Bollywood Met India's Biggest Superstar PM Modi To Mark Gandhi Ji's 150th Birth Anniversary

Bollywood might  be the entertainment manufacturing unit of this country, but to millions of people in India and even outside, PM Modi is a bigger superstar. The PM recently hosted a dinner for the Bollywood fraternity to mark the celebrations of Gandhi Ji's 150th birth anniversary. The evening saw some of the biggest names come under one roof to discuss culture, the life of the father of this nation and other initiatives taken by the PM and what Bollywood could do. It saw actors like Aamir Khan and SRK thank Modi Ji for this initiative as well. View this post on Instagram Thank u @narendramodi for hosting us & having such an open discussion on #ChangeWithin & the role artistes can play in spreading awareness of the msgs of The Mahatma. Also the idea of a University of Cinema is extremely opportune! A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Oct 19, 2019 at 8:56am PDT I would like to thank PM @narendramodi for brining us all together, that too for a cause such as this (Mahatma Gandhi).

I feel we need to re-introduce Gandhi Ji to India and the world: noted actor @iamsrk pic.twitter.com/JE8Ibv09Ue — PMO India (@PMOIndia) October 19, 2019 A cultural video which had these same actors talking about Gandhi Ji was also played at the event.  Deeply honoured to have played a small part in showcasing Mahatma Gandhiji's greatness.

We will leave no stone unturned to carry forward the message of Bapu in letter and spirit. @iamsrk https://t.co/L0G38kKRvr — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 20, 2019 Through popular culture, the message of empowering women has travelled far and wide. May this trend continue.

No one knows where this crisis is going to take the nation but our social media is surely up to date with all these celeb pictures.

Ranveer Singh's Space-Age Sneakers Look So Futuristic That Even NASA Will Approve Of Them

If there's one B-town star whose fashion sense has no bounds and limits, we would all know the answer and that is Ranveer Singh. He is called 'the king of fashion' and literally no other celebrity has been able to dethrone him. His eerie outfits, from extra AF long pants to the longest sneakers, he makes us all go berserk over all his looks.  © Viral Bhayani And just when you thought he might stop for a bit, he was spotted yet again with his quirky style game. Ranveer walked down the ramp for Simple Simone in a metallic outfit with space-age sneakers that totally have a futuristic vibe to them.  Exhibit A: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Oct 19, 2019 at 7:04am PDT © Viral Bhayani These metallic sneakers have avant-garde aesthetics. They are so out-of-the-box that the pair can instantly up your street style creds. Not just that, these sneakers sure have a futuristic vibe with their dramatic construction. And since these sneakers do have space-age aesthetics, we believe that NASA might approve of the style and would want to redesign their own version too. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani It was not just Ranveer's shoes that had the futuristic feel to them but even his outfit checked all the boxes right. He walked the ramp with an embroidered bomber jacket coupled with metallic pants. Plus, the cap and super edgy sunglasses are just perfect with the 'lewk'. What can we say, you nailed it again, Ranveer!

Ranveer Singh Wore A 'Joker' Suit That Made Him The Perfect Choice For The Hindi Remake Of Joker

Ranveer Singh can literally turn anything into an eyebrow-raising outfit. The fact that the inspiration for his outfits comes from everything around him is what makes his outfits out of ordinary. Case in point: pulling off an outfit inspired from the film Joker. Who would have thought that a brilliant film like Joker could be an inspiration for Ranveer Singh but not just in terms of acting? © Viral Bhayani Now, for a recent event, he wore a head to toe Gucci outfit with vibrant red three-piece with a coordinated green tie, he finished the look with a matching red beret, a pair of shades and derbys, all by Gucci. However, the whole vibe of the outfit matched Joker's aesthetic from the scene wherein he had lost all morality in the film. The outfit references to this scene in particular wherein the Joker kills his coworker and struts across the streets of Gotham. © Joker Ranveer Singh's look clearly holds a striking resemblance to this look. This is not the first time Ranveer Singh has worn something bizarre. He usually chooses pieces to curate an outfit that is outlandish. In fact, he's the trendsetter when it comes to bizarre, over-the-top fashion and has made these trends acceptable here which is a commendable achievement.

Cristiano Ronaldo Beats Virat Kohli & Lionel Messi In Instagram Earnings To Become Number One

There has always been a battle between cricket and soccer. Both sports have a huge fan base and in India, cricket is highly liked. But across the globe, soccer has the biggest fan base. However, we don't intend to compare the two sports and rate which is better. But recently, there is a comparison being done, by Buzz Bingo, on the basis of who is earning more from the social media platform Instagram. View this post on Instagram I love this feeling â½ï¸ð #93... A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano) on Sep 11, 2019 at 10:30am PDT Cristiano Ronaldo has around 186 million followers and Lionel Messi has around 133 million followers on Instagram. Besides the two soccer players, Indian cricketer, Virat Kohli, who is currently among the best batsmen in the world cricket has around 42 million followers on the social media app. Ronaldo not only beats Messi but also Kendall Jenner in terms of social media followers, as per the study.   The Portugal striker has earned a sum of USD 975K per post in his last 34 sponsored posts. Whereas, Messi has earned a revenue of USD 648K per post in his last 36 posts. According to the Republic, it has been confirmed that out of the top 10 earners in the world are players like David Beckham, Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic who have made their way into the list. Kohli stands 11th on the list and has an earning of USD 196k per post. He has earned an amount of USD 1.18 million from Instagram in the last one year. View this post on Instagram Always looking forward to Test Cricket! ð A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Oct 1, 2019 at 5:52am PDT The Indian Captain is one of the best batsmen across all the formats and has led his team to several accolades under his captaincy. This year he guided India to a Test series win in Australia. He is one of the biggest marketable profiles in India where advertisement companies want to place their money. The Indian captain has a huge fan following compared to other sportspersons in the country.

