(PHONE CHIMES) Hello Yeah, It is okay. Oh is it? Sreekanth, you know the character you auditioned for… its been finalized for another actor. We are almost done with casting. Will let you know once the next project starts. Small roles? Hmm… Everything is almost fixed. Now the only characters left are that of IT professionals. But it requires someone with a clean shaven look. And we are looking for youngsters. Also, there is another problem. Our director has recommended a few people for that character. I think they will be doing it. So there is no point in trying for that. If there is anything else, I will let you know. Okay? May be next project. Okay? Don’t worry. If anything comes up I will call you. I am a bit busy now. I will call you later. Okay, take care. Don’t worry. Bye Get the hell out of here. Your worthless cinema, theater and whatnot. Do you have any idea the time you’ve wasted? While all of your friends are well settled with their own lives… …you still run around chasing your stupid dreams. You are a bad example for your siblings who look upon you. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself? I am ashamed of a son like you. You stupid retard. The only ones who can live by my rules can stay under my roof. Others can just leave my house. [Murmurs in Background] Bro… where is Sreekanth? Where else? Chasing some director’s tail. Just saw him reading some sleazy film magazine. He has totally screwed up his life, man. We did our Engineering degree together. Hasn’t got placed anywhere, nor has he even tried for it, how can he even live on? Who knows? Shaven head, face full of beard – He say its for his role. Disgusting!

How long should I wait for you? Can you please tell me? One year? Two years? Tell me. You’ve got nothing to say? Why can’t you understand, Sree? Why can’t you understand my situation?

Idiot! Life of Sreekanth still moves on. An unintended joke has somehow brought him back to life. It was just a phone call that brought a new ray of hope to his life. Maybe another phone call awaits him that will really change his life. It’s that hope that pushes him forward. It’s all our hopes that moves all of us forward. We are lost souls in search of a place that’s meant just for us. We all are destined to that place. EDAM (Place) The End
