NEW DIMENSIONS: Guests at the Manish Arora show in Paris included British singer Bishi Bhattacharya, who stars in the Indian designer’s short film “Holi Holy,” which was screening Thursday night as part of an event held by A Shaded View on Fashion Film at the Palais de Tokyo.

Directed by Bharat Sikka and based on a concept and story by Arora, the film was shot on location in India and features the marginalized widows who live in the temple town of Varanasi.

Bhattacharya said she would be performing some sections from her new show “Albion Voice: Live” at the screening. “I perform in front of a screen of immersive visuals and it becomes a 4-D experience,” said the singer.
