People Think Carry Minati Is The Happiest Man Of 2020 After Government Bans TikTok

âYouTube VS TikTokâ war seems to have finally ended now as the government has decided to ban the latter. Thereâs a lot of uproar on the social media about the big decision and the ones who were against the TikTok content are now at peace. TikTok has been removed from the App Store and Google Play in India. The app was banned on Monday night on an order by the Ministry of Information and Technology, which also banned 58 other popular apps from China. pic.twitter.com/0DZQ3Ucqcl â TikTok India (@TikTok_IN) June 30, 2020 If you all remember that Carry Minati earlier had shared a video wherein he was roasting TikTokers for the quality of their videos which was later deleted. After the TikTok ban, people on Twitter think Carry Minati would actually be the happiest as he always pointed out the flaws in the TikTok content as it lacked creativity. à¤à¤¸ साल सबसॠà¤à¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤¦à¤¾ à¤à¥à¤¶

We have been invited to meet with concerned government stakeholders for an opportunity to respond and submit clarifications. TikTok continues to comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law and has not shared any information about our users in India with any foreign government, including the Chinese Government. Further, if we are requested to in the future we would not do so. We place the highest importance on user privacy and integrity,â Nikhil Gandhi, head of TikTok, India said. TikTok had nearly 119 million active users in India and was among the top 10 apps on Google Play Store and Apple App Store. What do you think future hold for us?

Farhan Akhtar Hits Back At Abhay Deol�s Comments On Being Called A Supporting Actor in �ZNMD�

If you see around, thereâs this angst around in people wherein they are pointing out whatâs happening in the film industry. Not long ago, Abhay Deol sparked controversy when he opened about how he felt neglected post Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and pointed to the fact how he was sidelined by Bollywood lobby culture and Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif were promoted as the main lead. Abhay said he had issues with the tag of the âsupporting actorâ for him and Farhan Akhtar. In an interaction with India Today, Farhan Akhtar said he was okay with the nominations of the awards and he didnât join the film industry to be featured on magazine covers or treated like a star. âYou are constantly hearing about some rat race and everybody is fighting each other to some kind of spot which does not exist. I mean the fact is you have to believe in yourself, you have to work sincerely, work hard, how many magazines covers you will do, whether you came on the front page of a magazine, or the front page of a newspaper,â he said.   He added, âIf that is your larger interest, I really feel that you are in the wrong profession. Youâre not here for that. Have you come here to be an actor, director, singer, music composer, or have you come here to be a reality star? Have you come here to be just, I donât know, a star?â  Â© Excel Movies For the unversed, in his Instagram post a few days ago, Abhay wrote, âI would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads and nominated us as "supporting actors". Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as "actors in a leading role". So by the industry's own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes.â
Thereâs a lot that has been said about the Bollywood lobby culture. While Abhay chose to call out, Farhan has taken a rather different approach to see things and focusing on his art.

Yogi Adityanath Launches 'COVID Prevention Championship', Will Award Rs 10,000 To Winners

The UP government under Yogi Adityanath has launched a contest that encourages people to come up with creative suggestions on how to prevent further spread of COVID-19. The advertisements were published by the state health department in most newspapers in the state The advertisement states that there are two categories. In the first type, they call for suggestions in 150 words for ideas on breaking the coronavirus transmission chain. The Yogi government is then going to choose ten of the most âoriginal and innovativeâ submissions and they shall be rewarded a cash prize of Rs 10,000 each. © Reuters For the second category, participants are asked to submit a one-minute short-form video with possible ideas like, COVID-19 prevention tips, safety practices to beat the virus, measures to keep physical and mental health in check, and inspiring stories of patients who have successfully recovered from the virus. The best 100 entries in this category will be awarded Rs 10,000 each.
The criteria to judge the videos have also been mentioned. This includes the presentation, content, entertainment value, and technical quality of the submissions. To submit an email ID and a WhatsApp number has been provided. The last date for sending entries is 8 July and the names of the winners will be declared on 15 July. © Reuters Amit Mohan Prasad, UPâs principal health secretary has said that the main motive behind this contest is to defeat the coronavirus pandemic with the help of the citizens. âWe are encouraging people to make videos about coronavirus. One-minute videos have been invited from the public on various issues, including prevention for coronavirus, awareness, and ways to break the chain of infection. Selected entries will be given a cash award,â he said.
He insists that the contest submissions will be considered seriously for further action, âWe will work further on the basis of fresh ideas received from the public,â he added. © Reuters The opposition was rather critical of the move. Congress MLC Deepak Singh said the state government should be focused on measures that would give tangible results instead. âIf it is indeed concerned about the welfare of the people, then they should be informed about correct figures of coronavirus cases and more testing should be done,â he said.
Singh added that the government processes with regard to COVID-19 needed to be streamlined. âIt is a government led by people who believe in crazy ideas like clapping and banging plates to beat COVID. They have absolutely no idea about how to tackle this pandemic,â he added. As of Tuesday, Uttar Pradesh has a total of 22,828 COVID-19 cases, which includes 672 deaths. While the nation stands at a grand total of 5,67,000 cases and 16,893 deaths.

