An open letter from Mind Rush to Shekhar

(Megan, please deliver this fariyaad directly to Shekhar)

Dear Shekhar,

Hamaari aap se ek viniti hai…

Every Tom, Dick and HR are acting in movies. Why not you, man?

I mean, you are the total package. You are a musician, you have charisma, you are good-looking and most of all, you have a great head of hair! So here is my humble proposal.

  • Drift will create an original script (you would never do a re-make.)

  • Megan will be the heroine.

  • Vishal will make the music.

  • Pentagram will drum up the finances.

  • Manish will create the posters for the movie.

  • Bong, Anu and the rest of the “drift-ers” will do the marketing.

  • I will buy the first day first show tickets for my entire khaandaan.

Is film mein emotion hoga, action hoga, drama hoga, music hoga, aur pyaar hoga…

(Lekin, is mein HR kabhi nahin hoga.)

Please say Yes!

Sincerely awaiting your response,
Mind Rush

UPDATES:
Mind Rush returns to write a script
Anu g wants to see Vishal do an item song
Megan and Shekhar argue if Shekhar should get paid cash for the flick
Manish - who has a new Himesh fan site - has gone to town designing the poster

Title suggestions?

Good question, anon!
The title "Shekhar Ka Surur" has a nice ring to it but due to unfortunate associations, it is out of question....
Drift-ers, any ideas? Manish, where are you?

i would like to know if i'll have to do some hot and heavy scenes in this movie

I'll only do them if the role demands them otherwise i will throw tantrums until the scriptwriter relents and changes the script to allow for addition of such scenes thank you

/Mind rush, going with the present pratice of titles being long and with a suffix, how about:
"Shaanth aur sureela, Megan ka dilwala - the Shekar"!!!!!

Unknown said...

How about "If you love her, Shake her"

Unknown said...

How about "Megan mein magan Shekhar". And how could we not have HR? If it's a love story, which it would be, (going by Megan's post) we would surely need a villain. Someone who would be right there, for us to throw rotten tomatoes at. Say what guys?!

priti, i agree. got to to have evil appropriately represented and who better than HR! my title: Megan, Shekhar Aur Woh! No prizes for guessing who woh is!

mind rush, g8 idea :)

Here's the sneak preview of script "Shaant aur sureela, Megan ka dilwala - the Shekhar":

Camera shows a dejected stuggling good looking musician leaving a studio. He is unemployed, drives a Merc and lives with mom in 50 room bungalow on Versova beach.

Then he gets a gig in a phoren country for a live show. Hero meets Ash #2 while singing and dancing in said phoren land.

Then the leader of the free world declares war on the country that Musician is performing at.
(Camera pans to show chaos and bombs).

Musician discovers super powers! (
Camera shows special effects.) His singing wipes out conflict in the world! His secret weapon is a microphone!!

Fake Ash does hot-n-heavy number to the theme of world peace. Camera zooms in for Shake-her.

Enters HR super-super-villian who silences Musician by talking non-stop. He talks over everyone. Kidnaps Ash wannabe.

INTERVAL. Popcorn, and garam samosa.

Ash-ki-copy escapes and performs another hot-n-heavy number to re-ignite Musician's super powers (camera zooms in for suggestive bedroom action here).

Musician's mother is also kidnapped but jigri dost Vishal brings in heavy metal to the rescue.

Musician and heroine are reunited. The world is saved again!

Maa curses super-super villian to forever wear a topi and sing nasally.

Now all I need is Shekhar to show up for a sitting. I will bring the script and a Mont Blanc for him to sign on the dotted line.

Mindblowing Mindrush.
Thanks for so kindly using my title..... tho I must confess its too long , so maybe u should choose a shorter one.
Cld u include an item song by Vishal.Its great fun to see him prance and jump around when he sings.
Also u would have to include Ismail as HR's sidekick-villain (No offence to the real Sidekick here).Ismail is the latest HR-fan.I have been noticing that Ismail has become great pals with Him.Todays Times of India lets us know why.Apparently Him has introduced Ismail to the t-series guys, and inspired him to sing for his own album. Ismail says that bansali asked him to sing 'lut gayi' years ago, and he refused saying that singing should be best done by singers......I guess a few months of Him;s influence has changed him totally...Him certainly plays GOD!!!!

