Basically what happened was the interviewer had asked me to come along as her camera assistant while Ranbir Kapoor is in London promoting Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani at the Eros London office and that’s how I got to meet him. There are reasonable explanations behind all of my photos with Bollywood stars haha, it looks like I’m running around with them all over London but there are just a lot of opportunities to be around Bollywood people in this awesome city of mine, that’s kinda how I got into it in the first place I guess!
So I was getting ready to go watch some Ben Stiller movie with my friend when I saw on the Facebook Barfi! page that Ranbir Kapoor was going to be appearing at a cinema about 20 miles away from where I live, so I begged my friend who doesn’t know anything about Bollywood to drive up there and she was awesome and agreed. Waited by the red carpet, along comes Ranbir Kapoor, signing autographs and taking pictures, he looked at me so I reached out for a handshake and BOOM I’M SHAKING HANDS WITH RANBIR KAPOOR! It’s the 8th second of the video, I forgot all about the hand holding the iPhone and focused all my energy on the handshake hand so the camera kinda goes crazy for a couple of seconds :-P And it was a good handshake!! What an awesome day :-D
