Several members of the cast including Raghubir Yadav (Chillum), Hansa Vithal (Manju Golub) and Shaukat Azmi (Brothel madam) were in attendance.

On this occasion, Nair released the new trailer of her latest The Reluctant Fundamentalist which will open in Indian theatres on May 10.

“I began filmmaking with the ideological question of whether art can change the world and then Salaam Bombay! led to the formation of the Salaam Baalak Trust,” Nair said about her debut film which won a Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival 1988 and was nominated for an Academy award in 1989.

Nair said she was happy to bring the film back to the young audiences in India.

Nair and Taraporevala also re-released the book “Salaam Bombay!” originally published by Penguin in 1989.
