The ever hot duo of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone was supposed to walk on the ramp together in the Mijwan Fashion Show on 9th april this year but owing to their ill health the event was cancelled at the eleventh hour.
A spokesperson of the event had said earlier ”We regret to inform you that the Mijwan Fashion Show scheduled in Mumbai at the Grand Hyatt on 9th April 2018 has been postponed by a week or so. Both our show stoppers Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have taken ill and we are waiting for them to recover. We will inform you as soon as a new date is finalised. Apologies for the inconvenience caused and hope you will bear with us.”
But the good news for the fans of Deepika and Ranbir is that the two will now walk on the ramp on 19th of this month.
Ranbir had said about walking for the show that “We, the young people of India, need to turn our attention towards rural India and focus on empowering the girl child. My sister Riddhima and I were raised as equals and I want every girl and boy to be treated equally.
Deepika too shared with us saying “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 Societyswork 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.”
