Friday Night Full Tight*

*Friday Night Full Tight loosely translates to “got wrecked” in America speak.

Friday night turned out to be quite an epic evening (by which I mean we eventually ended up at Bling.) Starting off with an entertaining stand up act called “Around the World in 80 minutes” by Jonathan Atherton who does a fair amount of cultural mimickery amid his mostly self-effacing humor. (I find Mumbai laughs loud and easily at most stand up comics. We’re good like that.) The only slightly uncomfortable silence during the show was when he (rather seriously) mentioned that abused women make better lovers. Followed by no punchline. Er… Spotted Lara Dutta, Rajat Kapoor, Anubhav Pal and Rahul Da Cunha all in for the gig as well.

After the show we all headed over to Zenzi for drinks where I ran into a very pretty Juhi Pande and an equally friendly Abhay Deol. It’s impossible to dislike anyone with dimples I feel. He was really sweet about posing for these pictures and (as is my fate) must have assumed I was a fan. I kinda am now.

So we ended up going from Zenzi to Shiro to Oba to Polly to Bling (where after they shut for the general public I think they reopened for Sohail Khan and crew.) Luckily this time we made it home before dawn and woke up the next afternoon and went straight to Salt Water Cafe for lunch. Yum. As we were leaving we spotted this heavily guarded ride. Wonder who’s it is. Anyone?

missmalini version 2.0ye!

So here’s the plan! I’m working on a full-scale upgrade of my blog (with lots of help from some very generous friends!) Props to Preshit, Aspi, Karan and Nowshad! This involves a little transfer time and tweaking so if I’m MIA now and again you better believe I’ll be back.

Oh btw I saw 17 Again tonight. Cute movie and OMG how cute is this boy?!

Zac Efron

Zac Efron

Didjya Know?

Birth Name: Zachary David Alexander Efron Nicknames: Zacquisha , Hollywood & Zefron

Birthdate: 18 october 1987 (yup, he’s 21!)

Pets: Two Australian Shepherds, Dreamer and Puppy, and Siamese cat, Simon

With the popularity of High School Musical (2006) he had to change his phone number after getting numerous calls from fans.

Zac’s most prized possession is his autographed baseball collection.

Met his current girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, during castings for High School Musical (2006) (TV). They were paired together near the end of casting to see how well they worked together.

Simon Cowell offered him a record deal but he turned it down saying, “…acting is my main priority.”

His acting idol is Johnny Depp. Is a fan of Flight of the Conchords. His favorite movie is The Goonies, 1985 (Love it!)

Was ranked #15 on Moviefone’s ‘The 25 Hottest Actors Under 25′(2008).

Personal Quotes

“If I had to hear the High School Musical (2006) (TV) songs anymore, I would have jumped off of something really tall.” [On why he chose not to do the High School Musical Tour.]

“You know what, I do not want to fall victim to partying too hard, it’s too easy and too often done. It’s out of style anyway, I think too many people have done it before me, I’m not going to. It’s uncool, yeah. I think the rebellious thing to do would to actually be successful.”

“On why he chose 17 Again: Everything else that was around was either a musical or a high school romance, you know, and this was actually the biggest risk and the biggest challenge. I can relate to playing a kid – I’ve had a first kiss, I’ve had awkward dates, I’ve had fights with my parents… But one thing I’ve never done is gotten into a fight with my teenage daughter.”

“I’m definitely not getting married. In this business, you’re either getting married or they want you to be pregnant. I’m not getting married until I’m forty. If ever.” (uh oh, sorry Vanessa, I thought he was a keeper.)

Zac Efron. He’s yummy. (Zac is such a cute boy name isn’t it?) There’s a Zac in my eldest nephew Andre’s class, he’s six and he’s going to be a total babe magnet, so is my nephew btw, luckily he doesn’t know it… yet.
P.S. His little brother (and nephew # 3 for me) Michel has a way with the ladies as well, as you can see.

Um…in case you noticed, yup; me and my sis have rhyming names. I know, don’t ask. I’ll save that for another rant!

Mosquers: virtual red carpet.


Didjya hear about this? A short film released on Youtube just bagged the 2009 Mosquers Best Comedy Award. (The Mosquers were created two years ago to celebrate Muslim film-makers and give voice to contemporary Muslim life in Edmonton.)

Nelson Spooner Production presents “Samir’s 30 Days” – a Fahad Shaikh & Shawn Kanungo film.

Synopsis: Samir, a typical directionless brown guy, has lived through 27 years of bad luck with girls. However, his parents have had enough of his apathetic existence, and tell him that if he doesn’t find a girl in thirty days, they will get his marriage arranged. With the help of friends, Samir gets a crash course in girls and discovers why hes struggled his whole life.

So I have to say this isn’t the best comic timing I’ve come across (more like a mash up of, “Something About Mary” and Beauty & the Geek) but valiant effort none-the-less, and it looks like they had fun make it. (I’m also hoping this means poor Samir finally got laid!)

P.S. Thank you Marcot Patel Chung for the tip off!

Everybody on the dance floor.

djTimes Music is launching DJ Praveen’s new album “burn d’ dance floor” tonight (no really, that’s how they’re spelling it on the CD too) and Lucky Ali is expected to do the honors. Their (mostly wish-list) guest list reads something like this; Farah Khan, Amrita Rao, Adhyan Suman, Vishal Dadlani, Anjana Sukhani, Mona Singh, Mandira Bedi, Suresh Wadkar, Aditya Narayan, Nilesh Rane & Nitesh Rane (sons of Narayan Rane) singing stars from all the singing reality shows including Abhijeet Sawant, Prajakta Shukre, Rehan Khan, Debojeet Saha, Himani Kapoor, Meenal Jain, Toshi Sabri, Mauli Dave, Arun Shesh Kumar and Cyrus Sahukar will be hosting the event at Enigma, JW Mariotte Mumbai.

(I’ll post pictures of the actual turn out tomorrow!)

P.S. When I texted Vishal Dadlani to ask if he’s planning to attend DJ Praveen’s album launch he replied, “Who??”
