Shabana to miss It's A Wonderful Afterlife premiere

By Raymond Ronamai

Shabana Azmi is disappointed. She will not be able to attend the London premiere of her next release, It's A Wonderful Afterlife (IAWA), on April 12 because of her broken leg. She will have to skip another premiere that is at Birmingham on Thursday.

Shabana said, "Apart from the two premieres, I won't be able to attend my mother's book release in London, a discussion at the Nehru Centre, and my first cousin's marriage in London. The doctor had told me my foot would take six weeks to heal."

But this week when the doctor removed Shabana's cast, she couldn't walk. "It was sheer agony so the doctor re-plastered it, and said he couldn't allow me to travel in that condition," said Shabana.

A source said that initially there were talks of Shabana attending the event on a wheelchair or will use crutches.

He added, "The producers of IAWA, Studio 18, were planning to fly her down for the events, but now they have had to cancel all their plans too."

The source added, "Now she will have to wait for Gurinder Chaddha to reach Mumbai later this month and join in the Indian promotion of IAWA, whose Hindi dubbed version is called Mar Jaawaan."
