3 Reasons Why People Are Not Pleased With Farhan Akhtar’s 'Toofaan'

The trailer of Farhan Akhtar’s sports drama piqued the interest of the viewers but it seems like the movie hasn’t been able to impress them. The film follows the same template of a former sports star rising from the ashes that we have already seen in many other movies. Farhan plays the role of a local goon, Aziz Ali, whose life changes when he meets the love of his life, Ananya played by Mrunal Thakur. She pushes him to follow boxing and he soon becomes a champion in the ring. He is at the peak of his boxing career when a twist in his fate pushes him down. Paresh Rawal plays the role of Nana Prabhu who trains Aziz Ali. Well, the actors have done a great job but are held back by the predictable script. People who have watched the movie echo the same emotions and have also shared their opinions as to why they didn’t like the movie. 1. Love Jihad AnglePeople questioned the whole concept of love-jihad and felt that the director could have made the film without adding the Hindu-Muslim love story angle. One of the Twitter users even went on to say how could Paresh Rawal take up a role wherein Hindus are shown so intolerant. © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter 2. Lack Of Chemistry Between The Lead Pair People also felt that both Farhan and Mrunal lacked chemistry in their love story and it looked forced on the screen. People loved their acting skills but it was the lack of chemistry that turned them off. © Twitter 3. Below Average Script And Predictable EventsPeople also felt that the script wasn’t up to the mark. They felt it was very generic and dull. Some also felt that the director didn’t focus on the real boxing much and instead relied on too many cliches in the story. © Twitter © Twitter Nonetheless, there are some people who are appreciating the movie and calling it a blockbuster.

8 Of The Worst Bollywood Movies With The Lowest IMDb Ratings That People Regret Watching

Bollywood has given us some great movies with fantastic storylines, but there have also been times when the films have been so baseless and illogical that we ended up cringing hard.  It's certainly hard to predict which movie is the best and which one is the worst since trailers are sometimes quite contradictory. Hence, we took IMDb's help to give you a list of the top 8 worst movies of Bollywood, which are the lowest-rated.  1. Radhe (2021) © Zee Studios Let's start with Radhe because why not? The movie was so bad that even Salman's father didn't appreciate it. 
The film was released on May 13th and also scored the lowest 1.8 IMDb rating. This is also Salman's second lowest-rated movie after Race 3.  Talking of its storyline, if you have watched Dabangg or any other related film, you will understand why we don't even want to get into its details. 2. Sadak 2 (2020) © Vishesh Films Even before Sadak 2 was released, it was declared a flop. 
Mahesh Bhatt's Sadak 2 is a sequel to Sadak, a part-romance and part-thriller, which tries very hard to integrate scenes from the first movie but turned out to be a big failure.  The movie was met with so much criticism that its rating on IMDb is only 1.1. 3. Welcome To New York (2018) © Wiz Films It's easy to surmise that a good lineup of actors in a movie can make it a success, but that's not true.
The cast of Welcome To New York includes Boman Irani, Karan Johar, Sushant Singh Rajput, Sonakshi Sinha etc. Despite that, if you can sit through this long movie, we applaud your patience.  As per IMDB, this movie's rating is 1.5 only. 4. Jodi Breakers (2012) © Prasar Visions Pvt. Ltd Even though Jodi Breakers happened a long time ago, the people who watched it only know the 'impact' it left on them.
The story is about a couple who break relationships. They do divorces to earn money. If this doesn't say enough about why it was a flop, we don't know what will.  Also, the rating? It's only 3.5. 5. Himmatwala (2013) © UTV Motion Pictures You have to be a Himmatwala yourself to watch this movie. 
The original film was rage, but the new version, starring Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah, was so bad that it only received a 1.7 rating.  Even the critics bashed the actors, and it was a flop at the box office as well. 6. Humshakals (2014) © Pooja Entertainment For a film that was supposed to be a rib-tickler, this movie failed big time and received only a 1.7 rating on IMDb. 
The movie starts with Saif Ali Khan performing a stand-up comedy in London, but the jokes are so bad, half the people left the theatres right after this scene. 7. Love Story 2050 (2008) © T-series No debut could be worse than Harman Baweja's Love Story 2050, that scored a 2.6 rating. 
The movie takes you into the future, and while it tries too hard to show flying cars and high rise buildings, the dialogues are obnoxiously bad.  "Your life is like a hot dog without a sausage" is one of them. Oh, also, it runs for three hours and twenty minutes. We wish you good luck! 8. Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag (2007) © K Sera Sera Limited The movies made by Ram Gopal Varma often sound like a project on him. 
Nonetheless, no matter how hard he tries, these films by the director have only tanked at the box office. Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag scored the lowest, 1.7 IMDb rating and was also one of the most regretful projects of Amitabh Bachchan's.

