Maximum girls today are used to walking and dancing while wearing heels for hours. But ask a guy to do that, and naturally, the result could be disastrous. Recently, Television Actor and anchor, Karan Singh Chhabra found himself in such a situation. For his currently running international talk show where Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor were to make an appearance, the actor wore 3-inch heels to promote Gender equality which is also the message of their film Ki and Ka, which in turn impressed Kareena so much that she and her team invited him to her vanity van and posed for some exclusive pictures to promote the message.
A source from the set says, "Sameer Rahim, the designer, who worked with Chhabra, got the heels customized to fit him, which made them comfortable."
The source adds, "Women's feet are shaped differently. An average pair of heels would have never fit Karan's feet. It was an interesting experience for him."
When contacted, Karan says, "Walking in heels is no easy task but I was very inspired when I saw Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh wearing heels for the cause at an award ceremony and am glad they liked it. I have developed a new-found respect for women."
Ki & Ka is an upcoming Indian romantic comedy-drama film written, directed, and produced by R. Balki. The film follows a young, married couple whose relationship challenges the gender roles placed upon women and men in Indian society.
Chhabra is a Mumbai based Software Engineer by Profession and began his journey as a model on Indian Ramps. He is known as one of the first turbaned models in the Indian fashion industry having walked the runway at Lakme Fashion Week, FDCI Amazon India Couture Week. His stint in Bollywood began with a film called Chalk n Duster with Juhi Chawla and has appeared in a lot of television soaps such as Savdhan India , Code Red, Twist Wala Love and Mtv Loveschool to name a few.
On being asked about his new show he says, " I was in Dubai hosting a stage show when I first heard about this show. It is indeed a great platform as the Show is a weekly capsule that encompasses the best of Bollywood and beyond." "Established in North America in 1987, the show has been leading the way in providing top quality entertainment to millions of viewers hungry for Bollywood entertainment. Each episode is produced in English so people from around the world can enjoy what the South Asian community has come to love" he adds.
