Stylist realises lifelong dream
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.
