  1. Bollywood isn't confined to the same age old clichéd storyline anymore, where every other movie focuses on woman running away with another man, hero going against his family to marry the love of his life or evil in-laws trying to create problems in the lead couple's life. The movies today are focusing more on the socially relevant and sensitive issues that were left untouched until now. The directors and actors are trying to bring about a positive change through their movies and we saw a glimpse of this last year when Akshay Kumar's 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' was released. © Hope Productions 2017 was probably a great year for Akshay Kumar and by the looks of it, 2018 is going to be a great one as well. Not because of his killer line up of movies that are expected to release, it's because of a certain piece of information that will not only make his chest swell up with pride, but leave us overjoyed too. *Drum rolls*, Akshay Kumar's 'Padman' has become the first Indian movie to be screened at The Oxford Union, which is considered to be the world's most prestigious debating society. Twinkle Khanna has been invited to speak at The Oxford Union, where she will showcase the movie 'Padman'. © Twitter Akshay Kumar is one of the very few actors, who not only dared to pick a social cause for his movie but also turned it into one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. And now Bollywood's Khiladi is all set to impress us with his upcoming movie 'Padman', which is inspired by the life of Coimbatore-based social entrepreneur, Arunachalam Muruganantham. Arunachalam fought all odds and overcame several struggles to find a cheaper way to manufacture affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village. © Hope Productions Arunachalam tried to create awareness about the unhygienic practices around menstruation, which is till date considered as a taboo in several parts of the country. And now the whole world will come to know of his efforts through R. Balki's movie that is expected to release on January 25. The Oxford Union was founded in 1823 and stalwarts like Dalai Lama, Salman Rushdie, Malala Yousafzai, Morgan Freeman and Shashi Tharoor, have earlier been a part of this society. And this news was shared on their official Twitter page as well. .@mrsfunnybones is coming to the Union! ð®ð³ð½ï¸ Check out the event and how to ballot for a chance to meet India's bestselling female author, dedicated activist, and former actress here: https://t.co/lqSBMcnKSh.#PadManInOxford — Oxford Union (@OxfordUnion) 17 January 2018 The films today aren't restricted to the Indian audience alone and the immense success that movies like 'Dangal', 'Newton' and 'Baahubali' franchise have enjoyed globally, only cements the same. And now that 'Padman' has paved its way to the Oxford Union, all we can say is there is no looking back for Bollywood now.
  2. I had a friend who was working at a very good position in a renowned coffeehouse chain and from there, he developed a very good grasp on what customers wanted. Thus, one day he decided to start his own coffee house. He realized that his core passion was making coffee and having others enjoy it, so he figured it would be a good business for him. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Thus, he began planning the process he had to deal with while opening his new cafe. He realized that there were lots of other questions he had to consider: The location, taxes, zoning, staffing, and business planning. It did not seem that simple. Consequently, he began researching and talking to people, which all took a lot of time. He had to figure out the location, the staffing, tax implications, the business plan, and so much more. When he thought he was ready to open his own coffee house, what suffered most was the actual quality of the coffee. What could have gone wrong there? Wasn't opening a coffee shop his passion? © Cmerge I hope you can see what happened there and what went wrong. It happens to 90% of us. We are deviated by so many distractions during the process that we forget working on what our actual passion was. So, how do you occupy the place in that 10% of successful and satisfied people? You need to find your epicenter: An epicenter is the central point of something or is the core of anything. In terms of earthquakes, it is where the process begins. In terms of business, it is your core idea, your passion. Why are you actually investing in this idea, concept, or new project? That's the question to ask. This idea of the epicenter comes from a book called 'Rework', written by Jason Fried, the founder of Basecamp. In the above example, my friend's epicenter was making quality coffee. If he had focused on that side of the business and outsourced some of the other work he needed to do, it could have been a different story altogether. Focus on your epicenter: This simple technique allows you to focus on your passion and makes it your top priority. This way you can be more productive and do more quality work. Determine your priority: If your epicenter is your foundation then you can more clearly understand what's necessary to do in the future. So, getting back to Jason Fried, Basecamp turned out to be a very powerful productivity tool for a lot of organizations. When Jason was working on it, he didn't rely too much on outside investors and neither did he have a standard business plan. Instead, he focused on solving the core problem and outsourced everything else. He found out that there was a major problem with how teams organize themselves and communicate information back and forth. He set out to build a product that would help solve that problem, that was his epicenter and everything else flowed from that. He believed, “If you work to solve this problem, the other aspects will get addressed.” Focus your energy: © iz Quotes There will always be other things to do in life. If you can not say no to your colleague while you are busy working on a nearby deadline, you are screwed. You can not always allow things to move the way other people prefer it to be. Start your day by asking yourself what you need to achieve today. There is very good possibility that you will end having a very productive day as compared to days when you just went with the flow. You need to restrict your time and energy to a specific task you want to accomplish. Now, if you want to be successful in your venture, focus your energy on your epicenter and everything will automatically fall into their respective places.
