Forget Sheila! There Are Many More Jawani Deewanis!
November 22, 2010 @ 00:00 am
EVERYONE and their grandmothers have heard 'Sheila ki jawani' by now. In fact, the grandmothers have heard the song more carefully, since they are the only ones who have that name these days (a big shout out to Sheila Dixit!). Which begs the que
Interval in the article for joke on Katrina Kaif: Katrina Kaif in Sheila Ki Jawani is like a mannequin dancing. She has the perfect mannequin body... but then again, she also has the mannequin face! When you hear the song and see Katrina’s bod, you go, 'Woah, Jawani!’ (yes, YOU go… we’ve heard you! Don’t lie now!). But then you see Katrina’s face and you go, 'Wait, THIS is Sheila?’ We think Katrina’s too pretty to carry off her own body. Yes, we say intelligent things like that sometimes.
Interval over, back to article: So keeping all the constraints in mind, here are the grandmothers whose jawanis need to be sung about:
1. Baa ki jawani: Remember Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Baa-hua karti thi? Remember Baa? The superwoman, whose age at the end of 10 generation leaps, would have been some 250 years, but who STILL didn’t have grey hair? That’s the kind of jawani we’re talking about! And can’t you totally imagine Baa shaking it at one of the various family functions/Diwali special/New Year special/extra marital affair special/funeral special/generation leap special?
2. Shobhaa ki jawani: She may be as old as independent India, but Shobhaa De keeps her spirit (and mind) totally young. That’s a cryptic sentence to say that she has written about many dirty things (that make aunties her age go 'hawww’). Three cheers (and three x’s) for Shobhaa ki jawani of mind!
3. Pratibha ki jawani: Pratibha Patil may look 200 years old, yes, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be a badass! Apart from being the first woman President of India, she also holds the record for being the oldest woman. No wait, that doesn’t sound right. … Oh yeah, she holds the record for being the oldest woman… TO fly in a combat jet at a speed close to supersonic speed. Can YOUR grandma do that? CAN SHE?
4. Rekha ki jawani: Call it botox, or call it yoga. Okay let’s call it yoga… to avoid lawsuits. No one may know the REAL secret of Rekha ki jawani (it’s yoga), but whatever it is (it’s yoga), it sure has helped Rekha maintain her skin, face, skin, body, skin, and everything else on her face, body and skin (it’s yoga). It’s got to be yoga, right? (It’s yoga)
What do you guys think? Katrina’s jawani? Or Baa’s? Or are there any other grandmas that you dream of that we’ve forgotten? (That’s very disturbing on your part, by the way)
