Hott Bollywood Actors You Need to Know

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA. I’ve been busy writing wonderful pieces for other amazing sites. I’ve left you without a Man Crush Monday, a Zaddy of the Week or a Man Crush Weekly for far too long. So instead of giving you one, I’m giving you 4. I would like to dedicate this thirsty piece to a few Indian actors I’ve seen in Bollywood films. It’s an excuse for me to talk about hott guys, but to also put a spotlight on men who don’t get recognized as much in the U.S..

South Asia tends to get left out of the conversation when it comes to the AM in AMBW. South Asia is also left out of the conversation in the United States when it comes to Asia. Here in the U.S., when Asian men have a role they aren’t the love interest. Even if the Asian man amongst his cast members is the hotter option, he is made to look like the unattractive guy with the stereotypical accent. I’m here to possibly change your mind about the beauty of men of color. So without further ado, 4 reason you should watch Bollywood films. 

Varun DhawanScreenshot_20190730-132526

According to Forbes India’s Celebrity 100, he is one of the country’s highest-paid actors since 2014. Not only is he reportedly rolling in the big bucks, but he is also undeniably hott. Bollywood royalty is in his blood as he is the son of David Dhawan, an Indian film director. His brother, Rohit Dhawan, is also in the business as a film director and his uncle Anil Dhawan is an actor. He debuted in 2012, in the film Student of the Year

Vicky Kaushal

Screenshot_20190730-132659I first saw him in Bollywood films on Netflix such as Lust Stories and Love per Square Foot. As well as a host of other films that I can’t spell without looking them up. However, for Vicky I will learn Hindi and tell you every last one (insert Lol here). Vicky Kaushal is yet another Indian actor born to a Hindi director, Sham Kaushal. He went on to play minor characters before his big break with supporting roles in two of the highest-grossing Hindi films in 2018, Raazi and Sanju (currently streaming on Netflix). Not only is he easy on the eye, but he is no dummy. He pursued an Engineering degree from the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology. 

Ranveer Singh

Screenshot_20190730-132744If you haven’t seen this guy on two of his infamous movie clips on Facebook, let me introduce you. This man is a smoke show if I ever have seen one, but if you are inclined to disagree you can at least enjoy his flair and showmanship. He has three Filmfare Awards, amongst other awards. He also shares a spot with Varun Dhawan on Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 since 2012. He also is one of the highest-paid actors in India. 

Hrithik Roshan

Screenshot_20190730-132839Hrithik has been appearing in films as a child actor since the 1980s. He has even collaborated with his father, Rakesh Roshan, in movies. His resume is impressive as one of India’s highest grossing actors. He’s won several awards including six Filmfare Awards. He has worked as assistant director on his father’s films and he is known for his dancing skills. He is as generous as he is handsome as he is involved in several humanitarian causes. The good news is he’s over 40, so feel free to lust in peace.

If this list didn’t introduce you to a few of India’s most handsome men, at the very least it has inspired you to check out Bollywood. I love watching international films. Not only does it help a little with satisfying my need for world culture, but it can escape the traditional Hollywood storyline narrative and film style. What’s your favorite Bollywood film?

The No Hangover Rules

I’m no doctor. I just have a few years of experience under my belt that can help with those nights you know you’ve gone too far. You know, the night when you have that one drink that you know was past your limit. The exact moment you down it, you know that you will feel it in the morning. I’ve been in that situation a few too many times and so have my friends. I used to have that unforgiving hangover in college and noticed in my late 20’s and 30’s that it no longer happened. I truly don’t get the nasty morning-after effect, and there is a reason. I took on some habits that actually help me now to this day. So here is my playlist of things to prevent a hangover:

Light it Up – Major Lazer

Electrolytes! This can be pickle juice, Smart Water, a Gatorade or even your kids leftover Pedialyte. When you play sports it’s important to rehydrate yourself. You need to replenish your body, and sodium and potassium help the cause. When sweating you lose your potassium, sodium, and water. Urine isn’t necessarily sweat. Sweat is water, salts, and urea. Urine is what is filtered out through your kidneys (toxins and waste in liquid form). However, you do lose the same sodium and potassium through urination. When you drink alcohol heavily, you urinate a lot. It would only make sense to grab something with electrolytes in it. Sports drinks, Smart Water, Pedialyte or even pickle juice will help with this.

Medicine – Queen Naija

Ibuprofen is used to treat headaches, muscle pain/discomfort, and minor injuries. Although drinking isn’t necessarily an injury; heavy drinking can cause discomfort the morning after. Taking two Advil before a night of drinking can prevent that knocking headache the next morning. It can even help with any inflammation that may occur after your binge.

