A lot of Bollywood celebrities are getting fitter by the day and some of them even take the initiative to perform their own action stunts in front of the camera. Bollywood is no longer just about glitz and glamour anymore and most actors and actresses in Bollywood possess some serious ass-kicking skills! By that, we mean most celebrities are learning or have learned martial arts and are not afraid to show it off in front of the camera!

Here are ten celebrities from the hood, who have mastered the art of martial arts and are certainly very proud of it!

Akshay Kumar

We’ve seen the star in action since his ‘Khiladi’ days. The veteran action hero is trained in Muay Thai, a martial arts form from Thailand, while he was in Bangkok, before joining Bollywood. He also runs many martial arts academies all over the country and has opened a women’s only self-defence centre recently in Mumbai. Talk about imparting wisdom!

Aishwarya Rai

Ash learned karate for her blockbuster flick ‘Robot’, a movie she did with Rajnikanth a few years ago. Imagine the most beautiful woman in the world kicking some serious butt in her karate gear! She was taught by her teacher ‘karate’ Ramesh, who runs the Japan Shito-Ryu karate school in India.

Tiger Shroff

With a name and body like that, you would actually expect him to know some hardcore martial arts! Tiger has been practicing martial arts since he was 14-years-old! Trained in gymnastics, Taekwondo and Wushu, he usually choreographs most of his stunts in his movies. Seen ‘Heropanti’ yet?

Deepika Padukone

When she signed up for ‘Chandni Chowk To China’, Deepika received some serious Jiu-Jitsu training and trust us, it wasn’t a crash course. You know why? because she was trained by her co-star Akshay Kumar himself!

John Abraham

While taking up ‘Race 2’, John was asked to train in MMA (mixed martial arts) for a sequence of ‘cage fighting’ in the movie. Not that John needs much training, but because it was a specialized skill, he had to undergo it! We’re not complaining, really!

Genelia D’Souza

Almost-new mommy to another baby boy, Genelia has trained in one of the toughest forms of martial arts called ‘Kalaripayattu’, from Kerala. She went through some vigorous training for her film ‘Urumi’, where she was a sword-wielding warrior and looked hot AF!

Vidyut Jamwal

Another ace Kalaripayattu practitioner, Vidyut has been learning martial arts since the age of 4. He didn’t hone the skill for a particular movie but to enhance his own technique in one of the most prominent forms of martial arts in India.

Nargis Fakhri

Nargis is currently training in Muay Thai and we think it’s for an upcoming movie! We’re just glad to see another woman throwing some kicks and punches on screen!

Randeep Hooda

If we’re talking about good bod’s and fitter people, we can’t leave Mr. Hooda behind, can we? The actor is quite the sportsman and also co-owns the Super Fighter League (SFL) team- Haryana Sultans. The actor plans to train the Mumbai fire-fighters in MMA (mixed martial arts) and we can’t be more thrilled!

Priyanka Chopra

PeeCee had to go through some intense martial arts training for her film ‘Drona’, which released back in 2008. It certainly doesn’t mean she’s forgotten her skill and we’re sure she shows them off time and again in ‘Quantico’! The actress was trained in Gatka, a style of stick fighting developed by the Sikhs in Punjab.

So there we have it, ten fit and fine Bollywood celebs who are tough as a brick, along with their fine acting skills. We also have experienced actors like Shilpa Shetty, Ajay Devgn, Govida, Kamal Hasan and Kangna Ranaut who know some form of martial arts too. Well, they definitely serve as true inspiration and we couldn’t be more proud of them!

2018 has been pretty eventful so far. We have kids eating tad pods, people creating ruckus over a fictional movie and men getting turned on by a school girl winking! Here’s another bizarre piece of information to add to the list-  a conspiracy theory that Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves is actually immortal! Yes, it sounds exactly the way you’ve read it and we’ll tell you how!