  3. Shah Rukh Khan, also lovingly known as the King of Romance, has had a career that some can only dream of. However, the Badshah of Bollywood wasn't exactly satisfied with all the good-guy, romantic roles that he usually performed. So, he decided to take up bold and diversified roles in movies which didn't really go down that well with his audience. One such movie was the 2017 release 'Raees'. © Excel Entertainment The film starred Pakistani actress Mahira Khan which was a major reason as to why it garnered widespread attention. © Excel Entertainment And despite getting good reviews by the critics, the film was only regarded as a semi-hit. However, it has now emerged as the most pirated film of 2017. Germany-based company TECXIPIO GmbH compiled the list which is based on the number of file sharers who downloaded and shared the respective movies in P2P (peer to peer) networks. This news reached director Rahul Dholakia who took to his Twitter to ask the producer Ritesh Sidhwani about his thoughts on the same. #Raees most Pirated film of 2017. Now how does one react to this ? @ritesh_sid — rahul dholakia (@rahuldholakia) January 17, 2018 Ritesh reacted to this news positively and with his reply, he got our hopes way up as he hinted towards a sequel. Look at the brighter side the audience we have for the sequel #RaeesReturns — Ritesh Sidhwani (@ritesh_sid) January 17, 2018 Now we know it's a little unclear and of course, this cannot be taken as an official confirmation. But being SRK fans, we obviously can't miss out any news concerning the superstar and would always want more of him on screen. Now let's just wait and see if this indeed turns out to be true. *fingers crossed*
  4. Arijit Singh is undoubtedly one of the best singers in Bollywood right now, and his songs are possibly the greatest companion we can ever ask for, especially when we sit with a bottle of Old Monk and cry our eyes out over broken hearts. There are certain songs on our playlist that we always end up skipping and then there are Arijit Singh's songs, which despite being played umpteen times, still are our top choices. Not only does his music soothe our minds, some of his songs leave us teary-eyed by the end of it. © Instagram Arijit is one versatile singer and with each track, he proves why he deserves to rule our playlists. After giving us some of the most soulful and mesmerizing songs like 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', 'Tum Hi Ho', 'Agar Tum Saath Ho', and the much loved 'Channa Mereya'; Arijit is back in action with another soundtrack that we bet most of you will listen to on a loop. No matter how hard you try, nothing can stay hidden from the internet for long and Arijit learned it the hard way after one of his old videos surfaced online. Now, the catch is, he not trending for his songs or his performance. People are losing their minds over Arijit's impromptu gig during a concert. This is what he said, “Somebody f**king fix this mic.” Don't believe us, check this out. Internet was clearly left in splits and couldn't get enough of his 'f**king' accent. That accent man! Faacking ð it was adorable! — Anjuli Rajprasad (@AnjuliRajprasad) 18 January 2018 choked pic.twitter.com/9dxaGn8dj0 — Anurag Verma (@kitAnurag) 17 January 2018 Quotes by some great musicians. pic.twitter.com/uvveenGY3u — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) 17 January 2018 Irshad sir ke Bol â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/XB8T0XT0fW — Hitarth Desai (@filmeyshilmey_) 17 January 2018 We guess the only person who can understand Arijit the most right now is Virat Kohli. After all, he was caught swearing on the stump mic. TWICE.
