  1. Dino Morea is turning 43, and he still continues to be the reason for the collective weak knees for a large number of women in the country (let's just say worldwide, tbh). When it comes to good looking men, he has always been the forerunner - right from the '90s, and nothing has changed even after decades. He is still as fit, as fashionable, and as charming, and here are 10 pictures that prove that. 1. His outfit at DeepVeer's reception was one for the books, in terms of how to wear a basic suit that looks like a million bucks. (c) Instagram/thedinomorea 2. Bandana for a tie? Bring it on.

No one else can pull it off. (c) Instagram/thedinomorea 6. Dressing down? Do it with checks and denim. (c) Mid Day 7. A floral shirt will always have your back. (c) Instagram/thedinomorea 8. Gentlemen can be lethal. (c) Instagram/thedinomorea 9. You need guts to experiment. (c) Instagram/thedinomorea 10. A blue suit for the days you want to conquer the world. (c) Instagram/thedinomorea

Badshah's Motive Behind Changing His Name Badshah's real name is Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia and he took the stage name after being inspired by none other than King Khan himself. Also, there was a question about his name on KBC for INR 3,20,000 as well! 2. The Science Behind Karan's Airport Looks KJo will reveal that he takes his airport looks very seriously and if he is not caught on the camera, he genuinely gets upset about it. In fact, he does a proper dress rehearsal with his stylist before leaving for the airport and how he will pose. His PR crew informs the paparazzi well in advance to ensure no one misses KJo in action.

  3. After remaining unbeaten in the tournament, the Indian women's cricket team suffered a massive heartbreak after a poor batting display saw them losing the ICC Women's World T20 semifinal against England in the Caribbean last month. Since then, the Indian women's cricket team has been subject to immense criticism. If that wasn't enough senior cricketer Mithali Raj's allegations against their coach Ramesh Powar further dented their reputation. But, while the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is yet to take any action in the case, the home fans finally have something cheer for. Despite all the negativity and controversy surrounding their team, India's T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and opening Smriti Mandhana are taking positive strides to make the nation proud. With the Women's Big Bash League (BBL) currently underway, Harmanpreet is plying her trade with Sydney Thunder and Mandhana is playing for Hobart Hurricanes. And, on 9th December, the two marauding Indian batswomen set the BBL on fire with some slambang batting displays, paving way for comfortable wins for their respective teams. First, it was Mandhana's blistering 41-ball 69 that propelled Hurricanes to a 72-run win and then, came the Harmanpreet show that was comprised of a 26-ball 56 which saw Thunder romping their way to a 28-run triumph. Twitter/@WBBL During Hurricanes' clash against Melbourne Stars, Mandhana opened the innings for her side with Erin Fazackerley. And, despite the early loss of her opening partner, the Indian left-hander went hammer and tongs at the opposition bowlers in a strokeful innings that was decorated with 13 fours. Showcasing wide array of strokes, the 22-year-old brought up her fifty in a mere 24 deliveries. What a knock it was from @HurricanesWBBL gun Smriti Mandhana! #WBBL04 #WATCHME — Rebel Women's Big Bash League (@WBBL) December 9, 2018 Mandhana's innings finally came to an end when off-spinner Erin Osborne sent her back into the pavilion in the 14th over. However, her quickfire knock allowed Hurricanes to post a formidable total of 196 runs. In reply, Stars never really got going in their run-chase as Heather Knight's three-wicket haul ensured they got bowled out for just 124 runs. If Mandhana impressed everyone with the willow, her national teammate Harmanpreet reminded everyone why she's considered one of the most feared batswoman in limited-overs cricket. Locking horns with Brisbane Heat, the Thunder brigade got a flying start with Rachel Priest (49) and Rachael Haynes (36) adding 89 runs for the first wicket. But, Haynes dismissal halted Thunder's onslaught, only momentarily. Twitter/@WBBL Coming out to bat at No. 3, Harmanpreet smashed six fours and three sixes during her knock which was played at a strike-rate of over 200. The 29-year-old raced to her fifty in a mere 23 balls as her side raced to a competitive total of 192 runs. In response, Brisbane Heat found some refuge in Grace Harris (54) and Delissa Kimmince (38) but the target proved a tad too much for Kirby Short's side which eventually bundled out for 164 runs. Not sure what's better...the shot or the kid's reaction! ðð¤·‍â#WBBL04 #WATCHME — Rebel Women's Big Bash League (@WBBL) December 9, 2018 While Mandhana was adjudged Player of the Match for her match-winning knock for Hurricanes, Harmanpreet claimed the same honour for her pivotal innings for Thunder. It was quite a day for the Indian cricket fans to see two of the most destructive batswomen in women's cricket producing gem of an innings in different games.