First off, we have Mr. Paul Mounet, a 19th century French actor, who had a striking resemblance to Keanu Reeves. The resemblance is so uncanny that you really feel as if Keanu owns a time travelling machine! Not only are the physical similarities striking, but the fact that Mounet was a prominent actor in Paris really confuses us about the sheer universal coincidence! We just think Keanu dresses up in 19th century French clothing every now and then and sits down patiently to get himself painted.

It’s not just the uncanny resemblance but we actually think Keanu Reeves hasn’t aged a bit since his absolute childhood hit ‘Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure’! Which makes us believe that he’s either immortal or needs to tell us which age-defining cream he is using! I am guessing Olay? While one may wonder the extent of cosmetic surgeries or Botox he may have used to give him the youthfulness we see but then again, it’s been 29 years since he first appeared on screen and we really can’t tell the difference between then and now! Which really presents the greatest dilemmas of all time: is Keanu Reeves really immortal?

Conspiracy Theory About Keanu Reeves Being Immortal© Youtube

It’s not just his face that’s ageless, it’s the way he’s been dressing over the years too! He’s never really mixed up his style or experimented with clothes, ever! You will always find him in a black blazer and a t shirt underneath it. Style statement or sheer laziness, who is to know!

Conspiracy Theory About Keanu Reeves Being Immortal© Facebook

Well, this isn’t a theory cooked up in a MensXP Monday morning meeting! We aren’t that jobless! A poll conducted by the Tylt found that 74% of the people around the world think he is immortal! Who are we to contest that anyway?

Conspiracy Theory About Keanu Reeves Being Immortal© Facebook

Whether or not Keanu Reeves is immortal remains to be seen but for now we really hope and wish he continues his acting career as flawlessly as his never-ageing skin!

If it’s one thing online dating has taught us, it’s to never give up. I was contemplating what to watch on Netflix last Sunday, while at home, and a dozen things showed up on my screen. I remember hearing someone talk about this ‘epic’ movie on modern day relationships on Netflix and I couldn’t find a better time to watch it. I cued the movie on and now I am sitting and penning down what I gathered from the movie that showed the ‘dullness’ of emotion, in too little a time.

Check Out Netflix's 'Newness' For A Fresh Perceptive On Modern Day Dating© Lost City

‘Newness’, a complete juxtaposition of the dating lives of a millennial couple, had me really intrigued. I started thinking about the solemn transition of old school dating to what it has become now and this movie made so much sense with that tangent in place. I am a sucker for old school romance where you stand your ground firm and fight anything plaguing the relationship but with the advent of a completely new dating age, situations are targeted for risks at the brink of a ‘right swipe’. Although this movie tried to hold the essence of old school dating really hard, it also gave a rather submissive peak into what dating has now become, in the present.

Although this movie is a constant reminder about not working too hard on relationships and the next love of your life could be a Tinder match away, it also throws an outline about ‘what happens when you actually find love on a dating app’?

Martin (Nicholas Hault) and Gabi (Laia Costa) are living a typical ‘dull’ millennial existence. Dull because they define their daily dose of excitement through probable Tinder matches. They both are addicted to Tinder and finding the right person to sleep with is on their agenda. Things don’t always go as one expects them to and hence they keep meeting the wrong people all the time. Case in point: Martin shrugs off his colleagues to hook up with a Tinder Swipe. The evening doesn’t go as planned and he finds out that the girl is down one too many Klonopin pills and she throws up. Gabi, on the other hand has her status on the dating app set as ‘DTF’ ( I am gonna let you Google that one on your own) and she’s very clear as to what she wants. She matches with an Instagram model, who is mighty selfish in bed. After going through rancid experiences in their respective dating lives, they finally swipe on each other and that’s when it begins!

What’s expected to be a night of just sex turns out to be an all-nighter date. They spend the night talking and getting to know each other and eventually have sex that is both intense and satisfying. Gabi stays the night and the next day, while they spend it strolling about art museums and one montage later, they’re a couple who have marathon bouts of physical intimacy! Before you know it, they’re facing their first triumph as a couple: deleting their dating apps, together!