  5. When an Android smartphone charges a price tag that is worthy of being a flagship device, you tend to scrutinise and compare everything with a top of the line smartphone. An expensive smartphone should have capabilities that can replace your current smartphone and make you want to switch because of new and exciting features. Unfortunately, the LG V 30 is not one of those smartphones even though it performs well as a device. It looks excellent and makes you want to play around with the smartphone a lot, however, it still lacks a few features that need tending to. It offers some great features even though it can't match up to other flagship devices such as the Galaxy Note 8 and the Pixel 2. Here's what we loved about the device and what we disliked that keeps the V30 from being the next big smartphone out there. Design Language and Hardware When it comes to hardware and design, LG has knocked it out of the park with slider bezels like every other full view smartphone and a no nonsense symmetrical design. It has a minimalistic look with no logos in sight and looks appealing to the eye. The smartphone feels great to hold in the hand as well, which prompted me to never put a cover on the device. The front and back of the device is beautiful to look at and has always managed to impress onlookers without any doubt. © Akshay Bhalla In terms of hardware, the V30 has everything working for itself. It has a headphone jack, a metal unibody, IP68 water and dust rating and a microSD card slot. The LG V30 also takes advantage of the headphone jack as it has a higher powered DAC than any other smartphone. The glass back has one advantage though, it works with evert Qi wireless chargers and also supports fast charging if you have a compatible wireless charger. If you are not a fan of wireless charging, it also has Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 and USB-PD which will charge your phone from 0 to 50 percent in 5 minutes. © Akshay Bhalla On the back, LG has equipped the usual power button and fingerprint reader along with a dual-lens camera. The extra sensor is a 16MP wide-angle lens and is not used for taking portrait shots. LG uses an OLED panel for its display which is very similar to the Pixel 2 XL. This is the first shortcoming we noticed as the display has low brightness, looks grainy and makes content look boring. LG's OLED panels aren't really a deal breaker, however, after experiencing other flawless OLED devices, I feel that LG has let us down. The display has an 18:9 aspect ratio much like every other edge-to-edge display and gives the smartphone a 5.5-inch feel. Software © Akshay Bhalla I'm not a big fan of LG's operating system and it remains the same with the V30. It ships with Android Nougat and has removed the app drawer which makes managing apps more difficult. New application app icons are dumped on the screen (just like how it works on the iPhone) and managing or finding apps can be challenging. You can fix it with a third party launcher, however, the original operating system is highly disappointing. The other issue we found with our review unit was the stability and bloatware in the operating system. The device comes pre-loaded with various apps and we often found applications like Facebook and Instagram crashing periodically. LG really needs to fix its operating system in order to deliver a seamless and enjoyable experience for the user. It feels like LG is still stuck in an era when Android skins were despised by users because of how boring and unreliable they were. Camera © Akshay Bhalla The V30's marquee feature is the camera as it sports a dual camera system and is probably the best LG has ever made. The main shooter has a 16-megapixel sensor and is coupled with a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera. We managed to capture images with a lot of detail and bright colours when taken in brightly lit environments. Low-light performance was not as good as we expected it to be and to honestly, we weren't surprised. LG still hasn't managed to master low-light photography and it feels like LG still has a lot of catching up to do. The V30 would struggle to capture details in dim lighting and it can't be fixed even if you try to edit the images. The wide angle lens was capable of taking some spectacular shots and managed to fit in more space around your subject than any other smartphone we know. It did, however, struggle to capture details in this mode as well, but it was kind of expected as the device takes pictures in a lower resolution in this mode. Here are a few sample shots for your reference: A post shared by Akshay Bhalla / Høax (@editorinchief) on Jan 18, 2018 at 1:53am PST Performance and Battery LG's V30 runs Qualcomm's top of the line chipset i.e. the Snapdragon 835 along with an Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Apart from the periodic glitches, the V30 has been a speedy phone and worked well during multi-tasking. Although, if you compare its results with other smartphones, it does not live up to the mark. © Akshay Bhalla When it comes to day-to-day use, the V30 was not exceptional. It would last around 11 hours on a single charge, which is not bad when compared to devices like the Note 8. Thankfully, the phone is pretty quick to charge: When it's completely dead, a 15-minute charge was enough to get the V30's up to between 25 and 30 percent. Another 15 minutes on top of that usually pushed the phone close to 55 percent. The Final Say I was most excited about this smartphone when I finally got it in my hands. I've been using it for a month and feel less obsessed with smartphone due to all the things that bugged me about the device. It feels great to hold but a smartphone that doesn't perform well is as good as the cardboard box it came in. The display isn't' as crisp and the camera does not even perform as good as last year's Pixel smartphone that is cheaper than the V30. So, if you asked me if one should spend Rs 44,000 on LG's offering, I would definitely advise against it.
