Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany speak about Wanda and Visions relationship in Avengers Infinity War


By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: March 27, 2018 8:28 pm Avengers: Infinity War will release on April 27.Related News

Avengers: Infinity War features such a dizzyingly huge cast of characters that it is easy to lose track of all others except your favourite ones. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is made up of disparate beings with their own unique personalities. You like some, you dislike some, and you are indifferent to others. The latest fan-favourites are Elizabeth Olsens Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettanys Vision.

Vision is a walking MacGuffin since he has an Infinity Stone stuck to his head. Thanos wants it and that puts Visions life in danger. Speaking to Collider, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany spoke about the relationship between the two characters.

“I think that Visions been on this quest to understand what being human is, and I think Scarlet Witch [has] in a large degree helped him figure that out and what love is. [Sings] “I wanna know what love is?” Its in the movie, thats the scene the paparazzi [shot]. “I wanna know what love is?” Yeah, so theyre trying to figure that out […] theyre very much in love at this point,” Bettany said.

This is good to know, and this is coming from a hardcore Marvel fan. It becomes difficult to care about individual characters amid all the world-spanning events unless there are well-developed characters, relationships, and bonds. We may see another interesting moment when Black Widow meets Bruce Banner.

Elizabeth also spoke about the relationship, “Oh yeah! Yeah, that is fun. It just feels like you have something really specific to work with all the time. And that feels nice. Theres like an anchor point to everything, which is what youre constantly looking for when youre doing these movies. What anchors you to a grounded reality? And you have that throughout the whole film. You have your partner, your life partner with you by your side, and that creates a different kind of stakes, as well.”

Sonam and Kareena Kapoor make friendship look beautiful in this candid photo

With ten days left for the release of Bollywoods much-awaited release Veere Di Wedding, the makers are on their toes to promote it. Amidst all the interviews and appearances on television shows, a photo of two out the four Veeres, Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan has surfaced on social media and it is everything beautiful. Shared by the producer of the film and Sonams sister Rhea Kapoor, the click is from Sonams dreamy wedding. The actor got hitched to longtime beau Anand Ahuja in a private ceremony in Mumbai, followed by a starry reception earlier this month.

The photo which has Sonam and Kareena embracing each other has been shared with the caption, “And they say actresses cant be friends. Couldnt help myself. Real and reel bride. Happy girls, strong independent, crazy talented and also just crazy. Its been a two year long journey and now its all just ten days away. #sentimentalproducer #sentimentalsister also just mental.” Rheas photo and its caption seem to be a perfect response to the rumours of a tiff between Sonam and Kareena during the shoot of Veere Di Wedding. Earlier this year, the team of the film also released a statement quashing the rumours. Also, in an industry where it is believed that two female co-actors cant be friends, the photo proves otherwise.

Veere Di Wedding, releasing on June 1 is a story about four friends. The trailer of the film had everything from bonding between four girls, their crib sessions about the world, shopping, love and a wedding. Directed by Shashanka Ghosh and co-produced by Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor, the film also stars Swara Bhasker, Shikha Talsania and Sumeet Vyas.

Meanwhile, newlyweds Sonam and Anand are making the best of whatever little time the actor is getting from the promotions of her film. On Monday evening, the couple was spotted walking out of a restaurant in Mumbai. The two were all smiles as the paparazzi clicked them walking hand in hand.

The Crown Season 3: Introducing Helena Bonham Carters Princess Margaret


Just two days after the first look at Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II dropped, Netflix has released two more juicy stills from the upcoming season of The Crown. This go-round, its time to say hello to Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret (taking the reins from actress Vanessa Kirby) and Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon (formerly played by Matthew Goode). In Season 2, the pair fell in love and got married. In Season 3, which moves a few years into the future, well likely see their relationship begin to crumble.

The Princess Margaret still features Bonham Carter dressed in a brown coat, disdainfully clasping a cigarette holder. The still is accompanied with a simple caption: “Hope.”