Martin is extremely handsome and kind but terse while Gabi is free-spirited and an open book. Of course, complications arise due to their personality differences and after a huge fight one night, they term themselves as ‘incompatible’ and sleep with other people, simultaneously. After they come clean to each other about the mutual cheating, they decide to experiment with the likes of an ‘open relationship’. Open relationships are an acquired taste and it’s really not for everybody. I believe modernity offers so much sex, it’s really so easy to stray and latch on to things that make more sense out of behaving a particular way.

Check Out Netflix's 'Newness' For A Fresh Perceptive On Modern Day Dating© Lost City

For Marin and Gabi, seeing other people, while still seeing each other made so much sense in their sex-charged love life that they both tried to adapt to the lifestyle, to the best of their abilities. They spy on one another flirting, they keep no secrets and have threesomes and it seems to be working for the two of them. Or so they think. Being in a open or a polyamorous relationship is incredibly tough if you’re not emotionally strong to handle it. Logically, it makes sense, while you find the ‘forever mate’, you’re allowed to experiment and experience other fractions of love too. But to understand the dynamic of such a relationship, the couple has to be a bit brazen in life. The projection of an open relationship in this movie though has been a bit bleak. While they have intertwined Gabi’s emotions and Martin’s dilemmas, they have failed to make sense of why they’ve pegged a romantic story as a soiree of sexual fantasies.

Check Out Netflix's 'Newness' For A Fresh Perceptive On Modern Day Dating© Lost City

But one good lesson that came out of this movie is the fact that people realise their mistakes only after they’ve made one too many. In this case, Martin and Gabi ultimately end up together after noticing how they’re actually incomplete without each other, while philandering about with other men and women. Do open relationships strengthen the bond between an existing couple? Something to think about.

Check Out Netflix's 'Newness' For A Fresh Perceptive On Modern Day Dating© Lost City

For now, I feel the audience was looking forward to falling in love with the idea of the characters being in love but that emotion was swiftly taken away from us. The basic essence of a couple in ‘love’ is missing in their characters and it makes the movie seem a little dull and dreary between the two of them, with no inner lives, no ‘life, likes and the universe’ kinda conversations and a black and grey perspective on everything. Is this the actual advent of modern day relationships? I shudder to think!

Watch the movie and decide for yourself!

Do you ever wonder if there will be another ‘Die Hard’ again? Well, Mr. Willis just confirmed there just maybe another part releasing soon and we can’t contain our excitement! Yipee Ki Yay! Bruce Willis, the 62- year-old superstar has just revealed that there’s a script for the sixth ‘Die Hard’ film.

Bruce Willis Confirms The Die Hard 6 Script Exists(c)20th Century Fox

The leading man revealed this awesome piece of news on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’, where he appeared with a broken arm, which was cradled in a sling.

Here’s what he said:

While talking about his last action movie ‘Death Wish’ , Willis also paid homage to one of his greatest role ever, while talking about 30 years of ‘Die-Hard’!

Bruce Willis Confirms The Die Hard 6 Script Exists(c)20th Century Fox

When Fallon asked him if the ‘rumour’ of another ‘Die Hard’ was true, Bruce Willis confirmed “I’m about to wing out to California to start to see what the script looks like. So I think [it will happen]. Yeah.”

Which truly means there is a script under consideration and it will definitely feature Bruce in a leading role once again. The big question though is-will it be a Christmas release?

‘Die Hard’ has also been added to the National Film Registry by Congress, which Bruce believes is a great honour.

Here’s hoping the best action movie franchise doesn’t fade away from our screen, because honestly, we’re really never ‘too old for this shit!’

Daniel Craig still has one Bond film up his sleeve but people are already betting on the next probable bond! Daniel’s exit from the Bond franchise will leave a subtle hint of disappointment all around but we’re hopeful the next Bond will do deserving justice to the role and why shouldn’t he? It’s the most reactionary and overrated role in British cinema, ever!

