Zayed Khan is known stylish mannerisms. The actor has now been signed up as the brand ambassador for Roxton Clothing, one of the leading names in the field of textiles, garments. We caught up with Zayed Khan for an exclusive tête-à-tête as he unveils the ad campaign, exclusively to Bollywood Hungama. Over to you Zayed…
“The ad is basically aimed at an autumn winter collection, and it’s focused on jackets and jeans. The ‘look’ of the campaign is totally inspired to make it look uber cool. We have tried to make it look fashionable without over dressing and killing the look. ‘Being minimalistic’ is the key word here. Even the cuts that the jeans and the T shirts are offering are very slim and sleek fitting, very long and tapered.”
“The basic look and the feel of the campaign is in direct tune with our tagline, which is ‘Stop expecting start believing…I am fashion’. With this campaign, we want to tell the world that fashion like this is very much possible, without burning a hole in the pocket. The range that we are offering is very affordable that will suit the budget of every common man. The basic theme and the intention of the ad campaign is to make the consumer feel fashionable and also fashionably conscious without making them a fashion victim!”
“I think that there are lots of people who are actually ‘victimized’ by fashion. The whole idea of the campaign is that be real and also conscious about your personality as fashion can not only accentuate your personality, but also accentuate who you are.
On a parting note, from here, I am heading straight to London for the shoot of Priyadarshan’s flick Tez. This is one film about which I am all charged up.”
Meena Iyer (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 03, 2010)
If you join the dots from S Shankar’s first film Gentleman (1993) to his latest Robot (2010) you’ll notice a common thread. For one, he has the finger on the pulse of the mainstream cinegoer. Plus, he knows how to embellish his work with gloss and grandeur at a scale still unimaginable by most filmmakers.
Real Indian palaces, heritage sights, Machu-Pichu, seven wonders of the world…he’s exploited them all long before Bollywood found their address.
But to grant the devil his due - his movies are not just special-effects ridden; there is a definite plot with a message. Also, the budgets get more phenomenal each time.
His first blockbuster Gentleman (1993) (with its iconic Chik paku raile number that introduced the world to Prabhu Deva’s dancing skills) brought a new style of filmmaking but his 90s protagonist is just a different avatar of Bollywood 70s phenomenon - Salim-Javed’s ‘angry young man’.
Quite like Amitabh Bachchan, Shankar’s hero has invariably been taking on the system, film after film. But where he leaves his contemporaries way behind is his technical wizardry. A fact just reiterated by his latest Robot (Endhiran, Tamil).
Comparisons to West
Two days after the release of the Rs 150 crore film, Kollywood’s Shankar is drawing comparisons to none other than James Cameron.
Both are August born; both spare no expense when it comes to their budgets and cinematic vision. And quite like Avatar, the highest worldwide grosser, Robot too has opened to a thunderous start.
The filmmaker himself remains remarkably modest about being “India’s Cameron quotient.” “Stop pulling my leg,’’ he says. “I don’t need any more spotlight on me than that is already there,” he laughs.
But with an enviable track record of seven of the biggest hits in Tamil cinema, Shankar is on the verge of rewriting history with his eight one. Trade sources confirm that Endhiran, has broken the record of the highest box office collections for a Tamil film - the film, they say, will cross the Rs 250 crore mark.
Decoding the director
So what’s Shankar all about? Born in a fairly affluent family in Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu, he worked as a quality control supervisor till the movie bug bit him. On a telephone call he still introduces himself as, “Hi I’m Shankar, the director,’’ and when you incredulously ask him why he says that, he replies, “my films and I are twins, joined at the hip.’’
But while his on-screen heroes are the robust Robinhood-rascala amalgamation, Shankar himself is the anti-thesis. He’s more like a quiet mouse on set, rather than like a megalomaniac wielding the megaphone. And he lets his ADs have a field day liaising with Bollywood beauties and the crew.
But quiet demeanor apart, with his baseball cap and huge sun-shades, Shankar is the boss. He has worked with the legends of Tamil cinema - Kamal Haasan (Indian) and Rajnikanth (Sivaji-The Boss, Endhiran-Robot) but is neither in awe of his subject nor does he doesn’t brook any interference.
As he says, “Rajnikanth is the ultimate for any film-maker. His demi-God status aside, he’s the most obedient actor I’ve worked with. He doesn’t leave the set once he reports for work…and he still maintains a child-like curiosity about everything related to a film.’’
