5 Types Of Treatments That Men Should Definitely Try Out To Enhance Their Grooming Game

Men are becoming more and more aware of the concept of grooming and are understanding the importance of personal care as well, which means a simple haircut or a basic shave is not enough anymore.  Even though the salons are shut at the moment due to the pandemic, there are several grooming treatments that men can try at home or in salons, when they open again. Here are some amazing grooming treatments that every man should try. Trust us, you wouldn't want to give up on these: 1. Spa Facials © iStock Men have mostly kept things pretty simple, especially when it comes to skincare. Skin being the biggest organ, it needs to be taken care of. 
The best way to do so is to go for professional spas, at least once a month. Spa facials are a treat to the skin and are super relaxing. The treatment also relaxes the pores and helps you get rid of blackheads, dry skin and ingrown hair. The products used are based on one's skin type. If you are keen on doing that, there are several homemade face masks that you can try out. 2. Manicure And Pedicure © iStock Manicures and pedicures are popular but some men are still hesitant to try out this grooming treatment. The treatment is ranked as the topmost one in the men's grooming arena. 
It really helps your nails buff away the dry skin. Getting this treatment is not just meant for women but for men as well, as they can also seek professional help and go the extra mile to take care of their skin.  It even helps unwind from all the stress and strains of everyday life. 3. Teeth Whitening & Cleaning © iStock It is important to remove the stubborn, yellow stains from your teeth from time to time. Fortunately, you can do this from the comfort of your home as well. 
There are also several inexpensive treatments related to whitening and cleaning, which your dentist can help you with. Besides home remedies, there are whitening pens, strips etc that are available. 4. Hair Treatments © iStock Getting yourself a head massage is something you shouldn't miss out on. But, another treatment that works well, especially for men who are facing issues like hair thinning etc is collagen treatment. 
It's a hair treatment that gives the hair enough protein. Some hair loss treatments are worth a shot. Apart from that, it's also important to go for scalp treatments. Scalp detox is as vital as other treatments. It helps get rid of issues like itchy scalp and also keeps it nourished and clean. 5. Eyebrows © iStock When your eyebrows are not groomed well, the look isn't very pleasing, it rather makes you look unkempt and untidy. 
To avoid looking like that, go for eyebrow shaping from time to time. It is vital that you clean your eyebrows either by using tweezers or seeking professional help. Also, don't forget to trim your unibrow.

First Reviews For Salman's 'Radhe' Are In & We Can't Decide If It's ‘Paisa-Vasool’ Or ‘Torture'

Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai has become the first Indian film to simultaneously release on multiple platforms. Radhe has hit theatres today and it will also see the light of the day on ZEE5’s pay-per-view platform, ZEEPlex.  View this post on Instagram“It’s imperative that we all come together and think of out-of-the-box solutions for cinema as an industry during the current pandemic situation. We will support the theatre owners by releasing the film in as many theatres as we can, keeping in line with the rules and protocols laid down by the government. But, considering the guidelines and safety measures, we also need to devise ways to ensure that the film reaches all of our audience. We don't want to deny the audience the choice of entertainment in the comfort of their homes during these times," Salman Khan's spokesperson said in an earlier statement.   With the film releasing today, many people thronged to watch the movie on Zee5 and the website crashed completely because of so many people trying to access it. View this post on Instagram However, people who got the chance to watch the movie have been sharing their opinions about it on social media. While some are calling it mass entertainment, some are finding it a complete waste of time.  Here are the reactions: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter In an earlier interview with Firstpost, when Salman was asked what the viewers can expect from the movie, he had said, “You can definitely expect something different from Tiger, Dabangg, Bodyguard and Wanted. We will not repeat ourselves. It is new and I need you to see the film and tell me what is new. I am the same old Salman — which you have been seeing since Maine Pyar Kiya. The people who have watched Maine Pyar Kiya loved me, and they kept on loving me. From that one fan became a family and then another unit. I’m lucky and grateful that fans have been very loyal. So, from grandparents to parents to grandchildren, I have the following.”
Talking about the plot, Salman added, “The plot is that my character Radhe makes a commitment to this child whose friend dies, and then Radhe goes all out to clean the city. We have three villains — Sang Hae (from Bhutan), Gautam Gulati, and Randeep Hooda. These actors have made Radhe look much stronger and bigger. With all that, we have Jacqueline; there is comedy, romance, and the first time I have ever kissed a duct tape in a movie. That duct tape was on Disha’s lips. When people ask me: ‘You have never kissed on-screen?’ So yes, this time I kissed on screen but not on the heroine’s lips, it was duct tape that I kissed. Like in Maine Pyar Kiya, I kissed Bhagyashree's lipstick mark from the other side of the window.” Here’s the trailer:   Have you watched the film already?

