Interesting coverage..... yes?















Since some of you have been asking.... here it is. I have received the sweetest comments on this particular story. Would welcome yours...
************
Couldn't make it to Arnab's show tonight. Nor to Rahul's ( Headlines Today). The topic on both was the same - it's the big story about Raakhi Sawant's show timing getting changed to a later slot. If you ask me, by doing that, the show will attract more eyeballs, not less. But hopefully kids won't be awake to watch this rubbish. So... it's all good.
I had to go back and sit through 'The Social Network' again - this time to feast on Justin Timberlake's performance. He reminded me so much of Ness Wadia... I had to pinch myself several times and say, " Aw.... come on... Ness is hotter.... better.... but maybe not cleverer." What a terrific acting debut! What inspired casting! Napster Justin was almost as good as Jesse ( the role is better scripted and nuanced, too). When will we make movies that are even half as good? When will this be butchered in a remake? And who'll play the desi Mark Zuckerberg? Let's get a poll going.... my money is on Imran Khan. Do send in your nominations.
P.S. Whosoever is responsible for that truly terrible commercial on Kerala ( " God's Own Country.... Devil's Own People" is how this gorgeous state has been projected), should be sacked instantly. More 'Out of Africa' than Kerala. Misleading and misconceived. Simbly awful, unggle!

Shobhaji,
As much as I admired you before today...I had very little information about your formative years or how you got shaped into what you are today....I am so glad to have had this glimpse into those wonderful years....
We do have one (maybe 2 in the making) thing in common ... My first born is also called Aaditya and the probable second common thing...me being pregnant now and hoping for a baby daughter...have finalised Avantika as her name !!
Avantika coz there was a Marathi serial by that name and the lead role played by Mrinal Deo was called so...and more so...coz it was my fav serial !!

I hope that apart from these commonalities I get to have some more things in common (like authoring and publishing books.
God willing one day ...

i just felt to comment on this statement....well Jesse Eisenberg had to go for auditions for proving his caliber.....but alas in our country "pota-potis, beta-betis, bhanjas" etc etc get roles to play....and that's why most of today's bollywood films do miserably bad:-((((

I'd like to point out that The Social Network is not Justin Timberlake's acting debut. It is his most recognized movie though. He's worked in several other films before and they weren't cameos. Eisenberg is hollywood's latest nerd/geek/quirky guy, much like Michael Cera but Eisenberg clearly has more depth.
Imran Khan is Bollywood's cute lover boy and we all know what happened when he tried he prove he wasn't (Luck, Kidnap). I doubt he can pull off any quirkiness convincingly. It would be a pain to watch him try. Hes to Bollywood what Jennifer Aniston is to Hollywood. Adorable in their element but pull them out and its fish out of water. My bet is Abhay Deol, he seems to have the ability to play both the confused/troubled and the suave and put together. He might be a little bit mature looking for it though, but since when did that start mattering in the entertainment industry? The guy is underrated. Second choice would be Pratiek Babbar, a lot of quirk and a strong presence.
