URI - The Surgical Strike bags a second place in IMDB's Top Rated Indian Movies of all times

Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is refusing to slow down at the Box Office. The film has already crossed the 200 crore mark and became the first blockbuster of 2019. 

Owing to the box office success, URI – The Surgical Strike bags a second place with 8.6 rating in IMDB’s Top Rated Indian Movies of all times after 1971’s flick Anand. 

URI – The Surgical Strike becomes the second Bollywood film after 1971’s Anand to bag it’s place in IMDB’s Top Rated Indian Movies of all times. 

The film is currently in its sixth week of release and has so far remained unaffected despite new films coming on the block. Its total collection, after a glorious 40-day run, has reached Rs 228.77 crore. 

URI is based on the 2016 Indian army’s surgical strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan in retaliation for the terror attack on an Army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir. 

Bringing to screen one of the biggest events in the history of Indian Army, Aditya Dhar’s directorial URI depicts the reality behind the surgical strike by Indian Army on Pakistan. 

Starring Vicky Kaushal in the lead role, Ronnie Screwvala, URI is his first action packed film which also boasts of an ensemble cast, including Mohit Raina, Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, and Kirti Kulhari amongst others.

Can Samantha taste it at least now?

The pretty Samantha, began her career in Tamil, with Cinematographer Ravivarman’s debut Directorial Moscowin cauvery, opposite Rahul Ravindran, which went on to be a disaster and followed it with yet another failure, Baana Kaathadi opposite Atharva Murali.

Can Samantha taste it at least now?

However, though Kollywood gave her a cold response, Tollywood welcomed her happily, and with the super successful Ye maaya chesave by Gautham Vasudev Menon, opposite her love Nag Chaitanya, she got the recognition she deserved, besides numerous hits that followed later like Eega, Dookudu, Brindavanam, Atharintiki Dhaaredhi, Manam to name a few.

Little do people know that Samantha was actually supposed to make her Bollywood Debut too, way back in 2013 itself, as her mentor Gautham Menon had made a Trilingual in Tamil/Telugu/Hindi, with Sam playing the lead in all 3 Versions. While the Telugu and Tamil versions – Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu and Neethaane En Ponvasantham with Nani and Jiiva respectively, got released to lukewarm response, the Hindi version Assi Nabbe Poore Sau opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor was shot and was left unreleased for unknown reasons, thus stopping Samantha’s Bolly entry.

However, it has been confirmed that Sam will indeed make her Bollywood debut soon and that will be a prestigious project produced by Ronnie Screwvala of UTV productions. Let’s see, if the Tollywood princess can taste success in Bollywood as well with her beauty and performance.

Instead of boycotting Pakistan, play and defeat them in World Cup 2019, says Sunil Gavaskar

Instead of boycotting Pakistan, play and defeat them in World Cup 2019, says Sunil Gavaskar
Show you are serious about building a ‘naya’ Pakistan else lose goodwill in India forever: Gavaskar to Imran Khan

While cricketers like Harbhajan Singh, Sourav Ganguly and Mohammad Azharuddin said that India should boycott playing Pakistan during World Cup 2019 in the wake of Pulwama terror attack, Sunil Gavaskar has a totally different stand on the issue.

Gavaskar believes that instead of snubbing the match against Pakistan, India should play and defeat them. “Pushing for boycotting Pakistan in the World Cup won’t work, other countries won’t agree. And if we don’t play them in the WC, we are the losers. Play them and defeat them is the best way,” Gavaskar told India Today in an exclusive interview.

Gavaskar also said that former cricketer and current Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has a nice opportunity to show the world that it’s a new Pakistan under his government. “Imran Khan needs to take the first step to show friendship, only then India can respond, he needs to show us that this is a ‘naya’ Pakistan he promised, ball is in his court,” he added.

Gavaskar also said that Imran Khan should handover Masood Azhar, who is the chief of terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) which is responsible for the Pulwama terror attack, to India or UN. “I am telling my friend Imran Khan today, act against terror in your country, hand over Masood Azhar to us or the UN, show you are serious about building a ‘naya’ Pakistan else lose goodwill in India forever,” he added.

Asteroid tracker: Asteroid big enough to BLOCK OUT STARS will pass TOMORROW

Asteroid Jurgenstock will fly past the Earth on Tuesday, February 19, briefly blotting out the brightest star in the sky. Seen from Earth, the asteroid will appear to hurtle directly in front of the binary star system of Sirius A. According to the International Occultation Timing Association (IOTA), this will cause the star to momentarily vanish from sight. The moment of so-called occultation is expected to occur around 5.30am GMT (UTC) on Tuesday, or 10.30pm MST on Monday, February 18.