Karan Johar Wore A Pair Of Insane 'Kiss' Boots That Were Taller Than Ananya Pandey's Heels

Karan Johar is quite the collector when it comes to off-beat outfits. Case in point, a recent event wherein he carried a bizarre look that intrigued us all. He was seen in a black and golden pantsuit by Issey Miyake along with a pair of Rick Owens boots and Yohji Yamamoto shades to complete the look. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani However, the fascinating aspect of his outfit lied in his boots. The Rick Owens silhouette is from FW'19 and is called the Larry Elastic Kiss Boots. They come for the price of $1413 which comes down to Rs 1,00,450. Here's what the silhouette looks like at a closer look: © Rick Owens This look especially stands out because the boots, as they appear, are a minimum of six inches long which also happens to be more than average of what women wear to events. Usually, regular shoes can give you an additional inch or two but this pair of Rick Owens is clearly an exception to the rule. So for example in this picture, if you look at Ananya Pandey with Karan Johar, you'll notice that Karan Johar's kiss boots are in fact taller than Ananya's heels. Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani This is not the first time Karan Johar has been spotted in a bizarre-looking outfit. In fact, in the past, he was spotted with a bag that changed colours like a chameleon. He was also seen wearing a sweatshirt with a to-do list on it. For Karan Johar, it seems like it isn't very hard to cherry-pick the best silhouettes for his flashy looks. We can't wait to see what he has in store for us next.

5 Fascinating Facts About The World's Longest Ever Direct Flight That Prove It's An Incredible Feat

October 18 marked a pretty important day in the history of commercial aviation, as Australian airline Qantas embarked on the first test flight of Project Sunrise, which aims to establish a direct flight from Sydney to London and New York - here are some key facts behind this record-shattering attempt. It Will Break The Longest Direct Flight Record © Qantas No small feat here - Qantas is aiming to make it into the history books with this flight, which happens to cover roughly 16,200 kilometres, over 20 hours. It's so long that if you were on the aircraft, you'd have to adjust for a 15-hour difference due to time zones. The previous champion was Singapore Airlines' 18.5 hour journey from Singapore to New Jersey. The Flight Also Works As A Closely Monitored Test Environment © Qantas Naturally, any commercial airline needs to focus on the comfort, safety and health of its passengers. And as an industry first, this particular flight offers a great opportunity for Qantas to study the effects of continuous flight on both crew and passengers.  As a result, the test flight will carry 40 crew members, whose movements in the cabin, eating habits and sleep schedule will be studied to prepare the flight for its planned 2022 launch. An Unusual Flight Plan © Qantas Rather than following the standard practice of serving food and dimming the lights after takeoff, Qantas plans to keep everyone awake for six hours. They'll be helped by food containing hot peppers and spices. Now that's one way to keep your crew awake and alert. “The passenger research will test alternatives to how airlines have managed in-flight service for decades,” said Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce. © Reuters The industry's traditional schedule may not be the best way to switch the body clock to the destination's time zone, he said. A Legendary Aircraft Taking On The Journey © Qantas Launched in 2011, the Boeing 787 'Dreamliner' is an aircraft that's done an incredible job of connecting the world ever since its launch. With its remarkable fuel efficiency and range, it's succeeded in helping airlines establish over 1,900 routes over the last eight years. © Qantas With a standard capacity of 296 passengers, Qantas has chosen the 787-9 variant for this test flight, but are in talks with Airbus and Boeing to adapt the A350 and 777x aircraft, as they're more commercially viable. Possible Health Risks © Steven Thompson Along with the psychological factors of being stuck in an airplane for several hours, there's some very real medical concerns for ultra-long range flyers. If stuck in your seat for too long, there's a possibility that you will develop blood clots in the veins of your legs - a condition called Deep Vein Thrombosis, or DVT.  The clots formed can travel through the body and block an artery in the lungs, leading to a condition called pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal if not promptly treated. On a less serious note, there's also the prospect of the flight giving passengers the worst jet lag in human history. Thankfully, Boeing says that their cabin is pressurised to 6,000 feet rather than 8,000 feet, a move that helps reduce passenger fatigue and sleep issues. How do you think you'd handle 20 hours in an airplane? Tell us in the comments below.

This Chandigarh Cop's Musical Traffic Lesson Is So Lit, Even Daler Mehndi Has Got Nothing On Him

Who said your job has to be monotonous, and that you should tolerate a drab and dull day at work? Humans are known to be innovators and we always find ways of changing things around us to serve our purposes better. Take the example of this Sikh traffic cop, for instance, who not only took care of his duty but also made it musical and fun.  A video featuring a Sikh traffic cop from Chandigarh has gone viral on social media, where he can be seen delivering lessons on traffic rules and regulations through a Punjabi song. This can only happen in India
and that too by a Punjabi cop.pic.twitter.com/7jdhZaakaO — Tarek Fatah (@TarekFatah) October 18, 2019 And the tunes of this cop's anthem is not just any random combination of musical notes, but inspired by our OG Punjabi singer Daler Mehndi's memorable 90s song Bolo Ta Ra Ra! The only difference being that the lyrics no longer talks about a woman, but instead, reminds people on the road about traffic rules that must be followed to avoid any unnecessary hassles. The cop urges people to park at the appointed spots and avoid getting their car towed or stolen in the process. The cop seems to be enjoying this part of his job, and we're sure commuters wouldn't have complained either. People online cannot stop enjoying themselves and laugh along with the video.  Gaddi nu crain le gayi.. bolo Tara Ra Rað¤£ðð¤£ð — (((Deepak chauhan))) (@Deepu8412) October 18, 2019 Lyrics are LIT.

11 Chris Hemsworth Workout Videos That Are All The Motivation You'll Need To Finally Hit The Gym

Chris Hemsworth is not just one of the fittest people in Marvel, but also the entire Hollywood. I mean, that's like a pre-requisite for playing Thor in any movie other than Avengers: Endgame. He's a gym bro out and out, but not the cringey, annoying one, but the kind that would give anyone the motivation to actually start working out or maybe take their workouts to the next level. He, obviously, spends a good amount of time working out, so it's no surprise that every other thing he posts online is videos of him doing just that. But, what sets him apart is his content.  Unlike the usual crowd, who post gym-mirror selfies and flaunt oiled abs at the same damn gym every time, Chris likes to mix it up and actually show all the crazy workouts he does. Well, if that's not inspiring, I don't know what is.  I probably heard about 'underwater workout' for the first time because of Chris.

