Nothing can best describe the candidness of pictures. We bring you behind-the-scenes images of a recent bridal fashion show. Photographs: Rajesh Karkera

Military-like discipline on the ramp versus the carefree abandon backstage, if ever a choice is given to photographers to choose between the two there is little doubt about what they will pick.

When invited to cover a behind-the-scenes photoshoot of ramp models, TV actors and Bollywood starlets, we happily accepted. Here's what we came away with...

The carefree abandon, the candidness, the camaraderie, the chatter, the chaos was all at display as one entered the green room. The models were getting ready to showcase the bridal finery designed by Neeta Lulla as part of J W Marriott's Shehnaai 2013 campaign.

Talk about being candid... Aren't these Bollywood bombshells lost in their own world? Away from the whirring sound of hair dryers and curlers Bhagyashree and Sheeba manage to grab a corner of their own and do what else but click pictures with their cellphones.

No sooner did Sheeba capture Bhagyashree using the latter's cellphone, it was Bhagyashree's turn to return the favour and she happily obliged.

With cellphones in our hands who needs photographers with their complex contraptions they call a digital single lens reflex camera?

But then without the photographer would this picture have been possible?

If at all she is worked up with the ongoings inside the green room, actor Anita Hasanandani is not showing. She is all smiles as she catches up on some chatter with a friend, letting her hairdresser do her bit.

Isn't gossiping the best stress buster?
