Ashish and Thomas caught up with Semi at her White House, and came back enlightened about the Girebaal family, Mahesh Bhatt’s itching habits and other stuff your mommy never told you about.
Semi Girebaal is gonna be on at the same time as the original Simi Aunty (Sundays, 9:30 p.m on MTV).
How did the name ‘Girebaal’ come about? Is your hair falling?
Girebaal is a wonderful family, dating back to the 1700s. If you read the Sistine Chapel, and also ‘The Mating Habits of the Money Plant’ by Dr. Chopra, you’ll learn about how our family saved the world. Basically when Lord Gire was fighting Jun Baal, their swords met, and they united. And thus was born the name Girebaal.
You pakao so many people on TV. Were you pakaoed as a kid?
I led a very sheltered childhood. We hadn’t many friends. When you are truly more attractive than others, it’s very very tough. I’ve talked to a couple of MTV VJs and looking at them I understood that they’d never know this feeling.
Why aren’t you on Bigg Boss? Oh wait..are you the Bigg Boss?
It’s true. It’s me..I am the Bigg Boss. (JAM DOES IT AGAIN! We’ve solved the world’s second biggest mystery, the first one being Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai)
What if there were cameras planted all over your house?
They’ve tried that, but the whiteness of it all burns out everything. There’s a term called ‘burnout’ – it happens to 99% of the stars in our country..ahahahahaha!
Does your White House also have an Oral..err..Oval office?
No, no we have none of those offices. It’s not white..it’s shades of white. There’s a big difference.. you know what I’m talking about right?
Umm..I’ll pretend I do..
Great..because I have no idea.
So what’s Mahesh Bhatt doing on your show?
Mahesh Bhatt for you, and Moo Moo for me of course. We talked a lot – I remember when he was younger, he came looking for a break and couldn’t get one. There was a lot of pain in him. He keeps twitching and scratching because of that pain. I think itching is a way of getting to know yourself. You’re always in touch with yourself, and touching yourself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
Who do you think should never open up on your show?
Oh I think everyone needs that break. I had a surgeon once, and when he opened up he truly showed me his heart and his pancreas and I wasn’t interested…
What do you think about JAM?
Oooh..JAM! You nasty boys..you write a lot of dirty stuff about people. I love it!