  4. The Indian cricket team has been blessed with a variety of spinners across all formats. With the Virat Kohli-led side currently battling the Australians in the first Test, Ravichandran Ashwin - who has become a Test specialist for his country - was seen bamboozling the hosts at the Adelaide Oval. The Indian offie picked three crucial wickets in the first innings and then claimed two more scalps in the second innings to ensure the visitors are just six wickets away, with one day still left to play, from clinching an emphatic win and taking a 1-0 lead in the four-match series. But, while Ashwin has spun a web around the Aussies to aid his team, a young spinner from Kashmir has taken the social media by storm with his bowling skills. Believe it, or not, a seven-year-old kid from Kashmir boasts of impeccable spin bowling skills that has even impressed Shane Warne. Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition. — Mufti Islah (@islahmufti) 23 July 2018 In a video shared by a Jammu & Kashmir-based journalist on the social media, the young boy Ahmad, who hails from Ganderbal district of Kashmir, was seen bowling a googly that initially pitched way outside the line of the wickets before taking a sharp turn of more than a metre and clipped the stumps. “Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition,” the tweet read. This is outstanding ! Well bowled young man ð — Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) 5 December 2018 Taking note of the talented young boy, the former Australian cricketer hailed praise at his bowling skills and tweeted: "This is outstanding! Well bowled young man”. Apart from Warne, the video of the young boy also impressed cricket fans across the globe. The video has already garnered nearly 90k views, while it has been retweeted over 500 times on Twitter. Wow masha allah , what a talent , Chinaman in kashmir . — eyelone (@aashirlone) 24 July 2018 What a talent , god bless this champion . — eyelone (@aashirlone) 5 December 2018 Was shown during extraa innings at ESPN as well ... MashAllaha great one from our land — Gowhar Bhat (@GowharBhat10) 8 December 2018 What a ball and above all look at the happiness on his face.. Great talent, India must nurture... — Pankaj Sharma (@journopankaj) 23 July 2018 Magician — Sofi Muddasir (@SofiMuddasir2) 23 July 2018 Well done kid. Keep spinning — Prasant Samal (@SamalPrasant123) 9 December 2018 recruit them young, get Kumble to work with him? — Giri Iyer (@GiriIyer1) 8 December 2018 The caption of the video 'ball of the century' originally refers to Warne's magical delivery that got rid of England's Mike Gatting during the second day's play of the first Test at Old Trafford in 1993. Warne's delivery had pitched outside the leg stump before turning sharply and clipping the top of off-stump. Hailed as the revival point of spin bowling in Test cricket, the delivery was later termed as 'ball of the century' by the cricketing fraternity.
  5. This year has been the year of big fat weddings and the 'baap' of all grand weddings, the Ambani wedding, has begun with great fervour. Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal are tying the knot in a day's time and last night the family hosted a lavish 'sangeet' ceremony for their guests.

  6. This year has been significant for so many different reasons, but more than anything else it was the year of men who made a whole lot of difference to this world and its people. Men, both young and old, who stood up for causes, lent a hand to people in need or took some personal steps to bring about a positive change in the society and people's lives. But more than anything else, they have inspired us beyond all else and given us hope for a better future. One, where people still stand up for others without any selfish motivations and care for others much like their own families. Let's take a look at these 7 men, who made a huge difference to this year, and inspired the young and old of our country. 1. Sudhanshu Biswas © Twitter- _srks 99-year-old Sudhanshu Biswas from West Bengal is a former freedom fighter who selflessly serves the poor, by running schools and orphanages, that allow poor children to get an education and shelter for free. 2.

