Renowned Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn and Bollywood's latest heartthrob Sonakshi Sinha were today felicitated with the 'UTV STARS Walk of the Stars' on the eve of Diwali festival.
Both Devgn and Sinha unveiled their respective tiles at the J W Marriott hotel here, which 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, Devgn said "The fact that I'm being honoured 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 that is 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, Sonakshi said "I am extremely humbled to be honoured at the UTV STARS Walk of the Stars this early in my career. The fact that my tile will be placed alongside legends of the Indian Cinema is indeed very heart warming." UTV STARS Walk of the Stars is a way of honouring the invaluable contribution of the biggest superstars of Indian Cinema. It is a premium property that will encompass renowned celebrities' handprints on a customised slab and specially designed brass statues of iconic legendary actors.
While customised slabs bearing the handprints will be dedicated to the living legends of Indian Cinema, customised 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.
And, as a special honour, brass statues on a bench of Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor were also installed.
