Gaming Giant EA Hacked & Some Of The Most Important Data From Games Like FIFA Stolen

Gaming giant EA’s data has been breached by hackers and they have downloaded the source code of games such as FIFA 21 and other titles that use the Frostbite engine.  The engine is also used for games such as the Battlefield franchise and other high-profile games such as Madden.  The breach was first discovered by Vice and it reported that 780GB of data was stolen. EA has assured that no player data has been stolen as a part of the breach.  © Reuters "We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen," an EA spokesperson said in a statement.
"No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy," she added. EA publishes some of the biggest games including annual sports franchises that net the company billions of dollars in revenue each year.  The source code of a game is usually a version of the code that easier to read and understand than the end version in a finished product. The source code can be used by hackers or to the highest bidder by reverse engineering some of the most popular gaming mechanics.  © Electronic Arts In the case of Frostbite, the source code of the engine is used to develop both Battlefield and sports games like FIFA. Frostbite is EA’s proprietary engine that is a powerful game creation tool that can now be copied by the highest bidder. The stolen source code may also result in willing developers to create cheat codes and hacks for games, including the ones that require micro-transactions. 
This is not the first time a popular game developer has been targeted for breaches.  In February, Cyberpunk and The Witcher developer CD Project Red also suffered a ransomware attack which led to the source code of their engine being leaked online just last week.  Japanese developer Capcom also suffered a ransomware attack which may have revealed the personal information of up to 350,000 users.

‘Missed Out On A Lot,’ Dravid Shares Own Experience That Led To His ‘Unique Coaching Style’

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently revealed their second string of Indian cricketers who will be representing the nation in ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka on foreign soil, while the first string will be in the United Kingdom preparing for their Test series against the hosts. Despite creating a massive roster of over thirty international-level cricketers to be split into two teams, each of which would be capable of going toe-to-toe with the rest of the cricketing world, the talent pool this country enjoys, seems to be endless. India Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan (C), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (VC), P Shaw, D Padikkal, R Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, M Pandey, H Pandya, Nitish Rana, Ishan Kishan (WK), S Samson (WK), Y Chahal, R Chahar, K Gowtham, K Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, V Chakravarthy, D Chahar, N Saini, C Sakariya — BCCI (@BCCI) June 10, 2021 And while hundreds and thousands of people may be involved bringing up such world-class athletes from the grassroots level, one man who trained the best of the best at the U-19 and India A level not too long ago, must be recognised for catapulting them to the next level - Rahul Dravid. The most successful coach in the history of Indian cricket to have tutored junior players and the India A squad, Dravid had established one rule: ‘If you were selected in the 15-man India A squad, I will make sure you get to play.' View this post on Instagram Such a rule goes against the common following of any other typical coach, who would stick to the Playing XI if that meant winning matches for him. Dravid, on the other hand, gave his own example to help us understand this unique coaching style of his: "I tell them upfront, if you come on an A tour with me, you will not leave here without playing a game. I've had that personal experience myself as a kid: going on an A tour and not getting an opportunity to play is terrible," Dravid ESPNcricinfo's The Cricket Monthly. View this post on Instagram "You've done well, you scored 700-800 runs, you go, and you don't get a chance to show what you're good at. And then you're back to square one from the selectors' point of view, because the next season you have to score those 800 runs again. "It is not easy to do that, so there is no guarantee you'll get a chance again. So you tell people upfront: this is the best 15 and we are playing them. This is not about the supposed best XI. At U-19, we make five-six changes between games if we can," he said.

Manoj Bajpayee Was Once Humiliated By A Journalist & Here’s What He Did

Actor Manoj Bajpayee, who was recently praised for his performance in The Family Man 2 recalled a time when a journalist ignored him at an event. The incident took place a few years ago when a was going through a rough patch in his professional life. Manoj also expressed how he felt bad for a couple of seconds and then he quickly realized that he is just ‘not content’ for the journalist and moved on. He also said that everyone should embrace failure in the same way they embrace success. View this post on Instagram Speaking to radio host Siddharth Kanna, Manoj said that he was attending an event and a journalist was present there, capturing guests on video and was also talking to them.
He said, “I was going through a very rough patch at that time. Saare journalists bhi gayab ho gaye the, offers toh gayab ho hi gaye the (Not only did the offers disappear but the journalists too).Aisa please mat karna kisi ke saath, bhaiya, bohot bura lagta hai (Don’t do this with anyone else, it feels really bad).” View this post on Instagram He added, “Jab main apne aap ko taiyaar kar raha hoon ki bhai ab yeh mujhse baat karega (When I was getting myself ready to talk to him), he turned his back to me as if he didn’t see me and he told the cameraman, ‘Yeah, yeah, that’s alright. Just switch it off now’. It kind of bit me for five seconds. After that I realized, nahi hai, ab woh samay chala gaya tera (your time has gone), you are not content for him. And I moved on. But I always remember that, not for any other reason but that when failure or downfall comes, you should be ready to accept it, embrace it as you embrace and accept your success. You should have the ability to treat it in the same fashion, as a part of your life.”  Fans loved him in The Family Man 2. And now his humility has won us over too. What do you think?

'Don't Carry Poor News' Ashwin Calls Out Misinformation And Fans Love Every Bit Of It

India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, known for his variations, refuted the reports which claimed that he wanted ICC to do away with the current 15-degree arm bend rule for the bowlers. Ashwin quote-tweeted a news article and urged media organisations to stop carrying "such poor news". The veteran off-spinner further added that he would never say such a thing and explained that the only purpose of his YouTube videos is for the audience to understand cricket better. "Really?? Pls don’t carry wrong stuff!! I will never say such a thing," tweeted Ashwin who is the third-most successful Indian spinner of all-time in Test cricket. Really?? Pls don’t carry wrong stuff!! I will never say such a thing. — Mask up and take your vaccine🇮🇳 (@ashwinravi99) June 10, 2021"Wrong wrong wrong!! My channel is done for all the right reasons and audience to know cricket better. If you can’t get such basic stuff right in translation, pls don’t carry such poor news," wrote Ashwin. Wrong wrong wrong!! My channel is done for all the right reasons and audience to know cricket better. If you can’t get such basic stuff right in translation, pls don’t carry such poor news. — Mask up and take your vaccine🇮🇳 (@ashwinravi99) June 10, 2021Ashwin is currently in England for the World Test Championship final against New Zealand which will be followed by a five-Test series against the Joe Root-led side.

The off-spinner, one of the most active Indian cricketers on social media, never shies away from calling a spade a spade and always gives back to his critics the taste of their own medicines and his fans love every bit of it. Good job Ashwin sir. Frauds and rumour-mongers should be exposed like this. — sohom ४ loki era (@AwaaraHoon) June 10, 2021I think you didn't give them time for an interview🤣🤣SO they framed their own story it seems — Aswin.V (@v_aswin) June 10, 2021

Don’t know where these things crop up! — jeyanthkrishnan (@jeyanthkrishnan) June 10, 2021
Recently, cricket commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, in a video ESPNcricinfo video, raised his concern with people describing Ashwin as an 'All-Time Great'. "Ravichandran Ashwin, with due respect to him, I think he's a great guy at what he does, but when people start talking about him as one of the all-time greats, I have a few problems with that," said Manjrekar. View this post on Instagram"One basic problem that I have with Ashwin is that when you look at SENA, the countries for batsmen and bowlers, places where Indians find themselves outside their comfort zone - it's amazing that he doesn't have a single five-wicket haul. Not one five-wicket haul in all these countries," he said in the video.

