'The Big Bang Theory' may be famous for Sheldon Cooper, who without a doubt is the king of quirk, but it also gave us Leonard Hofstadter, the guy who was at the centre of everything, who made nerds look cool, who gave all men the hope that they could land the woman of their dreams.
From being a pure badass who stood up to his school bully to going after a woman way out of his league and winning her over by just being himself, Leonard slowly and steadily made his way into our hearts.
In a group of friends, there is always a person like Leonard who looks out for his friends and take things in his stride when need be. Are you the Leonard of the group?
Here are 10 points that can help you in identifying if you indeed are main man of your gang:
1. You're The Unofficial Leader Of Your Group
Basically you are the glue that holds the group together. From making plans to deciding major things for the rest of the gang, you take the important calls and somehow end up taking care of everyone.
2. You Are Too Hard On Yourself
You can't help but pick on your weaknesses and go over it again and again until you feel pretty crappy about yourself. You feel the need to be perfect and sometimes get a complex when you see someone, who you think is better than you.
3. You Go Out Of Your Way For Your Best Friend
Literally. Be it financially, or saving him in awkward situation, you never leave your bro hanging and treat him like your brother.
4. You Can Be Savage If Need Be
Sure you are nice guy, but there are times when your friends push the wrong buttons and you find yourself shutting them down in the most savage way possible. It's a rare occurrence, but when it happens, oh boy, the gang better prepare themselves.
5. You Can Transform From A Shy Guy To A Sexy Beast
Usually you maintain your calm, shy persona when you're around the gang, but if need be, you can go through a major personality change for the ladies!
6. You Find Yourself Making Sacrifices For Your Friends
You don't mind making those sacrifices, to be honest. At the end of the day, the happiness of your friends is the most important thing for you, and if that means making some tough choices for yourself, then you don't mind that.
7. Your Friends Are Your Family
Each member in your gang is special and means something to you. Besides taking care and protecting them, you see them as your second family, which basically makes them an extremely important part of your life.
8. You Tend To Panic Pretty Quickly
One of the problems that come with taking charge of the group is that there is a lot riding on you. Which can sometimes make you feel like you're losing control of certain situations, which can result in you freaking the f**k out.
9. You'll Do Anything For The Woman You Love
Even if she is your girlfriend, or just a woman you adore from afar, you are willing to go above and beyond for her. Sometimes the adoration can go a little too far and you end up getting clingy and let her walk all over you, but that's part of your charm!
10. You're A Badass Despite Your Weaknesses
Simply put…you're the boss! People may make fun of your looks, your quirks and what not, but deep down, they know you're a badass who is the centre of your group.
Superhero movies may be condemned for their high use of CGI and less of dramatic or real-life plots, but the same genre entertains a huge chunk of audiences across the globe. This fact is quite evident in the box office collections of the films in this genre.
All the top five films finding their place in the highest-grossing list belong to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has crossed $17 billion collectively from 20 films to date.
1. Avengers – Infinity War
Box Office - $2.038 billion as of 9th July 2018
No surprises here, as we all know 'Avengers: Infinity War' was the first of its kind and one of the most ambitious superhero films to date, drawing storylines from 18 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
It broke every box-office opening record to date with quite a huge margin. Let us have a look at the box-office records created by 'Avengers Infinity War' –
. Biggest worldwide opening weekend and single weekend gross – $640.5 million beating Fate of The Furious' $541.9 million
. Biggest opening weekend in the United States and Canada – $257.7 million
. Fastest to cross $1 billion worldwide in 11 days and $1.5 billion in 18 days
. Highest grossing superhero movie and of 2018 – $2.038 billion as of 9th July 2018
. Highest number of 4DX admissions. It was the first movie to reach two million admissions
. Fourth highest grossing film of all time as of 9th July 2018
It also created a splash in India by becoming the highest grossing Hollywood film to date with INR 225 crores surpassing Disney's 'The Jungle Book' at the box office and the first ever to cross INR 200 crores.
2. The Avengers
Box Office - $1.519 billion
The film from where everything in MCU began to shape up. 'The Avengers' brought a team of six superheroes – Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Hawkeye, together for the first time, fighting against Loki and the alien invaders, Chitauris. At the time of release, 'Avengers' not only crossed $1.519 billion in global receipts but also went on to become the third highest-grossing film of all time.
3. Avengers – Age of Ultron
Box Office - $1.405 billion
The second instalment in the Avengers franchise, 'Age of Ultron' brought chaos in the city of Slovakia with the artificial intelligence defense program – Ultron. Though the movie met with a polarized reception from audiences and critics alike, as it fell short of the audience's expectations, it still raked in $1.405 billion globally.
The film debuted at the 5th position in the highest-grossing films at the time of its release and presently stands at the 8th position.
4. Black Panther
Box Office - $1.346 billion
The highest grossing superhero origins movie of all time with an all-black cast, 'Black Panther' defied all box office expectations and went on to become the 9th highest-grossing film with 1.346 billion box-office collections worldwide.
It also went on to become the 3rd highest grossing film in the United States and Canada with $699.88 million only after 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and 'Avatar'.
5. Iron Man 3
