For the next few weeks nobody in Chennai should have a problem starting a conversation with anyone. Anybody can talk to you abt the movie Shivaji, its storyline, its heroine, the commedy track, the costumes and ofcourse whether the Superstar has lived upto his expectations. Such is the popularity of this guy. Though i think lately his movies are devoid of logic, i wld love to watch the movie asap. Jus to watch it on the big screen and enjoy the crowd's loud comments.

Incidentally i was watching this Nagesh Kukunoor movie- "Bollywood Calling" yesterday. The movie is a sarcastic take on Bollywood movies and the Indian Movie goers expectations. One of the characters in the movie is Manu Sharma [some body like Rajinkanth probably] who has mass popularity despite his being 60 years of age. The heroine explains to the hero [who is a Hollywood actor] about how Manu can dance around the trees with 20 year old girls and the public loving it.

But the same public cant understand how a 64 year old Bachchan can fall in love with a 34 year old Tabu in Cheeni Kum. This is infact a more logical story and probably there are few people who can relate to it. But logic is not appreciated here.

Which brings me to this question- Why cant people accept their age gracefully? There are so many movies that could accomodate an older hero. Claimin that the public wont accept you as an old man is BS.

Anyway i cant wait to watch Shivaji ;-)