4 Signs Your Partner Has ‘Daddy Issues’ & Here's How To Help Them Deal With It

How many times have you dated a woman and noticed that she may have some quirks that would often come up in conversations or actions, which have nothing to do with you at all? Maybe it was when she got a little too possessive when you’ve given her no reason to be insecure? Or could be her trying to bail out of a perfectly fine relationship because she was scared?
© Ram Gopal Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Well, it could be that you have on your hands is a partner with the infamous ‘daddy issues’.
It’s when your partner may have dealt with a distant father while growing up and now, either projects their own insecurities or fears on your relationship or, chooses a similar spouse as their father, in hopes of working out their adult relationship, in a form of finally winning their father’s approval and love. © T-Series But before you go about confronting your partner about it, it’s always good to first be sure. 
Here are 4 signs to look out for if you think your partner is dealing with daddy issues - 1) She’s Attracted To Older Men © T-Series One of the most telling signs for daddy issues, but not the only one, is that most women dealing with such issues find themselves drawn to older men in their lives. 
Study says it could be because they have had an absent father figure while growing up, and somewhere deep down, always feel the need to fill that space.  2) She’s Too Possessive At Times © MAD Entertainment Seeing your partner hot and bothered, even a tad bit jealous is endearing in its own way. But when that possessiveness and jealousy transcends every other emotion, it is when your partner might be displaying signs of having daddy issues. 
Something that stems out of her need for attention that she would constantly want to be satisfied. 3) Fear Of Being Single © Ram Gopal Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Having felt abandoned in childhood, those who deal with daddy issues often fear being alone in their lives. And for that very reason, staying single doesn’t come easy to them. 
In fact, they may even find themselves becoming serial daters, because handling a break up and being by their lonesome haunts them. 4) Indulges In Self Sabotage © Vishesh Films Many times, subconsciously, a person struggling with daddy issues would end up sabotaging perfectly good and healthy relationships. 
Not because they would have a problem with it, but simply because they wouldn’t be used to what actually happy and healthy relationships are like, having experienced something completely different in their prime years while growing up. Now, chances are that if your partner is displaying most of these behaviours, they might be dealing with certain daddy issues in their life. Which, no matter how it seems, is never easy to live with. But that is where you come in, for if there is anyone who can help them walk through this, it is you.  Here are 3 ways to keep in mind when you’re dating someone with serious daddy issues: 1) Tread With Patience & Support © MAD Entertainment It is a fact that no one can actually ‘fix’ you, but it always helps when you have a partner who is willing to stand with you while you figure your way out. 
If you believe your partner is struggling with daddy issues, you might already be aware of their fears and traumas. Use that knowledge to address their concerns and make sure you make them feel loved and heard. 2) Don’t Use It Against Them © iStock Fights, arguments and heated discussions can go south very fast, especially between couples. It is then that you have to remind yourself to never use her daddy issues against her, because it is a part of her life that she has no control over. 
A strained relationship with fathers leaves a lot of children with life-long scars and the last thing your partner wants is to be ridiculed over a part of their life they are still not over. 3) Take Professional Help © Red Chillies Entertainment As much as you try to be there for your partner, and even offer them unmatched support and understanding, it is best to recommend professional help. 
A therapist might be in a better position to help your partner work through their issues in the longer run.

‘Monster Hunter Stories 2’ Reinvents The Monster-Collecting Genre With An Awesome Story

Monster-collecting games have been on the rise ever since the genre became mainstream thanks to Persona, Shin Megami Tensei and other monster-collecting games. Now, the most logical franchise to take a step towards the genre happens to be Monster Hunter and trust me when I say this, it was high time we finally got to see it in the form of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. 
Monster Hunter Stores 2: Wings of Ruin may just be one of the best monster-collecting games that may have come out in recent years, even giving Pokemon a run for its money simply because the developers have taken extra care at implementing mechanics Pokemon fans have been wanting for years. In fact, Capcom has improved upon many of the best elements you would find in monster-collecting JRPGs.  The beauty of this game is that it appeals to almost every kind of player. Whether you’re familiar with the Monster Hunter franchise or not, this game demands your attention even if you disregard it as just another monster-collecting game.  © Capcom Having said that, there are some improvements needed in the combat system. For starters, you cannot control the move types of your monsties which gets very annoying after some time. Instead, you would see monsties fighting amongst each other using weak attacks that would often make me look away from the screen and scroll Twitter on my phone. You also don’t see the health bar of any new monstie you encounter in the world. I would often make fatal decisions as I would never know how much health the enemy monstie would have left after taking some damage. 
Collecting monsters also does not work the same way as it does in Pokemon. You need to head to several dungeons that contain eggs that later hatch into monsties you can use. These dungeons are randomised most of the time and are of different sizes. You can also get rare eggs from these dungeons which hatch into powerful monsties that you can use in your battles. In total, there are 128 creatures that you can collect. Every creature comes with its own different stats and abilities which you can leverage throughout the game.

6 Movies By Ram Gopal Varma So Epic That Even Trolls Can’t Deny Their Classic Status

Ram Gopal Varma truly is an enigma. It may be hard to believe now, but at one point in time, he was one of the most sought after directors, and not by your random actors, by people who really knew their stuff. 
© BCCL There was a point in time when he was churning out movies that were both critically acclaimed, as well as commercially hits.
© Varma Creations Today though, he is known more for the flops he gave and the controversies he was embroiled in, more than his hits, which, for sure will go down as classics on Indian Cinema.
Here are a few such movies that prove RGV was once a true cinematic genius. 1. Shiva © Varma Creations This was one of Ram Gopal Varma’s initial films, back when no major producer was willing to bet on him. He signed up Nagarjuna Akkineni, as the lead in the film, and managed to get the film on the floors. The film was a raging success and established RGV as a bankable director. It also paved the way for Nagarjuna to try to make his mark in the Hindi film industry. 
2. Satya Without a doubt, this is that one movie that RGV will always be remembered for. Had it not been for him, we probably wouldn’t have Manoj Bajpayee working in mainstream cinema. Satya is one of those movies that you just have to watch to really understand its impact on Indian cinema. It definitely is an all-time classic in Indian Cinema’s history. Bhoot Hear us out on this one. India doesn’t exactly know how to make a decent horror film. For 2004, it was way ahead of its time. The film was genuinely scary, thanks to how convincing and endearing Urmila Matondkar was in the film. Apart from being a critical hit, Bhoot was also a massive commercial success. Rakt Charitra Rakt Charitra is again one of those biographical movies that become larger than the subject or the inspiration of these films. It is gritty, gory, and has all the hallmarks of a gangster film that is made by Ram Gopal Varma. Rangeela Yup, one of Bollywood’s all-time greatest hits, Rangeela, was directed by him, in case you weren’t aware. The film remains to be one of Aamir Khan’s career-defining movies and that’s saying something, given his filmography. Rangeela was one of the most commercially successful films of not just 1995, but for that decade. Again, one of those films of RGV that will go down as an Indian Classic. Sarkar And of course, there is this gem of a piece. If you enjoy a proper dramatic, political crime thriller, this is a film that you simply can’t ignore. If you’re one of those who think that films should be just entertainment, and brainless, this one is certainly not for you. For everyone else though, Sarkar & Sarkar Raj are cinematic masterpieces.

