Happy Wednesday! And happy day I have my last doctor’s appt and my last physical therapy appointment! Hopefully. Maybe.
Reading: Oh shoot, I had a thing for this! Right, not Indian film related, just an insane human interest story my sister sent me: https://people.com/human-interest/distressed-kayaker-saved-by-priests-floating-tiki-bar/
Watching: Seder-Masochism! The same woman who did Sita Sings the Blues takes on the Old Testament. I’m only halfway in, and love it. Also, tonight I have a friend movie night and I am going to make them all watch Jab Harry Met Sejal and make them LOVE it. As all right thinking people should.
Thinking: Hair is complicated. I like my bangs now, we get along, but I can’t stop fiddling with them. Also, there is this whole thing where the first time you wash dyed hair the dye runs off and stains stuff? I don’t understand how it happens, and I really don’t understand how it happens the first time and then not again. Anyway, I washed it last night and had it rolled in a towel as long as possible, let’s see if I avoided stains.
Listening: It’s Lucky Ali’s birthday week! He’s not the biggest name out there, but he’s got some good stuff.
Now, question for you: we’ve been talking about Baazigar and Shilpa’s amazing transformation between that film and her later movies (which I honestly think was just growing up, losing the baby fat, getting her eyebrows professionally done, and better haircare). What other actor/actresses are there that have had amazing mid-career appearance transformations (with or without suspected plastic surgery)?
This is an odd choice, but I’m gonna say Ranveer! It’s subtle, but when he started out his face and body were sort of youthful and unformed looking. Now, he can still easily play in his early 20s, he doesn’t look obviously “older”, but his face has aged in some way I can’t even define.
