Daggubati Frog and Tejaswini Manogna, who were special guests on the occasion, appreciated the students. All the fashion and style choices I've made in my time as an actor have been influenced by people from NIFT . I really admire designers and design students for choosing art over all. Keep creating and keep expressing yourself through your art, Rana told the cheers of the students. The two-day festival came to an end with stellar performances by Gippy Grewal and rapper Spacetime, which made the students become fashionable with their party hits.