Box Office - $1.215 billion
Following the gigantic success of 'The Avengers', Marvel found itself facing the huge task to fulfil fans' expectations, and no other superhero could replicate the success single-handedly, except for Iron Man.
Shane Black directed 'Iron Man 3' which collected $1.215 billion at the global box office, riding high on the success of 'The Avengers' and also kick-started the second-phase in the MCU.
There are series which are great and loved by many. Then there are some which are just blindly loved and there's nothing great about them. But for one reason or the other, they get a hold of the audiences' nerve and become quite popular, despite being just an average show.
Following are 5 such shows which got way more attention than they deserved:
1. Arrested Development
With an IMDB rating of 9, this show is supposed to be great. Not 'FRIENDS' level great, but still, great enough to get you hooked and make you laugh. After all, that is what a sitcom's primary objective is.
But it fails to even make you chuckle on most occasions. This sitcom certainly isn't funny enough to get a 9 rating on IMDB. The storyline is fine at best, the acting is passable, but at times it seems more like a drama series than a comedy.
2. 13 Reasons Why
This is one of the slowest TV series I have ever watched. I am not saying slow TV shows are bad, I am a huge fan of 'True Detective' – Season 1, but slow does not mean it can't be gripping.
'13 Reasons Why' got by solely because of its novelty. The concept is good, but the storyline isn't. This show is like Priya Prakash Varrier, got famous for no reason whatsoever. It should have been rated around 6, instead of 8.1.
3. Daredevil – Season 1
I'm going to get a lot of heat on this one, but hear me out! I loved 'Daredevil' Season 2, thanks to the Punisher. The reason I found season 1 just average is that it lacks character development.
When you're showing a superhero series from the scratch, it should answer the 'how & why' questions about the superhero's strengths, which it failed to do miserably.
All we see is a blind man who trained a blind kid to fight like no one else can. There is no 'how' behind this story. If you've seen the first couple of seasons of 'Arrow', you'll know what I am saying.
From punching a guy to aiming the arrow with precision, every cool move that was shown in the 'Arrow' was associated with the background of how he learned it. That is how a good superhero series should be. You shouldn't leave the character development to the audiences' imagination.
4. Parks and Recreations
I couldn't bear this one for more than a few episodes. A series with an 8.6 rating should be good since the start. But it isn't. It isn't funny, the storyline is weird, and it seems that the show was simply riding on the pivotal character of Leslie Knope, played by the delightful Amy Poehler.
Usually, this happens after a few seasons where the network can't find a good direction to take the story forward, but still stretches the show just because of its popularity. 'Parks and Recreation' gave me that feeling in the first episode itself.
5. House of Cards
This show definitely does not deserve a 9 IMDB rating! Apart from some stellar instances of acting, the show simply doesn't have anything else to offer. The storyline isn't good, the plot is weak, and the content isn't gripping. One character alone does not make a show. After I watched the first 4 episodes, I couldn't force myself to watch anymore.
And now, with Kevin Spacey being kicked out of the show, the series has blessedly reached its finale!
When Kerala was battling with one of the worst floods in the state's history, the world saw some real heroes in action, who were neither wearing any cape nor any metallic suit or powerful weapons. All they carried with them was courage, bravery and a strong will to rescue each and every person who was stuck in the deluge.
One such brave hero was this fisherman Jaisal, who knelt down on all fours in knee-deep water, and offered his back to the women to climb onto the rescue boat. This man commands our respect for this heartwarming gesture.
Although, no amount of words or actions are enough to salute the efforts of the volunteers, NDRF members, Indian Navy, Army, fishermen and the local police during the rescue operations; people are doing their bit to thank these unsung heroes.
Social media was already filled with praise and good wishes for Jaisal, now Mahindra and its dealer in Kerala called Eram Motors have rewarded him with a brand new Mahindra Marazzo for his heroic efforts.
The car's key was officially handed over to Jaisal by Kerala Excise and Labour minister TP Ramachandran. Jaisal said that the situation, where he saw women facing a difficulty in climbing onto the boat, prompted him to do it. He didn't do it for any fame or reward.
Anand Mahindra too tweeted about this kind gesture.
— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) September 9, 2018
Jaisal was overjoyed after he recieved the gift and said that he will use it for social good in the future too.
The world needs more selfless and brave people like Jaisal who don't think twice before risking their lives to save others.
I can't refer you to people from whom you can get relationship advice. I can't give you any suggestions on impressing your crush. I can't talk about 1001 ways to propose to someone either, but I can tell about one guy you shouldn't take any relationship advice from nor learn how to propose someone.
I am talking about Mikesh, the goofiest and funniest guy from 'Permanent Roommates'. If you have seen the series, you will know what I am talking about. How can we forget Mikesh's epic proposal fail?
Although Mikesh's proposal was a disaster and he does not really tick all the boxes when it comes to being an ideal man, actor Sumeet Vyas is quite the opposite in real life and has the most beautiful love story to share.
Actor Sumeet Vyas, who was last seen in 'Veere Di Wedding' is all set to get married to actress Ekta Kaul on September 15 and recently spoke with 'Humans Of Bombay' about his love story and what made him realise that Ekta is the one for her.
Ekta wasn't bothered by the fame and the insane popularity Sumeet enjoyed. In fact, she wasn't affected even after watching 'Permanent Roommates'.

