I gotta tell you guys, ever since we announced that we’d be interviewing Barun Sobti, our collective Twitter timelines have been going nuts with Sobtians tweeting in questions and messages for Barun! Several of you sent in questions (and we asked some of them), but many of you also just wanted to tell Barun how much you love him. So we took a few messages from Twitter and the comments of our blog, and gave Barun to read them out and respond! Have a look; you’ll love it :)

Team MM: Prav wrote a comment saying, “In one of his interviews I remember he said that he doesn’t believe in fandom cos once his show IPKKND would be over all the fans will forget him. So here we are today truly madly and deeply crazy about him.” So your fanbase is still alive and kicking. Any messages for these fans?

Barun: I’m pleasantly surprised, actually. It’s a known fact that when you’re out of sight, you’re out of mind. But people have made a very deliberate effort to keep me in contention. I did an interview with a journalist called Stuti in Kolkata and she called me back saying what crazy fandom I have. She said she’s interviewed a lot of poeple but hasn’t seen anything like this. So at that time I was thinking, these people really have lived up to their word and they really do like things the way I’ve done them. I think people kind of relate to me because I’m a simple guy like these people are. So I just want to thank them and just hope I live up to your expectations and do things you like.

Team MM: What’s the craziest thing a fan has done for you?

Different things. A lotta people wanna hug you… it’s happened a lot lately, people who have seen me on the road lately have asked “Can I hug you? And kiss you?” That’s a little awkward when you’re with your wife. They’ll ask you to say dialogues and stuff. But it’s all taken good spirit and it’s nice, they’re all dignified people.

Interesting that he mentions hugging since so many of you asked us to pass on hugs to Barun! :) So of course we did – our feisty photographer Khyati Gandhi stepped out from behind the camera to give Barun that hug on your behalf. Yup, it’s a tough job, working with MissMalini. ;)
