Kumar (the cook from the Mandala) just stopped by. We thought he had forgotten to charge us for some portion of our lunch. Nope. He just came to ask if D & I wanted to be in a movie that’s shooting at the Lalitha Mahal Palace tomorrow. 1000 rupees for each of us for the day (that’s equivalent to about $22 US, but it goes a long way here), plus breakfast, lunch, coffee, transport… and we get to see the Lalitha Mahal, which we had talked about doing anyway.

We have no idea what the movie’s about or what they’ll ask us to do and we didn’t ask. But as we’re fairly certain Kumar wouldn’t get us mixed up in the Indian porn industry, we immediately say yes.

So Kumar the cook/casting agent whips out his cellie and calls his guy to arrange everything. As he was leaving, I told him, “You know, we live in Hollywood. It’s only when we come to India to practice yoga that we wind up in the movies.”

    Well, the shoot was postponed today because some dignitary showed up at the palace and the film crew couldn’t set up. It may happen Saturday or it may not happen at all. Kinda like a Hollywood shoot.
