It was way back in 1998 that I decided to quit Castrol and join The Advertising Club. It had something to do with my innate abilities of being a good organizer, strong networking skills, urge to do new things, accept challenges, affinity towards language and communication and above all genuine love for people. My 22 years with The Advertising Club has been a truly enriching and fantastic journey. I have had the privilege and distinction to work with the best and most reputed professionals of the industry; be it the President or Managing Committee Members all are stalwarts in their own right.
I’m also extremely happy that by God’s Grace, I continue to contribute in my own way towards the success of The Advertising Club.
My Stage Career had begun since the late 80s much ahead of joining The Advertising Club. Today, its very comforting and satisfying to know that I have put in 34 years on stage either as a professional compere or impersonation artist having worked with best banners all over Maharashtra and many other places.
Today with God’s blessings and good wishes of friends, I own a brand called Khumaar. Khumaar began its journey in 2006 at the WeSchool Auditorium which had a capacity of 250. Its popularity grew every year and I had a happy situation of moving from WeSchool to Savarkar Auditorium that has a capacity of 477 from there on to Manik Sabagriha which had a capacity of 800 and from there on to Ravindra Natya Mandir which has a capacity of 1100.
As Khumaar continues to enthrall a large number of audience, I started harboring a dream of making it a National Brand. Thus, Khumaar was organized in Baroda and Indore with huge success and I’m sure there will be many other cities that will be covered. Today, I take a lot of pride in stating that Khumaar is truly a National Brand as its artists are not only from Mumbai but from Baroda, Ahmedabad, Pune, Indore, etc. It is truly heart warming when hopefuls call me from various places asking to give them a break in Khumaar. Many a singers come home and give auditions.
