Happy Day Off to Me!

Somebody (i.e. me) partied a little too hardy at her birthday party last night and so I'm taking the day off from posting today but I wanted to pop in and thank everybody for their wonderful messages. I was really overwhelmed. I started this blog as an outlet for my ramblings about Indian film but have kept it up because of encouragement from all of you. Nobody blogs in a vacuum - or if they do, they're doing it wrong - and everybody reading this is just as much a part of this blog as I am.

I don't talk much about myself on here, mostly because you would find it VERY uninteresting but today I will share that there have been times when I was feeling very low and very alone but knowing that there so many wonderful people out in the world who have reached out to me has really been a comfort. I honestly couldn't tell you why I became so emotionally involved in popular Indian film, except that the pure joy that I can take while watching a particularly good masala film is a feeling I've never been able to duplicate in any other pop culture experience. Good masala is my heroine... to steal a pun from Force.

Anyways, in lieu of gossip today, I wanted to share with you my special birthday tweets - including some great Pakistani birthday songs - and a very, very special tweet from a certain favorite actor of mine...

Amita said...

Happy Birthday! Have been a silent reader for long. Yours is the first page I visit every morning. Love it.

Happy Belated Birthday, Filmi Girl!! As one of your tweeters suggested, you should celebrate it all week to give a chance for stragglers like me to give you their wishes, too. :) I'm so happy that you got birthday wishes from Arshad Warsi and Hard Kaur. Next year I hope it will be Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, too!

I can't give you a present online, so let me tell you that yours is the best Bollywood blog on the net -- and I have checked them all out. I especially like it because you bring the non-desi perspective without any condescension or preconceived notions. Even when I disagree with you, I always respect your point of view, because I know it's genuine.

Have a great year!

Happy Belated Birthday Filmi Girl, here's to many more glorious years ahead, hope you had a fab one.....xx

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.

xoxo Filmi Girl
