On May 21st, Madhuri Dixit unveiled the June issue of Filmfare featuring her on the front cover. She looked stunning in both the magazine and in the unveiling. Madhuri looked gorgeous in a black outfit and beautiful curls. Mr. Jitesh Pillai who is the editor of Filmfare magazine was present during this event and promoted the magazine along with Madhuri. This particular issue is sure to be a hit as we haven’t seen Madhuri in what seems like forever. Her upcoming move Aaja Nachle is also very hyped as it will mark the return of the dance diva Madhuri Dixit.
Another event held the same night, was the music launch of the much hyped Deol movie titled “Apne”. The event seemed to be the biggest in about a decade as many celebrities rushed to join the Deols during their special moments. The Dhoot videocon family was invited, and they presented the entire starcast with free electrolux air conditioners. Celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar, Saira Banu, All of the Deols, and many others were present for the magnificent event.
On May 22nd, held in Cinemax was the music launch of Ronny Grewal’s Mp3- Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar. Present were newbies- Hazel and Ruslaan Mumtaz. The movie hasn’t seen much publicity as it’s not very hyped or looked forward to by many. Nevertheless, Hazel looked gorgeous in a a very modern outfit, with jeans and a layered shirt. The tied up patterned blouse looks wonderful over the white tank. Ruslaan looks good as well but he may need a few tips in dressing up for a music launch next time around (Hopefully, there will be a next time around for the very promising newbies). Many others who are part of the starcast were also present for the event.
The premiere of Shootout at Lokhandwala, a movie based on true rumors was held on the 25th of May at the Inorbit Mall. The whole starcast (which is quite large) attended the premiere including their families as well. Vivek Oberoi attended the premiere with his dad and other family members. Many Khans were present for the premiere as well such as Saif, Salman, Zayed, Sohail, and Arbaaz. Many other celebrities such as Lara Dutta, Katrina Kaif, Celina Jaitley, and of course Geeta Basra (who attends every event possible). The premiere was definetly a huge hit and we’re hoping the movie will be as well, as it’s making its way to the top.
While the SOAL premiere took place in the Inorbit mall, others celebrated the premiere of Cheeni Kum. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Tabu, and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles, this movie seems very promising. Held on May 25th in Cinemax the Cheeni Kum premiere was as huge of an event as the SOAL premiere. Present were Amitabh and Tabu, who both looked wonderful. Paresh Rawal was not able to attend but, he’ll definetly make his presence felt in the movie where he plays the character of Tabu’s father. Amitabh and Abhishek walked in together but many photographers refused to take pictures of the father-son duo because of how they were treated during the Abhi-Ash wedding. Others present were the director (Balki), Neetu Chandra, Minisha Lamba, Sonu Sood, Ila Arun, Anil Sharma and many others.
Ending our weekly events, on May 26th John Abraham and Milind Soman were invited to a media meet to celebrate “No Tobacco day”. Well why these two? The answer to that question is that John and Milind will be seen in their upcoming movie titled “No Smoking” which is a story about a man who decides to quit smoking. This event was held in Taj Lands End where much of the starcast was present to spread no smoking awareness to the media/audience. Others present from the cast/crew were Anurag Kashyap (director) and Kumar Mangat. “No Smoking” which is eagerly awaited by many will release in Late 2007.
