Anushka Sharma’s Emotional Post For – Latest news headlines


A day after Virat Kohli stepped down as India Test captain, Anushka Sharma took to social media and shared an emotional post for her husband, recalling his journey as the national team’s red-ball skipper. Taking to Instagram, she posted two photos. The Bollywood actor also opened up about the day when Kohli had first informed her that he would be taking up Test captaincy after MS Dhoni’s decision to retire from the format. “I remember the day in 2014 when you told me that you have been made the captain as MS had decided to retire from test cricket. I remember MS, you & I having a chat later that day & him joking about how quickly your beard will start turning grey. We all had a good laugh about it”, she wrote.

The actress went on to talk about Kohli’s growth as national team captain and as a human being, saying “I’m more proud of the growth you achieved within you”.

“Since that day, I’ve seen more than just your beard turning grey. I’ve seen growth. Immense growth. Around you & within you. And yes, I am very proud of your growth as the captain of the Indian National Cricket team & what achievements the team had under your leadership. But I’m more proud of the growth you achieved within you. In 2014 we were so young & naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive & motives can take you ahead in life. They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field.”

“But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most. And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions. You led by example & gave winning on field every ounce of your energy to the extent that after some losses I’ve sat next to you with tears in your eyes, while you wondered if there’s still something more you could have done.”

“This is who you are & this is what you expected from everyone. You’ve been unconventional & straightforward. Pretence is your foe & this is what makes you great in my eyes & the eyes of your admirers. Because underneath all this were your pure, unadulterated intentions always. And not everyone will be able to truly understand that.”

“Like I’ve said, truly blessed are those who tried to get to know you beneath what meets the eye. You are not perfect & have your flaws but then again when did you ever try to conceal that? What you did was to always stand up for doing the right thing, the harder thing, always! You held on to nothing with greed, not even this position & I know that. Because when one holds on to something so tightly they limit themselves & you, my love, are limitless. Our daughter will see the learning of these 7 years in the father that you are to her. You did good”.

Here is the post, which she shared on Instagram:

Kohli quit as Test captain on Saturday, a day after India’s 1-2 defeat to South Africa in a three-match red-ball series.

Kohli had earlier stepped down as India’s T20I captain after the T20 World Cup last year and was soon also removed from the ODI captaincy with BCCI appointing Rohit Sharma as full-time white-ball skipper in December.

Indian OTT Originals Reached Nearly 400 – Latest news headlines


With two-thirds of the year spent indoors thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, pretty much like last year, 2021 saw a continued rise in Indian original content from streaming services (or OTT platforms, if you prefer). There were massive spikes for the likes of Disney+ Hotstar and SonyLIV whose output increased by nearly 300 and over 200 percent, respectively. Movies that were originally meant for the big screen — starring the likes of Dhanush, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Mohanlal, Kartik Aaryan, Ajay Devgn, and Akshay Kumar — were shifted to streaming services, primarily the big two, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

The annual leader in quantity, Zee5, released fewer originals in 2021 than last year. Still, it continues to occupy that position with 53 originals this year, and is the only one to have produced a Pakistani original. Zee5 has some competition though, with both Hoichoi (47) and ShemarooMe (50) — appearing on our list for the first time — having a blockbuster year in quantity at the least. ShemarooMe’s place is more debatable though, as the platform loves to take existing titles and rebrand them as “world digital premieres”. Sure, it’s technically correct but some of its world digital premieres in 2021 were movies released theatrically years ago. We have excluded them, naturally.

Speaking of more important firsts, both Discovery+ and Lionsgate Play made their first originals in 2021. You can find those below along with nearly 400 originals produced by Indian OTT platforms this year. Things to keep in mind: Zee5 and ALTBalaji continued their co-production strategies, hence there are some overlaps in those two sections. And there are no Eros Now originals on the list, as the company declined to participate in our story. With that, here is the complete list of all streaming service originals from India in 2021.

Latest News Today – India Coronavirus Cases: India’s ‘R-Value’ Inching Up,


India has logged over 3.16 crore cases since the start of the pandemic.