Kodaikanal Homestay Owner Offers Free 2-Day Vacation To Students Who Failed 10th Exams

This year has been particularly tough for children and school kids, but their plight has gone unnoticed. From the crucial school years spent on the screen inside the four walls of their homes to speculating day in and day out if they would be asked to risk their lives and sit for the offline exams, the whole year was nothing but distressing for them. 
© iStock Moreover, it became even tougher for students who failed the 10th board exams amidst this. The SSLC results were declared a couple of days ago and while most passed, there was a section of students who unfortunately flunked on the basis of their past academic performance and scores. It is highly unfair and unfortunate.
© iStock To help such students deal with the despair and stress, an entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu came up with an exciting proposal. Sudheesh K, fondly called Sudhi, is a homestay owner who has many lodging properties in Kodaikanal including Hammock. He decided to open the gates of his homestays for the students who failed the exam this year to unwind and relax, free of cost, to boost their morale. 
© iStock He put up a post on social media offering the students a free stay at his properties in Kodaikanal. “Did you fail the SSLC exam this year ??? You are cordially invited to Kodaikanal," he wrote in Malayalam on his Facebook post. The post has gone viral and he has been getting innumerable calls from students eager to avail this generous offer. Naturally!
Speaking to a news publication, Sudheesh said, “Ever since the Class 10 results were announced, there has been a lot of victory sharing in social circles. What we often do not see is the other side of this. There is a segment that is being ostracised and ridiculed for having failed. So, I thought of offering something in my capacity to help them deal with the crisis.” 
© iStock The offer is valid only for students who didn’t pass the SSLC exam this year. They can bring their parents along with them and can spend two days in any of his properties free of charge. “The place is silent and away from all craziness. It is the ideal place to get away from all stress and get refreshed,” he said. 
© iStock Sudheesh wanted to help students and their parents deal better with this crisis because he felt it can be really tough for students these days. “It isn’t like old times, during my school days. Then, a failure would be taken in its stride. Now, students are under tremendous pressure. And passing the tenth standard is a matter of prestige for the family. A little bit of time away from this stress can work wonders for the kids and their parents,” he said.

Bhushan Kumar, the Kingpin of the Indian music industry or in other words, the Bollywood music industry, has been accused of raping a 30-year-old woman on the premise of providing her a job. © Zee News Kumar, who is the son of the legendary T-Series founder, Gulshan Kumar who was killed in 1999, is the serving Managing Director of the music label and also an Indian film and music producer.
© BCCL As per the police, an FIR was lodged against the music baron on Thursday (July 15) after the victim alleged that she had been sexually assaulted by Kumar from September 2017 until 2020.
Mumbai | Case registered u/s 376 IPC against Bhushan Kumar, managing director, T-Series, at DN Nagar Police station on allegations of rape with a 30-year-old woman on the pretext of engaging her for a project at the company. Probe underway, no arrests made till now: Police — ANI (@ANI) July 16, 2021 "Mumbai police have registered a case against T-Series company's Managing Director Bhushan Kumar, son of music baron late Gulshan Kumar, for allegedly raping a woman on the promise of providing a job to her. The offense was registered at DN Nagar police station in Andheri (West) on the basis of the complaint filed by the 30-year-old woman," an official said on Friday (July 16).  So far, the police have refused to provide the details as to when the alleged crime took place. "As per the complaint, Bhushan Kumar allegedly raped the woman on the pretext of providing a job to her in some projects of his own company," said an official speaking to PTI.  According to the police, the woman said that she had been cheated by him and that was the reason she had approached the police. The woman had also alleged that Kumar had threatened to harm if she dared open her mouth to anyone. The police have now charged Kumar under Indian Penal Code sections 376 (rape), 420 (cheating), 506 (criminal intimidation).  Following this, Kumar's team also went on to issue a statement.  "The complaint filed against Mr. Bhushan Kumar is completely false and malicious and the contents of the same are denied. It has been falsely alleged that the lady in question was sexually exploited between 2017 to 2020 on the pretext of giving her work. It is a matter of record that she has already worked for T-Series banner in Film and music videos. Around March 2021 she approached Mr. Bhushan Kumar seeking help to fund one of the web series which she wanted to produce, which was politely refused. Thereafter, In June 2021 after the lifting of lockdown in Maharashtra, she started approaching the T-Series banner in collusion with her accomplice demanding a huge sum of money as extortion amount. Consequently, a complaint was filed by T-Series banner against the attempted extortion at with police at Amboli police station on 1st July 2021. We also have evidence in the form of audio recording for the extortion attempt and the same shall be provided to investigating agency. The present complaint filed by her is nothing but a counterblast to the complaint filed against her and her accomplice for the offense of extortion. We are in the process of consulting our lawyers in this regard and will take appropriate legal action," said the statement.

