Avi! What are you doing here?

What happened?!

Avi, wait! Your dad's asleep.

Av!

Get up!

I'm not a eunuch!

I'm a homosexual!

You do know the difference, right?

You are a professor!

It's neither wrong to be a eunuch,

nor to be homosexual!

The only thing 'wrong

is a person like you!

Did you hear me! Someone like you!

Get up!

"It's a strange tale.."

"Where does it begin,

where does it end?"

"Where do these destinations lie?"

"Neither could he understand,

nor could I."

nor could I."

"My best wishes are with you."

"For you are now an

apple of someone's eye."

"My best wishes are with you."

"For you are now an

apple of someone's eye."

"You have come so

close to someone..."

"That you've distanced

yourself from everyone else."

"It's a strange tale.."

See you later?

"Where does it begin,

where does it end?"

"Where do these destinations lie?"

"Neither could he understand,

nor could I."

"It's a strange tale.."

Good morning, ma'am. - Morning.

Good morning, ma'am.

I needed to discuss

some papers with you.

Just give me 2 minutes.

Hi.

A wedding necklace around the neck

.and a hint of lust in the eyes.

Excuse me?

Who are you?

A new intern.

Temporary. For 3 months.

But I'll get a permanent

job if you recommend me.

Let's see if you last that long.

Trust me, I last very long.

By the way,

aren't you an associate editor?

Don't you have a

cabin or something here?

I feel suffocated

behind closed doors.

Do you have a problem with that?

- Not at all.

And the view from

here is great as 'well.

Quite hot, huh?

I, mo,

like Gold-Gym trained types.

Rough, tough, puff.

Enough.

I'm gay, by the way.

What is this, madam?!

Such a at reaction?

I deserve an overreaction

over this statement.

Why? You are just a gay,

not a terrorist.

You should tell that to my dad.

He would've spared

me if I was Kasab.

He wants to hang me as I am gay.

I don't blame him.

I, mo, want to do the same.

Well...

Sorry. I want to impress you.

111at's why I am going

a little overboard.

I don't get impressed so quickly.

No stress. I've got 3 months.

What's your name?

Avinash.

Avinash what?

What's lies in this "What", ma'am?

It's this "What"

that has screwed me up.

Just plain and simple Avinash.

Right.

Can 'we 'work now'? - Yeah, sure.

Hurry up, guys.

We've to meet the deadline.

Amrita, c'mon.

Hurry up. We have to lock in 5.

Gayatri. - Yes? -What is this?

Stars first spread

the rumours then deny it.

We, mo, publish a

lie and then we write...

"Remained unavailable for comment."