  6. The 11th season of 'Bigg Boss' recently concluded and Shilpa Shinde emerged as the winner. She beat Vikas Gupta and Hina Khan to win the show and fans have been rejoicing ever since. However, post the action inside the house, it was obvious that everyone's social media following would touch the sky and that's exactly what happened. A quick search on Instagram and you will find that shining blue tick in front of most names. Just because the drama is over, doesn't mean the show is. Known for his warm behavior, Salman Khan set the mood for the evening and partied hard with the contestants. Thankyou for everything Bhai !! @beingsalmankhan thankyou for so much support and love entire time during the show â¤ï¸ I love you Bhai !!

Until the next season begins, we probably will have a lot to hold on to, as far as our favorite contestants are considered.
  7. While hardwork and talent are often the pivotal ingredients in the making of a successful sportsperson, the lack of passion for the sport is capable of affecting an athlete's tryst with greatness. Amongst many sports icons across the country, Virat Kohli is a prime example of how passion can allow sportspersons to elevate their game to a whole new level. It's his passion for cricket that has turned Kohli into one of the best batsmen in the world across all the formats. It's once again his passion that has helped him grow into a ruthless captain. And, it's also his passion that defines Kohli's emotional, effervescent and, at times, firecracker character. The same passion finds expression in everything Kohli does - whether on or off the field. We've seen him blowing a flying kiss to his wife Anushka Sharma after hitting a hundred. Irrespective of the popularity of his teammates, Kohli doesn't shy away from giving a mouthful when someone's at fault. When he's sledged, Kohli minces no words in getting back at his opponents. © BCCL This is a cricketer who tackles fire with fire. And, it's needless to say that he's pretty good at it. Kohli's aggression was once again in full display during the post-match press conference following India's 135-run loss in the second Test at Centurion. The Indian team was blown away by debutant Lungi Ngidi on the fifth day at the SuperSport Park. The 21-year-old seamer recorded impressive figures of 6-39 to propel South Africa to a 2-0 win in the three-match Test series. The Indians, on their part, were expected to do better after the Newlands debacle, but their star-studded batting unit once again failed to negate the South African bowling attack. There's little doubt that the Indian camp was overwhelmed with disappointment. And, captain Kohli's comments in the press conference summed up their mood. Heart-broken by his team's performance, Kohli began by rightly acknowledging the fact that the Proteas were collectively a better side. Indian captain Virat Kohli is angry after defeat in Centurion..Fighting with South African Jouno says I am here to answer not to fight.#SAvIND #Centurion #Kohli #FreedomSeries #India #BBC #SouthAfrica pic.twitter.com/KzTdRa8MFf — Sultan Mehmood Khan (@smk_77) January 17, 2018 "These conditions are something we are used to. South Africa collectively were a much better team than us. We need to ask ourselves if we are giving 120 percent for the team every time we play a ball, bowl a ball or field a ball. As a team we will definitely lay out these things in the open and ask the guys to be honest about what they were thinking about at particular stages of the game," Kohli said. While Kohli minced no words in taking the responsibility for the loss, he lost his cool after a South African journalist suggested that constantly changing the playing XI had contributed to India's defeat. Here's the partial transcript of Kohli's press conference: Reporter: In over 30 Tests that you have been captain, you have changed your starting line-up in each and every Test you have played. I think you would know that to win Test matches you need a lot of consistency, and you have been lacking that part. What would you put that down to, and how would you say that you will continue changing your team and still expect different results? Kohli: How many Test matches have we won out of 30? Reporter: In how many have you changed the starting line-up? Kohli: How many have we won? How many have we won? Reporter: In how many have you changed the line-up? Kohli: Twenty-one wins. Two losses. How many draws? Reporter: How many in India? Kohli: Doesn't matter. Wherever we play, we try to do our best. I'm here to answer your questions, not to fight with you. Reporter: Do you still believe you're the best side in the world? Kohli: Look, we have to believe that we are the best side. Even when we came here, if you don't have the belief that you can win the series here, there