Robber Kisses Old Lady's Forehead, Refuses To Take Her Money & People Are Like 'Kya Sanskaar Hai'

Do you recall the days when crime shows were a thing on TV and we'd sit through the entire episode just because it soothed our souls immensely when the culprit was brought to justice? Well, those were the days, but they are in the past. Now is the time for sanskari criminals who carry out crimes, but with consideration. Take this one incident of robbery in Brazil for instance. A video of a robbery at a pharmacy store in Brazil has gone viral because of this 'sweet' criminal who refused to take money from an elderly customer present in the store and kissed her on the forehead instead before leaving. Watch the video here. The CCTV footage shows how the two robbers enter the store and threaten the man at the cash counter before one of them starts to gather all the money. In the meantime, the other robber can be seen talking to an old lady who is offering her money to the dude. This man, however, refuses her offer and kisses her on the forehead as a sign of respect and affection. © Twitter While the robbers took off with almost $240 and are still at large, the store owner Samuel Almeida in an interview said that the female customer had approached one of the robbers and offered her money. Instead, he kissed her and said, “No, ma'am, you can be quiet, I don't want your money.” After witnessing all this sweetness, now we need a dose of “chain se sona hai toh jaag jao...” just so that we don't make it a habit to expect such sweet gestures from every criminal out there. People too have found this footage endearing...besides other things.

Vicky Kaushal's Famous Dialogue 'How's The Josh' Is Now A Dish & We Really Want To Try It

When Vicky Kaushal's hit movie URI was released, his now-iconic dialogue "how's the josh" became a viral trend as everyone started making videos saying the powerful line. © RSVP Movies In a new development, it looks like the dialogue has not been restricted to being said by fans, but is also the name of a dish.  Recently, the actor shared an image of a restaurant menu on his Instagram story, highlighting a dish named "How's The Josh". It comprises of Rogan Josh, a Kashmiri mutton preparation, accompanied by Jeera Naan. Here's the proof: © Instagram/Vicky Kaushal We wonder if the dish is equally high in taste as the movie was. Talking about URI, the film is based on the Indian Army's surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan in 2016, as a retaliation for the Uri attack that claimed the lives of 17 Indian Army personnel.    Taking about the catchy line, director Aditya Dhar had once said, “I had some friends from Defence background, so with them, I used to go to a lot of Army clubs. There was one in Delhi where we used to go for Christmas or New Year parties. There used to be a retired Brigadier who would line up all the kids in front of him and have chocolate in his hand. He would say 'How's the josh'' and we were to respond with 'high sir!' The kid who was the loudest got the chocolate. Being a foodie, I used to be the loudest and always got the chocolate.”

KL Rahul Intentionally Destroying His Rs 50K Sneakers Is A Next Level Style Statement

Usually, KL Rahul has his style game on point and can really set trends, especially when it comes to athleisure. Be it for normal public appearances at award ceremonies, and parties or when he is just out and about with his gang, he really knows his stuff. © Viral Bhayani So when he decided to wear a pair of desecrated sneakers to a launch event, not only did it puzzle us beyond our wits, it also turned quite a few sneakerheads' heads. © Viral Bhayani The pair of sneakers in question are the Off-Court 3.0 white sneakers from Off-White. They normally retail for about $670 or Rs 47,000, and can be picked from a number of e-commerce websites on the internet. © SSense The sneakers are made in Italy using A-grade suede leather and have rubber soles. Right out of the box, the sneakers come in a “shabby” or dirty state, meaning that they are a little soiled and have a patina-like finish around the sole and the uppers. © SSense As with all Off-White shoes, the Off-Courts also comes with the orange plastic tag and a few other embellishments, which actually give Off-White their signature aesthete. © SSense KL Rahul, it seems, in a bid to personalise his sneakers ripped of the flappy orange fabric tags from the tongue and the vamp.  © Viral Bhayani We're not commenting if this makes the sneakers better or worse, but it surely is one hell of a way to customise an already unique and rare pair of sneakers, and an even greater way to make a statement piece. © Viral Bhayani If we consider the rest of the outfit, KL Rahul is actually pulling the ensemble off really well. An understated black cargo and t-shirt from Gully, layered with a blue gradient bomber jacket makes for a really cheeky way to carry off the streetwear-meets-athleisure aesthete that KL seems to be going for here.

People Are Confused If Saif Ali Khan's 'Laal Kaptaan' Is A Masterpiece Or A Waste Of His Talent

With kohl-lined eyes and long, wild locks, Saif Ali Khan created a rabid curiosity among people to watch his latest movie Laal Kaptaan on the big screen and the verdict is in.  Over the years, Saif has evolved as an actor and his idea of experimenting with roles has clearly been working for him. After watching the trailer of Laal Kaptaan, viewers were left wanting and waiting to see what new element the actor is bringing to the table this time. The movie has already hit the screens and as expected, people have some rather strong opinions.  While some are saying the movie is most certainly worth a watch as the concept is something new and brave which has been attempted before, some found it to be an absolute waste of Saif's talent. Check out the reactions here: #LaalKaptaan

Saif has gone the extra mile to look convincing for the role that he had taken up in Laal Kaptaan. Talking about the physical transformation he underwent to play the role of a revenge-seeking saadhu, Saif had earlier said, "I even got my ears pierced for the role, which I was worried about initially. My hair has grown a lot. It bothered me throughout summer when I was shooting in Rajasthan's sweltering heat. It took me 40 minutes to two hours sometimes to just get into hair and make-up for the part." Apart from this movie, Saif will be seen next in Taanaji: The Unsung Hero, which co-stars Ajay Devgn, in Dil Bechara, alongside Sushant Singh Rajput and in Jawaani Jaaneman, which will mark the Bollywood debut of Pooja Bedi's daughter Alaia Furniturewalla.

