Film Festivals are of the most important parts of Bollywood business and this year too it is celebrated with grandeur. The fest that allows cinemas from different cultures and backgrounds to gather under one roof, started with utter style. The fest saw some of the leading stars of tinsel town who owned the red carpet like a boss. Stars like Aamir Khan, Sridevi, Karan Johar, Kangana Ranaut, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kabir Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Konkona Sen, Manoj Bajpayee, Imtiaz Ali, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadha and many more were snapped on the much sought after red carpet.

Needless to say they were looking utterly glamorous. It is wonderful to see how stars come together to celebrate the variety of the movies that the festival has to offer. As reported in Firstpost, Imtiaz Ali said, ” Right now, I’m very excited to watch Mukkabaaz. (apart from that) I use MAMI as the occasion to get my hands on very elusive films — films I wouldn’t otherwise get to watch, unless I resort to piracy (which no one should ever resort to)!.” On the other hand Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan said, ” “I’m almost done shooting here; I have about two days of shoot left in Mumbai. Irrfan and Mithila — it’s been a blast working with him.” (ALSO READ: Karan Johar: Nepotism Is Going To Happen, Apologies If You Have A Problem With It)
