Last few days Iíve been watching on the news all about the 40th anniversary of the moon landing. Such an exciting thought. To actually get into a rocket, shoot off into space, watch the earth receding, and the moon getting closer, and then actually land on it and walk about. Wow.
But did it actually happen or was it all a hoax? Trick photography and creative filming, or real footage and photographs?
Have heard so much about the conspiracy theory that surrounds the moon landing. So I decided to do a basic search on youtube to see if there is anything posted there. Of course there is, both for and against. While going through some clips I ran into this most interesting documentary. Its called ĎMoon Landing A Fake or Fact?í, at least that what you need to type. Try and watch it, its in 9 or 10 parts. Then I want you guys to tell me what you think, did it actually happen or was it the biggest con of the century?
I see there has been quite a discussion on what I wore to my event with Secretary Clinton. Actually I didnít think much about it. I donít usually give much importance what I am wearing, so Iíll stay away from that discussion. But what I would like to say is that it was a real pleasure to meet with her. I found Sec Clinton to be an extremely warm and charming person. And she has such sharp and clear thinking, and expresses herself so well. Quite a privilege to meet with her.
And yes the cat is finally out of the bag. I am playing one of the leads in Kiranís film Dhobi Ghat. The reason we kept this under wraps is that she didnít want to attract much attention towards her film. She wanted to make this film on real locations with a tiny crew, very guerilla style. So we had to do it very quietly. And for once we managed to keep a secret from the media, at least until we finished the shoot. Actually I think I spoke about it in an interview right after we finished the shoot, so I'm surprised people are reacting now.
And lastly, principal photography on 3 Idiots is complete! We have one song left which Raju wants to shoot in Sept. Yesterday he began work on the post in full swing. Good God I'm getting butterflies in my stomach already. But this time I will NOT smoke. No matter how nervous I get.
