Last weekend City 1016 and MTV held a contest on Breakfast No 1 where we picked one lucky listener to fly to Mumbai for a whirlwind 24 hour trip to watch the first ever MTV Video Music Awards in India. Barkha texted in on my show saying she was celebrating her birthday the day before the VMAs and was in desperate need of a break from her mum-routine, and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Mother's Day than to fly her down to Mumbai for an evening with the stars.
Our evening began with meeting Kailash Kher – who was at the VMA’s with his adorable son, who has definitely inherited his curls.
Mika Singh walked in soon with his sunglasses and yellow scarf – looking just the same!
Imran Khan and Vir Das hosted the event and I must say I've never met funnier Bollywood stars. They had me rolling on the floor with their wry sarcastic sense of humor!
Aysuhman Khuranna has really been working out – LADIES! Watch out for this boy! His shoulders are about thrice the size of what they used to be!
Kunal Roy Kapoor on the other hand has lost loooooads of weight since Delhi Belly – maybe its all the orange juice?
Meeting A.R.Rehman was undoubtedly the best part of my week, month, year, maybe even life! He walked in – so unassumingly, took his seat, and in that trademark Rehman way – calmly answered every question the press threw at him. In fact, he even said that ‘Bhakti’ or devotion was an essential part of every album he recorded and for him music was a spiritual journey.
Sonu Nigam was there as well, and performed his award-winning song – Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin for us dedicating it to his mother who passed away only a few weeks before.
All in all, an evening to remember courtesy Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar, the MTV Vjs – Nikhil Chinapa, Raghu, Bani and Anusha, and of course the great Rehman, who played DJ for the night!
If you'd like to know more about the evening make sure you tune into City 1016 to hear the interviews and watch MTV India on April 13th to watch the telecast!
