    You don’t need to give many details.Just basics.

    Also if you have seen any celebs in real life?

    Meenaxi seshadhari is my husband’s side relative.Not too close but they know her parents it seems.She is very pretty also.

    I always want to see Samantha actress is real life if she is cute as she looks on screen.Anyone seen her in person?:)

    No direct relatives.
    I have seen Cho Ramaswamy several times at family functions.We were very young at the time so there was no chance of talking to him. I also saw Manisha Koirala once in NYC long ago. She was the grand marshal for the Indian Independence Day parade and marched alongside Mayor Giuliani. She was pretty but so tiny.
    Tamil comedian Madhu of the Crazy Mohan troupe lived in our neighborhood when I was a child and could often be seen riding a scooter. I also saw Protima Bedi once at her dance performance in Bangalore shortly before her untimely death.

    @anika987

    My uncle used to be a Tamil film director and now he is seen in most movie as a comedy actor. He was born 6 months prior to me and he is my mother's own brother. I don't want to name him because he is heavy-headed and thinks everyone is taking advantage of his position. I have no contact with him for almost 2 decades now and I have no interest in using his name for anything.

    When I was practicing as a Chartered Accountant, I had many film personalities as my tax clients. It included Balu Mahendra, actress Shoba, producers of the movie Moodu Pani (Tamil film). I visited their house after actress Shoba committed suicide and I met many actors and actresses in their house. In my young age, I had seen many shootings personally through contacts and got to meet many film personalities. When I was doing my articleship, my boss was a member of the General Council of AIADMK and in the process, I have conducted audits of Sathya Studios financial records. In the process, I met MGR's movies filmed inside the studio. He being a very nice personality, always enter into the office to inquire whether we all had breakfast, lunch, etc. Once it was pouring down and we couldn't leave from the studio until 9 p.m. He called and arranged food to be delivered from a famous restaurant for all of us to eat in the studio and dropped us all back at home. Later, after migrating to the US, many times, I met film celebraties in the airport many times.

    All these actresses after living in the U.S., cleaning own house, and doing grocery shopping, going for PTA meeting, potlucks etc start to look like normal women.

    Meenakshi Seshadari visited Rishi Kapoor unannounced and he couldn't recognize his Damini co-star!

    And here is a more recent picture of Meenakshi, like February 2022:

    To be fair, Rishi didn’t exactly resemble his glory days, may he RIP.

    I once saw Jason Alexander (played George Costanza on Seinfeld). This was at a tourist spot. It was nice to see people leaving him and his group alone. But this was before selfies : )

    Attended a meeting in which Seshan was the guest of honor. True to his style, during the Q&A session, he summarily told one or two question askers to sit down as their question was "nonsense" : )
