Just landed in Kolkata after a super time in Bangalore.
The 3i team is travelling to a number of cities to interact with audiences across the country. Bangalore was the first stop and we had such a lovely time there. The entire team joins me in thanking Bangalore, and all of you who were there at the mall, to give us so much love and affection. It was really overwhelming. Thank you.
The sad note in our happiness was the untimely demise the next day of super star Vishnuvardhan. Mr Vishnuvardhan who is a huge star in Karnataka and has had a prolific career was only 59. Our condolences to his family, to all those who love him, and to all of Karnatka for whom he is such an icon. May his soul rest in peace.
We have now reached Kolkatta and we are all looking forward to meeting our audience here. Kolkata has always been a place I have loved and I am very happy to be back.
One word of caution to all those who come to meet and see us at the venue, please be careful not to hurt yourselves. I always worry that some kid will get trampled in the chaos. There are ladies, girls, kids and elderly people in the crowd, and I would not ever like it to become a mob situation or a stampede where someone gets hurt. I know that everyone gets excited and we love that, but in all the excitement I donít want anyone to get hurt. Please be rest assured that we have come to see you, and are there for you, and please be relaxed about it.
Today of course is the last day of the year, itís been a very good year for me and I am very grateful for that. I want to thank each and every one of you for the wonderful things that you have said about the film. Raju, Vinod and the entire team have been reading my blog and are very moved, and join me in thanking you. My sincere good wishes to all of us for a great new year ahead. Have a blast.
Lots of love.
