He is an outsider in Bollywood and with debut in the role of a sperm donor, ‘Vicky Donor’ and recently as a groom who is dealing with erectile dysfunction in ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ Ayushmann Khuranna has proven to be a class apart.This Chandigarh dude loves to experiment not just with roles but has also emerged to be a make-you-sit-up-and-take-note kinda dresser, both on and off the red carpet. There is rarely a dull moment in Ayushmann Khuranna’s unique style files. Given the multi-faceted individual that he is, straddling the worlds of cinema, music, theatres and writing — Khurrana’s style is rather off-kilter and a pastiche of ideas and influences.
From his penchant for statement pleats and drapes to his inclination towards asymmetrical silhouettes — he isn’t your average suited B-Town actor trying to hide beneath a black tuxedo. So as the actor turns 33 today, lets rewind back to his coolest style mavens on Instagram and his interpretation of style.
Ayushmann says, “I think, it’s a mix of both — you take a stylist, who has a mix of your sensibility and then you work with it. The best part about having a stylist is that she(Isha Bhansali) wants to change a bit of you at the same time, otherwise, it’ll become a routine. Isha really pushes the envelope and she experiments with me a lot so it should be in my comfort zone.”
Ayushmann says, “I guess, I wear different clothes for different occasions — I have sported track-pants for my concerts, of late, which was good fun. A pair of track-pants teamed with white keds and sweatshirts — I sported that look recently, and it’s been one of my favourite looks. These days, I’ve stopped wearing white shoes, gravitated towards brogues and leather shoes.”
Ask him about his favourite designer and Ayushmann says, “It’s need-based. If I have to have a new pair of black shoes, then I’ll buy them. I fancy certain brands when I go abroad like I love Topman Designs — it’s quite on point. So I tend to buy clothes, which are different or off-centre. I think Topman is one such brands, which should not come to India.”
The actor doesn’t like to fuss over his airport look. Ayushmann says “Mostly I take it easy with my airport looks. I may repeat my jacket and normally my stylist may or may not give me a look for airport. It’s incidental. When I’m going home to Chandigarh then I’m in my T-shirt and jeans. I don’t think much about the airport look. If you’re trying too hard for it, it’s a turnoff.”
Shoes or Watches, here’s what Ayushmann prefers to indulge in. “Earlier, I would wear a lot of sporty, colourful watches and now, I’m done with that. Now, I’m moving towards a classic style watch. I have a decent collection of watches — metallic, leather and sporty. Essentially, I’m a shoe guy and love sneakers.”
Ayushmann Khuranna says,”I think if your body is proportionate, asymmetric silhouettes look good on you. I think my body is on the leaner side so it works. The asymmetric pieces also work for people, who’re slightly bloated. It covers everything. It’s good for everyone.”
