With the most awaited festival Diwali coming up soon, we at Zolo decided to have a get-together of all employees for an evening of fun. What started as a simple plan to just get together over some drinks and food turned out to be a full-fledged theme based party! Well, who doesn’t like to dress up for occasions, and especially when it’s with your Zolo family. The theme was decided to be Bollywood, to bring back the charm and enigma of the yesteryear’s. Hammered in HSR layout was the venue and 19th October was the chosen date for the Bollywood party.
By 7 PM, most of the Zoloites started reaching the venue Hammered in HSR Layout. It was great to see people bringing in the Bollywood theme to perfection. The Zoloites gave this party an oomph factor by dressing in swanky Bollywood attire. There were many fun events planned for the evening like GroupFie Competition, Bollywood Quiz, Ramp Walk, and Zolo Patakhaa Awards.
The GroupFie Competition saw a lot of teams participating and clicking GroupFie’s in the most innovative and funny ways. Selfies are fun but when it’s a GroupFie with your team then the fun doubles. The winners of GroupFie got a gift hamper from Zolo.
Next up was the Bollywood Quiz which saw all kinds of funny and interesting trivia questions about Bollywood. The enthusiasm of the crowd for answering the questions was worth looking at. The audiovisual questions got multiple answers from the crowd and it was an absolute riot of laughter.
Now it was time to decide on Mr. & Miss Zolo 2019. The participants were asked to walk the ramp and showcase their fashion skills. The winners were decided based on the Ramp Walk and also the attire. Miss & Mr. Zolo 2019 were Kumari Nidhi and Lav Harjani respectively.
Now it was time for the Zolo Patakhaa Awards to celebrate the celebrities we have at Zolo.
