Mumbai: Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan was recently seen at the ramp at Shabana Azmi’s NGO Mijwan Welfare Society (MWS). As per the updates, actor walked the ramp with his daughter Shweta Bachchan-Nanda and was happy to be a part of the event.
In relation to this actor Amitabh Bachchan said over his blog, “…the cause is bigger than the ramp. Mijwan is a small town in UP, and Shabana Azmi’s father came from there. Every year now Shabana conducts this ramp fashion show to collect money for the very skilled villagers of Mijwan who do exquisite work on clothes,”
He added, “They are poor people… so we collect here and send it to them for their survival and encourage them to make the embroidery that you see. They are most talented in this intricate art on the cloth, indeed whatever we are wearing, all of us, has been done by these citizens of the region.”
The main aim behind the ramp walk is to encourage the women in Mijwan to increase their embroidery business.
Amitabh Bachchan was seen wearing a black and white sherwani and apart from him we had also spotted Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Sonakshi Sinha, Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Javed Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar on the ramp.
The design creations were done by Manish Malhotra.
