This is TV season after all. So we, the machi TV group, are coming up with some innovative ideas to forge ahead. Here is a sample.
Rediff has a very funny section called ‘Spotted‘, where in readers send photographs of celebrities. Like some lady ‘Sweetie(!!)’ spotted Sushmita Sen buying Bedsheets(Duh!), and came to a conclusion that ‘Sushmita is very simple and elegant’. Ahem! Not to be left behind, we will also spot imaginary things. And since this is a niche area, we are coming up with an all new program called ‘Machinichi flash’.
1. Blade Pakkiri in a barber shop.
Reader Sundaresan spotted Blade Pakkiri in a barber shop in chennai. Mr Pakkiri was one of the extras in the blockbuster ‘Veerasamy’. When Vijaya T.Rajendar shouts ‘Daiiiii’ many people will flee from the scene. And one of them will fall down. Pakkiri plays the character of the guy who falls for..err..who falls down. Sundaresan said ‘Mr Pakkiri was very calm and composed. Even when the barber brought the blade close to his neck, Mr Pakkiri was unperturbed. Whilst leaving the barber shop, Mr Pakkiri gifted a kai naatufied(Thumb impression equivalent of autograph) blade to an elated Sundaresan.
2. Shankar in Thiruttu(Pirated) CD shop.
Reader Thygarajan runs a Thiruttu CD shop in CMH Road, Indira Nagar, Bangalore. Thyagarajan says ‘Shankar is planning to release his next movie in a Thiruttu CD. So he wanted to know how the market works’. A very thrilled Thyagu gifted the Thiruttu CD’s of all Shankar movies, so that he can reuse them in his next movie. It seems Shankar has promised Thyagu, that he will be given due credits.
3. Sneha in Hardware shop
Reader Aparna least expected that she will run into Actor Sneha, that too in a hardware shop in R.A.Puram chennai. It seems Sneha had come there to buy some paint for her house. When Aparna asked her ‘Why did you come to buy the paint, and not send someone else?’ Ms Sneha replied saying ‘I want to buy paint that matches my teeth color’ and gave her trademark smile. Aparna was bowled over by Sneha’s simplicity. Its not all. Sneha also shared a beauty secret. It seems she takes bath first in turpentine and then using normal soap. Aparna was extremely thrilled and said ‘I will call Sun Music ladies choice and share this tip with Hema Sinha, and ask her to dedicate a song to Sneha’.
4. Rajdeep Sardesai in rest room.

He advised Choo choo that these days one needs to be extremely careful with their personal belongings, especially mobiles.