From First Dates To Board Meetings, Here’s Why You Need To Ditch The Deodorant & Switch To Body Perfumes

Whenever we step out, we all have a routine we follow. We take a shower, apply sunscreen, do our hair, carefully put together an outfit, choose a sneaker to match and then all the effort goes to waste when we pick up the same deodorant we wear to the gym and spray it all over us.  While it is perfectly normal to use a powerful deodorant when you are sweating in the gym, why use the same underwhelming or overpowering smell when heading out with friends or on a date or even a meeting.? If you are still using one bottle of deodorant for all occasions then you need to stop and walk into the world of body perfumes and here is why! What Are Body Fragrances?Aromatic oils, alcohol and water are all crucial components in any perfume you wear. It has three distinct layers of notes: top notes, heart notes, and base notes. When you apply any perfume, top notes create the first fragrance impression you notice. Depending on the type of perfume you use, it might last anywhere between 15 minutes to 2 hours. Light, floral, fruity, aquatic and citrus notes are commonly found in men's top notes. MensXP Middle notes are the foundation of every fragrance and do not appear until the top notes have settled. A perfume's middle notes can endure for 3 to 5 hours. They also emit a varied type of smell depending on your body chemistry. Fruity and spicy scents dominate the middle notes. This is what determines how much your perfume costs. Finally, base notes are crucial for a scent's lingering effect. Vetiver, vanilla, leather, smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, musk and other base notes are common in men's fragrances. Different Types Of Body FragrancesBody Perfume, Eau De Parfum & Eau De Toilette are the three most known types of body fragrances. When choosing the right fragrance, it is important to understand the difference between the three.  MensXP Perfume is the most concentrated form containing around 20-40% essential oils or aromatic scents. These make it last for 10 hours or more. When you look at body perfumes like The Man Company’s Blanc, it has the perfect combination of light and fresh notes that can be worn every day. The perfume is made with lemon top notes, lavender middle notes, and musky base notes. MensXP Eau De Parfum has a 15-20% fragrance concentration with alcohol and water used as a base. These can last up to 7-10 hours. EDPs generally contain a blend of essential oils. The Man Company’s EDP Oud is made with top notes of fresh citruses and whisky. It has earthy middle notes of coriander and relaxing base notes of patchouli & vanilla.  MensXP Eau De Toilette has 5-10% scented oil concentration. It can last anywhere between 7-8 hours, depending on the brand. These fragrances are generally very seductive and elegant. The Man Company’s EDT Noir is a great choice for a night out or a first date. With top notes of lemon, carnation middle notes and a base note of amber, this fragrance will leave a lasting impression. When it comes to picking a fragrance, the only immediate quality that we attribute to a great scent is its ability to keep us smelling great all day. But there are numerous benefits that a good fragrance provides and yet a vast majority of men do not wear perfume daily. Here’s why every man should use body perfume: No Gas Formulation __ECOMPRODUCT__2096__ The one issue that we all face when using deodorants is that most of them contain gas that faces away within an hour. Body Perfumes like Blanc by The Man Company has a no-gas formulation that makes them long-lasting both in the bottle and on your body. Higher Essential Oil Concentration The Man Company Body perfumes have a higher concentration of oils than alcohol and water which makes the fragrance stronger and more lasting. Deodorants on the other hand have a high concentration of alcohol that makes the scent hit hard but fades away even faster. This is why body perfumes are a better choice.  __ECOMPRODUCT__2097__ Fights Body Odour & Acts As A Perfume iStock Who doesn’t want to smell nice throughout the day without having to worry about applying deodorant again and again? A body perfume does both. It covers foul odour and makes you smell like an English garden all day long. Used On Pulse Points __ECOMPRODUCT__2098__ Unlike deodorant that we spray all over our clothes when we head out, body perfume is used on pulse points like the wrist, neck and back of the ears. This helps in keeping the fragrance on our body for longer and has us smelling amazing for hours.
To Wrap UpOur strongest sense is our sense of smell. It is linked to many memories and we all have strong emotional bonds with it. Wearing perfume is a unique method of expressing yourself that goes beyond sight. It makes you stand out and lends you a great first impression. So, pick a perfume that helps enhance your personality and makes you feel confident at all times! Explore More

4 Reasons Why Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Toofaan’ & Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ Shouldn’t Be Compared

Farhan Akhtar recently said that he isn’t disturbed by the audience finding similarities between his latest film Toofaan, and Salman Khan’s 2016 film Sultan. Both the films are sports dramas and revolve around the lives of down and out athletes who make a comeback. 
He was recently asked in an interview, that whether the comparisons disturb him or not. He said that the structure of the two films can be the same, but the journeys of the two characters are very different. He said that broadly speaking, any sportsperson who defies all odds to make a comeback can fall in this category. The film Toofaan is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and released on July 16 on Amazon Prime Video. However, we watched the film and didn’t feel that the two movies in any way were similar apart from the outline of the film. So, here are 4 reasons why Farhan Akhtar’s Toofaan and Salman Khan’s Sultan shouldn’t be compared. Actors  View this post on Instagram Salman Khan’s style of acting and Farhan Akhtar’s acting are completely different. Also, Salman Khan played the role of a wrestler in Sultan and Farhan Akhtar is playing the role of a boxer who lives in Dongri, Maharashtra.  Different Storyline  View this post on Instagram The film is about a championship boxer who is an orphan and is a local gangster in the area where he lives. He then falls in love with a doctor and gets inspired to become a boxer and gets training under the best boxing coach. The story of the film is extremely intricate and is very different from Salman Khan’s film Sultan. The story also sheds light on the Hindu-Muslim conflict and majorly revolves around the same.
However, it failed to make an impact through the storyline of the film or to even prove a point.  Characters  View this post on Instagram The characters in the film are very different from Sultan as Farhan Akhtar plays the role of a ‘tapori’ in the film and Mrunal Thakur is a doctor. And Paresh Rawal plays the role of Farhan Akhtar’s coach.  Direction Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has already proved that he understands sports with his film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag in which Farhan Akhtar played the role of a Olympics runner. This is his second film in the sports arena with Farhan Akhtar where he plays the role of a boxer.
And in every scene throughout the movie, you get to see that the film is directed beautifully.

