These actors, with their various sources of income, have a way to invest in luxurious properties, which aren't bound within the borders of their homeland. In some cases, they have gone out of their way to buy properties on foreign lands, proving that money indeed has a lot of power. 1. Amitabh Bachchan © YouTube/MirchiBollywood For Big B, home is a feeling and not just a place. Besides the few homes that he owns in India, which also come with a hefty price tag, the global icon has also invested in lavish real-estate property overseas.

6 Lesser-Known Facts About Tripti Dimri, The Star Who Shone The Brightest In 'Bulbbul'

After Anushka Sharma's production Paatal Lok won everyone's heart, came Bulbbul, another movie, that received rave reviews from everyone. This movie openly talks about the prevalent issues of child marriage. The heart-clenching plot of this movie is based on a young girl named Bulbbul, who is married off as a child. Set in Bengal in 1881, this movie has a stellar cast including Parambrata Chatterjee, Rahul Bose, Avinash Tiwary and Paoli Dam. But one star, who garnered all the attention in this film, was Tripti Dimri. Her visual flair in the movie made everyone's jaw drop seeing her performance and her stellar transformation, as the character developed in the movie, was highly lauded. Here are some lesser-known facts about Tripti Dimri that show she is indeed here for bigger things. 1. Tripti's Journey In Bollywood © Twitter/Tripti Dimri For the unversed, let us tell you that this isn't the first time that Tripti has made an appearance on the big screen. Rather, she had her debut in 2017, in Poster Boys, starring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade. Not just that, she was also the lead in Sajid Ali's movie Laila Majnu, which earned a lot of praises from the critics and she was paired opposite Avinash Tiwary in the movie. 
2. From Modeling To Bollywood  © Twitter/Tripti Dimri © Twitter/Tripti Dimri Success comes gradually and the same happened with Tripti who took the first step with modelling. Tripti hails from Uttarakhand and ventured into modelling, before becoming an actress. She was a part of various magazine covers and commercials before she bagged the role in Poster Boys. 
3. Her Love For Traveling © Twitter/Tripti Dimri © Twitter/Tripti Dimri A quick scroll through her Instagram feed and you would notice how this actress boasts of stunning pictures of her adventurous trips. From serene landscapes to her trekking scenes, everything has been beautifully captured. These visuals are truly a treat to eyes! 
4. She Also Played Santoor Mom  No one will forget the popular soap ad Santoor but if you don't remember, let us also tell you that the mom shown in this ad, is actually Tripti. Can you believe that? 5. Bollywood Wasn't Easy  © Balaji Motion Pictures © Twitter/Tripti Dimri Nothing comes easy when you are an outsider, claims Tripti. She had also said that she wasn't the first choice for Laila Majnu as she was rejected during the auditions for the film. âI had auditioned for the film in 2016 but I got rejected at that time. In 2017, I moved to Bombay and I got the script again and told my agency that there is no point in trying it again as I was already rejected,â she mentioned in one of the interviews. 6. She Is Inspired By Her Father  © Twitter/Tripti Dimri Tripti's father also wanted to be an actor but since he couldn't, she is fulfilling her father's dream. She said in one of the interviews, âI thought I have no chance in films and so wanted to do TV. I was very confident that I might become a star on a small screen." 
She also opened up about being camera shy at first, but was able to get over her fears and started rehearsing quite a lot to get better at it. We wish her good luck with her career!

Manoj Bajpayee Talks About The Essence Of �Bhonsle� & The Plight Of Migrants In Big Cities

It's no less than a landmark for Manoj Bajpayee who successfully survived in the ruthless industry for over 26 years. For someone who hailed from Bihar to the city of dreams, Mumbai, it wasn't easy to make a mark as he has been tested time and again but his talent spoke volumes of his prowess. There have been many ups and downs but he kept going as he believed in the craft that he nurtured over the years. Now, his next venture Bhonsle has been streaming online on SonyLiv and is worth your attention.  Well, I got an opportunity to talk to Manoj Bajpayee for the TRP points of Bhonsle, the emergence of OTT platforms, the issue of locals vs migrants in a city, as shown in the movie, and much more.  Here are excerpts from my interview: It was to be released in 2018 and after a delay of 2 years, finally, the movie has been released on the OTT platform and will have the voice. What do you have to say about it? We were planning for a theatre release anyway and when the lockdown happened, we discussed the new outlook and that was a marketing call. In the given scenario, theatre wonât give any justice to an independent film like this as you have no idea how many theatres, you would be able to release the movie, how many shows we will be getting. The theatre owners have to take the slots of independent movies as they have big banner movies to cater to. So, an OTT release is a win-win situation for an independent movie like this.  © SonyLIIV From Satya to Bhonsle, do you think that people are now accepting the real cinema and real talent? Well, people do opt for movies that are trashy and add no value to oneâs cinematic knowledge but thereâs a slow and gradual change.
After Satya, the cinema has gone through a lot of evolution as multiplexes have joined in. They needed more and more content to fill the theatres. What started happening was those big producers who had big banner movies started to book most of the screens for themselves and small films started to less importance. It became more difficult and distributors started to play less head. With OTT platforms coming to emergence, there is some kind of relief among the independent filmmakers. Their intent to cater to independent cinema and giving them the space to showcase their work is indeed a great change. I think, in between, they did start drifting away from the independent movies and showing big-budget movies. © SonyLIV Sir, I do agree that OTT platforms did drift apart a bit but over the years, I have come to the realisation itâs the story that matters more than the star value. Well, the star value can add to the fame quotient but the story is what will keep the viewers hooked.
See, I have never been in favour of the star-driven content. I feel that cinema is much bigger than that. If you see at OTT, from dropping the trailer to finally streaming it, people start promoting it because of the content and the shows I have done until now, I just tweeted about it twice and I realized that it has crossed 20 million views on YouTube. Just imagine 20 million views for a filmâs trailer that didnât find a single theatre. Doesnât it teach the fact that content is far superior than any other factors involved? People see it and write about it on social media and through the word of mouth, itâs getting the appreciation it deserves. Stars donât guarantee the fact that the viewers will connect to the story if the content is not worth it. If the content deserves, the viewers become the promoters and PRs of the movie or the show and 1971 is the biggest example.  Thank you all for making 1971 a success and giving itâs due after 13 yrs .@chirucam #1971movie @AmritSagar @BajpayeeManoj @ravikishann

