How do you feel about flying? I’m not crazy about it but I do love airports and the people-watching opportunity it affords. I also really loved The Terminal with Tom Hanks (based on a the true story of one Alfred Mehran didjya know?) but I digress. I recently discovered (courtesy the local tabloid buzz) that there’s quite a bit of celebrity action, quite literally in the air!
For instance, Emraan Hashmi (would you believe this is his least goofy looking picture on the internet?! Lol) celebrated his birthday mid-air on an Emirates flight from Cape Town to Mumbai via Dubai, with his relative, director Mohit Suri and the unit of the movie Crook. Just not sure how they pulled off the party past “the great divide” considering the unit was seated in “cattle class” and the stars in “business”. Happy Birthday, anyway.
And it turns out Ekta Kapoor HATES long-distance flights. Even the slightest hint of turbulence makes her jittery and that’s the primary reason why the Balaji czarina hasn’t visited the US, but now duty calls and she had to hop on a flight to Los Angeles on Tuesday night followed by stops in Japan and Singapore. “I will be reciting the Hanuman Chalisa when I am awake. I don’t know if I will be awake though, because I plan to pop four sleeping pills as soon as I board.” But Ekta how ever will you meet your own ballsy Mr. Clooney if you’re not even awake to notice? #fail
