Deepa was delighted to see Preity in Dubai. "I didn't expect to see Preity in Dubai at such a short notice. It was very sweet of her to come since Heaven On Earth is as much her film as mine, in fact more hers. Everyone was raving about Preity after the screening last night."
For Deepa, Dubai is a double celebration. "My Heaven On Earth was screened and my my brother Dilip Mehta's film The Forgotten Woman has also been screened. The film has gone to several festivals all over the world. Everywhere it's been raved about. Dubai is no exception. You're talking to one proud sister."
In Dubai Deepa ran into a very old friend. "I met Goldie Hawn. We've known each other for years. We had dinner together on Sunday night. I was introduced to Nicolas Cage. It's amazing how interested they are in our cinema."
