Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt told NDTV that she doesn't regret performing at the much-criticised Saifai Mahotsav but added: "In life, I need to be more aware."
Superstar Salman Khan, who was also amongst the performers at Saifai, says the filmmaker needn't be apologetic about his daughter's "upbringing".
The star-studded premiere of Madhuri Dixit-Naseeruddin Shah starrer Dedh Ishqiya in the city was cancelled on Friday.
Salman Khan has found support about his controversial performance at Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's hometown from an unexpected quarter - fellow superstar Shah Rukh Khan, with who he has been conducting a feud of many years.
Actors Kareena Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha put together a starry show for the audience of Saifai Mahotsav on January 12.
The very air of Saifai, hometown of Uttar Pradesh's first family, glittered with the XXL-helping of stardust doled out by the presence of Bollywood stars Hrithik Roshan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon and Parineeti Chopra who danced - and sang, even - at the annual extravaganza organized by Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's family.
The recently concluded Saifai festival provided enough fodder for the news mills. Many Bollywood stars – from Salman Khan and Madhuri Bhatt to newbies Alia Bhatt and Varu Dhawan - and some popular TV stars performed at the festival organized at Samajwadi Party's chief Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Seen here, Salman Khan arrives at the airport in all his majesty.
