Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was at a Children’s Day function in Panaji yesterday, and he thought the best story to tell in this occasion will be that of the time he watched an “adult movie” in his youth and got busted. CM Parrikar was interacting with school students here (ahem-ahem) when a kid asked him about the kind of movies he watched as a student. And then fell the bomb.
“We would not just watch movies, we have also watched adult movies of that era,” said Parrikar. “You are seeing more things on TV now than what was shown on adult movies back then.”
Parrikar went on to tell a funny story about the time he got busted while watching an adult movie: “There was a popular (adult) movie. I was an adult at that time. My brother and I had gone to watch it. During interval, when the lights came on, I realised that my neighbour was sitting next to me. This neighbour used to chat with my mother every evening. I told myself, we are dead,” said Parrikar.
Like any other sane kid in India, Parrikar and his brother, Avdhoot, ran away from the movie hall hoping to save their lives. And of course, on the way, they came up with a foolproof plan to save their behinds.
“When we reached home, I told my mother we had gone for a movie and that we did not know the movie was vulgar… We left it (movie) mid-way. And very casually I told her, that our neighbour was also there and kept quiet,” Parrikar narrated.
“The next day, the neighbour excitedly called my mother to tell her that Manohar and Avdhoot had gone for an (adult) movie. My mother told him, “I know which movie they went for, but why did you go for the movie?”
“You have to pre-empt certain things,” Parrikar explained.Doesn’t Parrikar’s story have an uncanny similarity to the first couple of scenes from Anurag Kashyap’s movie, Udaan? Things ended on a much better note for him and his brother, unlike in the movie.
