Look Who’Stalking’

Collage Fangirl 2_edited.jpg

When the earliest promos of 3 idiots came out, the visuals were always of a Math class. I had the audacity to believe that the movie script should somehow have a HeyMath! plugin. So, I headed to IIM Bangalore where the movie was being shot to try my luck with the Director.

Plan B was to get Aamir Khan to wear the HeyMath! t-shirt on his daily runs. I achieved only plan Z which was to somehow meet the 3 stars and take pictures with them.

People who achieve ‘rockstar’ status in their respective fields and celebrities in general are alluring to me. I always wonder what they are like face to face and one on one. The caption of this section might make me sound a bit weird but honestly my intent is driven purely by curiosity and intrigue. My first brush with stalking (!) was when I was 18 and the West Indies cricket team visited Delhi for a test series. I was all dreamy about the possibility of meeting Clive Lloyd at a party. Eventually, that did not happen but at least I convinced a friend to get me an autograph. Opportunities for running into cricketers opened up big time after Park Sheraton (a 5 min walk from my home in Chennai) was designated as the CSK ‘adda’. With zero guilt, I co-opted my 2 girls in these misdemeanours! 

Some planned, Some serendipitous....
