- One of the most anticipated Middle East awards show, the GR8! Women Awards is back this season!
Lindsay Lohan, Alia Bhatt, Vaani Kapoor, Farah Khan, Iulia Vantur made a star studded entry at one of the most anticipated Middle East awards show, The 7th GR8! Women Awards. The event was held at the Roda Al Bustan. The ceremony which was conceptualised by prominent Indian TV personalities Abu and Shashi Ranjan, honoured 17 women achievers from the Middle East right from Kuwait, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Qatar as well as India.
Being a part of the GR8 Women’s Awards in 2016 was a great honour and privilege. So you can only imagine how overcome with joy I was to learn I had been selected once again to participate in this prestigious award ceremony for 2017 as well! I was selected to be one of the amazing group of models to appear on the runway in a dazzling collection of clothing from renowned Indian and International Designers.
“People say that behind every successful man there is a woman, but I believe that behind every successful woman there is also a woman,”
The show began with a fashion show, displaying the work of Sunaina Jain, and actress Anushka Ranjan was the showstopper.
The list of awardees also included many A-listers who hoped to inspire women to follow their dreams.
“We always say [that] I’m a woman in a man’s world but I think it’s the other way around. You are all men in a woman’s world,” said Farah Khan while accepting her award for choreography and directing. Her message to women was simple, yet important.
“Don’t let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do. You can do everything and be everything you want to be.”
