This year, the Jio MAMI 17th Mumbai Film Festival With Star India introduces the Movie Mela – a one-day celebration of cinema. On Saturday, October 31st, when delegates of the festival walk into Mehboob Studio, they will enter a different world – a world of movie characters, movie merchandising and above all, movie conversations.
Bollywood has long been infamous for rivalries and catfights between actors but does that still hold true? In a special discussion titled ‘Bollywood: The Next Five Years’ leading next gen actors – Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, Kriti Sanon, Aditya Roy Kapur, Ayushmann Khurrana and Arjun Kapoor will come together in a discussion moderated by Anupama Chopra and Rajeev Masand that explores how the landscape of Bollywood is evolving, what has changed and what has not and throw some light on the changing paradigms that are defining the future of the industry.
The Jio MAMI Movie Mela With Star India is a platform for movie fans to connect with the films, actors and filmmakers they love. The one-day event, which is open to all delegates of the Jio MAMI 17th Mumbai Film Festival with Star India, is choc-a-bloc with filmy sessions and activities.
