I was in The New Indian Express and heading a weekly movie magazine named Movie Scope around 2003-2004. I decided to interview “Megastar” Chiranjeevi for the first issue. It also happened to be my first interview with him. He was a journalist’s delight, full of repartee, anecdote, gossip and unadulterated charm. He showed me around his Jubilee Hills residence and his rooftop swimming pool and his famous Veena dance move from a song in Tagore. Once the interview was wrapped up and I was preparing to leave, a happy camper, Chiranjeevi suddenly said in Telugu, “Meeru ekkuva aiyyindi ani anukokaa pothe (if you don’t think it is too much)....” He then pulled out a bunch of flowers lying in a bowl next to him and placed them in my hand. With dripping flowers in my hands, a soaking notepad and pen and a spreading blush, I remember that scene as my biggest fan moment ever.