When Despite A Torn Chest Muscle, John Cena Fought The Entire Match Just To Entertain Us

Pro-wrestling may be fake but the injuries are real. I have been talking about some of the most dangerous incidents that WWE stars have suffered through in the past while performing inside the ring for quite some time now. Be it Kane damaging Shawn Michaelsâ skull, permanently making him cross-eyed, or Kurt Angle breaking his neck several times during his career as a âperformerâ resulting in lack of blood flow to his arms and finally atrophying, these are some serious issues and they are very real.  Today, letâs talk about someone very special. Someone who managed to be the face of the company for over a decade and someone who has been one of the greatest influences to the upcoming generation of wrestling fans, even after moving away from the business - John Cena.  There is no denying the fact that Cena looks like a tank. His physique is a testament to the kind of hard work and discipline he has inculcated in his life and chooses to follow no matter what life throws his way.  Also Read: WWE Star Sheamus Tries John Cena's Workout For A Day, Ends Up Flat On The Floor  But what a lot of people do not realise is his willingness to have a great show and make people fall in love with WWE, no matter what. For this, he is ready to go the distance, he is ready to suffer through pain, he is ready to meet any sort of health-related trouble that he might face in the future if it means that the fans are cheering (or booing) and that they go home satisfied. During a 2007 match against Mr. Kennedy, Cena went for a typical arm-drag move, something he does all the time. He tossed his opponent over his right shoulder and immediately knew that something was wrong.  According to reports, John Cena tore his right pectoral tendon in a flash and was in excruciating pain. He moved away from Kennedy and to the other corner of the ring, looked at his arm in disbelief, tried to shake off the pain but he couldnât.  He bent down for a second only to stand back straight up steady his right arm and fought through the entire match with his left arm. He tried to carry out his signature moves just like heâd do in any other fight but you could see his expression change after every bump he took.  On RAW from Cleveland on October 1, 2007 John Cena def. Mr Kennedy. Cena tore his Pectoral Muscle in this Match and Vacated Title next night pic.twitter.com/yknEyV2YOZ â Today In WWE History (@TodayInWWEHist1) October 1, 2017 Cena and Kennedy had to improvise after the injury. The former trapped the latter in his iconic STFU submission manoeuvre and the match got over in a hurry.  But it was decided well in advance that once Cena had won the match, Randy Orton would enter the ring and deliver some hard blows to him as a part of a storyline.  © WWE You could see Cena asking the referee whether âRandy was comingâ or not and when the referee nodded, he was ready to put his body through some more pain.
And like clockwork, Orton slithered into the ring, caught Cena with an RKO followed by a shot by the steel steps and another RKO on the announcersâ table. Keep in mind that even though the moves and shots were fake, Cena had to crash to the floor with a certain whiplash impact which could not have been good for the torn tendon. Next week, Vince McMahon came to the show himself to make the announcement and used the injury to further the storyline between Cena and Orton.  According to the doctors, Cena was supposed to stay out of action for about a year. He came back within four months and the fans lost it too.

Monkey Hanged To Death In Telangana To 'Send A Message' To Other Monkeys Causing Problems

Just in the last couple of months, we've seen some of the worst crimes humans have committed against defenceless animals and those were just the few that someone managed to document. There are probably so many cases that we never even get to know about and the poor animal never gets the justice it deserves. Adding to the long list of reasons why humans are actually trash, the new incident to cause widespread outrage - and rightly so - is the hanging of a monkey. A video of the horrific incident was being shared online and it shows the monkey struggling while hanging from a noose. A visual like that is enough to make everyone recoil and question if there's actually any humanity left in the world. The answer to that last question is no, from what I've seen. #Heartbreaking: These visuals may annoy you. This incident proves again that we are (humans) very dangerous and cruel than all on the planet. A man at #Vensupalam village, #khammam in #Telangana, brutally killed a monkey. Hours after being tortured, the monkey leaves its breath. pic.twitter.com/E3YM7YDj4s â Balakrishna - The Journalist (@Balakrishna096) June 28, 2020 This is intentionally cruel, they're torturing the monkey. Reportedly, this incident took place on June 26 in Telangana's Khammam when a troop of monkeys entered the area and the people there decided to set an example and teach them a lesson. This was apparently done as a way to send a message to all the other monkeys and scare them.  Talking to PTI, Sathupalli Forest Range Officer A Venkateswarlu said, "The perpetrators, who admitted their guilt, are being booked under the Wildlife Protection Act. The accused wanted to scare other monkeys by hanging the one which was caught. We found the carcass in a decomposed state. The accused are being booked under the Wildlife Protection Act." At least the poor monkey will get some justice but we all know, we've all seen that nothing is going to change. So many people commit such heinous crimes against animals because they know there will be no consequences. An eye for an eye? Same treatment should be given to that person â Radhakrishna anumalla (@Radhakrishnaan2) June 29, 2020 Fair demands. Give the same punishment to that basturd accuse â sriram sankar (@sriramyellapu) June 29, 2020 We really do. Sometimes I feel like, humans deserve whatever the shit happening in 2020 https://t.co/qEGFWym4xA â Deadpool Reddy (@DeadpoolReddy) June 29, 2020 Set an example with them, much like what they were doing with the monkey. And we shamelessly still call ourselves human!!! Shameful...rot in hell you brute
Pls take note...such behaviour needs punishment severe punishment@ParveenKaswan @susantananda3 @PrakashJavdekar @SuPriyoBabul @Manekagandhibjp @KTRTRS https://t.co/byITVOVVdc â Payal Mehta/પાયલ મà«àª¹àª¤àª¾/ पायल मà¥à¤¹à¤¤à¤¾/ পাযà§à¦² মà§à¦¹à¦¤à¦¾ (@payalmehta100) June 28, 2020 RIP. I think we lost humanity somewhere, RIP to this innocent soul. i hope strict action should be taken on these people. https://t.co/bhQP0zo3vX â PIYUSH ASWALE (@iam_psg) June 29, 2020 Yes.

