Designer Ramesh Dembla kicked off the Fashionista 09 fashion festival in Bangalore with an intricate mix of designs combining Indian and Western themes, portending the future of fashion in India perhaps, and a host of Bollywood stars walking the catwalk. Riya Sen, Sophie Chaudary, Shaurya Chauhan and Neil Nitin Mukesh were all in evidence with Neil doing his best to promote the movie Aa Dekhen Zara, in which he stars with Sophie, Bipasha Basu and Koena Mitra.
Riya Sen looked perfect on the catwalk in a white evening gown embellished with rhinestones and feathers but according to a source, it was model Smiley Suri who apparently captured a lot of Neil’s time at the after-show party.
Neil is very excited by Aa Dekhen Zara which he hopes will grab the public’s attention. It’s a movie about a young man who inherits a camera that can take photographs of the future. “You have to accept what this protagonist and the camera are trying to tell you,” he explains, “Unbelievable as it may sound, in the film it is this camera that is trying to make contact with other characters through this protagonist. If you identify with the protagonist in scene one, which, by the way is the intent of the film’s narrative, you are with him till the end of the film.”
Riya Sen is looking forward to playing the role of the villain’s girlfriend in Krrish 2, whilst Sophie Chaudhary will appear in Daddy Cool with Mammootty, Tulip Joshi and Kim Sharma after ADZ. Shaurya Chauhan recently popped up in Horn OK Pleaase.
