Harman, his father, producer-director Harry Baweja, his girlfriend and co-star, Priyanka Chopra and Boman Irani flew into London on Wednesday for the premiere of Love Story 2050. But as Harman reveals, there was a catch. "We left at interval. We couldn't stay for the whole film because we had to catch a flight back to Mumbai to look into the film's release in India. It was really sad that I could just stay for half of my first film. But I had no choice. We'd have missed our flight. We returned from London to Mumbai within ten hours. But never mind. I deputed some of my London-based cousins to look after the guests at the premiere."
While the Khans went all-out to ensure a massive glamorous turn-out at the Mumbai premiere of Imran Khan's debut film, the Bawejas restricted all their flamboyance to their 80-crore budgeted film.
Off screen they played it conservative and decided to have a quiet intimate screening of the film at Yash Raj Studios. Only close family and friends of the Bawejas were invited. Says a source, "They were just not interested in getting into a confrontational mode at all. The screening of Love Story 2050 on Thursday night was a quiet informal occasion when family and friends got to see the film for the first time."
Another screening of the film was held on Friday night at Yash Raj Studios, this time for colleagues from the industry. Nervous and anxious hours before the film's release, Harman said, "Yeah absolutely. We've decided to restrict all our flamboyance to the film. But we did have a fairly glamorous premiere at London's Feltham theatre. We had only two days to prepare for the event. And we did our best. Considering the limited time given to prepare we managed well."
