The who's who of Indian cinema made sure they were at Manish Malhotra's show on the end of the first day of the Lakme Fashion Week.

In many ways it was a show worthy of a grand finale. Manish Malhotra who pretty much made all of Bollywood fashion conscious, put up a show to celebrate one hundred years of Indian cinema. The show began with a nod to the genius of four directors who have redefined Bollywood in the last decade and a half. 

So, first up was Karan Johar, not a stranger to fashion shows, took to the ramp in a long flowy kurta and salwar.
