Star-studded Reliance Mobile Vijay Awards
December 24, 2006
The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai saw some glittering stars and a fun-filled few hours earlier tonight as the Reliance Mobile Vijay Awards took to the stage in the presence of thousands of stars, film celebrities and an excited audience.
Film-related award functions these days seem a dime a dozen, but some stand out nevertheless, thanks to their pioneering efforts, the quality of presentation and packaging and their global reach on television and other media. Star Vijay’s Vijay Awards 2006 by the title sponsor Reliance Mobile was one such award function that excelled tonight.
The evening saw a host of stars, top-notch film technicians and many ardent movie-buffs and fans thronging to the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to see who wins which award.