6 Iconic Bollywood Lyricists We Grew Up Listening To Who Gave Us The Most Number Of Songs

India has a long and rich tradition of poems and lyrics. It wonât be farfetched to say that we have produced some of the best lyricists ever to have walked the earth. Be it Javed Akhtar, or Gulzar sa'ab, or even someone like Sahir Ludhianvi, we have had so many great lyricists, with such a wide body of work, that it is actually impossible to keep a track of their greatness. © BCCL Still, why not make an attempt at it? We have jotted down the names of a few lyricists who have produced an amazing body of work over the years, and whoâre still going at it. As a result, we cannot factor in the greats like Anand Bakshi, or Majrooh Sultanpuri. © Filmfare Now, we have to address the fact, that there have been blotches every now and then, especially with the current crop of âartistsâ who think that they have revolutionized Indian music with their music and cringe-worthy lyrics.  © Twitter/its_badshah But by and large, we have a rich and colourful history. Here are a few lyricists that have contributed immensely to that history.
Javed Akhtar (About 1200 Songs) © BCCL Javed Akhtar has been writing since the 70s, an era where scriptwriters werenât given credit in a film, so naturally, lyricists were far down the pecking order. Only when a really notable poet would write lyrics for a song, would it get publicised. In a career spanning almost 5 decades, Javed Akhtar has given us some seriously amazing lyrics to some of the most iconic songs. We reckon that he has probably given us more than 1500, or perhaps even 1800 songs. However, because giving credit to struggling writers wasnât even a consideration back in the 70s, we cannot say for sure.
Shitala Pandey aka Sameer Anjaan(Over 4000 Songs) © Wiki Commons If you grew up during the 90s and could read, anytime you picked a cassette case, and read the name of the lyricist of any given sing, you would always find the line âLyrics By Sameer.â So much so, that there was a joke which said that Sameerâs first name was âLyrics By.â Lame jokes aside, Sameer Anjaan has the most credits as a lyricist to his name. As of 2015, he has written songs for over 650 Bollywood films, and a total of 3500 songs. As of 2019, he has over 4000 songs to his credit.
Gulzar (Over 1000 Songs) © BCCL Gulzar saâab has a way with words that is simply mesmerising. You really cannot explain effect his lyrics have, they are something that you just have to experience. He has been writing lyrics since 1961. That is a career spanning nearly 60 years. A part of the Progressive Writers Association, Gulzar saâab has always chosen quality over quantity, and weâre really glad for that. Till date, he has written songs for well over 200 films
Prasoon Joshi (Circa 400 Songs) © Wiki Commons The man who has given us some of the most iconic advertisements in India, and who now heads the CBFC, Prasoon Joshi had a rather short career as a proper lyricist. We genuinely wish that after his stint as the chairperson for CBFC, he starts writing lyrics again. In spite of being immensely popular, and very much in demand, Prasoon Joshi was very selective with his projects. In total, he has written songs for about 50 films in total.
Irshad Kamil (Over 450 Songs) © IMDb Next, we have Irshad Kamil. Irshad is a poet who has been writing lyrics since 2004. Of the current lot of lyricists, he is one of the most in-demand lyricists. He started his Bollywood career with Sudhir Mishraâs Chameli so that should tell you enough, just how capable he has been. 
Amitabh Bhattacharya (Over 300 Songs) © IMDb And finally, we have Amitabh Bhattacharya, one of the most promising lyricists that we have today. Although he wanted to be known mainly as a singer, it was his lyrics that actually made the mark for him. He remains one of the most celebrated lyricists ever and has also won the prestigious National Film Awards for his work. Because he started out in 2008 and has mostly worked with a very close circle, the number of songs he has written is as high. However, weâre pretty sure that weâre just seeing him getting started.

Harbhajan's Heartfelt Video Tribute To Rahul Dravid Sums Up The Fielding Skills Of 'The Wall'

The world of cricket has seen many greats come and go, but there will never be another Rahul Dravid, for he exhibited greatness at its most humble and redefined discipline in the sport. Dignified, fair-minded, eloquent, gentle, yet tougher than anyone will ever know. A selfless cricketer and down-to-earth human being who always did and said the right things; the kind of man you'd want your son to grow into. A cricketer who mastered all the textbook shots to stand firm against some of the best bowling attacks, Dravid will always be remembered for his temperament and patience at the crease which saw him frustrate the opposition by batting for countless hours. And, the fact that the right-hander slammed a staggering 24,208 runs including 48 hundreds and 146 fifties across formats, shows how clinical he was with the willow. © Reuters While Dravid's batting talents surely make him one of the greatest to have ever graced the gentleman's game, it also overshadows his other talents on the field. With the memories of his iconic innings still afresh in the minds of cricket pundits and fans, Dravid, the fielder, still finds himself lurking in the shadows, rarely getting his due.
Outstanding catcher Rahul Dravid pic.twitter.com/DnLQhKlHPV â Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) June 30, 2020 But, on 30th June, it was Dravid and his fielding abilities that rightly became the talk of the town after a heartfelt tribute from Harbhajan Singh went on social media.  Taking to Twitter, the Indian spinner shared a video compilation of Dravid's top catches, celebrating his efforts as a fielder. "Outstanding catcher Rahul Dravid," Bhajji captioned the video. Apart from scoring 13,288 runs in 164 Tests, Dravid also has a whopping 210 catches to his name in the longest version of the game. His tally of catches remains the most by a player in the history of Test cricket. Apart from Dravid, only two more players, Mahela Jayawardene (205) and Jacques Kallis (200), have taken 200 or more catches in Test cricket. Agree 100%. Wonderful hands. I also kept telling Jam to field at short-leg....but he wouldnât come in. Too modest to admit that he was indeed the best in the playing XI at that position https://t.co/9OLW6lsjMQ â Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) June 30, 2020 Wow !! Just wow https://t.co/vQh6Mbb8QX â Ashwin (During Covid 19)ð®ð³ (@ashwinravi99) June 30, 2020 The best of those were off your bowling.... â Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 30, 2020 Rahul Dravid is a gem of a person in Indian team.. he is the one who never expressed any negative emotions against any player in the ground.. Perfect gentleman.. And very passionate on his cricket.. Miss that kind of a person now a days â nimmy (@nimmyspace) June 30, 2020 The word âGentlemanâ belongs only to Dravid on and off filed ð»ð» â UnnalMudiyum Thambhi (@KarthikKumar_80) June 30, 2020 Most under rated player in history of cricket.. â inder keswani (@inder_manila) June 30, 2020 one of the best gentleman to have played this beautiful game..
unfortunately did not receive the support when he led the side..
to me best cricketer India ha ever produced..
even now associated with the game and grooming youngsters#dravidgentlemanofcricket #rahuldravid #TheWall â My conscience/à®à®©à¯ மனà®à®¾à®à¯à®à®¿ (@machanae1) June 30, 2020 This alone shows why Dravid is Indias GOAT...the ONLY team man..batted WHEREVER was needed by the TEAM, kept, slip, shortleg, covers, square and STILL avg more than 50!!! Numbers are NEVER a true reflection of what really is..WITHOUT him ur #4 would NEVER ha â Imraan16 (@imorati) June 30, 2020 The selfless cricketer:
Fielded at any position: slip, Fwd SL, silly point, gully, short MW, leg gully and cherry on cake --wicket keeping.
Show any cricketer worth his salt donning different roles at different times.
By far the best . â Bharat kumar 6871 (@bharat6871) June 30, 2020

