‘Gavaskar Didn't See His Son For Months,’ Kapil Dev Reacts To Virat Kohli’s Paternity Leave

Yes, the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli is going to become a father and has already announced that he will be taking a paternity leave in January 2021 to be with his family and the new-born child. The leave will come in the middle of the Test series of the upcoming Australia tour and will have the skipper leave his team behind to tend to family duty after the first red-ball match between the two cricketing giants. JUST IN: Virat Kohli will be granted paternal leave after the #AUSvIND Test in Adelaide. He will return to India after the first game. pic.twitter.com/EFQfajppbE — ICC (@ICC) November 9, 2020 And while something like taking a paternity leave has become more and more normal with time, it seems like everyone has an opinion to share.  Former Indian cricketers like VVS Laxman and Sunil Gavaskar have already spoken their mind and now, the 1983 World Cup-winning captain, Kapil Dev has also entered the conversation. Via video conference at HTLS 2020 Dev said: "Don’t think we could afford to go and come back. That’s for sure. Sunil Gavaskar didn’t see his son for many months. It was a different thing. Look, things change. If I talk about Kohli, when his father died, he came back playing cricket the next day. Today he is taking a leave for his baby. It’s fine, you can afford it.” © InShorts He further added that: 
"You can buy a plane and go back and come back again in three days. I feel happy and proud that today sportsmen have reached a level where they can do this. I’m happy for Virat. He’s coming back to see his family. I understand you have passion but the biggest passion is that he’s having a baby.”A lot has been said about Kohli taking a leave of absence as he becomes a father.  Dhoni missed Ziva’s birthday for national duty & Kohli himself didn’t left his team & played on the day his father died, always thought he’ll play the all important BGT especially for the challenge that series brings & for its WTC context but then this got to be his personal call https://t.co/pNUNvAdTpu — Abhishek Kumar Singh (@cricketesque) November 9, 2020 People have compared him to his predecessor, Mahendra Singh Dhoni who refused to go home to see his newborn daughter Ziva back in 2015 as the Men in Blue were in the middle of a World Cup campaign. The former skipper had said: "I have been blessed with a baby daughter. Mum and daughter both are good… but as of now I am on national duties so I think everything else can wait. The World Cup is a very important campaign."But what a lot of people also seem to have forgotten is that Rohit Sharma too took paternity leave in the final few days of 2018 while India were touring Australia for their annual Border-Gavaskar series and not a single soul batted an eye. https://t.co/EsLEjyDuI0
We are so happy for you guys @ImRo45 @ritssajdeh ️ — Rohit Sharma FanClub (@ImRo45_FC) December 20, 2018 To tag a player’s decision to choose family over a game, or choose a game over family with a ‘Right’ and ‘Wrong’ remark should be nobody’s business but the cricketers' and their family members.

Virender Sehwag Is Becoming The Arnab Goswami Of Indian Cricket Analysis & It’s Not A Compliment

There was a time when British journalist Piers Morgan tried to shame India for celebrating a silver and a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympics and former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag had talked some sense into him. Sehwag, eventually, revealed that infamous journalist Arnab Goswami had invited him to talk about his rift with Morgan and that the cricketer had refused this offer because he didn’t believe in adding fuel to the fire. We cherish every small happiness',
But Eng who invented Cricket,&yet2win a WC,still continue to playWC.Embarrassing? https://t.co/0mzP4Ro8H9 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) August 24, 2016 That was a little over four years ago. Today, if you look at Virender Sehwag talk about cricket and break down player profiles for all the world-class superstars based on their IPL performance, all that class, all the charm is gone. His single-man talk show series that he uploads from his Facebook page titled Viru Ki Baithak consists of unfunny one-liners, condescending jokes against his former teammates and opponents and unbelievably hypocritical statements when it comes to critiquing an off-form player. View this post on Instagram It is more noise than substance, more jokes over analysis, more of a comedy show than a respectable former cricketing legend talking about the game he loves (or at least used to love). When it comes to cricket, it doesn’t matter how fat or skinny a player is. As long as he is making runs or taking wickets for the team, he is a valuable asset to the squad.  However, for Sehwag, body-shaming athletes became another means to remain in the headlines.  Sehwag saying @ImRo45 VADAPAV

Viru Pa got no chill #RohitSharma #sehwag #IPL2020 pic.twitter.com/KSgQ5nDK4H — TARUN REDDY VIRAT (@tarun_reddy409) October 30, 2020 Referring to an injured Rohit Sharma as ‘vada pav’ and his Mumbai Indians replacement Saurabh Tiwary as ‘samosa pav’ got him a lot of laughs and more and more people with a lust for spicey content flocked over to his channel.  Calling names to gain popularity… where have we seen that before? And then there are the unwarranted comments that get him international fame.  Recently, Sehwag was talking about Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and his poor performance during the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League. Having played in 13 matches, Maxwell managed to put up just 108 runs and played with a strike rate 101.88. A horrible season without a doubt but to be called a “10-crore cheerleader” is simply uncalled for, especially when Sehwag himself wasn’t a bigshot for the entirety of his IPL career. © Twitter - KXIP The difference between Arnab Goswami’s show and Sehwag’s “show” is that at least Goswami comes up with controversial quotes on the spot. It is outright sad to think that Sehwag would sit in a corner and write these “zesty zings” in his well-drafted scripts before going on camera.
There is a reason why people prefer Harsha Bhogle over Sanjay Manjrekar and it definitely is not for his stinging insults.  When the quality of the content that you put out in the world is good enough, you don’t need to bank on additional aid for your audience to accept it.  One-liners and attempted humour only come into play when even the creator isn’t confident about his work and Virender Sehwag is currently well-settled in the second category.