#writerPiyushMishra #ramanandsagar @SagarPictures pic.twitter.com/XBNtSUhDOB â manoj bajpayee (@BajpayeeManoj) May 21, 2020 I always wanted to know why we see a lot of stars heading to promote their movie by going to several city tours and doing gigs to promote their movie but I havenât seen you or many other actors doing the same. Is it some strategic move or you donât believe in promoting your work this way? This trend started with all the big-budget movies who had the extra money to promote their work and that has now become a norm. All these interviews and city tours that they do is because they want to assure that they get good numbers in theatres and this norm has damaged the small films who are shot on fewer budgets. If you start adding Rs 1 to 2 crores just on promotion, how low-budget movies will recover the cost of production when theatres are not favourable to the small movies? I do agree with the facts you just mentioned. Moving on from the business aspect, I would want to appreciate the fact that your character looks real on the screen. You make them look way too convincing and you completely mould yourself in the character. After I saw Bhonsleâs trailer, I saw only Bhonsle the character and not Manoj Bajpayee. How do you manage to do that? Just an approach, Apoorva, and nothing else for that matter. But, I do make a conscious effort to make my character look believable and convincing on the screen. Otherwise, people will not relate to your character. When you make realistic cinema, you have to be in the moment and itâs not like the mainstream cinema. You have to be in the character to survive your movie.  An open letter addressed to Mumbai, my à¤à¤°à¥à¤®à¤­à¥à¤®à¤¿. Do watch this and #BhonsleTheMovie on #SonyLIV. MB https://t.co/4FFZbeRmGQ â manoj bajpayee (@BajpayeeManoj) June 26, 2020All your movies have some or the other socio-cultural messages, be it Aligarh or Bhonsle. This one talks about the plight of migrants and you yourself are a migrant in the city of Mumbai. I, too, have stayed there and the initial period was more of bullying me for the fact that I belonged to Delhi. Whatâs your take on it? The âlocals vs migrantsâ is a very prevalent issue and they have been clashing with each other for years now. Wherever these migrants are coming from have no opportunities in their lands and they converge into big cities for livelihood and whatâs the harm in that. If you ask these migrants to go back, where would they go back? Locals have their own perspectives but you can have a conversation without being violent as we all belong to one country so instead of feeling threatened by the outsiders, we need to start having a conversation as cities are the only places where we have the facilities. I feel healthy debates and conversations are welcomed rather than clash. Before I let you go, can you tell me what according to you are the TRP points of Bhonsle? The TRP points are the script, filmmaking, performances, sound, and cinematography. Itâs uncompromising and it will strike you in the beginning and test your patience, and then excite you and in the end, it will leave you with good memories. People will become the promoters of the movie if they love it.  We hope that people will understand the meaning of real talent!

Locusts Attack Vast Areas Of Gurgaon & Now Delhi People Are Like 'Tiddiyan Nu Dafa Karo'

The ugly wrath of locust swarms is now in Gurgaon, Harayana and these insects have already attacked a few major areas in the city. © Twitter/PrasantKumar Areas with plush greenery were the first ones to be attacked by the swarms of locusts. People living in complexes and high rise buildings of Gurgaon shared videos and images of the same. Other areas including MG Road, IFFCO Chowk, Sukhrali, Chakkarpur, Sikandarpur, etc got covered with these locust swarms.
These crop-eating desert locusts were first seen in an outbreak that happened in several areas of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab etc. © Twitter/TOI The residents are doing their best to keep the locusts away from their houses, by beating utensils, keeping the windows shut and making all sorts of possible noises so that they are able to safeguard themselves against these insects.
The administration of Gurgaon reported, "A swarm of locusts has reached Mahendragarh district and is expected to reach Rewari border. Under the circumstances, Gurugram administration has issued an advisory that people must keep their windows shut and make noise by clanging tin boxes, utensils and dhol so that locusts can't settle at a place." They further added, "Farmers must also keep their pumps ready so that they can be used when needed." Just last month, the chief secretary Keshni Anand Arora had asked the agriculture department, to take all sorts of necessary precaution to steer clear of the potential locust attack in the area. These insects are said to have a great appetite, as they feed on crops and plants, creating major damage and ultimately destroying a large number of agricultural farms. Twitter is now flooded with images and videos of residents, sharing the locust attack that happened in their areas.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput's demise on June 14 has not only left people across the country shocked and saddened, it has also given rise to conversations around prevailing issues in the Bollywood industry, especially nepotism. Recently, Sushantâs father KK Singh in a conversation with an entertainment portal broke his silence about his son's unfortunate death by suicide in his Mumbai residence at the age of 34. Talking to Tadka Bollywood, KK Singh said that his son used to share his feelings with him when he was younger but later became reclusive over the years. "Pehle toh sab bolta tha par last me kya hua, usne bataya nahi. (He used to be frank before, but didnât speak much about what he was going through towards the end),â his father said.

'Fair & Lovely' Might Become 'Glow & Lovely' But We Still Don't Know If The Product Is Changing

Yesterday, the internet was filled with some 'lovely' memes after the news about Fair & Lovely dropping the word fair came out. Now, the memes have become more 'glowing' as the probable brand name has come out. While it is a step in the right direction, of course, removing the word that has perpetuated colourism in the country for years is important, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. We still have no clarity about what the actual product, in the end, will be - the same thing with a new name or a new formula that is not focused on lightening your skin tone? But, we're still on the topic of names for now, and the new possible name is apparently Glow & Lovely. I mean, it's a tiny bit better than fair, I have to give them that, but it's still ain't it. © HUL Conforming that the company applied for a lot of trademarks back in 2018, an HUL spokesperson said, "The company has applied for several trademarks in 2018. âSome of them have received registration, while some applications are pending. We may choose to register other brand names too. We want to manage the unveiling of the new brand name carefully because we want to make sure that the market isnât filled with counterfeit products that are unsafe. We will not be able to confirm what the new name will be."
Let's see if it was all performative, or will they actually do something to undo the years of damage they've caused, but till then, all we have are memes. Nothing can happen without there being a meme on it, it's the law. Good suggestion. How about glow from within? Am good with just that #FairandLovely #glowandlovely â Mini Ribeiro (@MiniRib) June 26, 2020 Movie flashbacks. #FairandLovely#SalmanKhan

*Lovely singh reporting madam* pic.twitter.com/FONot9tYUW â ððððð ððððððð¼ð¿ (@memesoverload__) June 26, 2020 Exactly. 'Fair & lovely' to be rebranded dropping the word 'fair'.
While the attempt is fair (no pun intended), is it really enough? Using the words glow and brighten doesn't really change what the product was built for.
''...a rose by any other name......'' â Avni Raja (@avniraja) June 25, 2020 Just a little disturbing. #FairandLovely
Fair and Lovely products after dropping 'Fair' from their name: pic.twitter.com/2t071AE1xC â Nihit (@21nihit) June 26, 2020 Hmm. When word fair is Dropped from #FairandLovely.

The un-'fairness' of it all. If it's still a 'fairness' cream, doesn't matter what you're calling it. Also, renaming or removing some words, won't erase the deep-rooted biases that have been perpetuated for generations because of such products #FairandLovely https://t.co/SbNCT7lati â Arunoday Mukharji (@ArunodayM) June 25, 2020 Uhhh. #FairandLovely

