We are hoping for a larger response in the years to come and for that we are reaching out to more and more people through different mediums.”
The vibrant Shruti Seth who has been a part of this event’s marketing since the past three years exclaims, “I was terribly excited about the event. Firstly, we were sold out, which is a great thing and it is like a sign that people are enjoying themselves rather than being offended. The guys as always put up a hilarious show on stage.
