Indian stars made their presence at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival recently.

While Anurag Kashyap was there for the screening of his film Gangs Of Wasseypur 2 with producer Guneet Monga, it really was the team of Deepa Mehta's screen adaptation of Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children that stole the show.

Here's looking at the grand attendance from the films' stars.

Filmmaker Deepa Mehta posed for pictures with author Salman Rushdie, who looked pretty pleased to be at the premiere.

Rushdie's acclaimed novel was published in 1980, over three decades before Mehta decided to make a screen adaptation of it.