What makes him work
One of his assistant directors says the secret of his success lies in his engineering background - he goes about fixing each nut and bolt step by step while filmmaking. Robot was originally planned five years ago with Priety Zinta and Kamal Hasan.
The monies didn’t drop at that point. It was then revived with Shah Rukh Khan. Story goes when Shankar went to Orange County (with his wife, son, daughters Aditi and Aishwarya and team of writers) to give SRK a detailed narration, he had every colour scheme, every frame and other minute details worked out. SRK was visibly impressed but the deal fell through and the Rajni came on board.
He is also a tough cookie to please. A stickler for punctuality, years ago, when Manisha Koirala (Indian, Mudalvan) walked in just a few minutes late on a couple of occasions, he had turned shades of purple. And one has seen him lapse into complete silence after he and the Nepali actress had a slight altercation about a scene.
Of course all this doesn’t compromise his work relations. The next morning, he sorted the matter with Manisha and shooting progressed at a brisk pace.
A simple man
In personal life he’s a plain-dresser. Though he arrives in a high-end automobile (he earlier drove a Merc but after his association with SRK, switched to a BMW) he has no shenanigans attached to his name. He’s the kind of guy who has no hesitation to eat food at roadside joints, goes about his work-home-work routine and shuns parties save for the occasional awards function.
But his budgets are the opposite. Ask him about why his budgets always get more prominence than his reviews, and he says, “I don’t know the intention of the press when it highlights the budgets of movies. In my movies the money has always been well-spent. In Robot, the animatronics used is of the same calibre of The Jurassic Park, Terminator and Avatar. And since it was also done at the Stan Winston Studios in the US, the SFX cost huge money. I only put my money where my mouth is. Robot needed high-end technical effects. If Indian cinema had a wider release, then I would have spent at least half of what Avatar did on SFX. However, I’ve always believed in bringing in something new via technology in every film of mine. And it is because of the novelty element that my films have a repeat value.”
“I think it’s wrong to talk about my movie budgets constantly. There is an equal amount of blood and sweat invested in the effort. The film took two years to make and we had a huge foreign crew involved. Every member of my unit and the foreign crew has worked so hard on this film that the money pales in comparison to the effort put in.’’
The journey ahead
Fair enough, but one wonders whether it is personal angst that is responsible for the Robinhood characters he writes. Says Shankar, “I’m a common man. And I’m fully aware of what is happening around me. As a journalist you have a pen that you use to highlight injustice. As a director, I have another medium to do exactly the same.’’
But the films he patronises are vastly different from the ones he makes. A self-confessed Mani Ratnam admirer, the other three films that have left an indelible mark on him are Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Lagaan, Farhan Akhtar’s Dil Chahta Hai and Raj Kumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots. “When I’m in between scripts the only things I make time for are watching movies,” he says.
And though his movies leave gadget freaks gasping, he’s technologically challenged in real life. “All the technology is reserved for my films. I don’t even know what hidden features my cell-phone has,’’ he laughs.
As he gets into his vehicle to visit the local Chennai theatres for reactions, he adds, “People want to know what I’m making next. I usually have some idea stashed away in my head for my next film even before the earlier one has wrapped.
In 17 years I have directed 10 films. I guess I have been prolific. But, this time around I want to wait for the hangover of Robot to subside. What I really need at this point is to splash some water on my face, clear my head and go for a long drive and feel the breeze blow.’’

In a saucy, hatke interview, Salman Khan unleashes his hilarious, wicked side
I keep an early alarm to wake up on time so that I can interview Chulbul Pandey aka Salman Khan. Zipping past the mad traffic to make it on time, I enter Mehboob Studio. Luckily the star hasn’t arrived. I wait for a few minutes and Sallu arrives with his entourage. The actor has his table-chair set outside his vanity van, where we sit under the hot sun discussing his new avatar as host on Bigg Boss 4. Excerpts from a fun rendezvous:
• If given an opportunity, would you go inside the Bigg Boss house and be locked up with the contestants with no connection with the outside world?
As long as there are no cameras inside, yes, I will.
• For how long can you remain disconnected from the outside world?
Let me see now.
• But will you experiment and go inside?