Such occultations are typically the perfect opportunity for astronomers to get a glimpse of an asteroid’s shape and size.

Sirius A is the brightest star of the night sky and is almost twice as bright as the next brightest star, Canopus.

The star is accompanied by a faint white dwarf, dubbed Sirius B, and is roughly twice the size of our Sun.

Astronomers believe the star is slowly hurtling toward our system, meaning it will gradually increase in brightness.

Tomorrow, however, the star will appear to blink in and out of existence as Asteroid Jurgenstock completes its lap around the Sun.

David Dunham of IOTA, said in a statement: “If you are the lucky one to have the path go over your location, the star will fade over a period of several tenths of a second, probably will not disappear completely, and then will recover its full brightness over another several tenths of a second.

“But it could be a shallow drop in brightness lasting perhaps only half asecond,if you are near the edge of the path.

“The angular diameter of Sirius has been measured to be 0.0060”, so theoretically, with Jurgenstock’s diameter just a little more – 0.007” – at the actual centre of the shadow, the start of the fade to the recovery to full brilliance should take 1.8 seconds, with the star completely occulted for 0.2 seconds.

“But the asteroid may be a little larger or smaller than predicted, and it’s likely to be irregularly-shaped, so there is a good chance that even at the centre, the star will not completely disappear.”

IOTA’s occultation maps show the brief moment of the asteroid’s passage will be mostly visible over open water in the Pacific Ocean.

However, a few lucky observers might be able to spot the incredible phenomenon from remote parts of Chile, Argentina and Panama.

IOTA said updated path calculations show Sirius A might also darken over parts of the Caribbean.

Asteroid Jurgenstock is a giant space rock estimated to measure an impressive 2.9 miles in diameter (4.7km).

The asteroid was discovered in 1964 by astronomers at the Indiana University in Indiana, US.

Named after its founder, the German-Venezuelan astronomer Jürgen Stock, the asteroid is believed to orbit the Sun once every three years and seven months.

Based on data collected by US space agency NASA, the asteroid will make a close approach to the dwarf planet Iris in early July, 2041.

Thankfully, at no point will the space rock make a close approach to Earth.

Cricket World Cup undergoes several changes in its 44-year history

Cricket World Cup undergoes several changes in its 44-year history

New Delhi, Feb 21: Since its inception in 1975, the ICC World Cup has witnessed several changes. While defending champions Australia are the most successful nation with five titles, India and West Indies have two each, and Pakistan and Sri Lanka one World Cup each.

The first three One-Day International (ODI) World Cups were hosted by England, the inventor of the game. The matches comprised 60 overs per innings, played in the day light in traditional form, with players wearing cricket whites and using red balls.

The first tournament saw eight teams compete for top honours. Apart from the six Test playing nations at the time — India, Australia, England, New Zealand, Pakistan and the West Indies — Sri Lanka and a composite team from East Africa also took part.

South Africa were banned from international cricket at that time due to apartheid.

West Indies won the inaugural title, defeating Australia by 17 runs in the final.

Ahead of the 1979 World Cup, the ICC Trophy was introduced to select non-Test playing teams for the tournament, which saw Sri Lanka and Canada qualify.

The West Indies defended their crown, this time defeating hosts England by 92 runs in the final at the iconic Lords.

By the time the 1983 World Cup came around, Sri Lanka had achieved the Test playing nation status. Zimbabwe qualified for the tournament through the ICC Trophy.

The tournament also saw introduction of 30-yard fielding circle from the stumps and required four fielders inside it. It also saw a round-robin format with teams facing each other twice before moving into the knock-outs.

The tournament ended in glory for India, considered to be rank outsiders ahead of the tourney. Led by legendary Kapil Dev, the Indians stunned two-time defending champions and title favourites West Indies by 43 runs in the final.

In 1987, the competition moved out of England to be jointly hosted by India and Pakistan. The matches were reduced from 60 to 50 overs per innings. Australia won the first of their five titles, defeating England by seven runs in the final. It is the closest margin in the history of the World Cup final.

The 1992, World Cup was co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand. The International Cricket Council (ICC) introduced a host of changes, including coloured clothing, white balls, day-night matches and different fielding restrictions.

With the end of the apartheid regime and the international sports boycott, South Africa made their debut at the 1992 World Cup.

Led by Imran Khan and spear-headed by the legendary fast bowling duo — Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis — the mercurial Pakistan team endured a difficult start before making a dramatic turnaround to eventually defeat England by 22 runs in the final.

