Have I told you that I love Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Sorry, but it’s probably the



Killer audition

That being one of the highlights of my week, the other was an audition for the role of a psycho killer on a


type TV show. After taking a couple of deep


breaths, I walked into the audition room where I executed the murder by stabbing the imaginary victim repeatedly. Thereafter, I was told to break into sinister laughter and finally break down. Full throttle and unplugged. Too SRK? Not to worry, I did another (safety) take where I played it neutral, like Anthony ‘


’ Hopkins.

The preview

The mother of highlights this week has been the completion of my first movie. After a journey of its own, it is finally edited; complete with dubbing, sound effects and colour correction. The preview with the team too has taken place. So the film’s complete? – Yes, but has it found any takers yet? - No and will it get an official release? - I don't know. We're hoping it gets distributors, considering it has no stars or songs and is shorter than standard feature films. Nevertheless for me it’s been my first experience of working with a film crew, playing a character for over 90 minutes as opposed to a 30 second ad.

The review

I got great feedback for my performance and was rated 8 on 10 by my brother. Everyone needs an honest critic and my big-bro is just that. So there’s 1) what people think, 2) what I think they think, and finally there’s what I think. The first, ladies and gentleman, is beneficial to know, the second is a colossal waste of time and it’s the last that really matters.

Always remember this; confidence comes from how you feel about yourself, it’s isn’t what someone says about you that makes you who you are. I used to be overly concerned about what other people thought, till I realised how psychologically and mentally debilitating it is. It’s ultimately your life and what you want from it, even if it’s death, as essayed beautifully in


. The hangover still continues...
