Shahid Kapoor unveils the trailer release date of Kabir Singh with a new poster
Shahid Kapoor is always a treat to watch. And after Batti Gul Meter Chalu he is coming back on the silver screen in and as Kabir Singh. The film is an official remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy. So far, the teaser and posters have garnered some significant amount of attention and ever since people have been waiting for the official trailer. Fortunately, the waiting will end at the beginning of next week on 13th May. This piece of information was shared by Shahid himself, over Instagram along with a new poster of the film. And the poster has only intensified the anticipation since it shows various avatars of his character. Apart from the classic Kabir Singh look bang in the middle, there is also him holding a dog, him chugging down a bottle of alcohol, him on the bike with the leading lady Kiara Advani and lastly a still of his resting his head on Kiara's lap. Looks like, we can expect a memorable performance by him and I say memorable because Shahid has proved his versatility time and time again, especially after a breathtaking performance in Haider. He really did get out of his comfort zone to play Kabir Singh because in a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror he said, “I don't endorse smoking whatsoever. However, the role required it as the protagonist has this angst and rage within him. It wasn't easy and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to 2 hours to freshen up before I returned home to my children." So there you have it, directed by Sandeep Vanga, the film is slated to release on June 21st but before that stay tuned for the trailer.

Aren't they just like a match made in heaven? Here's wishing them a happy anniversary and hoping to see many more shoefies.
Liverpool knocks Barcelona out of the Champions league
Last night was undoubtedly Liverpool's night after they made a spectacular comeback to the Champions league and knocked out Barcelona while doing so. And what made it even more insane than it already was, is that it was a clean sheet victory. The final score was 4 nil. After last week when Baracelona bagged a 3-0 victory at home, this was definitely unexpected. Despite Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino's injury and stepping off the field, Liverpool managed to net 4 goals. And this win made Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp call his side 'mentality giants.' And naturally, the Barcelona camp had a very gloomy vibe going which was evident in the pictures that followed the match. In fact, Leonel Messi had to immediately walk through a dope test and it took so long that the team bus left for the airport leaving him behind at Anfield. It just wasn't their day and Barca's midfielder Sergio Busquets acknowledge this through an apology by saying . ‘They have been better than us. I apologise. After what happened in Rome, this happened again. It’s tough to go out like this after the first-leg result. Liverpool has been smarter than us, they were faster. I think we had chances to score the goal we needed, but it wasn’t meant to be today,' and this was reported by Metro UK. And twitter being twitter turned into a meme factory post the match.

Lok Sabha elections 2019: Swara Bhaskar, Shabana Azmi, Sonakshi, and more campaign for candidates of their choice
This year the Lok Sabha elections are absolutely fascinating. And what makes this election season even more intriguing is how involved the celebrities of the film industry are, contesting, campaigning and what not. The fifth phase is officially over and with just three more phases remaining, there is some intense campaigning in play. Just a few hours ago, actor Swara Bhaskar, who happens to be a vocal critic of the BJP government, was seen campaigning New Delhi for Aam Aadmi Party candidate Atishi Marlean who is contesting against debutant politician and star cricketer Gautam Gambhir. And it's not just Atishi, but Swara has also been actively supporting various opposition candidates from AAP and left front, on social media as well. In fact, CPI candidates Kanhaiya Kumar and Amra Ram were also endorsed by her. But looks like Kanhaiya Kumar seems to have quite a bit of star power on his side since he received prominent support for the likes of Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi and Prakash Raj. While Javed Akhtar was recently addressing a packed gathering in Begusarai, Prakash Raj was seen in Delhi campaigning for AAP candidates Atishi Marelena, Brijesh Goyal and Delhi's CM Arvind Kejriwal. Apart from all the known personalities, veteran actor Dharmendra has two BJP candidates from his family. While his wife Hema Malini is hoping to get re-elected from the Mathura constituency, his son Sunny Deol is a new member contesting from Punjab's Gurdaspur. This is a massive moment for Dharmendra as he shares an old association with BJP and also happens to be a huge admirer of the late leader, Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Speaking of old association with BJP, actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha moved to Congress recently and his wife Poonam Sinha has joined the Samajwadi Party and contesting from Lucknow where her daughter Sonashki Sinha was seen recently campaigning for her mother. Man, with so much going around, it all seems really overwhelming but having said that, on 23rd May the country will have a revised government when the results come out.
