The film biz is indeed everywhere. As I first set foot inside the national arrivals terminal at the airport, I was greeted by an SRK Tag Heuer ad. Then SRK was over at the hotel the other night for an awards ceremony, Mr. Bachchan pere was due by today for another event, and Jimmy Sheirgill was at the coffee shop for a bite to eat this evening. (He was interviewed on Anupama Chopra’s Picture This Friday evening, and revealed the most beautiful singing voice. Quite stunning.)
Pleasant visit to Mount Mary Basilica (of Amar, Akbar, Anthony fame) earlier today, interesting to see Indian touches (removal of shoes at the entrance to the church, garlands around the neck of Jesus on the crucifix, and a very attractive hijra waiting on the altar to touch the feet of Jesus on the crucifix). My favorite moment was when a street dog came trotting in and proceeded up the center aisle of the church. Priceless.
Here are a few pics:
Only thing missing is Sreenivasan Jain:
