A secret affair


I still remember that day very clearly as if it was yesterday. I came back rushing from school and dumped my bag in one corner. I made a dash towards the T.V when my Granny asked’ Arre…what is this? Wash your hands eat something, do your homework and then watch TV.'
I got irritated and replied, “Granny please not now. Will do everything you say after this. Promise.’

Granny: 'What is so urgent right now?'

Me (blushing) : ’Abhi is coming

That was my madness for him then and it still continues. It has been two decades and I guess I have not gotten over him yet. I still have to watch his every movie, every interview, and every song that comes on TV even if I already know it all by heart. What began as a teenage romance is today a full fledged affair which is still going strong. For as I like to say he is my first and last crush ever.

I have loved him as Abhimanyu, Arun Verma, Amarkant Verma, Arjun, Babloo, Dev Saran, Devdas, Don , G-one ,Kabir Khan, Kishenlal,Mohan Bhargava, Major Ram Prasad Sharma, Om, Pawan Raj Gandhi Raghavan, Raj, Rahul, Rizwan Khan, Sahir Khan, Surinder Sahni,  Shekhar Subramanium, Shankar, Veer Pratap Singh , Vikram Mayur and all the other forms he has taken till now the keep us entertained. For Me he is the epitome of love and romance.

To give you a glimpse of my obsession with him – Well! My family members don’t watch any of his movies with me - reason being my idiotic behavior. When he is on screen I am known to blow flying kisses to him, sigh as I make a puppy face and stare at him longingly, have a smug on my face with a weird look, sing along loudly…depending on my mood and the movie I could be doing any of the above or all. They just don’t understand how difficult it is for me to NOT do all this!*sigh*

Yes I am obsessed with him. He is the only man who can still give me butterflies in my stomach, make me feel all gooey like a stupid teenager in love as I swoon to his romantic numbers imagining all those wonderful things. I have had huge posters of him adorning my walls throughout my teenage. Gradually all that meta-morphed into a scrap book which has pictures from almost every walk of his life; be it his childhood house, with his parents as a new born baby, with his siblings, school life, college life, his friends, playing football, his pet dog, wedding, his children, all his movie clippings, interviews..Everything.

Needless to add I have all his movies – both audio and video though I have watched them a zillion times by now. In my worst moods there is nothing else that can calm me better than his songs. And no prizes for guessing what my wake-up alarm-tone is right now. [ It is the poetry in HIS voice from Jab tak hai Jaan *gushes*]. Not to forget all the lessons I have learnt in his paathshala !!

Come whatever may one thing is never going to change - and that's him as continues to grow more cuter with every passing day! And for me He will always be MY HERO - my lifelong crush <3

Today, exactly 47 years ago a star was born with cute dimples and twinkling eyes – I just pray that lovely smile and that twinkle in the eyes remain like this forever as he continues to create magic on screen!

  1. happy birthday to him!

    You are surely a great fan. He is lucky to be admired by you.

    Do you know all the names of his character by-heart or googled it?

    1. :D

      Thanks !

      I don't know about his luck part as I am sure he is loved and admired by millions around the world.

      No google... that little scrap book mine on him helped me with that... I even have some of his dialogues penned there <3

  2. Hahaha I had my phase of SRK-madness. It isn't anything compared to yours, however. I remember keeping his picture in my university books and everytime, peek at it and go into a flurry of hyperventilation. I called it my SRK-attack. I think it sort of phased out during KANK, which coincided with a real-life heartbreak. However, my heart went over to Ranbir.... and I think at the moment I'm not into anyone really now :D But this certainly brought great memories :) Waking up to his voice in Kal Ho Na Ho...and jumping up with joy and dancing to Mahi Ve with my hairbrush.. sigh. :)

    1. "SRK attack" - ask Me- I have it everytime I see him B)

      Oh even I did not like KANK and I have never watched Kal Ho na Ho.. I simply cannot see him dying on screen.

