Bollywood actress Renuka Shahane was recently in the news for commenting on Salman Khan’s acquittal case. At latest, she posted a hilarious interview of her with a leading newspaper journalist which will surely tickle your funny bones.
Here is how the interview started on a Phone Call:
A “journalist” called on behalf of a well-known daily, I’ll call him J for short.
J: Ma’am we would like to ‘do’ your interview for a column about veteran tv actors.
J: So apart from Surabhi which I remember you’ve done Swabhimaan right?
Me: Many serials but not Swabhimaan
J: Oh no no it was Shanti right? It was very popular….
Me: It sure was but I wasn’t in it?
J (sounding utterly gobsmacked): Er….then what were you in? Please tell me names of your serials?
Me: Why didn’t you do your homework?
J: Please ma’am help me now…I will do it from next time….only a few questions
J: What is the difference between the serials you did & the serials today?
Me: Serials I acted in were weeklies.
Me ( patiently): We have daily soaps now…they are called dailies because they are shown daily. My Serials were called Weeklies because they were shown once a week
J: Oh so only once a week? You mean one story for one week?
Me: No….how do I explain this? You have daily newspapers, weekly magazines, fortnightly ones & monthly ones…..some are printed quarterly? Right?
J: Oh so you had a lot of variety like Weeklies & Fortnightly
Me: No no….I mean we had variety….but I was just drawing an analogy so that you could relate it to your work
Me: Are you there?
J: Yes ma’am….I thought you were drawing something so I waited
Me: Hmmmm are you writing anything down at all?
J: Ma’am I’ve got an excellent memory…..you’ve acted in Surabhi….and you’ve acted in Shanti which was a weekly & you acted in a variety of Fortnightly & quarterly Serials too ma’am
Me (trying to hold back the mirth): You’re amazing….you’ve got it spot on….now may I please go back to er….drawing analogies
J: Sure ma’am….if you what’s app me the photo of the drawing of the “allergy” I can include it as your hobby….it’s a very unique concept.
Sigh….some journalists are a source of great entertainment…..the upside is that I’ve bought myself a canvas….still not been able to draw my “allergy” though.
After reading the whole interview it is clear that you must have laughed seriously. Overall, it is truly hilarious.
