I am so proud that as Wizzes, that’s what we have managed to do. We didn’t let it get us down, we kept going. I am so proud to see everyone stay motivated and let’s stay this way and keep creating Wiz magic.

Happy 33rd anniversary, Wizcraft, and all the Wizzes.”

Be it the Michael Jackson live concert, 50 years of India’s Independence, Commonwealth Games or IIFAs across the world - it has been exciting, a roller-coaster of happiness, joy and excitement. We have lived in the world of physical, we have executed in the world of digital and we now live in the world of phygital.
