The trailer of ‘Ávengers: Infinity War’ met all our high expectations and in fact, was even better than we expected. But you know how Marvel works right? They’ll always leave you bewildered by the sheer epic-ness of their trailers while revealing the plot in a ‘just enough’ manner and also keeping you in the dark about one or two aspects.

If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, what are you even doing in your life?

Isn’t it magnificent? It sure is. But if you look closely, there is one person missing from the trailer and in fact, he is one of the original Avengers. We are talking about ‘Hawkeye’ who is played by Jeremy Renner.


When the trailer came out, fans were surprised by his absence and thought they might just get to see him in some promotional material but nope, that didn’t happen either. And the reason behind the same might just be in the comic books.

First things first, in ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ we saw him taking retirement in order to spend more time with his family. Then we did see him make a brief return in ‘Captain America: Civil War.

But the ‘Ávengers: Infinity War’ Prelude comic book reveals what happened after the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and shows where each hero goes after being freed. According to the same, Hawkeye went back to his retirement phase and his family while others continue with their work as superheroes.

Have a look at this comic panel:

Now it all makes sense as to why he is missing from the trailer and other promotional material. But the good news is that we will, in fact, see him in the movie but with a different identity, as ‘Ronin’. He’ll PROBABLY return from his retirement if Captain America talks him out of it again. But obviously, this is Marvel we are talking about so basically anything and everything is possible and to get concrete answers, we will have to wait until April 27, 2018.

While the world is busy celebrating womanhood on International Women’s Day with marketing gimmicks and special ‘discounts’ for women, our Indian celebrities and sportspersons are taking out some time to genuinely thank the women in their lives.

Whether it’s their daughter, wife or mother, the who’s who of the sports and Bollywood industry took to their social media to celebrate womanhood. And the best part is that while doing so, they are doing their bit to enlighten their fans and spread awareness about what all women are achieving and how they are fighting whatever hurdles life throws at them in their own unique ways.

1. Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter was flooded with pictures of his daughter, wife, daughter-in-law, and granddaughters. However, he made sure to request his fans to do whatever they can for the empowerment of women.

I’ve always been touched by the commitment, dedication & struggle that a woman goes through as a individual, mother, sister, wife, daughter to survive and I’ve tried to signify it through my films & will continue to do so. My respect & gratitude 2 every woman.

While all the men went all out with their wishes, our ladies obviously didn’t stay behind to celebrate themselves and other women. From Bipasha Basu to Anushka Sharma, everyone had a special message for their fellow ladies.

While the celebration of womanhood should not be restricted to a single day in the year, all these wishes and messages are just more proof that without women, everything is incomplete.

Richa Chadha is perhaps one of the most under-rated actresses in Bollywood. From ‘Oye Lucky Lucky Oye’ to ‘Fukrey’, she has tried her hand at different roles and has always excelled at whatever she does. And once again, her bold personality will come to the forefront as she is all set to play the role of adult actress Shakeela.

Fuzzy Hun main. Fuzzy Hun main. Mujhe na Chhooona. Fuzzy Hun main.

A post shared by Richa Chadha (@therichachadha) on Jan 3, 2018 at 2:11am PST

According to Deccan Chronicle, Richa has been roped in to star as Shakeela in her biopic. For those who don’t know, Shakeela, who hails from Kerala, was one of the biggest actresses of the 90s who acted in several adult films in various languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.

She made her debut in the film industry at the age of 16 and took the world by storm. Her films were such a raging success and her fanfare knew no bounds which was surprising, given that the film industry was dominated mostly by men during that era. That resulted in her films being dubbed in languages across India and also in languages Chinese, Nepalese and others.

According to the report, Richa’s spokesperson has stated, “The film is the story of Shakeela, one of the most famous actors from Malayalam cinema from the 90s who rose to a spectacular amount of fame. Her fans were spread across Asia and she earned fanfare as a woman which back then was unheard of. The film’s script was exciting and is a great story to tell and the story will make for a great watch for the audience. The preparations will begin soon and the film should be going on floors in end April or May.”