5 Bollywood Horror Movies From 90s That Are Perfect To Watch Over Drinks With The Gang

When it comes to the horror genre, it won't be wrong to say Bollywood is still experimenting with it and there are some gems like Tumbbad which surely was a refreshing take on the genre. Horror movies are supposed to keep you at the edge of your seat and give you enough jump scares that you have an experience of your lifetime. I am someone who has no shame in accepting that I am scared of horror movies as I feel that I will find the creature I saw in the movie in my gallery or under my bed at 3 am at night. Needless to say it’s a painful job to sit next to me in a horror movie as you may step out of the theatre with some scratches on you. But, Bollywood in the 90s has given us some horror movies that made me laugh and it surely gave me the confidence that I can survive horror movies if there are scenes that are more comical than scary. As there was no CGI or VFX back then, horror movies heavily relied on bad makeup and over-dramatic acting.  Here are the five such horror movies from the past that promised to scare us but turned out to be quite funny instead. 1. Bandh Darwaza After seeing Dracula in this movie, my dark memories of getting scared by Conjuring almost instantly faded as this one really cracked me up. There’s a scene in the movie where he is trying to molest the woman he likes but he wants her to be comfortable first and then, continue his act. Well, this Dracula surely works on humanitarian grounds. 2. Veerana  This has to be my favourite on the list as it gave me a lesson of my lifetime - never give anyone a lift when you are driving on the strangest road. In this movie, a woman who looks completely lost asks a few men for a lift. They are obviously desperate to spend the night with her but who knew they had their date booked with a ghost who makes weird noises that are meant only to tickle your funny bone. 3. Purana Mandir I wonder what was the writer thinking while writing the plot of the movie. He might have wanted to write a parody on Sholay disguised as a horror movie, but the technique failed terribly. Well, the lovers either make out or fight the demon leaving behind no scope of jump scares in the process. 4. Khoon Ki Pyaasi Dayan © IMDB Yes, that’s the name of the movie from 1998. The plot of the movie was beyond logic as the tantric tells a man to sacrifice his daughters if he wants to have a great sex drive. We lost hope that the movie had anything after knowing the plot and to make it even more unbearable, the tantric’s nails and teeth were bought from the same hardware shop. You can probably watch this movie this weekend after getting drunk with your friends.
5. Khooni Murdaa If the name wasn’t enough to crack you up, Bappi Lahiri has composed the music of this masterpiece. Some college students kill an obsessive lover, who takes revenge by killing them one by one. It’s hilarious to see how he seeks revenge and the makeup of the ghost does the rest of the damage. If you’re thinking that we have improved in the 2000s, we have had movies like Alone, Raaz 3, and Haunted that continue to take the legacy of the 90s forward.

7 Of Your Mom’s Favourite Ingredients That’ll Protect Your Scalp From Pollution & Winter Chills

You’ve got amazing winter grooming tricks up your sleeve, your beard has never looked better and you’ve even
learnt how to prevent nicks and cuts while shaving. That’s brilliant. But what about your hair?  Sure, you’ll shampoo it. You may even consider using a conditioner if you get enough time. But if you truly want to keep your hair healthy during winter, pay attention to your scalp.  Before you go ahead and Google some ridiculously expensive hair care products, let's suggest some of your mom’s favourite ingredients that are powerful enough to protect your scalp from all-things bad:        1. HoneyHoney is a natural moisturiser that promotes growth and nourishes your hair from scalp to tips. A coating of this natural sweetener on hair strands can help you fight frizz, dryness, eczema, dandruff, dermatitis, psoriasis and other scalp conditions.  To offset its sticky nature, add a few drops of rice milk and coconut oil. Apply it on your hair for 15-20 minutes and then, rinse your hair with lukewarm water to add volume to your hair and strength to the roots. __ECOMPRODUCT__878__ 2. Onion ExtractAnother quick fix from your kitchen. Onion is rich in sulphur and amino acids that can give your hair a healthy shine. Applying onion juice or oil banishes dryness from the scalp and helps hair regrow which makes it even more essential for the winter season.  If you suffer from hair fall, combine onion oil or juice with honey and rose water. Apply it to your hair with the help of a cotton swab and leave it on for 45 minutes. Then, rinse your hair with an onion-ginger shampoo and lukewarm water.   __ECOMPRODUCT__315__ 3. Aloe VeraAloe vera is a natural hair softener and it works like magic when combined with a nourishing hair care ingredient.  Add some lemon juice and olive, coconut or almond oil to aloe vera gel and apply it to your hair. Give it 30 minutes and then, rinse your hair with lukewarm water. __ECOMPRODUCT__879__ 4. Mustard OilWinters without mustard oil is like summers without chilled beverages. Mustard oil is a must if you want to keep your body warm and hair healthy. It imparts shine and smoothness to your hair. Apply it to your hair and massage. Wash your hair with lukewarm water after half an hour. __ECOMPRODUCT__880__ 5. Jojoba OilThe emollient nature of jojoba oil works wonders when it comes to conditioning hair. It soothes dryness and split ends in hair shafts.  For best results, warm up the oil and massage it into your scalp in a circular motion. Leave it on for 45 minutes. Once you’ve washed and conditioned it, your hair will feel softer and appear shinier.  __ECOMPRODUCT__560__ 6. Apple Cider Vinegar A bottle of apple cider vinegar should be placed in your kitchen and another one in your shower shelf. What can we say, this natural elixir is a godsend.  The ideal hair pH ranges from 4.5-5 and the acidic pH of ACV regulates hair back to the ideal pH after it’s disturbed by shampoos and chemical-induced styling products.  To keep your scalp clean and naturally moisturised, apply diluted ACV after shampooing and wash it off with cold water after 5-7 minutes.    __ECOMPRODUCT__868__ 7. AvocadoAvocado is loaded with essential vitamins that work towards fortifying dry, damaged hair from within. When mixed with hydrating and conditioning ingredients like ripe banana or egg yolk, there’s little this oil can’t do.  Mix it with the ingredient of your choice and apply the hair mask to your hair. Keep it for 20-25 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. It’ll moisturise your scalp and smoothen and improve the elasticity of your hair strands. __ECOMPRODUCT__379__ The BottomlineOnce your hair pushes past the skin of the follicle, the cells in the strand die. While some good hair products may add temporary sheen to it, there’s not much you can do to improve its quality after hair has grown.  Which is why you need to keep a good eye on your scalp, so it can grow healthy hair from scratch.

