After attending the Screen Awards 2014 and having a blast, our reporter used his press pass to slyly sneak on to the red carpet. Eager to needle celebrities into saying something controversial, he hobnobbed with many who were present after the event got over. First, he decided to congratulate Amitabh Bachchan on the Lifetime Achievement Award that he had won earlier in the day.
Amitabh Bachchan was, of course, referring to the incident where Rekha apparently touched Jaya’s feet when she walked into the Screen Awards, something that’s bound to make news for several days, along with Deepika Padukone’s relationship status and Salman Khan’s new dog’s son’s name. The reporter sees a quaint figure and, unable to believe his eyes, rushes towards it.
Still in shock about how radically pure English could transform a pick-up line, our reporter saw his favourite comedian on the other side of the red carpet and sauntered over, trying not to look too much like a crazy fanboy.
Clutching his sides, the reporter saw another favourite surrounded by people. Flashing his press pass self-importantly, he pushed the crowds away and stood next to one of the most talked-about men in India today.
Trying to work out this logic, the reporter unexpectedly saw another childhood favourite. Images of rabbits jumping out of hats and people being sawed into two flashed before his eyes, and he ran over.
Was it a bird? Was it a plane? No…it was the best superhero of all time! (Batman, we hope you aren’t reading.)
Seeing a stunning figure in golden, our reporter walked over, mesmerised.
What a joy it was to be on the red carpet. Celebrities, celebrities everywhere!
All jokes apart, the Screen Awards 2014 saw Bollywood at its mesmerizing best. We hope you liked our review; we’ll be back with plenty more Off Screen Awards in 365 days.
