other people are doing and the kind of exercises they are doing. I would suggest following a tutorial that has stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3.â He also went on to add, âDo not lose hope and be consistent with working out, you will eventually see the impact. Build on your stamina step by step. I wouldn't suggest sweating out hard in the first three days and then, you lose the grip so keep it slow and gradual progress will help you attain your goals.â
Prashant is not only just a trainer but he also owns a chain of gyms which are shut due to the outbreak. I asked him how is he taking of all as the business is surely getting impacted. On this, he said, âI am taking it positively and for the gym owners, they will have to be patient and stay calm because of this outbreak. Well, it's time to be with your family. I would advise keeping yourself busy with whatever you like, be it reading, cooking or playing with your kids. This will help in keeping your mind healthy.â
As we are about to end the conversation, I take up the chance to ask him the golden question about how is SRK working out at home.
View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@prashantsixpack)
, âI have been training Shah Rukh sir for good 22 years and the rapport we share now is quite strong. I have already given him the workout and he is doing it twice a day at his home. Right now, he is focusing more on strengthening his legs.â He explained. âI would suggest keeping working out at home as it will keep your mind sane,â he said and signed off.
Well, MensXP hopes that you will take Prashantâs suggestions seriously and incorporate them into your lives. View the full article
Whenever you talk about the biggest rivalries in the game of cricket, the thought of India and Pakistan definitely enters your mind.
Even though in the modern era, players from both teams have downplayed the feeling of playing against each other, these five incidents from the past will surely make you feel differently.
Here are the five biggest fights from the epic rivalry between the cricket teams of India and Pakistan that were captured on camera: 1. Ishant Sharma Vs Kamran Akmal, 2012:
Probably the mildest altercation to make the cut, the battle of words between Indian pacer Ishant Sharma and Pakistan wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal started a delivery after the former survived getting dismissed on a no-ball.
A 5â6ââ tall Akmal held his ground when a 6â4ââ giant Sharma walked right to his face and started a war of words. Suresh Raina tried to get the two athletes away from each other but Ishant went right back at it after taking a few steps back.
The situation got so out of hand that the umpire had to step in and Yuvraj Singh, out of all others, had to push Ishant away in a playful manner.
While Akmal was fined 5% of his match fee, Sharma was found guilty of initiating the spat and was therefore charged 15%. 2. Harbhajan Singh Vs Shoaib Akhtar, 2010:
The Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan turned out to be the source of two eyebrow-raising moments. First was between Gautam Gambhir and Kamran Akmal which led to the Indian batsman hitting an angry 83 off 97 deliveries to give his side a good start to the chase.
But the moment that stood out even more, was when Harbhajan Singh took over after Suresh Rainaâs dismissal and played a brilliant innings to lead India to victory with a six in the final over.
The reason which led to Bhajji playing with a spark was Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtarâs attempt at sledging him in the second last over.
After Raina was gone and Parveen Kumar, a tailender, was Singhâs partner, Akhtar once again tried to irk him with a few taunts and ânot so pleasantâ words. Harbhajan set the record straight with a powerful maximum on the second last ball of the match. 3. Gautam Gambhir Vs Shahid Afridi, 2007:
Gautam Gambhir was one feisty cricketer, wasnât he? Even before his altercation with Akmal, Gambhir found himself a suited feud partner in Pakistani all-rounder, Shahid Afridi during an ODI match in Kanpur.
This is how the fight unfolded: Gambhir hit Afridi for a four, after which the latter started running his mouth and the former retaliated with equal friendliness. On the next ball, Gambhir ran for a single and collided with Afridi who was standing in his way. This led to a second more serious argument, which disrupted the flow of the game and on-field umpire Ian Gould had to step in.
Upon further inspection after the match, both Gambhir and Afridi were fined 65% and 95% of their respective match fees on the accounts of "conduct unbecoming to their status which could bring them or the game of cricket into disrepute" and "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play." 4. Kiran More vs Javed Miandad, 1992
This incident was more of a Grade-A trash-talking and sledging which took place way back in 1992 when India and Pakistan were playing each other in the World Cup match. By Moreâs own admission, he hid his face with his wicket-keeping gloves and kept talking to Javed Miandad from behind the stumps.
An irritated Miandad first complained to the on-field umpire about the same but More simply shot down the allegations. Soon after, Miandad wanted to take a single but was stopped by his partner in his way and had to get back to his crease. By the time, More received the ball and tried to run him out while jumping in the air. Miandad instantly started jumping in the air to mimic him.
The two became really good friends after this incident. The image of the Pakistani batsman jumping animatedly while More just stood there not knowing how to react will continue to be one of the fondest memories of the India-Pakistan rivalry. 5. Venkatesh Prasad vs Aamir Sohail, 1996
And finally, the big one. The World Cup 1996 knockout match between India and Pakistan which had all the ingredients for cooking up an instant classic. There was controversy, excellent batting by both sides, and even a riot taking place not two steps away from the venue, Bangaloreâs M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
After Pakistani opener Saeed Anwar lost his wicket with Pakistanâs score at 84, Aamir Sohail held the fort and how. With 9 fours and 1 six, he reached the half-century mark in less than 50 balls and felt like spicing things up a bit.
After smashing his 9th four off a Venkatesh Prasad delivery, he signalled towards the bowler and asked him to go get it from the line. The delivery that followed, completely stunned the batter who got clean bowled with the stump completely ripping off the ground and laying flat on the surface.
Even then, Sohail didnât give up his arrogance. With zero emotions on his face, he walked straight to the pavilion while gesturing his half-century towards the crowd. View the full article

