'Resident Evil Village' Perfectly Blends Horror With Fun Gameplay & Is A Must-Play Game This Summer

If you ever wanted to experience a horror show from the front seat, Resident Evil 7 managed to deliver it with great scares. It was the first time players could experience a Resident Evil horror game from a first-person perspective that made the game extremely popular amongst fans. Now, developer Capcom tries to recapture that experience with Resident Evil Village (RE8).  The game builds on the same concepts as its predecessor with improvements in areas that I didn’t even know the game needed. While Resident Evil 7 was commended for its jump-scares and thrilling gameplay, the same cannot be said about Resident Evil Village. Not because there aren’t scary moments in the game, but because as a player I somehow got a bit used to it. Having said that, the game was still scary enough to get my heart racing.  © Capcom The game starts three years after the events of Resident Evil 7 in which Ethan Winters recovered his wife from the spine-ceiling Baker House. In case you haven’t played the game or need to refresh your memory, there is a short recap at the beginning of the game that gets you up to speed with the present day. Ethan and Mia are now living in Europe and now have a newborn daughter called Rose. The opening sequence of the game shows the family having a peaceful time in a countryside house while also trying to avoid their past experiences at the Baker House. 
© Capcom Just when you think you are comfortable, Chris Redfield barges into your house and kills Mia. Winters then abducts you and your child without giving any explanation. Soon after, the car that is transporting you overturns and Ethan wakes up at the side of the road with no sight of Chris or Mia. You then take control of Ethan and stumble through the creepy forest adjacent to a village. As you approach the village, you start seeing a cluster of eastern European style houses that seem to be abandoned. These houses are in a derelict condition signalling something catastrophic has taken place here. 
© Capcom As you start investigating these houses, you find yourself surrounded by weird and unpleasant noises. The village acts somewhat like a hub where Ethan will find his first two weapons i.e. a gun and a knife. Soon after, Ethan is ambushed by creatures that resemble werewolves who can break through wooden walls and floors to get you. You need to barge doors and shoot them through these walls in order to survive. While the opening hours of the game does leave you a bit spooked, you then realise that the game is more about telling a story rather than being just a horror game. Sure, the game still has a lot of jump scares, but it is also paired with a lot more fun gunplay than Resident Evil 7. 
© Capcom Once you’re done getting a few resources and weapons, you soon don’t feel so helpless as it gets easier to defeat lycans. Although it is worth pointing out that Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters are foreboding characters that play a larger role in the story and are the cause of the village’s fall. Sooner or later you will find yourself in Lady Dimitrescu’s castle after which the game’s semi-open world opens up. 
© Capcom The village and the surrounding area serves as a hub or a horror playground for you to venture out to look for your daughter. But here’s where the game gets a bit ridiculous and suspends the horror narrative a bit as you get introduced to whacky monsters. You will find yourself battling axe-wielding werewolves, vampires, a weird giant baby and so many other ridiculous monsters. 
To combat these monsters, Resident Evil Village has a more fluid combat system than the previous game. You will find plenty of weapons that you can use. However, upgrading weapons via a merchant called Duke served me better in the long run. Just like any shooter, upgrading guns help in improving accuracy, recoil control and increase ammo capacity. It kind of reminded me of survival mechanics from The Last of Us Part 2 albeit a bit more simplified. You can upgrade weapons and buy weapons using currency gathered from down enemies. Additionally, you can also buy food recipes in order to craft healing items that can come in handy in tight situations.  What makes Resident Evil Village more of an action game than horror is some of the in-game crafting items you can use to your advantage. You can craft items like mines or certain types of ammo that make it easier to gun down lycans and bigger enemies. You will have an arsenal of tools, weapons and items that will let you easily defeat your foes later on in the game. It somehow removes the traditional feeling of a survival horror game and is more akin to Resident Evil 4’s mechanics. Boss battles don’t really feel like a challenge especially if you’ve got enough resources in your inventory.  My only gripe with the game is how long it will take you to beat it. I managed to finish the game in about 12 hours. If the game had focused more on the horror elements rather than its action-adventure vibe, I would have still been happy. However, since it isn’t as scary as its predecessor, I would have liked to see more content in Resident Evil Village. The Visuals Are Breathtaking  © Capcom Resident Evil Village, on the PlayStation 5, looks gorgeous even with its gloomy atmosphere. I’ve been to Romania and even seen some villages that have been accurately represented in the game. Some locations are absolutely stunning to look at but my favourite location has to Dimitrescu’s Mansion. 
One can clearly notice the amount of time and effort Capcom has painstakingly put to create environments that will always be remembered. No matter which environment you look at, be it the dungeons, the snow or the inner-roads of the village, everything is a visual treat. The game runs at 60 frames per second with ray-tracing most of the time, however there are slight dips in frame rate when the screen gets a bit busy with many assets.  The Final Verdict Resident Evil Village despite its action-adventure vibe will still be a great experience for fans of the franchise. The game offers the perfect blend of horror and fun gameplay for fans who are looking to get lost in a survival horror game this summer. What’s great about Resident Evil Village is that even if you aren’t a fan of the horror genre, you'll have fun playing it. I highly recommend you to check out this game.

New Study Claiming That ‘Larger Noses Means Larger Penises’ Is Making Men Check Their Reflection

The internet can be a bizarre place. Although, not nearly as bizarre as the world of biological sciences.  If men having unfounded anxiety about their penises and their size wasn’t enough already, a study led by a group of Japanese scientists has come to the “conclusion” that men with larger noses, tend to have larger penises. © iStock “This study is the first to demonstrate the relationship between stretched penile length and nose size,” wrote researchers from the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine. © iStock So, basically, what the researchers did, was examine the recently deceased body of over 120 men, and measured their noses, and the length of their penises, among a plethora of their things. 
They discovered that men with snouts around 2.2-inch snouts packed larger penises that were longer than the world average of 5.2 inches.  © iStock On the other hand, cadavers, whose noses were shorter than 1.8 inches, stood at 4.1 inches. All those in between the two measurements were of average size.  
FYI, the average Japanese penile length is about 4.5 inches.  How did they get cadavers to go erect, is a question that is best left unanswered.  © iStock If this wasn’t hilarious enough, the concluding remarks of the study, definitely were. It read, “the reason why stretched penile length and nose size are related is still unclear” and that they needed live study subjects for a more detailed study. © iStock Twitter, meanwhile, had a field day with this “scientific” study.

