MUMBAI: The awards night of the annual and flagship initiative of CNN-News18, ?Indian of the Year ? 2017? will be telecasted on the 9 and 10 of December at 9:30 PM on the channel. The initiative, whichrecognizes and awards the exceptional contribution and achievements of the iconic Indian citizens and organizations, has already received exceptional interest from all over India.

The event, in its eleventh year, witnessed participation from several industry stalwarts, ministers, and renowned personalities from the sports and film fraternity - Minister of Finance, Arun Jaitley, Minister of Commerce, Suresh Prabhu, Stalwarts of the Indian Cricket Fraternity, Virat Kohli, Ravi Shastri, Mithali Raj and Kapil Dev, the newly crowned Miss World Manushi Chhillar, Actors Rajkkumar Rao & Ramya Krishnan, Business Honchos Adar Poonawala & Acharya Balkrishna to name a few.

Sharing his thoughts on the Awards, TV18 president- revenue and Forbes India CEO Joy Chakraborthy said,?Over the past ten years, CNN-News18 Indian of the Year awards have evolved to a significant stature, recognizing the outstanding contributions of the Indians in various categories. The colossal success of this initiative in the past decade, including participation by some of the country?s most distinguished citizens, has raised the bar for this platform making it one of the most accredited awards in the industry. I am of the firm belief that a marquee event like this not only builds equity for the channel but also creates tremendous value for the brands associating with it and my belief was validated when over 10 sponsors partnered with us this year.?

The audience included not just the ones seated at the venue but also across the nation with the event being digitally streamed live on the JioTV app & news18.com and through live television dip-ins on CNN-News18, engaging audiences across the country.
