15 Minutes with Lavanya Mathur

We get chatting to the Director of CRE8 Events Management

Lavanya Mathur, Director of CRE8 Events Management is known for bringing the hottest B’wood rockstars to town. It’s no wonder his events are so popular in the UAE and beyond.

A day in my life…
The truth is that despite the routine, every day comes with its unique experiences. So for me every day is a new day.

A memorable event I organised…
My company CRE8 Event’s first event 9/12 Hungama was memorable from the struggle of arranging every bit of the big day to achieving the Best Asian Concert Award at the Masala! Awards 2013.

A quote that inspires me…
“The question is not that who will let me, it is who is going to stop me.”

My favourite holiday destination is…
My hometown, Jaipur. A perfect holiday is at home with my parents, brother and the family.

The biggest challenge of event planning is…
The unexpected issues which tend to pop up when you don’t want them at all. But these challenges always teach us the best lessons and enable us to improve.

I love to eat…
Irrespective of the variety of restaurants in Dubai, no chef cooks like my wife, so food cooked by her is my all-time favourite.

My inspiration is…
Every team member of CRE8 inspires me with their individual qualities. Gaurav Bhatia, my mentor and business partner inspires me with his great vision, Bala with his sharp business understanding, my subordinate Ritu for her strong perseverance and Naushad for his hard work and technical knowledge. They all inspire me to work to my fullest potential.

The track I am currently humming is…
Mann Kunto Maula from Gunday and the latest Oh Lal Meri by Yo Yo Honey Singh and Mika Singh.

An event I would like to bring to Dubai…
A fusion of Bollywood and Hollywood artists.

In my free time…
Every single minute after my work belongs to my little angel, my daughter Dianaa Mathur.

My favourite sport is…
Badminton and swimming.

A Bollywood celeb I admire…
King Khan is surely a king by heart. Shah Rukh Khan is a very down to earth person who inspired me with his simplicity when I met him.

My definition of happiness is…
Happiness is infectious, the more you spread, the more you get it around you.

An alternate career for me would have been…
I love playing with numbers, increasing them, multiplying them so probably Investment Portfolio Management.
