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.