A post shared by Richa Chadha (@therichachadha) on Oct 28, 2017 at 8:13am PDT

Richa’s versatility and her no-f*ks given attitude is what sets her apart from her contemporaries and her fans are always excited to watch this bombshell on screen. Given her personality and her skills, we think she would do a kickass job in this role and undoubtedly, the film would become a blockbuster.

The film will have Indrajit Lankesh behind the director’s wheel and if it does go on floors this April, it’ll be set for a release in early 2019.

Sridevi’s untimely demise has left the entire world in shock but it probably had the most adverse impact on her two young daughters- Janhvi and Khushi. Losing your mother at such an early age is devastating, to say the least. But what’s worse is that the tragedy took place just before Janhvi was supposed to make her Bollywood debut with the film ‘Dhadak’ and Sridevi’s wish of watching her daughter on screen was left unfulfilled.

A post shared by Sridevi Kapoor (@sridevi.kapoor) on Jan 13, 2017 at 2:23am PST

Yesterday, it was Janhvi’s 21st birthday and it goes without saying that this was probably one of the saddest days for her. The young woman decided to pay a tribute to her mother by visiting an old age home to celebrate her birthday. 

@janhvikapoor you’re my light!I’m so proud of you. May you always have a reason to smile â?¤ï¸?

A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor / Khushi Kapoor (@janhviandkhushi) on Mar 6, 2018 at 5:00am PST

While everyone applauded her for doing this and for being so strong, the Kapoor clan decided to make the day a little better by arranging a private dinner at their residence.

Sonam Kapoor who earlier took to Instagram to wish Janhvi also shared pictures after the dinner. Not only her, Janhvi and Khushi were joined by half-sister Anshula Kapoor (daughter of Boney Kapoor and Mona Shourie), Rhea Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor, Jahaan (Sanjay and Maheep’s son) and filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi’s daughter Tanisha. The youngsters were seen smiling and sharing some light-hearted moments in the pictures.

In a small video posted by Janhvi’s fan accounts, Boney Kapoor can also be seen along with the rest of the young brigade as Janhvi cuts her birthday cake.

The Kapoor clan has made sure that they are by Janhvi’s side during this testing time. Seeing them support her through thick and thin have made her fans really happy, especially after Janhvi’s heartbreaking post that she made just a few days before her birthday for her mom. 

On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love. They have made you. And I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you’ll showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man who’s entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love. That would make her happy, to know that even in death, she gave you all something. The courage and inspiration to fill yourselves with nothing but love and rid yourselves of bitterness in any way and form. That’s what she stood for. Dignity, strength and innocence. Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.

A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor (@janhvikapoor) on Mar 2, 2018 at 10:09pm PST

We hope that Janhvi is able to make all her dreams come true and make her mother proud by following her legacy.

It’s always refreshing to see new on-screen couples, especially in a film that has ‘simplicity’ at the core of it. So when we learned about the upcoming film ‘Sui Dhaga’ starring Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma, we were beyond excited to see what the duo has in store for us.

Recently, we got our first look at their characters in the film- Mauji and Mamta, and it left us intrigued.

— Yash Raj Films (@yrf) February 13, 2018

This came as a surprise because first, this is the first time these two actors will be sharing screen space and secondly, because we have never seen them in this avatar. Seeing Varun with his old-school moustache and retro shirt and a plain salwar-kameez clad Anushka made us believe that if not anything else, this movie is definetly going to be relatable one.

A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Feb 12, 2018 at 9:38am PST

Reinstating this fact, Yash Raj Films posted another photo of the two from the sets of the film.

It shows an evidently exhausted looking Varun Dhawan riding a bicycle with Anushka Sharma sitting at the back. Although that’s a part of the everyday routine for a lot of people in the country, what is not normal is riding a cycle for 10 long hours. But Varun and Anushka did just that for the film in the scorching heat of Chanderi.

