20 (IANS) After a fairy tale wedding and a busy and eventful year,

Premiere at IIFA lacked luster, Bangkok.
Sarkar Raj was
one of the most awaited movies of 2008 and a grand Premiere was
organized at IIFA Bangkok, so one was expecting the stars to walk the
‘Green Carpet’ but the star turnout was quite poor. Kareena who is
already in Bangkok skipped the Premiere despite the fact that her dad
and Uncle Rajiv Kapoor attended the Premiere. Karan Johar, Apoorva
Lakhia, Shabana and Javed Akhtar were the only few famous face who
showed up for the Premiere, the only consolation for the Bachchans was
the fact that the movie received great reviews.

IIFA was kicked
off Bangkok in a very environmental friendly way as Big B the brand
ambassador of IIFA along with AbhiAsh planted a sapling in Bangkok.
Nobel Prize winner Dr. Rajendra K Pachauri who has promoted the cause of
climate change also joined the Bachchans for the noble cause. Keeping in
sync with the environmental friendly theme the IIFA would be rolling the
Green carpet instead of the famous ‘Red Carpet’.

Bollywood is in
Bangkok for the IIFA weekend and finally the moment that everyone was
waiting for the Award nite, AbhiAsh walked the green carpet and Ash
looked stunning in a red gown. Ranbir walked in with his beau in blue
Deepika who was very shy when Ranbir couldn’t stop praising her. Teenage
heartthrob Aaditya Narayan wooed female fans and Priyanka looked
gorgeous in a pink gown. Kareena won the Best actress award for Jab we
met and she was ecstatic, this is just the first glimpse of IIFA awards
nite and there is more to follow.
seeks divine blessings for ‘Sarkar Raj’ at Siddhivinayak, Mumbai.
The Mumbai heat
didn’t stop the Bachchans from walking to Siddhivinayak; they walked all
the way from Juhu to Prabhadevi to seek blessing of Siddhivinayak. Ash
was dressed in a simple white kurta-Salwar, Abhishek too opted for white
to beat the heat, but Big B sweated it out in his track suit. Sikandar
Kher and Apoorva Lakhia gave company to the Bachchans as they walked
bare-footed from Juhu to Prabhadevi; Jaya joined Big B and AbhiAsh at
the temple. The family took blessings for ‘Sarkar Raj’ from Lord Ganesha
at the temple. Earlier in 2005, Big B and Abhishek had walked to the
temple for ‘Sarkar’ as well which turned out to be a huge hit, and this
time they are hoping that their movie will ‘Raj’ on the box-office as
well with blessing from the ‘Sarkar’ Siddhivinayak.