6 Practical Reasons Why Batman Can Easily Beat Iron Man In A Real-Life Fight Between The Two

Before Batman V Superman came along, every hardcore comic book fan had a theory of their own on who would win in a fight between Superman & Batman. Do we even need to remind you that he almost killed Superman in the fight, and actually just let go of the fight? © Warner Bros. Pictures A similar bout that weâre sure that a lot of people would actually pay top money to see, is one between Iron Man & Batman. Speculations have been going on for decades if not more than that on who would win.  © Paramount Pictures We have reasons to believe that if the fight were to take place in the real world, where there is a thing called science, Batman would win, without a doubt. Even if we allow for some of the fantasy world innovations that we love Tony Stark for, we donât see a chance for the Marvel Icon to win. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures We pick 6 reasons explaining why.
The ARC Reactor Powering The Suit © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures There is no doubt that the ARC reactor that powers Iron Manâs suit is a marvel of engineering, even in the realm of fantasy. While there isnât any feasible power source that is that small, and portable in the real world, let us assume that someone actually manages to make a feasible power source which is that small. 
First of all, it simply wouldnât be powerful enough to power the suit and everything that it is capable of, for a prolonged period of time. Secondly, assuming that it somehow does power the suit and all of Iron Manâs weapons for a prolonged time, it will be highly unstable, and prone to some serious danger, and might even be fatal, if it takes any damage.  Bruce Wayneâs Skill © Warner Bros. Pictures Marvel Cinemas never really discussed this, but Tony Stark actually had a masters degree in engineering physics and artificial intelligence by the time he was 19, and has an IQ of 270. That makes him one of the smartest people ever to have existed. After all, he invented a new element. © Paramount Pictures Bruce Wayne, though not as smart, is no slouch. According to several issues of Batman, Bruce has several engineering degrees, along with a number of degrees on forensics and biochemistry. On top of that Bruce Wayne is conversant in over 23 languages, which actually helped him master over 127 different forms of martial art from all around the world.  © Warner Bros. Pictures This, when compared with that fact that Tony Stark heavily relies on his suit, does not bode well for Iron Man
Metal - Iron Manâs Biggest Strength & Weakness © Paramount Pictures Speaking of suits, Iron Manâs suit would be heavy AF, even if it is made up of nanobots as we see in the NanoTech suit in Infinity Wars or Endgame. Weâre pretty sure that the agility that Iron Man has as shown in the cinema, wouldnât be possible in the real world.  © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Furthermore, the problem with nanobots, even under theoretical applications is that they require stable and high-frequency energy, and mostly tend to fail when the bots lose contact with the collective bots, which acts as a host. 
We get to see some of this theory in action when we see Tony Stark fighting Thanos in Infinity War. The bots from his legs and feet move up the body, to provide an armour towards the upper half.  Then, there is the fact that no matter what metal you pick, it reacts to elements of the environment. It will either be prone to magnetism or more likely to draw radiation. Batmanâs armour, on the other hand, is largely knife and bulletproof, shrapnel-proof, and resistant to flames, and radiation. Yes, it is pretty basic when you compare it with Iron Manâs suit and unlike Iron Manâs suit, can never work like a sentient being, but is less likely to fail.  © Warner Bros. Pictures And it is not as if the armour that Batman uses is made of basic kevlar, it uses the best materials on the planet, to keep it light and strong.
Batmanâs Trump CardThereâs no point denying that the weapons on Iron Manâs suits will be at least a generation or two ahead of anything that the worldâs most powerful military will have, given that Starkâs main business is clean energy, and weapons manufacturing. However, most of them rely on circuits and electricity, which leave them susceptible to a major catastrophe. © Paramount Pictures Batman is known to use harmless pieces of technology to immobilise his foes, and one of them is a high-frequency EMP or electromagnetic pulse emitter. Basically what this does, is completely fry electric circuits, and sometimes even cause physical damage to metals, and render them useless. The EMP cannon was first introduced for a brief moment in The Dark Knight Rises, and is a key weapon in the Batplane, or simply, the Bat. © Warner Bros. Pictures Stark would need some really, really powerful circuit too withstand consecutive and prolonged EMP bursts, something that the compactness of his suit, simply wouldnât allow. © Warner Bros. Pictures Tonyâs Virtual Assistants Are HackableFinally, there is the fact that much of the operations of Iron Manâs suit, is carried out by the virtual assistants, first JARVIS and then FRIDAY. And believe it or not, they are hackable, unless they are stored within the suit itself, which is not the case.  © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures And as big a genius Tony Stark is, when it comes to computers networks and things like that, Bruce Wayne as Batman, is in a different league, with a little help from his trusted butler, Alfred, and Lucius Fox. © Warner Bros. Pictures There is also the fact that Batman has the most powerful supercomputer at his disposal and a backdoor to the United States Defence Computers. The combined computing power that the systems have is just phenomenal. And mind you, he hacked into each and every cell phone, cellular towers in Gotham when he fought the Joker in The Dark Knight. Sure, it may sound pithy, but that was no small feat especially when you consider that this was Batman when he wasnât even going all out. © Warner Bros. Pictures Clearly, in the real world, where Marvelâs fantasy fuelled innovations are only plausible that too only in a far off future, Iron Man doesnât make much sense. Thatâs what makes Batman so loveable, that as ludicrous as it may seem, it is grounded in reality and based on technology that is pretty much accessible now. However, given the rapid speed with which technology is being driven forward, especially when it comes to space research, and military developments, 100 or 200 years from now, the picture may be totally different. Although Batman clearly emerges as the victor now, 100-200 years from now, maybe Iron Man would just wipe the floor with the caped crusader.

Ranvir Shorey Explains Nepotism In Bollywood & How He Doesn�t Get Work Because Of His �Surname�

Actor Sushant Singh Rajputâs sudden demise has shocked people across the country but it has also stirred conversation around nepotism in the Bollywood industry. Post this tragic incident, several celebrities from the industry unabashedly came forward to speak up against this sensitive subject. Now in line is actor Ranvir Shorey who has confirmed that he is also in some way affected by this existing evil in the glitz town that hinders the careers of people who donât belong to the families of influential people - people who come from non-filmy backgrounds.  Recently, the 47-year-old actor took to his Twitter account to reply to his fans in an ask-me-anything (AMA) session. On being asked about why someone as talented as him doesnât get to act often, the Bheja Fry actor spilled out the beans and said that while he is on the search for the right kind of work, he doesn't get enough offers because of his surname. Ranvir interacted with his followers on Twitter by answering their questions related to his work, wherein the majority of the questions revolved around why we don't see more of his work on the silver screen.  Replying to this fan, Ranvir wrote, âFor that, I have to be offered good films. The search is on.â  Thanks! Dhang ka kaam milna bhi toh chahiye na! Koshish jaari hai! ð½ https://t.co/zjk2hMvTSI â Ranvir Shorey (@RanvirShorey) June 25, 2020 Subsequently, another fan pointed out that lack of work results from nepotism. The fan wrote, "Surname ka problem hai." This comment by the fan was in context of the current nepotism controversy which implies that good projects are only given out to star-kids who come from film families.   Surname ka problem hai. â Islamophobic athiest (@akshayisright) June 25, 2020 Without a second thought, Ranvir replied, âSahi jawab! (Correct answer).â Sahi jawab! âð½ð½ð½ https://t.co/HylU6uQwWq â Ranvir Shorey (@RanvirShorey) June 25, 2020On the work front, Ranvir's latest web series Kadakh, which is streaming live now, has garnered immense praise on social media and he has received rave reviews for his performance from critics.  Here's the trailer link of the film: The many moods of #Kadakh.

7 Bollywood Actors Who Have Played Themselves In Movies

When there's a cameo in a Bollywood movie, it usually takes us by surprise as the characters are not unveiled in the trailer, which is what makes the storyline even more exciting. Such guest appearances are quite rare in movies but have you ever thought of cameos, where the actors have played themselves? If not, then you need to check out this list of movies, where the actors are who they are IRL! 1. Salman Khan In Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani © Tips Industries In Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Katrina Kaif is shown as Salman Khan's die-hard fan. There's a scene where Salman does a guest appearance and he essays the role of the star that he is and is seen giving Katrina an autograph
2. Shah Rukh Khan In Fan © Yash Raj Films SRK's movie Fan wasn't about body doubles but it is solely based on his stardom and his die-hard fan, Gaurav. SRK plays the role of a superstar named Aryan Khanna. (Okay don't @ us because he doesn't technically play himself but who else is the inspiration?) This was quite a fun watch for everybody since he was portraying the role of two people at the same time. Kudos for that!
3. Amitabh Bachchan In Bombay Talkies © Motion PIctures Seeing Amitabh Bachchan outside his house, waving to his zealous fans, who wait outside his bungalow every single day is a dream come true for many. Even Amitabh Bachchan has played the role of himself in Bombay Talkies, where he meets his mega fan. The fan's father has a last wish that he should be able to give 'murabba' to Big B and he makes it happen!
4. Ranbir Kapoor In Bhoothnath Returns © B R Films White Hill Studios Ranbir Kapoor was also seen playing himself, opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Bhoothnath Returns. Though it was a known fact to all, that he has a cameo in the film, no one knew he would be essaying his own role. The actor's bit comes at a turning point in the movie, as he is talking about why it is important to cast a vote during the Lok Sabha elections. Even SRK had a cameo in this film, which was in continuation of his role in the first instalment of the movie.
5. Juhi Chawla In Andaz Apna Apna © Vinay Pictures Remember the cult comedy movie, Andaz Apna Apna when Juhi Chawla played herself in the film? In a scene, Aamir is shown dreaming about romancing with the star and that's when Juhi makes an appearance and Aamir is all stunned, seeing his dream girl.
6. Katrina Kaif In Bombay Talkies © Motion PIctures In movie Bombay Talkies, Katrina makes a guest appearance as herself. A young boy idolizes Katrina, for her dancing skills. The actress plays his muse and is shown as a glamorised version of herself.
7. Dharmendra In Guddi © YouTube/Shemaroo In the film Guddi, Jaya Bachchan is shown as a big fan of Dharmendra and visits the set of his ongoing film, along with her few classmates to get his autograph. Dharmendra essayed the role of Dharmendra for this shot and he also introduces Guddi to his other fellow actors.

