Designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla's OTT-theme party to launch their fashion film Mera Noor Hai Mashhoor in Mumbai, like all their events, was rather mast and had celebs showing up on-theme in standout zaberdast costumes that bewildered the imagination.
Guess who stole the spotlight? Newbie on the fashion block, Radhika Merchant, looked like a million bucks in a heavenly shade of pink. A rose by any name was she!
