SRK – in love with a ghost 

Never thought I would be obsessing over a celebrity and that too at this stage of my life 😆 It’s been almost a decade since I’ve left teen, yet I find myself fixated over this man’s interviews and social media activities. Yup, I am talking about Shah Rukh Khan. Bit embarrassing I know, but it’s a fact I’m having a hard time admitting to it. 🙃

I keep telling myself, “You don’t know him personally, he could be anyone and very likely not the one you think he is. So how is he deserving of your time and attention? Yes, he could be a great human being or perhaps just a great actor who really knows his game. While he maybe just doing his job (mastering his field) you are putting him on a pedestal that he may or may not be deserving of. Giving this ghost a face – SRK’s face in this case. Know that, this image that you have created on your mind may or may not exist.”


I am not a movie person tbh, I get angsty having to sit in one place and watch one movie for continuous 2 to 3 hours. Rather, I’m more of documentary kinda person. Biopic and interviews work best in my interest, but movies. So while I was going through some interviews on leadership I came across his speech at Dhirubhai Ambani International School and there was no stopping since then. By now I’ve probably watched all of his interviews on YouTube, latest being the TED talk on humanity, fame, and love. I can’t seem to get enough of him. It’s sheer pleasure just to watch him woo me 😊 Thus, now in a process of completing watching all his movies… damn I sound so scary 😳 You might think I’m insane, but trust me when I say I’m a lot crazier that you think I am 😉

Idolizing and romanticizing as a child – that can be explainable, but as an adult – that’s questionable, I would at least. I think it’s nonsense to idolize anyone coz I personally am cynical about the idea of a living legend. It could be because of my own experiences growing up. For an instance, who I thought they (as in adults) were and how I was revealed to the fact who they really are while I was growing up was a life changing yet hilarious experience.

I realize I could be in trouble for saying so but it’s my belief that I think there are no mahatmas, gurus or whatever we call them. I personally think, what/who we idolize is simply: a glorification, a sugarcoated fact. All these larger than life characters has been created as an escape from one’s own reality. They are either who we cannot be or cannot find. This is true and very true in my case. Fiction I believe is an exaggerated form of reality that has transcended into a vision and image where even the sky is not the limit, coz one can make of it whatever they want it to be. I’m aware of this delusion yet I find myself obsessing over SRK (more so now than ever). 


This man who seems to tick all the boxes of ‘Mr. Right’ has a face of a man who is my father’s age, is a married man from India and has 3 kids. But wait! This makes it safe to love him and admit it openly – doesn’t it? 😉 So allow me 🙂 My justification for why I think he is ‘Mr. Perfect’ although his real self may or may not be.

I know, not all would agree and that’s perfectly ok. One can hate him or love him but can’t deny his accomplishment. He could be cunning to many, but his charm is undeniably infectious to millions. He who is a self-made man who has been consistently treading his path in his favor. He does it effortlessly because he is grounded, honest and keeps it very simple. 

It’s through his hard work, intelligence and diligence he is who he is today. He who has been reigning for almost 3 decades now and still counting. Do note, a miracle happens once or maybe twice. What’s consistent is real. He has been dubbed as the 2nd richest actor in the world yet possesses a childlike curiosity. He who isn’t perfect yet so godly. His life journey is fascinating to a sociologist, inspiring to any layman, intriguing to an entrepreneur and spellbinding to a dreamer.

He who wears his wit like the amulet. An intellectual man yet so humble. Most celebrated celebrity yet so down to earth. His words spill wisdom and speech floats like a poetry.  He’s well informed, which makes him rational; yet he has the courage to dare dream which makes him a dreamer. He who knows commerce and values philosophy. He who believes in the religion of humanity and oneness.

Like most, of my writing and my own personality, this blog post too, is self-contradictory. Do I owe anyone an explanation? You ain’t getting any 😛 Save your effort and don’t try to take my words in a literal sense and least, try finding logic. This blog post isn’t intended to serve anything but confess a dilemma. I don’t know if I’m complaining SRK’s non-existence or complimenting the probability of his being.

