A total of 15 women from different walks of life, including actress Usha Jadhav and former police officer Kiran Bedi were honoured as beauty brand L'Oreal Paris and women's magazine Femina Thursday came together to celebrate Indian women achievers.
The third edition of the L'Oreal Paris Femina Women Awards 2014 also brought together three brand ambassadors of L'Oreal - Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Katrina Kaif - under one roof for this unique award function.
"Women who are being awarded today are very special as they have worked selflessly. They have a huge contribution in making a difference. It's an unique award in itself and I am proud to be associated with it," Katrina told IANS.
The awards honoured women who have worked selflessly for their communities across 14 categories, including social impact, community causes, science and innovation and education among others.
Aishwarya, Sonam, Katrina along with Akshay Kumar, Neha Dhupia, Anupam Kher, Swati Piramal, Sabyasachi, and Zarina Screwvala were part of the jury.
