I have been selling products on eBay and making money at it. I would like to upload more of our inventory to eBay but it is very time consuming to upload one at a time and then even more so to keep it updated. If I sell something on eBay but I am actually sold out, I have to cancel the order and that sometimes results in negative feedback and eBay lowers my DSR. Does that sound like you?
Actor Rajkummar Rao has been floating on cloud nine post the release of his movie ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and why not?

The movie will be directed by Atul Manjrekar and will also have actor Anil Kapoor in the lead. Rao is currently busy filming Hansal Mehta’s biographical series ‘Bose’ in Poland and is apparently excited to share screen space with Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Talking about the film’s leading lady, Rao said, “She’s the most beautiful woman in the world. It’s a great story, there’s a lot of love, and the content is not just entertaining but is detailed and different. There will be lots of workshops and readings once I am back.”
‘Fanney Khan’ narrates the relationship between a father and his 16-year-old daughter who wants to become a singer. Anil Kapoor has been roped in for the father’s role and we are really excited to see on screen with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after a long hiatus of 17 years. The actors were last seen together in ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai’. The movie is being said to be the Hindi adaptation of Dominique Deruddere’s 2000 hit ‘Everybody’s Famous!’ and will hit theatres in September 2017.
After a long hiatus, Saif Ali Khan will finally be seen shining on the silver screen. His ‘chef’ avatar was loved by everyone back in ‘Salaam Namaste’, remember? The Pataudi royal is ready to impress the audience with the official remake of ‘Chef’. He’s of course, playing the titular role. The movie tells the story of a fancy chef who is desperately trying to strike a balance between his professional and personal life.

Saif is essaying the role of Roshan Kalra , a celebrity chef whose professional commitments have taken a toll on his personal life. Padmapriya is playing the role of his wife, Radha, who is constantly asking him to spend time with his son. The trailer shows the fun food trail that the father-son duo take in order to spend more time with each other.

Eventually he quits his job and opens his own food truck to be closer to home, and above all, to be there for his son.
The movie was initially scheduled to be released in July but has been shifted to be released on October 6th. Saif was last seen in ‘Rangoon’ opposite Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor. The original ‘Chef’ has John Favreau play the lead role and the movie is in fact also written by him. The movie was a hit and struck a chord with the audience. Saif definitely looks promising as a confused father.

