Since the time The Raaas’ first teaser got released, one question has been reverberating in Nagpur – When is Kartik Aaryan visiting The Raaas? Finally, the wait is over, as the Nagpurians will get to see the current Bollywood heart-throb Kartik Aaryan at ‘The Raaas’ today. Kartik, who rose to fame with his famous ‘love rant monologue’ and brilliant performance in 2011 romantic comedy ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama,’ got established as a Bollywood A lister, by giving a super hit film ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ earlier this year. Such is the pull of Kartik’s stardom that tickets, for today’s garba at ‘The Raaas,’ had got sold out days ago. Then, due to a huge demand, the organisers had to make special arrangements to accommodate more garba enthusiasts at the venue.
Last night (the fifth night of Navratri celebrations) also, the Nagpur’s biggest garba – The Raaas – was jam packed as scores of garba enthusiasts made a beeline to catch a glimpse of TV star Dilip Joshi (Jethalal of ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah). Joshi seemed to be quite elated to celebrate Navratri with his fans at The Raaas, which is being held at The Empress Palace at Wardha Road. Scores of members of Nagpur’s Gujarati community were seen mingling with their favourite ‘Jethalal’ at ‘The Raaas.’
As the garba season reaches its peak, ‘The Raaas’ becomes a hot favourite destination for the garba enthusiast of Nagpur. The (star studded) Raaas remains the biggest garba venue in the city, as in coming days, we are going to witness more Bollywood stars like Sohail Khan, Varun Sharma (Fukrey Fame), Aayush Sharma (Loveyatri Fame), etc. enjoying garba at The Raaas. Garba players will also get to groove to the foot-tapping numbers by famous singers like Tulsi Kumar, Rahul Vaidya and Gajendra Verma in coming days.
Conceptualised by Varsha Kukreja and Jeetesh Rakheja, The Raaas is being organised in association with Nagpur’s number one digital news channel ‘Nation Next’ (as the media partner), and the event is being sponsored by certain topmost brands like T Series, Shreeji Tours and Travels, Blive Entertainment, Kukreja Infrastructure, Black Sword Furniture, Madhuban Village, Sandesh Group, Batukbhai Sons Jewellers, Kutz and Ankit Jewellers.
