On day two of IIFA, I ran into Raj and Pablo and they took some time out to talk to me about their experiences so far, whom they have seen, chatted with and who told them they were good looking!
Hello Raj and Pablo, first of all thank you so much for sitting down with us. Tell us a bit about your time here at IIFA so far.
IIFA Rocks was the fashion event last night and the green carpet was filled with stars. We got a chance to speak with SRK, Bipasha, Hemaji, Neha Dhupia, Vivek Oberoi and his lovely wife – our new bhabi – Sonakshi, Anil Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Jermaine Jackson, Sonu Nigam and many more!
Any intervew highlights?
Many! Shahrukh gave us a double hug, one head in each arm. Esha Deol looked stunning in a red Manav S. sari. Bipasha also looked wonderful in a cropped black dress. Sonakshi Sinha, dressed in Alexander McQueen, gave us the biggest kiss. Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar were as elegant as ever. Zeenat Aman was ravishing as well.
How about some of the most memorable quotes from the stars?
Anupam Kher was dressed in Canadian colours, saying ‘when in Canada do as the Canadians’. Neha was overwhelmed by the love of her Toronto fans. Bipasha told us she is looking forward to performing and loves working with Shiamak Davar. Hema Malini is ecstatic to be showcasing Esha’s new film. Sonakshi said she was glad to finally put a face to the voices. The legendary Jermaine Jackson told us that the Jacksons used to watch black and white Bollywood films as kids. Ritesh Deshmukh told us that he’s ‘doubleb trouble dhamaal’. And our favorite, Boney Kapoor says we are far too good-looking to be cast as villains.
And any Bollywood scoop?
Anil is so excited about Mr. India 2. Boney Kapoor is happy to be head of Sahara Motion Pictures.
And that was it, short and sweet. It was time for us to rush to the next event, the Green Carpet for the awards, so we are signing off till later!