Suryakumar Yadav Addresses Beef With Virat Kohli & Trauma Of Being Snubbed For Australia Tour

One of the biggest talking points through the duration of the Indian Premier League 2020 was Mumbai Indians player Suryakumar Yadav and his career trajectory, after being one of the most successful batsmen this season and playing some brilliant domestic cricket before the T20 tournament began. Yadav, 30, has had some good IPL seasons before but this year, he took his performance to the next level and even helped the squad win some crucial matches in the absence of his skipper Rohit Sharma a couple of times.  View this post on Instagram He even managed to stand his ground against world-class sledger and arguably the most aggressive cricketer in the world, Virat Kohli when the latter tried to get under his skin during a match between MI and Royal Challengers Bangalore.  Watching the cricketer perform at such a high level consistently, the fans of the Indian cricket team were looking forward to the Mumbai-athlete to play in national colours in the upcoming tour of Australia.   © Twitter/ESPNcricinfo But SKY was self-admittedly shocked when he didn’t get the call.  
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Yadav addressed two major takeaways from IPL Season 13 - His banter with Indian captain Virat Kohli and the disappointment of not getting selected in the national team despite having a breakthrough season. On Rivalry Against Virat Kohli: In yesterday match, Kohli came to sledge #SuryakumarYadav during the break and surya left like a gentleman, such a shameful act by virat kohli,didn't expect this from a batsman like virat#SuryakumarYadav #MIvsRCB #BCCIpolitics pic.twitter.com/AVjMN8ZNNX — 🆁🆃🅽🅳🅴🅴 🅶🆄🆃 (@rkgupta7257) October 29, 2020 “It was all very instinctive. Virat Kohli is a huge cricketing figure and he plays the game very aggressively. It was an important game for both teams and whatever happened, it did during the game. After the game, we laughed about it and he congratulated me on my batting. Virat’s brand of cricket is top class and the way he dominates world cricket is just amazing. I too look up to him. In the end, it was great to win the game.” On Getting Snubbed Before Australia Tour:  No statements for not selecting.
No celebration after scoring fifty.

He decided to bat do the talking in the middle and scored unbeaten 79 runs from 43 balls including 10 fours & 3 sixes while chasing 164 runs against RCB. Take a bow, Suryakumar - one of the best knock. pic.twitter.com/iocfZ37SGO — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) October 28, 2020 “Frankly, I was expecting to be selected this time. I was a bit disappointed when I found my name missing. I couldn’t even train that day and it was difficult to take my mind off from that dejection. Even Rohit (Sharma) asked me if I was disappointed and I told him I was. But never mind. I will wait for my chances. There is a lot of time to show my cricket abilities and make my case stronger for a national call-up. I hope I can score big in domestic games and then do well in the next IPL to catch the attention of the selectors.”

Sehwag Calls Maxwell A ‘10 Crore Cheerleader’ But His Classic Response Outweighed The Brashness

After Glenn Maxwell’s disappointing season in the Indian Premier League 2020, the Kings XI Punjab all-rounder must have known that he was going to face a lot of criticism in the days to come. However, one of the most talked-about critics of the game who has made a name for himself in the analytical department by giving his inputs in a not-so-subtle way, Virender Sehwag decided to take criticism to the next level when he called the Australian a “Rs 10-crore cheerleader”. On his Facebook series titled Viru Ki Baithak, the former Indian opener said:  "Glenn Maxwell. This 10-crore cheerleader proved costly for Punjab. And he has had a bad record of shirking work over the past few seasons. But this season he went to new extremes." He even went on to say that Maxwell just had himself "a highly-paid vacation"  Nonetheless, Glenn Maxwell once again showed that he is a perfect gentleman when he gave out his response to Sehwag’s brash comments.  View this post on Instagram The West Australian quoted the cricketer saying:   "It's ok. Viru is pretty outspoken with his dislike of me, and that's fine. He's allowed to say whatever he likes. He's in the media for such statements, so that's fine. I deal with that and move on, and take it with a grain of salt with Sehwag."  While an excellent player and a great asset for the Australian cricket team to have by their side, Glenn Maxwell’s greatest individual contribution towards the cricketer fraternity and the sports world as a whole was his courage to come out and talk about having mental health issues. © Reuters Last year, the righty went on a small break away from cricket in order to work on some mental health troubles and was lauded by the rest of the society to openly address them, instead of trying to suppress them within his mind.
That break not only allowed him to return to his team with a renewed vigour but also a strong mindset which helps him endure things like Sehwag’s unhelpful comments. © Reuters Maxwell added:
"I think I'm better equipped with dealing with those sorts of things now. I think in hindsight it was a pretty good time to go through something like that where I was able to put some groundwork in to deal with adversity. This year has certainly been a massive test of it."As far as the Indian player turned commentator is concerned, while such comments do make for an entertaining and spicy video and the fans with a taste for shade-throwing would have definitely enjoyed the content, Sehwag, who has been at the centre of a lot of useless criticism during his time as a Man in Blue, must understand the difference between what sort of criticism is constructive and what’s not.

