At the Movies | The ‘Expendables’ | Not

Every movie going experience is an adventure
You could bump into a friend, an actor or an usher
You could relate to what is unfolding on the silver screen
And stumble upon a toe or two in the dark

Be careful what you wish for though
When you’re looking for answers
The universe conspires to show you so many

Last week, my friend was making me jealous…
He went to watch a film that I’d been begging him to come see

And of course, Imtiaz Ali had to be there for a promotional event
He’s not expendable, that’s quite proven
Disturbingly rather, he’s being held back, tied to a chair

I like PVR. They always have promotional memorabilia on display.
I’ve clicked one too many pictures with Woody and others.
Of course, they’re pushing Aisha a bit much now.

Anyway, Aisha was running a contest.
A special goody bag would be awarded to an interesting picture
taken with an Aisha poster.

Well, to be flanked by an Imtiaz Ali look-alike on one hand
And the eternal cowboy, Woody on the other
Is a lucky girl’s perfect picture moment, mine at least.

Well, my life is always an adventure
I’ve been crushing on ‘Dhruv’ from Aisha
That we almost have the same name is just brownie points

Arunoday Singh was sitting in the same row
Just a few seats away. So, I had quite an eye-candy blast.
Amidst all the brawn of ‘The Expendables’

For those of you wondering…
He says his life is pretty much the same post Aisha.
I guess only a couple thousand more crushes, maybe.
My girlfriends agree. :P

And now for some Imtiaz Ali trivia.
I interviewed directors and stylists for a feature story.
And asked them one question.
Do you have a Hindi film inspired item of clothing?

Any guesses for Imtiaz Ali’s response?
A belt with a Sholay buckle.
Cho chweet na? I like.

Apparently, you can now get all of Sholay on your belt.

So, do you have a Hindi film inspired decorative item?

Signing off. Keep it filmy! Keep it stylish! *blows kisses*

PS – Yesterday India also celebrated Sholay’s 35th anniversary. Fitting.