In 1996, the World Cup was held in the Indian subcontinent for a second time, with the inclusion of Sri Lanka as host for some of its group stage matches.

Hosts India were eliminated in controversial circumstances in the semi-finals. The Sri Lankans were cruising to a comfortable victory as India were struggling at 120/8 while chasing a 252-run target. Unhappy at India’s performance, the Edens Gardens crowd erupted in protest. The match had to be called off and the Sri Lanka adjudged winners by default.

Sri Lanka went on to win their maiden championship by defeating Australia by seven wickets in the final at Lahore.

England again hosted the World Cup in 1999, which saw 12 teams in action. Some matches were also held in Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the Netherlands.

Australia qualified for the semi-finals after reaching their target in Super 6 match against South Africa off the final over of the match. They then proceeded to the final with a tied match in the semi-final also against South Africa where a mix-up between South African batsmen Lance Klusener and Allan Donald saw Donald drop his bat and stranded mid-pitch to be run out.

In the final, Australia bundled out Pakistan for 132 and reached the target in less than 20 overs and with eight wickets in hand.

South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya hosted the 2003 World Cup. The number of teams participating in the event increased to 14.

Kenya surprised critics by reaching the semi-finals, thanks to upset victory over Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, and a match forfeiture by New Zealand who refused to play in the east African nation due to security concerns.

Australia won the title in style by blowing away India’s challenge in the final. Batting first, Australia made 359 runs for the loss of two wickets, the largest ever total in a final and defeated India by 125 runs.

West Indies hosted the tournament in 2007, which was expanded to sixteen teams.

The Pakistan team were involved in an unseemly controversy as their coach Bob Woolmer was found dead in his hotel room after an upset loss to World Cup debutant Ireland in a group stage match. The Jamaican police had initially launched a murder investigation into death, but later confirmed that Woolmer died due to heart failure.

Australia completed a hat-trick of World Cup titles by defeating Sri Lanka by 53 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method in the final. They also extended their undefeated run in the World Cup to 29 matches.

In 2011, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh jointly hosted the World Cup. Pakistan were stripped of their hosting rights following the terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team in Lahore in 2009, with the games originally scheduled for Pakistan redistributed to the other host countries.

The number of teams participating in the World Cup was reduced to 14. India won their second World Cup title by beating Sri Lanka by six wickets in the final in Mumbai. The men in blue thus became the first country to win the title at home.

The 2015 World Cup was jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand. New Zealand entered their first final by beating South Africa in the semi-finals. Australia took their fifth title by defeating the Kiwis by seven wickets in the final.

The upcoming World Cup will start on May 30 in England and Wales with the final at The Lord’s on July 14.

On day of Pulwama attack, Modi was shooting for a propaganda film: Congress

On day of Pulwama attack, Modi was shooting for a propaganda film: Congress

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi continued shooting for a film in the Corbett National Park for his “propaganda and publicity” till the evening of February 14 despite the Pulwama attack taking place in the afternoon that day, the Congress on Thursday alleged, citing reports in a section of the media.

There was no immediate reaction from the Prime Minister’s Office and the BJP over the allegations.

The opposition party also accused BJP president Amit Shah of “politicization of terrorism” in his speech in Assam following the attack in which 40 CRPF jawans died after a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into the paramilitary force’s convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama.

Shah, while addressing a public rally at Lakhimpur in Assam, had said that the sacrifices of the 40 CRPF personnel will not go in vain as there is a BJP government at the Centre now and it, unlike the previous Congress dispensation, will not “compromise” on any security issue.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, addressing a press conference, launched an all-out attack on the government and the prime minister over the Pulwama terror strike.

In his hunger for power, the prime minister has forgotten “raj dharma” (duty of governance), he alleged.

Citing media reports in Hindi news papers, Surjewala gave a timeline of events saying the the terror attack happened at 3:10 PM on February 14 with the Congress reacting at 5:15 PM.

“The prime minister also knew about it, yet the PM, a person who claims himself to be a pseudo nationalist, continues to shoot a film (for Discovery channel) for self propagation in Corbett National Park in Ramnagar,” he claimed.

He alleged that the prime minister continued to “enjoy boat rides” with the camera crew and later ensured that there is slogan shouting by BJP people in his favour there.

“The prime minister continues to eat chai, samosas at seven o’ clock at government expense in a PWD guest house when every single Indian household didn’t eat their food,” the Congress spokesperson said.

On one hand the country was picking up the “pieces of our martyrs”, on the other hand the prime minister was doing his “propaganda and publicity”, he claimed.

