Still rocking on
Rock On!!! may be half-a-year old,but it is still topping the success charts. This prompted its director Abhishek Gattu Kapoor to throw a party. Everyone from the cast and crew,to friends and colleagues showed up to celebrate the Sunday afternoon away at suburban hotspot,Olive Kitchen and Bar in Mumbai. First to arrive was filmmaker Rohan Sippy wearing a bright orange shirt that perfectly complimented the summer mood. Following suit were Ayub and Niharika Khan,and Purab and Yamini Kohli.

Endless books may be written to raise awareness about Mumbais rich cultural heritage,but ultimately,you need something like music to truly catch peoples attention. Mumbai Sanskruti,a two-day music festival held on the steps of the Asiatic Society building,on March 7 and 8 was one such attempt. Artistes Sivamani,Niladri Kumar,Louis Banks and Selva Ganesh performed at the event which was organised by Anita Garware of the Indian Heritage Society and Shashi Vyas of Pancham Nishad. The audience of music aficionados included some well-known names like actresses Sonali Bendre and Gayatri Joshi and writer Gita Piramal.
