Here’s the weekly roundup of all things Bollywood forcing the couch-potato that I am to emerge from the depths of my cozy sofa and take serious notice. A few will receive bouquets, the rest bukkes 😆 Read on and enjoy maadi.
1] inspirASHAn: The Film Industry has completed a landmark 100 years and this amaaaaaaaaaazing woman has spent 70 of her 80 years being an integral part of it. I’m talking about the ‘evergreen woman’, Dev Anand’s female version if you like :lol:- the invincible Asha Bhosle!
A woman who adapts to the changing times, thus rendering herself relevant for close to a century, she’s who I call the ‘desi Madonna’ albeit the one who likes keeping her clothes on 😆 She’s a huuuuuge inspirASHAn for all those down in the dumps and who like wallowing in self-pity. By george, she’s jammed even with Boy George!!! 😆 And even though her husband was long dead, she bounced back from her sorrow with some help from Code Red! 😀
Lately, her daughter’s death was the reason for her grief but even the span of this period of mourning has been brief. Last heard, she sashayed down the ramp as showstopper for Manish Malhotra! 😯 Woohooooo! Way to go tai!
2] I ❤ New York: Who doesn’t? But what I abhor seeing is this new dork! 😆 Sunny, you’re no Johnny to titillate us with your chaddis 😆 or anything like your namesake Sunny (Leone) 😛
You look ridiculous trying to play the part of a lovelorn puppy. Tussi puppy nahi, Paa(pa)ji ho 😆 and you don’t have to step back in circa 1999, doing all that you did in Sill(y)lagi…oops Dillagi 😆 Come to think of it, he looked like a cradle-snatcher twenty years ago too! 😀
Handpump tak toh theek tha, aur kuch mat ukhaadna! 😆 😆 😆 😛 😛 😛
Seems like Kangana RanOATH likes me muttering those distasteful oaths 😆 Psycho chick avatar was wayyyyy better, at least that I did not as much loathe! 😉
3] ‘SIGH’ Paranjpye: I feel for the woman. I really do! I can’t help but SIGH! 😀 The woman’s hopping mad that a director of David Dhawan’s calibre (and this I don’t mean in a good way!) had the audacity and gumption to remake her classic. Known for inventing the highly infamous and extremely loud ‘Govinda color scheme’, make sure you carry your kaale CHASHME to the theatre 😆 and don’t forget to spout those BADDOO(aas) 😆
BELOW: Aise hi, audience ke liye dhoondthe reh jaaoge! We still prefer our ‘Chamko’! 😛
