Sonali Bendre told IANS, "He (Goldie) said he is not coming. It's a pleasant surprise."
The proud husband Goldie who walked in to encourage his wife, said, "Yes I wasn't expected. I didn't expect to attend, but we are both happy at this moment, and I thought of surprising her and congratulate Siddhartha."
"I don't walk the ramp normally but I have been wearing Siddharth's clothes for the last 4 to 5 years for all my shows from 'Indian Idol' to 'India's Got Talent'. I find them wearable, I love his cuts and I love the way he uses colors. I like his work and the finish," Sonali told IANS.
She further added, "This year when he asked, could you be my show stopper I could not say no to him."
Sonali Bendre dazzled the ramp wearing a black knee-length dress with an attractive sleeveless jacket which had colorful embroidery on it.
"She is wearing a jacket which has 30 panels. Each panel has been completely embroidered in different shapes. It was a fun piece to make it but not an easy piece at all," designer Siddhartha said.
