“Lights, camera, action”, screamed the director who was impatient with the way things were going.
“Come on people i dont have the whole day to complete this shot. Move your asses and get it done soon..”
Meghna knew the director was not in his best of moods and so she decided to ask her request for half a day’s off tomorrow. This was her golden opportunity for doing an AD and she didnt want to screw this up.
As she proceeded to do the shot once more with all the concentration that she could muster, she got distracted with a cute kid trying to push through the crowd to see the shooting that was going on.
She stood like a statute smiling at the small girl’s antics when she saw a disheveled man hurrying to pull the small girl to safety from the ‘big’ people as he referred to them.
Even though the guy was in ragged clothes he had a very handsome face with a beautiful pair of eyes.
The fun time of ‘sighting’ for Meghna ended as fast as it began as the director started screaming at her to finish the shot soon.
As the AD shoot finally got over, she made her way towards the duo to find out that cute gal’s and probably the handsome guy’s name too. The distance was not too great to reach them but as she neared them she was shocked to find that they guy was actually her ex- boyfriend.
Surprised that he had a kid this big she neared him slowly.
He turned his face sensing that someone was nearing them and his tired face started brightening seeing her walk towards them.
“Hi Sanjay. Been long. What have you been upto?”
“Hi Meghna. Yes, been very long. Well my life has been a big roller coaster ride.”
“Am surprised you have such a big kid. Is she yours?”
“Well yes Meghna, this beautiful angel is mine😊”
“Woww Sanjay never knew you got married!! Congrats!”
“No i didnt get married Meghna. I found this angel dumped in a dustbin in noman’s land and not having the heart to leave her there I brought her home along with me, thinking i will find her a new home but then i started getting attached to her more and more and now i have officially become her dad!”
Meghna was speechless for a moment. She knew it required a huge heart to do something selfless as this. She started thinking if she judged him too soon for the things that happened with them.
“Woww Sanjay! That is such a selfless act that you have done. Do you want to go for a coffee maybe? Lets catch up on whats going on now.”
“Sure Meghna! It would be my pleasure!” Smiled Sanjay.
Meghna beamed at the thought of talking to her one true love whom she thought she had found before the breakup happened.
Most of her life had been a series of “LIGHTS, CAMERA , ACTION” but now she wanted to live a life behind the camera without any acting and get to live her life the way her heart takes her instead of following what the director tells her.