Vitamin D- Ludacris

Multi-Vitamins have to be my biggest secret weapon of all secret weapons. Alcohol is known to deplete nutrients in your body. Nutrients include, According to an article by Nourish, “vitamins B1, B6, B12, folic acid, zinc, magnesium and many more. These nutrients are responsible for many metabolic processes of the body, including helping the liver to detox effectively.” I take supplements every day which is why I don’t get hangovers like I used to. However, I definitely make sure to take a few after a heavier night of drinking. I wake up ready for the world. Whereas my friends who don’t are cutting me the side eye and wearing sunglasses the next day.

 

If you follow my few rules to the no hangover (or minimum hangover) cure, you will be on your way. I have done these things for years and trust me, I was good enough to work out the next day. I’m not guaranteeing that you will be motivated, but you will be able to. Sometimes a hangover is a matter of science and outsmarting your body. Hopefully, you will come across my little article and thank me in the morning. As always thank you for supporting the blog! Don’t forget to Like, Comment and Subscribe!

My Ex Watches All My Snaps

Hey Buddies, it’s been awhile. You’ve been searching for answers on Google. Your Ex has been doing something suspicious; you sought out the girl with all the answers. I think I know what you want to know. Let me set up the scene for you. You finally ended things with your ex, or they’ve ended things with you.  It’s been a few months and you noticed that your Ex watches your social media like teenagers watch Riverdale. Every time you post a picture or a video their name appears on the list of people who have watched your story. They’re stalking you, obviously. So, here I am with my cape to give you a playlist of reasons why you’re hunted by the ghost of your Ex.

Want That Old Thing Back – Biggie Smalls

Your Ex misses you. It’s that simple. They are trying to figure out the best way to pop up “just to see how you’re doing”.  They weren’t ready to let you go yet. Or at least they thought they were ready to let you go, and discovered they weren’t. So, here they are stalking you trying to figure out when they should drop in and send you a message.

Case of the Ex -Mya

They want to see how your life is fairing without them. We all leave our Exes with the hope that they are doing horrible without us. We hope that our former significant others can’t even tie their shoes without us. So what’s the best way to know whether the Ex is in despair because we knew they’d be sorry we left? That’s right, stalking. You have to do a little investigative work to know that the Exes life is falling apart.

I Miss You – Clean Bandit

They Miss you, but they don’t necessarily want you back. They like to reminisce about the times you shared together. However, in the words of Taylor Swift “We are never ever ever getting back together”. Sometimes you don’t want your Ex back. You just like to see what they’re up to every once in a while. They are simply just watching you to make sure you are ok. There is no malice, it’s over and they recognize that. It’s just that occasionally it’s nice just to see how an old flame is doing. What is the best way to find out without having to call? Stalk them a little bit.

At the end of it all, if you really want to know why your Ex is perusing your social media you can ask. They may think you’re reaching out; chances are if you want to know then asking why they watch all your stories is an excuse. If not you wouldn’t have taken the time out to stumble upon this blog (wags eyebrows).

How to: 3 ways to break up, that are more mature than ghosting.

You’ve met someone online, and you don’t like them. So, you want to pull a little disappearing act millennials like to refer to as ghosting.  It is the cowards way out if you think about it. Instead of telling the intended how you feel (being a mature adult), you choose to become an escape artist. Now you see me, now you don’t. Computers and smartphones have made it even easier to leave someone on read (sidenote: if you have an iPhone they can see you read a message and didn’t respond). Thus leaving them on read, you’re welcome non-millennials.). If you throw in online dating to the mix, you now have a powder keg of communication avoidance. You’ve never seen them face to face, so it’s easier to disregard their feelings. I’m here to improve your online and face to face relations. Here is my playlist on ways to end it rather than becoming Houdini reincarnated.

Say it to my face-Madison Beer

Face to Face is always the way to go for more serious breakups. If you are in a relationship with someone the least you can do to look them in the eye. We quickly forget how things are when the shoe is on the other foot. You asked yourself a million questions. Why has this person disappeared? The cell phone that is permanently attached to your hand becomes a fixture for your eyes. Anytime your phone lights up, you’re hoping it’s from that someone. In the back of your mind, you already know that it won’t be. You’ve likely sent a few more text than you should have and stalked them out of existence online. I’m sure you called them hesitating on whether to leave a voicemail. You start to wonder if your phone is even working. It has been with you a while, maybe it isn’t operating properly after all. Don’t put someone else through these mental Olympics, even if it has become part of our culture.  If you have been seeing someone for a while, even if the commitment isn’t official, end things in person. The closure isn’t just for them. It’s for you as well.

Video Phone-Beyonce

Technology has made some aspects of communication easier. If you are in a long distance relationship with someone, then video calling is the next best thing. Traveling all the way to someone can become expensive. It may not even be necessary if the relationship wasn’t official. Video calling gives you all the perks of face to face. The downside is physical touch won’t be there. If you are breaking up, chances are that isn’t a concern.

