Wedding Decors have always been a subject for scrutiny among friends and relatives even flash forward few months of the wedding.

How did they come up with this?

When at Imperial Event & Wedding Planner, brides-to-be, discuss about theme colors on their wedding day their anticipation level makes them talk about something that is vibrant, opulent and over the top at the same time. They had executed work and planning with pastel theme colors and other combinations before but the brides’ anticipation made them crack the idea of colorfulness. And need not to say, they delivered some very classy work after that!

Why colorful on the wedding day?

Setups and decors at wedding ceremonies like Haldi, Mehendi and Sangeet are seen color filled most of the times; but not many choose to keep the colorfulness for their D-Day! They doubt class when it comes to colorful because colors are referred to; as a dhinchak quotient in India. Not many know that “Colorfulness has that dynamism of announcing vivacious ambience to the sacred rituals which one or two combo of colors lack to impart”. So, the more colors there are, the more classy and vibrant celebrations follow!!

So, it’s time to break the stereotypes and paint your dream wedding with potion of colors ‘coz colorful HAS become the new “Classy”.

Bollywood diva Zeenat Aman dazzled the ramp as a showstopper for Jewellery Designer Akassh K Aggarwal. The Muse Room by Akassh K Aggarwal is a celebration of Being a Queen Beyond her Peers. Collection of Jewellery Designer Akassh K Aggarwal comes with a message of celebrating women of all ages- from their teens to their 90’s- who not only have a stellar sense of Living and a knack for making their way in the world but also possess that uncanny ability to know when to act their age and also when to throw the supposed limits of that number.

Zeenat Aman said, “Walking the ramp is always fun. It is a feel good factor when you get the instant reaction from the audience. When Jewellery Designer Akassh K Aggarwal approached me for his show and after seeing his jewellery, I couldn’t say no. I got nostalgic when I walked the ramp on one of my favourite track Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko and dum maro dum at India Runway Week. Akassh is a great person and a very creative designer. His Jewellery is extraordinary and beautiful. It was lovely to be a part of his show and I am obliged to be his Muse. “

‘Massage’ By Rakesh Bedi, a true massage for your emotions!

Massage is a play that really massages your emotions. No words can really express the roller coaster ride of emotions that one goes through while watching the play. From laughter, to the agony of struggle, love, betrayal, guilt, it has heavy doses of everything. The best and the most unique part about this play is that one single person portrays all these emotions and that’s none other than super talented actor Rakesh Bedi.

It’s a monologue and he enacts 24 characters in the play and each one of them is a treat to watch. The ease with which Rakesh gets into the skin of each character is commendable. His voice modulation, his walk, his gestures, his expressions, everything changes in a flash of a second as he walks in and out of one character to the other. I have been watching Rakesh Bedi in movies and TV serials and have always been an admirer of his effortless and spontaneous acting, but to perform alone, non-stop for two hours, without any scope of cuts and improvisations and play so many characters is another level. I truly respect him now as an actor after watching this show and I am sure anyone who ever watches this show cannot ignore the efforts put in by Rakesh to make this show a success. I saw the show last week and here I am writing about it after almost 10 days, because the show kept growing on me, there have been instances where certain scenes of the play just flash in front of my eyes and I long to see it again.


‘MASSAGE’ tells the story of Happy Kumar, a common man who comes to the big city of Mumbai with his pockets empty but dreams of becoming a hero. He passes through ups and downs, successes and failures, hope and despair, joys and sorrows, lanes and by lanes of the city. Rakesh Bedi’s enact of 24 different characters range from a Punjabi film producer to a South Indian actress and a Bihari politician. Happy Kumar leaves the film industry to become a gym instructor and then destiny takes a turn. The title MASSAGE refers to the massage of a person’s emotional state of mind. Though unable to realize his dream of becoming a hero, Happy Kumar is a happy loser. All his characters are noteworthy, but a few need a special mention. His portrayal of Kohli Saab, the producer with over the top Punjabi mannerisms, is simply amazing. The way Bedi changes his voice and his body language, you can actually visualize Kohli, a fat surd who talks loud, drinks a couple of pegs and gets emotional. Though Bedi doesn’t use a single prop to depict all of this, but you can see. His role as Minister’s PA, Pandey with his slurred speech is commendable and I think his best ever. The way he enacts scenes with so much finesse you almost forget that he is performing alone; you can actually visualize the entire scene and see other characters also. The scene where Heroine’s mother molests him in the music room, his walking up the stairs of his chawl, or massaging the back of Mrs. Kohli, every moment can be sensed, felt and seen.


Towards the climax, when Rakesh is reading a letter left behind by his wife Shanta, he exudes so much pain in his voice that your heart reaches out to him.


I feel privileged to not just have seen this show but also met this legendry actor in person where he shared his journey with this show that started 13 years ago. Check out what he had to say

Watching ‘Massage’ was really a massage for all my emotions and I loved it so much that I am eagerly waiting for it to happen again. I would like to thank and appreciate the efforts out in by 3 Bells Productions in getting best of the plays in this two day Mon – Key Shanti Theatre Festival and I look forward to many more events by them. Wishing them luck and 3 cheers for Mr. Rakesh Bedi.
