Default YetiBlog® - 16th June 2008 - Back at the bookstore

N_C and I enter Crossword. There are a few people in and around the bookshop. A lady is reading and smiling to herself while her husband is browsing.

The Don and The Yeti® are enjoying this aimless drift through knowledge and entertainment. We converse at at a little bookshelf with some very interesting books.
Suddenly it's like I've been hit by lightning. I yank this out of the shelf:

YetiBlog® - The Don, My Father's wedding and Strawberries on Rajinikanth's face.-97881871084432.jpg

Oh dear God. I turn for moral support to the Don, but I don't turn completely because I am afraid I am going to have a loud burst of laughter, complete with flying saliva.
While I look goggle-eyed and purple-faced with laughter, one eye on the book and the other at Gautam, I have time to realise 2 things.

1) Gautam is on the phone, talking to his fine lady, but from the corner of his eye, he has seen the book I have picked out and has walked over rather quickly to peer at the book and eventually my reaction.

2) Rajinikanth is not a natural blonde.

Gautam has seen this image of the superstar before and he is midly amused. I am very amused.

We leaf through the book together. He is still on the phone. The book is full of interesting photos of Rajinikanth.

What he really looks like:

Views: 14896
Size:  38.6 KB

Name:  2.jpg
Views: 7303
Size:  24.5 KB
What he has looked like in some movies. Incredible. I have stopped laughing and I am marvelling at the man and his chameleon ways.

(all images so far courtesy google images and cafeboys)

At this point, I turn the page and I am faced with a picture of Rajinikanth with strawberries on his face.

Gautam is a little distracted because he is still talking to the pretty lady. he turns and sees my face. Slowly his eyes follow mine and look into the book.

Umm.. baby I'll call you back, OK? Bye.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is past 10pm in a quiet bookshop.

All hell has broken loose. 2 fully grown men have exploded spontaneously.

The air is broken with the sounds of 2 men who want to roll on the ground, squeal like little girls, slap their thighs, whack each other on their backs and laugh like they've never laughed before.
Everytime we stop laughing, one of us starts again.

There are times I am laughing so hard that no sound is coming out of my mouth, just a hiss of exhaled air and torrential tears to accompany that.
Many minutes have passed and my chest is hurting but we just cannot stop.

Avatar!!! AVATAR!!!

N_C manages to gaspa few words between long breaths and laughter. he can hardly see, his eyes are all closed up, face all screwed up and the tears in the way too.
He pulls out his iPhone and turns the camera on.

He cannot do it, his hands are shaking with laughter. With great difficulty he manages to take this blurry picture. His hands will not stop shaking with mirth.

5 minutes later he cannot take it any more and turns around laughing and calls his lady back. I am still browsing through the books, grinning like an idiot.

He is still on the phone. Slowly my face returns to normal and then into excitement as I finally find a proper copy of Hitler's Mein Kampf with photos.
YetiBlog® - The Don, My Father's wedding and Strawberries on Rajinikanth's face.-img00010_thumb.jpg

I quickly pay for it and turn to Gautam. he is listlessly staring at the DVDs. I take my little packet from the cashier and join him quietly. We discuss movies and music for a while.

Hungry?
Ya.
Chal jaenge khaana khaane. They have a completely droolworthy Tom Yum soup here.

To be continued

If you think this is chameleon-esque stuff, I am not sure what you would say after seeing the latest Kamal Haasan flick - Dasavatharam.

Well, I'll tell you a secret - but don't tell anyone, lol. A few years ago I was offered (in complete seriousness) a role in a Telugu movie.

I refused. They insisted for a while and gave up. I had to grow a thick moustache and play the role of the villain. I just said no and still laugh about it to this day.

While i read that, i was guffawing here too.
I think i would have actually kneeled down, banging my palm on the floor or even rolled on the floor literally.

Try youtube videos of Vijaykanth or rather 'Captain Vijaykanth' iirc- my friends from Chennai made me aware of his mightiness and i could have died laughing that night if they hadn't stopped sending me links.
He makes Mithunda and others look silly/sissy.

If not acting i hope atleast you can think about scripting a movie someday. Hope the producers get to read your blogs here.

You should read that Rajnikanth book,Sam.
Meanwhile, watch this video which should explain my avatar and the cover of the book.

What was the intended Censor Board rating of the movie in which you were offered the role? Or were things like Censor Board too silly for the producers?
