Manish Malhotra bags Best Costume Design Award for ‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical’


Mumbai: India’s No.1 fashion designer Manish Malhotra has not just created a name for himself in cinema and the Hindi film industry but with his first foray into theatre, he has proven once again that he is one of the best we have.

At the recently concluded 2017 Broadway World India Awards which honours theatrical productions across the world, Manish Malhotra was awarded the Best Original Costume Design by the prestigious Broadway World India Awards for the costumes that he designed for ‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical’.

Manish Malhotra said, “This is the 35th award in my career and I am very overwhelmed and thankful to Broadway and more so as this is the first time I have designed for a musical play and to get an award for that it’s been very touching, it’s been a great experience work on this musical extravaganza and also been very challenging as 600 costumes were required and it’s been days and nights of work and I went all out to use pure fabrics and intricate embroideries make the process and the journey worthwhile and working with Feroz who is a fabulous acclaimed play director and Shapoorji made it all tremendously satisfying experience.”