5 Dramatic Dating Reality TV Shows To Watch If You're Missing Your 'Tinder Dates'

Dating reality TV shows like Splitsvilla and Love School were popular for the interesting tasks, iconic editing, and the brewing drama among the couples that took place in each episode.  Amid the coronavirus pandemic, as we're all stuck at home reality tv shows have now become more relevant than ever before. Now, that it's going to be a while before any new show crops up, here are 5 dating reality tv shows out there on OTT platforms that you can check out to lighten your mood at the end of the day. 1. The Circle Comic Michelle Buteau hosts a show wherein contestants are locked in separately in small apartments in the same building. However, they never meet face-to-face during the competition and communicate exclusively through profiles created on a specially-designed app as their phones are taken away from them. The contestant who survives and wins the contest wins the $100,000 grand prize. Contestants have the liberty of catfishing other contestants through these online profiles that they create.  2. Back With The Ex In the show Back With The Ex,  people reconnect with their exes and attempt to start their relationships from scratch and reconcile differences. The couples include former lovers who broke up on an impulse and regret their decision.  3. What The Love With professional help from friends in the industry, filmmaker Karan Johar mentors six individuals as they overcome their personal struggles as they look for love.   4. Love Is Blind In the show, individuals are supposed to build a connection with someone without ever seeing their face. When one person proposes to the other person, they can finally see each other but they're also committed to marriage in the next couple of weeks. It's an interesting watch considering some couples are married to this date from the show.

Here�s How To Know If You�re Sabotaging Your Love Life During Quarantine

The worst of Coronavirus is yet to come and that means we will continue to self-quarantine and practise social-distancing for weeks ahead, maybe longer. Now, that may be perceived as good (or bad) news for those couples who are quarantining together during this time. Now, depending on which side of the scale you are on, things may not be going as well as you expected it to be at the beginning of quarantine. So, here are 5 possible things that you may be doing that are sabotaging your relationship with your partner: 1. Living On The WWW © Pexels Being under lockdown or self-quarantining at home means that you have five less things to do. However, that also means that youâre most probably working from home and spending half your waking hours sitting with your laptop and getting work done. Makes sense.
But what doesnât make sense is if you are spending your after-work hours online too. Be it Instagram, Netflix or PUBG, choosing to spend your âfreeâ time online as well, isnât going to help your relationship. And in case both you and your partner work from home, itâs all the more reason for you to go offline and recharge by spending time together - chilling or just snoozing. Constantly being home can be stressful too, can you imagine having to live through that with a partner who is only physically present in the house? Right, that sucks.  2. Ignoring The Need For Personal Distancing © Pexels So, you are stuck with each other 24/7 during the quarantine. Literally. At times it feels as if there is no space to move around in your own house. Which is understandable, because the current situation has inhibited our movement to a great extent, which, in turn, threatens personal space.
From bombing each other's video calls to often getting too involved in the otherâs work life, it might become difficult to demarcate when interest turns into intrusion. So, Iâd suggest being mindful and practising some personal distancing too, just so that your respective personal spaces (and sanity) arenât compromised under quarantine. 3. Being Too Self-Engrossed © Pexels I understand that we have never seen anything like this before, and donât exactly know the correct answer to get through this without ruffling a few feathers even at home. However, if there is one thing that will surely impact your relationship, it is being too self-engrossed.
Do you never take care of the chores? Is it always your partner fixing the meals? Are you constantly complaining about this or that but never returning any of the favours? Well, that says a lot about you and definitely doesnât reflect well on your report card. No matter the tasks around the house or if you need someone to listen to your rant, make sure that the effort is appreciated and reciprocated from time to time. Nobody wants a selfish roommate for a lover. 4. Not Caring About Your âLooksâ © Twitter I get it, you are always home. Mostly working. And no one is visiting, so it should be completely fine to not give a sh*t about what you are wearing or how you look, right? Itâs totally fine to sit in your same pyjamas for two days straight, right? WRONG.
Not only is that unhygienic, but it is also off-putting to look at a lazy partner who doesnât even care to wash themselves up or straighten their unruly bedhead. Self-care is important now more than ever, and the best part is that you can do a lot of self-caring together and keep that intimacy going. 5. Saying Too Much Or Too Little © Pexels Like it is prescribed for any other concerns related to relationships, communication is vital even under current circumstances. However, when communication turns into constant name-calling and arguments (which is very likely to happen, and often) it can harm your relationship.
At the same time, choosing to stay silent or simply bear with your partners nagging will surely pull you two apart over time. Instead, seek out the no manâs land and start off with discussing rather than arguing, and talking instead of avoiding an interaction, no matter how insignificant or uncomfortable you may think it is. Have you been doing any of these since the lockdown started?

'DiRT 5' Hands-On: Taking Racing Games To A Whole New Level With Dynamic Weather & Fun Gameplay

Racing fans donât have much choice these days; either they are stuck playing simulation games or a very casual arcade-style racing game. However, not many games blend the two well until we got to preview DiRT 5. This is the first time Iâve played a âDirtâ racing game that was a breath of fresh air for the racing genre. It seems like developers Codemasters challenged themselves to build a new Dirt game that will appeal to almost everyone.  © Codemasters The new approach to racing games with DiRT 5 may just set the precedent for racing games soon. While racing simulation games have a huge learning curve that kept casual racing game fans at bay; DiRT 5 blends the two styles and made the game a bit easier or let's say less punishing. The one thought that kept reoccurring to us was âthis game is all about having funâ and DiRT 5 lived up to our expectations. 
We got to check out the game with an early hands-on session where we got to check out four different locations. We visited China, Brazil, Norway and the US. However, we could only test one track at each location. For example, when racing in Arizona, USA; you get a glimpse at the full experience you will get from the game. With each different location and track, we got to test different types of vehicles appropriate to the weather and track conditions. There's quite a bit of variety here for everyone to experience where you still need to figure out how every car controls and approach a corner accordingly. © Codemasters  It is also worthy to point out that not all track surfaces are the same and can vary from location to location. For example, the Henningsvaer in Norway is covered with thick snow that has a direct effect on the traction of your vehicle. Whatâs cool is that the weather can change at any time during a race and it will directly impact your race as the surface gets a bit harder to handle. This is all thanks to a new dynamic weather feature that indeed changes in real-time and can get extreme. We experienced some of the after-effects of changing weather but we could only imagine how a longer race will turn out with unpredictable weather. 
If youâre wondering how unpredictable the weather can be, a thunderstorm started to brew in one of our races and out of the blue lightning struck right in front of our car. Not only did that scare us, but it also added to the overall immersion which not many racing games can do well. The thunderstorm slowly changed into a snowstorm which also made us adjust our driving style mid-way of a race. While we started the race quite aggressively, visibility dropped quite a bit after the snowstorm and we had no choice but to drive a bit more carefully.  © Codemasters We cannot talk about immersion without talking about sound design. Even though this was a brief demo of the game; we have to point out the audio took our experience to a whole new level. One can hear every ding, great shift, tiny rocks hitting the car from every direction. Similarly, music is pumped out of speakers on the track and you will hear the music as you drive by these speakers. However, instead of music playing constantly in the background, as you pass these speakers the audio will fade in and fade out as you pass by. This is possible thanks to the 3D audio capabilities that are quite different from other racing games you may have experienced in the past.  © Codemasters We do have to point out that we tested the game on a demo provided by Codemasters and it wouldnât be fair to judge its performance right now. Having said that, the game ran quite well in our tests with some noticeable frame rate drops. There were minor performance issues; however, the developers at Codemasters are already working on a fix. Since the game is set to release in about three and a half months; the early preview of the game left us quite impressed. 
DiRT 5 is set to release on October 9, 2020 and from what weâve seen so far; we canât wait to check out the final build of the game. Itâs been long since an early preview of any game has left us in a state of awe even with its minor problems. DiRT 5 is going to change how we look at racing games and from what weâve seen so far; it has the potential to be the best racing game of the year.