Now, Dadarao has been filling up potholes in Mumbai to avert such accidents. Already 550+ filled! Hopefully govt wakes up and takes up his job. — Kiran Kumar S (@KiranKS) July 31, 2018 Known as Mumbai's “Pothole Dada”, Prakash Bilhore lost his son to killer potholes that come to life post every Mumbai rainfall, in a freak accident. He decided to stop moping and took matters in his own hands. Shovel and rocks in hand, Bilhore began filling up every pothole he came across in the city. He has filled 500+ potholes so far. 5.

  7. The wearables space, which started out as humble pedometers for step counting, has developed into activity trackers which are incredibly powerful when it comes to keeping track of your movements and health. Now, while fitness bands are increasingly gaining popularity, smartwatches to have started getting mainstream. A smartwatch is defined as a wearable that can run third-party apps. Usually, they are connected to your mobile phone for data access and many even come with onboard LTE support. With so many options available, it gets difficult to choose one, we've made a list of top wearables of 2018 that will come handy to every type of user. 1. Apple Watch © Apple Apple Watch is the most popular wearable device today, thanks to its near-perfect capabilities. While all other smartwatches belong to a niche, the Apple Watch stands right in the middle. In terms of design, it is a fashion accessory, while performance wise it's capable of making calls independent of your phone. The Series 4 comes in two new sizes-- 40mm and 44mm; the latter is available as an LTE (cellular) variant as well. It is powered by a new S4 chipset that Apple claims is two times faster. What's even more exciting is the watch has an improved gyroscope and accelerometer that can now predict if the person wearing it is falling. In case a fall is detected and no movement is recorded on the watch for one minute, it will automatically send out an SOS message. Buy here 2. Samsung Galaxy Gear Sport © ZDNET The Gear Sport is focused on one thing: intensive tracking. It comes with a varied selection of activity modes that will guide you through the motions as it measures your heart rate.

The Mi Band 3 has a 0.78-inch display that is easily visible in direct sunlight. It can track your steps, distance, and also includes a heart rate sensor.

  8. The Prestigious Indian Army has a simple motto for training its cadets: 'we first break you, then make you'. Boys go through gruelling weeks of physical hardship and come out as men fit enough to serve the nation at times of war. Once soldiers are inducted, the Army ensures they are prepared (mentally & physically) to perform at their absolute best, even in extreme circumstances. However, the Army demands certain prerequisites before you can join. The First Physical Test You Need To Clear Is The 1600 M Run. Note: This test is conducted for non-commission entries for the Indian Army, Navy, Air Force and equivalent ranks in Police & Paramilitary forces. © Quora You will get 5 minutes and 45 seconds to cover 1600 M, one second more and you fail. Boys completing the run in 5 minutes 30-45 seconds are taken in Group 2 and allotted 48 marks. For those who complete it in 5 minutes and 30 seconds or less, are taken in Group 1 and allotted 60 marks. The Biggest Mistake Aspirants preparing for this test run for hours trying to increase their stamina. This is an absolute waste of time. There is a simple principle called 'specificity' in exercise science- if you want to get good at 'something' like long jump, do that 'thing' instead of ballet dancing. Passing a 1600 meter run in minimum time is not merely about stamina, it also requires speed and strength. Thus, you need to train accordingly and enhance all those three capabilities. The following training plan will help you to cover 1600M in minimum time and secure you in Group 1 with 60 marks: Workout 1: Run 1600 M In Minimum Time Measure 400M distance and cover its 4 rounds with minimum time. If on the first day it takes you 7 minutes to cover this distance, aim for 6 minutes and 45 seconds the next day and gradually, come down to 5 minutes and 30 seconds and under. Workout 2: 100 M Sprints Maximum Laps Measure 100M distance and sprint as fast as possible. Then walk back slowly, settling your breath and sprint again. Repeat this continuously for 10 minutes. Your goal should be to cover maximum laps in 10 minutes. If on the first day you could do 5 laps in 10 minutes, aim for 6 the next time. Try beating your previous best with each training session. © Quora Workout 3: Full Body High-Intensity Training This workout is for strengthening your muscles to run 1600 M as fast as possible. Start with 10 Burpees, followed by 10 Jump Squats, followed by 10 Box Jumps and at last, 10 Body Weight Lunges (each leg). Rest 5 minutes after this and repeat this cycles four more times. Needless to say, you are not supposed to perform all these workouts in one day itself, as it will simply burn you out. Here is how you have to arrange your training. Day 1 Run 1600 M in minimum time Day 2 Run 100 M sprints maximum laps Day 3 Rest Day 4 Run 1600 M in minimum time Day 5 Full body high-intensity training Day 6 Rest Day 7 Repeat Cycle Important: Rest is a crucial part of this training for boosting recovery. Perform all workouts only once per day for the initial four weeks. From the fifth week onwards, perform all workouts twice per day (morning & evening). Best of luck!

