High-powered guests at the ET Awards 2019 on the winners that captured their imagination.

"E Sreedharan’s story was inspiring — how he has done two successful metro projects, and at this age to have that kind of will power and zeal. He’s been invited to look at what could be done at Dal Lake in Srinagar, so every government today is seeking his sort of vision and experience. I also think Wipro is a classic example of a good corporate citizen. You can be profitable but also give back to society. And of course, Arun Jaitley. We all miss him."

Sachin Bansal, co-founder, Flipkart

"Bandhan Bank — Chandra Shekhar Ghosh managed in a short period of time to create a lot of value. They are a start-up bank, doing better than many big banks, that’s truly inspirational."

"I live with a success story. I’ve known (husband and Ola co-founder) Bhavish (Aggarwal) much before we got married. I’ve been with him along the journey. He is an inspiration for many, but for me in a special way, as I see him every day. It pushes me to be a better person and to work harder."

Prasoon Joshi, CEO, McCann Worldgroup India

​Prasoon Joshi (R) said Arunji Jaitley (L) left behind a void that can’t be filled.

"The most emotional success story has been Arunji (Jaitley). He has left behind a void that can’t be filled. I felt good about the metro work of E Sreedharan. That award is well deserved."

"Dr Sreedharan for the phenomenal achievement of running a government project the way he has. He is my father-in-law and his integrity has inspired me. I know four of the winners, Sriharsha Majety (Swiggy) was my junior in BITS Pilani. He has done some amazing work with Swiggy. I know Falguni (Nayar) from Nykaa well. We compete. It’s a story of how beauty as a business has grown. Sanjiv Mehta (HUL) is our largest supplier. He gave a great speech."