While talking about love, he said, "It's not one big moment when you know you've met 'the one'. It's how they make you feel everyday; if they make you a better person. And she does. But one stand out moment was last year during holi! I rode my motorcycle to a party and had a little bit of bhang. I was in no state to ride. She saw that and took the keys –I thought she was joking! I mean it was a Bullet! But she just got on and off we went, me in the backseat and my lady driving the bullet. I was thinking then, Man! I'm going to marry her! She's the one!"

“I'd been single for sometime–you know that phase where your friends say, 'you're single, doing well, don't get into a relationship'?–I tried but got over it quickly. Around then, I met her.. at shows & on sets, but I didn't know how to pursue her! She tweeted about my show & we started talking–I invited her to my play & we went out after! We ended up talking for hours about acting. By the third time, I had a feeling she wasn't getting it! So I specified, 'This is a date okay? & she just nodded! She's not from the acting circuit–she was discovered by chance. It was a breath of fresh air! I've been around serious artists all my life.. this was so different! Even our choices didn't match! The first movie we watched was La la land–I came out of it emotional & she was like eh! I thought oh no–how's this going to work? When we started dating, I was at sea. How do I impress her? I told her that I'm kind of famous as this character, Mikesh..She wasn't bothered! When people asked me for photographs- she'd wonder why! The next time we met, she'd watched my entire show! I asked her how–it was so long-she said she watched it while getting ready! I was confused–Why wasn't it affecting her! But that's how I knew she was with me for the right reasons. It's not one big moment when you know you've met 'the one'. It's how they make you feel everyday; if they make you a better person & she does. But one such moment was last year during holi! I rode my bike to a party & had a little bit of bhang. I was in no state to ride. She saw that & took the keys –I thought she was joking! I mean it was a Bullet! But she just got on & off we went, me in the backseat & my lady driving the bullet. I thought then, Man! I'm going to marry her! She's the one! But, all of a sudden she left for Jammu because she realised acting wasn't for her! I knew then that I wanted to do everything to make this work. I asked her to move back for our relationship–to give us a chance. Thankfully, she agreed, but I didn't want to risk it, so this year on my birthday, I popped the question! She was so happy, she had a childlike smile & I swear even though I gave her a ring, it's me who found the diamond!”

