Chhota Shakeel: Aur Kya hal chal hai?
Sunjay Dutt: Bas, First class Bhai

I must have read these two lines at last a dozen times in that whole transcript of the conversation between the underworld Don and the Bombay film star. Shows you how unimaginative people can be. I mean why ask each other after every few moments, and then answer "first class bhai", as if the bhai is a booking clerk at a railway reservation counter.

It is extremely hilarious, the way they refer to Salman Khan as 'nanga' throughout the conversation, indicating his propensity to get rid of his shirt at the slightest excuse ( Salman Khan is mentioned in the 1999 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records as the only filmstar to have shot for a song in the Swiss alps without his shirt). They also keep calling Hrithik Roshan 'chikna' and say that he won't be around much longer. It also shows that Sunju is not Govinda's biggest fan.

The tapes are also available in real media format.

I am watching Humraaz from the insti network today. Seems like a typical Abbas Mastaan movie. And Suku has already told me that La Patel kills Akshaye in the end. She has also told me the ending of 'Kaantey' (she was told the ending by Sanjay Gupta, the film's director who also features in the aforementioned tapes). Very considerate isn't she?