Subramanian Swamy Thinks Homosexuality Is A Genetic Flaw Like Having Six Fingers

Another day, another stupid comment by a politician. Why doesn't anyone learn from their mistakes, why? It's frustrating to see people make statements that are obviously problematic but I guess some people lack the common sense of even knowing that what they're saying is wrong on so many levels. Today morning, for some reason Subramanian Swamy decided to share a two year old article of him calling homosexuality a genetic flaw, and even comparing it to be like having six fingers. First of all - © Twitter And, second of all, are you calling Hrithik Roshan a genetic flaw in a way? © Twitter The obvious thing people jumped to was - 'Hrithik gay?!?!'
Homosexuality a genetic flaw like having six fingers: Subramanian Swamy https://t.co/ytV0HDPNTm â Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) June 26, 2020 If you thought this was a stupid thing to say, wait till you hear the entire story. So apparently, this statement was made two years ago by him after Article 377, the regressive colonial-era law that criminalized homosexuality, was repealed. Reportedly he doesn't have a problem with homosexuality per se, but with people with flaunting their homosexuality. He said, "But they havenât struck down the part which makes it a crime to have sex with animals â there, they draw the line on individual rights. They said what you do in your privacy and in consent is your business. We did not have a problem with that."  Wait, when did animals come into question? I'm confused.  © Reuters He went on, "I have always maintained that itâs a genetic flaw like having six fingers on your hand. Itâs not something that should put obstruction on your normal social being â but on the other hand, having 6 fingers is not normal." 
He really liked bringing up 'having sex with animals' as a point and went on to say, "Sex is sex âitâs an emotion â you have it with animals. Itâs okay to be born homosexual but then donât flaunt itâ¦you canât make it an alternative to normal sexual behaviour."  Okay, I'm a little concerned about all of this, TBH.  Everyone's reaction to his absurd tweet.  pic.twitter.com/yoExjFfdXj â shripad à°¶à±à°°à±à°ªà°¦à± (@shripad__) June 26, 2020 Stick to the status quo. Youâre an economist, not a scientist.

This manâs existence is the only genetic flaw I can see https://t.co/qGll6o4oia â Priyanka Paul (@artwhoring) June 26, 2020 Loophole! If homosexuality is a disease can it pls used as a medical leave of absence from work or school? https://t.co/e4whlz8z4N â human hummus 𤡠(@ya_waitforit_sh) June 26, 2020 Oh no, not Hrithik. I think he just cancelled Hrithik Roshan https://t.co/sMkQtGhvDN â Ravina Rawal (@RavinaRawal) June 26, 2020 When will these days end? Another day. Another fuckall opinion that we have to endure in our feeds. https://t.co/98qCnzwVtD â Vishnu Aravind (@Tractor9699) June 26, 2020 Is it true, fellas? Neither is homosexuality a flaw, neither is Hrithik genetically flawed.
But a lot of straight men lust after Hrithik, that IS a truth. https://t.co/x6L5kEDBDN â PratsD (@pratsd) June 26, 2020 Shame. I have no idea why you posted this. This article is 2 years old but its clear that you still believe that there should be some "laws to deal" with homosexuality. Youre a proud homophobe whose rhetoric is making the world a worst place. Shame on you!! â Anwesh Satpathy (@anwesh_satpathy) June 26, 2020 It's up there. pic.twitter.com/fLMONyOntm â ð¨ððððððððð || ash's girlfriend (@MacDolundz) June 26, 2020 New information. what i understood from this is that krrish is gay https://t.co/wjurWi3My5 â â· (@todorokth) June 26, 2020 Oh, it's fixed. HOMOPHOBIA* is a genetic flaw& the worst of a kind & imcomparable to any others that exist. https://t.co/L5BXA0eIZN â Tanmay V.S (@tanmay_shinde99) June 26, 2020 A simple reply. pic.twitter.com/Wwxg8vtoFZ â Navya | नवà¥à¤¯à¤¾ | Currently PMS-ing (@navsszz) June 26, 2020 Hrithik, you are valid.

Indian politicians are so educated. https://t.co/uwgOR9sQjc â Daivik (@11daivik) June 26, 2020 Exactly. So letâs accept homosexuality just like we did with Hrithik Roshan! https://t.co/E7IyzpRsuK pic.twitter.com/TdQCyoOIkx â al-iz-eh! (@guiltypressurre) June 26, 2020 We all live in a yellow submarine.

Why Tiger Shroff's Baggy Pants With A Fanny Pack Is A Smart Style Move Amid Social Distancing

As we're coming towards the end of Unlock 1.0 in the country, people have started stepping out more. Although we're still supposed to practice social distancing and step out only when necessary, work has slowly begun to resume in most industries.  Even in Bollywood, things that can take place without having a huge number of people involved, have resumed. For example, dubbing sessions, in house shooting with not more than 5 people etcetera. Only yesterday, Tiger Shroff and Abhishek Bachchan were spotted post their dubbing sessions in Mumbai city. While Abhishek Bachchan was dubbing for his new web-series, Breathe, which is going to drop soon on Prime Video, Tiger was busy with another project. Stepping out in the middle of a pandemic is very different from how people would step out before. And people, obviously, chose the most comfortable outfits for these trips.  Tiger Shroff has always been a big believer in keeping things trendy and yet utilitarian at the same time. Case in point, his recent outfit. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani Now, a fanny pack in unprecedented situations like a pandemic is a blessing in disguise. While stepping out, one can easily put all the essentials needed in this bag like a hand sanitiser, masks, wallet, and even their phone. One does not have to pull a bag down and look for these things constantly. © Viral Bhayani Coming back to Tiger Shroff, it's definitely a smart decision to carry a fanny pack and we definitely recommend it for grocery trips right now while practising social distancing.

