Filmmaker Karan Johar and Sonakshi Sinha walked the ramp together for fashion designer Shane and Falguni Peacock on Friday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Karan Johar said Ranveer Singh has become the brand ambassador of edgy fashion.
Actress Sonakshi Sinha started the show in a black embroidered jacket with fluid pants and a bralet; while beatboxers rocked on the ramp throughout the show and hip-hop dancers added some moves on the catwalk, to set the mood for the “Rebel” show.
Whereas, Filmmaker Karan Johar confidently strutted down as a showstopper with great style in a silver/black glittering peacock embellished jacket with white side-striped pants, waistcoat and topped the look with silver hair.
When asked Karan whether he was apprehensive before walking the ramp as he wore the quirky outfit to walk the ramp, he said, “Fortunately, when you have Ranveer Singh in the film industry, then whatever you wear and do, people will accept that because he has raised the fashion bar. I think this can be Ranveer Singh’s favorite collection. In fact, I applaud or adore him for completely taking men’s fashion altogether to a different level. He has become a brand ambassador for edgy fashion so whatever we do after him it looks than less than him so I wasn’t apprehensive and I enjoyed it. I like to wear such colorful and vibrant outfits”
When asked Karan whether he and Sonakshi Sinha walked together to promote their upcoming film ‘Welcome To New York’, Karan said, “Actually that wasn’t the plan. We are very proud to be part of ‘Welcome To New York’ but that wasn’t the plan. It just so happened and it might look like the promotion of our film but it is not. We had intended for fashion and not for film.”
Sonakshi Sinha added to Karan Johar’s statement saying, “I think that was not the intention but it is more of an Iffefaq (Coincidence) which were my last film with Karan (Johar). I am really happy that I am getting to share screen space with Karan and today we got to share catwalk together and I think it was fab collection and there is no better way to start of our fashion journey together as well”
