Saw this blurb on Bloomberg today:
Robert Pattinson, the teen idol who stars in the “Twilight” vampire-movie series, will be in Berlin to promote his new film, an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s novel “Bel Ami.” Pattison’s character is a scoundrel who rises through the ranks of 19th-century Parisian society by manipulating and seducing a series of women. The female roles are taken by Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci.
Kosslick warned that as well as Pattinson, Shah Rukh Khan probably will attract large crowds of female fans. The Indian heartthrob is showing “Don — The King is Back.” The Berlinale website has a list of frequently asked questions for Khan’s fans, presumably to avoid a deluge of inquiries.
“Can I contribute artistically in order to enrich the screenings or the appearance of Shah Rukh Khan?” is one such query. “Unfortunately we are unable to integrate such contributions due to organizational reasons” is the festival response.