Here Are The Real-Life Partners Of 7 Actors From The Popular Series 'Mirzapur'

After the release of Mirzapur on an OTT platform, this crime thriller became a huge success and fans couldn't stop raving about it. The series is about two brothers who find themselves in the immense powerplay of drugs and violence. The show further delves deeper into the dark side of the mafia world and has captured it quite wonderfully. If season 1 made you watch it in one sitting, there's also season 2 of Mirzapur coming soon on the digital platform. Here's a list of Mirzapur cast and their real-life partners so you know what your favourite actors are up to. 1. Pankaj Tripathi © Twitter/PankajTripathi In Mirzapur, Pankaj Tripathi takes the lead and is shown as the mafia boss. In real life though, the actor is married to Mridula Tripathi for 14 years and the couple has a daughter. While his on-screen presence is highly appreciated, even Pankaj and Mridula's love story sounds no less than a heartwarming classic romantic movie.
2. Ali Fazal © Twitter/AliFazal Ali Fazal plays the role of the lawyer's son, Guddu Pandit and is another gun-toting gangster on the show. The actor fell in love with his Fukrey co-star, Richa Chaddha and the couple were reportedly going to get married in April 2020. But due to the pandemic, they decided to wait for a little while.
3. Vikrant Massey © Twitter/VikrantMassey Vikrant Massey essays the role of Bablu Pandit, who is Guddu's brother in the show. The actor received a lot of appreciation for his role in the web-series. Not just that, he was lauded even for Chhapaak and Broken But Beautiful series. In real life, Vikrant got engaged in 2019 to his co-star Sheetal Thakur from Broken But Beautiful, who essayed the role of Vikrant's love interest on the show. The couple was said to tie the knot in 2020 but amidst the pandemic, the plan stands still at the moment.
4. Divyendu Sharma © Twitter/DivyenduSharma More than Mirzapur, you might remember Divyendu playing the role of Liquid in Pyaar Ka Punchnama. In real life, Divyendu was always low-key about his personal life. For the unversed, he married his college mate, Akanksha, post his Bollywood debut in 2011. The couple is happily married ever since and we see them posting pictures with each other, time and again.
5. Shweta Tripathi © Twitter/ShewtaTripathi Shweta Tripathi plays the role of a straightforward girl in the series. Besides Mirzapur, even Shweta is known for her many roles in versatile movies and web series. In real life, the actor tied the knot back in 2018 with her longtime partner, Chaitnya Sharma who happens to be a rapper.
6. Rasika Dugal © Twitter/RasikaDugal The talented actor Rasika Dugal essays the role of Beena Tripathi on the show. Besides Mirzapur, she has many shows to her credit which she is popular for. She is definitely enjoying all the attention and fame at the moment. Rasika has been married to actor Mukul Chaddha since 2010. The duo is currently making the most of the quarantine phase by doing all the house chores together.
7. Abhishek Banerjee © Twitter/AbhishekBanerjee Abhishek Banerjee has successfully made a name for himself in the industry with his significant roles in the webspace arena with Paatal Lok and movies like Dream Girl, Bala and Stree. The talented actor, in real life, is married to model, interior designer and an architect Tina Noronha and the couple are together since 2014.
Bonus info: Harshita Gaur © Twitter/HarshitaGaur Harshita Gaur essays the role of Dimpy Pandit in the gangster drama. On the professional front, Harshita has made it big in the webspace with series like Sadda Haq and Happily Ever After. On the personal front though, there were rumours related to her link-ups with her co-star, Naveen, which the actress later denied and broke her silence, by saying they are just good friends. 
She said in one of the interviews "That's okay, as long as people have something to talk about you. But I find it really amusing. Honestly, such link-ups don't bother me. Naveen and I were doing a series, where the couple is madly in love and doing everything to get married and while shooting, we became really good friends. So, I think the vibe was created like that."

6 Abhay Deol Films That Flopped Despite Having Stellar & Promising Content

After Sushant Singh Rajput's death, many actors and artists have been coming forward in the wake of the recent turbulent scenario and are talking about the lobbying culture present within Bollywood, and the pressing issues related to nepotism that have been around for decades, choking the industry from within. 
Even actor Abhay Deol has been making a point on his Instagram feed, sharing glimpses of the films he has done, garnering attention on the  âcovert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you.â  The actor, who is trying to hold a mirror to the world and show the dark side of the industry, is definitely not going unheard this time.  And so, here are 6 films of Abhay Deol that sadly flopped at the box office, despite having an amazing concept which we regret not appreciating more at the time. Take a look:  1. Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!   Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! came out a year after Abhay gave the cult classic movie Dev D. The movie had a stellar cast that included Richa Chadha and Paresh Rawal as well, whose extraordinary performances in the film were highly appreciated.  The movie was touted to be a major release, given how Abhay was out picking contemporary roles for himself, which helped him garner a lot of fame.  But the timing of the release of the film was not as lucky as the title. The movie came out just after the deadly 26/11 Mumbai terror attack and that's considered to be one of the major reasons why it tanked at the box office, despite having such a good and unique concept.  2. Road, Movie   Road, Movie came out in 2010 after being premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009. The movie is certainly a blissful watch as it takes you on a tour, exploring the heart of India, capturing the Indian landscape.  The story revolves around a young lad, Vishnu played by Abhay Deol who tours around, showing movies in rural areas. The concept, despite being fresh and new, went under the radar and passed away like any other film.  3. Socha Na Tha  Socha Na Tha was Imitiaz Ali's very first movie, where a young, dimpled Abhay Deol made his debut in Bollywood. The actor earned high praise for this movie but despite having a good romantic concept, it tanked at the box office.  But we certainly have to credit the unconventional comedy and his character development in the movie, which is quite unforgettable.  4. Manorama Six Feet Under    What makes Abhay's choice of scripts unique is that he doesn't stick to conventional, larger-than-life stories and likes to venture into something more experimental. Case in point, his film Manorama Six Feet Under.  Even though the film is rated 7.8 by IMDb, the film's narrative couldn't keep the audience enticed. This choice of film was yet another extraordinary one made by Abhay and with high critical acclaim, the movie still couldn't survive at the box office. Too bad!  5. Ek Chalis Ki Last Local   Ek Chalis Ki Last Local is a story that revolves around two people who happen to miss the last local train. The movie had an intriguing plot with uncertain and alarming twists.  Yet another unforgettable one with Abhay's captivating performance, this film fell flat and couldn't soar high at the box office.  6. Shanghai   A film that's entertaining and also thought-provoking, Shanghai didn't fail to make an impact, however, it deserved to receive more acclaim.  Director Dibakar Banerjee kept the audience intrigued with a rather creative concept and given the political storyline it had, it definitely counts as a must-watch. The movie was hailed for having a unique voice and despite all of that, it failed miserably. Heartbreaking indeed.

