Oh, I know I shouldn't. I know they are likely pirates. I know!

But I cannot help it!

I really want a copy of Salaam e Ishq of my own, as soon as I can. Of course, I will buy a legit DVD when it comes out (did with Veer-Zaara after all) but must have stopgap. Especially when it's 2-in-1 with Guru.

I cannot help it.

Argh.

In good news though, I am giddy to find out that Amitabh is playing Khaderbhai!!!!!!!! In Shantaram!!!! With Johnny Depp!!!!! Not only will this mean I'll see Amitabh on my regular cinema screen, but he is exactly who I pictured as Khaderbhai. I remember indulging in fantasy casting for this. OMG!

Now if they only cast John Abraham as Abdullah (he was the only other character I really just pictured, from the get go), I will be in heaven.

But still, AMITABH!!!!!

If you haven't read Roberts' Shantaram, you should. My favorite book last year.

P.S. Apparently there is a Canadian movie out, called The Partition with Lana Lang playing the heroine. I read the review and it sounds like an inferior rip-off of Gadar. You know Bollywood made it when it's being ripped off as opposed to the other way around.

P.P.S. Oh Salman in my icon. Stop making me stare at you. Why can't a fantasy boyfriend kneel to me? Oh right, Mr. Mousie would be displeased :)

The author of the best book I'd read in ages, Shantaram (I am almost 600 pages in, and it's a rare book that gets better as you read), has a webcite. Go to http://www.shantaram.com/

The 'author facts' section is insane. Crazier than the novel. How many men can say that they escaped from maximum-security prison, established a free clinic for slum dwellers, worked for the Bombay mafia running guns into Afganistan and smuggling passports to Africa, and got a recording contract in Germany as a singer, all within a 10 year span?

Also, check out his images section. He is a Bollywood fan. And (if you check out character profiles section), a Shahrukh fan. Crazy!

Why is Pretear called Pretear? Are the characters in that stage right before crying? I want to have a show called "Prehiccups." I did not just purchase the freaking thing on ebay.

Is anyone else excited to have Veronica Mars back? Finally. I am beginning to forget what they look like. Logan is that short African American basketball player, right? The one who always hangs out with the lead, Victoria?

Also, I realized I like samurai anime. Recs? Because I still have over 50 eps of Kenshin to go *watches as massive defriending happens* but I need to plan ahead. I like hot men (even if animated) and fighting. Which makes it no different than my taste in live action. Is that so wrong? Fighting=angst. And violence.

Shantaram is being made into a movie. Except that they would have to condence 900+ pages into two hours. And the fact that I adore Johnny Depp but he is totally wrong. Russell Crowe I can see. Johnny Depp? Not so much. I adore the man but he looks like he'll keel over if you give him a surprise punch, as opposed to someone who escaped out of maximum security prison and feels justifiably confident he can take on a guy with a sword when he has nothing but fists. He played a mob guy in Blow but that was kinda peaceable drug dealing, not gun-running into Afganistan. Though I get to see him tortured, which is always yay (see above point about angst). Also, I am wondering who'd they cast as all the Indian characters, as most of them are Indian. Somehow I doubt Bollywood is about to be emptied of its actors. Though I can so see Rajpal Yadav as Prabakar. And Amitabh as Khader Khan. Add in John Abraham as Abdullah and we are set. But I doubt they'd do that, so what do we have? I know Naveen Andrews is the default Indian the way Ken Watanabe is the default Japanese (heck, default anything Asian) but he can't be cloned...

I should not post after having a huge cup of Starbucks coffee. Too much shaky finger motion. Not to mention scattered thoughts
