This is the first time you've walked the ramp in Kolkata. What was the experience like?
I am not exactly a ramp person. But after this show I think I can handle both ramp and field together.
You were wearing a grey sherwani...
I thought it was an unusual colour for a sherwani, but Rocky S made it so beautiful that one can't help but want to wear it at least once. It's simple, yet elegant.
MS Dhoni is the brand ambassador for KFW, but he has not yet walked the ramp. Do you feel you have the upper hand on him?
I am part of a show, while Dhoni is the face of the entire event. Now you tell me who has the upper hand? (laughs)
Are you a fashion conscious person?
Not much. I always follow my mood while dressing.
Do you prefer traditional wear or western outfits?
See, that depends on the occasion. If there's a shaadi (wedding) or sagai (engagement), then I might go for traditional wear.
What are you most comfortable in?
Who do you think is the best dressed sports personality in India?
This is Dhoni's place [speaking of KFW], so I have to name him! Jokes apart, Dhoni is a true blue star, be it in fashion or cricket.
