Sachin the great.   

Last night I watched the IPL final and what an exciting match it was. I don’t think we could have asked for a better finale to a most entertaining tournament. Rajasthan after beginning as the least likely to win at the start of the tournament went on to win the cup. My congratulations to the Rajasthan team and supporters. Chennai, hard luck but very well fought. Mumbai Indians is the team I’m supporting for obvious reasons, and I was disappointed that we weren’t in the finals, but next time. In fact I think all teams gave it their best but there can only be one winner, and jo jeeta wohi sikander. My guess is that in a very short time we should have the best side on an international level, what with all the young talent being thrown up.

The match last night was certainly exciting but what made it a unique experience for me was that I had Sachin next to me. You will find this hard to believe but Sachin was able to predict every ball before it was bowled. “He is going to bowl a bouncer next”,
“This one is going to be a slower one”, “Full tilt outside the off stump”, “Next one will be a yorker”, “Short of length”. It was uncanny. HE GOT IT RIGHT EACH TIME!!! No wonder its so difficult to bowl to him. He has an amazing instinct. And he told me his logic for each prediction which I wont share with you as I don’t want to reveal how his mind works. But all of us were dumbfounded with his instinct and his acumen. So at the end of it I told him next time we watch a film together I’m going to tell him whats going to happen next!

My apologies for disappearing for a bit. My friend Paul Blackthorn was visiting Bombay and I spent the week with him reliving Lagaan. In fact we had a bit of a reunion for him and it was really great to meet everyone.

And my apologies for the delay in the DVD release of TZP. The final work is almost over. Any day now. But I assure you I have tried my very best to make the wait worth it. Very soon I will tell y’all the exact release date, which is any day now.

Yes Praveer, Mansoor is indeed a product of IIT Bombay, Cornell, and MIT, however I whip him at chess. So watch out.

Nat why would PF, Comfortably Numb remind you of us?

I see that some of you have remembered my son Junaid’s birthday. Thanks so much for your wishes. We just returned from a dinner to celebrate it. He is 15 already! How time

Incidentally, tomorrow I resume work on the action sequences of Ghajini. I think my hamstring has recovered, but I''''''''ll get to know tomorrpw. Wish me luck.

Yeah, but the word great dies nit describe Tendulkar fully!!!
He's by far the best batsman and the most humble person I've ever
He's like a God to me!
Don't you think that the predictions he made were just fabulous
and I hope when he see Ghajini with you, you might not give away
the secret (if any)
Hey Aamir, hats off to you!
You are one of the best actors in the world!

.. next time we watch a film together I’m going to tell him whats
going to happen next! ..much relished!!
Infact we do this sometimes.I rembr watching mummy at banglr with
riends and me predicting what happens next..
I have read some of your blogs on sports person (and people in
other fields). These are one who bring a difference to
creativity, glory to their nation, art, literature etc. I really
relish their work. As you pointed out, they might have to face
harsh criticism too. Their (your) job is very challenging,
requires lots of hardship, endurance and qualities in their
stream, catering to the social and public. Pubic loves them most
in their glorious days . And otherwise they are otherwise. For
e.g. Ganguly was at one time stormed by whole nation.That was
real pity.I am happy he had a good note retire.Like MangalPandey
did not hold you back neither created disfavourism among fans.One
should never abdandon whom they have loved relished and respect,
whatever situations be