Boss Who Paid Salaries In Cryptocurrency Demands It Back After Rise In Value, Gets Roasted

We all know about how horrible, certain bosses can be, especially if you’re a freelancer, working on a contractual basis.  Career experts always say that having a good boss is the most important blessing a potential employee can ask for.  © iStock Well, it seems that the internet has found out the Karen (or Ken, for that matter) of bosses.
A CEO of a tech start-up paid his freelance employees using cryptocurrency, back in August 2020.  However, now he’s demanding that his employees return the cryptocurrencies they received as salaries. The reason? The meteoric rise that cryptocurrencies have seen. © iStock All this came to light, when one of the employees, wrote into Marketwatch, a stock aggregating and financial news website, asking for advice, as to how to deal with the situation.
The employee in question, says that he did some business development work on a contract basis, in which he was told that he would be paid using crypto.  Once the job was done, he raised an invoice, and he was paid accordingly. © iStock Meanwhile, since he was paid, the value of this particular crypto (might be BitCoin or Ethereum) stands at 700 per cent of the amount that he was paid.
© iStock Seeing this, the CEO sent him an email, asking him to send back those bitcoins, and regenerate an invoice, only this time, he would be paid in American dollars. That’s not all, though. 
The CEO also stated that since the employee’s work did not generate revenue, nor did he perform any “complimentary follow-ups” he shouldn’t actually get paid at all and that the employee was lucky as the CEO was generous in paying him something for his “efforts.” © iStock If there ever was a classic Karen move, this was one of them, for sure.
Luckily, one of the financial experts came to the rescue, posting this on Twitter, and roasting the CEO.  He said that the CEO could be opening himself to a lawsuit, adding, "If the value of the cryptocurrency had fallen by 100% to zero since August 2020, would he want to pay you in dollars? A reader also chimed in saying "If the value decreased, would they be paying you the difference? My guess is - NO!" Another added, "It is an unconditional payment for a job done! Nobody can ask for it back.” "This is not the kind of employer you want to be working for," said another user. © iStock What do you guys make of it? Also, do you think it is a wise idea to pay employees using cryptocurrencies, or such incidents will only come up far too often? Let us know in the comments below.

Govt Warns Third Wave Of COVID Is Inevitable & Tired Indians Say ‘Pehle Thoda Saans Lene Do’

With an abject lack of a strong health infrastructure and people not taking precautions, it won’t be very surprising to witness India getting hit by the third wave of Coronavirus. 
K Vijay Raghavan, principal scientific advisor to India's government has already declared that the third wave of Covid-19 was inevitable looking at the current surge in infections. © Reuters “A phase three is inevitable, given the high levels of circulating virus, but it is not clear on what time scale this phase 3 will occur. Hopefully, incrementally, but we should prepare for new waves. Previous infections and vaccines will cause adaptive pressure on the virus for new kinds of changes which try to escape, and, therefore, we should be prepared, scientifically to take care of that,” he said in his recent statement.
When people got to know about the news regarding the probable third wave, they filled Twitter with their concerns through memes. © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter "The third surge in India which is around the corner according to experts will affect children. So when a child goes to the hospital, the mother and father will also have to go. That is why vaccination will have to be over for this group of people. we need to plan for this scientifically and thus make an arrangement," a Supreme Court bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud also added in his statement as quoted by Bar and Bench.
© Reuters If people keep continuing to be reckless and the health infrastructure continues to deteriorate, the third wave will be more dangerous.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday (May 5, 2021), India registered 382,315 fresh cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in the preceding 24 hours, pushing the nationwide infection tally past 20.66 million.

‘Protect Your Roots!’, Fans Left Surprised After ‘Serious Fella’ Joe Root Depants Stuart Broad

Joe Root is considered to be one of the most deadly and technically sound batsmen in the longest format of the game there is in today’s era of international cricket.  As a red-ball skipper for the England side, he has a sense of responsibility towards his country, his team and the millions of fans from all over the world. Such expectations that come with the job often restrict the person from casual banter or having fun with his teammates and friends on the field and may lead to the formation of a serious personality around the athlete. View this post on Instagram However, in a video recently shared by the official Twitter handle of England’s Barmy Army (the supporters of the English cricket team), Root can be seen doing something many would have never imagined him do - depants someone! In the hilarious footage, the batsman could be seen crouching up behind veteran pacer Stuart Broad, and pulling his pants down in one go.  Quickly realising what was happening to him, Broad managed to protect his “reputation” but not before the entire episode was caught on camera. #TBT to @root66 pulling a fast one on @StuartBroad8 🤣

@englandcricket pic.twitter.com/UCHGne521i — England's Barmy Army (@TheBarmyArmy) May 6, 2021 Pulling his pants up again, Broad began to chase his captain all over the ground but to the surprise of many, was unable to catch him, despite being one of the fastest cricketers in the team as of now. Strange, a serious fast bowler couldn't get a middle order batsman #RootRunsFasterThanBroad — ISH 🇻 KHANNA🇮🇳®©™ (@REAL_IK16) May 6, 2021haha and i thought a fast bowler would catch a kid! — Ishani.J (@ishani_5517J) May 6, 2021Some character this Root https://t.co/LA2vaZL0yN — Sabarish ARR (@me_sabarish7) May 6, 2021I thought aisi bakchodi sirf hum Indians karte the. https://t.co/sa9JfXKPs0 — Tejan Shrivastava (@BeingTeJan) May 6, 2021The last time Root came to India, for a four-match Test series, he looked in dominating form as he struck a masterful 218 in the first innings of the very first match at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai before the pitch woes began to get the better of the entire English squad and India ended up winning the series 3-1. Root will next be seen in action during the two-match Test series between England and New Zealand scheduled to start from June 2, 2021, with the first clash at the Lords’ cricket ground, followed by the second one at the Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham. Virat Kohli and the Men in Blue will be touring England for a five-match Test series in August and September later in the year.