By the way, Mindrush, wheres the heroine....I had expected Megan to come here, and give all her soundbytes, fluttering eyelashes et al.......See, we just include her name in the title, and she has already started to bhaav-maaro!

anu G you don't worry alright... i was just practicing being a future superstar.. i will post my views in greater details after the weekend's over and all traces of hangover has left my body

oops, just realised that possibly megan calls herself the next aishwarya.....cmon, is jonar main to already bahut log hain.....u need to create ur own identity....only then can as himesh puts it, u can get ut roti

Unknown said...

For Megum (errr....Shekhar's Begum; huh! what's with me - I mean our very own Megan), roti is history! As HR would say - it's history...LOL

Unknown said...

Megan has already arrived - even Shaky admits that in a candid confession! :-)

Will I get paid?

Quiz time...

All the judges except Vishal listens to the songs with both the headphones. Can anyone guess why Vishal hears it with only one side?

(My son has an interesting observation for this..)

he is a closet gossip fiend and doesn't miss out on auntyji-esque gossip that himesh and ismail indulge in

I need the Moolah M. How else I am going to cope up with the permanent alimony?

Unknown said...

Shekhar! You are getting begum megan, and you are bothered about moolah/alimony...huh! **looks indignant** You don't sound like our real, genuine Shekhar. He is far too polite, and when it comes to (his Begum) Megan, there surely are no strings attached! Stop the fake act, else HR will sue you. It's HR's prerogative...!!!

Anonymous said...

Dear Shekhar,
At the risk of sounding like a naive, giddy fan I am delighted that you read this site and posted comments!

Moolah ki intazaam ho jayega. My #2, yaani ki Raabert, will come to a gali in Saat Bangla with a suitcase full of notes....Aap time aur date kahiye.

Else, when you come to listen to the script in the US, suitcase mein dollar milenge.

Oye, Manish, Poster to genius hai! Lekin, why does Aspi Havewala get his name on the poster?
This is turning out to be "Mind Rush Productions."

Anonymous said...

"digital nasal sound" LOL!

Unknown said...

Yeow mann...this place is relentlessly phunny (a la Bhappida!). Look forward to this place after a day's hard work...Aspi. yoohoo for you, but also for all those who spill their creative juices to make this a place worth visiting. MeganeAzam is a super title. The tides of destiny - Megan is a superstar overnight. Even tho' you are the fountain head of this creative place - we will have to grant Mind Rush his right! This is an out and out MR production. Produced, directed, screen-played; and who knows maybe will even steal a couple of scenes. Way to go all you stars...

Manish, you are a poster genius. ROTFL!!

Your unique titling style.

Anonymous said...

me and my brother used to make fun of the song when we were kids, cuz the dude didn't look 17 from any angle
and it used to be on TV every week!!!! like how Kaho Na Pyar Hai comes on every 2nd day in set max these days
our other favorite song as kids = what is your style number what is your mobile number
and i used to watch Aur Pyar Ho Gaya at least once a day and i used to talk like Ash in the movie and act like her, it was wack

Anonymous said...

hmmm, Meg, but your posts smack of wisdom far greater than your supposed chornological age would have us imagine...
-love your posts but have healthy skepticism re: your age :-)

heheh thanks!

Anonymous said...

one of my orkut friends had another title idea

"Dil Wale Megania Le jayenge "

Anonymous said...

Manish,that poster is totally fab.

You guys should have chosen a latest name.

Keeping up with the tradition of

Rang De Basanti

Chak de India

how about -

Shek de Megan

Anonymous said...

Shek De Megan - a patriotic love story

Anonymous said...

Manish should make more posters of other potential movie titles

come on dude get yo talent juices flowing

Anonymous said...

Speaking of 'Shek de...'

Cant wait to see Shekhar do that gently hitting his own b*m,singing
'apni to patshala,music ki patshala......loose control' lol

- Same anon as above

shekhu jaan has no ass.. i will provide picture proof later tonight..

Perhaps he can strike Vishal's bum during the song? After all there is a love story there too and our movies would be all-encompassing.
