At last count, the celebrated artist had seen her film Band Baaja Baaraat eight times and was looking forward to several more repeat viewings.
He has been claiming that ever since he saw Anushka, his vision has improved!
On New Year’s Day, Husain watched the film with his close pal, Mumbai-based businessman Munna Javeri, who was visitng him in Dubai.
“In the cinema hall I was shocked to seen him remove his glasses,” says Javeri. “He knew all the dialogues and he viewed the film like a painting filled with colours. If only he had a brush in hand “
Speaking from Dubai, Husain says, “It’s still running to packed halls in its fourth week. Anushka was okay in the Shah Rukh starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, but in Band Baaja Baaraat she has proved what an intelligent actor she is. She knows what subtle acting is all about. Even Ranveer Singh is good.”
