Wondering where madame Mukherji has been lately? She was spotted in Zurich with boyfriend Aditya Chopra chilling in the Alps. Its apparently their favorite place, besides what’s a real Bollywood romance without a real Bollywood romance dance-around-in-my-mini-skirt-in-the-snow setting? And don’t blame me for letting the cat out of the bag (or in this case the polar bear out of hibernation), of course everybody knows. Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra “came out” at Karan Johar’s mom Hiroo Johar’s birthday last month. I guess Rani’s not so worried about having this affect her career (what career?) anymore! Do I hear wedding bells & babies?
Oh and while I was searching for cheesy Bollywood song-and-dance scenes in Switzerland I chanced upon this little gem by jacquie876 on YouTube. No idea what made her do this (but apparently it was her contribution to the “Dance Pe Chance” contest from Switzerland!) I love that in the comments she explains her fixation for Bollywood saying, “I think it was after 2003 that I regularly saw posters of Indian movies at cinemas here. Probably Monsoon Wedding and Lagaan boosted it a lot. I knew some people who were mad enough to watch these 4-hour monsters, saw some fascinating trailers.. Then one day I wandered aimlessly through a video shop, spotted Dil Se and thought why not.. Well, from the moment when that train started moving with people dancing on top, and my heart started beating to ARRs locomotive breath sound, I was hooked :-)”
That’s just awesome, like the mausam.
Oh and did I tell you about this one time (in Montreal of all places) that I took the movie Kidnap for my boyfriend to see and we turned it into a drinking game? Yup, every time you heard the word “kidnap” or saw Sanjay Dutt’s chest hair you had to have a shot! Needless to say we got very drunk, very fast (and were quite perturbed when at one point someone said “abducted” instead of kidnap, I felt cheated.) Sorry Imran, you know I love you :)