TikTok�s Desi Rival 'Chingari' Gets 1 Million Downloads Overnight After Chinese Apps Ban In India

In a surprising move, the Indian government decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India last night. The list included some really popular apps like TikTok, Cam Scanner, and more. Luckily, there are a ton of alternatives out there for almost every app on the list. And if there wasn't an alternative, a lot of Indian developers decided to step up their game overnight to come up with something new. On the same lines, there's now a new desi TikTok rival called 'Chingari'. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Yes, the app is indeed called 'Chingari' and it's essentially a short video platform just like TikTok. Pretty sure most of you guys are hearing this name for the first time. Well, that's because this app was nowhere to be seen on the radar until yesterday.
Now, it has over 1 million downloads on the Google Play Store. It literally registered 100,000 downloads per hour, which is absolutely insane. This was revealed by Sumit Ghosh, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Chingari app on Twitter. 100,000 downloads per hour, guys please be patient! we are working on the servers and getting things up and running asap! pic.twitter.com/h3lGCbe4yl â Sumit Ghosh (@sumitgh85) June 29, 2020 So, what do we know about this app? Sadly, there's not a lot that we know, so far, because the app was completely unusable at the time of writing this story.  We downloaded the app to check it out, but we were mostly stuck on a white loading screen. We think the devs were not ready for an overwhelming response overnight. While most people are on the lookout for a TikTok alternative in India, we're not sure if 'Chingari' is the right one to go for. It seems like a relatively new app made to attract users just in time for the Chinese ban.  We suggest you wait a bit longer till we get some more clarity on the app.

8 Successful TV Stars Who Ventured Into Bollywood But Failed Miserably

The TV industry is filled with enormous talented stars who have also become a household name. But turns out, when these actors try and foray into Bollywood, which is assumed to be the next big step, they fail to carve a niche for themselves. Let's take a look at all the successful TV stars, who made an attempt to venture into Bollywood industry but unfortunately, couldn't survive.  1. Karan Singh Grover  © Twitter/ Karan Singh Grover Karan Singh Grover's debut was in Kitnii Mast Hai Zindagi by Balaji Telefilms and that made him a star but when he forayed into Bollywood, he failed to make a mark, case in point, his movies like Hate Story 3, Alone etc. where he couldn't give his best performance. 
2. Maniesh Paul © Twitter/ Maniesh Paul Maniesh Paul is an established host of the TV industry and he certainly knows how to uplift the mood of any reality show, with the way he comperes. But when he did movies like Micky Virus and Tere Bin Laden, he couldn't do justice to his impeccable wit on the big-screen and certainly failed to establish himself in Indian Cinema.
3. Rannvijay Singha © Twitter/ Rannvijay Sinha After earning the title of Roadies, Rannvijay became a VJ on MTV and also hosted the other seasons of Roadies. But that's not it for this star. When he came to Bollywood and did Toss: A Flip With Destiny, the movie tanked miserably at the box office. He didn't stop and continued playing supporting roles in movies, but turns out, nothing worked out for him. Currently, he is focussing on TV shows and is seen as a judge on Roadies, while hosting other reality shows.
4. Barun Sobti  © Twitter/ Barun Sobti The favourite of all, Barun Sobti became a household name instantly after his serial was aired. The actor then forayed into Bollywood and did a disastrous movie like Me Aur Mr Riight that didn't fare well with the audience or at the box office. He eventually got back to TV.
5. Jay Bhanushali  © Twitter/Jay Bhanushali The actor who stunned us with his fantastic performance in the serial Kayamath also tried his hands in Bollywood in Hate Story 2 and Ek Paheli Leela. Unfortunately, these movies failed to strike a chord with the audience. But, Jay still continues to host multiple reality shows like Dance India Dance and many others and we are truly glad he entertains us on TV.
6. Prachi Desai © Twitter/Prachi Desai An actress who aced the role of Bani on TV, Prachi Desai's Kasamh Se became an instant favourite daily soap for us. While she was successfully able to establish her name in the TV industry, she couldn't warrant her role as a Bollywood star, in various movies like I, Me Aur Main, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, etc.
7. Kapil Sharma  © Twitter/Kapil Sharma It goes without saying that Kapil Sharma is called the comedy king of India. But when the same star stepped into Bollywood and made his debut with Kis Kis KO Pyaar Karoon, it didn't catch anyone's attention. Even his production company's second movie Firangi didn't fare well at the box-office.
8. Rajeev Khandelwal  © Twitter/Rajeev Khandelwal After working in a popular TV serial Kahiin To Hoga, Rajeev was highly lauded for his performance in the serial. Post several other shows, he decided to give Bollywood a shot and his first film Aamir came. The actor garnered praises but eventually, with other films, he couldn't find a solid place in the industry.

The COVID-19 cases in Delhi continue to only rise each passing day and recently, according to news reports, the number of containment zones in Delhi has jumped to 341 from 280 as the Delhi government remapped the containment zones following the decision to change the COVID-19 strategy of the government.  In fact, Delhi is the second worst-affected region by COVID-19 with over 80,000 confirmed cases; which includes 2,558 deaths and more than 28,000 active cases.  The reports also suggest that the city reported 2,948 fresh infections over 24 hours - nearly as many as China, where the pandemic began in December 2019.  At a time like this, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said that there is no community transmission in Delhi and there is nothing to worry about. There is no such situation (community transmission) in Delhi today, there is no need to worry: Home Minister Amit Shah to ANI#COVID19 pic.twitter.com/3gaUpx7fvD â ANI (@ANI) June 28, 2020 In an interview with ANI, Amit Shah also quoted Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who had earlier said that Delhi will have 5.5 lakh Covid-19 cases by July 31. Shah said that the remarks made by Manish Sisodia caused âpanic and fearâ among Delhiites and expressed confidence that the stage won't be reached.  Check out the video here: #WATCH After Delhi Deputy CM made a statement that by July 31 we will have 5.5 lakh COVID19 cases in Delhi...there was panic.

