It was a night of a glamorous celebration as Asia Spa magazine hosted its 15th annual AsiaSpa Awards 2019 in Mumbai. Several Bollywood A-Listers graced the event with their presence, including names like Sunny Leone, Kiara Advani, Urvashi Rautela, NushratBharucha, Dia Mirza, Rajkumar Rao, Daboo Ratnani, Aditi Rao Hydari, and more.

Meanwhile, this year’s event saw nominees, industry players and honored guests alike decked about in exquisite gowns, dresses, and pantsuits coming together to celebrate the much-anticipated evening. While Kiara preferred a baby pink ballroom gown for the occasion, Nushrat chose a rather seductive outfit in black and we are all hearts for it. Although we love the sleek semi-formal look by Rajkummar Rao and the sheer-ombre version of a silhouette adorned by Sunny Leone. Their attendance added some extra glam quotient to this already stunning night!