Lady Gaga Falls Off Stage Straddling A Fan & People Are Calling It WWE's 'Spinebuster' Move

Ever since her debut album The Fame, Lady Gaga has amassed a pretty rampant fan following, and hasn't been shy about giving back to her fanbase. This took a rather unfortunate turn during her Vegas show last night - where she crashed into the audience along with a fan who was holding her. Lady Gaga and a fan suffered a major fall at #Enigma tonight! ð±  pic.twitter.com/3YplZSUHIG — The Pop Hub (@ThePopHub) 18 October 2019 Reportedly, Gaga had invited this particular fan, named Jack, to join her onstage - a common occurrence at most of her performances. As soon as he climbed up, she jumped right into his arms, causing Jack to lose his balance and send the both of them tumbling offstage onto the ground. plssss ð­ð­ð­ð­ pic.twitter.com/wvvd1d5Odw — alex ð§ð¼‍âï¸ (@alexjergi) 18 October 2019 Several fans rose up in concern - especially since the 33-year-old artist suffers from a condition known as fibromyalgia, a chronic, painful condition that's similar to arthritis.  Hope they're okay omg that must've hurt — Martð (@Martin_1706_) 18 October 2019 While others got WWE flashbacks - comparing the accident to one of pro wrestling's most famous moves - the Spinebuster. pic.twitter.com/uLDtBDw5WL — Vincent (@vlove615) October 18, 2019 Fortunately, she assured fans that the pair suffered no serious injury, and even took a laugh at the whole incident. The BBC quoted her saying, "It's amazing. We love each other so much we fell off the damn stage. We fell into each other's arms. We're like Jack and Rose from Titanic. I suppose we should have some tea after that." She even consoled Jack after the accident saying, "Don't worry, everything's fine. It's not your fault." She added, "Could you promise me something? Could you forgive yourself right now for what just happened?" - also pointing out that everyone on the internet should refrain from bullying or teasing him over the matter. Soon enough, she went right back into her performance, busting out a routine to one of her most popular songs, Bad Romance. Lady Gaga fell off the stage and then proceeded to kill the Bad Romance choreography like nothing ever happened. The level of professionalism... far too much! pic.twitter.com/X6EFxhlGIL — Lady Gaga Facts (@LGMonsterFacts) 18 October 2019 The incident occurred just days after Gaga blew up on Twitter for her Fortnite post.

Yuvraj Singh Takes A Dig At BCCI While Congratulating Sourav Ganguly For His New Position

From scripting India's iconic victory at Lord's in 2002 to being a vital cog in MS Dhoni-led side's World Cup triumph in 2011, Yuvraj Singh will undeniably go down in the history books as one of the most prolific batting all-rounders to have graced Indian cricket.  In his illustrious career that spanned close to 19 years, Yuvi successfully carried out his responsibilities as a key member of the Indian cricket team which earned him praise from pundits and fans alike. But, after being a humble servant of Indian cricket, the left-hander, earlier this June, called time on his illustrious career.  While his retirement sent Indian fans into a state of mourning, bringing the curtain down on his international career also gave him an opportunity to finally break the silence on his mistreatment at the hands of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Despite his contribution to Indian cricket, the BCCI robbed Yuvi off his farewell game.  After 25yrs in cricket Ive decided to move on. Cricket has given me everythin I have.ThankU 4being a part of this journey.This game taught me how to fight,how to fall,to dust off,to get up again n move forward. It has been a lovely journey. See you on the other side #SteppingOut pic.twitter.com/x3wOhoXcLv — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) June 10, 2019 "Mujhe bola gaya tha agar aapse 'Yo-Yo' test pass nahi hota toh aap retirement match khel sakate ho (I was told that if you are not able to pass the 'Yo-Yo' test, I would get a farewell game)," the 37-year-old had said at an emotional press conference in Mumbai. "I did not tell anyone in BCCI that I have to play the last match. Agar main accha tha, potential tha toh main ground pe se chale jaata. (If I was good enough, I would have retired from the ground). Aur mujhe is tarha ki cricket khelna pasand nahi hai, ki mujhe ek match chahiye (I don't like to ask for a game, I have never played the game with that mindset)," he claimed. © BCCL "Toh maine us time bola ki mujhe retirement match nahi chahiye, 'Yo-Yo' test pass nahi hoga toh main chup chhap ghar chale jayunga... 'Yo-Yo' test pass kiya and then rest is not my call," he said. While the revelations struck a chord with the fans, Yuvi's mistreatment at the hands of the BCCI still seems to be haunting the champion cricketer. Recently, cricketers and fans have been busy celebrating the election of Sourav Ganguly as the new BCCI president. As Ganguly gears up to begin his reign as the BCCI chief from 23rd October, wishes and congratulatory messages continue to pour in from all corners of the world for the former Indian captain. Greater the man greatest the journey! Frm IndianCaptain to @BCCI president.Think it will b a gr8 insight 4 a cricketer to be an administrator & make others understand admin frm a players point of view Wish u were d president while d yoyo was in demandðgood luck dadið@SGanguly99 — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) October 18, 2019 Amongst the praise and support, there was a special message from Yuvi who appears to have taken a dig at the BCCI while hailing Ganguly in the new role. “Greater the man greatest the journey! Frm IndianCaptain to @BCCI president. Think it will b a gr8 insight 4 a cricketer to be an administrator & make others understand admin frm a players point of view Wish u were d president while d yoyo was in demand good luck dadi @SGanguly99,” Yuvi tweeted. Thank u the best .. u have won India world cups .. time to do good things for the game now .. u r my super star .. god bless always — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) October 18, 2019 In response, Ganguly, who shares a special bond with Yuvi, wrote: "Thank u the best..u have won India world cups..time to do good things for the game now..u r my super star..god bless always".

PCB Apologises For Posting Pak Cricketers' Dance Video After Sacking Sarfaraz Ahmed As Captain