Take a look:

A post shared by Yash Raj Films (@yrf) on Mar 5, 2018 at 10:00pm PST

While that must have been hard on both of them, Varun also injured himself while shooting for a scene that needed him to tumble down a flight of stairs. Well, whosoever thought acting is easy and all glamorous should take note of this.

The film is inspired by the ‘Make in India’ campaign and is set for a 28th September release this year. And we definitely can’t wait to see how the actors’ hard work bears fruit.

The Academy Awards are always a delight to watch and the 90th edition this year, which was full of goofy moments and gorgeous red carpet appearances, was no exception. To see well-deserving movies and people of the Hollywood fraternity taking away the gold-plated award home, brings sheer happiness to fans across the world. And this time, it’s the oldest winner who has won everyone’s hearts.

Well-renowned director, producer, and screenwriter James Ivory just won the Oscar for ‘Best Adapted Screenplay’ for his work on the film ‘Call Me By Your Name’, adapted from André Aciman’s novel of the same name.

While winning awards is nothing new for the man, it’s his age that has taken everyone by surprise. At the age of 89, Ivory is now the oldest winner of an Academy Award.

The film set in Italy in 1983, tells the story of a life-changing romance between two guys, Elio and Oliver. For its positive portrayal of gay romance, the performances of the actors and the screenplay, the film has won critical appreciation across the world.

Apart from proving that age is no bar when it comes to doing exceptional work, he also made one hell of a style statement. James looked like his dapper self on the red carpet, wearing a shirt which had the face of ‘Call Me By Your Name’ star Timothée Chalamet.

Ivory, through his production house ‘Merchant Ivory Productions’ which is known for their literary adaptations, has collaborated with many Bollywood stars like Shashi Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Om Puri, Dina Pathak.

Academy Awards aka the Oscars are perhaps the most awaited awards in the entire world. It’s a night where not only the who’s who of the Hollywood industry but everyone sits with bated breath to see if or not their favourite films, music, director et al won big. However, the only thing that comes close to exciting us (apart from the winners of course) is who wore what. And like every other year, there were some gorgeous women who slayed the red carpet and won our hearts, all over again:

1. Gal Gadot

Just when we thought Wonder Woman cannot look more beautiful, she steps on the red carpet looking like a million bucks.

Zayn Malik and Bollywood are words that you must have seen together in way too many headlines over the last couple of weeks. From Zayn announcing that he is making his Bollywood singing debut soon, to him posting videos of him singing Hindi songs, the young singer has taken us all by surprise.

A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Sep 10, 2017 at 12:37pm PDT

His Indian fans were probably the most shocked, but were they impressed? Umm… not exactly.

His attempts at singing Hindi songs haven’t exactly gone down well with the Indian audience. While some couldn’t stop praising him, others were hoping that he never sings another Hindi or Urdu song ever, especially not ones like ‘Teri Deewani’ and ‘Allah ke Bande’.

Hear him sing and judge for yourself:

Tere deewani by zayn

A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Feb 26, 2018 at 3:19pm PST

Here is another one:

Tere deewani by zayn

A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Feb 26, 2018 at 3:19pm PST

While we think it was a pretty good attempt, some are of the view that he basically ruined the two classic songs which are some of Kailash Kher’s best work and are an all time favourite of almost everyone.

After listen to @zaynmalik’s songs in hindi I had to purge my ears with actual Kailash Kher because that has to be some of the worst singing I have heard ever in life. And if you think it’s good, you’re lying or delusional.

— Fizza Raza (@fizzyrazz) February 28, 2018

can some Khuda ka banda please stop Zayn Malik from singing in Urdu.

— Ahmed (@azkhawaja1) February 27, 2018

@zaynmalik , @Kailashkher ji made this song alive by singing it. One of my favt. it is. Either try to sing it the way he had or don’t kill the soul of song! You are good in your own ways and try to cover that only. For rest, leave it on Kailash ji.

