On her arrival in the morning, Salman showed her the black-and-white fabric painted with the saint’s face. Katrina was completely dazed. Trying to contain her excitement hours before the event, Katrina said, “Within hours in the morning, Shane and Falguni Peacock took my measurements and stitched the dress for me. It’s got an amazing feel, flow and look. Almost surreal. I feel different wearing it.”
Eight designers, Gavin Miguel, Shane and Falguni Peacock, Rocky S and Rohit Gandhi among them, designed the clothes. The show was styled by Aki Narula. Katrina's gown was by Falguni and Shane Peacock. Each gown had one painting. There were about 9-10 gowns including Katrina's. The transfer of the painting onto the fabric and the stitching was all done in three days.
Aamir Khan also donned a ‘Being Human’ T-shirt with the Sallu-painted face of Christ printed on it. Salman Khan also walked the ramp. Preity Zinta, who was seated in the front row cheered on loudly as Sallu stepped on the catwalk. “I was so happy that all this shouting and cheering just happened. The show was all about being human and being together,” Preity was quoted as saying.
Seen in the first row were Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan, choreographer Farah Khan, Amisha Patel, Seema Khan, Manish Malhotra, Amrita Arora, Twinkle Khanna and Salman's mothers Salma and Helen. Sushmita Sen was also seen, though not in the first row. Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao was spotted before the show started but was not seen in the front row with the stars and star wives.
The actors said they felt good to be associated with a noble cause. "At the end of the day, it is a show which is in support of 'Being Human' which is a charitable foundation and I think it's a wonderful thing that people who are important in society and who have a name in society, use that name to contribute to a good cause and I think its wonderful that everybody really came out tonight to support the cause," said Katrina.
Aamir Khan also had a good time on the ramp with kids. "It was nice. I was feeling a bit shy, but I enjoyed because of the kids. I was extremely nervous because I have never done it before. I am not used to doing all this. This is not my world. But I did it just for my friend Salman and to support the cause," said Aamir.
"When I was rehearsing, the show area was empty still I was nervous. I thought that when I'm nervous now, what would happen when I will walk the ramp in front of the audiences. And I thought I should go back home," he added. Before starting the walk, the actor stood on the ramp for a second, looked around, smiled at everyone, took a deep breath and very shyly started walking maintaining eye contact with the audience and acknowledging their cheers. Despite his nervousness, he charmed everyone with his boyish looks and cute smile.
Other than Aamir, Ajay Devgn too made his ramp debut and he was also very scared before walking down the ramp. Actress Amisha Patel, who was there to support the cause, said that the nervousness of these actors was very evident, as they had never walked the ramp before. But it was good to see them all come together for a good cause. Another shy actor and Salman's good friend Sunny Deol too was supposed to make his ramp debut. "He was here but he is very shy. He didn't know that he had to walk the ramp. As soon as I told him, he hid somewhere," said Salman jokingly.
The magical moment came when three brothers Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan walked hand-in-hand on the ramp; stepmother Helen kissed their real mom Salma Khan on her forehead to cherish the moment of togetherness. ‘It was spontaneous. I didn’t know what came to my mind at that moment. But it was a very proud moment for the family and just to share that moment of togetherness, I kissed Salma on her forehead,’ Helen said.
This was the first time that the whole Khan family had made a public appearance together. With Salma and Helen sitting next to each other and their daughter-in-law Malaika Arora Khan and daughter Arpita cheering for all of them in the audience, the family bonding was at its peak. ‘Today we had everyone here except for my father, who I am sure is sitting somewhere up above and watching us and it is him who has guided me to take this path and come up with this fashion show,’ said Salman Khan. ‘It is an incredible and memorable moment for me,’ he added.
Things got a little uncomfortable at the press conference in an otherwise perfect event; Salman lost his cool when asked about Shah Rukh Khan's absence at the star-studded event. "Kindly give Shah Rukh the respect he deserves. Kindly give me the respect I deserve. And, most importantly, kindly give this charity event the respect it deserves. Please do not belittle it by asking me questions that have nothing to do with it," he replied. "You ask about my marriage plans, my friendships, my personal life... it makes you happy, but it upsets me," he continued in the hushed silence that followed.
