Miramax musical gets off to a late start

NEW YORK — “Post-‘Chicago,’ we were looking for a musical that would be different,” Harvey Weinstein explained on Feb. 9 at the Gotham preem of Miramax’s Bollywood-style epic “Bride & Prejudice.”

Enticing the crowd — which was patiently waiting for the arrival of the film’s stuck-in-Midtown-traffic star Aishwarya Rai — Weinstein added, “If you stay till the end, you’ll see my (acting) debut, in sunglasses. (Helmer) Gurinder Chadha probably gave me what I deserve: the editing room floor cut!”

Taking the stage to entertain the masses while Rai worked the red carpet downstairs were “Bride” thesps Martin Henderson and Daniel Gillies, with Chadha who quipped, “This always happens at Indian events — they’re never on time.”

An after-party at Lotus drew a cadre of young turbaned professionals who danced the night away to a blend of hip-hop, reggae and Bollywood hits.