Either he is who he is or he is an excellent PR to successfully portray the image he has built and sustained it for so long. Speaking of which, sure people can be pretentious but the question is – for how long? In his case, his aura, those vibes, energy, and warmth with which he and his admirers reciprocate, all over the world speaks for itself. He is the real deal and truly blessed. 

This man seems to be a life savior and a killer (both at the same time). The man who respects women, married the first girl he dated and his universe revolves around his kids and family. He seems to be a mama’s boy, mad lover, faithful husband, sensitive yet a fighter, with the right balance of masculinity and femininity. Combination of an intelligent man with a strength and courage can never go wrong. No wonder, Bhahubali is doing so well. 

SRK is the face for all those who are trying to give a shape to their imagery ‘Mr Right.’ Characters he portrays is what every girl looks in their partner and mother sees in their son. He radiates faith to those who believes in true love, match made in heaven and everything unworldly. 

He is an ordinary man who has achieved an extraordinary triumph. He is relatable and an epitome of what a real modern man should be. His eyes (the way it glistens) makes you want to believe that he is the one for you; you look into his eyes and u go like “this is the man who can die for me, kill for me, live for me and love me like no other”; although it’s a different story that it’s not true – the make believe does its magic. 

He is an easy escape for those million dreamers who’s reality isn’t what one wants to acknowledge. He brings hope to a common man to believe that they too can reach their highest destiny and fulfill their life purpose (whatever that maybe). 

Onscreen he spellbinds his audience with his magic wand and offscreen his real life journey, love and success story is no different to work its mojo. Now, how can this man not be loved? Admired so much so that he unintendedly invites haters too. He definitely is a rare breed, quite a catch! They don’t make such man anymore. He has all those qualities that matter, but he isn’t perfect and that’s the key. His imperfection is what makes him perfect.

Happy dreaming – $hri§T

Movie “He’s Just Not That Into You”

Fun Stuff Frm The Movie“He’s Just Not That Into You”.The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys”

B4 u begin reading :

N:B – Gigi repeatedly misreads mundane actions and comments from her dates as indications they are romantically interested in her and Alex reveals the strategies guys use to avoid a girl.

Gigi:This guy hasn’t call me. Maybe his grandma died or maybe he lost my number or is out of town or got hit by a cab………….
Alex: Or maybe he is not interested in seeing you again.

Gigi: Hey sorry to bug you again! Uh quick question.I’m making out with this guy, but he mentions he’s going out of town so he’s gonna be out of touch.
Alex: Run.
Gigi:But maybe he is going out of town.
Alex:To where? New Guinea? Where’s he gonna be that he’s gonna be out of touch?
Gigi: No!To Pittsburgh
Alex: Run!

Alex:Trust me when I say if a guy is treating you like he doesn’t give a shit, he genuinely doesn’t give a shit. No exceptions. If a guy doesn’t call you, he doesn’t want to call you.

Alex:If a guy gives you his phone number instead of taking yours, he’s not interested.

Alex: Guys invented the spark so they could not call, and treat you kinda bad, and keep you guessing…and they convince you that, that anxiety and that fear that just develops naturally is actually just a spark. And you guys all buy it; you eat it up, and you love it. You love it because you feed off that, that drama. You all love that drama.

Alex: I really gotta go to bed.
Gigi: Is that an invitation?
Alex: What?
Gigi: Oh god, That was cheesy.

Gigi: [She pulls back and holds his face.] Oh, yes, I knew it! The best relationships grow out of friendship. [She kisses him .]
Alex: Wait, wait, wait. Gigi, wait, wait, wait. [He pushes her back.] Now you and I are in a relationship? (He’s entirely freaked out.) And why exactly would you think that?
Gigi: Because of the signs…
Alex: Really? Like what?!
Gigi: Like it was good to hear from me, and you talked to me even when you were with a girl and…I…felt…something.
Alex: Oh, man. [He gets up.] ? If a guy wants to date you, he will make it happen, okay? He will ask you out. Did I ask you out?
Gigi: No.
Alex: Then, why…why would you do this? [He’s upset and rubs his head.]Why do women do this? Why do they build this stuff up in their minds, take each little thing a guy does and, and, and then twist it into something else…? It’s insane! [He walks away.] (THIS IS MY FAV PART)!!

