Not fash­ion con­scious at all: Gau­rav

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - YASHIKA MATHUR

Wear­ing branded clothes and stylish ac­ces­sories comes nat­u­rally to ac­tors, but

Gau­rav Gera (above) leads life dif­fer­ently. “I am not fash­ion con­scious at all. I stud­ied to be a fash­ion de­signer from an in­sti­tute, so I think that killed the ex­cite­ment of wear­ing brands,” says Gau­rav, who has done tele­vi­sion shows such as Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi, Tota Weds Maina and Mrs Pammi Pyare­lal. “I still don’t like shop­ping. I can go to func­tions wear­ing my old clothes and look­ing re­ally sim­ple. The only thing is that I ob­serve how oth­ers dress when I go to events, which even­tu­ally helps me in dress­ing up my char­ac­ters on screen,” he adds.

Gera plays Chutki, a woman, has be­come a favourite among his fans. Asked if he feels any kind of com­pe­ti­tion from fel­low ac­tor Su­nil Grover’s fe­male char­ac­ter Gut­thi, he says, “Su­nil is a friend. We have even worked to­gether in the past, so I don’t think there is any feel­ing of com­pe­ti­tion be­tween us. And any­way, Chutki is more beau­ti­ful!.”

The 41-year-old ac­tor says he likes don­ning var­i­ous looks. “When most of the ac­tors want to be known for their face, I want to be known for my char­ac­ter,” he says.
