About the Event
With the launch of our #PersonalAdvisoryBoards, we are on a journey to be inspired and powered by other talented women from across the globe. We know the feeling of being moved by art and transported to new experiences, emotions and places. #PowerWomenOfIndia is incredibly honoured and excited to have among us the very talented artist, Mahira Kakkar.
Mahira will share with us, her journey from Calcutta to the west and the high of working with acclaimed film-maker Mira Nair in "A Suitable Boy". Mahira is a New York City-based actor who has worked in film, television and theater. Born in Kolkata she is the first person of Indian origin to attend The Julliard School’s Drama Division. In the last 16 years, Mahira has acted on stage, television and films, with appearances in Orange is the New Black, New Amsterdam and Louie. She has appeared in numerous plays both in New York and around the world, and guest-starred on many television shows. In 2013 she starred in Hank and Asha, for which she won Best Actress at the Napa Valley Film Festival.
The hosts for the event are our stellar #boss ladies Mrinalini Ramakrishnan and Shruti Van Dyke Gandhi. This is an invitation only event with limited seats. If you would like to attend, please kindly RSVP. We will share the login details a day before the event. I am confident that conversations will traverse the reel and real worlds, packed with take-aways that will hold us in good stead.
See you at the event!
