You remember Margaret Alva? Till recently she was a powerful lady in the Congress - high command and the AICC general secretary, in charge of party affairs in many states including Maharashtra. Of late, she is not seen in meda. She has been sidelined in the party following her remarks on issuing tickets in the previous assembly elections in Karnataka.
On Wednesday evening (Jan 21) she was sharing dais with her sons Nikhil Alva in a programme is one of the posh hotels in the capital - New Delhi. Margaret Brothers, owned by her family, announced launch of an entertainment channel - REAL - in association with Time Warner, one of the leading company in the entertainment world.
Margaret family people have been running Meditech, a production house in Mumbai for the last 18 years. The channel is expected to be launched by March this year. For sometime the channel would be available free and then it would be turned into a pay-channel.
Can we say Margaret Alva is the second Kannadati to be involved in launching an entertainment channel after newly-elected MLA Anita Kumaraswamy, who is MD of Kasturi?
