I tried telling a story from his point of veiw. 🙂
I am Assah Thamby. I live in Kuala Lumpur. When I was coming out of Murugan temple at Batu Caves, I heard some gun shots and a group of people chasing a man into a restaurant close to the parking area. Then I saw a huge group of people rushing in to see what was happening. I got panicked and tried to join them, but there was a barricade. Then I was looking around and I saw some people laughing about it saying its a film shoot of Telugu movie ‘Billa’ remake of Tamil one. I was relaxed and I thought its fun to watch a movie shoot, so making most of the time, I lighted a cigarette, and stood there with my daughters for a while.
Among the film crew, an Indian photographer caught my eye, to my surprise he came up to me and asked if he could take a picture of mine. I said yes, he clicked a picture, and he didn’t stop there. He said he wants to take some more shots while I was smoking. For the last one he wanted a serious face, then I figured what he was looking for. I asked him ‘like a crooked fellow?’. He was too happy for what I said and immediately said ‘yes, thats the one’. He showed those few pictures to us and asked my name and e-mail ID so that he can send the shots. I told him my name, but I don’t have an e-mail ID. My daughter gave him her e-mail ID.
