It was a treat watching some of the most stylish and iconic male stars of Indian cinema walk down the ramp in coutre by Manish Malhotra.
It is rare to see stalwarts like them all together on the same “ramp”. Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Farhan Akhtar, Ranbir Kapoor and Sidharta Malhotra walked with aplomb and impeccable style.
The stars on the ramp and in the audience came out in full strength to support Mijwan an NGO in Uttar Pradesh run by the powerhouse actor Shabana Azmi. Mijwan was started by her father the late Kaifi Azmi and its mission is to provide education and vocational training to girls and women in order to empower them for the future as well as benefit from earning a livelihood in a largely patriarchal system.
Manish Malhotra is also very commiteed to the cause and has adopted chikankari centers in Mijwan, Uttar Pradesh.
Manish Malhotra’s creations were jaw dropping. The intricate embroidery, chikankari and the flamboyant and regal style of the jackets, kurtas and sherwanis left everyone gasping for breath – not to mention that our handsome “heroes” upped the style meter to hot … super hot!!
