I was in the five star hotel’s conference room. Attending a lecture delivered by Mrs. Jaya Bacchan. It was a huge audience there and the lecture was in full swing. It was interesting and people were glued to it. Somehow, as I’m, I did not find it very interesting and decided to just leave the conference room as quietly as possible. Lucky me, I managed to just do that and came out in the lounge and thought of exiting the hotel. While passing the lounge I saw a familiar figure sitting on the sofa and reading something. I dismissed the thought of finding him there and that it was just someone who is a look alike may be. But on the second thoughts, I went closer to confirm. The moment I reached closer to him I realised that it was not a look alike but he. It was Amitabh Bacchan.The Amitabh Bacchan, waiting at the lounge for Jaya Bacchan to finish with the lecture so that they can leave.
As a matter of fact I did not even think once and sat just beside him and pretended to read a magazine kept for guests sitting at the lounge. He was not disturbed by all this. He kept on reading what he was and did not even look at me or anywhere else. The aura was amazing. The way he was dressed up in a silk chudiar-kurta and carrying it with such an elegance. I was amazed with the glow on his face, by the highest shade of peace and by his body language. There was no air of arrogance or attitude around him. The fact that he behaved in a simple manner like- A husband is waiting for his wife and not any super star Amitabh Bacchan waiting for his equally super star wife Jaya Bacchan. He was so down to earth, so subtle in his conduct.
Finally I broke the silence by shifting a little bit towards him and saying HI. He looked at me with elegance and responded in a very polite manner-HEY! I got courage from his response and moved further in my conversation with him and without even knowing we both were into so much talking. We spoke about his acting, and that how I’m a big fan of his, that he is a good human being and that I’m an HR professional, that where do I live and where do I work and what are my interests and his, and that why he is waiting for his wife here (because he likes waiting for her like this-how cute and mushy!) etc. It was almost 1 and half hours when we realised that we are talking so much. Suddenly I remembered that I should at least take a picture with him, an obvious move that one makes when one meets a super star, to preserve the moment and to show it to one’s friends and relatives. So I called a waiter, who was around at that time, to click us a picture with my digi cam. I handed over the cam to the waiter and came back to where I and Amitabh were sitting. He clicked few pictures and I felt I achieved something!!! I mean such a long chat session with senior AB and a few pics. What does it all tell you! Too much to be true!
Well, then we bid good bye to each other with exchanging the email-ids and with the promise that he will surely visit my blog and that I’ll keep visiting his as always and that he will surely try to catch up whenever possible ! Ha! He just patted on my back, as if a father figure doing it and saying all the best, and went away with Jaya Bacchan.
Aww, how I wish the lecture could have lasted for some more time. How I wish could have spoken more with him. How I wish I could have remained in the bed for much longer while. How I wish this could all happen in reality!!!
Oh Yeah, this was a dream that I saw 2 days nights back. When I got up I was so very happy that at least it could happen in my dreams that I met the man I admire a lot. I really like Amitabh Bacchan. I mean I could hardly find anyone who would not love senior AB.
I tried to analyse my dream and found that because I admire his acting, his way of life and the kind of personality he has I long to meet him just this once. Since I have come across so many TV stars as well as the big film stars I always feel why can’t I come across senior AB someday? So may be this desire which resides in my subconscious mind popped out as my dream this night. And I’m smiling to this day when I remember the dream!! May be it will come true soon 😉