"The other thing - you talk about him running through sides on Indian pitches, when pitches are suited to his kind of bowling. But in the last four years, (Ravindra) Jadeja has matched him with wicket-taking ability throughout a series. ‘All- time great’ is the highest praise & acknowledgement given to a cricketer. Cricketers like Don Bradman, Sobers, Gavaskar, Tendulkar, Virat etc are all time greats in my book. With due respect, Ashwin not quite there as an all-time great yet. #AllTimeGreatExplained — Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) June 6, 2021"So, Ashwin is not a guy who soars above the others. And interestingly, in the last series against England, Axar Patel got more wickets than Ashwin on similar pitches. That is my problem with accepting Ashwin as an all-time great." Not the one to back off so easily, the seasoned off-spinner used a cheeky meme with a dialogue from Tamil movie Anniyan to mock the former cricketer's analysis of his career and he was hugely supported by the fans all over social media. Facing the heat after Ashwin's retaliation, Manjrekar expressed shock how even a simple and straightforward analysis of his turns into a big issue on social media.
Also Chaari, my heart aches to see simple, straightforward, cricketing assessments kick up a fuss these days https://t.co/7r7SNqpQq3 — Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) June 8, 2021

Pride month encourages everyone to come together and is dedicated is raise the LGBTQ voices and culture.  The worldwide celebration includes parades, performances, theatre and several other celebrations. Amid the pandemic, while it came to a standstill, some people are celebrating it in a different manner. © iStock One such example is of this father-son duo. 
Recently, Caden Wyatt 15, came out as gay and he did so with his dad on his side. It's also the first time, the family has hung the Pride flag outside their house to show their support for the son. © iStock The simple act of John Wyatt, 45, has now gone viral on TikTok. 
He took to social media platform and announced to the neighbours and millions of TikTok users about his son being gay.  He put Lady Gaga's Born This Way in the background. In a matter of four days, the video garnered a lot of comments, praise and massive support. © Twitter/Buzzfeed Caden, in an interview, mentioned that he is very lucky to have such supportive parents since he knows not many people are as lucky as he is. 
The family lives just outside of Tulsa, in Owasso. While they had a conservative mindset before their son came out, it gradually changed as they observed that their son might be gay.  John said, "That’s when we really started hugging [the community], because we knew our son was gay, and at any moment he could come out of the closet." © Twitter/Buzzfeed The flag is an 'Allied flag' that's raised outside their house. It has the letter 'A' on huge black and white striped background. Caden also has the pride flag in his room. He believes that the flag will show that his family encourages the LGBTQ community.
He said, "I want people to know that my parents are behind them, and so am I.”  Some people on TikTok objected the flag, saying it puts focus on cisgender and straight people. John then explained in the follow-up videos that the black and white bars represent the straight and cisgender community, allies but the rainbow colours in the letter 'A' promotes the LGBTQ community.  He mentioned that he had researched about the flag and wasn't promoting any wrong information. Many people commented on the video, saying how they wish their parents would accept their sexuality. John also said that he hopes this flag is a reminder to everyone that no one is alone in this journey. John knew that Caden won't be able to come out so boldly, but he was glad to see his son finally opened up about his sexuality.  Acceptance is all it takes and it's good to see that more and more parents are welcoming their kid's identity just as they come.

5 Hits & MIsses As BCCI Announces 2nd Team India In Shikhar Dhawan’s Captaincy For Sri Lanka

In a pilot project, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has finally revealed the second string of their international squad which will be touring Sri Lanka for a three ODI and three T20I series in July. While the main roster of the top-tier Men in Blue, which is being captained by Virat Kohli, will be in England sandwiched between finishing the World Test Championship and playing the hosts in a five-match Test series. NEWS : The All-India Senior Selection Committee picked the Indian squad for the 3-match ODI series & the 3-match T20I series against Sri Lanka in July. #TeamIndia

Details https://t.co/b8kffqa6DR pic.twitter.com/GPGKYLMpMS — BCCI (@BCCI) June 10, 2021 So, in order to work out a schedule and catch up on the tours, the BCCI had to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a second-team was announced under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan to take care of business against the Lions. Here are the five hits and misses in the second Team India announced by the BCCI: 1. Devdutta Paddikal Debuts - Hit! View this post on Instagram When the BCCI selectors talk about how the Indian Premier League has zero impact on their job while picking a player for an international squad, that’s about as true as the earth being flat.  Paddikal was in other-worldly form during the first leg of IPL 2021. His confidence to open big and continue to score at a high rate played a crucial role in giving Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore, an ideal start to the season. He’d most definitely be a top-order gem for the new team. 2. No Ravi Bishnoi - Miss! View this post on Instagram The hot-headed youngster had proven his worth as a competitor and a leggie. While a little rough around the edges, Bishnoi’s skill-set has stunned some big names in the league, and the U-19 World Cup he had last year, only added to his worth as a player. Unfortunately, the problem of too many good options continues to haunt the selectors, even after forming an entirely new team that allows 15 additional players access to international-level cricket. However, Bishnoi’s time is around the corner for sure. 3. Vice-Captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar - Hit! View this post on Instagram When the first string of Indian players was announced for the WTC championship and the England series, Bhuvi’s name not being on the list led a majority of the fans left disappointed, especially when the English pitches would have favoured the pacer’s bowling style. Nonetheless, the last few years have not been kind to the 31-year old’s health and he’s been out with one injury or the other. Keeping him restricted to limited-overs cricket may be the temporary solution. Also becoming the deputy in command isn’t so bad either, no? 4. Manish Pandey Returns - Miss!Ashish Nehra on Manish Pandey's Knock pic.twitter.com/ZXpENTzJl4 — RVCJ Media (@RVCJ_FB) April 16, 2021 Manish Pandey is the kind of guy you’d feel sorry for as an individual but still, when it comes to the betterment of the team, he’s just not it. Known to not adapt to the pressure, the statistics are against him far and beyond. For instance, 11 out of the 14 times Manish Pandey played 30+ balls, his IPL squad, SunRisers Hyderabad has lost. While it is encouraging to see the middle-order hitter get another shot at international cricket, his future in the squad is dangling by the weakest thread at the moment, especially with the kind of talent pool already standing in line behind him. 5. Sanju Samson Gets Another Shot - Hit! View this post on Instagram Much like Pandey, Samson hasn’t capitalized on most of the international cricket opportunities that have been presented to him in the past. A six on the first ball and a wicket on the second - the trend has been alive for some time now. However, unlike Pandey, Samson has managed to adapt to the circumstances and has even stepped up as a leader for the Kerala squad and also the Rajasthan Royals. While Rishabh Pant continues to improve as the leading wicket-keeper and Wriddhiman Saha slowly fading out, this might just be the chance Samson needs to establish himself in the international circuit as well.

