The ITA Creators Walk
Anu Ranjan & Shashi Ranjan organised The ITA Creators Walk at JW Marriott, Juhu, Mumbai as a prelude to The 17th ITA Awards, which will be held on 5th November 2017.
A unique, one-of-its kind fashion walk saw close to 62 of the biggest Producers / Directors / Writers of the Television industry take to the ramp. They were cheered on by close to 300 people from the TV industry including actors / technicians & stars they helped create in their illustrious career.
Anu Ranjan, President The ITA said "Its been a long 17 years journey for us where we have seen the TV industry flourish from a toddler taking fledgling steps to being a gargantum industry, which is amongst the largest employer in the country. What better tribute to some of the people who helped shape this industry, than calling them on stage & making them feel like the stars they are"
Shashi Ranjan, Convenor of The ITA said, "I have been a Producer / Director myself & am aware of the trials & tribulations they go through to create a successful product. When we started this journey 17 years back people were skeptical if TV as a medium can compete with Bollywood. Today, when some of the top Bollywood actors are seen on TV, our faith in the medium has been justified."