I have been in more difficult situations than the contestants of Bigg Boss can ever be in! And I have handled them pretty well I guess…So I don’t think it will be that much of a problem. It will be a party place for me. I like people, good people, great people.
• Who would be the first person you would make a call to apart from your parents after getting out?
(Thinks) Apart form my parents, I would call Ashvini (programming head of the channel) and ask her what to do next.
• The contestants discuss everything under the sun about their personal lives. Do you find it right?
That’s good na. It’s entertaining.
• Would you discuss your personal relationships in the house, seen and heard by everyone?
You guys discuss my personal life without even knowing it. That is what I find very amusing. So I don’t even react to it and nobody else also reacts to it. And now the fans have also stopped reacting to it. Now I am on Twitter ya, so whenever something comes up, they immediately tweet.
• Tell me five actors you would like to see in the Bigg Boss house together?
I would like Sanju to be here (Sanjay Dutt), Govinda, myself, Jackie (Jackie Shroff), Akki (Akshay Kumar). We all will have a blast.
• Five actresses?
Five names you choose. All are good.
• Five directors?
All the directors should remain outside and keep directing
• If you were locked in the house with Vivek Oberoi, John Abraham, Shah Rukh Khan, who would you eliminate?
Do I have to answer this question?
I have to? What if I don’t, then?
• You just have to say one person’s name!
I would eliminate myself.
• And if you are not in the house with them, who would you choose to eliminate?
(Loudly) If I am not in the house, I am not the Bigg Boss, then I don’t have the right to eliminate anybody. They can be in as longgg as they want.
• If you had Sangeeta Bijlani, Somy Ali and Aishwarya Rai in the house, who would you eliminate?
I would keep them all.
• You wouldn’t eliminate anyone?
(Long pause) I really really like Sangeeta and Somy. They are my friends.
• Which actresses, if inside, will have cat fights according to you?
I think the actresses nowadays are pretty chilled out. Because I have worked with most of them. They all get along. The way the heroes get along, the actresses get along.
• You mean actresses only get along on screen?
No, off screen also. Nobody is into each other’s work. They are all in their spaces.
• Every contestant is given a household duty to do? What duty would you take up?
I would take the duty of cooking.
• If given a chance, what would you cook?
Nothing! I’ll make such bad food for everybody that they will run away from my food.
• What is the hatke lingo you plan to use on this show?
I would use a lot of beep wali gaalis.
• Among the Hollywood celebrities, which star would you like to see as an inmate inside and why?
I have no idea. I don’t know anybody in Hollywood. I know my friends from here. This industry is Hollywood for me.
• Aren’t you disturbed that controversy never seems to leave you?
Doesn’t that disturb you guys?
• No, it doesn’t disturb us.
No? Then why should it disturb me?
• Why do people see you in a film and want to copy your style?
You are seeing what I am wearing (points out to his clothes). It is very easily affordable. Jeans, t-shirt, ek joota hai and my bracelet, kabse pehen raha hoon.
• Do you have any regrets from the past?
No, not at all.
Film producer Gaurang Doshi, playing a hilarious cat and mouse game with cops for 13 days, emerges from self-imposed isolation to face dowry charges
The rattling of bolts on Gaurang Doshi’s front door was like music to the ears of the policemen stationed outside, 24×7 for the last 13 days.
At noon on Tuedsay, the film producer under self-inflicted house arrest emerged from his house dressed in jeans, t-shirt and sandals, casually flicking his car keys as if nothing had happened. He went to the main gate, told the watchman “Mercedes ka chabi lao”, changed his mind and walked outside. He stood at the side of the road for a while, squinting his eyes like a man who’d seen sunlight after a long time, hailed a cab, and sped away.
Doshi, once in the news for making the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Aankhen, was heading to Girgaum court, which had granted a stay against a warrant for his arrest for repeatedly failing to appear for a dowry case filed by his wife Madhuri.
Since September 1, soon after the non-bailable arrest order had been passed, Doshi had been holed up in his home with his domestic help and his mother, pretending to be out of town while police officers sat on the stairs outside waiting to arrest him. They threatened to cut off the electricity and water supply to the house, but he didn’t yield.
Inside the two-bedroom apartment, in Vikas Apartments on Pedder Road, the last 13 days were strangely uneventful.
The inmates - Doshi, two domestic employees, and his mother - spent their time watching TV serials, movies, and just lounging as if on vacation.