SRK Is Winning Hearts With His Reason For Not Letting Aryan Take Off His Shirt At Home

Shah Rukh Khan has always had a strong stance over most things. In a throwback interview, he had once unveiled that his son Aryan Khan is not allowed to be shirtless at home.  He talked about how unfair it is to the women in his family. In the interview, SRK spoke about the importance of equality in the family and said how his sons do not have any extra privileges. © Instagram/Iamsrk In an interview with Femina back in 2017, Shah Rukh also mentioned that he believes that a man in the house doesn't have the right to be shirtless all the time, in front of their mother or sister or other friends. 
He also added that he tells Aryan to keep his T-shirt on all the time. © Instagram/Iamsrk He further added "If you’d feel uncomfortable seeing your mother, daughter, sister, women friends without their clothes on, why would you expect them to accept you shirtless? It’s got nothing to do with having breasts or not—don’t do something a girl can’t do."
Shah Rukh has also given some witty responses on similar topics, particularly about gender equality.  In one of Twitter's #AskSRK session, when a fan asked him how to impress a girl and used the word 'Patana' for it. The actor responded by saying, "Start with not using the word 'Patana' for a girl. Try with more respect gentleness and respect." © Instagram/Iamsrk Another fan called SRK 'egoistic', to which he had a befitting reply and said "Nahi yaar main itna Great hoon mujh mein bilkul ego nahi hai!! Ha ha."
© Instagram/Iamsrk © Red Chillies Entertainment On the work front, Shah Rukh was last seen in Zero. 
He has an interesting project coming up, Pathan, which is an action-drama. The movie is directed by Siddharth Anand and also stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in it.

Gal Gadot's Tweet On Israel-Palestine Conflict Causes Major Stir, Forces Her To Disable Comments

Israel and Palestine have been at loggerheads for decades. Amid the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Palestine, Israeli actress Gal Gadot has shared a tweet praying for peace. Gadot said it breaks her heart to see her "country at war." The Wonder Woman star added that both Israel and its "neighbour" deserve to live as "free and safe" nations. She wrote, “My heart breaks. My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people. This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. I pray for the victims and their families, I pray for this unimaginable hostility to end, I pray for our leaders to find the solution so we could live side by side in peace. I pray for better days.” © Twitter The actress who shot to fame for her performance as Wonder Woman in the DC Comics franchise had earlier faced backlash on December 25, 2020, during the release of Wonder Woman 1984.
There was a certain sequence in Wonder Woman 1984 where the superhero had to save young children from Egypt from a war-like situation. Many supporters of Palestine did not support the sequence since the Israeli actress was portrayed as a hero in a middle eastern country. What do you think? Is it fair to target her? Let us know in the comments section below.

I was not in a state of mind, which is why whatever happened, happened. But thank god, my family tested negative. I know I did not take precautions while coming back and it resulted in me testing positive." She also said that she is fine now but still has a cough and heaviness in the chest.  Hina also thanked all her fans who supported her during tough times. She said "Thank you for being there for me.

Hookups In The Time Of Lockdown: 8 Things Men Can Do To Make Virtual Sex More Fulfilling

