It was a fashion show which defied age, fitness and expectations. Supermodel-actor Milind Soman (51) attended the Spring-Summer 2018 edition of the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) on Wednesday evening in Delhi, where he walked the ramp for designer Nida Mahmood’s brand Deivee.
But, for once, Soman wasn’t the hunk the audience was rooting for on the ramp. Instead, the two women walking besides him - 101-year-old Mann Kaur from Chandigarh, who won a 100m race at the World Masters Games held in Auckland, New Zealand, in May this year, and Coimbatore’s V. Nanammal, a 98-year-old yoga teacher, who stole the show.
The enthusiasm of the two senior citizens on the ramp was so infectious that the audience kept rooting for them long after they’d finished their routine. Mann Kaur even sprinted across the ramp with Soman, who had to stop her just in time before she ran over the edge. After running back, she refused to go backstage and continued dancing on the side.
Nanammal is known for performing age-defying yoga poses, some of which she put on display during the show. She was given the Nari Shakti Puraskar Award by the President on International Women’s Day on March 8 this year.
