    On Friday, 10th November, Lage Raho Munnabhai was screened at United Nations in New York at the Dag Hammarskjold auditorium. This was the first time ever that a full-length feature film in Hindi was screened at the U.N.

    Shashi Tharoor, who introduced the film, warmly welcomed the film to the U.N. and appreciated its role in bringing Gandhi back into the public consciousness. In a humorous vein, he recounted how he was intrigued by the term 'Gandhigiri' in the Indian media and tried to figure out what it meant.

    There was thunderous clapping at the high points of the film, like the pensioner shedding his clothes. The applause at the end of the screening was unending. A vibrant question and answer session followed with director Rajkumar Hirani, writer Abhijat Joshi and actor Boman Irani, who flew to the U.S. for the screening.
