Speaking about the event, Chopra said, “DIVA’NI was an idea that truly excited by husband. When we decided to create the first range of cinema inspired clothing for women, my husband wanted to be an active part of the designing and execution, but it was not to be, and he left us in the initial stages. My family then decided to bring it to fruition.”

“Everyone knows that Yash [Chopra] believed that his heroine was a diva. He enamoured many generations of cinema lovers with the portrayal of his heroines. I am very happy at this outing of YRF, and I am sure Yash is too, somewhere up there.” Pamela Chopra continued.

The warm welcome given to us by such stalwarts of the industry has strengthened our belief that India needs a brand like DIVA’NI to showcase the sheer magic of cinema that like the proverbial high tide, has swept real life divas off their feet. And it is this magic of Indian celluloid that our brand tries to rekindle.”
