I spy, with my little eye...

Ever since I moved to Bombay I keep complaining that I never spot any of the stars who are supposed to be all over the city. Not for me casually running into film stars at Joggers' Park or walking past them in the market. I've had people visit for a week and meet Dimple Kapadia at the airport. Someone else saw Hema Malini. Someone else was late boarding a flight and was put on the last small van to the aircraft with...Shahrukh Khan. And I saw...you know, that guy who dumps his father at 2nd Innings House in Lage Raho Munnabhai...and then doesn't regret it till Munna hangs him by the ankles from his office window....yeah, that guy. Sheesh!!

So many months of whining later, I feel like I totally got my due when I had, 2 tables away from me, Helen and Salim Khan. As I was leaving, I smiled at her. And she half-smiled back. The vamp Helen. The sizzling siren. The one who writhes around Amitabh in Don, and who's always Chin chin choo to me. And with her, Salim Khan, half of the Sholay magic story.

I'll stop complaining now. Besides, Karishma Kapoor walked into Costa Coffee that day and stood around for ages. And I was totally cool about it. I think I'm finally a Mumbaikar now.

A bonafide Mumbaikar, eh? :)

And by the way who met Shabana Azmi? And I am sure in the course of your work, you'd meet many more, and then you'll perhaps get more than half smiles :)

Spirited Seeker: :) You remembered! What I mean is that in this city I should be casually bumping into them, not having to make appointments to see them!

Bong Mom: Hahaha, okay Sandeepa, will remember that.

Eve's Lungs: Was with Kiran, Rohini and Mad Momma at the time we spotted Karishma.

Sbora: Oh yes, Deepak Malhotra - the guy who was hot till he opened his mouth! Yes, I'm luckier than you :)Although Vijayendra Ghatge was quite the dude in some of those B-grade porn-horror type films, like Shaitanon ka Mandir or something!