‘Haseen Dillruba’ Trailer: People Already Declare Taapsee, Vikrant & Harshvardhan’s Movie A Hit

After Manmarziyaan and Judgementall Hai Kya, you have an idea that if Kanika Dhillon is on board as a writer, the movie will not disappoint and she always brings something new to the table.  Haseen Dillruba’s trailer starring Tapsee Pannu, Vikrant Massey, and Harshvardhan Rane is finally out and Kanika has raised the bar even higher.  © Eros International It has drama, humour, mystery, and all the elements that will make the movie an interesting watch.
Filmmaker Aanand L Rai is producing the movie through his banner Colour Yellow Production in collaboration with Eros International and Himanshu Sharma.  He had earlier said, “Haseen Dillruba is a murder mystery within a twisted love story, a genre we have not explored before. Really looking forward to entertaining and engage the audience with this edgy script.” © Eros International After watching the trailer, we truly agree with what Rai had mentioned in his statements. 
In the trailer, you see Taapsee playing the character of Rani who is married to Vikrant Massey's Rishu.  After Rishu is killed in an explosion, police doubts Rani and think she might be the culprit. There are also hints of Rani’s affair with Harshvardhan’s character. Here’s the trailer: As we are intrigued and impressed by the trailer, most people are also echoing the same emotions and are loving it.  They have already declared it a masterpiece and are rooting for performances by the three versatile actors. Here are the reactions: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © YouTube/Netflix © YouTube/Netflix © YouTube/Netflix In a statement released by Netflix, Taapsee said, “Haseen Dillruba was a film I had a very strong gut feeling about the day I heard the basic idea from Kanika. Unfortunately, I wasn’t the first choice for the film and it came to me after all their options were exhausted. And the good old saying that, if it’s meant for you it will come to you stands true for this case. It’s not just a beautifully written mystery, it has such wonderful characters involved which is candy in an actor’s hands. I am glad I got to experiment with my look and performance with this one because I am definitely not the go-to person for this kind of character conventionally and we all love to take risks here.”  © Eros International Harvardhan added, “I am honoured to be in the same frame with some of our country's finest talent. Taapsee and Vikrant, have one thing in common I could never make out if they were joking or if they were serious. I always had to look for tiny nuances to understand the pretext. Working on Haseen Dillruba also gave me a chance to associate with the best filmmakers, be it Aanand L Rai sir, Vinil sir, and Kanika ma'am. I was blown away with the script, a classic whodunit that will keep you guessing until the very end.” 
We are excited about the movie. What about you? Let us know in the comments section below.

The Apple Watch Will Finally Notify iPhone Users If They Leave Their Phone Behind

The Apple Watch now has a new feature that warns you if you leave your phone behind. While this hasn’t been a feature up until now, it makes a lot of sense now that Apple has implemented it.  Often people forget their iPhone at a coffee shop or at a store without realising it until it's too late. Now, if you are also wearing an Apple Watch, you will get notified as soon as you get further away from the iPhone.  © Unsplash/lloyd-dirks The feature can be found on watchOS 8 in the Find Devices app on the smartwatch. You can toggle the option to “Notify When Left Behind.” 
It’s obvious that the Apple Watch uses a Bluetooth connection to ping both devices. When a user is 30 to 50 feet away from the iPhone, the Apple Watch will automatically get an alert letting you know that you’ve left your iPhone behind.  © Reddit/RGGBV There would be instances around the house where you would like to freely move around without having to carry your iPhone everywhere. 
It’s not clear whether you can turn off this feature on the fly or whether this feature gets automatically turned off when at home or when charging the Apple Watch.  © Unsplash/frederik-lipfert The new feature is also said to work with other compatible devices such as AirTags and even third-party gadgets that work with the Find My network. 
So, theoretically, any object or device that is compatible with the Find My app, Apple Watch users would get the same notification on the Apple Watch.  Apple is introducing a range of new features to watchOS 8 including portrait image watchfaces, a Focus mode, and a new respiratory rate tracking feature.  The new update is currently available in beta for developers and will be available for everyone to test out next month.

5 Ways To Make Sure Your Super Dad Is Healthy, Happy & Safe

It is impossible to underestimate the impact of a father on a young man’s life. Their beliefs, their example, their style, their habits, even their presence go a long way to making the mould that their children grow into. 
Their words and advice echo in a child’s thoughts for the rest of his life. It is with this in mind that we believe no matter how old or responsible we are, we’ll always need our fathers to protect us like an umbrella in the rain. This also means a father’s health is vital and the best we can do is make them feel healthy, happy and safe—just like they did. So how do we do that?  1. Assess Your Dad’s NeedsYour father has a lot of practice at taking care of you but you might not know how to do the same for your parents. So start by categorising and assessing what they need. Do they need family support, home safety, mobility, a permanent cook? Are they socially active? What are the medical conditions they’re dealing with?  Write it all down and solve it one by one.  For example, if your dad is managing diabetes, you must keep a check on his medicines, supplements, diet and physical activities (if you don’t already).  Being involved with your parents can boost their mental health.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1465__ 2. Make Him A Part Of Every ProcessMost parents are so used to working, especially fathers that when it’s suddenly time to stay put and relax, they fail to do it. Losing control is not something they appreciate. So make sure you involve them in your decision, in the process of building a healthy family—be it hiring a house help or adding a new supplement to their diet.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1455__ 3. Take Care Of His Sleep & Nutritional NeedsYour dad must have pulled off plenty of all-nighters in his younger days but with age, 6-7 hours of sleep becomes necessary. Even one day with less amount of sleep can show you a difference in his behaviour.  Most dads wake up early and due to years of practice, it’s difficult for them to sleep after sunrise. Encourage them to sleep on time.  They may or may not be aware of their nutritional needs at this point. So keep a balance of all nutrients while serving meals as you would do for your child. Or consult doctor supplements.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1774__ 4. Workout With Him For all age groups, regular exercise can improve mood, emotional well-being and of course, physical health. Your dad will enjoy workouts more with you by his side.  Yes, it is possible that you like to do your workouts in the gym or go for a run and your father prefers yoga. You can always encourage your old man to take the yoga classes in your gym or take out 20 minutes to do yoga with him.  Along with spending quality time with your parents make sure they have friends of their age. This will keep them from feeling lonely.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1775__ 5. Encourage Him To Pursue A HobbyMotivation is important for youngsters to achieve their goals. But as our parents age, they need the motivation to stay happy, active and involved. Doing household chores is one way for them to achieve that but it’s not enough.  A hobby like gardening, painting, baking, knitting or decorating can increase longevity. If they don’t already have one, inspire them to take up a hobby. Urban farming is one of the most soothing ones if you ask us! __ECOMPRODUCT__1776__ Schedule Regular CheckupsDon’t take any symptom for granted. You can’t always detect a health issue but regular checkups minimise the risk. Make it a habit to schedule a monthly visit to the doctor. Explore More

Police Probe If Fight Over Female Friend Led To Sagar's Brutal Murder By Sushil Kumar