is no point coming here. We have not come here just to participate. And answering your question, sir, how many times did South Africa come into the game in India? Come close to winning games in India? Can you count? Reporter: That's because of the spinning pitches. Kohli: But we are not complaining about Cape Town either. The game was finished in three days, one was a washout. So look, we are not complaining about pitches, we are not complaining about conditions. We have come here to play. As I said, we have had equal opportunities to win in both games, and that's the positive we can take out of it, but I'm not sitting here comforting my guys. So I don't know what you are listening to, but I'm asking everyone to be hard on themselves. The fiery exchange between Kohli and the journalist has become the talk of the town now. Every comment that the Indian captain has made is being carefully scrutinised to once again to highlight the fact that he is indeed the 'Bad Boy' or 'Brat' of the Indian team. But, while the scribes continue to sensationalise the incident, the crux of the conversation highlights the bitter truth about the overseas tours in modern-day cricket. © BCCL Cricket fans are currently exposed to a trend of the home teams preparing wickets to their advantage before cutting a sorry figure for the visitors. India were ruthless at home during their gruelling home season last year, but on their first away tour of 2018, they've lost two consecutive Tests and, in turn, the series. And, it's not just India. The Proteas suffered the same fate when they last toured India. It's a case of one step forward and two steps back. Whether it's good or bad for the game, the bitter truth has got us wondering if anyone competes on the overseas tours anymore, given the fact they can always regain points for the ICC rankings at home. Thus, robbing the fans of a good cricket contest which was once the essence of Test cricket.
  8. From the moment Donald Trump decided to run for the U.S. Presidential elections last year, he found himself embroiled in one controversy after another. And unfortunately, most of it was from his own doing. From tweeting explosive statements to his notorious policies, the current POTUS is no stranger to being in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. And of course, 2018 is not proving to be an exception either. Only recently, Trump was accused of cheating on his wife Melania Trump with an adult star- Stormy Daniels. © Facebook Stormy (real name Stephanie Clifford), in a 2011 interview with In Touch magazine revealed all the details about their night together. The interview was shelved at the time. She says that she met Trump first at the American Century celebrity golf tournament in July 2006. “[Trump] was introduced to everybody. He kept looking at me and then we ended up riding to another hole on the same golf cart together.” Stormy said. © Twitter She further added that he later came to the her adult-film company, Wicked Pictures, sponsored and asked for her number, which she gave him, before they posed for a photo together. © Twitter “Then he asked me if I wanted to have dinner that night. And I was like, 'Yeah, of course!'” she told in the interview. Once she reached his hotel room she claims Trump was sprawled on the couch watching TV, wearing pyjama pants. This was followed by a dinner in the room itself. Stormy then reveals that she excused herself to go to the washroom and when she came out Trump was sitting on the bed and he was like, “'Come here.' And I was like, 'Ugh, here we go.' And we started kissing.” After having sex, Stormy said, “We hung out for a little while and he just kept saying, 'I'm gonna call you, I'm gonna call you. I have to see you again. You're amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.'” Although this happened way before he became the President, what has shocked people is that fact that the fling took place less than four months after Donald's wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron. © TWitter For what it's worth, Stormy's story was supported by her good friend Randy Spears and her ex-husband Mike Moz. Stormy also took and passed a polygraph test at the time of the interview. When these allegations came to the surface, Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen denied it outright. “President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence, as has Ms. Daniels,” he said. © Twitter As per the Wall Street Journal, the fact that Ms Daniels also denies these claims now, could be because Trump's lawyer arranged a $130,000 payment to Stormy before 2016 elections as a part of a non-disclosure agreement. Apparently, there's more to this story as In Touch is planning to run the entire, unedited, 5,500-word transcript later this week.
