The wave of relief...

He was shocked when he got the call from the CM's office. actually it was a combination of two shocks, one that the cm of a state could blatantly ask for a bribe, and two, they had found out the truth about his activities...
it was all because of his girlfriend's stupid idea... when they had got into the
relationship, she was already an acknowledged star, and he was the star on the horizon.. the entire industry had heaped praise on his acting skills, and were sure that he would be the next big thing in bollywood... but alas, all his films had bombed miserably, and he had gotten coverage for all the wrong reasons...
in a fit of rage, his girlfriend had told him that the only reason she wasnt leaving him was that she didnt want the tag of a 'fair weather' girlfriend... she had a history of ditching her last boyfriend when he needed her most... but that didnt stop her from chiding him, whenever she got the chance... including saying that his theme song should be an mltr song that went ' i'm not an actor, i'm not a star'.... and after she had come back from the international movie festival and tongues started wagging about the hollywood role, she had become intolerable...
that was around the time when the tsunami struck... that was when she came up with what at that time seemed a brilliant idea... she told him that the waves had done their job, and since he wasnt exactly making waves in his trade, he should get some good pr coverage by doing some relief work.. and in her typical bitchy fashion, she had said that his going off would be a relief to her too..
and so he had gone to the inflicted areas, and since he wasnt exactly cut out to do relief work, he had bribed the journalists to do stories about him.. he still remembered how difficult it was to get the natural looking photographs and testimonials.... and now, that state's cm had come to know about it, and was threatening to let the secret out..he decided he couldnt afford to bribe her, he would rather bribe the journalists again, to prevent bad pr...
it was all because of his girlfriend... from now on, he decided he would stand up for himself and be v.oberoi, and stop being what his friends teased him to

be - v. obey rai!!
until next time, sometimes stars get struck too

IdeaSmith said...

Oi...a real Ash Rai hater? U show unusually good taste...for a man that is :p...

Ash said...

now now, manu ... don't be so harsh on me ? don't you think each of us is responsible for his or her actions ? Is 'v.obey rai' not old enough to make his own disicions ? why blame poor me ?

why does the world love to hate me ?

manuscrypts said...

ideasmith: first up, i'll have to confess, a long time back, i was an ash fan (during the 'hi, i am sanjana' pepsi ad).. and yes, we'll have that gender war sometime soon ..hehe

ash: jobless i see, if you have actually come visiting here :p

Garfy said...

Whoa! An idea already! :) Perhaps the others arent entirely exaggerrating when they call you a genius!

Okie... I need details.. book on what? And write it wen you retire? Yeah right? Cant you begin now? weekends, boring office meetings, tiring family get-togethers!

Sqrl/NT said...

AW come on! Atleast the poor dude tried.. he couldnt have gone all the way there just for PR! and we all know how jobless our reporters are.. this is pure chadhaaving a guy only to strike him down...
I love obby ..:(

manuscrypts said...

garfy: no one has called me a genius, and if someone has, they have been exaggerating :).. about the book, if i tell u exactly what it is, it wont be fun reading it, would it, if it does come out.. it does need a lot of research, which i have started, something i felt needs to be written.. its just a tale from a different perspective..

sqrl: ah, an oberoi fan, i c :)
