I was watching a Rajini movie the other day in which he has a double role. The first time when they both meet each other in a jail, one of them says ,” Adhu eppidipa nee enna madhiriye irruke”.This is something that has intrigued me always whenever I watch a movie like that. Do you really think you can recognize yourself . Actually, I dont look at myself that often to register my face thoroughly. I might be able to instantly affirm somebody’s resemblance to Suresh as I live with him and see him every single day. I have not seen even a single movie where they fail to recognize the other person in the very first shot. My face is not that unique , though I assume it to be :-). I can easily get lost in a crowd and it has been more than once when people have said that I resemble one of their friends.Maybe, I have the “girl next door” look , which would make it all the more tough to recognize my double. The question is..Can you?
Talking about double roles reminds me of the time when I took my niece Arthi, who was 7 yrs old then, to watch the movie “Duplicate”. She got very confused on seeing “good Sharukh” and “bad Sharukh”, shouting for all to hear almost in most of the shots, “Shoba, Is this good Sharukh or bad Sharukh?”. Man…That was ONE confusing movie for her , in turn providing non stop entertainment for me and my friend A. …LOL
