An exclusive preview of Himesh's new sequel

On the heels of his incisive scoop on Himesh's missing brain, Manish goes burlesque and creates a movie poster for Himesh's top secret sequel to the meghaheet Aap Kaa Suroor: The Real Love Story.

I think Aspi should have not posted this picture.Least expected.If you visit any other site you can read people humiliating the contestants ,the judges. Expressing one's opinion is different than humiliation. This one site was away from it. But not anymore.

Sania said...

See Aspi? The trolls! They have come..!

Dear Aspi
I have been a regular in your space and have always appreciated the way people here have been outrageously humorous yet decent in their posts and comments. Manish is a very creative person no doubt, I fully appreciate his efforts and creativity. I also appreciate his frustration at the nauseating antiques of HR at Saregamapa. In fact there are times when I feel like walking up to him and shutting his gaps firmly with a scotch tape and shoving up an umbrella up his you know what and opening it.
However in his recent burlesque avtar I think Manish has gone a little overboard. The tagline “where there are pigs there are Oinks and Oniks” is in real bad taste. I feel calling Aneek or Oink/Onik (as some love to call him) a pig is just an uncalled for gesture. I understand you are pissed off with HR, so am I, but for that why would you call an eighteen year old a pig?? Aneek has been a consistent performer at saregama ( the only one with no “bad day” so far) and has belted out some gems like In Dino, Bulla, Janey Kya Man, Apney ..just to name a few. VS the most respected and neutral judges of the competition heaped praise on him and most interestingly, even die hard Raja fans acknowledged this same Aneek’s talent when in a recent poll in rajahasan.com, Aneek won hands down as the only competitor whom raja fan would like to see in the finals with raja.
So what is it that Aneek has done to be called a pig and have a poster hinting him to the pink pig of HR making rounds all over the internet?? I wonder!! Does that make you laugh?? I wonder!! The best part is Aneek has benefited a zilch from the HR antics…I have never come across a person who has ever cast a vote for Aneek just because of the stupid love story. Have You?? But I have come across thousands who have stopped voting for him and ultimately started hating him just for HR. I find it really disappointing to find people of the caliber of Manish protesting against HR in the most HR like manner. Believe me, it has got nothing to do with Aneek as such, if somebody came up a similar poster with Raja, Amanat or any other contestant my reactions would have been the same.

There is a fine line between being funny and being gross and it is a tough job maintaining it.
Dear Manish, just take a seconds break and reflect. If you feel there is some merit in what I have said, then please make the necessary amends at the poster. We all go overboard once in a while but the trick lies in accepting it and rectifying. That is what that makes us more Human and less HR. The choice is absolutely yours
Best wishes (I have shared my real name and id just in case people feel like creating another poster or start a chain of hate mails)

And Aspi! I expected a wee bit discretion from you buddy!! yours forever fan Bong Hits The Bong

Aspi said...

Pigs do provoke extreme reactions, I have to agree.

Manish's call - this post is his space.

Sidekick said...

That was incredibly funny...! The truth is the person with the last laugh is HR, coz he’s laughing all the way to the bank. I think he’s a brilliant salesman, one that can sell snow to the Eskimos and he has his finger on the pulse of the janta like no one else right now. As for Aneek, it’s not his fault that he is in the HR camp. But he does seem (and appearances are all we can go by) to be playing along with HR's antics and that makes him an easy target. It doesn't take away from his phenomenal talent as a singer but it does make him the bull's eye for such jokes. For all we know, he'll soon be laughing all the way to the bank just like HR is .....in which case the joke will definitely be on us.

Anonymous said...

Calling some one a pig seems like a "Joke' to you??
Try telling such a joke to your girlfriend buddy!!

Sidekick said...

It is intended to be a joke --- albeit a somewhat cruel one. Clearly not everyone sees it that way so I wouldn't want to get into any protracted arguments on it.

Anonymous said...

Come on guys, this is all in jest.

No one is comparing Aneek to anyone. It is just making fun of HR's movie and the way he calls Onik.

I think its clever and funny.

Bad joke indeed..not funny either..:-( and no i am not a troll

Please remove the offending poster immediately. As member of the Pig Lovers' Society, I would like to register my strongest possible objection to such cute pigs being compared to either Mr. Himesh Reshammiya or Mr. Aneek Dhar. This is an insult to such a glorious species.

m said...

some people here need thicker skin
that was hilarious.. manish u r effin funny

Bong Hits the BOng said...

