I love women in Bikini: Sharman Joshi
Sharman Joshi is fun; perhaps he believes a Bollywood actor need not be politically correct…always. India Blooms correspondent Sreya Basu gets into a rapid fire on fashion with the actor before a he showstops a Chivas Studio fashion show in Kolkata.
What’s style for you?
Style for me is being myself; being at peace with yourself; being comfortable in what you wear.
Pretty much in the same lines.
One word that describes your rampwalk at Chivas Studio?
What’s your daily wear?
I don’t follow any trends in that sense. Jeans, a T-shirt is generally what I wear. That’s my favourite outfit. But then, I respect the occasion and the people associated with it, and dress accordingly. If it’s a formal occasion, I don’t try to be outlandish and then make a style statement…I don’t like to do that. If it’s someone’s wedding reception, I would like to dress up appropriately. I think that’s very stylish to dress up outlandish at a wedding reception. Going to a wedding in a pair of toned jeans and ‘ganji’ is not style.
Do you like accessories?
I am not an accessory chap. Watches, chains…I think that’s not my scene.
What are the 5 must-haves in your wardrobe?
Hanger, a drawer, jeans, T-shirts, underwears
What does a man look best in?
I can’t look at a man like that! (Smiles) You have to tell me what do you think a man looks best in…
Tell us about women then…
Women (sighs)! …in a two-piece bikini.
Who are your favourite designers?
I wear clothes of Arjun Bhasin; so he is one of my favourites among Indian designers. I like Armani and DKNY among foreign ones.
What was the first fashionable thing that you bought with your first pay cheque?
I don’t remember that.
What is your most expensive buy so far?
Has to a suit from Armani…that’s the most expensive thing I have bought till date.
Where do you generally shop at?
Generally I shop whenever I am travelling abroad, with a film, or on a holiday. That’s the time I generally go out shopping.
Are you brand conscious?
Yeah! I like to dress up in brands; not for any stupid reason, but because I see certain standards and quality maintained in branded products.
Who is the best dressed man in Bollywood?
I don’t care. I don’t look at them like that.
And what about the best-dressed woman in Bollywood?
Would be (pauses)…Katrina Kaif.
What does your wife (Prerna) look best dressed in?
Everything…I want to score points on this one, yaar. I can’t say one particular thing…everything she wears, she looks fabulous.