Ever since their dismal outing at the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been hell-bent on fixing impending issues in the national team to prepare themselves better for future assignments. The PCB got rid of coach Mickey Arthur and the majority of the support staff. There have been noticeable changes in developmental cricket in the country and, there has also been a key focus on the diet of the cricketers. In a bid to bring in a major overhaul of the national team, the PCB recently took another key decision by sacking Sarfaraz Ahmed as captain of their Test and T20I sides. The cricket board has elevated the likes of Azhar Ali and Babar Azam to leadership roles in Tests and T20Is respectively. © Reuters Sarfaraz has been calling the shots as captain for Pakistan in all three formats for the last two years. He was at the helm of affairs when Pakistan sprung a surprise on arch-rivals India to win the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017. But, his captaincy has come under scrutiny in the last two years. Under his captaincy, Pakistan has slipped in Test and ODI team rankings. And, more recently, a depleted Sri Lankan side whitewashed Pakistan 3-0 in the T20I series at home. With his own form suffering with the bat, speculations were rife that the new head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq would bring in considerable changes, with many expecting an axe on Sarfaraz. While it's too early to comment on whether the move will aid Pakistan or not, the PCB found themselves in a peculiar situation after their recent decision. Right after announcing Sarfaraz's sacking, the PCB released a video of the Pakistan squad dancing during a training session. Here is â¦@TheRealPCBâ© tweet moments after Sarfaraz was sacked. Classy. (Background score courtesy my one-year old) pic.twitter.com/QuCqxQTDXJ — Osman Samiuddin (@OsmanSamiuddin) October 18, 2019 In a video shared by a journalist on social media, Pakistani cricketers can be seen dancing. The video was captioned: "Here is @TheRealPCB tweet moments after Sarfaraz was sacked. Classy. (Background score courtesy my one-year-old)". The PCB apologies for this post and accepts the timing of it was wrong. This was a pre-planned post as part of the one-year to go #T20WorldCup promotional campaign. The timing of this post clashed with the captaincy announcement for which the PCB offers its regrets. — Pakistan Cricket (@TheRealPCB) October 18, 2019 After being called out on Twitter, the PCB was quick to delete their insensitive tweet and rendered an apology. "The PCB apologies for this post and accepts the timing of it was wrong. This was a pre-planned post as part of the one-year to go #T20WorldCup promotional campaign. The timing of this post clashed with the captaincy announcement for which the PCB offers its regrets," the PCB tweeted.

MP Minister Wants To Make State Roads 'Chakachak Like Hema Malini's Cheeks'

There's a lot of things you can compare roads with, but honestly, I never thought 'cheeks' would be one of them. But, Madhya Pradesh minister PC Sharma is getting a little creative - and a lot creepy - while talking about the road repairs in the state. Basically, he said the roads in Bhopal would soon be 'chakachak, just like Hema Malini's cheeks'. Yep, this is real. You know what he thinks the roads look like right now? Apparently, the roads have spots similar to small-pox, like "(BJP general secretary) Kailash Vijayvargiya's cheeks". © Twitter What is his obsession with 'cheeks'? And, I wouldn't want to be Kailash Vijayvargiya right now, tbh. While talking to reporters yesterday, he said, "Under the leadership of Public Works minister Sajjan Vermaji and directives of chief minister Kamal Nathji, the roads would be repaired in 15 days. They will be made 'Chakachak', like Hema Malini's cheeks in 15 to 20 days." Obviously, the 'cheeky' comment is a little unsettling and it would've been weird if it wasn't called out. But, people didn't disappoint, of course. Yep, for sure. As Hema Malini turns 71 today, her cheeks are still figuring in day's headline with politicians considering them as standard parameter for good roads

Dream Girl, who has done over 150 movies and is now an MP seems to hv strange fan base among lawmakers.https://t.co/Y6DjVTaTBn — Ashish Kedia (@kediashish) October 16, 2019 That person needs to be fired.

'Was The Best Decision Of Our Lives': Deepika On Why She Didn't Live With Ranveer Before Marriage

Bollywood's one of the most loved couples Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are only a few months away from celebrating their first wedding anniversary, as they tied the knot in December 2018. Recently, in an interview to Harper's Bazaar US, Deepika got candid about her life after marriage, battling depression and her Bollywood journey so far among others.  The 33-year-old actor, on being asked about why she did not want to live with Ranveer before marriage, said, “There was a lot of temptation to move away from the traditional, especially for the two of us, who are constantly travelling, but it was important to me." She added, "Ranveer has always been okay with whatever. He's always said, 'Whatever makes you happy makes me happy.' But for me, it's about wanting to do everything at the right time. It's how I saw my parents do it, so I didn't know any other way.” View this post on Instagram â¤ï¸ A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Feb 22, 2019 at 3:51am PST “If we had started living together earlier, then what would we be discovering later on? That's what this year has been—living together and discovering each other. I like to say we made the best decision of our lives. I know people are cynical about marriage, but that hasn't been our experience. We believe in the institution, and we're enjoying every bit of it,” she further added. Should we call it a wise decision? It surely seems to have worked for the 'power couple' and they are still madly in love. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Nov 20, 2018 at 3:32am PST Soon after the wedding, Deepika started shooting for Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, in which she will be seen playing the role of an acid attack survivor.  Besides, she will also be seen in the much awaited film 83, a biopic of veteran cricketer Kapil Dev, alongside her husband Ranveer. Deepika plays cricketer Kapil Dev's wife Romi.

Here Is Everything One Needs To Know About 'Matrix 4', The Best Sci-Fi Franchise To Ever Exist

