Stylist re­alises life­long dream

Sunday Tribune - - HERALD -

Rocky Star, who will be styling ac­tor Ra­jinikanth, above, in his new film 2.O, says work­ing with the megastar was a dream come true as he had al­ways been in awe of Ra­jinikanth.

Writ­ten and di­rected by S Shankar, the film also stars Ak­shay Ku­mar and Amy Jack­son.

“It has been great! Ak­shay Ku­mar was one of the first ac­tors I styled at the be­gin­ning of my ca­reer, so work­ing with him is truly spe­cial.

“It has al­ways been a dream of mine to work with Ra­jinikanth. Words can­not ex­press the feel­ing. I have al­ways been in awe of him,” the de­signer told IANS.

“It is al­ways an ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to be on sets and de­sign or style for a movie. It is cre­atively stim­u­lat­ing and a lot of fun to de­sign cloth­ing for a char­ac­ter the di­rec­tor has in mind.

“To un­der­stand and ex­e­cute a di­rec­tor’s vi­sion is chal­leng­ing, but it’s a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence,” said the de­signer, who has worked on styles for celebri­ties like Lady Gaga and Paris Hil­ton.

His client list in Bol­ly­wood in­cludes stars like John Abra­ham, Bi­pasha Basu, Shilpa Shetty, Sal­man Khan, Ka­t­rina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Cho­pra.
