MUMBAI: 10 years old and it was a time to celebrate. BAG Films' 10th anniversary party held in Mumbai's Taj Land's End clearly showed the kind of goodwill the husband wife promoter duo Anuradha Prasad and Rajiv Shukla have in the television, film and political fraternities.

The party was attended by some political heavyweights including Sharad Yadav (who had flown in specially from Delhi), Maharashtra chief minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, Shatrughan Sinha, Raj Babbar, among others. The film fraternity had representation from film stars Jackie Shroff, Shah Rukh Khan, and directors Madhur Bhandarkar, Subhash Ghai and Fahad Samar. The business community saw the presence of Neeta Ambani, among several others.

It was the television industry which came out in full force: Zee TV chairman Subhash Chandra, Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea, Star India COO Sameer Nair, programming head Tarun Katial, Star News chief Ravina Raj Kohli, Sony Entertainment head Sunil Lulla, creative director Saurabh Vanzara, director Sanjay Upadhyay, producers Manish Goswami, Ronnie Screwvala, Vipul D Shah and Sanjeev Sharma, Dheeraj Kumar, Vinta Nanda, Rekha Nigam, Gajra Kottary, among others.

The TV acting community which turned up in numbers included Yash Tonk, Ali Asgar, Saakshi Tanwar, Rupali Ganguli, Gurpreet Kohli, Reeta Bhaduri, Juhi Parmar, Amit Behl, Simone Singh, Urvashi Dholakia, Aseem Sharma, Shweta Keswani, Kiran Karmakar.

Anuradha, in her remarks, thanked several individuals who have more than believed in the BAG Films vision and have lent a hand in its success climb. Among these figured Subhash Chandra, Peter Mukerjea, Shatrughan Sinha and Kunal Dasgupta.

The celebrations began with a show-reel of BAG Films' achievements, and was followed by Anuradha and her well-wishers cutting a cake, shaped like a Number 10, to loud cheers from friends.

The production house is raising funds through an IPO for setting up captive production and post production facilities and for a media school on the outskirts of Delhi.

That is for the future. For the nonce even as this piece was being written, the party was rocking at Land's End. And it looked like the celebration would not end soon.
