Shabana Azmi held her annual fashion show in aid of the girl child on Sunday. This year, she had a special showstopper — Shah Rukh Khan — walking the ramp. And the actress can’t stop raving about him.
“It was our grandest show. Shah Rukh was an absolute showstopper. He was charming and gracious. He held two of the local girls Shweta and Aditi close to his heart, complimented Shweta on her dimples, gave a very heart-warming speech on my father Kaifisaab and on the work we do.” He walked with Anushka, who was returning to this ramp a third time.
Adds Shabana, “My father was in anguish when he returned to the village where he was born, 40 years after he had left for Mumbai. Instead of giving up in despair, he decided to stay back and serve his village, and provide the girl child equal opportunity to rise to the full level of her potential.”
