The Wolf of Wall Street – A private screening in India. And, that too before the films actually releases Worldwide. Can’t get better than this! It was a rally of Bollywood stars yesterday at Imperial studios in Andheri, Mumbai as they came to attend the screening of the Leonardo DiCaprio starrer. Anurag Kashyap organized this special screening night at the special request of Mr. Scorsese. Anurag Kashyap is a huge fan of the legendary filmmaker and had recently met him at the Marrakech film festival, Morocco.
Yesterday, when asked by the media, he said “Martin and I have a great understanding of each other’s work and hence there is mutual admiration we have for each other. It is a great honor to showcase The Wolf of Wall Street in India even before the US release. Martin is somebody who I have looked up to, for many many years now.” He further said that meeting with legendary director at the Marrakech film festival was a great learning experience and one could easily see that’s why he is such a great artist.
It seemed yesterday that Bollywood was keen to watch this movie as actors and directors arrived at the venue. But the arrival of Ranbir Kapoor & Katrina Kaif caused quite a stir. They were soon hounded by photographers and quickly went inside the theatre. Bollywood starlet Anushka Sharma arrived, looking pretty and said that she really wanted to watch the movie. Other Bollywood personalities who came for the screening included Imtiaz ali, Arjun Kapoor, Piyush Mishra, Abhishek Kapoor, Ayan Mukherji and Sarah Jane Dias.
At last, the acting legend, Mr. Naseeruddin Shah arrived with his wife and son to attend the screening. Imperial studios yesterday was filled with glitz and glamor and those who came seemed really eager to watch the film. Quite obvious! When a film bosts of a star cast that includes DiCaprio plus the fact that the film is directed by MartinScorsese, it is bound to attract the glitterati and paparazzi.