It was 1975, a time when they say India fought for its second independence. It was a time of turmoil, a tile where destinies could be made or destroyed, and fortunes stolen or lost. A time when power was absolute. In a time like that, the quasi-government went after royal families all over the country especially in Rajasthan, claiming that they had not declared their wealth in 1971 when the privy purses were abolished. It claimed that several crores worth of antiques, gold, jewellery and treasures were concealed by the royals. Most of these raids were conducted in Rajasthan, and Baadshaho is the story of one such raid.
Giranjali, the unlikely princess, alien to her land, alien to its habits and its needs, was unceremoniously arrested and thrown into jail by the powers that be. As her palace was being looted, her only hope was Bhawani Singh, who she knew could stop her treasure from being taken away.
Bhawani recruits a team of badasses like himself; Daliya –a hopeless, slippery flirt who everybody knows and who knows everybody, who sleeps in brothels and wakes up on the stress. In fact was even born on them. But he is loyal only to Bhawani.
Tikla AKA Guruji; is the quintessential wizened old man, a booze- guzzling, wisecracking locksmith whose fingers are sharper than knives. The sexy but stoic Sanjana, a loyalist to Gitanjali joins them, and their mission commences: to stop Gitanjali’s gold from being taken away by an elite army led by the joint smoking Major Seher Singh.
They have 96 hours; and the distance is 600 kms of open desert. The odds are heavily stacked against then. But are there the real odds? Or will interpersonal rivalries, political jealousies, royal secrets, human deceit and the unforgiving desert become the forces they will have to overcome…
As each of their moral fibres, badass reserves, and street smart survival instincts are tests, the 6 characters hurtle towards a sandstorm that could either destroy everything, or sweep it all clean.
Netflix has been in the news since the day they decided to step in India. Although initially viewers complained about the lack of content available on the world-famous platform, Netflix eventually stepped up its game. With more and more original content being made available, viewers are increasingly attracted to sign up and enjoy seamless streaming, without the hassle of torrents.
Apart from original content, the movie section boasts of a lot of different categories- from romance to drama, documentaries to sci-fi; you are bound to find something worthy of your time and interest. So, if sifting and browsing through thousands of movies is too tiring for you, allow us to give you some recommendations which will definitely keep you on the edge of your seats (or in this case, your bed).
1. Death Note
If you are a Japanese manga fan, then you must have heard of the Death Note series. In case you are not familiar with the story, Death Note is a fantasy, thriller film based on the Japanese manga.
A Netflix original, the story of the movie revolves around a student, Light Turner who one day, stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name is written in it. A deadly game of cat and mouse begins when a determined detective named L begins to track him down, attempting to end his reign of terror once and for all.
2. The Shining
This one is a classic thriller. Directed by the legendary Stanley Kubrick, who took each maddening piece of this Stephen King’s iconic story, which sees a writer and his family taking care of a very special hotel and developed it into a masterpiece. Dead twins, blood-spewing elevators, the mysterious Room 237 and a garden maze- The Shining is a film that manages to scare the hell out of its audiences.
Netflix describes the plot of this movie as, “A deaf writer who retreated into the woods to live a solitary life must fight for her life in silence when a masked killer appears at her window.”
A simple plot but a clever take on the ‘Home-Invasion’ sub genre, this movie involves great acting, wicked execution and a lot of nail biting moments.
4. Shutter Island
Leonardo DiCaprio fans, this one’s for you. Some consider ‘Shutter Island’ as one of his best works and one of the best psychological thrillers ever made. The movie is set in 1954, when U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo) is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. But things start to go haywire as soon he begins his investigation. The extraordinary acting, suspense and just the right amount of clues, this movie will keep you guessing till the end.
This is the perfect combination of horror and thriller. The movie revolves around a young female embezzler, who after stealing a lot of cash from a man whom her boss is in business with, arrives at the Bates Motel, which has bewildering secrets of its own.
The movie was filmed in 1960s and is bound to take you back in time with its realism. Great characters, fantastic direction and music; make this one a classic.
6. Let Me In
First things first, ‘Let Me’ In involves a character who is a vampire. But that doesn’t make this movie any less good as calling this film a “vampire movie” doesn’t really do it justice. It tells the story of a bullied 12-year-old boy who befriends his female neighbor whose life itself is a mystery. The movie is an adaptation of the 2008 Swedish film ‘Let the Right One In’.
The movie is part thriller, part drama, part love story, and yet it manages to be extremely captivating.
‘Dangal’ actor Aamir Khan is known to be a perfectionist who believes to thrive only for the best, but what many people don’t know is that he also a philanthropist who has made innumerable contributions to provide aid to those in need and for the betterment of the society. Earlier this month, he donated a sum of Rs. 25 Lakh to help the flood victims in Assam and Gujarat. In fact, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal even thanked Aamir Khan for his contribution on Twitter.
Thank you @aamir_khan for contributing Rs 25 Lakh towards Assam Chief Minister’s Relief Fund through Aamir Khan Productions Pvt. Ltd.

