Guess who I saw today

Posted on

When I had come to Mumbai as a kid with parents I was most excited about seeing a shooting. My masa (mom’s sister’s husband) took us to Film City where the guards would not let us enter. After a loooooooot of cajoling and persuading by masa they gave in (he is one of those people who never gives up). Unfortunately the only serial being shot then was ‘Chandrakanta’ (anyone remember it?). But I didn’t mind… Then I saw this guy who comes in serials… he was not a very known face but I recognized him- Sooraj Thapar. He was the only celebrity (if I can call him that) we came across on the trip… umm, no… no… there was another guy- Mehmood’s son. His first movie was about to release and the promos were everywhere. We spotted him in a cab.

Anyway, the reason I remembered this is…. I was in Andheri Lokhandwala today… Big Bazar at Mega Mall, to be specific. I came across Sooraj today shopping for groceries. Strange!!! Life comes a full circle.
For those who have never heard of him… here is a pic. I love google… it took me 5 mins to find him without being sure of the name.
