Arjun Khanna sat down at the press conference, with three male models
at his side, and broke into a wide smile.
"That was fun, wasn't it?" he asked the one to his left, who vigourously nodded in agreement.
Addressing the media, the humble Arjun praised the audience, his models and all of the event's organisers before mentioning himself.

"It's the same for every artist. Take a painter, for instance. He must have a brush, his paints, his canvas, etc. Fashion design is the same. Without my models, the audience and the materials, none of this would be possible."
Asked to gauge the show's success, "Tonight was a very special night. I was fortunate to receive a standing ovation, which is always an honour. But honestly, the praise should really go to these guys," he said, pointing to the models.
