Attack of the Sandman.   

You know... I suspect the Sandman's got a thing for me. Totally overslept today. So I’m rushing… late to shoot! I so hate reaching late to work, the guilt factor just messes up my entire day.

So yesterday I actually managed to sleep for an hour. Then Prasoon (lyricist) dropped in and I couldn’t get back to the blog. We were together all day and then we drove back together after pack up and he came home for dinner. So…

Can you guys believe I actually missed the Federer-Roddick match?! And I believe it was amazing. But not as amazing as the match I played that day!!! Gosh I never thought I’d miss the Wimbledon final and still be happy. But I had such a good time that evening. It was the finals of a badminton tournament in Bombay and Prakash Padukone whom I am a big fan of had invited me to play an exhibition match. It’s a game that I love and I was so happy to get the chance to play with world class players. And what a great time I had!!! Super fun. I wish y’all could see the game. Maybe I should try and post it on…

Ok sorry got to rush. Have just reached the shoot. I continue later.



So as I was saying maybe I should try and post it on youtube or something. I think its also coming on Ten Sports one of these days. Will check and update.

But I did miss a very exciting match in the Federer-Roddick game, so maybe I should try and get a recording. Very very honestly while I am a big Federer fan I quite like Roddick as well. So in this particular case I was a bit divided on who I was rooting for. Was feeling a little bad for Roddick when I heard it had been so close.

Saina Nehwal is the one to watch out for, have been following her progress over the past couple years. I think she is headed to becoming the world number 1 very soon.



Ok, I've just been called for another shot. back later.



Ok just got the info in the badminton telecast dates and times. The game will be shown on Ten Sports on 16th July at 9:30pm, on 18th July at 8:00am and on 26th July at 2:30pm. Thanks Abhishek for the info.



So so sleepy again.

If you have not yet purchased RDB, I recommend getting the
special edition. It is worth every penny. You get deleted scenes
and a very interesting director's commentary in it...

Really?! Tintin and Asterix?

They are everywhere here in France. My local bookstore sells lots
of "Ghajini type" collectible statues of those comic book

No spinning Ghajini dollies here yet though. Maybe someday. :-)
Or maybe even better, may we see the real guy taking my little
island by storm instead of the statue... No harm in daydreaming.

Fiji looks so fun and colourful through your camera lens... :-)

Hi Aamir, I admire you since you're one of the rare actors true
to the art. I am sad to see how most big stars (including
politicians like Shashi Tharoor) are happily twittering away but
no one gives a thought to tens of millions in India who do not
have regular access to internet. Most of your fans have a mobile
phone though. I suggest you be different as always and try
SMSGupShup instead. I hear they have 20 Million users, much
bigger than Orkut/Facebook/Twitter. You can send SMSes to
thousands of fans free of cost. Imagine the smiles on the faces
of your fans when they get an sms from you! :)

3 Idiots to release on December 25 this year:

Reportedly, in an exclusive statement to Spicezee Aamir has
stated that all such reports (about the release being delayed)
are false and the film keeping in line with his last two
superhits ‘Ghajini’ and ‘Taare Zameen Par’ will hit theatres on
December 25.

Yes put it rest to this discussion as nothing can come out of
it.Every one has a different obligation to his or her sprite.

Yes, we should move on and consider the focus of this blog. A
little bit of discussion is fine but perhaps it was getting
carried away.

Katayoun – I viewed each of your photos. You should be proud.
Wonderful color and you have captured the essence of life. What
more can you ask for. My compliments!!!!!!!

Aline – Unfortunately, I don’t yet have a DVD of Rang de Basanti.
I have three new DVD’s coming Friday; however, Rang De Basanti
will be added later.

Eles – If Aamir has the time and will offer me contact
information I will meet him even if I have to go to Mumbai for a
few days while in India. It would be a chance of a lifetime to
meet him but if he doesn’t have time I hope he will send me an
address where I can at least mail my photo books to him. I would
like very much to show him my appreciation through my talent.

Kristine – Thanks for the lovely comments about my photographs.
Nice of you.

I am a HUGE fan of Tintin! I collect posters and lithographs of
Tintin and the rooms of my little ones are adorned with his
posters (Asterix too).

Tintin and Destination Moon was remarkable in that it came some
18 years before the actual moon landing!

I even have the replica moon rocket from the comic dangling on
the rear view mirror of my car window!

That's "write up" not "right up"!

I kind of agree with Pushker and Eles that the discussion has
more or less taken a less than agreeable turn now.

On the issue of rape, I only wish to contribute a link to a
project that anyone interested may consult independently.

"I Never Ask For It" blog:

How did you like Aamir singing "Aati kya Khandala"? The guy has
got attitude, right?

I can see the blog is once again becoming the preaching ground of
a particular religion (I am partly to blame for it too)

We've had Christianity, Islam........ any Narendra Modi's or Bal
Thakarey's out here on the blog to start waxing eloquent about
the virtues and belief's of Hinduism?

How about a Neo Nazi?