In addition, Amit Shah's statement comes weeks after Health Minister Satyendar Jain said there was "transmission in the community" but insisted only the centre could confirm this. However, Jain, who has recovered after being hospitalised for COVID-19, earlier said "in 50 per cent of cases in Delhi the source of infection is unknown".

6 Bollywood Actors Who Are Not Just Known For Their Acting Skills But Are Also Trained Dancers

In Bollywood movies, besides the storyline, if there's another thing that makes it more exciting, then it is the song and dance performances in the film. While a few actors have already impressed us with their dancing skills and we know that they are trained dancers, there are few other actors that have come as a surprise to us.  Here's a list of B-town celebs that we didn't know were trained dancers too. 1. Vikrant Massey © Twitter/Vikrant Massey Vikrant Massey began his career in the TV industry and then ventured into Bollywood with a great movie like Lootera. Besides being a stellar actor, Vikrant is also a trained ballet dancer and has been taught this art form by Shiamak Davar. Not just that, Massey acted as a choreographer in one of his shows called Dhoom Machao Dhoom.
2. Rajkummar Rao © MensXP This will come as a surprise but even Rajkummar Rao is a trained dancer. After giving such impactful performances in movies like Shahid and Newton, the actor has left no stone unturned with his acting chops. The actor was trained in dancing at a very young age and has also learnt martial arts. Way to go, Rao!
3. Vicky Kaushal © MensXP Every millennial is inspired by Vicky Kaushal and his acting skills in movies like Masaaan and URI: The Surgical Strike made him establish his name in the industry. But he didn't stop there and has proven his prowess even in the dancing arena. This fine actor once revealed that he is a trained dancer too and has participated in various events as well.
4. Sushant Singh Rajput © MensXP Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput started his career in the TV industry. But before making it big as a star, Sushant was a part of Shiamak Davar's dance troupe and had attended many events. In fact, the actor was also seen in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's dance performance at the Commonwealth Games in 2010. Aishwarya recently paid a tribute to him on her Instagram story.
5. Radhika Apte © Twitter/Radhika Apte Radhika Apte's acting talent on screen is incomparable but let us also tell you, that even she is a trained dancer and has received many accolades for her performances. She is a trained kathak dancer. Not just that, she has also learnt contemporary dance form in London. The actor has already impressed us with her acting chops, but if she does shake a leg on-screen, everyone will certainly be amazed.
6. Tapsee Pannu © Twitter/Tapsee Pannu Tapsee Pannu is an outstanding actress that we have seen. A quick look at her background and you would know that Tapsee is also an engineering student and has worked as a software engineer. That's not all about her. Tapsee is a trained Bharatnatyam dancer and is said to have participated in multiple inter-school competitions.

Vikas Khanna�s Classy Yet Savage Reply To An Anchor�s Racist Remark Is Making Us Say �Pure Class�

Chef Vikas Khanna, a Michelin star, is known for his impeccable cooking skills and has impressed so many people across the globe, including the Obamas and has done shows as well with Gordon Ramsay. This chef has also written 25 culinary books. Such is the talent of Chef Vikas. © Twitter/Vikas Khanna Vikas Khanna has been proactive in India as well, as he is trying his best to feed the hungry Indians, who had to walk miles to their homes, with an empty stomach. This made him start an initiative to help the poor and offer them food in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
So, recently, the chef was in a candid conversation with the BBC anchor, who surmised without even giving it a second thought and claimed that the chef's kindness of helping others comes from 'his own sense of hunger' while he was growing up in India. Vikas Khanna, michelin star chef, gives it back to BBC news anchor.
Anchor: In India, you were not from a rich family. So your sense of hunger must have come from there.
Vikas: NO, I am from Amritsar, everyone gets fed there in the langars. My sense of hunger came from New York! pic.twitter.com/u06BJDSzvj â Harpreet (@CestMoiz) June 27, 2020 The anchor spoke in a haughty manner âYou have been famous now. You have cooked for Obamas, you have been on Gordon Ramsayâs show. But, you were not always like this. You are not from a rich family so I dare say you understand how precarious it can be in India.â To which the chef quickly retorted "My sense of hunger did not come from India so much because I was raised in Amritsar and we have a huge community kitchen where everyone gets fed. The entire city can be fed from the community kitchen." He further emphasised on this matter and added "My sense of hunger came from New York when I was struggling and really was at the bottom. It was difficult for a brown kid to rise through, someone who had a dream of winning the Michelin star.â He also said âTherefore my sense of hunger came from New York when I was living in Grand Central. It came from the United States, not from India.â This has led to a lot of reaction from people as everyone is lauding the Chef's remarkable answer and here's what they had to say: Aye @BBCWorld r u still on colonial hungover??? â SanathanDharmi17 (@Santhani17787) June 27, 2020 Respect for saying it wot it is. #vikaskhanna Where you come across people in India who don't respect their your country. â Lazy Cat (@uPoliticat) June 27, 2020 @BBCWorld India never had hunger problems till Churchill came along and swindled the millions of tons of grains from India to feed an impoverished army fighting for an imperialist cause. Britain should have the balls to read some real history which is hardly glorifying. â Meliorism (@Meliorism17) June 27, 2020 Okay, that's a lot! I wonder if this @BBCWorld anchor was brought up in an uncultured and an uncouth family where they didn't teach him any civility and mannerisms. â Concerned_Citizen (@ARGHA20) June 27, 2020 Nice slap to racist @BBCWorld â NewIndia_ (@newindia_2) June 27, 2020 He just demonstrated the recipie for "CHUTNEY"!!!𤣠â Vinayak Bhave (@bhave_vinayak) June 27, 2020 @BBCWorld @bbcworldservice

Ref: Your guy taking a dig on indian chef #Vikaskhanna

He has been more or less right making sarcastic remarks.#Britain is infact guilty for the hunger today world is facing.
They robbed most of the countries and left hunger behind@zapatta091 â Chowkidar PK47ð®ð³â¥ï¸ #CountryFirstAndAlways (@Chokidar_AK47) June 27, 2020 @Sonu1999s Vikas Khanna, michelin star chef gives it back to BBC news anchor

Vikas: NO, I m frm Amritsar, everY1 gts fed there in the langars.

