Walking the Red Carpet

Actress Ayesha Dharker and director John Jeffcoat walk the red carpet for a Gala screening of 'Bobby' at the Dubai International Film Festival.
Adding exotic appeal to the event was a host of celebrities from the sub-continent, including Ayesha Dharker. The actress, 28, had just flown in from her base in London for the event and was looking stunning in a purple halter-neck dress.

Here to support her film Outsourced, being screened at DIFF this week, she said: “This is part of the fun and the great thing about being in the acting business is that it changes from one day to the next. I have always supported independent films and I have often chosen them over Bollywood before.”

Cinematical Review

"Jeffcoat and cowriter George Wing (50 First Dates) are careful in the film to portray Indian culture without stereotyping; as strange as Todd finds his new surroundings upon his arrival, to the Indians he has come to live and work among, it is he who stands out as odd."

Variety Review of Outsourced

"this unaffected charmer treats a hot-button contempo issue with old-fashioned grace and benevolent wit, rendering it a sure-fire word-of-mouth crowd-pleaser at fests, in first-run and on ancillary."
