While the men in Bollywood are showing their mettle by trying their hand in entrepreneurship, the ladies are now proving that they too are not far behind. Names like Shilpa Shetty, Shreya Saran, Preity Zinta and likes are testimonials to the fact that the tinsel town ladies are indeed names to watch out for in the arena of business.

Adding to this list is none other than Tanya Kumar (better half of Kishan Kumar), who has now launched Teso, touted as the country’s ultimate party destination in Goa. It is tagged as the perfect way to unwind on the Waterfront at Siolim. Open from breakfast to midnight, Teso is fast becoming a hotspot for Bollywood celebrities and was in the spotlight during the Sunburn Festival and AfterBurn parties last year which boasted of guests like Vikram Chatwal & Jake Jagger (Mick Jagger’s daughter), Zayed and Malaika Khan, Aftab Shivdasani, Wardha and Sajid Nadiadwala, Anil & Sabina Chopra, Queenie Singh, Rocky S, Mugdha Godse and many more.

Talking about Teso, Tanya Kumar said, “When I was a little girl, I remember telling my mom that,’ one day I want to own a hotel of my own and luckily my passion for traveling and discovering new destinations kept my dream alive. I’ve always had a thing for Italy…Italian places, people, clothing, music, food and also the language itself. The cuisine decided was Mediterranean, primarily Italian …and since this is a treasure in the true sense of the word, I was sure about naming it Teso’, which is derived from an Italian word ‘Tesoro”, meaning Treasure.”

Meanwhile, her ever-supportive husband Kishan Kumar said, “The Indian customer is evolving fast. They are travelling a lot and are discovering new concepts, which they would like to see back home in India. This new concept that has been created for India will cater to Indian tastes on par with international standards so that there is something for everyone”.

The good news is that Teso will soon have its official launch this month!
