Actor Sanjay Dutt was much in demand at the launch of the music for the film Azaan, on Tuesday night at a suburban hotel. Unfortunately, the actor disappeared from the venue after his brief appearance on stage and did not even oblige the press with a photo-op or sound bytes.
The film, directed by Prashant Chaddha, stars newcomer Sachin Joshi from Goa and Playboy model from South Africa, Candice Boucher. Playboy pics?
No! We won’t share “those” pictures with you here but they are freely available on the net if you Google her! :)
The evening saw live performances by Kailash Kher, Shweta Pandit and brothers Suleiman and Salim Merchant. Suleiman was spotted playing a funky instrument called the Zen Drums and he’s probably the only musician to possess it in India.
Supporting him in the audience was his stunning wife Reshma, who worked it in a fab jumpsuit by MaxMara.
The only peeve was that the stage where they all performed was too far from the crowd and it was like we were back at a rock concert in our college days where we were kept twenty feet away from the performers.
Spotted at the event were singer Shibani Kashyap, model Sushma Reddy, actors Aarya Babbar and Ruslaan Mumtaz, Bhojpuri star Ravi Kishan, actor Dalip Tahil (he acts in the film) and sisters Gauhar and Nigaar Z. Khan.
