Making his love interest clear, Saawariya star Ranbir Kapoor blew a kiss straight from the ramp to actress Deepika Padukone.
Attired in a black and beige “sherwani” or Indian-style coat with intricate ethnic motifs at the hemline and sequin work at the collars, the star walked the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) ramp for designer Arjun Khanna.
The sherwani was tastefully teamed with beige churidar and red scarf to give a dramatic effect, the actor’s face and hair were painted golden.
“Before I came here I didn’t know that my face would be painted golden. Only when I reached the venue and sat on a chair (backstage) to get the make-up done, I got to know about it. But I enjoyed the whole experience,” Ranbir said.
He refused to comment on his romantic link-up with Deepika. Starting with his signature dance step from the title song of Saawariya, Ranbir descended on the ramp.
And then he spotted Deepika sitting next to his mother Neetu Singh. Cutting short his catwalk, he blew a flying kiss towards her. Deepika blushed and hid her face behind her cascade of hair.
“There couldn’t have a better confession of love than this. Ranbir made it clear at the LFW that Deepika is his love interest,” said Rashmi Singh, who attended the show.
Unlike his contemporaries, Ranbir did not take expert advice from his ladylove, who was a model by profession. “No I did not take any tips from Deepika before walking the ramp. I had never walked the ramp before. It was the first time for me but I was quite confident. It proved to be an excellent experience,” Ranbir said.
“Moreover, the Indian fashion industry is growing very fast and if I can contribute a little to it, it would be great,” he added.
When asked how fashion conscious he is, Ranbir said: “I am not fashionable at all. My knowledge about fashion is only through Arjun. Fashion for me is being comfortable.”
