Yes, there are questions - but until now I haven't paid much attention to them.
And now: remember Defect Oberoi? The guy once fell in some tagdaa love with Bollywood's new age legend Mesmerya Rai. Unfortunately Mesmerya's previous man - Sullen - took that liaison quite hard. Pretty soon Defect's phone was being peppered with threatening phone calls.
At this point Defect did the unthinkable. With Mesmerya away on some vilaayati shooting, Defect issued a call to the press and revealed Sullen's distinctly unstar-like behavior to the presswallas. Clearly Defect had crossed the line. Mesmerya dumped him (ironically by SMS). Sullen declared war on him. Everyone moved on since except Defect's career - which is still under kaala paani by Sullen.
Defect tried hard to make up. He once mimed a public apology on stage during an awards show to Sullen, but to no avail. Recently Defect sent out feelers again - even offering to be on my favorite show Bas Khatam with Sullen.
As soon as I heard this I called Sullen.
"Sullen, is it true!" I asked "Defect will be on your show!"
"Jee ha!" hollered Sullen "He will be there David"
"Um, this is Aspi. Are the dates nakki?"
"Arre, sorry for the mix up yaar. Its still only 2 pm in the morning - can't blame me. Yes, the dates and questions have been planned"
"Can I know what the questions are?" I begged "My readers would love to see them in advance!"
"Sure" yawned Sullen. "Check with my secretary tomorrow"
"Cool" I said.
"You aren't going to ask me when I'll do shaadi?"
"I wasn't planning to ask this time"
"God bless you!" Sullen hung up with a flourish.
The next day I called Sullen's secretary and reminded her of his promise. Sure enough in an hour the producers at Phoney Entertainment had emailed me a list of questions.
I'm sharing these with the millions of fans of Bas Khatam, Sullen and Defect. No need to thank me.
