Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor will turn showstoppers for ace designer Manish Malhotra. They will be walking at the much awaited Mijwan Fashion Show, 2018.
Shabana Azmi hosts the show every year with the goal of creating employment opportunities for women and reviving the art of embroidery. Each year, A-list celebs walk the ramp to create awareness about the Mijwan Welfare Foundation, founded by Shabana Azmi’s father Kaifi Azmi. Manish Malhotra will be putting up a spectacular show, ‘The Walk of Mijwan’. This is the 9th annual fundraiser for Mijwan.
Ranbir Kapoor has been the Goodwill Ambassador of Mijwan Welfare Society since 2014.
Confirming the news, Namrata Goyal, who runs the NGO with Shabana Azmi said, “This will be the first time that Deepika Padukone walks the ramp for the Mijwan Fashion show and we are so excited to have her support us.”
Deepika shared EXCLUSIVELY with us, “I have walked the ramp many times before, but this is truly a fashion show with a difference because Manish Malhotra bridges the urban – rural divide by taking the traditional craft of chikankari and fashioning it into contemporary silhouettes in his signature style.Mijwan Welfare Societys work over the last 9 years has been instrumental in giving the women and girl children of Mijwan the confidence to negotiate a better future for themselves. Congratulations to Shabanaji and Namrata for carrying forward Kaifi Saheb’s dream and inspiring us to become active participants in the process of change.”