Ram Gopal Varma Clarifies That Irrfan Wasn't In The Run For 'Daud' After Manoj Bajpayee's Video

The late star Irrfan Khan left us with some remarkable movies that will live on for ages to come.  The mega-talented actor gave some power-packed performances in movies like Angrezi Medium, Piku, The Lunchbox and Life of Pi, among others © Instagram/Babil Khan Recently, an old video of Manoj Bajpayee started doing rounds on the internet where he mentioned he was auditioning for a role in the movie Daud.  In this video, the actor mentioned that Vineet Kumar and Irrfan Khan were being considered for the role as well.  However, Ram Gopal Varma has now come forward to clarify that Irrfan wasn't a part of the race. © Twitter/Ram Gopal Varma The filmmaker took to his Twitter handle and unveiled that Irrfan never registered or auditioned for the movie.

I never registered Irrfan and I consciously remembered seeing him only much later when he came to the set of some other shoot.’ In an interview with YouTube channel Lallantop, back in 2018, Manoj said in the video "We were being considered for Paresh Rawal's right-hand role in the movie Daud. Kannan Iyer, who made Ek Thi Daayan, was assisting Shekhar Kapur in Bandit Queen. He was writing Daud movie for Ram Gopal Varma. Kannan told me 'Irrfan and Vineet have been asked to come, I am calling you as well, come. Ram Gopal Varma is giving the right-hand man role. He further added "But if he is impressed with you, he could give you a bigger role in his next movie.' I asked how much money will I make, he said, ₹35,000 for that role." He also said that he noticed Irrfan Khan and Vineet Kumar talking to Ram Gopal Varma, after which it was Manoj's turn. But eventually, it was him who bagged the role.  The movie also had Urmila Matondkar and Sanjay Dutt, for the lead roles. © Instagram/Babil Khan © Instagram/Babil Khan Irrfan Khan passed away last year on 29th April, after fighting cancer for two years. On his first anniversary, Babil took to Instagram to share a personal note and a picture of Irrfan.

Here’s How A Lucknow Girl Fell In Love With Boy From Netherlands After He Saved Her From Drowning

People find love in the most unimaginable places and that’s exactly what happened with this girl from Lucknow. Nupur Gupta and a boy from the Netherlands, Attila Bosnyak, met in Goa and fell in love. According to CNN Travel, the couple met in Goa in February 2019. Nupur was in Goa for a two-week period to teach Yoga. One day, in between her yoga practice she went for a swim in the ocean and didn’t know that the tide was too strong for swimming. © Instagram/Attilla She swam further away than usual and was caught amidst the strong waves and also felt that she was getting pulled into the ocean. She then tried to swim away but couldn’t reach the shore and was soon gasping for air. 
Then she saw a man coming towards her. It was Attila who tried to swim to her and grabbed her hand. He tried to pull her out of the ocean but wasn’t able to do that alone. © Instagram/Attila He then waved to the lifeguard and he swam along with Nupur and brought her to the shore.
When the two reached the beach, Nupur saw that Attila was bleeding from his back, thighs, and fingers. She said, “My heart sank when I saw that because it just made me realize that what this man just did to help someone, to help me.” Since then they both started meeting and kept on seeing each other for the time they were in Goa. They later also kept connected on WhatsApp and video calls and later decided to meet again.  © Instagram/Attila Then Attila arrived at the Delhi airport to meet Nupur and they traveled together to Lucknow, stopping at Agra to visit the Taj Mahal.
And in Agra, in front of Taj Mahal, Attila went down on one knee and proposed – not for marriage, but to be in a committed relationship and make it work. Nupur agreed. Later, both got married to each other in March 2020 in a small wedding in the Netherlands. © Instagram/Atilla What do you think of this love story? Let us know in the comments section below!

China Tells India To Let Their Companies Take Part In The 5G Trials After They Were Snubbed

Yesterday it was announced that 5G trials in India have commenced, however the Government did not grant permissions to Chinese companies for the same. Beijing has now expressed deep concerns over the move and said that it would not be "conducive to the innovation and development of related Indian industries." © Unsplash The Indian Department of Telecommunications granted approvals to a dozen companies to conduct six-month trials for 5G technology. Companies like Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Idea and MTNL were given permission to test equipment made by companies such as Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung and C-DOT.
Notably, Chinese telecommunications giants Huawei and ZTE who have been operating in India’s telecom sector for years were not part of the picture. In reaction to the move, Wang Xiaojian, spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in India, said in a statement that showed, “concern and regret that Chinese telecommunications companies have not been permitted to conduct 5G trials with Indian Telecom Service Providers in India.” “Relevant Chinese companies have been operating in India for years, providing mass job opportunities and making a contribution to India’s infrastructure construction in telecommunications,” Xiaojian said. “To exclude Chinese telecommunications companies from the trials will not only harm their legitimate rights and interests but also hinder the improvement of the Indian business environment, which is not conducive to the innovation and development of related Indian industries”. © Unsplash This is not the first time a country has left out Chinese players in the expansion of 5G networks. The US and UK have previously banned companies from using equipment from the two Chinese giants and many in India are demanding the same. Xiaojian said that China hopes that “India could do more to enhance mutual trust and cooperation between the two countries, and provide an open, fair, just, and non-discriminatory investment and business environment for market entities from all countries, including China, to operate and invest in India”.