  9. It may look like an innocent link to a web page, but a malicious link that is circulating is causing Apple devices to crash. The link is being described as a 'text bomb', and exploits a bug in iOS and Mac devices. If opened, the link causes devices to freeze or crash. A link that exploits a bug in iOS and Mac devices was shared on Twitter this afternoon, and if you receive this link through the Messages app, your iPhone or iPad can freeze up or respring, and the Messages app may become unusable. © Twitter The link, which goes to a Github page, breaks the Messages app and causes problems on both iOS devices and Macs. Simply receiving the link results in issues, likely due to the Messages feature that lets you preview web links. Software developer, Abraham Masri, found the bug, called “chaiOS,” and posted it on GitHub Tuesday afternoon. Github has removed the repository as of now. He tested chaiOS on an iPhone X and iPhone 5S and said the bug affects iOS versions 10.0 through 11.2.5 beta 5. He has not tested the vulnerability on the latest beta, iOS 11.2.5 beta 6, which was released this morning. The bug can also affect Mac computers, according to Masri. © Twitter It's obviously best not to send the link to friends because it can cause the sending device to freeze up and crash as well. If your device is affected, quit the Messages app on Mac or iOS, open it back up, and immediately delete the entire message thread. On Mac, you'll need to swipe right on the trackpad or right click on to the person's name to delete the conversation, while on iOS, you'll need to swipe to the right on a person's name to bring up the delete option. Readers with long memories will recall that Apple users have been played with by text bomb vulnerabilities like this in the past. For instance, in 2013 it was found that Macs and iPhones could be crashed by a simple string of Arabic characters, and in 2015 an attack dubbed "Effective Power" saw a sequence of characters allow mischief-makers to remotely reboot iPhones.

  10. Are you the kind of man who rebounds like a ping pong ball? A rebound, to put it loosel,y is an astonishingly urgent need to find a temporary fix for a permanently damaged situation. The fix, like the problem, could be anything but more often than not, a rebounding situation mostly occurs when a relationship ends and either party is in desperate need of some smouldering yet exciting opportunity to get over things. To be really honest, women are not that great with rebounds, well, most women aren't. since their emotional healing after a break up takes ample time, they're more prone to attachments and may mistake a probable rebound for a casual, emotionally charged encounter. Men work differently there and I am sure you all agree. Men have a different coping mechanism and take longer to heal from a heavy breakup and so they end up casually flinging around, looking for instant gratification. What they have to deal with, in the longer run, is a different story altogether. A rebound isn't all that bad or challenging an idea and if you find mutual consensus about the same, with another person, it's probably a healthy way to recharge your sense of self. The only thing though is finding a girl who mutually succumbs to the same idea and doesn't get too emotionally involved or attached. So, tread carefully in the rebound territory because the last thing you want is a girl proclaiming her love for you, right after a successful romp! Here are some qualities to look out for, if you're desperately seeking a rebound. The Girl Who Is Looking For Nothing Serious Be very clear about what you want before you hook up with a girl. If you're not looking for something serious, why should you rebound with someone who is? That would be utterly unfair, wouldn't it? Make your intentions very clear as to what you want from the association and then carry on having fun. If you're stuck in the moment with this one and really want to take her to town, then make sure she's okay with being just your fling! The Girl Who Is Not Your Type Look for someone who isn't your type or someone you'd actually like to date. That's the easiest way to weed out probable rebounds from something more serious and concrete. You really don't want to fall for someone when you're still in the process of getting over your ex! Rebounding with a fun girl isn't a bad idea but she shouldn't be someone who is ideal date material or match the ideal woman you'd like to date. As long as you're clear in your head about what you're looking for, have all the fun you wish to. The Girl Who Knows Your Situation The best way to deal with this situation is to make her aware of the