limos brought them to the city centre and they were met with photographers
flashbulbs as they emerged in their glittering outfits.
Office workers going home in the
rush hour were agog trying to work out just what was going on. They
stretched their necks to get a better look.
It was great fun. Pupils from King
Edward VI Handsworth Girls School, and King Edward Boys' in Aston
packed the pavements along with their parents and teachers to celebrate
the film premiere of 'Obsession' - the Bollywood film they perceived
and helped make, along with SAMPAD.
We were there along with our cameras to bring you a photo gallery
of the evening's events.
|Star of the hit
film 'Anita and Me', Chandeep Uppal was Special Guest.
Pupils from the schools acted in
the film and helped in all aspects of production. The 'stars' arrived
by limousine with special guest Chandeep Uppal from the hit film
'Anita and Me'.
The red carpet was lined with pupils
- all of whom took part in some way - dressed in their finest outfits
and screaming with pop idol pleasure everytime one of their colleagues
entered the building.
|Rush hour traffic
saw an amazing scene outside the cinema.
The project came about because of
King Edwards' Girls' Headmistress, the devoted Miss Insch, and her
desire for her school to receive Performing Arts Specialist status.
Last night she announced mission accomplished to a standing ovation
in the cinema auditorium.
To find out how the film was made
and about the organisations involved - maybe you'd like to have
a go yourself - take a look.
