Happy Wednesday! I have a loooooooooong day today, church meeting tonight and got up early to go to the bank before work, so give me energy with cheering conversation!
Reading: The new Sanjay Dutt biography, which is addictive and a super easy read, I started it yesterday and I’m already half done. I’ll probably be all done by tonight. Highly recommend it, and yes you can buy it in Amazon.
Thinking: I sent an email to the funky storefront language school down the street from me asking about Hindi classes, haven’t heard back yet. Do I just, like, knock on the door and talk to people? Like this is olden times?
Watching: My new co-worker lent me a very weird Pakistani film, Bol, and in return said I could lend her “anything”. Which is a lot of pressure! I think I will bring in a selection of DVDs and let her pick.
Now, question for you! Actually multiple questions, in honor of Anushka’s birthday yesterday:
What is your favorite Anushka movie/performance?
Oh this is hard! Out of all her movies, I think I love Patiala House the most. Yes, even more than Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (don’t hate me!). But it’s not a great role/performance for her. For that, I think Ae Dil Hai Mushkil? An unapologetically difficult woman.
What co-star do you want to see her with again?
Parambrata Chatterjee from Pari. Really interesting vibe between them, him feeling softer than most male actors, and her feeling harder than most female.
What actor do you want her to work with that she hasn’t worked with before?
Dips! They’ve been dancing around each other their whole careers, both launched by Shahrukh, both co-starring with Ranbir and Ranveer and Imran Khan and Shahrukh again, but never going head to head. I want to see them in a female lead film playing rivals, Aaina or Silsila style.
