First half of the day, there was a press conference at the plush Mandarin Oriental Hotel to announce the 2008 Unforgettable tour.
In the evening, Lincoln Center was awash in saris and salwars, as crowds gathered for the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan fundraiser to mark the 100th anniversary of Mr. Harivansh Rai’s birth, with Mr. Bachchan (pÃ¨re) there to do a poetry reading. Also in attendance were Mr. Bachchan (fils) and his blushing (in pink) bride Mrs. Aishwarya Bachchan.
Here are some pix from the day:
