Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Mahesh Babu, John Legend....

You name any celebrity and chances are high she's collaborated with them on a project.

Niharika NM, the digital comedienne, who rocketed to fame during the pandemic, has been to Cannes, even appeared on the finale of Koffee with Karan Season 7 and garnered a steady Instagram base of 3.2 million in just half a decade.

The Bengaluru-born management graduate turned YouTuber recently made a splash on the LFW runway in aamchi Mumbai, a place she has just shifted to from LA.

Can you guess who she walked for?

Over it she wore a jacket in the same shade but with a leopard-printed zipper belt that was the focal point of the outfit.

They reminded us of a golden, forgotten Karz-Disco Dancer-Namak Halal era in Bollywood when pompous, flashy fashion was in vogue and stars gyrated through dance numbers shimmering in rainbow hues to tunes like Jawani Janeman and Raat Baaki.
