Misra's theme 'Bye Felicia' gave a thumbs up to drag culture. Prateik, dressed like a drag model, was the surprise showstopper.

'Inclusion is the need of the hour,' said the actor. 

The video below shows you what he did on the ramp.

 'We, as a society, need to be open-minded.

'The biases in our society stems from the orthodox mentality. It is very deep-rooted in our country but we need to wake up.

'There are too many different kinds of people in this world. Not just drags or gays, everybody is different from each other.

'We should proudly own our individuality," the showstopper added.
