It happened on 11th April 2016, at the Astor Ballroom, at The St. Regis, Mumbai. An evening that was the epitome of style and a truly luxurious mélange of personalities representing the zenith of achievement across Royalty, Cinema, Business, Sports, Fashion, the Arts and Humanitarian endeavour.
India’s most prestigious personality-based awards, the HELLO! Hall of Fame Awards, is the most highly-sought after invitation on the society register, year after year. Because when India’s premiere lifestyle and people magazine says HELLO! it means you are truly celebrated and an exclusive achiever.
All of six years ago, HELLO! magazine hosted its very first HELLO! Hall of Fame Awards. The idea was to bring the world of HELLO! alive in real time with the assembling of titans from all walks of society. Over the years, the awards have become bigger, more luminous and more cutting edge.

Just like the magazine has become the place to get up-close and personal with the country’s who’s who, our awards edition, out in May, will bring you up-to-the-moment with our powerful roster of winners, selected from a wide list of nominees across all categories.
