Simi Garewal is an extremely gracious host who makes actors feel totally comfortable. She anchored the talk show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, which ruled TV chat shows for ten years.
She made a comeback this year with ‘Simi Selects India’s Most Desirable” on Star World which is being avidly watched and talked about! What has caught every one by surprise is its novelty factor. Everyone is discussing how diametrically different it is from Rendezvous with Simi Garewal and it boasts of single eligible desirable guests like Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Abhay Deol and Siddarth Mallaya.
This week’s guest is Anushka Sharma who debuted in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi opposite Shahrukh Khan. She mentioned that she was reading the book called “The Secret” when she auditioned for the film. Anushka says, “What happened is I used to listen to this thing when the movie starts there is this logo of Yashraj comes so I used to keep watching it again and again. It was like aaaa (sings) so when the film started and that logo played first and I was like wow… it actually happened. Shahrukh Shan introducing Anushka. She adds, “There was this one time when I was in Bombay and when this film happened and when I was driving back from Yashraj studios, I got the news Adi told me.
I couldn’t drive any more because I was crying so I stopped the car and pulled over and I called my mother and you know I told her that I got this film and you know what my mother told me. That there was this turtle that used to be there in my room I think its some Feng Shui thing you open the turtle and you put a wish in the turtle. And when it comes true you take it out.
So she never told me about this. But when she came down after I got the film she opened that and she showed it to me and she had written it there that I hope that my daughter stars in a Yashraj film. I swear. It’s unbelievable, I think somewhere she always wanted me to be an actress”. Well all those girls who want to make it big in career can follow “The Secret”. TOI
