It was an opportunity not many in the Indian Institute of Management (Lucknow) wanted to miss out on. A chance to meet actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and ace director Ketan Mehta, in town to promote their forthcoming film Manjhi, saw management students throng the auditoriumn much before the scheduled time. Organised by IIM-L's media and communication cell, the cast and crew of the film spoke on the theme, Do It Yourself.
Stand-up comedian Daniel Fernandes had the audience in splits with his spot-on humour. The trailer of the movie received a huge round of applause from the audience as the film salutes the spirit of every man who has a dream and works relentlessly to fulfill it.
To honour the same spirit, four budding entrepreneurial ventures from IIM-Lucknow (Meri Awaaz, Chivera Sunglasses, Craveat and Click n Pick) were felicitated by Siddiqui and Mehta.
Each team was presented with a souvenir in the shape of a hammer, symbolising the weapon to overcome all obstacles and 'Do It Yourself'.
Ketan Mehta was his usual charming self, answering all questions coming his way with a wide smile. Nawazuddin stole the show with his extremely popular dialogue from his movie 'Gangs of Wasseypur'.
