SRK upstages Salman!
Itís official. Shah Rukh Khan and not Salman Khan will walk the ramp at the grand finale of the HDIL Couture Week to be held in Mumbai from October 11-16.
Both Khans had been bitterly vying for the finale to showcase their lines. In a constant show of one-upmanship, this round goes to King Khan. At the glam event, SRK will be in the limelight, while Salman has to be content with showcasing his collection on Oct 13. At any couture week, the grand finale has the most prestige and itís no wonder that both Khans had been eyeing the slot.
While Shah Rukh is walking with his wife Gauri Khan for the launch of Karan Joharís clothesline, Salman will walk to display his charity clothesline, Being Human. It is surprising that Salman could not make it to the grand finale despite having many aces up his sleeve: the biggest stars Aamir Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar will be walking with him on the ramp. Not so long ago, there was a buzz that Salman had edged out Shah Rukh for the grand finale.
A source says, ďBoth Shah Rukh and Salman were keen to do the grand finale. A grand finale in a fashion event is always very special.Ē
Itís interesting that Shah Rukh managed to elbow out Salman despite the fact that Salmanís endorsement manager and the couture week event organiser is the same person, Reshma Shetty.
Confirming that Shah Rukh will walk the grand finale, Reshma maintained, ďSalman did not want the grand finale. He is walking for charity. His show is not the couture show per se. He and the other actors with him will walk the ramp on Oct 13. We had blocked the dates of every star walking in the event two months ago. Salman wonít even be here in Mumbai on the day of the grand finale.Ē
