New Delhi (UNI): 'Sarod Rocks' was the slogan on one's chest and the other had 'Sarodmania' written across his. Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash, the sons of Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan, walked down the ramp for the first time today in a rollicking fashion show that gave a musical twist to the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week on its second day. Watching the brothers catwalk in black and white open sherwani with the slogan-printed T-shirt was father Amjad Ali Khan, who proudly sat in the front row for the 'Garden of Eden' collection by Manav Gangwani.
''I think Sarod rocks,'' said Amjad Ali Khan after the show. ''It was nice to walk down the ramp. Musicians, models and actors are all one family,'' said Amaan. ''Sarod rocks for me,'' he added. Designer Gangwani specially created the sherwani and the T-shirt with the slogans in silver print for the brothers, who received huge support from their mother Subalakshmi. ''It was my wife who said we should go and watch the show,'' said Amjad Ali Khan. ''After all, they were walking on the ramp for the first time.'' It was also the first time at a fashion event for the Sarod maestro and his wife, who were excited at the high profile event and the glamour associated with it. Amjad Ali Khan said those who work in the field of art and culture should help each other. ''We are all culturally connected to the multi-dimensions of the stage,'' he said.
