  • “she did good but she needs to stepup her game !” – Farhan Akhtar

9. Monisha Retna

  • “While the walk was great as the last episode. The styling was off, the color combination was not working especially the bag, work on your styling and you will be there.” – Ritika Pal

10. Aarohi Shrivastava

  • “Walk good, but be cautious of the hand on the hip moment, it is not helping your walk.” – Ritika Pal

  • “She tried, her ensemble was really good but she pull it off? NO!! those shoes were too high, the way she held the bag is also a big X. Wear something that is comfortable yet has a wow factor to it. This one had the wow factor but she didn’t work it. So unfortunate.” – Adney Goncalves
  • “Your fashion sense and styling couldn’t be ignored easily. You looked beautiful in your own chosen outfit , and a handbag added an extra beauty . But you looked a bit uncomfortable in your walk .” – Abu Pame
  • “I loved Ekta’s styling, she looked Urban Diva. I suggest Ekta, to be little active and make shoot video in more good quality . ” – Mohit Gaikwad

12. Mahima Kodwani

  • “Good walk, but put some more pace and energy in your walk.” – Ritika Pal
  • “I didn’t get the look honestly. I guess if she had gone a little overt, it could have helped. She needs to take little more risks.n Her walk didn’t help her style either.” – Adney Goncalves