Very happy of the reply given by Vikas Khanna. â D Prasanth Nair (@DPrasanthNair) June 27, 2020 They do it deliberately. You should see the extreme condescending tone one BBC anchor used when he interviewd someone from ISRO after mangalyan launch. His question was - "you have 27 % below poverty level people still why are you looking at sky ?" â Ajinkya Jay (@yours_infinitly) June 27, 2020

7 Lesser-Known Cameos Done By The Friends & Family Of Bollywood Actors

Spotting lesser-known cameos in Bollywood films is like a fun game. In fact, each time you come across a cameo, it's like a moment of revelation, considering most of these cameos in the films go unnoticed anyway.  Cameos, however also come with contexts sometimes. For example, friends and family appear for a few seconds in films. This has happened far too many times and has now become a tradition in Bollywood. Here is a list of lesser-known cameos by friends and family in Bollywood.  1. Kiran Rao in Dil Chahta Hai © IMDB Before the film Dhobi Ghat, Kiran Rao made an appearance in the iconic film Dil Chahta Hai in 2001, directed by Farhan Akhtar. There are speculations that this is around the same time that Kiran Rao started dating Aamir Khan.
2. Ayan Mukherjee In Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani © IMDB Directed by Ayan Mukherjee, the film Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani also has a small cameo in the film. It's easy to spot him in the song, Badtameez Dil in the film.
3. Avantika Khan in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu © IMDB From Imran Khan's film, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, his wife, Avantika Khan makes a brief appearance in the song Aunty Ji.
4. Karan Johar and Farah Khan in Kal Ho Na Ho © IMDB We're certain that this cameo was done purely out of the need for more extras for the scene. Farah Khan and Karan Johar made a short appearance as people who had visited the cafe.
5. Arjun Kapoor In Neerja © IMDB For Neerja, the filmmaker used Sonam Kapoor's baby pictures. In one of them, Arjun Kapoor's childhood picture also ends up making an appearance in the sequence.  
6. Neetu Kapoor & Rishi Kapoor in Besharam © IMDB While the role was relatively significant, Neetu Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor both were a part of Ranbir Kapoor's Besharam.
7. Anaita Shroff Adjania In Kal Ho Na Ho © IMDB Anaita Shroff Adajania is a celebrity stylist at a leading Indian publication. But what some of you may not know is that she made quite a few appearances in Bollywood films back in the day. One of the characters that she has played was that of Geeta in the film, Kal Ho Na Ho.

Marvel Fan Made An Iron Man Suit With A 3D Printer & It's So Good That Even RDJ Will Be Impressed

At one point or another, we've all wanted Iron Man's suit, even the people who aren't fans of Marvel. The suit is incredible, wait, I mean 'marvel'ous and it's a fan's dream to feel like Iron Man. © Marvel But, some people can settle for the next best thing - just make it yourself. And, that's exactly what a Marvel fan did. 30-year-old Caio Cesar from Campinas, near São Paulo in Brazil, had the brilliant idea of making his own Iron Man suit with a 3D printer. I mean, just look at it, it looks so good. © Caio Cesar I'm sure even RDJ would be impressed with it, and the best part is that it apparently even works. Talking to LadBible, he said, "I had never cosplayed before, but I always had the desire to bring the armour that appeared on the movie screens into my home, but without spending a fortune. So, I decided to start with this challenge shortly after purchasing my 3D printer and wanted to make the armour as close as possible to the films. It's just my first suit, and I think I've achieved my goal." © Caio Cesar Such a great result on the first try, wow. But, it wasn't an easy task and it's quite a technical and time-consuming project. Jokingly, he said, "Initially a big difficulty was convincing my wife that I was using the credit card for printer supplies!" For the real problems, he went on, "Just kidding - the biggest difficulty was adjusting the armour to my body because, to make sense, it couldn't seem that it is much bigger than me, or that it would be crushing me. The original armour is around 1.88m, but I'm 1.60m so making the scale was very important to obtain a good result." © Caio Cesar "I also had to calculate the internal space for lights, wires, motors, circuits and also the 'shock' points, so that I could move in a satisfactory manner. Another difficulty that appeared in the middle of the journey - which was my fault - was that I accidentally dropped the chest plate on the floor and it broke in half. That made me lose some time."
It seems like a slow process, but hey, the results are worth it. He even shared the story of how he went to a cosplay event and received a lot of positive reactions. He said, "Because it was my first time at an event like this, I really didn't know what to expect. I dressed into the armour in a dressing room before going out." © Caio Cesar "At this event, there was a contest and I was pre-registered, but with 20 minutes left I just had to cross the lobby to get to the presentation site and register effectively. The problem was, I couldn't take three steps without someone stopping to take a picture. Even a child saw me passing in the middle of the lobby, grabbed my leg and said, 'Iron man, Iron Man!' I was like, 'Hey, I only have five minutes to cross this room!'"
"In total, I probably took more than 400 photos in less than 20 minutes and I couldn't make it in time for the contest. Most of the photos were with adults. People were like, 'Wow, did you really come flying on this thing?'" © Caio Cesar This is better than actually being in any competition, it's so flattering. For his next project, in true Iron Man fashion, he's making a suit for his wife. Can't wait to see all the great things he's going to print in the future!