I’ve  taken into consideration the most suited contenders who could be a part of the franchise after Craig and I am betting my money and hopes on them! You can certainly agree to disagree with me!

Cillian Murphy

His odds to become the next Bond were quite high a while ago but they’ve been slashed tremendously after his recent series ‘Peaky Blinders’ started doing well, where he plays Tommy Shelby.

Why: We can totally see Murphy giving the Bond character a fresh and an exciting take. With the beautiful blue eyed charm and chiselled cheek bones, his character as Tommy Shelby is quite similar to that of James Bond in many ways, being a ladies’ man, with an air of mystery around him. Personally I wish it’s him!

Tom Hardy

But of course! He’s inarguably one of the most talented actors around right now (seen Locke?) but he isn’t sure yet if he’d want to take up the role. But there’s no harm in assuming he could!

Why: If you look at him carefully, I believe he physically resembles Fleming’s Bond, with his natural build and a dangerous edge! And moreover so, he did play a Bond like character in Nolan’s ‘Inception’, so we already know how awesome his idea of Bond is going to be. Unfortunately though Hardy fuelled a debate recently by saying “There’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting… that if you talk about it (Bond rumours) you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one!” . Seems like Bond wants Hardy more than Hardy wants Bond!

Michael Fassbender

Remember Magneto from the latest X-Men Franchise? A typical Hollywood heavyweight, Fassbender can make for the perfect English spy. But he’s sceptical about taking up the franchise too and has already said no! (is it because he’s half German?)  That doesn’t stop me from listing him here anyway!

Why: For one, definitely revisit ‘Inglorious Basterds’ where he plays Lieutenant Archie Hicox , a model British soldier who respects the chain of command and you’ll see what I mean. He’s always the wise quaint, intellectual man, who can kill you with his thumb! Exactly how Bond is envisioned! At 39, he’s an actor at the height of his powers!

Idris Elba

Possible Men Who Can Be The Next James Bond© Pinterest

A very popular choice with critics and fans alike, Elba has been a star contender for playing the next Bond.

Why: What’s there to ask? Tall, handsome, charismatic and suave, he has all that it takes to become the next Bond. We’ve already seen how tough he is playing John Luther, in the British crime drama series ‘Luther’ and I believe he checks all the boxes! Apart from all that, his casting would be historic of course but Elba feels there should be less emphasis laid on him playing a ‘black Bond’ and more emphasis on a natural Bond, who happens to be black! The only problem, though, he’s 43 (four years younger than Craig) and ideally, Bond should last at least a decade!

Damien Lewis

After a ‘black Bond’ are you ready for ‘ginger hair Bond?’ Also, how cool was Band of Brothers? I absolutely dug the series! (it also earned him a Golden Globe nomination BTW!)

Why: A very smooth performer, Lewis will be a whiff of fresh air, after Craig’s very blunt character. His work in ‘Homeland’ was exceptional and with the calibre of adorning a hard working role always, he’s going to do full justice to Bond. He’s 45, which means, he may never be seen as Bond! But he’s definitely one of my favourites on the Bond wish list!

Hugh Jackman

I will definitely pay big monies to see Jackman as Bond! My personal favourite, I wish for him to break out of ‘Wolverine’ and sip some dry Vodka Martini – Shaken, not stirred, on screen.

Why: A fine actor, a definitive ‘manly-man’ and that attitude he carries forth with his roles-he’d make the perfect Bond! Alas, he turned the role down even before Craig was considered to play Bond! Why Hugh why!

James Norton

Possible Men Who Can Be The Next James Bond© Youtube

TV Star Norton’s career skyrocketed with ‘Happy Valley’, ‘War and Peace’ and ‘Grantchester’. I am sure, playing Bond is totally his kinda thing.

Why: I am quite certain Norton can slip into Bond’s character easily with his boyish charms and suave personality to match 007. Young, well educated, attractive and smart AND a rising good actor, what’s there not to consider? Except maybe, his transition from a TV actor to James Bond might take time and people probably will not recognise him as Bond immediately.

