It seems that the journalist wanting to interview her had not done his homework and kept asking the funny Renuka Shahane questions about her 'weeklies!'

We all know Renuka Shahane as this soft-spoken, warm and a polite lady. But did you know that her quick wit can give the very funny Shah Rukh Khan a run for his money?

Don't believe us?

Well then, take a look at this conversation between Shahane and a scribe. It seems that the journalist wanting to interview her had not done his homework and kept asking her questions about her background!

But the true professional that she is, Shahane kept her word on continuing the interview and gave us all a sneak peek into her funny personality. In fact, the conversation is so funny that it went viral within a few minutes after she posted it online.

With more than 980 shares and 6,800 likes and counting, this post is the funniest thing posted on Facebook in recent days. We bet you will roll on the floor laughing when you reach the end.

Take a look for yourself:

A "journalist" called on behalf of a well-known daily, I'll call him J for short.
J: Ma'am we would like to 'do' your interview for a column about veteran tv actors.
Me: Okay
J: So apart from Surabhi which I remember you've done Swabhimaan right?
Me: Many serials but not Swabhimaan
J: Oh no no it was Shanti right? It was very popular....
Me: It sure was but I wasn't in it?
J (sounding utterly gobsmacked): Er....then what were you in? Please tell me names of your serials?
Me: Why didn't you do your homework?
J: Please ma'am help me now...I will do it from next time....only a few questions
Me: Okay

J: What is the difference between the serials you did & the serials today?
Me: Serials I acted in were weeklies.
J: Weeklies?
Me ( patiently): We have daily soaps now...they are called dailies because they are shown daily. My Serials were called Weeklies because they were shown once a week
J: Oh so only once a week? You mean one story for one week?
Me: No....how do I explain this? You have daily newspapers, weekly magazines, fortnightly ones & monthly ones.....some are printed quarterly? Right?
J: Oh so you had a lot of variety like Weeklies & Fortnightly
Me: No no....I mean we had variety....but I was just drawing an analogy so that you could relate it to your work
Pause
Me: Are you there?
J: Yes ma'am....I thought you were drawing something so I waited
Me: Hmmmm are you writing anything down at all?
J: Ma'am I've got an excellent memory.....you've acted in Surabhi....and you've acted in Shanti which was a weekly & you acted in a variety of Fortnightly & quarterly Serials too ma'am

Me (trying to hold back the mirth): You're amazing....you've got it spot on....now may I please go back to er....drawing analogies
J: Sure ma'am....if you what's app me the photo of the drawing of the "allergy" I can include it as your hobby....it's a very unique concept.

Sigh....some journalists are a source of great entertainment.....the upside is that I've bought myself a canvas....still not been able to draw my "allergy" though

Now that is a funny lady!
