MUMBAI: They said it wouldn't work. But we said we wouldn't say so until we'd tried. The response to the Indian Telly Awards Nominee's Nite held last night at the ITC Grand Maratha however outshot our wildest expectations by several miles.

A novel initiative, the Nominees' Nite was intended to converge and felicitate all those who are deserving of the prestigious Telly (to be given away on 19 and 21 November).



Now in its third year, the Indian Telly Awards, instituted by Indiantelevision.com, celebrate excellence in the television industry, both on screen and off screen, and are the most credible and sought after honours in their arena.