As the probe into Sagar Rana's alleged murder continues, a shocking revelation has come to the light which suggests that brawl at Delhi's Chhatrasal stadium wasn't a one-off incident and that things flared up between the two groups after Sushil's ally misbehaved with Sonu Mahal's female friend, who was also brutally beaten up by the two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar and his allies. According to a report in India Today, the police have unearthed a property tussle between the two groups and things escalated after Ajay, Sushil's associate confronted Sonu Mahal's girlfriend at a flat in Delhi's Model Town during a birthday party in March. View this post on Instagram The flat reportedly owned by Sushil was forcefully occupied by Sagar and Sonu and they had not vacated the flat despite Olympian's repeated warnings. In March, Sushil's friend Ajay barged into Model Town flat and got really angry after seeing Sonu's birthday celebrations going on there. Sagar and Sonu were not present in the flat when Ajay walked in and he reportedly misbehaved with Sonu's girlfriend.  The girl narrated  the entire incident to Sonu and Sagar after they returned back after which they called Ajay and abused him for mis-behaving with Sonu's girlfriend. This incident further fuelled the animosity between the two groups and Ajay approached Sushil and they planned to settle the scores once and for all.  Night CCTV footage of Olympic medalist #SushilKumar being intercepted by @CellDelhi sleuths and later arrested for his alleged role in the murder of 23 year old ex junior national champion wrestler Sagar. pic.twitter.com/Vj5n8N0xc5 — Pramod Kumar Singh (@SinghPramod2784) May 23, 2021 Ajay and Sushil also roped in gangsters from Aasuda gang for more muscle power and they picked up Sonu and Sagar from the flat and assaulted them brutally and even recorded the video to spread fear among others. Sonu's girlfriend narrated the whole incident when she was called up by the police for questioning.  Sonu, who was also beaten up badly on that night, has made several shocking revelations which eventually led to to the unfortunate spine-chilling incident on May 4, resulting in the brutal murder of junior wrestler friend Sagar Rana.  Sushil Kumar (face wrapped in a towel) arrested by Delhi Police Special Cell this morning. pic.twitter.com/Pc5DiLd2yx — Rahul Rawat (@rawatrahul9) May 23, 2021 Sonu revealed that Sushil was angry with Rana because he took 50-60 wrestlers with him to the new institution, opened by a former Chhatrasal coach Virendra.  He further stated that Sushil and his thugs even kidnapped five individuals to know Sagar's whereabouts. Later, Kumar had to release one of the hostages after his wife called the police.

Shahid Kapoor Pays Tribute To Boxer Dingko Singh & People Want The Actor To Be Part Of His Biopic

Boxing legend Dingko Singh passed away on Thursday following a long battle with liver cancer and even struggled with coronavirus last year.  Dingko Singh won gold at the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games and he was then awarded Arjuna Award and later the Padma Shri. © Twitter Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is one of the few celebrities who paid tribute to the boxing legend. 
Paying tribute to Dingko Singh, Shahid wrote, "Padma Shri Dingko Singh was one of the finest boxers, an award-winning sportsperson who's brought glory to our nation several times. He will always remain a source of inspiration for the young generations. My sincere condolences to his dear ones. May his soul rest in peace.” © Shahid Kapoor Twitter People appreciated the fact that he is one of the few famous personalities who paid a tribute and were also curious to know the status of the biopic on the boxing legend.
© Shahid Kapoor Twitter © Shahid Kapoor Twitter © Shahid Kapoor Twitter For the uninitiated, Shahid had told a leading daily in 2019 that he had the rights to make a film on Dingko Singh. However, the project never materialized. 
"I have the rights for Dingko Singh. It's a film I really want to make, and I'll make it. But I don't know what I'm doing next," he had said. The biopic on Dingko Singh was set to be directed by Raja Krishna Menon, however, Shahid is saddened by the fact the project didn’t materialize when the boxer was alive.  © Twitter/Kiren-Rijij He told PTI, “It is unfortunate and terrible. This has come as a shock. I knew he was ill and suffering, but I didn’t know it was this bad. He was a wonderful human being and a spiritual person. It is unfortunate that we couldn’t make the film before he could have seen it.”
He added, "The film got stuck... we will see what happens. He wanted the film to be made because he wanted the story to be told to inspire people. He was a pragmatic person. He never called me or asked why it was stuck. This film needs to be made. It is a story that has to be told. It is a tremendous story and a tribute is due to him. I do believe this film needs to be made.” We wish the film does get made and people get to witness the boxer’s journey.

© Instagram Soon enough it went viral as a TikTok challenge and everyone was found chopping up a juicy watermelon and squeezing a generous amount of mustard sauce on it.  A lot of people tried it including celebrities like Hilary Duff and Lizzo. 
© Instagram The reactions are mostly mixed with some people finding it disgusting and others settling for “not bad”. An Instagram user who took the food challenge wrote,”Ok I did it. Not mad at it at all. The mustard took away the sweetness of the watermelon Try it.” Another reviewed the trend saying,  I tried it. I didn’t spit it out. I almost choked because the watermelon was juicy and then mustard tartness on top of that. Will I do again? I don’t know. It wasn’t terrible, it just wasn’t mind blowing.”
I tried the mustard on watermelon and it’s wasn’t horrible

I also dip my fries in mayonnaise & bbq sauce 🥴 — Shashana 🇺🇸 (@Shashana80sKid) June 9, 2021Tried the mustard on watermelon trend and it’s actually not that bad. It’s so confusing. 🤣 — K a t i e (@katiengler12) June 8, 2021Probably be high enough to try this watermelon and mustard bullshit I keep seein lmaooo — HOT SAUCE (@Horny_Fuckin) June 6, 2021And then, there were some who were so disgusted by the idea, they said they wouldn't even try the combo. However, it doesn’t sound so bad. Watermelon is usually had with salt to cut it’s sweetness and add a tangy taste to it.  © Instagram So, it can’t be that bad. Not as bad as ‘Maggi with chocolate’ or ‘gulab jamun pizza’ at least. Yes, that happened!

Aaliyah Kashyap has been making headlines for various reasons of late.  She is filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and his former wife Aarti Bajaj's daughter.  As for her career, Aaliyah is currently in the US and enjoys a massive social media following. In fact, she is also a YouTuber with more than 40K subscribers. © YouTube/Ida Ali The story is about an Indian girl, who is invited to a party but isolates herself in a room. When the host enters the room, she is surprised to see a girl sitting, while everyone else is partying. 
The shy girl then opens up about recently moving to the US and how she finds herself lost. The host then has a heartfelt conversation with her and tells her to give it a chance and introduces her to everyone at the party.
The movie ends with credits and some amazing friendship pictures. 
Aaliyah and Ida have been friends for a long time. They are both currently studying at Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.  This short film received rave reviews from everyone.  A user in a long comment explained how shy people can't handle the pressure of being judged and how they need to be strong in this cruel world. The user appreciated Ida for making this short film.
In a YouTube video, both Ida and Aaliyah once spoke about Imtiaz's movie Tamasha. They recalled an incident when Aaliyah got lost in Corsica at the time of the shoot and the whole unit was scared.  Aaliyah continued saying, "We decided to go for dinner, and we asked them.

Patience, Motivation & Discipline - Here's How My Dad Helped Me Lose 23 Kgs In A Year

