Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha get felicitated at the UTV STARS Walk of the Stars; unveil the tiles bearing their respective handprints!
Mumbai, 12th November 2012: Festivities are rife with Diwali just around the corner and what better way to bring it in than by felicitating renowned Bollywood actor, Ajay Devgn, and Bollywood’s latest heartthrob, Sonakshi Sinha, on the UTV STARS Walk of the Stars. Both Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha unveiled their respective tiles at the JW Marriott hotel in Mumbai 12th November 2012 post which the tiles will be placed at the UTV STARS Walk of the Stars at Bandra Bandstand Promenade, the location of the Walk of the Stars.
Commenting on the installation of his tile at the Walk of the Stars, Ajay Devgn said: “The fact that I’m being honored is very heart warming. However, what’s even more heart warming is the fact that UTV STARS has taken the initiative to create a property such as this. Because, 30-40 years down the line, audiences will probably not even remember who we are i.e. the present generation of actors. This property will not only remind audiences of our invaluable contributions to Indian Cinema, but will also make us eternal in the eyes of many!”
Commenting on the installation of her tile at the Walk of the Stars, Sonakshi Sinha said: “I am extremely honored and humbled to be honored at the UTV STARS Walk of the Stars this early in my career. The fact that my tile will be placed alongside the legends of Indian Cinema is indeed very heart warming.”
UTV STARS Walk of the Stars is a way of honoring the invaluable contribution of the biggest superstars of Indian Cinema. It is a premium property that will encompass renowned celebrities’ handprints on a customized slab and specially designed brass statues of iconic legendary actors. While customized slabs bearing the handprints will be dedicated to the living legends of Indian Cinema, customized slabs with signatures will be dedicated to the legends that have passed away.
The UTV STARS Walk of the Stars was launched early this year with the felicitation of the legendary ‘Kapoor Khandaan’. Prithivirak Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Karishma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor’s tiles bearing their respective hand prints, were installed at the Bandra Bandstand Promenade, Mumbai. And as a special honor, brass statues on a bench of the great Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor were also installed!