In fact, during the Gujarat and Assam floods, the actor took to Twitter and urged his fans to help the flood victims by donating money to the Chief Minister relief funds of both the states.
Once again, the actor has proved that he is not someone who will hold himself back from fulfilling his responsibility towards the society and his generosity is winning hearts across the country. Aamir Khan has donated Rs. 25 Lakh to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for Bihar flood victims for smoother relief operations. Reportedly, a cheque of Rs. 25 Lakh was sent by Aamir Khan Production Private Limited through a courier and was received at the office of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Apart from the actor, BJP MP Dr. C.P. Thakur too reportedly donated Rs. 20 lakh from his MPLAD (Members of Parliament Local Area Development) fund for rebuilding infrastructure in the flood-affected regions of Muzaffarpur. Having said that, reports state that so far over one crore seventy lakh people have been affected by the floods in Bihar and the death toll has already crossed 500.
Actress Kangana Ranaut, who got involved in a legal battle with Hrithik Roshan last year, says their fight is still not over as she deserves an apology from the actor and his father Rakesh Roshan.
Kangana opened up on the controversy once again on CNN-News18’s show “Now Showing”, read a statement by the channel.
The actress says the senior Roshan had tried to fix a meeting between her and Hrithik, but that is yet to happen.
“I’m still waiting to meet him face-to-face and exchange two words on this and sort this out, but he’s been running and hiding from me,” Kangana said.
“He (Hrithik) and his father have made fools of themselves, they should apologise to me in public. Even if they don’t, I will clarify to the world what happened to the case. The case has not died down. They couldn’t prove anything,” she added.
Issues between the two began when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her “ex-boyfriend” when she said in an interview that she fails to understand “why exes do silly things to get your attention”. The actress lodged a legal complaint against Hrithik for “misusing” the confidential emails and photographs of the time when they were together.
Hrithik later filed a complaint with the cybercrime cell, claiming an imposter had been emailing Kangana from a bogus email ID, pretending to be him.
“For me it’s important that he (Hrithik) claimed many things, but couldn’t prove anything. You can’t go about slapping notices on people. He had been preparing all this for two years. He used to send himself emails from my account because he had my password,” Kangana said.
“I stayed quiet till now because I needed time to understand what all they (Roshan family) were doing… Of course it was all lies, but I didn’t know what they would do next. I was scared. Look at what happened to the Malayalam actress because she went and complained to the actor’s wife.
“They got her raped… Of course that was much after my case, but I was scared. So many things happen to women. The media would call me, or my sister and say, ‘You are not safe… You guys should move to a safe place or go in hiding’.”
Without naming anyone, Kangana said she used to get calls from people from the industry who told her, “You should apologise, they are powerful people.”
“He (Hrithik) and his father claimed they would expose me and shock the world, but they couldn’t prove anything. He (Hrithik) slapped a notice saying she caused great harm to my reputation because she called me a ‘silly ex’… I am the silly ex. But, he couldn’t prove it. So, he changed his stance and said… She’s right, she had an affair, but that wasn’t me, it was an imposter. But, he couldn’t prove that also,” Kangana said.
The show featuring the “Queen” actress will be aired later on Thursday.

We all know actress Jaya Bachchan is very outspoken and has lost her cool many a times in front of public and media.
A family friend reveals that Jaya’s sharp tongue can sometimes become a matter of embarrassment for the Bachchan family. Whereas, Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are known for their diplomacy and presence of mind.
In an event, some excited photographers referred to her bahu as ‘Ash’. Jaya got pretty miffed with it and said, “Is she your friend?”
As per an entertainment website, the incident happened when Jaya and Aish were met by a group of photographers who called out to Aishwarya to pose for them. But what they got was a tongue-lashing from Jaya.’
Jaya turned around and reportedly said, “Kya Aishwarya Aishwarya bula rahe ho, tumhare class mein padhti thi kya?” Later, Aishwarya could be seen spotting a poker face throughout the event and the two left immediately.
Recently, in Esha Deol’s Godh Bharai ceremony, a similar incident happened. The priest at the ceremony got carried away and started taking selfies with star guests.
Considered to be very close to Esha Deol, this upset Jaya and she snapped at the priest saying, “Please focus on your prayers.” She is known for not tolerating any kind of nonsense and has often been seen snapping at people, even at the cost of her family’s image.
