Why do we Indians have to make a mockery of ourselves in front of an international audience?
First it was SRK who turned up at the Golden Globe Awards wearing a tie inside his shirt, in line with his 'Don' look. As if people in Hollywood knew what his "Don" look was all about! There is a time & place for all the tomfoolery that SRK does and the Golden Globe Awards was not it. He can get away with his silly antics at the Filmfare Awards but at an international ceremony, such acts only make one look stupid.
Then Anil Kapoor decided to be one up on SRK. At the Screen Actor's Guild Awards, where he won the 'Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture' award, he touched Anthony Hopkin's feet while receiving the award! Hopkins obviously didn't know the significance or relevance of this gesture & was taken aback!
I really don't understand why we have to make a fool of ourselves in front of the whole world. It would've made sense had Anil Kapoor touched the feet of his father or a senior Indian actor, who would've gotten the relevance of this gesture. For Anthony Hopkins it would be one of the "I-had-no-clue-what-he-was-doing-I-thought-he-was-going-to-pull-my-leg!!" stories that he would narrate to everyone he meets for quite sometime.
Can never imagine someone like Amitabh Bachchan or Abhishek Bachchan do something like this, and therein lies the difference between class and crass.