He further said, "This year on my birthday, I popped the question! She was so happy, she had this childlike smile on her face, and I swear even though I gave her a ring, it's me who found the diamond!"
Shah Rukh Khan taught us that the day you fall in love you will hear bells ringing, rose petals falling from the sky and a soft violin music playing in the background. While most of us are waiting for that day (hopefully not), for Sumeet it was a Holi party and bhang and eventually a Bullet that turned into Cupid.
Bollywood's OG Khiladi, Akshay Kumar, turned a year older today. Someone who doesn't know much about Bollywood might confuse him for an actor who is in his late 30s or early 40s, thanks to his agility and insane fitness levels. However, the actor who is aging like fine wine is now 51.
Akshay kickstarted his birthday celebrations with a small dinner party at a restaurant with his wife Twinkle Khanna and some close friends. Twinkle Khanna, who recently launched her book 'Pyjamas Are Forgiving', shared the picture on social media, "Sometimes when you don't plan things - it all falls in place - Happy Birthday to my lovely Mr K ! #birthdaybumps."

Can we call it an 'Ajnabee' mini reunion? Let's not! Although with DJ Bobby in the house, we're curious if he played any 'Gupt' songs for the birthday boy. Or did they spend their time gossiping about 'Race 3' and discussing the script of 'Race 4'? Anyway, here's wishing actor Akshay Kumar a very Happy Birthday.
From Karan Johar to Madhuri Dixit Nene, here's how Bollywood wished him on his birthday.

'The Conjuring' series is one of the highest grossing horror franchises in Hollywood and its latest instalment 'The Nun' got some great reviews as well. However, Valak, the demon nun who has scared us out of our wits and will continue to do so for the rest of our lives, is not an animated figurine but a very talented actress called Bonnie Aarons.

However, in today's world of cinema, art and talent are appreciated and looks are taking a backseat. Interestingly, Aarons had a small role in the popular movie 'The Princess Diaries' and its sequel, before landing the role of the demon nun in 'The Conjuring' series.

Bonnie is a powerhouse actress and lets see how many more movies this talented woman garners, because clearly, her fan following is only increasing by the day, and people would love to see her in different roles.
The highlight of the first day of the fifth test match between England and India was not a good catch or a shot of a six, but it was Shikhar Dhawan's impromptu Bhangra that took the 'desis' around the world by storm. Amidst the ongoing match at the Oval, Dhawan joined his cheering fans and decided to just show his Bhangra skills on the field.
#ENGvIND Another amazing day of Test Cricket at the Oval - we even got the legend @SDhawan25 to do some Bhangra to our Dhol. #COTI ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/fMKUnXfpdn

Dhawan's dance moves set the stadium on fire and when one Punjabi starts dancing, can another stop? No! Harbhajan Singh, who was in the commentary box, joined him and decided to dance in his seat as well.