The Lord Snowdon still features Daniels holding a camera and staring straight into your soul. The image is accompanied with this caption: “Hurt.”

Season 3, which will take place around the late 1960s and early 1970s, will likely show the dissolution of the royal couples relationship. As depicted in Season 2, the pair met at a dinner party, falling in love and eventually getting married at Westminster Abbey in 1960. But there were problems from the beginning. Snowdon wasnt a faithful partner, having affairs and even fathering a child with another woman; the child was born just weeks after the royal wedding. It was rumored that both the princess and Snowdon carried on affairs throughout their marriage. They announced their separation in 1976, and eventually divorced in 1978.

Still, they were one of the more thrilling couples in the royal family, hobnobbing with rock stars and other celebrities of the swinging 60s and beyond—and leaving The Crowns writing team with no shortage of stories to pull from.

Anthony Bourdains Parts Unknown Will Remain on Netflix for “Months to Come”


Anthony Bourdains wildly popular CNN docuseries, Parts Unknown, isnt leaving Netflix after all. Though the show was previously scheduled to exit the platform on June 16 once Netflixs license deal expired, the recent death of the star chef pushed the streaming service to rally and maintain the series.

“As of today, weve extended our agreement that will keep Parts Unknown on the service for months to come,” the company said in a statement Tuesday. This should delight the thousands of fans who have petitioned Netflix to keep the series, which had just days to go until its previous license deals expiration. Seasons 1 through 8 of the Emmy-winning food and travel series—a celebrated exploration of cultures all around the world, praised for its depth and honesty, and guided by Bourdains reflective candor and poetic narration—are currently available on the platform.

The series was in the midst of filming an upcoming episode when its host, Bourdain, was found dead in his hotel room in France on Friday from an apparent suicide. His death was mourned all over the world, a staggering loss to the culinary community and beyond. Asia Argento, Bourdains partner, released a statement saying she was “beyond devastated,” calling him “a brilliant, fearless spirit.” Former president Barack Obama, who was featured in a Vietnam episode of Parts Unknown, released a statement eulogizing the legendary chef and TV host: “Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer,” he wrote, quoting Bourdains words in the episode. “This is how Ill remember Tony. He taught us about food—but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. Well miss him.”

CNN paid tribute to Bourdain by airing his favorite episodes of Parts Unknown over the weekend, as well as episodes from Season 11. The shows Web site currently features a tribute to its star on its homepage, accompanied by this Bourdain quote: “If Im an advocate for anything, its to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone elses shoes or at least eat their food.”

Chelsea Handler Says She’s Considering a Breast Reduction. Here’s Why She’s Not Alone


On a recent vacation with her family, comedy queen and body-positive icon Chelsea Handler posted on social media about a struggle many women can relate to: "I just want everyone to know, that this is my situation when I try to get into a bathing suit,” the 43-year-old said in an Instagram story as she posed in a bikini. "My boobs don’t fit into anything.”

Handler then added that “the breast reduction conversation is officially on the table.” And while it’s not clear how serious she was in that moment, the procedure she’s talking about is no laughing matter. In fact, breast-reduction surgery saw a spike in popularity in the last year, according to a recent report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

We don’t know the extent of Handler’s frustration with her figure, but for a lot of women with large breasts, fitting into a bikini is just one of the problems they struggle with on a regular basis. And for many of those women, doctors say that a breast reduction can have serious health and quality-of-life benefits.

But there’s also a lot that women may not know about breast-reduction surgery. (After all, it's still performed much less often than breast augmentations, which typically produce the opposite result.) So in case Handler—and anyone else out there—really is considering going under the knife, here are a few things to know about the increasingly popular procedure.

