Subhash Ghai’s recent music launch for his much awaited film Kaanchi was a grand success. The evening was a star studded one, with special appearance by Jackie Shroff.
The industry’s who’s-who poured in with their well wishes for the director and the lead couple Mishti and Kartik Tiwari. The musical evening included memorable performances by singers Ankit Tiwari, Anweshaa and the talented composer duo Salim-Sulaiman. The glittering occasion also saw lyricist Ismail Darbar enjoying the performances.
The highlight of the evening was Subhash Ghai who danced with Jackie Shroff on stage, reminiscing the good old days. Hrithik Roshan, Madhur Bhandarkar and Dharmendra also dropped by later in the evening to wish the director.
Speaking about the grand music launch director Subash Ghai said, “I feel blessed to see the overwhelming support the film industry has extended towards me. I am touched by the positive response I have received for the recently released trailer and the music launch for Kaanchi.”
Director Subhash Ghai has also turned composer and lyricist for the first time with Kaanchi. He was seen rapping to a song on stage during the event, sung by the talented singer Mika. When initially approached to sing that song, Mika was so glad to be associated with the stellar director that he refused to accept any payment for it. The money was eventually given to an NGO run by the popular singer.
Directed by Subhash Ghai, Kaanchi is the story of an innocent rural beauty and her fight against power. Starring Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Kartik Aaryan, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Rishabh Sinha and introducing Mishti, the musical drama is produced by Mukta Arts and is slated to release on 25th April, 2014.
