ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsKeshav Suri inherited a well established empire from his late father and Indian F&B stalwart Lalit Suri, but Kitty Su was not a part of it. The youngest executive director of Lalit Group of Hotels has carved a niche for himself and his creative, futuristic style has earned him great rewards and yet, Suri is not content with what he has achieved. © Twitter But this wasn't the case when his father passed away. “It was difficult to come to terms with reality. The best way was to immerse myself in my studies and learn the ropes of the trade, so I could help mom. My parents made sure that my siblings and I had a great education and were exposed to different cultures. So when the need came, after my father's demise, we were able to take charge as a family. It was daunting to step into my father's shoes. My mother is my pillar of support. I hope I am the one to realise my father's dreams,” said Keshav in a recent interview. The young Suri has been instrumental in driving a lot of unique initiatives at the Lalit group. He started Kitty Su in 2011 with the intent of delivering a unique experience to the millennials and it worked. Kitty Su has made big strides in the F&B business and it is the only nightclub from India to be featured in DJ Mag for three years consecutively. It has also been awarded as Best Night Club in Delhi by Times Food and Nightlife Awards. © sloshout It didn't stop with Kittu Su though. Keshav Suri's dynamic and creative approach helped in conceptualising 'The Lalit Food Truck Company', a one of a kind outdoor catering business. With Mexican food and pizza trucks the luxury chain forayed into an unknown territory, something that Lalit Suri was famous for in the era bygone. Similarly, the Lalit property in London is quietly establishing itself as a luxury boutique hotel with a unique touch and good food. Apart from being a new-age businessman, Kesav Suri is a cultural icon for the LGBTQ community in India. Recently, he filed a petition with the Supreme Court on challenging Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) that criminalises a consensual relationship between consenting adults of the same ***. Since he took over the hotel business, he has made the properties more inclusive and hopes that in time he will be able to help the community that he's a part of, the much needed basic human rights that they deserve. © TOI At heart, though, Keshav remains that inventive kid his father was proud of. “I do have his genes as far as living the high life is concerned. That's why I started the pop up party. I created the brand out of my own selfish interests. It is the kind of place I would like to party at. As a city, Paris continues to remain my favourite destination. We successfully launched the concept in Mumbai and Chandigarh. Soon after that we started monthly pop ups in Bengaluru, Kolkata and Jaipur that have been immensely popular,” said Keshav recently. And even though Suri might have just started in his quest of making Lalit a global brand, the kind of work that he's doing surely paves a way for young Indian entrepreneurs to follow in years to come.
