Kartik will be walking for the designer at season-fluid Lakme Fashion Week 2020 which kickstarts tonight digitally. The actor will turn showstopper for Manish Malhotra’s exquisite collection for the Mijwan Welfare Society.

“Kartik has remained very cautious amidst the pandemic by not starting any work and putting everyone’s life at risk. However, this year LFW goes digital and they will showcase their various collections online. The fashion week will kickstart with Manish Malhotra and his collection in association with Mijwan Welfare Society who works for the welfare of the girl child and women empowerment. As soon as the team got in touch with Kartik to turn showstopper for this fashion show which has more of welfare sentiments attached to it, he gave his nod,” said the source.
