As I walked off the aircraft an indescribable feeling washed over me. It’s the same feeling that hits me every time I start a new film. I arrived in Thailand a few days ago to begin shooting for Anjaana Anjaani with Ranbir Kapoor and directed by Siddharth Anand. It’s quite a hectic shoot schedule that will take us across the globe with few pit stops in Mumbai and I’m really looking forward to it.
We got to Bangkok a day before the shoot began and after I settled in, I settled down to write this week’s column. Since I had some alone time, it gave me the chance to read through all the feedback that you all have been sending in and decided that I must and respond to as many as I could! So here goes...
Hey Ankit (Singh) - it is unfortunate that we didn’t get a chance to meet either in Mumbai or Delhi! I’ll ask my friends at HT to keep you in mind the next time we plan an interactive session.
Sushil (Markandeya) - thank you for your thought provoking mail. I am aware of the situation and will definitely try and bring attention to it whenever I get the opportunity.
Hey Ahana - The only advice I can give you on how to deal with the crush is similar to what was in my column a few weeks ago. Have faith and take the leap... it’s better than regretting that you did not even attempt it!
Ravishankar (Iyer) - your mail just so amazingly sweet. Thank you so much. It was great to meet you too.
Prerna (Relia) - I will try and work something out but I honestly don’t think that is the answer to your problem. I think you need to find a more realistic solution.
Marianne (Thompson) - Are you the same Marianne from Twitter? I’m sure my team and I can figure out ways to meet with my friends in the UK whenever I am there next. Will ask HT to also keep it on their radar!!
Raghav (Chopra) - You said a simple ‘Hi’ would do... so here it is... Hi Raghav!!!
Priyanka (Srivastava), Annu (Shokeen), Taapsi... glad you gals are enjoying the ‘Sister Series’! Will definitely write more, don’t worry!!
That’s all the space they have given me this week guys. Wish me luck for Anjaana Anjaani. Will update on all that happens on the shoot in next week’s column. Ciao!
