100 years of Indian Cinema

As Indian cinema is celebrating its 100 years, "Uff Yoo Maa", a fundraiser show for cancer patients, will witness Bollywood veterans like Waheeda Rehman, Asha Parekh and Javed Akhtar recollecting iconic elements of the 100 years of Indian cinema in 100 minutes.

Celebrated names like Tanuja, her daughter Kajol and son-in-law Ajay Devgn, along with Shabana Azmi, Sonam Kapoor and filmmaker-composer Vishal Bharadwaj will come together and share a common platform for the event, to be held here Oct 5.

"An overwhelming number of celebrities have come forward to support the cause, and all have reasons of their own," said Geeta Gopalakrishnan, director, Donor Relationships, Tata Medical Centre.

The evening will witness stalwarts recalling lesser known anecdotes from the past, while music and dialogues of the times will recreate the aura of every decade.

Winners from music reality show "Zee - Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" will croon a medley of songs from the last 10 decades, while renowned singer Usha Uthup will render her most memorable songs.

"Each decade will have a conversation with a celebrity or more in a decade who will relate an unusual anecdote, a dialogue of the decade, and against movie posters of the times, singers will render some of the most memorable songs of the decade. Ten minutes a decade and you have a 100-minute show," said Gopalakrishnan.

There will also be a gala dinner planned by Hemant Oberoi, grand executive chef at The Taj Mahal Palace. He will serve an exceptional menu inspired by Bollywood.

The money raised from the event will be donated for a Rs.350 crore worth not-for-profit hospital Tata Medical Center, built by the Tata Group. The proceeds from the event will contribute towards the expansion of the center's hospital in Kolkata to treat underprivileged cancer patients in east and northeast India.