Here's some mid-week news that'll probably kill that dullness you all have been spiralling down into, voluntarily. Especially for those humans who can thrive on mainstream cinema like their life depends on it, because this news is like cold drinking water in the middle of a vast desert for them. The fourth instalment of Matrix is officially happening, with some old and new actors in the loop and we can't keep our cool any longer.  We've all grown up watching the trilogy and if there is something to take away from the series, it's the thought-provoking pieces of sci-fi it has given us, over the last decade. © shortlist So, let's list down everything we know so far, everything we've recently found out and everything else that's left in the realms of speculation, about Matrix 4: (1) Who Is Coming Back Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as the hacker Neo, in the fourth instalment, alongside another cast member, Carrie-Ann Moss, and we can't wait to watch what they have in store for us in the fourth edition. The movie will be directed by co-creator Lana Wachowski who will also write and produce the film.  Given Trinity and Neo's fates at the end of the original Matrix trilogy, the sequel will need to find an intelligent way to incorporate their roles into the new story. But I guess that shouldn't be too difficult for a series that's all about virtual reality, mysticism and, of course, some massive plot twists! © Warner Bros Apart from Keanu and Carrie, we have someone else amidst us who was announced to be part of the franchise this month. TBH, he's quite legen...wait for it...dary! Yup, How I Met Your Mother and Gone Girl actor, Neil Patrick Harris has also joined the cast in an unidentified role. We're not sure what role he's been offered but it's definitely Harris's first big film. © Movieweb Apart from Harris, the film also stars Aquaman's Black Manta,  Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, in a significant lead role. We believe he plays the younger version of Morpheus, the role that was originally played by Lawrence Fishburne in the Matrix series.  We also recently found out that Jada Pinkett Smith is in current negotiations to return to the franchise. She played the role of Niobe in parts 2 and 3, The Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions and from what we've heard, she's not done with the role. For now, we're still waiting for confirmation on this but it'll be a happy little reunion to have her back in the cast. © deadlien (2) Who Isn't Coming Back Sadly enough the OG Morpheus, aka Lawrence Fishburne, has decided he does not need more Matrix in his life and wants to sit this one out. Which also means the pivotal role of Morpheus will be recast. Wanna take any wild guesses on who, in all probability, will take up the character? Also, the original producer, Joel Silver will not be working on the new Matrix movie. We're really bummed about Fishburne's absence though. © Warner Bros (3) What's The Plot? “Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I'm very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends,”  Lana Wachowski said in the official announcement at a press conference. © Warner Bros Well, to make the theme more relevant for Matrix 4, whatever has happened in the past twenty years is under consideration or at least there is a slight flashback mention of the events that occurred in the earlier series. So far, we know that the main Matrix theme is definitely back and in some way, it paraphrases the other revolutionary franchise, John Wick, with changing political landscapes and digital existences. Also, Reddit has come with a rather interesting theory and you should give it a read. (4) When Is It Releasing? The release date hasn't been announced for the next Matrix instalment but it's definitely not too far off since the production of the film will begin somewhere early 2020. So far, we're not sure if the other Wachowski sibling be involved in Matrix 4, although Warner Brothers seem to think the franchise is safe in Lana's hands. © NBCNews “We could not be more excited to be reentering The Matrix with Lana. She is a true visionary — a singular and original creative filmmaker — and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing, and producing this new chapter in The Matrix universe.” - said Warner Bros Picture Group Chairman, Toby Emmerich in an interview. © Warner Bros While we thought the curtains had closed on the entire Matrix franchise, we're so glad we get to see a lot more from the same universe, something every virtual geek will be really looking forward to!  Here's waiting with bated breath for one of the best sci-fi movies out there.

India Ranks 102 Out of 117 On Global Hunger Index, Behind Bangladesh, Pakistan & It's Just Sad

India's recent results in the Global Hunger Index should raise serious alarm, with a deplorable rank of 102 among 117 countries - ranking the lowest among both BRICS and South Asian countries - Pakistan ranked 94th, while Bangladesh stood at 88th and Nepal took the 73rd spot. © Concern Worldwide/Welthungerhilfe With a score of 30.3, India falls firmly within the 'serious' category of hunger. The GHI score itself is calculated by zeroing in on four different key figures -  undernourishment, child wasting, child stunting, and child mortality. © Concern Worldwide/Welthungerhilfe While general trends seem to be improving (except for wasting) according to the report, it is said that for infants in India aged 6 months to 23 months, only 9.6% are fed a 'minimum acceptable diet'. This means that less than 10 percent of the infants in India are properly fed. © Reuters Because of its large population, India's GHI indicator values have an inflated impact on the regional numbers as well. India's child wasting rate is extremely high at 20.8% - the highest wasting rate of any country in this report. © Reuters Hygiene is also a serious issue that remains at large.  “Even with new latrine construction, however, open defecation is still practiced,” the report reads. “This situation jeopardises the population's health and consequently, children's growth and development as their ability to absorb nutrients is compromised.”

5 Key Figures That Make The New Mercedes G Wagon One Cracker Of An SUV

Mercedes has an extensive portfolio in India, with something or the other for people across all ages, across budgets, and across segments. Ideally, this should allow them to offer something or the other to car enthusiasts who are looking to make their first Mercedes purchase or their loyal customers who are looking for something a bit different. © Daimler Keeping both of these groups in mind, Mercedes just launched a toned-down version of their iconic G Wagon, called the G 350d, and it seems that this is going to be one cracker of an SUV from the German automaker, at least as far as India is concerned. © Daimler Here are 5 reasons that make the new G 350d a very cleverly packaged SUV for the Indian market: 1. The New Engine © Daimler The G 350d comes equipped with the all-new Euro 6d TEMP engine, which with its straight-six configuration, is capable of producing 286 horsepower and a maximum torque of 600 Nm. Now, this may not seem that impressive considering that its a G- Wagon and some may even say that the SUV is underpowered, but the upshot is, that for the first time, we are getting a G-Wagon that is capable of averaging an impressive 10+ kilometres to the litre. 2. The Torque © Daimler The straight-six engine may not be that impressive when it comes to downright power, but it surely is one of the torque-iest ones on the Indian market. What that means is that, you can actually take this car off road, and by off road, we mean well off the road.  Mercedes claims that the high-torquing engine, along with G-Wagon's 4Matic All-Wheel Drive system, and the differential locks for the front and rear axle along with central differential, allows the G 350d to easily climb up a 45-degree incline, without breaking a sweat. Try doing that with anyone of the other SUVs on the market today, and you'll get a sense why that's actually an impressive feat. 3. The Interiors © Daimler The interiors of the G 350d are quintessential Mercedes, with the MBUX infotainment system taking the centre stage. Other than the plethora of premium materials that the G 350d will be bequeathed with as standard, potential customers will also be able to get their cars customised to their heart's extent.  If you've ever been in the G63 AMG, you will note that the interiors aren't all that different. You're still getting a spacious cabin, that will allow you to be cocooned in luxury and comfort, even if you decide to drive this behemoth through a swamp. Of course, you don't get as much carbon fibre as you would have liked, but you do get other premium materials such as brushed aluminium, and wood trimmings, along with Nappa leather. 4. The Transmission © Daimler The G 350d gets Mercedes' 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic transmission, which is managed by software that is specific to this car. This, combined with Mercedes' patent transfer box ensure that no matter what the surface or driving conditions, gear changes will be immediate. That allows the G 350d to hit 100 kmph from a standstill in just 8 secs. That's impressive, for an SUV that weighs over 2.5 tons. 5. The Price © Daimler Now, this is where things get a little wonky for the G 350d. At Rs 1.5 crores ex-showroom, a diesel car like this is expensive. You also have to consider that this is a non-AMG model, which, again is a fist for India. And at this price point, it is way more expensive than its competitors, like the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota Land Cruiser LC or even the Range Rover Sport.  At the same time though, the Wrangler and the Toyota don't hold a candle to the G-Wagon, and the Range Rover has been due for an update since ages, so we don't exactly know what it will be priced at when it finally gets one. © Daimler This makes the Mercedes G 350d take a rather unique position in the Indian luxury SUV market. Does this play well into Mercedes' long-time strategy for the Indian market where it has had a stronghold for over 5 years running now?  Only time will tell.