Point taken Megan!
In the absence of thicker skin I prefer not be here....Thank you manish, aspi and all the extremely funny people here, you have been successful in curing one of my addictions...
Bye

anu g said...

my, first time i see things heating up so much on this site....cmon guys cool it.....Hey India has won the t20 match, so lets forget all thats happened and look forward to lots of entertainment this weekend...cricket,ii2,voi,srgmp...lots to choose from....

anu g said...

Bong, I keep telling my kids to see the positive side of things and find the goodness in everyone....and my advice to you is the same......there may have been one article which has offended you, but there have been so many more which have entertained u....u have registered ur protest, and we accept ur views....but u dont have to take it so seriously......i hope u cool down, and return to enjoy the fun here.

Aspi said...

gin, no one is a troll for coming down here and voicing their disapproval. And neither are you. In fact, I deal with so many people who tend to go behind my back and say things that I am grateful for this directness.

Enough people find this funny that I don't feel like forcing the issue and removing the post. But I'll be happy to do it if most people think we crossed the line.

m said...

crossing the line is an artform tho
this could be a shock humor like borat or somethin
i donno
but hits from da bong dont go..

come on guys lets just love each other. lets get along and sing a song together

Aspi and Bong

Aspi said...

Ironically, I hated Borat!

But with Bhtb, we seemed to have touched something deep down in there. Aneek is my favorite but I wasn't remotely pissed that Manish was going after him :)

Bong Hits The Bong said...

Now Anu you really sound like my grand mom! and amazingly have the same soothing effect on me....I was just kidding dear, quitting drift is easy, just like quitting cigarette, I have done it so many times...

Anonymous said...

I have a better idea. Let the title in the poster remain. Instead of that cute pig picture how about Manish's picture? And also this marks the downfall of
Aspi's site.

anu g said...

I knew it. Talk about cricket and India winning a match, and theres unity and peace!

anu g said...

By the way,Bong ur "'Im queeting'to I'm back " was even shorter than Bappida's.

OMG
All's well that ends well.

ama Bong bhai!kya tobhi hai yaaron.Kabhie hau bolte kabhie nakko bolthe.kya ho ra?Pareshan karre tuma sab ko.(sorry sorry)

anu,u r awesome.U sure r one great mom I must say(grand mom too)lol

there r times when I chk the blog and think "Yahan itna Sannata kyun hai bhai" as in A.K.Hangal from Sholay but today,man,all talking,talking,talking

to pacify bhtb,I was chk'n the previous episodes of SRGMP where Bappida sings some bengali song'shirodama..ami..something something..."ha ha ha I guess I dont need that anymore

And bong,we r very glad that U realized the rishton ki ahsaas and rishton ki buniyaad and out of anon mode.Koool....

Aspi said...

All last week Bappi didn't sing something in that sweet voice of his. I'm looking forward to it this week. One of these days, I hope he sings the Gunmaster G-9 song.

Joules, there is no way to put sequence numbers on comments in Blogger although I know why you are asking - makes it easy to reference specific comments.

Bong hits the bong said...

Talking about Bhappi da singing the last word would be his "you r my chicken fry"
Sure you have heard it but couldn't help dedicating this master piece to all you wonderful people at "Drift"
For the uninitiated,try the link at great bongs page....Bon Appetite !!

Aspi , pls don't remove this poster - i love aneek's singing too , and if people can't take a jock for a jock , you don't need them nerds visiting your website anyways....

thanks for all the humor and laughts i get reading comments & articles...

Keep it up !! Aspi Rules !

Saritha said...

Cheeken fry,fish fry.....Samosa,masala dosa...ha ha ha

nice link.Now,that's what we call bong hits the bong...back with a bang.(sounds like anu mali's shayari)

Man,this place can make anybody insane.

Anonymous said...

If " an eye for an eye" implies scooping out someones eyes in retaliation then I shudder as I visualize the implications of a " Jock for a jock"
One must be quite a nerd to propose such a stuff,but good for a laugh I presume,a good and healthy attempt to crack a "Joke" I must say, thanks!ha ha ha
Dude! With such "creative" juices flowing who wants the poster down??

Sania said...

