It was Tabu’s birthday yesterday, so happy birthday!

The web was flooded with wishing-well graphics and trivia posts of some of the same-old same-old trivia bits. The best one was Jitesh Pillai [1][2] who shared some photos of the new issue of Filmfare Magazine– Tabu has a couple of pages in a shoot by Vivek Bhatia [Facebook], there doesn’t seem to be an interview, just a photoshoot of four shots with short texts.

I don’t know why I was under the impression that Vivek Bhatia was in charge of the photoshoot. Correction: these photos were by Abhay Singh.

She gets up with the morning’s prayer on her lips… and the night’s pleasure in her eyes.

Is that suggestive or is that suggestive?

And the cherry on top? The Filmfare issue also includes a short 10-trivia article on Vidya Balan with photos by Rohan Shrestha [used here][and here]. However, it doesn’t seem to be connected to this mysterious photoshoot that I loved so much. My favorite bit about that?

If there are no subtitles in an English film, then I don’t enjoy watching it. The actors speak so softly that I can’t understand the dialogue. I hate to miss even a single word.

There’s so many mumblers, nowadays. I do watch everything with subtitles— English, Spanish, French, Portuguese… in that order, and if there’s none available in those, I’ll try to wing it in Chinese.

– Master, I wanted to see someone, but couldn’t.
– Have you not seen him in your heart?

That is all, Toni~

Since I’ve met you and moved to Sydney… I haven’t listened to one ABBA song. It’s because now my life’s as good as an ABBA song. It’s as good as Dancing Queen.

Todo lo que se diga de mí es mentira, no soy Doña Diabla, ni una mujer sin alma, ni mucho menos China Poblana que se queda con lo que no es suyo. Con la imagen que el público tenía de mí, no hubiera podido vivir, me conformaba con que dijeran que soy la mujer más bella del mundo, salí de El Peñón de las Ánimas y llegué a París como La Bella Otero, he sido una eterna enamorada, pero no soy una diosa arrodillada. He sido La Generala de mi pueblo en Sonora, así como Doña Bárbara, La Mujer de Todos, me conocieron como La Devoradora porque todos eran los ambiciosos que querían a la Maclovia de Pátzcuaro.

Everything that’s been said about me is a lie, I’m not Doña Diabla nor the Woman Without a Soul, much less a China Poblana that keeps what’s not hers. With the image the audience had of me, I wouldn’t have been able to live, I settled for them saying I was the most beautiful woman in the world. I came out of The Rock of Souls and made it to Paris as La Belle Otero, I’ve been A Woman in Love, but I’m not The Kneeling Goddess. I’ve been La Generala of my hometown in Sonora, just like I was Doña Barbara, One Woman for All. They knew me as La Devoradora because everyone else were the overambitious that wanted the Maclovia from Patzcuaro.

Buongiorno, Principessa! Stanotte t’ho sognata tutta la notte, andavamo al cinema, e avevi quel tailleur rosa che ti piace tanto, non penso che a te principessa, penso sempre a te!

-I just realized… the English quote is so weirdly translated.

Buongiorno, Principessa!
