Yes IIFA Weekend came and went…it was spectacular! Toronto had bollyfever coming out of it’s waaaazu…everyone has reported on it and really it was quite a remarkable experience! I will eventually get to talking about all that went down at IIFA weekend.
The BIG news however is that Academy Award winner and one of my favorite actors ever Hilary Swank said “Hi”to me on the IIFA Green Carpet. Oh Yes she did! In the middle of her interview while answering a question forBBC World News, she spotted the traveling black chick – 1 of only 2 black chicks in a sea of reporters- she looked at me and said ‘Hi’. I can’t tell you why? Maybe I seemed out of place leaning over the media fence in prime position next to the BBC reporters. Or it could have been my lovely smile or maybe my intense stare-down of her..no one knows but what can be certain is that Hilary Swank said ‘Hi’ to THIS travelin’ black chick! Oh yeah and she also spoke about her impressions of the IIFA’s and her view of Indian Cinema.
I know you saw the hi!.Anyways that’s not all!!!? Oh No not at all…next on our hot adventures at the IIFA’s…Cuba Gooding Jnr winked, yes he winked at your girl! Not once but TWICE! Again I can’t tell you why. He might have had an OMG it’s a Black Chick on the Green Carpet at a Brown event moment! or again the lovely smile and irrisitible good looks who knows but what is certain is that he Winked at me…TWICE! LOLOL And of course expressed his very real interest in doing Indian Cinema.
My experience with Bollywood actors was no less interesting…especially when you count the fact that I asked one of my ultimate Favorite actors how filming has been going on a film he is not even in!!!! Thankfully the handsome Arjun Rampal was gracious about my error and simply corrected my MAJOR faux pas!
Toronto’s Lisa Ray says Bollywood puts TIFF on notice, a handsome but tired SRK shares his vision for a better world; Omi takes in Toronto, and the Queens of Bollywood, Shilpa Shetty, Bipasha Basu, Sonakshi Sinha andGenelia D’Souza all gush over the love received in Toronto! See Highlights from the travelin’ black chick’s IIFA Adventures below
The Videocon d2h IIFA weekend overflowed with tons of inspiring moments. The weekend was chockfull with everything great from Indian Cinema. The music, the films and of course we can’t forget about the stars. The travelin black chicks were on the Green Carpet for IIFA Rocks, the World Premier of Chillar Party and the biggest Green Carpet of all the Floriana IIFA Awards. The fans came out in droves to support their favorite stars end well worth the long hours and jockeying for space that being a pseudo-paparazzi demands!
