Tum Jane, main Jane-man

This photo was taken over the weekend at the theatre where I watched Dor (I'd written about it here).

As you might have guessed, knowledgeable reader, this should have been Jaan-e-mann, Shirish Kunder's debut directorial effort (Shirish Kunder who? Farah Khan's husband. Farah Khan who? Well, never mind).

Jane-man, on the other hand, sounds just right for a metrosexual 21st century version of Tarzan - ironically, both Salman and Akshay (who're acting in the original) could fit the bill for a buff, Indian "Jane-man". Screenplay writers must be salivating at the prospect of writing killer dialogues like "Tum Jane, Main Jane-man" accompanied by chest thumping (bare-chested in the case of Salman) and war-cries.

Once released, ex-Tarzans (like Dara Singh and Hemant Birje) will rue the fact that they were born too early and never got to play a cool metro role like Jane-man. Tough luck, dudes.
