Rani, Saif give orphan children an evening to remember

Mumbai, May 24 (IANS) Children of a few orphanages here were treated to a memorable evening when Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji and other members of Yash Raj Films' forthcoming movie "Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic" sang and danced for them.

Children from eight orphanage homes across the city Friday evening gathered at Bhaidas Hall here to meet Saif, Rani, Amisha Patel, director Kunal Kohli and music directors Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.

"Thoda Pyaar..." is about four destitute children.

"Film stars perform at every event. This time, I decided why not give these children a chance to have fun and make them stars of an evening," said Kohli, who has also co-produced the film.

The evening was marked by a soulful performance from the film track by the composer trio who have scored the music for the movie. Saif, who plays the lead character in the film, also performed for the children.

"It is a dream come true. I could never think that Rani didi would dance with me on the same stage. Saif uncle offered me gifts. I will never forget this evening," said a 12-year-old girl from an orphanage.

Rani, who personally interacted with many children and offered them gifts, was an instant hit with the children.

Commenting on the event, Rani said: "Children always fascinate me and I enjoy being with them. They are the most beautiful creations of god."

Highlighting the basic premise of the film, Kohli said: "The film's story revolves around four orphaned children and has the elements of magic, love, emotions and fun."

Added Rani: "It is also about a business tycoon who never got love in his life, four children who are in need of love and an angel who can't love. My role is of an angel sent by god who comes there to bring smile and happiness in their lives."

A situation comes when the four orphans come under the same roof with the business tycoon played by Saif.

"The film also stars Rishi Kapoor and Amisha Patel in a special role," Kohli said.

Compared to Yash Raj Film's earlier movies, this one is made on a low budget. The cost of the film is less than Rs.200 million and has been shot in Delhi, Los Angeles and Bangkok. It is scheduled to hit the theatres June 27.
