Dome Entertainment and Cineyug Bring to Life Mumbai Police’s Umang 2019
Mumbai Police’s annual cultural celebration – Umang 2019, was conceptualised and executed by Dome Entertainment. The event was executed in collaboration with Cineyug Group. Bringing together glamour and sophistication, the event celebrated the Mumbai Police while recognising their heroic achievements, dedication, and hard work. Organised at the expansive MMRDA Grounds in Bandra Kurla Complex, the event consisted of several stellar performances by leading film stars and other renowned artistes.
The event was conceptualised to thank the Mumbai Police for their utmost support and downright bravery in protecting the city, with an aim to deliver an experience that the attendees could take home with them. Hosted by Mini Mathur, Malishka Mendonsa and Manish Paul, the evening saw electrifying performances by the biggest names from the industry like Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Vicky Kaushal, Rajkumar Rao, Taapsee Pannu, and Kartik Aryan among others. While Aamir Khan spoke to Jitendra Joshi about the Paani Foundation, Ayushmann Khurrana and Aditya Roy Kapur highlighted how the hard work of the Mumbai Police has made Mumbai one of the safest cities in the country. Raveena Tandon also spoke of the brave women officers of the IPS.
The main highlight of the evening was the daredevil performance of Akshay Kumar, who started his act by hoisting the Indian flag in his trademark ‘Khiladi’ style by leaping off a near-by building. An act specially curated for Umang, it saw him being introduced by Rohit Shetty and joined on stage by Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh. Together, they contributed INR 51 Lakh to the Mumbai Police Foundation.
Another highlight of the event was the launch of the Mumbai Police Calendar for 2019 by Amitabh Bachchan along with Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Also present for the unveiling were Amruta Fadnavis and other dignitaries. Big B also announced his contribution to the Mumbai Police Foundation, which was INR 51 Lakhs.