  9. It seems as if Virat Kohli is still hungover from his big fat Punjabi wedding or maybe he's gearing up for the wedding season back home, but he's definitely not shy to show us his dance moves, a fact proven on day 3 of the opening test at the Adelaide Oval. India bowled Australia out for 235 runs, which clearly, in turn, put Kohli in a severely good move. He was seen doing a little 'jig', while fielding, as India was on a 15-run lead in the first innings, before the rain affected the match throughout the day. (c)Twitter Earlier on day 2, the Indian skipper was all geared up after the Aussie batting line-up came under attack by India, but the third day beat the second as he showed off his excellent dance moves out of sheer excitement! Virat's loving it... #AUSvIND — 8 December 2018 The unpredictability of the weather delayed the game by 45 minutes in the morning but that didn't deter the spirit of the Indian team, especially that of Kohli's! (c)Twitter The innings have been quite satisfactory for the Indian team so far, after setting a score of 250, Indian pacer Ishant Sharma dismissed opener, Aaron Finch, for a duck, followed by spinner Ravichandran Ashwin picking up 3 important wickets, dismissing Marcus Harris, Usman Khwaja and Shaun Marsh. But Kohli still stole the show for us with his epic on-field dance moves. No wonder Anushka seems happier by day, as it looks like he is clearly keeping her entertained!
  10. Here's something equally hilarious and sad for all the Avengers fans out there. The Avengers have a new enemy and this time it's not Thanos, it's Deadpool! Yes, you read that right. In what seems to be a disappointing yet funny account of hacking done right, the 'Avengers: Endgame' URL redirects the users to the 20th Century Fox's website for 'Once Upon A Deadpool', the upcoming re-release of 'Deadpool 2'. (c)Twitter Just hours after Marvel announced the first trailer of 'Avengers: Endgame', fans rushed to the website to check out more information on the movie, only be taken to Fox's 'Once Upon A Deadpool' website. The entire development is clearly a daredevil prank played by someone to mess around with the fans who were waiting for months in anticipation for the trailer of Endgame to come out. (c)Walt Disney Studios Needless to say, fans are still going helter-skelter trying to make the best of a bad situation by watching the newly released trailer a gazillion times just to figure out what is the most probable thing to happen in the movie. Currently, though it's unclear who is behind the URL redirect but shortly after the trailer came out, a Twitter account with the handle @AGuyintChair tweeted that he owned the domain and he was asking for a pair of tickets in exchange for giving up on the prank! Talk about a fair barter, eh? I own and But I don't want them. I want to trade them for tickets to the #AvengersEndgame premiere in LA. A guy can dream, can't he? — Guy Inchair (@AGuyInChair) 7 December 2018 According to the records, the domain name was registered on Aril 27, the same day 'Avengers: Infinity War' released in theatres. Seems like this man has really thought this through to mess with the promotion of the film and earn himself some fame instead. We're still sceptical about why this URL was created in the first place since the Avengers and Deadpool belong to two separate entities. One is part of the MCU while the other is from Fox's X: Men Universe. So, is there really a connection for the prankster to try and connect the dots on purpose here? Or is he just baiting for free tickets? Maybe the two studios are trying to enhance some sort of cross-promotion for both the releases and they really don't want to say it out loud. Who knows, right? (c)Walt Disney Studios We all know that Disney is in the process of acquiring 21st Century Fox, which obviously has the rights to Deadpool and other X-Men characters. To probably make the transition smoother, it looks like the promotion for Deadpool has started out with a bang and how. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds made a bunch of jokes on the same and said "Time to uncork that explosive sexual tension between Deadpool and Mickey Mouse." to a popular publication. (c)20th Century Fox Who is to know why this redirection came through. For now, we can just try and connect the dots and find different variables describing the so-called 'prank' better. All we know is 'Once Upon A Deadpool' releases on December 12, 2018, while 'Avengers: Endgame' releases April 26, 2019.

