MUMBAI - Two charismatic stars - Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan - dazzled as the showstoppers for Karan Johar and Varun Bahl’s show at the HDIL-India Couture Week here, but it was Shah Rukh Khan who stole the show with his dimpled smile and impromptu jig.
With Big B and Hrithik walking down the ramp with lan Thursday evening, the audience couldn’t have asked for more, as they electrified the atmosphere with their enigmatic and powerful personalities, but there was more to the drama.
As the two showstoppers - Amitabh Bachchan dressed in a black overcoat with aviators and Hrithik in a military jacket - came to take the final bow with the designers, Karan suggested that they get King Khan, who was sitting in the first row, on the ramp too.
So they walked back and Big B gave his hand to SRK, pulled him onto the ramp while the audience, which included a host of Bollywood celebrities, cheered and clapped seeing the three “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham” stars walk together.
Then SRK broke into a jig and asked Amitabh and Hrithik to join in too, much to the joy of the audience.
It all ended with much male bonding as Shah Rukh hugged the Big B and Hrithik, wishing them “All the best”.
The big stars on the ramp apart, Karan’s show had a galaxy of celebrities in attendance - Preity Zinta, sisters Karishma and Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor with daughter Sonam, Rani Mukerji, Shah Rukh’s wife Gauri, Hrithik’s wife Suzzane, Urmila Matondkar, Raveena Tandon, Rahul Khanna, Dino Morea amongst many others.
The celeb quotient sure set the ball rolling for the designers.
Talking about the number of stars spotted during his show, Karan said: “The idea was to get people together with whom I connect personally. It was all about having friends and family supporting you.”
The designers had showcased a power-packed menswear range on the ramp.
The two had designed some interesting jackets with asymmetrical button patterns, slim fit trousers, waistcoats, military jackets and long overcoats as well.
