An Unparalleled Experience with TAMANNAAH
Heaven is said to be a cosmological and transcendent place where beings such as angels, gods and saints are said to originate, be enthroned, or live. Heavenly beings can descend to earth and earthly beings can ascend to Heaven in the afterlife, or in exceptional cases enter Heaven alive. On the 31st of July 2018, I have had the exceptional & rarest of the rarest opportunity to go to heaven alive, see, meet, talk and have dinner with the heaven’s most cherubic angel.
Until then, I never ever believed in the phenomena of other-world but in 48 hours after seeing and meeting a woman, I deeply understood, analyzed, felt and started to believe that heaven and hell aren’t other-world but are right in this world, heaven being the most pure, holy, divine, beautiful & comfortable place and hell being the most normal, dirty, cunning and brutal place. If the place where the angel is living is the former, the normal world where I and normal people like me live is the latter.
The mere imagination of an angel living in paradise has become a real visual before the retina of my eye. Apart from expressing some great achievements, I never felt the adjectives like better and best in my life’s happenings yet with the opinion that better and best shall be even better. But I can state firmly that the day I met Tamannaah is the best in my life till now in terms of experience & emotion.
Due to my goal-oriented life-style or say due to my shyness, excusing my tiny world, I never got the opportunity to talk to people up-close and understand them inside out though I have an idea what one could be after a professional discussion. After a three hour pure professional discussion, I got a strong feeling that she is the loveliest, sharpest, wittiest, wisest and the most impactful human being I have seen in my life, her achievements and reputation perfectly consolidate how much of a pure soul she is.
Having met and narrated stories to her contemporary stars in the recent past, I expected the meeting & narration to be just one other routine where the star listens to you with a serene mindset and you have to be at your intense best. But from the moment the door opened after I pressed the calling bell, I felt extra-special as I was received inside with the most grounded and heart-warming welcome ever. I was asked to enter with my shoes on while I was unsettling them. I raised my head up and put my leg inside to see the angel in the paradise walking forward to greet & welcome me. With a real, genuine feeling of happiness I put my hand forward to shake hands indicating the beginning of a professional discussion. Being the epitome of professionalism in the stream of acting which I have been mentioning to people around me from years, she shook the hand better than any professional. Her pet ‘Pebbles’ has become curious to know who I am and why I am there; their mutual love & conversations are starting to strengthen my opinion that she is an extra-special woman. The hospitality that is being displayed by her and her family is the best in this world. I say the best in the world as it has a subtle logic behind it: Amongst the various hospitalities across the planet, Indian hospitality is unparalleled. Indians are emotional even in hosting a guest and consider guests to be godly. I fairly have was a guest at several people’s homes, friends, relatives, colleagues, strangers and celebrities. The quality of hospitality is expected to be in the descending order in the fore-mentioned list for a normal common-man like me but in this case it has been the best one could ever experience and I can strongly say that she has the best hospitality on this earth right now. I still needed time to digest what I am experiencing and so I just decided to jump into the core point of the meeting, the narration. To my utmost joy, she was so ready and curious to know the story as much as I am to tell her. I was able to clearly see her hunger for success, desire to perform and the penchant to entertain in her soulful eyes as she was listening to the story with no mind but just listening which is so damn rare and almost impossible. Several special, delicious and cute-looking dishes are arriving on the table. I did not taste even one as I did not want to look clumsy in any way before possibly the most beautiful woman. Tharun Kumar had the opportunity to taste the dishes which were made in heaven. She reaffirmed the belief in the story by conveying that she had called us right-away as the plot sounds something very promising which made my narration a smooth-flow. At the mid-point of the meeting I took a 2-minute break to come back and understand what exactly is happening. I analyzed that her presence is very real and can be felt sharply. Her reactions are very genuine and very simple but impactful than anybody else I have seen till date. I started to feel what she is as a person. I spoke to her soul which is real like that of a baby without the intervention of mind and ideology. We meet lot of people every day and we don’t get a sense of what they are. Even if we get a sense, we rarely come across people who are as pure as the full moon. She is purer than full moon and brighter than hot sun. She has gone into the kitchen and came back with two cups of ‘Chai’ with her own divine hands. I wondered how fortunate I am to be hosted by the angel in her paradise. I sipped twice and we are back into the second half of the narration. She spoke out in Telugu to know more and asked me to speak in pure Telugu. Pebbles seemed to like me and he was walking around me as I was narrating looking to me with a sense of thought & understanding that I have too much respect for his angelic sister. I looked at him with the corner of my eye and smiled at him for his keenness. As we reach the pre-climax, the character in the story is at its peak so is my wilful thought to make this project only with her at any cost as I concluded the story. She has seen the modern world 50 times of what I have seen but she has listened to my narration 50 times more focused than her other contemporaries. Even stronger did I feel that the energy & hunger in her haven’t been explored by any Director. I expressed to her that I have been consistently telling Tharun that on the silver-screen, Tamannaah needs to be shown as an angel down to earth from heaven and when S.S.Rajamouli Sir has portrayed her on the same lines in a song in ‘Baahubali’, my belief in my thought-process even strengthened. She had a subtle smile on her face which had zero arrogance or self-esteem but complete simplicity. The mother who had given birth to a fairy-angel insisted to have dinner when we are about to leave. I didn’t want to trouble them but when she herself insisted, I just couldn’t say ‘no’. I get even more fortunate to be served dinner by the angel herself with her divine hands. Her diet explains her discipline, ideology and professionalism. I asked her if we could capture the moment, she was as excited as I am.
Tamannaah’s thought-process is very simple – simple & clear. She knows what the real world is, though she has seen the world in its best shape most of her life. Her thoughts, deeds & intentions are grounded and honest. Unlike most of her contemporaries who landed in the industry of cinema accidentally or by minimal effort, Tamannaah has stepped in with an iron-will and distant vision. When she told me, at the age of 3, she decided to be in the Entertainment Industry and at the age of 14, when she met a reputed Director and he asked what she wants to become, she was straight & clear saying ’Heroine’, I could only feel inspired & determined than ever. Her very wise Father predominantly guided her and stood by her in this dangerous world, salutes to you Sir. She offered a dessert post the delicious dinner and I again I couldn’t say ‘no’ to her though I am worried that I would put up weight. No wonder you should understand that the ice-cream was delicious than ever. And sadly, we reached the climax, I stood up to leave. And like icing on the cake, as we walk forward, she reminds herself that we thought of capturing the moment and we captured. What she has displayed is the real beauty in a human being. Wonderfully, an extra-ordinarily externally beautiful woman is more than extra-ordinarily beautiful from the inside of her heart. I was in the elevator and she bid at a goodbye standing at the door. That was the greatest goodbye I ever told. The elevator was going down in slow-motion in my eyes as it was unbelievable that I am going back to hell from heaven.
All through the night and even later, I have been replaying the moments of meeting her, narrating the story to her above all and having a professional dinner with her. The emotion is just brilliant for the faith she has expressed in me and the story. I feel that Tamannaah is very innocent by mind; she is intelligent but very fair by thought & deed, sensitive by heart and strong by mind. Her mind & soul are more beautiful than her matchless visible beauty. I started to believe that she is not from planet earth. How can an earthly creature be so good! She has a beautiful heart, bewitching simplicity, sparkling eyes, resplendently sharp nose, rosy lips, divine presence and radiant mind that are sculpted by God himself in his Zenith.
I am strongly taking a resolution to myself that if the film takes off as per the plan, I shall give more than my best in ensuring that she gets the biggest hit in this genre and show the world what exactly she is. Looking forward!
