Actor Saqib Saleem, who turned showstopper for designer Pawan Sachdeva, rocked the Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week (LMIFW) in New Delhi on Saturday with an impromptu dance on the runway while the iconic number We Will Rock You by Queen was playing in the background.
Wearing a white shirt and trousers, paired with a powder blue jacket, Saleem also touched his father’s feet and kissed his hand and then took the audience by surprise by doing an impromptu jig on the catwalk.
“I don’t know [what made me do that]... I just felt like dancing. I have been a model before, we couldn’t do all this then. That time we had to only walk straight and come back. Since I’m an actor now, so I took a little liberty,” Saleem said in a post-show conference.
He said the dance move was to impress his father who was present there at the event.
“He is the perfect face for my collection,” said Sachdeva when asked about the young actor.
The designer said the collection, which saw a wide range of pants, shirts, and jackets, was “inspired by peace and harmony”.
