The Mumbai Film Festival began yesterday with Aishwarya Rai inaugurating the festival at Chandan theatre Versova. Aishwarya Rai commented "Kudos to the team and everybody who has made this happen. I knew what was going on and what it took to keep the flag going. I am experiencing the conviction, belief, faith they had to keep this festival going. I take such pride and such an honour to be standing here today and declaring 16th Mumbai Film festival open".
Also seen in the opening ceremony of the movie was Deepika Padukone, who added glamour to the 16th Mumbai Film Festival. Deepika was seen enjoying herself as she clicked selfies with the groups of students around.
Also spotted were Vidhu Vinod Chopra and his wife Anupama Chopra along with Huma Qureshi who seemed to be having a gala time with Deepika. The two ladies were seen joking and giggling together.
The 8 day film festival began with the screening of the internationally acclaimed movie 'Serena' which starred Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in the lead roles. This is just the beginning as the festival has a lot more to come up with.
