Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week, I can’t WAIT for it to be done. It’s just one of those weeks. And there’s no new movie on Friday so I can have a whooooole evening to myself.
Watching: Akaash Vani! It is everything I hoped for and more. To the point of being painful to watch. TRIGGER WARNING if you are considering it. But, at the same time, really cathartic. I’m sick of white-washing marital rape and parents who sell their daughters into sex slavery and believe they have done right. Oh, and also LifeSize 2: Christmas Eve, which is surprisingly good and has nothing painful about it at all.
Reading: A good romance novel, a bad romance novel, and a pretty good romance novel. It is December indeed! Oh, and also a friend sent me a link to this interesting article: https://www.livemint.com/Leisure/gW0RmkMUb27QUducQZaLIL/Why-dont-these-girls-work.html?fbclid=IwAR0rEpJlKtX3R09-RHtGkxEXTcfQp0LSXmWyqGgZwG2UdP45zq14IYalU4o
And there is a new Shahrukh interview. Not super interesting, not worth a post, but worth a read if you are an SRK fan: https://mumbaimirror.indiatimes.com/entertainment/bollywood/shah-rukh-khan-the-beauty-of-love-is-that-you-dont-need-to-demand-or-beg-for-it/articleshow/67049848.cms
Thinking: What the heck am I going to do with Dog Hazel over Christmas? My parents are back 2 days before me, but that’s still a looooooooong time. I’m hoping I can find another friend or relative to help out, and there’s also a Rover.com boarder I could use if I can’t find anyone else. But that is EXPENSIVE!!! Would cost more than my plane tickets. Plus, I’m nervous leaving her with a stranger. The problem is, she is scared of other dogs. And cats. And little bunnies. So I can’t put her in a kennel, and I can’t put her with any of my many many friends who would love to have her, but already have cats and/or dogs. Hazel! Why are you so scared of everything???
Listening: Still officially Christmas stuff, but I did take a little break for something completely different inspired by watching Akaash Vani:
Now, watching question for you! I already put up the vitally important post asking what the sexiest scene was in Indian film, now let me put up a related question: What is the sexiest film for your favorite stars?
Shahrukh, definitely Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Salman, tie between Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Koun
Aamir, tie between Ghulam and Rangeela and Lagaan (boy, he is sexy A LOT!)
Nivin, obviously Ohm Shanti Oshaana
Prithviraj, City of God (the gazing!)
Prabhas, Mirchi (no duh, will anyone argue with that?)
Anil Kapoor, the 30 seconds when he is dancing with Shefali Shah at the end of Dil Dhadakne Do and NO OTHER TIME
Jackie Shroff, a movie that does not exist in this world
Bonus/Alternate question, LEAST sexy moment ever (that is supposed to be sexy). Or to put it another way, will anything ever be less sexy than this?
