Mira Nair"s film The Namesake may not have really set the cash registers ringing when it opened across India in March this year. However in USA, the movie has really found both critical and commercial acclaim.
Now with the Oscars just around the corner, Mira Nair and her team are going all out to see that the movie does make it to the final nomination list. For this, the lead cast of the film is in New York holding special screenings to promote the film.
Bollywood actors Irrfan Khan and Tabu, along with Mira Nair, author Jhumpa Lahiri and the writer of the film Sooni Taraporewala also attended a luncheon hosted by none other than Hollywood diva Uma Thurman yesterday in a New York restaurant. The actress of films like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill is apparently a big admirer of Mira"s work.
