After Indore, next on the radar to get its first taste of Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi’s Grazing Goat Pictures upcoming film ‘Fugly’ was Textile City, Ahmedabad.
The star cast - Mohit Marwah, Vijender Singh, Kiara Advani and Arfi Lamba - commenced their journey with a Press Conference at the Eastin Hotel in Ahmedabad where they addressed the local media and shared their experiences and memories from Fugly and why the fans should watch the film.
Post the Press Conference, the stars treated themselves to some traditional Gujarati delicacies at Govardhan Thal in the city centre where they were greeted by the hospitable staff and a few enthusiastic fans.
This was then followed with a last minute surprise visit to a Vacation Expo at the famous GMCD grounds. Vijender Singh seemed particularly excited about the visit due to his love for sports. The stars treated the crowd at the Expo to an impromptu jig on the title song, Yeh Fugly Fugly Kya Hai, which received a great roar from the onlookers! The surprise element was when the star cast broke into the traditional Garba routine which was greatly appreciated by all the people gathered at the venue.
The stars concluded their visit to the city with a quick tour to the local market where they tried out the traditional out fits amidst fans that were anxious to get a glimpse of their favourite stars. Kiara, Mohit, Vijender and Arfi interacted with the fans and seemed overwhelmed with the warm reception from the city on the whole.
‘Fugly’, directed by Kabir Sadanand, is shot extensively in Delhi and the breath-taking locations of Leh. It is a story of four friends: Dev, Devi, Gaurav and Aditya and how this carefree bunch, at the threshold of their lives, get caught in a ‘Fugly’ incident, which sucks them slowly into the big bad world of corruption, politics and the real society in the capital. The entertainingly original Fugly is wacky, kitsch and puts the best of friends through the most bizarre events of their life - the game is FUGLY!
Fugly is also the launch pad for Mohit Marwah, Olympic medalist Boxer Vijender Singh, Kiara Advani and Arfi Lamba, the freshest faces to join the film fraternity. They will be making their debut in style along with the supremely talented Jimmy Sheirgill, who will be seen in one of his most powerful performances ever.
