real life dharamji

Dhanno has pasted on her cupboard doors –

6 posters of Drake Bell,

4 of Hillary Duff,

3 of Avril Lavigne,

1 of Ranbir Kapoor,

1 of a bulldog in a blue denim jacket,

1 of a poodle in a pink jacket,

1 photo-shopped picture of her with Drake Bell,

A school group photo of me in Std VIII A, in St. Anne’s School, Pune, 1977,


A school group photo of her in Std. VIII A, in Bumm-Bumm-Bhole-Land, 2007.

So that I don’t feel left out, Teja found me this. It was flying around on his studio floor.

My crankiness after a 3 hour drive back from town disappeared instantly.
Teja said: “Happy?” 
I said to Teja: “He’s just like you.”
In fact, Teja is a real life Dharamji. No, no, not looks. Lest all my friends gasp at my blindness. But in his sweetness.
Thankfully, minus the excess boozing and womanizing.


  1. Lucky you to have a real-life Dharam Paji in your life (and a fab poster as well)!

    And I dont recognize most of Dhanno’s poster-boys/gals – does that make me really old?

  2. can the poster be photocopied? even a grainy version of the ‘this is heaven’ poster will do for my poor self.
    and dharam without the boozing puffiness, an womaninsing debauchery? just the sweetness and the charm? do i see basanti knocking on the door?

  3. Awww.πŸ™‚

    Also, I feel compelled to state here, in a public forum, and in full support of Dhanno, that… Drake Bell is a hottie.

  4. Bollyviewer, I’m equally flummoxed myself at times. But she keeps me up to date.πŸ™‚ One of the advantages of having a teenager around.

    Sur, will give you the original happily. The poster that is, not the D-ji.

    Sujatha, yes!

    Space Bar, we need real life hugs from you now, not virtual.πŸ˜€

    Shankari, thanks.

    A ppcc representative, Dhanno will like you so much for this.

    Memsaab, you are biased. Hugs to you, too.

    Alankrita, oh yes. I think Dharamji is the best looking man we’ve ever had in the history of Hindi cinema, with the best smile. Period.

  5. Dharamji minus the excess boozing and womanizing? Now you have something that every (Indian) woman wish for! Lucky you!

    Haha @ Dhanno’s poster collection. Sure brings back a lot of memories during my (much much) younger days too!!!
