did you read film magazines when you were growing up? ( go away all of you who grew up in the 90s!)
do you remember raj kapoor getting drunk and chasing devi, the journalist? as a pre teen, the part of the anatomy he was chasing after, made for very exciting reading. and the starlet who accused rajesh khanna of molesting her. and who was it who chartered a plane or a helicopter and showered zeenat aman's balcony with flowers? did sulakshana pandit really go crazy with despair after sanjeev kapoor died? and what exactly did they do at the osho ashram, both vinod khanna and mahesh bhatt?
aah, so many questions...what a wonderful way of shaping your notions of romance and scandal.and the mind did travel- not to far off places, only the filmi parties in bby, inside ashirwaad where you know whose toothbrush was placed next to rajesh khanna's toothbrush, and ofcourse osho ashram. and where exactly was i reading these magazines? that i dont remember. we did not suscribe to them. not so many visits to the dentist and hair dressers back then. but clearly i read them.alot!
and today, as i google searched to see if a pal has got an award for his cinematography i found a filmi website. and what was the first article i read, why anil kapoor broke down? why? because he saw his daughter on screen for the first time.
what has the world come to????