‘How Did All This Happen?’, Sourav Ganguly Replies To Query About Failure Of IPL Bio-Bubble

On Wednesday, The Times of India reported a set of issues that the BCCI failed to look after while setting up the Bio-Bubble for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League and ended up with an arrangement which was inferior to what they had done last year while in the United Arab Emirates. IPL suspended for this season: Vice-President BCCI Rajeev Shukla to ANI#COVID19 pic.twitter.com/K6VBK0W0WA — ANI (@ANI) May 4, 2021 Basic issues such as ensuing quarantine for the hotel staff members and booking hotels closer to the practice venues to avoid unnecessary exposure to the virus were overlooked on more than one occasion. Evidently, the situation has gotten so difficult that the public has started demanding resignations from BCCI Secretary Jay Shah and even the beloved former Indian captain and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. The Indian Premier League Governing Council (IPL GC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an emergency meeting has unanimously decided to postpone IPL 2021 season, with immediate effect: BCCI pic.twitter.com/3NaN3qgJdt — ANI (@ANI) May 4, 2021 Justifying his accountability, here’s what Sourav Ganguly had to say about the complete failure of the bio-bubble and the eventual suspension of the Indian Premier League. "I don't think so [if the bio-bubble is breached]. The report we got is that there's no breach of the bubble. How it happened is very difficult to say. How so many people are getting (infected) in the country is also very difficult to say," Ganguly was quoted by The Indian Express. View this post on Instagram "Professional hands around the world can't control it (virus penetrating the bubble). When it was happening in England (the second wave of the pandemic), there were cases in the English Premier League. Manchester City, Arsenal players got infected," Ganguly said.  "(Premier League) Matches got rescheduled. Because their season is six months long, they can do it. But our season is tight. Since we have to (release) players to their respective countries, rescheduling was very difficult," Ganguly added. View this post on Instagram BCCI has finally stepped up to the crisis, deciding to help overseas players reach their homes, especially the Australian players who were banned from travelling back to their country until May 15. The Indian cricket board has arranged for chartered flights to help the Aussies reach the Maldives while dropping players from nations like New Zealand, South Africa, and the Caribbean to their respective destinations.

‘Battlegrounds Mobile India’ Will Be 'PUBG Mobile’s New Name And Here’s What We Know So Far

PUBG Mobile India will officially be called Battlegrounds Mobile India when it relaunches and it seems like we can start counting down the days. The battle royale game is expected to launch sometime soon once it gains permission from the Indian Government as Krafton has not released any new information about its relaunch.  However, the game company has started to update the logo on its official YouTube Channel where it takes cues from the Indian national flag. The company also updated its official Facebook and YouTube pages with the new name and removed all mention of PUBG Mobile from its social media handles and feed.  © Krafton Krafton has officially announced the rebranding of the game via a press release and said, “BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA, a battle royale experience, will have a period of pre-registration before the launch. The game will be available to play only in India. KRAFTON will collaborate with partners to build an esports ecosystem while bringing in-game content regularly, starting with a series of India specific in-game events at launch, to be announced later.”
Notable Industry stakeholders also took the opportunity on the announcement of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA to give their views. Mr Lokesh Suji, Director, Esports Federation of India & Vice President of the Asian Esports Federation (AESF) said "It's good to see that Krafton has considered the Indian requirements and has modified the game and this will surely fuel the Indian esports ecosystem. Krafton has been already taking positive initiatives in the Indian market in the last few months which is very heartening to see and also highlights the capability of the esports ecosystem in India.  However, hope Krafton has plugged all the necessary approvals to bring back this popular game. We request other game developers as well to follow a similar model and customise India specific games thereby create more value for the Indian esports community and encourage the local gamers & esports athletes to take this sport as a viable career option. As a federation, we have always supported and encouraged any initiative which has India at the core with the possibility to become a powerhouse in esports. We also urge and hope that Indian gaming developers will also follow suit and come up with more esports titles that will fuel and strengthen the esports ecosystem in India."
© Krafton It is currently unknown whether the game has been granted permission by the Indian Government, however the company said, “With privacy and data security being a top priority, KRAFTON will be working with partners, to ensure data protection and security, at each stage. This will ensure privacy rights are respected, and all data collection and storage will be in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in India and for players here” in a statement to IGN India. 
Krafton has now also updated its social network pages and YouTube channel with the rebranding and a teaser video. Though the teaser video does not say when the game is expected to launch and only puts an emphasis on the new logo.  PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year due to its partnership with Chinese games developer Tencent. The game was banned by the Indian Government on the grounds of national security and privacy. Krafton has now partnered with Microsoft to run its in-game servers and has recently made a donation of Rs 1.5 crore to the PM Cares fund to help battle the second wave of COVID-19 in India.  © Krafton Krafton also said the company will “collaborate with partners to build an esports ecosystem while bringing in-game content regularly, starting with a series of India specific in-game events at launch, to be announced later.”

