A couple of things that crossed my mind last week . . .
1. Why did Amitabh Bachchan name the Girl's college he plans to build in Barabanki after daughter in law Aishwarya Bachchan & not after his Late mother Teji Bachchan ?
Also, a friend enlightened me - This act of AB means that he has named a Girls College after a person who has not completed her college education.
Yes, Mrs. Abhishek Bachchan is apparently a college dropout.
2. Watching the Star Screen Awards last weekend, i was surprised that Manoj "Bharat" Kumar was given the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Isn't it quite late ?
I mean, people like Dharmendra, Rekha, Sunil Dutt, Hema Malini, Javed Akhtar, Jaya Bachchan etc. have been awarded the Lifetime Achievement already. Why wasn't Manoj Kumar honoured earlier ?
Or, was this because of the whole OSO - Manoj Kumar fiasco. Manoj Kumar had raised a lot of dust & settled it almost abrubtly. Was this award a trade-off ? Go figure...
By the way, it definitely didn't help that the telecast people panned the camera on SRK's face more than on Manoj Kumar when he was being given the award.
