The Jaipur Literature Festival got off to a starry start when legendary lyricist Gulzar read his poetry on the first day (January 19) of the festival. Now, the literature extraveganza has gotten some more celebrity presence as Rishi Kapoor arrived there to promote his autobiography Khullam Khulla. Rishi pointed out the curious fact that even though both stars have had long and vibrant careers in Bollywood, they have never collaborated together on a movie. “Jaipur Lit. Festival with Gulzar sahab this afternoon! The man whom I have never worked with in my 44 years career. Unbelievable feat!” he said. The actor also sang Main Shayar Toh Nahin for his fans at the event.

Baahubali director SS Rajmouli too appeared at the fest to cheering crowds to promote The Rise of Sivagami. “I expected a small gathering at Jaipur Literature Festival. The turnout for the book cover launch of The Rise of Sivagami was overwhelming,” he wrote. The Rise of Sivagami is the first book of the Baahubali: Before The Beginning trilogy, penned by Anand Neelakantan. Rajmouli also unveiled the book’s cover today on Twitter, writing, “Thank u for all the love Jaipur.”

Another Bollywood book that’s found its way to the Jaipur Lit Fest is Karan Johar’s autobiography An Unsuitable Boy, which released only a day before Rishi’s book. Karan didn’t go to Jaipur to promote his autobiography. Twinkle Khanna’s humorous bestseller Mrs Funnybones, which was published in 2015, returned to the fest’s stall as well. The Jaipur Literature Festival will conclude on Monday next week (January 23).
