Following the release of the series “Welcome to Chippendales,” many people are curious to learn more about the children of Steve Banerjee, Lindsay Banerjee And Christian Banerjee.
Somen “Steve” Banerjee, an Indian entrepreneur and the founder of Chippendales, was born on October 8, 1946, in Bombay (now Mumbai), India.
He lived until October 23, 1994. Before creating Chippendales, Banerjee had a varied career, including running a Mobil gas station and owning an unsuccessful backgammon club.
However, his purchase of the Destiny II nightclub in Los Angeles would lead to his most significant achievement.
He transformed the club into a venue for female mud wrestling and “Female Exotic Dancing Night,” which ultimately laid the foundation for creating Chippendales, the iconic male revue and entertainment brand.
Steve Banerjee Wife Irene Katherine Tychowskyj Banerjee
Steve Banerjee and Irene met while working in the business industry and quickly developed a strong bond.
Irene, an accountant, provided valuable financial support and guidance to Steve throughout his career.
They married in the 1980s, and Irene was Steve’s dedicated and supportive partner.
Together, they had two children, Lindsay Banerjee And Christian Banerjee, who were an important part of their lives.
After Steve’s passing in 1994, Irene inherited the entire Chippendales business, including all its properties and assets.
Irene took on the responsibility of running the business and ensuring it continued to be successful.
However, Irene’s tenure as owner was short-lived, as she passed away from breast Cancer on February 8, 2001.
Her death was a significant loss for her family and the Chippendales business, and she is remembered as a dedicated and supportive partner, mother, and businesswoman.
It appears that members of the Banerjee family still own the Chippendales Company.