Every year, a ton of new games make it to the market and though not all of them are worth your time and money, it becomes very difficult to find out the ones that are worth picking up. Of course, we review a lot of them to tell you whether or not it's worth buying but we also come across a lot of disappointing titles almost every now and then.
Well, I decided to list these games out because I seem to have too much time to think about these games during the lockdown. Before I begin, I'd like to point out that none of these games are bad by any means. I mean, it's a huge task to make a game and release it to the public, so if anything, we should appreciate their efforts.
So I am simply pointing out the ones which I found to be very disappointing. Essentially, we're looking at an "overhyped and underdeliver" kind of situation here with these games. Let's check it out -
Watch Dogs is one of those games that literally made me go "Wowza" when I first saw it at an E3 keynote 6 years ago. Seriously, it was one of the best looking video game demos that I had ever seen. But the final retail version that shipped to the players? Well, it was nothing like what we were promised. Anyway, it's currently available for free from the Epic Games Store, so you can check it out if you want to.
If you've played Fable 3, then you're probably wondering why is this game in the list of most disappointing games? Well, as I mentioned earlier, we're talking about the games that couldn't really deliver on the promises made before their release. Fable 3's designer Peter Molyneux is the one considered to be guilty of this.
Game Of Thrones RPG
The only good thing about the Game Of Thrones RPG was the story. I mean, you just can't go wrong with a GoT plot, right? Oh wait, I forgot about season 8. Anyway. The GoT RPG game was disappointing in almost every way. The game mechanics were bad and even the graphics were simply not that great. Simply put, it wasn't on par with the RPGs that were ruling at that time.
Duke Nukem Forever
This is a game that was sitting in development for 15 years. The devs started working on it back in 1997 and it came out 2011. The game legit feels veery old due to that. Everything from dialogue, gameplay mechanics and even graphics, feels like it was made for a 90s game. However, there was way too much hype surrounding this game, and it simply couldn't deliver it.