situation you're in or been through, which will make your intentions clear to her. She will probably not want to get involved thoroughly, knowing what you've been through or are going through and she will also help you deal with it better. If she knows you're still trying to get over you ex, she will work extra hard to make sure you get there. The Girl Who Limits Her Communication You don't want a girl who is extra clingy and is always calling and texting you. You'll see red flags soon enough, seeing how frequent and eager she is communicating and expecting from you. You're in this to have fun post a nasty break up and you don't want constant reminders from your past or any more baggage. The texts and calls can be flirtatious once a while, maintaining a healthy balance between fun and letting go of the past, slowly. The Girl Who Isn't Interested In Small Talk If she doesn't show interest in making small talk at all, and is up for hooking up and just having fun whenever it's convenient for you two, then she's perfect. You don't need obligated pleasantries before asking her out for a drink each time. The Girl You Can Talk To Contradictory to the above mentioned point. it also helps if you find a girl who you can easily talk to about anything under the sun, without getting too attached. This helps you vent out feelings, on occasion and makes you feel lighter. You can have diverse conversations, not necessarily concerning your past and probably fill a certain void, which was left after your last relationship. Maybe, at this point in time you need healthy conversations, which aren't toxic in nature. So if you spend hours on the phone with her, just talking, then it's a great fix. The Girl Who Doesn't Mind Your Lack Of Interest If you want to be aloof about this rebound and do things at your own time and convenience, then find someone similar, who also thrives on the same subject and doesn't feel bad if you don't respond to texts and calls on time. She should be her own person and not be dependent on you in any way. That's the last thing you need when you're trying to get over an ex. The Girl Who's Fun To Hang With Your eventual aim is to get over your past so you need to find someone who can help you do that. It's true, your happiness shouldn't be dependent on just one person or people in general but apart from keeping yourself busy and doing things you love, you can use a person who is always there to make you forget some bad mojo and give you a good time. If she's a dull and boring rebound, you're sure to miss your ex even more! The key to have a happy and fun rebound is to keep things casual and not let anything get to you from the association. The sex should be without strings attached, the conversations shouldn't get too romantic in nature and hanging out shouldn't be dull! After all, this girl will eventually get you out of your own mental prison!
  11. With her phenomenal and exceptional performances in movies like 'Baby', 'Pink' and 'Naam Shabana'; Taapsee Pannu has proven time and again that she is the dark horse of Bollywood and one of the finest and most versatile actresses of this time. Be it action movies, beating the sh*t out of bad guys, tear jerking emotional scenes or tickling your funny bones; Taapsee has proved her mettle with every role and movie. © Pooja Entertainment After showing us her goofy and funny side in 'Judwaa 2', Taapsee is back in action with another romantic comedy titled 'Dil Juunglee' and if the name does not excite you enough, this trailer will surely intrigue you to look forward to this movie. Taapsee will be seen opposite 'Hawaa Hawaai' star Saqib Saleem. © Pooja Entertainment Taapsee plays Koroli Nair, an English counselor, while Saqib plays Sumit Uppal, a gym trainer and an aspiring poet. Honestly, it will take you two or three more attempts, before you can inch closer to deciphering the gist of the movie; but this wild and confusing trailer and the crazy adventures the two go through, is enough to get us excited. Saqib and Taapsee are then joined by their friends, played by Abhilash Thapliyal, Permanent Roommates' Nidhi Singh, and Girliyapa's Sristi Srivastava. Taapsee's character has recently gone through a crushing heart break and despite being suggested by her friends to not fall for Saqib, she falls in love with him. Years later, Taapsee has now turned into a bombshell and is dating a rich guy, while Saqib has found a partner too. What happens when the two cross paths with each other after coming so far along in their lives, weaves the rest of the plot. 'Dil Juunglee' is produced by Jackky Bhagnani and directed by Aleya Sen and is expected to release on February 16.
