Noooze!! :D

::jumps up and down screaming:: NOOOZE, I HAVE NOOOOZE!!! :D

Ok, toning that down a bit, Fellas, I have NEWS. Notice the capital NEWS?? Shall I tell, tell? Ok, here goes, ::takes a deep breath:: I. Am. Going. To. Meet. AAMIR KHAN!!! Gotcha! :D Tis true, tis true! He is going to be in a city near my city to promote Peepli and the National Media Museum there is selling tickets to go and see Aamir Khan talk to a Bollywood professor and researcher from Manchester (He is a really big name in the Academics too, if anybody has heard of Rajinder Dudrah.) There will be time for question and answer later too! And, I and *some of* (ahem, you know, I'm talking to you) my other friends from our Bollywood class have booked tickets too. So, come 22nd September and wheeeeeeeeeee!!!! I'm going to see Aamir Khan with my own almost naked (coz I'll have my glasses on) eyes! :D For 20 years, when I lived in Mumbai, I didn't see a SINGLE actor/ actress. I've sighted minor celebrities like Band of Boys or Neena Gupta (does anyone even remember them?) at college festivals. But never a real celebrity sighting. And I don't even consider myself as someone who'd swoon over a celebrity sighting. I mean, they too will bleed when pricked, right? But, I think if I ever see Hritik Roshan, (maybe Shahid Kapoor, I'm not so sure), Madhuri Dixit or Amitabh Bacchan, I'll probably have the same reaction I've been having about Aamir Khan. Maybe a bit more for Hritik Roshan and a bit less for everyone else.

Dude, Aamir Khan!! I'd NEVER expected this to happen! I do truly, genuinely think he's an excellent artist. Every film of his, from Andaz Apna Apna to 3 Idiots has something awesome going on for it. Ok, maybe not so much the 90's films like Ishq, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak etc. But that's because the films in the 80's and the 90's were like that. Besides, he was so new. And even these films, I know, are enjoyed by a LOT of people. I do happen to know some Ishq and QSQT fans. I'm sorry to say, I'm not one of those. But anyway, his later films from Ghulam and Sarfarosh to 3 Idiots - all of them rocked (with the possible exception of Mangal Pandey! :P) Rang De Basanti and Taare Zameer Par make me cry every single time I watch them. And I even wrote a whole paper on Lagaan for my Bollywood essay assignment, I love his work so much! And of course, he has flawless marketing schemes. That man reeeallllllly knows how to market his stuff. So much talent! I'm really lucky to have this chance of actually seeing this man in flesh and blood and hear him talk about intelligent Bollywood stuff. Yaaay! :D This is all because I came to this university and met all these awesome Academics and generally, did a lot of networking. I do absolutely love this uni. :D

Ok, in other big news, I have booked my tickets to go home!!!! :D I'll be in Mumbai in exactly 2 months time! :D I can't wait for 20th October to come and take me home, baby!! :D (June, does that make you happy? :P)

*Pictures courtsey Google.


  1. We have seen celebrities in Mumbai! Remember Amitabh Bachchan shooting in the building next to our college on their main stairs? We were returning from watching DOR with Eki???? Remember!

  2. I can NOT wait to meet Kamal Haasan. He's the only person I've been drooling over my entire life!!

    Oh and your music player totally freaked me out! I couldn't figure out where the music was coming from so restarted my system, closed all music players and it would still not stop!! :S Phew! What a relief knowing it was only from here! :-D

  3. @ Disha: Omg, yes!! I had completely forgotten about that one! We saw Amitabh Bacchan and Dia Mirza shooting for Shootout at Lokhandwala and then Eki and all the boys went crazy about Dia Mirza! hehe!! Yea, but see what I meant, I wasn't this fan girly like then. I think I might be growing younger and teenager-er rather than growing up!! waattodo?!!

    @ June: Hehehe!! I'm sorry you had to freak out. I am thinking of removing it. Its a bit annoying. :/ And Kamal Haasan is a very intelligent artist as well, I agree!! :)

  4. Hey, no worries! :D
    Kamal Hassan! Sigh

    Hope Aamir is as charming and as witty in person.

  5. Thanks! :) I really hope so too! Because if he turned out to be all egoistic and basically a vain asshole, I'll totally lose all that respect for him! :/
