Some readers found this title image a little distasteful and asked me to take it off. Keeping their sensibilities in mind I’m putting a new one up. Anyway it’s been there for almost a month-and-a-half and the replacement with was long overdue. As Sandeepa said I remain the boss of this blog and things around here happen according to my whims and fancies, but once in a while I should heed to readers’ concerns (or at least pretend to).
The movie is Madhubala, of course not based on the beauty of the yesteryears (I was and am an adorer) but on the Preeti Jain-Madhur Bhandarkar episode. It was running in one of Connaught Place’s (New Delhi) oldest theatres, the landmark Regal, usually described as seedy, in-kempt and exhibiting ‘A’ rated films. Haven’t yet been inside the theatre, but the posters usually attract sufficient attention.
Photographed October 1, 2006.
The description of the present title image will be made available on its retirement.
