Speaking on the occasion Tanya Chaitanya, Chief Community Officer and Editor, Femina said, “The bond that parents share with their child is so unique. Daughters, in particular, are delicate and feisty all at once. As a mom, I feel great pride to be a part of the Femina Super Daughter Awards 2017, which celebrates this beautiful bond, in a country, which has traditionally not exactly celebrated the girl child.”
An emotional Rajni Bhatia, mother of actor Tamannah Bhatia, said, “Tamannah was always a talented child, and at the age of 14, when an opportunity came by, she asked me if she could pursue acting. My first reaction was ‘No.’ Then I remembered, that it was always my dream to be news anchor, and my mom didn’t encourage me to pursue it. And so, it has always been a regret of mine. I couldn’t let my daughter live with such a regret, and so I told her to grab the opportunity.”

Well known VJ and RJ Bhavana Balakrishnan, who was the host for the evening, kept the audience thoroughly entertained with her banter. The energy intensified as the evening progressed, with a fashion show by designer Rehana Basheer, who walked the ramp with her mother at the end, in a touching finale. It was followed by a rib-tickling comic act by stand-up comic Alexander.

The awards were presented by Prince Jewellery and powered by Sathyabama University. Other partners for the awards were, Design partner- Rehana Basheer, Beauty Partner- Aloe Veda, Styling partner- Green Trends, VST Grandeur (Jaguar) and Hospitality Partner- Feathers-A Radha Hotel.