In a world where apps and blind dates decide love equations, it is very easy to not believe in emotions of love and its reality. But the world of cinema often gives us new hope. Yes, at times things are very cheesy and at times cruel, but at the same time, it makes us smile, miss our partner and leaves us craving for their presence.
To give you all the right feels and make some moments extra special, we bring you a list of Netflix romances that'll give you more than one reason to celebrate a cosy and romantic weekend with your love.
1. Lust Stories
What's better than coming across the reality of love equations and marital life? 'Lust Stories' makes for a brilliant watch and its concept is refreshingly daring. From conjugal problems, marital complexities to sexual hiccups: every story revolves around love, lust, sex, and desires- some illicit, some unrequited.
2. Love Per Square Foot
Buying a house in Mumbai is the most difficult part. But would you prefer a marriage of convenience just to have your own house? Witness Sanjay and Karina's story and see if it turns into a love story.
P.S. Watch it for Vicky Kaushal
3. Set it Up
Don't we all have a boss who doesn't have a life of their own and makes our life a living hell as well? In need of a desperate break, two tired, frustrated assistants team up to trick their respective workaholic bosses into falling in love.
4. The Kissing Booth
If you haven't heard about this one yet, you are surely not living on planet Earth. A story of friendship and love and a delicious love triangle. Elle Evans, a pretty, late-bloomer who's never-been-kissed, comes up with an idea to run a kissing booth. And there she unexpectedly finds herself lip-locking her best friend's brother.
5. Alex Strangelove
High school senior Alex Truelove has one thing on his mind and that's losing his virginity, much to the excitement of his patient girlfriend and rowdy friends.
6. Catching Feelings
A dark romantic comedy that can't be missed. The story follows an urbane young academic and his beautiful wife. But everything turns upside down when a celebrated hedonistic older writer moves into their house with them.
7. Ali's Wedding
What happens when a lie spirals out of control? This movie is the classic example. A neurotic, naive, and musically gifted Muslim cleric's eldest son Mahdi (Don Hany) is expected to follow the traditional arranged marriage concept. But the twist is that he is head over heels in love with an Australian-born Lebanese girl Dianne (Helana Sawires).
8. Irreplaceable You
The story of Abbie and Sam takes you through a roller-coaster ride, best friends since childhood they are engaged to be married. But life has unexpected plans for them. Everything comes crashing down when Abbie is diagnosed with cancer. But she doesn't stop and in many humorous ways, tries to find Sam a new love.
9. When We First Met
Using a magical photo booth that time travels to make things right, Noah relives the night he met Avery over and over again, trying to persuade her to fall for him. But life isn't always as it looks like.
10. Us And Them
10 years ago, during the hectic Chunyun season, 2 strangers travelling home meet on a train. The movie takes you through their journey of realizing their dreams, love, breakups. 10 years later, they reunite again but on a plane.
11. Like Father
A movie that brings a beautiful tale that you just can't miss. When a workaholic girl is left at her altar, she ends up being with the last person she would want to be. What follows next is her going on a Caribbean honeymoon cruise... with her dad!
12. The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society
Ready for some historical romance? A writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II and decides to document everything in a book.
Do you remember your first job interview? That nervousness of walking inside the room where employers are eagerly waiting to scan and judge you on the basis of your CV. In fact, most of us lost the game solely because someone else's CV was stronger than ours.
Writing an impressive resume is one of the hardest steps in the quest to get a job. You probably had to take advice from your parents or elder siblings on where to start and efficiently list down your skills, qualifications and achievements. While most of us got the best suggestions to ace our resume game, I am sure a certain 16-year-old Lauren Moore from North Yorkshire is currently regretting (or maybe not) her decision to let her dad write her resume.
Lauren Moore/ Twitter
The CV looked like a generic one with everything mentioned such as achievements, grades, skills and experience; but it was the content inside that was pure gold.
He mentioned 'giving out all clients' information to fraudsters', 'digging holes looking for gold', 'browsing Facebook' and 'f**king everything up' as responsibilities and 'lazy', 'late', 'rude' and 'couldn't give a f**k' as skills and personal qualities.
Lauren Moore/ Twitter
At least now we know who is not getting a job anytime soon.
Lauren posted this hilarious CV on social media with the caption, "Remind me not to let my dad do my CV for me." Well, it's too late Lauren!
And this ingenious dad made sure not to miss out on the most important part of the CV - reference. While we list our seniors or former colleagues, he listed a probation officer called Ben Dover and wrote, "Don't contact him, he doesn't give a f**k either."
Lauren Moore/ Twitter
Her friends and everyone else who read this masterpiece was left in splits and we're sure you too won't be able to hold your laughter as well, once you take a look at the incredible CV.
So folks, the next time your parents tell you, "You cannot fool us! We know everything about you," do not take those words lightly. Who knows, they might have a CV ready for you as well.
Irrespective of the sport, the journey of an athlete is usually governed by hard work, dedication and the sheer will to succeed. But, while many helplessly chase success, only a handful manage to reach their true potential and make a mark in their respective fields.
So, what really separates the ones trying to be successful than those who actually are? The answer is pretty simple: they dream.
Big, boisterous dreams. No matter how ludicrous they may seem at first, having dreams is an irreplaceable gift and a rare luxury every human being is born with, but not many are able to make full use of it. It doesn't matter how small or big they are, dreams can act as sheer motivation to push one to their limits. And, they are addictive too.
Once you've realised a dream, you just can't stop yourself from being obsessed with another. It's a chain reaction you see, one feeds the other. And, the cycle never stops. It shouldn't stop.
You will get frustrated, lose hope and even contemplate the idea of making amends with what you have, but such is the addiction of dreaming that, no matter how hard you run away from it, once you've dreamt of attaining something or reaching somewhere in life, it will keep running at the back of your mind till it's taken care of.
The story of India's rising shooting star - Saurabh Chaudhary - is quite similar. Hailing from the unheard village of Kalina where farming is the main occupation on the banks of the Hindon river in UP's Meerut tehsil, Saurabh never really dreamt of making a career in professional shooting, let alone win a gold medal for India at the 2018 Asian Games in the 10m air pistol category.

