Hamza Ali Abbasi rubs shoulders with Aishwarya Rai in Doha

Several Pakistani and Indian celebrities were seen recently hanging out at Bollywood designer Manish Malhotra’s fashion show in Doha, Qatar.

Strikingly beautiful former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shared the stage with Pakistani models, Sadaf Kanwal, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Husnain Lehri and Azaan Sami Khan.

Famed Pakistani makeup artist Nabila served as the official makeup stylist at the event, where the Bollywood designer was showcasing his fall/ winter couture collection titled ‘Zween’.

Donning glaringly beautiful ice-blue ensemble designed by Manish, Sadaf Kanwal walked down the ramp, while Hamza was sporting elegant traditional black sherwani.

Such sights of artists coming together from across the border are rare.

On this occasion Aish and Manish lavished each other with complimentary remarks.

β€œAishwarya is not only a dear friend but has also been my design muse for many years now. Having worked with her in various films, runway shows and red carpet appearances, it has always been a pleasure, given her strong work ethic,” Manish said.

Introducing the designer as her friend, the Devdas protagonist said, “It is absolute pleasure to walk for you Manish, as always. He is a dear dear friend as he has already told you, we have known each others for years. We have done some commercials at the very beginning of my career and that’s when we first met, but the feeling is mutual from then till date. He is the same passionate, committed, driven, excited with a child-like fervor.”