  12. You go to the gym and tell the trainer that you want to get in shape. Maybe even get lean or ripped. They will say that you need to go on a diet. This part is correct. But the misery they put you through is one of the worst things that can happen to anyone. These things are: 1. A boiled food diet. Your taste buds will die a slow death. All you get to eat are foods like boiled chicken, steamed fish, oats, etc. You justify it by saying you eat food for function and not for taste. You also find stupid fitness quotes like 'No pain, No gain' motivating and relatable to your situation. 2. A ketogenic diet. The new blue-eyed baby of schmucks who say deluded stuff like 'I train your trainer.' Essentially, carbs are the reason two world wars happened, cancer happened, and the reason humans cannot fly. Carbs are the reason for all things wrong with the world. You must avoid it. Basically, these schools of thought are plain idiotic. You do not need to swing to any extremes if you want to get lean or shredded. Here are five things you should do instead: 1. Count Your Calories © Thinkstock The laws of thermodynamics dictate a change in your body weight. You eat more calories than you expend, you gain weight. You eat fewer calories than you expend and you lose weight. It all comes down to this. Any dietary pattern that you follow, any macro ratio you eat, whether you eat high carbs or high fat, in the end, it doesn't even matter if it does not put you in a caloric deficit. 2. Eat More Protein © YouTube Protein or amino acids are the building blocks of your muscle tissue. If you want more muscle, you need higher rates of muscle protein synthesis. Muscle protein synthesis is the process through which your body synthesizes more muscle tissue. Target anywhere between 1.8 to 2.2 grams of protein per kilo of your body weight. 3. Eat Your Fruits And Vegetables Your mom used to tell you this as a kid. Eat your greens and fruits. You did not back then. You don't even now. Fruits and veggies will ensure you are eating enough fiber for the day. It will keep you full, help you have good gut health, and provide you with micronutrients like vitamins and minerals. There is no downside to it. 4. Embrace Flexible Dieting © Thinkstock Flexible dieting, simply put, is a mindset. A mindset that helps you see food as it is, nutritious and helps you towards your goals or non-nutritious and takes you further away from your goal. You stop seeing food as good or bad. You do not swing into diet days and cheat days which is more harmful. Read this piece. You eat highly nutritious food most of the time with a little less nutritious food sometimes that helps you stay on track. 5. Stop Believing That You Need A Lot Of Supplements If you go to buy a supplement for a particular goal today, the industry has developed so much stupid stuff that they can sell you one for anything. A majority of these supplements are often useless. Supplements that can be beneficial for everyone are whey protein, caffeine, and creatine monohydrate. That's it. No BCAAs, no fat burners, etc. Read this for more info on this. Start doing these things in 2019 and get in shape. Not waste another year spinning your wheels.