7 Movies In Which Nawazuddin Went Unnoticed Because We Were Busy Looking At The Lead Characters

For all the controversies that he finds himself embroiled in, there is no denying the fact that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a self-made man. He really has worked his way up from the bottom of the ladder. We are well aware that Nawaz has a long and well-documented history of struggling that he has played a number of minor roles throughout his life. © Reuters What we bet most of you didnât know, is that he has been a minor character in some pretty iconic films. It truly is amazing when we see at everything that the man has done, considering where he started. © Twitter/Nawazuddin_S Here are a few films in which Nawazuddin Siddiqui went unnoticed. Weâre pretty sure that most of us failed to notice him, even after he became a household name.
1. Sarfarosh © Eros Entertainment We get why no one would have noticed when the film was out, as this was Nawazâs debut film. But surprisingly, people still find it a little hard to believe that he was a part of the film. Well, if you get the chance, do rewatch Sarfarosh, or at least scrub to the part where Aamir Khan is interrogating a bunch of suspects in a police station.
2. Munna Bhai MBBS © Vinod Chopra Productions Even as a junior artist, Nawazuddin had great comic timing. Just check the opening sequences in Munna Bhai MBBS when he gets thrashed by a couple of people at the railway station when he tries to pick Sunil Duttâs pocket. The sequence is where he was getting treated by Sanjay Duttâs team of âdoctors.â
3. Dev D © UTV Motion Pictures Remember how the song Emotional Attyachar was picturised? Well, Anurag Kashyap sure knows his craft. Nawazuddin Siddiqui was actually one of the actors who sang the song during the wedding procession sequence.
4. Black Friday © Adlabs films Another one of Anurag Kashyapâs movies that make its way to the list is Black Friday. Hands down, this is one of the best Hindi films ever made and will go down as a classic. Remember the sequence where Kay Kay Menon is interrogating a bunch of suspects in a red-lit room? Well, he was interrogating Nawaz in that sequence.
5. Aaja Nachle © Yash Raj Films Oh yes, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has shared screen space with Madhuri Dixit as well. In her comeback film, Nawazudding played the role of one of her servants. In the skit that they present in front of the townsmen, Nawazuddin plays the role of a teacher
6. New York © Yash Raj Films Nawazuddin Siddiqui wasnât just a junior artist in New York. he was actually a very important minor character that helped in furthering the story and driving the plot to its fruition. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the role of a character who, like John Abraham, was detained by the FBI after 9/1,1 on suspicion of being associated with a terroristâs cell. 
7. Ek Chalis Ki Last Local © Quartet Films One of the finest comedy thrillers we have in Hindi, Ek Chalis Ki Last Local is a film that has really aged well and stays timeless. Nawazuddin plays a druggie in the film who harasses Abhay Deol and Neha Sharma, first by the side of a road, then in a bar they visit, and then finally tries to molest Neha, and finally dies in a rather comical manner. Even though he had very little screen time, Nawazuddin did manage to impress some influential filmmakers, who noticed him.

Avinash Tiwary Talks About �Bulbull� & Seeking Acknowledgement As An Outsider In Bollywood

If you have watched Laila Majnu, you cannot help but appreciate the acting prowess of Avinash Tiwary. Well, the movie was under watched and Avinash didnât get the praise that he should have as people didnât go and watch the movie. Then, he was seen in Karan Joharâs episode of Ghost Stories. Now, he is here to entice you with his brilliance in acting as Satya in Anushka Sharmaâs Bulbbul. If you have already watched the movie, it wonât be wrong to say that he did his part convincingly.  © Netflix Well, I got in touch with Avinash and talked about his character, the concept of being an outsider in Bollywood, and what he took back from the characters of Majnu and Satya. Here are my excerpts from my interview:
Avinash, Bulbbul is completely a different take on filming a horror movie. Itâs a mix of many genres which is a rarity. Is that what drew you to say a yes? When I read the script, the screenplay really stood out for me and I found it to be a fantasy set in the period, itâs a family drama, thereâs a hint of a love story, and there are elements of thriller and horror. Literally, itâs an amalgamation of all the genres which I found very rare and I havenât seen such a movie in the recent past per se which is this flexible in terms of genre. If I come to think of Tumbaad, itâs also genre flexible and a blending movie. So, I jumped and took that opportunity.  © Netflix When it was announced that the Laila Majnu pair is coming back together, all the fans who loved you both were excited to see you both again on the screen. How did that pan out and what was your reaction?
I tested for this film and so did Tripti. We both had no idea that we both were testing for this project. After reading the script, I went to met Anvita and asked have you thought about whoâs going to be playing Bubbul. Then, she told me itâs Tripti. I asked Tripti who? She said Tripti Dimri. I, in excitement, said âLailaâ. Anvita hadnât heard of Laila Majnu and she had no idea thereâs a film like that. I got excited and I called Tripti after I left the meeting. I asked her âAre you doing it? Should I also take it up?â. We both were excited and as actors, we loved it for the concept. We got together and it was fun shooting with her.     So, thereâs a scene in the movie where Bulbbul says that all men are alike and you get an idea of how she is seeing in a similar light of the men who wronged her but you, as Satya, had a completely different perspective and you werenât thinking that way. How difficult was it for you to shoot that scene? What went in your head as some scenes do leave an impact? Yes, my character had a different perspective of seeing things, and every time, you play a character, there are certain things that are left incomplete in your head. Be it Majnu or Satya, there are things in the portrayal of your character that you question. Having gone through this multiple times and I am sure Anvita wouldnât like it if I said that I was thinking, how and when did Satya go wrong? I couldnât understand it as I had developed a love for the character but at the same time, you need to understand that he is the product of that time and space. It might be true to that era but in todayâs time, a guy like Satya might not be acknowledged. The beauty of Satya is he has the awareness that he has gone wrong and not many have that consciousness.     The whole idea of the portrayal of men in Bollywood movies has changed as now, we see women are the lead characters and men are being catalysts to their stories. Itâs Triptiâs character on which the movie is based on. Whatâs your thought about this shift? It was happening that it was only men who were playing the lead parts and women were supporting their characters. Thank god, the shift is not opposite to what was happening. Itâs not like that women are playing the central parts and men are seen in frivolous roles. So, itâs a perfect shift as it doesnât matter on whom the story is based on as we all have our equal parts. I donât see any art gender-wise. I keep saying that the opposite of patriarchy is not matriarchy as thatâs not the right way of going about things. All the characters need to edge out perfectly and not personalities. Earlier, it was personality and star-driven. When it becomes story-driven, then this doesnât matter.  © Netflix As you have worked with Tripti earlier too, has the work relationship between the two matured over time as itâs your second project together?
It started with that but then, we both had this realization that we are playing two very different characters.  We are still new to our processes and methods. We did realize that things have changed from how we were in Laila Majnu, as we were new to the craft and now that we have done a film already, we knew that we have certain responsibilities as the movie was such and our parts too were quite different from our first movie. Tripti and you both donât have any filmy connections per se. So, thereâs this ongoing debate about how outsiders are not given the due credits and star kids get it easy. You have had your share of struggles. There are enough actors in this Hindi film industry and I donât understand who we call insiders. Let us just say that these are the privileged bunch of the people. They might be 5% of the industry but the rest 95% are the outsiders. The industry does give them space to work and earn a livelihood. Who decides who the stars are, the audience does. My Laila Majnu as you said you liked it but it disappeared in just one week. Who didnât go to watch the movie? The insiders or the audience? What I can surely say that star kids do have the privileges and they do get it easy and it cannot be questioned. I started acting in 2003 but got my first lead role in 2018. How many actors do you know who can wait for 15 years? It depends on perseverance and how long you can last. These things do make a difference. If in this process, I become friends with people and they call me in their âmelaâ, should I start thinking now that I am an insider and if they donât call me or I donât become friends with them, why should I live my life thinking I am an outsider? I am doing my job and this is a very negative way of seeing the situation.  It's like they jumped straight out of a fairytale. #Bulbbul pic.twitter.com/gX7SA79bzp â Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) June 20, 2020 As an artist, you learn from every character. What are your takeaways from Majnu and Satya? Everyone took something from the character of Majnu. For me, I never saw it as a love story. I saw it as a story of faith. When she gets married, he loses his faith, and then, the downfall starts. Eventually, I realized that love is a great way to connect to the ultimate. I still probably feel love is the only emotion and everyone is just around that. Thatâs one takeaway for sure and also, âhumari kahaani likhi hui haiâ is something that has stayed with me and itâs now turning into a belief with every passing day.  From Satya, I have learnt that ultimate lies in acknowledging the wrong. If I can accept that I have done wrong to you, you are a brave one and also donât be judgemental. When we ended the interview, he concluded it by saying, âWe are not looking for validation but an acknowledgment that we exist. I request all the media people to acknowledge and put it out if they like our work.â

�Fair & Lovely� Is Removing �Fair� From Its Name But People Ask 'What About The Actual Product?'