From a young age, he began helping his father in the farming chores on their ancestral land. It didn't matter whether he liked it or not, farming was the reason his family could afford the basic amenities. But, deep down, Saurabh knew that farming - which allowed his family to sustain themselves all this while - was not something he wanted to do for life. And, he found his calling in professional shooting.
At the age of 13, Saurabh began honing his skills in shooting after embracing it as a hobby. But he knew, if his dreams of making it big in the sport were to come true, he had to seek professional help. This was the time when he turned to Amit Sheoran's famed academy at Benoli near Baghpat, 53 km away from Meerut.
It's one heck of an achievement to compete at the Asian Games when you are a teenager.But to win a Gold @asiangames2018 is what dreams are made of .. congratulations to Saurabh Chaudhary .. Proud!! ??????

Hard training and practise for countless hours forced him to stay away from his home and family, but whenever he got some spare time, Saurabh would rush back to his residence and help his father in the daily chores on their farmlands. "I like farming. We don't get much time off from training but whenever I do, I go back to my village and help my father," the youngster told PTI.
Despite picking the sport just three years back, Saurabh's shooting skills, including his consistency to hit the mark, soon saw him representing India at the world stage. And, Saurabh didn't disappoint there either.
In December 2017, the youngster stunned everyone with a brilliant showing at the Asian Youth Olympics Games qualification. He notched up a sensational shooting total of 243.1 - a then-junior world record - and secured a gold medal finish at the tournament. Thanks to his prolific performance, Saurabh also secured qualification for the 2018 Youth Olympics, slated to be held in Buenos Aires in October this year.

The year 2017 saw him being a part of the Indian shooting team that grabbed the bronze at the 2017 World Juniors, where he finished fourth in the individual event. It was also the same year where a 15-year-old Saurabh was seen beating the celebrated Jitu Rai in the 10m air pistol, after bagging silver medals in both the Junior and Youth events on that very day.
A year later, Saurabh set the hearts of Indian fans racing with another record-breaking performance at the world stage. The Indian wunderkind set a new junior world record on the way to winning a gold medal at the ISSF Junior World Cup in Suhl, Germany earlier in June. He shot a total of 243.7 in the eight-man final of the 10m air pistol event.
His consistent performances were the prime reason why he was considered a big medal prospect for India at the 2018 Asian Games by his coaching staff, if not by fans.
Ahead of the Games, no one had any doubt over Saurabh's capabilities, but there were some questions over his temperament since he was making his debut on the senior shooting circuit.
A great achievement by Saurabh Chaudhary to win the Gold medal at the Asian Games at just 16 years of age. Wishing all the athletes competing at thd games a very fruitful games #AsianGame2018

