Sneak Peek into 2011

Dhobi Ghat

Directed by Kiran Rao
Produced by Kiran Rao, Aamir Khan
Starring: Aamir Khan, Prateek Babbar
Distributed by Aamir Khan Productions
Release date: 21st January 2011

This much awaited Hindi film sees Kiran Rao make her directorial debut. Casting husband Aamir Khan in the lead role as a painter, Dhobi Ghat would be Khan’s first release post 3 idiots. Having had its premiere at the Elgin Theatre during the Toronto Film Festival in September 2010 the film was said to be watched by the audience in silence and received a prolonged ovation on completion. One of our writers was there and he called it “Poetry on Film”.

In a question and answer session that followed Rao explained that the film was her elegiac tribute to Mumbai, a city which had given and taught her so much in the decade-long formative years she had spent in it. With such high expectations from this film, lets hope it is just as successful at the box office.