5 Popular Bollywood Dialogues That 90’s Kids Have Surely Used In Their Common Lingo

As 90s kid, we hardly had the internet to keep us occupied. It was the movies that we watched in single theatres or on TV which heavily influenced our socio-cultural perspectives. From dressing up like them to uttering popular dialogues, we wanted to look and sound cool More than a decade later, some of these dialogues have trickled into popular memes and continue to stay fresh in our memories. We have curated a list of five such popular dialogues from the ’90s that you must have used in real life. 1. “Dosti ka ek usool hai madam – no sorry, no thank you.”
This dialogue from the 1989 movie Maine Pyaar Kiya penetrated our social circles as we couldn't wait for someone to say thank you. Well, Salman Khan made this dialogue popular and we just wanted to be associated with the movie so desperately that we would use this dialogue at every opportunity we got. 2. “Bade bade deshon mein aisi choti-choti baatein hoti rehti hai, Senorita” We can not believe it if you say that you haven’t used this dialogue from DDLJ ever in your life. Forget the 90s, this dialogue is still pretty popular among millennials. In fact, it is so popular that even the former US President Barack Obama couldn’t escape from its charm. 3. “Rishtey mein toh hum tumhare baap lagte hai, naam hai Shahenshaah!” Amitabh Bachchan was a cult figure in the 80s and 90s and this popular dialogue from his movie Shahenshah didn’t take much time to catch on. In no time, it was a part of the pop culture wherein we saw people using it whenever they got into any quarrels. 4. “Haar kar jeetne wale ko baazigar kehte hai” If you are a fan of Shah Rukh Khan, you would definitely know which movie this dialogue is from. This dialogue also became a part of the cool culture of the 90s. It surely is one of the evergreen dialogues that has been carried over to the current generations too. 5. “Mere Karan Arjun aayenge” We saved this dialogue for the end because this wins the race hands down.

Interpol Warning Politicians Of COVID-Infected Letters Proves 2020 Is A Sci-Fi Movie Gone Wrong

2020 wasn’t anything like we expected it to be at the beginning of the year. Ask anybody around you, oh I meant virtually, because physical distancing/ quarantine/ lockdown and what not, but everyone will agree that nobody has a clue where 2020 went. © Pexels It’s almost as if some cruel spell obliterated all the dreams and aspirations we bore in our hearts as we rang in the New Year. And what a year it has been! Those of us who have been lucky (and privileged) to still have a job and shelter and are in a position to put food on our table, legit have no recollection of anything besides their laptop screens and all the targets they just couldn’t seem to meet. © Reddif But now, instead of expecting some good news after eight months of surviving this deadly pandemic, Interpol has come bearing bad news for political leaders and shared that a new threat has surfaced amid the outbreak. In its latest guidelines, the international police organisation has warned law agencies in India and 193 other countries that "Covid-infected letters" might be sent to political figures and individuals.
The agency also stated that “attempts at deliberate contamination by spitting and coughing on surfaces and objects has been reported.” Given this update, the agency has advised member nations that security personnel of political figures as well as postal and front-desk workers to be made aware of the risk and precautions to be taken to tackle the threats. © Pexels We don’t know what this means for our leaders, but if things get out of hand, such letters might also end up wrecking further havoc and worsening the situation further. But one thing is for sure, 2020 is looking more and more like a sci-fi movie gone wrong in real life. Or could it be Assassin's Creed playing out in real life.

Actors Reveal Their First Salaries On Twitter Before They Became Famous & Fans Are Now Motivated

First salaries are always of paramount importance and most of us remember our first salaries as that’s the first time we ever do something on our own. Everyone starts from somewhere and even if the amount is extremely small, it changes the course of our life and gives us the biggest sense of growing up.  However, sharing first salaries recently became a trend on Twitter and people started sharing their first salaries.

MensXP May cover star, Karan Tacker has always been regarded as a fashion icon.  In fact, if one goes through his Instagram feed, one would find impeccable outfits worth taking notes from. Case in point, these looks: Karan can teach how to rock an authentic Indian outfit. View this post on Instagram Or rocking winter pastels, a skill not many possess.  View this post on Instagram Or how to clean up for a weekend date night without overdoing it.  View this post on Instagram With an established base in the TV industry, Karan is now moving to the OTT universe and we couldn't be more supportive.   We can't wait to see him in more shows like Special OPS. And now that he has started stepping out for shoots again post-lockdown, we also sometimes get a sneak-peek at some of his insane outfits.  Case in point, recently, he was spotted outside a hair salon in a rad outfit. Take a look at what he wore here:  © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani He was seen wearing a pastel pink t-shirt with a pair of light blue ripped jeans. He completed the look with a pair of high-top coke-whites. 
Now, usually, the biker aesthetic is known to be defined by dark colours like black and navy blue and leather and other thick fabrics.   However, Karan's look challenges the aesthetic and creates space for an alternate biker aesthetic.   © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani We hope to see more such non-conforming outfits from Karan  soon.

Do you remember the good looking lad from Papa Kehte Hai? Yes, we are talking about Jugal Hansraj and it seems like he has aged like fine wine.

Here are the pictures: View this post on Instagram View this post on Instagram Fans have been going gaga over his new look and have been comparing him to George Clooney. © Instagram © Instagram © Instagram Jugal was seen as a child actor in Shekhar Kapur’s 1983 film Masoom. He played Naseeruddin Shah’s son in the movie, which also starred Shabana Azmi and a young Urmila Matondkar. He might be away from the limelight but he hasn’t surely lost his charm. Speaking to Hindustan Times in a recent interview about working in Bollywood, Jugal said, “I wasn’t from the film business.