T20 World Cup: Fans Over The Moon After ICC Places India, Pakistan In Same Group

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the groups for the T20 World Cup scheduled to be held later this year in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. The biggest talking point of the announcement was that arch-rivals India and Pakistan were placed together in the same group. This year’s tournament will be played in two stages. The first stage will be a qualifier round from where four teams will reach the Super 12 stage. Besides six associate nations, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will also compete in the Qualifiers after they failed to earn automatic qualification through their T20I rankings. © Reuters England, Australia, South Africa, the West Indies, and the two qualifying nations form the Group A, while India, Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan and two other qualifiers were placed in the Group B.
After the ICC’s announcement, fans from both the countries were over the moon with the prospect of watching the two South Asian neighbours clash once again at the biggest stage. Scenes at the @ICC office right now#T20worldcup pic.twitter.com/Z4wPrIutbI — Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) July 16, 2021 Cricket is the most popular sport in both the countries and the rivalry between India Pakistan is second to none in the world but sadly the fans have to wait for the multi-nation tournaments to see their side take on each other. India and Pakistan last faced off in the 2019 World Cup in England where Virat Kohli’s men came out on top, thanks to a brilliant century by opener Rohit Sharma. In fact, India is yet to lose a single World Cup match against Pakistan and given the past record, fans have already started anticipating yet another win. #T20worldcup #ICC

India’s last two knockout defeats came against Kane Williamson’s side and supporters wanted to avoid them at all cost. India lost to the Kiwis in the semi-final of the 2019 ODI World Cup, while their latest heartbreak came last month when the Blackcaps came out on top in the World Test Championship final in Southampton.

‘Daath Saaf Rakhne The’ Second Potential Source Of Rishabh Pant’s Virus Makes Trolls Happy

On Thursday, it was revealed that Rishabh Pant contracted the COVID-19 virus in the middle of a 20-day break that the BCCI had allowed for the Indian cricketers ahead of the five-match Test series against England. Since then, one of the biggest topics of debate has revolved around where did the 23-year old come in touch with the virus. Initially, many speculated it was during a EURO 2020 match between England and Germany which Pant had gone to see at the Wembley stadium with his friends. View this post on Instagram However, information on a new potential source has come in the more recent reports suggesting that the cricketer may have gotten infected during his back-to-back visits to a dentist in the United Kingdom. “Pant had gone to a dentist on July 5 and 6, and could have picked the virus from the clinic. On July 7, he had been vaccinated," a source told The Times of India. Before the emergence of new information, trolls were making fun of Pant for not wearing a mask in a heavily crowded place like the Wembley stadium during the England-Germany match. However, now it has allowed them to joke around about the Indian cricketer for having dental issues. Just read that Rishabh Pant's dentist visit might be possible source of infection. Please brush your teeth atleast twice a day. And check whether your toothpaste has salt.

wear a mask, maintain social distancing and wash your hands. — The Joker (@Joker122018) July 16, 2021isliye jyada toffee aur chocolate nahi khana chaiye.

He is asymptomatic and currently undergoing self-isolation at the place where he reported positive. He is being closely monitored by the BCCI medical team and is on his way to recovery. He will be able to join the squad in Durham after returning two negative RT-PCR tests." Going to be an unreal experience courtside.

Rules have changed (with the crowd being allowed inside venues). They were on leave and it’s physically impossible to wear mask all the time,” Ganguly told News18. Asked about whether he is worried about the Indian squad who are gearing up for the Test series against England after Pant’s case came to light, Ganguly replied: “No worries. They will be fine.”

5 Little Things Women Actually Expect Men To Do On The First Date

So, you got a date with the woman you’ve been trying to ask out for weeks. Now what?  First date means first impression and there’s no room for slip-ups. If you are unsure of what women really want guys to do when they are meeting them for the first time, you are not alone.   © Maddock Films Women aren’t as complicated as men think. But it’s understood why men would find women complicated to read. It’s because we don’t ask but observe, especially on the first date with a guy. Also, we expect the guy to be sweet and respectful, which shouldn't be too difficult.
© Fox Star Studios Apart from these basic things, we also expect the guy we are going out with to do little things that make us feel super special. It doesn’t have to be a big romantic setup or an expensive dinner. Believe me, most women would simply want to see the person you are and how you treat them, rather than how lavish the date is. 
© RSVP Movies Let me make it simple for you. Here are little things that women expect from a guy on the first date:
A genuine compliment © iStock A simple compliment goes a long way. She probably took a lot of time deciding what she’s gonna wear, how she is going to do her hair and put just the right amount of makeup for the date. Telling her she looks good or beautiful can actually make her feel you are worth all that effort. Don’t wait till you both go home to text it to her. Compliment her right then and there and see her blushing.
The good ol’ chivalry © iStock Does she want me to pull the chair for her? Should I hold the door? Should I let her pay if she insists on splitting the bill? Yeah, it can be confusing for men since a lot of women despise men doing stuff for them. But I’ll let you in on a secret. Deep inside, we love when a guy we are meeting for the first time is a gentleman to us. A man being nice and courteous doesn’t offend a woman, being sexist does.  
Make her feel important © iStock Most people are either nervous or take time to open up, which means they can be awfully quiet on the first date. Rather than filling the silence by talking endlessly yourself, ask questions and let her tell her stories too. Also, if you two are meeting at a cafe or a restaurant, don’t order for her or ask what she wants. Hand over the menu and ask her to order for the table to make her feel extra special and important on the date. 
Don’t force her  © iStock There’s no harm in asking to take your dinner date further for a quick stroll on the beach or suggesting to grab a bite after a movie date. However, ask just once and if she says she can’t because she has to go home or doesn’t feel like, simply quit it. Be responsible and respectful of her and don’t impose any spontaneous plans on her if it seems like she isn’t up for it.    
Tell her you had fun © iStock When you are parting ways, give her a hug and tell her you had a great time. You don’t have to say you want to meet up again, if you aren’t sure or think she might not be. Hinting on a second date can be uncomfortable but telling her you had fun meeting her will absolutely make her think you are nice and not clingy.

