The Mardaani Event...courtesy Blogadda

You already saw what I wore at the Mardaani Screening..now let me share some pics of the Meet with you.
This is also the first time, I am sharing my uncropped pics with you on the blog. :)

First of all I would like to thank Blogadda for the #Mardaani contest.
It was a fantastic initiative to bring stories of real life Mardaanis to the forefront.

I read many of the entries and was so impressed and inspired by most of them.

Four Bloggers from India were selected as Winners who got to a attend a special screening of the Movie Mardaani at Yash Raj Studios and meet Rani Mukherjee.

Keyur Seta From Mumbai
Shankar Bhattacharya From Kolkata
Rahul Prabhakar from Delhi and of course
Aditi Ganatra from Mumbai
Made the cut. :)

The Movie was a hard hitting one with lots of action and drama.
I was completely engrossed during the entire movie, and the lack of songs just made it even more impactful.
You feel sad and even scared to see the sorry state of girls who are kidnapped for sex trafficking and realize it is like a sinking hole from which you can never escape.
Rani is Terrific. She is the Hero of the movie. This has to be her best performance till date.
Tahir Raj Bhasin as the ruthless and gory mastermind behind the sex trafficking racket delivers a stellar performance in his second movie.
All in all, I loved it and I highly recommend seeing it atleast once.

After the movie, we gorged on some delicious Maharashtrian delicacies like Kothimbir Wadi, Sabudana Wada, Misal Pav, Batata Wada and Sheera served at the YRF Studio. I wonder what inspired them to set up a Maharashtrian spread; but whatever the reason, we loved it to too much.
Then came the moment, when the Queen Bee of Bollywood, Rani walked in to meet and greet the Winning bloggers as well as some Twitter and Facebook contest winners.
Dressed in an oversized Pink Kurti she looked elegant and pretty.

And for those friends and readers who wanted me to find out, if she looked pregnant or not..?
Please note ...she did not. She looked quite lean and fit in person, however in the pictures she does appear a bit big. But there are definitely no signs of a tummy yet.

We got a chance to ask her a few questions and then click pictures with her.
Even though she met us for only a few minutes, the entire event was a memorable one, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It was awesome meeting all the bloggers along with the Blogadda Team ..as it is always a pleasure to meet like minded people over food and movies.
So Blogadda if you are listening...Keep the blogger meets coming...! ;)

Now lets move on to the fun part...The pictures..!
The Ganesh Mandir at the entrance of the YRF Studio.

Selfie with Rani...Thanks to the Selfie Guru - Rahul.
The Moment.. I will cherish for life.
V for Victory..!
I also want to make a special mention of Keyur Seta for sitting beside me without complains for the entire duration of the movie, while I kept screeching and screening whenever a violent and bloody scene came up on the screen. Keyur...You are a good man and I salute your patience. :)

Until we meet next time...keep rocking guys.
