Prashant Singh, co-founder and partner, Cinema Waale Film and Television Productions LLP added "A month after the Pinkvilla Style Icons 2022, it won't really be an understatement to say that we are absolutely thrilled with the super success of the award function! When we had set out to put together the event, the idea was to make it a memorable one. And voila, that wish has come true as the inaugural edition of the award function continues to be the talk of the B-Town. As the curator of the show, we, at Cinema Waale, are proud of the fact that celebrities from different walks of life - led by Bollywood stars turned up in huge numbers, and congregated at one place after the painful days of COVID-19/lockdowns, etc. It was fantastic to see so many achievers under one roof. In hindsight though, the challenge will be to take things a notch above the next time around. But we are up for any challenge that comes our way,".
