Radhika Apte dazzles the city at her stylish best
Blenders Pride Magical Nights arrived in the winter capital of Maharashtra, showcasing style like never before, as renowned designers Nainika from Gauri Nainika and Vidhi Wadhwani presented an eclectic mélange of stylish designs, with eccentric beats by Arunaja in Nagpur. The evening was a celebration of the self and the individual through the extraordinary new concept-‘Pride’, where showstopper Radhika Apte charmed everyone in a Gauri Nainika ensemble.
Far removed from the traditional confines of mere success, the evening defined ‘Pride’ as an inner sense of achievement, of uniqueness and of individuality, all the things that are, in fact, meaningful for this generation. The evening was a celebration of the authenticity and uniqueness of style delving into the idea of ‘Pride’ through one’s choices, style and legacy. It was all about rejoicing in individuals who have created their own distinct tales of style, and are instilled with a strong sense of positive pride, for their self-earned achievements.
Weaving a seamless story around ‘My Style, My Pride’, Blenders Pride Magical Nights believes in celebrating ‘Pride’ which is a hallmark of today’s generation, as a meaningful expression of their accomplishments. While their distinct choices define their individuality, the taste of pride that comes from this self-earned achievement is one for these individuals.
Commenting on the occasion, Raja Banerji, Assistant Vice President, Pernod Ricard India, said, “For today’s consumer, having a unique style and expressing the same is non-negotiable. Instilled with a strong sense of positive pride, individuals today are driven by confidence and belief for attaining success. Pride therefore takes a center stage in defining their individuality, creating their own choices, and self-earned achievement. Blenders Pride Magical Nights brings alive this exclusivity, by rejoicing in individuals who have created their own unique tales of pride and success.”
Walking the ramp with her sparkling charisma, Radhika Apte enthralled the audience with style and flair. Arunaja thrilled everyone with an energetic performance laced with contemporary beats and soulful vocals.

Therefore, it is elating to be associated with Blenders Pride Magical Nights and walk the ramp at this iconic platform to celebrate style.”
