The names from Kollywood will include glamour queen Namitha and the cute Genelia. They will be joined from Bollywood by Koena Mithra (Honey Honey – Ayan ) and Neil ‘Johnny Gaddar’ Nithin Mukesh. Namitha walked the ramp on the opening day of the week for Chennai based designer Sidney Sladen, Neil too will be walking the ramp for him. Genelia will walk the ramp for Ishitha Puri while Koena will be doing so for Pria Kataaria.
Namitha is currently busy with her Telugu venture Simha with Balakrishna and Nayantara. She is also working in her first Malayalam film Black Stallion, which will be a trilingual in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
Sidney Sladen is one of Chennai's topnotch designers and a close friend of Trisha and Ramya Krishnan. Earlier also, the designer has roped in Namitha to launch his second outlet 'Sidney Sladen' at the Le Meridien.
The fashion-conscious actress seems to be a regular client of Sidney. So now we know from where those low necks, sleeveless and high hemlines came from.
