The Kat and the mouse

So last weekend, Katrina Kaif scared the hell out of me.

I was at this shop buying hindi DVDs when I saw a section of oldies. I bent down to take a look at the bottom-most shelf and when I got up I sensed someone standing right behind me, breathing down my neck.

I quickly turned around and my heart literally stopped beating for a second.

With utter fear.

There she was, Katrina Kaif, within inches of me, looking impossibly gorgeous as usual, staring straight at me with those green eyes and that half-smile.

Now here's the problem with making six-feet cardboard cutouts. Cardboard cutouts should either be very small or very big. It should be apparent at the very first glance that they are, indeed nothing but cardboard cutouts. Making them about the same size as an average human being just makes them so much more scary because they're the same size as you, they're not even three-dimensional, and they're lookin' at you with steely eyes. Just like Katrina was looking at me. I could almost sense her disapproval when she saw the DVD of Sadhna's 'Mera saya' in my hands instead of her 'Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya?'

It was as if she'd suddenly popped out of nowhere. I almost stumbled and fell.

I quickly recovered, and just like any normal human being, I looked around furtively to check if anyone had seen the mighty Sayesha frightened off by a mere cardboard cutout.

Nope, no one was looking at me. Phew.

But she still was. :-/

Nirwa said...

You should have shown her a DVD of Suryavanshi (a Salman Khan, Amrita Singh and Sheeba classic - if there exists one, that is) and shikari khud shikar ho jaata! :P

Kya mast narrate karti hai incident, maan gaye. Woh Raghvan champak apne aap ko story teller bolta hai, he can take some quick lessons from this blog!

Iday said...

I first thought you saw Katrina Kaif. Then i thought u imagined/dreamed Katrina turning into a card board cut-out coz she was disappointed on seeing u.

Then it happened. I read "mighty Sayesha" for the second time in 2 minutes and i laughed so much that i came back to my senses :P

Chirag said...

Typo .. Raghav, not Raghvan

sumedh said...

Oh great.
And you almost scared me for a second.

Coz I thought she was ACTUALLY THERE.[dunno, but that sounds like a very unlikely proposition]

the next google search that brings someone to your blog will be..

"sexy katrina eating cardboard"

Rohit Talwar said...

TGFI is right!

On second thoughts, it has happened with me too. I, once, thought some dumb hindi actor was in the same store. I can't recall the name :/

And I wonder why people are crazy about Kartina :-/

Princesse said...

I am glad the cut-out looked life lke! :) You sometimes come across these hideously distorted cut-outs of actors and actresses that are about 8 feet tall! Those are REALLY scary, especially at night!

#Shub,

#Duhita,

#Princesse,

#Raam Pyari,
Tu bhi hans rahi hai??? Wait tujhe jab store mein Prem Chopra ka cutout dikhega na... tab pata chalega! :/
ps: I know it was you re... aur kaun itna 'maxxx' and 'luk' likhta hai? :)

Sudeep said...

Sayesha said...

#Sudeep,
Totally agree with you man... jhakkas item hai re... itni raapchik hai ki uski acting koi dekhtaich nahin... which is good for her career anyway. :D

Abhishek said...

haha...sahi one!

Sumedh said...

No no.You got me wrong.

I wasn't scared of her being there.
Was scared of her being there.

Chirag said...

Are woh useless pop singer, Raghav, Storyteller karke album nikaali thi. (www.raghav.com)

Harshi said...

Haha.....:-) cardboard cut-outs...I know what you mean. There's this one of some actress right near the restroom of a hindi movie theater I go to...and that too...the pose is with her hands on her hips..LOL.

Sayesha said...

#Abhi,

#Sumedh,
Achha achha! :D
