Star Screen Awards 2017 Co-powered by Vivo – My First Bollywood Red Carpet Moment

I was invited to an all-expense paid trip to Mumbai, by Vivo India to attend the Star Screen Award 2017 in exchange for my coverage on blog and social media platforms. The Awards ceremony was Co-powered by Vivo in association with Star Plus. A month down and I am still at awe having walked the Red Carpet event with tons of Bollywood Celebrities. It was and still is a privilege, which I am ever so grateful to the universe. After watching tons of shows and red carpet moments, memories of childhood flashed my mind. I had picked up this Emilio Pucci gown about 3 years ago, to one day wear on the red carpet and low and behold 3 years later I wore it! I felt like a celebrity myself 🙂


The celebrities strolled down the carpet, smiled and posed before they entered the area where the ceremony took place. In the few seconds of window open, each of us there had our chance to invite rather, call out the stars to come over to the Vivo booth we were in. Not so easy as it sounds. As the stars , surrounded by security and fans that push you when you try to approach.

But for a newbie and first timer I wasn’t taking ‘No’ for an answer. I got a good couple of stars to line up and take some candid shots and video soundbites with. (Again it is not so easy, we had to call the stars out to our booth, and there were so many similar brands next to each other). I had other three bloggers who had attended such an event before and we laughed our way as we roped in the stars. We had a gala time.

I am left with few words to describe the feeling for having the opportunity. Being in the midst of some top Bollywood celebrities . This was my moment to shine, being a new blogger to standing alongside Salman Khan, one of the biggest superstars was a surreal moment. A highlight to my lifestyle blog career.

I spotted Rekha, Manisha Koirala, Madhuri Dixit, Tiger Shroff, Irfan Khan to name a few …but was not able to get a selfie with them. Perhaps another time.

Star Screen Awards, honour the work and excellence of the Celebrities for their contribution to cinema. Each one was in impeccable style, as they walked past and dazzled through the night. I also had the opportunity to watch the show as it was performed live.

I would describe myself as someone who loves to eat good food and travel, am polished and classy, yet have that little girl spirit in me and my fashion sense is chic which has to be accompanied with bold statement pieces and fresh accessories. I love to get pampered, totally spoil myself, and why not? xoxo Deena Pinto #skinnygirldiairez