Even though we live in an ever-evolving society, we still struggle with the idea of beauty and the different standards set for men and women. In the last few years, we have seen more and more body-positive influencers take centre stage as plus-size models made it to the cover of magazines and walked on runways.  While loving your body the way it is has become a recent topic of conversation in our society, many of us want to lose weight, have a fit, healthy body and push ourselves to be the best version of ourselves.  I have struggled with weight and body image issues for as long as I can remember. There was never a time in my life when I was “skinny” but in 2016, I let myself go to a dangerous extent. My lifestyle was unhealthy, my body was struggling with issues like PCOS & thyroid while also dealing with my emotional binge eating.  © Snigdha Kacker My family is very fitness-oriented (unlike me), and we have all had our weight-loss journeys. But, the one that motivated me the most was my father’s. He is a dedicated, disciplined and hard-working man who never stopped his fitness journey and inspired me to get started on mine. 
After years of slacking off, I restarted my weight-loss journey after the pandemic hit and since then I have lost over 23 kgs! That’s right! While diet control & exercise played a major role in this, here’s how my dad became the guiding light through it all: Becoming My Alarm ClockMy dad goes on a morning walk every day without fail. Doesn’t matter if he slept late, was travelling or it was freezing outside, he will put on his workout gear (which I keep updating!) and go for a walk, sometimes twice a day!. So, to help me get into a routine, he became my alarm clock. Every day without fail he would wake me up at 6:30 and push me to go on a walk/run. __ECOMPRODUCT__1771__ Teaching Me The Importance Of DisciplineSince my brother & I were kids, our dad has always insisted on the importance of discipline and sticking to a schedule. He would always get dressed in proper clothes and shoes, even on weekends. While that might have changed since the pandemic, he made sure that nothing else did.  © Snigdha Kacker While I was working on losing weight, my biggest struggle was to make sure that I did not fall off the wagon. Dad made sure that he never wavered from his schedule, which in turn motivated me to stick to mine. 
My Dietician, Cook & Motivator In OneWhen I first started this journey in April 2020, my dad purged the house of any unhealthy snacks and stocked it full of veggies, fruits, oats and anything else I needed to eat right. Not just that, he changed his lifestyle, gave up on parathas & sweets, ate boiled vegetables with me and became my support system.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1772__ I have been on this journey many times over in my life already, but every time the fear of failure made me quit. This time my dad made sure that I knew that I had the support to fail and get back up. Many of us need that at the start! Snigdha Kacker Finally, Just Being A Super Dad Who Always Stood By My SideWe all love our dads, they will always be the guiding light we need in our lives. My dad is the same. Every time I got lazy or irritated with the process, he motivated me, when I cheated on my diet he scolded me & when I failed to see my achievements, he made sure to celebrate them. __ECOMPRODUCT__1773__ To Wrap It UpSo, this Father’s Day, I decided to celebrate the selfless superhero that my dad is by not just giving him an amazing shaving kit, but also by making him proud & by achieving my goals. If you want to find a gift that shows your dad just how much you love him, just hop on to MensXP Shop because the Father’s Day sale has many curated products that he will actually use! Explore More

Jadeja’s ‘English Problem’: How Harsha Bhogle Managed It Vs How Manjrekar Used It As An Excuse

Recently, former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar slid into the DMs of one of his social media critics and decided to have a one-on-one with him. Little did he know, that critic would go on to share the entire conversation online and the whole thing would simply blow up on Twitter. I didn’t want to share this personal chat in public, even though it’s full to shit. But couldn’t help, coz ppl need to know this side of this man. @imjadeja would be proud of what he did to prove you wrong. @BCCI is this the kind of man you would want in your com panel in future? pic.twitter.com/AUjX301Foz — soorya narayanan (@soorya_214) June 7, 2021 With a set of screenshots of the chat, he had with Manjrekar, Twitter user Soorya Narayanan expressed his dissent towards the cricketer-turned-analyst while further mentioning that this time around it was the ‘common man’ who blocked the celebrity. In the chat, Manjrekar relives the infamous “bits and pieces” debacle against Ravindra Jadeja that had tainted his reputation as a cricket analyst in the eyes of the Indian viewers.  © Twitter/Soorya Narayanan However, this time around, he went on to say that it was because “Jadeja does not know English” why he misinterpreted the “bits and pieces” comment, further adding that Jadeja’s frustrated response towards his comments was written by someone else on his behalf.
Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea.@sanjaymanjrekar — Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) July 3, 2019 “Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea. @sanjaymanjrekar,” Jadeja had written from his Twitter account back then. Now, let’s take a look at how Harsha Bhogle dealt with Ravindra Jadeja’s so-called “English problem” when he came across an awkward situation while interviewing after a match. 7️⃣7️⃣ runs
4️⃣ fours
4️⃣ sixes

Ravindra Jadeja was batting on a different pitch to everyone else during #INDvNZ in Manchester! @Oppo | #BeAShotMaker pic.twitter.com/L0JNEvB0au — ICC (@ICC) July 11, 2019 It was in December 2019, and the Men in Blue had won a three-match ODI series against the touring West Indies and it was Jadeja and Shardul Thakur’s thunderous batting partnership which led to the winning runs for the team. Bhogle asked Thakur about his ability to bat in English before taking his questions to Jadeja while shifting to Hindi. However, when the cricketer replied in English, Bhogle took no time in switching languages and the rest of the interview went smoothly. Nonetheless, the ‘Voice of Indian Cricket’ still had to listen to some online criticism and it was his response to such criticism that made everyone fall in love with the man once again. Okay, since I have been flooded with responses on this.... In a post match presentation, you always go in the language the player is most comfortable in. I've known Jadeja for 10 yrs now and so began in his language. The moment he indicated he was good to go in English, I shifted — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) December 22, 2019 “Okay, since I have been flooded with responses on this....

Manjrekar Says 'Jadeja Doesn't Know English', Fans Anticipate Fierce Reply From India Cricketer

Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, more than his cricketing analysis, is famous for being in the news for all the wrong reasons. Despite facing heavy criticism for his controversial comments about certain Indian cricketers, Manjrekar seems to be in no mood to make amends. He has once again found himself in troubled waters after a Twitter user shared screenshots of his alleged conversation with the former India batsman in Twitter DMs where he made fun of India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja's English. 7️⃣7️⃣ runs
4️⃣ fours
4️⃣ sixes

Ravindra Jadeja was batting on a different pitch to everyone else during #INDvNZ in Manchester! @Oppo | #BeAShotMaker pic.twitter.com/L0JNEvB0au — ICC (@ICC) July 11, 2019 Manjrekar had faced severe backlash for calling Jadeja a "bits and pieces" player in 2019 and if these screenshots are indeed true, he should be ready for another face-off with the India all-rounder. “Sad state you are in. Expecting me to worship players like you do… by the way I am not a fan. I am an analyst. And Jadeja doesn’t know English so he did not know the actual meaning of bits and pieces. And surely somebody spelt verbal diarrhoea for him," Manjrekar wrote. I didn’t want to share this personal chat in public, even though it’s full to shit. But couldn’t help, coz ppl need to know this side of this man. @imjadeja would be proud of what he did to prove you wrong. @BCCI is this the kind of man you would want in your com panel in future? pic.twitter.com/AUjX301Foz — soorya narayanan (@soorya_214) June 7, 2021 During the 2019 World Cup, Manjrekar has caused a massive controversy by calling Jadeja as a "bits and pieces" cricketer, someone he was not very fond of at the time. TIL Sanju Manju can reach new lows. Didn't know it was possible considering how low and desperate for attention he already was — Heisenberg (@internetumpire) June 7, 2021Rohit Sharma , Gavaskar , Sachin Tendulkar all mumbaikars are all time greats for him . Just added Kohli so that no one gets any doubt. He don't like south Indian players actually . @sanjaymanjrekar — Kane Warrior Forever (@GoatHesson) June 7, 2021I've hated @sanjaymanjrekar not only as a player but I hate him more as a commentator.

Never seen him respecting Indian players always criticising Indian players. In every commentary sinct he'll definately bring in Pakistan & how good they were.

I hope @BCCI will take note. — म_ની_sh 🇮🇳 (@M_T_6579) June 8, 2021Mocking Jaddu for not knowing English and some one spelt Diarrhoea for him is right? — Mr Nobody (@Me_MrNobody) June 7, 2021A furious Jadeja then took to Twitter to reprimand the cricketer-turner-commentator saying he had heard enough of his "verbal diarrhoea". In the screenshots which have gone viral, Majrekar also writes that Jadeja probably took an external help to spell verbal diarrhoea correctly. Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea.@sanjaymanjrekar — Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) July 3, 2019 Manjrekar's controversial comments are not limited to Jadeja and it seems he has mastered the art of creating controversy out of thin air. Recently, he was in the eye of yet another controversy when he said that he felt veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is not an 'All-Time Great' and he has a problem with people referring to him as one of the greats of the game. View this post on Instagram "Ravichandran Ashwin, with due respect to him, I think he's a great guy at what he does, but when people start talking about him as one of the all-time greats, I have a few problems with that," Manjrekar said in a video conference by ESPNcricinfo. "One basic problem that I have with Ashwin is that when you look at SENA, the countries for batsmen and bowlers, places where Indians find themselves outside their comfort zone - it's amazing that he doesn't have a single five-wicket haul. Not one five-wicket haul in all these countries," he added in the video.

5 Priceless Indian Artefacts That We Would Like The British Museum To Return Back To Us

We all know the story of the largest cut diamond ‘Kohinoor’ which is owned by India but now sits at the centre of the Queen’s crown in the United Kingdom. 
However, if you thought it was the only treasure that our former coloniser had stolen from us, you are mistaken.  There are a number of treasured possessions, idols and artefacts that belong to India but are possessed by the biggest museums of Britain.   © Twitter These priceless items were moved, stolen and looted from India and taken to the UK years ago but sadly still remain in the possession of the British museums and royals. 
Recently, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) New York said it will return the Benin bronzes looted from Nigeria by British Army in 1897 in order to repatriate the looted possessions held by the museum.  © Twitter We wonder if British museums have any plans to do such repatriation for South Asian items as well.  
Here are some really valuable and incredibly priceless artefacts from India that are wrongly in the possession of British museums, that we would like back.   Lord Harihara idolA beautifully carved sandstone statue of the lord Harihara looted from the temple in Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh is displayed at the British Museum, London. © Twitter The Sultanganj BuddhaA 2.3 metres high and 500kg copper sculpture of Buddha was discovered in Sultanganj Bihar in 1862 and was estimated to be built 1500 years ago prior to that courtesy its Gupta styling of sculpturing. It is currently kept in the Birmingham museum.   © Twitter Tipu Sultan’s personal possessionsThe legendary ruler Tipu Sultan’s sword, ring, perfume and a wooden tiger are all in the possession of different museums in Britain. He fought the British till his last breath and his personal possessions were looted upon his death.  © Twitter Wine cups of Shah JahanThe paisley shaped wine cup made of white nephrite jade belonged to the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan which was later acquired by Victorian and Albert Museum in London in 1962. The cup was made in 1657 CE and had his title “Second Lord of the Conjunction” inscribed on it.  © Twitter Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s throneThe magnificent throne of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, first Maharaja of the Sikh Empire, had gold sheets and was built specifically for state meetings. It was moved during Anglo Sikh war and has been kept in the Victorian and Albert Museum since then. © Twitter While these should shine in our homeland for the tourists from around the world to witness the rich history and culture of India, they are instead kept on display in the splendid museums of London for the British to show off.  What will take Great Britain to finally return what is rightfully ours?

Reliving The Magic Of Summer Vacations Us 90s Kids Enjoyed: Nani Ghar, Train Travels & Play Time

It is midday, a koel is humming near the window, my chai is brewing and I see my niece, all of 9 years, cycling in the verandah. 
“ No online classes today? “, I ask.  “ Summer vacations have begun!”, she shouts back, before running inside to the call of her mother.  A whiff of nostalgia hits my brain when I realise that for almost half of my life before college and a corporate job, the months of May- June were not known by their calendar names, but simply called ‘garmi ki chhutiyan’.  The walk from the kitchen to my room is weighed down with the pressure of forgetting everything, and taking a jog down memory lane. So, as I skip work calls, ignore the chores surrounding me and stop being a responsible adult for a few minutes, if you made it so far, then allow yourself to embark on this journey with me. It feels like yesterday. The first week of May, the last day at school before we all pack our bags, promise friends to make plans and meet, exchange notes on where we were going for a vacation and slipping the holiday homework booklet into oblivion.  The uniforms were packed for the next two months and our mothers excitedly told us that we’d soon leave for ‘nani house’, aka the den of fun, where all whims and fancies came to life. Dads discussed plans for vacation and the most awaited train journeys would happen.  For me, our quaint family home in Mussoorie symbolised summer vacations. We spent a lot of time there, walking from the Mall Road to the Library Chowk.  The ‘pahado wali maggi’, sitting under the mucky Kempty Falls, the quintessential ‘hill station’ vacation was always incomplete with the roadside corn on the cob slathered with tamarind and lemon.  Long before delivery apps and express meal counters took over our lives, all car and train journeys relied on the ‘puri aloo’ that mom packed, all the snacks and homemade Rasna we filled in our sippers.  Life was simple, the vacation plans were predictable, but take out any photograph from that time and you’ll realise that we were happier. The innocence, the nonchalant blasé attitude on our faces required no Instagram filters.  Our parents happily clicked our pictures for memory banks, and not for social media. © warner bros Summer vacations also meant joining a swimming class, or a dance class and honing skills which we’d later show off when schools opened and notes were exchanged with friends. 
Besides having a lot of fun at my maternal grandmother’s house, I always had the benign pleasure of taking a Shatabdi Express to Amritsar, my nani’s maternal home.  If I had to describe my experience of these travels laden with the memories of ‘train ka khana’ and the breadstick covered in butter with the watery tomato soup they served, I’d say I was Harry Potter on the Hogwarts Express who just discovered chocolate frogs.  Back in the late ’90s and early 2000s, family time in small towns meant everyone gathered their mattresses and slept on the terrace under the blanket of a beautiful starry sky. Stories were exchanged, food was made in kilos to feed an army of hungry kids who’d run all day and be ready to devour whatever was made.  Oh, and yes, we had no privilege of demanding the bowl of dal (with dollops of ghee swimming on top) be replaced with a pizza or the full mug of fresh cow milk be swapped with a Frappuccino.  But you know what? Isn’t that what the beauty of this simplicity was? This lack of choice inside this wild innocent mind, which was living an entire lifetime of fun in those two months.  © pinpoint poductions As June came towards an end, bags were taken out, homework was finished as we all began sulking in the hangover of these holidays that went by in a blink of an eye. No one told me that the burden of finishing my holiday homework was way less than the burden of paying hospital bills in a pandemic. 
No one reminded you that time was fleeting and that you should make the most of it. We were young, dumb, and silly, but with eyes that gleamed with joy, hearts full with love, the running around like wild bears, stealing mangoes from dadi’s kitchen, troubling older cousins.  I believe our parents became lenient, as we weren’t scolded for not studying, and eating more chocolates without brushing at night was allowed, because somewhere, even they relieved their own childhood with us. Secretly, they knew one day this reality of our ‘bachpan’ would soon become a photo memory, but thankfully, they decided not to ruin those moments for us. © disney While I drown in this sea of nostalgia and try to just cool down my heart which is so envious of my niece leaving for her ‘nani ghar’, I decide to pass this cup of chai to my dad and go look for Roohafza instead, open a packet of ‘namkeen’ and call up my cousins to ask if they want to play badminton or hopscotch on the terrace today, just like old times. 
For now, let’s clock in the working hours my friend, and just like me, if you too are sitting at your work desk and sighing as you finish reading this, then hold that thought and convert it into action.  Pick up anything from your memory and just do it, for that child inside you.  Holiday homework has been replaced with presentations but who cares? you can steal some time from the day for yourself right?  Even though I am going to the supermarket now to buy some candies, chocolates and find a bag of Fun Flips, honestly, in my heart, I wish I was on a train journey with my mom’s paranthas packed with achaar instead.

