Walking the ramp with Saif was special: Kareena

MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, who strutted down the ramp for her friend Manish Malhotra’s bridal collection at the ongoing HDIL India Couture Week here with her boyfriend Saif Ali Khan, says it was a very special show for her.

“I have walked the ramp so many times in the past for my friend Manish, but this was different and very special because for the first time I was walking with Saif. It’s always a special feeling to be with him, “ Kareena told after the show. Added Saif: “Yeah, it was a lot of fun. We had fun during rehearsals as well.”

While sashaying down the ramp Kareena kept looking at the audiences smilingly while Saif managed to keep a poker face. The front row was occupied by an array of Bollywood celebrities who had to squeeze in to get a place in the jam-packed show area.

Priyanka Chopra, Preity Zinta, Kajol, Imran Khan, Dino Morea, Uday Chopra, Sophie Chaudhary, and Boney Kapoor and Sridevi who came with their daughters, added to the glamour quotient.

The collection was called “Destination Wedding” and the set decorated with white drapes falling from the rooftop looked like a dream sequence of a Bollywood movie. The background music had chartbusters from Hindi films like “Emotional Atayachaar”, “Twist”, “Chor Bazzari” among others.

The line had an interesting combination of colours like peach, ivory and beige. With minimalist embroidery and a lot of bling, Malhotra’s collection was stylish and at the same time sexy as well. “These days many people in India are having their wedding out of their country. Last month I designed for a wedding in Portugal. I want people to know what colours and silhouettes should be worn at such weddings, “ said Malhotra. The range had everything a bride could dream of - from lehengas to off-shoulder kurtas, from long jackets to stylish cholis (blouse).
