Hot on the heels of Salman Khan’s date with Dubai, one-time rivals of the superstar, Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapur are jetting into the emirate for the world premiere of their Bollywood film, “Teri Meri Kahaani”.
The duo will be here on June 20, with a press conference for the media, followed by a visit to the Al Noor School for children with special needs.
But fans who want to see the stars in person need to start lining up at Vox Cinemas, Mall of Emirates from 7.30pm, as the stars are expected to walk the red carpet for the film’s screening at 8pm, with two lucky winners from the crowd being handpicked to meet their stars on stage.
Premiere tickets are up for grabs for this who want to be inside the two screens that will beam the films simultaneously.
The promotions will continue into the night with an After Party at It’s Mirchi nightclub, Ramee Royal Hotel, Bur Dubai at 11:30pm.
The stars will depart the same night at 2:30 am for the premiere in London and Toronto the following days.
Teri Meri Kahaani” seems to be heavily banking on the lead pair’s on again, off again off-screen romance that has exhausted writers and fans of Chopra and Kapur.
While director Kunal Kohli’s romcom does promise a unique telling of three love stories across different eras in one single package, it will take more than just off-screen gossip to get viewers to vouch for “Teri Meri Kahaani’s” credibility, say insiders.
Following close on the heels of this starry visit, the Empire Films release “Bol Bachchan” will see its stars, Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Prachi Desai in Dubai around July 2.
As for the “Cocktail” stars, Khan, Padukone and Diana Penty are expected here mid-June for a promotional campaign – including mall and nightclub visits – in the lead up to the romcom’s global release on July 12.