Paresh Rawal Not Being Able To Launch His Son Shows The Ugly Side Of Film Industry

Paresh Rawal has been entertaining the audience for years now but we feel that he hasn’t been celebrated enough. A few days ago, director Hansal Mehta had announced that he will bring together Paresh Rawal's son, Aditya Rawal, with legendary actor Shashi Kapoor's grandson, Zahaan Kapoor, in his next film. View this post on InstagramAditya has already made his debut recently with Bamfaad. His debut, however, was not grand and the kind of launch he got isn’t something you'd think of when you think of a star kid's debut. View this post on Instagram
Revealing why Paresh couldn’t launch his son on a bigger scale, he told Indian Express, “I did not launch him as my son because I don't have that kind of money. To launch my son, you require big machinery. But isn't this good? Through his own effort, he got noticed. People loved his work in Bamfaad. And now, he is working with Hansal Mehta. I mean, he is working with a director like him. So, his work is fetching him work. He doesn't need his father's recommendation.” View this post on InstagramTalking about Aditya's career in Bollywood before his acting debut, Paresh Rawal had said, "Before my son became an actor, he was a writer. He went to NYU to study scriptwriting and playwriting. In regard to acting, he trained in London International School of Performing Arts for 6-8 months." Aditya co-wrote Panipat with Ashutosh Gowariker, who directed the 2019 film, along with Ashok Chakradhar, Chandrashekhar Dhavalikar, and Ranjeet Bahadur. View this post on Instagram
On the work front, Paresh Rawal has recently featured in Farhan Akhtar’s Toofaan. He will also be seen in the comedy film Hungama 2 alongside Meezaan Jaffrey and Shilpa Shetty.

Only True Fans Of Kapil Sharma Can Find Him In The Throwback Picture He Shared On His IG

There would be hardly any desi household that didn’t turn on their TV every night after dinner just to watch the popular Comedy Nights With Kapil. It seems to be a ritual across the country to tune in to the first ever live comedy show hosted by the very funny Kapil Sharma.
© Instagram/Kapil Sharma However, only a few people, probably the die hard fans of the comedian, know that he can do more than tickling your funny bone. He studied from Apeejay College of Fine Arts, Jalandhar and used to do theatre in college. No wonder, he always wanted to act in movies. 
© Instagram/Kapil Sharma Kapil recently posted a throwback photo from his college days, where he and his friends are having a “musical session” after the rehearsal. However, here’s the catch. It’s really tough to spot him in the picture. We bet you can’t. And, don’t look in the comments.
© Instagram/Kapil Sharma He captioned the photo, “After finishing the rehearsals of our play, musical session with my team,” asking his followers to spot him in the picture. “Find me in the picture N write in comments below [sic]”, he added in the caption.  
© Instagram/Kapil Sharma Before we tell you which one is him (we had to look through the comments too, TBH), here is what Archana Puran Singh wrote to pull his leg. “Found you @kapilsharma !! Right hand side pe... kaale dupatte mein, hai na...? (It’s you on the right hand side, wearing the black dupatta, isn’t it?”  
© Instagram/Archana Puran Singh Actually, he is the guy in the blue shirt, wearing glasses and holding a daphli (tambourine) in his hands. Though he looks totally unrecognisable in the photo, a lot of his followers were able to spot him. A user wrote, “Man with blue shirt and spectacles.” Another wrote, “Only boy with specs.” 
© Instagram/Kapil Sharma His friends from college also commented on the picture, not to find him but reminisce about the college days. His co-star on his talk show, Rajiv Thakur wrote, "Aur main hamesha dukaan pe chala jata tha , jab masti karne ka time aata tha (and I always used to go to the shop when it was time to have fun) @kapilsharma Always missed these sessions”

'Toofaan' Review: Farhan, Paresh Are Shining Stars Of An Otherwise Not-So-Stormy Boxing Drama

People have had high expectations from Toofan ever since the trailer came out. Just like the audience, my hopes were also high but it all came crashing down.  Farhan Akhtar has teamed up with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for Toofaan after the duo collaborated on Bhaag Milkha Bhaag which was a huge success. However, just a few minutes into Toofaan, you will feel like there’s so much the director wants to say that the film comes across as crammed with content. It’s the same old formula of presenting a rags-to-riches story, which does evoke many emotions but the film’s momentum drops way too early. On paper, the story is very promising but when it comes to projection, it isn’t that appealing. © Amazon Prime Video The film starts off with a Dongri extortionist named Ajju Bhai played by Farhan seeking a purpose. He gets a certain direction in life after meeting a local doctor, Ananya, played by Mrunal Thakur. She makes him understand that his life is not meant for wasting on his ‘gunda-mawaali’ antics. She gives him a reason to start valuing his life and follow boxing as his passion. We then get to see his training and transformation under Nana Prabhu played by Paresh Rawal.
© Amazon Prime Video Well, I can’t tell you all the story here but there's so much happening back to back that it’s tiresome after a certain point in the narrative. Moreover, the love Jihad angle reaffirms the fact that the movie boasts of a lot of cliches when it comes to representing Hindu-Muslim ties.
© Amazon Prime Video What also went wrong was that it became predictable and the run-time of about 160 minutes started to seem like a drag. There were sequences that were forcefully added to the narrative, probably to increase the length of the movie. The dialogues also couldn’t add a punch because they felt like they were taken from the old template of a 90s Bollywood movie.
What truly worked, however, were the performances by the actors. Farhan Akhtar maintained a strong grip on his character throughout the film. You won't feel that he is Farhan and not Aziz even for a moment. We have known that Farhan gives his blood and sweat to his characters, and he doesn’t disappoint here too.  © Amazon Prime Video Mrunal also does a decent job but if you've seen her in Love Sonia, you'd know that she has a lot more to deliver but is restrained by the script. I genuinely felt that she could have done far better if her character was written in a better manner.
© Amazon Prime Video Paresh Rawal never failed to create magic whenever he was on screen and it’s needless to say why he is one of the actors that we need to celebrate way more than we have done so far. His dialogue delivery to his expressions, everything was top-notch. With that being said, I felt there should have been more depth to his character, considering the actor the director had on board.
© Amazon Prime Video The talented Vijay Raaz and Darshan Kumar were only reduced to cameos but they both gave strong performances even in that limited time frame. Supriya Pathak’s talent was also grossly wasted but she was a delight whenever she was on screen. Mohan Agashe and Hussain Dalal did get screen space but their characters lacked any purpose.
© Amazon Prime Video In a nutshell, Toofaan is a not-so-stormy boxing drama and could have been far better if Rakesyh Omprakash Mehra hadn't resorted to old templates of presenting a story based on sports.