Here’s Why Swara Bhasker Is Being Brutally Trolled Online & Tagged As Modern-Day ‘Manthra’

Just like Kangana Ranaut, Swara Bhasker is also known to voice her opinions and at times, her tweets too stir controversies. 
Meanwhile, Swara’s latest tweets have landed her in big trouble as she is being brutally trolled online and people are addressing her as the modern-day 'Manthra'.  For the unversed, Manthra was a character in Ramayana who was extremely wicked.  She convinced Queen Kaikeyi that the throne of the king belonged to her son Bharata and that her step-son Lord Rama should be exiled from the kingdom. In Swara’s case, she has been reprimanding the BJP government over the current scenario in the country.  From asking PM Narendra Modi to resign to calling BJP members 'murderers' and even give it back to BJP Spokesperson Nighat Abbass, Swara has offended many people from the ruling dispensation of late. Here are the tweets by Swara Bhasker: © Swara Bhasker Twitter © Swara Bhasker Twitter © Swara Bhasker Twitter And this is why people have been calling her the modern-day 'Manthra'. 
While some people have been bashing her and asking her to focus more on her acting career, others have even asked people to report her account. Here are the reactions: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter Just recently, Swara reacted to Kangana Ranaut’s account being suspended and also shared about a fashion house terminating all ties with Kangana. 
The actor wrote, "Pleasantly surprised to see this! Kudos to you @AnandBhushan & #RimzimDadu for calling out hate speech and incitement to genocide in a direct manner! Stand tall you guys!" On the work front, Swara Bhasker was shooting for her upcoming film, Jahaan Chaar Yaar, whose shoot has now been stalled.  According to the official synopsis, Jahaan Chaar Yaar, helmed by Kamal Pandey, follows the story of four friends trapped in a rut of hapless monotony.  With grown-up kids and distant husbands, their middle-class lives have nothing to look forward to until a chance vacation in Goa.  The getaway turns into a thrilling roller coaster they never bargained for. The film will chronicle the journey of these four friends who go from being demure housewives into daring dames.

Here’s The First Look From ‘House Of The Dragon’ & We Can't Wait For It To Release

It’s time for Game of Thrones fans to get excited as HBO has finally released images from House of the Dragon. House of the Dragon, is a prequel to GOT which is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood and is set 300 years before GOT.  The show revolves around the story of House of Targaryen and one of the pictures which have been released showcases Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Emma D'Arcy and Matt Smith.  In the first picture, you can see both the characters in the same bright blonde hair, very similar to their descendant, Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen.  Check out the first picture here- © HBO HBO in a statement described the new characters in the picture as, “Rhaenyra Targaryen: The king’s first-born child, she is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragon rider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything… but she was not born a man."
“Daemon Targaryen: The younger brother to King Viserys and heir to the throne. A peerless warrior and a dragon rider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air." © HBO In the second image, we can see Olivia Cook and Rhys Ifans who play Otto Hightower and his daughter Alicent Hightower respectively. In the show, Otto is the Hand of the King to the present ruler in the power of Westeros, King Viserys Targaryen.
According to HBO’s statement, “Ser Otto loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king's brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne." The description also said, “Alicent is the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms. She was raised in the Red Keep, in King's Landing, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen." © HBO In this image, we can see Steve Toussaint who is playing the role of Lord Corlys of House Velaryon, known as the Sea Snake. Corlys and his whole family are said to be from a Valyrian bloodline as old as House Targaryen.
"As 'The Sea Snake,' the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros, Lord Corlys built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world," says the description. The show is said to release in the year 2022 on HBO Max and we are already excited. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!

‘What A Gem!’, Dhoni’s Brave Sacrifice For Foreign Teammates Amid Covid Crisis Has Fans In Awe

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been known as one of the best captains and leaders the Indian cricket team has had the honour of playing and functioning under in the history of the sport in this country. But from time to time, the guy does something so special that the fans can’t help to be in absolute awe of him and the character he shows on and off the field. #IPL2021 #MSDhoni #CSK

In a virtual meeting with his teammates, @msdhoni said that since the IPL is happening in India, the foreign players and support staff should get the preference to travel first to reach their homes abroad.

✍️ @pdevendrahttps://t.co/IjF1GKozDZ — Express Sports (@IExpressSports) May 6, 2021In a conversation with The Indian Express, a member of the Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings franchise revealed that the skipper had delayed his own journey back home to Ranchi and wanted to wait until each and every member of his squad (cricketers and the support staff), managed to find a way back home, including the overseas personnel. “Mahibhai said that he will be the last person to leave the hotel. He wanted foreigners to leave first, then the Indian players. He will be taking the last flight tomorrow when everyone reaches their home safe and secure,” the CSK member said. Even after #IPL2021 suspension, #Dhoni proved he is the Captain off the field too..

He said he would be the last person to leave and wanted overseas players return first and then other domestic players..

He is still #Delhi hotel making sure, other players travel arrangement! — Ramesh Bala (@rameshlaus) May 6, 2021 Dhoni fans, who were eagerly waiting for their idol’s return to form after the CSK made an incredible bounce-back to the top of the tournament, had even more admiration and respected for him after learning about what he is doing at the moment:  The captain of all captains — pEacE️ bRo (@Vishwas85291515) May 6, 2021That's the man @msdhoni — Santhosh Gandhasiri (@sunny_Nithin_AA) May 6, 2021That's the Man️@msdhoni #ipl2021 — Âbî Âjîth (@AbiAjith75) May 6, 2021@msdhoni Aree Maahi bhai️️️️...
Ek hi to dil hai kitte baar jeetenge...️️️️️️️️️..
God bless you Maahi Bhai.....
Bss aapko hmesa Ground me khelte hue dekhte rahe... — Dev Das (@DevDas63474456) May 6, 2021That's our Thala for a reason — धोनी भक्त (@prathamkhokharr) May 6, 2021CSK organised chartered flights for their players to Rajkot and Mumbai while another evening flight picked players from Bengaluru and Chennai. Dhoni will be flying back to Ranchi on Thursday, according to the current schedule.  On Tuesday, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal had said, “We stand by our word that for us, the IPL is not complete until our players and officials reach their homes safe and secure. We are working on that and will come out with a detailed plan in two days.”  The Indian cricket board has already made arrangements to transport the Australian members of the IPL community including players, coaching staff and the commentators to the Maldives where they will be in at least a three-day quarantine before being allowed to return to their country.  Aussie commentator Michael Slater had already made his way to the archipelagic state last week after his government had taken away every Australian citizen’s right to come back home (who has been in India) until May 15th.   Slater has been extremely critical of this precautionary measure and has expressed his dissent towards his Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Twitter a number of times.  Amazing to smoke out the PM on a matter that is a human crisis. The panic, the fear of every Australian in India is real!! How about you take your private jet and come and witness dead bodies on the street! — Michael Slater (@mj_slats) May 5, 2021 “Amazing to smoke out the PM on a matter that is a human crisis. The panic, the fear of every Australian in India is real!! How about you take your private jet and come and witness dead bodies on the street!” the former cricketer wrote in his latest jab.

Meet Vivek Ranadive, Who Left Mumbai With $50 In His Pocket But Returned As An NBA Team Owner

Passion and the stubbornness to become successful will help you achieve the kind of things you thought you were incapable of.  The financially mediocre family that you were born in, the limitations levied on you by the place where you grew up and the people who told you that you would not be good enough to meet your goals, all that feels no more than a pinch on your arm when you look back at the journey in life that you have completed having reached your destination.  61-year-old Vivek Ranadive, a Mumbai-born, grew up in the streets of Juhu and in an environment in which people expected nothing but the best from him. The youngest of the three children in the family, Vivek was nothing short of a genius who got a call from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) when he was only 16 and started his first company, a UNIX consulting company during his time there. Eternally grateful to @MIT for fulfilling my childhood dream. #tbt pic.twitter.com/jp6leaX6eR — Vivek Ranadivé (@Vivek) April 19, 2018 With bachelor's and master's degrees from MIT, Ranadive finished his MBA from Harvard University and went on to become the founder of TIBCO, a billion-dollar real-time computing company.  “The way I was raised was that if you came second, you were a loser,” Ranadive had said a couple of days ago in a conference. “My hatred for failure is greater than my love for success.” But owning a billion-dollar company was never the end goal for the Mumbaikar. For someone who always wanted to become a major part of the basketball culture of the USA, Ranadive decided to buy shares of the National Basketball Association (NBA) team, the Golden State Warriors (GSW). In 2010, he not only became the vice-chairman of the franchise but also the first person of Indian descent to co-own an NBA team.  In 2013, he sold his GSW shares and purchased 65% of the shares of the Sacramento Kings for approximately $348 million.  #KingsAllDay RT @cnbcsocial: New @SacramentoKings owner Vivek Ranadive on @CNBC sporting a Kings cap: pic.twitter.com/ztFn4UjG6B — Sacramento Kings (@SacramentoKings) May 29, 2013 The elite businessman often sees the term 'philanthropist' added ahead of his name. “This will sound corny, but when I wake up, the first thought I have is, 'What can I do to make a difference and make the world better?'” he'd said back in 2019 when he was here in India. So he decided to bring the game he loves so dearly back to his country, better yet, his city.  On 4th and 5th October 2019, Ranadive's Sacramento Kings played against Indiana Pacers in the first-ever NBA India Games in Mumbai in what turned out to be a great success, indicating a successful future for the sport in the country.  View this post on Instagram When glam meets game! #NBAIndiaGames (Repost @Pacers) • • • • • • 👋 @PriyankaChopra! #NBAIndiaGames A post shared by NBA India (@nbaindia) on Oct 3, 2019 at 8:57am PDT “I left Bombay (Mumbai) when I was 17 years old and literally I had $50 in my pocket. So to come back here with my NBA team… to play an actual NBA game is beyond my wildest imagination,” he said in a press conference ahead of the first game.  In a conversation with MensXP, Ranadive spoke about the responsibilities that came about as the owner of such a major organisation and a global franchise.  “One of the first things that you discover when you buy a professional sports team is that you actually don't own the team. It belongs to the fans, it belongs to the city, even the media. We (Sacramento Kings) are committed to using our platform for impacting our community. When I bought the team, I laid out a mission statement which was to build a winning franchise that enhances the lives of those it touches and makes the world a better place,” he said.  Ranadive is using this platform to indeed make his birth city a better place, especially for the younger generations. Alongside NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and NBA India Managing Director Rajesh Sethi, the Kings owner has laid the foundation for 'Legacy Project' at the grassroots level of sports and education in Mumbai, in which they will be supporting five under-resourced Municipal schools in Mumbai with technology equipment, trained teachers, a basketball court, and improved infrastructure capacities. “These kids are way smarter than me when I was their age,” Ranadive said at the plowing ceremony of the 'Legacy Project' on Sunday. “I have no doubt that those kids will be way more successful that I have been," he added. View this post on Instagram Reshaping the next generation with the NBA Legacy Project! #NBAIndiaGames @AIFoundation A post shared by NBA India (@nbaindia) on Oct 6, 2019 at 1:07am PDT “Indians have two natural resources. They have the ability to work hard and the second is that they have imagination. Those two resources, hard work, and imagination are the most important to succeed in the next century," Ranadive said. His work speaks for him. A self-made man who has seen the two extremes of the world when it comes to money, Vivek Ranadive is all about building an empire, sure, but he also wishes to put the society on his shoulders and run towards excellence.

Mumbai Indians’ Super Expensive Way For Overseas Players’ Safety Earns Fans Respect Even More

The Indian Premier League has come to an abrupt pause with the numbers of COVID-19 cases on the rise at a nerve wracking rate in the country and the bio-bubble provided by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) deemed unsafe after various players were tested positive despite strict protocol. Under such circumstances, while the Indian players did not find it difficult to return to their homes in less than a day’s time, it was the overseas players who found themselves in the middle of a very peculiar predicament. After nine straight days of 300,000+ Covid cases daily, India has now moved 400,00+. The US has banned travel from India; Australia will jail for 5 years if someone arrives from India. Only 7million had gone to Haridwar's Kumbh Mela in Apil to take a dip in the Ganges. — Ashok Swain (@ashoswai) May 1, 2021 International players, especially the Australian athletes experienced exodus after their own government banned them from returning home within 14 days of being in India.  The lack of direct flights to other countries at the time of the most devastating COVID-19 wave this world has ever seen, also made it significantly tough for the athletes, commentators and coaching staff members to travel back home. Cricket Australia CEO: been working with BCCI/IPL to repatriate plyrs, suppt staff, umpires, commentators "as quickly and safely as possible" out of India.

