Five years after he missed showing Asoka at the Toronto International Film Festival (the print was lost in transit from New York to Toronto on 9/11), Shah Rukh Khan will have the pride of seeing Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna at the gala section of the festival with the title, Never Say Goodbye.
John Abraham, who became a Toronto heartthrob last year when Water -- starring him and Lisa Ray -- inaugurated the festival, will return with Kabul Express.
The announcement of Kabhi Alvida joining the festival made for some lively headlines: 'Toronto makes song and dance about Bollywood', declared Screen International. "The film marries a Hollywood sensibility to the traditional blockbuster Bollywood appeal," said Noah Cowan, co-director of TIFF, "and ultimately renders a story that examines the full scope of what love has to offer."Arthur J Pais
