Stylist and now actress Pernia Qureshi organized a special screening of her debut film, Jaanisaar over the weekend in Delhi, for her friends from from the fashion industry.
The occasion was graced by Anupam Dayal, Suneet Verna, Dhruv Kapoor, Bhumika Sharma, Nupur Mehta Puri and many more! The guests were in awe of the film, its design aspect and of course, Pernia’s performance!
A close friend Nupur Mehta Puri said,
The movie is everything you expect from a great artist like Muzaffar Ali. The costumes and jewellery takes you right back to 18th century Lucknow. Pernia looks flawless throughout the film. The movie is a piece of art.
Another notable personality from the fashion industry, Anupama Dayal said,
I totally enjoyed the ambiance created by the film. I went straight to 1877, Pernia looked stunning and danced very well. All in all, it was a stunning movie.
Suneet Varma who has worked with Muzaffar Ali in the past said,
I’ve known Muzaffar Ali since 25 years, and had the pleasure of working on the costumes for his movie, Zooni. His vision as a film maker is exceptional and rare talent- if fine art ever met cinema, then he was the only one to have done it with such sensitivity and brilliance. Pernia with her cultured background and understanding of dance and music was the perfect Noor!
Does this not make you want to make a trip to the 18th century with Noor and Ameer?