Range of options: Maldives or Sri Lanka — Peter Lalor (@plalor) May 5, 2021 On Wednesday, the BCCI confirmed that they are trying their best to help out the overseas stars and had planned to transport them to either Sri Lanka or the Maldives where they can undergo the 14-day mandatory quarantine tenure before taking a flight to their country. It was at this point that the most successful franchise in the history of the league, the Mumbai Indians stepped up and lived up to their name and volunteered to offer multiple chartered planes flying to the nations such as New Zealand, South Africa and the Carribean in order to help their players reach their families safely. According to Cricbuzz, Mumbai Indians are sending their overseas players via Chartered plane and they also offered other franchise players to join them. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 5, 2021 The five-time champions have also extended their invite to the rest of the seven franchises of the league to have their players get a spot on these chartered planes and travel with the rest of the contingents in peace. However, since the Mumbai Indians do not have any England cricketers in their roster, no chartered flights are being directed towards the United Kingdom as of now. “Following the postponement of IPL 2021, we are in close contact with our players and staff in India as arrangements are put in place for them to return home safely. The ECB understands the BCCI’s decision to postpone the competition for the safety and wellbeing of those involved, and thanks the BCCI for its commitment to do everything in its powers to arrange for the secure and safe passage of all those taking part in the competition. Our thoughts remain with the people of India during these challenging times,” the England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement.

Ravindra Jadeja’s Reply As Harsha Bhogle Calls Him ‘Sir’ Has Zero Impact On His Die-Hard Fans

While the Indian Premier League has come to an abrupt halt due to a sudden surge in positive COVID-19 cases within the BCCI bio-bubble, one player who managed to leave a massive impact, at least in the first half of the tournament, was Ravindra Jadeja. Returning to the field after a severe thumb injury during India’s tour of Australia back in January 2021, the Chennai Super Kings all-rounder has been ‘The Man’ of the hour. View this post on Instagram Even though he is not a leading name in the orange or purple cap race, his presence on the field, while batting, bowling or even fielding has the opposing team sweating and extra cautious around him and they have their reasons. On Monday, the ‘Voice of Indian Cricket’ Harsha Bhogle spoke about the brilliance of Jadeja in IPL 2021 and in complimenting him on his evolution as a cricketer, Bhogle ended up calling him ‘Sir Jadeja’ an informal title presented to him by his fans with love and affection. The Voice of Cricket, @bhogleharsha, believes @imjadeja has been a standout All-Rounder in the tournament so far. Who do you think is the #AboveTheNoisePerformer when it comes to all-around abilities? #AboveTheNoise #CricbuzzPlus #harshaBhogle #RavindraJadeja #IPLT20 pic.twitter.com/jnKwwdBFQd — Cricbuzz (@cricbuzz) May 3, 2021 “The all-round performance of the season; there can only be one, and that is Sir Jadeja himself. He hits 37 off the last over, he then picks 3/13 including the wickets of Maxwell and AB, has a direct hit. One person doing that (is) inconceivable. If there is a better performance than this in this season, I want to be there, bang in the middle watching it happen,” he said on Cricbuzz. Rarely the one to reply to such issues, Jadeja made an exception this time around and while thanking Bhogle for his thoughts, requested that he’d be happier if he’d be called by his original name. Thanks a lot @bhogleharsha but i will be more happy if you call me Ravindra Jadeja — Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) May 3, 2021 Without a thought, Bhogle obliged and wished him well for the future. Done. Aise hi khelte raho. Cheers. 🏽 — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 3, 2021And even though Harsha Bhogle agreed to not call him ‘sir’ anymore, Jadeja’s request had little to no impact on his dedicated fans who remain adamant that the title suits him well and that they will continue to call him by it: That will be a disrespect to you sir . You're 'SIR RAVINDRA JADEJA' for the world . — ηαмαη - CSK (@Mr_unknown23_) May 3, 2021But you deserve and its suites you also Sir @imjadeja bow to you master pic.twitter.com/ONyoHZIaVF — Cyclone (@Cyclone33473522) May 3, 2021Sir Ravindra Jadeja

That's it that's the reply — INTROVERT (@kafan_chorr183) May 3, 2021Pehle toh sir ka prefix was a satire, now it's with the utmost respect to your abilities!
How about @ShaneWarne 's Nick name, the Rockstar !? ️ — lalit_pnl (@lalitp_3) May 3, 2021Now you r sir jadeja, not jadeja. We have proud on youu @imjadeja — Deependra Rathore (@Deepend94145691) May 5, 2021

Unique COVID Awareness Message In Goa With The Word F*** Leaves Twitter Stunned & So Are We