“I saw about 25 films, and lots of saas-bahu serials. I also slept a lot. My mother was there, so I had company,” Doshi told Mumbai Mirror. “I was afraid of coming out because of the cops outside. I was scared that they would beat me up. I was waiting for my lawyer to help me.” When we had spoken to Doshi last week, he had said he was in Delhi working on a big project.
For supplies, one of the domestic help would occasionally sneak out the back entrance while the cops were sitting out front. For garbage disposal, the waste was simply chucked out of the window.
In contrast to the calm inside, there was constant frenetic activity outside the house.
The cops sitting at the doorstep would periodically lose their cool and command Doshi to relent.
Other residents, fed up of having policemen camped on the stairway, would often join the chorus. And the society sweeper, caught unawares by new pieces of garbage being flung from the third-floor window, would repeatedly crib.
On Tuesday, Doshi was given a dressing down at the Girgaum court after turning up almost two hours late because he overslept. “He was cautioned by the judge, who made it clear that he has to appear in all the hearings or he will be sent to jail,” his lawyer Rishi Bhuta said. According to a family friend, he was relaxed after coming back from the court, and went off to sleep again.
In 2005, more than 10 years after they got married, Doshi’s wife had filed a complaint of cruelty and dowry harassment against him in the Gamdevi police station.
A trial is going on in Girgaum court but Doshi has skipped court hearings despite repeated summons. Madhuri has accused Doshi of assaulting her, and of having an affair with aspiring actress Flora Saini.
Saini, too, filed a case of harassment and battery against Doshi in 2007.
Manoj Bajpayi and his wife Neha are expecting their first child
Manoj Bajpayi and Neha are expecting their first child. The couple, who will be proud parents soon, was spotted at the Lilavati hospital yesterday. Manoj Bajpayi and Neha tied the knot in 2005. It is Manoj’s second marriage. Neha, also known as Shabana Raza, is a Bollywood actress who has worked previously in films like Kareeb and Fiza.
Our source spotted Manoj Bajpayi with his spouse at the venue. The source informs, “Manoj was dressed in a casual jeans and a shirt and Neha was glowing in steel-grey pants with an off-white top. The couple headed to the gynaecologist department on the second floor as soon as they entered the hospital premises.”
The source added, “The parents-to-be looked quite happy and had a lot of queries. The doctor instructed Neha to stop exercising, eat healthy food and take a proper rest.” The eyewitness informs that Neha’s bump was not visible, since she has only just gotten pregnant.
The actor, who is awaiting his next release Dus Tola, wishes to keep his personal life personal and neither confirmed nor denied the good news. The actor said, “Neha and I have decided not to talk about our private affairs in public. So you can go ahead with the story.” Though he didn’t deny going to Lilavati with Neha he was reluctant to state the reason, “Yes, we went there but it was for some personal reason that I won’t like to talk about.”
Congratulations, Manoj. You’ll be a great father!

You must have surely heard of the terms ‘actors’ and ‘fans’ being associated with each other. How will you react if we combine the term ‘actress’ and ‘vertebrae’? Well, before you raise your eyebrow in disbelief, let us tell you that the jeans major Lawman Pg3 has done just that. The brand has roped in hottie Kangna Ranaut, as the brand ambassador. Talking about the brand, Kangna says, “Lawman’s denim wear has an exciting new uber-cool designer look and feel which I think will be very popular amongst the youth. I am very happy and excited to be its brand ambassador.”
For the uninformed lot, ‘Vertebrae’ is the name that’s been given to the said brand’s latest collection of jeans. A combination of clinically accurate wash and stitch put together gives you the pair of jeans that has an exciting designer look and feel which shows off a vertebral column
Kangna is having a great run in Bollywood as well as her latest smash hit Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai has set the B.O. rolling. For this film, she went onto give ‘retro’, a brand new definition altogether. Talking about brands, looking at her recent spree of brand endorsements, it’s now obvious that Kangs is a hot property not just in Bollywood, but also in the world of brand endorsements.
Kangna’s upcoming films include Knock Out with Sanjay Dutt and Game with Abhishek Bachchan. News also has it that she has been offered to star in a US-based film titled Between the Night and the Moon, in which she will play a character called Zoon. And as far as her brand endorsements are concerned, needless to say, trust Bollywood Hungama to get to you the news first, as it happens!