R Ashwin’s Secret Weapon Rings Warning Bell In English Camp Ahead Of Test Series

Veteran Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is arguably the most skillful bowler in world cricket at the moment and the secret to his success lies in the fact that he is never satisfied with the end result and always strives to try something new. The amount of variations the off-spinner has up his arsenal makes it difficult for any batsman to pick his deliveries and Ashwin has no plans of giving any sort of respite to the English batsmen in the upcoming five-match Test series. © Instagram/Ravichandran Ashwin Despite being one of the senior-most players in the Indian cricket team, Ashwin doesn’t take his job for granted, setting a perfect example for the youngsters to follow. When most of his teammates were busy enjoying their three-week break, Ashwin finished his vacation early and decided to spend the last few days playing a county match for Surrey.
It is a well known fact that an off-spinner uses his fingers to bowl different variations but not all bowlers experiment with their bowling action because it’s the most difficult thing to do for any bowler except Ashwin. Very admirable and proactive of Ravi Ashwin to take up the opportunity of a game for @surreycricket & snuff a 6 wkt haul. Locked in a nice battle with Jack Leach at the Oval. Nice Test Summer ahead. — Ian Raphael Bishop (@irbishi) July 14, 2021 When he turned up for Surrey, all eyes were on him and even he knew that the opposition batsmen would be watching him. With not much help from the pitch, things didn’t go his way in the first innings and all he could manage was one wicket. In the second innings, he wreaked havoc and ran through Somerset’s batting line-up picking up six wickets and rang a bell or two in the opposition camp ahead of the series. Watch all six wickets for @ashwinravi99 at The Kia Oval this morning, as Somerset were bowled out for just 69.

@DelhiCapitals @BCCI pic.twitter.com/4ybYW4dAno — Surrey Cricket (@surreycricket) July 14, 2021 While most fans marvelled at the end result, not many observed that Ashwin had made a slight change in his bowling action, bringing his right arm over right shoulder before releasing the ball. Playing on spin-friendly tracks in India, Ashwin didn’t load up in the same manner and it clearly suggests that he has made this slight adjustment with the England series in mind. Meanwhile after making 420 in the first innings Somerset have been bowled by Surrey for 69 in the 2nd innings with Ashwin getting 6-27. Not a bad way to get ready for some test matches! — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 14, 2021 The last time India won a Test series on English soil was way back in 2007 under Rahul Dravid’s leadership. If the Virat Kohli-led side plays to its full potential, they have a realistic chance of beating England and they are totally aware of that. The series becomes all the more important because it marks the beginning of the second edition of the World Test Championship, hence would like to start their fresh campaign on a winning note. It is Ashwin's attitude and work ethic which has made him such a fantastic bowler for India. Match figure of 7/126 was just a bonus. Getting 58 overs to bowl in a first class game ahead of a very important series is a great sign.
@ashwinravi99 — R P Singh रुद्र प्रताप सिंह (@rpsingh) July 14, 2021 It remains to be seen if Ashwin’s tweaked bowling action could be the game-changer or not but one thing is for sure that it has definitely created some doubts in the minds of the opposition players... and for us it's already a win.

