Shah Rukh to walk the red carpet at Berlin film fest

BERLIN: The Berlin Film Festival will start with a bang on Thursday, kicking off 11 days of star turns, live music and a race for the Golden Bear top prize, including the international premiere of Bollywood heartthrob Shah Rukh Khan starrer "Om Shanti Om".

The event will begin with the premiere of a Rolling Stones documentary by Hollywood legend Martin Scorsese.

Madonna, Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Daniel Day-Lewis and Indian scion Shah Rukh Khan are among the stars who will follow Scorsese and the self-proclaimed "world's greatest rock'n'roll band" down the red carpet.

The 58th edition will feature around 400 pictures from around the world. "Shine A Light", the Rolling Stones film, will screen out of competition.

And Khan will be on hand for the international premiere of "Om Shanti Om", which is already a smash in India.

Twenty-one films will vie for awards including the latest from Britain's Mike Leigh, Iranian director Majid Majidi, Yoji Yamada of Japan, Hong Kong's Johnnie To and US filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.

A jury led by Greek-French director Costa-Gavras ("Missing") will hand out the prizes at a gala ceremony February 16 before the Berlinale wraps up the next day.

Festival director Dieter Kosslick said the usual gritty fare that is Berlin's trademark would be leavened by a clutch of music-driven films.

"This year the Berlinale will not be excessively political, at least less than usual," Kosslick said. "It will certainly be more musical."

Madonna will unveil her directorial debut, "Filth and Wisdom", a romp starring a Roma punk band.
