Far removed from the traditional confines of mere success, the evening defined ‘Pride’ as an inner sense of achievement, of uniqueness and of individuality, all the things that are, in fact, meaningful for this generation. The evening was a celebration of the authenticity and uniqueness of style delving into the idea of ‘Pride’ through one’s choices, style and legacy. It was all about rejoicing in individuals who have created their own distinct tales of style, and are instilled with a strong sense of positive pride, for their self-earned achievements.
Blenders Pride Magical Nights believes in celebrating ‘Pride’ which is a hallmark of today’s generation, as a meaningful expression of their accomplishments. While their distinct choices define their individuality, the taste of pride, which comes from this self-earned achievement, is one for these individuals.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Raja Banerji, Assistant Vice President, Pernod Ricard India, said, “For today’s consumer, having a unique style and expressing the same is non-negotiable.

Blenders Pride Magical Nights, brings this alive through an eclectic mix of the most stylish in fashion, music and Bollywood.
