Last night, Mumbai honoured the spirit and perseverance of such women from all walks of life, who made successes of their lives despite the odds being against them.
Choreographer Saroj Khan, tennis player Sania Mirza, and social worker Sindhutai Sakpal were among those who were honoured at the Prerna Women's Awards.
Hosted by Cyrus Broacha and Mini Mathur, the awards night also had plenty of laughs and plenty of sizzle - the latter provided by a sultry Malaika Arora Khan and a sexy Jacqueline Fernandez.
Also spotted at the event were Hrishita Bhatt, Divya Dutta, Meiyang Chang, Payal Rahtogi and other stars.