It may relieve painful and uncomfortable symptoms

“A lot of women with large breasts complain about shoulder pain, neck pain, and upper or even lower back pain,” says Alyssa Golas, MD, clinical assistant professor of plastic surgery at NYU Langone Health. “It’s usually chronic in nature—something they take ibuprofen for on a regular basis, or something their primary doctor has sent them to a physical therapist for.”

That pain can be caused by the weight of the breasts pulling on the upper body; some women also get painful grooves in their shoulders from their bra straps, as well. And while there’s no guarantee, says Dr. Golas, a surgical breast reduction often relieves a lot of this pain.

“Studies have shown that improvement in symptoms is really independent of breast size,” says Dr. Golas. In other words, it’s not that people with larger breasts automatically get larger pain reductions; rather, the procedure tends to help everyone (or at least most women) who are considered good candidates.

Another common problem with large breasts is that women can get red, itchy rashes underneath them—especially in the summertime or if they tend to sweat a lot. “Sometimes they respond to a topical cream or powder, but a lot of times they don’t,” says Dr. Golas. Surgery tends to help this problem as well, since it gets rid of the skin folds underneath the breasts.

The Hatha Yoga Flow ‘Designated Survivor’ Star Maggie Q Swears By


Get fit like Maggie Q with these hatha yoga moves from Katonah Yoga teacher Danielle Rosati, who works with the star.

Actress Maggie Q has practiced yoga for nearly 20 years, but it wasn’t until she started studying a form of hatha at Katonah Yoga in New York that she became passionate about it. “Danielle Rosati [a certified Katonah Yoga teacher] has made me fall in love with my practice. Her enthusiasm and knowledge take you deeper and create a foundation to build on for a lifetime.” Here, Danielle shares a bit more about the studio’s method.

How is it different from the standard yoga class you may find at a gym?

Most yoga classes are either fitness based or guru based. At Katonah, we teach you why and how to do the pose, what its benefits are, and how to use it to transform your body and your life. A huge piece of our theory is that one’s physiology informs their psychology, meaning how you live in your body influences how you’ll experience life.

What are the benefits?

Participating in a yoga practice increases circulation and oxygenation, flushes organs and glands, and strengthens and stretches the entire body. Here are some specific benefits related to each pose.

Crow pose

This balancing pose strengthens the arms, wrists, and upper back; tones the abdominal area; and requires full body integration!


Shin cradle

Strengthen and stretch hips, hamstrings, and calf muscles with this move. It’s great for people who sit a lot.


Forearm stand

This advanced move flips your perspective upside down, changes your relationship to gravity, takes pressure off your feet, and flushes your brain with blood and oxygen.

Batti Gul Meter Chalu song Dekhte Dekhte: Shahid Kapoor yearns for Shraddha Kapoor


By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: August 21, 2018 1:23:30 pm Shahid Kapoor in a still from the movie Batti Gul Meter Chalu Related News

Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Batti Gul Meter Chalus second song “Dekhte Dekhte” is out. Composed by Rochak Kohli, the song is a romantic number sung by Atif Aslam with lyrics by Manoj Muntashir. The track is a reworked version of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khans qawwali of the same name.

The video released by the makers features Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, where the former is seen pining for Shraddha and reminiscing about their times together. The track is a more modern take on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khans composition, and it pales in comparison with the original, as is the case with most recreated tracks or remixes. However, Atifs vocals elevate the song to a certain degree.

Batti Gul Meter Chalu highlights the issues of electricity theft in rural India. “I feel proud to be a part of this film. One would think it (electricity) is a small issue but it is not for others. As actors, if we can represent those issues, it would be good as we have the opportunity to say something nice otherwise we will lose the chance. We are not making a documentary film as it will never reach anywhere. So you have to make it entertaining and take mainstream actors so you can reach out to a wider audience,” Shahid had said at the trailer launch of the film.

The film stars Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma, Yami Gautam, Sudhir Pandey, Farida Jalal and Supriya Pilgaonkar in significant roles. Batti Gul Meter Chalu has been directed by Shree Narayan Singh.
