Author Dr.Afshan Hashmi attended the Red Carpet with film-makers and actors around the globe in Washington DC South Asian Film Festival 2015
Bollywood, Hollywood and film personalities around the globe have always fascinated me, I love Creativity and Innovation. My first book The Modern Mughal Mentality ( http://afshanhashmi.com/the_modern_mughal_mentality1/ ) is about Creativity and Innovation and it is already a best-seller on Amazon in a category.
On September 25 I attended the opening night gala and walked the red carpet with filmmakers and actors from around the globe in Washington DC South Asian Film Festival 2015 (DCsaff). The opening film of the festival was Bonjour Ji and SAARI RAAT ( https://dcsaff.com/opening-night-2015/ ). I loved both the movies.
Since childhood I always admired Aparna Sen and yesterday loved to interact with her as well as dined with her.To know more about DCsaff please visit their website: (https://dcsaff.com/category/dcsaff2015/).
Here is the you tube link of one my memorable moment from Yesterday’s event::
Here are some photographs of the event:
The film festival was opened by very good friends of mine Frank Islam and Debbie Dreisman. Frank is from the same university where I have studied in India the prestigious Aligarh Muslim University (http://www.amu.ac.in/). I felt very proud last night that Frank Islam (http://frankislam.com/ )and myself Dr.Afshan Hashmi ( http://drafshanhashmi.com/ ; http://www.afshanhashmi.com/ )two Aligs ( Aligs are people who have studied at Aligarh Muslim University) walked the red carpet with so many dignitaries.
Cheers and Enjoy reading it and let me know your thoughts!
