Actress Kareena Kapoor might walk the ramp at
the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Week, to be held in
the first week of August. The forthcoming edition will be held from
Even earlier, Bebo had walked as the show stopper for designer
friend Manish Malhotra during Lakme Fashion Week, 2011. "Kareena
walked for Manish Malhotra two seasons ago and we have shared the
work with her. We are already working with her (for this season).
Kareena is taking out time for that," Purnima Lamba, head
(Innovations), Lakme, told IANS.
"At this point we have not decided the prospect of it but
Kareena is very excited to walk for us. So, she might be the show
stopper," she further said. She also revealed that this year, there
will be two grand finales - One by Kallol Dutta and other by
Pankaj-Nidhi. On being asked, if there is a risk by taking fresh
designers for the grand finale, Lamba said, "The concept of
bringing fresh perspective for the finale was a very exciting one.
So we were very thrilled to get them on board. I don't see any risk
in this as it is my responsibility to give them a voice. Also it is
interesting from a creative point of view, as both of them have
their individual style."
