Manish remains a prolific fashion designer and has one of the most successful labels in the country. His fashion shows invariably see leading Bollywood ladies and men as his show stoppers. Among his closest Bollywood friends was the late Sridevi. He remains close with the actor’s daughters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor.

Manish in a tribute note had written that he had never lost anyone as close as Sridevi. “This is the first time I’ve lost someone so close, and it feels surreal. I’d known her for 28 years. We were at a wedding together and then, out of nowhere, her sister Srilatha was handing me a silk sari for her funeral. I spoke to her the night she passed away. We talked about everything under the sun, from Janhvi’s film, how beautiful Khushi looked at the wedding to even what she had eaten earlier that day. Even now, so many days later, I still expect my phone to ring, and to hear her discuss an outfit or a project which we can work on together,” he had written.
