“We are celebrating a big ‘utsav’, 75 years of India’s independence. I am glad that on this historic day, Lulu Group’s ‘India Utsav’ is being celebrated. The festivity here is in sync with that across the country. Splashes of colour, cultural performances, celebration of our achievements and so many other things.”

“India is an emerging economic superpower and the visionary foreign policy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has led to stronger India-GCC ties and the UAE is emerging as one of India’s staunch business partners. I strongly believe that the LuLu Group can be a key player in this vision of the future for India,” Yusuffali underlined.