8 All-Time Favourite Indian TV Shows Which Enjoy A Cult Following That Is As Stong As ‘Friends’

90s nostalgia should officially be made into a ‘thing’. You know, those were some of the best days, no chuck that, best years we have had the chance of experiencing. It was as though the run up to the final leg of the 20th century ignited many brilliant minds in the entertainment industry and we were blessed with some of the most memorable shows ever aired on Indian television. While many people love to rave about what a gem Friends is and love going back to it every chance they get, we thought we’d curate a list of desi gems which are some of the most popular, all-time favourites on Indian TV. 1. Malgudi Days © Doordarshan If you didn’t enjoy Swami and Rajam’s escapades around the pristine southern town of Malgudi, we don’t know what your kind of enjoyment entails. Beautifully created by RK Narayan and brilliantly executed by director Shankar Nag, every episode of this show was a joy to behold!
2. CID © Sony There is a reason why desi millennials will never really get over ACP Pradyuman and inspector Abhijeet and Daya. While it was predominantly a police procedural show, it was still packed with entertainment, engaging antics and well-crafted sub-plots that kept the viewers hooked not just to the case but to every character as well.
3. Office Office © Sab TV Okay, so this may not exactly be a 20th century gem, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was one of the best things that happened to Indians at the turn of the century. This hilarious sitcom which captured the life of Mussadilal as he struggled to find his way around rampant corruption in India made us laugh some and sigh some because that’s how relatable it was.
4. Flop Show © DD National Another gem of a creation, this definitely was one of the biggest highlights of actor and comedian Jaspal Bhatti. Based on the socio-cultural struggles the aam aadmi faced at the time, this satirical comedy was a total winner not only in terms of content but also the laughs it elicited which helped thousands of middle-class households tackle their worries with a pinch of salt.
5. Dekh Bhai Dekh © DD National This brilliant show which revolved around the Mumbai-based Diwan family, gave us a glimpse of what it’s like to literally live it out in a joint family where three generations are trying to hold their own in life. With almost-perfect depiction of familial relationships, this one had everything from relationship troubles, to business problems, annoying in-laws and what not.
6. Shrimaan Shrimati © Doordarshan What can we say, these amazing shows can easily give popular sitcoms a run for their money even today. The casting of this show was so on-point, you couldn’t help but get your funny bones tickled by the many antics Keshu and Dil pulled off to uphold the holy saying which goes something like ‘love thy neighbour’s wife’. Koki and Doll were no less when it came to packing a punch.
7. Hum Paanch © ZEE TV This one needs no introduction because jitna bolein kum hai. This sitcom took entertainment to a totally different level and rolled out some of the most memorable episodes on Indian TV. A priceless show based around a father and his five daughters, Hum Paanch dealt with a number of unpopular opinions and came as a breath of fresh air which was also hilarious at the same time.
8. Tu Tu Main Main © DD Metro Who thought a saas-bahu show would make it to this list, but trust us when we say that this was nothing like what you may have seen on television in recent years. This show was in a league of its own and beautifully captured the love-hate relationship a daughter-in-law and mother-in-law share. Funny, engaging and definitely not something you could ignore or get rid of.
Let us know what else we should add to this list.

Arnab Goswami’s ‘Mujhe Drugs Do’ Mashup Has A New Version & This One Is Even Crazier

Whether you love him or hate him, you cannot ignore the man we are talking about and yes, he is none other than Arnab Goswami. His hysterical rants are famous for becoming popular memes, but who knew they'd even serve as fodder for the people who love making remixes. We all have heard budding musician, Yashraj Mukhate's remix of the news anchor’s ‘Mujhe Drugs Do’ rant. And now, another artist called Mayur Jumani has come up with a crazy version of Arnab’s rap and we cannot help but trip on it. Mayur has brought all his recent debates together, be it asking where’s Salman Khan to Mujhe Drugs Do to tracking the marijuana racket involving celebs. And we have to admit, the result is pretty hilarious. Here you go: View this post on Instagram Just like us, people on Instagram have also been tripping on it and are calling it one of the best mashups on Arnab Goswami. © Instagram © Instagram Arnab was recently in a legal soup after the Supreme Court, on 26 October, asked the Maharashtra government to submit a list of FIRs filed against the Republic TV Editor. He was even sent to jail, but he finally walked free after the support he got from his fans. To thank them, Arnab had earlier tweeted, “I feel absolutely blessed to receive the love and faith of so many people this morning. We are together in this battle, and many more. The state machinery unleashed on us is making us all stronger, every day."

Indian BTS Fans Lost It After #PMModiAtBTS2020 Started Trending But Soon Were Left Heartbroken

If you ask any BTS fan what’s their biggest dream, it would, without a doubt, be a chance to see the iconic South Korean boy band live in concert.
© Big Hit Entertainment BTS fans, also called ARMY, consider a live concert by the seven-member group their ultimate goal, as many even go to the extent of burning rather sizeable holes in their pocket and fly to other countries, just to attend the concert and the group perform live.
The Indian fans of the Billboard Award-winning group have always cherished the dream of having the seven boys tour India for a concert, but sadly, there have been no developments on that front, so far. © Reuters However, today, the BTS Army in India pretty much collectively lost it after #PMModiAtBTS2020 started trending.
Twitter was soon flooded with the reactions of puzzled, stunned and hyperventilating fans who initially assumed that the hashtag had something to do with Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting BTS, or maybe even BTS coming in India. © Reuters However, in a rather quick development, the fans discovered that the trending hashtag had absolutely nothing to do with BTS, but rather PM Modi inaugurating the Bengaluru Tech Summit. Ergo, the BTS hashtag!
Damn, talk about crushing purple hearts! (Purple is believed to be the represtational colour of BTS) However, the ARMY, known for their quick with and on-point sense of humour, soon hijacked the hashtag as their own and started flooding Twitter with memes and posts related to BTS: WAIT WHAT!

5 Reasons Why The 'Wonder Woman 1984' Trailer Has Increased The Excitement For The Movie Even More

The wait is over, well, almost. After going almost an entire year without any of the previously highly anticipated movies of the year, we finally have a release date for at least one of them. Wonder Woman 1984 is finally releasing on Christmas day and hopefully, we won't have to wait much longer after that for its release in India. © Warner Bros Pictures And, to amp up the excitement for the movie even more, the latest trailer has done a great job to psyche up the fans.
From kickass fight scenes to a new for her to tackle, here are some of the takeaways from the new trailer. 1. More focus on Diana’s childhood © Warner Bros Pictures A little Diana, looking as fierce as ever, all ready to fight. Looks like the movie will show more from her childhood and honestly, who doesn't want to see more of formidable women kicking ass.
More character background and history, especially for a character like Diana, is always welcome. 2. The creation of Cheetah, showing a new kind of Good-to-Bad villain © Warner Bros Pictures Friends to foe will be a great plotline because it will be really interesting to see how it plays out. Moreover, the glimpse of the fight scene we got already look pretty cool.
While the Cheetah is kinda creepy to look at, let's see how good of a villain Barbara is against Diana. 3. Steve’s sense of humour is still intact © Warner Bros Pictures Chris Pine is really climbing up the 'best Chris of Hollywood' list and him as Steve is a big, big advantage for him. After seemingly dying in the first movie, he's back and it really looked like Diana saw a ghost when she saw him.
Can't wait for the explanation behind his survival, and at lease, he's still as funny as ever. 4. The epic clash between Wonder Woman & the Cheetah © Warner Bros Pictures As mentioned above, the friends to foe storyline will obviously be quite entertaining and I'm already predicting that the final show down between Wonder Woman and Cheetah will be worth it.
5. Parachute Pants © Warner Bros Pictures "Does everybody parachute now?" Well, yes apparently.
Chris Pine's outfit and his confusion over these parachute pants is already pretty hilarious, and the fact that he's wearing a fanny pack before that makes it all the more better.

