This is going to be a short post. Nothing to do with Amma or Didi ( Column on those two appears in Sunday Times tomorrow). This is a little bit of a 'motherly bragging' type column! Indulge me!
My daughter Arundhati is in Cannes, covering the world's most glamourous film festival for a glossy. This is her Antonio Banderas moment! Seeing him emerge from a limo just a few feet from where she happened to be on the Croisette, made her knees go weak and her hands tremble. To wave.... perhaps, greet... or to shoot.... became a big dilemma. Since her hands were cold and shaking, it took a few extra seconds for her to fish out her camera ( a Cannes gift from me ) and click.... before his burly body guards chased her away as a pesky pap. Well.... nice try, Aru! Next time,get the face, okay???
