‘I put an effort to look presentable’
Ranbir Kapoor, who looked dapper as a showstopper for designer Kunal Rawal at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2016, says he always puts in an effort to look presentable wherever he goes. Asked about how much pressure does he, as a celebrity, feel to look good all the time, Ranbir said: “Of course, you know there is lot of criticism, but thankfully I don’t really read any of that. So I can really wear whatever I want. I try to be presentable wherever I am going... That’s the effort I put in.”
Ranbir, who was rumoured to be in a relationship with actor Katrina Kaif, split with the Ek Tha Tiger actor recently. Do such bad times affect him?
“I don’t know. No comments,” said the actor, who is gearing up for the release of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil on October 28.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil also stars Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan. He will also be seen sharing screen space with Katrina in Jagga Jasoos, directed by Anurag Basu.
Ranbir Kapoor considers megastar Amitabh Bachchan as his style icon.
“Amitabh Bachchan has been my style icon since my childhood.
“ Even now he is the best and you can’t steal away the limelight from him,” Kapoor said.
The Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani, who walked the ramp for designer Kunal Rawal at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive 2016, says his grandmother Krishna Raj Kapoor is the “most stylish woman” around for him.
When it comes to personal style, Kapoor says he does not identify with the tag of fashion icon.
“I am someone, who is always seen in a pair of jeans, t-shirt, cap and sneakers, I don’t understand why someone will follow my style. I don’t read fashion blogs and all this is not important to me,” he said.
Rawal’s collection ‘Role Play’ was a mix of bolds and neutrals which added to the festive tonality of the garments.
Shades of wine, champagne, ivory and blue dominated the ramp along with charcoals and olives.
Bandi, jackets, modern versions of sherwanis, short pathani kurtas were a part of the collection.
