The first major screening of Aryan at a preview theatre in
Bandra on Thursday night [June 29] was like a mini premiere. The
private screening, hosted by Sohail Khan and Aryan
director Abhishek Kapoor, witnessed a galaxy of stars and
celebrities attending the show.
Jeetendra was amongst the first to arrive [he's Abhishek's
uncle], while Subhash Ghai and David Dhawan with wife Lali followed
minutes later. Choreographer-director Ahmed Khan and brother Bobby
Khan, actors Zayed Khan, Dino Morea, Ashmit Patel, Vivek Mushran,
Dia Mirza, Kim Sharma, Aarti Chhabria, Samyukta and Keith,
television actors Hiten Tejwani and Yash Tonk, Vrajesh Hirjee,
directors Vicky Chopra and Puneet Sira, writer Vekeana and several
others clapped and cheered throughout this select screening.
At a time when the biggest of makers are scared to show their
films even to their best of friends, this gesture by Sohail and
Abhishek Kapoor to screen Aryan three weeks before its
theatrical release needs to be lauded. Bravo!
