Just an eve before Janmastami, ever-green dream girl Hema Malini performed a Raas-Leela on the Finale Day of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 for ace designer Neeta Lulla’s show.

Malini was dressed up as Radha and performed a short Kathak dance, accompanied by Raul D’Souza in the avatar of Shree Krishna.

The actress dazzled the ramp in a dark purple Neeta Lulla lehenga choli and light purple net dupatta embroidered with gold.

“Hema happens to be friend and I have dressed her in films for over a decade but it just struck me in this moment to include this dance sequence, I never planned it beforehand. The love of Radha and Krishna is eternal and Radha is my inspiration this season as I have portrayed femininity and grace through my collection,” revealed Neeta Lulla to DZaree.

The fashion sequence concluded with handsome Gaurav Arora as Krishna, surrounded by Gopis, just the likes of Raas-Leela performance that India will see on Janmastami’s eve.The Tinsel town luminaries who gave attendance for front rows were Juhi Chawla, Shruti Hassan, Ameesha Patel, Celina Jaitley, Prabhu Deva and the likes.