Kangna Ranaut, who refuses to be typecast, is having fun with her multiple roles
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; August 29, 2010)
She’s arrives at a five-star hotel coffee shop dressed casually in a pair of skin-fitting blue jeans and a matching blouse. Her curly hair and her large, foreversearching-for-something-brown-eyes give her the quality of a child-woman. Kangna Ranaut is an interesting mix of innocence and equanimity.
Life is currently “very good’’ to her. Her slate is choc-o-bloc. Post the supersuccess of Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai for which she won accolades for her role as a yesteryear actress, it’s raining films and assorted roles in her backyard.
Says Kangna, “I don’t think any other actress in Bollywood has as many films as I do.’’ But, hello, she is not being immodest. In the next six months she has four films slated for the marquee. And unlike many actresses who are content to be typecast, Kangna is fortunate to have a wide array of roles to bite into. In October she’ll be in Sohail Maklai’s racy thriller Knockout with Sanjay Dutt and Irrfan Khan where she plays a journalist. Then there’s Tanu weds Manu where she plays a wannabe girl from small town Kanpur. But, of course, the high point of her career is producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Game where this 23-year-old plays an Interpol officer.
“It is by far the most difficult role I’ve attempted,’’ says Kangna. “It was challenging to prepare for this role of a British girl from London who is actually quite like a man in many ways,’’ she says. The reason why she found this role so hard to prepare for is because she had no reference point of a girl who has stayed in London and speaks with a Brit accent. Having said that, the mountain beauty drops a bomb. She confesses that she has seen precisely six-seven Hollywood films in her entire life, and around 25 odd Bollywood films.
“So it wasn’t as if I knew a lot about FBI agents or CIA officials,’’ she points out. “And officers on special duty in our Hindi cinema are very different from their foreign counterparts. Abhinay Deo, the director of Game, helped me a lot by breaking the role down for me so I could interpret it correctly.’’
Kangna says Excel Entertainment (Ritesh and Farhan) were actually toying with the idea of getting a guy for this role. “However, they felt that a guy chasing a guy thing didn’t have that much of a novelty, so they changed it and I’m fortunate that they got me to do the role instead. I had to make sure that I got the body language perfect. There is nothing romantic or sensual about this Interpol officer. Yet my director didn’t want to go overboard with the stiffness and appear like too masculine. Believe me, it was a challenge. And Game is a film that I just enjoyed preparing for. It’s a never-been-seen before character as far as Bollywood goes.’’
It doesn’t stop there. While her contemporaries are falling over each other trying to grab films, Kangna’s booked way for the next year having signed on Priyadarshan’s Hindi adaptation of the Bullet Train; Indra Kumar’s comedy Double Dhamaal; David Dhawan’s Rascals; and, a film with debutant Chiraag Paswan. “Then I have been reading scripts and considering a few more projects. But now dates are an issue because I have signed on a lot of films and all are good,’’ she shrugs. What does one say? Get ready for a Kangna Ranaut film festival. For her the game has just begun.
Karan Johar got Imran to do a sexy shoot for his forthcoming film with Sonam Kapoor
SHARIN WADER BUTANI Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; April 28, 2010)
“Karan wanted to sell me in this cool, sexy look. He wanted me to show my body,” accused Imran Khan, who worked out for two months before he could shed his shirt and pull his pants a wee bit down for this photoshoot for Dharma Productions’ I Hate Luv Stories. “It’s to show the film’s attitude,” he explained, “My butt’s showing, but I think John Abraham beats me at that.”
For the film, Imran gained a lot of weight. “I did functional training, strength training, rope climbing and played a lot of basketball. I altered my diet, too, ate only fish, steamed veggies, fruits and nuts and no rice at all. And two days before I shot this picture, I stopped the intake of salt completely. I even stopped drinking water,” said Imran who ‘quenched’ his thirst by rinsing his mouth. Working out, he hates — but Imran’s hard work has paid off. He’s never looked better. Karan Johar definitely knows how to make his actors look good.
