Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor on Thursday walked the ramp at the 2018 Mijwan Fashion Show, wearing ensembles by designer Manish Malhotra. The two stars, who have worked together in multiple films such as Bachna Ae Haseeno and Tamasha, also collaborated for the show in 2014. This year marks the ninth edition of the walk, organised by Shabana Azmi’s NGO, Mijwan Welfare society.

Deepika wore an embellished floral lehenga while Ranbir wore a black bandhgala - both traditional ensembles designed by Malhotra.

Malhotra had earlier told IANS, “It gives me immense pleasure to share that Ranbir and Deepika will be walking the ramp for Mijwan, a project very close to my heart, on April 19 at JW Marriott. I am really glad that both Ranbir and Deepika’s health allows them to walk for my show. We are excited to showcase our design direction for Summer 2018 spotlighting the art of Chikankari. Both actors truly embody the global-Indian appeal that the collection stands for.”

The show itself was initially supposed to be held on April 9, however, it was postponed to April 19 as both Deepika and Ranbir had fallen ill. The rehearsal pictures and videos featured the actors walking the ramp. Manish had also shared pictures from fittings and rehearsals on his official Instagram handle. Celebrities present at the show include Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar, Mouni Roy, Neetu Kapoor, Kriti Kharbanda, Poonam Dhillon, Saqib Saleem, Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam.

Speaking about walking for the cause, Ranbir Kapoor said, “We, the young people of India, need to turn our attention towards rural India and focus on empowering the girl child. My sister Riddhima and I were raised as equals and I want every girl and boy to be treated equally. To my young friends, I say ‘Be the Change you wish to see in the world. You can do it and your time starts now’.”

Mijwan Welfare Society was started by actor Shabana Azmi to realise her father Kaifi Azmi’s dreams. Walk of Mijwan is held to showcase the fashion label associated with this welfare society.
