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
