HSBC & Makemytrip.com’s Travel Credit Card Launch by Farhan Akhtar
“Farhan.. FARHAN…Farhan…”Everytime Purab Kohli said that name the audience went crazy!
Even the top executives from both HSBC bank and MakeMytrip.com couldn’t control their excitement! 😛 (Waise to be honest it was pretty hard to identify Farhan Akhtar in his beard and his coat :P) and Purab Kohli on the other hand was too good a host, trying his best to get his HSBC – MAKE MY TRIP Credit for free!! 😛 😛 (Kay re Purab!)
Farhan being an avid traveller was the perfect guest for the evening. He shared with us some of his travel stories all the around the world.
Starting from the beaches of Goa in Dil Chahta Hai to the scenic valleys in Ladakh for Lakshya. From the ‘Tomatina’ Festival in Spain to Malayasia for the shooting of Don 2.Farhan has done it all!
He is also very passionate about sky diving as we’ve seen in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (he has already made around 100 jumps so far. Whoa!)
Finally when asked about rumours of Don 3 being filmed in New York ,Farhan said, “ really? . New York? Take me also na! “ (:P..LOL..really funny Farhan) After all the jokes Purab and Farhan had practiced were over,it was time for the launch of HSBC TRAVEL CREDIT CARD in partnership with Make My Trip.com. The card looked sleek with Farhan’s name on it. Bechara Purab! 😛 :P..You should’ve seen his face. 😛 lol..haha!
The event ended with boring speeches from the Managers and the Executives of both HSBC and MMT! :P..telling us how to spend more on our credit card to earn reward points and with those reward points book flight tickets, hotel reservations etc..etc.. with MMT and go travelling! 😛 (:D Nice idea..you CEO’s) But at the end of the day……*Shop your way to a holiday!* ..seemed to be the punch line they all missed! 😉
Copyrights are with us. Haha! 😛