First off, my comment that spoke of trolls was a tongue in cheek reference to a brief exchange that Aspi and I had about IP tracking. No harm meant.

However, it is disconcerting to see how many people post under the 'anonymous' tag because, I mean, well couldn't you just make up a name or something? IT would lead to less confusion around here, and internet rules dictate that you immediately become proportionally more relatable with a handle.

anu g said...

Sarita, thanks but never expect my kids to vouch for that.!!!Its so easy to dole out advice, but to pratise it! I am desperately tryign to find the goodness in VOI;s darji.With Himesh, atleast he provides us entertainment...and lots to talk about here.I thot things were getting too heated up, and a wee bit ugly too, so when Bong gave this long tirade, I 'genuinely'(gosh, whenever I use the word, Him's face comes into view)thought it was time to give one of my motherly sermons, which my kids now know by heart, and automatically get into switch-off mode.I never knew that Bong was so inspired by the show judges that he would stage a walk-out like this.Anyways just like the show, alls well that ends well...and we just helped get the trps go up for aspi!

minnie said...

i have been dreaming of pigs all night....cant everybody take it in good humour?anything which makes you laugh cant be all that bad...and before himass' lovers train their guns on me...please...i like the man too::SECRET::(ALSO his singing) for making the saregampa show a much funnier place ....but never boring !

Bong hits the bong said...

Sweet Ol Anu Dahling!
Let me share a little secret with you, aspi paid us (manish, me and sidekick to name a few) a hefty amount to stage this..infact he himself slipped in the Anon mode a couple of times.....and all that for just a little boost in TRP!!...we desperately need your Moral Science lessons GranMa....the whole bunch of us..
**Spoiler** Aspi called, he wants a 30% cut on my match fee for terminating the "I Quit" drama before the agreed duration.....

Bong hits the bong said...

Hi
Minne, Hope you are all right after such a porcine night! Sure Sigmund would have come up some real weird explanation of your pig dreams…thank god he is dead! I surely couldn’t agree more to you about taking good humour But as you rightly pointed the humour had to be good.

And for your generalization about anything that makes you laugh cant be all that bad …let me draw your attention to some incidents... …think of the time when the real fat guy slipped on the banana skin and landed on the floor with a flop in most hilarious manner, you couldn’t stop laughing till you realized the poor guys bones were jutting out of his broken wrist…or say the time when that Madari on some obscure Indian street asked his Bandar “Sharukh sey shadi karogi?” and the cute monkey decked up as a doll shook her little head vigorously to show her eagerness and the crowd went in splits…you chose not to laugh knowing the poor creature shook its head just to ensure that it is not beaten after the show. Not to mention Charlie the tramp’s comical actions which seldom failed to bring out some of the deepest pathos….by the way I also remember the Mahabharata mentioning that majority of the dignitaries at Duryodhan’s court were laughing their heart out when Draupadi’s sari was being tugged at…..surely they found it funny in their own way…. was it bad?? The choice again is entirely yours.. Enough of the gyan ( blame Anu for inspiration),
when you mentioned “good” humour I guess you acknowledged the existence of “bad” humour also. I just took the liberty of mentioning a few of the same…and pleaaaaaze…this has no connection what so ever to Aneek HR, Saregamapa or any other previous post of mine..
Sweet dreams...ice creams and chocolates may be!( if u r not dieting)

Sidekick said...

bhtb, not on.... u can't out all of aspi's TRP garnering tricks!!! what will he do the next time he wants to jumpstart TRPs? more importantly, we need to keep our other sources of income going :P

minnie said...

hi Bong hits the bong
sorry :) just wanted to clarify i didnt dwelve into so much pop psychology as you did(am no freud or his bhatiji) ..i think it is sufficient to just enjoy the moment ( or the poster in this instance)and pass on without reading too much into it.
and I enjoy(love them ,would be more like it) your reviews as well(jaani dushman for example)...so doesnt poor manisha have feelings? or rakhi sawant? :-)

We had our lowest traffic of the week yesterday. Not that it matters, I'm just saying.

In case anyone is interested, apart from the kind people who stop by here regularly, the traffic peaks Sat/Sun and goes back down again.

Oink & HR in the poster look ssooooo cute!!!!!!!

Mind Rush said...

First off, the object of laughs in the poster is not the pig, it's HR.

