Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor Walk the Ramp at IIM Ahmedabad

Salman Khan walked the ramp with his Prem Ratan Dhan Payo co-star Sonam Kapoor at the IIM campus here to promote khadi as a part of Fashion Design Council of India’s ‘Huts to High Street’ initiative.

In keeping with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to make khadi fashionable again, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), a non-profit organisation, presented the second edition of its unique initiative to display the capabilities of the humble fabric at Louis Kahn Plaza of the IIM on Friday night.

The special showcasing was in association with the Gujarat State Khadi & Village Industries Board (GSKVIB).

On the occasion, some renowned designers like Rohit Bal and Rajesh Pratap Singh along with young faces like Pero by Aneeth Arora and 11.11 /Elevan Elevan showcased collections soaked in Indian heritage.

The designers presented innovative modern twists to hands pun and woven embroideries but what all the guests at the fashion gala were waiting for was to see their favourite Khan walk the ramp. And he did not disappoint.

Salman Khan was joined by Sonam who stole the show with a one-piece long dress teamed up with a long jacket.

While the actress looked stunning and made another successful appearance on the ramp, it was Salman who made the audience, especially the students of NIIFT and IIM, crazy with his presence.

Both of them made an appearance again on the ramp, showcasing outfits designed by Rohit Bal.

Salman also took the opportunity to share his opinion on khadi and asked youngsters to include some of the khadi pieces in their wardrobe.

“It is a not only a well-priced fabric but is also very beautiful, durable and strong. What else do we need? I am not saying that don’t wear anything else but at least own few pieces of khadi in your wardrobe even if it’s a shirt, pant, shawl of muffler. We should be proud of wearing khadi and I believe that once we actors start taking over khadi than politicians, it will do much better,” Salman  said.
