Big B renders another Holi song:

The invitation came in the form of a bonsai plant. An invitation with a difference!

The party to celebrate the music launch of B.R. Chopra’s BAGHBAN, directed by Ravi Chopra, on Wednesday, August 27 at Hotel Intercontinental The Grand, Sahar, was an equally different affair.

The Chopra brothers, B.R. and Yash, shared the podium after a very long time. Amitabh and Hema Malini, who were working with each other after almost twenty years, were on the dais, talking about their experiences while working in the film. Ditto for Amitabh and director Ravi Chopra, who were working together after ZAMEER [1974], after almost two decades. Amitabh and Salman, who have been teamed for the first time for a film, showered compliments on each other…

Before B.R. Chopra officially launched the music of the film, an audio-visual presentation highlighting important moments from the film were screened for the select invitees.

Like always, it was the Big B who stole the march with his short-n-sweet speech, while speaking about BAGHBAN. Some gems: “Meet Esha Deol’s younger sister — Hema Malini. When I look at her, mujhe sharm-si aa jaati hain. She’s growing younger with each passing day. And here we are. Look at us!

“I wish I was as cool as Salman in real life. Whatever people have to say about Salman, in my opinion he’s a gem of a person with a heart of gold. Very sensitive. Very emotional. I’m always with you Salman.

“Working with Ravi Chopra for BAGHBAN was an enjoyable experience. There has been a tremendous growth in him as a director.”

While talking about the film, Salman did drop a hint about its storyline. “I completely identify with the character I am portraying in this film. I am like this at home. Cool In real life, I only hope we don’t behave like the children in this film,” he smiled.

The august gathering included veterans Sunil Dutt and Shashikala, Ashok Hinduja, Manmohan Shetty, Shyam and Balkrishna Shroff, Raj Babbar with son Arya and daughter Juhi, Overseas distributor Sanjay Jumani, Mukesh Desai [T-Series], singers Nitin Mukesh, Udit Narayan, Sudesh Bhosle… and hand-picked media persons.

Mrs. Ravi Chopra was personally looking after the guests at this classy affair. BAGHBAN has music by Aadesh Shrivastava and lyrics by Sameer. Super Cassettes Industries Ltd. is marketing the music of the film.
