A glittering extravaganza of fashion tour, star fashion diva landed in Hyderabad ramp to become a showstopper. A catchy and pride momemt for Bebo fans in city of Nizams.
Walking down the ramp in a shimmering grey and silver lehenga as if she owns the runway was actor Kareena Kapoor Khan who turned showstopper for the 15th Blender’s Pride Fashion Tour for fashion designer Manish Malhotra.
Kareena Kapoor Khan is the perfect style icon of Bollywood and there are no second thoughts about it. The diva has been setting up new trends in the industry be it by ditching the lavish wedding and opting for a simple court marriage, giving ultimate pregnancy style statements and of course making a grand comeback post the birth of her son Taimur Ali Khan. There has been no stopping for Bebo and we love watching her swag. Interestingly, it isn’t the aam aadmi who is in awe of her panache but celebs like designer Manish Malhotra also can’t get enough her elegance.
No wonder, the ace designer has roped in Kareena to turn his muse once again. Interestingly, she will be walking the ramp with the nation’s heartthrob Kartik Aaryan and the duo is expected to set the stage on fire at an event to be held in Hyderabad. To note, this isn’t the first time that Kareena and Kartik will be walking the ramp together. Earlier, the duo had turned showstopper for Manish Malhotra’s summer couture collection in an event in Singapore in 2018.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kartik Aaryan is looking forward to the release of Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming directorial Love Aaj Kal opposite Sara Ali Khan. Besides, he is also working on in the much awaited sequel of Bhool Bhulaiyaa. On the other hand, Kareen Kapoor Khan, who was seen in Akshay Kumar starrer Good Newwz, will be seen in Irrfan Khan starrer Angrezi Medium along with Karan Johar’s multi-starrer period drama Takht.
As Kareena Kapoor Khan completes 20 years in the industry this year, the actor strutted the ramp for the first time in Hyderabad. While speaking to #KhabarLive, the ‘Jab We Met’ actor shared her excitement about her association with the event.
“I feel honoured to be a part of this celebration. I adore Manish for his work and he is a dear friend of mine as well. I feel he is the only designer who understands fashion dynamics as well as Indian movie business which is a rare combo. He completed 30 years in the industry and each time, he takes his collection to next level. He is a master of presenting a mix-match collection between contemporary and traditional.”
When asked about her look for the event she said with confidence, “If it’s Manish then it’s definitely glamorous.”
The ‘Heroine’ of Bollywood is known for her multi-tasking roles in reel and real life. The actor said, “This year’s theme of Blender’s Pride Fashion Tour, ‘My Identity, My Pride’, is really special. I am an independent woman and a modern mother who knows how to handle her work. This constitutes my identity and I take great pride in it.”
Her 20 year journey in fashion and industry has been a transforming one. “Well at least my hair isn’t golden anymore,” she chuckles, “If I look back to that time I would never have it. It was trendy at that time to get your hair all coloured. It’s all about evolution and reinvention with time. And it’s not just about fashion. As an actor, it’s important to keep reinventing your characters that relate to the audience. For me, relatability factor is important.”
The actor also talked about her Hyderabadi connection. “I used to accompany Karishma to her shoots in the city when I was 10-11 years old and that’s how I got comfortable here. I love idlis and dosas. I am impressed with the new highways and better roads that have come up here.”
Kareena was last seen in 2019 movie Good Newwz starring Akshay Kumar, Diljeet Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. She is currently working for Irrfan Khan-starrer Angrezi Medium and Karan Johar’s Takht. #KhabarLive
