Sanjay Jha

Must be the Thursday morning buzz ... I dont't know but I can not NOT write about this ... My second stint in Bollywood - Sanjay Jha commented on my post
Now I have always been a big fan of Jhaji's funny and satirical Praan Jaaye Par Shaan Na Jaye and have been waiting to watch his controversial movie "Strings - Bound By Faith" but I never expected Sanjay Jha to post a comment on my post ... I am sooooo happy :)

Thank You for your response. I will watch Praan Jaye again tonight and also watch Strings as soon as it is available here. And keep blogging :)

Actually now that the buzz has settled (somewhat) I must really appreciate -
1. Sanjay Jha's intellect on becoming a part of the blogosphere as they call it ... I mean if I am involved with media why would I NOT want to be a part of it!!
2. The power of the blog ... I know a lot has been said already but I never cease to be amazed at the power and speed of information that we enjoy ... sure the Telly may have sparked the downfall of Communism in erstwhile USSR - but blogs, message boards and the internet are taking everything to the next level and a couple more!

And if you really want to know what my fist stint in Bollywood was - well ... I was one of the characters in a happy-song in Aastha - a film by Basu Bhattacharya. Not only did I get to spend two whole days on location and get a first hand experience of how movies are made - but I had the fortune of enjoying the company of Rekha and Om Puri for the two days as well :)
For those who are not tired of hearing it ... Rekha looks amazingly incredibly stunning for her age - and she's a lot of fun too - no airs of being such a big star! and Om Puri is a very funny person - didn't expect that. We had a lot of fun during the shoot ... but thats a loooooong story for some other time!

Chalo then ... bahuut boasting kar liya ... time to get back to Earth :)
