Fellowship – 100 years of Indian Cinema

November 28, 2013 divider image

Venue – Hotel Centre Point,Ramdaspeth                  Date – 15th November 2013

If our Rotary Club ever gave up its main purpose of community services, we have a second line of activity ready… Our cultural productions are getting better and better and reaching professional levels… this was amply proved at a beautiful function on Friday, 15th of November at Palacio Hall, Hotel Centre Point, where a huge team of our club… Madhavi Naidu, Rajesh Yadav, Anita Chitaley, Poonam Sethi, Manju Bhatia, Sohrab Kanga, Dinesh Naidu, Aeyjaz Akolawala, Reema Sial, Monica Bhagwagar, and Behram Patel got together to put up a show for us and the visiting Mauritian guests.. as this year coincides with 100 years of Indian Cinema, the theme was “BOLLYWOOD THROUGH THE AGES”.

The show kicked off with an audio/ visual presentation by Vilas Kale, which lead us through many years of Indian Cinema with interesting anecdotes. The main show was a visual treat  with dancers depicting songs right from the time of silent movies, with all the grace of black and white, to the current time of the jhatak matak and masala. More than 60 participants from our club shook a leg,  the usual suspects ie – Shilpa Agarwal, Sunita Salve, Vinita Pasari, Shriya mokadum, Raj Shah, Akash Agarwal, Mahendra Kamat were ofcourse as good as always,  but also refreshing were the many new faces like Gogi Bhasin, Litesh Thakker, Dipti Pandhi, Shantala Bole, Sonal Singhvi and many veterans among them… the Kale’s, Shahani’s and Chitaley’s, all looked beautiful, dressed in fantastic costumes, danced to roar’s of approval from the very enthusiastic crowd.

The show was made funny  by anchors – Prateek Salve, Aarti Anand and Sandeep Dhodapkar. Madhavi, who put the show together, is the new Deepa Mehta of the club.  With this show, she has put the club on “FIRE”.   Now can WATER be far behind ????
