Big B, Hema’s catwalk


The music launch of Ravi Chopra’s Babul, a film with a strong social message, was a glitzy affair with the entire cast walking the ramp and the who’s who of Bollywood in attendance. Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Salman Khan, Rani Mukerji and John Abraham strutted the ramp in Neeta Lulla and Alvira Khan’s creations. But it was Amitabh and Hema who turned out to be the show stealers on October 26.

The audience was ecstatic when Amitabh, dressed in a black suit, escorted the dream girl, who was shimmering in a black sari.

Jaya Bachchan, who was present with daughter Shweta Nanda, told mediapersons: “I

was asked to come early. I don’t know what’s happening around. I am waiting to see him (Amitabh).”

Said actress Isha Koppikar: “I have never seen him (Amitabh) walk the ramp. So I have come to see his long strides.”