3 Relatable Lessons From 'Fight Club' That Are Relevant Even 20 Years After Its Release

If you boil down a film to its fundamental parts, it's really a marriage between two things - sound and visuals, both of which happen to be seeing dialogue and plot on the side. It's no secret that David Fincher happens to be a proud master of them all - a title well-earned after his commercial failure and utter cult success as the director of Chuck Palhanuik's Fight Club. That's right. We're going to be diving into that thing we're not supposed to be talking about. Through its commentary on everything from emasculated 21st century men to the modern trap of consumerist culture, this film managed to capture the ethos and very spirit of pre-9/11, urban rat-race America. 20 years on however, we're provided with an interesting viewpoint to revisit some of Fincher's best scenes, especially considering how the subject matter has evolved over time - so here's four of the film's most iconic themes, and how we ought to look at them today. Insomnia & Consumerism (We don't order furniture from catalogues anymore, for a start.) The most overt and obvious theme in Fight Club is, well, overt consumerism and capitalism. The Narrator (Edward Norton), finds himself a prisoner of his own life - blankly staring into nothingness no matter where he is and what he is doing.  At one point, The Narrator tells us 'when you have insomnia, you're never really asleep, and you're never really awake,' mirroring a very common sense of half-consciousness experienced by average people today. As he says this, the camera pans to reveal him mindlessly gazing at an infomercial for balding men which is unusual, considering 30-year-old Edward Norton's pretty full head of hair. The fact that he's so paralysed by this suggests that he's not just half-conscious due to lack of sleep, but that consumerist culture is also eating away at him. via GIPHY It's even more prevalent when you consider just how far he's distanced himself from the world and his dreary life - the very space required for Tyler Durden to sneak into existence. The lack of sleep, and said sleep replaced by an endless parade of advertising - you'll even find it right here while reading this article. There is no escape. When Life Gets Predictable While you may assume that the term 'Rationalism' is simply reliance on logic and reason, it also refers to a sociological concept - the replacement of traditions, values and emotions as social motivators with concepts grounded in logic, such as efficiency and productivity. It's pretty much impossible to avoid noticing this today - corporate email jargon and modern advertising have bleached the colours out of life for pretty much everybody. In the narrator's story, everything in his life is mass-produced and exceedingly predictable - right down to the colour of his boss' tie. It's after the narrator blows up his own apartment (while repressing the memory) and grabs a drink with Tyler, that he comes face to face with this problem. Tyler's answer? “The things you own, end up owning you.”  Mind you, Palhanuik wrote this shit down ages before the first iPhones - although Fincher did pull a fast one on Starbucks. If you're rewatching this film, try and spot all the Starbucks cups he's included in this film - there's almost one for every single scene. How Toxic Masculinity Is Born Tyler Durden's purpose, statement and general idea is made pretty clear to the audience once the Fight Club itself is established - he wants to frame consumerism as the downfall of masculinity. Some of this is made clear from the very beginning, where The Narrator is portrayed as a perfect example of the emasculated male. He feels degraded by his job, he's psychologically weak and goes to support groups to hug strangers and cry - not exactly an example of peak masculinity, according to Tyler. As the group shares stories of being cuckolded and thrown aside, we meet Bob, introduced to us in the famous 'bitch tits' scene. Bob, once a bodybuilder, literally and figuratively loses his balls to testicular cancer, along with developing pseudo-breasts due to his hormone therapy. Along with his manhood, he ends up losing his family, his career and as a result, his sense of humanity. These men seek their answer by resorting to something they can never do in their dissatisfying everyday lives - reaching for one extreme of masculinity by being really, really violent.  While Tyler ridicules the world of mass-produced masculinity, he sells them another, more visceral kind of manliness - one that changes them almost instantly. This isn't where the echo of emasculation ends, however. As the film goes on, Tyler reveals Project Mayhem - a scheme cooked up to demolish the consumerist nature of modern society. It's here that we see things coming full circle - as the men found meaning in Fight Club, Project Mayhem simply takes it away from them - this time turning them into identical, nameless soldiers willing to listen not to their bosses, but to Tyler Durden. (Note: The above clip contains a narration directly from the novel.) The emasculation is even more obvious when you take a look at Project Mayhem's punishment for interfering with the plan - straight up castration. In retrospect, this was a film destined to remain forever stuck in the 90s. It was a straight-up commercial failure during its release, and treads dangerous ground when we speak about modern portrayals of men and violence in cinema. Things don't attain cult status for nothing though, and despite every rewatch and reread of this story… there's something about blood, sweat and a penchant for chaos that resonates with every man who's sat in a cubicle, and thought about these words: via GIPHY

21 Things That Have Changed In The 21 Years Since 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' Entered Our Lives