New Delhi:

India’s ‘R-Value’ is inching up, and it’s a cause of concern, AIIMS Chief Dr Randeep Guleria told NDTV on Saturday, stressing on the need of aggressive containment strategies in the parts of the country that are witnessing a surge in fresh Covid infections. His remarks come amid concern over a third wave. 

“Starting from .96, and going all the way up to 1, the rise in R-Value is a cause of concern. Simply put, this means that the chances of infection spreading from a person, who has Covid, to others have gone up. The areas which are witnessing this surge should bring in restrictions and employ “test, track, and treat” strategy to break the chain of transmission,” Dr Guleria explained. The R-Factor or number shows the effective reproductive number of a virus.

India on Friday recorded 44,230 fresh infections, the highest single-day surge in three weeks. The fresh spike in cases has been worrying in Kerala and some northeastern states. Forty-six districts in the country have a positivity rate of more than 10 per cent, the government said on Saturday. 

This week, reports quoting the US health authority –  the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – said that Delta variant of the coronavirus may cause more severe illness than all other known versions of the virus and spread as easily as chickenpox.

Explaining this in Indian context, Dr Guleria said: “Measles or chicken pox used to have R factor of 8 or more, which means one person could infect eight others. That sort of suggests that this virus is highly infectious. We saw that in our second wave, because whole families were getting infected. This happens with chicken pox also. In a similar manner, when one person has Delta variant, the whole family is vulnerable.”

With nearly 50 per cent of fresh Covid cases coming from Kerala, there’s a need to evaluate the surge in infections, Dr Guleria further stressed. “In the beginning, Kerala had set a precedent for others by managing the pandemic well. They also had an aggressive vaccination drive. Yet despite that, are witnessing a spike in a way that’s different from other parts of the country. This needs to be evaluated. Also, is there a variant behind the surge? Are containment strategies being aggressively followed – all this needs to be evaluated,” the AIIMS chief explained.

Neighbouring states like Karnataka and Tamil Nadu also need to adopt aggressive testing strategy to break the chain of transmission, he added.

In Tamil Nadu, 66 per cent of people have developed anti-bodies, a recent sero survey showed. Yet the state has been witnessing a spike. The sero surveys, however, are not an indicator of herd immunity, Dr Guleria explained. “In Brazil, similar survey from a city showed 70 per cent of population had herd immunity. Yet we had a huge outbreak. We really don’t what’s the cut off in such cases, and also the antibodies gradually decrease over a period of time. It, however, shows that the chances of serious infections are lesser. For instance in Kerala, and UK, people are getting the infection, they may be spreading but they are not getting serious infection,” he said. 

India has logged over 3.16 crore cases so far, and 4.23 lakh people have died due to Covid.

Infinix Smart 5A smartphone is all set to launch in India on August 2, a Flipkart teaser page reveals. The teaser page also shows the design and specifications of the smartphone ahead of the official launch next week. It is likely going to be an offshoot model of the Infinix Smart 5 that was launched in India in February this year. Infinix Smart 5A’s battery, colour options, weight, and security lock features have been teased on the Flipkart page.

On the back, Infinix Smart 5A is seen to feature a rectangular-shaped camera module with dual rear camera sensors placed one below the other. There is another dummy cutout at the bottom of the two sensors with “AI” written on it, possibly showcasing the AI-enhanced capabilities of the phone’s camera setup. The flash sits right next to the camera sensors. The renders show a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on board. The Flipkart teaser also suggests that Infinix Smart 5A may come in Ocean Wave, Midnight Black, and Quetzal Cyan colour options.

Infinix Smart 5A is teased to feature a 6.52-inch HD+ IPS display with 500 nits brightness. The phone packs a 5,000mAh battery that claims to last for up to 19 hours of video playback, up to 28 hours of music playback, up to 13 hours of gaming time, up to 16 hours of Web surfing, up to 33 hours of 4G talk time, and up to 35 days of standby time.

