NYIFF 2011 Off & Running

So the annual Indo-American Arts Council New York Indian Film Festival has started with a bang and some bling and the participation of filmi royalty.

Last night, Rishi Kapoor and his lovely wife Neetu Singh Kapoor walked the red carpet at the Paris theater for the opening film of this year’s festival Do Dooni Char.  (This is Disney’s first live-action Hindi film.)  Just get a load of Mrs. Kapoor’s beautiful emeralds… yowza!

After the screening, they were joined for a Q & A by the film’s director, Habib Faisal, the man who also wrote my fave, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