Sushant Singh Rajput's Father’s Plea Seeking Stay On ‘Nyay: The Justice’ Dismissed By Delhi HC

Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely demise left his near and dear ones devastated and his loss is strongly felt to this day. 
There are many speculations around his death and we need to be sensitive towards the emotions of those who were deeply connected to the late actor.  However, there are also some who have been trying to encash on his death. Some wrote books and some started to churn out scripts.  View this post on InstagramOne more such movie that came into the limelight is Nyay: The Justice. Sushant’s father dragged the makers of the film to court and his plea stated that the movie is based on his son’s life. Sushant’s father has contended that the filmmakers are taking advantage of the situation for commercial gains and therefore, the right to freedom of speech and expression would not apply to them.  “Plaintiff (Singh) has apprehension that various plays, movies, web-series, books, interviews or other material may be published which would harm the reputation of the son of the plaintiff and his family,” claimed the suit, seeking damages of over Rs 2 crore from the filmmakers for “loss of reputation, mental trauma, and harassment” to Rajput’s family. In the latest development, the Delhi High Court on Thursday refused to stay the release of the movie. Justice Sanjeev Narula dismissed an application by Rajput’s father Krishna Kishore Singh, seeking to restrain anyone from using his son’s name or likeness in movies. The teaser of the film does have striking similarities to Sushant’s death and all the reports that were aired on TV.  The teaser opens with the news of a popular actor 'Mahinder Singh' committing suicide at his residence. It shows the characters playing the apparent roles of Mahesh Bhatt and Rhea Chakraborty.  The director has also shown scenes wherein the actor is struggling with depression. “I was shocked to learn about his (Sushant Singh Rajput) death. Though I do not know him personally, we all felt for him. Through this film we want to send out a message that taking your own life is not the right thing to do, there is always another option. This film is a tribute to him and we hope that this film helps to celebrate him and his work," director Dilip Gulati said. Here’s the teaser:
Producer Sarla A. Saraogi added, “We are making this film not to ride on his fame or success, we hope that this film celebrates his journey and reignites the spark to seek justice for a lost son."  However, I am of the opinion that the teaser is outright disturbing.

4 Incredibly Underrated Superhero Characters Who Definitely Deserve Their Own Movies

Let's admit it. The recent years have been an absolute joyful ride for fans of the superhero franchises as we have been treated to a plethora of exciting and fresh superhero characters, some of whom we'd never even heard before.
© Marvel Studios That's right!
For every popular character like Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and co, there are plenty of characters we'd never know much about had it not been for the movies. Unless, of course, if you are an avid comic book reader or have followed animated shows religiously in the past. © Marvel Studios The fact remains that while you may have cried a river when Tony Stark gave his life away to save all of us from Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, you may not have felt the same emotion had a comparatively less important character been killed in the movies. (*cough* QuickSilver *cough*)
© Marvel Studios However, unlike how things are always portrayed in movies, there are plenty of amazing superheroes, who while not being so popular on the big screen, have all the firepower to hold their own.
Hence, we have made a list of the most underrated superhero characters that definitely need their own standalone films to show exactly what they are capable of: 1. Cyclops © Marvel Yeah? The goggles guy standing next to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine? The jealous boyfriend of Jean Grey in the X-Men movies? Why should you bother, right?
© 20th Century Fox Wrong! 
Unlike how the character of Cyclops AKA Scott Summers is shown in the Bryan Singer X-Men movies, in the comic books and animated television series, he is anything but just a whining, jealous boyfriend. Cyclops is an Alpha-Level mutant who shoots powerful optic blasts out of his eyes, which is exactly the reason why he sports his trademark visor to control it. It is said that his optic blasts are even more powerful than an actual nuclear bomb. © Warner Bros Television Not just that, Cyclops, who has spent much of his career being the leader of X-Men or the X-Factor, boasts of extensive training in martial arts and has even been called the best strategist and tactician by your beloved Captain America, Steve Rogers.
© Marvel Studios Pretty sure we haven't seen any of this in the movies, where the character of Scott Summers is just considered as an extra cast member to fill up the Xavier Mansion. 
Now, we know why he needs more screen time in a movie of his own. 2. Robin © HBO Max We know you know him. We know you like him. But the real question is, have you ever really seen him?
The answer is No, and Yes. I mean, if you count seeing Chris O'Donnell's portrayal as Batman's number one deputy in Batman Forever and Batman and Robin (Batnipples), well then, yes, you might have seen him. © Warner Bros However, of what we know of DC's Robin, he is worth much more than just a tiny blip on the Bat-radar.
If Batman, who doesn't even like working together with the Justice League, lets Robin be his number one partner in crime, you have to really believe that the kid must have something in him.   © DC While Robin is similar to Batman in not possessing any superhuman powers, it is his physical conditioning that makes him perfect for jumping buildings, overpowering criminals twice the size of him, and matching up to the task of meeting Batman's expectations.
Apart from enhanced speed, reflexes, stamina that make him physically superior to an actual Olympic athlete, Robin is a master detective, possesses a genius intellect, while also being a master combatant, tactician, and weapons specialist. Moreover, other than being a part of the Bat-Family, he is also the leader of the Teen Titans. © DC Now, while in the Batman universe, there have been four Robins: Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Batman's own son Damian Wayne, at least we can hope for one of them to get his own superhero movie to show that it's not just about Batman.
3. Silver Surfer © 20th Century Fox If you have seen 2007's Fantastic Four 2 film, you might have come across a silvery character who marauds around between different worlds on a flying board, against the wishes of Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and The Thing.
Well, while the movie was quickly forgotten amongst a pile of other films locked up in the 2000s vault, we cannot fathom the fact that Marvel never truly took advantage of bringing the Silver Surfer to the fold. Yes, the Silver Surfer has long been one of the most important characters in the Marvel universe, be it the comics or the animated shows. © Marvel He is considered to be one of the most powerful beings in the universe with his powers seen to not just match, but exceed those of Thanos.
The Surfer, apart from having the ability to manipulate the four fundamental forces of the universe, possesses physical strength to that of an angry Hulk, while also being able to fly intergalactically at superluminal speeds. Now, imagine seeing all of that in an MCU movie. Wouldn't that be absolute nuts? This is the reason why Marvel's Kevin Feige should contact Silver Surfer right now and get him on board. 4. Gambit © Marvel Gambit is one of the most iconic and charismatic characters in the X-Men world under the Marvel universe.
Distinct for his Cajun accent and for sporting a long bo staff and a deck of cards in hands, Gambit is one of the most mysterious and incredibly likeable characters, who we've unfortunately not seen much of. I mean, there have been what, 13 X-Men movies (give or take), and we've just seen him in one (I know, difficult to remember, right?), the Wolverine: Origins movie, where he literally just gets his ass kicked by Hugh Jackman's Wolverine only to pick and drop him. © 20th Century Fox I mean come on! Gambit is an almost Omega-Level mutant who has the ability to mentally create, control and manipulate pure kinetic energy as per his will. Apart from that, he also has gifted intellect, is a master marksman, a profound fighter, and super skilled in card throwing.
© Marvel Truly he deserves more than just a cameo as an awful sidekick in a movie that ruined Ryan Reynolds. Now, if Deadpool can make a comeback, why not Gambit?

