Welcome to Chippendales- Plot & Synopsis
Somen “Steve” Banerjee, an Indian immigrant, arrives in the United States with big dreams and aspirations. Eventually, he ends up buying an unsuccessful nightclub in West Los Angeles. He then decides to tap into a new demographic by putting on a show featuring scantily clad male strippers.
A Closer Look at How Chippendales Rose to Fame
Established in the 1970s, the Chippendales are credited for transforming male strip shows into mainstream entertainment. The touring dance troupe gained prominence for its Broadway-style burlesque shows created particularly for women. The dancers were famous for wearing their distinctive uniform consisting of a collar, bow ties, and shirt cuffs.
Growing Competition and Criminal Activities
As the Chippendales began to gain notoriety worldwide, Banerjee bought nightclubs in big cities – including New York, Denver, and Dallas. However, as his business grew, so did his competition. When other similar nightclubs and stripping groups began to pop up, he got anxious and tried to burn down at least three establishments.
His criminal activities continued into the late 1980s when he paid one of his associates to kill Nick De Noia – the choreographer of Chippendales and a business partner. Banerjee also had two of his other associates murdered before being arrested for his crimes. In 1993, the strip club empire mogul was sentenced to 26 years for attempted arson, murder for hire, and racketeering.
Banerjee committed suicide in his cell at the age of 48.
