After the last weeks hectic Sunday I was clear that I wanted or rather needed rest. Got up at 8 though I would have loved to sleep a little more but with a toddler at home this will be a dream only. Made Mooli paratha’s for breakfast, Palak Paneer for lunch, season’s first Gajar Halwa, a fully loaded salad and the usual roti’s.
While I was feeding Arnav my hubby plugged in the I Pod and half an hour was spent dancing on all Item songs, from Pandyji Seeti to Dhinka Chika… we had fun. It was while dancing that I saw the top page of Mumbai Mirror. Ek tha Tiger was playing on Sony Max thus in a scurry T.V. was switched on and Arnav & his Mom were glued in.
When a Salman Khan movie is playing you should see both of us, we sit together open mouthed with our eyes not leaving the screen. My hubby in the meanwhile had gone to take bath. While we were watching the fabulous train sequence Arnav had an urge to do potty. He has awesome timing that ways, with a mouthful of roti & gajar ka halwa he said ‘potty aai’. So in the break I rushed to clean him up and when he protested ‘Salman Uncle!’, I told him that we will clean up before the break ends.
He was cleaned and scooted off. Half a minute later he rushed to me (I was still in the washroom cleaning myself) and said, ‘Salman Uncle a gaye, aao Mumma!!’
Sigh!!! Was so proud I of him? ha!
We saw the movie till he his afternoon bedtime. I too slept & rested but my sleep was quite disturbed. Wondering why? Well as per my diet plan I was to eat Golgappa’s as the evening snack and I couldn’t control my excitement in anticipation.
So we had golgappa’s and when we came back home it was Dabangg time as the movie was playing on some channel. But duty called and I was onto dinner preparation as we had a varied menu with me eating Mooli Paratha, Sonny boy had aloo paratha, Father In Law Masala Paratha & MIL & Hubby had poha. Yes we have a running dhaba here, you get what you want ;)
So while feeding my son Dabangg viewing was resumed with me & Arnav with their mouths open. As the movie was nearing its end I turned to my Hubby and said, ‘I can torture you a little more because Ek Tha Tiger starts again at 9 pm i.e. as soon as this one adds”. He said he was absolutely ok with it because he understands that I need to memorise what all clothes Salman Khan has worn in each sequences. I decided to ignore the sarcasm and went on to switch the channel. Thus we saw the opening sequence which we had missed in the morning show.
Man, how good he looks!! Sigh!!! And You should have seen him in Bog Boss on Saturday, that Killer pink shirt!
This exchange reminds me of the exchange we had a couple of days before Diwali, I think it was Saturday evening and they were playing Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and I was watching it earnestly & saying all the dialogues along with the characters.
Me: I remember all the dialogues of this movie.
Me: but I feel I remember that of Maine Pyaar Kiya more properly.
Me: Arrey they haven’t shown that movie from such a long time.
Him: I am sure we have a CD of it. Watch it!
Me: Who has the time and as is you have not unpacked the CD boxes. Sigh! What a movie it is!
Him: Do you know who was Ghatotkacha?
Me: *struggles hard with the memory of watching some Ramayana sequence couple of weeks back* Of course I do, he was the bird who had died while trying to save Sita from Ravana and had then later informed Raamji about the incident.
The look on his face said it all that I was totally off key.
Him: He was bheem’s son.
Me: Are you sure?
Next day while resting I suddenly remembered that I had to tell something to hubby (who was in the living room) so I came out and while we were talking I heard some music from a neighbour’s house..
Me: Maine Pyaar Kiya aa rahi hai kahin.
Him: *in a resigned manner* yes!
Me: *While switching on the TV* Why didn’t you tell me?
Him: You were resting
Me: So what, you remember yesterday only I was telling that I wanted to watch that movie? Kya aapka farz nahin banta ki batao?
And life goes on…..
If you are confused as to how I knew that MPK was playing, well the music that I had heard was the signature tune “tum ladki ho”.
Some things in life will never change and one of them is my love for Salman Khan and I am very proud that I have managed to pass on the legacy on to my son!