Having a good sex life is an underlying part of our well-being and overall quality of life. And while it is in mentally exhausting times like these that having an active sex life could help keep our wellness in check to some degree, sadly we are all cooped-up inside our homes, bereft of the comforting intimacy. Sorry singletons! So what do we do?  Do we uninstall the plethora of apps that facilitate fleeting sexual encounters? Or do we switch to the next best thing — virtual hookups?  However, while many of us maybe self-proclaimed flirt dudes who know how to sext their way up to exchanging nudes, the best of us chicken out when it comes to actually having phone sex.  But fret not, these simple tips will help you shed your inhibitions, prep better and indulge in a more fulfilling virtual sex. Start With SextingGood sex, whether in-person or virtual, starts with excitement and anticipation and nothing builds anticipation better than exchange of those impressive one-liners laced with smutty emojis with your potential date on these dating apps. Get into the mood by asking standard questions like ‘Hey sup, are you in bed?’, ‘Need company?’, ‘How I wish to be by your side’! etc.  Once the sexting gets real and reciprocal, progress to more direct confessions like…’I am so aroused,’ ‘I am starting to get a hard on’, ‘Do you mind getting on a video call?’ If she/he says yes, take things forward from there. (always remember explicit consent is must) And don’t forget to plug in those ear pods, because you sure wanna have your hands be busy doing better things than adjusting that phone as per the length of your earphones. __ECOMPRODUCT__1484__ Feel Fresh Treat your virtual dalliance as your in-person sexual encounter and prep for it accordingly.  Make an effort. Take a shower beforehand to feel fresh and show up with wet messy hair to turn your date on. Trim your pubic hair or your chest hair if that’s what it takes to make you rise up to the occasion. __ECOMPRODUCT__501__ Use A Spray The point of phone sex is to enjoy yourselves and not to focus on pleasing or satisfying the other person. How much fun you have is, literally, in your hands. So, maximize your virtual hookup experience by maximizing your erection. Opt for a sensitivity numbing spray to prolong your orgasm. It will boost your overall experience, and for all you know might excite the other person to experiment too. __ECOMPRODUCT__1344__ Pop A PillIf you feel nervous about the whole situation of getting on a video call, try popping a stamina boosting or nerve relaxing pill. Opt for something natural made with herbs. These pills are designed to help increase your blood flow, relax your nerves and work as an aphrodisiac. More importantly, it can give you back the confidence you need to shed your inhibitions and indulge in a fulfilling virtual sex experience. __ECOMPRODUCT__1513__ Try Aromatherapy If you are second guessing on the idea of popping a pill, try aromatherapy. Put a few drops of lavender oil in your aroma diffuser and indulge in a fragrant atmosphere. Lavender helps relax your mind and can help you alleviate performance anxiety.  You can also go for a lavender oil massage, take a drop in your palm and gently massage it on your body while self-stimulating your turn on spots. __ECOMPRODUCT__1514__ Wear A Slinky UnderwearWhat a foreplay is in a real sexual encounter, shedding your clothes off layer by layer is in a virtual hookup. There is an arousing sense of palpable mystique in removing your clothes one by one and watching someone do that for you. So, don’t show up wearing nothing on a phone sex date, create mystery around your body, wear comfortable easy to remove clothes and more importantly the right underwear. Opt for a well-fitted underwear that makes your crotch look more desirable, and creates titillating friction, just in case you wanna tease your date by stroking your penis without removing the underpants. __ECOMPRODUCT__1515__ Ensure Proper Lighting Set the mood of your date hour by putting on the bedside lamps, and light a few candles for effect. Warm white lights not only create an inviting atmosphere but also help you conceal your scars if that’s what is keeping you from getting naked. Or grab a concealer or a BB cream and dab it a little on your scars to feel more confident about Facetiming.  __ECOMPRODUCT__286__ Most Importantly, Keep It RealAlso, a phone sex date may require you to have a way with words.  Soften the pitch, don’t hesitate to let out your moans, discuss your fantasies, and laugh if you feel like.  But remember, don’t let the moment get killed while trying to sound too clever, just keep it real. Nothing is more attractive than letting your date know that you are genuinely aroused.  Final ThoughtsWhether you resort to phone sex to kick your dry spell away or just make things saucy with your long-distance partner, phone sex can be more exciting and satisfying than you actually think. But, it’s important to build a degree of trust before going all in for it with a complete stranger. It would be nice to set boundaries beforehand as to whether screenshotting or screen-recording content is allowed or not, things that you are or aren’t comfortable with. And remember that if at any time you begin to feel uncomfortable, it’s okay to stop, without feeling guilty, because like we said a virtual hookup is more about pleasing yourself first than anyone else. So, now release what has been holding you back and go for it with some prudence, trust and a lot of excitement. Explore More

Masterchef Australia Judges Bowled Over By Indian Chef's Chhole, Kadhai Paneer & Indians Are Proud