Text From Your Ex- Tinnie Tempah

This is the last of your options if you were in a relationship. But, if you have only been corresponding through text it’s perfectly fine. When you haven’t spoken to someone face to face, it’s the easiest to ghost them. I see the allure in it. It’s so easy just to not respond back to a message. You never have to talk to them again. We’re practicing better communication skills people. It starts with the text-only level of dating.  Send a simple message. It doesn’t have to be an sms paragraph. Explain that you don’t see your interactions going any further or that we aren’t the right fit for one another. If they want a further explanation, you can give it to them. If you don’t want to give them one, it would be the time to ask them not to contact you. Ask that they respect that. If they can’t well… Blocked.

Technology is an amazing invention. It gives us ways to communicate if face to face isn’t an option. It also makes it entirely too easy to be a coward behind characters and emojis. Being an adult means to be responsible with relationships as well. Making sure you do the right thing isn’t just for when you like a person. It’s for when you are ready to walk away as well.

I hope this helped hone your breakup skills. If you like post like this, let me know. Leave a comment telling me how you broke up with someone. If you have a crazy breakup story I would love to hear it. As always thank you for supporting the blog. You’ve been patient with the changes going on with the site.

MCM, I Went Viral Edition: Chuando Tan

I went to get gas today. I went to a sketchy gas station attached to a restaurant. I only Screenshot_20180723-221951stopped there because I was practically on E. I was skeptical of the station because people run this scam where they hack the pumps and charge you as soon as you run your card for a higher amount. I pumped the gas and didn’t get a receipt. So, I went inside to make sure I wasn’t getting charged more than I paid. I go in, and bam saw the hottest Sikh guy behind the bulletproof glass. But, since I didn’t get his picture. You’ll have to take my word for it, lol. Anywhosal….Happy Monday. It’s everyone’s favorite MCM where you get your thirst quenched. Kidding, you get thirstier because MIP keeps it sort of hott. Speaking of hott, have you seen the 52-year-old man from Singapore who when viral for being a complete Zaddy?  I saw him and never thought I would hand over my phone number to a senior citizen so fast. Is he considered a senior citizen? Idk. All I know is I considered having his old ass babies, and I’m not ashamed. I’m in one-sided love (only because he hasn’t seen me yet, haha) and I’m pretty sure it’s serious. I’m meeting him at the altar in my white dress.

Screenshot_20180723-221933Dude, have you seriously seen this guy???? A year ago today he went viral for being super hott, and the ex-model turned photographer basically became a model all over again. He did some modeling in his younger days, but I think he’s hotter now than he was then. He aged like a fine wine…that I would like to sip. I’m going to keep it pg because I’m trying to respect my elders. However, I do wish this was one of those k-dramas where he’s my teacher and we end up dating after I graduate…because I would judge him super hard if he dated me in high school. It’s gross. Let’s scratch that example. It’s bordering on pedo. He’s steamy though and I wonder how someone becomes that hott over time. It’s like God tried to only add a dash of handsome and dropped the whole bottle in the pot. Anyway, he’s good looking. That’s what I’m getting at. Hey Chuando Tan. I wish I was Mrs.Tan, but I heard there may already be one of those. So, right now I’ll leave it at my crush on you.

MCM Bollywood Edition: Vicky Kaushal

It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday! With my hands in other writing projects, IScreenshot_20180716-205413 wasn’t quite sure if I would make the man crush deadline this week. However, I pulled through however late I am. This week I wanted to tip my hat to a genre of movies that I personally enjoy. I tend to visit a Bollywood film every so often (every week). This particular guy is a really really good actor, but I like him particularly because he’s hott. This week I’m showing all the love to Vicky Kaushal.

I’ve seen him in Lust Stories and Love per Square Foot, as well as a host of other titles I Screenshot_20180716-210054can’t pronounce nor spell without it being directly in front of me. I normally have to read the subtitles to know what’s happening, but if he marries me I will gladly read subtitles forever. Orrrrr I’ll be enrolling myself in the nearest Hindi class so I can at least say my vows, lol. I know you guys think I like him just because he’s hott, and you’re half right. However, he really is a good actor. He’s more than just a pretty face and he has the awards to prove it. He’s actually one of the few people that I believe when he’s on screen, and that’s a compliment. It’s hard for me to believe a lot of actors when they are on screen. They just seem like they’re acting. However, he actually makes me believe he’s actually the person he’s portraying on screen. That alone is swoon-worthy. I can probably ramble on forever, but I’ll try and keep it brief. Vicky Kaushal, I would gladly change my last name for you, lol. I may just have a crush on you.

