India's finest back from Mauritius?
True, I may have started working as a teacher, but that doesn't mean I forgot all about my dream interview with none other than Shabana-ji. Quite the contrary.
When I called her Mumbai office last month I was told that Mrs Azmi (57) was in Mauritius doing some film shoot.
Since she was supposed to have returned to India today, yours truly contacted her office again today ... by email.
So do keep them fingers crossed that she is still willing to talk to me about a variety of topics, from Muslim fundamentalism to the future of mainstream Indian cinema and everything that lies in between, such as gender issues and racism.
