Here is the story of a kiss retold – between Badshah Khan Shah Rukh and Jangli Billi Priyanka Chopra. Remember the sizzling chemistry between the duo in Don 1 and 2?
In a shimmery, black droopy-shouldered gown, Piggy Chops is called on to the stage by Shah Rukh, who kept the audience glued to his acts with various co-actors. Anticipation?
The hand-holding continues... Is Shah Rukh whispering 'wow, wow, wow' for her daring performance earlier in the evening?
How did you do that, PC? Rise up dramatically in the air seated in that imaginatively constructed Ganpati and shower the delighted audience with shiny bits of confetti?
Oh, you want to know if you will get the Best Actress for Barfi! Sorry, can't let it out yet even if you look deeply into my eyes! (Psst! Vidya Balan got it for Kahaani folks.)
You won't let up, will you Piggy Chops? The answer is still a 'No'... Tell me instead if you were able to spot my pony from top?
Oops! You are leaning now... for a better look of my ponytail? No, we can't discuss Don 3 here.
Smackeroo! Well, thank you... that was very sweet. Still can't confirm either your award or Don 3.
How do I look, Priyanka? Gauri chose the jacket. And Suhana is also here at the 19th Annual Colors Screen Awards. It is a family affair!
Phew, you have pulled away! Let me tell you, the list of Screen winners reflects a film industry in the throes of change, busy shedding its creaky old formulae and moving into new, uncharted, exciting areas.
Uff! No lipstick please. Sometimes it can be hard to rub off. Ranbir is also here – to pay tribute to the great stars of the past and present. And mind you, he will dance with Mom Nitu.
What I have to do for my heroines! I am embarrassed now. Should I mimic your autistic turn in Barfi!? You sure made a strong bid for the Best Actress' role!
Yes, of course! I can be a much better Jhilmil than you. It is best to act autistic in such situations. (I am sorry, if I am being politically incorrect.)
Yes, now please take over for some time. I have revved up the night since the beginning. There are some 20 more awards to go. Karan, please help me!
Haath to chhod, meri Maa. Aur kuchh baki hai kya?
Ok, don't give me the Best Actress award, Shah Rukh! At least, my act tonight left them all gaping – some with envy!
Chal yaar, we are both in the same industry, the same awards, the same sets, even same green rooms. Now let's concentrate on the Best Actor. (Psst, that went to Irrfan Khan and Ranbir Kapoor.)
Yes, let's move on, shall we Shah Rukh? In a year when the story was the undisputed king, I am sure people enjoyed this sub-plot of ours.
