“I’m delighted to be a part of this wonderful startup initiative that has been initiated by Britannia Marie Gold. I have grown up in a family with very strong-willed and self-believing women who have challenged stereotypes and have gone ahead of their times and accomplished their goals. “Dhonni Meyer Upakkhan” is a tremendously innovative show, I think. And hosting this particular show will always be a very special thing in my career and will hold a very special place in my heart because through the show, I got to meet so many wonderful women from all over West Bengal, who have the creativity and the zeal and the spirit to start their own business ventures. And I would like to thank Britannia Marie Gold and it’s great news for everyone that they have actually stepped in to start this wonderful initiative whereby they want to create a support system for women who want to scale new heights with their business ventures. I think these womenpreneurs’ will set great examples for future generations and for more women entrepreneurs to come forward and start their own ventures. Thank you very much Britannia Marie Gold for making me a part of this.”
