Contrary to the popular assumption, I do read newspapers, whenever I can. I have even watched two episodes of Coffee with Karan (the point I’m trying to make is, I also watch tv, whenever I find the time). I note down a lot of things that I find funny, but I always end up loosing them. Here are the ones that have survived.
“When I heard that, I knew the film would not work, as youngsters were not able to relate to its basic premise. But mark my words, Kisna will prove to be a classic.”
(Subhash Ghai, as told to Mini Anthikad-Chhibber, METROPLUS (The Hindu), Chennai Edition, 7th September, 2006. link)
To appreciate this comment, one has to watch the movie “KISNA, the warrior poet”, but I don’t recommend it because I don’t want to loose my blog readers. The classic catch-22 situation.
“Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan”
(Sanjay Leela Bhansali, in Coffee with Karan, when asked to order the three khans in the order of preference (in the rapid question round or whatever it is called))
I think that the film Clueless was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it’s true lightness.
(Alicia Silverstone, Actress, on the movie Clueless.)
“My favourite horror movies are the ones made by Karan Johar.”
(Ram Gopal Verma. This started a whole thread of controversy. Incidentally, RGV also said that he thinks Karan Johar is a better director than James Cameron and K3G is a better movie than Titanic.)
“…I clearly told Abbas-Mustan that it would be very difficult for me to play a dumb character. But they convinced me that my character only plays “dumb”…”
(Sameera Reddy, to Ali Bin Abdulla. The New Sunday Express, Chennai edition, Feb 11, 2007)
I’ll repost this article again when the movie (Race) comes out. When asked what does she do besides acting, she said, “… Given a chance, I’d love to spend all 24 hours of the day at the gym.” The only other thing she does is spend time with her parents whenever she can.
What a life!
