What could make for a better start to the weekend than to step into a restaurant and find Nitin sitting on the first table. Sudden excitement was hard to control. I bugged the other ten people at my table about how I’m a HUGE fan of his, but just couldn’t get the courage to go up to him to say the same. Friends suggested that they’ll do it if I don’t, but I didn’t want them to steal my thunder either. I kept turning my head in his direction but it was almost impossible to make myself get up.
He was with two other people, one woman and another guy who was shooting them on a professional camera. After about half hour of not doing anything, I saw that same woman come up to our table and ask if it was ok if they covered some footage of us. I thought maybe I should ask her but for some reason I was nervous and my voice did not reach her even though she was standing right next to me. I still managed to confirm if it really was him at the table. There interfered my dear friend AVANTIKA KAPOOR (who later insisted her name should come on my blog in caps) and told that woman that I’m Nitin’s biggest fan!!!! 😀 😀
So the lady just waved to him and said that he has a fan here. THEN I walked up to him, said a nice hello, told him how crazy I am about him, how I love his voice, and so on. God I’m sure I looked completely smitten!! Also reminded him of the post that I’d written on his birthday and how he had made my day by leaving a comment on it later. It did not take much effort, he seemed to clearly remember my blog. And the man looked unbelievably down to earth. He kept saying ‘god bless’ just the way he does on radio, and I ended up telling him that I love the way he says those words too. Tch tch! He smiled graciously throughout. Such a sweetheart, man!!
Yeah, I acted kinda dumb but I love that guy!!! I am SOOO happy to have met him. :)) :)) :))
On the other hand, I am apparently interacting with the COO of Radio Today (MEOW FM) on this post of mine. Fun (and weird) stuff!
And nothing much beyond this as of now. Enough for now rather. 🙂
