Fourth Wall

You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.


It’s strange. In books I like light fiction, but I love those movies which are thrillers, and fast paced like The Pirates of the Carribean, Indiana Jones movies, and The Mummy.

Recent movies which I watched (a few months ago) are The Croods, and Frozen. They are children movies. I don’t think I see myself in those.

I am a lousy actress, so I can’t visualize myself in movies I like.

A few years back, I was asked to portray the Corps Commander’s wife by the Army Ladies Club I had joined. The lady in question was fair complexioned – I was too. She was petite, I was the same. Besides our voices with the Pushto accent sounded the same pitch. I was pressurized to play the part in a comic script. They wanted me, and they didn’t listen to my excuses. They besieged, and cajoled; whatever worked, and I was roped in for the role.

On the day in question, it was hell for me. The stage fright — I wanted to disappear. With me, quaking in my four inch heel, I played the part. Two small tureens, one for tomato soup, and the other one for chicken soup were given to me by the Ladies Club at the end of the show. The tureens have the recipes printed on them. They are a reminder of that acting day in my life.


Funny Moments

Daily Prompt: Roaring Laughter
What was the last thing that gave you a real, authentic, tearful, hearty belly laugh? Why was it so funny?

People have wonderful memories. At the moment when I need to recall a funny book, or a funny movie, my memory goes on the blink. Oh my God! I don’t remember names even.

I liked, “The Pirates of Caribbean”. When Jack Sparrow runs in one segment, the priceless look on his face and the way he runs made me laugh. I liked the Indiana jones movies too. In “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” where his father fears that he is dead, and he and the others are peering down into an abyss, Indiana slowly joins them. Once they realize Indiana is alive, they move leaving him, that was a funny moment.

The Ben Stiller movies are also funny. “Meet the Parents” was hilarious.

I like Jackie Chan movies. They make you laugh.
