  • ILA Kumar Valia, I have respected her for the last 15 years ever since I met her as the Director of Shoot Talent Management. She always has the unique power of scouting the right candidates to be a Super Star, with her vast experience in the industry and her huge global travel experience she understands the potential in a talent who can go ahead a long way. Ila is extremely dedicated and organised in her planning and execution to make a success of any business she takes charge. | Liza Varma

  • I had first met ILA when she managed me after winning the Miss India title in 2005. At first look she looked rather unassuming and sweet but mind you here was a fireball who meant business and was completely no nonsense! I learnt many ropes of the trade from her and the quality to say no when needed. ILA has been naturally protective of all her prodigies yet inculcating a sharp business acumen in us. She has been a friend and there is no better person than her to mentor and shape future talents. I wish her nothing but the best in her new innings. | Amrita Thapar