Latest News Today – F9, The Suicide Squad, Bhuj: The Pride of India, and


Fast & Furious 9 (aka F9) and The Suicide Squad are the biggest international titles to watch this August — the first two are coming to (Indian) cinemas, two are already streaming (in the US) and the other will be. F9 released July 30 on-demand in the US, almost three weeks prior to its August 19 India release date. It was going to release earlier in India but got delayed by two weeks. The Suicide Squad is hitting India on August 5 in line with its global release date, with Warner hoping to avoid the major piracy situation that Universal finds itself in, with F9 being torrented widely. The Suicide Squad is out August 6 on HBO Max, after all. Speaking of superheroes, Marvel also has a new (animated) series in What If…? that begins August 11 on Disney+ Hotstar.

From India, there are a couple of pop patriotic war dramas for the Independence Day weekend. Amazon Prime Video rolls out Kargil War-set Shershaah, led by Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani, and produced by Karan Johar, on August 12. Disney+ Hotstar will follow it on August 13 with a tale from 1971 Indo-Pakistan War in Bhuj: The Pride of India, starring Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, and Sonakshi Sinha. Disney+ Hotstar also has a period drama in The Empire, about the rise and fall of the Mughal Empire, in August. If you are looking for more Indian content, Mani Ratnam presents a nine-film anthology called Navarasa, dropping August 6 on Netflix. Revathy, Parvathy, Anjali, Aditi Balan, Vijay Sethupathy, Arvind Swamy, Siddarth, Prakashraj, and Yogi Babu are among its massive cast.

For those looking for big names, August has Hugh Jackman in the sci-fi film Reminiscence available August 20 on HBO Max. It should come to Indian cinemas at the same time too. Emma Stone is Cruella in Cruella, out August 27 on Disney+ Hotstar. Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy lead a packed cast for Nine Perfect Strangers, which starts August 20 on Amazon Prime Video in India. Sandra Oh leads the cast of The Chair — Game of Thrones creators are involved — also out August 20 but on Netflix. On the same day on the same platform, Jason Momoa hunts for the truth and runs from big pharma in Sweet Girl. Meanwhile, Joseph Gordon-Levitt does everything (acting, writing, directing and producing) on his new Apple TV+ series Mr. Corman, premiering August 6.

There’s also Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 — the series’ final season starts in August and will air on Comedy Central in India. It’ll take a lot longer to reach streaming platforms. With that, here’s our August 2021 guide to Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, HBO Max, and Comedy Central.

The Suicide Squad

When: August 5 (India), August 6 (Streaming)
Where: Cinemas (India), HBO Max (USA)

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is at the helm of this soft reboot of what was originally a dumpster fire. There are a couple of survivors, chiefly Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, and Viola Davis. There’s a splattering of new faces alongside — many of whom will be killed off, as Gunn has already teased — in John Cena, Idris Elba, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, and a shark voiced by Sylvester Stallone.

Going by the trailers, Gunn seems to be doing what made him famous at Marvel, except he’s now operating in the rival DC camp (before he switches back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, coming May 2023). The Suicide Squad is available in cinemas a day prior to its one-month streaming run on HBO Max in the US.

Mr. Corman

When: August 6
Where: Apple TV+

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the star, writer, director and producer on this 10-episode dramedy about a 30-something failed musician now teaching fifth graders at a San Fernando Valley school in Los Angeles County. So far, so Soul. There’s even a dreamy sequence in the Mr. Corman trailer if you’re interested in stretching that Pixar comparison.

To add to Corman’s miseries, his fiancé (Juno Temple) broke up and moved out, while his high school friend (Arturo Castro) has taken her place at home. Still, Corman believes he’s lucky even as the feelings of anxiety and self-doubt are creeping in. Debra Winger, Logic, Hector Hernandez, Jamie Chung, and Shannon Woodward co-star.

Three Mr. Corman episodes drop on release date, with the remaining seven airing one per week until September 24.

When: August 6
Where: Netflix

Mani Ratnam spearheads this anthology of nine Tamil-language short films that finds nine directors tackling nine rasas, Tamil for emotions: anger (Arvind Swami), compassion (Bejoy Nambiar), courage (Sarjun), disgust (Vasanth S Sai), fear (Rathindran R Prasad), laughter (Priyadarshan), love (Gautham Vasudev Menon), peace (Karthik Subbaraj), and wonder (Karthick Naren). Everyone worked pro-bono on Navarasa to raise funds for those affected by COVID-19 in the Tamil cinema industry.

