THINGS LIKE THIS DON'T HAPPEN EVERYDAY -
It was just another normal autumn morning. I entered the bus to work. The bus was nearly full. I headed towards the only empty seat at the rear side of the bus. A gentleman was sat on the window side of the seat who moved aside to make place for me to sit. I sat by his side and then looked at him to just smile and thank him.....and OMG!! What do I see???? The gentleman was none other than ARJUN RAMPAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was gobsmacked!!! I coudnt believe my eyes...jsut kept looking at him...wondering if it was really Arjun Rampal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ....OMG !! OMG!!!! It was indeed AR!!!!! What a morning!! Once in a lifetime kind of thing.......
ME: uh..He..hello ...Are you...uh...uh...emm.... Arjun Ra..uh...ampal?
AR: ( smiling) yes I am , Thank you for recognising .
Me: ?????????? ...uh..uh......no one who watches bollywood movies will have difficulty in recognising you. Are you really Arjun Rampal??
[ foolish question, I know....but I still could not believe I was sat next to Arjun Rampal...one of the best looking Indian man...OMG!!]
AR: :)...:).....why don't you believe ?
Me: ......eh......not usually celebrities travel by bus like this.....
AR: why not? are we not normal human beings?
Me: certainly you are normal...but ...er..em....
AR: What's your good name?
Me: I am Always Happy
AR: I am AR. (Shakes hands with me)..Glad to meet you.
Me: Shakes hands with AR
(trembling...still couldn't believe my eyes....at the same time thanking God for this day....for the first time in 5 years I felt good about living in England...cant imagine sitting next to Arjun Rampal in a bus in India.....AR would have been surrounded by millions of fans by now if it was India...AR would not have spoken to me like this....thank u God...thank you)
Me: Where are you going, if I may ask?
AR: Just going to Leicester Square to meet an old friend
Me: Ah..I c. Are you shooting for a film?
AR: Na, I am here on a short holiday.
Me: I see.
Silence.....(I was not sure what to speak. AR is more handsome off screen than on screen.....)
I asked for AR's autograph and then got one of the co passengers to click a photo of me with AR on my mobile phone camera. I wouldn't miss this opportunity for anything.....such things don't happen everyday.
It's 06:45AM Thursday 21 October 2010......Time to get ready to go to the daily grind......oh well!!

Arjun Rampal enters the bus and finds only one seat free in the back of the bus...he looks at his fellow passenger and his jaw drops, "Oh my God! Are you really Always Happy??"...
