Heyyy, I am back.. Sorry for not replying to ur comments on time. This “time” thing has got too stingy with me [or should I say, I am demanding more these days] :-) Its like 24 hours is not enough. But I am loving this kind of busy work life, as this had been my dream always.
Right now, despite the fact that I am sleepy and I ve to catch an early morning flight from chennai to cochin, I feel like writing about something – something which happened today. Something that I found too interesting and worth sharing.
I was narrating my script to my cousin brother and a very close friend today at home. Even my brother dhyan was there, as usual, criticizing every bit of my work. After I finished narrating the first 13 scenes, he chucked all of us out coz “he had to study for his exams.” Dhyan studying for exams, that’s a rare happening!!!
Having sent out, three of us had to find a place. We went to “amethyst”. This is one of my favorite joints in chennai. You can sip a coffee and sit the whole day, and they wouldn’t tell u to get out. They are great people. Long live amethyst!!
When I started my narration there, that’s when this interesting thing happened. One of my favorite directors of tamil cinema, Mr.Gautham Menon walks in and sits at the table right next to mine. I ve been a great admirer of “kaakka kaakka”, therefore an admirer of Gautham too. Though I am not a big fan of his later films, I still ve great respect for him for “kaakka kaakka”
His entry into amethyst definitely disturbed my focus on narration a bit. But very soon I started loving this game of life. On one side was the master, discussing about his film which is going to release [vinnaithaandi varuvaayaa]. On the other side was me, discussing about my film which is going to start. He must be worried about his film, as I am worried about mine. The master was just two feet away from the beginner, both sharing the same passion – CINEMA!!
I didn’t go and meet him. I felt it ll be like breaking into his privacy. The actual fun was in “not meeting him” and remaining as an admirer- an admirer perhaps he would never know!!
Strange things happen in life. And that’s why we say, life is great!!
