Contacts!

Only Parmesh could connect me to such key folks in the media sector in Bombay! Among others, he has put me in touch with Rajeev Masand who has written for most major Indian newspapers, served as the Entertainment Editor of Star News, and produced the hit show Masand ki Pasand. He now works for TV18.

And then there is Shashi Baliga, editor of Filmfare! I can't tell you how excited I am at the prospect of meeting the editor of Filmfare, and all the journalists who write for Filmfare. And, how cool would it be if I got to tag along with a filmfare journo when s/he goes out to interview a star, maybe Rani Mukherjee...i think i'd totally lose it, stand there, eyes glazed, much like Raghu Romeo when he managed to get near the sets of his favorite soap opera. Maybe I should keep a little gift handy in case I meet someone?! Suggestions?

  • I am sure this would be very interesting!!! tagging around with the journalists.. and I agree film journalism is very different from a newspaper/print/even TV journalism...

    i hope to read more in future posts. ;-D

  • i've done the tagging along bit, and the independent interviewing too. trick is to behave superfly and unaffected, even if you're privately drooling at the thought of constantly dropping the name of the star in question and recapitulating their smallest tics for your friends for the next 6 months ;)

    (hi, btw!)