  13. This copy is not a comparison of our culture to the US or any other country. Maybe other cultures are better or maybe they are worse. This, however, is just a plain and simple explanation about our very own society and its mindset, and how they can sometimes get in the way of life. This is about how even in 2018, the society still pushes people to do academically well and tell them that everything else is a waste of time. This is about every child who could have been Mithali Raj or Rahul Dravid but is stuck in a 9-6 job because (s)he was asked not to miss studies for cricket practice. This is the tale of every child who wanted to be something other than the mainstreamed professional. We all grew up watching Batman & Ironman. We could never get enough of the superhero movies & comics. And we all had at least one superhero we all wanted to be. Oh, how we dreamt of swinging from one building to the other like Spiderman or becoming as strong as the Hulk. And how all of us just lusted for Superman's flying ability! While we all wanted to be them, I think it wasn't a practical thing to think of. Even if we had those superpowers, it would have been impractical of us to be superheroes. This is thanks to our protective & academics-loving parents and the not so liberal society. Let's see how the life of superheroes would have been had they were born in India. Batman – The CEO If Batman were born in India, his parents would have been alive, thanks to the stringent gun laws of our country. He would have been somewhat like the prodigal heir of Ambanis. His life would have been surrounded by the 3M: Media, Money, & MBA. Bruce became Batman because he left his comfort zone, lived a hard life at a remote mountain for years, and dedicated his life to become a better man. All this because his parents didn't force him to do MBA and take care of the family business. Indian parents barely let their child go for a night out, let alone let him go to some mountain and learn how to fight. I think Bruce would have been studying in IIM-A and later taking care of the family business. Spiderman – The Shy Kid Who Becomes Cool Eventually Peter Parker was never shown as a nerdy bookworm. He was just another boy in the class whom people barely noticed. I think Peter would have been a dropper who would have been preparing for IIT-JEE. After getting bitten by a spider and getting his superpowers, he would probably have been flaunting his strength and newly built muscles to impress girls there. The shy Peter would have loved his new popularity but couldn't have put it to better use thanks to the pressure of clearing IIT-JEE. After all, nights are for studies, not for swinging from one building to other and stop crime. Indian priorities! Wonder Woman – Without Any Wonder Princess Diana would have been 'papa's angel' in her early teens. The curious and always eager to break the barriers, Diana would have been stopped by our society to do so. © Marvel Let's face it, in an era of women empowerment, we're still dealing with issues like dowry. So Diana's parents would have tried to tame her behaviour for her “future's” sake. © Marvel Our warrior would have been asked to 'dress appropriately,' mind her own business, and let the men take care of the World War situation. The society would have crushed the wonder part and Diana would have been just another woman. Wolverine – The Avatar of Some God Wolverine would have been the notorious kid who stands out of the class more than sitting inside. After discovering his sharp blades, he would probably have gotten thrown out of school and his parents would have taken him to AIIMS to get it treated. His super strength & healing ability would have been termed 'unnatural.' He either would have been admitted to some hospital or would have considered a Demi-God by our society. The latter option would certainly have made him rich but again, his overprotective parents would have home-schooled him instead of letting him go and fight the crime. Superman – The Page 3 Journalist I don't know where to start. Clark Kent would never have gotten a chance to be the superhero as his editor must have asked him to follow Taimur and get a story on how Taimur looked adorable while eating candy. How on Earth could he find the time to do anything else? © DC Comics Even if somehow he got the time to be Superman, his parents would have asked him to stop wasting time by saving the world and concentrate on his career. After all, 28 is the age to settle down, get married, and start a family. The saving the world concept is not in parent's bucket list. © DC Comics Although I'm sure many girls would have loved to marry him. Not because of his sharp looks, or God-like physique, but for the fact that he does stories on Taimur. Poor Superman would have been just a man had he was born in India. Ironman – The Mechanical Engineer This arrogant prick would have been the guy every relative hates. But his intelligence and IIT tag would have forced the relatives to be nice to him as they would want him to guide their children on how to crack IIT entrance. Tony would have been the overconfident kid in the class who was hated by all, especially his teachers. Just like Sheldon Cooper, in his childhood. His parents would never have allowed him to design an iron suit which would make him fly and do other cool stuff. Instead, he would have graduated, taken a job in the mechanical engineering field, would have been designing amazing cars. His parents would have been proud of him while the country would have lost the hero it badly needs. Our Society would have cut off the capes of these superheroes as well, as it does with most of us. They would have become just another being by following the rules of the society, when they could have been much more! Be your own superhero, people will complain no matter what you do.
