When we were in secondary school we used to have passionate arguments over who is superior to the other. My little sister is ten years younger than me. She tells me that the girls are still debating that in school!
As kids we took our Bollywood very seriously. More so since Bollywood movies were forbidden and we used watch them on the sly. When all of the children in our extended family used to get together during vacations we used to have BIG fights over the Khans. Basically half of the kids were die hard Salman fans and the other half supported Shahrukh. Ofcourse, all of us grew out of this silliness but Salman and Shahrukh are still fighting!
“guess who I just saw on the road!”
Me: Where are you?
Friend: Mumbai Central. You won’t believe who I just saw!
She was sounding so excited. I thought she must have seen Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan or SRK!
Friend: Imtiaz Ali!
Me: you mean the guy who made Jab We Met?
Me: You are excited about seeing Imtiaz Ali! Hahaha..Come on yaar..What’s the big deal about seeing him!
I mean it was so funny,I really didn’t think she would be sooo excited about seeing him.
Reminded me of the time when I was in college and I had spotted the entire Indian cricket team outside the Mumbai international airport.. I was a HUGE cricket fan and it was a nice opportunity to take autographs but I didn’t approach them because I thought it was inappropriate for a girl!
