“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,” Saqib told IANS in a post-show conference.

He said the dance move was to impress his father who was present there at the event.
When asked about Saqib as the showstopper for the collection, Sachdeva said: “He is the perfect face for my collection.”
Sachdeva said the collection, which saw a wide range of pants, shirts, and jackets, was “inspired by peace and harmony”.
The fourth and concluding day will also witness a show titled “Rainbow” which will celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision to repeal the historic Section 377, which criminalised gay sex.
It will see almost 40 designers coming together showcasing a wide range and celebrating “love” on stage.
