Both the Khans were bitterly vying for the HDIL Couture Week (October 11-16) finale to showcase their lines, but it is Shah Rukh Khan, and not Salman Khan who will walk the ramp at the finale.
SRK has certainly snatched the limelight away from Sallu, who will now have to be content with showcasing his collection on Oct 13.
While SRK will be walking with his wife Gauri Khan for the launch of Karan Johar’s clothesline, Salman will walk to display his charity clothesline, Being Human. Even though Salman's gang included biggies like Aamir Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar, he couldn't make it to the final event.
A source informs a daily, “Both Shah Rukh and Salman were keen to do the grand finale. A grand finale in a fashion event is always very special.”
It’s interesting that Shah Rukh managed to elbow out Salman despite the fact that Salman’s endorsement manager and the couture week event organiser is the same person, Reshma Shetty.
Confirming that Shah Rukh will walk the grand finale, Reshma tells a daily, “Salman did not want the grand finale. He is walking for charity. His show is not the couture show per se. He and the other actors with him will walk the ramp on Oct 13. We had blocked the dates of every star walking in the event two months ago. Salman won’t even be here in Mumbai on the day of the grand finale.”
