Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me on SALMAN’S BIRTHDAY???

Happy Monday! I have a new computer! I no longer have random freezes and pauses, it’s a miracle.

Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “Is Salman Okay after being bitten by a snake?” to “Should we be watching Antim for his birthday?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new questions!

And now, two questions for you! First, which of these two things is most Salman-y?

He went out to meet the fans/press on his birthday and explained why he was in the hospital earlier. He saw a snake in his farmhouse, lovingly picked it up on a stick, took it outside, and was bitten three times. Taken to the hospital for treatment, recovered, came back to greet the press. And then calmly told them the whole story. And, the best part, Dharmendra somehow heard about this and called Salman to ask how he was because he was worried!!!!

Or second, is it my old favorite, Salman announcing a new clothing line for humans while not wearing clothes on a horse?

  1. Question about cell phone usage in India – Atrangi Re, a modern romance with references to COVID – has almost no cell phones. Not even older flip phones. The main male character is a student, but of social standing to be married to the Dean’s daughter – but no phone, and in the subtitles no discussion of the fact that he doesn’t have a phone. The main female character is similarly phone-less, though her status in her family doesn’t make that a surprise.

    About two years ago I learned from commenters here that most films in India were streamed onto phones. ANd in fact it easy to stream einthusan onto my phone, even with minimal wifi or only 1 bar of service. But this movie makes me think cell phones are not as ubiquitous in India as I previously thought.

    • Ooo, this is really interesting!!!! I think it might be that this is one of the few movies to accurately show the rural/urban divide. Based on my research, the rural areas of India do not have internet, cell phone, any of that. And everyone pretends this isn’t the case.

      If I think about this movie, they focus on the lack of cell phones in the Bihar village. But then once they are in the Tamil village at the wedding, and in Delhi at the med school, there is cell coverage. So that’s a really subtle thing, to show how Sara’s village is just completely cut off from everything, like it’s a different world from the rest of India.