Revathy, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Anjali, Aditi Balan, Remya Nambeesan, Poorna, Prayaga Martin, Rythvika Suriya, Vijay Sethupathy, Arvind Swamy, Siddarth, Prakashraj, Yogi Babu, Prasanna, Atharva, Bobby Simha, Gautham Menon, Ashok Selvan, Nedumudi Venu, Delhi Ganesh, and Kishore are part of a 40-strong cast. All nine films will be available at once on release date.

Marvel’s What If…?

When: August 11
Where: Disney+ Hotstar

Marvel Studios’ first anthology animated series is all about asking big what-if questions: What if Peggy Carter took the Super Soldier serum? What if T’Challa ended up as Star-Lord? What if Killmonger came to Tony Stark’s rescue in Afghanistan? As you can tell, What If…? is all about exploring the multiverse of possibilities — is this why it’s coming on the heels of Loki? — triggered by a big decision.

As you can tell, none of these hypothetical events will have any effect on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Still, much of the cast is involved, including Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Brolin, Sebastian Stan, Natalie Portman, Michael Douglas, Karen Gillan, Jeff Goldblum, Michael B. Jordan, and the late Chadwick Boseman.

What If…? season 1 has 10 episodes in total. One new episode every Wednesday until October 13.

Shershaah

When: August 12
Where: Amazon Prime Video

Say hello to India’s The Lion King. No, that doesn’t mean what you think it does. It’s the direct translation of the war film’s title, an acknowledgement of how Indian Army Captain Vikram Batra was referred to by the enemy, Pakistan, during the 1999 Kargil War. Batra was posthumously awarded India’s highest military honour, the Param Vir Chakra, for his actions.

Siddharth Malhotra plays Batra in this biopic directed by Vishnuvardhan (Arrambam) who makes his Hindi-language debut, and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Shershaah is the second consecutive biopic on a Kargil war vet for Dharma, following last year’s Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl that was sold to Netflix. Hopefully, it too won’t give into jingoism.

Kiara Advani, Shiv Pandit, Niktin Dheer, Himmanshoo A. Malhotra, Anil Charanjeett, Sahil Vaid, Raj Arjun, Ankita Goraya, Rakesh Dubey, Pranay Singh Pachauri, Pawan Chopra, Mir Sarwar, and Shataf Figar are also part of the Shershaah cast.

Bhuj: The Pride of India

When: August 13
Where: Disney+ Hotstar

Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Nora Fatehi, and Sharad Kelkar lead the cast of this Gujarat-based war drama that chronicles the efforts of an IAF Squadron Leader (Devgn) and 300 local women (Sinha among them) who helped rebuild the carpet-bombed Bhuj airbase during the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War. Ammy Virk, Pranitha Subhash, and Ihana Dhillon are also part of the cast.

Soap opera veteran Abhishek Dudhaiya makes his feature-length directorial debut on Bhuj: The Pride of India, working off a screenplay he co-wrote with Raman Kumar, Ritesh Shah, and Pooja Bhavoria. That television legacy is visible in the Bhuj trailer, though to be fair, most Bollywood war dramas are this combination of cringe dialogues and …dance sequences.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

When: August TBA
Where: Comedy Central

10-8. No that’s not a cop code — it’s the number of episodes (10) in the eighth and final season of this beloved sitcom. That’s a reduced run for what used to be a 22-episode series, having progressively declined in episode count during its NBC years. The network is also switching up its release schedule: there will be two back-to-back episodes every week, for five weeks.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 has also been reworked in parts, following the George Floyd protests against racism and police brutality, with Terry Crews revealing that they scrapped four completed episodes altogether. The cast is still the same though, with Crews alongside Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Andre Braugher.

CODA

When: August 13
Where: Apple TV+

Apple paid a festival-record $25 million (about Rs. 185 crores) for this Sundance-winning remake of the 2014 French comedy-drama La Famille Bélier. It’s about a 17-year-old girl (Emilia Jones) who’s the only hearing member in her deaf fishing family. Hence, the title: CODA, Child of Deaf Adults. Caught between helping her family business under threat and her love of singing, she must decide what to do.