If you’re a foodie, you would know that no cuisine blends multiple spices as nicely as Indian food. Some people want to present Indian food globally as Indian cuisine has a blend of many flavours that can hardly go wrong. And Depinder Chhibber from MasterChef Australia has been doing just that with her Indian recipes.  View this post on Instagram In its latest season, the contestant made a wholesome meal that included chickpea curry, cauliflower parantha, her grandmother's version of pickle, kadhai paneer, stir-fried rice, and fried okra chips. She was nervous as she sampled her food in front of them but the judges were super impressed by her culinary skills. She also told that she wants to take the Indian food on a global platform and this is what every household in her homeland cooks back at their homes. She said she does wish to own an Indian restaurant in the future. Here’s the video: View this post on Instagram After the video started to go viral, people appreciated her for sticking to her roots and making India proud. © Masterchef Australia Instagram © Masterchef Australia Instagram © Masterchef Australia Instagram In an interview with an Australian news portal, she told what inspired her to participate in the show. She said, “Since we moved to Australia I hardly watched local TV except for the news. I always watched food shows even as a kid in India, with Chef Sanjeev Kapoor being my favourite. When we moved to Australia I grew up watching MasterChef. I was obsessed with the show as a viewer and knew all the dishes.”
View this post on Instagram She went on to add, “For me, MasterChef is the benchmark of cooking in Australia. If I had to ever enter a contest it had to be MasterChef. But to be honest, I went on MasterChef because probably I’m the biggest fan out there! I look up to the contestants and if I ever ran into them, I would get very excited and get them to sign my cookbook. For me, anyone who went on MasterChef was equivalent to a Bollywood celebrity.” We too are proud of you, Depinder Chhibber!

Anupam Kher Criticises Government's Handling Of The COVID-19 Crisis & People Cannot Digest It

Anupam Kher has always been vocal about his endorsement of the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and he has always sung praises of the Prime Minister. In a surprising and almost indigestible move, Anupam Kher has now criticised the centre for failing to address the issues the country has been facing due to COVID-19. People have been complaining about the situation for a while now, but coming from Anupam Kher is a bolt from the blue. Speaking to NDTV, Kher said, “It is important to hold the government responsible for what has happened. Somewhere they have slipped. And it is time for them to sort of understanding that there is much more to life than just image building maybe.” He went on to add, “We should as people... Get angry.” Just a couple of days back, bodies were seen floating in the Ganga in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia and Ghazipur districts. More than 70 bodies have been recovered from the river in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Local reports claim more than 100 bodies have been dumped into the river. The discovery of bodies has triggered panic over the spread of Covid-19 through Ganga river water. When asked about this harsh reality, the veteran actor said, “I think the criticism is valid in lots of cases and I think it is important for the government to sort of rise to the occasion and do things that they are chosen by people of this country for.” He also added, “I think only an inhuman person will not get affected by the bodies floating. But for another political party to use it for their gain is also not right.” This is utterly shocking and unusual as Kher has always supported the BJP government. People have started to react to the statement given by Anupam Kher and are rubbing their eyes in disbelief as they cannot digest it. There are memes that are also floating on social media. Here are the reactions: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter

Randeep Hooda Feels 'A Little Guilty' As He Promotes 'Radhe' But Says ‘It’s A Part Of One’s Job’

Randeep Hooda and Salman Khan’s Radhe will be releasing tomorrow in a unique hybrid model. The film will premiere in theatres all over the world and will also stream on ZEE5’s pay-per-view platform Zee Plex. This is the first time that’s actually being tested and Randeep in an interview with Indian Express said that Salman’s movie is the best bid when it comes to testing the new approach of releasing movies. View this post on Instagram “It will be a good experiment for the industry to have this hybrid kind of platform release where people who are unable to get to theatres can watch it. It is also a cheaper option since instead of buying one ticket per person, the entire family can watch it. What better film to test the whole system with than a Salman Khan film. I’m hoping it will do well,” he said.  This is Randeep’s third collaboration with Salman. The two have previously worked together in Kick and Sultan. “I chased him in Kick, I coached him in Sultan and I am testing him in Radhe,” shared Randeep.  The film is releasing in COVID times and Randeep added that he does feel a little guilty as he has been promoting the movie but he added that this is also paying money to employees who are attached to the project.  View this post on Instagram Randeep added that he hopes Radhe “has the same fate” as Extraction as the Chris Hemsworth film worked wonders for Netflix.  He said, “I hope this film has the same fate, a lot more people watch it and can take their minds off from the morose situation that’s going on. Because coming at this point, with the promotions, I also feel a little guilty that all those things are happening but one keeps doing other things to help out. This is also a part of one’s job, it also employs 500 people who have come together and made this film which has been in the box for a long time and I’m glad it’s coming out.”  Are you planning to watch the movie?

