Su­per­star Mo­han­lal opens Mu­sic Lounge in Doha

Gulf Times - - QATAR/REGION/ARAB WORLD -

In­dian film su­per­star Mo­han­lal at­tended the inau­gu­ra­tion of the new lo­ca­tion of the Mu­sic Lounge cen­tre for train­ing in Doha on Fri­day, much to the de­light and ex­cite­ment of fans and fam­i­lies.

The su­per­star made a Doha stop on his way back from a fam­ily va­ca­tion in Europe to meet with some friends and to of­fi­cially in­au­gu­rate the new branch of Mu­sic Lounge in Abu Hamour, Doha, a press state­ment noted. The inau­gu­ra­tion was a pri­vate cer­e­mony, fea­tur­ing only the found­ing di­rec­tors and par­ents of stu­dents at Mu­sic Lounge in Wakrah.

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony, Mo­han­lal cut the rib­bon and then pro­ceeded to meet the stu­dents and fac­ulty in var­i­ous class­rooms, giv­ing him an op­por­tu­nity to see how the teach­ers con­duct classes in real time at Mu­sic Lounge.

“I am very de­lighted to be at this inau­gu­ra­tion. It was in 2013 that I in­au­gu­rated Mu­sic Lounge in Qatar for the first time in Wakrah. Tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the dis­tance that the stu­dents need to travel, Mu­sic Lounge has opened a new chap­ter here in Doha. I wish ev­ery­one very good luck, let this be a won­der­ful in­sti­tu­tion. Thank you very much,” he said.

The inau­gu­ra­tion was held in the pres­ence of Mu­sic Lounge chair­man John Thomas, who was joined on stage by man­ag­ing di­rec­tor San­thosh T Ku­ruvilla, di­rec­tor Jaisen Ge­orge and spon­sor Ma­jor Naser Dar­wish al-Me­shadi. Co-founder and brand am­bas­sador Stephen Devassy con­veyed his greet­ings and love to the au­di­ence and Mo­han­lal via a phone call made on stage.

Af­ter the in­au­gu­ral speech, Thomas handed over a spe­cial me­mento to Mo­han­lal, who is also a Padma Shri awardee.

The cel­e­bra­tion in­cluded cut­ting of the cake on stage.
