Season of Star-Studded Events

2010 has been a starry season so far, with high-profile celebrities hitting town for inaugurations and grand openings. It’s been just two months & a couple of days into the new year but 7 film celebrities have already made appearances.

January 5
The first starry event of 2010 was Mammootty at the M.G. University Youth Festival.  A feverish Mammootty addressed the active youth at the Thirunakkara Maidan.

January 14-17
Then it was the flower show. Opening day featured Kunjacko Boban; Navya Nair and Suraj Venjaarammoodu in the next two days and Jyothirmayi on the final day.

February 14
It was then Mohanlal’s turn and there was the Malabar Gold Kottayam showroom opening. The event witnessed crowd in un-manageable sizes.

Mammootty in Town. University Youth Festival is On.

Bharath Mammootty was in town today to inaugurate the M.G. University Youth Festival 2009. The event will run till January 9th as Thirunakkara Maidan as the main stage, and 5 other  stages set up at the 3 colleges РBaselios, CMS, and BCM.

Though we couldn’t make it to the ‘press’ area through the insanely-packed crowd we did manage to absorb the spirit at the venue.

That’s some real crowd!
