Ey Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo...

The world of fashion and catwalks always has something hilarious to offer. We have seen that even razor blade models like Naomi Campbell also had her share of abashing mis-steps on the ramp. It's a part of the game. A couple of days back at the L.A. Fashion Week, model Sarah Welch also had once such moment while walking on the paseo for the the fashion line Shadang.

Sarah Welch, a former contestant on the reality show, 'The Bachelor' seemed to be in a hurry and the result is 'Thuuuuuuud', a sooper cool plunge into a vent. The lady didn't notice a goggling hole, which was created by a martial arts performer's aerobatics. Chee Chaaa Ho Ha Ho Ha.....
"As a runway model, you have to keep your head up, you know," Welch, told KABC-TV. "So I didn't look down for a hole, particularly."
Does that sound really convincing ? Take a simple instance, when we drive on Indian roads after a heavy down pour, we encounter numerous puddles and potholes. What is the general behavior expected from a responsible driver, in 7/10 cases s/he would apply the brakes, decelerate, and make sure that s/he crosses the mud sea safely. In the rest 3 cases, we face the same quandary as did Welch, isn't it ?.

Now if you see the video, there is some hooting from the crowd but not to the intensity or the decibel levels in Beedi Jalaile Jigar Se Piya from Omkara. The lady, Welch, knows that the mistake has already been done and so she needs to mend the scene and that's when a fellow male model helps her to get out of the waist-deep hole. She recovers fast and realizes the mood of the situation and leaves the stage with an optimistic signal, 'Hey All is fine' without any tempestuous expressions on her face.

This would have been a mortifying experience for Welch but she definitely has a vivid sense of humor as her reply says it.
"It is just a really funny mishap. And I hope they're enjoying watching it just as much as I am," she said.
Now if you followed the title of the post, yes yes I get it that how can I attribute the word 'Bhai' to a lady, but then this song has been humming in my ears for long and so the title. This song was sung by the legendary singer, Manna Dey who won his Filmfare Award in 1971 for this musical number, from Raj Kapoor's Mera Naam Joker.

Keep reading and remain connected.
