He has been a charmer on the cricket field all through his career, but Anil Kumble also proved his mettle as a showstopper on the fashion runway Friday as he walked the Van Heusen India Mens Week (VHIMW) ramp confidently and with an electrifying smile for designer Manoviraj Khosla.
"Anil Kumble looked every bit of a star on the ramp. Though he is a star, he was extremely confident and looked great on the ramp," Khosla told reporters after the show.
Kumble wore a formal look, with a classic black suit complete with a black and white tie, while model-turned-Bollywood actor Dino Morea looked smart yet graceful in a pristine white dinner jacket with black slim fit trousers.
For Dino, a former supermodel, walking the ramp as a showstopper was "exciting".
Having entered Bollywood, he said: "I miss modelling. There is always so much excitement and energy on the ramp. I have walked the ramp after a long time and I was a little nervous."
Khosla's collection comprised zipper and Nehru jackets, t-shirts with foil prints, waist coats, formal suits teamed with leather, linen and suede pants in various styles.
The colours ranged from white to milky blue, pastel green, burnt orange, coffee brown, steel gray and black.
