    Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan go to Florence

    Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan go to Florence

    Dhobi Ghat and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara will be screened at the River To River film fest in December. Cineswami takes a look at other Indian and Pakistani films at the fest
    Well, technically not them, but their films. Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, starring Hrithik Roshan, has been selected to screen at the annual River To River film festival in Florence, Italy that unspools December 2-8. Kiran Rao’s acclaimed Dhobi Ghat, starring hubby Aamir Khan will close the festival. The fest will open with Anindo Bandopadhyay’s Bengali film Chaplin, about how a Charlie Chaplin impersonator ekes out a living. Actor Rudranil Ghosh will participate in a Q&A after the screening. He isn’t exactly Aamir or Hrithik, but the good folk of Florence have no other choice, short of flying to Mumbai and hanging out outside the stars’ houses hoping for a dekko.
    This being Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s 150th anniversary, the festival is celebrating him with several films. Click here to read more

    Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Zoya Akhtar’s true confessions at IFFI Goa

    Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Zoya Akhtar’s true confessions at IFFI Goa

    Cineswami managed to know some secrets of the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara stars and director, at the 42nd International Film Festival of India in Goa
    The secret is out. Abhay Deol and Zoya Akhtar have confessed that they don’t watch non-Bollywood films, that is, films made outside Mumbai in the other Indian states. Kalki Koechlin said that she’d watched a few Marathi films, but only when she was, in her own word, “dragged” to screenings by hubby Anurag Kashyap. The trio were on a panel at the just concluded Film Bazaar organised by the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) that ran alongside the International Film Festival of India in Goa. Interestingly, though the discussion was about new trends in Indian cinema, the august panel spoke only about Bollywood. The trio were jolted out of their smug mutual back scratching when an intrepid and very polite member of the audience asked them the loaded question about whether they watched films in other Indian languages.