A pig in one culture is not what a pig is another culture. Ask any person that saw the movie Babe...Pig was sooo cute and Pig was the hero.
I acknowledge that Aneek fans are offended bacuse of how they "perceived" the pig and what it represents to them. I also think that Manish had the right to post something that was done in the spirit of creativity.
I for one have learned something from these exchanges, so keep coming back, guys.

Mind Rush said...

p.s. one more thing...Love him or hate him...Him-mess Besharmiya is getting what he seeks most...premium space in the front row of your thoughts.

MANISH FOR PRESIDENT!

Aspi said...

At the risk of sounding patronizing I'll say that I'm hugely impressed with how this discussion turned out. Too often I've seen people get personally abusive and lose control. But the people who were pissed did it forcefully but with decency and the rest made their point heard.

Anu g, middle child kya? Your skills of negotiating a disagreement are extraordinary.

Also I have to second Sania's opinion on Anonymous posts. There are NO restrictions on comments so take a leaf out of Megan's book. She makes up a name almost every comment :). Feel free to make one up when you post.

Bong hits the bong said...

My dear Minnie
How I wish I were the "GREAT BONG" himself...but alas I am a different Bong and that too a bong hitting bong.. a very "less" bong I must say. a "pigi pigi bong bong" may be..Lol
Don't take me seriously dear!
I too love to enjoy the moments as they come dear, and when I don't blame the "bong" (looks at his bong and exclaims..I must change the stuff I smoke!)
Peace
And Most certainly Manisha and Rakhi do have feelings...so do I Mam! and I feel in a very special kind of way about them....ha ha ha

anu g said...

On the contrary, Aspi, was the younger pampered child! Being catapulted at a very young age,into the role of a 'badi bahu' ala Tulsi and Parvati(I m not sure whether they r negative these days, I am talking of the old-days)and living in a joint family for some years, and now the mother of two early teenagers has made me painfully aware of the fact that it requires just one small spark to ignite the atmosphere.....I think i tend to over-react at times, but I think its better to diffuse tensions before it gets out of hand. So though I am years away from being a grandma, I feel like one!

Mind Rush said...

it's cool that we have such an age range in this blog's fans.

anu g said...

age range??????I said I only 'feel' like a grandma:).

Peter Sellers said...

**Spoilers**

Manish's Oink has topped the semifinals beating the "Dibhaine Bhoish" Raja this time.
It seems calling names does help only sometimes it helps the other way about
Thank you Manish for all your creativity!
Keeps up the good job! try calling him a Monkey next time, or a mouse, or may be your next poster should be a la " Revenge of the Pink Panther" ..Ooops! should it be the Pig Panther?
Plz...continue the good job ..Oink needs you just as Raja needs HR...
Bravo!

off topic but those a**holes at IF banned me for posting a link to www.besharmiya.com

middle aged surly uptight mods suck booooooooo

Aspi said...

Interesting! IF bans Besharmiya.com. Pray, why?

who the eff knows... all i said was "link to Him-B's new website.. then link then "come on in"

apparently i was "bashing the nasal crooner

those bitches once warned me for talking about shekhar too much

LIKE WHAT THE EFF? why the eff did they want me to be versatile? i aint on srgmp..i am quite happy being a one jonar poster..

meh their loss anyway...

omg i cuss like a sailor, its terrible

Aspi said...

Random people with terrible criteria for what is kosher infest every community site. I've had a run-in with a couple of poster with major attitude problems from Sepia Mutiny - and this after one of their own asked me to post my stuff to their site.

dayum said...

i didn't even now about sepia mutiny.. fark the name is hilarious!! i just wike-ed it

is it worth going there to spread my shekhar love?

Aspi said...

Try, they take themselves extremely seriously.

heck no i had a quick look and no way am i gonna go there again... it looks sooooooooooo booooooring

ritha said...

aah so thts the *reason*ur account was banned megan! I saw a post where ppl asked y she was banned and the moderator closed that thread as well. LOL

Tania aka Tisha said...

I have loved this site and come her to enjoy its wacky humorous post.
But I guess, one can cut the 18 year old some slack and stop comparing him to a pig.
Won't elaborate further as Bong hits the bong has pretty much voiced my sentiments.

Anon, I'm deleting your comment because of the cuss words. Next time try to *** the middle out and we'll still get the message.

But I've got kids stopping by this blog. Rupal might kick my ass for letting stuff like this on here.
