He continues, “I have already seen around 300 ad films from across the world. All the entries are given scores and they are then shortlisted.”

Summing up his experience on judging the awards, Kakar says, “This opportunity gave me a chance to witness diverse works and exposed me to various styles, which was an enriching experience.”
