After the announcement of biopics on sports stars Saina Nehwal, Abhinav Bindra, Pullela Gopichand and Mithali Raj, now a biopic on former Indian footballer Bhaichung Bhutia has been announced. Filmmaker Anand Kumar, known for his films like Delhi Heights (2007) and Zila Ghaziabad (2013), has conceptualised the film and is currently in the process of finalising the lead actor and director for the movie.

Anand said, “During the World Cup, I noticed that there has been a change in the sporting passion in India because a large section of Indias youth is now inclined towards football. Young kids like the sport more than cricket. Thats why I wanted to make a film on football and who better to start with than Bhaichung.” Adding that Bhaichungs journey will make for a compelling film, he said, “He has won the Padma Shri and has been a role model for many young Indians, who follow the game of football.”

Lately, sports dramas have minted money at the Bollywood box office. Films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Mary Kom and Soorma have been received well by Indian moviegoers.


Elated to have a biopic being made on him, Bhaichung said, “I am honoured that people feel that my journey is worth capturing for the big screen. I am certain that Anand will do justice to my story. I hail from a small town in Sikkim, but playing football for India wasnt my only dream. I always wanted to own a professional football club and I realised that dream with United Sikkim.”

He added, “I want the biopic to be as close to reality as possible. I was concerned about the writing process, but the moment I learnt that Anand has got Prashant Pandey (writer of Sarkar, Poorna and Raid) on board, I was relieved.”

Are Nipple Injections Safe? The Science Behind the Kendall Jenner–Inspired ‘Designer Nipple’ Look


Youve probably taken a torn-out magazine page to your hairstylist to ask for the latest celebrity cut or color trend. But would you ever do the same for your nipples? Apparently, women are doing just that at plastic surgeons' offices—and headlight-bearing stars like Kendall Jenner are being cited as their inspiration.

According to a report from the New York Post, doctors have noticed an increase in requests for protruding nipples in recent years. Norman Rowe, MD, a plastic surgeon in New York City, has even coined the term “designer nipples” to describe whats become his specialty. (In addition to nipple projection, Dr. Rowe also helps patients who want to change the size or color of their nipples and areolas, as well.)

“They see these celebrities wearing these sheer dresses, and they would like to emulate and mimic that type of clothing,” Dr. Rowe says in the Post's video. “And they want their nipple and the areola to be presentable.” Another NYC plastic surgeon told Hello Giggles that the demand for nipple-projection procedures has risen about 20% in the last few years.

Kendall Jenner, infrequent bra-wearer and champion of the #freethenipple movement, is often cited as an inspiration for these requests. In the video, one woman says of Jenner: “You can see the pointiness, and I think theres something really sexy and feminine about it.” Nipple-bearing snaps of Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are also included in the video.

So how exactly does one get such standout nipples—and is it safe? Health spoke with Anne Taylor, MD, an adjunct professor of plastic surgery at Ohio State University, about what these procedures involve.

In most cases, says Dr. Taylor, greater nipple projection can be achieved with an injection of cosmetic fillers, similar to Botox or lip injections. Most doctors use hyaluronic acid fillers, she says, “because theyre soft and squishy and they do the job quite nicely.” Her favorite filler for nipple injections is Juvaderm Voluma, because it produces the longest lasting results: Nipples stay firm and perky for about two years, no cold weather required.

These procedures can be done quickly, in just a few minutes, and theyre generally very safe. “Any time a patient has any injection, there are risks involved,” says Dr. Taylor. “But for this, the risks are very low.”

The most serious risk, she says, is a vascular occlusion, which can happen when a filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel. “If that happens, the blood supply is blocked and the tissue thats being supplied by the artery can die,” says Dr. Taylor. “Those are serious complications, but theyre also very rare and very unlikely if the procedure is done by a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon whos board-certified.”

Rihanna’s Booty Pic Is Inspiring Fans to Stop Shaving and Embrace Stretch Marks


The star shared sexy bikini shots of herself sunbathing.

