Happy Monday! I successfully finished my first week of heartworm treatment! Well, not “my” first week, the dog’s first week. But I’m the one who had to give her the pills and rub her sore legs and stuff. And now, the second week! In which if her heart rate goes up, she will DIE!!!! (or so the Vet impressed it upon me) Now, distract me from my overwhelming responsibilities by asking me questions. Oh, and answering mine, a follow up to last Monday.
You can ask me anything from the personal (“are you seeing Aiyaary this week?”) to the specific factual (“why was Aiyaary delayed?”) to the general discussion (“$800 for heartworm treatment for a dog, worth it or not worth it?”)
The only rule is, you have to let me answer first! I will give my answer as soon as I can, and then anyone else can leap in and respond. But generally it seems to work better if I start off the discussion.
And now, a question for you! Last Monday I asked you what actor is general popular, but you just can’t see the appeal. Now, the reverse: what actor is general not popular or not noticed, but really really appeals to you?
For me, it is Mohnish Behl. Oh Mohnish Behl! I am both fond of him in a general “hey, that guy, he’s so nice” way and in a “hot hot Mohnish Behl!” kind of way. Something about his sort of manly confidence in his own skin, his cocky smile, I just can’t resist it.
There are some other slightly lessor known heartthrobs, but I am guessing they are less uncommon. For instance, Rahul Bose. Does anyone not love Rahul Bose? At least a little bit? He commits so fully to his performances, and is also strangely vibrating with energy.
And Akshaye Khanna, who has such a great “no really, I just don’t care what you think, I want to do the most interesting performance I can for myself” kind of attitude.
Abhay Deol, another one who never really hit it big but I will watch anything he is in.
From the female side of things, I am strangely charmed by Dia Mirza. She was legitimately good in Tehzeeb, and I really like her sort of public attitude.
Lara Dutta, another one of the ex-beauty queens. I first noticed her in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, doing a great job in a comic role, and now I love her in her new career as the humorous older woman in wacky comedies.
Now, how about you? Who are your slightly off-beat favorites?
