Kriti Sanon Delights in Sneakers Over Stilettos at Fashion Week Extravaganza


In a gleeful departure from typical high-fashion formality, Bollywood sensation Kriti Sanon graced the Lakme Fashion Week x FDCI runway with an unexpected twist: trading the traditional stilettos for a pair of comfy sneakers. The actress, embraced as Sketchers’ brand ambassador, lit up the third day of the fashion gala with what she warmly described as the most “stress-free” runway walk she’s ever experienced.

The charm of this year’s event at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai was not merely in its illustrious lineup, but also in the sporty chic that infused the atmosphere. At the heart of it all was the collection Kriti showcased, a vibrant assemblage of joggers, bomber jackets, and crop tops—an homage to retro fashion with a modern splash of streetwear.

Kriti herself is no stranger to athleisure, a style she openly adores, especially when given a stylish streetwise spin. “I am personally a lover of athleisure,” she revealed to an audience equally enchanted by her design choices and her refreshing runway demeanor. “When it comes with a twist, then it becomes streetwear and cool. It is very much my vibe.”

Her ensemble for the evening was a testament to that personal preference—a snug dress that, as Kriti candidly confessed, made her contemplate whether to “suck her stomach in.” Nonetheless, her relaxed attitude and the sneaker-clad stride were a hit, marking a departure from her pre-Bollywood days when the runway was her domain.

Prior to her film debut with ‘Heropanti’ alongside Tiger Shroff in 2014, Kriti’s career was steeped in modeling. Thus, her appearance at the event was tinged with a sense of nostalgia. “It’s always nostalgic to be here,” Kriti shared, reminiscing about her early career and the camaraderie with friends from her modeling days. The ramp, it seemed, was a reminder of her journey in the spotlight, one that continues to evolve and surprise.

As for her silver screen ventures, Kriti Sanon is set to allure audiences alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan and Tabu in the upcoming movie ‘Crew’. The film, which stirred intrigue with its recently unveiled teaser, casts the trio as audacious air hostesses. Their on-screen antics range from the comedic theft of in-flight peanut boxes to grand plans for opulence—all served with a splash of charm that promises to captivate viewers.

The teaser itself presents an enticing glimpse into the film, narrated by a voiceover by Tabu that playfully cautions viewers for the wild ride ahead, punctuated by her character’s humorous profanity. Additionally, Diljit Dosanjh and Kapil Sharma make brief appearances, further enriching the star-studded teaser.

Produced under the banners of Balaji Telefilms and Anil Kapoor Film & Communications Network, ‘Crew’ has been scheduled to delight cinema-goers on March 29, 2024. This comes after a slight postponement from its original March 22 release date. Described as a comedy set against the tribulations of the airline industry, ‘Crew’ weaves a tale of three women whose fates entangle in a comedic twist of circumstances.

The film also marks the second collaboration between producers Ektaa R Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor after their successful venture ‘Veere Di Wedding’ in 2018. With ‘Crew’ already generating buzz, Kriti’s future in cinema looks promising as she furthers her repertoire with ‘Do Patti’, which will see her star opposite Kajol.

Whether striding down the runway or lighting up the silver screen, Kriti Sanon continues to embrace the unexpected and redefine the norms, all with the grace and charisma that have become her signature. (With inputs from Agencies)
