These were some of the interesting quotes I received on my mobile and I felt I should share it with my extended family. My mobile attracts other things as well and not just good visual photography.
The disturbing news was a death threat that came on my mobile. It stated as follows -
‘Mhanayk. Mare jaoge.only 3. de jinda.rhane ki kimt abhitabh.ji.25.cro.’
Translated it reads – mahanayak, is a word used to describe a great actor, you will be killed. price for remaining alive for 3 days 25 crores.
I received this on my mobile while I was in London, but since I was traveling the same day, I asked my office to inform the police.
Investigations began immediately and the person was traced and as per the police information proceedings have been initiated. The police authority in charge of the matter informs me that he is a person from a city in Rajasthan. Claims to be a look alike of Abhishek, had been around the sets of ‘Drona’ when it was being shot in Rajasthan, has been making claims that he worked in a small role in the film which when I verified is false. Neither Abhshek or Goldie the director have met or had any contact with him. This guy states that he has been in touch with our family; this is completely false. We have never met him. He claims to have got a response to a birthday greeting he sent me. I try and respond to fan mail that wishes me. The police told me he came to Mumbai at the time of Abhishek’s and Aishwarya’s wedding and that a leading tabloid allegedly paid or employed him to pose as Abhishek and set up circumstances or a sting, as these episodes are commonly referred to these days, so that he could find entry to Aishwarya’s residence, just before the wedding. He succeeded in reaching inside the premises of the apartment building and even went up to her flat, unfortunately for him and fortunate for Aishwarya, the wrong one, before he was apprehended. That particular tabloid covered the whole incident as did the electronic media.
I have no further information on the situation as of today.
I must compliment the police force of Maharashtra for having worked so rapidly in getting to the problem and taking suitable action.
Such is life.
My love as ever -