“There was a struggle between Manish Malhotra and director Punit, who is also his nephew. While Manish wanted this allperfect look for me, Punit wanted a grungy one. So finally I ended up looking quite stylised with coloured shoe laces, which were untied, ripped jeans, half-buttoned shirts…” said Imran quite impressed with the outcome. Shooting for Karan wasn’t just all work, Imran had a blast in New Zealand with Sonam Kapoor and Punit. “Punit and I had this secret code that nobody understood. So we would communicate in that language driving everybody nuts,” said Imran who bonded big time with Sonam, too. “I have always felt that we two would look great together. Check out our onscreen chemistry.” He plays a casanova in the film who doesn’t believe in love stories. “He enjoys the game of romancing girls but at the same time, he’s not a harami. Karan told me, ‘Whatever you do, don’t make your character look sleazy. You have to be the sweet guy,’” said Imran. In real life, he claims to have been in love ever since he turned 13. “And I love love stories,” smiled the actor who is engaged to be married to sweetheart Avantika. “That will happen somewhere next year. I don’t want to get married in between two films. Shaadi karunga toh style se,” added Imran.
While rickshaw drivers in Bandra will have enough stories to tell about a certain Mr Salman Khan hopping into a rickshaw in the dead of the night, his girlfriend Katrina Kaif isn’t known for any such daring late night antics.
But on Sunday evening, Katrina was spotted getting into a rickshaw in Andheri along with her business manager.
It transpires that the actress had come to catch a movie at a suburban multiplex but when she came out after the screening, she just couldn’t figure out where her driver was.
An eyewitness reveals, “Dressed in jeans and a tee, Katrina was accompanied by her manager and bodyguards. She had come to catch Ishqiya. After the show, at around 10.30 pm, she came out and was trying to call her driver to get the car. Being a weekend there was a lot of traffic.”
The source continues, “Even after trying several times, Katrina was unable to get through to the driver. Apparently he had parked her SUV in the basement and there was a problem with the network connectivity. By this time, people recognised her and a crowd started gathering. Thinking quickly, Katrina made her way to the road and hailed a rickshaw. She got into one with her manager while her bodyguards got into another and followed her.”
A source close to Katrina confirms, “Katrina couldn’t wait for the car any longer because people were starting to mob her. But she completely loved the rickshaw ride back home to Bandra from Andheri.”
• Would you prefer to be sexy rather than the girl-next-door?
Yes, of course. But right now I am very comfortable in my space. I love the work I get and I’m not in a hurry to grow up. Aditi in Jaane Tu… was aggressive; my character in Chance pe Dance (CPD) is milder, calmer and has a sweet, feminine side. Yet both characters are girls-next-door.
But wouldn’t you like to play a sex bomb?
I don’t know whether I can, it depends on the script. It is something I haven’t thought about. I’d rather be spunky than sexy. I like being schoolgirl sexy, like the ‘naughty’ sexy.
• Given a chance to hit on your co-star, who would it be – Shahid, Harman or John?
You can’t expect me to choose. And now that CPD is releasing, it has to be Shahid. (laughs)
• Have you ever made the first move in a relationship?
No, never. I would never do that. I would probably smile, but I would never make the first move on a guy for sure.
• Has a girl ever made a pass at you?
No, never! (laughs)
• When did you start working? Your first salary?
I was 15, and I got it for my first ad. I earned around Rs 10, 000.
• And your first screen test?
It was an advertisement with Mr Bachchan. I tested for it at five in the evening and got selected at 10 the same night. And the next thing I knew, I was doing it. Yippie.
• Tell us some dance moves you like.
I like the signature move of the song Papapa (CPD), because I think it is something that everyone can do. I love what Shahid has done in Pump it up. I think he has really, really rocked. For me dancing is going mad, letting down your hair and having a blast.
• How about salsa and jive?
Oh, I would love to do salsa. I am Christian, so I have done a lot of jiving and I love the co-ordinated lifts, but you need a terrific partner to do it.
• Your last chance to admit whether you’re single or not
Ya, ya, ya! I am single
• And ready to mingle?
I find that extremely cheesy, but I am single.
• If you could date a Hollywood actor, who would it be?
My all-time favourite star is Tom Cruise, but I would choose Brad Pitt for a date.
• Do you update yourself about fashion and read about the latest trends?
I do. But for me it is more like a jeans and tee or shorts and tee. I love white shrits and denims. I love very simple normal stuff, but if I have to make an effort, definitely I would consult people and talk to them.
• Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction?
No. I am quite particular. I like everything fixed up and proper.
