New Delhi: Actress Nisha Kothari, who was last seen in a small role in Bin Bulaye Baraati earlier this year, is set to walk the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) ramp here Wednesday.
She says with this appearance, she hopes to feature on the silver screen in a big way. The actress will flaunt designer Sulakshna Monga's creation on the runway.
"I have been away from silver screen for a while and I did miss that phase of being in the limelight," Nisha told IANS. "But I have been busy utilising my time in reading few scripts. People will soon see me in a few Bollywood projects."
After making her Bollywood debut in the 2005 film Sarkar, she featured in James. She went onto appear in Emraan Hashmi-starrer The Killer, after which she did small roles in less popular films.
She hopes to begin a fresh innings post the fashion show.
"Sulakshana is a dear friend of mine and I completely admire her designs, so I thought why not make my official start towards Bollywood through this fashion show. I am also excited as this will be my first ramp walk ever," she said.
Monga, who will present a collection inspired by underwater elements, has given the 27-year-old a blue-coloured, flowing gown with drapes and cuts, which will accentuate Nisha's hourglass figure.
"People have seen Nisha in a very glamourous and sexy avatar. So I have tried to give her an image makeover by giving her this gown which will flaunt her feminity and charm," said Monga.
The collection will vary from gowns, jumpsuits, short dresses and tunics in a mix of metallic fabrics, new textures, fine tailoring technique and rich embellishments.