  14. Hard work pays off. If not today, then tomorrow and Akshay Kumar is the living example of it. It's hard to believe but the man who won a national award for his film 'Rustom', was once termed as a 'furniture actor.' The arduous journey from being an action hero to an actor wasn't easy for him. Before Akshay Kumar, he was known as Rajiv Bhatia, who wasn't very good at academics and was always more inclined towards sports. His father, Mr. Hari Om Bhatia, was well aware of this fact and hence, sent him to Bangkok to study martial arts. There, along with learning martial arts, our Khiladi worked as a waiter & a chef, not knowing that one day he'll be hosting Master Chef of India. © Warner Bros After he learned Muay Thai there, a form of arts, he came back to India and started teaching martial arts in Mumbai. One of his students suggested him to try modelling. But he didn't have a portfolio and didn't have any money to make one. So he worked as an assistant to a famous photographer, Jayesh Seth, for around a year and a half for free to get his first portfolio shot. Then came modelling gigs and he became quite fond of it as he made more money as a model in the first couple of days than he did in an entire month as a martial arts teacher. On one such occasion, he missed his flight to Bangalore for an ad shoot. Devastated by this, he went to a film studio along with his portfolio to look for work. Luck played its part and he got signed as a lead role for the film 'Deedar.' Maybe it's true when they say, whatever happens, happens for good. But this wasn't his first film. His first film was Aaj (1987) which was directed by Mahesh Bhatt. He had a 4-5 second role of a karate instructor in it and Kumar Gaurav was his co-actor. The interesting part is that the name of Kumar Gaurav's character was Akshay in it. One morning, Rajiv Bhatia decided to change his name for no reason whatsoever and then born was our beloved Akshay Kumar. © Tridev Arts Akshay's first release was 'Saugandh' which was released in 1991. 'Deedar', which he signed before 'Saugandh', was released in 1992. His first couple of films didn't do great, but then came 'Khiladi', which did quite all right at the box office. His first hit, however, was 'Mohra', which came in 1994. Akshay has given many flops in his lifetime, including 14 back to back flop once, but he still always managed to bag movies because he was a producer's man. Akshay was punctual on sets, didn't throw any tantrums and never misused the producer's money. Apart from his action skills, this was one of the major reasons he was loved by his directors and producers. There came a time in Akshay's life where he was called a furniture actor as the man himself realised that all he is doing is action, and nothing much. In one of the interviews he said, "Whenever someone used to make an action film, they would say 'take this guy called Akshay'. When it came to acting, nobody used to take me." That's when he started looking for films which could bring out the actor inside of him. And then no one could stop him! He proved his mettle in comedy, drama, romance and almost every other genre. In 2000, he did 'Hera Pheri' & 'Dhadkan', which were a comedy and a romance film respectively. Both the films performed well at the box office and everyone applauded Akshay's acting skills. Hera Pheri is still considered as one of the best comedy films of Bollywood. Since then, Akshay has worked in more than a hundred films and has even done negative roles. For 'Ajnabee', he has won Filmfare in the category of Best Villain. © YouTube Akshay's personal life has also been quite happening until he met the love of his life. He had affairs with the likes of Shilpa Shetty and Raveena Tandon. But our hero finally fell in love with Twinkle Khanna, which actually started as a fling. On 'Koffee With Karan', Twinkle revealed, “I had come out of a long-term relationship and for the first time in my life I wanted to just have a fling. And there he was, sitting 6 feet of chocolate ice-cream. So I decided I am going to have a fling with him and it's going to last 15 days. That was my plan.” But the relationship grew and Akshay proposed to Twinkle for marriage. She didn't say yes right away and put a condition. She told him that if her film 'Mela' wouldn't perform well, then only she would marry him. She was actually quite sure that it would do well and marriage was the last thing on her mind. © Star World Luckily for Akshay, 'Mela' turned out to be a disaster. But Twinkle didn't say yes that easily even then. Instead of asking for his Kundali, she asked Akshay what diseases ran in his family, at what age did his uncles go bald, what did his aunt die from, and everything related to his genetics. Basically, she wanted to confirm their children would be perfectly healthy and good looking. She even made a list