      I am glad it brought back memories to you of all this fun - reminds me of what I did today morning :D

      Delete
    2. No, even him dying, while everyone laughed there was something so uniquely srk-ish.. you know how he does that lopsided whimsical smile? and I actually laughed during that part. Kal Ho Na Ho is soooooo worth watching him in, Me!

      I wanted to ask you which SRK avatar would you choose for yourself? If you HAD to choose only ONE! (I hope noone else has asked this)

      Delete
    3. Oh yes....how can I forget that smile :)

      I watch all tha happy cute parts but after Mahi Ve... I cannot stop crying! :(

      Well though difficult, but to make a choice that would be Main Hoo Na - I simply adore him in that one. That quiet, serious, strong, dependable sorts but cute and mushy at heart *sigh*

      And Sushmita being my fav also adds to that thing.

      You are the first one asking me this :D

  3. You may not like what I am writing. But, you know, I always tell what goes through my mind. Psychologists have stated Celebrity Worship Syndrome is an obsessive-addictive disorder. It is a disease. I sincerely hope you don’t have that.

    Happy birthday to SRK.

      Your honesty is always appreciated SG!!

      Having said all of the above I would also like to say I have never wanted to meet him or take his autograph. There have been instances when I could have managed that but let it go as for it - that would break the magical charm around it. I want it to be like this... ! SO I guess I am not suffering from obsessive addictive disorder! :P

      What I now feel for him is more of an admiration and respect for being all that he is - a wonderful husband and a doting father <3

    2. Read your reply. Thanks. Your words “that would break the magical charm” reminded something I read long time ago. Sivaji Ganesan, one of the greatest Indian movie actor, said the following long time ago:

      "Movie actors should not come close to the fans. Otherwise, the magical charm about the actor will be gone”.

      You used the same word “magical charm” that was uttered by him even before you were born.

    3. WOW!!

      I did not know that :)

      But I genuinely believe that. I want to believe in that larger than life persona and if we meet that charisma will surely vanish!

      Thanks for this - It really made my day!!

      Delete
  4. Hahaha I can't believe you wrote this. It's terribly cute <3 You sound like an infatuated teen girl who is head over heels for SRK :))
    YOU SOUND SO CUTE!! :D :*

    I've never had a crush on any actor. :| Maybe Raj Kapoor? But he was well gone before I was born! I'm CRAZY about Kareena Kapoor, but that doesn't count. My favorite actors are Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, but umm, not that into them ;)

    Haha hugs and love you tons!!! :*

      He he he - I did... because I felt things were getting a bit too serious and dramatic since past few weeks on my blog. And what better reason than HIM to make things lighter ;)

      And yessss when it comes to him I am like that. Don't ask me how much have I begged for someone with me when I go to watch Jab tak hai Jaan and what a long list of do's and don'ts has been handed over to Me in response :/

      You know this actors crush keeps changing for my friends and cousins so frequently that I wonder if I am normal..you know sticking to one actor for about 2 decades!!!

      Thanks so much for those lovely compliments *giggling & blushing*

      Loads of love and hugs to you too...<3

  5. I love his charisma and his attitude! He was so adorable in the 90's with those long shirts and charming personality! I always tried to copy him, but failed. Obviously :P

    1. Oh yes.. he was unique. With that messy looks and devil may care attitude he was really different and maybe thats what made him more adorable <3

  12. Awwww.....a nice one, even I USED to be his fan, but after the song Darde Disco, I don't know, I couldn't accept him in such role, the six packs, the hunk type look...I mean, he is not such types (macho types)

    He is supposed to be Raj, the man of every girls dream...the mushy character, not DON types.

    1. I know... can understand. But you know why I loved OSO - for that one scene where Deepika Padukone meets SRK in the next birth and stares at him wide eyed. And then when he touches her she faints... Oh! That is the closest I can think of what will happen if I get to meet HIM some day :)

      He is eternally "The Raj" and that is the reason he is back to what he does best - romance in Jab tak Hai Jaan <3

    2. Aww...that scene...ya...*blushes*