Marking a refreshing twist in a stateâs approach towards its migrant workforce, the Kerala government has set a precedent by referring to the migrant labourers in the state as 'guest labourers'.
Amid the unforeseen ongoing situation of a global pandemic, that has put countries around the world in complete lockdown, hundreds and thousands of migrant and daily wage labourers are stranded with nowhere to go.
Showing compassion at such a time, the Kerala government, as always, is leading by example by showing a proactive approach, not just towards handling the Coronavirus outbreak but also for its treatment of such workers, whom Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, as well as other government officials, now refer to as 'Atithi thozhilalikal'.
Atithi means guest and thozhilalikal means mazdoor or labourer.
Every good gesture must be appreciated and this particular observation was made by a journalist on Twitter who referred to this as âcreating new words/cultures during #CoronaCrisisâ.
In Kerala, thereâs a new word to refer to migrant workers. Itâs guest labourers (Atithi thozhilalikal). As the CM to officials started using it, itâs becoming a common word there, I am told. creating new words/culture during #CoronaCrisis â Liz Mathew (@MathewLiz) March 27, 2020
Interestingly, the term was first coined by the state's Finance Minister Thomas Issac during his Budget speech in February 2018.
The idea behind this was to commemorate the 3.5 million migrant labourers in Kerala and honour them for their contributions to the stateâs labour force.
The journalistâs post on Twitter about the Vijayan government honouring the workers did not go unappreciated on social media.
Kerala is setting so many examples â Anjali Ojha (@ojhaanjali) March 27, 2020Itâs so much better than Anyasamsthaana thozhilalikal tbh! â Miss Mojo Jojo (@shw8ster) March 27, 2020This word declared on Pinarayi govt's budget on 2018. CM has been using this beautiful word ever since â aÐ¼al Ä¸rÎ¹ÑÐ½nan (@marchformass) March 27, 2020Hats off Kerala!
We reveal who we are in times of crisis.
And Kerala is shining through. â Tanushree Mainrai (@MainraiTanu) March 27, 2020Took its time, but glad its a thing now. Work is worship. â BrawlyPooch (@MeanderingWonk) March 27, 2020Thatâs a much better word to address them. Kerala canât survive without them. I wish the Middle East and South East Asian governments address us like that. â comfortablynumb (@TapTap_80) March 27, 2020However, some people also expressed concern stating that merely renaming migrant workers as 'guests' would not solve the crisis of thousands of workers as jobs are drying up right now.
To add to that, in the absence of public transport during the lockdown, many were forced to undertake arduous journeys back home on foot.
What about this?While we Tamils here are supporting keralites Kerala govt at this time of crisis forcefully evicted and dropped tamil migrant workers at borders without providing food and water.. â The Postman (@kumarikandan) March 27, 2020Meanwhile, will you please find out whether Vijayan's Govt did arrange exit of many such 'guest workers' by special trains to Assam and Santragachi in the past few weeks???? Have been asking this to fellow malayali WARRIORS and NONE, I repeat NONE have cared to respond @seemay â V. Krishna Ananth (@VKrishnaAnanth) March 27, 2020yeah thts wht we need now, new words.. slow clap for the CM #ChinaVirus19 â Low IQ Intellectual (@LowIQ18) March 27, 2020Sounds good and lessens the guilt but on critical thinking itâs OXYMONORIC. which culture ask guest to do paid work ? â bhupen (@bhupendubey) March 27, 2020Nevertheless, addressing them as 'guests' instead of migrants is surely a positive shift in the approach towards them which should be followed by other states too.
Moreover, the government has also set up community kitchens for guest labourers to ensure smooth supply of food for people hit by the crisis. View the full article
It's extremely important for everyone in the world to stay the eff inside, since it's the only way to stop the spread of coronavirus. I don't even have to explain it to anyone that stopping the pandemic is the only priority for the entire planet right now. Till now, Indians who can stay inside seem to be following the protocol and are self-isolating, which is great news. On a not so positive not, those who had no other option but to step out were thrashed by the police.
But, with almost everyone staying indoors, we get to see something we don't usually see - animals and birds thriving and living their best lives. A few people have been sharing videos and pictures of animals seemingly reclaiming the land and well, what a sight! One video from Chandigarh showed a Sambar deer taking a zebra crossing on a wide, empty road that divides Sector 9 and Sector 10 in the city.

If you think you're late in starting out a new career, you're mistaken. Some people take a new career path when they're well in their 50s. Case in point, Dinesh Mohan. A model at 61 with a number of popular brands under him already, Dinesh has completely turned his career around. Now, he's known as the man with the silver beard.

Earlier, what used to be a strictly clean-shaven face for him, has a glorious beard on it now. Take a look at his strong beard transformation here that deserves due credit.

In 2013, he voluntarily retired and decided to change his way of life. This conviction went a long way. He started taking care of his skin, hair, and beard. This is apparent when you see his Instagram posts. His beard would any day give most men a run for their money. While maintaining a beard anyway is no easy job, maintaining a stunning silver beard like that comes with an elaborate beard grooming routine, which we think he's followed through diligently to get here.
