Happy Monday! I had a long wonderful lazy weekend, and even found time to vacuum, and now I am trying to get back into “work mode” in my head. Help me!
You can ask me anything from the personal (“what are you doing for Diwali?”) to the specific and factual (“what is Diwali and how do people celebrate it?”) to the general discussion (“Is Diwali or Christmas a better time to release a movie?”).
Only rule is, you have to let me answer first! The discussion just goes better that way. But once I answer, feel free to leap in and join the discussion.
Now, question for you!
One thing that really surprised bye about Bazaar was that I liked Saif’s voice. I used to hate it, but now he has aged and gotten better control and so on and I really liked it. Which brings me to my question, What Voice do You Really Like in Indian Film?
I like Shahrukh, obviously. Ajay Devgan also has a really good voice. Prabhas of course. And among women, I really like Juhi’s voice. And Katrina Kaif, strangely. Abhishek makes every single line different and interesting. Akshaye too.
Now, the converse! What Voice do You Really NOT Like in Indian Film?
Alia, ever since a friend pointed it out, I am really irritated by her lack of articulation. Emraan Hashmi mumbles, I hate it. Nivin, don’t like his voice as much either although I think he is improving. Kangana, really really can’t stand her voice any more! It’s just always so similar and so strange, I was fine in the first few movies I saw with her, but now her diction is bothering me since it is the same in every role and every interview, and so distinctive. Salman, when he does his drawl, not when he speaks clearly and simply, but he doesn’t do that much.
What about you?