— Pritish Pushan (@mepritishpushan) March 1, 2018

Heard Zayn Malik singing Teri Deewaani and just felt something coming out of my ears, blood it was. Pretty sure I’ve lost my hearing guys. Sigh

— Natasha Khan (@iNatashaKhan) March 1, 2018

Quit Singing @zaynmalik
Especially if you have to ruin classics like #TeriDeewani of @Kailashkher

— Akshay Daniel 🇮🇳 (@Akshay_Daniel) March 1, 2018

Everyone has a different opinion and we were all genuinely hoping that this cover reaches Kailash Kher soon. And well, to our utmost happiness, it indeed got his attention but the way he responded was totally unexpected.

The good news is that Kailash is willing to ‘jam’ with Zayn but first, he suggests him to learn the nuances attached to the songs and improve his skills.


In an interview with news agency IANS, he said, “If Zayn is a real fan of Kailasa (Kailash’s band), we have our digital academy coming up. There will be a course dedicated to all our compositions, including Teri Deewani and all our superhits. To know the correct notes and nuances, he can join (the academy) and enroll himself. It will help him to improve his skills. Then we can jam together in future.”

Well, well, well, if that isn’t the most epic response, we don’t what is.

A lot has been said and done about Sridevi’s sudden demise. From blaming alcohol to even accusing her husband Boney Kapoor, speculations have been making the rounds since the day she passed away. But the fact is that we lost our first female superstar and that is irreversible.

Her funeral that took place yesterday was just another proof of how loved she was. Thousands of her fans gathered along with the who’s who of the Bollywood industry to bid their final goodbye. 

The cinema icon was given a state funeral with her body wrapped in the tricolor and a gun salute by the Mumbai Police.

Post the funeral, Boney Kapoor penned down a heart-wrenching letter to express his feelings on losing Sridevi. He also thanked the media, Sridevi’s fans for their constant support and also mentioned Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor for being the family’s ‘pillars of strength’ during this tough time.

He also made a request for letting the family grieve privately and ended the letter with: “Our lives will never be the same again.”

The statement was posted by him via Sridevi’s twitter account. Read the full letter here:

Before Boney’s letter, the family of the deceased actor also issued another emotional statement:

— Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) February 28, 2018

Both the letters have left all her fans in tears and although we would never be able to feel exactly what the family is going through, we have to say that without Sridevi, Bollywood too, will never be the same.

As soon as Netflix announced that it will be making its way to India, fans of the online streaming service were ready with their credit cards. But when it finally was available, it caused widespread disappointment across the country as the content available was different and way too less as compared to other countries.

So in a way to compensate for the same, Netflix decided to go ahead and make content with Indian actors and storylines that would be relatable to the Indian audience. Its upcoming show ‘Sacred Games’ is an attempt at the same and its first look sure looks promising.

The first thing that got us intrigued is the fact that it is based on the critically-acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name by author Vikram Chandra and is being directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.

Our hopes were already at an all-time high and then we got to hear the next best news which is the cast of the show: Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Radhika Apte.

And today, the Twitter account of Netflix India provided us with the first look at them.

The deadliest games are the ones we’ve been fooled into playing. Here’s the first look of #SacredGames

— Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) February 23, 2018

Radhika’s serious and solemn expression and Nawaz’s unsettling smile sure look intriguing.

But its Saif’s character that has all our attention.

First Look At Netflix's New Indian Show 'Sacred Games'© Twitter (Netflix India)

It’s clear that Saif is playing the role of a Sikh police offer and his blood splattered face is just what was needed to get the audience hooked. Good job Netflix!

The series would revolve around Inspector Sartaj Singh (Evidently Saif) and Ganesh Gaitonde, the most wanted gangster in India. Sartaj’s life is going downhill for a variety of reasons when an anonymous tip promises him an opportunity to capture Ganesh.

But of course, it isn’t going to be as easy as it seems. While the two indulge in a classic hide-and-seek game, it becomes clear that both of them are a part of something which is way larger than it appears to be. A story full of violence, betrayal, corruption, and politics awaits us.

On being asked about the release date by a user, Netflix just tweeted that they will keep us posted.

Soon, Aditya. We’ll keep you posted.
