Lakme Fashion Week is one of the most popular fashion shows in India. It is a star-studded event with designers from all across the nation putting their designs up for display. The fashion week began on August 22, 2018, in Mumbai and culminated on August 26, 2018. Designer Sanjukta Dutta’s collection was the last runway of the fashion week. Actress Hema Malini and daughter Esha Deol graced the runway as Dutta’s showstoppers. The mother and daughter duo looked stunning in Sanjukta’s designs.
Sanjukta Dutta centered her collection around the empowerment of Assamese women. The title of the collection is ‘Aboor’ and it consists of Assamese woven fabrics.
Esha Deol and Hema Malini both wore beautiful traditional Assamese dresses. Hema Malini wore ‘Mekhela Chador’ in multicolor along with a traditional waistband (kamarband). Esha Deol, on the other hand, wore a traditional bridal dress in pink and gold color. Sanjukta Dutta completed both the looks with maang tikkas and red bindis.
The duo looked like a vision to behold walking the ramp, but what happened after it was not at all expected. Post the ramp walk, the mother-daughter went backstage along with the designer. There Hema Malini talked at length praising the designer and appreciating her work. She then went on to add that they were also there to promote Esha Deol’s short film Cakewalk.
But as soon as Esha took the mic, anchor interrupted and asked all to ask such questions in the post-show conference. Being interrupted mid-conversation naturally left Esha Deol miffed. Later when a reporter asked about the Cakewalk instead of the ramp walk, Esha asked the anchor to answer the questions herself. Esha handed the mic over to the anchor and walked off. She also took Hema Malini with her.
Check out the whole incident of Esha Deol walking out of the event in the video below:
What do you think of Esha Deol walking out of the event? Was the anchor justified in interrupting the actress or not?
