This morning, I was chatting with my project mates when the topic of Shah-Rukh Khan’s latest film, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” came up. This is how the conversation went :-
Colleague 1 : Trailor gives away the entire movie. Shah Rukh is looking old now.
Colleague 2 : Haan…buddha ho gaya hai.
Me : Of course!! He’s nearly touching 50 now.
Colleague 1 : But so is Salman. But he doesn’t look that old.
Me : Thats because he doesn’t have any responsibilities. He doesn’t have a wife or kids.
Colleague 2 : But Aamir Khan has two wives!! AND children. But he still looks young!
Me : Correction. Aamir Khan has just one current wife. He was divorced from his first one.
Colleague 2 : But you forget, Aamir has three children!!
Me : I agree…but….
Colleague 1 : Hmmm…so the secret is this. If you want to look young, you either don’t marry or if you do, make sure you marry many times.
Colleague 2 : I agree…..the more a man marries, the younger he becomes.
Colleague 1 : Sahi hai yaar….ek wife aadmi ko buddha kar deti hai!!
At this point, the guys guffaw loudly and high-five each other, whereas I can only stare on in shock!!
Seriously, when will guys grow up??
