Update to post (September 13, 2010): Shashi Kapoor is NOT on facebook. A proper journalist called Prithvi Theatre and they deny it. Sigh. At least I can rest more easily knowing that Shashi himself did not publicly state that Saawariya is any kind of adjective related to "good."
[Note from Editor Self: I'm leaving this post up just for amusement of remember how excited I was to be friend-ed by Shashi Kapoor.]
Shashi has been on facebook since June and I didn't know? I'm such a failure. However, that in no way diminishes my glee at getting this email today:
Nor in seeing a post that uses an emoticon, the strange public ramblings of fans (why yes, I am familiar with "irony"), and a comment that Saawariya "is very nice!!"
Shashiji and I disagree on that one.
So what do we think? Real and written by Shashi himself? Real and written by someone else? And why now? Is there a certain project he's got underway that he will be promoting? Or perhaps just generally wanting to be a bit more public and make his presence a little more prominent?