7 Photos Ft. Sunny Hinduja AKA Sandeep Bhaiya From ‘Aspirants’ Which Show He Has Great Style

If you follow the Indian OTT scene very closely and have watched TVF’s Aspirants, you will know just how vital Sandeep is, as a character. 
© Instagram/hindujasunny For UPSC aspirants all across the country, he is perhaps one of the most relatable characters from the series. After all, the performance that Sunny Hinduja put in, was formidable, to say the least.
© Instagram/hindujasunny Sunny Hinduja has been a part of a number of movies and web series that have had some great impact. These include the likes of, Chacha Vidhayak Hain Humare, The Family Man, Mardaani 2, etc. 
© Instagram/hindujasunny Clearly, the man is a phenomenal performer. To top it all off, the man has a great sense of style and an immaculate understanding of fashion. Browse through his Instagram, and you’ll see him in some tastefully put together outfits.
© Instagram/hindujasunny Here are just a few examples.
1. Going Hip © Instagram/hindujasunny Street outfits are usually cool. But are they as cool as the one that Sunny has here? Rarely. We love the darker shades that he has gone for, and how he contrasts his sneakers.
2. Suits With Sneakers? Heck, Yeah! © Instagram/hindujasunny Pairing sneakers with a well-fitted suit may seem unusual, especially if experimenting is not your cup of tea. However, Sunny proves it, that it is a very classy style move, that pays off well.
3. Laidback And Casual © Instagram/hindujasunny Now this is how you dress down casually at your home, in a very elegant and sophisticated manner. Also, note how simple but effective the colour blocking is in this outfit.
4. Funky Blazers © Instagram/hindujasunny A well structured and well-made blazer adds a ton of character to any outfit that you pick. And like Sunny’s, if your blazer also has a quirky print or design to it, the character goes up another notch.
5. Kurtas With A Contemporary Twist © Instagram/hindujasunny We love when people get creative with their ethnic outfits, without taking too much away from it. Like this Kurta that Sunny is wearing here. The zipped placket and the ribbed collars look neat. Also, notice he’s wearing pink. Still think that guys can’t pull pink off?
6. Accessorising The Correct Way © Instagram/hindujasunny Go through his photographs on Instagram and one thing becomes quite clear. Sunny knows how to accessorise with effect. This here is a classic example. Have an upper that is a very basic colour, like white? Accessorise to the T, but don’t go overboard.
7. Floral Prints Done Right © Instagram/hindujasunny Men look awesome in prints. Especially when they are wearing something of this sorts. Notice how tightly spaced the prints are, and how, they have used muted colours on white fabric. And again, notice how Sunny adds a character to the outfit, using his watch.