  12. There is absolutely no one in this world who has any doubts on Virat Kohli's talent as a seasoned cricketer, husband, captain et al, but there is also this one tiny problem of his that is almost impossible to not see- the man has got no chill. In case you have zero interest in cricket or Test matches, you might not have heard that Kohli was caught by the stump mic, using the choicest of Hindi swear words on the field during the recent Test. During the ongoing Test series in South Africa, Kohli was caught saying “Shaam tak khelenge, inki g**d phat jayegi.” Stump mic catches Virat abusing 'Sham tak khelenge inki Gaand phat jayegi' #SAvIND #SAvsIND pic.twitter.com/8q3crsmZuF — Khurram Siddiquee (@iamkhurram12) January 14, 2018 After this video surfaced online, Twitter had one hell of a time as the development was pretty funny given Kohli's nature. And now, Virat has done it again. During the second Test, when Ravichandran Ashwin was bowling, Kohli tried to 'motivate' him by saying, “G**nd fatti hai b******od, dalo ek jagah pe, chalo Ash.” You can hear him saying the words in this video: And once again, the internet lost its sanity thanks to the Indian skipper: 1. People Are So Impressed 2. Bohat Swag Hai! 3. Dilli Ka Launda Forever 4. Hum Bhi Yehi Soch Rahe Hain 5. Yeh Na Maanta 6. Ji Bilkul! 7. “Guruwani” 8. Seems Like It Looks like his fans don't mind this at all and in fact, enjoy Kohli being his usual self. As for the authorities, hmmm…. we aren't so sure.
  13. Kartik Aaryan impressed us for the first time with his epic monologue in 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama', where his well-produced rant, single-handedly unified the nation's FBB (Frustrated Boyfriend Brigade). Since then, the boy has consistently been on top of his game as far as 'impressing' goes, especially the ladies, and not always because of his acting chops. Also, if you are in Bollywood and get recognised because of your sartorial achievements, you are doing it right. Take one look at his Instagram and you will see what we are talking about. © Viral Bhayani And, his latest airport look is a testament to his ability to marinate in existing trends while giving rise to fresh and new ones. Just like this dope-ass airport style look. Mr Aryan's commitment to the leather jacket is commendable here because we would've totally gone for a comfy sweatshirt instead. But he is not like us. His job description, as an A-list celebrity, is basically to push the boundaries of fashion and give us lesser mortals moments to recreate in real life. © Viral Bhayani But, we have to give it to him, come on. If you could carry off a leather jacket with as much casual nonchalance as this lad here, you would ditch the sweatshirt too. We don't have anything against the sweatshirt, but nothing spells 'bad-sass' as a black leather jacket and you know it. Because, as movies have taught us, it's always the bad guy in the tough leather jacket who always picks up the ladies. Reason? Nice. Boys. Finish. Last. (LOL) © Viral Bhayani Now, coming to his overall look, which can easily be described as a Health Goth's wet dream, we must say that we are impressed. He is wearing a millennial leather racer jacket with a band collar paired with dark grey jeans with black patches, and a tank top to finish off his lady-killer look. © Viral Bhayani We love the Vans grey high tops and the matching black leather backpack from Coach that costs more than a round-trip to Goa. He has kept the accessories absolutely minimal and is sporting a minimalistic blue wristband. Moral of the damn story? An all-black look is possibly the most difficult trend to pull off, considering the fact that it can easily look meh. But on Kartik, this looks fresh, suits his body-type and gives him a rather polished edge.

  15. After Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe has had a pretty interesting career. Taking up unique roles, he has been trying to make a mark as a diversified actor and has been successful to some extent. And his upcoming thriller is just another attempt at it. 'Beast of Burden' is about a man, who in exchange of treatment for his ailing wife, is willing to do anything. And that includes working as a smuggler. © Aloe Entertaiment Radcliffe plays Sean Haggerty, a pilot who must deliver illegal cargo over the U.S./Mexico border in one hour. Alone in a small plane, he is faced with the burden of choosing between his allegiance to the cartel, his deal with the Drug Enforcement Administration and saving his wife. © Aloe Entertaiment The synopsis got us hooked from the moment we read it but the trailer was even better. © Aloe Entertainmen The dimly-lit trailer does justice to the thriller genre completely and the intensity in Daniel's character is probably going to take away the cake. © Aloe Entertainment We do get a small-budget movie vibe as well, however, it's always interesting see Daniel taking up bold roles like these. Have a look at the trailer: Grace Gummer, Pablo Schreiber and Renée Willett star as the supporting cast. 'Beast of Burden' will hit the theatres on February 23, 2018.
