I Don’t Know, Son!-18

The Perfect Tit for Tat!
Son: The BJP President Nitin Gadkari underwent an operation in a Mumbai Hospital to lose flab, dad.
Father: True, go on son.
Son: A BJP spokesperson refused to divulge the details of the operation, when asked to by a journalist, dad.
Father: Go on, son.
Son: He stated that if the Congress President (read Sonia) could undergo an operation without revealing the details to the media, then why not the BJP President?
Father: Go on, son.
Son: It appears to be a case of perfect ‘Tit for Tat”, dad!
Father: I don’t know, son!
The Affair May Continue!
Son: The Kannada Film Producers Association has banned the actress Nikita from acting in Kannada films for three years, dad.
Father: Go on, son.
Son: They say that it is her punishment for having an affair with the Kannada film hero Darshan, dad.
Father: Go on, son.
Son: When asked by the media how the ban will stop the affair, if any, the spokesperson clarified that they could not ban the affair as such, dad!
Father: Interesting! Go on, son.
Son: It seems they do not mind the affair as such, dad! What they are interested is that their films with Darshan should not suffer, dad!
Father: I don’t know, son!
The Bollywood (Silsila) Spirit!
Son: As far as affairs are concerned the Kannada film industry should learn a lesson or two from the Bollywood, dad.
Father: Go on, son.
Son: You may take the case of the legendary Hindi film producer and director Yash Chopra, dad.
Father: Go on, son.
Son: The moment he came to know that Amitab Bachhan had an affair with Rekha after his marriage to Jaya Bhaduri, he immediately produced and directed a film called Silsila, dad!
Father: Go on, son.
Son: He had such a clout that he managed to shoot the story based on the real life affair of Amitab and Rekha – both playing their respective roles - with even Jaya Bhaduri agreeing to play the role of the hapless wife in the film, dad!
Father: I don’t know, son!
The Bollywood Affairs!
Son: If the Bollywood producers were to follow the foolish decision of the Kannada Film Producers Association, then the industry would have lost most of the talented artists, dad.
Father: True. Go on, son.
Son: The careers of Waheeda Rehman (Gurudutt), Zeenath Aman (Sanjay Khan), Hemamalini (Dharmendra), Rekha (Amitab Bachhan) and Smitha Patil (Raj Babbar) would have been sealed (all of them had affairs with married heroes), if the Hindi film producers Association were to ban them, dad!
Father: Go on, Son.
Son: One could even say that the industry has indirectly encouraged such affairs, dad!
Father: I don’t know, son!
The Kingfisher Nightmare!
Son: A passenger of Kingfisher Lucknow-Delhi flight opened the emergency exit door just before the aircraft was to take off, dad!
Father: Go on, son.
Son: The man was de-planed and handed over to the authorities by the Kingfisher staff. The flight was delayed by over two hours, dad.
Father: Go on, son.
Son: When asked for the reasons for opening the door in the last minute, the authorities were stunned by the explanation given by the passenger, dad!
Father: Go on, son.
Son: He told them that he just read a news item that Hindustan Petroleum (HP) had denied the aviation fuel supply to Kingfisher as it had huge arrears of payment, dad.
Father: Interesting. Go on, son.
Son: He apprehended that the aircraft may not have sufficient fuel to lat till it landed in Delhi, dad!
Father: Go on, son.
Son: He felt he would rather jump out at the last minute than facing the disaster later, dad!
Father: I don’t know, son!
