Dr.Menaka Thakkar presents Narthaki Nataraj!

NARTHAKI NATARAJ from Chennai, India is one of the most remarkable Bharatanatyam dancers to have emerged on the Indian dance scene in recent times. Trained in the Tanjavur style of Bharatanatyam by notable Guru Kittappa Pillai, the last surviving descendent of the legendary "Tanjore Quartet" of the 18th century, Narthaki Nataraj is considered a most important performer and interpreter of the Tanjore repertoire. She has performed in India, USA, UK and Europe and has been widely honoured with including the prestigious Puraskar Award from the President of India and a Senior Fellowship from the Sangeet Natak Akademi, New Delhi, India.  

As a transgender artist, she has an enormous impact that her honoured position carries with it, which is indicative of a basic change in societal values and interpersonal behavior in modern India.

Upcoming Film: Shaandaar!

Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt each hit the big screen for the first time this year teaming up for the romantic comedy SHAANDAAR releasing in North American theaters on October 22. Director Vikas Bahl follows up his award-winning crowd-pleaser Queen with this fun new comedy with edgy humor that puts a twist on Bollywood love stories.

A big fat "Shaandaar" Indian wedding, which is actually a business merger between two of the biggest business families of India, is happening at an exotic castle in Europe. Mrs. Kamla Arora, the grandmother of the Arora family, the sole owner of the billion-dollar business and the property, has planned their wedding. Kamla Arora treats everyone like her servants including her three sons, Bipin (the eldest), Vipul and Vinay. Mr. Fandwani, the groom's father, is a loud Sindhi businessman who is the counter to Kamla Arora: The Fandwanis dress in gold, accessorize in gold and if possible they drink and eat gold.
