Like every year, this year too, the film fraternity turned up in large numbers to celebrate the 6th year of the Annual Mijwan fundraiser fashion show by Manish Malhotra, ‘Mijwan Summer 2017’.
The evening witnessed several Bollywood celebrities including Neetu Singh, Sridevi, Ramesh Sippy with wife Kiran Juneja, Sushmita Sen, Farah Khan, Anupam Kher, Huma Qureshi, Sooraj Pancholi, Sangeeta Bijlani, Saiyami Kher, Sophie Choudry, Konkona Sen Sharma, Amyra Dastur, Punit Malhotra, Shriya Saran, Satish Kaushik, Kiran Rao, Nandita Das, Freddy Daruwala and Dr Madhu Chopra among others.
Everyone present for the show loved the chikankari work done by the Mijwan girls on the outfits showcased by designer Manish Malhotra. A beautiful evening spent in supporting a cause, an NGO that works towards the empowerment and education of a girl child.
The show, befitting of this year’s theme, saw superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma gracing the show and walking the ramp. It epitomizes the continuing realization of Kaifi Saab’s vision and the wonderful legacy of hope for his village, Mijwan.
Kaifi Saheb spoke of this legacy through his words:
Main Akela Hi Chala Tha Jaanibe Manzil Magar
Log Saath Aate Gaye
Aur Karvaan Banta Gaya
