The days were more eventful today, I knew the first thing for me to do was to get my portfolio done, I figured Camera Arts would be the perfect place to start after all this was the photography shop I use to get my pictures made in. It is not a very fancy shop and is located in the Lokhandwala market. It’s an old photoshop of sorts with a small studio and some computers were the digital prints and scanned before printing. They do some cleaning and coloring before the final prints are given to you. I got my photo’s clicked, the hair has gone grey and I have put on a lot more weight, my face was larger now and less chiseled, yes age has caught up it has been over eight years since I last got my snaps clicked to distribute to casting people , a long time. But the shipowner recognized me and greeted me,” read about your dad’s tragedy, now you are back in acting stay with good people, very unfortunate what happened .” Wherever I am going either to get work or to meet people, everyone recognizes me, it’s as if I never left people to remember my film roles and have been very welcoming. I decided to get a hair cut and a facial at a local shop and the barber remembered me for my role with shah rukh khan. The hair cut was smooth and I was advised not to color my hair as now I would get mature roles. I decided to go for a more mama type of look after all my friend Manish was working on the mama molester song also from my web-series.
As I walked through the old by lanes of ARAM Nagar and Shree Ji I managed to bump into old casting agents, who wished me luck on my return to acting, numbers were exchanged and now I feel I am getting back into the acting beat. It has been raining heavily in Mumbai and I had a very sore throat, which I soothed with some lemon drops and cough mixture.
I meet up with one of the casts of my film, the actor who is meant to be doing my role in the web series the young anuj tikku. He looked percent to em and assured me he would be able to do an urban English accent easily. I was convinced and asked him to read my book first to get to the bottom of the role.
Meanwhile, our mama molester song is getting ready, I have to get my voice in shape to record it in a rap form. That will take a week or so as my tarot is yet to clear up. Till then it is dreaming with Manish and his mates about who to cast and what channel to approach to get funding for my project, dreams and more dreams, well and truly it is webbing the web series web. Mumbai I am, loving it I fell that I have come back to my roots again there is joy in my heart and I am loving chasing a purpose in life, which I had lost for some time. Till then keep reading my blog.
