As I walked inside Afraa on a busy Friday night, on a Social Friday, the first thing I was asked to do was to check in, and once I did, the fun started.
Social media is now a huge phenomenon, and Afraa’s Social Friday is all about nonstop partying, meeting friends, and bumping into local celebrities while you are at it. I told the bartender to make me something with Vodka, and he got me an interesting twist on a screwdriver, with segments of orange and grapefruit in the drink. Settling down with it, I lazily watched the crowd which went wild to the sound of the latest English and Hindi tracks. From Baby Doll to Robin Thicke, the DJ was on fire, and he played an increasing number of fun songs which made the party a complete and utter sensation.
“The key idea of the party is to have fun, and evoke your social side,” said Tanmay, representing Afraa. “The idea is to have fun, check in through social media like Facebook and Twitter, and you can get drinks on the house!”
In the crowd, I did spot a number of top musicians and actors of Kolkata and I had a chance to interact with them. Everyone seemed to be having fun. There was Jay Singh and Amyt Dutta, two of Kolkata’s rock legends, and they make a fantastic duo on the vocals and guitar. They were joined by guitarist Rohan Ganguli and vocalist Rupsha Sen from The Big Family Blues Ensemble. Tanya Sen, along with fellow members of the band Zoo, were present for the event, and asked fun questions to the crowd which was gleefully answered back in exchange for free gifts.
While the party was booming on the dance floor, outside, on the open terrace, a few members of Tollywood were observed as well. Among them was television and film actor Anindya Chatterjee, whose recent film ‘Belasheshe’ has become a hit in the box office, and he was present with his girlfriend for the event. Also present was actress Parno Mitra, who is known for acting in a number of films, and celebrity model Sonika Chauhan, who was glamourous. Apart from them, a number of popular models were present for the event, and were seen shooting selfies with the crowd.
The games and quiz was hosted successfully by the very beautiful and talented Pamela, who kept the crowd engaged and begging for more. The evening turned out to be a total hit!
