Farewell - Jiah Khan ......a tribute

Jiah Khan (real name Nafisa Khan) - does this name ring a bell?
She made her debut opposite none other than Amitabh Bachhan - a man going strong since donkey's years, followed it up with a meaty role opposite Aamir Khan and then given a break by Sajid Khan in Houseful opposite Akshay Kumar.....
This kind of a dream debut should have ensured Jiah Khan a life full of glamorous successful roles and a kind of euphoria reserved for superstars.
However what happened was just the opposite, she just couldn't get the right roles, she wasn't promoted the way she should have.
Why? Was it because she was not media savvy, or she couldn't handle her PR in a proper manner? Was it because the industry didn't give her the kind of recognition she deserved? Or was it because she was going through a relationship crisis?
Whatever the reason her alleged suicide on the 3rd of June 2013 is a shocking step extremely hard to digest.



Truly it's a male dominated cruel world out there. While male stars keep hanging around till their teeth fall out 'literally' the girls are made to struggle and keep begging for roles till the time they are there. Why is this crappy behavior meted out to girls in the industry?
Consider Sunny Leone or even Nargis Fakhri...while Nargis has truly proved her talent in Rockstar in a dream debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor, yet she's struggling for big banner roles. Why?
Sunny Leone although a good actor still keeps getting snide and uncharitable remarks on and off, even from so called distinguished ppl like Nana and Anil Kapoor...
So who are all these self styled desperate people who are running vicious campaigns against struggling starlets? and why?
The film industry artistes should get together and form a pool of talent....from where they can be picked up with dignity and their worth is fully realized and made full use of.
Professionalism needs to come to the fore so that the dignity and honor of struggling upcoming artistes is constantly not downgraded by self styled villains, there are no cases of 'couch' casting and no starlet is hounded for all the 'wrong' reasons, whether male or female.
Go ahead and do it and save a lot of other lives from being lost or being thrown into oblivion......R.I.P. Jiah Khan!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ..............Deepika - Ranbir at their 'loveliest' best

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a zest for life kind of movie..... It's a movie which will shake the most laziest of persons out of their reverie and for once make them wish they could live life all over again....
Needless to say the performances of Ranbir Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Deepika Padukone Kalki all are wonderful...the movie is balanced it never goes overboard, even while explaining the facts of love, relationships, life to Kabir Thapar (Ranbir Kapoor) towards the end. The song 'Kabira' says it all.
If directors start making such beautiful movies in Bollywood I'll be forced to say 'I'm proud of you guys.'
The movie deserves to be seen for all the stellar performances, the songs and dances of Ranbir and Deepika as well as the poignant tender love scenes between them...and yes it does have a kiss scene between the two....which is beautiful.
Enough said about it.....now go and watch....don't bother about the stars....the movie is an ace!



Dugri beckons.........the birthplace of Guruji

Dugri......a small quaint village in Punjab very near to Ludhiana as well as Khanna. The birthplace of Guruji and hence a tirath sthal....

Visited Dugri on 31st May 2013...it was an experience to cherish forever...
uploading some pics.....of His ashram, His house, His car, His Mandir, hope you like it.....Jai Guruji.....have a close look at the last pic...a young boy who has an uncanny resemblance to Guruji....the face cut, the glowing flawless complexion, the same magnetic smile...don't know what drew me to him...he in fact showed me the place around and then I clicked a photograph of him....
