SAB TV has organized a similar event on March 8 for its female actors to unwind and celebrate. In an official press note, Anooj Kapoor, Business Head and Executive Vice President, SAB TV said, “It is indeed a very special day for women all around the world and today we at SAB decided to make this day even more special and bring a smile on the faces of our leading ladies and their fans as they interacted with the general public today. SAB TV is known to engage viewers with complete fun-filled family entertainment and has strong female protagonists who have been bringing smiles to people’s homes every day. I take this opportunity to thank them all for being a part of the SAB family.”
