Abhi-Ash to attend Oscars?February 25th, 2011 - 7:43 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Feb 25 (IANS) Bollywood’s star couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, who are currently in Los Angeles for a holiday, will be attending the 83rd Annual Academy Awards Sunday, according to megastar Amitabh Bachchan.”Ya, Abhishek and Aishwarya have been invited by the Academy to attend the Oscars on Sunday so (sic),” Amitabh posted on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com.
Amitabh spilled the duo’s plans while sharing how American actor Warren Beatty met Abhishek at an LA store for fittings.
“Oh! And incidentally they were getting fitted at a clothes store, for the Oscars Award ceremony for Sunday - Warren and Abhishek!,” added Amitabh.
Abhishek, who had been busy with the shooting of “Players” in New Zealand, is in LA for a break with his wife Aishwarya. The couple will also be meeting once Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker, who is also expected to attend the prestigious ceremony.
These apart, music composer A.R. Rahman, who has been nominated for two categories at the Oscar this year, will be attending the event too.
Rahman, who won two Oscars for his work in the 2009 movie “Slumdog Millionaire”, is vying for the golden statuette for the original score of Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” as well as original song “If I Rise” from the same movie, this year. Rahman will also be performing the song at the ceremony.
Meanwhile, the Bollywood fraternity is pinning hopes that the Mozart of Madras brings back the trophies this year too.
India-born British film editor Tariq Anwar is also in the Oscar race with a nomination for his work in the hugely popular historical drama “The King’s Speech”.
