A friend in need is a friend indeed – VJ, actress and model Pooja Missra realized this recently when she had to do an impromptu performance at a bollywood film party. Pooja required a special outfit suitable for the performance which had to be fabricated within a few hours. So she called her friend fashion designer Umair Zafar who agreed to do the outfit for Pooja though it was at a very last minute and almost at a moment’s notice.
Says Pooja, “It was a last minute performance as the producer informed me just one day before. We hardly rehearsed for the performance but it went off perfectly without a hitch.” Speaking about her interaction with fashion designer Umair Zafar, Pooja Missra says, “Umair is a great man and a fabulous designer. He is a magician. Bollywood needs designers and stylists like Umair Zafar who can handle the pressures and pace of such last minute work. The outfit was trendy and something which I had in mind. It suited my act perfectly and I thank Umair for helping me at the last moment. The performance too went off well and I could hear people shouting Once More, Once More.”
