April 12, London: London’s Leicester Square is ready to roll out the red carpet for the premiere of Gurinder Chadha’s It’s a Wonderful Afterlife, today at 6pm at the Odeon West End. Hosted by the film’s UK distributors ICON, the event will see the film’s lead couple Golday Notay and Sendhil Ramamurthy walk the red carpet. Notay will be seen in her svelte avatar after having lost all the weight that she had put on for the film. Ramamurthy will be accompanied by his British-Polish actress wife Olga Sosnakova both of whom flew in to London from LA last evening.
Joining them will be the film’s director Chadha along with the cast comprising Sanjeev Bhaskar, Zoe Wanamaker and Jimi Mistry, to name a few. The red carpet affair is expected to be attended by London’s glitterati including Camilla Rutherford, the Grewal Family, Lisa Butcher, Liz McClarnon, Mica Paris, Nitin Ganatra, and the Andrew Lloyd Webber find, Preeya Kalidas.
The London premier will be followed by a regional Birmingham premiere on April 14th, making It’s a Wonderful Afterlife among the few films to have two UK Premieres.
The film releases in the UK on 21st April and in India on May 7th. It is an Indian Films and Bend It Films presentation in association with Studio18.