But, when the competition began, the 16-year-old turned into a man and delivered arguably the best performance of his short, yet already illustrious, career. Unfazed by the star status or experience of his opponents, Saurabh remained amongst the top two from almost the beginning of his event till it finished.
The youngster made his intentions pretty clear in the qualification round where, in six sets, he shot 99 thrice and 98 twice to ensure his total of 586 propelled him to the top spot ahead of seasoned campaigners like 38-year-old Jin Jong-oh (famed South Korean who has won three gold medals at the Asian Games) and 42-year-old Tomoyuki Matsuda (Japanese sharp-shooter decorated with two World Championships gold).
In Stage I of the finals, Matsuda managed to assert a two-shot lead over Saurabh as eight finalists finished the round after taking 10 shots apiece. The Stage II, elimination round of the final, proved to be a nail-biter where Saurabh - despite trailing Matsuda for the most part - did exceptionally well to emerge as the winner.
16 years. Very first Asian Games. AND A ?? MEDAL.
The INCREDIBLY talented #SaurabhChaudhary has truly arrived! WELL DONE, young man! Proud of you! #AsianGames2018 #IndiaAtAsianGames pic.twitter.com/JTyBz1QgiG

The final set, where the two remaining shooters were subjected to take two shots, saw Saurabh shooting a 10.2 against Matsuda's mediocre 8.9 - his worst shot of the day. The rare error allowed the Indian to take lead for the first time in the final round. Showing no signs of nerves and maintaining perfect composure, Saurabh scored a brilliant 10.4 in his final shot to edge past Matsuda (who scored 10.3) to run away with the Asian Games gold on debut.
Young Saurabh ended the final round with a total score of 240.7 - a new Asian Games record, while Matsuda had to make merry with the silver with the second-best score of 239.7.
If his shooting prowess elated the Indian fans, Saurabh's comments after his gold-medal finish earned him the respect of the shooting fraternity.
"I did not feel any pressure. I just came to compete and do my best. I have been in good form and given good results and trained hard," the 16-year-old said.
For a young boy who took the sport just three years ago, Saurabh - standing tall at the podium with a gold medal around his neck - didn't just emulate the golden feat achieved by the likes of famed Jaspal Rana, Randhir Singh, Jitu Rai and Ronjan Sodhi, he appeared as the perfect embodiment of a sportsperson who dreamt big and won bigger.
India's most popular reality show 'Bigg Boss' is returning with its 12th Season and fans are beside themselves with anticipation for this year's bloodbath.
For the lovers of the show, watching Salman Khan in his 'Dabangg' avatar is one of best things that happens every 'Shaanivaar Ki Raat'.
Bringing in a new concept like always, this time we will see around 21 contestants making it inside the house.
The house will have three celeb jodis, three commoner jodis and some other contestants entering the house. The list of shortlisted candidates for BB12 has already gotten us very excited and it looks promising indeed.
Earlier, we had told you that British adult movie star Danny D and his girlfriend, Mahika Sharma are all set to enter the house. Turns out, they are being paid a staggering amount of money to be on the show.

With reports suggesting that they are the highest paid contestants this year, they will apparently be paid a whopping Rs 95 Lakh per week.

If the reports are true, then this would be the second time that someone from the adult movie industry would be making their debut on Salman Khan's show.
Danny D aka Matt Hughes was a carpenter before he ventured into the adult film industry. Danny is already quite loaded and this just looks like his way to make an entry in India.
'Bigg Boss 12' will go on the air on 16th September and people are already waiting with bated breath to watch the inmates lose their cool and go for each other's throats.
Just like its last season, it is being expected that even this year, the show will rule the TRP charts.
The nepotism debate in Bollywood keeps heating up every day when a new star kid is launched. While some fans love it, people who genuinely struggle with talent running in their veins obviously find it a bitter pill to swallow, and why not. This year the debut movies of Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Khan were announced. While Janhvi's debut 'Dhadak' has already hit the theatres, Sara's debut is yet to release. Amidst this entire controversy, SRK's daughter Suhana Khan was dragged in the nepotism arena after she made it to the cover of a magazine.

People started calling out the entire issue about everyone promoting star kids and what was the struggle they had to endure in order to get this massive amount of fame. Rumour has it that this is an obvious step towards Suhana's Bollywood debut.

The idea is that the star kid will be formally be introduced to the world on this platform before a debut is announced for her. Will KJo be dragged into another nepotism soup? Well, only time will tell.
