Anokhi Today Nov 14, 2017
It’s getting closer! We have less than 2 weeks until Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI Awards 2017. Our VVIP & VIP Tickets are all sold out, so grab your general tickets (click here!), which are available now, before they sell out as well!
Join us for a glamorous evening celebrating Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI Awards 2017 on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017, at the historic Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex in Toronto.
Witness the regional, national and international success stories of some of today’s most prolific South Asians — live!
Raj Girn, Founder, President and CEO of ANOKHI MEDIA, explains the theme of this year’s award show:
“Canada celebrates 150 years of independence this year, and ANOKHI MEDIA is proud to announce that this same year, we celebrate ten years of hosting our annual awards show honouring the ‘regional, national, and international success stories of some of today’s most prolific South Asians.’ We are also celebrating the third edition of our coffee table book, Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017, which, through a rigorous three-part nomination process, has identified a record year for Canadian honourees.
“This is a true testament to the fact that Canada’s fastest-growing cultural group has finally come of age, dominating across all industries and all trajectories as an integral component of the Canadian and global landscape — all without losing its cultural identity. Along with my team, our sponsors and our partners, I look forward to launching the coffee table book at Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI Awards 2017, on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017, at the Historic Liberty Grand in Toronto, celebrating another year of tremendous South Asian success.”

Senior Manager at Omni TV
“I am humbled and honoured to make Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017 and to be included in this year’s one-of-a-kind, collector’s edition coffee table book. The ANOKHI brand, as the name suggests, is truly unique, and I commend Founder and CEO Raj Girn for being the visionary to launch this initiative and bringing it to the level where it is respected and highly regarded internationally.”
News Anchor, Global TV
“ANOKHI truly represents the spirit of South Asian style, culture, and tradition of today’s generation … sophisticated, stylish, professional, and fierce. I have witnessed first-hand ANOKHI’s growth from a twinkle in Raj’s eye to the incredible company it is today. It is truly an honour to be part of Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI Awards 2017. Congratulations to Raj and her incredible team!!”
Host/Media Personality, City TV
“After being recognized with an award a decade ago at ANOKHI’s first awards show, it’s an honour to return to their stage for the fifth time to present the music awards for Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI Awards 2017. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and honouring some fresh ones.”
Executive Vice President, Elevation Pictures Corp.
“I’m very honoured to be included in the third edition of the coffee table book, Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017, and I look forward to meeting and celebrating the many accomplished attendees at this year’s celebration.”
“I’m honoured to be a part of Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017. ANOKHI MEDIA has supported me throughout my career, and it is amazing to watch their incredible growth. I’m thrilled to attend this year’s awards show event and look forward to meeting my fellow honorees.”
“Awards and acknowledgements are the food for the soul of an artist. They offer the appreciation that is often lacking in our culture — a culture that discourages young people from pursuing the arts, where the arts are seen as hobbies or unrealistic pursuits for those seeking professional recognition and respect within the community. I was there since the inception of ANOKHI and I witnessed its steady and determined rise under the stewardship of Raj Girn. I am incredibly moved and honoured to have my work appreciated in Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017 and my toil recognized by this incredible organization. I hope to continue making it proud with my future works as well. Thank you. Shukriya. Dhanevaad.”
COO, Gupta Group & Real Estate Developer
“Thank you and blessings to Ms. Raj Girn, a true Canadian legend, as well as the ANOKHI team for bestowing upon me this honour of inclusion in Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017. To be included in this group of honorees on the 150th anniversary of Canada is no less than a blessing from above. I am a proud Indian and a patriotic Canadian, so to be honoured by this Canadian organization that has truly taken the world by storm and not only encouraged South Asians globally but also elevated them, I feel empowered and inspired. I am so excited for the upcoming festivities!”
Principle & Creative Director, Think Start Inc.
“The persistence and passion of ANOKHI are what we need more of as a culture. It’s once again an honour to serve as a guest host for this landmark event, featuring the next generation of stars from this talented community.”
Host #NoFilter, Rogers TV
“I am honoured to be asked to be a part of the 2017 ANOKHI Awards, the most glamorous South Asian event in North America. Coming on board as a special guest host for ANOKHI PULSE TV is very special and I look forward to seeing you all for a memorable evening at the awards gala.”
Niam Kumar Jain
“I’m so proud to hear that Niam has been named to the ANOKHI List. I had the pleasure of getting to know him well through our Samsung Look at Me Project, where we work to connect and support families living with autism through the power of technology. Niam’s positive attitude, love for his family and passion for his artwork make him an exceptionally inspiring young man. He is a role model and a reminder to each of us to always strive to reach our full potential.”