Eugenio Derbez, Troy Kotsur, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Daniel Durant, Amy Forsyth, Kevin Chapman, and Marlee Matlin co-star. CODA director Sian Heder (Tallulah) was also honoured for her work at Sundance.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

When: August 13
Where: Cinemas

James Wan’s Conjuring franchise continues to be inspired by real-life cases as Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigators take on their first murder case, the 1981 trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson (played here by Ruairi O’Connor) in which she claimed demonic possession as a defence. Essentially, that the Devil made me do it. Oh look, that’s also the title. What a coincidence.

Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona) is the director, working off a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (The Conjuring 2, Aquaman). The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It released in June on HBO Max and in US theatres, and belatedly makes its way to India as cinemas reopen following the second wave of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Modern Love

When: August 13
Where: Amazon Prime Video

Kit Harington, Anna Paquin, Tobias Menzies, Garrett Hedlund, Dominique Fishback, Lucy Boynton, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Susan Blackwell, Minnie Driver, Nikki M. James, Aparna Nancherla, Sophie Okonedo, Ben Rappaport, Jack Reynor, Lulu Wilson, Zuzanna Szadkowski, and Miranda Richardson are part of the massive cast for the second season of this rom-com anthology created by John Carney (Sing Street).

Fast & Furious 9

When: August 19 (India), TBA (On-demand)
Where: Cinemas (India), Video-on-demand (USA)

It’s time for family — nearly three months late. Having grossed over $600 million (about Rs. 4,462 crores) since its May debut internationally, the ninth chapter of The Fast Saga finally rolls into Indian cinemas. But if you’re worried about being in an enclosed space with strangers, Fast & Furious 9 has already arrived on-demand in the US. For some, it’s a safer albeit expensive alternative, and for others (who live where cinemas haven’t reopened) the only way to watch it right now.

Plot is not a thing anyone cares about with a Fast & Furious title, so I’ll just leave you with the names of those whose faces you will see: Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, John Cena, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron. Fast Five director Justin Lin is back behind the camera.

Nine Perfect Strangers

When: August 18 (USA), August 20 (India)
Where: Hulu (USA), Amazon Prime Video (India)

Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley is back at it, adapting another Liane Moriarty novel. He’s joined by Nicole Kidman who here plays a mysterious Russian host of a health and wellness resort in Australia. She’s fielding the titular nine strangers, played by Melissa McCarthy, Luke Evans, Samara Weaving, Michael Shannon, Regina Hall, and Bobby Cannavale among others.

They have gathered for a 10-day retreat that turns out to be a lot more, as they discover secrets about each other and the host (Kidman). Jonathan Levine (50/50) directs all eight episodes that will stream weekly Wednesdays on Hulu, and Friday on Prime Video. Three episodes upon premiere, with the five remaining airing one every week until September 22.

The Chair

When: August 20
Where: Netflix

Sandra Oh is the first woman chair of the English department at a fictional American university in this six-episode half-hour dramedy that also marks the first Netflix original involving Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (as part of their huge $200-million deal, about Rs. 1,487 crores today). The Chair trailer suggests that Oh’s newly-installed head has to deal with the messes of those who came before her, some of which feel #MeToo-tinged.

Jay Duplass, Holland Taylor, Bob Balaban, David Morse, Nana Mensah, and Everly Carganilla are also part of The Chair cast. Amanda Peet and Annie Julia-Wyman created the series, with Peet also serving as showrunner. Oh, Benioff and Weiss are executive producers. All episodes at once on release date.

Reminiscence

When: August 20
Where: HBO Max

In near-future climate change-ravaged Miami, Hugh Jackman plays a war veteran who offers his clients the choice to relive any memory they want. His life is upended after he discovers through someone else’s memories that the mysterious woman (Rebecca Ferguson) he’s been sleeping with might be involved in a series of violent crimes. And then she goes missing, forcing him to go looking for her.

Thandiwe Newton, Cliff Curtis, Marina de Tavira, Daniel Wu, Mojean Aria, Brett Cullen, Natalie Martinez, Angela Sarafyan, and Nico Parker also star. Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy makes her feature-length directorial debut. The Reminiscence trailer has been compared to the works of Christopher Nolan, which suggests at this point that love for this kind of storytelling runs in the family. Joy is Nolan’s sis-in-law.

