Happy Friday! I just rapid re-released all my Sanjay posts, I’m driving to work so I can zip home, walk Dog Hazel and then zip out again to catch the Sanju release at the earliest possible show. Busy times! But first I want to take a moment to remember a completely different kind of film that I still think is Ranbir’s best performance.
I wrote this back when I read his autobiography, before he even had his babies. But I think that last option still works, just change it so that the babies are twins and Karan is covering up their background for their own safety by claiming they were from a surrogate.
I will be putting up detailed posts on Karan’s book later this week, probably Wednesday and Friday. But in the meantime, I immediately got distracted by his declaration that he doesn’t believe in marriage any more and will never marry. Because that’s always what the rom-com hero says at the beginning, right? And then there are elaborate plot shenanigans and coincidences and he changes his mind?
I am super sick, so my brain head typing fingers aren’t really working. I can’t handle anything complicated, like my usual “reasons I love you style birthday posts”. But I think I am up to writing a little narrative of Ashok Kumar’s life. Even if I can’t handle all the many many news stories that are coming out and I should really be talking about (nothing huge, like Shahrukh getting a divorce or something, but I’d really like to talk about the Censor Board certificate for Ae Dil at some point in the distant future when I no longer feel like death).
