Lately, the news media have had a field day speculating about Abhay's girlfriend- sometimes she has been "someone in New York," at other times a "British Beauty Queen" (BBQ anyone?), along with the luminous Sonam Kapoor. Which is all rehashed news in bits and pieces from his old interviews and is all good, but then there are the ladies I WISH he would go out with:
1- Minissha Lamba- they look so cute together!
2- Soha Ali Khan- v cute too.
Who do you prefer him with?
Matchmaking done (which I suck at in real life), there is finally insight about his next, which apparently IS curently titled just "Road Movie"- it sounds deliciously surreal and interesting: It’s a film about a journey of a guy who drives a truck of moving cinema through the expanse of Rajasthan and Gujarat. On his way, he meets three characters — a boy, an old man and a woman. It’s a film where reality and fantasy meet. You can read the rest of the interview from which this is extracted here.
Also, by now most of us know of his lecture at Wharton, which incidentally is the B-school I've aspired for a few years now- one day soon I hope.
Meanwhile, the cousins are having their say; Sunny is being appropriately brotherly and complementary (he was in SoCal earlier this month! I suspect for a hair weave!) and prepping for Cheers, which I cant wait for already. Esha says is aspiring to Manorama and Dev D- seriously woman, take an acting class first, and learn to emote with the face, the eyes. She is obviously not getting acting gigs, and should maybe stick permanently to dancing, which she IS good at.
Last on the radar is Dibakar Bannerjee, the brilliant and honest director of "Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!" "and "Khosla Ka Ghosla," who in a interview has discussed potentially making a political thriller with Abhay. Yay!
