My sister and I made a deal: she will sit through a string of Bollywood movies with me if I will watch (and stop myself from criticizing) the Twilight movies with her.  It’s just fair, isn’t it, for I love Shah Rukh Khan as much as she loves Robert Pattinson. “You are the only person in the Philippines who is aware that Shah Rukh Khan exists!” She protested.  “I am not the only one; you do, too!” I said.  “He is ugly,” she retorted.  “So is Edward Cullen.” I insisted. And so goes our conversation.

My fascination with the Badshah of Bollywood, who also goes by the name SRK, started when I first watched him in a movie, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, recommended by one of my blogger friends. After several movies, I became a certified fan.  It was such a delight to see his face in newspapers and on billboards all over different cities in India.

Come to think of it, I am SRK's number one fan in the Philippines because I may be the only one.

So funny, I love SRK. I saw Kuch Kuch Hota Hai a long time ago, and I just saw Baazigar last week (via youtube of course) and it's a good one. Have you seen a Telugu movie yet? There's this guy I like Allu Arjun. He's fun to watch in his movie Aarya.
