'Walking the ramp is easier than boxing'

Boxing champion Vijender Singh, who is ready to make his Bollywood debut and walked the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) summer-resort 2014, finds it easier to model than box in a ring. He was the showstopper for designer Archana Kochhar at the recently-concluded fashion gala.

“I think walking the ramp is easier than boxing,” Vijender said. “In boxing, there is a fight involved but here, you just have to go alone and walk. It’s fun,” added the multi-faceted star, who will be seen in Fugly, set to release in June. The movie is being produced by Akshay Kumar and Ashwini Yardi’s Grazing Goat Pictures. Archana’s collection was inspired by the romantic city of Paris. For her young and vibrant collection, she brought the entire cast of Fugly on board. Talking about the collection, the designer said, “I think Paris and romance go hand in hand. It is a city that is bursting with sparks, energy, love and fashion. This collection was inspired by the iconic Eiffel Tower.” 

On being asked about her association with the team of Fugly, she said, “I am very happy to have the entire cast of Fugly here with me. This collection is very young and I think the cast is young. It has high-spirited debutants who have extraordinary talent,” she added.

Besides Vijender, Fugly also features Jimmy Shergill, Anil Kapoor’s nephew Mohit Marwah and newcomer Kiara Advani.
