Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha walked the ramp for the Gitanjali Gems group on Day 1 to promote their upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobara which releases on August 15. Mehul Choksi, Chairman and MD of the Gitanjali Group, said that they had chosen to associate with the film which is why they had roped in the stars to act as show stoppers for their presentation. He said that Akshay and Sonakshi would create a positive appeal for the brand.

The collection was entitled Beti which was, according to the literature, a show for a cause. The Gitanjali group will have another presentation called the Wedding Extravganza which will showcase some seriously gorgeous wedding jewellery.
But back to the star couple who rocked the runway. Akshay wore a black kurta pyjama, a chain around his neck and black sun glasses, his avatar a depiction of his character from the movie.

Sonakshi too seemed to be emulating her character from the film in a flowy blue anarkali outfit with only a little floral gold embellishment on the neckline and on the cuffs of the over-sixed sheer full sleeves.

Her hair was swept to the side, draped over the side of her forehead to create a sensual vibe. Her kohled eyes were the perfect accompaniment to the elegant necklace and earring set that she was modelling.
