News item yesterday: Leopard strays into actress Hema Malini’s garden compound, hides in garden while she is holidaying abroad
How Hema Malini responded on the phone to forest and police authorities:
“Please don’t harm the leopard in any way. These poor animals stray into our lives because we are slowly taking over their natural habitat. There should not be even a single scratch on the leopard.”
How Dharmendra would have responded:
To leopard: “Kuttey, kaminey, main tera khoon pee jaoonga!”
