With exactly six films behind him (one being Aashiqui 2 which sky-rocketed his acting career), Aditya Roy Kapoor has never really been one to party hard and be seen at every and any event, unlike many of his peers.
In fact, except for the odd occasion – like the one time when Aditya had been presented with the Grey Goose Style Icon Award (Male) for 2013 – he was rarely known for his style quotient!
Preferring to dress comfortably in jeans, sneakers, tees, shorts and flip-flops, Aditya was often conspicuous by his absence on the regular lists of India’s best dressed men.
Until now, that is!
With Fitoor up for release, Aditya has been making the mandatory promotional appearances across the length and breadth of the country. And we have been keenly observing the way Aditya has been dressing for these media events and interactions with fans.
Preppy, polished and looking like he’s just stepped off the ramp from an international fashion show, Aditya’s fashion sense is quite on point. From Roberto Cavalli to Paul Smith and John Varvatos to Zegna, the young star has been wearing high-end men’s wear labels with panache.
In fact, we actually thought he was being styled in keeping with the “look” of his character in Fitoor. But when we reached out to his talented stylists – Priyanka Shahani and Kazim Delhiwala of Vainglorious – they tell us, “We haven’t dressed him as per his character in the film, but rather his inherent personal sense of style, since we don’t want it to seem costumey.”

Explains the duo, “While on a day off, Aditya is no different from anybody that wants to be laid back, he’s more than happy to put on some nice duds when the occasion demands it, So he was just as excited to dress up for the events, as we were to dress him!”
In fact, Priyanka and Kazim explain that, “It would be counterproductive to pick everything out ourselves, as the last thing we need is for Aditya to spend all day wondering what we’ve thrown on him. So it’s imperative that we work on the look together.”
