On bagging new business, Prathap Suthan, managing partner and chief creative officer, Bang in the Middle, says, "Diva'ni is a unique brand. With YRF at the forefront, Bollywood has time and again been inspiring fashion, and now it's time fashion reflected the essence of Bollywood. The romance of Bollywood and the brand's ability to make every woman bring out her inner Diva is an extraordinary experience. We are sure Diva'ni will be the next iconic brand and like Bollywood, will soon have a global footprint as well."