MCM: Rotimi aka Dre of Starz’s Power

Welcome to everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday. So, Rotimi basically makes me wantScreenshot_20180709-230414 to visit Nigeria. Spoiler Alert: He’s Nigerian, lol. I won’t lie, I absolutely hate him on the show. He has his moments when he’s hosting in the club where I remember he’s actually hott in person (he likes to call himself Butterscotch). However, in the show (sorry Dre) he just doesn’t do it for me.

However, in real life… (**fans myself from the heat) he is Screenshot_20180709-230521smokin’ hott. AND HE SINGSSSSSSS. Not like how hott guys say they can sing, but they actually suck. He actually is pretty good at it. So far he’s hott, he can sing and he’s pretty good at acting (because I hate his character…but not him, let’s be clear). I’ve posted him before on my Instagram page because he posted a thirst trap that I could appreciate. Rotimi, you are basically the love of my life and I have a crush on you.

Midpoint Check In: Switching Gears

At this point, I’ve been running My Infinite Playlist for a little over half a year. I’ve happy turn up GIF by Originals-sourcelearned somethings about blogging, running a site and the direction in which the blog is going.  So far I have seen a little increase in dedicated readership. Which is what I would like. I want the reader who will stay with us through the journey. The passive readers are great too. I’m confident in the content that I create on this site, and I am sure once a member of our target audience experiences the world of M.I.P they will stick around for good.

“We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours…”

New Themes:

I realized the true direction I wanted to take this blog. It started off as an interracial blog, wonder woman beyonce GIF-sourceand I would still like to keep that as a topic that we visit. However, I really would like to focus on the overall theme that black women and other women of color are non-monolithic. We are all different, we are into different music, style of dress, dating patterns. We live alternative lifestyles and we are even into alternative forms of beauty. We can be vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian. We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours, like beer brewing and tattooing. K-music, J-music, Latin Pop, Afro Beat, EDM, and rock are just some of the genres where we are widespread and share an interest in. We are feminist, traditionalist, minimalist, members of the 1%, political powerhouses, Rap songstresses, and women extraordinaires. We are all of these things under the umbrellas of being people of color and being women. We can be any label we want to apply to ourselves and not just the label assigned to us. We are allowed that basic human right.

“I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. “

Forging Ahead:

source (6)

So in the continuity of this blog, I would like to document those experiences of women. Especially, women of color who are forging in directions that aren’t traditionally ours to be had. I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. We will continue to be all of the sexy millennial fun of man crush Monday, and we will mix it with the radical faces of women who refuse to be labeled.

“I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed”

Hey You, Yes You. We’re Looking for you!

We are still looking for contributors that share our vision and that can offer a view into giphy (72)the world of women doing things differently. We also want people who can tell their personal experiences and stories of breaking free or living alternatively. I’m excited to share this new direction with you, and I’m thrilled to share a safe space for women of color to be who they are.  As always, thank you for supporting the blog on WordPress and Social Media. I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed. I love you Playlisters, Besos!

MCM: The Kissing Booth’s Jacob Elordi aka Google, How old is Jacob Elordi?

Guess what day it isssssss???? It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday and boy do I Screenshot_20180609-235024have a Man Crush for you. I’ll give you a hint, you guys practically shut down google looking him up. Break the Internet anyone? Yeah, your searches went from anything like How old is Jacob Elordi to How tall is Jacob Elordi with Does Jacob Elordi have a girlfriend somewhere nestled in between. He play’s the very hunky Noah Flynn boyfriend to Shelly Evans on the Netflix hit, The Kissing Booth and in real life, he is the Boyfriend to the beautiful Joey King. Be jealous.

Jacob Elordi is one of the stars of Netflix most-watched Screenshot_20180609-235309original American teen romantic comedy alongside the very talented Joey King who you may remember from movies like Wish Upon and Crazy, Stupid, Love. I swear I wasn’t alone when I saw how tall he was in the movie (6’3) and of Legal age ( 1997, thank God…amiright??). In fact, I knew I wasn’t because I got on facebook later and saw a crap ton of statuses dedicated to, The Kissing Booth and Jacob Elordi simultaneously with the same questions. It made my heart pitter patter to know that my sisterens were so connected with my train of thought. We are of one mind (sort of).  I think I was just happy to know that if I ever ran into Jacob Elordi in real life and he was single (and I wouldn’t get arrested for trying to lick his abs…jk, jk lol) that my possible boyfriend would be taller than me. That’s (one of) the only thing/s a girl could ask for. Jacob Elordi, I would like to climb you like a tree (again j/k. j/k haha) and also I have a crush on you.

As always, thank you for supporting My Infinite Playlist. Check out more photos of Jacob below. Please don’t forget to comment, follow, subscribe and like us on Word Press and Social Media. I really love you guys to pieces. Besos!
