I happened to attend a meeting in Delhi on official work….The meeting was scheduled for a Friday evening. Tickets were booked back home the same night at about 2 am from the airport. Dressed up for the meeting i was waiting in the lobby of the Hotel when the board of directors were about to arrive. A sudden pop up message showed up on the notification screen of my Iphone, when i realised a long lost friend from college days who was a base guitarist was trying to connect through me. There was a smile across my face when i realised she was performing the same night for an elite class socialite wedding reception about 5 blocks away from the hotel building i was sitting in.
Excited to meet her i was jumping in my place and forgot about the meeting. I don’t even recollect when the meeting started and wrapped up. All i know was how anxious and dreamy i was about the night performance and even more after she mentioned the Popular and energetic singer Anushka Manchanda being a part of it.
Launched into the Bollywood playback scene with her first super hit song Golmaal, she was hailed as the voice of the new generation and has worked with the hottest music directors in the country from Vishal-Shekhar, Salim-Suleiman, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to Jigar-Sachin, Pritam and Amit Trivedi.
On reaching the venue i realised it was going to be one heck-of-a-night! Music and a great crowd but something was missing indeed……ummm what about dance??? And there the award winning performer Allu Arjun joined in on stage:
- 12008 Parugu Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Telugu
- 22011 Vedam Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Telugu
- 12004 Arya Nandi special jury Award
An absolute livewire on stage, both of them had the audiences gasping at their high energy performances. They have been known to perform night after night without the tiniest drop in their power packed presentation.
With memories in mind i did not really want to leave the place as the crowd was in full gusto and happening like never before. With a happy heart i boarded onto the flight and couldn’t wait to come back and tell my friends about the unexpected encounter that i had that was a memorable night i wouldn’t forget for a long time.
I can’t wait for another such night in my Life again where music and dance keeps me engaged, forgetting anout everything else around and having a merry time….A power packed combo indeed!