“Can such conduct be expected from the prime minister of a country. The prime minister should have been chairing the cabinet committee on security immediately and should have taken action, instead of shooting films,” he said.

Surjewala said that the Congress party had shown restrain as directed by party president Rahul Gandhi, but it was important to raise issues of such conduct that “insults martyrs”.

“The Congress party and the entire nation stands united with our armed forces as also our government in every step that they take in tackling Pakistan-sponsored terrorism. We are determined in that resolve even today,” he said.

The Congress leader said that questions must be asked about the gross intelligence failure of this government and on the “priorities of a prime minister who on a sensitive time like this has gone on a foreign tour to South Korea instead of tackling terrorism”.

Pervez Musharraf accepts Jaish involvement in Pulwama attack; says, ‘no fire in Modi’s heart for martyrs’

Pervez Musharraf accepts Jaish involvement in Pulwama attack; says, ‘no fire in Modi’s heart for martyrs’

Days after deadly suicide bomber attack on CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, former Pakistan president General Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday condemned terror attack in which over 40 security personnel were killed. Musharraf also backed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan against India’s allegations, but on the other hand, he also accepted that Jaish-e-Mohammed involvement in Pulwama terror attack.

Jaish involvement in Pulwama attack:

“The Pulwama attack is condemnable. Jaish-e-Mohammed could have been involved in the attack. They had also tried to kill me once,” Musharraf told India Today TV.

India blames Pakistan for Pulwama attack:

Musharraf, however, backed Imran Khan government in Pakistan and said that it was the Jaish-e-Mohammed that is to blame and not Pakistan government. “India has been wrongly accusing Pakistan over everything. It’s time you stopped it,” Musharraf

“The Pulwama terror attack was sad. Extremely terrible. There’s no doubt about it. And I have no sympathy for Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar. He had tried to kill me too. But that doesn’t prove that Pakistan government was involved in it,” Musharraf said.

“I don’t think Imran Khan should or will have any sympathy for Jaish. And I don’t believe Pakistan government was involved in it,” Musharraf added.

No Real Emotion for Jawans:

Further Musharraf went on to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he did not have any “real emotion” for the CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama attack. “Modi ke dil mein inn logon ke liye koi aag nahin hai. Agar hoti toh woh pehle woh Kashmir ka maslaa suljhaatey,” he said.

2016 Surgical Strike a farce:

While India claims of surgical strikes in 2016 after Uri attack, former Pakistan president refuted the whole idea. “You keep telling us that. But let me tell you it is all but a farce. There was no surgical strike carried out. We don’t buy this idea at all,” he said.

Post Pulwama incident whole country is demanding for another surgical strike against terrorism. On February 14 Pulwama terror attack over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives.

Black hole WARNING: How ‘human body could be RIPPED APART by spaghettification’

A black hole is a region of spacetime with such strong gravitational force that nothing, not even light, can escape from its depths. Jocelyn Burnell, an astrophysicist from Northern Ireland, warned in 2001, how this mysterious force could mark the end of mankind. Ms Burnell, 75, revealed how in the event of a black hole sucking up Earth, humans would be ripped apart in a process known as spaghettification.

Also known as the noodle effect, this process includes the verticle stretching and the horizontal compression of objects, caused by extreme tidal forces.

Ms Burnell told Radio 4 listeners in 2001: “If we fell into a black hole, a star-sized black hole, the first thing that would happen is we would begin to feel our bodies being pulled apart.

“Not only is gravity strong inside a black hole, but the gradient of gravity is low also.

“It would ultimately rip things apart in the most unpleasant manner – spaghettification.

“You would get long and thin – you become stranded.

“It would not be pleasant at all.”

Before his death in 1955, Albert Einstein argued that a person’s “spaghettified” remains would stay in the black hole, stretching until they were nothing but atoms.

However, not all scientists agree.

Spaghettification would stretch humans out (Image: WIKI)

In the 1970s, Stephen Hawking said that black holes slowly evaporate, making everything inside them disappear.

More recently though, physicist Joe Polchinski and his colleagues theorised that there was no inside to a black hole at all.

instead, they claim a black hole is simply a rip in the fabric of the universe, meaning you come to the end of space and life.

In December last year, scientist Fabio Pascucci sent out a warning over a supermassive black hole at the centre of the universe.

Steven Hawking was an avid researcher of black holes (Image: GETTY)

He detailed how the huge structure is growing in size by swallowing matter and merging with other black holes that it comes in contact with.

Currently, Earth is orbiting it at a safe distance, 25,000 light-years away.

However, that could change if the Milky Way galaxy collides with another, potentially sending our planet toppling towards a black hole.
