Chivas Studio 2012 - Strangers in the Night

When I received an invite to the exclusive Chivas Studio 2012 event this year, my happiness knew no bounds. After all how often does one get invited to a rich blend of cinema, art, installation and music – with the likes of Karan Johar, Rohit Bal and Karsh Kale coming together to showcase their eclectic talent.

Friendship, collaborations and creative brotherhood ushered in The Chivas Studio 2012. This years’ edition saw Karan Johar and Chivas presenting a short film directed by Shakun Batra, a tale of real friendship titled “Strangers in the Night” on the first day. The short movie is a quirky story of two friends with opposing ideas of love and romance and a ll it takes is one night and two strangers to change their beliefs. It marked the promising debut of Mohit Marwah - Anil Kapoor's nephew.

Rohit Bal transformed the lawns into an Urban Mela which was very simply an urban take on rural sensibilities. It was a cutting edge interpretation of the traditional Indian street fair. Rohit Bal had taken the essence of everything conventional in a street fair and given it a twist of urban and modern proportions. There were bird men and puppet looking giant figures walking all over the place(which was kinda scary), giant pin wheels were installed and as a prop each one of us were handed a colourful pin wheel - reminded me of my kiddie days.

The Karan Johar 'Student Of the Year' boys Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Kayoze Irani were in the forefront mingling with everyone along with Karan Johar. Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor were present to cheer for their cousin Mohit while Imran Khan was rooting for his best friend Shakun Batra. Boman  Irani as usual was at his charming best!

All in all it was a brilliant nite with awesome drinks by the renowned bartender Shatbhi Basu and some wonderful company and a great short film.

With the Chivas Studio being a global platform designed to foster creative collaborations between artistes and opinion leaders from various genres, resulting in unique, sensorial experiences and to promote the brand ethos of Generosity, Brotherhood, Luxury and Friendship, I hope to see a lot more in the future from them.
