Veteran actress Shabana Azmi will soon celebrate the 5th year of the annual Mijwan fashion show by Manish Malhotra. The theme for the show this year is Mijwan – The Legacy which epitomises the continuing realisation of Kaifi Azmi, the legendary poet and father of Shabana.
While this fashion show is always packed with the biggest stars from the film industry, this year mother-daughter duo Alia Bhatt and Soni Razdan will be seen walking together
Namrata Goyal says “We are very humbled that Soni Razdan and Alia Bhatt are also the part of the Mijwan Welfare Society. We truly feel that’s its going to be the great show and we are very thankful to the industry who have agreed to support the Mijwan Welfare Society by walking the ramp and they have been very forthcoming. We are happy that they all will be the part of Kaifi Saab’s legacy and are helping us to take it forward…”
When we contacted Shabana seeking for a confirmation on the news, she said, “I believe the film industry is like a large family. We come together in joy and sorrow. I am overwhelmed that Shatru (Shatrughan Sinha) is walking the ramp with Sonakshi (Sinha) for the very first time. Anil (Kapoor) and Sonam (Kapoor), Javed (Akhtar) Saab and Farhan (Akhtar) have never walked together before neither have the Bachchans. Shankar and Sidharth Mahadevan are singing live. What would be more befitting for our theme this year Mijwan- The Legacy! A legacy Kaifi Saab has passed to me and I to my god-daughter Namrata Goyal. Manish Malhotra’s creations this time are going to be different. We have 5 people coming from Mijwan. I cannot even begin to tell you how empowering is it for them to watch their craft being showcased by the film industry’s leading stars. I am deeply deeply grateful to all my colleagues.”
