The BIG Television Awards was graced by the presence of the biggest Shaksiyat on television; Amitabh Bachchan who led the pack of the biggest, brightest and super-talented TV stars.

Bhojpuri star Ravi Kissen and the ever energetic Dolly Bindra were seen attending the event along with music composer Annu Mallik, yester-years star Arun Irani and the two Roadies, Rannvijay Singh and Raghu Ram.

The oh-so-romantic jodis, Sai Dodhar - Shakti Anand, Shewta Kawtatra – Manav Gohel and Vivian Dsena – Vahbbizz Dorabjee were in full form.

With the entire television industry coming down for their biggest night, emotions were high. That was the night when BIG Television Awards pioneered the idea to reward emotions that the characters evoked and touched the viewers’ everyday. The BIG Television Awards, conceptualised to create a unique platform where India chooses its favourite characters across popular shows in India, witnessed the glitterati of the entertainment world in high attendance.

BIG Television Awards put together a list of 23 categories which was finalized by the esteemed jury panel consisting of the evergreen and sensuous - Zeenat Aman; small screen’s most loved bahu – Smriti Irani & seasoned actor, director and producer - Sachin Pilgaonkar. After days of scouring the numerous videos of TV shows across channels, the jury members put their vast experience and unbiased opinions along with audiences who have voted in large numbers to decide the winners.

On the occasion, Rabe T. Iyer, Business Head- BIG LIVE & BIG STREET said, “Television plays an important role in giving us wholesome entertainment every day. With an initiative like BIG Television Awards, our endeavor is to felicitate the characters and the emotions that are close to audiences’ heart. In the past, awards have been given to the actors and characters but never to those emotions that have touched the viewers’ hearts. We have set a benchmark by creating such a property for Hindi entertainment channels and we aim to grow bigger and better next year.”

The award had categories like Big Bhavuk Character, Big Teekha Character, Big Garma Garam Jodi and various others.
