Last night, the 20th edition of MAMI (Mumbai Academy of Moving Image) Film Festival began and just like every year, the red carpet saw many big gubs of the industry present! Festival director and film critic Anupama Chopra was in attendance alongside MAMI chairperson Kiran Rao.
The festival starts on October 25 and lasts until November 1.
Many celebrities made their way in the award show including Aamir Khan, Dulquer Salmaan, Radhika Apte, Tabu, Kalki Koechlin and Rasika Duggal. Veteran directors Rajkumar Hirani and Tanuja Chandra were also there to extend his support to the festival.
Amidst the ongoing MeToo movement, the board of MAMI decided to drop various films by artistes who have been accused of sexual misconduct. Rajat Kapoor’s directorial Kadakh, Anurag Kashyap produced Bebaak, Tanmay Bhat production Chintu Ka Birthday and most recently, Ere Gowda’s Balekempa were all dropped from the film festival.
Everybody looks so shiny and neat, don’t they?
