A host of special features made the ceremony significant this year. For starters, Videocon came up with a concept called ‘Stars that make the stars’ wherein Bollywood stars were asked at the Green Carpet Rendezvous who their inspiration was and the person they owed their success to. The concept was in synergy with Videocon’s commitment in bringing inspiring and innovative product range.
