"A Bollywood actor need not be politically correct"
Sharman Joshi is fun; perhaps he believes a Bollywood actor need not be politically correct...always. Our correspondent gets into a rapid fire on fashion with the actor before he showstops a Chivas Studio fashion show in Kolkata
What's style for you? Style for me is being myself; being at peace with yourself; being comfortable in what you wear.
And fashion? Pretty much in the same lines.
One word that describes your ramp walk at Chivas Studio? Rocking
What's your daily wear? I don't follow any trends in that sense. Jeans, a T-shirt is generally what I wear. That's my favourite outfit. But then, I respect the occasion and the people associated with it and dress accordingly. If it's a formal occasion, I don't try to
'Women look best in two-piece bikini'
be outlandish and then make a style statement...I don't like to do that. If it's someone's wedding reception, I would like to dress up appropriately. I think that's very stylish to dress up outlandish at a wedding reception. Going to a wedding in a pair of toned jeans and 'ganji' is not style.
Do you like accessories? I am not an accessory chap. Watches, chains...I think that's not my scene.
What are the 5 must-haves in your wardrobe? Hanger, a drawer, jeans, T-shirts, underwears
What does a man look best in? I can't look at a man like that! (Smiles) You have to tell me what do you think a man looks best in...
Tell us about women then... Women (sighs)!...in a two-piece bikini.
Who are your favourite designers? I wear clothes of Arjun Bhasin; so he is one of my favourites among Indian designers. I like Armani and DKNY among foreign ones.
What was the first fashionable thing that you bought with your first pay cheque? I don't remember that.
What is your most expensive buy so far? Has to a suit from Armani...that's the most expensive thing I have bought till date.
Where do you generally shop at? Generally I shop whenever I am travelling abroad, with a film, or on a holiday. That's the time I generally go out shopping.
Are you brand conscious? Yeah! I like to dress up in brands; not for any stupid reason, but because I see certain standards and quality maintained in branded products.
Who is the best dressed man in Bollywood? I don't care. I don't look at them like that.
And what about the best-dressed woman in Bollywood? Would be (pauses)...Katrina Kaif.
What does your wife (Prerna) look best dressed in? Everything...I want to score points on this one, yaar. I can't say one particular thing...everything she wears, she looks fabulous.
