How We (Heart) Bollywood

Following was the email I sent out to ALL my friends here:

Hey people,
Salaam-E-Ishq, starring like everyone minus SRK, and directed by director of Kal Ho Na Ho, is releasing on Jan 26 (FRI). Do you guys want to go on that weekend? I don't know about you guys but haven't seen that type of mushy film in a while. Show times will be around 8 and 11 pm at Albion/Woodside.

Following was one reply I got from one of my friends:

I am in Bangladesh now, but my flight lands in Toronto at 8 pm on 26th...if some kind soul out there is willing to pick me up at the aiport then I am up for it (11 pm).

That's hilarious! :-)
He truly (Heart)s Bollywood.

So is there a kind soul that will pick him up? Or will the kind soul say he needs his rest?

Bollywood is getting much ahead in the film industry .. it's finally getting exposure in Hollywood .. people now seem to know what is Bollywood ..

How was your Bangladesh trip .. which city do you go to .. Dhaka ?

Farah: I hope so! He might just be fishing for someone to pick him up from the airport.

sf: Join the club. When I land after a trip it takes 2 hours to just straighten the legs eh! They were cooped up in that fetal position on the plane journey for God knows how long!

Khonika: Or maybe because Vidya Balan is one of the stars in the movie. Along with Priyanka Chopra, Isha Koppikar and Juhi Chawla.

Mousehunter: That remains to be decided. Depends on the number of DVDs being brought back from Bangladesh.

Nabeel: Ya it sure is. The Guru premier is in Toronto today and it's being covered by the media like madness. Stephen Colbert had Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh on his show yesterday.

I didn't go to Bangladesh. Too much trouble going on there now.

I heard about The Guru being premeired in Toronto on CBC Radio yesterday, and Aishwarya Rai and Abishik Bachan are in town. Also said that tickets were being sold for around $500.

Mousehunter, Isheeta:

My friend snapped the pictures at the gala. If he gives them to me I will post those.
