Anyway, I soon discovered that I was not alone in enjoying this combination. In the words of my friend, "Their combined charm is the flame to which I am drawn as a helpless, flappy moth." Soon much of my timeline was abuzz with submissions for a collection. Here are the best results.
It's surprisingly difficult to find filmi actors with both glasses AND exposed flesh above the elbow. Perhaps there is some kind of immutable law of nature that cannot be tampered with. I call this image "Damn you, sleeves!"
Sunglasses and biceps are much easier to find (and sadly do not qualify for this particular project).
|One for Temple, one for me.|
But we filmi fans are nothing if not diligent, and our group efforts yielded the following, starting with the usual suspects.
|Actually, Emraan Hashmi is not at all a personal favorite of mine, and I think his hair looks terrible here, but I dig the stubble and most importantly his picture fit into this collage nicely.|
|Salman gets two pictures because, hey, even I have some respect for the fact that he is Salman Khan.|
And because there had to be some howlers.
|Close but no cigar, Govinda.|
Update to post (June 19, 2012): Here are the first 12 hours of photos that have been submitted or found since the post went up yesterday. Most of these are totally predictable candidates, and thank heavens for it.
|That's Siddharth, Ajith, Aamir Khan, and Abir Chatterjee (HELLO BENGALI CINEMA, THIS IS YOUR POST!)|
Update to post (July 25, 2012): Bengali cinema comes through. Here's a selection from Satyajit Ray's Chiriyakhana.
