Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Week ANUSHKA HAD HER BABY?!?!?

Happy Monday! And happy day that Anushka and Virat had a baby!!!! Isn’t that exciting?

Here is where you get to ask me anything you want, from “what should Anushka and Virat name their baby?” to “whose birthday is it today?” Just keep swinging back to this post all week as you think of new things you want to ask!

Now, question for you! What should Anushka and Virat name their daughter?

I don’t think I can improve on “Ratka”, but there is also “Nushvi” and “Arat” in the horrible world of combined names.

    • Oh, that’s really sucky. He was super super nice to me. I worked with him when I was researching my Masters thesis, and he was very encouraging about everything. Just so folks here get a sense of that, here is the email he wrote me when I let him know that my book was being published:

      Dear Margaret,

      Congratulations on your book! There is absolutely no shame in putting out a “little cheap eBook”–in fact, I think you’ll ultimately be very glad you did. I’ve been driven a little nuts by people complaining about Funky Bollywood not being available in digital form. Also, the siege mentality many print publishers have developed in the current climate makes them not always fun people to deal with!

      I’m looking forward to reading Don’t Call It Bollywood when it comes out, and I’ll be happy to shell out the $2.99; I’m always keen to support a fellow author.

      All the best, Todd

    • Just checking, how did you find this? I went to his blogs and there’s no official post or anything, so I am hoping somehow it might be false.


  1. Happy for Anushka and Virat. I’m sorry to hear about Todd Stadtman. It seems that he was a real gentleman.

    I saw this news and rushed over to share. Rumor is Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi will be doing a Hindi film together. By the Andhadhun director! I hope it’s true! What do you think?

    I bought a ticket to see Master on Wednesday afternoon. My second time venturing into a (distanced, sanitized, and masked) movie theater since the pandemic. On one hand I feel like it’s a risk I shouldn’t take, but on the other, I feel like it’s a manageable risk. It will be my first Sethu film on a big screen. I’m expecting a big dumb mass entertainer. Oh, second question–Master’s filmmakers have apparently not decided to put out a trailer ahead of the release. Why do you think they decided that?


    • Ooo, I am excited about Vijay and Kat working with Raghavan!!!! he is very good to his female characters, especially in terms of the pain they feel and how they handle it. that feels like a sweet spot for Kat, making us feel for her when she is in pain. And Vijay, of course, just needs a good character and he can run with it and make it amazing.

      Yaaaaay, movies in theaters! So jealous!!! You must come back and report to us.

      This isn’t the first time I’ve run into a southern film without a trailer. Song videos, for instance, almost never release in advance. I think it is a PR policy, rather than give people something to discuss and pick over in advance, they trust that the star power will get people in to see the movie and word of mouth will take it from there.

  2. I personally don’t like Ratka. It sounds like it could be an insult. Arat sounds like a boy’s name and apparently the baby is a girl. I want them to name her Nushvi.


  3. My Christmas card has arrived! It’s so christmas’y with Maddy Santa . Thank you 🙂

    I also have a question:
    Are there an Indian movies about the men who, for some lame reason (e.g because she dated before, or was married or isn’t a virgin) leave the women they love, but later understand the reason was stupid and regresive and come back to her?
    I’m in a mood for something like this.
