Have you ever imagined your life to be bollywood movie? You know like you sit in a café and suddenly you look into his eyes and your hands start moving towards the sky, your bangles showing up as you move your hands upwards in different mudras (handsigns). You give your loved one a sexy wink and you move your hips and suddenly both of you are in a mountain range in Switzerland dancing with different costumes in colour-coordinated style.
The words of an Urdu song come out of your mouth and your voice is a few pitches higher. The advantage of being in a movie is that you are also very slim and wear full make up and have perfect hair when you just get out of bed.
Your family and close friends magically appear when you need them and the special one is on your side in the critical moments of your life.
It sounds funny and unrealistic but often I think when we start the day with a bollywood mindset, listen to the music on the way to work and keep that smile when we think of our prince…that we get more positive responses from our surroundings.
Let’s try to have a bollywood day and please share your experience.
Uncle Ganesh is a friend of the family. He is becoming an important friend for my mother and Lara in the first part of “Double Happiness”. Ganesh is running a tour through India (Jaipur is one of the stops) where my mother Vivi and Lara meet. He is married and has a little daughter. He lives in Delhi and his sister Gitanjali wants to get married too. Ganesh is an open person who deals with a lot of different people. He is an extrovert and becomes a successful business man later in his life.
The Raja of Alipura is Raj’s father and by birth he is a real Raja. He is powerful because he also has made it big in Indian politics. In the first part of “Double Happiness” we do not know too much about the Raja. I do not want to spoil the surprise but let me tell you that he is a very strict father and has high expectations of his son. Mainly, like most ambitious men, he wants his son to follow in his foot steps.
If the Raja would be played by a bollywood actor I’d vote for Amitabh Bachchan, one of my all-time fav’s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VBlp-jaHGE