Rihanna cannot wait for summer, and understandably so. Those of us living in the sad, cold winter states faced three Noreasters this season and its incredibly safe to say that like RiRi, we are #overit.

But the Barbados native seems to have found warmer weather somewhere. On Wednesday, the pop star-turned-fashion and beauty entrepreneur shared sexy bikini shots of herself sunbathing.

At first swipe, we noticed only RiRi's gorgeous natural long locks, plus that wild animal-print bottom, which looks a lot like several Charlie By MZ pieces she wore a few years back. In the comments, fans of course were quick to praise her, writing things like, “Does she just open a camera and its an automatic good angle,” and “You so hot.”

But apparently, some eagle-eyed fans also spotted a bit of hair, speculating that Rihanna didnt shave her legs for the photo opp. “ l love the fact that her legs are hairy!” one commenter wrote, with another adding, “When you cant shave your legs #nohate.”

Fans on Twitter reacted to the shot as well, inspiring some to declare what we suggest should be called #NoShaveSummer.

To us, the backlit photo isnt all that hairy (doesnt it just look a healthy layer of peach fuzz?), but we're all for RiRi fans embracing their body hair.

Better yet, Rihannas gram also inspired fans to be body positive. Some followers noticed lines on her behind that theyre calling stretch marks, again praising RiRi for flaunting her body in all its natural glory.

“Thank you for not editing these pictures and taking out your stretch marks,” one fan wrote, with others adding, “Look at them beautiful stretch marks” and “Them stretch marks though.”

Influenced: I Thought Pearl Necklaces Were Totally Boring Until I Saw These


I've always thought that pearl necklaces were pretty, but just a little formal for my taste . . . until now. Turns out, there's a new breed in town, and they're not like your grandmother's pearls. After everyone's obsession with seashell jewelry last Summer, it seems like pearls are taking center stage this season. While you may think of Old Hollywood glam starlets like Grace Kelly, 2020 has unleashed a modern iteration on the timeless trend that's been spotted on everyone from Harry Styles to Gigi Hadid. Harry could very well be the unofficial spokesman for how to rock pearl necklaces with all of the notable times he's worn one recently. (Our favorite is when he wore one to the 2020 BRIT Awards with a purple Gucci suit.)

Like the new generation of stars wearing the trend, the necklace itself has gotten a modern twist. Think unique shapes and fun additions like initial letters and colorful beads added to offset the traditional feel. Brands like Timeless Pearly have been spotted on countless streRead More – Source

Hollyoaks spoilers: Horror death in shocking far-right attack?

Will Jonny and Stuarts plans lead to another death in Hollyoaks? (Picture: Channel 4)

Jonny Baxter (Ray Quinn) and Stuart Sumner (Chris Simmons) have succeeded in radicalising Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) in Hollyoaks, and the far-right extremists take things to the next level in the coming episodes — but with things set to escalate in a pretty big way, will someone lose their life as a result?

Ever since showing up in the village last year, Jonny had made it his mission to manipulate and groom Ste, and hes done so by using the young lads vendetta against the Maalik clan. As a result, Ste has since become a shadow of his former self, and his actions have become increasingly racist — something which hes unable to see for himself.

His blind loyalty to Jonny and Stuart has proven to be incredibly dangerous as well, as weve seen him get involved in all sorts of dodgy activities, from targeting Misbah (Harvey Virdi) online, to arranging a protest — the very same protest which quickly descended into chaos and thus endangered many lives.



However, Stes none the wiser to Jonny and Stuarts antics, and things are set to reach boiling point in the coming episodes as a result. At Stuarts family day, Ste delivers a speech — and hes greeted with a rapturous applause. Jack (Jimmy McKenna) overhears and — feeling disgusted — decides to report them to the police.

Jonny and Stuart

Following the reception he received, Ste is on cloud nine, and wastes little time in taking selfies with his new adoring fans. Meanwhile, Stuart and Jonny discuss whether or not they should let Ste in on the plan — a plan which is set to take place on this very day.

Later, Ste agrees to help with Stuarts big plan — but hes no idea what hes letting himself in for.

