Anurag Kashyap & Kalki Koechlin film premiere at the Asia Society

Last night New Yorkers had a chance to see That Girl in Yellow Boots when it had its worldwide premiere at the Asia Society, more than a week before it releases across the US and India.

The film was the opener at last year’s SAIFF and created much excitement there.

(By the way, there was an audible gasp that went up in the audience when, just before the lights dimmed, it was mentioned that there would be an exhibit opening in September of paintings and drawings by Rabindranath Tagore.)

Here are a few photos from the red carpet last night and the Q&A afterward, to be followed very shortly by an interview with writer/director Kalki & writer/director Anurag:

And yes, the boots were there too:

 

PS – check out the staircase at the Asia Society…… doesn’t it make you think of vertebrae?

And even though it was only a Wednesday night in New York, to judge by the crowds in Times Square, you would have thought people were starting to gather for the dropping of the ball on New year’s Eve.  Here are a few pix:

Gotta love those t-shirt vendors (who keep us safe from would-be bombers)
