Ekta Kapoor's boycott does not seem to have dampened the spirit of the Gold Awards function. This promises to be one gala affair, what with the location being the exotic Mauritius and the event bustling with numerous games and fun-filled activities. Organised by Vikaas Kalantri and Pooja Ghai of White Leaf Entertainment, and Anuj Saxena of Maverick Productions, this is the first international television awards for Indian television.
Most of the guests left on Thursday night, for the three-day event. The first day will probably be the most exciting – the organizers have lined up, for the visitors, volleyball and water polo matches, followed by sightseeing and shopping. A beach party later in the evening seems inevitable.
The awards function itself will be held on the second day, followed by a post event party that will go on till the wee hours of the morning. Shraddha Nigam and Siddharth Kannan will host the Red Carpet event, while Mandira Bedi and Aman Verma will host the awards function. Some of the actors scheduled to perform on stage are Barkha Bisht, Indraneel, Hussain K, Manav Gohil, Shweta Kawatra, Narayani, and Gaurav Chopra. The third day is for the guests to unwind before the journey back to Mumbai.
Looks like this will be the much-needed break that all the actors look for. We bet they will be back with sun-filled fond memories.
