And here’s what everyone else said that I couldn’t fit into the column (there’s a word limit you know!) of course now that the strike is finally over there’s going to be a resurgence of celebrity spotting at the cinema keep your eyes open (I’ll keep my Twitter-cam handy.)

Yudhistir Urs:
“I hope the kiss and make up because this lovers quarrel is causing a lot of people much heartache. Now that there is little to do I am trying to astrally project myself into a theatre in a galaxy far away to catch the latest Hollywood action!”

Riyaaz Amlani: “Watching grass growing outside the theatres! Right now I am going nuts watching DVDs of old TV series Carl Sagan’s Cosmos and Mash.”

Shehnaz Treasurywala: “Shooting for my own film round the clock but I love my DVDs which I watch on my laptop in my van, miss going to the theatre to watch films though no DVD can beat that.”

Cyrus Sahukar: “I miss movies. I am currently getting back to writing my self help book called ‘how to start worrying and start freaking out’ its going to be a bestseller my roommate in the cell loves it.”

Bandana Tewari: “I’m handling the strike by happily watching reruns of The West Wing.”

Ash Chandler: “Hasn’t really affected me, planning to catch Angles and Demons and Star Trek in Goa!”

Fahad Samar: “Watched 99 and Angels and Demons in the theatres and have had a rollicking time watching the entire Almodovar collection on the home projection screen – the man is such a twisted genius!”

Pritish Nandy: “I’m watching movies in London was here for a week, already seen 6 movies and I have still two evenings to go!”