5 Health Benefits Of Chia Seeds And Why It Should Be A Part Of Your Diet

Chia seeds are relatively new in the healthy foods category, but have quickly risen to the top of the good books of all fitness and health enthusiasts. Chia seeds are the edible seeds of the chia plant (Salvia Hispanica), a flowering plant in the mint family. They are oval and gray with black and white spots. Here's how they can improve your health and why they should be a part of your diet. 1. Nutritionally dense © Pexels When it comes to the profile of nutrients in a food item, chia seeds excel on this front. They are a great source of essential micronutrients, like calcium, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus, which makes them good for bones. Chia seeds also pack antioxidants, protein, and fiber which helps improve heart health and stabilize the blood sugar levels.
2. Good source of fiber and protein © Pexels Chia seeds are impressively high in fiber which is excellent for gut health and improving bowel movements. Since two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 11 grams of fiber which is equal to half the daily requirement for women and about a third for men.
For people that don't eat meat, finding foods with a complete protein profile can be a drag. Chia seeds might help them a little out there, as there are 4 grams of protein per 2 tablespoon of chia seeds. Pair that with peanut butter on oats and you've got a complete meal. Also, chia seeds are a complete source of protein, which maps all the 9 essential amino acids in them, which are essential for the human body. 3. Great source of omega 3 © iStock Chia seeds offer a good amount of omega 3 fatty acids as well. Omega 3 has a wide range of benefits, from fighting depression to improving sleep to reducing inflammation and reducing the risk of heart diseases. 
The twist here is, chia seed is a good source of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), which is a type of omega 3 fatty acids found in nature that is not superior to the other type of omega 3 fatty acids like EPA or DHA found in fish, meat, dairy, and eggs.  Still, chia seeds will give you a boost as they are considered the best plant-based source of ALA. Over half of chia seed's fat is omega-3s. __ECOMPRODUCT__936__ 4. Easy way to improve the nutritional value of the meal. © iStock Chia seeds are perhaps the most easiest way to improve the overall taste and the nutritional value of the meal as you just have to sprinkle a few spoons of chia seeds over any of your favorite meal like oats porridge, smoothies, top it on greek yogurt, almond butter toast, pudding or even add to your coconut water. Since the chia seeds are small, they blend easily and nutritional value of the meal.
5. Good source of antioxidants © iStock A good amount of antioxidants is really crucial for good health as they slow down signs of aging, resulting in younger-looking skin, healthier hair, and can even reduce the risk of cancer. 
Antioxidants fight free radicals, which cause damage to cells, proteins, and DNA. As a side note, foods high in free radicals are those deficient in antioxidants like processed foods or foods full of sugar. So, try your best to stay away from those and strike the correct balance. The BottomlineChia seeds can be called the modern superfood, which packs a great deal of nutrients. As mentioned, you can have them with your smoothies, porridge, or yogurt as well to enhance the taste and the overall nourishment of the meal.

Apple Could Be Working On A Handheld Gaming Device Just Like The Nintendo Switch

Apple is quite secretive when it comes to new products, however rumours tend to spill over from some of the most reliable sources. Now, the latest word on the street is that Apple could be working on its own handheld gaming console, similar to the Nintendo Switch. Apple has been experimenting in the world of gaming with its Apple Arcade service and a new Apple TV that can play console-level games. However, it seems logical that Apple would be working on its own Nintendo Switch-like console.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The new rumour comes from a Korean forum post that was later shared on Twitter by user “FronTron.”
Apple, preparing a portable hybrid console, like the Switch

A new AP is being prepared with a new model name, not the Apple A series or M series. It features enhanced GPU performance and ray tracing support. Future games are in negotiation with Ubisoft.https://t.co/K88iSMC4bd — Tron ❂ (@FrontTron) May 7, 2021 Since this is just a rumour at the moment, we do advise taking this piece of information with a pinch of salt. The new hardware could include Apple-designed SoCs such as the A14 Bionic or even the M1 Chip. The handheld device could be technically more powerful than the Nintendo Switch if this rumour indeed comes to fruition.  © Razer The rumour also suggests Apple might be in negotiations with Ubisoft to create games for its new handheld console. Ubisoft is responsible for some of the most popular franchises such as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and Rayman. 
The Nintendo Switch design has proven to be a great formula for handheld gaming devices which also resulted in companies developing accessories like the Razer Kishi and the Backbone controller. It doesn’t really make sense for Apple to make a handheld console since the iPhone and iPad can already handle console-level games. Having said that, a dedicated Apple Arcade machine could actually be in the works as the company has been interested in gaming for a while now.

Rakhi Sawant Wants Sonu Sood To Become The Next PM But His Humble Answer Will Win Your Heart

