Interesting combo today! 2 people that I am fonder of than I should logically be, and I am guessing I am not alone?
Who here loves Konkona? From her art film roots, to her mainstream heroines back in the early 2000s who somehow didn’t feel mainstream, to her unmarried and unashamed pregnancy followed by marriage to Ranvir Shorey and a break from acting, to her return in small interesting parts in small interesting films (like Akira), to her debut as a director?
Now, who here loves Jimmy Shergill? From his first films with his innocent open face, to his cheerful failure as a leading man, to his acceptance of his lot in life as the loser in the love triangle film after film? From his position as a promising young future star to a pleasant character actor that also does Punjabi work?
Please don’t tell me it’s just me!
If you love Konkona and/or Jimmy, tell us why and which is your favorite work of theirs?
Also, put studios on notice now if you would still be interested in a romance between Jimmy and Konkona, with Jimmy as the mature sensitive Punjabi man and Konkona as the confident fiery Bengali heroine. Maybe Mr. and Mrs. Iyer but light? Like, in order to get tickets on a luxury train trip, they pretend to be a couple on a honeymoon even though they are really strangers with nothing in common? I’d watch it!
