This is the classic tale of the teacher and the tot. Apparently, the Big B has inadvertently aided Farah Khan’s little son Czar’s enhanced performance in school. When Czar was under-performing in his English speech it was the Big B’s famous ‘Walk In English, Talk In English’ speech from Namak Halaal that came to the child’s rescue.
Reveals the proud mother, “I taught it to him .You see, Czar’s teachers told me he only spoke in Hindi and Marathi. I was advised to encourage him to speak in English. So, I taught him Amitji’s Namal Halaal monologue which according to me is a most comprehensive English primer for any child. Filmy maa hoon na.”
On Wednesday, at the house-warming party at Farah’s place, Czar got his chance to have his say in front of the man who came to his rescue in school. Czar recited his Namak Halaal monologue, much to the Big B’s delight as he realized that a new generation of Bachchan fans in the tiny-tot section is gearing to keep the legend going.
Now that papa Shirish Kunder is making a film called The Common Man with the Big B, his little son Czar is determined to prove that the Big B is an uncommon man.
Incidentally, Farah’s chum Sanjay Leel Bhansali who is not a kids’ person gets on famously with Czar. Sanjay has promised to launch Czar as a hero.
Mom Farah is already the leading lady in SLB’s sister Bela Sehgal’s film. Like mother, like son, eh?