Use pure aloe vera gel or cold-pressed coconut oil every time you change your baby’s nappy and your child won’t get one.  __ECOMPRODUCT__879__ 2. Keep Your Baby At An AngleWhether you’re changing them, whether they’re sleeping, being held at an angle is good for their digestion.  Imagine if you ate all your meals until you’re full and immediately lied on your back. We bet you’ll feel a little uneasy too. The angling of the baby helps them digest resulting in less fussiness, less gas and less vomit.  Pro tip: Wear outfits made of organic and comfy fabrics. PJs and T-shirts are the best attire. It’ll be good for you and even better for your baby. __ECOMPRODUCT__1410__ 3. It Takes A Town To Feed The BabyIt’s true, no one can take care of a baby’s nutritional needs as well as a mother—be it through breast milk or formula. But a father can always help his partner with feeding.  While breastfeeding, dads can provide comfort by assisting with research, troubleshooting and lactation snacks. Pay extra attention to your partner in the beginning days.  When it’s time for the bottle game, fathers that take night shifts for feeding are real heroes.  Just make sure while approaching your baby you keep the lights dim and the interaction minimal. Before putting the baby down again, make them burp. And do it all very quietly. __ECOMPRODUCT__1766__ 4. Schedule, Divide & Conquer Are you a 'going with the flow' kind of a guy? Yeah, those days are over man. Babies are on schedule. So you too need to have a schedule for everything and stick to the timetable.  Assign tasks because you can’t do it all alone, neither can your partner. It’ll make things a lot easier. __ECOMPRODUCT__1767__ 5. Sleep Is Everything       A baby requires 16 to 20 hours of sleep per 24 hours for the first five months. But they don’t know the difference between night and day, as the cycle inside the womb was very different.  Parents need to teach them about the days that are bright and active and the nights that are dark and quiet.  Parents should also know that babies sleep on a fast-paced 20-minute cycle. They’re active sleepers. So when they make a noise every half-hour, you need to fight the urge to pick them up.  When they have trouble sleeping, swaying, jiggling or a quick car ride can calm them but long shushing noises will put them back to sleep as it is essentially white noise. Baby’s crib should be warm and comfy, free of blankets, bumpers or toys.   © Giphy 6. Spend One On One Time With The Baby …Bath time, a walk on the terrace or just playing with the toys together, some alone time with your baby is very important to establish a bond. These memories will become great stories in future. Like your mom has a lot of stories about you doing weird stuff. __ECOMPRODUCT__1768__ 7. Embrace SexThe general rule is that you can start again after six weeks of delivery. But for some people, it takes longer to fully recover. Keep an open mind, stay in the mood and of course, stay awake.  If your partner doesn’t feel ready, give her more time. Take it slow. Be gentle. Choose romance over pleasure. And use lube.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1769__ Are You The Best Daddy Yet?You can’t be a perfect parent but you can be a cool daddy, just take care of few more things. Buy clothes with zippers instead of buttons. Always remember that you’re parenting your kid, not babysitting. Don’t ask, just do the work that is at hand.Click as many pictures as you can with and of your baby.And remember to take care of yourself.Explore More

Divyanka Tripathi Opens Up On Why A Certain Troll Triggered Her, Says ‘Women Are First Targets’

Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya was recently questioned by a troll on social media about the absence of a dupatta with her suit for Crime Patrol.  The Twitter user had written, "Crime Patrol episode me aap dupatta kyu nahi pahanati hai (Why don't you wear a dupatta in the episodes of Crime Patrol) (sic)." © Instagram_Divyanka Tripathi Divyanka replied to the user and wrote, "Taaki aap jaise bin dupatte ki ladkiyon ko bhi izzat se dekhne ki aadat dalein! Kripya khud ki aur apne aas paas ke ladkon ki neeyat sudharen, na ki aurat jaat ke pehnaave ka beda uthaayen! Mera shareer, meri aabru, meri marzi! Aap ki sharaafat, aap ki marzi! (sic) (So that people like you learn to respect women even without a dupatta. I request you not to take upon the responsibility of what women should wear, and rather change the way you and others look at women. My body, my honour, my wish! Your decency, your wish)."
© Divyanka Tripathi Twitter Divyanka, in a recent interview, recalled the incident and opened up on the reason why that remark ‘triggered’ her.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Divyanka Tripathi said, "As celebrities, we’re bound to catch the eye of many and are constantly under the radar. I, however, have always been against trolls who specifically target women. I teach them how to be. It’s not that I’m a hardcore feminist... I believe in equal treatment for men and women." “When the troll questioned me about the absence of my Dupatta, it triggered me because what I was preaching in the show was an absolute opposite of it,” she added. She also added that women are often brutally attacked on social media when it comes to their clothes. View this post on Instagram She said, “Social norms differ according to regions and surroundings. Besides, a lot also depends on one’s learning through growing up years. So, no one can truly say what dress or behaviour is right or wrong. The world is grey that way.” She went on to add, “It really annoys me that during discussions on such topics, women are the first target for correction. I feel, if a person finds a dress inappropriate, they must work on getting some world exposure.” I completely support her statements. What about you? Let us know in the comments section below.

Heartbreaks & Unrequited Love: ‘Indori Ishq’ Takes Us On A Hard-Hitting Gen Z Love Story

Do you remember your first love? First love is often difficult to forget. The sweet-nothings and everyday milestones of that period will always remain a cherished memory. But that’s not the case for everyone. For some, first love is all about the emotional heartbreak, getting over the pain and being afraid to love again. Our hero Kunal from MX Original Series ‘Indori Ishq’ is one such troubled Gen Z lover-boy. He started out optimistic, the ‘we-will-live-happily-ever-after-kind’, but somewhere in the middle, this unsuspecting old-school romantic got the shock of his life – a breakup he didn’t see coming. MX Player Everything about Kunal (played by Ritvik Sahore) is old-school. He listens to Kishore Kumar over Badboy Badshah, he believes in falling in love for forever, not the till-I-don’t-find-anyone-better kind of love. Back home in Indore, just out of high school, Kunal finally got in a relationship with his crush, Tara (played by Vedika Bhandari), and believed she was it for him. Unfortunately, his true love couldn’t survive the troubled waters of long-distance. What happened next is the story of the drastic downfall of a vibrant young boy. He was cheated on by his girlfriend, his first love remained unrequited and he felt broken beyond repair. Actor Ritvik Sahore, who played Kunal’s character brought his versatile skills to the center with contrasting emotions. MX Player Director Samit Kakkad did a marvelous job of showing the emotional toll a failed relationship can take on a man. Men are equally fragile. All they want is to be loved. So why does society expect them to simply pick up the pieces of their broken heart and move on? The disparity in the rules of love is starkly brought alive in this web series and we for one believe that gender stereotypes surrounding infidelity, commitment, and trust issues in relationships must be addressed, equally!  As Kunal struggles to deal with the all-consuming grief, he finds comfort in an unconventional friendship with his broker, Reshma (played by TithiRaaj). She might be a broker by day, but what keeps her afloat is her work as a dancer at the local bar. As they exchange stories of love and grief, they find solace in each other’s company. But would Kunal take this new-found friendship as a hint to move on from his failed first relationship?
A lot is happening on ‘Indori Ishq’ and if you’re curious, don’t forget to catch all the 9 episodes of his emotional rollercoaster only on MX Player.