So that’s my list of men I believe can and should make the next Bond! They have everything that’s needed and more. Definitely tell me if you have some more contenders you’d like to list out, in the comment section below.

‘What is it good for? Absolutely EVERYTHING!’. We just got the best news ever and we can’t stop ourselves from smiling like crazy people! Believe it or not, but a lil’ birdie told us that Detectives Carter and Lee (Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker) are going to make a grand comeback with ‘Rush Hour 4’ and it’s going to be epic!

Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker Confirm Rush Hour 4 Is Releasing Next Year© New Line Cinema

The first film was released back in 1998, when you were still too young to remember it! But I am sure you’ve seen all three parts by now and it’s already amongst your favourite franchises. The film had massive success thanks to the memorable dialogues and all that kung-fu! Case in point: “Do you understand the words coming out of my mouth”. I bet you said that a lot when the movie was first released!

Jackie Chang when spoken to earlier, had already confirmed that he’s involved in the fourth part of the film. Chris Tucker, however, was still uncertain at the time.

The film is said to release next year in all probability. Fingers crossed!

Horror as a genre has always intrigued us enough to give us some great cinematic experience. Horror movies are bringing about some great show and tell of different experimental ideas, better visual and sound effects and characters you cannot forget easily, unfortunately.

What do you get when you put James Cameron and a gush of experiential transcendental action packed drama, together in a box? The most expensive movie ever made, duh! Hold your breath for some mind twisting $1 billion sequels of the movie ‘Avatar’, coming your way in the next couple of years and we kid you not when we say director Cameron can afford just about any actor to star in his sequels.

Joining him for the sequels this time though is Kate Winslet, who is rumoured to star in the forthcoming series, making her James’s lucky charm, after the thriving success of Titanic, the second highest grossing film of all time; the highest being Avatar, of course.

New Avatar Sequels Are Going To Be Out Soon© Facebook

Eight years after the raging success and extravagant CGI effects of the original ‘Avatar’, Cameron has officially started the production on four sequels (yes, four!), which will be filmed over the coming years. The first one is out on December 18, 2020, and the remaining three are out December 17 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025, respectively. All these sequels will be shot back-to-back and we’re not sure for now how many will have Kate Winslet staring in them. Let’s hope for at least 2, if not all!

Along with the original ‘Avatar’ –Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sam Worthington, we’ll see a lot of new child actors, who have recently been announced for the sequel. Remember Jake Sully and Neytiri’s (played by Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana) whirlwind of a romance back in Pandora? Turns out the leading characters have been busy for the last eight years and now they have three kids in the upcoming sequels: Neteyam, Lo’ak and Tuktirey, played by Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton and Trinity Bliss respectively. Then we have the Metkayina clan members, which include Tsireya (Baily Bass), Aonung (Felip Geljo), and Rotxo (Duane Evans Jr.).

That’s one helluva cast! Cameron’s focused on the young guns aka the future generations of Pandora to take the sequels forward and we can’t wait to see how they go about it. We actually can’t wait to see Kate bestow her finest in these series. Right now though, you should catch her new romance disaster survival film, alongside Idris Elba called ‘The Mountain Between Us’.

Thomas Beach Alter, also known as Tom Alter, was a loved figure of the Indian Cinema fraternity and was best known for playing a staunch British Official in many movies. He died earlier this week, after giving us 40 years of uninterrupted and dedicated cinema and he will forever be remembered for some of his prominent roles that we absolutely loved!

From ‘Gandhi’ to ‘Junoon’ to even ‘Shaktiman’, a fine actor to watch on screen and in theatre, he has definitely left a legacy behind with his fine acting skills. The actor sadly passed away after battling stage 4 of cancer.

Here’s a peek into the actor’s versatile acting career and the characters he played, that stuck with us, through time, in these 10 roles in films and television series, respectively!

Shatranj Ke Khilari (1977)

Tom started his Bollywood journey with this Satyajit Ray film. The movie was based on Munshi Premchand’s short story.
