Absence makes heart fonder ?


I hope it is true in this case. i know it’s been long. Really long. This time along with my work I also went on a trip of my own. I deliberately stayed away from all the limelight and also your love, care and concern. It is not that I did not have time to write or I did not think of you all. It was just that I wanted you’ll to also get used to my periods of absence because that is how this year may just turn out to be. I will be in far flung areas throughout this year so please do not take my absence as being indifferent.

Anyway, as always your love kept trickling in from all sides. I was in Switzerland for over a month. And I think not a day passed when one of you did not send her/his good wishes. It was a very very hectic shoot and a very demanding one too because of the weather conditions and locations. But we managed to pull off some incredible stuff. Thanks to the Director, Mr Rajeev Jhaveri. I am sure this one is going to be a treat for all of you.

It was a beautiful experience working with actors from various countries. Gemma is a gem in the real sense. You cant help but fall in love with her and Catarina is a true blue Italian woman – warm, caring, sensitive and attractive. She made half the unit cry while saying goodbye. But the maximum time spent was with my Indian counterpart – Gauhar Khan. And all i can say is that I would love to be paired with her again. She is a beautiful person, a live wire with loads of talent. And I can’t not remember Mr. Victor Banerjee, whose brief presence during the shoot refreshed all of us. His sense of humour, knowledge and experience can make anyone his fan for a lifetime.

It was a month long stay at Champoussin in the Valaise county of Switzerland and I am sure it will stay with me for a lifetime. One of the most beautiful places in the world and one of the best people to interact with. Our caretakers from the Swiss side were one of the best people I have interacted with till date. Even though language was a barrier, communication never stopped and you realise that as long as you are warm, loving and positive you don’t need words to communicate. Even though our schedules went haywire the Swiss team didn’t desert us even for a second. I genuinely wish them all a very beautiful life and hope to meet them many more times in my life.

So, finally I am back and Fever is over as of now. I am very quickly shifting my energies to another project( details will be revealed later). I will be shooting in Mumbai for the next one month. It is another mad caper. Let’s hope we finish all the outdoors before monsoons greet us in Mumbai.

I am hoping that all of you are doing very well in your respective lives and in the best of your health and spirit. And if things went a little ‘not as planned’ then i guess a few ups and downs will only make the journey worthwhile eventually.

Shall try and keep updating you about my whereabouts as regularly as possible.

Love, as always.
Keep smiling

  2. Yaaro.. Rk baat karni thi.. King hamare liye apna poora tym movies ko de rahe hai taki hum unhe jyada se jyada dek paye.. Unhone apne health apni family ki b parwah nahi ki sirf hamare liye.. Hamare liye we fir se aamna k sath onscreen aaye.. Aur sirf guest appearing nahi.. Dance aur screen ko b bada kiya.. Only for his fans.. But humne kya kiya? Kitne sare fake pages unke nam ka misuse kar rahe he.. N v cant do anything.. Coz v r blocked.. Jyada se jyada report kar diya.. But is dat enough?? A big no… Page b wahi.. Account b wahi.. And image kharab king ki ho rahi hai.. Pata nahi king k sat hi itna bura q hota hai.. Kabhi unka email account hack kar lete hai.. Unka blog block ho jata he.. To kabhi log unke name ka misuse karte he.. Hum sabko in fake pages/acc ko unlike/un4nd karna hoga n all king lovers will do it.. n hum ek o9 petition file karenge to remove those pages/accs. So r u all with me?? Also requesting to share this view..

  12. Hey R,

    You are the best actor I have ever watched on screen. Please keep up the good work. Would love to see you rise and rise. See you shine is like a personal accomplishment.

    Love you selflessly

  13. Good you ended the title with a question mark. Dont believe in it, because that phrase can be true only if the fondness was lesser last year when you were present a lot (blogging regularly) when compared to what is felt now. Don’t believe in the adage ‘out of sight, out of mind’ either. And fully believe when you say the reason for the long absence is not indifference.

    Very very happy you could complete FEVER. Hope all the remaining work gets completed on time. It is nice reading everything written about the shoot and your experience with the locals. You look very very handsome in all the photos and videos. Very Bond. You are becoming a global star :-) .

    Your three heroines are beautiful and sexy and sure your feelings for them is reciprocated. While close to two years back Gemma tweeted about spending an entire afternoon snogging a gorgeous actor, this time she tweeted about an evening kissing the handsome actor.
    But why oh why have you posted a pic only with the Bond girl. Is it because the true blue Indian man developed a soft spot for her! Was it a tearful goodbye for the actor as well :-) . Ooorrr maybe you posted it because the opportunity (contest) to see you shoot with her in Valais did not materialize.

    When even the most beautiful place on earth needs advertising, hope your movie is well marketed and gets a very good release and we get to see this year all the ‘incredible stuff’ you pulled off and it becomes very successful. It will.

    All the best for all your Endeavours :-) . Waiting to see the Ford one.

    We have seen and heard so much about Bhagat, nice seeing Kishore, your make-up artist.. Good to know you have such fine men with you.

    As always
    A true-blue fan.

  14. I have some more things to say.
    Good to know that u enjoyed your work &stay there. Hope u got to enjoy the beautiful locations &beautiful weather in between the shoot.
    Yashji ki films yad a gai. Hope koi v.romantic song ho Fever me shot in Switzerland.
    Hope the film shapes up well & u r happy with the final result. It will be a v.big hit i am sure.
    One more good thing that no mishap happened this time like at the shoot of T.21 in Fiji.
    This is my first interaction with u through ur blog. I am so happy today.
    Want to share so many thoughts with u but some other time.
    I hope u read all the messages posted here. Aisa n ho ki mera message sab padh le bas ek apko chod kar.
    Friendship Day pe apke post ka intzar rahega.
    Your fan forever
