Viewers being the real judges of the popularity of a star or the success of a film, it is their votes that will decide on the deserving winners. Though in its first year, we are sure of receiving a good response from ardent fans who would not want to miss out on a dream opportunity of personally honoring their favorite stars.”

We are making the process of voting really easy and simple for anyone who wants to vote and gain a chance to handover the award to his or her favorite star. I am positive of a great response from our target audience once the voting lines open. "
