Lakme collaborated with RmKV Silks' Sunita Shanker, which is an evolution of Kanjeevaram. Sushmita Sen flaunted the evoking sense of culture by being the showstopper for the designers.
Sushmita Sen, who is considered to have the fittest body in Bollywood was asked whether she had ever gone through weight gain issues, she told the media at an event, "I had this thing... because I was one of those brilliant people who put on weight and then go on national television. Did a show with Wasim Akram (Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena in 2008). I was superbly overweight and it became national news where news channels were discussing my weight. I think body-shaming is not a cool concept. I have never liked it."
Dia Mirza walked the ramp for Anita Dongre's Grass Root collection. Dia Mirza, who is UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, believes the government needs to regulate the costing of eco-friendly and natural products in order to make sustainability the way of life. In an interview with PTI, Dia stated,"Costing is a major factor which needs to be looked at to make handlooms popular. Now the more natural the thing is the more expensive it will be. I believe the government will have to play a very important role in that. There are companies producing natural stuff to get tax benefits."
The actress further added, "I believe people shouldn't be made to pay a bigger price for being eco-friendly. It discourages people from using sustainable products. Not everybody has the means of the income to afford this kind of stuff. Cost of these products has to come down to make it mainstream."
Posing with the fashion designer, Anita Dongre, Dia Mirza also mentioned, "India has an advantage in that we are a developing economy, and our businesses are still being formed. There are so many new enterprises and first time designers who are setting up. So if we bring the awareness to them and they are informed about being conscious about sustainability with the example of the existing players, things will be amazing. India is not unfamiliar with sustainability so all we need to do is bring back the old traditions. We can be an example for the world, which we can do easily because science is in our favour. All we have to learn is to be imaginative and creative."
Dia says all her choices, be it the career or personal, are governed by the good they can do to the society. Dia concluded, "I want to be a part of a conversation which entertains, engages but also give people an opportunity to learn. It will reflect in all my choices be it movies or other things I do."
