A host of Bollywood stars will be in the Capital as showstoppers and front row guests at the PCJ Delhi Couture Week.
While actor Sharmila Tagore walked the ramp for designer duo Ashima-Leena last night, actor Madhuri Dixit-Nene will make her ramp debut for designer Anju Modi today. “My collection revolves around a strong, passionate, awe-inspiring woman and I think Madhuri fits the bill perfectly,” says Modi.
On day four, actor Katrina Kaif is expected to walk the ramp as the showstopper for designer Manish Malhotra, reveal sources. Filmmaker Karan Johar and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter Alia Bhatt, who is making her debut with Johar’s Student Of The Year, will be seen cheering the designer from the front row. “This is the first time that Karan will be bringing Alia to Delhi. I’m very happy,” says Malhotra.Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who is closing the Couture Week in Delhi, is bringing actor Sridevi as a front row guest for his show. Designer Manav Gangwani, who is also showcasing on the last day, promises to add more Bollywood glamour with his show. "I don’t want to take any names yet, but there will be a lot of film actors attending my show," he says.
She’s had enough with actor-son Saif Ali Khan’s upcoming wedding. “I’m not talking about it,” says Sharmila Tagore. It was the veteran actor, who first announced October 16 as the chosen date for the Saif-Kareena wedding. Later, Saif denied it, and it was reported that Kareena had called it off. This was after Sanjay Leela Bhansali apparently chose to drop her from Ram Leela, his adaptation of Romeo-Juliet, as he didn’t want a ‘married Juliet’.
Now, the mom-in-law to-be, is happy playing showstopper for designer duo Ashima-Leena at the Delhi Couture Week. About walking the ramp, she says, “I’ve known Ashima-Leena for some years now and I like their clothes, so I agreed.”
Ask her if actors take away the focus from the designer, and she says, “I don’t think so... I wore something that suits me, and appeared at the end of the show... not like the younger actors like Deepika (Padukone), who are eagerly awaited.”
