Gojiyo was lauded for taking this initiative and creating memorable moments for everyone present at the event. The Gojiyo team left no stone unturned for creating a similar out-of-the-world experience for its patrons in the real world. In the real world, the successful Gojiyo 'avatars' found themselves competing with none other than Hrithik, Katrina, Farhan, Abhay & Kalki.
