This isn’t the first time Manish Malhotra has put up a show commemorating Indian cinema’s long history, but this collection did feature a mix of pieces from his recent runway shows at Delhi Couture Week and Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive. The event included cameos by actresses Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta, and filmmaker Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice, Bhaji on the Beach).
