in love

In our house, Ranbir Kapoor is mentioned several times a day.


One of our family members is madly in love with him.

I am meant to make it very clear to all and sundry that that family member is not me. I am not supposed to love Ranbir Kapoor, though I am allowed to like him, in a maternal sort of way.

One of our family members also hopes to be an actress, work with Ranbir Kapoor, have him fall madly in love with her, and marry her, one day.

I, meanwhile, am trying hard to imagine what it would mean to be the 'samdhan' of Neetu Kapoor. And I am glad for the temporary reprieve from worrying about all those next-door boys .

We have spent a fortune in movie tickets watching 'Wake Up Sid' 4 times, and 'Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani' twice.

We don't like Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif much in this house. In fact, we hate them.

rishi kapoor being close to you, is that a wonderful option? Even though he is rotund he can still scream, tumne kabhi kissi se pyar kiya hai?

bollyviewer said...

hahaha Looks like you will have to get used to seeing Neetu's face on a man!

Banno said...

Sur, I'd just be completely tongue-tied before both Rishi and Neetu. And if he screams at me, tumne kabhi kissi se pyaar kiya, I'll faint.

Bollyviewer, :)

Wonderful aspirations, all of them!
You can tell that person that I approve of her good taste:)

Banno, doesn't your daughter read your blog? Aren't you scared she will throw your comp in the ocean if she reads this?

My mom used to tell my grandfather when he disapproved of Govindas posters in our room: 'At least they will be safe from the galli ke chore.'

Banno said...

Dipali, hmmm!

Grasshopper, she jumped up and down with excitement when she read this. Just the thought of her love being declared from the rooftops. :)

perplexed said...

oh we in our house hate deepika and katrina exactly for the same reasons too! :)

Amrita said...

Ahahahaha, if Neetu Kapoor was my samdhan, I'd set fire to my entire wardrobe because really, what is the point?

R. Kapoor said...

:)

Katz said...

Pratz said...

lolz

susie said...

Ha ha...
I have very similar feelings and fantasies for Abhay Deol...and am nearly twice her age...

memsaab said...

Please invite me to the wedding! Shammi might be there ;-D

Banno said...

Perplexed, :)

Amrita, now that never occurred to me.

Is that really you, R. Kapoor? :) And Katz? :(
Or is it Pratz? :))

Suzie, why not, why not? What has age got to do with it?

Memsaab, god, I never thought of that. More fainting.

Hope Ranbir Kapoor reads this post.

Banno said...

Abhishek, That's exactly what Dhanno wants too.

eve's lungs said...

LOL look at this = its a repetition of the scenario in our house ! laughing at Neetu Kappor as a samdhan !

ajnabi said...

I'm sure Neetu will make an excellent saasu-ma after the first grandchild. Now, speaking as a mother to two daughters myself, *there's* a thought that could keep you up at night. ;-)

Pitu said...

ROFL! Someone has excellent taste ;-) And ok Neetu may be a high maintainence samdhan but surely Chintu would be an adowable samdhi? You could even flirt with him a la Alok Nath-Reema Lagoo in HAHK :D Abhi se gaana shuru karo: Aaj hamare dil mein ajab si uljhan hai, gane baithe gana, samne samdhi hai teehee

Banno said...

Eve's Lungs, Ajnabi, yes, sleepless nights.

Pitu, thanks for the song recommendation. Though I could play Scrabble with him, no, instead of singing or dancing? Atleast, there I could hope to match up with his one new word a day skills.