From Curly To Straight, Here's How To Care For Hair During This Monsoon

The rains offer a much-needed reprieve from the scorching heat of summer, as well as a great deal of romance, but they also bring dampness. The humidity in the air is bad enough to induce hair loss, frizz, and dandruff, the ultimate evil. As a result of the humid weather, your scalp sweats, providing a breeding ground for germs and fungi. Not to mention the grime and grease that gets sucked into this sticky mess if your head is in the rain for even a few seconds. And, because we don't want your mane to get in the way of you enjoying the monsoons! Hair Care Tips For The Monsoon:1. Wash Your Hair On Alternative DaysRainwater is acidic by nature, and it can cause damage to your hair and scalp. Natural shampoos and conditioners that are sulphate-free are essential for keeping your scalp clean, rejuvenated, and nourished.  __ECOMPRODUCT__2093__ If it becomes wet in the rain, wash it right away, regardless of the timetable. If you have naturally oily hair, wash it every 2-3 days to avoid over-stripping it of its natural oils. But if you have coloured hair then you need to use specific shampoo and care for it accordingly. 2. Avoid styling products © iStock Over-styling your hair with gels and wax isn't a good idea right now. More sweating and dandruff are likely as a result of the extra moisture. Choose water-based products and sea salt hair sprays if you can't live without styling your hair.
3. Keep your mane dry © MensXP Don't leave your hair wet for an extended period of time, whether you just took a shower or played football in the rain. Hair breakage can also be caused by rubbing a towel vigorously against your hair to dry it. Instead, dab your hair with a towel and squeeze out the extra moisture. A blow dryer is also an option when rushing to get ready.
4. Conditioner? AbsolutelyTo combat frizz and keep your hair smooth and manageable, you'll need a powerful conditioner. If you have oily hair, though, a moderate conditioner will help to balance the moisture. __ECOMPRODUCT__2094__ If you have a shampoo that works for your curly hair, there's no need to switch to something new during the monsoon, but if you have frizzy hair, you should also use a hair mask. Apply an anti-frizz cream containing shea butter, jojoba/almond oil, or other moisturising components all over your strands, especially the ends, if you have straight, floppy hair. 5. A short haircut © iStock If you're not too committed to your hair and are prepared to try something new, a buzz cut or a crew cut can be a good option. You can even go for a beautiful undercut, which gives you more freedom with your mane. These hairstyles are easy to maintain and will take care of half of your monsoon hair worries.
6. Regular OilingAnother monsoon hair care advice is to use coconut oil as a natural conditioner 15-20 minutes before shampooing.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1580__ Coconut oil makes your hair greasy and reduces the quantity of water your hair soaks up while you're washing it. It also treats a variety of scalp issues. If you have curly hair, however, avoid using oil and instead use a gel-based serum. 7. Use The Right Hair Brush__ECOMPRODUCT__2095__ It's crucial to use the correct kind of comb to avoid excessive frizz and damage caused by tangling. Because of the increased humidity, a wide-tooth comb is recommended to avoid breakage and aid in the dispersion of natural scalp oils. To Wrap UpEvery season brings its own challenges for your hair and skin, so while having a regular care regimen helps, it is important to tweak it as per the weather. The care regimen should majorly depend on the type of hair you have. Whether curly, straight, frizzy or oily, it is important to understand what your hair needs so that you always end up with smooth and healthy locks.  Explore More

‘Impossible To Wear Mask All The Time’ Ganguly Defends Starboy Rishabh Pant’s Mask-Less Trip

Former Indian skipper and the current President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly has spoken about wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant contracting the COVID-19 virus in the United Kingdom. Pant tested positive with the virus shortly after his visit to the Wembley stadium where he watched the EURO 2020 match between England and Germany on June 30. The cricketer went on to share a few pictures from the experience on the internet but his fans were quick to notice that he wasn’t wearing a mask. View this post on Instagram “We have seen Euro Championship and Wimbledon in England. Rules have changed (with the crowd being allowed inside venues). They were on leave and it’s physically impossible to wear mask all the time,” Ganguly told News18. Asked about whether he is worried about the Indian squad who are gearing up for the Test series against England after Pant’s case came to light, Ganguly replied: “No worries. They will be fine.” Going to be an unreal experience courtside. Let’s play @DjokerNole v @MattBerrettini #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/QGDbEzYNB1 — Ravi Shastri (@RaviShastriOfc) July 11, 2021 On Thursday, when the news of Pant getting the virus was first made public, the BCCI also shared that they had recommended the cricketers to avoid going to famous or crowded places, for instance the EURO 2020 matches or the Wimbledon. Still, while players like Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah visited the Football games, head coach Ravi Shastri was spotted at the Wimbledon final. View this post on Instagram “Pant, who had not stayed in the team hotel during the break period, tested positive on 8th July. He is asymptomatic and currently undergoing self-isolation at the place where he reported positive. He is being closely monitored by the BCCI Medical Team and is on his way to recovery. He will be able to join the squad in Durham after returning two negative RT-PCR tests,” BCCI said on Thursday. “The BCCI Medical Team have identified B. Arun, Bowling Coach, Wriddhiman Saha and Abhimanyu Easwaran as close contacts of Garani, who was in the team hotel when he tested positive following RT-PCR tests on 14th July. The four personnel will undergo 10-day isolation and will remain in their respective rooms in the team hotel in London,” BCCI added.

Vaughan Trolls Jaffer On Becoming Odisha Head Coach But Indian Fans Show Him His Place

Wasim Jaffer and Michael Vaughan are two of the most popular cricketers on Twitter and both of them often engage in hilarious banters, providing great entertainment to their fans. They never miss any opportunity to pull each other’s leg and fans love the manner in which they do that but most of the time, it is Vaughan who ends up getting trolled by Indian supporters. © BCCL It seems the former England skipper hasn’t learned anything from his past experiences and despite knowing that he would be brutally trolled by scores of Indian fans, he decided to take a dig at the former Indian opener.
Jaffer recently signed a two-year deal to become the head coach of Odisha and Vaughan decided to pull his leg and asked: “Does he need an assistant”. © Reuters Jaffer has shut Vaughan down many times in the past but it wasn’t needed this time around as Indian fans took charge on his behalf and showed him his right place.

The same thing happened this time as well, as most of the fans took his request rather seriously and told him that the only job they see him doing any sort of justice is carrying drinks to the ground. Yes Indeed. It’s very hot out there in India and probably he needs constant water supply. So yes, you will be good fit as a water boy. My two cents🏻 — Rishit (@iamRishitSheth7) July 15, 2021Tu drinksman ban ja bhai — Taang_Twister (@baskarpagle) July 15, 2021You are not 'coming home" Michael — Phaneendra (@phanee_s) July 15, 2021Vaughan has made it a habit of his to rile up Indian fans with his tweets and Jaffer has often trolled him in his using style. During the World Test Championship final, Jaffer had used an epic Lagaan meme to hit back at Vaughan who had made Indian fans angry by yet another tweet against the Indian team. © Reuters To the frustration of millions of Indian fans, play was abandoned without a ball bowled on the opening day of the WTC final.
However, Vaughan riled the Indian fans by tweeting that the Indian players should consider themselves lucky that the English weather came as a blessing in disguise for them and they could avoid  the humiliation. © Twitter/Kings XI Punjab Jaffer silenced him using a meme from Amir Khan-starrer Lagaan and reminded Vaughan that his home country England weren’t even good enough to make it to the final.
