Bipin R Pandit says this year’s show is particularly memorable for him. “I had a desire to celebrate my 22 years’ association with The Advertising Club and there can’t be a better way of a celebration than music. A lot of my industry friends are expected to attend the show.”

Eagerly looking forward to Khumaar: Raj Nayak
“I have known Bipin for more than two decades now, or may be longer,” says Raj Nayak, Founder & MD – House of Cheer. “One thing I can tell you about him is the sheer passion he brings to the table in whatever he does. He is the fulcrum of the Advertising Club and has carried it on his shoulders, working diligently and efficiently under various Presidents with their different styles of functioning. Yet, the output form the Ad Club has been consistent.
“The other side to Bipin,” reveals Raj, is that “he is romantic and his love for old Bollywood music is legendary. His group Khumaar plays songs from stalwarts like Rafisaab, Kishorda, Mukesh, Lata, Asha, Hemant Kumar, Manna De, and others – a real treat for music lovers. I am eagerly looking forward to Khumaar this year in Mumbai. The fact that it is on Valentine’s Day makes it even more special.”
Khumaar… go enjoy it!: Sunil Lulla, CEO – BARC India
“Kummar is not just music. It is music with a story of life, passionately revealed over music, song, humour and stories with rarely known human trivia.
“You will tap you feet. Smile involuntarily. Sing along. Applaud with gusto. Regardless of whether you might know the song or not, be familiar with the characters that Bipin and crew thrust on you, or not, you will come out excitedly and share.
“Bipin knows that advertising and communication is about context, messaging and sharing. With Khumaar he does it with love for brands, media, advertising, marketing, sociology and all the other nutcase referencing of a great time. Go enjoy it!” Sunil says.
