Well the idea happens to be exactly the same. Rakeshh Paaul on Saturday night announced his new venture with partner and long time friend Captain S. Nangia to take their friendship one step ahead and become business partners with the launch of their new production house Sailor Today and Rakeshh Paaul PRODUCTIONS at The 8th Annual Sailor Today Seafarer Awards held at Ramada, Powai.
The show was compeered by the beautiful Nasuheen Ali Sardar who looked ravishing in the purple gown and matching her well enough was co-host, the ever witty Siddharth Kannan who gave the shippies a hearty time and kept them entertained through the night while Munisha Khatwani hosted the red carpet.
With performances by Nigaar Z Khan and Karishma Tanna and some Argentinean Tango, the stage literally took to fire with a fire dance by a group of Russian Dancers. But who took the cake were Rakeshh Paaul and Captian S. Nangia when they arrived on stage to announce their venture beginning with a dance performance to Do You Wanna Partner. The production house will delve into everything from ads, television, films, events and what will stand out will be the connection with Merchant Navy in every project of theirs to promote shipping to the world.
Also present were Tabassum, Satish Kaushik, Shahi Ranjan, Kavita Kapoor, Delnaaz Paul, Raghu with wife, Rajeev Paul, Sooraj thapar, Industrialist Anil Murarka, Rajesh Kumar, Prashant Chainani, Simple Kaul, choreographer Seema Desai, Dipsshikha, Smita Bhansal, Keerti and Sharad Kelkar, Pawan Shankar with wife, Anang Desai, and more. The event was followed by dinner and party.