Jonny and Stuart have proven just how ruthless they are on plenty of occasions in the past. Read More – Source

Lives in Little Boxes


Written by Anushree Majumdar | Published: March 17, 2018 12:24 am Arjun MukerjeeTop News

In Mumbai, one mustn’t feel surprised when asked to state exactly which “society” or apartment block they live in. It’s never quite enough to tell an inquisitive stranger the name of the neighbourhood — they must also know which building. In a city where space is a constant constraint, the apartment blocks function as a self-contained universe, where lives inside little boxes play out like multiple TV screens in an electronics store; where parking lots double as playgrounds in the afternoon, and everybody knows everybody. In ad director-turned-filmmaker Arjun Mukerjee’s debut offering, Three Storeys, that kind of microcosm is explored in another Bombay specialty — the chawl.

“One of the things that interests me as a filmmaker is how adept we are at wearing masks, during every kind of interaction in our lives, whether it is with our neighbours, the cabbies, the workplace. But when it comes to love, the masks slip off, and we show ourselves as who we really are,” says Mukerjee, 47, whose film explores three love stories that are intertwined and play out over three storeys of a fictional chawl. These are centred around a Goan widow, a young Maharashtrian housewife, and two teenagers who must combat much more than love jihad to be together.

Three Storeys, written by Althea Kaushal, seems like a pastiche of some of the world’s best short story writers — O Henry, Anton Chekov, Roald Dahl and Saki, to name a few — who were all masters of the twist in the ending. “The first story, featuring Renuka Shahane, is based on a short story, titled The Right Kind of House, that we purchased from the estate of the American writer, Henry Slesar,” says Mukerjee, who has directed over 100 ad films since his career in the advertising industry took off in 1999. Shahane does a wonderful job as Flory Mendonca, a widow whose immaculate three-room setup is for sale, but nobody wants to pay Rs 80 lakh to live in a chawl — till a charming buyer shows up. “We needed somebody who could deliver a mix of the modest and the macabre, and who could play both a young and an older Flory. Renuka just fit the part so well. We worked hard to make sure that Flory’s Bombay Goan accent sounded authentic, as well as her apartment, since so much takes place in her living room,” says Mukerjee, who recce-ed 160 chawls before a set was created on a strip of marshland in Trombay.

In its second week, Three Storeys is quietly gathering favourable reviews for its performances, and for its portrayal of its women characters. Traditionally, men have etched their identity in the world outside, while a woman’s life is inside her home — a space that demands her to be mother, sister, wife, lover — without any pay or reprieve. “Most of the heads of department in the film were women. I didn’t set out to make a film that would be preachy or ‘women-centric’. I’ve always thought women are far more interesting than men, and wanted to tell some of the stories,” says Mukerjee.

Here’s How to Identify an Allergy Headache, According to an Allergist


You're hydrating regularly and getting ahead of your stress, but your headaches won't quit — seasonal allergies may be the one trigger you haven't outsmarted.

According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, throbbing headaches that occur over the sinus area of your face (your cheekbones, eyes, bridge of the nose, and forehead) or on one side of your head are often allergy-induced.

"The usual seasonal-allergy headache will be associated with a lot of nasal congestion and other nasal and eye symptoms," Dr. Alan Goldsobel, MD, with the Allergy & Asthma Associates of Northern California, adds.

Throughout spring and early summer, Dr. Goldsobel explains that allergens — which generally create inflammation and swelling in the nasal passages and sinus cavities — can also trigger migraines in people who are prone to them.

If seasonal-allergy headaches are negatively affecting your quality of life, Dr. Goldsobel suggests that you see a doctor. In the meantime, over-the-counter medications like allergy antihistamines, anti-allergy nasal sprays, acetaminophens, or NSAIDs could help ease your pain.

Reducing your exposure to allergens by avoiding the outdoors during peak-pollen times — like midmorning, early evening, and while the wind is blowing — can also lower your risk of allergy headaches.

While inside, keep your doors and windows closed, wash your hands or take a shower after being outside, and usRead More – Source
