Are you ready for some good old Bollywood gossip from Riteish Deshmukh‘s Marathi film premiere? I thought so :) So Balak Palak launched last night at PVR Juhu and our spy was on the scene to grab all the celeb gossip you love to hear, so listen up!

I’m told Abhishek Bachchan and Vivek Oberoi came face to face but diplomatically avoided saying hello (it was still super awkward though.) Why? Vivek used to date Aishwarya Rai remember? Aha!

Also, Sajid Khan and girlfriend Jacqueline Fernandez remained attached at the hip throughout the evening (I wonder if she’s going to change her mind about marrying him anytime soon?!)

The guest-list included several TV stars (Riteish’s bhabi Honey Deshmukh‘s friends) But the cutest part had to be Genelia Deshmukh (as she now clearly likes to be addressed) playing hostess with the mostest for hubby dearest! She was spotted escorting and looking after all of Riteish’s celebrity guests! *Aww* They do seem very much in love everywhere they go and I see she has refreshed those red highlights in her hair too! Do we like?

ANYWAY… What’s the movie like? Check out the trailer below!

Summary: Balak Palak is about four teenage friends (Avya, Bhagya, Chiu and Dolly), who overhear that a friend from their colony, (Jyoti tai) has left their colony because she brought disgrace to her family. Having received unsatisfactory explanations from their parents for Jyoti tai’s exit it becomes their life’s mission to find out what exactly her disgraceful act was! So the kids embark on a journey of discovery. Of course they end up bonding with their older school-mate (Vishu) who enlightens them via his knowledge of “blue films.” He feels, one has to read, watch and if need be, perform to understand the true meaning life. BP is a fun filled drama that will hopefully help parents realize how important it is to communicate transparently with your children.

Oh dear. Are we ready for this? *lol*

One cool thing they’re doing today though is a a first of it’s kind “virtual premiere”. The entire cast will join the interactive virtual premiere on the big screen along with the cinema going public! UFO Moviez, the satellite delivered digital cinema network, will pioneer the ‘Virtual Premier’ at UFO digital theatres in five different locations – Mumbai, Thane, Nalasopara, Pune and Latur at the same time.

Riteish Deshmukh, along with co-producers Uttung Hitendra Thakur and Ravi Jadhav (who is also the director of the film) music directors Vishal-Shekhar, and the children of Balak Palak, will all be stationed at the Valuable Edutainment central studio, to watch and interact with the audiences in all UFO digital theatres at the same time! The session is expected to last for an hour, followed by the screening of the film.
