Loyal viewers of the COLORS show, Laagi Tujhse Lagan
love their Dutta Bhau, i.e. Mishal Raheja
like crazy!! But do we know that the actor is a complete entrepreneur
and is in fact the proud owner of a company that serves a unique
Well, for the uninitiated, Mishal Raheja
owns a company called 'Party Hard Driver', which actually provides the
aristocrats with drivers especially when they are partying hard..
Friends Saurabh Shah and Ankur Vaid happen to be equal partners of
Mishal in this business.
We hear that the idea of opening such a
company came about to avoid the accidents that happen now and again in
the city due to drunken driving.
Says Mishal, "I was basically
shocked to see the number of people in our city losing their lives in
way of accidents after partying hard. This is when this thought of
starting a service came to my mind, and my friends loved the concept
when I described it to them".
'Party Hard Driver' has today
completed three long years, and the gratification according to Mishal is
three fold today.. "Firstly, we are ensuring safety to people who are
drunk. Secondly, we have managed to give employment to many people, and
lastly, we have that feel good factor that we are indeed doing something
to serve the people of Mumbai", explains Mishal.
Ask him how he
manages his company as well as his rigorous shooting schedule and he
says, "It is all about managing time. When I am on the sets of my serial
I have nothing else in mind. But the minute I leave the sets, I go into
a switch-off mode and connect with my partners".
And to the big question of opting to leave Laagi Tujhse Lagan
the actor tells us, "Talks are still on with the production house, and I don't want to comment on anything right now".
to tell you more, Mishal in addition to being an actor and an
entrepreneur, is an ace photographer and a good musician too..
Guess Mishal can be called the 'Master of All Trades'… Reporter and Author: Ranjini Nair
