Founder, President, CEO, Raj Girn explains the theme of this year’s Awards Show as: “As Canada celebrates 150 years of independence this year, ANOKHI MEDIA is proud to announce that this same year, as we celebrate 10 years of hosting our annual awards show – which mandates honouring the ‘regional, national, and international success stories of some of today’s most prolific South Asians’ – our 3rd edition of the coffee table book, ‘Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017’, has, through a rigorous three-part nomination process, 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, AND without loosing its cultural identity.” 

She ended by stating that, “Along with my team, our sponsors, and 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, thus celebrating another year of tremendous South Asian success.” 


Nindy Kaur – International Bhangra Singer/Founder, Nindy Kaur Cosmetics 

Since Nindy first sang her first Bollywood song, people have always said her voice is ANOKHI. That’s what makes her stand out.” – Manj Musik, Singer and Songwriter

Nindy Kaur, the modern-day Wonder Woman, is a mother, a wife, a musician and an entrepreneur. She has performed at the International Indian Film Academy Awards in 2011 and at the 70th India Day celebrations and has released a multitude of hits on her equally successful solo endeavours including “Singh & Kaur” from Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Bliing (2015) which garnered almost 13 million views, “Go Pagal” from Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 (2017) which got over 15 million views. The most popular to date is “Whistle Baja” from Tiger Shroff’s film Heropanti (2014) which clocked over 31 million views to date. With over 80,000 Instagram followers and over one million likes on her Facebook page, it’s clear that she is an icon.

Kaur also launched her own beauty line, Nindy Kaur Cosmetics, after fans kept asking about her lip colours. Kaur’s line features velvety and hydrating lip products that pack a lasting and colourful punch. Sold out of pre-orders, Nindy Kaur Cosmetics has been a hit and Kaur may be opening a storefront in the future.

“Firstly I am so pleased to have been chosen for the Hotstar Presents The ANOKHI List 2017. It is a great feeling to be featured in a list with such amazing personalities and gives me such a good feeling of self accomplishment. I have always tried to break the barriers of being a typical wife and mother, being in the music industry and crossing over to fashion and now cosmetics has been a dream come true and I’m not about to stop anytime soon. I’d like to thank Anokhi for embracing my talent and featuring me on the Anokhi list along with others that I also look up to as high achievers and entrepreneur’s. Thank You againLove” – Nindy Kaur
