Twenty-five things that seem impossible right now but we hope against hope we will be able to see before we perish in the supposed catastrophe at the end of this year...
1 Tom Cruise landing a two-minute blink-and-miss role in an Anil Kapoor starrer film and going to town talking about it.
2 Abhishek and Aishwarya deciding on their baby girl's name
3 Actresses admitting to being normal red-blooded women and not some plastic doll that is expected to never have a love life.... The only gutsy girl to do it was Deepika Padukone, who has also turned coy over time.
4 SRK not talking about his kids in an interview.
5 Sushmita Sen taking a breather between the men she loves.
6 Ram Gopal Varma's tweets making some sense. Any sense.
7 Shahid Kapur tweeting without a single grammatical error.
8 Vivek Oberoi not talking about being a good Samaritan
9 Prateik's PR machinery taking a month's holiday
10 Katrina Kaif not sporting that poker straight I-am-a-good-girl hairstyle and attitude.
11 Aamir Khan taking a spontaneous decision to watch an SRK film.
12 Jacqueline Fernandes' thighs, Nargis Fakri's lips and Imran Khan's eyebrows stop having a life of their own.
13 Vidya Balan in size-zero.
14 Sonam Kapoor without the 'I am so stylish' look.
15 Sanjay Dutt making his decisions without wife Maanyata's help.
16 Starlets stop thinking that not buying underwear will save money and get them instant publicity.
17 Malaika Arora Khan in clothes.
18 Madhuri Dixit without a truckload of make up on her pretty face.
19 Aditya Chopra and Kangana Ranaut's firang boyfriend being seen to assure us that they exist.
20 Anurag Kashyap letting his friends' films talk for themselves.
21 Minissha Lamba and the rest of her ilk declaring their newly acquired 'assets' at the customs.
22 Kangana Ranaut saying three English words straight and the audience actually getting it.
23 An open catfight between two actresses, instead of the diplomatic cold vibes and backbiting. Manisha Koirala and Mamta Kulkarni, we miss you and your bindass squabbles.
24 Rakhi Sawant observing a two-minute silence.
25 Hrithik Roshan without an injury.
