Mandira Bedi, who had the popular
character Gutthi from Comedy Nights With
Kapil, played by Sunil Grover, walk the ramp to showcase
her latest sari collection on the ramp, says the loud cheers were
testimony to the popularity of the character.
"I wanted a lovable character who appeals to people across the
board. Gutthi is absolutely adorable. And she does cut across a
cross-section of admirers," Mandira said.
Her show was held as part of a fashion event Oct 5. "It was
about masti (fun). By inviting Gutthi to walk the ramp, I wanted to
take the fun aspect of the pageant to a new level. And my
collection, with all its happy colours, was called 'Joie de vivre'.
Who better to end my show than someone who has given so many people
joy and laughter," asked the actress-anchor-designer.
Mandira says Gutthi brought the house down. "I've never heard
such loud cheers at any fashion show. Gutthi got more applause than
the biggest of supermodels. Every pose, every move that she made;
every step she took, triggered off massive applause. It was
unbelievable! I was taken aback by the response. People simply
loved her. It was amazing," she said.
According to Mandira, it wasn't only the cross-dressing that
appealed to the ramp watchers. "It wasn't about a man dressed as a
man as much as it was about an extremely popular and loved
character that was draped in a beautiful sari," she added.