Reminiscence will be available on HBO Max for the first month at the same time as it’s in cinemas. Not confirmed for Indian cinemas yet, but expected given Warner Bros. is rolling out three films in the three weeks prior.

Sweet Girl

When: August 20
Where: Netflix

After a pharma giant pulls a live-saving drug off the shelves just before his wife (Adria Arjona) dies of cancer, Aquaman star Jason Momoa publicly vows to bring justice to those responsible. Apparently, big pharma doesn’t mess around. They send men with guns after the widower (Momoa) and his daughter (Isabela Merced) who are forced to go on the run.

Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Raza Jaffrey, Lex Scott Davis, Michael Raymond-James, and Amy Brenneman also star. Brian Andrew Mendoza is the director on Sweet Girl, working off a screenplay by Philip Eisner, Gregg Hurwitz, and Will Staples.

Truth Be Told

When: August 20
Where: Apple TV+

Kate Hudson is the big new face for the second season of what feels like an anthology series now, as true crime podcaster Poppy Parnell (Octavia Spencer) sets her sight on a new case: that of media mogul and her childhood friend Micah Keith (Kate Hudson). Poppy claims she wants to help Micah, by pushing for justice on a public forum (her podcast). But at what cost — both personal and professional — will that come for Micah? Merle Dandridge is also new to Truth Be Told season 2 cast.

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf

When: August 23
Where: Netflix

Before Henry Cavill returns as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher season 2 in December, Netflix is expanding the Continent with this anime prequel spin-off movie that follows his mentor Vesemir (voiced by Theo James here, and to be played by Kim Bodnia in The Witcher season 2) during his glory days. We also have Lara Pulver as Tetra, Graham McTavish as Deglan, and Mary McDonnell as Lady Zerbst.

The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrisch is the producer on The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Kwang Il Han directs off a screenplay written by Beau DeMayo.

Cruella

When: August 27
Where: Disney+ Hotstar

Emma Stone steps into Disney’s origin story of the dalmatian fur-loving Cruella de Vil as a grifter and an aspiring fashion designer named Estella — this live-action reboot loves making stitches of its own — who takes aim at her boss and London’s prestigious fashion house chief Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson). Aiding her in her exploits are thieving brothers Jasper (Joel Fry) and Horace Badun (Paul Walter Hauser).

Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Mark Strong, and John McCrea also star. Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) directs Cruella. Dana Fox and Tony McNamara provide the screenplay. Cruella released in late May on Disney+ Premier Access, and now that it’s exiting the premium tier, it’s available on Disney+ Hotstar.

The second title for Momoa in August is the second season of this post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama where humanity cannot see. Guardians of the Galaxy and Army of the Dead star Dave Bautista is new to See season 2 as Momoa’s on-screen nemesis brother, alongside Joe Flanigan, Eden Epstein, Tom Mison, Hoon Lee, Olivia Cheng, David Hewlett and Tamara Tunie. Sylvia Hoeks, Hera Hilmar, Christian Camargo, and Alfre Woodard are part of the returning cast opposite Momoa.

The Empire

When: August TBA
Where: Disney+ Hotstar

HBO might be making Game of Thrones prequels that will come to Disney+ Hotstar, but meanwhile, the network is showing similar (local-level) ambitions of its own. Batla House director Nikkhil Advani is behind this epic undertaking that aims to chronicle the rise and the fall of the Mughal Empire — it spanned two centuries and stretched from Afghanistan to the Deccan plateau — from Babur to Aurangzeb.

Kunal Kapoor is set as a young Babur who turned his eyes towards India after facing repeated defeats in what is modern-day Uzbekistan. That brings him in clash with the Sultan of Delhi Ibrahim Lodi (Dino Morea) and thereafter the Mewar kingdom led by Rana Sanga (Srijan Srivastava). Drashti Dhami plays Babur’s elder sister Khanzada Begum, and Shabana Azmi is Babur’s grandmother Esan Daulat.

