ANOKHI Awards and Entertainment show at Fairmont Royal York Toronto
An evening to remember- Anokhi awards and entertainment show
The red carpet has been rolled out for the special guests. Anokhi felicitated the achievers of the South Asian community in a glamorous event at the gorgeous Fairmont Royal York Hotel. And IsaacImage was present there to cover the glamorous evening.
Let the fun begin
The entire ballroom looked resplendent with huge chandeliers, round tables covered with rich blue fabric and contrasting red napkins.
A shot from above was enough to mesmerize anyone.
The décor also had a nice oriental touch with the big metal vases and elephants welcoming the guests.
Since L’Oreal was one of the major sponsors of this event, a lot of makeup kits were on display. There was a booth where celebs were given makeovers by eminent makeup artists.
The CEO of Anokhi Media was checking her emails even while doing the makeup and that spoke volumes about the hard work and dedication that has gone into making Anokhi Media such a successful name.
It was exciting to see the models getting the makeup. For us, it was a bonanza as we clicked on happily. Everyone was in a light mood and hence didn’t mind posing for us.
The lovely guests started appearing all dressed up and the program started with thanking Anokhi for all the hard work.
As the evening progressed, awards were announced and trophies were given to the super achievers like Pooja Handa, Veronica Chail, Rahul Khanna, and Vivek Shraya. Stand-up comedian Danish Anwar added the fun quotient to the evening. His acts had everyone in splits and we were overjoyed to capture those fun-filled moments in our lenses.
Zameer Rizi crooned a few songs that filled the air with music. He is an excellent performer and won a few hearts with his good looks and lethal moves!
Anokhi took the event to a different level by felicitating people who have made their impact on the society and that included LGBTQ activist and children author.
More glamor and beauty followed when Archana Kocchar came up with her fashion show. We simply had a ball with the camera and took as many snaps as we could.
Can any program by South Asians be complete without bhangra? Nooo. Manj Musik entertained the guests with his peppy music and electrifying dance moves.
After the event got over, the guests relaxed backstage and gave us more opportunities to capture them with their hair down. A lot of selfies and groupfies were taken along with the awards. The evening ended with a party that found the guests enjoying great food and drinks.
We congratulate Anokhi Media for hosting such a beautiful event and bringing into light the commendable work done by the South Asian people.
