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?

MCM: Riverdale’s Charles Melton

Do you know what day it is????? It’s Man Crush Monday and this one is long deserved. IScreenshot_20190311-152729 should have featured this guy right after Cole Sprouse. Today, I am rewriting my wrongs. He needs to know that I see him. I’ve always seen him, and if one day we cross paths the answer is yes. Yes, I will be Mrs. Charles Melton. Hey Playlisters! I binged watched a little of Riverdale this weekend. I wasn’t able to even make a dent because duty calls. I was able to watch 2 episodes and I had to ask myself. Well, honestly I asked Veronica but we all know she can’t hear me. I acknowledge that it is more the writer’s fault because she isn’t real. But, I have to know, Veronica how do you work around Reggie and not want to jump his bones? It boggles me. So, I’ll ask the actress that plays Veronica, Camila Mendes. Camila, how do you work around your boyfriend and not want to abandon the storyline. Camila, you’ve made a stellar choice. If you would have dated Archie in real life, then I would have to take you off of my faves list.

What can I say? Charles Melton is HOTT. Riverdale, if the only reason you hired him is Screenshot_20190311-152753eye candy then Camila and I thank you. I mean, yes. He is a great actor, but besides that…he’s hot. Sorry to go into a rabbit hole right now, but Veronica…girl. Reggie is 6 feet. Archie is only 5’11, and he wines a lot. Your dad wants to kill him. Reggie is the obvious choice. Again, I get it…the writers. I know. Anywho this leads me back on track with what I was saying. Charles Melton is in the 6-foot club.  Again Camila, excellent choice. That’s why I like her. She makes excellent choices.

Ok back to his talent. He will be in a few upcoming projects. The Sun Is Also a Star co-starring another MIP fave, Yara Shahidi. It is in theaters in May 2019. He will also be in the highly anticipated Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence; set to be in theaters 2020. I’m glad he’s making great career moves because I’ll be able to look at him longer. So other than he’s talented, tall and hott that’s it for your MCM.

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!

Burning up for You, Because I’m a Sucker: MCM Jonas Edition

It’s been a super long time since MCM, I know (hangs head). I had to return like a Jonas Brother this Monday. After years of being apart, the old gang has gotten back together. I personally, couldn’t be more thrilled. All three Jonas’s in one place?! Are you kidding me?! Most of the group is married now (WHY GOD WHY!), but it’s ok. We still have the last hott Jonas, Joe (sort of, he’s taken too). Sidebar, he’s honestly the one I originally had a crush on before Nick had the nerve to grow up hott. I saw him in those Calvin Klein boxers, and I knew then I was in love. I mentally licked the screen of my computer, because actually doing it is gross. The Jonas Brothers dropped their Sucker video at 12am March 2nd. It stared their real-life leading ladies( So jealous). This has been an MCM that is a long time coming. They deserved MCM before it was actually a thing. So without further ado, I present for the first time of 2019 MCM in all its raunchy glory!

Kevin Jonas

He’s always been like Dad cute. Like you can tell he would make a loving, doting husband and father. Turns out he did just that. It’s like the guy that you curved for his hott brother. Only to find out once you hit 30 that you probably should have paid him some attention. You know, when you’re crying on your floor in a rental bridal gown.  You have icing on your face because you are a bridesmaid for the 90th time? You may not have thought he was as hott, but the regret is just as strong.

 

Joe Jonas

He’s the one that literally came out the womb hott. The doctor smacked him on the butt and I guarantee you, he winked. I’d be shocked to find out this kid has one bad picture. Even if he

Yu Tsai

showed me one, it’s probably the one he thinks sucks but we would all still drink his bath water in. He’s like the kid you had a crush on in high school. You hope when your 10-year reunion happens he’s bald because he turned you down. You show up at the school gym and not only does he have a full head of hair, but abs. That’s him all wrapped up into a high school superlative. Most likely to still be hott. Turns out, that’s also true.

