Events with Anupam Kher and Shoojit Sircar

With Neena Gupta
August 3, 2015: On Friday (July 31st) I went to Kala Mandir to watch the play Mera Woh Matlab Nahin Tha
With Rakesh Bedi
The play was directed by Rakesh Bedi in which he himself along with Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta acted in it.
Somehow, their play created quite a hype in Kolkata and I have never faced so many requests for entry invites for any other play as I did for this one.
With Madhu Neotia and Anupam Kher
However, that is typical of Kolkata, if you want to do something everybody wants to do it. I liked the play but on a very personal and honest note, I find that the director had overlooked things. 
For example, Anupam Kher was reading a letter of 1982 in the play when he said Kolkata.
Well in 1982 the city was known by its name Calcutta.
At tete-a-tea at the Hyatt Regency
After the play, I hosted a small dinner at the Taj Bengal which was attended by all three of them. 
Amish Tripathi, who was in Kolkata, also joined in as well along with few of my friends from the film and business fraternity.
On Saturday, there was the tete-a-tea event in which Shoojit Sircar was the guest and music director, Anupam Roy, was in conversation with him.
With Amish Tripathi
Shoojit is a good conversationalist and he recounted his early life's experiences in Delhi when he was a struggling to have a foothold in the industry doing all kinds of odd jobs while remaining focused on theatre.
Shoojit's anecdotes, including his interactions with the Big B, were very interesting and informative and had the audience's undivided attention. Shoojit also told the audience why he shifted his daughter to Kolkata from Mumbai keeping in mind the quality of education.
With Vishal Agarwal, Radhika Singhi and Bhawna Agarwal
It is the first time the event was organized at the Hyatt's Presidency Suite and all the guests really enjoyed the ambiance as well as the tete-a-tea event thanks to Britta for providing the Presidential Suite for the event.
In the night, I had dinner at a private residence with a few other friends like Shantanu Moitra, who were in Kolkata, joined us. After dinner, we all went to Toni’s house.
While entering Toni’s place I was sure it would be well past 2.30 am. I was wrong. By the time we called it a day it was 4:30 am.
