What a week it’s been! The finest stars were in town to attend the Arab Indo Bollywood Awards 2015 and I was invited to go along and meet some of the esteemed guests.
I don’t know a lot about the Bollywood movie industry, but I do know a few of the really big names like Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh and Remo D’Souza. I was especially happy to meet Anil Kapoor, who starred in TV show 24 and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. He was a really nice guy and even offered me some acting advice on how to be in front of the camera and how to memorise a script faster.
The awards were fantastic and the colourful and elegant outfits that the attendees wore were spectacular. I have to say Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra was particularly beautiful and it’s great to see that she’s so humble even though her career is going from strength to strength. Priyanka has just signed up to do a new TV show in America so she’s on the up Stateside and I’m sure she’s destined for big things! Having recorded tracks with Pitbull, Neyo and will.i.am she also wants to diversify her music by working with as many different artists as possible.
With so much talent Priyanka agreed to re-enact a little scene with me from her hit movie Don 2. I thought I was pretty good, but her assessment of my acting skill involved the words “terrible”, “rubbish” and “awful” so I don’t think I’ll be starring in a Bollywood blockbuster anytime soon.
