Center of attention (in the dress) is Bollywood Diva Mallika Sherawat. I had not previously known of her, but of course getting a group photo was the only proper thing to do.
There was literally about 1 minute to prepare for this shot... needless to say as soon as my lights were able to trigger light... we were locked in for photos. Not bad for manually adjusting everything in a split moment. I would have changed a few things if I had more time (and light) — but this works.
