The Audio Launch of Lamhaa

in Mumbai was a new experience for me. For one, it happened in a mall. I hear a couple of movies before that had had their audio launch in a mall before but I am not sure if they performed there. But we did. A stage was set up in the atrium of Oberoi mall and there we were getting the sound check done in front of an audience and finally the performance.
My sojourn in Mumbai lasted 3 days and quite some hectic activity, thankfully. I guess if I hadn't had much to do I would not have been too happy with the excess time on my hands and maybe as I have mentioned before I am not a shopping enthusiast. Now that I have picked up some major interest in baking I had made a note of what I needed and what some friends needed which I successfully picked up very close to the home I was staying in there. I would perhaps love a personal shopper like the character portrayed by Cameron Diaz in 'In Her Shoes'. Not that I do much of it now. Anyway, I am digressing. It was great to catch up with Mithoon after all this while and he is more of a spiritually elevated soul now as I noticed. And what an album. Completely in love with it. Here are some pictures from the launch. Do have a listen to the album and if you are downloading, do so legally :)

Ya... I was in mumbai for more than a year...and Malls are the best places to get a chance to see thier fav stars...as all movies would have either audio/film realease in malls...the news would be out just a day before... and we would throng at those places...sumtimes even taking breaks from office hours and ending up working late nit! :)

Madno is beautiful Chinmayi. btw if I can ask...isn't this your first Hindi song for a composer who is not ARR?

Lamhaa is indeed a great album, Chinmayi. I'm pretty sure even the mannequins will be tapping their pedestals! Bechari Bipasha...probably no one noticed her with you in the room =p

Chinmayi Sripada /Chinmayee said...

BriceCold: Yeah right!!! I think most stopped breathing when she entered the room :D

BriceColdPlayOnwards said...

Haha, that's probably due to some kind of delusional sleep apnea. Everyone saw your dreamy figure and their brains told them they were sleeping. This accounts for the drooling as well :)

Chinmayi Sripada /Chinmayee said...

Tooooo MUCH!!!

Nice to hear about your Song in LAMHAA Album & your frequent trips to Bollywood.

BriceColdPlayOnwards said...

Haha, I can only imagine how dumb that sounded to someone with both modesty and a psychology degree! Nannu kshminchanDi! :D

Deepa said...

My goodness Chinmayi... you are really tall!! (how tall are you, btw??)

that was a very pleasant surprise!!

Shwetha said...

Madhno sounded really good!

Btw, dont be mad...but earthy shades/white and blue do more justice to your looks. the green outfit and bling looks a tad loud unless its a chennai crowd. a chic western would have been perfect :) my 2 fashionista cents.