Rakhi Sawant has become one of the biggest source of entertainment for the masses amid the pandemic. The star keeps us hooked to her everyday banter and leaves no stone unturned in cheering the audience. In one of the latest instances, Vir Das replied to a tweet that said Vir should be the next PM. The comedian rather endorsed Sonu Sood, to take the place of the Prime Minister and not him. © Insatgram/Rakhi Sawant © Insatgram/Sonu Sood Sonu Sood needs no introduction as his work speaks volumes of his benevolent nature. Amid the pandemic, Sonu has been working relentlessly ensuring the common people get all the help they need, at such crucial times. He has been appreciated several times for his philanthropic work. From helping stranded migrants to providing hospital aid to people, Sood was hailed as a Messiah for his hard work.
View this post on Instagram This has now led to Rakhi Swant endorsing him as the next PM of India. Not just that, Rakhi also suggested that even Salman Khan would prove to be a good fit as the PM for the country. In a video, she can be heard calling both the actors 'asli heroes'. She said “Main to kehti hoon Salman Khan aur Sonu Sood ko is desh ka Pradhan Mantri bana diya jaye, kyunki asli hero to woh hi hai. Sonu Sood sabse zyada kitna love karte hain apni country se apne logon se.” She also mentioned that even Akshay Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan are also providing help to the ones in need. View this post on Instagram Sonu Sood has now replied to the comment and said that he isn't willing to be the PM of the country. He was recently seen distributing refreshing drinks outside his building to the photographers. When asked what he thinks about Rakhi's take, he said "Hum aam insaan ache hai bhai, aam insaan better hai." He further added that the brothers are already fighting elections already. Hence, he doesn't wish to be a part of it as that's not what he intends to do. © Viral Bhayani Even Pooja Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra Jonas appreciated Sonu's extraordinary efforts. In fact, Priyanka mentioned that he is a visionary philanthropist.
Speaking of Salman, even he has been assiduous at such times. From giving monetary assistance to the workers in the film industry to offering rations, the Bhai of Bollywood is reaching out to the ones in need. The actor had also helped Rakhi cover the expenses for her mother's cancer treatment. Meanwhile, several other stars including Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan, Twinkle Khanna, etc are making headlines for providing monetary aid to several Covid-relief funds.

China Defends Uncontrollable Rocket Debris And They Are Still Ignorant To What They Did Wrong

The Chinese Government defended its handling of the uncontrollable rocket booster that landed very close to the Maldives archipelago. The rocket boost burned up over the Indian Ocean, however Beijing says that it is being held to a different standard than the US and other space programs. Earlier this week, NASA administrator and experts accused Beijing of acting recklessly for allowing its rocket to fall to earth uncontrolled.  © CCTV “China has been closely tracking its trajectory and issued statements on the re-entry situation in advance,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said. “There has been no report of harm on the ground. China also shares the results of re-entry predictions through international cooperation mechanisms.”
Hua also complained that Beijing was being treated unfairly. She pointed to a SpaceX launch earlier this year where its debris fell in Washington and on the Oregon coast. “American media used romantic rhetoric like ‘shooting stars lighting up the night sky,’” she said. “But when it comes to the Chinese side, it’s a completely different approach. We are willing to work with other countries including the United States to strengthen cooperation in the use of outer space, but we also oppose double standards on this issue," Hua said. It seems like Chinese officials are still ignorant of the fact that an uncontrollable rocket falling to Earth was highly irresponsible of them in the first place. The rocket was sighted by people in Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Oman where many of them posted recordings of the debris reentering earth.  © Reuters However, with most launches, rocket boosters are usually discarded soon after liftoff and don’t go into orbit which was not the case for China’s Long March 5B rocket. Even if rocket boosters do go into orbit, space engineers can control its speed and trajectory by firing up the boosters whenever necessary, a capability the Long March 5B lacked. 
Harvard astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell, who tracked the tumbling rocket part, said on Twitter, “An ocean reentry was always statistically the most likely. It appears China won its gamble… But it was still reckless.”

Sonu Sood’s Sneakers Were Designed By Kanye West & Now Resell For 2X Their Original Price

