Disclaimer: Masala news ahead, and dont get fooled by the title.. this isnt a sermon. Thus spake Swami Pavanananda.
Udit Narayan accepts he had a wife before he married the ‘known-to-society-walee’ wife. She, being his second wife, reacted by saying that she has no problems with his first wife. Something to top it? Here it is: Quoting from the same source: She insisted that she had full knowledge of Udit’s first wife Ranjana before marrying him in 1982. Awwww, how cute!
Nagma, the South Indian actress, has been accepted by a Bhojpuri hero as his lover (and yes, he is married). Here is Sakshi’s take on this story. Quoting his wife’s reaction to Nagma’s affair with her husband (from the article):
My friends and family are aware of my relationship with Nagma. My wife has accepted Nagma as a beautiful part of my life. I don’t lie to my wife about her. She’s gracious enough to accept that there can be a special relationship between a man and woman outside marriage. I’m not the first nor the last married man to have an intimate relationship with another woman?,” he says.
My wife has full faith in me. And I’d never let her down. In fact she encourages me to sign films with Nagma. ‘Your friendship shows in your work,’ she says. My wife doesn’t think of Nagma as a home-breaker.”
It has been known to society that some people have/had chinna veedu/illu (or outhouse or lantern or petromax..). So, is polygamy back in fashion?
And see the attitude of both the guys, note the difference. Udit came out of the closet forcefully,
whereas the Bhojpuri guy came out willingly (not that his extra-marital affair is commendable).
But wow! Women in India are so forgiving!
In unrelated news, I read that Indian banks are against.. now pay attention to this.. they are ”..against outsourcing of services, affecting the operations in these banks across the country..” Is it funny, sad or OMG material? You decide.
Conan’s take on India: He said that if Manmohan Singh would be US visiting Bush.. after the talks, Bush would say to him: “.. and now that you are here, could you please see why my computer has been acting up?“