 

Nick Jonas

He was a cute kid, singing lead with his brothers. If you are a young 20 something you probably had a crush on him. If you are an early 30 something, you were trying to stay out of jail. So, he was virtually invisible. That is until he posed in that Calvin Klein underwear. He was coming in hott on your radar. I know he was on mine. I think I actually hated Priyanka for a smooth month

after the relationship was announced. I LOVE Priyanka, so that should tell you how hard that news was. All I could think was that I had a chance despite the age gap (whether I did or not, lol.). If I had just been at the right party at the right time I could have been Mrs. Pink Hair Blogger Jonas. I wouldn’t put too much stock into it. I said the same thing when I found out the red-headed love of my life, Prince Harry, was marrying Meghan Markle (**cries in could have been).

Breaking Up is Hard To Do: Ending Unofficial Relationships

Ending a relationship is one of the hardest things you have to do. It feels like a part of you is dying. The companionship is ending no matter how minute it may have become in recent times, and that’s hard. There is one thing for sure, something has been off for a while now. You know you should end things, but giving up someone that you have feelings for is difficult. You have put so much into it, and you haven’t even made it official. You feel like it could be any day now that things begin to look up, but it’s been months; years even. This article is about breaking up with what never was.

Settling – Summer Walker

Settling is a word often associated with potential in relationships; that can be risky. You see the possibility of a person being what you need. So, you also settle for the possibility of it never happening. It’s essentially a passion project that may never pan out. You are trying to change a person into what you believe they can be, and they may resist that.  A study found that people who didn’t want to be single were more likely to choose less desirable matches. Could your fear of being single overshadow choosing quality matches? If this is the case, it’s high time you let it go.

Let It Go – Keyshia Cole

It’s time to do a sit-down. Whether it is via video chat or meeting at a neutral place; you’re tieing the loose strings of your ending “relationship”. My sister is the queen of gently letting someone down. Start the conversation with something positive about them. This will get the ball rolling is a good direction. Explain why you want to cut things off. Then, end the conversation with kind words if possible.

How Can I Ease The Pain – Lisa Fischer

There are a few ways that will help you move past the relationship once you break it off. Detoxing is highly important. Jill Weber say’s, “the only realistic way out is to stop all contact so that you can start anew.” She also says, “Time away helps positively enhance perspective.” More of her expert opinion can be found in her book,  Toxic Love 5 Steps. Working on yourself is important after a breakup. Taking up a new activity is a good way to take your mind off of the relationship that never was. Also, doing a self-discovery and pursuing self-love is also important in healing.  

It’s all about leveling up and letting go of anything that isn’t making us better. We all have stories of entertaining someone a little too long. The key is that we learn from our mistakes and end the pattern. We are worth the love we give others. The best way to attract the love you so freely give other people is to learn to love ourselves. What advice can you give in getting past relationships that never were? Do you have a story about someone you held on to a little too long? Sound off in the comment section below.

 

Princess Switch **Spoiler Alert**

I have been drug out of the debts of my hiding place yet again to discuss something that I am passionate about; Chessy Christmas Movies. Not just any movie though;  I want to talk about Princess Switch, (Starring Vanessa Hudgens, Sam Palladio and Nick Sager). It was great and I loved every over the top, excessive, extra mozzarella with a side of cheddar moment. However, there are a few things I would like to highlight. So, for old time’s sake here is my playlist. Alert, spoilers ahead.

Switch – TLC

The classic prince and commoner fall in love story is a classic for a reason. Yet, I was more interested in the Dutchess falling in love with the common guy. Now, that is the real story. I need a remake highlighting more of that story. Times are changing. Women have more power and influence. Sometimes I want to see the crown princess choose the normal guy.

Don’t Speak – No Doubt

Sam Palladio, is an actor I recognize from the hit u.s. drama, Nashville. He had a heavy southern accent on the show. So, it came as a surprise to a lot of people he was indeed British. The thing is…he slips in and out of his accent during the movie. In the famous words of Bruno Mars, “Don’t believe me? Just watch.”.

I’m in Love with Another Man -Jazmine Sullivan

Sure, it was totes adorbs (totally adorable) that the girls swapped and fell in love with the man in the others life. Especially, since it happened without the whole thing being trifling as hell. But, let’s address the huge elephant in the room.  If given the choice to be a princess is nice, but Nick Sagar made me rethink my childhood dreams. And that’s #factz. You can swim in his dimples and do your laundry on his abs and that’s all I could ever ask for in life. And, I’m going to shock the hell out of you. He’s British. Goes to show how useful accent coaches are.