of pros and cons of marrying Akshay. (Tell your boyfriend this when he complains that you over think.) © YouTube Even Twinkle's mother, Dimple Kapadia, was sceptical about the marriage. She asked the duo to be in a live-in relationship first as she had heard that Akshay might be gay. What a cool mom, eh? But in the end, everything turned out well and Akshay tied the knot with Twinkle in 2001. Seems like some flings do turn into something great! Akshay is one of the most famous Bollywood actors, arguably THE most famous since he's the first Indian male actor to have 20 million followers on Instagram. This fan following came from all the hard work he has done to make himself stand where he is. © Twitter/Akshay Kumar He's known to wake up at 4 in the morning and go back to bed at 9. His schedule and punctuality are the reasons that he releases around three films in a year. Even at 50, he's fitter than most of us. He is also known for playing pranks with his co-actors on sets. Akshay is also a philanthropist since he actively promotes women empowerment, women's safety, the importance of the army, and also helps farmers whenever needed. © Excel Entertainment Most of his films are quite inspiring which gives a strong message to society. His recent film was on Independent India's first gold medal in hockey. Though being a teetotaller himself, he played the role of an alcoholic in this film and if you ask me, he nailed the role, like always! His upcoming film is '2.0' in which he'll be playing an antagonist and will be seen in an all-new avatar. © Lyca Productions We hope he keeps making inspiring films and keeps on entertaining us.
  15. What do you do when you realise your four-years worth of engineering degree isn't quite living up to your expectations, and the sound of your career path ascending towards global partnerships isn't something you are looking forward to anymore? Well, we are not sure about what anyone else would do in such a situation, but here is what Shantanu did - he bid adieu to his engineering degree from NIT Nagpur and quit his fancy job at McKinsey, to give men the best shaves of their lives. No, really. We are not kidding. © MensXP Shantanu Deshpande, a computer science engineer by degree and working with a globally recognised management consulting company McKinsey, ditched the “good life” in the blink of an eye, to give the smoothest shaving experience to the urban male population in India. It was a conversation with his US-based childhood friend Manu that really triggered the idea of setting up one of India's best selling men's grooming brand, Bombay Shaving Company, in October 2015. The conversation that revolved around the boom in men's grooming startups in the United States, and how these new and quirky newbies were taking on FMCG giants like Gillette, sent Shantanu into a tizzy, with the need to explore similar opportunities closer to home. After much research and deliberation, as well as detailed discussions with industry veterans, Shantanu realised that it was the right move to shake up the underserved and monopolised market - and there lay his chance! © MensXP Shantanu along with his Raunak Munot, Deepu Panicker and Rohit Jaiswal took the big plunge and co-founded the company playing on each one of their strengths, that seemed to completely fit with the company's core needs. What started out as 500 annual shipments in 2016, has scaled up to 10,000 shipments a month today. What's even better news for Shantanu is that the official website sees 300,000 average visitors every month! Today, Bombay Shaving Company functions on both online and offline routes of business, and their products are spread across four categories, namely shaving, bath, beard and skin. With a team of 60 young professionals, Bombay Shaving Company is trying to create a product range that distinctly stands out for its credible product quality. © MensXP Along with product innovations that the brand is trying to bring to their individual products, they are also trying to incorporate consumer feedbacks in their newest productions. Be it their single blade neo-retro razor or the beard care starter kit, each of their creation reflects the amount of research and passionate involvement that the final product has gone through. It is Shantanu's vision and desire to see his team grow to its fullest potential, all with risks, mistakes and failures, that makes this brand so different from others. With these guys being so invested in grooming the urban men to perfection, the future for Bombay Shaving Company only seems more bright. © MensXP Learn about the many challenges and successes that Shantanu's decision reaped in the longer run, and how Bombay Shaving Company went on to fulfill Shantanu's larger dream of seeing well-groomed men walking the face of this earth, in this exclusive conversation with MensXP.
