Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Catch Up on Breathe!

Happy Saturday! I am hiding in my air conditioned bedroom and catching up on streaming serieses. It was nice being at the lake house for two weeks, swimming and sailing and enjoying sunshine and blah blah, but it is also nice to sit in a dim cool room and melt my brain with tv.

Things to talk about!

Shahrukh reposted a cute thing on twitter, and I know we all care deeply about anything SRK related:

Salman tweeted a birthday thing for Kat that once again made me say WHY CAN’T YOU CRAZY KIDS JUST GET TOGETHER!!!!

Anil Kapoor posted a thing on instagram for Amitabh, a little clip from an old old concert performance which looks AMAZING. I wish I could see one of those old school no rules concerts.

And Hrithik posted a selfie that is so intimate it’s almost hard to look at:

And finally, just an interesting general question, today is Perfect Family Day. How would you define a Perfect Family?

I think I would say, a family where everyone puts the happiness of everyone else above their own.

  1. You HAVE to watch the new Netflix show ‘Indian Matchmaking’. It’s a reality show following a traditional matchmaker as she arranges marriages for various obnoxious kids…the people keep listing their demands (must be pretty, tall, rich etc.) and the matchmaker keeps rolling her eyes asking them to compromise. The show is 100% accurate. It’s hilarious and infuriating at the same time….it’s beyond fascinating to see the process!


    • Here is my debate! Is this show perhaps too real? Like, if I would find these people irritating in real life, can I handle spending voluntary time watching them onscreen?

      I guess my question is, is there at least one pleasant point of view character? do you feel sympathy for the matchmaker herself, if no one else?


      • Yes some of the people are actually nice and you are rooting for them to find love. Some are obnoxious and you want to slap them.
        The matchmaker actually has a good heart….she says I am trying to help people find love and happiness…she is like every Indian aunty I know…lovable but problematic…


        • I’m going to second this request. This is one that’s hard to turn away from, even though some of the clients/parents are just too irritating for words.


          • Well hey, I’ll be laid up with a swollen foot for a month (I hope), might be the perfect time to watch a silly reality show.

  2. I’m struck by how much Hritik looks like his father in that selfie. Woah. Do we all become our parents when we age?
    Re your perfect family question, I am reminded of the quote: “all happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way…”


  3. Wait, Shahrukh has his own wax statue at home??? I thought that’s the Tussauds one.

    I will not wish Salman on any woman, he can be the good son, brother, uncle, friend,….. and maybe adopt kids if he wants. However, I’ve been watching 90s David Dhawan films for distraction from work, and if he had to get together with someone, it should’ve been Karisma, not Ash, not Kat. They gel so well!

    Speaking of random things, recently I learnt that different celebs/actors were related to each other. Like Jagdeep (who passed recently) was Javed Jaffrey’s father. And Shikha Talsania is Tiku Talsania’s daughter.

    There’s talk on twitter about a big announcement from YRF tomorrow, any ideas? I suspect it’s rumor, but it is their 50th year and I remember reading earlier they’re planning big things.


    • I also want Salman and Karisma to get together! I had hope for a while, she was divorced and he was still single, clearly her two kids would be a bonus in his eyes, but now she is in a serious relationship with someone else I think so they missed their window.

      A while back I was hoping their announcement would be their own digital platform. I suppose it could still be, but I feel like if they were building that, we would have seen more signs of it.

  4. I may actually have to disagree about the perfect family. Trying to build my own I have come to realize that sometimes you have to put yourself first. Only then will you be in a state of mind to be the best you for everyone else’s sake. But I do agree that it’s important to value everyone’s wants and needs and find a compromise together. Communication, yay!


    • How about “putting your needs ahead of others because of a realization that you need to do that in order to be a better family member”? So the bottom line is still thinking about the greater good, not just what you need.

  5. I feel like I haven’t been commenting as much as usual in the last week or so because 1) I’ve been busier than I was at the start of the summer 2) I was in a pretty rough mental space over the last couple weeks, but I trekked down to see friends over the weekend and I think that helped a lot, so unless I get busy again (which I probably will) I’m kind of back. If anyone even noticed I was gone.

    Also WOW HRITHIK!!!


    • Of course we noticed you were gone! I always notice my little people when they are missing. Happy you are in a happier place now. And it still stands, you get to pick any movie you want for Friday the 7th 🙂 Even Humpty