Latest News Today – Ben Stokes Takes Indefinite Break From Cricket “To

England’s Ben Stokes is to take an indefinite break from all forms of cricket to “prioritise his mental well-being”, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced Friday, with the all-rounder the latest high-profile sports star to step away from the pressures of competition. Stokes has withdrawn from England’s Test squad ahead of a five-match series against India starting at Trent Bridge next week, with his place taken by Craig Overton. “The England and Wales Cricket Board can confirm that Ben Stokes will take an indefinite break from all cricket with immediate effect,” said a statement from the governing body.

“Stokes has withdrawn from England’s Test squad ahead of the Test series against India starting next week to prioritise his mental wellbeing and to rest his left index finger, which has not fully healed since his return to competitive cricket earlier this month.”

The 30-year-old Stokes rushed back to lead England in a one-day international series at home to Pakistan after all those originally selected were ruled out by a coronavirus outbreak within the hosts’ camp.

The ECB said they fully supported Stokes’ decision and would continue to help him during his time away from the game, with their managing director of men’s cricket, Ashley Giles, saying: “Ben has shown tremendous courage to open up about his feelings and wellbeing.

“Our primary focus has always been and will continue to be the mental health and welfare of all of our people. The demands on our athletes to prepare and play elite sport are relentless in a typical environment, but the ongoing pandemic has acutely compounded this.”

Stokes’s decision comes just days after American superstar gymnast Simone Biles pulled out of two events at the Tokyo Olympics to protect her mental health.

The 24-year-old’s struggles followed those of Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka, another face of the Games who lost in the third round on her return from a mental health break.

Osaka withdrew from the French Open after refusing to take part in press conferences, claiming they are akin to “kicking people when they are down”.

She also skipped Wimbledon before returning in Tokyo where she lit the Olympic cauldron at the opening ceremony.

Latest News Today – India Reports Most New Covid Cases In 3 Weeks As R-Value


More than 45.55 crore vaccine doses have been administered in the country so far.

New Delhi:

India’s Covid graph continued to show an upward trend as the country reported 44,230 new cases on Friday, the most in three weeks, amid fears of another wave of infections. The spread of the disease – which had eased off after a peak of four lakh daily cases in May – has forced at least one state to lock down while movement restrictions are in place in some northeastern states reporting a rise in infection rates.

The R-factor, which indicates the speed at which COVID-19 infection is spreading in the country, has inched up in the past week with Kerala and the Northeastern states reporting a steady rise in cases.

Kerala has been reporting over 22,000 cases for three days now and accounts for more than 37 per cent of India’s active cases, according to government sources. The southern state continues to have an R-value around 1.11.

An R-value of 0.95 means, every 100 infected people on an average pass on the infection to 95 other individuals. If the R-value is lesser than one, it means the number of newly infected people is lower than the number of infected people in the preceding period which means the disease incidence is going down.

“Looks like it will remain in the top spot for the next couple of weeks. The Northeast continues to have a very bad situation with most states having R-value more than one,” Sitabhra Sinha of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, who is leading the team that analysed the R-value, was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

The spike in infections in Kerala has forced the Centre to send a team for effective COVID-19 management there. 

Neighbouring Karnataka on Thursday recorded a steep spike in Covid cases. The southern state reported 2,052 new cases, 34 per cent more than Wednesday’s tally of 1,531. At least 505 cases were reported from state capital Bengaluru.

The government estimates that 67.6 per cent of the 1.35 billion population already have antibodies against the coronavirus. More than 45.55 crore vaccine doses have been administered in the country so far, according to the health ministry.

When the second wave of the COVID-19 infection was at its peak, the overall R-value in the country was estimated to be 1.37 between March 9 to April 21. It declined to 1.18 between April 24 and May 1 and then to 1.1 between April 29 and May 7, according to the analysis.

Between May 9 and 11, the R-value was estimated to be around 0.98. It dropped to 0.82 between May 14 and May 30 and further to 0.78 from May 15 to June 26. The R-value however rose to 0.88 from June 20 to July 7 and then to 0.95 from July 3-22.

Nearly 194 million people are affected by COVID-19 worldwide, the World Health Organisation said, adding that infections have risen by 8 per cent in the last week. The number of coronavirus deaths globally jumped by 21 per cent during the period, it said. Most of the 69,000 deaths were reported in the Americas and Southeast Asia.
