This is your first show in Kolkata?
Yes... and walking the ramp for the first time in Kolkata, wearing a traditional outfit, and that too designed by Manish Malhotra... this couldn't be better.

What goes behind your recent glamorous makeover?
The credit goes to Manish (Malhotra). He worked at my looks for my film Short Kut and the results are so positive that it's hard to shun it now. In fact, Manish is responsible for changing fashion in Bollywood. Not only me, but there are several other actors who owe their style statement to him. Manish changed the face of Bollywood and is still doing so.

Since you are wearing a bridal outfit, let's ask, what will you prefer to wear when you get married?
Oh my God! Marriage is not at all on the cards at the moment. But when I get married, I would prefer to wear something like I am wearing right now... a traditional yet modern outfit with halters and sequins.
 
Who do you think looked best among the two showstoppers today: Baichung Bhutia or Ronit Roy?
I think it's Manish Malhotra... (giggles).

What do your prefer wearing off the camera?
I am a casual person... I know that's what everyone says, but then, that's a fact. We too like letting it loose at home or when with friends just like you all.
