The grand opening of the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week was like a reunion for several B-town girls of the ’90s. One could see Kajol, Urmila Matondkar and Sonali Bendre Behl bonding over fashion, conversations and their common friendship with Manish Malhotra. While they couldn’t stop raving about the designer’s summer collection, they also couldn’t get enough of the paparazzi’s attention as they stood on the runway to pose for one picture after another, before the event. They were also seen playing Chinese whispers in between, while pointing at certain models. We wonder what the conversation was all about?
Sonakshi Sinha has certainly come a long way since her days as a stylist. At the recently-concluded Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014, the actress turned show- stopper for good friend and designer Manish Malhotra’s showcase. While most showstoppers turn up after all the models do their bit, Sinha came up the ramp rather unexpectedly in the first few minutes of the showcase. Everybody in the audience was shocked to see the actor looking so fresh and thin, while a few whispered that it’s amazing to see the stylist-turned-actress rocking the ramp. “I remember running from the backstage to main stage area during my early days. Styling was good fun, but this ain’t that bad either,” stated Sinha, during the post event media interaction.
While most people prefer to date people from their own industry, Sonam Kapoor has a slightly different take on it. “I don’t usually, as a rule, date actors,” she says, further adding that relationships where the woman is more successful than a man, don’t work. “As someone who is successful, I’ve actually never consciously dated someone who’s successful on paper. And to be honest, they’ve not been very successful relationships because there’s been an ego clash, or my work has taken priority. So I guess, such relationships don’t work.” Guess, there’s a lot one can learn from this Kapoor girl’s relationship fundas!
