Wonders will never cease.
What started out as just another day for Rediff Radio listener Shruti Sakhuja turned out to be very unusual.
She tells us in an e-mail:
'I work in Manhattan and heard this rumour last week that lots of Bollywood stars are in town for two major movies (Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and Jaan-e-Man). We were hoping we would get to see them.
Yesterday, a co-worker and I went out to grab lunch, when we saw tables set up in the park in front of our office building (Bryant Park). We decided to check it out, and I just could not believe my eyes! In front of me were Shah Rukh Khan [Images] and Rani Mukerji [Images]. We got so excited. Luckily, we had a camera and started clicking pictures.
They had finished the shoot and were hanging around there while the crew was packing up. They were watching a game of chess played by two crew members. Shah Rukh was smoking most the time. He looks damn good! And Rani is so sweet -- she was smiling at everyone around.
Before this incident, I used to wonder what was the big deal about this. Now, I realise that the experience is truly amazing. Now, I pray I get to see John Abraham [Images] some day!'