Kunal Kemmu Stepped Out In A Date Night Outfit That’s Perfect For A Date In The 'New Normal'

With a line-up that includes films like Lootcase and Malang, Kunal Kemmu has had a rather exciting year in terms of his film releases.   While a major chunk of the year was dormant for most of the time, courtesy of the Coronavirus, now that Bollywood has resumed functioning again, Kunal Kemmu has started stepping out for work as well. View this post on InstagramWith upcoming films like Go Goa Gone 2 and Golmaal 5, it looks like Kunal Kemmu is back at it again.   However, now that we have been spotting him more, it's worth pointing out that he has been leaving no stone unturned when it comes to his fashion aesthetic each time he steps out.  From combining street style aesthetics and wild accessories to turning heads with the biker aesthetic, he's done it all in the past. Recently, Kunal turned around a basic outfit with vibrant accessories. Take a look here:  © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Kunal was seen wearing a solid white t-shirt with a pair of jeans, an underrated outfit combination that can go a long way. He also wore a block-printed cloth mask and a snapback. 
He completed the look with a pair of desert boots in beige. © Viral Bhayani We believe that with the strict COVID-19 precautions one has to follow each time they step out, a simple outfit can go a long way in keeping things practical, fashion-wise.
Take a cue from Kunal Kemmu for your next date night outfit to keep things safe and comfortable at the same time, while also looking on-point.

Pakistani Man’s 3 Wives Are Helping Him Find A New Bride & ‘Dil Mange More’ Just Got A New Meaning

In a rather inexplicable development, the three wives of a 22-year-old Pakistani man are helping him find a fourth bride. Go figure, huh?
Apparently, there is also a very specific condition that the fourth wife’s name should start with an ‘S’.  The man named Adnan is a resident of Sialkot and got married when he was just 16-years-old and was a student at the time.  © Daily Pakistan When he married for the second time, he was 20 and the third wedding took place last year. © Daily Pakistan The father of five, who is now on the lookout for a new bride, has a condition that his fourth wife’s name should begin with ‘S’ so that it matches with the initials of the rest of his wives. © Daily Pakistan Interestingly, his three wives Shumbal, Shubana and Shahida have now joined the hunt for Adnan's fourth bride. © Daily Pakistan When asked about how he manages his expenses of all his wives he told Daily Pakistan, “We stay in a house, which has six bedrooms, a drawing-room, and a storeroom. I have no problem in managing expenses as I am of the opinion that finances flourished after my first marriage." 
The expenditure per month for his family is between a lakh to one and a half lakh Pakistani Rupees. The three women, apparently, are on great terms and get along really well with each other. However, the only complaint they have is that Adnan does not spend enough time with each of them.  Check out the full interview here:  Honestly speaking, we are quite taken aback at how he is managing three women at the same time, who are clearly very happy with him. Well, to each his own...

Sushant Divgikar On How To Stand Up Against Discrimination And Dealing With Bullies