Last year and again this year as well Sonu Sood has been in the news for his philanthropic ventures. We all know, how he has been going out of his way to help people in need. If Superman were a real character, Sonu Sood would have definitely trumped him. © Instagram/sonu_sood What gets lost in the background of most of this, is just how stylish the actor is, and how suave a dressing sense he is born with. Just recently, Sonu was spotted outside his apartment in Mumbai, in a really dope looking street outfit. Seriously if you ask us, this is one of the best takes on normcore fashion that we have seen in a long time. © Viral Bhayani Sonu was spotted wearing a sleeveless T-shirt from Under Armour, the American sports Apparel makers. The sleeveless tee that he was seen wearing comes from a special collaboration between the brand, and Dwayne Johnson’s Project Rock initiative.  © Viral Bhayani Called the UA x Project Rock Vanish Sleeveless T-Shirt, this piece used to retail for about $40, or roughly Rs 3,000. © Under Armour Along with that, Sonu had paired a rather dapper looking pair of denim, the premium line up from Diesel called the Diesel Black Gold Jeans. The ribbing and the distress marks look rather dope. © Viral Bhayani Because the jeans were dark in colour they had a very understated appeal on their part. © Diesel We also like how, in places, they have used patches of dark blue denim to give the pants some character.
Then, there are the sneakers that Sonu’s wearing. At first, they look like a regular pair of coke white sneakers. Look carefully though, and you’ll see, that he’s wearing a pair of Yeezy 350s. © Viral Bhayani In particular, he’s wearing the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream White Triple Core, a pair of sneakers that were designed by Kanye West. Now, although Kanye owns the Yeezy label, he is involved in designing only a few pieces, like, these sneakers. © Adidas Because they are a pair of Yeezy’s and have some legacy, they were a bit expensive when they were new. © Hypebeast Back in 2017, they used to retail for about $220, or about Rs 17,000-19,000, in India. Now though, they resell for more than twice that. On most sneaker trading and reselling platforms, these pairs go for about $500, or about Rs 40,000. © Viral Bhayani Say what you will, but it seems that some sneakers make better investments than most mutual funds. All kidding aside though, Sonu, it seems, has a great taste in sneakers. Take a bow, man, seriously.

US Man Takes $5 Mn Loan From Covid-19 Relief Fund To Buy Luxury Cars & We're Like 'Bhai Bohot Guts Hai'

While the world is grappling with the adverse effects of the pandemic, there are some people who are making things worse than they already are. Remember the time when a man from Florida blew Covid-19 relief funds in July 2020 to buy himself a Lamborghini? Looks like history does repeat itself, as another similar incident took place wherein a man identified as Mustafa Qadiri, used the PPP loans to buy himself a Lamborghini Aventador S and a Ferrari 458 Italia. That's not it as the seized assets also had a Bentley Continental GT Coupe. Let that sink in! © iStock The 38-year-old man, who lives in Southern California, had been procuring millions of dollars from the government aid which was made to let the small businesses strive amid the pandemic. It is reported that Mustafa obtained at least $5 million from the Federal Covid relief funds fraudulently and was arrested last week for the same.
Federal agents have seized three luxury sports cars allegedly purchased by Mustafa Qadiri, 38, of Irvine, with fraudulently obtained COVID-19 Payment Protection Program (PPP) loans. pic.twitter.com/MIdkjFeZx2 — US Attorney L.A. (@USAO_LosAngeles) May 7, 2021 He has been slapped with several charges including wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, money laundering and bank fraud. According to reports, Qadiri submitted fake loan applications from banks that were non-existent. Morever, the papers included fake tax returns, forged bank records etc. He also used some other name and social security number to get the loans. Mustafa was arrested last week and pleaded not guilty to the charges imposed on him. Besides seizing the expensive cars, the remaining $2 million has also been seized from his account. The US District Judge Josephine L. Staton has now scheduled a trial for this case on June 29. Qadiri has been released with a bond of $100,000. © US Attorney L.A. © US Attorney L.A. The Paycheck Protection Program came into effect in March 2020. It granted low-interest loans to businesses that employed 500 or fewer employees. The U.S Small Business Administration mentioned that at least 8.2 million loans had been given up until March 21 of at least $718 billion.
Here's how the people reacted to this fraudulent act. Thank you for your hard work on this case. This level of greed and hubris makes me sick. Think of who could have truly used these funds.
Oh yeah, he got a PPP loan. Hope he needs it in prison. Penis Protection Plan. — buddydog1 (@buddydog112) May 8, 2021Good work... Now get Kanye and the billionaires who took loans and didn't need them — Strong Moderate (@SMFM) May 8, 2021That’s quite a windfall, Mustafa! — ItsTerri (@ItsTerri) May 7, 2021Can I have the Lambo? I'll put it to good use. — asshole mirror (@NormaltonJim) May 9, 2021They should be investigating the chain of command who approved these “loans”. — FC (@FraserDColeman) May 9, 2021Impressive! Glad to see Justice being done. — MadMerlin (@MadMerlin5) May 9, 2021
