Mumbai: A rare razzmatazz - that's what Bollywood star Ranveer Singh brought to the closing day of a fashion extravaganza here by amalgamating his reel avatar as a rapper from his forthcoming film "Gully Boy" with his real exuberant self.


Ranveer brought the house down at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019 here on Sunday as he rapped live while walking the ramp with his "Gully Boys" gang to showcase a unique fashion line, GullyGen.

"I could feel the energy on the stage when I was on the ramp. I still get nervous even though it has been a decade. Still the fear of 'Oh my God, will I look okay? And how is it going to be' is there. But today, I think it was just a powerful feeling," Kareena said after the show.

"The concept of the show by Shantanu and Nikhil was just so noble and brilliant. I am absolutely honoured to walk for them," said Kareena.

This season, the designers brought alive Lakme's beauty theme, Matte Reinvent, which is all about being bold, intensely matte and yet comfortably glamorous.

The narrative of Ultimate Recruit surrounded strong Indian woman who is in control to advocate a change in guard, being driven by fellow strong women who represent the millennial energy of our country, the designers said here.