Well, it was about time something was done about the rampant colorism in the country, but is it actually enough? Hindustan Unilever announced that they will be dropping the word 'fair' from its product Fair & Lovely that for years has perpetuated colorism and exploited people's insecurities. 'What's in a name' can be perfectly applied to this situation as the name being changed of a controversial product has left so many unanswered questions. While it's a step in the right direction because it was time to stop applying that 'being fair is lovely' and changing your skin colour to fit in the society was a good thing. © HUL But, are they actually going to even change the product? How are they going to undo the damage they have caused to people who were 'not fair and thus not lovely' for years and years? How are they going to help change the conditioning that their products have done for a long time? Changing the name is not actually doing anything, barely the bare minimum, if it's not accompanied by a bringing about a real change in the country. At this point, it honestly feels like this-
HUL fighting racism by dropping "Fair" from Fair & Lovely but continuing to sell the product. pic.twitter.com/uZ4Md2xwPu â Sagar (@sagarcasm) June 25, 2020 It seems like publicity stunt if they're going to keep selling the same thing, but with a different name. It's honestly like what Baba Ramdev and Patanjali just pulled; advertising a medicine as a cure for COVID-19 without any scientific facts to hold up that claim. Now, people are already scared in the pandemic and will buy it even if at the end the medicine would probably come out as an 'immunity booster'. They already believe it will cure the disease, even if it was all false claims. Similarly, if the same product is sold, people will buy it because they still know it will be a lightening cream, even if it's not advertised as such. Now, that's just harmful and leaves the name-changing nothing but performative. Another important point - something about these white men being the CEO of Unilever, (the company that produces and sells Fair&lovely especially to regions like South Asia & Middle-East) just doesn't sit right with me pic.twitter.com/RI7rQ5eB5k â Senuvi (@SenuviDulmini) June 20, 2020 "The garbage man is right, promote him to garbage boss." Hindustan Unilever to drop "fair" from "fair & lovely". #FairandLovely pic.twitter.com/Ow7G5umrN9 â Sâ· (@Desimmyy) June 25, 2020 Still unclear. So... @unilever is still going to sell skin lightening cream in South Asia and will just call it "Lovely" from now on? https://t.co/6R5LrhHIn9 â fatima bhutto (@fbhutto) June 25, 2020 Some stupid memes to lighten the mood. Fair from Fair & Lovely pic.twitter.com/FWvtDJtw7c â HITLER (@Humabhizindahai) June 25, 2020 That is embarrassing. Found out that Fair & Lovelyâs brand purpose is âto inspire women to create their own identityâ (direct quote). Absolutely reprehensible - DO something @HUL_News your inaction is embarrassing. â Anusha Subramanian (@Anusha0712) June 24, 2020 Let's see what actually happens now.

Sergio Ramos' 'Free-Kick Curler' In Mallorca Win Is Exactly Why We've Been Missing Football

In the world of football, March is that key month which sets the tone for a thrilling season finale, as it marks the thrilling beginning of a pulsating end to the season. With just a handful, yet crucial, games left in the season, the month puts the best clubs to test amid immense pressure to finish on a high. Then, there is the UEFA Champions League, the holy grail of European club football, which reaches into the knockout stages around March and begins to unravel scintillating clashes amongst the best in the business. All of those things are exactly the reason why March remains one of the highly-anticipated months in the otherwise boring life of a football fanatic. But, in what appeared to be one of its kind, this March wasn't like any other. The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) disrupted life as we know it, with ramifications on the sporting world including football. The major football events including Euro and Copa America were suspended and the club football leagues were brought to an abrupt halt.  It couldn't get any worse for football fans who anxiously wait for an entire year to witness the unmatched excitement and exhilarating contests in a befitting finale to the season. But, it wasn't meant to be. © Reuters Rather than earmarking the dates on the calendar, washing their beloved jerseys and rooting for their teams at the top of their voices in wee hours, football loyalists were restricted to watching archived footage over and over again to get their fill of the beautiful game. And, thankfully, for all the fans, the misery didn't last long as football finally resumed in its own, unusual manner.
Paying special attention to the extraordinary circumstances, the club football leagues in numerous countries resumed behind closed doors where fans were replaced with mannequins in the stands, the chants were pre-recorded and played on a loop and, probably for the first time, the fans got to hear what the players and the coaching staff actually said during a game. It is far from what the football enthusiasts are used to, but no one is really complaining, for it is still better than watching some old footage. While there have been numerous matches across club football leagues that have had their own share of excitement and entertainment, the classic moment that the football fans had been waiting for was perhaps witnessed in Real Madrid's 2-0 triumph over Real Mallorca on 25th June. © Reuters Eager to pounce on the opportunity to go on level terms with arch-rivals Barcelona in the La Liga table, Zinedine Zidane's men were given an early lead after Vinicius Junior scored in the 19th minute. While Mallorca complained of a foul by Dani Carvajal in the build-up of the opening goal, the referee allowed Junior's classy chip-shot goal to stand.
But, the best strike of the night came in the second-half from the pragmatic leader Sergio Ramos. Six minutes into the second half, a Dai Rodrigez handball gave the hosts a free-kick right outside the box. Despite the availability of Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale, the Los Blancos skipper stepped up and doubled the lead for the hosts with a sensational curler. 2-0 Real Madrid. Sergio Ramos scores a brilliant free-kick and doubles the lead. #RMAMLL pic.twitter.com/QEBkY2ai0P â Ademola Victor â (@AdemolaVictor) June 24, 2020 Targeting his spot with pin-point accuracy, Ramos floated the ball over the opposition wall and sent it curling away from a statuesque Mallorca goalkeeper, straight into the top-left corner of the goal post. It was a strike that didn't just look pleasing to the eye, but once again highlighted how effective Ramos is at scoring goals for his team.  Sergio Ramos.

-Can defend
-Move forward and score headers
-Calm from the penalty spot
-Can score direct free kicks for Real Madrid.

What. A. Player pic.twitter.com/SozEKisUf1 â Bill Eshun (@Bill_Eshun) June 24, 2020 Ramos, time and again, has proven that he's probably a striker trapped in a defender's body by his consistent knack for scoring goals despite playing in the back-four position.   Earlier this week, Ramos had entered the history books by overtaking Ronald Koeman as the highest-scoring defender in La Liga history with, following the strike against Mallorca, a tally of 69 league goals overall.  Headers
Free kicks
Link up play goals
20 consecutive pens

Fewest goals conceded in top 5 leagues this season

Most goals (and open play goals) by a defender in LaLiga history

Youâre witnessing the Greatest and the most complete defender of all time

Sergio Ramos García pic.twitter.com/hjR7XiBvn7 â Omar (@casomaro) June 24, 2020 It was only the third time that Ramos had scored from a free-kick in his career, a stat that is still impressive for a central defender. His first actually came against Real Madrid during his stint with Sevilla in 2004/05 season and the next one came a decade later against Real Valladolid.  © Reuters The impressive strike against Mallorca moved him to an astonishing 118 career goals for club and country. And, to put things in perspective, Ramos has now even scored more club free-kick goals than his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo since December 2017. Let that sink in!
During the lockdown and suspension of footballing activities, a lot of people had asked why fans were so desperate to watch their stars in action? or, what made them miss football so much? Well, it's moments like Ramos' stellar strike that serves as a befitting reply to all those who can't fathom the magic and madness this sport brings to people like us.