5 Phones From The Past That Failed Miserably Because Their Designs Were Awful, To Begin With

Weâve been featuring some great phones from the 2000s that are iconic and memorable because of their designs or their features. However, not every phone launched back in the day was a huge success and some of them donât make sense even today. Companies try to experiment with their designs to be different from the competition but sometimes they just get carried away. Weâve compiled some phones from the 2000s that were a failure because either their designs were flawed or had features that people didnât like. Hereâs our list of five phones that failed miserably because of their flawed designs. 1. Ericsson Xelibri 4 © Wikipedia Commons The entire Xelibri line by Ericsson was a failure simply because these phones never really caught anyoneâs attention. Some of them werenât pleasing to the eye while the Xelibri 4 looked quite awkward for a time when most phones had a conventional look. It looks very reminiscent of EVE from Wall-E and was particularly hard to hold because of its oval design. This was not a practical phone to use even by todayâs standards and we can see why nobody bought any of the Xelibri phones even back then.
2. Motorola Rockr  © Wikipedia Commons The original Motorola Rokr launched two years before the iPhone and was dubbed as the official âiTunes Phoneâ. From far, it looks like a generic cell phone but it had iTunes in-built which was the key selling point. However, the phone could only hold 100 songs which was an embarrassment when compared to a generic MP3 player at the time. It also featured a propriety headphone jack which did not let people use their headphones that defeated the purpose of it being an iTunes phone. To add to the woes, the phone came with a USB 1.1. connection cable that made song transfers painfully slow. 
3. Blackberry Passport  © Youtube/MobileSyrup Weâve featured this phone before for its weird design and could not ignore the Passport for this list either. The phone is wider than my fat face and could not be used with one hand. People complain that phones are getting larger every year but they can still be used with one hand. The BlackBerry Passport was so wide that it would not fit any pocket and required two hands at all times for it to function. The phone did not sell well even by Blackberryâs standards and laid a precedent for future smartphone companies to never make a phone with wide-body designs. 
4. Nokia 7280  © Ali Express The Nokia 7280 looks like a lipstick and was targeted towards fashion-conscious users. However, the phone was more of a gimmick and lacked any functionality which led to this model's failure. The phone was meant to be a statement for its users but the phone never really sold enough units. Nokia did try their hand with a refreshed design with the 7380 that launched as a part of the "lâ amour collection," but that was a failure as well. The fact that neither of the models sold well, it is currently one of the rarest Nokia phones one can own today. 
5. Toshiba G450 © Toshiba We saved the worst for the last since this phoneâs design would confuse anyone. The phone launched in 2008, a year after the first iPhone and was considered the most baffling design by Toshiba yet. Just by looking at the phone, you get anxiety since you canât remember the location of the numbers on the keypad. One had to use keypads as if it was some puzzle and didn't appeal to any type of user. It also functioned as a modem for your laptop and could also be used as an MP3 player. The fact that it has one of the oddest designs in phone history and has an awkward keypad design, the phone never really garnered strong sales to make it a success. It is also worthy to note that people started to switch over to the iPhone which probably contributed to its failure as well.

So, here is a list of five places shown in Bollywood movies that we want to visit after all this is over- Ladakh -3 Idiots  This film is unforgettable and showcased Pangong Lake in Ladakh.

After all, Ladakh is the perfect place to go to with friends after everything is sorted and we have surpassed the pandemic.  Manali - Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is the kind of film that youâd re-watch just to look at the beautiful places shown in the movie and the story that flows along with it. Almost, all of us have made plans to go to Manali after watching this film and why not the Himachal trek showcased in the film would want you to pack your bags and leave.  Darjeeling -Barfi This was a brilliant film with stellar performances by Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor. Apart from the storyline and acting the filmâs shooting locations were beautiful. The film is mostly shot in Darjeeling and Kolkata and both places would want to enjoy the toy train and tea gardens along with witnessing Howrah Bridge and a lot more that both the places have to offer.   Goa -Dil Chahta Hai  This film started the trend of planning Goa trips with friends. But, most of us have cancelled our Goa plans and once the pandemic is over, itâs time to visit Goa.   Kerala -Raavan  People might forget the movie but this film showcased the best setting wherein the song Behne De was shot.

