The Head of Yash Raj Films’ youth wing Y-Films, Ashish Patil is part of Ad Age (one of the most respected Global Advertising & Marketing publications in the world published from the US) in its Creativity 50 list that celebrates the top 50 creative minds of the world. He’s also the only Indian on the list. The list covers musicians, filmmakers, designers, tech people, artistes, CSR guys, writers – people who’ve contributed significantly to big ideas in that year.
Adds Ashish, the brainchild behind India’s first transgender band, the 6-Pack Band, “I’m personally quite overwhelmed by this recognition and it goes to just demonstrate what happens when the positive energies of an incredible bunch of people comes together to nurture, build, collaborate execute and promote an idea – there’s nothing in the world that can stop it from exploding. And I’m thankful to each one of them, especially my team and brother Shamir Tandon who helped curate the band. I really hope this helps our little 6-Pack Band and the theme of getting the LGBTQ community into the mainstream heard louder. More power to Y-Films!”
The 6-Pack Band is India’s, most unique musical collective. A band composed of 6 transgender singers, it’s an initiative created and driven by Y-Films. Ashish with his innovative idea of creating such a musical band, has hit the right notes and got recognition for it too.
