lamba safar

1970s

Childhood

Introduced to movies

Loved the 'Dishum Dishum'

Watched 'Khoon Pasina'

Life changed

Bell-bottoms a must (Even to school! My mom had nightmares those days, trying to dissuade me).

Parted hair in the middle (Looked stupid on my curly head, but what the hell)

Imitated the deep dialogue delivery

Had a folder full of his pictures

Hoped to grow as tall...Never did..Doesn't matter

Adolescence

Other movies. Hollywood. Many favorites. But he's still closest to the heart.

Discovered that my birthday falls 3 days after his!! (That's like discovering nirvana. That's like family. That's connection).

Working life.

Dream of making a movie with him in it.

The awe hasn't diminished much (though not as strong)

Happy Birthday, Mr. Bachchan. You're still tops.

My first ever film happens to be Shahenshah. And what a movie that was. wow!!!

And I still cant get over Agneepath.... the way in which he says "Vijay Dinanath Chauhan....pura naam....Dinanath Chauhan....baap ka naam......" and each sentence that ends with "hai"

Yeh saala telefoon bhi ajeeb cheez hai....aadmi sala bolta kuch hai, sochta kuch hai, karta kuch hai....hai
