‘I DRESS UP FOR MY­SELF’

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - SCREEN -

Who’s the big­gest fash­ion­ista ac­cord­ing to you?

I like how Deepika (Padukone) and Anushka (Sharma) dress. Kan­gana (Ra­naut) can pull off ev­ery­thing. Priyanka Cho­pra Jonas wears clothes with lots of con­fi­dence. Among the he­roes, Ran­veer (Singh) is the quirki­est and has the most ec­cen­tric sense of style. Even Karan Jo­har is ex­per­i­men­tal, cre­ative and he comes up with cool looks for him­self. Then, there’s Hrithik (Roshan), too.

To­day, ev­ery­one has their own pho­tog­ra­phers click­ing their ap­pear­ances. Does so­cial me­dia put that pres­sure on ac­tors?

I don’t do it on a daily ba­sis. I do it only when I have to go for these events where I have to show­case lovely dresses and I have to jus­tify the de­signer that it’s worth giv­ing them to me. But oth­er­wise, you will see my can­did pic­tures.

On the one hand, there’s fash­ion polic­ing while on the other, there’s the anony­mous In­sta­gram ac­count Diet Sabya that picks up on copied out­fits...

Diet Sabya doesn’t pick on peo­ple and po­lice them. They just call out peo­ple for copy­ing some­one. I stay obliv­i­ous to the moral polic­ing that hap­pens oth­er­wise. I might not have the best sense of style, but I have a de­cent one. I dress up for my­self and there’s no pres­sure.

I stay obliv­i­ous to the moral polic­ing that hap­pens oth­er­wise. I might not have the best sense of style, but I have a de­cent one