Strong, muscular, tall, macho, suave - we wouldn't blame you if you thought we were describing a man. The image associated with men has always inclined towards the physical aspect of the balance rather than the mental or even emotional one. Words like sensitive, compassionate, empathetic, woke have been used rather modestly when it comes to men. A man has been perceived rather unidimensionally for ages now.  To reignite the conversation on International Men's Day and actually understand the nuances of mental health from the horse's mouth, we got in touch with men from various walks of life. It's been commendable to see each of these stars letting us inside their darkest moments and how they overcame them, breaking stereotypes, and proving that it's okay for a man to feel weak and vulnerable. This is Sushant Divgikar’s story. A drag icon, a performer, a reality TV star, Mr Gay 2014, Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia and much more, Sushant Divgikar a.k.a Rani KoHeNoor may seem like someone who has done it all, but, in some ways he is just getting started. As a content creator, Sushant is fearless. He is unapologetically himself. And unafraid to speak his mind.  © shopper's stop Where did you grow up? How was it growing up as a queer kid? Did it come with its own set of challenges?
I was always a very expressive kid. I was always an overachiever. I was a national level swimmer and I was the sports caption. So, I beat all the boys to it, that too in an all boys school. All in all, I didn’t stress on the fact that I was different. There were a lot of kids growing up that were different, and that is their journey, like this is mine. As an ‘influencer’ I don’t like the idea of going around telling people how to live their life, or how they should come out. I honestly believe that the worst thing to do is give suggestions, and I’m an industrial psychologist by degree. I have realised that the worst thing to do for someone is to give advice. Someone sitting in say … Nagaland may not have the same issues as me. So, for me to sit here, in Bandra West, and these suggestions are very fake and unbecoming of me. I’m not living my life to inspire people. That’s not my motto. Of course I love to break the glass ceiling, but that’s because I live life on my own terms. I’m just the way I am. And, that’s the only way I know how to. That in itself in a political statement in our country. And, if you don’t want to, just change the channel! Did you ever face any form of bullying? In school or college or at work? How did it impact your mental health? How did you deal with it? Yes, I won’t call it bullying but name calling happens everywhere. Regardless of whether you are gay or straight or of any sexual orientation, for any child, every child has to go through some sort of teasing. And this happens because it comes from one’s own insecurities. Unfortunately, this happens because through our films and TV shows and pop culture references we make fun of people who are away from the norm, and because of our absurd standards of beauty, technically everyone ends up being bullied or teased at some point of their lives. © Sushant Divgikar Of course, I have been called all sorts of names as well, not just at school or college, but also at the workplace. Even today, fellow co-workers call me all sorts of names. Not that it bothers me, it just shows what their upbringing is like and how they are insecure about themselves. Well, I’m just getting recognition for the work I do. I don’t even need to glorify these people by giving them any sort of attention, so all these people can bark while I collect my awards. 
Even as a kid, I could protect myself well. All of my brothers taught me how to fight and protect myself. And I feel every child needs to know how to protect themselves if they are put in that sort of a situation. I used to whack people who used to say something unparliamentary to me because that’s how I protected myself. Unfortunately, there are kids who can’t protect themselves and for them I want to say, go out, seek help. It doesn’t make you weak if you ask for help. Learn to protect yourself, because in some situations there might not be people who’d be able to help you but always know that if you ask for help, you’ll get it. I am sorry if this comes across as condoning physical violence, but I’m not going to wait for somebody to bring me justice. Or if tomorrow, something happens to my niece, I would want her to fight back if somebody tries to molest her. I’m not going to take the law into my hand and kill someone, but I need to protect myself. But we need to empathise with the bullies rather than get angry with them because we need to understand that this comes from a place of extreme toxicity and they also need help. Do you recall any specific incident of bullying that you would like to share with us? © Sushant Divgikar I was about 12 and a senior said something really nasty to me. I turned around and he was so tall that I jumped on to him and slapped his face without thinking about the repercussions. But then he got so embarrassed that someone so junior to him slapped him in front of everyone that he ran. He didn’t come back to hit me. Everyone agreed that he deserved what he got. And that’s what you need to make clear - you need to show the bully you are not weak and some repercussion will take place. 
Even when I got into college and then started working in the entertainment industry, there were a lot of incidents. Anyone who thinks the entertainment industry is all butterflies and rainbows is unfortunately mistaken. But it’s not just the entertainment industry, there’s discrimination in all vocations. I have faced a lot of discrimination in the industry too but thankfully, there are a lot of good people too who have always believed in me. I’m really thankful to my mentors too who have held my hand in this journey and said it doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, man, woman or transgender; you are talented and that’s what matters.  Speaking of the entertainment industry, could you highlight the problems plaguing it and how you’ve managed to successfully navigate your way through it? This industry is tough and very cut-throat, so if you are not thick skinned, you will perish. But I think it goes for any industry, whether you are in the forces, in the government, an actor, an artist, a drag queen. Because unfortunately, realistically speaking, the world is not a very kind place and people will have a lot of opinions on you when you’re in the public domain. So, concentrate on the people who give you positive vibes. Let’s be honest, you’re not going to change people’s perspective because there’s Google now. It’s not your duty to educate people because if someone can use their phones to make a nasty comment they can surely use it to gain knowledge about things they are so blissfully unaware about.  Back in the day, you used to get a call (for Bigg Boss), and you’d go and meet the channel. So, I was very nervous and shy, like a very good kid from Bandra. And, I didn't know the tricks of the trade. So, my publicist called me and said why aren’t you being your fierce sassy self. I said I’m not going to be OTT, and clap my hands. I just can’t do it. This is how I am, and there’s a reason it’s called Reality TV. So, they called me back and I said exactly this, and in Hindi, and they got me on Bigg Boss. The representation of a queer person, minding his/her own business and living their true self on TV is still what I stand for. It may not be masala, or abuse, but at the end of the day, from my season, how many of the men are you interviewing right now? That’s the question! What is your opinion on pronouns for different genders and what are you comfortable with? I realised that I was gender fluid after 29 years and I thought it was important for me to put out my preferred pronouns out there. I’m comfortable with all three pronouns - He, She, They. So, I don’t think anyone can misgender me, because I’m comfortable with the synergy of male and female energy. This is something I’m okay and comfortable with. Other people should put out what their preferred pronouns are (referring to the popularity of pronouns being used on Instagram bios and email signatures) so that there is no ambiguity. Also, we are in 2020, so I would rather people talk about my art, and the kind of person I am, rather than my gender or my sexual orientation.  © Sushant Divgikar It’s wonderful to see you present your unapologetic self in front of the world. What is it that you want your audience to know about yourself?
When I was on TV, I didn’t have too many references to look upto, so I wanted to be that reference. And I want people to understand that I’m the reality and not the stereotype we’ve been conditioned to all these years. So, when I started breaking this 11 years ago on television, I started living this reality. It's been a rollercoaster ride over the years, with lots of ups and downs, and with a lot of nasty people, but eventually I was on the cover. And the naysayers, well let’s just say, they can keep talking and I will just keep doing it. And, that’s the tea!

SRK, Salman Might Join Aamir Khan In 'Laal Singh Chaddha' & People Are Already Getting 90s Vibes

Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir and Kareena Kapoor Khan, is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ Hollywood classic, Forrest Gump. The film has been in the headlines ever since it has been announced. In the movie, we are getting to see Aamir as a Sikh guy and people have been waiting to watch him on the big screen as his look from the movie was very well received. The film will span over five decades in the life of the main character. View this post on InstagramThe exciting part about the movie is that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan will be seen in cameos for Aamir’s movie. Fans have a reason to celebrate as three Khans are finally coming together on the big screen. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Shah Rukh discreetly shot for the cameo in Delhi last month.  A source told the daily, “The screenplay weaves in iconic moments from each decade and since we love our matinee idols, Chaddha’s journey would be incomplete without certain top stars. So, during this journey of self-discovery. Aamir lands on the sets to Shah Rukh around the release of DDLJ and sharing his personal experiences, engages with the wonder world. He’ll go back to 1995 and look like a younger version of himself with the use of prosthetics and VFX.” The report further stated that Aamir has also been trying to lock Salman for the movie. Salman too will add the 90s flavour as he will reportedly play Prem. “His Prem wooed the audience in the ’90s, from Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hai Koun! to Hum Saath Saath Hai and Aamir is keen to get Salman back as Prem in his social dramedy. There’s a track set in 1989 that depicts a change in audience taste, from action to romance, and a craze around Salman. There are expected to finalize the details soon,” added the source. While there’s no official announcement yet, people are already celebrating the big news. Bollywood Biggest Superstars