Gigi: A wise person once told me that if a guy wants to be with a girl, he will make it happen, no matter what.
Alex:That’s true!

Gigi: I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. Oh! You’ve think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don’t fall in love that way either. You have not won. You’re alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I’m still a lot closer to love than you are.

Gigi: Look, I just went out with your friend Bill. He might be just exactly what I need. No drama, he calls; he does what he says…

Alex: [stepping closer] I can do that stuff too…

Gigi: But you didn’t! And that same wise person told me that I’m the rule. That I have to stop thinking that every guy will change, that I have to stop thinking that…

Gigi: [Alex kisses her]

[smiles]

Gigi: … I’m the exception…

Alex: [whispers] You are *my* exception.

Maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe… it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is… just… moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.Sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs.

Never wait for a man to call you, or call you back. Get on with what makes your life exciting. Throw yourself into a career .Don’t sit like a taxi with your meter running waiting for a man to call you.

Every man you have ever dated who has said he doesn’t want to get married or doesn’t believe in marriage, or has “issues” with marriage, will … rest assured … someday be married. It just will never be with you.

Every minute you sit at home waiting for Mr. Indifferent to call you loses you the opportunity at finding a man that is totally into you and will make you feel like the amazing woman that you are.

You want a man with character, not a man who is a character.

Know Shrek Profoundly

Shrek shits on the traditional fairytale. Shrek lampoons and parodies Disney. We can see a healthy rivalry between DreamWorks and Disney. In Shrek the prince isn’t charming; the princess isn’t the classical sleeping beauty. It contains many deeper moral messages.

Shrek is the most heroic and human character in the movie. He is an ugly ogre, but he is not evil – he’s misunderstood. “Don’t judge a book by its cover”

Shrek makes a comment to Fiona after she burps, ?you aren’t exactly what I expected,? and she replies, ?maybe you shouldn’t judge people before you get to know them.? This is clearly a moral statement, and it carries on through out the whole film.

Princess fiona, when she finally discovers her true love, she ends up turning permanently into an ogre. She is still in her eyes an ugly ogre, yet Shrek says ?but you are beautiful.? This is similar to judging people simply by the color of their skin, their ethnic heritage and their religion. The first and most oblivious moral of this movie is that beauty is on the inside.

Princess fiona has some secret, and she is terrified that people are going to discover it. We too sometimes hide our real selves for fear of rejection or censure. But if we don’t dare to reveal our true selves, then how will people come to see and understand the real ?us? beneath the surface and appreciate us for who we really are. Like Andre Gide has quoted ?It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not?.

Lord Farquaad, who is a peewee in this movie, gathers up all the fairy tale creatures and ousts them from his kingdom. This is for his kingdom to look better, for him to rule over the perfect race. This is what Hitler did in the War II by killing Jews, Gypsies, people with disabilities, and anyone else who did not look like a perfect aron.

In Shrek Forever After, the green monster is bored with being a baby daddy and husband. To spice up his life, he cuts a deal with Rumpelstiltskin to go back to being free and single, but winds up losing the love of his life and realizes that with a hard lesson. Sometimes we too are just tired of the people that love us the most .You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.

Rumpelstiltskin stand for all the wickedness and deception that are unmasked of their pretensions to goodness and truth. Not everything that sparkles is a diamond.

Not necessarily have to be perfect but ends “Happily Ever After”!!!

Remember Me

Movie-“Remember Me” Taught Me To Live in Present and to live it to the fullest.

Life is Insignificant as Gandhi said but each living being has a role to fulfill and that is what makes this life significant. We can’t play god ,so we better be human and dance as god pleases bcoz ultimately god has a plan for each one of us.

Our every meeting with every person has a purpose. Our every experience contribute to who we are meant to be. Everything happens for a reason, we just don’t see it right now but someday we will get an answer for all injustice that we’ve endured and all our unsolved queries will be solved. We just need to wait patiently till that right time comes.