People are finding new ways to call on people to remind them about the importance of staying home and social distancing in the second wave of Covid.  Recently, a small beach village in North Goa, Calangute, was seen spreading Covid-19 awareness in a rather unique manner. While one could see the efforts with public announcements, it was rather laced with some F bombs. The announcement urged people to stay put in their homes with a very catchy jingle. © Instagram/Goaexplore In the video, one can hear an announcement being made with a loudspeaker in a vehicle, decked with Covid-related information. 
The announcer can be heard singing a unique jingle, saying: “Please help the world get back on track and stay the f**k at home. Stay the f**k at home… Don’t you be a f*****g d**k, stay the f**k at home,” As soon as this video went live on social media, people couldn't help but react to it.  There were mixed reactions, as some people expressed their excitement, while a few were rather surprised.  One user wrote, “It’s Goa”. Musician Jason Filipe, replied to it and said “The village panchayat of Calangute slapping some sense into people.” Another social media user wrote “Meanwhile in Goa… The village panchayat (governing body) of Calangute does not mince words. This is how we do it…stay the f#*k at home,” However, after all this, the official Calangute village panchayat came forward and mentioned that the driver has apologised for such behaviour. Due to the rising cases, Goa is now under lockdown too to control the spread of Covid-19. Calangute, especially, has gone under self-imposed lockdown, even though the state-wide lockdown concluded on Monday. Here's how the people are reacting to the jingle:  Is that what they were actually playing??? — Alysha Maria Lobo (@alysha_lobo) May 2, 2021Village panchayat of Calangute woke up today and chose violence. #Goa pic.twitter.com/i8y8wvRyRY — That Goan Guy (@schmmuck) May 2, 2021Here is the original song :)https://t.co/p3SEaBlx5M — berty ashley (@bertyashley) May 3, 2021We need Hindi version of this for Hindi heartlands.🤣🤣🤣 — thkr@161 (@thkr161) May 3, 2021Titled "G**ND na marayie aur Ghar pe baithiye" — Pravesh (@pravesh_shukla2) May 3, 2021 Should adopt this across states .. but rest assured no one can pull it off like Goa ! — Rachana Nair (@noirbedazzling) May 3, 2021hahhahhahahah thats the only language people understand so good — Mugdha Deshmukh (@ThatGirlIn30s) May 3, 2021

Will Smith Says He's In 'Worst Shape Of His Life’ In The Pandemic & We Couldn’t Relate More

We have been shut in our houses for over a year now.  More than that, another constant worry has been the weight gain, which we simply succumbed to due to constant binge-watching on Netflix.  The concern is real, not just for us but even for celebrities. © Instagram/Will Smith Will Smith recently took to Instagram and posted a shirtless photo, giving a solid reason as to why he is in the 'worst shape of his life'.
View this post on Instagram He shared another image and was seen joking about his physique a few days ago as well. The recent post though, explains the reason behind his weight gain and we guess we can totally relate to it.
For this new post, he posted a short video, wearing black boxers and captioned it as "This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry. He further wrote, "I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins...this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!! Teaming up with @YouTube to get my health & wellness back on track. Hope it works!" He is Will Smith and if he has mentioned that he would work hard, keeping away from the midnight muffins, he would definitely nail it. That's one inspiring post, we must say. Just a few days ago, he had also posted another picture wearing a colour-block jacket and boxers. In this image too, he can be seen 'out of shape'. © Instagram/Will Smith To be honest, this is quite relatable, since that's exactly what we did a year long. And, given that he has done several roles in the past, that required him to either lose or gain weight, this won't be a huge task for him.
He shared the image, flaunting his dad bod and wrote "I'm gonna be real wit yall - I'm in the worst shape of my life." © Instagram/Will Smith The picture received a lot of reactions from his fans globally including some celebs like, Michele Moorer, DJ Steve Aoki, Joel Kinnaman, Ava DuVernay etc. 
People came in support, as British singer-songwriter Sonna Rele wrote "You’re Will Smith!! You can be in whatever shape you want,” Even YouTuber Casey Neistat wrote "You’re a real one for this,” Is this post relatable to you as well? Let us know!

The most disturbing part is that even music was being played by a DJ who was accompanying the women. The protocols of wearing masks and keeping social distancing were brutally breached in the public domain. However, the police have now taken action against 23 people in Navapura village, including the village sarpanch. © Reuters Meanwhile, in the last 24 hours, India reported over 3.82 lakh new cases of the novel coronavirus taking the total tally of cases in the country to over 2.06 crores which is a scary number.
It’s sad that these people didn’t take any lessons after many devotees who returned from Kumbh Mela were tested positive. About 2,600 devotees tested positive out of the nearly two lakh tests conducted by medical personnel during the mela. MensXP urges everyone to stay home and stay safe because it’s a luxury that many can’t afford.

Govinda Tucked In His Formal Shirt Into His Joggers With Belt In A Gangster-Like Style Move

There are a few colour combinations that are best avoided for a number of reasons. For example, unless it is a uniform, it is best if one avoids wearing white on white.  © Viral Bhayani Unless of course, you’re Govinda and in that case, the rules really don’t apply to you, for you have made a space for yourself that warrants that.  
You think Ranveer & Aparshkati push the sartorial envelope? Well, you clearly don’t know Govinda. © Viral Bhayani Recently, the actor was spotted at the Mumbai Airport, in an outfit that only Govind can pull off with style. 
Govinda was seen dressed in a white dress shirt, a pair of white sneakers, and surprisingly, a pair of white joggers. Yup, he wore a pair of white coloured joggers, with his 'suit'. © Viral Bhayani But more on that later. First, let’s have a look at the rest of his outfit.
Govinda’s all-white outfit was paired with a dope looking blazer, which made the outfit pop and stand distinctly apart.  We also like the fact that Govinda used a brown leather belt as an accessory. It goes rather well with the rest of his outfit and manages to stand out on its own. © Viral Bhayani Then, there are the chunky-looking sunglasses that he’s wearing. 
They look straight out of a film from the 1980s and have a very cool, retro vibe to them. If you come to think of it, the entire outfit has somewhat of a 1980s vibe to it.  © Viral Bhayani Except for the fitting of the pants, and those sneakers.
Look closely at the hem of the trousers, and you’ll realise, these are actually joggers. They have tiny zippers near the ankle. One can even see the closed portions of the zippers.  © Viral Bhayani And then, there are the coke white sneakers that Govinda’s wearing. They, again, are very cool and are in a league of their own. They actually complement the rest of the outfit in a very aesthetic, and dope-looking manner.  © Viral Bhayani All in all, this is actually quite a gangster-move by Govinda, style-wise speaking. We for sure, are loving it. Is it any wonder, that he still is one of the most revered style icons in India, even today?
