We’re not the only ones keen on getting a dekko at the latest Bond installation. Bollywood celebs proved to be just as enthusiastic about the new flick by coming out in droves for the premiere of “Skyfall” at PVR, Kurla in Mumbai on October 31. While most of us were busy giving the finishing touches to our costumes to celebrate Halloween, B-town waltzed to the venue turned out in select picks from their wardrobes.

Actor Anil Kapoor painted a sharp picture on the red carpet in a black suit with black tie and patent leather shoes.
Madhur Bhandarkar with his wife Renu Namboodiri at Skyfall Mumbai Premiere
Madhur Bhandarkar arrived with his wife Renu Namboodiri. He played it casual in jeans and a blazer but she upped their collective style quotient in a white jumpsuit and a string of pearls.
Sisters Sushma and Sameera Reddy looked chic – the former in a brown and grey maxi with nude heels and the latter in straight-fit black pants, a checked jacket and black pumps.
Other celebrities in attendance included Ashutosh Gowariker, Boney Kapoor, Ramesh Taurani, Manasi Scott, Satish Kaushik, Kabir Khan, Smita Thackeray, Evelyn Sharma, Shibani Kashyap, Amol Gupta, Sandip Soparrkar and Mini Mathur.
Most of the stars were gushing about James Bond, talking about how they had grown up with the ever-youthful, martini-sipping, smooth-talking spy and how watching newer version now still had the magic to bring back memories.
The 007 saga stars Hollywood hotties Daniel Craig continuing as Bond and Spanish heartbreaker Javier Bardem in the role of villain. Critics who viewed it at the world premiere last week in London had high praise for the movie, claiming that it was one of the best in the franchise. It has already raked in over 20 million pounds in mere days. We can’t wait to catch it.
