It’s been years since we saw the husband-wife duo of Manju & Bobby Grover (M & BG) showcase their collection at any of the fashion weeks. If I remember right, I saw them last showing a collection almost two and half years back.
Well, post separation Manju Grover ( Manju and Bobby have separated now.) has taken to Pranic Healing and it seems she’s done with designing. A friend told me that Manju is really good with Pranic Healing.
The separated hubby, Bobby Grover is still active with the ‘Politics of Fashion.’ Being a part of the Board at FDCI, Bobby Grover is the mouth-piece of disgruntled designers. At the last WIFW, a new designer – Sonia Jetley ran straight to Bobby when her ‘Carry-Bag’ (An installation was created with carry-bags of different designers.) fell-off, crying ‘sabotage‘ and Bobby did fight her battle. But it was too trivial an issue for any scribe to give the incident any importance.
By the way, is Booby Grover eligible to be on the FDCI Board without being a designers? It’s definitely an issue to ponder over!
Manish Malhotra was cribbing that Rohit Bal spoilt his show at The Collective launch in Delhi. Malhotra was complaining about the skit that Karan Johar hosted at the launch and Gudda and Pratap were part of the skit. Don’t know what Gudda did to spoil his show but Manish Malhotra is quiet a spoilsport. By the way, I think the skit hosted by K Jo was rather stupid.
At the Chivas Tour last year, Manish Malhotra and Rohit Bal were paired together for a show in Mumbai. Manish wanted the second half, which was slotted for Gudda but when organisers didn’t budge, he pleaded that when Gudda’s show ends, he should be called again on the ramp for the bow. What stupid demands, huh. Manish concentrate on your designs. If they are good you need not re-appear on the ramp twice or blame it on somebody for a lack-lustre show.
