Mumbai: In an interview featured in the October 2011 issue of Take on Art magazine, Girish Shahane spoke with Minal and Dinesh Vazirani about their online auction house, Saffronart. It is an insightful conversation about the various phases the company has gone through in the span of a decade and some years since its inception. From starting out as a web-based vendor to having physical exhibition spaces, and from focusing on art, to diversifying into jewelry, watches, antiquities, Prime Properties and most recently carpets and collectibles like classic cars, Saffronart has quite literally become the go-to place for the luxe aficionado.

Minal and Dinesh Vazirani also discuss issues regarding government regulations regarding art within India, the rise and fall of contemporary Indian art, establishing relations with galleries and clients, art funds, and the importance of private museums.