6 Key Things To Consider Before Going Out Shopping For New Clothes In The Post COVID Era

The New Normal - most people on social media and television interviews are throwing around this term as if this is a term that brings hope and a promise of a better future, one in which we will have overcome, and covered up all the fault lines in our system that the coronavirus pandemic has exposed. © iStock What people donât often realise, is the fact that the new ânormalâ is anything but. If we only look at the fashion industry, or simply the act of buying clothes, things are going to change drastically. Now, someone who considers himself to be a fashion renegade, and sees clothes as something of plain, simple utility, one may feel that they arenât that affected by this. However, no matter how much you despise it, shopping for clothes, even if you do it in a very utilitarian way, is an integral part of our lives, especially as social beings. © iStock Unfortunately, things that we had taken for granted for a long period of time, will become obsolete now. Here are a few ways in which shopping for clothes may never be the same.
The Impact On Street Markets © iStock Whether you speak of Sarojini Market & Janpath Market in Delhi, or Linking Road & Fashion Street in Mumbai, street markets for certain are not going to be the same. We donât reckon that the authorities will allow shops in these areas to reopen anytime soon. Furthermore, because social distancing practices will go for a toss as soon as the crowd comes back to these places, it certainly isnât as safe as we would like it to be. Know Your Sizes Thoroughly © iStock It will no longer be possible to try the clothes before you, not in the manner in which we have been trying them out. So even if you get into a high-end, fast fashion store, donât expect that you can simply pick a piece of clothing up, waltz your way over to the trial room, and buy it. Therefore, it is best that you know your sizes thoroughly before you even think of stepping out to buy clothes. And mind you, even if the store where youâre visiting allows you to use the trial room, donât forget that you still have to try the clothes on. Who knows where have they been...
Trying Out Clothes May Not Be An Option © iStock And we donât just mean trying your clothes on, in a trial room. Chances are that most stores are going to limit the stock that they keep on racks, and will heavily rely on window shopping. It is also highly likely, that a store may not even let you touch certain pieces of clothing.
Your Favourite Shops May Close Down For GoodThere is no point in covering up this fact, but the economics of the fashion industry, especially that of fast fashion has gone for a toss. In England, a study has estimated that about 20 per cent of the apparel stores that have shut down, will never get back in business. In a country like ours, where most of the manufacturing is done in the unorganised sector, and where cost overheads are anyway high thanks to the sheer number of outlets that most companies have had to keep. Online Shopping Is Your Safest Bet...Or Is It? © iStock One would imagine that going online is the safest and easiest way to go about things. However, we simply do not have the logistics for it. Then there is also the manner in which certain sellers operate in a very shady manner when it comes to their online dealings. The material, the size & fit of the pieces, whether there are any defects on the pieces - all of these are issues that are synonymous with online shopping in India from most major e-commerce companies. The system desperately needs an overhaul both, from the manufacturerâs end, as well as that from the platform where the pieces are being sold.
Returning Clothes Now Will Become Challenging © iStock Returning clothes, both for online and offline shopping avenues will now be a herculean task. Apart from the issues with logistics, there is also the potential health hazard that comes along with returned pieces. Outlets still need to figure out how are they going to handle pieces that have been returned, provided they even allow returns in the first place. Online portals, too, need to come up with a roadmap on how theyâre going to handle returns.
Things certainly look very bleak for the Indian fashion industry. On top of all these issues, there is also the fact that for most of us, the purchasing power that we used to have is simply not the same anymore. This, along with the fact that the manufacturing industry has taken a severe hit due to a number of factors, and is not likely to resume operations in its fullest capacity anytime soon, means that the future of the Indian fashion industry isnât going to be ânormalâ anytime soon.

Prasoon Joshi Calls Swara Bhasker's 'Rasbhari' Irresponsible & Her Reply Gets Mixed Reactions

Actor Swara Bhasker's latest coming-of-age comedy series Rasbhari is streaming live on Prime Video since Thursday, and recently, Censor board chief Prasoon Joshi expressed his displeasure over certain sequences from the series, asserting that content creators need to be more responsible. He wrote, âSaddened byWebseries  #Rasbhariâs irresponsible content portraying alittle girl child dancing provocatively in front of men drinking.Creators& audience need 2seriously rethink Freedomof expression or freedom of exploitation?Letâs spare children in thedesperate need4 entertainment.â Saddened byWebseries #Rasbhariâs irresponsible content portraying alittle girl child dancing provocatively in frontof men drinking.Creators& audience need 2seriously rethink Freedomof expression or freedom of exploitation?Letâs spare children in thedesperate need4 entertainment. â Prasoon Joshi (@prasoonjoshi_) June 26, 2020 Swara Bhasker starrer Rasbhari is set in Meerut and revolves around a boy called Nand Kishore Tyagi (played by Ayushmaan Saxena), a teenage boy infatuated with his teacher Shanu madam (Swara). Things get complicated when people find out about the teacher's supposed âsex-obsessedâ alter-ego, "Rasbhari".  Check out the trailer here: Soon, Swara took to her Twitter account to explain the purpose of the scene to the CBFC Chief and pointed out that maybe he misunderstood it. 
She tweeted in Hindi, âRespected sir, maybe you have misunderstood the scene. The scene is right opposite to the way it has been described. The child is dancing at her own will and when her father sees that, he feels embarrassed. The dance is not provocative, the child is simply dancing and she has no idea about how society will sexualise this too. This is what the scene shows. #Rashbhari.â à¤à¤¦à¤° सहित सर, शायद à¤à¤ª scene à¤à¤¼à¤²à¤¤ समठरहॠहà¥à¤à¥¤ सà¥à¤¨ à¤à¥ वरà¥à¤£à¤¨ à¤à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾ हॠà¤à¤¸à¤à¥ ठà¥à¤ à¤à¤²à¥à¤à¤¾ हà¥à¥¤ बà¤à¥à¤à¥ à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¥ मरà¥à¤à¤¼à¥ सॠनाठरहॠहà¥- पिता दà¥à¤ à¤à¤° à¤à¥à¤à¤ª à¤à¤¾à¤¤à¤¾ हॠ& शरà¥à¤®à¤¿à¤à¤¦à¤¾ हà¥à¤¤à¤¾ हà¥à¥¤à¤¨à¤¾à¤ à¤à¤¤à¥à¤¤à¥à¤à¤ नहà¥à¤ हà¥, बà¤à¥à¤à¥ बस नाठरहॠहà¥, वॠनहà¥à¤ à¤à¤¾à¤¨à¤¤à¥ समाठà¤à¤¸à¥ भॠsexualise à¤à¤°à¥à¤à¤¾- scene यहॠदिà¤à¤¾à¤¤à¤¾ हà¥à¥¤ #Rashbhari https://t.co/xUAmRBHHjJ â Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) June 26, 2020 This conversation didnât go unnoticed on the micro-blogging site and the post garnered mixed reactions on Twitter.

Freedoms being exploited here. â Monika M Sood (@Soodmonikam) June 26, 2020 Starring Swara as an English teacher with a mysterious sex-obsessed alter ego, Rasbhari is helmed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat and created by Tanveer Bookwala and Shantanu Srivastava.  In one of her interviews, Swara said, âI know the criticism has started. That the Guru is like God, and how can she behave this way? I knew I was going into dangerous territory. But I trusted the director and the writer. I had seen the director Nikhil Bhatâs earlier film Brij Mohan Amar Rahe. I knew I was in safe hands. And I was right.â âOn watching the series with trepidation I was reassured. Rasbhari pushes the borders without getting obscene. Iâm very proud of what weâve achieved. Itâs not easy to avoid sleaze in a film about sexual awakening, first kiss, first sexual experience,â she added.