Nothing sparked greater joy than the time when we first set our eyes on Rahul and Anjali giving us major #FriendshipGoals. No Tina or Aman stood a chance when it came to a bond such as theirs. © Yash Raj films Despite Rahul winning over his lady love, many sullen faces made it known that a whole bunch of people were rooting for Rahul and Anjali's union, regardless of the lost time, and the many changes their lives may have undergone. However, talking about changes, here's a rundown of all the things that have changed (or not) in the 21 years of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: 1. Little Anjali Turned Into A Bombshell © Instagram/Sana Saeed-Navin Dhyani We're looking at you Sana Saeed, and we love what we see! 2. The Neelam Show Has Gone Off-Air As fun as it seemed, The Neelam Show has ceased to exist outside the film. 3. The 'Friendship Band' Craze Has Died Down Millennials will vouch for the 'craze' that were friendship bands and the first Sunday of August. 4. Anjali Sharma Turned Into A Hot Mommy © Instagram/Kajol Kajol is legit one of the hottest moms in town! 5. Anjali's Thick, Lacklustre Headbands Have Become Fancy The evolution is pretty obvious, though the headband 'trend' resurfaced full-force earlier this year. 6. Ms Briganza Is So Over Mr Malhotra The pretty, short-skirt loving Ms Briganza is happy playing house with husband Parmeet Sethi, though she has shed her silly giggles for roaring guffaws on reality shows now. 7. Parzaan Dastur Outgrew His Silent Sardarji Image © Instagram/Parzaan Dastur The star counting sardarji has turned into a talented young chap. In 2017, Parzaan wrote and produced a short film titled Pocket Mummy starring actress Madhoo in a pivotal role. 8. Savita Dadi Has Happily Turned Old & Grey Having Found Rahul's Anjali The frequency of her bhajan sabha has increased manifold now that her life purpose has been served. 9. College Fests Have Moved Out Of Auditoriums & Into The Open DU Fests. Need we say more? With celeb performances and what now, fests are no longer just a 'fun-day' it's a funda. 10. Girls No Longer Have To Prove They Can Play Basketball © BCCL Let's get this straight - girls can play basketball. Hojaye match? 11. Boys And Girls Can Be Just Friends Not every girl and boy-friends have to fall for each other, and this myth has been broken enough times already. 12. Rahul's 'COOL' Necklace Is No Longer Cool Well, we already said it. 13. And For That Matter, Neither Are Those Skin-Tight Polo T-Shirts  © Yash Raj Films Let's not even think about bringing those spandex-y tees back, please. 14. Friendzone Is No Longer As Subtle Yeh hota aaya hai, aur hota rahega but people have ditched Rahul's subtle ways of friendzoning for in-your-face rejections. 15. Anjali's Short Bob Has Turned Into Trendy Long-Bob Now Most of us know at least one girl who is currently sporting this 'lewk'. 16. Exchanging Friendship Bands Has Changed Into 'Mujhse Fraandship Karogi' DMs © Yash Raj Films This evolution is real (pain in the ass). 17. Aman Has Finally Moved On From Anjali & Dated A Few Women Pssst...Iulia Vantur. 18. Tina's Popularity Has Dipped Once the talk of the town (read: college), Tina AKA Rani hasn't been very active in Bollywood in recent years. 19. Rahul Is A Father Of Three Now © Instagram/SRK Anjali finally has more siblings to chill with, because Shah Rukh Khan sure makes for an adorable father of three. 20. Rahul: “Ek Mard Ka Sir….” Sirf teen aurton ke saamne nahi, har teesri aurat ke saamne jhukne laga hai.  21. Principals Like Mr Malhotra Might Find Himself On The #MeToo List Today © Yash Raj films Mr Malhotra, all the Ms Briganza(s) are watching. Think we missed something? Let us know right away!

Lady Gaga Asked 'What's Fortnite' & People Are Like 'Someone Please Take Her Phone Away'

The game Fortnite has been a reason for a lot of discussions these days. The 'black hole' was the only thing you could see on Twitter for a couple of days. But, now that the hole has closed and the game is back. So it must be a relief for a lot of people. While mostly people who actually play the game were talking about it online, Fortnite became one of the biggest trends yesterday because of the black hole and it was everywhere on Twitter. No one could escape the tweets about it, so naturally people who don't know about it or what was happening got a little curious. Even Lady Gaga had a very important question - What's fortnight — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 15, 2019 Before anyone roasts her, it's nice she's asking questions a lot of people are afraid to ask. It's so brave of her. But, this tweet was enough for a lot of people to just collectively say - someone please take her phone away. At least someone's trying to be helpful. Good job, Ninja. Call me on the Telephone. I'll give you a Million Reasons to play. You and I. pic.twitter.com/dL6y6bJrrW — Ninja (@Ninja) October 15, 2019 Another interesting answer. pic.twitter.com/br2r50mCLv — TheIrishNightmare ï¸ (@TIrishninjas) October 15, 2019 Uhh.

This is the weirdest cross-over I've seen.

800 Of 1,800 Trees Transplanted At Aarey Forest Already Dead & 10,000 More Trees To Be Cut

The Aarey Forest has been making the headlines for the past few months, following an order that gave a green signal to the Mumbai Rail Corporation Ltd (MMRCL) to cut down trees for building a car shed.  Initially, the order allowed the MMRCL to cut down more than 3,000 trees, but after the protests led by the activists, the Supreme Court had to put a halt on the order. However, still, over 2,100 trees were cut down in the car shed construction area.  According to India Today, around 1,800 trees were supposed to be transplanted, following an order by the Supreme Court. The trees were transplanted in Mumbai only, majorly, Aarey and Sanjay Gandhi National Park.  The MMRCL had assured that during the transplantation drive, the trees will be properly taken care of and would be re-planted under proper surveillance.  #MMRC has permanently saved 1089 trees from #Metro3 #CarShed plot from #AareyMilkColony while 2141 trees were felled as per #TreeAuthority order upheld by #BombayHC. 461 trees are to be transplanted subsequently. pic.twitter.com/Nah5UFI4td — MumbaiMetro3 (@MumbaiMetro3) October 9, 2019 India Today found out that the trees that were transplanted, were tagged with laminated paper and numbers. Some of the trees were in good condition and healthy, but many others were in extremely poor condition and were nearly dead.  With many of the transplanted trees having dried out and many being dead, activists are claiming that the trees that have been re-planted are the trees that were dead in the first place.  Zoru Bathena, part of the inspection committee of the trees said, “1,800 trees were transplanted from various locations in Mumbai where Metro 3 construction is going on. The trees were taken from the metro construction side and transplanted to various places in Mumbai. One such location is in Aarey.” "When we did the last inspection, over 800 trees were already dead. Only stems can be seen. Over 50 per cent of the trees transplanted are dead. There is proper procedure which one has to follow while transplanting huge trees, which is not followed at all,” he said.  Promises kept Commitments delivered. #MMRC has planted arnd 24,000 trees across Mumbai including #AareyMilkColony and degraded areas of #SGNP. Sturdy native species like Behada,Kadamb, Karanj etc 6 - 12 inch girth & 12-15 ft height planted. 2 years efforts and results show up. pic.twitter.com/bC4TOB5Qnp — MumbaiMetro3 (@MumbaiMetro3) October 6, 2019 He also added, “My major concern is that the trees we are talking about are for Metro 3 construction. However, more metro projects are going to be under development soon so an estimate of over 10,000 trees may die over these construction projects.” Also, 38 people were arrested and over 50 people were detained by the police for protesting to save the Aarey colony. The protesters were later released as ordered by the Supreme Court.
