Q) What excited you about Spoyl to collaborate with us for your collection? What are you looking forward to with this collaboration?
A) Spoyl is a great platform for me to connect with my audiences through my style. Watch out for ‘The Boyfriend T-Shirt’
Q) Everyone knows you have a great taste in fashion. What inspired you to design your collection?
A) Everyone knows that I have a very laid-back and casual style and SPOYL gave me a great platform to showcase casual wear for every occasion and still make a statement.
My collection, as you will see, is inspired by my personality, thoughts and something that I strongly believe in with a hint of humour. I am quite positive that my fans will love the collection.
Q) Talking about your stardom, what was your best pinch-me moment?
A) There are many, but the one that comes to me right now is when I had gone back to Delhi after ‘Remix’. I honestly did not anticipate the response that my character got and there were people stopping me on the street for an autograph or just to catch a glimpse. That feeling is something that always drives me.
Q) Would you shave your head for a role?
A) Yes! No! Maybe! It depends on the script. If my character demands it, sure, why not? Bring it on! Having said that, I am almost obsessed with my hair, so the role has to be a pretty big deal for me.
Q) What would you like to wear on a date night?
A) I don’t believe in getting ready especially for a date. I would rather be myself all the time and not pretend to be somebody else. This, however, doesn’t mean that I will go dressed shabbily on a date looking like I am going to the gym.
It could something like a T-shirt, denim and a cool pair of shoes. I really feel that good footwear says a lot about you. Ideally something semi-casual depending on the location.
Q) Do you want to share with our readers about a memorable moment from your school days at St. Marks?
A) I studied at St Mark’s Senior Secondary High School. I was one of the students who loved going to school. I have many memorable moments from my school days. My mother was the vice principal of the school so there haven’t been many mad or naughty moments. I was a part of the drama society, the music club, debate club and all kind of sporting activities. But cricket and football topped the list.
Everything related to cricket has been memorable. There was a fashion based competition in Delhi. Over 23 schools participated and I represented my school there. That was another memorable moment because this led to a lot of people accepting me with the fact that I was talented enough and not just the vice principal’s son. My school friends are still my friends. My school life was definitely memorable!
Q) What would be your advice to our readers on how to make it big in life?
A) Stay true to who you are and keep working hard. Also, don’t forget that one hobby you love and make time for it. .
