Hosting comes to me naturally: Vahbiz Dorabjee on starting her event management firm
Actor Vahbiz Dorabjee, who was seen in Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant last year, has been keeping herself busy. The actor has started an event management company with actor Pankit Thakker. Talking about her love for event management, she says, “I have always been told and have also realized it over the years that I have a flair for arranging events. I am a people’s person and being a host comes to me naturally. In fact, my parents have been after me to start event management on the side, since some time now. After being an actor since the last five years, I thought it’s time to venture into something else too. My show finished in February and I decided that this was the right time to start this,” she says.
Vahbiz and Pankit worked together in her last show and share a good rapport. “Pankit and I have chosen to work together because of the great equation we shared on the show. I have also known him from another show called Gabbar. We share a very good working relationship and, of course, a great friendship. We also organized an event earlier. We felt that we are great at working together and decided to collaborate,” she says.
Vahbiz, who is often told that she is great at networking, says she has never tried to do this deliberately. “A lot of people have told me this, but the truth is that I have been social intentionally. My childhood friends are still close to me. It is my personality to interact with people and keep in touch. I try to focus my energy on maintaining relationships rather than letting them break,” she says.
In terms of her work as an actor, Vahbiz says she wants to play a dark character. “My last show was great and I am so grateful to be a part of it. It is like a feather in my cap. I will be a bit more choosy now than I was before. My character was cute and bubbly in my last show and now I am looking for something strong or maybe even a negative character,” she says.