Aditya Roy Kapur's Candid Take On Masculinity & Glamour, Post An Experiment With Advanced Makeup

Years ago, if someone mentioned ‘men’ and ‘make up’ in the same sentence for the topography of the Indian subcontinent, then one would assume that to be a joke. However, today the conversation has shifted towards normalising a lot of things which were probably ‘normal’ already but courtesy the dynamics of societal behaviour and perceptions, a paradigm shift took longer than it should have. Make up is no more associated with a single gender. It definitely doesn’t undermine or dent anyone’s masculinity nor does it challenge the norm of what ‘manly’ means. On the occasion of International Men’s Day, we decided to go down memory lane and reopen the conversation around men wearing makeup which was our core discussion with Bollywood actor Aditya Roy Kapur last year. © MensXP Why is beauty, and by extension, make up, a feminine thing? It clearly is a man-made concept, because if we take a close look at the animal kingdom, males are often more colourful and more 'beautiful', as compared to females; the best example being the majestic peacock. Also, from a more inclusive and 'woke' perspective, why should beauty be treated in binaries? Be it men/women, masculine/feminine, gay/straight – why can't everyone just embrace beauty the way they want to, without worrying about whether it fits into the moulds of the society? These are some of the questions that burned bright, aflame, against the highlighted glow up of the contoured cheek bones of a perfectly heterosexual Kapur.
"I think India is ready for it, absolutely. Wear make-up if you want to. Wear whatever you want to. It's a free country, and paying heed to uncalled for judgments and opinions will only hinder your personal growth, sense of fulfillment, and most importantly, happiness," quips Aditya. He also agrees that the pace of make-up related consciousness trickling down to the masses is painfully slow when compared to, say, clothing and grooming of hair and beards. Kapur is forthright enough. He owns up to the fact that despite his rather novice footing in terms of make-up and male beauty in general, he fails to understand the hullabaloo over something as harmless as a few products and colours on a man's face. "Really, what's the big deal? What is this never-ending debate on whether make-up is masculine or feminine? I think make-up is just make-up. It's something you put on your face to appear a certain way, like in my case, whatever the script demands. Whether I put on an eyeshadow or a kajal or whatever, it doesn't define whether I'm masculine or feminine. At least no one thinks so when Johnny Depp does it. I fail to understand how putting on make-up makes anyone less of a man," he says.

Here's How You'll Be Able To Run The iOS Apps You Own On Apple's New M1 Macs

Apple's new M1 chip-powered MacBooks are looking very promising in terms of performance.  We haven't had a chance to use one yet but we're very good things about them so far. The new MacBooks can also run any iOS apps that you may have purchased or downloaded on your iPhone or iPad. It's not easy to get all these apps working and you'll have to follow a bunch of steps before you get it running. That being said, it's totally doable and works well with most apps. © YouTube/The Everyday Dad To get them running, you need to get the app files, which are simply packages with the IPA extension. These files also need to be associated with your Apple ID, so you can't just share them around.
You'll be using a Mac app called iMazing to directly download purchased IPA files to your Mac. Simply double click them and they install into your applications folder like any other app so long as your Mac and iPhone are on the same Apple ID. Here's the step by step process that we were able to find on Reddit - · Plug-in device to Mac with iMazing running · Select “Apps" for the iPhone plugged into your Mac · Select “Manage Apps” in the tabs at the bottom   · Select “Library” in the manage apps screen · Download the apps you want · Right-click on the downloaded app in the list -> Export IPA · Double-click the .ipa file on an M1 Mac to run install it. © Apple It's worth pointing out that a lot of these apps are still not ready to run on macOS, so do expect some inconsistencies. Some of them may not work as intended while others may completely refuse to even work. 
We think it's still worth a try because, why not?

3 Ways Irrfan Inspired Pankaj Tripathi To Be A Better Actor Prove Why He Calls Him His ‘Guru’

Irrfan Khan is not just an actor but an emotion to his fans. People loved him for the iconic roles that he gave us over years and it’s hard to wrap our head around the fact that we won’t see him on the big screen ever again. It felt like a personal loss as Irrfan was surely one of the actors that many people took inspiration from.  View this post on Instagram His legacy is far from forgotten though. And Pankaj Tripathi is one such person who is still distraught and coping with the loss as for him, Irrfan was his guru and inspired him immensely. Pankaj had appeared in Irrfan’s final film, Angrezi Medium. In an interview with DNA, Pankaj spoke fondly of Irrfan and said the Maqbool actor is perhaps the only Indian actor whose every film he has seen.  View this post on Instagram And here's how Irrfan inspired him: 1. Pankaj felt that Irrfan was doing something different from others. “I think he was the only Indian actor whose every film I’ve seen. I felt like he was doing something different and this is the impact acting should have,” said Pankaj. 2. He has learnt a lot from Irrfan’s performances in Haasil, Maqbool, The Warrior, and Paan Singh Tomar. He said, “I’ve always been inspired by Irrfan’s performances as an actor. He has had a huge impact on my life, especially with his performances from Haasil, Maqbool, The Warrior, and Paan Singh Tomar.”
3. Pankaj always wanted to follow Irrfan’s route and impact the audience the way the legendary actor did. “My guru and also my senior from the National School of Drama, I have always wanted to impact audiences the way he does. His contribution has been greatly acknowledged in Indian Cinema and my role in this film is almost like my ‘guru dakshina’ to him,” he’d said. It’s heartening to see how Pankaj is keeping Irrfan’s legacy alive and we are proud of the fact that we have such genuine people in the industry.
