The conversation literally looks like it has been ripped out of a comic journal! Check it out...
Renuka Shahane's Facebook posts are always entertaining. As we know her very well for being the sweet bhabhi to Salman Khan in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, we also know her for a number of TV serials she has been a part of. However, looks like someone definitely didn't know much about the actress before choosing to interview her. In her recent Facebook post, Shahane shared this experience she had while being interviewed with an amateur journalist. Well, the journo got a lot of things wrong about her but she sure held her patience and didn't snap back. Instead, she let the conversation go on as she herself was amused!

J: Ma’am we would like to ‘do’ your interview for a column about veteran tv actors.
J: So apart from Surabhi which I remember you’ve done Swabhimaan right?
Me: Many serials but not Swabhimaan
J: Oh no no it was Shanti right? It was very popular….
Me: It sure was but I wasn’t in it?
J (sounding utterly gobsmacked): Er….then what were you in? Please tell me names of your serials?
Me: Why didn’t you do your homework?
J: Please ma’am help me now…I will do it from next time….only a few questions
J: What is the difference between the serials you did & the serials today?
Me: Serials I acted in were weeklies.
Me ( patiently): We have daily soaps now…they are called dailies because they are shown daily. My Serials were called Weeklies because they were shown once a week.
J: Oh so only once a week? You mean one story for one week?
Me: No….how do I explain this? You have daily newspapers, weekly magazines, fortnightly ones & monthly ones…..some are printed quarterly? Right?
J: Oh so you had a lot of variety like Weeklies & Fortnightly.
Me: No no….I mean we had variety….but I was just drawing an analogy so that you could relate it to your work.
Me: Are you there?
J: Yes ma’am….I thought you were drawing something so I waited.
Me: Hmmmm, are you writing anything down at all?
J: Ma’am I’ve got an excellent memory…..you’ve acted in Surabhi….and you’ve acted in Shanti which was a weekly & you acted in a variety of Fortnightly & quarterly Serials too ma’am.
Me (trying to hold back the mirth): You’re amazing….you’ve got it spot on….now may I please go back to er….drawing analogies?
J: Sure ma’am….if you Whatsapp me the photo of the drawing of the “allergy” I can include it as your hobby….it’s a very unique concept.
Sigh….some journalists are a source of great entertainment…..the upside is that I’ve bought myself a canvas….still not been able to draw my “allergy” though.
Wow! The journo sure got away easy! Don't you think? We've gotta salute the actress though, for her level of patience! What are your thoughts? Tell us in the comments section below! And stay tuned to this space for more gossips and latest updates!
